.:An Unearthly Hue:. by NasikaSakura .:An Unearthly Hue:. by NasikaSakura
My entry for =Terribly's contest. [link]

"This story's missing a wishing well
No mirror to show and tell
No kiss to break the spell
I'm falling asleep

Every prince is a fantasy
The witch is inside of me
Her poison will wash away
The memory

We kill the lights and put on a show
It's all a lie, but you'll never know
Your star will shine, and then it will fall
And you will forget it all"

-- The Birthday Massacre's 'Kill The Lights' [link]

----------------

EDIT: //

Ah, well, I am a little sad about not getting a place and all, but oh well. I won't let it discourage me too much. :3 I still love this piece and am very proud of it. I like it just as much as I did even before the contest.

Omagersh I love The Birthday Massacre! The "compromised suicide" on her eye mask instantly reminded of that song :D I love all the cracks on her skin like she cracked the mirror

Me too! Thanks. It was my first time making broken glass, and I had fun with it. >w<
Originally, I was going to have it having 2 broken reflections-- one of a wishing well and one of a glass slipper, but I ended up liking the blood better.

It is not emophobia. :U I do not agree with it in reality, but I find gothic arts to be very intriguing and many times, absolutely beautiful. (That must sounds extraordinarily odd coming from me. XD )

I know it is. XD You've said so a lot. lol
Have any faves of their songs, send them my way please. :)
*was listening to about 12 last night, lol, totally exagerated there *
I wanted to put as many details relating to the lyrics as I could but sacrificed having mixed reflections of a broken glass slipper and an old wishing well in the cracked mirror for the blood to balance the use of red. :3 I am happy with the outcome though.
I still have the pale flowers on the fingernails, the many stars dangling by thin threads, and the sleeping mask though.

Omg its so hard to choose.. but my faves are Blue, Holiday, Weekend, I think were alone now, and Control BUT seriously all their songs are just asfklashglas

Yes i really like the stars! So pretty C:

I already watched/listened to Blue. Quite eerie, but genius. (Gave me such bad chills!! XD)

To me, Controlsounds like young 'love' where youths so unconcerned with other things 'fall in love forever' with one person, and then soon after, much like a trend that goes out of season, they fall out of love and into love with another.

I remember you telling me of Holiday before and it has some of my favorite lyrics, "On and on the music plays, Memories in paraphrase Falling past my window like the morning rain."

I Think We're Alone Now was quite different indeed. 0u0 Not bad though. They are so gifted in so many different genres, it's marvelous. And I love the lead girl's voice. So wonderfully majestic-- not too cold and not too sweet. A perfect balance.

I've only been to one concert before, but that was because I got in for free. asdfghjkl I didn't realize my friend was the niece of Timothy Schmit from The Eagles! XDD *total space cadet* lol So I got in with the family backstage and all. It was cool. First and only concert I've ever been to. 0u0

After that, there's another one here. [link] It's odd, but most of their music is that way. XD Don't feel bad if you don't entirely understand. :3 It's often difficult to understand some of their lyrics even if you are fluent in English. lol
