my heart is a weapon of war

rape being used as a weapon of war is so heart wrenching. it was used during the partition of india, the french used it in algeria, serbians used it against bosnian women, it’s being used right now in syria and what’s so heart breaking is the fact that women choose to commit suicide because of the possibility of being raped. humanity never learns, we really have failed.

Day 20 : Coffee Shop

@coffee-without-a-pause told me my Hux was always a jerk (well, for a good reason!!!), so I tried to draw a nice Hux. This feels so wrong :(

This war has brought us pain and suffering… and loss. But it’s also brought us together–as soldiers, allies… friends. This bond that ties us together is something the Reapers will never understand. It’s more powerful than any weapon, stronger than any ship. It can’t be taken or destroyed. The next few hours will decide the fate of everyone in the galaxy. Every mother. Every son. Every unborn child. They’re trusting you… depending on you to win them their future. A future free from the threat of the Reapers. But take heart. Look around you. You’re not in this fight alone. We face our enemy together, and together we will defeat them.

a c h i l l e s ;

you are a war drum.
your name is a battle chant
on ten thousand lips,
you are a weapon to be pointed.

born for war but made,
piece by precious piece
by the love of a man more gentle
than you could have dreamed.

you know your pride is vicious,
it is far sharper than any spear
you wield. it will destroy
more than you know.

a c h i l l e s;

when he dies you will feel
like the world is burning,
like the stars are dying
one by one.

there are some wounds that don’t heal.

—  achilles // l.s

For weeks did the battle rage on, and those who had taken up the mantle of war grew weary and their courage began to falter.

Then did Balthazar, god of war and fire, appear to the soldiers, carrying with him a grand sword that did glow with such brilliance it blinded any who looked upon it. When he spoke, His voice was like thunder, and it shook the ground with force.

Then saith He, “Lift up thy weapons. For you are my soldiers, and must you be steadfast, strong, and brave of heart. They who neither hesitate nor stumble shall be rewarded. Then shall you have glory. Then shall your deeds be remembered for eternity.”

Ichimatsu: Lethal Weapon Human

Ichimatsu dressed as the Lethal Weapon Human, who is said to have been created by being fused with lethal weapons through reconstructive surgery. Because of the fairly stiff equipment, there’s an impression that his actual body is turning.

for @knox​, who wanted to see the translation for haunted house ichi! and honestly I don’t blame him, this is one of my all-time fave ichis in heso wars (I powered through this event solely for him I gave zero fucks about the other ones)

“Are you a lover or a fighter?”. He asked me with a mischievous smile.
“Darling..I’m both”; I said.  I’m a lover and a fighter
I’m the sweet princess locked in a tower
A warrior who slays her own dragons
I’m the queen of chess who nurtures and sings
Strategizes, devises plans
Upholding the oath to protect my king
I’m a poet… choice of weapon my  mouth
As a guard I stand, with a flower in my hair
Keeping vigil over your precious heart
On the front line of the battle ground
I’ll be holding an arrow and a bow
Shooting  words, poems and songs

You see, I am the type of girl who lays your head on my  lap
and sings you to sleep at night
In the darkest of hours..when you need my back
Ready I will be, to go to war and fight the good fight

What am I? For I am  just
Your refuge, your harbor
your base, your haven
Your knightess in shining armor

anonymous asked:

How do you conquer someone's heart?

“In Love, like in War, every weapon is useful.
What’s more effective that some good old italian food?
Pizza, gnocchis, even babàs and tiramisu are good for this.
I could give you my recipes, but then I would have no weapons left!”

Petition to make Emilie Autumn the new leader of the Feminist Movement

Emilie Autumn is one of the most powerful people I know. She has been a feminist for a long time. Supports LGBTQ, Suffers from mental disorders, and still has a beautiful soul.

She is a singer, songwriter, actress, writer, a hell of an electric violinist, and probably so much more.

She has several albums out, the three main ones are Enchant (2003), Opheliac (2005), and Fight like a Girl (2012) also know by the acronym F.L.A.G.

Her most prominent song is Fight Like a Girl, no coincidence that it is also the name of the album on which it appears. The lyrics to that, and many other songs are very powerful, and also motivates people to fall in love with her.

Select lyrics from song:

Fight Like a Girl:

My Heart is a weapon of war / my voice is my weapon of choice / an eye for an eye / a heart for a heart / a soul for a soul / we fight for the dream / we fight to the death / we fight for control.

I’ll get my revenge on the people or at least 49% of the people in it / and if I end up with blood on my hands / well I know, that you’ll understand / cause I fight like a Girl.


her song Liar, which seems to me to shed some light on the constant excuse abusers have for their victims:

I want to hold you to the sun / I want to be your favorite one / I want to show you all the beauty / you don’t even know you hold / I’m hurting you for your own good / I’d die for you, you know I would / I’d give up all my wealth / to buy you back the soul I never sold.

The song continues, with Emilie screaming Liar many times over, because the truth is that they are liars. There is no reason to beat a woman. You are not hurting her for her own good. You’re hurting her to make you feel good about yourself. And that means you are just disgusting.

Nearly every woman has been verbally accosted by disgusting men, and, of course, are constantly told that they shouldn’t be upset at such actions because it’s just the fact that they’re pretty. Her song: Thank God I’m Pretty, expresses the experience women go through when hearing such vulgar words:

Thank God I’m pretty / The occasional free drink I never ask for / The occasional admission to a seedy little bar / invitation to a strangers car / I’m blessed / with the ability to rend a grown man tongue tied / which only means that when it’s dark outside / I have to run and hide / can’t look behind me / Thank God I’m pretty.

Oh, Oh and when a gaggle of faces appears around me / It’s lucky I hate to be taken seriously / I think my ego would fall right through the cracks in the floor / If I couldn’t count on men to slap my ass anymore / I know my destiny’s such, that I’m all stocking and curl / So everybody thinks that I’m a fucking suicide girl.

Too many women have had their innocence taken away from them by goblins that didn’t ask. That took what they wanted. Well, in Emilie’s song: I want my innocence back, she enunciates exactly what her intentions with those men are

I want my innocence back / and if you can’t give it to me / I will cut you down / And I will run you through / with the dagger you sharpened / On my body and soul / Before you slit me in two / And then devoured me whole

I want my innocence back / and if you can’t pacify me / I will break your bones / you think I’m bluffing just try me / I will never forget / The words you used to ensnare me / Till my dying day / You’ll suffer for this I swear.

If you feel better describes the constant verbal and physical assault women have dealt with over the years, trying to justify their reasons for such treatment, once again enunciating the constant words spoken, until the end, when she explains the consequence of what those actions were: 

Won’t make me sorry cause I’m cruel / won’t hurt the feelings I don’t have / Won’t break the hear that isn’t there you’ll find / But if you feel better / Telling me I’m cruel / Saying I’m unfeeling / I don’t mind

She explains in such elegant words that the men wanting to push women down, have now turned them into the very thing they were afraid they were.

Her life with mental illness, and her obsession with Victorian era have created an overlay, in which she tells about how the treatment of the mentally ill, particularly the mentally ill women, were treated in those days, and how not much have changed in that regard. In her song, Girls! Girls! Girls!, which sounds to be quite fun and jolly to the unlistening listener, is actually thinly veiled sarcasm and contempt on how mentally ill women are laughed of for the ills that they suffer, sometimes how people would pay to see the mentally ill woman in the cage.

Come see our girls, crazy girls / If you’re willing to be thrilled, this is a hell of a ride / those girls, crazy girls / They’re hot, they’re nuts, they’re suicidal / tickets cheap, it’s a crime / And they’re half price after 4 o’ clock, so toss us a dime to see these lovely freaks of nature for a limited time / Come see those girls, girls, girls.

At the end of the song, Emilie Autumn illuminates exactly what it would take to be institutionalized in both the Victorian and sometimes even in the so-called modern era

I’ve got a lot more words to say, but I just can’t make them rhyme / So ladies let this be a lesson to you, keep your hair uncut / your corsets tight, your morals high / Your knitting neat, your yappers shut / This is what comes of over-educating / mentally over-stimulating / too much serious conversating / organized religion-hating / sinful un-wed copulating / marriage without pro-creating / girl-on-girl caught lesbiating / she was caught while masturbating / male-mind manipulating / chronically hallucinating / certainly there’s no debating / some we just find fascinating / women’s rights facilitating / independent thought creating / she may just be complicating / get your money out we’re waiting / to see those / Girls! Girls! Girls!


I could continue, but I believe that I have made my point. Emilie Autumn has fought for women’s rights for a long time. Though her talents are un-contested, her unique style of music along with her constant refusal to bow down to those that believe themselves to be superior has prevented her from rising into view by every body. Her love of Shakespeare is often intertwined within her songs, most prominently shown in Opheliac, which you no doubt have noticed is a play on Ophelia. 

