when it was late at night
and all the roads were empty
you walked down the centre of the street
jumping from end to end of the
white painted stripes
as though they were planks of wood
in a stream
and I tread the pavements
five feet to the side
wishing I could kill your misadventure
and drag you back to my side
fearing the wayward headlights
you were a rabbit chancing fate
those bulbs in the pitch black
were the eyes of the predator
that we never saw
you’d walked this way with me
a hundred times and survived it
but I still got scared
clinging to the safety of the raised road edges
you refused to abide by
just like you ran across rail tracks
and leapt from high walls and trees and
climbed the crumbling stairs
of the abandoned college building
all the time I stood outside
on the pavement
for your fall
for your yell
how was I to know then
that when you fell it would be
in the quiet of your own bedroom
I’d never walk the pavements again
Down the Voltage Rabbit Hole is an ongoing story about our MC, who could easily be anyone in voltage fandom. She woke up in hospital bed only to discover that she’d somehow been transported Voltage universe.

Part 33 - Second Chances
I didn’t get much sleep and when Jin’s alarm went off at 5:30 AM I felt like I wanted to die.
He’d given me fair warning the night before that he was an early riser, and knowing he liked to get a workout in before heading to the academy I should have realized exactly how early “early” had meant.
Just browsing and read you've never watched the old musicals. Pls Pls watch the old sera myus when you get the chance to go down that rabbit hole. If you can get past the bad wigs they're actually really good and funny and amazing. I would A+ recommend youtubing any given show, although I would recommend starting with First Stage (Anza Ooyama's run). All stuff I'm sure you've heard before but wow I need to spread the gospel on Hikari Ono whenever I can.
Thank you for dropping by and taking the time to promote the myus! :D
I have actually tried to watch the old myus two years back when I was bored out of my mind during summer break. It unfortunately just wasn’t for me - not because of the costume or wig, I’m actually pretty good at overlooking cheese and awkward costumes - I mean, I got through the initial shock of pgsm after all! :P
What I couldn’t get past was the difference in music style - that it was quite obvious to me there’s a generation difference. The audio quality and music felt like something from my dad’s old collection of japanese music. xD Given the music is 50% of the MUSICal, I just couldn’t sit through it, unfortunately.
Maybe one day if I’m feeling adventurous, I may give the old myus another go, but right now, it seems very unlikely. If someone has some tips on easing in or adjusting to the music style, feel free to let me know, but otherwise, no matter what other amazing stuff people tell me is in the old myu (and I’m sure they are right!), they are out of my reach to enjoy.
The club isn’t the best place to start a fight so Westeros is where I go
Me and my friends at the fire singing songs, drinking wine and then we talk slow
You come over and start up a conversation with just us and trust me I’ll give it a chance now
Eat our rabbit , stop, drink the wine from the wineskin and then we start to talk
And I’m singing like-
Damn girl you killed Walder Frey
Your sass was handmade for somebody like me
Come on now follow my lead
I may be Lannister man don’t mind me
Say boy, let’s not talk to much
Grab on my needle and put that body on me
Come on now follow my lead
Come-come on now follow my lead (mmmmm)
I’m in love with the face of you
It changes like Bolton’s allegiance do
Although my heart is falling too
I’m in love with your booty
Last night you were in my dreams
And now my bed sheets smell like you
Every day killing somebody brand new
I’m in love with your boooty
Q: Who wants some Daddycup and hiccstrid chilrins?
A: You. You wants some Daddycup and hiccstrid chilrins.
(this has been sitting on my harddrive half-finished for months and is not the least big proofread)
Peace and Quiet and Other Myths of Parenthood
Five days is really not a very long time to be away from
home. Hiccup has certainly been gone for longer.
But five days is apparently an eternity when you are under
ten years old. Hiccup feels horrible, because he understands his children’s
excitement to see him again after a few days of his absence, but he’s also
spent the entire night and most of the day flying and wants nothing more than
to collapse into his bed. So he kisses Astrid, and hugs his kids, and promises
to tell them all about the trip once he’s gotten some sleep, and now it’s time
to play the Quiet Game so Daddy can take a nap.
Hey guys, it’s story time again! Nothing new here but it was still interesting to hear.
So I met with a friend today who’s a psychologist and has recently taken a 6 months course on body language. I had told her that I liked One Direction but never mentioned the whole Harry&Louis thing, so I decided to put her new knowledge in good use and show her some stuff. I didn’t explain anything and asked her to watch the infamous caress video, she literally went ‘OMG DID YOU SEE THAT’ the moment it happened. I proceeded to explain the whole story to her and she asked me to show her more videos so I did, I showed her all the important moments and since she doesn’t even speak English she figured everything out just with the body language.
She said it was a “body language goldmine” and “the sort of obvious example you would use to teach someone about it”, said they were extremely obvious and told me their micro-expressions showed her so much fond she “couldn’t even handle it”. She told me a body language expert would be enough to convince the doubters and I was like lol you poor soul, that’s not going to work. She couldn’t believe there were actually people out there who didn’t see the love there, she was really interested in the antis and the whole idea of people in such deep denial they felt the need to act out like that. She even mentioned the Stages of Grief.
She also told me someone had clearly coached Louis into changing his behaviour, she said the difference between fetus!Louis and the actual one was “painful to watch”. She said those things happened all the time and that it was a painful process for the person, because they had to teach them how to control every aspect of their conscious activity (how to move and talk, the gestures, the posture, how you touched your hair or your face, the way you laugh and other horrible stuff).
So there it is, stuff that we’ve said 248579 times before but confirmed once again by an expert, and in front of my eyes too!
Meet Chance The Rabbit. Picked him up yesterday and he’s settling in. Well enough to show us his nomnom action on a strand of hay. #rabbit #rabbitsofinstagram #netherlanddwarfrabbit #bunny #bunniesofinstagram
thewritersramblings prompted me with pacific rim au for bellarke a lifetime ago, and it’s finally happening. even I don’t believe it
(trigger for mention of drug use/abuse and overdose)
She dreams of Aurora Blake, even if she doesn’t mean to.
Drift compatibility is funny that way, in that the more you repress your memories, the biggest the chances of chasing the rabbit. The Blakes are not compatible for that reason – perfect partners on paper but incapable of working in tandem in practice. Too many memories, the feelings bitter, the words left unsaid. So Bellamy doesn’t repress his memories with her, the same way Clarke doesn’t dwell on her father’s death. It is easier that way, even if painful. The memories – images, sounds, smells – glide over them in the drift, and Clarke always make sure not to focus on them too much, not on hers, not on his. Bellamy does the same, their relationship built on respect and secrecy, something she is grateful for.
She dreams of Aurora Blake, but it is not her dream.
