but i think i'll live through it !

My first heartbreak you ask? I don’t think I ever got over that one. Each day I am learning to accept that that familiar smell will always circle my lungs. The way that laughed looked will forever be traceable in my iris’s. That touch consistently the mold I judge other touches by. My first heartbreak is a tolerable memory that I live through each day.
—  Excerpts of stories @magnolias-and-mimosas will never finish// #203

Things were good, actually no things were great before it all happened.

Now, I feel so lost, lost for words, lost with my sense of direction, lost in my thoughts…I am lost. I have so many questions, I’m starting to think my life has become nothing but a series of questions.

Thing is they are legitimate questions but they are still yet to be answered, will they ever be answered? Did I deserve this, does anyone deserve this? 

Do you ever just look at someone and think to yourself, wow they are so lucky I wish I lived their life or when will  I finally be satisfied with the life I live. I used to be like them you know, happy, or at least I thought I was happy.

Now..now I just sit, I feel numb, so numb in fact that I feel as if someone could drive a knife through me and I wouldn’t feel an ounce of pain.

Emotions, what are emotions?

Feelings, huh I feel nothing but emptiness…

Hope, I used to think that was all I needed to get through life, that was until you. You made me give up on hope, give up on practically everything I lived for.

Oh but look at you, everything has worked out pleasantly well for you hasn’t it? 

Pain, I guess the only good thing is I no longer feel it, pain..that is. Or maybe I do, but I have become immune to it because that’s what anyone would do right?

Ok super villain who lives in the apartment above me. I was nice when you drilled at all hours, maniacally laughed for 90 mins, and even when you set up surveillance in my living room. But when your freaking evil robot gains sentience, busts through my ceiling, and scares my dog, I will have satisfaction! Either you apologize and pay for the damages, or I'll release my audio recording of you singing "Hips Don't Lie" at the top of your lungs. Think about it, Eddie. #OnlyInGotham #RiddleMeTHIS

luna-person  asked:

(2/2) Also, can shiro proposing to keith be a yearly thing( building on the "I'll say yez to you if you asked me 50 times they don't have to get married every year just think it'd be cute(though they'd definitely get married on the 50th year)) And, I think one of my favorite tropes in the family au so far is keith calling shiro nicknames (such as bro, dude ,man, etc.)and keith going monotone (I live for it)(I'm scrolling through your voltron family tag and it's amazing, so sorry for spam) xoxo ♡

OKAY. I absolutely ADORE the fact that Keith and Shiro calls each other “BRO” “DUDE” “MAN” too despite being married ‘cause I just find it utterly hilarious that’s why it makes its appearance from time to time. ;) They did call each other “BRO” and “DUDE” when they got together even when Shiro proposed. Keith going monotone LMAO I’m so happy you live for that because SAME. 

The 50 times thing Keith said is not joke. SHIRO DOES PROPOSE YEARLY. Let’s have a breakdown on how it went through the years.

[The Voltron Family] The times Takashi Shirogane proposed to Keith. They didn’t always have a wedding because that’s just absurd. They, however, do something special, like a dinner date.

[1st]  We know this was during their 8th year of dating. Had a wedding in Japan with the parents and all—traditional Japanese style.

[2nd] He proposed while they watched CSI before sleeping. Had their second wedding in Japan—modern style. The kids were there.

[3rd] Keith was eating his cereal because he was stayed up late editing so he didn’t have the energy to cook anything for his breakfast. Also he woke up late, it was already noon. Shiro went down to the kitchen and saw his husband, still in his Adventure Time pyjamas, messy bed hair everywhere, eyes closing every 5 seconds, spoon hanging in the air. 

Shiro: Good Morning, sleepy head. *gives Keith a kiss on the cheek*
Keith: Who are you? *blinks sleepily* *spoon still hanging in the air*
Shiro: *bends down to take Keith’s spoon and eat his cereal*
Keith: What the hell? *tries to look angry but is still sleepy*
Shiro: *gulps* *chuckles* Marry me?
Keith: *eyes widens* *blinks repeatedly* Looking like this?
Shiro: *examines Keith* Looking like a college student who had 10 minutes of sleep because of thesis paper and is definitely not ready to face the day to take not only one, but five of his final exams? *smiles* DEFINITELY.
Keith: *rolls his eyes while smiling fondly* Fine. Gimme a second to wash my face and we can let the kids wed us.
Shiro: Perfect. *leans in the give Keith a peck on the lips* KIDS!!!! DADDIES ARE GETTING MARRIED!!!! 
Pidge: AGAIN? *shouts back*
Shiro: WHAT IS WITH THAT TONE, YOUNG LADY? YES. AGAIN.

