Ok, first off, I actually really like the Jaia twist, but…anyone want to talk about the problematic bit of Jace starting a relationship with someone who has physically assaulted him, tried to kill him, etc, anyone want to talk about the problems of female on male violence in relationships? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
Not looking for trolls thanks, just trying to raise awareness a little, cause this is problematic guys…violence isn’t cool or right or awesome just because it’s a hot girl committing it.
(To be clear, not suggesting it isn’t sometimes justified, or that the Clave wasn’t being total racist dicks this week, just that patterns of violence can be problematic and should be carefully discussed and considered, no matter who is committing the violence)

Kiss the Pain Away
On an icy day, long ago, two girls, named Anna and Elsa, skated. Anna’s constant insistence and provoking finally convinced Elsa to skate on the frozen lake near their home. The adults were still asleep as the sun gently broke over the snowy hills. The snow gently nipped their noses and they giggled happily. The cold air formed stalactite icicles while the cold mist refreshed anyone who would walk through it. Anna’s strawberry brown pigtails bounced against the crystal buttons on her black dress. But it was the perfect French braid and blue finery that distinguished Elsa as the oldest.
“C'mon, let’s race!” The earliest memory Elsa had was when Anna’s face transformed into a toothy grin whenever they went ice skating. Even though Anna often tripped and fell and wobbled on the ice, she couldn’t have been happier. But, that happened a lifetime ago. Before the accident. Before Elsa’s powers began to separate her from Anna. Before everything changed. It would have been a happy day if not for one incident.
“Elsa! Elsa!” Anna waved her hands. “Look at what I can do!” Anna skated very quickly, building up speed. At first, Elsa thought nothing of the action. Anna continued to skate faster and faster, pumping her arms in order to gain momentum. When Elsa realized Anna jumped and attempted to spin in the air, she feared for the younger girl’s safety.
“Anna, look out!” Elsa threw her hand out, but it was too late. Anna, for a few seconds in the air, spun with a smile on her face. Elsa watched as that smile turned into gasp as Anna landed on the ice and slid on it. Elsa skated to Anna’s location as quickly as she could.
Elsa followed a smear of dark red coming from where Anna had landed to where Anna sat, holding her knee.
“Ow!” Anna cried and held her knee. “It hurts!”
“Oh no!” Elsa covered her mouth in shock. “It’s bleeding!”
Elsa almost hyperventilated. Her parents had specifically told her not to take Anna out ice-skating because of how dangerous it was. When Anna slipped on the ice, her knee skid across it. Now her sister was bleeding, Elsa knew she was in very big trouble, especially if anyone found out and told their parents. She looked around and to both her relief and panic found no one else around for miles. The relief came in that no one would tell her parents, but the panic came in that Elsa was still stuck with a crying Anna with a skinned knee.
The worst part was seeing Anna hurt. Elsa had hurt her. She had a horrible habit of doing that.
“Aah!” Anna winced and a tear fell to her cheeks. Elsa’s guilt grew as did the sinking feeling at the pit of her stomach.
“It’s okay!” Elsa tried her best to calm the younger girl down. “It’s going to be okay.” Elsa thought very hard about what their parents would do at this moment, on how to calm Anna down. Elsa remembered how she got a paper cut one time and their mother came in and kissed it. While it didn’t do anything to heal the wound, Elsa felt much better because of it. Just like that, Elsa thought of a way to ease her sister’s pain.
Elsa leaned down and placed her lips on Anna’s bloody knee. She gave it a quick peck and Anna’s crying died down a little.
“What are you doing, Elsa?” Anna asked, trying very hard not to cry.
“Kissing it. It’ll magically get better.”
“It will?” Anna wiped the tears from her eyes.
Elsa nodded. “How do you feel now?”
“A little better.” Anna sniffed before she took Elsa’s hand and pulled herself up.
“If something ever hurts you again, I’ll kiss the pain away.”
There’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold And she’s buying a stairway to heaven And when she gets there she knows if the stores are all closed With a word she can get what she came for
And she’s buying a stairway to heaven
There’s a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure And you know sometimes words have two meanings In the tree by the brook there’s a songbird who sings Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiving
Uh, makes me wonder, uh, makes me wonder.
There’s a feeling I get when I look to the west And my spirit is crying for leaving In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees And the voices of those who stand looking
Uh, makes me wonder, uh, makes me wonder.
And it’s whispered that soon if we all call the tune Then the piper will lead us to reason And a new day will dawn for those who stand long And the forest will echo with laughter
If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow Don’t be alarmed It’s just a spring clean for the May Queen Yes there are two paths you can go by but in the long run There’s still time to change the road you’re on
And it makes me wonder…
Your head is humming and it won’t go in case you don’t know The piper’s calling you to join him Dear lady can’t you hear the wind blow and did you know Your stairway lies on the whispering wind
And as we wind on down the road Our shadows taller than our soul There walks a lady we all know Who shines white light and wants to show How everything still turns to gold And if you listen very hard The tune will come to you at last When all are one and one is all To be a rock and not to roll
