the importance of vows

anonymous asked:

do you think Lexa would have betrayed Clarke again like she did at Mount Weather if she'd survived ep7?

No, she wouldn’t have.

Lexa’s entire arc in season 3 is about regaining Clarke’s trust and working towards peace and unity. Grounders and Skaikru form a reluctant alliance in season 2, but the “us/them” mentality is still very much in place, and then Lexa’s betrayal fractures whatever progress they’d made. Now in season 3, what is the first plot point we’re introduced to with Lexa’s reappearance? Her desire to have Skaikru join her Coalition. In Lexa’s words

It’s entirely different from the alliance in season 2. Skaikru becoming the thirteenth clan in Lexa’s coalition means that they effectively become part of her people. Which means that A) they would be protected against external or internal attacks since Lexa’s main responsibility as Heda is the safety of her people, and B) there would be no point in a betrayal because they are part of the Coalition she created and swore to protect.

What did Lexa say to Clarke after she took the deal at Mount Weather?

“I do care, Clarke. But I made this choice with my head, and not my heart. The duty to protect MY people comes first.”

With her offer, she is making Clarke’s people her people. She is transcending the tribalism that has been the cause of most conflicts ever since the beginning of the show in favor of unity, stability, hopefully peace.

And this is only the political aspect of it all. Because you have to take into consideration Lexa’s feelings too. And this is one of the reasons I love this character so damn much: all her layers. She is smart, pragmatic, even ruthless on some occasions (as we saw), but she isn’t a robot. She feels so much, probably more than she would like since it caused her so much pain, and her feelings for Clarke are definitely one of the reasons she suggests that Skaikru enter the Coalition. Don’t mistake this for Lexa letting love cloud her judgement and making her do irrational things for the girl she loves. As we saw earlier, there’s a great deal of logic in Lexa’s suggestion. Honestly, this isn’t about romance at all. First and foremost, this is about Lexa having to do something awful (the betrayal) and not wanting to do it again. But could she promise Clarke that she’s never going to betray her again if her people always have to come first? No. So, she thinks about the one solution that allows her to both be faithful to her duties and, if not make up for what she did to Clarke, at least be in the position of not having to do it again.

This is what her vow is about really.

She can’t erase the past, but she is promising not to do what she did again. No more Trikru vs Skaikru, just one people. And no more betrayals. Sure, this last part is more personal, but nonetheless important. If anything it’s the most important aspect of Lexa’s vow, how personal and intimate it is. This isn’t just one leader swearing fealty to another. This is one person vowing to do anything in her power to not hurt the other person again.

Lexa literally puts her life on the line to stay true to her vow and push towards unity and peace, she eventually dies for it. So the core of it all is no, she wouldn’t have betrayed Clarke.

Dear Journal,

This morning I got woken up by Lily and Teddy both jumping on the bed.

“Today’s the day! You’re getting married!” She said.

I smiled instantly. Merlin, today was the day.. I’ve been waiting for this moment since Sirius proposed in 7th year. Teddy jumped in my arms and I hugged him tightly.

“Have you slept well love?” I asked Teddy, remembering how cuddled up we fell asleep.

He nodded with a big smile on face. I kissed both of his cheeks and placed his messy curls.

“Maybe you should go wake up Padda love, we don’t want him to show up at the wedding in pyjama’s!” I said, hugging Teddy once again.

“Okay! Kissie!” Teddy said, making a kissy face.

I gave him a quick kiss and he ran to the door with Lily following him. I colapsed on my bed and smiled to myself. I was nervous but so excited to marry Sirius. I started getting ready and Lily came back with her dress on. She looked breathtakingly beautiful.

“Wow Lily.. You look amazing!” I said, hugging her again.

“Thank you Remus.. Do you mind if I get ready here? I don’t want you to be alone.” She said, her smile still present.

“It’s okay, I actually need help with my hair.. they’re a bit messy and I can’t style them properly.. Can you help me?” I asked.

She placed my curls so they would stay on place all day long. I felt a bit fancy with all those hair products in my curls!

As I was putting on my suit, I heared a knock on the door. Mum and Dad.

