everything has beauty but not everyone can see

💐 Kokoro by @ellesanimalhaven 🌸


I had first dreamed of this amazingly beautiful town a few years ago and have been wanting to revisit for a while now, and I’m still blown away by the amount of work that went into its completion. You can see all the love and attention to detail that Elle has put into it, and I’m sure that everyone who has also dreamed of Kokoro will agree with me! 

So I made another collection! This round of inspirational quotes goes to the philosophers. Like the other times, I hope you enjoy these inspirational quotes and find them inspiring too!

Plato

  • “The beginning is the most important part of the work.”
  • “A good decision is based on knowledge and not on numbers.”
  • “The good is the beautiful.”

Lao Tzu

  • “From caring comes courage.”
  • “Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
  • “When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you.”
  • “At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.”
  • “Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them - that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”

Aristotle

  • “Happiness depends upon ourselves.”
  • “You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.”

Socrates

  • “Be as you wish to seem.”
  • “It is not living that matters, but living rightly.”
  • “Let him that would move the world first move himself.”

Epictetus

  • “No great thing is created suddenly.”
  • “The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best.”
  • “It takes more than just a good looking body. You’ve got to have the heart and soul to go with it.”
  • “First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.”
  • “Practice yourself, for heaven’s sake in little things, and then proceed to greater.”
  • “There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.”
  • “Make the best use of what is in your power, and take the rest as it happens.”
  • “Do not seek to bring things to pass in accordance with your wishes, but wish for them as they are, and you will find them.”
  • “It is not he who reviles or strikes you who insults you, but your opinion that these things are insulting.”
  • “Neither should a ship rely on one small anchor, nor should life rest on a single hope.”
  • “It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.”
  • “The greater the difficulty the more glory in surmounting it. Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests.”
  • “You may be always victorious if you will never enter into any contest where the issue does not wholly depend upon yourself.”

Soren Kierkegaard

  • “Be that self which one truly is.”
  • “Life has its own hidden forces which you can only discover by living.”
  • “The highest and most beautiful things in life are not to be heard about, nor read about, nor seen but, if one will, are to be lived.”
  • “Face the facts of being what you are, for that is what changes what you are.”
  • “Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.”

Hypatia

  • “Life is an unfoldment, and the further we travel the more truth we can comprehend. To understand the things that are at our door is the best preparation for understanding those that lie beyond.”
  • “Reserve your right to think, for even to think wrongly is better than not to think at all.”

Confucius

  • “The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.”
  • “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.”
  • “Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”
  • “Wherever you go, go with all your heart.”
  • “When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.”
  • “Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”

Albert Camus

  • “To be happy we must not be too concerned with others.”
  • “Basically, at the very bottom of life, which seduces us all, there is only absurdity, and more absurdity. And maybe that’s what gives us our joy for living, because the only thing that can defeat absurdity is lucidity.”
  • “I know of only one duty, and that is to love.”
  • “The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”
  • “You cannot create experience. You must undergo it.”
  • “You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.”
You might not think you’re anything beyond ordinary but everyone who comes into contact with you, even for just a moment, can see that there’s more to you than you possibly know yourself. You’re beautiful that’s undeniable but it’s not a superficial type of beauty, it’s natural just like everything about you. You don’t realize the lasting effect you have on some people. Your radiant smile has the ability to make everyone in the room genuinely smile in return even if they are having the worst possible day. That in itself is a gift but it doesn’t stop there. Your generosity extends to the hearts of everyone you lend a helping hand to. Every single thing I’ve come to see in you shows the purest of hearts. Everything about you is extraordinary and it’s about time someone tells you.

dear //the signs//,

dear //aries//: why do you move so fast? you’re so caught up in yourself you’re missing what’s around you, slow down and look around. one day you’re going to be old and on your death bed unable to breathe, not because your lungs are failing, but because you regret taking everything for granted. stop thinking about yourself and being so impatient. things don’t grow under stress, they die. 

dear //taurus//: you cant buy your own happiness. sure, it makes you feel better but it doesn’t fill the emptiness in your chest. stop expecting everything to happen for you, being lazy isn’t going to get you anywhere and sure isn’t going to help the situation. fixing the problem isn’t losing the fight, it’s putting everything else beside and showing you have a heart of gold you didn’t need your money to buy. 

dear //gemini//: using people’s weaknesses against them and using your underhand tactics isn’t winning. you’re so superficial you come off shallow, you need to let people in, just like how they let you in. but doing what you’re doing isn’t going to get you there. you cant expect everything and give nothing in return. telling someone your favourite colour isn’t going to kill you, let them in even in the smallest ways. if you don’t you’re gonna end up alone, and no one is going to care. not everyone is going to hurt you.

