citrineowlicorn asked: The Archipelago website looks really nice \o/
Thanks! I’m super psyched about it. Honestly, I should have moved ages ago, but one of my big weaknesses is just ignoring minor problems until they turn into huge problems that can NO LONGER BE IGNORED, such as the old website just not allowing me to update anymore through sheer oldness.
I wanted to make a pair of music mixes involving romance, one about good boys/girls who are actually bad and one about bad boys/girls who are actually good. These are my first mixes that aren’t based on specific characters or a specific fandom and I got really into designing the ‘covers’ for the mixes, so I wanted to post them separately.
I’ll be posting the mixes themselves later, probably after I finish and upload the last Steven Universe mix (Garnet).

Archipelago has officially moved to it’s new home at SmackJeeves! I’m very happy with the new site, hopefully it should make for much easier reading for you guys. Thank you so much for being patient as Archipelago went through some growing pains.
Years and years ago, there was a production of The Tempest, out of doors, at an Oxford college on a lawn, which was the stage, and the lawn went back towards the lake in the grounds of the college, and the play began in natural light. But as it developed, and as it became time for Ariel to say his farewell to the world of The Tempest, the evening had started to close in and there was some artificial lighting coming on. And as Ariel uttered his last speech, he turned and he ran across the grass, and he got to the edge of the lake and he just kept running across the top of the water — the producer having thoughtfully provided a kind of walkway an inch beneath the water. And you could see and you could hear the plish, plash as he ran away from you across the top of the lake, until the gloom enveloped him and he disappeared from your view.
And as he did so, from the further shore, a firework rocket was ignited, and it went whoosh into the air, and high up there it burst into lots of sparks, and all the sparks went out, and he had gone.
When you look up the stage directions, it says, ‘Exit Ariel.’
