It’s no easy task being an ordinary parent to an extraordinary child. I failed in that task. And because of my prejudices, I failed you. I am haunted by how things might have turned out differently if I had been more willing to hear your side of things. For me, it’s the end. For you, a chance to grow old and someday do better with your own child than I did with mine. It’s for that child that I give you my ring. I don’t ask for your forgiveness or for you to forget. I ask only that you believe this: whether you are now reading this as a human or as a vampire, I love you all the same, as I’ve always loved you and always will.
anyway… mats zuccarello donated 12000 norwegian kr to tromsø’s ladies team so they could participate in NM for women (nationals) they wouldn’t have been able to go if it hadn’t been for him and i just want you all to know that mats zuccarello is an amazing person and a great ambassador for norwegian hockey, that’s all
It’s for the most part really lovely because people come to the meet and greets and they show us love. We’re standing there and this girl comes to approach us and you know, we’re both smiling at her. [x]
the most important daily reminder you’ll see today:
andrew joseph minyard(palmetto state foxes, goalkeeper, #3), who repeatedly stated he doesn’t care about exy, in a match against the ravens (known as the number 1 exy team in the nation) missed only 13 shots out of 150 attempted, while going through a serious withdrawal.

the fact that magnus realised everyone was hallucinating, fought iris to protect everyone, saved alec’s life, AND planned the whole party for shadowhunters who have never been anything but cruel to him? your fave could never
Sansa Stark went from a spoilt naive little girl to one of the smartest and strongest characters one the show. She spent years sitting back taking everything in, Learning to make decisions with her head instead of her heart and playing the game without anyone realising her potential. She gained power and support using her own intelligence with no need for threats or violence. She’s becoming a better, more capable leader than more experienced people who have been in positions of power for years. Sansa Stark has had the greatest character development I have ever seen and no-one can convince me otherwise.
Do you ever get emotional about the fact that Thomas Hamilton was an unashamedly gay man in a time where you could be executed for being gay (the last execution for sodomy was in 1835) and where it was certainly seen as a shameful and sinful thing to do. That Thomas fought against this status quo with everything he had, to end the oppression and degradation of people like him but also people very unlike him who were treated unfairly by the British Empire, and he used his religion (you know, that tool that’s been used to persecute queer people for centuries) to argue for mercy and for his ideas. That even after ten years in Bedlam (where they certainly tried to make him feel shame for being gay and for his relationship with James) and in backbreaking enslavement on a plantation far from everything he’s ever known, when the man he loved comes and he turns around and sees him again, he doesn’t even hesitate, he throws himself into James’s arms and kisses him in front of everyone.
Just thinking about Thomas Hamilton makes my heart grow bigger in my chest. We are blessed with his existence honestly.