dear //cancer//: feeling sorry for yourself isn’t going to make it better. not everything is intended to hurt you and making it a big deal is going to cause unnecessary problems. you can be oversensitive but that doesn’t mean your feelings are invalid, it’s just that person didn’t mean to insult you, it was only a joke so instead of pouting, laugh along and maybe everything will stop being so hurtful and you can see the world isn’t revolving around you, you can hopefully see how beautiful it all is.

dear //leo//: not everything about you has to be a grand gesture or so goddamn pretentious. we already know how much you’re worth and so many people already want a piece of you. you’re giving it to them so much, you’re changing yourself to be the most known person in the room. you’re better as your true self. if you show too much, people are gonna see the gold in you and try to steal it. being the talk of everyone comes with just as many insults as it does compliments. you don’t need to do all that shit to be noticed.

dear //virgo//: being fussy over what you want and then being cold once it’s been given to you isn’t okay. people try hard to please you and its so hard for them. they’re just trying, why cant you see that? why does everything have to be so perfect for you? people don’t try forever, and i know you’re inflexible from changing your opinion, but you cant keep this going. being so cold. people are going to leave and not even your bed is going to be warm anymore.

dear //libra//: changing your mind at the last minute all the time is going to get you left out of plans and events. you’re unreliable and indecisive. the weight on your back from the foundations you built are going to crack if you cant keep your mind on one thing and you keep going along with different ideas. i know you just wanna follow all the paths your mind makes, but if you do that, your towers are going crumble and you’re going to be sitting on the rocks alone rather than in skyscrapers with your friends. you can’t keep rebuilding forever, make up your mind.

dear //scorpio//: why couldn’t you see they loved you and only you? why did you have to trick them into something they already were doing? they weren’t going anywhere, they didn’t want to. keeping them locked up like a possession is only going to make them want to be further away. you have to start trusting them. they only ever wanted you to do that, why couldn’t you? the saying “if you love them let them go” doesn’t always mean break it off with them, it can mean don’t watch their every move and let them have some freedom. trust. them. before you lose them completely.

dear //sagittarius//: people can’t assume what you’re feeling. being unemotional is only going to make people leave. warmth is physical love and if you’re cold everyone isn’t going to give you the love you need, you need to give it back. it isn’t philosophical to be so unresponsive to emotions. you cant keep this up forever, your walls will break and no one is going to be around to pick up the pieces because you would’ve made them all leave. they just wanted to know how you were doing.

dear //capricorn//:  talking to you is like talking to a brick wall, you’re living in a black and white world with your lacking of imagination. people wanna live in colour, it isn’t the 1970′s anymore. bossing people around isn’t going to get them to listen. don’t be proud of making everyone listen to you. that’s how uprisings happen. listen to what people have to say, let them inspire the ideas i know you have in your mind somewhere. if you don’t change, your empire is going to fall and all your friends are going to be the one’s knocking down the door.

dear //aquarius//:  being so far away from everyone on earth isn’t going to get you any closer to the aliens that might not even be out there. you don’t need to hide your emotions to come off cool and distant, if anything they’re just making you seem unwilling to show affection or establish connections with anybody. i know you like to be alone, but sooner or later you’re just going to be lonely. and when you come back down from the atmosphere, no one’s going to be around for you to call home.

dear //pisces//: feeling sorry for yourself isn’t going to make everyone else around you do the same. you cant escape all your problems by hiding the truth or playing innocent. you need to face what you’ve done and stop acting like everyone else is in the wrong. people aren’t gonna feel sorry for you anymore if you’re so self-pitying, you already do that enough and people are going to grow tired.


**check your moon as well**

some Tadashi Hamada headcanons because why the heck not

–he’s rather sweet and shy to new people, but he opens up pretty easily once he’s introduced to them.

–he’s pretty snarky and sassy around his friends, and he’s a complete and utter jerk to Hiro just because he’s his little brother and he can.

–he sings in the shower. really loudly. like, at the top of his lungs loudly. he’s not a bad singer–actually, he has a beautiful voice–but sometimes Aunt Cass has to tell him to quiet down because people in the café downstairs can hear him over, like, everything

he’s also a surprisingly great dancer, but sometimes Aunt Cass has to yell at him because his dancing gets a little too suggestive

he’s terrified of creepy crawlies. whenever he sees one he visibly freaks out, probably makes an unmanly shriek noise, grabs whatever’s close to him and just chucks it at the offending insect. Hiro thinks it’s hilarious.

–he LOVES texting. he’s always texting Hiro and everyone else every chance he gets, and Gogo says he’s addicted to it.

–the little moped/scooter thing he drives in the movie was originally his father’s. normal vehicles never really caught his interest as a kid, but he loved the scooter. his dad would always take him for rides on it, and he promised Tadashi that it would become his when he was old enough. after his parents’ deaths, he never worked up the nerve to even touch his father’s scooter until he was around 16 and got his license. even then he felt bad for tampering with it, but he couldn’t just leave it lying around forever. besides, normal vehicles still didn’t interest him much.

