connecting rings


Trump White House asked FBI to shoot down a story, violating rules on communication

  • Trump’s top White House officials went to the FBI earlier this month to ask that they push back against media reports that Trump officials had communicated with the Russians during the campaign, per CNN.
  • According to CNN, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus went to FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to persuade the FBI to dispute the Feb. 14 reports that say Trump officials spoke to the Russians.
  • This would be a violation of long-standing rules that prohibit the White House from talking to the FBI about pending inquiries. Read more (2/23/17 9:52 PM)

On heels of FBI news, Trump decries leaks

  • Trump once again decried the leaks coming from the FBI about his administration’s alleged connections to Russia.
  • Trump’s concerns ring hollow as seen above, his own staffers only recently asked the FBI to leak information.
  • The hypocrisy and coincidental timing of Trump’s tweets was not lost on political pundits on Twitter. Read more (2/24/17 9:22 AM)

I am seeing things so differently during this reread of ACOTAR/MAF. Until this point, I’ve always read this passage and thought that the Weaver stopped singing because the ring was touched. 

But now I think it had nothing to do with the ring at all. The Weaver never should have sensed Feyre’s presence.

“She will not notice a knife, as she has knives in her cottage for eating and her work. But things that are out of place–objects that have not been there  … A sword, a bow and arrow … She might sense those things.”

“If we’re correct about your powers,” he said, “if the Bone Carver wasn’t lying to us, then you and the object will have the same … imprint, thanks to the preserving spells I placed on it long ago. You are one and the same. She will not notice your presence so long as you touch only it. You will be invisible to her.” (ACOMAF pg. 211-12)

Feyre never felt the presence and tug of the ring until she realized she and Rhys were one in the same. At that moment, her magic…Rhysand’s magic…connected with the ring, and the two recognized each other as one. Like calls to like. 

The Weaver never noticed Feyre at this point because her newly Made essence was that of something that already existed in the cottage. The Weaver has some trinket or other from every High Lord, and Feyre is made up of each of them. There was nothing out of the ordinary.

That is…until Feyre reconnected with her human fear and memory. And that’s when all Hell broke loose.

( … ) soaking that human part of me that hadn’t died and belonged to no one but my miserable self. (ACOMAF pg. 221 - emphasis mine)

The Weaver had nothing of the human Feyre amongst her hoarded baubles. Feyre’s humanity, her mortal soul, stuck out like a sore thumb.

Why is this passage significant? The ability to go completely undetected by the most feared and horrendous creature in all of Prythian (the Weaver of the Wood), so powerful and evil that even Amarantha had kept her distance, might play a humungous role in ACOWAR. Feyre could potentially use this power to a war-altering advantage. And I hope she does. You slay, Lady!

Honestly, I don’t know. We’ll have to wait a few more days to find out. But I was super hyped at this realization and thought I’d share. 

Davai! (Or why Otayuri actually wins the world)

(Tweets by @Aki_the_Geek)

I’ve been thinking a lot about this comment of Kubo-sensei’s. It’s just the most adorable thing I have read in a while. I am not the biggest Otayuri fan, but only mostly because they’re seriously too young for me at this point. I do like their tandem, however, and I am enjoying the attention they are getting recently with the official photos and everything.

This comment, though, just paints such a cute picture for me: Otabek as a god of victory, like a mystical butterfly who ignores and flits past everyone else but chooses to rest on one particular mortal’s shoulder and bless him with strength and victory.

Listen, this is what is great about what Kubo-sensei said. Yuuri Katsuki has the gold rings that connect him to Viktor as his lucky charm - we know this. BUT! Yuri Plisetsky’s lucky charm, on the other hand, is Otabek Altin.

Yuri’s a great character. He is an angry teenager, but also a talented one who has big dreams and the actual skills to achieve those dreams. From the very beginning, we know this. It was even a point he has above Yuuri Katsuki.

He aims to win and does not see what others might consider obstacles. So what if it will be his first Grand Prix? He’s awesome. He won the juniors series. He can win as a senior, too.

