Lysa and Hoster + shame


Hoster Tully & Lysa Tully, shame

She will never know, he tries convincing himself. Lysa will never know the truth. Miscarriages are not uncommon after all. His beloved Minisa suffered miscarriages of her own, and there was nothing induced or unnatural about any of them.

“It’s a tonic,” he tells her, eyes not quite meeting her gaze, “for your health.”

She takes it, takes it and drinks it, because despite her one colossal act of defiance (which to Lysa was never about defying her father anyway but was about love, loving and being loved), deep down she is still a good girl, the girl who wants to please her father, who does not want to disappoint him even more, who looks at him with trusting eyes still, the girl who is surprised, gratified and grateful that her father still cares about her health, about her.

The girl who would never suspect that her father -

“Thank you, Father,” she says, eyes brimming with tears, but her father does not see, turning away too quickly.

How could you? The accusing voice is not Lysa’s, but Minisa’s. Our daughter. She is our daughter.

I have no choice! Jon Arryn would take a soiled girl as the price for my army, but that proud, proud man would never have agreed to raise somebody else’s bastard. what would happen to Lysa then? What kind of life would she have then? Marriage to one of my household knights would be the best she could hope for. Shamed! She would be shamed. This is the only way. The only way to save her from everlasting shame.

Is it truly her shame that concerns you, Father, or your own? It is Cat’s voice accusing him this time, Cat who knows nothing of this, Cat who will never know what her father did, he vows.

Her shame is my shame. And Tully’s shame. Those things are inseparable, just like family, duty and honor are inseparable.

I will never forgive you, Father. It is finally Lysa’s voice, accusing him. I will go to my grave not forgiving you.

You will go to your grave as the honored Lady Arryn, with no one else knowing your darkest secret and your greatest shame.

It is not my greatest shame, it is yours. You will go to your grave regretting the day your murdered your daughter in all the ways that really matter.  

anonymous asked:

I thought I've made peace with my loneliness, yet my heart denies its solitude by yearning for its elusive half. It's exhausting when you move through the days powered by defiance, but chained by bitterness from the happiness that is sought. Perhaps the light blesses you more than it does me this day?

I feel this very deeply and I just want you to know that you’re not alone in this feeling. I hope the ache lessens for you.

Sūrah Al Baqarah {2:130}

Allāh refuted the disbelievers innovations of associating others with Allāh in defiance of the religion of Ibrāhīm, the leader of the upright. Ibrāhīm always singled out Allāh in worship with sincerity, and he did not call upon others besides Allāh. He did not commit shirk even for an instant. He disowned every other deity that was being worshipped instead of Allāh and defied all his people in this regard.

وَمَن يَرْغَبُ عَن مِّلَّةِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ

{And who turns away from the religion of Ibrāhīm}

meaning, abandons his path, way and method

إِلَّا مَن سَفِهَ نَفْسَهُ 

{except him who fools himself}

meaning, who commits injustice against himself by deviating from the truth, to wickedness. Such a person will be defying the path of he who was chosen in this life to be a true Imām, from the time he was young, until Allāh chose him to be his Khalīl, and who shall be among the successful in the Last Life.

Is there anything more insane than deviating from this path and following the path of misguidance and deviation instead? Is there more injustice than this?

~Tafsīr Ibn Kathīr (English- Abridged) Vol.1 pp.402-403

so like Dakari’s  a veteran??

  • like there’s no defiance of him ever being reported out of war, but it was small one and they won  it. he never likes to go into many details about war it’s just not his thing 
  • also during his time hiding from the Ghouls and spending alot of time With Seth. He learned about a lot of thing specifically about human culture and all that biswiz which is why he can speak english and talk regularly without using latin. Because he learned or regurgitated it from Seth who he inhabited a long time back 
  • He’ll never admit it but Squadron red was his best teams out of the four that he trained 
  • he’s not fond of the Royal institute, and hates their ethics, even thought he’s apart of it himself but it was through the consent of his mother not him. They wanted him to be in the program that they built to sustain order between the three Higher courts essentially to bring more peace and educate the young and that’s actually where he went to learn when was young. 
[Ch. 219 Spoiler] Furudate is... pretty strategic?

This might not be a thing at all but something that I just noticed now. 

In contrast to Miya’s sly comments about Kageyama’s role as a setter (god damn I love him but this Kansai boy is sneaky)

Kageyama’s shirt reads “セッター道” which translates generally to ‘Path of the Setter’ or ‘Way of the Setter’ 

You can judge that however you want, whether it’s just a coincidence/random addition to the typical ‘Setter Soul’ shirt or if it really is to prove his symbolic defiance. 

Personally? I’d like to consider it as a bonus representation of how determined and dedicated Kageyama is to being a setter.

I’m actualy happy

Every time I meet up with people I used to love but have eventually fallen out with, I come to some great, and eventually pleasing realizations about myself. These stem partially from defiance, to prove them wrong, but apart from that I hold no grudges against them, even though they no longer, neccessarily, know me. 

