darkness ascending

in thinking about my New OC the ascended dark apostle -> daemon prince villain, I have found myself on a cosmic horror/regal villain kick 

started off with ‘the void’ based on some comments I saw the other day. not bad. wish it had gone a bit harder into the cosmic horror themes, but there’s only so much you can do on a budget and it was an admirable effort considering

gonna watch hellraiser 2 since my sister informs me it’s much more entertaining than the first one

after that maybe i’ll re-watch event horizon or the thing

anybody else got any suggestions?

Understanding your Moon Sign and Rising Sign.

Your moon sign and rising sign give an in-depth look into what makes you tick. Your sun sign rules your personality—it’s your soul. Your moon sign rules your emotional core—it’s your heart. Your rising sign rules your outer appearance—it’s your book cover.

•Your Moon Sign:
Your moon sign reveals your inner self. It can give insight into the way you handle your emotions and fears; it can also give insight into the way you love and feel. The moon also governs your moods. It’s the unguarded you, the you only those closest to you know. It is your subconscious.
It’s in times of significant stress that your moon sign can truly reveal itself. During trying times, your actions are influenced by emotion and instinct, so the side of you that you normally keep hidden can suddenly come to the surface and conflict with your usual outward personality. This can make you feel crazy, like you aren’t acting like yourself, but it’s in these times that you might be more “yourself” than ever. Your moon sign also makes itself known in your intimate relationships. It can determine how you love and whether or not love is important to you—it can even play a role in the type of people you are attracted to.

•Your Rising Sign
Your rising sign—also known as your ascendant—represents the way others see you, your general impression on people, and your spontaneous reactions. Upon meeting you, people will interact with your rising sign. If you feel nervous and anxious inside, yet everyone sees you as calm and laid-back, your rising sign may be dramatically different from your moon or sun sign.
Your rising sign is so outward, it can even influence your physical characteristics and mannerisms. Those with an Aries ascendant most likely walk quickly, have broad shoulders, and are prone to headaches and sinus problems. Those with a Gemini rising are often tall and slender with dark hair. Virgo ascendants may have weak chins, but they have big brains. Librans are often good looking and Scorpios often have piercing eyes.

Since the ascendant is specific to a certain time and place, and represents the environment you were born into, it often reflects your childhood and upbringing. It’s during this time that we learn how to navigate society and how to present ourselves to the world. If you were conditioned to present yourself as something contrary to who you actually are, your ascendant can function as a shield that obfuscates your real nature. In fact, many astrologers view the ascendant as a mask.

  • Aries ascendant/Libra descendant: attractive to outgoing, enthusiastic, dominant people/attracted to charming, peaceful, social people
  • Taurus ascendant/Scorpio descendant: attractive to stable, sensual, beautiful people/attracted to mysterious, dark, passionate people
  • Gemini ascendant/Sagittarius descendant: attractive to curious, sociable, adaptable people/attracted to adventurous, honest, knowledgeable people
  • Cancer ascendant/Capricorn descendant: attractive to caring, shy, introverted people/attracted to strong, ambitious, reserved people
  • Leo ascendant/Aquarius descendant: attractive to confident, charismatic, friendly people/attracted to detached, humanitarian, eccentric people
  • Virgo ascendant/Pisces descendant: attractive to giving, intellectual, perfectionistic people/attracted to dreamy, submissive, creative people
  • Libra ascendant/Aries descendant: attractive to charming, peaceful, social people/attracted to outgoing, enthusiastic, dominant people

Okay the fact that this shot actually exists pretty much makes my life. They didn’t show the wrist touch in the movie, but they FILMED it and I’m dying of happiness because this is such a crucial moment for Lucissa.

Malfoy glanced sideways at his wife. She was staring straight ahead, quite as pale as he was, her long blonde hair hanging down her back, but beneath the table her slim fingers closed briefly on his wrist. At her touch, Malfoy put his hand into his robes, withdrew a wand, and passed it along to Voldemort…

The love.

Paring: Bucky x reader

Characters: Bucky

TW: nightmares

A/n: It very short sorry

You groggily shuffled to the kitchen for a glass of water, with The Deathly Hallows tucked under your elbow. You stopped when you heard whimpering coming from Bucky’s room. You smiled sadly and walked over to his door and poked my head in. 

“Buck?” you ask quietly and enter after you hear his hum in approval. You walk in and drop the book on the bed, making him jump and you giggle. 

“What was that?” He said paranoid. 

“Just Harry Potter , We’ve read through the first 6 books already. We do this almost every night James. Then were gonna watch the movies! “  You giggle and climb into bed next to him.

“I know doll, “ He laughs and pulls the covers over you and then turns on a dim light for you to see the words. 

“The Dark Lord Ascending” You say and clear your voice. 