“Oh Honey look at you!” Mum said with tears in her eyes.

“Mum please you’re going to make me cry!” I said, hugging her small figure.

“I’m so proud of you my son.” Dad said, joining the hug.

“I love you both..” I whispered.

Teddy then came rushing in with a piece of paper in his small hand.

“Padda is awake!” He yelled, handing me the paper.

“Thank you Teddy. Do you want to go get ready with grandpa?” I asked.

“Okay!” He smiled, taking dad’s hand.

I unfolded the piece of paper and instantly recognized Sirius’ neat handwritting.

“I can’t wait to marry you my love… See you down the aisle.. Sirius xox”

I smiled and hugged the paper to my heart. Sirius was maybe a badboy heartbraker but sometimes he was just as romantic. I folded the paper and placed it into my suit pocket so it could be with me all day long. I couldn’t wait to put it in my memory box at home. I started working on my bow tie but Sirius usualy helps me with it. Mum noticed my strugle and helped me tie it beautifuly and whispered in my ear.

“You know, I always knew you two would end up together. The way you talked about him and the way he looked at you.. it was written in the sky.” She said.

“I love him so much mum.” I smiled.

“Oh honey I know you do. I’m so glad you found someone perfect for you. You found the right man.” She smiled.

She then left to go get her hair done with Lily. I was alone in my room, ready as I’ll ever be. I stared at my reflexion. One of my old scars could be seen on my neck but I didn’t think about it because I knew Sirius loves them. I took out my vows and read them again. Was it too cheesy? I hope not.. Suddently I heared a soft knock in the door. I instanlty recognized the voice.

“Moons?” Sirius asked.

“Pads? Don’t come in here you’ll break the tradition!” I said, running to the door.

“I won’t love.. I won’t.. I just wanted to hear your voice that’s all..” He said.

I leaned my back against the wooden door and closed my eyes, imagining Sirius’ face in my head.

“I’m nervous Pads..” I said.

“It’s just me love.. don’t be nervous..” he said.

“I just want to hold your hand.. It would calm me.” I said.

The door cracked open and his hand peaked in. I took it and squeezed it.

“I can’t wait to see you..” he said.

“Me too..”

After a few minutes, James entered and told me it was time. The room we had reserved was actually a rooftop from which we could see the Eiffel tower. It was beautiful. The flowers made it even prettier. Lily was holding her flowers, ready to walk the aisle with Teddy’s hand in hers.

“You can do this Remus.” She smirked.

I took a deep breath and the music started. My heart started pounding. Lily took Teddy’s hand and walked down the aisle to the music. My mum was the one walking me down the aisle. I felt safe with her by my side. She wrapped her arm around mine and smiled. That was it. It was our moment. Sirius’ and I.

I walked down the aisle and the moment I saw Sirius, I felt all my worries go away. He was so handsome. Merlin I was lucky. His black hair neatly placed, his flushed cheeks and his shaky hands. Suddently I just wanted to run and jump in his arms. He was biting his lip and tears were running down his cheeks. James had a big smile on his face and also had his hand on Sirius’ shoulder. Sirius’ eyes never left mine. He wipped his tears away and smiled. When I arrived at the altar, I gave my mum a kiss and Sirius took both of my hands. I looked into his grey eyes and he mouthed me something while the priest talked.

“We gather here to unite these two lovers in marriage..” The priest said.

“You look beautiful.” Sirius mouthed, not caring about the wedding that was going on.

I smiled and blushed.

“I love you” I mouthed back.

To be honest, I wasn’t really listening to the priest either. He was saying some nonsence! I couldn’t stop looking at Sirius. His eyes were still a bit glossy but he looked so handsome. I got woken up from my dreamland when I heared the priest say some important words.

“It is now time for you both to read your vows.” He said, nodding so I could go first.

“Hum.. okay. My dear Sirius, I can’t even put to words how much you mean to me. Believe me, I would write it in the sky, carve it on mountains and scream it on rooftops. Since the day I met you, I had this feeling in my stomach. The feeling that makes you happy. After all these years of me loving you, the feeling is still there. I want it to be there until my heart beats his last beat because I know that my heart will always beat for you. Yesterday you asked me if I thought we were meant to happen.. I would say it’s more than that. We were made for eachother. I love you so much Sirius. I will always love you, to the moon and back…” I said, looking up from my shaking hands holding the paper.

