A little post for @inuyasha-valentines @kagomeforever

InuYasha and Kagome’s relationship is not only ridiculously cute, but incredibly healthy. Though it doesn’t start that way, it certainly grows that way. They both love each other unconditionally. When one is hurting, the other is there to help without expectation of judgement. And though they fight, it’s usually because they want the best for each other. They know each other inside and out, and accept the shortcomings each person has. 

The two embody the cliched (yet beautiful) “love is patient, love is kind… it is not self-seeking… it rejoices with the truth” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7). Their relationship has inspired me to let go of relationships in my personal life that did not serve or inspire me. When we respect ourselves enough to make room for the love we seek and deserve (especially coming from within), that’s when magic happens.

I hope the true love of these two goofballs can inspire us to fight for the love that we want, no matter how painful that journey may be.

Happy Valentines Day!

Quem ama é paciente e bondoso. Quem ama não é ciumento, nem orgulhoso, nem vaidoso. Quem ama não é grosseiro nem egoísta; não fica irritado, nem guarda mágoas. Quem ama não fica alegre quando alguém faz uma coisa errada, mas se alegra quando alguém faz o que é certo. Quem ama nunca desiste, porém suporta tudo com fé, esperança e paciência.

What is love

When you see how hard someone works and tell them…..
When you believe and enjoy seeing the gifts one has been blessed with….
When you think someone is stronger than they have said about you…
When you see how the person looks out and protects other individuals…..
When you recognize the pain a person holds on to and wish you could fill it up with loving actions.
When you see how the person makes a positive difference in this world…
When you notice the powerful and caring way someone can lead others….
When you offer only kindness and patience during one’s chaotic struggles….
When you tell a person to acknowledge each great thing they have done
When you know how special a person is, even if they doubt themselves…..

It is slow to be angered, it has patience, is the kindness offered.
O amor é paciente, o amor é bondoso. Não inveja, não se vangloria, não se orgulha. Não maltrata, não procura seus interesses, não se ira facilmente, não guarda rancor. O amor não se alegra com a injustiça, mas se alegra com a verdade. Tudo sofre, tudo crê, tudo espera, tudo suporta.
—  1 Coríntios 13:4-7

O amor é sofredor, é benigno; o amor não é invejoso; o amor não se vangloria, não se ensoberbece, não se porta inconvenientemente, não busca os seus próprios interesses, não se irrita, não suspeita mal; não se regozija com a injustiça, mas se regozija com a verdade; tudo sofre, tudo crê, tudo espera, tudo suporta.
—  I Coríntios 13:4-7 
Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

My kh fantasy ch 1

Please note this is my first story and I’m not an English major just my fantasy free lance writing 

Chapter 1 

Well I started out like most of us kinksters. I stumbled upon chastity while browsing other porn sites and became instantly turned on and devoted all my extra time to finding out everything there is to know about chastity. I loved the history of how the knights would lock up their wives while away at war to the current day of women locking up men or in this day in age men locking up men.

I remember ordering my first cage online the cb-2000. My erection growing and pulsing in my jeans as I’m entering my credit card number of course I upgraded to next day air express shipping. I ordered and shipped it to my work because it said discreet shipping and I knew what time the ups truck showed up. The next day I so distracted waiting for my package to arrive I remember the buzzer ringing at the back door I ran through the office to greet the handsome man in the brown uniform I signed for my package and went directly to the men’s room and tried it on. I started with the larger ring with medium spacing and closed the lock oh what a feeling that was. I took the rest of the pieces and keys to my vehicle and remained locked for the rest of the day. And of course, I ordered other cages the cb-3000, 6000, 6000s, curve and the bird cage, jail house. My current cage is the holy trainer v2 and has been the comfortable and discreet cage I have found that fits my anatomy.

But like most I was a self locker and could unlock whenever I wanted so I decided it was time to step up my game. I posted an ad on craigslist it read as follows.

HI I’m a 33-year-old male looking for a key holder I have been wearing my chastity cage for 3 days with no orgasm 2 day prior to that my record is two weeks of lock up. I’m going to place my keys in my paid locker #117 at the gym the combination is 7-13-4 the gym is located at 513 Main St. Portland. If you do not have a membership they offer a two-week trial pass for free the keys will be hanging on the hook please just take them and my release is up to your discretion. You may leave a note or respond to this ad at your convenience. My release is in your hands. You can just be a key holder or have me complete a task to earn my freedom or any other creative ideas you may come up with. I wish to thank you in advance for your services.

