Aries: Dont. Don’t start down a road that you can’t turn back fron. Don’t use me as an example. As a reason to leave bruises on un-marred skin. Don’t start something that has no good end.

Taurus: Grow. Let yourself change without fear. Let yourself love without horrors of your past coming back to haunt you. Enjoy it.

Gemini: Your presence is more of a comfort than you know. You walk in the room and I light up. I hope you know that.

Cancer: Accept this. Accept the pain and the joy and everything else in between. Know that it’s a roller coaster and you’re just in for the ride. Accept it even if you can’t enjoy it.

Leo: Stop believing rumors and lies just because they come from what looks like a trustworthy mouth. Know that everyone has an agenda and you need to see why.

Virgo: Feel better. Learn to love yourself for everything you are and everything you never could be. Accept all the pain in your past and vow to do better.

Libra: it’s okay to love someone even though they were awful. It’s okay to miss the idea of someone more then missing the actual person. It’s okay to hate them. It’s okay to change.

Scorpio: You do not take up too much space. You are not to big. You are not to loud. Do not be afraid to raise your voice. Do not be scared to stand your ground. Plant your feet and know you are enough.

Sagittarius: Listen to those old songs. Remember the way the music use to make you feel. Remember sitting in the apartment with us. Don’t pass up the chance to reach out.

Capricorn : Your halo made be held up by devil horns but I can still see it. It doesn’t dim the way your eyes shine just because you have blood on your hands. It’s time to accept that yes you sinned but you’re still beautiful.

Aquarius : Get over yourself. Get over the way you remember things happening. Get over the way it hurt. Get over it because you deserve better than what you’re allowing yourself to have.

Pisces: It’s okay to have bad days. Forgive yourself. Let yourself feel pain. Let yourself fail sometimes you do not always have to be the rock. It’s okay.

when remus saw sirius falling into the veil, he thought the same thing as harry : he’s going to come back.
but then the truth hit him, and the pain is more intense than he ever experienced during any transformation.
people around thought he was holding harry to stop him from running after sirius, but he just needed an anchor to reality, or he would have run after him too.
when harry got free of his hold, he thought “james, no !” before to remember that he was alone.
alone again, like sirius promised he’ll never be when he came back from azkaban.

anonymous asked:

What's this about Newt finding you and you playing with his hair? Care to share that story or no?

Ah hah, that story. Well. Um. Grindelwald left just enough automated charms and the like to keep me alive, so although things were never exactly peachy and there were varying amounts of pain and insanity at various points, I wasn’t actually starving to death or anything. Except that the charms started failing when he stopped coming back - I think that was when he was captured? I don’t know, I kinda lost track of time for a bit then. But it meant that by the time people found me - and no, I have no idea how that happened but Goldstein was there? And Newt? Something about one of Newt’s creatures being good at tracking things, I think? - anyway, by the time they found me I was pretty much running on magic alone to stop myself copping it and… not in the most lucid state of mind.

I believe my exact words when I saw Newt were “Fuck me, you’re pretty,” and, when I realised he had all this fluffy curly hair, “Imma touch it. Give.”

… in retrospect I’m actually really surprised that Newt let me. I have a horrible feeling that I tried to hold onto it while people were carrying me out of there and to the hospital, and I think I remember him untangling my fingers and holding my hand instead.

Which, now that I think about it, is really embarrassing but also ridiculously cute for him to do that. So. There’s that.

(oh god I’m in love with him he’s such an adorable dork)

18 things I learned in 18 years:

1. You will have your heartbroken multiple times. By your best friend, your parents, or the boy down the road. It will happen, but pain will turn into knowledge.

2. He doesn’t love you if he only calls you at 2am. Don’t answer.

3. Its okay to not be okay. As simple as that.

4. Its one thing to party, but its a whole other thing to hide your pain in alcohol. If you catch yourself drinking by yourself just to go to sleep, stop.

5. Friends come and go.

6. People will have different opinions on things, and it’s okay to listen to their views. But it’s not okay to let them tell you that you are wrong.

7. Never expect someone to put in the same amount of effort as you do. You will only be disappointed.

8. Always say “I love you” before hanging up the phone.

9. Grudges aren’t fun, let it go. Its okay to forgive.

10. Looks literally mean nothing.

11. BE GENTLE WITH YOURSELF

12. There’s so much more out there, do not settle.

13. Never let anyone tell you how to feel/think/act/look. You are you for a reason.

14. On the days that you can’t get out of bed, read a book and try tomorrow.

15. Its okay to take time for yourself.

16. Music helps everything hurt less.

17. Find the people who get excited about your birthday because it’s the day you we’re brought into this world and they couldn’t imagine theirs without you in it.

