“How can you possibly know that? You have too much faith in people, Scott,” Stiles said accusatorily with his arms crossed indignantly. Scott just smiled.

“And you don’t have enough faith in people.”

New neighbors moved in the big house at the end of the street and Scott has a little something for one of them. On the contrary, Stiles got a little bit of hatred for one of them.
All that and Scott getting bitten and turned into a werewolf the night after they met said neighbors for the first time. And, of course, Stiles is the one with enough head on his shoulders to actually deal with all of it and come to the right conclusions.

AU where the characters of Teen Wolf are the characters from Pride and Prejudice.  Stiles is Elizabeth, Derek is Darcy, Scott is Bingley, Kira is Jane, and Peter is Lady Catherine.  :D  So basically, just enjoy and let your teen fantasies run wild!

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single alpha in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a mate.  

Whether or not Derek Hale felt that way was hardly a concern to the neighborhood — the very fact of his arrival was enough that the surrounding families seemed to consider him the rightful property of one or another of their eligible sons and daughters.  That was, of course, before they met the man.

Pride and Prejudice by lheadley 

(123,828 I Not Rated I Complete)  *sterek, scisaac

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single werewolf in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a mate.”

A Sterek (and Scisaac) based parody of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice”. Written in the voice of Jane Austen, not the voice of Teen Wolf, and following the original text very closely. Bascially names and pronouns are changed, and there is the normal strategic product placement associated withTeen Wolf, but otherwise this is Austen. It is remarkable how little the characters have to change to fit with the Austen novel - although Lydia Martin and Melissa McCall get a bit of a rough deal in the translation. Scott, Isaac, Stiles and Derek match the character types very well, however - personality traits have not changed that much over the centuries. January 2013 marks the 200 year anniversary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice.

You know.

It’s odd that I’m agnostic. I believe in a sort of faith, in a way, and I have all the respect in the world for people who have spiritual faith.

I just…maybe if God or Gods exist, my lot in life is to be the one who does what he can to be good, regardless of my own assurance of their existence.

If, when I die, I meet some afterlife, I’d like to go knowing I did what I can here to make this world a kinder place. If whatever is after has a place for me because of that; all the better. 

If not, then that’s, honestly speaking, their loss. 

People: But imagine if Victor leaves Yuri!! Or one of them dies!!! Or one of them can’t go back to one of their countries because homophobia!!! Imagine the ANGST and the DRAMA and the-

2018 Netflix Original Series: Grounders

250 years after a Nuclear War managed to destroy all lands and leave behind only a small amount of survivors, a civilization was built. From the old world came knowledge to those living in the new. They have sets of laws, religions, and teachings. Their names have been passed down kin after kin since the war.

They know war harsher than most do as well, and a new one is set to come. There has been chaos since the last one while the current Commander, the one who everyone bows to, has been unable to control it. This puts the faith her people as well as fellow ambassadors have in her in jeapordy. With newer clans and armies forming, and very little time till Ascension Day, where a new Commander shall be tested based on their knowledge of each clans religions, laws and people to rule, war is almost inevitable.

Only thing is, this isn’t the war that they should be worried about. Bigger things will come into their lives that they will not be able to understand. Confusion incites fear, fear incites violence.

FAVORITE BISEXUALS | Raúl Esparza

“I do not regret being who I am, being as open as I’ve been. And I am proud of myself for not apologizing for it. I don’t fit into any of the boxes that so many petty-minded little motherfuckers love to put me in, and I don’t really care.”

This quote was giving to me from my meditation teacher Betty Jones…

This is a good framing for where we find ourselves and how we should think about this time we are living in.

“Banish the word ‘struggle’ from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. We are the ones we have been waiting for.” — Hopi elders

I did a search on the quote and found it in the body of a longer quote made by a Hopi elder in 2011. This is the quote in its entirety. Keep the faith and protect yo heart.

“You have been telling people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you
must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour. And there are
things to be considered… .
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for your leader.
Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, "This could be a
good time! There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and
swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on
to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer
greatly. Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let
go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes
open, and our heads above the water.
And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in
history, we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves. For
the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt.
The time of the one wolf is over. Gather yourselves!
Banish the word 'struggle’ from your attitude and your vocabulary. All
that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
Hopi Elders Prophesy
To my fellow swimmers:
here is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift,
that there are those who will be afraid,
who will try to hold on to the shore,
they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly.
Know that the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore,
push off into the middle of the river,
and keep our heads above water.
And I say see who is there with you and celebrate.
At this time in history we are to take nothing personally,
least of all ourselves, for the moment we do,
our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt.
The time of the lone wolf is over.
Gather yourselves.
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
For we are the ones we have been waiting for.”

This quote was carried on the same page.

