THE THOUGHT IN THE TEMPLE

Now it’s sunny and warm even though a few days ago we were covered in heavy snow. I’m home and it’s lovely but I miss travelling. I miss the fjords and the expansive train systems and the bakeries. 

My playwriting class is fun I guess but it’s disappointing too. Last year was so perfect, the professor taught to an incredibly high standard and it was hell sometimes but it was brilliant and I probably won’t get that opportunity again. In playwriting we just talk about basic stuff and look at diagrams of the inciting incident and rising action, blah blah blah, and talk about what a protagonist is. It’s frustrating, to have gone from such an advanced class to such a basic one. 

I’m reading the Iliad and it’s amazing and after I graduate I am going to read so much and it will be great. (I hope I graduate soon.) 

I think I’m going to try and start posting some of my writing on here just for practice and to get feedback. Fair warning.

[Visenya] was a warrior, more comfortable in ringmail than in silk, she was apt to dress as a warrior, with her long silver-gold hair in braided coils or bound in rings. She wielded the Valyrian steel sword Dark Sister. [x]

“A farmer wants his son to be afraid of beautiful women, so that he will not leave home too soon, so he tells a story about how one drowned his brother’s cousin’s friend in a lake, not because he was a pig who deserved to be drowned, but because beautiful women are bad, and also witches. And it doesn’t matter she didn’t ask to be beautiful, or to be born in a lake, or to live forever, or to not know how men breathe until they stop doing it.”

We just did it. Any time I have a love interest in a movie, it’s my job to actually fall in love with them. While I was making this movie, I totally fell in love with Dan.” - Dane DeHaan

""Why do we continue looking inwards? Why?! Why do we fight each other about this piece or that piece of land? Why are we not looking outwards to the West? If we raided together, we would not need to fight amongst ourselves. We would not need to kill anymore of our young folk. But instead, offer them land, land that they can farm." [x]

Perhaps in some other life I could have refused, could have torn my hair and screamed, and made him face his choice alone. But not in this one. He would sail to Troy, and I would follow, even in death.
