whimsical things

i really, really want a plot where muse a is a naive, sweet, romantic, whimsical little thing with a whole lot of optimism and sunshine in their veins and muse b is the complete opposite; a total player who has someone new in their bed every weekend and hates responsibilities and just spends a lot of their time fucking around. somehow these two have been friends for a while, despite their differing personalities, and one day muse a ends up having to move out of their apartment due to a fire or an infestation or something and muse b is the one who offers to put them up for the time being. it’s all well and good except muse a has terrible nightmares constantly and one night muse b is sick and tired of it (and deep down a little concerned) so gets into bed with muse a until they stop crying and shaking and fall asleep in muse b’s arms instead. cue awkward muses sleeping in the same bed every night and it actually helping muse a a lot with the nightmares, and lots of cuddling and feelings ensue. muse b, being the player they are, are terrified of the idea of liking someone but muse a is pretty much already head over heels and ANGST !!

Heavily, heavily, 

the dreamers come

like fireflies through your bedroom window.

With magic wands and rainbow hair,

and twinkling eyes. 

They will weave a soft dream into your head,

by a magic moonbeam,

a bending oak tree. 

They will wave their hands

and make the shadows move

like animals leaping off into vast unknowns

that leap out of your eyes. 

The dream,

your most sacred dream,

you’ve kept it. 

Close in your fist. 

Until forever. 

But the sky and its colours

are being repainted. 

You don’t want to go

and you don’t want change

but every star has changed position. 

Look through the window with new eyes. 

Take chances and let your dream slip away. 

The Chanter

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the well-wishes for my birthday! You guys have been a huge part of a good year, so I can only wish to keep you near me. As I’m not that good with words unless I’m actually writing fanfiction (LOL), here is a (very) whimsical thing that I wrote on the flight back from Scotland. Love you all so very much!

The Chanter

I knew she was a witch from the moment I found her.

How could she be anything else? No woman shone as bright, laughed as hard, talked as freely, walked with such purpose. She was different and misplaced, as a pearl amongst common dull rocks. Her amber eyes saw through me with one glance – she bared me with her gaze. Once Claire reached that place inside me that had belonged only to me until that moment, I knew the greatness of her power.

And yet, all the time I loved her, she chose never to bewitch me.  What was given between us was given freely, honest offerings of our hearts.

She only asked me one thing - “Jamie, please, never ask me about my past or I’d be swept away”. As we laid together for the first time, I fell asleep with my head against her breast, surrendered to her once more. And I dreamt of her heart, beating inside her chest but visible to me, as if a window had opened between us – made of silver and broken, cracked wide open. A million little pieces, swirling and twirling, trying to find the appropriate way to become whole again.

Each time I came to her, raw as a child in wonder, fearfully offering her my heart to replace hers, so beautiful yet shattered. I loved her body, kissed her brow and tasted her mysteries, in hope that in time she would reveal the terrible things in her past. But I never asked.

Everytime I closed my eyes, lying next to her, I would see her heart and rejoiced – for where once was only destruction and absence, now something else was present, like liquid metal, filling the gaps and recreating what was lost.

One day, as we sheltered together in the heather, she whispered to me “Thank you, my love”. The clouds were dark and pressing, like a veil that guarded all redeeming light from our sight. She rose from my embrace and started to softly blow in the direction of the clouds. The wind howled, murmurs of leaves and of the living creatures of yesterday, celebrating the coming of light. Claire was The Chanter in that moment – raising a melody capable of reaching the skies.

The clouds drifted away from the moon. She smiled at me, beaming. The light of the night caressed the woman I knew was a witch, and in her chest was a silver-gilt heart, whole and strong. And – Thank God – mine.

How To Tell if a Sign Likes You

Aries: The Aries will playfully flirt with their crush. They have a lot of courage but that doesn’t mean they won’t get flustered by their crush from time to time. The Aries will extend invitations to you and want to hang out with you more publicly. Aries are more direct and don’t like to fool around so if an Aries likes you they would be straight forward about it.

Taurus: A Taurus comes off shy with their emotions, so be patient with them. They are cautious with who they want to be romantically involved with so any gesture out of the ordinary can be a sign they like you. They typically communicate their feelings best through smiles and caring attitude.

Gemini: They will want to talk to you A LOT. Expect them to find out all your contact information. They are also known to be pretty flirty as well and they try to play it off as a whimsical thing. Though known for conversing, you may notice the Gemini engaging in deeper, more meaningful conversations, as well as taking more interest in your thoughts. 

