where's ash

anonymous asked:

oo girl can you do one where ash decides to make you dinner and treats you with so many things and right at 12:00 am he proposes? Your writing is amazing😍💙👌

Yes of course! And thank you for saying that about my writing, it was so sweet.  

I came home from a hard day at work late. I would usually get down and seven but I didn’t arrive home until eight. All I wanted was to curl up in bed with Ashton and sleep the night away. Sighing, I walked up to our home door and opened it. When I walked in, the kitchen was right there, and dark. It was candlelit with a home made meal sat on the table. I dropped my things off and looked around the room.

“Ashton?” I called, “What is all of this?” He came out wearing a nice button up shirt and his skinny jeans. “I made you dinner. I figured after work you’d like a nice evening to relax and enjoy yourself.” He smiled and pulled out a chair for me to sit on.

I smiled at him and took the seat. “Thanks Ash, that’s super sweet of you. And sorry I was late home, I got held up at work.” I said as he sat down next to me and served out the food. “It’s fine, don’t worry about anything tonight.”

He prepared steak, mashed potatoes, mac'n'cheese, and bought some sparkling apple cider. We ate and talked about each of our days until it was about 9:15. “Thank you Ash so much for this wonderful dinner. I’ll clean up now and you can head to bed if you’d like?“ I offered and started to put the dishes in the sink before he came up and grabbed my arm to stop me.

"No, no babe, I got this, just go sit in the living room, because I’m not finished yet.” He said as I stared at him in confusion. “Ok.” I said uneasily. I sat down on the living room couch and waited for Ashton to come in too. When he came in, he told me to close my eyes so he could get something.

I closed my eyes hesitantly and waited for him to come back. “Ok, Y/n, you can open your eyes now.” He said gently as I slowly opened my eyes. I gasped as I saw a bouquet of flowers in his hand and two tickets to the new All Time Low concert.

“Ashton, this is so amazing I said grabbing the flowers to smell them. I stared at the tickets and set the flowers down. I pulled him into a hug and wrapped my arms around his neck. "Thanks Ash, this was beautiful.” I murmured into his skin. I pulled away and sat back down on the couch.

“Come on, let’s just watch a movie babe.” He sat down next to me and put a movie in. It was late, around 10:30 when we got settled with popcorn, and were all cuddled up. We played the movie and right before midnight, he hit pause and got up.

“Ash, where are you going?” I asked when he stood up. “I’ll be right back I have to get something.” He said as he raced up the steps. When he came back down, he got on one knee and looked up at me. I looked over to the clock and it read 11:59.

“Y/n, I’ve had an amazing three years with you being your boyfriend. I love you so much, and I never want to leave you. You are my favorite thing to wake up to and the only thing I dream about when I go to sleep. You know exactly how to make me feel better when I’m down and you’re so kind to everyone you know. I love you, and you love me, so, Y/n, will you marry me?”

Right then, at exactly midnight, Ashton and I were engaged. We were happy, and we were together. Just like we would be for the rest of our lives. 
 

when I see people post positive things about Liam and Cora

then they say “I hope they’re more interesting than Kaiden and Ashley!!1”

The Birth of the Fifth Sun, the Mexica (Aztec) sacred narrative which tells of the birth of our current sun. The paintings are posted in order, and follow the progress of the narrative told below.

