This is an important lesson to remember when you’re having a bad day, a bad month, or a shitty year. Things will change: you won’t feel this way forever. And anyway, sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your soul needs most. I believe you can’t feel real joy unless you’ve felt heartache. You can’t have a sense of victory unless you know what it means to fail. You can’t know what it’s like to feel holy until you know what it’s like to feel really fucking evil. And you can’t be birthed again until you’ve died.

The stars were my best friends. The air was full of legends and phantoms, full of mythical and fair-tale creatures, which suddenly flew away over the roof, so that one was at one with the firmament.

What is your character like when they’re sick? Like, flu from hell, bad cold, etc? Are they a good patient or a bad patient? Do they tough it out or are they a giant baby? Inquiring minds want to know!
You know,for all the clowning around that vallaunius does, he’d handle being sick really well. I mean sure, he’d probably gripe a little (who wouldn’t), and he might over exaggerate around Jie just to make him laugh so the kid wouldn’t worry so much, but he’d certainly do all the things you’re supposed to do (bedrest, stay hydrated, etc.) to help kick that flu’s ass.
Vandy, on the other hand … I can see her being pathetic. Like, she wouldn’t expect or ask Ellister to do things for her, but by the Light she’d make it known just how miserable she felt and ohgodswegottadosomethingaboutClovissohedoesn’tgetsicktoo (there’s a cycle here of them asking the neighbor to keep him until she feels better, but he keeps escaping to come back home because he’s worried about her, and finally they say screw it and just let the rabbit stay - and somehow he keeps healthy).
*coughs* Anyway. Giant shadowy wolf baby. Totally.
I notice that Autumn is more the season of the soul than of nature.

In dark and difficult times, we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy
