“Really, I propose that we should travel incognito, so as not to cause sensation.”
“And laughter." 

Guess what ? My tablet stopped working. But that wont stop me from drawing stuff ! Here’s Geralt’s Hansa from The Witcher books. It’s the Best Team. I especially love the fact that they are all still alive and happy.

I Love You

You are a Malfoy that doesn’t agree with your family’s beliefs and morals.

Warning: Battle of Hogwarts

A/N: I should probably take a break from writing Tom Holland imagines… so here. I’ve had this idea for a while now but I haven’t written it for some reason.

Also, I know we knew that the Malfoys didn’t really want to be Death Eaters when it came towards the end of the books, especially Draco it seemed like, but you have a stronger opinion and you always stand up for what you believe in, no matter who it is against.

======

“Draco!” You hear your father call, breaking the tense silence. “(Y/N)!” He soon calls after. All heads turn to either your brother who is standing on the stairs, or you who is standing with the Golden Trio and part of the Weasley family. 

You feel a few familiar gazes go upon you and you just hang your head.

“Draco… (Y/N).” You hear the plea in your father’s voice and the tears start to build up in your eyes.

“Draco, (Y/N).” Your mother’s soft voice call causing your head to slowly come up. “Come.” She commands, you swallow the lump in your throat. You turn your head and look up to be met with a watery pair of dark hazelnut eyes that you always easily get captured in.

The usual happy glimmer in his eyes is replaced with the dull pain of loose. His bright, orange hair that contrast with his bright smiling eyes is gone. In their place takes dusty, dirty hair and defeat.

You only look away when you hear the clack of shoes against the sharp pavement. All eyes follow your brother as he walks past all his peers to join the other side… the side that caused the destruction of their beloved school and the wizarding world.

“Oh, well done, Draco.” Voldemort praises him and wraps his arms around the boy. “Well done.” He lets go of the awkward hug and sends him to your parents.

“(Y/N).” Your mother calls to you, her arm slung around her son’s torso. Your eyes meet her pleading ones. You send her a frown before turning to look back up at George’s eyes. All the emotions from earlier are still there but the fear of loose is emitting the most.

George has already lost a bunch of loved ones during the battle today including his brother. And now he might lose the second most important person to him to the people who took the others away from him.

You start to cry as you turn your gaze back towards your family, especially when you see your brother mouth ‘please’. You just shake your head back and him, responding with a tearful ‘sorry’.

“I love you, George.” You confess, slipping your hand into his rough one.

“I love you, too, (Y/N).” He shakily whispers back, pulling you against his chest and wrapping his arms around you. “I love you so much.” He presses a kiss to your temple while tears flow down his cheeks.

You clutch onto George as you watch your parents give you a disappointed look and your brother gives you a sad one. As much as you love your family, the stuff that they did for the Dark Lord something you could never forgive.

Maybe in the future, you could see yourself reconnecting with Draco but for now, everything is still fresh.

The View, Gillian Anderson
  • Joy Behar: You know, before we get to the book I have to say to you, Gillian. You know, I said it to you on the break I'm a huge fan of "The Fall" which is on Netflix, you really should wat.. [watch it]*applause*. They love it! And you know, I mean, you play this sort of a hard-nosed, you know, she is a tough detective. But, for some reason, and maybe because you are so good, you manage to get that sensuality in there, that sexuality. Look at her!(pointing at the screen where they are showing Stella Gibson) She is as hot as a pistol in this (Gillian is laughing at this point) but she solves the crimes. How did you... how did you manage all that?
  • Gillian Anderson: She is a woman. We are all complicated. Am I right?
  • -The View, ABC, 3/13/2017
I’d never really fallen in love with a boy who loved me back at the same time. I’d never flirted with someone I barely knew, but I could already feel the energy between us. We clicked as if we belonged together and I always want to be close to you. You messed up my mind and I don’t know how we should go on.
It feels so right to be next to you, but I thought I belonged to someone else.
—  excerpt from a book I’ll never write #5
  • Hermione: Go away. I feel like dying.
  • Draco: No fair maiden should die alone. Shall I read to you in your final moments? What story would you like?
  • Hermione: How about the story of the idiotic Slytherin who won't leave the Gryffindor alone?
  • Draco: Oh! I love that story! It has such a happy ending, too—why, the Gryffindor was really feigning her illness in order to get the Slytherin's attention! Who would have guessed it? Such a clever girl. And the bedroom scene is so lovely—it's worth reading through all of their ceaseless banter!
Just a Little More Time

I blame @regina206 for this…and the fact that I love “Book of Life” and the songs in it…

This is just a like…suuuuper feelsy Rebelcaptain fic that kind of takes place at the end of Rogue One, so obviously HUGE spoiler alert for this!

