Alright! @therealjacksepticeye reblogged my work in progress from yesterday and here is the final product…well products. I couldn’t decide whether or not I liked the original or glitchy Anti better, so…por que no los dos?
You’ve asked me to tell you a story, to weave you a theory. My inbox sings with your requests to try and jumble everything together. You ask. I’ll deliver.
I’ll give it my best shot because there’s nothing I like more than a challenge. We’re sticking to the usual plan of trying to make the most ridiculous but still kinda plausible theory possible. To start us off, here’s what canon information I have to work with.
The Existing Carmilla Mythos - So we naturally have everything from the 3 seasons to work with. You’ve seen the web series. You know.
The Original Trailer - This is the one on the beach that announced the movie. Frankly, I’m curious as to how much of this will actually apply because from my understanding it was put together before they had a script. As a scene, it’s probably cut. I’m treating the information as canon because I don’t have enough material to be cutting ANY of it.
The New Cast Information - Literally yesterday, we received the names of three new cast members. Seeing as I’m going to make the case that these are all literary references (stay tuned) just their names alone give me info. They are:
The Woman In Black
Now we do our magical conjecture and fun fact building to try and whip it all together into a coherent story. Basically, I’m going to write you a movie because I’m a novelist at heart and a story structure buff. We’re going to try and figure out what we can expect when the movie releases in the fall (?). Buckle up, creampuffs.
This is going to get 7k words worth of messy from parents to exes to fish gods to old school novellas.

Scott smacked him on the shoulder.
“Stop staring. You’re going to end up getting our entire department stuck in a
sexual harassment seminar.”
Stiles sighed. “No man that
handsome should be that grumpy.”
“You’d be grumpy, too, if you had
to be Peter Hale’s assistant. Do your work, Stiles.”
“I’m going to make it my job to see
“Do your actual work.”
“Sure, sure,” Stiles said, finally
emailing off the spreadsheet he’d finished two hours before. Having an office
job, he had found, was really just a giant exercise in figuring out how to
waste time so his boss would believe he’d actually put “enough” effort into it.
He couldn’t help it if he was efficient.
Now he could spend the rest of the
afternoon figuring out how to make Derek Hale smile.
“I got it, I’ll do Pavlovian
coffee!” Stiles said at the bar after work.
Scott gave him an unimpressed
stare. “Didn’t that just result in the barista hating you last time? I’m pretty
sure they started spitting in your drinks.”
Stiles waved a dismissive hand.
“That’s just because Lydia Martin had a stupidly complicated order in high
school. The theory is still sound. I’ll just bring him coffee until he
associates me with delicious caffeine, and then I’ll get to see him smile.”
“At which point your life will be
“Yes,” Stiles said decisively,
picking up his beer again with a blissful smile.
Scott shook his head. “You’re so
weird. You need a hobby.” But then Allison from the third floor arrived and he
got thoroughly distracted, leaving Stiles to contemplate his perfect plan in
as you click through these i’m sure you’ll notice that there’s some pretty big jumps in process~ (^ v ^);;; but i had to reduce it to eight frames, since that’s the tumblr limit. ALSO! wow! that initial sketch! HAHAHA!!! it sure came a long way for there! LOL! LOL! LOL! for those who didn’t see my comments on the initial post, i originally started this piece back in December! X3 so my work has changed a lot since then! five months is a pretty big time jump when you’re constantly drawing! lol lol lol~!!!!
i both loved and loathed the process of drawing all the crystals for this! <3 i really learned a lot through the trial and error of making them! (-^ ___^-) i didn’t push them very far in terms of the coloring i ended up using on them, but i hope to apply what i learned (and take it further) in an up coming BnHA piece! in the end, i am so happy that people seem to be enjoying this one, because i really felt too strongly about the design to let it waste away in my “to-do” file!
Tldr; Creepy middle-aged man weird around young female workers at shopping mall
There’s this guy that’s been coming into my work now for about 2 years (I’ve been there for 4) and at first, I was always friendly because thats what I’m supposed to do. I feel like he took it the wrong way though because when I ask “Hi how are you?” (Standard company greeting) he always talks about how his family says he needs to settle down and find a girlfriend. This guy is old enough to be my father and he just has a general creepy vibe now. Like he goes in when I’m not there and asks the staff if I’m there or hangs around waiting for me to finish with a customer to talk to me.
