at the end of a long escape

Behind These Bars

Daryl Dixon Imagine

based on a request. I’m so sorry it took me so long to get this done. I had most of it done a month ago but for some reason didn’t know how to end the story.
Sorry for that.


Negan takes Daryl “on a walk” to show him a secret. Daryl is suprised when Negan shows him a girl he’s holding captive in a large cage calling her his secret-weapon (harley-style, as requested. :D)

Daryl was walking behind Negan, his eyes shifting from left to right looking for ways to escape this hell rather sooner than later. Negan had taken him out of his cell to ‘go for a walk’ today and no matter how hard Daryl tried to find one, there was no logical reason for Negan to have him out here. They walked through dark corridors and multiple locked doors, it looked like he was leading Daryl through the maximun security wing of a prison. Was he going to kill him? No, he wouldn’t go through all this if he wanted to kill Daryl. Negan would do it somewhere for everyone to see. For Rick to see.
“I wanna show ya somethin’”, Negan said opening one more door. “The apple of my fuckin’ eye.” He did this little leaning back he did on almost every word he stressed. He was a strange man, overexaggerating everything he did. Playing a role. Daryl was sure that in the end this was Negan’s weak point: he was playing a character, every little crack in this role would lead to his downfall in the end. And whatever was behind this door, Daryl was sure it would play a big part in overthrowing Negan. He must have been aware of that as well, so why on earth would he lead Daryl down here?!
“Ya brought your bucket and mop!?” Negan looked him all over and Daryl nodded quickly. He had lived his whole life trying to be invisible, obeying to an abusive father and drinking brother, he knew how to make this kind of people happy. Negan was no different than them, a little bit more to the crazy side but overall, he was as easy to please.
“Good.” Negan laughed. “Fuckin’ great.” That little leaning-back thing again and with a big grin on his face he swung the door open.
The room that lay behind was dominated by a big cage. No, not dominated. The cage was pretty much all there was to the room. There was a bed in there and a small bundle of white clothes lying in the other corner.

3 AM on a Tuesday and instead of sleep, my heart demands more whiskey.
I am trying to erase this ghost of a feeling that wants nothing but to remember you at all times.
My ears long to hear your voice but I’ve already burned the bridge.
My Darling, I’m sorry I ended up being nothing like the person I promised you I would be.
I’m filled to the brim with guilt for not sticking by you as long as you would’ve let me.
You see, I’m not like the people who walk this earth only to love and love with all of their being and ask for nothing in return.
I still try to find constellations in your eyes and look for you in places even though I do not want to look at the love that I loved so dearly looking into the eyes of someone they call ‘home’.
You’ve occupied a lot of space in my heart and there’s nothing I could ever say or do to fall out of love with you but I hope, years from now, your name does not fill me with guilt but with sweet nostalgia that reminds me of a love that taught me how to live. A love that looked at all my scars and all my flaws but still chose to love me. A love that made sure I wasn’t fighting my battles alone. A love that held my hand in all my struggles and told me that there’s nothing in this world I couldn’t do. And most importantly, I hope, years from now, you forgive me.
But it’s 3 AM on a Tuesday and instead of sleep, my heart demands to forget you.
—  I tried so hard not to make this about you but you’re stuck in my head like a catchy beat on repeat. // Astha (via uponthisearth)

Cry. And remember the people who have changed the way i view the people in my life and taught me to never say no to an adventure. Thank you Fairy Tail. I will never forget you.

"You! Can't you see that -- in stooping to your enemy's level -- you're being made over in his image -- that you're becoming the very thing you loathe? " - Captain America #275, Steve Rogers defends neo-Nazi spokesman from being attacked by protestors while making a speech.

Yeah the issue written by dudes who weren’t even born until long after the end of WW2 totally overrides the pretty damn clear stance of Captain America’s co-creator.

I mean, in case we’re skipping over the above link, here’s a helpful quote: 

“When the German spy is killed at the end of the origin chapter, Cap nonchalantly remarked, “A fate he well deserved”– no remorse, no questioning.”

How about another?

