without leaves


We hadn’t planned to visit William Faulkner’s home on our visit to Mississippi. We didn’t think we had enough time. But really, the temptation was too great: It seemed sacrilegious to leave Oxford without making even a brief pilgrimage.

So before we headed out to the Mississippi Delta, we stopped by Rowan Oak, the stately antebellum mansion Faulkner bought for $6,000 in 1930. He had just published The Sound and the Fury.

Producer Elissa Nadworny and I lingered outside, looking way up at the towering cedar trees that line the walkway to the pillared entrance. We were skulking around when the front door burst open and curator William Griffith spotted us. “Well, c'mon in!” he called. And in we went.

-Him snickering about you acting nervous and grabbing both of your wrists to make you stop and look at him in the eyes as he tells you that he won’t be hurting you, well at least too much

-Him teasing you by moving in to kiss you, only to back away to see your reaction, each time, making you frustrated as to him not kissing you

-Him wanting you to take charge by doing so, making you press your lips to his first and star to make out

-Him pinning you to the bed with his weight without ever leaving his lips from yours, only to then start trailing down to your neck

-His hands touching and feeling your body to his liking as he slowly undresses you, making you moan

-Him reaching to grab your neck lightly and asking you who do you belong to, wanting to hear you completely surrender to him

-Him chuckling to hear you answer him so eagerly that he starts to slowly touch your arousal and fingers you, making you grip onto his hair as he lowers himself

-Him making you beg for him to keep going after he kisses your heat once and twice, only to have exactly what you both want

-Him deny your orgasm and starting to thrust himself in and despite wanting to go in quick and hard, he slows himself down for you

-Him holding both your wrists to the side of your head as he looks into your eyes and ask you to repeat who do you belong to, making you struggle with each of them gradually


The History of Middle-earth \ House of Haleth Part I

The Haladin entered Beleriand in F.A. 312. Unlike The House of Bëor before them and the House of Hador after, they did not advance to Estolad but instead dwelt without leave in the south of Caranthir’s realm of Thargelion.The Haladin had no overall leader and so settled in scattered groups in that region.This style of living though came to an end in F.A. 375 when a host of orcs assaulted their territory. In answer to this Haldad took command of the people, building a stockade between the angle of the rivers Gelion and Ascar south of Sarn Athrad. There he led the defence of his people until he and his son Haldar were slain whereupon his daughter Haleth took up the leadership of the house.

King Thingol of Doriath granted to Haleth the Forest of Brethil on condition that she defended the Crossings of Teiglin. She led then her people and they settled as woodsmen centered around the capital of Amon Obel. For the following years they guarded the northern flank of Nargothrond. Eventually Haleth died but as she had produced no heirs the title of Chieftain of the Haladin returned to her brother Haldar’s line and to his son Haldan who ruled for 31 years before dying leaving the leadership of the house to his son Halmir. After the fall of Minas Tirith, the Haladin were harassed by frequent Orc-raids in the Crossings from Tol-in-Gaurhoth. When the Union of Maedhros was formed, Halmir offered the aid of the House of Haleth and made preparations for war but a year prior to the Nirnaeth Arnoediad he died and the promise was left for his son Haldir to fulfill. Haldir took part in the battle where the Haladin covered the retreat of Fingon and suffered heavy losses on Anfauglith. Haldir was slain alongside his brother Hundar. The son of Haldir Handir took up the leadership but he himself was slain in one of the many orc raids on Brethil at that time and the position passed to his son Brandir. Their defeat allowed the forces of the enemy to access and sack Nargothrond.

I decided to sleep in just a little bit longer the other day. When I finally rolled out of bed, I had 45 minutes until I needed to walk out of the door. Slowly, I moved around and got myself together. When I looked at the clock, it was 7:30 AM. I needed to be walking out of the door. Rushing, I picked up my purse, grabbed my coat and headed out. When I made it to the garage, I remembered that I had forgotten to grab something. I was already running late, so I had the choice of going back in the house or just leaving without the bag of items. I chose to leave.

Once in the car, I quickly caught an attitude and my whole mood changed for the worse. I allowed my choice to sleep in late set the tone for my day. The drive into work was filled with negative thoughts. Those negative thoughts led to more negative thoughts and eventually I found myself angry. I was angry at the world for no real reason.

In the parking ramp, I could hear the Holy Spirit say, “You cannot be angry with others for a choice you made.” At that moment, I began to repent. I had to “check” myself.

“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.“ -Corinthians 10:4-5 (KJV)

What I failed to do was get down on my knees to pray and command my morning. I allowed the enemy enough space to creep in and wreak havoc on my emotions.

Have you allowed your choices to set the tone of your day? Or have you allowed a situation to ruin your whole mood for the day? Instead of taking a few minutes to calm down, say a prayer and be proactive, we become reactive. We become angry and unleash all of our negativity on others.

This is when it becomes time for a hear check.

“And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” -Philippians 4:8 (NLT)

The next time something does not turn out the way you want it to, instead of getting angry and having an unpleasant attitude, think of the things that are right and true. Stay positive.

—  By Janteya Ford

I had a dream that I was in high school and I was on vacation in Trinidad except it was really more like Iceland. I dreamt about @soulsistrin too. She was in the dream and about to take me out to get gum, but it was raining and very cold (see Iceland part) and I needed my sweater. So I went upstairs and the house was like my grandmother’s house in Italy except it just kept going so it felt like too many flights of stairs. I was worried Natasha would leave without me because it was taking me so long and I also needed my wallet which was in my bag in my car. Anyway when I get to the top there’s like an outside level there. Almost like a roof parking lot but it’s a field. More like a house that’s built into the side of a hill or something. Before I can get my stuff I see Natasha has driven up to the door there and it’s pouring rain and she gets out and says she’ll pay for the gum. I say that I still need my sweater but I don’t know where anything is. We walk out to the car in the rain and a lot of the cars parked up there are half buried in the field like a swamp as is mine. I’m worried about my stuff. Then it’s over.

Then I was in my childhood home and in my parents’s bedroom with Joey Ramone who was my boyfriend. He was wearing this new jacket he had and jeans and no shirt and he was acting all shy showing me his jacket and I started to kiss him. He was so skinny but soft and so clean, like freshly showered I thought as I kissed his chest even in the dream I felt like I must be dreaming. I guess dream me is not so punk as to not want good personal hygiene. Haha. Then I was worried about getting caught in my mom’s bedroom with a now partially dressed Joey Ramone and he said as much too, like, Hey, I hear something. We got up but it’s like he couldn’t get dressed. He was less dressed every time I looked back at him and I was telling him to hurry and a bunch of bathing suit-clad teenagers were coming up the stairs. I didn’t know them but they all went into the other two bedrooms where my sisters and I would sleep and then my mom came up the stairs at the end of the teenager parade. I rushed to the doorway and was trying to stall saying I was just sleeping and yawing and how tired I was but she kept peering over my should at naked Joey Ramone.

Needless to say I woke up exhausted.

Bucky Barnes Imagine Jacket

“If you don’t hurry up we will leave without you.” You rolled your eyes, searching for a jacket to take with you, whilst your friend ranted about how you’d be late. 

“Give me a minute.” You replied, your eyes scanning the room, until they landed on one of Bucky’s jackets. The two of you had been dating for a few months and he’d had to go away on a mission. You’d kept a jacket he’d given you, because it comforted you when he was away.

“Ready!” You called, pulling on your shoes and running to the front door. Your friend raised an eyebrow and smirked at your outfit. You stopped, feeling self conscious. 

“Is something wrong?” You asked worriedly.

“No, it;s just cute that you’re wearing his jacket.” You blushed and looked down, shoving your friend playfully.

“Come on, let’s go.” You mumbled, walking out the door.

You looked down as the ground grew smaller, as you rode the lift in the Shield HQ. Bucky was finally returning from his mission and you were excited to finally see him again. Fury led you to where he was and you ran towards him as soon as you saw him.

“Bucky!” You called, smiling and jumping into his arms. He grinned, wrapping his arms around you and holding you close. You buried your head in his shoulder, smiling about the fact that he was finally home and with you. 

“I missed you.” He mumbled into your hair and you nodded in agreement, the grin on your face growing. You leaned in and kissed him, forgetting about all the other people around you.

“Make sure you come up for air at some point.” You pulled apart, both of you blushed. Reluctantly, you removed your arms from him and stepped away, giving him some space. His eyes roamed over you and smirked.

“Is that the jacket I gave you when it rained during our date?” Bucky asked, raising an eyebrow and you looked at the floor. 

“Maybe.” You replied, biting your lip. Bucky chuckled and pulled you closer. 

“I think it’s adorable. How come you’re wearing it?” He questioned and you shrugged.

“At first I wore it because I missed you, but now it’s just a habit.” You replied and Bucky smiled wider than you’d thought possible. He kissed you again and you practically melted in his arms.

“It looks better on you anyway.”

I don't know why ashley would diss Chris tbh bc Chris has been like "everyone's fine its all good." most of the time except for saying BVB would never perform at the super bowl. Besides that Chris has said nothing but good things. Although the someone's Dad mad me assume Chris at first. Ashley definitely threw shade at Jake and Inna and never mentioned Jake CC or Jinxx a reliable source and in my opinion only mentioned Andy bc Andy's petty ass would take Ashley over a fire if he didn't.

I mean him and Andy really do own the band and neither of them can leave without the band ending. 

“Ah, you’re here already, all ready for a date? Sorry, my love, I got a bit ahead of myself and came at the place earlier…” ///

… And he’s already did some pictures, being all nice and precious!
