Goddess of the Day: May 4

Freya - Norse Goddess of Love and War.  Freya is the maiden mistress, and described as the most beautiful of all Goddesses. No male - mortal or God - can resist Her. She is invoked for happiness in love and familial relations, as well as sex and sensuality issues. As the Queen of the Valkyries, She gathers the souls of the dead and slain warriors and escorts them to the afterlife.  Freya is the mistress of cats, and is thought to have inspired all poetry.  Her sacred day is Friday, and Her number thirteen.

This is probably the most uncertain of the tattoos, and is what is left after a process of elimination. The patterns could be reminiscent of the halla he rescued to carry to the afterlife, or stylised skeletal patterns. Uncertain. “ - Holyshitdragonage


Very excited to finally reveal this! This is a 4-page comic I wrote some time ago called “Afterlife.” A few months ago I met Carolyn C. Nowak (caseyboots) (Lazy, Lumberjanes) at a Lumberjanes release party and we got to talking and it led to this commission. Carolyn is an absolute pleasure to work with and I’m so happy with how this turned out.

Oh god i hate this, i want Skye to be with Lincoln, Jiaying and the inhumans in general so that she can get a better handle on her powers (cause we know that even if she was able to control them a bit in the previous episode she still needs more training).

 But i also really, really  want her to be back in SHIELD training with May and watching Paranormal Activity with Fitz.

I wish she could like spend the weekend at Afterlife and during the week she would be badass at SHIELD.

Okay, so, that new Sneak Peek. As I suspected, the show is trying to make us believe Coulson and Skye are going to break up!

Also, Skye bringing up Bahrain to May in front of Coulson is pretty harsh, but May categorizes Gordon as dangerous for teleporting onto Gonazles’ ship, as Skye tries to explain that they’re just afraid of SHIELD.

Coulson also seems to be acting like he distrusts what the people in Afterlife actually are?  As though he perhaps believes them to be alien and not human? Hmm… Not liking that.  Hinting his stuff with the GH-325 might have shaped his views?

And Skye drops the I-word, Inhumans, and says it’s the name their ancestors used to call themselves, while Coulson is put off by Skye using “we” referring to her and them, and questioning why SHIELD should trust Lincoln.

bad sleeping schedule scenarios
  1. go to sleep at a normal time, wake up at 3am, feel tired by the time you actually have to get up
  2. go to sleep at 4am, wake up at the time you have to but feel tired
  3. don’t sleep at all, feel tired all day, fall asleep at 2pm and sleep until you wake up at 3am, at which point you are tired and hungry
  4. go to sleep at midnight, sleep for 12 hours, wake up feeling tired anyway
  5. die from tiredness, go to afterlife, you are permanently tired

roses, locket, statue, casket <3

roses: are you in love?

i know this one is probably supposed to be romantic but i’m too excited about how much i love my friends ok i have so much love for you guys!!! <3<3<3

locket: take a selfie.

omg why is it so big haha

statue: who is your favorite artist?

um this is difficult bc i like a lot of artists stuff but! i’m gonna go with this one guy whose name i cannot remember for the life of me, but he used to have a studio above a gallery my mom worked at and he did the coolest pieces that combined living things like moss and saplings with cds and bits of computer circuitry and it was all just so cool! he also made humanoid statues out of plants!

casket: do you believe in an afterlife?

not really? like i don’t have a specific one in mind and i wouldn’t be disappointed if there wasn’t, but i also wouldn’t be too surprised if i died and it turned out there was

♦Remains of the Day {-} Closed with filius-umbra-finis

♦The jingle-jingle and cracking of skeleton bones, the solemn, beautiful, melancholy songs of ghosts wailing their sorrows, the occasional cackling laughter of the folks around here. This was a regular occurrence at the land of the dead. And while the deceased Winifred Barnett would rather be back home, she eventually adapted to this new of living after her untimely death. Kicking the bucket of such youth and innocence was heartbreaking among the dead, and those newcomers were welcome with open arms. Winnie was almost starting to feel at home among her deceased companions.

Despite permanent death being a concept to be feared, the afterlife was not too bad… Sure she could only visit the island under special occasions with no ability to contact her loved ones, and yeah, there’s also the fact that whatever happens she’ll never return to her original homecountry again… The folks are kindly! Skeletons and ghosts and other spooky creatures mingled around, their raspy and echoing laughs and chatter ringing among the cool black and grey sky above the heads of the dead. Glasses of nightmare fuel clicked together, skeletons and ghosts taking deep gulps.

“Almost full moon, ay Winnie girl?” She heard the ragged whisper of one of her skeleton pals, a bony head jerked up to reveal a cream-colored sphere hanging lazily in the sky, steadily rising to join the world above. Despite low chances of getting out of here, she remained optimistic. Maybe this moon. Maybe.

A loud thud sounded far off, attracting practically everyone’s attention, including Winnie’s. Hollow eyes scanned far off for the source of the sound, where a white haze was gathering around a current area. Gasps, mutters, and whispers of confusion sounded all around her. Winnnie could catch few words such as ‘another living’ and ‘not turn out well’. Without a second thought, Winnie joined the few who decided to investigate.

realhitvz asked:

As requested, elaboration on religion placing non-life above life. Since most religions say that the afterlife is more important then life (on the grounds that it is eternal) it justifies things like suicide bombings. Sure people die in those but since the ones who lived in keeping with the perpetrators religions beliefs are assumed to go to heaven this can look acceptable to extremists. It is regularly used to justify dangerous actions and thus I think it dangerous in itself.

That may be true in something like Islam, but certainly not Christianity!

Take the Parable of the Sheep & Goats.

31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne.32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

“Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

“They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

“He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

“Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.

The idea behind this is that we are judged in the next life by what we do in this one. Certainly a suicide bomber cannot justify a bombing using the Christian doctrine! Jesus said Himself: what we do to others on earth is also what we do to Jesus Himself.It is a dangerous idea indeed, but certainly you cannot say that is true in Christianity!
