So last night I walked around some of the haunted places in Newcastle with
We first went to a little ruined house next to the castle keep, I've known this place for a long time and it seemed like a good place to start as it had always felt safe to me and I used to go eat lunch there with friends after our college campus moved to nearby and none of use liked the new cafeteria.
Despite being a ruined, roofless house on a freezing cold night, one part of the room felt warmer than the rest. said that she felt that someone had been baking in there and that there was a thin woman surrounded by children that weren't her own.
I decided to try using my scrying mirror.
Very little happened at first (in retrospect though I was sitting on part of the ruined wall, and why would there be anybody in the wall?), so I moved to the middle of the floor.
At first a thin woman with a pointed nose who matched up with what had been saying, but just as I felt I could see her clearly the image changed, it was hard to focus because there seemed to be so many people there.
One of the strangest images I saw looked like some kind of monster (I know, I sound absoloutly batshit insane right now right? :/), and for some reason I wasn't scared of it, which is odd, but this was literally seconds before said that she thought the woman was an abortionist, so I wonder if maybe she was trying to show me that people thought she was a monster but she wasn't?

Next we walked along the path next to the house that leads along to behind The Cooperage. said there was a pimp just outside of the house trying to look imposing, and further along there was a woman whose throat had been cut. She hadn't seen it coming, the pimp was trying to claim he'd done it but said he hadn't.
A little further along there was a nasty man (I missed some of what said here because I kept getting distracted by a lot of noises coming from the direction she said he was in and I was trying to make sure there wasn't like a badger or something there), and that at the other side of the fence there were laughing women and a tavern.

A little further along the walkway opens out into a square and said there was a woman there singing. There is a notice board at the end of the square that explains that the square used to be a fish market.

A little further along there is what looks to me like a blocked up vault under a bridge, everybody seemed to agree with me that it looked like it had been bricked up at another time and it wouldn't be surprising if there was something behind it.

We then turned a corner and started to head through a tunnel, the last time I had been there I had felt quite odd and hurried through, which is pretty much what everybody else did this time (although I didn't feel the same), Bev however couldn't walk through and ended up going the long was back around to the ruined house.

Back in the ruined house we decided to head around to the other ruined house on the other side of the wall. To do that we had to walk though a covered walkway that I knew there was a story about but I didn't say so that I didn't lead anybody (I will look it up and add some links).
said that someone had been murdered there and it had been a very vicious attack that had kept going long after the person was dead.
What I had previously heard about the area was that a young woman had been murdered in there and she had been so badly beaten and messed up that it was almost impossible to identify her.

Next we headed past the castle keep and headed towards Black Gate.
Before we got to the Black Gate I wanted to head down to an area under the railway bridge where my mam and I had an experience recently and I wanted to know what had caused it.
As we headed down there, the light next to the area (room, vault, maybe? Not sure what to call it), kept switching on and off.
I made sure not to mention what had happened to me and my mam in there, just that something happened, so I found it pretty interesting when everybody with cameras all started taking photos of the same corner, which was also where started walking towards.
I find that place really oppressive and creepy, but I followed in towards the corner because in my head I was really freaking out that if something happened to her it was MY FAULT for not warning her.
She said that the corner had been part of the castle and it had been used to dump bodies, parts of bodies and in one case someone who was not quite dead yet. She also mentioned shadows on the walls.
What had happened to me and my mam the time we'd been down there was that we had decided to go in and have a look since the last time we had been there it had been scaffolded off, as soon as we stepped from the cobblestones to the flagstones we both felt very ill, there was an awful smell in there and I had seen a shadow person in the corner crouched down (these are the one paranormal thing that genuinely scare me, ever other one I have seen has been moving at an inhuman speed and they always set off my "fight or flight" reactions - usually flight - because NOPE.JPG I do not want to stick around and find out why they're trying to scare me KTHNXBAI), we'd actually ended up running to Black Gate to sit down until we felt safe (and then went to the Cathedral for a cuppa in the tea room because tea solves everything).
When we all moved out of that area the light went back on and did not go back off again the whole time we were at Black Gate (you can see the light from there).

Going into Black Gate felt an old Scottish man. She held mine and hands for a while to see if we would be able to feel him too. At first it just felt like was still holding my hands even though she wasn't any more but after that for a little while I felt like my heart was being a but weird.

Next we moved further into Black Gate, all of use except Marc walked straight past what I guess is a room, it dawned on me later on that in all the years I'd been going there, I don't think I'd ever walked into that part.
We walked around to part where you can look down into the lower rooms. While standing there my little finger and the finger next to it on my right hand started to feel really odd and I couldn't straighten them out. I felt that someone had an accident with those fingers, but it wasn't deliberate, it was an accident.
Marc also took a look in the downstairs room that you can get into (it's possible to get into one room, although it's a bit awkward, but the other one has no doors or windows. The ghost walk refer to it as "the oubliette" I know they've talked a load of rubbish about some of the other things in the area but I think they could be right about that one, it doesn't really feel very nice).
Next we moved around to the part I hadn't been in yet, not a lot happened in there other than Nikki being pushed down the stairs!
Then we went to the main part of the gate felt reminents from battles and then a man who just kept repeating that he didn't do it, at which point Nikki felt pains in her stomach (again I'll post evidence when I find it,. but I heard that a man killed his pregnant wife there back when Black Gate was turned into houses).

