Armageddon Content

Oh, and for all those who have been asking me to release a chapter from The Dying of the Light early, like I did with a few of the other books, Armageddon Outta Here is the only place you'll find it, right after all the previously published short stories, the rare short stories, The End of the World, and brand new stories featuring the Dead Men, Gordon Edgley, Valkyrie and vampires, and a story-that-turned-into-a-novella, Get Thee Behind Me, Bubba Moon.

Oh, and this is for the people who like their videos to fit their webpages a little bit better...

Pffft.

Ooh! Sounds exciting! :)

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

Wow, yay!!!!

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

Oh, first! :D
*realises she missed the previous post*
*goes back to read that one*
*and point out this one*
:P

Valkyrie V. Cain - Ivy the Fangirl said...

Awesome.

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

I am dying for these to come out. The rest of my life has been pretty much meaningless.

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

Hahaha I missed the previous post too.

Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

DANG two posts in a row

Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

*shrugs*
I'm fine. You need more help than I do.

(Post from earlier)

Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

Within the first ten :D

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

Hey, Val! :3

@Jedi: :P
I'm still behind by two books, so I need to catch up first. D:

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

I have never been able to comment so early. That is the penalty of living down under.

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

Taia: They're really, really good.

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic C'était la vérité. said...

COOL.

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

@Jedi: Yeah, I've never been at first before, in my three years. I guess people weren't expecting two in a day? :P
*laughs* I'd imagine so. :P
I'm hoping to catch up this summer, but I think it'll be weird having three so close together, plus the short stories. Also I'm kind of scared, because I hear a lot about feelings destruction. O_O

*hugs Fabi*

Loki of Asgard said...

Ah. Hello, Midgardians

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

Taia: Destruction? Oh. Yeah. A LOT. Be prepared, honey. Your heart will burn, wither and die.

Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

Hi Loki

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

*kneels before Loki*

Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

Pfft. :)
I am incapable of kneeling.

Loki of Asgard said...

*looks down at the one kneeling* You, have intelligence your fellows in this meager palace of Midgard you call Blogland. Your fellow Midgardians should take care to see what you did.

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

*rises and slaps Loki*
That was for New York!

Loki of Asgard said...

((I also shall apologize in adancex if I sound incoherent, I woke up at 10am with 3 hours of sleep.))

Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

XD OMG YES
*high fives Jedi-TARDIS-Chick*

Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

That was absolutely brilliant.

Loki of Asgard said...

Violent aren't you? If you plan to kill me, there is a line.

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

*high fives Elleni*

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

I have been told I am a violent person.

Loki of Asgard said...

Where is the man you claim is your Golden God? Has he not the courage to face this place? I find it odd, a so called god cannot even face his own subjects.

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

*hugs Fabi again, because her picture :) :) :) *

@Jedi: Aw, man. Still, at least I won't have to wait between them, so it'll be more like one huge punch in the emotions, rather than repeated destruction spanning over the space of three years. :P

Hey, Elleni!

Hello, Loki! I hope you manage to sleep better tonight. :)

Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

Hi Taia!

I really am curious to what would happen if Loki and Derek got in a fight XD

Loki of Asgard said...

I would win, Derek has not the abilities to win against a true god.

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

I don't know Taia, it's very emotional.

Inconvenience said...

But the Golden God is a true god, right?

Dragona Pine - Geth Platform said...

(Sorry I poofed)

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

But you are a DEMI-GOD, and Derek is THE GOLDEN GOD. Plus, he's a black belt in karate.

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

Loki of Asgard said...

If your so called Golden God wanted to fight, you would be amazingly disappointed. He has not the courage to come comment on this blog of his, why would he dare fight me? He is nothing but a Midgardian who pretends to be above everyone, but he will kneel to me in the end, you all will.

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

*bursts out laughing*
HAHAHAHA YOU ARE HILARIOUS!!!

Loki of Asgard said...

He has Midgardian training, I have Asgardian. I am a god, a true god. Derek pretends to be one, when in reality he is not.

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

-_- I will slap you again.

Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

XD
Pfft
I wonder how Derek's reacting to this

Dragona Pine - Geth Platform said...

This unit will never kneel, of Asgard-Loki.

Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

Neither will I

Inconvenience said...

But the Golden God controls the Faceless ones and the fate of your favorite and soon to be favorite characters...

Loki of Asgard said...

The way you speak of him, I truly doubt he is reading this. No doubt someone will send him a tweet, but in reality, he is a coward, he will kneel to me when I rule this realm.

Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

Geth, Silente needs help.
(She's still in the previous comment section)

Inconvenience said...

He's probably laughing at your foolishness. Check your mirror.

Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

No. He reads the comments. He doesnt reply, but he reads them. I think... I mean, he knows what's going on and stuff.

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

@Jedi: I'm sure I'll (probably) survive. :P

Hey, Dragona!
*points* I got first! :3


xD
I think Derek could win with a combination of feelings demolition, excellent writing skill, and egotistic humour. :P

Dragona Pine - Geth Platform said...

(Taia - *claps* Well done!)

Inconvenience said...

Agreed^

Loki of Asgard said...

Derek's downfall is his ego.

Dragona Pine - Geth Platform said...

(I have to go now. Bye!)

*deactivates*

Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

Taia, wise words.

Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

GETH NOOO Silente needs help...

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

Yeah. Well, if Derek IS reading this.... SU'CUY DEREK! (Hi in Mando'a, language of the Mandalorians). I am a fangirl; I am weird; I am proud!

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

Gtg bye!

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

Oh and Loki, are you saying your downfall isn't YOUR ego? *smirks*

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

See ya Elleni!

Loki of Asgard said...

Do not get your hopes up, Midgardians. Your god is not a god, he is a mortal.

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

Aw, Bye, Dragona! *waves*

@Elleni: *bows* :P

@Loki: I respectfully differ. :P

Well, Derek used to read and comment, from time to time. I don't think he comes on here as much any more, but I expect he does still read the comments, even if he tends not to comment himself, so much. :) ^^

mbd/msd

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

For now... *evil laugh*

Loki of Asgard said...

That mortal has an ego bigger then my own, at least I know I'm capable of controlling Midgard.

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

I wish Derek would comment, or have Twitter conversations, just occasionally. I want to be an author, so I love getting advice from authors.

Loki of Asgard said...

I know he often goes on his Twitter, I know not why he does not come here. I expect he fears his Minions, which is quite a sad statement.

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

Well, farewell my fellow Midgardians! Farewell Loki. I am going to go hand out with my fellow Avengers and show Steve Star Wars and Doctor Who. Bye!

Inconvenience said...

Perhaps he's too busy?

Loki of Asgard said...

I suspect he is, which is fine by me. I just will have to wait longer to murder, which I can wait. I have years and years and years, whereas this mortal I want does not.

Inconvenience said...

Kay then

Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

He's probably busy. And often, others who don't get the chance to talk to him gets jealous. He used to Skype, but he got too many requests.

Inconvenience said...

Pity, but it's for a good cause!

Loki of Asgard said...

I heard one of your own, Zafira Kerias, met him via Skype.

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

@Loki: If he feared his minions, why would he go to Twitter? O-o
I think likelihood is that Twitter is BIG in terms of ease of social contact and links, but compact so easy use and access. It's ideal, really.
Then, the Blog is good for getting lengthy written word, and keeping easily documented updates, and also for us weirdos who like somewhere to talk, and those of us too scared by new social media to use the Twitter-machine. :P

Inconvenience said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

Really??? LUCKY D:
Do any of you know his Skype ID...? OvO

Loki of Asgard said...

I believe he fears you, he can't come to comment in fear of you. I wonder, what would happen if he came on.

Loki of Asgard said...

I heard Zafira say he never is on, but she said he was the day he called her, November 2013.

Elleni the Rainbow Goddess of Creativity said...

:O *gasp*

Inconvenience said...

Luckyyyyyyy

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

But, idk.
If people started asking him questions on here again, he might begin replying more again. Maybe that would seem logical? I don't know.

@Loki: But I can just go to Twitter. It'd be illogical to hide from what you fear by going where MORE of them have quicker access to you. :P
(I could find some links to times he's come on in the past, if that'd help your wonderings. :P)

Inconvenience said...

ALRIGHTY THEN! Who has questions?

Loki of Asgard said...

If you wanted to know what happened when Zafira was Skyped, I would email her. I know not if she is ghosting.

bellagaunt13@gmail.com

That is her email.

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

*...Doesn't really have any questions at immediate arms, actually. xD*

I don't have the imagination that I used to, okaY? :P

Inconvenience said...

I've been wondering this for a while, and I even asked Mr. Landy this, but does Skulduggery have a hyoid? I'm dying to know.

Inconvenience said...

But imagination is like sugar for the brain!

Ivy Shade: Grand Mage of the Canadian Sanctuary, Queen of the Land of Rainbow Hamsters, Reader of Books, and General of the Candy Army said...

*starts dancing* I can't wait for AOH!!!!!

Loki of Asgard said...

Many of you cannot wait.

Inconvenience said...

But can you, oh mighty Loki of Asgard?

