The man’s voice spoke again: “Are you very tired?”

“Oh, tonight I gave you my soul and I am dead!” Christine replied.

“Your soul is a beautiful thing, child,” replied the grave man’s voice, “and I thank you. No emperor ever received so fair a gift.”

If you weren’t mine, you know you’d always fuckin’ wanna be. You’d die wishing I was still worshipping at your throne on the daily because nobody’s exaltation satisfies your ego like mine.

You know I adore every inch of you, just like you know that I know I’ll never wanna peruse another soul or shell so completely, so I better not fuck this whole til’ death do us part thing up.

Muse, label my assiduous behavior as you will but please do understand…I just wanna know you as I would had I fashioned you myself, if for no other reason than the compulsion to love you in excellence.

speaktruthful  asked:

Hi there :), thanks for the answer! And if I may ask another thing? I think it was when we "met" on SandorsSirens that you mentioned that you took the butterfly because of that funny scene in the Simpsons, but also for other reasons. Would you tell me why? Since you are Mindset in other communities?

Well, let me first explain why I’m Mindset. :) I was on the internet starting in ‘92, but my usernames were just based on my real name (which was how colleges did it then). Then in '96, I was on Usenet (rec.arts.comics.marvel.xbooks), and a friend there started a semi-role play thing for a joke, “The Brotherhood of Slightly Peeved Mutants”, and I decided why the hell not and joined. She asked us all what our silly powers were, and I said mine were “to get into the mindset of fictional characters and be totally engulfed by their personality and pain” (yes, I was a tumblr-style fangirl with FEELS even then), and she replied, “I dub thee Mindset!”

I was rather enchanted by the name, and at first opportunity, I began using it as an email address and on forums and blogs and such. (It’s also the codename my self-insert doesn’t use, because she has a moral objection to codenames, but anyway.) And ~15 years on, I’m still using Mindset as a username… and I would be using it on tumblr, except, well, it was taken long before I got here. And my alt. name, Left of Center, was also taken, so what could I do? Use the name of my Rock Band band, I guess…

But why was that my band name? And why does nobody suspect the butterfly? And why butterflies? Well, I’ve always had a thing for them. It dates back to when I was about 8 years old, helping my dad rake the lawn on a crisp fall afternoon, when a monarch butterfly landed in the middle of my forehead. Honest to god. (It’s why, even though I have really nothing in common whatsoever with the comics character Lord Fanny, the fact that her origin story involved a butterfly landing on her forehead made me identify immediately with her, and I frequently use a picture of her as an icon.) Anyway, we figured the butterfly was migrating and had clung to me for warmth, and so we kept it for a few days (in a plastic bottle with holes, with sugar water and grass and stuff) until it got warm again and I let it go. Formative childhood memory there.

Since then, I’ve just… liked butterflies. I love all kinds, I love going to butterfly museums and habitats, I’ve had butterfly jewelry and keychains and charms and clothes. I often love characters associated with butterflies. (TV!Sansa is associated with dragonflies, which is… close enough.) If I could summon a patronus, it would definitely be a butterfly. ;) And they suit me, with my fluttering from subject to subject multitasking and such… and I love the idea of metamorphosis, becoming far more than you were… and, well, I just like them.

Now, the Simpsons thing… I think it was my bf who first associated that with me. IIRC at some point I told him about my thing for butterflies, and he said that makes sense, because nobody ever suspects the butterfly. (See, I’m secretly evil, but nobody can tell because I look so innocent and sweet and unassuming.) His tag for me over on his LJ is “nobody ever suspects the butterfly”; and looking it over, a common theme is him posting about some ridiculous link or story I found, but it’s not his fault for learning about it, it was the butterfly, I tell you! The butterfly! Mwhahahaha.

So, there you go. Hope that helps. :)

calonari replied to your post:

you have a certain power over people corseque, just like in got fandom.

I really hadn’t intended to affect anyone else; I’ve tried to be perfect at tagging everything so that anyone could opt out of OUAT if they wanted using Tumblr Savior. But I guess a lot of people don’t use Tumblr Savior, or they’re super patient with strange fandoms on their dash. Or they ran off long ago.

I like to think that the interest for another fantasy show would overlap for a lot of people. (I don’t expect everyone to enjoy my rapidly devolving Carlyle fascination, that is purely because I cannot help but angrily reblog.)

haahahaha, make that 22 people … :D

You are a sweet darling. My actual reaction to reading this:

Hiii Grackle, just meant to say ... I've opened these two pieces of music/thunderstorm that you posted. Have been listening to them for ... oh. About two hours now? Usually I don't like background music so much, but this one is great. I didn't even know this "ListenOnRepeat" page! So, thank you for sharing :* I hope this day finds you well?

Oh, you’re welcome! I’m having a lovely day, thank you for asking. My fiance and I spent his day off together, mostly running errands, but then he took me to my favorite Thai restaurant and I am stuffed. 

I’m so glad you enjoyed that post. I really love that artist, Olafur Arnalds. He has some incredible piano and strings music… very ambient. A lot of it is perfect for writing parts of Kindred. Actually, someone who read my most recent chapter reviewed it and said that they listened to those videos together the whole time they read it, so I just thought that was awesome. I’m always listening to something with the same feel as the scene I’m writing, and I often wish it could be read the same way, with the music.

There is another site that will repeat Youtube videos for you, and I actually think it’s much better because you can choose parts of the video to repeat, and you can make animated gifs from videos. It’s called YouRepeat. I’ve been using it lots.

speaktruthful  asked:

Haha, and I've just discovered that you like Terry Pratchett, too :))). I liked Good Omens a lot, it was a good and very funny mix of the two authors, but I've read all the Discworld, too (and own most of the books). I think the witches are my favorite - there is something about Granny Weatherwax ... And Death, of course!! Which ones of the Discworld novels or characters did you like best?

Um, all of them. :)  I honestly can’t decide if I prefer the Death stories or the witches stories or the Watch stories. And I like the Rincewind stories too (albeit mostly for sentimental reasons since I started with The Light Fantastic) — which is why, I suppose, I love The Last Hero a whole lot. And I like the solo stories also, they include some of my favorites.

So, favorite books: Mort, Reaper Man, Small Gods, Lords and Ladies, Men at Arms, Thief of Time, Night Watch, The Last Hero, Interesting Times — but really, that’s just to start. Every time I read a book I remember why I like it, and I have favorite quotes in just about every book.

Character favorites: Death, Mort, Susan, Vetinari, Vimes, Lady Sybil, Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, Archchancellor Ridcully, Carrot, Angua, Brutha, Lu-Tze the Sweeper, Pretty Butterfly, Leonard of Quirm, Esk (oh my god when she appeared in I Shall Wear Midnight I nearly cried), William de Worde, Moist, Adora Belle, Gaspode, and, well, it kind of keeps going.

It’s kind of a mistake to ask me what my favorite anything is, really. ;)

speaktruthful  asked:

Okay, this might pose kind of a challenge, because I don't know whether you remember all the characters well enough (or whether I do ;)), but: Beauty and the beast, the series with Ron Perlman and Linda Hamilton! :D

Oh, I absolutely remember them well enough! Here goes nothing …

1. bake cupcakes for: Samantha
2. trust with the keys to my car: Father
3. put thumbtacks on the chair thereof: Winslow

5. pack up and leave if they moved next door: Paracelsus
6. vote for President: Elliott Burch
