The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return, and the greatest songs you’ll ever know are all made over and mashed up in Baz Luhrmann’s flashy jukebox musical Moulin Rouge!, which hit theaters 15 years ago on May 18, 2001.
“Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place Suddenly it moves with such a perfect grace Suddenly my life doesn’t seem such a waste It all revolves around you”
The first time Yoongi heard Seokjin sing his new solo song, he cried. Seokjin had told him before that it was very obviously written for him. He told Yoongi that whenever he sang this song, whether in front of just him or thousands of people, he’s declaring with his whole heart that he’s in love with his own silly producer, whether anyone else knows about them or not.

Clarke and Lexa have been best friends since the first day of school. Lexa knows love is weakness but she is hopelessly in love with Clarke. Clarke is oblivious, happily dating other people.
I lay on Clarke’s bed, propped up by several
pillows, pretending to be engrossed in my worn copy of Carmilla.
But I was distracted, by Clarke. She had her head resting on my
lap and her feet hanging over the side of the bed. She was talking on
her phone, I was running my fingers through her soft, golden hair. I
told myself that it was a perfectly normal thing for best friends to
do, after all it was a typical Tuesday night for us. What wasn’t
normal was how I had to consciously stop my gaze from falling to her
lips or the bare skin of her shoulder revealed by her baggy top. Yeah
definitely not normal. I cursed myself for the inappropriate thoughts
that regularly plagued my mind. I had tried to deny it for years but
the truth was what I felt for her was anything but friendly,
somewhere along the line I had fallen completely in love with her.
But to Clarke I was just her best friend. I was the girl she shared
her lunch with on the first day of preschool and everyday since. She
didn’t see me that way.

/IMPORTANT: Please note that being in a relationship does not fix your problems. Especially depression and anxiety or other mental illnesses. Being with someone you love and who loves you back can HELP, but it is in no way a solution. If you suffer from any mental illness, and are struggling, you should seek professional help. There are many hotlines you can call for free and going to the doctor is really your best bet for dealing with these illnesses./
“And I know the scariest part is letting go.
‘Cause Love is a ghost you can’t control.
I promise you the truth can’t hurt us now.
So let the words slip out of your mouth.”
It’s been two weeks since you’ve last seen your fiancé. He’s been distant lately. He barely replies to your texts or answers your calls. When he does speak to you, he’s very short and doesn’t say much. He always seems to be doing something else.
Hoseok is a dance teacher and choreographer, so you’re used to him working a lot. But this is out of character for him. Because he’s so busy, he loves to talk and text with you because he misses you. He loves hearing your voice after a long day. You used to spend just about every night at either of your places having movie and drama marathons. Not so much now.
Normally, you’d be worried. But when you hear that flat and uninterested voice on the other side of the phone, your stomach twists with guilt. After 3 years of being together, you can pick up on the underlying hurt that’s laced in his words. You know exactly why he’s been so scarce.
You haven’t said the words yet. The three words that everyone wants to hear. You can’t bring yourself to say them. Not directly to him while he’s awake, anyway.
Growing up, the words were always thrown around without any meaning. “I love you,” was used as a band aid after someone hurt you. Your parents, your siblings, and even your few boyfriends; they all did it.
You started to hate those words. They held no happiness for you. In fact, it was the opposite. You vowed that you would never say them again. At least not until that person proved that they deserved it.
When you started dating Hoseok, you immediately realized he was different. He was happy and considerate. He was always smiling. He shone brighter than the sun. You were so drawn to him. You couldn’t help it. His warmth made you feel safe. You had less panic attacks and the depression seemed to lessen a little.
There’s a quote that always seemed to fit how you felt: “You know you’re in love when home becomes a person, not a place.” Hoseok became your home.
After two years of utter bliss, he took you to your favorite park where you had your first date. You sat on the same bench that you did when he asked you to be his girlfriend months later. He knelt in front of you with your favorite flowers in one hand and a ring in the other.
It was the first time he’d said the words. He didn’t expect you to say them back since he knew how you felt about them. He waited to use them until that day because he wanted you to know that he meant them and that he would mean them for the rest of his life.
