Mari Christmas! (*^∀゚)ъ

When gift boxes start falling from the sky, everyone thinks it’s a Christmas miracle. The scores of solid objects blasting through the roofs of their homes moments later remind them that just maybe, they should be worrying about the laws of gravity as well. Some choose to hide from the barrage in their homes, while others decide to scramble outside to seek shelter elsewhere.

Bad choice. The townspeople scream and dive out of the way as a pink helicopter swoops low to the ground. Eight children are nearly decapitated. They’re being comforted by their parents after this traumatizing experience as the helicopter slows its descent and hovers in place.

The door to the aircraft slams open to reveal Ohara Mari wearing a red Santa suit and obviously fake white beard. She takes in everyone’s terrified faces with interest. Then, Mari winks, forms a circle with her thumb and forefinger, and whispers, “It’s joke!

No one says a word. Perhaps they’re in shock over the whole situation. Mari doesn’t pay them any mind and says, “Ciao~” before closing the door. The helicopter begins to pick up height, and the bystanders shake themselves out of their stupor so that they can quickly back away before they’re blown off their feet by the resulting winds. Mari’s helicopter veers sharply right and takes off, nearly colliding with a power line. The crowd watches the helicopter slowly fade from sight in stunned silence.

Thousands of homes are destroyed. The entire town is laid to waste, and children weep at the loss of their image of Santa Claus.

But it’s okay, because Dia is money. Mari will drop off the bill for the damages at the Kurosawa estate in the morning.

She chuckles to herself as her helicopter flies off into the night. With this, Dia will definitely regret telling the Ohara heiress that Santa wasn’t real when they were first years.

no one asked for an analysis of my dad’s behaviour but here it is (for personal ref i guess? idk) anyways: i think my dad’s intention is pretty much always to be satirical like, when he makes a gay joke or a joke about, idk, conversion therapy or whatever, i think he means it to come across like “look at how dumb this thing conservatives say is haha!!1! pretty dumb right” which like. is fine ig, annoying but fine. BUT the thing is, satire requires a clear communication of intent/purpose, & if youre lacking that then youre just gonna contribute to and perpetuate the very actions you claim to make fun of. especially if afterwards you make a joke about people being too sensitive about that kind of stuff. and in this case it’s having a VERY clear impact on your kid and you just??¿ dont care?? what is that dad lol wyd……..

Listen. I know no one likes to hear negativity towards Glenn but I have express this: I’m a hundred percent certain that Glenn was the victim during the season finale. If he was not, I would be pleasantly surprised. I have come to this conclusion based of filming appearances, projects the actor has been working on, hints dropped by the actor or his castmates, and gut instinct. Personally, I think Steven has had an incredible run in the series and am massively proud of him for his accomplishments. He has taken this opportunity to grow as an actor, establish connections which have resulted into several more projects and opportunities for him. Yes, it’s unfortunate that the writers had not given his character the proper attention and development that Glenn and Steven deserve, but hopefully they can learn from their mistakes and better develop some of the other or newer characters.

God Is For Me!
If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?] Romans 8:31 AMP

The question isn’t simply, “Who can be against us?” That’s an easy one to answer: disease, inflation, corruption, exhaustion, calamities, and fears. The real question is, “If God is for us…?” Let’s read these words slowly, placing emphasis on each of them:

(1) God is for you. Your parents may have forgotten you, your teachers may have neglected you, your siblings may be ashamed of you, but within reach of your prayers is the Maker of the oceans: God!

(2) God IS for you. Not “maybe,” or “has been,” or “would be if,” but “is”! God is for you today, at this minute, as you read this sentence. No need to wait in line and come back tomorrow. He’s with you. He couldn’t be closer to you than He is at this second. His loyalty won’t increase if you’re better, nor lessen if you’re worse. He is for you.

(3) God is FOR you. Are you too tired to continue? He’ll carry you. Are you too discouraged to fight? He’ll fight for you. Turn to the sidelines; that’s God cheering you on. Look past the finish line; that’s God applauding your steps.

(4) God is for YOU. If God had a calendar, your birthday would be circled on it. If He had a car, your name would be on the bumper. If there’s a tree in heaven, He’s carved your name on the bark. We already know He has a tattoo, and we know what it says: “I have written your name on my hand” (Isa 49:16 NCV).

So when you get up each morning look in the mirror and tell yourself, “GOD IS FOR ME!

here is a paragraph of some semi coherent thoughts about last night:

i was just as happy as the next person they posted a picture together if i’m altogether honest. i love their friendship and we hadn’t seen them together in forever and it was just nice to see them hang out i guess. i can understand the excitement 100% but a lot of what people said on twitter wasn’t okay. there’s a fine line and many many people crossed the line. idk if responding in a manner of seeming so angry was sarah’s best move, but hey it’s how it all played out. just from the point of a young kid who found such joy in shipping their characters and then hearing her reaction to all of that i think it very much distances her from a large portion of her fan base which is extremely sad. the interactions shouldn’t have happened on either end of the bargain, they shouldn’t have had to. nobody should tweet things like that to someone with a personal life of their own. i remember vividly when i was dating my ex girlfriend someone came up to me in the hallway and said i should kiss my best friend bc they shipped us. i wanted to be like “wtf is wrong with you” and that’s just one person. i couldn’t even imagine a hoard of people collectively harassing you on twitter like. it’s fine to have feels and freak out and shit on here, or even on twitter or whatever without tagging sarah like that’s fine go for it bro. we all know i love shit posting about bananun/foxxay/hotgomery but i would never ever want sarah or lily to see that. we should keep all the fandom stuff for ourselves as a fandom and just appreciate sarah and lily as people and support them in their decisions from here on out.

anonymous asked:

Do you do canon compliant fic drabble requests? It's so hard to read anything canon-compliant, I've been searching for so long trying to find something that I haven't already read and it's surprisingly difficult.

Not really, no. Ahaha I mean, I might write something set during the xfactor, i guess? to be honest, thinking about writing something “canon compliant” makes me feel sort of sad at this point in time. Like I don’t even really want to go there in my mind, even to imagine some kind of somewhat alternative reality where things are a lot easier… And I def don’t want to go deep angst just for fun or pretend I have any idea what’s going on bts or whatever, ahah my larrie heart can’t handle it.

I’m sorry there’s a drought of that kind of fic though, it sucks when you really like something and there’s not enough of it. Lol I personally feel like there is never enough Larry fic overall, which is sort of ridic I know, since there really is so much of it.

Hux has no idea that Ren plays at being Matt the Radar Technician. Which suits Ren just fine. It’s none of the general’s damned business.

Except, now it kind of is. And Ren’s always been good with mistakes – or at least, with making them. Over and over and over again.
