we're all just songs in the end

“We’re all just songs in the end. If we are lucky.”

I’ve been thinking a lot about this quote and it just kind of struck me, properly and truly struck me. So many of these characters will become songs. The things they did, the battles they all fought will forever be immortalised. Daenerys, Jon, Jaime, Brienne, Arya, Sansa, Tyrion, Cersei, Asha, Stannis and so many more will all be made into songs and remembered. GRRM’s story almost acts as the prequel to the songs. The origin stories even. This series is the humanity behind the songs. It’s what we get when we strip away the fancy words and look to the bone of the tales.

Characters like Sansa or Bran and Arya, they won’t just fade into obscurity or become another name in the family line. They’ll be remembered. Already we’re seeing songs about them creeping in. There are tales about the huge pack of wolves, led by Nymeria, her own. There are songs about how Sansa turned into a wolf and killed the king and flew out of Kingslanding. 

I know it seems hard to associate songs with the abuse and pain all these characters faced but that is exactly the point! Time and history will glorify them, forgetting all the hurt they once endured. The songs won’t remember how Jon struggled with his identity and not belonging but rather on the man who rose from the dead and helped to defeat the Others. 

It won’t see Bran the Broken boy or Brienne as someone to be mocked. It will remember that Bran became a godlike figure and ruled over Winterfell for centuries onwards. It will remember Brienne as one of the greatest knights to exist, perhaps it will even forget the reason behind her title, the Beauty. 

It won’t think to remember how Daenerys was abused by her own brother and was desperate for a home but rather the woman who did what no other person was able to do, bring dragons back. It’ll focus on how she broke the chains of slavery despite her lineage and past suggesting otherwise. It will remember her as the most beautiful woman and Aegon the Conqueror himself. 

It won’t see Arya, a girl forced to give up her identity, plagued by her own fears and insecurity but rather a girl who led a whole army of wolves and avenged her family. It’ll see a twelve-year-old who conquered the world.

Sansa, the girl who was forced to watch her father die and was forced into marriages, abused, sexually assaulted, she won’t be that anymore. She’ll be the girl who slayed a giant. The girl who escaped and killed a king and then helped to rebuild Winterfell and perhaps, even became a Queen. She’ll be a leader and a bringer of peace and a great lady in a song.

Despite what Sansa may think, what we all may think.The songs do exist, they just have to be earned. All the songs are based on somethings. They have to be and all these characters that we’ve just seen develop and grow are what the songs in the future will be based off. They’re the human within the song. The heart beneath the happy veneer. 

anonymous asked:

It's crazy how the song reversed sounds like it has an oriental origin, like the phonology and melody kind of make it sound Arabic or Turkish.. And then the song is about being misunderstood.. Like reversing the song itself is kind of like a metaphor about cultural clashes and misunderstandings, when at the end of the day, we're all just the same more or less..

HOLY SHIT! I GOT GOOSEBUMPS. YOUR INTERPRETATION IS BRILLIANT.

An explanation of the fandoms by my idiot self
  • Yuri on Ice: We love all your memes, we love all the ships, we love kubo, we love season 2 already, screaming it's canon, can you hear our heart beat?!, crying it's canon, we love everything because we are precious cinnamon roll people.
  • Killing Stalking: Your memes are hit or miss with us, we are just innocent beacons of sin, why Sangwoo?, we're all Yoonbums here, yes daddy?, we either hate your ship or love it, strumming my pain with his fingers, I've never listened that song till now, we have no grey areas, there's no way this will end how any of us wants it to, we're kinda emo but also pretty sweet.
  • Mystic Messenger: We're so edgy, who needs friends?, oh daddy is textin, I love everyone but also I don't, invite us out so we can decline, we need more memes guys, I secretly enjoy Killing Stalking but don't tell the Yuri on Ice fandom.
  • Haikyu!: we are the moms and dads of all fandoms, we are the true beginning, what's free?, fuck swimming we hit balls here, sunshine children and angsty parents, our show is just 1 big meme, classic cinnamon roll, we will accept any ship just please make it canon, we have some beautiful fanfics, season 4?

1991 stanfou hcs

• They playing airplane a lot, (I know planes are not yet exist in canon era, they can pretend to be like bird or something) usually end in lefou try to slide down, going for a kiss, sometime successful but half the time they just knock their head together.

