If I have harmed anyone in any way either knowingly or unknowingly through my own confusions I ask their forgiveness; If anyone has harmed me in any way either knowingly or unknowingly through their own confusions I forgive them; And if there is a situation I am not yet ready to forgive I forgive myself for that; For all the ways that I harm myself, negate, doubt, belittle myself, judge or be unkind to myself through my own confusions, I forgive myself.
I’M CRYING!! I read the movie novelization of war for the planet of the apes. Apparently before the movie began malcolm had made his way to the colonel (Harrelson) to plead him to make peace with Caesar and the Colonel killed him!!! NO!!!
i’ve never really created any jimon content but here goes
simon’s been asked dozens of times if he’s okay with the fact that his ex-girlfriend and ex-girlfriend-slash-current-best-friend are getting married. and he is!!
he’s assured clary and izzy that he’s not jealous, but simon doesn’t exactly think they believe him.
ergo, thus, therefore! the only course of action is to show up to their wedding with a hot date !
this is a lot easier on paper. calling his other ex-girlfriends would probably be a good place to start, but he can’t. maia is out of the country with lily, and maureen already has a date to the wedding: rebecca, simon’s sister. #awkward
he knows that you can’t turn people gay, but it’s still a bit of a blow to his self esteem that all his exes are dating women now
anyway, his remaining list of hot, single people is pretty short
he’s not thrilled that jace is the only person left to ask, but not exactly disappointed, either
jace looks so happy when simon asks him to the wedding that he doesn’t finish his sentence, swallows the part where he was supposed to say it was to show clary and izzy he’s moved on.
simon feels a little bad about stringing jace along, at first, until jace shows up at his door on the day of the wedding with a sloppily tied bowtie and a 100-watt smile, and simon realizes that he wants this, too
it’s a beautiful wedding. luke and jocelyn give really nice toasts and no one mentions the fact that maryse and robert didn’t make the trip from idris
after clary and izzy have been pronounced wife and wife, they all dance for hours. simon lets jace lead; it seems like what captain america would want.
(”does this make me peggy carter?” “who the fuck is that?”)
“If you hold a candle close to you, its flame rises. And if you hold it
away from you, its flame shrinks. The same way you hold a candle close
to you, keep all your plans, aspirations, projects, and dreams close to
you too. Do not share your plans or goals until you complete them,
because as you hold your candle away from you — envy, jealousy, and
resentment may put out your flame before it grows.”