Also, you really should listen to “Te Amo Y Más” while reading this, or at least while reading the song part. And the best part is it is actually Deigo Luna singing so that is actually how Cassian would sound if he sang! (bonus, you could also listen to the English version, both are lovely <33) Also, I have a headcanon that maybe Cassian’s mom sang this to him when he was a kid, or he heard his parents singing it to each other…it’s just like…his calming song…

Fic below the cut because spoilers are no fun for those who haven’t seen it!

Keep reading

anonymous asked:

rfa + v in a hunger games au where they are from the same district as mc? like would they form an alliance with mc, try to kill them like everyone else, etc?

okay but i really love this request even though i haven’t read the books is years oops hopefully this is fine

Zen

  • So he’s definitely the most athletic of the RFA, so he’s got that going for him
  • He would team up with you without hesitation considering he fell in love with MC on the first day in all the routes z e n keep yourself together
  • Anyway you should consider yourself hella lucky because he is willing to do anything to keep the two of you safe, even killing the other tributes
  • He would probably be one of the most likely to kill to keep you safe
  • I could even see him killing other tributes not out of self defense so you could get out of it quicker
  • If it were down to the two of you at the end, I think that he would sacrifice himself so you could live
  • He might be a little hesitant about it, but in the end he would do it 

Yoosung

  • Honestly he’s probably one of the first one’s to get killed even though that makes me so sad to say/think
  • But if he does make it past the cornucopia he is constantly worried
  • His tactic is to hide from everyone else and hope they all end up killing each other
  • I doubt he would form an alliance with you though, he doesn’t trust anyone, and if he didn’t know you at all before this he would probably think that you’re just tying to trick him and kill him later
  • Considering the environment that you’re in, you can’t really blame him
  • Even if he makes it past the cornucopia, I doubt he would last that long
  • Hiding will only get him so far, and he doesn’t have any survival skills

Jaehee

  • She’d definitely get farther that Yoosung, but she wouldn’t be in the last three
  • Imo she’d probably lose 6-4?
  • She’s non confrontational so as soon as it starts, she runs as far away as she can
  • She has pretty good self defense skills though so she could last a little while off of that alone isn’t it canon that she knows like karate or something else? but if it isn’t it should be
  • So if you ask her to team up with you, she’d definitely be hesitant, but after a little bit of thinking she decides to trust you
  • Especially if you did something to win her trust, like saving her from someone else

Jumin

  • Honestly? Like Yoosung, I could see him being one of the first one’s to die
  • But if he does make it past the cornucopia, he would last two days at most
  • He has no survival skills and I doubt he’s that athletic
  • I don’t think he’d form an alliance with anyone, because he doesn’t trust anyone lmao
  • He really has no strategy to how he would survive
  • Like he mostly tries to stay away from people but he’s not really good at hiding and that can only work for so long
  • Probably would get a lot of donations (?) just from how beautiful he is
  • I know I would
  • I mean what?

Seven

  • He could probably make it about half way through
  • He has some idea of how to survive, and he like basically the rest of the rfa lmao tries to stay away from everyone else
  • He’d def team up with you if you asked him
  • Strength in numbers, right?
  • Also if you know literally any survival skills he’ll be happy
  • He would especially team up if he knew you before, because not only could he trust you he’s basically been in love with you since you first met

V

  • Ohhhh oh no
  • Can I just make it so that he’s not blind in this?? cause that wouldn’t be fun to write rip
  • Okay so again, like the rest of the rfa, he’s not going to attack anyone directly
  • He would fight if he had to for self defense, but he wouldn’t kill them
  • I could see him being averagely strong? and has pretty good survival skills so he could probably last a while
  • He probably could win if he was willing to kill the other tributes
  • He would definitely team up with you
  • Or really anyone, he doesn’t really want to be in it by himself, if you’re the first person to ask him then yeah

coralscanvas  asked:

So sinces Jiraiya died and sadly didn't continue his Icha Icha series which obviously left Kakashi heart broken how would he react to his S/O attempting to write him a smutty book for a gift?

