eight years of

Ready are you? What know you of ready? For eight hundred years have I trained Jedi. My own counsel will I keep on who is to be trained. A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind. This one a long time have I watched. All his life has he looked away… to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was. Hmm? What he was doing. Hmph! Adventure. Heh! Excitement. Heh! A Jedi craves not these things. You are reckless!

dan blushes when phil makes a good joke this isn’t unrealistic

Hunk: Okay, so if we’re gonna play “happy families” would should really get our background straight.

Lance: Let’s keep it simple, use our own backstory. Our wedding day is the day we met, which means we’ve been married for…

Lance: Eight years.

Hunk: Ten years.

Hunk: …You don’t remember when we met.

Lance: No, of course I do, I was just rounding off.

Hunk: By subtracting two years?

i want Vrains to be .Hack with card games

really Extra people hack their player character to have crazy skins, including like, running around as cat people or dragons or some shit

the rival plays as a male avatar but then the plot twist is that irl the rival is a girl

little eight year olds playing with voice modulators to seem older than they actually are

Yusuaku and his rival are bitter enemies online but don’t know each other’s real names so when they run into each other irl they actually end up becoming friends

I KNOW IT’S BEEN AWHILE ... BUT I HAVE NEWS

Hi Y’all,

I know it’s been a really long time, and for that I apologize, but let me tell you: 2017 has been a wild fucking ride and February isn’t even over yet.

January was a rough month emotionally for various reasons, but February has actually been really ok–a HUGE step up from where I was in January. 

BUT! About a week ago, I got some news. It’s been my dream to work for Penguin Random House since I was 16 after reading Sarah Dessen’s THE TRUTH ABOUT FOREVER. SIXTEEN. I am now 23 (24 in 3 months, THREE). That is literally almost EIGHT years of figuring out my life to try and achieve that.

And now, as of February 27th (my very first day), I will be working at Penguin Random House in Random House Children’s Books.

!!!!!!!!

THIS IS REAL LIFE, KIDS. //REAL LIFE// (although I’m not 100% convinced but I have been told it is so I’m going with it)

SQUEE!!!!

San Myshuno, November 2016

Ivory Malcolm sits her daughter Nicole down on the sofa of their tiny apartment in the Spice District of San Myshuno. Nicole had taken the train all by herself to Ivory’s workplace in uptown San Myshuno. In doing so, Nicole had revealed Ivory’s secret…Nicole’s father was Ivory’s boss, Nico Holmes, a man she’d had an affair with over eight years ago in college, a man Ivory was still hopelessly in love with.

Ivory: Nicole, what possessed you to take the train all the way to my job? All by yourself!

Nicole sadly: I was worried when you told me you were emotional this morning, Mommy. My best friend Billie told me it’s not good when grownups are emotional. 

Ivory sternly: You did a very bad thing, Nic. I’m so upset with you. Go to your room. You know you’re not supposed to go anywhere alone without my permission or your grandmother’s permission!

Nicole nods and tearfully goes to the bedroom she shared with her grandmother.

Whitney: So. What happened? Why are you so furious with Nicole?

Ivory: Let’s talk on the balcony, Mom. Something terrible has happened.

Ivory explains how Nico Holmes has discovered her secret…that Nicole was his child, a child she never told him about.

Whitney: I told you to tell him about Nic years ago when you discovered you were pregnant! So, is he going to take responsibility for Nicole?

Ivory: No, he isn’t. We agreed to keep it a secret. He’s happily married, Mom. And he’s my boss. I’m not trying to ruin his marriage, and I don’t want to lose my job! His wife can’t have children, she’s in cancer remission. Finding out about Nicole would ruin them.

Whitney exasperated: Ivory! Are you kidding me?! You’re lashing out at Nicole for YOUR mistake! And now you’re telling me you’re not going to have Nico take responsibility for her? It’s not Nicole’s fault her father’s wife can’t have kids! This is ridiculous!

Ivory angrily: MOM. I’m not changing my mind about this. Nico doesn’t want to acknowledge Nicole. I can’t force him. And I won’t.

Some speculation I've heard said that the Amonkhet gods could be wedge colored

Wedge seems really unlikely, for two reasons.

  • We had a wedge block two-ish years ago in Khans of Tarkir and to a lesser extend Fate Reforged.
  • Unless Nicol Bolas changes his colors (possible, but unlikely), he’s shard-colored, not wedge. That means color fixing is more of a challenge if a set has both.

By contrast, it’s been eight-ish years since we had a shard block, which is why, combined with Bolas, that’s the prevailing theory outside of mono-color.

