do what makes you come alive

Be resilient. Try again. And again. When things don’t go as planned, make a new plan. Know your strengths. Understand your weaknesses. You know what you are and what you aren’t. Use that knowledge to assess your situation. Just try again. When you fall down or come up short, know that isn’t the end of you or your journey. You can do anything. You can get through anything.

Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

What if Sombra doesn’t have any information on McCree, because she’s the one that wiped it?

They’re only seven years apart, and she looks really young when she’s meeting with the Los Muertos gang, so if she runs with them and McCree runs with Deadlock around the same time, maybe they crossed paths at some point in their youth? A deal gone wrong between the two gangs and things go south, but McCree comes across a little girl somewhere in the midst of it and he’s not about to kill a kid, what do you take him for? He makes sure she gets out of harms way until the shooting stops, and he forgets about it, but Sombra doesn’t, because when the world is an eye for an eye and someone goes out their way to keep you alive, you kinda owe them one?

But Deadlock goes down and McCree disappears with Blackwatch, and maybe even she forgets about it for a while with bigger fish to fry and powerful friends to make, until the day comes when Overwatch crumbles and a bounty shows up on her radar on one named Jesse McCree, and she remembers the rival gang member who helped her once.

McCree gets a call, a few weeks after he’s left Overwatch, in a small, run down motel out in the middle of nowhere, with little to no traffic and no reason to be calling. It’s early in the morning, and his sleep addled brain is catching up when he lifts the receiver and mumbles a sleepy “hello?” There’s silence for a moment, until a voice comes on the phone and says two words: Favour repaid.

The line goes dead, and McCree is now confused but wide awake - he tries reverse calling the number but there’s no source to be found. His mind goes to the worst possible scenario that he’s been compromised and he high tails it before the sun has risen and he gets swarmed by bounty hunters or feds or former rival gangs out for revenge.

Except… try to find any information on a man named Jesse McCree, and you won’t find a damn thing. It’s like looking for a ghost. Sure it won’t last, things can never stay off the grid completely, and he’ll surface and it’ll all start all over again but for now, the world forgets about Jesse McCree.

People on fb happy about Michael’s death because “the show was getting boring” like bitch ??? What was boring about it? Seeing a happy, healthy relationship on screen makes it boring? Did you forget about how they were also dealing with Rafael’s drama because that affected them too? Jane’s crazy cousin and new family drama? The entire circumstances of her son’s birth? You know Sin Rostro can come back even if Michael is still alive, right?

Just because a healthy couple is dealing with the craziness of life together, LIKE THEY SHOULD BE DOING, doesn’t mean it’s boring. Relationships don’t need to consist of lying, cheating, and constant drama to be exciting.

What's your predictions for chapter 19? Also do you think sangwoo and bum will finally have sex? I personally think they wil!

Um, sorry if this is a bit messy I’m in lecture right now. But I do have predictions for chapter 19, I already addressed most of my predictions here, basically I think we all know that Jieun will die, either by Sangwoo’s or Bum’s hands, she’s not coming out of that basement. I don’t know if I’ll do a full on analysis, a lot of chapter 19 was just Sangwoo validating some of my past theories on him. If you look in that post I linked you can see my opinions about what I will think is going to happen with Bum near the end. To summarize it, there are too many pros to killing Jieun to cons,.

I’ll make a short list:

1. Bum probably knows that Jieun isn’t coming out of that basement alive, she’s going to die either way. Sangwoo will not let her escape, to tells others about the creep fest Sangwoo is putting her through. The only person Sangwoo has allowed to have a glance into his darker side is Bum, everyone else that sees it has died. He (Bum) knows that even if he chooses not to kill her, she’s going to die anyway.

2. If he rejects killing Jieun he’ll have to pay for it, I think after spending so much time with Sangwoo he’s able to grasp this. Sangwoo will see it as a rejection of him and it’ll probably really upset him, he even stated to Bum at the end, “This is the most dangerous. I spent time picking the victims.” He specially picked out victims for Bum as a gift and if Bum rejects killing her he’ll not only be rejecting Sangwoo but he’ll be ruining the moment and all the “work” Sangwoo put into making this situation happen. Bum’ll probably know how scary life will be afterwards if he doesn’t kill her.

