So it’s spirit week at school, aka homecoming week, and for those of you non-’mericans, basically everyday there’s a different theme that you have to dress to accordingly. Today was alphabet day, meaning you had to dress up as something that began either with the first or last letter of your name. So if your name is Anna, you could be an Angel. If your last name is Johnson, you could be a jellybean or whatever floats your booty. This one guy whose name is Payton went as patriotic and
Claws sharp as blades
Eyes acute as tinkling bells,
Hunted rabbits over the plain received high praise
For no reason
Soared into serene clouds,
I must not again be held on the emperor’s shoulder.
The Eagle Away From the Oversleeve (鷹離鞲) by Xue Tao (薛涛).
Among the most famous poets of the Tang dynasty, Xue Tao was the daughter of a government official in Chang’an, the capital of the Tang dynasty. Registered as a young woman with a guild of courtesans and entertainers, Xue Tao was able to obtain a literary education, spurring her career as a poet. Attracting the attention of royal officials, Xue Tao was made the official hostess of military officer Wei Gao (韋皋). Through her service, Xue Tao became lifelong friends with politician and poet Yuan Zhen (元稹).
Xue Tao’s poems were available in The Brocade River Collection, and about a hundred of her poems have survived to the present day, making her the most prolific female poet of the Tang dynasty. Her poems range in subject material, tone, and style, offering a description of the diversity of her thought and experience with traditional Chinese poetry.
Hi!! uuummm so its my birthday tomorrow :D and im dying to know.. how would the game's characters celebrate the MC's birthday with them??
Asra would take them on a long journey without telling them where they were going (but would keep them entertained with riddles) to a scenic oasis, where he would pretend to drown so MC has to dive into the water and at the bottom is a magic flute that can summon a swarm of bees (their favorite!)
Nadia would throw a tastefully brief festival in their honor. MC would be lavished with pampering (by professional pamperers) from dawn to dusk and when the clock struck midnight, they would be presented with seven bejeweled eagles (one for every day of the week)
Julian would meet them for dinner in a shady tavern, bring them heaping plates of food and offer unsolicited advice for the coming year. About halfway through the meal he would have to scramble out the back door because law enforcement arrived on the scene but he’d put it an order in the kitchen to bring them something for dessert
Lucio would declare the day a holiday and call it Day of the Beloved One of Lucio. They would have to sit uncomfortably still while a master artiste painted their portrait and a mile-long line of peasants laid gifts at their feet.
Muriel doesn’t celebrate birthdays because time is a human construct
Portia would throw a big loud party with a barbecue :D

Laying on the floor, you were spread eagle. “You’ve been pacing for like half an hour. Quit it.” You groaned, not even opening your eyes. The sound of his boots were echoing in the small room, driving you insane.
“Because laying on the floor is doin’ so fuckin’ much?” He asked, glancing down at you.
“You’re using more energy, and you’re gonna get hungry quicker.” You shrugged. “Relax. If you know how.” By the look that you were giving him, he could tell that was a challenge. Not to be the one to back down, he sat down, back against a wall. “Let’s see how long you can last.” You smirked, rolling to your side, propping yourself up on an elbow.
He smirked right back. “Oh, I can fuckin’ last, sweetheart.” His voice was low, and dripping with lust.
Yo guys we just wrapped on our video for Open Mike Eagle last week. The film turned out really well, we’re super proud of the output of all the work we invested. It would mean a lot to us if you look out for more news when it’s gonna drop on our social media, and other places when more information is around and available.
Imagine sitting and doing your work at your laptop, when you hear a faint sigh. You look over the top of your screen to see your boyfriend Taron lazily playing with his hair and staring off into the distance. He glanced over at you, and let his hand fall into his lap.
“When are you going to finish?” he whined, his Welsh accent thickening with each word.
“Oh for god sake fine!” you replied, shutting your laptop and moving to be sat next to him.
“Yes!” he cried, slinging his arm around your shoulder and pressing play.
As the titles rolled you soon realised what film you were watching.
“Really Taron? Wolverine again?”
“What can I say? After working with Hugh, I think I’ve fell a little bit in love with him” he said, resulting in a swift hit to the chest from you. “Of course though darling, you’re the only real love of my life,” he added, kissing you softly on the forehead as you snuggled into him to watch the film for at least the fifteenth time that week.