Yuri, however, is also very immature. He is pretty poor at expressing himself and seems to shortcut through having to process most personal encounters and interactions by just being angry all the time. Affection for others embarrasses him, which is why he gets so high-strung around Viktor and Yuuri.

(I can’t really blame the kid, though. Those two just have no chill. They’re embarrassing.)

Interestingly though, Yuri seemed to calm down after Otabek came in the picture. It’s a complete 180. Yuri still had that passion, but somehow it became more tempered, less angry and more focused - so much so that the moment Otabek came in, Yuri broke a world record and then proceeded to win his first Grand Prix Final.

I am not saying that it is Otabek’s doing, like an actual god of victory. That would be ridiculous, and it’s more an expression than anything else. The timing is just pretty neat, and isn’t that how people develop lucky charms in the first place? You happen to have them right at the moment of a great win. It is also not as if Otabek was completely useless. He did provide a friend to Yuri, who thus far had been going on without someone he can actually call a friend. Everyone around him were either older than him, a competitor, a mentor or a teacher. I think Otabek calmed Yuri down by reminding him that he can just be himself… well, a cool version of himself anyway. Yuri actually sort of acted his age with Otabek around. For instance, this?

I thought Yuri was kind of cool-guy-posing here - you know, acting chill, even looks kind of smug. Lol, this reminded me so much of my younger brother when he was about Yuri’s age. He was such a useless brat at home and was pissed off at everything and nothing 99% of the time, but the moment his friends came over or one of them called him on the phone, he sort of became this cool version of himself - wittier, sharper, less fidgety. Lmao, his voice even became deeper. Smh at these boys…

What I also love about Otabek’s character is that he reminds us of Yuri’s name. Names are a big deal, okay, and I thought that Yuri being Yurio was kind of like him being a secondary character to Yuuri Katsuki - Yuuri #2, if you will. Ever since episode 2, Yuri is Yurio, and for every episode hence, he is Yurio. It was actually a bit of a shock to me when Otabek yelled this out in episode 11:

I was literally, “Oh yeah, that’s Yurio’s name.” I know Yakov and Lilia call Yurio by his name, but somehow it was when Otabek was calling him by this did Yurio become Yuri to me again. My theory is that it is Otabek’s manner, this I-know-you-call-him-Yurio-and-I-don’t-care-because-his-name-is-Yuri attitude he has going, that is somehow more convincing than anyone else. It is as if no one else matters in his world than Yuri Plisetsky. It is ridiculous to call him by anything other than his name because to Otabek, Yuri is Yuri #1. He probably calls Yuuri “the other Yuri”, “the Japanese Yuri” or just plain “Katsuki”.

So yeah, Otabek enters Yuri’s life and now Yuri has that source of affirmation that is outside family, who is a peer and even a close contemporary. He is no longer fighting alone. Yuri’s a strong guy, but he is still a kid, and at that age people can be quite vulnerable. No 15-year-old is so self-sufficient and self-confident that they can stand on their own at all times - at least not to my knowledge. That is why I love this friendship and why I love that Otabek came along. I think his coming triggered something that Yuri has long been building throughout the series but has yet to stabilize - his strength, his growth, his maturity as a skater as well as a person.

And actually, Yuri did win in the end. I think the series did not celebrate Yuri’s win enough and admittedly, even I was on such a high during those last weeks of the show that I could not be happy for him all that much. Episode 11? I couldn’t get over Yuri’s world record; I did not want to see Viktor dethroned. By episode 12, I still couldn’t look Yuri in the face. I was bitter about his world record and I was bitter about Yuuri Katsuki not winning the Grand Prix.

BUT, it’s time to face it: Yuri Plisetsky is amazing. He won the GPF on his senior debut. He beat a world record. His coach is obviously grooming him to be the next Viktor Nikiforov, and actually, the series has been hinting at it before hitting us on the face with it in episode 11 - Yuuri Katsuki is not the next Viktor Nikiforov, but Yuri Plisetsky is. What is more amazing is that he might even surpass Viktor, especially with Yuuri Katsuki as his main rival. Viktor never really had that one rival to push him up further than he thinks he can. We are told that his wins had wide margins from his other competitors. Viktor only had himself to beat each and every time. Yuri, on the other hand, won by a hair’s width and he knows it. He is even more driven now. He will push himself harder than Viktor ever had pushed himself, and that just might tip the scale a little bit more to future Yuri’s favor.