Sirius was crying and smiling at the same time. I wanted to kiss him. To hug him. He wipped his tears away and took his paper out of his pocket, his hands shaking.

“Well, it’ll be hard to top that.. okay..When I was younger.. Before I went to Hogwarts .. I always thought I would hate my life. I thought I would have to live with a pureblood wife.. I didn’t want this life.. But when I saw you Remus, I knew anything was possible. I knew i could be loved and more important, i knew I could be with someone I love. I was always taught that love wasn’t real. That you couldn’t fall in love. But when I saw you I found it hard to believe. Imagining my life without you is painful. You are my whole world Remus. We’ve been through so much.. I love you.. to the moon and back…” he said, tears running down his cheeks.

I was also crying. Merlin I loved him so much. I extended my hand to wipe his tears away which made our family and friends laugh. The priest smiled and continued talking.

“Remus John Lupin, do you take Sirius Orion Black to be your husband? Do you promise to be faithful to him in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, to love him and to honor him all the days of your life?” He asked.

I smiled and looked into Sirius’ eyes.

“I do.”

“Sirius Orion Black, do you take Remus John Lupin to be your husband? Do you promise to be faithful to him in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, to love him and to honor him all the days of your life?” He repeated.

“I do” Sirius said, looking into my eyes.

“ I can now pronounce you.. Husband and Husband!” The priest laughed. “You may now kiss.”

Sirius layed his hands on my cheeks and crashed his lips on mine. It was the best kissed we ever shared. Our family and friends were all cheering. Teddy ran to us and Sirius picked him up so we could have a family hug.

We spent the night with our friends and family. It was amazing. Everyone was so happy for us. We danced a lot! It was the best night of our lives. James even made a speach using only words with no a’s which was pretty funny to listen to. It was perfect.

When it was getting really late, everyone came back to the hotel. Teddy was asleep in his car seat and it was adorable. James and Lily were going to babysit him for our first night as husbands. James had told us that they would take care of him and we could have fun.

“C'mon we all know you’re going to have some fun.. Soooo we got you two a royal suite!!” James said, smirking.

“Are you insane!!” I said.

“Nope! You two go have fun.” He smirked, giving us the royal suite key.

Sirius and I walked to the room and it was beautiful! The bed was giant! Sirius and I laughed because we always joke about how we can both sleep in a single bed, cuddled up. Just like our Hogwarts times.

“Okay, my dear husband, now we get you out of this suit.” Sirius laughed.

We both undressed slowly. Sirius kissed every inch of my body while my hands touched every inch of his. His broad shoulders were full of marks. So was my neck and collarbone. Our hands tangled in eachothers hair. It was slow and pleasurable. We kissed and kissed and kissed.. It was perfect. Being alone with Sirius made me happy. Plus, he kept calling me “husband” and I couldn’t stop smiling. Once we collapsed on the bed, panting and sweating, Sirius laughed.

“Oh my god..” Sirius said.


“We just had sex for the first time as husbands!” He said.

I just started laughing.

“Merlin you’re so funny!” I giggled.

“C'mere.. I want to cuddle you.” He said, wrapping his arms around me.

“Your vows were beautiful..” i said.

“You think so? Yours made me cry!” He chuckled.

“I love you.” I said, kissing him.

“I love you too baby.”

“Wanna get some sleep?” I asked.

“Yeah.. I’m exhausted.. Goodnight my Husband.” He said, kissing my forehead and then my lips.

“Goodnight my husband.. It’s weird to finally say it.” I chuckled.

“It is. But i can get use to it. It suits you well.” He smiled.

“I love you Sirius.” I said.

“I love you too.”

We fell asleep cuddled into one another. His hands on my bare back and mine on his bare chest. We were united. We were finally married.

don’t imagine them reading their wedding vows to each other and finally saying “I do” while guests have tears streaming down their faces because they realize they’ve just witnessed true love right in front of them
12 Things to Know After the OUAT Musical
Ginnifer Goodwin promises a togethery finale, so have no fear!

