A glimpse of Shinsou’s past hidden in his theme song?

Okay……. I must warn you that this theory is kind of…. scary. BUT HEAR ME OUT!!

The official BNHA season 2 OST came out and I just had to look for Shinsou’s theme……….  And I found it. And let me tell you…………….. 

It’s creepy as hell.

I mean. There’s a constant humming in the background, some laughing and screaming sounds that seems to come from children?? And clock noises too….

Here is the song ( You can listen to it and come back or read this at the same time if you want ) :

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuTwBgKpUVQ&feature=youtu.be

I got curious and translated the title of the OST ‘’ Yonaka Ni Kiku To Kowai ‘

And that’s when all the piece came together.

Yonaka Ni Kiku To Kowai means something like:

‘’ I am scared when I hear it in the middle of the night. ‘’

The ‘’ I ‘’ here…. Is Shinsou.

Shinsou is scared when he hears ‘’it’’ in the middle of the night… 

‘’ It ‘’ is all the noises you hear in the song. The laughing children, the whispers, the bloody screams… That’s what he hears everytime he tries to sleep. The voices from his past.. And because of them, he just cannot sleep. That’s where his bags comes from.

The humming in the background must be his mother’s lullaby. Because he wouldn’t be able to sleep at night, she would sing him to sleep. Her voice would cover the voices in his head…. 

Hope you enjoyed this little theory :’3

Catholicism

The Catholic Church, also known as the Roman Catholic Church, is one of the largest religions, with more than 1.29 billion members worldwide. Catholic doctrine is authoritatively summarised in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC). Sadly the Catholic Church is full of false doctrine that is contrary to the Word of God.

Salvation:

Roman Catholicism says that heaven is a reward for good works (CCC 1821) and that salvation is obtained through observing the commandments (CCC 2068; 2070, 2036)

  • “In every circumstance, each one of us should hope, with the grace of God, to persevere ‘to the end’ and to obtain the joy of heaven, as God’s eternal reward for the good works accomplished with the grace of Christ,” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1821).
  • the Second Vatican Council confirms: 'The bishops, successors of the apostles, receive from the Lord…the mission of teaching all peoples, and of preaching the Gospel to every creature, so that all men may attain salvation through faith, Baptism and the observance of the Commandments,’“ (CCC, par 2068).
  • “The authority of the Magisterium extends also to the specific precepts of the natural law because their observance, demanded by the Creator, is necessary for salvation,” (CCC 2036).

This is a clear rejection of the teaching of salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.

  • For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law.(Rom. 3:28).
  • For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness.”(Rom. 4:3).
  • However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as righteousness. (Rom. 4:5).
  • For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.” (Gal. 3:10).
  • "For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all,” (James 2:10).

As we can see from Scripture, we are made right before God without the law. This means that our salvation is based on faith alone as Romans 4:5 clearly tells us: “However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as righteousness.” Because of the Roman Catholic church’s teaching on salvation by works, which is rejected by Scripture with a warning, (Galatians 5:4). Roman Catholicism must be considered a false religion since it clearly contradicts Scripture.

Mary:

Mary holds a very high position in the Roman Catholic Church, so much so that she is like a goddess. According to Roman Catholicism, Mary is:

  • “The all-holy ever-virgin Mother of God” (CCC 721)
  • The “Queen over all things” (CCC 966)
  • Our “Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix” (CCC 969)
  • She is “full of grace” (CCC 722)
  • The “Mother of God and our mother” (CCC 2677)
  • The “new Eve” (CCC 726)
  • The “seat of wisdom” (CCC 721)
  • Marry had no original sin (CCC 508), and never committed sin (CCC 493)
  • She is second only to her Son" (Vatican II, Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, par. 66)
  • She sits “on the right hand of the majesty on high” (Pope Pius X, Ad Diem Illum Laetissimum, 14)
  • It was Mary who “crushed the poisonous head of the most cruel serpent and brought salvation to the world” (Pope Pius IX, Ineffabilis Deus)
  • It is Mary who “delivers our souls from death” (CCC 966)
  • It is Marry who we are to be  "praying to" (CCC 2679), and have devotion to (CCC 971).

