Took England out and about with me today to get some pictures in better light. :) I found this weird moss-and-apple… thing on the windowsill of one of the old derelict buildings on the street where I work, haha. Perfect for a photo! …I’m sure people walking past me on the street wondered what the hell I was doing, though. (…I hope they didn’t think I’m the one who left my gross bitten apple there!)

The history is all wrong.

There was no apple bitten, no snake tempting, no man blaming
It was just us – the wild children of Eden

All honeyed skinned, and golden tongued
All fault-line glances, all suffocating rectitude.

I had a dream we were robbing constellations,
Turning harps rotten until it shook
God in to a hunger strike.

It was looking through another soul
Seeing all dark sides, the hidden
Atrophy, seeing the dynamite in his mouth
and never faltering in crashing lips.

I see us as how we had been, or
How we could be.

How wounding. How disdainfully us.

Your rib, my poniard
My heart, your fruit.

Loving you was the first religion
Loving you was the first offering.

Today we are half sick celestials.
the myth of a memory
Eons ago we were but humans caught
In the war between God and Satan.

The scriptures got it all wrong,
We were as much as the world’s undoing
As we were its casualties.

Someday we will be more than rumor fed shadows.

Tomione AU: Lucifer and Eve

Little innocent Hermione, who had bitten the apple. Who was tired of always helping and fixing everything, and no one returning the favors. Who seemed to exist for the use of others. She had craved knowledge, and control and power. So when Riddle offered her the world- and an apple, she didn’t hesitate to take it.

There is only one spot in New York that rivals Wollman and Rockefeller during these cold, dark months, where the snow falls even underground, where there is a chill across the rails, where winter’s deviants have come to play. The Winter Circus. February at Cirque Empire, where the blood runs cold but the cheeks stay warm. Fans blow luminescent snowflakes across guests as they shed their fur coats and down jackets, candy canes drip with liquor onto the tongue, enchanting ballroom music humming as frosted and glazed apples are bitten into, swords adorned with frost as if Arthur had just pulled them from some icy mountain, even the flames going blue to give the illusion that fire can catch frostbite. The stages are rinks, the curtains are lace, and white lights drown the darkness in a sinister, magical glow, softening the sight of even the cruelest of voyeurs.

So come, one would hope that news of Fellows’ folly doesn’t have you too cold. There is a blizzard raging in our hearts, and here before the fire, we promise to keep you warm.

Hello circus darlings! You may now resume activity on the dash, posting starters and beginning new threads. As the timeline stands, we are still post-Prohibition Party, and your characters may still respond to the plot drop that happened within it. We are at the tail-end of the Winter Circus, described above.

I’m hoping to have all tags and pages updated by tonight. And remember, we will be accepting new members and commencing the Showcase event next week!

Never Judge

A girl was holding two apples with both hands.

One of her friends came in and softly asked her with a smile; “My dear friend, could you share with me one of your two apples?”

The girl looked at her friend for a few seconds, and she suddenly took a quick bite from one apple, and then quickly bit the other apple.

The friend felt the smile on her face freeze. She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.

Then the girl handed one of the bitten apples to her friend and said: “My dear friend, here you are. This is the sweeter one.”

No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you think you are, always delay judgement. In fact, you should never judge others at all.

Give others the privilege to explain themselves.   
                           
What you see may not be the reality. Never conclude for others.

Which is why we should never only focus on the surface and judge others without understanding them first.

Those people who like to pay our bills or give us gifts, do so not because they are loaded with money. Perhaps they’re not even rich or wealthy. But they do it because they value their love for you more than money.

Those who take an initiative at work, do so not because they are stupid, but because they understand the concept of responsibility.

Those who apologize first after a fight, do so not because they are wrong, but because they value the people around them.

Those who are willing to help you, do so not because they owe you any thing, but because they see you as a true friend.

Those who often text you and message you, do so not because they have nothing better to do or because they are bored, but they do it because you are in their heart.

Those who take out time to chat with you, does not mean they are jobless or less busy, but they know the importance of keeping in touch.

One day, all of us will get separated  from each other; we will miss our conversations of everything & nothing; the dreams that we had and the people we wished to be with forever.

Days will pass by, months, years and centuries until this contact becomes rare… One day our children will see the pictures or gifts given by those who loved us and ask, ‘Who are these people?’ or 'From where did you get this?’, and we will smile with tears because your heart will be touched by the strong words and you will say: 'IT WAS THEM THAT I HAD THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE WITH’.

Share this with all your friends and loved ones.

He smelled dark like honeysuckle. There was a sweetness left on the tongue after kisses, bruises felt only in heart and not in flesh. Like termite-eaten wood that you only know is weak once it breaks under your weight. Castiel felt the sawdust remnants of himself slipping between his fingers. Every brush of hands and lips made him ache. 

He felt himself losing the shields he’d held up to protect himself, the barriers crumbling to pieces. Like a child rubbing the scales off of butterfly wings, not realizing they’re dooming the creature to death for what they see as dust; that was how Dean loved. 

There was no sweet cure lingering in wildflowers blown by the wind, no drops of sunshine, no benevolent witch or spirit to impart last-minute wisdom that would flush the sin of bitten apple from Castiel’s system. He could walk on swords or turn to sea foam. The prince he fell in love with indeed loved him back. He hadn’t picked another person, but had instead picked all other people. Warriors never fell in love with anything more than battle. A hero’s love always ended in a pyre. 

