vain life


Favourite asian dramas’ OTPs: Wang So and Hae Soo

Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo

“The late King Taejo’s last words were that life is fleeting. It is all short and in vain. He said that life is so short. But I think that he was wrong. You and I are together like this, so how it could be in vain?” 

“If we had met in another world and another time I was thinking how great that would have been. If only that could be… I wouldn’t fear anything. I could freely… Truly, I could freely love you all I wanted.”

Life is a Soup Bowl

I am drowning in a soupçon
of a flood of emotions:
cayenne peppery anger,
salty lachrymose,
gingery guilt,
chunky disillusionment,
oniony restlessness,
and smouldering in the steam
of my own bad taste.

Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo

Wang So: The late king Taejo’s last words were that life is fleeting. It is short and in vain. He said that life is so short. But I think that he was wrong. You and I are together like this, so how could it be in vain? I feel nervous whenever you have that facial expression. I feel like you’re going to leave me and go far away.  What are you afraid of? What are you hiding?  

Hae Soo: It’s just… I feel anxious every day while I live here. Every step that I take… I feel I must be cautious, like I’m walking on thin ice.  sometimes, I feel like I cannot breathe.

Wang So: even though you have me? you still feel that way?

Hae Soo:  If we had met in another world and at another time, I was thinking how great that would have been. If only that could be…I would’t fear anything. I could freely…Truly, I could freely love you all I wanted. 

Wang So: If we are not from the same world…I will find you. My…Soo.

does the fact that gaston would be the hero if he were to be in any other movie keep you up at night like it does me? i mean, he's a skilled fighter & hunter, is loved by the town, sees a potential threat to the town & goes to eliminate it -- even if he's a bit blinded by rejection from belle, but still. babyboy is a paragon & deserves a chance at redemption or at least more of a look into his character

i think about it every day, anon. every day.

I need Thee every hour, most gracious Lord;
No tender voice like Thine can peace afford.

I need Thee, O I need Thee;
Every hour I need Thee;
O bless me now, my Savior,
I come to Thee.

I need Thee every hour, stay Thou nearby;
Temptations lose their power when Thou art nigh.

I need Thee every hour, in joy or pain;
Come quickly and abide, or life is vain.

I need Thee every hour; teach me Thy will;
And Thy rich promises in me fulfill.

I need Thee every hour, most Holy One;
O make me Thine indeed, Thou blessed Son.

-Annie S. Hawks, in Hymns and Tunes for Home Worship (New York: James R. Osgood, 1871)

Just cause your days aren’t filled with tasks doesn’t mean that your day was lived in vain. Life is still meaningless with or without endeavors.

My main account is very Islamic based and it is for a reason. There was a time when someone told me how they benefitted from my blog and other like that, and it wasn’t your normal ‘your blog really benefited me’ rather it was a lot deeper. But yh that’s what made me want to stick to my blog so that bi'ithnillaah I could have that influence on more people to come.

But on this account, I tend to express a lot of the vain aspects of my life… for example that series i was promoting…Allaahul musta'aan 😔its filthy and I know very well that it is but im so used to ignoring this, that I don’t see it being heavy or even worthy (don’t know if that’s the correct terminology) of a sin so don’t see it as any harm and therefor post it online as such.

Then I realise that we were not prone to error, no one is so yh, idk what I was trying to say but all I wanted to say was I hope whoever you are, that you continue to advise me and let me know when I slip up. Let us be like a family who care about each other’s akhirah (sorry if that’s a bit deep but you know what I’m trying to get across) and continue advising one another for His sake.

Imagine, someday in the future, when RWBY comes to an end…

Teams RWBY, JNPR, SSSN, etc have become full-fledged hunters. They’re adults now. They’ve been on many adventures and saved many people.

Team RWBY ends up having a final showdown against some really tough big bad, possibly even an army. During the course of this showdown, Ruby makes a big move that opens the way for them to win, but the price is her life. Maybe some kind of Red Like Roses Part 3 song is playing in the background, referencing Summer’s line from RLR Part 2: “But baby please don’t do what I did. I don’t want you to waste your life in vain!”

The series ends with an epilogue.

Weiss has taken over the Schnee Dust Company and is running it much better than her father.

Blake has stopped wearing her bow and is the leader of a faunus rights organization.

Weiss and Blake have begun working together to start the process of repairing relations between humans and faunus.

Earlier in the series, Yang found her mother and has been getting to know her (for better or worse).

Cut to a scene with Yang walking through snow, carrying a bouquet of red roses. She reaches her destination, stops, and starts talking.

“Hey, Ruby. They held a ceremony the other day. It was great and all, but… it would’ve been better if you were there. I wish you could’ve seen it. You’re a hero. Here… these are for you.”

She kneels down, sets the bouquet on the ground, and stands back up. Weiss and Blake step forward to stand by her side, and she says, “We miss you already.”

The camera changes to show a stone altar inscribed with Ruby’s name and symbol, next to Summer’s from the Red Trailer. The bouquet of red roses is in front of her altar, and a bouquet of white roses is in front of Summer’s. A red petal and white petal float off into the sky, the camera following them. Transition to a morning sky over Beacon. The camera pans down to show a statue of Team RWBY. Closeup on the statue of Ruby, the camera pans down to its feet, and someone places a coffee mug there.

Ozpin steps back, holding a mug of his own. “Cream and five sugars,” he says, “I heard that’s how you like it.” He sips his coffee, staring up at the statue.
