to pass the time away

Still Another Death in the Family

I have grim news. My paternal grandmother, after going through a serious decline in health, has died. Please offer prayers and wishes for my family.

The disturbingly surreal part is that this is the second time in barely over a year that a family member died on the same day that I took a trip to a movie theater. My brother died after I went on my own to see Zootopia. Now my grandmother has died after I went along with a social club to see the new Power Rangers. In between those times my grandfather also passed away also.

The point is that these are rough times for me, my parents, my sister-in-law, and others around us. I can only hope that I can be good to all of them. Please offer us your good will.

THE HO’S, a Hoseok fansite, has passed away due to a cerebral hemmorhage

While I will not be translating the full post, I wanted to let ARMYs beyond Twitter what has happened…

Her sister uploaded a statement saying that it has been a while since THE HO’S has passed away because her family needed time to handle the issue, but she wanted to let fans know of what has happened to THE HO’S,

It is not stated specifically when this occurred, but she collapsed due to a cerebral hemorrhage and was later announced brain dead. It was also stated that she previously had not had health issues and that this was a sudden event.

According to her own wishes, she has donated her organs to two individuals and has saved their lives. 

Her fansite friends said the last message they received from her was “What would be a good present to give to Hoseok for his birthday?” They all said that she always put others and Hoseok before herself and was always smiling. Truly an angelic human being.

As she had launched a photobook project, her first and last photobook, her sister and family will be carrying on the project as they know how hard she worked and how excited she was for this project.

Please make sure to send messages to her account @THEHO218 on Twitter. Even just a few words of “Rest in peace” or other words of condolence would mean a lot, especially as her sister is still running the fansite for her.

She always uploaded such beautiful pictures of Hoseok for ARMYs and wanted to share her love for Hoseok and BTS with us. I am always grateful for her and will never forget her. I hope that she is in a better place now. Thank you, THE HO’s, for all of your hard work. May you rest in peace.

Can I just say how much I admire Louis’ strength? He’s gonna go on that stage tonight, sing an amazing song for his beautiful mother in front of MILLIONS, for the first time ALONE, only DAYS after his mother passed away. Think about all the emotions, all the pressure. I wouldn’t be able to do it… But Louis can, because he’s so strong, always has been.

BTS’s V Makes Heartbreaking Confession At Fan Meeting

On November 12, BTS held their first fan meeting for their BTS 3rd Muster.

During the encore portion of the fan meeting, the members individually addressed their fans (ARMY). When it was V’s turn, he got teary-eyed and started out with mentioning how fans noticed that he didn’t seem well recently.

V explained that his paternal grandmother recently passed away. He revealed that she passed away while the group was in the Philippines. V shed tears as he talked about how his grandmother was like a parent to him because she raised him for 13 years. He also explained about his special shoutout to his grandmother when they won first place at “Music Bank” recently. While he had planned on surprising her through a special way on television, he noted that the timing did not work out and she passed away before he was able to do so.

Fans shed tears along with V as he shared these details. He concluded with saying that he believes that BTS was able to get to where they are today because of ARMY, but also because of his grandmother blessing him from heaven. He then asked fans to remember his grandmother.

Jimin hugged V after this and gave his own comments. After Jimin, Jungkook was next and he also shed tears. Finally, Rap Monster showed his insightful side as he talked about V and Jungkook opening up and thanked them for having the courage to be vulnerable. He also said he loves the members.

The fan meeting ended on a happy note as the members performed songs after that and got closer to their fans. BTS will hold their second fan meeting for BTS 3rd Muster on November 13.

We offer our sincerest condolences to V and his family.

the character development in steven universe is interesting to me because it doesn’t start from scratch… the gems already know each other and have had consistent relationships for a very long time, but one of them passes away so they have to completely rebuild those relationships around that tragedy… it’s much less the standard “characters meet and grow closer over time” and more “they love each other very deeply but have all changed and have to learn to hold those relationships and support each other again”

Gabe, the greatest dog and meme of our time, passed away yesterday, aged 17 years. He borked his way into fame, and into our hearts. May he rest in peace.

BTS SPRING DAY THEORY.

Based on MV only.

1.Taehyung was seen kneeling in the train track alone.
He was paying respect to Jin that had pass away and was also trying to reminiscences the time the 7 of them enjoyed on the train ride.

2. Which pans out to a scene of the train track which could suggest a ride back to the past.

3. Jungkook on train and jimin at sea alone which shows the aftermath of Jin’s death. They 6 friends are separated from each other wanting to be alone and paying their respects to Jin in their own ways.

4. Rapmon’s Lyrics : Miss you (they miss jin and the times they were together.
Time’s cruel (further emphasis on jin’s death)
Seeing each other for once is now so hard between us. (Suggest that they split up after jin’s death and also the 6 of them never met up after his death)

5. First appearance of omelas : it's  bright with people suggest the happiness of the 7 friends
No vancany because they are happy with just 7 people it’s more enough to create happiness in their omelas and true enough it is supported by the time they spend playing around in their happy sphere of bubble: omelas.