• Stanley is aware of this. When it happen he would either rise up his head and smooch Lefou or raise his legs and make the kiss impossible, much to Lefou’s annoyance and his own amusement.

Lefou: Here hold this.

Stanley: K

Lefou: *Jumps in Stan’s laps like a cat*

• Lefou ain’t having none of that ‘I wanna smooch you today but I can’t reach your face’ bs, he basically climb up Stanley’s shirt at anytime he feels like kissing.

• Also he won’t come down after that but spend the next hour on his friend’s shoulder while the other just going on about his business. It was weird but, to be fair, they’re doing stupid stuff all the time anyway. (Stanley’s excuse for this is just ‘He likes to be tall’)

• Lefou never almost never get drunk but get sugarhigh quite easy and always feel terrible afteward.

• So stanley has to deal with this midget running around his house, suggest weird subjects to talk about and laughing at everything, then half an hour later complains about tummy ache, demanding his affection. (which he obliged)

• Stanley are out of town a bit more after the castle incident. [ Never for long, because he miss certain somebody ;) ] He usually going to these royal ball and parties in another land.

[ Refer to Cinderella II, how Stanley keep getting himself invited, or even got into those parties at all? nobody knowsss ]

• Lefou rarely go with him, but Stanley would always bring back sweets and local food from the place as a souvenir, sometimes he told his friend stories he had heard while traveling. (Few of them involved fairies and magic, Lefou really wants to be skeptical, but he got beaten up by bunch of living furniture once so..)

• Cue either Lefou waking up from lonely slumber to be greet with breakfast in bed and Stanley by his side, good morning kiss on the forehead.

• OR Stanley came back home just as Lefou about to go to bed. Follow by necessary midnight snacks together and talking til 3 am with Lefou curled up in his friend’s lap.

• The ‘I love you’s and make outs are rare unless they’re drunk.

• But they’re almost always in cuddly mood.

• They absolutely LOVED to gossip and talk smack, but will also teases and make fun out of each other too, all the time. Those are about things that are harmless enough and they would either laugh it off or trying to one-up the other.

• If the joke gone too far, for Lefou he won’t say anything but give a nervous chuckling and tries to not think about it too much

• If Stanley realize the mistake he practically apologize all day, topped it up with ‘im sorry’ cake and red wine then slapped in a short lecturing to always call him out when the joke’s becoming shitty.

• It take way less time when Stanley’s the one who got hurt, as most of the time he immediately goes ‘wtf???’ Lefou will shut up, follow with I’m sorry’s and a round of beer, easy as that and they’re cool again.

• When they feel especially outgoing, their dates are all about camp fire in the wood, making up songs, swim in river and catching fish, then end the day with a night walk to the highest hill to stargazing.

• But if not it’s just them eating breakfast leftovers and drinking contest until they ended up with sloppy make out.

