I Wreak of Desperation and Sad Girl Culture Just Like This Poem

We don’t use “diaries” anymore those are meant for secrets and we have none. We let them spill out of our bodies and onto paper that resemble bloodied bandages because it’s the only way we are going to heal. We turn our pain into poetry because anything that hurts this much has to mean something. And even though we are desperate for anyone to listen our language is in letters that we will never send. We romanticize our pain like it’s the only lover we will ever know. Love is our god and we are each our own devils. We are too fragile for this world, 

ceremoniously destroying ourselves before anyone else can do it for us yet we still can’t understand why we’re so broken. We all talk about love like we’ve felt it. And maybe we have, each to our own definition of love. Do you think you need to feel that burning in your insides and all the romantic stuff we see in poems to be in love? like, is it love if I don’t feel like my chest is going to explode when she looks at me? But Rather my chest will explode if I don’t look at her.

She paints me in shades of yellow because she says I am like the sun but if you were to cut me open you would find your hands stained red and there is no light inside. Just darkness mixed with blood. I want her to paint emotions. Anxiety is red. Not the dark red that my mom likes but bright red like stop signs or an emergency exit that I can’t seem to find. Red like ink marks all over a paper you thought you did well on. Red like I bit my lip too hard and now my mouth tastes like blood. Depression is blue. The kind that is mixed with a little bit of grey. Blue like the color of the clouds right before it rains and you can’t find the sun. Blue like it is starting to get dark outside and you can’t tell where the sky ends and the ocean begins. Blue like the eyes of someone you used to love. Love is yellow. Not the kind I hate that is too bright but the soft kind. Yellow like sunlight pouring through an open window onto my skin. Like light yellow daisies. Yellow like the faded pages of old love poems.

I’m a walking tragedy but I’m dripping in gold with a painted face, my lips the color of all the blood I shed, like the color of the heart that’s beating resentfully inside of my chest, like the stains in my mattress, the paint smeared on the walls. A ruin with two arms and legs that have seen hell, unlovable qualities that arrived in the absence of a childhood, a childhood without a child, a child without a memory they call repression. A body without a soul that they call depression. Exploding, imploding, aggression, the only loves I’ve ever known, the only loves to ever stay and taste like heaven. I’m searching for my exit, but if I take my leave soon they’ll never forgive me, so I’m stuck feeling everything and then nothing at all.

  • Program: Photoshop CS6 Portable
  • Difficulty: Easy (it’s just time consuming) 
  • Previous Knowledge: Basic knowledge on how to make gifs (any PS resource blog will have tutorials on how to make them)

5 Reasons to Play Blue Hatter’s Route


I don’t even know where to begin from to be honest. I was awake till 3am playing his route and I’m so satisfied and happy with everything so I decided to make this post. I highly recommend all the voltage and KBTBB fans to give Rhion a try and here’s why:


1. Same story….but different!

I’m not a huge fan of KBTBB’s plot but Rhion’s story is a bit different. The story has a different prologue and just a tiny bit of change has made the story more fun. In a spoiler-free nutshell:


2.Excellent Relationship Development

I liked how you could actually see why and how MC falls in love with him and vice versa. You can actually feel yourself be the MC and that’s what I’m really looking for in an otome game. The development doesn’t jump from 0 to 100 and everything is built up quite nicely.


3. Rhion….MUST PROTECT HIM AT ALL COST!!;_;

Rhion ……. one of the most sensitive sweethearts I have ever played! He is so pure and innocent that is too much for this world! His unpredictable character made the game so fun and I kept looking forward to what he would do next. 

