Why We Shout In Anger

A Hindu saint who was visiting the river Ganges to take a bath and found a group of family members on the banks, shouting in anger at each other. He turned to his disciples smiled and asked.

‘Why do people shout in anger at each other?’

The disciples thought for a while, then one of them said: ’Because we lose our calm, we shout.’

‘But, why should you shout when the other person is just next to you? You can as well tell him what you have to say in a soft manner?’ asked the saint.

The disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the other disciples.

Finally the saint explained:

‘When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other to cover that great distance.

What happens when two people fall in love? They don’t shout at each other but talk softly, Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is either nonexistent or very small…’

The saint continued: ‘When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and that’s all. That is how close two people are when they love each other.’

He looked at his disciples and said:

‘So when you argue do not let your hearts get distant. Do not say words that distance each other more, or else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return.’

~ Hindu Proverb

Cybermatsu Appreciation Post

There’s been a lot of good appreciation for this duo in recent months and honestly this isn’t going to cover all the great stuff I’ve heard from other people! I wanted to try and figure out what makes them fascinating as a dynamic. And tbh these two don’t always get the attention they deserve anyway.

HEY GUYS, GUESS WHAT.

I RESURRECTED MY SCANNER.

So here’s the ACTUAL IN-ISSUE version of the episode guide for the season-that-never-was, along with a bonus page on a Sari upgrade with a beloved character, and a bio for her classmates, which includes the cutest little Nightbeat oh my god I need twenty.  As you can see, the episode guide’s pictures do clarify a few things (not that everyone hadn’t already figured out Prowl was in Allsparkalypse Now!).

Other than a not especially great SD SG comic on the back panel and the Marauder Megatron cover (already posted by many other great people!) this was the entirety of the TFA-related content in the issue.  Cheers!


These are all taken from the newest (Oct/Nov 2016) issue of the Transformers Collector’s Club official magazine.  Issue 71.

HIBANA ♡ English Cover【rachie】 ヒバナ

Trapped inside a love I know I can’t escape.

Mix: @rezyon

I’ve been in love with this song ever since its release!! >< It’s one of the only songs that’s gotten me pumped up in a while now… other than Sand Planet of course (which Juby has a great cover of btw). 

All the hardships of writing a vocaloid song… I think it comes to say that it doesn’t matter what kind of vocaloid content creator you are, we all feel Miku’s fickle love at some point and sometimes it can drive us mad.

But like the title mentioned, our love for her and the ideas we have prove to be a SPARK unlike any other that we just can’t get rid of… not that I want to anyway hehe.

Thank you so much to Rez for mixing, please follow the dude! He sings and writes his own music too, maybe look out for a collab between us one day? ;9

Why I Love Anidala

After my post yesterday, I feel like it’s important to list some of the things I think make Anakin and Padme a truly sweet and badass couple. So here we go~

1) They balance each other well. They’re both smart, and often take risks in a fight, but when they do the other always has them covered in any way they’re lacking. They have great chemistry on the battlefield!

2) They have great chemistry OFF the battlefield. We don’t get to see it quite as much due to how busy their lives are, but their moments together are very tender and sweet. They make each other happy and keep the other grounded. Joking and the ability to lay back is important for them. It’s their home.

3) Anakin reminds Padme to take care of herself and take a step back. She’s no use to democracy burned out or dead. He also helps her come up with new solutions to problems.

4) Padme reminds Anakin to be calm and think at times where his emotions might rule. She also gives him excellent advice when he starts to lose perspective.

5) We never got to see it, but they would’ve been AMAZING parents. That I know. In fact, I think having kids would have brought them closer together and even combatted some of the problems they had as a couple. I would’ve loved to see it!

6) They both open up the others mind to new ways of handling situations. For example, when peace talks fail, sometimes you have to resort to “aggressive negotiations”. But also, when violence can be avoided, it should be to the best of your ability.

7) They both embody so much more to the other than simply a partner, wife or husband. Padme is Anakin’s family, someone who understands him and who he can always come home to. Anakin is a fighter for the very peace Padme is seeking, and a key part of her hope for a better future.

These are just a few of the reasons I love this ship! They’re very sweet and I’ll honestly never be over crying about them;;;;;;

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY! 

here’s to the freedom of making smut, angst, fluff etc fics and fanart for however much the heart desires, and being emotionally pained by your otps, freely.

{modern day au. inukag / inu gang. [inuyasha’s perspective]. 1017 words. drabble. on ff.net.}  


It’s already eight o’clock and Miroku isn’t even here yet. I swear if that boy isn’t here within the next five minutes I just might launch him into the crowd of people, and then go get some food because I am damn near starving.

It’s 8:07 pm, and that man is about three minutes away from being stuffed into one of those carnival games. Honestly, I’m forgetting why I ever agreed to this.

“Inuyasha!”

The pound on my window literally made me jump up and bust my head onto the roof. This just gave me some more fuel to beat up Miroku.

“What the hell man?” I huffed as I came out the car.

Miroku couldn’t wipe his weird smirk off his face, “Relax, don’t get your panties up in a bunch.”

“Yeah, Inuyasha. Calm down, I’m the reason why we’re late,” Sango assured as she walked up beside her man.

“I won’t take it out on you, Sango-” the couple shared a brief yet nauseating kiss- “Okay, what did I tell you guys about that?!”

Miroku put his finger to his chin, “Something… like…,” He pecked her again, “Do it more?”

The boy was testing me and as much as I wanted to inflict pain on him, the smell of barbecue, burgers, and all these different delicious scents just clogged up my mind.

