I am listening to pirate metal and enjoying it greatly. This is a thing.  and  yeah I spent an hour listening to Alestorm. AND ENJOYING IT.
You talk as though you know me
as though you know what I am
when I am alone.
You don't.
I don't see how you ever could.

I do.
You're shaking your head like I'm lying
but I'm not.
I know you.
I know you're afraid of loneliness,
afraid you'll find out you're less than what you think you are,
afraid to find out that you're normal,
that one day you will lose your ability to laugh
because some days it feels like, like, depression isn't just an exaggeration
of the sadness you feel when you're... alone.

Hey.
Hey, don't cry, don't turn away from me-


HOW? How can I look at you?
No, don't touch me!
Who gave you the right?
You have no RIGHT to look at me like that,
like, like-

Like what? Like I love you?
Like I desire you?
Like I find you incredibly attractive,
even when your nose is leaking.


Why? Why are you- why are you the one?
The one who makes me smile even when I'm crying,
why can you look at me and see ME?
And don't give me that bullshit about how you 'love' me.
Love doesn't exist.

No? Then how about this.
If, a year from now, January 18, at 4:03pm exactly,
I tell you I love you,
you agree to marry me.
And for the rest of your life,
I'll prove love does exist.


...fine
Your palms are sweaty. Let go.

What was that?

I said, let go of my hand.
Your palms are sweaty. And cold.

No, no, you said 'fine'.
Are you agreeing to marry me?


That's not what you said!
You said-

I know what I said.
Do you know what I said?
Do you know what you said?


I know what I said.
You know I'll never love you back, though.

How can you never love me back,
when love doesn't exist?
I know it exists, but you don't believe it does,
so how can you never do something that you don't think exists in the first place?


I- I hate it when you're right.

Yes. And a year from now, I'll prove it.
Now, how about some dinner?
A Daring Proposal
.... sometimes, I really do question what the hell my muse is trying to say. The first line, and only the first line, is what popped into my head as I was answering messages and looking through all your lovely deviations. So I wrote that first line, and then the rest followed and I'm just... :shrug: I don't even know how to classify this conversation. Is this prose? Poetry? WHAT EVEN.
Loading...
tagged by the lovely :iconstarlightshoals: for a musical meme :D (feeling really lazy right now, so... I probably won't get to putting up links for these songs until later XD

Rules: 
1) Write down every letter in your name (You can use your username if you're not comfortable using your real one)
2) Write down a song that pops into your head beginning with each letter.
3) Count the number of letters and TAG that many people.

Of course Imma do this.