[4th] Keith was washing the cars with the help of Shiro. He stepped on the stepping ladder to reach the top when he was met with Shiro on the other side.

Shiro: *beams* Marry me, oh sweet sexy car washer guy!
Keith: This sweet sexy car washer guy will only marry the other sexy car washer guy if they actually finish washing the cars. *throws foams of bubbles at Shiro’s face*
Shiro: *still beaming* *foam lands on his nose* I’ll take that as a yes!

[5th] They were doing groceries at the PRODUCE section with the kids when suddenly Keith turned around to call for Shiro and he saw him down on one knee, holding out a beansprout tied at its ends in a poor attempt of a ring.

Keith: I’m not that cheap! *places hand on chest* *scandalized*
Shiro: *holds out another beansprout ring* *smiles*
Keith: Now that’s what I’m talking about. I like my men rich. *holds out one hand for Shiro to put his rings on*

[6th] Keith was in the bathroom when Shiro knocked. 

Shiro: *opens the door to enter* *slides the shower curtain aside* *frantic* Keith, will you marry me?!!
Keith: *eyes widens* *tries to cover his body with more bubbles* SHIRO WHAT THE HELL? *slips in the bathtub*
Shiro: *catches Keith in time* Why hello there, handsome. Did it hurt? When you fell for me? *wiggles eyebrows*
Keith: Shiro, I love you but I swear to god I’m going to kill you.
Shiro: Great! That’s settled then! I’ll pick you up at 8pm for our dinner date, fiance~ *winks* *leans down to kiss Keith on the lips* *blinks repeatedly as he tastes his own lips* Huh, soapy.

[7th] Keith received an urgent call from Shiro telling him to come immediately to the hospital, he wouldn’t tell him what the emergency was, just that Keith needed to be there ASAP. So Keith drove as fast as he could, leaving early from work. He looked for Shiro frantically until he found him, looking devastated in his own office.

Keith: Shiro, what’s wrong? *approaches him* *places hand on his shoulders*
Shiro: Keith, I want you to be calm, alright? 
Keith: Okay. *nods*
Shiro: I got my recent heart scan and I found out that…
Keith: *gulps* *sweats nervously* Yes?
Shiro: *sighs* I guess it’s better you see it yourself. *takes out a big brown folder from his drawer and hands it to Keith*
Keith: *takes it and opens it* *the scan reveals Shiro’s heart but in there were white veins that spelled out “WILL YOU MARRY ME?”* 
Shiro: *smirks*
Keith: *looks up* *slaps Shiro* *smiling* I FUCKING HATE YOU! 
Shiro: *laughs* *grabs Keith’s hand to stop him from slapping him further*
Keith: Though I gotta hand it to you, this is really creative.
Shiro: Yeah? You think so too? *looks at the X-Ray.
Keith: Yeah… *looks up at Shiro and slaps him again* DON’T YOU EVER SCARE ME LIKE THAT AGAIN!
Shiro: *chuckles* Sorry, sorry! But I just couldn’t resist. So? What’s your answer? *smiles fondly at Keith while interlacing their hands*
Keith: Of course, it’s a yes. You still have 44 proposals to go.
Shiro: *smirks* Wow. Someone’s counting.
Keith: Someone has to. I wonder what you’ll do next year. Gonna get creative every year, aren’t we?
Shiro: *sways them* I dunno. I could propose while I’m pooping—
Keith: And I’d still say yes. *leans in to give Shiro a peck on the lips*
Shiro: *chuckles* Wow, okay. I know you liked me, but I didn’t know you liked me THAT much, Keith!

Akaashi breaks his promises. 

