Hit Me Like A Ray Of Sun

“Bitty. Holy fuck.”

Bitty’s eyes fly open.

Ransom is only an inch from his face.

“Wake up, Bits.”

Bitty groans and holds onto the blankets but Ransom gets a good grip on them and rips them all off at once.

“Justin Oluransi I swear if you don’t let me sleep I’m never making pie for you again. I mean it. I need my rest. I was up late studying.”

Ransom snorts.

“I was to studying.” He only talked to Jack for ten minutes. Fifteen tops. “And if you don’t let me sleep for the remaining 25 minutes that I am allowed I am taking every single piece of dessert that I make here and bringing it to the LAX house. You’re going to ruin it for everyone.”

“Jeeze,” Ransom says with a roll of his eyes. “So dramatic. Just like your boyfriend.”

HERE YOU GO GUYS

WE ARE NUMBER ONE BUT EACH “ONE” CAUSES MR. KRUPP TO YELL AT GEORGE AND HAROLD


FUCKING END ME

anonymous asked:

I've seen a post (and a post about it) about how Iroh could be just as harsh as Mai and that zutarians are taking her words out of context. Like, Iroh telling Zuko to stop trying to find the Avatar or reminding him about his past trauma is the same as Mai making such comments. Like, I pretty much understand Iroh right there; many parents tell the true to their kids even if it is harsh. Mai on the other side not even tries to reassume Zuko; she simply doesn't care.

Oh brother. Sounds like Maiko fans really need to reach so they have to throw Iroh under the bus. Iroh bringing up Zuko’s issues has nothing in common with Mai doing it. They are like the exact opposite.

Iroh’s Love Vs. Mai’s “Love”

Iroh: Sailing into Fire Nation waters … Of all the foolish things you’ve done in your sixteen years, Prince Zuko, this is the most foolish!
Zuko: I have no choice, Uncle.
Iroh: Have you completely forgotten that the Fire Lord banished you? What if you’re caught?
Zuko: I’m chasing the Avatar! My father will understand why I am returning home!
Iroh: You give him too much credit. My brother is not the understanding type!

Here’s why Iroh brings up Zuko’s banishment. He is worried about him getting caught since he’s not supposed to be sailing in Fire Nation waters. The concern is for his safety. 

Mai: So, we’re tracking down your brother and Uncle, huh?

This is really the only time Mai ever even broaches the subject of Zuko’s banishment. She is happy even though they are hunting him as a traitor. She is more concerned with his looks than his safety.

Zuko: We’re going home! After three long years, it’s unbelievable!
Iroh: It is unbelievable. I have never known my brother to regret anything.
Zuko: Did you listen to Azula? Father’s realized how important family is to him!   He cares about me!
Iroh: I care about you! And if Ozai wants you back, well, I think it may not be for the reasons you imagine.
Zuko: You don’t know how my father feels about me. You don’t know anything!
Iroh: Zuko, I only meant that in our family, things are not always what they seem.

This is Iroh’s reaction to Zuko going home to his abuser. He doesn’t want Zuko to go home because he doesn’t trust Ozai. Zuko yells at Iroh, and Iroh still accompanies Zuko in order to protect him. He only brought it up because he knew Ozai didn’t love Zuko and he was concerned. He did it because he cares.

Mai: Aren’t you cold?
Zuko: I’ve got a lot on my mind. It’s been so long, over three years since I was home. I wonder what’s changed. I wonder how I’ve changed.
Mai: I just asked if you were cold, I didn’t ask for your whole life story. Stop worrying.

Here’s how Mai reacts to Zuko going home for the first time in 3 years to a father who she knows burned and banished him. Mai dismisses Zuko when he tries to talk about it. She just wants to kiss him.

Jee: I’m sick of taking his orders! I’m tired of chasing his Avatar! I mean, who does Zuko think he is?
Iroh: Do you really want to know?
Iroh: Try to understand. My nephew is a complicated young man. He has been through much.

