protector of mankind

Star Trek — WonderTrev AU (Series)

Star Date 2265. Diana of Themyscira, daughter of Hippolyta, protector of mankind lives to see humans evolve beyond war. Born a goddess more than 4,500 years ago, Diana did her part to rid the Earth of invasion during an age when they were most vulnerable. Now she travels to distant galaxies to live among peoples who are stranger to her than man was the first time she sailed to their shores. Some humble her with advanced understandings of peace. Others cling to war, so she must carry sword and shield.

The gods lead her to an unoccupied planet so alike Themyscira she aches. There, she establishes a society of New Amazons. Women-spirited lifeforms from all corners of the universe make their home there. They elect their queens, they study ancient texts, and they fight in the style of the greatest general the Amazons have ever known. Diana is their reveared goddess of truth. She is beloved, but she is held apart. 

The Federation finds Themyscira by accident. A Klingon warship shoots down a pod ejected from the starship Enterprise. Diana rescues the lone figure inside. When she sees him, a thousand years fall away. Captain Steven Rockwell Trevor returns to her as Captain James Tiberius Kirk. Steve. Jim. Instead of a book of poisons, he has a powerful crystal he must deliver before war sweeps the Federation. The differences mean little.

She knows those blue, blue eyes. Brash, honorable, self-sacrificing — he is her heart made whole again. He calls her home Paradise Planet and approaches its glowing waters with a boyish fascination. On the beach, he remindes her how to sway. Yet, even with a holo as proof, he finds it difficult to believe in reincarnation. He tells her it doesn’t matter if he can’t remember — he believes in her.

With him at her side, she leads his crew and the Amazons into battle. Ares is alive again in the body of a Klingon general. Diana almost loses her love again, but Ares’ stolen lightning hits the crystal first, giving Jim back his life as Steve. Together, they defeat the god of war for a second time. The Amazons invite their enemies to Themyscira, where they reform the war-minded. 

Diana accepts an invitation to board the Enterprise and makes a home for herself in the arms of her captain out among the stars.

Hearing Voices Part II - Roscar
  • Oscar: So you've been surprisingly quiet on this subject.
  • Ozpin: Well... when I knew Miss Rose, she was a bright and promising student of mine, and several scores younger than me. My input on the subject feels...improper.
  • Ozpin: If you're looking for advice on romance more broadly, it is not something that is off-limits for us. We have known many great loves throughout our lifetimes. However...it is complicated.
  • Oscar: Of course it is.
  • Ozpin: Destinies such as ours require full dedication. Shaping the future of mankind is not a part time undertaking. When we make choices, we often have to put what is best for the people ahead of our own wants and needs. This makes it understandably...difficult for the people we love. For the people who love us.
  • Ozpin: We have known many great loves...but those loves come with great hardship. And great loss.
  • Oscar: (dejected) Terrific...
  • Ozpin: Further, regarding Miss Rose, regarding Ruby, her path will not be an easy one either. The silver-eyed warriors were renowned for their fierceness, their courage, and their unmatched skill on the battlefield. But their power comes with a cost. They are the protectors of mankind. They take on challenges far greater than other warriors...sometimes challenges that can be more than even their great power can defeat. The silver-eyed warriors, more than the average Huntsman, are known for their heroic, but very premature deaths.
  • Ozpin: Ruby inherited her silver eyes from her mother, and she died very young. Ruby was only a small child. I hope the same fate doesn't befall Ruby, but that is not in my hands. When Ruby's battle comes, she alone will be the one who can determine the outcome. Regardless, however long or short Ruby's journey is, it will be a difficult one. You both have destinies that require great sacrifice to achieve.
  • Ozpin: So about what you are thinking about starting with her, that is your choice to make. But be warned: with the paths each of you are on, with the challenges each of you will face, there is little likelihood that the two of you will have a happy ending.
  • Oscar: You're just here to bring me sunshine and good news, aren't you?
  • Ozpin: I'm afraid not, no.
  • Oscar: Seriously? Don't you have anything that isn't gloom and doom and sacrifice and destinies? Can't you tell me one thing that is positive?!
  • Ozpin: There is a pastry shop two streets over that makes an excellent cup of cocoa. I highly recommend you stop in.
  • Oscar: *facepalms*

Soul Bond

A Sequel to Soul Mark

Note: I’m kind of in love with the whole Seth x Witch!Reader thing, so forgive me for writing another part lmao.

