this is one reason to hate the south

bts could’ve disbanded but they chose to stick with us and their talent for music despite being indebt and coming from a very small company.

they show us that reality is difficult and they dont try to sugar coat things

they’re upfront and honest. the least we can do is ensure their safety by avoiding confrontation.

they’re truly one-of-a-kind and we’re all lucky of having such wonderful, beautiful souls in our lives that have used their talents for good.

unfortunately, there is always something in the way of people’s success and it’s always caused by jealousy.

hate as an artist is inevitable especially when you’re in such a strict society like South Korea. Best we can do is support e/o, and be respectful of different opinions. it can affect bts’ reputation, and also the fandom’s if we act ignorant and childish.

so please make reasonable claims especially in a situation like this where we have to remain as unbiased and honest as possible for our opinion to be of value.

Thank you so much,

And I love y'all~

Hundreds and hundreds of small boats pulled by countless pickups and SUVs from across the South are headed for Houston. Almost all of them driven by men. They’re using their own property, sacrificing their own time, spending their own money, and risking their own lives for one reason: to help total strangers in desperate need.
Most of them are by themselves. Most are dressed like the redneck duck hunters and bass fisherman they are. Many are veterans. Most are wearing well-used gimme-hats, t-shirts, and jeans; and there’s a preponderance of camo. Most are probably gun owners, and most probably voted for Trump.
These are the people the Left loves to hate, the ones Maddow mocks. The ones Maher and Olbermann just *know* they’re so much better than.
These are The Quiet Ones. They don’t wear masks and tear down statues. They don’t, as a rule, march and demonstrate. And most have probably never been in a Whole Foods.
But they’ll spend the next several days wading in cold, dirty water; dodging gators and water moccasins and fire ants; eating whatever meager rations are available; and sleeping wherever they can in dirty, damp clothes. Their reward is the tears and the hugs and the smiles from the terrified people they help. They’ll deliver one boatload, and then go back for more.
When disaster strikes, it’s what men do. Real men. Heroic men. American men. And then they’ll knock back a few shots, or a few beers with like-minded men they’ve never met before, and talk about fish, or ten-point bucks, or the benefits of hollow-point ammo, or their F-150.
And the next time they hear someone talk about “the patriarchy”, or “male privilege”, they’ll snort, turn off the TV and go to bed.
In the meantime, they’ll likely be up again before dawn. To do it again. Until the helpless are rescued. And the work’s done.
They’re unlikely to be reimbursed. There won’t be medals. They won’t care. They’re heroes. And it’s what heroes do.

as a latinx/latine…do you ever think about those countries that are completly alone? like fucking usa, i mean they have a relationship with canada i guess??…europe is too far away (also, europe has their own squad)….and well, let’s not talk about their relationship with México. As a latinx, for me is impossible to imagine being so alone. I mean, i’m from Argentina, that’s literally the Slytherin of Latinoamerica but even then….that means always fighting with Uruguay like siblings (’you’re so small…’ ‘shut up argentina!! i’m a grown up!!’ ‘aaww’ / ‘that WAS MINE, u bitch!!!’ ‘shut up Uruguay, that was mine first!!’ we are the older ones because we are meaner and they hate us, but don’t you dare to touch thEM!!) or talking/fighting about fútbol with Brasil but singning the same songs even when our languages are different, literally just talking shit about/with Chile (it’s complicated), saying ‘hey. hi. you’re cool’ to @Perú without any fucking reason…and so many other things. Like, i know that i can go anywhere in latinoamerica and i’m going to find people with the same traditions, or the same way to be raised, or the same fucking music that i grown up with!! (the music!! like, im from the south of latinoamerica but i know that if someone puts some latin song, me and mexicanos or people del Caribe would be like “HEEEEY!!!”) even if we have our differences, we will share our culture because we are fucking proud of it: that could mean a cute ‘hey! you want some of our traditional food??’ or just being dicks like ‘…you know…you used that word all day talking about that innocent thing, but in here it really means penis so lmao”.

In hard times, we hold each other. Even if the world is looking to other way, everyone in latinoamerica is looking at Venezuela right know, just fucking worried about them. We know the pain of dictatorships, of our people, of the forced silence. Seeing Venezolanos, crying and screaming for their rights, for food, for justice, hits in the hearth of every latinx/e. We are with you, Venezuela, con tu gente. Lloramos contigo tus fallecidos, tanto ustedes como nosotros vamos a seguir pidiendo justicia por ellos y por muchos más. And let’s not forget about Cuba, please. Even when is about natural disasters: we remember your people, Perú. We remember your people, Colombia.

