Crime writer John Grisham has said America is unjustly jailing too many citizens for viewing child pornography. In an interview with The Telegraph, Grisham, who earned $17 million last year and tied for 6th place in Forbes’ ranking of top-earning authors, attacked the widespread incarceration of those who watch child porn.
“We have prisons now filled with guys my age. Sixty-year-old white men in prison who’ve never harmed anybody, would never touch a child,” he told The Telegraph’s Peter Foster in an interview to promote his latest novel, Gray Mountain.
“But they got online one night and started surfing around, probably had too much to drink or whatever, and pushed the wrong buttons, went too far and got into child porn.”
Grisham, who is well known for legal thrillers such as A Time to Kill and The Firm, has sold more than 275 million copies since his 1989 debut. Grisham first joined Forbes’ top-earning author ranking in 2000, with a $36 million annual paycheck. He has made an estimated $200 million before taxes and fees in the last 14 years.
No one who isn’t a pedophilia “accidentally” “stumbles” across cp, and if somehow they did, they wouldn’t stay there and. Finish.
I don’t know, just some stuff about what would happen after defeating Calamity Ganon + If the spirits of the king and the champions stuck around to oversee the rebuilding of Hyrule/train their successors
First thing Sidon did when he saw Mipha is start crying and try to jump-hug her (he was a lot smaller last time they actually saw one another…)
He ended up going right through her though
but it’s alright because now that Mipha’s spirit is free, she can visit her dad and make sure the rest of the domain is in good shape!
She cried when she saw the statue of her. in fact, there was a lot of crying from everyone because they just really missed her, but it’s good now because she’s more or less back.
She spent days in the throne room with her father, just catching up with all that’s happened in the time that’s passed. Luckily, the domain remained decently similar, and many of her old companions were still there to see her return.
After agreeing that Sidon should take her place as the Zora champion, She’s started teaching him how to pilot Vah Rutah, and he’s learning exceptionally fast. She’s really proud of him
She’s also teaching him some first aid. it’s no Mipha’s Grace but he’s got the basics down!
Sidon is honestly thrilled to be following in his sister’s footseps, but naturally he still has doubts and anxieties about the future. In times where he needs comforting, Mipha is always there to listen to his worries and guide him towards becoming a great king some day
whenever Link and Zelda visit, the whole domain throws a lovely party and feast to welcome them (there may or may not be some arguments over who gets to sit next to link)
The whole domain just really feels like the loving and wonderful place it once was. Mipha spends a lot of her time with Vah Ruta, just like she used to, only now with much more company. Sidon is quite the enthusiastic learner after all
Even though she’s happy to be back, Mipha seems to be the only one of the champions who has acknowledged and accepted the fact that she’s going to have to pass on eventually; her people can’t rely on her forever. She finds comfort in the fact that she’ll at least have said goodbye and prepared them for when that day comes
As soon as he got back he immediately went to find Yunobo; he may or may not have given the poor boy quite the scare
but Yunobo is still thrilled to meet his ancestor!
honestly he’s actually a little afraid that Daruk will be dissapointed in him for not being big, strong, and courageous, even though he isn’t as much of a wimp as he used to be
Daruk is actually overjoyed to find him and the rest of the gorons in such good shape, and he certainly couldn’t be more proud of his great great (?) grandson for all that he’s done to help
Daruk doesn’t want the others to know he’s back just yet, though. it’s gotta be a surprise at just the right moment, he says.
Yunobo really wants to spill the beans, but he doesn’t because Daruk is having a lot of fun appearing to the village children in secret and telling them cool stories about himself
In turn these kids went blabbing to the adults about “how they saw the great Daruk in person”, and of course they had to tell the children that that can’t be true because Daruk isn’t here anymore
it’s around here that Daruk rides Vah Rudania down the mountain and shows up with all the glory he can muster. For him I think it’s go big or go home
Obviously he chooses Yunobo to take the role of champion in his place
Yunobo learns to pilot Rudania a bit faster than Daruk did, and he manages to become even more confident with his success
Daruk praises him as the pride of the gorons for becoming so strong and brave, but also remaining soft and nice
Everyone still uses him as a canonball though
Daruk just spends his time joyfully regaling the whole village and all passing travelers with stories passed down through the gorons for ages. He’s also the best person to go to if you need a really motivating pep-talk.
