“Although we read with our minds, the seat of artistic delight is between the shoulder blades. That little shiver behind is quite certainly the highest form of emotion that humanity has attained when evolving pure art and pure science. Let us worship the spine and its tingle.”—Vladimir Nabokov (via dialogues)
28. What is your favorite type of pie? (Or, is pie an acceptable replacement for cake?) Blueberry pie~ It has a tangy bitey taste. I like most fruits, but, in pie, a gentle fruit becomes too sweet and dull….
This is surely my last post before people arrive, so… see you all soon! Keep creating beautiful things, and, if you can’t, keep being strong, and, if you can’t, it’s okay, just cry or whatever you need to do and remember that somebody cares….
I will miss you… best of wishes in everything you do….
“I want there to be a place in the world where people can engage in one another’s differences in a way that is redemptive, full of hope and possibility. Not this “In order to love you, I must make you something else”. That’s what domination is all about, that in order to be close to you, I must possess you, remake and recast you.”—
There’s a societal component to this, of course, where not having the spare energy to talk isn’t considered by the broader society to be a legitimate state of being, so of course there’s not a socially acceptable way to say it. Instead you’re supposed to feign willingness, at least until the other person leaves. Hating small talk is considered semi-legitimate, but only if you look at it as a character flaw that you’re trying to fix. I don’t hate small talk that way. It takes energy that normally, when I’m not already exhausted and scraping every bit of energy I can for schoolwork, I can recover soon enough that it’s fine. In this circumstance, I could come off as rude and possibly out myself as neurologically non-convergent (depending on how well I’m able to express myself then), let my energy get drained, or deflect until they gave up for a bit and physically remove myself around the corner (the path I eventually took).
Oh. Yes yes yes this.
Definitely worth to click through to the original post.
I hide in caves and fairy-houses and thickets on a daily basis, simply because I don’t like the sun. My paler skin is the only thing I really like about myself (and my eyes of chocolate brown). It’s so sensitive, though; the slightest sun, even with the proper precautions, will burn my skin and I turn red and ruddy.
The moon is so much kinder to me. Going out at night, washed in the moon’s gentle glow, makes me feel like some pallid princess, drifting in and out of reality on wings of stardust.
The sun likes me, it puts shadows and colours in my skin and I seem to be one of the few Japanese girls who likes it. There are so many beautiful pale flickering creatures in this world and I love them, but I for me like my sunset colours, my tan skin and black hair and eyes that are almost all black like a swan. When I’m next to other girls who live more north and don’t get their skin coloured by the desert sun here, I like the way it looks like just where I’m standing, the light is just a little closer to fading.
But I don’t like the heat. I like the way it looks on me, but, I don’t like it, it makes me feel weak. There are no swans here, where I live because the heat is too much for them, and I wish I could go north with them. I will always prefer the night and shadows, the little dots of starlight in my eyes, the cool night air under my wings.

27. What is your favorite types of cake? I prefer pie (・ε・ ) I think, I used to like cake more. Suddenly, I become a person who can’t eat that thicky sweet stuff. But, I like to look at pretty designed rainbow cakes ^^ Or, cake that has… fish shaped crackers, fish shaped sediment, fish shaped fish… yes. Haha~
Oh, I need to tell you all… this evening, and, for some days, a particular amazing and wonderful person is coming to visit so… soon, for a few days, I wil be quiet on Tumblr (and everywhere else). I will still finish the non-human challenge and my queue will still post, but, I won’t be replying directly to everyone’s lovely comments and posts I think, but I will tryyyy and catch up when I return to the normal life! (might take many days because of how long my dash becomes… hehe (・ε・ ;)
The recent few days, I had some really triggery times in the evening… I was fine in the morning but then, I would just get badly triggered before bed and have a bad night. Tonight is the first night in a few days that I’m going to bed not feeling triggered at all and I’m really happy ♥ ヽ(*ﾟ▽ﾟ*)ﾉ I feel nice and calm and sleepy is nothing is wrong at all.
It’s really nice feeling….
I hope you all have a good and peaceful and pleasant night (or morning) too….
