this shouldn't be as adorable as it is

…I can’t possibly accept this award. And I’m very humbled and I’m very grateful and gracious but my artist of my life is Beyonce and this album to me, the ‘Lemonade’ album, was just so monumental, Beyonce. It was so monumental. And so well thought out, and so beautiful and soul-bearing, and we got to see another side to you that you don’t always let us see, and we appreciate that, and all us artists here who adore you. And you are our light, and the way that you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my BLACK friends feel is empowering, and you make them stand up for themselves, and I love you. I always have and I always will.

You can’t tell me Qrow didn’t win Baby Ruby over by making her a rose flower crown, and sequentially turning her into his biggest adoring fan, you just can’t ok!

Sorry for being a bit inactive lately! I’ve been dealing with a lot of stuff and just needed to take a break, but I’m gonna work hard and make lots of new RWBY content if it kills me! Till next time~ ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

I love knowing that out there are many people who ship supercorp and adore Katie Mcgrath, but also ship sanvers and respect Floriana Lima
how I see the signs and what I want them to know
  • (side note - View of a Virgo rising, Leo sun in the 12th, Libra moon in 2nd, mercury Cancer in 11th, venus Leo in 12th, mars Leo in 11th)
  • Aries: was once my best friend, she made literally everything in my life brighter and always helped me to just enjoy things and stop worrying all the time. Also great hugs. Just simply has that energy, wherever it may be - physically, mentally, staying up until you binge watched that show, giving you their last money so you can get yourself something to eat before you starve to death, always down for a talk and a walk even if they had a packed schedule. Please don't miss out on times when you just have to take a day off to get your beautiful and strong energy back. I care about your health so please don't forget to eat properly and don't miss out on that quality time if needed.
  • Taurus: a girl from my drama class and my little sisters moon sign, I am just so in love with your sense for aesthetic. Total sunshines. I feel like I can always rely on you, super compassionate and knows how to make you feel comfortable when youre not. I love that when you have a goal in your mind, you will give your everything to achieve that! Also so humble but like I want you so desperately to know how beautiful I think you are!! I enjoy your company a lot. Please don't be afraid of changes, I know that's such a mainstream thing to write for Taurus but I really do believe that maybe sometimes you need to be reminded that life can also begin at the end of your comfort zone.
  • Gemini: a guy and a girl from biology class, I am literally stunned at how much these people know. Eloquent fluffballs. I could listen to you spreading knowledge 24/7, make great jokes in my opinion and just kind of knows... everyone?? Get along with so many people, can be very chill but also full of energy when they're talking about things they are interested in. Also fun-fact kings and queens. Please remind yourself to stay loyal to your true friends, you may know many people with whom you get along with so well and for sure everyone is intersting in their own way, but it's very possible to feel lonely in a crowd. Your closest friends will always get you out of that and help you, I promise.
  • Cancer: a close friend of mine, literally the most caring person I've ever met. Actual comedians. I don't know I just straight up fell in love with your humour. All the Cancers I know have or had some extreme physical problems going on, please get well soon if you read this and you're also not feeling well. Mentally on the next level, strong and kind of unbreakable. Don't hide their feelings because they just know that when you bottle up your feelings it's never going to end well. They just get you and will be there for you no matter what. Please take care of yourself just as well as you do with your friends and family, you are a true blessing and it's definitely okay to rant or cry or just let it all out.
  • Leo: my english teacher and a guy I used to be close with, very often completely misunderstood and taken for granted, which can lead to unhealthy behaviour. Will make you feel great after a plain shit day. I strive to be this talented at just expressing myself or being confident, even if you just want the world to think you are confident when you're actually not. Cuddly queens and kings. Better not hurt their pride because it took them a lot of time to actually get to that level and in a world where people hate on you for loving yourself, to them it feels like, despite all their work, they are not worth of loving themselves. Please don't forget that although sometimes it's hard to look in the mirror and like what you see, there are caring and warm-hearted people who love you just the way you are.
