Content: but we will leave this paltry land,
And sail from hence to Greece, to lovely Greece.
I’ll be thy Jason, thou my golden fleece;
Where painted carpets o'er the meads are hurled,
And Bacchus’ vineyards overspread the world;
Where woods and forests go in goodly green,
I’ll be Adonis, thou shalt be Love’s Queen.
—  Christopher Marlowe, The Jew of Malta

‘I serve only the Lord of the Mark, Theoden King, son of Thengel. We do not serve the Power of the Black Land far away, but neither are we yet in open war with him; and if you are fleeing from him, then you had best leave this land. There is trouble now on all our borders, and we are threatened; but we desire only to be free, and to live as we have lived, keeping our own, and serving no foreign lord, good or evil. We welcomed guests kindly in the better days, but in these times the unbidden stranger finds us swift and hard. Come! Who are you? Whom do you serve? At whose command do you hunt Orcs in our land?’

=>You were happily swimming in some more private areas of the beach,and when you say private very few trolls came onto them. It was a nice night, well perfect for swimming, though you did keep thinking about how great it would be to sail, if your crew weren’t on land leave. So you were confused, more than, when you saw a crowd of trolls on the beach when your head was above the water. It did get your attention to say the least so you swam to land and decided to see what was happening.

‘Tis the season for sticky, aphid-riddled tulip tree leaves to land on our balcony and make a nuisance of themselves. I’ve been tossing most of them away without much thought, but when I saw how sweet and tiny this one was, I knew I needed to put it into a photo.

Hi! :) can you do Lon'qu and Gaius reaction to f!mu sacrifice thing?

Gaius

For once, you will be selfish. For once, you’ll break your promise to those that fought by your side. You will trade your life for the millions of others, as long as evil will leave Naga’s lands… You glanced around to catch the ginger hair of your husband, his cape whipping with the wind as he dodged and sliced with his silver sword. He would understand… he always did.

Focusing your attention back on Grima,  you gave a final shout and a flash of lightning ripped through Grima’s chest and she glared at you, her mouth twisting in pain and shock.

“N-NOOOO…” she bellowed, her screech becoming one with the dragon you stood on. 

Her form dematerialized into small particles, which flew at your face, and you smiled from their touch. You heard the sound of Lissa sobbing at Chrom’s side and saw how Chrom shook his head, trying to deny the fact that his best friend will actually be gone, and he put an arm around the young princess to comfort her. Your smile trembled when you heard light footsteps coming your way.

“Bubbles…”

The familiar voice of honey that flowed in your ears and stilled your breath when you looked into a pair of green eyes. The same smile that kept your heart bubbling was struggling to stay fixed on his lips as he walked towards you, and Gaius tilted his head with that small, gentle smile of his. “Piece of cake, eh?” he said, reaching to hold your hand.

You slightly chucked at his words and you glanced curiously at the hand that held yours, feeling a touch that was barely above emptiness on your skin. You realized that your time was running out, and yet, Gaius brought your hand up to kiss it. You noticed the way his eyes were glazed with unshed tears, and you brought your other hand up to cup his cheek, even though you felt nothing but air against your fingers.

“Gaius… know that I did it because I love you…” you said, your voice as soft as a whisper.

His smile grew, to savor the final moment and to reassure you, and even though it faintly trembled under his willpower, he still brought a hand up to hold your transparent hand on his cheek. “You did tell me before… I didn’t want to believe it but hey, you were always the sweet one here… I love you too, ____.”

On that moment, you vanished before his eyes,  and he kept a hand on his cheek, still feeling your ghostly touch on him. He finally closed his eyes, slightly smiling to himself, and he perked his head when he heard Morgan walking towards him. The young tactician stood before his father with a tear that trailed down a brown eye, eyes that matched the person he loved, and Gaius stretched his arms for Morgan to tightly embrace him, murmuring words into his ear when he felt his son shudder against his body from his sobbing. The young tactician that grew to be like his mother, and the greatest gift you could ever give him… the thief knew that he’ll keep your promise, to keep his own smile from fading, and now to give Morgan a reason to smile every day…

Wicked [Wizard of Oz] timeline

Because it was pissing me the hell off that there are no proper years used in the book or musical of Wicked, and I kind of wanted proper years to use in my referencing system for Galinda’s essay. So here goes, my analysis of the Ozian timeline:

At year 0 Lurline created/separated the land of Oz from all other worlds. Anything before that specific event will be labelled BL, or Before Lurline. Anything after will be cited as AL, After Lurline.

As the first Ozma was the daughter of Lurline, she most likely started her reign in the year 5AL, when Lurline decided to leave the land of Oz to its own devices and stopped interfering.

According to Frexparr Thropp, there were roughly 300 years of Ozmas before the Wizard started his reign. Also known is that the last Ozma (Tippetarius) and her mother (Ozma the Billous), disappeared just before the Wizard  begun his reign. At this point, Ozma Tippetarius was an infant, and is said to be Elphaba’s age. For the purpose of continuity between the book and the musical, we can state that Ozma the Two-faced was approximately 42 when she was deheaded (Musical fact), and that her daughter Ozma the Billous was approximately 21 at that time. Ozma the Billous reigned for about 2 years before she had Tip (Book fact), and they vanished/the Wizard took over shortly after that.

Using this info, it can be stated that Tip vanished, and the Wizard came to power, roughly in the year 307AL. Taking into consideration that Ozma Tippetarius is Elphaba’s age, this means Elphaba was born in the year 307AL (and Nessarose was born in the year 310AL). Assuming Nessarose is about 17 when she starts uni, and Elphaba could not go until Nessa went, this means the year the girls start at Shiz University is 327AL. All of Glinda’s sources are therefore published between the years 315AL and 325AL, as she would not have used any sources that are considered too outdated, nor would her library have access to any books more recent than 325AL.
