Some of my favorite quotes by James “I’m not good with words” Carstairs (in no particular order):
1. “There is more to living than not dying.”
2. “There are so many worse things than death. Not to be loved or not to be able to love: that is worse.”
3. “We are all the pieces of what we remember. We hold in ourselves the hopes and fears of those who love us. As long as there is love and memory, there is no true loss.”
4. “Whatever you are physically…male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy–all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside.”
5.“You speak of sacrifice, but it is not my sacrifice I offer. It is yours I ask of you. “I can offer you my life, but it is a short life; I can offer you my heart, though I have no idea how many more beats it shall sustain. But I love you enough to hope that you will not care that I am being selfish in trying to make the rest of my life - whatever length - happy, by spending it with you. I want to be married to you, Tessa. I want it more than I have ever wanted anything else in my life.”
6. “I know you feel inhuman, and as if you are set apart, away from life and love, but… I promise you, the right man won’t care.”
7. “Our hearts, they need a mirror, Tessa. We see our better selves in the eyes of those who love us.”
8. “For that was love, wasn’t it–to burn bright in someone else’s eyes?”
9. “Change is no loss, Will. Not always.”
10. “I do not believe you can threaten people into goodness.”
11. “I’ve never minded it. Being lost, that is. I had always thought one could not be truly lost if one knew one’s own heart. But I fear I may be lost without knowing yours.”
12. “Listen to me. I am leaving, but I am living. I will not be gone from you entirely, Will. When you fight now, I will be still by you. When you walk in the world, I will be the light at your side, the ground steady under your feet, the force that drives the sword in your hand. We are bound, beyond the oath. The Marks did not change that. The oath did not change that. It merely gave words to something that existed already.”
13. “You are home for me now.“
14. “There are things no magic can destroy, for they are magic in themselves.”
15. “But if you’re foolish enough to want me then I will not question my good fortune.”
16. “Perhaps it is not such a bad thing to be set apart.”
17. “Love does not stop when someone dies.”
18. “Sometimes it’s braver not to fight. Protect them, and save your vengeance for another day.”
19. “I think if two souls are meant to be together, they will remain together on the Wheel and be together again in the life after this one, whatever happens to us now.”
20. “You don’t even like poetry,” Tessa said, her voice catching on a half laugh of relief.
—"No. But you make me want to write it. Does that not count for anything?”
Oh boy let me tell you my Kawarama headcanons. I need happy thoughts right now so let’s call this an everyone-lives!AU.
- Youngest of 4 brothers. Not 1 ounce of mercy to be had. He’s learned through experience, okay.
- Cheerful, friendly, happy to fuck you up if you mess with him. While smiling. Tobirama is so proud.
- Some unholy blend of Hashirama’s charm and Tobirama’s focus. Born diplomat. Possibly born conman. Really, what’s the difference in the end.
- Likes fire.
- No, you don’t understand, he really likes fire. No affinity? No sweat. He likes it when things explode, anyway.
- Eternally disappointed that the Uchiha won’t share their Katon jutsus.
- (The Uchiha are So Tired of this cheerful little menace ambushing them on missions to figure out their jutsus. Peace would be worth it just to get him to stop.)
- Fully supports peace, because peace means 24/7 access to Uchihas and their ability to set things on fire.
- Also likes swords. And shuriken.
- Probably like 83% of the reason why Tobirama’s hair is white.
- And 100% of the reason why Itama’s is half white.
- Hashirama is the sibling he’s closest too, mostly because Hashirama is easily manipulated and fun to get reactions out of.
- Calls Tobirama mom without a hint of shame.
- Itama gets grandmother even though they’re like. 17 months apart. Kawa, have mercy.
- He’s a menace to his family, but as that one Uchiha who keeps eyeing Itama found out, he’s a damned Horror to anyone outside of his family.
- (Izuna is scarred, okay. And Hikaku hasn’t stopped laughing in a week.)
- Doesn’t tend to get interested in inventing jutsus the way Tobirama does, because he’d rather just learn them and then use them. People are more interesting than jutsus anyway.
- Knows the name/face/history/interests of every person he’s ever had a conversation with.
- Doesn’t understand why this is scary.
- Good memory. Especially for anything that might be considered blackmail.
- Loves his family. Hates being the youngest. Will gut anyone who tries to pick on him.
- Has given up on being an overachiever (come on, his brothers are Tobirama and Hashirama, there’s no way to outshine them without resorting to, like, actual godhood). Will settle for being Terrifying.
- Has achieved this, and is quite happy with it, thanks.
Hello everyone! So recently I reached a follower goal on @meanieficrecs and promised an all-time favorite fics compilation. Since I already have a top 5 fics post there, I decided to post on here.These are not only main meanie, but also fics with side meanie. Even though this is far overdue, I hope this post is useful. Once again, thank you all so much for the love you have shown. (I apologize for the length of this post!)
1. Mario’s new hat is named “Cappy”.
2. Cappy can talk.
3. Cappy’s original form manifests in the form of a white top hat.
4. The rabbits are called the Broodals and they are an evil wedding planning company
5. The girl rabbit is named Harriet, which is a pun on “hare”, which is a rabbit.
6. Mario can use Cappy to transform or take the form of various objects by throwing Cappy at them.
7. The purple collectables are actually coins that are only usable in certain areas throughout the game
8. Coins are actually used to buy things this time around
9. The desert world is called Tostarena.
10. Some enemies wear hats. In order to take their form, you have to knock the hats off of them by throwing Cappy.
11. Pauline is the mayor (you heard me right, THE MAYOR) of New Donk City. She even makes a physical appearance!
12. Much like how there are Power stars to collect in most games like Odyssey, there are now Power Moons to collect for Mario’s ship, with Grand Moons found after every boss fight.
13. How many Power Moons you collect is directly related to how far you can travel.
14. There are some sections in the ruins of Tostarena where you can use a Warp Pipe to enter a wall and you can play these sections in the style of the original “Super Mario Bros” on the NES!
15. When you lose a life, 10 coins are taken from your coin count.
16. When Mario takes damage from a Bullet Bill, he is covered in soot for a few seconds.
17. Apart from taking the forms of various enemies, there are several different costume options for Mario, as well, some of which give different in-game advantages!
18. The game is releasing near the end of October!!!
19. There are amiibos of Mario, Bowser, and Peach in their wedding attire!
Feel free to add more; this is all I can think of at the top of my head!
It’s funny how many “millennial” posts I see on tumblr that are from people who are gen Z. Some say gen Z starts after 1995 and others 2000 so I don’t even know what I am. But I feel more gen Z to be honest.
Summary: You’d just wanted to dance away your worries, let the music take you to better places. But when you meet Kwon Jiyong in the new club in town, you never imagined ‘better places’ would be so easy to find, and so difficult to hold onto.