3. He’ll be “together forever” with Sangwoo if he accepts Sangwoo’s gift to him. Bum has been obsessed with Sangwoo probably anywhere from a few months to a year. Based upon reading some KS fan’s (who actually have BPD like Bum) theories and ideas, they describe someone they kind of obsess over and have deep affection for as their “favorite person.” I personally do not have BPD but according to them, your FP not giving you attention any more or being mad at you is a very scary and depressing thing, which can make you worry to the point of becoming physically sick over. Their FP is someone very desirable to them, very tempting. I believe this is what Sangwoo is to Bum, he’s is Bum’s FP. This is something that might make him more inclined to kill Jieun. Killing Jieun would be Bum giving into his more carnal BPD desires (choosing to be with Sangwoo “forever”) by embracing the wants it’s making him have (wanting to be with Sangwoo “forever.”

Extra note: Sangwoo has already been showing Bum how much he want’s them to be together, through easing Bum’s worries. @getmetherapyplease has a really good post on this. I think Sangwoo “easing” Bum’s worries might also make him more inclined to listen to Sangwoo’s pleas and Kill Jieun.

But that being said:

1. Bum, I believe, is a sympathetic person. I think on a human level he will be able to understand Jieun’s character: they both love Sangwoo, they both want to be special to Sangwoo, the both are victims of Sangwoo, Bum can probably understand the hurt/confusion Jieun feels at seeing Sangwoo’s “dark side,” and even though she was rude to him a bit he can probably understand why (he’s been jealous even recently). So all these things added up might make him feel more sympathetic and he might feel like he can’t bring himself to do it.Then he might act on that feeling.

2. Bum is a strong cookie, this situation kind of mirrors the situation in chapters 7-8, when he tried to escape out the door while Sangwoo “left.” In both, Bum is having to choose between “staying with Sangwoo forever” or leaving him and getting back to having a normal life in the outside world. If he kills Jieun he’ll be choosing “stay with Sangwoo forever” rather and will be rejecting going back to a “normal” life. Killing Jieun is something he won’t be able to take back and he knows this, to choose Sangwoo and kill her, even though it’s not something I think he wants to be or would be doing outside this situation, is still killing her. He’ll still have to carry that burden, even if he couldn’t help but choose it because of his situation. During the first struggle (chapters 7-8), we saw have an internal struggle with himself (and probably his disorder) through a Sangwoo apparition/hallucination. Even though I think his BPD was inciting him to stay with Sangwoo (his FP), he overcame it because he knew it wasn’t healthy to stay. Do you know how amazing Bum is for that? He overcame his disorder in that moment, what’s not to say he can’t do that in this situation?

My main concern however is that after Bum tried to escape in 7-8, we saw how badly Sangwoo reacted, Bum knows explicitly knows how Sangwoo reacted, I don’t think he’d forget.

Plus the “escape while Sangwoo’s gone” situation in 7-8 is something I don’t think Sangwoo put a lot of effort into, he basically just said, “I’m leaving, don’t leave the house.” It was something he kind of did on a whim to test waters with Bum, there weren’t any negative consequences for him even if Bum tried to escape. However, the situation now is, “I planned this, I took time to pick the victims for you. I picked a dangerous victim that could risk me getting caught. I’m personally invested in this. I don’t want to be alone anymore, I want to be with you forever.” It’s a LOT more personal to Sangwoo, it’s something I don’t think he’d get over easily. I feel like the punishment he would inflict on Bum for rejecting him would be a LOT worse than the “airplane” treatment, I feel like he’d be more inclined to kill Bum for it.

As far as them having sex goes, I think it’s very much possible. Sangwoo made his thoughts pretty clear in chapter 18, he wants to be with Bum forever. Wanting “to be together until death” is basically a marriage propasal to Bum. It would not be surprising if after becoming “married” Bum and Sangwoo go one more step and make it more real, as if to “consummate” things. To make things really real. Koogi has really been building up the story to this point and I think she could throw a little smut in there to spice it up.

