and he knows whose army it is

9

Then again, if I was Sirius, I would have probably utilized that army that I was a part of instead of going after Peter on my own. I mean, I wouldn’t have trusted Dumbledore but you know…there was Remus, Moody, Professor McGonagall, Hagrid, Andromeda, the Weasleys, Frank, Alice, literally an entire army right there, ready to serve, so that I wouldn’t have to run off after my enemy alone, prompting said enemy to kill thirteen people and frame me.

I feel like a lot of Sirius’ problems could have been avoided if he had just put some rational logic into things.

Then again this is the guy whose brother was like, “I shall defeat Voldemort on my own while telling nobody except for him and even then, it’ll be cryptic and I shall be dead!”

Conclusion: The Black Brothers did not belong in Ravenclaw.

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.

Ratbag the Coward

Ratbag the Uruk craves power without knowing what he would do with it. He cannot heft a heavy weapon over his head, but he will, stupidly perhaps, attempt to claw his way to the top of Sauron’s Army by aligning with his people’s great enemy, the Gravewalker.

He has deluded himself into believing the Ranger will help him become a Warchief and, once he has power, he will be able to keep all he has achieved. His many scars bear witness to his ineptitude and history of failure. He is a craven little thing whose only chance of success is in spite of himself.

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.”

Everybodys been posting stuff about Red being tormented by the conflicting voices in his head, but I don’t think of it that way. I prefer to think that we’re an invisible army, standing at his side. Hes a scared little kid whose just been pushed into a world of gangs and monsters. Little do they know that he has an army of 60,000 (or 20,000,000, depending on how you count it) lined up behind him to help. We’re a bit disorganized, but we’re there for him, just as we’ve been for the last 18 years.

Obama boots wedding that had been planned for months so he can play golf

Obama doesn’t care about a silly wedding.  He’s spending millions of taxpayer dollars to play golf in Hawaii, and too bad that some folks planned their wedding on the day he decided to play golf.

from Bloomberg:

Natalie Heimel and her fiancé, Edward Mallue Jr., a pair of captains in the Army, were walking from their wedding rehearsal on Saturday at the 16th tee box at Kaneohe Klipper Golf Course in Hawaii when they were informed they’d have to move their wedding, scheduled for the next day.

President Barack Obama wanted to play through.

It was the second time that day that the couple heard from the nation’s commander in chief, whose affinity for golf has, at times, caused political headaches for the White House. Stationed in Hawaii and knowing the president spends his Christmas holiday on the islands, they invited him to their ceremony on a lark. They had received a letter earlier on Saturday saying Obama regretted he couldn’t come and wishing them happiness on their wedding day.

“It was kind of ironic they got the letter from them and then, within hours, they were told they had to be moved due to him,” Jamie McCarthy, Mallue’s sister, said in an interview. “It was emotional, especially for her—she’s the bride and in less than 24 hours they had to change everything they had planned.”

read the rest

After Bloomberg notified the White House that they were running the story about Obama booting the wedding, Obama personally called the bride in order to save face.  Again…only after the White House knew it was going to be written up in a major news magazine.

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.

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.

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.

A prayer in the dark (Doctor who open)

“I’ve heard rumors in the galaxy, a whisper on the winds if you will about an amazing creature, a humanoid alien who helps others, and they call him The Doctor.  I don’t know if you are real, or just a sand-tale you tell children to keep them hoping.”  

Mika pulled the blanket around himself more and adjusted the light, his sole source of illumination as he worked the ancient radio.  Littered around him were cans of food, empty, they were neatly stacked but when the ship hit any little bit of turbulence they flew in the null gravity.  

“Even if it is, I’ve heard the stories, I don’t need the warrior, the one that can turn entire armies at the sound of his name.  I need the compassionate one whose words heal, and who cares for those who are hurt.  I am far from home, exiled, hungry, and almost out of air.”  

The words were soft.  He didn’t know if the universe itself could hear him, so he was also setting his missive to tape.  He had to keep stopping because his voice had been unused so long, it hurt to speak.  “But if you are out there, please, Please, I could use some hope, and a miracle.  You are my last hope before I join my kin who sleep around me on the outer paths.”  He cleared his throat.  “Doctor, Doctor, doctor.”  Isn’t that how you are supposed to do it?”  He asked idly.  

If you can hear me please, help.”

He hit the send button on the recording and settled down in his little cocoon made of every blanket on the ship, and he was still cold.  The heat had died years ago, and he had no tools or parts to repair it with.

The doorways to this section were sealed with a clear airtight plastic he still had the rebreather in the suit but no food, 

He drifted off to an uncomfortable sleep still saying the Doctor’s name.