Warnings: None??

Word Count: 1854

Ever since you and Seth found out that not only were you his imprint, but that he was also your soulmate, you had barely been apart. Seth treated you basically like a queen. Any time you needed literally anything, he was right there to get it for you. Hungry? He’d make snacks. Thirsty? He’d have a water bottle in your hand before you could say “Hocus Pocus”. Cold? Blanket around the two of you as you snuggled into his chest.

It was amazing to say the very least.

Every time you were even in slight discomfort, he was already running through a million ideas of how he could make it better. It was a wolf thing, he had told you. He didn’t want to smother you, but he literally couldn’t help himself. Every time you were close enough, he would wrap an arm or two around you and pull you close. You didn’t mind.

Getting used to Seth was easy. Getting used to the rest of the pack was a bit more of a challenge. There were a lot of them. They were loud and hyper, and apparently, they didn’t know what a shirt was. You understood it was because of phasing and really, they were just trying to save money on torn shirts, but still…

Not that you minded looking at Seth’s abs all that much because damn… You were a lucky, lucky girl.

The pack kind of loved you. I mean, your witchy powers were pretty awesome. A simple matter moving spell looked like The Force, and they were constantly trying to get you to use your “Jedi Mind Tricks”. Not that you really could, but you performed little spells here and there to keep them entertained.

But with the witchy powers came witchy traditions, one of them being a Soul Celebration to mark the discovery of one’s soulmate.

“So who’s all coming to this party?” Seth asked. At the moment, your boyfriend was standing on a ladder, pinning up a big banner that read ‘Two Hearts - One Soul: (Y/N) and Seth’. It was cheesy, sure, but you kind of loved it. After all, the pack had thrown a party for Seth. He was glad the whole imprint/soulmate thing was a two-way street.

“I invited a bunch of my friends from Salem, so they should be flying in soon. And then, of course, the pack in invited and a bunch of my mom’s magic friends, and my grandma and aunts.”

“Sounds like fun.”

“They’re going to love you.” You told him. Seth stepped down from the ladder and stood in front of you, taking both of your hands in his own warm larger ones. He rested his forehead against yours. “Not as much as I love you, but they’re going to love you.”

“What else do we need to do before they get here?”

“Gotta hang up the fairy lights and arrange the table pieces, and then I’ve gotta get changed.”

“You look perfect like this,” he whispered, thumbs stroking your cheeks. You laughed softly, giving his firm chest a little shove.

“And I think your chest looks perfect, but you should probably put a shirt on before my grandma gets here.”

“Point taken.”

Seth was more than content helping you get everything else set up, and then he threw on a nice polo and khakis while you got changed into the lacy black dress your mother had helped you pick out.

Your makeup and hair were done so fast, it was like magic. And it was just in time too. Just as you got back outside to help Seth finish up the decorations as three of your witch friends from Salem flew in, touching down in the yard.

“Woah, when you said flying in-” Seth didn’t think witches actually flew on brooms. Apparently, the two of you still needed to play a little game of witches: fact or fiction?

“Is that him?!” Onyx was the first to lean her broom against the nearest tree and rush over. “Holy- when you said he was a- damn.”

“Girls, meet Seth Clearwater, The best soulmate in the entire world.” You wrapped an arm around his back and he tilted his head down to kiss your temple.

“Show us the mark!” Ivy reached forward, but was held back by Sage. You pulled aside the collar of your dress to show them Seth’s name in black. The girls squealed and jumped around. You were the first of them to actually get a Soul Mark and find the one who was meant for you.

“And so Wolves have soulmates too right?” Sage tucked a curly strand of hair behind an ear and looked up at Seth.

“Imprints.” he corrected with a smile, arm tightening around you. Even now, his heart rushed at the thought. He had an imprint. And he was head over heels in love with her. Onyx took a step forward and cupped a hand around your ear.

“Have you seen him turn yet?” You could tell she was smiling without even looking at her face. You shoved her playfully.

“Maybe.”

“That’s a no,” she laughed. Seth’s cheeks went red, and so did yours. He wasn’t all that eager to show you his party trick just yet. Didn’t want to scare you away after just having found you.

“Girls, you’re here!” Your mother walked out of the house with a few plates of food. “If you want to help me set up the food table, that’d be great.”

“Of course, Mrs. (L/N). We’d be glad to help.” Sage raced over to help your mother with moving the rest of the food from the kitchen to the long table outside. You lit the candles sitting on the tables with the tip of your finger, blowing out the flame when you finished. Seth looked at you with stars in his eyes.

