Crisp shirts. Sparkling cufflinks. Neat sheets. 

Just some of the many things that spring to mind when you think of him. 

Calum Hood, CEO of Hood Incorporations, hasn’t left your mind ever since you met to discuss a partnership deal. Your father owns a business similar to Calum’s and you, his devoted daughter, handle some of the more day-to-day tasks, including meeting with the extremely attractive business partner.

From the start you knew Calum was different. Maybe it was the elegance in which he operated, the silky smoothness embedded in his voice. 

Or, perhaps, it was the fact that he’d had you spread across his desk within ten minutes of your first encounter.

“Once upon a time in a faraway land, there was a tiny kingdom; peaceful, prosperous, and rich in romance and tradition. Here in a stately chateau, there lived a widowed gentleman, and his little daughter, Cinderella. Although he was a kind and devoted father, and gave his beloved child every luxury and comfort, still, he felt she needed a mother’s care. And so he married again, choosing for his second wife, a woman of good family, with two daughters just Cinderella’s age, by name, Anastasia and Drizella. It was upon the untimely death of this good man, however, that the stepmother’s true nature was revealed: cold, cruel, and bitterly jealous of Cinderella’s charm and beauty, she was grimly determined to forward the interests of her own two awkward daughters. Thus, as time went by, the chateau fell into disrepair, for the family fortunes were squandered upon the vain and selfish stepsisters while Cinderella was abused, humiliated, and finally forced to become a servant in her own house. And yet, through it all, Cinderella remained ever gentle and kind, for with each dawn she found new hope that someday her dreams of happiness would come true.”

Voltron Star Wars AU

I didn’t want to place this in any specific period, so it’s a bit of a mishmash.

  • Shiro is a Jedi. He is assigned to protect Senator Allura - sometimes from herself. While Jedi are not allowed relationships, he finds himself falling deeply for her. This causes him an ideological crisis he didn’t expect to have on such an easy assignment. During Zarkon’s inevitable takeover he is capture, tortured and given a weaponised robotic arm by the Sith Lord Haggar, and consequently loses his memory.
  • Senator Allura of Altea is the daughter of King Alfor, and fiercely devoted to democracy and the rights of all people throughout the galaxy. She will frequently be the one pushing for work reforms and is deeply distrustful of Senator Zarkon. Doesn’t quite understand the problems Shiro is going through with his feelings vs his teachings. After Zarkon’s takeover and the destruction of her planet, she becomes the leader of the Resistance, resolute and unwavering. When she goes missing, she is heartbroken, but doesn’t show it. She is also Force sensitive, though never undertook Jedi training.
  • Kytiv is Shiro’s padawan. He is impulsive and stubborn and often throws himself into danger without a second thought, but he is also powerful and promises to be a great Jedi. It has been many years since a Galra was shown to be Force sensitive, so he has the hopes of most of his system to uphold. Also a surprisingly talented pilot. He harbours feelings for Lance, but would never dare to tell him.
  • Lance is a pilot who joins the Resistance when his planet is taken over by the Galra. He is talented, but tends to overestimate his capabilities. Has a bit of a crush on General Allura (understandable) and greatly dislikes Kytiv, mostly because of Kytiv’s raw natural flying talent and Force sensitivity. However, once they learn to work together, they become a formidable force to be reckoned with.
  • Hunk is Lance’s best friend and the finest engineer in the galaxy. He reluctantly joins the Resistance along with Lance, and at first he wonders why the hell he’s there at all. But then he is stranded on the planet Balmera, and he encounters Shay, one of its people. She convinces him to continue the fight, and follows him back to the Resistance with the blessing of her parents - except her brother. Shay is a skilled healer.
  • Pidge and Matt (and Rover) are smugglers. They try to keep out of galactic conflicts, playing both sides against each other whenever necessary. They’re mostly in it for the money. They find and take in an amnesiac Shiro, whom Matt develops feelings for, and eventually return him to the Resistance. They are rivals with Rolo and Nyma, another pair of galactic ne’er-do-wells. However, there might be ulterior motives for their travels beyond cold hard cash, as their father, Sam, went missing not long after Zarkon’s takeover…

At the same time, Burr cultivated the distinguishing legislature and constitutional thinker (and fellow Princetonian) James Madison. In The spring of 1794, he introduced Madison, then a forty-three-year-old bachelor, to Dolley Payne Todd. At one point, probably the year before he played matchmaker, Burr boarded with Dolley’s mother, Mary, and he remained close to the Payne family. When Dolley’s first husband died during the yellow fever epidemic of 1793, Burr agreed to serve as her son’s guardian. Dolley chose Burr to be her son’s sole guardian because, as she expressed it in her will, “the education of my son is to him and to me the most interesting of all earthly concerns.” BUrr and the widow shared views on children’s education: his unusual devotion to his daughter’s training reaffirmed Dolley’s trust in his abilities.
—  Fallen Founder: Aaron Burr, page 124
You know not, yet, the sort of love that strikes like a lightning bolt; that clutches hold of you by the heart, as irrevocably as death; that becomes the lodestar by which you steer the rest of your life.
I would not wish such a love on anyone, man or woman, for it can make your life a paradise, or it can destroy you utterly

Hoshidan Festival: Laslow and Soleil Parent-Child Convo

Cheers to Laslow for being a doting Papa. And cheers to him being such a sappy couple with his wife, I’m so happy that he’s being loved at last~ imagining Laslow and Azura being a sappy couple gives me so much feels aghhhh.

