and we all know how hard it will be

If someone just feels condemned when they talk to Christians and loved by unbelievers then is it any wonder when they reject Christ?

I’m not saying we shouldn’t call sin a sin, not by any means, but man, we need to make sure people know how loved they are.

just dropping by to say, i love you and thank you for everything you'v done and are doing for this fandom and for Bangtan, seriously i need bangtan to meet you and just know how hard you work to spread the love

thanks anon!! ♥ it’s so nice of you to send me this msg~ I think we all need to meet bangtan then~ hehe! I honestly don’t know what to say when I get to meet them.

when I decided to get into bangtan in the beginning… I got so frustrated why not more people are into them when they’re so hardworking and they’re really sincere with their work. And their music and performances are amazing and I just really wanted for more people to take notice and give them love!! So I made this blog and worked hard into helping other ARMYs help them~ bcoz that’s really the goal! by helping other ARMYs I get to help Bangtan too and have more people love them too~ though I wished I had more time to be on here though ;_; real life is in the way~

anyways thanks again anon!! and I hope you have a great day~

imagine jungkook watching yoongi from afar with his new boyfriend, taehyung. jungkook could only wonder where everything went wrong for yoongi to leave him. well okay, maybe jungkook kinda knows that he’s been too self-absorbed that he forgot what yoongi needed during their difficult time together but what can he do now? it’s too late for everything so all he can do is wish for yoongi’s happiness while he suffer, because no matter how hard he tries, he will never be able to move on from him.

what are some positive messages you have for clace supporters? right now things are looking super shitty and i'm looking for encouragement. this cl!m0n plot line is so unnecessary >.<

Yes. I totally get you. I think you have to remember that clace is a slow burn & just enjoy the small moments like those intense looks from Clary to Jace at the end of 2.08 or how absolutely pure & selfless Jace’s love for Clary really is.

I know it’s hard but I believe but all of this is building to what I think will be an amazing 2B with tons of the clace scenes we’ve been longing for.

Hello darling~! Your blog is so wonderful and thanks again for that shout out. <3 So I was wondering, for those requests, could I have a gif imagine of Kisame finding out his s/o is pregnant with his child? I hope that will be okay and it's specific enough. If you can't do it (I know finding gifs can be hard), it's totally fine! But you know how much I love Kisame and after your earlier request, I'm craving this~ Mwuah, thanks sugar~!

Hello, Ama-san! Thank you so much for requesting this!! You’re doing us both a huge favour, haha! This man needs all the love, and we’ll work together to give him some :P

That is, in fact, exactly the format which I need requests to be, so thank you for that :) I really hope you enjoy this, dearie!

(If you should find any typos or grammar mistakes, please let me know! English isn’t my first language, and I am actually looking for a beta reader! Anyone interested?)

Kisame finding out his s/o is pregnant with his child.

Gif Credit.

Kisame knows something is eating at her, and he’s known it for several days now. At first, he thought she was just having a bit of a hard time, but after days her avoiding him, he knows it’s more than this.

He knows her well - they have been together for a while after all. But this behaviour is new to him. She seems so nervous around him, but as soon as she thinks he’s out of reach, he can hear her humming to herself.

And it worries him. In his mind, he’s going through everything he might have done wrong. Had he upset her, somehow? Insulted her? Was she giving him the cold shoulder, or hiding something from him?

Her honesty was one of his favourite traits on her, so why was she being so secretive?

He endures the changes for a week. But when he wakes up late at night again because she’s not sleeping beside him, he decides he needs to know what’s going on..

What is she hiding? And why?

The questions don’t leave his mind, so this time he doesn’t go back to sleep right away, and instead climbs out of bed and heads out to find his girlfriend. And when he finds her, he can’t help but laugh. Really, he laughs out loud, and startles her so much that she drops the ramen she’s made for herself.

“Food cravings? Really? That’s what you’re avoiding me for?”

“I’m not avoiding you!” she claims, way too quickly. Kisame can see how shocked she is to see him. Obviously, there has to be more to it then her craving ramen in the middle of the night.

