Nothings To An Ear

earrings hung, dangling
circling tongue, wrangling
with an earlobe
sweet and round
peach-like mound

oh, sidney,
why slow down?
this australian heart
needs an opera house;
our scorching summer
seeks an open blouse.

the word is sultry,
the world is paltry
to you, i whisper
with bated breath and thoughts of death.
crisp leaves, shivering sleeves, winter’s freeze
can’t compare

so take me there
i tell your ear, and touch it here
and smooth a hair, run a finger down, i swear
you taste bittersweet, flaky cream-crush foam
dark chocolate dreams of a featherdust home

you, perfect being of flesh and bone
the sweetest sound i’d ever moan
to the nicest neck i’d ever known
glistening sweat that shone and shone

Eu não aguento mais ficar aqui! Todos os dias um texto diferente, um reblog diferente, um like para ele. Eu tenho sentimentos também, eu também tenho um coração, eu também sinto e choro! Mesmo com seus defeitos, mesmo com seus bugs, eu só queria que você percebe que ele bate por você. Não estou pedindo para que sinta o mesmo por mim, mas sim que de mais valor no que eu sinto. Eu também te amo sabia? Eu também te desejo coisas maravilhosas. Você não imagina a quantidade de escritos lindos que tenho aqui para ti mas que possuem medo de serem mostrados. Mas eu não posso falar mais, primeiro porque você não veria como um sentimento de mim para você e sim como um ataque, e depois, ficaria aqui, somente aqui. Não iria para o seu mundo, aonde as minhas mais sinceras demonstração de amor deveriam estar. Abby está cansada de existir em silêncio, de ficar ali no canto, fingindo que não existe, por isso não tem mais o porque está aqui. O meu Tumblr é praticamente para você, só você não viu.

Twenty Ways to Kill a Turian

With apologies to Paul Simon. Seriously, Paul Simon, I am so very sorry.

The tank’s voice came from inside my head, it said to me
“Killing turians is easy when you fight them physically
I’ve slain a thousand and have diagrams to see
There must be twenty ways to kill a turian.”

It said, “You know that it’s my habit to intrude
Into your waking sleep with foreign thoughts on which you brood
I’m passing on to you my five-hundred-year blood feud
There must be twenty ways to kill a turian
Twenty ways to kill a turian.”

You get him with a shiv, Liv
Just snap his neck, Wrex
Knife in the headplates, Bates
Set his spirit free
Rocket to the face, Ace
You can choose the time and place
Just shoot out his knee, Lee
Set his spirit free

[repeat]

Tank said, “It pleases me so to see turians in pain
I hope you’ll go murder them and then do it again,”
I said, “That sounds fine to me, but could you please explain
About the twenty ways?”

It said, “We’ve already gone over this all night
I see you’re not pure krogan, just not perfect and not right,”
Then it decanted me and sent me crawling out to fight
To try the twenty ways to kill a turian
Twenty ways to kill a turian.

You get him with a shiv, Liv
Just snap his neck, Wrex
Knife in the headplates, Bates
Set his spirit free
Rocket to the face, Ace
You can choose the time and place
Just shoot out his knee, Lee
Set his spirit free

[repeat]

I’ve started watching Downton Abbey (Idk why, but I’ve never even considered watching it before now, I may lose my status as an English ponce because of this fact), and my thoughts so far are:

  • Mr Bates is adorable.
  • Sybil is an absolute bae, I love her so much already, omg
  • MATTHEW CRAWLEY, HOLY SHIT *insert heart eyes emojis here*
  • Hell yes, Branson, YOU START THAT REVOLUTION SON (btw, you are hella cute too)
  • Anna and Bates are cute, I hope they get married and have babies one day
  • The dowager countess is honestly the sassiest lady ever, omg

What is your favorite fic you have under your belt?

It depends on the day! 

The Sweetest Morsel is my favorite Marauder fic because it’s just the marauders going back and forth doing what they do, and James was there, even though he wasn’t, and it was so much fun to write.

Love, Unbroken is my favorite to date though because it is so utterly Lily.


What’s your favorite headcanon you use in fics?

A few random ones I love are James wearing horrible smelling cologne and Sirius swearing in French when he’s flustered.

What’s the detail you wait on bated breath for readers to notice?

How meticulously I comb through dialogue (with a few exceptions) to make sure each character has a unique voice I have character sheets with dialogue rules and on the near-to-final highlight every line of dialogue and run through to make sure things are where they need to be.

Four Forgotten Women of the Civil Rights Movement
Gabriela R. highlights four women of the Civil Rights Movement we should all know.

“It’s common knowledge (and if it isn’t, it should be) at this point that the United States’ educational curriculum, while varying from state to state, has failed dramatically in teaching students the truth about American history.”

Read about these four women here, and follow us on tumblr!

6, 11, 15! ^_^

Eeep! Thank you, friend! *-*

6. What’s the detail you wait on bated breath for readers to notice?

That’s a tough one, actually! It’s pretty much any detail I decide to incorporate into a certain chapter. If I had to choose a ‘detail,’ it would probably be the presence of a ‘toy dog’ that I incorporated into my first fic, ‘Pressure Point.’ It’ll reappear at some point in any of my longer fics in different forms, so I always hope that people catch that!

11. What’s a fanfic idea you haven’t done yet?

Ughhhhh SO MANY. I have so many ideas that it’s ridiculous. I’d probably say that the top ones right now are when Roy gets the short end of the stick XD I have a few in mind that I have plotted in my head that I may write one day X3

15. Give us a snippet of something from your WIPs!

I’ve posted it below the cut *^* Here’s a small snippet from the next ‘Hellbound’ chapter.