And then I hit submit ad. I live about 4 blocks from the gym. I rushed to the gym to not disappoint anyone and put my keys on the hook and changed my clothes. I work out regularly m-f and it varies am or pm. This was a Saturday I skipped Sunday to give myself a break. I continued my work out at the gym Monday trough Thursday with the keys still on the hook my horniness growing more and more every day. My plan on Friday was to unlock myself after my work out jerk off in the shower and relock but when I returned from my workout the keys were gone.

You can imagine my thoughts running through my head. Had this guy been stalking me all week watching me change my clothes as it was busy gym there was always someone in the locker room. I took my shower wondering who my new key holder was. There was no note in my locker and no email on my phone responding to my ad it finally hit me I am no longer in control of my orgasms. 

danagel replied to my post:

13 runs on 7 hits?!  We’ll take the mercy…

Yeah. They walked 13, and 4 of those 7 hits were home runs, none cheap. It was a complete mismatch from the jump. They were very small, looked like maybe they were 11′s. The score would have been far, far worse but we took our foot off the accelerator a bit.

I’d have normally felt bad about administering that kind of beating to a bunch of fifth graders, but I feel worse for them about how badly coached they are, and by a bunch of shitty men. One of their coaches was shitty to our head coach during warmups, another was shitty with me when exchanging lineups, and one of them (I think the head coach) nearly got ejected for arguing with the ump in the first inning when it was already clear they were going to be destroyed. Shitty all around. Those kids don’t deserve that. No kid does.

Their most unforgivable sin: the poor child who started for them needed 54 pitches to record 2 outs, and not once did those shitty shitheads come out to the mound to talk to him or check on him. They just let him be roasted. 

Remember empathy? That was a nice feature of humanity. Shame we deprecated it.

Quem ama é paciente e bondoso; quem ama não é ciumento, nem orgulhoso, nem vaidoso; quem ama não é grosseiro, nem egoísta, não fica irritado, nem guarda mágoa; quem ama não fica alegre quando alguém faz uma coisa errada, mas se alegra quando alguém faz o que é certo; quem ama nunca desiste, porém tudo suporta com fé, esperança e paciência

frei-rancken  asked:

Hello again! I'm not sure if it's easy to answer what i'm about to ask but... Could yo either point m to bibliography or name a few pagan practices regarding small offerings or gestures "norse" peoples had. Talking about offering to elfs or stuff like that, or maybe things to do with the practising "witches" of the time. (i'm writing a thing and i'm in need of details from various cultures so i'm stuck between looking specifics between generalities, when authors focus on the later, usually. thxs

Komdu sæll og blessaður, vinir minn,
(Come happy and blessed, my friend,)

I must apologize for how long it has taken me to get back to you, and I do hope that you will be able to forgive me for the delayed response.

Magic and rituals are most definitely not my ‘specialty’ (I am no expert, and I do not know the intricacies of this subject like many others do), but I will do my best to help. I am much more familiar with medieval Icelandic society, law, and (more recently) gender studies (particularly the changing concepts of masculinity). That said, I am bound to miss vital resources for learning about these subjects in particular. If anyone else reading this knows of other helpful resources, please feel free to let them be known!

In regards to small offerings or gestures, I am going to focus on two types of spirits in particular: dísir and (land)vættir. (For a bit more detail about what those are exactly, check out this post). There are a few others that could be considered, but I think these would be what you would find the most interest in. Also, I know that you specifically requested álfar, but there is an unfortunate lack of information about them. In my opinion though (which is not much, since I have yet to carefully research this), I believe that the dísir and vættir are álfar, but simply taking on worldly roles rather than mythological ones. There is more complexity to it than that, of course, so take that for what it is worth. Regardless, they are all quite similar in nature. There is, however, much more information (in the sources that I am familiar with) about the other types.

I have actually already shared a few posts containing reading recommendations for dísir and vættir (as well as seiðr and völva). I will share those links with you in just a moment, but I will also be providing the information below (in a format more organized and convenient for you). Here, I am also expanding upon the previous list. Nonetheless, here are the past posts concerning this topic (or topics fairly similar):

  1. Víkingabók Database: Jól, Spirits, Magic, and Rituals. (Needs updating, and it will be sometime following this response).
  2. On Landvættir: An Exploration of Primary Source Examples and Suggestions for Further Reading.
  3. Details from Eiríks saga rauða about magic and magic rituals.
  4. A brief discussion about the term ‘seiðr’ in translation.

