the beauty of monotony

It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and everlasting beauty of monotony.
- Benjamin Britten

If you do not reblog this, you are in fact lying.

Hey, don’t you fucking scroll down

You

Liar. 

Two kinds of people in this world. The people that admit to mourning the death of a fictional character and the dirty fucking liars

I go into mourning for days. I never really come out of mourning. This is why all my clothes are black…

GAHHH THIS IS THE WORST. Especially when I actually can’t avoid reading some of it as I paste his chapters into a single document because that is a foreign concept to some people. Also after having to scan a picture of him and knowing what he looks like.

I’d watch the show just for this.