Beatles: First Radio Interview, 10/28/1962
  • MONTY: It's a very great pleasure for us this evening to say hello to an up-and-coming Merseyside group, The Beatles. I know their names, and I'm going to try and put faces to them. Now, you're John Lennon, aren't you?"
  • JOHN: "Yes, that's right."
  • MONTY: "What do you do in the group, John?"
  • JOHN: "I play harmonica, rhythm guitar, and vocal. That's what they call it."
  • MONTY: "Then, there's Paul McCartney. That's you?"
  • PAUL: "Yeah, that's me. Yeah."
  • MONTY: "And what do you do?"
  • PAUL: "Play bass guitar and uhh, sing? ...I think! That's what they say."
  • MONTY: "That's quite apart from being vocal?"
  • PAUL: "Well... yes, yes."
  • MONTY: "Then there's George Harrison."
  • GEORGE: "How d'you do."
  • MONTY: "How d'you do. What's your job?"
  • GEORGE: "Uhh, lead guitar and sort of singing."
  • MONTY: "By playing lead guitar does that mean that you're sort of leader of the group or are you...?"
  • GEORGE: "No, no. Just... Well you see, the other guitar is the rhythm. Ching, ching, ching, you see."
  • PAUL: "He's solo guitar, you see. John is in fact the leader of the group."
  • MONTY: "And over in the background, here, and also in the background of the group making alot of noise is Ringo Starr."
  • RINGO: "Hello."
  • MONTY: "You're new to the group, aren't you Ringo?"
  • RINGO: "Yes, umm, nine weeks now."
  • MONTY: "Were you in on the act when the recording was made of 'Love Me Do'?"
  • RINGO: "Yes, I'm on the record. I'm on the disc."
  • (the group giggles)
  • RINGO: (comic voice) "It's down on record, you know?"
  • MONTY: "Now, umm..."
  • RINGO: "I'm the drummer!"
  • (laughter)
  • MONTY: "What's that offensive weapon you've got there? Those are your drumsticks?"
  • RINGO: "Well, it's umm... just a pair of sticks I found. I just bought 'em, you know, 'cuz we're going away."
  • MONTY: "When you say you're going away, that leads us on to another question now. Where are you going?"
  • RINGO: "Germany. Hamburg. For two weeks."
  • MONTY: "You have standing and great engagements over there, haven't you?"
  • RINGO: "Well, the boys have been there quite alot, you know. And I've been there with other groups, but this is the first time I've been there with the Beatles."
  • MONTY: "Paul, tell us. How do you get in on the act in Germany?"
  • PAUL: "Well, it was all through an old agent."
  • (laughter)
  • PAUL: (chuckles) "We first went there for a fella who used to manage us, and Mr. Allan Williams of the Jacaranda Club in Liverpool. And he found the engagements so we sort of went there, and then went under our own..."
  • JOHN: "Steam."
  • PAUL: "Steam... (laughs)
  • JOHN: "...as they say."
  • PAUL: "As they say, afterwards, you know. And we've just been going backwards and forwards and backwards and forwards."
  • MONTY: (surprised) "You're not busy at all?"
  • PAUL: (jokingly) "Well yes, actually. Yes. It's me left leg. You know. The war."
  • (laughter)
  • MONTY: "George, were you brought up in Liverpool?"
  • GEORGE: "Yes. So far, yes."
  • MONTY: "Whereabouts?"
  • GEORGE: "Well, born in Wavertree, and bred in Wavertree and Speke -- where the airplanes are, you know."
  • MONTY: "Are you all 'Liverpool types,' then?"
  • RINGO: "Yes."
  • JOHN: "Uhh... types, yes."
  • PAUL: "Oh yeah."
  • RINGO: "Liverpool-typed Paul, there."
  • MONTY: "Now, I'm told that you were actually in the same form as young Ron Wycherley..."
  • RINGO: "Ronald. Yes."
  • MONTY: "...now Billy Fury."
  • RINGO: "In Saint Sylus."
  • MONTY: "In which?"
  • RINGO: "Saint Sylus."
  • JOHN: "Really?"
  • RINGO: "It wasn't Dingle Vale like you said in the Musical Express."
  • PAUL: "No, that was wrong. Saint Sylus school."
  • MONTY: "Now I'd like to introduce a young disc jockey. His name is Malcolm Threadgill, he's 16-years old, and I'm sure he'd like to ask some questions from the teenage point of view."
  • MALCOLM: "I understand you've made other recordings before on a German label."
  • PAUL: "Yeah."
  • MALCOLM: "What ones were they?"
  • PAUL: "Well, we didn't make... First of all we made a recording with a fella called Tony Sheridan. We were working in a club called 'The Top Ten Club' in Hamburg. And we made a recording with him called, 'My Bonnie,' which got to number five in the German Hit Parade."
  • JOHN: "Ach tung!"
  • PAUL: (giggles) "But it didn't do a thing over here, you know. It wasn't a very good record, but the Germans must've liked it a bit. And we did an instrumental which was released in France on an EP of Tony Sheridan's, which George and John wrote themselves. That wasn't released here. It got one copy. That's all, you know. It didn't do anything."
  • MALCOLM: "You composed 'P.S. I Love You' and 'Love Me Do' yourself, didn't you? Who does the composing between you?"
  • PAUL: "Well, it's John and I. We write the songs between us. It's, you know... We've sort of signed contracts and things to say, that now if we..."
  • JOHN: "It's equal shares."
  • PAUL: "Yeah, equal shares and royalties and things, so that really we just both write most of the stuff. George did write this instrumental, as we say. But mainly it's John and I. We've written over about a hundred songs but we don't use half of them, you know. We just happened to sort of rearrange 'Love Me Do' and played it to the recording people, and 'P.S. I Love You,' and uhh, they seemed to quite like it. So that's what we recorded."
  • MALCOLM: "Is there anymore of your own compositions you intend to record?"
  • JOHN: "Well, we did record another song of our own when we were down there, but it wasn't finished enough. So, you know, we'll take it back next time and see how they like it then."
  • (long pause)
  • JOHN: (jokingly) "Well... that's all from MY end!"
  • (laughter)
  • MONTY: "I would like to just ask you-- and we're recording this at Hume Hall, Port Sunlight-- Did any of you come over to this side before you became famous, as it were? Do you know this district?"
  • PAUL: "Well, we played here, uhh... I don't know what you mean by famous, you know.
  • (laughter)
  • PAUL: "If being famous is being in the Hit Parade, we've been over here-- we were here about two months ago. Been here twice, haven't we?"
  • JOHN: "I've got relations here. Rock Ferry."
  • MONTY: "Have you?"
  • JOHN: "Yes. Oh, all sides of the water, you know."
  • PAUL: "Yeah, I've got a relation in Claughton Village-- Upton Road."
  • RINGO: (jokingly) "I've got a friend in Birkenhead!"
  • (laughter)
  • MONTY: "I wish I had."
  • GEORGE: (jokingly) "I know a man in Chester!"
  • (laughter)
  • MONTY: "Now, that's a very dangerous thing to say. There's a mental home there, mate. Peter Smethurst is here as well, and he looks like he is bursting with a question."
  • PETER: "There is just one question I'd like to ask. I'm sure it's the question everyone's asking. I'd like your impressions on your first appearance on television."
  • PAUL: "Well, strangely enough, we thought we were gonna be dead nervous. And everyone said, 'You suddenly, when you see the cameras, you realize that there are two million people watching,' because there were two million watching that 'People And Places' that we did... we heard afterwards. But, strangely enough, it didn't come to us. We didn't think at all about that. And it was much easier doing the television than it was doing the (live musical performance) radio. It's still nerve-wracking, but it was a bit easier than doing radio because there was a full audience for the radio broadcast."
  • MONTY: "Do you find it nerve-wracking doing this now?"
  • (laughter)
  • PAUL: (jokingly) "Yeah, yeah."
  • MONTY: "Over at Cleaver Hospital, a certain record on Parlophone-- the top side has been requested. So perhaps the Beatles themselves would like to tell them what it's going to be."
  • PAUL: "Yeah. Well, I think it's gonna be 'Love Me Do.'"
  • JOHN: "Parlophone R4949."
  • (laughter)
  • PAUL: "'Love Me Do.'"
  • MONTY: "And I'm sure, for them, the answer is P.S. I love you!"
  • PAUL: "Yeah."

