tendency to rush

One thing I really like about BNHA is the constant acknowledgement of the fact that the shonen manga “I can do anything if I just push myself hard enough and refuse to ever rest or back down” mindset is incredibly self destructive.

Like. All Might is falling apart, physically. Midoriya, at just 15, has destroyed his body so many times that he risks paralysis every time he channels his power through his arms. Iida has severe nerve damage in one hand. And literally no one who cares about them is pretending that this is an acceptable way to be. Even the resident magic cure-all, Recovery Girl, can’t do enough to keep up with the damage they put themselves through, and in Midoriya’s case has threatened to stop healing him so as not to enable his self-destructive tendencies.

Plus, a lot of their character development revolves around learning NOT to be like that. Iida spends several arcs after his fight with Stain trying to atone for the trouble his recklessnes caused and trying to prevent Midoriya from getting into the same type of trouble. All Might has to learn to live as a civilian after he gives his power to Midoriya and then CONTINUES to push his body so far that he pretty much breaks. Midoriya develops a new fighting style, reevaulates his tendency to rush in, and learns to ask for help from the Support department in order to keep from destroying himself in the same way.

It’s honestly refreshing; I was a little sick of the Bleach-style “the hero can loose twice his weight in blood and be totally fine an episode later” type of storytelling.

The Signs as Witches

Aries: leader, brazen, creative, original, youthful, passionate - An Arian witch is very similar to their element, Fire: they are quick, driven and uncontrollable. They are leaders and often bring together witches to take the place of their leader. Arians initiate, they create, they are the ember. Creation is their art. The art of manifestation comes naturally to them. But, like Fire, so does destruction. They have the tendency to rush and use brute force rather than finesse in their spells. Tangible spells are more comfortable to them.

Taurus: faithful, steady, earth, healing, growth, natural, balanced - Taurean witches are strong and independent. They keep very detailed records and notes in their Book of Spells. They work with the earth and plants, taking advantage of the nature surrounding them. They know what plants are safe to eat and how to use them not only in magic but in medicine. They make potions and tinctures, this is their art. They speak with the spirits of the forest; the nymphs and fae are their guides. Their craft is highly physical, much like the other Earth Signs.

Gemini: bold, adaptable, fringe, logical, united, chaotic, innovative - Gemini witches work in covens or, at the very least, find partners to work with. Despite this, they march to the beat of their own drum. They make their own spells and have books upon books full of them. Sigils decorate their bodies, from head to toe. Their craft is focused on verbal incantations and movement. Meditation and astral projection are employed regularly and thus mastered by these witches.

How can i improve khushoo in salah?

There are many ways to improve one’s kushoo and this is partly attained throughout a long process. Here are some points I myself have found to be very effective and the more you get into the routine of this the easier it will be.

1. Prepare yourself before salaah meaning do your wudhu with caution, clean the prayer room, wear beautiful prayer clothes since this is something the prophet salallahu alayhi wassalaam prescribed. Bring that kind of awareness back to you that you re going to stand before Allah as if it is your last prayers. Many people fail to internalise sometimes that salaat is like a very important meeting with Allah.

2. Preparing one’s self for prayer can also mean motivating one’s self before or calming down. Like, take as much as you want before the prayer to maybe reflect on the Qur'an. Sit onto your prayer mat and go through the meaning of the surahs you want to recite. Or simply sit there to collect yourself.

3. Salaah becomes more important the more you revolve your day around Islam and its ibadah. I know, this is not always possible because some of us are not always home but at school and work. But it can mean simple things. Reciting a few pages of the Quran in the morning and evening, doing your adhkar when you wake up or before you go to sleep. Listening to Quran when you go somewhere. All these things can help you to bring back that ‘islamic’ feelings back to you.

4. Other than that you can change something about the way you used pray. What I mean with this is that one must maybe start to to lengthen their prayers and instead of just praying 4 fardh rakaat without dhikr afterwards, add the recommended sunnah prayers to it.

The prophet salallahu alayhi wassalaam said:

Allah will build a house in Heaven for whoever is diligent in observing 12 Sunnah Rak'aat (as follows): 4 Rak'aat before and 2 after the Dhuhr (Midday) Prayer, 2 after the Maghrib (Sunset Prayer), 2 after the ‘Ishaa’ (Evening) Prayer and 2 before the Fajr (Dawn) Prayer.“ Hadith sahih narrated by at-Tirmidhi No. 379 and by others. Hadith No. 6183 in Sahih al-Jaami’.

