a champion of light and life

10

“There must be both dark and light. I will do what I must to keep the balance, as the balance is what holds all life. There is no good without evil, but evil must not be allowed to flourish. There is passion, yet peace; serenity, yet emotion; chaos, yet order. I am a wielder of the flame; a champion of balance. I am a guardian of life. I am a Gray Jedi.

To the hurt and the broken,


You should know that we are brave because everyday we choose to not give up and end it all, we have won a battle.

Everyday we push through the feelings of hopelessness, we are conquerors.

You are a conqueror!
You are a force to be reckoned with!
You are a champion!
You are not alone!

There is light somewhere at the end. I can’t see it either but I will say it until my heart agrees with it and my circumstances and life accepts it.

Don’t get me wrong, for fandom hijinks I dearly love gamer gremlin team kid sister D.Va.

But I’m also 110% here for fierce Hana Song, who at 16 had the dedication and discipline to become a worldwide eSports champion, who was called from a life of fame and product sponsorships to put her life on the line to protect her country.

18-19 year old Hana who streams her combat, tallies dead omnics like zergling waves, tracks her APM on the battlefield to make herself be the same merciless competitor she was in cyberspace. Hana who knows who she is, loves what she loves, and refused to let the hypermasculine culture of professional eSports or the grim reality of total war take that away from her. Who stubbornly clips a cell phone charm to her light gun and paints her face and MEKA bright pink, wearing her bunny rabbits and bubble gum as both metaphorical and literal armor.

Hana who takes to battle in a giant technological marvel, behind a couple of feet of armored metal, and when the situation calls for it will leap out and detonate it, darting around the field of combat in a bodysuit with a handgun while Widowmaker sneeringly calls her a child. Hana, whose intelligence, tactical prowess and reflexes were charged with replacing the most advanced AI drone system known to man and did it.

Clever, sassy Hana who spends her afternoons off playing with Tracer and Lúcio while weary military veteran Hana spends sleepless nights in the mess hall with Reinhardt and Morrison and a pot of black coffee, quiet stories of fallen comrades and bloody losses and the horrors that haunt all their dreams.

Give me cheeky gremlin D.Va in all her cheesy-powder-coated glory, but goddamn, give me Hana Song too.

anonymous asked:

How each of the DAII companions grieves a Hawke left behind in the fade? romanced and non

Varric: His world comes to a halt. After Bartrand Hawke became like a replacement sibling, a true best friend in every sense. He’s drowning in guilt-  it’s his fault, he knew the Champion should have stayed out of it- and for a long time it looks as though he might drink himself into oblivion. HIs wicked grace deck spends weeks gathering dust and once he does get the urge to write again its very dark. It takes months before he’s back to even a semblance of himself- thanks in great part to the goal of the Inquisition- but in the end going back to Kirkwall is incredibly painful.


Isabela:  She’s subdued for a long time, the loss of a friend heavy in her heart. A glass is raised to the fallen champion in every port and tavern, and should she ever truly acquaire her own fleet the flagship will be named for them.
ROMANCED: The bender that follows Hawke’s death goes down in legends among sailors. In the midst of her grief Isabela is responsible for some truly epic bar fights and tavern brawls, but nothing makes the sorrow lighter. A part of her heart has crumbled- it was worse than when she lost her ship, when her mother sold her without thought, when the Arishok was calling for her blood- and there is no question that it will never heal.


Fenris: Its a true loss. Hawke was a friend- a good friend- and someone who stood up against the evil of the world with him. The world is less bright now, a little smaller, but Fenris swears to himself that he will never forget the Champion.
ROMANCED: There are a few days after Varrics letter arrived that Fenris was incandescantly angry. It had been his first experience with that level of intimacy– he had not loved as a slave, not cherished or remembered or grieved as he now did over his lover. They had been his whole heart but had not been given the chance to lay his own life down in return for theirs. But the anger cannot play bulwark against sorrow for long, and for a long time after he falls back into old -and wine fueled- habits. But if one thing can be said about Hawke it was that he was a good influence, and at the end of it Fenris carries on in his lovers name.