Yes, we are not perfect, we can be xenofobos/racistas/etc. Let’s don’t deny that. But….we also have something so beautiful and we have to appreciate that.

If you want something being remembered about your latin country (music, foods, traditions, history, etc) please share them in this post!!

Prompt: Jungkook and Jimin are spending their first Christmas together as mates. Thinking that they would have the whole day to themselves, Jungkook and Jimin are surprised when the boys drop by their apartment. Though Jimin is welcoming, Jungkook is disgruntled that he can’t spend any time alone with Jimin, and he does all he can to get some quality time with him whilst the boys are around.

The first time Jimin meets a gaunt, small beta boy named Jungkook in the examination room of Namjoon’s lab, he can’t seem to take his eyes off him. The second time he sees Jungkook it’s because he refuses to eat without him. The third time they meet, Jungkook is more teeth and claws than Jimin can handle.

The day before Jimin’s birthday, Jungkook strikes up a deal with his boyfriend. If he wins, he’ll be given free rein of the alpha himself, if he loses, well, he doesn’t really lose much.

Jimin has to order an alpha online. It’s required that every unmated omega order an alpha during their heat so nothing dangerous will happen to them. Jimin honestly doesn’t want one but he’s turning 20 and his heat is scheduled to come in a couple weeks and there’s nothing he can do. When his alpha gets there, Jimin doesn’t know if he can handle him.

Not cool. Not cool at all.

corvonildo  asked:

Why Victarion is so awesome?

Heh, I know, right? On paper, Victarion Greyjoy seems like the dullest character imaginable: unchanging, undramatic, unreflective, and deeply unpleasant. Yet I love his POV chapters and have never run short of things to say about him. I think Victarion’s characterization is a triumph of tone and context.

Tonally, GRRM’s masterstroke was framing Vic’s blood-soaked circlin’ of the abyss as an extremely grim joke, granting us some measure of catharsis while being trapped in this particular head by encouraging us to laugh at him. The contrast between Vic’s puffed-up self-conception and his transparent inability to understand when he’s being manipulated makes me chuckle as I wince. This black-comedy gambit works in large part because it’s rooted in the Iron Captain’s dynamics with much smarter people. Both Euron in AFFC and Moqorro in ADWD realize they’ve got a useful tool on their hands, and the primary difficulty they face in wrapping Vic around their respective li'l fingers is refraining from bursting into laughter. The monkeys have no such compunctions, and their cackles are meant to cue our own. This stooge thinks he’s a supervillain! “Blind to the tentacles,” indeed.

As for the context, the Crow’s Eye and the Black Flame are able to so effortlessly hack into Vic’s psyche in part because they’ve got genuine metaphysical heft in their corner, their third eyes wide open, whereas he’s clinging to a racist revanchist mythos about how stealing shit makes you awesome. In this way, Vic becomes a vessel for ideological diagnosis; he is an avatar of the Old Way, and the Old Way cannot protect him from wizards. It can’t protect him from anything: the injury that nearly kills him is self-inflicted, as the colossal fool grabbed his enemy’s sword in his fist for no reason beyond wanting to be the most pirate-y of all the pirates. He thinks it’s badass, but it’s pathetic. To zoom out from the micro to the macro, this ideology has left the Iron Islands an impoverished backwater that regularly gets its collective ass kicked by the mainland whenever the latter gets sick of being raided. Both of Balon’s wars were complete wastes, a stupid and selfish ruination inflicted in the name of a cultural self-conception that is not only fanatically hateful and violent, but utterly unmoored from material reality and the lived lives of the Ironborn.

That’s one of the main reasons Euron won the kingsmoot, and it’s the reason Victarion lost it: underneath the south-shall-rise-again bluster, most of the captains and kings know by now that “all you’ll get from me is more of what you got from Balon” simply is not enough. The “mighty pillars” are falling. The myth is dissolving. All of Westeros is dying…

And to zoom back into the micro, that collective decay and ennui is given individual form in Vic’s inner monologue. What makes him work as a character, and especially as a POV character, is that he is deeply unhappy. He does not know why. He keeps trying to fill the hole inside with rape and murder and telling himself he’s finally pulled one over on Euron (as if), never wondering if it’s his lifestyle and ideology that are making him unhappy. Victarion is bored because being a villain is boring. Spending your days hitting people from behind with folding chairs and then taking their stuff is not only violent and cruel, it’s shallow and unsatisfying. It doesn’t even work for him. Euron represents another flavor of evil altogether: he just wants to ride to Valhalla on a sea of screaming souls, and this makes him perfectly content. But Victarion believes in something, and that something has failed him, and he doesn’t know what to do about it. I think he’s going to die before he learns.

