the writing's on the wall

What do you make of the very awkward denial Louis made? Does it affect your guess on whether theyre still together, given the obvious way it was set up... trying after years to normalise the LH separation? To me it felt weak and coerced when it could have been vicious. Because why would Sony force it if it wasnt meant to be a killer blow to Larries? Then again suddenly Eleanor is front & centre, talked about like Liam constantly name-checked about Cheryl, only.. people know who Cheryl is.

Hey anon! 

I have no strong thoughts on it. I don’t understand the point of bringing up Larry when he has a girlfriend and a kid, but I also know that all of the men’s team use Dan Wootton.

It doesn’t make me feel any differently about the possibility they’ve broken up, because it’s the same party line. It also doesn’t change my belief that Louis isn’t straight, because my thinking Louis isn’t straight doesn’t depend on Harry.

What I find more curious, I guess, is the continued freedom to talk about Harry–which started, in my opinion, way back at the birthday tweet (and is probably why and when I started to wonder if they broke up).

That continued talk about Harry breaking up the band–in not so many words–is interesting to me. Niall and Louis have both said it would be stupid for 1D to not come back, and Dan’s article and Louis’ comments (however real or coerced or made up the quotes are) basically set it up so if the band doesn’t come back, it’s because of Harry.

I also find it interesting that “always you” (another thing that made me think breakup) is apparently the name of his favorite song.

Again, I make no claims on the state of their relationship, but I find the repeated name dropping a weird switch that doesn’t actually feel like a “positive” sign to me. I’m yet again a big ass shrug.

Oh–I do think it’s good Louis doesn’t want to go into acting. Because oh baby, no.

i tore down the walls of my heart for you because i thought you wanted to come in, but all you did was linger outside only to leave in the end.

Lovecraft talk: Aku, Ashi’s wraith form and the Beast in OTGW and why they look the same

A lot of y’all are comparing Ashi’s wraith form with the appearance of the Beast from Over the Garden Wall. I’m not an expert in Lovecraftian horror, and it actually won’t take a lot to explain why these designs look alike, but instead of going into painstaking detail about it in this post I’ll just provide some links below:

HERE is where I mentioned that Aku is a direct reference to the outer god Nyarlathotep. Some folks were kind enough to support that claim and I’m sure they and many others noticed it already far before I did.

HERE is where I mentioned the Beast from OTGW also as a direct reference to Nyarlathotep. It’s a long read but dig hard enough and you’ll find it there.

To add to this, here’s a picture of Nyarlathotep. Looks like Aku’s tower and shadowy tentacles, right? But there’s more to that.

Here’s a picture of it, closer, along with the real form of the Beast. Notice the faces on their bodies, and the fact that Nyarlathotep is sometimes referred to as the ‘faceless god’, and that he considered humans his toys. Because, man, think about it, of all places, why does Aku settle on Earth? And why hasn’t he destroyed us already? He destroys other world but not ours. That’s because we have too much value to him as playthings. I mean just consider the obvious fact that he’s fucked with Jack’s head enough times to disturb him for several lifetimes. This is what the Beast literally did to the Huntsman in OTGW. Aku has little to no actual interest in physically destroying Jack and the rest of humanity because without us he’s bored as shit. He’s even bored out of his fucking mind without his favorite toy to mess with, Jack.

Also notice this reoccurring theme of trees and birth and children. And I’ll only mention Ashi once. It’s not a mere coincidence that Aku or the Beast and even Nyarlathotep have the physical attributes of…how the Scotsman words it, a tree ogre. The Beast was a literal demon tree made out of the remains of children, and it was blatantly shown in the show how the children even transformed into eldritch abominations, the edelwood trees, before being consumed by the Beast. And they bled black blood which served as the oil for the lantern. Note it, BLACK. Jack was born when his father banished Aku and cursed him into the ground as a darkened wooden stump. Ashi was born out of the murky tar-like tree sap that came from Aku after her mother imbibed it into her system. So it’s no question Ashi’s wraith form or whatever you wanna call it would take the same physical attributes as her father. You can even say she’s a demi-god or a kin of the cosmos because of this. Even in the video game Bloodborne, the Moon Presence who inhabits the nightmare realm, makes its appearance near the nightmare image of the Great Tree in the city of Yharnam. And as if the ideas of cosmic horrors, trees, and birthing children in line with the existence of eldritch gods aren’t fucked up enough especially with how it all seems like a gross parallel to the idea of the Tree of Life in the Book of Genesis in the Bible, here’s a bunch of examples of the human placenta. GODDAMN it looks like a tree.

Lastly, and this is probably just me geeking out over and celebrating Samurai Jack, Bloodborne and H.P. Lovecraft altogether. Here’s a side-by-side picture of the lunar eclipse that freed Aku from his banishment and a picture of the Moon Presence in Bloodborne when it makes its appearance shortly after the blood moon surfaced. Fuckin A this is all some refined spooky shit and I love it. It’d be bullshit to call this a coincidence at this point.

That’s all. I hope you guys enjoyed reading.
