The great obstacle known as the world is blocking your vision! You’ll never find your way like this if you lose yourself in regret and guilt! I know it’s painful now, but you have to overcome those feelings! Don’t just think about the things you’ve lost! You can’t get back what you’ve lost! Ask yourself, what is it that you still have?!

Capone Bege: You may be able to see slightly into the future, but even if we don’t possess such an ability… the power to change the future is equal in each and every one of us!!

Game Of Thrones Characters Season 7 My Edit

THE LANNISTER SIBLINGS

I love the Lannister’s they be are some of the most problematic siblings on GOT but they are incredibly engaging to watch and I love their storylines and can’t wait to see where it leads.

THE STARK SIBLINGS

The Starks are a very easy family to root for and not many people don’t enjoy them as they are all so incredibly different, there is usually something for everyone. Like Sansa once a naive little girl now becoming a strong politician who knows she needs to protect herself and cherish the home she once wanted to leave, Arya a trained assassin with empathy for innocent people who seeks revenge for her family, Bran once a cripple and now full of magic and incredible feats but also a incredible burden.

THE TARGARYEN’S

The Targaryen’s are also a incredibly problematic family but it’s easy to see why these two are so vastly popular. Both incredibly different from the rest, big protagonist’s on a different yet greatly paralleled journey that’s going to converge with each other very soon. One thinks she’s the last of her family in the world who feels incredibly alone and fights to make the world a little brighter and for people to have their own free will, as she had to fight and struggle for her own independence her entire life, the other always been a outsider in his own family not knowing his actually a Targaryen and always trying to be just and honourable like the man who raised him and fit in somewhere even though people are constantly bringing him down. They need each other which is why I can’t wait for Jonerys to meet.

BRIENNE’S LOVE TRIANGLE 

The triangle I never knew I wanted, Brienne and Jamie had a rough start but have become one of the most moving relationships on the show, their feelings for each other are pretty obvious but he needs to leave his toxic relationship with his twin sister if there is any hope for him not just for Brienne but to be a decent human being. Tormund respects strong independent women unlike the lords of Westeros who would laugh at Brienne, so his another good option for her as he wouldn’t try and make her something she isn’t but his flirting needs some work and a bit of toning down if he wants her not to be so freaked out by him lol.

THE ONCE ABUSED BUT NOW POWERFUL WOMEN

All these women were abused by selfish men but now they are confident powerful women all in their own rights.

Like Missandei stolen as a child to be turned into a slave for years getting abused her entire life and having her free will and dreams stripped away, Dany having a abusive brother who only admitted he loved her once and thinking he owns her to sell her away to a man for his own agenda, then before adjusting to the Dothraki culture being raped every night before she had the courage and strength to get her husband to respect her by learning Dothraki and showing a more dominant side, Sansa having her hopes and dreams crushed when her Prince Charming turned into a monster who tormented her with her dead family and had his knights beat her, then marrying another monster who raped her every night and made her a prisoner in her own home.

From what all these women have been through, it truly is a inspiration to see how much they have risen up from the ashes of their despair.

In Trousers: A Summary/Analysis

The Story

On the cast recording vinyl, William Finn wrote

The form of the show is simple: whenever things get too hot for the older Marvin, he reverts back to himself at fourteen. After 14: he has a high school sweetheart, isn’t big with the intimacies, gets married, isn’t big with the intimacies, and leaves his wife for a man. So Marvin grows up (after a fashion), says goodbye to the ladies (more to the point), and learns to live with always getting what he wants- which is the story of In Trousers.

In the libretto for the 1986 revised show, Finn added to this: “But alot of the material was about my learning to write the kind of show songs I wanted to write. So the show is about Marvin’s education, and mine.” Ira Wetizman has called it an “impressionistic portrait of Marvin.”

The Setting

A circle on the floor, an enormous Venetian blind painted blue, a wall through which ladies can disappear.

The Cast

Marvin
His wife
His high school sweetheart
His teacher, Miss Goldberg (who always wears sunglasses)

The Songs

Marvin’s Giddy Seizures - Marvin & the ladies

The first number, of course, introduces the main character, Marvin, and sets the tone for the rest of the show. Basically, it is establishing the baseline: Marvin at 14 years old (as mentioned by Finn). He’s a weird kid, who acts inappropriately, impulsively, and selfishly. He craves the attention of others, so he makes scenes by throwing tantrums or “fits” which are represented by giddy seizures. But it’s also important to note that this song is not a specific event or experience, it’s sort of an embodiment of how 14 year old Marv acts. All the ladies are on stage and singing, but they’re not really present in the action. Because there isn’t any real action.