The two me appeared out of nowhere, a few yards apart in the narrow, moonlit lane. For a second they stood quite still, wands directed at each other’s chests;then , recognizing each other, they stowed their wands beneath their cloaks and started walking briskly in the same direction…” 

You continue reading until the sun rises, by this time Bucky is snoring on your shoulder and you close the book yawning. You close the book, making sure to book mark the page your on and the page where Bucky fell asleep at. You curl under the covers and start to snooze off. 

Your eyes flutter open to Bucky sitting in bed, your head on his lap as he plays with your hair. He concentrates on the book in front of him, his hair pulled up in a small bun meeting at the crown of his head. You always joked about putting his hair up but when he actually did you felt blessed. Despite your religion you knew Bucky was a gift to you and you didn’t know how your life would be without him. You wouldn’t get to wake up to him sipping a cup of coffee with a big fluffy dog drawn on it (fubar? @yawpkatsi ??) 

“I see you staring Doll”

“Nope, I think all that magic has gotten to you”

Appearances (Rising Sign)


Aries ascending tends to better-than-average height, spare body, rather elongated face and neck. The complexion is often ruddy; the hair may be red or ‘sandy’ in color. The frontal area of the head is usually pronounced. The eyebrows may be heavy and tend to bridge the nose. The forehead can be rather wide and the chin pointed. It is probable there may be scars or marks about the head. In the male, the Adam’s apple may protrude more than normal.


Taurus ascending usually gives a solid, hard body of about average height. There is a tendency to plumpness of the torso. Usually, the face is square, the neck rather short and big. There is a general fullness to all the facial and bodily features. The eyes may be prominent or slightly protruding. The hair tends to the lighter shades of brown. The shoulders may be wide and square, chest thick. The nostrils may be flared, especially when they are angry. The hands may be somewhat ‘pudgy.’


Normally, Gemini ascending causes the native to be rather slender, erect, and of average or less-than-average height. The legs frequently are ‘birdlike.’ They seldom have an overweight problem because of their abundant nervous energy. The body is best described as wiry. The arms tend to be rather long and thin; fingers may be likewise. The face seems to be ‘double"’ – there may be a cleft in the chin and even tip of the nose, which may be slightly hooked and sometimes reddish. Hair tends to dark brown.


Cancer ascendants are often nicely curved. Adults frequently have rather broadhips and tend to put on a bit of weight in that area. Height is normally short to medium. The arms may have a crab-like motion; legs tend to be short and stocky. Feet and hands may be small and delicate. There may be a noticeable undulating gait to the walk. The face is usually round, Moon-shaped, and the profile may be inwardly curved as the Moon appears when not full.


Leo ascending normally is tall, broad-shouldered, and large of frame. There is a tendency to put on weight after a streamlined youth. Often the hair appears'sunshine bright.’ The smile may be broad and beaming. The brisk walk and carriage is regal – full of pride and dignity, and may be even pompous at times. On many, the hair grows low and thick on the neck, much as the lion’s mane. Everything about the face seems to be 'generous’ in size and proportion


Virgo ascending tends to average height, average weight, and an angular but solid build. Usually, the shoulders and hips are fairly wide. It may be easy to tack on a few pounds of extra weight. Facial features are typically small but nicely shaped. The nose may be slightly hooked at the end. Complexion tends to be fair and smooth. The bone structure of the face usually makes this ascendant-type quite photogenic. The walk is often smooth and graceful. Generally, the appearance might be described as 'clean-cut.’


Usually, the body is well-formed, inclined to be tall, slender, with a tendency toward stoutness in middle age. The hair is well kept and typically dark or black in color. Because of the Venus influence, many Libra ascendants can be termed 'beautiful’ in appearance. Features usually are nicely shaped; teeth may be 'pearly,’ lips generous and finely chiseled. Many have naturally curly hair. Usually, there is a pleasant roundness to all features.


The height is usually above average. Scorpio ascending makes for a stout body generally and a face which may seem 'stuffed’ or 'puffy.’ The eyes may be large and penetrating; they may be the outstanding facial feature. Hair typically is black, thick, coarse – often curly. The nose may be seen as 'Roman.’ Skin might be sallow and somewhat oily. The walk may be quick and 'bouncy.’


'Distinguished looking’ is a term which will describe many with Sagittarius ascending. The native may be rather tall and large but not overweight until well past middle age. The face, like Jupiter, tends to be roundish and jovial, somewhat elongated. The teeth may be largeand can protrude. The hair is dark in youth but impressively white in later years. There often is a tendency to stamp or scrape the feet. 


