The Warden's Death

Nathaniel came just in time. The ogre was about to crush her when he sent an arrow straight through its heart. The ogre fell on to a rock and remained still.

"Nathaniel", she whispered, reaching out for him.

He rushed to her side and held her in his arms. "Why did you do that? Did you think that leaving a note would suffice? The whole castle was worried! And look what you did to yourself! I need to get you back into the castle immediately, get you some healing magic."

"No, Nathaniel. This is it. This is the calling. This is my end."

"That is not true, there should be 30 years... 30 years after the joining to---", her finger on his lips stopped him from speaking.

"I've... wanted this to happen. I've... waited for this to happen. My life has... ended 3 years ago after... Alistair's death. Now I would be... able to see him again", she is choking on her own blood now, and Nathaniel felt the blood gush from her leg. She was bleeding everywhere. He looked around, hoping for a sign of a mage or a bottle of healing potion--anyone, anything who can heal her, but there was nothing. He sat there helpless, his love in his arms. There is nothing he can do now.

He touched her face lovingly. "I...thank you, thank you for sparing me and helping me redeem my family's name." Tears were welling up in his eyes. He hesitated and finally spoke: "I love you."

She smiled at him. "Thank you...for being a very... dear friend, Nathaniel." With difficulty, she moved her hand to touch his face. Nathaniel pressed her hand firmly against his face and savored the warmth emanating from it. He saw her eyes close and her hand felt heavy, but he kept it on his skin. He leaned over, his whole body trembling as he kissed her. "Goodbye, Marri."

...but Wynne says otherwise.

I agree with her, not because it is the rational choice. I would like to believe that someday, we will be together. I do not care how long it takes or how treacherous the path may be. If this is the only way that will bring me back to your arms, then so be it.

Saw this at work today:

“Self-pity is easily the most destructive of the nonpharmaceutical narcotics; it is addictive, gives momentary pleasure and separates the victim from reality.”
-John W. Gardner

Does "self" include your alter-ego who is supposedly mad at you for killing her one true love?

The Warden stood on the edge of the castle bridge overlooking Ostagar. It seemed as if it was only yesterday when she met him there for the first time. She remembered seeing him talking with a mage who did not seem too happy with his presence. He was a templar after all, so even his attempts at humor did not work on the mage. His memories have always brought a smile to her face, but reality swooped down on her and it felt like a knife stabbing her heart. She leaned on the brick wall and felt herself slide down. She suddenly felt someone put their arms on her shoulders. She looked up to see a pair of friendly green eyes.

"Wynne", she said.

She buried her face into Wynne's shoulders, tears streaming down her face. "It hurts. It still hurts so much, even after all these years".

Wynne held her close. It has been three years since Alistair's death, and she has just received Leliana's message about the Warden's dwindling condition. She has decided to travel back to Denerim to accompany their friend. The nightmares have become more frequent, and the servants have reported the Warden waking up in the middle of the night crying, calling for her beloved.

Wynne stroke her friend's hair. It will be over soon, child. I promise.

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed
Sing like a bird
Dizzy in my head
Spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold
Buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Oh, you make me smile

Yes, Mon... still. :)

I spent the whole Wednesday hanging out with Laura and Chris. So, while they were together strolling, kissing, having petty arguments, and cuddling, I can't help but think: "I want someone to stroll, have petty arguments, and cuddle with too!" LOL (notice how I left kissing out).

Truth is, I really miss the feeling of liking a guy (fangirl-ing over BB and Danlabs does not count, k?). There was a set of elevators in Windcave which looks very similar to that of Mount Samat's, which of course made me remember that particular event that happened on February 10, 2001. I was actually thinking of Mon the whole time we're on the road. My diary hasn't been updated in 2 years, and the last entry was nothing more than a quick note about Bleykidoodliekins. My heart hasn't done a wild somersault in years. Maybe that's why it has now turned into stone. :(

Anywayyy, it was a super fun day and I'm really happy for the both of them. Sana ako din, pero hindi muna ngayon Lord, di pa ako ready. Crush lang muna ngayon ang wish ko. ;)

So I say a little prayer
And hope my dreams will take me there
Where the skies are blue
To see you once again, my love

Overseas from coast to coast

To find the place I love the most
Where the fields are green
To see you once again, my love

Which reminds me.. How come I still don't have a poster/life-size cardboard cutout of Benlabs?

