If Juvia’s reaction to Gajeel’s death isn’t emphasized more than anyone else when the others find out I’m going to be very disappointed.

They’re supposed to be very special to one another, that’s what I’d like to believe. Their friendship is far more touching to me than any romantic relationship.

I’m having too much of high expectations but it would be even MORE emotional if, once Juvia finds out, we get flashbacks of Juvia and Gajeel when they first met in Phantom Lord? (Mashima’s especially good at writing flashbacks imo).

Mashima-sensei this is great angst potential please, I welcome you to destroy me with it.

I spend a lot of time missing you
but even more thinking about
what I could have done to make you stay.

Most days, I feel like more poison than girl,
more fury than fire, more sex than touch,
making out on your best friend’s couch
the second he went upstairs,
making out because it was the only thing
we could bear to do with our mouths.

Everyone tells me it isn’t my fault,
that leaving me on the cold hard pavement
was cowardly, and I can’t say I disagree,
but in the end, you didn’t destroy me.
We destroyed each other.

We’d flash our supernova hearts
disguised as teeth,
finding comfort in the explosion
because it didn’t make us bleed.
We did a lot of things I’m not proud of.

But we loved much harder
than I could have ever imagined
loving anybody ever, and I think
“fuck you” is just another way of saying
I wish we could have survived this.

—  This is just a fancy way of saying I miss you and I wish you were here and I wish you had stayed and I shouldn’t be thinking these things anymore but I am anyway / @scarredconversations

you know all those posts that are like “i love seeing my favorite character emotionally broken beyond hope of repair!!!! i want them to be DESTROYED and i love every second of it!!!!”

that. that does not fly with korra. that is not allowed. how dare they. how fucking dare they i cant believe this. as much as some part of me is just rubbing my hands with glee at the thought of what this is gonna bring in book 4 there’s a much bigger more protective more attached and invested and equally as destroyed part of me that is saying “dont you fucking touch my bb korra”

‘Endurance’:  The Nepal earthquake 1 year later — the struggle for recovery

On April 25, 2015 an earthquake of 7.8 magnitude shook Nepal. Almost 9,000 people died, more than 22,000 people suffered injuries and more than half a million houses were destroyed.For months aftershocks rocked the country. People occupied the streets and open spaces in fear. Chaos dominated daily life.

Photographer Omar Havana tells the story:

One night, after running all day, photographing, as aftershocks struck repeatedly, I finally fell asleep, hugging my cameras. Someone touched me. I immediately thought they might want to steal my cameras, but I turned to find an old woman, a woman who had lost everything, covering me with her quilt. She said, “We need to take care of you. You are telling the world the situation in our country. At that moment, I began “Endurance.”

At first the world was interested and the media published a river of pictures showing the destruction, but within weeks other stories took the headlines. Nepal vanished little by little from the news while the Nepali people continued their struggle, fighting as they did from day one, to help each other and rebuild out of the devastation. “Endurance” tells their story.

_____

Omar Havana is an award-winning photojournalist, represented by Getty Images, who was living in Kathmandu, Nepal, when the earthquake turned many parts of the country to rubble. His work from the immediate aftermath of the earthquake was published more than 1,000 times around the world. He followed the story long after media interest waned, taking trips around the country to document both the destruction and the recovery as a testimony to the endurance of the Nepali people.

Havana and FotoEvidence are collaborating on a book of Havana’s photographs, “Endurance,” with a foreword by film director Bernardo Bertolucci. The book, which is currently seeking funds via Kickstarter, focuses on the remarkable spirit with which the Nepali people responded to this devastating natural disaster.

Legends Crew + Twister:

  • Disclaimer: I have no good way to explain why this group of people would consent to a game of Twister together to begin with but let me have this ridiculous fluff. If you really need an explanation assume there was alcohol involved.
  • Stein excused himself on the basis that “I am 66 years old and I will die” which is pretty hard to argue with, so they put him on spinner duty
  • Snart also excused himself on the grounds of “I don’t want to touch any of you people” and “more booze for me”
  • Sara went into the game HUGELY cocky and overconfident, which obviously meant everyone was immediately united in their desire to destroy her
  • The game got sidetracked by a massive argument between those who insists it’s okay to have more than one foot/hand on a space (Kendra, Rip, Mick, Jax) and the purists who think that’s cheating (Ray, Sara, Stein).
    • Snart abstained from voting in favor of vodka.
  • Time Dad purposefully fell over the second round because he had his face in Kendra’s ass and his hand was going between Mick’s legs and honestly it just wasn’t worth it
  • Jax got stuck with his feet on opposite sides of the board so he had to sit there basically flinging his crotch in everyone’s face for ever. He was basically a nonstop stream of apologies the entire time
  • Ray has no sense of personal space to begin with so just imagine Twister with him. Do it. Imagine. 
  • Sara obviously kept purposefully trying to make things awkward by flirting with everyone to try and get them out. 
    • “Hey, Kendra, nice call on the crop top today. Looking good ;)” “Sara”
    • “Jax, can I use your butt as a pillow? That’s cool, right?” “oh my god please stop” 
    • “Ray not to make things weird but I could do my laundry on your abs” “Thank you?”
  • Seriously Ray wound up in some position to hike his shirt up and suddenly these ridiculous majestic abs on the body of Ray fucking Palmer are just out there for the world to see. It was blinding. There may have been an actual stunned silence.
    • Mick actually complimented him
    • Snart immediately drowned the rest of his drink and had some very angry conflicted gay feelings
      • (He wakes up hungover and finds a note he left himself that just says “Remove Raymond’s abs” and that’s how he knows it’s going to be a bad day) 
  • Mick isn’t super flexible but he can hold the same terrible positions for ever. Sara naturally tries to use this - “Damn, Mick, you have stamina” - and immediately suffers for it, as Mick looks Len dead in the eye and says, “Well, I’ve have a lot of practice.”
  • And Len. Fucking. Winks.
  • Which is the point when Sara’s jaw drops open and her hand slips and she hits the board yelling “I KNEW IT”
  • (Unfortunately she took Jax out with her, which Snart actually apologized for, because he’s a softy when he’s inebriated.) 
  • So it boiled down to Ray, Mick, and Kendra and ended when Ray accidentally stepped on Kendra’s hand, nearly breaking her finger and completely setting off her inner homicidal hawk goddess in a room full of tipsy legends 
  • It’s amazing how many game nights end like that tbh
  • TL;DR Legends + Twister is great and should definitely happen