As for Otabek? Nah, he actually does not need to do anything. He is a lucky charm; he just needs to exist. With him around, Yuri is stable, and that’s all that this talented monster skater needs really.

Lol, look at this guy just watching his favorite so proudly:

“I’m not really needed here, but fuck if I’m not staying put to watch and join the cheering.”

Otayuri actually has a lot more going for them, future-wise. They are young, they are talented, and where Viktor and Yuuri are still struggling and see-sawing between victories and losses, Otayuri actually kept a steady climb. We already know and mentioned Yuri’s wins, but Otabek was also actually that steady character from the very beginning who skated well without question and was even the first to qualify for the GPF.

So, yes. In case you are asking, Otayuri is, in fact, the real power couple of the show.

Lmao, TL;DR - Otayuri just trumped Viktuuri and ultimately even stole their gold. The secondary OTP lowkey just beat the main OTP and I, albeit a hardcore Viktuuri shipper and just an Otayuri bystander at best, still find that really hilarious.

|| True Love ||

[prompt: soulmate au where you and your soulmate are connected by a visible red string where only a few people can see.]

ohhh boy, this is going to be told in a different way than most of my other peter parker imagines in that there is a third character involved (much like how ||a different story|| was) and how it is based on reader and peter’s relationship through THEIR eyes.

Once you read the story, you’ll know what I mean ;)

**don’t plagiarize/repost this story. reblogs are fine**


Flash never knew the reason why he was given this ‘gift’ of being able to see everyone’s red string of fate.

Now, being a sophomore in high school, Flash didn’t need to worry about seeing any of the red strings connected to anyone else since everyone was too young to have found their soulmate at such an early age. Sure, it was an annoyance to see the constant bits of red in his periphery, but in a way, the young man was used to it.

anonymous asked:

Would you be willing to share some of your thoughts about Yuri's motivation over the rings, at least? I'd be curious to read your thoughts especially since that scene in particular has a lot of cultural terminology and background that doesn't translate perfectly for International audiences to begin with.

This is a hard one because, as you wrote, I think there are cultural differences especially regarding the concept of “omamori” (protective charms).

First of all it would be very useful to read this interesting and complete post about “omamori”. Although regarding the part about the rings being round and that symbolizing a bond I’m not sure, I think that might be reading too deeply. At the end there’s also my comment on the meaning of the word “omajinai”, which is also not that easy to translate…

This said, the rest under the cut. Of course this is just my personal interpretation based on the Japanese dialogues in the anime and partly on interviews (I think it doesn’t even clash with the “soulmates” thing in the interview from CREA). All quotes from the dialogues are translated by me and do not use the English sub/dub. I am translating “omamori” as “protective charm”.

Warning: it’s kind of long and has pictures because if I don’t explain it thoroughly it might be hard to get my point across.

White String of Fate || Peter Parker x Reader

warnings: none; although lets be real Peter would do something like this bc he’s such a nerd (/ω\)

**i apologize for any errors, since I wrote this all on my phone. I’ll fix any mistakes later once I post this**

**dont plagiarize/repost this story lmao it’s not all that great anyways


It was late at night, and you had just completed your evening classes when you began your trek back to your dorm. Feeling too tired to eat anything, you figured you could just treat yourself to a hearty breakfast in the morning.

All you wanted to do was sleep now.

While you were walking, you didn’t think your left ring finger would get caught in a spider’s web, momentarily catching you off guard. You groan and try to free your finger, only to fail miserably. You couldn’t deny the resistance you felt when you tried to pull your finger out of the white material, “What on earth, how??”

Looking down at your left hand, you watch as the durable webbing remained stuck against the back of your finger, already knowing who it was that caught you. With a sigh, you follow the long trail of synthetic webbing and look up to see Peter Parker, your boyfriend of 5 years, settled on top of a tree.

