sacrfices

CONFESSION: 

No offense, but I honestly hate games where if the protagonist dies, then that’s the end of the game. I’m glad that the Dark Ritual existed because you get to carry on the rest of the game. People may see it as a cop out, but come on…. If you level up a character and get some sweet gear for them, then you start to get attached.

I remember reading a tumblr post months ago comparing Erwin Smith to Reinhard Heydrich, the notorious Nazi Chief of Police and one of the main architects of the Holocaust, and I felt this was such a complete disservice to Erwin. The blond hair aside (one of Heydrich’s nicknames was The Blond Beast), these two men have absolutely nothing in common.

Now, it is common knowledge that Isayama patterned Erwin after Erwin Rommel, also known as the Desert Fox, the legendary Nazi commander who ultimately turned against Adolf Hitler, but there is another Nazi officer whom I feel Erwin has a lot in common.

I present to you Count Claus Philipp Maria Justinian von Stauffenberg, pictured above (and yes, Tom Cruise played him in the film, Valkyrie). The physical similarities are striking to say the least. Moreover, consider the other factors. Count von Stauffenberg was:

- very well educated and cultivated

- not perfect in his initial views about Adolf Hitler but with a strong moral compass, which meant he never turned a blind eye to all the Nazi atrocities when so many of his countrymen did

- decorated for bravery after serving on the same front as Erwin Rommel, and suffered severe injuries resulting in the loss of his left eye, his right hand, and two fingers on his left hand in the course of duty

- a rising army Nazi officer, nevertheless, he expressed outrage and shock at the ill treatment and killing of Jews by Nazi Germany

- with his resolve, organisational abilities, and radical approach, he put an end to inactivity caused by doubts and became the driving force in the planning and carrying out of Operation Vallkyrie, the failed 1944 assassination plot against Adolf Hitler

- aware that he was committing treason, he told his junior officer quite openly, as early as 1943,  “ich betreibe mit allen mir zur Verfügung stehenden Mitteln den Hochverrat…” (“I am committing high treason with all means at my disposal….”)

- justified his actions by citing his right under natural law (“Naturrecht”) to defend millions of people’s lives from the criminal aggressions of Hitler

- knew increasingly that the plot would fail, but carried on as this would be the only way to prove to the world that the Hitler regime and Germany were not one and the same and that not all Germans supported the regime

- was caught after incurring a gunshot wound to the shoulder and executed at the age of 36 for his role in the failed July plot. His brother Berthold was also tried and executed by slow strangulation, reportedly by means of piano wires

- a hero and a LEGEND, just like Erwin Smith. Their sacrfices are not in vain. Their stories will be heard long after they have passed on.

“when people talk about this day, they call it different things. but for this moment, when every living thing across all plains of reality simultaneously received the Voidfish’s gift, for this moment, and for the moments that followed-moments of heroism and sacrfice, and luck- these moments are why WE call this day:

The Day of Story and Song”

Rhysand

You got to have a big heart to sacrifice your love for someone just for them to be happy, You have to be a strong person to suffer from abuse to let the ones you love live, to keep your kingdom a secret from your abuser and take all of it with the thought of them not knowing of your sacrifices.

You have to care so much to have a heart willing to do that for you kingdom, your friends, your family. You have to be to selfless to think about nothing but others.   

Reading ACOMAF I couldn’t help be at awe with the kind of person Rhysand is to go through all those things and not worry for himself but his kingdom, his friends. Rhysand went through so much and I don’t think once in the book did he complain and also him being in love with Feyre but he didn’t once try to stop the love she had for Tamlin in the first book by telling her that she was his mate or in ACOMAF because he wanted her to be happy, he would sacrifice his love for her to have hers even if he wasn’t happy.

MY HEART HURTS!!

CLEXA MAD MAX AU THO

#oh my god#clarke is max#definitely#and lexa practically oozes furiosa#what with all the damaged hope and willingness to sacrfice everything for others#beautiful (via timballisto)

So I saw this post a while ago and thought it’d be a perfect way for me to finally get back to making arts again. I wasn’t wrong, although this took a lot of time and effort, I’m kinda proud of the finished piece. So here’s my first Clexa AU art and hopefully more to come. I’ve always seen Lexa in Furiosa and Clarke in Max when I was watching it (partly bc I’m such a trash and all I could think about is Clexa all day everyday) so I thought a Clexa Mad Max AU would be so interesting to see. Glad that I’m not alone in this idea. Mad Max: Fury Road is a brilliant film, I hope you all have seen it :) all women should to support it!

Also I debated whether to post this using my Lexa side blog but eventually decided against it since sideblogs stupidly have very limited features. But most Clexa stuff and reblogs go there so if you’re interested and looking to follow more Clexa people, my side blog is very active lol, you can follow it here: hailhedaleksa.tumblr.com see you there!

tagging k8video bc I promised to tag you once I finished something :P

anonymous asked:

Do you have any headcanons on Keith being an aware Galran Soldier, but still against Zarkon? ;w;

Hey anon! Sorry it took me so long to respond! I’ve been insanely busy!

