oh my gosH thank you so so much !! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
phew idk why but it scares me so much to dm people or reply to posts here and on twt like it’s not that serious but what if it was ya kno
What is wrong with me I keep seeing things and getting weirdly emotional for no reason-
this just in: ILU ARCHIE :-D!!!!!!!!!
they ask me why i learn languages and study history, and i say:
there was a man, five hundred years ago, in a place i have never been, who died. he was catholic. and there was another man, five hundred years ago, in a place i have never been, who was his friend. he was protestant.
i do not know their names. it was not written ‘here lived such-and-such and so-and-so, and they worked at these trades and lived in these houses.’ but i know this: that they were friends, and that they loved one another. so well that in defiance of the ruling that separated the graves of their confessions - in defiance of the authorities, the priests, possibly even their god - they insisted upon being buried together, so that they might, in death, be as good, close friends as they were in life.
i know nothing about these men, really. we have ever so very little in common: they were old german men with strong religious convictions and i am a young non-binary brit with strong tendencies towards atheism. our societies are so unlike as to be entirely alien to one another. but they loved their friends, as i love mine, and they wanted so greatly to be with their friends, as i do mine, and they cared - so much that this is how they are passed down in records.
this love binds us. i know them through it. it is the chain of our hands, pressed palm to palm over the span of centuries, because i know that love and therefore know the lover, and the beloved. i press my hand to them on the one side and place all my affection in my other hand and reach it blindly into the future. i imagine another person centuries from now and somewhere else altogether entwining their fingers with mine and curving their palm around my love in turn.
i hope they can still feel its warmth.
