Sydney | 22 August | Wiccan
Welcome to the mouse pile! We have a lovely selection of furry mice to cuddle with and they each come with a helping of feels. Please excuse any and all screaming about NO. 6, NICO DI ANGELO who must be PROTECTED AT ALL COSTS, TOKYO GHOUL, HAIKYUU!!, KINGDOM HEARTS, HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON, MY PERSONAL SHENANIGANS and ANY OTHER FICTIONAL WORKS, as the dork feeding the mice can be a bit eccentric.

 

Introducing Chaos into Shadows of Light was a real treat because he’s literally just a sassy and sarcastic little fuck and literally the first thing he says to convince Hope to help him is to tell him why Hope’s a murderer; the second time you hear him, he’s complaining about what someone did to his sword and eloquently ends his rant with bah and I find that much more hilarious than I should given my current fever-induced state. Like seriously; he’s just talking to himself at this point:

For the love of the Successor, what have they done to my sword? The familiar voice returns, sounding rather ticked off, and I jolt a bit at the sound. Neither of the girls seems to notice: Lia’s busy giving Esther a quick class on How To Beat Hope 101. This… is not the blade they took from me. What did they call it? The Bane of Light? Bah!
I pause in my movements – there’s a name I haven’t yet forgotten.
This is… that sword I kept hearing about? I ask, all my red flags going up at the same time. You’re joking.
Trust me, I’m a lot more pissed off about it than you are, it sighs, and I can somehow imagine its owner with an expression of disgust. I knew something was wrong with it the moment I realised how frightened of it all those things were – they’ve completely corrupted it. It’s practically useless to me right now.
Uh…
Maybe if I did this one thing, I could expel enough of the dead space from it for it to do what Capricorn told me it would… It seems to be talking more to itself right now, and this is probably the longest conversation I’ve held with it so far – though I don’t know if you can call this a conversation. Seems a bit one-sided. Gods, this suddenly got a lot more complicated. This is a problem.

Methods of Death & How They Feel
Drowning: When victims eventually submerge, they hold their breath for as long as possible, typically 30 to 90 seconds. After that, they inhale some water, splutter, cough and inhale more. Survivors say there is a feeling of tearing and a burning sensation in the chest as water goes down into the airway. Then that sort of slips into a feeling of calmness and tranquility. That calmness represents the beginnings of the loss of consciousness from oxygen deprivation, which eventually results in the heart stopping and brain death.
Heart Attack: The most common symptom is chest pain: a tightness, pressure or squeezing, often described as an “elephant on my chest”, which may be lasting or come and go. This is the heart muscle struggling and dying from oxygen deprivation. Pain can radiate to the jaw, throat, back, belly and arms. Other signs and symptoms include shortness of breath, nausea and cold sweats.
Bleeding to Death:  Anyone losing 1.5 litres – either through an external wound or internal bleeding – feels weak, thirsty and anxious, and would be breathing fast. By 2 litres, people experience dizziness, confusion and then eventual unconsciousness.
Fire: Burns inflict immediate and intense pain through stimulation of the pain nerves in the skin. To make matters worse, burns also trigger a rapid inflammatory response, which boosts sensitivity to pain in the injured tissues and surrounding areas.As burn intensities progress, some feeling is lost but not much. 3rd degree burns don’t hurt as much as 2nd degree burns.
Decapitation: Very quick. Consciousness is said to continue for a few seconds after decapitation. It’s thought to be painless. But the separation of the spinal cord and brain may cause severe pain.
Electrocution: Higher currents can produce nearly immediate unconsciousness. The electric chair was designed to produce instant loss of consciousness and painless death, but that’s debatable. It’s been proposed that prisoners could instead be dying from heating of the brain, or perhaps from suffocation due to paralysis of the breathing muscles instead of electrocution itself because the skulls of the wall are a thick and powerful insulator. 
Falling from a height: Another instantaneous death. Survivors of great falls often report the sensation of time slowing down. The natural reaction is to struggle to maintain a feet-first landing, resulting in fractures to the leg bones, lower spinal column and life-threatening broken pelvises. The impact traveling up through the body can also burst the aorta and heart chambers. 
Hanging: The rope puts pressure on the windpipe and the arteries to the brain. This can cause unconsciousness in 10 seconds, but it takes longer if the noose is incorrectly sited. Witnesses of public hangings often reported victims “dancing” in pain at the end of the rope, struggling violently as they asphyxiated. 
Lethal injection: . First comes the anaesthetic thiopental to speed away any feelings of pain, followed by a paralytic agent called pancuronium to stop breathing. Finally potassium chloride is injected, which stops the heart almost instantly. eyewitnesses have reported inmates convulsing, heaving and attempting to sit up during the procedure, suggesting it’s not always completely effective.
Vacuum (In Outer Space): When the external air pressure suddenly drops, the air in the lungs expands, tearing the fragile gas exchange tissues. This is especially damaging if the victim neglects to exhale prior to decompression or tries to hold their breath. Oxygen begins to escape from the blood and lungs. Human survivors from NASA often report an initial pain, like being hit in the chest, and may remember feeling air escape from their lungs and the inability to inhale. Time to the loss of consciousness was generally less than 15 seconds.

