Chasing my damage…

Just as you write my number down/ The walls abandon shape/ This place is on a mission/ Closed circuit cameras before you’re comatose

Chasing my damage
Because I was chased, thrilled and altered
And it raised me

Before you run away from me/ Before you’re lost between the notes/ Wish away nightmare

…because I was on my way

One Direction might have known that Zayn was leaving last year
Promotion for one Direction's new fragrance, Between Us, suggests the band knew Zayn Malik was leaving last year.
By Tricia Gilbride

One Direction announced their new fragrance today called Between Us, but there’s a more important story here. A closer look at the marketing campaign’s timeline suggests that the band kept a big secret for a while.

It seems that the band knew Zayn Malik intended to quit the band well before his departure was announced in March 2015. Between Us promises notes of gardenia petals for “delicate intrigue” and patchouli for “mystery and sensuality”, but what they call “a seductive blend,” some call betrayal.

The ad for Between Us is your standard One Direction mix of charming and goofy.

The band journeys to the arctic, scuba dives, travels through space to and goes to space for an apricot all to collect the finest ingredients for the perfume. Niall simply shows up with an onion and contributes a single tear to the fragrance.

There’s nothing scandalous here, it’s just adorable.

Based on hair lengths, it seems to have been shot relatively recently. But a behind the scenes video of the perfume’s promotional photo shoot proves that it took place in 2014.

The sides of Liam’s hair are not closely shaven as they are in recent pictures, which is a relatively minor piece of evidence. Hair can be shaved very quickly and grow back a centimeter in a short of amount of time.

It’s when we get to Harry Styles that 1D’s narrative of Zayn’s “sudden” departure starts to unravel. Styles’ ferocious mane has grown out significantly since the shoot and — the most damning evidence of all — he does not have the mermaid tattoo that he got in November 2014, meaning the photo shoot took place sometime before then.

Today, One Direction Instagrammed a promotional image for Between Us wearing the outfits from the shoot.

A YouTube user suggests that the Between Us pictures may have been taken at the same photo shoot as the promo shots for One Collection, One Direction’s collection of mini-bottles of their first three fragrances. That would mean that the shoots were conducted extremely strategically — filming group shots both with and without Zayn.

Clearly, the boys were well aware of Zayn’s expiration date long before the dramatic events that supposedly incited the split. What can we believe anymore? Was naming their latest album Four not a reference to its chronological order in their discography, but instead an omen of their future as a four-piece boy band?

One Direction was probably just trying to protect their fans, and themselves, but that doesn’t make willfully misconstruing the truth acceptable. Even if they are in love with all the little things about you, they will lie about the big things. And that’s not okay.

Cusps

A commonly misunderstood term. Many believe a cusp means being two signs or having influences of two different signs affecting the same planet. Which forces everyone to say, “No, cusps are not real”. But they are, just the commonly known definition is not. A cusp is merely the transition between two signs. (Note: cusps are generally only 2 degrees after or before 0 - meaning the cusp degrees are approx. 28.00 to 2.00, give or take a little). 

No one is two signs within the same planet but being born at an early degree or very late degree creates confusion and chaos. Being born at a late degree is often similar to feeling of “moving out of home” and being born at an early degree is similar to “moving into a new home”. Both create a feeling of being lost and nervous. All cusp signs have this in common. A constant searching for where they belong and who they truly are. 

Therefore, being a Cancer-Leo cusp doesn’t mean you have the emotions of a Cancer but the confidence of a Leo. It means your emotions are volatile and blocked because the transition from an emotional water sign to a self-absorbed fire sign causes turmoil in this area. 

It does not change your Sun sign. You are still your Sun sign. You Sun sign just isn’t the only part of your chart.

So excited to read all of them! Now just trying to find a place for them.

Today we are so excited to reveal the cover to Sharon Roat’s debut contemporary BETWEEN THE NOTES, coming June 2015 from HarperTeen!

When Ivy Emerson’s family loses their house—complete with her beloved piano—the fear of what’s to come seizes her like a bad case of stage fright. Only this isn’t one of her single, terrifying performances. It’s her life.

And it isn’t pretty.

Ivy is forced to move with her family out of their affluent neighborhood to Lakeside, also known as “the wrong side of the tracks.” Hiding the truth from her friends—and the cute new guy in school, who may have secrets of his own—seems like a good idea at first. But when a bad boy next door threatens to ruin everything, Ivy’s carefully crafted lies begin to unravel … and there is no way to stop them.

As things get to the breaking point, Ivy turns to her music, some unlikely new friends, and the trusting heart of her disabled little brother. She may be surprised that not everyone is who she thought they were … including herself.

Debut author Sharon Huss Roat crafts a charming and timely story of what happens when life as you know it flips completely upside down.

Rating: 3.5/5

This book smacks of poor-little-rich-girl, but in a way, at least for me, that didn’t grate on my nerves. Specifically because Ivy’s actions aren’t deliberately malicious – she’s just desperately trying to hang on to her place in the totem pole of hierarchy at her high school – stupid, yes, but understandable as well.

I know that at 17, I wasn’t that socially aware either, and high school was an utter bitch, so if I’d suddenly had to move to a dodgy area that everyone makes fun of, and be unable to participate in friends’ activities because I no longer had money, well, I’d probably be less than happy with the situation. Again, Ivy is the symptom of a society obsessed with class and cash-flow, not the cause.

Furthermore, Ivy’s despair at the situation stems from what the people at school will think, not necessarily the poverty itself – shallow yes, but a learning experience as well. So she does all sorts of things to try keep up the pretenses, which she finds out ultimately aren’t worth it.

I do think the book could have been longer. Ivy’s character development occurs in like the last 10% of the novel. Furthermore, I would have liked more insight into love interest #2, Lennie, the boy next door who is CLEARLY A BAD GUY BECAUSE HE HAS TATTOOS AND LOUD FRIENDS AND LIVES IN THE DODGE AREA. Pssssht. Kill that ‘ol stereotype already. The two popular girls who rule the school roost, meanwhile, are pretty much cardboard caricatures.

While there are two love interests per se, there isn’t a love triangle, because Ivy is pretty much oblivious to guy #2, and her relationship with guy #1 is based on a lot of assumptions.

The book also looks at issues of poverty –specifically, how poor is poor enough to justify social support, who really deserves it, and the shame/stigma attached to it.

All in all, while the book had its flaws, I really enjoyed it. While Ivy doesn’t react in the best possible way to her new circumstances, she wasn’t as shallow as she first appeared, and was struggling with a number of issues in addition to their economic status. Ivy makes some silly decisions, but without bitchy intent, as well as some admirable ones, which made up for her earlier mistakes.

ARC received from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

I loved seeing Fushimi with Anna! I hope this means he can still interact with Anna without being afraid of her as the Red King

I’m so glad they got that interaction in Countdown, it was so cute. I liked how Fushimi was irritated as usual but also seemed pretty worried on her behalf, like the first thing he does is drag her out like he’s worried she’s going to get in trouble and then the two of them have a pretty nice talk. Fushimi obviously seems to be better at dealing with her than with Mikoto (meaning it really was Mikoto that made it hard for Fushimi to breathe, not the power itself) and I think she’s trying to help him a little here too, like when she tells Fushimi that a clansman can become a King’s support.

Also the whole “Misaki is fine” is hilarious. You are literally fooling no one at this point, Saru.
