Standard scouting legion issued Christmas sweaters that are compulsory to wear otherwise the rule-breaker’s punishment will be to clean the entire compound for an entire month. 

Rule was implemented by and sweater designed by our favourite corporal.

The entire legion dread the season because of this but Erwin has no qualms about wearing it and seems to be quite proud of it, if you ask me. (he obviously thought it was a rad idea since he passed the rule)

Happy Christmas! \(^∀^)メ(^∀^)ノ

Merry Christmas Xena Style: A Solstice Carol 

 And from that day on, we’ve honored and celebrated it. It’s a time of rebirth for our wishes and our dreams. A time of coming together in joy and peace. It’s the shortest day of the year and the longest night. But on this special night a new light, a new chance, is born to us all. So it’s a time for miracles and goodwill towards all living creatures. That’s why the Winter’s Solstice means so much and touches us all so deeply.

you are stronger than you can ever know

everybody in this life’s got troubles
and yours are greater than most
but just know that the crying
does not make you weak

when you cry
you’re singing
singing the song of your pain
and though it is in a strange key
it is beautiful nonetheless

the echo of your sobs is not
the sound of you purging your demons
it is the sound
of you releasing your doves

cry - M.R.W.

i actually worry about the possibility of an emergency body shot situation though that wasn’t a joke. that’s why i keep my belly button clean

So, either by thy picture or my love,
Thyself away art resent still with me;
For thou not farther than my thoughts canst move,
And I am still with them and they with thee;

Così, per la tua immagine o per il mio amore,
anche se lontano sei sempre in me presente;
perché non puoi andare oltre i miei pensieri
e sempre io son con loro ed essi son con te;

- William Shakespeare, Sonetto 47, estratto
