eureka i found it!

Your Lord dwells within you. Why need your outward eyes be opened?
Kabir says: “Listen, my brother! My Lord, who ravishes my eyes, has united himself with me.

Kabir Das

That meeting place is within you. There happens the ultimate union, the ultimate marriage, where you and the whole meet and dissolve into each other, and disappear into each other. That disappearance of the two into one is what ecstasy is. Ecstasy is the ultimate freedom, and then one simply shouts in joy, “This is it! This is it! Eureka! I have found it."And the irony is that you need not go anywhere to find it. It is already there. It is your very core, your very being. If you decide to find it, you can find it this very moment. It does not need a single moment’s postponement. An intense thirst can open the door. A great urgency can right now make you free.

If Kaname had time to work with ppl to create the blood tablets, surely he had time to mention in passing that he had once tried researching a cure for vampires. It was because he lacked something that didn't exist that long ago, yes? But surely he would realize that eventually it probably would? He had a team of researchers and a fellow genius in Aidou. He could have resumed his research after killing the senate and the active dangerous pb's, but chose a more destructive path instead.

Oh my god.

So you think you could do a better job, then?? 

It’s seriously annoying how you people will do anything to pin the blame on Kaname. Somehow you always find a way. I just said that he was THE FIRST PERSON EVER to even BOTHER starting the research - yet all you can focus on is “but he didn’t finish it!!! wah wah!! he made blood tablets but he didn’t finish the cure!!. Well, fuck - it took Aidou well over 50 years into HIS research to even consider the Chairman. But you’re not mentioning that, are you? Nah, you’re acting like Aidou found Kaname’s research and then eureka! I should just hit up the chairman, yay!!

You said he could have resumed his research after the killing of the council. Fam… fam, did you even read the manga? What part of Kaname CONSTANTLY being out of the house because he had to act as the head of vampire society - pretty much their king - to keep the purebloods and hunters at check did you miss? ? ? ? What part of Yuuki always longing for his return, and him assuring her that as soon as things had settled in vampire society, he would spend more time with her and it would be safer for her to venture outside did you miss? 

LITERALLY the first time Yuuki ventures outside on her own - and gets attacked and nearly killed hadn’t it been for zero - Kaname’s in another goddamn meeting. When Yuuki kicks his familiar, you see Kaname smiling to himself while he’s in a meeting

These were unsafe times - he couldn’t just spend all his time in the laboratory, and frankly, I think the cure was the last thing on his mind at the time. He had to protect Yuuki and keep vampire society in check. That’s a WHOLE LOT OF RESPONSIBILITY on his shoulders. But I bet you could do such a better fucking job, right? 

Furthermore - his identity as the ancestor was kept secret from most of society. Somehow Sara Shirabuki knew, and she wanted to devour his power, but for the most part - society didn’t know. So you mean to tell me that he, as just the son of Haruka and Juuri Kuran in the eyes of society, should pull out 10K year old research out of his ass and present it to society?? Like “oopsi look what I found in the family library!! and look, I’m suddenly super knowledgeable about vampire biology and their origins!”. It wouldn’t work.

You’re right about one thing; he did choose a more destructive path, but that was because things weren’t working out no matter how many meetings he attended. Purebloods were still thirsty af for power and blood, and there were still followers of Asato left behind lurking in the scenes and waiting to strike. Besides, genius, say if Kaname decided to focus on the cure, would there be any plot left in the story?? 

God damn it. You are so ungrateful. You dismiss everything Kaname does, and focus on the one possible flaw. Did you even stop to think for a second that if Kaname hadn’t started the research for anti-vampire weapons, there wouldn’ be any hunters or weapons today??

Unless you actually have something intelligent and BASED ON FACTS to come with, do not send me more stupid shit like this. Be gone now

Love isn’t the one who will save you, and you aren’t the one to save love either.

We are all too preoccupied with the notion that when someone loves us, our burdens are automatically lifted. So we search for love like a scientist searching for a cure, endlessly… tirelessly… mindlessly… looking for a promising proponent and calling it love. We all long for that eureka! moment, “I found it! I found the person I want to spend the rest of my life with!” only to learn that they aren’t the person we imagined they would be.

Love isn’t a one-time event. I refuse to believe that when we see someone, we’ll automatically know that he or she is “the one.” Love needs work. It is a continual process of improvement and development. Love requires effort. It is not just about the momentary bliss you feel at the beginning of every relationship. To love someone is to devote your time and energy to make things work.

Love isn’t the one who will save you, and you aren’t the one to save love either. Loving someone does not automatically guarantee you a life that’s worth living. But heck, love is going to make sure the battle is worth fighting for.

I found my Star Wars stash! My complete collection of original Marvel SW comics from the 70s and 80s, plus a couple hundred trading cards! Now I’m enjoying chocolate mousse and a glass of wine while perusing my treasures and deciding which ones my fellow Tumblr nerd friends might like to see. I swear I feel like Golum. “My precious…”

Top 3 Mech Series

Despite popular belief, I have found I have not watched as many mech shows as I thought, even less in terms of good mech shows. So here’s my top 3 good mech shows I have found from all my watching. Note If there from a franchise that has mulitple shows/series in them they’re all counted as one, as all my picks are. 