I think this is very effective for those among us who have the tendency to rush through salaah. It will cause you to have more discipline, and increase your concentration.

4. Learn new surahs with meaning by heart. It can be either a surah that you really like and that makes you feel very emotional, or you can memorize the recommend 30 juzz, the last 20? pages of the Qur'an and strengthen your memory by constantly reciting in in salaah.
I personally think that the longer one’s are very helpful because again you don’t have the option to rush through your prayer.

5. A small thing I also wanted to mention is music. Music is so toxic for salaah, there were so many times I would hear some random music before and it would exactly play inside my head when I would start salaah.

That’s all that I had found to be effective in a way. For the ones who know more, can add their tips to it. Maybe you should also look into the book 'inner dimensions of prayer’.

Hogwarts Houses as Countries (rewrite)

Many people disliked the previous version of this post. I was going to leave that up, and rewrite it myself when I had gotten through requests, but I was not content with it, and didn’t want a post you guys disliked so intensely to be a permanent fixture on the blog (plus people kept bringing it back and I didn’t want to see any more angry comments. I’m sorry, I just can’t deal with it right now). So, version 2 for you guys.

Note- I have terrible geographic knowledge (until this year I had no idea where anything in Europe is, which sounds like an exaggeration, but isn’t), so if anyone has any alternate suggestions, feel free to comment them.

Gryffindor: The United States- patriotic and enthusiastic, with a history of rebellion. Historically, they have a tendency to rush in to save others, even if it’s not what would be most helpful.

Slytherin: Ireland- a very old and cultured country, with great value for tradition. Historically, some have been quite conservative and nationalistic, but many people see those views as outdated and have little regard for them.

Ravenclaw: China- Historically, they have been pioneers in many areas, inventing fireworks, paper, the printing press, and much more.  Many individuals work to overcome old, outdated views even if they are deeply ingrained.

Hufflepuff: Canada- Interaction is based on mutual respect, which can lead to others seeing them as soft, which is untrue. While injustices have definitely been committed in the past, they work to recognize their mistakes and repair them.


I didn’t have internet for a while, but I did draw a fair amount! Here’s a warmup I did before working on sweet elite stuff ( i can’t work too much on the current sweet elite stuff, as it’s really detail heavy and I have a tendency to rush that shit) in honor of the new eldarya ep and ep 7 finally coming out on english servers.

I will say this tho, I have never understood why mermaids are depicted with mammary glands (ie boobs) so I draw mermaids without them. That being said, I quite like the new eldarya mermaid and the skin we get in ep 7

Characteristics of post traumatic stress disorder of abandonment

This list is meant to be descriptive, rather than exhaustive of the many issues related to the abandonment syndrome.  

  1. An intense fear of abandonment that interferes in forming primary relationships in adulthood.
  2. Intrusive insecurity that interferes in your social life and goal achievement.
  3. Tendency toward self defeating behavior patterns that sabotage your love life, goals, or career.
  4. A tendency to repeatedly subject yourself to people or experiences that lead to another loss and another trauma.
  5. Intrusive reawakening of old losses; echoes of old feelings of vulnerability and fear which interfere in current experience.
  6. Heightened memories of traumatic separations and other events.
  7. Conversely, partial or complete memory blocks of childhood traumas.
  8. Feelings of emotional detachment, i.e. feeling numb to past losses.
  9. Conversely, difficulty letting go of the painful feelings of old rejections and losses.
  10. Episodes of self-neglectful or self destructive behavior.

  12. Difficulty working through the ordinary levels of conflict and disappointment within adult relationships.
  13. Extreme sensitivity to perceived rejections, exclusions or criticisms.
  14. Emotional pendulum swing between fear of engulfment and fear of abandonment; you alternate between ‘feeling the walls close in’ if someone gets too close and feeling on a precipice of abandonment if you are not sure of the person.
  15. Difficulty feeling the affection and other physical comforts offered by a willing partner.
  16. Tendency to ‘get turned off’ and ‘lose the connection’ by involuntarily shutting down romantically and/or sexually on a willing partner.