Here’s how Iroh reacts to Zuko’s anger problems. He tries to get the crew to have empathy for Zuko because he has had such a hard life.

Zuko: My life hasn’t been that easy either, Mai.
Mai: Whatever. That doesn’t excuse the way you’ve been acting.

Here’s how Mai reacts to Zuko showing anger problems as a result of his hard life. She doesn’t care and doesn’t want to hear any more.

Iroh: Prince Zuko, have you forgotten what happened last time you dueled a master?
Zuko: I will never forget.

Here’s how Iroh brings up the subject of how Zuko’s Agni Kai. He is concerned that Zhao is going to burn him.

Mai: Zuko, it’s just a dumb meeting. Who cares?
Zuko: I don’t.
Mai: Well good. You shouldn’t. Why would you even want to go? Just think about how things went to the last war meeting you went to.

Here is how Mai brings up the subject of the Angi Kai. She reminds him of it to change the subject because the war meeting bores her.

Iroh: And then what!? You never think these things through! This is exactly what happened when you captured the Avatar at the North Pole! You had him, and then you had nowhere to go!
Zuko: I would have figured something out!
Iroh: No! If his friends hadn’t found you, you would have frozen to death!

When Zuko goes off to do to a prison break without telling him, Iroh confronts him angrily. He is upset because Zuko is putting himself in dangerous situations and he is fearful of losing him. The only time he yells at him is because he cares. He is trying to stop him from doing the wrong thing.

Zuko: How did you know I was here?
Mai: Because I know you so well.
Zuko: But, how-
Mai: The warden’s my uncle, you idiot. The truth is, I guess I don’t know you. All I get is a letter? You could have least looked me in the eye when you ripped out my heart.

When Zuko goes off to do to a prison break without telling her, Mai confronts him angrily. It’s not because she was worried about him. She is mad that their relationship ended. She wants to stop him from doing the right thing. Basically, Iroh loves Zuko. Mai loves being in a relationship with Zuko.

anonymous asked:

Can you write about Lumiere finding out that Plumette is preagnent?

He hasn’t seen her around for several hours—”no, you fool, it’s only been minutes,” says Cogsworth, but Lumiere knows he is wrong and it has actually been hours, because that’s what it feels like—and he is getting concerned.

“Is she hiding from me??” he asks Cogsworth. “Could I have done something to offend her????”

“It has been THREE MINUTES,” says Cogsworth.

“It has been days,” and Lumiere weeps, great messy tears spilling down his nose. Cogsworth would be concerned if he hadn’t also seen Lumiere dramatically crying over misplaced porcelain, a ball change that didn’t go as planned, and a puppet show Chip did once where it took more than two acts for the lovers to get together.

“Four minutes,” says Cogsworth.

“Perhaps I have not appeared devoted enough,” Lumiere worries. “Perhaps I am not good enough in bed!”

“THAT’S QUITE ENOUGH OF THAT—”

“Cogsworth, no, don’t go, let’s practice, perhaps I have grown weak with my seductions, you be Plumette and I’ll—”

“No no no no no no!” Cogsworth cannot run very fast, but he is somehow managing now.

“He’ll break a leg, going that quick,” observes Mrs. Potts.

“He may break every bone in his body,” says Lumiere, “and it will mean nothing if I do not reconcile with Plumette. I have not seen her in twenty five years—”

“IT HAS BEEN,” yells Cogsworth, from somewhere deep inside the castle, “A TOTAL OF FIVE MINUTES AND FOURTEEN SECONDS—”

“—and I shall die without her love to guide me.”

“You shall do what, mon trésor?”

“Plumette! Ah, Plumette, you are a vision.” And she is—flushed with excitement, her curls bouncing, feathers stuck in her hair as they are always, now. She keeps plucking them out, but they keep coming back in again. She doesn’t mind it, much, and Lumiere adores it.

