High School Reunion
There seemed to be more of them this year than there were five years prior.  She figured that was understandable...children were easy to make if you had the resources.  But did there have to be so many? Were her classmates trying to make her feel unsuccessful? If so, it wasn't working;  instead it made Cassidy feel relieved she didn't have to deal with all of it.  As she stared out at the gym full of kids and soccer moms that used to be cheerleaders, Cassidy Larsen felt her mouth curl into a slight smile as she ran her hand through her dyed red hair...she was glad she didn't have children.  
Not that she didn't like them, no...but they were too much responsibility.  Plus it seemed her former classmates had turned into their own parents.  She figured their lives weren't boring per se...after all, how could life be boring with a bunch of kids to raise? It was just...too traditional for her.  She didn't want to continue the endless cycle of high sch

Journal
Society's 'Standards'
If you are reserved and quiet, you are an emo kid.
If you are open and expressive you are attention hungry
If you are a virgin by 16, you are doing something wrong.
If you lose it by 16 you are a Whore
If you don´t compliment yourself, you are begging for compliments.
If you do compliment yourself, you are full of yourself.
If you are unique, you are weird
If you are "normal", you are boring.
It´s hard to find yourself in a world so centered around perfection, when in reality imperfection is what defines us.
Don't you agree?
(Stolen from CelineDGD and CountessSana )

The Leaving Sun And Moon
Sun leaving my sky
Hear my song die
Moon going from my heart
See my feathers drift
There can be no more of me
The world has moved on
So one more time I ask
I sing and dance to Heaven
Sun watch over the land
It gave me joy long ago
Moon protect the spirits
They made me live proudly
I only want to know flowers will bloom
Birds will get to fly into the deep blue

Lady Moon Wanders
Lady Moon wanders
The sky hides her tears
She tries to forget
Tries to find another dream
Though heaven is empty
Heaven is scary without him
So the rain keeps falling
And the storm keeps going
Lady Moon lingers
The sky hides her sorrow

face this fact
you can get angry if you like
but weather or not you agree with what i'm saying
will not prevent it from being said
i do not see the world in black and white
nor is it a rainbow before my eyes
i see it more as a gray scale world
with brilliant flashes of colour
here and there
i am a man,
you can argue that fact with me if you like,
but it will not change the way i feel,
the way i am
just like how others will not change
just because you tell them they are wrong
fight for your rights, yes
get them
call it good
we cannot change every person into
what we wish they were
and if we try then we are no better then the ones we say are in the wrong
there will always be people
to disagree
so it's time to grow up
and face this fact
get what we came for
and let the rest fall as it will

Heart of Woe

My heart full of woe
Will she turn away
How my face disturbs them so
Will she ever look back?
*
My spine twisted and wrecked
As my sight sees naught but black
Marie sings for them
Break of dawn
Hear her ring
Will my light come back again?

...and now I can't sort my favorites into folders anymore! What's up with that? 

Is that a fairly new feature? I don't like it!


Hey, guys, I'm back! Sorry I was gone so long.  For some reason my laptop has decided to give me a break and actually work with this site.  It's the darndest thing, it wasn't working for so long and now it does *scratches head*.

Back in April I was hit with a huge bout of illness.  I was hospitalized with pneumococcal pneumonia, which then spiraled into fungal meningitis.  I was out of it for a week or two, then spent another week in the hospital before they let me go home.  The doctors told my parents that they'd only see two other cases ALMOST as bad as mine...and one of them died :fear:.  I'm glad I'm still here, I was so delirious I could have died and not even known I was dying.  Scary. 

In other news, Johnathan and I and our friend Damien have moved into a house together! :D We're still getting stuff cleaned up and put into their proper places, but I think it's gonna be a great place to live :D

Anyway, sorry I was gone so long, folks! I missed you all :heart: and I'm glad to be back!

You guys will never believe what happened to me!

First, I am again sorry I've been away for so long. Part of it is that my laptop still won't let me get on here so I have to keep using this one. But another reason has come up as well, and I've been dying to tell you guys about it. So now I will.


