“I once had a thousand desires. But in my one desire to know you all else melted away.”

Star light, star bright,

first star I see tonight,

I wish I may, I wish I might,

have this wish I wish tonight

Some stars that fall are just that, a star. But sometimes they are just a little more and their hearts can grant your greatest desire…

I am pleased and terrified to share with you all my newest story. It will feature Brienne, Jaime, Arthur and Tyrion on an adventure throughout Westeros. It’s posted under my Ao3 author name LuxinTenebris and is named Star Light, Star Bright.

The Influence of Ray Harryhausen on Horror:

In 2013, the world lost one of the most influential visual effects creators of all time.  Ray Harryhausen perfected a method of stop motion known as “Dynamation”, which he used in various landmark films, such as Mighty Joe Young (1949), The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958), and Jason and the Argonauts (1963), as seen above.

His work has inspired many animators over the years, and provided the impetus for stop motion animation to be used to create entire feature-length films, such as Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), right up to the works of Laika, LLC., who produced 2009’s Coraline, as well as the upcoming Box Trolls (2014). 

His influence has also spurred on numerous homages in films from nearly every genre, including horror.  In 1987, Freddy Krueger returned to theaters and nightmares the world over in A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors.  In a clear nod to the skeletal warriors from Jason and the Argonauts, Freddy’s spirit briefly inhabits his mortal remains in an effort to keep them from being properly buried, and thus put to rest.  In 1992, director Sam Raimi would make an even more obvious reference to the same warriors in his horror/fantasy epic, Army of Darkness.

“I think all of us who are practioners in the arts of science fiction and fantasy movies now all feel that we’re standing on the shoulders of a giant.  If not for Ray’s contribution to the collective dreamscape, we wouldn’t be who we are.”
- James Cameron

Hunger ~ Eva finally gets her Joseph, Dreaming of Joseph Lees (1999)

92 minutes of repressed desire (and on my part, unreasonable anger) punctuated by abject sexual frustration whenever Rupert Graves would periodically grace the screen with his presence. Her need is palpable throughout, but Morton does a great job of just going for it and for him in particular ;)

reblog or link, please; no reposts to other sites, thank you

Happy 1st Birthday, #Silver Fox Saturday

Yay! But also omg Sans please be careful *sobs*

don’t worry, sans and the grim reaper are friends! they met a while back when sans accidentally, uh, “summoned” grim while testing a ghost goo serum on a coworker (a ghost goo serum turns whoever drinks it temporarily into a ghost; a tainted ghost goo serum, however, makes the grim reaper turn up and bitch slap whoever drank the serum) and sans seized the opportunity to make a new friend.