Unknown Jamael’s star role in Hamilton: 25-year-old cast in West End version of hit musical (Daily Mail):

Jamael Westman — a 25-year-old actor from Brixton, South London, fresh out of drama school — has won the coveted title role in the eagerly awaited London version of smash-hit musical Hamilton.

Westman, a Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts graduate (and fully trained football coach) won the role in President Obama’s favourite show after five auditions, including one in front of Hamilton’s creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, the show’s director Thomas Kail, music director Alex Lacamoire and producers Jeffrey Seller and Cameron Mackintosh.

The part of Alexander Hamilton is one of the landmark theatrical roles of the 21st century — and a towering achievement for the 6ft 4in actor who graduated from RADA only last year.

But Westman is an impressive character. He has deep feelings about what it means to be a black man in the UK. He’s confident. He told me that if he doesn’t know something, he’ll work at it until he masters it — whether it be playing a musical instrument, learning a role or sussing out how to play every position on a football team (even goalkeeper, which he hates).

[…]

He sang at the local Roman Catholic Church and Miles Davis, Marshall Mathers and Bob Marley were all part of the eclectic mix of music playing at home in South London, where he was raised by his Irish-born mother — a lecturer in sociology at Goldsmiths College — and his Jamaican-born football coach father.

Rapping, he declared, ‘is in my bones’. Which is one of the reasons he won the role.

Miranda told me that he was lucky enough to catch Jamael at a ‘call back’ in London at Cameron Mackintosh’s office, and he was bowled over by the countertenor. ‘He was just fantastic, and versatile, and all those things Hamilton needs to be,’ he said. ‘You know: “Young, scrappy and hungry.”’ (That’s a line, in case you’re wondering, from one of Hamilton’s best-known songs, My Shot.)

In fact, during my interview with Jamael, he used the very same line to describe himself.

Both Miranda and Mackintosh, in separate conversations in London and New York, observed that Jamael had the skills to make it seem as though each performance was being given for the first time.

‘Well, that’s the whole ball game, isn’t it?’ Lin-Manuel said. ‘To make it feel as though it’s happening for the first time on stage at night.’ He added that he’s seen a lot of people audition, both in the U.S. and UK, for the role that he created.

‘So when you know you’ve got it, you’ve got it — and I know we’ve really got it here, with Jamael.’

Miranda told me that when he was writing the concept album for Hamilton, he had hip-hop and R&B voices in mind.

‘I wasn’t thinking about what colour the people were. I was thinking: “Who’s the best rapper to embody Thomas Jefferson? Or Alexander Hamilton?”

‘I was having fun with the idea of matching rappers with these people,’ he said, adding that when the director, Thomas Kail, was developing the stage show, he decided to elevate that idea of diversity to a principle for the casting of the show.

‘When you take the people out of the stuff of legend, and destroy the statue version, it actually makes them more accessible,’ he said.

The Latin-American, Asian and Afro-Caribbean faces in his show mirror society.

That colour-blind idea resonates with Jamael, too. He said that the opportunity to work and play with a company ‘made up of people of colour, without the subject matter having anything to do with race’ would have a positive impact not only on him, but the whole ensemble — and the audience, too.

‘A story that traditionally would have been told by an all-white cast is being given a new lease of life, superseding the deluded expectations of prejudice.’

Jamael said he gets his confidence and strength from his mother. ‘Her people — my grandmother — are from Coose in County Galway; and I heard her stories, and the stories of my other grandparents.

‘Some came here from Ireland and Jamaica in the Fifties, and having heard their stories gave me an appreciation of their struggles. It’s what’s bought me to this place … to this very room where it happens,’ he said, a reference to another famous line in Hamilton.

You had signed up for Strucker’s experiments as soon as your friends had. Wanda and Pietro were all you had left. No family was waiting for you in Sokovia; you had no ties to the hell driven town. Only the two twins, you had grown up with them, fought beside them at every protest. You had your mind and body ripped open for him. You let the hydra scientist pull you apart and spit you back out again all for him. Because you couldn’t lose him, you couldn’t loose the man you loved no matter what.