So was that not the best dang thing you ever did see?

Once Upon a Time just debuted its musical episode, which also doubled as a long-awaited wedding between Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) and Captain Hook (Colin O'Donoghue).

The basic gist was that back when Snow was pregnant with Emma and Regina’s curse was imminent, she made a wish that she would have everything she needed to give Emma a happy ending. That wish was answered by the Blue Fairy, who made everyone in the kingdom sing for a day, so she could then give those songs to Emma, so she’d always have the people who loved her in her heart.

It ended up being pretty handy, because Emma was able to use that song in her heart to keep the Black Fairy away just long enough to successfully get married to Captain Hook, and everything was perfect for just long enough to sing a group number before the new curse hit and darkness fell over everybody.

Here’s everything you need to know about what comes next:

1. The curse keeps most people in Storybrooke, geographically.

“Emotionally, they are all over the map,” Ginnifer Goodwin told reporters of the finale after a screening of tonight’s episode. Though EP Adam Horowitz called it “a combo platter kind of curse,” meaning some people might end up somewhere totally different.

2. And this is a new curse, unlike curses they’ve done in the past.

“We’re well aware that we’ve done a curse occasionally in the past on the show,” Horowitz said. “But this time we’re trying to do a little twist on it.”

“I would say that the final battle and the curse are all tied in one, and the first act of the finale will make sense of what we’re doing this time,” EP Eddie Kitsis added.

3. The process of breaking this curse is going to be extra dramatic, and “togethery,” according to Goodwin.

“The breaking of the curse involves something far more dramatic than anything that’s ever broken a curse before—if it were to break! I am not saying it breaks! We could all just be blown into oblivion and that’s just it,” she said. “What broke the very first season’s curse was the kiss, a very pure unromantic true love expressed between mother and son. The love that it takes in the finale in order to do what has to be done to break the curse, I feel is categorically bigger.”

4. Kitsis and Horowitz “can’t promise” that everyone will make it out alive!


5. Emma cannot use the power of song in the final battle.

“Making a musical is hard,” Horowitz said. “We’re not doing it in the finale. That was hard work.”

6. Belle will be in the finale, despite not appearing in the musical episode.

“Belle and Rumple are going to be tested, and everything that they ever wanted is going to be very temptingly close for Rumple,” Kitsis said. “But like everything, it comes with a price.”

7. If the show doesn’t get picked up for a season seven, everyone should be satisfied by the finale.

“I would say that if this was the series finale then you would have the usual opinions on a series finale, ranging from the best ever to the worst ever because that’s the internet,” Kitsis said. “What I would say for fans is that it will be complete, so they will not have any dangling threads where they’re like, ‘I can’t believe they!’ We’re not going for a crazy ending that everyone goes, ‘Well, what does that mean?’ And ‘I feel unsatisfied’ or ‘I’m not feeling like you came for the characters’ or whatever. … We feel like we’ve completed this story and the next chapter of Once Upon a Time will be completely different.”

“They’ve honored these characters and this part of the story, this part of their journeys,” Josh Dallas said. “I think each character gets something that the fans should be happy with, that each character deserves.”

8. If a season seven does happen, it will be a bit of a reinvention.

“I think the way we sort of look at it is these are stories for these characters and there are set end points to different stories but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t new stories for different characters,” Horowitz said. “So I think that by the end of the season finale, a lot of what we’ve been doing for the last six years is wrapped up in a very satisfying way and then we move forward in a way that at the end of it, hopefully you’ll see what we’re hoping to do in season seven.”

Kitsis added:

“I think if there’s one thing this show has done, it’s reinvented itself every year and so this show has the ability to be many different shows so we feel like creatively it’s time to end a few stories but the new show, we feel like this is the kind of show that regenerates. And I think when you see the ending you’ll go, ‘Oh yeah!’”

9. According to Goodwin, Snow was very attracted to her singing husband.

“My first choice was that when he comes in I get a little hot under the collar from he’s singing,” she said. “And I feel you can see me kind of blurry in one of the angles going ‘ohhhhh…’ and they didn’t feel that that worked for the storyline of the actual song so I was asked to keep on the track of ‘why are we singing?’”