“Ah, but you are.” he says and kneels down in front of her, beginning to clean up the mess she’s created. After a few seconds, she kneels down as well, and together they quietly clean up. And for the first time in years, there’s an awkward silence between them.

Once the ground is clean again, they both stand, and Kisame gazes down at his beloved. Fear fills him, but he tries to ignore it.

“Hey,” he calls softly, “Are we alright? Is it something I did?”

She looks up at him, and he can see the uncertainty in her eyes. He takes her hand, and pulls her a little closer.

They’re quiet for another moment, before she slowly begins to smile.

“Actually… It kind of is. It’s all your fault.”

Kisame frowns, the smile on her face throwing him off. Was that really something to smile about? What had he done?!

His girlfriend bites her lip, obviously trying not to grin too much, and says, “I mean, you’re in charge of buying condoms, aren’t you?”

Silence.

Then, he takes a deep breath, staring at her without moving so much as a muscle.

“…What?”

Now she giggles, this heavenly sound that always puts him at ease filling his head. But he’s still too shocked, too confused to react.

“Kisame, gosh…” she begins, her smile looking a little embarressed, shy. “I didn’t want to tell you like this, really. But… I’m pregnant.”

“Pregnant.” he repeats, still dumbfounded, “We’re having…?”

“A baby, yes. I didn’t know how to tell you. I am sorry if I wor-”

She’s cut off by him pulling her close. He holds her gently, and she sighs softly, burying her face in his chest. She can’t see his expression, but she can hear his heart racing, and the way his arms stroke over her back tells her that she was worried over nothing. He is happy. She can feel it. Why was she so scared of his reaction? Her thoughts are cut short when she hears him speak.

“Thank you… so much.”

I love GOT7. I really do. I want everything they wished for to come true and I want them to have the best, fulfilling life ever, but this little selfish part of me wished that they weren't getting more popular. They were like this amazing little secret that was kept underground. I would never do anything to get in the way of their fame, and I know it's stupid, and maybe inexplainable, but do you ever get this feeling?

Hi dear, 

Hmmm I never have that feeling because I really want them to get well known especially for their talents because they deserved it. They worked hard for it and I think we as fans should cheer them on and support them especially their career because this is their dream and I know it’s hard sometimes to some of us but I’m sure all of us want our boys to be happy right? I’m sure it just a phase what you felt right now and I’m sure this feeling will go slowly especially when you see how happy our boys are with their achievements.  (◕‿◕)

Lets analyze this photo shall we.

J-Hope: Fuck. Yes. Fuck. Me

V: too scared to reach for the fun spot. Pussy.

Kookie: place the hand down gently and nobody gets hurt.

Rap Mon: You can do it Namjoon, you can do it, stick the landing, stick the- fuck, too hard Namjoon, you stuck it too hard.

Jimin: time to give these peeps a heart attack. Penis grab engaged. Shit. Penis grab missed. Fuck it. Belt grab engaged.

Suga: how about instead of grabbing it, I just thrust it, really hard.

Jin: it’s okay jin, we all know you’re not the dancer. Your hubby had enough crotch grab for the both of you.

Love Live Irene Adler

I love it when Irene comes up, because Irene is the embodiment of Sherlock’s sexuality. She’s the question that he tries very hard to ignore. She is the road not taken, but a road he could still take, possibly, if he wanted to. When Irene pops up, it’s a cue to think about Sherlock as a sexual being. It’s that for John as well, clearly. 

I don’t want to be self-referential about this, but I feel compelled to be tonight: we fanfiction writers know how great it is to have Irene crop up as a conversation between Sherlock and John. It’s a crisis point conversation. It’s the best way for John to ask all the questions he wants to without actually asking them, and that’s pretty much what happened here as well. He wants to know: are you straight, are you gay, what are you, Sherlock? What do you want? Do you love her? Is it her, or is it me?