Tell me I'm not the only one who hates Chennai Express. On top of all the offensive stuff they've used Kerala aesthetics all over a movie set in Tamilnadu. South India is just one big stereotype to bollywood.

You and 95% of all South Indians, my friend- myself included. The internalised racism is strong in Rohit Shi/etty I assure you. As far as Bollywood is concerned everything below the border of Maharashtra is just one big cultural clump. I guess that’s part of the reason (another being the ridiculing of the culture of said clump) as to why so many South Indians seem dissatisfied with mainstream Bollywood nowadays- again, myself included. But we’ll just keep powering on regardless of what they think of us. 

anonymous asked:

Honestly how would you react if sm announced Kaisoo is real? (Sorry if you got asked this already ;-;)

I’ve not been, so thank you for this :)

And to answer your question, I don’t know..

My first reaction would probably be to be happy, ecstatic even, but that’s from my point of view, being here in Europe, where things go differently with gay couples.. You see, even if it’s not really fully accepted yet, we have openly gay people, famous people who live their lives the best way they can, and the oppression on them is not that high (it’s still work in progress for the whole world, unfortunately). 

Like for example, there are a lot of countries that have allowed gay marriages, and are okay with LGBT people, but SK is different on that one. Just see T.O.P example from couple of days before - he was caught smoking marijuana a couple of months ago, and he was being withstand from his service in military until investigation is done. And where I’m from, marijuana is still illegal but you can buy it pretty easily and you don’t get investigation and jail time if you get caught. Hell, even I smoke it occasionally. 

What I’m saying is that some things that are normal to me (I have gay friends, and it’s not a big deal for me to see gay couples and to support them, be vocal on that one and don’t get hated for supporting LGBT couples, marriage and parades - even I kissed some of my girl friends) it’s different when it comes to South Korea.

And that frightens me, when it comes to any gay idol out there. Just think about it - not feeling like yourself to the fullest, cause the industry is forcing you to practically conceal a part - a massive part - of yourself, just because people are not used to it, and they don’t accept it for whatever reason they think it’s good and enough to hate (that’s like a softest way of reasoning those people, since i don’t get how anybody could have anything against LGBT community, and be homophobe, tbh). 

So to finally answer your question, even if Kaisoo being outed (and proven to be together, cause us shippers could only say and know much) it would be like a big happiness for me. Because I see something great within them two, and even it’s just a friendship, I still love it, and I want them to be happy. But also, I’m scared of what their relationship could mean for them, for the group, and for their fans. 

Because let’s face it - some fans could get angry with Kyungsoo for not showing his tummy out in the open, and whitewash Nini’s skin and could you imaging what would it happen if they turned out to be gay/bi/just in love with each other/with some other male/or even having girlfriends out in the open for everyone to see.

I would be so happy for them if it ever came to SM or them confirming that what they have is love, because it takes a great courage to say it out loud, and to stand proud for what you are. And I could only wish that they don’t get hated for it (and that they stop being hated for so many things already) because love is love. It doesn’t see gender, color, weight, height, health, status etc… And I think there’s still hope :)

~Resquested~

Tony makes his way through the kitchen.  Pouring himself some coffee and leaning against the kitchen table across from Bucky who was jotting down in his little journal. Tony thought now would be the most desirable opportunity to annoy him.

“Steve tells me you are obsessing over a young woman.”

“What?…I wouldn’t describe it as ‘obsessing’, it’s more of a crush,” Bucky said

“Really? Steve further let slip you have photos of her in your little journal with the caption saying ‘future wife’ is that the journal?” Tony asked pointing at the journal in Bucky’s hands.

Bucky was blushing right now. “Maybe….” Bucky said as he closed his notebook, trying to hide it with his metal arm. “Okay, maybe I’m a  little obsessed, but who could blame me. She’s just so smart and sexy,” he says.

“Well, well, well Bucky Barnes is in love. She must be one heck of a woman if you are so head over heals for her”

“Oh, she is. I’m lucky enough to even know her. She helps me out of my deepest, darkest moments, she makes me believe I’m worth something….I think I love her I know I defiantly want to be with her, Tony” Bucky said.

“Tell me Barnes, Who is this girl you are crushing on? Is it someone from the team? Is it Natasha? Or is it Wanda?” Tony asked, a little more interested.

