we won that battle



↳ “You’re staring at our Pussycat ears, which is rude…but let me break it, and them, down for you. The Pussycats are building a brand. Creating a signature look, okay? We’re telling a story. Last year we won Rockland County’s Battle of the Bands. This year we’d like to build on that success. Continue telling our story with songs we write.”

Chrom vs. Ephraim

I’m not sure how many of you realize this but we are making history here. This battle won’t be forgotten, it might as well be the most balanced gauntlet fight we’ll ever have, who knows (it’s crazy to imagine two randomly gathered sides got this balanced).

Also Twitter is full of pictures with epic Chrom vs. Ephraim fights and I just have a feeling this event will become a classic to the fandom because two loved princes going all out against each other in such a tight fight, how fanservice is that.

Whichever way this ends, we’ve done something extraordinary, #teamChrom and #teamEphraim. I’m proud of all of us. And we all should be proud we are in the right teams at the right time.


Then came our day trip to Venice, where the price tags on everything from t-shirts to food/wine (mostly food/wine) mocked our shockingly apparent lack of money. Venice was absolutely gorgeous and the canal filled streets certainly lived up to the hype everyone has heard above. Unfortunately, such beauty comes with a price, and prices are something broke exchange students don’t cope so well with. So with empty stomachs and tired eyes, we tried to enjoy Venice as best as we could (a lot of dancing kept us energized. ps we had a dance battle with a group from Switzerland and the police shut us down, but hey we won the dance battle so) 


Well, we’re still here. After all of the bullshit mistakes, you’re still in one piece. It has to mean something. We won’t see it all of the time. Our battle– the one in your head, it’s never an easy one. How many tear drops did you name after him? How much scars do you have from becoming more of your own? The pain you feel from others… you wanted to control it. Let’s turn something abstract into something visible. I mean love is a strong word, so you always mean it. You probably cried all day one time– those emotions… the raw element of your heart slowly pushed poetry into just more than thoughts. When sound can’t be heard and no one listens. When you run out of ways to tell someone that you care for them. You learn to try from a new angle. The written word. The poetry composed from broken glass and loose ends. It’s beautiful, isn’t it? The human soul and its need to express. You know… that’s why I try everyday. I’m not on earth to just survive. I’m here to thrive and as long as you’re around… I know I can do this.

The heart
is such a violent organ.
Just when we think
the battles are over and won,
it compels us to parade
blades out of tight embraces.

the legend of magnus bane
chapter 1: of battles won and false coronations

rating: m. pairing: magnus bane/alec lightwood.

summary: a robin hood au. this is the story of magnus bane, a knight of the king’s army turned heroic outlaw when he returned home from a pointless war to find a country ravaged by taxes, poverty and famine. this is the story of alec lightwood, a knight of the court who watched his life become a nightmare when darkness plunged itself into the very center of his family. this is the story of a merry band of outlaws fighting against the corruption gripping their country. a plot uncovered, a search for a true heir, and two men slowly but surely falling in love.

The Riven Crown: Chapter Twenty-Four

‘We may have won the battle, but I fear the war with winter is just beginning.’

The aftermath of war is no laughing matter. Those who died must be honoured, those who are wounded must be healed, and those who remain need food and clothing, peace and sanctuary. With Thorin’s life hanging in the balance, it is up to Bilbo and the rest of the Company to rule the rag-tag remnants of Erebor in his place.

Then there is the matter of the gold…

Can Bilbo save both king and kingdom, or is Erebor destined to fall deeper into ruin?

All You Fascists Bound To Lose

I’m gonna tell you fascists
You may be surprised
The people in this world
Are getting organized
You’re bound to lose
You fascists bound to lose

Race hatred cannot stop us
This one thing we know
Your poll tax and Jim Crow
And greed has got to go
You’re bound to lose
You fascists bound to lose.

All of you fascists bound to lose:
I said, all of you fascists bound to lose:
Yes sir, all of you fascists bound to lose:
You’re bound to lose! You fascists:
Bound to lose!

People of every color
Marching side to side
Marching ‘cross these fields
Where a million fascists dies
You’re bound to lose
You fascists bound to lose!

I’m going into this battle
And take my union gun
We’ll end this world of slavery
Before this battle’s won
You’re bound to lose
You fascists bound to lose!


We are here to make a better world. No amount of rationalization or blaming can preempt the moment of choice each of us brings to our situation here on this planet. The lesson of the ‘60s is that people who cared enough to do right could change history. We didn’t end racism but we ended legal segregation. We ended the idea that you could send half-a-million soldiers around the world to fight a war that people do not support. We ended the idea that women are second-class citizens. We made the environment an issue that couldn’t be avoided. The big battles that we won cannot be reversed. We were young, we were self-righteous, reckless, hypocritical, brave, silly, headstrong and scared half to death.

And we were right. I regret nothing.
