the life and loves of a she devil

masterpost of iconic lines/moments in Froot (2015) by Marina and the Diamonds

Happy: 

  • when the chorus effect starts on the line “melted away like I was free” and my soul escaped my body, went to hell, and was immediately forgiven by the benevolent god that is marina diamandis
  • “I realize to be happy, maybe I need a little company” and I started crying one minute and forty seconds into the album
  • the sheer force with which my head was ejected from my body when she hits the high note on “I believe someone’s watching over me”
  • the chord changes in the bridge making me feel melancholy realness, honey
  • invented the piano, invented happy songs that sound sad, invented music
  • I’ve fallen asleep crying to this song an uncountable amount of times

Froot:

  • THE FUCKING BASS RIFF IN THE FIRST TWO SECONDS which precisely and methodically severed my ear canal from my cranium
  • everything about this song
  • “ju-u-u-uice, la la la la la la la” >>> the entire discography of the rolling stones, the beatles, led zeppelin, and all of your dusty-ass “iconic” faves 
  • the sultriness of the fucking low G she hits perfectly and consistently throughout the verses
  • “but I ain’t in a patient phase” probably the most iconic modern music will get
  • the way she sings “come on fill your cup uuuuuuuUUUUUPP” shattering my femur
  • “i’ve been saving all my summers for you” assassinates all of the poetry by William Shakespeare combined
  • every part of the second verse, especially “baby I am plump and ripe, I’m pinker than shepard’s delight, sweet like honeysuckle late at night” which was better sex-ed than I received throughout my entire adolescent academic career
  • “birds and worms will come for me, the cycle of life is complete” making fucking DECOMPOSITION the sexiest thing anyone has ever said in the compendium of human history
  • The Fucking Bridge Melody that she sings well beyond the troposphere, above the stratosphere, and sitting sexily in the mesosphere
  • “oh my body is ready, yeah it’s ready, yeah it’s ready”

I’m a Ruin

  • marina single-handedly addressing the complexities of young-adult relationships with “I could treat you better but I’m not that smart”
  • the insane degree to which I scream “yeah yeah, uh huh, woo hoo, yeah yeah” at the end of the chorus, thus startling my neighbors and setting off car alarms
  • “It’s difficult to move on when nothing was right and nothing was wrong” making me spray tears out of my eyes like a machine gun
  • the way the back up vocals come in on “I’ve had my share of beautiful men, but I’m still young and I want to love again”
  • the dichotomy of “I’ll ruin you” and “I’m a ruin” are proven to be one and the same, thus ending the careers of marriage counselors across the world

Blue

  • the iconic and instantly-memorable backing track
  • the continuity between the themes of the last song with the opening line “we’ve broken up and now I regret it”
  • the FORESHADOWING of “and I don’t know why but I can’t forget it” which alludes to the themes of the NEXT song, Forget, basically proving Marina doesn’t need references to any body of literature but her own goddamn songs
  • “gimme love, gimme dreams, gimme a good self-esteem” ejecting my wig at mach 3 into another dimension
  • the sheer craftsmanship of the pre-chorus, which is perfectly catchy and memorable while refraining from cliches
  • the way the beat picks up on the chorus and I demand my non-existent ex to “gimme one more night”
  • “I’m sick of looking after you, I need a man to hold on to, I’m bored of everything we do, but I just keep coming back to you” proving marina is just as fed up with fuckboys as we are, but is just as flawed and hypocritical as us, showing her imperfections and making her more worthy of our worship
  • ending the song on the pre-chorus like the fucking INNOVATOR of MODERN MUSIC she is??? like please tell me WHEN will your fave

Forget

  • this list doesn’t include the visuals from the music videos but I will make an exception for the ICONIC wig she wears in the video
  • the vocals for “never heal” sending me into a tailspin and crashing into a ditch at 70 mph
  • 50% of the chorus is the word “forget” and it is STILL the height of modern literature
  • after her mention of an “abacus” in the second verse, abacus sales went up 2000% and surpassed their unprecedented popularity in ancient Greece
  • “yeah it’s time to be letting go, yeah baby you know what I’m talking about” probably the most iconique start to a bridge physically possible in this dimension
  • “YEAH I’VE BEEN DANCING WITH THE DEVIL I LOVE THAT HE PRETENDS TO CARE IF I’LL EVER GET TO HEAVEN WHEN A MILLION DOLLARS GETS YOU THERE OH ALL THE TIME THAT I HAVE WASTED CHASING RABBITS DOWN A HOLE WHEN I WAS BORN TO BE THE TORTOISE I WAS BORN TO WALK ALONE” is not supposed to be a high-intensity part of the song but I don’t fucking care obviously
  • the way she fucking develops the lyrics of the chorus throughout the song and makes each line the best life lesson you ever heard??? who is this woman?????

Gold

  • by FAR the most underrated song on the album for no goddamn reason like, have you demons even listened to it?? hmmmmm????
  • i have no idea how the accompaniment was made for the song but whoever did it was a genius and needs to be remembered for the rest of time
  • “doesn’t matter long as I am your star, sta-AAARRRR” melodically groundbreaking, please take notes everyone
  • “don’t think i want what I used to want, don’t think I need what i used to need” addressing the pains of growing out of old friendships and passions in a fun approach
  • “you can’t take away the Midas touch, so you better make way for a GREEK GOLD RUSH” YES MAMA REPRESENT YOUR COUNTRY LIKE THE GODDESS YOU AAAARE
  • knew she could rhyme “El Dorado” with “Colorado” and fucking did
  • the fade out at the end of the song painting her as a con-artist or corrupt gold-dealer being hauled off to jail while reveling in the near success of her schemes is what???? I C O N I C

Can’t Pin Me Down

  • this song is direct proof that marina is a straight up motherfucking KUNT in charge of her destiny. the album is labeled as explicit because of this ONE song and only ONE line: “you might think I’m one thing, but I am another. You can’t call my bluff, TIME TO BACKUP MOTHERFUCKER” like not only is this the most badass line in the history of language, but this line was so important to her that she made the album explicit JUST FOR THIS ONE LINE. SHE IS AN ICON. END OF STORY.
  • she is a feminist! BUT! “Do you really want me to write a feminist anthem, I’m happy in the kitchen cooking dinner for my husband” proving that you do NOT know this bitch. she is nothing you think she is. except that she is an I C O N.
  • the meter of “just another girl in the twenty-first century” has me unpredictably and immeasurably shook because she is just! that! kind! of! girl!
  • “You think I’m like the others, boy you need to get your eyes che-e-e-e-e-e-ecked, che-e-e-e-e-e-e-ecked” blew the skin clean off of my face
  • “i can be your russian doll” like,,,, gag
  • the entire concept and existence of this song is revolutionary and cements her position as the strongest female artist of our generation