Next we went along to beside the Cathedral where felt someone who was angry that calmed down when they realised we weren't there to be disrespectful. She stopped next to the three stone coffins. This is EXACTLY where a few years ago someone breathed in my ear from behind me (despite there being nobody behind me) on a Ghost Walk.
Said Ghost Walk has a gallery full of photos of people lying in the coffins, which would explain why there are angry spirits.

I'm making my livejournal friends only from this point. The reason being is that I've used livejournal for a lot of years now and I've mostly discussed goings on in my life (popular topics being my big fat emo phase when I was younger, my half arsed attempt at being a scene queen #wtfwasIthinking? and then onto me getting all happy and shiz), and these days most of the people on my friendlist are people I really know with the odd cool person I've got talking with on one of the groups here or there.
Within the past few months I seem to have picked up a few lurkers here and there, ordinarily I wouldn't mind but screen caps of my personal bussiness ARE NOT FUN.
If you want to be my friend on LJ, leave me a comment here, that said just because you're a friend doesn't mean you'll see everything, I have filters all over the place and anybody found leaking things from my journal will be baaaaawleeted.
I have a public blog here:
Queens of the Wild Frontier
Feel free to cap that shiz if that's your thing, I don't talk about anything worth stalkerising over there anyway.
You can like Queens of the Wild Frontier on Failbork
Follow me on Twatter where I talk crap #withahashtaginfront
Boringspring where you can ask me anything...Or you know talk about fish...That seems pretty poplar at the moment...IT'S A TRAP!
and Fumblr for pretty pictures and experimental crap
Also I have a world of sext now, if you feel like writing me a song, or a dedication to my radiant beauty, go right ahead.
Current friends, I'm not leaving livejournal, just locking it so you can now all comment without wondering if your comment is gonna get screencapped and posted on sites of ill repute.
Oh btw, I'm not locking anything that is currently public so if you wanna go route through tales of my emo phase feel free.

Being called a disloyal friend.
As of yet I'm still waiting for an apology, so no, no forgiveness here.

I think the right to choose weather or not to have them is a right.
I don't think there should necessarily be restrictions per-say (I am very much against the way China's one child rule is enforced), but I do believe that having more than a couple should be discouraged.
We're heading towards overpopulation as it is, more people = less resources = more problems.
I think a lot of the encouraging people to breed needs to stop to.
It is scary how many people I used to go to school with have babies already (one of them is up to her third!), I'm 21!
A lot of people seem to be having babies for the welfare benefits, not because they want children, I was told on the phone to Student Loans once that if I didn't want my loan means tested on my parents wages then I should "just have a baby".
I find this absolutely insane.
Then there's the "babies as fashion accessories crowd", I have a friend who sometimes will not shut up about how she wnts a kid so she can dress it in Lolita clothes.
Excuse me, but a baby is not a doll, if you want to dress something up get a Barbie.
I think people should be educated more about the responsibilities of looking after children.
I also think there should be restrictions on IVF, that stuff costs the NHS a fortune, an Aunt of mine keeps having it done over and over again and it keeps failing, yet she won't adopt because she wants "a baby of her own" and she's always the first to criticise the NHS when they refuse to give people cancer treatments because they can't afford them.
Sorry I appear to have gone off on a tangent.

I'd like to have been there when Boudicca fought off the Romans (the time she won), she's one of my heroes.

A meeting of the Hellfire club to see if my theory about them not being the Satanic nutcases they were reported to be (I often suspect they were actually the Historical equivalent of Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin etc, and just spread loads of crazy rumours about themselves to shock people)

Greyfriar's Kirkyard with Mary Shelly when she started writing Frankenstein's Monster , mostly because I want to know where she sat.

Any point in Ancient Sarmatian history. Sarmatian women were supposedly the inspiration for the Amazons (a LOT of tombs of their woman have been found full of weapons and armour) , I absolutely fell in love with the idea of the Amazons when I was around 7-8 and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys was on TV. An entire race of women that can do stuff other than making dinner? Awesome!

On the beach when Queen Elizabeth 1st made her famous speech "I may have the body of a woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a man". Hopefully she didn't mean her dad's stomach... Or come to think of it his heart, I mean that couldn't have been in very good health now could it?

