Killian and Carey are the only ones to have survived so far. Julia was taken from Magnus, . Merle is divorced, but still clearly pining for, his abusive? Ex. Kravitz and Taako are stuck on separate planes. Hurley and Sloane become a tree. And Lup DIES and Barry becomes a LITCH to try and find her.
Please, I know most relationships fail in the real world but I just want my boys & girls to be loved 😢
After taking the Drink of The Gods, what is experienced on the inside is not always a reflection of what is experienced on the outside. Ivar has since passed out and you worry about what he saw might bring for you and your people.
It was your thirteenth birthday, the celebration ending in the traditional way, with your first received prophecy.
You’d practiced night and day the motion to gutting the bird from breast to belly in the smoothest, most merciful way. Your mother told you to think long and hard on a God to mark as your own and you chose Morrigan, the Great trio of war sisters, the bloodied Morrígna.
For the Saxon’s their world was peace and farming, and eradicating your people. They caught men, women, and children of the druidic following when they were alone and vulnerable, claiming them demons and witches, hunting down entire villages and denying their own ancestors once followed and praised the same gods. The druid’s blood ran in their veins and it always would no matter how much they would fight it.
So you needed strength. You needed fire and metal and blood to keep the old ways alive, no more hiding and being purged from the Earth they worshiped. Only with the combined Morrígna
by your side could that happen, and they were hard women to please.
The Overdue Rant about Civil War (Alternately: Fight me, son!)
I was reading a fanfic and a comment was congratulating the author on Bucky’s portrayal
in the first chapter. That, I had no problem with. My Problem was when the
commenter claimed that Tony in CACW essentially “came out smelling like roses”
To which I started this, a reply that never got posted:
How exactly did Tony come out smelling like roses?
1) His best friend was crippled.
2) He lost his girlfriend
3) Not sure where the story with Nat is going, but he
essentially was betrayed a second time by her
4) The government is breathing down his neck
5) And he was basically left in Siberia to die. It
doesn’t matter that an SOS might have been automatically sent when the suit
deactivates. At no point in the movie is Steve told this. He ASSUMED, which is
a dangerous thing to do when you leave one of the smartest men in the world,
injured, in a base (that is clearly still active) owned by one of the most
dangerous terrorist organizations in the world. Steve is an American soldier.
No man left behind was and still is a motto that’s lived by. He should know
Not to mention the shield. Steve shoves a metal disk
through armor into Tony’s chest. Bucky tries to crush him by pressing on his
chest. This is a man with a damaged chest, and several INCHES of METAL keeping
him alive for several years. Extremis or not, Tony’s chest is still a mess
against a normal fighter, let alone a man with that kind of strength.
I get it. Bucky is a victim, and this story is doing a
good job telling his story. But I don’t believe that Bucky would be so angry
against Tony. Look at Bucky’s face vs Steve’s while Tony’s watching the video.
While Bucky’s feeling guilty, Steve is just closing himself off. He doesn’t
want to deal with the fallout of his own decisions. This is a guy who, if he
didn’t know, at least SUSPECTED Bucky’s part in one of his benefactor’s murder.
Not to mention everything before that. Did we forget that Bucky nearly dropped
a tunnel to escape? Victim or not, Bucky still killed people, or nearly killed
people. He is dangerous, and he knows that, accepts it. What about all those
officers sent to apprehend him? As far as they know, they are being sent on a
dangerous mission to apprehend a legendary super-assassin. Of course they go
in, guns blazing, especially since they encounter not one, but TWO super
soldiers in the apartment, then a third in the form of a car-jumping Black
Panther. What does Cap do? Instead of holding Bucky down, or knocking him out,
and blocking the bullets with his BULLETPROOF shield, he tears through them
like a wrecking ball, hurling his shield at them, throwing them down stairs, and
punching them in the chest. If some of them weren’t crippled in real life, it
would be a miracle.
I’m not trying to hate on Steve. But I do hate it when
people look at Tony and say, “He’s an ass, he’s a failure, he made Ultron, he’s
the villain.” If you acknowledge that Tony’s an ass, you also have to remember
how judgmental Steve can be, because, let’s face it, Steve was totally
comparing Tony to Howard and Bucky in the first Avengers movie.
If Tony has failed, you also got to remember the
questionable judgment calls Steve’s made—who lets a former Hydra guinea pig on
a super powered team without any sort of therapy, or mental screening, or grace
period? The same woman who DIRECTLY unleashes the Hulk on a populated city. The
same woman who OBSESSES about a man because his name was on the missile (that
was probably a dud, because when does Starktech fail)? Tony didn’t push the
button that launched it. That’s like going after the CEO of the Mars Company
because your kid chokes to death on an M&M.
