('betrayal'

My dear, when I tell you about hope,
I want you to imagine
the sweat dropping off Hajra’s skin
as she insistently runs for water
in the midst of the desert.

I want you to feel
the pain and the strength
of a father like Ibrahim
when he looked into his son’s eyes
as a sacrifice to God;

Feel the betrayal in Yusuf’s heart
when his own flesh and blood
tossed him away like garbage
and the thick darkness inside a whale
where Yunus resided, alone.

I want you to picture the wide sea
in front of your feet
as Musa fled from the pharaoh
and how terrified Asiyah must’ve been
as she resisted her violent husband.

Scream, as Bilal’s bones get crushed
while his mouth uttered the shahada
and wonder how Rasulullah
could still continue his path
as blood was flowing down his head
and soiled meat was thrown at him.

And maybe then
when you see it all, feel it all, imagine it all,
you would learn that
thirst didn’t win over Hajra and Ismael,
and Ismael wasn’t slayed.
Neither did Yusuf end up unsuccessful
and Yunus forgotten.
Musa and his people still crossed the sea,
Bilal saved out of nowhere
and Muhammad’s mission is blooming
like never before -

because my dear
hope means not seeing an escape yourself,
but knowing that Allah
always does.
—  “O you who believe! be patient and excel in patience and remain steadfast, and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, that you may be successful.” (3:200)
  • me, when i first got fire emblem fates:oh man im so pumped, this story is gonna be awesome and ughhh i cant wait for the heartache and the betrayal and amazing plot twists!!
  • me, after playing through fire emblem fates:hurr durr daddy anankos, nohr bad, hoshido gud, corrin perfect, hurr durr

My main positive takeaway from all those Colin interviews was how adamant he was about how Hook’s potential feelings of hurt and betrayal over Emma’s secret would stem entirely from the fact that he just wants her to trust him enough to share that burden with him and his desire for them to handle everything as partners because he knows that’s how both characters function at their best

Do you happen to have any writing prompts about revolution? Thanks <33

  • “it is not enough to conquer; one must know how to seduce.”
  • revolution for the sake of hunger, to devour the world. to ruin it? for revenge?
  • “i’m the antagonist in my own story, scoffing at the plot and singing off key. sometimes i kill the hero just to keep it interesting.”
  • “only the devil can eat the devil out.”
  • a revolution that is wrong, that sours and festers, that rots not just the king but the people, the leaders, itself.
  • “i love him as only a betrayer could / selfishly and without question”
  • eve peeked beyond the trees of eden and saw a gorgeous world she was denied; adam snored in his sleep and scoffed at her daydreams; god never even spoke to her; but satan whispered sweet nothings, promised more of that world beyond the trees, let her tastebuds explode.
  • “i am proud, i am an egomaniac of a being; i do love attention; i want glory; i want to be wanted by god and the devil. i want, i want, i want, i want.”

Housekeeping note: I am not interested in shading Grant’s relationship. I am not interested in shading his choice of girlfriend. I am not interested in when she’s in town to see him, or when he is out of town to see her. I am not interested in what she posts on IG. I am not interested in talking about her at all unless she suddenly becomes a character on the show and therefore relevant to my interests.

Grant has been dating someone other than Candice for the entirety of the series and that has not affected their wonderful on-screen chemistry. If Grant having a new girlfriend is affecting your enjoyment of WA, I honestly do not know what to tell you. We have too many wonderful things coming up on the show to be anything but excited, IMO.

Please do not come to me to rant about him having his girlfriend around as if that is some sort of betrayal, it is not. Candice and Grant are friends. Nothing more, nothing less. Let’s enjoy that friendship and enjoy the romance stuff between their characters.

I love getting asks and talking to y'all, but some of you need to please take a step back and chill when it comes to Grant’s personal relationships.

chaoslaborantin  asked:

Do you think Mare keeping the branding scar is a good thing? Mare admired Cal for keeping scars when he didn't need to. And I get her point about remembering the pain Maven and his betrayal continue to inflict on her. But does she really need the scar for this? It's like a very literal metaphor for Mare not letting her emotional wounds heal, either, which is, in my opinion, the topic of "Glass Sword", and it's not a good thing for Mare's soul.

We’ll see!

“I thought you said there’d be alcohol.” + Drarry :)

[send me a line and an hp ship!]


