Dylann Roof Federal Trial 11/07/16

Sorry in advance for the long post. I just wanted to make sure you guys know everything that happened in there,  from someone other than the media. 

6:30 am

I showed up to the court house to scope the area. There was 2 police officers at every corner of a building, and 6 at the exit and entrance of the court itself. 

7:25 am

Me along with 5 other people lined up outside the court house, until it opened.

7:40 am (approximately)

Reporters start running toward the court house exit, and started snapping pictures. The transport van was in there. The officers closed down a big gate so the van wasn’t visible to the public. They didn’t want anyone seeing or getting pictures of Roof. 

7:55 am

We were let into the courthouse. Went through security, then a lady took us all up to court room 6. There was two separate waiting areas, one for the media, and another one for the general public.

8:20 am

Last general public people came in. It was a total of just 8 of us. 

8:45 am

They issued us a pass, and we were escorted inside the court room, general public had one isle, media had 4 , and victims/victims family had the whole right side of the court room. The first isle on the defendant side was left open for Roof’s family, however none of them showed up. I will add that Bruck came up to the general public section and started up conversation with us for less than 5 minutes.

9:00 am

Court is now in session, Roof was not in the room at this time. People were talking to each other throughout the court room. Judge was quiet reading a piece of paper. While Roof’s attorney was talking to someone on the prosecution side.

9:10 am

Side doors opens, and Roofs walks in looking straight ahead. He is seated with his back facing the general public and media. 

Side note: I just want to share exactly what happened when he walked in because its something I will never forget. As they opened the door you can hear the chains and also his feet dragging, at that time no one knew if it was him because he was out of sight. He walked through the door and the atmosphere in that room changed completely. I feel like everyone stopped breathing, no one moved, no one said a thing, its was almost like there was no one in that room. I can still hear the chains and his feet dragging, and the thought of it gives me major chills. As far as his appearance goes he looks like he did a  year ago. Bowl cut still there, also he is very skinny, doesn’t look like he gained any weight. I will add that his eyes looked very swollen, and i did not see the scar that Dwayne supposedly left him. 

9:12 am

Judge reads the statement posted above. Roof is looking straight at him the whole time. The back of his head is straight in front of me and someone next to me pointed out his bald spot. He has a small bald spot right on the back of his head.

9:20 am 

Roof stands up and is escorted out the court room. Looking straight the whole time. He never looked to see the victims/victims family, media, or general public. Shortly after he was escorted out, victims/victims family were allowed to leave first, then we were led out. 

12:15 pm

Roof was transported out of the courthouse, in the van showed above. With two police officers in the vehicle.  


One year after my original plan to finish this cosplay, i can finally say that Troll Tier Dave is complete! Ive been wanting to cosplay something that no one else has cosplayed yet, and ive always been inspired by the species swap au’s, but none of those au’s ever had a Dave in god tier( and to hell if i was going to pass up the chance to make wings for him). So i took my desire to cosplay Dave Strider and put a “you are making this way more complicated than it needs to be” twist on it. and after hours of staring at dozens different types of butterfly wings, my concept for Troll tier Dave was forcefully, but successfully pulled into existence.
more pictures of my sister and i ==>

Shout out to all the cool kids i met at Anime Midwest this year! Hopefully i will get a chance to see you around sometime ^^

Founder's Song (piano cover)
Founder's Song (piano cover)

from now on i dont wanna hear any more post apocalyptic fiction unless its told in the form of a catchy song

chords i used:

     C                                                     Am
We had to leave our place because the world was dyin’

       C                                                 Am
And everyone that wasn’t dead spent all of their time cryin’

        F                                                           C
Our ways had failed, nature had failed, we made a lot of errors

          F                                                    G
The Founders had some new ideas that made everything better

          F                                                             C
Our Founders dreamt of this island, our ships landed on its shore

                              F                                                     Dm                       G
They built our wonderful Guardian to keep destruction from our door

       C                                                  Am
The Hiders fear these new ideas, but do your best to help them

            C                                                          Am
‘Cause just outside is darkness and death, disease, monsters, and problems

      F                                                            C
So come out of your hiding place, come out of the darkness

                               F                                            C
And we’ll find a new way to live by the light of the Founders

I Taste You in My Glass

Anon asks:

Hello! May I have a Chandler Riggs imagine? Possibly one whereas he’s dating Brianna but has feelings for the reader—happy ending, please!

(Hi! I changed Brianna to an OC out of respect towards Brianna, hope you don’t mind. Thanks! Also I’m the slowest writer in history, sorry!!)

I Taste You in My Glass

3:14 AM

We fought again

3:15 AM

She blamed it on you, bullshit

3:20 AM

I’m going to talk to her

4:37 AM

Maybe we shouldn’t talk anymore.

The buzzing of my phone woke me up, my room blinking up by flashes of light.  I groggily threw a hand to the direction of it, thinking it was my alarm that I so loathed. Yet, when I saw the messages on my lock screen I wished for it to be my alarm. I was wide awake, my heart thumping and my mind was racing a hundred a second. My back fell back onto my matrass, I looked up to the dark ceiling and felt myself covering my eyelids with shaking hands. Palms digging into them. Chandler Riggs was so good at making the world stop.

Stronger Than You (Undertale Parody Response)

Response and lyrics based to this post because I loved it but I don’t have a voice for sans so.


I didn’t know what I got into
Somehow I can’t go back even if I really wanted to
So what more can I do?
Here at the end, it’s just me and you

I never wanted to play by all the rules
A knife in hand, I’m playing out the part of the fool

So here we go, you can judge me thoroughly
It’s too late for apologies.

Go ahead and just hit me since you’re able
We know my determination is unstable
I’m not even mad because I keep on dying
But I don’t even know why I’m trying.

This isn’t what I want, yet it’s what I asked for
Curiosity over all my morals
I took away our perfect, happy ending
Resetting the world despite the warnings

Right now I’m made of LOVE ahh… of LOVE ahh…

I know who you are, you remember who I am
We knew that once in a timeline, we had grown to be good friends
And yet I killed your brother without giving him a chance
Every time you throw me down, I hope you kill me once again.

So go ahead and just hit me since you’re able
All the sin that I can feel is unbearable
If I could only hit you once it would be over
But the consequences last forever

The flowers are in bloom as the birds will tell
It’s a beautiful day to be burning in Hell
You gave me advice, I chose genocide,
But I know how to make it right.

I am made of LOVE ahh… but I’ll give up for you.

vibes i’m getting from the htgawm murder clique after 2 episodes…tell me how accurate i am

  • wes: the awkward boy next door, 0 social skills, just trying to be nice but would probably trip on himself trying to help you
  • connor: the flirty narcissist and token pretty guy, pretends he has no feelings but actually has at least 17 at any given time
  • michaela: bamf, 10/10 would stab you with a stiletto, basically hermione granger but cooler
  • asher: literally can’t? keep his mouth shut about stupid jokes? on one hand you want to punch him and on the other you want to hug him
  • laurel: quiet and observant, totally underestimated, deserves better 2kforever

tbh i couldn’t decide which one i liked more, so here, have both, both is good.
