accident & creation

Sin makes us less human, not more. We’re not talking about accidental mistakes; we’re talking about wilful insurgency. We were made in the image of God, to reflect his glory, yet when we reject and run from God, we scratch markers across the surface of our lives that efface this reflection. We dehumanize ourselves and diminish the glory of life we were given.

Hello! I stumbled upon your blog on accident but your creations are so lovely! I just remade my town. Mayor Lotus of Schwifty(Rick and Morty reference). Think you could come up with something for me to use as my town flag if it's not too much trouble? Thank you!

Thank you so much! Rick and Morty is an awesome show

Fractured Fairytale

@madasakuweek

They were of a poor people, but when Sakura stood in the clearing at the center of the ring of stone megaliths she was dressed in more finery than she had ever seen in her life. Her beauty had cost her this; the last spring born virgin was a thing no mother wanted for their daughters to be. At her ankles on the stone alter a white lamb bled out, staining her naked toes red. Soon that too would be her fate. They had tied a cord of woven gold to her ankle and knotted it to the hind leg of the slaughtered lamb.

‘We are a pair of scapegoats,’ she thought, shutting her eyes and trying to breath without taking in the forest’s air. It was different from anything she had breathed before, and she knew why. This was the world of the thing the old gods scorned. This was something the children called the forbidden forest and the adults called it The Maw.

In her mind’s eye, she replayed the memories that refused to be ignored any longer. Scenes and flashes of conversation screamed inside her mind, demanding attention. One was more overpowering than the others and laid claim to her attention.

‘They think you are going to die this spring, this is why they mourn,’ Baba said. “Being fed to a monster, they think.”

Outside on the shortest day of the year, the last solstice before the Spring Equinox, a community dressed in black and made sure every door in town was adorned with holly and mistletoe. Sakura couldn’t remember when the tradition had been joyful instead of solemn, even though feasting and games were also part of the tradition.  

“I’m not going to die though, am I?” Sakura asked, already knowing she was different. All the other spring born girls who had been sacrificed had lived their life as they pleased as long as they remained maidens for the Bone Husk King to feast on come the Spring Equinox. Sakura, however, had been spirited away to live in isolation, tutored separately and raised with great care by a small army of nursemaids and elder women.  

“Not if you’re smart about it. You’ve got a better chance than the others.” Baba looked down thoughtful at the pipe she held in one hand and the dried grasses she clutched in the other. A moment later she shook the thought free and stuffed her pipe. “You’re going to marry him instead.”

UT: Next Game Possibilities

A Preface

A lot of people are going to see this and immediately raise the question: ‘Do we really know there will be another game?’ Or simply say ‘there will not be another game.’ 

These people are speaking from a place of ignorance and stubbornness in the face of overwhelming evidence. 

The next game, details of which remain ‘Shrouded In Darkness’ has been confirmed for half a decade. 

I’ll say again: The next game has been confirmed for half a decade.

It’s coming. That is not what this post is about.

Here’s the way this post is going to work: I’m going to go over possible options for the next game. Settings, maybe characters, plot details possibly. I’ll lay everything I can think of out for a potential next game, and then comment on how likely that is, or how likely it’s not. This is not going to be a complete set of possible predictions, obviously, because while I try to control for it, I am biased. But I hope that it’s a pretty good layout.

Let’s get started …

There’s a lot of guys out there that really mistreat girls. And there’s a lot of girls out there that really mistreat guys. And a lot of times when we go through something like that, in a realtionship, we wake up and feel like we don’t deserve anything better, there’s nothing better out there, and that’s all that we have. I‘m talking about boyfriend-and-girlfriend relationships where we thought that that was going to be the greatest thing in the world, and it ended up hurting us somehow. We thought that that was all there was, that you’re not gonna get anything better, that there’s nothing better for you, because that’s pretty much what you’re worth. But the problem is that there’s so many beautiful women and guys out there! And you have no idea of what you’re worth! That you’re not an accident, that you’re not some kind of a burden. You are a beloved creation of the God of the heavens, that created you just like you are. When you look in the mirror and you don’t like what you see, you need to remember that the God who remade this sunset right here, He formed you in your mother’s womb, every part of who you are. And there’s nothing to be ashamed of, there’s nothing to look at and say, “It’s not beautiful.” You can’t look at some airbrushed picture of someone who doesn’t even look like that in real life and compare yourself to that. That’s not the reality of life. But what you are, is perfectly made by God of the heavens and He meant it on purpose.

(Here goes) Willton Omega was walking down the creepy hallways of Monster High, knowing his sister Wicka, she was helping Clawdeen in Fashion Creation. He accidently bumped into mechanic girl flying down the halls. "Oh my bad, I wasn't watching where I was going, are you okay?"

A soft whirring sound as Robecca climbed back to her copper feet, the gears in her eyes spinning strangely in her dizziness. “Oh, no, that was entirely my fault, I’m sure. I’m always forgetting to look where I’m going, I’m afraid.”

Shaking her head a bit to clear it, the robotic girl turned to the boy witch that had run into her. “Are you sure you’re alright? You didn’t get bruised on my exterior or anything, did you?”
