Found out this afternoon that my Dad is being bought home on a flight Thursday night coming into Heathrow then will be bought to the funeral home on Friday. So it’s final. Not a dream or bad nightmare. I still wish there would be a knock on the door and Dad be there, waving at us wanting to come in. But he won’t ever. The NHS came today to take away his commode and walking frame. He really has gone. Friday afternoon Mum and I are going to the funeral home to start arranging the funeral. I need to be strong for this but I just wish I could curl up into a ball and stay there. So hold onto your loved ones everyone because you think you have years with them but you don’t.
Do you think borzoi (particularly yours) could make good service dogs?
Depends on what you want them to do. My dogs have nice temperaments and they will work for their owners in certain things but most of them are very prey driven. That is what I breed for along with temperament and conformation. I want a dog that can preform on the field as well as the ring, then go home and live as a loving house dog. Prey drive can only be suppressed so much, and it’s had to say if they will work until they are older. Because they are a sensitive breed their personalities can change due to a bad experience or a breeder that doesn’t take a good temperament into consideration while breeding. So an ESA they can be great, as a therapy dog they are wonderful but as an actual service dog…I always say no.
You struggle against the tight hold of the rope tied around your hands and legs. You were kidnapped about an hour ago and the kidnapper had asked Negan for a ransom. You knew Louis was coming but you really wish you didn’t cause him so much trouble.
The kidnapper was one of Negans men who wanted more power so he thought by taking you , that would force Negan to give them lots of supplies and power.
You didn’t understand why he thought you were so important since Negan just Kidnapped you from your home in Alexandre.
“Mmmph.” You try to speak but the duct tape around your mouth prevents you from doing so.
“Hey! Shut the hell up bitch!” Your kidnapper shouts at you.
“Mmmmph!” You try again. Immediately, your kidnapper has a knife at your neck.
“Do that again and I’ll have no choice but to kill you.”
He hisses threateningly which shuts you up. After what seems like forever, Negan finally arrives.
“Here’s the supplies you asked for, let Y/N go.” He says in his authoritative voice.
The kidnapper takes the bag and unties the ropes. While he is doing this, Negan picks up his bat that was lying nearby and whacks the kidnapper’s head with it, successfully knocking him out.
Negan unties the rest of the ropes and the two of you run out of the little house you were in. You lock the door from outside while Negan calls the rest of his men.
“Are you okay?” He asks you once he has called his men.
“Yeah. Thanks a lot. I’m sorry you had to lose so much supplies because of me.” You look away.
“I’m always there for you and don’t worry, that bag was filled with paper.” He confesses.
You look up at him in shock and admiration before the two of you burst out laughing.
“And I’d always save you because I’m BIG BAD NEGAN!” He jokes.
Aries: You can’t hide in trauma forever. I know, it’s tempting. Calling your name out to you. Begging you to use it as an excuse to go back to every hold habit you tried so hard to kick. Eventually you have to stop hiding under covers and face what your world looks like now.
Taurus: You’re not invisible I promise. People are watching. Ever vigilant should the dark thoughts come back. All you have to do is ask for us, and we will come. We will come even if you don’t ask, but we see the smoke of everything burning. It’s okay. You have not been forgotten.
Gemini: Take a breath. You’re not at war anymore. There is no more battles to wage. You have won them all. Smile and sit back. Enjoy the victory. You have earned it. No one cares what you did to win. We just care that you came back home.
Cancer: Stop letting their words dictate your future. You’re worth more then that. More then what those small fools can see. I know you don’t know if you can believe me. But I promise you, you are meant for bigger and better things. You just have to be willing to want it.
Leo: Stop running. Whatever was chasing you lost your scent long ago. I know you think it’s the only thing you can do anymore, but stop. Learn to let the world stand still without being scared. It’s okay now.
Virgo :Don’t let the darkness back in. It comes around for you this time of year like clockwork. Do not let it come back in. Do not use this time as an excuse. You are so much better than this bullshit that surrounds you.
Libra: You can’t ever go back, as much as you want to. Don’t loose out on what’s happening now just because you’re mourning and missing what could of been. Lift up your gaze and try and smile. You’ll only get a moment like this once.
Scorpio:Stop using their words as an excuse to hate what you see in the mirror. They don’t know you. Stop trying to destroy yourself when it’s so much easier to make repairs. I know it’s scary, but you are worth saving.
Sagittarius: It’s okay to start over. It’s okay to begin again. I know it’s terrifying. But you will never get anywhere if you just stay standing perfectly still. The first steps always the hardest.
Capricorn: Don’t forget who you were, or you’ll forget the lessons it taught you. Don’t try and erase your past. Show your scars off, you earned those fuckers. You’re still standing. That’s something to be proud of.