How the Body Falls Apart - Ladies

Once Marvin is gone, they transition to his wife’s song by having the ladies sing this sort of… ambiguous declaration about life. I guess? There is again not really any action here. I mean… “things on which we most depend seem to fail us in the end” is sort of a resonant theme, I would say.

caditopotter  asked:

Do you subscribe to the theory that Syrio Forel IS Hagar? The Faceless man?

Thanks for the question, @caditopotter​​!

Well, PQ already gave you a pretty great answer, and I agree with the thematic and genre notes in his sacrifice, but, I’d like to elaborate that, logistically speaking, the timelines don’t mesh up well:

I got thirty this time, men and boys all bound for the Wall, and don’t be thinking they’re like that bastard brother o’ yours. Lord Eddard gave me pick o’ the dungeons, and I didn’t find no little lordlings down there.

“Rugen was here when need be, my lord. That must be said. The black cells are little used. Before your lordship’s little brother was sent down, we had Grand Maester Pycelle for a time, and before him Lord Stark the traitor. There were three others, common men, but Lord Stark gave them to the Night’s Watch. I did not think it good to free those three, but the papers were in proper order. I made note of that in a report as well, you may be certain of it.”

So, Jaqen H'ghar was already in the black cells while Ned was still alive and Syrio was teaching Arya. And, keep in mind, the black cells seem to be used for the absolute worst of criminals, seeing how Rennifer Longwaters speaks of them being “little used”, Cersei thinks of how they were not “not oft been occupied in recent years”, Varys’ speech about the progressively more unpleasant dungeon levels and the fact that Rorge and Biter were Jaqen’s company. So it’s not a case where Syrio took a random or innocent man’s identity, Jaqen himself did something to warrant the black cells.

There’s also the logistics of the Lannister forces killing off all the Stark loyalists in King’s Landing, yet Syrio was able to escape from Meryn Trant, despite a broken wooden sword and Meryn having steel, somehow get through the dungeons and turn into Jaqen… it just strikes me easier to go with Occam’s Razor and consider Syrio dead.

Though, there are other reasons beyond Occam’s Razor to assume Syrio died in that final struggle.

First off, characterization:

Syrio Forel stepped between them, tapping his wooden sword lightly against his boot. “You will be stopping there. Are you men or dogs that you would threaten a child?”

“Syrio, run,” she screamed.

“The first sword of Braavos does not run,” he sang as Ser Meryn slashed at him.

This is not a man who would run away from protecting a child just to save himself, nor ignore an injustice when he is capable of combating against it. Basic text already rules out those possibilities from Syrio’s own lips.

Second off, how it pertains to Arya’s journey. One of the biggest themes of her character arc is how to serve justice in a world teeming full of casual and brutal injustices. Her second chapter alone has her ruminate on the sheer injustice of Lady and her friend Mycah’s deaths:

They’d let the queen kill Lady, that was horrible enough, but then the Hound found Mycah. Jeyne Poole had told Arya that he’d cut him up in so many pieces that they’d given him back to the butcher in a bag, and at first the poor man had thought it was a pig they’d slaughtered. And no one had raised a voice or drawn a blade or anything, not Harwin who always talked so bold, or Alyn who was going to be a knight, or Jory who was captain of the guard. Not even her father.

There’s a dearth of justice in Westeros and even Arya has to reflect that friends and loved ones she was close to were willing to casually let the injustices of those deaths go because to outcry against them was too inconvenient or they didn’t care enough to do so. But, through Syrio, she sees a person willing to stand up and hold his ground against the (likely to follow) abuse of innocents.

And it pays off, considering Arya leaves King’s Landing. Justice exists and, from there, Arya has been alive to commit to meting it when she is able to.

Plus, all of Arya’s mentors seem to die on her, from the literal of Yoren and Beric (multiple times!) to the metaphorical (Jaqen and the Hound.) I don’t think Syrio himself would be able to escape this pattern, seeing how the others didn’t.

