They send letters, of course, as frequently as the chaos on the warfront allows. Often Eggsy will send him parts of a song, on paper worn thin and ragged with mud and grime and blood.

It’s a new one Eggsy had begun before he left; it’s a wonder he’s still trying to finish. It has Harry balancing between the edge of soft, warm-hearted love and a deep, despairing gulf.

Harry traces each carefully inked note, the melody ringing loud and clear in his mind, but he won’t ever be able to bring himself to play the song on that dusty grand piano.

He has a horribly selfish wish. There may be hundreds and thousands of men out there dying for his country, but all he wants is for Eggsy come home to him: they’ll sit side by side at the piano as Eggsy walks him through the song, adding embellishments left and right while Harry reverently follows each stroke on the staff.

He won’t play this song, not until Eggsy does first.

(But Harry knows the story of this song, intimately, dearly; he doesn’t need to hear it to know how it will end.)

i love ginny to the moon and back, but i want ya’ll to know that its completely okay to cry if you’re sad, happy, feeling miserable or generally disappointed with life in general because that’s literally the most poisonous shit about jkr’s portrayal of ginny, that she rarely cried and harry liked that about her. i don’t want little girls and grown women to think that crying makes them inferior/unlikeable/weak. crying and mental or physical strength are literally mutually exclusive pls do not ever think that crying makes you weak because honestly it doesn’t

It’s World Turtle Day – a day that spotlights turtles and tortoises and how we can protect them. 

Kara Wall snapped this cute pic of two baby sea turtles snuggling at Dry Tortugas National Park in Florida. Five different types of sea turtles are found in the waters of south Florida, and the park is famous for the abundance of sea turtles that annually nest in the area. But remember, no matter how cute the turtles are, visitors are not allowed to disturb sea turtles or their nests. Photo from www.sharetheexperience.org.

:re chapter 30 - Hinami/Sasaki side

Hinami: (So… someone tell me… Is this person only a mere <vessel>?
Even if he’s empty.. even if he doesn’t remember me… The container for his soul is nowhere but here so I… will protect this person.
I won’t let him fight alone anymore.)

Hinami’s kagune looks very strong, 4 rinkaku. She cuts up Takizawa but he regenerates and then goes Owl mode.

Sasaki regains consciousness.

Sasaki: Ua… (This girl.. Protected… me?)

Kaneki’s voice: (Choose, choose)


Takizawa is beating Hinami while saying complete nonsense (kakuja(?) = crazy)

Hinami: (If I get defeated here, for what did I even leave Banjou-san and the rest?
Oniichan, I will protect you)

Sasaki’s eyes flutter open.

Sasaki: It’s okay already…
I’m not <the person you used to know>, so please… leave.
Even if my body is <Kaneki Ken>, I am Sasaki Haise, so…
Ah.. but… being looked out for like this… Kaneki-kun must have been..
Cerainly, a wonderful person, huh.

He walks towards Seidou, while both Saiko and Hinami beg him to stop.

Hinami: (This person… is not a <vessel>.)

Sasaki: ..It’s okay, even if I disappear.
So, give me the power to protect.

He mutters, looks up, and cracks his finger.

Hinami: (Even without memory… Sasaki Haise (This person) is Kaneki Ken (Onii-chan).)

spectralsleuth asked:

Hi, I was wonderig if there was any way you could help me find out the ages of all the dragon age characters? Or if not ALL of them, at least Hawke and his companions in Dragon age 2? I can't seem to find info on it anywhere!

Ah, this is a bit of a tough one because a fair few characters don’t have solid, canon dates of birth. I’ll share the ones I have definite sources on though. Links to sources are are on the ages or dates of birth, I’ll be providing the ages the characters are at the beginning of the events in the game or media they’re listed under. Some ages are approximate or lower estimates based off in-game dialogue and/or dev comments. I won’t be using the DA:O toolset ages as they were written before the characters were further developed and Alistair certainly isn’t 32 in that game.

If exact ages are unknown, and appropriate information is available, I’ll add things that might help you at least guess the ages (not everyone has information that lends itself to this, however). I’d like to give a big thanks to Valerie1972 for her WoT2 liveblog posts, they helped out a lot!
