the heart of earth

“Be an Encourager: When you encourage others, you boost their self-esteem, enhance their self-confidence, make them work harder, lift their spirits and make them successful in their endeavors. Encouragement goes straight to the heart and is always available. Be an encourager. Always.”  
~ Roy T. Bennett

okay but what if

clarke, teasing tone: “so i guess you started using your heart and your brain while you were up there, huh?”

bellamy, smiling: “mostly just the brain. i…” [stops himself, pauses, and closes his eyes before speaking again, this time smiling sadly] “…i never really let myself get sentimental up there.”

clarke, noticing his tone and the sudden tension: “w-why is that?”

bellamy, turning to her, smiling genuinely this time, his eyes warm: “because i left my heart down here on earth.”

Made up title: unrequited love

Ohh because i cant write storys without a happy end its gonna be like that: unrequited love? :D

Tony has been in love with Peter for months now. Normally he would say something to him about that or just try to spend some time with him.

But Peter is Gamoras boyfriend. And he likes Gamora a lot. And even if he didn’t he wouldnt destroy a relationship.

So Tony spends all his time sadly watching Peter with Gamora.

Whenever they have a movie night, Peter sits beside her. Also at breakfast, lunch and dinner. And they whisper secretly together. Tony is sure they say lovely things to eachother. So he is glad, that he doesn’t hear it.

The one time that breaks his heart is, when he catches them dancing together in the moonlight. They look wonderful together and Tonys heart aches.

A month later they are on earth again and Tony has a message from Peter that he wants to meet him on the balcony. He goes up there and sees Peter in a really good looking suit.

Oh no. What if Peter tells him he wants to marry Gamora?

“C-can i have this dance?” asks Peter and he blushes. Tony is a bit speechless.

“Do you wanna practice with me for the wedding dance?” asks Tony and Peter laughs.

“Oh well was that a marriage proposal? We didnt even had our first date!” says Peter then. And what?

“What?”

And then Peter explains that he was never together with Gamora. He just talked to her about Tony all the time. And he asked her to dance with him so he could practice. Because he knows how to dance alone, but he never danced with somebody else together like that. Slow and romantic.

Tony can’t believe that. But when Peter spins him around he feels so happy that he could fly without his suit.

And it gets even better when Peter dips him and then kisses Tony.


2,199 Days

There were nights he’d sit there, huddled tight over the radio, her voice drifting across his very soul. Her words like a calming salve on the torn edges of his heart; ripped at the seam where she’d once been. The frayed strings reaching across the cold emptiness of space and the burning reentry of Earth’s atmosphere; a conundrum Raven was days from solving.

Their first priority, after stabilizing the oxygen systems had been to hug one another tightly and silently say their ‘thank you’s and goodbyes to Clarke. She had sacrificed herself once again to save her friends, choosing to meet her end in Praimfaya to give them a chance at living.

Bellamy stood beside Raven, his heart ripped in half. He’d left part of himself on Earth with her and it had just been turned to ash in a nuclear blast of apocalyptic proportions. In that moment, as he watched the tidal wave of irradiated fire engulf what had once been a beautiful blue marble, he vowed to himself that he would live for her. Every decision he made from now until the day he died would be made for her, and for the love he would carry, unspoken, tightly locked away, like a stone in his chest for the rest of his days.

After a bit of rest and mourning for the planet, they set about creating a sustainable environment aboard The Ring.

Murphy had suggested they give their home a new name. “The Ark was a tough place for all of us, one we wouldn’t choose to return to. Yeah, we had to come back to the shithole, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a better stay this time around,” he shrugged, wrapping his arm lovingly around Emori.

Bellamy nodded in agreement as Monty and Harper smiled at one another. Echo didn’t much care and Raven was ambivalent so long as it was short and easy, should she ever get the com system back up. Monty had suggested calling it The Ring, Bellamy suspected it was a bit of Jasper-inspired genius. Either way, it had stuck and they’d been The Ring Station ever since.