  18. Tendency to have emotional hangovers ‘the morning after’ someone has triggered your abandonment feelings.
  19. Difficulty naming your feelings or sorting through an emotional fog.
  20. Abandophobism – a tendency to avoid close relationships altogether to avoid risk of abandonment.
  21. Conversely, a tendency to rush into relationships and clamp on too quickly.
  22. Difficulty letting go because you have attached with emotional epoxy, even when you know your partner is no longer able to fulfill your needs.
  23. An excessive need for control, whether it’s about the need to control others’ behavior and thoughts, or about being excessively self-controlled; a need to have everything perfect and done your way.
  24. Conversely, a tendency to create chaos by avoiding responsibility, procrastinating, giving up control to others, and feeling out of control.
  25. Tendency to have unrealistic expectations and heightened reactivity toward others such that it creates conflict and burns bridges to your social connections.
  26. People-pleasing – excessive need for acceptance or approval.
  27. Co-dependency issues in which you give too much of yourself to others and feel you don’t get enough back.
  28. Tendency to act impulsively without being able to put the brakes on, even when you are aware of the negative consequences.
  29. Tendency toward unpredictable outbursts of anger.
  30. Conversely, tendency to under-react to anger out of fear of breaking the connection and your extreme aversion to ‘not being liked’.
Tano and Kenobi: A New Assignment

Previously on Tano and Kenobi…

After a tense duel between Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano for the right to train Senior Initiate Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka Tano emerges victorious. After their apprenticeship is approved by the Jedi Council, the two take part in the ancient Jedi ceremony that binds a Master and a Padawan Learner together in the guiding light of the Force.

We rejoin our heroes, two years into their partnership, Obi-Wan determined to become the best Padawan Learner in the Order and Ahsoka determined to prevent the cruel future that threatens to destroy the galaxy once more…

First | Previous | Next | AO3

“When you are ready, please begin, Padawan Kenobi.”

The Northern Solar training room was filled with the brilliant light of midday sun filtered through the high, arched stained glass windows that looked out onto Coruscant and the speeder bay three levels below. A group of padawans, none older than fifteen standard years, were assembled in the far left corner of the room, milling about as they each waited their turn to tackle the complicated obstacle course set up by Master Ki-Adi-Mundi. Three padawans had already made their way through the course with decent times and only a few falls and one face plant but that had been because Quinlan Vos had been showing off again.

Obi-Wan Kenobi, Padawan Learner to temporally displaced Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano, was next in line and he had every intention of blasting through the obstacle course with a perfect score and the fastest time of the day. He shot a glance over at his master, who was sitting on the benches that lined the side of the room, her legs crossed and her posture relaxed and confident. She gave him a bright smile and two thumbs up as pride and faith flowed across their training bond.

You’ve got this, Obi-Wan. I know you do.

Obi-Wan took a deep, full-body breath, practically levitating up onto his toes with excitement and nerves. He exhaled and relaxed down into a starter’s crouch, waiting for the Force to sing.

Ki-Adi-Mundi watched the boy with an arched brow but said nothing, trusting Kenobi to know when the time was right.

The Force swirled and let out a note of cheerful harmony and Obi-Wan was off like a shot, his gait smooth and even as he sprinted up an incline and into the obstacle course, adrenaline flowing through him as he vaulted both legs over a low obstacle and moved on to a complicated piece of machinery that was supposed to swing him over a chasm that could have played host to a river, a congested skyway or vein of red hot lava on a volcanic planet somewhere.

Ahsoka watched Obi-Wan breeze through the first two obstacles, cheering him on from the sidelines. There were a few other masters there, observing their own padawans and gossiping about the latest rumors floating around the temple. Apparently Qui-Gon Jinn had managed to improvise his way to a diplomatic solution on a Mid-Rim planet that had been plagued by infighting between powerful dynastic houses. He would be heading back to the Temple after he officiated a few royal weddings and was made a minor deity in the local state religion.

Ahsoka shook her head, her lips quirked. It seemed the Old Glacier was up to his usual antics and she was glad Obi-Wan hadn’t been forced to tag along, especially given his tendencies to rush blindly ahead into danger in his drive to help others and bring peace to the Galaxy. Knowing Obi-Wan, he would have gotten himself betrothed on accident and Qui-Gon would have made things even worse trying to extricate the boy from the unwanted union.

