Aries: There’s something inside you worth saving. I hope you see it. You are worth more then everything they are judging you by. I hope you can see that now.

Taurus:  You’ll grow from this. Change is scary. But you deserve something so much better than what you’ve got. So much better then what you’re willing to let yourself have. I hope you know that now. I hope you see everything I see in you.

Gemini: Let go. Let go of the past, because as much as it hurts, it’s worth it. Let go and walk away because you can’t build a city out of rubble and whats left. You just have to take the lessons learned.

Cancer: You’ve been fighting for so long. You’ve only got a little farther to go. You’re winning this war. You’re winning. You just have to keep at it for a bit longer. I know you’re so tired. But hang on. You can do it.

Leo:  Some things aren’t what you asked for, but it’s better. Something more magical and great then you could of ever imagined. I know it’s scary. But it’s magical at the same time. Trust me.

Virgo: Acknowledge how far you’ve come. Being an adult is scary. Being grown is hard. But you’re here. You’ve grown. You’ve become this beautiful amazing thing. You are so wonderful now. I am so proud.

Libra: They do not win. Let them tear this world apart. That is not winning. That is being petty and stupid. They are not worth your time effort or energy. YOu are better then them.

Scorpio:  You don’t need to be who you use to be when you look at those photos. You aren’t that person anymore and you should be proud of that. Most people couldn’t survive this.

Sagittarius:  Make something new. Build a playground on top of a cemetery so you could still hear laughter. Learn to love this place, even if it is still full of bad memories.

Capricorn:  You’ve got scars. Their still beautiful. You are still beautiful. Still stunning. Still magical. You are still wonderful despite all the trauma they’ve put you through.

Aquarius: Coming back isn’t defeat. You have not lost because you couldn’t do what you wanted. Everything happens for a reason, including you coming back. This by far isn’t the end, I hope you see that.

Pisces: You deserve a round of applause for all that you’ve done. You deserve a victory award. I know life doesn’t hand them out. But you still deserve it. You’ve done so much and I am so proud.

‘My mom always said he was a firecracker, which just meant he was always getting speeding tickets and jumping on tables at family reunions and stuff. He always had so many ideas. He was so hyper.’ Adam and Gansey looked at each other. They had always had the sense that the Noah they knew was not the true Noah. It was just disconcerting to hear how much Noahness death had stripped. It was impossible to not wonder what Noah would have done with himself if he had lived.
