“Analysts disagree about the specific cause of the Centralia fire. Writer David Dekok concluded that it started incident to cleanup of the town landfill. In May 1962, the Centralia Borough Council hired five members of the volunteer fire company to clean up the town landfill, located in an abandoned strip-mine pit next to the Odd Fellows Cemetery just outside the borough limits. This had been done prior to Memorial Day in previous years when the landfill was in a different location.

On May 27, 1962, the firefighters, as they had in the past, set the dump on fire and let it burn for some time. Unlike in previous years, however, the fire was not fully extinguished. An unsealed opening in the pit allowed the fire to enter the labyrinth of abandoned coal mines beneath Centralia.  According to a legend, the Bast Colliery coal fire of 1932 was never fully extinguished. In 1962, it reached the landfill area.

Few homes remain standing in Centralia. Most of the abandoned buildings have been demolished by the Columbia County Redevelopment Authority or reclaimed by nature. At a casual glance, the area now appears to be a field with many paved streets running through it. Some areas are being filled with new-growth forest. The remaining church in the borough, St. Mary’s, holds weekly services on Sunday. It has not yet been directly affected by the fire. The town’s four cemeteries—including one on the hilltop that has smoke rising around and out of it—are maintained in good condition.”

Have some Dear Evan Hansen: "Have you ever felt like nobody was there? Have you ever felt forgotten in the middle of nowhere? Have you ever felt like you could disappear? Like you could fall, and no one, would hear. Well. Let that lonely feeling wash away. Maybe there's a reason to believe you'll be okay. 'Cus when you don't feel strong enough to stand.. you can reach. Reach out your hand. And o-oh. Someone will come runnin' And I kno-ow.. They'll take you home~"

[* But somebody came!]

[* Isn’t that just what happened? You got your fairytale in the end, with dragons and robots, monsters and magic, friendly ghosts and a family who really loved you.]

[* The worst day of your life turned into the best one.]

[* Maybe you’re better off for Mama leaving than you ever would have been if she’d stayed.]

[* What more is there to say?]

[* You’ll be fine. You just need to stop looking back, and start looking forward.]

[* That’s right!]

[* Time to get back to work.]

[* You’ll talk more later.]

[* They weren’t ready for the responsibility.]

this is from a skimmons college au i was working on for femslash feb and then i ended up going with something else?? im not sure, i never wrote past the first page so heres a sample of that

Whoever said taking 8am classes in college would be worth it were wrong?

She would like to go back in time, and find that person, probably the overly cheery orientation leader than had taken one look at Daisy and insisted that morning classes were not only a great way to start the day but also easy because she woke up early every day for the last twelve years of her life for school.

(Not counting summers.)

(Daisy was greatly missing that whole summer thing right about now.)

If she did she would definitely be giving that woman a piece of her mind.

A strongly worded one.

No amount of dining commons coffee made this morning worth it.

Nor did the lackluster dining commons pancakes.

The only thing that really made a difference was the endless supply of bananas.

Well, that and-

“Good morning, Daisy!”

Jemma Simmons.

The only person physically capable of masquerading as a functioning human before noon without even having a cup of coffee. Daisy was pretty sure Jemma wasn’t even human, it’s the only thing that actually made any sense.

Because people that actually enjoyed mornings, well they didn’t exist.

Aliens made way more sense.

“I’m dying,” Daisy says in reply.

send me a shrug emoji or something and i’ll tell you a bit about and give you an excerpt of a fic idea i abandoned ages ago thats just chilling in my google drive

I can’t stop fawning over Charles Fauna and his new single Abandon. You might recognize this Brooklyn singer songwriter’s vocals from Glassio’s Morning House. He makes a compelling solo debut with his first single, a euphoric eruption of radiant soaring synths and sanguine throbbing beats. While Abandon’s name may have initially evoked solitude or desertion, that isn’t the sort of “abandon” Charles Fauna goes for on his sweeping anthem. Instead, he focuses on the idea of abandoning all that you know to embrace new beginnings. We more than embrace this new beginning that is Charles Fauna’s solo career.
