will guide you home

space and time are only other battles
only the new challenge 
we must face in the pursuit of loving each other


darling, we’ve already fought fate
we’ve already torn down mountains 
and raised a generation 


we’ve already battled myths
we’ve already rewritten the legends
in our quest to save each other


so who’s trying to say that I won’t see you again?
the universe? the stars? logic? reason? fate?
we already we know that when it comes to us
the course of the constellations shift at our command


so yes, I’ll look at where I know you are
I’ll have hope that ignites the beating of your heart in my chest
and every single day I live without you
I’ll let your echoes guide me home

—  Together by Abby S

Ally is not a word you can take, it is not something you stab your flag into and declare you have earned because you found it. Ally is a word given. A word that is not trustworthy if it only comes from your own mouth.

Ally is a passport; you may travel in these spaces but you must follow the law of the land. The word has no meaning if it has not been approved by the proper authorities. And the authorities are us.

We are citizens of this land and we continue to live here when you have gone home. You can read every travel guide, and know every intersection in our roads, but if you are not a citizen you are a visitor. 

Ally is not a ticket, a pass to sit down and enjoy the show. Activism is not a spectator sport, you are either playing or you are on the opposing team. If you want to enjoy the game you are going to have to shoulder some tackles for the players. Because we have bruises all over our bodies and you are wearing a suit of armor.  

Ally comes with a class. We are the teachers and you are the student. You will listen and will only participate when you are called upon. If you want to be an ally you have to first realize that your voice is not the most important one in the room. You are there to listen, and we will know if you didn’t do the reading. 

Ally is not a part of a gift bag you get for coming to the party. If you want the word you must come to the funerals as well as the parades.  

The word comes with work. It comes with struggle, inconvenience, and time. Ally is something you do. Not someone you are. It is a job, not a title. 

So thank you for your application. We will review it and get back to you in a couple of weeks.

Why Embracing Emotional Distress is the Best Medicine Sometimes

Much of our mental suffering is caused by our overwhelming attempt to avoid it. We think experiencing any sort of anxiety is a threat to our existing, but psychology studies have proven that one learns from struggle. One becomes a better human being through heartache. Let us explain with the science behind this theory..

Derek x Reader

Requested By @dontyouwishyouhadlove


You smiled at the little gift Derek had sent, it was a picture of the two of you, a few Hale siblings and cousins were squished in as well, you could never remember all their names. It was just like Derek to add to your hoard of photos, in fact you wondered if he sent you the pictures so they’d survive, he was forever bending or accidentally washing photos and bits of paper so it wouldn’t surprise you.

When you pulled up in the drive your front door swung open and your brother launched himself down the porch so he could yank open the door.

“I’ve missed you so much!” Scott sighed and you chuckled as you ruffled his hair.

“You saw me at gradation.” You chuckled and he rolled his eyes.

“Yeah and then we’ve had to wait for months so you could finish up there and come back home.” You groaned as he yanked you out of the car and into the house.

@midori-n mentioned the boys putting up those star stickers together and my mind went even further and this is just disgustingly fluffy oh my goodness

EDIT: THIS NOW HAS ART BY @nappotuna which you can find HERE. Go check it out because it’s the most adorable thing ever.


Yusuke is tall.

Actually, he’s not that tall. He’s only got a couple inches on Akira, but two inches goes a long way when they’re trying to reach the beams of the attic.

They had visited the planetarium today. Yusuke had presented him with stars to put in his room, a memento of their time together, and then, in typical Yusuke fashion, had developed a sudden urge for Leblanc’s coffee and accompanied him home. Now, they’re both peeling the backings off the little stars and sticking them up around his room.

Except Akira can’t reach. There’s the chair; he could end the struggle in the few short seconds it would take to carry the chair over, but it’s become a battle of wills now. It’s futile, okay, he knows, but maybe if he just… stretches… a bit… further

“You’re never going to reach it,” Morgana comments, right as Akira loses his balance from stretching too far on his tiptoes.

Yusuke steadies him, a solid hand against his shoulder, a chuckle and a smile. “Would you like me to help?”

“Yeah.” Akira huffs, but he is smiling too as he hands the star to Yusuke. “Thanks.”

“You could have just gotten the chair,” Yusuke says, almost a tease, and effortlessly presses the star where Akira had been meaning it to go.

“Yeah, yeah. I heard Morgana the first time.”

“It’s just the truth!” Morgana fires back, and licks a paw to swipe over his ear. “You could have had this all done by now.”

“It’s fine. I have nothing else to do. Besides, I wasn’t having trouble before that one. I got the others ones where I wanted them.”

Akira is growing certain that cats possess the ability to roll their eyes.

He is peeling the back off of another star when struck with an idea; it’s stupid, ridiculous, but he’s in a good mood. “See? Yusuke.”

“Hm?”

Yusuke turns to inquire of him, and Akira leans forward, pressing one of the smaller stars against Yusuke’s cheek. “Right where I want them.”

Yusuke stops, and then goes cross-eyed, trying to see the star, and his hand comes up to press gently against it. “What…?”

“A star for a star.”

Yusuke’s eyes look a little wide, and Morgana makes a noise as though he’s been afflicted with a sudden hairball, and Akira feels defiantly stupid and ridiculous and unapologetic, because Yusuke starts to laugh, a little more defined than his usual chuckle, and he presses his hand flat against his own cheek and the star there. “Thank you.”

Akira thinks he might be beaming himself.

“I thought they were intended to go on the walls,” Yusuke said, dropping his hand, “but if you insist on special treatments…”

And then Akira is the one subject to one of the stars being stuck to his face, right in the middle of his forehead, and he laughs out loud while Yusuke looks supremely happy with himself.

“You are Alpha Ursae Minoris,” he announces. “Because you are the light that guides us. You will always take us home, Akira.”

Morgana makes a noise that speaks of unrestrained disgust, and Akira finds himself nearly helpless with laughter, leaning into Yusuke’s warmth for support.

the moon: the quintessential mother figure, a swelling stomach shaped like the moon, cradling a baby, a lamp in your eyes guiding you into her arms, darling come home she whispers

jupiter: bellowing laughter emanating from the biggest mansion in the land, inside an overweight man eating an icecream cake for breakfast, he is dressed in every colour of the rainbow, philanthropic and generous, the more of his endless money he gives to others the more jovial he becomes

mercury: androgynous twins, handsome and young, mischievous and wicked quick, playing tricks, vanishing, and lighter than air. they were there in a moment and gone in the next, but you can hear the chatter in the ether

neptune: a siren of the sea, a mermaid rising from the ocean singing her sweet song, follow me child into my extraordinary world, come dear child i will give you everything you ever wanted… and you find her among the mist, everything is not what it seems…

saturn: an old wizard holding an hourglass in a library of knowledge and books. he strokes his long beard as he considers and contemplates, he is draped in a robe of glory, his cottage resting on the tallest mountaintop

venus: the deepest spell of beauty you see reflected in the face of others

mars: a woman with embers radiating from the tips of her hair, her sword raised as she guards a lava pool, her heartbeat echoing in the air, her lips painted scarlet, her spirit ready for battle

His skin is like silk, you think to yourself, as your hand dances across the length of his spine. It’s so soft.

You’re not sure what time it is because at a time like this, when you were sure you both were going to die in a mission gone sideways, the only thing that matters is him and you and that you’re both alive and okay, and that you get one more chance to be together when you swore there might’ve been a chance that one of you could’ve been six feet under by now.
