*reaches for the sky*

After having a serious talk with his brother Nico about Nico’s secret child, Remy Holmes meets his girlfriend Lala Reyes in the guest bedroom of his brother’s penthouse. The young couple were temporarily staying in Nico’s penthouse. Their plan to rob a Sunlit Tides millionaire named Steven Brandt had failed miserably. Steven had brutally attacked Lala, and the money they’d stolen had been left behind in a motel room in Oasis Springs.

Lala concerned: Is your brother okay? He seemed very upset earlier.

Remy shrugs: He’s fine. Going through some weird stuff. 

Lala senses that Remy didn’t want to talk about his older brother…whatever conversation they’d had was probably private. 

Lala: Did he have a problem with my staying here?

Remy: I told you not to worry about that.

The couple stare out at the amazing view of San Myshuno. The crystal clear floor to ceiling windows gave the impression that the bright skyscrapers and starry sky were within a hand’s reach.

Lala softly: It’s really beautiful. I’ve never lived in a big city. Maybe it won’t be so bad here? Steven Brandt won’t find us in such a huge place. We can start brand new, Remy! 

Remy coldly: We won’t be here long, Lala. I’m not hiding from Steven Brandt like a scared f*cking rat. We’ll stay here until I come up with a plan. I’m going to kill him for hurting you. And I’m getting all that money back.

Since I don’t know how (I really, really don’t) to draw humans, I decided to try and draw only the mask for another b̶i̶r̶b̶ siren. So I present you the Quebrantahuesos (in Spanish), not sure how to translate it, tho. The actual bird is quite badass, since it feeds from the marrow inside the bones of their prey, reaching it by dropping said prey from high up in the sky. (Also sorry if it sucks ;-;)

Sorry for bastardising your beautiful art, Blizzard. Reach for the sky, kids, the sheriff’s back in town! He’s got a snake in his boot and a beautiful Bo Peep in his sights. I’d also like to do Roadhog as Hamm (and Mercy as legit Bo Peep…though Hanzo’s pretty cute). 

McCree had no chance against Han Peep’s Bo Staff.

It’s such a rare and incredible thing, to be alive.
     To laugh so hard your body forgets how to breath and scream because you can and change in every way without ever trying. To kiss and cry and eat dessert and stare at the ceiling and wonder if you’re happy enough.
     Think yes (flowers that grow without being planted and old dogs and children who reach out to touch the sky because they don’t know the limits of the world just yet)
     Think no (big storms that erase small costal villages and the boy with sad eyes who broke you so bad you don’t recognize your own reflection and stolen wallets in misfit hands)
     Close your eyes and think what you think and don’t ever stop.
     Because here’s the truth as I know it: to be alive is to be everything all at once. The yes and the no. This, but also that. Something so far beyond what we can see and touch and understand.
      How rare. How incredible.
I know it’s hard for you to talk to anyone right now, but how much do I wish I could tell you this: love isn’t everything. You don’t always have to live on the feeling of being in love. You are not a half of a whole seeking for your perfect other half; you are whole. You could be capable of creating masterpieces if you tried to reach for the sky. So please don’t get stuck in your hopeless circle, waiting for love - you are so much more than that person you said you are.

bellamy & clarke; from script to screen (x) ;; aka that time when the writers underlined and capitalized the word ‘they’ in the script to show that, even if clarke might believe it, bellamy refuses to accept that she no longer belongs with him and their people 

i want someone to know me. not like “oh yea i know her” but actually genuinely knowing everything about me. i want someone to think of me and instantly know that i hate peas. i want someone to know the way i usually hold my pinky up when drinking (only) cold things. i want someone to randomly hug me even when it seems like im holding myself up, just because they know im not really okay. i want someone to know how i twirl my hair constantly and how i have to wait for my food to cool down before eating it. i want someone to know when im walking toward them just by the sound of my footsteps. i want someone to notice the way i push my glasses up and i want someone to automatically ask me “you gonna take a picture?” before i even reach for my phone when we see mixed colors in the sky or things i feel the need to take pictures of just because they know the types of things i photograph. i want someone to know that my favorite cereal is frosted flakes and when i go on car rides i always forget to put shoes on because i love to walk around barefoot so much, its become a bad habit. i want someone to know that my absolute favorite animal is elephants and i want someone to look at my handwriting and know instantly that its mine. i want someone to know and understand the way that i am because sometimes i have no idea why im this way myself. i want someone to want to know what goes on in my mind. i wanna be so close with someone that they know every goddamn fact there is to know about me.

