Everyone has an Angel. A Guardian who watches over us. We can’t know what form they’ll take. One day, old man. Next day, little girl. But don’t let appearances fool you, they can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet they’re not here to fight our battles, but to whisper from our heart. Reminding that it’s us. Its everyone of us who holds power over the world we create.

#IF YOU THINK EITHER OF THESE THINGS COULD /EVER/ HAVE HAPPENED BEFORE CLARKE AND BELLAMY MET EACH OTHER—YOU ARE DEAD WRONG#the sheer fact of the matter is that the pragmatist and the idealist have rubbed off on each other in the best kind of way#they are no longer the black and white characters the left the drop-ship as#they are murky shades of gray; closer to each other than they could ever have dreamed [x]
DID I SHOW YOU GUYS MY BIRTHDAY CAKE????
With all the family that I’ve lost I could use a few friends.
"There," he whispered, nodding in her direction. "The girl on the bench. She’s empty."
Then I heard it, a faint sound like a finger moving on the lip of a crystal goblet. And it was coming from this girl. Slow as a snail, I moved to the girl in yellow and stopped a few feet in front of her. She was breathing shallowly, her eyes a lifetime away.
The girl sat as if hypnotized, and I stood in front of her. She was so young. It would have seemed more appropriate for us to choose a woman of my own age, but we needed an abandoned ship, and after all, James was in a body just as young. I was nervous. If I somehow floundered and could not cling to this child from the inside of her flesh, perhaps I would fall back into hell. She very well might be the last thing I saw before an eternity of pain.
— A Certain Slant Of Light, by Laura Whitcomb
Plenty of films have taken a stab at bringing Bible stories to life, from “The Ten Commandments” and “Jesus Christ: Superstar” to this year’s “Son of God” and “Noah.” But despite those movies’ different genres and tones, these films all tend to share one similarity: They have white casts, even though the Bible’s characters would have been from parts of Africa or the Middle East. Photographer James C. Lewis of Noire3000 | N3K Photo Studios has decided to rectify by presenting these iconic figures in a new light.
Lewis’ “Icons Of The Bible” photo series depicts some of the most famous characters from the Old and New Testament exclusively as people of color, including Simon Peter, Elijah, King Solomon and the archangel Gabriel. The series, which will be fully released in October, features 70 models who identify as either Asian, Native American, Hispanic, African, Middle Eastern, Black American and West Indian.
"I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes," Lewis told The Huffington Post. "The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view."