“Mon amour, I have something I must tell you,” and she seems shy, and Lumiere worries he is going to set himself on fire with love of her. Mrs. Potts seems worried, too; she is reaching for a water bucket and glancing at the top of his head. He must be smoking again. Ah, well.

“What is it? Chérie, what is it?” Now Plumette is bouncing on her heels, and now she leans forward to whisper in his ears. He is going to be—she is whispering that he is going to be—Lumiere is going to be

“ON FIRE,” yells Mrs. Potts, “he’s finally done it, he’s on fire. Why on earth did you have to tell him in here, Plumette?! My lord, saint’s alive, Chip, fetch another bucket. Oh, lord, I’ve soaked your best coat, and the wig, oh, Lumiere, whatever shall I do with you—”

Lumiere doesn’t care what Mrs. Potts shall do with him. He is dripping wet, and his Plumette is a miracle, and he’s soon to be a father, and comme c’est beau! He is the luckiest man in the world.

It’s Sleepover Saturday, folks! My inbox is open for all discussions on BATB.

Request from anon: Could you please write a tonyxteen daughter!reader where she usually pranks everyone and the team wants to get revenge. thank you so much and sorry if my english is not good enough, i´m from Spain hehehe

Tony Stark x Teen Daughter!Reader

Word: 1,756

Warnings: Nothing that I can really think of other than the mention of a small injury (knock to the head)….and a grumpy Bucky haha!

“[Y/N]!!!”

The angry voice boomed through the corridors on the floor where The Avengers lived and it just fuelled the amusement that you were already experiencing. You hadn’t been there to see what had happened first hand but you didn’t need to be because you had set the whole thing up and by the angry shout of your name it was clear that the prank worked wonderfully!

“I swear to god [y/n] you better show your face now!”

It was Bucky who had fallen victim this time and out of the whole team he was the only one who didn’t really seem to have a sense of humour when it came to this kind of stuff…which made him all that more entertaining to target. You backed up into a room as you covered your mouth with your hand to muffle your laugh only to hear an all too familiar clearing of a throat.

Plastering an innocent smile onto your face you quickly turned on the balls of your feet to meet your dad….the one and only Tony Stark himself.

 Dan knew that it was a bad idea for him to even attempt to play kickball. In his infinite wisdom, he had decided to actually try kicking instead of letting everyone cut him in line, and now he’s paying for it. Coach Phelan is crouched next to him on the ground where he’s sitting, clutching his left ankle. He’s trying really hard to not cry but it’s growing more and more difficult by the second. He had torqued the fuck out of it when he went down.

Hope Is Still The Strongest Aspect: Wherein I Wonder Aloud If Y’all Even Read The Same Fuckin’ Webcomic As Me

So! How’s it hangin’ y’all? This post seeeems to have upset some of you. I made that post to be a funny look at how the Hope aspect works, ‘cause hey! If I’m gonna say Hope runs on willful ignorance then I may as well have some fun with it, right?

Unfortunately, the humor was lost on a lot of y’all. Fair enough. Tone is hard to convey through text. But apparently the issue wasn’t with me comparing Hope players to shitty, closed minded people who deliberately ignore reality, it was with me saying that Hope was the strongest aspect. Not the best, not the most charming or loveable or perfect. The strongest.

And apparently that didn’t jive.

So while I’ve been drowning in anons accusing me of talking up Hope for the sake of my ego (it’s true. You’ve found me out. I keep my ego in my homestuck side blog. However will I survive unless everyone knows my made up Title is the strongest and bestest of the the made up Titles. How will I go oonnnnnn.) I decided to go back over it and think about why I made that part of the post, and why that was the part that people took offense to. 

“Oh Sylphie,” y’all might say. “Nobody would’ve minded your jokey funtimes post if you had sourced it. If you had backed up your claims. You’re work is usually so in-depth, why didn’t you do that with this one?”