The combination of Jinn and Kenobi might have worked before but Ahsoka was confident that she and Obi-Wan were a much better team this time around. Obi-Wan was already more confident and less critical than when she met him and nearly two years into their pairing as Jedi Master and Padawan Learner their time together had brought a new kind of stability to them both.  Ahsoka’s nightmares of Vader, the Empire, and her lost friends were fewer and farther between and Obi-Wan’s outbursts of righteous anger and destructive self-criticism were slowly coming under control. No one in the Temple could really say they were the model of a perfect master-padawan pair but they were a fiercely devoted team working together to become better than what they were.

To be ready for the darkness when it rose up and threatened the peace of the galaxy yet again.

A/N: Surprise! Welcome to my new series! Here is my take on something I’ve actually been meaning to try for a while. As always, please enjoy <3 - Admin Y

Many say that life is measured by one’s memories.

A baby’s first step – pride.

The child’s first birthday – joy.

A first failure – disappointment.

The second that follows – despair.

A hesitance before a kiss – fear.

Its passion – love.

Each individual has their own specific set of memories and the multitude of emotions that are attached with it. If memories held no meaning, they would simply be moving pictures within the mind. Despite so, memories are what are treasured above everything else.

You would do anything to preserve the memory of something – someone.

That is, however, a romanticized way of thinking of life.

From the time you are born to the time that you die, it is all a large countdown timer from the first breath to the last. Everything in between – those memories you make – they do not mean a single thing; you are unable to take them with you.

The moment you cease, so do they.

So to me, life is not measured by memories. They are measured by seconds.

And these are the last ten seconds of my life.

11, prinxiety?

11. Who can’t sleep without the other?

I feel like they both lowkey can’t sleep without the other, but Virgil is definitely the one who 100% cannot sleep without Roman. It’s hell when Roman goes off on a quest because Virgil will try to wait up for him in the common room, but he always ends up falling asleep and he always ends up having a nightmare. Roman has made an effort to not go on as many quests, but he can’t stop going completely, to his dismay. It pains him to leave his love, but it must be done. He has a tendency of rushing through quests to get back to Virgil as fast as he can.

Send me a ship for one of these!

anonymous asked:

Hello!!! Can you please do a sorting of the Disney princesses? But with the explanation thing you did when you did the Harry Potter next generation characters please? Thank you in advance 😁

A/N: so I have based these sortings from the original Disney movies and not from other movies or tv shows like Once Upon A Time or any other reference 



Snow White: Hufflepuff

So Hufflepuff was kind of the only house I really see Snow White being in: she is kind-hearted, wants to see the good in people - even to the point where she sees the good in the Evil Queen who wants to kill her. She is loyal and kind to the dwarfs basically as soon as she meets them, and she is gracious to them for letting her stay with them and then works hard to help them with the housework to try and make things fair.

Cinderella: Hufflepuff

Alright so I considered sorting Cinderella into Gryffindor because it takes guts and courage to disobey her stepmother and go to the ball, but I do think they ultimately she would be sorted into Hufflepuff. She is extremely hard-working, patient and displays kindness towards her stepmother and stepsisters even though they treat her like crap. I just think that her more dominant traits are Hufflepuff even though she did display some Gryffindor traits.

Aurora: Hufflepuff

So Sleeping Beauty was probably the hardest to sort out of all the princesses cause you know she basically doesn’t have any lines and is asleep for more than half the movie but with the glimpse of character traits we see of her, I would sort her into Hufflepuff. She seems extremely kind and loyal to Flora, Fauna, and Merriweather, also she displayed a kind-hearted nature and seemed like a hopeless romantic. Tbh we just don’t see enough of her to really know all that much about her.

Ariel: Ravenclaw

Like Cinderella I also contemplated sorting Ariel into Gryffindor because she was brave enough to go up to the surface away from everything she has known her entire life and she probably has the recklessness of a Gryffindor, but I think one of her major personality traits is how intrigued she is about the world, which was the main reason why she went to the surface in the first place. I think based on what we saw of Ariel, in my opinion, she was more curious about the outside world than she was brave.

Belle: Ravenclaw

I think this one is pretty obvious, Belle was always the odd one in the town she grew up in because she was interested in books and learning in a time where it was seen as ridiculous for a girl to want to be interested in those things. Again, she has qualities of a Gryffindor, going after her father with no backup and then choosing to take his place, but the more prevalent character trait we see from her, and probably the trait the Beast ended up falling in love with the most is her intellect and want to learn.

