You may not realise it right now, but there’ll be a day when you notice my absence with every breath you take, with every beat your heart completes without me by your side. You’ll look for me in all the places that used to be my favourite, you search for me in the streets we used to walk hand in hand, you gently brush your fingertips over letters I sent you, but I won’t be found, not where you used to find me and not in the words I wrote you. You will miss me, no matter if you will recognise the emptiness in your chest for what it is or if you’ll brush it off as a temporary kind of sadness you can’t explain. You’ll miss me, but sadly it’ll be too late.

I was going to listen to The Weeknd’s I Feel It Coming for the rest of the night since it’s my new current obsession but you two just had to remind me how flawless of a song this song is and now I’m going to switch gears and listen to it for the rest of the night instead. 

I hope you’re proud of yourselves.

I would like to submit for your consideration this conversation between Luke and Leia, taken from the Star Wars Radio Dramatization. While they are on the Death Star, taking a moment to rest and hide from Stormtroopers:

Leia: Luke? How’d you get involved in all this?
Luke: It’s sorta complicated. See, R2 wound up on our farm on Tatooine. I found your message when I was cleaning them up. R2 ran off to find Ben and I followed him but Ben found us instead. Then we hired Han to bring us to Alderaan…
Leia: And when you got here, Alderaan was gone. Destroyed.
Luke: You know about that…
Leia: I saw it happen.
Luke: I’m so sorry.
Leia: The important thing now is to see that it never happens again.

Oh look, it’s Luke offering a few words of comfort to Leia about the loss of her homeworld.

Then later, on the Falcon after Obi-Wan has died:

Leia: Luke?
Luke: He just… stood there. Just stood there and let himself be cut down.
Leia: Oh, Luke.
Luke: Why wouldn’t he defend himself?
Leia: I can’t explain it to you, Luke. The Jedi live their lives according to what they believe the Force demands of them, and it’s not always something the rest of us can understand.
Luke: But that still doesn’t explain—
Leia: I know that Ben must have had some reason, some overriding purpose in allowing Darth Vader to take his life.
Luke: Vader? That was Vader who killed him?
Leia: Yes. He’s the one who’s been trying to recover the plans to the Death Star.
Luke: Vader killed my father. Vader betrayed the Jedi and Vader’s troops killed my aunt and uncle!
Leia: Luke, calm down.
Luke: Vader’s taken away everything I ever had! And I ran from him. Don’t you understand that? Vader took away everything I ever had!
Leia: Everything I had too, Luke.
Luke: Alderaan, your whole world, destroyed. How can you live with that? How do you go on?
Leia: You find a purpose. To justify the sacrifice.
Luke: Like Ben did.
Leia: Yes. Mine’s to stop Vader, and Tarkin, and the Empire. I think that’s worthwhile. What about you?
Luke: Yes. I do too. It’s just… Ben seemed like he’d always be there. You know? Like he was the one thing I could always count on. And I…
Leia: What, Luke?
Luke: I thought I heard him. After hew was cut down, I thought I heard him. I was firing at the stormtroopers, and all of a sudden it was as if Ben were at my shoulder, like when he was teaching me to use the lightsaber. He wasn’t in my line of vision, but he was there. Talking to me.
Leia: We were all calling to you, you probably mistook—
Luke: I heard you. And Han. But this was Ben. He said “Run, Luke. Run.” And I did…. I can’t believe he’s gone. I just can’t believe it.
Leia: There was nothing you could have done.

Alien occupation AU

I have looked at this countless times, and this is the first time I’ve realized that you weren’t asking for JOBS aliens could be working. (Law firms, Hollywood, schools, and government would have been my top suggestions.) Anyway…

1. “So far, they haven’t found us. But the others have stopped answering our signals. I think we’re the last ones.”

2. “The worst part is, they look almost human. Almost.”

3. “You’re the last person I expected to find shelter with, you know that?”

4. “The nice ones keep us as pets. We live in their houses, but as long as we embrace them when they come in the room, and act cute whenever they’re around, we’re treated well. Those are only the nice ones, however.”

5. “It wasn’t like the movies. It’s NEVER like the movies.”

6. “I was their prisoner, or so it seemed. The truth was a little more complicated.”

7. “They actually aren’t so bad, generally speaking. Unless they touch you.”

I hope these help!

Hi, I love your writing! Can I get Kuroo with his sweet/shy gf that calls him panther (since he basically is a big black cat in human form) especially since he calls her kitten? Thank you!

Lol, cute little feline couple!

