someone who was salty about that end writes some cute shit to make themself feel better before realising that there’s a good reason “it’s complicated”

Jellals face when Queen Hisui pardoned Crime Sorciere was something I could never forget.

I saw him from the crowd, I saw his eyes light up and a small smile creep onto his face.

He stood up from kneeling with the rest of his little guild and they bowed and went on their way back into the crowd.

Jellal came to stand next to me and I grabbed his hand and held him close to by body leaning against his shoulder as the coronation court came to a close.

A ball came after all the kingdom celebrated, there were lanterns in the streets and people dancing around in the courtyards and town squares all over the land.

All of the guilds that helped in the war with Alvarez were invited to the actual court and ball with her majesty herself.

“M’lady Erza” Ichiya said bowing behind me as I turned around. “May I have this dance?” I shot a glance at Jellal.

“Save a dance for me, now go enjoy yourself.” he said and I shot him a glance I hoped portrayed ‘please help me this guy is a creep’ but he walked away…

“Of co-” I started but I got interrupted by Lucy and Natsu falling into my back. I climbed out of the pile and walked out one of the doors onto a balcony hoping Ichiya won’t follow.

The sun was setting covering the sky in a blanket of soft red and orange hues leading into a deep blue colour.

“Pretty isn’t it?” a voice said from the doorway walking out and wrapping his arms around my waist.
I leaned back into Jellals chest and rested my head on his shoulder.

“You know I’m waiting for you to do something.” I said turning around and resting my hands on his chest looking into his eyes.


“You’re so oblivious.” I said holding his face and pulling him forward to kiss me.

Our lips moved in time I wrapped my arms around his neck and sighed into the kiss.

We stayed like that, our lips moving together in sync our bodies pressed together close.

“Erza? Jellal?” Lucys voice broke the silence and we broke apart.

“Yes?” I said smiling and grabbing Jellals arm to pull him close.

“Damn, you two took your time, use protection.” she said making Jellal blush and me smile at her and wink.

And she walked back into the ball probably to stop the inevitable argument between Gray and Natsu.

“So then?” Jellal asked looking back at the sky that was now a deep blue colour, speckled in yellow light from the lanterns all over Fiore.

“I’m very sick of waiting for you to ask me out.” I said resting my arms on the railing for that balcony.

“You not that good at being subtle are you?” Jellal chuckled pulling me back into a kiss.

“Not really.”

“Will you be my girlfriend?” he asked between little kisses on my face.

“Duh.” I said pulling him closer. He petted my hair gentely as we stood close.

“I love your hair.” I said kissing the top of my head.

“I love you.”

“The music is loud, may I have this dance?” he asked and I laughed moving into position and we danced together.

No one else asked me to dance for the rest of the night.

satly ass Jerza shipper writes cute bullshit :DDDD

Like I know Neil loves exy more than life itself and almost more than Andrew but I can’t help but think he gets caught up in the stick ball jokes simply because it makes Kevin shit himself. So imagine Neil getting drafted onto his pro-team and saying: “I’m just so thankful for this opportunity. I used to think I wouldn’t make it this far but Stick Ball has given me a reason to live.” And Kevin, who’s in the audience, legit lets out a horrified yelp and the camera pans to him and he’s sobbing.

Archaeologists discover Aztec ball court in heart of Mexico City

The remains of a major Aztec temple and a ceremonial ball court have been discovered in downtown Mexico City, shedding new light on the sacred spaces of the metropolis that Spanish conquerors overran five centuries ago, archaeologists said on Wednesday.

The discoveries were made on a nondescript side street just behind the city’s colonial-era Roman Catholic cathedral off the main Zocalo plaza on the grounds of a 1950s-era hotel.

The underground excavations reveal a section of what was the foundation of a massive, circular-shaped temple dedicated to the Aztec wind god Ehecatl and a smaller part of a ritual ball court, confirming accounts of the first Spanish chroniclers to visit the Aztec imperial capital, Tenochtitlan.

Mexico revives 3,000-year-old ancient ball game - BBC News
A championship is being played in Mexico to try to revive a 3,000-year-old ball game.


The finals of a revived 3,000-year-old ball game have been played in the Mexican city of Teotihuacan

Organisers have been trying to bring back the game, known as Ullamaliztli in Mexico, because of its ancient cultural and religious significance.

