New context of Lunar Interlude 3
  • Merle: *is a happy fun loving cleric that wants to spread peace through the planarverse and makes the world he visits better*
  • Merle: *inspires Lucretia to be a better person*
  • Merle: *actually takes an interest in the work Lucretia does and works to help her with it whenever possible*
  • Lucretia: *erases Merle’s memories of the good he has done throughout so many realities*
  • *several years later*
  • Merle: *invites Lucretia on a spa date to bond*
  • Lucretia: “So Merle, how do you manage to keep the faith? Seeing all this stuff how do you manage to stay so inspirational?”
  • Merle: “All of it is overcompensation. I hate everyone, don’t think I actually offer anything to the team and am just a burden, have never done any good in the world, and am not entirely convinced these gods even exist at this point.”
  • Lucretia: *downs a MASSIVE GOBLET OF WINE realizing what she has done*
Jensen’s speech about YANA from JIBCon 2017

JENSEN

This was kinda what got me, was… So, signing autographs—and some of you guys were probably a part of the situation—I don’t know if you remember when Misha walked up with her (points to fan who volunteers with the crisis line) and said, “Hey, she’s one of the counselors that is part of what we set up.” I hadn’t actually… that hadn’t been personified for me yet. So I spoke to you for a brief second, and it was something like… was it fifty hours? Right? Could you stand up?

(cheers, applause)

JENSEN

Fifty hours you’d spent on the phone. And she walked away, and… that hit me. That that was fifty hours…

It’s hitting me now. Shit.

That something that was spawned out of this (gestures to crowd), and out of this (gestures between himself and Misha)… could help people to that degree, to where there was a verified person to counsel somebody, or people, for that amount of time, and she was one of them. And I know that there’s many of them. It hit me hard.

And I get to look at you, and I get to see you guys, and I know you all have a story, and I wish I could hear and talk to every one of you at length. I don’t have that opportunity, but knowing that something that I was a part of helped create that… that betters people, and inspires people to be a better person… Because—and Jared shared this with me—he’s like, “No one can help you but yourself. You are the only person that can help yourself. But if you get inspired by something, if something touches you and inspires you and makes you believe something that then helps you help yourself, then that’s important.” And she’s doing important things. And the fact that I was a small molecule of a being that helped many people…

I don’t know. It hit me really, really hard. And I had to take a… I had to take a breather. I had to take a knee. And so I went upstairs to Daniela’s room—she was like, “You need to come upstairs,” and I’m like (crying voice) “Yeah, I think I do.”

(laughter, cheers, applause)

JENSEN

All right, all right…

I remember walking up to her room… I didn’t make it. So I held out for maybe like 70 more autographs. I was like, (mimics signing fast while holding back emotions) “Mmmph… thank you. Mmmph, thank you. Mmmphhhh, thank you. Ffffffffff aaahhhhh—“

MISHA

He was very flatulent during that time.

(laughter)

JENSEN

Yes. That was just the gas.

Then we were walking, and I was like, “Nope, nope, you’re not gonna make it to the elevator.” And I just sat there, and Jared just, like, grabbed me and hugged me… It was like, one of those moments where it’s like… This shouldn’t exist. Like, from a point of view that is, like, a television show, actor/fan relationship, this probably shouldn’t exist. It exists, guys. We feel you. And you mean a shit ton to us. You really do.

(cheers, applause)


transcribed from here

@therealjacksepticeye: Seán, thank you for giving me one of the best birthdays ever.  I didn’t even tell you my name (Jenn) and I feel like I didn’t get to properly convey just how important it was for me to meet you, nor did I get to tell even a fraction of my story, (hence why I wrote a letter).  Your positive outlook on life has inspired me to be a better person, both towards myself and others.  It is my hope that if I get a chance to meet you again next year, I’ll be in much better physical condition and won’t need a cane to walk.

Also, I’m so sorry that you’re sick with the PAX Plague and I hope you have a speedy recovery from it!