A few months ago, I was shopping in the same mall where my store is but I wasn’t working that day. I was waiting to get food and I felt someone stroke my hair. I whipped around and he was standing there smiling. I tried to be polite but literally gtfo as soon as I could. Since then, whenever he comes into the store, my manager asks me to “do stocktake out the back” because he knows what this guy is like.
Yesterday he came in again but I was stuck with a customer. They were 3 girls around my age and I spent about 10 minutes with them, praying they wouldn’t leave because he was hanging around waiting to talk to me. He eventually left and one of the girls said “Thank god he’s gone. He’s such a creep.” She works at a fast food place in the mall and apparently he goes there, orders his food then sits there and stares at the young girls working there. She tried to get him banned but he never actually did/said anything inappropriate to them, just stared.
I’m kinda relieved because I now know he’s not weirdly obsessed with JUST me but it also creeps me out because those girls were only 16 (I’m 21) and there’s a lot of younger workers there who can’t do anything.
Watched @squigglydigglydoo‘s BATIM chapter 3 stream at work yesterday and as usual it prompted some silly doodles.
Apparently for now there’s an issue that makes the screen go black and not load the next chapter if you’re replaying old chapters. And at first no one was sure what was going on but one of Squiggly’s friends commented that Henry was gonna wake up in real time and that he was in a concussion based coma. And that a person would periodically come check on him, open his eyes like ‘would you like some juice? What day is it?’ and leave
And I just. Imagined Sammy doing that since he was the first person I thought of in chapter 2.
Second was Squiggly staring at the REALLY good n bouncy Boris model. But that meant Henry was staring at Boris in game. At first I was gonna draw her Toon Henry AU Henry but I had 0 idea of doing that with no reference so just. Really random Henry?
Lastly after listening to the Joey tape I think the FUCK BEES video/song got accidentally played by Squiggs???? But in my brain it manifested as the Joey tape being replayed and being THAT instead of the actual tape. I don’t know whether I regret this or not
Has the production of ghost lights been on hold because i miss it
for a moment i didn’t really get what you meant, but then i noticed i was supposed to update yesterday AHH IM SORRY ;; i just came home from a long stay at @kandismon and i still have things to catch up on, but i’m working on the comic as well! update will just be a bit delayed this time, it’s a longer scene again so it takes more time to finish too
is heartbroken after you leave him. he decides to start over and try to
get over you by moving into a new apartment building where he meets
chanyeol. what he later finds out is that chanyeol has been your
boyfriend for the past month.

From the map you looked at online, it seemed pretty straightforward. Walk in the building, go to the second floor, and then the first office on the left. You could do that.
But the map didn’t say anything about where the stairs or elevator were. It was like a maze, and you felt like you were just walking in circles–except if that was the case, you would have found the entrance again at some point.
“Um, excuse me?” You turned toward the voice, seeing a young security guard walking toward you. “Can I help you with something?” You assessed him for a moment before replying.
“No, I’m fine. Thanks though.” You gave him a small wave before continuing down the hall. He was entirely too good-looking to be a security guard, and you didn’t have time to get distracted.
“You look lost, though.” He called after you, walking quickly to catch up with you.
“Well, I’m not.” You said. The elevator had to be around here somewhere, right?
“Oh really?” The security guard chuckled. You glanced at him sideways, seeing the name “Park Jimin” printed onto his name tag. The name rung a bell, but you couldn’t quite place where you had heard it.
“Really.” You assured him, glancing at your watch.
“Okay, I just thought you were here for the interview at five. And if you were, I was going to tell you you’re walking in the opposite direction than you should be. But if not…”
“Okay, maybe I don’t know where the elevator is.” You said reluctantly, and Jimins smirk grew.
“Follow me.” And he turned on his heals, walking back the way you had come. Keeping up with him was no easy task, he didn’t seem to care whether you followed or not, not looking over his shoulder once. He took several abrupt turns, at one point leading you straight through someone’s office. You were just starting to think that he was just messing with your head and trying to get you more lost when you came to an elevator. The doors were just starting to close when you managed to finally catch up and step in.
Jimin looked more than pleased. “You kept up.” He said, sounding impressed as he selected the second floor.
“No thanks to you.” You grumbled under your breath. He laughed in response.
“On the contrary, all thanks to me. You would still be lost if I hadn’t run into you.”
