there are only so many colors in the world

Color Correspondences

As an artist I found color correspondences on this site to be so USEFUL, except they’re missing so much! The more I dug the more it seemed that way across the board. I didn’t feel for my practice that bright red and dark red evoked the same reaction, so I opted to make my own correspondence list. 

Every color on this doc was carefully selected to be representative of that “group” of colors, ie. bright pink or neon blue, with each color including an hex code that best sums up that color group. Color correspondences were taken not only from pre-existing materials, but from research (still ongoing) surrounding that color. This includes areas the color is found in nature, art or the world, as well as emotional responses evoked in myself.  Found Here (My Correspondences Doc, which includes many sources used for colors!)

For my practice this list is used across candles, fiber and art.

We are celebrating two years of #Blackout creating visibility for Black creatives.

Allow us to introduce you to @trapdisco, the talent behind @petragraphy.

Petra, on her work and journey: 

“I’m Petra Shrieves, a 20 year old, self taught, New York City based photographer. I was born and raised in the city, and though it’s an art filled place, I didn’t become fully invested in photography or art at all until I was 15. During my tough times in high school, I turned to my camera, and thus, Petragraphy was born. Petragraphy is the balance of reality and surrealism, the dream state that clings to you when you’re on the brink of waking, Petragraphy is the vision so many artists are afraid of. In a world filled with forced minimalism, I only want to inspire those to find the color. To seek out the vibrancy in life and share it with the rest of the world.”

We salute your talent and celebrate your Black Excellence Petra!

low-key upset how so many su fans, myself included, spent hours and hours of time designing gemsonas that represent their gem and creating backstories for them so they would fit into the world su has built, only for the crewniverse to churn out such disgustingly bad designs for canon characters.

like I’m sorry but, to me, this

resembles aquamarine a lot more than this 

who essentially has the same color palette as Lapis (another water-based gem with water wings and a teardrop shaped gem…….crewniverse come on you went to art school)

i’m not saying my design is the best–I’ve never studied design and I’m self-taught when it comes to art, but I certainly feel like more thought has been put into my aqua’s design than the crew’s and that riles me up. and please, don’t get me started on how she looks like a flattened emoji and how they made yet another thousand-year-old character look like a child.

Little Space Apps

  • PakkaPets- you hatch pets and raise them while doing quests and building a village. You can feed, bathe, and play with them.
  • Neko Atsume - you buy stuff to collect and attract cats. There is only one expansion but I love it!
  • Kleptocats - you collect items from your cats to decorate rooms and you can buy stuff for your cats (like crowns and glasses). There are mini games and multiple rooms.
  • Alpaca World - you collect and breed alpacas that fight each other. (Not nearly as violent as it sounds) you can decorate them with stuff you’ve won or bought and they come in so many colors! There are multiple upgrades to make more room, make their wool grow faster, make them heal faster, etc.
  • Color Switch - it’s more challenging than the other games but basically it’s all color based and super fun. I honestly don’t know how to summarize this one. Lol
  • Pou - you take care of a creature called Pou by bathing, feeding, clothing, and playing with it!
  • Penguin Life - you collect penguins by playing games and feeding them.
  • Hamster Life - basically penguin Life but with hamsters.
  • FeeDog - I haven’t really figured this one out yet but it cute and fun to play.
  • Cat Room - you collect cats, decorate rooms, and feed them.

I am sorry the descriptions got shorter at the end, after I posted it cut off half of what I wrote. I will probably go back over it later.

These are some of the games I play while in little space on my phone. I have an IPhone so I don’t know if theses are available to other platforms but I suggest looking into them, they are really cute, easy, and fun to play. Please feel free to leave a suggestion or add on to the list!

Enjoy! 💕

I’m going to do what I never do and share my opinion about an issue that is very popular in fandom, but that unfortunately, it’s not treated with the importance and respect it should: the lack of equal representation for same-sex couples in Shadowhunters.

Throughout season 2a and the few episodes of 2b, many of us have manifested our anger, disappointment and even talked about stop watching to show all together due to the treatment that has been given to the—until now—only same-sex couple in the show: Malec.

When it comes to defending the show and giving the writers and producers a chance to prove us wrong, I’m always the first in line trying to convince my fellow fans that we have to be patient and wait to see how the story unfolds. I’m aware that sometimes as fandom, we tend to make a tempest in a teacup and blow things out of proportion, however, it’s become more and more clear that no matter how much we wait, sadly, Malec won’t get the same treatment as the opposite-sex couples do.

I know that some people will say that there are still 7 episodes left of the second half of the season and that a lot of things could still happen, but unfortunately, what the show has failed to deliver is there, and it’s a huge problem that for some reason some fans and the people behind the show have refused to address.

