i want to hear you live

ktzen  asked:

hey i hate 2 ask you and you're not obligated to answer but i'd like to hear a mormon perspective on if animals go to heaven or not? i'm not rlly well versed in lds beliefs but idk other sects think they will, others think they won't? by no means you have to answer this i just want to know, so answer if you'd like!! (also i love mimi kiss her for me)

well, a lot of people including myself say that yes, animals do go to heaven!! but if you wanna get deep into mormon teachings or whatever heres what i got 

from the scriptures, we know that animals have living souls from god, who “breathed into them the breath of life” (moses 3:19). we also know that “not one hair, neither mote, shall be lost” from the plants and animals god created (doctrine and covenants 29:23-25). god also promised he “will make them to lie down safely” in the last days (hosea 2:18).

in jesus’s teachings of the sparrows “are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before god?” (luke 12:5). if the sparrows aren’t forgotten than why would god forget any other animal?? unless he just likes sparrows i mean sparrows are neat

if you wanna talk prophets, in president joseph fielding smith’s october 1928 conference address, he said, “the animals, the fishes of the sea, the fowls of the air, as well as man, are to be recreated, or renewed, through the resurrection, for they too are living souls.” he also wrote in answers to gospel questions’ that “animals do have spirits and that through the redemption made by our savior they will come forth in the resurrection to enjoy the blessing of immortal life.”

tl;dr: yes! mormons do believe animals go to heaven. thank u for going to me to ask, i feel flattered

*sees the anon using cancer as an insult* *sees your response* Now I have even more reason to be here, since you won't put up with that sort of thing. That stupid anon is really insensitive. They don't care about those who's lives were changed because of cancer. They just want to use a deadly disease as an insult. What's my family, chopped liver? Because my mom just recovered from Breast cancer. I will fite that anon.

I’m glad to hear that your mother has recovered, violence is not needed anyways.

‘you have to respect your president’ is an absolutely terrifying statement and i never want to hear it again. no. you don’t have to respect a man that is racist, islamophobic, misogynistic, homophobic, intolerant, disrespectful (and the list goes on). the idea that you have to respect someone just because they’re in a position of power is fundamentally wrong, it’s how dictatorships work, it’s how oppression thrives, it’s saying that lives of minorities are somehow worth less. are you hearing yourselves?

I was thinking about how there are probably homeless wizarding kids in the Harry Potter universe. Muggleborns specifically. Their parents don’t react positively to a magical child. They don’t see a gift or a miracle. They see the devil. So they throw their kids out. I picture a ministry group in charge of taking in and caring for homeless magic children. They just when they get the message a kid has magic but no address they send people out to find them. They get taken in my the ministry or adopted by wizarding parents who want to adopt a magic child.

Specifically I would like you all to picture Luna Lovegood taking in rowdy formerly homeless magic 10 year olds, getting them ready for Hogwarts, and sending them letters on the time. They call her mom. They live with her durinng the summer. She is known for her generosity and gentleness. Picture little gryffindors wanting to hear all about how she knows Harry Potter, little ravenclaws discussing riddles with her, little hufflepuffs saying they want to grow up to take in kids just like she did, and little slytherins getting her help on their work so that they can be the very best. Picture please Luna Lovegood being Mama Bear for like 14 formerly homeless magic children.

Listen to the city on the other side of the walls. The cars racing to places people don’t want to go. The ambulances racing from horror to hope. Listen to the people shouting and laughing and loving and fighting and giving birth and taking lives. Listen for the heartbeat among the chaos of Gotham City…like I did when I was a kid and slept on the sidewalk more than one night. There is a world out there in this city. Can you hear it?

My cat scared the living tar outta me today, seems like a regular problem that would pop up when living with a Tamaranean

When I taught creative writing at Princeton, my students had been told all of their lives to write what they knew. I always began the course by saying, “Don’t pay any attention to that.” First, because you don’t know anything and second, because I don’t want to hear about your true love and your mama and your papa and your friends.


Think of somebody you don’t know. What about a Mexican waitress in the Rio Grande who can barely speak English? Or what about a Grande Madame in Paris? Things way outside their camp. Imagine it, create it. Don’t record and editorialize on some event that you’ve already lived through.


I was always amazed at how effective that was. They were always out of the box when they were given license to imagine something wholly outside their existence. I thought it was a good training for them. Even if they ended up just writing an autobiography, at least they could relate to themselves as strangers.

Picture Perfect - Dean Winchester x Reader x Sam Winchester

Title: Picture Perfect

Pairing: Sam Winchester x Reader, Dean Winchester x Reader

Word Count: 3,652

Warnings: None

Prompt: I got it! Can you do a fic where Sam dies while (Y/N) is pregnant with his child and so Dean helps her raise the child and they live the apple pie life and right when Dean wants to propose to (Y/N), Sam returns to life & ANGST. Please and thank you

“Mary!” Dean shouted “Breakfast’s ready, come on!” he said loud enough, hoping the little girl was going to hear him.

“Yes daddy!” she said in her childlike voice as she ran down the stairs. Her brown curls were bouncing as her green eyes sparkled with happiness the moment she spotted the food that lay on the table.

“Pie!” she exclaimed and the man chuckled at the girl.

“Yes princess!” he placed the last pancake on the place and put the frying pan away. He leaned down and picked her up, giving her a big kiss on the cheek as the little girl giggled at him.

“And it’s your favorite!” he said with a big grin and she squealed.

“Apple pie!”

“-Which you are not going to have for breakfast.” you said with a strict – but loving – mom look.

“What?” she pouted “Why?”

“Sweetheart.” you said softly, taking her from Dean’s arms “Pie is not right for breakfast and you know it. We’ve said you can have pie whenever you want to- as a treat. You will have to eat your meal first.” you said, tucking a few brown curls behind her ear.

“But daddy eats pie all the time- even for breakfast and you let him. Why can’t I?” the four-year-old gave you those puppy eyes that could actually do you anything they wanted.

Derek x Reader

Warnings: talks about sex, jealous Derek, first time, sex, smut

Requested By Anon


Derek glanced up when you shuffled into his loft, he was surprised to see you’d come alone, normally if he so much as looked at you he’d have you caving into a giddy blushing mess. He knew exactly why you acted that way, the scent of it clung to you, driving the wolves insane but they resisted you.

You didn’t mean to have the deliciously obsessive scent and no one wanted to be the first one to point it out. He watched as you stopped in the middle of his living room and glanced at the door as if you were having second thoughts about being there.

 

“You alright?” He asked finally and you jumped when he stepped into the dim light.

Let’s turn this into a game;
How far can I run before I boomerang and find myself on the road straight back to you?
How many times can I cry to my friends before they get tired of hearing the same story?
How long can I stay awake for purely out of spite to the fact you use to help me sleep?

How long can I live in this world without you?

NORTH CAROLINIANS-

WE CAN HELP CHANGE IF BETSY DEVOS GETS APPROVED.

REPUBLICAN SENATOR TILLIS OF NORTH CAROLINA HAS SAID ONCE AGAIN HE IS ON THE FENCE AND WANTS TO HEAR FROM CONSTITUENTS.

PLEASE only call if you are from North Carolina.

Make sure to give your name and zip code, and you can just say something as simple as “I’m calling to oppose Betsy DeVos’ nomination for secretary of education. I do not think she is qualified and am concerned.”

Here are the numbers:

(919) 856-4630 - does not have a direct voicemail to the Senator if no one answers

WHETHER OR NOT YOU LIVE IN NC, PLEASE BOOST THIS FOR ANYONE FROM NC TO SEE.

You don’t want to hear the story
of my life, and anyway
I don’t want to tell it, I want to listen

to the enormous waterfalls of the sun.

And anyway it’s the same old story—
a few people trying,
one way or another,
to survive.

Mostly, I want to be kind.
And nobody, of course, is kind
or mean,
for a simple reason.

And nobody gets out of it, having to
swim through the fires to stay in
this world.
