Love Hurts

As the day of the Saint rolled closer and closer, love was in the air. Valentine had never set foot here, few would by choice. Few, but some. The darker alleyways are sometimes the best places for some lovers to meet, after all, who would look to find them both there?

1 The demon and the angel had met there once by chance, many years before. The alleyway had grown no cleaner over time, though at least the body of the one whose soul each had come to claim that fateful night had gone. Food no doubt for the rats which scurried ceaselessly between crates and trashcans. Love like this was not something that could be explained, too close to hate as it was. They should loathe each other, and certainly, each felt nothing but repulsion for all the other stood for. Despite all of this, love was what it was.
Whenever good and evil came together, there was bound to be violence. Angels would do all they could to be good and fair, and Demons likewise to be destructive and evil. Violent passion drew them back there each time, despite the inevitable pain that would follow.  Far from these opposites of feeling, emotion and nature cancelling each other out to some even keel, sparks would fly, and blood would flow.
Each time they met, there would be love. At each meeting; pain. The cycle continuing on and on throughout the ages.  As they loved each other, the Angel would give up his heart, and the Demon, she would eat it...

Oh Valentines... Death as love. How fitting for these latest releases!
Shown above, we have +REDRUM+ Love Thief - Stolen Heart - which is a two person set, the prize at +REDRUM+ in the current Tainted Love Hunt (which when I get round to hunting out all the prizes, there should be another post about).  Its L$1 until the end of the month, and comprises in its two sets - which are transferable for you and your love - blood for the arms, blood for the face, a chest wound, sticky out tongues, and a heart to bite on! You can find all the details about the ultimate anti-twee hunt here...
Here is also the latest release from S U G A R! That's right, after so many of us crying, complaining and whinging because she wanted to have an enjoyable life, she came back! *grins*  This is a reload of perhaps my all time favourite skin - Cry My Heart Out - and it's a Group Gift!  There are five skintones, each with standard, with teeth, and a total of three cleavage options. If you were lucky enough to get the previous Cry My Heart Out skin - you might just love this lipglossey do-over!
