anonymous asked:

Would I be able to request Yusuke finding out his S/O has a palace please?

Of course! Thank you for the request! Enjoy!


Yusuke:

  • It had been weeks since Yusuke last contacted S/O.
  • He would have shrugged it off as them being busy, but they had ceased texting him, and they were nowhere to be seen.
  • Every person he questioned inevitably led to a dead end, and with nowhere else to turn to, he whipped out his phone.
  • Yusuke desperately hoped that the suspicions lurking in the depths of his brain were wrong.
  •  Alas, when he uttered S/O’s name, the dreaded sound of confirmation echoed throughout his room.
  • He didn’t begin panicking until he ascertained that they weren’t in Mementos.
  • A mix of emotions had flooded his heart: wrath, pain, incompetence, and sadness.
  • A Palace takes quite a bit of time to develop, so it was natural to assume that S/O has retained their distortion for years.
  • That’s what tore at his heart the most: the fact that he never realized it.
  • However, he knew that this was no time to be wallowing in self-pity. S/O needed him right now, and he’ll be damned if he let them suffer for another moment longer.
  • Yusuke immediately began brainstorming; the ‘where’ appeared to be their school.
  • Deducting their distortion was the tricky part; it usually was for most people. He retrieved everything he possessed from his relationship with S/O; the notes that they exchanged between each other, S/O’s drawings, and the pictures that they took together are only a few of the items that he cherished.
  • But he cherished their well-being far more.
  • This task was proving to be quite difficult, though. He searched every corner of his mind for a possible answer.
  • He glanced back at the notes. Exams are coming soon. T_T Wish me luck at school! It’s showtime!
  • The word ‘showtime’ stuck in his mind for some reason.
  • Hm, a show… musical, theater, comedy, movie, carnival, parade…
  • “Circus?”
  • The affirmative ‘ding’ that resounded in his ears felt deafening.
Audiobook - Neil Hilborn

Hi! Thank you for purchasing the audiobook of “How to Ruin Your Life, for Fun and Profit”,
As read by the author, Neil Hilborn.

So, you wanna be unhappy?
You probably think that you need to be in pain to be an interesting person - and you’re right!
People who “care” about you will tell you that you don’t need to suffer to be important,
But just remember, musicians are always most popular the day after they die!

So, are you ready to matter to someone?

Step One
Hate yourself.
You are, presumably, a human being between the ages of alive and dead,
So the chances are you’re already there!
Congratulations!

Step Two
Fall in love.
People will tell you that this takes years,
But we have a secret method that will allow you to fall for anyone in under a week:
The trick is, you must be completely unable to tell the difference between love and codependence!

Step Three
Fall in love again.
People will tell you that this is impossible, given the love already inside you,
But they don’t know you -
Your love is limitless,
Your heart is a well that goes all the way down,
You can fit everyone in there!
But remember to lie about it!
Love can’t exist in the knowledge of other love.

Step Four
At this point you may be debating your decision to totally fuck up your life,
So ask yourself:
Would you rather be happy or interesting?
Would you rather be on the news, or just watching it?
Happy people don’t make history,
Happy people make children, then die.

Step Five
Develop a mental disorder that makes you aloof and impossible to contact.
When Someone accuses you of being a bad person,
Call them insensitive!
Instant moral superiority!

Step Six
All of the elements are in place,
Now, start sabotaging your own life.
This isn’t crazy, this is research,
This is material,
This is necessary for your personal growth.

Step Seven
You’ve been in love with two people for a while now,
Tell them about each other!
Whichever one stays is the winner!

Step Eight
Call your boss a fascist dog lover.
Tell your friends fun lies about your other friends.
Tell your mother that she was the reason you tried to kill yourself,
It just isn’t depression without total isolation!

Nine
Do something to hurt yourself.
It may be a bicycle “accident”,
It may be a razor -
Literal or not, make yourself bleed,

Step Ten
Create something.
Paint your scars on the side of a building.
Write a poem and shout it at strangers.
The misery circus is parading into town and you are holding the banner,
Miles of people are following you,
They are all wearing grey,
A rainbow of grey,
They are all watching as they kick themselves bloody on their own feet.
You have scars,
And everyone wants to kiss them,
This is stigmata pornography,
This is inspiration.
You are why they are still alive,
You are morning in a world of midnights,
You are so brave,
And they want to be brave just like you!

Look at what you have built.
Everything you loved has gone.
Tell yourself it was worth it.

Swan’s Song

Half asleep, I hear a voice.

In moments that feel
like swimming through
blood-warm ink, his
words creep through
as if through water.

Face to face, I greet the cast.

Angels and demons
dance, but their dance
is a fight, and I am
not fooled by choreography.

Like a circus on parade.

Swan’s Song plays between
my ears on the bad days.
Sometimes, just before
I slip into the ink-cool
blood of seizure.

Come together in me now.

– S. E. De Haven (SnuffyArt)

This fakemon started out with a simple idea, although the end product may be over the top. The idea was to use tesla coils for tusks, but since that alone would make for a dull design, I needed something else to spruce things up. Circus/parade elephants rarely have the tip of their tusks uncovered, so the clothing those elephants have (with a dash of indian details) made for a good way to give them some extra flair. I may have gone overboard with it, but at the same time, removing any detail might make it worse, so this is where I’ve landed for the time being. Base stage was reverse engineered for the most part, was tricky to find a lesser counterpart to tesla coils so the general “electric” look would have to do. Also considered adding another color to the final stage, feel free to comment if you agree or disagree.

But despite all my second thoughts, I feel overall happy with it. It’s an elephant with tesla tusks, come on.

Names comes from Elephant + Infant and Tesla + Elephant.

Notable moves: Thunder, Thunderbolt, Discharge, Volt Switch, Thunder Wave, Wild Charge, Earthquake, Earth Power, Hydro Pump, Slack Off, Roar, Heavy Slam
