«Some believe it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. It is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? Perhaps because I am afraid, and he gives me courage.»

I already loved you.

TITLE: I already loved you.


AUTHOR: Pretty Dead Girl 

ORIGINAL IMAGINE: Imagine Loki is planning to confess his love for you on Valentine’s Day, with orchids and a poem he himself wrote. Someone from the Avengers (who has a problem with Loki being in their team now) catches him in preparation and mocks him, saying “Oh, a monster in love, nice.” This gives Loki a pause as he is reminded of his heritage and his past deeds. He throws away the flowers and the poem, telling himself he is a deluded fool to think you’d ever reciprocate his love….Cont.


NOTES/WARNINGS: I loved this imagine so I did this for fun. It isn’t the best, but maybe someone will write one better. ;) Hope you enjoy. (I so wanted to make this smut, but I held back, lmfao) 

It was Valentine’s Day and although Loki had never celebrated the Midgard custom he was all too eager to use this day to confess his love for you. Since the day you arrived he had felt a strong pull towards you. He had been pleased when you had been nice to him, even forming a close friendship. He couldn’t remember a time when someone treated him with such kindness and genuinity. He realized some time ago he wanted to claim you as his own, but his own self-doubts got in the way but he had decided today, Valentine’s Day, he would finally admit his feelings for you.

A morality based on slavish obedience, to laws or to gods, makes pliant dogs of able men. True morality springs forth from dark wells deep within, comes flashing down from atop the high mountain - it cannot be passed from hand to hand or mouth to ear; it must be lived, breathed, dwelled within, until its essence suffuses the being entire. True morality is the living truth, expressed in word and deed. The moral man does not obey, he acts; for he himself is that living truth.


“God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it?”

— Friedrich Nietzsche,

The Gay Science, Section 125, tr. Walter Kaufmann

Whoever sought forgiveness for believing men and believing women, Allah writes a good deed for him for every believing man and woman.

Ironically, squinting was essential 'til the providential glasses (after the sequential eye test and preferential choosing of frames) made an exponential increase in vision and decrease in consequential squinting. In fact, I feel quite reverential of the Doc, who has great credentials, made evidential in the framed certificates stating his accomplished deeds, if not his potential on differential ocular experientials.

“Law Abiding Citizen” oh okay I bet this will be like Peacecraft, doing a pacifist run in a violent game like GTA what fun.


this may be the greatest thing ever


He had seen it in his Dreams. Caladbolg reforged, regrown. The broken sword it had become had been restored and it glowed with the light of the Pale Mother. He didn’t understand what it meant. Was he chosen once more? 

He reached out and touched the hilt, awakening with the sword in his hands. He didn’t ask questions, he didn’t even wonder why. It was his time once again to take up the mantle of protector of the Grove. 

Even though Trahearne had perished, his new statue overlooked the Grove to remind those of how great you could become with a single deed. Caladbolg Orchida shone and butterflies swirled around the blade as he held it ready, looking through the boughs of his Mother and seeing the unrest approaching the Grove. 

He had to fight. But not alone this time. This time his two brothers were by his side.

Finally someone who does not think "ahhh Blue Diamond is so sad :( I bet she is good and will become a crystal gem! :)"

like, i get that people want that cause they like her but i honestly don’t think shes capable of doing so. it’s not like Peridot, where she was unaware of the whole picture and after learning it decided to go against what she used to believe in. no, Blue knows excatly what she’s a part of, and she doesnt show any remorse for it. i don’t think one deed of ‘kindness’ (she did it out of pure pity and also you could argue she didn’t even do it for Greg, but for Pink Diamond) could dismiss all she had done previously.

anonymous asked:

I'm not sure if you made a post on this already but I was wondering why none of the assassins sent after Gaara didn't use poison? The only reason I could think of is if at an early age, as apart of his training, he had built up an immunity to what they had available? What do you think?

WONDERFUL QUESTION! I’ve often pondered this myself, and I actually consider it to be a huge plot hole, especially because SUNA USES POISON QUITE FREQUENTLY. 

I don’t have a definite answer for you, but I could see some ways that Gaara would either avoid being poisoned, or how that form of assassination would be a terrible idea.

