Well well, hasn't today's Instastory installment yielded quite a bit of interesting information? ;)

Thanks to his little video we now know:

* that our dear Orlando is sleeping shirtless (or more? ;) Oh, I love the idea of him wearing a lot less while filming this video *giggles*)

* the exact way he sounds when he's happily groaning while stretching out on his pillow (of course only of interest from a purely academic point of view for us writers, right? It's pure research! We need to know which sounds we're trying to capture in our stories after all!)

* that he's wearing a clear retainer while sleeping, which in turn means he's either straightening his teeth (or working on keeping them straight) or he is prone to grinding his teeth while asleep... (particularly the latter would be quite a nice touch to incorporate a fic, wouldn't you say?)

Sometimes I really enjoy living in a time where "stars" post the most strange/entertaining/informative videos online. Back in those days before social media we never would have seen Orlando putting in his retainer... or in bed outside of a PR context... :D

(And when exactly has my timeline become a collection of Orlando-on-Instragram posts?!)

Right, folks... am I or am I not the only one who gets the feeling that our dear Orlando is using his Insta-Stories not to communicate with us, but to send messages to a certain somebody else?!

Let's just talk about his shared picture/video today, right?

So, first we have that adorable pic:

With the rather interesting caption... "kingly love"... ummmmm... yeah ;)

Followed by a nice short video showing... the sun?!

Again, interesting caption, slightly mysterious, seemingly a bit random, but yeah.

So, to explain things - I first saw this Insta-story while at uni, with my phone on silent mode. Imagine my surprise when I looked at it again a short time ago, suddenly hearing that there's a song playing in the background.

Curious girl that I am, I spent half an hour to find that damn song (I swear to god, I'm the WORST at hearing lyrics even remotely correctly, particularly if the sound quality is questionable at best ;D) - and I finally succeeded.
If you're as clueless as me, the song is "Know Me Well" by Roo Panes.

And the lyrics? Well, I'll let you be the judge of that yourself...

Well you know me with that ancient gaze
Stripping down with yesterday's eyes
You know me as I was you see me as I will be
And I still had a lot of growing
When you took me and you shaped me with those hands
You know me better than myself
Make me better than I am

Oh, you know me well
Know me well
Know me well
Oh, you know me well
Know me well
Know me well

When I think upon my past
I see I loved you many years before you came
In my hopes and my dreams
With the wax and the moon wanes
And you saw what I could be
Please teach me how to be what I was made to be
See without you I was nothing
But with you can be anything

Oh, you know me well
Know me well
Know me well
Oh, you know me well
Know me well
Know me well

What can I fear
When I know that I walk by your side
You're the fortress
Within which I got nothing to hide
None can take me
I'm the tower the world couldn't fell
'Cos I'm stronger
When I know that you know me well
Know me well
Know me well
Oh, you know me well
Know me well
Know me well

Again, I refer you to "kingly love"...
Interesting, isn't it? ;)

Okay, now it's your turn - hit me with what you think :) Am I imagining things? Or is this too much of a coincidence to be a... coincidence? ;)

Total Words Written: 112.121

I think I discovered the absolute disadvantage of not writing on a daily basis - I struggle to get back into the flow, it takes ages to type even a single sentence and I'm thoroughly pissed off with the words not coming as easily as when I had nothing else to do than living and breathing the story, my thoughts constantly plotting and planning inbetween writing sessions.

I struggled to get 1000 words written, and am really pissed off that it took me more than two hours to write that little - thus effectively cutting short/off the time I planned to spend on answering to your comments and reading your posts, before I need to go to bed (thankfully, tomorrow's the last early-morning lecture for this semester... at the very least I won't have to cut the things I've planned short because I need to go to bed from tomorrow onwards *grumbles*)

So yeah, another day I won't be replying to you lovely ladies out there *sighs* I'm sorry :(

I'll try to crave out some time to do just that tomorrow - depending on how well I'm doing with studying time-wise I might or might not add writing to my "to do" list, but trying to catch up on at least a part of the the comments and posts waiting for me is definitely on!

In the meantime - if anybody of you uses Instagram - I can be found there as Amruniel (no shit, Sherlock...) - I'm not posting much, so I guess I won't be crowding your feed, but one of my goals for 2017 is taking pictures regularly (whatever that may mean -.-°°°), so if you're curious, feel free to stalk what I'm up to when I'm not around here ;) I'd love to see you there :)

So, this is where I have to say "see you tomorrow, my dears", I guess (and hope) :D
