Lost Egyptian City Found Underwater After 1200 Years-Franck Goddio

1,200 years ago the ancient Egyptian city of Heracleion disappeared beneath the Mediterranean. Founded around 8th century BC, well before the foundation of Alexandria in 331 BC, it is believed Heracleion served as the obligatory port of entry to Egypt for all ships coming from the Greek world.

Prior to its discovery in 2000 by archaeologist Franck Goddio and the IEASM (European Institute for Underwater Archaeology), no trace of Thonis-Heracleion had been found (the city was known to the Greeks as Thonis). Its name was almost razed from the memory of mankind, only preserved in ancient classic texts and rare inscriptions found on land by archaeologists.

To everyone that I have been following that started posting about the Cut & Run series, I HATE YOU!!!! I hate you with the burring fire of a million suns!

I started seeing postings and tags, that I originally ignored. They started showing up more and more, so I got curious…

Welcome to wonderful world of Cut&Run. I started on my ride on Audible books now I also own all the books & patiently wait for more of both.

You built a cast around your broken heart, and you wondered if maybe he could be the one to mend it.

And now he is looking at who he gave his heart to, and doubt has crept in. 
Doubt.  The smotherer of love.  It sweeps in and whispers does he deserve you.  What has he done to keep this level of unwaivering loyalty.  Oh, I know you two have words.  You disagree.  But why do you stay with him?  How is he in anyway worthy of all this?
He lies.  He hides things from you.  Things that matter.  Things that could hurt you.
Things that, had you known, you could have made measures to protect yourself instead of entrusting him to level with you.  He does not trust you to keep your mouth shut.
How is this friendship?  How is it brotherhood?
It isn’t.  He is using you.  He is abusing your loyalty.  He cares only for how you can help him.  How you can amuse him.  If you cross him, you are dead to him.  Until he needs you again.
This is not love.  This is not devotion.  This is him using you till you have nothing left to give.  This is one sided, and you deserve better. 
For once in your life you can turn away from someone, because you chose to be with him.  He is not family.  He is not blood.
He is only a man.
A man you used to love.

two thumbs up & crying again

He turned, though, the same easy smile on his face, his feelings masked by his legendary patience.

Shock & Awe by Abigail Roux

After B&C, this just makes me so so sad because, how many times has Nick just shown that easy smile instead of what he was really feeling or going through?

(via tristinawright)

He’s shown that smile his entire life.

He had it at home to reassure his sisters, right before he went upstairs to get beaten by his father.

He’d shown that smile at school to reassure his teachers when they would notice him wearing long sleeves in May and ask if everything was ok.

He’d  shown that smile to commiserate with the other raw recruits at basic when tensions ran high and they’d all wanted to quit, but even basic wasn’t as bad as his drunken father.

He’d shown that smile to calm down his teammates when they were sharing a house in Jacksonville and everyone was ready to kill Ty for being so damn twitchy.

He’d shown that smile to his captors when he was a POW because he knew it would piss them off.

He’d shown that smile to the men he tortured during his last deployment because it fucked with his captor’s heads to have their torturer smile at them that way.

He’s shown that smile to Ty even though he wanted to tell him that he loved him.

He’s shown that smile to Ty even though he wanted to tell him that he was hurt by him.

He’s shown that smile to Ty even though he wanted to tell him that he was angry with him.

He’s shown that smile to Ty even though he wanted to tell him he couldn’t be his friend anymore.