–he sometimes wears glasses, but he only needs them to read.

–when he was four years old and his mother was pregnant with Hiro, he swore up and down that she swallowed a ball. so when Hiro was born, when he saw his little brother for the first time, he said in a very serious voice “that is one weird-looking ball.”

–he loves coffee, and every time Hiro gives him crap about it, he replies with something along the lines of “it’s no worse than those sugary sodas you like to drink.”

–he’s always sneaking sweets from the café downstairs, but he’ll never admit it.

–he’ll also never admit that he sometimes eats Hiro’s gummy bears on him

–he doesn’t watch a whole lot of TV, but when he does find a show that he likes, he gets hooked, and ends up binge-watching it on Netflix for like 12 hours straight

he prefers soft music to hard music, and upbeat music to edgy music. heavy metal scares him.

–there’s a reason he’s usually wearing a blazer or some sort of coat–he’s always cold!

–he gets slightly cross-eyed when he’s panicked

–he picked up a little bit on Aunt Cass’ baking skills, and he makes the best chocolate chip cookies in San Fransokyo

Love is patient,
except sometimes, it isn’t. like when you’ve already gone months without seeing her and you’re so badly yearning for more of her that it hurts, it hurts you deep in your core. like when you can’t wait to be with her again, like when you want so badly want to make up for lost time; to trace the patterns of freckles on her shoulders that you haven’t felt in so long; to kiss her and lose yourself in her again like you did the first time, like you haven’t done in so long. like when you’re in a hurry to become us all over again and waiting just one more day is enough to drive you crazy.

love is kind.
except sometimes, it isn’t. because sometimes love is hearing a sound and thinking for a split second that she’s here with you, only to realize a moment later that you are waking up alone after she’s already woken up hours before you, miles away from you. and it’s cruel, it’s cruel to love someone you can’t be with, it’s cruel to love someone you can’t comfort when she’s upset and crying, it’s cruel to love someone you can only reach through text messages and phone calls. they’re enough to get you through the day, but never enough at the same time. 

It does not envy,
except sometimes, it does. because there are people who are able to take her out to dinner, to go to the movies with her, to go over her house and just sit there, to be with her - and you can’t. and green is all you can see because they just don’t realize these simple pleasure are everything to you; green is all you can see because you can’t do the things that they take for granted. 

it does not boast,
except sometimes, it does.  and how can it not? when the most amazing creature that God has ever created is yours, yours alone and no one else. how can it not succumb to the desires to shout to the world about how blessed you are to have this beautiful human in your life? how can it not tell everyone and anyone who is listening, over and over and over again, just how much you love her? 

it is not proud
except sometimes it is. because pride is all you can feel for her, when she calls you with good news or when she accomplishes something she didn’t think she could do or when she achieves a goal she has always wanted to achieve or when she does something that makes your heart swell up for love with her and you’re so full, full to the brim, that you can barely breathe but with your final breaths, you will use them to exclaim just how proud of her you are, just how proud you are to be in love with her. 

It does not dishonor others,
except sometimes, it does. but not intentionally. sometimes, other people are so offended and disgusted by your love for her, you have dishonored them without even realizing it. when you hold her hand in a crowded store or kiss her cheek when you meet her at the airport or cry in her arms when you say goodbye at the train station, you will attract stares before you even know what to do about it. let them stare. because her hand, her kiss, her arms mean more to you than anything in the world. and sometimes, dishonoring others is okay as long as you aren’t dishonoring yourself. 

it is not self-seeking,
except sometimes, it is. like when you just spent a week straight with her but the second you are back home, you start looking at plane tickets for the next time you can be together. you start planning, picking dates, calling off work, arranging rides to the airport and train station. all because you can’t stand to be away from her, because you crave being with her more than you can even begin to put into words. because you love her and you want to be with her and a week is just never long enough. 

it is not easily angered,
except sometimes, it is. because in the day and age of digital media, Helvetica Neue still is not able to convey sarcasm or any feelings really. and it is so easy to misconstrue or misunderstand, it is so easy for tempers to flare and tears to fall. and then she calls you, and you can hear her voice and your anger subsides. we must allow the anger to visit but we must not allow it to stay.

it keeps no record of wrongs.
except sometimes, it does. memories are stronger than we think and you were such a bitch to her the other day, you can’t stop thinking about it, even after she’s already forgiven you and moved on from it. you can’t move on. you keep thinking about the things you said, the things you didn’t say, the things you wish you said, the way you said it, the way you should have said it. you were wrong and you know it, but she still loves you anyway. 