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

@Inconvenience: O.O That is a fantastic question.

And- I know! D:
It's probably to do with my having not been reading much lately. I'm getting back into it. I think I'm BEGINNING to imagine better again. :P

Also, I just realised, I didn't say hello, yet. And then I realised, I'm not sure if we've met, before, Inconvenience.
So, I'll say it's a pleasure to meet you. *offers a cookie* :)

Loki of Asgard said...

I do not care either way.

Fabi S. / Moss Cryptic C'était la vérité. said...

-_-

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

*huggles Fabi* ?

Inconvenience said...

Hi Taia! Thanks for the cookie~
*noms*
I'm fairly new around Bloglandia (that's what we're calling it, yes?) and I'm not quite so new to the series. Pleasure to meet you!

It's terrible that you haven't been reading much though... but you're getting back into it! Yay!

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

@Inconvenience: :) Blogland tends to be the common name, but I don't think there are exactly rules, so... :)

*nods* It is, rather. :P And, thank you! :)

Inconvenience said...

Dangit! So close. Blogland/Bloglandia is pretty cool, from what I've seen. :D

Loki of Asgard said...

Yes, we roleplay a lot.

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

*laughs* Yeah, I've always thought so, too. C:

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

Okay, I'm heading off now.
*offers hugs if anybody wants 'em*

Bye, all!

Octaboona Anessen Ambrosius said...

I want the hugs Taia fear not! They shall go to a good and caring home.

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

*was curious about the fate of her hugs, and is now very glad to see them falling to good arms*

It's lovely to see you, Octa. :)

(I think I'll probably still be gone. I'm tired, but I don't want to stop drawing, and so I'm kind of just stuck between the two, and I just reopened this tab as if that would solve the problem. Unsurprisingly, it hasn't. :P)

GOOD MORNINGGGGG

Star Inkbright said...

DID YOU MISS ME????

Probably not, haha. :)

ANYWAY, hi! :)

I had a fab time in Paris, thank you very much. The food was awful and the French have no comprehension of laws and numerous disasters befall me and my friends. But it was fun. :) :) :)

Star Inkbright said...

But now I have CATCH UP WORK :O

So I'll be doing that, I think. :)

Star Inkbright said...

Anyway.

THE FOOD O_O

So every day they (the hostel) gave us a packup, which consisted of a baguette, a pack of crisps, and a weird cakey thing. The crisps were weird French crisps, and one of the most popular flavours was Bolognaise. And, ew. Bolognaise crisps are YUCK. So every day it became a kind of race to not get Bolognaise ones.
The barbeque ones were alright and the chicken-and-gravy ones were nice . . .
The baguettes, though. D: I usually like baguette. Ham and lettuce baguette, that sounds nice, yes? But the first day there were gherkins and the second day there was mayo (I don't like mayo. And there was lots and it wasn't nice by normal people standards D:) and the third day it was return of the pickles and the fourth day there wasn't any ham, but there was chicken and MUSTARD. With mayo.
-_-
By the fourth day people were just chucking them in the bin without trying them.
I ate half of mine, and I didn't enjoy it. :P
And anyway. Each night we went out for dinner. Which sounds cool. Like, French restaurants.
The first night we went to this pizza place. Which gave us some weird pizza that was more like crackers. Like, those cracker stuff. And it didn't have cheese, it just had spices and the topping.
The first one, sprinkled with bacon, was okay. The second one, which was this weird meat stuff, was DISGUSTING. Spice overload. D:
I couldn't eat it and I can usually eat things I dislike (*points to the chicken-mustard-mayo-and-lettuce baguettes*).
The second night, we went to this place which had really cool artwork on the walls, and that looked like quite a nice place, but they gave up this sticky rice and bird.
They fed us bird. -_-
Okay, they said it was pork (or Sir did), but it was totally not. I mean . . . it had the texture of bird and the shape of bird and everything.
I didn't mind it, coz I'm not fussy, but still.
The fourth day, we went to this self-service restaurant, and that was horribly confusing and it was NOT CLEAR where we were meant to go and also, you could only have meat-and-potato, or meat-and-vegetable, or potato-and-vegetable, so I was just like HAVE YOU PEOPLE NOT HEARD OF A BALANCED DIET, and they gave you massive enormous portions of the potato/vegetable. O_O Like what.
And the burgers were raw and the chicken was weird and the veg wasn't that nice.
And then you could either have a pudding or a salad. So me and my friends went for puddings. And Hollie (that's not me, that's another Holly/ie) went for chocolate mousse, but me and C and Maddy went for the more-abundant-in-number yoghurt with fruit on top. In a plastic cup. And the fruit was tinned. And we started eating these and we realised the yoghurt was natural yoghurt and it was DISGUSTING. Eww.
So we looked around and saw some packets of sugar at the place where they have sugar and straws and stuff, so I went and got a few of those, and we put sugar in the yoghurt and it just tasted of yoghurt and it was fine. :)
(C had two packets of sugar and some Pepsi Max in hers. XD)
And we were like THIS IS HOW THEY MAKE YOGHURT. THEY GET NATURAL YOGHURT AND PUT SUGAR IN IT. O_O
And I was like INSTEAD OF BUYING NORMAL YOGHURT, WE SHOULD JUST BUY NATURAL YOGHURT AND PUT SUGAR IN IT!
And C was like, but natural yoghurt is more expensive.
And I was like WHAT TEH FUCKKKKKKK WHY IT'S LESS TASTY :O
Anyway. :)
So fun. XD We were laughing our heads off. Now I know why my mum goes off to try out restaurants with her friends.
And the third night, we went to the Hard Rock Café, which gave you the options of a burger, a cheeseburger, a veggie burger, and a chicken and mustard sandwich burger thing.
And it was THE NICEST FOOD WE'D HAD ALL WEEK not including the KFC we bought at the service station on the way home SO WHAT THE FUCK.
-_-

