VD = 8x16 = Final “Dear Diary...”

Matt: Dear Diary, we survived that night. Mystic Falls is safe. I remain the Sheriff…they even gave me a bench. I’m thinking of running for mayor. And Vickie…well I think she found peace. Somehow it feels like she did.

Bonnie: I’m determined to keep my promise to Enzo. I’m gonna live this life to the fullest. I wanna see the world, enjoy my life.

Alaric: As for my family, Caroline and I got what Damon decided was Stefan’s last wish. 

Caroline: Opening the school was hard work. We needed lots of help. Fortunately we knew plenty of people with experience.

Alaric: Caroline was determined to make it a success. She wanted to make her mom proud. Plus, soon after the school opened, she got a most impressive donor…but that is the beginning of another story.

Elena: After med school, I came home to Mystic Falls. It felt right. It’s where I wanted to grow old and I did. And that’s my life: weird, messy, complicated, sad, wonderful, amazing, and above all epic. And I owe it all to Stefan. When I met him, I had lost my parents and I was dead inside, but he brought me back to life and I’m going to live it as best I can for as long as I can. Even after our long and happy life together, Damon is still worried he’ll never see Stefan again, that he’ll never find peace. But I know he’s wrong because peace exists. It lives in everything we hold dear. That is the promise of peace, that one day after a long life, we find each other again.

What do you think of the fact that (if I remember correctly), Shiro only decided to take one for the team and hit Matt to get in the arena after the Galra guy handed out a weapon-- before that, when Matt was like 'I'm never gonna see my family again', Shiro literally said 'You can do this'? (like, do you think Shiro really thought Matt would make it out of here at first, but seeing the need of a weapon made him realize that it wasn't gonna be easy at all? or something)

I think Shiro was trying to be encouraging/getting him to stay calm, honestly.  I don’t think Shiro thought any of them were going to survive, but saying that wasn’t going to help.  Shiro didn’t know he was going to need a weapon, though: he just stole one from the guards that was probably meant to scare them into compliance/take them out if they bolted.  

Honestly, I’m not sure there was a whole lot of thought to all of this, except ‘make sure Matt gets out’.  

I 100 percent believe that Shiro thought that everyone who walked into that arena was going to die.  He just figured out a way to save his friend.

get to know me meme: [5/10] movies

God says we need to love our enemies. It hard to do. But it can start by telling the truth. No one had ever asked me what it feel like to be me. Once I told the truth about that, I felt free. And I got to thinking about all the people I know. And the things I seen and done. My boy Trelaw always said we gonna have a writer in the family one day. I guess it’s gonna be me. The Help

my mom is really stressing me tf out recently, she keeps calling me asking what I’m gonna do when I graduate and she keeps telling me that she’s going to these conferences or galas and to send her my job info and interests so she can help me find something and like I know she has good intentions and everything but I have way too much to focus on and I’m already stressed enough about finding a job after graduation because my family thinks I’m gonna be some great hotshot with a fabulous life of traveling and I don’t wanna disappoint them

Reminder that the following conversation between Hook and David...(the father of the woman He claims to love) actually happened.
  • David : Stay away from my daughter
  • Hook : Well she can take care of herself. She doesn't need your parenting which is a good thing.
  • David : What does that mean?
  • Hook : It means you're gonna die in a day or so anyway
  • David : There's nothing I can do about that but IF I do die,...
  • Hook : WHEN
  • David : It'll be helping my family and that's something someone like you can't understand
  • Hook : What if I told you there's a way to save you?
  • David : I'd say no. Because anything that takes us off the cause of saving Henry is selfish! But, of course you'd think that was the way to GO.
  • Hook : You think I'm being selfish? I'm risking my life for all of you. Every moment am here aligned against him...
  • David : Please! You're not here out of any nobility. You're here for Emma. And let me tell you something else, you're never gonna get her! I'll see to that
  • Hook : It's a good thing you're gonna DIE then.

