And that's that. :)
Happy, happy birthday, bb! I hope you've had a lovely day filled with everything and everyone you love best! ♥
You're such a beautiful, inspirational person and a wonderful friend, and I'm just so incredibly happy to know you! *hugs & loves*
Here's a little something for you. The first manip I've made since forever. I'm afraid it came out a bit unfortunate-looking, but hopefully the awesomeness that is Spuffy will make up for it a little bit.Click on the thumbnail to view full size.
Peter Steele 4.1.1962 - 14.4.2010
(Type O Negative - Blood & Fire)
Peter, your music has helped me through times of pain, loss and despair. Again and again you've saved me from drowning, and there are no words to express how grateful I am.
There is a hole in the world now, where you used to be. A huge black void that can never be filled. My heart aches without you. I miss you like hell.
Rest in peace, you beautiful soul. I love you.
I am late, as per usual. It's so embarrassing and infuriating that I keep missing the actual dates again and again. You definitely deserve better. Failbot = me. I'm truly sorry about this. :(
Nevertheless, happy birthday, Tammy! I hope you had a lovely day and that the coming year will be filled with happiness and joy and fulfilled dreams! *hugshugshugs*
You're a wonderful person through and through and I'm honored to be able to call you a friend. As corny as it may sound, it brings tears of gratitude to my eyes that you haven't given up on me despite of my long, recurring absences. Thank you so much, you amazing you! Love you loads, I do! ♥
I have a little present for you. I guess it could be called a Spike manip, although in this case I think a well-meaning yet slightly failed attempt at manipping would probably be more accurate. Lately, I've been having a bit of a hard time coping both mentally and physically, which in my case is not a good place to be when I'm trying to get a manip started. My mind was totally blank and none of the base pics I found inspired me. I felt so drained and useless and barren. And then I got to thinking about you - the person this yet to be made manip was supposed to be a gift to - and how you always manage to cheer me up and make me smile. And I realized that if I could give you back even a smidgen of what you've so generously given me; if I could make you a manip that would cheer you up or make you smile even just a little bit, then I'd have actually done something worthwhile. And with that thought in mind I set to work and the results can be seen behind the cut. It's nothing fancy - more like clumsy, I'm afraid - but hopefully the feeling and inspiration behind it will come through. *is hopeful*( This way to the prezzieCollapse )
I can't lose you
I can't lose you
No I can't lose you
I can't lose you
(Type O Negative - Can't Lose You)
It's been a week now since I learned about Type O Negative's Peter Steele's death, and I am still in utter shock. I want it not to be true. I want the world to stop playing this awful prank on us so that I can stop tearing up every other second. So that this bloody ache inside of me would go away. And first and foremost so that Peter would still be here with us being his impeccable self and writing music like no one else.
I - I think I'd somehow naively lulled myself into thinking that he would always be there. Took him to be made of steel even though he constantly reminded us that he wasn't.
No, why? Oh God I miss you
No, why? Oh God I miss you
I really miss you
(Type O Negative - Everything Dies)
For 12 years Peter and Type O Negative have been my bedrock, my safe haven and my safety net - solid, unwavering, endlessly kind and patient. Their music has helped me through some of the worst times of my life and soundtracked many of the best. I felt like every note and riff and rhyme in their music told me this:
If you fall, I will catch you
When you're lost, I'll be there soon
Far away, but of course near
When you're sad, I'm always here
(Type O Negative - Nettie)
Peter was an amazing musician with one of the most glorious voices in the history of ever. I loved him as a lyricist, too - he was so versatile and being it a heart-breakingly beautiful or a painfully insightful or a totally tongue in cheek funny lyric he always managed to affect me. And he always meant what he said. He had a sarcastic, self-deprecating sense of humor that I absolutely adored, and without which this world is going to be a much bleaker place. And yeah, he was gorgeous, too. Like a titan in his prime, towering over everyone. Talented, smart, funny and beautiful, he was all that and more, and yet he thought so little of himself. Just thinking about that breaks my heart.
48 years seems so awfully, unfairly short time for him to have had in this world. There should have been at least 48 years more. And the fact that it was his heart that failed him, that he died of a broken heart - it just makes something inside me die, too.
It's better to burn
quickly and bright
Than slowly and dull
without a fight
(Type O Negative - World Coming Down)
Thank you, Peter, for everything. I love you and I miss you.
( How quickly pass the days, long is the night. Lying in bed awake, bathed in starlight.Collapse )
There are a few videos and loads of animated gifs behind the cut, so I guess it's not exactly dial-up friendly in there.
(Wow, there are so many birthdays in the latter part of March! Also, I think I'm turning into a dinosaur. My hands are currently like T-Rex's forelimbs - ridiculous looking, pretty much useless and possibly two-digited. Ew, do not want! /whiny bitch being whiny. Please ignore me.)
Happy birthday, of_too_minds
! I hope you're having a fantabulous day and that the year to come will be a good one! *hugs you tight*
You're a wonderful person, an amazing artist and I value your friendship highly. You're one of my oldest LJ friends and the fact that you haven't given up on me despite the bumpiness of the ride means the world to me. Thank you, sweetie! I love you! ♥
I made a little present for you. A Spike shaped one. I know I kinda suck at giving ratings to my stuff, but I guess I'd categorize this manip as semi-worksafe. As in there is some skin showing and it's kinda suggestive, but I don't think there's anything particularly explicit about it.( This way to the prezzieCollapse )
(Another wonderfully ignorable health update: The joints of my fingers are still inflamed, and it seems that my wrists are following suit. But I'll be damned if I don't make this post happen!)
Happy birthday, Tiffany! I hope you're having a wonderful day and that the year to come will be one of happiness and joy! *gives you a big-ass birthday hug*
You've brought so much joy to my life I don't think I'll ever be able to thank you enough. I'm so very happy that our paths have crossed. Your art and artistic skills never cease to amaze me. You're a strong, beautiful and exceptionally talented real life heroine with a heart of gold. It is such a huge blessing to have you in my life, and I am honored to be able to call you a friend. I love you. ♥
I sent you a little something via snail mail last week. The package will probably arrive a bit late, so in the meantime here's a wee manippy manip for you. It's nothing fancy, but at least there are Spike and Buffy in it. Being all cuddly and stuff. And of course, it was made with love with the loveliest person in mind. I hope you like it, sweetie!

Ngl, the head angles on this one were from the pits of hell. And thank heavens I was, for once, early with the gift making, because I couldn't manip squat with these damned flipper hands of mine. :/
