memento*

Really loving this badass mani! That rather charming purple holographic is @picturepolish Desire. The stud and cross decal are from @bornprettystore with Cirque Memento Mori.

She's using the shoelace to tie her hair back. And why she carries it and her swan necklace is to represent her two lost loves, Graham and Neal. It doesn't mean she doesn't love Killian, it's not either one or the other.

I just looked at the HQ photo and I don’t think it’s the shoelace. Graham’s shoelace is darker. And it’s WAY too long to use to tie her hair back. That’s why she ties it on her wrist in Storybrooke.

Emma wasn’t in love with Graham IMO. It was a “what if” kind of thing. She lost him, it was tragic. And she doesn’t wear the swan necklace anymore either. Just the circle necklace. She said she loved Walsh too but doesn’t have a memento of him. I’m not saying Graham wasn’t important, but he’s simply NOT on Killian’s level.

Losing myself in endless montages of bedsheets
And foreign pheromones
Lit by disregarded movie scenes
And filthy laptop screens
Trying to translate transcriptions buried beneath your tongue
I peel mementos from your back
Trace every boy’s vertebrate like I retrace my steps
And scratch my name into their arms
Confirmation of my existence
A declaration of my presence
I don’t ask to be remembered
Just to be seen
I bend into shapes that don’t reek of depression
Writhe into all the words I’m too afraid to write
I am a wishbone begging to be broken
An unlocked room
Door creaking in the breeze
Take me
And break me
I am a hurricane
And the city being destroyed
A natural disaster of unnatural proportions
Both the detective and the crime scene
The culprit and the victim
Performing open heart surgery in musty bedrooms
Donating all the organs I can’t live without
Fugitive curls abandoned in bedsheets
The only affirmation
That I am even real

“Memory can change the shape of a room; it can change the color of a car. And memories can be distorted. They’re just an interpretation, they’re not a record, and they’re irrelevant if you have the facts.” - Memento (2000)

“I have to believe in a world outside my own mind. I have to believe that my actions still have meaning, even if I can’t remember them. I have to believe that when my eyes are closed, the world’s still there”

Memento (2000) dir. Christopher Nolan
