the protection plan

anonymous asked:

do you think that Zeref knows that Natsu has already transformed into end?

I’m not sure. He might have been able to sense the change in Natsu’s magic and he has the book (I don’t know if that would change with Natsu's transformation or use of curse power). What Zeref wouldn’t know is what triggered the change. It could be that he could have seen Natsu and Grays fight and assumed Gray triggered it? I don’t think this will be as plain sailing as Natsu hopes, no matter what Natsu is tied to the book. Whatever the outcome may be, there is certainly going to be some interesting revelations. 

I don’t want Zeref to be defeated this arc, he is supposed to have godly levels of power. This war was about him messing with Natsu. Think about it, if Zeref’s main goal was truly world destruction, then surely he would have done it years ago when FT was still under the tenroujima protection spell. Whatever his plan is that he told Gray, a part of that plan involves Natsu using his demon powers. It’s the only reason why Zeref let Happy take Natsu away, why he’s obsessed with trying to break Natsu, he wants him at full power. He knows Natsu’s emotional rage is what makes him access his dormant powers. 

This is why I think Lucy is in danger. Although Natsu knows she can handle herself, he doesn’t view her in the same way he see’s Gray and Erza. If any harm comes to Lucy, it flips that switch in him very quickly. Lucy is the only one he doesn’t challenge to fights constantly (other than wendy), it’s because he hates to see her harmed in any way. 

Zeref’s a smart guy and he’ll figure this out quickly. Natsu’s ‘nakama pissed’ right now, but ‘lucy’s hurt’ pissed is another level. No one hurts waifu is the top level of pissed in FT in my opinion, compare the faces in those scenes with other angry scenes. It’s just not the same lol 

today I had my political science class

and it was awful. Trump supporters were everywhere - people who weren’t even registered to the class came in to gloat.

I raised my hand and said I was more terrified of Trump supporters than I was of the man himself, because they want people like me (queer) dead - and was immediately shouted down with “I don’t hate gay people!” and “not all supporters are racist/misogynistic/homophobic/etc” and I wasn’t able to even finish what I was saying.

But I’ll say it now: even if you yourself are not any of those awful things, when you cast your vote for him, you enabled thousands of people to be open and PROUD about their bigotry.

If you’re a Trump supporter and you REALLY aren’t bigoted? I expect you to be out in the protests and the rallies and protecting the people you say you don’t hate. I want you rallying in front of LGBT+ safe spaces and keeping out everyone who wants to harm them. I want you speaking up for women, POC, and Muslims when you see them being harassed. I want you volunteering at planned parenthood. I want you to defend the disabled and chronically ill to your last breath. I want you supporting Jewish communities. I want you chanting “Black lives matter” in the streets. I want you calling out people who are saying the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic things you say you’re not.

You’re not bigoted? Prove it.

Otherwise, your silence is violence. Against every minority in the US.

7 Things You Can Do to Help Planned Parenthood and the Communities We Serve


What can you do right now for Planned Parenthood? Try these 7 things.


1. Donate to Planned Parenthood

The work to protect Planned Parenthood patients’ access to care starts now. Your support is more important than ever.

Donate to support Planned Parenthood health centers: Our health centers are open, and they’re continuing to deliver vital reproductive health care — like birth control, cancer screenings, and STD testing and treatment.

2. Speak Out Against Hate

Planned Parenthood’s patients are from all walks of life. They are immigrants, Muslim, Black, Latinx, and LGBTQ — and they all deserve access to health care in a safe and welcoming place.

Wherever you are (online or IRL), declare your rejection of hate and your solidarity with these communities. Show that you believe every single person is deserving of respect, dignity, and equal rights under the law.

You don’t have to speak out alone. There are several groups supporting solidarity with intersecting communities:

  • American Civil Liberties Union: Help the ACLU fight unconstitutional policies.
  • Color of Change: Join the nation’s largest online racial justice organization.
  • Human Rights Campaign: Help LGBTQ people get treated equally, everywhere.
  • National Disability Rights Network: Advocate for people with disabilities.
  • Our100.org: Take a stand with 100 women of color leaders.
  • ShowingUpForRacialJustice.org: Now is the moment for white people to be bold and join the movement for racial justice.
  • Southern Poverty Law Center: Make the promises of the Civil Rights Movement a reality for all.
  • Transgender Law Center: Ensure all can live safe, authentic lives regardless of gender identity or expression.
  • Trust Black Women: Report anti-abortion activity in the Black community to SisterSong and a Trust Black Women partner.
  • United We Dream: Fight for relief and fair treatment for all undocumented immigrants.

3. Volunteer for Planned Parenthood

Our health center doors are open. Like always, every person can get health care at Planned Parenthood, no matter what.

You can support Planned Parenthood by making your next reproductive health care appointment at your local Planned Parenthood health center. Need birth control? A well-woman exam? STD tests? We can help you with that and more. Some Planned Parenthood health centers also provide hormone replacement therapy for trans patients.

5. Tweet Your Defiance With #WeWontGoBack

Use social media to reject hate and refuse to let the next president roll back the rights we’ve fought so hard to secure.

Tweet your defiance along with the hashtag #WeWontGoBack.

