Lifehouse, 'Blind' DL
Completely aside from the fact that anything written by manic_intent is automatically my happy place, this FFXII AU Basch/Balthier fic (warning: spoilers) made me incredibly happy. I love AUs, I adore FFXII, and I would worship manic_intent's writing only it deserves even more than that. ♥
the actual lyrics:
I am so sorry they are so emo! I do not mean to be emo! But it's such a soothing song ♥
I was young but I wasn't naive
I watched helpless as you turned around to leave
And still I have the pain I have to carry
A past so deep that even you could not bury if you tried
After all this time
I never thought we'd be here
Never thought we'd be here
When my love for you was blind
But I couldn't make you see it
Couldn't make you see it
That I loved you more than you'll ever know
A part of me died when I let you go
The funny thing is, I feel that this part of the song, at least, has distinctly Basch-Ashe undertones.
I wish this song was happier! My version of Love is Blind usually is more along the Garfunkel lines:
I Only Have Eyes For You
My love must be a kind of blind love. I can't see anyone but you.
Are the stars out tonight? I don't know if it's cloudy or bright. I only have eyes for you, dear.
The moon may be high, but I can't see a thing in the sky. Cause I only have eyes for you.
I don't know if we're in a garden or on a crowded avenue.
You are here, so am I. Maybe millions of people go by.
But they all disappear from view and I only have eyes for you. </center>
OhmyGod you guys. HAVE I TOLD YOU LATELY THAT I LOVE YOU.
Also, night-before last's meeting with mildlyinsane, risax and julineci was THE WOW. ♥ As Omi says: when we're together, a group mind forms. ♥
AND TO EVERYBODY: THANK YOU YOU GUYS. ♥ I wake up tomorrow morning and SCAN MY THANKS IN LOVE. ♥
Next up, also: Asch and Luke explain the court process. I haven't had this much fun since I made Yuuri and Wolfram explain defamation. :D
