mortem-et-necromantia:

Catacombe dei Cappuccini.

We are the last nights of summer
and a sunset exactly the color
of knowing what it feels like to be unwanted
and knowing why
you’re alone,
but not wanting to fix it
as much as wanting to kiss it
all goodbye. As much as wanting to die,
wanting to cry in the bathtub
but not crying. As much as the textbooks cost the last of your savings
and the leftovers aren’t worth saving
but we save them anyway.
We all know what it feels like to stay
awake
later than we should. Even though there’s school in the morning.
Even though there’s work, and it looks like rain.
Even though our carpet is stained
with red wine. We are waiting in line
to go patiently nowhere. We are nowhere.
And sometimes we feel so alone
that we forget how our own
voices sound. But it is never too early to drown them out.
And we wish we could have waited,
but when the sun comes up there is a train to catch.
And we are following the rest of them, the best of them.
When this is all over it will feel like the aftertaste of a sunset
and we know it.

FAVE WATER: VAPOREON
When you give a Vaporeon a fish, then you should make one magical wish!
Poor dead Basculin. Oh well, I don’t really like Basculin anyhow. Giving my cute little Vaporeon a little fishie to nibble on? That is something I can do. I love water types, and Vaporeon is a wonderful mix of water, elegance, and cute. What a sweet mermaid-like Eeveelution!
Congrats to tich for being the first to guess correctly! Just message me what Pokemon you would like, and I shall doodle it for you. uwu

The nicest people I’ve ever met were covered in tattoos and piercings and the most judgemental people I’ve ever met are the ones that go to church every Sunday.

it’s funny how when a white person decides to learn a foreign language and move to another country, he’s lauded for his sense of adventure, multiculturalism, appreciation of diversity and god knows what else

but when a person of colour does the same thing it’s all “fucking immigrants stop stealing our jobs go back to ur own country!!!!”

Las Vegas Chorus Girl, Kim Smith and her roommate after leaving a casino, 1954 (via)

In San Francisco last year, a man stabbed a woman in the face and arm after she didn’t respond positively to his sexually harassing her on the street.

In Bradenton, Fla., a man shot a high school senior to death after she and her friends refused to perform oral sex at his request.

In Chicago, a scared 15-year-old was hit by a car and died after she tried escaping from harassers on a bus.

Again, in Chicago, a man grabbed a 19-year-old walking on a public thoroughfare, pulled her onto a gangway and assaulted her.

In Savannah, Georgia, a woman was walking alone at night and three men approached her. She ignored them, but they pushed her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.

In Manhattan, a 29-year-old pregnant woman was killed when men catcalling from a van drove onto the sidewalk and hit her and her friend.

Last week, a runner in California — a woman — was stopped and asked, by a strange man in a car, if she wanted a ride. When she declined he ran her over twice.

FUCK YOU if you think that street harassment is a “compliment” or “no big deal” or that it’s “irrational” of us to be afraid because “what’s actually gonna happen.” Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you some more.
Lisa’s role on The Simpsons is a natural fit for episodes where the writers want to ground the show in emotional reality. For some, that makes her something of a killjoy, a too-rational counterpoint to Springfield’s broader comic insanity. And in 25 years, she, like every other member of the family, has certainly seen those qualities exaggerated in unflattering ways. But there’s a reason why Lisa is at the center of some of the show’s most affecting episodes (especially with Yeardley Smith as her voice)—of all the myriad residents of Springfield, Lisa is the most alone.
 
Sure, her family loves her—in their way—but her intelligence sets her apart, even as the little girl in her wants nothing more than to be one of the crowd. Lisa appeals to every viewer who looks at the craziness and boorishness of a loud, dumb world and longs to both transcend it and be embraced by it. And since Springfield is our world, only exponentially crazier and more boorish, Lisa’s isolation is even more profound