Castiel scraped up the last remnant of the star he used to be, held the plasma in his hands and watched as the fission split the last atoms and all the fuel was exhausted. If he could not be a star any longer then he would fold in on himself, he would turn what he was into something greater. He would be a black hole always chasing Dean at the edge of his own event horizon.

WINGS short film #2 LIE theory

In my opinion the main idea of this short film was pretty clear and the title says it all. IT’S ABOUT LIVING A LIE. It is definitely the continuation on Demian theme.

Namjoon narrates in the beginning: 

My parents’ house made up one realm. This realm was familiar to me in almost every way – mother and father, love and strictness, model behavior, and school.

It describes the expectations they are having from their family and society, to be the perfect child, perfect student. But that is not what everyone wants. In the beginning Jimin is shown a picture of the first short film’s logo which symbolises his true self, his passion. And you can see him smiling and dancing. But after he’s shown the second logo, the bitten apple, his expression darkens and he tries choking himself and is put into a hospital. The apple symbolises what is expected of him, his reality. The road sign shown means ‘wildflower arboretum’ where he is basically put and living, for others to see but not for himself. Which also can be the painting of a forest/trees shown in the beginning and the end.

The gunshot can be heard and his inner self is dead. He drops the apple in water but drowns himself instead. The lines from ‘Run’ and ‘Save me’ both note how trapped and dead he feels inside. And he is shown in the painting/arboretum. Finally he gives in and bites into an apple (obviously with a pure look of disgust and despair) and continues on living the lie. 

Note: there were obviously much more things to notice. But this is the main idea I’ve got. And I personally enjoyed this film much more than yesterday’s and think that even as a stand alone short film it’s a pretty good one.

THE PROFESSIONAL: WENDY ROWE

Burberry Make-up’s Artistic Consultant shares her quintessential makeup tips.

What comes down the Burberry Prorsum runway is much more than divine trench coats. From metallic soot-grey smoky eyes to creamy apple-bitten red lips, the beauty looks aren’t afraid to steal the show. The woman you’ll find backstage is none other than international makeup artist and Burberry Make-up’s Artistic Consultant, Wendy Rowe. Now that the fashion house’s makeup collection has traveled across the pond and is available at Sephora, we wanted to better acquaint ourselves with the artist responsible for the looks donned by our favorite It Girl models. The London-born Rowe has also worked closely with Burberry Creative Director Christopher Bailey to develop the line, so be sure to take close notes on which of the products she personally wears every day. The Sephora Glossy conversed with Rowe on her classic Burberry look, what celebs request the most, and which Burberry beauty products you’ll fancy to add to your bag.

JESSICA VELEZ

Tell us about your first beauty memory.

When I was in the third year at school I did a fashion project, I was about 10. I cut and pasted images from magazines using my Mum’s dressmaking scissors and wrote about fashion styles—I was obsessed!

How did you come to be a makeup artist?

I studied graphics and found it wasn’t creative enough, so I went back to college and studied to be a makeup artist, but I didn’t know what that entailed until I started working—and here I am 20 years later!

You’ve worked with many famous clients. What are top requests or concerns you hear? How do you use Burberry make-up to help?

Everyone is concerned with how to get better skin, with or without makeup. I always recommend feeding the skin from within and obviously looking after your skin. Burberry products are great for this because they are lightweight and breathable and also protect, plus they give an effortless, flawless finish.

What does the Burberry make-up brand mean to you?

It means effortless makeup that allows anyone, not only experts, to achieve a flawless finish with modern makeup.

Can you tell us what you love about the Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base—and your favorite way to apply it?

I think it gives any skin color a natural, healthy glow, and I love applying it like a moisturizer over the face and neck.

What are your most life-changing makeup tips and tricks—and how do you incorporate them with Burberry make-up?

The most life-changing element for me has been the ability to produce makeup that is weightless, yet provides coverage. You can still feel your skin under it. In terms of a groundbreaking product, it will have to be Burberry Face Contour – Effortless Contouring Pen Face & Eyes. We have really been able to achieve the ultimate product to sculpt and enhance the shape of the face effortlessly.

Tell us about the Burberry make-up products you’re the most obsessed with.

Burberry Face Contour – Effortless Contouring Pen Face & Eyes and Burberry Fresh Glow B.B. Cream Broad Spectrum 20 are must-haves I use on myself every day.

What is your signature or your favorite look to create?

The hero look I’ve created for Burberry is soft almond eyes with glowing skin and contoured face. Anyone can wear that.

What’s the #1 thing you think people do incorrectly when it comes to beauty?

Wearing too much foundation or a foundation that is the wrong type for their skin—this instantly ages you.

We’re excited about the Cashmere foundation, Lip Velvet Lipstick, and Face Contour. Can you explain to us what’s so amazing about these three new products?

Burberry Cashmere is amazing for oily skin. Darker skintones profit from this massively. Burberry Lip Velvet Lipstick is great for a red lip. I love this because it reminds me of a deep red rose and is so classic. Burberry Face Contour – Effortless Contouring Pen Face & Eyes is mistake-proof. It creates natural shadows, has no hard lines, and can be used to change the shape of the face, enhance your jawline, or give the illusion of bigger eyes.