18. Love yourself. Trust yourself. Be yourself. And you are worth so much more than the number of likes on your selfies or the number on the scale.

MEME: NIGHTCALL STARTER/ONESHOT SENTENCES—

“I’ll stop if you tell me what I wanna know.”
“You’re in a good mood today.”
“You said you’d die for me. Now prove it.”
“Personally, I’m glad they’re dead.”
“I don’t want your money. I just want your pain.”
“Run on me again, and I’ll break the other one.”
“That pill was stronger than I thought.”
“Go on, then. Pull the trigger.”
“No one’s coming for you.”
“I’m calling the police.”
“Time to move on.”
“Admit it.”
“Should I pray?”
“Time never stands still.”
“How long have you been listening?”
“I don’t have anywhere else to go.”
“Got anything to eat?”
“No kids.”
“I’ll take care of this—you can go back.”
“Don’t pull any funny business with me.”
“Shit happens.”
“Pretending to be senile won’t help you here.”
“I want to see you beg.”

The reality is, you can’t stop the world from revolving just because you’re in pain.

You can’t ask for it to give you a time, a time to recover and to be healed. You can’t say to please pause for a while because you need time for yourself. You can’t make it understand your grief. You can’t explain that you need to stop existing for a while and wait for you to come back. The world doesn’t care and it will never be aware of the things that you’re going through. The world doesn’t care and it will never understand why it’s so difficult for you to wake up every morning. It doesn’t care if your insides are burning with so much pain as you go on everyday pretending to be normal. It doesn’t care how will you heal your broken heart.


We are living in a world where we need to take step one a time as the ticking of the clock strikes. It only cares on how you live and how you play your role in this life. The world will never teach you to stuck yourself where you’ve experienced a major crashed landing. It will teach you how to move forward as it revolves. It will teach you where is the right path as it continues to move. It will never allow you to stop living your life and stop existing. It will only teach you that life goes on no matter what happens just like how it keeps on revolving on its orbit. Life will never stop just because you’ve lost someone and just because your heart is broken. Life is worth living even if sometimes you can’t seem to move forward.

What is Taste in Men about?
Brian: It’s a very claustrophobic song… It’s about love that’s lost and that never returns. About the kind of pain that is with you from the moment that you wake up and until the moment that you go to sleep… if you can sleep. The kind of pain that makes you stop eating. Um…the pain… the kind of pain that is THERE, and that follows you everywhere. The character in the song is actually prepared to accept any ANY kind of relationship with this person that he or she has lost, just as long as they come back. On ANY terms whatsoever. Which is kind of an intense and extreme state of being to be in…

My mom, trying to understand my depression, kept asking me “what do you feel?” and it was so hard to give her an answer that made sense because maybe it’s not a feeling, but rather a lack of one. Any time I’ve been very ill, the only way I can describe it is just as going away for a little while. Like it’s too painful to be in the world, so you sort of just float away. But then your body is left here to fend for itself, and it’s like it doesn’t know how. No one tells it to eat or to breathe or to look both ways before it crosses the street. And the strangest part is, you never really feel the leaving; it’s not a decision, or a process, but suddenly you’re just empty, and your body is like this discarded shell. You never really got the chance to stop it. 

For some reason though, you always feel the coming back. It’s like this reanimation of sorts. All of a sudden there’s air in your lungs and you can see colors again. But the colors are so bright, you don’t know what to do. I want to write about this feeling forever because it’s captivating and striking and proof of some greater force conspiring in our favor. No words do it justice though; no metaphor can capture it. I wear glasses. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and when I open my eyes, everything is blurry- so blurry that I forget what it’s like to see. But then I reach over and put on my glasses and all the weird blurs of light are identifiable again. Or, you know on the medical shows? When a patient is technically dead for 5 minutes and all the doctors are performing CPR and shocking them and yelling “clear!” and suddenly the patient’s eyes fly open, never knowing they left, but grateful to be back? Maybe it’s like that. 