So, um, I’m hoping I interpreted this correctly. I assume this meant you wanted head canons for Keith being a Galra Soldier and against Zarkon? Like he’s loyal, but he’s against it? (I wasn’t sure what ‘aware soldier’ meant)

Cause I have ideas now Anon

-Keith was born into a soldier family so it was expected when he grew up to become a military figure for the Galran Empire

-He was started at a young age, so it was naturally taught to him at a young age to blindly follow the Galran Empire and it’s decisions

-However, because Keith was only half Galran he was often discriminated against and looked down upon by older Galras. But since Keith was so young, he didn’t really understand that, he just thought all the Galran Empire was vicious and narcissistic. 

-As he got older though, he started to get more of a clue when he began to understand that a lot of their hatred was aimed towards him, but he didn’t understand why until his father explained it to him. 

-This is when Keith starts to question the Galran Empire, and upon talking to others, he realizes that this discrimination against half-breeds only started when Zarkon took over the Empire. 

-It all comes to a head when Keith is ordered to guard the Champion before a big fight in the arena when some other soldiers sneer some nasty comments in his direction, and Shiro hears it. 

-Shiro knows he’s not really supposed to talk to the Galran’s but Keith is obviously different and he’s seen him around before. Shiro knows he’s actually an excellent soldier and has seen him training relentlessly to prove himself. So Shiro finally speaks up. 

-”You’re half-human?”

-”It’s none of your business, Champion,” (Obviously said in spite)

-”It is to me if your human, not to mention how can you stand your own kind hating you when you’re obviously better than them.”

-Those words really get to Keith, and he actually starts to take notice of Shiro because he’s right

-Keith becomes a traitor by releasing Shiro and helping him escape, teaching him all about the guards shifts and Galran soldier techniques. 

-When Shiro escapes and becomes the black paladin, the first thing he does is tell the others he has he perfect red lion pilot, but the others have no trust in Galrans, even if Keith is only half. 

-So Shiro starts to communicate with Keith, and Keith serves as a spy for the Galran Empire, helping the Paladins search for the red lion. 

-Except Keith gets caught by Haggar, and Shiro begs the other paladins to go with him to save Keith.

-In the end, the paladins do escape with the lion, but at one point when they thought they weren’t going to make it, Keith tried to sacrfice himself to help the others escape and fight Zarkon’s empire, but it’s Pidge that goes back to save him because they realize Shiro is right. He is the red paladin.

So I got totally carried away at the end and had to shorten up the ending but I was all for this head cannon. THANK YOU ANON, just another to add to the LIST

Losing weight isn’t just about the looks, it’s how you feel internally. When I lost weight, I was obviously loving the way I was looking, but I was loving the fact that I was loving myself more. I’m not saying that you should only love yourself if you’re making yourself look better, but you love yourself more because you’re taking care of yourself. You see yourself gettting up every morning to do something good for your body and that honestly makes you become closer to yourself.
When I lost the weight, I had a better relationship with myself. Because I actually was showing myself that I cared… think of it this way… when you’re boyfriend/girlfriend shows you how much they care… you fall more and more in love with them, and appreciate them and you want to spend more time with them… well guess what? That goes the same way for yourself. If your partner neglects you, doesn’t treat you very well… you resent them. It’s all the same with yourself!

It’s honestly imprtant for me to run a blog that doesn’t just promote weightloss, I want to promote self love and happiness.. cause in the long run looks fade and it’s important that as a generation we dont depend on looks to make us happy. The younger you learn this, the happier you’ll be!

 I want people to feel the love I have gained for myself for themselves, I never knew how important it was until I started to treat myself better, it was like a rude awakening. When I was overweight and when I didn’t care for my body or for myself for that matter it was all I had ever known… that was that and I didn’t feel like there was much more to love about myself, I was content with what was, even though that meant I wasn’t happy… I lost control over myself and I was in so much denial that I would sacrfice my own happiness if that meant not coming to terms with how badly I was treating my body.

I could honestly go on about this subject because I have learned so much and I could just talk about it all day, but this is me putting my story online to help others realize that you never lost control of yourself, you still have control and once you realize that you can become a happier, healthier version of yourself you take action and take all that control back and use it.

 My advice on my blog isn’t coming from a Nutritionist to a person.
It’s not coming from a personal trainer to a person.
It’s coming from a person who went through it first hand with no help from anything to a person.

I struggle with how losing weight has become something so commercial. Products are being sold, there are these teas you see everywhere telling you you can be happy and healthy and have the perfect body if you drink it… it’s all bull shit. You don’t need a easy way, you just need you to want to treat your body well. Worokout and eat healthy, yummy foods, be good to yourself, be positive, surround yourself with awesome people and do things you love. THAT’S IT!!! You don’t need body shapers, teas, pills, surgery, YOU can do it on your own and when you do it on your own it’s more rewarding.

I am here for every single one of you, and if you ever feel discouraged never hesitiate to contact me, I answer to everyone and take the time you deserve to give the best advice I could possibly give… we’re in this together, lets get you happy and healthy!
