the ocean is six miles deep

Oliver Tate: Ask me how deep the ocean is.

Jordana Bevan: Shut up.

Oliver Tate: Come on, just ask me.

Jordana Bevan: Why?

Oliver Tate: ‘Cause I know the answer.

Jordana Bevan: Oh! Do you?

Oliver Tate: Yes, I do.

Jordana Bevan: How deep is the ocean?

Oliver Tate: I’m not gonna say.

Jordana Bevan: I’m brokenhearted.

Oliver Tate: The ocean is six miles deep.

Jordana Bevan: Good.

When I was a kid, whenever I’d feel small or lonely, I’d look up at the stars. Wondered if there was life up there. Turns out I was looking in the wrong direction. When alien life entered our world, it was from deep beneath the Pacific Ocean. A fissure between two tectonic plates. A portal between dimensions. The Breach. I was fifteen when the first Kaiju made land in San Francisco. By the time tanks, jets, and missiles took it down, six days and 35 miles later, three cities were destroyed. Tens of thousands of lives were lost. We mourned our dead, memorialized the attack, and moved on. And then, only six months later, the second attack hit Manila. Then the third one hit Cabo. And then the fourth. And then we learned this was not gonna stop. This was just the beginning. We needed a new weapon. The world came together, pooling it’s resources and throwing aside old rivalries for the sake of the greater good. To fight monsters, we created monsters of our own. The Jaeger program was born.

“Ask me how deep the ocean is.

 Shut up.

 Come on, just ask me.

 Why?

‘Cause I know the answer.

 Oh! Do you?

 Yes, I do.

 How deep is the ocean?

 I’m not gonna say.

 I’m brokenhearted.

 The ocean is six miles deep.

 Good.”

              - Submarine (2010)

Imagine you’re underwater.
Imagine you’ve got a tower of hearts–
one stacked on top of the other:
every soft-smile-on-the-subway you ever loved.
So the ocean is six miles deep,
and you’ve got this lifeline
straight to the surface.
But the catch is,
you have to touch them.
The catch is,
you have to hold that love in your hands
for the first time since the last time
you swore you got over it.

You would drown.

The thing about heartbreak
is it feels too big for your body.
You become cavernous–
a walking Mariana Trench.
Nobody knows how deep you go, because
the pressure is heavy enough to fold skeletons
into paper cranes, and naive enough
to call this beautiful.
All those people who tried
to love the empty out of you,
they didn’t know they were kissing
deep sea monsters–that you had giant squid
in your belly, that your lips were the lure,
that your hands were the teeth,
that you could blue ringed octopus
your arms around them and drag them
to the deep.

So you loved more like a pelican eel
than a person. And you’re still trying
to outrun the heartache that your heartache
set fire to. But this is a burning house with
no doors, and
no windows,
suspended in the middle of all that empty
in your chest.
But you will put that fire out
with the oceans on your tongue.
You will put it out if it means
jumping headfirst into the hurricane–
you will do it even if it means a lifetime at sea.
You will do it if it means saving yourself,
even when you had no intention of surviving.

I am ready to go down with the ship,
but I will not take you with me.

—  SURVIVOR’S GUILT, by Ashe Vernon

if there is anything that I have learned from watching the movie based on the book “Submarine”, is that YEAH, marriages fall apart because sometimes two people aren't meant to be and you end up learning from them. and maybe they work themselves out or they dont, either way there isnt much you can do even if your thoughts/actions/or feelings are pushed into the situation, those two people will decide in the end what the best is for everyone, especially for themselves. The 2nd thing I learned from this movie, is no matter how naive you might be like Oliver’s character who doesnt know what hes doing half of the time, you can meet a girl who treats you like absolute shit, weather you become their best friend and are ignored and are told not to involve emotions because they are “gay” (which doesnt sound like a bad idea actually), you end up trying everything to make them happy even if they blow everything off that you do for them, even if you are there for all of their problems and try to help them out, even if that involves straying away from them so they can figure themselves out. If they actually wake up, see and realize what another person has done for them, and is willing to keep doing for them no matter how much it hurts, if that possibility is there to make things right… then maybe it wont matter so much what they do for them, but that they are there to make it right, and are there to be with you till the very end.

but then again, maybe I wasnt supposed to get this kind of message from the film. Im pretty sure most people will say that the story doesnt give of this kind of vibe at all, this is my opinion of it tho, along with a phew different ones. I guess you’ll just have to watch it and give your own different thought on it.

you can keep walking into the ocean, ill take one step ahead of yours just to show you how far im willing to go into the deep for you.

the last scene made me think that.

I badly wanted to paint some clouds and sea so you know. :) Based on Submarine, one of my favorite books and a beautiful movie with an incredible soundtrack!

