I’ve been playing around with making my own oatcakes (cause a lot of the ones you can buy in stores have been adulterated with wheat and potato starch and
sodium fucking benzoate of all things) and I think I’ve finally hit on the right ratio for savory seasoning, but also I’ve managed to make a sweet version too and oh, oh it’s the first sweet thing I’ve had in weeks and it’s heaven. Crumbly, sweet heaven.
its sleep over time! 2 years ago i had this friend, he thought i was cool cuz i had my first beer at 16, and cuz i told him, he wouldn't stop asking me to bring some to school. i knew it was a stupid idea, but he wouldn't stop asking and i was starting to loose my shit, so one day i brought a metal bottle and gave it too him, i told him there was beer inside, he drank it all and then got "drunk" and then suspended. but he still doesnt know that i put redbull instead of beer in the bottle. sodumb
Oh my goshhh, those nsfw headcannons literally killed me! They were so goodddddd! I was wondering if you had any ideas concerning modern day elorcan ? Like what sort of fashion they would wear and music they would like ? Thankyou so much! Your contributions to this ship are so amazing!
ur the first person ik in my inbox ily speshul treatment 4 u
Modern day Elorcan are v confusing for me tbh bc i feel this weird pressure to try and westernize them as much as possible even if idk anything about America.
Elide is definitely one of the ppl whose outfits look good without trying. Like nothing clashes and its largely simple black pants and a different top but she looks like she walked out of an insta page (u know the ones) but unlike Aelin or Lysandra she doesn’t try out her options and make decisions and accessorize and do all that u feel me she just DOES and it’s the same with shopping i see i like i get and everyone envies her for it.
Lorcan is simple as well, but he mixes and matches his outfits alot so it looks like he’s wearing a new combo when actually he has like what only 8 items of clothing. Rocks the long hair and girls swoon over him and he ties it up to be more practical.
Elide loves wearing his shirts they’re so airy and comfy and she doesn’t even have to wear a bra underneath and its lit (Lorcan loves this as well) and when she just prances around wearing ONLY his shirt a pair of comfy but cute underwear he basically drools everywhere.
They have a cat together. A stray that they fed and groomed to perfection and love to bits. It’s the most hilarious thing to see Lorcan in all his 7 ft glory scowling and scratching a fat cat under its chin. they suit each other perfectly because they sit in a corner and judge everyone its amazing.
Elide loves Adele, Lady Gaga and Sia, she also is Hamilton trash and watching short Elide spit fire is Lorcan’s fav activity. Lorcan has a soundcloud and listens to whatever sounds good honestly like he has no specific preference but his soundcloud is so lit everyone in the gang visits it like omg Lorcan WHERE DO YOU FIND ALL THIS (This is what I’m talking about if u were wondering)
COOKING AT THE ODDEST TIMES IS THEIR SPECIALTY Lorcan fumbles around but manages to make smth really tasty and Elide is mostly into baking and will surprise Lorcan after work with the most delicious things.
Social media ok listen here:
Elide is on Instagram, Snapchat and Tumblr and her insta is filled with aesthetic pics of her books/studies, her cat, baking and cute selfies. Her snapchat is where the real Elorcan action happens bc she’s always on it and recording and taking selfies. On tumblr she follows the fandoms she likes and general aesthetic accounts.
Lorcan is on instagram but its v sparse and has mostly places he visits and foods he eats. There is the occasional Elide here and there and one pic of him and the cadre that has like 1k likes. He’s not on snapchat since he never has the presence of mind to constantly record/snap things irl and post them. But he is the LORD OF TWITTER OK like snarky tweets and short reviews and general commentary + banter with the cadre, its a fun place honestly.
Lorcan has worked at Starbucks (it was a group job with the cadre) and Elide is forever begging him to recreate the drinks from there and he loves her so much he doesn’t tell her that he wasn’t that involved in making the drinks and secretly calls Vaughan every time she pleads.
That’s all i have time for, back to Business Studies :P

In other news while most of you guys got to live blog the events tonight I was at work. And at work I have to damage product out every night. Some jackass put a damaged tv dinner box in the damages bin without throwing its contents away first and that rancid bullshit spilled all over me.
I have a thing where I must always smell good. Needless to say I motherfucked throughout the whole store (literally customers could hear me and I just did NOT care) and then hid in the freezer and cried for a minute as I could smell old alfredo and parmesan all over me.
Don’t date people in hopes of getting over them. If you think you’re ready, you better be damn sure. You better be sure that if your ex texts, calls, begs for you back, you will say no without a doubt. Before ever even considering asking someone to let you in, look at a photo and not have your heart ache. I’ve been guilty of this in the past and I’m so sorry. Thinking I’m over someone and that if I just had someone new, I would move on completely. Its bullshit. Don’t think you are ready, know you are ready. That desire you feel to immediately move on means that you aren’t over it. That jump is not a good jump. No one can help you get over someone, that’s a journey you need to take alone. Because even though it may seem simple or casual to you, you could be the person that allows them to feel for the first time in ages. You could be the person that throws them right back to the bottom, while you go back to something you released. Don’t drag someone along or get their hopes up just because you want to move on. You aren’t ready. You’re being selfish.
How dare you take someone along for the ride while you try to heal? If you are still in love your ex, stop looking for someone to fill the void that you need to fill yourself.
“Do you remember what I said to you when you told me you were a lesbian?” “’Thank god you finally said it’?” “After that.” “…’You better find a girl who deserves you’.” “Yes! That! And this might be so shocking to you, but a murderous vampire isn’t what I had in mind!!”
Carmilla + Favorite Familial Relationship: Laura Hollis+Dad (requested by @bi-dominusrex)
O, would that it be permitted to hold your delicate arms,
fastened around my neck, and to offer kisses to your tender lips.
Go now, darling, and trust your joys to the winds;
trust me, the nature of men is fickle.
Often while I lie awake in the middle of the night, lost in love,
I reflect on these things with myself: many are they whom Fortune has lifted up high;
and in the same way these, suddenly thrown down headlong, she now oppresses:
just as when Venus has unexpectedly joined the bodies of lovers,
daylight divides them, and (they?)…
Milnor, Kristina. “Gender and Genre: The Case of CIL 4. 5296.” In Graffiti and the Literary Landscape in Roman Pompeii. 1st ed. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2014.
(The picture and transcription are taken from this source, p 198 and 209. There is obviously MUCH more scholarship on this, but Milnor is a good starting place.)
I’d recommend looking up Rebecca Benefiel if you want more information specifically about graffiti in domestic spaces.
A beautiful love poem from one woman to another, neatly inscribed on the wall inside a house in Pompeii. There’s much to say about this poem, but I’ll keep it brief! There’s a lot of debate as to whether this was actually written by a woman, to a woman, and scholars sometimes bend over backwards to try to justify another explanation. But I (and many others) argue that it rejects the involvement of men both thematically and grammatically. The speaker does not seem interested in men’s “fickle nature.” The gender of the speaker can be determined by the perdita in line 4: a nominative, feminine perfect passive participle. The gender of the addressee is shown by pupula, a vocative, feminine noun (a diminutive term of endearment, literally meaning “little girl,” but probably more like “darling,” or maybe even “baby”?)