It always protects,
always. when you wake up in the middle of the night, sweating and shaking, she will hold you until you can sleep again. when you forget how to breathe, she will put your hand to her chest and remind you. when anxiety eats away at you from the inside out, she will make you feel safe. when you can’t get out of bed, she will lay there with you. when it hurts, she will take away your pain. 

always trusts,
always. when she says she’s going out drinking, you trust that she won’t get drunk and drive. when she smokes five cigarettes in one day, you trust that she will take it easy tomorrow. when she stops replying to your messages, you trust that she is well and safe. you trust that she is not lying to you. you trust that she has your best interest at heart. you trust that she would never intentionally do anything to harm you. you trust that she loves you as much as she says she does. 

always hopes,
always. because the future seems so bright when her smile is all you can see. because she called you up today to talk about name options for the baby boy you hope to have one day. because you can’t wait for the day your home is full of cats and dogs. because you can’t wait for the day your home becomes our home.

always perseveres.
always. because she’s worth it. she’s worth all of the flight delays. she’s worth all of cab services that won’t let you pay with a credit card. she’s worth having to change your plans to see each other because real life gets in the way and you can’t make it, not this time. she’s worth all of the tears you shed because you're anticipating saying goodbye. she’s worth all of the travel anxiety, all of the money spent just to be together, all of the days you can’t be together. because she’s worth it. because you’re both worth it. 

Love never fails.
never.

—  1 Corinthians 13:4-8
(cc, 2016)
Deamus

I feel like the time Dean and Seamus spent apart during the final book is beautiful in a really sad way. Like Seamus is hella gay and everyone knows it but Dean’s too scared to come out as bi and definitely too scared to tell Seamus he like him.

Imagine Seamus writing letters and poems for Dean but he can’t send them because he has no idea where he is or if he’s even alive. Meanwhile, Dean is drawing pictures of Seamus to pass the time and to keep him from going mad. Ted sees the drawings and he suddenly becomes Deamus trash #1 and starts to do everything in his power to protect Dean so he eventually sacrifices himself for the ship.

Imagine them both confiding in Luna; Seamus during his time with her at D.A. meetings and Dean during their time at Malfoy Manor and Shell Cottage. She’s showering them in positivity and making sure they don’t get lonely. She also tells Dean about how Seamus is and how cool it was when he stood up to the Carrows after they said some shit about muggle borns.

Imagine Dean sitting in The Hog’s Head waiting to go through the portrait to see Seamus but oh god what if he’s got a boyfriend? What if he’s forgotten about Dean? So, nervously, he goes through the tunnel and hears a roar of delight and suddenly a pair of familiar arms are flung around his neck. He doesn’t even notice how bashed up Sea’s face is because he’s too happy that he’s back in Hogwarts and reunited with his best mate/soulmate. But when he does see Seamus’ face, he promises to never leave him again and to protect him forever and then they’re kissing and everyone’s cheering because they shipped it from the start.

Imagine them fighting side and hauling each other out the way of spells and always having each other’s backs because neither can bear to lose the other again.

Imagine them getting married in Ireland after it becomes legal and even though Seamus’ parents haven’t been the most supportive of his homosexual tendencies, they still turn up and the both dance with Dean.

the law of attraction: my smol volley squad.

In response to Aki’s previous ask here, this is my small opinion/character analysis on what kind of person they’d fall for, how they would fall in love, and what kind of person would be best for my volley squad, based on what little i know about human beings and relationships in real life. Here goes!

Kuroo Tetsurou.

How They Fall: We can all agree that Kuroo’s pretty adept at reading people, picking out their underbelly and prodding at the right places. But it might be because of that acute observation that he doesn’t really listen to his gut very much (when it comes to attraction, he cares about rationality less when it’s with friends- when he doesn’t have a motive or goal). I feel like Kuroo would be the type who thinks he knows what he wants and goes for it, but somehow it doesn’t really click until it’s too late that he’s missing something, or he made a mistake (usually about himself, not the other person), and then he’s in a pickle, because he also doesn’t seem like the type to be able to discard people easily because he’s decided in his mind that this person is someone he chose, and he should bear the consequences.

However, I think Kuroo would be the wary type. He might find himself attracted to people easily (probably because he seems such an easy-going/flexible person), but it’s just a small electric shock kind of feeling, or a ‘oh, wow, they’re cute’, and because he knows himself to some extent, he brushes a lot of these feelings away because he thinks that it might just be a false alarm. But that’s just for attraction. I think for someone like Kuroo to really fall in love with someone, he’s level headed enough for it to be a slow and deep process. They’re more than just a significant other, this is someone he’s trusted in, he believes to have his back. I think they’d start off as friends, then very good friends, and perhaps after some soul searching, they become actually intimate confidants and perhaps one day Kuroo will realize that the reason why he hasn’t particularly been interested in other people lately is because everything he needs, he already has fulfilled in this one friend, one person. Precisely because Kuroo doesn’t seem like a fickle person, to me, he would fit the slow to trust, yet incredibly trusting and loyal once he opens up to you.

