Dating Kristoff? He's got a reindeer, a good sense of self... He's got it all.

Too beautifully human for a pedestal of high expectations (please read my comments if you've read this piece)

And if you think you have fallen to the lowest place in the galaxy,
Look down and realize that the emptiness is halted by my shoulders,
For I will carry you as long as you need, supporting you from afar.

You know I'm no Atlas, as I've realized you're no god.
But you stand firm  enough to keep on without me,
And if my grip fails, I think you'd thrust out a strengthened hand to catch me.
Dmoral, I guess this one's for you. I hope I haven't been too presumptuous.
Note: I used the word "god" as a mythological metaphor to illustrate the magnitude of my awe, not as a direct comparison.

    That's really true, to be honest. I've always viewed Dmoral as a sort of celebrity!
    Also, I MISSED YOU! You always brought a smile to my face. And holy moly you have a lot of followers, congrats! All of them well earned, I might add :)

    AH SHOOT NOW I KNOW WHY PEOPLE WERE CONFUSED. SORRY!!!! I used to be like in so much awe of Dmoral that I viewed her as super untouchable like she were better than all of us if that makes sense? So like she was on a pedestal. But now I see her as more approachable and human. I'm gonna change the title.

    so the title is a tad misleading and i thought i unknowingly did something........but after realizing the piece i think i understand what you're trying to say.?. and, thank-you i think? i may be too sleep-deprived and that's why i'm having trouble understanding this. i do love the support the line "For I will carry you as long as you need, supporting you from afar" exemplifies

    re: so when i said that if i moved to outer spaceee
    no one would ever have to see my faceee
    i didn't count on literally the entire rocket being a mirror
    and so it's made everything so much clearer (pun unintended)
    that i might just have tooooo

    smash the rocket
    grab a bucket
    fill it up with space fooddd
    grant myself the gift of flight
    return to earth at the speed of light
    and destroy any reflective surface that exists
    (i'll reach each and every one, i have sixteen different lists)
    then become a hermit,
    totally worth it
    living in a cave...
    and no one
    will ever
    have to see
    my FACE

    re: and here in outer space it's getting a bit weird
    and every surface in the rocket is reflective
    i'll just make myself a space cake (triple-tiered)
    and try and think up an appropriate adjectiveeee
    (for how much i don't like my faceeeee)

    re: omg thanks for the squirrels
    um *cough*
    soooo i realised i look pretty ugly holding self-confidence
    so i threw it through a windoww
    and it catapulted me onto someone's fence
    and i think i might have broken my noseeeee
    and now a squirrel's chewing my face
    this isn't going very welllll
    maybe if i move to outer space
    no one
    will have
    to see
    my FACE

    For the people who are concerned: I apparently misrepresented the situation oops. There is no fight or anything between Dmoral and me! I just wanted to write something nice for her. Sorry for any misunderstandings!

    Or rather, I’m confused. Did something happen while I was gone?
