Ichigo & Rukia 16 For the ficlet thingy

ooh shit okay wow here I go

16.“I did a pregnancy test.”

     Rukia had no idea how to approach Ichigo on the matter. How did you tell someone you were pregnant anyways? They never really had any form of sex ed in the Sereitei, hell, Rukia didn’t even know she could get pregnant! Constant morning sickness and a pregnancy test told her that, oh yes, she could in fact get pregnant. After about 30 minutes of freaking out in the bathroom at his house, Rukia knew that she had to tell Ichigo. They’d been dating for about 2 years now, she kinda had to; especially since the both of them were particularly…active. After spending another 15 minutes coming up with a deliberate way to deliver the news to Ichigo, Rukia exited the bathroom and had made her way downstairs to the kitchen where she knew Ichigo was. Seeing his unknowing smile though, threw everything she had planned out the window. Did Ichigo greet her? Who knew? The moment Rukia stood across from him at the table, it came out.

     “I did a pregnancy test.”

Have you considered my offer?

Two very different offers made over two distinct meals. One offer has all the appearance of respect and free will, while the other is respectful and free in actuality. 

1x04 - The vigilante seeks a colleague. John Diggle, solider and speaker of wisdom, is the first to learn of Oliver’s dual identity. Oliver may be The Hood and a killer, but Diggle freely accepts the offer. Thus begins a partnership and foundation of a brotherhood.

3x16 - The mastervillain seeks a successor. Ra’s Al Ghul, leader and manipulator of armies, is the last to try to sever Oliver’s dual identity completely. Oliver may have sworn off killing and be a hero, but he accepts the offer eventually when he’s left with no choice. Thus, what is the beginning of the end for Ra’s Al Ghul will simultaneously test the brotherhood between John and Oliver and cause a rift in their friendship.

Hey guys! I haven’t seen anyone posting about a good thing that happened in Canada today too.

For those who don’t know, Canada is made up of 10 provinces and 3 territories. Our provinces are considered co-sovereign under the Constitution and have their own lieutenant-governors. Our territories are not considered sovereign, but parts of the federal realm, and have a commissioner instead. I guess it’s somewhat similar to territories of the United States, except that their representatives can actually vote and participate in the government’s House and Senate - though their seats are few.

Today the Northwest Territories were given rights on par with a province’s! So now Northwest Territory land is officially recognized as their land, not the government’s, and they have the authority to control their own resources.

Why it’s great:

  • The money profited off of the territory’s resources will go to the people of that territory, and not the federal government.
  • The people of the territory now have autonomy and the power of self-determination to build a better economy.
  • Financially and socially, the northern territories have suffered under a lack of water resources being available to remote communities and utter lack of crime control. Why? Because the federal government simply could not be bothered to take care of the people in the territories they were meant to protect.
  • Now that they have rights to control their own assets and resources, help can be given to the people who need it.
  • More Aboriginal representation in their own affairs!
  • The first territory to gain rights on par with a province was Yukon territory, and now Northwest - giving Nunavut, the third province, ample prcedent to push for their own autonomy!

Hickies.

I think they’re cute. Not the fucking big, nasty, huge, fugly ones. But the little hidden ones. It’s like a persons way of claiming their lover. You see a boy or girl with one peaking out from under their shirt collar, you know they’re taken. You know they have someone special. Its like a persons way of claiming them, like, “you’re mine.” I dunno, I just think it’s cute.

Civilization and its Discontents According to Ben Tolman

http://socks-studio.com/2015/03/08/civilization-and-its-discontents-according-to-ben-tolman/

The hyper-detailed ink-on-paper drawings by Ben Tolman depict the built environment and the effects it has on the people who inhabit it. Cities (City, 2013) and suburbs (Suburbs, 2012), skyscrapers stripped off of their outer walls (Urban, 2015) or rows of one-bedroom houses, fictional or real,…
