Take a trip through my obsessions as they come... where you'll stop, no one knows. Not even I do, but it'll be an interesting trip on the way there.

arminspants:

AU where Eren is a part of a chamber singers ensemble and Armin is really shy about performing in front of people. Well one day after class he walks past the auditorium and hears Eren doing a solo and immediately falls in love with his voice so every day he watches him sing from afar until one day…

Animal fun fact: Chinchillas can’t get wet. Their fur retains too much water and will start to grow mold. So they bathe by rolling around in dust.

Chinchilla fun fact: Chinchillas have around 20 hairs per follicle; unlike humans who have 2-3 hairs per follicle. Because their fur is so dense, they cannot get fleas or other parasites. The bugs will suffocate in their fur.

Chinchilla fun fact: Petting one of those awesome little guys feels like touching a motherfucking cloud.

Chinchilla fun fact: Their newborn babies are like little pieces of fluffy popcorn. You could easily just toss a handful in your mouth.

Chinchilla fun fact: Don’t toss a handful into your mouth.

because your saliva will make the chinchilla wet, and chinchillas can’t get wet. The end.

Dying fact: I still have never touched a chinchilla because my field trip group in the fourth grade forgot about me so everyone else touched the cloud but me.

that’s the saddest story I ever heard.

jaeger-of-freiheit asked
"Hey Armin, tell me what movie you're bringing over again?" Eren's head was pressed against his hunched shoulder, his phone wedged between. His arms were clutching two large bags of popcorn, two plastic bags hanging from both wrists filled with packets of goodies and cans, treats no movie night could go without.

Armin looked over at him, before sitting next to his friend on the couch. He held the DVD of Les Miserables in his hand with a grin. He thought that Eren would like a movie with a bit of action in it, and a two-hour history lesson wouldn’t hurt him either. Honestly, Armin found himself stressing more over Eren’s grades than Eren ever did.

"What do you think? I know it’s a musical, but give it a chance! You might like it!" He gave a sheepish grin, pulling up his shoulders a bit. He brought a few extras, just in case. Though he didn’t think his heart could take why more horror flicks…

The blond looked ove, hearing the ragged breaths of the boy next to him. He was about to reach out to him, when all of a sudden, Eren’s weight collided with his shoulder. He tensed up in an instant, only to cautiously reach out and stroke his hair. Was this really happening? No one was playing a joke on him?

"It’s okay, Eren… Don’t cry." He murmured, his tone hushed as he consoled his friend. He thought about warning Eren about the rest of the film, but decided against it. Honestly, he was enjoying having Eren lean against him. He was a crying mess, but an adorable crying mess.

Heart fluttering as Armin consoled him, Eren eventually managed to lower his sobbing to quiet ‘hics’ and sniffles.  ”Ugh” he groaned, wiping his eyes, “Armin I hate you for making me watch this, but it’s awesome so I love you for it too.”  His voice quivered and his face turned red when he realised what he had just said, but rather than trying to laugh it off he brought his knees up onto the couch and buried his face in them, trying to make it seem as though he was wiping his tears against them.

Armin smiled at him. “It’s okay, Eren. I’m just glad that you’re enjoying it.” As Eren pulled away, he had to hide his disappointment as the boy hid his face into his knees. He heard what Eren had said, and he blushed.

Of course he meant it as friends. He loves me as a friend and that’s totally acceptable! He assured himself. Honestly, he wouldn’t believe that Eren liked him in a romantic way, even if he said it. Armin was a history nerd. They barely had anything in common as they grew up. The only reason they were friends, was because Eren would fight off bullies that would pick on Armin when they were in elementary school. Sometimes Armin wondered why Eren even gave him his time in the first place. There were so many other cooler kids, and attractive girls that could occupy his time.

Fluttershy felt Discord’s claw comb her back, and relaxed at his touch.  Her breathing slowed and became even again as she nuzzled Discord in return.   Fluttershy decided to back away and wipe her tears.as she let go of Discord, but gasped at seeing his scarred face uncovered.  She quickly stopped his paw from reaching up and shook her head, bring his paw back down as she stared into his eyes.

His face may have been cruelly torn and scarred, but Fluttershy didn’t find it ugly, the only ugliness she saw was in the ponies who would hurt him.  Fluttershy reached out with her other hoof, and paused as she saw Discord’s reaction, but slowly continued until her hoof felt the scarred side of his face.  Gently rubbing his maimed cheek that revealed muscles and some white teeth, Fluttershy stared deeply into Discord’s eyes and smiled softly.