Star Inkbright said...

Also, I cracked the screen of my phone.

You know that phone I bought a week before I went away?

That really nice new Samsung?

IT FLEW OUT OF MY BAG ONTO THE CONCRETE OF THE SERVICE STATION AND TEH SCREEN CRACKED O_O O_O

Yup. C: I'm smart.

General Luciana Clover Scáth; Leader Of the New Land Of Stickers; Prophet Of The New Order (AKA the Insane Khaleesi Of the Rainbow People); Grand Mage of Skuttlebuggia/Little Bird said...

STAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR *attacklehuggles* I MISSED YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!

Star Inkbright said...

@Mushroom: YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!

*attacklehugs*

SOMEONE MISSED ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

I felt so weird over in real life! :O Over here I seem kind of normal, but there, I was roomates with some weird people and I was the strangest person they'd ever met. And stuff I say that seems pretty normal to me can just send everyone into peals of laughter because it's so odd and I'm just like WHAT ARE YOU LAUGHING AT :O

*hugs* :) :)

General Luciana Clover Scáth; Leader Of the New Land Of Stickers; Prophet Of The New Order (AKA the Insane Khaleesi Of the Rainbow People); Grand Mage of Skuttlebuggia/Little Bird said...

Going for a shower, bbs! Missed you Staaaaaar! *cuddles*

Star Inkbright said...

Also, there's this song, and C was listening to it, and she was like "This is really sad", so she played it for us, and I started crying.
And at first Hollie and Maddy were like AWWWWH.
And I was like, it's okay, I cry all the time.
(Coz I do. :O)
And then C started playing it/singing it just to make me cry.
Because she found it amusing.
And then when I was in the shower, I turned the shower off and I heard that they were playing it loudly so I could hear it in the shower and I was just like VERY FUNNY GUYS.
And then they'd done something to the shower door so I couldn't open it so I had to stay there and listen to it.


They LOCKED ME IN TEH SHWOER AND MADE ME CRY BECAUSE THEY FOUND IT AMUSING O_O

And later they were playing Les Mis for me and crowding around me to watch me cry.

. . .

-_-

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE FRIENDS WITH A SADIST

So I was crying, like, two or three times every day, which is . . . pretty much average . . . but eh. :P

THAT SONG THOUGH :O

And also, Hollie lost her bracelet at Musée d'Orsay.
So we were looking for it.
And I mentioned to C that if it had been me who'd lost it, she'd be going on about it being sad and lonely to make me cry.
So then C started doing that.
And I was crying.
:P
And then I was really concerned over the bracelet, so when Maddy's jaw was locking out of place so she couldn't move it I was just like I HOPE HOLLIE'S BRACELET'S OKAY :O

Plus you know my phone screen cracked?
Well, some bits of glass were coming out of the screen. And I was scared I had some in my eye because my eye was hurting so I was just like I NEED TO CRY TO GET THE GLASS OUT IF THERE IS SOME.
And then I was like C MAKE ME CRY.
So she was like um um.
Then she told me about Les Mis and I was crying. :P
(I didn't have glass in my eye, I think. I think I was just tired. :P)

TIRED.
We set off for Paris at midnight, so I went to bed at seven pm, and I didn't go to sleep, so I was still awake when we left.
And then I didn't manage to sleep on the coach.
I feel asleep for an hour at about ten in the morning, but eh.
Then we went on this boat trip down this famous river or whatever and I was falling asleep so badly, like literally falling asleep sitting up, which was partially because it was really warm and stuff but eh, and I took in NONE of what was happening so -_- because I think it would have been interesting.