10. Hook and Emma’s vows were just as important to the showrunners as they were to anyone else.

“We knew that the wedding would be a big deal, but we knew that the vows would be a big deal, and we didn’t want them sung,” Kitsis revealed. “We felt like, in that moment, the audience who was a fan of those two as a couple has waited since Season 2 to say that—they don’t want it in a song with a hundred people. We wanted to really just slow the moment down and let it be between the two of them, and then have everyone come into it. It probably went through a lot of different iterations.”

11. Rumple was never going to sing.

“I would say you saw his email,” Kitsis said of Robert Carlyle, who didn’t sing a note in the episode.

12. The theme of the two hour finale is “belief,” but of course there’s a twist.

“It’s kind of shocking how well they created something open-ended that could be seen as—I mean in classic Once Upon A Time style, there is a twist,” Goodwin said. “The twist means that it could go either way, and it serves all of the characters very well.”

Is it Heathers or Dear Evan Hansen?

Our protagonist is an emotionally overrun social nobody trying to say optimistic despite their bleak world view. They have their desires granted by a dishonest act which puts them in the center of attention. They suddenly find themselves partially responsible for the death of a classmate as a town is turned on its head by teenage suicide. The protagonist then puts on a charade for the better half of the show before everything comes to an explosive climax in which they nearly lose it all, but learn a valuable lesson along the way about the things that are most important, and vow to change for the better.

i understand stand why everyone is super mad at robert, believe me i do, but why is no one talking about aaron? i get how hard it is in there but he's breaking his vows too, he's the one thats doing drugs and saying he doesn't care about how robert feels, i understand the anger at robert but why does it all feel so one sided again

anon, i feel you.

i honestly do.

i, too, am mad at robert, but i’m also mad that this automatically gives aaron a pass again. everyone focusing on the wrong robert did (and yes it’s so much fucking worse than what aaron did), but aaron is the catalyst. they react so strongly against and for each other and it’s the thing i’m most in love with them for. yes it’s destructive and awful, but it’s also good storytelling and i can understand why emmerdale play them that way.

that said, robert fucking up always seems to happen when aaron does, and then aaron’s are overshadowed because robert’s are always ten times worse. which i can understand, because robert is a ten times worse kind of person, but it makes it so one sided and then the fandom reacts accordingly and i cry internally.

they’ve both broken vows and i think it’s important to note that. yes, what robert did was worse, but that doesn’t negate the fact that aaron’s broken his too. (i understand the circumstances, don’t think i don’t, and i can’t begin to imagine how awful it is, but there are other ways of handling his situation, and he’s been practically offered them, but he’s chosen such a dangerous path and isn’t telling robert. no, robert might not be able to do anything, but he promised things in his vows too… )

i love aaron. i love robert. they’ve both made mistakes of varying degrees of awfulness, but i really want them to have an Adult Conversation about it and be better and just love each other in the destructive and all-encompassing way they do.


For @godlingcaptainchristina. Canon-era, developing ExR. Of sorts.

“Go with solidarity, my brothers, and soon we will see all of Paris roused to our Cause and rallied to our Call!”

Enjolras’s words were met with a round of cheers, bringing the meeting to a close. Enjolras shared a smile with his closest lieutenants before sitting for the first time in over an hour. His break would be only temporary; time was a luxury only the bourgeois could afford and more preparation was needed. But even as Enjolras gratefully accepted a cup from Combeferre and took a sip, he scanned the room, something amiss even with his mind otherwise occupied.

It took him a long moment to realize that there was no glaring error present; rather, what struck him as wrong was the absence of a constant: Grantaire, the libertine and resident cynic who nonetheless was as consistent a presence as darkness to the night. It took him a moment longer to scan his memories and realize that he had not seen Grantaire some four meetings hence, an oddity that he felt remorse at not realizing earlier. “Where is Grantaire?” he asked Combeferre in an undertone, hoping not to draw attention to the question.

