Story: Creepy crawlies

Story is back on track. Here's the link for the last part: solution to Darkness. Feel free to leave suggestions, improvement ideas or feelings how you think story should continue on the comments. Enjoy!

   Xrir lied on the grass her eyes closed. Sun had risen as the lush golden trees of Cal'cannth bathed in a morning sun. Vampires or that thing, "haunt", seemed just like an ancient disturbing memory.
   Memory, what one would describe to something like a shipwreck at middle of the foggy sea. Gigantic, threatening, indisputably present but at the same time distant and unreal. 
   She didn't want to move. It would disturb the serenity, that could disappear at anytime. No, she couldn't risk it; losing a moment of sanity.
   Suddenly, Xrir felt tickling feeling on her forearm. She couldn't stop smiling until turned and saw little bugs scuttling all over her. She was laying on a nest of some sort, and this realization made her to stand up. 
   "Off you go little ones..." Xrir said with gentle voice as she shook bugs from her clothes. 
   Cling! Sharp, magical clink interrupted her. It was something in her pocket. It was the amulet. Xrir swallowed heavily and threw amulet to the bug nest. It was the very testament that everything really happened. How she got it? It was left behind. Up. There. Xrir decided not to look up. She didn't want any confirmation if something was above her or not.
   Xrir walked in forest searching a road of some sort. She looked only front of her and tried not to think about the looming presence. It was just in her mind. Little fright that's all.
   Snap. A branch snapped somewhere behind her. Xrir quickened her step.
   "Don't look back." Xrir repeated to herself whispering as quietly as possible. Footsteps. She could spot footsteps behind her. Something is following her. Xrir quickened her step and soon enough she noticed herself to be running. 
   Temptation to look behind her became unbearable as the footsteps seemingly became quieter and quieter. With a quick glance she noticed tall man following her.
  "Miss!" Man yelled as soon as Xrir had made eye contact with him.
Xrir kept running until saw a road opening front of her.
  "Excuse me!" Man insisted.
Xrir wasn't going to stop. Thump. Even though she had plunged into a ditch before the road. The impending monologue became louder; he was gaining on her.
   Xrir floundered up from the ditch onto the road and started running as fast as she could. Only words she could comprehend was something about her rudeness and how typical this was for such lowly beings. How could he behave like this? Xrir felt more disgusted than afraid of the situation more she thought of it.
  Rugged sign next to road suggested the nearest town to be only fifteen minutes away; Gunumrah. She knew she could make it, without befriending with this creepy fellow. Who cares what he has to say. She doesn't need to hear it. No, not after what she had experienced! "I would like to see him try!"

To be continued...

Outfit: Yellow Frost

 We've really tried our best to take pics outside this winter.
And I must say that I'm pretty happy with our results :D
It was a random lucky coincidence that the ground was covered in frost when we dressed up in bright yellow/green.

 These outfits are ofc too cold to wear outside without a big coat
but we take our coats of just for you guys!
You want to see Finnish forest as a background
not our white wall.

Finnish people are never cold (except Lindi ;)).

 I love yellow + puprle combo :D

 Look at the dark forest...
So ominous :S 

 And I had to go crazy with the makeup too ^w^
I should have had yellow heart cheeks with this outfit tho... :0


 And Haribo had to join us because he is ...
well -yellow.

 shorts: thrifted
tights: old
turtleneck: old
suspenders: ninja
shoes: gift (moonboot)

Ilar was brave enough to enter the darker side of the forest.

Ilar was wearing our new home comfort hoodie (Mike hoodie).
Because the colour is so gorgeous.
And it's warm.

Ilar always asks me to pose differently.
Then he says: "That pose is so typical Lind!" :D
So he went crazy with his poses...
So much story going on here.
Lets just enjoy the show ;)

hoodie: thrifted
everything else: old

Artsy: Tom of Finland

Hello everyone!
In this short post I want to talk about a thing that's corner stone of our identity and lifestyle; art.
Art affects, touches and expresses the very concept we call humanity. Art is for everyone to enjoy, something to learn from, and this is the reason why I want to show a very special website for you.

Artsy is great legal gallery website that makes art accessible and promotes arts education for everyone around the world!
What is nice and much appreciated as well is that artsy informs upcoming / ongoing art shows and galleries in cities all over the world! (It's funny 'cus we discussed few days ago how hard it is to keep dated with art shows online.)
One can also buy original art from artsy even though prices can be quite high for an average art student. x)

We actually came in touch with this website with our 
Tom of Finland art posts.
Here's Artsy's Tom of Finland page. 
Eye candy for Tom of Finland fans!

"I know my little 'dirty drawings' are never going to hang in the main salons of the Louvre, but it would be nice if - I would like to say 'when,' but I better say 'if' - our world learns to accept all the different ways of loving." -Tom of Finland

In the end Artsy is very handy website to discover, experience and learn from art and how to interpret it.
This is very important for people like us.
Check them out, it's worth it. I know it is for us. :)