That conversation usually ends like this: “I could go to her, but I’d rather stay with you.” (Why would he do that, John? Ohhh right, because he loves you!) We’ve all done that, haven’t we? Haven’t we all written that in one way or another? I don’t want to disparage my favourite screenwriter by saying “low hanging fruit,” but…Irene is low hanging fruit, we all grabbed it, didn’t we?

I like this idea that Sherlock sometimes responds to Irene’s texts. That’s good; that’s some ice melting off of him. To me that says he’s been thinking about the possibility that maybe a sexual relationship is something he wants. With her? Probably not. But she’s an entry point to it, she’s his libido, and yes, he has one, and he just acknowledged that. That’s great. Tonight, in this episode, Sherlock acknowledged that he sometimes considers the possibility of engaging in a sexual relationship. That’s huge.

I’m so glad Irene came back up just now.

John was about to leave. He was going to abandon Sherlock 20 minutes early, why? He’s trying to put distance between himself and Sherlock because he is not the man Mary thinks he is. Does this make sense? What does that have to do with Sherlock?

And why does he suddenly need to tell Sherlock what to do about Irene?

Because it’s not only Mary who needs him to be a good man. Sherlock needs him too, and John feels that he’s failed both of them. Why is he sending Sherlock off to Irene? He’s saying: I’m not good enough for you, Sherlock. Irene loves you too, go to here instead.

But that’s ridiculous. We all know Irene can’t keep Sherlock right. If anything, she’d send him down the worst paths, as she’s done before. John says to Mary, and to Sherlock: I can’t be the man you need to be. I cannot live up to your expectations. I am not that man.

And both of them say, yes you are. You’re human, you do the best you can, and that’s why we love you, and it’s good enough for me.

And John hears that, and he doesn’t leave.

I like it.

Americans had one job. Trump, the racist, sexist, homophobic, insulting man; the world urged you to make the right decision. Because at the end of the day it won’t just affect you, but everyone around you.

It takes just 4 minutes to launch nuclear weaponry.

Trump mocked a disabled reporter; promoted rape as a joke, which is now spurring men on to treat women like objects - something we’ve worked hard to remove from society; laughed about not paying taxes; continuously insulted people of different races, religions etc.

We all laughed about it months ago but who’s laughing now? People are at home crying; fleeing their sexuality and religion in the hopes of survival; Families scared of deportation. The only people laughing now are the people who don’t know this struggle.

People wonder how trump won this election? White supremacy.

88% of black people voted for Hilary in Florida alone. White people vote for trump because of Hilary’s email scandal? You’re lucky you don’t have to endure the pure anxiety that a poc has to as they await their fate.

You want your children to grow up watching this man? Who could very well take back the legalisation of gay marriage? You want to show your kids that rape is okay and it’s perfectly acceptable to call a woman whatever you want, it’s not like women could ever be highly educated, right? You want your children to grow up watching a racist?

Hilary might not of been perfect but I know for sure that people around the world would not be crying in despair if she was elected. She promoted something so promising, equality for all. Statistics have shown that of the millennials that voted, almost all of the map was covered in blue. Trump voters were of an older generation with old fashioned ignorant views.

Women who voted for trump? I pity you. You accept a man who shames our bodies, calls us ugly, sees us as objects…and many more offensive comments. If you accept this, then I really, really pity you and your view on women in society.

And to those who wasted their vote? Shame on you. 18,000 votes were wasted on Harambe. It’s all fun and games, but when you have the privilege to vote, you use it. People give out that 16 year olds would be too immature to vote, yet adults are a lot worse.

I’m disappointed in you America, allowing an anti-Muslim fascist, whose views are similar to those of the past, in hitler. You should of learned from the past. I’m still with her. I’m with Hilary. I’m with basic human rights. I’m with freedom.

(Michelle Obama 2020🙌)

When you fall in love with people,
You make homes out of them,
You leave bits and pieces of yourself there and it becomes a part of who they are and this pretty much explains why I feel empty and lost.
For all of my life,
I had my walls built so high that no one managed to climb it, but I fell for you and suddenly your existence became my walls.
I’m forsaken and sad but i’m not scared to be.
I learned the hard way that eventually everything will pass,

And regardless of how logical this sounds,
Or how it is supposed to make my heart hurt less,
It doesn’t.
I don’t want to spend these lonely nights knowing I still have demons to face.