Aquarius: I know it hurts more then you think you can manage. But here’s the shocker, you are managing. You are getting up every day despite all of it. Don’t focus on tomorrow. Just focus on getting through the next 5 minutes. Because that’s really all you need.
Pisces: Not doing something because you’re scared of ruining it is a sorry excuse, and you know it. Nothing is as fragile as you give it credit for. You are not some bull in a china shop. You are safe here. Don’t be scared.
“Don’t politicize this” people can shove it up their collective chambers, I got desensitized to this stuff after Virginia Tech, everything after Pulse has just been me saying “So are we actually going to do something NOW?” because honestly I’m sick and tired of this.
The second amendment is broken.
The Founding Fathers didn’t think that we’d be stupid enough to A. Make weapons powerful enough for one man to murder twenty people and injure a hundred others and B. Not pass laws limiting these things. They wanted every man to have his own musket, his own pistol, his own weapons of self-defense that he can brandish at an oncoming mob and say “Which one of you wants it?” while being fully aware that he’s only going to take down one of them, and hope that the mob thinks the same and says “Well I don’t want it to be me or my buddy, so let’s just go home”. That’s what they wanted. Not this. Never this.
The Bill of Rights was established so that people didn’t have to be afraid of assembly. It was established so that they could trust their fellow man. People needed to be sure that what they read in the paper was correct and honest, and that they should not be afraid of soldiers or policemen intimidating them. That’s what the Bill of Rights is supposed to do.
And constantly, time and time again, people have used it to justify the terror and horror that is perpetuated by American citizens.
I’m sick of it. And don’t come at me for “politicizing” this, because this is already a political issue. It’s been a political issue. Every massacre that follows these debates is simply another reminder that we still haven’t fixed the problem.
The sad thing is that the next failure, statistically speaking, will probably be within the next two weeks. Someone else is going to die…and we know our leaders aren’t going to do anything about it.
I want to talk for a sec about something that struck me as odd in episode 3
“A few hundred more souls looking for a new home” “A few hundred more soldiers in the fight against the Galra”
That is a weird line coming from Shiro, not gonna lie. These are refugees they’re talking about, the majority of them probably just regular civilians with no military training. And
Shiro’s here assuming they’re all going to join the war effort?
Yeah, I’m sure some of them will choose to join the fight, do what they can to overthrow the Galra and take back their homes, but I imagine a lot of them would prefer to live quietly on Olkarion. And who could blame them? They’ve been displaced by the Galra; if they’re coming to Olkarion that probably means their homes have been destroyed, they have very few possessions and in many cases have probably also lost family members or are injured and need care. A lot of them are probably also traumatized by what they’ve been through/what they’ve witnessed. Refugees typically are just looking for stability, a safe place to live, a chance to rebuild their lives far away from war and oppression. Not looking to join an army.
I mean look at them
Old, worn clothing, some of them hunched over, tired, a mix of old and young. These aren’t soldiers. Coran is treating those people like they should be treated: simple refugees looking for safety. Shiro? He’s treating them like… pawns? Or something? Also note that Shiro is never shown directly helping these people, we only see Allura, Hunk, Lance and Pidge.
This implicit assumption on Shiro’s part that all refugees will join the fight is in direct opposition to what he told Keith in season 1
“That’s not how a team works. People have to want to be a part of it. They can’t be forced”
Is Shiro really so desperate for allies that he’ll draft refugees into the war effort without a second thought? He’s seen how big, how powerful the Galra empire is, and he sees how big the Coalition is and he doesn’t like their odds so he’s pulling resources from everywhere he can think? Or could there be something deeper at play here?
I know that after natural disasters, the most common things to report are the casualties, the damage caused, etc. etc., but I’d like to take a moment to talk about how incredible the response has been by civilians, people who don’t have any obligation whatsover, but just want to help.
I was at a collection center today, and the amount of people there was insane. Everybody just wanted to help in any way they could. The Red Cross has actually asked people to stop volunteering in some places because so many have offered to help. Blood banks at full capacity, pharmacies that don’t have anything left to sell because people have bought everything, collection centers closing because they have received so many supplies.
This is Mexico.
Over 1000 collection centers full overnight, people offering their homes, hospitals taking patients without charging them, doctors working double shifts, hotels letting people who lost their homes stay without a fee.
People forming human chains to clear the debris from collapsed buildings
Restaurants and small businesses offering free lunches & meals for the rescuers & volunteers.
People staying up all night to help with search and rescue, while singing “Cielito Lindo”.
So today, more than ever, I’m so proud to call myself a Mexican. Fuerza México, hoy más que nunca, canta y no llores.