Sometime Around Midnight

A/N: i decided to write this after seeing an ex boyfriend in a club one night making out with his girlfriend and it was emotionally harrowing i was so drunk i went in the bathroom and cried lmao (we’ve been broken up for ages too btw lmao)

Song(s) Used: Sometime Around Midnight - The Airborne Toxic Event (it legit relates to what happened to me)

Pairing: Dan x Reader

Warnings: swearing, alcohol, sad thoughts (everything that makes up my personality)

Word Count: 1,448 words

Genre: Angst (I just really love angst okay)

Ps. Lyrics are in bold and italic

Dans P.O.V

“and it starts sometime around midnight, or atleast thats when you lose yourself for a minute or two…”

Midnight has always been a vulnerable time. Midnight is when you’re at your emotional peak, some could say.

Things in my life werent going the way i had planned, lets say. But I decided I would try my best to have a great time while I could. I mean, I was in Orlando for Playlist Live surrounded by amazing company; so I decided to follow the crowd to a party and now, here I am at midnight.

I dont know if it was because it was midnight, or because of all the alcohol I had consumed during the night, but there was something that was making me feel vulnerable, almost like I was anxious and on edge. Maybe it wasn’t either of those two. Maybe it was something else?

But then she walks in, and it’s almost like everything has frozen around her.

“as you stand under the bar lights, and the band plays some song about forgetting yourself for a while, and the pianos this melancholy soundtrack to her smile; and that white dress shes wearing you haven’t seen her for a while…”

(Y/n) walks in looking as beautiful as she always has been, walking in wearing an amazing white dress. The band started playing some song about letting go and forgetting yourself.

How ironic.

I look towards (Y/N) and I can see her smiling brightly at everyone, the same smile she always gave me until I fucked it all up. Her smile alone is enough to take me back to all of the great times we had together, because thats the same smile she always had on, and the melody of the piano solo of the song in the background is reminding me of those times,

those times I will never get back.

I just stood by the bar, watching her, evaluating her. I was too busy watching her that I never noticed the boy that walked in behind her…

“but you know that she is watching, she’s laughing, shes turning, she holding her tonic like a crux…”

For a second, I caught her eye, and I felt the heat rush to my face and I gave her a shy smile, but she gave one back.

She walks up to her group of youtuber friends at the party, and it seems like she’s having a great time, she’s laughing, she’s dancing and holding her drink as if her life depended on it.

All while looking my way, kind of like a message to tell me that her life is great.

But seeing her so happy and having fun is almost breaking my heart, because I’m feeling the complete opposite

“the room suddenly spinning she walks up and asks how you are, so you can smell her perfume; you can see her lying naked in your arms…”

The night started to progress and I got even drunker to forget about all of the memories that came with seeing (Y/N) at the party tonight. I guess I should’ve known that she would be here, but part of me was convinced that she would never show up.

I was so drunk the the room was practically spinning and I felt like I could barely stand up. And for a second I thought I was hallucinating because I could see her start walking towards me; this was honestly the last thing I was expecting.

“Hey Daniel, it’s been a while. How have you been?” She asks in that sweet voice of hers that I’ve missed. The voice I never thought I would hear in person again, especially standing right in front of me.

I was way too entranced to talk. The fact that my ex girlfriend was standing in front of me, she was also wearing my favorite perfume of hers, and boy did that perfume bring back more memories. Memories of us laying in bed together, her wrapped up in my arms, like it was always supposed to be.

"Yeah I’ve been alright” I lied.

"and so there’s a change in your emotions. and all these memories come rushing like feral waves to your mind; of the curl of your bodies like two perfect circles intertwined; and you feel hopeless and homeless and lost in the haze of the wine…”

After the awkward conversation about small talk, she walks off back to our- I mean her friends and I start to feel guilty, because maybe if I wasn’t such a fuck up when we were together, she would still be with me, we would still be together.

Watching her walk off started bringing back even more memories, like how our bodies would just mold and curl together, like we were perfect for each other, maybe we were perfect for each other, and I blew it.

All of these memories I’ve tried repressing since we broke up are starting to come back and their becoming too much for me, and I can feel myself getting lost in the haze of all of the alcohol that I’ve been drinking, and I can’t help but start to feel hopeless and homeless.

I feel homeless because she was my home.

"then she leaves with someone you don’t know, but she makes sure you saw her, she looks right at you and bolts…”

Phil sees me looking distressed as I continue to stand by the bar and get progressively more drunk than I already was, but he doesn’t know why, he hasn’t seen her yet. But I continue to watch her, watch her like I’ll never see her again.