“I wasn’t lost.” You corrected. The door chimed, and the two of you stepped out. “I knew exactly where I was. I just didn’t know where other things were in relation to me.”
You had arrived at an office door, and Jimin tilted his head sideways to study you. “Good answer.” He said. “I don’t think I’ve heard that before. Welcome to the team, by the way.”
“Wait, what?” You said, looking from the office door to him. His name was beside it, along with “Chief of Security”. Oh. He was the one you were supposed to interview with. How had you forgotten his name?
“I might have been testing you.” Jimin shrugged. “Not that I meant for you to get lost, but if an employee can’t keep up with me, that’s a problem.” He gave you a smile, holding out his hand. “I’m Park Jimin, by the way.”
“I know.” You said, then mentally shook yourself. “I mean, we didn’t even do a normal interview–”
“I looked at your file yesterday.” Jimin said. “And I think we’ll get along just fine.”
“That… works then.” You said, still slightly taken aback.
“I’ll look forward to working with you.” He smiled again, and you weren’t sure if you looked forward to working with him or dreaded it, but there was no doubt it would be interesting.
A/N Idk what this is, I just had a long day and felt like writing it. Thank you for reading, and as always, let me know your thoughts/feelings! <3 <3
Rules: Tell your followers 11 random facts about yourself, and tag 11 people in return! Tag backs are allowed, but you mustn’t repeat any of the facts you mentioned previously. The facts can be absolutely anything! Whatever springs to mind! Allons-y!
1. I am a very precise person. I notice that especially in the way I write (I can’t stand typos or un-pretty formatting), text (even in text messages I keep an eye on grammar and spelling) or do work. I can never let myself do “just enough”. I don’t even know what “just enough” is and I feel terrible whilst knowing that I have not done everything I could have done… Sometimes I wind up in very stressful situations because of this perfectionism.
2. I have a dog. A blonde labrador. His name is Jamie and I adore him ♥
3. I am part of the youth ensemble of the local theatre and we are currently starring in an opera. My second performance will be on Saturday, the first one was yesterday.
4. I am very interested in interior design. I love vintage-y hipster stuff, light colours and vintage prints that have inspiring quotes on them.
5. I am currently studying media and communication science. In March I will start my fourth semester.
6. We recently moved to a very provincial town and I want to leave it again as soon as possible. There are so many things I despise about it - especially the fact that the place has absolutely nothing to offer in winter. Everything’s just grey and muddy and wet and makes me depressive. I call it February-depression.
7. I am a vegetarian.
8. I can very easily think of movie and TV show quotes, I really am a walking dictionary of great and/or amusing quotes. Give me the beginning of a sentence and I am sure that in 70% of the cases, I can complete it with a quote. Challenge accepted! :)
9. Uuuh… I don’t like it when people pet my hair because it’s very curly and very hard to tame.
10. Tonight I dreamed about some kind of goat-deer hybrids da-da-ing Offenbach’s Can Can and aggressively line dancing. Yup.
11. Whenever someone gives me chocolate, I don’t store it in my room, I store it in the kitchen. Because I know that if I stored it in my room, I’d eat it in a day. The problem is just that someone always finds it in the kitchen at some point and… nibbles off a bit. Sigh. Will I ever learn?
OMFG you guys! I srly just hit 1000 Followers?! Like for real now? °o° It feels like I made this blog just yesterday. But…I’m glad the fandom is so big and active <3 Don’t know what’s happening and why, but thaaaanks!
