This time zone difference has me so confused lol but I guess that’s the good thing because then he can celebrate it again “tomorrow” with us fans on the other side of the world right? ^^ Anyways Happy Birthday to the world’s cutest, fluffiest, and kindest rapper £2 Love you to the moon & back 😘 😘 Please stay healthy & always be happy!! Let’s celebrate again next year!! ♥♥♥
I know it feels right now like we failed. But look at what we did accomplish:
We flipped multiple Republican senators.
We delayed the vote.
We emboldened Democrats to speak out against DeVos, loudly, late into the night.
We organized. We were seen.
We made it harder than they ever expected.
We were a thorn in their side.
Republicans met the Obama administration with obstruction and loud disagreement at every turn. Our job, now, is to return that energy, and then some. We don’t have the votes, always, but we do have the people power. We can delay, pressure, advocate, organize, and inform. What we can’t do is give up.
We can allay the damage this administration does. We can foment discord between Trump and his aides and the Republican party. We can give all of them hell. Unceasing, well-informed, devoted, righteous hell. I know we can do that because we already did here.
You all did a good job. You did not fail. The Senate failed you. But we won’t go away. We’ll keep being heard. Sometimes we’ll win. Sometimes we’ll throw up as many roadblocks and delays as possible and unrelentingly get in their faces. That matters too.
Sirius: I used to tell stories to Regulus about the moon, how it was the light in the darkness, how even on the worst days it would be there to save us, now I just–
James: He has done this before Pads. He is strong, you know he is strong.
Lily: Maybe you shouldn’t Sirius, maybe it is best if you look after Harry tonight.
Sirius:No. This is my fault, I’m not running away from it.
James: This is not your fault.
Sirius: You don’t understand! He begged, he fucking begged me to stay home and I just couldn’t listen to him.
Lily: You wanted to protect Harry–
Sirius: *barely speaking* At the cost of leaving him alone? Again?
James: Your choice is not a mistake Pads, no one could have known what was going to happen.
Sirius: But I– I wasn’t careful, I was hearing you and I was– I wasn’t careful enough. *mumbling* All he asked was for me to stay behind, he begged and I–
Lily:Enough, Sirius! You are not making it easier for any of us.
Lily:What? Self loathing is not going to help Remus, is it? Haven’t we hated ourselves for years when Harry was trapped in that hell hole? Or when Sirius was having nightmare after nightmare in Azkaban?
Sirius: *shivers at the mention of Azkaban*
Lily: Did it help other than making us feel worse than we already did James?
Sirius: I just can’t bear the fact that I left him and that’s all I seem to do Lils. Leave.
Lily: He is not alone as he was before Sirius. I promise he is not. He has McGonagall, he has Molly, he has the Order with him.
Sirius: Will they be with him when he transforms? Will they know how to ease his pain?
James:*hopefully* They will try their best and the potion helps him a lot.
Sirius:*angrily* That potion only protects the people around! Also he doesn’t have the potion right now, not tonight.
Lily: I don’t want you to watch this.
Sirius: I need to be here for him.
James: At the expense of hurting yourself?
Sirius: My pain compared to his pain is nothing. Stars to his moon, I can’t run away.
Lily: Sometimes, you have to run away. I saw this before, I know what it’s like, I can’t bear seeing you both in so much pain.
James: Let us watch over him this time.
Sirius: I said no!
James: Okay mate, however you want.
Lily: Just know that we are here for you.
Sirius: I just wish we were there for him.
*The moonlight hits Remus’ scarred skin and he starts screaming with agony as Sirius turns away unintentionally*
Sirius:*to himself* This is all my fault. This is all my fault.
