Luke:

”Is that drool on your leggings?” The sudden question made you plug out your earbud, looking over at Michael with a curious expression until you looked down at your lap. A small smile embraced your face by the dark stains visible even if the fabric was black and you ran a hand through Luke’s hair carefully. You hadn’t realized yourself, you had expected him to just rest his eyes for a short minute but he was out like a light. No wonder though he had been up since 4 this morning to catch the flight. Not to mention that the plane didn’t have much space, leaving Luke to be smashed up against you on the small seats. His long legs were cramped with the lack of space and he was in a serious need of sleep but finding the right position wasn’t optional. Until he moved down so he was resting on with his head and upper body on your lap. “He’s sleepy. It’s only a good sign.” You giggled and ran your fingers through his hair once again, expecting that was the main reason why he had ease with it. Michael made a short disgusted look that only made you laugh even more when he shook his head and focused back on the book in front of him.

Calum:

“What’s your star sign?” You questioned after scanning the magazine page of horoscopes, spending majority of the time reading on your own until you finally settled on finding Calum’s. Looking down with a curious expression your lips parted and your eyes widened slightly. His cheek was pressed against your shoulder, the bass resting on top of his stomach with his hands placed on top of it. You hadn’t even realized he had stopped playing until now but the way he was looking was pure. You could tell how comfortable he was, the way his eyelashes were moving as if he was having a great dream. His lips were pursed but they still wore the corners upwards. It was a lazy Sunday which meant that not much was on the schedule and Calum used that for the benefit. He wasn’t the one to take a nap but when he did he would do it at random moments like these. But they always seemed to have the same thing in common and that was being next to you whether it was just his cheek touching your shoulder or hands linked. Focusing back on the magazine you smiled happily and leaned your head against his, feeling a sudden rush of relaxation go through your veins. Moments like these were your favourite.

Michael:

“Is he sleeping?” Calum questioned while looking up from his phone, catching your attention and made you look down at Michael. “I can’t see his face.” You giggled and moved forward with your neck to at least get a glimpse of his face, seeing his lips pouting while his eyes were closed. His head was situated in the middle of your chest on the couch in the dressing room, the faint sound of music being played on the stage for soundcheck. “He is out like a light.” Calum observed while scratching his chin, and you noticed it too. “No wonder though.” You giggled and ran a hand through his hair, “He went to the dentist earlier. He had to get eight fillings.” Calum’s eyes widened in realization of Michael’s source of tiredness. Looking down at the poor boy with a sad smile he nodded his head understanding and clapped him on the knee. “I hope he feels better when he wakes up then.” You nodded your head agreeing while pressing your lips against his forehead, giving him repeated kisses and wrapped your arms around his waist. “Me too. I don’t like seeing him as exhausted as this, he sat at the dentist chair for three hours.” Smiling up at Calum your eyes went back to Michael lovingly, pressing one final kiss.

Ashton:

“Do you think you can eat something or should I just make a bowl of yogur-,” Pausing in track by your question when your eyes adverted down to his tired state, his eyelashes resting against his cheek sleepily. “Wait, when did you start sleeping?” You questioned yourself out in wonder, not really knowing why you did that because it was obvious he didn’t really have a reply to that. You did hear his faint snores while watching TV in front of you but you hadn’t thought much of it. A package of medicine was resting neatly on the coffee table in front of you along with a glass of water. Ashton’s tonsils had grown lately, to the point of him barely speaking without sounding like someone who was getting choked. It took him some while to drag himself to the doctor but when he did, he found out he was in fact infected with tonsillitis. “I can’t even find something for myself.” You giggled while watching him rest his cheek against your stomach, your hand resting on top of his back while caressing through the fabric. It was such a pure and sad moment even if you were at the point of starving you couldn’t get yourself to wake him up just to get it, rather wanting to smile down at him and nuzzling his cheek hoping he would get better.

 We are all dancing with the demon in our minds

You have to embrace your own darkness

Get rid of your demon

And you’ll lose your angel

THE HERMIT

I can finally post this since my pc is back ! My second card for @ignispectus‘s project (second slot) ! The Hermit card mean the achievement of something, he’s continuing the path he has chosen. Despite the difficulty, you will find the truth thanks to your knowlegde.

Have you ever felt like embracing your dark side? Everyone has a dark side of their soul in them, hidden in them. But have you ever felt like instead of fighting them, embracing them. Have you ever considered instead of searching for light, accepting the darkness? Have you ever felt like your darkness makes you who you are sometimes, it makes you strong. Have you ever felt like you need the pain to keep it as an anchor? To remind you that after everything happened to you, you survived.
Well, it happens to me. Sometimes I just feel like I should stop running and do all the things I am frightened of doing. Maybe it’s time I accept all of me, the darkness, the monsters, the angels and the kindness. Everything. Because that’s me. That’s who I am. And if I won’t accept myself then who will.

Echoes of Darkness - Chapter 6

Cover by the awesome Midstorm

Echoes of Darkness: “Think of me as your guide, but only until you’ve learned to embrace your powers.” But the Dark One lies. That voice, that presence never truly leaves—no matter how you try to fight it. Rumplestiltskin knows that better than anyone: he listened to it for 300 years.

This ‘verse is open to prompts!