None of the Rito actually know he’s back, because so far he’s been chilling in Vah Medoh and basking in his glory
He realized he needs someone to shower him in compliments carry on his legacy, so he picked Teba, thinking he was the most suitable choice
of course, since Teba wants to be a great Rito warrior he would never deny the offer of training, and from the great Revali of all people!
Teba quickly finds himself… surprised that the old stories he was told growing up forgot to mention the fact Revali is kind of… well, a jerk.
He’s finding it harder and harder to believe this boisterous guy training him to pilot a DIVINE BEAST was actually a well respected warrior, let alone his hero and inspiration basically
but he can’t deny the training has really paid off; his archery skills have never been this good and he’s never flown so smoothly.
and he might not say it explicitly, but Revali is really proud and he really starts to see Teba as his apprentice
the only other’s in the tribe who know about Revali’s spirit are Saki and Tulin. but there’s been rumours going around the village that if you look hard enough into the night sky, you can see a ghostly figure pulling off some admittedly cool tricks
Revali isn’t the absolute best with children, but he’s taken a liking to Tulin and helps train him when Teba can’t. Tulin started calling him “uncle” and honestly Teba is afraid he’s lost his son’s favour
Link and the princess stop by on occasion to check up on things and provide maintenance to Medoh, Revali still tries to one-up link every time (and fails every time)
at this point, Kass is also back home with his family and has started writing songs of his own. when he has the chance, Revali swoops down to listen to the music. he found most of the songs are about the hero of legend, which actually irritated him a bit, but he was beyond delighted to find Kass has written a whole song dedicated to him and his accomplishments. no he’s not crying, there’s just dust in his eye ok
man Urbosa is happy to be back. she was worried sick about her people, how could she not be? But now she’s gotta pay visit to the new chief and make sure everything’s running smoothly
Now that she’s face to face with Riju, she can really see just how young she is. Urbosa is honestly upset someone who is barely just a teenager got forced into a position of power, and by losing her mother no less. She’s seen similar happen with Zelda, and she’d hoped she wouldn’t have to see it again.
anyway, she struts in Riju’s room as cool as ever. Riju is, understandably, in awe
Urbosa takes it upon herself to see that Riju gets the proper upbringing she deserves to grow up to become a good chief
She doesn’t want to stress her with the whole “becoming the new champion” thing until she’s older and can handle something like that, but Riju has been begging to start learning more about Vah Naboris. Urbosa can’t quite say no, so slowly she’s been teaching her about the divine beast’s history and how it works; she’ll save the actual piloting work for another time.
Every day Riju becomes stronger and more confident as a chief, and it shows! the whole town is very proud of this recent development, but they can’t help but wonder how she managed such progress all of a sudden
Urbosa makes sure Riju gets her break time too, though. Riju was embarrassed at first about her sand seal plushie collection and what Urbosa would think about it, but she was actually delighted in her interest for the animals. long story short, now they spend their time together talking about seals and making bad puns
Urbosa gives really good sand seal surfing advice too; she knew how to ride the dunes better than anyone in her day
on the side, Bularia is afraid she’s being replaced, but can’t be too mad because this is Urbosa we’re talking about here. Her fears are put to rest once the champion actually approaches her just to tell her she’s doing a great job, and that she’s thankful for her service. (she cried)
The king is back too and he made things right with Zelda. he’s super proud of his daughter, and this time he doesn’t make the mistake of not telling her.
since she’s normally out and about with Link, trying to assess the damage and start the repairs on the kingdom, He hangs around what’s left of the castle until they return
Now that the whole apocalypse thing isn’t in the way, he finally has the chance to properly teach Zelda about running a kingdom
Zelda managed to recreate a bond with her father, and she put his advice to good use when restoring Hyrule to it’s former glory
Like he could be on the beach right now, sipping some fruity drink that his brother got for him.
