north carolina gothic

the capital is called the city of the oaks. you’ve only ever seen pine trees

the forecast says scattered thunderstorms this afternoon. the forecast is always thunderstorms. when are they coming?

I-40 is backed up. it is always backed up. you’re not sure how long you’ve been stuck in traffic but you’re sure your hair’s gotten longer

there is a seagull on your car despite the ocean being several hundred miles away. you don’t know where it came from. you don’t know where it’s going. maybe it’s always been here

So Some Stuff Happened While You Were Gone

It was strange to come home.

Except it wasn’t home anymore. Somewhere in the intervening years of grinding through undergrad and graduate coursework, the house Jazz grew up in had stopped being home.

Danielle had been given Jazz’s room when she left halfway across the country to Yale. During holiday visits they would share, Dani insisting that all her time “camping out” under overpasses and old mausoleums as proper precedent for her to sleep on the floor.

A few times Jazz caught herself thinking of it as her room, instead of Danielle’s. She could still recognize the room she’d stayed in for seventeen years, an old imprint she felt in the air, pins and needles in her scalp; her hands itched with the impression that if they just peeled away the sci-fi posters and anime wall-scrolls and the global Polaroid collage the old room would still be there, waiting beneath like a layer of wallpaper.

Tagged by @amehanaaa to do this aesthetic thing. Conveniently, I have a ton of fandom stuff saved on my phone lmao

Also these are all saved from various talented artists on tumblr THESE DO NOT BELONG TO ME. Except the bento box. That’s mine hehehe

Tagging @roses-and-asters @that-one-ninja-fan @thefourteenthdarkone @bloodredruby @watchmist1412 @strivia @pineappland and anyone else who wants to do this.

I was surprised by this wonderful drawing yesterday. Shu, Skir, Res, and Raven all pitched in and commissioned this beautiful art of Calico wearing a dress from the very talented Ruderubicante. It’s absolutely gorgeous, and the colors are so warm! This is the very essence of Calico, and I love it dearly. <3 Thanks so much you guys. *hugs* <3

Secret Santa

The Mikaelsons + their partners + Caroline’s friends experience with Secret Santa. 25 Days of Klaroline - Day 25: klaroline + christmas (the last day, I’m so sad)
A/N: I’m not sure if everyone does Secret Santa like this, but this is the way I’ve always done it, with the guessing thing and all that.
Anyway, Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays everyone!

Caroline loved Klaus.

She truly, honestly did.

But if he didn’t stop ruining Christmas mood soon, they were going to be having a problem.

“Do we really have to do Secret Santa?”

“Yes, Klaus. You’ll just have to buy something nice to one of your siblings. Or me.”

“Or one of your friends.” He reminded her and she rolled her eyes.

“And you can’t buy them gifts?”

“Technically, I can buy pretty much whatever I want, love, but the point is, I don’t want to.”

She gave him an annoyed look. “Well, I’m sorry, Klaus, but the thing is… I want you to.”

Klaus sighed, knowing that she knew he’d do it to make her happy “Fine. But I hope you realize that this is going to end in disaster, Caroline. Too many former enemies in one room and all that.”

“I’ll make everyone behave.” She said, determinately.

Klaus thought that if anyone could make that work, it’d be her.

once there was this guy i went to high school with who was really lovely actor and choreographer type (i still remember some of his choreography from when he choreographed show choir) and all of us were like “you are going to work on Broadway before anyone else from our school does,” and he went off to college and i kept in contact with him because i wanted to go to the same college and then i got in and he came to see my senior show and said he was transferring into the same program i was entering.

then we were in the same program and he T.A’d one of my classes and all the people who i started to gravitate to were also the people he started to gravitate to and then eventually we had both graduated and were eventually working in many of the same circles (he found himself in some fancier ones that i was not interested in) and i’ve done shows with him and generally kept up/occasionally run into him in bars and chat

and tonight though it’s not his broadway debut because he assistant directed before, it’s his broadway debut as a choreographer as a show of his opens and i am just so goddamn proud of him.
