Hercule Poirot, a cinnamon roll

Refugees vs homeless

I hate it when people ask me “Why do you care more about refugees,than Homeless Canadians” so I ask “why didn’t you care about homeless Canadians last week, or the week before, or the week before that?” They only seem to care about the homeless when someone is talking about bringing in refugees. And then they go back to not caring about them immediately after.

Bubbled AU: In which the Crystal Gems rescue Steven and Eyeball from the vastness of outer space just before Eyeball could stab Steven. Garnet see this, unfuses, and Ruby proceeds to beat the ever-living daylights out of Eyeball while everyone else watches.

Oh, and the Ruby Squad were saved!

What people think Lena Luthor is like: *Icy. Unemotional. Always has a steely gaze in her eyes. Goes to bed every night and wakes up every morning with perfect hair and make-up. Owns nothing but black pant suits. Has never cried, ever. Will destroy you. Speaks in chess metaphors. Never smiles*

What Lena Luthor is actually like: *Has cried thirty-seven times today. Adopts stray animals so often that no one asks questions when They see strange new ones in her apartment. Gets emotional at videos of dogs being reunited with Their owners. Loves hugging and cuddling. Always wants to be the little spoon. Her bed is covered in stuffed animals. If you were nice to her once seventeen years ago, she probably still loves you for it. Will physically fight you if you disrespect Kara. Pets every dog she comes across and usually has to be pulled away by someone. Will cry if you raise your voice at her.*

The dark side of The Signs
  • Aries: Reckless to the point of disaster. By the time they figure out they've done or said too much, it's too late and the damage is already done.
  • Taurus: Unkind and unforgiving to those who once held their trust. They can be so blind to reason and to explanation. They will throw away people they love just to prove a point.
  • Gemini: You never know what you're going to get out of them. One day they'll be ready to help you and love you, they next they'll tell you never to speak to them again.
  • Cancer: They love blaming every problem they encounter on others. Because someone hated them so much, they had to have wished this on them. At least, that's what they're thinking.
  • Leo: They become extremely frustrated and hostile when they don't get what they want. They are convinced they deserve to have it, so if it means they need to break out the fangs, they will.
  • Virgo: They think they know better than you; and they'll tell you all about it. Did you really think you did something well? Virgo will explain just how to perfect it, and how they "could've done it better."
  • Libra: They aren't as harmless as they appear. The worst of them will try to eliminate whatever gets into their way. They don't care how "good" your intentions are- you're wasting their time, and they will most likely find a way to get you out of their way.
  • Scorpio: They don't forget. If you come back around years later trying to be close again, they will guilt trip you and then send you back. You don't want to fuck with these guys.
  • Sagittarius: They don't care about your feelings. If they have something to say, they're going to say it. And if you scream and cry, they're ultimately convinced it's not on them.
  • Capricorn: They will watch, and judge, every single thing you do. If they hate you a little extra, they'll fuck it up and get you in trouble for your accidents, too.
  • Aquarius: They will completely shut you out when they're bored of you. Don't expect an explanation (or any kind of friendly one,) or any sort of "mercy." They'll just sneer at you and walk away.
  • Pisces: They will lie right through their teeth to spare your feelings, and then go and do something they know would break your heart. Only for the pleasure of the moment.
Chiron in the Houses

Chiron in the 1st House - The motivator. You dedicate energy into encouraging and building other’s confidence, but may neglect or have difficulty building your own confidence and character.

Chiron in the 2nd House - The appraiser. Teaches others the true value in their resources; what they need and don’t need. But with that being said, you may not practice what you preach and accumulate excess that you can’t let go of.

Chiron in the 3rd House - The alien translator. Your own alienation from your immediate environment and peers, which was caused by the inability to express yourself completely, gives the power to help other’s difficulty to express themselves.

Chiron in the 4th House - The family counsellor. The ultimate power of empathy is formed here. You can help others with their troubled home life based on your experiences and intuition. 

Chiron in the 5th House - The love doctor. You’ve encountered or will encounter many life lessons in the matters of love that may just make you a certified love doctor! You’ve seen it all and you’re ready to lay down the facts on love to others.

Chiron in the 6th House - The manager. While you may have difficulty managing your own lifestyle even right down to remembering something as simple as to make a decent breakfast, you are quite skilled at organizing and managing other’s day to day tasks.

Chiron in the 7th House - The partner in crime. Based upon your experiences dealing with cooperation and the lack of being met or meeting someone halfway, you can offer valuable advice on compromise and partnership related problems.

Chiron in the 8th House - The psychiatrist. You have a talent for rehabilitating and healing others, you may even have psychic healing powers. With this all being said though, Chiron heals others, but cannot heal his own wounds; in this case, the psychologically damaging ones. 

Chiron in the 9th House - The turnkey. Like a turnkey, you have the power to set people free and break their restraints. As you release others and watch them walk out into the world, you stay behind and continue to watch over the prison of restriction. Where is your liberty if you are liberty?

Chiron in the 10th House - The promoter. You always put yourself in situations where you aid others to succeed in their ambitions, but there is never anything left for you to climb on. Factors hold you back from success, but may just be easily fixed if you set your priorities straight. 

Chiron in the 11th House - The acquiescent. You accept others for their quirks unhesitatingly despite your own uniqueness causing trouble in the matters of acceptance and making genuine friends. 

Chiron in the 12th House - The rationalist. While you may suffer from unexplained fear and guilt, you have the power to psychologically analyze and rationalize other people’s fears and guilty feelings. 

“If politics were an episode of a daily-soap:”

“Martin wants Angela’s job no matter what, but she’s still pulling all the strings. What they both don’t know: The mysterious Russian Vladimir has a dangerous plan. Meanwhile Donald is scheming and fires his colleague James. Emmanuel has other problems: He’s in love with a much older woman. Will it work? And what is evil Beatrix planning next?”
  • raphael: *displays affection by saving simon, being soft™, giving him a sexy once over, acting angry and following him*
  • simon: *displays affection by staring at raphael's neck, talking about him and accusing him of low key stalking*

One of us should probably say something.
About what? I don’t know, the moment? Remind the men in whose name this fight is to be fought? You think they’ve forgotten? No, but …we are emotional beings, after all, and rhetoric is the fuel that feeds the fire.
For 10,000 years, a man anticipating conquest - has stood before his army -

Do it.