“Ask me how deep the ocean is.”“Shut up.”“Come on, just ask me.”“Why?”“‘Cause I know the answer.”“Oh! Do you?”“Yes, I do.”“How deep is the ocean?”“I’m not gonna say.”“I’m brokenhearted.”“The ocean is six miles deep.”“Good.”

In 2005, the Cassini orbiter discovered huge, 125-mile-high geysers spraying from the south pole of Enceladus, a small and icy moon that orbits Saturn. Since then, scientists have speculated where the geysers draw from—and whether that water source might be home to some form of life. The most intriguing idea was that the geysers indicated the presence of a subsurface ocean. Later, the discovery that the plumes contain water vapor, nitrogen, methane, carbon dioxide and other chemicals associated with life made the geysers even more exciting. 

Now, new data has confirmed that Enceladus does indeed have an ocean, and it’s buried beneath 25 miles of ice at the south pole. The ocean appears to be about six miles deep and may be as large or larger than Lake Superior.

KAYDEN’S FIC RECS: PART ONE

Hey folks so as you can see today we’re going through fifty of the best fic i’ve ever read. This is in celebration of hitting 200+ bookmarks on ao3, school finishing and the fact that i’ve managed to publish twenty seven separate fics this year, so here we go and honestly I hope you enjoy all of these as much as I did because they’re all absolutely amazing.

Haikyuu!!

IwaOi

Look For Him by Leryline

Oikawa has kissed Iwaizumi more times than either of them can count; it’s a constant thing, their lips never really leaving the other’s skin. There are, however, times when they’ve kissed that are burned into their memories. Eight of them, to be precise.

15 Minutes by Rightofpostponement

Iwa-chan gets the 15 minutes of internet fame his face deserves.

Submarine by Reminscees

“You look like an alien.”

Hajime told Tooru that when he met him, all three times.

Part one: the ocean is six miles deep

Chasing Paper Suns by Carafin

Some days Hajime likes to think of himself as Oikawa’s counterpart—the two of them blending into a single devastating unit, the invincible setter and his unyielding ace, the bond between them unbreakable and true. Other days he feels like he is chasing after a rising sun.

In Defense of Reptiles (and Other Gross Things) by Rikke

In their seventh year, Oikawa is chosen to be the Hogwarts champion in the Triwizard Tournament, and Iwaizumi suffers.

twined by Inberin

the life and times of a simple half-dryad botanist/cafe-owner and his wayward best friend, accentuated with jasmine extract and a hint of mint

IwaKage:

I Almost Got Away With It Too By Skihale

Kageyama has been able to keep this secret for, well, too long apparently.

real By Sheelia

Their eyes meet then, a moment of confusion that morphed into recollection, and Kageyama can hear his stomach churn. Of all the possible scenarios for a reunion – at a volleyball game, at the train station, anywhere at all in Miyagi – and it’s come down to this.

Now that Kageyama’s found him, in a small marketing firm nestled in the crook of Nihonbashi, he doesn’t know what to do.

OiHina:

growing up (nostalgia) By spacegirljk

’“I am so afraid, Shouyou.” he says truthfully, the words slipping past his lips before he can stop them. “I can’t take it.”

“Can’t take what?” Hinata asks, adjusting the way he is laying.

“I’m getting older, and I haven’t done anything yet,” Oikawa says.“’
Nostalgia comes in the form of a ginger boy in blue, reminding Oikawa that youth is fleeting.

The model made of sunshine By asexualhugglebean

Oikawa Tooru is one of the most popular male models in Japan, he’s rank 3 in the Top 20 best models and people practically worship the ground he walks on.

When a new guy suddenly jumps the ranks and makes rank 15 in less than two months, Oikawa is annoyed, “what’s with this guy? Where did he come from? I bet he’s not even that cute…”

Oikawa couldn’t be more wrong.

ten thousand to one By spacegirljk

space is cold, or so oikawa says, but earth is colder without the one you love.

DaiSuga:

Black and Blue by Mtrash

Daichi’s new (temporary) neighbor is not only stunningly beautiful but also funny, friendly, with just a touch of mysterious.

Naturally, Daichi freaks the fuck out.

Part one: Rainbow Building AU

good for you by Wildkitte

As the evening cooled down to oranges and deep blues, Suga and Daichi snuck out to the streets of the city. Suga kept his head down, looking at the ground, and stroked Daichi’s hand lightly and quickly like a greeting, a reminder, and picked up his speed, making his way through the sea of people knowing Daichi would follow in his wake.

Part One: Gladiator AU

The Man I Met Online by Leryline

Sugawara Koushi is a college student who’s unlucky in love in the gentlest way and has a dark secret hidden in his bones.

