my mind is like a spaceship

2

“I always wanted to think that I was an alien. I used to think when I was young that I was adopted by my mother, because they found me in a spaceship… And every night I used to talk to my real parents or my real family in the skies. I knew that there were thousands of other alien babies dropped off and they’re all over the place, and I’ve met quite a few of them. It’s just something that I’ve always liked to toy with in my mind, it was really fun to pretend that, you know, there was some special reason for me to be here, and I feel really homesick all the time… And so do the other aliens, and I only have the chance to come across, like, a handful of other aliens throughout the rest of my life.”

The Return: Landing

SO THE WANTED ONE HOUR SPECIAL, HUH?

Anyway, I am absolutely dying to see how they’re gonna continue on from this, and I’m gonna fic it, because I don’t have enough WIPs already. This one’s gonna be in little vignettes when I get inspiration, and it’s gonna be focused on Lars and Sadie. 

Over the course of the series, expect angst, fluff, hurt/comfort, larsadie, and HECKA SPOILERS FOR STEVEN UNIVERSE’S ‘WANTED’ SPECIAL EVENT

This fic is mostly the first of those.

Psychosis Day 59

Give me the sky,
and let me dance
With the stars,
And if I kiss the sun
It’s because Tommorow
Wasn’t fast enough
And I just wanted to see you.

Give me the moon,
And let me dance
With a comet,
And if I paint the universe
Blue, it’s because you’re
Always on my mind,
And you’re the only colour I know.

Give me the heart,
And we’ll dance
Like when we were kids,
And hope was more than a dream,
And you were more than a
Constellation.

~deAngelo // Your eyes, or the spaceship in my back pocket. Something please take me back.

Some people have minds like spaceships or jet planes, and nothing can keep them from soaring into unexplored regions. I was equipped for heights, and I would be betraying my gifts to become a reptile and crawl along my much-despised earth.

Altitude. Immediately I feel free. Whereas when I try to land, I can only write bitter and rebellious things. Oh, Anaïs, how you have almost succumbed to the weight of the earth.

I always want to think I was an alien, I used to think when I was young, that I was adopted by my mother because they found me in a spaceship and they let me out, and I was from a different planet. I wanted to be from a different planet really bad. Every night I would talk to my real parents and my real family in the skies. I knew that there were thousands of alien babies dropped off all over the place and I have met quite a few of them. It’s just something that I’ve always liked to toy with in my mind. It’s really fun to pretend that ya know, there is some special reason for me to be here and I feel really homesick all the time and so do the other aliens. And I only have a chance to come across a handful of other aliens the rest of my life… eventually one day well find out what we’re supposed to do.

Spaceship

I have Pluto in my mind
And Mars in my eyes.
Jupiter strengthens my voice
And steadies my mouth.
Venus pulses through my torso
And up through my chest.
Uranus flows through
My wide open arms.
Mercury fuels my legs
Towards mischief and adventure.
Earth supports me in my feet;
And though my home is
Forever embedded into my soles,
“This plant feels like a
Hopeless place.”
“There’s too much hate,
Too much hurt
For [my] heart.”

“I’m waiting for my
Spaceship
To come back for me.”
A spaceship forged
By Neptune and powered
By Saturn’s rings,
Waiting for a supernova
Within the galaxies in
The back of my mind
To propel it forward
Into flight.

I have the universe
Charging through this vessel
Made by “recycled stardust
And borrowed energy:”
An electricity
Coursing through my veins,
Beating from
My healing heart.

“I’m waiting for
My spaceship
To come back for me.”
No matter how
Tumultuous the ride,
I am ready to find my place
In the stars.

*quoted phrases from Kesha’s Spaceship.

I always associate Ray Bradbury with like summer nights and sitting quietly on a porch and halloween and just generally pleasant things because those stories are the ones that stay in my mind but also the dude has no hesitation when it comes to cold horror like he’ll set lions onto a couple of parents or slaughter the entire crew of a spaceship while they sleep in their beds all in the name of a twist the man is ruthless.

Hey Linkara! ...Okay what is going on? I mean... I just found out story stuff happens after the credits, and we got a spaceship, some kind of thief woman, and then you're being spied on by Evil Scientist You, Al Capone impersonator you, and Robo McCupsforArms. I mean.... WAT.

Oh me oh my, you’re JUST finding out about the storyline? Well… crap, you’ve got some catching up to do.  XD

Here are three ways of doing so:

-Youtube storyline playlist (mind you, some videos are included because they reference the first appearance of an OBJECT or the like that’s storyline relevant, but may not contain stuff after the credits): https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLxCy3y2-ZD2EiY2ayTMg4vOwmcmbVVY1y

-The AT4W Plotline Tumblr, which summarizes the plot-relevant elements in every episode featuring them (and dividing them into each story arc, as you can see on the side): http://at4wplotguide.tumblr.com/

-AT4W episodes on my site with storyline stuff are tagged and have a little symbol in the upper-right corner of the thumbnail/title card! http://atopthefourthwall.com/category/storyline/

Also, the movie DVD has a humorous recap of the storyline up to the movie, so that’s an option as well.  =)

Notes:
Hey y'all!!!