I am now in a polyamorous relationship!  For those who might not know what that means, it means I am in a relationship with more than one person. I now have a boyfriend and a girlfriend. I shall now explain how this came about. Names will be changed to protect certain parties who are in the closet or are no longer in our lives.


My marriage to Wayne began in 09...shortly after that I met John. He and I became friends pretty much instantly because he was a goofball with many of the same interests as I. However, that's all it was, was a platonic friendship. I had a husband I had no intention of cheating on, and John was four years younger than me.


One major interest John and I had in common was a love for Gary Oldman. We'd both seen him in lots of movies and marvelled at his talent. I'd gone on a Gary kick a couple years before and had collected a lot of his movies, so I shared them with John. That cemented his love for Gary and ever since then he's been my Gary Oldman buddy.


About a year or so after we met, John began dating Velma, a young woman about a year older than himself. They dated for a little bit, but then to broke up because her upbringing was even more religiously strict than mine, an John's a pretty staunch nonbeliever.


The years went by and my marriage became stale, but I still kept true to Wayne. I had found myself, however, becoming a little attracted to John. He'd grown his hair long, was (still is) a musician and has beautiful hands with long slender guitar fingers. After realizing I'd become attracted to him, he started dating a woman name Mari. This make me a tiny bit sad, but I was still married, so I was happy for John and his new lady.


She was nice enough at first, and always nice to me even though she liked to use me as a taxi service. Neither she nor John drove (John can drive, but has no working car). I would pal around with them, because I like hanging out with John. Soon, though, Mari decided they should move to Ohio because she had outstanding warrants against her name (not sure what for), so she wanted to go and do her time and be reunited with her little daughter.


After visiting friends in Frankfort one summer, Wayne and I went an move in with friends in Stamping Ground. Those who've been friends with me for a long time know how much I hated Stamping Ground, so I won't go into that. Suffice it to say, it sucked...so while we were there, Wayne and I decided to get divorced and it happened two years later.


I stayed by myself for a whole year and a couple months. It was okay, I learned to be somewhat self sufficient even though I've been living with roommates. It's more common than you think though, young people moving in with roommates because the cost of living is so high these days. Anyway, over the time I'd been away from my college town, I found out that Mari went crazy on John in Ohio and accused him of all sorts of things he didn't do and he moved back to KY. I got back in touch with John over the summer and he decided to call me back in June.


We got to talking and it turns out he'd had feelings for me from the first day we'd met He said that all the times he'd come to campus hang out with my group of friends, he'd mostly come just to see me. He'd thought I was interesting and he appreciated my choice of actors and liked the way my mind worked. He told me I' d always been there for him to talk to him when he was down and I was flattered and completely blown away. I told him I always had a soft spot for him too and we began a flirtation.


However, there was just one problem. He'd recently gotten back together with Velma, and the two seemed pretty happy together. So I figured it was just a little flirtation and nothing would come of it. So we went back to just talking back and forth on FB and I went to Fandomfest and had a blast and all like that.


So a few weeks after I got back from Fandomfest, John and I began hatting again on FB and began talking seriously about a relationship. I kept telling him I didn't want to cheat on Velma, and he understood and didn't want to cheat on her either. So he asked her about an open relationship. To his surprise she agree to one! To MY surprise she was excited when he mentioned my name!


The three of us met in town the next day and Velma confirmed it....and we began an open relationship that very day. But the story doesn't end here.


A few weeks later John moved back into my town because he'd been living with his parents. His father helped him move into an apartment owned by Velma's aunt. About a day after he move in Velma revealed that she was excited to let me into the relationship because she'd always been into me as well! That truly surprise me because I didn't think she knew me well enough to be into me. However, that day our open relationship became a polyamorous one.

