call of the haunted

anonymous asked:

hi! i just recently started following and i was wondering if u had any headcanons about lefou during the war???

Do I ever– I just have to sort them out. Here’s a small taste of what I’ve got in mind–

LeFou had a tactical mind– he served alongside Gaston and even made some daring plays– giving credit to Gaston. When Gaston rose through the ranks he made sure his best friend was at his side.

Soon after being promoted to Captain, Jacques was made his Lieutenant for his knowledge and ability to command troops. It’s where he obtained his horse– Armand– who is an Irish Cob, a breed not too common in France.

During the war he had to harden himself. He hated the idea of taking lives but it was either an enemy combatant or him. He and Gaston promised one another they’d see the war to the end. Not to say there weren’t close calls.

The sound of cannon fire has haunted him since the war. He shies away from loud noises and keeps his distance when Gaston hunts or fires his musket [as we see him move away quickly during the Gaston song– not just from the falling debris, I’d bet].

Upon returning to Villeneuve, he was hailed alongside Gaston as a hero. He let Gaston take the limelight because he didn’t like thinking about the war. Like Gaston, he suffers from PTSD. Unfortunately the disorder won’t be known to psychology for centuries. He’s prone to occasional nightmares and sleeps very little. Thus he has those little bags under his eyes [adapting that from his animated incarnation].

He’s a pacifist– promising himself he’d never take another man’s life again. However he can handle himself in a fight. He just prefers not to. He fears if he lets himself dabble in violence like Gaston does– he’ll lose what part of himself survived the war.

The Athens Lunatic Asylum was a mental hospital located in Athens, Ohio, from 1874 to 1993. It’s commonly known for it’s prevalence of the lobotomy as well as the number of legends that say it is haunted.

In December of 1979, a patient called Margaret Schilling disappeared from the mental hospital. It wasn’t until 42 days later, when workers discovered her decomposed remains in one of the abandoned wards, that what became of her was uncovered. Sitting beside her was a pile of her neatly folded clothes.

To this very day, the stain caused by the purge fluid leaking from her body remains on the floor. No matter how hard workers tried, the stains could not be removed. While many believed this to be a rumour, a team of forensic experts concluded that the stain was in fact, caused by human purge fluid.

Limpkin (Aramus guarauna

One of my favorite birds, the limpkin! (A close second to caracaras).

Limpkins are also called crying birds from their haunting cry that echoes through the swamps. There is an South American folktale about a man who never made time to grieve for his deceased mother and was eventually so overcome with grief that he turned into a limpkin and that is why the bird cries.

Limpkins almost vanished from Florida due to habitat loss and their main food, the Florida apple snail, disappearing. Limpkins were saved by an unlikely species, an invasive apple snail from South America. This new food source brought back Limpkin (and Snail Kite) populations that were once so close to disappearing from Florida forever.

This beautiful Swedish lady sings an ancient Viking song. Now watch how the cows respond. 

It is often argued that everything our ancestors did and said gets stored into our brains. Their experience and knowledge gets passed down from generation to generation. This may explain why we know or react to certain things without having any prior knowledge.

Kulning is an ancient herding call used in the Scandinavian region. The call is a high pitch tone that can reach long distances. The herding call sounds more like a haunting and sad melody meant to echo through mountains and alleys.

It was getting late and foggy on a magical night last month when Swedish artist Jonna Jinton wanted to try kulning. She wanted to find out if the animals would answer to the call their own ancestors heard when the women called them. Kulning might just be one of the most beautiful and enchanting sounds ever made.

The Chijon Cannibals -  Founded in 1993, The Chijon Family had a deep-seeded hatred of the rich - so much so that they slaughtered and cannibalised them. Consisting of eight people, including a young woman, the gang targeted people who appeared to be wealthy. Whether they were wearing expensive clothes or driving fancy cars, they became fair game to the Chijon Family, who called Seoul, Korea, their haunt. 

After kidnapping their target, they would demand a ransom in return for their safe return. However, the victims were never released. Once they received the ransom and were bored of torturing their chosen victim, they would then slaughter them. Disturbingly, they often cooked and ate the flesh of their victims, believing that it would give them courage. On one occasion, they managed to extort $100,000 from a terrified family member before dispatching of their loved one. Their preferred stomping ground was an exclusive department store, where they would zone in on the flashiest looking customers. At least until they managed to get their hands on the mailing list for a Hyundai garage. This list contained names of their very best, and very richest, customers - their perfect target.

They were finally apprehended in September of 1994, when a woman they had abducted miraculously managed to escape, but not before experiencing the absolute unimaginable. She had been brutally gang raped before being forced to shoot another abductee in the head. In addition to this traumatic experience, she was then forced to hold the head of her friend as she was suffocated by a gang member with a plastic bag. After showing no remorse other than that they had wished they had killed more, they were charged with five murders. They had burnt the majority of their victims in an incinerator at their cabin.

On 31 October, 1994, the six men associated with the gang were sentenced to death while the young woman received a three year suspended sentence. The death sentence was carried out in November of 1995.

Hunting ghosts in an affliction tee shirt (so he can show off his biceps) and a respirator (because he’s been doing this for ten years and physically cannot breathe in any more asbestos): ‘These raindrops fall around me, and I can’t help but think that these are the tears of the orphans that lost their lives so violently here, at this haunted orphanage’

Mexican-American creates storytelling platform for LGBTQ Latinos
Mexican-American Alberto Mendoza created an online platform, Honor41, to help LGBTQ Latinos share their stories.

Giving a speech as the student-body vice president, Alberto Mendoza’s ears rang with the chanting of his bullies.

“41! 41! 41″ they cried.

Then, “41″ was a homophobic slur.

Now, it is the name of his project, the number reclaimed as the voice of the LGBTQ Latino community. The online storytelling platform is called Honor41.

Haunted by his memories of the number used to torment him, Mendoza says, “It just kind of kept coming at me in numbers. The time would be 41, and the change would be 41 cents. It seemed like every credit card or every ATM card had the 41 digits.“

On Honor41, forty-one narratives are accessible from LGBTQ Latinos of varying ages and nationalities, sharing their experiences first-hand to help others in the community understand that, though they may not be a particularly visible mainstream community, none in the community are alone. 

Thus, 41 designates, not a particular person decried with slander, but the number of people whose voices have come together for this project, ringing a complex and lasting harmony.

Every time before, when I would see 41 I would just cringe,“ says Mendoza. ”And now it just makes me smile.“
