solace in the most beautiful form

headcanon that all apollo kids have some form of synaethesia 

  • artists who paint while listening to music and end up with the most beautiful abstracts you could ever see
  • musicians who sometimes have to force themselves to stop playing because they’re getting totally overwhelmed by the experience
  • archers who know how accurate their shot is from the trail of colour it leaves behind as it whistles through the air
  • medics who know exactly what a healthy heartbeat looks like, exactly what colour a breath should be as their patient exhales

most of them don’t even realise it’s happening, they don’t see it as a gift; for them, it’s as natural as blinking.
