(not really but u get me)

All the urban legends came true at once.

Of course, I was six pages deep in a tax audit at the time. Chewing a pen when a rash of mothers with broken backs were rushed to the hospital, courteousy of uncareful feet smashing on cracks. Doctors, unsure at the time, blamed osteoporosis.

It was watched pots that remained cool. Or salt thrown over a shoulder that - for a second - showed a devil’s eye. Or it was the alligators. Don’t get me started on the alligators.

But something was the first whisper of what we’d woken up. Nobody wanted to say it out loud, because it sounded so ridiculous. It was a secret that swelled in our cheeks. Phrases we had always said that went silent.

All the hauntings came true. We had photograpic evidence of spirits. That’s probably what started the mass hysteria.

Some things took longer. Rubbing a statue for luck or breaking a mirror. Delayed response. One bad day turns into a bad month. Then you’re at the local witch place begging for a respite - seven years of bad luck?! - and she’s shaking her head. Nothing to be done.

Oh, the witches. The funny thing is that when people have always called you a witch, they’re surprisingly needy when you turn out to be one. When the world shifted, little towns who avoided one woman for her witchiness were now flocking to her because their legend had made her become one.

Pens mightier than swords. Avoiding groups of certain numbers. When a knife drops, we all hold our breath for the fight. A fork means company will show up, confused how they arrived.

It got better for a moment, for a breath, while we figured out the rules of it. What was a legend and what was myth. What kind of faith was big enough and what was too big. Some legends only effected certain areas. Some only certain people. We sunk money into infrastructure for once to clear up cracks. Stepped over salt in every building. Sold amulets like trinkets. For a second, we almost got our feet under us.

And then it got worse. Sometimes the company you invited was strange, unhuman. You had to wear iron. We had loved our cryptids until they came down from the mountains, worse than we could have predicted. Bowls of milk were on every window sill but most of them rotted.

In the books, we had all read about the end of the old ones. The unspeakable ones, who went off into the hills one day. Who we cannot say the name of. Who did not exist in the land of buses or planes. Who can steal you if they know your name, who can never lie but do a good job of it anyway.

We were not ready. The Folk showed up through the thin veil, and they were already laughing.

And they were just the beginning.


I’ve been rereading your story. I think it’s about me in a way that might not be flattering, but that’s okay.
                  We dream and dream of being seen as we really are
                  and then  f i n a l l y  someone looks at us and sees us truly and we fail to measure up.
Anyway: story received, story included.
You looked at me long enough to see something   m y s t e r i o u s   under all the gruff and bluster. Thanks.
                         Sometimes you get so close to someone you end up on the   o t h e r   s i d e   of them.

can i just say i went into vld liking the k/l ship but then lance made that comment "whatever drop out" after keith had said "when i got booted from the garrison i felt lost" and that went out the window it turned from rivals bettering eachother into one person being purposely callous and antagonistic just for the sake of some percieved rivalry i just wanted to get that off my chest,,, thank u

ahhh no that’s okay I understand ;; I started watching Voltron shortly after it came out, and I had just taken a semester off college right before due to medical leave. I was struggling with all this baggage and the sickening feeling I wasn’t cut out for school, couldn’t handle it, likely to be kicked out, felt like I had lost my sense of purpose and ended up isolated, ect. I still have difficulty believing I’ll ever graduate or forge relationships properly. 

So when Lance called Keith a “dropout” it really hit me in the gut and turned me off from the ship as well. I think there are times when he was being quite needlessly malicious without understanding how he could’ve really hurt Keith. See: Lance insisting he should be the leader while accusing Keith of lying for attention, deliberately spiting Shiro’s last wishes and trivializing his relationship with Keith when this is the greatest loss that boy has ever suffered and he’s still so deeply grieving. 

It was incredibly unnerving and upsetting to me, but again, he was being immature and had more to learn about supporting others and the meaning of a team. But I’m glad to see he’s really working past that and the rivalry isn’t so much of a thing anymore. Their dynamic is in a much better place now, and it’s so reassuring to see.

Don’t get me wrong I really love bts! But the vogue thing kind a sound unrealistic? I’d be really happy for them if it happens but the U.S vogue magazine is like the most famous magazine in the world. There’re A LOT of other more famous artists that bts whom haven’t been on the cover or even had a chance for an interview... of course I’d be happy if it happened but I think it be too soon?

uhmmm. who said bangtan will be on the cover of Vogue though?!?! Let me explain where this Vogue thing came from. In this interview with Chosun after the AMA performance: http://news.chosun.com/site/data/html_dir/2017/11/21/2017112103398.html

It was mentioned in the second paragraph that bangtan is scheduled to have a photoshoot with American Magazine Vogue. That’s it, that’s the one and only time it was mentioned, just one sentence and then nothing else was mentioned of it anywhere else. So technically it’s not confirmed or anything, but like this is an interview news post. I dunno with Korean news lately I realized it’s a hit and miss. 

