I am soft-
mouthed sloe-eyed

Deer/girl here to
bleed. My mouth
tastes of Mycenae,
father. Tastes of
white rock tombs.

Father, oh! Father,
father. Look at me
my hair your hair
splayed over this stone.

My eyes your eyes
watching this knife.
The sharp edge of
it with the sea reflected.

My white dress and
myth-kings licking
the ocean-wet cling of it
with their gaze.

I am princess,
helpless, hungered for.

You’d eat me alive
for the wind.

—  Iphigenia Laments, Elisabeth Hewer














There are A LOT more untranslated games I want to show, could that turn into WEEK 2 ON SOME FUTURE DATE!?


I guess I’ll go back to translated games for now…….or not?


Sorry guys!!! I have been really inactive this last months… But here we go. This is the first part! I know I know its really sad :( anyways! Don’t forget to check out my new fanfic in wattpad here’s the link: REQUEST ARE OPEN!!! blessings xx

Whatever you do, don’t think about Carmilla Karnstein thinking that no one will love her for her because they can’t seem to love all of her. Ell loved the girl who promised her romance and adventure, but flinched and fled at the sight of the monster. Now, Carmilla thinks Laura just loves her because she plays the monster-turned-hero in Laura’s narrative and that Laura will only love her as long as she plays the hero. Just like how the Dean will only love Carmilla as long as she’s seducing girls and aiding in her plan to sacrifice girls. Don’t think about how the Dean’s words (”Stone cannot love flesh”) might be ringing in Carmilla’s ears now. Maybe the Dean wanted to point out more than the obvious, the fact that Carmilla will live forever and Laura’s mortal. Maybe what the Dean wanted to say was that no one will love her because they’ll pick only one part of her that they’ll choose to love and then they’ll romanticize and immortalize just that one aspect of her, because that’s what humans do. 

Don’t think about how Carmilla Karnstein, at the end of the day, is just a girl who wants someone to love her for her

That really is awesome of you, shows you're willing to sacrifice out of love to make your girlfriend happy. You've inspired me to try and become a vegetarian. Thank you TJ, as a matter of fact, you've inspired me to try to sacrifice for a girl in my life who's not even my girlfriend, because I adore and love her. Thank you TJ.

Uh, no. You should definitely get her to put up the ass first. You want to be cool in her eyes, not a saint. And don’t ever make concessions to someone who isn’t making any for you (unless that’s just your thing).

Jordan is so full of shit today. Like, seriously. You saw yourself what happened to Capsize, and you’re willing to put your goddess through that? You’re willing to sacrifice these girls, these children, whom with her last days Ianite made him swear to protect, for what? For Ianite to be chained to a damaged body? For her to be unable to ever grow to the strength she’s supposed to? Jordan, you FOOL.

For the first time..

I actually feel like I’m letting this one go and not fighting for us. Our lives are so different, which we both knew, and I was so ready to give up my life in exchange for hers. But maybe…for the first time…I don’t force, I don’t pressure, and I just trust the decision the other person made- regardless of how hard it is for both of us. The perfect, right girl is there but the timing couldn’t be worse.

he’s gone, he’s gone, he’s gone
you didn’t even say goodbye
and he saved you anyway,
god damn him.
you were never the hero here,
in this story.
the hero makes the biggest sacrifice,
gets the girl,
saves the day,
and he somehow manages
to check all three off because,
how else would it end?
you hate this because you care for him
(well, you did)
and you hate this because you love her
(you always will)
and you hate this because
the one thing you could change,
could control,
you couldn’t even do that right.
you couldn’t even save the day.
and he’s gone.
and you didn’t even get to say goodbye.

I see a lot of posts saying Pearl’s idea of how to fight for Rose to gain her love was unhealthy and I gotta say, that seemed like the whole point of the episode. Society nowadays likes to tell little girls to sacrifice for their partner because that’s what a “healthy” relationship looks like and that’s the only way they’ll be able to make it work. That they are the subservient and their partner is more important than you, even if they don’t hold you to the same standards. That’s what Pearl projects onto Connie.
And that is NOT healthy at all. A healthy relationship is mutual trust and respect and working through problems together, with love. Pearl was still fairly young during the battles, I think, and so she didn’t have much experience to go off of, just what she imagined would work best.
Steven, on the other hand, has had lots of people he could look up to for this sort of thing: his father and the gems’ love for him, his books, his friends in town, etc. He genuinely loved and cares for Connie on an equal level, and would never let her fight without him. His relationship with Connie stands at a sharp contrast to Pearl’s ideas and that’s the point. They showed an unhealthy, one-sided love and made it very clear that it was NOT ideal (Steven spent the whole montage worried and looking scared) and then showed the healthy one to say “Look, this is how it should be, fighting everything together.” And personally, I really applaud their abilities to put all of this in 11 minutes.

Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton

Review by Paige: 5/5 Stars

Black Swan meets Pretty Little Liars in this soapy, drama-packed novel featuring diverse characters who will do anything to be the prima at their elite ballet school.

Gigi, Bette, and June, three top students at an exclusive Manhattan ballet school, have seen their fair share of drama. Free-spirited new girl Gigi just wants to dance—but the very act might kill her. Privileged New Yorker Bette’s desire to escape the shadow of her ballet star sister brings out a dangerous edge in her. And perfectionist June needs to land a lead role this year or her controlling mother will put an end to her dancing dreams forever. When every dancer is both friend and foe, the girls will sacrifice, manipulate, and backstab to be the best of the best.