He could be surfing too, feelings the waves’ power underneath of him, only the board keeping him moving.
He could almost feel the ocean breeze in his hair, could almost hear his family laughing around him, their warm embrace keeping him grounded. His mama smiling proudly at him, finally he was the fighter pilot he always dreamed of being. His dad ruffling his hair and congratulating him.
Everyone was so proud of him graduating from the Garrison…
The Garrison? Wasn’t there something else?
He felt like he was grasping at straws, that little inkling of something that he knew he was forgetting. What was it is? All he could remember was the color blue…and then a flash of red.
What did they mean? His favorite color was blue, but what does red have to do anything with it?
there was a request for this one so i hope it lived up to expectations xD i’m thinking of creating another part out of this though. perhaps waking up with GOT7 and mayybe a how you’d fall asleep? idk so please let me know by requesting!here is my masterlist :) have a good day!!
warnings: none :)) words: 1′139
제이비 J A E B U M - if JB was coming to yours for a sleepover he’d be sure to overpack bringing several pillows even though it’s unnecessary - whenever he stays over he always leaves with a hoodie or a t-shirt missing hmm ;) - you savour those quieter evenings with Jaebum and love watching the sunset together. i was going to say music would softly be playing in the background but i think JB would love having your hand in his on your lap as he hums or sings 양심없이 (don’t care) softly aH - and those unnecessary pillows? calls for a pillow fight - his hair would get so fluffy ^.^ - you’d settle for bed quite early and enjoy the comforting silence as you fell asleep resting your head on Jaebum’s shoulders
마크 M A R K - Mark wouldn’t even knock on the door if he was coming to yours since he’s such a frequent visitor - most of the time you just presume he’s staying over when he turns up at your apartment - but when you’ve planned a sleepover with Mark you’d love how you’d notice he was here by the smell of your favourite takeaway downstairs - you’d spend hours playing video games like Overwatch, always dropping funny comments at one another about who’s the better player - you’d sit on his lap as you both held your controller co he could teach you how to become a sweat at the game. he’d kiss you’re hair whenever a new round of the game was starting “ready jagiya?” - to Mark sleeping over felt like a huge escape from tiring dance practises and he’d enjoy watching as you talk with him as you faced each other on the bed - slowly, everything will get quieter and Mark would shuffle closer to you, softly kissing you’re forehead because you’re always the first to go to sleep
잭슨 J A C K S O N - you’re sleepovers are full of instant ramen pots after the one time he tried to cook you a dish that didn’t end up to be edible - sleepovers are the time where Jackson really feels so comfortable and doesn’t try to impress you because everything is so calm and intimate - for a while you’d channel surf but you’re both too busy talking about your day and exchanging stupid jokes to even think about watching the channel: in this case it’s teleshopping - the hours talking on your bed would seem to go incredibly fast in each others company. you’d have both started talking with it being light outside and were still talking in complete darkness when the sun had set - sometimes Jackson would give you his hoodie and you’d go on a short walk to find something other than instant ramen pots - your nights wouldn’t be late or early, together you’d talk about more dreams and ambitions you have before actually fall asleep beside each other to sweet dreams
진영 J I N Y O U N G - i feel like you and Jinyoung wouldn’t plan sleepovers often therefore when you do stay the night at GOT7′s apartment it’d seem more special - respectfully the other guys wouldn’t interfere when you choose to put on a romance movie in the lounge - making a warm drink together became a tradition from when you first started dating. the kitchen would always be left in a mess lets the leader clear it up - both of you love to share popcorn as you watched movies, a huge blanket would cocoon the both of you to feel each other’s warmth - Jinyoung always surprises you with new movies that you’ve never seen before - for 90% of the film though he’s admiring your expressions as they change throughout the movie and sometimes you’d catch him doing so - “what? is there something on my face?” “yeah, let me just-” *throws popcorn at you* - most of the time the couch would be your bed as Jinyoung and you would get so snug where you were laying, you’d end up falling asleep tangled together