She set her hoof back down and blushed madly as she realized what she had done.  ”S-sorry."  She whispered, looking down.  She realized she had spilled some of the apple slices on the ground when she flew to hug him.  She quickly picked up the mess and went over to the table to wrap it up for the bunnies to have as a snack tomorrow.  She grabbed another one of the apples she had cut up and quietly sat back down next to Discord, smiling back up at him as she offered the apples, eating a few slices herself.

Discord watched her every movement, including the hesitation as she saw his uncovered face. Instantly, he felt ashamed and went to grab his hood to cover himself, but as he went to grab it, he felt the gentle touch of a hoof against his face. He turned back to her with a gasp, as her touch ran downed his marred features. He wondered what was going through her mind, until he saw her smile. It was a small smile, but it was there, nonetheless.

He found himself confused as to what he should do, before she rushed off to get more apple slices. He hadn’t even noticed that she spilled them, but rather, he found a self transfixed in her smile. When she returned, he are another one, and gave his own smile. “Thank you, Fluttershy.”

Fluttershy jumped a little at his words, but quickly smiled up at him, letting out a soft nervous laugh.  Finishing up her apple slices and feeling content, she noticed Discord had scarfed his down.  ”Would you like some more?”  Fluttershy smiled meekly and took their plates back to the kitchen.

"Did they even feed you at the Carnival?  You’re famished!"  Fluttershy’s brow furrowed, "If you want something other than apples you can tell me…"  She smiled as she went back to the fridge and brought out more apples to cut up.  

Looking down and wondering quietly to herself, Fluttershy looked back up to Discord from across the counter, “Do you feel okay?”  She peeped, then quickly added, “I mean-!  Are you hurt?  Those cuffs looked tight and I have some ointment that might…”  She looked down and laughed nervously, “I’m sorry, I’m just rambling…”  She blushed and hid behind her hair again while cutting up the apples.

Discord nodded sheepishly. “Yes, if it wouldn’t be too much of a hassle, dear.” he answered. He was starving, and it had been a long time since he had anything decent to eat. The Carnival had barely kept him up with anything gourmet.

He rolled his eyes at the question, not meant to offend her, but the idea of the carnival and its staff weren’t pleasant thoughts. “They fed me to keep me alive, of course. Though they didn’t have your manners, Fluttershy. You’re much more pleasant company than those ponies were.”

He smiled at her. It was adorable watching her fly around trying to take care of him. He had never seen anyone so innocent in his life. “Just sit down, FLuttershy. I’m fine.” he replied. “I don’t want you worrying yourself to death.”

Chiune Sugihara. This man saved 6000 Jews. He was a Japanese diplomat in Lithuania. When the Nazis began rounding up Jews, Sugihara risked his life to start issuing unlawful travel visas to Jews. He hand-wrote them 18 hrs a day. The day his consulate closed and he had to evacuate, witnesses claim he was STILL writing visas and throwing from the train as he pulled away. He saved 6000 lives. The world didn’t know what he’d done until Israel honored him in 1985, the year before he died.

Why can’t we have a movie about him?

He was often called “Sempo”, an alternative reading of the characters of his first name, as that was easier for Westerners to pronounce.
His wife, Yukiko, was also a part of this; she is often credited with suggesting the plan. The Sugihara family was held in a Soviet POW camp for 18 months until the end of the war; within a year of returning home, Sugihara was asked to resign - officially due to downsizing, but most likely because the government disagreed with his actions.
He didn’t simply grant visas - he granted visas against direct orders, after attempting three times to receive permission from the Japanese Foreign Ministry and being turned down each time. He did not “misread” orders; he was in direct violation of them, with the encouragement and support of his wife.
He was honoured as Righteous Among the Nations in 1985, a year before he died in Kamakura; he and his descendants have also been granted permanent Israeli citizenship. He was also posthumously awarded the Life Saving Cross of Lithuania (1993); Commander’s Cross Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland (1996); and the Commander’s Cross with Star of the Order of Polonia Restituta (2007). Though not canonized, some Eastern Orthodox Christians recognize him as a saint.
Sugihara was born in Gifu on the first day of 1900, January 1. He achieved top marks in his schooling; his father wanted him to become a physician, but Sugihara wished to pursue learning English. He deliberately failed the exam by writing only his name and then entered Waseda, where he majored in English. He joined the Foreign Ministry after graduation and worked in the Manchurian Foreign Office in Harbin (where he learned Russian and German; he also converted to the Eastern Orthodox Church during this time). He resigned his post in protest over how the Japanese government treated the local Chinese citizens. He eventually married Yukiko Kikuchi, who would suggest and encourage his acts in Lithuania; they had four sons together. Chiune Sugihara passed away July 31, 1986, at the age of 86. Until her own passing in 2008, Yukiko continued as an ambassador of his legacy.
It is estimated that the Sugiharas saved between 6,000-10,000 Lithuanian and Polish Jewish people.
