Keanu Reeves talking about River Phoenix after he died: 

¨All i can say is that i have never felt a thing like that before in my life,¨ he says quietly. ¨I was very sad, and something beyond sad. I don´t know what it is, just that you sob for hours…¨

Is there camaraderie amongst you? This new generation of actors?

Keanu Reeves - No, we don’t hang out. The only one i was friends with was RIver (Phoenix)…

His untimely death plunged Hollywood into shock and placed him in the same galaxy as Marilyn Monroe, James Dean… Can stars escape tragedy?

Keanu Reeves - You have to forget their tragic death and remember that they were great actors, exceptional talents, who shone in heaven, on screen… So much beauty, so much emotion, so much sorrow… If people felt close to them, it’s because these stars were magnificent actors and their passing is all the more painful, frustrating. That’s the tragedy. But i also think, and i’d like to believe, that thanks to them, actors are born and will continue to be born…

The declaration of love by the fire is overwhelming…

Keanu Reeves - (long silence) River was an exceptional person, incredible… Where is my Juliet? Bullshit, fuck! (Another long silence) He was a really good guy.


Dearest Mother,

As I have mentioned in my previous letters, I have been troubled by strange dreams of late. My friend and confidant, the lady Upa Zuvhe, gave me a gift of sleeping draught, to no effect- if anything, the potion seemed to make the dreams more vivid. Lately, Lady Zuvhe has put aside the addressing of the symptoms, and set to the task of uncovering the source, though it seems she has met with little success where traditional medicine is concerned. By her reckoning, I am physically fit, hale and healthy, and it is therefore possible that my affliction comes not from an infirmity of body, but perhaps from a malady of spirit.

She offered to examine my aether. I will admit that I was frightened when she proposed this. There are still many things I do not understand about this Eorzea. This aether is perhaps the most strange of all. It is said to permeate all living things, but if that is true, how is it that I have never observed it within myself? Aether is spoken of in revered tones, and said to enable the use of magic- but even the simplest of spells are beyond my grasp. As you may recall, I cannot travel by aetherite, without being in its immediate presence. Even then, it is sometimes difficult.

I do not place my trust in this aether. I do not think it is real.

By and by, we traveled to the land called Mor Dhona, where Lady Zuvhe says aether flows freely due to the abundance of crystals. She said that her abilities might grow more potent there, and allow her to more easily find whatever it was inside of me that had broken.

Mor Dhona is a strange place. The grass, the trees, the very air, even the sky itself… All seemed to glow. They fairly seemed to shine with power beyond ken, an energy beyond my understanding. Is this the aether that Lady ZUvhe spoke of?

Mother, I felt nothing in Mor Dhona. Even the strange creatures that filled the air seemed more connected to that place than I felt.

I do not like it there.

It is difficult for me to explain what Lady Zuvhe did to examine my aether. I have seen Lady Zuvhe’s magic firsthand, I know that it is real… But this was something different. If there were spells at play, I could not readily observe them, and when it was finished, when Lady Zuvhe told me she had located what she was looking for inside me, I felt no different than I had when we began… I told her as much. She said that this was normal. Is it normal, mother?

We spoke of nicer things, then. She told me of her tribe, the Seekers of the Sun from whom she hails. They are different from me, mother, they are real Seekers of the Sun. What the Lady Zuvhe told me was not unlike the stories I have been told by the lady A'zaela Linh, another friend who I have gone to in the past. I wish to learn more about my people, if they are such. I do not know if I count. If I went among them, I do not know if they would think me a real Seeker of the Sun, or know me for what I really am, a crude facsimile.

I regret that I must ask this again, but it is a question that weighs increasingly on my mind, as I learn more of Eorzea- I would ask why you made me, mother. I do not mean to spurn the gift of life you have given me… But the more I discover about Eorzea, the more I come to understand that in all the land, I seem to be… Unique. Singular. This notion had never before occurred to me, but it is becoming increasingly clear that the circumstances behind my creation were not… Normal. Most Eorzeans, are born the natural way, not made.