It’s is someone on the team, but it’s not Natasha. or Wanda" Bucky said.

“Then who is it?”

“(Y/n)”

Tony bout choked on his coffee

“(Y/n)? As in (Y/n) (L/n)?” Tony asked again

“Yeah, Why?”

“THAT’S MY 21-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER, ASS HAT!!!” Tony yelled.

Bucky looked at Tony in shock, realizing that he admitted to that he has fillings for you, his daughter.

“I didn’t know (Y/n) is your daughter. I don’t think anybody knew” Bucky said.

“Barnes, you and the rest of the Avengers have been living at my house for the past year. You have seen dozens of family pictures of me with Peper and (Y/n). That had to say something. Or when we get ready to go on missions.  I always have (Y/n) stay behind and handle the technical stuff because I do not want her out on the field where she is in harm’s way.” Tony said, trying to calm down.

“You two don’t have the same last name” Bucky Stated

“We have the same last name, she prefers to use her mother’s maiden name over mine because it seems more genuine, ”

Bucky was examining his surroundings, finding a way to get away from the furious Tony Stark.

“Is that the journal with the photographs of (Y/n)?” Tony asked glancing at the small journal under Bucky’s’ metal arm.

Bucky hesitated for the moment before nodding his head.

“Give me it to me, Barnes,” Tony said as he held out his hand.

Bucky hesitated again.

Tony, (not having any more patience) grabs the book from Bucky and began flipping through the pages. He saw the pictures of you and they weren’t creepy photos either (like you in your underwear or anything like it) they were Facebook photos, photos from when you made the news for being an honor student at MIT etc. Bucky notices the angry expressions on Tony’s face and began to slip from his seat.

“Tony, I-”

“I suggest you find somewhere to hide Barnes, or else you might end up back in that cryogenic chamber and it went missing somewhere in the South America,” Tony Said as he had one hand on a stun gun and the other in his Iron Man armor aiming at Bucky.

Bucky nodded as quickly left the kitchen, disappointed in finding out that Tony Stark is your father and giving another reason to hate Bucky, the first reason he being a particular cause for the death of his parents.

exo know for a fact that they have young and impressionable fans, and for them to talk negatively or joke about skin colour is ridiculous. they know the impact they have and are definitely aware of how their words could influence someone into feeling insecure or hating their appearance. as celebrities, they should use their platform to spread positivety and not mock something that cant be helped

What the 2P’s think of their First Players

Modern AU!

2P! Italy: “Put that thing back where it came from or so help me-” He thinks his counterpart is intolerably annoying to the point that he shuts off his existence.

2P! Germany: “You have no idea how much i love that fucker. Can’t say he feels the same about me, though ahahaha.” this is Lutz we’re talkin’ about. He loves almost everybody.

2P! Japan: “We get along for the most part. He’s tolerable.” He and Kiku get along pretty well due to their similar interests. Although when they’e with the rest of the Axis, they merely acknowledge each other’s presence.

2P! Romano: “Lovi~! His anger is just adorable isn’t it? I wish he’s control is language, though, tsk tsk tsk. no wonder the ragazzo hasn’t found someone yet~. He treats his counterpart *similarly* the way he treats his brother.

2P! Prussia: “Ah… Gilbert is pretty cool. i-i’ve always admired his confidence.” He sees Gilbert as an inspiration when it comes to confidence and speaking up since he clearly lacks those. Gilbert gives him advice at times.

2P! Austria: “Too stuck up. That prissy diva always thinks his taste in music is better than yours truly~. Although, I do ency his ability in playing instruments.” He doesn’t particularly care about his counterpart. Whenever they’re around each other they usually argue or banter due to clashing tastes.

2P1 America: “Fuck no.” The only thing these to share is their mutual hate for each other. 

2P! Emgland: “The ol’ chap is rather grumpy, yes~? Other than that, I love Artie with all my heart! Well… The lad could work on ‘cooking’. I tried to teach him… Tried.” He always tried to cheer up Arthur when he notices he’s in a foul mood. Keyword: tries. 

2P! France: “I stay away from that piece of French shit at all costs.” Every time the flamboyant Frenchman is in Francois’ line pf sight, he IMMEDIATELY leaves. He couldn’t stand him due to obvious reasons.