  • Phil: Hey Dan, what's the meaning of-
  • Dan: Life? Existence? Humanity? Why do we live in this cycle of waking up and falling back to sleep? Why do we continue to allow our bodies to function when really all they want to do is breakdown? Phil, the answer is purpose. It's more than a concept Phil, you can look for something or someone to help motivate your entire being and you'll find everything worth it. You can always take comfort in me, I'll do anything to be by your side and help you through this confusion we call living.
  • Phil: ...
  • Phil: I just wanted to know what a sugar orgasm was
Church's story arc ending monologues:
  • Alpha (Season 5): You know Caboose, I used to not care. I just went along with orders, and hoped that everything would work out for me. But after all that's happened, you know what I've learned? It's not about hating the guy on the other side because someone told you to. I mean, you should hate someone because they're an asshole, or a pervert, or snob, or they're lazy, or arrogant or an idiot or know-it-all. Those are reasons to dislike somebody. You don't hate a person because someone told you to. You have to learn to despise people on a personal level. Not because they're red, or because they're blue, but because ya know them, and you see them every single day. And you can't stand them, because they're a complete and total fucking douchebag.
  • Epsilon (Season 8): I'd like to say that I found her right away, that I just walked into the Epsilon Unit, and there she was, waiting for me. As you can probably guess, it didn't happen that way, but, I know she's in here somewhere, and I'll find her. We always seem to find each other, for better or for worse. I don't know why the Director did what he did. I don't know if he was trying to revive a memory from his past, or if he was just trying to get it out of his head. But I figured out something that the Director didn't. It took Alpha, Delta, and the rest to help piece it together for me, but what I've learned is that a great love is a lot like a good memory. When it's there, and you know it's there, but it's just out of your reach, it can be all that you think about. You can focus on it, and try to force it, but the more you do, the more you seem to push it away. But if you're patient, and you hold still, then maybe... Just maybe... It will come to you. I just need to make sure I'm somewhere she can find me. I think this place is a little different than it was before. See, out there, everything is based on the Alpha, but in here, I guess I'm the Alpha. And maybe this time through, things will be a little different for me as well. I guess I'll find out. And I mean, hell, if you have to live the rest of your life in a memory... you might as well make it a good one.
  • Epsilon (Season 13): It was Doyle who made me realize something I never thought of before. There are so many stories that some brave hero to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everyone lives happily ever after. But the hero never sees gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually makes a difference, they'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just need to have faith. Ain't that a bitch?

There’s occasional mention of the Kira task force in the lowlightprimed tag.
Is that case going on as well?
In LLPs world, is there a Kira that’s killing people?
What stage is Kira in?
Why didn’t he just kill B?
What.

Edit: wow I can’t believe there’s a Kira out there… Kiraing… Right now… What a douchebag.
The moment the rain let up, you appeared together with a rainbow, and ever so lightly, my heart danced through my chest. All this time, I lived my life without knowing what love is, but this pain in my chest tells me that it is you I am thinking of. For whom I have been living all this time? I still don’t know the answer to that question. But I do know that it’s impossible for me to get close to someone, who lives for somebody else.

my dearest younger self,
if I could talk to you, there are so many things I would say. first off:
I love you will all of my heart.
now, you are about to walk into the fire. the fire of life, love, the building of friendships and the destroying of friendships, relationships, blood, sweat, and tears. and you have a heart of gold, my dear. you are talented and you are smart, and you are kind. the reputation you build will follow you forever, so make it a good one. smoke in private, succeed in public. toxic people, beautiful people, strangers, they will all come into your life. you must make judgments based off of what you know, not what others have told you. you must try to love. you must let yourself feel emotions, you are not your father. it is okay to feel, and you are not stupid for having feelings. you are beautiful, and people who say otherwise do not know you. you must take chances and risks, and face the things you are afraid of. as soon as you notice that someone refuses to make time for you, walk away. as soon as you notice that someone could care less about you, walk away. as soon as you feel like an option instead of a priority, walk away. you must accept that all good things come to an end, and you must accept that change is quick. you must accept that past is past, and you must remember to live in the moment and for the future. you must think about your future. come face to face with your demons, look them in the eye and fight them away. you have swam through turbulent seas, and you made it through. your cheeks are tear stained but my darling, you will smile again. letting people go is okay. crying is okay. you are okay, my love, and you will grow up to be strong, independent, and utterly magnificent. much love, your older self
—  things I wish I could have told my younger self // b.k.

also a quick message from my muslim friend to the muslim women in america: if you ever feel the need to stop wearing your hijab due to fear of violence, then that’s okay. allah will understand and forgive. i know i’m “just” a german muslim but american muslims shouldn’t have to live through this, it’s unfair and i want you all to be able to show off your religion with pride, BUT YOUR SAFETY COMES FIRST. allah forgives. please remember you are still valid and loved.

