A Study in SleepI don't think I have to convince anyone reading this that sleep is awesome. That is pretty much a fact within itself. Sleep is wonderful. That being said, I have often been asked why I sleep so much. And I do sleep quite a bit. Probably more than your "recommended daily dose." I am therefore going to take up some of your precious (or, I'm sure, not-so-precious) time to explain to you why sleep means so much to me.A Study in Sleep by HeadmistressMercedes
My bed understands me like a friend. My bed is not sentient, of course, but it seems to empathize with all I feel. All day, every day, I am on my feet, and all my worries, woes, cares, and suffering, whether it be a lot or a little, weighs down upon my shoulders. All that makes them ache. All that makes my back bend. It makes my back ache. It makes my feet heavy. It makes them ache. And while sitting can help alleviate the stress, a bed completely and utterly supports you. When you lay down upon a nice, firm-but-yielding mattress, your cares are no longer yous alone to
In Lieu OfYou've arrived at my door once again,In Lieu Of by HeadmistressMercedes
a bunch of red roses tucked firmly in your hand.
Oh, my love,
do you not know?
Can you not see?
Graceful long stems with wither and wilt,
the weight of bloody tears too much to bear.
No, my love, no flowers for me.
You've come around to my garden again,
a diamond pendant in a velvet box yours to give.
Oh, my darling,
are you so blind?
Can you not tell?
Diamonds only glitter when the sunlight can reach it,
and how can it, when buried and lost in the trash on my floor?
No, my darling, I need no diamonds.
You're waiting outside my window again,
Pure, rich truffles arranged in a heart-shaped box offered up.
Oh, my sweetness,
do you not understand?
Can you not taste it?
The stale bitterness of chocolate left to rot
for a mouth that wishes not food will not eat.
No, my sweetness, I'll eat no truffles.
I'll wear no diamonds.
I'll smell no roses.
Mere trifles to dull the ache,
that slow burning march of a heart in no mood to beat.
You have entered the realm of The Headmistress. Be warned...if you are of sound mind and body...then I do not want you within my land's borders. Only the truly and wonderfully insane can grace my gardens.|
Within my palace walls, you shall find me, engaging myself in numerous artistic endeavours. I sit at my desk and carve out words upon pixelated stone, I use my shutterbox to capture images of the world around me, I take up my pens and ink and attempt to sketch what my brilliantly botched mind comes up with, and I take images from the outside world and attempt to manipulate them into works of art, using only the best software that I have yet to figure out.
If you cannot accept that which I love, here in my beloved land of Fan-Dôm, then you are not welcome. I have many sectors of this land that I live in and take part in. As of current, I am in the rebellion, fighting alongside those who flock under the sign of the Mockingjay. But I have also been taken by the likes of Sherlock, Harry Potter, Wallander, The Hobbit/LOTR, and many more.
I humbly thank my Vice-Queen, for her unending loyalty (and for my wonderful ID, which she made just for me!! ♥♥). She is my skulker in the Tumblr shadows to hunt out new and exciting news and gifs for me. In return, I grant her Maganderings in the form of words so that she may read them and enjoy the little ship we built and sailed together.
I am a fair and generous ruler. I enjoy speaking with my minions, my loyal subjects, as it gives me great pleasure. Do not be daunted by my title. Should you wish to speak to me, your request for an audience will not be refused. If, however, you should cross me...it might very well be the last thing you ever do.