I woke up this morning at 7:14 am. I sat up, looked out the window, and I cried. A good cry though. Like overwhelming tears of joy because I slept through the whole night and I couldn’t remember the last time I did that. I can hear music again. I can taste strawberries. Words are in the front of my brain again. I’m not digging them out, or trying to figure out the right way to be. I just am. I am, I am, I am. Maybe that’s what Sylvia Plath meant. Maybe this doesn’t make any sense. I feel a little bit like a toddler, like I’m learning how to inhabit the world for the first time. Or maybe like a tourist- in a beautiful place that I just don’t understand the language of yet. I feel this hesitancy. Because I forgot what it feels like to have your eyes open, and I just don’t know how to take it all in. I keep staring out windows, at people, at trees, at everything I forgot how to see. I forgot what it’s like to be genuine, to enjoy a moment, to make it to Thursday and somehow still be happy that you’re alive. 

This is a quiet transformation, though. I want to tell everyone about it, but I just don’t know how to say, I’m back from a really long vacation. Maybe I’ll throw myself a welcome home party.

Imagine Hiro demanding Tadashi’s phone after he dies. 

He has Tadashi’s recordings on Baymax, but even then, that doesn’t seem like enough sometimes.

So, for months and months after, Hiro pays his now dead brothers phone bill so he can call and and get his brothers voicemail because the assurance and warmth of his voice being so close makes him feel like Tadashi is back.

He’ll leave a message once and while, hopeful that Tadashi would somehow come back and scold Hiro for leaving so many messages. 

Things like;

I miss you.

Why can’t you just come back?

Why’d you leave me…?

Why couldn’t I stop you…? Wasn’t I strong enough…?

He hold his phone so tightly that his knuckles will turn white and he’ll say one last thing;

I love you, Tadashi…. I never said it a lot because you were really a pain in my butt sometimes, Hiro would chuckle as tears fall from his eyes, but you were my big brother… And I love you…

     “That feeling…I finally get it now. I’ve been travelling around the world and I seem to recall these memories a lot. We were alone and starved of love. Kids that lived in a world full of hate. And from that point on, we went our separate ways…and fought. But time has passed and now I’m thinking… Could it be that…just like how the hope and pain from my father, mother, and my brother Itachi flowed into me… I’d understand your pain and hopes too, Naruto? You never abandoned me, no matter what. And you never gave up on me, coming closer when I pulled away. It wouldn’t have surprised me if you hated me, but you didn't…You kept insisting that we were friends. And even that, I nearly destroyed. You fought to stop me…to the point you lost an arm. All because you were my friend. You saved me.”

I was fifteen and trying to figure out how to stop crying in the bathroom stall during the winter carnival assembly. fifteen and a friend who I had never hurt, a friend I wasn’t even looking at, turn around and say to me “god will you stop staring at me?”

i was fifteen and all my nightmares were coming true when half my friends decided I was a fucking slut or maybe just crazy.

i was fifteen and there was panic clawing at my throat and there is no fucking way out when that happens.

even now, months later, im still trying to let the pain settle. still trying to figure out how to stop crying in the bathroom stall during the winter carnival assembly.

you know it all, you’re my best friend, the morning will come again

anonymous asked:

Do you think Sakura ever stopped liking Sasuke? She said at one point "used to love" referring to Sasuke. Do you think she ever loved Naruto in a romantic way?

Never. All she does, one way or the other, is to save Sasuke. His pain is a burden that weighs on her constantly. His unhappiness is hers. But just like a flower in the snow, she preserved with unwavering strength the hope for his well-being. And she succeeded in the end. 

Had Sasuke died or remained evil, she would have brought his sorrow to her grave. So no, a love like this could never come and go. She has never stopped loving him.

I shall jump to part II:

  • She became Tsunade’s apprentice so that, next time, she’d be better equipped at saving Sasuke, aiding Naruto’s promise of a lifetime.
  • While she was Tsunade’s apprentice, she gathered information on Orochimaru, once again, to plan Sasuke’s retrieval.
  • She weeps for him “silently and strongly”, “under the same sky”, while looking at his group photo.
  • She beats up Sai because of a trivial remark against Sasuke.
  • Her determination to defeat Sasori is fueled by her desire to find Orochimaru, hence Sasuke. Look at how fierce she is!
  • She bursts into hopeless tears when Karui asks what Sasuke means to her. 
  • She lies, badly, to distract everyone and take care of Sasuke herself, once and for all, because she loves him so much and can’t stand seeing how low he’s fallen. 
  • She refuses the advances of a kind young shinobi because she still thinks about Sasuke.
  • Whenever she sees Sasuke in part II, there’s a bewildered expression on her face, leading to those oh-so-loved eyesmex and sultry exchanges… “Sasuke-kun!” “Sakura…” like nobody’s watching.

two pages, two whole pages of eyes turning in slow motion, until she finally lays them upon her beloved Sasuke-kun, after all these years. 

