I love Mor and Azriel. Individually and as a ship. I think I came out of ACOMAF shipping them harder than FeyRhys or Nessian (Elucien kind of crept up on me but well, that’s just me) but Moriel have such a beautiful dynamic I adore it. I think that a lot of people ship them but they’re quite passive about it? They’re not very many people’s favourite ship so they appear a bit overlooked and underrated.
Which is a shame because they’re such a rich, complex pairing? Of all the sort of main pairings in this fandom Moriel absolutely have the most history. FeyRhys and Nessian are very recent and Elucien (bless them) have spent a total of like ten very stressful, not very romantic minutes together. But Moriel have 500 years of this rich, intense history to delve in to and I love that.
I think I enjoy that aspect of them. I enjoy the build up, I enjoy the tension, I enjoy the fantasy kind of aspect of it? It’s almost something that’s too good to be true so it’s easier to never try and seize it in case it shatters the dream? There’s something almost forbidden about it; but not in the traditional sense. It’s something they’ve forbidden themselves kind of thing? And I think they’re both aware of it but both too wary to cross that line.
But that’s another thing I enjoy. They’re so respectful of each other? They both have boundaries and reasons for stepping all the way up to that line between them but never crossing. And neither of them pushes the other. They respect each other. They trust each other. They love each other and so they don’t push.
Mor never tries to tell Azriel that he’s worthy or just try and talk him out of his insecurities. They’re deeply rooted and she understands all of them and before he is ever her lover he is her friend and her family and that comes first. And Az never tries to convince Mor that the reward is worth the risk she thinks their relationship runs; of changing the dynamic of the group that they’ve both built around themselves to be their family, their world.
So yes, I have an awful lot of love for Moriel and they’re a dynamic I personally love playing with. I’m really hoping we get to see a lot more of them in ACOTAR 3 and that they’ll get some really nice development. But I’m also really scared for them and I can see them having quite a sad, tragic ending which I hope we don’t get but I am bracing for. However long SJM let’s us keep them though, and whether or not they ever go romantically canon I’ll appreciate them, they’re such a rich, complex pairing and I love it.
Finchel…Definitely Finchel. I actually liked Wemma quite a bit during the first half of Season 1 of Glee, but Mr. Schuester has become so douchey of late that it’s hard for me to root for him in a relationship with anyone. Plus, it feels to me like whatever chemistry Emma and Will had together early on in the life of the series has been killed ever since they officially got together. They really feel like platonic roommates in most of their scenes together at this point.
Finchel on the other hand has chemistry to spare. I may not root for them like I do for Klaine, but I generally find that both characters become more likable when they are in a relationship with one another as opposed to when they are apart which is usually a good sign that the relationship is a pretty solid one.
I would gladly watch them with you… MAYBE. I still have no idea what it’s about :’D
Taken from the wiki because I’m a lazy ass: “Mikiya Kokutō becomes intrigued by the mysterious series of violent deaths occurring in his town and Shiki Ryōgi, a beautiful but unsociable girl. As he tries to become closer to Shiki, he realizes that Shiki is connected to the mysterious deaths and that the supernatural forces involved with both could kill him. It is revealed that in Shiki’s family, certain members of her family possess two distinct personalities, both aware and conscious of one another, but possessing different qualities. The dual consciousness, and Shiki’s upbringing as a demon hunter, has caused her to reject other human beings.
However, upon meeting Mikiya, she gradually finds happiness through their relationship and a schism develops between her two personalities. As a result, she winds up in a traffic accident and is left in a coma for two years. When she awakens, she finds herself unable to connect her past memories to her current identity. Reunited with Mikiya, now employed as an investigator for Tōko Aozaki, Shiki assists Tōko’s detective agency, Garan no Dou, whenever combat is required, while struggling to come to terms with her identity.”
So yeah. (Spoiler alert: Tōko/Touko is my favorite character. XD)
55. Tumblr friends. I mentioned them in a previous ask, but now I’ll describe them for you as requested:
Mark (dark-bat-b27) - Mark is essentially my oldest internet friend. Kinda like the younger brother I never had or something along those lines. He’s a really cool guy who loves Frozen (yay!) and Disney and superheroes and Star Wars and Doctor Who and Merlin and pretty much everything. One thing that’s always struck me as really fantastic is that, when I met Mark, he had sort of narrow views on a couple of issues, but as I talked to him, I got to sort of watch him become more socially conscious and aware, and that was really cool. Also he got his learner’s permit recently. He’s growing up and it makes me cry and want to stay off the roads. Also he is very tall and hates soup and you all need to just deal with that fact and not ask him about it.
