On the eleventh day of Christmas, Studio Ghibli gave to me eleven cats parading

Things the MCR albums remind me of

Bullets: Dead roses, torn wedding gowns, foggy mornings, shouting when you’re angry, angst, dimly lit rooms, black and greasy hair, dreadlocks, porcelain dolls, sketch pads, sketching pencils

Revenge: Red and black, red flowers of any kind, coffins, ciggarettes, old churches, black widow spiders, black ballet slippers, red eyeshadow, black glitter, torn skinny jeans, clear nights, full moons, graveyards, horror movies, demons

Black Parade: Hospital rooms, heart monitors, IV drips, pale skin, being cold to the touch, black and white striped arm warmers, nightmares, ghosts, being sick, wanting to give up, but continuing to press on, wheelchairs, blood transfusions, lethargy, medicine

Danger Days: Bright and vivid color, living in the moment, muscle cars, large cities, any 50s diner, hot days and cold nights, laying next to someone you love, giving your all in relationships, leather jackets, steel toe boots, neon lights, energy drinks.

WHAT PROBABLY HAPPENED BEHIND THE SCENES IN ANGEL

*spike and angel are arguing, as usual*

Gunn: WOULD YOU TWO JUST FUCK ALREADY

scream it ‘cause i know you mean it // listen here

all I see is black and white in the darkness of the night, and I’ve been chasing angels all my life. and now that heaven is on fire and the world’s technicolor. oh, I’ll be chasing angels all my life.

Say it with me now

Just because they have oddly shaped/ coloured eyes does not make them a host

I JUST… since watching the episode and getting a glimpse into the Nightmare Realm, I just REALLY want these demons to come parading out of there. I want a whole wild animation sequence where you just see one bizarre demon after another stepping out of the Nightmare Realm onto Earth. I keep imaging similar visuals to “Be prepared” from the Lion King…. (someone draw Bill hanging out with his nightmare realm party buddies plz)

Tell them how easy it is to roll over
in the comfort of a warm heartbeat
gently throbbing your shaking bones
back into melancholic nightmares.

No one tells the truth.
We parade demons in pink dresses
as princesses and princes
and expect the camouflage
to gently fade into happiness.

You’ll lie awake and not know how to scream.
The fever will spike and your skin will freeze.
You’ll want out. Peel the lies off.

I’m telling you; its easy to roll over
in the comfort of a warm heartbeat
gently throbbing your shaking bones
back into melancholic nightmares.