Otherwise, here is an updated and more convenient list for you to explore. It is not a comprehensive list by any means, but it should be more than enough to get you started. (For a list of the Sagas and Tales of Icelanders and where to find them, see this post).

I truly hope that this list proves to be helpful for you. As I have said, it is most definitely not a complete list. In fact, many of the sources above may not be worth you buying if for this purpose alone (especially since some of the sagas only refer to your concerns for brief moments). I highly recommend looking at the free versions that are available for each resource if that is the case. If you are to put any money into this research, I recommend the secondary sources that I have listed.

If there is anything else you may need, feel free to ask. I know that it took my a bit of time to respond, but I will be more than happy to continue helping you out. I am nearing summer, so I will have a relatively more open schedule for the next couple months.

Many Christians understand that sex is the act of love reserved only for married couple, but many choose not to wait until marriage. Many people simply refuse to acknowledge the direct command of the Bible against premarital sex.

1 Corinthians 6:18
Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body.

We aren’t told to calmly walk away or to try to confront it, no, we’re told to get the heck out of dodge. This kind of temptation is far too great for us to deal with it on our own. Obey His Word and run from it.

The Greek word porneia is most often translated “sexual immorality” or “fornication” in the New Testament. Some translations consistently render porneia as “fornication” in order to differentiate it from “adultery.” The word “fornication,” in modern English, primarily carries the idea of premarital sex / sex before marriage. However, porneia does not actually refer, explicitly, to premarital sex. It actually refers to sexual perversion in general. Greek literature from the approximate time period as the New Testament used porneia to refer to prostitution, homosexuality, adultery, incest, and other sexual perversions. So, we should not necessarily read “premarital sex” into every occurrence of porneia in the New Testament. The question arises, then, is premarital sex considered a sexual perversion within the scope of porneia?

In order to determine whether premarital sex is considered a sexual perversion, it is helpful to focus on what sex is supposed to be. The best way to recognize a counterfeit is to be familiar with the truth. Sex, biblically speaking, is intended to be a physical union between a husband and his wife with the goal of reproduction, and/or physical pleasure, and/or emotional closeness. Biblically speaking, though, the determining factor in whether sex is sinful is the question “with whom?”, not “why?” Nowhere does the Bible speak against sex between a husband and his wife. Everywhere sex outside of marriage is mentioned, the Bible condemns it. Sex outside of marriage is a perversion. It does not matter when, with whom, or why; sex between anyone other than a husband and his wife is a perversion of sex. Therefore, premarital sex is a perversion, and condemned every time the Bible condemns porneia.

There is also a more explicitly biblical basis on which to declare premarital sex as porneia. First Corinthians 7:2 reads, “But because of the temptation to sexual immorality (porneia), each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.” In this verse, the Apostle Paul presents a problem “the temptation to sexual immorality” and a solution “each man having his own wife and each women her own husband.” If marriage is the solution, the problem logically must be extra-marital. To define porneia in 1 Corinthians 7:2 as prostitution or incest or some other sexual perversion does not make sense if premarital sex is not also a perversion. If premarital sex is not a sin, why is prostitution a sin? Both involve consenting adults. It is biblically clear that marriage is the sanctifying factor in sex. Sex in marriage is good and right. Sex outside of and/or before marriage is a sinful perversion.

The Bible is so abundantly clear about premarital sex that, ultimately, if anyone argues for premarital sex being allowed, it must be due to that person’s desire to engage in premarital sex. Almost any behavior can be justified by a person who refuses to submit to what the Bible says. But, we are never to interpret the Bible based on our wants and desires. Rather, we are to allow the Bible to shape our wants and desires. The biblical message on premarital sex is clear. Premarital sex is a perversion of God’s intention for sex, and is therefore condemned whenever the Bible condemns sexual immorality (Acts 15:20; 1 Corinthians 5:11 Corinthians 6:131 Corinthians 181 Corinthians 7:21 Corinthians 10:8; 2 Corinthians 12:21; Galatians 5:19; Ephesians 5:3; Colossians 3:5; 1 Thessalonians 4:3; Hebrews 13:4; Jude 7).
