spontaneous embrace

The Signs as Fleetwood Mac Songs
  • Aries: "Tusk" - like Aries, this song is forceful and dynamic. The song has an objective and asserts itself with raw, unbending power that might seem obnoxious to some and immensely attractive to others.
  • Taurus: "Gold Dust Woman" - firm, uncompromising, and powerful, this song, like Taurus, hammers home its message with blunt intensity. It tramples on the bullshit of its intended audience but not unjustly.
  • Gemini: "Gypsy" - fun, quirky, and a party favorite. "Gypsy," like Gemini, embraces the spontaneity of fleeting social encounters but shies away from emotional depth at first glance. No one really understand you or this song, but we love you nonetheless.
  • Cancer: "Landslide" - deeply sentimental, this song focuses on the subject of change. Like Cancer, it expresses deep emotional ties to the world around it even as it struggles to understand itself in relation to an impermanent reality
  • Leo: "Go Your Own Way" - well-known and well-loved, Leo, like this song, puts itself on a pedestal. Fun and playful, this song is about giving a big "f*** you!" to those who felt they could do better. Reality was you were too good for them. You go Leo.
  • Virgo: "The Chain" - written by all five members, this song focuses on the brutal practicality of unity. Virgos can relate to this song as they often sacrifice emotion or the sake of fact and practical reason which can lead to tense social relations.
  • Libra: "Seven Wonders" - though you might not be the next Supreme, "Seven Wonders" is a light and flirtacious song that captures Libra's appreciation for aesthetic beauty, no matter how permanent or transient.
  • Scorpio: "Rhiannon" - the song about an old Welsh witch captures Scorpio's tendency to play aloof and yet harbor intense emotions. Like Rhiannon, you may hurt people or push them away to protect yourself, but you ultimately want to be loved.
  • Sagittarius: "Don't Stop" - adventurous and optimistic, "Don't Stop" embodies Sagittarius' tendency toward social engagement and worldly ambition. Like this song, Sagittarius' is future-oriented and chooses to focus on the road ahead despite the past and present.
  • Capricorn: "Dreams" - despite the somewhat cosmic nature of the music, "Dreams" offers a sober understanding of relationships to which practical Capricorn can relate. This type of post-breakup clarity is one that is derived from Capricorn's logical way of looking at the world.
  • Aquarius: "Everywhere" - light-hearted, self-aware, and a little spacey; "Everywhere" defines Aquarius' inner conflict between desire for detachment and intellectual/emotional investment in other people
  • Pisces: "Silver Springs" - intense, dualistic, emotional, and deeply spiritual; this song embodies Pisces' affinity for both mysticism and complex feelings. This song is a reminder to never underestimate the depth of a Pisces' emotions.

“I feel prematurely old. I’m actually having this major belated quarter-life crisis.
I’m turning 30 in a couple of weeks. I’ve been thinking a lot about mortality.
A lot about what I’m going to do with my life and how to enjoy it.
One of the things I’m going to work on is being more spontaneous,
letting go, embracing the beauty of come-what-may.”

Chris Pine

Release a bouquet of balloons into the atmosphere when the sky cries.
Except for the red one, which you save for the lonely child who always plays by the swings.
Be fiercely kind and embrace spontaneity.
Share splashes of color with an otherwise achromatic world.
But save your heart for me.

What You Do

Can’t say anticipation
with a fishhook lodged
tightly with delegation
pushing down your throat.

Jerked from a sleep
deeper than Mariana
without thought to leap
into fresh waters.

Told to hold fast
without anything to grasp
expected to last
in endless blue eyes

tinted galaxies spanning
endlessly like her breath
embracing spontaneous planning
making use of every second left.

Never a moment wasted
always been tethered,
true expression tasted
unbeknownst for years.

Linked with loosely tied yarn
bonded without effort
zero risk of harm
always betwixt fingers.

Cigarette smoke dances
to our voices in the distance
never a drag to take chances,
you’ve given me contentedness.

