I’d really like a Hamlet who doesn’t start out as distanced and sarcastic but naive, optimistic and affectionate by nature bit suddenly is thrown in an environment that makes it impossible for him to be himself.

I want him yearning to hug his mum at the wedding, and actually beaming with joy for the blink of an eye when Claudius praises him before being torn again, feeling as if he is betraying his real dad. I want him sobbing after his encounter with the ghost desperately hoping to prove the ghost wrong, talking of revenge as a necessity but being scared of it. Not because he is a coward but he can’t bear to loose his faith in humanity, to see his safe world shattered.

In that context the nunnery speech could also be done in an almost loving way, despite the harsh words. Seeing his world fall apart he wants to rescue the last bit that is whole in it. Ophelia. Believing that monastery walls can really shut out the world that he is facing but that is not his world and he’d much rather make peace with mother and uncle and feel loved once more just…..

He can’t.

(Also his speech after Polonius’ death not in a mocking way but in a state bordering hysteria, filled with blank horror)

the signs as ghosts on halloween

Aries: The Vengeful Ghost

They wreak havoc upon those who wronged them in their past life and spend the entirety of halloween hunting down their enemies and ensuring that they pay for their sins

Taurus:  The Hungry Ghost

This is the ghost that, for whatever reason, did not find what they were looking for in the afterlife and seeks loved ones, riches or even home comforts in our world

Gemini: The Confused Ghost

The ghost that does not even know that they are dead, they live in a state of denial and try their best to live their normal lives despite the obvious differences

Cancer: The Residual Ghost

They haunt one specific place that means something significant to their lives or even their death and are forced to stay there

Leo: The Dramatic Ghost

This ghost thrives on halloween as they have a taste for the theatrics, scaring children and making the night as spooky and magical as can be

Virgo: The Friendly Ghost

The ghost that desperately tries to communicate with others and make friends with those they come into contact with, they do not harm or scare others

Libra: The Protective Ghost

These are the ghosts that either protect their loved ones or take care of those they have recently become attached to in death, they ensure their loved ones are safe from other ghosts on halloween

Scorpio: The Lustful Ghost

They fall for humans easily and love to play sexual tricks on those they come into contact with, on halloween night they typically inhabit young womens bodies and entice men for their lustful desires

Sagittarius: The Playful Ghost

This ghosts favourite night is halloween as they can play all the pranks possible without being discovered, they never harm humans but  love to scare them and particularly target children as they are the easiest to frighten

Capricorn: The Reserved Ghost

They do not see the point in scaring others or torturing themselves by following loved ones they cannot communicate with, so instead they visit their favourite places and are thankful for being allowed to walk the earth

Aquarius: The Unpredictable Ghost

These are the ghosts whose moods can change swiftly, one moment they will be playing with the kids in fancy dress and the next minute tracking down an enemy, they are not to be crossed on Halloween night

Pisces: The Sentimental Ghost

This is the ghost who spends their days following round their loved ones and keeps them safe from harm, they typically stay with their family or lover and never leave their side

Inktober #24 - snare drum

Sara could never have known that the pen she happened to borrow from a classmate just happened to be filled with cursed ink, and that the classmate in question just happened to be a desperate ghost who was determined to get rid of the accursed pen at all costs. But these things do happen (this is high school after all). Unluckily, the cursed pen turned Sara’s arms into inky black masses, but luckily, this not only appeared to have no negative effects on Sara’s playing, but in fact seemed to have even improved her drumming skills by a significant amount. Regardless, now Sara makes sure she never forgets to bring her own pens to class.

I’m so behind on KH art, but every time I pick up a pencil, OOC and ref-less SW dorks fall out of it.   ¯\(°A°)/¯

A Place to Live

by Lora Mathis

My head is not
a comfortable home
The walls of it are worn
Its floors creak
and if you sleep in it
You will be kept up by
the footsteps of ghosts
desperate to leave.

My head is a suffocating well
I cannot climb out of
I have been sitting
in the darkness of it
for long enough
that my eyes have grown accustomed
to dimness
That this choking now feels like
home.

My head is not
a comfortable home
The walls of it are worn
Its floors creak
and if you sleep in it
You will be kept up by

desperate to leave.

My head is a suffocating well
I cannot climb out of
I have been sitting
in the darkness of it
for long enough
that my eyes have grown accustomed

That this choking now feels like
home.

A web-comic coming soon to a screen near you….

Desperate Ghost: a dark comedy

Here’s a sneak peek at the characters I’ve developed. I don’t want to give too much away, but it’s mainly about a desperate, lonely ghost named Winnie who entangles herself with the lives of the Liberum twins, Clarence and Beatrice. 

Their story will include things such as a pathetic diary, witchcraft, feral children, many instances of escapism, a Man Eating Plant and a rat named Edgar who is smarter than your average toddler. (Along with much, much more melancholic weirdness.)

(PS. Sorry about the font for their names, I know it’s gimmicky but I just couldn’t help myself)
