a real live ghost

ABCs of Me

I was tagged by @ladyrevealedofcloak :-D (Sorry it took forever)

A - Age: Thirty

B - Biggest fear: Becoming my parents.

C - Current time: 0850 1909

D - Drink you last had: Coffee. I prefer tea over coffee but I drink a lot of coffee at work, especially now that I’ve tried Death Wish.

E - Every day starts with: Telling myself that I’ll go to bed earlier next time (I won’t).

F - Favorite song: Sometimes I go through times where there’s this one song that I am obsessed with and listen to 30 times in a week. I’m not currently in one of those stretches. But the last time I was it was Red Right Hand by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

G - Ghosts, are they real?: They’re living among us, spreading the ungospel through rock music! 

- But also I (to some extent) and people I know personally, have had weird shit happen that seems like ghosts. What ghosts are is another matter. I’m of the opinion that most are like… when through long repetition you wear through the elbow of a shirt or the knee of your pants, or like those footprints in the wood that were created by a monk standing in the same spot every day for decades. Just a worn through spot in space-time, an impression left by a person on reality maybe.)

H - Hometown: Albany, NY

I - In love with: the idea of, but very rarely the reality.

J - Jealous of: people with clear goals and a drive to accomplish things?

K - Killed someone: not… that I know of. Isn’t it odd to think through some sort of butterfly effect you’re responsible for someone’s death?

L - Last time you cried: I turned on the tv and happened to catch the Eagles of Death Metal documentary about them/the Paris attack and … yeah… people crying makes me cry.

M - Middle name: ♫YOOoou’re stiiiiill aliiiiive ElIIIIZABETHHHH♫

N - Number of siblings: ∅

P - Person you last called/texted: My dad keeps bugging me. Besides him I last texted @azimel

Q - Questions you’re always asked: “How are you? \ How are you doing?” Usually this is at work on the phone, by someone I don’t know. It’s one of my pet peeves because they don’t want to know how I am, they’re just using it as a verbal placeholder.

R - Reasons to smile: Music. Cats. Days off.

S - Song last sang: Mask of Sanity by Children of Bodom. ‘sang’ being a loose term.

T - Time you woke up: 0630. Had to go in to work early.

U - Underwear color: black

V - Vacation destination: Egypt. Sweden. Japan. More realistcally, I’m going to Boston soon for Carpenter Brut. :-D

W - Worst Habit: Complaining and procrastinating are tied.

X - X-rays you’ve had: Normal mouth ones for the dentist. Mammograms because boobs are dumb lumps of flesh that a series of punishments the body inflicts on you for being female.

Y - Your favorite food: Empanadas. You can put anything in there! And then eat it with your hands.

Z - Zodiac sign: Gemini / Cancer cusp

Tagging anyone who would like to do this:

I tried to pay attention to who’s done this but then I got lazy. Sorry if you’ve already done -  @remediesrebellion @spoonriverrat @gingersnarls @spice-ghoul @caligurl32 @ghulehtela @misslavender @stranger-ghoul

Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.
—  Stephen King

Headcanon that Vlad doesn’t actually believe that the Dairy King is a real ghost and has no idea that he’s living in his castle.

The Dairy King leaves cheese for Vlad in various places whenever he’s in a bad mood to try to cheer the poor guy up but all it does it seriously baffle Vlad. But the Dairy King kinda wins bc Vlad’s too busy thinking about randomly appearing cheese to think on his problems and Vlad does get a little amusement out of it.

The Dairy King quietly taken care of the things that Vlad forgets to do or can’t if he’s injured like switching the laundry, closing the curtains, getting him a glass of water, cleaning up the first aid materials, closing the ghost portal. small things that Vlad always overlooks because he assumes he did it.

The Dairy King being fond of Vlad like a kind of grandson and being incredibly disappointed as he watches Vlad’s life spiral more and more out of control, and being helpless to do anything about it.

The Dairy king trying to sabotage Vlad’s plans by hiding tools and materials from him to prolong how long it takes him to set things in motion.

The Dairy King “accidentally” pushing books off the shelves when Vlads not in the room. its always the same book: the 1981 college yearbook. Vlad hates it. He’s tried move and even hiding the damn book but the Dairy King always knows. and he’ll always toss it onto the floor, open to a picture he knows it hurts Vlad to see. Vlad wants to erase those smiles from his mind. The dairy King wants to show him “Things don’t have to be the way they are now, you can bring this back.”

The Dairy King loosing his hold on the physical world after the first mansion blows up, but he tries his hardest to stay manifested because he doesn’t want to leave Vlad alone. Vlad’s had enough of that already. But he can’t hold on forever, and he knows this.

The Dairy King, when he’s nearly out of power, appearing to Vlad for the first time.

And he just asks, “Why are you doing this to yourself?”

And Vlad doesn’t understand what he means and the King can’t explain before he fades away. Vlad continues with his plans. The absence of all that has become familiar over the years is noticeable. Vlad ignores it. But every once and a while, when he drags himself back into his master bedroom, bones broken and bleeding pink, or after another failed venture to get what he wants, he’ll just slump down.

And wonder, “Why do I do this to myself?”

Because he cant get the infernal question out of his mind, and he can’t answer it.

OUT.  the fact that henry refers to himself as   the ghost    throughout the majority of ac:u is almost funny until you realize it’s because he literally has no other identity  :’)
