heroic plights

No Place Like Home (listen)

A mix for Alfred F. Jones, a boy who, for better or worse, grew up under fascinating circumstances.

Also for all of us ‘Muricans today oscillating between bitter cynicism and patriotic idealism, and treading the delicate and sometimes painful balance between shame in  our shortcomings and pride in our accomplishments.

America: Sometimes I want to punch you for being such an insensitive doofus, other times hug you and say thanks for being my home, and tell you its gonna be ok, we’ve made it another year. Go fly those fireworks and light those little sparklers. It’s your birthday after all.

Lady Lacie Baskerville – Twenty-eighth of her kind, daughter chosen by the Abyss

Levi stands in the shade near the back of the room, watching with a bemused smile as all the braids in Lacie’s hair slowly became undone during the course of the night. At first, he thinks that the styling hadn’t held, until he catches her pale hands flitter about her head as she undid them between dances. Finally, at the end of the night, she comes to him, rosy and breathless from exertion and her long hair a wavy cape of midnight down her back.

“What kind of lady disregards her appearance so?” he tsks, arching an eyebrow.

“They were done too tight,” she pouts. “I was getting a headache. Besides,” and she grabs both his hands in hers, pulling him out to the center of the room. She spins them around in circles like children at play, her hair a flag unfurling in the breeze of her own momentum. “I may be an adult now, but I’m no lady.”

The second update is now live on FanFiction.net and Archive of Our Own. In these chapters, we start when Levi first meets Oswald and Lacie. Levi attempts to avoid the pitfalls from his own past as he raises them according to his duties. But when he oversteps his boundaries, an unknown hidden force puts his very soul in jeopardy….

All likes, re-blogs, and signal-boosting is awesome and will make us adore you forever!

Duchess Kahina Baskerville – Twenty-sixth of her kind, leader of the Baskervilles.

“I claim first strike,” said the stranger. “Our fight ends with one person living.”

“Harsh terms.” A corner of Glen’s mouth twitched. “Are you sure?”

“Quite. Unless you fear for your life.”

“I fear nothing except for what the Will allows.”

Hi everyone! I know it’s pretty late to be doing a Christmas FF, but the last time I did a follow forever was in August, but I figured I’d do another one since it’s Christmas and everyone’s doing them too (and I just hit 3333 followers and that’s a rad number). I’ve met plenty of fantastic people here, and even more over the course of the past 4 months; graphic makers, roleplayers, artists - you name it. It’s been an amazing year full of tons of surprises, but it would all’ve meant nothing without you guys. Thank you so much for your love and support, and for simply being here. I hope you’ve all had (or are currently having) a very merry Christmas, and I wish you all a prosperous year ahead! Happy holidays! :D

Bolded = friends/mutuals
Italic = I-I’d like to get to know you better :D

……. *cries*

vunderpal said: well i don’t know what you’re gonna do about your url but i think your icon is the perfect one for your state right now. *laughs at you*

haha I was thinking that earlier actually… that was literally me this morning.  I didn’t get out of bed till almost 2 in the afternoon.  Ugh I miss those blanket days with him being all adorable in pjs…. T_T

heroic-plights said: 1 million url suggestions later. I never knew this many variations on the word “plum” existed.

Ugh I know.  They’re all imposters.  I am the only Plum this website needs.


Hello, everyone! It’s been a year since I’ve joined Tumblr, and so much has happened and changed since then. I remember admiring and drooling profusely at the brilliant gifs and edits everywhere (I still do) when I first joined. Tumblr has become another home for me, and it was all thanks to you guys that it happened. You’ve made my time here a magical experience, and I wouldn’t be who I am today if it wasn’t for you all. I’ve included quite a few roleplayers and graphic-makers in this FF too because I spend hours gaping at your masterpieces

Thank you so much for all your love and and support, and for making my dashboard beautiful! I’ve also managed to make quite a few friends here who have helped me throughout my hardships, so thank you ♥

Anyways. Enough of the cheesy talk (although I really want cheese rn). Here’s my second follow forever! I apologize if I spelt any of your URLs wrong, and please don’t be upset if you’re not up here! I love you all and you are all my precious buns. =(^o^)=

Since the year’s coming to an end, I wanted to make a follow forever to celebrate it, and well, I always wanted to make one so hey! I’ve been here for about over a year now, so i felt like making one would be appropriate. Anyways, these last few weeks have been really busy, so this is a bit rushed orz

Bold - friends and mutuals

I’m not the type to be cliché. My original plan was to draw something really special for the 1000+ people who are following me (I still cannot believe it) but time is not with me right now and I apologize so very much for that. I promise when I can snatch some free time I will do that drawing, until then I figured I’d do a follow forever.

I met a lot of amazing people the past 4 years I’ve been on here and so many more in the recent year. I always had such a huge grin when people talked to me about Pandora Hearts or just anything in general. I adore and love all of you and I truly thank those who helped me out through some rough patches. You’re genuine concern and support is always uplifting and special shout out to the incredibly sweet anons that popped up from time to time and gave me astounding compliments. I really which I could meet you and properly thank you.

Alright without further a do, I’m going to start off with the people who got to know me real well over this past year(s) and are just absolutely amazing souls:

potaco, queeenofhurts, m4d-as-a-hatter, cherry-yukai, mi96100theawkwardarcticfoxwolf, sk8rz4lyfe, scissorsandstatice, otaku-eater-3000, lifehascorruptedme, vessaleus, mfrov, nequam–marionette, trashiyama-sama, cushfuddled, skmd247, sethoroth-vermilion

I also wanted to give a huge shout out to lilyginnyblack, wavily, fallensyndicate, and phsecretsanta. You guys have done such amazing things for the ph fandom and I will forever be grateful for all you have done! :3

And now the rest, basically sums up a lot of the ph fandom (I love you all to bits and pieces) and others who spasmodically reblog from me xD Unfortunately, we either have not chatted or it was very little. I hope that can change but its understandable if you wish otherwise. Anyways, cheers to all of you as well for making tumblr a more enjoyable experience. Its always a pleasure to see all of you pop up on my dash x3