Solitaire

  • holy FUCK you guys love to hate amazing songs, don’t you?? this song is without a doubt one of my favorites and you fuckers have the NERVE
  • the production on this song is one of a kind and continues to prove her versatility in style on this album. any reservations you had about her from electra heart better be EVAPORATED by this point.
  • the melodies on this song are, besides Froot, the catchiest on the album for me. they are so well crafted and inventive, i am shaking
  • “hard like a rock, cold like stone, white like a diamond, black like coal, cut like a jewel, yeah I repair myself when you’re not there” is such an amazing pre-chorus for this song like it could no possibly be better than that
  • the way the mood shifts from the verse to the chorus cut off my arms with raw blunt force
  • the flourish on the line “and I’ll admit all I wanna do is get drunk and silent” gave me an aneurysm
  • holy fucking SHIT the end of the bridge is for sure a highlight on the album. “but I’m not cursed, i’m not cursed, I was just covered in dirt” like damn marina go all the way off
  • the extra-dimensional high notes on this song are second to none, babes

Better Than That

  • “You’re just another in a long line of men she screwed” is the FUCKING WAY TO START A SONG, GIRLS. ARE YOU JOTTING THIS DOWN??
  • “So why’s she looking like a cat who got the cream?” ugh marina is so perfect I cannot deal with this bitch anymore
  • the sheer vocal talent on the chorus, like how high can this girl go? someday she’s going to rupture my eardrums and I will thank her personally
  • “with an angel voice, devil in disguise” the vocal production for this is perfect and successfully made me shit myself
  • “and she’ll network till her dreams come true, even if it means getting in a bed with you” miss marina is out for BLOOD everyone, the music industry is cowering in fear of her objective talent and lack of fucks
  • “i’m not passing judgment on her sexual life, I’m passing judgement on the way she always stuck her knife in my back” whoever this woman is she is getting READ for FILTH by lady diamandis and you all need to watch your backs

Weeds

  • this song is straight out of a sappy rom-com and I am fully living for it
  • “but it keeps growing back like WEEDS” I am currently screaming please give me a moment
  • “and God knows what sex is, a way to feel a bit, a little bit less lonely” marina chose sex to be a prominent theme on this album but she has shown she can handle it in the moment mature way any woman in the industry can. it’s subtle, it’s methodical, it isn’t vulgar, it’s just straight real and honest and such an important thing to discuss! this song is another aspect of how sex can be important in our lives. she better preach tbh
  • the aesthetics can reserved character on this song are a beautiful contrast that the album needed. filler tracks who???

Savages

  • full disclosure, this song blew a hole right through my body with the sheer impact of its lyrics and chorus
  • there are so many fucking good lyrics on this song, it’s truly baffling that anyone has a career in the music industry after this was dropped
  • “I’m not afraid of God, I am afraid of man” I am Screeching
  • the first beat of the chorus, my bodily fluids are already dripping from the ceiling and my bones are crushed into a fine powder
  • “underneath it all, we’re just savages hidden behind shirts, ties, and marriages” she is prophet, the chosen one, the woman who will deliver us from our mortal coils
  • “another day, another tale of rape, another ticking bomb to bury deep and detonate” Marina is fully aware of the important problems our nation is facing at the time the album was released and even to today. she isn’t a shallow artist like the persona she created in electra heart, she has become almost the exact opposite. She is taking on these issues with a clear judgment and grace and I am so proud and appreciative of her work.
  • “are you killing for yourself or killing for your savior?” YES YOU BETTER ASSASSINATE THESE MOTHERFUCKERS
  • the buildup in the last chorus to the E T H E R E A L ending is clearly the climax of modern pop music

Immortal

  • you could play this song for me and tell me it’s a message from an angel and I would 200% believe you
  • the melody on this track is so fucking pristine it’s like a glacier melting in your mouth
  • it continues the themes of humanity from Savages but looks at a completely different issue about it. this album is cohesive, planned out, and a complete and full body of work
  • the moment the chorus hits with “I’m forever chasing after time” my limbs are being forcibly extended by a device of love and torture
  • “but if the earth ends in fire, and the seas are frozen in time, there will be just one survivor, the memory that I was yours and you were mine” ok not kidding anymore this is STRAIGHT up MOTHER fucking POETIC genius and innovation at its most concentrated and talented moment
  • when she says “twice” on the high note in the chorus, it’s like the most beautiful bell shattering in my ear, tbqh
  • THE FUCKING BRIDGE is actual art. “I just wanna be able to say the I live my life” the way she executes this melody is cold-blooded and frankly she should be charged with manslaughter for it


bottom line, Marina Diamandis released the biggest breakthrough in pop music to date in 2015 and all of you demons let it flop. if you have the nerve to call this album a failure, I have literally 0 respect for you and no one is ever going to love you

Why Rick Lost, my thoughts on Season 3.

Season three of Rick and Morty is over, and Rick ends the series at the bottom once more, only this time rather than being hauled off to Intergalactic Prison for the crime of everything, he’s knocked from his high horse on the geopolitical stage and in his own home.

This season has been focused on the themes of recovery and reconciliation, but at the core of it, the season examines nihilism, with Rick being that worldview’s in-story avatar. And we see each member of the family, take a nihilistic turn, from Morty’s competent-but-jaded new outlook, Summer’s ‘let it all burn’ attitude towards her parent’s breakup, Jerry’s attempted murder of Rick and Beth’s… well, the whole bit at the back there.

Before I go further, ti’s important to note that (at least to me) nihilism isn’t a position one adopts.  It is a realization that cannot be un-realized. You may not be there yet, you may not get there, but for those that have the stark realization that nothing means anything inherently alters one’s entire reality. 

It doesn’t have to be (more on that in a bit) but being a nihilist can be dark, witness Rick in general. Nihilism, as represented by Rick, is defeated by two things. The more blunt force of which is the President:

The President is able to defeat Rick, or, more accurately, fight him to a perpetual draw, because he is oblivious to meaninglessness. He is just as stubborn and unyielding and petty as Rick, he doesn’t care about the costs of the battle because he has a philosophical principle (that the US cannot tolerate a rival power that won’t bend knee to it’s authority) that he adheres to for irrational reasons. The President can ignore the impact of Rick’s power and worldview because he’s a true believer. He is, unwittingly, the same as the thing that brings down Rick’s patriarchal hold over the family. 

