Kiss me baby. Do not let our eyes touch. Just kiss me, because if I look at you, I’ll fall ever so deeply in love. So touch me, caress me, kiss me with all that you have. But please, in the middle of it all, don’t look at me. Don’t hold my face close to yours and look me in the eyes. As I’ve been trying so hard not to fall in love with you, and if I do.. l might not make it out alive.

“So what are you gonna say at my funeral, now that you’ve killed me? Here lies the body of the love of my life, whose heart I broke without a gun to my head. Here lies the mother of my children, both living and dead. Rest in peace, my true love, who I took for granted. Most bomb p*ssy who, because of me, sleep evaded. Her god listening. Her heaven will be a love without betrayal. Ashes to ashes, dust to side chicks.”

- Warsan Shire

When some lady tells you “she won’t be coming back because of your actions today”

Rereading a bit of the Bleach manga looking to see if canon answers a question of mine, and I run into this quote of Chad’s that I had completely forgotten about.

“It’s alright, Orihime. Uryuu is… it might be better if he didn’t come. You know, ‘cause out of all of us… he’s the most complicated. And complicated things are usually fragile. That’s just how it is. He’s probably… the most fragile out of us all.” (Bleach ch69, when they’re gathering. This is from the MangaTrader’s version, because my physical copies of the manga are. Somewhere. In boxes. Because I don’t have shelf space for even 1/10th of my book collection so it’s all still boxed up and stacked higher than my head.)

I just. That quote says so much about how I’ve been writing Uryuu, and I didn’t even remember it existed.

Friends: Why do you keep watching shows that only make you miserable?

Me:

Well very often I guess you do find it funny in the most serious situations, you know? I don’t think there’s any situation that mankind has ever been in where there haven’t been jokes. Do you know what I mean? Like people telling jokes in order to stay alive, you know? Um… and it’s important. It-it genuinely is important. Don’t tell me I’m lying. You know it’s true! Um, there’s nothing that we won’t try and find humour in because it’s liberating and because it makes you feel less scared in that moment.