Cancer: They aren’t obvious with their feelings so it would be subtle hints. They will get a little more clingy with you and try to hang out with you or text you more often; the Cancer would want to spend a lot of time with you. They would also try to direct your attention to them because they want to be noticed by you. You may notice shy glances and sweet smiles.

Leo: You would get a sense that they are interested in you because they want to hear what you have to say and learn more about you and not just talk about themself. They would want to make time to spend with you and you will start feeling like they are very loyal to you.

Virgo: They smile around you a lot! They are able to open up to you more easily and are more hesitant to critique you! They will also show how much you mean to them by displaying their protective side so expect them to defend you when you are faced with confrontation or when you are doing risky things.

Libra: Libras come off as flirty at times, but keep in mind their friendliness is often to blame because of that. When a Libra likes you they will smile a lot when you are around and want to spend more time with you. They will also bring you up in conversations plenty of times with other people (so ask a mutual friend if this is happening). They will also avoid conflict with you at all costs!

Scorpio: They will share a little more about themselves that they wouldn’t share to just anybody. Look into their body language such as the looks they may give you; they are known to give their crushes a deep and intense stare. They also may play hard to get; they like to see how determined you are to capture their heart.

Sagittarius: They like relationships to be fun and light and take that approach when confronting their crush. They wear a bright smile around their crush and are very enthusiastic when talking to them. Sagittariuses are usually laughing and open with their crush.

Capricorn: Capricorns are patient when it comes to love. They come off as aloof and its hard to read just what they are feeling. When a Capricorn likes you they will try to reach out and give a helping hand whenever they can. They are cautious with their crushes so they won’t make a move right away and will take time to get to know you more. They are very caring towards their crush and would want to help guide their crush toward success. 

Aquarius: They are unpredictable in nature and the same goes with how they are with their crushes. They value communication and intelligent so they will being picking apart their crush’s brain. They are constantly approaching their crushes with new topics and discussions. Their heart of gold will show around their crush and they will always want to be there for their crush to help them and provide comfort. 

Pisces: Pisces bring out their sensitive sides and really want to attach themselves to the person they desire. They are sweet and shy around their crushes. The Pisces may come across distant at time but only because they value personal space. They need time to themselves so don’t take offence to this; they mean no harm by doing this.

Braska

{死霊}  Steady footsteps carried the warrior across the field of flowers. Strange he thought, to finally find himself here. He had fought for so long. Lived long after he should have ceased to be, that the idea of death was almost an enigma to him now. 

It wasn’t until he saw the familiar flowing cap of the high summoner that he felt somewhat at ease. 

Time had worn on Auron’s body, yet there Braska stood just as he remembered him.

Fate was whimsical

A million things he wanted to say to his old friend. A lifetime of things he had to tell him, about Spira, about life, and about his daughter. Yet he did not know where to begin.  

He simply bowed his head, his eyes closing slowly as he whispered words he had not spoken for nearly ten years. 

“My lord.” 

There are rooms where there weren’t rooms before, and I have a birdcage in my living room that is people-sized. Then there’s a pond in the living room as well, and I want to get stingrays. I don’t want people to think I’m crazy, but wouldn’t that be cool? My friends refer to the place as “The Imaginarium” due to all the “whimsical” things I have in it.

My own question: the questions I ask myself on a daily will lead to a spiral of uncontrolled chain of thought that will only result in unwanted content that will most probably ruin your day soooooo NO 

Unrequited love seemed like such a whimsical, poetical thing to me, 
the stuff of Shakespeare’s tragedies
and modern day poets.
That is, until I started drowning in it.
Because that’s what it’s like- drowning.
It eats away at you,
fills up the spaces in your lungs
like water rushing in to take the place of air.
Every time you breathe,
it hurts, because it’s one more moment you have to live
knowing that what you feel
is all your own.

Alone.


“Moving on” is such an easy thing to say
until you’re paralysed, frozen, choking;
fixated on something that will never be yours.


And I think the worst part is this,
how you cannot tear your eyes away 
and you cannot let go, cannot unwind your fingers
from where they cling to their shadow,
because they have become
everything.

—  I. Song // Unrequited love

Non-exhaustive list of whimsical things:
-buying a single onion, potato, or piece of fruit, and nothing else
-carrying a pot plant in the street or on a tram or train (not a bus)

Hobbit Big Bang entry

Shufùtu-zailû by paranoid_fridge

Bilbo Baggins of Bag End had been born with an unusual talent: the ability to move objects with his mind. But only when he is reluctantly drawn into Thorin Oakenshield’s quest he learns to wield this power. He faces orcs, trolls and a dragon, and also learns that even a small hobbit may play a larger part, that his heart is a whimsical thing, and that home means more than just a place.
