they will not write about us because darling
we’re not in love
and we both know that poems ought to be about lovers
not best friends halfway in the middle
god, i’d never kiss you
but our hands fit like puzzle pieces and your smile makes my heart sing and you cried when you said you love me
voice thick with fear and awe and i knew then i could break you and that terrifies me because you deserve better but i would die for you
when i was thirteen my bedroom window looked out on the big dipper every summer and it made me feel safe but if every star in that constellation went out i’d still have your hands smoothing a brush through my hair (your eyes shine brighter than those distant suns anyway)
we are not the stuff of legends in this world where it’s only love if you fuck the stories people want to hear end in a kiss not a high five or a fistbump but if i’ve got you i don’t need to make history
and while you do not kiss away my tears you let them seep into your shirt and to me, that is just as good"
— not every beautiful thing has to be a love story (g.c.r.)
shanryart said: Hi! I'm wondering what do you think about the mother-son dynamic between mako and lin? Maybe not exactly mother and son but you probably know what i mean. In season 4 they're so close!
it’s adorable, in a kinna maternal way but also just like, IT’S NICE THAT LIN HAS A FRIEND. I assume and hope that she’s supposed to get on well with the rest of the police lol, but within Team Avatar it’s nice to have someone she’d get along with because their normally offputting personalities work together. It’s nice for her to be connected to someone in team avatar who isn’t Tenzin. I hope they expand on it. On the more meta side of things it’s also cool having a young guy who’s mentor is an older woman.
also mako doin the look last ep was great.
'i know it's not a GOOD movie but i still really love it okay': will be written on my gravestone, probably
