Christmas present for Sahar

What do you love about him?

Oh boy, where do I even begin? I think the most interesting part of Klaus and the reason I love him the most is because of his complexity. I like characters who are layered and people can’t really agree on. The most fun part of Klaus as a character is that he’s so layered and carry so much contradictions in him that make him at a constant war with himself. I love how he goes from murderous and devious, to broken and sad within the span of an episode. I like how ridiculously over protective he gets over his siblings but also he’s their biggest bully. I love how he hates Mikael beyond belief but he is so much like him. I love how he’s a monster who is capable of so many horrible things, but also an artist who can make beautiful things. I love how he’s a charmer, who knows exactly what to say and when to say it to woo a woman but also has very little notion of how to love and how to open up. (via lostheart)

Christmas present for Michelle

What do you love about her?

I love her insight of morality, I love that she’s the consciousness of the show and that she always sees the good in people, no matter how bad they are and no matter what they’ve done. And I love that she has that insight of morality, she believes in goodness even though she’s been through so much herself and she is kind instead of bitter. And I love that cami isn’t scared of the supernatural, even though it would be the most natural reaction to be afraid. But she doesn’t see them as creatures of horror stories but as people who are just as human as she is and she tells all of them what she thinks even though they are so dangerous. I love how she stands up and fights for those she loves and cares about. She is broken, and I love watching how a human gets slowly corrupted by this world because she is a good soul, and yet she is fascinated by darkness and gets tangled in this whole world. So I love that she is good but that she doesn’t flinch away from people like the Mikaelsons, she’s rather fascinated by them. And I love how she feels sympathy and empathy for everyone, that she understands everyone and doesn’t necessarily judge people for the bad things they did even though she doesn’t excuse them. But she understands their pain and understands why they’ve snapped. (via stydia-allisaac)

Magazine Covers Coincidentally Fit Over Classic Paintings by Eisen Bernardo

on Behance | Artist on Tumblr

Mag + Art is a very clever Tumblr blog by Filipino multimedia producer and writer Eisen Bernard Bernardo that pairs fashion magazine covers with classical paintings. Eisen is a graphic designer and children’s book illustrator based in the Philippines.

Right now, I am a mixture of very happy and very sad. And I am trying to figure it all out, all these feelings and emotions and words and thoughts, and what they all mean. Everything I feel is a contradiction of itself, and I do not understand any of it.
—  I’m not really numb, but I wouldn’t say I’m exactly happy or sad.