These things are ridiculous and are outside of scripture. “Do not go beyond what is written.” (1 Cor. 4:6). Has the Roman Catholic Church gone beyond what is written in scripture with its teaching about Mary?  Absolutely, yes! Roman Catholics all over the world offer prayers to Mary on a regular basis and expect her to hear them and intercede for them with God and Jesus. This is sad because the Bible nowhere instructs believers in Christ to pray to anyone other than God. Only God can hear our prayers and only God can answer our prayers. The Roman Catholic church basically worships Mary.  The Bible is absolutely clear though that we are to worship God alone. (Luke 4:8,  Exodus 20:3) When Roman Catholics are accused or worshiping Mary and the saints, they normally say they do not “worship” Mary or saints, but rather that they only “venerate” them.  Using a different word does not change the essence of what is being done though. There is no instruction in the Bible to revere those who have gone to heaven. We are to follow their example, yes, but worship, revere, or venerate, no! When Roman Catholics are praying and worshiping to Marry they are commuting idolatry.

Purgatory

  • CCC 1030, “All who die in Gods grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation, but after death they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven.”
  • CCC 1031, “The Church gives the name Purgatory to this final purification of the elect, which is entirely different from the punishment of the damned. The Church formulated her doctrine of faith on Purgatory especially at the Councils of Florence and Trent. The tradition of the Church, by reference to certain texts of Scripture, speaks of a cleansing fire:
  • CCC 1475, "In the communion of saints, "a perennial link of charity exists between the faithful who have already reached their heavenly home, those who are expiating their sins in purgatory and those who are still pilgrims on earth. Between them, there is, too, an abundant exchange of all good things.” In this wonderful exchange, the holiness of one profits others, well beyond the harm that the sin of one could cause others. Thus recourse to the communion of saints lets the contrite sinner be more promptly and efficaciously purified of the punishments for sin.

There are 4 problems with purgatory:

  1. It is not explicitly found in the Bible.
  2. It implies that the righteousness of Christ does not cleanse from all sin.
  3. It implies that justification is not by faith alone.
  4. It implies that there is something we must do in order to be cleansed of sin.

Ultimately purgatory is an unbiblical doctrine and should not be excepted by anyone.

The Communion elements become the actual body and blood of Christ (Known as transubstantiation)

  • CCC 1374, “In the most blessed sacrament of the Eucharist "the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ and, therefore, the whole Christ is truly, really, and substantially contained.”
  • CCC 1376, “The Council of Trent summarizes the Catholic faith by declaring: "Because Christ our Redeemer said that it was truly his body that he was offering under the species of bread, it has always been the conviction of the Church of God, and this holy Council now declares again, that by the consecration of the bread and wine there takes place a change of the whole substance of the bread into the substance of the body of Christ our Lord and of the whole substance of the wine into the substance of his blood. This change the holy Catholic Church has fittingly and properly called transubstantiation.”

If the elements were changed and were really the body and blood of Christ, then why does Paul refer to the element of bread as bread and not the literal body of Christ in 1 Corinthians 11:23-28?  It should be obvious to anyone who believes the word of God that the Roman Catholic doctrine of transubstantiation is not biblical and it is just plain stupid.

The Pope is the head of the church and has the authority of Christ:

  • CCC 2034, “The Roman Pontiff and the bishops are 'authentic teachers, that is, teachers endowed with the authority of Christ, who preach the faith to the people entrusted to them, the faith to be believed and put into practice.’ The ordinary and universal Magisterium of the Pope and the bishops in communion with him teach the faithful the truth to believe, the charity to practice, the beatitude to hope for.”

The Roman Catholic teaching about the office of the pope should be rejected because it is not biblical. It is ridiculous to think any can have the authority of Christ. The Pope should never be followed, The Pope is the head of a false church that is opposed to the true gospel of salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. If anyone preaches a different gospel then they should be avoided at all cost. (Galatians 1:8-9).

Can Roman Catholics be saved?

 Yes, there are plenty of Roman Catholics that are truly saved. But Roman Catholicism teaches works’ righteousness and because it does, anyone who seeks salvation in the Roman Catholic system will hardly ever find salvation. So, if any Roman Catholics wants salvation they must repent of the false doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church and trust in Christ alone by faith alone for the forgiveness of his or her sins. There is no other way. Salvation is found only by believing the gospel that Jesus died for our sins, was buried and rose from the dead. This message is received by faith alone, and we can add no works to what Christ has done. This is why the Bible says we are justified by faith (Romans 5:1) without the works of the law (Ephesians 2:8).

