The red string of fate, is an East Asian belief originating from Chinese legend and is also used in Japanese legend. According to this myth, the gods tie an invisible red string around the fingers of those that are destined to meet each other in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. According to Chinese legend, the deity in charge of “the red thread” is believed to be Yuè Xià Lǎo (月下老, often abbreviated to “Yuèlǎo” [月老]), the old lunar matchmaker god who is also in charge of marriages.
The two people connected by the red thread are destined lovers, regardless of time, place, or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break. This myth is similar to the Western concept of soulmates or a twin flame.
But I don’t want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin. Aldous Huxley, Brave New World (via observando)
Fighting!! Ah, you’re the best. Beyond Rough Edges is coming back after I post either chapter 4 or 5 of Peril. *gasps* But my next update of Peril will be two chapters instead of one. My updating schedule was completely messed up with this week because I went to a concert in a different state on tuesday and got back friday night. So no updates, which means you guys probably hate me. But I’m trying to not be such a bore me when it comes to peril because I know Beyond Rough Edges is really slow and bit boring. Have a lovely day!
I never knew how true and realistic and non-exaggerated this episode was until I went to college.