Soleil is such a devoted daughter, have you noticed? In their supports, she’s fine with him being a skirt-chaser, but she gets wary if he speaks a little too fondly of a particular woman and even points out that “Mom wouldn’t like that”. She loves her parents together and it’s adorable.

We need to view our parental roles as being a privilege. We are training heirs to the kingdom of God; children who will make a difference in this world for God. As you pursue the challenge of being a godly parent, you can be assured that God is on your team. He will provide the wisdom you need for every situation. He also will protect you and bless you as you walk in His ways.
Prayer: Lord, I realize that as a parent I have a tremendous task. I know I cannot do it on my own. I need Your wisdom to guide me each day. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Psalm 127:3, “Children are a heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is His reward.”

The next few months were hectic ones. Primrose, Clover, and Sage all grew really close again, with one of the twins visiting what seemed like every day to visit with their new niece and their brother and sister in law.

At times, Sage would leave Lauren home to watch Opal and go visit Primrose and her new adopted toddler named Amira, or go visit Clover and Shayla in their cramped apartment.

He and Lauren were growing distant because Sage was trying to cope in any way he knew how–talking with his sisters, devoting himself to work, spending time with his daughter. But nothing was making him feel better.

So, it wasn’t long before Sage found himself at the bar again, each and every night after work.

Cinderella – Cancer

The heavy Cancer themes in this vintage tale are undeniable when one looks closely. Cinderella is shadowed by a matriarch; one she is forced to serve and respect, one whose strength and cunning is manipulativly displayed, one who appears to be adoringly devoted to her daughters, and one who is the undeniable head of the household. Cinderella is a domestic servant who spends her days inside the house, cooking and cleaning for her family, aided by her animal companions. Her story is directed by her two mother figures. The wicked step-mother conditions her to behave a certain way. But her Fairy Godmother steps in and gives her gifts and permission to follow her own dreams, as a loving mother should. Cinderella’s transformation was more than just a dress and a prince. It was one mother freeing her from another.

“And yet, through it all, Cinderella remained ever gentle and kind, for with each dawn she found new hope that someday her dreams of happiness would come true.”

As a soon-to-be teacher watching Finding Dory (spoilers)

Whilst watching Finding Dory, the aspect about the film that stood out to me the most was how Dory’s parents dealt with her short term memory loss. Though they worried for her, they did not shame her for her inability to remember; they found ways to provide her with the tools to interact with her environment. They never lost faith in their daughter’s ability to preform at a level that characters saw as only achievable by able-minded individuals.

As a soon-to-be Early Childhood teacher, Dory’s parents and their tireless devotion to their daughter, in spite of her condition spoke to me. Pixar demonstrated in a animated movie about fish the importance of differentiation and accommodation for students with learning disability. 

Instead of either isolating Dory from the outside world or forcing her to “be like the other children”, Dory’s parents utilized a plethora of strategies to give their daughter the ability to navigate a world that has trouble accommodating her condition. And Dory owes her survival and success to her parents, ultimately allowing her to find happiness. We, as educatosr, and even as future parents, need to take a lesson from this film:

Children with learning disabilities can succeed in our world, in their own unique ways, if we take the time to help find the strategies that they need, and, if we have faith in their capabilities. Just like Dory, we just need to keep swimming :)

Stuart Scott, a longtime anchor at ESPN, died Sunday morning at the age of 49.

Among the features of the new ESPN studio in Bristol is a wall of catchphrases made famous by on-air talent over the years. An amazing nine of them belong to one man – from his signature “Boo-Yah!” to “As cool as the other side of the pillow” to “He must be the bus driver cuz he was takin’ him to school.”

That man is Stuart Scott, and his contributions to the sports lexicon are writ large. But they are only one aspect of his legacy. When he passed away, he left behind so much more. He inspired his colleagues with his sheer talent, his work ethic and his devotion to his daughters, Taelor, 19, and Sydni, 15. He defied convention and criticism to help bring this network into a new century. He spoke to the very athletes he was talking about with a flair and a style that ESPN president John Skipper says, “changed everything.”

African-American. ESPN knew enough to have sportscasters who represented 45 million Americans, not to mention 80 percent of the players in NBA and 70 percent of those in the NFL. What we didn’t know, until Stuart got here, was how important it was to have someone who could relate to them.

“He was a trailblazer,” says ESPN anchor Stan Verrett, “not only because he was black – obviously black – but because of his style, his demeanor, his presentation. He did not shy away from the fact that he was a black man, and that allowed the rest of us who came along to just be ourselves.”

“Yes, he brought hip-hop into the conversation,” says Harris, “but I would go further than that. He brought in the barber shop, the church, R&B, soul music. Soul period.”

Some of his best moments on the air came when he adopted the persona of a preacher – “Can I get a witness from the congregation?!” And one of his best moments off the air came when a producer suggested he change a reference on his NBA show from Omega Psi Phi, the fraternity of Michael Jordan and Shaquille O'Neal, to something more universal, like Animal House.

“I have friends who have no idea what that movie is about,” Stuart told him. “That movie was made two decades ago, and black fraternities have been around since 1906.”

“He didn’t just push the envelope,” says sports radio host and former ESPN anchor Dan Patrick. “He bulldozed it.”

And he saved his best for his last year on the air. At the ESPYS on July 16, shortly before his 49th birthday and following another round of cancer surgery, Stuart accepted the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance with strength, humor, grace and these eloquent words: “When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live.”