Third off, how it pertains to ASoIaF because Syrio’s death is a case that supports the reading that ASoIaF is not grimdark and one of its greater themes.

One of the main theses, if not the thesis, of ASoIaF is that you must hold against the darkness and cold winds in both the magical and political realms. You must stand up against atrocities and monsters, even though you may not be rewarded for it, because there is always a choice and a right one and people must make them to combat the world’s horrors and injustices .

ASoIaF absolutely has its share of last stands, existential victories and people stubbornly trying to hold onto their convictions in the face of the abyss. To hold firm to their ideals and fight back against abuse, dehumanization and cruelty. Syrio made the right choice and spent the last of his life defending an innocent child from being abused by Lannister soldiers… and gave Arya a chance to live.

It matters that Syrio gave his life to let Arya escape, not that he got killed by Meryn Trant.

Hope this satisfies!

The Bible as a book stands alone. There never was, nor ever will be, another like it. As there is but one sun to enlighten the world naturally, so there is but one Book to enlighten the world spiritually. May that Book become to each of us the man of our counsel, the guide of our journey, the inspiration of our thought, and our support and comfort in life and in death.

What Makes You Wanna Get Married?

People may have experienced a day which full of gray skies, crystallized hard rain, loneliness, and even isolation. Unfortunately, they just companioned by a cup of lukewarm tea of coffee. Or, in the opposites, they are surrounded by so many people around, but still feel alone. Thus, getting married are not only for these reasons. Married isn’t only about seeking friends for exploring the choppy waves of life ahead, or fulfilling your need of affiliation.

People have tendencies in a need of love and belongingness. These are the common fundamental things in live. But, there’s something that we have to know, that problems will not resolved through the expression of love and tenderness only. Getting married is not only for this reason. Married isn’t only about seeking love and tenderness. Married isn’t like a magic or a wand which can cure all your troubles is a flash.

Hmm, as a human being, every people have problems, they have bad experiences about something. But, getting married is not about escaping yourself from trouble or something traumatic. Married isn’t only about solving your problem and seeking for protection. Can you imagine how your life would be if you are decided to be a person who just leaning your lives through other rather than have meaningful lives of your own? Thus, married isn’t only about breaking black clouds.

For those who are man, psychologically you will have more desire of power than women. You may feel and think that you must be a strong person, so you can control and protect your wife. But, married is not only about showing power and seeking control to others. On the other side, married isn’t only about showing or giving your power of affiliation for your wife. Your wife may be your best comfortable place ever. She can give you caress or a warm hug whenever you want. She can whisper you her magical word which makes your spirit burned. She’s able to give you a cup of testable coffee which she makes by love. But, she is more than just it!

For those who are woman, psychologically you will have more desire to be listened, cared, and loved by others than man. You may think and feel that life is about togetherness with others, especially your spouses who can save you from the silent hours when you stand by yourself alone. But, married are not only about sharing journey, showing your stories, and being listened so that your problem would be solved. Your husband may able to be the best listener ever; he may give his concern to everything you say. Your husband may heal, but don’t make him just as a healer man who can give you a quite hug whenever you need. He is more than just it.

Another thing, people actually have a desire or a need of sexual fulfillment. Consciously or not, every people living in this world are seeking for pleasurable things. But, married is not only about fulfilling your need about it. Married is not only about making sense something nonsense.

So, what makes you wanna get married?

Yup, it’s a liar if we don’t seek those things above through marriage. Marriage can be for seeking friend, fulfilling need of affiliation, seeking love and tenderness, solving problems and seeking protection, showing power for protect our spouses, sharing journey, showing your stories, being listened, and fulfilling needs about sexual desire.

But, something important that we have to know is that we are just human being. Obedient and faithful to Allah should be the reason why we do many things in our live. That’s why our reason for getting married should be for the obedient and faithful to Allah. On the other words, we should put devotion at the very first reason of marriage.

Remember :

“Deeds are depends on its intention. And, people just get something depending on his/her intention …” (HR. Bukhari and Muslim)

Post-Season Analysis 2: Peridot (the one actually made of rocks)

(we love you too, other small green asshole)

(Disclaimer:  I am a liveblog!  I’ve seen up through episode 78, Log Date 7 15 2, and all analysis and assertions made herein are based upon such information as I have received to this point.  Please don’t spoil me about future events in the reblogs!)