anonymous asked:

IMO, "Pretending" should have been a Faberry duet, and not a Finchel one. The lyrics describes Faberry's relationship more than it does Finchel. Especially the parts, "Will we ever say the words we're feeling? Reach down underneath and tear down all the walls. Will we ever have our happy ending? Or will we forever only be pretending?" What part of that does not scream FABERRY? Thus making my headcanon that it was, in truth, Quinn who wrote the lyrics and that Finn just stole it from her.

YES Pretending should have been a Faberry duet, and I’m convinced that Finn stole it, I mean the dude couldn’t even combine a sentence correctly when he tried to talk how could he be able to write an entire song by himself with music and everything that a song needs, on the other part Quinn can play and read music, we have the proove in the episode “Original Song”.Now in my headcanon Quinn wrote the song and either gave it to Finn to make Rachel happy, because we know that Quinn would do anything for Rachel, or Finn stole the song claiming it as his own knowing that Quinn would never tell for fear of rejection from Rachel who would think that is just a move for Quinn to have Finn back…Also why would Finn write 

Keeping secrets safe, every move we make
Seems like no one’s letting go And it’s such a shame ‘cause if you feel the same
How am I supposed to know?

We know, together with all Lima, Ohio that Rachel is in love with Finn and that he has an affection for Rachel (I don’t call it love ‘cause a person in love wouldn’t treat the love of their life like Finn treated Rachel) so why would Finn write those lyrics, he knows Rachel’s feelings towards him, on the other part we have Quinn who is insecure of her feelings keeping them a secret, she wonders if Rachel loves her back and thinks that it would be a shame if Rachel really had those feeling.

I think this song was a prediction of how Faberry would end in canon, with them pretending to love other people wondering all their life if they still belong even if they, not even at some point, never did belong to each other…