2P! Russia: “He gets too violent at times. We do have one thing in common: we’re too intimidating for people to approach.” He doesn’t exactly like or dislike his counterpart. Since Ion is a pacifist, he doesn’t meet eye to eye with Ivan that much.

2P! China: “The old man is absolutely adorable especially when i annoy him. His anger is probably one of the cutest things!” They have a love-hate relationship. Well, not exactly hate. 

2P! South Korea: “Guy needs to fucking chill.” He thinks his counterpart evades too much personal space. Too much. They only agree with one thing: Kpop.

Maybe (Jung Jaehyun x Reader)

A/N: THIS IS MESSY AF BUT THE IDEA WON’T STOP HUNTING ME SO HERE YA GUYS GO.

“Maybe if I was stronger…”

Jaehyun couldn’t believed his eyes, the woman who he loved and cherished was there, smiling as if nothing happened between them. He wanted to hate her, to walk out after all she was also the person who broke his heart.

But he couldn’t because he knew deep inside, he still loved her.

When they met however it was not like those fairytale stories. She was bullied simply because her eyes were different from the rest, the right was brown and the left was blue. He didn’t approached her at first because like everyone he was freaked out about it.

He did admit that he never bothered to interact with her. Not until she saw her under a bus stop soaked from the rain and a shivering puppy with black and white fur, she was cuddling it near her chest. That was the first time her eyes twinkled in delight. He invited her to his house to shield her from the rain, she was reluctant at first but once the puppy whimpered she agreed.

He let her use the shower first and lent her some of his clothes. As she blow dried the dogs fur, he stared at them and was amazed to see the same twinkle of delight that she had from earlier. Soon he asked if that was her dog and she told him it wasn’t and it was just abounded. He asked why she picked it and when she answered he regret asking.

“Maybe because I know what it feels like to be left alone.”

He couldn’t forget her after that, he tried to approach her at school but there was something about her aura that scared him away as if she knew about his plan and told him not too.

“Maybe she really wants to be alone.”

But he was wrong because when he went to the park that weekend, he saw her with the same dog. She was talking with a bunch of kids that day, smiling and laughing while the dog ran around the park in his tiny sailor outfit.

He always saw her like that during the weekends she was at the park playing with the kids but at school she was isolated from everyone else. He couldn’t take it, she wasn’t the girl that everyon made her to be, he asked her one day after class; why she always isolated herself.

“Maybe just maybe I don’t want others to be bullied as well.”

Upon hearing that, he felt a pang of guilt, she was being bullied and yet she was still thinking of the welfare of others. Now his resolution to be close to her was solid steel.

It didn’t take long for them to be friends and soon they became best friends. Although the friendship that bloomed between the two of them remained hidden, the both of them knew if others found out about it, it will harm the both of them.

Jaehyun realized his feelings towards her when she laughing at the movie that they were watching a movie at her house. Her head was on his lap as they watched the movie, she kept on laughing at a particular scene and Jaehyun looked down at her, the movie none of his concern. When she looked up to him with the sweetest smile and asked him if he saw how funny the movie was, he knew.

“I maybe in love with you…”

She looked at him with wide eyes and laughed thinking it was a joke but the silence told her otherwise. He saw how her eyes turned into fear and she told him he was mistaken but Jaehyun told her he was pretty sure of his feeling and asked her to be his girlfriend. She blinked and covered her face with her hands. He was shocked when he realized she was crying. “I maybe in love with you too but… I might hurt your feelings… I am going to hurt your feelings. You’ll end up hating me. Y – You don’t know everything about me yet. You’ll regret it…”

Jaehyun removed her hands from her face and leaned down to kiss her forehead.

“Maybe I’ll regret it but if I don’t follow my feelings, twenty years from now I’ll regret it even more knowing that I didn’t took the chance. I might not know everything about you yet but I’m prepared to accept you and whatever your hiding.”

She cried even more when she heard that and it was the start of their relationship. It was a relationship that had its ups and downs. They love each other that much was evident. They cared for one another and understood one another. But no relationship was perfect, like any other relationship they faced conflicts; jealousy, not being able to see each other often, being carried away by their emotions were some to name a few.

But despite all those conflicts they managed to fix their relationship every time. Jaehyun honestly thought that it was her already but he was wrong. One day, she broke up with him and her only explanation was it wasn’t him and it was her.