He whistles, tugging at the webbing that connected your ring finger to the webshooter on his wrist, “Would you look at that, the white string of fate has brought us together. We’re soulmates, [Name].”

You smile at your boyfriend’s antics, lovingly caressing at the makeshift string before responding, “You goof, it’s called the red string of fate, not white.”

Peter rolls his eyes and shrugs, “Eh, same difference.” Peter drops down in front of you, jostling the web that still remained on your ring finger. “Regardless, the fact that we’re connected by this string of fate means that we belong together.”

“Peter, you’re so silly.” You ruffle his messy locks of hair with a look of complete adoration in your eyes, “I don’t need a silly string of fate to know that I’m yours. I’m yours because I love you.”

Peter sighs, and you notice the blush that paints his cheeks when he tears his thin web off of your finger, “Then I guess I’ll just need to put something else on your finger that shows that you belong to me.”

You open your mouth, about to question him when you saw Peter get down on one knee. All of the words you wanted to say dies against your throat as a gasp escaped from your lips when Peter tells you, “[Full Name], you are the kindest and most beautiful woman I had ever met. My life with you in it has been made so much better, and I feel like I can do anything as long as you are here beside me.”

You watch with happy tears welling within your eyes when Peter pulls out a black velvet box, showing you the simple yet elegant diamond ring settled within it, “I want to love and protect you for the rest of my life, so [Name], will you marry me?”

“Oh, God- Peter! Yes! Of course I’ll marry you, you lovable nerd!” Your boyfriend (now fiancé) stands up, taking the ring out of the confines of its box before sliding it on your ring finger.

It was the perfect fit.

“Thank you so much, [Name]. You’ve made me the happiest man in the world.” Peter places a gentle kiss against the finger that wore his ring, making your heart swell with even more love for the man standing in front of you.

You laugh as the tears streamed from your eyes, hanging on to Peter when he suddenly picked you up to twirl you around. After a few cycles, Peter stops spinning you around and keeps holding you in his arms bridal style. You felt the droplet of your tears land against his sweater before resting your head against his forehead, absolutely adoring the gentle shade of his brown eyes, “And you have made me the happiest girl in the world.”

Peter kisses the tip of your nose before murmuring the words that made you tremble with immense joy. “Let’s get you home, Mrs. Parker.”


Bucky Barnes Imagine

Requested: Anonymous

Imagine: can you do a bucky barnes imagine where you celebrate bucky’s birthday and you arrive and it was time for him to open presents. and so as bucky opens your present, you sneak out the back and leave the building. you leave bucky completely confused and worried, and than he says he wants to drop everything, he doesn’t care that it was his birthday, he wanted to find you. and know that you were safe. fluff plz! thx, i love your writing so so much!!

A/N: love you to nonny <3

Warning: fluff

Whispers were spreading all around the building, there was a cake waiting to be lighted. The lights were dimmed low so it seemed that nobody was there, you were waiting in the livingroom, the curtains were blocking the light from shining in. You look over at Steve who was watching out when Bucky gets back from shopping, you sent him off to get some random stuff so you could throw him a surprise birthday party. He had no idea that you were coming back, and he hasn’t seen you in two years, so two surprises in one night! The whole morning the team made him think that they totally forgot about his birthday.

 And it seemed that Bucky was actually believeing it, which was the plan. Steve’s eyes went wide and he snapped his head towards everybody who was chattering.

‘’Guys! Bucky’s back! Hide!’’ steve demanded, diving to the ground.

Tony slapped the lights off and the room went pitch black, you kept running into people because you didn’t know where you were going. You felt around and finally just hid underneath some kind of table, as you crouched down, you hear the door open and you look towards the door. Bucky enters and flickers the lights on.

‘’SURPRISE!!’’ everybody yells, popping up from out of their hiding space.

