400 Water Protectors were trapped on bridge as police fire tear gas, water, grenades today. 13-year-old girl was shot in the face by rubber bullets. 168 were people injured, 7 people were hospitalized with head injuries, 1 elder cardiac arrest. 

The use of water cannons in freezing temperatures is torture. It’s a war crimes we’re witnessing.

This must end.

I love seeing posts go over my dash which are just, y’know, witchy, because inevitably they have a really pleasing pure white and green aesthetic and words like “make sure your house is a place of calm tranquility and to banish negative energy regularly by burning sage and keeping crystals in strategic places WuW”

And then there’s me in my basement, hurling burning sage like a hand grenade and banging old iron pots and pans together like “wHO FUCKING WaNtS SOME, COME ON, BRING IT ON IF YE THINK YER HARD ENOUGH”

Since the first time they met–sparring in a ring, their swords matching one another blow for blow, the world disappearing around them as they fought– he has been her partner in a way, the only man unafraid of her crown and her sword.

He had been but her rival at first, at the receiving end of her famed wit, at the pointy end of her practise sword, at the other side of the room, on the other side of the palace walls.

But as they had grown, as the fire within them had steadied and burned strong, he had become her partner in other ways.

The Princess and her Knight Commander.

At her side in every battle, escorting her through every painful ball with a sly joke whispered in her ear, with a tentative compliment at the end of the night before he walks away, leaving her with a soft longing for something that makes her heart sigh.

But as she stands facing him now, caught in a hug goodbye that had not ended, lingering instead– her forehead pressed against his, his breath puffing against her cheek, her hand resting upon his chest– she wonders if perhaps they could not be more.

She takes a sharp breath and presses closer.

Perhaps it is time to take a leap.

Seraph of the End (終わりのセラフ)

These two Owari no Seraph spreads from Animedia Magazine finally got their pinup versions in Animedia Deluxe + Vol. 01 (eBay | Amazon JP). Yuu and Mika were illustrated by animator Miho Kato (加藤美穂) and the Yuu and Guren combo was illustrated by key animator Fumie Muroi (室井ふみえ).

“You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.


This is not the first time you have seen Hillary Clinton seemingly at her wits’ end, but she has always risen, always risen, don’t forget she has always risen, much to the dismay of her adversaries and the delight of her friends.
Hillary Clinton will not give up on you and all she asks of you is that you do not give up on her.


There is a world of difference between being a woman and being an old female. If you’re born a girl, grow up, and live long enough, you can become an old female. But to become a woman is a serious matter. A woman takes responsibility for the time she takes up and the space she occupies. Hillary Clinton is a woman. She has been there and done that and has still risen. She is in this race for the long haul. She intends to make a difference in our country. Hillary Clinton intends to help our country to be what it can become.
She declares she wants to see more smiles in the family, more courtesies between men and women, more honesty in the marketplace. She is the prayer of every woman and man who longs for fair play, healthy families, good schools, and a balanced economy.
She means to rise.


Don’t give up on Hillary. In fact, if you help her to rise, you will rise with her and help her make this country the wonderful, wonderful place where every man and every woman can live freely without sanctimonious piety and without crippling fear.

Rise, Hillary.
Rise.”

Can I ask for RFA member and Saeran plus V with their child, talking how much they love Mc? Thank you

such a sweet and fluffy request! WELP TIME TO ADD IN SOME ANGST FOR SOME OF THEM - forgive me for this hahaha. (also i might have gone off track with a couple of the RFA peeps from your question - nevertheless, hope you enjoy this!)