The stature is normally average to slightly less than average. The chest area is usually rather flat; and, the body in general tends toward being lean, except for the legs, which more likely than not will be heavy. Ankles frequently are thick. The facial features may tend to be rather small and sharp or pointed in appearance. Oftentimes the skin and hair will be darker than other members of the same family not having Capricorn ascending. The hair is very dark, often black


Aquarius ascending often gives what might be termed a 'striking’ appearance. Height tends to be average to above. The build is full and square in most respects. The waist may be long. The facial features are usually rather even and might be called 'handsome.’ This ascendant probably has an excellent profile. The walk may be sudden and eccentric – like the thinking processes of this unpredictable native.


Pisces ascending tends to be relatively small and well proportioned. They may put on extra weight later in life. Arms and legs usually are short; hands may be small and 'artistic.’ This ascendant tends often to give the individual large, dreamy eyes and long, thick lashes. The mouth and lips may be soft and sensitive; the nose small and well formed. There is a tendency toward a double chin, even a triple chin if much overweight. The feet may be unusual in some way.

The morning sun shone through the windows inside the house. Dust particles were visible in the yellow rays of sunlight. Slowly but certain you came back with conscious and awakened slowly. You moved your body and heard Björn mumble when you did so. A yawn came out of your mouth as you turned around. “Björn.” You whispered and leaned towards his ear. The both of you were still in the sofa from the evening before. “Hmm?” He answered sleep-drunk. The confusion in his eyes when he opened them made you giggle. “Good morning Björn Ragnarsson.” You whispered and put a soft kiss on his lips before you stood up. The blanket you took with you, leaving Björn in all his gracefulness on the sofa. “My head.” He said as he pinched his eyelids together and smiled towards the ceiling. With his hands covering his manhood as he stood up. “But also a good morning to you, my beautiful y/n.” He pressed a kiss on the crown of your hair. With his hand he stroke over your bare shoulders and walked to his clothes that hung before the stove. The fire had disappeared because of the lack of firewood, but the flames had managed to dry the both of your clothes by morning. “Now let me see.” You said with a concerned smile and walked upon him. “What?” he asked, didn’t knew what you were talking about. “Your side of course. The cut of the knife.” - “Oh, that.” He said and looked at himself. But there was not really much to see. The knife only went through the scarf-skin so it was nothing to worry about. “Are you lucky.” You said while raising your eyebrows. Björn laid his hand on your cheek and looked you straight into the eyes. “Ofcourse I’m lucky. Look at me.” He put a soft kiss on your lips and released you again. While Björn was putting on his clothes, you walked to the kitchen to prepare some kind of breakfast, not that he was very hungry while hungover.
But thinking that was a mistake. After he ate half a bread, four eggs and a lump of cheese he was just starting to feel fulfilled. You were laughing with the amount of food he was able to put through his throat. “What?” He asked you in a laughing way as he put the last piece of cheese in his mouth. “You surely are following your father’s advice.” You answered and stood up to clear the table. Björn shook his head while smiling and leaned aside towards you. He grabbed your belt and pulled you towards him. “Stop that.” He said and took the dishes from your hands, placed them back on the table again. “But I need to clean the mess you made.” You said giggling while Björn put you on his lap, one leg on each side of his body, your face pointed towards him. “Now stay still.” He ordered you in a fun way and grabbed your backside to prevent you from running away. Not that that was your intention. “What?” you asked him with laughter as you saw him staring at you with his bright blue eyes. “Can’t I look to you?” He asked and pulled you even closer. The smile on his lips was to melt for. You didn’t knew an answer, so you leaned blushful backwards. Your head was tilted backwards also so your hair floated through the air. Björn pressed his lips on your collarbone and kissed his way downwards your chest. A small sigh flew over your lips and made him stop what he was doing by running your fingers over his face. You leaned forward again and looked him in the eyes. “What do you want to do today?” He asked and stroke your hair back in place. “This.” You said and clamped your legs around him. Björn started to laugh. “We have plenty enough time to do this.” He answered and softly pressed his lower body against you. You tilted your head and raised an eyebrow from surprise. “Okay then. I still want to see you riding a horse.” You said eventually and an intense flickering appeared in your eyes. Björn pinched in your side playfully. “Are you challenging me right now?” He asked and stood up with you still on his lap. Slowly you slid back on your feet. “It isn’t a challenge if you already know who’s going to win.” You teased him and walked towards the door. “Watch your mouth you little rascal.” He started to run and chased you outside of the house. The only thing hearable was the laughter and screaming from the both of you. It was sensible that the thing that happened yesterday was still there. But the both of you didn’t mention it once. Maybe it was a good thing, trying to forget. For now.