“Whatever, Romeo,” I grabbed my snap back from my car. “Can we eat now? You left me starving.”

I started walking as soon as I got his go-ahead. I’m definitely not beat to playing third-wheel tonight, even though that’s how it goes everytime we hang out. Of course, I do feel better being out with them than just laying on my bed. I’m just tired and hungry, man. I need food in my system.  


“Alright,” I burped as I held my mildly bloated stomach. “Mission accomplished. Let’s go home now.”

Sango stuck out her arm against my body, I felt like I was ready to pop.

“Woah, woah woah!” She shouted at me, but it was hard to hear over everyone else’s damn mouths. “The fireworks show starts in a minute!” She panned over to Miroku, “We are watching it.”

I swear to you, right then and there, I saw flames burst out from Sango’s head and Miroku turned into frozen solid ice. I’ve only seen this happen a few times; those times being before these two were dating and Miroku would flirt with another girl in front of Sango. Wasn’t a pretty sight, and still isn’t a pretty sight.

“Y-You heard the lady,” Miroku shook as Sango gave her infamous devilish smile.

“Feh, alright alright,” I adjusted my hat and sat back down in the plastic chair, all squished and crowded. “I still hate you both.”

“We love you too!” they rejoiced in unison.

I cringed seeing the smug looks on the faces, but hey, they are family. And I guess I’ll deal with this - gross, sweaty, cramped - carnival event, just for their sakes. Besides, it is only us.

“Huh?…,” Sango spoke into her phone, covering her other ear. “Oh! Great! I’ll come get you!!”

“Was that-”

“Uh-huh! I’ll go get her!” She sprinted off into a hurry, and I couldn’t be any more confused.

I pushed myself towards Miroku over the table, “Um… Who was that?”

“Huh?” he had that stupid look on his face. “Oh, just Sango’s friend. Don’t worry, she’s really fun and cool,” he leaned in a bit. “And cute.”

“Why you…,” I reached out to choke him because he was not doing this to Sango. “You lecher, you’re with Sango ho-”

Miroku got a clean hit on my head, I’ll give it to him just this once, “Stupid, stop misunderstanding me!” He flicked me on the forehead, making me want to spit in his face, “I meant cute for you.”

The fireworks went off, and I couldn’t help but look. But not too long after, I realized what this guy said.

I quickly pulled away from his reach and sunk in my chair, “Wh-what? I ain’t looking for nobody.”

“Ah, yes of course,” he dusted off his navy blue shirt. “Prideful Inuyasha. Doesn’t-need-to-be-anyone’s Inuyasha. Lone-wolf Inuyasha.”

“Ya damn righ-”

“Hey guys!”

A girl then appeared before us. She had these chopped bangs that barely covered her eyes. Her hair was up in a some-what messy bun and her neck wrapped with a gold necklace. She wore a dark grey shirt that stopped right before her waist; her jeans were dark blue and had rips in the knees. I don’t know what came over me, but for some reason the place didn’t seem too cramped or gross at all.

“Come on!” Sango grabbed me and Miroku’s hands, which hurt by the way. “Let’s get closer!”

We shoved through the, what seemed to be, thousands of people all bunched up in one big space. The sky lit up with different colors and patterns and I’m not sure if it’s the fireworks or something, but my heart feels like it’s racing at about 100 miles per hour.

“What’s your name?” the girl shouted into my ear.

I pretended as if she blew out my eardrum and she held my arm, trying to comfort me. I know what I’m feeling now isn’t because of these fireworks because I don’t think they give you this electrifying feeling. I have no idea what’s happening to me, but I have to say something to her.

“Don’t worry,” I lowered to yell in her ear. “My ears are fine!”

She giggled and tugged on my arm, “Same here!” She screeched even louder in my ear that time.

“I’m Inuyasha, by the way,” I smiled as I put out my hand, anticipating to feel her touch.

“Kagome,” she smiled back and, I promise you, it lit up the entire place like Rockefeller’s christmas tree.

She took a breath and looked back up to the sky. Her eyes reflecting the glorious sparks, “Beautiful, isn’t it?”

And that’s when I realized, maybe fireworks aren’t something that only happens in the sky on the fourth of July.   

Mongolia 2156

The bitter cold stung her face as she reached the peak. The repeated gusts of wind from the drone landing behind her didn’t help. Once the great Eagle situated itself the pair looked over the steppe with sharp eyes. The various herds of goats, sheep, horses, camels, and yaks from the nomads looked like ants against the great snow covered peaks on the other end of the valley. Nothing out of the ordinary to report.

Temulin and her Eagle drone had the responsibility of watching over the Nomads and protecting the herds from bandits. With international relations crumbling in Central Asia the Border Defense Force played a pivotal role in maintaining the integrity of the Mongolian nation. A local to this part of the steppe, Temulin felt at home up the mountains. Settling in for the days watch the two of them continued their vigil, ever at the ready to protect the Mongol way of life.

So today in English Lit we were debating whether or not Nick in The Great Gatsby is gay/bisexual or not

And I was sitting there like I THOUGHT THIS ALL ALONG WHY IS THIS ONLY COMING UP NOW?

Even when we first started it I had this feeling that Nick was in love with Gatsby and the shipper within me wanted Nick and Gatsby to get together but of course that didn’t happen. I think that the way Nick describes Gatsby and his obsession with Gatsby can be interpreted as Nick having feelings for Gatsby, and of course there is the whole elevator/bedroom scene with Nick and Mr McKee which I along with many others believe means that they slept together. There’s also the theory that Jordan is a lesbian, and if you accept both that and the Nick is gay/bisexual theory, then their relationship can easily be seen as them covering for each other.