This morning, on a day like any other, I looked at my phone and was overwhelmed by the messages of support and solidarity, and not because I wasn’t nominated among the 50 or 60 candidates for the Ballon d’Or. By now you may have guessed that for years I’ve been an incurable optimist, and it’s hard for me to feel resentment, frustration or above all, resignation. So do you know what I’m taking away from this incident? The spontaneous embrace I received this morning from all of you, and the media commenting on my exclusion (…) Of course, I’ll tell you in all sincerity that I thought I might be among the 5 best goalkeepers of last season. Obviously it’s gone to my head… Thank you all very much, sincerely, and if I’ve taken the time to write this myself it’s because you’ve made me feel respected, and your respect is not something I take for granted.

Happy Birthday Christopher Whitelaw Pine (August, 26th 1980)

me: *being a hardcore reylo shipper*

me: *reading star wars tfa novel*

Cheers and spontaneous embraces filled the room with so much joy that no one paid any attention to who was hugging what representative of whichever species. Rey and Poe were not excluded, though their sudden, tight clinch of shared excitement led to a moment of mutual awkwardness.

“Uh, hi,” the pilot mumbled. “I’m Poe.”

She nodded slowly, searching his face and finding that she liked it. “I recognize the name. So you’re Poe. Poe Dameron, the X-wing pilot. I’m Rey.”
“I know.” He smiled back, a little more at ease. “Nice to meet you.”

me: 


me, two seconds later:

me afterwards:

help me reylo. save me.

Cheers and spontaneous embraces filled the room with so much joy that no one paid any attention to who was hugging what representative of whichever species. Rey and Poe were not excluded, though their sudden tight clinch of shared excitement led to a moment of mutual awkwardness.
‘Uh, hi,’ the pilot mumbled. 'I’m Poe’
She nodded slowly, searching his face and finding that she liked it. 'I recognize the name. So you’re Poe. Poe Dameron, the X-wing pilot. I’m Rey.’
'I know.’ He smiled back, a little more at ease. 'Nice to meet you.’
—  So the novels actually give us a hug and meeting between Rey and Poe, when everyone is cheering and overjoyed that Luke’s map has been assembled. Not sure why such a short exchange was cut from the film, but this is probably the only canon Rey and Poe interaction we’ll get till Episode VIII so here you guys go.

Okay, so two of you messaged me about the significance of Rey and Poe’s interaction in The Force Awakens novel. I’ve searched through the book and found only two interactions between them. Please correct me if i’m wrong but I believe these are the only two interactions between them.

So they go as follows:

The Force Awakens (Star Wars) Chapter XVIII

Never one to defer in the presence of superiors, Poe spoke first.

“Kylo Ren said that the segment held by Beebee-Ate is the last piece of the map that shows the way to Skywalker’s location. So, where’s the rest of it?”

“The First Order has it.” Rey looked over at him. “They extracted it from the Imperial archives.”

Poe stared at her. “The Empire?”

The Force Awakens (Star Wars) Chapter XVII

Cheers and spontaneous embraces filled the room with so much joy that no one paid any attention to who was hugging what representative of whichever species. Rey and Poe were not excluded, though their sudden, tight clinch of shared excitement led to a moment of mutual awkwardness.

“Uh, hi,” the pilot mumbled. “I’m Poe.”

She nodded slowly, searching his face and finding that she liked it. “I recognize the name. So you’re Poe. Poe Dameron, the X-wing pilot. I’m Rey.”

“I know.” He smiled back, a little more at ease. “Nice to meet you.”

So that’s all I found; in the first interaction they were speaking in the control room (with everyone else around) right before they put the map together etc.

In the second interaction; they were introduced to one another.

Now you can make of this however you want :P I think it’s cool that these two characters had at least some kind of interaction. It doesn’t change how i feel about Reylo though; ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

So i hope that answered some of your questions :P