  • Virgo: a girl in my class I simply adore, I always annoy you with my endless compliments. Kind of just in love with these down-to-earth and sweet people. Either super chill or worried a lot, I wish I could just hug you until you feel less stressed. Smol but strong beans you can learn a lot from. So reliable, I actually hate doing group projects and always want to do everything myself but since you share that opinion we created something I was really proud of and now we always do them together. Please remember that passion is something you shouldn't be ashamed of, you simply don't have to be because it's something you love and your needs are valid. Also dreaming big, it's possible, especially for you so why not?
  • Libra: a girl I recently got to know and am already completely amazed by, literal social butterflies who sometimes only know in hindsight how much they enjoyed the company of someone because they adapt so easily and it's rare to find someone where you can just simply be yourself. Love how they view life and that they make me want to talk more. Very open and you never feel excluded because they just know how to include everyone. Please don't forget to remind yourself who you truly are and not to lose yourself in another person, because there really is only one you no matter how good you are at adapting to literally every social situation, you are amazing and I want you to be comfortable as well.
  • Scorpio: my dad and my ex boyfriend's mom, two very caring peole in their own way. I always love how sharp their sarcasm can be. Can comfort extremely well when they want to. So many secrets and things to know about them that I can lose myself in them wanting to explore whats actually behind their shell. Teaches you life lessons. Please don't forget that humans aren't flawless and that's completely okay. You don't have to hold onto old grudges, communication is key and talking about these things, confronting these people who did you wrong will help you grow as a person.
  • Sagittarius: an old friend of mine, very cute people who get interested in so many things and they are so versatile and adventurous I absolutely love their lively nature. Memes™. Total dorks you can fall for in a second. Are actually the best partners to just talk to about anything because they will be interested and share their opinion with you. Please remind yourself that cutting off people can be a very wise decision and you don't have to keep up with everyones shit if that's just not what you're in for.
  • Capricorn: I am literally so attracted to these people it's unreal, although I kind of always think that they don't like me...... anyways, my bigger twin sisters are caps and they are humble souls who really had to fight for a lot in life sadly. So proud of you. Keep up with the hard work, you really deserve everything. So realistic and pure I have heart eyes. Supportive and extremely loyal. Will stand up for you if you need it. Straight face™ but still manages to make even the most serious people laugh. Please remind yourself to not overdo it with the work, take a day off to relax and let yourself go maybe, even if it's hard - with the right people you don't ever have to be afraid of being yourself.
  • Aquarius: my ex boyfriend whom I had a crush on for like 4 years, teached me great life lessons. Will always have a weakness for aquas, they just attract me so much, how much of a fluffy dork can you be tbh? Capacity of acceptance is incredible. So much fun to be with. Are kind of just good at everything? You can talk to them about anything, it won't feel weird, they won't question it and just talk to you about that topic. So friendly, an underrated trait in my opinion, just complete and simple friendliness you enjoy to the fullest. Please remind yourself to let people not only see your amazing shell but also your stunning core, there are people who love to talk about the same things you love and nothing about you is weird, you are special and I absolutely love it.
  • Pisces: a very sweet guy I've been texting with for the past months, very open minded and also have that sensitivity I strive to have. Very inspirational smol puppy. Actual daydreamers™, may be late to school but love deeply and would never neglect your love. Kind of hate almost everything that's planned out? (I'm sorry I just love to plan things out) will hug you no matter what. Does not fear to dream big, is very talented at artsy stuff in my opinion. Please don't forget that even if it seems hard, and yes our school system is kind of very bad,we get to have that education and your dreams will be reality if you work hard enough to achieve them. You have so much potential, please don't ever waste it.
  • Snape: If the body's only been dead for ten minutes how'd he end up all freshly bloody and mangled? [looks at Remus]
  • Remus: Yes,... probably the work of- ...that infamous Hogwarts jaguar... Yeah, yes! The ah... the Hogwarts Jaguar, responsible for so much property damage to Hogwarts this year, especially... in my office.
  • Remus: [coughs behind hand in funny voice] "Lupin shouldn't have to pay for that"
  • Remus: Yes, who said that? Probably that jaguar, plus his soft adorable paws that he trips over when he starts running too fast.
Happy Birthday Sandee!!

Have a wonderful birthday, Sandee! Hope these two goofs brightened your day.

PSA

You can ship Namjin because:

- they have a great dynamic as leader of the band and the oldest of the band. It’s interesting as korea as a whole is big on age deals where the oldest needs to be respected meanwhile Namjoon probably has the final say in almost everything.

