Bad Days

Prompt:  Could you do platonic Moxiety with Virgil having a tough time and needing a cuddle but he doesn’t want to say anything but Patton gets it anyway? - @chris-specs (sorry for the delayed reply, friend, this one took a little longer than I thought)

Characters/Pairing: Moxiety (written platonic but can be read however you like)

Categories: Angst, hurt-comfort, negative self-talk

Thank you to @thuriweaver and @parsnipit for giving this a once-over for me!

For the most part, things really had been better since Virgil revealed his name.

The other sides had been doing their best to make him feel more welcome. They’d gone out of their way to include him, inviting him to more movie nights and involving him more during planning sessions for videos. They’d even deferred to him on a few points and altered their plans to take his concerns into account.

Of course, those are on Virgil’s good days. The days when he has things mostly under wraps, and the others find him tolerable. He has bad days, too, and those…

Well. It’s easy for them to say they’ll try to include him and make him feel heard when he’s at his best. Even he doesn’t mind himself so much, at his best.

He was not at his best today.

Ok, this was beyond fun, thank you, Anon!

Always glad to help! Finding new good music is a great thing. I don’t know how much doom you know so I’ll just list a bunch that I like. I will post the list (not in any order, all kinds of doom), so that perhaps, some others will add to it. Cheers! :)

A Daughter’s Lament

You could have loved me,
The way my skin was just as brown,
As the amber glow of the sunless city
Where you birthed me.

You could have loved me,
The way the flickering low wattage
Light bulbs always broke beneath my fingers,
You didn’t raise me to be so clumsy hearted.

Though, you could have loved me,
The way oceans sloshed from my tear ducts,
The way singing sounds like crying
If you don’t listen close enough.

You could have loved me.
The way my skin is the same color
Of the drink you love,
My smile just as intoxicating.

You could have loved me,
The way my callused fingers shattered glass
far better than your drunken stumble
danced around rhythmlessly.

You could have loved me,
The sorrow in my voice echoed
in the silence you wanted drowned.
You chose not to listen.

You chose the color of wheat,
A shade of brown I could never be.
I went seeking sunlight,
And you decided not to love me.

You chose broken light switches,
The way starless skies spun,
And 40 watts burned a dingy orange
over bandaged fingertips.

You chose confinement in a solitary sea,
Of frothy brown water, too salty to drink.
And the sound of waves clapping
Against the cliffs from which you hung me.

Cold Water

SONG of the DAY _ Cold Water ~ Tom Waits - from “Mule Variations” (1999)

Well I woke up this morning with the cold water
With the cold water, with the cold water
Woke up this morning with the cold water
With the cold water, with the cold

Well the police at the station and they don’t look friendly
Well they don’t look friendly, well they don’t look friendly
Police at the station and they don’t look friendly
Well they don’t look friendly, well they don’t

Blind or crippled, sharp or dull
I’m reading the Bible by a 40 watt bulb
What price freedom, dirt is my rug
Well I sleep like a baby with the snakes and the bugs
Well I …

Stores are open but I ain’t got no money
I ain’t got no money, well I ain’t got no money
Stores are open but I ain’t got no money
Well I ain’t got no money, well I ain’t

Found an old dog and he seems to like me
Seems to like me, well, he seems to like me
Found an old dog and he seems to like me
Well he seems to like me, well he seems

Seen them fellows with the cardboard signs
Scrapin’ up a little money to buy a bottle of wine
Pregnant women and the Vietnam vets
I say beggin’ on the freeway ‘bout as hard as it gets

Well I slept in the graveyard, it was cool and still
Cool and still, it was cool and still
Slept in the graveyard, it was cool and still
Cool and still and it was cool

Slept all night in a Cedar grove
I was born to ramble, born to rove
Some men are searchin’ for the Holy Grail
But there ain’t nothin’ sweeter than ridin’ the rails

I look forty-seven but I’m twenty-four
Well they shooed me away from here the time before
Turned their backs and they locked their doors
I’m watchin’ TV in the window of a furniture store

And I woke up this morning with the cold water
With the cold water, with the cold water
I woke up this morning with the cold water
With the cold water, with the cold

Well I woke up this morning with the cold water
Cold water, with the cold water
Woke up this morning with the cold water
Cold water, with the cold

How to Take Care of Russian Tortoise

So, long ago when I just got my tortoises, I realized people have no idea of how to properly take care of these little things in order to avoid diseases and all other kind of unpleasant stuff. People think tortoise don’t really demand much care, but they actually do! What I’m going to talk about does 100% apply to Russian Tortoises; however, I believe it can also work for alike kinds, but I still suggest to double check. 