He’s an angel accidentally fallen from the sky….not even kidding!u_u


4.MC…You have come a long way ! *pats her shoulders*

KBTBB’s MC has been one of my least fave MC’s in Voltage games but much to my surprise in Rhion’s route:

  • She’s not an annoying weakling waiting for her prince to save her
  • She does her job well protecting our angel 
  • Her reactions and answers are realistic 
  • SHE IS FLUENT IN ENGLISH!! 
  • And last but not least


  • SHE HAS EYES!!! 🙏🏻 


5. Best Background Music E.V.E.R!

Like OMG !REALLY AWESOME!;_;

I always think great stories/movies/anime are only good if they have a good music that matches the vibe and this one went beyond my expectations that I downloaded a crappy version of it! (p.s: Plz tell me if there’s a way to download the original song somewhere?;_; I desperately need them!) They’re all original songs for his route and they perfectly match his route.The transition between the songs is really impressive and on point and I was just 

**Bonus: Eisuke x Cheshire (Rhion’s cat)


There’s so much more I can say about his route but I don’t wanna spoil it so I’ll keep it at this and fly away! Lemme know how you thought about him and his route!

Happy Playing!^_^)/

somethingscarlet13  asked:

Hi. Do you have any good pictures of the prince in the beginning of the movie where he's wearing dark blue and has black swan-esque makeup? Because that look is killer and I'd love to have some pictures of it. Thank you! :)

I have a few pictures. Let me know if this is sort of what you are looking for…

Fairy Tail Chapter 539 Review

Ladies and Gentlemen, this freaking chapter

Our cover is the GMG arc. Maybe this whole conclusion will turn out like the GMG arc, starts off good, then becomes bad, then becomes absolute garbage.

So we open on the random where Blue Pegasus is stationed. As they all begin to notice cracks in the sky.

Y’know what makes Jenny’s tears more sweet, the fact that Anna and Ichiya don’t show up in this chapter meaning there is a possibility they didn’t survive the christina explosion. I know I shouldn’t expect them to be dead but honestly wouldn’t that be a little interesting?

I just love all these looks of absolute terror.

My friends the king is back

Okay questions. First I understand eating the magic but the way Anna described it sounded like this wasn’t just magic but it actually was a space in between time, while Zeref said it’s overflowing with time magic which means Acnologia can eat it wouldn’t it still be hard and take time to get out of a rift in time and space? Second I never thought controlling the magic you ate was a problem for DS, in fact I believe it’s been a signature thing about how the DS body will adapt and incorporate what it’s eaten. In fact, we see that later on. Third I’m really just trying to hope this isn’t a new “level” of power because he’s already strong enough as it is, so I’m interpreting it as he’s just refueled himself from using up a lot of magic.

Acnologia whips out a technique called “Eternal Flare” (which sounds like he stole it from Atlas Flame) but hey lets check it out!

Thats… Thats my king’s roar! Okay if people don’t know I wrote a “How I would end Fairy Tail” and it has a big fight with Acnologia and he uses a technique I thought up called “King’s Roar” where he uses his breat attack (Y’know the energy blasts) and rains hell down upon the everyone. This is the same thing! This actually reminds me, there’s a fellow reviewer of mine named @ac-fairytail who made a prediction list and surprisingly a good chunk of her predictions actually came true. Well now with this our suspicions about Mashima just spending time on tumblr might actually be true.

Also literally 2 pages are devoted to destruction caused by this technique. On the one hand I like this for creating this sense of scope but on the other it seems like this eating away more page space than it needs to.

So we cut to Erza sinking and wow this is pointless, I mean regardless of the fact that she is basically invincible we see that focusing on her actually isn’t even for the future of the plot. I mean you are probably not going to do a damn thing this climax, Erza.

See! Wendy is taken! Wouldn’t it make more sense to focus on the character that will actually have an effect on not only the future chapters but also the character who we’re suppose to feel scared for? No lets focus on Erza again!

So apparently eating time magic gave Acnologia Ban’s fox hunt because we see he’s just grabbing all the DS from first, second, and third gen. Also this scene with Lucy and Gray, first off my god the re writing ENDs’s book actually worked? The hell? To make sense of this I’m still under the theory that maybe there was an organic link transfer to Lucy from the book and that’s why Natsu didn’t die. Second, wow are they so oblivious to not notice the glowing light just sucked away their friend. Also this is my other problem with the chapter and it’s something we will get into post chapter follow up. 

