inverted sky

Date a beautiful being that no one can name.

Her skin is an inverted night sky, pale as snow with black stars like freckles covering her head to toe. She giggles when you connect the stars to create pictures.

She has the most beautiful deer horns made of silver, decorated with intricate carvings from long ago. It sends wonderful shivers down her spine when you trace the carvings with your fingers. 

Her hair is as soft as silk, naturally the colors of the deep sea, and adorned with roses that bloom while she is awake. If she allows, you may take a petal and watch as it turns into a beautiful charm. Wear it and her spirit will protect you on your journeys. 

Her eyes are large and black, and if you are deemed worthy, you may look into them and see into her thoughts, watching them fly by like comets. 

Her lips are the color of cherries and when you cannot sleep at night, they will part to sing you a lullaby and they will press against yours for comfort.

Hidden behind the soft cherries of her lips are two pointed canines that she will use to rip the flesh of anyone who has done you wrong.

Her nails are sharp like claws, yet she won’t use them to harm you, but she’d love for you to paint them the colors of the sunset.

A long tail with fur matching the hair on her head comes from her lower back. When you’re scared, she will wrap it around you and you may use it as a shield to protect you from your demons.

Her feet are paws, if you scratch the pads gently, you can hear her purr softly and watch as she drifts into sleep.

She will love you, protect you, kill and die for you, be there for you. But could you do the same for her?

Patema Inverted - Anime Movie Review

This is one disorientating movie! There are two types of people in this movie. Those that have had gravity inverted for them and those that have not. When the worlds of the two people collide through a mysterious hole in the ground which serves as a portal between their two worlds, chaos ensues. Patema is a girl who had heard of the stories about the surface of Earth with its  sky and foliage from her friend Lagos, who mysteriously disappeared. When Patema accidentally falls through the portal, she is saved from floating away into the sky by Age, a boy from the city of Aiga that has his feet planted firmly on the earth. The bond that forms between the two causes them to fly through the sky for each other. Their dependency on each other to stay grounded is what creates a really subtle, yet present theme of romance that is embedded in the story perfectly.


I did not go into this film expecting as much back and forth between the two worlds. I must say, for those people that don’t have amazing spatial awareness and are prone to getting lost, this film is not entirely easy to watch and does strain your brain. An ancient hatred by the people of Aiga about the ‘inverted’ creates a tension within the film as the tyrannical leaders trying to uphold the utopian society in Aiga brainwash all the children to believe that those that had gravity inverted and floated into the sky were sinners and only the pure people of Aiga got left into the Earth. Age is different though. His father had always wanted to uncover the secrets of the sky by building a hot air balloon, yet he died prematurely by an accident whilst trying to float away, leaving Age to dream on his behalf. Patema could not have encountered a more appropriate person after falling through the portal. Their relationship is cute and there is one particularly hilarious scene in which Patema is insistently pestering Age about coming back and not leaving her forever in a shed. Patema and Age literally have to cling to each other whenever they’re trying to make their way around Earth. The romance did feel a far fetched to develop so easily. I much prefer to interpret is a friendly devotion that developed between the two because they were both enchanted by each other and each other’s worlds.


So back to the plot: the main conflict is uncovering the secrets behind the people of Aiga and Patema’s people. Where Patema’s people think of the people of Aiga as ‘bat people’ whenever they enter their underground world, the people of Aiga are unaware about the location of Patema’s people. Their focus is on maintaining law and order to uphold their perceived utopian (but in reality dystopian society). Though the people of Aiga wish to flush out the inverted ‘sinners,’ there are mysteries which the leaders of the city are going to great lengths to hide. Mysteries that are uncovered by the bond that develops between Aiga and Patema. I must say the plot twist is quite mind boggling and I really did not see it coming. Some plot holes regarding Patema and Age’s journey into the perceived city of ‘stars’ did quite irritate me because I was wondering why it was so uninhabited, but all in all, it was quite a cool concept that was fun to watch!


The feel of the movie is mostly serious and mysterious, yet there are moments of suspense and also little moments of light hearted relief, like when Porta and Age are trying to make their way around a location, using their gravity powers to avoid being seen by a camera.

The character design was simple, yet I really found myself loving the clothing that Patema and the ‘Inverted’ people were wearing. The backdrops of the movie are simply stunning. From the glimmering lights to the gorgeous cloudy, space-like atmosphere that Patema and Age traverse through when they are floating through space, it is extremely gorgeous!

I didn’t find myself to be a fan of the soundtrack as I personally felt that sometimes the music was not fitting of what was going on, on the screen. The music did not capture me and help with the immersion, as say some of the Studio Ghibli films of the past have.


All in all, the other character of note is the main villain, the evil leader of Aiga who is really against the Inverted people and wants to see them gone, no matter the cost. He does play a fair villain, fit with the crazy gene of wanting the ‘inverted’ people to be dependent on him so that he gets to amplify his own sense of power. When his secrets are revealed it’s oh so satisfying and that’s exactly what made this such a nice sci-if mystery.


With Patema Inverted, I came for the romance but stayed for the intriguing and well-developed plot and stunning imagery. Go check out this cool (but dizzying!) film for yourself. Be prepared to go up and down and up and down…just remember, it all depends on perspective anyway!

House Lefford, Lords of the Golden Tooth, sworn to Lannister

House Lefford is one of the chief noble houses from the westerlands, and a staunch supporter of House Lannister. Their seat is at the Golden Tooth which controls the main entrance to the westerlands from the east. House Lefford blazons its arms with a golden inverted pile on sky blue, a sun left in the sky.

House Lefford was formed by the union of an Andal warlord with a noblewoman of the First Men. The Leffords presumably received the Golden Tooth when Cerion Lannister, the King of the Rock, conquered the area. The Golden Tooth guards the one large pass through the mountains that allows direct travel between the westerlands and the riverlands to the east, so the Lannister army was taken unawares when Robb Starks direwolf Greywind finds a secret pathway through the mountains and is able to attack the Westerlands. Robb descended upon Stafford Lannister’s host, annihilating them at Oxcross, three days ride from Lannisport. 

A PICTURE OF THE GIRL, WHO I LOVE

not terror stricken, not ambushed
the car left in the water to rust

pushing ourselves to the next
dangerous note, high river, warble

i saw you & it was enough.

an inverted sky of birds, stomach
seizing, hair long like a noose

Aurora and Milky Way in a little sky

Stepping stones seem to lead to the Milky Way as it stretches across this little sky. Of course, the scene is really the northern hemisphere’s autumnal equinox night. Water and sky are inverted by a top to bottom, around the horizon stereographic projection centered on the zenith above Lake Storsjön in Jämtland, Sweden. In the north the Milky Way arcs from east to west overhead as fall begins, but the season is also a good time for viewing aurora. Geomagnetic storms increase in frequency near the equinox and produce remarkable displays of northern lights at high latitudes, like the eerie greenish glow reflected in this watery cosmos.