This is…shorter than it could be.  I’ve said a lot about Peridot in the last few days, so rehashing it feels weird, but man, that was a satisfying arc.

Peridot’s been one of the best-handled characters in the entire show, in my opinion.  Descents into surreal Looney Tunes madness aside–and not really aside, they’re completely consistent with this character and how silly she is–her arc, lost and alone on an alien world she’s starting to understand and starting to want to protect, is something I’ve become extremely invested in.  As you could probably tell.  Peridot’s journey from beleaguered techie (and devout worshiper of the Gem rulership) to full-fledged rebel has not only been rife with fantastic character development but has remained completely within the bounds of who Peridot is as a person.  She arrived at her decision to confront Yellow Diamond entirely in keeping with her own principles of rationality, and when Yellow Diamond didn’t live up to Peridot’s faith in her, it was her unjustified faith that broke, not her principles.

I’m really excited to see how Peridot incorporates into the Gems’ lives now that she’s firmly on their side (and, griping aside, she’s speaking in terms of being one of them, now!).  I can’t even guess where that’s going to start, but it’s gonna be a wild ride.

Saved (Daryl Dixon imagine)

imagine: you meet Daryl, who takes you back to his group, which happens to include a very familiar face. (2,362 words)

PART TWO HERE

based on this request: when out a run alone, Daryl gets trapped by walkers and Y/N saves him. He takes her back to the prison and learns she’s a long time friend of Rick’s family. Rick gets very protective in a big brother way, but Daryl misunderstands and gets jealous. Y/N leaves rather then watch them fight. Daryl goes after her and tells her he loves her.

sorry this took so long @foill70! it’s super long and I changed it a little bit but I hope you like it :) I didn’t quite get to Daryl confessing his feelings etc so let me know if you’d like a part 2!! - georgia

Originally posted by geminoweasley

As I wandered through the woods on my 34th day of being alone, I couldn’t help but appreciate the way that the dead leaves fell around me, slowly and delicately, getting caught in the wind as they tumbled down. It was rare for me to notice anything beautiful anymore. Not surprisingly, I was a little too caught up in the end of the world to feel safe enough to admire anything.

The rustling of muffled footsteps and groaning of a nearby walker quickly snapped me back to reality and I scolded myself for being distracted. I watched in disgust as it stumbled towards me; it was particularly disgusting, with one eye missing from the socket and skin peeling off of its arms. Luckily, the dead didn’t scare me anymore, especially in low numbers. I drove my knife into its skull without even flinching.

A voice, however, conjured a completely different reaction from me. I removed my gun from my belt and held it up, rapidly rotating, trying to distinguish the source of the sound. I was sure it’d been a person, maybe not as close as I’d initially thought, but I’d definitely heard a shout. Trying to place as little weight on my feet as possible so as to reduce the noise of my footsteps, I reluctantly moved in the direction of the voice.

Soon enough, I’d identified its origin. Around 6 walkers were grouped in a clearing, all moving in unison towards a lone man. Although he looked tough, and was certainly putting up a fight with multiple weapons, I quickly ran to his aid, not wanting to be responsible for the death of a human when it could be prevented.

“Hey!” I called, aiming to draw a few of the walkers away from the stranger. It worked, and I grabbed each one by the neck before putting it out of its misery. Once I’d finished with the three that had come my way, I turned to speak to the man and was met with a rather unwelcoming sight.

A crossbow was pointed right at my face, only a few inches away. I automatically held up my hands in surrender, hoping that the stranger was only taking precautions. When he didn’t speak, simply staring at me from behind his weapon, I cleared my throat.

“I was just helping,” I explained. “Not trying to hurt you or anything.”

The man scoffed and lowered his crossbow ever so slightly to reveal more of his face. He was handsome, but not obviously so; his hair was long and scruffy, his eyes shadowed by presumably dark memories. I smiled at him, not for a second believing I would gain a smile in return.

“Didn’ think so,” he drawled in a strong Southern accent. “Got a camp?”

“No,” I replied quietly, trying to suppress the emotions that question brought up. It’d been a long time since I wasn’t alone, but the thought of my old friends still haunted me. “Just me.”