When we [the malec fandom] talk about equal representation in the show we aren’t talking about wanting to see two naked men fooling around in bed or having 20 minutes-long scenes per episode just between them because we only care about malec and the rest of the characters don’t matter. No, we’re talking about a balance between same-sex and opposite-sex couples—that’s all.

The show can have moments where “straight” couples fool around in bed or wake up together, they can have these same couples showing affection in public and having long conversations to connect, but when it comes to Malec all we get are a few on screen seconds (yes, we’re counting them) and “fade to black” moments.

That, my people, isn’t fair. In fact, it’s offensive and shows that even with a GLAAD award for “outstanding representation” of the LGBT+ community in a Drama Series dusting on their shelves, Shadowhunters can still be repressive and encourage censorship.

I’m sorry, but I’m just stating the truth.

Anyway, with this I’m not saying that the show has done everything wrong because they haven’t. Malec has had great moments, hence why so many of us are still here watching the show every week and hoping to be pleasantly surprised, but if those moments had received the same treatment that has been given to the ones shared by the other couples, then we wouldn’t be talking about great moments, but epic.

I don’t know if the people behind the show are aware of how groundbreaking Malec is for the community, but I sincerely hope they realize it soon because what they have in their hands is unique. They have the opportunity not only to give a lot of people the voice and representation that they’ve lacked for years, but to give them, us, an opportunity to show the rest of the world that love comes in many forms and that despite what society has made them believe, there’s nothing wrong with it.

Love is the purest feeling there is and we need to stop repressing it. These two characters deserve the chance to show the world (and the shadow world) that when you love someone, race, color, religion, creed, sex, sexual orientation or gender identity don’t matter. Love is love, man! 

So yeah, #MalecDeservesBetter and I’ll stand for #EqualRepForAll until we see the change we deserve 🏳️‍🌈

happy (late) 18th birthday to my majo bun aka @jungnoir! i figured i might as well write out your fantasies for jiji!yoongi, and even though this is late i hope this mini monster makes up for it. ilysm bb! <3


Desires take form in dreams, in wishes. They’re the sorts of things that cause trouble for people, because sometimes they’ll spend endless days and nights trying to get a taste. It’s akin to ambrosia—a gift from the gods above, like a nectar not just of the sweetest affirmations but the tangy bursts of tangibility. It’s there. Right in the center of calloused palms is a fallen petal from the cherry blossom tree in winter. But, that’s the thing. This is something so fleeting and so potent for the weak-hearted. It’s all hard to believe anyone can get it because as all things do, they fall.

Or, more or less, land uncomfortably.

49 years ago the world lost a beautiful treasure. Forever the epitome of beauty and grace, Dorothy Jean Dandridge was in a league of her own. With a legacy that continues to live on, it is my sincerest hope that my dearest Dottie is at peace knowing that all the trials and tribulations that she endured have not gone in vain. We owe an immense amount of gratitude to this angel for breaking down countless barriers and opening up so many doors for not only women of color in the entertainment industry, but all women of color period. Thank you, my beautiful Queen.

distracted

I feel like I’m losing a part of myself to distraction.  The world around me–especially the electronic world–is so full of stimuli that I crave.  There’s so many bright colors to look at, so many videos where the punchline arrives in 30 seconds or less, so many handy little chunks of information.  So many opportunities to feel rage or awe or laughter, but only for a moment, a little flash of the emotion before I’m on to the next thing.  And increasingly I’m eating the Internet like potato chips, always taking a few more nibbles, never having a full meal of thought.

It’s becoming a compulsion, and I don’t like it.  It’s stealing my ability to sit down and think.

This isn’t a “old man shakes fist at cloud” post where I say this is a wholly bad thing, or ought not to exist.  Human creativity is beautiful, and that includes all the potato-chip, easily consumed creativity.  I don’t blame these things for existing.

I just wish I could get lost in a book again.  I can still read, but it’s very… read a page, check Reddit, check Tumblr, read a page, watch a YouTube clip, read a page, decide to put a Netflix video on in the background because I can’t deal with silence anymore…

I would like to invite silence back into my life.

I would like to read a book and see the sights, hear the voices, because that book is the only thing in my mind.

I would like to start a project and work on it all day without thinking “I wonder if anything really groundbreaking has been posted on Reddit in the last 45 seconds?  I MUST KNOW.”

The good news is, I know this can change.  I know that I actually love moments when I’m not hyperstimulated, but it’s very hard for me to initiate those moments.  So I’m going to try and work on this gradually.  If I can go even five minutes today without grabbing for distractions, I’ll call that a win, and try for ten minutes tomorrow.

