How do you feel about him now?”
I paused at this unexpected question, and inhaled some vapour to give myself time to think of a suitable answer. I briefly considered lying, before realising that my alcohol-clouded brain had no choice but to be honest.
“I don’t really know. I loved him. And he didn’t love me. Or maybe he did to begin with, but he certainly didn’t when it ended. So I’ve trained myself not to love him. Life’s too short to waste time longing for someone who’s never going to want you.
excerpt from a book I’ll never write #2 // vapour
Y’know what the BatB remake could’ve done with the expanded role of the Enchantress? Made her the Beast’s mom as a spirit or something.
Think about it. The movie draws a lot of attention on how his mom died and how it messed him up and left him vulnerable to the influence of his (reportedly) dickish father. What if the Enchantress in the remake was the spirit of the Queen coming back to teach her son a valuable lesson and at the very end after she undoes the curse they have a little moment and resolve that part of the new character arc they set up for him but didn’t really deliver?
when u have a crush on ur best friend and u dont know if u should ask them out or not and ur scared if they say no itll ruin the friendship
Okay, serious talk here (for once). The only 2 serious crushes I’ve had in my life were my best friends and these were definitely not fun situations. The first was when I was 17, and it was the first time I ever felt anything serious about anybody. I ended up telling them because my emotional stability couldn’t hold up around them anymore, after many many months, and I actually broke down in front of them. And the result of my emotional confession? They turned me down. Amazingly, we stayed best friends tho! (even after a second time I had to admit I still had feelings for them, but that’s not worth talking about). The point here is, I told them and things stayed fine between us! I didn’t exactly feel better, but after a while, I eventually did. It helped that they got a girlfriend soon after (ha, did I say helped? I meant ‘destroyed me’) and that made it so I had to move on.
Well, the friendship didn’t last, just before I turned 19 I realized how much of an asshole they really were and they’ve been erased from my life, but that was definitely for the best. I just want you to do what feels right. Relationships that start with friendship are the best (from what I’ve heard) and telling them your feelings shouldn’t ruin things, even if they say no. If they’re a good friend, they’ll still be your friend. You’ll be alright :) ♥♥
