shadows run black


a spider’s lullaby | a Natasha Romanoff fanmix

01. here I come, a firebird, don’t offer up your sorrow, today you see me crash and burn but I’ll be back tomorrow / 02. acting like I’m heartless, I do it all the time, that don’t mean I’m scarless, that don’t mean I’m fine / 03. you will feel me like a thunderstorm, I shake the ground you walk upon, and you can wonder who I really am, I’m only the face of every woman, just a heartbeat in a man / 04. you don’t want to look at me, for you will turn to stone / 05. the song of the siren, a moth to the flame, do you live for the poison? then forget my name / 06. I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh lord, I’ve been waiting for this moment, all my life / 07. down in the deep where the sirens sing and hide in the muddy water, blood on my hands / 08. lay me down, leave me lost and found / 09. after the storms are passing through, they’ll know my name, when they’ve forgotten all about you

The Angsty Villain Playlist

So, villains are awesome. Not all of them are though. Some of them are simply awful (Like Umbridge) but some are just great. The best kind of villains are the kind that are made into villains by events and circumstance. The villains that have a hell of a lot of bitterness and rage stored up inside them that they just decide to unleash upon everything and everyone. The villains that are just so mentally insane you question your morals when you find yourself loving them.It also doesn’t hurt when a villain is easy on the eyes…. like Tate Langdon, Sebastian Morgenstern, Loki, The Darkling, Warner, Sam Winchester …okay, maybe  went a little too far with that one.

1) Deranged - Coheed and Cambria

2) Mama - My Chemical Romance

3) House of the Rising Sun (Cover) - Lauren O’Connell


5) Afterdark - BLQCK AUDIO

6) Dangerous Animals - Arctic Monkeys

7) Running - Delta Spirit

8) Fall Away - Twenty One Pilots

9) Trapdoor - Twenty One Pilots

10) Afraid - The Neighbourhood

11) Gods and Monsters - Lana Del Ray

12) Shadow On The Run - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

13) Breezeblocks - Alt-J

14) Mercenary - Panic! At The Disco

This song is kinda different from the others. While the others are more on the angry, bitter side, this song is basically someone talking to an angsty, angry, bitter, villain-like character.

BSD Novel: Dazai Osamu and the Dark Era (Epilogue)

I decided not to section the epilogue into two parts, so please have this treat! If you thought the suffering ended, you were wrong. Thanks to @nakaharachuyaa @mlntyoonqi @bananasaurr and @e-ki for proofreading as always!

Keep reading

her wings cast shadows 
her blessed blood runs black
she taints the battlefield
with darkness and crimson 

our phantom queen 
the crow’s nightmare
with teeth of eels
with claws of wolves

she wails warning
in the houses of warriors
washes their armour in blood;
she screams she cries

and when they pass into death
she stands tall
and orders their vengeance
crafts revenge for them all

—  she will bathe in battlefield blood // a.j.b


We know Anna Sui has fashion eyewear but did you know the brand brought out colored contact lenses stamped with their signature rose pattern?


I believe these are targeted specifically at the Asian market and they initially brought out bi-weekly disposables in Japan before launching these daily disposables across other Asian countries.

In Singapore they are available exclusively at Spectacle Hut for S$25 per box of 10 daily disposables - a bit more expensive than regular colored lenses, but then these are novelty lenses after all; I would keep them for special occasions personally.

There are 4 shades available here; Purple, Brown, Grey and Black, and yes - these do come in different degrees (0-800) for us myopic gals as well so that’s fantastic.

I tried the Purples cos this is Anna Sui’s signature color after all, and I would definitely say the color is quite subtle compared to typical colored lenses. They aren’t made to look very dramatic color-wise; they are proper circle lenses that create a bigger, rounder bambi-eyed effect with a subtle dusty violet color tone. Extremely sweet and dreamy looking; very Japanese in aesthetic.

The Grey and Black designs would be way too subtle in my opinion. The Purples already go on slightly grey looking on the eyes so it doesn’t make sense to get Blacks at all. (Just a thought.)

If you’re looking for obvious dramatic color these might not be for you; I would go with regular colored lenses instead. But if you want that doe-eyed fantasy “Anna Sui ad” look, these are gorgeous.

PROMO! Customers who mention my post and show the code “SH_AnnaSui_12“ in Spectacle Hut stores when purchasing multiple boxes of Anna Sui lenses are eligible for a free Anna Sui gift. Do check with the team in-store for exact details, as there seems to be some inconsistencies between stores!

Extra tips to bring out the color of the lenses?

  • Wear a soft smoky black liner (run black shadow over black pencil) and soft wispy falsies to bring up the contrast without making your eye look too hard and fierce.
  • Dab a tiny bit of soft lilac sparkle in the center of the lids to help bring out the soft purple-silver tones in the lenses.
  • Avoid eye makeup colors more vibrant and bright than the lenses you are wearing.
