Let’s play a game of “Is that Trickster!Gabriel or a Character in Alias?” I know which won out for me. XD (x) (x)

Once upon a time, there was an author named Sir Terry Pratchett.

He was a crotchety old British man, the kind with an enormous white beard and wire-rimmed glasses and a very large hat. Looking at him, you might be forgiven for thinking he looked rather like a twenty-first century Santa Claus; he certainly had that twinkle in his eye, that peculiar and unquenchable spirit that you associate with, in the midst of a world that is so often dark and cold and unamusing, something very bright and mischievous and good.

He was, presumably, not always so. There must have been a time when he was not so crotchety, or not so old, or not so bright. There must have been, even, a time when he was not an author.

But the story begins: Once upon a time there was an author named Sir Terry Pratchett. And so it does not matter, really, that the story was not always true.

All that matters is that the story gets told.

“So this happened this spring, but it’s still pretty vividly stuck in my mind. I volunteer for this NGO and we plant new forests. So one spring morning I was heading to the volunteer pick-up point. It was EARLY and very, very cold.  If you’ve ever done something like this you know planting can only  happen in early spring or late autumn, so I was dressed for the weather winch must have been 3 or 4 layers of clothes, at least one of which very poufy. Because you know VERY COLD, all day in a field, that kind of thing. And as you’d imagine not my best clothes because mud and grime and inevitable grass stains - basically the farthest thing from sexy you can imagine. I was waiting at a light on the basically deserted street at 6 am on a weekend. At the light there were two guys on this small bike/scooter, and it started out innocently enough - they asked for directions to the station - which I gave. Then they started saying some inappropriate things about what they would do to me - I was shocked. It went from thing to another so fast it almost gave me whiplash - the light turned green for me and I was almost afraid to cross because they felt really threatening - what if they would follow me or try to run me over, because they were also inching their bike closer to the crossing. I just made it out as fast I as I possibly could, but honestly I’d never felt so unsafe crossing a street before.”

Is it normal for pisces to be revengeful? I think i did some shit with a pisces girl and i think she isn't done with it.. First supersweet and now damn cold as ice with a dark glance in her eyes.

Whatever you did must have been very bad because Pisces generally let this stuff go after a relationship ended… You better watch yourself punk

mrsariayoureakiller asked:

Imagine how stressed Anne would have felt while she was pregnant,cont.

2/2 The child she was carrying was product of her and Aramis’s love and knowing she had miscarried before and might do so again,not to mention the risk of stillbirth or herself dying.

The article with Alexandra Dowling [x] confirms what Anne’s mental state must have been like during the pregnancy and after. I have had a lot of questions about why Anne in particular was so very cold towards Aramis in the first 3 episodes. I had speculated that it was because of the stress of the pregnancy, the fear of being caught, etc. and now AD has pretty much confirmed it, which is great.

I feel her behaviour in the first 3 eps could have been written a little better, especially since by the time we reach Emilie, her flirting with Aramis is in stark contrast to her behaviour up until then. I assume its in part because they are away from court and for the most part, prying eyes, so it was easier to “loosen up”.

So basically, Sebastian KNOWS that Ciel has had a asthma crisis since the night before. He has got some information from the doctor. He knows that Ciel had a bad respiration and a high fever. Even if she had slightly declined at the morning. 

It’s still visible that Ciel has a (high) fever but Sebastian is literally “okay we are get out in the cold of winter when you are sick!”

In the same time, few second were enough to Agni for KNOW that Ciel MUST ABSOLUTELY NOT get out outside 1) Because of a very visible fever 2) because of the cough 3) and also Agni has had need of few seconds for know what Ciel had: asthma crisis, and he has seen it just with Ciel’s respiration.”

And few minutes later….Sebastian sees that…

So

Sebastian: Okay My lord, we’re going outside in the cold!! When you have been sick the night before!!

Agni: No Lord Ciel, you must return in bed please!!

Conclusion: Without Agni, Ciel would have been much more sick!!!

So...Sebastian was 100% useless this time.

