you guys, auston matthews isn’t just the highest drafted latino player in nhl history. he’s the only player of colour to ever go first overall in the draft. there’s such little racial diversity in hockey, and his success is so important.

2/19 ▪ Super exciting show weekend! My school did really well and a dance I was in got 1st overall. I hope you’ve had an enjoyable weekend!

Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn...
  • 1st House: Overall, this isn't a good time for you. Meeting new people is a bad idea. You come off much different than you are. Turmoil is expected.
  • 2nd House: Money isn't your friend. You may not feel satisfied. You spend too frivolously at this time, or something happens that costs you much more money than expected.
  • 3rd House: This kicks your ass. You're having trouble communicating, and come off different than you are. You may not think enough or may overthink. You're impulsive, but will often regret choices made after the fact.
  • 4th House: The IC, relating to the home. Problems with children, family members, ect. Christmas probably wasn't much fun for you.
  • 5th House: Tbh, you're basically just bummed as hell.
  • 6th House: You're probably sick.
  • 7th House: Relationships aren't a good thing to get into at this time.
  • 8th House: An assortment of things. Also just a generally bad time. May get practically slammed with Karma at this time. Probably horny. Please don't do occult things rn.
  • 9th House: Don't travel you'll die. May go on real journeys (that usually end up being less than pleasant) or emotional ones that are just the same.
  • 10th House: Work may be difficult for you. If you're going in for an interview, you may want to delay it. Dispute between you and authority figures.
  • 11th House: You may be acting too selfless, or your actions are mistaken as being manipulative or trying to get favors.
  • 12th House: Odd dreams, maybe even psychic. Nightmares. Making enemies. Sexual endeavors gone wrong / you're horny.

Mere moments after he’d settled, Harry had put a polished glass and an open bottle of Irish Whiskey in front of him. “On the house, Mr. Shelby.” He offered with his usual smile. Thomas put down two coins anyways, the price for a single glass. Unlike his brothers, he preferred to stay sober when working.

His eyes wandered to the doctor crouched behind the bar, her blonde locks piled atop her head in a messy bun as she counted bottles and took notes. His peace was ended when a familiar, but unwelcome, presence appeared beside him.

“I’ll take a mild.” Freddie told the barkeep. He was presented with his beer quick enough. Freddie’s hand slid over, his fingers pressing on one of the coins Tommy had put down before sliding it in front of himself. Thomas gave a huff of a laugh, his head slightly shaking at the gall of the man.

Harry froze, his eyes darting to Thomas to ask permission to take the payment. When no answer came, he instead left the two to their conversation, making himself scarce.

“Cheers, Thomas.” Freddie raised his beer to him as his back leaned against the polished bar top. He observed the pub’s occupants as he drank heartily from the mug. “Good health to you.” It was a sarcastic hope as he placed the beer down and picked up the discarded cap.

Freddie looked at the two razor blades sewn into the peak, the always sharp silver gleaming in the light. Like those of a General’s rank insignia, in this town,  they showed he was a man of high power, best not to anger. “The crown of a prince.” He joked, before throwing it back onto the bar. “Soon to be King, I’d bet.”

“You don’t bet.” Was his only response.

“No, but these past few days I’ve been speculating.” Freddie gave him an observing once over.

Silence fell between them before Thomas’ brows gave a small jump. “About what?”

“One of my Union comrades has a sister, works in the telegraph office at the BSA factory. She says over the past week they’ve had messages coming up from London to the brass - from Winston Churchill himself.” Freddie came closer, bracing his elbows on the table as his voice dropped low so he wasn’t overheard. “Something about a robbery.” Thomas blew the smoke from his mouth, his eyes finding Rose once more. “A robbery of national significance, it said.” Freddie dug deeper, his eyes glancing to the woman as well before returning to the gangster. “She found the list of names left on the telegraph machine. And on that list, was your name and my name together.” Thomas finally spared him a moment of eye contact, his interest piqued. “What kind of a list would have the name of a Communist and the name of a bookmaker side-by-side?”

Thomas had heard enough. “Perhaps it’s a list of men who give false hope to the poor.” He turned to him then, regarding with the cold recognition one regards a passing stranger proving a slight annoyance. “The only difference between you and me, Freddie, is that sometimes my horses stand a chance of winning.” His brows lifted in expectation, waiting for the usual slew of communist posturing. Always a sure fire way to change Freddie’s focus.

But here, amongst others, Freddie didn’t dare.

He looked back at Thomas with the same unfamiliarity. How had they once been best friends? Freddie sniffed, straightening his posture to lean over the man. “You know-” He began quietly. “-there are days when I hear about the cuttings and beatings that I really wish I’d let you take that bullet in France.”

The smile Tommy gave was of an amusement born of secret resentment. “Believe me, there are nights I wish you had.“ Nights when he woke up, the flames licking at his flesh, the smell of clay and soil so deep in his nose he thought he was suffocating. Night when he had to get out of the house because every wall seemed to be moving closer and closer, closing in on him as his chest felt heavy and his body tensed and shook, awaiting the eventual defenseless immobility. Nights like last night….

He put the glass to his lips, taking a healthy swallow.

His cold empty stare at the mirror ahead was blocked when a familiar form stepped in front of it. Blue eyes immediately turning up to see Rose staring between them, a slight bounce to her eyebrow as she looked between the two men and their obvious tension.

First 10k race done and I don’t know how to feel about it. The course was basically just up- and downhill, and most of the hills were brutally long and steep so I nearly got a cramp in both my thighs at some point, and none of the course was paved, AND on top of all of that my Garmin’s battery died before I even reached the 5km mark. SO it really didn’t go as planned, especially since I crossed the finish line after 44 minutes.. But it was enough for 3rd place overall and 1st in my age group and I enjoyed the race so I am happy! My lungs and heart definitely could have run faster however my legs really couldn’t because of those hills so that was kind of unfortunate, but I’m running another 10k in 12 days on a flatter course so I am hoping for a much better time there :)
