Example #5: This is an example that has been largely and very sadly glossed over either due to paying attention to Leo/Raph bonding or getting after Donnie for his earlier concerns of April being alone with Casey and the ‘chinchilla’ comment. So in the third act of ‘Within the Woods’ Donnie, Mikey, April, and Casey witness The Creep drain Raph of his mutagen and are helpless to do anything about it. Donnie is absolutely horrified. Look at the first pic, you can see the horror in his eyes. When you watch the episode, you hear Donnie repeatedly say no before calling out Raph’s name in complete and utter horror. Then Raph’s a plant and while Mikey flips out, Donnie is still and just keeps looking at his now plantitized brother, just like he did with injured Leo.

Speaking of Leo, when they all hear Leo cry out to lure The Creep out, it gets Donnie to lift his head up. He realizes that Leo came, but he also knows that Leo is in no shape to fight and his condition could get worst. Plus he has now way of knowing if the cries for help were real or not, so that scares him. Listen when he says Leo’s name, he’s scared for him. He doesn’t want anything worse to happen to his big brother, especially now that they lost Raph. Luckily Leo lasts and gets them all freed, but until then Donnie was filled with fear and concern.

Then we get the ending. Everyone glosses over this part and it makes me super sad. So Donnie thinks that he can maybe restore Raph, but as Leo questions this Donnie admits that he isn’t for sure if he can. You can see that doubt and worry on his face. He pretty much failed to help Leo and his mutagen medicine caused The Creep to happen and caused Raph to get turned into a plant. In essence, all of this was his fault. Then in the first pic int he fourth row, you still see the worry on Donnie’s face. He only perks up once Raph’s eyes are fully open and it’s clear that he’s back to himself and you can SEE the relief in his expression. April then informs Raph that Donnie spent the entire night working to save him. The second that she mentioned Leo though, everyone forgot about this. Yes it was super sweet that Leo returned Raph the favor by never leaving his side, but Leo just sat there while Donnie actually worked to fix the problem. He spend an entire night to save his brother with no sleep or breaks in between. He only had an old IV to work with and manged to use it to restore Raph to himself. 

It really upsets ,e that everyone, both in canon and out, forgot about this and Donnie does this kind of thing ALL THE TIME. But no, we gotta get after him because he was afraid of April and Casey making out which maybe it was inappropriate at the time, but other than the chinchilla comment once Raph got found, all of his attention went onto him. He worked all night to save Raph even when he wasn’t sure if there was anything that he could do and everyone forgot all about it. Because apparently Donnie can only be defined by his love for April.

English comforts and American luxuries, French dinners and German waiters, are everywhere at the service of wealth. Wherever there is plenty of sports, good air for invalids, or good markets for merchandise, good hotels will be found. The watchful eye of capital, which knows no national prejudices, is always looking for opportunities, and the taste for travel grows with the facilities. Switzerland was the first playground of Europe. The world is now covered in playgrounds, to which active idlers and weary money-makers flock in obedience to the varying fashions of smart society, of sport, or of medical prescription. The African desert, Kashmir, California, Japan, the Canary Islands, Bermuda, the isles of Greece, Uganda, British Columbia, are not too remote for the modern globe-trotter. The commercial traveller is ubiquitous; and ‘our correspondent’ pursues wars and rumors of wars as keenly as the hunter tracks his quarry.

Francis Wrigley Hirst, editor of The Economist, 1913. (Quoted in 1913: The World before the Great War by Charles Emmerson.)

The word “tourist” is first attested in 1772, the heyday of the Grand Tour, the rite of passage where the sons of the European upper class would bum about Europe to get themselves a liberal education.


Did I read too much into that last song? “The loveliest lies of all”…. Was it all a lie? Is it over? I- I don’t know ;_;
And what was with the eyes watching them? Please tell me there’s more TT^TT

we were lost at sea once
you and me
we were lost in the twisting waves of ourselves
we were stuck in a foreign inescapable nowhere
we were lost
you and me

the sun was beating down on our newly laid skin
our eyes burned as we watched life set and rise
we were lost but we were not alone
we were lost but we were never lonely
this ocean was always carrying us somewhere
you and me
lost but together

in the years it took us to reach shore
we had already found comfort in the nowhere
found home in the inescapable ocean
had learned that solace was not always a bad thing
we were not lost.
not anymore.

“Hey boy.” Abel patted Spot’s head. “Mind if I steal the pretty girl away for awhile?” Spot seemed to understand and stood to the side, keeping a watchful eye on the pair. “Seems you have a fan.”

“Two maybe,” Snowbelle grinned. “I am counting you as well.”

“Oh good, I thought you were going to say Fury or something. Then I’d be in trouble. We’re already behind him by a long shot.”

“Are you?” Snowbelle asked. “Do not doubt yourself Mr. Abel. You are very kind and compassionate. I like you very much.”

“Aww man, you;re making me feel even worse for losing this challenge. I could use that date with you,” He said.

“You are not missing much. My last date did not go as planned. You are better off home anyway.” She shrugged.

“See? You’re just going on the date with the wrong people. I am much more fun.”

“Yes? Then show me next week, if you are still here.”

“Aye aye captain.” Spot stood by his feet, staring up at him impatiently. “Ok, ok fine. You can have your bachelorette back. I’ll talk to you soon Snow?”

“Yes, please.”

“Quiet Me”

 His eyes were wild, feral gold, and the angry snarling was audible even through the black leather covering the lower half of his face. Boot tracks, crimson and glistening, marred the polished floorboards, and one sai flashed out, jabbing point-first into the wall as the Fox growled aloud. 

  Over and over, he stabbed the wall, raking at the cheerful pale yellow wallpaper and leaving shining red smudges against the pale pine. All of his sounds were incoherent and rising in pitch. A glass shattered against the far wall, but the redhead standing in the doorway didn’t flinch. 

  Moving slowly, Aria walked towards the Fox, her eyes violet and watchful. Without a word to him, the mesmer settled onto the floor and folded her legs before putting her arms up to him. “Come here, love,” Aria said softly. 

  The sai clattered to the floor as the Fox turned, and he fell into the mesmer’s arms. Blood stained the pale blue of her gown, but Aria only wound her arms about him and drew his head down to her lap as she bent over him and began to murmur softly.

Never Leave.

you can take the girl out of the beach.
but watch her hair move like the ocean.
watch her eyes glow like the sun.
watch her presence blow like the wind.
watch her stand tall like the palm trees.
and feel her skin soft as sand.

the beach never leaves her.


These are seriously my favorite cosplay videos, not only because of the video quality, but I also can’t recommend them enough because the music they use is always top notch A+

This is my favorite song of the bunch so far.