House Aesthetics

GRYFFINDOR the bonfire spitting stars// skinned knees and scabbed-over knuckles//sand seeping between your toes//wrists branded with matching tattoos//cigarette smoke and the pounding of drums//uncertainty tucked under your tongue like a beehive, like a knife, like something you wish would stop hurting you

{bonds as strong and as steady as the summer sun}

HUFFLEPUFF polaroids strung across your throat// dandelion seeds spinning across the skin of your palm//the sky crowded with stars//ferns reaching up to caress your face// minimalism and vintage clothes// tenacity rooted in you like a third lung// falling and the whole world tilting to catch you

{the world is as enchanted as you make it out to be}

RAVENCLAW calligraphy inked across the curve of your cheekbones// the personification of winter, all beauty and crisp edges// the flicker of computer screens// gowns sweeping across marble floors// standing still in a sea of people// the bass thudding through you like a second heartbeat

{stress cresting in a wave that threatens to drown you, but always comes just shy}

SLYTHERIN the moon hanging in the sky like a claw//fingers laced through chain link fences//girl cults and blood oaths//their bodies a staircase for your ambition//test answers scrawled across the skin of your thighs//distressed jeans and lipstick as red as your defiance// loyalty coiled like a snake across like crevices of your collarbone

{cowardly is just what we make you think we are until you give us a reason to be crafty}

When you are a fangirl and a shipper, you take ever freaking scrap you can to piece your ship together.

When I hear McCree’s line ‘Reach for the Sky’ I ALWAYS think of Hanzo’s SORA skin (which, as you guessed it, translates ‘SKY’ from japanese), and I really want to explore other similarities or ‘coincedences’ of their lines and skins more. (i plan to do the White Husbands one, the Mystery man and Young Hanzo skins too. just need to get my shit together)

The sunset as incredibly beautiful. It glowed through the spindly winter branches. They were reaching for the vivid sky, same as I. There is something captivating about forest sunsets, trapped beneath the trees. You can’t see the full splendor, but you see enough to know it’s there. I ran through the forest to get a clearer view, but it wasn’t until we topped the mountain that the real artistry unfolded. It was certainly a sight to behold.

bts and types of people they would fall for
  • seokjin: patient. someone who doesn't mind that dinner might be ready at eight rather then seven. someone who is there to stick by jin when he needs to practice the choreography for a few more hours, watching proudly without a complaint or sigh. someone who is there when jin works on his vocals, even though it's past midnight. someone who doesn't mind another round of mario kart, despite the fact that fancy dinner date was supposed to start thirty minutes ago. someone who is willing to stick by jin's side and support him no matter how long it takes for him to reach the sky.
  • yoongi: true. someone who is true to themselves, to what they believe in, to what they stand for. someone who is never willing to compromise on what they know what is right, even when everything is cornering them against a wall. someone who will be true to yoongi, when he is happy, when he is sad, when he is confused and ready to give up, when he is on cloud nine. someone that can look him in the eye and tell him he screwed up, but also someone who can deal with his raw emotions and can truly hold him close and promise that things will all be better in time.
  • hoseok: passionate. someone who loves what they do, and does what they love. hoseok himself is a very passionate person and he would want someone who shared the same fire as him. that doesn't equate to loud, and in your face, not really. but it means someone who is willing to give their all to the things that deserve it. someone who is willing to always push forward and never give up, even when it seems like the spark could be wavering. someone who will be there to light his fire when he feels down, whether it be with words, hugs, or kisses.
  • namjoon: open-minded. with great minds comes the great need to question all options. namjoon is not someone who follows tradition because he was simply told they were right. he wants to explore life and discover everything about the world, and try new things, live his life as unbiased as possible. someone who is just as willing to uncover all possibilities of life as he is, and someone who he can have real, honest discussions with while they lay out under the stars.
  • jimin: gentle. jimin is soft and caring, and he always puts others first. he would need someone to be there for him once. someone who isn't brash, or hasty; someone who is willing to work with him through his insecurities. someone who is patient, willing to listen, someone with a quiet voice, smooth as silk. someone who will stay up with him on bad nights and stroke the hair from his eyes, and someone who will stay up with him on good nights to be there for him with a soft smile and an even softer kiss.
  • taehyung: creative. someone who can make a story of anything. someone who sees the beauty in everything. someone he can stay up with for hours on end, imagining a world far far away. someone who is always surprising him with a new type of breakfast, a new picture for the living room, a new way to hug. someone who is always willing to see the creative genius in him. someone who does not think of him as weird, but a masterpiece, uniquely and beautifully crafted in the heavens above. someone who is always willing to try new things, and always willing to spice things up.
  • jungkook: independent. somebody who knows their own dreams, and is working for that, not anyone else's goals or plans. someone who is willing to march to the beat of their own drum, and shrug those off who mock them. someone who isn't afraid to be themselves, even when it seems like the hard thing to do. somebody willing to break away from the molds of society. someone who is fierecely independent, yet somebody who still, at the end of the day, needs jungkook's attention and affections.