14.1 It is said that when the earth was still dark, when there was yet no warmth, nor day, nor light, the Teteo came together at Teotihuacan to take counsel, and there they lit the Spirit Fires, great blazes set atop the twin pyramids of the sacred city. For four years they burned.  “Come here, oh Teteo! Who shall carry the sun? Who shall bear it? The warming, the dawning? The burning fire? The celestial Light? Who shall leap into the Spirit Fire?” Than forth stepped Four Flint, Tecuciztecatl, Our Lord of Snails, and he cried out, “Oh Teteo! Indeed, it shall be I!” Yoaltecuhtli and Tlaloc stepped forward, “You are one who must keep the sky and the earth.”
14.2 “And yet, another is needed,” said the Teteo. “Who shall be the other?” Yet the Teteo were frightened, and none among them stepped forth. They took counsel with one another, and summoned Nanahuatzin, The Pimpled Lord, the Crippled One, and summoned him to the counsel. Tonacatecuhtli and Xiuhtecuhtli stepped forward and said to him, “You are the one who must keep the sky and the earth.” Many tears did Nanahuatzin shed, for he felt unequal to the task, he, the worthless invalid.
14.3 The Teteo Nanahuatzin and Tecuciztecatl began their fasts, their sacrifices, in preparation for the Spirit Fire, the God Oven. Tecuciztecatl prepared himself with precious things. His fasting-ropes were of quetzal feathers, and his ritual branches of cotinga plumes. His grass heart was of woven gold, his incense of the finest copal. He did not offer his own blood, his own Yollia, but instead offered maguey thorns and  lancets made of coral. Resplendent he looked, shining and beautiful, as he made his sacrifices.
14.4 Nanahuatzin, the Crippled Lord, the Teotl in poverty, formed his fasting-rope of grass and paper. His ritual branches were made of green grass and green reeds, tied in three bundles, bound bundles of nine each. His bloodletting spine was of bone, well reddened with his own blood. His only incense were his scabs, twisted off and cast into the fire.
For four days they fasted, for four days they drew blood and meditated their sacred actions, there upon their respective pyramids. When they had completed their days of sacrifice, they burned their ritual branches, their bloodletting instruments, in the sacred fire. They were become slaves. They were become Gods.
14.5 To Tecuciztecatl, the gathered Teteo gave him his egret headdress, his elegant attire of quetzal and jade.
14.6 But Nanahuatzin was attired only in paper, only in cloth of Maguey. They painted the Teteo in white, they chalked them, and adorned them in eagle-down feathers.
15.1 Tecuciztecatl, as the senior Lord, approached the fire first, to leap into its heart. The fire roared, it crackled, it seared his eyes. He grew faint and afraid. He hesitated. He could not bring himself to leap into the fire.Than Nanahuatzin, the Crippled Lord, seeing the terror of the other, walked forward. Bravely he walked, slowly, so as to feel its heat. And when he reached the Spirit Fire, the God Oven, he leapt into its heart and was consumed.
Tecuciztecatl grew ashamed, and found his spirit, and he too leapt into the Spirit Fire, but lacking the bravery of Nanahuatzin, he fell only into its embers and ashes, where he, too, was consumed.
The Jaguar and the Eagle were among the company of the Teteo, and both leapt over the Spirit Fire. They were singed, they were burned, in its tongues of flame, and thus acquired their spots and dark feathers. For their bravery they were made warriors, ever to serve the sun.

16.1 When, in this way, the two Teteo had thrown themselves into the God Oven, when they had burned to ash, the Teteo sat awaiting to learn from whence they would emerge. Long they waited, meditating in the darkness, when all at once everywhere it became red, everywhere the light of dawn, the reddening of dawn. The Teteo knelt down, facing each of the four directions, to see from whence the sun would emerge at this first dawning of the Fifth Sun. The Teteo fell into confusion; they turned in circles, they faced all directions. The traditional orations, the traditional words, did not bring clarity to the Teteo. Some thought he would emerge from Mictlán, the Place of the Dead, and faced North, to find him there. Some thought The Place of Women, and faced the West, some, The House of Thorns, and faced the South, for the light of the dawning encircled all things, and confusion reigned.
Yet some of the Teteo faced the East, the Place of Light, and cried out, “Already, is he there, already, his light illuminates his Eastern Palace! Behold, he is emerging!” Those who waited there, who pointed there, were Quetzalcoátl and his nagual Xolotl. There too was Our Lord Anahuatl, the Red Tezcatlipoca, and the Mimixcoa without number. And there awaited four women; Tiacapan, Teicu, Tlacoyehua, and Xocoyotl.
And as the sun rose, his light spread like the red Cochineal dye throughout the East, his dazzling brilliance was such that he could not be faced. He shone, he illuminated, and light came into this world. And afterward, Tecciztecatl, too, arose from the Place of Light, also golden and shining, impossible to behold; a second sun.
16.2 And the Teteo said; “How can this be? Shall there be two suns, who both shall follow the same road, who both shall shine in the same way? The brave Nanahuatzin and the unworthy Tecciztecatl?” And so, Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli, The Morning Star, snatched a rabbit from the earth and flung it in the face of Tecciztecatl. Thus, was his face wrecked and his light dimmed, and he fell into the ashes.
17.1 The Teteo declared, “No longer shall he be known as Nanahuatzin, the Pimpled Lord, the Crippled God. He is Tonatiuh, Our Lord the Sun!” And Tonacatecuhtli and Tonacacihuatl, the Lord and Lady of Our Flesh, Our Sustenance, rose to his place at the center of the sky. They bathed and anointed him. They sat him in his Quechol chair. They adorned his head with the butterfly crest, the red-leather thong.
17.2 But he would not move from his place. Four days he remained at the Zenith, at the center of the sky. “Why does he not move?” asked the Teteo, and they sent the Falcon of the Obsidian Blade to ask why he was immobile in the sky.
“I hunger!” replied Tonatiuh. “I need their blood, their precious color, their Yollotl, to find the strength to move across the sky. I need the blood of those who sent me to the Spirit Fire!”
17.3 When the Falcon returned to the gathered Teteo and gave them his message, they were much saddened and afraid. Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli grew angry and cried out, “I will shoot him! He must not stay immobile in the sky!” But his arrows could not reach the sun. Yet the sun, from his lofty perch, shot down his own arrows, his shafts of flame, and they burned the body of The Morning Star, and with the Nine Layers covered up his face, and transformed him into Itztli, the Teótl of the Obsidian Blade, of cold, frost, snow, and judgement.
18.1 Quetzalcoátl raised his eyes sadly to the sky, and spoke to the gods at Teotihuacan. “May he be revived. May we all die!” And the gods mournfully submitted to his will. And so with the Sacred Flint Blade he slit the throats of the gathered Gods; of Titlacahuan, and Huitzilopochtli, and the Goddesses Xochiquetzal, Yapalliicue, and Nochpalliicue. But Xolotl, the god of twins and monstrosities and who is the sprit double of Quetzalcoátl, did not want to die. He fled Quetzalcoátl and his terrible blade. He wept so that his eyes fell from their sockets. “Send me not to the blade, oh Gods! Let me not die!”
18.2 He fled, and Death quickly followed. He followed him to the fields of young corn, were Xolotl transformed himself into the young maize with two stalks in order to hide from Death. He became the Xolotl of the Field. But he was seen by the eyes of Death there among the corn, from whom nothing may be hidden, and so he ran to the Maguey field, and there he turned himself into the double maguey, the Maguey Xolotl. But there too was he seen by the eyes of Death, and so he escaped to the lake, and there turned himself into the Axolotl, the lake-salamander. But there was no more escape, and Death caught him, and Quetzalcoátl slit his throat, amid his tears and lamentations.
19.1 The blood of the Gods rose to the heavens and Tonatiuh drank the sacred strength of their Yollia, on the day Nahui Ollin, Four Movement, the sacred name and destiny of the Fifth Sun. Yet still he could not move, still he could not follow his path.
20.1 But Quetzalcoátl, who had shed the blood of the Gods, who had released the divine force of their Yollia, grew strong and straight. He ran, and blew lightly in the face of the sun, and so pushed him along his path, and than slit his own throat, that his blood and divine Yollia might make the revolutions of the heavens eternal.
Thus it was that as the sun was entering into the earth again, into the open jaws of Our Mother, Tlaltecuhtli, the moon arose from the ashes into which he had fallen, and there at the crossroads met the Tzitzimime, the Star Demons, and the Coleletin, and they detained him a while, and dressed him in rags. He who would have been the sun, who would have been clothed in splendor. And thus it is that on the day Four Movement night and day came into being, and the deaths of the gods established the covenant of sacrifice with men.

