#love from afar

Quote
I love you. I have loved you this whole time. Through it all, for everything you are, my love is unshaken
even though these recent paths you have wanted to explore have begun to untangle our fingers, and were not meant for me to tread, 
I will learn, 
and I will know how to love you, from a little further away.

How about this for a prompt... Sihtric or Finan is watching their unrequited love interest from afar. Angsty can’t be with them for some reason.
Tumblr media
Finan doesn't remember wanting anything more than her.
He's drawn to the fire in her heart like a moth to a flame. He cannot help but look for her in crowds, in rooms... on the battlefield. Her beauty has blinded him to all other women. He could tell her the truth, how his heart beats for her and only her. Finan has not loved another in so long, and this time he knows he's done for. There will never be another woman for him...
Too bad Sigrid does not want him the way he does her.
It does not take him long to realize he's in love with her. Sigrid's friendship has become an awakening for him. He had been hollow for so long, the slave ship had beat him down and took away his identity, but the moment he saw Sigrid for the first time in Winchester he knew that he survived those horrors for a reason. She was his God-given purpose, even if God would keep her constantly at arms reach.
So many men seemed to want her, and she would turn them all down.
The idea of the same thing happening to Finan was painful to think about. He wanted to give her all he had, to bring the world to its knees just to prove he might be even the slightest bit worthy of her love and affection. Whatever it took to be hers, he'd do it, but every time he almost had the courage to tell her the truth he would find a reason to back down.
He would hope her friendship would be enough... but he wasn't too certain it could be.
There was a time... once. He almost told her the truth, but the words got caught on his tongue. They had been drinking at the alehouse in Winchester after doing a favor for King Alfred. Sihtric and Clapa had abandoned them early, Clapa wanting his bed and Sihtric infatuated with a whore who probably desired his silver more than his cock. That left Finan alone with Sigrid, and at some point, at the night the drunk Shieldmaiden told Finan:
"Hey, let's get out of here."
So he followed her outside the walls of Winchester to a river too far from the city where they both sat by the waters to cool themselves off, laying drunkenly on the grass as they stared at the stars.
"Finan?"
Finan glanced at Sigrid, his eyes more glued to her than the sky above, "Yeah?"
"What's Ireland like?" She asked him, her eyes still on the stars.
"A rare beauty," His words more true for the Dane at his side than his homeland, "Torn apart by hate, but she thrives."
"Do you ever wish to go home?" Sigrid looks his way, and Finan cannot help to stare into her icey eyes.
They are more beautiful than any star above.
Finan shakes his head no, "I am home... why would I wish to be anywhere else?"
Sigrid chuckles, and then looks up again, "Sometimes I wish I could be elsewhere... I feel trapped by my path," He can see her try to shrink herself, as if something has made her anxious, "Uhtred's service has been an honor... but some days I feel-"
"Shackled?"
"Yes," She agrees, turning her whole body to the side to look at him, "I am free to do as I wish, but yet chosen to tie myself down," She sighs, staring into the grass, "What if this is not where I am meant to be? There's a whole world out there I could explore but I am here."
"Perhaps you are here for a reason?" Finan tells her as he turns to fully face her, "This is your path for a reason, is it not?"
"Maybe the Gods were wrong..." Sigrid's lip twitches as she looks back up at him, "Loki wishes to taunt me and confuse me."
"Confuse you how?"
Sigrid takes a moment to think of her words, her eyes glancing away before she looks Finan in the eye again, "Some days I feel I know what I want and other... I do not anymore."
"And what is it you want, Sigrid?" Finan's voice asks her softly, and his question gets a deeply shaken break out of Sigrid. They stare at each other for a long time, and he's convinced he's caught her staring at his lips but then Sigrid roll over onto her back again.
"I don't know," Sigrid whispers, her head turned partially away from Finan, "I just know... I feel caged. I want to be free."
This is it. His moment. He could tell her right now how he feels and promise to do whatever it takes to make her happy but he freezes... because to him, these promises are all the things she doesn't want. Finan knows how Sigrid feels about marriage... and the last thing he wants to do is make her feel more trapped than she already feels.
So he rolls back over and says, "You must do what your heart desires, Sigrid," He cannot look at her; because it's too hard now to pretend like he doesn't want to devour every inch of her, so he keeps his eyes on the sky, "If I could make ya feel free, I would."
"I know, Finan," Her voice calls back, so quiet he almost misses what she says, "That's why you're my dearest friend."
It's the word friend that breaks him, but he won't let her see him hurting.
Finan takes a deep breath to compose himself, and then sits up, "I think the ale really did a number on us tonight."
"We sound like children," Sigrid jokes, and Finan laughs to keep up happy appearances, "I think it is time to find our beds."
Finan gets to his feet and then helps Sigrid rise, doing his best to smile, "Tell no one of this?"
"Let people know Finan the Agile is soft?" Sigrid raises a brow and smirks, "I would never."
Finan snorts, shoving her playfully as they head back to the city walls. This wait is painful, but one day he will find the words. One day he will show her the truth, but for now... her friendship will be enough.
It has to be.

