How painful is it to post submissions with misspelled words? i.e. "shepard"
lol I have a love hate relationship with captions. I think you’ll find that I don’t always read them until they’re posted. They can really ruin a picture - like that weird one recently with the puppies rescued from under the church?? The line about the priest totally ruined the picture and took away from the cute pups. If I had read that when I queued it, I probably would have taken it out. But I get way too many submissions, so I just skim them to make sure they don’t say anything about death or abuse or being a wolf.
When it comes to spelling, I do know that English isn’t everyone’s first language, so sometimes poor grammar or spelling can be the result of a language barrier. I don’t really bat an eye at that stuff, more so the “this is my dog, he loves jumping out of moving cars” stuff.
Omg i just finished Heartstrings and it was so good but i just had a question about the soulmates thing?? Natsu said soulmates could be romantic, platonic, etc. but could that change each lifetime? Like this time be romantic and next time be platonic? And are 2 souls ALWAYS going to be soulmates or does it depend on who kills who. So if Lucy killed Gajeel would they be soulmates next? Sorry this is probably way deeper thinking than it needs to be, but im just really curious. Tysm
They can change, which is exactly why Natsu asked Lucy that in the first place. Whereas they’d been romantic as Haru and Elie, there’s the possibility of that not being the case in this life, and Natsu wanted to take that into consideration here. You’re bound, sure, but that doesn’t mean your soul-bonded partner necessarily wants the same things you do. We’re all different and all individual after all, even if you’ve got the same soul. You can change your minds. You can grow and want different things.
In this universe, you won’t always be soul-BOUND, but those who have been bonded before may or may not turn up in future incarnations. Could be as a sibling, maybe a romantic partner, or even a spouse. However, because for this particular life there was no ‘killing,’ there will be no remembering. So that connection felt is more of a remnant, and since you don’t have birthmarks or scars, there’s no way to tell who you’ve been before.
A bond is formed between two individuals who would most benefit from remembering and––depending on the circumstances of their current life––atoning for what they’ve done to have been bound in the first place. You are bound to the person who would most help you to reflect on your past mistakes to help repair that part of your soul that has been hurt by past experiences.
So with Lucy and Gajeel, that wouldn’t happen just because she’d ‘killed’ him (of course this wouldn’t happen anyway because seriously…Lucy killing Gajeel? No. Not in the Heartstrung universe anyway XD). Bonds aren’t formed just because you’ve killed someone.
Bonds are formed with those who force you to learn and who would most benefit you. It can be painful, and sometimes it’s too much for some and they can’t deal with it. Fate can be a bitch, sure, but really? She’s only trying to help.
We’re having our first parent teacher event at our after school center. I haven’t been this nervous in a very long time. I really hope I don’t do anything to mess things up. It doesn’t help when your a socially awkward person and any type of communication you have with people doesn’t usually go well.
“If personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures, then there was something gorgeous about him, some heightened sensitivity of the promises of life, as if he were related to one of those intricate machines that register earthquakes ten thousand miles away… It was an extraordinary gift for hope, a romantic readiness such as I have never found in any other person and which it is not likely I shall ever find again.” - F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby (1925)
hey!! so a lot of you were asking about the day and night universe and how stuff works there and i tried to think of something less half-assed and seriously thought this through. and i would like to warn you if you were expecting some kind of science related explanation or something cries i deeply apologize
