she sat quietly across from the male that was eating dinner with her per her parents’ request. it was hard to feel comfortable around someone she knew hated her. the real her. not catalina. she picked at the food in front of her with her fork, giving the illusion that she would be consuming it. “i told my parents to make your favorite,” she smiled, shoving away all of her prior insecurities. he didn’t hate her. he couldn’t. she was catalina. for therapeutic reasons and otherwise. “i figured it might bring about some of the happier memories between us,” she added, stressing the last word to further allow the male to slip into the mindset of her being catalina. of course, catalina was only a week into the job, so she had a bit more research to do. she wasn’t one-hundred percent catalina yet. more like ninety-nine point nine.

Count this as a weird one (and also what the heck was going on with costumes in the nineties for superheroes), but rarepair featured here is from @krzed‘s fanfiction “Dredging Up the Past”! It’s *drumroll* Sabine Cheng as Ladybird and Gabriel Agreste as Chat Sidhe! What’s going on? Just… just read the story. It has some hilarious stuff going on with Sabine and Tikki hanging out, and then Marinette freaking out for… reasons. Oh, and there’s an appearance by a black cat.
Now then, tomorrow is “Longfic” for ML Fic Appreciation Week and “Sharing Food” for Ladynoir July! Hm hm! Just wait to see what happens! Later!
Dr. Seuss quotes
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.
I’m sorry to say so but, sadly it’s true; that bang-ups and hang-ups can happen to you.
Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.
Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.
And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed!
If you never did you should. These things are fun and fun is good.
Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So… get on your way.
The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.
God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?” -William A. Ward
Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone. -G.B. Stern
Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some. -Charles Dickens
A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves. -Henry Ward Beecher
Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul. -Henry Ward Beecher
If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice. -Meister Eckhart
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tunes without the words, and never stops at all. -Emily Dickinson
A true friend is a source of strength and hope. -Jonathan Lockwood Huie
Great hopes make great men. -Thomas Fuller
Beware how you take away hope from any human being. -Oliver Wendell Holmes
To live without Hope is to Cease to live. -Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Hopeful thinking can get you out of your fear zone and into your appreciation zone. -Martha Beck
If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream. -Martin Luther King, jr.
Joyce Meyer quotes
If we are to receive the blessings God wants to bestow upon us, we must be willing to give Him the messes in our lives.
It is God’s will to bless us, but not necessarily on our terms. Sometimes what we think would be a wonderful blessing would not bless us at all.
We must remember we are stewards of what God has provided for us, not owners.
Either we will spend our lives trying to take care of ourselves or we will let go and let God take care of us as we put our faith and trust in Him.
It is sad that today many times people give up in the hard times and never get to enjoy the fruit of all their labor.
If we continue to believe God and place our trust in Him, bad things ultimately give way to better things.
As believers, our joy and peace are not based in doing and achieving, but in believing. Joy and peace come as a result of building our relationship with the Lord.
He that can have patience can have what he will.
If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.
Woodrow T. Wilson
All things come to him who waits - provided he knows what he is waiting for.
Johann Friedrich von Schiller
Only those who have the patience to do simple things perfectly will acquire the skill to do difficult things easily.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Patience and fortitude conquer all things.
St. Francis de Sales
Have patience with all things, but first of all with yourself.
Everything comes gradually and at its appointed hour.

The shortest way beyond fear is through it.
Nothing is easy to the unwilling. Nothing is EASY to the unwilling.
We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.
It is inevitable that some defeat will enter even the most victorious life. The human spirit is never finished when it is defeated… it is finished when it surrenders.
draw only corrupt blood.
Advance, and never halt, for advancing is perfection. Advance and do not fear the thorns in the path, for they
We can do anything we want to do if we stick to it long enough.
How many a man has thrown up his hands at a time when a little more effort, a little more patience would have achieved success?
If you should put even a little on a little and should do this often, soon this would become big.
The miracle, or the power, that elevates the few is to be found in their industry, application, and perseverance under the prompting of a brave, determined spirit.
I feel compelled to pour my thoughts somewhere. The shock won’t wear off. Chester Bennington and Linkin Park were a huge part of my teenage years, the first band that I thought represented me. They understood me, even through thousands of miles, even when we didn’t know each other, they knew me, they knew how I felt, they got it. When I think back to my teen years every memory, or at least ninety percent of my memories, are tinted black. It was a dark period for me, not the only one but probably the first and, of course, it felt very, very impossible to survive at that moment. Linkin Park put words to my thought, feeling and emotions, their music helped me go through those bad and really bad days. Listening to their songs was listening to someone on the other side of the word screaming “you’re not alone, kid”.
I’m so sad and I’m so sorry. I won’t claim to know what kind of battles you were fighting, Chester, but I’m sorry the only way out of the pain you could see was this. It’s heartbreaking. You helped me see other paths, you and your music guided me away from choosing to end it all so I wouldn’t suffer anymore. Yet, somehow, you couldn’t find that for yourself.
Thank you, I will forever be thankful, for sharing your music, your talent and your struggles with us. Thank you for making songs so many of us could relate to, for putting words to the feelings so many of us were experiencing and couldn’t quite let out. I’m glad I got to know you through your work and I hope wherever you are now it’s better.