3. Zoids

There kinda like Gundams but with animals. More often than not the robots are alive and thats okay cause it’s entertaining. It’s pretty cool and I would recommend all of them expect Fuzors.  

2. Eureka Seven

It’s pretty sweet and even has sequel that’s pretty cool. It’s a show about surfing robots and the characters and designs are neat. I would recommend it to any new mecha fans. 

1. Gundams 

Oh course It’s Gundam. It’s Gundam. Almost all of them are amazing and you can watch any and be statifised. Like the newest one Iron Blooded Orphans. It’s freakin Gundam guys.

Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Mickey just needs to keep his head down and stay out of trouble at his new job. Still trouble always manages to find him and when it takes the form of his red haired boss, Mickey’s not sure he can resist even if he wanted to. (Gallavich AU)

Straight Guys Don’t Do Ballet

Mickey is the new pianist at a dance studio, and Ian might be the most annoying person he’s ever met. So naturally, even though it pushes the limits of professionalism, he decides to mess with the guy. Because any guy who does ballet is just asking for it.

You Are Inked On My Skin Long Before We Begin

Mickey’s always been scared of getting his words.  The words which start to show up a couple of weeks before you meet your soulmate, somewhere on your body, beginning so pale they’re barely legible and gradually fading into inky black; the words which will be the first your soulmate ever says to you. He’s hoped that he’ll be like Terry and never get them at all, because he knows that when he meets his soulmate, it’s gonna be a guy, and that’s dangerous, too dangerous to be worth it.
So of course, with his luck, he gets them when he’s only seventeen.

Through the Dawn (series)

Ian meets him at a bar. It becomes a thing, but they never do get around to exchanging names.

Maybe You’ll Be Heard

Prompt: Ian has a speaking difficulty (such as stuttering) so he hates speaking, naturally, Mickey loves his voice - Anon

I Second that Emotion

The words written in a scrawl on the inside of  Ian’s arm don’t make him excited to meet his soulmate. Doesn’t mean he doesn’t want to hear them. He wants them to be said, then laughed about for years to come. The words themselves might not be heartwarming, but the fact that they will come from of Ian’s soulmate makes them special.

Night Sky

Milkoviches didn’t care for the stars in the night sky. They never looked up to see what was out there for them and they didn’t want to know. It was ridiculous to believe the stars could show you who your soul mate was and they never believed in it, no matter how much society and the media made your stars the most important feature of your life.

Sandwich Asshole AU (series)

ian works in the same office building as mickey. they don’t really get along and mickey seriously considers murdering him over a sandwich.

Make it Alone, or Keep a Straight Face

Mickey’s a sarcastic, cynical piece of shit and he knows it. The last thing he wants to do is go out searching for his perfect match like so many with his little unique ability end up doing.  Apparently, anything red and above 85 is considered soul mate material. Mickey had laughed out loud when he read that one.

This is the Fate You’ve Carved On Me (series)

i don’t know what the fuck true love even is but i do want to hang out with you for basically the rest of my life

Fake it Till You Make It

“Remember that one time you asked me to do that thing for you, and I never asked any questions, and you didn’t explain a fucking thing, but I did it anyway? Do you remember what you said? That you owed me? Big time? I’m calling in that favor.”
In which Ian did a stupid thing and Mickey is there to bail him out. What are best friends for, right?

A Sort of Fairytale

By the time Ian is tossed out of the army and makes his reluctant way home, Mickey is long gone.


Mickey hates to be a walking cliché but—looking at Ian? It feels like the stars and the moon and the fucking sun have all aligned. Boom! Bam! Eureka! I have found the meaning of freakin’ life dipshits! Epiphany.

The Sky is Blue

My response to the prompt: “An AU where everything is black and white until you meet your soulmate.”

We Only Own Our Hell (You Don’t Know Me That Well)

Mickey and Ian meet when they both ditch class, only they just smoke weed and talk, but Mickey can’t seem to get Ian out of his head.

Private (School) Parts

Ian hadn’t expected much from his junior year of high school, spent at the prestigious and expensive boarding school the Chicago Academy. Then he meets Mickey Milkovich, his detention-seeking, chain smoking, rebel-without-a-cause roommate, attending the school on a scholarship he never wanted, and everything changes.

‘Til the Fire Blazing Light

‘Gallagher what?’
‘My last name. Ian Gallagher.’
Duh. Mickey shook his hand, feeling ridiculous at the gesture. ‘Milkovich.’ (soulmate au)

Love is a Disease

Ian had only read it that one time. It was in this book he had to read for school.
“Love is a mental disease.”
It sounded like a load of bullshit to him, honestly.

Alright, so this is possibly the best or worst cross-over EVER.  I present to you, Bikini Bottom’s Jaeger, THE HASH-SLINGING SLASHER.  

By the way, the Seashell Bra shoots missiles a la Stiker Eureka.

Oh geez what have I done…I was supposed to be working on a self-portrait for school…

Font is Spy Agency found here
