The signs as beautiful poems


Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.


She dwelt among the untrodden ways
          Beside the springs of Dove;
A Maid whom there were none to praise,
          And very few to love:
A violet by a mossy stone
          Half-hidden from the eye!
—Fair as a star, when only one
          Is shining in the sky.
She lived unknown, and few could know
          When Lucy ceased to be;
But she is in her grave, and, oh,
          The difference to me!


If a person can laugh at himself
for any foolishness, they have done.
That person is a happy person
who can always laugh with the world.
The laughter can be infectious
and then more will laugh along with them.
The more the smiles are raised
happier our lives will become
and safer our world will be. 


The rose is a rose,
And was always a rose.
But the theory now goes
That the apple’s a rose,
And the pear is, and so’s
The plum, I suppose.
The dear only knows
What will next prove a rose.
You, of course, are a rose -
But were always a rose. 


I died for beauty, but was scarce
Adjusted in the tomb,
When one who died for truth was lain
In an adjoining room.

He questioned softly why I failed?
“For beauty,” I replied.
“And I for truth - the two are one;
We brethren are,” he said.

And so, as kinsmen met a-night,
We talked between the rooms,
Until the moss had reached our lips,
And covered up our names. 


I took my Power in my Hand—
And went against the World—
‘Twas not so much as David—had—
But I—was twice as bold—

I aimed by Pebble—but Myself
Was all the one that fell—
Was it Goliath—was too large—
Or was myself—too small? 


If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.


A slumber did my spirit seal;

I had no human fears:

She seemed a thing that could not feel

The touch of earthly years.

No motion has she now, no force;

She neither hears nor sees;

Rolled round in earth’s diurnal course,

With rocks, and stones, and trees.


Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.


'Tis a strange mystery, the power of words!
Life is in them, and death. A word can send
The crimson colour hurrying to the cheek.
Hurrying with many meanings; or can turn
The current cold and deadly to the heart.
Anger and fear are in them; grief and joy
Are on their sound; yet slight, impalpable:–
A word is but a breath of passing air.


Lo! in the painted oriel of the West,
Whose panes the sunken sun incarnadines,
Like a fair lady at her casement, shines
The evening star, the star of love and rest!
And then anon she doth herself divest
Of all her radiant garments, and reclines
Behind the sombre screen of yonder pines,
With slumber and soft dreams of love oppressed.
O my beloved, my sweet Hesperus!
My morning and my evening star of love!
My best and gentlest lady! even thus,
As that fair planet in the sky above,
Dost thou retire unto thy rest at night,
And from thy darkened window fades the light. 


In visions of the dark night
I have dreamed of joy departed-
But a waking dream of life and light
Hath left me broken-hearted.

Ah! what is not a dream by day
To him whose eyes are cast
On things around him with a ray
Turned back upon the past?

That holy dream- that holy dream,
While all the world were chiding,
Hath cheered me as a lovely beam
A lonely spirit guiding.

What though that light, thro’ storm and night,
So trembled from afar-
What could there be more purely bright
In Truth’s day-star?

Thoughts on the rest of the MHA girls, individually?

I’ve already established Tsuyu as my absolute fave, so I‘ll be brief here. But I’ve often had the suspicion that the cutest and most endearing girls are not the flawless ones as you would expect, but the ones with a handful of just slightly imperfect physical traits. I’d go into this theory more, but suffice to say that Tsuyu’s slightly goofy frog face is the perfect expression of that idea, and the fact that she’s a contender for most popular character I think proves or at least supports my theory.

I also just love her personality so much. One couldn’t tell because she seems to have difficulty forming physical expressions on her face, but she’s actually extremely confident, pragmatic, and not above snarking like a boss. When she first told off Bakugo for being an ass, that’s exactly when I fell in love with her.

Ochaco might be my second fave. She’s the personification of sunshine and rainbows and puppies and all that warms the cold cynical corners of my heart. But I’m glad that that’s not the end of her characterization and in Season 2 we’re starting to see her character get rounded out and developed and I love what I see so far.

Also she looks great in a tanktop. She should do that more often. Or maybe I just have a weakness for tank tops.

Momo is generally fits the baddass archetype girl that I’m usually drawn to. She definitely delivers on that that end, while still being relatable and likable. But between her underwhelming hero costume and a Quirk that doesn’t particularly interest me, she doesn’t really grab my interest quite as much as the above two. I really respect her determination though, and I’m eager to see more of her.

Mina ties with Momo in terms of my faves, I think. She’s got a more compelling design in general, but with the less screen time I don’t know enough about her to really get an impression stronger than “Genki-Girl” archetype. She super cute tho. Would hug 10/10.

