to raise the dead

Love doesn’t dance as lightly
on the tongues of girls like us
girls who don’t choose
those who catch their eyes
only the type of liquor that
will make it easier to slug
fate or God or genetics
whatever it is that made us like this
put sin in our mothers wombs
raised us from the dead
made us see ourselves die
over and over again
girls like us carry ashes
under our tongue
secretly believing that
rebirth is possible
not letting love take its place
where it belongs
we wash it away until
burns feel more normal
than her lips or her fingers or her
girls like us only let it slip out in the dark
when the moon is the only witness
to bloated hearts:
I love her and that won’t change
maybe one day we will leave this place.

Are you vegan? If not you are a total hypocrite. Do you drive a car? If so stop driving. I have several fox pelts- all picked up off the highway where cars hit them. Since killing foxes is bad and cars kill foxes you can't drive. Surprise- many people who have fox pelts or mounts? Don't actually kill foxes- just preserve the remains of already dead foxes,. Yes some do raise foxes to kill for fur, but you will have to stop buying pet food if you don't want to support that- fur farms supply meat.

I was going to avoid responding to this because I don’t want negativity on my blog but (Sorry everyone this is going to be a long one), maybe before getting triggered you should have read the post. It was aimed at those who kill foxes specifically for the purpose of taxidermy or fur.

It’s clear English isn’t their first language, so you can’t just take what ever you want from it and then get mad about it. Anyway here are some key parts I think you skimmed over. “If you like to look at foxes, don’t kill them and put them on your wall.” and “People who kill foxes or any other animal for there fur should be locked up and destroy the key…” If you want to do taxidermy from roadkill, fine. But this post was clearly targeting those who hunt living animals. Next, you said “fur farms supply meat.” they kill foxes specifically for the fur, I’m sorry but I haven’t heard of anyone eating fox meat. That’s just weird, you might as well be eating a dog (Literally. They are both Canidae). Fox meat is known to taste awful and there’s no reason anyone would eat it other than trying to survive on an island with no food or something, so that’s a weird and complete crappy excuse of a defence, it does not justify what they do. They are not raising any foxes for meat, they are doing it solely for the fur which no one needs other than "LOOK ITS REAL FUR WOW FEEL IT”.

Killing animals for food and killing animals for fur are two different things. People eat meat as a part of a diet or at least for a functioning purpose. No one/EXTREMELY a small amount of people eat fox meat, so all those farms that are killing foxes for fur are likely throwing the meat away. No one needs the fur of another animal for warmth or survival. just buy a coat that isn’t a dead animal. And next time please be logged into an account so I can answer these types of posts privately, thanks.

What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

halmccoy  asked:

What does tarek think of good necromancers/death clerics? IE, those who do not raise the dead, but ask for their aid and give them the chance to wreak vengeance on those who wronged them or to comfort their loved ones.

Slightly creepy but tolerable.

School project which involved learning zbrush, polypainting and proper retopo/bake! We could make pretty much anything we wanted and i’ve made a plant necromancer. Big thanks and hugs to @steelsuit who helped me with design uou

ALSO ANOTHER THING

I hate how the show frames Steven as the moral center of the universe but then whenever he fucks up it’s “but he’s just a kid!”

Marco, Star, Dipper, and Mabel, for instance all mess up and has the narriative acknowledge that they mess up. Mabel is impulsive and doesn’t always think things out. Star’s a massive, selfish hypocrite who’s incredibly irresponsible. Marco doesn’t always know what’s best in every situation and often fails to think outside the box. Dipper raised the dead. They all face consequences and get scolded, but they learn and it ultimately helps them become better people.

But Steven? Steven’s always right. He was right to befriend Lapis, Peridot, the cluster, centipeetle,  his racist uncle. Lapis sucking it up in order to befriend somebody who she wanted nothing to do with was presented as the right thing to do. The water spire was going to collapse anyway. Jasper, Bismuth, and Eyeball were all shown to be “in the wrong” (#bismuthwasright). He’s always there to provide the morals for Pearl, Amethyst, Ruby, Sapphire, Greg, the Pizza Wars, whatever. He’s potrayed as this perfect child that can do not wrong and it was endearing way back in CheeseBurger Backpack but now that the show is covering serious topics like bigotry and abuse it simply just doesn’t work and ends up being more less Plebcomics For Kids. 

In an unusual way Shinra skillfully wrapped his wound up in the duct tape as he smiled at Izaya.

“Hahah. Looks like I’m not carved out to be a hero… after all.”