I don’t think it’d be the healthiest thing for Bum nor do I thing killing JIeun would be but both are very very much possible. Alternatively, Bum may try and get Sangwoo to help him kill Jieun not so much as a “he’s forcing me to do this” but a “I can’t do this without you Sangwoo.” That’s the only way Sangwoo would happily help him with it, without there being consequences for Bum.

Describe your ideal date with the ideal person.

so, we ditch all tradition and meet bright and early in the morning rather than at night. we head to a local café where the walls are white and there are splashes of green in the corners that make the place really come alive. we get coffee and some variation of eggs. there is no small talk. i don’t ask about their job or what their hometown is like. instead i ask them to tell me all their secrets, a tactic that has proven effective for me many times. we both laugh a little because it sounds like a joke, but slowly we ease into it: the backstory. what’s the worst hurt you knew as a child? in what ways did your parents fail you? how do you practice sadness? we trade these details in broad daylight and we are not ashamed. we are grown now and we understand ourselves and we are mostly at peace. we take a walk wherever the trees are closest together, more coffee in hand. somewhere there’s a fallen log and we sit on it and are a little nervous. we struggle to maintain eye contact, but we get there. at some point we hold hands, which is still the biggest thrill for me, even at twenty-five. later we get cake and elderflower juice. maybe someone reads a poem. when we part ways, my heart is a child’s heart. i’m so excited and scared and slightly vulnerable and i can’t wait to meet up again. next time - pizza.

Yo Yo Yo!

Are you a witch/wizard/magic practitioner? Do YOU have a terrifying furby that haunts your dreams? Do you want a protective spell? Of course you do! 

I present: the furby protection spell!

What you need:

A furby (preferably with no batteries so it won’t come alive and eat you)

A rock/crystal, really anything (you kinda connect the furby and the rock, so that there’s an anchor for the energy, if that makes sense? Anyway, you could use basically anything, but I used a piece of brick)

Tarot deck (you could use sigils if you want, it just needs to represent the people you want protected)

Lavender

Some music that you associate with protection, and offense (I used the Mirai Nikki op and Shonen Knife music, cause that’s the music I happen to associate with these two things, but whatever works for you)

A sigil for protection

How to:

Get your stuff together

Go sit somewhere dark (like in your room at night, with low lighting)

Take your tarot deck, and pick out the cards that represent the people you want to fall under that protective spell, and set them aside.

Get your sigil, and put it under the furby

Put the rock/crystal/anything in front of the furby

Put the lavender around the furby 

Stick the tarot cards in a circle around the furby

(Visual aid)

Put on the music for offense and visualize a barrier with the same energy. Make sure to be specific when making these barriers! Then do the same for protection. (You can do it in any order you think works best)

Take the sigil out from under the furby, and activate it

Take the rock/crystal/anything, and put it somewhere safe (the furby and the rock share the energy, if that makes sense? They work together)

Put the furby some where were it can watch you with its terrifying eyes. Its purpose is as a guardian, so put it in the living room or something like that

And you’re done! You might want to reinforce the shields every so often, to do that, just repeat the previous steps!

Happy 2017!

Quick list of things to remember during the coming year:

-be kind to yourself
-be kind to others
-feminism is important
-standing up for yourself is important
-bullying is not good
-freedom is important

-everyone is valid
-stereotypes are also not good

-relaxation can do a body good
-a little laughter is important also
-stay healthy
-stay fit
-stay alive
-and above all, what is life without love? (now remember this could be a love of food, a person’s love, anything. passion is what makes the world go round. may you find your passion in 2017).

Modern Worshippers: Hel [Requested by Anon]

Quietly watching with bones around their neck, in their ears, on their clothes that softly clink. They’re surprisingly wonderful hosts, having a quick recipe or two on hand to whip up should someone come over. They go to funerals of people who had no one left, leaving white roses to bloom. Never making a fuss, screaming or wailing. They know the end comes no matter what you do and the finality is a soothing comfort, sharpening the importance of every action while they are alive.

Because She will always get what is Her due.