“You are something else, you know that?” He took your hand in his, looking over each of your little magical fingers with care. You winked, earning a love-struck grin.

“I might have heard it once or twice.”

***

“You want some pop with that ice?” Seth asked quietly. Dark had fallen over the yard, which was now illuminated by fairy lights and fireflies, not to mention the countless stars glimmering up in the velvet sky. The moon was a thin little crescent, no more than a sliver of silver light.

You blinked a few times and looked down at the cup in your hand. You had filled it completely with ice, distracted by you weren’t exactly sure what. Maybe it was everything. Your head was buzzing and there were so many people here. Witches, Wolves, humans, even vampires. Jacob Black had shown up with his imprint Renesmee, who was apparently a human-vampire hybrid.

When had your life gotten so weird?

“Sorry, I’m just-”

“Distracted.” he nodded. “I know.” Seth held up his cup and you poured some of the ice into it before he filled each of your cups with pop. After setting down the bottle, his free hand roamed over the surface of your face, searching your eyes. “You can tell me anything, you know.”

“I know…I’m just tired. And nervous. There are a lot of people here, you know?” You curled into his chest, causing him to wrap his arms around you. “A Soul Mark is a big deal with witches. It’s a coming of age and the time when powers really start to come in and get stronger. I’m starting to get these wicked headaches, but I know it’s just growing pains. Kind of.”

“Well, I don’t know how magic feels, but being what I am isn’t always easy. It especially wasn’t easy when it all started. I was the youngest in the pack, and all of these changes were happening to me on top of puberty…Let’s just say it sucked.”

“Well, thankfully, I’ve got the puberty out of the way, huh?” you smirked. He kissed your forehead and rubbed your jaw with his thumb.

“Staying out of trouble, Seth?” Jacob walked over and nudged the younger wolf.

“Trying to,” he nudged Jacob back.

“So this is the infamous (Y/N). Nice to meet you.”

“Likewise.” You shook Jacob’s hand.

“It’s good to see you happy, Seth.”

“It’s good to be happy.”

There was a moment of quiet, and in it, you could hear the crickets chirping in the woods adjacent to the lawn. Your friends were currently dancing with the majority of the Wolfpack over in the open yard-turned-dancefloor. And then, in the quiet, your mother walked over.

“(Y/N), Seth, two minutes until midnight.” she reminded you. You nodded and grabbed Seth’s hand, leading him to the center of the tables. All of the eyes had fallen on you. A large leather book was sitting on a stand. The golden letter on its worn old cover read ‘Liber de Anima Mea’; the Book of the Soul.

“Are you sure you’re okay with this?” You asked. Sure, Seth was already linked to you, but this would seal the bond with unbreakable magic.

“More than okay.” Seth winked. Both of you stood over the book, hands linked. As soon as the clock struck midnight, the front cover of the book flipped open, the pages turning until it was opened to the right one. The candles on either side of it lit on their own. Goosebumps pricked your arms and legs, a chill running up your spine.

There was a voice, a whisper at first, but growing stronger. Swirling golden magic rose out of the center of the book, swirling around you and then swirling around Seth. A butterfly made of light fluttered around before perching on your joined hands. A few seconds later, it flew off towards the moon.

“(Y/N) (L/N), daughter of the Moon and Stars, do you take this Shapeshifter, Seth Clearwater, as the one true mate of your soul?”

“I do.” You looked him in the eye. He smiled and gave your hands a squeeze, one that he returned.

“Seth Clearwater, son of the Shapeshifters and protector of mankind, do you accept the soul bond with the witch, (Y/N) (L/N), hereby promising to be her protector, her guardian, or anything she needs you to be?”

“I do.” That part of the soul bond was easy enough. You were already his imprint. He was already all of those things for you.

“By the power of the sky and the will of the earth, with the strength of the flame and the depth of the sea, may the two of you be bound forevermore in the Magic of the Soul.”

The magic around you intensified, golden ribbons twisting through the night. A ring of light fastened around your wrist and his, and when the magic faded, the bands were still there, etched into your skin like your Soul Mark. The book slammed shut, the candles flickered out, and as the thin streams of smoke rose into the air, you took Seth’s face in your hands and pulled him in for a long-awaited kiss.

