>> Capture the Flag

Will and Nico have to be on opposing teams in capture the flag because if they were on the same team, there’s no way the other would win. ((Reyna and Nico think they’re such badasses but it’s okay cause they totally are.))

Will trying to use his sunlight control to throw Nico off his shadow-traveling game. Golden. ahaha. ((Mansi’s sunlight-controlling headcanon. His art is awesome, you should check them out!!))

On the deck of the Argo II, Percy and Jason stood together, their swords crossed. Annabeth got a tingle down her spine as she realized the boys were working together, summoning the sky and the sea to do their bidding.

I’ve been wanting to draw this scene for a while now, so here’s my rendition of it, along with a close-up so you can better see the characters. I think Percy and Jason came out alright (:

These Stunning Images Capture The Beauty & Grace Of India’s “Third Gender”

For years, the hijras of India — people who identify as belonging to a “third gender” — held a special place in society.

“Hijras were both revered and feared as powerful entities who lived between the sexes,” according to photographer Jill Peters. “They were believed to bestow good fortune and fertility by dancing at weddings and the births of children.“

Prayer for the People of the Philippines

Heavenly Father, we ask You to protect and bless the people of the Philippines, especially in Marawi. Send Your Holy Spirit upon them and fill them with the courage, grace, and strength they need to be faithful to You in the face of danger or death.  Send men and women to protect them and  keep their churches, homes and country free from Maute an ISIS inspired terrorist group.  We trust You are sending legions of angels to protect and defend Your faithful people in the Philippines.  

Lord, we also ask You to heal the terror and psychological damage that these attacks are having upon the people of the Philippines.   People fear for themselves and their loved ones.  Please, please be with them.  

Gather those who have died into Your loving arms and carry them into Heaven where they can rest in peace forever among the angels and saints.  Comfort and console the grieving.  

Protect the lives of those who have been captured.  Grant them every grace they need in this moment.  Calm their fears and fill them with Your Spirit.  Help them to be strong and faithful to You and fill them with Your love and a true spirit of forgiveness.  We pray they will be returned home unharmed.  Amen.

Fallen

They were seven.

They were destined to greatness.

They were destined to command, but also to serve.

Seven whose natures were once so untarnished that no poet could ever express the purity of their essences in a mere verse.

Seven so beautiful that no artist had ever managed to capture their grace with a brush or chisel.

They were seven.

Seven like the seven stars of the seven churches in Asia.

Seven who had become stained, polluted, unfitting for the role they had been given.

They were destined to greatness, but also to suffer seven times the punishment for their sins.

They were seven, and they were in pain.

Tales of Zestiria: A Time of Guidance Volume 1 Review

Both versions of Tales of Zestiria: Michibiki no Toki/A Time of Guidance, Japanese version on the left, English version on the right.  Alternate color Sorey and Mikleo dolls commissioned from @moonwhing, Soymilk Armatus wallpaper drawn by @dejinyucu.

Guess what came in today?  My copy of volume 1 of the English version of the Zestiria manga!  (Yes, I love this game enough to actually want a copy of the manga in both languages!)  And no table flipping levels of VELVET RAGE like I did with the Trainwreck, at least, not for this volume.  I promise.  And actually that’s true for the rest of the manga, especially if the translation quality keeps up.  Rest behind a cut because since when have any of my Zestiria related review posts been short?

TL;DR: Artwork is gorgeous, characterization is spot on, events and dungeons may have been skipped/rearranged, but you’re still getting the story and the lore as told in the game.  There’s a few minor nitpicks with the translation itself (I did read this with the original Japanese version next to me as you can see from my picture above) but these are so minor they didn’t really diminish my enjoyment of the story any.  10/10, this is the adaptation Zestiria deserves, totally worth buying both versions.

Just in case anyone is wondering, Lio and I are working on a trick in which he gets up on his hind legs so I can hold him up as he stares into my eyes.

We are weirdly intense friends.

anonymous asked:

Grace telling Jefferson that it's time for him to officially make you his wife and her mom because she loves her so much and thinks that her papa is wasting time not being married to her and giving her a baby brother/sister. This in turn makes him realize that not only have you captured his heart but also Grace's and he wouldn't choice anyone else to spend the rest of his life with raising Grace and your future kid(s)

“You really want her as your mom?” Jefferson asks one day in the forest but he know the answer. 

“Yes, daddy” Grace answers. 

“Well that settles it, let’s go tell her” Jefferson playfully grabs her and puts him over his shoulder.

Jungle Man - Ch. 3

Summary: After having (Y/N)’s father returning to the camp, (Y/N) sends Ben off. Misunderstanding what she meant in her gestures, Ben assumes he is no longer allowed to return to her camp. Solemn and in a funk, Ben’s attitude notably changes. (Y/N) also goes into a funk, wishing Ben would return as he was the most interesting thing she had encountered in the jungle thus far.

A/N: This is definitely not nearly as long as other chapters or fics I write, but again, didn’t want to overkill with filler content. I would also definitely appreciate some ideas of HC’s for the future chapters with this one :) Send em in and let me know! Feedback is welcome. 


Walking out of your tent, you extended your arms into a good wide stretch as you released a faint yawn. Looking before you, you saw the same view of the camp site, hardly moved in the slightest. Even after being at this exact sight for months on end, it seemed as though your place here was frozen in time. You followed almost the exact same routine, went to the exact same locations, even your father hardly strayed from his usual routine. 

It was comfortable, but your blaringly loud thoughts of adventure almost constantly reminded you of what you truly wanted. 

This was the Congo, not the city scape of Africa, but the untouched and thriving jungle and yet you hadn’t experienced much of what you knew was out there. Though you had seen many beautiful sights and stunning animals, you had really only scratched the surface. There was so much more to be discovered. So much more awaiting you just a few yards away. 

The one thing that you had experienced, still unable to shake it from your mind, was meeting Ben. An afternoon you were sure was going to be like all of the rest with you sitting quietly and enjoying a good book put you into a whole new journey. Despite it only being a short amount of time, it was whirlwind and in your time here thus far, you had never felt so alive. The way your heart beat so quickly, the moment your feet left the ground and flew through the air, the elated joy you felt showing Ben around.