Sawamura Daichi is a kid’s volleyball coach whose relationships fall apart like wet paper and who has never experienced momentous love in his life.

When they’re both suggested to trial online dating, circumstances turn in a way they never thought possible.

But, as usual, that’s only the tip of the iceberg.

BokuAka

In Another Life by LittleLuxray

Sleeping didn’t come as easy as it used to. Bokuto knew this, and now Akaashi did, too.

Rules by ConesOfDunshire

In which Akaashi Keiji is an overworked accountant who stumbles upon Bokuto one night playing the piano in the lobby of his work. Bokuto is different, that much is obvious. But with such supreme musical talent and a smile so dazzling it rivals the sun, there’s just something about him that brings Akaashi back every night.

Part One: And When It’s Done We Will Walk Where the Road Meets the Sun

Insomniac Olympics by Aetherdrive

Akaashi never thought he could inspire anyone, let alone an artist – and then he met Bokuto.

bang! now we’re even by Authoress

Akaashi only has two rules when it comes to his profession. One, complete the job as swiftly and cleanly as possible. Two, never trust anyone who smells like blood.

Rule three is to shoot Owl Eyes in the face should he ever come across him, but Akaashi never tells anyone about that one.

right in the head by Mysecretfanmoments

That was the other thing: when Keiji had said he wanted to make his way home, Bokuto had agreed—as if it didn’t matter where they went. He hadn’t said “we should look for a community” or “there’s probably nothing there anymore”.

He’d just asked which way.

BTS/Bangtan Boys

Taekook/VKook

Taste of Ink by Sugamins

Jungkook is a drug runner for the largest gang in the whole of Busan: the Sam Yong Pa.

One day he bumps into a runner for a rival gang in the next district that has trespassed into their territory: a Geum Sung Pa boy called Jimin. Jimin has a friend, a goon for the rival gang.

Taehyung beats people up for a living, and boy, does he look good when he’s doing it.

But their blossoming friendships reignite old gang flames and causes the most brutal gang war the country has ever seen.

Dragons destroy and stars explode.

Our Red Scarf (Keep Me Warm) by Mirrerover

Jeongguk is trouble. Taehyung likes trouble a bit more than he probably should.

Just don’t tell Jimin about it.

pick me up, buttercup By Vppa

Which freakin sucks, because Jungkook’s forearm will now forever read “Hey baby, if you were a booger, I’d pick you first.”

What the fuck, universe.

Give Me Your Hands (I Will Pick the Stars for You) By Mindheist

I miss you like the moon misses the sun, destined to chase you until the end of time.

Kiss Me Hard Before You Go By Mindheist

Dramatization. Do not try at home.

Part One: I’m Feeling Electric Tonight

I Just Wanted You to Know (That Baby, You’re the Best) By Mindheist

If you experience headaches, nausea, or heartbreak, discontinue use and talk to your doctor because relationships might not be right for you.

Part Two: I’m Feeling Electric Tonight

Think I’ll Miss You Forever By Mindheist

Happy endings sold separately.

Part Three: I’m Feeling Electric Tonight

Carthage must be destroyed By BooTaeful

Jeongguk is the son of one of Rome’s most important men, a respected centurion in his own right. But he finds himself weakened in the face of one gorgeous, golden-skinned slave boy from the far east.

Taehyung just wants to return home, but he has begun to accept his new life in Rome, partly due to a kind domina who was from his homeland. Now, he has her son to answer to.

Kiss With a Fist By Justanotherstarlessnight

“Need a little help, love?” Jungkook asks, teasing him.

“Nah I had it all under control, sweetheart,” Taehyung answers with a smile, blood oozing from his split lip. Goddamn even smiling hurt now. Fuckity fuck fuck. Jungkook only rolls his eyes, his cocky smirk never slipping and Taehyung almost forgets how much pain he’s in.

Damon’s Conviction By Eclairdeluxe

Loving him, Jungkook supposes, was as inevitable as that first peek of light across the horizon at sunrise, creeping up and then encompassing him all at once.

Bound to love By Yoongi_Howell

In a ceremony where two souls are bound in a marriage, what happens when Jeon Jungkook is forced to marry the man he learns to hate, Kim Taehyung. Will Jungkook learn to love or will Taehyung

break first?

I Can Make You (Cry For Me) By xBueTie

Being stoned makes you do a lot of things, like fuck Jeon Jungkook for example.

Part One to: Empty Spaces (Don’t Talk About It)

Empty Spaces (Don’t Talk About It) By xBueTie

Jeongguk has the habit of reading too much into things, especially when it comes to Taehyung. He isn’t sure how it came to this - but he knows he’s in too deep.