In the Red Skull’s first appearance, after he is unmasked and defeated, the Skull makes one last desperate attempt at escape and Bucky tries to stop him. While Cap stood motionless, the Skull rolls over on a hypodermic filled with poison and dies. Bucky gets up and looks at Cap incredulously and asks, “But you saw it all–why didn’t you stop him from killing himself?” To which Cap casually replied, “I’m not talking Bucky”

I mean, Jack Kirby really, really hated Nazis. Don’t believe me? How about Stan Sakai?

But sure, Cap would get squeamish at punching Nazis. A+ cherrypicking, have an Iron Cross.

anonymous asked:

Imagine aliens reaction to a human literally laughing in the face of danger. Just, GIANT SPACE MONSTER THING and all the human does is laugh while it loads its rifle. Band of space pirates and one is asking for the human as a bride because of reasons, "pfft, no."

Yussep had faced many dangers. The Falls of Chaos, the race of creatures known only as Devourers. Each time he had barely escaped with his life. But nothing–NOTHING– scared him more than humans. Yussep and Mari had been travelling together on this hell planet for almost two years, long after his species invasion had ended. Poorly. The earth had all but destroyed their entire fleet, so they’d retreated, leaving Yussep alone. Mari had always been scary, but this…. now she was downright terrifying.

She had faced a Many Faced Night Crawler, from a planet no ship could get near. The Night Crawlers were the ultimate killing machines. Fast, strong, AND smart. The ultimate combo. So when a legion had landed on Earth, Yussep prepared to say goodbye to his new home. He and Mari had been passing by chance when the fleet had landed. He’d tried to warn her, tried to drag her away. Over their time together he had grown bonded with her. But Mari wrenched her arm from his grasp. When she spoke it was little more than a feral growl.

“They picked the wrong planet. I am done with these damn aliens always invading my damn planet. ” she stormed towards the fleet, looking impossibly tiny agaisnt their war ships, her dark skin barely registering againt the midnight black hull. Yussep quietly mourned his friend as he followed behind, his brain screaming at him to run, to do the logical thing as he always had. But compared to the night crawlers, Mari was a kitten.

And she had just walked into a wolf pack.

He couldnt leave her. Not now. He would die by her side. Together to the end, just like he promised. He winced as the mighty black doors opened with a hiss. But Mari planted herself in front of them, hands on her hips, staring up defiantly as the first night crawler set foot on the Earth.

He’s never seen one so close. They were huge. Towering nearly 12 feet above Mari, their skin was living shadow. Not just dark, as he had been lead to believe. These creatures were MADE of shadows, swirling together, whispering, stretching out in dangerous vines. Blood red eyes glowed like xarax engines. Dear stars. They would not survive this. Not even Mari. The beast lowered its head, taking in Mari’s stubborn form. She lifted her head, taking a deep breath as she shouted,

“FUCK OFF, THIS IS YOUR ONE AND ONLY WARNING!!” The beast cocked its head, its face splitting apart to reveal rows of jagged teeth, razor sharp, perfect for shredding soft flesh. They were so, sooo dead. Mari took one look at those teeth…and laughed. She threw her head back and howled into the sky.

“ it’s like a frickin cheese grater!”

Mari switched from terrifying, to horrifying.

Without another word, still laughing, Mari launched herself towards the beasts lowered head. She grasped it firmly by its hearing appendeges, drawing her knife from her side.

“Ha! Too late for you, pal,” she raked her blade across its exposed throat in one smooth movement, fury blazing in her eyes. The beast fell and melted into shadows that sunk into the ground. Mari turned and bared her teeth at the fleet. Yussep could only watch as Mari raised her arms in triumph, in challenge.

And the undefeatable Night crawler fleet promptly took to the skies, fleeing as quickly as they dared. Mari watched them go before turning to Yussep with blood splattered on her face and a wicked gleam in her eye.

“Seems they were smarter than you idiots,”

Yussep couldnt agree more.

twelfth house planets have a difficult time telling us about themselves. the language is incoherent. its an untamed force. they are spirits spinning chaotically in the universal psychic current, containing archetypal inheritance, soul memory, and emotion. the 12th house is fragment of dream, and this is why we all return to the sea of pisces. at the end of the seasonal zodiac carousel awaits the 12th house, the invisible winter, self ingression, the days are shorter and the nights are longer. flowers are wilting. 12th house destruction emerges from unconscious resevoirs, an immutable longing for escape and to provide a reality of existence 

I always used to roll my eyes at people stanning villains and falling in love with them and saying “they’re just misunderstood! they just need love!”