If you made it this far, then I would beg you to reblog this and send it to everyone else. Emilie Autumn must be known. By everyone. She has attacked the cheese puff president on twitter, constantly calling him out on a lot of things such as, the immigration ban, the ridiculous laws he has been passing, and many many other things that, if I start to go into, then this post will be twice as long and I know that the tumblr society doesn’t read posts this long. 

I hope I have held your attention this long.

Thank you for your time.

“Elastic Heart” by Sia

“Why not fight this war without weapons?
And I will stay up through the night
Let’s be clear, I won’t close my eyes
And I know that I can survive
I walked through fire to save my life
And I want it, I want my life so bad
And I’m doing everything I can
Then another one bites the dust
It’s hard to lose a chosen one”

Usually I’d be listening to Jake give last-minute instructions right now. I’d be laughing at the jokes Marco tells right before we do something insanely dangerous.

Tobias would probably be flying overhead, giving his version of an aerial traffic report. Rachel would be getting all macho, her bravery bolstering mine.

I was hit again by how alone I was. I missed them. I missed them so much.

Sol has said this before, but the reason Cassie’s battle morph is the wolf is because wolves endure. Cassie manages to make a new ally, save an old ally, infiltrate the Yeerk pool, care for her sick friends, and perform FREAKING BRAIN SURGERY…all by herself. This book proves once and for all that her compassion and ability to love all creatures is a strength, not a weakness.

me, reading a book about vampires and incubi at war with each other: yeah, i have a refined taste in books - my favorite book is heart of darkness!

Preference: Warrior Queen

Anonymous asked: Can I get Roose, Ramsay, Theon (#TeamDreadFortTrash), Jamie, Oberyn, Robb and whoever else you want to add to this long list’s reaction to meeting a warrior queen, she wears armour, rides a stallion and everything? It’s up to you if they fall in love or not.

((Uhhh sooo…writer’s block an crap…sooo sorry if this isn’t as good as my usual or some sound repetitive.))

Roose Bolton – Roose would probably just sit back and watch to see what side of the war you are on. Unlike most other men, he would accept that you have talent and try to buy your service in order to achieve his own goals and satisfy his own hidden agenda.

Ramsay Bolton/Joffrey Baratheon – Would have some kind of creepy attraction to you and your ability with a weapon. They would do whatever was necessary to win your alliance and your heart. Although, they would probably quickly get jealous and annoyed at the fact you are better with an arsenal of weapons than they are.

Theon Greyjoy – Growing up on the Iron Islands, he would be used to female warriors. He would instantly be attracted to your skills with a weapon and your fierceness, your willingness to do whatever was needed. As the Prince of the Iron Islands, he would try to woo you in order to get you to be his Queen when he came into his throne.

Jaime Lannister – Being a warrior is everything to Jaime. Unlike others, he wouldn’t be sexually attracted to you…those feelings are reserved for his twin sister…but he would be a really good friend and would always have your back. Like his relationship with Brienne, he would mock you for wearing armor and wielding a sword instead of marrying and having babies, but at the end of the day he would respect you.

Oberyn Martell – Like Jaime, he would respect your talent. But unlike Jaime, he would be lustfully attracted to you and would do his best to get you into his bed. His position as Prince of Dorne would help him a great deal in getting to your heart, and you would be one of the few people to see his softer side. He would protect you with his life, even though you’d constantly tell him you didn’t need him to watch out for you, and he would do and give you anything.

Robb Stark – The Young Wolf would be amazed by your talent. Growing up in the North, besides the Mormont he would be unused to female warriors and he would love watching you dance around the court yard/camp practicing with the others. He would be too shy to talk to you, and when he had to, he would stumble and stutter the entire time while blushing furiously.

Sandor Clegane – Sandor wouldn’t give a shit what you can do with a sword as long as you can back up whatever “shit” came out of your mouth. He would always come to your aid when needed, but for the most part would leave you to your own devices.

Daario Naharis – Much like Oberyn, he would flirt and try to seduce you into his bed. Upon meeting you, his alliance with Daenerys would slowly shift. Especially when he saw how well of a fighter you truly were, something Daenerys Stormborn isn’t. He would give you his sword and his life if it meant he could be at your side.

Playing Heart of Thorns as a norn looks like that…….

I must admit that was my real goal. Saving Tyria, Trahearne & Cie? Who cares! We can finally kill Faolain! °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°

If you wonder where the Commander and Braham found alcohol….. Gondul always have those two weapons in her inventory :

Moonshine and Ambrosia.

A norn is a norn, get over it.
