Trump has just announced Muslim Ban 3.0. It is FAR, FAR worse than the versions that came before it.
Muslim Ban 3.0 bans ALL IMMIGRANTS AND REFUGEES from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, Chad and North Korea, in addition to ALL VISITORS OF ANY KIND.
That means NO ONE from these countries will be allowed to get visas in to the United States anymore - not tourists, not businesspeople, not family reunions, not anything. The only exception is students from Iran (F, M, and J visas) - students from all the other countries are banned.
This means that Iranian-Americans are now completely cut off from our families inside of Iran, who are now forbidden from visiting.
This means Americans of Syrian, Somali, Libyan, Chadian, and Yemeni heritage are now cut off from family, friends, neighbors, loved ones.
This means no weddings, no funerals, no visits to grandma and grandpa, no seeing cousins, no nothing. There is no exemptions for family.
And this is INDEFINITE. Unlike the previous versions which were 90 days each and had to be renewed, this is FOREVER.
Imagine the families broken up, the lives torn apart, the connections shattered. The people caught in the middle.
My heart is broken. We must resist. There are no other options.
They are finally done! My 5x5 mini icon/print collection!!
I am very excited…. this will be my first prints ever! Hopefully the first of many to come~
As of yet I will still be figuring out how things work since I am very new at this, but hopefully have a shop with accompanying acrylic charms one day (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧
(there are many more ideas in my head… buttons, lanyards… They are a lot of fun to create!!! [Also really excited for Atlantale 2018!!!!!])
Special thanks to @wildunderbeastly for commissioning four of these! I decided to add the rest and make them all super nice!!

MY CHILDREN????"<p/></p>
One of my favorite things about Amethyst is how physically affectionate she is. I mean, look at this little purple nugget of sunshine, hopping around with fits of love so strong she can’t contain or help it, she just has to be expressive.
Aries: There are a lot of gifts you can give someone that cost little to nothing - Hope, Joy, Love, The Soul of an Innocent, Toothpicks…
Taurus: Sometimes you must not underestimate or resist the pull of fate. If it’s pulling you in front of a truck, however, that is when you start taking scissors to their bullshit strings.
Gemini: Staring directly at a light bulb is going to make your eyes blurry and shapes difficult to discern. It will do nothing, however, to erase the figure who lurks in the entrance of the hall - that’ll still be perfectly clear.
Cancer: Please don’t eat the lipstick.
Leo: The waters that surround your castle are going to do nothing more than eat away at the supporting earth beneath it.
Virgo: Decorate yourself with feathers and make velociraptor noises at passersby.
Libra: Calm winds surround you and keep you.
Scorpio: “My darling, my dearest, you have such a long way to go before the end and so little strength with which to make it. Do not forget to reach out to the water, the moon, the heavens themselves if nothing else when you need help.”
Sagittarius: You cannot drop-kick your problems.
Capricorn: The branches of the elm tree have a story for you and only you. Mostly because you’re the only one who can read it. No idea how you do that, really. It’s a little weird.
Aquarius: Build it higher and better. Reach the heavens and bitch-slap the god who said you couldn’t.
Pisces: You are, truly, the water - Cold, clear, refreshing, and possessing the ability to drown them all, destroy their dwellings, and make all rue the day they wronged you.
make me choose:asked by @modernaira → stranger things or star wars? “In every corner of the galaxy, the downtrodden and oppressed know our symbol, and they put their hope in it. We are the spark that will light the fire that will restore the Republic. That spark, this Resistance, must survive. That is our mission.”
Request by @buckysjuicyplums: Hi, can you please write a Ben Solo x Reader imagine where the reader was a survivor in the camp of Jedi’s in training with Luke. And she survived because Ben always had a soft spot for her therefore saved her that night. And they get separated and then reunite years later and she helps try being him to the good side?
Pairings: Ben Solo x reader, a little Poe x reader
Word count: 1,966
Warnings: Spoilers about Ben’s past, some violence,
When you close your eyes you can see what happened with such vividness that you have to open them again just to remember that you aren’t actually there.
What happened that night was a shock to you. He was the best in class, he was thriving and you thought he’d be the first fully fledged Jedi out of you all.
Luke Skywalker was a legend, and an amazing teacher but even you couldn’t compete with Ben Solo’s abilities no matter how hard you trained, how much extra work you put in and all those late nights staying up to practise the force.
This is obviously not a serious prediction regarding Episode IX and I don’t anticipate being right with much (if any) of this - however, since The Last Jedi told me to go for broke when it comes to my predictions, I thought it would be fun to extrapolate from the events of VIII and come up with a resolution to the sequel trilogy that makes sense to me.
Take this in good fun - it’s really fanfiction, but I feel this doesn’t really deserve that label since the fanfic of this would have much more time and effort put into it!
Enjoy - I’d like to hear people’s thoughts on this.