“Have you ever felt like the world is too loud sometimes?”

“No. For me it’s always quiet.”

~

The soft crackle of the fire is the only sound breaking the deep silence. It smoothly cuts through the murky atmosphere of the night, and the sight of its origins is just as mesmerizing: waves of blazing fire helplessly reach out towards the sky, weak and strong, the flames rising aimlessly as they sway amongst the smoke.

Sitting there, alone and surrounded by trees and the calming waves of the bonfire, is numbing enough to make time still. The temperatures are low enough for a crisp breeze to tickle your cheeks, seeping through the layers of your clothes as your hands seek for warmth against each other. You can almost pretend you’re completely on your own, that voices are not coming closer and that the sound of hearty laughter isn’t overpowering the eerie quietness of nature.

Sixteen Small Steps to Happiness

1. push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am. go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise. 2. push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. wake up in the morning feeling re-energized and comfortable. 3. erase processed food from your diet. start with no lollies, chips, biscuits, then erase pasta, rice, cereal, then bread. use the rule that if a child couldn’t identify what was in it, you don’t eat it. 4. get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, fry an egg, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. sit and eat it and do nothing else. 5. stretch. start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. stretch your fingers. stretch everything. 6. buy a 1L water bottle. start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice. 7. buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen. write down everything you do, including dinner dates, appointments, assignments, coffees, what you need to do that day. no detail is too small. 8. strip your bed of your sheets and empty your underwear draw into the washing machine. put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash. make your bed in full. 9. organise your room. fold all your clothes (and bag what you don’t want), clean your mirror, your laptop, vacuum the floor. light a beautiful candle. 10. have a luxurious shower with your favourite music playing. wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. lather your whole body in moisturiser, get familiar with the part between your toes, your inner thighs, the back of your neck. 11. push yourself to go for a walk. take your headphones, go to the beach and walk. smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised how many smile back. bring your dog and observe the dog’s behaviour. realise you can learn from your dog. 12. message old friends with personal jokes. reminisce. suggest a catch up soon, even if you don’t follow through. push yourself to follow through. 14. think long and hard about what interests you. crime? sex? boarding school? long-forgotten romance etiquette? find a book about it and read it. there is a book about literally everything. 15. become the person you would ideally fall in love with. let cars merge into your lane when driving. pay double for parking tickets and leave a second one in the machine. stick your tongue out at babies. compliment people on their cute clothes. challenge yourself to not ridicule anyone for a whole day. then two. then a week. walk with a straight posture. look people in the eye. ask people about their story. talk to acquaintances so they become friends. 16. lie in the sunshine. daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn’t a thing. open your eyes. take small steps to make it happen for you. -EmmaElsworthy.com

🌟 Star Grounding 🌟

a quick guide on grounding with the stars / cosmos for you star gazers

🌟  it may seem a bit contradictory to ground with something in the sky rather than the earth. the focus is to ground as if you were an star in space, and to find the power and stability in yourself.

🌟  (to the best of your ability) find a view of the clear sky in the sky, and rest somewhere the starlight can reach you

🌟  if there is a specific star or constellation you want to draw energy from, have a clear view of it.

🌟  visualize:

every flare of light over your skin fills you and reacts, igniting power and new energy. it solidifies in your spirit and makes you feel whole.

you are significant, you have your own gravity. perhaps not the whole universe, but there are things that revolve around you.

you ground within yourself. old energies burn off and dissipate into the cosmos.

the light that over you brings new, fresh energy. it fills you with the bright and warm

🌟  when you are ready, let the star light fade its hold on you. you are not severing the ties harshly, only letting them fall away, and release.
