“Your generation would probably ‘livetweet’ the apocalypse” you say, and you laugh
You mean it as an insult, and I understand,
Or you don’t
because the word lies awkwardly on you tongue, stumbles as it leaves your lips, air quotes visible
You meant it as an insult, so you don’t understand, when I look into your eyes and say “Yes”
Because we would.
It would be our duty, as citizens on this earth
to document it’s end the best way we know
and if that means a second by second update
of the world going up in flames, or down in rain, or crushed under the feet of invading monsters
so be it.
It would mean a second by second update of
“I love you”
“I’m scared”
“Are you all right?”
“Stay close”
“Be brave”
It would mean a second by second update of the humanity’s connection with one another,
Proof of empathy, love, and friendship between people who may have never met in the flesh.
So don’t throw the word 'Livetweet’ at me like a dagger, meant to tear at my 'teenage superiority’
Because if the citizens of Pompeii, before they were consumed by fire,
had a chance to tell their friends and family throughout Rome
“I love you”
“I’m scared”
“Don’t forget me”
Don’t you think they’d have taken the chance?

Here's a little song for all high school and college students

If you’re exhausted and you know it take a nap.
If you’re sick and tired of projects take a nap.
If you’re struggling through exam week and an existential crisis,
Just fuck it all and go and take a nap.

To the friend who moved away
It happened so long ago that I barely remember you
but I know that we were close, and that you were one of the first
to make friends with the strange girl who joined Kindergarten halfway through the year

To my biggest competitor
We’ve been friends for ages but
it never stops us from trying to out do each other
and I hope it never will

To the friend who gives the best hugs
I don’t think you realized
How much I needed them
and how much better you made my day

To the friend who turned out not to be my friend
Fuck you
It took me too long to see what was wrong
And it’s still hard for me to trust people

To one of my best friends
We barely ever talk anymore
and it’s really neither of our faults
but when we do, it’s like we never stopped, and that’s awesome

To the friend I talk to at 3 AM
You vent to me about your girlfriend and I whine about my existential crises
We go through hell trying to Skype, but our talks make my day
I wish we could do it more often

To the friend I message out of the blue with no warning
Dude, you’re the best
You take our random chats in stride
and it’s literally never awkward

To the friends I left behind
I just want to say
I miss you guys
Like a lot

To the friends who Skyped me first,
You took the time to get together in a coffee shop off campus
just to remind me that I’m still remembered
It was like I’d never left

To my friend who I meet so rarely
You’re really great, you know?
The fact that we even talk to each other boils down to dumb luck
but the fact that we talk so often makes me happy

To the friends I never meet at all
The fact that you guys care about me
even when you barely know me
means more to me than you’ll ever know

To all the friends I have right now
Thank you
The fact that you think I’m worth hanging around
Makes my days a little better

—  To all the friends I’ve ever had

I think one of my favorite Hetalia episodes is the Hetalia of the dead ones. And this is going to sound dumb, but it’s mainly because of the fact that these dorks are all off duty and are dressed so casually and having a movie marathon like a bunch of teenagers. What I find interesting are the clothes these guys wear, because they’re liteally just hanging out, and the clothes they decide to wear tells us a lot about the characters I guess.

Semi Formal

I find the fact that America is wearing a formal shirt and tie a little odd, but maybe it’s because he’s the host country IDK. But Japan , Germany, and Canada are countries that are a lot less goofy, I guess than the rest, so it just seems fitting. Finland also seems a bid odd, but I think it’s because he tries to put his best foot forward when interacting with the others.I can’t say much about New Zeland because this is his first Anime appearance. 

Casual

Italy’s is the most casual, and I guess it’s because he’s so laid back as a country. England’s is vastly different than his uniform, edgier, I guess, which is interesting since he tries to present himself as the perfect gentleman. France of course manages to be both stylish and casual, which fits pretty well, because he’s one of the more suave countries.

Pretty Much the Same

Spain, China, and Russia are all wearing outfits that are really similar to what they usually wear. China is wearing red instead of green, Spain’s tie/ribbon thing is blue instead of red, and Russia is wearing a green jacket instead of his usual overcoat. What I get from this is that these guys’ characteristics remain static no matter the situation.

tl;dr- It’s almost 2 am, I can’t sleep, and I’m really interested in what clothing can tell you about characters. Also, this may be incorporated into a fic at some point.

Six Magnus Bane Quotes That Should Be on T-Shirts

“There’s no need to clarify my finger snap, the implication was clear in the snap itself.“

"I think of myself as a freewheeling bisexual”

“WHO CALLS UPON THE HIGH WARLOCK?” 

“If I wanted to lie on a couch and complain to someone about my parents, I’d hire a psychiatrist.”

“Ma'am,I must counsel you not to exit the carriage while a demon-slaying is in progress.“

“Go to faeries for gossip about VAMPIRES, to werewolves for gossip about faeries, and do not gossip about werewolves, because they try to bite your face off: that was Magnus’s motto.” 

“And the Angel descended from on high and gave his chosen ones fantastic abs”

Don’t you think its weird how dragons are always stealing princesses in stories? And why princesses, I mean they rarely eat them. They just sort of hold them hostage. Do they know they’d get a higher ransom for a princess than like a bakers daughter? And why only girls? Why don’t princes get kidnapped? They’re easier targets, always galavanting alone through the woods. Think about it. Princesses are always locked in towers or told never to leave the castle. The dudes are just there
