She got me praying all hours of the night, say she want my heart, She pulling me to the river, drawing me with her siren's call, Done gave her my heart but now she wants my soul, Well I already sold it to the man in red, "Fell in love with your charm," but its a curse; cos am dead, Girl you're not who you say, bad girl they say you are Innocence isn't where am at, wear your crucifix bae Don't make me out all serious bonnie, slave to this bad religion, Unrequited love, praying at my shrine, cos I don't have a heart Like a dead man walking, I lay at your side, Make sure you're alright in my world, atleast that for you girl,

I gave her my heart but she wanted my soul

I feel like a girl most when I’m cutting my own hair
over the bathroom sink and leave the pieces
for my mother to clean up. He calls and tells me
of a dream he had where we moved in together
and all I wanted to do was leave. I’m texting
in all-capitals and writing in lowercase cursive
and I don’t know when this began to matter,
but it does. When he wears the sweater I bought
for him I cry into the sleeves because I know
he doesn’t love just anyone. Months later,
I am still keeping the light on for as long as I can
without having to explain myself. I see pretty teens
everywhere, pink-faced from laughing,
teeth glittering in their mouths. It makes my
heart sore. Remember driving around in your car
with the windows rolled down and the wind
in our faces going who knows where? The sun
so bright the streets couldn’t do anything
but shine. Happiness was your car and how
we were together in your car. Even now I am still
turning to you out of habit. Even now I always
look for you in the split second before laughing.
And I list the places I’m in love with but am unable
to visit. And I miss you. And the radio plays all
of our favorite songs. And I still can’t remember
how I was before.

A little something I wanted to share while on hiatus!

Q: Is Akashi like his mother or father? Please tell us their names!
A: Like his mother. Father -> Masaomi Mother -> Shiori

Q: Does Akashi always cut his own hair?
A: That was the only time. It’ snot like it happens all the time.

Q: How many workers work at the Akashi home? What kind of food do they eat?
A: 8 workers. His mom made it while she was alive, so pretty normal food. After her death, a hired chef makes amazing food.

Q: Out of Murasakibara’s maiubou, what is Akashi’s favorite flavour? What does he think of Midorima’s Oha Asa horoscope?
A: Steamed food flavours. To the horoscopes… “Hmm”.


Mary Shelley’s dressing case

Shelley kept relics of the ones she loved—collecting their hair in folded paper packets and treasuring the objects they used daily. Some of these are still in this case, such as this packet with Byron’s hair. The bracelet pictured here was made from Shelley’s own hair, cut from her corpse. Not here is Percy Bysshe Shelley’s heart, which Edward Trelawny claims he snatched from the fire cremating P.B. Shelley’s remains on the beach at Viareggio. According to family lore, the heart was given to Mary, who stored it in a copy of Adonais, the elegy Percy Bysshe wrote on the death of Keats. Some say she kept this book in her portable desk. I don’t know where her portable desk is, but the heart is said to have been buried with their son and the copy of Adonais is at the Bodleian, as is this dressing case.

Dirk headcanons

  • He has a terrible singing voice, its just the worst, dear god someone stop him from singing in the shower
  • hes cut his own hair his entire life, and is surprising good at cutting others hair (hairdresser au hint hint)
  • when he was younger he didnt cut his hair though, so toddler dirk with waist length hair
  • dirk loves the ocean, its home to him, but also has so much to explore (he even made a scuba kit)
  • Dirk taught himself to play the piano, but only with a shitty keyboard his bro left, which is stuck on the space sounds setting
  • hes a cat person, even if hes never met a cat, he might as well considering how much roxy talks about hers, dogs just seem loud and too excitable
  • when reading books he tends to make weird facial expressions to match what the main character is feeling, he has no idea hes doing it
  • jane sent him cake when he mentioned he’d never had any, complete with orange icing and an ironically bad piped horse, he loved it (she sends him one every birthday after that)
  • he really likes the idea of flowers, and got really excited when he saw some post game, even though the first flower was a dandelion weed (he pressed it, and started a scrapbook of all the flowers he could find, with the help of jake and jade) 

I was joking with my coworker about Frisk’s sprite, and told him that my headcanon had Frisk as a kid whose parents were a bit absentee. They spent most their time playing by themself and kind of trying to learn to take care of themself, which is why they were so self-reliant when they were in Underground. This included cutting their own hair–problem being they never got it quite right.