So Natsu (And most likely the other DS) have been taken to this newly forming structure in the ravines of time where we see human Acnologia. Okay I made jabs saying that Natsu vs Zeref is just ripping of Haru vs Lucia. Well maybe I was wrong. With being inside this area of time and a black sky plus the falling stars, this is basically a pseudo version of the star memory battlefield in Rave.

Post Chapter Follow up: This was honestly an okay chapter. What it does good is very obvious, it brings back Acnologia but what I really need to give credit to this chapter for is building tension. Watching just how big the strength of the widespread destruction is, plus the sheer terror of this situation really draws the reader in.

Now even though it’s okay it has some very hard to ignore flaws, the first being the moment of focusing on Erza. Why would you focus on someone who will most likely not be involved in the climax and is someone we obviously don’t fear will get taken by Acnologia. Now this isn’t me hating Erza it’s me hating the structure of the story telling. Speaking of structural problems, it bugs me is this chapter in context with the previous one we saw Natsu disappear then the cracks in the sky, but that’s not how the linear story telling went, the cracks are happening before the disappearance. It bothers me that Hiro wanted to have his cake and eat to because last chapter he did “death” of Natsu and the cliffhanger was the cracks even though that’s events out of order. It’s not even like this is so nitpicky that it doesn’t need to be fixed because in Tartaros when Mashima had the dual plots of Erza stopping face and Natsu facing Mard Geer he made clear distinction in the time difference of the events told out of order.

The biggest problem I have is the Acnologia plot convenience beam coming and grabbing all the dragon slayers. While I’m happy that we may get DS vs Acnologia we still don’t have any clue of what the DS have been doing and why we should now care. Wouldn’t it be so much better to use that breather chapter to check up on all these guys? What has happening to crime sorciere, how did they feel about Jellal just blowing them off or are they okay with it? What’s been going on with Sting and Rogue after their Larcade fight? With Gajeel and Laxus we see what they’ve been up to but the others are just being grabbed without enough build up of why we should care about the characters if their just going to be thrown into something with no build up, other than they are dragon slayers.

This chapter isn’t not bad it really is pretty decent, but it’s failings are still very note worthy.

Final Verdict: 5/10

  • Average but done decently
  • good tension building
  • But some poor structure
[Werewolf AU] When You Don’t Know What Mating Is and You Ask Them If You Two Can Do It (BTS)

Requested by a lovely anon <3 (you had heard another pack member talking about it with their mate)

*Don’t own the gif/s yo*

Author: Laymedown

NAMJOON: He would try to dismiss it at first as truthfully this wasn’t the way he wanted to tell you. With your constant persistence in the matter, he would eventually tell you. Also admitting he wished he could have done it in a more romantic way.

YOONGI: When you asked him, you didn’t expect such a casual response. He loved you, and whether he used the term sex or mating didn’t mean much to him. You were already his and he yours, he didn’t care for a ritual to put that in stone.

HOSEOK: He would be so tempted to just show you without explaining, but he knew that it wasn’t the right way to do it. He would tell you, almost in a hurry though. Since you brought it up, he really wanted nothing more than to take you for his own.

SEOKJIN: He would be the most serious one out of all of his pack mates. He would explain what mating was and what it entailed in his pack, making sure you understood everything, including how he felt about you.

JIMIN: He would be a laughing fit when you asked him as it came out of the blue. Not even knowing where to begin, he would have to take a few deep breaths because he did really want to talk about it seriously with you.

TAEHYUNG: No doubt, when you asked him, he would ask you if you wanted him to show you what mating was instead of explaining it. Then in his deep husky voice, he would ask if you were ready to be his, before kissing the nape of your neck.

JUNGKOOK: His cheeks would be as red as an apple. He hadn’t had the courage to talk about sex/mating with you yet, let alone describe what mating meant. It would take him a few tries, but eventually he would tell you with burning ears and cheeks.

