Once upon a time, there was a femme transboy named Lukaiel. He was very insecure, artistic, imaginative and lived in a very un-magical place called Kansas. Someone he once trusted, an evil, ugly witch cast a spell and manipulated the boy into having a romance with razor blades, fire, and self-destruction, and made him hate every inch of himself.
But this all changed when he met his knight in shining armor, Jason. Jason broke the spell with an enchantment called "love". Jason made Lukaiel's grey world flush with color. Along with friends of every kind, Jason brought Lukaiel to a vision of self-love and acceptance for everyone, no matter how different. Lukaiel became a prince.
But the prince is in distress-- his temptation to destroy himself, his doubts, his inner demons. But he, with the hope of loved ones, battles these off even when it appears he is losing the war. He will always find himself victorious with the wonderful people he grew to love on his side.
The prince finds joy in writing, drawing, acting, costuming, designing fashion, listening to music, making odd crafts and jewelry, and reading/watching things. Sometimes he finds himself among faeries, who he believes and finds his faith and ability to cast magic in. Other times, he appears as a fallen angel, a tragic hero. But most times, he's just a submissive and clumsy cat boy who wishes for affection and cuddles. His anxiety disorder cripples him, takes him away from his desire to be around people, and though he values his alone time, he craves company.

Though his life is not spent in a castle, he continues on and loves life. This is his story of romance, acceptance, and finding the beauty in everything.

stronger than you.

I guess I should probably first state that I feel a lot better than I did from my last post. ;^;

I'm still kind of struggling with depression, and body image stuff. My body has been ripping me to shreds lately, whether it be insecurity or pain.
I've been upset about my weight, I just feel so.... fat. And there's nothing wrong with being fat in my book, I think if you're confident in your body, you should own it! But my thighs are covered in cellulite and my arms are flabby and my stomach is huge and bloated. I guess I wouldn't mind being bigger if I were chubby-cute >< I've been trying to drive myself away from relapsing into my eating disorder, but it's so hard.
Also I've been on my period for like.... two weeks now?? Ugh. It's been the worst. As soon as I can, I'm getting on birth control but right now we have no health insurance again. x.x
I'm slowly starting to feel excitement for things again. I want to blame my depression on my period, but I know that hormones don't cause such extreme mood swings.

Oh, I finally decided on a new name for myself a little while ago, and I love it.

Lukaiel Leigh Vaughn Valentine.
(pronounced loo-ky-ehl) But I still want to go by Kai or Ky-Ky, but I also like Lulu. c: I think it's rather androgynous sounding, and I created it :D

Not much else is happening lately. Getting ready for the renfaire next month, and just enjoying my boyfriend and brother being on spring break.
I've been thinking about cosmetology school lately. I hate to admit it, but maybe I should do it. People have always said I should go, but I always denied it. But they're right-- I never tire of doing hair and makeup and stuff. And I think some cosmetology schools even teach aroma and massage therapy. So I'm thinking of looking into it.... really nervous though.
If I don't get into schooling, I definitely need a job. I'm tired of being a waste of space.

Oh, I'm currently working my hair on a journey to obtain platinum color. I'm a ginger right now, but I'll be bleaching it again on Tuesday. I'm working on my appearance again. I'm going to start wearing what I want to wear!~ Cute dresses and stockings and shorts and stuff. x3

I've been reading Game of Thrones lately. I'm halfway through the first book. In the TV series, Tyrion is definitely my favorite but I think Dany's my favorite in the book.

I'm also currently obsessing over Steven Universe. Oh my goodness. These last few episodes have been so amazing. I think it's climbing it's way to being a top favoritie cartoon of mine, because just. Wow. Like all the characters are so diverse and real and interesting. And none of the episodes feel "unnecessary", they all feel important to the plot or characters. The emotions the characters display, and the symbolism draws me in so much. I'm not really into like, aliens, but I love this show. omg.

I think Jason will finally be coming over soon, which will be so nice. He's been so patient and supportive, I know I ramble about how lovely he is a lot, but it's still new to me, having a support system.

I still haven't been able to write. I'm feeling insecure about that, but maybe it'll change if I try new stuff.

Anyway, I'm currently trying to decide whether to stay up all night, or go to bed. Its like 4am, oops. And I have my step dad's family visiting here and they like to wake up early @.@

So I'll probably post some art tomorrow. Hope everyone is having a nice week/end.

-Prince Lukaiel.

trigger warning.

