but come on their damn names!!!!!!

Rings

There is a girl on campus who is called Rings. Everyone thinks the name comes from the fact that she wears at least two on each finger. (She wears necklaces too, and bracelets, and many earrings, you wonder where she gets them all)

She can be found outside at a picnic table shuffling a deck of cards. (You don’t recognize any of the symbols on them)

If you walk up to her she will always ask, “Want to play a game?”

The answer no gets a shrug and usually a question as to why you are there. Many enjoy just speaking to her about their day. “She’s nice to talk to,” they say. (They don’t mention the way their eyes are drawn to the rings whenever she waves a hand. Or how hard it is to break their gaze away from how her necklaces shine in the light)

The answer yes gets a laugh and another question as to what they want to play. (Poker and blackjack are popular answers, but sometimes Go Fish is just as popular)

The next question she asks is what you will bet. If you just want a friendly game say you will bet nothing. She will smile and pull out a bag of treats and you will play with those as a reward. (Most decide to do this, she is easy to play with and the treats are safe. It is when you bet something that the game is dangerous)

Those who wish to bet something bring jewelry, songs, pictures, or anything they value. She will always match the value and the game will begin. Slowly as it goes on the bets get bigger, and sometimes people bet things they didn’t plan to. (People whisper that one person lost all of their clothing one time) The game usually ends with the bettor leaving to do something with items that they don’t think they need. (Eventually they need them though. One time someone bet their final History paper hoping to get the Bio final key. They got a ring of rose quartz instead. The next day they traded the rose quartz to a Gentry to get their friend back)

But there are those who truly wish for something more powerful. They are the foolish ones who attempt to find their friends with only the iron around their necks and salt in their pockets. They are the ones who want to get close to the Gentry to study them and want protection. (Magic is everywhere in Elsewhere but magical items are hard to obtain, and the Fae sometimes will be interested on how you got them)

They come with Virtues, favors from Fair Folk, pictures of true forms, anything worth one of Rings enchanted objects.

Sometimes she sees the fierce determination in the eyes of someone who wants their roommate back, or needs protection from a Gentry they got on the bad side of. To these she slips off a ring and without a game give it to them with a laugh and a comment that she’ll get it back later. (Those are the lucky ones, and they always end up seeing the ring she gave them back on her finger a week or so later)

Other times she looks at them and simply starts the game. Sometimes they win. Most of the time they lose. Losing is not something you want to do. (You always lose more than you think)

If you find her during a game with people who don’t look quite right, never interrupt. The stakes there are higher than you will ever know. (The cards seem to glow)

People speculate that she’s not human, but many of her accessories are made of iron. Others say she won her power from a game with the Fair Folk (They are not quite off the mark)

You find Rings at a picnic table off the near your dorm. She’s finishing up a game with one of the Chemistry majors you know. She looks at you and smiles. (You can now see why some don’t think her human) “Want to play a game?” she asks. You shake your head no. You sit down and stare at her hands shuffling the cards. You only ask one question.

“How do I become a card dealer?”

She grins.

Lucy: ok but for real if you think I’m going to saddle my children with the all the baggage a Dragneel last name entails you have another damn thing coming!!!! I know I had issues with my own last name but this is just ridiculous. Natsu, our kids are going to be Heartfilias, ok? 

/// I’m a proponent of any kids Lucy and Natsu having being Heartfilia-Dragneels, personally, but FT is just being absolutely ridiculous lately 

you wanna talk about stress? you wanna talk about STRESS? i’ve just stumbled onto a major company conspiracy, mac. how’s that for stress? this company is being bled like a stuck pig, mac, and i got a paper trail to prove it. check this out. take a look at this. that right there is the mail, now, let’s talk about the mail. can we talk about the mail? please, mac? i’ve been dying to talk about the mail with you all day, okay? pepe silvia. this name keeps coming up over and over again. every day, pepe’s mail is getting sent back to me. i look in the mail. this whole BOX is pepe silvia. so i say to myself, i gotta find this guy. i gotta go up to his office. i gotta put the guy’s mail in the guy’s god damn hands, otherwise he’s never gonna get it. it’s gonna keep coming back down here. so i go up to pepe’s office, and what. do. i. find. out? what do i find out? there is no pepe silvia. the man does not exist. so i decide, ohhh shit, buddy, i gotta dig a little deeper. there’s no pepe silvia? you gotta be kidding me! i got BOXES full of pepe! all right, so i start marching my way down to carol in HR, and i knock on her door and i say CAAAAAAAAAROL, CAAAAAAAAROL, i gotta talk to you about pepe! and when i open the door, what do i find? there’s not a single goddamn desk in that office there is. no. carol. in. h. r. mac, half the employees in this building have been made up. this office is a goddamn ghost town.

Trump's 'Hamilton' tweets are a distraction from the stories he might not want you to see:

News broke Friday morning that Trump had chosen Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions for attorney general.

Sessions opposes a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants and has expressed support for a ban on Muslims. Sessions also has a troubling history of racist comments.

Also on Friday, Trump reached a $25 million settlement agreement in a fraud lawsuit involving his failed Trump University venture.

The size of the settlement is a damning indication of the severity of the grievances against Trump University — especially coming from Trump, who has, in the past, mocked business that chose to settle lawsuits, according to the New York Times.

Since the election, reports of acts of hate committed in the name of Trump have surged.

