After the barn and the tragedies that follow, Beth needs masturbation—her nightly ritual of stress relief—more than ever. But when Hershel invites Rick’s group out of their campsite and into the house, Beth finds herself lacking the privacy she needs to take care of herself. Stressed, smothered, and tired as hell, Beth is close to her breaking point—close, that is, until the only group member to maintain a space of his own offers Beth his tent as a solution.

Jimmy attempts to make amends with Beth, and they both attend a shooting lesson that doesn’t go quite as planned.

Father Nix Oberon: It’s true isn’t it Ophelia! You’ve loved him and never me!

Ophelia: …

Father Nix Oberon: Please just stay! Both of you! I’m an old man…. Our children need guidance! Just stay here! Your son is bonding with his brother and sister right now! You can all stay! Please!

Maxims from Artemis

I just did a very intensive prayer with Her, and I received a lot of information from Her, so I want to post it!


Context: I started the prayer, asking for Her to help my S/O feel happier and more content with our current life situation.

“[You are not a woman]. I will not answer your prayers. I will give you the guidance you need to answer them yourself.”

  • Encourage her [’her’ in any of these means my S/O] more.
  • Help her love herself.
  • Help her be happy by herself.
  • Help her better herself.
  • Listen to her.
  • Serve her.
  • You both need to be more spiritual.
  • Be more independent.

“If you wanted love advice go to Aphrodite. This is life advice.”

  • Have faith.
  • Trust in the Theoi.
  • Trust in YOURSELF.
  • Have fun. Enjoy life. Enjoy youth.
  • Don’t grow up too quickly.
  • Explore your identities.
  • Stick up for yourself!
  • Accept that things will never be ideal, but you can always make things better. The Gods are on your side.
  • Stay optimistic. Stop worrying.

“I suppose this can be called advice for happiness.”

  • Love nature more.
  • Don’t spill wax.
  • Don’t insult the Gods. Serve them.
  • Treat her like a fucking Queen.
  • Take care of your children.
  • Fight anyone who wrongs Alexandrea [one of my children, who is disabled].
  • Fight oppression.
  • Take care of your candles.
  • Care for your pets.
  • Appreciate modern life.
  • Parents are not deserving of respect unless they earn it.
  • The patriarchy is shit.
  • Love is beautiful.
  • She really loves you and you really love her. That’s perfection in itself.

“Find a temple in your own home.”

“You only find true beauty when you look at it in the light of night.”

  • Takes notes.
  • Tell Thalia [a friend of mine who is an Artemis devotee] she’s a little punk.
  • Zeus is a little bit annoying, all fathers are.

“Be the better person. Help those in need even if they have wronged you entirely. Always. No excuses. The Gods value Xenia, not pride.”

“Don’t call away the Theoi. We call you away when your service is rested.”

  • Stay close to the altar.

“The Theoi will challenge you. You are held to Our standards.” 

“Your fate is up to you, but the Gods will support you through it all.”

IDK if you've already done this but can you recommend any reylo fics ? I really like slow burn but also fluff ... I need your guidance dusty !!

You know, I actually haven’t rec’d any fics before! Just a fair warning, my tastes tend towards the decidedly angsty side of things and I haven’t had much time to read fic (at all), but there are a couple I can rec.

Honeymoon by @i-am-thesenate
The smut in this story is A+ and the romance is really cute while pretty much staying true to the characters. There is an undercurrent of angst, but for the most part it comes off as pretty fluffy. This one is ongoing.

The Purest Place in the Galaxy by ClockworkCourier
One of the more popular long fics, but it’s honestly my favorite slow burn that isn’t completely depressing. It’s not really fluffy, but there is some nice humor involving force ghosts. This one is ongoing.

The Death of Kylo Ren by nymja
This one is the first in a series. It’s definitely slow burn and I love it, but just a warning it’s pretty angsty if you’re looking for fluff. Like, pretty angsty. This one is completed.

there may be something there that wasn’t there before. by AquaWolfGirl
a slow burn Beauty and the Beast au. I’m seriously in love with this one right now, but as the subject matter implies, it’s not really fluffy. This one is ongoing.

me, reading the bible: merlin this doesnt say anything about the moral goodness or badness of having your genitalia swapped out to fuck your wife who is fucking your best knight and i need urgent guidance

man, what the hell

why is Splinter only visiting Leonardo. I get he needs guidance, but your other sons need guidance too Splinter. And closure and love, I’m sure they’d like to see you.

either 1) leonardo is hallucinating or 2) splinter is a jerk

  • Kara: Cat texted me!
  • Kara: What do I say?!?
  • Kara: Should I ask when she's coming back?
  • Kara: Wait no that'll sound desperate she just left
  • Kara: I miss you?
  • Kara: No no no too soon
  • Kara: I need your guidance!
  • Kara: NO! I need to show her I can do this without her
  • Kara: Am talking too long to replY?
  • Kara: What if she gets mad that i don't answer her back immediately?
  • Kara: Ok ok I'll just text back hello
  • Kara: WHAT DO I DO NOW?? ALEX !!!