Star Inkbright said...

Fours, Mushroom! :(

Star Inkbright said...

And then I thought of domething abut that.
So I wrote it fown.
Quickly.
On the coach.
So it might make no sense.
When you're cold, you're more alert, because evolution. We needed to be alert. But there's no particular reason for us to be relaxed when we're warm, eo maybe that is our natural state and if we weren't alert when cold, we would just be MEHHHHH SLEEP all the time.
But we'd probably get quite far in life, because you have electrical impules from external stimuli whrn awake but when you dream, you alsobhave lots of electrical impulses. Plus it's been proven that pople who daydream think better, so maybe we would even get further in life.

Star Inkbright said...

AND -

me and C were sat next to each other on the coach, and we were at the front, just behind the teachers.
So they could hear our conversations.
So THEY COULD HEAR OUR CONVERSATIONS.
And about halfway through the trip, one of them found us and told us how great our conversations were and how entertaining they found them. :O
(Oh gosh.)
And then at the end of the trip, they were giving out awards. Like, awards for breaking furniture, and awards for taking selfies, and stuff.
And me and C got ours for our conversations.
I'm actually so proud of it. :) It says 'Parisian Philosopher' on it. :)
I TOLD YOU THAT WE GOIT FURTHER IN PHYSICS WHEN WE TALKED TO WHEN WE DID THE WORK. :)

Star Inkbright said...

YUP just spamming, here . . .

Anyway, our coach driver was called Colin. And for some reason we all got really fond of him. I mean, he was old with like grey hair, and whenever he did something, like if his phone went off or if he beeped his horn or if he told us not to leave rubbish on the coach, we were just like AWWWWWWWWWWWWH COLINNNNNNNNNN <3
And we parodied this song for him.
"Colin you can drive my bus
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Colin you can drive my bus
And Colin I love you"
(Beep beep, beep beep . . .)

And when they changed drivers on the way back at Doncaster, when the new driver got on we were all singing this song and they we were shouting to Colin how much we loved him and the new driver was just like O_O

:P

And anyway.
The second night, C was laughing whilst she was eating, so she INHALED this piece of rice. O_O And it went down her trachea and into her LUNG. She had a piece of rice in her LUNG. And she could feel it in there, and she was kind of like O_O :O and coughing. :P
And Hollie suggested that she inhale some water to try and wash it out, so she was attempting to deliberately choke on water, and then she did and she was coughing and spluttering and having water come out her nose and was like DAMN YOU HOLLIE. :P
And she named this piece of rice Colin, after the bus driver, and we got quite fond of Colin, really, thinking about what he must be thinking and how he was contributing to the conversation by making C cough.
But then she coughed him up that night.
And swallowed him.
So he's dead. :(
And when we visited the Louvre, there was this giant glass pyramid over it, and some little glass pyramids next to it. So the big one was C, the little ones were B, and the people who were going inside the big pyramid were Colins. :) :)

YEAH I should probably stop ranting now . . .

Star Inkbright said...

Bury all your secrets in my skin
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again

So if you love me, let me go
And run away before I know
My heart is just too dark to care
I can't destroy what isn't there
Deliver me into my fate
If I'm alone I cannot hate
I don't deserve to have you
My smile was taken long ago
If I can change I hope I never know

I still press your letters to my lips
And cherish them in parts of me that savour every kiss
I couldn't face a life without your light
But all of that was ripped apart
When you refused to fight

So save your breath, I will not hear
I think I made it very clear
You couldn't hate enough to love
Is that supposed to be enough?
I only wish you weren't my friend
Then I could hurt you in the end
I never claimed to be a saint
My own was banished long ago
It took the death of hope to let you go

So break yourself against my stones
And spit your pity in my soul
You never needed any help
You sold me out to save yourself
And I won't listen to your shame
You ran away - you're all the same
Angels lie to keep control
My love was punished long ago
If you still care, don't ever let me know
If you still care, don't ever let me know

You have to listen to it, really.
And you see -
he loves her so much, and it hurts so much, it hurts so much to love her, that he's hating instead, he's hating because it's easier and it's the only way he can survive, so he's telling himself she was horrible, he's telling himself she never liked him anyway, she was one of them, and they're just all the same, and he's going to sit there in this pool of horrible awful negativity for the rest of his life, believing she hates him and the world hates him and he hates them and hating everyone because it hurts too much to get out of it. And he's probably never going to love again and never going to be happy again because he won't ever get out of this pool of negativity and -

SNOW SNOW!!!! SILENTE!!!! *supermegatacklehugsofdoom*

Hai.

