Down-Below

Artemis of the Underworld

I imagined myself the moon
like a pure, sick sadness.
Out from the deep, I caught those
two lantern eyes; wide as the Marina
is deep. My goddess.

Every day, her auburn hair is brighter than
the smoke of your dreams.
Down below, dull Cerberus, with his
drooling lips, guards the river.
I loved her in the summer

(But never after, because she did not stay.
Oh my love, my love, I dreamed and dreamed.)

And in another country, the soil is not
so red or so clean. She stirs the hunt,
brown hands shaking. I put the flowers
in her hair - I, alone, dared.
No wolves, and no deer.

They do not live here, and the bear plunders
another sky. Here, I watch the dust gather,
far removed from the old dream
that belongs to you, and to all men.
My love, my goddess, she bites nobody

Wild-eyed and deep-lunged,
she brings me to my knees.

The Dead Rise

Okay I was thinking about corpse bride and got a cool idea that is kinda lame but I don’t care so here you guys go

Pairing: Nalu

————————-

Lucy frantically stuffed books into her bag as she listened to the bloodcurdling screams down below on the streets of Magnolia. She had seen them, the monsters, rise as she sat at her writing desk by the window. People who walked the streets were sent into a panic and soon the whole town was shaken.

The sight was enough to get Lucy packing and ready to hit the road. She was nearly done as well when she heard a groan coming from the fireplace. The pit floor had been moved and an awful stench of death filled the room. She backed up to desk, holding her pack and grabbing a pair of scissors in on her desk. A blue hand shot up from the dark hole and soon a figure was crawling up. She heard the monster groan and she charged, scissors raised as she let out something like a war cry and terrified scream put together.

The cold blue hand grabbed her hand and she gulped as she watched the figure step into the light. Her breath hitched as she stared at the boy in front of her. His face was the colour of uncharted water, lips an eerie dark purple with hair a dull rose colour. His dark eyes stared into hers and she noticed the rotting flesh that was beginning to peel from his cheek.

“What the hell are you doing?” The boy asked while plucking the scissors from her, “You could kill somebody with these.”

Lucy blinked. The monster was just a boy, but he was… he was dead. She watched as he placed the scissors down and fear tugged at her gut.

“You-you’re a zombie!” Her voice shook as she pointed at him.

“That’s really rude.”

“Stay away you monster!” She yelled and backed away to her desk, hands frantic as they searched for another weapon. Lucy pulled up a dangerous ruler.

“Keep back. I’m warning you!”

The monster in front of her sighed, “I don’t have time for this, okay? I’ll play with you later but right now I’ve got a wedding to go to.”

Lucy faltered as he turned around and headed out of her room, her brown eyes finally noticing the dusty suit that he wore. She threw her bag down and followed him, ruler still in hand.

“What wedding? Are you trying to spoil someone’s special day? You’re absolutely horrible,” she shouted and poked his back with the ruler.

He turned around and eyed her like she was crazy. Lucy sucked in a sharp breath, preparing herself for a fight now that the dead now faced her. She wished she was wearing a helmet so he couldn’t sink his teeth into her head.

“Listen, Breather,” he started, “I know what you’re thinkin’ but I seriously don’t have the time of night so just go back to your room and be scared, alright?”

“I’m not going to let you ruin someone’s wedding!” She stated but her voice shook and Lucy really didn’t want to fight this monster but when love was at stake…

“Whatever,” he said with annoyance lacing his tone and walked out with Lucy following right behind shouting at him to stop.

Outside was utter chaos. People were running down the street while fires that had started burned down houses and Lucy thought that she should really go back and lock her front door. She could hear sirens blaring and the faint sound of screams in the distance, and Lucy tightened her grip on her ruler. The dead had risen and this surely meant that this was the start of the end of the world.

“Stupid breathers,” the monster in front of her muttered and she couldn’t help but feel slightly offended.

“What do you mean stupid? We are running for our lives cause y-you zombies are gonna eat us!”

“Really? Certainly looks that way,” he said sarcastically.

“Yes it does look that way!”

“Oh right, cause’ you see so many of us tearing up and eating you breathers right now.”

“No but-”

“Save it. Just go on back home you weirdo.”

“Excuse me,” Lucy yelled and got in front of him, “I am not going anywhere and just letting you go around and eat everybody.”

“I’m not going to eat people. I don’t do that!”

“Yeah right,” she said, poking her ruler into his chest and she nearly had a heart attack when it sunk through him. Lucy backed away, leaving the wooden measuring stick inside him. He wrapped his large hand around the end of the ruler and jerked his hand, pulling out the ruler that she had buried in his chest.

