If we make it through the night, if we make it out alive ..
You said that you can save me Don’t hope to ever find me And I fear I’m too far gone .Pray for the dead.
I am the ocean, I am the sea There is a world inside of me
OK but i can’t get over the transition from pre-chorus to chorus in the Sonic Forces theme song???? right before the chorus, there’s this really funky, half-time section which feels very SA2 and upbeat, then suddenly everything stops except the guitar and the chorus just BOOMS IN and suddenly it’s an action-packed war of the worlds where i will fight to my last dying breath??!!!?!!! holy shit
NU’EST CELEBRATING THEIR FIRST EVER WIN IN 6 YEARS ON M COUNTDOWN! SOMETIMES DREAMS DO COME TRUE!
Actually i think this is before Vs after lol
Anyway, thank you NU’EST so much, you have saved so many lives in your career. All we ever wanted to do was repay you back by making your dream of first win come true, and now we finally did it!
Thank you for teaching me that there is good in this world, and not everything is shitty. Before if its possible for people people like you, with pure hearts, with just immense talent, who have had to deal with such BS in their life, and refuse to give up, and finally make it in the end… then theres hope for everyone. There is good in the world, it would be been the biggest injustice in kpop if you never made it, but you did.
I am privileged to have been with the kindest, most hardworking and beautiful people in the world- and I’m glad more people get to be by your side now and call themselves ㄴㅇㅅㅌ
Out of everyone god chose you to rise after all this time, because of your own refusal to give up. And because you are special. I’ve known it so long, I’ve always known there was something about NU’EST that no one else will ever have.
Thank you so much, I’ll work even harder from now on and be with you forever.
I feel really weird for asking this but could you please pray for me. I’m surrounded by worry and pain and am kinda freaking out right now. I’m trying to trust in the Lord and calm down, but honestly right now I feel just like fighting and crying. Which probably isn’t the best response
If you don’t want to that’s fine but if you do end up praying for me I’d really appreciate it.
“Laney knew; she had always been meant for breaking, not building.” - end of Chapter 20, Beanstalk
This line whacked me in the face when I read it because of how much it contrasts with Jack, while also drawing a parallel between them. They are both destroyers, but only one of them accepts it, and they both come from cultures that emphasize building / creation. In the Forest, building is connected to life and safety from the Shadows; in the desert, it is a woman’s role to maintain camps and negotiate peace. This could probably be a proper post but my writing brain isn’t present so here, have a rambly compare/contrast list of traits connecting Laney Jones and Jack Farris.
Jack Farris - forest culture; building = life (but the trees might see it differently. Jack Farris sometimes feels like a tree.); his mother describes him as being of fire / he will destroy everything if he thinks it is for good, and this chills him; he is a fighter and a warrior, compelled to destroy in the hopes of building safety / protection / justice for others; when he geeks out over the Northern Rangers he specifically draws attention to the fact that they also build houses and provide food for struggling communities; he destroys but is not at peace with that part of himself; also he fulfills roles, he is literally Jack the Giant Slayer, but he also knows his place in his family; when Grey accuses Jack’s family of being bullies, he explains that this is simply his identity / place with them
Laney Jones - desert nomads; women are the peacekeepers, meant to construct tents and knit peace, and you see that in her smile which is “very sweet indeed”, in her strategy to give people what they want so she can get what she wants, a strategy that also allows her to get close enough to destroy anything that thinks it can control her; her smile hides a sharp tongue and a bullet aimed wherever will hurt you most; this entire world is in need of a strong dose of feminism and Laney Jones will destroy every conception you want to force on her; she is of fire and she embraces this; she will rip the very barrier between worlds, will burn every box you try to put her in, because she is the choices she makes for herself and nothing else
The American Revolutionary War began with a series of military
engagements between the towns of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775. This
became known as the “Shot Heard ‘round the World” and marks the outbreak
of armed conflict between Great Britain and the American colonies.
On April 18th, Gage was ordered to send his army to Concord to
destroy a stash of Militia military supplies (including weapons and gunpowder). Upon hearing of these orders and believing that the objective was the
capture of Samuel Adams and John Hancock, Doctor Joseph Warren sent William
Dawes and Paul Revere to warn them.
After making sure Adams and Hancock were safely hidden and
protected, it was agreed that they would continue to Concord and make sure the
supplies were safe. So Dawes, Revere and several other riders rode out to
spread word and raise the militias. On the way, Dawes and Revere came across
Samuel Prescott who was on his way home to Concord and decided to join them men
in alerting the colonists. The three of them made it halfway to Concord when
they were detained by British patrol. Dawes and Revere were captured (later
released to make their way back to Lexington) but Prescott got away and
continued on to Concord.
The British Army’s advanced guard, under Pitcairn, were met at
Lexington by the Lexington militiamen on April 19, 1775. Amongst a great deal
of confusion and yelling a shot rang out as the two armies met. Nobody knew then,
nor knows today, who fired but that shot was to be the first shot of the
American Revolution. This is what is now known as the “Shot Heard ‘round the World”.
The Lexington militiamen were defeated and the British
troops moved forward towards Concord. The militiamen at
Concord were ready for the British Army thanks to the raised alarm and managed
to encircle the regulars who were advancing on Concord. After numerous casualties, the British commander ordered his troops to return to Boston. The British regulars, having been routed by the militiamen, began their march back to Lexington and Boston.
their return march, they were faced with several groups of militiamen who
caused a great deal of damage to their troops. The
total number of losses were roughly 300 British and 100 Americans. The battles of
Lexington and Concord roused New Englanders to begin the Siege of Boston which resulted
in the British evacuation by March 1776 and thus beginning the American War for Independence.
“Heard you wanted to see Damen/Laurent from the storybook! Always liked breath-art’s LOTR stained glass paintings which is how I imagined Isander’s art :)”
This is… beautiful????? I know this has been sitting in my inbox for a day or so but I needed to formulate something to say about it because it is STUNNING and I will never be over this. Ever. I am obsessed with this piece of art, I’m not even kidding.