but then guillermo del toro gave me Lucille Sharpe from Crimson Peak, whose name means light but who was locked away in darkness for so long that she was twisted into a monster

who suffered horrendous abuse as a child and as a teenager, caged at home and then in an institution where she was further neglected and assaulted

who clung obsessively to the only source of love she ever knew, her one comfort, which she ended up hurting, confining and killing in her selfish, yet understandable, need to keep it close

who is constantly stitched into rigid and painful clothing

who could not escape her demons, even in death

whom jessica chastain described as being like an abused animal that desperately wants to be touched and loved, but which will bite the instant it is touched

who has committed horrendous, unforgivable crimes, but who is still, at her core, an abused child

who might have been good, once, but who underwent a terrible metamorphosis and hatched out of her cocoon as a carnivorous black moth instead of a butterfly

who will, for eternity, remain that monster, because there is no undoing such a transformation fed by pain, misery and mistreatment

and I went

fuck

anyway good job on the sympathetic villain guillermo she wrecks me every time and I just want to hold her and love her and write meta and 1000 crappy redemption fics for her I hope you’re happy

You and George love to take naps so you usually end up falling asleep using his shoulder as a pillow. He is always quick to follow your lead.

Sometimes the two of you don’t even want to sleep, but just curl up in each others arms. You find it comforting to hold hands, and for you to use his arm as a pillow. The two of you will talk or just relax before eventually falling asleep.

anonymous asked:

What happened to taking the coward's way out, did you finally grow a back bone? It is very brave of you to stand and face that monster, especially with you're true nature finally revealed. How long will it take? How long until you begin to regret your decision? How long until you with it would just end? How long until the pain is all you know? This will be interesting, to say the least.

*My cowardly nature has not changed.
*I cannot look him in the eyes.
*I do not want to see his expression.
*…
*I hesitated to jump.
*Although I claim I told him for his own sake.
*This is nothing more than my new escape plan.
*Everything gets fixed tonight.

  • The further south you go, the further north you get. Directions mean nothing. You drive and drive and end up further away from where you were going than when you started. You only end up in the south (or is it the north?) by accident, and are never sure how you eventually get back.
  • Several times a year the tourists flock into your town, clogging the highways and the beaches and the restaurants. You look the other way as they wade into water that is just a bit cooler and murkier than it should be. What’s a few tourists, in the long scheme of things?
  • You see the Snowbirds come, the retirees that visit every winter to escape the cold. You have never met the same one twice. You stop asking for names.
  • You take a kayaking tour of the coast. Your guide whispers to you to be careful, says that the mangroves can be dangerous, warns you not to get lost. In the distance there is screaming. Your guide says that it’s just the local frogs, and you pretend not to see his haunted stare.
  • Alligators appear in every body of water. You hesitate to leave the bathtub unattended, never leave the dishes to soak in a full sink, but it does no good. They crawl out of the water pitcher, the birdbath, the puddles on your counter. You try to ignore them. They ignore you. You learn to live with them.
  • There is a Publix on every street, and you are glad. You love them with a fierce devotion you cannot begin to explain. When you visit other states, you feel empty inside, always thinking of when you can get back.
  • You do not believe in snow. You have seen it three times, on vacations up north… you do not believe in snow. 
  • You barely even notice anymore when the hurricanes come, not until the air is heavy and yellow and the wind is strong. You think ‘oh’, and drive to the store to buy the third-to-last loaf of bread, and then it rains for 5 days and you eat canned beans by candlelight. Afterwards you can barely recall that it happened. Outside, there is a pile of woodchips where a tree used to be. You don’t remember why.
  • There is a man selling oranges beside the road, beside almost every road. You have never seen anyone stop for them, but there they remain. Someday, you think, you will buy some of those oranges. You never do.
  • In the distance, the clouds loom like mountains. You are not sure what mountains are, but you think they must be mostly like that. A handful of minutes later, they are gone.

An audible sigh escaped you when you stepped off the elevator in your apartment building, taking a right turn to head down the long hallway. Your feet carried you, but protested heavily after the shift you had pulled at your dead-end waitressing job. You were sure you smelled of stale cigarettes and dirty dishes, but at least you had some cash in your pocket. As if that hadn’t been stressful enough, you hadn’t even seen your apartment in about 20 hours due to college classes and familial commitments. It was the week before Spring Break and hectic was the synonym for your life.