“Alone?” he asked and I simply nodded in response, willing him to understand and not pursue to topic. I breathed a silent sigh of relief when he completely lowered his weapon, seemingly believing every word I’d spoken. “How many walkers you killed?”

“Wh - what?” I stammered, taken aback by his sudden and seemingly random question. Knowing I’d heard perfectly, my interviewer stayed silent and waited for my response. “I dunno. Too many to count.”

“How many people have you killed?” he continued, not leaving more than a second between my reply and his next query. My heart pounded at the thought of my answer and I decided it best not to lie.

“Three.”

“Why?”

“They killed my friends.”

“Follow me.”


Daryl, as I soon learnt his name was, was a man of few words. On our journey to his camp, he briefly explained that he was part of a large group lead by a man named Rick. The mention of that name turned my stomach a little, remembering the best friend of my brother who’d had the same name. Unfortunately, I knew it couldn’t be the same man; the Rick I’d known had been shot not long before the apocalypse began and things weren’t looking good for him before, let alone in this world.

“Shit,” Daryl muttered under his breath as we reached the edge of the woods, a large prison looming in front of us.

“What?” I asked frantically, looking between him and the prison and worrying that he’d taken me to the wrong place. Were we going to be attacked any minute? I could feel Daryl watching me as I studied the prison with wide eyes.

“Calm down,” he said with a short laugh and a roll of his eyes. “This is our camp.”

“Oh. Then what you “shit”ing for?” Again, a hint of humour passed across his expression at my phrasing, but he quickly wiped it from his face with a subtle shake of his head.

“Didn’ catch anythin’,” he said blankly, resuming his original hostility. I nodded in understanding, assuming by the presence of his crossbow and the large sack he was carrying that he was referring to hunting. “We still got yesterday’s, c’mon.”

I followed Daryl up a fairly long, winding road that lead us through several gates until we reached the main section of the prison. We were met at these gates by four people, all of which raised their weapons defensively at the sight of me. For the second time that day, I raised my hands. However, due to the fact that I had formed some sort of alliance with one member of the group, I didn’t feel too threatened.

“She’s fine, she saved me,” Daryl reasoned calmly, indicating to the one woman and three men that they should put their guns down. Although, one of the men could hardly be considered a man, as he appeared to be barely a teenager. “Gonna see if Rick’ll let her stay.”

Dropping my hands, I looked at Daryl in surprise. He returned my gaze with little expression, but I felt sure he knew exactly what I was thinking: he hadn’t mentioned the fact that I wasn’t definitely going to be allowed to stay. It was naive of me to assume this would be the case, but I thought Daryl leading me to his friends implied permanent residence. I steadied my heartbeat but continued to stare at Daryl, who tilted his head in the direction of the building and walked towards it without hesitation. I smiled awkwardly in the direction of the people who’d greeted us before scurrying off to catch up with Daryl.

I felt all eyes on me as we made our way through to the cell blocks. According to Daryl, a large group had recently been accepted into the prison, and this gave me hope that their leader would also make the exception for me. Daryl and I entered cell block C side by side but he let me go ahead as we moved further into the room. He pointed lazily to a man sat with his back to me and I took this as an indication this was the (in)famous Rick.

“Rick? Got someone for you to meet,” Daryl called, more confident than I’d ever heard him. From the little Daryl had said about Rick, and the way he talked to him, I deduced that the two men were close. I straightened my clothes and adjusted my hair as Rick slowly turned away from the woman he was talking to.

“Hi, I’m -” I began, looking at the ground in nervousness.

“Y/N?” a familiar voice finished for me, forcing me to snap my gaze up to them.

Rick?” I practically shouted, completely shocked. “It’s actually you?”

I ran forward eagerly, no longer anxious in the slightest. Rick hugged me tightly before holding me at arm’s length, looking completely astonished to see me alive. Despite him being my brother’s friends initially, he and I had become reasonably close in the many years we spent living in the same town, even going to school together.

“I can’t believe this - when Daryl said “Rick”, I thought of you, but - oh my God,” I stuttered, having no idea how to put my feelings into words. Not wanting to avoid the inevitable, I asked the questions I dreaded to know the answers to. “Lori? Carl?”

