Go Watch Marble Hornets
Last week, a web series called Marble Hornets ended. It took 5 years, 87 entries, 2 YouTube channels, and 555 tweets to finish. You should go watch it.
Over the course of those five years, 3 amateur filmmakers created 3 seasons of a real-time fictional web video series consisting of YouTube videos uploaded one by one. Marble Hornets was promoted as a horror series, but really, it was more than that. The first season was one of the most terrifying pieces of entertainment I’ve ever watched. The creators managed to instill bone-gripping fear in their viewers for nearly every moment of every entry, all while telling a story so intriguing that no one wanted to stop watching. The next two seasons morphed into a mystery series with all of the excitement of the first season. The story was simultaneously too supernatural to believe and just real enough to keep you wondering in the back of your head, “is this really happening?” The five year timeline arose not simply because of production, but because the events in the series were supposedly happening in the present day, with each entry often serving as a handheld camera account of what had happened to the channel’s owner in the past few days. The actors aged and changed in real time over the life of the series, and the entries coincided with tweets from the the narrators, giving Marble Hornets a sense of realism that television shows can’t come close to achieving.
Marble Hornets combined the style and mythological themes of Blair Witch Project with the creativity of the most viral internet phenomenon and the utter dread of the closing scene of The Silence of the Lambs. When I first was shown it, I wrote it off as another dumb YouTube series. Five years later, I’m writing about it. So, if you have a chance, give it a shot. You might enjoy it. And if you’re lucky, you might not be able to sleep very well tonight.

As a college student, currently really hungry with nothing to eat, I understand how hard it can be to get food. Sometimes you really just don’t have the money to eat and when you do, you waste it all on fast food instead of stocking up on cheap things because you’re so tired of Ramen Noodes and canned food you could barf. So, I’ve composed a list of recipes and resources that will fit a college kid’s budget and appetite. Don’t go hungry! <3

narcissa malfoy was probably the most powerful occlumens in hogwarts history and nobody knew

she literally stood up to lord voldemort and lied that harry potter was dead and i don’t know about you but if i were an evil ruler i would probably want to triple-check that my nemesis was, you know, actually deceased

voldemort had actual doubts about snape

narcissa swans on by without a whisper, without a second glance

There are times when I am annoyed with the Tumblr community. This is not one of those times.

Moon Prism Power

In the name of the moon, here is my latest piece!

In honor of the new Sailor Moon Crystal anime, I wanted to try my hand at the new illustration style, taking inspiration from the title cards of the show, the beautifully watercolored backgrounds, and the first glimpse we got as fans of the new anime itself!

Prints (along with some other merch) are available in my online society6 shop. Also, using this LINK I am currently offering FREE worldwide shipping (and $5 off the new biker tank tops) on all of my pieces until July 13th,
so check them out quick!

Thanks so much for the support!