BTS Reaction To Their S/O Having Wanderlust

Request: “BTS reaction to a girlfriend who has wanderlust. She does spend time with them as long as they’re available but is always roping them into trips. When it’s comeback time and bf has no time for her, she escapes elsewhere. And if they’re on tour, she might follow them… or end up somewhere else, but she definitely won’t stay put.”

A/N: I’m really late with this, but I hope you guys like it :)


Jin:

Originally posted by jjilljj

I feel like Jin would be a little confused about your behavior and would want to facetime all the time. He would be happy that you’re doing what you love, but he would want to make sure you’re taking care of yourself and he would be upset if instead of going on tour with him you chose to travel elsewhere. 

Yoongi:

Originally posted by bangtoori

Yoongi on the other hand would think it’s awesome that you’re so independent and focused on your passion, I think he would love to hear about your adventures whenever you to had time together. Of course he would miss you a lot, but at the same time he would think you’re happy doing what you love

Namjoon:

Originally posted by yoongichii

I think he would be a mix between Jin and Yoongi. I think he would feel rejected if you choose to travel while he doesn’t have to promote that much and would make him confused, because he loves to see you happy, but at the same time he loves you and misses you, so I think he would struggle with the relationship. 

Hoseok:

Originally posted by dream-bts

Hoseok wouldn’t be very pleased not having you by his side. He can be very sensitive sometimes and wouldn’t know how deal with you leaving all the time, of course he would enjoy 100% of your time together, but whenever he calls and you don’t pick up because you’re on another trip makes him very worried thinking that you’re actually avoiding him.

Jimin:

Originally posted by dia-the-thief

I think Jimin would be that boyfriend who calls you like 10000 times a day. Not really a bad thing but I think he would want your attention even if it’s only a call, so actually he wouldn’t be very worried about you travelling, however you’re the one who’d be bothered because that boy wouldn’t leave you alone ;)

Taehyung:

Originally posted by takujaepls

I think Tae would not care about the time you spend apart. He would make the most of the time you have together and would always be unforgettable so whenever you two were apart both of you would keep thinking about the time you spent together and how much you’re looking forward to the next time you see each other.

Jungkook:

Originally posted by myoongim

Similar to Tae, Jungkook would always make sure that you have together and that’s always unforgettable. I think he would convince you to tour with them just so you can have a taste of what is like to travel with your boyfriend and hopefully you wouldn’t have that much wanderlust now that you can do it with him.


Today’s the day...

I was just about to turn 17 when The Vampire Diaries premiered and now I’m 24. I remember seeing the promo’s for it and how I couldn’t wait to watch it, I knew I would love it but I had no idea how special it would become to me and how sentimental I would feel when it ended. TV shows are just TV shows we know that, but certain stories have the ability to leave a mark on us and that’s what happened here. This show gave me an escape when I needed it, it connected me with lifelong friends, its a connection to my youth and I’ve cherished every laugh or cry it’s ever given me and now its ending and there is no good way to say goodbye, but I’ll do my best….

Goodbye to Mystic Falls with all its history, where our characters were born and have lived and loved for so long. 

Originally posted by kate-kami

Goodbye to Alaric with his giant heart and brilliant mind, I’m gonna miss you buddy! Your name is awesome by the way and if i ever have a son he will probably be named in honor of you :)

Goodbye to Bonnie with her magic and her unbelievable strength and selflessness, and goodbye to Caroline with her bubbly personality and blinding light of a smile. no one could have found two better people to call their best friends. 

Goodbye to Matt and Jeremy two undeniable warriors with their friendship and brotherly presence in everyone’s lives and their ability to stay grounded and just as much a force to be reckoned with as any vampire despite their humanity

Goodbye to Tyler the hot headed, impulsive but sometimes lovable resident werewolf of mystic Fall… my least favorite of the group but he had his moments RIP <3

Originally posted by teamlockwood

goodbye to Stefan with his resilience and determination to do good, I’ll never forget his tender heart and the love he showed for his big brother. If the theories are true and you leave us tonight I’ll be a sobbing mess!

