these all burn so bright with passion and longing

*rolls around quietly on Isabela, Merrill and Anders feelings*

I just

Merrill is so good and she has such a good heart?

And she wants so desperately to save this one relic of what the Dalish used to be

And she’s willing to take her own risks and pay her own prices and she knows damn well what she’s gotten herself into

And she tries so hard and just can’t predict how the others will react. 

And she makes mistakes because of it and she still believes in second chances and in people and she’s so kind to Anders and Fenris even when they’re awful to her, because she believes in them and she knows what they’ve come through.

And so much has gone wrong for her but she still sees the beauty in everything.

And Isabela! Isabela who believes in freedom and has been through so much. Isabela who closes off, trying to protect herself, because she’s seen what happens when you don’t

Isabela who knows who she is and who embraces her mistakes and who fucks and drinks and fights and will not fucking be shamed for any of it (and shouldn’t be) and who believes in finding your own way and making your own decisions

(And who is goddamn hilarious too like oh my god, I have so much fun with her and my purple Hawkes. Like I don’t rival b/c it comes off as like super judgey of her choices to me and I am not about that but there are some definite lines with really unclear summaries that have caused reloads and while it can’t be in my canon b/c it gets like ridic amounts of rivalry I can’t stop fucking laughing at “I always knew you had a heart of gold. We just have to dig it out and sell it.” Because I mean, she does have a heart of gold, she really does, she is good and she is kind and she’s had to do some terrible things to survive for which I do not judge her but she hasn’t let any of it steal away that good heart)

And she’s slow to love and slow to trust for good reasons but goddammit if you stand by her she will stand the fuck by you in the end. She can’t help it, not even when she knows this book in her arms could buy her freedom

(And her interactions with Merrill oh my god. Literally the only Companion I can think of who I have never once wanted to smack upside the head over at least one potential line about Merrill and just. ‘Because you have a good heart and you deserve better’ and she treats Merrill like a fucking adult, because she is, and she’s the only fucking one to walk up Sundermount with you and Merrill in the end and ask “Are you sure?” but support her no matter what.)

And Anders. Anders. I mean we all know how much I love him but I just.

Anders the runaway, Anders the rebel, Anders the symbol of revolution. 

Anders in Awakening the ‘not nearly as selfish as he likes to think’, seizing his chance at freedom again and again but when you let him go he comes back to fight darkspawn with you, no matter the risk. Who speaks up if you decide to burn Amaranthine, who plays at cowardice and self preservation and hides his pain with bad jokes and who knows how fragile his position is and how few people get to run away as many times as he has, who knows from a fucking year in that cell with no one but a cat what they have already done to him. 

Who banters with Justice about the impossibility of more rebellion than this. Who comes to wonder if he really can do something, who sees that the Templars will never stop coming after him, who is so fucking angry at what has been done, to him and to Circle mages everywhere.

Anders who sets up a Clinic in Darktown, who loses the man he thought he could run away with, who is bright and bitter and jagged at the edges, who is mentally ill in unpretty ways and who I don’t always agree with but goddammit who burns with passion and belief and love brighter than any sun and who does not has not will never submit.

And I love them all so fucking much.

You know why I love Kataang so much?

It’s not fireworks, or a passionate flame.

Because while fireworks are loud and colorful, they disintegrate into the sky only seconds later, and while passionate flames are bright and strong, they burn everything around them until they burn themselves up, too.

But Kataang is like the fire in a fireplace, burning steadily and slowly. It’s warm, it’s gentle, and it’s comforting, but it’s a flame all the same.

And I think that’s the best kind of relationship.

anonymous asked:

  • i almost do - im gonna be honest i rarely listen to this song but only because i feel like crying every. damn. time and honestly i’m not emotionally strong to handle this beauty. “i bet it never ever occured to you that i can’t say hello to you and risk another goodbye” :-((( i’m so sad just thinking about it
  • we are never ever getting back together - i don’t think i’ll get over how amazing this song is??? perfect for after i almost do because you just want to GET UP AND DANCE and be ANGRY and happy at the same time????????? this song is such a JAM you can dance your ass off to it and it helps you in times of anger what a wonderful piece of pop music
  • stay stay stay - the fucking happiest song on the face of the earth????? the cute music??? taylor sounds like she’s smiling the entire song??? the little laugh???? i’m dead??? it’s so HAPPY the relationship she describes is so HAPPY this song makes me wanna smile twenty four seven it gets me so excited to be in love wow
  • the last time - this song is so heartwrenching it literally tugs at your heartstrings the harmonizing with gary the lyrics the music it’s almost haunting “and right before your eyes i’m breaking” and the BRIDGE you can practically hear the pleading in taylor’s voice you can hear her breaking im gonna cry just THINKING about it i love this song so much everyone go listen to it RIGHT NOW
  • holy ground - fuck this song is so good. it’s so so so sos os good. so happy. so reminiscent. it just gives off this vibe of dancing down the street with not a care in the world. it makes me want to move to a big city and accomplish everything i want in the world. it makes me want to fall in love and fall out of love “spinning like a girl in a brand new dress” yes pls “we blocked the noise with the sound of i need you” and taylor’s so content about the end of the relationship it’s accepting it’s looking back on this great relationship and it’s not sad but happy that it happened and that’s just such an important point to be at post breakup and i love it also the DRUMS
  • sad beautiful tragic - THIS SONG. THIS FUCKING SONG. I CRY EVERY SINGLE TIME THIS ISN’T EVEN A LIE. “LONG HANDWRITTEN NOTE DEEP IN YOUR POCKET, WORDS HOW LITTLE THEY MEAN, WHEN YOU’RE A LITTLE TOO LATE” “GOOD GIRLS, HOPEFUL THEY’LL BE, AND LONG THEY WILL WAIT” “IN DREAMS, I MEET YOU IN WARM CONVERSATION, WE BOTH WAKE, IN LONELY BEDS, DIFFERENT CITIES, AND TIME IS TAKING ITS SWEET TIME ERASING YOU, AND YOU’VE GOT YOUR DEMONS AND DARLING THEY ALL LOOK LIKE ME” BEAUTIFUL??? ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL TAYLOR HOW??? HOW DO YOU MAKE ME CRY LIKE THIS??? “DISTANCE, TIMING, BREAKDOWN, FIGHTING, SILENCE, THE TRAIN RUNS OFF ITS TRACKS, KISS ME TRY TO FIX IT, WOULD YOU JUST TRY TO LISTEN, HANG UP, GIVE UP, BUT FOR THE LIFE OF US WE CAN’T GET BACK,” im done i can’t anymore
  • the lucky one - really the only song taylor’s written about fame and it’s written BEAUTIFULLY i love the vibe it gives off like she’s a hollywood starlet the music is sooo nice and the words just flow together i honestly don’t even know how to explain it you just have to listen to it it’s amazing
  • everything has changed - this song is so SWEET it makes me want to fall in love so bad i wanna feel all of this how can you not after this song i love how it’s really only guitar at first i love how ed’s in it and how it sounds when they sing honestly their voices go together SO WELL man i love this song
  • starlight - I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH. I LOVE THE VIBE AND HOW ITS LIKE SET IN THE 40S AND THE PICTURE IT PAINTS. AND THE RHYTHM. “HE SAID LOOK AT YOU, WORRYING SO MUCH ABOUT, THINGS YOU CAN’T CHANGE. YOU’LL SPEND YOUR WHOLE LIFE SINGING THE BLUES IF YOU KEEP THINKING THAT WAY.” “DON’T YOU SEE THE STARLIGHT, STARLIGHT? DON’T YOU DREAM IMPOSSIBLE THINGS?” I LOVE THIS SONG
  • begin again - what do i even say honestly…. the music and everything is so simple but not the words and not the message and it’s SUCH an important message because the song showcases how broken taylor was after all the relationships described through this album, these crazy, turbulent loves and begin again shows like a new beginning a wonderful one filled with hope and happiness and you can hear that in her voice and when she sings “i’ve been spending the last eight months thinking all love ever does is break, and burn, and end” i cry a little ngl wow what a strong ending to the album

anyway this album is literally better than anything ever in the world

It had been sitting on your nightstand for the last three weeks…staring at you, taunting you. Part of you really just wanted to storm over to the damn thing and throw it out the window as far as you could, but the more sensible side of you knew how pointless that would be. It may not hold the same meaning that it had a few weeks prior, but it still had meaning. Three weeks ago, you had experienced one of the most heartbreaking things you’d ever come to face in your time on this earth. You weren’t trying to be dramatic, everybody went through breakups, but this breakup had been soul crushing.

When you intertwine your life so intricately with somebody else’s – only to have it ripped apart – you are left with pieces of yourself missing. You had lost parts of yourself, and in turn you had left with pieces of Yoongi as well. The small box was only one of them. Looking out your window you tried to calm down your aching heart by admiring the expanse of city lights that your upper floor apartment allowed you to see every night. It was hard to believe the days were dwindling down on you and soon enough you would be looking at a different site, thousands of miles away from this place; it was bittersweet.

Sunday Morning Olicity Musings

As I sit here this morning enjoying my coffee, my mind is wondering over this week in Oliver and Felicity land. 

It’s been no secret that the last two episodes of Arrow were a bit ‘eh’ to me. I was never a Sara fan so I’m a bit detached from this season so far. That’s not to say I don’t respect the fans that were…and deserved to mourn her. I’ve lost a few beloved characters over the past year, so I can relate. 

*Spoilers*

We all have a passion we want to pursue. This fire which we all want to burn so bright even in the darkest times.

And I think that is what’s missing in me. I don’t have that fire anymore, it may ignite sometimes but it doesn’t last long enough.
