Vampire Smile - Kyla la Grange

Baby you need to leave,
cause I’m getting drunk on your noble deeds.
It doesn’t matter that they don’t get done,
when I feel this cold they’re like the fucking sun.

Baby I need a friend,
but I’m a vampire smile,
you’ll meet a sticky end.
I’m here trying not to bite your neck,
but it’s beautiful and I’m gonna get…

…so drunk on you and kill your friends.
You’ll need me and we can be obsessed.
And I can touch your hair and taste your skin,
the ghosts won’t matter ‘cause we’ll hide in sin.


Anonymous asked:
"what's your favourite fairytale princess narrative arc? also I love 'all stars are worlds' but I have no idea where it's from, did you make it up?"

That’s a hard question, anon! I like ones where the princess can take charge of herself and her destiny, I also love forest stories. I’m not sure if that answers your question, I apologize if it does not — some of my favorite tales are: Beauty and the BeastSnow White, Bluebeard, and others! :)

I’m glad you love that quote. Sadly, I did not make it up. It is taken from Tess of the D’Urbervilles

" “Did you say the stars were worlds, Tess?"

"Yes."

"All like ours?"

"I don’t know, but I think so. They sometimes seem to be like the apples on our stubbard-tree. Most of them splendid and sound - a few blighted."

"Which do we live on - a splendid one or a blighted one?"

"A blighted one.” "

I took some liberties with the quote, it is not a direct copy from Thomas Hardy, but the general idea is. I’m glad you like it though! :) I do love writing — perhaps I will do something inspired by the ‘all stars are worlds’.

Happy Birthday Lucrezia Borgia(b. April 18, 1480)

lucrezia borgia in the assassin

What weapons do I have with which to protect myself? Your beauty. Is that a weapon? It can be deadly, when well used. But beauty doesn’t last forever. Gone, like the snows of last year. What else? When beauty fades? Your wit. Your intelligence. And I have those weapons? Oh, in abundance. You should cultivate them. You will be married some day. You may need them - sooner than you think.
