- Umbacano and his bullshit treasure hunt-

-The wonderful endless source of bullshit and pain that is the Falmer-

-Mannimarco-

-Literally the entire plot of Morrowind-

- The Thalmor/Aldmeri Dominion-

-The fact that Psijic Robes are not available as a clothing item in Skyrim-

- Dwemer Ruins-

Now Is the Time

‘We’re always in some kind of mood. It might be sadness, it might be anger, it might be not much of anything, just a kind of blur. It might be humor or contentment. In any case, whatever it is, that’s the path.

When something hurts in life, we don’t usually think of it as our path or as the source of wisdom. In fact, we think that the reason we’re on the path is to get rid of this painful feeling. In this way, we naively cultivate a subtle aggression against ourselves. However, the fact is that anyone who has used the moments, days, and years of his or her life to become wiser, kinder, and more at home in the world has learned from what’s happening right now. We can aspire to be kind right in the moment, to relax and open our heart and mind to what is in front of us right in the moment. Now is the time. If there’s any possibility for enlightenment, it’s right now, not at some future time.’

What does the text say in the background of the most recent update?

It started off serious and then slowly degraded.

“Said to have been born from pain and misery, the Unicorn King might not have even been a Unicorn. Indeed, it was fabled that he was actually of dragon blood- the unholy union of pony and beast. Records indicate that he was always clad in battle dress. Armor, a cape, a crown. But what was that hiding? Sources say that underneath that cape hid a dark and terrible secret… namely that he was actually a dragon, and hid his terrible bat wings underneath his cloak. Sounds feasible, right? It probably is. We’re pretty sure that part is fact. Stories were passed down from generation to generation on the size of his schnoz. It was hella big. Like, really unnaturally large. Because he was a DRAGON?? yes.”

Let’s resume some facts.

Castiel did everything that he did for one human. In fact, it was always about Dean Winchester because saving him is his goal. It’s not to be surprised that he gave up an entire army for one guy, his true weakness being: being in love.. with humanity.

Dean dies, Castiel’s on the verge of crying and says that he only wants to be an Angel. He then confirms in s10 that being an Angel, a Demon, is easier, for only human can feel real joy and such profound pain. When a great source of joy is taken away from you, leaving only pain, how could you wish to be human when you could be something else?

Colette is Cain’s love. She’s the one that knew who he was and forgave him still. She watched over him, always. She’s the reason he was able to stop killing for a while.

Jared confirms that the Colette/Castiel parallel is intentional.

Castiel is Dean’s love. He’s the one that knows who he is and forgives him still. He watches over him, always. He’s (part of) the reason he was able to stop killing for a while. Or will he?

Dean says that the people who love him, meaning Sam and Castiel, brought him back (from demonhood).

Dean confesses that there’s people (feelings.. people that he has feelings for?) he wants to experience differently… or even for the first time. The Priest suggests he goes a little deeper, meaning he should perhaps fall in love, romantic love, even though he isn’t (or wasn’t?) really with the whole love and… love.

Rob & Twigs are engaged

Yesterday Vulture, a cultural division of NY Magazine interviewed the musician T-Pain, who is an old friend of Twigs (she calls him “Uncle T-Pain). He let it slip that Rob and Twigs are engaged. A couple of hours after the news spread like wildfire, he posted a note on his Instagram saying he was just joking for April Fools. The editor at Vulture says he had no idea the interview was going to run on April 1st, so she doesn’t believe it was a joke.

Subsequently, People magazine said they have two sources and that Rob and Twigs are in fact engaged. Gossip Cop ran with that, giving it an 8 out of 10 for credibility, and today both E! and US Weekly says they have also confirmed that the engagement is real. So far there has been no denial from anyone.

So I’m going with it. If it’s not true, that will probably come out when Twigs performs at Coachella on April 12th. She always does interviews at festivals, so I’m sure someone will ask her. Whether she answers or not is her prerogative. (Everyone picked up the story, from Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar to Marie Claire and Buzzfeed.)
