naps are the worst because you take them out of need for sleep, so you lose four hours and when it comes time (11 pm) to sleep for the night, every fiber of your being protests that it’s too early, that you should have hours of activity left, but, because of previous sleep deprivation and because naps have never, in human history, actually helped anyone feel good, just marginally better, your eyes are heavy and the dazedness that caused you to take the nap in the first place are still there; also you don’t have the energy, now, to do anything, so you refresh tumblr tiredly and yawn and insist still that if you keep your eyes open for five more minutes you’ll be able to do great things, you might even read a book or write something but you know in your heart that you’re not going to enjoy anything until you’ve had a full night’s sleep, because naps are the worst.

Was it for this I uttered prayers,
And sobbed and cursed and kicked the stairs,
That now, domestic as a plate,
I should retire at half-past eight?

Edna St. Vincent-Millay, “Grown-Up”

The man I used to be would go to sleep at three
Or four a.m. or seven or nine
….
And I’ll never find that fatalistic,
Free-and-easy egotistic optimist who used to be me
You can never find the man you used to be.

Oscar Hammerstein II

The joke here is that this means “I am he who is clad heart-deep in black” and a) it’s written in sparkly pink gel pen with middle school girl handwriting and b) this actually is what I wrote around my school notes in middle school.

I think, that in the terrible generic fantasy novel that is always playing in the back of my head, I’m the bitchy pretty girl from the hero/ine’s home town, who causes the heroine to go all ‘not like other girls’/the hero to fall in hopeless (because of aforementioned bitchiness) love

i keep seeing posts about scars, and I completely understand why people wouldn’t like theirs but i love mine because 1. when i was younger i read a lot of fantasy wherein people had Badass Scars and 2. all of mine tell the story of some dumb shit i did (and 3. they’re not very visible). Like this: 

looks Badass, right? like I was fighting a duel and the other person’s rapier slipped down my arm and scarred me but I still won. 

nope! it’s from when I was trying to cut a blackberry bush with tiny folding camp scissors, which essentially bounced off the bush and scored my wrist; i didn’t tell anyone, because I didn’t want to get in trouble, so I sat through lunch with increasingly bloody napkins under the table.

oh wow, Just So Many 

1. a random medieval princess, with more tasteful jewelry

2. A Roman empress, in purple and gold 

3. Look, I enjoy the 18th century, panniers and all;

4. I would look good in Regency fashions. 

Basically, everything up to about 1830, at which point we get Victorian and Bad, and then we get into flappers, and drop waists would look terrible on me; I might be persuaded into 1950s evening wear.

Also, uh, i do not have dreams like this anymore: 

I dreamt about a story-telling contest. I told a story about a king whose three daughters died on three consecutive nights. They were sent to a place where a man and woman lived. The woman had a huge lower jaw, and the trick was not to mention it. The first two did, of course, and were thrown into Hell; the third didn’t. This story was applauded.
There was also a man with me, who was my brother (not my real brother, though). For vague reasons he was to fight the stag king for his crown. This was not a metaphorical stag king; he was actually a stag. This was a yearly event, and the way it was done was to stab the king when he was unaware. There was a second challenger, who stabbed the king later; but then my brother held up his knife (flint, I think) to show that he had been first. So he became King, and a stag. A bi-pedal, 11 foot tall stag [emphasis 2017-me’s]. There was a queen doe, who was immortal, and believed that her husband was reborn every year, but that it was the same soul.
At this point, however, she began to figure it out. She playfully asked him who he would be if he went to the magical Water-That-Changes, i.e. tells who you actually are. Unable to lie to her, he answered, “I am Max.” She then realized that throughout the years, however thousand men had died for her, and decided to use her Gift to kill herself, as Max looked on in horror. The three black-cloaked guardians of the place cornered him, accusing him of murder. He protested that she had wanted him to tell her. “She asked you to lie!” thundered one.
There was some sort of a curse that upon hearing the call of the heron he would turn normal again; at that point the heron called, even though there had never been herons there before. So he returned to a room with me. There was to be an assembly the next day to decide something, and it was customary to bring gifts. Also to tell a story. The story was decided by the birds; and they chose “shifty Abby.” Max made a comment that I took to imply that I wasn’t going to go (which was dishonorable) and I got very angry.
So I decided to take a gift to the great Tree – a gift of a stone weapon. The Tree told me that it was very happy, but no one else was. I was moved into another world and robbed of my name, being called instead Mattock, or something like it. I was also granted immortality and the gift of being a great story-teller. Well, the immortality might have been a curse, actually. I floated through history and met important people and told stories about them, then ended up in the streets in a near-modern city, revising news-stories. Finally one of the three robed Guardians who had confronted Max found me…and I woke up.
