Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year. 

When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.

But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)

At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.  

Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”

Amen to that, Hugh.

Messy sketches of Shiganshina trio heads. I realized I never tried drawing Eren or Mikasa.

#I wish I were tiny and petite sigh  #short people//////

Eren practices for his big moment.

"Okay, so—
I should probably begin at the start
I’m not sure how this happened but
Look, you have a nice heart
Girls like to hear that crap, right?
No?
Fuck, okay, um, let me try again—
I’ve known you for most of my life
And I find it kinda strange
'Cause once you were just one of the guys
Then my feelings for you changed

And I’m not sure if it was Kirschetein
Because honestly it made me sick
When he tried to ask you out before
I mean the guy’s a fucking dick

Look I don’t want to be too forward
But I don’t know what else to do
Guess what I’m trying to say is
I might— no, okay, wait—Look, I think you’re pretty hot
And you can sorta kick some ass
I mean you could definitely kick my ass-
—Like, seriously, it’s a little fucking creepy—

And you wear a nice bright scarf
And I mean that must mean I have a chance
If you’re willing to wear that stupid thing
Maybe I have a shot at romance- right?

I’m not that great with words
And I don’t wanna be black and blue
Just understand where I’m coming from
I sort of have feelings fo— fuck

Mikasa I’m not the brightest
and I’m not creative at all
But you need to know I think of you
More than I do about Titan Fall—
 I don’t look like a horse
You gotta give me credit for that
And when it comes to other guys
I’m sure I fall pretty flat

But if I wanna be honest here
I’ll finally listen to my mom
Because I guess she was right about a lot of things
Like who I want to take to prom

I’m trying not to be awkward
But there’s only so much I can do
I guess when it comes down to it
What I’m trying to say is
I think I fucking love you”