It feels so boring and lonely to cut myself off from the constant flow of beauty and information.

It feels like fighting to get a piece of myself back.

I woke up this morning to the news that a gunman had opened fire on hundreds of innocent civilians. As you’d expect, I was heartbroken, angry, and upset. As I watched the news, I felt a horrible sinking feeling in my gut: it was deja vu. I had been in this exact situation before.

A year and a half ago i woke up to a lazy day in the middle of summer. It seemed that nothing could go wrong - until it did. I turned my tv on to find what was deemed the deadliest mass shooting in history being covered in every news channel. It was immediately deemed terrorism, as it was an act of hate to unarmed civilians. I was horrified that such things still happened. I was horrified that gun control laws weren’t immediately being created within the aftermath.

This was the exact feeling I experienced today.

I went on twitter to see if I could find news of gun control laws being made, but all I could find were thoughts and prayers. This truly upset me. How can you pray for an end to hate but never let it happen? How can you express your disgust for such an event but do nothing to prevent it from happening again? How can you be so upset about something like this, then inevitably let it go after a week?

The Bible says that you can only achieve what you pray for by acting on what you want. If you prayed for peace in our world, then be an advocate for peace. Spread awareness. Support the creation of gun control laws. Express your concerns to the public. Be a bright change in a dark, constant society.

I’d like to lastly point out that, before the gunman was identified as a white male, many immediately blamed the event on poc. People immediately recognized the gunman as a terrorist. However, when the news got out that a white man had opened fire, people started to change their wording. “Lone wolf gunman”, “Male”, never acknowledging that a WHITE MAN had been responsible for the deadliest shooting in U.S. history. When did the color of one’s skin determine the weapon in one’s hand? The thought was put there by the media. Change that. Acknowledge that this white man is a terrorist by definition. Remind everyone that white people have done evil to this world many times, and this is only one example.

Act.

Speak out.

Educate.

Super content ^^

hufflebee  asked:

prompt: alec finding out pride month is a thing, that gay clubs exist and asks magnus is they could go to one (bc alec finding out about safe lgbt+ spaces makes me so happy)

“all month?”

“yes, for the third time, all month!” magnus laughed at the ecstatic, almost goofy smile on alec’s face as they sat on the couch facing each other, magnus’ arms around alec’s neck and alec’s hands running up and down his sides in a soothing and comforting way.

"so it’s like….one big party,” alec chewed on his lip in a way that magnus found adorable, his brow furrowed as he thought it all out. “one big, happy, proud party.”

magnus’ smile was as soft as the sound of wind chimes. “yes, my love. it’s where you can celebrate who you are with people who understand and accept you and love you. but ‘party’ is too meager of a word to describe pride. it’s….well, it’s a time to rejoice, to look at the world and say this is who I am and everyone around me loves me for that and even though pride month is only, of course, one month long, that pride and happiness does not go away. you meet so many wonderful people there and it’s colorful and there’s so much unity and love and joy in the air that you feel like you can fly.”

alec was quiet for a second, but the smile on his face and the hope in his eyes was louder than words could ever be. “can we go?” he asked and magnus almost swooned at how beautiful he looked in that moment. he chuckled warmly and rested his forehead against alec’s.

"of course, darling. i’ll hold your hand the entire time and kiss you lots because I want the world to know that you are my beautiful boyfriend,” he kissed alec on both cheeks and poked one of them with his finger. “i could paint a rainbow flag on your cheek when we go, if you want. and we could invite everyone else to go, too.”

“ i would like that. i want to go with just you first, though. so we can be together and i can show you off,” alec said mischievously and nuzzled magnus’ cheek as his boyfriend laughed, his warm breath tickling his skin.

“i want my first pride to be with you so it can be about just us. so i can be proud of you and all you have been through, of us and what we’ve accomplished together, and of me and how far i’ve come to be who i am today. but yeah, i’d love to go with everyone someday.” alec pulled magnus in for a kiss, humming against his lips and tasting of mint and something so sweet and familiar and alec .

"i still have to take you to a gay club someday. i think you would love it.” magnus added thoughtfully when he pulled away and alec’s eyes were as huge as saucers.

"there are gay clubs, too?! that’s so amazing, beyond amazing!!!!! tell me all about them!!!!! is there one nearby that we can go too? what are they like? this is fantastic, magnus! wow, i’ve regained hope in mundanes.” alec replied breathlessly and magnus giggled, already murmuring “yes” against alec’s lips as he repeated the phrase “can we go?” at least ten times before their mouths met for a loving and tender kiss.

Do you want to talk about our Lord and Savior Sunset Shimmer?

