god i hope thats her name

so I’ve always sort of liked the idea that within the communion of saints there the Heavy Hitters, the Career Saints who are invoked widely and in situations of grave need—I’m talking your Catherines and Francises and Theresas, the Twelve Disciples and Michael; the Big Time Major League saints who intercede on behalf of so many, and so are always in conversation with the divine, case managers for the sick and dying and hurting and faithful of the world.

but that also means that there’s a bunch of saints hanging around who are just—minor holy women, lesser martyrs, incidental virgins, doctors of the church who never managed to find a publisher. They’re not prayed to very often, and rarely called on to manage the difficult cases; they have a lot of free time.

so what do you do, if you’re a saint with some free time on your hands? You answer all the not-quite-prayers, the “jesus, don’t turn red don’t turn red’ muttered by cab drivers and the “christ, can you just try it to see this from my point of view?” spat out by a furious girlfriend and all the “oh god please let me make this meeting in time” “please don’t let me fail” “I’m so tired I hope I can get home”

or maybe I just like the idea that every time you mutter “god, let me be okay” there’s some girl killed in 9th century for refusing to marry who falls into step beside you—and though no book or chronicle or living person remembers her name, she squints up at you and says with holy authority, “yeah, you’re going to be fine.”

Romanced Hancock and Danse! F! SS finding Fraternal Post 115. She's fallen for her companion but is reminded this is where she and Nate were going night the bombs fell. She breaks down and starts crying about life before the war. Let's get fluffy!

Paladin Danse: 
When Nora starts crying, it’s quiet. Her shoulders are hunched up and her back is to Danse while he looks around the main hall, doing a quick once over of the post before he turns to go back to her. “All clear, soldier,” he reassures her, and it’s then that he hears her crying over the crackling of the fire from the barrel in the center. Danse disengages his power armor pretty quickly after that, stepping out of it and approaching Nora from behind. She almost jumps when she feels his arms fold around her abdomen, but instead she just starts crying harder. She doesn’t mean to be, because she knows that was over 210 years ago, and it’s damn pointless to cry about it now, but she can’t help it. All she can imagine is Nate standing in front of the mirror and smiling back at her on the morning the bombs dropped. They were supposed to be here, and he was supposed to be smiling at her just like that again. But instead, he’s still in Vault 111, and she can’t stop crying. After a few minutes, she’s turned around to press her face into Danse’s shoulder, and he’s rubbing her back, repeating ‘it’s okay’ and similar phrases to her under his breath. As she manages to calm down, she whispers “I miss what we had. I miss the world- I miss him,” and as much as it hits Danse to hear it, he thinks he can understand, and he just nods before calmly suggesting that maybe they should go back to Sanctuary- Shaun’s probably waiting for her to get home.


Hancock: 
They’re just wandering along the streets when Nora’s gaze falls onto the building. It takes her a solid second before she recognizes why it looks familiar, and her stomach does a flip. By this point, Hancock’s backtracked a few steps upon noticing that Nora’s not by his side like usual, and he almost asks if she’s alright before he notices that he’s got this look on her face- almost like it’s scrunched up and she’s trying not to show just how clearly upset she is. Before he can say anything, she’s opening the door and lifting her gun, ready to clear out whatever the fuck’s been plaguing the place for the last two hundred years. After quite a bit of fighting and stimpaks, they’re in the main hall and Nora’s behind the podium. She looks like a mess as it is, but as soon as she croaks out “War– War never changes,” she’s got that look that just says she’s been through hell and back. When she steps away from it, Hancock’s already striding up to her to wrap her in a hug. She ducks into it, almost embarrassed when she starts crying, but he seems to be fine with it, defaulting to rubbing her back before he asks her if she wants to get out of there. It’s already cleared out, and they can come back again sometime if she wants, but she shakes her head. “All of that’s gone now,” she reassures him. “I miss him. God, I miss him, but it was a long time ago, and I have you now, right?” Hancock gives her this big crooked grin and wipes away her tears before he tugs back and grabs her hand. “What do you say we get out of here and grab a few drinks, then? There’s nothing wrong with relaxing.”

anonymous asked:

I know Rachel, Cassie and John Tomlin were known to be Christians. Was there anybody else who was also a Christian among the victims?

Yes, there were other Christian victims. Columbine was predominantly white and Christian. I can’t be 100% sure what their religions are of course, these are all my assumptions, but here is all the info I got.


Rachel Scott - She was a Christian.  I don’t think there needs to be any explanation. I think we all know that she was a Christian by now (lol).

Daniel Rohrbough - He was a Christian. His father, Brian Rohrbough, on multiple occasions has blamed the violence in today’s culture on the removal of God from the schools. I remember reading once somewhere a while ago that said “Daniel was a devout Christian.”

Dave Sanders - Im not too sure about Sanders. All I know was that his eulogy was read at the Trinity Christian Center by Pastor Bill Lower.

Kyle Velasquez -  Im pretty sure he was. He had a funeral service at St. James Presbyterian Church and on the inside of his coffin was written “In God’s care.”

Steven Curnow - I haven’t seen anything about his religion. He had a funeral at the Trinity Christian Center.

Cassie Bernall - Cassie was a christian. She was active in church youth programs and Bible study groups.

Isaiah Shoels - He most likely was. His gravestone has two symbols of hands praying, as well as a verse from the bible.

Matthew Kechter - I think he was a Christian as well. On his gravestone, there are symbols of crosses. Also, on his plaque at the Columbine Memorial, it says “Matthew, a gift from God” which leads me to think thats why his parents named him Matt.

Lauren Townsend - She was a Christian. She attended the masses at Southern Gables Evangelical Free Church.

