delladilly do you ever see someone in some quiet intimate moment and suddenly love them so desperately you feel like you're dying air in Us es mrrrl I love seeing grown humans setting about little creative tasks out of boredom and then looking quietly pleased with themselves like maybe a middle-aged woman on her train home from work manages to make a tower out of empty coffee creamers and gazes at it proudly for a few seconds I love seeing other people make the overblown OOPS I FORGOT SOMETHING performance for no-one that most of us do when we have to turn around in the middle of the pavement I love seeing stony-faced people in queues unable to contain a smile when a baby looking over its mother's shoulder in front of them locks eyes and does that astonished stare brittajj26 when someone is standing in line and they don't quite dance to the music playing but you can SEE their head bop and them mouthing the words when someone thinks no one's paying attention and they sing-talk themselves thru a task when they laugh or try to hide a laugh when looking at their phone elodieunderglass when someone does the thing where they enter another space such as a supermarket aisle striding with total purpose then suddenly forget what they're doinglooking for and stop there looking blank for a millisecond while they reboot - when people are looking for scissors in their home or in a store and they make the scissors gesture with their non-dominant hand as an aid to remind them what they're doing when automatic social interactions glitch like when you tell a waiter that you hope he enjoys his food too or tell the stranger on the phone that you love them - the hand gesture people make when they're thinking at their computer not typing and their elbow rests on the table and they feel the edge of their fingernail with their thumb This is such a lovely little gesture and to my knowledge I have never seen it in fiction You'd think it would come up all the time in fic - when you're sharing an experience with a complete stranger like watching a seagull throw up in public or waiting for a late train and you make eye contact and some comment to each other and then you guys are like ALLIES now Like you would willingly ride to war to save them You can't make eye contact again but you are very aware of them baffling and complex inner - just evidence of other people's rich lives happylilprompts This I want to see more of this in writing They're such giving details I love it quietnighty evidence of other people's rich baffling and complex inner lives is exactly my very favorite thing to see in writing and media thanks @elodieunderglass and @happylilprompts Why does realism in storytelling tend to focus on details of pain fear or horror and so rarely on these sorts of moments which are just as universal and real When did realistic become synonymous with awful dark and the abominable gritty? <p>These little things throughout the day via rwholesomememes <a href=httpsifttt2LXDYuR>httpsifttt2LXDYuR<a><p> Meme