- they are polar opposites in which Namjoon, especially during their debut days, was trying so hard to prove that he can surpass any limitation while Jin, as told by the lyrics in awake, understands his limitation and tries his best to work with it.

- Namjoon wrote awake. Imagine the heart to heart talk they had to get the lyrics done.

- Namjoon has called Jin cute in more than one occasion.

- Seokjin has laughed at Namjoon for being cute in more than one occasion.

- they have a cute dynamic of both being the wing dancers of bangtan.

- they look cute together.

You can ship Namjin without feminizing Jin, especially by calling him a princess or a mom.

You can ship them as equal men who simply adore and respect each other.

Namjin is still a great ship.

Why do Catholics pray to saints? Shouldn't prayer be reserved for God alone?

Hi friend!

Before I address why we pray with the saints, it is important to understand that there are different types of prayer: intercessory, adoration, praise, thanksgiving, etc. These different types of prayer all help us grow in our relationship with God and help us grow in His grace, they’re just different “routes” to the same destination (God).

Let’s say I had a hard day and ask a friend to pray for me. I am asking that friend to intercede for me (this is also known as a secondary meditation). The same thing happens when I pass along a prayer to a saint: they are interceding to the Father. My friend and the saint join their prayers to my own en route to Christ. Since those who are in Heaven are united intimately to Him, why would we not take advantage of this marvelous gift? In fact, the prayers of the saints in Heaven is more powerful than ours because they are free of all sin, which hinders our prayers (Matthew 17:20, 1 John 3:22, Psalms 66:18).

See, prayer to God includes worship. Prayer with the saints includes honor, but not worship. We are always going to God. Sometimes, we ask others to come along on our journey to God. Our journey to Heaven is not one we are meant to walk alone. We are made for community and called to eternal communion in Heaven with He who is the Perfect Communion. When we pray to the saints, we’re asking for them to help a brother/sister out.

Praying to and with the saints does not take away from the attention which is only due to Jesus Christ. For we do not worship the saints. Worship belongs only to God. The saints are models of holiness that truly followed Christ. We acknowledge that they lived and died with God’s friendship in their lives. Because of how inspirational they were, and how they lived their lives, we look to them for inspiration.

“The Communion of the Saints. How shall I explain it to you? You know what blood transfusions can do for the body? Well, that’s what the Communion of the Saints does for the soul.” -St. Josemaria Escriva 

“The Saints were not superhuman. They were people who loved God in their hearts, and who shared this joy with others.” - Pope Francis

Here’s a couple of links that are good to look at as well:

I’m praying for you, Anon. Let me know if you need anything else!

Brandon

P.S. - I got most of this response from a book called Truth Be Told: Basics in Catholic Apologetics by Mark Hart and Joe Cady. It’s such a gift to the Church. It’s seriously a must-have for any and every Catholic.

Love tastes like iced coffee. Love tastes like chocolate and sushi and raspberries and cheese and hot cocoa. Love tastes like lips in the cold air, love tastes like sugar on your tongue, and love tastes like stolen kisses.
Love looks like long drives and clear night skies. Love looks like your head on my chest and love looks like Christmas lights and a single rose. Love looks like your eyes. Love looks like your smile.
Love feels like happiness. Love feels like warm sunshine and cold mountain air and our arms wrapped around each other. Love feels like the way your body fits next to mine, love feels like our fingers intertwined. Love feels like falling asleep in your arms, love feels like a chest full of light and cheeks that hurt from smiling and love feels like the way you look at me when you think I don’t know.
Love sounds like laughter and teasing and “I hate yous” that we will never truly mean. Love sounds like “get home safe”. Love sounds like “I adore you”. Love sounds like loud music and songs you wrote and love sounds like the way you say my name. Love sounds like everything but the word itself because we’re both too scared to say it. Love sounds like a song that’s being sung over and over and over in my head; love, love, love, love.
You.

Hey, after reading that "question" the anon sent you about the smol Yuuri's, it makes me think how sick the world is. You have the right to dress however you please and you shouldn't be disrespected. The Smol Yuuri's you drew are adorable and you shouldn't be criticized for what your drawings wear, its your drawing so you should be able to draw it in any clothes you want regardless of the gender. Please keep drawing Yuuri as smol and adorable as he is and draw him in whatever clothing you want.
