-in the c&m club- Optimus: "sentinel what the hell are you doing here??" Sentinel: "w-well, I'm,, undercover!! Yes! I thought I'd help you with the case by going undercover!" Optimus: -notices the green lip marks covering his face and the one dancer (throwback) with that color lipstick on- "yeah, sure. Help"
hey checking in on Op’s “”SUPER””important job doesn’t mean he can’t indulge a little with the pretty dancers ;D
throwback to when I was in high school and a former friend of mine told me that my parents were oppressing me by not letting me dress provocatively to school so that I could adhere to our religion and said that God gave me a nice body so I could flaunt it
I was 17 and fully capable of prescribing to my faith of choice. I was very uncomfortable with being told that God wanted me to show off my body
(bonus throwback to when she found I was bisexual and immediately started dancing provocatively in front of me whenever she had the chance, draping herself across my desk so that her chest was in my face, and being very flirtatious with me. she was straight)
sometimes feminism… is performative (we’re both Latinas and I feel it is very important to note that White Feminism is a harmful monicker because not all white people are performative feminist, and not all POC feminists are immune to to the trappings of biases and ignorance)
Me, rewatching avatar the last airbender on Netflix: *screen starts to fade and I am suddenly back in 2005 watching it for the first time. The anxiety and adrenaline start to pump through me. I break out into a sweat knowing i only have a short, precious amount of time before the show returns. Do I go to the bathroom? Do I grab a snack? I breathe heavily and begin to stand. I can already hear the echoes of my brother shouting “IT’S ON” through my head. Then I look back up at the tv. There’s no commercial. It has just continued to play the show. I blink, and suddenly I’m back to 2020 where I can grab the remote and hit pause on the screen.*
Sentinel’s got needs n what not, seeing a few raunch shows in the slums couldn’t hurt a bit every once in a while.
Plus he can sneak around there and no one would rly expect to see a high rank guard there :/ (((he obv holo-paints over his stripes)))
Throwback and him met after Sentinel was practically drooling over TB during a performance,,ehhh after that TB was like ‘what the hell why not, this fuk boy could pay well and he’s got a nice ass let’s GO’ and they got busyyyyy
after that first time they pretty much hooked up every time Sentinel came back to his shows
Obviously they’re not exclusive, but hey they make hell of a pair with the level of ego and sass they can bring together ;D
A glimpse of Allah’s limitless mercy is that He always places before you a chance to seek forgiveness or to increase in your obdience. He makes it easier to tread on this path to Him while filling your heart with optimism that Jannah can be reached. He replaces every sorrow in your heart with His love and mercy. Meanwhile, He also places before you the notion that that there is so much more to life and makes it easier to worship Him so that you can taste the sweetness of faith all over again. He mends your heart over again and again. He makes it possible to pull yourself out of self pity and sadness to eventually realise the beauty of being taken care by the Most Merciful.
“Princess Anne has been President of the Save the Children Fund for some eighteen years. In the last seven, she has put her presidency to practical use by carrying out numerous fact-finding, morale-boosting tours to distressed and under-privileged corners of the world - and has done her public image a power of good into the bargain. One of the most newsworthy of her recent expeditions was that which followed the alarming public realisation, in December 1984, that large tracts of the Sudan were on the verge of almost terminal famine.
“In the wake of the world relief programme that followed, Princess Anne rounded off a twenty-day African tour with a week-long visit to Sudan. Two days were spent in Khartoum, where she attended a reception on arrival, and visited the capital’s Children’s Hospital to see how a typical urban medical centre copes with its workload. Then she toured the famine-stricken provinces, and saw how a far more dire problem was being tackled. On-the-spot information, such as was given in a tent at Umbala, was sought and welcomed.
“Princess Anne spent two days at Umbala, in Darfur Province, and in temperatures exceeding 90°F, for which she was well prepared. The huge refugee camp here accommodated not only those Sudanese whom famine and war had uprooted from their tribal communities, but also some 20,000 starving people from neighbouring Chad who, ironically, found the conditions there, though bad enough by normal standards in Sudan, sufficiently promising by comparison with their own lot. Fortunately, by the time of the Princess’ visit, the story had taken an upward turn. SCF has pumped seven million pounds into the Sudanese famine problem, and clinics, immunization projects and feeding programs were now coping with demand. So it was a relatively optimistic Anne who walked through the compounds, hand-in-hand with the children whom SCF had helped to save.
“The same was broadly true of Nyala, whose outlying villages were on the Princess’ itinerary, and of Safawa, near the town of Gedaref, where she spent another part of her week in Sudan. The native and British workers she met were able to report that, for the time being at least, disease and malnutrition had been brought under control, despite an unexpected influx of refugees, this time from Ethiopia, and an equally unexpected outbreak of cholera. And, when she arrived back in London, she in turn publicized her findings with the good news that real progress had averted a continuing crisis, but that, as always, more funds were needed immediately to maintain even the very basic standard of living now being enjoyed by the refugees.”
