the nest

so I’ve been watching my brother play uncharted 4 (finished it today!!!) and I just wanted to make a little log of all the things he says while playing bc they’re so funny:

  • (while going through a tight squeeze) “shimee shimee shimee shimee SCOOT SCOOT”
  • (walking in wet areas) *singing* my socks are wet and soggyyyyy
  • (sliding down) *straight up starts chanting the lord’s prayer in urdu*
  • “mish, I have 3 bullets and am full of fear”
  • “I. AM. ROCKET. MAN”

Everyone’s always on the hunt for a mirror. It’s basic psychology. You want to see yourself reflected in others. Others–your sister, your parents–they want to look at you and see themselves. They want you to be a flattering reflection of them–and vice-versa. It’s normal. But being somebody else’s mirror? That is not your job.

She was so much better at being alone; being alone came more naturally to her. She led a life of deliberate solitude, and if occasional loneliness crept in, she knew how to work her way out… Or even better, how to sink in and absorb its particular comforts.

Hello love! Can I ask for your favorite/literally any and all Musichetta hcs? Thank you!

Whoop Whoop here I go!

  • 6′2′’, she’s so tall, so beautiful. She’s been told so many times tall girls shouldn’t wear heels because “Men don’t like it when girls are taller than them”. Musichetta will crush them under her heel, if you think she cares.
  • Cameroonian from her father and Italian from her mother. They both met in France and stayed there ever since.
  • Food puritan. Good food takes TIME. Good food is slow cooked for 4 hours with fresh products and a sprinkle of love.
  • When she hosts, she’s one of those people who are like: “Oh it’s okay I made something simple to nibble on” *gestures towards 50 party sized dishes*
  • Gold ink tattoos. She has a trinity symbol on her wrist to symbolise Joly, Bossuet and herself
  • Rock climber extraordinaire. Goes on rock climbing hikes with Combeferre and Feuilly sometimes. Could crush a watermelon with her biceps
  • Teaches self-defense voluntarily in a Parisian university
  • So many crop tops
  • The Mom Friend™ , but not the “sweet and overbearing” mom friend, she’s the “will call you out on your bullshit and help you grow” mom friend