Hi. This is very difficult for me to talk about, but I think I’m ready!! Ok! As most of my followers know, I’m Karen! I’m an artist from Northern California and I’m here to talk about my dad! I normally don’t like to talk about my personal problems in public but my dad needs help! 
My dad, José, was born in México and he came to the U.S. in the mid/late 80s. He, along with my mom, raised three girls: my sisters Grace, Mariseli, and me! My dad has always been a very great dad! Because my mom worked in the evenings when we were younger, he’d take care of us, feed us, play games with us, and let us watch movies all the time. When my dad bought a camcorder for the first time, he recorded a lot of fun memories of his children. We have so many home movies of us watching Jurassic Park 2, singing along to the opening theme of Ranma ½, and running through the sprinklers of our backyard. We’d watch soccer games with him and cheer for his favorite Mexican soccer team, Club America. It was my dad who taught me how to color! He even built us a backyard playground, complete with swings, ladders, a two-story mini playhouse, and a slide! I had a really fun and memorable childhood and I’m sure my sisters would agree.  
In the previous months, both sides of my family have been going through extremely painful and emotional experiences and this has affected my dad very deeply, to the point of depression. 
My dad is self-employed and does business as a lawn-care maintenance/gardener/etc. He’s been working the same job for as long as he’s been in the U.S. He used to work almost every day of the week, including Saturdays, and he rarely took a day off. Now, he’s been getting less and less business and works maybe three times a week for a few hours.  It’s hard for him to get up in the mornings and it’s getting harder for him to go to work. He sleeps long hours as soon as he comes home, he won’t eat and he doesn’t laugh anymore. At first, my sisters just brushed it off because we assumed he was still working full time. It turns out he would leave and pretend he had work every day. We had no idea what was going on with our family so we ignoring everything. This made him even more depressed and now he rarely talks to us. Now that I know what’s really going on, I feel incredibly guilty and sad.
 
My dad is very stubborn (as most dads usually are) and he is in denial about his depression. Also, because he’s been getting less income, he’s been relying on his credit cards to make payments on even the smallest things and he doesn’t want to ask for money/help anymore. My dad is in debt because of this. Even though my sisters and I have jobs, we can’t afford to pull him out of this debt because we are taking care of my parents’ house and helping my mom with bills and other miscellaneous things. We can’t magically fix my dad’s depression, but alleviating my dad’s debt is one way to remove some stress. My sisters and I are currently trying to get help for his depression and even though he says he’s okay, he isn’t. I don’t know if my dad will ever be the same but I want him to know that we are here for him. Depression isn’t something that people can get over in a day and we have no idea what my dad is going through, emotionally or physically, but we want to help him.
 I want to help him in any way I can because I love him and he’s the best dad in the world. My dad has no idea I’m doing this, so I hope we can reach the goal and bring him some relief.
Thank you so much for reading! Any signal boosting is greatly appreciated!!!!!

Captured Christian girls between the ages of 6 and 9 being herded to the slave pits.  Not a joke.  Really is happening here in Syria.  Their parents were killed, and often times they had to watch their mothers and sisters getting raped. 
They will be sold to other Muslim men to use them as sex toys, slaves, and the lucky ones will be married off.

I’m really disappointed with you, reblogging such filth.
"The picture is from a “play”. It is a dramatization of events that occurred over 1400 years ago in Karbala, Iraq. Those girls are “acting” like the women and children who were chained and taken prisoner in Karbala and then led, while being chained, to Damascus, Syria. Every year Shia muslims re-enact that event. Including the “chaining’ you see above. This re-enactment is not done by force. Those girls volunteer."
It’s part of many commemorative events and expressions associated with the Day of Ashura, which is part of the Mourning of Muharram, and participants are aware and consenting.
If you’re going to promot Islamaphobic propaganda you could at least find some that has some relationship to reality.
I really expected better of you.
