omg you guys I was just talking to my friend about panic! at the disco because I was wearing one of my concert hoodies and she said “wait is that the band where the guy strips on stage like every night and he used to make out with the other members and stuff??” and I was just thinking holy shit brendon urie has gained panic! the real life general reputation of being a gay stripping sexually deviant whoreish band. what a time to be alive.
What a time to be an Oliciter. What a time to be part of this fandom. Really, it’s a fucking blast. The humor, the love, the joy, the theories - it’s all amazing.
Not surprisingly, my ask box was inundated. I was a little disturbed by some of the responses. It was a lot of negative. A lot of “Well, they are happy now, but it’s all going to go to shit”. Lots of theories of how it could be a dream or Oliver is drugged or Felicity doesn’t want the kiss, it’s not their first kiss, they’ve been banging all summer and we don’t get to see that, someone is going to interrupt them and they won’t really kiss…
Look, I’m a fan of theories and part of the fun is speculating. Speculate away my friends. I just want to remind everyone of one really important thing…
Never shall I forget that smoke. … Never shall I forget those flames that consumed my faith forever. Never shall I forget the nocturnal silence that deprived me for all eternity of the desire to live. Never shall I forget those moments that murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to ashes. Never shall I forget these things, even if I were condemned to live as long as God himself.
Elie Wiesel, Night
All the Dachaus must remain standing. The Dachaus, the Belsens, the Buchenwalds, the Auschwitzes—all of them. They must remain standing because they are a monument to a moment in time when some men decided to turn the earth into a graveyard. Into it they shoveled all of their reason, their logic, their knowledge, but worst of all, their conscience, and the moment we forget this, the moment we cease to be haunted by its remembrance, then we become the gravediggers. Something to dwell on and remember…
Rod Serling, The Twilight Zone, “Deaths-Head Revisited”
When Soviet troops arrived at the Auschwitz concentration camp on the 27th of January, 1945, they found roughly 7,500 living prisoners–most of whom were weak, ill, and starving–and hundreds of corpses. Though the camp remained largely in tact, the retreating S.S. had demolished several buildings, including the gas chambers, in an attempt to hide their crimes. Overall, an estimated 1.1 million people were murdered in Auschwitz between 1940 and 1945, making it the most deadly of all the Nazi concentration and extermination camps. The majority of the victims were Jews.
Auschwitz-Birkenau became a museum in 1947, and the UN appointed January 27th as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Seventy years after its liberation, Auschwitz remains the dominant symbol of the Holocaust

Oh. My. FUCKING. GOD! OH MY GOD! SERIOUS, EVERYONE! THERE ARE JUST NOT ENOUGH WORDS IN THIS WORLD THAT COULD POSSIBLY DESCRIBE THESE GLORIOUS, WONDROUS, AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL FEELINGS THAT I AM FEELING! MY TEARS ARE ONLY THE BEGINNING. BUTTERFLIES. SO MANY BUTTERFLIES. I’M SHAKING. I’M CRYING! But… I can’t go. I can’t afford to fly and stay on the Mainland. I can’t gather that kind of money that quickly. Not in one month. I CAN’T BEAR TO PICK UP THE PIECES OF MY SHATTERED HEART. I’ve waited for this. Three years… WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME..? Someone come and hold me… Please..? Just… *breaks down into uncontrollable sobs*
the wonder years are sort of the only thing I’ve ever found that makes sense to me, and when I met them, I had Dan write “I don’t even know what I’m upset about” for me because when I saw it in the came out swinging music video when it first came out, it was the first time I had ever felt understood, and since then I’ve always used that quote to explain the way I feel and I’ve used it as a motivation towards my recovery. Getting this tattoo was one of the most monumental moments of my life and I have never been more thankful for a group of people and the music they make.