What the signs crave

Aries: Captivation. Someone who not only captures but holds their flickering flames of interest, someone they can’t look away from if they tried, who melts their hearts with slow burning lava.
Taurus: Fluidity. In the midst of their sturdy calm, someone who will surprise them and move them, who pushes them to their limits, who is exasperating and irresistible.
Gemini: Adoration. Someone who loves the quickness of their minds, who thinks they are the world’s most beautiful puzzle, who touches them like they are a map they will never quite completely understand.
Cancer: Security. In the depth and curves of Cancer’s love, they crave someone who is unwavering, who will forever hold their hand.
Leo: Passion. Someone whose heart burns as brightly as theirs does, someone whose fierce spirit matches their own, whose kisses are intertwining flames.
Virgo: Understanding. Someone who studies them carefully, who knows that they try their hardest, who loves their quirks and reads their bodies, who makes them feel like their every movement is a blessing.
Libra: Determination. Fearful Libras with fleeting hearts crave someone who will go to the ends of the Earth for them, someone who proves with every smile that they hold unconditional love.
Scorpio: Acceptance. Someone who knows their darkest shadows and brightest lights and loves it all, who never lets them forget that love.
Sagittarius: Freedom. The spirit of Sagittarius is untamed, and never will be; they crave someone who will travel the world with them, who looks at them like they are the universe but will always set them free.
Capricorn: Romance. The misunderstood, intricate heart of Capricorn craves boldness and sweetness, romance and adoration that overwhelms them, makes them feel like they have the world in their hands.
Aquarius: Excitement. Someone who startles them, who takes their hand and leads them to new worlds, who makes them laugh harder than they ever have, whose mind is filled with things they never knew existed.
Pisces: Fascination. Someone who delves into their worlds, who explores them and listens to their soft spoken stories at 3 AM, who theorizes and hypothesizes with them, who never tires of hearing them speak.

Use sun and moon

Sun: I crave…
Moon: I need to feel…

an earth moon’s heart is full, but she is hard like a forest floor. yet, every single day, new things grow in the forest, and form treetops and flora. it gives a home to forest animals and humans that dare to adventure into it. it’s alive and thriving, and so are earth moons.

an air moon’s heart is empty, but only because she is up in the clouds, running, dreaming, flying. she’s breathing in new experiences and emotions that don’t even exist yet. she’s found peter and she’s on her way to neverland as we speak, she doesn’t ever want to come down.

a fire moon’s heart is overflowing, you cannot keep her contained. she needs release, spirit, adventure. she’s sprinting through cities and setting everyone and everything in her way ablaze with stories, emotions and life. she’s reaching for the clouds and burning the planet to it’s core. she’s everywhere, everything and more.

a water moon’s heart is waiting at the bottom of the ocean. she’s seen everything the world has to offer and she’s not done yet. she’s catapulting into space. she’s created the oceans. she’s filled herself to the brim and she’s filling others too. she has so much to offer that her own tiny body cannot contain it all.

A spectacular amethyst heart for all my followers

Betty, don’t do that. Don’t give up. Your family is definitely splintering right now, but it won’t fall apart because of you. Because you’re holding them together. You’re so much stronger than all of the white noise. You’re stronger than your mother, you’re stronger than your father. You’re holding this family together. So don’t…don’t let go.

Geological hearts

Since it’s Valentine’s day today and love is being celebrated around our beautiful Planet and sole home, I thought I’d share a few Earthly wonders. The first is a spatter of basaltic lava ejected from Kilauea, that mighty shield of the Hawaiian Isles, our second is a cloud above Florida snapped from space, our third is a xenolith, a chunk of foreign material carried up from the world’s depths by rising magma and erupted onto the surface. The fourth is a lush Brazillian piece measuring 7 x 6 x 2 cm and consisting of a 3cm gem rubellite tourmaline sitting on a quartz crystal and my last is a hole in some lava at Nakalele Point in Hawaii. Happy St Valentines to you all.
