With considerable caution I say: Life is looking pretty cozy right now. I should have reasonably priced benefits by January, should actually be able to get my meds and see a psychiatrist again! And a dentist, we’ll see how much getting teeth pulled is gonna cost, eesh.
@actualhumansunshine mentioned in their tags that I’d picked the creepy bits of the Closer to the Light video, and that gave me an idea for an even creepier gifset.
I just think this video would make for a great horror movie, in which Niall accepts to stay in this super creepy house off season, and slowly gets consumed by all the dark memories still trapped in those walls. Possibly, he gets possessed by the spirit of one of the old inhabitants. He stops going out, stops answering the phone, he just spends his days walking the dusty hallways and strumming songs he’s never heard on his guitar, trying to understand why they sound so familiar.
When the house staff comes back to prepare everything for the summer, Niall’s not there, nor is there any trace of his ever being here, apart from his guitar, lying on the couch, covered in dust.
I have romantic plans for this weekend out on the Peninsula. I think it’ll go down like this:
ME: In hiking gear, touchingly rosy-cheeked from wandering the wildwood, gaiters, runny nose
HIM: very attractive, maybe naked, playing Hardanger fiddle in a waterfall, hopefully looks like one of the Hemsworth boys
HER: pretty smile, nice singing voice, has tail, lives underground, won’t let me touch the booty for some reason
Aries: powerlessness, losing a sense of their own self, never achieving their goal, losing their flame, being seen/described as incapable and being underestimated, life being dull, plain and grey - and they are a part of it
Taurus: losing what is most important to them (materialistic/security/loved ones), never being able to expand themselves and being stuck on something they don’t want/think they don’t deserve, not reaching a higher level and worries A LOT about the future and how it might look like
Gemini: being ‘caged’ in their own mind, being seen as stupid or of unsound mind, having no real connection to anything and anyone, being scattered and all over the place (internal), being judged for their words/intellect
Cancer: the future, never forgetting past trauma/overcoming sadness, not being able to let go, being used, showing their soft side, showing their real selves and coming out of their shell, having no home
Leo: being exposed to every flaw and insecurety they have, never being able to shine and show their true self, being lost, having no energy/optimism to go on, trusting the wrong ones too easily, not having the life they always wanted/admired
Virgo: being a failure to themselves and anyone else, losing control over their life, not being able to go on anymore, paranoia of everything that could go wrong, exposing themselves too early/easily
Libra: never finding the one, feeling no fulfillment deep within, feeling like a ghost/having no real face, not being satisfied themselves,giving too much, being hurt/forgotten, being completely alone
Scorpio: being hurt/exposed, letting the wrong ones in, (past) trauma, never healing scars, love (loving oneself and being loved), opening up, becoming the demon and the demons of the world/life, losing
Sagittarius: being trapped and caged, never being able to feel life, being exposed to their feelings and showing their caring/loving side, never being able to win (due to running away from their problems), never being truly content
Capricorn: being stuck on lower grounds, always losing, never winning, their hard built up reputation being shattered, losing what’s most important for them, inner conflicts and hidden emotions - not being able to express them and compensate for it,
Aquarius: being the madman and not the genius they wish to be, being lost in the world, an inner standstill, having no one by their side, being alone, being judged for what they are inside, not knowing the answer/being completely hopeless
Pisces: never being able to truly love/be loved, being lost in their own mind/trauma, afraid of being hurt and used, an inner trance that they can not escape, a martyrer that is shamelessly sacrificed and will never be recognized, no understanding for their view/opinions
“Cracker!” The parrot on Victor’s arm squawked loudly and was promptly rewarded with said cracker. She crunched away, holding the treat in one claw as she chipped off pieces with her beak.
“She’s learned it, Yuuri, look!” Victor said excitedly. The siren giggled behind his hand.
Victor held out another, only to have it snatched away by one of the other birds swooping down to settle on his shoulder, the third landing on a nearby perch.
Victor clasped his hands over his ears as the parrots declared their request.
The repeated squawks were deafening.
Yuuri stopped laughing. Victor’s heart-shaped smile dropped off his face entirely, twisting into horror.
“For the love of everyone’s hearing, please teach your children another word,” Chris said, entirely unhelpful as he walked by and shoved more crackers into the parrots’ beaks to shut them up for all of thirty seconds.
