the best rings are the ones that mean something. the silver on these rings rub off after time, and reveals the 18 karat gold ring beneath the silver.
the point of the ring is to show that the longer love lasts, the more powerful and beautiful it is.
“Grandpa Blaine, can I try on your ring?” little Timmy asked, tracing the wedding band on the elderly man’s finger.
He chuckled and rustled his youngest grandson’s thick black hair. “Sure, Timmy. Be really careful with it, though.”
“I will!” he promised.
Blaine slid the ring off his boney finger and placed it in the little boy’s cupped hands. Timmy admired it from all angles before slipping it onto his own ring finger. It was too big for him, but he didn’t seem to mind.
“It’s pretty,” he declared. “I like gold.”
“It wasn’t always gold,” Blaine revealed, leaning forward and lowering his voice to make it seem like he was passing on a big secret. Timmy’s eyes grew wide and he scrambled up onto the couch next to Blaine.
Really. When your Grandpa Kurt and I got them there was a silver layer on top.”
“What happened to them, then? Did you paint over it?”
Blaine chuckled. “No. Over time, the silver wore off, exposing the gold beneath. They’re symbolic.”
“What’s symbolic mean?” he inquired.
“It means the rings show something about love. The longer it lasts, the stronger it is. Silver is strong, you see, but gold is even stronger. And as time passed, my love for Kurt and Kurt’s love for me grew stronger too. Every day I wake up and love him more than I did the day previous.”
Timmy’s mouth formed a silent ‘o’ in awe. “That’s cool! I want that!”
“Yeah! The love you and Grandpa Kurt have!”
Blaine laughed and dragged Timmy into his lap. “Patience, sonny. You have to find the right person first. Then you can love and be loved.”
“And have the symbolic rings?” Timmy’s face lit up in excitement.
Blaine booped him on the nose. “And have the symbolic rings,” he agreed.
do you ever get like this random pain in your boob and it feels like heart attack or something
you know that “joke” your friend makes about you and the only problem is that it actually hits home and you sit there and realize that they were probably being serious in an indirect way and covering up their true thoughts by passing it off as a joke and then you just sit there feeling like shit for the entire day
when jesus said love thy neighbor i think he really meant don’t put a fucking password on your wifi

OK AT THIS POINT I AM CONVINCED THAT TRELAWNEY IS A 100% LEGIT SEER
you know what else
in greek mythology there was a seer named Cassandra who was given her powers by the god Apollo, and Apollo later cursed her so that nobody would believe any of her prophecies, which all turned out to be true, when she refused to sleep with him.
what’s trelawney’s great-grandmother’s name? CASSANDRA.
CAN WE ALL APPRECIATE TRELAWNEY RIGHT NOW
Can we all appreciate the detailed effort JK Rowling puts into her novels?
I would also like to point out that when she made the prediction at Christmas, Dumbledore “raised” his voice and was the first to die from that table