Well, the reason I didn’t bother doing that on my ‘Hope is the Strongest Aspect’ post, and I swear to god somebody’s gonna fucking doxx me for this:


***I thought this was so colossally dumbfuck obvious that everybody knew it already.***


That’s right. I was genuinely surprised when I got people disagreeing with me about which aspect was the strongest, and you can imagine my shock when the anons started rolling in. The reason I didn’t bust out my motherfucking dissertation skills wasn’t because of my ego, or because I didn’t have evidence, but because I actually didn’t process that y’all failing to arrive at this conclusion on your own was even a fucking possibility.

I mean, even aside from the part where Aranea says it in plain motherfucking words:

there are loads of narrative reasons to come to this conclusion, but apparently nobody else was looking too closely.

And since y’all didn’t, I’m gonna break it down reeeaaaaaal nice and simple for you, and we’re gonna start by talking about The Worf Effect.

((This shit’s gonna get real fucking long, but if you sent me shit on anon, called me literally any fucking adjective or otherwise doubted me where you knew I would read it, I expect you to fucking read this whole goddamn thing. Y’all made me read your fucking horseshit, and I’m willing to bet actual fucking cash money that you didn’t bother putting half the thought into yours that you expect me to put into mine. You want me to back my shit up? Here it fucking is, now you’ve gotta fucking read it.))

(((If you politely disagreed but didn’t go on anon or say any rude shit, still read it and just pretend I wrote it less angrily.)))

1.) THE WORF EFFECT

The Worf Effect is a pretty well known trope, named for Worf in Star Trek: The Next Generation, but even if you’re not familiar with tropes (or Star Trek) it’s pretty simple to figure out. It’s basically this:

Person A (Worf)  is very strong. If you want to establish that Person B is incredibly strong, show them easily defeating Person A.

Like I said, pretty basic. This is usually used to introduce tough new villains, but could also potentially be used to establish a newly gained ability. For example, if I want to show off that my OC, Marisu Strongy, was very STRONG, I might show her going over to Equius, challenging him to an arm wrestle, then gripping his hand so hard it breaks his fingers before slamming his arm back so hard it breaks the table in half.

“Holy shit!” say the trolls. “Marisu is so strong!” say the trolls.

“Holy shit!” say the masses. “What a fucking Mary Sue!” say the masses.

Really basic technique. So who in Homestuck qualifies as a stand-in Worf?

2.) THE WORFS

So, Homestuck is not exactly a stranger to overpowered characters, but the folks that stand out head and shoulders above the rest in terms of sheer power level are The First Guardians, the Master Classes, and of course Lord English. 

Let’s break down the First Guardians before anybody else.

Powered by the space-time anomaly that is The Green Sun, a star the size of two universes, First Guardians are gratuitously OP. Doc Scratch would never shut the fuck up about his omnipotence, omniscience, and incredible charm. Bec Noir was a game breaking boss to such a degree that after breaking the kids’ game he went over to the trolls’ game just so he could break that too. And Jade is, well, Jade. So let’s go over how they’re defeated.

How do you defeat a First Guardian? Well, basically, you don’t.

Doc Scratch stopped existing of his own accord once he succeeded in his plan to bring in Lord English. Bec Noir was stopped in his game breaking rampage, not because he had any actual weakness in his powers, but because PM developed an identical power set and the two were forced into a three year long stasis, which even then was only broken by Jade, who also had First Guardian powers. 

And Jade. Oooooh, Jade. 

Jade’s First Guardian powers are so over the top that, from a narrative perspective, it makes her a liability. If Jade could be allowed to wander freely with her power, she could fix just about any problem she came across and there would be no more narrative tension. Which is why, after her moment in the spotlight in [s] Cascade, Jade is shoehorned from position to another, all of which make sure she either can’t use her powers or, if she can use them, it’s for the wrong team. In the Green Yard she can’t use her powers. When she gets to the next session she gets mind controlled and works for the Batterwitch (for the sake of this argument I am not counting mind control as a defeat, since it’s not directly outweighing her powers). The cure to mind control is keeping her asleep, so she can’t use her powers. She doesn’t have anybody to fight when she’s in the Furthest Ring with Callie, and when she does finally come back, she gets matched up with Bec Noir and PM, so she can’t curbstomp anybody. Jade is so overpowered that the narrative itself won’t let her go all out in a fight because the story would be destroyed in the process. The other First Guardians count, but Jade is 100% a Worf.