Yoosung

  • babies. are. terrifying.
  • haru, his beloved baby son, sits on the floor screaming at the top of his lungs
  • yoosung is at his wit’s end. he gave his baby everything he could think of! teething toys, his pacifier, his favorite stuffed animal - but haru continues to scream his head off
  • at this point yoosung is balled up into fetal position, contemplating whether he should call you or not and beg you to come home
  • even lisa the cat dashes somewhere else the house, escaping haru’s inhumane crying
  • it’s been fifteen minutes and your baby is bawling his eyes out
  • it’s been like this for only an hour since your absence 
  • yoosung is close to crying himself when he remembers you won’t come back for another three days
  • but he has to strong! he’s a good dad…he has to dependable! 
  • turning back to haru, whose chubby little face is completely wet with snot and tears, yoosung dare approaches the terrifying smol human bean
  • “hey. hey.” yoosung calls out softly, stroking haru’s fluffy hair
  • haru’s big watery purple eyes takes once glance at his dad
  • he quiets down for a moment
  • can yoosung hope?
  • nope
  • the baby scrunches his face up and goes back to crying
  • quickly, yoosung plops haru into his lap
  • “shh, shh, hey hey, please don’t cry! please! i don’t know what im doing wrong…”
  • haru continues to wail
  • yoosung shuts his eyes, racking his throbbing head for any idea
  • “mommy’s gonna come back. you miss her? i miss her too. this house already feels so empty without her.” he admits, burying his face into haru’s soft, wispy hair. 
  • haru squirms, hiccuping
  • yoosung gets up with haru tucked in his arm, and heads to the kitchen to retrieve a sippy cup
  • he continues to talk about you, a wife and loving mother, to baby haru
  • yoosung isn’t quite sure why he’s talking to haru as if he were a grown adult. but it’s soothing to talk and think about you
  • haru’s sobbing eventually quiets into sparse sniffles
  • finally, finally haru falls asleep in yoosung’s arm after he finished saying his thoughts aloud of what he really thinks of you
  • yoosung finally tears up when he sees haru calmed down
  • thank god
  • he collapses on the coach with haru nestled into his chest, and the household is once again peaceful

Zen

  • you and zen may not have worked out as a married couple, but you sure as hell made a great divorced couple
  • you thought you could handle it. zen working pretty much 24/7, the media watching you like a hawk waiting for you to slip up so they can profit off of it, zen’s increasingly growing fanbase and career
  • but you broke it off on peaceful terms after you both finally admitted your relationship can’t work out
  • no matter how much the media tried to ruin your image, bring nari into the picture, or spread lies about you both
  • zen still supported you by helping take care of nari and joint custody
  • one night he came home late with nari
  • he smiles sheepishly at you, taking off the shades to reveal his red eyes
  • “sorry for returning her so late. may i tuck her into bed?”
  • you nod, returning a polite smile back. 
  • nari giggles in her father’s arms, looking at him with stars in her eyes. she loved tagging along with zen and watching him rehearse - only at the ripe age of six, and she’s begging you to learn dance “just like her daddy!”
  • you busy yourself, waiting patiently for zen to escort himself out
  • he doesn’t come out of nari’s bedroom and 10 minutes already passed
  • you sigh a bit to yourself. it’s getting late, and you hate being that kind of parent. but you cant let zen over welcome his stay
  • creeping down the hallway, you can hear zen’s soft and soothing voice, speaking to nari
  • “…you and mommy love each other?” nari asks
  • “of course, we’re friends,” zen laughs. you smile a bit, hearing his laughter. it’s sort of nostalgic
  • “if you love each other, why dont you live with mommy and me?”
  • your breath is taken away for a second. your heart aches. of course nari would ask this sort of question.
  • there’s a pause from zen. 
  • you lean against the wall, gripping your arm. you hold your breath in anticipation
  • you should’ve stepped in instead of listening
  • “i…i love your mother. of course i do. but sometimes, things don’t work out between people. but we’re very good friends, i can say that. what matters is your mommy and i care for you, so so much.”
  • okay, now you might really cry. you can hear it in zen’s voice as well, from the way it wobbles at some parts, threatening to fall unravel
  • you walk into the room, as if you didn’t hear anything
  • “time for dad to go, say goodnight nari.” you don’t look at him, because you know you might not be able to hold it together
  • but it was so hard looking at nari. she had her father’s eyes

When Their GF is Flirting With Another Idol (BTS)

Requested by a lovely anon <3

*Don’t own the gif/s yo*

Author: Taebaby

NAMJOON: I think he’d get pretty possessive (and pretty pissed that you’d outright flirt) and he’d soon send the other idol on their way. He would, however, want to have a talk wit you, that might end in some punishing ya get me

YOONGI: Would be low-key angry, but would just ignore you for the rest of the day then show his anger when you got home. There would prob be a moody argument, but it would simmer down enough for the two of you to talk about it

HOSEOK: I feel like he would get pretty verbal about how much he didn’t appreciate it (after the other idol had left of course, he doesn’t like others seeing him jealous) and would confront you pretty much right away. (this sunshine doesn’t deserve this how dare you)

SEOKJIN: He would be genuinely hurt, cause thats a pretty clear sign of disloyalty (at least in my eyes) and he would kinda be like Yoongi and ignore you a bit, but would eventually break and confront you, more on the emotional side

JIMIN: Wild card. He could get like Namjoon or he can get like Yoongi/Hoseok. One thing I’m for sure he would do would be to come next to you real smooth while you’re flirting with the other idol and get a real tight grip on your waist and look at you and smile as he weren’t doing anything (but you could see in his eyes there’s definite purpose)

TAEHYUNG: It would actually take him a second to notice, but when he did he wouldn’t take it too seriously- but he would have some fun with it. He would come up behind you while you were flirting and give you a back hug, smiling at the other idol and ask them if they noticed how pretty you were and how sexy your figure was. Ultimately flustering the other idol and making your cheeks burn in embarrassment- Tae wins

JUNGKOOK: Jungkook would be pretty hurt too. I mean I know he can be kinda fuckboy-ish, but that doesn’t mean he ain’t got feelings ok. I think it would take a lot for him to come and call you out for it though, since he wouldn’t want you to get mad at him in return (bless him)

Do #9!!!!!!!!!!

9. “You can’t banish me! This is my bed too!”

Y/N was not the type of person who could work with music on, or any kind of noise for that matter. Her mind got too distracted and she would focus on everything except for what she needed to focus on. She needed complete silence, but at this point she was at wits end. All she wanted to do was finish her stupid homework, so that she could finally relax. In the grand scheme of things, she really wasn’t asking for much. “Harry.”

“Yes?”

She deadpanned a look between him and the bowl of cereal in his hands. 

He smiled sheepishly at her and wiped the dribble of milk from his chin. “Sorry. I’ll chew quieter.”

She went back to typing away at her computer screen, trying to find the right way to word a phrase. Not even five minutes later, though, she turned towards Harry with her eyes bulging out of her head. “Harry.”

“What? You can’t just not drink the milk at the bottom of the bowl. That’s like sacrilegious.”

“Must you slurp it?”

“It’s not the same if you don’t slurp it, love.”

“Aren’t you supposed to have like a clean diet or something? Why are you eating cereal?”

“’S a cheat day. Don’t try to come for me.”

She rolled her eyes and again attempted to finish her work. “Whatever. Can you at least cheat quietly?”

“Mums the word.”

Once he sat the blasted bowl down, she finally got in the zone. She was hitting every point she needed to. Her philosophy argument was sound, and she was more than sure that all her premises made sense. She needed to make one more connection though just to be sure. A thought came into her head, but left it almost immediately as a tapping noise filled the air around her. She whipped her head around to her boyfriend (she’s using the term very lightly right about now) typing away on his phone. “Harry! What are you- why are you- ugh!”

“The noise helps me remember what I’m supposed to be saying!”

She carefully clicked save before she moved in a hurry and pulled him out of the bed. “No. That’s it. You’re done. Shoo,” she said, pushing him out the door.

He gave her an affronted look. “You can’t banish me! This is my bed too!”

“I can and I will and I am. Goodbye.”

“Babe,” he whined, planting his feet in the ground so she couldn’t continue pushing him. 

“Listen, if you go away and let me finish this assignment, we can do anything you want.”

“Anything?” he asked with a smirk on his face.

“Anything.”

On Once Upon a Time, how many episodes will the Snowing curse last? — SnowingFan


Unfortunately, it’s going to be a while. The pressure of the curse paired with Charming being ready to kill the Evil Queen and the lingering question of what really happened to his father means David is not doing OK. “What we’re seeing through David is somebody who is at his wits end,” EP Edward Kitsis says. “This curse with his wife, I think that what we’re seeing is that he’s staying up too late. Without Snow, you’re seeing him starting to give into darker impulses. We’re going to see him have to confront his own demons.”
