Keep watching. Keep blogging. And please, don’t forget to tag your spoilers.

i cannot get over the fact that will’s first instinct when a girl asks him to dance is to look up at mike while stuttering out “um, i don’t…”

and just…the way he quickly looks up at mike, eyes kind of darting away nervously when mike turns his way…

he has the biggest most obvious crush and it’s killing me bitch. killing me.

So i decided to take a break today and go out with my friend (@querencila) and she brought me to this cafe that sold Kpop, Jpop, and anime stuff and guess what I found ??!?!

The cafe’s called Red Monster Cafe and if you live in the Philippines go and check it out! It’s on the infamous Maginhawa Street in Quezon City too!!

 The Stranger

The Stranger is one of the seven aspects of a single deity. He represents death and the unknown and leads the dead to the underworld. Whilst the Stranger is usually referred and described as male, he is neither male or female. His face is always cloaked and hidden and many believe it is due to him having animalistic features.

Despite, the other aspects of the Seven all being revered and popular, he rarely attracts favour. Most worshippers of the Faith shun him but he has been known to attract the attention of outcasts, some even seeing the Stranger as a kindred spirit. 

Due to his association with death, he has been included in a public shrine of gods and idols of the dead, in the House of Black and White.

At six-thirty, with no will left for the rest of the people that crowded in her house, the only daughter left the wake without a single word. Wondered straight out off of the porch with no real thought at all, not even missed by anyone in particular.