- Went to the clinic yesterday and they were like “well, you basically licked this cold/sinus infection on your own, so it’s a bit late for antibiotics” so I guess I’m proud of my body? They did give me a Flonase prescription so that will be interesting. I was impressed with them; it was crowded as everyone in the whole city has this flu/cold thing, but we were only there for an hour total and the nurse and nurse practitioner who worked with me were very friendly despite how tired they must have been. I was also, as always, unimpressed with some of the other patients, who were complaining loudly, talking on their cell phones in the small waiting room, etc. Like, get over yourself. You are not the only person who needs medical care in the world. And again: less than an hour from check-in to discharge on a Friday late afternoon in flu season!

“Why, Mia, I was just thinking of you!”

“If I must say so, you did a splendid job in court the other day! The prosecutor broke out into such a cold sweat, it reminded me of my younger days where I vigorously fought against enemies of similar tenacious nature, and reduced them to such a state thereafter!”

“A-although now that I think it, I wouldn’t mind having a younger, erm…state of my own. Sweat can spread to very uncomfortable places, you know…”

Oh! that my young life were a lasting dream!
My spirit not awakening, till the beam
Of an Eternity should bring the morrow.
Yes! tho’ that long dream were of hopeless sorrow,
’Twere better than the cold reality
Of waking life, to him whose heart must be,
And hath been still, upon the lovely earth,
A chaos of deep passion, from his birth.
But should it be—that dream eternally
Continuing—as dreams have been to me
In my young boyhood—should it thus be given,
’Twere folly still to hope for higher Heaven.
For I have revell’d when the sun was bright
I’ the summer sky, in dreams of living light,
And loveliness,—have left my very heart
In climes of mine imagining, apart
From mine own home, with beings that have been
Of mine own thought—what more could I have seen?
’Twas once—and only once—and the wild hour
From my remembrance shall not pass—some power
Or spell had bound me—’twas the chilly wind
Came o’er me in the night, and left behind
Its image on my spirit—or the moon
Shone on my slumbers in her lofty noon
Too coldly—or the stars—howe’er it was
That dream was as that night-wind—let it pass.

I have been happy, tho’ [but] in a dream.
I have been happy—and I love the theme:
Dreams! in their vivid colouring of life
As in that fleeting, shadowy, misty strife
Of semblance with reality which brings
To the delirious eye, more lovely things
Of Paradise and Love—and all our own!
Than young Hope in his sunniest hour hath known.

Poem of the day: March 15, 2015
Dreams // Edgar Allan Poe

theheadtheheartandthesoul asked:

No quote, just words from my heart. We are all connected. The only way to break darkness is to spread light. Hate has been taught so long that now love must be taught. People have made this world cold. Those who dream of peace have to warm it back up. It's all we have; Each other. We need to spread love and light and hope that those we touch will do the same, because this life IS a miracle. It's incredible. Just to breathe, laugh, sing... You're not alone. You're part of everything. 💛

wow, your words seem so powerful. you must have been very special and warm hearted person. i love your courage and the faith you are not willing to lose no matter what, it’s beautiful to see it. i also love the way you think about world. i do believe in miracles since the earth and life exist so i guess i have to believe in a better days too even thought it’s really demanding sometimes since everything seems to fall apart. anyway, thank you very much for this message it gives me a bit more hope.  

I’m kind of hoping that Rose originally came to earth as a cold, heartless leader on the front lines of the Earth invasion. A ton of things must have developed her into the empathetic, kind, very human gem she’s remembered as over the several years she spent on Earth. The Crystal Gems didn’t start the rebellion as soon as they got there, I’m assuming. So, there must have been something at some point that made Rose change.

It was dark, and it was cold that night. The shadows seemed to stretch across and snuff out every bit of light from existence, minus the small lantern, and the gentle glow of the sacred treasure that was to be protected. Though, even that didn’t bring him peace. Something felt—

Snap.

What was that? Was it the elder? That’s what he hopped for at least, but deep down, the boy had a sinking feeling in his stomach. He wasn’t alone and something was definitely watching him from within the dark. Whatever it was, zoomed past his right side in a blur. He gasped, and turned towards the direction of where he heard movement. There was nothing there. Zoom. Again, something went by so quickly that it put out the light of his lantern, and he could feel nothing but his stomach knot up anxiously.      

Footsteps. He could hear them approaching. Closer and closer they came until they came to a stop and—

Whack!

Link sat straight up in his bed with a gasp, beads of sweat alined on his forehead. He was breathing heavily and it took him a moment that what he was dreaming about was just a dream. What a relief.