So like… it’s probably still a vague possibility. But with all that bangtan has achieved recently, I realized that anything is possible. If you told me last month that bangtan will be on Corden, Kimmel, Ellen… AND perform on AMAs in November, I’d think there was absolutely no way that was true. But now we here.

hey this is probably a really stupid question but are the postcards free? ;-;;

Yes, the postcards will be free! It’s a holiday card from me to followers to spread both my appreciation and the seasonal iwaoi love. ( ˘ ³˘)♥

The only drawbacks are: (1) I’m getting a limited number printed (cuz if I ordered, like, 50 of them and only 5 people signed up my ego might never recover lmao) and (2) I’ll have to prioritize domestic U.S. sign-ups because I am, unfortunately, not entirely made of money. 

edit: to clarify, sign-ups aren’t open yet, but I’ll make another post with a link for a Google Form probably late next week or first week of December.


do you ever just get really fucking depressed and feel so alone and sad and just wanna curl up and die. bc that’s honestly me rn. i’ve been getting so many hate anons lately and it just really sucks. my life in general isn’t great right now and i just feel like i can’t do anything right anymore. i just wanna cry but nothing will come out. i need someone. i just feel like I don’t have anyone to talk to because I don’t want to be a bother. I don’t want to annoy people or have people thing I’m just a crybaby. this is stupid and y’all probably don’t care I just… idk. I’m not feeling good tonight.

Why is it so hard to find Star Wars fans who don’t ship Reylo but also don’t insult ppl who do? I’m trying but I can only find Reylo lovers or OMG HOW CAN U SHIP THAT SHIT kind of people. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t ship them and I really don’t want to see the ship on my timeline, but I also don’t want to see reylo haters… Dunno if I’m making any sense. I really need to follow more Star Wars blogs but it’s getting hard to find them.

Sajeon-nim, Jungkook has in the past mentioned he really wants to get tattoos, could u tell us a little about tattoo discrimination/ social stigma in korea? I heard amber has to wear long sleeves bc they can't be broadcasted on tv

It runs deeper than just censorship. There is a huge amount of stigma against tattoos in Korea, primarily because of its close association with gangsters. The stereotype is that if a Korean man has a back or full body tattoo, then he’s probably in a gang. Not necessarily true but that’s stereotypes for you.

Most jobs will require you to either not have a tattoo at all or to cover it up at all times. If it’s small and not easily visible, then it’s not that much of a problem. Younger people don’t care too much about it, but it’s not super popular like it is in the west.

And if you’re asking this because you have a tattoo and you’re worried about how you’re going to be perceived in Korea… I mean, in a lot of cases, most Koreans consider foreigners outside of the social hierarchy. People may judge or be rude, but they won’t really care. Shit is different when you’re a Korean though.

Me, personally? I don’t care. Tattoos are like ear piercings or any other form of body modification.

tbh i feel like even if ji/kook aren't together atm, there is a pretty high possibility that jk likes/loves jm (obviously we dont know anything for sure) even if jm doesnt love him back (obviously he does but in a boyfriendy way) or if he does and they haven't done anything about it bc of the way that jk acts around him vs the other members (who he also loves but u know what i mean) im probably delusional but let me know what you think (ps i love your blog have a nice day!)

i can see that as well. i think it’s highly plausible that jk likes/loves jimin. it’s just a general feeling that i get from him. and i don’t think it’s legit. but i also think that it very well could be. and i think it’s plausible that jimin could love him back. but we don’t really know the specific type of love. andidk what i’m saying lol. (and thank you!!)

Umm Jay I probably have some fanart of your AUs villainous when your off ;; But when your back you probably get to see it hopefully, And if it's okay if I get a little inspiration from your oc skribblie to make a character? I will tag you as inspiration for the character. Is this okay with you? Oh and have a wonderful day Jay =^^=

i’ll see them when im in italy - i got internet there u know XD
but ah mmm…..
It really depends how much of it is an inspiration. im happy to inspire, but there’s a thin line between an inspiration and something that looks just like my character. I have a high preservation with my original characters and concepts and it does hurt me a lot when i sometimes see blatant copy cats ^^;;;;;  but i hope you have a wonderful day too cosmic boo
