Why Robert E.O. Speedwagon deserves your love

So today I found myself writing a fucking essay on Speedwagon. Please enjoy.

I feel like people never really- and I mean really- talk about just how strong Speedwagon’s connection to the Joestars is. And it all started because Jonathan Joestar didn’t kick him as hard as he could have.

I’ve always gotten the impression that Jonathan was one of the first people to show Speedwagon genuine kindness; it’s even more meaningful when you realize that Speedwagon initially stereotyped Jonathan as a dumb rich kid. But Jonathan not only held back against Speedwagon when they fought, he stated that his reason for doing so was because he understood that Speedwagon had a family who would mourn his death. Jonathan didn’t want to put them through the same sadness that he himself was going through. In an era where classism was at its highest, a nobleman acknowledged that a street crook had loved ones and had just as much a right to live as he did.

I think that just completely blew Speedwagon’s fucking mind.

Food Magic Tips

Homemade:

  • Roasted bird: Family, unity, and peace
  • American meat and potatoes meal: Earth, grounding, Home
  • Mexican: Celebrations
  • Soup with Crackers: Health, wellness
  • Soup with bread: Warmth, growth
  • Leftovers: Prosperity 
  • Grilled meats: Fire, community
  • Grilled vegetables: Fire, growth, change
  • Indian: Adventure
  • Pizza: youth, sharing
  • Vegetarian: comfort, wholeness
  • Salads vegetable: cleansing
  • Salads other: Community, friendship
  • Chinese: giving, reaching out
  • Pie: magic, sharing, love
  • Cake: Joy, love
  • Cookies: Magic, comfort
  • Surf and Turf: (and I mean any red meat and any seafood) Wealth, prosperity
  • Fish:  Water, freedom, joy
  • Shellfish: water, prosperity, growth
  • Blue Crabs: water, prosperity, Family 
  • Casseroles: unity, sharing
  • Pasta: Comfort, youth 

Take out 

  • Chinese: rest and health
  • Sushi: Water, weath, comfort
  • pho’: Health, wellness
  • Pizza: celebrations
  • Indian:  Love, romance
  • Others usually the same as homemade

I’m sure there are lots more that I have not remembered or are different for you. Share what yours are!

I was searching lolita essential lists(I was inspired by you articl)and I saw someone saying that socks and tights that are even a little bit seethrough are prohibited for lolita. I would like to have your opinion on that please. And also said that shortsocks should be worn only over longsocks and tights and no legskin should ever be seen unless very particular cases(I guess unbearable hot weathe. The writer states that she's lolita since02 and it was written in '14. Nowaday things arent changed

Really this all just sounds like someone’s personal preferences. The part about sheer legwear not being allowed sounds pretty outdated and I don’t know that I’ve ever heard anyone say that no leg skin can ever be seen. In fact, there has been a lot of debate over whether or not it’s okay to wear socks over tights so it’s hard to imagine anyone stating that it’s a universal truth that socks must be worn over tights if they would otherwise show skin.

Here’s a few examples of sheer legwear:

Here’s a few examples of visible legs:

And here’s one from 2002 just to show it isn’t a new thing:

Updated ritual write up

I. Purificatio

[I do this in the shower if its a big ritual otherwise I’ve taken to skipping this]

May this water cleanse my body and soul of any evil. May this water cleanse the evils of the world from me. Purify my mind. Purify my body. Purify my heart.

(Traditionally a bowl of water or a bucket would have been used)

II. Praefatio

Mother Vesta, (adoratio) virginal goddess of the hearth. I ask you, protect me and my kin;blood and not; today,as you protected the Great City in ancient times. I ask for your blessings.

[Light lamp or other flame. Starting charcoal for resin incense would be good right here]

Father Ianus, (adoratio ) Guardian of the doorways. I ask forgiveness for not welcoming you first, for the door is second only to the hearth. I ask that you watch over my kin and myself as we begin this day. I humbly ask that you may bestow your blessing upon us.

(If I am making a libation i typically make it now)
Libation line:
I offer you both this wine/tea/juice/milk/water/etc. So that you might answer my prayers

III. Salutatio

Ave Iupiter! (adoratio ) Iupiter Optimus Maximus, the best and greatest, King of the gods. I humbly ask that you may bestow your blessing upon myself and my kin.

Ave Iuno! (adoratio ) Iuno Moneta, goddess who brings weath and prosperity. May you bestow your blessing upon us.

Ave Mars! (adoratio) Mars Alator,the huntsman. I humbly ask that you give me strength to defend that which I care about. I ask you to bestow your blessing upon us and keep us safe.

Ave Minerva! (adoratio) Minerva Pacifera, bearer of peace. May you bestow your blessings and wisdom upon myself and my kin.

Ave Apollo! (adoratio ) Phoebus Apollo, the bringer of light. I ask that you fill our lives with light and warmth.

Ave Neptunus! (adoratio) Neptunus Invicta, lord of the unconquered seas. I ask for your blessings for myself and my kin.

Ave Mercurius! (adoratio) Mercurius Cissonius, protector of travelers. I humbly ask for your blessings as we travel through our day.