Velma's a cute lady with short hair and a tomboyish way to her.  I've always been drawn to the tomboyish types (seriously, since first grade) :meow:.  OH, and I've always had a thing for feminine men, and John loves to wear dresses and makeup  :love:


You see, dear friends, at the end of my marriage I realized that I didn't want anything traditional ever again. I' d been curious about women for quite some time and I was also curious about poly relationships. Imagine my surprise when I suddenly found myself in one that included a woman!

It's a work in progress, and the three of us have been setting ground rules and are smoothing out insecurities. We're a unit...we're our own support system and it's beautiful, guys, it really is. I love these people with all my heart :heart:.


So that's where I've been, folks. I swear I'm not making this up...my life has gotten a whole lot more interesting....and I love it :heart:.

It seems like not only do I have to get on my old laptop to get on here....sometimes the internet doesn't even work on this one :(.  I hope this laptop isn't really dying.  The internet seems to work ok right now, so I'm taking this time to answer messages :).
Emily's gifts!
Emily had some surprises for me at the con.  She made me a Billy Bibbit necklace, a Martin Klamski keychain, and a Charles Lee Ray and Tiffany refrigerator magnet, featuring Marleigh art (aka :iconhumanpincushion: ) :D.  I will treasure them forever :heart:

Chucky Art
Emily bought this art for herself, because she likes to support artists :heart:.  However, when it was time to go home she realize she couldn’t take it on the plane with her.  So she gave it to me :)
I put it up beside my Rocky Horror poster...and right above my dolls.  Because I am strange :meow:

Funko Pop Dolls
Chucky fits right in with my Riff Raff and my Pepper :meow:
Loading...
My first Chucky doll
My first ever Chucky doll...signed by Brad! :D

When I told him this is my first Chucky doll he said "Congratulations!" :P
Loading...
Signed Pic
I took the pic I had with Brad thirteen years ago and he signed it :).  He made the comment "I looked so young in this pic"....well I think he looks just as good now as he did then :heart:
Loading...
Group Shot
I met some online friends at the con, and made a new friend too! My friends and I met a girl named Zoe, who cosplayed as Chucky the first day and Harley Quinn the second day :D.  So this is Zoey, Me, Colleen, and Emily.  I hid in the back because, usually, I don't like pics of myself.  I only posed for pics with Brad because Brad xD. 
Loading...
Yay!
Me and Brad again.  I asked Emily to take this one in case the one I had taken with my own camera didn't work.  I'm glad I did, because my disposable camera was crap. 

I kinda wish he'd smiled bigger, but I also realize that if he smiled really big for every picture a fan took with him...his face would fall off.  So I'm content that he was willing to take pictures with me.  And that he touched me :meow:.
Loading...
Brad talking to Nicole!
I called my friend Nicole from the con and asked Brad if he would talk to her...and he did! :D  He talked to her for a good few minutes!  He's officially my number one fave :heart:
Loading...
I'll just have to get on this one more often...and hope it doesn't die completely :P
...and now I can't sort my favorites into folders anymore! What's up with that?

Hey Stephen!
Wow, this is weird....DA seems to be working again on this laptop (the one that was new last year)....I hope it stays working :).  

How have you been?

Omg, so many things have been happening.  I moved into a house with my boyfriend and our mutual friend.  I got sick last month with meningitis and had to be in the hospital (I'm better now).  I've been thinking about you and hoping you didn't think I'd abandoned or forgotten about you.  I just wasn't able to get on DA, partly because it was making my computer freeze, but also because it wasn't letting me reset my password.  For some weird reason it just let me, so I guess I just needed to give it  a few months, lol.

Anyway,  I hope you're doing ok :). ttyl!

Hey! Its great to hear from you, I've had my ups and downs as well. I was actually more concerned about you honestly, I'd feel bad if something happened to you and I never found out. I'm glad you are doing so well.  I hope this isn't too personal, but last we talked you were in a triad relationship, are you guys still together or did you find someone new?

Well, me and Johnathan are still together.  Daphne is living with us, but our triad is kinda complicated because Daphne has come out as a trans man named Damien and prefers women.  Johnathan is still attracted to Damien, but D only loves him as a friend and a brother.