Of course you do what kind of question is that? Anyway… I’ll be talking about a subject that’s been speculated on the surface by many, but never deeply delved into: Sunset Shimmer’s design change.

Everyone should know by now that between Rainbow Rocks and Friendship Games, Sunset’s hair changed color. Namely, the red slightly desaturated and the yellow paled a lot in comparison. Sure, most people wrote it off as “the character designers wanted to put out color choices that were more pleasing to the eye”, and I believed that for a long while. But then, while rewatching the original Equestria Girls, I noticed something.

Now, being an artist and animator, I’ll pick visual elements apart until they can’t be picked apart anymore, and then I’ll pick them apart again and again. Now, in the first movie, we caught a glimpse of Pony!Sunset Shimmer. However, we didn’t see a single rendition of her in the light, only in darkness. So naturally, I’m sure many people just assumed that in the light, her hair would just be the same color as it is in the human world. But, upon looking closer:

They’re clearly not the same shade of yellow in the dark. Using the color picker, I masked the screenshot of Human!Sunset with the same shade of blue that DHX (presumably) used in the first image. The reds and eyes matched up almost identical, the only main difference being skin vs coat color, but all of the EQG characters have lighter skin tones than their pony counterparts, so it makes sense that the same would apply to Sunset.

However, this means DHX knew what they were doing from the start. Sunset’s hair changing color wasn’t just a design change - it meant something. Even the comics took that into play.

My theory is that when Sunset transferred herself to the Mirror World, the darkness in her heart took a physical effect on her. I mean, it’s been done before - may I remind you of Nightmare Moon? Magic does stuff to ya, it’s canon. It didn’t do much, not nearly as much as NMM, possibly because while she was doing it she knew deep down she was wrong? Or maybe she wasn’t fully consumed because… Underneath all of this she was sort of being protected by the Elements of Harmony - nature knew she’d one day create her own Element, Empathy? I dunno!

But yeah, like many others I believe this song was the turning point to her physical change - would’ve been cool if it changed during the song, imagine how rad that would be. Maybe DHX is still trying to hide something from us. Or, y’know, it’s always possible I’m reading too much into this. But my main point of this was…

This was planned.

They planned this.

It wasn’t just a write-off design change, this is legitimately canon.

THECLEXA FANFIC MASTER LIST

As you may (or may not) know, a few months ago I embarked on a journey to create a document for the Clexa fandom that would serve as a resource for those of you who enjoy reading fanfiction about our favorite lesbian warlord and bisexual space leader (and any AU personas they may take on…). Today, with much help along the way from the best co-captain and technology wizard ever  (@ayokidd), WE ARE EXCITED TO RELEASE THE FIRST DRAFT OF THIS DOCUMENT! (Containing over 600 completed fics!)

Please continue reading for the download link, as well as more information on how to use the document!

It’s a good thing you all love reading so much, because this post is quite long…but hopefully informative!.


Check out Clexarkives or keep reading to access The Clexa Fanfic Master List!!


What is the Clexa Fanfic Master List?

The Clexa Fanfic Master List is an on-going Microsoft Excel document that will eventually contain ALL completed Clexa and Lexark fanfiction - categorized, organized, hyperlinked, and listed all in one exportable document for your reading and fic-tracking pleasure! YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT…all 5,000+ fics (or whatever the final tally is!) will eventually be included! The document will be periodically updated and re-released as more fics are added to it over time. This will all be located on our blog @clexarkives, where you can find the frequently updated Master List and some other cool features.

How do I access the Clexa Fanfic Master List?

You need Microsoft Excel (or a program that opens Excel files) to access the document. You can download the document by clicking this link here. This link will take you to Google Drive where you can download the file and open it on your computer.

DO NOT view the document in Google Drive - the hyperlinks won’t work! YOU MUST DOWNLOAD AND OPEN THE DOCUMENT IN MICROSOFT EXCEL. We are also working on a Google Sheets version of the document for anyone unable to access the document through Excel or a similar program. Hang tight!

Once you download the document, save to your desktop and enjoy!

What fics are/will be included in the Clexa Fanfic Master List?

The Clexa Fanfic Master List will only include completed fics (it is simply impossible to keep updating such a large document with individual fic updates…we’ll leave that to the internet). We are, however, keeping track of current on-going fics and these will be added to the document as they are completed. Unfortunately, any fics that have been started but abandoned (author has no plans to finish or hasn’t updated for an extremely extended period of time) will not be included (unless they are one day completed) because I’m sorry but my heart can’t take that kind of investment and let down.

How is the Clexa Fanfic Master List organized?

