ominous

My latest Welcome to Night Vale cross stitch is complete! Maybe now the Sheriff’s Secret Police will stop stuffing my pillow with shrieking bats. I really would sleep better without their little claws tugging at my hair.

I know you can’t quite tell, but the top color of the setting sun is purple. Blame my camera.

ominous advice for the signs

aries : do not forget to close the doors behind you. things you may not recognize will creep and follow.

taurus : look away from the trees sometimes. they don’t always want to be known.

gemini : a vague feeling of impending doom is normal, but if it’s still there when you turn on the light then hide and lie in wait.

cancer : try to capture the ghosts that float around you. with cameras or your hands or even mirrors if you’re lucky.

leo : rest easy, there will be no wars for you tonight. but watch the crows and listen to their call. yes, they will be talking to you.

virgo : if there’s someone else in your mind, let them talk sometimes. you don’t know yourself as well as you think you do.

libra : sometimes secrets are good things. a burning heart or a pile of bones are not good secrets.

scorpio : you’ll find lots of light switches. not all of them should be turned on.

sagittarius : wrap yourself up in blankets and give the ocean an inch. the caves you’re exploring will still be there when you’re done.

capricorn : do not ever cover your eyes. if you look away, the stars will know, and they will not be able to help you.

aquarius : fold your hands to the sun and listen. find the beautiful thing in closed curtains and sprinkled light shining from a place you cannot see.

pisces : a mirror is not a gateway, so stay awake: old gods are still gods even when they’re silent.

Story Shard 636

“Tell me again why we’re heading TOWARDS the sound of ominous drums?”

“Because we went all the other ways and couldn’t find a way out. All that’s left is the drums direction.”

“It’s a bad idea.”

“No duh, but unless you want to try and dig our way out or bust through the roof, we are out of options.”
