My bus route is so nice

Candy Apple Girl Charm Bottle
a spell based on the song “Nightlife” by Green Day, aiming to sweeten someone’s feelings for you

What You Need:
♥ Red/Pink Candle (optional)
♥ A Small Jar
♥ Cinnamon
♥ Vanilla (I used vanilla extract)
♥ Pink & Red Glitter
♥ Piece of Paper
♥ Red & Pink Pens/Colored Pencils/Paint/etc.
♥ Rose Quartz

What You Do:
♥ If you’re using a candle, light it. Try to channel its energy into your materials as you work.
♥ Take the slip of paper and draw a candy apple. Color it with the red and pink pens, and on it write the name of the person whose feelings you aim to “sweeten” (or the person you want to *ahem* “explore your vocal chord” ;)))).
*If you don’t have a special someone in mind, you could write a trait you want to have in a significant other instead!
♥ Drip a few drops of vanilla onto the paper and let it soak in.
♥ Put the paper in the bottle.
♥ Sprinkle in the cinnamon (love), pink glitter (love), and red glitter (lust/passion).
♥ Seal the bottle with the red/pink candle wax, give it a kiss, and charge it beside the rose quartz in the light of the full moon.
*or if your impatient like me, on a Friday.
♥ You can carry the bottle with you, wear it as a necklace, or just sit it somewhere (I sat mine by my rose quartz clusters ✨)

*bonus points if you play and sing along to the song while performing the spell!

And there you go! Go get your Candy Apple Girl.

So in elementary I took the bus to and from school. We were horrible little gremlins. The school year wasn't even half way done and we went through seven *SEVEN* bus drivers. School resorted to hiring someone who used to serve in the army. We broke her too.

My bus route was voted the easiest because none of us talk to each other

rip me, 2016

cause of death: this poor boy who-deserved-so-much-better’s tragic backstory

just had the wonderfully surreal moment of smoking a joint with some random dude on a bike through my garden fence at 1.30am

(Claremont anon) LA is totally weird and scary. I'm venturing in to the city alone for the first time on Thursday and I have been planning my bus route for a week. I don't want to get lost in LA and its organized weirdly, its not like SF (where i grew up) which is small or NYC which is built on a grid but is too fucking big

i hate cities that aren’t planned on a grid/are planned weirdly oh my god i was in DC the other day and the weird intersecting streets that go at diagonals… dont do this … be normal pplease

anonymous asked:

Will there be any local signings/readings for That Inevitable Victorian Thing? I couldn't make it to the IPM as the bus routes my mom recommended no longer exist.

I’m not sure where “local” is, but I’m going to be Indigo North London on October 14 at 2, and I’ll be in Kitchener in December.

omg i forgot to tell y'all but after like seven years of never seeing the vampire werepanther from my eighth grade bus route i actually saw her again like a month ago in the mcdonald’s drive-thru but i don’t think she recognized me and i didn’t say anything because like. nothing i could say about it would fit in a drive-thru but there is an official confirmation now that she still exists so. that’s cool

i like A boy but i think he is scared of me or thinks i hate him how do i interact with people without coming off as that . he is on. my bus route and makes me Nervous

Okay so I saw a gif set of Usagi seeing everyone going about their normal lives in the R episode and being so happy they’re doing okay

and I was thinking- what if the other Senshi’s memories had stayed lost and Usagi had to go it on her own for a very long time.

Like, Usagi is SO INSISTENT on these girls being able to live normal lives. She is TERRIFIED of the thought of seeing them die again. So she would do her utmost to keep going on her own. 

I think Usagi would make an effort to keep a distance from them at first, not even wanting to interact with them as a civilian because she’s afraid of triggering the memories and also it’s too hard (and occasionally painful) for her to keep track of what they no longer remember- but she wouldn’t be able to help herself with Ami after a while. Ami, all alone and friendless, only ever studying, all the other kids constantly gossiping about her. The pain shows on Ami’s face. Usagi wouldn’t be able to take it, so she’d just sit beside Ami at lunch one day and rekindle the friendship. She’d be messing up and constantly referencing memories Ami doesn’t have any more and freaking out, but Ami would put that down to her being silly.

Mako, it’s possible it would be the same for Usagi- she wouldn’t be able to handle Mako being on her own. I think she’d be able to hold out longer than with Ami, because Mako seems so tough and able to take it, but eventually she wouldn’t be able to stand Mako eating her cute lunch all by herself and she’d drag Ami over and they’d talk to her. It’s also possible Mako might end up saving Usagi from bullies, a ball coming in her direction, a car, whatever, and that would be their opening.

Rei would be a harder re-connection because they don’t go to the same school, but I can see Usagi having to go to the shrine for some reason. Or maybe Ami says “hey wanna check out this hot girl on my bus route” and Usagi’s like “HELL YEAH” and SHIT IT’S REI, AMI DOESN’T REMEMBER HER. (It can be canon in the 90’s anime too!)  It will be really hard for Usagi to be friends with a Rei that doesn’t remember her. She’ll want to slip into their bickering and forget that Rei doesn’t remember how close they are.

 On the other hand, Rei might adjust quicker to Usagi now that she’s slightly more mature and Usagi will understand how Rei works from the beginning rather than it being bumpy, so maybe that will balance out. 

This will also be a Usagi constantly on the brink of exhaustion (we’ll get to that) so that will intrigue Rei, the fact that this girl is working herself to death over something- if there’s anything Rei admires, it’s work ethic. And maybe some protective instincts (that she doesn’t understand why she has) will be awakened by that and make her want to be with Usagi more.