Chapter 6—“A Useful Hobby"

Prompt: “What does the spinning do for him (is it just a hobby to pass eternity or does it make Dark One shut up?)  Can we see what happens the first time he spins gold? Does he wet himself or what?  (Twyla Mercedes)”

Not sleeping was strange.  Bae slumbered much more peacefully now that he had a better bed; his son had even admitted that to him, a little shyly, the previous morning. Just looking in on his boy while Bae slept on a real mattress made Rumplestiltskin fill with a flush of pride.  He’d never been able to give Baelfire things like that before, little luxuries that made their lives so much better.  Zoso complained that they still lived like peasants, but so far as Rumplestiltskin and Bae were concerned, they now lived like royalty.  Real mattresses, thick blankets that Rumplestiltskin hadn’t had to make (even if Bae insisted on keeping the old ones, too, which touched Rumplestiltskin deeply), and fluffy pillows were things neither of them had ever had.  Even growing up with his aunts, who had been reasonably well off for spinsters, Rumplestiltskin had not been so fortunate to sleep on a thick mattress filled with feather instead of prickly straw. Now, however, they even had under-mattresses full of wool, which kept the feather mattresses from being too soft!

What my friends asked: What’s Gintama about?

What i said: Set in Edo which has been conquered by aliens named Amanto, the plot follows life from the point of view of samurai Gintoki Sakata, who works as afreelancer alongside his friends Shinpachi Shimura and Kagura in order to pay the monthly rent. 

What i meant: IT’S ABOUT FRIENDSHIP AND BEING FAMILY AND LOVE AND LOSS, AND LIFE AND DEATH AND FORGIVENESS AND GUILT, SKILL AND INTELLECT AND SOMETIMES A LITTLE BIT OF LUCK, FINDING THE EXTRAORDINARY IN THE SEEMINGLY ORDINARY. IT’S ABOUT LOOKING INSIDE AND REALIZING YOU’R A MEMBER OF A HUGE FAMILY: YOU ARE NOT A MEGANE, YOU ARE NOT A AMANTO, YOU ARE NOT A GORILLA, YOU ARE NOT A STALKER, YOU ARE A PART OF THIS UNIVERSE. IT’S ABOUT EMBRACING YOUR INNER DARKNESS SO THAT YOU CAN STAND IN THE LIGHT OF YOUR TRUTH. IT’S ABOUT HAVING GUTS TO DO WHAT’S RIGHT EVEN WHEN EVERYONE ELSE JUST RUNS AWAY. Yeah. That’s what Gintama is about.

Adventures in Legoland

The video of the Starkiller Base battle from the Lego game that has been doing the rounds doesn’t give you a full impression of the new dialogue - there is actually much more to hear, and I expect there are extra lines beyond those I have transcribed here. The video I’m using as the source for this transcript is here.

[Rey turns on the lightsaber. Rey and Kylo begin to fight.]

Kylo: It is you.

Kylo: You need a teacher. I can show you the ways of the Force.

Eey: You’re a monster.

Kylo: You could command armies.

Rey: No!

Kylo: You could bring planets to their knees with your merest whim.

Rey: No!

Kylo: You could crush your enemies.

[The fight enters its last stage]

Kylo: I can feel it in you. I can feel the darkness. Use your anger. Embrace the darkness.

Kylo: Feel it course through your veins.

[Kylo is lying on the ground, egging Rey on.]

Kylo: Keep striking at me. Surrender to it. Yes! Yes! That’s it!

This stuff is all very interesting, and it’s also strikingly different from the film. Overall, it’s obvious that they are putting more emphasis on the evil of Kylo Ren. In the game he does something the film doesn’t even imply, urging Rey to embrace the dark side and even encouraging her to hurt him to this end. He appeals to Rey’s desire for power and revenge, and clearly has a very high opinion of her power.

It’s also interesting to note that this is the first time where we actually hear the words “It is you” delivered by Adam Driver (yes, every single one of those lines is Driver. It’s beautiful). This line has been a source of massive speculation and theory generation, and it’s pretty sweet to hear it at last.

This is a busy New Moon… New truths revealed… Feelings could be intense at this time. Trust your instincts. Feelings never lie. Feelings are neither right nor wrong. What are your feelings telling you?

…This New Moon may bring to light the things you do that sabotage you. Are you buying into the illusion that you are unworthy?

…Arguing for your limitations will not bring what you want. Excuses do not produce results…This is a cleansing Moon. It will expose the truth…

Practice patience and compassion. Center yourself. This is your opportunity to heal old wounds.

Release. Let go of what no longer serves you. You will be liberated and free…

The Cancer New Moon is emotional intensity. Make friends with your feelings. Embrace your dark side. You are both shadow and light. Male and female. You are Yin and Yang.

Love all of you. This creates wholeness in you. It heals the schisms in your psychology.

The wheel of life is turning at an accelerated pace. Requiring you to change.

You are to shift, release and flow with your transformation…

The good news is you can heal yourself. You can achieve giant leaps in consciousness. You can use July to transform your fears, insecurities, and vulnerabilities.

You have the opportunity to overcome something that has been holding you back your whole life. These are awakening times.

There are three Moons in July. Wow! This is a game changing month…

Indulging in negative thinking is a luxury that you cannot afford. Complaining holds you in a constant state of resistance. Pushing away the things that you want.

Be proactive. Stay positive in spite of the obstacles or setbacks. Use the positive energy that is flowing to you. Come from love not fear.

Be truthful. Be open to the encouragement. Allow the energy in July to cleanse you.

Say yes to new relationships. Say yes to new beginnings. Say yes to the new opportunities that are now in your life. Be a warrior for love.

—  Cancer New Moon Be the Warrior for Love - Kelley Rosano

I do need to embrace your darkness 
for me to understand the magnificence 
of your light; I know well, 
where the wild things are - praying on
every unspoken word, holding your tongue.

I have seen the fire douse the rain
and in my house, the center room burns,
everything then awakes in me – as if 
I have been raised closed to the sun.

I know, in a sense that you are never alone

as you are dear to me still. 

I see you in your brightest luster,
the most beautiful kind of iridescence.