Nihilism is half a philosophical outlook. It gives an observation, that there is no meaning inherent to anything, but it doesn’t address the question of “what do we do about it?” terribly well.

Choice is another solid theme in the season. As Morty beats a road-warrior proxy for his father to death, he screams for him to man up and make a decision. Dr. Wong monologues about choice. Rick ultimately gives Beth a choice to go on a consequence free adventure of self discovery or the option to “luxuriate in a life you can finally know you’ve chosen.”

Ultimately this leads to Rick’s defeat because Beth, or Clone Beth, it doesn’t matter, and the rest of the family all choose what they value. You can see this when Beth reflects on her first kiss with Jerry and realizes that while she hated it at the moment she loves it now. Beth, and the rest of the family, have become existentialists. They recognize that Rick is factually right, that they are insignificant in the face of infinity, that nothing has meaning, there is no god (and even if there is how tough can he be when the devil can be so thoroughly thrashed?) , and so forth, but they choose to give things meaning because they want to. To quote another show: 

Rick’s power is rooted in his ability to undermine the woldviews of those around him. He can tear apart the Vindicators because of the flaws in their version of heroism. He can defeat the devil because he isn’t impressed by the devil’s power. He can destroy the Galactic Federation because they need the concepts of money and governmental authority. 

But he can’t control a suburban household if everyone in it says “Yes, and what’s your point?” when he says “your life is a lie and nothing you care about is real.” The Smith family may not be as intelligent as Rick, but they’ve evolved beyond his philosophical position, or perhaps have simply chosen a better answer than “rage and despair” when responding to the void.

It is important to point out that in previous seasons, and a few times in this season, Rick is less a representative of nihilism and is more in line with the absurd hero of absurdist philosophy, and is a different response to nihilism than standard Existentialism. His “take the universe for a ride” speech is very much in keeping with the principles of absurdism, at least to my amateur perspective.

V’s feelings

So, I just finished another Day 9 chatroom, and I really felt like I needed to pour my thoughts into this and create another analysis.


First and foremost, I would like to willingly admit my bias towards V, so that the rest of you can point out flaws in my argument if you feel I was using more emotion and less practicality. This is an open discussion where we can all come together to share our opinions, so please feel free to!!!


Now, as for V’s feelings. ..It seemed that today, I couldn’t stop thinking about what V had said regarding his love being obsession. Of course, I was incredibly pleased with Cheritz for adressing this and making sure the fans know that V’s idea of love is unhealthy and should not be romanticised!!!


But I, like many before me, assumed that he and Rika started out loving one another like any regular couple before everything descended into the seventh circle of hell. We had no reason to think otherwise.


However, the route seems to indicate that V was that infatuated with Rika from a very early stage, though the tendencies perhaps didn’t show up until later on.


I sat back for a moment and had to remember how to breathe as my brain started to peice together the implications.


V, someone most of the fandom has marvelled at for his unconditional love, doesn’t know how to love.


V doesn’t understand love as much as Rika doesn’t. The only people who truly loved him were his deceased mother and Jumin before the RFA.


It took a while for this to sink in, because before this, no one in the fandom knew how utterly and completely lost in the world V actually is.


We had assumed that everything was due to the common side effects of being a domestic abuse victim. And while partially true, we now know that V is much, MUCH more complicated.



V does not understand the world or himself. I have made SEVERAL previous points touching on the fact that V’s infatuation with Rika can’t possibly be regarded anywhere near what a mentally stable person should feel. The fact that he’s not OK and probably never was, even going as far as to theorise about his familial life.


Basically; V, head of RFA, does not know who is and what the hell he’s doing. He stumbles upon Rika, and immediately decides that his life is for her; that loving her wholly and devoting himself to her is the purpose of his entire existence.


Let me rephrase that, for those that do not understand just how intense this is: V literally thought that his purpose in life was to love Rika and give himself completely to her; to let her hurt and destroy him, to let her pick him apart and ruin him whenever it was she wishes.


This isn’t even because Rika implied something- he was always this way. And when the implications came up, he seemed absolutely unphased and accepting of it. That’s… That’s so fucking heartbreaking.


Rika fed into that part of V; she longed for someone to “save” her from the devil within, which even “God” could not save her from, in her words. This encouraged V’s unhealthy infatuation and solidified the idea that, yes; his purpose in life was to be her sun until she wished to extinguish him completely.


This went on going until Rika’s “devil” finally became suffocated by V’s “love”, and she had to flee. (Important to note that she left V because of this, but she did not start Mint Eye due to this. Mint Eye had already been in progression far before this! I’ll link to the post describing that soon.)



Now, V obviously regrets it. He goes into this state of depressing self contemplation and tells the MC that he regrets attempting to love anyone. He regrets allowing himself to share in the joy of love. I had never felt so heartbroken from a VN like this since Seven’s Route. ..


Anyway. MC goes on to say this;


In the first picture, we can see that V and Rika are similar in that way; both wished desperately to experience love, but it was a love that was false and ended in agony. V fell in love with the idea of love so pure and selfless like the sun, something he longed to experience himself- Rika fell in love with the idea of being loved and understood by someone. To me, at least, both fell in love with their wishes and ideals, and they lived that through one another.


And I think the MC is right when she says that their love was tragic. Remember, neither of them ever loved anyone else before, as far as we all know. And this first experience for them was DISASTROUS and damaging. V’s sense of self is even lesser than before



Here we see V wallowing in guilt and self hatred. He scolds himself for ever thinking that he could love someone properly. He scolds himself for ever thinking he deserves love.


He is a broken man- peices of a puzzle that refuse to fit with one another, photographs that tell a disconnected story and incomplete paintings riddled with tear drops.


For all the innocence of character Yoosung and Rika portray, according to Cheritz… V seems pretty innocent as well. He tries to build his way up- tries to fill a void in his soul and tries to save others because he’s too afraid of the idea of saving himself.


I believe Rika when she says that V’s love only made her worse because it “threathened [her] devil” , even though I firmly believe she fed into it continuously and that her actions (hurting V and starting Mint Eye, brainwashing vulnerable people into it) are her own and hers alone. However; I don’t believe her at all when she says that V only wants to sacrifice himself for the sake of nobility. I believe that she believes it, but I don’t agree with it myself.


Because here we see a V that’s so willing to figure out just why he was born in this world- a V who knows not who is nor why he is there, and who cares less about himself than Jaehee does about Elizabeth the Third. He truly wants to put an end to what he believes he started.