Request: Can I maybe get a sonny x reader based off the song Come What May from Moulin Rouge? :)
Never knew I could feel like this
Like I’ve never seen the sky before
Want to vanish inside your kiss
Every day I’m loving you more and more
When Sonny first met Y/N, he never thought she was the woman that he’d fall in love with. But he did. And he fell hard. Each time he was with her, whether themselves or with other people, he felt completely helpless. Call it cliché, but she was the only thing that Sonny Carisi thought about on the job. Y/N was a prosecutor. She shadowed Barba some days in order to make applying for a state job easier. She walked into the squad room after one of those instances and she and Carisi locked eyes. Her eyes teased him but her smile was innocent. She walked off into one of the break rooms and Carisi followed her, closing the door behind him.
“You’re gonna be the death of me, ya know that?” Sonny growled as he kissed her. Y/N laughed. Something she did to provoke him. It always worked. Their lips moved together in sync. Like they knew what the other was thinking. Her kiss functioned as his Kryptonite. He was nothing without it. Y/N pulled away, her arms draped loosely around his neck.
“Get back to work, detective.” She winked before walking out of the room. He had no time to think about it anymore. All that was known was that Sonny Carisi was in love with this woman. And he had a feeling that he’d continue to fall.
Listen to my heart, can you hear it sing?
Telling me to give you everything
Seasons may change from winter to spring
But I’ll love you until the end of time
Later in the evening, after both Sonny and Y/N actually arrived home, they actually had time to themselves. It was rare that they did but they always cherished it. Y/N laid with her head on Sonny’s chest, listening contently to his heartbeat. The house was dark. Not dim but completely dark. It was alright, though. The two of them liked it. They could feel the presence of their other half and that was all they needed.
"Ya know something, doll?’ Sonny spoke, breaking the silence. Y/N hummed in response. She lifted her head up a bit to listen to him better and he continued to speak. “I’m pretty sure you’re the reason my heart beats like it does.”
“Unevenly? I think you might need to get that checked out.” Y/N joked. Sonny chuckled and the silence was back. “I know what you mean.” She spoke again, quietly this time. “You’ve changed me.” That was all Sonny needed to hear. He moved her off of him and stood up. “In a good way-” Sonny turned on one of the lights and then he was standing in front of Y/N again. He held a ring box in his hand.
“You’ve changed me too. It’s normal for things to change and this is a change I want to make.” He opened the tiny box and a Y/N laid her eyes on a beautiful diamond engagement ring. It wasn’t expensive or extravagant and that’s what both of them wanted. Simplicity. “Marry me.”
Come what may
Come what may
Come what may
Come what may
I will love you until my dying day
Y/N walked into the squad room again, wearing her engagement ring proudly on her finger. No one commented on it but Y/N didn’t mind. She knew it was true that she and Sonny were in love. Once again, Y/N was consulting on a case.
"So what-?“ She interrupted Barba when she started coughing. Over and over again until she could barely breathe. Sonny, being concerned, put his hand on her shoulder.
"You okay?” He asked, his eyes staring into hers. She tried taking a deep breath, only taking small shallow ones.
"Yeah. Probably the allergies.“ If only that was the case. Oh, how she wished that was all. About two months later, after the cough persisted and was accompanied by chest pains, even more shortness of breath and loss of appetite, Y/N thought that something more could be wrong. When she was caught hunching over the toilet, bright red liquid spewing from her mouth, Sonny made her go to the hospital. The two of them sat in the waiting room for several hours before they could see a doctor. Sonny mumbled under his breath about their timing. Y/N tried to chuckle along but a string of coughs originating deep in her chest caused he to stop.
"Y/N Y/L/N?” The doctor walked in shortly after Y/N was put in a room. After receiving several tests, including a CT and x-ray, the diagnosis came back. “…stage 3 small-cell lung cancer.”
Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place
Suddenly it moves with such a perfect grace
Suddenly my life doesn’t seem like such a waste
It all revolves around you
And there’s no mountain too high
No river to wide
Sing out this song and I’ll be there by your side
Y/N didn’t want chemotherapy. She always claimed that it would ultimately make her sicker. And that wasn’t how she wanted to go. Laying in her bed at home, she embraced the silence that was around her. But, sometimes, that isn’t the best idea. She thought about her future. Or the future that she would’ve had. Sonny was her life. He was everything to her. She remembered the dejected, terrified look on his face when she stated that she didn’t want to begin treatment right away. Their relationship hadn’t been quite the same. Sonny would leave for work earlier than usual and Y/N would stay in bed all day, only getting up for the occasional bathroom breaks. That’s only because she refused to have a bedpan.