Combeferre shook his head, not looking up from the pamphlets spread in front of him. “He has not been here a few weeks, I don’t think,” he said, confirming Enjolras’s realization. “Surely you noticed? There is a reason our meetings have gone undisturbed of late by the fumes of wine and rants of nonbelievers.”

OMG a wedding? Deets please lol

Yes, they do get married! ^^; I don’t have a lot of details on it, and I imagine it’s nothing fancy…just a very small ceremony close to their cabin with lots of drinking following it. Neither of them are very religious: Jonghyun is atheist and has a for anything related to the Maker/Chantry since that shit was pushed on him in the Circles, and Jinki isn’t a super devout worshiper of Dalish gods/goddesses. His following of the rituals/religion is more related to wanting to be part of the Dalish culture, if that makes sense, than any respect or worship for higher powers.

They do still incorporate a bit of Dalish vows, because Jinki’s culture is still important to him, and Jonghyun mirrors it with his own (entirely secular) declaration of love. ^^ Their guestlist is pretty small, I imagine – just Taemin, Jongin, Seungwan (and maybe her partner who I still haven’t decided on yet), Soojung, plus a male mage from the nearby village that Jonghyun befriended (I imagine this to be Jongdae, but I’m not 100% set on it). Jongdae’s actually indirectly the reason they get married – when he first met Jonghyun, he was a bit flirty, and Jinki realized some people might not see them as a couple because they don’t really do PDA and they seem like too odd of a match for people to figure out quickly. Neither of them thought about marriage before, since they didn’t grow up with it as a possibility…mages weren’t legally allowed to while the Circles were around, slaves in Tevinter couldn’t, and Jinki had never witnessed a same-sex wedding in his time with the Dalish.

Because Taemin is there, the after party is pretty wild, but the guests head to the inn in the nearby village to stay the night to give Jongyu their privacy….but they’re too drunk and tired for anything, so Jinki just carries Jong over the threshold to their cabin (he’s REALLY drunk) and they pass out together in bed. ^^; The fun stuff happens in the morning~

(also this post has been edited beceause i originally said baekhyun instead of jongdae cause i forgot he’s tranquil lmao…fcked up my own canon)

I’ll probably never post a full fic of their wedding stuff, so I’ve put some of the dialogue crap I drabbled long ago below a cut. ^^

When Melinda Grube was in grade school, a male teacher told her that “women are not in the historical record, because they never did anything important.’’

She vowed then that she “would never allow anybody to say that to me again.” Grube, now armed with a PhD in women’s history,  is a historical interpreter at Women’s Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls, working to make sure girls now hear a different message.

What it’s like to relive women’s history, told at the Seneca Falls national park

The adoption vow. Very important in Republic Commando and in Mandalorian culture in general. It’s given in True Colors, Order 66, 501st, and Traviss’ dictionary as Ni kyr'tayl gai sa'ad. The dictionary points out that it literally is “I know your name as my child.”

The thing is, and this bothers me greatly…. to know is kar’taylir, pointed out in both Triple Zero and the dictionary, not kyr’taylir. (One letter difference there, Traviss.)

Kyr means end and typically it’s in words that denote an end of some kind: kyr’am (death, so it’s further words relating to death and killing), kyr’vhetine (harvest, the end of the fields), kyryc (last). Good time to plug @izzyovercoffee discussing kyr as part of this postTaylir is to hold, to keep, to preserve.

If anything, Ni kyr’tayl is less “I know” and more “I no longer hold”. It sounds less like an adoption and more a disowning?

When I was first musing over this, izzyovercoffee said, quote: “It can denote the end of one’s life and the start of another, ie harvesting the fruits of one’s summer into adoption, but that would probably be far more ancient and over the years truncated — so the contextual meaning no longer matches literal translation.”

I mean, we both admit that this probably isn’t at all what Traviss intended.

But it is a lovely thing to keep in mind if one doesn’t want to retcon it. But, if one does, just change that one letter. Ni kar’tayl gai sa’ad.

Wedding vows? I guess just for Shiro unless you are cool w/ 18 yr olds marrying?