Jasmine: Slytherin

So I guess I’ve kinda always thought that Jasmine would be great in Slytherin, I mean I almost put her in Gryffindor but as I’ve said previously I don’t think it’s her most forefront personality trait - I think I’m discovering a pattern here lol. Tbh I see a bit of each house in Jasmine, but I think in ways that might not be completely obvious, she is ambitious, cunning and independent. She wants to experience what life would be like outside the walls of the castle and was able to make Jafar think she was actually into him when in reality she was just protecting those she loved.

Pocahontas: Gryffindor

I think Pocahontas could have also fitted in well at Hufflepuff too because she is very kind and has a good sense of what is right and wrong, but ultimately I think she would be sorted into Gryffindor because I think her main personality trait we see in the movie is her courageousness. She is also adventurous, a tad reckless like flinging herself into harm to save the man she loves, and she’s passionate about bringing peace and harmony.

Mulan: Gryffindor

Mulan is 100% Gryffindor in mind - I mean if going off to war in place of her father doesn’t say Gryffindor than I don’t know what does. She’s courageous, learns to have confidence in herself despite never having learnt to fight before - probably unlike all the men she was up against - and she was determined to never give up because she knew what the consequences of giving up meant for her and her family, and even when her secret was out she didn’t give up in the face of ridicule.

Tiana: Slytherin

I sorted Tiana into Slytherin because basically the entire plot line is about how ambitious she is and how determined she is in chasing her and her father’s dreams. She isn’t very cunning which is why I thought about putting her into Gryffindor, but I think she better suits Slytherin because she is super driven, independent, assertive and able to use her intelligence and wit to get what she wants and to achieve her goals.  

Rapunzel: Ravenclaw

Alright so I think Rapunzel could be in one of Hufflepuff, Gryffindor or Ravenclaw, but ultimately I sorted her into Ravenclaw because her adventurous side, which would be why she could be in Gryffindor, is driven by her curiosity about the world outside her tower, and the dreamer side of her, which people could see as a very Hufflepuff trait, I see more as an imaginative, creative and inquisitive side to her.

Merida: Gryffindor

I feel like Gryffindor is pretty much a no-brainer for Merida, she is impulsive, stubborn, courageous, passionate and as the movie title suggests, brave. She refuses to let anyone else decide the path she takes in life and much like with the witch she has a tendency to rush into things. She is a Gryffindor through and through and I won’t even consider putting her into another house.

++ she, Pocahontas and Mulan would make some pretty badass chasers for the Gryffindor Quidditch team just saying

Anna: Hufflepuff

I mean if this girl isn’t just the cutest puff ever then I don’t even know what I’m doing with my life. She is loyal to Elsa even after she goes running off to make an ice castle, she is warm hearted, sees the best in everyone *cough**cough* Hans *cough* before getting to know them well, she’s very accepting of Kristoff - remember she is a princess and he is an iceman yet she does not think she is above him. Also, she’d be able to stuff her face with chocolate anytime she wanted to with the common room next to the kitchens.

Elsa: Slytherin

I almost put Elsa in Ravenclaw, she’s practical and wise but I put her in Slytherin because I see her as the best type of Slytherin - she had the opportunity for great power yet she chose the love of her sister over that, she is introspective and hides within herself and isn’t the best with her emotions, which is something I consider a more Slytherin trait. Personally, I think she doesn’t fit Ravenclaw as much as Slytherin because in my mind she isn’t curious and inquisitive as I see most Ravenclaws to be.

Moana: Gryffindor

With everything that happened in the movie, I don’t see how you couldn’t think she was a Gryffindor. Her actions as courageous, slightly spontaneous and rash, idealistic and has a thirst for adventure. She does everything for the love of her family, especially her grandmother, and her island. It takes an enormous amount of bravery to leave home, even with the help of the ocean, and fight multiple villains.

++ she’d be the perfect Seeker to go with the trio of chasers above

A list of things that Diego, HP, Johnny and Gyro loves about their S/O :3


- Although he possesses none of it himself, Diego values kindness in his s/o - anybody who reminds him of his mother. 
- Their ambition, as long as it doesn’t outstrip his own - Diego does not want to be stuck with an s/o who does not want to better themselves and may be happy stuck in a rut. Diego wants to pull himself up to the highest echelons he can, and he’d prefer his s/o to be right beside him struggling up too. 
- Knowing what they want. Diego doesn’t have time to undo layers of mystery and get to what makes a person tick - he doesn’t want to have to break through a shell to see who they are inside. He’s too fond of his own to do that to someone who may retaliate. He prefers people to know what they want and ask for it, and his s/o is no exception. 
- Loyalty. He’s strongly possessive of all that he believes belongs to him, and to Diego his partner is just another possession. He loves not needing to worry about his s/o leaving him for someone else at any time. 