Hii I was recently diagnosed with ADD (I'm 16 yr old girl) and my doctor prescribed me to 10mg adderall take two a day and after being on it for a month I don't see literally any difference I don't think it has improved my cognitive abilities I don't expect it to do some magic or anything I do take it and really try to focus and set myself to finish my HWs I have another apt soon I wanna tell him this but I'm scared he'll put me on something harsher especially when my parents don't even (1/2)

-believe in things like this and if it does harm me I will get the last of it but I really need some guidance and was wondering what’s your opinion / the symptoms I went to him for were lack of concentration/memory problems (2/2)

also (2/2) 16 yr old anon person although I don’t see improvements on the adderall I get all the symptoms I have huge loss of appetite I’ve lost almost 9 pounds since being on it I do get dizzy at times as well it super calms me

It sounds to me like amphetamine (the active ingredient in Adderall) might not be the best choice for you, since you’re having bad side effects and not really seeing any improvement. When you talk to your doctor, ask if you can try something like Concerta or Ritalin (methylphenidate), or even Strattera (non-stimulant). Be honest about your reactions here and tell him you want to try something else.



rule 63 kagami and kuroko meeting up at a cafe over the weekend ♥

(no kagami is not being rude, she’s texting the rest of seirin to see who’s up for some street basketball in the evening ヽ(゜∇゜)ノ )

And now, Grandfather, I ask you to bless
the white man.
He needs your wisdom, your guidance.
You see, for so long,
he has tried to destroy my people,
and only feels comfortable
when given power.
Bless them, show them the peace we understand;
teach them humility.
For I fear they will someday destroy themselves
and their children
as they have done so Mother Earth.
I plead, I cry.
After all, they are my brothers……
—  A Prayer for the White Man (Native American prayer)

i'm applying to vet tech school in the fall, so i feel like your reblog about bunny huggers came at the right time. any tips for my entrance short answer essay question about want to be a vet? obviously i don't want you to write my essay for me, and you don't know me, but since i thought "i love animals" would be fine, obviously i need some guidance. thanks! i love your blog.

Hello! Think about the reasons you want to get into vet med. Is it the science of medicine? Is the the variability of the job? Is it the challenge of not knowing what’s going to walk through the door? Everyone with an interest in vet med loves animals–otherwise we wouldn’t be in this field! Admissions don’t want to hear that you love animals because it is an obvious and unoriginal answer, and doesn’t really tell them anything about you. While I’m sure there are some differences between vet school/vet tech school essays, or even from the time I applied, the general principle is probably the same. I talked about the experiences that made me unique and contributed to my interest in vet med, as well as my relevant experiences that showed a clear dedication and specific area of interest (the prompt specifically asked about future career goals). Also, I had a whole paragraph that had nothing to do with vet med and just gave examples of my persistence and how I overcame challenges in my early childhood to become a better person. Think outside the box! Most people applying have very similar experiences, so try to include what’s unique about you. This is also not a time to be modest–don’t brag, but be proud of your accomplishments. If you’d like an example of a successful essay, feel free to PM me and I can share! It’s definitely not perfect but it got me into 3 schools :)

SB To Spoiled Girlfriend HELP!

Posting this again bcuz I made a mistake yesterday and I’m hoping to get answers from experienced ladies in the sugar bowl.

Ladies, I need your guidance. I’ve been reading your posts for months and have learned a lot that have helped me as a newbie SB.

Now I have a decision and I’m freakin out. So I have been seeing a few SD’s the last few months and one of them has asked me to become his girlfriend. I have only had three serious BF’s and I’m 24 so I’m not sure if I should do this. I like him but I don’t know what to do so here I am asking for advices and opinions from those who have been through this before.

What is the difference between a SB and a spoiled girlfriend? How did your relationship with your SD change after you became a SGF? Did you have to talk with your SD about what changes would happen once you became a SGF? Should I expect a higher allowance as a SGF?

How long were you SD/SB before you became a SGF? What made you decide to become a SGF instead of staying SB?

What is the difference for you between being a SGF and a vanilla relationship? How do I tell him that I want to be a SGF and not a vanilla GF?

Why should I become a SGF instead of staying as a SB? Any advantage you ladies have experienced? If I say no will I loose him as a SD?

I’m worried that I’m settling by becoming a SGF without seeing more POT’s out there. How many SD’s did you ladies have before you felt ready to be a SGF?

Once your a SGF can you still see other SD’s? I worry about having less money if I stopped seeing other SD’s. Its not cheap to live here in the Bay Area.

Any success and horror stories you ladies can share about becoming a SGF from SB?


“I am unfamiliar with this side of the process… No one may be listening. But I- I do need assistance. I have questions and there seem to be no answers.

I wouldn’t presume to ask for help if I weren’t desperate. I need help.

I am lost. I need your guidance.

Please, hear my prayer.”