All of a sudden, she starts saying her goodbyes to everyone, and she leaves, she leaves with a boy. A boy who isn’t me. A boy I don’t know.

But as she’s about to leave, she looks right at me, as if she want me to see her leave; and I did. I watched her bolt out of the room with another guy.

"as she walks out the door you blood boiling; your stomach in ropes. oh and your friends say ‘what is it? you look like you’ve seen a ghost…’”

I couldn’t help the feeling of my stomach tying itself up in knots. But the more I thought about it, the more my blood started boiling because that should’ve been me leaving with her. Not him. Me.

Phil finally approaches me, and sees me looking even more distressed and upset. I can feel my face start to pale as I think more about her and him.

"Dan are you alright? You look like you’ve seen a ghost or something” Phil asks very concerned.

I shake my head no and start gathering up my things to go.

"I have to go…” and I get up and leave.

"then you walk under the street lights, and you’re too drunk to notice that everyone is staring at you. you don’t care what you look like the whole world is falling around you…”

I bolt out of the party and go outside, hoping to catch up with her and see her. I want to tell her how sorry I am for everything.

I can feel myself stumbling around the street trying to walk, too drunk to notice that everyone was staring at me.

I don’t care about the fact that I’m stumbling around the street, looking like a drunk crazy man, because it feels like everything is falling around me, and everything is falling apart.

"You just have to see her…”

I need to see her

"You just have to see her…”

I really need to find her

"You just have to see her…”

I want to see her to apologize

"You just have to see her…”

But I know she probably doesn’t want to see me

"You just have to see her….”

I really need to see her, but I know that if I do, she’ll break me in two; like I broke her in two.

"You know that she’ll break you in two…”

anonymous asked:

are there any signs or placements that would cause someone to have good instincts? like their gut is always right, they can get a "read" on people and situations? anything that would cause them to have a good "sense" and intuition, especially with regard to judging people's nature upon meeting them?

Yes… the water signs. Sun, moon, mercury, mars or rising in any of these signs, cancer scorpio and/or pisces. Moon in the 4th/8th/12th. Personally I believe Scorpio influence/moon in the 8th has the strongest intuition, their gut is always right. Cancer influence/moon in the 4th have great instincts because they have very good survival skills and are very protective. Also very intuitive, the moon rules intuition and is cancer’s ruler. Pisces influenced/moon in the 12th can experience lack of boundaries, an overflow of too many emotions at once, and can be very naïve people, because neptune is gullible and wants to see the beauty in everything/everyone. However they are very intuitive because they have an innate ability to fully understand other people and morph into their shoes, so they usually “just know” things. Scorpio is the best at telling other people’s motives, they probe right into other’s psyches with just a glance. Cancer and scorpio are the best at knowing when someone is lying. Cancers also have natural motherly instincts, so they “just know” things most of the time, with no logical explanation.

What about a NightAngel Model AU but they still have beautiful blue skin and wings respectively? Mutant Models!

* warren is an extremely popular model; his wings are so beautiful and he’s an enigma in the world of mutants, so everyone adores him.
* although he is well-known in the media, nobody really knows him. warren has a mysterious vibe that can be seen in both his modelling and how he acts toward people.
* kurt is a much smaller model – not everyone thinks his blue skin is beautiful and it’s rare for him to be featured heavily in a photo shoot. he finds it difficult to break into the modelling scene.
* kurt’s first really big shoot is with warren; his first impression of warren is disappointing and the pair clash, but they look brilliant on camera together.
* they are constantly put together after that, forcing them to grow closer. nothing ever happens between them, though. warren is too scared.
* warren is in an accident and his wings are almost completely ruined; they’ll grow back, of course, but never enough for him to return to his career.
* this destroys warren, because he believes his wings to be the only thing beautiful about him, and everyone around has always seemed to agree with that.
* kurt is the only one to still see the beauty in warren – the same way warren seemed to be only one truly seeing how gorgeous kurt is.

Rowaelin parent headcanons

Rowaelin Headcanons *with the kiddies* (feat. pregnant Aelin and Sappy Daddy Rowan)

Nessian Manorian Feysand - Other baby Headcanons :)

***


 -Rowan would be the most protective husband ever because he sees Aelin but he can’t help but think about Lyria and how he wasn’t there for her omg the tears are real

 -anyways so Rowan is on it as fuck like Aelin don’t have to do shit like he makes her breakfast in bed helps her get dressed when she’s too big and ties her shoes when she can’t reach her feet anymore.

-Aelin Lowkey is annoyed with him 24/7 but she’s also emotional and hormonal as hell and he’s the only one who will put up with her random rampages.