As for the Master Classes, they get a bit trickier. While the First Guardians regularly interact with the main characters and make their power levels very clear in the process, the only two  Master Classes spend a lot of time in isolation, or else only fight against other people or with other objects that make guessing the extent of their abilities really difficult. (I am not counting Jujus as a potential Worf or defeater of a Worf, because the extent of their abilities is unknown).

It’s implied, though, that they are a lot stronger. Alt-Calliope collapses the Green Sun and makes it look easy. This would seem? to imply? that a fully realized Master Class is stronger than a First Guardian???? But it’s not entirely clear.

Making matters worse, there’s Lord English.

It’s hard to say how much of his ability is because he is a Master Class, how much of it comes from Doc Scratch, a First Guardian, how much of it is reliant on his True Immortality from defeating Yaldabaoth. Basically, it’s a crapshoot. But he’s really, really strong. 

So who is able to consistently curbstomp these hyper OP motherfuckers?

3.) APPLICATION OF THE WORF EFFECT

A Page of Motherfucking Hope, that’s the fuck who.

When Aranea ‘healed’ him and he went all Hopey, he was able to take out Grimbark Jade without, seemingly, being cognizant of it.

And, of course, in Caliborn’s Masterpiece

So, this should be the end of the discussion! In conjunction with Aranea’s earlier statement we can come to the conclusion that -

“But Sylphie!” the masses cry out. “Pages are canonically the strongest regular class once they’re fully realized! Jake isn’t able to fucking wreck the strongest people in canon because he’s a Hope Player, he’s able to because he’s a Page!”

((at which point I would like to throw some serious side-eye at the folks who are fine with there being stronger and weaker Classes but get their panties in a massive fucking twist over the idea of Aspects being anything but perfectly fucking balanced.))

In response to the Page argument, I say you can fuck right back off and look at Aranea again.

After getting the Ring of Life, Aranea mind controls several ghost Damaras to make them move a golden battleship. Aranea is able to mentally affect ghosts and have their powers influence the living world.

Does she cure a bunch of dead Tavros ghosts’ mental trauma and make them do a Windy thing? No. What about a bunch of dead Horuss ghosts? No. She opts for one motherfucking Page of Hope rather than a horde of Pages from another class.

“But wait!” cry the masses, yet again. “What if ghosts are just really weak? She had to use 3 Damaras to lift the ship after all! It isn’t that Hope is the strongest aspect, it’s that Jake was alive while the others weren’t!”

Well first off that’s ignoring the “unrivaled 8y that of any other aspect” line, but frankly who hasn’t ignored that, right? Kurloz still mind controls Meulin while he’s a ghost, Alt Calliope collapsed the Green Fucking Sun while she was a ghost, Feferi convinced the Horror Terrors to create the dream bubbles while she was a ghost. Ghosts lose relevance, not power. Please come back with a better argument. 

But you know what? Let’s look at that further. What have other Pages done when fully realized?

Horuss doesn’t do much, but Tavros is able to singlehandedly form an entire fucking army to go fight Lord English. What a cool and awesome display of power! He earns his many dances. No doubt they will fucking curbstomp that misgoynistic green asshole!

Oh wait.

The army was just there as a distraction so they could deploy the House Juju as a secret weapon. Less impressive than Jake, so Jake is stronger, Hope is the strongest fucking aspe-

“BUT WAIT!” scream the masses, as I try to keep myself from ramming my face through a fucking wall out of sheer frustration. “Tavros’s army was up against Lord English, while Jake only beat Caliborn! There’s no proof that Jake is stronger! Heck, John was able to beat Caliborn in a fight! This is a false equivalence that means absolutely nothing!”