Anders: Its the first time he prays in a long time, but when he gets the news Anders drops to his knees and prays hard that it was painless and that Hawke is at the Makers side. The champion saved them, spared them after the greatest mistake he’d ever made, and it seems only fair that his dear friend gets the same chance at redemtion and peace the mage was given.
ROMANCED: There is no Anders to grieve for Hawke, not anymore. This last and most terrible lost sent both him and Justice over the edge, and the small hamlet he was sheltering in will never forget the time it took a squad of Templars to destroy the Vengeance demon that has destroyed the gentle healers hut.
Merrill: It’s a sad day when Merrill gets the news about her friend, and she sheds tears over it for some time. Hawke was a true friend to her when she needed it, and she prays to the Creators that they find peace. AS long as she is in Kirkwall she keeps their memory alive, and places flowers at their statue periodically.
 ROMANCED:If the Eluvian was not destroyed Merrill works feverishly for  days to try and repair it. Somehow the idea gets in her mind that if she can open the path she can fetch Hawke back, but in the end it is simply useless. Eventually she collapses in exhuasted grief and sobs for hours. She loved the Champion, had never imagined she could love a human to that degree, and losing them was like losing a part of herself.


Aveline: She assembles the guard and calls for a moment of silence the day after she gets the news. So many of them- including herself- owed Hawke their lives and he will be missed greatly. She also swears to herself that she watch over the remaining Hawke sibling if they live, and -though she feels odd and guilty doing it- goes to the small memorial they built from Leandra to tell the woman what happened. It feels right.


ROMANCED: The guards never mention to a soul that their Captain was absent for almost a week. Watches are maintained, complaints taken and reports filed. It’s the only kindness they can offer, and later Aveline will appreciate it. But in the moment she can only cling to what little she has left of Hawke– the smell of him distant on their pillows, the few pieces of clothing left in the mansion, the letters he’d written her over the ten years they’d been both friends and lovers. It hurts- more even than losing Wesley had- and it takes years before she can get up every morning and not reach for him first.


Sebastian: He lights a candle for them in the Starkhaven chantry every day and prays for their soul. He knows the Maker is kind, knows there is a plan, but it is hard to recognize it sometimes. He also tries to be a comfort to those friends left behind and keep the Champions memory alive in good works as Hawke did.
ROMANCED: His family, his faith, his future. All have been robbed from him and for the second in his life Sebastian purposefully walked away from the Maker. He throws himself into his city- now bereft of its princess- and in helping the Inquisition and all Hawke gave her life for. Its better than dwelling on the burning grief and anger is his gut, and he does everything he can to keep a strong face before his people. But at night he sobs for her, wishing bitterly for the comfort of a Maker that he no longer believes in and for a world were the best people were not lost.


Carver: He’s angry. He’s so angry and so sad and it has nowhere to go. So much time was wasted resenting his sibling- who he always knew loved him and protected him to the best of their ability- and now they are gone. All he has left now are the Wardens or the Templars, and even after so many years gone he wishes desperately for Bethany and his mother.


Bethany: She weeps for days after the letter arrives. Her sibling deserved better. Her family deserved better, and for a long time it takes everything she has to fight off the despair demons haunting her sleep. If she is a Warden then Aveline is a great comfort, but if she has been living as an apostate than it is harder. She can only hope that the rest of her family are safe at the Maker’s side and that someday she will see them again.

Royals (Chlonath Week Day 1: Bickering/Flirting)

(Some context: this takes place in the same universe as my Sweater Weather piece where a new supervillian cadre emerges after Hawkmoth’s defeat in three major world cities. Alya and Adrien stayed in Paris, Nino and Marinette moved to New York, and Nathanael and Chloe moved to Tokyo.)


When Nathanael was sketching out his post-secondary education plans, he had a number of ideas as to where his life would take him. But for all his life could have been, he never thought that it would involve:

1) Becoming Hawkmoth, or at least a newly rehabilitated version of Hawkmoth.

2) Moving to Japan.

3) Shacking up with Chloe Bourgeois as they did battle with a monster that could literally bring someone’s nightmares to life.

But life, apparently, didn’t give a shit about what Nathanael Kurtzberg wanted, which is why he was sitting in a park halfway across the world while a crowd of screaming people rushed past him.

The Mountain Goats - The Legend Of Chavo Guerrero
[2015]

Chavo Guerrero, Sr. has died. Champ, when we met, you were gracious, kind, open, & giving. It has been an honor over the past few years, to be in touch with you - to hear from you at holidays, to see what a true champion you were in life. I will miss you so so much. - The Mountain Goats

Lyrics:

Born down in El Paso where the tumbleweeds blow
To the middleweight champ of all of Mexico
Dad fought many bloody battles and raised four sons
Chavo was the oldest one
Old man Gory could pop like a live grenade
Raised his boys in the way of the trade
Hector and Mando, young Eddie G
Chavo meant the most to me

[Chorus:]
Look high, it’s my last hope
Chavo Guerrero coming off the top rope!