And I’m going to end this post on that note. I might make another couple of posts regarding Rika, Ray, and V in general because there’s a lot to sort through in this route. Thank you for reading and I hope you guys are enjoying this route as much as I do!

CAN I JUST SAY HOW PROUD I AM OF LUCIFER??

Like, this angel devil has come so god damn far. He protected humanity, he protected INNOCENT lives. He was torn apart thinking how linda might be hurt, he was ready to race over to her office right away when there was an idea that Mom hurt her. 

He resorted to ANOTHER WAY in resolving what happened with his mother– he didn’t kill her, he didn’t let her into heaven to deal with dad, he GAVE HER A NEW LIFE. He let her go, because it meant protecting humanity and especially protecting Chloe. Even though he loved his Mom, despite how fucked up she was and what she did to him and to Chloe. It was his Mom.

He took Chloe’s advice to HEART. Going forward is best, not backward– he took her words, recognized them, and made decisions based on that idea.  He dropped everything, spoken in choked up words “She has...Chloe”. Just begging his older brother to help him, so help him dad this human is his everything.

He immediately visited Linda in the hospital, and even coyly said “Enough about me..” and gave her glasses back, gently placing them on her face so she could see. He was ridden with guilt at the thought it was all his fault, and listened to her when she inclined she CHOSE to be his friend with all the consequences.

His little “I…I want to tell you everything…” on the phone KILLS ME. This is Lucifer’s biggest fear people!! His Chloe, his miracle, his best friend, his DETECTIVE….the fact that she could see the real him, that he could finally decide it’s simply best to be honest. No more going backward. He wants to show her how much he trusts her..how much he needs her in his life. Lucifer has never wanted to hurt Chloe. She said she would accept his flaws-- it’s time to believe her.

And like??? that takes so much strength. There are things that scare me, and yet I struggle with facing those things every day. Lucifer took a long, deep breath and finally let go.

He wants to be himself. That’s all he ever wanted.

And he was ready to do it.

Silver Dagger
Joan Baez
Silver Dagger
Don’t sing love songs, you’ll wake my mother.
She’s sleeping here right by my side
And in her right hand a silver dagger,
She says that I can’t be your bride.

“All men are false”, says my mother,
“They’ll tell you wicked, lovin’ lies.
The very next evening, they’ll court another,
Leave you alone to pine and sigh.”

My daddy is a handsome devil
He’s got a chain five miles long,
And on every link a heart does dangle
Of another maid he’s loved and wronged.

Go court another tender maiden,
And hope that she will be your wife,
For I’ve been warned, and I’ve decided
To sleep alone all of my life.
Stoned love

Stop messing round with that fire,
Living like love is just a gun for hire,
Cos one moment its just messing round,
To your wiki saying she’s your spouse,
Oh but its not just girls,
Cos yeah one moment I was tearing off her blouse,
Now she says she’s living in my house,

Babe I know you said you’d never smoke pot,
Its just; that burned Like your first splif,
Now we just hanging around in the dark, you’re pale as a ghost.
Stop messing round now, cos am too stoned,
You’re know I can’t save you cos in this game am too gone,

She’s only seventeen, and thinks at sixteen am all there is,
But a degenerate kind, baby am definitely not what you need,
She wants to dance with devil, Mr brownstone is just grave,
Oh Y’know the drugs will drown her out, just too young,
Can’t believe this is my life, smoking and fucking in the back,

❝ i can shake everything off as i write; my sorrows disappear and my courage is reborn, ❞  - Anne Frank

i really really love and admire these authors and their incredibly divine writings that just pulled my heartstrings and drowned me in my own ocean of tears. you should have a look and when i mean ‘should’ i mean you MUST because they are insanely good (in my opinion). i’m sure there are way more brilliant writers and stories to discover but then again, there are a billion stars in the night sky and we have all the time in the world to pick one and admire it.

The Exorcism of Anneliese Michel

Though the classic horror film ‘The Exorcist’ popularised the phenomenon known as demonic possession, individual cases are still incredibly rare, and exorcisms - the ritual of casting out demons - are rarer still. Most cases of so-called possession are now treated from a psychiatric standpoint, though occasionally a patient’s family will try any avenue of treatment once the symptoms become severe enough. This is what happened to twenty-year-old Anneliese Michel in 1975.

Anneliese (Anna) Michel was a devoutly Catholic woman who lived a quiet life alongside her parents and three siblings in Bavaria, West Germany. Though the entire family was deeply religious, Anna was almost fanatically obsessed with 'being pleasing to the Lord’, and attended Mass many times a week. Friends from school remembered her as a lovely, shy girl who frequently prayed and knelt on the floor while she did her schoolwork.

When she was sixteen Anna suffered a seizure and was diagnosed with temporal lobe epilepsy. Around this same time she became very depressed and withdrawn, and complained about seeing 'devil faces’ in the walls around her. Anna’s parents committed her to several institutions and took her to counselling, but by 1973, at the age of twenty, Anna stopped responding to treatment and became convinced there was a demon inside her head. Her parents attempted to have her healed, but their daughter apparently became incredibly violent when a priest tried to touch her head with a crucifix, and screamed when holy water was sprinkled near her. Initially the priests Michel’s family contacted refused to conduct an exorcism, but when Anna began drinking her own urine and speaking an unknown language in a voice far different from her own, the family bishop agreed to contact the Vatican and permission to perform an exorcism was granted.

On 24 September 1975, a Catholic priest named Arnold Renz began the exorcism of Anneliese Michel in her family home. Although she was twenty-two-years old, Anna was tied to her bed using yards of rope and denied food and water during the gruelling exorcisms, some of which lasted over eight hours. She was forced to genuflect for hours at a time, and Renz administered anti-psychotic medicine during the rites despite having no qualifications or medical authorisation. For over ten months Anna was systematically starved and forced to pray by Renz and both of her parents until she weighed just 30 kilograms.

On July 1, 1976, Anneliese Michel died at her home after a particularly long exorcism session. The medical team who attended her determined she died from persistent malnutrition and dehydration, and also stated that Anna hadn’t been seen by a doctor for at least three months before she died. Both of Anna’s knees were broken from endless praying, and an autopsy revealed she was suffering from pneumonia as well as kidney failure and gum disease. When the local police heard of her death while under the care of her parents and at least one priest, they built a case against them and eventually charged the Michel’s with negligent homicide. The Catholic priest who performed most of the exorcisms was also charged with negligent homicide.