Julie (dork.. er dawnguardian) - Julie is my dork. We’ve only known each other for a short while and I don’t even remember how I found her blog on tumblr, but I can safely say that I love her to death and she is the greatest. She’s studying environmental animation for video games, which I think is really awesome and one day we’re all going to be playing her video games and drooling over the gorgeously rendered environments therein. She and I have a standing date to watch Frozen together (not together together because we live on separate coasts) but we’re gonna chat or message or something. And it’s her first time watching Frozen, so that’s really exciting. Sometimes she gets drunk and proposes marriage. I have a hard time saying no.
siraphan - We met on account of my fanfic, I think. We worked out that we both love Frozen, Disney, muscly Wonder Woman, Gelphie, and ladies. Becoming friends with her was as easy as breathing because of those mutual interests. We both write, only she’s shy about her stuff even though she shouldn’t be. I’m slowly getting into comics because of her and we gush over Gelphie and Idina Menzel together. A lot. Hold out my sweet. Also, she likes pizza.
yamino - I almost had a heart attack when she messaged me for the first time telling me that she enjoyed my fanfiction. Because, I mean, guys, it’s yamino and have you read her work and seen her art? I mean, damn. We’ve been emailing about fanfictions and Elsanna and all sorts of other things. She leads a really interesting life and is so, so easy to get along with. And her wife sounds like the coolest person in the world and I’m not exaggerating. The pair of them together are like a celebrity power couple, and it’s great.
Honorary: patronustrip (it was mostly me laughing or crying or both at her review of my fanfic, but I still love her for it because she boosted my confidence a lot) - I don’t know tons about her. I know she’s Italian and is very picky about her fanfiction. I literally owe all of my semi-popularity to her and her review. I want to talk to her more often, but she seems busy and inundated with a thousand fan messages all the time.
31: what is your opinion of socks? do you like wearing weird socks? do you sleep with socks? do you confine yourself to white sock hell? really, just talk about socks.
Favorable. It’s one of my dearest ambitions to own and wear neat socks, and I have a few good pairs, including shark socks. But I also want dapper socks. I want socks with sheep on them. I want woolly socks, toe socks, knee socks, thigh socks. Socks are great. But never, ever, ever, ever in bed. I hate wearing socks to bed. My feet get too hot.
33: What’s your fave pastry?
I don’t play favorites with pastry.
56: what are some things you find endearing in people?
That’s kind of a broad question and also kind of difficult to answer since the things that I find endearing are usually small, specific things that are unique to a single person. Maybe it’s the way they brighten up when they talk about birds. . Maybe they have one go-to dance move that weirdly fits every single song. See what I mean? It’s all very particular.
79: what’s one of the cutest things someone has ever done for you?
Once these dweebs hid Easter eggs in my apartment and it was my very first Easter egg hunt in my whole life and it was awesome
PS Green asking a question. What's the username mean? Did I miss something? Is it from those books? Should I read those books? How does one become a lion, and a GOOD lion at that? Are you a lion? A real one? Where are ALL the good lions and how do you become one? Is butter a carb?
What’s the username mean?
Still! Sit! For though you listen long Long would you wait without the hope of song So sweet as this. As Sarah herself set down An age ago. Master work of a master’s life Of past!Sarah, and the bad break up that drove her to write poetry.
Once, years and miles away, my first girlfriend broke my heart and I wrote poetry about it. Yes, I admit it – I went through an angsty poetry phase. Anyway, I wrote a piece of poetry that included the line, “And I will be brave, like all good lions should be.” Hence the username.
Did I miss something?
Is it from those books?
No, but the bit up at the top is.
Should I read those books?
How does one become a lion, and a GOOD lion at that?
You already are a good lion, Green. One of the best <3
Are you a lion?
A real one?
Where are ALL the good lions and how do you become one?
I don’t know where they all are, but I can say with certainty that my tumblr friends rank among the very best of lions.
Is there someone here on tumblr that you wish u could meet in real life?
Okay, to be entirely honest, this is my fantasy:
I want to meet all of my tumblr friends because we’re probably all awesome and awkward in real life and how cool would it be to be real life friends?
I live a few hours away from New York City, so I would want to meet all of my awesome tumblr friends in the city and go to see Wicked together and just hang out in an awesome awkward group together and get a hotel and rent adjoining rooms and have a giant sleepover. I’m clearly 12 years old but whatever like shut up.
And this includes everybody. I wanna meet Julie and Angela and Marie and Emily and Elena and Maddy and Mark and darkdraconis (whose name I don’t know ><’) and all of my derpy anons who ask intrusive questions and all those people who reblog a ton of my stuff but never talk to me.
I'm so in love with you that it's physically painful sometimes and I don't know what to do.
Oh, sweetheart. We can’t choose whom we love. Goodness knows life would be simpler if it worked that way. The last thing I want to do is cause you pain, and I’m sorry for that. I won’t invalidate your feelings or give you that old tired line about how I’m so flattered or humbled — even though I am. It’s just… there are lots and lots of people in this world worth loving. Even though I might be one of them to you, that doesn’t preclude the possibility of somebody closer to home or somebody you haven’t met yet who’s right around the corner. What I’m trying to say (and this is gonna sound conceited, I guess) is that I don’t want you to wait around for me to wake up one day and feel differently. It closes you off to a hundred wonderful possibilities that might present themselves at any given moment, and that’s not what I want for you. You seem like a sweet and genuine person and you deserve good things.
