things that make neil feel real:

  • dan’s facebook photo albums
  • being spun around until he’s dizzy whenever he sees matt
  • having to clean up cat litter :(
  • the fond hair ruffle wymack gives him when he comes to visit palmetto
  • that one time all of the foxes managed to get together for a reunion (and the repeat cuddle pile that followed)
  • allison’s vague tweets that are very obviously about his friends
  • team game night (also known as neil trying not to nod off in the corner but loving the time spent with his family anyways)
  • articles about how far the foxes have come
  • stadiums filled with thousands of exy fans cheering him and his team on
  • being part of kevin’s acceptance speech as he’s inducted into the hall of fame
  • being able to sign his name on official documents
  • drinking pricey fruit smoothies (and pretending not to notice whenever andrew steals a sip)
  • having a ring full of keys that he actually uses and a ring full of keys that he can’t bring himself to give up
  • waking up in the morning and feeling like he’s home

things that andrew finds himself living for:

  • weekly skype calls with nicky
  • an amazon account that’s used to send impulse buys to the other minyards (including but not limited to: chemistry cat sweatshirts, a kevin day limited edition operation game, a recipe book of various chocolate desserts)
  • letters from renee, written in her barely-legible handwriting and usually covered with animal stickers
  • hot chocolate and phone calls with bee
  • robin slowly upping her stats and the way she’d excitedly call to tell him (as if he’s the one who actually cares)
  • the occasional opportunity to blackmail kevin into letting him skip court practices using embarrassing photos from their college days
  • making the team’s nutritionist cry
  • volunteer charities that work to help kids stuck in the foster care system/abusive households
  • the hilarious expressions of surprise on the foxes’ faces when they see him take care of his nieces at their reunion
  • the tea place a few streets down that trade him pictures of his and neil’s cats doing dumb things with whatever desserts they have left over
  • waking up in the morning and feeling like he’s home

L'abbigliamento era costituito dalla classica camicia nera, fazzoletto azzurro, pantaloni grigioverde, fascia nera, fez (il copricapo arabo mutuato dagli arditi): la divisa dei Balilla tradiva l'impostazione paramilitare (e propedeutica alla leva militare vera e propria) dell'ONB.

Quasi sempre presente nelle esercitazioni,era inoltre il moschetto Balilla (in versione giocattolo per i figli della lupa).

Hi hi hi ~ I was wondering if I could request lucio, mccree, genji and Soldier 76 with a s/o that would randomly jump on their back please? 😊


  • But he loves carrying you around, sometimes even galloping as you would shout “Onward steed!”
  • You’d often find yourself racing against D.va on top of Tracer’s back… They always won but something told you that had something to do with Tracer’s abilities


  • More than happy when you jump onto his back. You weigh nothing to him so it’s easy for him to do anything with you on his back
  • However, you were prone to stealing his hat but he didn’t mind because he’d always said how adorable you looked with it on
  • Be prepared for a lot of photos to be taken, you two are adorable!


  • Old habits kicked in and he thought you were an attacker. This resulted in him flipping you over his shoulder and onto the bed.
  • He realised it was just you by the way you giggled. You reached your arms above your head, signalling that you wanted a hug. He laughed and shook his head, bending down to kiss your forehead.
  • Now the two of you fit it into a routine, you’d shout his name so that he knew it was you

Soldier: 76:

  • Honestly, he almost fell over the first time you surprise attacked him, probably a mix of shock and old age
  • He’d laugh it off and tell you that he’d need warning before you spontaneously did that
  • So instead, you’d stand behind him with your hands on his shoulders and jump on the spot as “preparation”

I have a feeling most Sakura haters didn't actually finish the series because they keep calling her weak, irrelevant, useless, only trying to make Sasuke hers, always crying for help (the only time she did it was during the Pain arc right?). I myself used to hate her and believed those comments, and guess what, i didn't even know a fucking thing about Naruto back then. I was blindly following the movement, without actual knowledge of the character or the series

 The fault is  at the anime who ruined her character by adding constant fillers that basically made her go ooc all the time. And considering most of the Naruto fans are only anime watchers they cannot tell the Huge Difference that exists in Sakura as a character whhen yoyou compare her manga (and canon) self to the downplayed heroine that studio pierrot trashs on

Be it her personality



Or her looks

But leaving the anime aside most of the haters are either

  • Buthurt shippers
  • Fanboys of other girls *cough you know who I’m talking about cough*
  • Selfinserted fans who think of sakura as the popular girl who wants the “bad boy” (which is absolutely not the case but hey let them think that if it makes them sleep at night

Philadelphia: the inside track

Not just the birthplace of the nation, Philadelphia has a dynamic food culture, a booming arts scene and cool to spare. Philly native Nell McShane Wulfhart shares her insider guide.