How to Stay Peaceful Around Stressed People

When we’re around people who are stressed and negative it can upset our own sense of inner peace and calm. Here are some suggestions to help you with this:

1. Imagine there’s an invisible shield that separates you from them. See their attitudes, reactions and high expectations as being their choice and decision- they’re not a part of you. You are two separate people – don’t let them influence you.

2. Disconnect from the source of negativity. End the call, close your email, or get up and walk away. When we feel stressed and angry we’re more likely to react – so maintain your control by taking steps to decompress.

3. Avoid toxic people if you possibly can. Avoid people who guilt trip you, or are constantly complaining, or who like to sit in wallow in their misery. They’ll quickly drain your energy and drive you to despair.

4. Be a positive person. Go on the offensive and reach out to people who need some encouragement, a smile or a kind word. That will keep you feeling peaceful and positive.

5. Spend time with people with whom you can connect, and who inspire and motivate you to be a better person. Look out for people who improve your self-esteem, who are positive role models and live life to the full. They’ll broaden your capacity to give and grow as well. (So let them be your focus – and not the stressed out people!)

When Taylor calls it’s really awesome because she’s full of so much wisdom. And I didn’t realize until I started becoming really close friends with her… that the way she speaks - she speaks so eloquently - it’s like when you’re talking to her it feels like you’re witnessing a song being created. I mean she speaks in such beautiful words the way she cleverly weaves them together to make a sentence. It makes things so clear for me. She gives me the best advice on my relationships, on my life, on my career. She’s just a really great person. […]

She inspires me to be a better person and when I get to that level, hopefully, one day, I will always think “WWTD” - What Would Taylor Do. I would love to be as nice and kind to every single person I meet as she is. When I see her always she is such a sweet person, she was raised very properly and I just think she’s a gem and I’m so grateful to call her my friend.

Unpopular opinion: Gladio was right to call Noct out on the train

His entire job is to make sure Noct does his kingly duty? He inspires Noct to be a better person? Okay so he shouldn’t have shoved Prompto but Ignis shoves Prompto multiple times in the car when he gets in his face, and no one gets angry at Ignis for that, so… yeah.

I get that Noct was grieving but Gladio’s not his mother, he’s his Shield, and sometimes he has to protect Noct from his own navel gazing.

My dear Oh Sehun,

When I started loving EXO, I took a careful look at all 9 boys, saw you, quiet and shy and a little awkward, and I was intrigued. I thought to myself: “this boy is going to be a unique one,” and I never thought I would love you as much as I do now. You have brought me so much happiness. To me (and to countless other people), you are everything good in a person. I love how you are thoughtful, considerate, caring, and confident yet humble, and you are just so unbelieveably ideal that I genuinely in awe of you and your entire existance. You have a child’s heart, and when I see it shine through your happiness, my heart glows with happiness too. When I see you smile and laugh, I feel my lips slowly stretch into an unconcious smile. It isn’t until my brothers say, “What are you smiling at?” that I realize what I’m doing. I cherish your existance as a sunflower cherishes the sun, and honestly, I wouldn’t be as happy as I am now if I hadn’t decided to love you. You have inspired me to be more compassionate, hardworking (??), and happy, and most of all, you have inspired me to be a better person. And I thank you for that. So much. I adore you, your unique laugh, your eye smile, your humor, your compassion, and I am so proud to say that I stan a person that I can look up to as a person. So please know, Oh Sehun, that your good heart has not only affected me, but thousands of others too. Keep being an inspiration to the world as you are too me, and I love you. happy birthday Sehun ♡♡

In honour of the #dolanbodyposi I decided to make this edit because I’m not confident enough with my body to post pictures of it as of yet.

I’m not the best at editing videos but that’s not the point, the message behind it is what’s important.

These two boys have helped me trough so much and they have no idea. Whenever I feel down I watch their videos and feel better. When everything in my life goes wrong they are the only thing that is right and keeps me going. They inspire me to be a better person and their encouraging words are always going trough my head at all times stopping me from going to a negative place.

I’m so grateful for them and for this little family that we’ve formed on Tumblr.

I love you guys!