OUaT - Thoughts on Proposals & Weddings

All hiatus long I’ve been thinking about the Captain Swan proposal spoiler. When I first started thinking about a CS proposal and wedding, I was wondering if anything could be extrapolated from the Snowing and Rumbelle proposal scenes to give a clue as to how a CS proposal might go down. It seemed a natural progression to also look at the Snowing and Rumbelle wedding scenes to see if anything could be taken from those scenes as well to predict what could happen in a Captain Swan wedding.  Now that we have a hint that that a CS wedding could happen this season as well, I decided to put everything down in one post and get it out there before it’s too late.

Two caveats before I start rambling on – First, Emma is A&E’s original princess, OUaT is her origin story and her journey to finding her happy ending by finding her family, her home, and her TL.  Because of that, I think it would make sense for Emma’s engagement and wedding to break the mold, if there is one, and have each of those occasions be something completely unique to her and Killian instead of a mirror or parallel the one that have come before. [Not that I’m letting that stop me from making this post!]  

Second, I’m using Snowing’s first wedding for the basis of this comparison/analysis because it is the one we were able to view in its entirety, and the more spiritual union versus the second, interrupted wedding, which seemed likely to have been performed more for the public.

Ok, now on with, well, with whatever this is…

Summary of Analysis Applied to Emma & Killian:

  1. The location of the proposal, whether the proposal itself is spontaneous or planned, should be some place that is symbolic of Emma and Killian’s power as a couple.  
  2. The “ring” (i.e., the item exchanged at the moment of the proposal), I think, will be something that holds meaning to Killian, and something Emma already knows about and how much it means to him.  
  3. The location of the wedding, again, whether the event is spontaneous or planned, should be somewhere that is symbolic of hope and restoration to both Emma and Killian.  
  4. Finally, the person performing the ceremony should be someone whose persona represents the core value of Emma and Killian as a couple.

Heart Like Yours, Heart Like His

For @becaamm ‘s challenge.

Here’s the song



“I hate this.”

“I know you do.” Tony watched as one of his little robots (one of the ones you called ‘cute’) rolled out to the car, bag in hand. “I hate it too, y’know.”

“Do you really have to leave?”

“If I didn’t, I wouldn’t.” Tony turned you towards him, his hands heavy on your shoulders. “Y/N, I promise, these next few days will go by quickly.”

“I know. I know.” Four days. Tony was only going to be gone four days.

It was stupid, freaking out like this. You’d never really had such a connection to anyone before. Previous boyfriends were just… distractions. Ways to pass the weeks, months, years. But once you’d met Tony… everything had changed. You were so dependent on him. Not physically or financially (though he did like to spoil you), but emotionally.

“You sure you’re going to be all right here by yourself?” Tony asked, drawing you from your own thoughts. “I can get someone to come stay with you. Natasha, or maybe Vision.”

You shook your head. “I’ll be fine. Promise.”

Tony smiled. Just then, his watch beeped: it was time for him to go. He pulled you into a hug, pressing a kiss to your forehead before stepping out the door.

“I’ll call you!” he said.

“You’d better.”


Tony flopped back onto the mattress. The hotel room was cushy enough, but nowhere near the comforts of home. Reaching blindly into his bag, Tony felt around until he felt the cool metal. He pulled out the picture frame and held it above him, studying the picture he’d looked at for hours and hours.

It was a picture of you two from the night you’d dragged him to the carnival. You’d insisted that people went to those for ‘fun’. Tony had let you drag him all around, to all the food vendors, to all the rides. In the midst of your fun, a sullen teenager asked you two to pose for a photo. Tony hadn’t wanted to, but you’d pulled him into you, your faces pressing together so that he could feel your smile against his cheek.

Tony loved this picture. He’d scanned it and made a digital copy, so it would never be lost, but whenever he had to go on a trip he always brought this physical copy with him. Silly as it was, it made him feel closer to you.

“FRIDAY, call Y/N.”

Tony listened as the call connected, ringing on the other end.

“I was wondering when you were going to call,” you said, smile in your voice.

“What, did you think I’d forgotten about you?”

“Amnesia is more common than you think.”

Tony smiled. “I could never forget about you.”