Goodbye to Damon, the hardest goodbye of all. So gorgeous inside and out! so multifaceted.  There has never been and never will be a character I love and respect as much as him. when he hurt I hurt and when he was happy so was I! He suffered physical and emotional abuse from his father, was abandoned by his mother, manipulated and played cruelly by Katherine and then forced to be told time and time again that he wasn’t good enough for the girl he loved when he had fought so hard to be. He’s a survivor and I will love him until I take my last breath on this earth! 

Originally posted by retricar

And finally goodbye to Elena, with her pure soul she was the first to loose so much along this journey but remained a source of strength for everyone around her. She changed everyone she loved for the better and I hope going forward that she and the love of her life can enjoy the happy ending they have fought so hard for and deserve! Goodbye princess!!

Author’s notes: I had inspiration strike at around 2 AM. My favorite couple is back! Fluff and angst! Gosh, I love them.


Stormtroopers were on your trail ever since you got separated from Cassian. Your blaster has only so much ammo to take on a few, let alone a dozen. You try your best to keep shooting, dodging and weaving their blasts as you escape from their grip. You are doing just fine until you realize that the path you are on has an awful dead end: a long plummet down to the ominous sea. You hyperventilate as you look behind then back at the sea. The sound of oncoming stormtroopers marching your way cuts your decision time to less than a few seconds. There is no other option but to jump, you tell yourself. You close your eyes as you take a giant leap off the ledge.

“Italy Diaries, page 1 // This summer I decided to move to Italy for an entire month. I got my heartbroken in the spring by a boy I thought I was going to spend the rest of my life with and my only escape from the thoughts in my head was to leave. Leave my surroundings. I couldn’t even go to the grocery store without being reminded of him. So I did it. I got rid of everything that reminded me of what we shared and left. It started off with cutting my hair. He always loved my long hair and he hated bangs. So I cut bangs and also my ends. I left the states in June and went to Milan for a month where I stayed with an unbelievably incredible family and taught English. I was eternally grateful because not only was I teaching, but I was also learning. That month was full of soul searching and getting back to being myself again. But truth be told, I didn’t go back to my old self. I reinvented myself, I was reborn. Italy and the people I was surrounded by taught me so much that I couldn’t learn from anyone or anywhere else. To love myself as much as the love I give in return. “Veni, Vidi, Amavi.” - I came, I saw, and I loved.”

Lance backstory headcanons: pidgance tangled au
These are just a few, so if you have anymore to share I’d love to see them.
  • Lance loses his family at a very young and is sent to a local orphanage.
  • For a long time, he’s alone. The only thing he has are some dusty books that let him escape reality, allowing him to enter a fictional world to get his mood up.
  • Right off the bat, his favorite genre are fairytale stories because of the happy endings. Especially the ones involving saving a princess. A part of him longs to be the hero of a story instead of the victim.
  • When the princess of Corona was kidnapped,  Lance saw an opportunity to have one of his fantasies come true. But he was young to join the search party, sadly.
  • After sometime, he drops the idea of saving her and moves onto something else.
  • After a few years at the orphanage, he meets a boy named Hunk and they quickly become best friends.
  • They despretately wanted to be adopted together so they can be brothers legally. Their already closer than most siblings, so is this too much to ask for?
  • A couple arrived one day and adopted only Hunk, forcing the boys to split up. Luckily, they stay in touch through a series of letters.
  • In his pre-teen years, he gives up the idea of being adopted and decides to run away.
  • Hunk offers him to come stay with his family, but Lance declines. The feeling of putting his problems onto others is something he despises. It’s just easier for him to deal with his problems alone.
  • Soon, he stumbles upon a group of thieves that adopt him as their own. Although their job is is wrong, Lance doesn’t care. This is the closest to a  family he could find.
  • For years, he trains with them to become the perfect thief and he quickly joins the ranks of the greatest.
  • On his 16th birthday, he receives a blue satchel as a gift. Altough it’s worn and torn, it quickly becomes his prized posseision.
  • When he’s out stealing one night, he spots beaming lights in the sky. It takes him a few moments to realize it’s the floating lanterns.
  • For the princess.
  • And in that moment, he’s reeled back to a memory in the back of his mind. Lance remembers how invested he was to find her all those years ago.
  • Even though he’s no longer searching for her, a small part of him wants to be the one to bring her back home.
  • Hopefully, one day.
