part truth

the thing about humans is that our sinful nature leaves us with holes in our lives… there is emptiness and areas that are void which desire to be filled, and desire to be full. I believe God allows this for a reason. He allows emptiness and loneliness to happen in our lives because how we choose to fill these voids shows how we feel about God. do you fill the emptiness with drugs? sex? relationships? money? see, it doesn’t matter what you fill it with—it will continue to fail you each time and leave you the same way. empty spaces were put there by sin and God allows it because He wants you to fill those parts with His truth… His love. He is enough, and sometimes you come to this realization by failed attempts to fill the holes in your life but He will always show you what’s truly needed. we need Him. every day. every minute. every second. we belong to Him. the emptiness cries out for God, and only He can make us full.

happy valentine’s day, everybody!! <3 canon verse, 3k+

They finally get a lead on Kelly Kline on a Saturday. Spurred on by guilt and probably a bit of cabin fever, Castiel turns right around from the hunt he just returned from with Mary to chase her down.

“Oh,” Castiel says, turning. He sticks a hand into his coat pocket. “I almost forgot.”

It isn’t like him to forget things, so the move has to be calculated. Then again, he loses his phone all over the place. Maybe he really did just forget whatever it is. Dean’s startled out of his musing by a shiny projectile hurtling towards his face, which he catches gracelessly in one hand. The metal, whatever it is, feels cool in his palm. He blinks up at Castiel.

Summary: Jughead Jones, facing the reality of having nowhere to stay anymore when the Drive-In gets shut down, finds temporary shelter at the Blue & Gold office. But what happens when an upset Betty Cooper catches him on the act?

Read on AO3

(Sooooo, I’m watching Riverdale and my feels about Bughead are over the moon!! And now that we learnt some bits and pieces about his life and that he doesn’t have a house anymore (my heart is broken, I just love Jughead) I had no other choice but to write this, hope you all like guys!!!)


Jughead knew the routine by now. Scrunched down and trying to make his trademark combat boots as soundless as possible, the raven haired boy cautiously popped his head from the corner he was hiding, icy blue eyes scanning the empty corridor in from of him. A quarter to nine, the great clock over the entrance of Riverdale High informed him and he slightly frowned, biting anxiously on his down lip and drumming his slender fingers on the tiled wall next to him in anticipation. Radio commercials along with the icky sound of track soles stepping on wet floor could be heard faintly inside the now lifeless school building, a tell-tale sign that his misery for the day will soon be over and Jughead could be nothing but relieved about it. He was tired and even more so mentally tired, with all the small town drama and its joke of residents as well as his spiraling thoughts about his novel and the newfound reality he had to adjust to, that being his current situation of well, yeah, being homeless, plus the here and there thoughts about a certain girl next door, a girl he knew all his life and a girl he always knew belonged to his best friend, that lately seemed to invade his mind an awful more lot. Yeah, Jughead needed a place to lie down, even if that was the dusty floor of the Blue & Gold.

Part Eleven: Truth or Lies?

We don’t always tell the truth. Some of us struggle with this more than others, and unfortunately, what it evens out to is that what we say and what has happened are rarely exactly the same. Whether it’s knowingly lying or due to illness, truth and–more importantly–accuracy are not always present in our dialogue. It’s important we talk about this side of speech as it can play a huge part in our narratives. Remember way back in Part Three? “Everyone on the Same Page,” it was called. If the information being given to others isn’t accurate or truthful, that sentiment doesn’t hold. Everyone isn’t on the same page. We’re playing off different strategies because what we know isn’t current or complete. I become more and more aware of this as I struggle with a co-worker at one of our other offices who either dislikes talking, doesn’t realize those at other offices don’t have the information they have, or is simply too forgetful to share it (I’m not really sure what it is, but it’s frustrating). When we’re not working off the same information toward our common goal, things splinter and fall apart; they’re less efficient and things fall through a myriad of cracks neither party may have known existed. Information and the sharing of that information is crucial to success, and dialogue of some kind, written or spoken, is our best tool for passing that information along to our other characters.

Willful Misinformation: The definition of lying is being deliberately untruthful or giving false information. The idea that to be lying, a person must be conscious of the fact gives the concept of misinformation another, deeper level. When we think about lying, it’s often the straightforward telling of falsities, straight up wrong things or things that didn’t happen, the concoction of information to cover something up. Another option falls in the realm of lies of omission–lying by leaving something unsaid. These kinds of lies may be purposeful or not, but it remains: Characters have not been given all the information they need in order to act or understand, and the other character did not give that information. 

When deciding if your characters are going to lie or not, be sure you consider their motivations. Lies can be from malice and spite, or from a hope to protect themselves or someone else, selfishness or selflessness. I will say that the trope of willful misinformation and the confrontation that follows when others find out about the lie(s) is often overused and filled with melodrama. When writing these situations, consider first–not the emotional trauma that will need to be dealt with at some point, but rather the actions and ripple effects of the information other characters are now working on. How is not having everything or not having the real information going to change the game? What actions are characters going to take now, using the information they have, and how do those differ from the actions they would have taken if they had the other information?

Remember that lying and all its forms of deliberate misinformation impacts not only the people receiving the wrong information, but also the person doing the lying. How does keeping information or giving false information effect their emotions, relationships, actions, and speech? Are they well-accustomed to it and barely show it? How has that impacted their personality and the way they think about friends, family, and comrades? How does that manifest in the way they plan and strategize?

Unwitting Misinformation: There are many ways people provide misinformation without realizing it. The most common example is the unreliable narrator, where a story is told through the perspective of a person whose memory may be suspect, their biases may tint the story, they may not have experienced it in the same way it transpired, or they may not be able to tell the story with accuracy due to another reason, mental, physical, emotional, or otherwise. While we see stories where the events are suspect because of the narrator, the same sorts of issues can be present in characters without them being directly narrating. We can see characters who give the wrong information or speak falsely and it’s not because they are deliberately doing so, but may be because of any of the same reasons a narrator may be unreliable.

Perhaps a character has a perspective on events that tints their memories, or the events are traumatic, or they misremember them, or a mental illness hinders their ability to process and/or tell the events accurately. They may not be willfully giving inaccurate information, but they are nonetheless. It’s important to remember that this can be the case, because the giving of false information is so often attributed to purposeful lying that we blame those who give these falsities without considering their intent behind it. It’s not always malicious or to protect someone else. Sometimes, it’s just a byproduct of being human and the condition we find ourselves in.

Think about how other characters may deal with someone who is known to view the world very differently than themselves–maybe it’s cultural worldviews or religious views or something unrelated to health status that causes them to mention or not mention certain things. Think outside the normal reasons for misinformation to help diversify the effect. Just as with true, deliberate lies, consider how actions taken by other characters would change with the misinformation, true information, and the knowledge that they were given misinformation.

One last point: Jokes often stem from misinformation, as does sarcasm. Be aware of how these untrue details, spread sometimes as a joking response to a question, can become truths for someone else. Or even, by repeating a false story enough times, that untruth becomes the speaker’s truth, whether they know the original tale or not. The slow transformation of untruth to truth, and truth to falsity, changes the dynamics of events, relationships, and perspective. Take all of them into consideration. After all, jokes relying on false information are how rumors and stereotypes get started.

Next up: Yes. It’s the tag talk.