“Are you sure you’re not going to fall off?” you asked him with laughter as you swung your feet over the back of your dappled grey mare. “Very sure.” Björn answered and ascended the dark brown stallion the stable boy had given him. He pressed his heels against the ribs of the horse and it jumped forward in rapture. Björn laughed, pulled the reins and turned his horse while waiting for you. He was amused with what had yet to come. You rolled your eyes when he did that show-off and commanded your mare forward also. It was clearly visible that he possessed some horse-riding skills, but you didn’t knew how far they’d take him. “Are you really going to take both the axe and the shield?” You asked when he bond his shield to his back and put his axe in the leather loop by his waist. Björn didn’t answer, he only looked at you with a serious glance in his eyes before he made his horse walk forward. Immediately you understood he didn’t wanted to talk about it and there was no way you could talk him over. “So where are we going then?” you asked to continued the conversation and came to ride alongside him. “The little lake in the mountains?” he suggested while looking at the sun that burned in the sky. For the time of the year it was very warm. At a footpace both of your horses walked forward. Here and there Björn’s stallion snorted at your mare, but further they behaved very well. It reminded you somehow to Björn himself. So you started to laugh in disguise. “Always laughing at me, aren’t you?” He said and looked sideward to you. You shook your head and looked the other way to hide your laughter. “Just make sure you can follow.” Björn added in a playful way and pressed his heels in the ribs of the horse. The stallion squeaked softly before he jumped forward and took off with a rattling gallop. You let the reins slip through your hands and leaned forward, only to spur on your horse and chase Björn.
Slowly but certain you gained in on him. The hooves of the horses spade the ground and left deep footprints. Björn looked over his shoulder towards you and laughed. “I’ll get you.” You shouted and pressed your heels harder against the sides of your mare. You bowed forward and took the end of the reins to slap softly against the shoulder of your horse. Eventually Björn slowed down and let you gain on him. “Surrendering already?” You asked him and pulled the reins softly. Björn shook his head with a smile on his face. “I just don’t want you to feel bad for losing with such a distance.” You leaned to the side and pushed his shoulder with a soft laughter. Both the horses went back to an energetic footpace, their breath clearly raised just like yours and Björn’s was. “Here.” He said and pointed to some trees next to the path. “What?” you asked and tried to see where he was pointing at. “Follow me, I know a shorter route.” Björn said and guided his horse through some bushes. It was a path that not many knew so it was taken over by the wilderness. Branches brushed against your mare as well as in your face. And because of the attention you were paying to the trees, you weren’t ready to respond quickly enough when your mare jumped aside in fear. You slid half out of your saddle, held on to the manes of the horse and tried to keep your balance. Björn looked over his shoulder to you with a worried look in your eyes. “Are you okay?” He asked and pushed a branch to the side to look at you. “I am.” You said and pushed yourself back in the saddle. The horse beneath you stood dead still, watching something in the distance, unable to move. And while she did so, Björn noticed that his horse also had his eyes focused on something. “What is it?” You asked with a soft whisper and tried to watch what they were seeing. “Maybe a deer.” Björn whispered also and leaned forward. He didn’t sounded convinced and from the corner of his eye he glanced at you. “Stay here.” He whispered and dismounted, landing softly on his feet. Immediately he pulled his axe from his side and held it in front of him. “You need that for a deer?” You frowned your eyebrows and shook your head while you saw Björn taking off in the bushes.
A few minutes went by and your mare had found her calm again, just as Björn’s stallion. But from Björn himself there was not a single sign. He had disappeared in the vegetation and you hadn’t heard from him since. Slightly nervous you moved in your saddle, and without wanting it the memories from the night before came up in your mind. With a certain fear in your eyes you looked around, hoping to see the blonde hair from your lover appear. And suddenly the bushes in the distance started to move, heavy footsteps sounded. “Björn?” You asked with a shiver in your voice and pulled the reins from your mare to keep her in place. “It’s Kettil.” You heard Björn roaring, his voice sounded exhausted. He appeared from the bushed again and a heavy weight fell from your shoulder. But the same weight was added back again when you realised what name he had called. “What? Kettil?” Without answering Björn jumped on his stallion and drilled his heels in the ribs of the horse, not even taking the effort to put on his stirrups. “He is trying to flee Kattegat.” A certain dark anger sounded in his voice when his horse took off galloping.

So hey…

- If the dot is Sakhmet attacking
- Amaterasu the fire as her intended target…

Then the beetle symbolizes the fans who became casualty ? So the fans would share the same symbol as the Great Darkness… We assumed the Great Dark was linked to (a) god(s), but what if we got it wrong ? What if the Great Dark is not linked to the gods, but to their fans ? And the beetle swarm the manifestation of their “performance” and hunger for the gods ? After all, aren’t the “common folk” the very people the gods are supposed to be sacrificing themselves for ? And isn’t “the Destroyer”, whose power shares the nature and nourrishes the Great Dark, an “ascended fangirl” ?