Well hold onto your fucking hats because I’ve still got more explaining to do. God forbid I should leave even the tiniest fucking amount of space for confusion. Even the tiniest fucking crack in this logic house I’m building. Y’all will cram yourselves into it Enigma of the Fucking Amigara Fault style and then blame me for my shitty construction. SO LET’S KEEP FUCKING ROLLING. 

I am not counting John’s kerfuffle with Caliborn as an example of the Worf effect, for the same reason I’m not claiming that Clubs Deuce is the strongest player in the game for taking Jade out with a Barbasol bomb. 

Attacking a strong enemy when they are not strong is not an example of the Worf Effect. Caliborn didn’t have total control over his abilities yet, he hadn’t collected the Felt, he hadn’t fought Yaldabaoth, he hadn’t gained True Immortality, and the fight reads as a joke where neither of them are seriously injured. Likewise when Clubs Deuce killed Jade, she hadn’t gone Dog Tier. It doesn’t count. This is the same reason I’m not espousing Aranea as being the strongest character for crushing Jade beneath a building after Jake knocked her out. If the opponent is not strong at the time you fight them, defeating them does not prove you are stronger. 

“But that doesn’t change the fact that Lord English is stronger than Caliborn! You can’t prove that Jake’s powers are stronger than Tavros’s!”

Yyyyyyes I can. 

It’s true that Tavros never goes toe to toe with Caliborn, Jake never goes toe to toe with Lord English, and we don’t have enough of a grasp on their power level to say for sure who would win what fight. But you know who we do have a grasp on?

Motherfucking Jade Fucking Harley.

Jade can shrink and teleport planets within moments of getting her powers. Shrinking and teleporting people is a cinch for her. But this is an army of God Tiers, including dead Kanayas and Porrims, who could potentially unshrink people or move them back to the battlefield. Depending on how cohesively the army is and how prepared they are to fight Jade, there’s even a chance they could win!

But she would still be able to affect them, and that was never on the table for Jake. 

“BUT SYLPHIE!” the masses wail in agony. I stare into the distance. My eyes are dead. My soul is on another plane of existence. “JUST BECAUSE HOPE IS STRONGER THAN VOID OR BREATH DOESN’T MEAN IT’S THE STRONGEST ASPECT OF ALL! SYLPHIE, SEE REASON!” I cannot see reason. I can only see the canon fucking words in the fucking webcomic.

Fucking

And finally my last fucking point. The big man himself.

4.) ANDREW HUSSIE IS NOT A FUCKING IDIOT

The masses scoff amongst themselves. “Sylphie thinks if you disagree with her you’re an idiot. She would apply this to the creator of homestuck himself. How foolish she is! How arrogant!” They continue to scoff, but I am no longer here. Where am I? Even I do not know. But I am gone. 

Now, seriously.

Andrew fucking Hussie is a goddamn genius of literature. That’s why we’re all here, isn’t it? Because Andrew Hussie knows what the fuck he’s doing with a narrative, and he can write some compelling shit because of it.

Do you think.

Andrew fucking Hussie.

Would bring in the Worf Effect twice for the Page of fucking Hope.

Would have another Page have another Pagey moment that is very. fucking. decidedly. not Worf Effect shit. 

Would write Aranea’s goddamn line. 

On. Fucking. Accident?

This is a man who will bust out pesterchum handles representing GCAT strands of DNA, only to have the character with the astrological sign of cancer cause a deviation, representing literal cancer as some side shit. As a fucking easter egg. That’s the shit he’s not even gonna call attention to.

This is a man whose grasp on temporal mechanics is so fine that you can follow the location of a fucking wallet through three different fucking universes just by going back and paying a-fucking-ttention. 

Andrew Hussie is not a fucking idiot.

