My Heart For A Minute

Nine years after Jake’s tragic but heroic death, Clarke and Abby have finally gotten their lives back on track thanks to the unconditional love and support of family matriarch, Lillian Walters. As unfortunate as it seems for Clarke, she soon finds herself on the business end of her grandmother’s meddling when the aging woman adds a pre-death condition to her living will: Clarke will be gifted enough money to buy her own art gallery when she gets married to one Miss Alexandria Abigail Woods, the one girl in the world whom Clarke actually legitimately cannot stand.

Hey Valky what has happened with your legacy?

I’m very much working hard on it!! Sorry for being so damned slow, real life is a pain in the butt sometimes and I’m trying to juggle at least 10 things I have at the moment. I have a lot of pics already done, but I don’t want to start posting until I have everything ready for the entire prologue, but we will see!! I’m very far into the process, though, so I should be able to get it started soon-ish. Some unedited screenshots for you ♥♥♥:

“Meet your daughter …” You said moments before blacking out on the table, the life force slowing seeping out of you in a drench of fatigue and pain. 


When you finally came to, Rosalie was sitting beside you waiting, child in arms asleep. Light streamed in the windows behind her, indicating time had passed since the hellish labour. 

You looked at her suspicious, “I’m not dead, am I?”

Her soft voice rang into the air. “No, you made it, Y/N. You are the first woman to survive a hybrid birth.”

The most powerful form of seduction is the seduction of the mind.

The body can be seduced by textures and images and sounds. It can be overwhelmed and tricked.

The mind must be convinced completely that it can be vulnerable- that opening itself is worth the risk of being destroyed.

Just slow down.

Everything takes time. 

Stop putting pressure on yourself to do everything so quickly. 

Stop trying to lose the weight so fast. 

Stop beating yourself up for spending 10 extra minutes in the bed. 

Stop trying to hit every relationship milestone in the first few months. 

Life isn’t a race. 

You can take a second and simply breathe and enjoy what you have in that moment.

Hey to all those people telling people “ it’s not so bad, just power through the cramps” when they're on their period because it’s not an excuse to miss school/work etc.!

I had bad cramps today, but I tried to “power through it” and went to class anyways, even though my grandmother had to drive me because I couldn’t walk to the bus.

I tried to “power through it” when I started to feel like I was going to throw up in the middle of my lecture, leaving to take a walk outside in the cold to try and clear my head, even though walking made my right side feel as though it was being ripped in two.

I tried to “power through it” when I started getting cold sweat all over my body, taking off my sweater and then putting it back on two seconds later because my body couldn’t decide if it was hot or cold.

 I tried to “power through it” when spots started to appear in my vision, and just kept walking towards the exit.

I tried to “power through it” when I started to dry heave, and started walking faster.

I tried to “power through it” when my ears started ringing and the spots took over my vision and I was so so hot but shivering and my side felt on fire and twisted into knots and stabbed all at once.

I tried to power through it to the point where I collapsed in the middle of my college hallway. A stranger brought me to Outreach Services, where I lay on the floor, vomiting, for an hour until somebody could pick me up and take me home.

The school paramedics told me that I had passed out because I put too much stress on my already taxed body. My body was taxed because of hormonal fluctuations and blood loss aka my period.

Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. In the past when I’ve had cramps like this, I’ve stayed in bed and eaten strawberries and watched MASH all day.

So don’t you DARE tell me that you should “power through the cramps and do it anyways”. Powering through made me pass out. Powering through made me have to be wheeled out of the school in a wheelchair because I couldn’t keep my balance to walk. Powering through made my grandmother with osteoporosis and a tendency to panic have to come pick me up from school and help me up the stairs and almost break her hip when I started to collapse backwards on the front steps. Powering through made my 13 year old brother have to supervise me while I took a bath because I was afraid I would pass out and drown (he was super sweet about it actually; we closed the curtain and he read me Voyage of the Dawn Treader). Powering through made my mother who works to support our family pretty much on her own have to take time off work to come home and make sure I was okay.

In conclusion; If someone feels crappy because of their period cramps, leave them alone. Don’t make them do things anyways, because you might make it worse. And definitely don’t make them feel bad for not wanting to do things because of cramps; that’s the reason I even got out of bed this morning. Be nice to people on their period. Possibly buy them chocolate or painkillers. Nut don’t make them do things when they have cramps, and definitely don’t tell them “it’s nothing, power through” because cramps? Cramps can be one of the worst things you could possibly imagine.

Seriously. Fuck you all.