The two of you talked well into the night, but Tony eventually heard sleep creeping into your voice. He said goodnight, promising to call you tomorrow.

Once he got settled in bed, Tony plucked the other piece of home from his bag, this one involving a bit of tech. He lay there, in the dark, curled around the pillow that held your heart.

Well, your heartbeat.

Tony had manufactured this piece a few months ago, before his first trip away from you. Inside was a heart monitor, one that was connected to you. No matter where he went, when he touched this pillow, he felt your heartbeat.

You had one at home, connected to a heart monitor he was wearing.

Tony closed his eyes, feeling the rhythmic thumping of your heart. Anytime he felt this, anytime he looked at that picture, anytime he simply thought about you, the same question popped into his mind: how could a heart like yours ever fall for, ever connect to, ever love a heart like his?


You lay in bed, running your hand over the pillow Tony had made for you, feeling his heartbeat beneath your palm. It was a poor replacement for the actual thing, but you made do.

The pillow beneath your head smelled of Tony’s shampoo (you knew he knew that you slept on his pillow when he was gone, but he never seemed to complain). You were also sleeping in one of his t-shirts, trying to surround yourself with him.

In another life, if it was anyone else doing this, you would’ve called them pathetic.

But you knew what it really was—love. Tony had opened your eyes to this sensation, this way of life.

And you never wanted to close your eyes again.

I’m in the middle of my maturity diploma, I shouldn’t be doing this
ok, but I will take this ask as an opportunity to tell my followers some “technical matters”, I hope you don’t mind

-All my knowledge of english langue is from NSFW ff and tumblr ranst, so be ready for mistakes in all of my posts

-At first I named her “Dawn” because of that Ray Chase tweet.
However, one day I was listening to “Somnus” and word “Auroram” near the end really caught my attention. Because of that I started to think that “Aurora” would be a better fit to latin themes in the story. Still, I have nothing against it when people tag her as “Dawn” in reblogs. It’s the same word, but in english. (And I will probably call her Ari)

-As long as I will be credited - you can draw her, also send your asks, headcanons, things you want me to draw (after 15th I will have like 5 months of vacation so….)

So, about my sweet granddaughter
Ugh, I have so many headcanons and don’t have time for all, so let’s go with childhood for now

-ofc she lives in “everyone lives and are happy!” AU

-She was born really fast, I think Noct was 21 or 22

-When Noct & Luna found out that they are expecting a daughter they were pretty sure she is going to be the next oracle

-HOWEVER the same day she was born Gentiana looked at her and said “Nay, she’s not”  

- She have two siblings - brother (3 years younger) and sister (8 years younger)

-She have her father’s color palette, but big round eyes, hair structure and pale skin just like her mother

-She may have a brother, but still, as a firstborn and not an oracle, she is the heir to the Lucian throne. I think if you’re capable of wielding power to summon gods, use magicial crystal and a ring that connect you with your death ancestors, what you have between your legs isn’t a big deal (and she will not be a “Queen”. She will be called “King Aurora Lucis Caelum CXV”)

- She likes to play with only two of her many toys: a chocobo plush and a rubber-plush toy sword that looks like a big key

-Theres a story behind it: she may not remember it, but one time when she was like 2 or 3 Insomnia had some special guests, and she was really interested in sword that one of them was wielding (I mean “give it to me or I will cry for next two weeks” type of interested), so daddy ordered to make a safe for kid replica of it

-When it comes to that chocobo plush - she may or may not made a paper crown for it and sometimes put it on the throne or Noct’s dining chair

-in this family you can argue with dad, but mom’s words are absolute

-When she is going somewhere inside the citadel with her dad she never uses her feets. Her house is too huge for a little girl so big uncle’s back is a perfect option for her

-In 15 years she will be wondering why there’s a lot of really random photos of her

-“I’m lying down while crying in this one, why tf instead of helping me he decide to take a shot?!”

-This uncle may be blind, but no one on Eos can braid your hair like he can

-Everybody knows that animals shouldn’t be a birthday gift, but she was so happy about her new property that matches her hair perfectly and lives at the Wiz Chocobo Post