Speaking of subtle shit Andrew Hussie does, I wanna to talk about some visual associations he makes with the Hope aspect. Everybody has noticed the correlation between Life and Food (looking at you, Batterwitch) but far fewer people have noticed the correlation between Hope and… putting it politely, procreation. 

Setting aside the multiple, gratuitous crotch shots, all three Hope players are notable for their romantic relationships - the Destruction classes for their failing relationships, and Jake for the struggles of the people who want to enter a romantic relationship with him. More than that, though, Hope has multiple, direct correlations with children and childbirth.

Or, for the Destruction classes, the destruction of children or the parent/child bond.

Not to mention Eridan’s whole thing of white stuff shooting out of his rod to hit his flush crush, romantic rival, and the matriorb.

Real fuckin’ subtle, isn’t it?

“But so what?” ask the masses. “What does this have to do with being powerful inside the realm of Sburb?”

The game that’s filled with reproduction-based imagery?

The game that is literally about procreation on a universal level?

You mean the game that punishes you for not believing you can do the impossible?

Yeah, no, no reason for Hope to be the most powerful Aspect in the game of Sburb. No conceivable reasons here. Definitely nothing Andrew Hussie canonically wrote into the fucking comic. It’s gotta be my ego talking. I mean, I’ve never tried to play myself off as a Master Class, but obviously my sense of self is entirely dependent on people thinking I have the best Title. Especially with all the other motherfucking times I’ve done that right? I’ve sure never said that Hope is powered through willful ignorance and that Hope players tend to be stupid. I’d never say anything like that, with my ego riding on this and all.

But, real talk, if y’all could collectively get off my fucking ass that’d be absolutely swell. An absolutely abstract kinda real fucking good times going on. Get off my metaphorical dick unless you have an actual goddamn reason to think I am wrong, and in that case think reeeaaaaalllll fucking hard about whether that’s actually the fucking case before I have to waste my time with another goddamn essay, just ‘cause y’all couldn’t be bothered to pay attention to the fucking Sylph. Am I talking about me or Aranea? Who’s to fucking say. Either! Both! 

Hope next time y’all can learn to fucking read before making me take time out of my day! ^U^ Toodles~

Beautiful Disaster (Cover)

I’m a musician and singing is my job but I very rarely get to sing songs that I love because they wouldn’t go down well in a gig setting. So I record covers of them for funsies instead. This ones a fav of mine, Beautiful Disaster by Kelly Clarkson (I used this for the backing track). It seriously could’ve been written specifically for Solas, it fits him so well! If you do have a listen, excuse the sound quality! It’s not bad but it’s not great either… I only have pretty basic software but it gets the job done, I s'pose!

“He drowns in his dreams
An exquisite extreme I know
He’s as damned as he seems
More heaven than a heart could hold

And if I try to save him
My whole world could cave in
It just ain’t right
Lord, it just ain’t right

Oh and I don’t know
I don’t know what he’s after
But he’s so beautiful
He’s such a beautiful disaster
And if I could hold on
Through the tears and the laughter
Would it be beautiful
Or just a beautiful disaster

He’s magic and myth
As strong as what I believe
A tragedy with
More damage than a soul should see
And do I try to change him
It’s so hard not to blame him
Hold me tight
Baby, hold me tight

Oh and I don’t know
I don’t know what he’s after
But he’s so beautiful
He’s such a beautiful disaster
And if I could hold on
Through the tears and the laughter
Would it be beautiful
Or just a beautiful disaster

I’m longing for love and the logical
But he’s only happy hysterical
I’m searching for some kind of miracle
Waited so long
Waited so long

He’s soft to the touch
But frayed at the end he breaks
He’s never enough
And still he’s more than I can take

Oh and I don’t know
I don’t know what he’s after
But he’s so beautiful
He’s such a beautiful disaster
And if I could hold on
Through the tears and the laughter
Would it be beautiful
Or just a beautiful disaster

He’s beautiful
Lord, he’s so beautiful
He’s beautiful…”