And there’s much more but let’s keep our focus.


“Used to love”, you’re referring to Kakashi’s thoughts of chapter 675. She used the past tense in 693 but it’s clear she meant “I loved you through thick and thin no matter what you did, and I still do”.

In 675, Kakashi said about Sakura, “the Sasuke you liked”, because Sakura knew a different Sasuke from the ‘dark’ version he’d become, and she couldn’t let go of that old Sasuke. About her love, “it’s on a whole new level now”. She’s witnessed the extent of his demons, but instead of putting her off, she feels so much for him she won’t rest until he heals. If before hers was a crush, now it’s a deeper kind of love.

カカシ「(そしてサクラ…あの時とサスケに対する想いは違うだろう。
Kakashi: And Sakura…your feelings towards Sasuke compared to that time is different now, right?
同じ好きでもその想いは別のものだ。
Even though it’s the same love, those feelings are something else#.
命を狙われた相手を今だに想う…
You still love the enemy that tried to take away your life…
何があろうと好いていたサスケを切り捨てず、サスケを闇から救うのは自分の役目だと思っている 。
Not discarding the Sasuke you liked* no matter what, saving him from darkness is what you hold to be your duty.
お前はそういう優しい子だ)」
That’s the kind, gentle girl you are.

#別のものだ (“something else”) is used in a way to mean, “it’s on a whole  different level now” i.e. it’s a word used for emphasis. Even in English you can use the word “something else” to mean just that. Example sentence: Listening to a classical music CD is one thing, but attending a live orchestra is something else.

*The “liked” here should not be misconstrued to mean that she no longer loves him. To elaborate, Kakashi is saying that Sakura is not going to throw away the old Sasuke (in her heart) that she knew and loved, no matter what. i.e. like Naruto, she’s holding on to the older and sane Sasuke in order to save him from darkness.

(x)

I skipped ~30 crucial steps, but you get the idea of how much she feels his pain, and loves him now more than ever, because she can’t stand to see him suffer.


She never loved Naruto romantically. When they meet again after 2 years, she does find him attractive for an instant, but it’s to accentuate the comic relief as soon as she punches him.

They’re both attractive people, but attraction has a long way to go before becoming love. Had they been a little attracted to each other, it wouldn’t have been a problem, it’s natural. But they weren’t. This scene makes a point that, despite their growth in height and appearance, their dynamic didn’t change. They are true friends, true comrades, getting at times on each other’s nerves like brother and sister.

She came a long way from saying “what I dislike is Naruto” in her intro with Kakashi, to saving a dying Nardo CPR-style with the very last chakra she had left, or thanking him wholeheartedly when he saved Konoha from Pein. 

Imagine Sakura’s relief, when her dear comrade came back not only is safe, but the savior of everyone in the village. There’s not an ounce of romantic love here, only profound gratitude.

It’s so beautiful and meaningful how their bond has grown. This manga portrayed a vast range of loves and bonds; Naruto’s and Sakura’s is among the best developed, but it’s so reductive to assume all affections must lead to romance. Especially when the girl in question is that empathetic and kind with evevryone. Sasuke affects Sakura’s whole being in a way Naruto never did or could.

Whenever there’s the occasion to turn the feelings romantic, Sakura rejects Naruto, 

as he rejects her, 

because Naruto knows, 

better than most, 

just how much Sakura loves, 

and always will love, 

Sasuke.

I tried and tried with you.
Begged you to try and make this work.
You told me it just wasn’t working.
As you filled me with silence.
Going after other girls.
But still I tried.

Until I decided I was done trying.
I blocked you.
I stopped calling.
I dealt with the unbearable pain.
I realized things I had not before.
I started focusing on me.

That’s when you tried to come back.
Because I had never gone silent before.
And that was killing you.
You started texting and begging me.
And I didn’t say a word like you did to me.

I started going out on dates.
And that drove you crazy hearing those whispers from people.
You begged me to take you back but I was done.
Because when you move on, that’s when they decide they want you the most.