Star Inkbright said...

@Snow: I don't have a problem with acknowledging it or going 'awwwwh'. I just have issues experiencing the necessary emotion. :P

You know how I'm really emotional?
Well, in some ways I experience a lack of emotion, which is kinda weird.
Like rollercoasters.
We went to Parc Asterix on the Thursday, and - you see, I don't normally go on rollercoasters. So as soon as we got there my friends headed straight for the rollercoaster with a big drop and five loop the loops, and I was just like WHAT THE HELL I WON'T SURVIVE THIS WHY THE FUCK AM I DOING THIS, so I wnet on it and closed my eyes and focused on keeping my head back, and then I got off and I was just like "Oh. Was that it?"
So then we went on another rollercoaster, and because I'd been fine on the first one I kept my eyes open, and I kind of watched the track in front and ducked when we went under something. And C was just screaming her head off, and I was just kind of calm, so I was analysing the fact that I was reacting calmly to this. And then we got off and everyone was just laughing and sayig how great it was and I was just like . . .
I just hadn't got much fear from it and hadn't got much excitement from it either. I'd just been calm, mostly.
It was like the Hard Rock Café all over again. :O Everyone had gone in there and freaked out, and I just hadn't understood what the big deal was and was freaking out about the fact I hadn't freaked out because I was just like I MUST BE MISSING SOMETHING HERE.
Third rollercoaster. We wandered around, ate our disgusting lunch, got lost, and then we found this AMAZING rollercoaster with these loop the loops and it was really fast and you were kind of attached to the thingy with your legs dangling so you swirled around the track and spun upside down and stuff.
So we were like WE'RE GOING ON THAT.
And there was a queue to get in the queue, but we didn't care and jumped in it.
One and three quarters hours, we were in that queue.
-_-
IT WAS SO LONG OHMYGOSH AND WE GOT SO IMPATIENT AND BORED.
And this time, I was persuading myself to enjoy it, so I got on it (FINALLY YOU HAVE NO IDEA) and I was like OOH THIS IS COOL I'M UPSIDE DOWN.
And when I got off I was laughing, and idk if that was me or just my body, because my hands were shaking like C's do. And even when you get off a rollercoaster and you're fine, your hands are shaking.
But anyway.
And I was like THAT WAS COOL. BUT IT WAS NOT WORTH TWO HOURS OF QUEUEING.
And I bought an ice lolly and everything and I was totally calm at that point and I was just like -
this is just not that emotionall strong.
It's not emotionally longlasting.
And C was just like IT'S NOT ABOUT /LONGLASTING/ EMOTION.
And I think the fact that I forget negative emotions quickly has something to do with it, or the fact I cry pretty much every day and that - that HURTS, you know? Crying hurts. And then you feel melancholy afterwards if it's been a lot of crying. And with that going on so regularly, I'm used to emotion.
And idk. :/
Plus you know how I forgot how things felt? Like when I went caving, and I was like THIS IS AWFUL and my friend was like THIS IS AWFUL, and then we came out and my friend went THAT WAS AWFUL and I went THAT WAS FANTASTIC!
So I was quite happy with my memories of it afterwards, like THAT WAS FANTASTIC!
And it was really cool.
I mean, I was upside down. That was weird.
But idk. It wasn't worth all that queueing, and everyone else seem to think it was, and just -
I get bigger emotional reactions from other things, you know?

And yeah. It's weird how I'm unemotional when I'm really emotional.

Sorry. Self-analysis. I needed to write it out at some point.

Hello Jubi!



Thanks Star. And I just... I'm just frustrated by Lux and Imp and my distinct lack of money... And the lack of jobs in my area. I have no money and no way of getting any and it's just frustrating, because that also means I can't go out places, which affects my writing and ugh. It's even more annoying because I am not getting anywhere with Imp and I just ???!!!. Sorry.

Star Inkbright said...