“Kitten,” the first time the name had purred off Kuroo’s tongue caused her to turn brighter than the summer sun in the early afternoon. Her heart had beat faster than she had known possible and her hands gripped tightly at the front of her shirt as she smiled up at him. The name was set in stone and she slowly began to get used to it with its every use, even found herself anticipating it.

She enjoyed the way it became to be her contact name in his phone, a small cat face next to it. She grinned when he would sleepily say the name when he returned home from a late match or practice. She giggled when he cooed the name as they cuddled together late at night trying to stay awake longer than their bodies were allowing. She breathed shakily when the name slipped past his lips in a groan as their bodies connected in the deepest sense of the word.

When his arms wrapped around her from behind, he pressed a small kiss to her cheek. “How’s my Kitten this morning?”

Her hand raised to pat lightly at his cheek, turning to him with a smile. “Fine. How about my Panther?” The term came forward before she even allowed herself to think about it. And she thought it fit him, large and dark, the leading of the cats on the volleyball team. She was proud of herself for coming up with it. And her pride grew ten folds when his face turned to surprise and the pink began to creep up his neck into his cheeks.

Now it was her turn to grin, her turn to amused when his hand rose to cover his warming face. She laughed, pushing herself to her toes to place a kiss to his lips lightly. For a short while, it seemed like she was to have the upper hand, it was nice to see the boy roll over and purr every now and then.

Hey Heather, so I want to own a BP at some point (waiting for my life to settle a bit first) but my girlfriend has pet rats. Of course I would house my BP's tub in a diff room than the cages, but they are in the living room. Ideally I would like to be able to handle my BP in the living room where it would be comfortable to do so, but would it be a large problem? Rats would be on the other side of the room and I would keep clean and NOT handle them the same day, but... not finding much online...

heh… well i keep my r.ats and snakes in the same room and have found no issues. i used to have my entire breeding operation in the same room and the only behavioral difference i found was the snakes will DEFINITELY let you know when they are hungry. This can easily transform into “glass surfing” which is a negative exploratory behavior in which they are searching for food and become stressed.

as long as you wash your hands between handling the r.ats and snake and youre feeding the appropriate size and frequency of prey, you’ll be fine. :)

Founding Fathers age comparison.

In 1776, Benjamin Franklin was 70, George Washington was 44, John Adams was 41, Thomas Jefferson was 33, John Jay was 31, James Madison was 25, Alexander Hamilton was 21 and James Monroe was 18. 


December 14th 1780: Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler marry

On this day in 1780, Founding Father Alexander Hamilton married Elizabeth Schuyler. Hamilton was born to a troubled family in the British West Indies, and moved to America as a teenager for an education. However, as the American colonies teetered on the brink of revolution, Hamilton found himself drawn to the Patriot cause. Soon into the war, Hamtilon became the assistant and adviser to General George Washington. It was during this time that he met and married Elizabeth Schuyler, who came from a prominent New York family. Elizabeth, or Eliza, was known for her sharp wit, and Hamilton was immediately smitten with her. The couple married in 1780, and went on to have eight children. As Hamilton’s career progressed, Eliza was his chief companion and helped him with his political writings. Hamilton was a fierce advocate of a strong central government, penning the majority of the Federalist Papers which supported the ratification of the Constitution, and became the nation’s first Secretary of the Treasury. Hamilton and Schuyler’s marriage was not without its trials; in 1797 the so-called Reynolds Pamphlet was published, revealing Hamilton’s affair with a woman named Maria Reynlds. In 1801, their nineteen-year-old son Philip was killed in a duel defending his father’s honour. Just three years after losing her son, Elizabeth was widowed when Alexander was killed by Aaron Burr in a duel. Elizabeth then devoted her life to philanthropy and preserving Hamiton’s legacy; in 1806, she founded New York’s first private orphanage. By the mid-nineteenth century, Elizabeth was one of the last living links to the revolutionary era, making her a very famous figure. In 1848, during the cornerstone-laying ceremony for the Washington Monument, Elizabeth rode in the procession with President James K. Polk and future presidents James Buchanan, Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson. Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton died in 1854, aged 97, fifty years after her husband’s death.

“With my last idea; I shall cherish the sweet hope of meeting you in a better world. Adieu best of wives and best of Women. Embrace all my darling Children for me.”
- Alexander Hamilton to Elizabeth Schuyler, just days before his death

YOI ep 10 has still got me awed at how amazing this anime has progressed. But one thing that got me really intrigued, is where it was set: Barcelona.

Now, I remember reading a post somewhere (I’ll edit this once I find it) that Kubo-sensei and a friend traveled to Barcelona to look at monuments and places for the anime etc etc

Of course, I checked her IG and I found these gems:
