Forsythia – Anticipation

Mandisa paced back and forth in front of the Eluvian. She had crossed it with Morrigan, Iron Bull, Dorian and Cole, safely making it back to Skyhold, but there was one problem. All the others were still in the Arbor Wilds. She ran all over the castle, trying to find someone, anyone, who had been fighting there, but alas, the troops were not back. All right. She was strong, she could handle this. Cullen was a warrior, he could defend himself just fine. Seeing him fight just before she entered the Temple made her remember that. Usually so calm and sometimes even cold, seeing the Inquisitor like this was slightly unsettling for her friends. Dorian had to pull her aside, sit her down and calm her as she was on the verge of a panic attack. She was not only worried about Cullen, all her troops were there, as well as Leliana and Josephine, two women dear to her heart.

Mandisa remained surrounded by her friends most of the time. Since her advisors were not back yet, there was nothing she could do. She spent her sleepless nights writing a detailed report of the events at the Temple of Mythal and trying to make sense of all the whispers at the back of her mind. Sometimes, she and Dorian would stay up together, him looking through books and her writing reports. She often took walks with Cole in the garden, sometimes praying, but mostly wandering the space. Bright yellow flowers caught her eye, so she stopped to take a look.

“Waiting, desperate, worried, you care so much about them, about him. The flowers are nice, they remind you of the colour around his iris. He is alive, he will make it,” Cole whispered in the silence of the garden.

Mandisa’s hand lingered on a branch, touching the delicate petals.

“Yes, he will be back soon,” she added with a small smile.

but what if one day

Its headcanon time: Lance might be Altean!

So correct me if im wrong, and im quickly writing this bc its late and shit, but we know one thing right?

Allura is the only person that can open a wormhole.

Except… not.

If Allura would be the only one to be able to open a wormhole, how did Lance reach planet Arus?

He wouldn’t be able to.

Now, i know this might seem unlikely. The lion could’ve opened the portal too, right?

No, because that would mean that allura simply didn’t need to create wormholes, because the lion would be able to open it himself. Allura explicitly states that, even if theres enough quintessence, someone needs to manually open the portal.

We gotta keep in mind that Lance doesn’t have his “special thing”. Hes the most balanced character of all, who has the least unique qualities. Shiro has his past, Pidge their family, Keith his Galra-ness, Allura had her problems ith the Galra’s and Hunk is the cook/sweetheart (who in imo can have some more qualities too). He knows it himself, too.

Lance is, though, an extremely perceptive person, and it isnt the first time that things that he has said lead to foreshadowing (“why are the galras finding us?” “I dont know, but i bet its keiths fault” implying that keith has a relation to the galra). In episode 1, Lance literally says to keith “I’ll stick u in a wormhole!”

Foreshadowing?

Lance, too, was the one who caught Allura, who’s an Altean, and is the closest paladin to Coran. He also was the first one to activate his lion. And hes the only one sleeping in Altean robes.

Now, I’m not necessarily saying that Lance is Altean, but at least his quintessence is close to theirs. But it wouldn’t surprise me if Lance somehow has something to do with the Alteans.

Feel free to add on to this post if u found things too!

The Signs As Bad Lovers (aka the negative side of the signs in love)
  • *Requested--- Use Moon or Venus*
  • Aries: Self-absorbed and Immature. Theyre selfish and look out for themselves before anybody else, including you. They tend to come off as insensitive and have a "suck it up" attitude towards emotions. They anger easily and take out their frustrations on you.
  • Taurus: Stubborn and Lazy. Incredibly scared of change to the point of controlling behavior. Too stubborn to let anything go, using it against you every chance they get. They'll hold a grudge through the whole relationship. They need complete stability and feel threatened by even minor changes.
  • Gemini: Flighty and Argumentative. They need constant change and variety resulting in dismissive behavior. They hate being tied down and fear commitment. They'll pick fights just to get a debate out of you. They spend more time charming new people than spending time with you.
  • Cancer: Moody and Defensive. They take everything you say personally and jump to conclusions. Incredibly jealous and manipulative. Theyll victimize themselves anytime you do something slightly upsetting. Theyre childish and quick to upset.
  • Leo: Overdramatic and needy. They do anything to get your attention, including acting out or purposely pissing you off. They'll try to make you jealous and if you point out their behavior, react unreasonably.
  • Virgo: Picky and Boring. They always have to be right and never let an argument go without proving you wrong (even if youre not). Theyre over critical of everything you do and say. If theres a flaw, they point it out.
  • Libra: Flaky and Flashy. They jump from lover to lover. They have to show off their partner but quickly move onto the next. Theyre incredibly indecisive and generally dont really know what they want, causing problems between both of you.
  • Scorpio: Possessive and Jealous. They're incredibly paranoid of their lovers and it results in jealousy. They accuse their lovers often and refuse to show remorse, often using excuses to justify their intentions. Theyre not emotionally accessible. and keep everything to themselves.
  • Sagittarius: Self-righteous and contradicting. They dont want to be held down as theyre free spirits at heart yet they dont want you to be flighty. They jump into things headfirst without thinking it through, including decisions involving both of you. They can be rather dismissive, hurting your feelings by disregarding your thoughts.
  • Capricorn: Harsh and Insensitive. They tell the cruel truths that you dont want to hear. These truths can even be downright mean. They know the time for work and the time for play and scold you if you dont. They set higher than achievable standards for you making them difficult to please.
  • Aquarius: Distant and Aloof. They seem cold, keeping their emotions deep inside rarely letting you catch a glimpse. Often times, their feelings are a guessing game and you find yourself questioning their love. They act as though theyre better than you and others.
  • Pisces: Manipulative and self-victimizing. They need your attention and affection constantly. If they dont get it, they immediately victimize themselves and guilt you into feeling sorry. Theyre incredibly clingy and are hurt easily, even if youre just pointing out a minor bad habit. They talk more about their feelings than they listen yours. When theyre upset they turn to unhealthy cooing mechanisms and blame you afterwards.

@ people who have food issues cause of their illness

im sorry if eating has become more of a burden than a pleasure for you

im sorry if people dont understand and think youre just a picky eater

im sorry if youre afraid to eat, afraid of the pain or concequences that come with eating

im sorry if you cant talk about your food issues because its an “inappropriate topic” to bring up.

im sorry if people feel like theyre entitled to know your issues, im sorry if youve been robbed of that personal privacy.

im sorry if going to restaurants is really hard for you, you dont deserve to go through this, to have something that should be fun made into a hell

im sorry if you have to watch other people eat food that you love and that you cant eat cause of your illness.

im sorry if you have to starve all day when you go out because the place youre at has nothing you can eat

im sorry if you cant go out and be carefree about what you have to eat because you have to worry about what itll do to you

im sorry if theres a type of food you loved and you had to give up cause of your illness

im really sorry people think that youre just complaining over nothing when you talk about how much you miss not worrying or not being able to eat a type of food,

you have every right to mourn what your illness has taken from you, whether it be the food itself, the love of eating, the lack of worry, or the concequences of eating something, etc etc.

im sorry if the holidays have turned into the worst times for you, im sorry if family or friends arent understanding or if just watching everyone be able to eat anything any time they want makes you upset.

you have every right to any emotion this makes you feel

im sorry if people push off your issues to “oh if they just ate less/more theyd feel better”

im sorry if youre told to stop complaining because you “dont have it that bad”

you matter

your issues matter

and you will get through this.

theres alot of other things, im sure, butthis is all i can think of for now.

Reader problems
  • Me analyzing a school book: the mood is sad and there's like some character development I guess in this chapter like line 81
  • Me talking about a book I read for pleasure: OMG OK SO LIKE THIS CHARACTER IS MY CHILD THEY ARE SO PRECIOUS THIS BOOK IS AMAZING THIS SCENE IS SO PIVOTAL IN CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT IT LITERALLY SETS UP THE EXPOSITION AND FORESHADOWS THIS BUT YOU DON'T SEE IT COMING RIGHT OMG I KNOW AND THEN THIS SCENE IS AN ALLUSION TO THAT AND THERE ARE SO MANY METAPHORS COMPARING THIS TO THAT SO I GUESS you could say this book is written in reference to oppression faced by humans by their own government
Deep Longings of the Signs
  • Aries: Wishes others will stop underestimating them. People tend to look as aries as immature, hotheaded, like a child. An aries would much rather be seen as who they really are; intelligent, driven, and mature. When their emotions take over, they get put down for it and it hurts them.
  • Taurus: Wishes to be heard. Tauruses are only stubborn because they feel like their point is not being understood by others. they want someone to listen to what they have to say instead of telling them that they are wrong.
  • Gemini: They want to have control of themselves. Geminis often feel out of control and run away from problems by distracting themselves. They want the twins to agree with one another, but its difficult when the positive and the negative are constantly in battle.
  • Cancer: They want to stop worrying. Constantly being paranoid and feeling that theyre wrong in some way destroys them. They feel that someone is against them at all times, even when they know that theres nothing to worry about
  • Leo: They want to love themselves. they long for the day they look in the mirror and are proud of what they see. They never have a problem with loving others, but deep down, they feel that they dont have enough love for themselves.
  • Virgo: They long for someone to silence their head. Virgos never stop thinking, analytically and the logic makes them feel overwhelmed. They want someone to allow them to give their heart a chance
  • Libra: They want someone to reassure them. They need to know if theyre making the right decision. Although they are well balanced, this causes a conflict within them and it makes them full of anxiety
  • Scorpio: They long for a partner who will understand that they don't mean to hurt anyone. They love so passionately that it can be seen as aggressive and controlling, but that's not their intention.
  • Sagittarius: They long for true love. Although are known to be hard to tie down, they are deep lovers and see spiritual depth within relationships. They search for their soulmate but often overlooks them by accident.
  • Capricorn: They wish they can form deeper bonds with others. They may feel heartless and unemotional, when they are actually sensitive. They're afraid of getting hurt
  • Aquarius: They wish for someone to see right through them. Aquariuses are known to be mysterious, but they wish that someone would understand.
  • Pisces: They crave love and affection. They want to be nurtured and loved as deeply as they love others. Pisces often feel that the love they give is not mutual, they just want to be accepted for who they are.

somebody called my “johnny gat is a hufflepuff” post a “fucking bad post” and i’d like to cordially invite them to this follow-up:

the defining hufflepuff trait is LOYALTY. johnny isn’t bookish like a ravenclaw, he’s not ambitious enough for slytherin, and he’s not self-righteous like gryffindor. that boy’s a badger all the way.

anonymous asked:

So I injured my hand while cooking the other day and I had to use my non-dominant one; and it sucked. But I've been thinking; what if this whole left-handed, right-handed stuff is just human thing? Like there's their human friend with broken arm, but he's able to do their everyday routine without problem (with a bit of cursing of course). And there's this other human with broken arm unable to anything. Can't even properly write. And aliens are just: ????

Actually, it’s definitely not just a human thing! Handedness* for a while was considered to be only something found in great apes including humans, according to National Geographic, but has been observed in kangaroos (who are primarily left-handed, FYI, so a bunch of you southpaws could go commiserate with them over blurred ink and uncomfortable scissors). Here are a couple more sources to check out, and all those links cite at least a few studies.

So you could either posit handedness as an Earth thing, or posit it’s likely aliens have innate preferences as well, so perhaps they would have a 100% rate of preferring one side as a species and what they’d find odd is that humans can be either right or left handed, or ambidextrous.