“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do,
I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do.”
—Edward Everett Hale

anonymous asked:

How can you be a Christian when your religion has failed people like you?

perhaps you’re approaching this from the wrong way. my religion hasn’t failed me or my lgbt siblings of the faith. other people, however, have drastically failed my religion

Regarding the spoilers i just saw: i don’t think “lets end this” refers to the relationship. I think it refers to Victor being Yuri’s coach. They’ve been foreshadowing for a while that Yuri wanted to compete in the GPF and win with Victor as his rival, not his coach. Maybe Yuri doesn’t want to keep Victor apart from skating. Maybe he doesn’t do well in the GPF and doesn’t want to waste Victor’s time by coaching him (we know how Yuri is).

What i’m trying to say is calm down. I don’t think they would break up like a day after getting engaged. And i always believed that Victor and Yuri would compete against each other at some point.

Let’s have faith people.

ladies in film: elle woods (legally blonde)

“At the very first day at Harvard, a very wise professor quoted Aristotle, "the law is reason free from passion!” Well, no offence to Aristotle, but in my three years at Harvard. I have come to find: Passion is the key ingredient to the study and practice of law, and of life. It was for passion, courage of conviction, strong sense of self that we take our next step into the world. Remembering the first impressions are not always correct, you must always have faith in people, and most importantly you must always have faith in yourself.“

Dear 2017 me,

You will get better. Your life will change. Have patience. Things that are built quicker are destroyed just as soon.
This year you must take care of yourself and be careful to not give too much of yourself away. But don’t walk through life guarded, that’s never been your way.
Take the year a quarter at a time. Don’t plan for the whole year, you don’t know what life will be like 6 months from now.
Don’t focus too much on the planning because without execution, a plan is just a piece of paper.
You’re 20 now and that’s huge but don’t stress over trying to be ‘mature’ and adult like because you already are. Chasing bubbles doesn’t make you a kid, it makes you a person who knows how to chase happiness.
Get out of your house more. You need the fresh air, you need the sun. By now you’ve learnt, you don’t need to shy away from sunlight to love the night. You will always be a creature of the night with just a little bit of vampire obsession to make you creepy.
Snack. Don’t binge.
Study. You may not exactly be where you want to be right now but if you study hard enough you soon will.
You had learnt at a very young age that there’s no excellence without labour. You strive for excellence and hence you must labour.
Don’t write too many letters to people because the first letter is lovely, the second is cute, the third is ? If they aren’t the right person.
Have faith. Sometimes that’s the only thing you have left but it does wonders.
‘NOW’ is your 2017 key word.
Don’t wait to do things you really want to because if you wait long enough, you don’t want to do anything.

There are nice people and there are shitty people. Just because you’ve come across a bunch of shitty people all at once doesn’t mean nice people don’t exist. They do. And you will find them. But remember, all people are current assets. You’re the only fixed one. Invest more in yourself. There’s so much more I want to tell you but from now I want to do less of talking and more of doing. I know you will understand, at least I hope you do.
 Love,
 2016 me

Dear my never,

I know you’ve hit rock bottom. I know that I only made your life worse and because of me you’ve lost even the little faith in people you used to have. And if I told you to trust again, I know the exact things you would say to me:
“My grandfather was the only person who was ever there for me.”
“I’m never going to find a friend who will be there through my very worst.”
“I’m never going to fall in love with a girl again, they only break hearts.”
But please listen, and for one last time, trust me.

One day you’re going to find a girl who’s everything you’ve wanted. She’ll be your lover, your soul mate, and most importantly, the best friend you need. She’ll be beautiful and you won’t take your eyes off of her. She’ll understand you in every way I couldn’t. She’ll earn your trust and you’ll tell her every secret of your life that I didn’t deserve. She’ll have a little bit of me, and a lot more of her. You’ll love every inch of her and more. She’ll cross skies and go against all odds and defy the universe to be one with you. You found true love in me, and you’ll find eternal love in her. I know you think I shattered your heart mercilessly and it’s irreparable now, but don’t lose hope just yet; you’ll find her, your fearless lover.

And that’s what I want, for you to find her, to find happiness. And you will. I’m not very sure about myself, but I am of you.

But I have one last thing to say to you:

You were my first real love, and nobody can love you as fiercely, and as gently as I did.
Nobody can love you as much as I did.
Nobody.

Signed,
Yours truly.

Here’s a tip for Christmas: having political discussions with people who aren’t interested in having a good faith discussion does nothing but raise your blood pressure and ruin your day. A lot of people have no interest in a good faith discussion, and about half of your family probably qualifies.

You process this time, this moment, this memory, and realize how much has been lost through this journey, but how much is worth saving, how much is worth fighting for. 

The story will continue… Have hope, have faith, and we’ll see what transpires.
