pillars of the kings

xzacloudx  asked:

Pillartale! Where everyone's a pillar! XD Ok, jokes aside, I honestly think King Asgore would have a CHANCE of showing up for the bros; everyone in the game talks fondly about him as if he does mingle with the people a lot. Papyrus is clearly familiar with him, judging by his dialog after you defeat him in Neutral/Pacifist route. And Sans's Judgment Hall is VERY close to him. And the Santa thing. I'm sure the Flowey threat would have been major news, so the King might check on the town's savior.

Oh gdi, stop giving me ideas! XD this epilogue’ epilogues will never end!

A blessing for a new family

This was a quick blessing for my newborn niece and her family. I will apply the same blessing to my new born nephew too. This can be done with gifts, added sigils instead of runes, or you can ommit those entirely and just speak the words over and over before saying the blessing. I used what I had to hand, but you can correspond as necessary.

What I used;

A large pillar candle, three runes (happiness, protection, harmony), incense (oak king to relax and clear the air)

I placed a rune on each side of the candle before lighting, and once the candle started burning down, I spoke these words;

May the home of __________ be filled with happiness, harmony and protection from evil

May it bring calm, tranquil sanctuary, a haven for youth and growth

Provide a home for love and care, and may it never perish or dissolve

Give to them safety, and give to them unity, for they are loved

Let them have peace, happiness and protection

I allowed the candle to burn a little longer before extinguishing it safely, cleared away everything and then lit the incense.


Thutmose IV’s Peristyle Hall
Originally built by Thutmose IV - 1401 BCE to 1391 BCE.
Destroyed by: Amenhotep III - 1390 BCE to 1352 BCE.

“Only four of the pillars composing the peristyle of Thutmose IV remain in situ at Karnak today.  A large section of the peristyle was removed in ancient times during the dismantling of the Thutmose II “festival hall.”  Today, the remains of the structure found during modern work at Karnak have been reconstructed at the temple’s Open Air Museum.  Many of the recovered blocks still have relief scenes accented with vivid red, yellow, green-blue and blue paint.  The raised relief scenes on the pillars depict the king embracing the god Amun.  The inscriptions reference the jubilee (heb-sed) festival of Thutmose IV.”

Today in Middle-Earth: The Fellowship pass the Argonath and camp at Parth Galen (February 25th, 3019 T.A.)

 'Behold the Argonath, the Pillars of the Kings!’ cried Aragorn. ‘We shall pass them soon. Keep the boats in line, and as far apart as you can! Hold the middle of the stream!’

As Frodo was borne towards them the great pillars rose like towers to meet him. Giants they seemed to him, vast grey figures silent but threatening. Then he saw that they were indeed shaped and fashioned: the craft and power of old had wrought upon them, and still they preserved through the suns and rains of forgotten years the mighty likenesses in which they had been hewn.

Frisk’s Bizarre Adventure

Closed RP with @thecityofrevelations

::They say legends are forged from willing participants. No one ever became a legend by staying under the covers all day. But some people don’t accept their fate until much later. Stone masks, vampires, stands? What the hell is this bullshit that everyone talks about. All of it is completely made up. Pillars that sucked the life out of people… A king vampire coming back to wrack vengeance against a family line full of both willing and unwilling participants? Yeah. Naw. 

Frisk just wanted to attend High school and live a normal life. After Grandfather died, they found themselves moving to Chicago, a heavy suitcase in one hand and a large scowl on her face. Apparently she had an uncle who was willing to let her stay with them until she was legally old enough to move out. Being 17 sucked, but being broke with no legitimate family sucked just as much. She chose to go by the last name Dreemurr, which was picked by her adopted family. Because she really couldn’t remember if she had an actual real last name… Or first name in that matter. She went by Frisk. Regardless of whether or not that was her true name. 

It was a true enough name for her…

The whole idea of starting in a new school at her senior year was rough. She’d have to make all new friends and rejoin all of the clubs she was in. All she wanted was a normal life. But that wasn’t what the cards had in store for her…

She left the house around 7:30AM to make her way to school. She had been more interested in keeping her eyes on the trail ahead, not following the shadows that were stalking her in the darkness before the sunrise. Her hearing was pretty good though, because she paused in order to gather her thoughts.

“Come out.”

No one followed suit. 

“I said. GET THE HELL OUT OF THE SHADOWS AND FIGHT ME!” She growled, tossing her backpack to the ground. Her eyes narrowed suspiciously as it appeared nothing was going to reveal itself to her. She found her backpack once more and continued her trek to the inner city school.

Eyes wormed their way into her back as she entered the small classroom and caught the eyes of her science teacher. He was a little… young. Frisk bit her lip as she walked over to his desk and blinked slowly.

“Frisk Dreemurr. I believe this is my homeroom?”::
