“One can imagine a sane, healthy, cheerful human society based on no more than the principles of common sense, as validated each day by work, play and living experience. But this remains the most utopian and fantastic of ideals.
If America could be, once again, a nation of self-reliant farmers, craftsmen, hunters, ranchers, and artists, then the rich would have little power to dominate others. Neither to serve nor to rule: That was the American dream.”
(I couldn’t sleep last night so I decided to be a nerd and make these. I’d actually never watched this recording before so that was fun! It’s interesting how much you miss of what’s happening on stage when you’re in the back dancing, but on the other hand this video doesn’t depict any of the fun things that were going on over where I was, so I guess it goes both ways! Inferno shows are pretty much 2 performances for the price of 1- one by the band on stage, and the other on the floor by the audience. The former you can see above, and the latter you’ll just have to come to a show to experience for yourself!)
Good luck on your blog! Could I request a scene in which Toshiro is jealous over his S/O? Like someone is being a bit to touchy with them? Thank you.
“Just what do you think you’re doing?” Toshiro growled. He tugged you away from the other man, pushing you behind him to shield you.
Relief filled you and you gripped the back of his shirt in your hand, peering over his shoulder at the standoff going on. The other man, new to the squad, looked almost smug as he towered over you and Toshiro.
“We were just having a conversation. Ain’t that right?” he sneered, eyes glinting as they slid over to you.
Quickly, you pulled back to hide your face from him. You could swear you heard Toshiro growl, and missed the narrowing of his eyes.
“It looked like a lot more than that.” His hand twitched, ready to lay the man out, but reigned the urge in. The guy wasn’t worth the trouble it would cause.
As he led you away, he mentally stored the man’s face for later. He was going to get the shittiest details Toshiro could find.
Fluffy scenario of Aizens s/o being scared of him when he gained power with the arrancars, so he tries to show them, that the man they loved is still there. :)
He had never seen that look in your eyes, and you had never backed away like that before. When he reached out to you, you flinched. It filled him with a strange mix of emotions, the most prominent being sadness and hurt.
”____, are you frightened of me?” he asked. He hadn’t meant to let his feelings seep into his words, but they had.
With shaking hands, you pushed yourself up as you regarded him warily.
“Have you seen yourself?” you choked out, hands clenching into fist. “You tried to kill people, tried to have people killed, and not to mention you kidnapped me.”
He closed his eyes, sitting in the edge of the bed. You were the only person he allowed himself to be so vulnerable around purely out of trust. “I couldn’t bear the thought of leaving you behind.”
His words struck a chord and you looked down at your feet. “I don’t understand.”
"Don’t understand what?” he asked, looking at you. “How much you have meant to me? How much I care for you?”
You bit your lip, taking hesitant steps until you stood in front of him. “Really?”
He took your hand, pressing it to his cheek as he looked up at you.
“I have lied about many things without remorse. That has never been one of them.”
Steve Gardiner, who’s been teaching high school English in Montana for the past 38 years, says when it comes to grading English essays he’s ready to make a change that will lessen the workload on his red pen — and yes, it involves grammar.
“As a high school English teacher, I have been crossing out the singular use of the word ‘they’ for many years. I have burned up hundreds of red pens, and hours of time, correcting this grammatical usage based on a traditional gender binary of he and she. It’s time to move on.
Although there is historical precedent, writers like Shakespeare and Chaucer and many others who used a singular “they,” most language experts throughout the 20th century saw this usage as an error. Language evolves over time and often social changes bring about modifications in word use. The issue of the missing singular gender-neutral pronoun is one of those situations.
That’s why I cheered when the American Dialect Society met in Washington, D.C., recently and voted to make the word ‘they’ acceptable and correct when used as a gender-neutral singular pronoun. The change comes during a time of unprecedented discussion about gender identity issues.”
After a long day at practice, he figured that he would relax for a couple hours. And by that, he meant watching a drama he had yet to get into. Yunhyeong could forever spoil several for him, but he wasn’t going to give him the chance to. “Cheer Up, High Society, Oh My Venus..” Hanbin scrolled through his watch list and sighed, until he reached one. “Strong Woman Bongsoon. Of course.” He pressed play before he pulled up the covers, fluffed his pillows and readied himself comfy.