So..

Give me something,
for the lonely hours..
Give me time,
so I’d learn how to love the regret..
Aren’t we all dying in spent breaths after all?
Aren’t we all broken by our own beliefs?
Betrayals?
The homes we left?
The ghosts we became?
And the demons we destroyed?

But for some reason,
Being with you felt like a better version of being alone and I thought we were eternity.
My thoughts are depressing,
But don’t I make you want to live?
Things were pretty much smooth and easy before me,
But were they beautiful?
We had an obsession with matching tattoos,
And now we have a matching hole inside our heart and soul.
Despite the tornadoes that raged on and the deafening silence we shared,
Us, this, will echo in our heads like a broken record.

My god,
I feel this numbness wrecking all my feelings,
emptying me and turning me cold.
I’m sorry,
I’m hard to understand..
I’m sorry,
I don’t talk..
I’m sorry,
I let you go..
But you weren’t supposed to make me want to kill myself.

Please read!

I’m sad. I’m not okay. I’m upset and heartbroken.

But to be fair, the contact that Camila had signed ended. Her contractual obligations to the group ended and the contract offered her an exit for when the contract expired.

We all know how restrictive and controlling their contracts were and how they didn’t have much control over anything. It would’ve been hard for all 5 of the girls to have the dreams and careers of the other 4 resting in the palm of their hands.

Imagine if 1 was exhausted and wanted to take a break from performing and have a few weeks or months off. They couldn’t. Because then they would be putting the careers of the other 4 girls on the line. So they would just have push through it. Go past their limits.

Think about it…when she had her horrific anxiety, it was the same year she turned 18 (the legal age of consent) and wasn’t protected from Management and the Label by the Child Labor Laws. Yes, she was restricted and controlled before that, but once she turned 18, her contract went into full motion. Management and the Label could use her fully and do what they want with her  without the need of consent from her parents.

In all honesty, yes I am sad. Fifth Harmony was a big reason why I got through my depression. But I want Camila to be happy. And if her contract was up and it offered her an exit and if she knew that leaving now would be best for her and her health and if she knew she would be happier…then I’m okay. I just want her to be healthy and happy.

And she’ll probably have more control over her career and the music she’ll make.

Hopefully she’ll take a few months off and relax and spend time with her parents and especially her sister Sofia. Make up for the time she lost and missed with her when she was traveling and Sofia was growing up.

I’m still going to love and support Camila and I’m still going to love and support Ally, Dinah, Lauren and Normani. The 5 of them have achieved a lot these past 4 and a half years. They’ve made history multiple times this year alone, they were named the greatest girl group of the decade, and they’ve made fans that will last a lifetime.

They should be proud.

- Love, a true Harmonizer ❤️

Many of you ask what to do when your motivation levels are low and how to stay motivated to study. Although it is really hard to stay motivated at all times (more about it later), we decided to share some things that may help you stay motivated and focused on working.

1. Define your exact goal
To stay motivated you need to know why exactly you need to be motivated. Write down (specifically!) what you want to achieve and an approximate time you need for it. Remember to be realistic and not go too easy (but also not too hard) on yourself. For example, avoid writing “finish all the stuff- approx. 3 days” and instead write “finish revision- approx. 4 hours, rewrite notes- approx. 1 hour, plan upcoming week- approx. 45 minutes”. You need a clear idea of what you want to accomplish.

