- "15 Texts I Almost Sent You" by d.a.s (via spiritedawayed)
"For the Angel’s sake, Tess, why do you women wear these bloody things?" Will groused as he gave the laces another hearty tug. Tessa held herself steady, unused to the strength behind the yanks on her corset.
"Because it’s proper, Will," she answered him in a clipped voice. True, she was more comfortable out of the device, but she couldn’t possibly dream of leaving their home without one. "Not wearing one is paramount to walking about naked."
Will leered at her in the mirror and Tessa had to resist the urge to change her facial features into those of his mother. The only thought stopping her was that her corset might unlace and she’d be stuck waiting through another half an hour of complaining and wrestling with whale bone and lace until she’d reach this same point again.
"There are worse things," he murmured to her before giving another rough tug on the laces. Tessa took an experimental breath. No, still too loose.
"You’re almost there, Will. And would you really want other men to see me the way you do?" Her eyes sparkled at him in the mirror and Tessa delighted in the way his blue eyes darkened, going from bright to stormy in a split second. She could always tell how her WIlliam felt just by looking into his eyes.
"Never," he rasped. "You’re mine to look at, and mine alone."
Tessa huffed. “I am not a possession, William Herondale, and you would do well to remember that.” Despite that, though, her heart still swelled, knowing he’d defend and protect her. He’d fight for her.
Will gave one last pull on the laces and Tessa sighed in relief. “There. Now you just have to tie it so it doesn’t come undone. And none of your silly Shadowhunter knots, do you hear me? A bow, William.”
Will grumbled good naturedly as his fingers began the task of tying his wife- his wife- a bow. “I am a man and men do not tie frilly bows.”
Tessa quirked an eyebrow at him in the mirror. “A bow will make it easier to remove tonight.”
"A bow it is."
Last night I was at McDonald’s with one of my friend’s and that man started to randomly ask us questions like “how old are y’all?” And “do yall have boyfriends?” At first we were like what, why is he asking us and then five minutes later he said ” You know.. I have been married to the most amazing woman in the whole world for 52 years and we’ve been together for 55. But I don’t think there’s ever going to be another year after tonight or tomorrow night” ..by this time we just turned to him and starting listening to him. “You see, my sweet lady is in the hospital right now, she has cancer. I just came back from there right now and even with all of the tubes, she still looks so beautiful. Tomorrow is certain to be her last day if it doesn’t happen tonight and Im not going to church in the morning because I want to spend every waking moment with her by her side. I love her so much.. it hurts. I don’t know what I’m going to do without her. I don’t want to be without her.” ..by this time he had tears in his eyes, got up with struggle and said ” well it was nice talking to you ladies, but I have to go home to the dark to prepare and give this cheeseburger to my puppy.” And that was it, we just listened to him, and he left. This whole day I’ve been bothered because I have been complaining about how I can’t finish some damn essay while this man is about to or just lost his whole world.

This is an enormous chain and I’m sorry, but I need to say this:
The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.
According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.
When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.
So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.
Dead day is not a day to go out and get drunk. Dead day is to study your ass off for all of your finals. But maybe that doesn’t apply to people with fucking stupid ass majors.
Mother fucking yes. Dead day is not “drink till you’re dead” day. It is “study til you’re fucking dead” day.
Forever frustrated at people who don’t take college seriously.