The entire document functions as one large Excel workbook. There are four main sections, accessible from the Table of Contents:

1) Master List: contains a list of all the fics in the workbook, organized alphabetically by author
2) Canon: contains fics set in the canon universe, organized by ‘Season 2’, ‘Season 3’, and ‘Canon Divergent’
3) AU Categories: contains fics set in alternate universes, organized by specific categories (ie., ‘Enemies to Lovers’, ‘Teacher/student’, ‘Fake Dating’, etc.)
4) Smut: contains sexy time fics, organized by specific categories (ie., ‘Fluffy Smut’, “Strap On’, ‘3x07’, etc.)

How do I navigate the Clexa Fanfic Master List?

The entire document is hyperlinked to make navigation as easy as possible. You can click through individual tabs if you so desire, but we HIGHLY SUGGEST using the hyperlinks to navigate through the workbook.

Navigating within a main section:

The Table of Contents contains four main sections, or pages (as described above). Clicking on each of these sections will bring you to the page set up for that specific section.

Example 1: If you click the “Canon” section from the Table of Contents, you will be directed to the “Canon” page where the “Canon” categories ‘Season 2’, ‘Season 3’, and ‘Canon Divergent’ are hyperlinked.

If you click on one of these three categories, let’s say ‘Season 2’, you will find a list of Clexa fics that take place during Season 2 of the show organized by Author, Title, Chapters, Word Count, Summary, and a link to the fic on AO3 where it was originally posted and made available by the author.

Example 2: If you click the “AU Categories” section from the Table of Contents, you will be directed to the “AU Categories” page where you will find a list of AU categories.

Let’s say that from the “AU Categories” page you’re interested in the ‘Fake Dating’ category. You simply click the ‘Fake Dating’ category, and now you have a list of ‘Fake Dating’ AU fics organized by Author, Title, Chapters, Word Count. Summary, and a link to the fic on AO3 where it was originally posted and made available by the author.

Same goes for the “Master List” and “Smut” sections as well.

Navigating between the main sections and throughout the document:

Each of the four sections has a hyperlink that will take you back to the Table of Contents in the upper left hand corner of the page.

Each individual category has two hyperlinks, both in the upper left hand corner of the page.

1) The “Table of Contents” hyperlink will, you guessed it, take you back to the Table of Contents.
2) The specific category hyperlink will take you back to the main section of whatever category you’re currently in. (For example: If you’re in the ‘Season 2’ category, clicking the “Canon” hyperlink will take you back to the “Canon” page. If you’re in the ‘Fake Dating’ AU category, clicking the “AU Categories” hyperlink will take you back to the “AU Categories” page.)

How do I know I am looking at the most recent version of the Clexa Fanfic Master List?

The Master List will be updated periodically as we add more fics and as more fics are completed. You can find the most recent version of the document by checking our @clexarkives blog! We will also keep an updated link to the master list in our individual Tumblr bios (@ayokidd & @swan-heda).

Isn’t the Clexa Fanfic Master List basically like AO3 and FF? Why create a separate document?

Yes and no. We’re hopeful that the Clexa Fanfic Master List will give you more control over your fic reading than using AO3 or your web browser alone. If you’re like me (really neurotic and anal), you might also hate having 1,000 bookmarks saved on A03 and your computer browser that you have to search through every time you’re looking for a specific fic, and you might desire a higher level of organization and control. This document will help bring fics right to your desktop. We will update with fics we find and any fics you send us, which delivers a “master list” of not only your personal bookmarks, but everyone else’s as well!

This document is intended to make searching for new fics to read and keeping track of fics you’ve already read as easy as possible. Using Excel functions like “search” make it possible to find any specific fic you may be looking for anywhere in the document, on a specific page, or in a specific category.

Once you download the Excel file, you can edit, change, and personalize the document however you’d like! You can highlight fics you’ve read, sort by chapter or word count, or color code or rank fics based on whatever system you want to create. You can even delete fics or fic categories that aren’t for you if you know you’ll never read them. The world is your oyster! (…or more so this doc is your oyster?…)

Can I make suggestions for the Clexa Fanfic Master List ?

ABSOLUTELY!!! We both love fanfiction. We both read A LOT of fanfiction. However, we are only two people, and there are likely many fics we have yet to include (this IS a first draft after all), so:

READERS: If your favorite fics aren’t listed and you’d like them to be, tell us and we’ll add them! (Please also tell us if you’d like to see a specific category added - if there are fics written that fit it, we’ll add it!)