Kyoka’s Quirk is just too wierd for me to really swallow. The whole USB ear plugs thing sounds like something out of a surreal dream, and that hurts my interest in her as a character. But in spite of that, the rest of her punk-rock design is rad as hell, and her personality manages to remain cool and engaging and unique from the rest. She’s just too cool to not like.

Toru is… kind of a joke right? She’s part of the A-1 class, but she’s never really done anything. And her Invisibility quirk seems more like a mildly pervy joke than anything else (since she can’t wear clothes if she wants to be completely invisible) This also makes her design inherently boring since…she doesn’t have one. At all. Or much personality either, other than being kinda earnest and clueless, but eh.

Mei gets a special mention, despite not being part of the main cast/group. She’s actually up there with my faves Tsuyu and Ochaco, but we’ve seen very little of her. She is cray, but in the best possible way. I love her too, and I will be crushed if we never see more of her.

And as for these girls, Ibara and… [checks notes] Itsuka; we know next to nothing of them, but I love them purely for their designs. I really hope to see more of them!

But honestly yes, with the possible exception of Toru, all of these girls are Best Girl worthy. None of them are just the “Girl” archetype, and though some have elements of it (especially Ochaco), they always round it out in their characters so that it’s merely an aspect of their personality, not the entirety of it.

All the girls feel like unique and real people, even if we haven’t seen their personalities fully developed yet; And that’s part of why I love this show so much.

And Then You

Nicholas Rush/Lacey French, Explicit

Summary: On a forced sabbatical from teaching, Nicholas Rush heads for the tiny town of Storybrooke, Maine, hoping for peace and quiet and the chance to work on his research. What he finds instead is Lacey French. Lacey’s in a dead end job as a waitress with a abusive husband when Rush walks into her life. Over the course of his summer sabbatical the two become friends, and eventually lovers. There’s more to their relationship than either of them want to admit, but Rush still has the specter of his late wife, Gloria, holding him back, and Lacey’s way too good at lying to herself.

Notes:  This is for the lovely @anonymousnerdgirl, who prompted a Rushacey Waitress (the movie) AU. I didn’t get to put in all the things I wanted, but I hope this still suffices. I am the worst Santa ever, in case you didn’t know. I put in some timeline references since most of this story is flashback, but jumps to the present as well. This is only my second time writing Rush, so forgive my horrible characterization. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  Posted in three chapters on AO3, but one big pile here. (11,752 words)


Late August

The duffel bag bounces unceremoniously onto the backseat of the rental car, the door shutting after it with a thud. It seems too loud and sharp for so early on a Sunday morning, and the lack of any passersby or any other sounds save for a few chirping birds and the wind has a strange finality to it.

He glances up at the pink Victorian house, with a small smile. Mal’s family home is definitely not his style, but he’d gotten rather comfortable there in such a short time. Crossing to the mailbox, he opens it and drops the keys inside, then turns back to the car and bends to climb into the driver’s seat.

There is no one to see Nicholas Rush off.

anonymous asked:

Do u know what happened w the supergil cast? I see all these posts of people hating the cast and saying how they fucked up and boycotting the show but I can't find any posts that talk about what happened

That’s a very long answer because it’s been a very long weekend and I want to try to keep this blog mostly about Jane, so I’ll make this as brief as I can make it. If you want more detail, you can go check out @redkrypto or @lenasmixedgf or @chloeniccole I’m sure all of them have plenty of posts about what happened.

The big thing that’s got everybody upset (for the most part) was this Season 2 recap song that the cast sang (mostly Melissa and Jeremy though because they were the only two cast members who were in the musical episode) wherein Supercorp got brought up and Jeremy started pretty aggressively shouting “THEY’RE JUST FRIENDS THEY’LL NEVER GET TOGETHER THEY’RE JUST FRIENDS” over and over for a while. Suffice it to say, it sounded a lot like they were laughing at the Supercorp fandom for even seeing chemistry between Kara and Lena at a moment when it was absolutely not warranted. No one had asked about Kara and Lena, the cast (Jeremy in particular) chose to bring it up themselves just to “debunk” it as he said later to which Melissa told him he was very brave for doing something that they knew would upset the Supercorp shippers.

While everyone in the cast laughed (other than Chris Wood apparently), Katie McGrath made a really impassioned speech about how fans are allowed to interpret whatever they want and can see what they want to see. It’s all things that she has said before about other non-canon lgbt ships in other shows she’s been in, so it feels less like an attempt at damage control that she doesn’t mean and more like she was very uncomfortable by what happened (that she really didn’t participate in and only laughed at in the beginning when it was less aggressively negative) and wanted to say something to rectify it. 