You should have:

• A terrarium. Your tortoise should not be on the floor or any other places but it’s terrarium, as it is pretty cold for it on the floor and you can also occasionally step on it. In addition, being on the floor all the time leads to deformation of tortoise’s nails (they get crooked). It should be in a warm place (don’t put terrarium on the windowsills, so as tortoise might catch a cold). If you can’t get a real glass terrarium, you can get just a big plastic box from Walmart or any other place. 

• 2 lamps: heating and UV. As long as tortoise’s shells need calcium, they need sunlight, but it is not always possible to spend 12 hours per day outside with the pet. At this point, UVB lamps 10.0% should be provided. It is suggested to change UV lamp at least once per year. Heating lamps should be 40-60 watt. Both lamps should be open for 12 hours.

• Base. Base layer should be at least 10 cm. It is better to use mix of hay and pressed sawdust. DO NOT USE sand or soil, because it’s not good for tortoise to be in this dust. 

You should do:

• Bath. You should give your tortoise a bath at least once per week for 30-15 minutes. (Check video on my profile for more details). Temperature should not be lower than 30 degrees celsius and not higher than 35 (use special water thermometer which you can get in baby’s section in any store). 

Why it takes so long? The thing is, that you should give your tortoise time to drink (they absorb water through skin) and also to relieve themselves. Don’t forget to change water once they did it and to dry them with soft towel after bath (✿◠‿◠)   

• Food. You DON’T have to feed your tortoise every day. As long as they are no longer in their natural habitant, (where they actually eat around once per week), they don’t walk much, but eat a lot, which can lead to obesity. With that said, it is better to give them food once in 2 or 3 days. 

What is better to feed them with? Lettuce, pumpkin, red pepper, carrots, dill, dandelions. Make mix of, for example, lettuce, pumpkin and carrots. From time to time you can treat them with apples, but be careful, don’t give too much, otherwise it will lead to gastric problems. Make sure all foods are warm (not right from the fridge)!

NEVER FEED TORTOISE WITH HUMAN FOOD (milk, cheese, meat, bread, whatever else you can find on your table). Tomatoes and cabbages are also BAD for them.     

• Cut nails and beak. Since you’ve noticed your tortoise has nails that give it hard times moving, or a beak that does not allow it to eat, means that it’s time to cut it a bit. Usually there is no need to cut a beak in couple of years and you are supposed to cut nails once in about half of the year. Often there is no need to cut a beak if you feed your tortoise right, but if you think it’s too big, it is suggested to do so.

Helpful videos on how to cut nails and beak (sorry, there are no good videos in English):

Beak: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-P8NCdkFtCY&feature=youtu.be

Nails: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzQbdEkdlQ0&feature=youtu.be

If you don’t feel comfortable doing this, ask a vet for help _〆(。。)

• Go for a walk. In summer, when the temperature is higher than 20 celsius, it is good to take your tortoise for a walk, so it can enjoy real sun and eat some fresh plants. But be careful and don’t lose your pet ʘ︵ʘ

More important things:

• Tortoise SHOULD NOT go into hibernation. Even though in their natural habitant they do, while living in captive they should be active all year round! If they will sleep in wintertime it might be dangerous for their health. 

If you noticed your tortoise wants to go into hibernation, try to give it a bath more often (like 3 times per week).

• DO NOT color their shells and DO NOT smear it with anything.

• Try to keep them away from contact with other animals, so as it gives tortoise lots of stress. 

• Vets don’t always know how to treat tortoises properly, so it is better to double check on the internet if you got any suggestions or if you got any medication prescribed to your tortoise.

I hope it was helpful, and don’t hesitate to ask questions if you have any ◕ ◡ ◕

How many sides does it take to screw in a light bulb

Hey sorry I haven’t been on too much, I’m moving into my college dorm in less than a week and I’ve been packing and getting everything ready. So I won’t be on to much since I’ll be running around doing that. But this happened today and I just had to share it and what better way to share a story that put my favorite characters in it and write it as a fanfic. So that what I did, Virgil is me Logan is my brother and the bit for Patton is my mom. Also like 95% of this stories is what happened there a little bit of editing to make it fit with them and I did a lot more packing then virgil did but just about all that here is what happened. And Virgil’s ringtone is my ringtone it is great.