I suppose you see people digging themselves into these holes, and you know what they're doing wrong, but you don't know how to tell them. And if you did tell them, you'd just really upset them and make things worse, and nothing much would be improved. And you just sit there watching people dig these holes, and you just don't know how to make things work, how you can make these people in holes understand they're digging them and make the people outside the hole understand that they're not digging them on purpose.
And I come across these situations in real life, like with C's friend who's stretching her ear - you know, putting stretchers in it so there'll be a massive hole in it? And C tells her that it's a stupid thing to do and that she'll ruin her chances of getting a good job, but she's not listening. And I don't really know how to make her understand that she is damaging her future (C's mum's a nurse, and they hired this woman for a job, and she went to Cambridge and had really good qualifications and also just seemed perfect for the job, and they were like "Oh she's really good", but then she came into work in the nurses uniform which had short sleeves, and she had tattoos covering all of her arms, so they fired her and got someone else.
These things make a difference.), and if I did, I'm not sure I'd be able to tell her, because I'd upset her and I don't want to do that and I don't want her to dislike me.
*shrugs*
And that's offline, but I've also seen tons of these situations online, and I see people in these holes at the moment. And it's not physical damage they're doing, it's kind of . . . emotional states, and that can be more painful in a way.
And I'm not going to say anything to you people - I know the ones I mean, you don't - because like I said, I don't know what to say and if I did I'm not sure I could say it, but I love you all - that's EVERYONE - and if you ever discover you're in a hole and it's too deep to just jump out of, then I can try and help you out, okay?

Star Inkbright said...

Also -

it's so tentative online . . . I mean, offline, you can be kind of mean to people but it doesn't matter, whereas if I say something to one of you that isn't - I don't even have to same something mean, I just have to NOT be nice, then I end up feeling bad because people react too strongly to things.
And I call C mean and she calls me abnormal, and she makes me cry and laughs at me and I have a go at her for pretty much everyone opinion she states (she said that fake girls were more likely to be raped, and I was like yeah probably, and she was really surprised because she'd been expecting me to go "C!" and immediately jump down her throat and start having a go at her, which kind of shows how often I do it. :/
Although she said that the Nazis kept the streets cleaner and I was like yeah but they tortured the Jews and she said "Well, I'm not a Jew."
. . .
WHAT THE FUCK), whereas here I just have to constantly be nice to all of you (I don't. I'm not infallible) or I feel like I've done something wrong.

So I guess I'm sayingggggggg . . .
I guess I'm saying that I love you all, and that you should have more confidence in that fact.

Star, you know, if any of us are digging ourselves holes we can't get out of, you should speak up. Sure it's better late than never, but... Speaking up before things gets too bad can save a lot of emotional - and physical - torment.

General Luciana Clover Scáth; Leader Of the New Land Of Stickers; Prophet Of The New Order (AKA the Insane Khaleesi Of the Rainbow People); Grand Mage of Skuttlebuggia/Little Bird said...

Sometimes you can only be nice by being mean and if you truly care about someone you should be able to accept that they may kick off at you and fuck will it hurt, but... That doesn't matter. Because what's most important is that they are okay.

If someone looks like they're going to end up hurting themselves, you need to say something. I get what you mean and it's completely understandable, but... I disagree with your approach completely. Easier to kill a sapling than cut down a forest, after all.

Star Inkbright said...

@Mushroom: I know.
But I did that once and I really upset them and then I realised maybe I wasn't so correct as I thought I was, which often happens, I mean you can accuse someone and then find lots of evidence to the contrary and then you're like "Sorry, I'm wrong", and then you just feel really bad for bringing it up. And also, most of the time you can see why people do things. I mean, with C's friend, she's basically being an idiot and although we'll upset her it's better than having her ruin her job prospects because basically, stretching = bad and not stretching = good, but it's rarely as simple as that, and often it's metaphoricalstretching = bad in some ways and not mephoricalstretching = possibly good in that it won't be bad but it might bring its own set of problems.
Yes?
Also, she can fix her problem by just not stretching her ear. Like, not putting a stretcher in is an easy thing to do. But sometimes you don't know what the solution is, and it's kind of like "I think maybe you shouldn't do that but I don't know what you would do instead because there isn't much better to do and . . . maybe you'd just better carry on doing that" and it's stupid bringing it up, and also, like I said, I don't know how to say these things.
But you're correct, and if I ever see an obvious hole, I will try really hard to say something, but if it's kind of misty and maybe there isn't a hole at all.
Or maybe there is a hole, but you don't want them to just out of the hole and into the well . . . then yeah.
But yeah. :/
I should.

Star Inkbright said...

Also, yes. My approach is stupid. This is why I like mean people better than nice people. :P

However, sometimes being nice like me (note the 'like me'. I'm not nice in other ways) has its advantages, so . . . yeah.

Star Inkbright said...

It's like how I was friends for people with years even though I didn't really like them.
Because I don't want to say things and upset people, but unless you say something and are a little mean, nothing really gets done.

By being nice, you're not being nice.
It's a really awesome paradox, that. :)

Star Inkbright said...