As she was saying this, however, Chris Wood made some sort of dumbass comment along the lines of “sexuality is about everyone else’s perceptions of you” and while he followed it up with “that was sarcastic,” he was interrupting Katie and basically making fun of her for daring to say that the fans are allowed to interpret these characters how they want. Jeremy’s response was that he’s very familiar with people’s perceptions of sexuality because he’s a theater guy. Obviously none of these comments have gone over well with their fans, particularly lgbt ones.

While that was plenty enough to make fans angry, Jeremy’s instagram apology later on in the day added even more fuel to the fire. It was basically a non-apology that essentially told all the angry lgbt fans calling him out for being homophobic in the song (at this point we were unaware of the comments made AFTER the song, so we were focusing on that) that we were in the wrong more than him because he was trying to hurt us and our comments were meant to hurt him or some bullshit. I think he referenced that he’s always been a good ally so why were we calling him homophobic now or something (which, while I know he has a history with his cousin and helping her escape conversion therapy, that doesn’t excuse him doing something homophobic now). Both Chris and Melissa liked his apology, but it garnered even more anger from the fans and an hour later, a second instagram message came out that was much kinder and said something along the lines of “If I could go back and change it I would, but all I can do is learn from this and do better going forward.” While there’s no way to know for sure whether Jeremy himself wrote that second message or not, there was some speculation that it was actually the PR people who wrote it. At the very least, people seem sure that he got yelled at by someone (likely the PR people) for writing an apology that just made people more angry and asked to try a second time.

A fan who had the email address of Melissa Benoist’s publicist decided to write a very polite email about what happened, informing them of why what had happened was so hurtful the night of the incident(s). Today, the publicist responded with what amounts to no more than a “fuck you, you’re in the wrong for calling out the actors’ homophobia” and is apparently getting sued by Melissa and her publicist for defamation of character.

Jeremy has written a few more tweets today saying sorry again and Mehcad Brooks wrote an instagram message that also basically amounted to a “fuck you, you’re in the wrong for being upset about something that we don’t think was homophobic and this is going too far.” 

I think that’s everything, I’m not always completely caught up, but dear Lord, I hope that’s everything. For the most part, people are giving a pass to Katie McGrath, Odette Annable, and David Harewood because both Katie and Odette are more recent additions to the cast and speaking up against your costars in a live interview is a surefire way to get yourself in trouble and potentially fired. Katie obviously spoke up in defense of Supercorp shippers later (twice actually, since a new interview was released today where she actually threw a little shade at the rest of the cast for the song). And all three of them weren’t participating in the song as much, even though all three of them were laughing during the Supercorp bit. All three have looked continuously annoyed with the other cast members all weekend and they’re (so far) the only three members of the cast not to do anything that’s problematic (Mehcad and Floriana defend known sex abuser Casey Affleck, Melissa Benoist has taken some white washed roles, Chris Wood continues to defend his slave-owning character and the narrative that took over Kara’s in Season 2). 

Other things that happened that were annoying but not offensive or hurtful: the panel was about 20 minutes long (which is ridiculously short) and only three fans were allowed to ask questions, Melissa only got asked ONE question in the first interview we saw and most of the questions were aimed at Chris, and in that same interview, Chris kept interrupting every other cast member with really obnoxious dolphin noises.

If you have any questions, you’re more than welcome to ask, but I’ve been mostly just keeping up with other Supergirl blogs, so it may be better to direct your questions there for more details. I hope this helped!

im just going to confess something here: i love when misha or jensen starts a joke and then the other one finishes it, in a way. i don't know if you get me? thanks for reading this tho :)

Oooh no – I get you! And I love it too!

Like when one says something snarky,  so the other plays right along …

Or when they tell that same damn story a million FUCKING times, and the other always has to give a performance just so we all know what they’re talking about …  never realizing that YES, WE ALWAYS KNOW WHAT THE FUCK THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT!

Or when they just forget that other people are around at all …

Or when they take turns telling the same story, finding new ways to tease each other as they go …

Or when they use props to help make a joke …

Or the times that you’re pretty sure they scripted something– just for an easy laugh …

Or when they actually have a script right in front of them,  but they both get the same idea on how to make it funnier …

But most of all,  I love the times when it’s obvious that they know the other so damn well,  that they don’t even have to be making eye contact in order to make us crack up…

So yeah,  Nonny– I totally get you.



Are you not afraid to d a n c e with me?