This little camera-hogging monster is Itty Bit, The Worst Kitten In The World. My friends found her at no more than eight weeks old, wandering the alleys of Ogden, Utah, half-starved and nearly dead, and took her home without thinking about the consequences. They couldn’t take care of her and I wasn’t looking for a new cat, but we fell in love at first sight, and I couldn’t let her end up on the street twice. Took her home, patched her up, and she’s now the fattest, happiest tabby in town. She destroys everything she touches and torments all our other animals, but she’s the best friend I’ve ever had. I couldn’t ask for anything more.

Shaky hands, a shivering body, and heavy breaths, heartbeats are racing, the smile on my face is fading. Losing touch with reality. The more hurts I get, the more feelingless I turn out to be. Thought I needed an intimacy, to feel a body nearby, but it was more than that… I needed to let go of everything including myself, because I, myself was the one who destroyed me and threw myself into the abyss.

Yanno. I bet no one was more destroyed by Caesar’s death than Suzie.

As a fanbase, we always talk volumes about how Joseph felt and what he went through and his feelings, and even more scarcely, Lisa Lisa’s but i’ve yet to see anything touching on how Suzie felt about it. That doesn’t particularly surprise me, so let’s talk about it now.

i often wonder if a great Ragnarok has already occurred and that is why human industry has progressed so much, destroying the earth and humans populate more and more only to destroy each other, maybe one great effect of Ragnarok was the coming of Christianity. Ragnarok is not an apocalypse story its a story of death and renewal with Baldur’s return, but so far i don’t think we’ve seen a metaphorical return of Baldur, much of what i see is human kind acting like the giants of Muspel and destroying all they see and touch including each other.

i could wrap oceans across my heart, and drown in them to feel this warmth i’m missing. i could hold the storm / be the storm in my belly, and watch the world destroy us; i could watch the world rebuild itself, and breathe in the air it leaves for me. i could hold the sky in my eyes, and never touch it again- for now i am devoid of words; a void only so deep, as to hold all things that no one wants, and all the things i cannot have. i am lukewarm, and hurting more as each vein turns cold. i am searching for old wounds, and scratching them further; to tell you i am lost // to tell you i want more; the sun- that warmth // to tell you i want it all- to make sure i am not gone; show me love // pain, and let me feel it once more // tell me, is my numbness gone ? with everything that has died // with nothing born, tell me- let me be more bare than barren. let that be all. i am gone // am i not gone, as the wind reads us stories of when i was hungry // as my skin ached for more; i called for a touch, i ate for it- tell me, is that not how it is anymore? turn me around. turn me around; this mouth // i plead, with nothing to fill me // i plead, with all my softness gone, and shame lost- please save me.

anonymous asked:

I'm just amazed at the disconnect between the show, it's characters and the people who worked on it. I mean look if you were for Korrasami why did Mako and Korra get more screen time, why did they give each other loving looks and touches, and now claiming that remembrances wasn't romantic. This is why I fear for LOK comics in the future because at this rate the characters are going to be destroyed unless some new people take over

Mako and Korra probably got more screentime because the writers found their relationship more interesting… not that they can cop to that now.  =P

I don’t really want LoK comics either, to be honest.  I’m afraid they’d either mess up the great dynamic they developed between Korra and Kuvira by having Korra forget about Kuvira or completely ignore how Asami ought to feel about Kuvira in order to avoid conflict between Korra and Asami.  >_>;

Lola and Stéphane - Finale

What a perfect set up for S3!

Stéphane literally burst into the king’s private chambers asking for permission and help to find and save Lola, his precious jewel. Without ulterior motif! Everyone was convinced that John was dead, and he was genuinely surprised when he saw them both alive. Saving king’s son was gift from heavens because it is his shortcut for returning ‘back on top’. Two of them, working together, and putting their differences aside, in order to save Lola is like a dream came true (BROTP since - 'I don’t like you / I don’t care’)!

Yes, there wasn’t any kissing or touching, but that one look at the end said more than a thousand words! ‘He committed act that defy sense, and self-preservation!’  

After entire season of slow burn, I wasn’t expecting anything more than this. Every other couple was rushed, and destroyed within few episodes. Lola and Stéphane are the only constant on this show.

There is a promising future for them. They will have happy ending.

We Lorcisse shippers should be rewarded for being most patient, most loyal audience, during the entire season.
