What if I just love you? What if I love you but I never touch you or talk about it, what would happen then?” {x}

What will happen when they grow too large for the pit? Will they turn on one another with flame and claw? Will they grow wan and weak, with withered flanks and shrunken wings? Will their fires go out before the end? What sort of mother lets her children rot in darkness? (x)

I have some Retribution theories but not really, speculation is more accurate I think…

First, Parents:

  • Mara doesn’t look like her mother, we don’t see a lot of her dad (or at least not nearly as much as her mom but this part may be pushing it?).
  • Noah’s real mom was killed, we only hear about his dad in passing, we haven’t ‘met’ him.
  • Jamie is adopted, we haven’t met his parents.
  • We haven’t met Jude’s parents and they have seemingly disappeared.

…are these things connected?

Second, Noah:

  • When Jude takes Mara he says something about ‘Someone had to go and be a hero’ and he’s not talking about Mara so we can only assume he’s talking about Noah.
  • Noah sort of got himself put in Horizon’s.
  • Now Noah is ‘dead’.

…was Noah not supposed to be there? Are these things connected? Are these things connected to the stuff about the parents?

This might not make any sense because I haven’t read the books in forever and need to reread but there you go.

"All hail the Pirate King."
"Privateer."
"Why dance around it? ‘Bastard King’ is more likely."
"Actually," I said, "they’re already calling you Korol Rezni.” I’d heard it whispered in the streets of Kribirsk: King of Scars.

Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.

I’m having a good laugh right now because our associates just got collectively reprimanded for leaning on the counters during 8 hour shifts on their feet, because it isn’t “professional” looking.  So apparently they can put up with a camera over their shoulder to make sure they do their jobs correctly, but a cop with a gun cant?  

Do cops want CCTV cams removed from businesses and streets? If they don’t want to monitored on their jobs, why should everyone be monitored at theirs (and in their LIVES)? Oh, it makes cops’ job easier to have a video record of crimes and infractions? Huh.
HUH.

I work in an office and not retail, but I also know that every website I visit, and instant message or email I send is monitored and stored by my employer.

Also, surveillance cameras in public areas are nearly everywhere in America, watching just about everything completely innocent people are doing.Police should be held to a higher standard than the public they are sworn to protect, and the data shows that cops equipped with cameras are simply better cops.

thegirlofnovels:

It genuinely baffles me when people ask, ‘how do you have time to read?’ because let me put it this way; how do you have time to hang out with friends, watch tv, go to parties, study until the break of dawn and then spend time with the family?

The answer’s pretty obvious. You make time. 

Because if it’s something you enjoy doing or something you have to do, you’ll find a way to get around that there’s only 24-hours-in-a-day-thing.

Trust me.

Why do you think all men paint themselves when they go to fight? When I paint my eyes to match my soup, it is not because I have nothing better to do than worry over trifles. It says, I belong here, and you will not deny me. When I streak my lips red as foxgloves, I say, Come here, male. I am your mate, and you will not deny me. When I pinch my cheeks and dust them with mother-of-pearl, I say, Death, keep off, I am your enemy, and you will not deny me. I say these things, and the world listens, Masha. Because my magic is as strong as an arm. I am never denied.

Yo. Not everyone who disliked the ending is an Alarkling shipper. Not everyone who disliked the ending hated Mal. Not everyone who disliked the ending hated the whole book. Some people who disliked the ending had the ending grow on them a little bit but still don’t LOVE it. Simmer down.

I’m just gonna reblog myself every time I get mad…