Hmm part of me thinks: when I graduate, wouldn’t it be cool to move out west or up north? Wouldn’t it be cool to live somewhere that I can be a lesbian without it being a Huge Deal? Wouldn’t it be cool to live somewhere liberal and progressive? But another part of me thinks… the Deep South is my home, it’s where I was raised, it’s where my ancestors have been since Jamestown, it’s where my entire family still lives, and the thing is… down here they NEED people like me! They need people to push for progress! They need older lesbians to help young queer girls learn that it’s gonna be okay! They need teachers who aren’t right wing conservative christians! They need artists! All the progressive people run from the south, they get old enough to graduate and they haul ass to the west or the north. And I get that, seriously I do. But wouldn’t it be better for me to stay? If I go somewhere more progressive then I won’t be pushing for change bc it will already BE okay, but if I stay in the Deep South I can help kids who are like me who are growing up here & feel trapped and alone and confused. I wanna help those kids so badly. I wanna be able to make a change in my home, in the places that I grew up. If everyone runs away from here the min they start thinking more progressively then guess what…. nothing is gonna change! Hateful bigoted parents & teachers are gonna raise hateful bigoted kids and the cycle is gonna go on forever! I wanna see a future where the Deep South isn’t a laughing stock & I wanna stay here to help make that happen.

You Will Get A VCR Thrown At Your Head

When I first started at this major retail chain (think 1999) I was 17 yrs old so very very green. When they asked me if I would mind working in electronics I said “yes” because… they could have fired me and I desperately needed the job to help my family.

So I go back there, as green as green can be, and they tell me where I’m gonna be working, what’s expected of me, yadda yadda yadda…

They turned to leave, but turned back and said “Oh. And I should tell you, you will get a VCR thrown at you.”

At the time the electronics area was completely boxed in, and anything from that department either had to be paid for back there or taken to the front of the store.

I chuckled, but they were dead serious. “No, seriously, you will get a VCR thrown at your head.”

They were wrong though. It was a tripod for camera. I politely asked if he would like to have it taken up front, or, if that was all he was purchasing, I could check you out right here.

And he like completely lost his shit. “I JUST WANT TO TAKE IT UP FRONT!”

And I calmly explained the policy, he turned bright red. And it was as though I became acutely psychic for about 5 seconds. Because I saw him raise it up and I actually managed to catch it mid air.

I caught it, pulled it against against my chest and with my heart pounding in my throat I said, “Thankyouandhaveaniceday.” Before turning around having a mild freak out.

He came back not 10 minutes later demanding to purchase the tripod. motioned for the other associate to come to me, and they could tell I was freaking out, so they came over just in case I needed a witness (or a body guard) I hesitantly wrung him up and he grumbled and bristled and groaned.

After the transaction was over he went to grab my badge and I said “Excuse me sir?”

And he said. “I WANT YOUR FUCKING NAME! I’M CALLING THE FUCKING HOME OFFICE ON YOU! THIS IS DISRESPECTFUL!”

So I told him my first name, and gave him my associate ID number because tbh, he wouldn’t know what to do with it, and it’s not like it’s my social security digits. And then he left in a huff.

But now I was freaking out even MORE. Because HOME OFFICE!!!

I said something to the department manager and she just smiled and said. “Darlin, he’s gonna call or e-mail the home office and inform them that you were following store policy and doing your job.” She patted me on the head (it might sound weird, but she meant it to be reassuring.) and said. “Good job. Keep it up.”

And I was like “Oh… she has a point.” And I suddenly stopped feeling so bad about having to stop people and potentially pissing them off.

“God says we need to love our enemies. It hard to do. But it can start by telling the truth. No one had ever asked me what it feel like to be me. Once I told the truth about that, I felt free. And I got to thinking about all the people I know. And the things I seen and done. My boy Trelaw always said we gonna have a writer in the family one day. I guess it’s gonna be me.”

do u ever think about how kagura had to see her mother die all alone and how she must have cared for her until her last moment without much help from the rest of her family while just being a small child. how alone she must have felt but how she still didn’t give up after all that and how she took her happiness into her own hands and doesn’t let her nature nor her past define her…
