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.

She flung down her dress among the others, took off her underthings and held them up and with a joyful laugh let the wind snatch them out of her hand, and then she was just flesh and fur and flying hair, unworried by the cold; uncluttered by the trappings of land-clothing. - from The Brides of Rollrock Island, by Margo Lanagan

                               The shankill butchers on the rise
They're waiting till the dead of night
They're picking at their fingers with their knives
And wiping off their cleavers on their thighs

You say this is a game so take your place
Then you set the mask upon your face
My silhouette in the air you trace
And the dagger performs with a start

If you live inside the old graveyard,
Your skin and bones get kinda hard.
You blame it on all of the ones who’ve left you.

unexpectedcloudburst:

First rays of light are coming through
Been seven months since I saw that much blue
Water rushing in the banks
Freed from the ice, it has the sun, the sun to thank
It has the sun, the sun to thank

Matches inside your golden hair
Catch all the light, I fight to death, I swear
As all the other mothers would remember
Stalked by winter solace in a small, warm hand
We’ve got the sun, the sun to thank
We’ve got the sun, the sun to thank

still i’m holding out my hand
standing by my haunted man
yes, your ghosts have got me too
but it’s me and you
i can’t run