- Their strong sense of conviction and ability to stick to their beliefs; this is important to Hot Pants. She needs to believe in her s/o, and believe that they in turn believe in her. 
- That, above all else, they are a good person. They would help those in need and give the clothes off their back if they thought somebody else needed them more. Hot Pants is strongly religious no matter what and these little acts of kindness prove to her she has made the right choice when it comes down to choosing an s/o. 
- They, like her, don’t feel the need to fill the air with chit chat, and can just enjoy being with her. Hot Pants prefers this kind of warm, comfortable intimacy above all else. 

- That they don’t push him when he’s having one of his bad days. Sometimes, all he wants to do is curl up and die, and having his s/o crawl into bed beside him and hold him is much more useful for making him feel better than being forced to get up and face the world. 
- But that they do know when is okay to push him; when he’s just having a middle of the road day and not an awful one and they know that some fresh air might actually help. Their attitude to his problems in general. 
- That, above all else, they’re positive without being overbearing. Johnny knows that the world isn’t always fair, and he hated it for it - someone whose entire outlook is sunshine and rainbows is going to grate on his nerves something fierce. But the way that his s/o encourages him without insisting that ‘things will definitely get better’ is enough to make him believe that maybe, eventually, the might.

- That they laugh at all of his jokes; sometimes even he doesn’t know what he’s going for, but when their eyes sparkle and they let out that honest, genuine laugh he feels his heart swell. 
- That they help him know when to slow down; he has a tendency to rush into things very aggressively and occasionally it gets him into trouble, having his s/o to take hold of his arm and tell him to think things through has proved to be invaluable on several occasions.
- That they share his optimism that things will turn out alright as long as they stay focused. In general, just that his s/o is a good person who believes in him.

Would you be willing to share something of your AtLA fic? I really love that series and I'm curious about how your OC will change the 'verse.

Sure thing! It’s nowhere near done, because AtlA is perfection and I really don’t want to ruin it, so work is taking a while. But yeah, there will definitely be changes to canon, because that’s to me kind of the point to OC fics aside from the creation of the OC and everything that comes with that.

AtlA has an unfortunate lack of OC fics that don’t follow canon verbatim. I’ve found like two. So I at some point decided to write my own.

Anyway, the premise is as follows: Jingfei Yáng is the bastard daughter of a Fire Nation noble. She had it all (well, for definitions of all), but after an incident sends it all crashing down, is forced to join Prince Zuko on his quest to find and capture the avatar.

Here, have a little snippet from chapter 1 of Fireheart:

“Ah, good morning, Jingfei!” General Iroh greeted her jovially as perhaps the only other person dressed in something temperature appropriate. Though how he could drink steaming tea in this kind of heat she didn’t know. “Would you join this old man for tea?” he asked.

Like a proper Fire Nation girl - as proper as Fire Nation girls got, anyway - she took the challenge. “Just Fei. And of course,” she nodded. “Thank you. I brought buns for breakfast. Would you like some?”

“Why yes!” His eyes sparkled as he took in the food. “Our cook always makes them just right.”

“We’re lucky,” she agreed.

They drunk their tea together amicably. Iroh was probably Fei’s favorite person on board of Prince Zuko’s ship.

Her least favorite was currently training near-by. A spar against two of the soldiers, and Fei winced at his too-stiff-in-the-knees stance. Prince Zuko still had a lot to learn when it came to firebending. He had a tendency to rush ahead to the flashier exercises, leaving the basics untrained. She wondered which tutor had messed up in teaching him patience.

“Enjoying the scenery, Fei?” General Iroh asked with a glint in his eye.

“Well, he is shirtless,” she replied unrepentantly, and smirked saucily for good measure. “Almost makes up for his horrible personality.”

“Now, now,” Iroh laughed. “Prince Zuko is under a lot of stress. You would find him to be quite agreeable otherwise.”

“If you say so, General,” she said.

“Perhaps a spar between you two would resolve your differences?” he asked. It wasn’t the first time he’d made the suggestion. And oh, she would certainly enjoy sparring with a shirtless Zuko. She suppressed a smirk at the pictures her imagination conjured up.