In Defence of Madoka Kaname

Madoka Kaname is my favourite anime character, and she’s right up there on my list of favourite fictional characters of all time. And for everything that this magical girl embodies and all the lessons that her story teaches, it’s really quite saddening to constantly see complaints from Puella Magi Madoka Magica fans who seem to have a problem with the series’ protagonist.

Soulmates - Part 2

Prompt: Part 1 here
Warnings: None
Words: 1800+

You race backstage, not taking any time to celebrate this historic moment in your career. You just wanted to find Seth, to know that everything was okay, that he was okay.

“Seth!” You screamed tears streaming down your face. You hadn’t realised you were crying until tears landed on your hands. “Where’s Seth?!”

“Hey y/n calm down. They took him to the hospital around the corner. Everything's fine” Roman said grabbing your shoulders to calm you down.

“Everything’s not fine Roman! It’s black and white!” 

“What?” 

“My vision! It’s black and white again!” you cried as Roman’s eyes went wide. He knew what that meant, so did you, you just didn’t want to believe it. 

“Come on let’s go” Roman said putting his arm around you escorting you to his car. The ride to the hospital was silent beside your heavy breathing. You managed to control your tears but every so often a tear would fall. You couldn’t help it. Roman had barely stopped the car before you jumped out and raced inside, Roman hot on your heels. Pushing doors open, running to the waiting room, dodging doctors, nurses and patients. As you ran into the waiting room, your eyes landed on Dean first. He was sitting with his head in his hands. Hunter was there too with Vince and Stephanie, who looked like she had been crying.

#Sense8InspiresMe

Dear Global Cluster,

Sense8 inspired @a-womans-courage to draw this..

And inspired me to write fanfiction after a year of giving up on writing.

How did Sense8 inspire YOU?

It could be anything: drawing, writing fanfiction, drabbles, headcanon, episode analyses, or poetry. It could be photo editing, or video editing. It could be that Sense8 inspired you to be a better person, or changed your perspective on some things.

It doesn’t have to be something new. It could be something you’ve done, drawn, written, or felt years ago.

Please share with us (Your cluster <3), and everyone else how this inspiration manifested itself. Share your work and thoughts for us to see and appreciate.

Use the tag #Sense8InspiresMe here on Tumblr and on Twitter so we can show others how much this show has touched us all.

When?

Anytime! The point isn’t to get this trending, but to show people how important Sense8 has become to us all, and how it brought out the best in us.

Please reblog so others can see this and take part.

Thank you, Sensies!

Reasons why I love season 2 of supergirl!

- Alex discovering herself and finding someone to be happy with
- James having a story arc that isn’t about a love triangle
- James being a hero
- Winn’s humour quota has been upped
- Winn finding love
- The alien bar giving us a space where aliens can hang out and do normal things like normal people
- Brian
- you don’t really know who ALL the villains are so, ~suspense~ (and the fact that there’s more than one main villain)
- deals with real life issues
- Kara meeting someone who challenges her and them both learning from each other
- Kara finding love in someone she can be herself with
- more information about the different planets from different galaxies, meeting new, quirky and wonderful aliens
- introducing minor characters I care about, then bringing those minor characters back every now and then (like Brian)
- Kara realising that she can have it all - the superhoing and relationships
- Kara learning to put aside her prejudices about Daxam for Mon-El, similar to J'onn learning that there are good white Martians, like Megann
- Sanvers and Karamel doing domestic couple things like cuddling on couches
- a mix of fun villains (and some who aren’t really villains anyway) and the scary villains to keep the show lighthearted and fun to watch while still conveying serious messages
- Winn/Alex brotp
- Mon-El/Winn brotp
- Alex and her gun - Danvers sisters relationship
- Mon-El’s 180 character development arc (not there yet but still well on the way!)
- teaching important lessons about relationships: none of them are perfect, relationships need honesty, all of them have complications, relationships take hard work, and they can inspire you to be a better person, even if you’re not together
- all KARAMEL AND SANVERS moments!
- not one, but TWO crossovers in one season!
- badass fight scenes - reblob and add more of your fave reasons!