During the trial in 1978 a score of doctors testified that Anneliese Michel was not possessed, but rather mentally ill. It was discovered that no medical doctor was aware of Anneliese’s previous health record for epilepsy, and no doctor was seeing her regularly during the last round of exorcisms. Both of Anneliese’s parents and the priest Arnold Renz were found guilty of manslaughter as a result of negligence and jailed for six months. The Catholic Church drew intense criticism in the aftermath of Michel’s death, and had to change its requirements for conducting exorcisms.

sunrise and your sins; Shawn Mendes

a/n: to be honest i’m not completely sure, all i know is i watched the ‘Dusk till Dawn’ music video and got some ideas for a Shawn au. 

masterlist 


‘Cause I wanna touch you, baby
I wanna feel you, too
I wanna see the sunrise and your sins
Just me and you
Light it up, on the run
Let’s make love tonight
Make it up, fall in love, try - Dusk till Dawn, ZAYN ft Sia. 


His facial features resemble those of the gods, and in the moonlight it’s no different. 

White light streams over his creamy skin, red blushed cheeks and stubble blessed jaw. He’s looking at her like he’s lost in something. Got his brown eyes glazing across her features as she plays with his hair, facing him from her pillow as she lays her cheek on her spare hand with a content look on her face.

in another life, zeus is lounging on the couch of his best friend’s house and saying, “i’ll get a job, man, i swear it,” even though CEO seats only smell of sweat and he’s the type to smell of leaving, he says, “guess what’s up my sleeve” to ladies and shows off lightning bolt tattoos and gets drunk and cries and begs hera to come home because he has only ever known rest at the seat of her collarbone

hera’s is louis vuitton, devil wears prada. pants suits and hair up in a tight bun. a warning lies ready on her tongue, she is quick to scold, hard to love. she pours fireball into her morning coffee just to remind herself of the way he always smelled of burning, just so she could face a little bit of him and not come back running. in this life, she is divorced, is doing well, sometimes meets up with the baby mamas of her sour-faced ex-lover (if she could wash him out, she would, she would, she would, but lightning loves towers and she only feels at ease in thunderstorms and twenty-four stories because olympus was rebuilt into skyscrapers and nobody can tell her otherwise), sometimes gets over her hatred of them. the one who jumps at swans is her roommate, they both like romance movies and staying out late. she chooses alone. she chooses: i make my own home.

aphrodite is a party girl with black pumps and a wicked smile, facebook messages hephaestus while sex-skyping her little god of war, she says, “sorry” a lot. sometimes she thinks she is running out of love, sometimes she thinks there’s not enough love left. she comes around again to the satin of her lover’s beds, never feels warm. she says, fine. she says, i’m okay. ares here is commander of the department of defense, never settled down, never got the wife and two kids. one day in this life hephaestus hears a knock on his garage door and walks on over. in this life, they’ve got braces for broken people like him. when he answers, it’s just her, no makeup, just her in her big-eyed weepy mess, and she says, “you actually listen” so he listens for a little. she explains slowly; new term, polyamorous. she says, heart is steady bead on both people. he says, “i know, i understand,” she says, “but it’s hurting you,” he says, “i gave up hurting for other people a long time ago,” he says, “the war god and i go out for drinks and talk about anything but you” she cries again, a whole ocean. he says, “i am learning, and one day maybe it will be all us three” she says, “you wait for me,” and he does. more and more often, when the world tastes too much, she shows up at his door, to be the person she is when she’s unbeautiful. in this life, a little down the road, she takes a break from all of it and starts a no-kill shelter called “the golden apple”. hephaestus builds it for her. she kisses him on the cheek. one day, when the ares comes around, the three of them play video games. after that, it is not share-her. it is all-the-same.

athena turns down apollo on the radio, his song trapped in the throats of all who hear it. a good song, a catchy song, a hear-it-once-and-never-forget-it song. athena dropped out of school to pursue knowledge. she teaches around the world with a backpack on her back and a smile on her face. her girlfriend is a librarian. whenever she comes home, she swings the little woman up in her arms and bursts with stories. the woman laughs because stoic athena in public is not the athena of private, is not knowledge-river athena. athena freelances as a journalist. anywhere she can give out information is good enough. eventually her name and “breaking news” are synonymous.

artemis goes to the red carpet on the arms of her brother, says that the world of hollywood is too much sunlight for her, she goes back to working as the city’s best detective, the hunt in her blood for monsters among men. in her free time, she follows athena down to places, traps poachers who would use her name to ruin the lives of beasts. hera has learned long ago not to pester her about marrying. artemis comes out as ace/aro one day to her brother, who rolls his eyes at her. “you still get grossed out every time people kiss,” and then he bowls her over in a hug she didn’t know she needed. this is one of the only times he sees her cry. the next is eight years later at his wedding. the man he chooses as his partner has already undergone a secret artemis-style investigation. he came out clean, and she came out with a second brother. when her twin asks her about the happy tears, she jokingly tells him she was worried his was going to marry his car. he laughs, big sun laugh and says, “trust me, i was this close.” in hot summers, they go down to the docks and the two boys throw atemis in the water. she never stops complaining or loving it and loving them and is entirely happy when he becomes a father.

in this life, demeter raised a flowerchild who never took to the backbreak of farming, and in this life, hades’s black leather jacket at first made her spit. she despised his motorbike and his big smile and how loud his dog was and how her daughter jumped up nimbly on the back of that thing and flung herself at the horizon. but hades tries as hard as he can: the engine gets turned over into clean fuel even though he breaks his third finger in the middle of it, the leather jacket gets swapped out for a faux replication, he becomes vegan (”’sehpone,” he says in wonder one day, “you taught me how to live off of pomegranates”, sephie laughs), he makes deer-crossing signs and petitions for the rights of small-town farmers. Persephone becomes a wedding designer, loves making big shows out of a lot of flowers. after many holiday gifts (some so desperately approval-seeking that demeter actually chuckled at them), she relents. they have brunch on sundays, made specifically by hades and his whole-grain all-organic house. demeter at one point says, “actually, you’re so earthy-crunchy it’s more than even me” and hades drops the plate he’s holding. demeter comes to the engagement party and laughs when the cake is in the shape of a pomegranate seed. sephie says, “don’t worry mom. he knows what will happen if he does anything to me,” and demeter gives her daughter a proud smile and says, “you’ll crush him like a bug, won’t you sweetie?” and sephie looks over at her duckling god of death and says, “exactly”

