Love is watching someone die by Cassandra JP.
I’m always so cheerful in the mornings! This isn’t a specific scene from anything; I was listening to the Death Cab song What Sarah Said:
And I rationed my breaths as I said to myself that I’d already taken too much today/As each descending peak on the LCD took you a little farther away from me /But I’m thinking of what Sarah said/ that “Love is watching someone die” /So who’s going to watch you die?
and I started pestering Cassandra so … this is Simon, Tessa and Magnus and it’s just a meditation on being immortal in a world full of mortals. Eventually your love comes down to watching someone die…
*Art by Cassandra JP, breaking hearts for years and years!
Hopefully the 6pm surprise will cheer everyone up, but in the meantime wallow in the beautiful sadness.
