toska [tohs-kah] - (noun) An untranslatable, Russian word – Vladimir Nabokov describes it best: “No single word in English renders all the shades of toska. At its deepest and most painful, it is a sensation of great spiritual anguish, often without any specific cause. At less morbid levels it is a dull ache of the soul, a longing with nothing to long for, a sick pining, a vague restlessness, mental throes, yearning. In particular cases it may be the desire for somebody or something specific, nostalgia, love-sickness. At the lowest level it grades into ennui, boredom.” (via les-espaces-et-les-sentiments)
Me every morning
Chris Pratt worked with Marvel and Children’s Miracle Network Hospital to arrange a special screening of Guardians of the Galaxy for patients, families and staff at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Wednesday. While the movie played, Pratt snuck out and dressed up as his character, Star-Lord. He spent more than three hours in full costume and handed out movie-themed toys. Pratt also visited patients in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases, and the Pediatric ICU, as they were too sick to join the movie screening that afternoon.
Pratt spent extra time with one patient, Dylan Prunty, who is a longtime Lego fan and recognized the actor’s voice from The Lego Movie. They spent about 10 minutes reciting different scenes from the film.

Raleigh looking at Mako
#sometimes i think about mako’s reaction this this whole situation (the bilingual stubbly supportive golden retriever situation) and i laugh and laugh and laugh #because if anyone has mused on the many consequences on drift partnership it’s mako mori #being as it pretty much informs her ENTIRE LIFE #even if she didn’t want to be a pilot ‘more than anything’ it’s still the underlying relationship of every important person in her life#the good (tams and stacks) the bad (hansens v1.0) and the ugly (hansens v2.0) #all her friends are either part of a drift pairing or study drift pairing or work to facilitate drift pairings’ #safe to say she’s read up on the subject #and she KNOWS to pilot Danger she has to pair up #and she KNOWS if this unseen becket person is being brought in that he’s going to be her drift partner #and just considering all the possibile styles of human that she’s prepared to accept in order to pilot #and this guy turns up? #it’s like the universe said ok mako we know we’ve given you a bad deal: the world kind of ended before you really got a chance to enjoy it #and then we took your parents #and then we gave your new dad a terminal illness #so yeah fair enough you’re heavy in the minus column #but here #WE GOT YOU A PRESENT #HE’S BRAVE AND TRUE AND LOVES YOU LIKE THE SUN MOON AND STARS TOGETHER #AND HE’S TALL AND WELL-SHAPED #AND HE’S A LITTLE BIT BROKEN BUT STILL GOOD #YEAH #STILL GOOD (harrietvane)

Justice League: requested by a few people
I once thought I could protect the world by myself, but I was wrong. Working together, we saved the planet, and I believe that if we stay together as a team, we could be a force that could truly work for the ideals of peace and justice.
