Love the idea of Red being jealous of Alan LOL. (Would Alan be jelly too?)

I think Alan would have the time of his life provoking Red, to be honest. Always making double entendres about Liz, referencing their shared past and generally going out of his way to make everything sound extra lascivious and dirty, constantly shooting Red ‘you know what I mean wink wink’ glances behind Liz’s back while touching her elbow or leaning in a bit too close.

And anytime he’d get too close to getting shot, he’d hide behind Liz and tattle on Red. Liz usually just heaves an exasperated sigh and tells them to ‘play nice, boys’

I believe that things can be destined.

I believe our souls are here to do specific things, to experience specific things, to grow, learn, evolve.

I believe that we know what we’re getting into when we come to this existence.

I believe we have free will, that if we don’t choose what we should, the universe brings us back to it, and this free will can actually cause us to miss the lesson sometimes.

My soul knows what is fulfilling, rewarding…I could feel what my purpose was as a hospice nurse, directly taking care of patients. Absolutely it’s hard, but it’s the only job I’ve ever had that I connected with so strongly on a spiritual level. It is what I should be doing. Where I’m doing it is amazing. The people I work with second to none.

As hard as it was to tell my boss about my decision to step down from my current position, my excitement supersedes any other emotion. She was supportive and understanding. I haven’t yet told my counterpart and I know she’ll be crushed, but she will completely get why.

That’s what makes this place is so incredible. We share that heart for what we do. Our mission.

So I have the vocational aspect of my existence on track. I’m working on the personal.

compulsively hate ships that happen out of nowhere, in first episodes, without buildup, ships in which “I love you”, “always” are said after five convarsations, girls who are all melodramatic over guy whom they know for a month, guys who choose girl whom they know for two weeks over family/friends/everybody.

  • Worf: Captain, I must choose another cha'DIch. I would like your permission to ask one of the crew.
  • Picard: Well of course, Lieutenant. Choose whomever you wish.
  • Worf: Then I would ask you to stand with me. You may refuse with no dishonour.
  • Picard: Thank you, Lieutenant. I appreciate the gesture, but I know that there are stronger and younger men from whom to choose.
  • Worf: I can think of no one I would rather have at my side.
  • Picard: [Klingon] I accept.

Going into Birthright relatively blind, mostly for the cast. I need advice choosing who to put my male Avatar with :0 So far I’m on Chapter 7 and am thinking of Felicia because she’s adorable and sticks with you even after you leave. Then there’s also Hana whom I have an attachment to via Heroes, same with Kagero whose my favourite of the girls in Heroes that I’ve gotten. Trying to avoid Azura tho, people kinda ruined that ship for me…

Anyone got advice? I just want a cute/funny ship without missing out on characters in upcoming chapters ;n;

Hello Mrs. Elani. I was wondering about daily rituals. i actually don't know what to do for morning and evening rituals. Which gods should I honor upon rising in the morning and before retiring for the night? I've never really found any elaboration on daily ritual in Hellenismos, and was wondering if you could help, thank you.

Errr… I can give you mine…? Which Theoi you choose to worship as part of your household practice is entirely up to you, however. These are the Theoi I have built kharis with or whom I think influence the cycles of day and night. These are the Theoi I feel comfortable worshipping daily. Who those are to you is a matter of personal preference.

I don't know but in my opinion it's over for Bernie, he should drop out now. I support him so much, but right now Hillary has more voters, and she has a better chance of winning. Right now Donald Trump is preparing a war against Hillary, and she needs to be ready for that, she has to focus on Trump, not Bernie.

Hillary Clinton can focus on whom she chooses. If she believes she’s already won, she’ll pay no mind to Bernie or his campaign, but it isn’t Bernie’s job to make the road easier for her by dropping out. Though his being in the race is, without a doubt, making Hillary a better candidate. Just take the fact that she basically changed her motto from “I’m with her” to “she’s with us” because Bernie forced her to focus on the people. He is going to finish this race and do so with dignity, and he is going to show America and the Democratic Party what the American people are demanding.
