weird symbol


I don’t know all the rules to psychic powers in this world. Like, could someone specializing in telekinesis know a little bit of mind-reading? (I always assumed that’s what Teru did when he cheated at tests). Maybe they go into that later on, I dunno. 

Here Mob’s using a bit of empathy by accident and digs into inner feelings rather than ones on the surface. Mob has such a low opinion of himself I figure learning that someone cares enough to be willing to die for you would be pretty overwhelming.

(Please don’t remove the description on this or it’ll make zero sense. :’’’D )

Freak Heart

You were born with them.

They protrude from your skull, your hair tangling around them. They twist upwards, curved like old tree limbs weighed down by time.

Your antlers.

Doctors have tried to explain them. They’ve all pretty much failed. Words like metastasized and unusual bone growth were thrown around a lot.

They grow with you. They were small when you were born, nothing more than tiny lumps that doctors dismissed as being the result of a treacherous and fast birth. But then, they started to grow.

You’re 21 now, and they resemble the antlers of any full-grown deer living in the woods peppered throughout town.

Doctors say the pressure they put on your skull is dangerous. They say it’ll eventually kill you.

You’re not dead yet, though you figure they’re probably right, anyway.

You figure anything can kill you, if you give it enough time.

“they say you cannot love two people equally at once,” she said. “and perhaps for others that is so. but you and will—you are not like two ordinary people, two people who might have been jealous of each other, or who would have imagined my love for one of them diminished by my love of the other. you merged your souls when you were both children. i could not have loved will so much if i had not loved you as well. and i could not love you as i do if i had not loved will as i did.” 

And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
And given half the chance would I take any of it back
It’s a fine romance but it’s left me so undone
It’s always darkest before the dawn

Cabin Pressure Week - Day 3
Prompt: Continuation and/or ‘weight’

Not sure why my brain went ‘ah yes, douglas weighed down by regrets/expectations/loss/etc’ but that’s what happened…

Conversation I had today

Me: *screeching quietly*

Friend: Are you okay?? You’ve been sad all day, do I need to kill someone?


Friend: *hugs me and draw the symbol on my arm for me*

okay so the general responses to that weird symbol post seem to be:

  1. it’s someone’s signature (which is really likely but i still can’t figure out whose signature it could be)
  2. it’s an easter egg (also likely but from where i gotta know)
  3. it’s the in-universe symbol for earth (if the symbol is plot relevant somehow then this is pretty possible considering the cow and the cave are from earth)
  4. it has something to do with lance (also pretty possible)
  5. the cow is the blue paladin (uh)
  6. izzy why were you staring at the cow’s ass (shut up)

Not sure if anyone has pointed this out, but I remember this symbol appearing in an earlier comic on MTMTE, ha I can’t remember the exact number, and also when skids went through the portal on Luna 1. Nautica says that on Troja Major, a museum had an exhibit on an “old order.” It was also discussed to be a coat of arms. Perceptor adds that someone from the “Circle of Light” registered it to be affiliated with the Knights of Cybertron. ohohohoh. 

Trust me I have no idea what their correlation is with the Knights or these weird people but I happened to catch this and it just seemed weird to me. Or maybe this has been proven and I’m just out-of-loop. (-_-)

Can you imagine the absolute panic Todd would feel if Dirk Gently ever texted him asking him to pick up some tea on the way home?

Todd’s seen Dirk’s apartment. It’s not exactly clean, but the tea cupboard? The tea cupboard looks like an explosion of brightly coloured boxes, some of them in foreign languages, some of them with weird symbols that Todd isn’t sure are even human.

Todd would rather go another round with the shark kitten than try and guess what kind of weird expensive leaves Dirk requires suddenly. Todd has never been more intimidated in his life.

  • Peake: That's your will? You need that many pages to say give my stuff to my wife?
  • James: It's a complicated legal document.
  • Peake: It doesn't have to be. I've had the same will since I was 8 years old.
  • James: "Upon my death, all of my belongings will transfer to the man or animal who has killed me."
  • James: What are these weird symbols?
  • Peake, looking off into the distance: The man who kills me will know.
For all of you who wanna quit cosplaying because you feel like you aren’t good enough.

Look at some of my old cosplays.

My first John, first cosplay ever (Besides L that one time)

My Vriska cosplay. Didn’t even have horns or grey!

My Condy.

My Terezi, even!

And I didn’t even include the worst, which I had erased my pictures of. The worst was Anime Expo 2013 Feferi. I couldn’t find my grey leggings, so I wore black ones. I was stupid and tried to mix a darker grey, which just made me look weird. My symbol was splotchy along with my grey facepaint!

But, let’s see how far I’ve come in three short years.

My John improved!

My Terezi NOW.

Look at me! that hot little tater tot!

Cosplaying my own Fantroll, Viodra Fanova! Quite gorgeous!

Seriously, I love how it turned out.

Not to mention Stanford Filbrick Pines!

The cutest little Ford around!

In conclusion:

Do NOT give up! You WILL improve!