Okay, so, normally, this fanfic was supposed to be a cute, funny, and ridiculous 2000-word one-shot, but when I was outlining it my mind got ahead of itself and added scene after scene, aaaaaand it ended up being slightly angsty and serious real fast. And 9000 words, let’s not forget that lol :)

Anyway, I hope you like this!

The Artemis Fowl series from Butler's pov

How did I get stuck with this.

Did he just trip over a rocket engine? Again?

Fairies?!)!)!!??!??!! In the BASEMENT?!?!?!

That’s it I’m sending Juliet to live in a bomb shelter BECAUSE IF SHE STAYs UNDER THE FOWL ROOF FOR ONE MORE SECOND SHE WILL LOSE A LIMB OF SOME SORT.

*devastated groaning*

So, Artemis, my genius billionaire teenage son - I mean principal - is traveling back in time with a fairy to rescue a lemur from himself. I quit. I’m done. I’m buying a condo in Hawaii.

Holly is literally 3 feet tall, a different species, and is in her mid eighties, she does not need to be looking at a 15-year-old boy like that.

*in Mexico, getting attacked by a demented wrestling audience* Only God can save that boy now.

As I look out over the sunset, I recall that Artemis has most likely made out with an 86-year-old woman. I take an aspirin and decide that I deserve a nap. And maybe a vacation forever.

Artemis failed. It was hilarious.

Today I called Artemis “Beautiful Cinnamon Bun” and he pelted a hardcover copy of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” at my face.

Artemis doesn’t know, but I stuck a paper reading “Old Lady Lover” on his back this morning and he still hasn’t noticed. It’s midnight.

I am in a spaceship, in the middle of the ocean, heading toward Atlantis with a fairy and a centaur, currently watching as Artemis is attacked by a giant squid. I was not trained for a situation like this.

So the end of the world happened in a blur. I remember demon crickets, babies with machine guns, and my son - I mean - oh never mind, turning into a depressing bush. I have decided to retire.

Commissions?

if i opened up commissions would anyone be actually be willing to like pay to request an art piece?

it would be mostly like scifi stuff so the thing is its extremely niche and not really worth paying for something specifically, unless there is something you r e a l l y want to see.

my thinking is unless you’ve got something in mind or like a specific idea/image, anything you’d want is already out there.

Maybe i could paint up a spaceship you’ve designed? Idk. sound off, let me know if commissions would be worth doing.

prices would probably vary from piece to piece, range is probably 10-30$ depending on the scale. I’m newer in the online art deal so I’ll have to work that out.

     bunny’s back at it yet again with a new blog for NU MIKITAKAZO NSHI ( or as he’s known on earth, MIKITAKA HAZEKURA ) from Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure!!

     miki’s a strange indvidual who claims he’s from space ( though no one really knows if that’s true or not. we think he is. probably). he’s not familiar with human culture, && one time he ate an entire packet of tissues without fear. no one really knows who or what he is. he’s a mystery wrapped in an enigma, but at least he comes in peace ( HAH ). generally respectful, polite, and extremely friendly, he’s a very soft person. he’s just a little bit lost. 

     so if you guys don’t mind interacting with a curious shape-shifting alien that would pet every animal in existence ( and may or may not just have a Stand, who the FOOK knows ), then do us a real solid && LIKE or REBLOG this post so we can take a Leisurely Spaceship Cruise™ to your place and check you out !! 

i just finished a book that blew my mind to pieces and I highly HIGHLY recommend it, especially if you like intense sci fi novels! It’s called Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie. Here’s a couple reasons why I loved it

  • it’s about Breq, a woman who used to be the artificial intelligence of a spaceship, but now she is just human (or at least, just in a human body) and is on a (revenge) mission related to why she’s just in a human body
  • a large portion of the plot revolves around space colonialism and how it’s impacted the lives of everyone involved
  • the author put so much effort into explaining how different languages reflected cultural distinctions between societies, and uh it’s amazing
  • there’s also gender differences between cultures (!!!) For example, Breq’s ppl (the Radch) only use she/her pronouns so she has trouble assigning gender correctly when in foreign places. It makes for an interesting commentary on how ppl just randomly assign gender. and also makes them all kinda gay from our pov if u think about it 8^)
  • ok and also it’s such an intricate and intense plot - i can’t explain why I loved it without major spoilers but. like. there were several times were I was literally on the edge of my seat, heart aching, amazed by what had just happened or what had been revealed. it’s beyond good, definitely check it out