Enemy pairs are hard, too, because they were done in both Dragons of Tarkir, but also because it’s again harder to get the Shard Gods out if all the mana fixing is designed for enemy colors. Or at least I assume. I’m not the best player, lol.

My personal hope is that we see shard versions of the Khans from Fate Reforged, where the cards themselves are a single color, but they have abilities in the other colors.

“I have never seen someone with so much fire,
She never seems give in, never seems to tire,
With so much strength and passion, she’ll always fight,
Even during the darkest, and coldest night,
I only wish that she would share that flame with me, 
So perhaps I may glow as bright as she.” - Tsirae, Age 8

During a meeting with an old childhood friend of his, Rheyla learned that a decade prior he had written a poem about her, which she then demanded he tell her.  Being that Tsirae often recorded his thoughts, the poem still existed.

The poem is cheesy but he was eight years old, so I had to make it cheesy……… (I also suck at poetry)

Pardon me for asking but what is the foxhole court?

its a book trilogy by nora sakavic! i have no idea how to explain it but this is the goodreads summary for the first book. 

Neil Josten is the newest addition to the Palmetto State University Exy team. He’s short, he’s fast, he’s got a ton of potential—and he’s the runaway son of the murderous crime lord known as The Butcher.

Signing a contract with the PSU Foxes is the last thing a guy like Neil should do. The team is high profile and he doesn’t need sports crews broadcasting pictures of his face around the nation. His lies will hold up only so long under this kind of scrutiny and the truth will get him killed.

But Neil’s not the only one with secrets on the team. One of Neil’s new teammates is a friend from his old life, and Neil can’t walk away from him a second time. Neil has survived the last eight years by running. Maybe he’s finally found someone and something worth fighting for

it’s really good, and really emotional. theres a bunch of triggering stuff in it, but if you dont have any, its worth checking out. its definitely not a light read. 

Oh my goodness, I just realized something???

Dick Grayson is a safety net for everyone else in DC.

Allow me to explain:  

So everyone knows how Dick’s parents died: Tony Zucco was a rude jerkface who sabotaged the wires for the Flying Graysons’ trapeze act, the ropes snapped, they fell to their deaths right in front of poor baby Dick’s teeny little eight year-old eyes, we all know the story. But the thing about this situation is that most acrobats would use a safety net in case they fell. The Flying Graysons, however, chose to do that particular act without a net in order to create more excitement. So they died because there was no one to catch them. Dick’s family died because they had no safety net

Cut to a little over a decade later, and Dick is Nightwing. He’s been with Batman, he’s been a member of several teams, and he’s met so many other superheroes in the DC universe that practically everyone is a friend of Nightwing. He has helped nearly everybody at some point or other, so he’s known for lending a helping hand to anyone who asks. Out of all the many, many, many superheroes in the universe, Dick himself is known as the one any person can go to for help no matter what. There’s never any doubt when it comes to Dick. He will always and without question be there for anyone who needs him. He’s their rock. 

In fact, Dick is probably one of the only characters besides a few prominent heroes like Batman and Superman who everyone can rely on. Everyone has their own reputations, whether it be a good or a bad one. Bruce’s is being dark and broody, but Dick’s is being trustworthy. Everyone can vouch for him. Dick can always be trusted, no matter what. It even says it right here:

And in this panel too, Superman tells Dick that he is the single person who in every place in the multiverse can never be corrupted:

See? Dick is one of the only guys whom every single hero knows he/she can trust and that this is something that will never change. Because Dick is good. Dick will never let anyone down or betray them, it’s just not in his DNA. If anyone is ever in need of help, then you can bet your little tush that Dick Grayson will answer the call, no matter what it costs him. He saves everyone who needs it and is willing to catch them when they fall. Like a safety net. Dick catches people. That is his legacy. He couldn’t save his parents from hitting the ground, but you can trust that he will bust his butt and try his hardest to ensure that from now on he will keep that from happening to anyone else. 

And ever since the Flying Graysons fell, Dick kind of has a thing with falling. It’s a conquered fear, one of which he confronts every day as he soars above cities and saves those who can’t save themselves. But he can’t stand the thought of falling without a net to catch you, so subconsciously that is the role he fills. He has become a metaphor for DC’s safety net, as in he is the one character who everyone can trust to save them, whether they be civilians or other heroes. They can always trust that they can go to him for help when they need it, and Dick in turn will always be ready to save them. He is the one holding his arms out, ready to catch people when they fall and support them for as long as they need him to. He refuses to let anyone down. Dick is DC’s rock, the one column that will never topple over no matter how hard you try. He is a safety net, prepared to catch people when they fall and ready to help them to fly again. Dick’s parents had no safety net, so Dick is going to make sure no one else will have to be without one as long as he’s there. And that my friends, is my epiphany of the day.