He came from Texas seeking fortune and fame
Rose pretty quickly to the top of his game
Defender of the downtrodden, king of the hill
Tag-team champion with Al Madril
Before a black and white TV in the middle of the night
I’m lying on the floor, I’m bathed in blue light
With the telecast in Spanish, I can understand some
And I need justice in my life, here it comes

[Chorus]

Red Shoes Dugan
Holding his arm high all out of breath
I hated all of Chavo’s enemies
I would pray nightly for their death
Descending like fire
On the people who deserved it most
Always completely unknown
Outside of Texas and the West Coast

He was my hero back when I was a kid
You let me down but Chavo never once did
You called him names to try to get beneath my skin
Now your ashes are scattered on the wind
I heard his son got famous, he went nationwide
Coast-to-coast with his dad by his side
I don’t know if that’s true but I’ve been told
It’s real sweet to grow old

[Chorus]

anonymous asked:

The funny thing about the Pelor/Keyleth thing to me was that it didn't (just) feel like Matt trying to redirect it (not like Vax's conversation with RQ, where it felt like he was trying to get Vax to use certain words). It also felt genuinely in-game, too, it felt like Pelor had a preference, not just a storyteller's imposition on characters. To me at least. I love this shit.

oh yeah I for sure felt like it was a narrative thing not just Matt Being A DM™ like. there’s just enough reason for Keyleth to step forward (her connection with the sun tree, it being expected of her as a leader, that sort of “well what else are we supposed to do” desperation) but still the underlying understanding that this is Vex’s calling as Mistress of the Hunt, as Lady of Whitestone, as the one who has never quite been able to step forward and declare herself worthy (but she is, by the gods she is)

also, can I just say I love love love this new twin imagery of one being the white-cloaked Champion of the god of light and life and the other being the raven Champion to the goddess of fate and death

DAY 3460

~Jalsa, Mumbai                 Sept 17/18,  2017               Sun/Mon 12:19 PM




Birthday - EF Viral ,        September 18, 2017    .. wished to you Viral for this new year and our love to you for endless years .. from the Ef 



When the battle is fought and won .. when the hurly burly’s done .. then does the essence of incense, drift pass the structures that abide in humans and in wonder do we ask .. how on earth did this happen or take place ..

We have no answers .. we have no doubts .. we have no indicators or sites that provide help .. we are as we are, alone and thirsty for more .. it is hoped it shall happen, soon .. very soon 

BUT for that there shall always be a break from the collecting of photographs, and moments captured by others .. a blessing really because we do not have  record of posterity, neither do we possess its temperament ..  we are blessed that we do not have any anxiety about it, and so we move on as the saying goes .. the damage be damned !

NO the damage shall not be dammed .. it shall prosper and survive and teach lessons to them, that are of different abilities .. until finally the system takes over ..


However, or whatever the results may be .. there is no escaping the fact, that it has been a Sunday, and the Sunday meeting with the well wishers is most important and of great visible value :

I am of course in great humbling from all this and should urge you to come over, even if it be for a short stay ..

NO .. impossible .. just impossible .. my schedules shall never permit this to happen .. so ..

… so we acknowledge the presence and fact and turn another page to fresh horizons and better environs .. better environs is more likely  …  

When PV Sindhu becomes the first Indian woman to beat her adversary in a  Badminton Champion series .. when India beats Australia hollow in the first ODI cricket, when Jaipur beats Delhi in Kabaddi terms and conditions .. it is time to look at life in a different light .. and put India and the country in a position of some standing and pride .. 

Sports in India has been often looked upon as infra dig .. not worthy of praise and connect .. but that was then , now it is different .. different because the nation has prayed enough for its success in this mission, and there are still some legendary exercise and gym attachments for me to be able to make personal judgement ..

YOU’RE THE MASTER .. YOU ARE SUPERB AND filled with the essence of what is good for me ..

bring me to learning then of different languages .. of music and the strings of those delighted instruments .. to play instrument, to sing the proper chords and to be able to bring all of that closer to the imagery of my Father .. !!


 … and the entire episode be filled with great information and some documentation .. for the next gen .. and for those that feel left out and of complain in their solitude ..

Released and having seen it to its general conditions  … it would be a first of many such more, but the inclination towards covering large areas of shops and eateries, and moving on to greener pastures, where the postures .. shall abound and invade .. invade little children .. yes alright !! 

RIGHT ..        

अब बहस कौन करे  …  और वो भी अपनो के लिए 


Good night

I need a hero. I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the end of the night.
He’s gotta be strong and he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight.
I need a hero. I’m holding out for a hero 'til the morning light.
He’s gotta be sure and it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life!
Larger than life.

The Patriots.  They’ve won five titles under the greatest quarterback of all time, and are undoubtedly the most dominant franchise in all of sports.  These are the sounds of their game.