6. Staircase scene. Jin was the only one not on the stairs and not moving which is the reason why i suspect his dead and him holding up an invisible Polaroid  where he always capture the moments he had with his friends but he is no longer able to continue his journey with them therefore he didn't  follow up the stairs because he has to go.
He was trying to capture the last moment with them using his eyes and a fake Polaroid.

7. Jungkook and his ynwa merry-go-round. V alone on train track and jimin at beach. Everyone is alone. He was also reminising about the past and was alone because he misses jin and his friends which went separate ways after his death.

8. Omelas with only rapper line out front in winter. They don’t look happy because they wanted to leave this so called fake ‘happiness’ ‘paradise’ after Jin’s death.

9. Taehyung foreshadowing jin’s death with fake camera in his hands.

10..Jimin with shoes at the beach contrasted to Jin not wearing shoes in WINGS and wearing a white shoe in run concept photos because you don’t need shoes if you are dead in reality (wings) but you need shoes if you live in heaven (run)

11. Jin with washing machine. And his photo is like literally in the washing machine. More memories of jin and members. Because jin washes their clothes for them.  Now he is dead so the clothes piled up as no one is there to wash for them.

12. Jhope turn to reminise about the past and eveb have a paper plane to send a letter to Jin above. Because he wants to communicate to jin in heaven so they always look up in concept photos too.

13. Staircase scene..now jin is alone because his friends have all left him. He has nothing to capture as memories and put down his fake camera.

14. Jungkook tried to find his friends and ended up at omelas now with a dark aura and no vacancy suggesting that their happy moment is no longer available.  The word play on’ no vacancy’ and the contrast in color of the 'omelas’ suggest the end of their most beautiful moment in life.

15. He ran to places they have been before..from train to washing machine. Finally met his friends but was all but a memory.
Taehyung’s lyrics: you know it all you are my bestfriend. (This is an ultimate way of suggesting jin’s death)

16. Jungkook with his match sticks. Namjoon in train alone. Jungkook was alone at first but relight so his matchstick and was with his friends.

17. Jimin beckoning them to come to the fields.
Because lyrics “ i will come for you (jin)” and “no season last forever”

18. Jimin place the shoes to commemorate or remind them of Jin on a tree. And they members are now all back together looking fondly at the tree.
The last scene the tree at cherry blossoms. “Until the cherry blossoms” so maybe jin died in winter and they had a rough time but now spring is finally here as you can see cherry blossoms near the trees and they are back together as 7 members.

19. If you count the last scene where there is the tree and only 6 people on the ground in the shade of the tree. Jin is still watching over them.
Because in the end: You never walk alone.


Omggggg. I am soo dead..gosh damn i cannot take this. 💯 for bts and bighit.
Okay then again this time around the mvs isn’t as tricky but it’s just my theory. There can be 101 more interpretation. Also it’s just based on the spring day mv. So i believe there is a deeper insight. I will wait for not today to come out too. Okayy. I am soo tired. And well overwhelmed. 😢😙❤

Aaron Hotchner & Emily Prentiss: A History

From him not wanting her there, to her quiting her job to save his and him convincing her to go back with him, passing by the time he sent her away to save her life, to all the times he asked her to return, to the very last time, when he requests that it be her the one to take his place as the BAU Unit Chief. (and so many more things in the middle)

Well it almost got cold in Houston, so I decided to take advantage and wear some longer sleeves. I wish this weather would just make up it’s mind.

I love prints, so when I saw this vintage dress at the thrift store I just had to get it! I already owned this awesome fabric for the head scarf and together I thought it was a great look. 

Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and my family had made plans for dinner at my Grandad’s, but yesterday he fell and broke his hip, so now our plans have all been postponed. 

It was pretty scary to see him in so much pain. Thankfully I work as a caregiver to him, so I, as well as my mom and sister, were there only minutes after the fall.

This was the whole reason I moved back to Houston…to be with and help my Grandad. My Grandmother passed away this time last year, so it’s been a strange time being in this city without her and I can only imagine how that’s affected Granddaddy, after all they were married for over 60 years (unbelievable!). 

In my family, on both my mom and dad’s sides, every event pretty much revolves around the Grands, so this season is already proving to be pretty tough for me. My Grandad is the last of my Grands and I’m really struggling with this. However, I am so so grateful to be able to be spending so much time with him now. There are so many distractions in life, the only thing that really matters are the relationships you have with people and the memories you make with them. Time is precious, don’t let it slip away from you.

Today was an emotional rollercoaster and I spent 90% of it in my room

A man once asked Aboo Al-Dardaa’ for advice, so he said:

“Remember Allaah in good times and He will mention you in hard times. When you remember those who have passed away, consider yourself like one of them. And when you think of involving yourself in some worldly matter, consider first what it will lead to in the end.”

Al-Dhahabî in Siyar A’lâm Al-Nubalâ’, under the biography of Abû Al-Dardâ’

“No way! CranOrange pancakes with chocolate chips?! Ren! We haaaaaave to make those! Now!”