2015 Reading Challenge


[x] A book with more than 500 pages <The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss (OH MY GOODNESS IT'S FANTASTIC. YOU WILL SEE MANY CAPS, BUT THAT'S BECAUSE IT'S FREAKING AMAZING AND I WILL SHOUT IT OUT TO THE WORLD. The main character is super arrogant but the way it's written is just :iconinloveplz: because it is a hero telling his story after the legend has ended, it is a hero become innkeeper, a hero retired who has stories abounding about him and here he is, about to tell his own story himself.)>
[] A classic romance
[x] A book that became a movie <Fight Club by Chuck Palahnuik (HOLY SHIT. In many ways it is disturbing and depressing and yet the writing is just absolutely brilliant, definitely suggest it for those who are ok with rather dark books)>
[] A book published in 2014
[] A book with a number in the title
[] A book written by someone under 30
[x] A book with non-human characters <The Damned Busters by Matthew Hughes (OH MY GOODNESS IT'S SO AMUSING I mean. Hell went on STRIKE. YOU HEARD ME. YEAH. IT'S FABULOUS AND YOU SHOULD READ IT, WHOEVER YOU ARE, YOU AWESOME PERSON WATCHING ME IN A HOPEFULLY NOT CREEPY MANNER)>
[x] A funny book <two parties, one tux* *and a short film about the grapes of wrath by Steven Goldman (a slightly lighter YA novel than the other books I've read but entertaining nevertheless, despite some predictability)>
[] A book by a female author
[] A mystery or thriller
[x] A book with a one word title <Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson (entertaining read, though I'd say it's written for the average teenage male, you know, pretty girl messing with his emotions, nerdy with a love of guns main character)>
[] A book of short stories
[] A book set in a different country
[] A non-fiction book
[] A popular author's first book
[x] A book by an author you love that haven't read yet <Hogfather by Terry Pratchett (oh my GOODNESS ANTHROPOMORPHIC now I can't remember the word but basically this book is someone trying to KILL SANTA. THE ANKH-MORPORK VERSION OF SANTA. YES. I WOULD SAY MORE, BUT THERE ARE SO MANY POSSIBLE SPOILERS SO JUST READ IT)>
[] A book a friend recommended
[] A Pulitzer-Prince winning book
[] A book based on a true story
[] A book at the bottom of your to-read list
[] A book your mother loves
[] A book that scares you
[] A book more than 100 years old
[] A book based entirely on its cover
[] A book you were supposed to read in school but didn't
[] A memoir
[x] A book you can finish in a day <Shadows in Flight by Orson Scott Card [not one of his best, at best an OK read, especially for those parts where he writes about his character's analysis of the human character]>
[] A book with antonyms in the title
[] A book set somewhere you always wanted to visit
[X] A book that came out in the year you were born <Feet of Clay by Terry Pratchett (yes, I'm on a Terry Pratchett spree right now but it's a SAM VIMES book and those are crime fiction with interesting looks on morality sometimes and Sam Vimes is like, my favourite of the Discworld characters. I also read Guards! Guards! which was the first time Pratchett wrote about Sam Vimes and it was just AWESOME especially because I know how badass the old drunkard would become so the character development was even more amazing!)>
[x] A book with bad reviews <50 Shades of Grey by E.L. James (so now you know why I almost NEED Pratchett's amazing writing to cleanse my mind of this... it has TERRIBLE reviews for good reason. Don't. Read Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde instead.)>
[x] A trilogy <The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson (alright, so, I just found it in the library, all three books and was like 'hey, I remember a trilogy being on this book list thing' so I borrowed all three books, didn't even look at the summary. Turns out, it's a war trilogy :heart: You may not know this, but I enjoy war novels. My favourite books tend to have war in them, so reading the first book, without reading the summary, and discovering it's pretty much my favourite genre/type of novel? Was awesome. Admittedly, I have not yet finished the trilogy but I will soon complete it!)>
[] A book from your childhood
[] A book with a love triangle
[] A book set in the future
[] A book set in high school
[] A book with a colour in the title
[] A book that made you cry
[] A book with magic <Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett (hey, it made it on the list! WHOOT. If you've been reading my comments, you will understand that this is the book where Pratchett first introduces Sam Vimes, drunkard captain of 3 coppers under him.)>
[] A graphic novel
[x] A book by an author you've never read before <The Wolf Gift by Anne Rice [she made me think about how authors often write about ideals, the sort of perfect you'd rarely if ever encounter in real life]>
[] A book you own but never read
[] A book that takes place in your hometown
[] A book that was originally written in a different language
[] A book set during Christmas <would Ankh-Morporkian Christmas count? XD>
[] A book written by an author with your same initials
[] A play
[] A banned book (SOMEONE SUGGEST ONE TO ME please)
[] A book based on or turned into a TV show
[] A book you started but never finished
  • Mood: Tired
  • Reading: Feet of Clay by Terry Pratchett
There is often so much visual appeal in your work,not literally of course, I'm talking about your metaphors and imagery, but what's even better is the sense of layers. All of your poetry has this personal sense to it, the feeling that each word means something to you, the writer, but it's also abstract. It's metaphorical, symbolic, and each line brings something of the reader's own memories to mind. I'm not saying that what you write is at all generic, but because it is not necessarily specific, it's written as your life's journey in a metaphorical sense and everyone who reads this is living, and can maybe find something to relate to, some line or stanza that makes them think and I really hope you keep writing like this because it means you're able to reach a wide audience and touch them, make them feel something and remind them that thinking and feeling is part of living.

Why do you cry, child,
Why are your tears so black?
What do you cry for,
What is it you lack?

Whatever wish you ask,
I'll grant it.
Whatever hope you hold,
I'll fulfill it.
Whatever dream you dream,
I'll make it come true.

For you see, child,
I am you.

A poem to go along with the picture by hgfdsasdfgh The picture is the ID =)

A high school Filipino Canadian female, and a violent bookworm, I enjoy arguing about the most inconsequential things. Fantasy fiction is my favourite genre, as well as romance and comedy. I have read many mangas, and watched a few animes. That's pretty much it?

That wonderful picture up there is by the magnificent :iconhgfdsasdfgh: :love: Thank you so much you marvelous friend!

Current Residence: On a planet on an arm of the spiral galaxy the Milky Way
Favourite genre of music: Usually upbeat, or ones whose message I like
Favourite style of art: Expressive, simple, or amazingly detailed and looks effortless
MP3 player of choice: One that I am unable to break.
Personal Quote: Live life to the fullest, because tomorrow may not arrive.

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! :iconicecreamchairplz:

Dear God, the sweet girl reading this is kind and I'm proud of her. Please help her live life to the fullest and bless her in her chosen field. Now, you're on the clock. In 9 minutes something will make you happy. Please share this with 15 girls you love. Remember, only for *girls*. If I don't get this back I'm obviously not a close friend. Now, I have a game for you, it's been played since 1977. Once you read this, you have to send it to 15 people. Your next 5 days will be like this: Day 1 - you will wake up to the biggest shock of your life. Day 2 - you will cross paths with an old friend you have missed. Day 3 - you will find yourself with a lot of money. Day 4 - your day will be perfect. Day 5 - the love of your life will kiss you. ....if you don't forward this, your next 5 days will be the exact opposite. Don't break this. Send it to 14 friends in 10 minutes. It's not that hard. Whoever sent this to you must care about you