I don’t have to be able to do things for myself to be content in my life. As I’ve said in a previous post I do things, art, much better when it’s for someone else. I’m that kind of person. I’m that kind of person whose best statement ever is “I’m fine with myself.” I’m the most grateful for those posts going around that say “It’s bullshit that you can’t love others without loving yourself first.” I can and I will. Also I don’t need to do grandiose stuff, travel the world, change my environment to feel fulfilled, to go out every weekend just to have some grand story to tell after I haven’t seen you in 3 years. It’s not sad when all I can tell you about is my sister and the little academic career I just started to build. 

I love my boyfriend, I adore my sister, so you can bet I’ll still be gushing months later abour her wedding and how beautiful she was. I have a stable faith, and careing family. I’m slowly working on my career, so yeah, the biggest thing that’s happened to me this year are the two conference presentations I did, shortly during and after I was done with my exams, and I did them not even in my mother tongue, and the greatest compliment was the question of “how much time I’ve spent in the UK” because of the accent I still hate but managed to work out for myself without ever having been anywhere but a few days at Glasgow. It’s not disastrous that I don’t know yet where I want to do my phd. Thinking about going abroad is big enough for me. I need to get used to the idea. My art is getting better. I have made some of the best friends imaginable here through that, through the true enthusiasm and excitement and wonder at how talented and amazing they all are.

And so, even though I’ve had some really stressful days, weeks, summer even, knowing this, having realized this, I can finally say the previously unimaginable: I’m happy. I’m happy in and with my life, with my family, with my friends. 

It’s an uplifting and delightfully defiant realization.

Age: 16
Species: Human
Place of Origin: Long Gone Gulch
Job: Sheriff
Interests: History, Collecting, Howling, Sarsaparilla, Sweets.
Dislikes: Varmints, Villains, Liars, No good yellow bellies.

Long Gone Gulch is home to many strange creatures whom have settled down and even started families.  Rawhide, was (and still is) the first human to be born and raised in the Gulch.  Her father, was a beloved Sheriff of the town.  When Rawhide was young, her father was mysteriously killed, and his deputy disappeared.  Since then she was raised by her uncle, the Mayor, who is a jackalope (don’t ask).  Rawhide’s positive outlook on life she inherited from her dad, but all of her weird tendencies she developed from being raised by a jackalope, and not having any human guidance.  Table manners, social skills, and indoor voices are something Rawhide has a tough time with.  But her strongest trait is her defiance, she’ll never give up and never stop trying to be better.  Dealing with grief at such a young age only made her tougher.

The town went through many non-human Sheriff’s who’s bad judgment led to the once great town becoming…well, not so great.  Crime was at a high and resources were low.  By day, Rawhide would spend her time talking to all of the residents of the town and documenting everything that went on.  She would collect artifacts and arranged them in her room like a museum. She would even give tours.  But by night, Rawhide would act as a vigilante trying to right the wrongs of the current Sheriff’s incompetence.  Rawhide’s dad was beloved by all the residents, but they have often said that Rawhide will never live up to his greatness. 

One day a stranger was brought to the town. And at the right time.  The town was overrun with bandits who had taken over the Sheriff’s station and ran him out. Rawhide had escaped their clutches only to run into Snag.  Rawhide had thought he was some kind of creature because of his pointy hair and convinced him to help her.  Their differences perfectly meshed together and they were able to take the town back from the bandits. Snag’s grounded personality helps keep Rawhide’s way out ideas tangible.  Being a child of the Gulch, Rawhide  has no perception of the real world or how normal humans act.  She sees something of her father in Snag, and thinks having that human element around could help her become a great sheriff. The Mayor was impressed, mostly at how great Rawhide’s team work was with a total stranger.  He honored them with the Long Gone Gulch sheriff badges.  Rawhide moved out of her little shack and straight into the sheriff station! The rest is history.

Ishida is beautiful and pure. Kubo internally knows what a shit ending he gave his fandom, and he subconsciously separated Ishida from the mess and the shells of people that his friends became.

Ishida was literally untouched by Kubo’s fuckery.

Ishida is literally saying “fuck you” to Bleach by not facing the readers in the color spread. He has his head turned away from Bleach in defiance.

Ishida will have none of this shit.

That’s my canon. Ishida is the canon. Ishida was the shinning light of this chapter and no one can convince me otherwise.

marinette dupain-cheng does a lot of stuttering and fingernail biting and all-around flailing, and also a lot of smirking, and lowkey taunting, and cute little giggles when she’s amused. and let’s not even when it comes to her rage and you can see the tension in her eyebrows and the redness of her fury, her posture held firm when she stands with her hands on her hips or crosses her arms in defiance and determination and stubborness against an opponent.

this has been an appreciation post about how expressive marinette dupain-cheng is