Part Two to: I Can Make You (Cry For Me)

You Got Me Going Mad (When You’re Dressed Like That) By Bruhnam299

It isn’t every night, that Jungkook comes across a beautiful, dancing cherub in the desert skies.

Part Five to: Baby, Let Me Love You All Night

TaeJiKook:

House of Cards By Sugamins (orphan_account) (very NSFW)

Jungkook is the heir to a mob empire, the most notorious in the whole of Seoul. Taehyung is a rookie sent in to infiltrate by his select team and bring the empire crumbling down.

“You knew the game and played it, it kills to know that you have been defeated.”

love triangles are out of fashion (three’s not really a crowd) By xmysweet

Jeongguk didn’t think this dating thing would really work, but then again he also didn’t think he’d end up casually seeing not one, but two hot guys

& making a bet to see who could get a boyfriend first was not Taehyung’s finest idea, but Jimin thought they would at least have different tastes in men

YoonMin:

pretty (odd) By Chanrin

in which min yoongi is a librarian and he happens to fall deeply in love with park jimin, the regular who’s in love with literature just a little too much.

onsra By Iconstantlythankgodforparkjimin

jimin is running out of ways to make yoongi stay. yoongi doesn’t want to stay. jimin is running out of time. yoongi has to stay.

Part One: Bury Us Alive

Voltron: Legendary Defender

Klance

Supercharged By Becca2793

“I figured you’d be more pumped up for this one.”

He cocks his head to the side in confusion. Why this one in particular? “I’m…always pumped up…?”

“More,” she reiterates.

“Why?”

“Well, because Keith is gonna be here, obviously.”

i bet you look good on the dancefloor By xShieru

Lance McClain’s dancing career begins and ends with Keith.

Keith just wants to find out what Lance’s deal is.

Secret Ingredients By Lynn1998

Lance lives a comfortable life in the outside mall nicknamed the streets of Voltron. He bakes for a living with his friend, Hunk, and enjoys the company of the other store owners near him. Life seems great and easy until some pretty boy with a mullet opens a bakery across the street from him.

What a Healing Pod Can’t Repair By Remember_Me

The compromised wormhole was ripping apart at the seams, sending everyone spiraling away in completely different directions. Lance could feel himself being pulled and bent in ways he was definitely not supposed to be.

Undertow By BlueRoboKitty (heads up very nsfw, not necessary for part two)

Keith has been struggling with a secret for a long time, but luckily or unluckily, Lance is there to help him out. Because Lance is a good guy like that.

Part one: It’s the Galra Heat

Proper Care and Feeding of Your Galra Companion for Dummies By BlueRoboKitty

A longfic of really short chapters in which Galra Keith is actually a little shit, and Lance is just trying to be helpful without losing his damn mind. He just wants to live, but hot damn, the sex is too good. And this is why Lance prefers dogs.

Part two: It’s the Galra Heat

Dirty Laundry By Gibslythe

“Two whole months of free laundry in exchange for two weeks of being my fake boyfriend. Deal?”

Keith hesitated for a moment. Was this really worth it? Hardly. Lance was an asshole, and he wasn’t sure what fake dating would entail. But, free laundry was free laundry, right?

“Alright, it’s a deal.”

Yuri On Ice

Victuuri

Next Stop, Happiness By frolickingangels

Ever since Yuuri had learned how to walk, talk, and remember things, it had always been this one special person – him with his silver hair and blue eyes and kind smile.

Yuuri could still remember it. It was almost like a fairytale, a little blurry, a little unsure if it was a dream or a real memory, but it was as if when he first opened his eyes, it was Viktor’s beaming smile that greeted him in a white, almost snowy backdrop.

saturn’s rings By Authoress

It’s over, but Yuuri doesn’t feel that way at all.

Unwritten By kaizuka

whatever you write on your own skin appears on your soulmate, but when there is a language barrier, meeting becomes just a little more difficult than it should be.

Viktor Is In The Closet By PineappleGhost

Viktor is in the closet, figuratively yes, but also literally. But it’s not just any closet, it’s Katsuki Yuuri’s closet and he is trapped until he can sneak out. If he can sneak out.

Which Is Heavier? By Corsairway

Victor asks the age old question about steel and feathers while Yuuri begins to actually worry for his boyfriend.

Praise Please By Surveycorpsjean

Viktor is a good coach. Strict, talented.

But Viktor is kind. He gives praise like a waterfall, overflowing and loud and it makes Yuuri drown.


OKAY NOW THAT’S DONE: find my ao3 here so you can troll through either my own works, or my bookmarks and I really do hope you enjoy all of these!!