She left South Korea after that and he never heard of her again. He didn’t hate her no that was impossible Jung Jaehyun was too in love with her but more than anything he was confused. He thought everything was going well, they didn’t fight before that on contrary the day before that the two were so sweet with each other. He knew she wasn’t lying about her being the reason and not him, he knew that she would never lie like that, he was heartbroken because he realized she didn’t trust him enough to tell what was going on her mind.

He was with Yeri at that time modeling her clothes and she was there next to the photographer smiling and laughing with the staff. He wanted to charge towards her and shout at her for leaving him in such a confusing manner but when they locked eyes and when she smiled at him, he stop those thoughts because he knew that he can never hurt this person, this person who he still loves with all his heart.

He was surprised when she called him by his real name everyone in the room as well. She told him that they should talk later to catch up. He made the decision that he needs to know why she decided to leave him.

When the both of them found a conference room that they could talk to in private and upon closing the door, Jaehyun immediately pulled her into a hug. She hugged him back and apologize, his vision blurred with tears, he buried his face on top of her head and when he smelled the familiar scent of her shampoo, he broke down. He missed her, he missed her so damn much that hugging her felt so right. Her hug became tighter and she continuously chanted I’m sorry.

When all the tears were gone, he asked her but still after 3 years she told him it wasn’t him but her. He didn’t know what to feel, did she not trust him that much?

“Maybe this was the reason why we broke up… maybe you never trusted me that’s why you can’t tell it because you never trusted me. Maybe you agreed to be my girlfriend because you pitied me.”

“Or maybe I wanted to protect you.”

He was sick of that, of her not trusting him and not giving him the chance to be by her side. He stood up and before he exited the room, he stated:

“Maybe it was just me, maybe it was just me who loved too much and cared too much.”

A single tear roll down her left eye, her planned work. By now, she was sure he hated her. Her phone rang, she wiped her cheeks and answered her phone. It was her brother, he asked her if her prediction was right and she answered with a faint yes. He answered if he was sure about this and of course she was, she did prepare herself for this but still their was a part of her that wanted to ran after him but she knew better.

“Maybe if I was stronger I could have fought harder for him but I can’t put his name in danger especially since his an artist now. You know I told myself if I see him and his still clinging onto what we had before I’ll end it and that’s what I did. But ya know brother?? It’s kinda hard knowing I still love him from the bottom of my heart and it hurts so much. No.. no don’t talk to dad… I’m fine. N -Next week? HA HA HA I’m going to meet my husband next week for the first time after 5 years oh my god what luck, a week after that I’ll get married. It really is impossible to go against our father.”

i hate heiman just as much as the next guy but don’t you dare say that heidi is the one at fault just because you don’t like her. she was trying so hard to make cartman happy. you don’t have to like heidi and you can like cartman but don’t go around calling heidi a snake when cartman was lying to her and messed with her feelings. and we can’t ignore the fact that he told the boys she was abusive for literally no reason

Request of my fellow Magick and Energy workers

Dear friends,

I am in a situation where two very powerful enemies of mine (possibly enemies from previous lives) have set out to destroy me completely. I have done everything I can do legal wise and have performed many binding, protection, banishing spells/rituals etc.

All of this has helped, but these two are stronger than I imagined.

If anyone would consider reblogging this with positive energy, I would appreciate it. I will do something in return for anyone who would consider doing anything intensive, like a full Tarot Reading/Ritual/etc

Also, I am located on the MS Gulf Coast; I would love to connect with other Witches all over the World, especially in the areas closest to me: New Orleans, and my neighboring states of Alabama, Georgia, And Florida.

I was abruptly cast out of the home I shared with my second husband, why I was stripped of all financial support, dignity and my good reputation, soiled by lies, why my children were taken and hidden from me, despite my being a good and loving mother, why I was subject to years of emotional, physical, verbal and psychological abuse at the hands of two husbands, and why, though I was an unhappy, but faithful wife, I have been given the names of “demon,” “harpy,” “whore,” “crazy,” among many others.

I have had “friends” turn their backs and walk away, friends whom I have known for over thirty years. Family members have disowned me. My ex husbands have been able to take my children away from me, break court orders and the law and hide my children and refuse to allow me to see them, despite the fact both of these men are abusive, woman hating abusers and had little to nothing to do with these children anyway.

All of this happened for one sole reason:

I am a Woman, I am a Witch, and I got tired of hiding my Craft, and brought my beliefs into the open.

I do not regret it one bit, and given the chance, I would do it again.

