When Oscar Wilde wrote “There seemed to be something tragic in a friendship so coloured by romance.” He meant James and Oliver friendship/relationship, I mean when Oliver saw those bruise marks on James he was like 'I wanted to give Richard ten bruises for every one he’d put on James, and when James showed up at his house unannounced he called Meredith to say' I had no idea he was coming, but I can’t just leave him here. I don’t think New York is going to happen' and when James broke his nose, the first thing Oliver said was 'I want to forgive you' and threw a harmless paperback book at his knee to get even, and when James was crazy drunk and reciting Shakespeare in madness, Oliver said reassuringly 'You can tell me. Even if it’s bad, even if it’s really bad. We’ll find a way to fix it ', and when James confessed to killing Richard, Oliver only comforted him by saying '“It’s okay," ... "It'll be okay" ' and when Colborne came to arrest James, Oliver took the blame and went to jail, and when James asked 'Why?' Oliver answered 'You know why'.

People in Dark Academia.
The ones who stay up late at night to finish their favourite books, fingers tracing the lines as they whisper the words. The ones who strut the hallways with their head high as if the world was buring behind them. The ones who write in the dark, tears rolling down their cheeks because oh, they feel too much.

i want to grow old with someone in the way that we'll dance in the kitchen together even though our bones will hurt from it later and in the way that we'll know each other's favorite scents and in the way that we'll miss when we were young but we'll know that we have a part of that still in each other

A friend sent me a book to read the other day; Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto. I’ve been meaning to read this one for years and years, but I am finding that right now is exactly the perfect time.

Cambridge is a city full of winding, narrow, cobbled roads, and medieval pathways streaming with ghosts.

When Oscar Wilde said, "I am tired of myself tonight, I should like to be someone else" and when Sylvia Plath said, "I wish I knew what to do with my life, what to do with my heart" and when Rilke said, "this heavy humanness"