If you remember that Tony made Ultron, you also got to
remember that Bruce was right there with him. BRUCE. The man who KNOWS how
dangerous some untested technology can be, but is right there working with Tony
(not hating on Bruce, because SCIENCE BROS!). And what is the reason Tony is
working so hard to unlock these secrets? Because a little witch tampered with
his mind. The same witch, who again, only bothered to switch sides when it
occurred to her that maybe mass murder wasn’t that great once it’s right in
front of you. So yeah, Tony made Ultron…along with Bruce, Wanda, Pietro and
Thor (who by the way, CHOKES Tony, a mortal…and is stopped by no one), who
considering how often he’s telling the team about how mortals aren’t ready for
the wider universe, and how primitive they are, is still ready to let Tony
tamper with the magical Stick of Destiny. And yet Steve—along with the whole
team—somehow forgets this. And Steve freaks out about how he has to save his
best friend, and go with him “‘till the end of the line”, but everyone ignores
the fact JARVIS, TONY’S best friend (and practically his son) dies, and no one
but Bruce bats an eyelid.
If you think Tony is a villain, you also have to
remember where Steve started from. Steve was desperate to join the army and his
best friend, to do something worthwhile. There’s nothing wrong with that. But
he continually lies to get the army, even though he can barely do exercises
without dying. Now I understand that the condition of Steve’s body is not his
fault and the guys he trains with are hammed up to be jerks and the whole thing
is supposed to an underdog story. But everything Steve does only proves he’s a
danger to himself and everyone around him. He jumps on a grenade, which
everyone else jumps away from. It’s supposed to a moment that proves how good
and self-sacrificial he is. All it does is show how suicidal Steve could be.
Granted, his sense of self-worth is probably full of holes at this point, and
so I can understand how he may feel the best use of his time and body is to
ensure no shrapnel hits his teammates. Okay. That sucks for him, and he really
did need some help. BUT. That suicidal tendency makes him a danger to his
teammates. In a real battlefield, Steve would be the type to stand his ground
against enemy fire while everyone is retreating. That would heroic, except for
the fact that he would not last long at all, and his team would KNOW THIS, and
someone(s) would probably stay behind to either fight with him or try to save
him and get killed themselves because Steve DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO CONCEDE, which
is all well and good, until someone other than himself gets hurt.
Not to mention he doesn’t seem to be able to predict
long-term consequences. He orders the Widow Leaks, and yet we barely see him
mention the fallout later. Not the fallout of SHEILD = HYDRA. I mean the
fallout of hundreds of agents having their covers blown, probably while in
hostile territory, and thousands of people who now don’t have a job, because
they devoted all of themselves to SHEILD, and probably don’t have much in the
way of safe-houses, family or friends. And yet all we seem to get out of Steve
is the fact that HYDRA is active and thus all must be destroyed, even the ones
who worked for them unknowingly. Like, you couldn’t have had it sent to Tony
and his uber AI, and had them separate friend from foe, and not leave a gaping
hole in the world’s protection? This lack of foresight, and unwillingness to
correct it, despite being constantly warned about it, makes him just as much a villain
as Tony will ever be.
is the debut EP album by band Violator, continuing on the typical Old School Thrash Metal style that the group has played since it was formed.
Since the beginning Violator showed a lot of potential. After waiting four years for a new LP since Chemical Assault i hoped that the awaiting will be justified. glad that Violator did not disappoint in their mission to keep thrash metal alive and at full speed.
30 years ago today Cliff Burton tragically died in a bus accident in Sweden. He was only 24 and already one of the best bass players out there. RIP Cliff, your spirit lives on in our hearts through your music and through your friends who are keeping your memory alive!

part 6a - 6b |
thanks to the outpouring of support, this came a lot quicker than it would have otherwise! engage: obi-wan’s ruckus youth.
little monster makes friends with the Gungan because of course he
does: they have so much in common. At least it will be easier to keep
track of them if they insist on being in the same general area; it’s
much more difficult to overlook two meters of red amphibian than it
is one meter of padawan that tends to wander off when it isn’t hiding
behind Qui-Gon’s voluminous robes.
at least doesn’t distract Jar Jar while Jar Jar pilots the sub, but
he hardly needs to. The local wildlife seems eager to interfere;
Anakin considers that they might have tried asking for a more
experienced guide, given that Jar Jar is barely adolescent. The
answer almost certainly would have been ‘no,’ but they could have at
Munakata: Ruruka, I’m going to be blunt. You didn’t do shit against Ultimate Despair, why the hell are you 8th Division Head? We could have just merged your department with Bandai’s and have him run all food efforts. I mean, can you even fight?
Ruruka: I can totally fight! I can name a Future Foundation Head that I could beat up without a sweat.
Munakata: Izayoi lets you win and Mitarai doesn’t count. An aggravated new-born puppy could beat up Mitarai.
Ruruka: Why does he get to be Head of 10th Division then? Is his job really that important? I’m helping with the food supply.
Munakata: Education is very important and I doubt that an Ultimate Confectioner should be in charge of all food groups.
Ruruka: Well, I doubt that anime’s all that important to education and culture! It’s stupid.
Munakata: Anime is an important part of our culture. Get out of my office immediately.
I am not the kind of reviewer who gives a blow-by-blow comment on each individual track. I think others have done that well enough in their reviews, so I will spare the details of my opinion. those are Solid Heavy Metal Albums, well worth the money :P , Highly recommended for any Heavy Metal fan. see you next year. KEEP THE METAL ALIVE!!!!