I feel like giving up on everything.

I don't understand what happened to me. I was over-the-moon happy. I was so excited to not be sick and being able to see my boyfriend and friends more often, and I wanted to go out everywhere and be carefree.

But recently I have felt so empty. I don't get excited over anything. I'm just kind of... here.

My only other emotion is hopelessness. All I do now is breaking down and crying my eyes out and arguing with Jason.
We argue over my self-hatred and how I feel I'm ruining his life. He swears I'm not. But I feel he's going to slip away from me and into the arms of someone better. Constantly arguing with him about this probably doesn't make him want to stay. I make him feel bad because he can't help me much.
I hate this. I just want him to be happy. I don't deserve him.

But my relationship isn't to blame for this. I wish I knew the cause of this but I just don't.

And my body disgusts me to no end. I just don't want to be fat anymore. I don't want to be ugly anymore.

All I've wanted to do lately is lay in bed and cry and fucking cut and binge-eat and purge. I just want to die, honestly. I haven't felt this way in so long.

And I feel guilty for feeling this way. I should be happy, I should have gotten over my depression long ago. I should be better. I'm not allowed to be this sad.
I'm supposed to be upbeat and happy. I have everything I want. Why am I so selfish.

I need help, but I have a terrible fear of therapists... They're too intimidating and they make me feel like a freak. They make me feel like everyone gave up on me. Probably because of previous sessions and because of my family threatening to send me to mental hospitals and because of Ashley telling me she would leave me if I didn't see a therapist because she didn't want to deal with me anymore.

I don't want medication, I don't want therapy. But if I don't get these things, everyone will leave me just like Ashley did. I don't even know if I blame her anymore, honestly.

I'm so sorry.

-Kai.

fly me to the moon.

I keep losing motivation to write an update here >< I swear it will be a regular thing one day.

Everything is actually going pretty well for me lately. I haven't been getting sick! And I've been socializing with my friends more c:

My boyfriend came over and spent the night with me on Valentine's Day. x3

We watched Corpse Bride and gave eachother gifts and walked around the mall. It was really awesome to be near him again, and he can now come over to my house more regularly.
(nsfw warning)
So when my parents went to bed, we had a pretty great makeout session >///< We turned off the lights in my room, and turned on some electronic candles and the scentsy thing he gave me. (which has a scent that smells like him. omg) it was a really romantic atmosphere.
He took off my clothes, leaving me in just panties, which is a first for us /)////( I took off his pants so that was fun. I fumbled a lot but I did it x'D
Anyway, long story short, we grinded, found out that nipple stuff drives me insane in a good way, had him pin me down to my bed by my forearms above my head and cover me in hickies, and we both indulged eachother in some fetish stuff, he tried giving me oral too. o////o
We both really embraced our roles as me being submissive and him being dominant. Like we were both more confident in acting out what we like. It was just. Damn.

But yeah o; He's probably going to come over again next weekend. We're going to chill and do some art and just relax. I can't wait. <3

Like I said earlier, I've been talking to my two best friends again. Carli and Tah-Tah.

Carli is a senior at my old school now, so she's working on senior project. She's writing and putting on a one-act play, called Dinner Party. So I'm basically her mentor in this, and I'm the co-director for the play. It's going well so far I think. I meet up with her at least once a week to work on it with her.
Tah-Tah and I text a decent amount now. She's in college, working on getting in shape. She's been having some issues with an eating disorder. But I'm trying tp help her through it, having been through it myself before.

I went to spend some time with my dad's family this weekend.
It kinda went to hell after a while though. Because my dad went out drinking with Tina and some things went down because of my dad's abusive friend with benefits. Then my dad went missing for five hours after midnight, and no one had an idea where he went. We were terrified because it was snowing out and he was drunk and in bad mental and physical condition. But we found him, he fell asleep in a theatre and his phone had died. Everything is okay now, thankfully.

I also had a rough night last night over stupid stuff but I'm alright now. Though I somehow hurt my shoulder really bad. It hurts to move x.x

I've been drawing a lot lately though c: I want to write but.... ugh, I just never do.

Also, I've been working on choosing another name for myself to go by. I do love my current name, Kyle Pierce, but my ex best friend chose the name for me like four years ago and I just want something that's entirely my own. I'm thinking of something androgynous or a feminine boy name. I may or may not keep it a 'K' name, I dunno. But I'm still looking for names so I've yet to decide.

