Lord-of-Blood

The Lord is angry with all nations;
his wrath is on all their armies.
He will totally destroy them,
he will give them over to slaughter.

Their slain will be thrown out,
their dead bodies will stink;
the mountains will be soaked with their blood.

All the stars in the sky will be dissolved
and the heavens rolled up like a scroll;
all the starry host will fall
like withered leaves from the vine,
like shriveled figs from the fig tree.

My sword has drunk its fill in the heavens;
see, it descends in judgment on Edom,
the people I have totally destroyed.

The sword of the Lord is bathed in blood
it is covered with fat—
the blood of lambs and goats,
fat from the kidneys of rams.
For the Lord has a sacrifice in Bozrah
and a great slaughter in the land of Edom.

And the wild oxen will fall with them,
the bull calves and the great bulls.
Their land will be drenched with blood,
and the dust will be soaked with fat.

For the Lord has a day of vengeance,
a year of retribution, to uphold Zion’s cause.

Edom’s streams will be turned into pitch,
her dust into burning sulfur;
her land will become blazing pitch!

It will not be quenched night or day;
its smoke will rise forever.
From generation to generation it will lie desolate;
no one will ever pass through it again.

The desert owl and screech owl will possess it;
the great owl and the raven will nest there.
God will stretch out over Edom
the measuring line of chaos
and the plumb line of desolation.

Her nobles will have nothing there to be called a kingdom,
all her princes will vanish away.

Thorns will overrun her citadels,
nettles and brambles her strongholds.
She will become a haunt for jackals,
a home for owls.

Desert creatures will meet with hyenas,
and wild goats will bleat to each other;
there the night creatures [Lilith] will also lie down
and find for themselves places of rest.

The owl will nest there and lay eggs,
she will hatch them, and care for her young
under the shadow of her wings;
there also the falcons will gather,
each with its mate.

—  Isaiah 34, 2-15

I was tagged by the amazing adarlansassasssin to do the book royalty tag! <3 I tag momothebookworm, amethystgalathynius, books-booksandmorebooks, and anyone else who would like to do the tag!

anonymous asked:

Ozai abdicated the throne of the Fire Nation freely, and his successor forfeited a legitimate Agni Kai by attacking a bystander. Zuko's succession is 100% legal, especially since Lord Iroh has the strongest blood right to the throne and supports his nephew

If Zuko really is 100% legal, how come he’s never shown us his birth certificate?  Answer THAT!

So this came from one of DB’s livestreams, when we were still talking about lore around a month ago. Someone brought up dark!Roamin and Electricity Man and where that was going, so I made this :3

where was lorde in the bad blood music video literally everyone and their grandma are in it… i thought they were bffs

anonymous asked:

do you love your kids? be honest

            loving your child ( especially to him ) came more naturally than
    breathing. even when your boy looks upon you with malice incomp-
    arable
 ( looking at a murderer: KILLER OF HIS FATHER ), ‘tis pride
    alongside your anger that blooms in your breast. 

            it is only nature for the puppet maker to love his creation in p-
    rogress - for, despite the broken pieces, and misplaced strings, the
    puppet is still his creation. a broken maker, a broken creation, ultim-
    ately destined to walk the same broken path.

           ‘tis also the LOVE that you lose that you love in your children.
    ‘tis the defiance of his padme, the light, and the fire, that paints h-
     is blackened heart with the heavy sting of nostalgia, part fractured.

            he avowed to claim the allegiance of his son, but to what end?
     and for whom was he pursuing the boy, under what title? truly, why
     did he clamber with such desperation to take the child into his hand:
     for his master, or for his lost FAMILY?

                              ❛  i honor fate, and its WORKINGS.
                                       love plays no part in luke’s ultimate DESTINY.  ❜