To the million butterflies you freed
To the laughter and tears shared
To the emotions through words, weaved
To the past wounds that we still bleed
To you - a treasure I’ll keep
My love for you planted deep
So deep, I see you even in my sleep
With every sunrise, hope seeps
That two souls in this lifetime will meet
In the middle of a street 
Or under mid summer’s heat
 Know that to you my heart beats
//Reaching until reached//

Jaufré, the trouser mezzo has valid advice perhaps you should listen
Tumblr media

Tumblr media
“I ASKED YOU TO BE MY WINGMAN NOT TO REVEAL MY MOST INNER FEELINGS TO HER”
Tumblr media
“YOU ARE THE WORST WINGMAN OF ALL TIME”
Tumblr media

The only thing missing is her hand on mine
Her touch
Her soft voice that calms me
The chatter in the background
The voice that reminds me of why I fell in love with her.

I can feel your soft kisses
Right next to my ear
So close and yet so far
You do not know me
Nor do I know you
And yet you give me
Comfort, safety, hope
Like a sweet melody
In the symphony of the present

On this day a year ago, I didn't even knew you even exist. That you where out there breathing, laughing. And I know for sure you don't even have any idea that I was here.
Now that we know about each others existence, we could not do anything about. It's comforting and breaking, to just know we both exist. How could we be so close, even if we're miles apart. How could home be a place I've never been. How could I miss you this much even if I haven't seen you. How could I love the way you say my name, when you haven't whispered it into my ears.
Tell me is it even possible to love someone you haven't met? Cause I don't know what this is.

L’amour de loin (Helsinki, 2004): Reactions, Part I
Today, we hit a milestone: my FIFTIETH new-to-me opera so far in 2021!
(Note: this was originally going to be the Met 2016 production, but this has English subs.)
Tumblr media
this looks and sounds cool
Tumblr media
GERALD FINLEY LADS (also this kinda sounds like the orchestra when it off-the-cuff warms up before a show)
Tumblr media
and you have learned to make me happy just by singing
Tumblr media
seriously the LOOK
Tumblr media
he just has such a great stage personality I love him
Tumblr media
l’amour de loin indeed
Tumblr media
sir, Build-A-Girl is not a real store
Tumblr media
reality check
Tumblr media
every opera can be made better with two things: a trouser role and a glowy boat
Tumblr media
“hey I have the perfect girl for you”
Tumblr media
“hold up I need my AURA of MYSTERY”
Tumblr media
seriously this is cool
Tumblr media
it sounds like being in a forest with birds and a stream
Tumblr media
and on the other side of the sea/stage... (and yes, there is actual water onstage)
Tumblr media
this duet is very intriguing
Tumblr media
she wants out
Tumblr media
the Pilgrim has the tea
Tumblr media
if you are in an opera, do NOT get involved with a troubadour
Tumblr media
when you talk about yourself in the third person
Tumblr media
“THIS DUDE HAS NEVER EVEN MET ME WTF IS THIS”
Tumblr media
and how do you think that’s gonna go
Tumblr media
alright then
Tumblr media
shiny!!!
Tumblr media
Dawn Upshaw is just lovely
Tumblr media
honey are you okay
Tumblr media
such an intriguing score!

Seeing someone you invisioned yourself with happy with another is a feeling if it’s own
It’s a kind of reformed and humble jealously that seethes into my chilled heart
I find myself in a lul of neither love or hate just expected disappointment; an unspoken rejection
Words unsaid led to closed doors and the murder of chances before they started
It leaves me unsatisfied, with myself and fate’s mocking actions
A locked door with only a window on the side of the disappointed soul
I saw visions flash by me from a train window of mere possibilities and what could be in some distant reality
Would I rather be aware of what I can never hold
Would I rather imagine the beauty of a love I’m so distant from
Would I rather know my dreams are the closest I’ll ever get to you
Or would I rather never have loved you from afar

About showing them your support...
Showing your significant other your love, care and support are key to keeping your relationship healthy and loving. All three of these, specially the supporting part plays a big part in the long distance relationship. Since we might not be physically there to help the other when they need it, we can always do our best to show them we care and support them through the distance.
During the school year, while they're at work, or if they're taking up a summer project, they're gonna need our support. Be it encouraging words, or actively helping them in some way, what's important is that you show them you are there for them during their ups and downs. Sometimes just listening to their frustrations is enough to make them feel cared for and hence making them feel better.
This support comes both ways, that's how you get to be present in each other's growth and current activities. Cause the physical distance does not mean you are alone.
-Kimiko (君子)
