Thank God I Am Happy

loquaciousquark:

sometimes when I think about Fenris I think about the days right before Varania arrived in Kirkwall

and how guardedly hopeful he must have been that it would turn out well, that he’d be reunited with this link to his past

and I imagine him, like, slowly beginning to clean up his mansion, not anything serious, you know, nothing that Isabela or Hawke would be able to comment on if they came by

but maybe straightening up a few of the broken mirrors and torn paintings, dusting off the rickety old table and chairs in the great hall, maybe stacking the bodies neatly by the back door at last

maybe repairing the shattered window in the nicer guest bedroom, just in case

and then that morning before he goes bothering to look at himself in one of the mirrors for the first time a long time, and knowing that even if he can’t do anything about the lyrium he can at least make sure his armor is clean and polished and the leathers in as good a shape as he can get them considering how old they are, because if he can’t remember her at least he can give her a brother she’s not ashamed to be seen with

aaaaaaaaaaaand then Danarius shows up instead.

F R O M   B O O K S

Michael Ondaatje, from In the Skin of a Lion
The first sentence of every novel should be: Trust me, this will take time, but there is order here, very faint, very human. Meander if you want to get to town.

Michael Ondaatje, from The English Patient
We die containing a richness of lovers and tribes, tastes we have swallowed, bodies we have plunged into and swum up as if rivers of wisdom, characters we have climbed into as if trees, fears we have hidden in as if caves. I wish for all this to be marked on my body when I am dead. I believe in such a cartography.

Jeanette Winterson, from The PowerBook
A story is a tightrope between two worlds.

Dave Eggers, from What is the What
I am alive and you are alive and so we must fill the air with our words.

Dave Eggers, from A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius
We are unusual and tragic and alive.

F R O M   P O E M S

Jorie Graham, from “Two Paintings by Gustav Klimt“ 
To receive the light
and return it…

Wole Soyinka, from “Dedication
Be ageless as dark peat.

Luka Lesson, from “May Your Pen Grace the Page
May your black pen ‘yin’ love your white page ‘yang’.

Dorianne Laux, from “Savages
They are savage
for knowledge, for beauty and truth.
They crawl on their knees to find it. 

Jack Gilbert, from “The Sixth Meditation: Faces of God
We are animals haunted by love.

F R O M   L E T T E R S,   I N T E R V I E W S,   L E C T U R E S

Egon Schiele: I must see new things and investigate them. I want to taste dark water and see crackling trees and wild winds. 

Michelle Williams: I want to be like water. I want to slip through fingers but hold up a ship.

Dr. Airini: Don’t mistake storytelling for softness.

Cheryl Strayed: Write like a motherfucker.

Now that all current episodes of LoK are up on Nick’s site, I must implore fandom to watch things on Nick.com (or their partners’ sites) as much as you can. Now that Korra is exclusively digital, we as fans need to make sure that we’re doing everything we can to support that format. The episodes will have ads before, during, or after them, but in exchange for high quality episodes and financial support of a show that we love, I think that’s pretty fair.

If you are an international viewer, there are ways for you to work around region blocks. Hola Unblocker is an extension for Chrome, Firefox, and many other browsers that will let you bypass region blocks and view LoK on Nick’s site and though I personally have never used it, it has been demonstrated to work well by many users, 

All current LoK episodes are also available for purchase on Google Play and Amazon. Hulu+ users have access to the first three episodes as of this posting and will likely be getting more of them soon.

Please keep supporting Korra. New episodes will be coming out every Friday on Nick.com and affiliate sites. More information on how exactly this process works will hopefully come in the near future.
