Your Midweek Update for 08/18/21

The world is quite literally on fire and all I want to do is add to it. I’ve always known I was some agent of chaos – if you’ve been following me for even a short amount of time, you must know this about me – but I’ve never wanted to just burn it all down.

That’s a lie. When Sandra died, I wanted to set fire to something and just step inside. But this isn’t the same feeling. This is restlessness and frustration and exhaustion. I’m tired all the time and my limbs feel heavy. The smoke from the wild fires is choking me and I can’t sleep anymore. I can’t step outside without hearing devastating news about some place in the world.

And I want to join in. I want to light a match, I want to add to the carnage, I want to feel something other than hopelessness at the state we’re in. When I kill, it’s for me. Sometimes, it’s for the betterment of society, but mostly it’s for my own pleasure. I do enjoy it. I smile remembering the feelings of bones cracking under my touch. I get wet seeing the terror in a man’s eyes when he finally realizes he is going to die. I am soothed by the sound of squelching blood as I remove my knife from an un-beating heart.

I fucking love murder (again, you should have figured this out by now). But this feeling inside? It’s not excitement when I see a woman walking alone at night. It’s fear. Fear that everything I do to bring myself pleasure is being swallowed up by the world burning itself. No one cares that one person died today because a thousand more are dead. We’re tearing each other apart and when everyone is killing and dying and burning, then I become obsolete.

I’m tired of hearing about so much devastation, I’m tired of breathing in literal ashes, I’m tired of everyone destroying each other. You’re doing it wrong and you’re taking away my job and I’m just tired, okay? There’s so much going on, I can’t feel anything. But the one time I could always feel something was when I had a knife in my hand but now it just sort of feels pointless.

Why murder you now? You’ll probably be dead tomorrow anyways.

My point is: I wish everyone would go back to the way things were so that I can be a monster instead of just another forgotten murderer.

My point is: I’m tired.

As always, dear readers,

Stay Safe

Your Midweek Update for 08/11/21

Here’s my thing with feminism.

Oh god, I just lost ten followers with that sentence alone. Hear me out, please.

I grew up with the ramifications of the 70s serial killer era. When people left their doors unlocked and it was totally normal to hitchhike across the country in an unmarked white van. Let’s be real: there’s never been a point in history where it was “safe” to be a woman alone at night but in the 60s and 70s, it was more commonplace to walk the streets without your keys tucked between your knuckles.

Then everyone was murdered and enough people cared that everyone’s daily habits changed. Doors were locked, the manufacturers of pepper spray became trillionaires, and it was still a nightmare for women, but at least serial killers had to get more creative.

But that’s all it was. People didn’t stop killing each other, they just changed their tactics. All the tricks women do to keep themselves safe when their alone: it’s a challenge, not a deterrent. If you ever feel like you’re safe, you’re in more danger than ever. It’s safety theatre – like the TSA. If you go through the motions, you can pretend you’re safe but the truth is: the bomb was never in your shoes to begin with.

This is all aimed at women because, well, statistically they’re more likely to be attacked because the world is a terrible, terrible place. But that’s why I enjoy going after men. I can use the same tactics that have been used on women for decades and men are too na├»ve to believe they can be victims. The truth is: everyone could be a victim. No one is safe, only a portion of the population were raised to believe that, while the others were told… nothing. It makes them easy targets.

I know I should want to change that. Equity means teaching mean to be safe and to not attack women because they think they can get away with it (which they likely can). Equality means treating my victims equally, but you just can’t use the same tactics. I can’t lure a woman into the back alley of a club with the promise of too-drunk-to-consent sex. I can’t ask a man to pretend to be a friend and walk me to my car because some creepy guy has been following me. Obviously, there are exceptions because everyone has the capacity to be awful. It’s just not the same.

I should want to change the culture. I should want to shy away from utilizing stereotypes to get what I want. It’s just that… well… the stereotypes work to my advantage. I like to think that these men have it coming if they genuinely believe that I don’t notice them slipping something into my drink. And some of them might just want to walk me to my car but I know part of the reason why these nice men want to do that, is because I’m a woman.

Of course, I want to see a change in our culture. I would love to not get written up for having messy hair one of the days I go in to work while my DAUGHTER IS MISSING. At the same time: being able to use the stereotypes to my advantage makes my job so much easier.

But, like the TSA, I just have to adapt with the times and find new ways to take advantage of people’s perceived safety. It is a challenge – of course it is – but, like my serial killer forefathers, I will change.

I will face the challenge head-on.

As always, dear readers,

Stay Safe

HELL’S CURSE BY EVE NEWTON EXCERPT:

I blink and somehow, I’m back in the middle of the warehouse. “What the fuck?” I yell, shoving my hand into my hair.

I hear the guys burst through the doors behind me. “Guess, you reached the edge of the labyrinth,” Sebastian remarks.

“Grrr,” I snarl.

“Okay, easy tiger,” he says, putting his hands up. “At least we know the perimeter and that this is the center, which means it’s small.”

“And?” I snap.

He bites his lip. I can’t help but think how sexy it makes him look. “Oh no,” I groan and turn from him. All of them. My hands are shaking, my heart is pounding, my skin has a sheen of sweat on it and my breath is coming in shallow pants. I know what I need but I can’t get it. I can’t Shift. I’m stuck in this human female form that needs what was promised to me not all that long ago with the guy who mysteriously died between my legs.

“GeeGee?” Ethan asks, coming closer.

“Stop,” I say, holding my hand up. “Don’t come any closer.”

He stops dead.

“You’re affecting her,” Sebastian murmurs. “Move away.”

“She’s immune,” Ethan mutters.

“Not anymore, not without her powers. If she can’t Shift, the anxiety of the situation is aggravating the Hellhound that is still inside her with no way for release. Am I right, little one?”

“Mm,” I moan, doubling over as pangs shoot through my body, hurting me.

Your Midweek Update for 08/04/21

How the fuck is it already August?

This year has just flown by and I really am not enjoying my time. God, so much has happened in the last seven months, but I don’t think I could name a single thing.

Oh wait, my daughter got kidnapped by her birth mother, and my sister killed her and is now on the run. Right. Totally forgot about that.

That isn’t sarcasm, by the way. In this moment, I genuinely forgot that happened. Supposedly bad short-term memory is tied to poor sleep which… I’ve got tons of that. Or maybe it’s just that so many things happen in my life and they all blur together. The passage of time is not even and it’s very annoying. For example, this pandemic has not been going on for eighteen months. It’s been eighteen years and I know longer remember what my life was like without a mask on.

On the upside, I only have to worry about obscuring half of my face on security cameras – and if I wear sunglasses or a hat, I can do whatever the hell I want.

At least that’s the mentality I’ve taken with the mask restrictions. I don’t know that it’s laid out there in the bylaws that so long as I where a mask, I can sever someone’s carotid artery by giving them a papercut and slowly opening the wound.

But it doesn’t say I can’t do that so I’m taking it as permission.

I don’t know how to explain it, by papercuts make me so squeamish. I felt so bad for that person (I really need to use more inclusive language and not assume the gender of my victims. I promise, I’m working on it). They’re just so uncomfortable. I think I once tortured someone by giving them papercuts between their toes. I almost got nauseous.

But cleaning out the hot, rotted storage unit filled with actual vomit and decaying flesh was no problem for me. Explain that.

The human body will forever astound me. If you think about it, I’m really just a hands-on scientist. Who doesn’t want the attention for my work. And doesn’t really care about human beings. And takes a significant amount of pleasure in my work – enough to call myself an expert despite a lack of peer review.

So exactly like a scientist.