“Not Lori…” Rick said gruffly, averting his eyes uncomfortably. I put a comforting hand in his arm until he looked at me once more. “Your brother?” I shook my head solemnly. Suddenly felt a presence beside me; I turned to see Daryl by my side.

“You saw Carl by the gates,” he stated.

That was Carl? I didn’t even recognise him,” I almost whispered, still reeling from the news of Lori’s passing, though unfortunately it wasn’t a shock.

“By the sounds of it, he didn’t recognise you either,” Rick laughed, resuming his relaxed and happy expression.

“Can you blame him?” I retorted, gesturing to the dirt that covered nearly every inch of my body. Rick scanned me in amusement before placing a hand on my shoulder and guiding me away.

“Take a shower, get some clean clothes, then we’ll catch up.”

“Thanks, Rick,” I sighed, relishing in the thought of actual running water. “I can’t believe it’s you.”

He returned my smile and pulled me in for one last hug before sending me in the direction of the bathroom. I virtually skipped all the way there.


That evening was undoubtedly the happiest I’d had since the apocalypse had begun. After talking with Rick for a couple of hours, each learning how the other had survived and describing the grief we’d encountered, he introduced me to the members of what he called his “family”. I was reunited with Carl, who was very entertained and slightly flattered at my admission of not recognising him. In all honesty, I got the impression he barely remembered who I was, but I didn’t care.

One thing I noticed was how quiet Daryl stayed throughout the night. I’d gathered that he was the quiet type, but not to even crack a smile or say anything seemed odd to me. However, more than once I glanced at him and found that his eyes had already settled on me. Luckily, he snapped them away fast enough to miss my unavoidable smirk.

After a comforting night of getting to know my new cellmates - a word I never thought I’d have to apply to myself - Rick and I were the only people left awake. This was unsurprising since it was getting late and the first person had admitted defeat almost an hour ago, but I had a feeling Rick had something to say to me.

“What’s up?” I asked, smiling, after watching Daryl make his way up to where he slept. I noticed Rick’s eyes following his movements intensely, clearly debating on whether to share his thoughts or not. “Don’t be shy, Rick,” I prompted mockingly.

“Daryl seems to like you,” he said suddenly with a smirk. I was taken aback by his observation; judging by Daryl’s lack of willingness to talk to me, this was the last confession I’d expected. “I know what you’re thinking, but he’s picky about who he brings back.”

“I think it was just because I saved him,” I justified, feeling my cheeks turn red in embarrassment. I felt like a schoolgirl in a playground who’s friend had just told them that they knew who fancied them.

“I don’t think so,” Rick grinned. “He couldn’t keep his eyes off ya.”

“I dunno - I don’t think -” I stammered in embarrassment. Rick waved my denial off, still smiling, but with a serious look underlying his entertained expression.

“Be careful. He’s a good guy, but -” he trailed off awkwardly. “I don’t want you getting hurt.”

I nodded understandingly, knowing that Rick was only looking out for me like he and my brother had always done. I leaned forward to kiss his cheek before pushing myself off of the floor and heading towards the cell I’d been allocated. For the first time in months, including before I’d lost my group, I felt safe to sleep. Just as I was climbing under the thin sheets, however, a cough from the doorway made me jump and step back defensively.

“Woah,” Daryl whispered, holding his hands up. “Jus’ me.”

“You scared the shit out of me,” I gasped, putting a hand to my chest dramatically.

“Sorry, just wanted to say…” Daryl looked around my room awkwardly, clearly trying to formulate the words in his head. I thought it best to stay quiet and await his next sentence. “Thanks. For helpin’ me.”

“Oh, that’s alright. Just doing what any decent person would.”

“Maybe,” he replied, offering me the smallest of smiles. “So… can I ask ya somethin’?”

“Sure,” I mumbled, worry building up in my chest; I was never very good with suspense.

“You and Rick. Are ya… y’know? A thing?”

I burst into laughter before remembering the hour and clamping a hand over my mouth. “No, no. Just friends - he was a family friend, really. Before.”

“Oh righ’,” he nodded, shuffling backwards out of the room. Before he could inevitably bid me goodnight, I cut him off with a query of my own.

“Why d’you ask?”

“Jus’ - jus’ wonderin’,” he stammered. “Night, Y/N.”