The ship is my: ‘Yuki is a big Tsundere and Sakon never shuts up about her because he’s her biggest fan’ ship
I consider this ship’s feelings: Mutual | Mixed | Strange | Awkward | Platonic | Sibling-like | One-sided | They don’t really like each other |
I’d consider the relationship:Healthy | Awkward | Abusive | Doesn’t work properly | They’d never get together |
Children: No | Yes | They’d think about it (Sakon is probably the only child Youxi needs, but it’d be nice if they had one. )
General Opinion: I love them! Youxi is a blessing to Sakon, not only because she managed to get him head over heels but due the fact that she actually called him out in his ‘I’m happy, I’m fine, nothing is wrong with me or whatsoever’ while bottling up his ninety nine unhealthy feelings inside. A romantic ship in where he opens his heart and reveals that he isn’t all sunshine and rainbows is great, as his affections feel more genuine and enjoyable to write.
The downside is that, he’ll never chill about his s/o and gives me second hand embarassment for everything he says/does.
They are pretty awkard while doing anything, and I think is pretty cute. He ends up teasing her both unwittingly and purporsely and then dies a little inside given that, regardless his image of suave and coquetish gambler, he has no idea what is doing aside trying to get her attention somehow. From her part, it was her the one who began pursuing him but still tries to seem as if she isn’t interested while blushing a lot at his countless compliments because she got a sappy boyfriend. They communicate pretty well, do dumb stuff and no matter the time or distance, once reunited, it’ll be as if they never got separated.
To be seen as the immature, reckless and overly-excited yet burderned and aimless teenager he is, counts as a ‘jackpot’ and as Sakon himself has said, she is his Lady Fortune and he feels the luckiest man to have found her ( —or rather, his dice worked as matchmaker ). Too bad Sengoku!Youxi dies young, so in the meantime, it’s better if he enjoys that happiness while he can. Rip Saks.
Arthur is an investment banker. He is professional and efficient. He’s a halfway decent cook. He’s totally independent and has been since the age of eighteen. Maybe he’s tired all the time because he works about ninety hours a week which is twice what normal people do, but he’s rich and he’s competent at his job. He’s almost thirty, and already a success.
And there are some things Arthur is not. For instance: Arthur is not gay.
People assume that Eames likes to be in perfect control of everything: how he presents himself to the world, how others see him, how an extraction goes down. That’s true, mostly. Sometimes. The reality is more complicated.
A story in which Eames is a sub who doesn’t like to be penetrated, and Arthur is a dom that really, really does.
Arthur is detective out to protect his investment.
Their routine is pretty solid by now. Arthur shows up to “arrest” Eames for solicitation, Arthur feeds him, Eames answers his questions, and gets paid before making his way back across town. Arthur is very good at convincing himself his only interest in the kid is as an asset. It has nothing to do with his sharp wit, or the way his eyes follow Arthur’s every move. Those plush lips and blunt hands are absolutely not something Arthur ever allows himself to think about while alone.
Saturday, 22 July 2017 : Commentary Saint Romanos Melodios
He who searches the heart and mind (Ps 7:10), knowing that Mary would recognise his voice, called to his lamb like a true shepherd (Jn 10:4), saying: “Mary!” At once she said: “Yes, this is indeed my good shepherd calling me, so that henceforth he might include me with the ninety-nine sheep (Lk 15:4). Behind him I see legions of saints, armies of righteous ones… Well I know who it is who calls me; as I have said: it is my Lord, the one who holds out resurrection to fallen men.”
Transported with love’s fervor, this young woman wants to take hold of him who fills all creation… But the Creator… raises her to the divine level, saying: “Touch me not; do you take me for a mere mortal? I am God; do not touch me… Raise your eyes above and consider the heavenly world; it is there you must seek me. For I am ascending to the Father whom I never left. I have always existed beside him; I share his throne; I receive the same honor, I, who hold out resurrection to fallen men.”
“From henceforth let your mouth proclaim all this and explain it to the children of the Kingdom, those who attend my awakening, I, the Living One. Go quickly, Mary, gather my disciples. In you I have a trumpet loudly sounding! Ring out a song of peace in the fearful hearing of my friends in hiding; arouse them all as if from sleep so that they may come to meet me. Go and say: ‘The bridegroom has awakened and is leaving his tomb. Apostles, cast away your mortal sadness for he has been raised who holds out resurrection to fallen men’”…
Mary exclaims: “Suddenly my mourning has been turned to dancing; everything has become joy and gladness to me. Unhesitatingly I say it: I have received the same glory as Moses (Ex 33:18f.). I have seen, yes, seen indeed, not on the mountain but in the tomb, not veiled by cloud but by a body, the master of both the bodiless and the clouds, their master yesterday, today and forever. To me he said: ‘Mary, make haste! Like a dove bearing an olive branch, go, proclaim the good news to Noah’s descendants (Gn 8:11). Tell them that death is destroyed and he is arisen who holds out resurrection to fallen men.’”
