and he knows whose army it is

John Watson

I’ve been thinking more and more on that line in the I love you trailer “what’s the worst thing…darkest secret” and I think it’s to John not Sherlock. John’s the one whose past we know nothing about and we apparently see a slip in his moral compass. Is it possible something happened in his army days? He ended up doing or covering up something messed up? What about Major Sholto who lead a team of CROWs into battle who all died? Did John have something to do with that? If so, it’s highly likely Culverton Smith was either involved or knows about it. Anyway, I think it’s definitely possible that we’re going to see John reveal his darkest secret, possibly in front of sherlock.
(This is by no means thought through, well put together, or all of my evidence, so feel free to add or dispute anything because it’s literally just my thoughts)

Okay, but imagine Daenerys trying to recruit the Northern Houses to her cause and Lady Lyanna Mormont goes, “The North knows no King (Queen) but the King in the North whose name is Stark.”

And Daenerys tries to talk down to and impress Lyanna with her dragons and her massive army of people (most of whom worship the ground she walks on). She even tries to say that one of her most trusted (noticeably absent) advisors is the noble Ser Jorah Mormont of Bear Island in a vain attempt to win over Lyanna and House Mormont. (But Lyanna is smart and knows full well that Jorah was a shitty person who was exiled for being a slaver - and that he doesn’t show remorse for being a slaver either.)

So Lyanna just does her “How ‘bout you stop talking like seven years ago” Bear Glare and repeats, in that perfect Northern voice, “The North knows no King but the King in the North whose name is Stark.”

peighton mumbled to herself as she weaved in and around the crowds of people. she didn’t even know whose house it belonged to. some friends of hers decided to drag her with them so she could get out a little more. going out wasn’t something she had done in a while. being around so many people was something she stopped enjoying when hudson decided to join the army. nothing was the same without him there with her. he was truly her best friend, her other half. all she needed to do was find the door and get out of there. she didn’t have a car or any money with her for a taxi or a bus, so she planned to just walk. she was sure she’d be able to find her way back to her place, it wasn’t too far. her friends didn’t care anyone, all they wanted was to drink and party. peighton wanted to drink just not around these people. ”fuck—“ she walked dead into someone, stumbling back before catching herself. “seriously??

Happy birthday, Sea!! :D

i told myself i wasn’t going to do AU fanart but then i woke up this morning literally like bUT WHAT IF FIRE EMBLEM???

so imagine:

amnesiac kuroko wakes up and only knows that there is something he wants to protect. so he inevitably joins and becomes the tactician for lord riko (LORD RIKO >:U ) and her army, whose roster includes but is not limited to:

hyuuga and izuki the cavalier pair; wherein izuki makes horse puns and hyuuga is always willing and ready to leap off his horse and take him out

furihata the recruited villager who is wearing a pot on his head for armor

and kagami, newly recruited by promising him tons of food (and adventure)

okay so finally paladin teppei returns from trying to rally men and supplies from a neighboring kingdom and he is initially wary of kuroko who more or less came out of NOWHERE.

but eventually him following him around suspectly becomes him following around kuroko and wanting to carry all his heavy tomes for him, and tend to the campfire for him, and literally protect every person, new and old, in his happy army family.

SOMEONE IS AFTER ARIA... BECAUSE SHE IS A! MY MONEY IS ON...

Okay so literally we know that Aria has a TON of insanely accurate reasons and evidence piled up to her being A. Several different theories that could all be backed up and true. I believe them.

I believe that there is a team that is AGAINST A.

We have seen Paige and Caleb join forces to protect the girls from A. We have seen Mona put together an army before (whose purpose of existence is still fuzzy.) We have also seen Lucas, and Jenna, and Shana, and almost everyone look sketchy in this show. There have been theories about a “AGAINST A” TEAM on the loose. We have even seen a detective and Melissa(who has claimed to be protecting Spencer since it started) join together to push Aria off the train.

I believe there is a new person who knows about Aria being A, and after watching this episode, MY MONEY IS ON ANDREW. He has said some pretty sketchy stuff to her in these past few episodes.
Last we saw of him, he was crushing on Spencer and now all of a sudden he is fascinated with Aria? Makes NO sense.

Also not making a lot of sense, Mike and his connection.
We know from his confession to Aria about The Mona Thing (great nickname in my opinion since we can’t trust all the stories we hear) that he KNOWS ABOUT A. Now he doesn’t know who A is, OR DOES HE? If his story isn’t entirely true(which I believe it is not) then why is he so emotional while he is telling Aria? I think he knows Aria is A and he isn’t coping with it, because he doesn’t want to believe she is capable of that. Also, if you believe the Aria MPD theory, we could make a case that Mike feels bad that Aria doesn’t even know herself, that she is A and is doing all these terrible things. If I found out my sister was not only capable of these things but because of a disorder, doesn’t realize it herself, I would emotional and I wouldn’t know how to cope. I would also be angry with her(which we have seem from Mike.)
We also know how Aria tends to react and how all hell breaks loose for her when one of her family members is involved with anything. She literally looses herself every time. She never wants to accept that her family could have anything to do with anything. And now that her baby bro is dipping his toes in all that Rosewood has to offer, we see her slowly coming undone. We also know she doesn’t want involve the girls in these things until she has resolved them or already dealt with them herself. When she does clue them in, we never hear everything that she told them or didn’t tell them.