Home-grown style and sips

Shopping in Philly runs the gamut from classic (at Macy’s in the historic Wanamaker building) to cutting-edge, with local fashionistas producing one-of-a-kind lewks. Bonus: clothes and shoes aren’t taxed! Check out Fishtown for boutiques like Toile, which sells clothes by up-and-coming Philly designers. And it’s not just about fashion – the neighbourhood is home to remarkable local distilleries. Skip the duty free; instead pick up award-winning Bluecoat Gin at Philadelphia Distilling and micro-batch herbal liqueurs at Rowhouse Spirits.

Garden city

Fairmount Park, a sprawling series of woods and hiking trails, is one of the largest urban parks in the nation, and makes a fabulous afternoon nature excursion for the whole family. There are gorgeous smaller green spaces too. Rittenhouse Square (known in summer as ‘Rittenhouse Beach’, thanks to the hordes who sun themselves on the grass) is right in the centre of town and hosts farmers’ markets and art fairs. Tiny ‘parklets’, stocked with just a few chairs and tables, are hidden all over town.

Foodie paradise

Philly’s food scene is booming, with over 2500 restaurants to choose from and the likes of high-profile chefs such as Jose Garces building restaurant empires here. Head to his Amada restaurant for exquisite Andalusian tapas paired with adventurous Spanish wines, or try sophisticated modern Israeli food by Michael Solomonov at Zahav. Also look out for the city’s dozens of tiny BYOBs with sophisticated menus and affordable prices – book a table at Will, where chef Christopher Kearse sends out French-inspired seasonal plates including scallops with garlic flower buds and monkfish tail in a lobster bouillon.

Go hard or go home

Philly fans are infamously passionate, and the city’s nine professional sports teams keep emotions keyed up year-round. Tailgating in the parking lot of Citizens Bank Park or Lincoln Financial Field (the two South Philly stadiums) with portable barbecues and coolers crammed with beers before a big game is an unmissable part of the local sports experience, though cheering on the Eagles (American football) or the Phillies (baseball) with hyper-enthusiastic crowds isn’t bad either.

Rock(y) on

Rocky is the quintessential Philly movie, but Trading Places, The Sixth Sense and many others were filmed here – not to mention National Treasure, which sees Nicholas Cage running around from City Hall to Reading Terminal Market. Check out the spots that made it onscreen with Philadelphia Movie Sites Tour, or stick with the hometown hero on a self-guided Rocky journey. The imposing and historic Eastern State Penitentiary offers tours, too – it was the asylum featured in Brad Pitt hit Twelve Monkeys.

Cultural fix

An extraordinary 3600 murals and counting (including tributes to city history and beloved local groups like The Roots) have turned the city into an enormous, bright open-air gallery. More traditional work can be found in the two world-renowned museums on the Parkway: the Barnes Foundation and the Philadelphia Museum of Art (snap a photo with the Rocky statue while you’re there), which give New York and Washington DC, just one and two hours by train, respectively, a run for their money. History buffs must make time to visit one of the city’s newest attractions, the Museum of the American Revolution which brings the past to life with immersive galleries, astonishing historical works of art and Revolutionary-era weapons.

Dream on

Bed down at the fresh-from-a-redesign Logan hotel, which has its own art collection and is just a 15-minute ride from the airport, with direct flights from London Heathrow with British Airways. The LEED-certified Courtyard Philadelphia South at the Navy Yard has a cool futuristic vibe; plus, it’s walking distance to the stadiums. And, there’s old-school glamour in abundance at the chic Warwick which is surrounded by the city’s most luxurious shops.

Book your trip to Philadelphia

  • “You are the most beautiful girl in the entire world”
  • Duets of ‘A Whole New World’ from Aladdin
  • Arguing over whether or not he should put his name into the Goblet of Fire because you think it’s too dangerous

  • Screaming out to him when he gets burned by the dragon
  • Not caring at all how the burns to his face would affect his appearance
  • Sitting with him in the hospital wing all day and all night, and Madam Pomfrey letting you apply the potion that would help him heal
  • Holding hands all the time no matter what you were doing
  • Going to the Yule Ball together - him asking you at the top of the Astronomy tower
  • Being nervous about dancing in front of everyone but him calming you down by telling you to stare into his eyes and when you do everyone else just disappears
  • Him refusing to let you help him for the second task because that would be cheating

  • But Cedric being your hero and hexing the Death Eater just in time
  • Getting married only a couple years after the war

BNHA is a series long meta on what is means to be a hero and that’s… amazing

  • conversation about heroics vs. vigilantism vs. villainy 
  • what makes a hero and what makes a wannabe 
  • should heroes be celebreties or treated like firefighters? 
  • the commercialization and over glorification of heroes
  • what it means to realize that a hero is a human too
  • the next generation of heroes learning from an imperfect generation 
  • that being a hero might just only mean what side of the law you’re on
  • Being a good hero doesn’t mean you’re a good person

I could go on and on, but these are all topics that have been raised in the manga thus far and honestly in such a mature yet entertaining way. It doesn’t take away from the story, it doesn’t preach, it just raises questions and allows the reader to draw their own conclusions which is… literally all I’ve ever wanted
