If you listen to Guns ‘N Roses’ "Estranged",
“November Rain”, “Civil War”, “Knockin’ on Heavens Door”, and “Don’t
Cry” in that particular order, you’re bound to get into one hell of an
when the heavens had decided the rain down the shattered souls of the gods, there had been an unimaginable amount of beauty fallen across the earth; in a way that was indescribable.
like fairies in the wind, the pieces of the gods had taken off and forever merged themselves across the globe and into the girls who would one day grow up to be powerful, beautiful, and heavenly.
zeus dances in the heart of a crowd; music blasting through the fields and voices drowning out her emotions until it was all intangible. she’s carefree and having the time of her life, a thin layer of sweat coating her skin. but the air is humid and it’s attracting electricity— static crackling in wavelengths. and all of a sudden, zeus just breaks into hysterics because there are too many things racing through her mind, too many things she wants to forget; her regrets, her sorrows, and her guilt. she’s angry, she’s tired, and she’s unpredictable. her eyes dart in all different directions and there’s this booming thunder in her stomach; the air sputtering in sync with her pulse. and it’s heartbreaking for zeus’ friends to see her like this, because the facade of being wise and strong just falls beneath her, like the weight across her shoulder was too unbearable. but they pick her back, they rise and aid her so she can lead again, because she is fierce, imposing, and made to be a ruler.
poseidon rakes the world in need for more. the beauty she has within herself is not enough for her, and she searches and searches for something she will never have. constantly changing, her eyes flicker colors in exchange with the emotions she’s feeling, a temper so hard to calm like the raging storms of the sea. her mood swings differentiate into so many unexpected personalities yet each and every one of them are brilliant all the same— poseidon, like the god himself, is terrifying yet breathtaking. a girl who holds a piece of poseidon within her will eternally wish that she has more in her hands than she can bear. revenge always sits at the tip of their tongue; and her words so sharp they could part the ocean. playful winks and side smirks are all held dear to poseidon’s heart, but a sneer and a glare are her signatures. she hopes for a day when the world will crumble under her touch, because the waters is already hers.
hades has tired eyes and a tired soul, and she’s just ready for everything to be over with. the days she spends inside are what makes her happy, the time with her other friends in front of a screen, across the world. hades has a stubbornness incomparable to anyone else’s, and the emotions of others have absolutely no effect on her her— because she knows that she comes first. she has put herself through hell and back, and some days the dizziness of anger and frustration never goes away. but since she is suffering, everyone else around her too must suffer along with her. she is symbolic in a way that she should be feared, but there’s this impeccable beauty around her that causes you to stay close. hades is simply mesmerizing. the burning fire in her eyes and the brush of cold skin that makes you wonder if she really is part of your world. she sinks her claws into unsuspecting hearts, unmoved by their prayers or pleas for mercy. she holds them near, and never lets them go.
and this had only been the the big three—
not even half of the olympians. there were hundreds, thousands, of other gods and goddesses amongst the stars who had spilled their light upon the girls of earth. and now, because they had been touched by ethereal and heavenly powers, they would never be the same. who had rained stardust in your veins?
No matter how horribly your day is going, it’s pretty much a guarantee that Jamie Fraser’s is going worse. If spending the past few weeks aboard the Artemis sailing towards Jamaica with an unruly crew to find his captured nephew wasn’t stressful enough, Jamie now has to deal with Claire being held hostage by the captain of a passing British ship.We last saw Claire willingly step off the Artemis and onto the Porpoise to put her medical prowess to good use and help the British crew contain a typhoid outbreak. But, of course, nothing ever goes according to plan on Outlander, and the Porpoise sailed off without letting Claire return to her husband.
In this exclusive clip from Sunday’s upcoming episode, Jamie discovers that Captain Raines knew the Porpoise crew intended to hold Claire against her will—and naturally, Jaime isn’t thrilled. Captain Raines adds insult to injury when he tells Jaime, “I have more than your wife to think about, Mr. Fraser.” Guns and knives are drawn and it’s all rather stress inducing.
Considering Jamie’s only options are to jump overboard or continue with Captain Raines until they reach Jamaica, tensions will no doubt be high while Jamie and Claire wait to reunite for what feels like the millionth time. Don’t miss this week’s episode when Outlander airs at 8 p.m. ET on Starz.
Where have all the good men gone And where are all the gods? Where’s the streetwise Hercules to fight the rising odds? Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed? Late at night I toss and I turn And I dream of what I need (x)
So, if you’re like me, maybe you have trouble sleeping at night because right when you lay down your mind just starts rolling with conversations that aren’t important. I know that this is quite normal, but on my worse nights this becomes intrusive thoughts - those that are unpleasant, harmful or frightening. I have a specific phobia, and when I can’t sleep my mind directs all of its attention to this, which causes anxiety attacks and insomnia.
To help deal with this I’ve used a pretty simple visualization routine.
✨ Pick your fav fictional character
✨Imagine them in your mind’s eye fighting off/yelling at/etc. your intrusive thoughts
✨Choose or create a specific “powerful” attack to seal the thoughts away and imagine your character using it
✨When you start to feel thoughts creeping back in remind yourself they are gone and visualize your character fending them off.
For example, my personal choice is Arturia Pendragon from the Fate series.
Her signature move is to raise Excalibur to the heavens and rain down a white light of power that banishes all evil. When I start to feel my mind wandering I repeat to myself “it is gone” and keep the image of Arturia in my mind a little longer until I fall asleep.
You can think of this as a very minor summoning of a guardian as well, and I find that after a few times of doing this your thought form can act on its own as it knows the routine.

Those little moments, when golden light pours through your window and illuminates the room, when the fog below the highway creates a sea of whirling grey, when her eyes open after laughing and the whole world stops for an instant. As if shards of heaven rained down to make these little things of perfection.
