sail with me into the dark

Sunset and evening star,
           And one clear call for me!
       And may there be no moaning of the bar,
           When I put out to sea,
       
       But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
           Too full for sound and foam,
       When that which drew from out the boundless deep
           Turns again home.
       
       Twilight and evening bell,
           And after that the dark!
       And may there be no sadness of farewell,
           When I embark;
       
       For though from out our bourne of Time and Place
           The flood may bear me far,
       I hope to see my Pilot face to face
           When I have crossed the bar. Lord Tennyson (1889)

  • Me: Nuoh, I just finished the second season of Voltron. Let's find out if there is any spoiler about Prince Lotor.
  • Fandom: *screams* OOOOOH, ARE YOU READY TO SET SAIL? BECAUSE I SHIP LANCELOT WITH OR WITHOUT YOU. SHIP SHIP SHIIIIP
  • ۜ\(סּںסּَ` )/ۜ
  • Me: ... Lancelot? What am I missing here? Did I just watched the wrong show? Are you seeing something I'm not? Are there any extra episodes that I am not aware of? Please, tell me where Lancelot come from!
  • Fandom: The ship does not require any worthless explanation ù____ù SHIIIIIIIIIIP!
Looking back at my life, I know I’ve ruined it. Sometimes I wake up at dawn to something that closely resembles a vision. I see what life is. With piercing clarity, I see it as the unbelievable miracle it is: a tiny bubble, shining in different colors, sailing all alone through a vast, encompassing darkness. It’s a bubble in time, a brief moment on a frequency quickly rushing past, a scene performed only for an instant. I awaken at dawn as if touched, as if burnt by this unfathomable truth. The next moment, I am filled with pain, a sorrow so powerful that it almost suffocates me. It’s not simply that I haven’t made the most of my life; I have also done violence to it.

“Assume his father was just as dark as you say, but was unable to murder his own son, assume he found a way to secret Thomas away from London…“

“He didn’t.”

I just don’t feel comfortable posting the entire song on YouTube, so the second chorus is missing from this video. Hence the abrupt transition in the middle.

This is dedicated to my sister and niece, the wicked girls of my life.

@digitaldiscipline you wanted to see this.

Physical sadness —
grey as the color of all theory —
it pins me with pearl

Silverly fastens with thread
attached to my body tips.

Its fingers — like the dear fingers of children,
small as squaring roots

They touch my blue brain,
turn death-cells into dreams,
rare and dark as art.

I begin to dream your voice,
sail across southering woman-heated sea

Until I’ve come into cold farness,
the fluctuating snow-floes,
the cirrose black and blue-white of a mind.

Whose pierce would I feel less
than that of this glass leopard.

Oliver for sure will be trying to — not help her [Felicity] — but give her some guidance. In episode 12, both Diggle and Felicity, for different reasons, are flirting with some darkness in their lives. Oliver basically, in this really great moment, tells both Felicity and Diggle, “Look, I’m basically a dark dude, I do bad things, but the ship has sailed with me. The whole reason I am aligned with you guys is because you guys are fundamentally just better people, you guys are more moral than I am.” Part of the fun of that episode is seeing how that advice to both Diggle and Felicity operates on them. It’s not necessarily going to operate on them the same way.

Voyager I and the Blue Planet


I.
I wonder if you remember me.
You said, “Go out. Find me
that universe, and take these
with you.” Talismans.

Good luck charms like Mozart
and fifty-five ways to say hello.
Navajo night chant,
Peruvian wedding song,
diagrams of ribcages, gender,
bushmen and bones.
Gifts for a people you said
I may never meet.

It has been thirty-four years
and I wonder if you remember me.

II.
Less and less,
we call across the distance:
sixteen-point-twelve hours
between transmissions
and I wonder if you remember me.

I nearly kissed Jupiter for you,
nearly skimmed Saturn’s bright rings,
but you said, “Go out.
Find me that universe,”
so I sail out into the dark for you.

I keep a photo of you
to keep away the quiet
between your calls:
pale speck, long distant,
but I remember you.

III.
I know now,
you will never call me home.

Get to know me meme: [1/15] pairings → John Silver/Madi (Black Sails)

“The burden I wasn’t prepared for it isn’t the men. It’s him.”

“Flint?”