List of Norse Gods and Goddesses

NOTE: There are various theories about the origins of the names of some of the minor/less known gods/goddesses of the Norse Mythology. Some names on this list may belong to the god/goddess referred to or may be just another name for another god/goddess.

Due to the many gods and goddesses in Norse Mythology, this list may not be complete!
Some of the minor gods and goddesses have only a few references to their names and not much is known about them.

I hope you can find this list to be helpful in some way!


The gods and goddesses of Norse Mythology are divided into three groups. The Æsir and the Ásynjur clan, the Vanir clan and the other minor gods and goddesses.

The Æsir is the clan of the most powerful dods and goddesses of the Norse Mythology. The goddess are called the Ásynjur. They were thought of as being the powers that hold the cosmos together, the animating personalities of the ‘forces of nature’. Gods of Nature. Gods of war and of justice. They were known for their strength as well as for their wisdom.
Their home is Ásgarðr, where Óðinn, the All Father, and his wife Frigg are the rulers.

The Vanir are masters of sorcery and magic. Gods and goddesses of love and peace. They are also widely recognized for their talent to predict the future.
When the war between the Æsir and the Vanir ended, some of the Vanir, including Njord and his children Freya and Freyr, joined the Æsir in Ásgarðr. Their home is Vanaheim, one of the Nine Worlds held within the branches of the world-tree Yggdrasil. Some suggest that the Vanir may be associated with the Elves (Alfar).

sada-ventrix-divination  asked:

Hi! I was curious about who you have as a deity under the norse pantheon? (If you do) Is it typical to be chosen by a God? Loki has been sending me signals for years that I only just realized a few days ago. Not only him, but Thor as well. I know how to honor Loki, but Thor is tricky and I wonder if you have any tips on how to do it?

Hey, dear! I work with Hel, Frigg, and Thor most often. I wouldn’t know what’s most typical but I’d say it’s definitely common, that’s how it was for me and a few of my friends. I made a post about what I offer to the gods here.

But for Thor specifically there’s a lot you can do, in my opinion.🐐

  • There’s the obvious beer, mead, and meat! He’s a big guy who loves to eat and drink. Honestly, whenever I have a beer I offer it to him first. That being said, I never drink but I have noticed he also takes to a weed offering well. The guys loves to get fucked up. Also, big cookies?
  • You honor the gods by trying to be your best self and constantly trying to better yourself. An important part of worshiping Thor(to me) is trying to be someone who continues down a path of personal and community improvement. He is the protector of mankind and I personally believe he appreciates the effort we put in to help others.
  • A lot of heathens where Mjölnir as a devotional act to Thor, I currently am not comfortable doing that with the current state of American society and Marvel making the matter more problematic. In exchange though I have a cute little goat necklace I wear for him because it’s discreet and cute. (Goats are so fucking cute though.)
  • Having a hammer or goat on your altar is a good way to honor him. The oak tree is sacred to Thor so acorns or bark from the tree would fine. I also usually include rainwater, jade, clear quartz, tigers eye, and/or the color blue on my altar.
  • Honestly though if you can just do your best to help the less fortunate and stand up for people when they need it that’s enough. If you’re uncomfortable volunteering you can donate, if you don’t have the money to donate don’t let racists or assholes in our community get away with trying exclude people. Just be nice, man.

I just watched the latest SPN ep.

It was better than expected after looking through my dash.

I liked the things that Sam said about himself to both Dean and Jack.

I don’t particularly care for the way they are writing Dean. I mean Dean has always lashed out when he’s hurting and most of the time it’s at Sam. I felt like last season there was a good bit of character development with Dean. And with the boys relationship.

I think Dean has lost hope after getting his Mom back and then losing her again.

But Sam lost his mom too and his friend just like Dean did. I would like to see Sam grieve for them also. I think he is so focused on Jack that he is suppressing his feelings which is nothing new.

I didn’t like them bringing Missouri back and then killing her off. That sucks.

I’ve seen certain comments about the show and this is what I think(not that anyone cares).

Supernatural has always played fast and loose with legends and lore and that includes the Bible. I like that they explore the duality of good and evil. That beings, or people, like Sam, that are supposed to be inherently evil can be saved by their own inner strength and desire to overcome their so-called destiny.

In the same vein, angels and god, himself, are not always good. I’ve always thought that the angels were worse than demons because they were supposed to be protectors of mankind and most of them hate humans. I mean you expect demons to be bad.