Fool again

I have been feeling sick ever since I got a couple of teeth filled. I think it's the numbing medication. :/ I felt so dizzy on the night of my dentist appointment that I had to leave really early during my externship shift. Everything got worse after the extraction of my wisdom teeth. I was sick for about a week, and I went to our externship lunch feeling all woozy and shivering. I had to take some antibiotics and tons of Ibuprofen to get myself out of the bed. I am SO happy to be feeling well again. I can't wait to enjoy the rest of the summer. :)

I'm definitely not looking forward to the next semester. I can't believe I'm going to be a senior student soon! I think we're going to get those "Senior Student" badges to wear with our scrubs. Yay badges! lol

Psych's 5th season opened 3 weeks ago and no one told me? What is wrong with this world? :o

I will start the marathon tomorrow. I miss my Lassie love. ♥

The universe

"Ma, if we have a lot of money and I can take any major I want without worrying about employment opportunities, I will be taking astrophysics".

after watching a few Stephen Hawking vids...

"Ma, I'm sticking to nursing".

Updates and acknowledgements

I left this blog with an entry which gave an impression that I was hurt. Truth is, I was a little sad, but I got over it in like a day or two. He is a good guy and he deserves to get whatever (or whoever) he wants.

Anyway, moving on to school stuff...

The last semester did not end as well as I would have wanted and it took me days to recover from it. On the positive side, I managed to achieve my goal and I will FINALLY be a senior this Fall. Can you believe it? Now I know this is late, but I would like to acknowledge the following for helping me get through the last semester.
  • Mon ♥ for not breaking my heart :)
  • Colbie Caillat for the songs I listened to while driving
  • The Script also for the songs I listened to while driving
  • Nutella sandwich for keeping me awake and happy XD
  • Ben Barnes for all his gorgeousness ;)
  • Lee Min Ho also for his gorgeousness :D
  • the first Glee album for the songs that kept me sane
  • Silvestri for our NCLEX reviewer
  • the publisher of the Cat Naps calendar
(do I even need to state a reason?)
  • Post for Honey Bunches of Oats and General Mills for Cheerios (for the late-night snacks)
  • Sue Sylvester for Vogue ;)
  • the nurses who told me that "I can do it"
  • the patients who wished me luck and blessings on my career (I always get teary-eyed whenever they say such things :} )
  • friends who were there to listen
  • that person who gave me encouragement at times when I need it the most
and lastly,
  • to mom, for waking up at 4 or 5 in the morning to prepare my lunch and staying up until 11 in the evening just to wait for me to come home, and dad, for working to provide food on the table and for giving me his Salonpas and Vicks to help alleviate my shoulder pain XD
I thank God for the last semester. I hope His guidance would help me get through nursing school.

  • I saw someone who looks A LOT like Mon this morning...except that he's blond. I was screaming "Iz Monmon! Iz Monmon!" inside my head. lol
  • I'm almost halfway through my nursing externship. It is FUUUUUUUUUUUN!!! My nurse preceptor is super amazing. She went through engineering school (my second choice of career) before becoming an RN. How cool is that.
Well I think that's it. It's 2 am and I still have to go to a meeting tomorrow. Hope to post another entry soon! Vavush!

I had the cutest strangest dream ever.

I was under some sort of a witness protection program and was transported into my temporary home where I've been living in the last few months. I went inside with several strangers and some guy I like know. There was a picture of Ben Barnes in his Prince Caspian costume pasted on a huge corkboard, and there were 6 FRAMED pictures of Mon hanging on the walls. It was a pretty small room so Mon's pictures were practically filling up all the available wall space. Then the guy I know stared at one of Mon's pictures, looked at me, and said "I am going to make you forget him".

When I woke up, my first thought was:

Dude, if Ben Barnes can't do it, you can't.
