a lot of love,
a lot of blood




"On the whole I am inclined to think that a witch should not kiss. Perhaps it is the not being kissed that makes her a witch; perhaps the source of her power is the breath of loneliness around her." - Emma Donoghue

S., 24, Italian. Kate is my internet handle and you can call me that. People scare me so I'll probably never talk to you even if I think you're cool, and if I do it'll be very awkward. English is my second language; I apologize for any mistakes.

I love a lot of things, including fairy tales, mythology, ladies who make music, ladies in general, history, languages. I watch a lot of movies and tv, I ship all the things, and I love Pokémon a lot.
 



Yunyu - Crapmas

It’s my most sorrowful time of the year
a were-Santa he got me
he bit me that bastard
and now once a year
I’m transformed into this ponce with the bells…

a ghostly imprint upon your mind I bore — songs for vengeful ghosts and restless soulsDOWNLOAD
lenore’s song - yunyu; gently gently I came rapping / tapping at your chamber door / am I just imagination / is there still some salvation? / see you backing backing slowly / the smile you wear in life just fading / wonder why you clutch your left / is that heart of yours still beating / this is just a visit my friend / wonder why I fear no more / do I exist, do I not / am I a haunting of your mind? / where where where were you when I cried / where where where were you when I died / did you fight? did you fight?
let the records show - emilie autumn; so let the records show / that you murdered me / in your coldest blood / with your own two hands / don’t think no one understands / it happens every day
the ghost who walks - karen elson; the ghost who walks, she’s on the prowl / for the man she loved, he laid her down / in the tall grass he kissed her cheek / but with a knife in his hand, he plunged it in deep
seven devils - florence + the machine; holy water cannot help you now / see I’ve come to burn your kingdom down / and no river and no lakes can put the fire out / I’m gonna raise the stakes, I’m gonna smoke you out / seven devils all around you, seven devils in your house / see, I was dead when I woke up this morning, I’ll be dead before the day is done
wuthering heights - kate bush; heathcliff, it’s me, cathy, I’ve come home / I’m so cold, let me in your window / oh, let me have it, let me grab your soul away / you know it’s me, cathy
graveyard - lucy schwartz; oh, we’re nothing but walking spirits / only shadows, we’re only shadows / screaming out but no one will hear us

favorite singers → Yunyu

where where where were you when I cried
where where where were you when I died
did you fight? did you fight
where where where were you when I screamed my last
where where where were you, I found you nesting at my chamber’s door
along with them
along with them

never nevermore, I’m your lost Lenore
I’m who you called a whore when they came for me
never nevermore, I’m your lost Lenore
a ghostly imprint upon your mind I bore

YUNYU - Twisted Tales - Episode 2 - Bluebeard

Bluebeard is the second single from Twisted Tales. 

Yunyu’s version of this tale is a dark and chilling rendition of the exploits of real life Bluebeards who use religion to justify their sexual abuse of women and children. Offering a musical lifeline to her characters, Yunyu used SOS Morse code as a base for the track. Bluebeard is post-modern rock meeting with Kate Bush-esque vocals, and reaches a violent crescendo of electrifying guitar. Short, sharp verses repeat in rhythmic sequence while the band keeps up with the multiple changes in time signatures.

I love the way the video makes use of the drawing-on-sand imagery.

Angel Arias - Yunyu

Drink me, I say, follow the dark
Come closer still, singe your heart here
We’ll dance with shards, illusions cut
Our wild thought bring Angel Arias

In somnis veritas, sic itur ad astra
(In dreams there is truth, seek it in the stars)

Take me to heights, on to the brink
Don’t have to stop, don’t turn back now
Forget your skin, forget your kin
All is forgone, Angel Arias

In somnis veritas, sic itur ad astra
(In dreams there is truth, seek it in the stars)

Drink me again, keep up my love
Follow my dance, Angel Arias
Seek no God here
We are the greys
We are the grace
Angel Arias

Lacus, lacus, lacus somniorum
(Lake, lake, lake of dreams)

"Am I too subliminal,
so that you know I exist only in the back of your mind?
Am I too transient for you,
so that you know I exist only to disappear in a few?
Am I a thought postdated,
so that you know I exist only in dark depths of your mind?
Am I too foregone for you
so that you know I exist, but only in the caves of lost hearts?
Am I too ghostly for you,
so that you know I exist, but only in the back of your eyes?"

— Yunyu; Too subliminal

Yunyu - Lenore’s Song live

I love her so much ♥



Fireflies - Yunyu

You fold little hearts for the dead, make them beat and pump just for you
Watch you hold them dear, feel the warmth, but you still don’t feel love

Sweep away your clouds, take your hands, ride away in moons that glow green
That’s your colour of fireflies, lights what you are made of

Don’t you cry I see you
I’ll breathe the fireflies
make them dance just for you
so I can catch your smile

Thousand paper cranes grant a wish, so I fold them well for you too
If they don’t work well that’s alright, I’ll fly with you in dreams

Show you what is warmth in my land, so you know you’re not winter’s child
Never nevermore the echoes, you will not walk alone

Wanna get out - Yunyu

"What kind of cross have I died on?
Coz I’ve lived and died in all kinds of worlds just before
Now I’m travelling round in circles in the form of you
Coz I’ve lived and died in all kinds of worlds just before
Now I wanna get out
Right now I wanna get out
I wanna get out of you.”
