So, I definitely got more out of my second read through of Of Bright Stars and Burning Hearts.
One of the things that struck me is how Viktor thinks about Yuuri, and when he does it. We know that at the end of the chapter, at the age of 23, Viktor is ‘completely in love with Yuuri’. But the bit before he says this is very telling: 'Viktor had known for a long time where the path he was walking would eventually lead’. See that? He had known for a long time. Perhaps he didn’t think it in the words he uses at the end of the chapter, but he knew he was falling all the same. And when I read through the chapter I just saw so much evidence of Viktor falling. He’s been falling slowly for a long time, and we can see it happen through the chapter.
Lance has always felt like an outcast in the small town of Wall, always bullied for his strange marks and long ears that he tried so hard to hide in order to fit in. The only one who doesn’t seemed dazed by his appearance is his adoptive brother, Shiro, the one who found him near the wall. No matter how many times he had tried to ask him about where he came from Shiro never gave any answers. Lance only knew that he came from across the wall.
Is not until a star falls to the other side and the fate of his heart depends on finding it that he decides to go against the rules and cross the wall, trying not only to get the pretty jewel to his true love, Nyma, as a proposition of marriage, but also trying to find his lost sister, the one Shiro met so many years ago.

When this world is no more, the moon is all we’ll see. I’ll ask you to fly away with me. Until the stars all fall down, they empty from the sky. But I don’t mind, if you’re with me, then everything’s alright.
What do you do when you’re too shy to ask out the cute guy in your neighbourhood? Get his attention by running literal rings around him every day while he’s on his morning jog! He’ll be so impressed that he’s bound to fall in love with you immediately! There’s no way this plan can fail!
they get wine drunk and kiss each other’s rosy cheeks and laugh and slow dance around their kitchen when the buzz of the alcohol starts to fade and go out on their balcony and watch the night sky until it feels like the stars are in their veins and then they fall asleep on top of the covers holding each other close
Imagine sharing bunks with Josh. Since he likes to cuddle, you’d always sleep with your bodies in a tangled knot. In the morning, he wouldn’t let you leave the bed, but instead holds you tight against his. At night you two would have endless deep conversations until one of you falls asleep. Imagine gazing stars from the see through wall of his tiny bunk. Most of the time you’d be pressed against the thin glass, cluelessly creating a small crack. As soon as you add more pressure against it, the crack tears open even wider to the point where your body just slips out of Josh’s grip and falls right out of the enormous gap, straight onto the busy highway. The man sitting behind the steeling wheel of the truck coming your way, didn’t see you and unintentionally drives his 80,000 pounds heavy vehicle over your body crushing every bone in a snap. There you lay, with blood spread around what’s left of your body. Parts that are missing, have possibly stuck to the wheels of the truck.

Okay, so I felt like the instructions on the first post weren’t very accessible, it was long and kind of difficult to read. So here’s a more simplified version!
What you need:
- A wooden skewer chopstick or lollipop stick
-A clothespin or chip clip
-1 cup of water, charged under the moon or with cosmic energy
-3 cups of sugar
-A tall narrow glass or jar
-Flavoring (I chose lemon and orange extracts, but you can use any extract, fruit juice or even kool-aid)
-Food coloring (I chose yellow like the Star Fragments)
How to make the candy:
Lightly wet your skewer, and roll it in sugar (maybe you can use flavored sugar for this part), set aside to dry.
Pour your water into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Slowly add the sugar, stirring constantly, until it stops dissolving. As you stir, visualize a falling star, its energy and light falling right into your pot. Let it continue to boil for a few minutes.
Remove the pot from heat, and add your flavoring and food coloring. How much food coloring you add will determine how light the candy color is. Making the water super dark with color will make a richer color of the crystals. Let cool for 15 - 20 minutes.
When it’s cooled, pour the sugar water into the jar, filling it up most of the way. Using the clip, submerge the skewer, sugared side down into the jar, making sure it doesn’t touch the sides and hangs about 1 inch above the bottom.
Cover the jar with plastic wrap or a sandwich bag to keep dust out, and place it somewhere it won’t be disturbed. You should see crystals forming within a few hours.
Check on your candy over the next 3-7 days, charging the jar as it grows, until it’s as big as you like. Be careful not to let it get stuck to the sides of your jar! When ready, remove the stick and let dry on a paper towel.
You are exactly where you need to be. You’ll stay there until the day my lungs give up and my heart stops beating and you’ll stay there until all the stars fall on the ground. And you’ll stay there until the universe collapses. You’ll stay there as long as I stay here on this earth. You’ll stay in my heart.
tattoos of the constellations that mean the most to you. lying on your back in the grass, looking up and counting the stars, losing track and starting over until falling asleep. zooming into the andromeda galaxy until it looks like static. connecting the freckles and moles on someone’s body to create your own constellations. doing the thing that scares you the most. watching the x-files in the middle of the night, again.