“Doll?” The familiar voice called. He sounded skittish. Y/N hummed in response, trying to control her breathing. Sonny walked further into the bedroom, smiling weakly.
"How was-?“ She coughed again. "How-?” And again. “How was your d-?” And again. Sonny grabbed the water bottle off of the desk table and handed it to her. He wanted to be supportive. He wanted to be the good fiancé. The one who loved and cherished his woman. But he couldn’t seem to support this particular choice.
"It was fine.“ He answered. He couldn’t bare seeing her in pain. The silence was overbearing as always. Especially for Sonny. He climbed into bed next to Y/N, careful not to disturb anything. She cuddled into him. She was cold and not normal cold. No. A different kind of cold. Laying in the position, Y/N realized that this was what she fought for. She fought her parents for this man. She fought the universe and it’s sick and twisted ways for this long. Why stop now? She had to keep going. She was at least going to marry Sonny.
Storm clouds may gather
And stars may collide
But I love you
Until the end of time
It was brutal. The constant puking and fatigue was something that she couldn’t handle. Or so she thought. Sonny support helped, though. Each treatment that she got, every single appointment, he attended. The two hadn’t married yet, however. Sonny wanted to wait until Y/N was healthy but Y/N could care less. She’d be alright with marrying in the hospital. And that’s what she was trying to convince him to do.
"It’ll be-” She wheezed a bit. “It’ll be simple. And-And cheap.” Her voice was hoarse. Terribly hoarse. Sonny smiled at her and grabbed her hand in a comforting manner.
“Once you get better-”
“What if I don’t?” She wheezed. The silence reappeared suddenly and Sonny actually considered finding an officiant in the hospital and marrying this woman in the cancer ward. “Wait here.” He decided. Walking out into the halls, he tried to find the front desk. Somewhere where he could ask. Meanwhile, Y/N’s doctor walked in. He seemed to be wielding good news. At least that’s what the smile on his face seemed to say.
“The cancer cells are beginning to shrink, Ms. Y/L/N. You have a pretty good chance at full recovery.” As soon as he was there, he was gone and off to the next patient. Y/N knew that this was a blessing. One day, she’d die. Everyone dies. But she knew now that it wouldn’t be anytime soon. When she seen Sonny walking into the ward with who she thought was an officiant, her smile grew. Two good things in one day. It doesn’t get any better than that.
I just want to talk forever about Moana. I need to go see it again, but I’ve been listening to the soundtrack all morning and I have new thoughts I need to put down.
For one thing, Moana’s agency. Every single thing she does in this movie is her choice. Early on, Grandma Tala lets her know that if she stays and does what her dad wants and puts her rock on the pile (which I fucking *adore* btw) then she’ll support her. She knows she was chosen to be the ocean’s champion, but Moana has to make that decision for herself. When Moana decides it’s too much and she doesn’t want to do it anymore, she holds the heart out and the ocean takes it back. She doesn’t just fling it away. The ocean accepts that it’s her choice. When she changes her mind, the ocean doesn’t just plop the stone back in her hand like all the times it plopped her back on the boat. She has to swim down there and get it. When Heihei is captured, she’s the one who fights and goes after him. When Maui tells her to stay put so he can get his hook, she climbs right up past him and jumps in without being pushed. Everything she does is her choice.
The other is the emphasis on knowing. If you listen to the lyrics of the songs, it’s always “we KNOW the way.” “Come what may, I KNOW the way.” “Do you KNOW who you are?” “This is not who you are. You KNOW who you are.” How Far I’ll Go is literally filled with lines about not knowing and then the movie is about discovery, but it’s not “I’ll find the way” because it’s intrinsic. It’s internal. It’s about listening to yourself. “I am everything I’ve learned and more” It’s about her heritage, her culture, her descent from voyagers and this inherent knowledge she possesses if she just listens. I think that’s why Know Who You Are the second half of I Am Moana are my favorites. They’re both about listening to yourself, trusting yourself, and being confident that you know who you are and who you are meant to be.
“ she had pictured him as a younger version of his brother brandon, but that was wrong. ned was shorter and plainer of face, and so somber. he spoke courteously enough, but beneath the words she sensed a coolness that was all at odds with brandon, whose mirths had been as wild as his rages. ” // jack huston as brandon stark ; tom weston jones as eddard stark