I do not think there is anyone else in the world like me, mother. I think I am all alone. And I wonder why you did not tell me that. When I think on all the experiences I have been denied, I am given cause to wonder if my existence is not, perhaps, cruel. Perhaps even unfair.

Please forgive my insolence. I know there must be a reason for it. I only wish to understand what that reason is. I trust that there will come a day when you will tell me everything.

Your son,

Jude Paw

Thanks for your post yesterday about World Child Cancer. So excited that Cait is going off to one of their sites! Where exactly do they work? I do not have good wifi right now so cannot pull up their site.

Thanks Anon!  World Child Cancer supports efforts in 9 different countries - and within each of those 9 countries, there are several clinics or hospitals that fall under the WCC umbrella.  For example, in Central America, they support programs in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and the Dominion Republic. 

The international headquarters of WCC is in London - I believe that is where Cait has usually met with them and filmed some short pieces about their work, etc.  There is an office of WCC in the US - located in Denver, CO.  Additionally, St Jude’s in Memphis and Dana Farber in Boston partner with them.  There are also hospitals in Scotland, England, Canada, and other countries that collaborate with them.  So it is a large organization with a wide reach.

So where in the world is Cait going?  I’m looking forward to finding out - literally could be anywhere in the world where WCC works.  Unfortunately, there are children with cancer all over the world.  But fortunately, WCC and their partners are making great strides in improving treatment and outcomes!

Reblogging to add the whole list of countries where World Child Cancer works!  Sorry for the omission on the first go at answering your question, Anon!

Young justice is hinting for a season 3 and I’m really excited, hopefully everyone will watch season two on Netflix and boost up its rating as this is the only condition! I’m hoping it will take place in the five years  we have missed, showing how night wing excepted who the “real him ” is hopefully kid flash and wonder girl (not Cassie the first one) Starfire cyborg raven also be there, like it should be how they are getting used of being themselves and fine and no juding. Hope Tim drake Bart(who’s time machine failed first time) Superboy(plud match  who is closer to the younger team but then gets evil again I supppse)and cassie get a special together before season 2.

Well, Nick and I would go into protocol and try to assess the situation, helping the citizens of Zootopia with the best of our capabilities. It’s imperative for us to stay level-headed during a crisis such as that.”

“Sure, there is some prejudice between predators and prey. Zootopia isn’t perfect, there have been hate crimes committed on either side. But, no mammal would be that insane to try a stunt like that.. right?”

Perhaps [Anakin] would never have a Master-Padawan relationship as deep and trusting as Obi-Wan had with Qui-Gon. Perhaps Obi-Wan kept him as a Padawan in order to fulfill a dying wish. But maybe it didn’t matter how it happened.

He should not focus on what he didn’t have. He had this. This was his. And that was something. He would work hard. He would be a great Padawan. And Obi-Wan would come to love him. He would make him do so.

Oh Boy

Baby Anakin really needs to work on his relationship skills. (As, for that matter, does Obi-Wan.)



As soon as Jude had taken him up on the offer to come over, Carter had straightened up the bed and tossed a couple extra pillows he had onto it so it would be comfortable and ready before the other arrived. He wasn’t sure what was bothering Jude, but he knew he’d get to the bottom of it when the other man was in the same room as he was. It was becoming routine for them to spend time together and Carter found himself considering the idea of giving Jude a key to his room. He’d told the other he was allowed to come over whenever he wanted, but this way he’d be able to get in without having to wake Carter up if the vampire was asleep during the daylight hours.

The vampire had his ears listening for any sign that Jude was nearby and only when he heard footsteps stop outside his door did he move with vampire speed to open the door, before Jude could even bother to raise his hand and knock on the door. “Hey you.” Carter told him, offering a smile as he stepped aside and gestured for the other to come in. “Come in and make yourself at home.” Carter told him. It was practically second nature to let Jude make himself at home in his hotel room. They spent enough time together in here anyways. Plus, besides his brother, Jude was the only person Carter trusted enough to let in here.