“ ‘Bout time, boy! You sleep like a log! C’mon. Get up! You’ve been sleeping aaaall day!” An elderly woman had given him the wake up call. A rather abrupt one at that, but she didn’t care. She was in a bit of a rush, and she didn’t like being kept waiting. “I got something important for you to do. And you got to be on your toes!” She poked him in the stomach with her feathered staff, forcing him to stand up straight.

“That’s better. Now look here, Link. I need you on guarding duty tonight. I have something urgent to attend to, and I hate to not be on guard duty, but I trust you know what to do, right?” This was rather big news for Link. He had helped the elderly woman around the Sealed Grounds and the Temple countless times, but to be given guard duty of the sacred treasure? Well, it was… A big responsibility. He didn’t think he’d ever be given such a big task, but he was determined to do his best, and he nodded his in response.

“That’s a good boy. Now here,” She gave him her staff. It was a very important artifact, that no one was ever really allowed to touch it. “It’s important you have that, and I’m sure you know what that staff can do. If you ever find yourself in trouble, use it. Oh! And don’t forget your sword. You never know if you might have to fight off any greedy thieves or whatnot.” Again, Link nodded and took the staff. He put his sword in it’s sheath, placing it on his back as well as his shield. Once that was done and over with, the two whacked out of the small hut and walked together to the Sealed Grounds. Or rather, what it use to be.

“Alright, Link. This is where we part ways. Take care of yourself. I’ll try to be back as soon as possible, but I trust you can handle yourself.” With that, she left, leaving Link to attend to his guard duties. 

As soon as he was alone, Link gazed at his surroundings. How empty and silent it was. He guessed he was going to be alone for the rest of the night as the sun was already setting. The village wasn’t too far off, and he would have a nice view of it from the altar of the sacred treasure. 

It was kind of strange how this ‘Triforce’ had a legend behind it. Some hero about a century ago had managed to forge it to defeat some great and powerful evil. It almost seemed unbelievable because the village didn’t seem like it was being threatened by any danger. There were a few with tainted hearts that tried to get a hold of the Triforce for themselves, but it wasn’t something the guardians couldn’t handle.  Though the legend had to be true. The Triforce was a gift from the goddesses and it was very important to take very good care of it. Link just hopped he could live up to elder woman’s expectations. He’ll do his best not to fail, and not let anyone get their greedy hands onto such a sacred treasure.

anonymous asked:

Hi there! Can I be shipped please? I'm an introvert, and so at first I can be veeeery shy and can seem almost cold (an old nickname of mine was the ice queen), but I'm a huge sweetheart when you get to know me! I'm very sensitive, though it's not easy to tell, and am careful of other people's feelings to a fault because I get guilty easily. I'm very much into music and the performing arts (triple threat in training!) and my sense of humor often isn't fully gotten since I speak very eloquently.

jimin - park jimin

For Park Jimin, It would be hard to approach you on your first meeting. You may not be aware of his presence but he must have been keeping you in his line of view for days before he decide to approach you and be friend. With your shy personality and cold appearance, it would be an obstacle for Park Jimin but that sweet cheesy cupcake would find his way.

He may planned out his approach to appear accidental or on purpose - with the reason of borrowing something from you. But if none of the approach works he would have no choice but to suck his guts in and approach your head to head with his wavering heart. Jimin would proceed with his ‘mission’ when you’re all alone, your lonely appearance would boost his confidence up a little before he take big stride to approach you.

“ May I sit here? “ he would ask politely when there’s an empty space beside you on the bench. Flashing you his smile that would hopefully be imprinted in your mind before he does his magic and let his charms envelope you.

About you being careful of other people’s feelings won’t be a problem being with Jimin because he needs it. He may break without you knowing so filtering the words that you use and the action that you show before relaying it in real life will definitely be a help towards Jimin unknowingly. 

Realizing how sensitive you are towards others might just prove to him that you’re someone who could trust before he could comfortably pour the feelings that have been bothering him.

While you being very sensitive won’t be a problem to Jimin to because he seems like the type who would be very sensitive towards others like you but sometimes his words and actions may slipped past without knowing - but he would immediately apologise if he feels and find that his actions or words may hurt the other person.