Dear Giovanni, I have no idea if this has come up in the past but what your thoughts on the only three active members of your organization visiting each region and yet not once did they set up a base? I'm talking about Jesse, James and Meowth.

I believe they have had to replace the actor for the main character several times now, due to them growing out of the role. There was public outcry every time.

In college I had a physics professor who wrote the date and time in red marker on a sheet of white paper and then lit the paper on fire and placed it on a metallic mesh basket on the lab table where it burned to ashes. He asked us whether or not the information on the paper was destroyed and not recoverable, and of course we were wrong, because physics tells us that information is never lost, not even in a black hole, and that what is seemingly destroyed is, in fact, retrievable. In that burning paper the markings of ink on the page are preserved in the way the flame flickers and the smoke curls. Wildly distorted to the point of chaos, the information is nonetheless not dead. Nothing, really, dies. Nothing dies. Nothing dies.

  18. Have a specific space in your home (a shelf, windowsill, table, etc) for the faeries to “live in”, and a spot to leave gifts for them (mine is in the garden)
  19. Let a portion of your garden grow wild
  20. Wind chimes hung in a window attract sprites

  24. Crushed clover rubbed on eyelids may give one faerie sight
  25. Give back to the earth, for what you take. Pick up trash you find in nature, try to use less plastics, don’t waste food, compost your fruits/vegatables/herbs for rich soil.
  26. The best times to see faeries are dawn, dusk and midnight (the in-between times)
  27. Hang glass, crystals, and beads in your window for the sun to shine through; faeries like glittery & sparkly things.
  28. Wearing a crown of elder twigs on may eve will enable you to see faeries
  29. Go out and just sit in nature, simply enjoying it. You can also practice sensing sprites
  30. While it is dangerous to enter a faerie ring, running around it exactly nine times clockwise under a full moon will allow you to see and hear the faeries dancing inside it (note though, the faeries may take offense if this done on Beltane or Samhain)

  37. Read real life accounts of people’s encounters with faeries
  38. Read traditional fairie lore