AUTHORS: If your fics aren’t listed and you’d like them to be (there are A LOT of fics and chances are if it’s not included, we just didn’t get to yours yet!), please tell us and we’ll add them! If your fics ARE listed, but you don’t want them to be, please tell us and we’ll remove them! Also, let us know if you disagree with the category we placed your fic into and suggest a new one, and we’ll move it!

EVERYONE: PLEASE reach out to us with any questions, comments, concerns, suggestions, advice, love, dislike (polite, respectful dislike) etc. you have to offer! Please feel free to contact us in any way you feel comfortable, anonymously or not (reply to this post, message us, flood our ask boxes, send us submissions, etc.) We are both super friendly and would love some feedback! Tell us what you like, what you don’t like, what you’d like to see in future versions, etc. Any feedback you provide us with will only make the subsequent updated editions of the document even better. This is, after all, for each and every one of you.

Enjoy!

May We Meet Again,

Swan-Heda and Ayokidd

anonymous asked:

If you could describe Dan and Phil by a color each which color would you choose for which of them idk

dan: champagne. i feel like he’s gone on such a personal journey over the past few years, he’s really discovered who he is in the world and has accepted himself for who he is and i think it’s pretty obvious even to us as viewers that only see a small sliver of his life that’s he’s so much happier, and i feel like in the olden days i would’ve described him as charcoal, when so many thoughts were in his head and he didn’t know what to make of the world and his part in it, but gradually he’s gotten lighter and now he’s at a nice champagney shade, close to gold, i think! 

phil: grape/mulberry. the reason phil is a darker shade has always resonated with me personally because we as viewers don’t know anywhere near as much about him as we do dan. we know that he’s been through a whole lot of shit that he doesn’t talk about because he’s trying to put on a happy front for us (this is when i would associate with him the shade of heather, his on-camera persona) but the reason i’ve not said a shade like lilac or lavender is because he’s an incredibly private and guarded person, that much is obvious, and i feel like his thoughts weigh down on him so much more than he lets on and life gets a little too much every so often and he just doesn’t know how to cope with it when he’s always trying so hard to help everyone else shine. i feel like phil has lightened too over the years like dan, he’s discovered who he is through and through, but he already had so much life experience over dan before they met, so there’s not been that dramatic of a transition. he’s impossible to read, and he just screams purple to me!!

dan and phil together: sapphire. they bring out the brightest sides of one another. they resonate happy vibes when they’re together whether they’re talking or not, it’s so clear that they mean the world to one another and whatever kind of bond they have is one in a million. the reason i didn’t choose a shade like sky or arctic is because we don’t know everything about them, everything is going to be forever hazy when it comes to them together, which i feel sapphire represents really well!!

This is my first imagine I’m posting on here! I normally post these on my Wattpad (you can message me for the username for there if you want) but I wanted to give Tumblr a try! I hope you all enjoy and please feel free to send me some feedback! I would really appreciate it! Also please tell me if you want more! Enjoy! x

BLOOD LUST

“A bit too tight, Mama,” I wince slightly as she yanks the strings to my corset so tight I couldn’t breathe.

“Pain is beauty, Adelaide, and if you need to look absolutely perfect for when the King comes to town tomorrow. The Master can’t see you looking anything less than perfect,” She says as she takes a pin from her mouth and places it near the new, makeshift hem so she can remember to sew there so I won’t trip over my own dress tomorrow.

“I’m scared. He has never come to town. Do you know what he’s coming for?” I whisper as I look out the window to see the tiny faeries glowing brightly as they fly and dance in the moonlight, darting to each and every scarce flower they could find in the chill of winter to find pollen to make their faerie dust. Mama tenses and pauses for a moment before shrugging and continuing her work.

I giggle and wave as one of the faeries flies to the glass and watches in awe as the candle light illuminates my dress that I was to wear for when Master arrived.

The mere thought of him sent chills down my spine. I had never met nor seen him, but I had definitely heard of the cruel, vampire king who ruled over this land. His skin was so pale that it was nearly translucent, every bluish-green vein noticeable, with eyes so red, it was like a fire blazed within them. He had chestnut brown curls that barely grazed his shoulders and his teeth were glistening white with points so sharp that with just a bit of pressure, he could pierce your neck and drain you dry in seconds.

They say he is a sad man, even though he ruled over many, many lands with all the riches of the world. In his thousand year reign, he never found love and, tales say, he searches relentlessly for his mate but to no avail. He knows only two features of his intended mate; fiery, red hair, the color of the very thing he craves the most, and eyes as green as emeralds just as his used to be before his blood lust settled in. They say his eyes have been red for hundreds of years, so long that they were beginning to say his past, gentle, kind nature and viridescent eyes were a myth.

Rumors were now going around that his sadness was developing into fierce, desperate anger, setting fire to every village that lied to him, saying there was a girl there who matches the description of his beloved.

