Rule 34 no not THAT one of the Death Note

Do you know what this means?

Spoiler Alert

It means because Light is possessed by a Shinigami he is protected from being killed by any other God of Death.

It means Rem couldn’t make good on her threat to kill Light.

It means that (at least up until the point Light switched the notebooks around) only Ryuk can kill Light.

It means Light could’ve killed Misa anyway and told Rem to go fuck herself.

Down The Rabbit Hole by Dina Makarita is a tunnel book that evokes the feeling of time passing as you fall into a deep REM sleep, when your most vivid and bizarre dreams occur.

The overall form is an expandable sequence of bright turning shapes representing depth of sleep, while the rotating shapes mimic the movement of the dreamer’s eye during REM sleep. Packaging includes instructions for assembly, a dream journal with interpretations, a photo book of the project, and all the necessary paper materials for creating your very own dream tunnel book.

He was done with this. Jo dug his fingers into the earth.

He was fucking done with this.

The not-vampire grabbed him by the back of the jacket and hauled him to his feet. He forgot the gun as he dug one shoe into the ground and spun around in her grip.

His fist rammed into her mouth.

He barely registered the piercing pain in his knuckles as he pivoted on the opposite foot and drove his knee into her gut. She doubled over with a gargle of pain, but her skeletal hand still caught his next fist. She staggered back and kicked out with one giant boot.

It jammed into his stomach, knocking the wind out of him. Jo stumbled back, gasping for air, his fists whipping up in defense.

His refocusing gaze caught on something white—a point of fiery pain digging between two of his knuckles. He quickly pushed it out, causing a new prick of pain and a dribble of blood from where it had been lodged.

It was a fang. It plopped onto the grass, blood and gum still clinging to the root.

When the not-vampire whipped her head up again, her free hand was clapped over her jaw. She snarled like a beast.

“I need a hostage,” she hissed, spraying blood from her mouth. “But not you, skinsack. You’re gonna die.”

DN Musical Lyrics Post: "Only Human"

(Since I didn’t see a lyrics post for the Ryuk/Rem song from the English demo, I figured I’d whip one up myself. I can’t rip the song to post to Tumblr, but you can find it as the second audio clip here!)

{RYUK:}
(sighs)
Look at how they crawl around
Upon the ground
Like little ants
{REM:}
Yes, but how they fascinate,
Confusing fate
With what is merely chance
{RYUK:}
Isn’t it a laugh?
{REM:}
Isn’t it a shame?
{RYUK:}
Thinking there is someone in heaven to blame
{REM:}
Yes, but even while blaming fate for the lives that they lead,
They hope for the lives that they need
{RYUK:}
Living every day ‘til the day they die
Never getting answers
{REM:}
Yet still asking why
Going through the motions as if there will be a reward
{RYUK:}
While we stay eternally bored!
{REM AND RYUK:}
They’re only human
They don’t see
Who they are is who they’ll always be
Only human, after all
{RYUK:}
So they push and they shove
{REM:}
With this thing they call love
{REM AND RYUK:}
‘Til they fall!
{RYUK:}
Isn’t it a farce?
{REM:}
Isn’t it a waste?
{RYUK:}
Struggling to face what can never be faced
{REM:}
Yes, but maybe death can release something more than we share
{RYUK:}
I really don’t know and don’t care
{REM AND RYUK:}
They’re only human
Standing still
Doomed to live pushing boulders uphill
Only human, after all
{RYUK:}
So they give and they take
{REM:}
Hoping someone will help break their fall
{RYUK:}
They will pray, curse, live die
Never knowing their truth is another man’s lie
{REM:}
Eat, sleep, love, hate
Like a leaf blowing in the wind
{RYUK:}
Watch them all vacillate!
{REM AND RYUK:}
They’re only human
They can’t see
{RYUK:}
All the years they could give you and me
{REM AND RYUK:}
Only human, after all
{REM:}
So they give and we take
{RYUK:}
‘Til their silly hearts break
{REM:}
Looking down from above
I’m intrigued by their love
{RYUK:}
So let’s call!
(spoken)
Hmmm, let’s call.
