Let me talk about this GIF:

But as he reached the ground and sprinted toward the dais, Lupin grabbed Harry around the chest, holding him back. 

"There's nothing you can do, Harry -"

"Get him, save him, he's only just gone through!"

"It's too late, Harry-"

"We can still reach him-"

Harry struggled hard and viciously, but Lupin would not let go...

"There's nothing you can do, Harry...nothing...He's gone."

So I was going through tumblr and I came across this GIF. It reminded me of how hard I cried in this scene because Harry had just lost Sirius. Watching the movie, I was very focused on Harry but in this GIF, I suddenly took a look at Remus and I thought, he's just lost Sirius, the only other surviving genuine friend he had. 

While Harry had only known Sirius for two years, Remus had lost his childhood friend after only having had him back for two years. It was probably bad enough that he thought he'd lost everyone back when Harry was just a baby. But a second time. Wow. That's just a punch in the gut. So now, when I look at this image, I see Remus holding on to the only thing he has left of his friends. Of all the things his friends left in the world, Harry was the most important one. So he held on to Harry. While, obviously, he was doing it to protect Harry, I think it was also in some way to keep his friends alive somehow. I think it's especially painful in the movie because of the moment when Sirius calls out to Harry: Nice one, James! as if it were just like old times. And MAYBE if that's how Sirius felt, Remus felt the same way too? A rush of adrenaline of it being like a midnight duel with the Slytherins in the Trophy Room or something. And then it was over. Sirius was gone and all he had left of all his friends was wrapped up in his arms trying to follow them through the veil. :(

I love you through sparks and shining dragons, I do.
And the symmetry in your Northern grin.

It's kind of funny the way things turned out between us.
I'm really glad I have you in my life.

I still love you. I hope you still love me too.

I'm kind of glad we didn't meet in the summer. I'm glad that we aren't two strangers jumping into things. But I'm scared too. Because this wasn't for me. Because you said "Mahal kita, wala nang iba." to someone else.

Maybe I'm just being irrational. Maybe I just want to worry unecessarily.

I dunno.

Something I wrote on 9/11. Not related to the incident at all, mind you. 

Sometimes he wonders why he does what he does to her. He isn't a dancer but even he knows that pulling away doesn't mean letting go. It means coming back to the center and staying there. But this isn't a dance. It's something far more important than any dance step could ever be. But he pulls back and lets go. He's so lost in thought that he doesn't notice her spin away. He doesn't realize that confidence and knowing what comes next isn't just for dancing. When he finally looks up, she's gone. He pauses another moment, then goes looking for her. He isn't done dancing and neither is she.

He's surprised to find her dancing to a pirated hymn with a boy in pirates' clothing. A pirated version of him. He cuts through their dance and looks at her with a smile. "Isabel," he says. "It's been a while."

I realize now that it's kinda malabo. But oh well, I like it anyway. 

School tomorrow. I don't want. :(

Why pamper life's complexities when the leather runs smooth on the passenger seat ?

I miss Lightning "Qoo" McQueen BAH.  I miss the Lilttle Theatre. I miss the Buffeteria. I miss BAH. I miss our corner. I miss seeing the huge globe of Mall of Asia. I miss Mark Carpio. I miss Melvir. I miss our squashed car rides with all the flashes in the evening. 

I don't want to go back to the reall world. I don't want to take the exams. I don't mind waking up at 4 in the morning. I don't mind squashing in the car. I don't mind running around CCP. I don't mind getting picked up late. I want to go back to the small world of chorale clinic. I want Note Reading Class with Melvir again. I want to not pay attention to sectional rehersals with Stewart and Cass and the rest of the sopranos (who listen) again. I want to I want to have to ugly-fy my voice to drive away the evil Arimaonga, Melvir style. I want to hear the rest of the Woodrose chorale fight over Melvir. I want to watch Mark Carpio smile at us when we get 'panaginip' right and when the tenors have their solo and when the basses go 'oooohhh' and the altos (with our frustrated tenors-at-heart alto 2s) and their pretty echoes.

Ina o, illalah. 

I wanted to make it last forever. 

Ituring mong kahapo'y waring panaginip lang.