“What he wants, what he needs, what he fears… the depths of it… they are profound and dark. I serve the crew best by tempering him, steering him where he’s needed. I’ve descended into those depths and connected with him so that I might be able to do so. But I am acutely aware that I’m not the first to have been there… to have been a partner to him in this way. And that the ones that have seen those depths before… they never surfaced again.”

“Maybe their mistake was in trying to do it alone. Maybe to go to such a place, one needs another to hold the tether and to find a way out.”

“Maybe.”

“Stay together sailing into the night
For you, who made the deep darkness in all the sea
Turn pink
again and again and again
I won’t falter even when life passes us by
I won’t stop like the radiant girl that summer
I won’t change like the unchanging wish every summer
Promise me”

Here is an example of something not progressing as visualised. I wanted to do something a lot looser than previous portraits (inspired a bit by Euclase on deviant art - more dramatic lighting)  The lighter background three are from before Christmas, the next two this week. I’ve gone all tight and detailed. I can’t get my watercolour layer to work to get the dark side pushed back. It’s lacking compositionally and no background. I’m throwing this out there to spur me on. It’s definitely needing something else in it…

waiting for a scene this season where silver and israel hands are alone in a room and hands is encouraging silver’s darkness and being ~the devil on his shoulder~ etc. etc. and then flint and madi dramatically barge in and yell “GET YOUR HANDS OFF HIM!!! >:(” in unison, then turn toward one another and high five while chuckling to themselves

Okay but think, yall.

Moana level in Kingdom Hearts 3.

Sailing on the seas in Moana’s boat searching for heartless on different islands Windwaker style. First visit is searching for Maui’s hook. Second visit is restoring the Heart of Te Fiti.

Background music would be an instrumental of “We Know the Way” while battle music would be either some riff on “Shiny” or some of the background music from the movie.

It would be so cool to see Sora connect with Moana (kids growing up on islands, wanting to see more, encroaching darkness…) and having them interact in general would be priceless. Not to mention Moana is stunning in its own right, so the art style is perfect for the graphic style of KH3.

Give me a Moana level.

Euron Greyjoy's Kingsmoot Speech
  • What GRRM wrote: "Who knows more of gods than I? Horse gods and fire gods, gods made of gold with gemstone eyes, gods carved of cedar wood, gods chiseled into mountains, gods of empty air... I know them all. I have seen their peoples garland them with flowers, and shed the blood of goats and bulls and children in their names. And I have heard the prayers, in half a hundred tongues. Cure my withered leg, make the maiden love me, grant me a healthy son. Save me, succor me, make me wealthy... protect me! Protect me from mine enemies, protect me from the darkness, protect me from the crabs inside my belly, from the horselords, from the slavers, from the sellswords at my door. Protect me from the Silence." He laughed. "Godless? Why, Aeron, I am the godliest man ever to raise sail! You serve one god, Damphair, but I have served ten thousand. From Ib to Asshai, when men see my sails, they pray."

favorite quotes // words to live by

I’m the type of person who loses hope and motivation really easily. I sometimes find myself lost,  wondering where I am heading toward and what the purpose of my life is. In those moments, I seek help in books and quotes. They help me so much wipe my troubles and questions away and discover who I truly am. Thus, here is a short list of quotes that inspire me in my everyday life.


“I can’t change the direction of the wind but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.” - Jimmy Dean

“The roots of education are bitter but the fruit is sweet.” - Aristotle (thank you @marias-studyblr  for showing this one to me)

“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars,” Ten Scrolls,  Og Mandino (for whenever you feel down)

“Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.” - Mary Kay Ash

“I am a Jew. Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? Fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer as a Christian is? If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge? If we are like you in the rest, we will resemble you in that. “ - The Merchant of Venice, William Shakespeare (a beautiful monologue for equality)

“I also know how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong but to feel strong.” - Primo Levi (also quoted in the movie Into the Wild which you should definitely watch if you haven’t yet - it has changed my life, for real)

“When nothing goes right, go left.” (I find this one hilarious yet quite true)

And now, one that I constantly repeat to myself :

“Don’t fear what you can’t control.” (this is something I try to tell myself every day for I’m the kind of person who feels anxious really easily, I’ve been trying to apply this advice as often as I can and I believe it actually helped me, especially during my exams)


Happy meditation, studyblrians !