I would be up to it,” she replied mildly. “But you know how Prince Zuko is.”

“As if she would stand a chance,” he’d scoffed the last time. “A waste of my time. She can’t even bend.”

Considering she had three older brothers, all of them excellent firebenders, and had been able to hold her own among them when she had been unable to bend for various reasons most of her life, she was fairly certain that the only one whose time would be wasted was her.

Then again, she was none too eager considering the last time she sparred against a firebender.

It's funny you think that Bakugou is suited for Gryffindor. I'd have thought that his pursuit for power and "I AM THE BEST" attitude would have landed him right in Slytherin. He's got a malfoy vibe all over him....

It’s mainly his tendency to rush into a fight no questions asked, regardless of whether or not it’s the best course of action to do so. He’s ambitious, but only insofar as he wants to win every fight. He’s cunning, but it comes second to his instinct to face things head-on as a point of pride.

Shockwave pt2, A Reactionary Post

I liked this weeks episode a lot better than last weeks. Part 2 did a much better job with a bit more emotional pay offs than the previous weeks. I felt some emotion at the second bomb but not any from the first.

What this episode is about: 
New Beginnings and New Endings
// Rusty and Gus’ relationship
// Major Crimes
// Commander Sharon Raydor
// Asst Chief Leo Mason

Innocence lost
// Parallels between Ortiz and Gus

// Rusty and Gus
// Sharon and Andy
// Sharon’s rank

Stroh’s Revenge
Since my theory was blown completely apart from this episode. I am a bit confused as to how Stroh was supposed to have played in this episode. They would not have mentioned him for nothing and I know going forward that he is going to be looming over the squad and Rusty next season. But this was supposed to be the series finale at one point - so I’m just left really confused.

Let’s make a deal
You can’t say that Wilkes isn’t a smart guy but at the same time the guy thought he was too big for his briches. So I’m glad that they managed to find a compromise. Where he gets time shaved off and still has time left to serve.

Winnie Davis is out Leo Mason is in
When Fritz appeared in this episode and told the squad that he’d been called back and that Davis had been sent in his place. I knew that Davis was in some big trouble and no longer in the running for the position. I don’t like Pope, not one single bit (and it still boogles my mind - because whatever did Brenda see in him I’ll never know). But it is wonderful seeing that Pope could see that she wasn’t suited to the job. Even he could see that she had jumped the gun with that conference and probably called mass amounts of panic that didn’t need to be held. 

Seeing how Davis is with MC, it’s probably not hard to see that she would treat other squads in a similar fashion. Verses how the other’s play with MC is a startling difference. While I’m sure that Pope never saw this - I am glad that he did see the conference and it made him change his mind about her. As I felt that with Sharon really and truly expressing how she felt and where she wanted to stay in the interview that Davis was the front runner. Which is the reason why I believe he put Davis in the position that she was in shockwave pt1. He was testing out if she had the skills for the job and she failed. 

I also love how MC puts in little clues about certain storylines and in such a way that you are supposed to remember them and then supposed to forget them. Like this moment when Fritz steals Mason away from MC - which I knew from that, that Mason had gotten the job. But later completely forgot when everything was going down with the bomb. Then they had to play with us a bit with Fritz saying how he would only be allowed to call Sharon, Captain for just a few moments more.

It seems that Moralas has himself a new crush.

They make such a big deal over that bomb in that bike at the evidence room and it never comes to fruition. So just…what was the point in all of that?

Relationship Tips for ENFPs

Relationships are a continual interplay of giving, receiving, and compromising. Although every MBTI type has its strengths and weaknesses, your type need not determine your behavior. Moving outside your comfort zone opens up the opportunity for healthy personal and interpersonal development. There are certain human needs that are universal and this makes it possible for any two types to connect with one another. If two people are willing to lower their defenses and genuinely attend to each other’s needs, then the relationship has a great chance for success and happiness.

Astrology Witch Aesthetic: Aries

leader, brazen, creative, original, youthful, passionate

An Arian witch is very similar to their element, Fire: they are quick, driven and uncontrollable. They are leaders and often bring together witches to take the place of their leader. Arians initiate, they create, they are the ember. Creation is their art. The art of manifestation comes naturally to them. But, like Fire, so does destruction. They have the tendency to rush and use brute force rather than finesse in their spells. Tangible spells are more comfortable to them.
