Signal boosting in case anyone needed to know this. 

This is informative as heck. Show this to everyone!

This is actually some great info! Why can’t they teach this kind of thing in school??

Anytime someone says they’re not okay with the Plan B pill I want to show them this.

Probably going to post more Mina and Akura scenes later.

vinceff7:

That manga is full of stuff that shows what true love is really like.
The effort. The work. The ups and downs. The sticking with one person no matter what. Its probably one of the more accurate romance stories I have read, despite the rampant action and vampirism.

This scene was the one that really made me fall in love with this series.
Students at Akira’s school are being vampirised against their will and Akira confronts Mina about it.
Mina lies to Akira about any knowledge she has about who is doing this, and Akira knows it. So Akira goes to protect the students one night, which makes Mina think he has turned against her.
Mina attacks Akira, thinking she would rather be killed by him than live without him.
During the battle a cross falls and nearly stakes Mina to death, but Akira jumps in the way to protect Mina, getting impaled himself.
And Mina immediately bursts into tears, realizing her lies and actions may have cost her the love of her life, Akira.
But Mina learned the lesson… and in 11 more volumes of this thing, she never lied to Akira again. 
If lying is the only way you know to keep the one you love, you are doing something wrong, all you do is push them away. Learn the lesson.

Don’t ever sell yourself short. I used to. I thought what I felt was enough to make or break something.  But relationships take two.
I am a good, healthy, strong, well educated, gainfully employed man with a lot of love and dedication to give.
I deserve the kind of woman who never tires of looking at me, no matter how often she sees me.
If your partner doesn’t show you love… then how much you love them means nothing but heart break. Being selfish is okay if you just keep getting hurt.

I know no one actually reads them, but I hope somebody learns something from them.

Here they discuss the idea that thirty percent of people surveyed said they would become vampires to live forever. 
And Mina addresses it as such : eternity can drown you without something to hold onto. Something or someone who can hold you up. Treat you right. Be honest. Be monogamous. Be there for you in your darkest moments and never be held back by any damn thing or body.

So… are you with someone like that? Are you in love with someone like that? 

Someone once told me that to be with someone other than who you love was settling for something less. Let me ask you this: is it settling when the person you are trying with holds you up, is there for you, doesn’t lie or cheat, and genuinely shows you they love you back?  How is being with someone who makes you better settling?

Eternity is longer than our lives are, but life is still hard as hell. Find someone who wants to give you the world instead of a lie. Be true to yourself. The love will come when you do.

Here Akira is having a hard time due to the death of a friend…
And Mina just wants to make him smile.
Akira’s smile is Mina’s refuge. Akira being whole makes Mina feel at peace.
Mina is trying hard to support Akira on one of his worst days. She isn’t running. She isn’t turning to someone else. She is doing everything she can to raise up the love of her life.
That’s what we all should be looking for. Someone who is there when you need them most. Not someone who hangs you out to dry alone.

One of the reasons I love Once Upon a Time is that it dispels a lot of the Disney BS that gets instilled in little girls about fairy tale love.
It shows that true love, true commitment, takes a ton of work and sometimes even the most heroic individuals have to go to dark places to do the right thing or hold on to their loved ones.
We should all be allowed to be the hero of our own love story. But that requires that your partner look to you for that heroism. 
I have not always done the kind thing. But I do feel like I always did the right thing, at least what I thought was the right thing at the time. 
So what I want is someone who can understand that. Someone who forgives, forgets, and moves forward with me rather than turning to another. Rather than running away out of fear.

I want someone who calls out my name when they are looking to be saved.