I love Kakashi so much it hurts sometimes. AND I’M SO SAD BECAUSE I GOT MAYBE LIKE 3 REQUESTS FOR HIM OUT OF 140 I WANNA KMS ;_;

(Kind of) NSFW

♦ Kakashi will be super embarrassed at first. Even if his interest for Jiraiya’s books aren’t a secret to anyone, there’s something about his s/o thinking he loves it so much they need to write a sequel to make him happy that just makes him feel awkward in the “do they think I’m that much of a pervert ?” kind of way.

♦ When the initial embarrassment fades, he’s going to think this is really funny and joke about it around you by openly talking about certain kinks that he thinks you should add in – and by kinks I mean ridiculous thoughts that go through his head at random times and not necessarily something he actually wants to try in the bedroom.

♦ If you actually write some real good sinful shit, you can bet he’s gonna blush the whole time while reading it. And since he’s a kinky little shit himself, he might tease you about it, asking you if you’d like it if he recreated certain scenes with you. If you say yes, he’ll definitely stay true to his words and do it.

♦ He will definitely imagine himself as the main character and you as his love interest the whole time. Be prepared to deal with a horny Kakashi for a few weeks because it’s the only thing he’ll have in mind for a while, even after he finished reading it.

♦ Deep down he’s gonna be so grateful to have such an awesome s/o who, instead of judging him for his sometimes questionable taste in literature, is ready to write an entire smut book for him since his favourite author is no longer here to do it. He’s definitely gonna try to make it back to you at some point.

I know that I’m a few days late, but I’ve been really enjoying all of the “Current Journals” posts inspired by @journaling-junkie ’s January Journal Challenge, so I knew I had to post my own.

My Current Journal/Sketchbooks: (These guys typically go with me almost everywhere I go.)

1. Handlettering Practice Book #2—Guys, this sketchbook is AMAZING. It is a Canson XL Mixed Media 7"x10" sketchbook that has a really solid medium paper weight at 98lbs. I love the paper. I love the size (you can put an even 2" mat around your artwork to fit a standard 11x14 frame; I’m a framer, this is how my brain looks for paper sizes). I love that it’s spiral bound, so it will lay flat while I’m working. 10/10 definitely going to purchase again when this one is full. I should mention that the page on the left in this picture was inspired by a post by @girlfig that made me laugh pretty hard.

2. Bullet Journal—I’m not entirely sure where I got this journal from (I had it for years before I finally found a use for it). It’s not really my style, but the cover is made out of canvas board making it really sturdy and impossible to bend. This journal is where my brain goes to organize itself. I haven’t posted pages from my bullet journal on here because I don’t take the time to decorate the pages; it’s a no-nonsense place for lists, schedules and brainstorming.

3. My Art Journal—This is where my brain goes to unwind and feel free. I had a hard time finding a page that you guys haven’t already seen, so here’s an in-progress page, even though it doesn’t have too much further to go before it’s done.

4. “Adventures in White” Book—If you’ve been following my #adventuresinwhite tag, you know this a sketchbook of solid black paper, and I’ve been experimenting with every sort of white medium that I can get my hands on. The page shown here is, of course, still in progress, but the lettering is being done with a Gellyroll white gel pen and the galaxy on the right was done with General’s Charcoal White pencil.

5. A Small Collection of My Favorite Words & Phrases—It was $3 from Target and all graph paper, which I thought might be nice for lettering practice. The pages themselves are pretty lightweight though, so I don’t want to use most of my pens and markers for fear I’ll ruin their tips. It’s been pencil-only so far and there’s a good chance it will stay that way.

This makes for a happy Emily. 💛

Post your current journals! I know we’re a few days late here, but I love getting a glimpse of how all of my favorite artists operate behind the scenes.

@Saito_Shuka: I got a few messages here and there from people who told me they got the magazine.
Thank you very much!!
Yep! It came out today! The special add-on to B.L.T. March 2017, 
‘Dressed up Seiyuu Special BOOK’, has been released.
I’ll be in your care ( ´›ω‹ ` ) Hehe

the80sbrony  asked:

What would Rainbow Dash say if I asked her for a hug?