-she’s also horny All. The. Time. Rowan also helps with this 😏😏

-when she goes into labour Rowan is calm and helps her breath and pretty much treats her like she’s a wounded solider to the point where she’s like SHOW SOME EMOTION YOU BASTARD and at this point he freaks out.

-so they have a little girl and she’s crying and so is Aelin and so is Rowan but then the healer is like ‘oh no m8’ and Rowan freezes and he thinks there must be something seriously wrong because Aelin is still in serious pain and the healer looks really concerned

-and then everyone realises that she’s still giving birth. Yep. They’re having twins.

-and at this point Rowan is holding his baby girl and he has to hand her away because holy shit he’s gonna faint.

-and then they have a beautiful baby boy too and it’s everything Rowan and Aelin wanted. Their own lil’ family.

-So they are like the best little fam ever.

-Aelin is the most dedicated mother ever and loves her babies so much. She takes them to the markets around Terrasen so that everyone can see her beautiful (and best dressed) bubs.

-every time she sees other babies she’s like ‘that could be your mate. Or that could be your mate’ she’s like Oprah seriously.

-(she’s still hormonal and just full of love)

-especially for her man. Damn seeing him with children before was bad enough but when she sees him with their own kids??? Sees him playing with them and making them giggle??? She’s didn’t realise that she could love him even more.

-so their little girl is soooo troublesome even for a baby. Like the type of baby that throws their food away and smirks. So like she’s Aelin 110%.

-and their boy has a perpetual frown and it’s so cute. Like can you just imagine his and Rowan’s matching frowns. Aelin loves it and makes it her personal goal to make them collectively smile.

-when one of their kids cry during the night the other one always joins in. It happens so often that Aelin freaks out when she doesn’t hear them. It happens one night and she gets so panicked to only realise that Rowan is gone so she quietly goes next door to the babies room and sees Rowan holding both the babies, one in each arm, AND HES SINGING TO THEM IN THE ANCIENT LANGUAGE and tears come to Aelin’s because she never expected to be this happy in a million years.

Continue loving each other as brothers and sisters in Christ.

Give a love that is so pure and unselfish, a love that is not based on what others can give, a love that sees beauty beyond imperfections, a love that will not disappear in spite of everything. Love in such a way that those who thirst for it will be quenched and those who are hungry for it will be well fed. Look at them through the eyes of your Savior and see the value of everyone you meet. They need love in all purity and they need someone who will show it. Show people the kind of love God gave us, because it has a power that can turn the world upside down.

Another one of the “Stardust to Stardust” series…


A dead buzzard I saw dying with my own eyes. I sat in the train to school and saw this bird hit the window and it fell down on the ground..An awful and impressive thing to see..

I know it’s a natural reaction of humans to be repulsive by death..but I’ve always had a fascination for this ever since I was a kid and I’m exploring this fascination…

I see beauty in certain things that are hard to explain, even for myself…but I know that beyond the sadness there is a certain beauty in death, that I’m trying to show in my works.

I know this means not everyone will like my work, but at least, I can somehow try to make at least someone look at this in a different way than they are used to…for me death is part of nature, part of life..eventually everything will die, but nothing will ever be wasted..

Even the end of life… has a sublime beauty…

I’ve always hated the “bio”. lol I never know what to say about myself.

Okay so, I guess I’ll start with my name, I’m Jenny. I like tattoos. I like photography and I also take a lot of pictures of myself, but don’t post half of them. I like to dress up, it makes me feel classy, important. I like the beach and taking long drives. And I love music. I like people and can always see the twinkle that everyone has in their eye. You know.. how there’s always something about a person that makes them beautiful.. no matter how ugly some may seem or not seem. I can always find the thing. I love deep conversations.. about anything and everything. A conversation lasting longer than five minutes would be the bees knees. I just wanna make some new friends. If I caught your eye, get my attention.

im gonna give u plot stuff since the last one was mostly characterization thank you so much for asking about this i love you

  • it starts like this: jordie is dead, and kaz is on his own on the new york streets running dirty work for the Dregs, a gang based in brooklyn but slowly spreading throught the greater nyc area
  • he’s been a dedicated member so far so some higher ups tell him to recruit so they can get further into the manhattan area. they have to be good, they have to be sneaky, and they need to be able to start working the richer parts of the city if they want to keep their territory
  • they think its crazy, but kaz goes the the youth shelter. 
    • he finds 4 kids possible recruits: a girl with a secretive smile and so light on her feet he wouldnt have seen her coming if he didnt feel naturally drawn to her, a boy with restless energy and impeccable aim, a girl with a odd accent and a ruthlessness underneath her bright smile that reminds him of his reflection, and a seemingly nervous boy who turns out to have a sharp tongue and an even sharper mind. 
    • all of them need a chance, a home, something to belong to.
    • so he gives it to them.
  • the Dregs call them their crows, because they’ve never let a score go and never forget who theyve played.
  • theyre led by a dangerous young man with dark leather gloves that hide the blood of those who don’t pay staining his pale skin
    • (or so the rumors say)
  • the Dregs were dangerous enough but these Crows the NYPD are hearing about? they seem even worse and theyre in league with a gang that was already giving them hell in every type of thievery under the sun
    • they once had suspicions that they stole a hot dog cart
    • (they totally did. it was movie night, ok? kaz disappeared for an hour with jesper because inej mentioned off hand it would be a good idea for dinner.)
  • rookie cop fresh out of the academy Matthias Helvar is shoved onto the task force specializing on their cases because no one wants to work there since they can literally never find anything but a spray paint tag of a crow, it’s barely evidence and more of a taunt than anything
  • matthias finally makes a breakthrough because he sees her
    • he caught her when busting that street fighting ring that gained him what little respect he has in the department
    • she was wiping the floor with men twice her size
    • he hates that he catches himself thinking about how her full cheeks brightened when her incessant commentary in holding finally got him to laugh
    • when she disappeared from the cells but showed up at his door he didnt report it, he still doesnt know why he totally knows why, he just hates that it goes against everything he’s supposed to stand for but she’s strong and beautiful and she ate the cookies he made with a reverence he didn’t think possible
  • she’s flirting with some guards for a tall, intimidating looking fancy building that he walks by while on patrol. everyone got called in today for extra security while some big UN summit is going down. 
  • they make eye contact and he can see that she knows exactly what he’s thinking, but he has no idea if he can actually arrest her
  • *cue shit hitting the fan via alarms going off in cars as a plane flies dangerously low over the buildings in the distance releasing what looks like white dust*
  • suddenly wylan’s distraction explosion is going off, the guards have been taken out by nina, jesper’s screeching to a stop in a beat up van with “THE TANK” spray painted on the side and yelling for them to get in, pointing at the growing dust cloud, inej and kaz come barreling around the corner after slipping out the back dragging wylan with them, and theyre all caught staring at each other as this thick white cloud is coming toward them down the road and time is running out
  • they all get in, because well, what else can they do?
    • kaz: “nina why the fuck is there a pig in our van”
    • jesper: “are you sure he’s a cop? he looks like he could be a stripper”
    • matthias: “EXCUSE YOU”
    • wylan: “he has a point”
    • nina: “jes DRIVE”
    • matthias: “i swear to god i’m arresting all of you”
  • they arent going to outrun it. whatever this cloud thing is, it’s moving fast, and theyre are more planes flying over head.
  • inej leans up front, yanks the wheel, and pulls the emergency brake so theyre in an alley, and closes all the vents. they use a roll of duct tape and their jackets to start sealing doors
  • they may not know what the hell that cloud is but it does not look inviting or healthy in the slightest
  • it’s 2 hours of uncomfortable silence with the occasional snippy comment until the air clears
  • matthias can’t get anybody on radio from the precinct. there’s no cell service. 
  • the city that never sleeps is dead silent.
  • that is, until a noise no one can really place starts to get louder and louder
  • they all get back in the van, crouching down, because something about all of this feels wrong
  • what can only be described as a horde of…not-quite-people goes running by
  • they look like they have bulging white veins. boils and blisters that look oddly like mushrooms are covering their skin
  • they look…decaying
  • jesper turns to rest of them, terror on every line of his face, and completely serious says, “Zombies”
  • he’s met with silent agreement until matthias finally breaks the moment. 
  • “you have got to be fucking kidding me.”

Why you said in your tags Louis isn't big enough for a big publication? Like wtf? He's big enough for everything. They just need to end the fake shit around him aka the baby and then the girlfriend and clarify his profesional future and then he can do whatever he wants. He's artsy and beautiful enough to do everything. Just... give him some credit please

Listen, I love that boy to death and I wanna see him plastered everywhere with everyone appreciating him the way he deserves. However, what has he done so far? Be realistic - one collab with a DJ that as an artist doesn’t rely on getting #1 on the charts but focuses on gigging around the world, with a song that was in no way promoted by him or his team. What would the publication’s angle be here - hoping the tumblr crowd would buy the print edition? How would that negotiation go between his publicist and the publication - I mean, who would his publicist even be in this case, considering they can’t even write a simple press release? I can give him credit because I’ve been his fan and followed him for so long that I know what he’s capable of. Why’d you think anyone else would, especially someone who is in the business of selling their magazine to the public when there is no sign of him having an actual plan of building a career - and I don’t mean doing stuff here and there, but actually being on a path that leads to a healthy, successful career that would put him on the radar of the global audience and therefore featured in major publications.