I was used to the stares, the whispers, and pointing over my eighteen years in this world. I was the only redhead on a town of snow blondes and chestnut brunettes; a peculiar sight. I knew I matched the description of the king’s mate and so did everyone else in this tiny town. Sometimes, I dreamed vividly of a man so beautiful that he took my breath away. Even though I never dreamt of him with eyes like fire, only deep green, I knew it was the Master, the king, but I tried not to think much of it. I could never be his beloved.

“Okay, darling. Take it off so I can finish the hemming. I want to be able to get some sleep tonight,” my mother says tiredly as I slip off the beautiful, flowing dress and hand it to her.

Leaning over, she places a small kiss onto my forehead. Pulling back, she gazes at my face with an odd look in her eyes before sighing quietly. “Get some sleep, Adelaide. It could be a big day for us tomorrow,” she says and I immediately know she’s talking about the mate rumors. I nod softly as I pull on a nightgown before climbing into bed.

She walks out of my room, the wooden door eerily creaking shut, and I tug my quilted blanket closer as I hear the winter wind whip against the trees, the snowfall making it difficult to see the faeries glow as they continue to desperately scavenge for a few more hours until barren winter truly begins.

Feeling myself start to drift off, I lean over and with a quick gust of breath, I blow out my candle and my room goes completely dark, moonlight slowly creeping in through the window. Closing my eyes, I wonder if I’m going to dream of Master tonight as sleep overtakes me.

________

The once boiling water that was now my bath was starting to chill as I soaked absentmindedly. I could hear the villagers clamoring and shouting outside as they ready for the King’s arrival. I couldn’t believe that they believe that I was his mate so much that they sent a messenger to his castle. They put our little village, our home, in danger because of their beliefs. I wasn’t sure how I felt about that.

“Adelaide! Time to get out! The watchers spotted Master Styles about thirty minutes away, my child!” My mother shouts as I wash the rose oil off my body. Standing, I let the water roll and drip off my naked body as I grab my towel and quickly dry off.

Walking out into my bedroom, I gasp at the beauty of the dress my mother had finished making. The tight, corseted bodice was intricately designed with elegant pearls that shown with brilliant luster. My breasts were lightly pushed up and my pale skin looked even more translucent in the white dress. The flowing skirt billowed to my feet and felt soft on my legs. Extra fabric made a cape-like train appearance that just kissed the ground behind me as I walked. It was beautiful.

My hair was down with a few elaborate, delicate braids across the middle. On top of my head, my mother placed a wreath of baby’s breath that showed a stark contrast against my blazing red hair.

Turning to my mother, I open my mouth to speak when a loud horn is blown. The King was here.

My mother quickly grabs my hand and pulls me out of the house. My father and my younger brother stand there in the snow, looking down the beaten, dirt road in awe. For once, the tinkling of small bells was not heard as the faeries hid from the cold winter. Only gasps and whispers were trickling into my ears as I turn to see what all the fuss is about.

Walking further into the road, I stand there as dry leaves crack and crinkle under my feet, the ground cold and damp from the melting snow.


My eyes dart around to see the villagers in their best outfits gazing at me for a quick second before looking back down the road in trembling fear and excitement. Looking forward, I squint slightly only to gasp to myself as I see a small team of steel, black carriages pulled by dark stallions. Their heavy puffs of breath were evident in the cold air and their black manes were flowing behind them as they trotted, tiny, white snowflakes getting caught in the strands.

They slowly come to a halt as I feel my heart beating fast in my chest, my breathing becoming more and more frantic as I see a man hop down from his driving seat and open a carriage door. One dark boot stepping out is all it takes to send my body into overdrive before a masterpiece of a man as beautiful as the legends say fully steps out of the carriage. For someone who has lived over two thousand years, he still looked youthful and perfect.

His face is smug and dark as he looks around with a slight scowl, the commoners and people of the town swarming him instantly. His steps were calculated and determined as he walks to the stage where local news is normally projected. It was amazing to think he could actually run faster than a gust of wind.

I was in awe of him.

“My people,” he starts as something inside of me begins to tingle and a feeling I’ve never felt comes over me. His voice was raspy and smooth like thick, sweet molasses, sending every hair on my body on end.

He inhales deeply, looking like he was in pain and holding himself back but it seemed me and his guards were the only ones who notice. His guards take a step towards him as if they were ready for him to pounce on someone any second.