Summary: It’s 1993 and the summer from many years ago is dead and gone. Many have drifted apart from the Losers club and its at the point where there is no club at all. The atmosphere is cold just like the winter months and the only blushes to be found are the ones that are caused from the piercing spikes of cold that heat skin up. Being a teenage boy is hard; especially for the two boys that now count each other as strangers. In which both boys make a plan, but both disrupt each others.
Warning(s): Depression, angst and fluff throughout the whole series, suicide attempt
A/N: Im so happy at how much support part 1 got?? Thankyou all so so so fucking much ily all also!! credit to @finn-got-tall for an idea in one of the scenes!! (I wont reveal which scene bc i want people to just read) but ty lovely
Eddie and Richie blinked at each other, stunned to see one another in such a strange coincidence. Eddie still had his hand up, but Richie still hadn’t took it. Richie merely brought his hand up that held the cigarette, taking a drag and allowing the toxic waste to decay against his lungs. Eddie visibly cringed at the sight, but stayed silent; he only continued to watch in hope that Richie would somehow step down. Richie took away the small stick, blowing the smoke out slowly and staring at Eddie through his large obnoxious eye glasses.
“Why are you here, Eds?” Richie asked, as if a day hadn’t passed since they last talked.
She literally became a vigilante to keep batman from destroying her villainous dad
Her dad is an asshole
Her mom tried her best
But not good enough that she turns to a man who dresses like a bat nightly for a parental figure
Imagine the batfam having a movie night
Literally her and babs being the only ones who aren’t adopted
Anyways so they’re watching some 90s live action Disney movie her and Dick picked out
And she starts talking about how she always wanted like a bedazzler hair gun or a Barbie dream house or a bike
And babs is shook
Steph tells them she made her own paper dolls out of cardboard and paper
Bitch made her own suit she is crafty
Dick is trying not to cry
Jason and Cass are sympathetic they had very little until they were adopted
Damian is just confused because he’s a murder cult prince and has had more than most successful adults his entire life
Bruce is litterLY HEARTBROKEN
The next day they all haul ass to the mall
Babs in the lead getting all the 90s inspired fashion stuff from Clair’s and JP and Macies like Barbie sweaters and printed leggings and 90s cartoon print everything and fucking leg warmers and scrunchies.
Dick in the lead with 90 to early 2000 toys getting her all the Barbie shit and like a hair braiding and bedazzling gun and like orbez spa foot bath and fun little outside toys like a bubble machine and those hotch skotch balls that you put on one foot and spin the ball as you jump. Too many water and nerf guns. Some of those are for the whole family.
A PURPLE BIKE WITH STREAMERS A BASKET AND A BELL
They put a batman sticker on it
They also buy a twister mat and box sets of the Amanda show, Drake and josh, rugrats, catdog, pinky and the brain, ducktales, Kim possible, Hannah Montana, zoey 101, fresh prince of bel air, friends, honey they get it all
They also get damian some batman toys because he was looking at them
He says he doesn’t want them
But they all mysteriously disappear anyways
Into his room
Cass and Tim drag Bruce for not giving Steph attention
Especially bc she I dunno gee DIED FOR HIM
Anyways Jason and Alfred are distracting her by making cute little batfam themed sugar cookies together
Then they come home with like two car fulls of 90s kids stuff
Jason takes her to Starbucks and they sit outside and talk shit about people passing by so they can set up her surprise party
Now Bruce is an emotionally constipated dad, but he’s still a dad. He still sees Steph as one of his children.
He feels really bad for not paying more attention to her living situation, especially when she was kid.
He pulls out all the stops. Her favorite food, her favorite movies.
Now, mama brown didn’t raise no bitch
But when she walks in and sees that Barbie dream house and that bike
She looses it
She’s crying and hugging everybody
Like she’s grown and doesn’t need any of that
But she makes it some aesthetic artsy deco shit
Except the clothes and nerf guns and box sets that’s becomes her everything
The bike is her new love she might’ve rode it inside the manor until Alfred was like ok stop
She’s so shook
Everybody is crying
Damian is just confused in his little batman target pajamas
Which also makes her extremely happy
She plays with her toys with everybody
They end up cuddling on the couch with Steph in Barbie sweater and those weird multiple shapes neon leggings and leg warmer and her hair in scrunchies
“Brown, you look disgraceful. I don’t understand any of this.”
“Shut up, demon. You’re not supposed to understand, it’s the 90s.”
Tim just silently pulls him into a cuddle and he’s too shook from the day to pull away
Steph is still crying and thanking everybody constantly
She’s snuggled into Bruce’s side.

No one knew Eddie Kaspbrak better than himself. Even his closest friends didn’t know who he really was, who he wanted to be, who he wished he could be. But then Richie Tozier came along, with his wild hair, passion for film making, and annoying talent of making Eddie’s heart beat faster than normal, and he finally found someone who knew him better than he knew himself. And that scared the shit out of him.
okay okay so @exceededexpectations and I were talking about the losers club and we got too carried away; you’re welcome
Mike, Bill, Richie, and Bev don’t sleep with tops on. Ben doesn’t sleep with pants on. Stan owns like 5 pairs of matching pajama sets.