Even though his apologies may not be as extravagant like some guys to earn mend the heart of their other, his way would be very simple and persuasive. He may not be the guy that would go to an extent of stripping his pride in front of others to make you laugh, his would be as simple as annoying you till you forgive him (not in a negative way). He would tail you around with his adorable pouting face, struggling to cheer you up or he would run to your favourite food store to buy you your favourite meal there while you wander around the mall hoping that when Jimin leave you alone you would get a piece of mind. But before you could clear all your thoughts apart, he would come running to you with your favourite food packed in a carrier - dragging you to the nearest bench for you to eat.

♡ hope you like it ! Sorry to keep you waiting (*σ´Д`)σ ♡

Yes, we became very wakeful; so much so that our recumbent position began to grow wearisome, and by little and little found ourselves sitting up; the clothes well tucked around us, leaning against the head-board with our four knees drawn up close together, and our two noses bending over them, as if our knee-pans were warming-pans. We felt very nice and snug, the more so since it was so chilly out of doors; indeed out of bed-clothes too, seeing that there was no fire in the room.  The more so, I say, because truly to enjoy bodily warmth, some small part of you must be cold, for there is no quality in this world that is not what it is merely by contrast. Nothing exists in itself. If you flatter yourself that you are all over comfortable, and have been so a long time, then you cannot be said to be comfortable any more. But if, like Queequeg and me in the bed, the tip of your nose or the crown of your head be slightly chilled, why then, indeed, in the general conciousness you feel most delightly and unmistakably warm. For this reason, a sleeping apartment should never be furnished with a fire, which is one of the luxurious discomforts of the rich. For the height of this sort of deliciousness is to have nothing but the blanket between you an your snugness and the cold of the outer air. Then there you lie like the one warm spark in the heart of an arctic crystal.

River entered, to find the First Enchanter asleep at his desk; she needed an answer for the Knight-Commander, so she set his request down. He was sweating, looking very unhealthy-" First Enchanter?" She touched his shoulder.

   Cold yet burning- 
                               forgot forgot forgot- 
                                                                your fault your fault your FAULT

   A slight touch of the shoulder and he was awake. Groggily, he looked towards
who awoke him. When he saw her, it took all of the willpower he had to stop himself
from gasping. 
    “My apologies, child… I haven’t been getting good sleep lately.” His words were
shaky, reflecting his state of mind. “Must have dozed off. Is there something you need?”

Mind yer own ...

As suspected, my little ones recent melt downs have been happening because she has been brewing the most evil cough and cold. She point blank refused to wear her coat to nursery yesterday morning and I didn’t push it. She kept rolling her sleeves up, so it was obvious she was very warm. Found myself giving a fellow school run mum a bit of a tongue lashing, after she very loudly and repeatedly told her daughter I was a naughty mummy for not making little one wear a coat and that ALL children must wear a coat. And how it was still very chilly. I told her there was a reason that my child was not wearing a coat and maybe she should ask me why my child isn’t wearing a coat instead of judging me to be a ‘naughty mummy!’ She looked at me with a shocked expression, but didn’t ask what the reason was.
Had a mini ISP meeting at the school to have a discussion about little ones targets over the next 6 weeks. Also discussed her progress. She was a bit up and down yesterday afternoon. And then she was awake most of last night. She is a totally different child when she is unwell. She doesn’t seem to know if she is coming or going. Managed to get some baby nurofen down her - had to put it in her drink. Didn’t take her to nursery because of her being all over the gaff. And I didn’t push her to do too much today. She fell asleep pretty quick and once again, I won’t be far behind her. G’ night tumblrs #asd #autism #autistic #shattered #wornout #poorlybaby

AIM Global

I am officially an AIMer (Riyadh based).
I joined AIM Global not because of the money it promises to its hardworking sellers and networkers but because I BELIEVE IN ITS PRODUCTS. Their strategy is to get the best and most reliable supplements and put it in one collection thus giving it an amazing selling point.

I have personally tried C24/7 and I must say, being sickly and all, I am the best testimonial for my potential clients because since I tried it, I haven’t been sick, not at all. I am the type of person who gets hospitalized because of a simple flu for no known reason. Whatever I’ve experienced in the past started with flu (or simple colds) and thankfully, I haven’t had the flu for a quarter now, so nothing to start right?

I am very blessed because this product was introduced to me indirectly by my boss who passed it onto my desk because he wanted me to try it. It was a box of C24/7 given to him by my upline and voila, I have proven it to be effective and have been giving testimonials since.