U know what’s got me fucked up? In Helpless Alex says “As long as I’m alive, Eliza, I swear to God you’ll never feel so helpless”.

1. this is straight-up bullshit coming from Alexander “I make grandiose promises I can’t keep” Hamilton.
1.a. he is still alive when he decides to have an affair with Maria and publish the Reynolds Pamphlet AND not tell his pregnant wife i.e. leave her helpless because there is nothing she can do about it.
1.b. Alexander Hamilton is Horrible and I hate him.

2. When he dies, he leaves Eliza with:
A. Seven children who are now fatherless.
B. A shitton of debt that almost made them lose their home
C. Regret because he doesn’t even tell Eliza that he’s dueling Burr until AFTER HE’S FUCKING SHOT WHAT A FUCKING ASSHOLE
2.a. AKA he dies and basically strands Eliza to clean up his mess. She’s helpless as soon as his fucking heart stops beating.

Conclusion: Alexander Hamilton is a lying cheating ass and never deserved Eliza “too pure, too good for this world” Schuyler.

How I imagine couple's reunions go after Harry does something particularly Gryffindor
  • Draco: HARRY JAMES POTTER! WHAT WERE YOU THINKING???!! YOU COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED!! I'M NOT SURE IF I SHOULD BE RELIEVED YOU'RE ALIVE OR UPSET THAT MY BOYFRIEND IS SUCH A COMPLETE AND UTTER MORON!!!!
  • Harry: But [insert bad thing that was none of Harry's problem] was about to happen! It was the right thing to do!
  • Draco: You mean it was the stupid thing to do!! Now come; we're going home and having tea and I'm going to check every inch of you to make sure you're okay and then you are grounded!
  • Harry: But....
  • Draco: GROUNDED!

So what is the answer? How can you stand your ground when you are weak and sensitive to pain, when people you love are still alive, when you are unprepared? What do you need to make you stronger than the interrogator and the whole trap?


From the moment you go to prison you must put your cozy past firmly behind you. At the very threshold, you must say to yourself: “My life is over, a little early to be sure, but there’s nothing to be done about it. I shall never return to freedom. I am condemned to die —now or a little later. But later on, in truth, it will be even harder, and so the sooner the better. I no longer have any property whatsoever. For me those I love have died, and for them I have died. From today on, my body is useless and alien to me. Only my spirit and my conscience remain precious and important to me.


Only the man who has renounced everything can win that victory.


But how can one turn one’s body to stone? Well, they managed to turn some individuals from the Berdyayev circle into puppets for a trial, but they didn’t succeed with Berdyayev. They wanted to drag him into an open trial; they arrested him twice; and (in 1922) he was subjected to a night interrogation by Dzerzhinsky himself. Kamenev was there too (which means that he, too, was not averse to using the Cheka in an ideological conflict). But Berdyayev did not humiliate himself.He did not beg or plead. He set forth firmly those religious and moral principles which had led him to refuse to accept the political authority established in Russia. And not only did they come to the conclusion that he would be useless for a trial, but they liberated him. A human being has a point of view!


 

N. Stolyarova recalls an old woman who was her neighbor on the Butyrki bunks in 1937. They kept on interrogating her every night. Two years earlier, a former Metropolitan of the Orthodox Church, who had escaped from exile, had spent a night at her home on his way through Moscow. "But he wasn’t the former Metropolitan, he was the Metropolitan! Truly, I was worthy of receiving him.” “All right then. To whom did he go when he left Moscow?” “I know, but I won’t tell you!” (The Metropolitan had escaped to Finland via an underground railroad of believers.)


At first the interrogators took turns, and then they went after her in groups. They shook their fists in the little old woman’s face, and she replied: “There is nothing you can do with me even if you cut me into pieces. After all,you are afraid of your bosses, and you are afraid of each other, and you are even afraid of killing me.” (They would lose contact with the underground railroad.) “But I am not afraid of anything. I would be glad to be judged by God right this minute.”


There were such people in 1937 too, people who did not return to their cell for their  bundles of belongings, who chose death, who signed nothing denouncing anyone.


One can’t say that the history of the Russian revolutionaries has given us any better examples of steadfastness.“