Usagi runs into Minako at the arcade. Minako’s weirdly drawn to the Sailor V game, so she comes over when Usagi’s playing it and gives her tips (aka tells her loudly how she’s doing it wrong) and Usagi can’t bring herself to brush Minako off, so they end up striking up a comradery.

Now I’m going to take this to DRAMALAND, because I want to-

But meanwhile, Usagi’s facing all the new threats on her own. That isn’t the greatest setup for Usagi, who functions best in a team environment, but she’d be determined. Every day seeing her friends able to be normal, intact, safe, would strengthen her resolve not to involve them. Every night when she dreams of their deaths again would strengthen it. She’d be determined to get stronger, to fight alone, for their sake.

But there’s another complication here- Usagi’s psychological issues/trauma from what happened mean her powers aren’t working great either. Like it did in early R, her tiara might stop working. And this time, she doesn’t have her friends to motivate her to do a power-up.

Presumably Moonlight Knight would be there to help too, but let’s face it, as her only back up he’s not gonna be much help- literally he’s a figment of Mamoru’s imagination, he might end up vanishing early on if captured or something and Usagi’s on her own.

However, I think Usagi would still be able to get through that, with something else to motivate her- the VOTW, Moonlight Knight, Luna, or Artemis being threatened- and her powers would kick back in. But it’s not going to be enough to level her up, and especially not permanently- she’s in too much despair without having her friend’s fighting with her. Usagi fights best when she has people with her, when she has the feeling of people having her back, when she has the motivation of friends she needs to help and protect- Usagi gets her strength from her friends. Without them, she’s not doing well.

Her powers will basically come and go, fading out until she’s on the brink of death or someone is threatened really badly and then kicking back in again. Which means Usagi’s going to only barely survive every fight and she’s going to be in bad shape afterwards.

She’ll be coming the school with really noticable (and sometimes serious) injuries that she’ll excuse as a result of her clumsiness. There’s no way her friends won’t notice of course, there’s no way the girls won’t notice she’s struggling. But for this one thing in her life alone, Usagi will keep her mouth shut. Usagi will deflect, Usagi will lie as best Usagi can (badly) and Usagi will put on a cheerful face so hard, she’ll smile at all costs, do everything so as not to make them worry. But they will worry. 

Mako will worry as sees Usagi stumbling on her walk to school with a sprained ankle. She’ll insist on piggybacking Usagi to school and despair as Usagi answers her interrogation with obvious lies. She’ll stick by Usagi’s side every second, be cooking her things constantly, applying all the first aid she can- trying so hard to protect and heal her, but she can’t protect her from whatever she’s doing to herself.

Ami will worry when she sees Usagi sleeping through lunch- LUNCH of all things!-and fret at Usagi’s strained laugh when she’s woken up, fret as Usagi eats her food with a lot less enthusiasm than she used to. Ami will find herself practically doing Usagi’s homework, something she’d never do in any other circumstances, but it’s all she can do to help Usagi here. 

Rei will get increasingly angrier at each new injury, each sign Usagi is struggling, each pathetic lie Usagi tells. She’ll be screaming at Usagi for much deeper reasons than she usually does, she’ll be on the verge of tears, for the first time in her life, Rei will be frustrated at someone for refusing to ask for help, for trying to deal with things on her own (Rei will not see the irony.) 

Minako will not be direct about it, unlike Rei, She’ll try to trick Usagi into telling. She’ll be constantly trying to unravel Usagi, get her to spill. Surprise attacks, all the time, and she’s flabbergasted Usagi can stubbornly evade them. This girl can’t outmaneuver a tortoise about most things, but she’s outmaneuvering Minako on this?

Luna and Artemis are BEGGING, PLEADING, for her to let them awaken the others again. But Usagi is so stubborn about this. She even tells Luna she’ll never forgive her if she does. Usagi throws back all the things Luna ever nagged her about in her face. “You said I needed to take responsibility. You said I needed to figure out how to make it on my own. Well, I’m doing it”. Luna is beside herself. Luna never wanted Usagi to take responsibility for things like this.

  But Usagi won’t give in, she would never willingly have her friends go back to this life, especially now that it’s become nothing but pain and horror to her.  She comforts herself with the thought of how proud of her they’d be, especially Rei. She comforts herself with seeing the peace on their faces.

Provided Luna doesn’t crack first (and let’s say she doesn’t) (if she does, Usagi was totally bluffing about not forgiving her, obviously, like Usagi could ever not forgive someone), it would all come to an end when the girls decide together they’re going to follow Usagi until they find out what’s going on with her, stick to her like glue- she tries to lose them, but can’t. 

Whether they see her transform or not, they see Sailor Moon fighting, they see Sailor Moon fall to the ground, exhausted, injured, near death, and they rush in and protect her as civilians, attacking the monster. Partial memories unlock in their heads. Luna comes and unlocks everything. The girls finish the monster, they take Usagi home, they feed her and hug her and give her first aid, and they tell her they’re proud but also tell her NEVER DO IT AGAIN. They’re going to be there for her whether she likes it or not, it’s their destiny, and she has to accept it.

anecdote #1 In the 90’s a truck full of tropical Quaker Parrots was en route to the Bronx Zoo. As the story goes, it took a nose dive on Hutchinson River Pkwy and released it’s captives into the New York air. Nobody expected the little green babies to survive, but they battled the harsh winter and flocks of them still live in the stadium pole lights of the Bronx today.

anecdote #2 There’s a sign off the side of the John F. Kennedy bridge that I’d pass on my bus route from the city back to Throgs Neck. I always found it rather eerie. Those neon red letters up against the evening sky with its unwanted yet prime advertising space. somethin spooky.

Made this little project in six evenings for a class.