Plus I guess that sometimes you can reasonably tell people what they're doing wrong until the cows come home, but they won't listen, and it's like you're speaking another language. The message just doesn't get into their heads. And then they just hate you and feel crap and you've fixed nothing.
And I suppose I'm used to those situations, and in those situations, there's just nothing much you can do because whatever you say won't be listened to.

Star Inkbright said...

*so I'm used to thinking that I shouldn't say anything

General Luciana Clover Scáth; Leader Of the New Land Of Stickers; Prophet Of The New Order (AKA the Insane Khaleesi Of the Rainbow People); Grand Mage of Skuttlebuggia/Little Bird said...

You know, tattoos and stretchers and piercings are not bad . It's the stereotypes associated with them that are bad. Those are what are disgusting. If someone wants to stretch their ears, let them! My friend did it and her ear has gone back to how it was before.
There's nothing wrong with expression.

If there's a possibility that you're wrong, you should just be more tentative about your approach to it. If I only have a hunch that something is wrong with someone, I will approach the situation in a way that will minimize pain and suffering for all people involved.
I know it's tough, but it's often worth it. You'll make mistakes in life, sure - everyone does - but that should not deter you from at least trying to help someone.

I understand why you may be uncertain about wanting to do it, but you shouldn't deny someone the chance at saving themselves from a bit of hell because of fear of being wrong. At least, that's how I see it.

Star Inkbright said...

You know, we were on the coach on the way back from France and we watched Meet the Parents. And I realised that my mind expects everyone to gravitate to the one unreasonable person so that they're satisfied because you have to do that if you want to get along. And it took me a while to realise that maybe instead of expecting people to gravitate to them, making you should be making them gravitate to the other people.
And I suppose you can look at what my mind is used to doing and what situations my mind is used to dealing with and how I'm used to dealing with them from that.

Star Inkbright said...

@Mushroom: I KNOW.
There is NOTHING WRONG with stretching your ear, except the fact you might damage it. The thing that is wrong is the fact that she is going to damage the way people look at her if she does it. And that's not her fault, or the fault of ear-stretching. That's the fault of society.
But C kind of thinks "We can't change society, so we're just going to have to adapt to it and accept it."
To which I'm just like THE FINAL EMPIRE.
But I can't exactly prove that society is going to change.
And I agree with C about the ear-stretching. She shouldn't stretch her ear, because she will get so many negative opinions from it, and is it really worth that?
And is she strong enough to deal with all of that?
Probably not.
And she'll probably regret it.
I am pretty damn certain she will.

It's really odd, btw - usually C is on this side of the argument and I'm just like "WE SHOULD NOT BEND TO SOCIETY WE SHOULD CHANGE IT THE FINAL EMPIRE" and she just tells me I'm deluded. :P Weird being over here.

Yes, Mushroom, you're correct.
Thank you.
*sighs*
*thinks about that*
*or puts it in my head to think about when something happens that means I will need to put that into consideration*

General Luciana Clover Scáth; Leader Of the New Land Of Stickers; Prophet Of The New Order (AKA the Insane Khaleesi Of the Rainbow People); Grand Mage of Skuttlebuggia/Little Bird said...

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

No.

If you dislike something, fight against it. Maybe it's not going to change straight away, but never settle for acceptance. Okay, accept that this is the way it will be for now but do not kid yourself into thinking that is the way it will always be. WE ARE A PART OF SOCIETY AND IF WE CHANGE SO WILL IT.
Would you be happy marrying someone that accepted your flaws? Or would you prefer someone who said that your flaws are not flaws at all? Would you really settle for the former of the two if it was possible to have the second? I know I wouldn't.
Society will change, because it always does. It's fluid like that. Premarital intercourse was once frowned upon, now it is seen as a norm. That is societal change.
Gay marriage was once illegal, NOW IT IS NOT. That is societal change.

Just because things are dark now, it doesn't mean we should learn to see in it. It just means we need to rebel against it. It means we cannot let the light die out and we need to fight until it shines over the whole world, because we need it.
Don't kid yourself into thinking that just because life is like it is now it will be this way forever. In the past year alone we've seen how things can change - last year one of my best friends wouldn't have been able to get married to someone she loves, now she can if that's what she wants. If you want change, fight for it.

And regarding the stretching? Freedom of expression. Let her do it. It's always worth the criticism. I almost did it - I got a fake one to see how people would react. I got so much crap, but I couldn't help but laugh, because I felt more confident with it. If she wants to stretch her ear, her friends should be supportive of it, because it's not like it's an irreversible change.
And... A life without regrets sounds like a pretty lame life to me. You have to make mistakes to get anywhere in life, IMO.
