paradoxy-intent said: I have a question, my Lady of the Manners! I noticed your post talking about color (regarding an ask that you reblogged), and I was wondering if pink (pastel preferably for me) is an acceptable thing for a goth wardrobe? I really love my pastel pink, but I still really adore goth fashions...
Goodness, is pink an acceptable thing for a goth wardrobe?
Darling, you can wear ANY COLORS YOU WANT and be a goth. I am very partial to black and cupcake pink, myself.
The “pastel goth” movement sometimes makes me tilt my head in fond confusion, but only because I wasn’t sure about it being anything other than an elaborate tumblr-joke. But I have no problems with the pastel goth folks, and quite like some of the creepy-cute iconography they use.

I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.
1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.
Throwback Thursday: more from my tragic LARPing past. From the Seattle Camarilla “Prom”, 1993 or 1994, I think? Yes, I’m the one with the big hair and white dress
This event will always be a fond memory for me, because when my very-recently-ex boyfriend showed up, the StuntHusband took advantage of being the DJ and promptly played "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me". I sat down on the dance floor and laughed hysterically, while the ex stomped out of the room.
The others, from left to right: Amber, Wolf, the StuntHusband (peering over my shoulder), Kyle (partially hidden by my hair), Wade, and Jana.
hannah-hysteria said: Hello! I'm writing to ask for some help. I'm looking for a book where the protagonist has and older sibling that died before birth or died at a very young age and is a replacement for this lost child. I'm trying to put together a prose poetry piece for speech team this year and this topic is very important to me because I am a replacement for a stillborn child. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and have a lovely evening :3
The only book that immediately springs to mind is The Seance by John Harwood. What about the rest of you folks in Tumblrland? Any of you have book suggestions for hannah-hysteria ?
Goth Upkeep: glitter and absinthe edition.
(The manicure is some burgundy UV gel polish, with a mix of Aromaleigh’s Salome and Carmilla loose glitter. Dear minim-calibre, thank you for loaning me the gel manicure lamp!)
