Don’t flatter yourselves guys, my father broke my heart long before you ever had a chance.

Most people will scroll past this without giving it any attention: “Cute. A stay strong-teddybear”. And nobody knows the story behind.
As I wrote earlier today, a friend of mine needs a heart transplantation. She has a very rare sickness and it’s now taken the power over her. She is in an artificial coma at the time. She will get an artificial heart soon, will wake up, and has to wait for a donor heart. Everything else is in the stars, we don’t know anything. We don’t know if she will get a heart and survive or not.
I got this teddybear from her when we were together in mental hospital, where I met her. It was 3am when I got to my hospital room again after my wounds had been stitched in another hospital. I had a really bad time, but when I wanted to go to bed, this teddy sat on my bed with a note, saying:

“This teddy will keep you save tonight. Stay strong. I think of you. J.
P.S: Dry your eyes & start believing”

It made me smile as hell, I cuddled the teddy and fell asleep even if I felt bad about my self harm. But I could fall asleep and get up in the morning.
I keep this teddy with me now, in thought of her. I hope she will get better, I hope she will find a donor and I hope we can laugh together again someday. I miss how red she turns when she laughs. We always called her “tomato” or “ketchup”. No one liked to get up early for the walks at 6:30 in the morning when we were in hospital, but she always laughed and made everyone else smile, too. I was so mad about her sometimes because of some things she had done, but we laughed and cried and have so many memories together. We always sang The Script’s “Breakeven” and everyone thought it was annoying, but the thing is that I’m going to see The Script live in three weeks and I’ll sing along to this song with all my heart just for her.

I’m with her. I hope for the best.
And  guys, please hope for the best, too. Maybe it helps.

Seduce Me: Shall We Dance?

“I Want To Be Worthy Of You.”

Sam and I have been living together for almost 2 years. He’s worked in the Police Force and I couldn’t be happier.

Why did Sam want me to wear this dress, though, and where was he taking me?

Recycled

Look around you
We’ve all been
Reduced
Reused
It’s all part of the cycle
Right?

And let’s assume
Let’s presume
We are the exhumed
The consumed
Not the consumers

They’ll find what’s left
Of our useable parts
Maybe pluck out our hearts
Create a new start.

See, we can be
Recycled, too.

AU where

Hiyori and Yato meet, sort of. Two unfortunate bad days collided, which leaves Hiyori dying and Yato looking for a heart donor. They then start to talk, accidentally falling in love, even though they have a short time to be together. When Yato is suddenly rushed to surgery, Hiyori passes away. When he wakes up, he is told that a heart was donated to him. Curious, he finds out it was the heart of the girl he was falling for. After finding a bucket list Hiyori left behind, Yato goes out to discover more about the girl he barely knew.

Cranquis Mail: I had heart surgery, can I still be an organ donor?

(name withheld) asked:

Hi there, Dr. Canquis! I’m interested in becoming an organ donor, but I am worried that my heart surgery may prevent me from doing so. Do you know if getting a heart defect repaired affects your ability to donate? I’ve tried to do some googling, but there don’t seem to be concrete answers out there.

My dear dear Heartsichord (your Cranquis-Nym), what a great question, and the answer is: YES, you should still be able to be an organ donor!

Worse case scenario, the transplant team might decide not to use your post-operative heart – otherwise, as long as you don’t have any of the Organ Donor No-No’s when you die (HIV; actively spreading brain cancer; active systemic infection at time of death), most of your body should be up for grabs.

Anyways, the final decision of “which donated organs to use or not use” is up to the transplant team. All you have to do to be a potential organ donor is:

  1. Be willing [WHICH YOU ARE, AWESOME!]
  2. Make your decision known! (More details/links on how to go about that in this old Cranquis-Mail)

Thank you SO much for being willing to donate your organs! The need is so great, and so are YOU.

Bride Is Walked Down The Aisle By Man Who Received Her Father’s Donated Heart

A bride whose father was shot and killed in a botched mugging was walked down the aisle by the man whose life was saved by her father’s donated heart.

Jeni Stepien was married 10 years after her father was shot dead by a mugger in September 2006 in Swissvale, Pennsylvania.

Michael Stepien took a shortcut through an alleyway before being robbed at gunpoint by a 16-year-old mugger who shot him in the head at close range.

Leslie L Brown is now serving 40 years to life for the killing, according to the New York Times.

Arthur Thomas, 72, had been within days of dying when he received the donor heart - and kept in touch with the Stepien family after his operation.

Jeni Stepien said, ‘The murder and the wedding happened within a three-block radius. And I was just thinking, ‘My dad is here with us, and this man is here with us because of us.’

Guts.

I registered to be an organ donor today.

My entire life, I have been told to not get that little red heart on my license. I was too pretty to be cut up if I were to die young. No number of lives I could save would be worth a stranger opening me and tearing me apart.

My heart has a murmur and beats too fast and I have a condition that makes my body feel like it’s bleeding out when I stand up. My liver was jaundiced for so long as a kid I can’t drink more than a shot of vodka without the world’s worst hangover the next morning. My eyes can’t make out writing on street signs without my glasses. My lungs have breathed in too much secondhand smoke from grandmothers and lovers alike for them to ever be any good. 

I registered to be an organ donor today.

If someone can take my shitty queer heart that I loved too much with, that would beat too fast when I heard her voice, take it. If someone can take my liver, that saw me through champagne toasts to my coming out and tipsy first kisses fueled by liquid courage, take it. If someone can take my eyes, the blue ones she looked into the first time she told me they loved me, the eyes that could see her in all her beauty in our most intimate moments, take them. If someone needs my lungs, the lungs I have sung with and cried with and laughed with and sighed contentedly as I fell asleep in the arms of someone I loved, someone who loved me, someone queer like me, take them. Take them and let someone else say a thousand I love you’s with the breaths I can no longer take. Take them. Take them. Take them.

Because if someone kills me for who I love, the things I loved with will not die with me.