Firstly, I believe that Gaara is at least 10 steps above what you and I would consider a picky eater, which doesn’t leave a huge window of opportunity for the deed to be done. I think that it would be especially difficult for someone to poison Gaara through food because I could see his younger self being extremely particular about what it is that he’s eating; because of this, I would imagine Gaara would serve his own food to himself, even if someone else made the meal. This means that the assassin wouldn’t be able to poison Gaara without him noticing. Plus, because it does seem like Gaara lives with his siblings, the person doing the tampering would run the risk of potentially killing Temari and Kankuro too.  

Following this idea, I don’t know if poison would really be that effective of a way to kill Gaara, considering that it would have to be a perfect dosage, and because Gaara grew up training in an environment that dealt heavily with poison. I’m not sure if it’s a matter of him being immune to the common poisons of the sand village, rather than a risk that he would know how to obtain, or even make, a few antidotes; especially because his Uncle was technically a medical-nin. It also depends on what type of poison it is. If the dosage isn’t strong enough, Gaara would most likely fall ill, and be transported to the hospital where the staff would then have to be informed of the plot, which would run them the risk of Gaara murdering all of them, as he would be keen enough to keep his eyes and ears open for any foul play.

I also imagine that poisoning would be a really slow, uncontrolled death, and it would make it more difficult for the shinobi to seal Shukaku back into his tea pot. Unless someone is going to guard Gaara the entire time, waiting for him to die, but then it would really be obvious about what had happened, and Gaara would probably do everything in his power to raise hell in his final moments, something that I doubt anyone wants.

Another bonus idea is that perhaps his mother’s will would also guard against him ingesting anything dangerous. I don’t see why it would be limited to just being punched/cut, but I don’t think that we really know the full extent of the powers. I actually have begun to wonder if the shield is effective when he’s asleep. 

Thanks for the question! 

Examine Your Heart.

Ibn Qayyim also quoted Ibn Tamiyyiah as saying:

“If you do not find any sweetness and relaxation in your heart from a [good] deed, then you should suspect your heart. Verily, Allâh is grateful.

That is, He must reward the doer of the deed for his deed in this world by a sweetness he finds in his heart, a stronger feeling of relaxation and a joy in his eyes.

If the person does not find these things, it means that something has entered upon his deed [and made it not correct and purely for Allâh’s sake.”

See Ibn Qayyim, Madârij, Vol. 2, P. 68

Ibn Maajah (4245) narrated from Thawbaan رضي الله عنه that the Prophet ﷺ said:

“I certainly know people of my ummah who will come on the Day of Resurrection with good deeds like the mountains of Tihaamah, but Allaah will make them like scattered dust.” Thawbaan said: O Messenger of Allaah, describe them to us and tell us more, so that we will not become of them unknowingly. He said: “They are your brothers and from your race, worshipping at night as you do, but they will be people who, when they are alone, transgress the sacred limits of Allaah.”

I think I know what happened here.

See, someone recently introduced Marik to television, and one of the first things he saw was the Wizard of Oz. Naturally during the latest evil council he played the movie on a projector for everyone (or tried to, it ended up being on the laptop when they discovered the projector was ancient and broken). Bakura didn’t think much of Dorothy or the rest, but he did find a likeable character in the evil witch. Then Marik decided that their next evil deed would be to sell watered-down juice disguised as juice to the unsuspecting public, mwahahaha, and Bakura took what was left of that plan to make The Juice Cart Catastrophe. 

no need to thank me

Blog PSA

Woooo I have tomorrow off!! Idk how I managed that haha but I do!

Gonna try and get through a real good chunk of drabbles tonight, but as of right now I’m making a playlist in a feat to get inspired and just cause :) so hopefully you all enjoy that. I’ll be honest I’m not technologically knowlegable so there won’t be links haha. 

Other than that, I’m attempting to get fics done, it’s a slow but so far fairly successful process. Again, if you have ideas for any of my fics (especially Jungle Man, Strange Happenings, A Diamond in the Rough, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Night Time My Time or You Really Got a Hold on Me) lay em on me! Please and thank you.

Hope you’re all having a lovely day :)
