still good in this world

As both a story creator and a story consumer, I love bookends and circular themes; that is to say, I love it when a story is set up so that the ending is a parallel to the beginning. This is due to two parts:

1) history is constantly repeating; people live, love, fight, and die. A bookend story helps to reinforce this idea.

2) while history is constantly repeating, people can learn from previous mistakes. A good bookend story takes that idea and makes the ending smarter, better than the beginning was.

Take GoT for example, and more specifically: Jon/Sansa

Can I just make every thing stop? Like Siriusly al the girls in my class are like " the WORLD IS GONNA DIE I DINT WANT TO DIE" and I'm just like I wouldn't die dying tonight

Isn’t that what makes life exciting? That it never stops! 
It’s hard sometimes, sure, and sometimes it makes me wonder what it’s all for, but then I start to think that among all the bad things that are happening, there’s still some good out there in the world, and my thought process is, “one day, i’m going to be that person that makes another one smile and I’m going to be that good in the world.” 

So while sometimes the world goes by a little too fast, it’s so exciting to just be there for the ride y’know?

I've been a fan of Ludic ever since the first chapters! A while ago you said you might do a companion piece from Prompto's POV. I was wondering, are you still going to? If not I'd be interested in tackling it, if you would agree?

Uhh… well, I need to finish Ludic, and then we’ll see where we’re at. I’m not sure if I’ll do any companion pieces, or I might dive into a sequel, we’ll see. Right now I’m not looking past the next 2-3 chapters to finish it off, LOL. 

And I am flattered that you’d want to do that?! That said, I hate to be that person, but I really don’t want anyone touching my AUs. Yeah, it’s all based on fanfic, and it is modern-setting AU, but there’s still been a good deal of plotting & world building that’s gone into my fics, y’know? Especially with Ludic, because I may polish it up and try to make it something original and publish, when it’s done. I’m well aware I can’t stop anyone, cuz I put my stuff out on the internet for free to be seen by all, but I’d prefer if you didn’t~

she had the world || panic! at the disco

My country is celebrating 100 years of independence this year and we are also achieving marriage equality on the 1st of March. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our achievements as a nation than celebrating equality and human rights. Congratulations, Finland, may there be many more victories such as this and may your freedom last a thousand years!

(yes, the Finnish flag appears backwards because she’s waving it around)

This is coming out of left field unless you follow my twitter, but here are my men’s figure skating favs!! (in no particular order) I can’t wait to see these three at Worlds!! 😭

Okay so

I am a musician with the Canadian armed forces, and I’ve been on contract with the Ceremonial Guard all summer. It’s a pretty cool job, playing on parliament hill, but it can be a little stressful for those of us who have family and pets at home that we haven’t seen in a while.

We have a seamstress who makes sure all of our uniforms are tailored to fit us, and she does an incredible amount of work to make us look great all summer

One day she brought a kitten to work. She had found him abandoned on the side of the road and brought him in the hopes that someone would adopt him and take him home with them at the end of their contract

We dubbed him the CG Mascot and would drop in to visit him all the time. It’s great stress relief!

Well one day we show up to see him and the seamstress has made him a little ceremonial outfit to match the rest of us. So without further ado, please enjoy this ceremonial kitten

One of the musicians has adopted him and named him Artemis. 

There are still good, sweet people in the world, and there will always be kittens. 

  • What i say: I love dadvid it's so cute lol
  • What i mean: In the season 1 finale we learned why Camp Campbell means so much to David and why he works so hard to keep up his positive attitude. This was important for Max's development, as he realized that David isn't as naive as he seems, and started to see that there are still some good things in the world and people worth trusting. The season 2 finale, however, focused a lot more on developing David as a character + his relationship with Max. When David found out about Max's parents, put aside his own morals and feelings in order to help Max. He took charge of the situation as a responsible adult guardian and prioritized Max's safety over the state of the camp. He immediately rushed out to put Max in a safe and open environment, apologized sincerely to him, and made sure to let him know that his feelings were valid and understandable. DAVID 👏 IS 👏 THE 👏 PARENT 👏 THAT 👏 MAX 👏 NEEDS 👏 i'm gonna cry
Two Sides to Every INTJ:

INTJ: why are humans such idiots? All these idiots, running into walls and screaming and gossiping behind each other’s backs. Teenagers suck. Why are we all so horrible. This is why everyone hates me, I am evil.

also INTJ: KITTY FRIEND COME PLAY WITH ME I LOVE YOU

They’re bros.

Most of the things I know about Turalyon are from the books (Tides of Darkness and Beyond the Dark Portal) and I just loved his friendship with Khadgar. That’s too perfect to see them smile and laugh. They were still so young. And now they’re reunited !! 💛