All of these things have me believing that there is a group of people trying to sabotage A the best way they know how, making her distracted with her family being in “trouble/danger” . From this episode we see she never told the girls that A tried to “kill” Mike. Maybe that’s why the writers wrote in another “Aria kiss” with Andrew. She had a few seconds to think and she started crying then BOOM a kiss to throw off her trAin of thought(which is funny considering she almost got thrown off a train.) They aren’t clueless to that being a weak, drug out, over told storyline. THEY DID WRITE THIS CRAZY SHOW. The writers are very smart. And they know Aria is only EASILY distracted by two things ALWAYS, her family and love. Why not kill the mockinggirl with the two stones that hit the hardest?

IF IVE LEFT HOLES PLEASE LET ME KNOW. If I made a mistake in my evidence let me know. This is the first time I’ve ever made up my own little theory.

Thus we may know that there are five essentials for victory: (1) He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight. (2) He will win who knows how to handle both superior and inferior forces. (3) He will win whose army is animated by the same spirit throughout all its ranks. (4) He will win who, prepared himself, waits to take the enemy unprepared. (5) He will win who has military capacity and is not interfered with by the sovereign.

A Loyal Heart

For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. 2 Chronicles 16:9

If your heart is loyal to God, you do not have to look for Him, He is already looking for you! God told King Asa that He continuously watches for those who are steadfast in their commitment to Him. When He finds them, He makes His presence powerfully evident to them. King Asa had experienced God’s awesome power when he faced a menacing army from Ethiopia (2 Chron. 14:9). God gave Asa victory, despite the overwhelming odds he faced. In spite of this miracle, the next time Asa faced an enemy he failed to trust God. Even though the army Asa faced was smaller than the one God had previously defeated, Asa’s faith in God faltered. God encouraged Asa to take courage in knowing that God never rests or sleeps. He is never distracted, but diligently seeks individuals whose hearts are completely committed to Him.

Life’s challenges sometimes seem impossible. Do you feel you are too weak to fight the battle? Don’t give up! Keep your heart loyal to God, for He constantly watches over you, and He desires to demonstrate His strength in your life. God is willing and just as capable of giving you victory in your current challenge as He was with those in times past. The question is not whether God is looking for His people, but whether His people are seeking Him. Take comfort in God’s promise that He watches over you and He wants to give you victory.

I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron sceptre ” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Revelation 19:11-16

This is Jesus the next time we’ll see him. 

I’m trying to find the words to describe what’s going on in my head and my heart right now, but I can’t. Just read this slowly. Maybe twice. Because this is Jesus, the one that we read about in the Gospels, when he comes back for us.

Jesus.

I just have so much respect for Steve Rogers. He’s not perfect and he doesn’t try to be. He’s always got an enemy on his back, when all he’s trying to do is save people from the bad. He had his best friend; his brother, die right in front of his eyes all while he couldn’t help and I can only imagine how much blame he’d put on himself. Then to add to that, find out he’s back from the dead after waking up from being frozen yourself, but not as a friend, as an enemy whose mission was to kill him.

What would have happened if Steve hadn’t desired to join the army as much? Would he have lived a normal life without all the pain he’s endured along the way? Would he have children, a family? Would he be happy? What would The Avengers have been without Captain America?

I don’t know how he managed to sleep at night knowing that, but yet that’s not something we ever saw. Maybe Steve didn’t sleep because every time he tried to, he’d be woken up with nightmares that included his best friend falling from a train and being taken away by HYDRA and all the lives he’s lost along the way. And maybe he dreamed that he wasn’t Captain America. That he didn’t have the weight of the world on his shoulders. But that he’d be back home, with his best friend James Buchanan Barnes, because after all, he’s just a kid from Brooklyn.

He’s been knocked down with so much bullshit, but yet he can somehow find the strength to pull his head up and still have faith. And I deeply respect him for that. I just want to give him a hug and tell him everything will be okay.

RA 31 Day Challenge 1. How did you discover Richard? People don’t believe me when I tell them that I lived without a TV for many years of my childhood, so I missed out on a lot of Richard’s work till The Hobbit was released. I couldn’t believe that an actor could bring out Thorin un such a way and I demanded to know more about this man whose talent seemed inhuman. I’ve been hooked on him ever since and have seen nearly everything he’s been in.