Chapter 3 - You discuss with Abbie your night with Jiyong, and going back to the club.
Chapter 4 - You hang out with Jiyong at the club, but when he makes a mistake is it over before its started, or can Daesung save the day?

Chapter 7 - You meet Mr Yang, and you and Jiyong spend the night at your apartment.

Chapter 12 - Shooting with Jiyong, getting heated with Daesung and Seunghyun - ;) - and spending the night with Jiyong…
Chapter 13 - Waking up next to Jiyong and morning fluff. Returning to the set and realising that everything isn’t as it seems….
Chapter 14 - Filming with Jiyong, a visit from an unexpected visitor, Richard tells you he’s worried about you, Jiyong surprises you on your date and he confesses…
Chapter 15 - Taking Jiyong home, and you wake up to find that shit has hit the fan…and there is only one man who knows what to do…
Chapter 16 - A talk with Seunghyun, a fight at the club and waking up in someone else’s apartment…
Chapter 17 - Going home and facing Jiyong, and the secret that Seunghyun’s been hiding is finally revealed…(at least one of them anyway…)
Chapter 18 - Catching up with an old best friend, more secrets, and fluffy times with Jiyong- as well as a gatecrashing Youngbae.
Chapter 19 - Seunghyun gets you an audition, but the excitement has devastating effects. (Feat. a rain soaked Jiyong)

Going home to Jiyong and movie night fun.
Chapter 22 -
You and Jiyong have a serious talk, and you go to the studio with him…
Chapter 23 -
Jiyong finds out that you already knew Seunghyun and secrets are revealed…
Chapter 24 -

Uuh, I don’t usually post my fics in Tumblr buuuuut I thought that posting one chap of the Chat Fic I’m making might be fun? So, yeah.
Er, it’s angsty?? But it also has fluff??? I dunno? I just know I worked hard on this chap so I wanted to share.
Also; it’s based on that Au of mine where the gang is in a Radio Station and each of them have a show in it, well except Coran, he has a bakery.