If you’re a Catholic, do you know for sure if you are going to heaven when you die?  I can say that I know I am going to heaven.  This isn’t arrogance.  It is confidence in the work of Christ and not my own work.  It is confidence in the ability of Jesus to save me completely, to have fulfilled all of the Law perfectly, and to have cleansed me from my sin totally.  Therefore, because all my hope and trust are in Him and not what I can do, I know I am going to heaven.  If my salvation depended on my goodness and abilities in any way, then I can’t have any confidence that I will make it to heaven because I am a wretched sinner.  But God is perfect and requires holiness (1 Pet. 1:16).  This is why God provided Jesus who fulfilled the Law (Matt. 5:17). Jesus did everything that is necessary for us to do.  This is why we should trust Jesus alone and not Jesus and our goodness or Jesus and our church or Jesus and our ability to love God and our neighbor. We should trust Jesus and Jesus alone.   But, what about you?  Do you have that confidence?  If not, perhaps it is because of the requirements that the Roman Catholic Church has put on you.  The Roman Catholic Church is wrong and if you want to be truly saved then all you have to do is to put your faith in Jesus Christ there are no works involved.

The compass – Lee Ho San (English Translation).


Waded through brilliant light breaking the morning

Glided over the starlight illuming the evening

Then I was met with clouds yet to be adventured

And I was lost with my directions unanswered

I made my loneliness my makeshift friend

And I unraveled heaven’s map

Round and round the compass ran, and it whispered to me.

North is where you go

Where your childhood dream brushed away is where you belong

South is where you go

Where your first loss of love befell is where you belong

West is where you go

There I can see you waiting long

Then I stopped

From here and on

No more can I go.

Your message awakened the morning

Our calls lightened the evening

My head would feel this happiness is mirage of thin air

My steps would refuse to take me there

I made agony my momentary friend

And I rewound back to my past

Round and round the compass ran, and it whispered to me.

North is where you go

Where your childhood dream brushed away is where you belong

South is where you go

Where your first loss of love befell is where you belong

West is where you go

There I can see you waiting long

Then I stopped

From here and on

No more can I go.

I raced endlessly south

To see how bad it hurts. But you know what…?

The sun was but an empty globe

The compass was but within me all along. Oh—

North is where you go

Where you sealed your childhood trauma is where you belong

South is where you go

Where your past love and obsession lie is where you belong

West is where you go

There you’re still waiting long

Then I stopped

From here and on

To you is where I go.

More than you can imagine

hey guys! i’m finally posting again! sorry for the long wait but school got super sttressful with finals and such. however, it’s summer break so I wrote up a quick fic for my love, Shawn Mendes. hope y’all enjoy it! feel free to send in requests!! 

******************************************************

          It was more than just rain, it was a storm. Wind whipping against the windows, thunder shaking the ground, and lightning causing the lights in my apartment to flickr. I had the entire day planned out, dressed and ready to go, when the sudden storm came barrelling in. I refused to let the gloomy weather ruin my delightful mood. I had been waiting for this day for the last six months, counting down every second of everyday. My lovely boyfriend Shawn followed his dreams on a year long tour and finally has a break to come home. I decorated our shared apartment with welcome home banners and stocked the cabinets with his favorite snacks. I was ecstatic to see him again and eventually join him on the second half of his tour now that my finals are over. I awaited Shawn’s arrival yet it grew later and later with still no sign of my boyfriend. My phone chimed with a text from the man of the hour that read, “Hey darling, my plane was delayed an hour and traffic getting out of the airport is insane. I’ll be home as soon as I can. Can’t wait to see you baby!”. My worries melted away as I knew that he was safe and everything was okay. I rested on the couch, aimlessly watching tv and playing games on my phone. Time passed and I found myself growing sleepier and sleepier. Eventually, the sound of the rain smacking my windows lulled me to sleep.

    I pulled from my sleep by a tugging on my foot and a low mumbling. I opened my eyes to find myself no longer on the couch but laying on top of my bed. Propping up onto my elbows, I glanced down to see a familiar curly brown haired boy yanking my shoe of my foot.

      “Shawn?” I muttered, rubbing sleep from my eyes, “When did you get home?”. He poked his head up at the sound of my voice and he sent me a gentle smile.  

      “Hey sweetheart. I got home a little bit ago.” he ran his hand up and down my shin, “Lay back down hun, get some rest.” I shook my head, sitting up and stopping him from taking off my other shoe.