Ave Venus!(adoratio) Venus Verticordia,the changer of hearts. My patron goddess and the one I hold closest to my own heart. I pray to you and ask for your blessings.

Ave Lares! (adoratio ) Those who protect my home. May you bestow your blessing upon my household.

Ave Genius! (adoratio) my most loyal guardian. I ask for your blessing over myself, my kin, and my household.

Ave Penates! (adoratio) Protectors of my pantry. May your blessings fill my home and rid it of any ill spirits.

(One could technically add the Manes/ancestors in here but I do not do much ancestor worship)(if i have a specific request it is said for the relevant god or goddess. If i need to i add in the relevant one)

[light incense and offer food](if i have a hymn i add it in here)

May these offerings please you

IV. Piaculum

Oh gods and goddesses if I have offended you, I ask your forgiveness and hope you are pleased by these offerings

Maybe a cute, short Drabble of merarthur being rescued from rocks by Vivi and Lewis? He doesn't know or trust these humans yet, so he's highly defensive and scared at first.

I’m basing Mer!Arthur’s design off of @ectoimp‘s and @arthur-tristan-kingsmen‘s design of him. 

The vicious wind and rain howled around the car, making it shake. Vivi was almost afraid that they’d be blown off the road, and on a mountainside road such as this, that would mean certain death.

“Wow…” Lewis couldn’t lie and say he wasn’t a little nervous himself. “I knew Florida weather could be bad but I didn’t think it would be like this.” It wasn’t raining very hard, but the wind was making the drops land hard on the windshield. Lewis could see all the trees nearly coming loose from the ground.

“Just our luck that we came here during a hellish storm, huh?” Vivi grinned a little, and Lewis had to laugh.

“Yeah, sounds about right. I wish the client would have mentioned that little tidbit.” But at least it all worked out with helping the spirit of their client’s uncle move on, and the pay was nice too. Lewis would forgive the little miscommunication this time.

They turned a corner and Vivi smiled as she leaned against the passenger side door. The ocean was wild with waves and even here it was really cool to watch them. She had seen the ocean only a few times in her life and it always astounded her. She had always talked to Lewis about going scuba diving at one point when they had the chance.

Not in this weather though. She was glad there weren’t any boats out there either. Nobody would be crazy enough to go out there in this weathe-

Vivi’s eyes widened and she quickly sat up in her seat. “Lewis stop the car!”

“What-?”

“Quickly!”

The expanse seems really interesting (you had me at woc leads!!) but what's it about/what's the premise?

OHHHH, YOU MADE ME SO HAPPY BY ASKING ABOUT THE EXPANSE!!!

The Expanse is a delicious mix of science fiction, noir detective story, and political thriller. Basically, it’s 200+ years in the future and humans now live all over our solar system. Earth and Mars are the two superpower planets and are locked in a cold war. Much of the show takes place in an asteroid belt where there are huge mining and trading stations, featuring the stark clash in classes between the relatively rich Earth and Mars citzens and the poverty-stricken working class in the Belt (where water, food and air are in scarce supply).

Okay, I just made it sound really dry and boring. Let me try again…

The story so far follows three parallel tracks: a noir mystery on Ceres Station as a cop named Miller tries to find a woman named Julie Mao, who is missing under increasingly mysterious circumstances.

Julie Mao:

Meanwhile four crew members of an ice-hauling freighter find themselves plunged into an incredibly dangerous situation in deep space where they must rely on their teamwork, wits and expertise to save their lives, and solve a mystery that has many elements in common with Miller’s.

Back on good ol’ Earth, Chrisjen Avrasala, U.N. Deputy Undersecretary of Executive Administration, attempts to avert war that suddenly threatens to flare between Earth, Mars and the Belt.

Reasons to watch The Expanse:

  • Brilliant worldbuilding. The viewer feels fully immersed in this large and complex world. It feels completely real and is fascinating.
  • Diverse cast. At least half of the cast characters, MAJOR characters, are people of color. This is a multicultural, multilingual society and the cast represents it well. The showrunners have been clear that they’re committed to racial and ethnic inclusion. There is also a canon gay character and definite evidence that this universe is not one where GLBTQ people are erased.

My love, Naomi Nagata:

  • AMAZING effects. The budget for this show must be enormous.
  • Features fact-paced action but doesn’t neglect to slowly unfold its characters and plot.
  • An interesting look at what can happen to society when weath and privilege are not distributed equitably. Our future, most likely.
  • Intelligent writing that does’t spoon feed the watcher information but instead lets everything slowly sink in.
  • It’s an all Earthling universe so no aliens with doofy prosthetic foreheads a la Star Trek.
  • The series is based on a series of books by James S. A. Corey, so the showrunners aren’t just making it up as they go along (*cough* BSG *cough*)
  • If you enjoyed Blade Runner, Alien/Aliens, and/or Battlestar Galactica, you’ll love this.

tl;dr: WATCH IT, WATCH IT, WATCH IT. It’s available on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play and Xfinity On Demand.
