      1. How would your character feel about babysitting? Honestly, Tess loves kids. So she would love babysitting. She used to babysit in high school and part time while in the academy. She wants her own kids some day too.
      2. If your character had the chance to take the place of any character in a book, who would it be? Probably a musical of some sort. Maybe Mamma Mia or the Greatest Showman because she's trash for musicals like that. They make her weep like a baby, but she'd never admit it. Ever. No, no. She's a hardass, she doesn't cry.
      3. What does your character aspire to be? Nothing in particular. But as long as she's doing what she believes is right, she is happy. Even if that means breaking the law a little bit. Or a lot of bit.
      4. What are your character’s goals for the future? As much as she loves the FBI, she'd like to find another job someday. Something that makes her happier than this does since she doesn't like being told what to do. Probably picked the wrong profession from the get-go, but it pays the bills so it's alright.
      5. How does your character handle resolutions? Tessa is actually pretty brilliant, whether it be the academy training or natural abilities, and she can come to resolutions fairly easily.
      6. What is your character afraid of? She would tell you nothing, but she's terrified of spiders. She will squeal like a little bitch if she sees one or walks into a spiderweb. She's also afraid of rejection, despite the fact she holds herself in such high confidence. If Daniel, her current love interest, were to reject her, she'd probably be devastated and vow to live life as a widow or marry Nina as a sister wife without benefits. That's pretty much it, though. Nothing else really scares her.
      7. What is your character reluctant to tell people? If she's ever worried, upset, or troubled of any kind. Tess doesn't like to show she's weak in any way. And while she's actually a pretty easy going person, genuinely happy and content most of the time, she will fake being okay with something even if she's not. Though she doesn't break easy.
      8. What is your character’s major flaws? Probably the same as above, her lack of ability to let people know when she's anything but happy. Not only does she not want to burden them, she doesn't want to be perceived as weak.
      9. How does your character handle confrontation? Probably a little too well. Tess is a bad ass through and through.
      10. What is something your character can’t stand? As she is genuinely an unbothered person, not much really pisses her off. Except assholes and people who are rude to her friends and those she cares about. She's pretty protective.
      11. Who is someone your character can’t stand? Fuller. And any idiot who is on his side.
      12. Does your character have any allergies? Are they life threatening? She's actually allergic to shellfish. Has a pretty bad reaction to it as well, life-threatening. She carries and epi-pen around and has one in her apartment, her own car, and Nina's car, plus the office.
      13. Is your character religious? What religion? How strictly do they follow it? Do the horsemen count as a religion?
      14. If your character could redo a moment, what would that be? Probably nothing. Maybe dating her ex boyfriend who was an asshole, but it taught her what she wanted in a relationship, so she doesn't want to lose that knowledge. So pretty much nothing.
      15. How does your character show their significant other affection? Their friends? LOL she's pretty fucking open about it. She's already all over Daniel and they aren't together. She's just a very handsy person. Not really with her friends, but wouldn't be afraid to give them a hug or a kiss, especially Nina, and especially if she's drunk or emotional.

soft parted lips that speak words without sound,
lilac smoke swirled around the gold that crowns her head.
a soft touch between her brows,
the shiver of dark eyelashes that frame blue.
hands bumping, fingers twirled together.
the laughter that fills her eyes,
the calm that settles on her cheeks.
sleepy murmurs, pulling you closer,
birdsong lulled to dreams.
the moments between seconds,
are the ones that mean the most.

an poem for sag points

Thu Jul 11, 2019 11:45 am

hey what's up and it's Cas with an all new poem collection

poem 1: the reason for long distance

in a room full of blood, you are the bandage -
trying to hold together what is already in pieces.

in my minds eye, you are my horatio,
adoring, forever, even in my madness.

in suffering, you are a guiding light,
bringing me warmth, and a home for all nights.

in you, in me, in both - we are not two, but one,
candlelight, flickering and dancing against the wind.

in your arms i find peace
in my arms you are safe -

together we could be unstoppable,
which is why we are apart.

        ᴍʏ ᴅᴇᴀʀᴇsᴛ,
        I lived and endured and suffered without another to keep me sane,
        Until you came, turning on the light in the midst of the darkest hour.
        A lonely soul chained up in a house without any comforting flame;
        With one glance, one kiss, one touch, you set it all into a fiery blaze.

        In your embrace, I found a safe haven that was denied to me,
        This cracked rooftop above a nobody who yearned for shelter.
        A thoughtful gaze which speaks millions carries a silent plea;
        To it, I will forever say: "Without you, I alone could never be".

        Like a flower, reaching out to the sun, you are pulled into my heart.

  • 1. What is your favorite color?
    cerulean. it was my favorite crayon and it's just stuck
    2. What was your favorite vacation?
    definitely the cross country roadtrip I took with three friends. three whole days of the seven were driving with all of us in one car but it was worth it. we saw so many things. the garden of the gods, a mountain, the san diego zoo, kayaked on the ocean, went seashell hunting, went to a dog beach, and saw crater lake. we almost died dirivng in the mountains but yknow whatever. and the cinnamon roll the size of my head at some hole in the wall diner more than made up for the night I was sick in a shitty hotel
    3. What is your favorite music?
    I've never been sure how to classify my music in general, but Lorde and Lana del Ray are favorite artists
    4. What is your favorite scent?
    Vanilla
    5. Do you have a favorite dessert?
    Ice cream, no question
    6. What is your favorite holiday?
    Holidays are too much family, I'm not really a fan of any of them
    7. What’s your favorite line from a fictional character?
    "I feel like my life is so scattered right now. Like it's all the small pieces of paper and someone's turned on the fan. But, talking to you makes me feel like the fan's been turned off for a little bit. Like things could actually make sense. You completely unscatter me, and I appreciate that so much"
    or
    "I am constantly torn between killing myself and killing everyone around me."
    - Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green
    8. What’s your favorite writing spot?
    My couch, home alone, with the OA on the TV on the dog on the other end of the couch
    9. What’s your favorite reading spot?
    Nothing more comfy than a papasan chair
    10. What’s your favorite genre to write?
    I literally have no idea how to put things in genres
    11. What’s your least favorite genre to write?
    Again, genres unclear
    12. What is your favorite memory?
    Dad used to have two eggs and a piece of toast waiting ever day that I'd wake up for school, and then we'd watch spogebob together. I swear he was more excited to watch spongebob than I was. more of a collection of memories than just one, but its the only thing I have from before everything went to shit
    13. What is your favorite animal?
    this is literally the hardest question because the answer should be snakes but also there are procupines that collect bones in africa so
    14. What is your least favorite sound?
    there's so many, I'm so noise sensitive. people chewing, sniffing, coughing, dogs licking, fingernails on metal... really any repeated noise
    15. Who is your favorite author?
    Stephen King