“As the years go by, your king stays healthy and young, ruling over this country fairly and keeping war at bay. But as I stay young, my servants and my slaves, especially my dear, sweet, generous blood slaves, grow old and frail. When they grow a certain age or get sickly,” he smiles kindly but I could see the maliciousness behind it. “I dispose of them, letting them leave the castle and go to a… a better place.” He says as the townspeople grow curious and anxious at his impending words.

This is not what they thought he was here for. He wasn’t looking for his mate at all when he decided to come to our village. He was looking for slaves, particularly blood slaves!

I take a step back as the realization comes over me, hoping no one will notice but the guard beside the king locks eyes with me and smiles demonically, his sharp teeth glistening as I imagine all the blood he has sucked from innocent people. His smile widens when he sees the color of my hair and his intrigue deepens.

“So, my lovely people, you are going to have to make a decision - a sacrifice, if you will - and hand over just a handful, only a handful, of your healthiest. After all, it’s the least you can do for your king,” he smiles once more, surveying the area as the people begin to panic. They didn’t want to be separated from their families!

Shouts of disagreement and outrage fill the small space before he holds his hands up to silence them. “If that’s how you are going to behave…Seize them,” he flicks his wrist, instructing his guards to rush into the crowd and start grabbing our healthiest and best-looking villagers.

I let out a small yelp of fear as I turn on my heel and start to run, gathering my dress up so I don’t trip and fall. Looking back, I see the guard I locked eyes with fighting through the crowd to get to me. Sending a quick prayer, I rush into the dark, nearby woods.

“Sir, there is a lady with red hair! Matching the description of your beloved!” I hear the man say as I run through the trees.

“Where?” The way Master Styles speaks sounded desperate and angry that the guard let me get away. His deadly, demonic tone sends shivers down my spine. By now, tears of fear are rolling down my cheeks as I feel briars and switches cutting into my legs as I run for my life.

“She ran through there!” is all I hear until an inhuman growl pierces the air and strikes terror into my heart. My breathing is harsh and scarce as my corset digs into my ribs and I feel myself becoming lightheaded.

Coming to the edge of the woods, I spot the clearing where our horses are kept. The grass is long and it was dark as it was still early in the morning and the winter clouds covered the sun. I pray the heavy odor of the horses will cover my scent as the wind blows, causing my dress to billow freely behind me.

I become so distracted by my loss of breath and the horses stampeding across the dark plain, I forget the one that is chasing me.

“Let me see your face.”

The voice that belongs to the vampire king sounds hopeless and sad, begging for me to turn and face him. I freeze for a moment, scared out of my wits before something inside of me yearns for me to turn to him.

Slowly, I turn to face him and our eyes lock. Instantly, a feeling I have never felt before takes over me and I suddenly want nothing more than to spend my life loving this man.  In a split second, his deep red eyes instantly turn emerald green as a dimpled, beautiful smile outbreaks on his face. His eyes fill with tears as he takes a step towards me, arms open to embrace me.

“My love, you don’t know how long I have waited for you.” He speaks softly and before I know it, he is within arms reach and gently taking my hand in his. He lightly gasps at the electrifying shock that goes through us and somehow his smile grows wider.

“You’re bleeding.” He states simply, making me look down to see my dress torn and my feet and my shin dripping blood from the briars. Surprisingly, I wasn’t scared as he leans down and places his face in the crook of my neck, even though I could feel his sharp fangs scraping across my vital veins. “Your blood smells so sweet, so delicious.” I tremble at his words, his tone causing tingles to run through me.

I actually wanted him to bite me.

Tiny, curious faeries emerge from the wood and their tiny bell-like rings fill my ears as a few watch us. I mentally say goodbye to them in my mind.

“What is your name, my darling?” He asks as he continues to lightly drag his teeth down my soft, vulnerable neck.

“A-Adelaide, Your Highness,” I whispered shakily, shocking myself as I turn my head to expose even more of my throat.

“Adelaide,” He purrs my name, the tingles now in my most private and secret place. I blush at my thoughts and feelings after just meeting this man, but what he does next shocks me to the core.

“You will never run from me or leave again. You’re mine now, ” He says, his voice turning dark before his sharp teeth sink into my neck and a bloodcurdling scream escapes me as he holds me still. He is ravenous and acts as if he hadn’t drank in years as I feel my body being drained dry. He slowly sinks us to the ground and I feel the soft grass against my skin as I stare up at the sky in shock, my mouth open in a silent scream as I feel myself becoming weaker and weaker. My pure white dress was now covered in my own blood as it drained out of the two puncture wounds in my neck.

Finally, he pulls away and I stare at his blood covered face as I feel my eyes failing me. Still, I did not fear him for an unknown reason. I trusted him as he whispers and lulls me to close my eyes. “Sleep, sweet Adelaide. We are going home now.”