So I actually like the fact that, while Jack is supposed to be evil, he may have the choice not to be. Lucifer was God’s favorite at one time and it took eons for him to become the twisted being he is now. With Sam, and eventually Dean on his side, I think Jack will choose to do good. Maybe because his father is so evil.

I don’t always agree with the writers but so far I’ve been pleasantly surprised by this season.

And, yes, Bloodlines is still the worst ep ever.

Except for Sam’s hair. The windy city did wondrous things with it.

“For eleven hundred years, I have fought and I have seen the darkness in our galaxy. I have seen the vileness of the alien and the heresy of the mutant. I have witnessed the sin of possession. I have seen all the evil that the galaxy harbours, and I have slain all whose presence defiles the Emperor. I have seen what you will see. I have fought what you must fight, and I have slain what you must slay… so fear not and be proud, for we are the sons of Sanguinius, the protectors of Mankind. Aye, we are indeed the Angels of Death.”

fishboy101416  asked:

Wait your name is Saskia? Where is that from??

It’s a Dutch name!! but from also looking at the wikipedia, it could also be Slavic meaning ‘protector of mankind’ so obvs I’m a rwby character I meannn aha

Yeah my sister is called Tabitha so when I was born my parents just wanted a name to match! I think they read somewhere that the painter Rembrandts wife was called Saskia and they really liked it :D

anonymous asked:

What are somethings things you do to honour the gods daily? (Like something you do every morning or night)

Well, I bind my hair every day, and I blog every day as well as perform my duties for Elaion and Pandora’s Kharis when I am not swamped. But I think you are talking about ritual. This is my routine:

Night time prayers (before bed):

Preparation:

  • Pour wine in my kylix
  • Empty water bowl and fill anew with water previously prepared by mixing tap water with sea water and asking Okeanos’ blessing
  • Empty sacrificial bowl
  • Add ethanol to sacrificial bowl
  • Lay out a match and a hand towel
  • Lay out (dried) herbs or scented wood

Rite:

  • Procession to the shrine
  • Strewing of barley groats on the altar
  • Preparation of khernips 
  • Purification – washing of hands and face, sprinkling the room and altar with fingers
  • Add khernips to wine

“Blessed Okeanos, may your bright waters purify this space, and prepare both me, and it, for the rites that are about to unfold.”

  • Lighting of Hestia’s candle (if not yet burning, mine almost always is), as well as the ethanol to burn sacrifices in
  • Hymn and prayers to Hestia

“Blessed Goddess Hestia, you who tend the holy house of the lord Apollo, the Far-shooter at goodly Pytho, with soft oil dripping ever from your locks, come now into this house, come, having one mind with Zeus the all-wise—draw near, and withal bestow grace upon my song.

Post samaritan where Root got shot but is healing so they are getting a new dog so shaw trains the dog to be with Root all the time esp when Shaw is out for mission

The little puppy is absolutely attached to Root. Sometimes it follows Bear around too, but whenever Root is there, it’s to be expected that it’s on Root’s heels or, like a cat, curled up in her lap. Like Bear, it’s also a Belgian malinois. Root likes petting it because of its soft puppy fur.

              “Makes my training it a little easier,” Shaw says one day, carrying sandwiches into the subway where Root’s made herself at home, “since it never leaves your side.”

              “That’s why you got her for me, right?” Root says, half-serious. “So I can be protected while you’re gone.”

              “The Machine and I both agreed that you’re not ready for strenuous activities.”

              Root’s smile grows. “Is that why the morning sex has been so gentle?”

              Shaw shakes her head, sitting on the bench with a huff. The little puppy comes over to sniff at her shoes and the bags, yipping excitedly. Such a cute little thing won’t be much defense against intruders, but based on her efforts to play tug-of-war with Bear, she’ll be fierce if she needs to.

              “We still have to name her,” Root comments around her sandwich. She hands little pieces of turkey to the puppy and Bear. “Thought you could do the honors.”

              “I’m terrible with names,” Shaw says, but thinks anyway. There are great Greek and Roman names from classic literature, or names from the stories that her father used to read to her. But the one that comes to mind is Alexander, feminine form Alexandra—protector of mankind. “What about Alexandra?”

              “Defender of mankind,” Root says, scratching behind the puppy’s ears. “She’ll chew the bad guy’s legs off while you’re away.”

End notes: Now just imagine little Ally thinking she’s such a big dog yapping at bad guys when really it’s like Simba’s laughable roar in the beginning of  The Lion King