Draco shows up to Blaise’s Christmas party without a single drop of firewhiskey in his system. Which was a mistake, he realizes, when he sees who the rest of the guest list comprises of.

“The Weasleys?” He hisses at Blaise, who’s busy smiling winningly at Molly over the hor d'oeuvres. “I know you’re seeing the smallest one but I hadn’t realized you’d completely lost your damn mind.”

“Relax.” Blaise says, then shoots a sideways glance at Draco. “Are you sober?”

I thought you said there’d be alcohol. Didn’t make the necessary preparations, it seems.” Draco glares, mutinous at the sheer utter betrayal that Zabini seems to think of as a mere afterthought. He watches Granger wipe something from Weasley’s cheek and grimaces at - ugh, domesticity.

“Honestly. Champagne? Whiskey? I’ll even go for pasta with vodka sauce right now. Anything, Zabini.”

“Loosen up, Malfoy. It’s the holidays.” And then Zabini swans off to find the reason for Draco’s predicament right now. Ginny Weasley is laughing uproariously at something Potter is saying, and she draws Blaise into the conversation with ease. Potter grins, comfortable.

Fucking hell.

Draco doesn’t know when, where, or how this mess of a situation came about - one moment everything had been neatly in place, and then Blaise was suddenly dating Ginny Weasley, his mother had made amends with his aunt, and Potter’s bisexuality had been splashed all over the Daily Prophet. All in a span of two weeks.

Merlin, he needs to get out of the manor more.

Draco picks at a cookie from one of the silver stands, keeps him occupied from the small talk he’s grown to hate. There are little red and green sprinkles winking back up at him, one on top of the other and he thinks it’s an ironic reminder of the Zabini’s ball room right now.

“Malfoy.”

Harry Potter stands in front of him, dress robes cut nicely to frame his jawline and hair still (always, for Merlin’s sake) a mess. His glasses are still that ratty tatty old frame and Draco fights back the small urge to nitpick, and the greater urge to fix them so they rest straight on Potter’s nose.

“What, Potter? Ran out of better people to talk to?”

His snark doesn’t get under Potter’s skin like it used to, but then again, his voice isn’t quite as sharp as it was before the War. Draco narrows his eyes at Potter’s flushed cheeks, bright eyes - obviously, he’d been smart enough to bring his own beverage.

Potter swirls his goblet a couple of times, then fixes him with eyes so brilliant Draco feels his pulse speed up, even after all this time. “No - just thought you might want to talk.”

Draco blinks rapidly. “Talk- about what, Potter?”

There’s something flickering in the man’s gaze, but Draco can’t put his finger on it - it’s making him antsy, anxious, makes him need an answer. “What?” He repeats again.

“I’m not sure.” Potter moves closer, takes a couple steps more and for one wild moment Draco thinks they’ll touch. But before their bodies collide, Potter sidesteps him and continues walking past. It’s infuriating and his skin practically itches from the question left hanging in the air, but Potter doesn’t seem to be wanting to stay for much longer.

“Oh, and by the way,” Potter says, glancing over his shoulder, “Your robes. That blue really brings out your eyes.”

Potter smiles, and it’s blindingly white even in the nicely lit room. Draco feels heat rush to his cheeks and when he tries to stammer out a retort, nothing turns up on his tongue. He watches Potter’s figure cut through the crowd, kiss Weasley’s sister and Granger on the cheek before apparating out of sight.

He’s in desperate need of a straight answer, and Potter, and just - more. More of what, he’s unsure of, but more, all the same.

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

This is a rewrite of the events that happened post season two, starting right after the assault on Mount Weather. It’s season three as I would have liked to have seen it and as it should have been. There will be a lot of focus on the Grounder culture and their attempts to coexist with Skaikru - or lack thereof. We will get to see the ruthlessness and the burning feud between Lexa and Nia, and the softness that Lexa reserves only for Clarke. Expect drama, lust, violence, betrayal, action, war, and of course lots and lots of Clexa fluff/smut. This is the season three that we deserved to see, and hopefully it will help everyone who is reading to forget about the one we got - even just for a little while.

I’ll be updating every Friday, so be sure to check back! Find me on twitter @LexAlexAU and let me know what you think. Questions, comments, concerns are always welcome.
