Attending to the Fret Were Moths

Fast fact of taxed silver  
tolling passersby and binding
ridges, bit into banks,

false hope of lockjaw,
eyebar a blinking chain,

grip slick enough
brings down birds
in the suspension
like a new solution might
cure the visions, explain the wings,
the red-glint eyes resting gently
on the traffic, the flutter
of your fibrillation,

bleeding mothweb
between big trees

but all the fibrin in all the streams
couldn’t suspend the bridge.

fun binding of isaac story time

i had like 20 hearts and regen but i was down to like a single heart so i decided to wait for my hearts to fill up entirely but i got bored of waiting and if i tabbed out of the game it paused and wouldnt keep the regen timer going. so my solution was to shift + tab and bring up the steam browser and just watch youtube through that

this led me to getting thirsty and watching porn while a tiny barely visible isaac sat in the corner of my screen

From the museum book collection (translation mine):

After the fall of Constantinople, a greek community flourishes in Venice. It was there that the first Greek printing workshop was founded in 1670, by a merchant from Ioannina named Nikolaos Glykis

Glykis with his compatriots Nikolaos Saros and Demetrios Theodosios who founded two more Greek printing workshops in 1686 and 1755, began publishing consistently liturgical texts, grammar manuals and popular texts that were then distributed in Greek space through Ioannina- the most important distribution point of the era. 

The books were printed on cheap paper with woodcut, or etching illustrations.

ok guys but have you considered how much Chris Argent must have gone through, even before Teen Wolf era?

Like just imagine, 10 year old Chris Argent learning how to make silver bullets and escape bindings and protect the world from the unknown, excitement thrumming in his bones because finally. Finally, he gets to protect the world from the supernatural just like all his ancestors. Finally, he gets to be a hero.

12 year old Chris Argent realizing that hunting isn’t a game and that hunters aren’t always heroes from all the stories and that sometimes the real monstrosity is when he doesn’t recognize his own father through the haze of wolfsbane and gunpowder surrounding him.

13 year old Chris Argent cutting open his arm accidentally one day and reveling in the fact that his blood is the same color as the omega Gerard mercilessly shot down the other day.

15 year old Chris Argent hearing the words “Hunting is in your blood, son,” and cursing the code because if killing was in his bones, how did that make him any fucking different from all the things they hunted?

16 year old Chris Argent silently promising any God that will listen that he will become the best hunter, the most courageous, the strongest one to ever live, as long as they just please, please stop the endless procession of howls and screams that echo in his mind.

18 year old Chris Argent getting his wish.

22 year old Chris Argent meeting his match in a sparring partner with sharp eyes and a sharper smile who vows that she’ll get him to smile again if it kills her. After the fight, he leaves her in the infirmary with 3 stitches over her left eyebrow and she leaves him with a number and a maroon lipstick mark on his cheek.

26 year old Chris Argent holding a squirming, screaming baby and swearing on his life and whatever piece of soul he left over that his baby girl, his Allison would never feel like destruction is something that comes from your bones.
