My moment with Jay

I never met Jay Deakin. But I did interact with her once. She had posted a picture of her Louis, her son, her first born, her pride and joy. She was bursting with excitement at something he had done, and as a mother of a young child, I admired her dedication to her children.

So. I commented on her Instagram. And I said “Thank you for sharing your son with the world Jay. We don’t deserve him.”

Now, I was very new to fandom, and I didn’t really expect anything, it was just a comment. I didn’t even think she’d read it.

So imagine my surprise when she @’d me and replied: “You most certainly do!”

I have always said that if I was one millionth of one percent the mom she was, I would consider it a job well done.

Sweet sleep and dear rest Jay. ❤️

AMAZING GAME PSA:  OneShot

Hey everyone!

If you like Undertale, there’s a new, gorgeous rpg on steam that just came out, and it’s called OneShot. Your goal is to work together with the protagonist, a child named Nico (a young catlike creature, your smol cat son with the same name as your other smol son in the Percy Jackson series) who suddenly finds himself in a world that’s falling apart. Only he, with your help, can save it. Your goal is to get the world’s energy source, its sun–contained in a large light bulb–to the top of a tower in the center of this world. You only have one shot to do this because if you fail, the world dies. It’s such a beautiful game, please consider playing it!

The hardest part for me so far is that it seems like there is only one save point in each section of the game:  the barrens (part 1), the glen (part 2), and the center of the world (part 3). So when you start the game, please make sure you have around 3 - 4 hours set aside to get through the barrens because you’re not allowed to quit the game until you get to a save point. If you exit the game before you get to a save point, that’s the end of your shot to save the world. 

The world map. From this map, I’m guessing that the game is in three parts. I just completed Part 1 and love the game so far!

Nico and I received a key item!  I’m so proud of him.  :3

Also, there’s a female engineer named Silver who helps you out. Hooray for women in science and engineering!

tl;dr:  You should definitely play this game.  :D

     It had only been a loaf of bread.

     At least, that is what the blonde had initially thought about the situation. However, it seems that the various vendors within the shady part of the city thought otherwise. Obviously with them not sympathetic to the needs of an otherwise starving child, Tara had taken it upon herself to use her thieving skills to use and swipe one of the loaves from the man’s stand. Quickly and quietly did she offer the loaf to the young child, though her sneaky efforts were not easily read by the child and as such, they exclaimed their thanks to the young monarch.

     Various men now look to her figure, the girl now taking notice of how… Well, unlike any other person they seemed to be like. Obviously they were a part of a gang or something far bigger than what they appear to be and to have someone so easily swipe their wares didn’t sit well with them. With all eyes now on her (surrounding her from all sides, as well), Tara Grimface can only go over the options within her head.

     A talker she is not, so the idea of attempting to negotiate with them is out of the question… Not only that, but the blonde wouldn’t want to, seeing as these men are all of the unsavoury type. Fighting her way out would be all too easy… If she had her full arsenal of cards with her. With only one card currently in her inventory, trying to take all of them on would be a bad idea.

     However, it seems like it’s the only option she currently has.

     So drawing out her one and only Lizardman card, the young thief readies herself for the fight to come. She figures that using the card as a distraction and running out of the crowd would be a good enough plan given her speed and flexibility… Still, it’s risky.

     As she gives an exhale and readies her arm to use the card within her hand, a sudden flash of red makes its way onto the scene… And then all over it. Clearly not the only one surprised and confused, both Tara and the group of men now follow the crimson streak with widened optics, curious to know just what or who it could be…

PLZ MOAR PAPA ARDYN HEADCANNONS~!!!!

Spoilers

Wow I’ve gotten so many of these! You guys must like my Ardyn stuff lol since I finished the game it’s kind of hard for me to write papa Ardyn now…having seen his true colors as it were….
I really wanted to keep him in character so, I think some of you may not like the answers I have however, I think I’ve come to a pretty good medium…

(I love and hate Ardyn requests now…because I grew to feel rather awful things towards him…especially after what I believe HE did to Ravus….)

Papa Ardyn really does care about his child and he would rather not introduce her to the cruelty of the world however, he knows this is inevitable. The upbringing as a young child was rather happy however, as the child grew older Ardyn became more stern. He made sure they knew how to fight, they knew how politics worked, and furthermore they knew what they were fighting for…(However bent he has to make the truth to get them to stay on his side)
It’s unfortunate, but Ardyn plants their lives with lies, just as he did with everyone else. He puts off the truth for as long as he can. Luckily he has a lot of friends in high places so pulling strings to make sure his child stays on the path he wants for them is not a difficult task.

Female Chief Terminates 850 Child Marriages in Malawi and Sends Girls Back to School | Viral Women
A Malawian female chief has established a new law to prevent child marriage in Malawi and has terminated approximately 850 child marriages across the country to date.
By WRN Editor

According to a 2012 United Nations survey, more than half of Malawi’s girls are married before the age of 18. In addition, the country is ranked 8th out of 20 countries believed to have the highest child marriage rates in the world. Chief Kachindamoto is changing this one step at a time and has begun by annulling more than 850 child marriages, sending hundreds of young women back to school to continue their education, and by making astonishing strides to abolish cleansing rituals that require young girls to go to sexual initiation camps.

This is amazing. She’s like a real-life superhero.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