Anxiety is red. Not the dark red that my mom likes but bright red like stop signs or an emergency exit that I can’t seem to find. Red like ink marks all over a paper you thought you did well on. Red like I bit my lip too hard and now my mouth tastes like blood.

Depression is blue. The kind that is mixed with a little bit of grey. Blue like the color of the clouds right before it rains and you can’t find the sun. Blue like it is starting to get dark outside and you can’t tell where the sky ends and the ocean begins. Blue like the eyes of someone you used to love.


Love is yellow. Not the kind I hate that is too bright but the soft kind. Yellow like sunlight pouring through an open window onto my skin. Like light yellow daisies. Yellow like the faded pages of old love poems.

the wonder woman inspired starco soulmate au no one asked for

ao3 link


Everyone knows that when Star Butterfly falls, she falls hard — and fast. She falls like a shooting star, leaving traces of it in the sky, but very easy to miss. Sometimes it’s obvious, but when she truly falls — when her heart can’t seem to stop falling from the sky — it’s the most silent and quickest thing there’s ever been.

But for Marco Diaz, it’s a whole different story. He falls slowly, like the sun as it falls on the horizon. It’s warm and soft around the edges, but ever present. He falls gently, giving enough time to know what he’s getting into and to accept it, waiting for the stars to appear out before he’s finally in love.

And sometimes, the shooting star burns out before the sun can even be given the chance to fall.

      They were words Dean would soon regret. For years, Castiel was the abyss where pop culture references went to die. Dean could not recall how many times he’d mention a movie or song only to be met with that (admittedly charming) vacant stare that would find itself pasted on Cas’s face. And Dean, great guy that he was, liked the guy regardless. It kept slipping his mind that, for over a year now, Castiel walked around with Metatron’s gift. He had gone from being culturally clueless to a savant. It was a fact that was easy to neglect - the forces of the universe seemed to be intent on keeping them apart.


       So really, it wasn’t so strange that he’d been so assured in his assertion, made after a few midday beers he was sharing with Cas, a sort of impromptu welcome back to the bunker from being-ripped-to-shreds-by-Leviathan-and-resurrected-with-amnesia-to-remember-who-you-are-only-before-going-insane-and-then-ending-up-in-Purgatory-only-to-be-freed-to-be-Naomi’s-minion-and-then-kind-of-sort-of-being-responsible-for-the-fall-of-all-angelkind-losing-your-grace-and-becoming-human-being-responsible-for-the-celestial-civil-war-living-on-stolen-grace-watching-me-get-turned-into-a-demon-and-then-just-sort-of-be-a-real-dick-for-a-year-get-your-grace-back-only-to-have-me-beat-it-out-of-you-nearly-again-and-then-the-Darkness-and-then-the-curse-and-holy-hell-I-thought-I-had-a-rough-couple-of-years.

three worlds theory

Warning: Shitload of crappy, awkward screenshots and LQ gifs ahead. But it’ll be worth it.

This is not an analysis that attempts to formulate a hard, foolproof storyline, but rather, it is an interpretation of why the chosen colours are associated with certain scenes/members, and the meanings they might represent to the relevant member. More literal than figurative.

Get your colour wheels out, children.


Right from the get-go we have a scene of Jungkook who appears to be just waking up. While some may feel his awakening marks the beginning of the events about to unfold throughout the video, I believe he is only waking up after everything has already happened. The paint streaks on the wall resemble the aftermath of an epic explosion, which we will go into later on.


In this scene we can safely assume that Taehyung seems to have entered a limbo of sorts because of the standstill on the entire set. The faceless figure on the left hand side is Hoseok, and proof of why that is so is in the screenshot on the right. We’ll see the white portion of the sleeve again later in Hoseok’s individual cuts.

I want to draw focus into the choice of colour in the left screenshot. Seeing as how the red and blue (i.e two worlds) are shown meshed together, can we assume that this could be a void space between Red World and Blue World? Taking it one step further— could the choice to use blue at the center and red at the sidelines be reasonable grounds to say that Taehyung seems to belong more to the Blue World than Red?