hestia finds dionysus because that is what she does. a social security worker at first, she becomes keeper of the hearth-less. she starts with a small group of people and eventually became leader of a chain of homelessness shelters, all immaculate and warm and held to her standards. dionysus cries when she picks him up, he talks about having fallen in love again, she says, “rehab is your only option.” it is here that he meets someone who is also pansexual. it is here he realizes he is not broken. it is here where they wean him off of whiskey and heroin (”what a bad combination,” he’d later say, shaking his head, “like you really gotta choose one”) and where he breaks down often and throws things at hestia’s head and calls her more names than have ever been strung against her: it’s here he makes his best friend. when he gets out, he finds he’s still ever-thirsty, but this time, there’s less empty in him. he helps at her shelters. he meets a girl who is bisexual, she takes him to pride rallies. he later bursts into hestia’s room with a rainbow on his face and says, “there are so many like me! i’m not invisible! i’m not fake!” and she smiles and watches the hearth of his chest warm up and helps him become a leading spokesperson for activism. rather than letting people like him die in the streets, he uses his experience to say, “i lived survival, and you can live it with me.”

hermes is a surgeon over in the children’s section, found that this is where he should be. silicone valley wants him for his communication systems, but instead he feels like he needs to be somewhere the action is. poseidon comes to him in darkness with rough palms and says, “i have a very long-standing secret,” and hermes just nods his head. the surgery is done quickly and without charge. poseideon says, “thank you” four million times, and then she takes back off to her company dedicated to clean energy. she calls up hera crying and says, “i dd it, i did it, i did it, but what will he think of me,” and hera says, “i haven’t talked to zeus in six years but if he rejects you i will walk up to him and shake him until the right answers fall into his head” and when artemis hears she says, “i will go with you” and walks at her side the whole time even though poseideon is awash with emotions and ready to burst into tears. zeus opens the door and looks poseideon up and down and says, “did you do something  with your hair, sis?” and poseideon says, “eat my entire” before she’s swallowed by happiness and has to sit down on the concrete step and sob into her palms for sixty seconds. later she puts him in charge of the wind energy portion of her company. he gets his own place, but he never stops missing hera, who watches him from a distance and checks up on him through poseideon. hera says, “right now it’s about me. it can be about him if he keeps up the good behavior.” poseideon has never been so happy. she has her family and she has herself, in one piece, finally. she calls up sephone, she says, “listen, i’ve got a plan, okay?” and of course the wedding planner would have to be in charge of everything. 

in this life, the reunion is beautiful. dionysus doesn’t touch the alcohol. hestia stands beside him proud and wonderful. apollo (who wouldn’t come without being allowed to choose the music) and his husband push artemis into the pool, she returns the favor with athena’s help. hades and persephone beat everyone at beer pong, but demeter crushes them at gin rummy. posideon dances with her sisters. hera stands back and her mouth quirks and zeus watches her the whole time, in his new three-piece suit. aphrodite is in between two men, but she’s no longer quite in between them. she walks over to her once-king and says “love needs time and understanding” and he thinks: of course. of course. he will change who he is for her. she never needed him. he needed her. he needed this to feel in place: he needed a family, as one, as olympus with its golden gates. in this life, for one moment, they are all happy.

Me or him?

(Request) Summary: Hey can you write about being in the new infinity movie and y/n has a lot of scenes with tom holland & Sebastian stan. While on press tour Sebastian starts falling in love with y/n personality and the press thinks that tom and y/n are cute since they laugh a lot during interviews while Sebastian more reserved. Can it be a lot of angst and fluffy.

Y/N was lapping the attention up, she was currently standing on Tom’s balcony enjoying thousands of people screaming at the mere sight of her. 

“You know,” she starts, whilst heading back inside to sit on the sofa with Tom, “I always dreamed of doing that as a kid, like some Marilyn Monroe or something. Stupid really,” she finishes, intertwining her feet and admiring the leather knee high boot adoring them. Tom grins at her and sets himself back on the sofa and turns his face, which is now lulling on the back of the sofa, to her,

“your a natural love, I can’t believe the world has only just seen the beginning of you. You should have been snatched up.” Y/N laughs and places a hand on his knee

“As lovely and corny as that was I didn’t go looking for it. I waited tables until last year remember.” Tom, however, is zoned in on the hand placed on his knee. Brain working one-hundred miles an hour trying to calculate what that mean if anything at all. Before reaches a conclusion his assistant knocks on the door to say the car is arriving. Y/N beams at Tom and jumps up, slipping out the door after sticking her tongue out at him. As they walk down the hallway another door opens and out step Sebastian Stan who has a shit eating grin when he spots Y/N. Shutting the door he joins them in their strides towards the elevator,

“How are you two love birds?” Sebastian jabs Tom is the ribs and he pushes Sebastian’s hand away. All now situated in the lift no words are exchanged until they reach the cars and Y/N shouts “me and Tom are just friends, his too young anyway,” before getting in a car with Sebastian, who, shoots him a wink.

.

.

.

Arriving at the panel they all meet up with the crew and Y/N is whisked away by Scarlett for a change of wardrobe but Sebastian grabs Tom’s arm and keeps him behind the rest.

“Man I just wanted to apologise about back there. I got a bit to big headed didn’t I?” Tom narrows his eyes as response and Sebastian continues as they climb to the forever ending table showcasing water and mics.

“I just see what you see in her you know. The hair, smile, eyes, funny, smart, kind, genuine, sweet…” Tom creases his eyebrows and squints his eyes at the almost dribbling Sebastian before patting his shoulder and sliding into the directors chair next to Paul Rudd. The devil herself taps her now heeled covered feet over the stage and some fans that have snuck around early scream, scaring the life out of her so she jumps back, laughs and continues on. Throughout the entire panel Sebastian sits, staring, at Y/N hoping she doesn’t notice the burning pain searing in he head from his eyes. Paul nudges Tom and bats his head towards Sebastian,

“I reckon loverboy has fallen in love. What do you reckon?” Tom’s head whips around to see Sebastian’s wandering eye but before he can call him out on him an interviewer asks a puzzling question.

“So Y/N your clearly a favoured cast member but you and Mr Holland over there seem to be very close anything there?” Y/N looks down and seems to be blushing, she finally composes her pink tinted face she replies.