Anyway, I'm going to submit some art in a moment o:

Hope everyone is having a nice week <3

Posty post post.

So I've been beyond stressed lately. Not fun, at all.

Uh. Well I guess it started like last week. I got sick at my grandparents' house and this just set off a whole debate. My mom and stepdad got into a huge argument with my grandparents. Over me. About what to do with me 
I felt like such a burden on everyone. I still feel that way. I feel so terrible that I stress everyone out, which is leading to more insecurity about that throughout the week.

So that night, my mom took me to the hospital because we were all fed up with this sickness. They didn't do much, really. Just took my blood and ran tests and put me on an IV thing for a few hours. We were there until 4am.
The next day, I had a doctor's appointment. My doctor put me on some medication for my sickness and for my diabetes. If these things don't work, I'll be sent to a specialist.
So far, the medicine seems to be helping. I still have a lot of stomach discomfort, but I haven't gotten sick since being on the medication. So that's good.
I've been sort of dieting since then as well. And I have a cold since being at the hospital. So irritating.

Jason and I have been arguing a lot lately. It's really my fault though. Because of my insecurities and anxiety causing me to lash out at him. It's been really difficult for both of us. We're okay though because we do talk things out, but I wish I would stop creating problems.

My mom and boyfriend are still wanting me to get on anxiety medication. I still don't want to do it. I still get upset thinking about it because I don't want people to like me better when on medication. It really hurts me to think about. But I might do it. I don't know.

I bit all my nails off last week as well. @.@ I need some sort of fidget toy. I tried putting fake nails on but they just bothered me so much. They came off in the shower anyway lol.

I haven't drawn in a while, I just got back into it today. It's been weird.

Anyway. Things are going to be okay but right now I'm just beyond stressed out about everything.

Hope everyone has a good week. I'll post a happier post soon, I swear.

Hello~ hope everyone has been doing well lately. c:

Okay, so I haven't updated here in like forever. I'll try to catch you all up on what's been going on.

My health still hasn't gotten any better. The medication I was given for my diabetes made my symptoms unbearable, but my parents hadn't been able to get me back to the doctor for a while because of my stepdad getting fired from his job. However, he has a new job and we have insurance again, so I should be going back in February.
I can't say that I've been doing well with dieting or anything like that, simply because I'm waiting to get a different prescription. Though I've been trying to go on walks more frequently.

Oh, but I finally have been working on no longer biting my nails. :D I haven't bitten them in a week. I'm shocked that I haven't caved yet. But I'm doing it. I'm really excited to have longer, pretty nails.
(before i stopped biting them)

(after a week)

I know they still aren't great, but it's progress. This is actually the longest I've ever had my nails.

I've been working on changing my appearance. I've needed an all-over change. I'm working on changing up my hair and makeup. I don't have the money to buy clothes right now but I'm making progress.
I cut my hair really short and lightened the color a bit yesterday. It looks nice, but my goal color is platinum lol, so I'll be bleaching it again in about a week.

I think my mental health is improving a bit. I haven't gotten really upset in a while. The worst thing that happened was my lowering self-esteem a little while ago. I was also stressing because I need to get a job as soon as I get healthy enough again. And my boyfriend was really busy with school and friends so I felt too guilty or bothersome to talk to him about it, which is usually how I face my issues. So I was suppressing a lot of worries and I couldn't talk about them. I ended having some really bad dreams, which shook me up a lot.
But all is well now! I expressed my concerns to Jason and we talked it out. We always talk things out and it helps so much. I'm so happy to be in such a healthy, fun relationship.

I've been thinking a lot about spirituality stuff lately. Especially since having bad dreams and doubts about myself. I definetely want to start making charms, dream catchers, jewelry and candles and lotions and stuff for myself and friends and to sell in my shop if I ever get the supplies. I've been reading about different gemstones and crystals and scents and stuff. I think these things would really put my mind at ease and reassure me when I'm stressed.

I've been having spring fever like crazy. I want it to be nice outside so I can go on walks and stuff. Being cramped in my house because of sickness definetely doesn't help. But yesterday my mom and I went to the zoo and had a lot of fun. I hadn't been to the zoo in.... years. It was just so nice to get outside. This coming from me; someone who loves cold weather and staying inside more than anything. xD

I've wanted to write, but I just... don't. @.@ I don't even know.

Anyway, I think that's all that's going on for now. But I'll try to update here more often. owo

Have a lovely day, guys.
