do you believe in forever?

The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan

iamsokiaa:

  1. There are times when I doubt everything. When I regret everything you’ve taken from me, everything I’ve given on you, and the waste of all the time I’ve spent on us.
  2. The breeze kept blowing out the candles, but didn’t matter, because for the first time in our relationship, there were plenty of stars above us.
  3. What are you thinking?" It is always a act of desperation, and I keep on asking, even though I know it will never work the way I want it to.
  4. Someday you’ll ask me to give up something I really love, and then it’s going to get ugly.
  5. It was a mistake,” you said. But the cruel thing was, it felt like the mistake was mine, for trusting you.
  6. There has to be a moment at the beginning when you wonder whether you’re in love with the person or in love with the feeling of love itself.
  7. Those mornings when we kiss and surrender for an hour before we say a single word.
  8. I want the act to be a secret, even if the words can only hold themselves secret for too long.
  9. This is the difference between us: you desire what other people have, while I desire the things I used to have, or think I might have one day.
  10. Even if neither of us got what we wanted, we found freedom in the third choices.
  11. Even when I detach, I care. You can be separate from a thing and still care about it.
  12. And still, for all the jealousy, all the doubt, sometimes I will be struck with a kind of awe that we’re together. That someone like me could find someone like you - it renders me wordless.
  13. Something more than a boyfriend, something less than a spouse.
  14. And every degree of disappointment I’d feel for you - whether real or of my own invention - would make me disappear further and further, leaving the fake front to nod, to sip, to say, “Finish your drink, we’re leaving.”
  15. I was hurt. Of course I was hurt. But in perverse way, I was relieved that you were the one who made the mistake. It made me worry less about myself.
  16. The natural state. Our moods change. Our lives change. Our feelings for each other. Our bearings change. The song changes. The air changes. The temperature of the shower changes. Accept this. We must accept this.
  17. Does every “I love you" deserve an "I love you too”? Does every kiss deserve a kiss back? Does evry night deserve to be spent on a lover? If the answer to any these is “No,” what do we do?
  18. I guess I don’t believe in a small break. I feel a break is a break, and if it starts small, it only gets wider. So I said I wanted you to stay, even though nothing could stay the same.
  19. Every time I call you mine, I feel like I’m forcing it, as if I’m saying it can make it so. As if I’m reminding you, and reminding the universe: mine. As if that one word from me could have that kind of power.
  20. The doubts. You had to save me from my constant doubts. That deep-seeded feeling that I wasn’t good enough for anything.
  21. But there was something about you that made me think of sparks and motion.
  22. What a strange phrase - not seeing other people. As if it’s been constructed to be a lie. We see each other people all the time. The question is what we do about it.
  23. I want you to be the one who loves me. I want you to be the one who loves you.
  24. Things rarely get fixed the way they need to be.
  25. Sometimes it becomes a contest: Which is more stubborn, the love or the two arguing people caught within it?
  26. That’s the dilemma, isn’t it? When you’re single, there’s the sadness and joy of only me. And when you’re paired, there’s the sadness and joy of only you.
  27. Sometimes I love it when we just lie on our backs, gaze off, stay still.
  28. I don’t want to be the strong one, but I don’t want to be a weak one, either. Why does it feel like it’s always one or the other? When we embrace, one of us is always holding the other a little tighter.
  29. As if you know the waiting is the hardest part for me.
  30. The mistake is thinking there can be an antidote to the uncertainty.
  31. It wasn’t a thought, more a feeling, like I couldn’t breathe and knew I had to get some air.
  32. As long as we conjure, who needs anything else? As long as we can agree on the magical lie and be happy, what more is there to ask?

The saddest word
in the whole wide world
is the word almost.


He was almost in love.
She was almost good for him.
He almost stopped her.
She almost waited.
He almost lived.
They almost made it.

Anonymous: It really saddens me thinking about Gravity Falls ending- on one hand, I respect Hirsch's decisions and it's his show, he can do what he wants. On the other hand, I think the world he's created is so rich with mysteries, character, and thought that there's so many creative possibilities and many other possible story lines relating to the main plot that can keep the show going without feeling forced or stretched. It could just be me in denial that the show's possibly ending soon. I don't know

Nah, don’t worry. It won’t end soon. If the episodes keep being released more slowly and we have another year’s long hiatus between S2 and the possible S3 (depends on whether or not Hirsch wants to make a movie rather than a third season), then I’ll estimate GF to end in about… maybe 2018?

 That’s a very rough estimate, but that’s with assuming that each season plus the hiatuses between them take about two years each.

 Even when it does end, the story will end well. There’s no way, with the superb writing that we’ve seen so far, that the series will end without satisfactory closure. And besides, that’s one of the charms of GF:

It’s not an endless Summer; it has a beginning (S1), middle (S2), and end (S3/movie). And it makes sense, too, given that Hirsch said the end of the Summer coincides with Dipper and Mabel’s birthday.

 When you think about it, GF is actually a bildungsroman. A bildungsroman is typically a novel about “the growing up or “coming of age” of a sensitive person who goes in search of answers to life’s questions with the expectation that these will result from gaining experience of the world.”. - Wikipedia

 Does that not describe Dipper (and Mabel, to an extent) to a ‘T’? Their birthday being at the end of the Summer is no accident. That’s when they’ll turn 13; technically a teen. Gravity Falls is about growing up. It’s about the characters and how they change for the better.

 Dipper will change from an insecure, reckless young boy into a more confident, careful teen. Mabel will change from an insecure (Irrational Treasure plot), unsure young girl into a teenager that knows herself and is confident in her bizarre silliness. Even Stan will change; in the beginning, he was more selfish and stubborn, but now that the twins are in his life he’s becoming more loving and selfless.

 And that’s the beauty of GF’s plot; it’s centered around how people change for the better. GF’s plot ends at the end of the Summer because, in reality, that’s the end of the twins’ childhood and that’s the end of their ‘coming-of-age’.

 This is gonna sound way too corny and philosophical for a cartoon, but think about it this way: watching a series is like watching a life unfold. You see it be born, you’re with it as it grows, and you are sad when it dies. Because, like a friend or a family member, it’s become a part of you and you don’t want it to leave.

 But think about how happy it made you when you were watching it unfold. It touched you in a way, and it that aspect, it lives forever.

 That’s why, when shows literally draw on forever, they begin to lose their value in our hearts (god this post is getting cheesy as hell - forgive me). It’s something perpetual; something that will always be there, thus, we don’t see it/appreciate the way we used to.

 GF will not draw on forever because, like they say, “All good things must come to an end.”. But it’s not good to worry about it ending. I’ll bring back the life metaphor: yeah, it sucks that we (and shows/games/stories) come to an end and die, but the point of it is to enjoy it while we’re/it’s here.

 tl;dr: GF is a great show and, even though it’s saddens us that it’ll end, we need to enjoy it while it’s still going on and not worry about it ending.

Dont be sad that it ended, be glad that it happened