As he exited my cell I couldn’t repress the blush on my cheeks a fluttering feeling in my chest. Was the elusive Daryl actually jealous of me and Rick? He barely knew me, but knowing that I wasn’t the only one who noticed his stares gave me the tiniest suspicion that Rick was right.

Climbing into the bed at last, I found it easier than I expected to sleep. Despite this, I spent at least ten minutes analysing Daryl’s behaviour and considering how I could get to know him better. Grateful to be pondering over something other than how to find food, water and shelter for once, I fell into a contently dreamless sleep. Daryl had thanked me for saving him, but I couldn’t help feeling as though I was the one who’d been saved.

Hello Mr Bendis, having collected every ultimate marvel comic book as well as most variant covers and TPB (not always an easy task as I live in England) are you as sad to see it go as I am?

I have many mixed emotions. I am very proud of so much of what was accomplished, and I’m not one to wallow in pride.

From my perspective I was hired for a six issue miniseries and I turned it into a 15 year gig that brought me more than I could’ve ever hoped for.

Also, not to spoil things but I think some people have figured out that not every part of it is going away.

Ultimate spider–man alone has launched video games and television shows and who knows what the future holds

But for people like you who committed so much support to the journey… I love you. You have no idea what it feels like on my end to get a note like this from someone halfway around the world

Westley Monahan for Siml3gacies’ Sims 3 Store Giveaway.

As a salty sea breeze whips up around him, Westley Monahan pulls up the anchor and aptly maneuvers his small skiff out of the shallow harbor and into the open ocean. Once safely away from the shoreline, he reaches down for what must be the hundredth time today and briskly unhinges the lock on the compartment below his seat, ensuring that his loot rests safely where he stashed it. His boss expects a good haul this time, and he will not disappoint him.

West never wanted to become a thief, but born in the crossfires of an ugly civil war he learned quickly to rely upon himself and only himself. After the slaughter of his mother and siblings at the tender age of fourteen, he journeyed hundreds of miles alone toward the nearest city where he took to pickpocketing and swindling to survive. Before long, however, the quick witted, charismatic young man joined forces with a local street gang and began taking on larger and larger jobs, eventually working his way up to the very top. Now, an elite con artist and master thief with an impressive record of hits to his name, he travels the world stealing ultra-rare artifacts and performing whatever other nefarious tasks his bosses set out for him.

Nevertheless, despite enjoying the thrill and freedom that comes with his career, Westley feels trapped by his life of crime and yearns to escape it, but in his line of work one cannot simply resign. Still, as the stakes grow higher and the risks grow deadlier, he knows that something must change. But how?

Be Okay

I got a request in my inbox to write a 6x06 fic with some angst, a jealous Mercedes and a happy ending. To the anon that requested this I hope you enjoy. 


She was okay. 


It had been 8 months, 13 days, and 4 hours since she and Sam had broken up. 3 weeks, 2 days and 7 hours since she found out that he kissed Rachel. And 2 days and 9 hours since she told him that he should move on.

But she was okay.

As she stood in Mr. Schue’s living room she fixed a smile on her face as she watched Sam do his impression of Kevin Hart doing Chris Tucker that he had been working on for months. Mercedes stifled a giggle at Sam’s high-pitched twang but her mood instantly darkened as she watched Rachel laugh obnoxiously loud and all but fling herself across Sam’s lap. Mercedes fought the urge to roll her eyes and she reminded herself that she had no right to be concerned one way or the other how another girl should act around Sam. He wasn’t her boyfriend anymore–by her choice–and she didn’t regret that decision. Not even a little bit.

She was, after all, completely okay.

Cast out am I!
Cast out from the origins of the world;
Cursed by the hand that made me
Ever to wander the Ways of the Land, alone!

In the pilgrimage of Self-becoming
I journey to the heart of the clay-born
Returning to the point:
The Knowledge of Solitude.

In Exile I turn ever inward unto the Void of self-knowing:
I journey beyond the boundaries of man-kind’s dominion
To encompass the Nullity of Self.

Who am I, who remains ever alone?
Solitude is my only solace.
Who am I known only by the beasts of the hedge?
I walk the Ways of Pilgrimage,
As One with the mask of the spirits;
I turn the Bloody Circle of the Sacred,
As One with my own Mask.