When Richie and Eddie first start to date, Richie starts to wear tops to bed because that is the only way Eddie would cuddle. Even when Eddie isn’t there, he starts to sleep in tops because it reminds him of Eds.
Richie and Bev are 100% bffs and always have sleepovers. When it is just them they don’t bother with clothes because they don’t care about seeing each other naked.
Richie has seen Bev naked more times than Ben has tbh.
Everyone has seen Richie naked on many different occasions.
The first thing they did after killing pennywise was go swimming at the quarry to clean themselves. At this point, they had been through so much together that they just wanted to be normal kids so they just went skinny dipping.
After IT happened the Barrons stopped being where they would hang out. They did start going to the quarry a lot more and they built a treehouse at mikes farm which they would go to on the weekends.
Bev moves in with Richie a couple weeks after IT happened because his parents don’t care and they have a spare room anyway?! But she ends up in Richie’s room so much that they just bring the other bed into Riche’s and it makes his single bed a double. This makes a few problems down the road when Richie and Eddie start dating because ‘No Richie we cannot make out, Beverly is sleeping right there!!’ Richie talked to Bev about it and she said she would either spend the night at Bens if they wanted her to because she is a good friend and understands that Eds is small and awkward and doesn’t know how dating works. She does make sure she gets all of the details from Richie the next night!
Richie has ADHD so Eddie brings him calming tea like peppermint or chamomile. When Richie first drank it he really didn’t like it but he really likes Eds so he drank it. Eddie brought him tea every day after that and now Richie can’t go a day without drinking it.
Bev brings Ben granola bars so that he can not just eat salad when he tries to get fitter. Bill joins the track team with him all throughout high school so that Ben had someone to support him.
No one moves away, Mike goes to high school with the rest of the losers and becomes the biggest jock ever. He doesn’t turn into a massive dick-bag like the other jocks.
Ben and Stan lead a book club every week for the whole school and even teachers turn up because bless those boys. Richie and Eddie want to be good friends so they go to the first meeting. Everyone got really angry with them though and they are no longer allowed to go.
Every teacher both loathe and lives Richie Tozier because he’s fun but also a dick and they all ship Reddie because yes. Richie has a secret meeting with the Spanish teacher where they talk shit and drink coffee (unbeknownst to Eddie) every Wednesday.
Bev, Richie, and Stan sit behind the school in Ritchie’s shitty car and smoke during lunch and then join the rest of the losers who sit on the field to watch mikes practices and they make daisy chains and have grass fights because they are children. Stan started smoking after IT happened because he couldn’t deal with it.
Stan is so fucking good at making flower crowns and he makes them from all of the losers but mostly Bill because you give flowers to the person you like, right?
When Stan gives Richie flower crowns Eddie has to spend the next few days picking daisy petals out because Richie’s hair is such a mess and they get stuck. He does try to wash them out but it never works.
Ben is really good at braiding hair, no one knows how he just is. Beverly grows her hair out a little longer because she loves when Ben plays with her hair. He does something different to it nearly every lunchtime.
One lunchtime Richie dared Eddie to go grab the football from Mike, no one thinks he’ll do it, but he does and then he has to join the football team because not only does he get the ball from Mike but he keeps it away from the whole team and scores a goal earing a loud cheer from the other losers.
Mrs. K hates that Eddie started to play football because he could get hurt and get an infection. ‘You’re allergic to grass, Eddie. You can’t go out there!’ Honestly, fuck off let Eddie doing something for himself for once, football won’t kill him.
When Eddie makes the team he gives Richie his team jacket. Richie never takes it off because he loves his boyfriend and he wants everyone to know! Richie goes to every single football game because he really loves watching his boyfriend be happy (and Mike).
Sometimes all of the losers can go to the football game and they make signs. Every sign is either really fucking cute or it is a shitposting meme. This makes Eddie and Mike so happy and they try extra hard to win. Mike takes all of the signs home and puts them in the treehouse.
They all just become normal children who deal with depression and anxiety but they are all there for each other and there is no dumb dancing clown anymore just love and happiness!
If you want more, then just request it? This was really fun and I will honestly write about anything if it is to do with my children!
❝You’ve been promised to Taehyung since you were seven and he’s hated you since. Nothing could possibly change that fact, not when you’ve all but stolen his freedom by simply existing. Or so he thought.❞
warnings: this is horribly historically inaccurate. pls. don’t read if you like know shit because you’re just in for a wild ride. also. this is like, borderline sucky because its rushed and im lazy but yah
