It’s the mortal cup Jace, not the mortal toilet bowl
Every year in June, a brave group of daredevils in the city of Alesund, Norway stack up hundreds of wood pallets to a height of over 130 feet, which they then light on fire in celebration of Midsummer and John the Baptist’s birthday.
Norway: where they build monuments and burn them because metal.
only in my homeland.
I thought it was going to be some inspirational art installation about teamwork and stuff BUT THEN IT WAS A PILLAR OF FIRE AND IT JUST GOT EPIC

GONDOR CALLS FOR AID
hiccup + you little sassy shit
The sensation inside me grows warmer and spreads out from my chest, down through my body, out along my arms and legs, to the tips of my being.

Say what you want about Donna but to me, she was incredibly insightful, and I still think she was the smartest companion.
she’s the perfect example of someone who was called stupid so many times that she actually believed it
"I’m telling you," Isaac continued, “Augustus Waters talked so much that he’d interrupt you at his own funeral. And he was pretentious: Sweet Jesus Christ, that kid never took a piss without pondering the abundant metaphorical resonances of human waste production. And he was vain: I do not believe I have ever met a more physically attractive person who was more acutely aware of his own physical attractiveness.”
“I’m so sorry,” Tessa whispered. “About Nate. It’s my fault he’s dead.”
“Hush,” her aunt said. “It isn’t your fault. It is his and mine. I always felt such guilt, you see, Tessa. Knowing I was his mother but not being able to bear telling him. I let him get away with anything he wanted, until he was spoiled beyond saving. If I had told him that I was really his mother, he would not have felt so betrayed when he discovered the truth, and would not have turned against us. Lies and secrets, Tessa, they are like a cancer in the soul. They eat away what is good and leave only destruction behind.”
“I miss you so much,” Tessa said. “I have no family now… .”
Her aunt leaned forward to kiss her on the forehead. “You have more family than you think.”
GREEK MYTHOLOGY MEME | [2/7] MORTAL MYTHOLOGICAL FIGURES: ICARUS
Icarus was the son of famed craftsman Daedalus and both lived in Crete under the rule of King Minos. There the king had Daedalus craft a Labyrinth to imprison the monstrous Minotaur. When heroic Theseus came to slay the monster, Daedalus told Ariadne, daughter of the King, how to survive in the maze and she in turn relayed the information to Theseus, who she had fallen in love with. When King Minos learned of this he imprisoned Icarus and his father in the Labyrinth. There Daedalus constructed wings made of feathers and wax. He and Icarus were intent on escaping by using the wings, but Icarus, once in the air, flew too close to the sun and the wax holding the feathers together melted, leaving Icarus to fall into the sea and drown.
