He stared up at the frowning statue of Zeus, mighty and proud, but the statue didn’t scare him anymore. It just made him feel sad.
“I know you can hear me,” Jason said to the statue.
The statue said nothing. Its painted eyes seemed to stare at him.
“I wish I could talk with you in person,” Jason continued, “but I understand you can’t do that. The Roman gods don’t like to interact with mortals so much, and—well, you’re the king. You’ve got to set an example.”
More silence. Jason had hoped for something—a bigger than usual rumble of thunder, a bright light, a smile. No, never mind. A smile would’ve been creepy.
“I remember some things,” he said. The more he talked, the less self-conscious he felt. “I remember that it’s hard being a son of Jupiter. Everyone is always looking at me to be a leader, but I always feel alone. I guess you feel the same way up on Olympus. The other gods challenge your decisions. Sometimes you’ve got to make hard choices, and the others criticize you. And you can’t come to my aid like other gods might. You’ve got to keep me at a distance so it doesn’t look like you’re playing favorites. I guess I just wanted to say …”
Jason took a deep breath. “I understand all that. It’s okay. I’m going to try to do my best. I’ll try to make you proud. But I could really use some guidance, Dad. If there’s anything you can do—help me so I can help my friends. I’m afraid I’ll get them killed. I don’t know how to protect them.”

HxH Fanfiction Recommendation

I just finished reading this tiny little jewel, and I thought it’d be a good idea to let you know about it!

This fanfiction, Children, by the awesome tiramisu-coffee, literally brought tears to my eyes. It is told from Kurapika’s nostalgic point of view as he re-visits and somehow longs for his past, his younger self, his childhood friends and their dreams. 

I’d recommend it to anyone who likes reading a well-written Kurapika, or a well-written HxH fanfiction in general!

Your destiel anniversary thank you post literally brought tears to my eyes. Because the fandom has been so down lately, and it's been such a struggle. So thank you for you kindness. It means everything.

Thank you, beautiful anon. <3 I just thought we could all use a little pick-me-up. :) 

When I talk about fitness and #Beachbody products 24/7, it’s not because I’m trying to sell you something. It’s because I believe 110% in their products and I KNOW first hand that they can change people’s lives. This is a message I received from a friend that I’ve been working with since around July. She works extremely hard and has the results to show for it!! This message literally brought tears to my eyes because I know everyone has the potential within them to turn their health around. All they gotta do is #PushPlay!! ❤️👏❤️

You are such a beautiful soul. The positive vibes and downright loveliness that you radiate beams from your heart through your glowing eyes and bright smile. I've never had any friends before but in some way you are like a friend to me, the way you choose to connect with everyone through social media. You are so gorgeous and genuine and down to Earth. You're a wonderful role model. Wishing you all the best Ariel, so much love to you X

You have literally brought tears to my eyes. I don’t know what to say besides thank you, thankyou, thankyou. You are my friend and a wonderful person. I adore you. X

I just watched an episode of Buffy the Vampire slayer, and I swear to gog, it made me cry.

This episode concerned Tara, a sweet, shy witch who also happens to be Willow’s girlfriend. Not to spoil anything, but the entire episode is about her family and how they “disapprove” of her and her relationship with magic.

I believe that the witchcraft is a eupherism for her sexuality, and the standoff at the end literally brought tears to my eyes.
She has to choose between her emotionally abusive family who have been deceiving her since she was born and manipulating her, and people that she cares about. And she is so terrified that her friends and girlfriend will hate her, and then they stand up for her and declare themselves her family and… it just made me so emotional.

"When I think of what you are… what you grew up with… It makes me so proud. It makes me love you more" - Willow, to Tara at the end of the episode.

I love this series so much and this has been a rant I am sorry.

Just got to sit down and really listen to MIW’s album stream.
I can’t believe how much they’ve changed. It literally brought tears to my eyes. I’ve never been so proud of a band, and I’ve never felt so much happiness with being on their street team and helping promote them. 

Guys, I’m telling you, if you love a band, figure out how you can get behind them. Help support them. You’ll never get a more happy feeling than knowing that you’re helping your idols.

I’m so fucking proud of those boys.

// Can i just say that I love that Aoba and Ren scene you voiced so much. Like it literally brought tears to my eyes. That was such a beautiful and sentimental scene. I really hope youll want to do more later.


"Thank you, as always…"

But no seriously, I appreciate it a lot.

To be honest, I did it primarily to try doing more lines as Ren (since I learned how to do the voice effect) , so I kind of half-assed my performance as Aoba, but I ended up liking it so much I posted it.

I wouldn’t know what other scenes to do, but I’ve had a few ideas lingering in my head… If you or anyone else have any suggestions, I might do them. I like getting ideas from others.
