how strange, this feeling that my life’s begun at last // what a life i might have known!

AU: With all the misery going on for the past few days, it had taken Esmeralda a lot to force a smile. While her thoughts wandered off to places she’d rather not think about, she subconsciously brought herself to Clopin’s little carriage. Watching how he entertained the local children with his play, she remembered how he used to tell similar stories to her, back when she was a child. Life had been so much easier, when tucked away completely in the covers and blankets back at Clopin’s home. It didn’t take her long, or a genuine smile fought its way onto Esmeralda’s face. She made a note to herself; if she ever felt like the world was falling down on her shoulders again, that she’d just look up Clopin. Just like she used to do as a child.
Love, there is no sin in it
Love, with your hands
Burn, with desire
Love, and change the world
Being human meme: three quotes 2/3
"Where do I belong? Where do I fit? Who are my people? Where do my loyalties lie? We all choose our tribe. It’s that need to belong, to live within boundaries. ‘Cause it’s scary on the outside, on the fringes. Some labels are forced on us. They mark us, set us apart ‘til we’re like ghosts, just drifting through other people’s lives. But only if we let the labels hold. You can piss your whole life away, trying out who you might be. It’s when you’ve worked out who you are that you can really start to live."
You know what this is? You’ve forgotten what it’s like to see your own reflection. To be faced with yourself. What you are every day. Mitchell, the house is my way of coping. I want to close that door—I’m allowed to close that door and forget.
