So I saw a post the other day about how Shiro would suffocate in Allura’s hair if he were the big spoon (EDIT: the post has been found!). And I agree! Allura would be fast asleep while Shiro keeps getting hair in his mouth and doesn’t know how to escape this mane without waking her up.
You know that last post got me thinking: what is up with the these alleged fans who don’t think Star Wars is funny? Don’t get me wrong: I absolutely am here for the Skywalker Family Drama (because hello I have a pulse) and the Kenobi Sads and the Lore but like…at the end of the day? Star Wars is ridiculous! It’s so delightfully humorous. How do people not see this?! Who are these guys and why don’t they want to actually have fun with any of this nonsense?
Publishing work is intimidating; publishing something that you’ve been working on for months, something with a heavy word count and a lot of people involved, is even scarier. You never want to be torn down for something that you’ve spent so much time on. Fortunately, this fandom is typically very encouraging.
I know how it feels to post a monster fic, and to be so excited for people to read it. It’s exhausting and nerve wrecking but most of all, it feels like relief.
With that being said, @tvshows-addict and @anhcor just released a massive fic called Where Your Heart Is. I chat with some of the people (or rather, person) working behind the scenes to help make this story come to fruition, and I know it’s been labor intensive and a lot of work for everyone involved. When a community has come together to create something this big - a community clearly filled with love and support - you know it’s something special. I haven’t read the fic yet - let’s be real, it’s 155k, unless I’m a robot, I obviously haven’t read it yet - but knowing that this fic has been in the works for months and has had so many people actively taking part in it makes me think it has to be good ;) Congrats to the writers and betas! (Now go take a nap!) xx
Getting a glimpse of what Fifth Harmony looks and sounds like as a four piece on stage last night was very promising. The harmonies, the solo distribution, and the arrangements were already so much better and it was only their first real performance...
The universe is one being. Everything and everyone is interconnected through an invisible web of stories. Whether we are aware of it or not, we are all in a silent conversation. Do no harm. Practise compassion. And do not gossip behind anyone’s back - not even seemingly innocent remark! The words that come out of our mouth do not vanish but are perpetually stored in infinite space, and they will come back to us in due time. One man’s pain will hurt us all. One man’s joy will make everyone smile.
May the blessings of all the buddhas, bodhisattvas, gurus and yidams fill the hearts and minds of all beings throughout space and time in the coming year. Let us pray and act vigorously for peace! Happy New Year!
Today I will open the door of my calmness and let the footsteps of Silence gently enter the temple of all my activities. I will perform all duties serenely, saturated with peace.
Train Yourself Not To Fly Off The Handle
The Divine is always there. It is not that He suddenly comes from some point out in space and draws near to us. He is always with us, but we don’t know it because our minds are not with Him. We allow moods, emotional upheavals, oversensitive feelings, anger, and the misunderstanding that comes from these, to so ruffle and cloud our perception that we remain unaware of His presence.
Train yourself not to “fly off the handle.” The moment you lose control, your contact with the Divine vanishes. Sometimes it is very hard to regain that inner tranquility so that you can again pick up the threads of communion with the Divine.