Well, I can’t speak for her, it’s not my place to do so, really you should ask her. However, if I was to guess, I think it would be something like: “Uh, no, I don’t even know you, and I am way too cool for that.” The latter part isn’t true, but she is rather selective about it, so it’s probably not worth your time. She loves to sign pictures, however, if you’re a fan.

Arithmancy • Hermione Granger

I felt like I could die. For the past hour I’ve been cramming Arithmancy. I detested the class really… I should have taken a Care of Magical Creatures. The real reason I took the class was because Hermione was taking it and I am hopelessly in love with her. And now of course I am doing horrible in the class because I am so ridiculously distracted by the beautiful girl that sits next to me.

I am sitting in the common room staring at the text book as people walk in and out until I hear her laugh. My head shoots up and I see her smiling down at me and she says, “I saw you here before dinner, are you really still studying Arithmancy?”

“Yeah, this class has just gotten so much harder, I dont even feel like I was in class for the explanation of this chapter, it makes no sense!” I say smiling and stressfully brushing my hair out of face.

“I could help you if you want,” She says, sitting down next to me. I nod and blush at her close proximity, maybe if the person I’m so distracted by explains it to me I’ll actually pay attention.

Ron and Harry are over her shoulder wiggling their eyebrows and giving me a thumbs up. I can’t say my crush isn’t obvious and I dont know how she hasn’t noticed but they swear that she likes me too. I know they dont have any reason to lie but I find it hard to believe that she likes me, she’s so perfect.

She goes through and explanes each section of the chapter and stopping every now and again to make sure I understand, I actually think that I’m starting to understand. As she finishes up the last part of the chapter she stops suddenly and says, “I didn’t realize how late its gotten.”

I looked around and noticed that besides us the common room was completely empty, which means that its very late. “Yeah, thank you so much for you’re help and sorry it took so long,” I say feeling bad that I had kept her up.

“No worries, anything for you (y/n),” She responds. I am caught off guard by how beautiful she looks right now in the low lights of the fireplace, smiling at me and saying my name, she really did drive me crazy. All I could think about is how her friends tell me she likes me and how every night in the dorm rooms I wish she’d be in my bed with me sleeping together and how I wish I could kiss her when I see her in the halls. And then I give her a peck on the lips.

I see the look in her eyes and realize what I’ve just done, “I am so sorry, I was out of place I-”

“Hey, (y/n), its okay, I like you too I was just… surprised is all,“ She says. We are both blushing like mad and she gives me another kiss on the lips, its slower and sweeter and everything I could have imagined. She slowly separated from me then stood up, “We should probably get to bed.”

I nod my head and she takes my hand pulling me up. We walk hand in hand up the to dorms. “Thanks again,” I say outside the dorms then give her another short kiss before we walked into the room and got into our beds.

All I could think of that night was how happy I was that Hermione and I were finally together. And blushing like mad at the thought of what Ron and Harry were going to say when they find out.

everyone should read the engelsfors trilogy (and then come talk with me about it because i have no one to yell about this book with). it’s so good

  • all the main pov characters are teenage girls and they’re all very different in terms of upbringing, socio-economic status, personality, etc. you get to know each of them along with their families and friends and it’s just really lovely, discovering their nuances and hopes and fears over time, and i never had a least favorite point-of-view, they were all good and interesting which is not always the case with multi-pov books
  • they’re the chosen ones and they have to save the world from the apocalypse by working together despite their differences
  • they’re not very good at it 
  • but that’s what happens when you grab a bunch of very different people and make them work together. the story is all about them learning to do just that
  • ~~contemporary fantasy with elemental magic and a good balance between real-world stuff and fantasy~~
  • also consenting body swap with character and relationship development, it’s really good
  • the main romance in the trilogy is between two of the girls and it’s beautiful slow-build goodness and it’s the best and they make me cry i love them so much <3
  • actually a lot of the characters make me weep, either in pain or joy or both
  • you will definitely over-identify with one or more of them and then you will cry about it
  • the supporting characters are also interesting
  • like you get the families of each of the chosen ones and all of them have unique relationships with them - some good, some not so good. same goes with friends outside the main group
  • and then you have the villains who also have their own reasons for doing the things they do. some of them are magical, some of them are not.
  • also mona who gives cryptic advice and makes money by selling magical stuff and scamming non-magical people and is generally hilarious
  • lots of issues are covered but it’s all done naturally through the characters and it’s good. 
  • plus a really lovely slow redemption arc
  • ~~FRIENDSHIP~~
  • GIRLS SUPPORTING EACH OTHER 
  • GIRLS BECOMING STRONG AND DEVELOPING INTO BETTER PEOPLE TOGETHER
  • SERIOUSLY THOUGH THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE GIRLS AND THEIR DEVELOPMENT IS THE BEST THING 
  • basically it’s a book about teen witches saving the world while becoming friends (or girlfriends <3), learning to respect one another + work together, and growing into better stronger people. if that’s what you want in a book, GO READ THESE NOW AND THEN COME TALK TO ME ABOUT THEM

I’ve been thinking a lot about Madi recently. 