2. Break it down
Once you have a specific goal, break it down into smaller pieces. So if you want to “study for a test”, you probably should “re-read necessary chapters”, “take notes”, maybe “watch lectures online”, “do old tests”, “re-read notes”. That way you aren’t facing a seemingly unachievable (so automatically demotivating) goal, but many smaller, and therefore easier to tackle tasks. Also, there is nothing as satisfying and motivating as crossing something off a to-do-list :)

3. Reward yourself after finishing your task
If you actually finished writing this paper or you did study for 3 hours, you really deserve this 30 minutes break or an episode of your favorite show or a cupcake or a manicure. Having something to look forward to while studying actually helps. Just remember to be honest with yourself and to keep the ‘work done’ to ‘rewards received’ ratio reasonable

4. Tell someone what you plan to do
Tell your friend or your parents or anyone who may hold you accountable what you want to do. That way, they will actually expect you to do this and you will feel more motivated (as being afraid of shame is actually a great motivator)

5. Try to make studying as pleasurable as possible
Clean you desk. Have some water. Prepare a tiny snack. Have all the books necessary in front of you. Tell you family/ roommates that you’ll be studying and therefore need peace and quiet. Turn off your phone and TV. If you can, invest in some nice stationery (though it isn’t necessary by any means!). Try not to hurry. It sounds super simple, but it is true that it’s easier to work/ study if your working space is is nice.

6. Keep track of your progress and accomplishments so far
Seeing how much you did and achieved so far, helps you to keep going in the moments of lowest motivation, which brings me to..

7. Just start.
This is an amazing tip, which works every single time. It’s much easier to keep working than to start working. Get off the couch and do just one thing- read one chapter, watch one lecture. Sometimes this small action can completely flip you attitude and get you back on track of studying.

8. Remember there is no such thing as stupid motivator
You get motivated by printing out motivational quotes and sticking them around your room? Great! Wanting to become next Tu YouYou keeps you going? Awesome! You study so you can get a great job and afford pretty shoes and nice cars? Good for you! Just thinking about Addison Montgomery makes you want to study? Amazing! Remember that whatever keeps you focused and motivating, it is great as it serves it purpose and you should never be ashamed of what it is!

9. Don’t get distracted by your mistakes- learn from them
It happened and you survived. There is no point in reminiscing, focus instead on what you can do better next time. You can use the feelings of sadness and anger as motivators, just remember not to drown in them

10. Create a studying routine and stick to it
There are days when nothing makes you motivated and they happen to everybody. That’s why it is so important to establish a studying routine- so even on days when studying is the last thing you want to do, you still do it- because you “programmed” yourself to do so. Sometimes, when nothing works you simply need to hustle. Celebrate those days, because having done something during those days is the greatest victory of all :)

11. And always remember that being able to study is a great privilege
Even when it seems like the worst of chores

Good luck!

“수고했어 오늘도 ❤️️ You guys have worked hard”

From little, mini concerts on the rooftop to stadium concerts, I can’t express how proud I am of not only how much the boys have grown but also how much the fandom has grown as well. We all know how hard they’ve worked to achieve all of this success. I can’t think of a better group that deserves all the love and support that they’re getting. Thank you for taking all of us, carats, along with you on the ride. We’ll continue to support you forever!

I’m re-reading ACOMAF and I just got to the bit where Rhys comes to get Feyre for her week in the Night Court (for the second time)- and I don’t know why but I always think about how hard that must be for Rhys… 

He turns up to get her, and she walks out of the room in a blanket, with nothing on underneath, and its clear that her and Tamlin had slept together the night before, and for Rhys that must be heartbreaking. He knows that Feyre is his mate and he’s just witnessed her walk out of a room practically naked, probably with Tamlin’s scent all over her- and yet he stands there acting like it’s nothing.

I mean, there is a bit where we see he is a but taken aback by her walking out the way she did- “Upon hearing the door open, Rhys turned toward me. The grin that had been on his face faltered.” 

I don’t know why this scene always gets me, but maybe it just reminds me how selfless Rhys actually is- whilst he is taking her to the Night Court despite Feyre not wanting to go-, he is respectful of her relationship with Tamlin, and accepts that she loves him.

Rhys for months watches his mate, the woman he is in love with, be in love with another male, and Rhys just accepts it. He rarely says things to Feyre that could convince her to leave Tamlin, or make him look bad. And it just makes me love Rhys more.