       “No, no, no I can’t. I had everything planned. Today was supposed to be fun and we were supposed to do all your favorite things. We have to, come on, let’s go.” I rambled, trying to get up and put my show on. Shawn simply shook his head and leaning over to softly push me back down. When I tried to refuse again, he simply did the same thing.

       “Nope, no stressing. I’m home for two weeks, that is plenty of time to do everything and right now we can sleep. Now, let’s get changed into something comfy.” he explained, squatting down once more and pulling off my other shoe. I recently agreed and sat up then followed Shawn toward the closet. He reached in a pulled out a pair of his sweatpants and one of his tshirts. He handed me the shirt and keep the pants for himself. Slowly, we changed into comfy clothes. Shawn discarded his top and wore only a pair of grey sweatpants. I changed into Shawn’s shirt which was rather big on my body and fit like a dress. I decided that was enough and didn’t wear any pants which was normal for me. Shawn approached me and kissed me on top of the head.

        “Let’s head to bed baby. I had a long day and missed falling asleep with you in my arms more than anything.” he whispered, pulling me close. I grinned at his words, resting my head against his bare shoulder as his hands ran up and down my back.

      “You have no idea how much I missed you.” I whispered, reaching my hands behind his neck and playing with his curls. He hummed at my words and just smiled back.

       “Oh darling, I don’t think you understand. Tour was fun and all but god, I could not stop thinking about you. All I wanted to do was come running home to you and our little apartment.” he whispered back, pressing a kiss on the top of my head. My face flushed pink at his confession. “Now let’s go lay down” he said. We pulled apart and shuffled to our separate sides of the bed. I wiggled under the covers as Shawn did the same. Once we were comfortable in the bed, we rolled to face each others.

     “Welcome back cuddles?” I asked, lightly giggling. Shawn only smiled and opened his arms as wide as possible. I shuffled over and laid my head against his chest while his arms wrapped around me, pulling me closer. He hummed contently in my ear.

     “Man, I swear I missed this the most. This is the life.” he sighed gleefully. His fingers ran up and down my back, creating that blissful feeling I craved while he was away on tour. “Now, let’s get some sleep babe.”.

     “That sounds amazing. Goodnight, I love you.” I whispered, glancing up to look at Shawn. He looked so peaceful smiling down at me. He leaned down and pressed a soft kiss to my lips, a kiss I had missed more than words can describe.

       “I love you more darling.”.

Star Wars worlds : Ilum
The planet Ilum was situated in the Ilum system, a star system located in a region of the Unknown Regions known as the 7G sector. Ilum was an arctic world; that is, the entire planet was covered in ice and snow, and was therefore inhospitable to most species. Hidden beneath Ilum’s frigid surface is what came to be known as the Crystal Caves. Within the maze-like Crystal caves grew kyber crystals, which brought the Jedi Order to Ilum, so they could harvest the crystals in a rite of passage known as the Gathering, in which Jedi initiates harvested their crystals by attuning themselves to the Force. As such, Illum was a holy site for the Jedi Order for centuries.

So recently I’ve noticed myself creating really interesting sentences where none of the words are from the same language. Usually they’re not too long, 3-4 word phrases, but it’s still very strange. The most notable two so far-


“Que عندي holnap?” - Spanish Arabic Hungarian - lit. what at-me tomorrow - “What do I have tomorrow?”

“Varför valde تعبانة vagyok?” - Swedish Latin Arabic Hungarian - lit. why very tired.fem be.me - “Why am I so tired?”


And it’s really interesting the way my brain is willing to structure and create phrases like these in my head without any additional prompting.

One of my favourite documented curses is:

“Hic non defectus est, sed cattus minxit desuper nocte quadam. Confundatur pessimus cattus qui minxit super librum istum in nocte Daventrie, et consimiliter omnes alii propter illum. Et cavendum valde ne permittantur libri aperti per noctem ubi cattie venire possunt.”

[Here is nothing missing, but a cat urinated on this during a certain night. Cursed be the pesty cat that urinated over this book during the night in Deventer and because of it many others [other cats] too. And beware well not to leave open books at night where cats can come.]

Cologne, Historisches Archiv, G.B. quarto, 249, fol. 68r

A Deventer scribe, writing around 1420, found his manuscript ruined by a urine stain left there by a cat the night before. He was forced to leave the rest of the page empty, drew a picture of a cat and cursed it. Cursed it and then made a realisation about his own involvement in his frustration. Rage to self-awareness in the time of a scrawl XD.
