faces of glory

“as long as i live, you will not harm him!”

this is mostly a testament as to why i shouldn’t draw whilst vaguely delirious at 1am (yes that background is MEANT to be atollon lmao) BUT -

i would love it if maul’s meeting with obi-wan was less ‘rar rar revenge time’ and more some sort of bizarre therapy session wherein obi-wan makes maul realise that he needs to make amends with ezra if he wants to move forward and have a chance at happiness. 

thus, maul leaves tatooine and makes a beeline for atollon - only to find that chopper base is under attack from the empire. maul cuts through the carnage to find ezra cornered by thrawn and a battalion of troopers (not pictured lmao) and - for, like, the first time ever - he acts unselfishly, taking on the battalion singlehandely so that ezra can escape alongside his crew. 

i take my coffee with cream
i take my streets with a banner
i take my cellphones without batteries
i take my friendships with a mask and a hammer
my belt is too big, my pants are too small, my laundry isn’t done
now let me tell you how society should be run

make some noise
something to scream to the silence
face the void
of what we’ll never hold

There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, 
and many of us will have to pass through
the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.

The facial features found on Sith Purebloods can be categorized into one of three* things:

  • Ridges
  • Spurs
  • Tendrils

*Brow-Stalks are also a thing, but those are technically a subcategory of Spurs.

In the past, the ridges and spurs would have been bony and their shape could be seen in the individual’s skull. However, after hybridization, there is no true “bony facial structure” left. Instead, the Sith have excess cartilage that define and shape their facial features, which won’t be seen on their skulls.

Ridges: Indents, grooves, lines, or whatever you wanna call them. Common in males and females, can be on brows, cheeks, chins, necks, foreheads, nose, etc. Ridges can either use a cartilage base under the skin, or simply be a result of the epidermis hardening and folding onto itself on top of the dermis. 

Spurs: Hardened, pointed edges that protrude out of a Sith’s face. Usually common on the chin, cheeks of males, or on brows in the form of stalks. Spurs always use cartilage as the base for its structure and support, and can be pressed and bent in the limited ways human ears and noses do.

Note how the spur turns into a ridge as it goes up, along the side of the face.

Tendrils: Found almost exclusively on male purebloods. They’re fleshy, they dangle, and are very sensitive to touch when compared to spurs and ridges. Because tendrils are fleshy and soft, they are filled with blood vessels and nerve endings. This means that you can either cause a great deal of pain or pleasure to the individual with tendrils… depending on what you do… obviously.

The tendrils are distinct from the spurs since the spurs are hard and immobile while tendril can be voluntarily moved by the individual.

Brow-Stalks: The brow stalks are technically another form of spurs. However, they are different in that the Sith can voluntarily move them. The movement of these brow stalks function much in the same way humans use their eyebrows: to aid in spoken and unspoken communication via facial expressions. This means that the cartilage in the brow stalks are much softer and more flexible than the ones found in other spurs.

The “spurs” on the brows can and will be moved at the individual’s whim, the spurs on the chin cannot.

It should be noted that brow ridges are just another form of ridge and do not fall under the brow stalk category. And although the brow ridges can also be moved to signal facial expressions, the ridges are formed just the same as every other ridge and does not protrude out of the face in a pointed manner.

Quick! Quiz Time!

Name the Facial Features on the Sith!

If you answered:
Brow-stalks
Ridges and spurs
Ridges, spurs, and tendrils
Ridges and spurs

Then congrats! You are now a tomato face expert! :3

It’s a miracle
It’s everything you ever wanted
and nothing you believed you'd receive 

She’s standing there
looking at you like you hang the stars in the sky
holding out her hand, asking you to trust her


How does she not realize
that you jumped in head first into her whirlpool a long time ago
that she has your heart and your soul in the palm of her hand


Oh let her be gentle with my cracked heart, you think
Oh, let her sooth my broken soul, you whisper
Let me love her with all of my bruised body, you pray


You are helpless in the face of her glory 
You are hopeless in response to her request 
You are lost when she leaves you and found when she returns