The game was played across Central America before being banned by the Spanish conquistadors.

The tournament, only the second since 2006, is being played by ten teams from across Mexico.

According to ancient texts the ball game was seen as a struggle between light and darkness and provided the energy to keep humanity going.

One of the best preserved ball courts can be found - with stone rings to throw the ball through - in Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula

Today the game is played by teams of seven players, who knock a heavy solid rubber ball up and down a narrow pitch, using their hips rather than their feet.

Giant ball courts can still be seen in ruins across the region.

In ancient times losers of the game were often sacrificed to the Gods*, but this year organisers opted for a knockout tournament instead.

* There is iconography and mythology related to the ballgame that involve sacrifice, but there is little evidence that people were sacrificed for having played this game.


litladiesnetwork’s second event: favorite minor female character ― viviane, high lady of the winter court ♡

Viviane, meet Feyre. Feyre meet Viviane - Kallias’s wife.” I glanced at Thesan and Kallias, the latter of whom watched his wife and Mor with raised brows. “I tried to suggest she stay at home.” Kallias said drily, “but she threatened to freeze my balls off.” Rhys let out a dark chuckle. “Sounds familiar.”

It was 5:46 and you just arrived at school. Your mom works early and you don’t drive, so you have to leave early too. Every morning you hear the dribble of a basketball in the gym. You usually just play your music and leave it be, but today, you were intrigued. Who was playing basketball at 6:00 in the morning?

You peeked through the door space. You couldn’t see much of the figure, other than sporatic flashes of the baby blue jersey. You crept into the gym, revealing the school basketball star Zach Dempsey. You closed the door behind you as quietly as possible. You stood by the bleachers, watching him dribble the ball. He jumped up and aimed the ball at the basket. He missed the basket entirely.

“Dammit!” He swore. He chased the ball to the gym wall. With the ball between him and the wall, he rested his head against it. He fist pounded against the mats.

He turned around and dribbled the ball across the court. He jumped up, threw the ball and it hit the backboard. Luckily, it bounced into the basket. You smiled to yourself and physically celebrated the shot. You were sure not to make a noise.

He continued playing, making all his shots. He jumped onto the basket, making a slam dunk. He let out a hearty laugh. You clapped you hands, which gained his attention.

You paused. “I hope you don’t mind,” you started. “I heard the dribbling. I just wanted to see who was up.”

He walked to the edge of the court with the ball against his side. Panting, he asked, “How long were you standing there?”

He wasn’t upset that you were there, not even bothered.

“Well,” you checked your phone for the time: 6:13. “Almost half an hour.”

He smiled. “Did you see me missing all my shots?”

You stepped out from beside the bleachers. “I saw one. Then you got back up and made the shots after.”

He walked over to the bleachers, sitting beside where you stood. He tapped the spot beside him, beckoning you to sit. You did so and he wiped his sweat from his forehead on the collar of his jersey.

“Y'know, before you got here,” he panted. “I couldn’t make any shots. Maybe one out of, lemme see, fifteen. Then the moment I was about to shower and give up, I felt completely at ease. Like, an extra rush of adrenaline.”

You nodded, not really looking at him. You always found him attractive. He was a sweet guy– dumb, but sweet.

“It’s like you’re my lucky charm,” Zach smiled.


“i want them to hear your story. and know that there is a special strength…” as i spoke i realized i needed to hear it, know it, too. “a special strength in enduring such dark trials and hardships… and still remaining warm, and kind. still willing to trust–and reach out.”


Aced it! 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

Swift, who has said she’s not touring in 2017, performed “Better Man” during a special performance in Houston as part of the pre-Superbowl festivities, but Sweet said the band is ready if the pop star ever wants to perform the song with them.

“I mean, come on, Taylor,” Sweet said. “We would love to do it. If she’s up for it, we’re up for it.”

Okay but consider this: lil bby Tobio always getting ignored during play time, whether it was during recess or at the park. 

He never got picked for teams, wasn’t approached during tag, the ball not passed to him in soccer, and not even looked for during hide and seek. 

That’s why he wanted to become a setter: his team had to give him the ball if he was in that position, and then he could finally play with them and befriend them like he’s been wanting to. 

What he didn’t realize was that being able to play with them didn’t mean they liked him. 

What he didn’t realize was that even if he got sent the ball 

they could still reject him
