“You better do it a lot, whatever it is. Do it every day, and do the stuff that scares you, because you can’t avoid doing it the first time. You can’t skip that. You can’t just jump ahead to like, veteran, ok. Get out and work. Get out and work! Make things. Make things badly. When you do that, it’s not just for your audience, it’s not just to become known, it’s not to get impressions on Facebook or the website or whatever. It’s to become who you’re supposed to be. The elevator pitch is - figure out who you are. Because if you figure out who you are, then the goal after that is how to keep doing that as long as possible. Right? The goal is to do that as long as possible. But you have to figure out who you are. And figuring out who you are basically means that you, and this is not easy, you at some point figure out how to turn off the noise and turn off the anxiety and turn off the insecurity that goes with being an artist. Exposing yourself, basically, and you figure out how to make things that you can always sleep at night with because no one elses name is on it. So if you’re a young artist, the first and foremost goal, I don’t care what generation you’re in, is figure out who you are and the way you know who you are is you can do that thing over and over and over and over and you’ll still go to bed proud of it, ok, because after you do that, you’re bulletproof. You can be Paul McCartney, or play in a garage and you won’t give a shit.” - Taylor Hanson

bc like. now i want clarke and lexa, post graduation. lexa is an auror and clarke maybe is too and they have a history and haven’t spoken in a few years, not since just after graduation, and lexa shows up at her door. initially, clarke is pissed bc wtf why is she here it’s been years? and lexa just stands, her back straight, and says, ‘war is brewing clarke, i need you’.
and they end up working for the same underground organization, a la the order, to try and stop the next batch of bad wizards that are trying to rise to power. and they end up like. on watch together or practicing dueling together and eventually the group is quarantined to a safe house that’s protected by the fidelis charm and they share a room and it’s Tension.
and lexa gets kidnapped and clarke freaks out because she has to save her before they kill her. meanwhile, lexa is being tortured as the group of evil wizards tries to figure out who the secret keeper to the house is but lexa won’t budge.
when clarke comes to her rescue, she’s exhausted after hours of being put under the cruciatus curse and just passes out in clarke’s arms and ends up at st. mungo’s, in a coma for a few days, and when she wakes up, clarke is by her side.
