“If I did something wrong, it was out of ignorance. Maybe I was too strict with him. I was in the army for twenty-seven years so that’s all I knew. He’s really pulled away lately. He doesn’t go to church. He doesn’t care about school. He thinks he knows everything and that we don’t understand anything about his life. So he always locks himself in his room. Recently he told me that he hated me. And I lost my temper and told him that he was no longer my son. Both of us apologized but things are still difficult. I think he’s just very uncomfortable with life. Maybe he feels like the black sheep of the family. My wife and I are professors and both his sisters are doing well. I just don’t know what to do. I’m trying to pull back now and be more lenient. I punish him less. I stopped taking away his phone when he doesn’t do his schoolwork. I don’t want him to rebel any more, but when I back off, it’s hard to be strict again and provide structure. So I just don’t know. I’m reading books to figure out how to reach him. I want him to understand that it doesn’t matter to me if he’s successful in a professional way. I just want him to have some sort of purpose.”

Hi my name is Ebony Dark'ness Georgi Popovich Raven Way and I have short ebony black hair (that’s how I got my name) and dark eyes filled with limpid tears. I am skating to carabosse (AN: if u don’t know what that is then get da hell out of here).I’m also Russia’s top skater and I train in a rink with Yakov (I’m twenty-seven). I am an evil witch (in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear mostly black. I love hot topic and buy all of my clothes there. For example today I was wearing my purple and black skate costume and black skates. I was wearing blue lipstick, white foundation, and dark purple eyeshadow. I was walking outside the ice rink. It was snowing and raining so there was no sun, which I was very happy about. Yuri Katsuki stared at me. I put up my middle finger at him.


February 11th 1990: Mandela released

On this day in 1990, the South African activist and politician Nelson Mandela was released from prison. Mandela had spent twenty-seven years in prison for his role as an anti-apartheid activist at the head of Umkhonto we Sizwe, which translates as Spear of the Nation. The controversial organisation served as the militant armed wing of the African National Congress political party, born out of a frustration among anti-apartheid activists that their non-violence was met with brutality by white authorities against black citizens. Mandela was arrested in 1962 and sentenced to life in prison, during which time he was largely condemned as a terrorist by Western nations. He served most of his twenty-seven years on Robben Island, then Victor Verster Prison near Cape Town, and during his imprisonment his reputation grew as a significant black leader both in South Africa and internationally. Mandela was finally freed after the ban on the ANC was lifted by the apartheid government. Upon his release, Mandela led the ANC in the successful negotiations with President F.W. de Klerk to end apartheid, and was overwhelmingly elected President of South Africa in the first multi-racial elections in 1994, serving until 1999. In 2013, Nelson Mandela died aged 95 and has been mourned around the world as a hero who fought for freedom in South Africa, and as a symbol of resistance for oppressed peoples everywhere.

“Our march to freedom is irreversible. We must not allow fear to stand in our way.”


“Everyday, the heart creates enough energy to drive a truck 20 miles. In a lifetime, that is equivalent to driving to the moon and back.
So, when you tell someone you love them ‘to the moon and back’ you’re essentially saying you will love them with all the blood your heart pumps your whole life, which I think is equally as meaningful.”

sometimes love isn’t meant to last.

sometimes the person you love most in the world will have you pinned against the door by your throat until you apologise for something you never did as blood drips from your nose to the floor like a fountain

but sometimes when you’re nineteen or you’re twenty seven or you’re forty three, someone comes in to your life and makes flowers grow from your lungs and make your soul feel a little lighter.

sometimes you need to experience the most toxic kind of love to know the genuine type when it finally comes around.

Having Second Thoughts: Part 1

(( OOC: Lily played by: @potterdeer )) 

Lily: James and I can’t raise a kid in this mess! Merlin… we’re still trying to raise ourselves! And with Death Eaters everywhere…*takes a deep breath, trying to calm herself* I’m scared Sirius. I’m really scared.

Sirius: I’ll give you that. 

Lily: *sighs* Can you be serious for like… two seconds?

Sirius: *grins*

Lily: *eyes widen*… So help me Sirius Black… if you say one word I will unleash eight months-and-twenty-seven days worth of rage on your arse. 

Sirius: *raises hands in defeat* Alright alright, anyway, all I’m saying is I agree… times are hard right now… 

Sirius: If you’d based your decision on whether or not something shitty was happening in the world, you’d never have a kid.

Lily: James is just… distracting… and well… shit- 

Lily: I don’t know how to do this! I don’t know how to be a mom… Jesus, I barely know how to toast bread without burning it! 

Lily: I know it. He’s a royal cock up. That idiot messes everything up! *begins to hyperventilate*

Sirius: *laughs* Lily! 

Sirius: You’re just psyching yourself out. 

Sirius: You’re going to be an amazing parent. 

Lily: *continues rambling* I’m 20 years old. I’m a kid… with a kid inside of me!

Lily: It was always “Evans this” and “Evans that,” well now look at where we are, James Potter! Look at what you did to me!

Sirius: *snorts*

Lily: Now I’m gonna have him throwing our baby on a broom before he can hold his head up. And you! You’ll be taking him for rides on that…*mumbles* admittedly cool, but extremely dangerous motorbike… and then Peter’s going to drop him… and Remus is going to be my midwife!

Lily: *glares* Sirius. 

Sirius: But I’m telling you Lily… everything is going to be fine. It will be wild and crazy and dysfunctional, but I don’t think there will be a kid in the world who is more loved than your son.

Sirius: … This war isn’t going to last forever.
