"Did it hurt?"

"Did what hurt?"

"When you fell from heaven."

"…It was the single most painful experience of my life. Tossed away like chaff, my wings… oh my beautiful wings! Burned away… gone in an instant! Hurtling toward this rock, we made mountains where we struck, my siblings and I.
Never to fly again, never to rise and soar, but left to walk and climb this rock forever. Every moment here is an agonizing reminder of what I've lost. Yes, it hurt, more than you can possibly imagine."

"Val- how do you do it? What is your secret?"
Me: *looks left, looks right*
Me: *motions to come closer*
Me: *leans over and whispers in ear*
"But- you just… made whispering noises?”
Me: *smiles, winks and gives finger guns*

I don't know who you are. Or whether you're a man or a woman. I may never see you or cry with you or get drunk with you. But I love you. I hope that you escape this place. I hope that the world turns and that things get better, and that one day people have roses again. I wish I could kiss you.

Jungle Queen: "I reflect what's INSIDE, Julie. I am the IMAGE of STRENGTH and INDEPENDENCE you felt before you were violated. But as I absorb more trauma, misery and bitterness, I CHANGE. I FEAR what I am becoming, Julie."

"But now that you have seen all this… the world can never be… the same…size again."

Julie: "Reflecting? So she's my *subconscious*? Why is Maxx dreaming her?" Li'l Julie: "You think too much. Let's play." J: "So she's my ID and you're my Superego? So what's Maxx? My Animus?" LJ: "It's not that simple, this ain't psych 101. You need a *Spirit Animal* to guide you through it all."

J: "Spirit Animal, huh? Like a chipmunk? How do I find one?" LJ: "You already have. Just keep coming back here to play with me…and help me… grow up."

J: "I don't suppose I'll remember any of this when I wake up?" LJ: "Oh, no. This stuff id buried so deeply, it'll take you *years* to get through."

Please use healthy coping mechanisms liberally today. :cyber_heart_sparkle_purple:


While the road to hell is paved with good intentions, it sure seems like there's a lot more potholes now.

LJ: "Maybe. They're your symbols." J: "But… how did…?" LJ: "You know about the leopard?" J: "Yes, that was Maxx's dream! And how…" LJ: "Β¬is it you know what Maxx is dreaming?" J: "I… know everything! The Outback, those stupid iszes…" LJ: "Because you're not a part of his dreams… he's a part of yours. Just as the Jungle Queen is also a part of you.."

Li'l Julie: "Hi, Julie. Took you a while to find your way down here." Julie: "And you are…?" LJ: "Li'l Julie.. I'm your deepest manifestation of consciousness.. the way you saw yourself when you first developed self-awareness." J: "Uh huh. And Maxx is dead in this hallucination?" LJ: "He can't exist here. You are the only psychic entity here... and these, of course." J: "Awww, baby Leopards! I suppose this is where I learn that for every creature that dies another is born? Laying it on a bit thick, aren't we?"

I used to have a bag of marbles; mostly used as decorations for vases or other glassware – but over the years, between all the moves, they've disappeared. I have literally lost my marbles.

Stagnaticus, god of waiting and long lines. He draws his power from the kinetic momentum of people impatiently waiting. His temples are your local DMV, but His Mecca is comprised of the lines at Disneyworld.

It is said that to seek His good graces, one must stand in the middle of an infinitely long line.

if you're white and you use the internet, you have a duty to ensure that the spaces you are in are not a safe space for white supremacists. no, "oh but I like this person and they've never done anything in MY group" -- listen to us. listen to what we have to say. report people to the mods or if it's an ongoing problem, *leave the fucking group and let people know why you're leaving*.

make mods explain their decisions. make it uncomfortable. make it weird.

it's the LEAST you can do.

So, throwing down is the vernacular for tossing the feather filled pillow in a pillow-fight, right?.

When I designed quizzes or crossword puzzles, I tried to make one of the answers "violence" - so for at least once, violence *is* the answer.

Who called it dystopian fiction when they could have called it ?

It is a sad and frustrating experience to watch someone you care for slide down into conspiracy theories and begin to suspend belief in science and facts.