영재 Y O U N G J A E - your sleepovers would turn out to be for a straight up week since Youngjae’s schedule is so packed. but when there’s free time you always are with him constantly - sleeping over at each other’s apartments means so much to you since when you were only friends and before debut you’d always be having sleepovers - as friends he’d always intend to sleep on the floor but you insisted that you’d both be comfier if you were in each others arms. for the first few months of being together he’d be sweet and always check if you wanted him to sleep on the floor - i feel like Youngjae would love a relaxing evening with a brightly coloured bath bomb involved - when you were at GOT7′s apartment you would always greet the boys for a while before going off to Youngjae’s room for cuddles
뱀뱀 B A M B A M - he wouldn’t have to worry about bringing anything but himself since everything he owns is practically already at yours. things of his folded in your drawers, glasses lying on your desk and his shoes by your front door - together you would spend a lot of time looking at memes and watching crack videos dabbing contest? - BamBam lowkey loves pamper evenings and he’ll own the overpriced moisturiser that makes you giggle when he rubs it in your skin and down your neck - midnight snacks? BamBam magically reveals food he’s somehow been hiding all night - being in each other’s presence was a big enough excuse not to sleep for thE WHOLE NIGHT “it’s 5:05 Bammie” “we’ll go to bed soon” “how is it 8am already?” “shh we’ll go to bed soon”
유겸 Y U G Y E O M - a toothbrush of Yugyeom’s would already be in your bathroom since he’s always over whenever GOT7 aren’t busy - Yugyeom always finds the excuse to sing, and as soon as the sleepover starts music is blaring as you both are singing as loud as you can and holding you close as you dance on the bed - together you’re professional den makers. but since he’s so tall his feet would stick out the end so he’d end up spooning you - it’d be around 2am when you’d both be incredibly sleepy to the extent where you can barely keep your eyes open - so tired to the point where you’re also loopy and laughing at the strangest things - the quiet noise of music playing will drive you both to sleep just as the suns beginning to rise
Art + Fic because I’ve had this small fic sitting around in my drafts for awhile and felt like publishing it. Thanks to everyone who came to my stream!! Drawing this one was a lot of fun.
“Yeah, I uh…” Nico’s gaze was faraway, and he began to twist at the ring on his index finger. Nico sighed and looked away. “Forget it.”
Hazel stuck out her lower lip. “Nico, what’s been eating at you?” She murmured tenderly. Hazel took a step closer to her brother, and Nico shuffled his feet in response. “Don’t think I haven’t noticed you disappearing again.” She blinked slowly, not looking away from Nico’s dark, hollow eyes. He wouldn’t meet Hazel’s gaze. “C'mon, sit down at least.” She reached out and gave a little tug to Nico’s wrist.
They sat down at the base of a tree and gazed out at Camp Half-Blood’s morning-bustling troopers. They were far enough away, though, that they couldn’t hear more than an occasional pegasus whinny from the stables or giggle of the naiads in the nearby lake. Nico stayed quiet, and the two siblings sat in silence, listening to the stream.
Hazel shuffled through the river rocks at their feet and handed Nico a smooth, flat one that. “Here, watch me.”
Nico tossed his gaze over at Hazel, then at the rock before taking it from her hands. He followed Hazel’s lead when she threw the stone into the river, except Nico managed to skipped his three times.
“If there’s… Something you want to talk about, I’m all ears.” Hazel spoke quietly.
