Okay, so I've be working on this AU- Ivy lane, for a while now. Before I got tumblr. Currently I have three chapters finished and I'm working on a fourth chapter! I think I might post some art of it first before I post the chapters. Idk lmao
But even when I do post, I hope you like it sweets ♡
The hatred that boiled up inside of them began to burn, till they thought all their anger was going to explode right out of them.
When I met you, flowers started growing in the darkest parts of my mind.
I'll protect you, for the rest of my life.
Had to share this spot-on assessment.
Lumen looked over his shoulder and saw Hornet and Hollow walking down the street towards him and the smaller bug. The Spider had a look in her eyes that would kill if they could and her walk was nearing a run.
“Leave him alone, Zote.” Hornet said as she stopped next to Lumen. “We don’t need you bothering newcomers.”
The smaller bug audibly swallowed nervously and turned to walk away.
“Yes, yes, of course, I do apologize.”
As Zote hurried down the street as fast as his short little legs allowed, he threw a venomous glare over his shoulder at the three, at Hollow who looked away, unable to make eye contact.
“Speaking of abominations.” Zote spat out, loud enough for the three bugs to hear, as he rounded a corner and disappeared.
Hornet let out an “ugh”, crossing her arms under her cloak. “I swear, if it weren’t for Ghost and Ernest, I’d just kill him.” She looked over at Lumen next to her. “You could have kicked him.”
“Wha-,” The Moth was taken aback by the suggestion, shaking his head and holding up his hands in a “hold up there” gesture. “No! I’m not just going to attack someone when I haven’t been here for even an hour!”
That actually got a laugh from Hornet, even if it was a small one. “I was joking.”
I retconned Kori's hair since ut was hard to shade, idk if i like how this came out but. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯,
Anyways, kor is just having his time at the library, apparantly*totally secret not in any way evil organization* doesnt really stock fantasy books. Im sure "How to use your opponents strength against them Vol.230" doesnt really hit like "Lord of The Rings"

[Thought of the morning: DB writers really had the PRIME opportunity to not fall into the housewife trope with Gine and they absolutely don't take it (same with Videl; girl got done so dirty). And to top it off, they give her the damsel in distress trope, too. I'm not even saying nix the idea entirely but she literally could have SO EASILY been a nice mix of housewife and badass like Izumi Curtis from FMA (as could ChiChi if they let her you know keep fighting to some degree outside of a small nod to it in the Buu saga) and they just go witb the same tired trope they shove basically every female character into.
You all know how I feel about the pre Z retcons they've made anyway with trying to soften the Saiyans to make their characters easier for us to sympathize with along with all my other theories on why they do it (unnecessary at the end of the day but what can you do), but man it would have been easy to make her story less pathetic. I don't mind Gine but she's boring so I can't say I like her. She's just another character that exists because well duh Goku and Raditz need a mom (another thing that was an unnecessary change from the original Bardock movie narrative, but we all know DB can't have such scandalous suggestions like one night stands that STAY one night stands as they should, but pe.do and gross shit with Roshi is hilarious kfjebdbf).
Just ugh. If the writing in DB could actually surpass decent, especially newer content, for more than a few minutes, I'd be happier. ESPECIALLY where any female character is involved. ]
THINGS WITH CLAWS
The Tattered Days
Ceaseless rain drips blood from damaged hearts
To clean the city streets
While white clothed collars beat the racist drums
As the fires heat
Crimson moon without stars
Hang the polluted air
Fancy people rant and rave
But will not linger there
They drop us on hot pavement
Littered by syringes
While parties behind elegant doors
Laugh us off the hinges
Smell the smoke of anger
What was meant to always come
Feed us the lies of cattle
And laugh at how we’re dumb
Hell produces heroes
Heroes with sharpened blades
A hate filled heart is beating
As our National Anthem fades
Tattered days are dying
Empty promises forever made
Winds of change must come
Or in blood must we wade
Tattered days of misery
Dying a homeless dread
We must rise up from persecution
And honor the defeated dead
Four of Cups. Art by Wendy Yu, from The Southeast Asian Myths & Stories Tarot.
Ashoka the Great, a king of the South India, ruled over a territory which stretched from Afghanistan in the west to Bangladesh in the East. He ruled over the entire Indian subcontinent and his capital was Pataliputra. A great war occurred against the state of Kalinga which resulted in more than 100,000 deaths and sending countless more into exile or slavery.
After the Kalinga War, he had a vision of Gautama Buddha in a dream and converted to Buddhism. Many Dharma Pillars were erected and Buddhist monks were sent to Sri Lanka and other parts of Asia to build monuments in his name.
Laos was one of the countries which received the building of a monument. Five arhat monks travelled from Pataliputra with a holy relic of Lord Buddha and was received by the Local King.
The Local King was a man of the local spiritual shamanistic religions and did not understand about compassion and mercy. He felt that might was right. However. as he knew about the strength of Ashoka, he allowed the monks to build the Stupa, named as Pha That Luang.
The vision of Ashoka was not completed till many centuries later, when King Setthathirat of Laos, relocated his main city to Vientiane. He was riding past the ruins of Pha That Luang and a bright beam of light shot from the heavens as a form of a rainbow illuminating the ancient Stupa.
Taking it as an auspicious sign, the King rebuilt the temple in glory and receiving the blessings of the Buddha, the kingdom prospered.
The four of cups shows the vision of the king Ashoka as he sent his monks to Vientiane. However, as the current king of that time was unable to fully see the vision of the king Ashoka, the monument was not fully complete.
Four of cups is a card of opportunities and of new chances. Not everyone will decide that an opportunity is right even it if was offered to you. Realising which opportunity is right and seizing on it; may result in success beyond imagination.

Working in my mouse room and some guy comes in holding a strip of Velcro the way a small child holds a dying bird they want you to save, and he confesses to me that he broke my door handle off, sheared the screws in half, and he was very sorry. Where is the door handle? Why was he holding Velcro? How did he manage to break the inner handle, I've seen plenty of outer ones taken off by machinery/equipment but he shouldn't have been able to reach the inner one. It fell apart worse when I touched it. I texted my supervisor to report the issue and he said if I get stuck to text him and I told him if I get stuck I'm going to text him and then immediately go feral and start eating mouse chow to survive until rescue. He said ok.