This is what happens in certain areas of the South to not just Witches, but to Women who dare stand up against Racism, the “Cult” created and perpetuated by the Bible Belt, Sexism and the universally accepted idea that Women should be subservient to Men.

I have followed my own Spiritual Path since I was very small; from around three years old onward.

My Path is Unique to me: I believe in God, The Creator, in His Son, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. However, I also believe in Angels, Saints, Spirit Guides/Animals and other Deities.

I do follow the Ten Commandments and the teachings of Christ, but other than that, I rarely reference the Bible. As I have accepted God as my Master, if I have a need to speak with another Deity, I humbly and respectfully ask that God speak to the Deity on my behalf so as not to break the chain of command between me and my God, and so as not to offend or insult the other Deities.

I am studying other faiths and practices and incorporate the spiritual into my artwork and music. Lately, I have felt the calling to become a Healer and am looking into attending a school of Alternative Medicine.

This is my own personal walk, one I consider to be centered around love and not doctrine.

“Christians” claim their religion is based on “Love,” but it is based on hate, control, oppression, torture, and domination.

None of how I have been treated has displayed Love, but rather the opposite.

I have very few people in my non-online life who have stuck by me and accepted me for who I am. Those people know who they are, and I can never express in words how much that means to me.

To all of my friends here, I appreciate you, your kindness and what you have taught me. To the Community as a whole…regardless of how you practice your Faith and regardless of your unique gifts, I send all of you much love and positive energy. Some of you I have never met in person and may never be able to meet in person, but you have uplifted me with your spells, posts and lovely aesthetics you post.

I send you all much Love.

Thank you again to anyone who has taken time to read and re-blog this.

I have added a blessing and prosperity charm to this post, as well as a positive energy charm. Reading the post alone blesses the reader, likes and reblogging charges and casts the charms and makes it stronger, as well as applies these charms made with love to all of your followers. It was hateful energy from others toward me which has caused this harm; I at least wish to spread love to all those I can.

Likes keep them charged and reblogging casts the charms.

THE LORDS HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO WANT TO OVERTHROW JON AT THIS POINT!!!

We have to remember the lords of the north haven’t seen the NK. Sansa hasn’t seen the NK. No one in Winterfell has seen anything that Jon, and we the viewers have seen. They only have heard stories.

So imagine if you were them. Imagine you were a lord, you are told this huge threat is coming, that you are all going to die unless you stick together.

And then your king, the man telling you all of this, leaves. He runs off to the south to a Targaryen. A member of the family the north hates for obvious reasons.

He’s gone for months. No one has heard a word from him. (As Sansa stated) and you don’t know if he will ever come back. You don’t know if the dragon queen burnt him. You don’t know if you are standing around, waiting for something you were warned about, have never seen nor have a single clue about.

All you have, is Sansa Stark. The women who brought the Vale and helped take back her father is home. The women who helped rescue the north from the Boltons. The women who holds court, readies for winter, overlooks armor detail, and keeps the castle running.

All while her brother, your king, is down south doing god knows what with your lord is enemy.

Now how would you feel? Who would you want ruling over your home?

As of right now, to them, the only threat facing them isn’t the NK they’ve never seen. It’s winter. And winter is here. Jon isn’t.

Don’t blame them for wanting Sansa over Jon right now. Don’t act like they are in the wrong just because they don’t have the info we do.

Chapter 1: Not Your Average Sunday

“Emma! Hurry up or we’re going to be late!”

Emma Nolan rolled her eyes as her mother’s voice carried from downstairs. The woman was habitually late for every aspect of her life but the thought of being late for a Sunday Mass would send Mary Margaret Nolan into an absolute frenzy of promptness. Running a hand through her blonde locks Emma quickly checked her reflection in the full length mirror hanging on the back of her bedroom door.

Most of her clothes were still in New York - there was only so much she could fit in her small bug - but having grown up with her mother she at least had the presence of mind to bring a few Sunday pieces with her. The champagne colored summer dress fell to just a few inches above her knees, flaring out slightly at the waist to create an almost swaying effect as she walked. She kept her accessories simple - her favorite dust rose clutch, the small pearl drop earrings her father had given to her on her twenty-second birthday, and the ever present Swan necklace she had worn since she was seventeen. Her make up was simple and her blonde locks cascaded down her shoulders in loose waves with the champagne heels she had bought at Ruby’s insistence during the brunette’s last trip to New York rounding out her outfit.