Hahahahahahahahahahhahahahaha nope, no 18 year olds getting married, they too young for that! Let them enjoy their youth~

*Shiro is a wreck, he honestly has no idea how he’s going to do his vows, help him someone

*He seeks the advice of commander Holt for this.

*They have a long discussion on how he needs to make these vows serious yet sincere, about things that are important to the both of you and how much he loves you and wants you as his s/o

*When he finally gets to writing them, it takes him several days, an entire notebook, half the trash can, and a lot of Red Bull before he finally has written what he considers the most perfect wedding vows to recite to you.

*You can bet his sweet ass he’s going to start practicing reciting the vows.

*Vows will include lines such as “My heart, my soul, my love, and my life, I gladly give it all to you, and I would do so over and over agin. I promise to love you for longer than eternity. You are my universe, and I promise I will defend you with my life.”

*There is not a damn dry eye after he recites his vows.

Jungkook Scenario: Forever and Ever.

Request: You’re saying your wedding vows to Jungkook and get super shy about it.

Genre: Fluff / Romance

The biggest day of your life finally arrived and you hadn’t expected it to be this soon. It felt as if you weren’t quite awake for it, still trapped in the dream of imagining this all, the preparations, the dress, the decorations, the rehearsals to attend, the invitations to friends and family; you’d gone through all of that and it was just so surreal to be now at the final step.

Everybody was waiting for you, Jungkook included. A smile took over your lips while you thought of your soon to be husband standing near the altar, with his pristine fancy suit and a smile just for you, would he think you looked as pretty as you felt? You hoped that, taking a look at yourself on the mirror, finally clad in your white wedding dress, with your veil and thin tiara on your hair that was done prettily for the special occasion, with your selected bouquet on your hands and everything on place.

You laughed a little at your racing heart, you were so happy and so nervous at the same time, you just wanted to be there already, have your wedding ring on your finger, to say I do and finally become Mrs. Jeon. That thought still managed to make your heart go even wilder.

You breathed deeply and tried to calm yourself while reaching the church, this was your day and you had waited for this, you knew Jungkook had waited for it too and now you were living it so you might as well enjoy the most of it.

It all happened so fast you only truly snapped awake from your daydreams when you were in front of the doors and you could hear the music to receive you starting. You closed your eyes for a moment to take a deep breath and then the doors were opening. Your eyes roamed around the inside but not for long since you found what you were looking for.

Jungkook was standing on his assigned place and even from that distance your eyes met, it was as exciting as it was soothing, and you felt your emotions invading you whole. This was it, this was it and you finally made the first step that was going to lead you inside to meet him.

Trump is not antineoliberal. He is attempting to be a charismatic fascist which fully included supporting capitalists and a managerial class

Agreed. But he has been heralded, by many on the Left, as a “sign of the times,” i.e., as a rejection of the neoliberal policies of globalism/unilateral free trade that led to the loss of American manufacturing jobs overseas. Trump ran on an anti-globalist, protectionist platform. He has bowed out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, plans to divest millions from the World Bank, and vowed to slap high tariffs on overseas imports/restructure NAFTA, etc. 

So on the one hand there is no doubt that his election presents a negative reaction to neoliberal economic policy. But my point is that it can’t just narrowly be defined as that. Not only because, as you point out, he fully represents the interests of Wall Street and abides by neoliberal conceptions of the state, etc. But also, because Trumpism/ “neofascism” as a phenomenon is not what happens “after” neoliberalism but might be internal to neoliberalism itself as mode of ensuring that “after” doesn’t come about. I guess the question is if an anti-globalist neoliberalism can exist, and whether it might not be its next iteration.

edwin week, day 6 i’m late, whoops: promises

kept on both sides

description: she finds out the story behind his biggest scar.

Did she know, at the time, how much effort it would take to keep that promise?

I’ll only cry tears of joy.

And on his side: I promise that those will be the only ones you need.

Did she know he would rip years off the end of his own life to keep that promise? Did he not realize telling her would compromise hers?

“You did what?”

Her fingers spasm toward the raw edges of the scar he shows her. She thinks maybe if she touches it, she can heal it with sheer force of will—that maybe she can send some of her own life into him.

But she pulls her hand away. Maybe it never moved in the first place.
