Crescent Moon and Crescent Venus
Spooky clouds and shadowy contrails divide this image of our moon at extreme crescent, and Venus showing the same cookie-like shape.
Why does Venus show phases? It orbits the sun, same as any of us. This image explains it well (via Wikipedia):

According to the legend, Martim Moniz was a knight participating in the Christian invasion force, led by king Afonso I of Portugal, in the Siege of Lisbon, during the Reconquista. At one point in the siege of São Jorge Castle, he saw the Moors closing the castle doors. He led an attack on the doors, and sacrificed himself by lodging himself in the doorway, preventing the defenders from fully closing the door.
This heroic act allowed time for his fellow soldiers to arrive and secure the door, leading to the eventual capture of the castle.
For those curious, Vintage Goth (vintagegoth.com) carries a lot of corsets similar to these. I’m not sure if some of them might actually be from VG, but check them out and sign up for emails! They frequently have sales and have really good services!
I need them all
I want all of them. I would feel beautiful and magnificent and finally look like the damned queen that I am.
I can’t decide which one I want.
