an extra bit of advice:

-follow up a series of dark/sad themes with a few happier themes
-try not to engage in the violent/depressing themes, but i know sometimes it’s just too hard to resist, so when you just *have* to daydream violence and the like, if it gets too intense for your health, cut off the music, take a little break, put on a happier song even if you don’t feel like listening to one yet
-please turn the volume down, darling
-drink water!! take breaks
-if you cry, it’s okay

i hope this helps!! sorry to the boys, these are mostly directed @ girls cause i’m a girl and so is my parame :// if you’d like to request more themes, drop them in my inbox or leave a comment and i’ll see what i can do for you!!

i should study wtf im doing with my life.

mom im not crazy, they are just too normal to me.

people ask me if i have twitter, i just answer them that i dont know what it is.

i can be tough i can be strong, but with you, it’s not like that at all…

the internet is the best and worst thing to happen in this world.

make your life a story worth teeling.

i tried to put my ex dick as a password but they said it was too short.

its all about money and distance.

am I that easy to forget?

i’m really cool, ask my mom.

everyones getting in relationships and i can’t even find my other sock.

‘you appear just like a dream to me’

my style is expensive and black.

your smile is contagious, no matter how angry or sad I am, all i need is to take one look at your smile and everything seem a little better.

dont get too close, its dark inside.

i don’t like people, so go out, you’re wasting the oxygen.

i’ve never met my idols…

everytime i close my eyes it’s like a dark paradise.

so it’s gonna be forever, or it’s gonna go down in flames.

i want to be cool, but all I do is laying in my bed with coffee, listening to music and watching youtubers.

i want to travel and meet beautiful souls. nobody can destroy my dreams.

QUEEN OF SCOTS, a mix for mary stuart, the doomed queen of scotland who didn’t only wind up losing her crown, but also her head. this mix has been sitting in my 8tracks drafts for over a year now (i made it after the s1 finale) and i’m only posting it now because salma (francisvaloising​) is making me. i’ve made minor edits (like the inclusion of a more recent song, as you’ll see below). it loosely follows mary’s actual life, but still includes some tracks that fit with the reign storyline as well. enjoy!

1. linlithgow palace by paul leonard-morgan [instrumental]
2. scotland by the lumineers (you could never feel my story / it’s all you know)
3. birthright by sleeping at last ft. jon foreman (they made her their queen on the day she was born / placed on her a crown she wasn’t ready for)
4. rabbit heart (raise it up) by florence + the machine (i must become a lion-hearted girl / ready for the fight)
5. queen of scots by amazing blondel [instrumental]
6. below my feet by mumford & sons (and now i sleep / sleep the hours that i can’t weep)
7. dark paradise by lana del rey (loving you forever can’t be wrong / even though you’re not here, i won’t move on)
8. scotland by paul leonard-morgan [instrumental]
9. castle by halsey (and there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s sayin’ / i should probably keep my pretty mouth shut)
10. woman king by iron & wine (someday we may see / a woman king, bloodshot eyes / thumb down and starting to weep)
11. fragile by delta goodrem (sometimes i feel so frail, so small / sometimes i feel vulnerable)
12. landscape by florence + the machine (’cause she’s just like the weather / can’t hold her together)
13. to france by nolwenn leroy (over you shoulder, stories unfold / you’re searching for sanctuary)
14. fotheringay by fairport convention (tomorrow, at this hour, she will be far away / much further than these islands / for the lonely fotheringay) [note: if you’re a big fan of mary, especially of rl!mary, i urge you to listen to this particular song — it is so hauntingly beautiful and sad, a reflection of her very last days on earth)
15. mary, queen of scots by paul leonard-morgan [instrumental]

Lana Del Rey’s songs as LiS ships

I was listening to Lana when I realised that every song of hers can link with ships of Life is Strange.

Ok, yes. This is weird, but I did it. I took the ships I know from this game and put a Lana Del Rey song to each.

If you wanna see my experiment, click bellow but WARNING: there are some unpopular ships in this list so, if you are a dickhead who can’t accept different ways of thinking, dont click it and please block me, okay?

If you know another ship, please tell me :D