“God! You breathers are so annoying,” he shouted, stepping closer to the blonde who shrunk back in fear now that she was left defenceless. It was the end, Lucy thought. It had to be. This zombie was going to have her for dinner and she never even going to get to publish her novel. His face loomed above hers, eyes full of anger and mouth opening ready to feast on her flesh and brains.

“No!” She cried, closing her eyes in fear. Then Lucy heard the church bells ringing, the sound echoing throughout the town.

This is so dumb but I found it hilarious and just yeah. Have a sample from my imagination and I hope you liked it :3

benzisario says:

When everything comes down to it, we are in need of a lynch today. We cannot afford to just sit around, discussing, anymore. As you guys say, we either have a vigilante or a serial killer, most likely Arya Stark made a mistake this night and took the life of one of our beloved. We already had a third party in the game, the survivor, and I doubt we’d have more than one, but who knows. I am going to put a summary list down below of my observations and thoughts:

@anashleyisme: Wanted to lynch with good cause, never wanted to call out random people as scum. Thought silence was a sign of guilt and quite strongly belived they on the other hand deserved to be lynched, wanted to put pressure on the quiet ones by threating with lynch votes. Was the one to mention that role claiming only benefit scum. Really is trying to find answers and help out. 
Final thought: strong town lean.

@mikymowse: Quickly disagreed with lynches of quiet members. Was on board with the random votes and definitely wanted role claims early on. Was called out for quickly changing mindset, answered by wanting an investigation, which would mean the cop would be revealed and therefore a big mafia target. Was yet again called out and came up with being new to the game.
Final thought: Can just be a newbie (which is totally fine), but scum lean for now.

@a-is-faking-it: First ignored the discussion about random votes. Later agreed that voting was necessary and that silence is suspicious. Asking questions about how we’re supposed to move forward. Afterwards says that lynching maybe isn’t the best idea.
Final thought: Rather hard to read. Could fall either way.

@aintnoparty7: Pretty quiet throughout the game. Have been thinking it’s hard to get a read on people. Thought the bickering could be useful info going forward. Asked for useful information from the night, is this luring or actual interest in helping town?
Final thought: Not much to go on. Slight town lean.

@black-stairs: Wasn’t fond of the idea to randomly vote, but thought accusations could work. Was the first one to share actual thoughts and reads about everyone. Called out mikymowse for the sudden change of mind. Also pointed out that role claiming might me risky. Wants to hear everyone’s thoughts and point of view. At this state considers role claiming as an option.
Final thought: Town lean. But could be skilled scum.

@ktwrites: Stated wanting to “find the right answers”, never really tried. Never wanted to cast a vote without being certain. Has been really quiet, doesn’t sit well with me. Says she wants to take action, but never does.
Final thought: Scum lean. Convince me otherwise.

@calizzy101: Thought random voting to scare people was a waste of time since it wouldn’t work. Also didn’t want a lynch on day one. Awfully quiet. Says she isn’t useful, but then I have a message for you and everyone else, every single one of us is useful to get to the bottom of this.
Final thought: Her silence has me suspicious, but I can’t say she’s scummy.

@ticktockbitches: Did not like the idea of random voting, at all. Said scum is the first ones to cast blame, but couldn’t point out any observations of who that might be. Almost got offended when I simply asked for her thoughts. Hm. Now feels like it’s time to take action.
Final thought: My summary might sound like I’m suspicous, but could really fall either way, I simply have no idea.

@honestlyelectronicdestiny: “All for random voting”, since it makes people talk, wasn’t ready to participate. Mostly silence when you listen in this direction, yet no one points it out.
Final thought: Scum lean for now. Would like to hear more from him.

@benzisario (me): Liked the idea of blind voting, wanted someone to take action in this matter, but never did myself. Quickly pointed out people’s actions without putting any value into it. Agreed with ticktockbitches about scum casting blame and further asked for more thoughts on it. 
No final thought. Just for you to not be left in the dark about me.

And for seven hells Arya, if you’re here, look closely before you pull your sword at someone. Might be your family for heaven’s sake.

truth in the waves;

distant planets slumber
in star-studded gardens,
their faces lit from
the waves down under.

within the negative
space remains a ticket
to that locked door
beyond the transitive. (what?)

they know.
in every enlightenment
comes the sight
of each ripple down below.

from beneath each quiver
It peeks, glowing eyes
in the atomic void,
and the body feels it in the feet, heart, jaw, liver.

hairs stand on end.
the heart races.
adrenaline responds to
what brains cannot comprehend.

reaching intangible hands
into the perceivable,
It pulls the tides of fate
and pours the time sands.

atoms beat with Its heart,
the waves shoaling at Its desire.
just beneath our sight, the waves swell.
will we ever discover more than Its art?