There’s quite a few ideas floating around in my head, but I didn’t seem to be able to find the right words to express them (though I made some attempts), and then I read jaune-clair’s fantastic meta over here and it’s expressed perfectly. (Really, you should read it, it’s great.)

The thing is, anyone who’s followed me for a certain amount of time, or anyone who remembers me persistently posting in the Black Sails tag over the years (in very sporadic bursts), know I love Treasure Island. I’m that meme, basically. Long John Silver is one of my favorite literary characters of all time. And while his wife is only mentioned three times in the entire book, their relationship has always fascinated me to no end. So I’m always disappointed that she’s never included in any adaptions. Sure, I have a very specific set of headcanons for the two that no show would ever be able to fulfill, but still. She’s never in anything (except for that Eddie Izzard version which I have a liveblog of that continues once every century), which is such a shame.

When Black Sails’ first season came around, those who knew TI already went full out speculating. Max was the most popular one back then, because while Black Sails has a great deal of diveristy in many departments, there weren’t really that many options. Besides, she had a fitting relationship with Silver and it seemed like it could work. That theory has gone a bit up and down over the years though.

Enter season 3 and Madi. I think that those familiar with Treasure Island, me included, took one look at her and her budding relationship with Silver and said “Yep, it’s her”. And I’ve kind of remained in that position, and 4x01 didn’t really lessen my conviction. Their relationship is played out very beautifully, and I really felt for Madi when she hugged him in s3 as well as when she cried out for him after he fell in the water in the most recent episode. Their post-sex scene was beautifully filmed. 

And yet something keeps bugging me. 

I really want all the best for Madi. She’s a wonderful addition to the show and her relationship with Silver is really cool, as is her relationship with power and the other characters on the show. 

I think a lot of us have been too stuck in immediately going “Oh, obviously she’s the wife” to think of what that would mean. I’m not saying she won’t be, I’d still say I am about 75 % sure that she is. Maybe higher. But what exactly would it mean if she is, indeed, Mrs Silver?

I have a post in my draft waiting to be edited about how Black Sails deals with stories, both in the show and outside of it. I’m just going to briefly reference concepts I talk about that here. The core of it is, they see Treasure Island not as a definitive source, but as a tale created for children based on the actual events but far from factual (which I mean, it technically is). I think that’s a brilliant way of relating to a text. But even if they took liberties with it, there’s not much liberties to be taken with Silver’s wife. 

What we know of her, is that she and Silver run their inn together. They’re married, which is very unconventional. We know that Silver leaves the inn as well as all his savings in her safe-keeping while he goes off looking for the treasure. We know he has decided to meet up with her at a secret spot after they return and that he (and through him, Jim Hawkins) firmly believes that she’ll be there waiting for him. Jim even finishes by saying that he wishes Silver is indeed living happily with his wife somewhere. 

As I pondered this, I was trying to merge this image with that of Madi. 

Madi is a Queen. She’s a queen and a leader of her people, a co-leader of the entire rebellion against England. She’s fierce and knows that even if she cares for Silver, her people needs to come first. And I asked myself “What would make her leave them?”

And thus, as is also brilliantly described in the most I linked at first (but I also felt the need to ramble about it so here we are), we are faced with a number of options, and I honestly can’t say which one I prefer. 

1) Madi leaves her people after the failure of the war against England to go with Silver to England. While this would technically mean a happy outcome for her (she’s alive), I still can’t reconcile her willingly leaving her people behind, if they’re still standing. And then she’d just sit around and wait while Silver risks his life on some fool’s quest to maybe, maybe get some more of the treasure Flint left behind? Maybe as the season goes on I can see it. Is she dethroned? Does she think they’re better off with someone else? Is her love for Silver that strong? If any of you have any meta or thoughts about this outcome, I’d love to read it. 

