Haunting Video Shows What Syria’s Civil War Would Look Like in the West
what would it be like if the U.S. was war torn like Syria? A new video by international NGO Save the Children imagines just that, through the eyes of a young girlThe disturbing video features shots of the girl as she goes about her normal life over the course of a year. The video begins and ends with the child celebrating her birthday. Between shots, we see how her life changes dramatically as war ravages her country.
Yesterday I spent time with my sis in and around Times Square, trying to get reduced tickets for Broadway shows (we failed, but it’s okay, I still had fun). At one point one of those weird looking “Mascots” in the strange non official suits quite aggressively sought me out for a hug. Minnie came right at me with her arms open and I physically lunged forward and almost fell into it but at the last second looked at her costume and realized how dirty it was and I’d rather hug a complete stranger NOT in a costume than that furry sweaty thing that hasn’t been washed for at least a year. But what I realized is I actually had a physical response to resisting a hug. Like it hurt not to go for it and hug back. Like my body is just always waiting for a hug, so to be offered one and deny it felt SO unnatural…it really did. BTW later we went to my sister’s college campus and met a buddy of her’s who was adorable, declared I was his sister too now and immediately gave me a hug. And he gave me a hug goodbye to. And he gave the warmest most amazing hug, and he smelt good. And I’m thinking “I’m so glad I didn’t taint this moment by hugging Creeper Minnie earlier.”
Also, after this happened all I could think was this would make a cute drabble for Kurt and Blaine, like Blaine almost hugging a disgusting mascot just because it was there and it offered and then being grossed out with himself that he’d even consider it.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.
I remember that, it was ridiculous. I hate when people immediately start ranting that Ryan hates his gay characters. Come on now, they are there because of Ryan. I don’t think he hates Kurt or Santana. She isn’t in a few episodes, there is very likely a good reason why. Everybody just calm yo tits please. Seriously. Can we just wait and watch? I don’t really know how to blacklist spoilers and I like seeing the spoilers, I don’t want half assed rants or needless speculation. My guess is the people who do that probably don’t always tag anyway.
Sigh, I guess it’s just time to unfollow people when I see them spreading around wank, that’s all.
Please read from bottom to top.
According to Gi, there is no story indicating that Santana is leaving. There is an explanation as to why she is missing from several episodes. But Glee has left the story open for Santana (and Brittany ?) to return. At some point. If Glee follows its own story.
For all the people on my dash hating on Ryan Murphy because they assume he’s writing Santana off just because she’s not in a couple episodes…here this is why we should maybe wait to get enraged until after we see the damned episodes.
Okay this is reading WAY to into it, but I just noticed one is purple and one is green, very similar shades to Blaine and Sam’s shirts in the earlier scene where they tried on their robes.
Oooh I’ve never seen colour meta about condoms before! :D
Fandom generally seems to see green as Change, and I can’t remember what purple is but it’s like a mix between Power red and Sad blue. Sam definitely seems to be going through some changes (graduation, his feelings about Tina, etc), and I could see Blaine’s state as Powering Through the Sadness. And I totally buy that a threesome between these three at this stage would involve tons of both Change and Powering Through the Sadness.
I vote that you are 100% right that those two condoms are for Blaine and Sam for an epic goodbye threesome with Tina! :D
I’m not sure about fandom interpretations of color but typical meanings for purple are royalty, wealth, creativity, spirituality, mystery and good judgement. It’s also used by the gay community as a pride color. We see Blaine in purple kind of often in the “spring” time I noticed. Green represents growth and rebirth. So I see the two of them representing hope and embracing the new. They are vibrant and full of energy. Tina has been wearing a bit of blue…and pink, which is just a more muted red. So your interpretation of change and sadness I think is actually being shown by Tina the most of anyone since she is just lost at sea, she’s the least excited by the future because she doesn’t know what she’s doing (much like Finn, Puck and Santana were). As for the idea of what the threesome would mean it’s be Sam and Blaine trying to “inject” (please forgive me) Tina with some hope and positivity for change being a good thing.
All right, Starchild, it’s time to settle this once and for all. Who was better?
Perfect reaction gif is perfect!
However, now that I have seen a gif of it, the gesture I had initially assumed was a jokey “threesome? yes?” gesture I’m now reading more as a “Do you want to or should I?” gesture. Actually I think it could really go either way LOL.
So what’s with the whole laundry list post I keep seeing reblogged? You know the “If you blog X, Y and Z I want to follow you BUT ONLY IF YOU NEVER EVER BLOG THE PERSONS I DEEM AS SPAWN OF SATAN, OMFG!!” posts, you know the ones I’m talking about? I mean follow me or don’t, I’m not here to convince you or try to sell myself, holy crap, those posts feel like a lot of pressure don’t they?
I mean I almost never post the people they mention, but what if I want to one time? Do I have to feel like I’ve entered a binding contract because one time I reblogged this post?
