sometimes i look at him

anonymous asked:

Rat-Attack, I have an oil lamp that's been passed down in my family since the mid-1800s and I think it's haunted. Since I got it, I often see out of the corner of my eye some dark-haired pale fellow in what looks like a Confederate uniform. I often feel like I'm being watched. If I start crying on the same floor as the lamp, I sometimes feel a hand grip my shoulder, cradle my face, or stroke my hair. He also opens the hall door sometimes. When I look directly at him, he tends to disappear. P 1/2

I finally asked my mom what side of the family owned the lamp, and it turns out that during the American Civil War, it was owned by a Confederate branch of our family. So, yeah.

oh wow! I love for shit like this. that’s just undeniable in a way a lot of family creepy stories are – there’s always that picture that shows up in the attic that looks just like the ghost, or some historical fact that comes up and confirms something that you couldn’t have known otherwise. it’s nice that he seems to be a friendly ghost! you never know with spirits who have seen a lot of violence or trauma in their life, because sometimes it can carry over into some very negative energy. he seems to be pretty chill, though. I wonder if he’s bound to the object, or if he just likes hanging around?

Sometimes I look at you and I can’t understand how someone before me didn’t see what I see,
sometimes I look at you and I can’t understand how someone before me didn’t notice a whole beautiful universe hidden within you,
sometimes I look at you and I can’t understand how someone before me looked at you and didn’t find every single thing they’d been searching for in a single human being,
and sometimes I look at you feeling glad that they didn’t, because if they looked deep enough to see all of those things within you, then I would’ve never been able to.

Now that we’ve actually seen the trailer for 2x18. And actually all remembered that Lena has an ex-boyfriend. And apparently they are actually going to make out to some degree (under mind control or no), let’s all remember that Rahul Kohli is an actual sweetheart, probably got on extremely well with Katie (because they’re both nerdy as fuck) and not send him hate via Twitter or Insta during the hiatus (or at any time at all really)? Because that’s rude. He’s nice. Leave him alone. Also remember he has gifted us pictures of actual cryptid Katie McGrath too.
