Mermaids are real

I'm Taylor and I'm enjoying the journey.


I just want to talk about this scene and how it’s one of my all time favorite Lagertha moments. She didn’t need to come help Ragnar or Aslaug, but she did it because those were always her people and despite Ragnar’s betrayal, he is still the father of her son. She didn’t need to give Bjorn permission to stay with Ragar, but she does because she wants him to be happy and she sacrifices for him as he did for her. 

And here, she didn’t need to tell Aslaug that the debt was paid or that she needs to trust everything will be alright. She didn’t have to comfort Aslaug, but she does, and even embraces and gives her a strong pat to remind her that she needs to be strong too. Lagertha could have stayed away, she could have just nodded at Aslaug and left, but she is teaching her son that there are more important things than anger and not letting go. She is a warrior in both mind and spirit and that’s why I love her so much.

I love being horribly straightforward. I love sending reckless text messages and telling people I love them and telling people they are absolutely magical humans and I cannot believe they really exist. I love saying, “Kiss me harder,” and “You’re a good person,” and, “You brighten my day.” I live my life as straight-forward as possible.

Because one day, I might get hit by a bus.

Maybe it’s weird. Maybe it’s scary. Maybe it seems downright impossible to just be—to just let people know you want them, need them, feel like, in this very moment, you will die if you do not see them, hold them, touch them in some way whether it’s your feet on their thighs on the couch or your tongue in their mouth or your heart in their hands.

But there is nothing more beautiful than being desperate.

And there is nothing more risky than pretending not to care.

We are young and we are human and we are beautiful and we are not as in control as we think we are. We never know who needs us back. We never know the magic that can arise between ourselves and other humans.

We never know when the bus is coming.”