“Me and Tom, whilst very close, are also colleagues therefore I wouldn’t date him. Or anyone on my job in that fact.” Tom tries to stay quiet and not look like a kicked puppy but it becomes slightly hard until the end of the first panel ends and they all head to allocated rooms. Tom, who happens to be passing Y/N room hears Sebastian’s voice and its slightly hurt. He turns to walk away but a rage seems to heat in his throat. Knocking on the door Y/N quickly opens the door just enough so her head is stuffed out, faltering with a smile she stutters,  

“I’m really sorry love its not the time.” Tom goes to turn to leave but decides his had enough therefore bursts part her to see Sebastian nearly pulling his hair out. He quickly stands to his swaying feet when he sees Tom and his face goes back to the set in stone mould. Sebastian slips his hand into his jacket pocket and he says,

“mate its really not the time.” Tom bites back,

“Its never the time! Look Y/N I need to tell you something but if your not with me your with Sebastian so I’m going to say it now.” Y/N raises her eyebrows as if to indicate for him to go on so he does “I really like you, I like everything about you. We laugh, we have fun why can’t we just give things a go?” Y/N stands like an open mouth fish and its not looking at Tom but Sebastian who is just as shocked.

“Um I suppose its not a good time to mention I just told Y/N I like her is it?” Sebastian whispers into the tension thick air. Y/N goes over to her mini fridge and grabs a bottle of water, unscrews the cap and gulps down eight large sips. She kisses her teeth and starts explaining

“Um, Tom your great and its not that I…Tom I want us to…Tom things between us are…” She huffs and rubs her hand across her forehead, “go wait in your dressing room Tom.” His so shock that he finds himself only understanding what happens when he is sitting in his own room and listening intensely for the knocking of the door. The next panel is in twenty minutes but he is considering faking illness, flying home or faking his own death. Five seconds after Tom has figured out how he can sneak out of the convention the door knocks. He opens it too Y/N who is chewing on her nails anxiously,

“Can I come in?” He steps aside and lets her inside where she makes her self comfortable on the sofa. “I spoke with Sebastian,” she starts and Tom realises she doesn’t want to hear about it, not yet anyway.

“Why don’t we leave this? It is a bit heavy after all.” He gets up and heads for the door but Y/N starts talking again and so does Tom. Soon it becomes a battle of who is going to win until Y/N butts in louder than before,

“I told Sebastian to fuck off. Happy now?” Now its Tom’s turn to look shocked, “I’m 23 years old Tom I can’t date someone more than ten years older than me. I’m going back to Hawaii after we’ re done here, come with me? Lets see what happens.”

I’m really sorry this was half assed but I’m trying and its not clicking I’m so sorry whoever reads this its just been a hard day xx

HERE’S WHY, DOWN BELOW:

*NOTE: NOT MY GIFS SO IF I USE YOUR GIFS I APOLIGIZE I FOUND THEM ON GOOGLE IMAGES. LET ME KNOW AND I WILL TRY AND FIGURE OUT HOW TO CREDIT YOU*


1. {Heavy In Your Arms} When Rose realizes Dimitri has been turned. Devastated, she decides to hunt him down in Blood Promise. Only to realize he has become the exact opposite of the man she fell in love with.


2. {Alive} This is how I picture Rose must be feeling after Mason’s death and she is getting the marks ( im blanking on what they are called lol) on her neck. Everyone is congratulating her, and she realizes being a guardian is not all it’s cracked up to be. (But post Last Sacrifice, despite all that happened to her, she is still here living and breathing.)

3. {Spark the Fire} A sort of up beat tune I can picture Rose kicking ass too. At the Equinox dance, and Dimitri sees her in the dress, and when she and Christian rescue Lissa.

4. {Castle} When Rose and Lissa return to the acadmey. Both Rose and Lissa  are highly criticized and judged for leaving, especially Rose. The rumors and the backstabbing that occurs between these two in the first book.

5. {Song 5} Frostbite is my favorite book, but I’m just gonna say it: Rose was very irritable and fedup with everyone and everything in this book lol. I feel her frustration in this book when people assume she is hooking up with Adrian, getting ‘beat up by her Mom/her return, and Dimitri getting cozy with Tasha.

6. {Im So Sorry} The song when Rose has her ‘fuck it I’ll do whatever I want” moments. “I tend too punch first and find out who I actually hit later.”

7. {Power} Another song I can picture Rose kicking ass too or working out too. Rose is overly confident and self aware of her beauty that boys admire her and other girls envy her.

8. {Bad Reputation/Black Sheep} When Rose and Lissa escape from the academy, and are eventually caught by Dimitri (And when Rose is broken out of jail by the whole gang).

9. {In the Night} My poor cinnamon roll Rose is always being criticized by evryone! :( everyone expects the worse from her. Especially in Frostbite, Shadow kissed, and Spirit Bound. When people think she is a whore, when she isn’t. When her mom thinks she irresponsible, but she just wants her mother’s approval.

10.{Island in the Sun} I think in Frostbite when she sees Christian and Lissa dancing at a royal party, or in Shadowkissed when she has to guard Christian and sees them Kissing all the time, this song comes to mind. Rose realizes she may never get that because the man she loves does not wanna risk either of them getting in trouble for their forbidden romance. Rose is on the outside looking in. (Which is pretty funny considering this is supposed to be happy song lol).

11.{Seven Devils & Breath of Life} Breath of life, when the strigoi attack the school and Dimitri gets kidnapped and she hunts him down. Seven devils, when Rose is being haunted by Mason and decides to go to Dimitri’s home town to tell his family he is ‘dead.’

12. {This is How You Remind Me} When Rose’s Mom tells her Dimitri may become Tasha’s guardian. And she begins dating Mason and realizes she will always love Dimitri. Poor Mason :( (Also a tune when Rose is dealing with the aftermath of his death.)

13. {Unconditionally} Rose and Lissa’s friendship summed up. Especially when Lissa is crowned queen, and Rose is her guardian. Rose is beaming with pride :)

14. {A Little Taste} Literally, blood lol. Anything related to the bad things moroi vampires got themselves into. That, and Rose’s attraction to Dimitri in the first book.

15. {Secret Love Song} Rose wishing her Dimitri could go public as a couple. Their love story summed up lol.

16. {Can’t Pretend} This song can literally fit in with any of the books. Rose realizing she will have to put Lissa first through everything, no matter how frustrating it is. Rose realizing being a guardian is not what it is cracked up to be. Dimitri trying to hide his feelings for Rose. Rose trying to accept her fate with being shadowkissed, and awaiting sentencing in Last Sacrifice.


17. {All Too Well} Saw an edit of the Taylor Swift lyrics having to do with Romtri. I realized this song fit when Rose has flashbacks or looks back on her journey with how her and Dimitri came to be.