6. Share Cecile Richard’s Message of Strength

Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards shared a message of resilience earlier this week. Read it here — it’s sure to give you strength.

7. Sign Up for Email & Texts

Join our email network to stay on top of the issues. Our email alerts will also help you learn how to get involved with campaigns that advance and protect reproductive health.

Want text alerts? Text “StandwithPP” to 69866 to join our Planned Parenthood mobile action network. Standard data and text rates may apply. You can text STOP to quit at anytime.


Of course, these are just a few things you can do. The opportunities to get involved and fight back don’t end here. For 100 years, Planned Parenthood has faced challenges and attacks from people opposed to our mission to provide expert sexual and reproductive health care, no matter what. Through every attack, we’ve come out stronger. We’re going to use that strength to lead in the coming days, months, and years — for the patients who rely on us and for our allies across progressive movements.

Honestly if you’re not watching this debate you might want to turn it on. Trump is talking so fast I’m starting to suspect he might be on something, he screamed at Anderson Cooper for not having brought up a topic he just brought up, he threatened to have Hillary Clinton arrested, and he’s refusing to apologize for his groping comments, he’s still pretending he was against the war in Iraq, and he just told a Muslim woman that his plan to protect Muslims from Islamophobia was to push Islam as the problem, it’s a trainwreck

‘It’s 3.23 in the morning and I’m awake, because my great-great-grandchildren won’t let me sleep.
My great-great-grandchildren ask me in dreams
“What did you do while the Planet was plundered?
What did you do when the Earth was unravelling?
Surely you did *something* when the Seasons started failing?
As the mammals, reptiles, birds were all dying?
Did you fill the streets with protest when Democracy was stolen?
What did you *do* once you knew?”

Donald Trump will keep Obama’s LGBTQ protections, no plans for executive order

  • In a statement to the New York Times, the Trump administration said the president will leave Obama’s 2014 executive order on federal protections for LGBTQ workers intact. 
  • Trump’s statement came on the heels of rampant speculation that an executive order rescinding these protections was forthcoming.
  • In his statement, the administration continued to cast Trump as a paragon of LGBTQ allyship. Read more

Crocodile trying to kill Luffy at Alabasta vs. Crocodile saving Luffy at Marineford

i love how Crocodile’s relationship with Luffy changes so much between Alabasta & Marineford. Crocodile’s plans were all ruined by Luffy, but Croc tries so hard to save Luffy during the war (and even saves Ace!). Crocodile has a lot of sides to him, and I do believe that he likes and respects Luffy on some level.

PSA to potential customers: PLEASE don't interrupt me when I'm telling you about our store protection/warranty plan. I make sure to make it as brief as possible, it takes me about 5 seconds to tell you what I need to tell you, and interrupting me to say "no" just comes across as rude. I don't mind if you don't want the warranty. It's mandatory for me to mention it and I wish people would just be so kind as to wait the few seconds for me to finish asking the question before they decline.

Mexico Plans to Catch, Protect Last Few Vaquita Porpoises

It has been decided. Some of the last remaining vaquitas are going to be captured in the spring and held in captivity.

The International Committee for the Recovery of the Vaquita has decided to put together an international team to capture and relocate a few porpoises to netted, secure areas. It is incredibly risky. If any of them die during the capture process (a very likely possibility) then it could be the final nail in the coffin for the species, especially if breeding females are killed.

Vaquitas have never been held in captivity. This is the last ditch effort to save the species.

Obama's agencies push flurry of 'midnight' actions
But in Congress, Republicans are warning them to stop and are preparing to repeal those regulations en masse. By BOB KING and NICK JULIANO

Federal agencies are rushing out a final volley of executive actions in the last two months of Barack Obama’s presidency, despite warnings from Republicans in Congress and the reality that Donald Trump will have the power to erase much of their handiwork after Jan. 20.

Regulations on commodities speculation, air pollution from the oil industry, doctors’ Medicare drug payments and high-skilled immigrant workers are among the rules moving through the pipeline as Obama’s administration grasps at one last chance to cement his legacy. So are regulations tightening states’ oversight of online colleges and protecting funding for Planned Parenthood.

Also moving ahead are negotiations on an investment treaty with China and decisions by the Education Department on whether to offer debt relief to students at defunct for-profit colleges. The Department of Transportation may also go ahead with a ban on cellphone calls on commercial flights and a rule requiring most freight trains have at least two crew members on duty.

Some agencies are pulling back, fearful that Trump and the GOP-led Congress will use a seldom-invoked legislative tool to permanently wipe out their 11th-hour regulations. For example, the Interior Department has failed to release a long-awaited rule to protect streams from coal mining pollution — and indications are it might never issue it.

But other agencies have signaled full steam ahead despite the threat of Republicans consigning their work to oblivion, in a dynamic that will be crucial to deciding how much of Obama’s legacy survives the ascendant Trump era.

“As I’ve mentioned to you before, we’re running — not walking — through the finish line of President Obama’s presidency,” Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy wrote agency employees the day after the Nov. 8 election. “Thank you for taking that run with me. I’m looking forward to all the progress that still lies ahead.”