I made a butterfly ceiling lamp shade for myself over weekend and thought I’d share some brief instructions on how to make one yourself :D

Now before I start, I want to clarify that paper lamp shades are safe from fire if you use 40 watt compact florescent bulbs and leave an inch or more of space between the paper and the bulb. Make sure there are openings at the top of the bulb to allow ventilation. I’ve used that other two origami lamps for many years and never had any fire problems. The paper is barely warm after hours of use. But just to be safe, you should always test out your paper lamp shade and touch the paper closest to the bulb after a few hours of use to see if it’s too hot. 

Now to make the butterfly lamp shade, you’ll need an old metal coat hanger, some regular paper, string, glue, and tape. 


1. Bend the coat hanger into a circle
2. Cut out butterflies of various sizes on regular paper. (Fold the paper in half and cut out half a butterfly to create symmetrical wings)
3. Tape the largest butterflies to the coat hanger
4. Glue strings to the remaining butterflies
5. After the glue is dry, tie the strings to the coat hanger at various length until you have a flock of butterflies 
6. Put coat hanger over existing lamp shade and you’re done! :D

- For the lotus lamp, I just followed this youtube tutorial and modified it a bit to fit the lamp shade. I used bigger paper and less pedals per tier. 

- The round origami lamp is just a really big Arabesque Kusudama. Here’s a youtube tutorial for how to make one. Make sure to use much bigger paper than the ones in the tutorial for the lamp shades. There are many variations of kusudamas out there to choose from but be sure to pick one that has openings for ventilation. 

Have fun! :) 

You have enough electricity inside you to power a 40 watt light bulb for 24 hours, so why aren’t the firefly like embers in your eyes glowing? Are you really going to allow a person to steal your ability to light up your own life?
—  Nikita Gill
Creepypasta #829: Final Girl

Length: Long

My life is neatly divided into before that night and after that night.

I awoke to the sound of light scratching and tapping on the living room window that night. I had fallen asleep on the couch, lulled by the late night Halloween horrorfest on Netflix. OK, fine – maybe lulled by a few beers and some weed, too. Sheesh.

What are you, a narc?

Anyway.

My mindset was already on open tombs and other standard horror tropes, so at first I thought the noise coming from the window was the remnant of some Hammer-Horror induced dream starring Christopher Plummer. But it was real, it was there. It was accompanied by a sibilant hiss that gave me a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach and made the hair stand up on my arms.

I’ve seen enough horror movies to know what you don’t do in these situations. The red-shirt idiots (fine, I’m mixing my genres – piss off, narc) always end up investigating the creepy sound, usually without a flashlight, and always without a weapon.

And then they go have sex.

So, I did a few things:

1.    I grabbed my boyfriend’s brighter-than-he-is flashlight (which he dubbed Mary Lou Retina after I told him mine were in danger when he shone it in my face)

2.    I took the mace out of my purse. I know, not a weapon per-se, but my phase-plasma rifle in the 40-watt range was in the shop (shut up, narc).

3.    I didn’t have sex.

That last part was easy, since my boyfriend was visiting his parents in the Catskills while I catsat his cat, Killer. (Like you could catsit anything else).

Opening the front door, I was relieved to see the smiling face of my boyfriend, who I’d assumed had come home a night early from his parent’s snoozefest of a house to aid me in undoing #3 from my list above. Boy, was I wrong.

The shitty part is…I kinda caused what happened. I invited him in.

I don’t want to blame the victim here, but since the victim is me, I guess it’s OK.

It’s like they always say – vampires have to be invited in or they’re powerless, and I went and did it. The fact that he broke the vampire code of conduct, if there is such a thing, by pretending to be my boyfriend, is neither here nor there.

I’m a vampire now, and I guess I’m going to stay that way.

After it was done, in the vampire equivalent of wham-bam-thank-you-for-your-blood-ma’am, he was gone. I didn’t even learn his name.

Typical.

In my defense, I did get a good squirt of mace in his face, but I’ve also learned that mace doesn’t work on vampires. Make a note of it, girls. Learn from my fail.

Anyway.

Now, Killer and I are waiting here for my (real) boyfriend to arrive.

Eternity is a long time (like, forever, I’ve heard) and I don’t want to spend it alone.