cas does a second poem for sag points

Fri Jul 12, 2019 7:26 pm

hey what's up and it's Cas with a second poem about someone who means a lot to me

poem 2: the ones we lost, but part of us still holds dear.

how far have we come, my dear?
once liquid, now solid, real people, real lives,
real problems.

often i wonder how it could have been, how it should have been,
how it would have been, had we remained the heads to our tails
had we seen eye to eye, had we never grew up

maybe one day, you'll look back as I do and smile,
maybe you already do, but I'd never know, we're
on two different sides of the glass now.

do remember that time when, when we ran giggling,
pointing and laughing, flipping off the world because it was we who ruled it?
Me too.

You are my memory - you are still my life.
Part of me, not locked, but allowed to roam, freely, carressing thoughts of childhood,
giving me a chance to look back, a chance to appreciate going forward.

to my number one bitch. ily fucker

and from the depths of the brimstone, we will emerge,
crown clenched tightly in joined hands,
blood stained skin cast in ill moonlight.
a battle won, a notch on the hilt.
to each our own fair share of tears spilt,
quiet understanding and simple pleas.
words that need not be spoken.
the shared secrets,
the shared pain,
the shared laughs and smiles.
a bond like no other, to withstand the currents of time.

with love, your soulmate in an alternate universe,

daddy ❤

        ɪᴄʜɪʀᴏᴜ,
        I lack the words to describe how much I treasure you,
        A partner in crime the heavens have blessed me with.
        My brother; a soulmate in a distant universe of hope.
        Yet, you are so much more than that to this lonely soul.
        When the skies are raining with our tears left ignored;
        And as those who we trust leave wounds on our bodies;
        You are a mountain that never wavers, a silent guardian.
        Loud words are unneeded as we share the same mind -
        Two lone souls merged together in a friendship that lasts;
        For our bond is eternal, meant to withstand the world's end.
        And when the distance between us melts into nothingness,
        We will find safe harbour and the world will bow down to us.

        Ahziss ari jer, trevan, afa dov'kono gada. Go die in a ditch.

member interview !!

        • What is your favorite color?
          dark red!! the color of cherries is Perfect. i love a vampy blackened red, but i also like purple and dark green a lot. black is also a near and dear color to my heart

          What was your favorite vacation?
          probably when i first saw harry potter world in florida!! there was something emotionally magical, if not actually, about walking into diagon alley for the first time. not that it isn't magical now!! but it will probably never feel that pure and completely wondrous again

          What is your favorite music?
          that's hard, bc i firmly believe there's good music in every genre if you take the time to look for it. pop punk/punk rock will probably always have a place in my heart, but i also really genuinely enjoy pop music, esp if it's like... alternative pop? music with pop sound that isn't on the radio, though tbh i have no idea what's playing on the radio rn (which, imo, is key to enjoying pop music over time). i'm also lowkey getting into hip-hop, bc emorap is one of my new guilty pleasures

          What is your favorite scent?
          the just-rained scent and wood smoke are two faves for sure!! and anything floral, particularly lilac and rose. i also really enjoy the way cedar smells

          Do you have a favorite dessert?
          hmm i'm not sure!! i like lemon poppy seed scones a lot, and chocolate is one of my favorite flavors in desserts. one time i went to a fancy restaurant and ordered a creme brulee and that was probably the best thing i've ever put into my mouth

          What is your favorite holiday?
          halloween!! we love spooks and witchery in this house

          What’s your favorite line from a fictional character?
          um idk i don't really keep track

          What’s your favorite writing spot?
          i don't really think i have one!! coffee shops are nice though and usually have p good ambiance. i actually once went through a phase where i used to write at perkins at like two in the morning almost every night

          What’s your favorite reading spot?
          anywhere in the woods if it's warm, and nearby a fireplace if it isn't

          What’s your favorite genre to write?
          anything that has elements of fantasy, whether that be magic or monsters or anything else mystical

          What’s your least favorite genre to write?
          historical fiction. there's too much research needed and pressure to be historically accurate for me to feel comfy writing it

          What is your favorite memory?
          mmm that's tricky!! well, i have a very fond memory of marathoning the harry potter movies with my friends last summer. it was all just... such a good time??? i don't think i'll ever laugh that much or that hard again, or be that funny. i peaked on a comedic level lmao

          What is your favorite animal?
          i have a deep love for all cats and big cats. dragons too, if they count. i also really like ibexes, gazelles, all antler'd creatures, crows, harpy eagles, snakes (particularly mexican black king snakes), bats, and all varieties of fox

          What is your least favorite sound?
          have you ever heard two metal things scrape against each other? i hate that

          Who is your favorite author?
          i can't say i've found a favorite but tbh that's probably because i don't read enough actual books
