this is the ultimate test

Space Australian Medicine

Despite the best efforts of everyone involved, something truly nasty escaped Earth. They call it giardia, a microscopic organism that their Planetary Protection Officer called “pretty dumb” and “not too bad, really, a week of digestive upset and then it’s over.”

Yes, Earth has a Planetary Protection Officer. They have a Planetary Protection Office, and have had one since they were sending probes around their own solar system. Doctor Ma-et had found it a bit silly, like a child concerned about the cleanliness of their toys, until she learned that the job of the Planetary Protection Office had always been protecting other worlds from Earth.

First of all, Bellamy and Clarke have always been at the center of this show. It has always been the story of — on some level — Clarke and her relationship to Bellamy. And whether they were going to survive or not depended on how well those two human beings worked together — whether romantic or otherwise. I try not to take a position on it. I think it’s ultimately kind of a Rorschach test for people: any interpretation is right, there’s no right and wrong. Until we commit canonically to it, you’re free to interpret it any way you want.

Jason Rothenberg on what’s in store for Bellamy and Clarke

http://ew.com/tv/2017/05/24/the-100-season-4-finale-explained/

Sometimes he woke up in the middle of the night, startled by something. Might be his dreams, might not. He didn’t remember enough of them to tell.

What he remembered of them usually went like this:

He woke up alone. Statics filled the air. The streets buzzed. The punches never came, and he just walked the streets until he was on the ground, in front of an alleyway. The dusty lamppost stood between him and the entrance. The light flickered the way usual household light bulbs did, but slower.

Then he woke up, alone, the newest podcast playing on loop in his ears. The light was always off.

It really wasn’t much to go by.

even more bc it has to run its course 

I think the best thing about Keith and Lance is that these two hated each other in the beginning of the show

But slowly as it went on, even though they still didn’t agree with everything that they did and they still had some arguments, you can tell that they started to care more about each other 

Look at Keith being concerned for Lance

(I can’t get over this part, he was so impatient for him to come out because he wanted him to heal so badly)

And look at Lance after he found out that the Red lion was attacking the base in the Blade of Marmora episode, he knew Keith was possibly in danger and he looked so concerned for him

(Especially the way he says “Allura?” too)

Lance and Keith’s relationship is slowly progressing as the seasons go on, and I personally think that it will be the most valid in season three now that Shiro’s gone. 

Shiro was always the one that came between them so that they would stop fighting. Now that he’s gone and they’re probably going to have to find him, they’re going to need to work together (not just as teammates but as friends/acquaintances too).

Their relationship was set up to reach this point, rivals at first, but when they both lose something important to them, their bond/connection/team work matters now more than ever. 

We already know that they actually are a pretty decent team when they want to be

(Getting out of that elevator together)

(Going on missions)

And there are so many more moments, but now it goes beyond Voltron and it’s a matter of can they work together as Lance and Keith, and not just as Lance and Keith the paladins. 

That’s going to be the ultimate test, but I personally think they can it’s just a matter of how and when. They’re going to be very important to each other in season three, I can tell. 

There are some people we cannot help but love, no matter how complicated or disastrous it may be for us. If we could choose not to love them we would, simply because they bring us nothing but heartache and despair… Yet for reasons beyond our control, we cannot help but love them… and as painful and as complicated as the situation inevitably is, our love for them remains simple and pure. We don’t want to love them, we try not to love them… in fact there are times we’d almost love to hate them for the anguish they cause us – but still our hearts refuse to give up on them as a lost cause when our better judgment tells us differently.
And ultimately relationships like that are indeed a test of love – but not in the way that we think. They’re not there to test the limits of what love can endure… they’re there to test if we love ourselves enough to walk away.

Scorpio - Eternal’s Princess 

The revering figures of Scorpio are represented often in text - Hades being death himself, the formidable force uncomfortable truth, and the masked assassin. But deep down in the halls where Hades rules there is a throne glistening in sea and soul, the throne for the Princess who valiantly guards the threshold with ferocious winds and demons coursing through her hair. The blood of her fought battles tattooed into her skin, her eyes ablaze with the power and prestige of ruling the underworld. That’s no easy task for someone who thought she was a mere girl, the duty of taking souls on journeys and extracting lies and traumas like a psychic surgeon. She oozes magnetism and prowess, her presence is as noticeable as her absence, and in some way she is always watching, observing, and calculating. Even with her high heels and contouring done, her swords are always raised in some form, she knows of the battle to survive life itself, she is the sign where the second great battle is undertaken. She is the sacred governor of ‘the initiates’, and her job contract in the underworld can consume her whole world. Her serpents are constantly slithering into the material, mimicking lovers and betrayals, whispering lies and betrayal, sometimes triggering destructive paranoia. She can be forced to spend so much time on these crusades that she loses touch with everything around her. Mars is the ruler of Scorpio and the ruler of blood itself. Blood is a symbol of life, death, suffering, vitality, and salvation. She also rules iron, orgasm, arousal, and carnal passions. The feminisation of Mars through Scorpio allows for meaningful conflict that generates personal and soul development. There is no lack of courage or fight in Scorpio. She must defend her crown with the claws of the scorpion, she must be unrelenting, impossible to catch, and cryptic. The princess doesn’t want to be caught losing her mind with too much soul, she doesn’t want to be crucified. The tests she undertakes are invisible, but ultimately real. She clutches the keys that unlock the underworld, knowing that she contains the greatest secret.

Your dad was Tony Stark, and you knew it. Your mom was 100% certain he was and she even had DNA results to back it up from when you were a baby. Honestly you would be convinced without the test- anyone would be. You were like him in so many ways. You had his sass, his music taste, and most notably from an early age, you had his smarts.

anonymous asked:

I was wondering if you/your followers had any advice about doing your own makeup? I've never taken the time or had the patience before, and I feel like with my fine motor issues I'd just make a mess. I don't want to do anything too drastic, maybe just a nice lip color and some eyeliner when I'm in the mood.

I have issues with my fine motor skills too and i’m uber lazy. I’ll tell you some easy beginner tips i’ve learnt:

For a no make up- make up:

  • BB cream, you apply it just as a facial cream, it hides imperfections while protects you from sunlight and also it evens your skin tone and gives you a glowy look
  • A pink/peach blush (you apply it with a brush but you can also find it in cream or mousse to dab it with your fingers). Sometimes I just put lipstick on my cheeks and rub it very well
  • A soft color on your lips. Chapstick or lipgloss is easier for me than lipstick.

If you have more time: 

  • Apply a soft eyeshadow with your fingers. Light brown or peach might work with most skin tones. White eyeshadow under your eyebrows arc and on the inner corner of your eyelids gives you bigger and more awake eyes  
  • Put on some mascara. I’d recommend to practice curling your lashes with a spoon or an eye lash curler, whatever is easier for your hands. Meanwhile you learn, there’s transparent mascara that won’t show if you mess up
  • Comb your eye brows. Honestly I use either black or transparent mascara on them to make them look fuller. Eye liner works for me too
  • Using an intense lip color will make you seem as if you wore more make up than you do
  • Compact powder, with or without the BB cream will make your skin look matte. It does wonders on oily skin 

If you mastered everything before:

  • The ultimate test is to learn how to use eyeliner. There’s gel, liquid and pencil eyeliner. I can’t draw with gel and i find liquid easier. Mastering the cat eye is all about trial and error.

This are my lazy girl’s basics. If you want something more complex, @the-zombs-macabre is your girl. 

Send selfies when you do your make up!
