StuntWife I have a confession

brokenponycutiemark:

Though I am by predilection more like Akeldama (those shoes! Those cravats!) I fear I am more a combination of Lyall (manners towards strangers and intellectualism) and Maccon (“…clearly had only two modes of operation: annoyed and aroused.”)

Ugh. Yes. Humans vex me.

Ugh. Boys. Ugh.

This confession does not surprise me. Not one little bit. But I’m sorry to hear that humans and boys are vexing you.

And I’ve come to gleefully embrace my being Ivy Hisselpenny

Being flirty according to William H. Powell, a respectable 43-year-old.

I have this overwhelming urge to watch The Thin Man.

Except for the fact that I’m gay, the StuntWife is happily married to the RealHusband, and neither of us are Prohibition-era lushes - “The Thin Man” is, in some respects, an accurate reflection of how we treat each other (and William H. Powell is how I treat cute bears - IN MY HEAD. I’m an introvert eldergoth rutabaga - I can’t flirt with TREES AND ROCKS without making a fool of myself, much less an actual PERSON.)

do you ever get really emotional because lord of the rings

….ho ho ho.

TRICK QUESTION YES/NO

Sooooo let me tell you peeps something: while I like the LotR movies (the original trilogy moreso than the Hobbit movies), I am not a Huge Tolkien Fan. I don’t have to be, because I can outsource that fandom discourse via the StuntHusband. So every time of you have a post with … Silmarillion headcanons or something, I nod and think "I wonder what Alex would say to this”. 

Then I usually go back to browsing eBay for vintage gothic paperback lots, or reading vampire AU bandom fic. But all LotR wibbling? Makes me think of the StuntHusband.

(Who, if you get him riled up enough, will start swearing in Elvish. It’s a fun game!)

THOSE ARE ALL FABRICS AT JOANNS

I SEE THEM EVERY DAY AT WORK

I WANNA CUDDLE THEM 5 EVER

PLEASE THE WITCH CAMEO ONE

THREAT LEVEL: PUMPKIN!

(OMG the witchy cameo fabric! So cute!)

Oh god. What have I done.

I’ve volunteered to drive the StuntWife around to the craft stores this Saturday.

Including Joanns.

dooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooomed

::brandishes stack of coupons::

YES, YES YOU HAVE! LET’S GET GIDDY ON CAFFEINE AND SUGAR AND HIT THE STORES! Oooh, I bet the Halloween-themed ghost Peeps are in stock somewhere! 

(I think I need to make Halloween-fabric Gothic Heroine nightgowns.)

the amount of sass in this screencap is overwhelming

StuntWife and I.
"Oh no - another boy in Crow makeup. Tragic."

I might actually have a photo somewhere of the two of you in just this pose.

I’m betting you do. Because, well, yeah. That’s what we do.

I frequently end up dressing for a night out with the StuntWife and wonder if people look at me driving….and think is is how I appear.
I do hope so.

It was suggested by my roommate…

brokenponycutiemark:

…that the StuntWife and I are the Lucy and Ricky of gothdom.

I think this is appropriate. When I mentioned it to her, I was greeted with gales of hysterical laughter.

anothergoth said: Are you implying you are not, in fact, already an Evil Overlord?

brokenponycutiemark:

I get regular challenges from the StuntWife. She wants to be Vampire Queen, I want to be Evil Overlord, we slappy-hands-fight, and then start talking about “Hannibal”. It’s what we do.

I suspect our co-rulership will be very entertaining for those subjugated by us. All while the RealHusband holds Clovis Devilbunny and laughs at us.

There’s the Music of Hannibal’s Mind again

brokenponycutiemark:

Serene, deep, quiet…dissonant when he looks at Will.

THAT’S new.

And that high ringing tone? That’s a request. “Are you still in there, my beloved?”

And Will’s response is UNSATISFACTORY.

TIME TO ADJUST THE PROGRAMMING.

That caught my attention, too!

brokenponycutiemark:

Book of Love, “Witchcraft”. Someday, the StuntWife and I must lipsynch this in a music video.

Which would be more scarring - this, or “The Promise” by When In Rome?

brokenponycutiemark:

Sergei Prokofiev Suite No 2: “Romeo and Juliet, the Entrance of the Montagues and Capulets”.

The Montagues are absolutely 10000% pure bombast.

The Capulets are slithery and snakey.

And this is the music that plays in my head whenever the StuntWife and I make an entrance into an unsuspecting gathering. 

Heh. We really need to get a full orchestra to follow us around and provide appropriate music. And perhaps a choir.

I am oddly reminded of the StuntWife.

I CONFESS NOTHING! If I can’t have a pirate ship to wear on my head, at least I can have one at bathtime?

Oh StuntHusband, did you forget to feed the pet organist? He’s looking a little peak-y.
(What? When we finally create the Eldergoth haunted mansion retirement home, of COURSE we’re going to have a decorative creature to play appropriate music. Why are you questioning this?)

StuntHusband, did we ever decide where this would go in our eventual ElderGoth Retirement Haunted Mansion? The parlor? Or in a separate music room? I think it would be best in the parlor.