I also have a few messages and asks in my inbox and I will work on answering all of them (with art if possible). Thanks for your patience…I’m just a simple working person X,) Love you all! (灬ºωº灬)♡
Ok so here’s my encounters with starkid from yesterday!! Thank y'all so much for letting me share this with you <3 I hope this isn’t too boring
First thing that happened was I passed Nick on the stairs on the way to my room after the show! I was so surprised and unsure of what to say that I just kept walking and stopped a min later to recover from that and kick myself for not saying anything. It worked out though bc this morning I saw him again and told him I’d loved the show and got to have a pic with him too XD
As soon as the thing with Nick had happened on the stairs my family persuaded me to try and catch up with him to say hi. I ended up on the ground floor having completely lost him and ran into Dylan and Jaime!! Another fan took a pic for us and I told them how much I’d loved the performance. Everything else is a blur but that alone made my year and Jaime is such a sweetheart
(Passed Clark in the hotel a few times but never had the courage to say hi lmao)
Later yesterday evening I got a picture with Meredith at the Esther Earl Ball! She was so nice and she saw my phone case and was like “is that pusheen? Aw it’s lots of lil pusheeeeeeen!” and was just so happy and friendly and I couldn’t quite believe that this was Meredith Freakin’ Stepien standing in front of me and complimenting my phone case :’) I told her that I’d loved the show and she was like “oh yeah it was so embarrassing we all wore the same shirts” and I couldn’t stop myself from telling her how much I loved the matching outfits thing and how amazing it was to meet her. I can’t put into words what a wonderful kind amazing person she is <3 I’d been dying of stress trying to gather the courage to approach her and she was so kind and friendly to me (shout out to my bro for actually being the one who made me go over to her) so meeting her was brief but v wonderful :’)
A bit later I saw Joe and Joey hanging out at the bar. I waited for ages trying to summon the courage to go over to them and also just being completely star struck by Joey being a few feet away from me. Joey left (to find the others?) but I didn’t want to bother him so I stayed back. I approached Joe later and got a pic with him and chatted with him briefly! I told him I’d loved the show and he said he hadn’t performed in like a year so he was super rusty and I was like “dude,,if you were I did not notice” XD I think I shook his hand too?? Ran into him on the dance floor seconds after we’d talked and I was just like “omg we’re not following you I promise” and hopefully he believed me :p
Left the ball feeling so blessed by starkid being so friendly and approachable and hoping against hope I’d get to talk to Lauren and Joey at some point the next day XD
And that was day 1!!! Have I mentioned the starkids are so kind and approachable bless them so much. Meeting them honestly made my year and I was so lucky to have the opportunity <3
I got off work at 6 pm, per usual. Looked at my phone to find 6 missed calls and 3 texts from my mom saying “CALL ME”
So I did, worrying that something was wrong with dad. NOPE HE’S FINE.
Turns out that she’d been at work (she’s the Director of Tourism for Jackson County Iowa, and her office is at the visitor center, a refurbished 1 room schoolhouse outside of Sabula Iowa.) She heard a buzzing outside, and looked out to see BEEZ EVERYWHERE.
Turns out it was a swarm! Now, standard polite protocol among beekeepers is to, if you find a swarm and think you know who it came from to contact the other beekeeper and see if they want to come get their bees. There’s an apple orchard a couple miles from the visitor center that keeps bees, so she called them. But NOPE, their hives hadn’t swarmed, they have no idea where they came from. SO SWARM IS ALL OURS :D
PROBLEM; They’re clustered 30 feet up in a walnut tree. Standard beekeeping solution; plonk an empty hive body loaded with frames of old wax (that smells nice and homey to bees) and a couple frames of honey (to smell nice and tasty to bees). MOM’S PROBLEM; she’s working late and can’t get home to get her beekeeping shit together, and also, crucially, she’s out of lemongrass oil. (Which mimics the scent of bee pheromones, and is used to make swarm lures. However, we’re both cheap bitches and won’t buy swarm lures, opting instead to buy pure lemongrass oil and just rub down the hive ware with it.)
So she’s out, but she knows me well enough to know I have some. So I get together an empty hive body, and go to pull some frames of honey out of one of her hives.
Turned out her girls in the Celtic Green hive were salty as fuck. They’ve interbred with local ferals fairly often over the last five or so years so this does not surprise me too much. They’re also productive as all hell; Mom’s got three deeps and a medium super on there already and it’s PACKED solid with bees and honey and brood.
Side tangent. Any beekeepers who say you can’t keep bees without medications and miticides? Need to come look at this fucking hive. There’s gotta be 120,000 bees in that thing. It’s massive. Didn’t have phone at the time but will go back and get pictures of the monster later after I get off work today.
So, 15 stings to the arms and neck and ear later, I get over to the welcome center with bee equipment and lemongrass oil in hand. Set up the hive under the clustered swarm, doused everything in lemongrass, let mom pick the stingers out of the back of my neck.
Now, we wait and hope the swarm smells it, finds the hive, and decides “Yes ok this looks nice we’ll move in immediately.”
If they do we’ll probably leave the hive there at the welcome center. We’ve both been thinking about putting some hives there for awhile anyway.