Hmmmm

People have tried and failed to hurt me on the internet. Mostly it seems to be people that are looking for revenge because I spotted something wrong with what they were doing (I try to be as polite as possible when this happens, but people keep on taking it the wrong way).
Last week someone who clearly skim read my post on [livejournal.com profile] sew_loli  tried to troll me via 4chan.
They seemed to think I thought a bow I made was perfect and people would want to buy t, when in actual fact the point of my post was that it was the first bow I'd made, I knew things had gone wrong and I was looking for advice on how to not make them go wrong in future, and I briefly mentioned that when I worked out the problems I planned on making some to sell.
Someone pointed out this in the thread and then it devolved into posting photos of e just after my charity head shave complete with "EWWWW UGLY!" comments.
Children's playground much?
I don't find myself hideous and clearly neither does my boyfriend, these are the only two opinions on my face I really care about as like the saying goes "beauty is only skin deep".
A while back something similar happened when I posted some photos from Gay Pride to the internet, someone started a "OMG SHE'S SO UGLY" anonymous thread. Funny thing is they used quite a nice photo instead of the one I took especially for them:


In closing until people grow some balls and tell me things to my face instead of hiding behind internet anonymity they don't really bother me.

Sleeping Beauty: If you sleep a lot love will find you.

Snow White: Step Mothers are evil and will try to kill you. Eat what you like because even if you die some Necro will find you.

The Little Mermaid: If he doesn't like you for who you are, change everything about yourself. Liars always prosper.

Cinderella: Step Mothers are Evil, as are Step Sisters. The guy won't notice you if you're poor, you need more bling. It is perfectly acceptable to accept gifts from elderly relatives you've never met before if it gets the guy to notice you. Liars always prosper.

Beauty and the Beast: Stockholm Syndrome.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame: No matter how good a person you are, if you have a disability the person you love will go for the pretty guy instead.

Aladdin: The girl won't notice you if you're poor, you need more bling. Liars always prosper.

The Sword in the Stone: If you ever want to do anything other than sit around waiting for love you have to be a guy.

Also updated my interests because a kindly anon pointed out it's been five years since I last did it.

WOW!

Me

My word would be "me" because I am nothing less and nothing more than me, and if you can't accept that, well frankly you suck.

Wheeeeeeeeeeee!
I had such a great time :D
So hard to pick who was the best band of the whole weekend because they were all awesome (well except Zeraphim who were boring as hell, but hey I got to rest my feet while they were on), but at a push I would probably say Placebo, even though they played a really weird set (which isn't a complaint by the way, they played quite a lot of the Meds album, and I love that album).
Some general observations on Germany:

It's very clean (yes I did keep thinking "Wow it's so clean!" and then not vocalising it for fear of sounding like Russian Gary the other week).

They know how to feed the more vegetabley inclined among us.
We ate in a Turkish place in Hildeshiem (sp?) on the first night after the epic walk of doom, and I had this absolutely GIANT plate of Falafel, salad ad Cous Cous. I thought that would be the only decent meal I'd get. WOAH NO! The hotel breakfasts were the absolute best hotel breakfasts ever. Salads and bready things as far as the eye could see!
As for the festival itself, I had choice, OMG CHOICE!
Ok, I'll stop talking about food now...

Less crazy drunks, I think the whole festival I counted three crazy drunks, one during The Sisters of Mercy who tried to put his hand up my skirt, (and presumably did the same thing to the girl next to me because we both punched him in the crotch at the exact same time whilst giving each other the universal look of "who the fuck s this wanker?"), one being supported by his mates after as everybody was leaving after the Sisters (he wasn't really bothering people per say, just couldn't find his feet and kept walking into people), and some guy that tried to push his way to the font during Placebo and then found himself even further back because some woman (who kind of reassembled Jabba the Hutt in eyeliner), pushed him back and sent him flying.

Drivers actually use their indicators!
As a pedestrian, I love this :)

Anyways enough waffle.
I likely givea full band run down at some point (probably after I get my photos off my camera).

Quotes from last night's gig :)

Me: There's some random jam in the fridge, don't eat that, it seems to have been there since forever.
Andy and Trevor: What?
Joe: She said there's some random jam in the fridge and we shouldn't eat it.
Andy: I thought she said There's a random German girl in the fridge
Trevor: So did I!

"You need sneakers!"- Trevor

(In response to the Unicorn Card)
Joe: Gnarly!
Trevor: Awesome!

(in response to me bringing a giant bag of mini chocolate bars into the dressing room)
All: YAY!
(all dive at the table kind of like those sharks you see on the Discovery channel when someone lowers a piece of meat into the tank)

Gary (Dismantled) : This is a very beautiful city, it's so clean!
Me: 0_o

Max (tour manager): HEHEHE!

Kev (holding what looks like a tooth pick): Well this was a drumstick!

Me (holding the other half of the drumstick, Tia had claimed the top half): So now we have half a drumstick each, I feel like we've entered into some kind of secret pact, the sisterhood of the drumstick, we're like blood brothers now!
Tia: DRUM SISTERS!
Me: Yes that's much better!

Funnily enough Orlando from Orlando: A Biography by Virginia Wolf (that's the same Orlando that turns up in The  League of  Extraordinary Gentlemen by Alan Moore).
Why?
I quite like the idea of being able to live forever (although I suppose that doesn't really apply if it's just for a month) go adventuring and swap gender at will.