{Bonus tracks:

 Love me or love me- Little Mix 

It’s You- Zayn }:

 I had just discovered Little Mix a while ago, (amazing band highly recommend) and I listened to it and I thought of Rose’s frustration that she and Dimitri will never be. And she dates Adrian even though she longs for Dimitri. Love me or Leave me and It’s You, can also be seen from Adrian’s POV :/ Adrian chooses not acknowledge the fact that Rose still loves Dimitri. His heartbreak and Rose’s guilt for hurting him, is inspiration for these tracks.Poor Adrian..


****UPDATE: All Too Well, A Little Taste, and Bad Reputation are NOT on Spotify*****

HOPE YOU GUYS ENJOY IT AND LISTEN TO SOME OF THESE SONGS THE END :)

Prompt #55 : Things you said under your breath

For: @straight-to-county

Rick rocks into Michonne with a great need; pushing himself deeper and deeper into her abyss just because he needs to. Sweat springs up on their skin as he thrusts into her in the back of the old van. They should be looking for supplies, but she looked so damn good today. He kisses her feverishly as she wraps her legs around his waist, linking her ankles together as her heels dig into his lower back. She gasps suddenly, grasping at his hair and pulling harshly as he strokes that deep spot. He leans back, just to watch her. Her eyes are closed, her mouth open as she pants, her beautiful breasts bouncing with his movements. Sweat beads in the valley between her breasts and he licks her clean, grunting as the sweet saltiness of her invades his mouth.

Her feminine moans and gasps and grunts drive him wild as he pounds into her. His need for her is animalistic. He reverts to the most primitive part of himself when he fucks her. He has no other priority, no other responsibility. He is single minded. His mind on one track when it comes to her. To make her quiver and squirm underneath him. To make her want to crawl out of her skin as she calls his name into the universe. To bring her pure, unadulterated, sweet, pleasure. His only duty is to make her banks flood with desire and quake with sweet eruptions. She deserves it. All of it. Every ounce of it. And he’s going to give it to her. Whenever he can; whenever she wants it.

Rick lifts her some from the floor of the van and throws her arms over his shoulders, encouraging her to wrap her fingers around his neck. He pushes his knees into the backs of her thighs and she starts to move with him, crashing down on him as his hips push to meet hers. She crushes her breasts and nipples into his slick chest as he leans them into a proper sitting position. She rests her elbows on his shoulders as she cocoons his head with her forearms and hands, her hair falling around them. Rick nuzzles his face into her neck as he squeezes her to him, reveling in the feeling of her hard, thick nipples sliding against his sticky chest.

Michonne throws her head back as she tightens her vaginal muscles around him, smirking devilishly as she feels him shudder from the pressure, “Fuckin’ shit baby,” He mumbles in a slur, his hot breath sticking to her sweaty skin.

She knows he loves fucking her but it’s her pleasure to fuck him all the same. His body is beautiful. Riddled with scars, old and new, telling stories of his heroics over the past two years. One old bullet wound, just under his shoulder, reminding him always of his time as a sheriff, as Lori’s husband, as Shane’s best friend. His scars are a map of a tough, gritty, emotional, loving, strong man; and her need for it, for his body, for his love, his attention, consumes every fiber of her. She loves it; the need. Never, has she ever had this feeling before. Not after the end of the world, and certainly not before it. He is the love of her life.

He drills into her relentlessly now, strong, hard, fast, and all she can do is hold on for dear life, “Ugh, God I love you.” She mutters under her breath, not entirely realizing what she’s said.

Her words are jumbled together, almost as if she has a mouth full of peanut butter but his ears pick her words apart with a great ease. He’s wanted to hear them for so long, but the devil deep inside of him tells him he doesn’t deserve them. But his body defies his devil as another tense shudder racks through him as the words stick to his skin. A grunt scratches at the back of his throat, sounding like a deep growl from a territorial, threatened lion defending what’s his. He bites down on her shoulder roughly and she squeals from the pleasurable pain that rips through her incredibly sensitive body. He dips his hand down to her thighs and pushes his fingers between her wet lips, finding her clit instantly. He rubs quick circles against her, adding to her lust, as he continues to thrust deep into her.

“Say it again.” He commands gruffly, his voice low and gritty, “Tell me you love me baby.”

She can’t even think, let alone form a sentence. She’s so close that he can taste it. She plasters her forehead to his as she bounces on top of him, each stroke pushing her closer and closer to the edge of her impending orgasm, “Tell me baby,” He whispers in her ear, his words washing over her like a waterfall, “Tell me you love me.”

“I love you.” The words are harsh and rushed as her hips begin to falter against his. She can’t take it anymore. But he still doesn’t hear her, not like the angel on his shoulder needs to. They were muttered and jumbled and slurred from ecstasy. He wants them loud and proud, heavy and full. Even though you don’t deserve them, his devil growls.

“Again.”

“I love you. God Rick! I love you, I love you.” She screams as his last thrust proves to be her undoing. She comes all around him, tightening her walls on him, coaxing him into his own release. His seed is hot, mixing with her own internal heat and the external rays from the sun, thrusting their temperatures to a stifling degree. Their breath is ragged as they release and then relax against one another. Her dark skin sticks to his, their sweat glinting in the sun as their hips involuntarily move slowly against one another. Rick lets his head rest against her breasts, pecking at her skin with sloppy, wet kisses as her chest rises and falls.

He raises his head, those bright blue eyes scanning her dark ones. He looks so beautiful in this natural light. His pink lips thick and swollen with passion, his dark, curly hair in his face as sweat drips from the ends, “I love you girl.” He mumbles under his breath, suddenly shy to say it out loud as the animal inside of him recedes back into the depths. His devil will not win today.

She smiles and lowers her lips to his, savoring the sweet kiss. She soon giggles against his mouth, letting him eat up the heavenly sound. She hums sweetly, swaying them back and forth slowly as the sunlight beats down on them in the back of that old rickety van. She knows it was hard for him to say it and that it might be hard for him to hear it after all of this. After the passion and lust is gone, after his animal is caged once again, and his devil is set free. When it’s just him and her, Rick and Michonne, it’ll be hard for him to hear it. When Negan looms over them, now that their hunger has been satisfied. It’ll be hard for him to hear it. He’s damaged. But that’s okay. She’ll love him anyway.

Why do you deny yourself heaven? Why do you consider yourself undeserving? Why are you afraid of love? You think it’s not possible for someone like you. But you are the love of my life. You are the love of my life.

 

You are the love of my life.
