underwater towns

I thought that it was more likely the opposite. I must have shut grief out. Found it in books. Cried over fiction instead of the truth. The truth was unconfined, unadorned. There was no poetic language to it, no yellow butterflies, no epic floods. There wasn’t a town trapped underwater or generations of men with the same name destined to make the same mistakes. The truth was vast enough to drown in

Meme about meeting characters

Twitter had a “like this thing and I’ll tell you about a character,” here is a quick and slightly edited list for cross-posting-promotional purposes.

A comprehensive “whose who” with artwork will be posted later this year when the blog launches.

  1. Red Kelp, dryad, has very little magical talent, which is odd for her kind. She struggles with this.
  2. The Purple Paw Thievery, a guild of magical rabbits that constantly steal, are generally beloved. They rarely take anything valuable.
  3. No one quite knows “what” Atticus is and he won’t say. Very limited shape shifting ability, terrible at tech, kinda bad with magic. But Knows Too Much.
  4. Nixxi, sea nymph, is deeply devoted to lost gods of storm & sea. She is piecing together her beliefs in found artifacts and old books.
  5. Dime Store Halloween is one of the most popular bands in the Netherworld. They tend to play smaller venues for more fan interaction.
  6. Lemon Peel, dragon, is constantly scheming to get snacks. It is adorable so this nearly always works. Teams up with PPThievery often
  7. Strawberry, mermaid, is exceptionally powerful magically. She has a bright, summer personality and often makes gifts (wreaths especially)
  8. Magma (everyone calls her Ham), gorgon, is a brilliant engineer – of space tech & business deals. She is immensely powerful & respected
  9. Penny P. Post, vampire, fights to balance shyness and being an extrovert. Small amounts of attention are grand but too much is worrisome
  10. Mister Ghost is a retired adventurer who enjoys farming and sitting on the porch, listening to stories. Doesnt feel the need to say much
  11. Creepy Crepes is a diner run by ghosts. The service is quick, the food is riddled with delicious slime, the milk shakes are cursed
  12. Zelda K. Arcadia, witch, is extremely talented at getting people to share secrets. She is slick and quiet and dangerous.
  13. Harper L. Vandergloom, skeleton, is a librarian in charge of the Lost Book Brigade, adventurers that recover forgotten tomes and scrolls
  14. Hopscotch All-Colors, gnome, is the time traveling postmaster of the Netherworld Post Office. Uses colorful outfits to track timelines
  15. The Potion Maker’s Authority holds regular demonstrations, workshops & chili cookoffs to brew up interest in their craft
  16. The Muenster Lunar Colony Bar & Grill is a gateway to space at large. And the fries are -to-die- for.
  17. Gardot is an underwater town, bigger than Peyroux and not as remote. Known for its musical and magic culture.
  18. Autumn’s Lost Wood is a forest of  perpetual October. It is full of ghosts, carnivorous plants, goblins, ghouls & monsters
  19. Sophie M. Starwater, elemental mage, will get you out of a jam and bring snacks while she does. Cinnamon roll. Owns many axes.
  20. The Queen regularly puts on tournaments so her “secret” (everyone knows) warrior lover will showcase her incredible physical strength
  21. The Netherworld is full of harmless gossip – everyone talks about everyone (unless you ask for your business not to be shared)
  22. Enemies are common but malice is very rare. It is not unusual for mortal foes to dine together occasionally in neutral locations.
I must have shut grief out. Found it in books. Cried over fiction instead of truth. The truth was unconfined, unadorned. There was no poetic language to it, no yellow butterflies, no epic floods.

In Super Mario 64, the two parts of Wet-Dry World do not exist in memory simultaneously. When Mario passes through a certain point in the tunnel, the underwater town becomes loaded and the main level becomes unloaded. By positioning the camera in a certain spot during the transition, we can see that the same elevation is both above ground in the main level and below the ceiling in the underwater town. This means the locations overlap physically, which should not be possible.

and it was me and you
and the whole town underwater
there was nothing we could do
it was dark blue

dark blue, dark blue, have you
ever been alone in a crowded room?
well, i’m here with you, i said
the world could be burning and burning down

have you ever been alone in a crowded room?
well, i’m here with you, i said
the world could be burning
now there’s nothing but dark blue…

Runaway

I wonder what would happen if I ran off into the world?
What would happen if I left you all behind and never told you why?
Because I’m sick of not being good enough and causing all this trouble,
And I’m sick of feeling like you could do better than me, myself and I.

If I ran off to the country to run through each and every field,
To feel the breeze and grass swishing around me with every step,
I could live in a log cabin big enough for only one, only me,
And I could rock beside the fire and think through the memories that I kept.

If I ran off to another city, would you miss me and my mind,
If I were to start a new life and socialise with the richest of the rich?
I could wake in the morning, smell the coffee being ground,
I could spend all day wandering through libraries and never feel ditched.

If I ran off to Paris, worked in all the cafes and more,
Would you remember the times I made you smile when you were sad?
In the City of Love, I could fall in love with myself all over again,
I’d remember my successes rather than how I failed mum and dad.

If I ran off to live under the sea, in those new underwater towns,
Would I be able to breathe easier than when I choked back all my thoughts?
Swim with the dolphins, the turtles, see all that vibrant life,
And never feel like I’d been tricked, trapped and caught.

If I ran off to join the stars, broke off a piece of the sky for myself,
Would I believe that I’d found heaven among the planets and the moon?
Or would I look down at Earth, floating alone in inky blackness,
Would I miss you? Would I change my mind and come back soon?

If I ran off down the street, looked in all the familiar windows,
I’d see the people and life that I’d fallen in love with over time,
But would I miss all the travelling that I could do? Miss the world that I could see?
Would I fall in love with myself? Could I truthfully finally say I’m fine, I’m enough, this is me?

Drabble: Shimmering

Series: Owari no Seraph
Pairing: Hyakuya Mikaela x Hyakuya Yuuichirou
Rating: T
Summary: ‘They are as in love with each other, as they are in awe of each other.’
Based on @pemprika‘s Mermaid!AU. 

Notes: I’ve been thinking about Pemprika’s Mermaid!AU for a while now, and I just wanted to write this quick drabble to show my love for it!! XD Sharon (may I call you Sharon? We’ve never talked, so I realize that this is probably gonna be weird, so if you want me to take this fic down, please do let me know! I just wanted to write something for you, because this AU is hella AMAZING AND YOU ARE FREAKING BRILLIANT AND I ADORE YOUR AUs LIKE WHOA!!), I’m so very sorry if this disappoints you!! ><

I tried my best, I really did! I wanted to write fluff, but it didn’t really turn out that way; it turned into some sort of mesh of romance and something else entirely!! Gahhh!!! I don’t know why I taint everything I see in the Mikayuu fandom with my silly brain, but regardless, I hope you guys like it anyway! 

I’mma go throw myself out the window now!

FIRE MV

Okay so after watching the Fire MV a few times I noticed, on the wall behind Jungkook when the burning bike rolled past him, it says “Lost River”: 

I didn’t really think that this meant anything special but I looked it up anyway. Apparently “Lost River” is the title of a movie wherein “a single mother is swept into a dark underworld while her son discovers an underwater town.” 

Again, this didn’t really seem like a big deal. Until I looked it up on Google Images and one of the first images to pop up is this: 

We can see that they’re making an explicit reference to this movie, so it must mean something. 

As I haven’t seen this movie, and don’t really know what it’s about, I can’t really make much more comment on this. But if you have seen this movie, and you think you know what they’re suggesting with this, please let me know??
