sometimes the buildings where magic happens are just as magical
I’m positive that these are American and not European concert halls because they’re way too big to be European. But really, these are beautiful. I’d give anything to sing in any of these halls.
Jeremy Crane is NOT EVIL!!!!
He was a child who had powers he wasn’t able to control surrounded by people who didn’t understand and were not equipped to help him control said powers.
He was sent to live in an orphanage where he was beat for his “devilry” where he like any child is filled with…
Well there are plenty of other scared and lonely children that don’t end up killing their caretakers and then move on to terrorizing the countryside. To fully understand his behavior it is going to take more than “he’s just a sad orphan”
True, but most children do not have the power to kill their caretakers. Young children can be near-sociopathic. They are selfish and driven to satisfying their own desires without much cause for the effect it has on others. They need to be taught things like empathy and morality. They don’t fully understand that pulling a cat’s tail or pushing a child causes pain, and they do not grasp the moral implications of causing pain. A child who has been ostracised for all of his life and beaten for most of it is going to understand even less.
When Jeremy Crane first killed his caretakers, he was a toddler, 2-3 years old at most, and he set the fire by crying. He had no control over that. When he next killed the priest, it was because he was in the middle of being beaten, and his blood activated the golem. He had no way of knowing it would happen. And I think it is safe to imagine that he was hunted down like an animal when people discovered what happened to the priest considering they already thought he was possessed. Perhaps he wished for the death of the priest, but what 8-10 year old would not wish for the death of a man who starved and beat him, especially during the beating? And when the golem arrived and stopped his pain, would that experience not completely colour his world view? The golem saved him. The golem stopped the pain and made him feel less alone. The golem protected him when no one else would.
Plenty of scared and lonely children don’t end up killing their caretakers and terrorising the countryside, but I expect many would if they had the ability. I’m not saying his actions were good, but they are understandable.
NO SERIOUSLY I WAS LIED TO HIMYM IS NOT A COMEDY I WANT MY HEART BACK I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS.
It is terrifying to think that one day you will trust somebody enough to let them see you naked. You will undress and remind them that you’ve stretch marks and birth marks and scars from having chicken pox when you were little and scars from all of the other things now. You will blush thousands of shades of red, painting yourself as a rose losing its petals. And that person - that person will take it all in. And I wonder if they will reassure you. But mostly, I wonder if they will even see anything worth reassuring you about. I hope they see each freckle on your back as if it’s a star and you are the whole universe to them.