She was always like this. Nora could never stay focused unless she was fighting. They had been waiting to meet up with Jaune and Ruby for a little over an hour. They had planned a meeting after everyone else in the Inn was fast asleep and no prying ears or eyes could sneak away with information. To pass the time, Nora wanted to look up new types of pancakes to eat. With him.

“No, Nora. We have to wait for Ruby and Jaune and there is no access to a kitchen.”

“But where are we going to get all the ingredients and a mixer at 1:00 am?”

Her recklessness and chaotic nature, albeit trying at times, was a constant in his life, and soothed Ren. She was his rock.

“Are you even listening?”

“They’re taking forever, Ren! And pancakes take, what…10 minutes tops?!!?”

She smiled ear to ear, tugging harder on his neck. Ren sighed, feeling like he was going to lose this argument. Again.

“Ren, the cooks won’t even know we’re there!”

“Nora, no.”

Nora pouted, looking at Ren with disappointment written all over her face. Ren brought his scroll towards them.

“How about we just bookmark this, instead? When we get to Haven, we’ll make them. We’ll be safer there and have plenty of time to eat them.”

Nora’s eyes lit up, turning her face back to the scroll. “YES!”

Ren felt Nora tug on him once more, and with it came a smile.

‘If it makes you smile; truly smile, then I’m happy. I’ll stand between anything that tries to give you one more painful memory. I won’t let you suffer anymore…Nora.’

You cannot tell me that after Pyrrha’s death, Ren and Nora aren’t going to be grieving for a while and also start moving toward being “together-together”. 

Ren and Nora have already suffered early in life, but now someone who was their age, and a superior fighter, was killed so easily. Not only will they grow as characters because of this tragedy, but they will be more protective of one another than ever before.

Not that Nora needs “protecting”. Lets be honest, they’re both the knights in shining armor, if anything. Who is the princess in that scenario, then? Jaune. It’s always Jaune.

“A few months ago, my friend drowned in a swimming pool while I was with him. We were just hanging out. I was cooking for us. Then I stepped away to take a phone call, and when I came back, he was face down at the bottom of the pool. I was only gone for a few minutes. I don’t even know what happened. He never told me that he couldn’t swim. I tried CPR and he was still alive when the ambulance came. I prayed so hard. I called everyone I knew and asked them to pray. I called prayer lines. Everyone prayed for him at church. I was hoping that everything would be OK and that this could just be part of my testimony. I was hoping I could say: ‘I dedicated my life to God, and here’s what happened.’ But my friend passed away. He’d actually been dead the entire time I was praying. And it’s been so confusing for me. Because right before this happened, I’d been feeling so close to God. I was volunteering at church. I was going to midweek services. I was reading books. I was giving more of my money. I was partying less. I was trying to stay positive, and be mindful, and use less bad words. And I felt so close to God. I’d have conversations with him while standing on the subway platform. But it’s been hard lately. It’s hard to read my Bible verses. I’m scared to ask for anything. I say ‘thank you’ when I wake up every morning, but anything beyond that is very difficult.”

IT WAS A BUTTERFLY HORSE!

AND I’M PRETTY SURE I SEE A SMALLER BUTTERFLY CREATURE ON A LEASH IN THE BACKGROUND. A BUTTERFLY CAT? A BUTTERFLY DOG? A STRAIGHT UP GIANT BUTTERFLY?

AND THERE’S A FANCY LADY RIDING A GIANT BIRD SIDE SADDLED IN THE NEXT PANEL. 

GIVE ME ALL OF IT. 

Meanwhile Mokona is living the dream. 

And Sakura and Syaoran got entirely dressed during a scene transition. 

That’s cheating. 

together, we’re infinite

Tsukishima has never liked being touched.

A pat on the back, a hug from a relative, a friend nudging his ribs - it’s an invasion of his personal space, and he hates it. It’s awkward, uncomfortable. A reminder of how different he is, because normal people seem to like it, and that’s just not him.

Well, that’s how it seems at least, because what Tsukishima does like is watching. He’s good at it, too. Choosing somewhere to sit, headphones on, eyes looking. Picking up details. The way that Suga looks when Kageyama makes an incredible set - proud, but also sad. The way that Nishinoya squints when he focuses, so enveloped in the game that he even sometimes misses his teammates chatter.

He sees it all, and sort of files it away. He’s not sure why; to pass the time, maybe. Maybe it’ll help on the court. Regardless, his outward demeanor is cold and unapproachable, which keeps most from bothering him.

The only person who doesn’t seem deterred by it is Yamaguchi, but, that’s different, because it’s Yamaguchi. He’s the only one who gets him, and doesn’t push his boundaries. They’re friends, and, truly, the only person Tsukishima could really call a friend is him. That’s okay, though - it’s not like he needs a million friends. He’s happy with one. He has things to focus on, like school, and getting into a good college.

But of course, it can never be that simple, because a bunch of idiots just have to come along and wrestle their way into Tsukishima’s life.
