Hey there! You can call me Michelle. I'm a 21 year old stressed out university student from Canada. I'm really into Dragon Age, Mass Effect and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood right now but you'll find the occasional posts on classical music, opera, food, and just stuff on the internet that makes me laugh. This blog is occasionally 18+. Enjoy!

and i was like “yes there is! it even sounds like a hymn!”
eVEN MY MUSIC TEACHER AND THE CONDUCTOR SAID I WAS WRONG
but i was completely 100 fucking percent right, now all these years later i know that the hymn is called “be still my soul” in english and it’s incredibly fucking famous
Sylveon, and finally
I don’t know what I expected.
