country special

I know everyone likes to laugh at Cinder managing to find Dr. Erland since Africa is, you know, a massive fucking continent but I’m rereading Cinder and he specifically says “I’ve decided to go where the first cases of letumosis were documented, in a small town east of the Sahara Desert” so at least that makes some sense

Oikawa Tooru for  @shizumar​ ♥ ♡

Merry Christmans Mar!!Hope you have a wonderful day!!I was so happy to be your secret santa!! Χρόνια Πολλά, καλά Χριστούγεννα και καλές γιορτές!! ♥ ♡ ♥ ♡

Good night to everyone, but especially Jamie Oleksiak. I don’t know where you are or what you’re doing, but I hope you’re out surfing or watching baseball or sitting on your couch playing Xbox and downing Bud Lite (or all of the above) and living your best life. Proud of u bud.

so! since mr. keneti james apa is becoming increasingly popular in celeb & bandom communities due to riverdales instantly popularity i’ve figured it’d be fun to put together a little resource of new zealand slang and other terms under the cut that you need to know when playing a new zealander. so often people are assuming he’s australian (stop this. do not do this. as funny as it is just don’t. it’s like assuming ireland & scotland are the same place). here you will find as much new zealand slang and tid bits of information that i can think of in order to help you understand our special little country and it’s quirks! also please remember kj is raised in a part samoan family and that’s a very important aspect of his life. i may add to this list if i think of more things !!

DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO. 2012-2013. Produced in North and South Kivu. Film stills from The Enclave by Richard Mosse. [6/13]

The Irish photographer filmed strange footage of the country using a special surveillance film once used by the military. Picking up invisible infra-red rays given off by plant life, the film makes any greenery show up in ‘bubblegum’ pink, meaning guerilla soldiers could be spotted among the leaves.

Civil war has been happening in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo for many years. Since 1998, the nation has seen 5.4 million war-related deaths.

You had developed powers when you turned sixteen just as it always has been in your family. You came from a long line of powerful sorceresses with lineage that could be traced back before the Salem Witch Trials. On the eve of your sixteenth birthday you would be taken out into the country where a special flat circular rock was. It was your land near the back of your house.

That rock was where you would stand until you were literally and figuratively hit by lightning. It sucked but your powers were dormant inside and would come to life on that rock by the charge of lightning.

Nobody knew in the pack of the matter until Stiles got worried when you didn’t show up to your surprise party. He got Scott to stick his head out the window while driving in the jeep with the pack, they pulled up watching your mother, sisters and aunts standing by a podium chanting and you on the rock. They saw the lightning strike you before a blinding light flew everywhere.

“What the fuck?!” Stiles exclaimed trying to run over to you.

When the light faded they saw you shaking from what had happened. You were trembling as you being soaked in the new power. You had been told how it would feel but this was something else.

“Y/N?” Stiles asked rushing towards you. He was panicking when he felt himself lock down, unable to move.

“Nice of you to join us but you weren’t invited.” Your mother said stepping away from the podium, “It’s best if you all go home and forget what you saw.”

“This is a form of child abuse. It has to be.” Stiles said glaring.

“This is a family tradition.” You said stepping off the rock, “On the eve of a female from the Y/L/N’s sixteenth birthday their magic powers will be gifted to them.”

“You’re a witch?” Scott asked.

“We prefer sorceresses. Witch leaves a bad taste after the trials.” Your mom said waving it off,


You had finally graduated with your friends when you were eighteen but you were still trying to find control over your powers. You were the only one in your family that hadn’t control this long, and it was embarrassing.

The pack thought you had it under control when in reality you had it so far out of control it was pathetic. That’s why your mom had set up dummies on your land to use to practice but something went wrong causing the dummies to either explode or light on fire along with the grass.

“I’ll never be able to do this!” You sobbed.

“Hey.” The soothing voice of Stiles said as he gripped your shoulders, “What’s wrong?”

“I can’t control my powers!” You exclaimed.

“I thought they were? It’s been two years.” Lydia bluntly said. Stiles glared at her before his attention came back to you.

“Control takes time. You need an anchor. Let me be that anchor, I love you. Always have.” Stiles smiled using his thumb to wipe a tear away, “Besides my best friend tried to kill me before. You not being able to control your powers is nothing.”

“You love me?” You asked feeling a strange feeling spread in your body. Stiles nodded before kissing you.

“See all you needed was belief.” Your mom smiled, “Just practice and keep that boy in mind. Now get off my property! I have a fire to put out.”