*Pause, for a second, to appreciate the word “handedness” because it is fun

anonymous asked:

Just a PSA more and more asian women are going missing in western countries. A chinese woman was in France staying at a 5 star hotel and was called to the lobby at 3 am, she refused to go down and they ended up knocking on her door. She went down but also pulled her police on speed dial and made sure she had a way to get out. 2 men were downstairs and when she began to run back to the elevator they chased her. She is ok now, but theres a whole organization kidnapping asian women.

I’m glad she’s okay but what’s more frightening is that media coverage on human trafficking is lacking. Even when it’s covered, it’s rarely treated as a human rights issue (16%) instead, it’s treated more as a crime (54%). When an issue is treated more so as a crime, then solutions rely more on laws rather than help. Laws neither effectively nor directly address the problem.

If we go by the numbers provided, Asian women age 18 or older are the most trafficked group of people worldwide. So I believe you’re right in that there are entire organizations that kidnap Asian women (or attempt to). In addition, it’s not just organizations, it’s an entire industry.

Highlights from All the Bright Places
  • Finch: .. it's only when I'm awake that I think about dying.
  • Finch: Worthless. Stupid. These are the words I grew up hearing. They're the words I try to outrun, because if I let them in, they might stay there and grow and fill me up and in, until the only thing left of me is worthless stupid worthless stupid worthless stupid freak.
  • Finch: This time will be different. This time, I will stay awake.
  • Finch: "My own brain is to me the most unaccountable of machinery-- always buzzing, humming, soaring roaring diving,, and then buried in the mud. And why? What's this passion for?"
  • Violet: "If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger."
  • Violet: Like everything else that doesn't last, today is gone now, but it was a pretty good day.
  • Finch: You have to live your life like you'll never be sorry. It's easier to do the right thing from the start so there's nothing to apologize for.
  • Finch: I know life well enough to know you can't count on things staying around or standing still, no matter how much you want them to.
  • Finch: The problem with people is they forget that most of the time it's the small things that count. Everyone's so busy waiting in the Waiting Place. If we stopped to remember that there's such a thing as a Purina Tower and a view like this, we'd all be happier.
  • Finch: What if life could be this way? Only the happy parts, none of the terrible, not even the mildly unpleasant. What if we could just cut out the bad and keep the good?
  • Finch: (referring to "impending, weightless doom") I like the idea of something that can give you those feelings all the time. I want something like that, and then I look at Violet and think: There she is.
  • Finch: I walk through the black Indiana night, under a ceiling of stars, and think about the phrase "elegance and euphoria," and how it describes exactly what i feel with Violet.
  • Finch: I pull her in and kiss her the way I've always wanted to kiss her, a lot more R-rated than PG-13.
  • Finch: Ultraviolet Remarkey-able, I think I love you.
  • Finch: The future is uncertain, but that can be a good thing.
  • Finch (while strangling Roamer): You put me here. You did this. It's your fault, your fault, your fault.
  • Finch: If a song's meant to stay around, you carry it with you in your bones.
  • Finch (quoting Cesare Pavese): "We do not remember days, we remember moments."
  • Finch: Decca, sometimes there's beauty in the tough words-- it's all in how you read them.
  • Violet: People like Theodore Finch don't die. He's just wandering.
  • Violet: May your eye go to the Sun, To the wind your soul .... You are all the colors in one, at full brightness.
  • Violet: What a terrible feeling to love someone and not be able to help them.
  • Violet: I didn't know that my life forever changing would be because you loved me and then left, and in such a final way.
  • Violet: Just because they're dead, they don't have to be. And neither do we.
  • Finch: You make me love you, And that could be the greatest thing my heart was ever fit to do ....
  • : Theodore Finch-- I was alive. I burned brightly. And then I died, but not really. Because someone like me cannot, will not, die like everyone else. I linger like the legends of the Blue Hole. I will always be here, in the offerings and people I left behind.
  • Jennifer Niven: ... it is important to talk about what happened.
  • Theodore Finch: You are all the colors in one, at full brightness.
