I saw a post talking about someone's strange experience in finding a working, fully stocked, and well kept vending machine in some unlit, nearly forgotten, underground maitainance tunnel once and someone mentioned that if they had gotten a drink from in then they would've been trapped in the otherworld in jest; that humorous conversation sparked a want to write a story. The first thing I need to do is find some urban places that are liminal:
24- hour establishments found on the side of a lone road with nothing else in sight
Truck stops/rest stops
Places were sidewalk segments don't meet up right
Places that are normally busy outside of hours
Airports/bus stations/bus stops/ train stations
Things that double up (e.g. abandon rest stops) especially so.
Note: What I say here paints fae and especially unseelie (to some) as 'demonic' and evil, but I didn't focus on the more positive aspects on them because its already blown way out of proportion and the darker side of their true nature buried way down under the child appropriate image. Maybe I will make a more friendly entry about this in the future.
I've been looking for new music, and I often times check out playlists that people put on the internet (especially tumblr); I learned that if you want some good heavy, gritty, and dark music you normally search demon in terms of kin playlists, fae often get more cutesy, pretty, and melodic, mermaid often gets a lot of instrumental. This gave me an urge to see if I could find any unseelie playlists, just to see what it normally got, and instead come across a blog that has made a few good points that I thought on for a bit (now I'm still trying to determine if said blog is decent enough to respect with the proper salt or if the points made were merely coincidence). The points made were talking about seelie vs. unseelie, their tactics and methods, and such; the best phrase I found to show them as they are is 'would you prefer a poisoned flower or a knife in the dark?' Its asking would you like sweet lies spoken through kind smiles that mask the horrible truth or would you like to know you dance on the knife edge and be seduced by the terrible truth?
When it comes down to it there is very little difference in those seelie and unseelie, both are dangerous and expect something in return for assisting; the biggest difference is that the seelie will danger behind beautiful and sweet deception and the unseelie embrace and taunt you with danger to seduce you into not caring, this is not an every individual kind of statement but an overall one. Most unseelie give off too much air of danger to be able to hide it behind sweet deception, like an alligator's smile while offering you a flower, but they don't get satisfaction from that kind of game. They find it more enjoyable to take what it is you want, give you enough of a taste of it to make you want it badly, then say 'we can help you achieve that, but for a price' where they tell you (maybe in a half lie so that you don't fully understand what it is your being asked to give up), and wait to see if you take it with predatory smiles. Whereas the seelie will emerge you in a beautiful dreamscape that you are drawn in to (like the dance scene from the Labyrinth) you will enjoy it and for a bit forget what it is that you want (possibly completely forget and dance yourself to death without realizing), when you finally remember to ask they will smile kindly and give you what you want (maybe with the line 'don't worry about the payment now, if it is important enough for you then take it now and worry about that later'), and you go back to find that maybe too much time had past and now its too late for what you went to them for or if you make it in time the payment that comes after is too big for you to give.
Yesterday proved how little control humans have on her and how unpredictable she can be; thirteen tornados dropped in western Kentucky and three in my area alone. It was terrifying how little warning we were given and how out of the blue it was, it was a short distance behind my house when I got a call from a friend warning me of it; I'm not going to lie, I was hiding in the hall terrifyed until it past. Once I was sure it was safe I stepped out into the front yard with mom and watched it as it left town and got bigger, and for all the people it could've hit no one was killed and only 10 people with minor injuries were reported; for all the crowded places in its path it jumped over its a miracle. Its strange to be going through town and seeing the damage, my heart goes out to everyone who is having to pick up their life in the aftermath. Nyht
In an ironic twist yesterday was the aniversary of the movie Twister; sadly I missed the excitement since I was out roaming, I would've loved to see it. Flatline
Before I start the posts I just want to get this out of the way, this will be the only time I say this:
I know that I am physically human and have human capabilities
I know that physical transformation is impossible
I am not making grandoise claims, see law of attraction ( Law of attraction (New Thought) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )
I am misanthropric, that doesn't mean I hate people it just means that I have a more negative look on people
I may talk about religion and witchcraft
It should be common sense, but anything here that isn't sourced is personal belief (because just like people think beliefs constantly need to be captioned with 'its a belief, I think facts should be sourced so that others can readily check the validity)
So we get to start new with the blog here, alright, the only thing I think I will miss is my reference entries, but I don't need them any more. The key to what we are going to put here are simply things that I feel, want to say, and believe regardless on what someone else might say; I'm really struggling with staying on Kinmunity because I feel that the community has started to stagnate and I'm feeling less a part of it. There are many here that I have respect for and would like to keep what little touch I have with them, while there are others that I have no respect for at all the community as a whole has been a positive one in my experience, and I want to remain here and a part of it to see what it might achieve in the future.
This problem came up shortly after the New Year, I lost most of my drive to get on, so I tried to take a leave so that I could deal with the stuff I needed to focus on and hopefully recharge my motivation, but after coming back its still been a fight for me. I can log on, check to see if there is anything that I need to help with, and even look to see what kind of conversations are happening; but sadly I can barely find the motivation to join in even if its something that I'd really like to add my own reply to. I think that this is partly to blame for the fact that I've been becoming more and more aware of how I alter what I want to say for what I think will get the least critical comments, I am feeling more caged by not wanting to face the more vocal nay-sayers and less able to be who I am.
This is a problem I face on other fronts outside of the internet, and my fix for that? To be who I am and say 'screw anyone who wants to look down on me for it', thus I'm going to try it hear and see how it will make me feel in the near future. Nyht