John Tomlin - John was a Christian. John would lay his bible open on the dashboard of his truck, hoping someone would see it and bring them closer to God.

Kelly Fleming - Kelly was a Christian. Her funeral was held at St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church with Daniel Mauser. Her gravestone has a huge angel on it and Inside her casket has two crosses, which really makes me think she was a Christian. Also, recall her mother’s angel experience.

Daniel Mauser - Daniel was a Christian. You can see pictures of his baptism and first communion here. There are also pictures of him celebrating Easter here and Christmas (At 3:10) with his family.

Corey Depooter - I think Corey was a Jehovah’s Witness. His mother once said “I pray all the time. I constantly talk to Jehovah and ask him for direction. And I ask Jehovah to give (Corey) a kiss on the cheek.” “It is prayers that make us strong.”  However he did have a funeral at the Trinity Christian Center.

I'm starting to accept that I'm polyamorous (thank god my girlfriend is too) and I'm really getting confused because basically my thoughts on dating someone else with the babe are basically "Someone else to love on and cuddle with and call cute pet names; that sounds really nice" and I'm not sure if that's normal or anything? I love the babe and being in a relationship with just her is fantastic, but I think it would also be fantastic if we added another partner someday.

Hey anon, is that normal? Well shit I should hope so, that sounds adorable! It’s totally one of my favourite feelings, humans are social creatures by nature and cuddling and being affectionate can be fun. As long as everyone’s happy and on the same page I don’t see any reason to feel uncomfortable. Enjoy the cuddle puddle! 😋

—-  omg i’ve literally ruined the beautiful cpsd that this was i’m so ashamed of myself but ???? i had to get the bulgarian aesthetic in here. but anyways to the point, i’ve seen a lot of masterlists with latino, greek etc names so i was like why not make a bulgarian names masterlists?? under the cut you’ll be able to find both female & male names along with a few surnames you could match together. i promise you some of the names are cute, and some aren’t all that different from english names but it could give your character that lil bit of diversity ! hope you enjoy & also credit to rptprincess​ for the psd that a completely ruined smh : ~(

I think if he’s gonna zero in on one, he’s gonna zero in sort of by accident and he’s gonna be not the one zeroing in first, and then he’ll just stay with her. I think he’s one of those, like an eagle. I think once they start flying together they’re gonna always fly together.

Norman Reedus on Daryl Dixon falling in love. [x
(The original question is about C@rol but he never mentions her by name and just, this quote is just…) 

the role of religion in the stark girls storylines is something of an anti parallel. the gods are surprisingly active players in arya’s story while they’re silent in sansa’s. symbolically; this could be reflected from the very beginning by the status of their direwolves since many believe them to be gifts from the old gods. arya might be separated from her wolf but that connection is still alive. 

in her own words: sansa favors the seven. she’s associated with them more too probably bc its a much more ~civilized~ religion compared to the old gods. she has a poignant prayer scene in the sept where she sings for mercy (which might’ve worked on sandor) but we never see her seriously praying to the olds gods. she does meet with dontos there but thats all it really is; a private place to talk. theres no divine intervention. this trend follows her to the eyrie where there’s an emphasis on the lack of gods. it has no godswood, the sept is empty, and no prayers are answered. theres no strong religious influence in sansa’s story at this point. her training is political and in the game of thrones the goal is to collect titles and lands. littlefinger tells sansa if she follows his shady ass plan he’ll bestow these gifts on her.

arya has a complicated relationship with the powers that be. she doubts their abilities and ultimately stops following her mothers gods completely. we never see her praying to the seven either but when she kneels in front of the heart tree and asks for guidance the gods answer. her wolf is deeply involved in this scene too. before the gods speak nymeria howls from far away. arya also credits them for returning needle to her among other things. its really not surprising arya is associated with these gods over the seven. they’re dark and wild. they’re also deeply connected to nature and support vengeance. this faith even has a history of human sacrifice and its followers are known as savages. the old gods are hungry for blood too. but they can’t take root in braavos anymore than they can the eyrie. despite this their presence is felt in arya’s pov. the old gods are still watching arya in her dreams (again via her wolf) and answering her prayers. 

and religion is a huge driving force behind arya’s training. she’s living in braavos; a city where all gods are “honored” and the isle of gods is home to many religions. she’s serving in a temple; where people go to worship for their deaths or the deaths of others. the house of black and white is a place where prayers are actually answered too. the endgame here is to become a servant of the many faced god. this requires sacrifice. arya has to give up everything that makes her arya: her name, her possessions, her hopes and dreams, everything she loves and hates. this is another way in which the girls storylines are dramatically different. alayne is a temporary identity to hide sansa while littlefinger schemes ways to gain power through her name but arya is expected to give up hers forever in exchange for skills she isnt even supposed to use for her own benefit……..i mean she will eventually but thats besides the point lol

The scenes with that cat and skunk cartoon couldn't even be dismissed as mixed messages. Every time the cat saw the skunk she would run, every time he grabbed her and forced her to kiss him she'd literally fight, hiss and struggle to get away then run even faster, sometimes visibly animated having actual panic attacks, crying, or hiding. Looking back that was a horrifying cartoon. She never spoke, he did, her character had no name, his did. God I hope that's not still on tv.

ok so my past eating disorder has made it nearly impossible for my fiancé to get me pregnant. However, I'm currently in recovery because after many tries, it worked. Last week, we found out that it's a girl. If it's born(the doctor tells us that miscarriage is very likely), we're naming her Maja bc you inspired me to seek medical help for my depression, which is where I met my fiancé. I hope that's alright with you

Oh my god I’m crying…. I don’t know what to say! I wish you all the best with your pregnancy and I really really hope things turn out. I’m super happy things are getting better, and if you’re being serious then I am so thankful for this privilege x