Just last week, swastikas were spray-painted in a park named for Beastie Boy Adam Yauch, along with the words “Go Trump.” Hijab-wearing Muslim women have been attacked and harassed. And the hate isn’t just random and dispersed — it’s also organized.

Protesters continue to gather to speak out against Trump’s appointment of Steve Bannon.

Trump’s selection of Bannon to play a key role in his presidency only stokes the fears of those who are terrified that Breitbart’s brand of hyperbolic and combative racism, sexism, anti-Semitism and transphobia could become national policy.

And the mounting concern about Trump’s business conflicts of interest.

Fears about how Trump will simultaneously manage both his business interests and the interests of the United States have only mounted. Trump will enter office with “unprecedented” conflicts of interest, including an ongoing lawsuit between the Trump Organization and the government over a Trump hotel on government land, his debt to Deutsche Bank and his vested interest in the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Trump’s promises that his business affairs will be managed by his children are also worrying, because several of those children sit on his transition team and his daughter, Ivanka Trump, were recently photographed in a meeting with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. If a recent meeting is any indication, Trump seems to be planning to go on with much of his business as usual.

Trump: I need to say something about Black History. Names! I NEED NAMES!

Aides: Harriet Tubman

Trump: That’s the woman on the $20? Yes. More!

Aides: Rosa Parks!

Trump: I need to balance it out. Two Black women, one Black man. We can’t use Martin Luther King again, he’s got a whole damn day.

Aides: Fredrick Douglass!

Trump: TRAFFIC! I heard that name a lot with Republicans!

[Graphic from New York Times - Headline: Trump: That Frederick Douglass “has done an amazing job.”

Yes, that Frederick Douglass, former slave, abolitionist and statesman who died in 1895.

Meeting with African-American supporters at the White House on Wednesday, the president let it be known that Mr. Douglass, an important figure in American history, had come to his attention.

“Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who has done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice,” Mr. Trump said. “Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks and millions more black Americans who made America what it is today. A big impact.”

Yes, he said that.]

“Another great issue of RHATO that builds on the previous issues but also Jason’s overall history in the DC universe. Jason’s time in Arkham and the skills he learned there to cope with his trauma come into play in a major way while his relationships with everyone are tainted by his experiences with Bruce. One of my favorite things about the issue is how it shows that Jason is very much the heart of RHATO, and not just because his name comes first. He cares for his team, even if they don’t realize that they are a team yet. It’s astounding when you think about Jason’s background and all the truly awful things that have happened to him and it’s what makes this book stand out. Yes, almost every hero in the DC universe has had some epically bad trauma but few have been through the brutality that Jason has endured on both a physical and emotional level and still find it in themselves to give a damn about the world around them. That he does is pretty phenomenal and makes the character, and the book, one of the more complex and truly heroic ones out there.”

Anon: Can you please do one where lance is self-doubting and staying up really late and training? Like he gets really sick from not sleeping. Like can’t keep anything down sick. It’s okay if you don’t want to do or you already did this already. Please and thank you!

Anon: Maybe something where Lance is getting berrated (idk why) and Keith comes to his defense like in intensness or something.

A/N: When I started writing this, I didn’t intend for it to be so dark. Hot damn. Deep shit ahead. Also, I’m horrible at pet-names. I tried to write from 3rd person Keith instead of omniscient so here we go ᕕ(ツ)ᕗ

It was a particularly depressing mission.

The Blue Paladin had to make a near-impossible choice. Surrender Voltron, or surrender a resource-heavy planet and all its inhabitants. Death wasn’t mentioned in either scenario, but it was very heavily implied. In the end, Lance made the choice to save Voltron on the basis that they would save many many other planets by defeating Zarkon in the long run.

But that didn’t mean a whole planet’s worth of deaths wasn’t weighing on his soul.

They met at a dog park.

Which is weird in and of itself because a) Dean hates driving dogs in his baby; b) it’s not even his dog; and c) He’s still pissed at Sam for skipping out on him and their dad only to come back with a dog sized golden retriever he named Bones of all things. Jesus, Sam, you’d think you’re have a little more imagination considering you hid from one of the best damn trackers for two weeks only to name a dog after something we see every day. 

Dean sighed to himself. All that and he still has somehow found himself on pooch duty in some dog park in the middle of Illinois of all things. 

“He is limping.” Dean turned to the sound of a gruff voice coming from right behind in. 

“Yeah well, he’s old.” His comeback was coming out before he got a good look at the guy he was talking to.

New Newtina Things That Made Me Happy Today

- Tina is 25 years old (damn gurl, so young to have such a distinguished career). Newt is 29 years old. There is a 4-year age gap. I love it (see also: WildeHopps)

- Tina’s middle name is ‘Esther’ which means ‘Star’. ‘Artemis’ which is Newt’s middle name is the ‘Goddess of the Moon’

- Porpentina comes from ye olden word Porpentine which means Porcupine. Newts and Porcupines. HOW CUTE IS IT THAT THEY BOTH HAVE ANIMAL NAMES?

- (Not really Newtina but..) Tina’s birthday is on August 19th, which makes her a Leo. Who else do we know who’s a Leo? (hint: It starts with an H then a P)

- Tina’s bed is predominantly blue and green, which is different because she prefers monochrome in her wardrobe. Who else do we know who has a blue and green color scheme, and whose eyes can either be blue or green?  

- Tina is a Thunderbird. She has the soul of an adventurer. She eventually marries a renowned traveler and accomplish her hearts’ desire of travelling the world (she deserves it honestly).