It’s kind of annoying seeing quotes like “the right one won’t make you cry” or never give someone a second chance to hurt you again. I feel like it sends the wrong message and makes people think that relationships are perfect, you’re feelings will never get hurt with the right one because that’s how I felt. I went into relationships thinking if he loved me he wouldn’t hurt my feelings or walk away. Like that’s life. You hurt each other feelings, you make each other cry, you get frustrated and may second guess. But that’s a relationship. It’s not always flowers and sunshine. Shit is HARD. Of course you’re gonna hurt each other’s feelings and you’re gonna cry. You’re gonna snap at each other when you have a bad day. You’re gonna bicker about them not doing the dishes. Nothing is perfect and you have to work on it everyday. Nobody really tells you how hard relationships are. Some things are unforgivable but sometimes shit happens and one of you leaves, it hurts like HELL but makes you realize how much you want each other. I think sometimes you need to fall apart to be reminded of how much you love that person. There’s nothing wrong with giving someone a second chance if you want to because sometimes it actually works out the second time. Im living proof of that and so are many others. I just feel like society paints this fake picture of how relationship are and it’s totally different. You have your good times and pretty bad times. You both have to work at it everyday but I think the hard times makes it more special because you made it through all that and some come out stronger than ever.

✖️ Fear is Irrelevant ✖️
  • "Fear is not real. It is a product of thoughts you create. Do not misunderstand me. Danger is very real. But fear is a choice."
  • As an exchange student, I'll be going to a foreign country for a year by myself all the way across the world. I will be thousands and thousands of miles away from friends, family, and my usual surroundings. When times get tough, I won't be able to go into hiding in a comfort zone I have. I'll have to face those times head on. No hiding. I'll have to find my way around, no calling my parent to help me, guide me. It will be a country I can only get an idea of from the Internet; reading blogs, watching YouTube, google images, and the people who live there or have been there. The culture will be something I have to learn and adapt to. A complete opposite one of my own. I'll be put with strangers who kindly are welcoming a foreigner into their home and somehow find a way to communicate. I will walk unfamiliar roads. The signs on the buildings being unreadable and the people walking through the streets looking nothing like me. I'll stick out as a foreigner. My eyes will have new sites to see and colors to be in awe at. My nose will smell smells that have never been smelled before. I will touch and feel things I've never felt. Taste tastes that are foreign to my taste buds. I'll meet new people; gain friends and family that are by my side through the year. That I share my experiences and make new memories with. Spending everyone moment I have and not wasting one. I will be like a child entering the world for the first time not knowing anything of it. Everything will be new and exciting, but like a child mistakes will be made, but I'll have to learn to embrace those mistakes and make something out of them. After all, aren't those mistakes made so we can learn?
  • I'll change culture and language, and explore to my hearts content the foreign land even if it means getting lost. I'll have to try to take in as much as I can as I only have a year. A year that will change me. I may be this person now, but a year can do a lot to a person. Especially one such as an exchange year. I'll come back as someone else.
  • A question I am asked often is if I'm scared. When you look at it through that perspective; the fact that I will be entering a foreign country. One where I don't know anything. I'll be stepping out of my comfort zone and not be able to step back in for a year. You would think, yes of course you are, but I never tell anyone yes when they ask. I say no because all of that; it does not sound like something I should fear. Fear is irrelevant. Why should I choose to fear such an exciting experience? Be nervous? Yes. But fear? Hell no. This is my year and I will not live in fear of it.

To all of my fellow African American/Black followers, I know it’s hard to deal with the fact that our brothers, sister, uncles, cousins, etc may get racially profiled by cops and it could cost their lives, but we have to have hope and faith that we’ll get through these times! To non-black followers, please stand with us, not against us. #BlackLivesMatter
