I’m proud of who I am No more monsters, I can breathe again And you said that I was done Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come ‘Cause I can make it on my own And I don’t need you, I found a strength I’ve never known I’ll bring thunder, I’ll bring rain, oh When I’m finished, they won’t even know your name
You brought the flames and you put me through hell. I had to learn how to fight for myself And we both know all the truth I could tell I’ll just say this is “I wish you farewell”.
I hope you’re somewhere prayin’, prayin’ I hope your soul is changin’, changin’ I hope you find your peace Falling on your knees, prayin’.
Ok but I hate it when people say ‘new artist’ about Kesha now ? She had serious, heart-wrenching songs before - they just weren’t popular. Songs like Animal, Dancing With Tears in My Eyes, Hungover, Past Lives, The Harold Song, Blind, etc.
I got inspiration from Kesha’s new song Praying (Hence the two gifs). There will be mentions of abuse, so please be careful while reading this.
Remember, I don’t own the gifs, only the title card.
I stumbled back, knocking a small beaker off of a cart in my scramble.
Joe raised his weapon, Barry and Wally tensed, and I watched Cisco pull on his glove.
“Hey there toots. Didn’t expect to find you here?”
The man before me smirked, ruffling a hand through his hair. He took a step closer, backing me against one of the ribbed walls of the cortex.
Flashes of hateful words and raised fists scattered through my brain. I desperately wanted to duck behind one of my friends, but putting them in that position would not be smart.
“W-what do you want Alex?” I snarled softly, lowering my head as to not meet his glowing eyes.
“Well,” He began, wrapping a hand around my throat and raising my head, “I came to get whats mine.”
All i could do was squeak in terror as his grip tightened around my throat, forcing my eyes to glisten into his. (E/C) on red, I wanted to be so small. Wanted to slip out of his grasp.
I thought I had escaped this mess when I met the team. When Cisco took me in. When we started to save the city.
I was finally getting my life together. I finally felt strong again.
Then this teleporting monster had to find me.
“Who ever said she was yours?” Cisco snapped, stepping from the group to raise his hand and aim towards the man towering over me.
Alex threw me to the ground, leaving me to try and gain my air and strength, turning to Cisco.
“Stay out of this kid. You don’t want to get on my bad side.” I watched Alex’s hand emit a soft red glow, and my fears kicked me in he ass.
I had watched this man teleport the hearts out of many men. Kill them instantly.
This was what he was going to do to Cisco.
The first man who showed me kindness after I escaped Alex. The monster was gonna murder him.
“He’s not your enemy Alex. Your quarrel is with me.” I said, willing my voice not to shake. I pulled myself to my feet, leaning heavily on the desk next to me.
Alex turned to me, snapping one of his fingers, causing me to flinch.
I used to drop to my knees whenever he snapped.
How could I now though?
“Your quarrel is with me.” I said a little harsher, flicking my head threateningly. My (H/C) hair fell over one of my eyes as I brought a hand up to rub my neck.
“(Y/N), no, go with Joe, HR, and Iris.” Cisco said, trying to turn Alex’s attention back to him before something happened.
“Listen to the lady.” Alex chuckled, before turning and raising his hand towards me. I felt my heart shift in my chest.
The horror that should have ripped through me would have frozen me to my spot. That all changed when the world around me slowed, halting. I side stepped, the grip on my heart fading.
I moved across the quiet room swiftly, picking up one of Cisco’s guns, cocking it in my hands. I moved back to Alex’s still frame, placing the barrel against his head.
Whatever this power I had somehow gained was, I thank it for coursing through my veins at that moment.
The world sped up once more, and I watched as Alex crushed his fingers against his palm, but to find me no where in sight.
“You brought the flames and you put me through hell. I had to learn how to fight for myself!” I snapped, tightening my finger around the trigger. Alex stiffened for once in his life, as i continued to scream in his ear.
“And we both know all the truth I could tell. I’ll just say this is ‘I wish you farewell’! You get what you give!”
“(Y/N) don’t! If you kill him you’re no better than he is.” Cisco called, following my movements slowly until he was able to knock the gun out of my hand and cuff the meta standing in the middle of the room.
The shock at what I was about to do finally set in. I pulled some meta powers out of my ass, and I was gonna kill him. I was going to obliterate his skull.
Tears streamed down my face as Barry, Wally, and Cisco dragged Alex to the pipeline.
Even then, before he could turn the corner, Cisco shot me a nod of approval.
I just finished listening to Kesha’s album Rainbow. I don’t really think I can really accurately describe how amazing it is. I know a lot of you may think that I’m just another crazy fan but Kesha actually saved my life. When she first came onto the scene I was in high school. I was struggling with severe depression, suicidal thoughts, an eating disorder, and I hated every inch of my soul because of my attraction to boys. Her music is the only thing that made me happy and made me accept myself for who I am. If it weren’t for her, I honestly would not be here. I hope some day I actually get the chance to meet her and thank her for everything she has done for me. This album really means the world to me.
been a kesha fan since the beginning, and it feels so good to see her making music that is HERS. no one can control her anymore and i am so proud of what she’s done. she’s an amazing human being with an amazing soul and this comeback is the best thing that’s happened in a long time.
I remember reading a post of yours where you said that Harley would totally be a Kesha fan and now I wonder how you think she'd respond to Kesha's "Praying".
I actually saw @hvrleyquinn talking about the song and I was like “Hm let me listen to it” and IMMEDIATELY I was like “This song SCREAMS Harley.”
The song means a lot to me as an abuse survivor who is starting to accept that my abusers were wrong and that I didn’t deserve any of it. I think Harley would receive it in a similar way. Especially as someone who would have liked “old Kesha” as well too. Like Harley is down with both ends of the spectrum here so I think it’d mean that much more to her. Like, I said she would be a Kesha fan long, long before this song came out and I feel even more confidently about that now.
I was actually planning on making an AMV for Harley and the song because like, it’s just so her. (And also I love projecting myself onto her lol oops).
I’m a massive Kesha fan and her music has helped me through a lot over the years so the fact that she is FINALLY free to release music again makes me so insanely happy. I legit get goosebumps every time I watch the music video for Praying. Here’s my cover of Kesha’s latest masterpiece.
I think I’m gonna start posting youtube video semi regularly so if ya wanna go like and subscribe that’d be pretty cool ;)
