god bless me and my will to start always new projects lol

Star Trek: DS9 Notes - S7, Vol. 3

There are technically six episode’s worth of reacts in here, but really four. You will see. And this set includes a few eps with lukewarm recommendations, but hey I still had a pretty great time here! It’s a good show, guys.

7x09 ‘Covenant’
- are they all gonna sit around and come up with what religion Odo should join, oh my god. Julian’s pitch for Klingon faith is literally: “He’d get to eat the hearts of his enemies.” compelling.
- Kira: “When I contacted the university they said you were on a spiritual retreat?”
  literally this Vedek: “Oh you know me, always searching for answers.” I am lol.
- wait, Brother Vedek what the fuck did you just give her! you knew it was going to do that!!!
- you know, it is rather a shame that Dukat ended up becoming this. there were moments of true brilliance with this character, along the way.
- it weirds me out that the station is tilted in this reality
- oh wait it’s EMPOK NOR, that’s the abandoned one that O’Brien led that salvage mission to where Garak touched the Alien goo and went space mad. OMG SO THIS IS REAL. oh fuck.
- I mean he did become a vessel for a Pah Wraith that one time, this is true
- Dukat is always claiming other people are truly responsible for shit he did, so it figures that eventually he would blame THE ACTUAL BAJORAN PROPHETS for his Bajoran Occupation
- ugh

this is a good look

- Dukat wants Nerys to grow used to this as her home, holy what
- Dukat gives people permission to have children, are you—???

Mohamed Soltan’s 100 day report in Tora Prison, Egypt. 

Salams All,

I pray this reaches you all in the best of health and increasing Iman. I had started writing back some of you who wrote me, but 6 letters got confiscated during the last cell search. So I’m writing this the night before my visit so I can get it out before it gets taken away. I was very moved and touched by your words wallahi. I feel so blessed to have such amazing family and friends that love me, pray for me, and remember me. I’m sure I don’t deserve it, but I thank Allah that I have people like you in my life, your prayers is what is getting me through my time here wallahi. So please keep them coming 

Today was the 100th day of being locked up so I decided to give you guys a little idea about what the past 100 days have been like, so here I go.

o Promised not to shed a tear outside of prayer until I get out.

The End.

With all that being said, I’d like to stress that these 100 days and counting of being isolated from the outside world has given me so much insight on life and has been a bittersweet blessing, that I know God will end when I am done learning/realizing whatever it is he needs me to achieve to be a better contribution to the world inshAllah. I’m also certain that it’s in His wisdom that I’m not outside messing up something, rather. All I know is, Allah’s plan for me is much better than anything I have planned for myself and I am fully content with everything Allah has given me.

I miss all of you so much, I appreciate you so much, and I love and pray for you daily. InshAllah we should meet soon, in a free Egypt, a free Middle East, and a free World. Keep the duaas coming, and until next time inshAllah. Salaams

Much Love,

Mohamed Soltan