2) The entire Maroon community gets killed. I really don’t want this. I mean, I know that most characters probably wont’ survive this season, and when you have a diverse yet small cast like Black Sails does, this will most likely end up in characters you’d rather see alive for representation getting killed. I know that happens, and that’s not necessarily always a fault as long as done right (and as long as they’re not the only ones dying). But for the majority of that community to be completely wiped out? I’d hate to see that happen, on just an emotional level. And it would devastating for Madi. 

3) Madi isn’t actually Silver’s TI wife. She either doesn’t go with him and chooses to stay with her people, or she dies. It would break my heart, and depending on how they do it it would tip closely to fridging. I mean, it really does depend on how she’d die. If she dies for her own cause, for her people, through her own decisions, it would be less so, true. It would work thematically. Silver is taking over Flint’s position and learning that when you’re essentially Flint everyone you love will die. The great love for Flint that put it all in motion was Thomas, and he lost him (and then Gates and Miranda too, of course), and it would be fitting if tragic if Silver’s great love Madi would suffer the same fate, and this would somehow cause the falling out between Flint and Silver.  In this case, I’d probably revert back to the Max theory, which would in some ways also be thematically fitting, given how Silver made plans for them to escape together already in episode 2.

I still think that overall, no.1 is the most likely. But the possibility that the creators are totally aware of that we (at least the people who know of TI) would assume Madi is safe was an idea that hit me. And I can’t shake it. It’s making me nervous, but I’m still completely open to all of these ideas (well, maybe less open to number 2 tbh.) if done in a way that stays true to the characters. 

I’ve mostly just rambled here, but if you have any thoughts on the matter, I’d love to hear them. I know in the end we want all of our favorite characters to survive, even though in a show like Black Sails that is unlikely. And if they do, we still want them to stay true to who they are. 

So what do you make of my dilemma? Do you just not see it as I do, or do you have another solution to the whole conundrum? 

I still wonder how you’re doing, what have you been up to. I miss talking to you, I miss how you make me feel better, how you comfort me. I really should absorb the fact that the “us” literally ended years ago so that I could remind myself not to think of you anymore but you know how my mind works, it will always, always, wander back to you.

Bible Outline for Beginners

So you’ve decided to tackle one of the most influential books in human history. Now, it seems daunting (and it is), but the thing to remember about the Bible is that it’s not actually one book. The Bible is made up of 73 books (66 if you’re reading a Protestant Bible) all written by different authors, during different time points in history, and for different reasons. The best way to really understand the content of the Bible is to keep in mind the context of the book you’re currently reading. It does nobody any good if you treat the Book of Psalms (largely poetic hymns to the God of Abraham) with the same air that you would Deuteronomy (which should be read as sermons delivered by Moses to the Israelites). So, to help you, I’m providing this lovely outline which divides the books of the Bible into nice digestible chunks

Books marked with an ** are part of the deuterocanonical books (those found in Catholic Bibles but not in Protestant Bibles).

The Old Testament

The Pentateuch: The first five books of the bible, called the Torah by the Jewish people. Included in these books are the stories of creation and of the nation of Israel. It also includes the law given to the Israelites by God.

  • Genesis
  • Exodus

  • Numbers
  • Deuteronomy

Historical Books: These books tell the story of the Israelites from their entry into the Promised Land until the Exile.

  • Joshua
  • Judges
  • Ruth
  • 1 Samuel
  • 2 Samuel

  • 2 Chronicles
  • Ezra
  • Nehemiah
  • Tobit**
  • Judith**
  • Esther** (deuterocanonical additions)
  • 1 Maccabees**
  • 2 Maccabees**

Wisdom Literature: These books are Jewish reflections of faith and God’s relationship with humanity.

  • Job
  • Psalms
  • Proverbs
  • Ecclesiastes
  • Song of Songs
  • Wisdom of Solomon**
  • Sirach**

Prophets: The writings of the people whom God inspired to counsel and confront people and kings.

  • Isaiah
  • Jeremiah
  • Lamentations
  • Baruch**
  • Ezekiel

  • Zechariah
  • Malachi

Books of the New Testament of Jesus Christ

The Gospel Account:
Four portraits and collections of stories and sayings of Jesus of Nazareth

Synoptic Gospels:

  • Matthew
  • Mark
  • Luke

Non-synoptic Gospel:
