“Your Grace, a petitioner has come to see you.”

“My sword, my arm, my life, I pledge to you, my king/queen.”

“The beast has demanded the princess as tribute.”

“I RENOUNCE MY CLAIM!”

“I will fight your champion!”

“Your highness, your father/mother is dead. You are now King/Queen.”

“You have been charged with High Treason against the Crown. How do you plead?”

“I find you all guilty of High Treason against the Crown!”

“What punishment does Your Grace see fit to give such a low creature?”

“That boy/girl there is a false heir. I am the True Prince/Princess!”

“I seek your hand in marriage, my lord/lady.”

“Shall I make the engagement arrangements, Your Majesty?”

“The prince/princess has run away with a stablehand! I’m gathering a force to bring him/her back.”

“This war has lasted too long. May we find peace between us?”

“There will never be peace so long as that fat king rules!”

“The enemy has invaded the western half of the kingdom, and the wild tribes of the south are rising up. What are we to do, Your Majesty?”

“The heir is born!”

“The heir has died!”

“The prince/princess is excelling in their lessons, Your Grace. You must be proud.”

“The princess has taken an interest in swordplay. What do you say of this, Your Grace?”

“The prince/princess has taken an interest in magic. What do you say of this, Your Grace?”

“I heard the King is having an affair.”

“Everyone knows the King/Queen is sleeping with the court fool, give me some new news!”

“All hail King/Queen ___! Long live the King/Queen!”

The world cannot give what it does not have; unreal to the core, it is of no use for real happiness. It cannot be otherwise. We seek the real because we are unhappy with the unreal. Happiness is our real nature and we shall never rest until we find it. But rarely we know where to seek it. Once you have understood that the world is but a mistaken view of reality, and is not what it appears to be, you are free of its obsessions.

Hannibal AU

 Hannibal Lecter as Hades; Will Graham as Persephone

“You stole me, greedy creature that you are, from all that I knew and loved. Then you sulk that I do not shower you with affection, you will not have my love nor my heart. You call yourself a god and yet you behave like a petulant child.” 

“Death is greedy, it is my nature. Our nature. Life and death are two sides of the same coin. One does not exist without the other. Before the end you will see that.“

“Do not lecture me. There is nothing you can say to me that will absolve you, not if you spoke for a thousand eternities”

“I do not seek absolution. I seek understanding.”

“You shall find neither.”

316- Odor Sleuth

Normal Type: Charm. Seek and find the truth about someone through this spell. This spell is to enhance your intuition.

What You’ll Need~

  • A pouch
  • Lavender
  • Thyme
  • A small item to represent the person you want to know the truth about

Procedure~

  1. When you have an item to represent your potential liar (or person simply just hiding things from you), whisper the person’s name to it.
  2. Put your ingredients into the pouch. Smell it, thinking thoroughly about the scent.
  3. Say “I am guided by this aroma towards truth, for better or worse, to know what is right. It cannot hide from me, it shall be identified.”
  4. Sleep with the pouch under your pillow. The next day, you should listen to what your gut tells you, and go with your instincts.

TIPS

  • I would be at least a little careful that when relying on your intuition, that you’re not leaning too heavily on your emotions. Sometimes that can cloud your perception.

Desire’s Request to Fen’Sulahn

“Your determination to aid your companion is true,” She announces with a nod. “A body I will grant you, to do what must be done. Do not stray from that which you seek, and I shall offer you a place among my ranks, to serve the People, and to stand in the face of adversity with head held high, and conscience clear. Move forward with conviction, and you shall find yourself welcome in Fen’Sulahn’s halls.”

Currently writing what happens to Glory in the Fen’Sulahn AU and had to get this out. Olwyn…why do you love fur so much? And why does Haurshos have to be so gigantic? SO MUCH FUR. XD 

anonymous asked:

Please pray for me? I'm working on being more obedient to God and having more self-control.

Hi! Curious; are you asking for prayer because you messed up and feel bad? If so, you don’t need prayer for that. All you need is to focus on the truth. You cannot control what life throws at you, you only have the power to believe you and others are far worth more through the finished work of Jesus Christ. Grasp ahold of that, and you’ll be fine. Seek Him, find Him. Grow in the knowledge of Him, and destructive ways shall cease.

Love you and God bless.

  • Namjoon: You know, there are always flowers for those who want to see them.
  • Jungkook: Okay but what about a scarf to keep her warm? It's getting cold these days.
  • Namjoon: You can only feel warm when your heart feels warm.
  • Jungkook: Hyung, you are not helping.
  • Namjoon: Ask, and it shall be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be open.
  • Jungkook: Oh my God!
  • Namjoon: Yes, only God can judge us.

Summary: The new king finds his court sorcerer. After some grumbling of course.

This hadeeth !

Ibn al-Jawzi said, ‘I pondered this hadith and it struck me with awe; I was so astounded that I almost became light headed…

‘Abdul-Qadir al-Jilani said, ‘Every believer should make this hadith a mirror to his heart, his axiom, his shelter and his topic of conversation. He should act by it in all times of motion and stillness so that he can be saved in this world and in the Hereafter.’


On the authority of Abul Abbas Abdullah bin Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:
One day I was behind the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) [riding on the same mount] and he said, “O young man, I shall teach you some words [of advice]: Be mindful of Allah and Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah and you will find Him in front of you. If you ask, then ask Allah [alone]; and if you seek help, then seek help from Allah [alone]. And know that if the nation were to gather together to benefit you with anything, they would not benefit you except with what Allah had already prescribed for you. And if they were to gather together to harm you with anything, they would not harm you except with what Allah had already prescribed against you. The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried.” It was related by at-Tirmidhi, who said it was a good and sound hadeeth. Another narration, other than that of Tirmidhi, reads: Be mindful of Allah, and you will find Him in front of you. Recognize and acknowledge Allah in times of ease and prosperity, and He will remember you in times of adversity. And know that what has passed you by [and you have failed to attain] was not going to befall you, and what has befallen you was not going to pass you by. And know that victory comes with patience, relief with affliction, and hardship with ease.

You knew you should of never agreed to this mission. Currently you were sitting across from Steve, staring into the fire. Waiting for the rescue team as currently, your ride home was gone. Blown to bits.

“This is fucking great. Splendid, just peachy. My ass is frozen, my insides are popsicles.”

Steve looked up at you, observing your scowling form almost sitting directly on the fire. Steve frowned a bit and asked.

“Do you want-”

“-no. I think you need the blankets.”

“-we both do.”

You looked up with a quesstioning gaze and noticed the red on Steves cheeks. You guessed it was from the cold of the night and asked, suspicious.

“What are you suggesting?”

“Well, you know how penguins huddle for warmth, right?”

You giggled. Steve had this weird thing for penguins. Nobody really knew why. You nodded and Steve asked, sitting straight with his arms at his sides, hands jutting out and he waddled in his seat.

“Do you want to huddle so you can get warm?”

You giggled at his cute gestures and walked over to him, sitting beside him. He wrapped an arm around you and you sighed at the warmth. You slowly fell asleep and Steve held you tightly, rubbing your arms and keeping you both warm until Nick came to get you.

-Timeskip-

Now, a week later, you were in the same position, watching a show about penguins.

‘What is with your fascination with penguins, Steve?”

Steve stated, kissing your temple softly.

“You remind me of peguins.”

‘What? How?”

Steve chuckled and stated.

“You’re adorable and cute. And the way you walk sometimes.”

You laughed and said, holding his hand.

“You remind me of an eagle.”

“ca-cawww!”

Clint popped out from the vents, upside down and asked.

“You called?”

RICK RIORDAN PROPHECY MASTER THREAD

Just thought I’d go over every Prophecy Uncle Rick has made and look to see if they’re complete yet (SPOILER ALERT: DON’T READ ANY PROPHECIES YOU HAVEN’T SEEN COMPLETED YET THAT HAVE BEEN, I WILL SUMMARISE EACH PROPHECY)

PJO


The Lightning Thief:
You shall go west, and face the god who has turned,
You shall find what was stolen, and see it safely returned,
You shall be betrayed by one who calls you a friend,
And you shall fail to save what matters most, in the end.

COMPLETED - God who turned is Ares, Percy found and returned both Zeus’ Lightning Bolt and Hades’ Helm of Darkness, betrayed by Luke siding with Kronos and trying to frame Percy/sabotage the mission, failed to save Sally, though Hades did return her once Percy’s innocence was proven.

The Sea of Monsters:
You shall sail the iron ship with warriors of bone,
You shall find what you seek and make it your own,
But despair for your life entombed within stone,
And fail without friends, to fly home alone.

COMPLETED - Clarisse used the CSS Birmingham, which had a skeleton crew, they found the Golden Fleece, for a bit Clarisse was stuck in Polyphemus’ cave, on her own she would have failed, but she had to return to camp alone for them to succeed.

The Titan’s Curse:
Five shall go west to the goddess in chains,
One shall be lost in the land without rain,
The bane of Olympus shows the trail,
Campers and Hunters combined prevail,
The Titan’s curse must one withstand,
And one shall perish by a parent’s hand.

COMPLETED - Artemis was the goddess in chains, Bianca died in the desert, Bessie the Ophiotaurus was the bane of Olympus, the 5 was a mix of hunter/camper, Percy held up the sky, and Zoe died at the hands of Atlas.

The Battle of the Labyrinth:
You shall delve in the darkness of the endless maze,
The dead, the traitor, and the lost one raise.
You shall rise or fall by the ghost king’s hand,
The Child of Athena’s final stand.
Destroy with a hero’s final breath,
And lose a love to worse than death.

COMPLETED - Had to enter the labyrinth, Nico raised the dead, Ethan turned traitor, Pan was the lost one, Nico was the Ghost King and saved the camp, Daedalus was the child of Athena, his death killed the Labyrinth, And Luke became Kronos’ host, a loss worse than death for Annabeth


HoO

The Lost Hero:
Child of Lightning, beware the earth,
The giants’ revenge the seven shall birth,
The forge and dove shall break the cage,
And death unleash, through Hera’s rage.

COMPLETED - Jason had to be wary of Gaea, The rise of the giants forces the coming together of the 7 from the great prophecy, Leo and Piper have to work together to free Hera, Hera’s assuming true form kills all enemies in the area.

The Son of Neptune:
Go to Alaska.
Find Thanatos and free him.
Come back by sundown on June twenty-fourth or die.

COMPLETED - No explanation required, they just managed to fulfill Mars’ orders.

Ella’s Prophecy (SoN Pt II):
To the north, beyond the gods, lies the legion’s crown.
Falling from ice, the son of Neptune shall drown.
(rest of prophecy burnt before Ella could remember it)

PART KNOWN PROBABLY COMPLETED - They retrieved the Legion’s colours from Alaska, the land beyond the gods. there is still ambiguity over the 2nd line, but all 3 suggested options have already happened. Percy fell in the muskeg in Alaska, it seemed like he drowned when he fell off a glacier, and he drowned his enemies at the frozen Roman camp.

The Mark of Athena:
Wisdom’s daughter walks alone,
The Mark of Athena burns through Rome.
Twins snuff out the angel’s breath,
Who holds the key to endless death.
Giants’ bane stands gold and pale,
Won through pain from a woven jail.

COMPLETED - Annabeth has to complete this on her own,the Mark of Athena leads her on the right path (through Rome), the Twin giants, Ephialtes and Otis, have Nico DI ANGELO locked up in a jar without air, and Nico knows where the Doors of Death are. The Athena Parthenos is the giants’ bane, and it is taken from Arachne, though at the cost of Percabeth falling to Tartarus.


Magnus Chase

The Sword of Summer:
Wrongly chosen, Wrongly slain
A hero Valhalla cannot contain
Nine days hence the sun must go east
Ere Sword of Summer unbinds the beast

COMPLETED - Loki underestimated Magnus and thought he would be easy to manipulate, Magnus ttavels through the Nine Worlds and doesn’t stay in Valhalla, he has 9 days to stop Ragnarok starting, and the Sword of Summer first cuts, then reties the binds of the Fenris Wolf.

Great Prophecies

The Great Prophecy:
A Half-Blood of the eldest gods,
Shall reach sixteen against all odds,
And see the world in endless sleep.
The hero’s soul, cursed blade shall reap,
A single choice shall end his days,
Olympus to preserve or raze.


COMPLETED - A child of the Big 3 turns 16 (Percy), Morpheus sent the whole of Manhattan to sleep, Luke used Annabeth’s dagger to kill himself and stop Kronos, which was cursed because he broke his promise to Annabeth that he’d always be there for her. It was Percy’s choice to trust Luke is what saved Olympus, though Luke would have died anyway.

The Prophecy of Seven:
Seven half-bloods shall answer the call.
To storm or fire, the world must fall.
An oath to keep with a final breath,
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.

COMPLETED - the 7 half bloods were Jason, Leo, Piper, Frank, Hazel, Percy and Annabeth, Gaea was always going to fall to either Leo or Jason (it was Leo). Leo only survived by using the Physician’s Cure, so he died and came back  life in Ogygia, meaning he kept his oath to come back for Calypso. And every enemy you could imagine fights against the seven at the Doors of Death.


If I missed any out feel free to add them.

The notes I made on the “Law of Attraction”

Note: This is a list of notes I put together while watching various videos on this topic. None of the thoughts and sayings are originally mine.

Hopefully, you will find some of the thoughts below helpful.

  • know, where you are going – the answers will come to you on their own accord
  • ask and it shall be given you, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you
  • all you need is a purpose and faith
  • every difficulty you are undergoing now – treasure it, you never know how this exact experience can help you to achieve your goals in the future
  • no matter what your job is – do it as you have never done it before
  • act as if it were impossible to fail
  • by being persistent, you are demonstrating faith
  • don’t worry – worry brings fear and fear is crippling
  • hold your goal before you, everything else will take care itself
  • you attract what you fear, what you are, what’s on your mind
  • vizualise things you want to attract
  • an insane belief in being able to manifest things
  • we create with every word, every thought
  • you have to go: „it’s here, it’s here, it’s here“
  • intention is everything
  • thought is a driving force to everything
  • what you do is creative vision of who you want to be and then live in to the picture as if it were already true
  1. Like attracts like. You are a magnet. Whatever you are, you attract it to you. If you see it in your mind, you can hold it in your hand.
  2. Ask, believe, receive. You don’t have to know how to achieve your goal. All you need to do is ask, believe and receive.
  3. Gratitude is a powerful process. Believe and I will show you. You must show gratitude for where you are. If you show gratitude, it will take you to where you want to be quicker.
  4. Laughter attracts joy and releases negativity.

Be cautious of the words, thoughts, feelings and actions you engage.

Motto: “Yes, you can.”

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. 12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. 13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. Jeremiah‬ ‭29‬:‭11-13‬

Labyrinth hide and seek
Sarah : who is that man behind the mask
Jareth: now you see me now you don’t
Sarah : where did he go
Jareth : I am behind the fan I see you
Sarah : I must know who he is i must find him where is he
Jareth : I am here is it me you are looking for
Jareth : Shall we dance

Does the road wind up-hill all the way?
Yes, to the very end.
Will the day’s journey take the whole long day?
From morn to night, my friend.

But is there for the night a resting place?
A roof for when the slow dark hours begin.
May not the darkness hide it from my face?
You cannot miss that inn.

Shall I meet other wayfarers at night?
Those who have gone before.
Then must I knock, or call when just in sight?
They will not keep you standing at that door.

Shall I find comfort, travel-sore and weak?
Of labour you shall find the sum.
Will there be beds for me and all who seek?
Yea, beds for all who come.
—  Up-Hill, Christina Rossetti.

Good Morning good people of 31Women! If you recognize the style of this post, you must recognize the author :) Anna’s back! I had to take a small break to handle finals, faith struggles, et Cetera et Cetera. This week’s post is for those who cannot seem to let God be God! Or those, who are like me, that are afraid to let go of plans and schedules to let God do his will. Below are 10 ways, this week, that can help you LET GO and Let God. Shall we begin?

  1. Dive into the Word and don’t get by with the crumbs of commentary.
  2. Find a new friend, or learn more about an old friend, who loves Christ.
  3. Dedicate one day to praying earnestly to God.
  4. Invest in a prayer journal or find a prayer buddy.
  5. Write down a bible text this week and post it all over your house.
  6. When you write this week’s plans, pray over them.
  7. If habits are holding you back, research their future implications.
  8. Every time you seek validation read Psalm 139:14.
  9. Try to listen to a gospel/Christian playlist every day this week.
  10. Challenge yourself to find God’s grace in everything that happens this week.

And then some…

I understand that all of this is easier said than done, but if we make an honest attempt at even one of these, the rest will follow. Sometimes many of us love to wallow in pity because the devil hands us pity on a silver platter. However, God wants us to reach out for hope and contentment. It’s within our reach, but in order to grab it, we must first ask God to pass it closer to us. That can only happen if you communicate with God daily.

Today I want you to say this prayer with me: Dear God, please help me to let go of my past and troubles and to depend on only you. I know this will be hard, but please give me strength and courage. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
