random list of my favourite characters — ragnar lothbrok (vikings)

“It gladdens me to know that Odin prepares for a feast. Soon I shall be drinking ale from curved horns. This hero that comes into Valhalla does not lament his death! I shall not enter Odin’s hall with fear. There I shall wait for my sons to join me. And when they do, I will bask in their tales of triumph. The Aesir will welcome me! My death comes without apology! And I welcome the Valkyries to summon me home!”

"Star Wars is for 12 Year Olds"

I loved the Star Wars Celebration panel. I especially loved seeing both Hayden Christensen and George Lucas get the love and support they deserve. When George Lucas was talking about how he saw kids near the set when he was filming Attack of the Clones, he said he did it for the kids who loved them, and it got me thinking. When the prequels were made they got a lot of hate back in that time. Some would argue it’s justified but I grew up, not hating the films, but enjoying them. I feel like the previous generation that grew up with the original trilogy and enjoyed them are just like kids, like me, who grew up with the prequels. Now I’ve seen the originals and the prequels multiple times, and while I can admit both had their corny moments, I still loved them. The old generation went in and many (not saying all) bashed it. The children who enjoyed it, probably didn’t get heard by those receiving all the hate. It just gladdened me to see that those children’s voices are being heard now. We can finally speak to Hayden and George Lucas, and say “We are the children you did it for, and we love and appreciate all you’ve done for us.”

Logic and the psychology of mistakes

Let me start by saying I know nothing I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT PSYCHOLOGY! and I was technical at work when I wrote this so no research went into it, those of you who do know about psychology please take it easy on me.

This came about because I a) didn’t want Logic to be completely clueless about feelings, b) i wanted Logic to have a bond between each side and c) Logicality first kiss. Also somehow I ended up with just a little more Morality angst but it all ends in fluff

Warnings: mentioned injury, guilt, feeling like a failure, made up psychology. let me know if I need to add anything.

Love gives life to the lifeless. Love lights a flame in the heart that is cold. Love brings hope to the hopeless and gladdens the hearts of the sorrowful. In the world of existence there is indeed no greater power than the power of love
—  Abdu’l-Bahá (1841 - 1922) Persian Bahai Teacher and Mystic

“It gladdens me to know that Baldr’s father (Odin) makes ready the benches for a banquet. Soon we shall be drinking ale from the curved horns. The champion who comes into Odin’s dwelling (Valhalla) does not lament his death. I shall not enter his hall with words of fear upon my lips. The Æsir will welcome me. Death comes without lamenting. Eager am I to depart. The Dísir summon me home, those whom Odin sends for me (Valkyries) from the halls of the Lord of Hosts. Gladly shall I drink ale in the high-seat with the Æsir. The days of my life are ended. I laugh as I die.”

Malia Tate x Werewolf!

Reader Requested by Anon

Warnings: None
Word count: 550

A/N: I had to admit that I really liked this request since Peter’s currently trying to gain Malia’s trust in the series. 8D

“I don’t think you should see her!” Peter yelled after Malia as she walked faster through the woods. It was a shortcut towards your house that you’d showed her first time you two went on a date, but she would always find the way to you with the memory of your smell.

Birthday - EF - Leela Sitahal      Mon, March 6 .. greetings to our Leela ji with love on her birthday .. we wish you good health and happiness ever .. 


There is nothing more satisfying than a creation that speaks and enlightens the mind and soul. Music always did, but when you allow it to embrace the written word of the highest order, the soul gladdens, the body and mind vibrates, much like that ‘Phantom’ music hearing aid that emanates quality of immense gratifying measure. But sound systems can only reflect that which it is fed with, and the feeding has been the works and words of my Father. 

The works and writing of these works have always been derived from some personal feelings and emotions .. from stories that passed by in his life .. from the reality of his own bearing .. and from the experiences of his immense philosophy ..

Each expression is weighted and decorated with the brilliance of his thoughts, his choice of words, and more particularly, since we are immersed in the music of his works, his own tryst with the ‘saat sur’ . When we sit with the professionals in the order of music, they are amazed not just by the play of his poetic selection of words, but his acumen with the tones and tunes that he himself constructed and rendered ..

The tones are simple, just like his writing, sonorous and lasting .. 

His vast knowledge of the field of his choosing, his own principles and beliefs .. his strong revolutionary thinking and his lasting impressions through the dexterity of the prose he wrote through his autobiography, is phenomenal ..

Some day hopefully I shall be able to put across publicly what I express, and seek your indulgence ..

For the moment then give me the space to construct and reinvent him for you ..

LITERALLY EVERYTHING EVER WRITTEN BY THE TOLKIENS ABOUT THE PETTY-DWARVES

Here I gathered very single quote relevant to the Petty-Dwarves from Tolkien’s works! The only comments I added where to give context on the quote, so this oughta be an opinion-free resource for those wanting to know more about what little we have on the Petty-Dwarves in the available canon and semi-canon sources.

The order that follows it: 

  1. The Silmarillion
  2. The Unfinished Tales

Sentinel Wars (2/?)

I finally cleaned up Obi-Wan’s POV from the Star Wars / Sentinel crossover I started., so here it is!

Part 1 | Part 2:

Obi-Wan’s first coherent thought, when he realizes what’s just happened, is indignance - Plo never said it felt like this.  The Force is pushing at him, twining around him and Captain Rex, pulling them together in a manner not unlike the creation of a Force bond.  He feels awash in Rex’s emotions, drowning in his presence in the Force and hyper-aware of every point of contact between them.

(mobile users, there’s a cut here!)
