night watches us

11 Questions

Ah, what a lovely tag game! Thanks to @astronbookfilms for including me…


1. What is your favourite canon moment for your fandom(s)?

As I’m having massive issues with Sherlock at the moment, I’d choose a moment from m ynew obsession CMBYN. I love this quote from the book:

“In your place, if there is pain, nurse it, and if there is a flame, don’t snuff it out, don’t be brutal with it. Withdrawal can be a terrible thing when it keeps us awake at night, and watching others forget us sooner than we’d want to be forgotten is no better. We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster than we should that we go bankrupt by the age of thirty and have less to offer each time we start with someone new. But to feel nothing so as not to feel anything — what a waste!”

Meeting @missmuffin221 at her Sherlock-a-Thon in summer 2016.

If you have some time to spare…

Oregon and the west in general is literally burning to ash and there is almost no news coverage of it. The Columbia River Gorge is all but in ruins because of a wildfire started by two idiotic teenage boys throwing fireworks. I woke up to ash covering everything and skies so thick with smoke it looks overcast and foggy.

My heart is so broken.

Note for USAians who have access to the Starz apps

Starz releases its shows for users of the apps at midnight on the day of airing.

Basically, you’ll get American Gods 21 hours before it airs on the cable channel. 

Use this information wisely.

just a shout out to football fans from asia, australia, south and north america and other parts of the world who wake up in the middle of night to watch football and support their favourite teams, despite having school/uni/work on the next day. you are real mvps and I admire your passion and commitment!

                         i will be the answer at the end of the line
                      i will be there for you while you take the time
                in the burning of uncertainty i will be your solid ground

Do you ever think about how, for someone who doesn’t know Servamp, Tetsono would have to look really creepy. I mean, pairing this tall, muscular, apparently college-aged dude with the short baby-faced kid? Super weird. And yet the tall dude is 14 and the baby-faced kid is 15 and they’re both awkward teens with a crush and one of the most unproblematic ships in the fandom. Isn’t life great?

my heart carved itself out of my chest
and placed the bloody barely beating broken pieces in your hand
the night the stars first watched us collide


and there’s a rage built inside our souls
a love worthy of burning empires down
screams that follow us all the way home
only to be quieted when I kiss the blood from your lips


I refuse to lose you for without you I would lose my reason
and even when the universe forces us to part
you remain, echoing in this hollow heart that only ever belonged to you


We are the ugly parts of the love story,
But we are the beautiful ones too
