Why did you choose to appear as if you're wearing a suit and tie? (if you picked your appearance, I mean)

              picture this— you’re a child, strong enough to leave your
              mother’s side and  W I S E  enough to discard her lies

                             ’ there are no such things as monsters—
                                                  —the boogeyman is not real—
                                                             —look, there is nobody in the corner,
                                                 will you finally go to sleep? mommy is very tired. ‘ 

                         but you know better, don’t you? you have only caught glimpses of
                         long limbs shifting in the darkness, always present at your bedside, 
                         waiting for the moment in which your    panic    reaches a CRITICAL
                         point, causing your tiny&tired body to burst like a sick cell. whatever
                         it is that’s watching you sleep— it’s patient. very patient. and you just
                         want it to GO AWAY.

                                you’ve had enough ( one day you realize you are being watched
                                as you play outside and this time nobody is around to hold your
                                hand, nobody will calm down your racing heartbeat with sweet,
                                reassuring  L I E S )— you run. to the forest, following a path that
                                slowly dissipates into nothing.   lost.   you’re lost, your blind dash
                                has lead you nowhere, YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE YOU ARE!!
                                away from home, away from mom and dad, you’re lost and NOT
                                SAFE— and then you see him.

                              your daddy wears a suit sometimes, doesn’t he? 

                                                    you run, a relieved smile reflects in your tears.
                                                                    ( you run and you never return )

So far I’ve just been doing ficlets for samjessweek, but today’s theme is “hunting,” and I’ve got some meta I’d like to throw out there as well, specifically on the topic of why it is perfectly possible for Sam and Jess to have a healthy relationship without her knowing about hunting.

Basically, and I don’t know how popular it is just that it’s out there, there’s this notion that Sam/Jess was inherently unhealthy because he didn’t tell her about hunting.

Bullshit.

Things Sam could have told Jess that would convey important truths about his life without ever getting into the “oh btw monsters are totally real” part of it:

  • his mom died in a fire when he was a baby
  • they moved around constantly for his dad’s job
  • they didn’t have a lot of money
  • he never felt like he fit in and fought with his dad a lot about the way they lived
  • he was really close to his brother because he wasn’t really able to make friends with the way they lived

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE.

Sam didn’t even have to go into that much detail if he didn’t want to. Once they got to know each other enough that it would be natural to maybe share about their childhoods, a perfectly valid (and likely, in my opinion) thing for Sam to say would be “Yeah, I really don’t want to talk about it, and I’m not sure I ever will. I get it if that’s not OK with you and you need to bail, but that’s just kinda how it is.”

And I think Jess would have accepted that because she was into Sam and respected him and saw what a good person he was so as far as she was concerned his past was his business, and then been delighted whenever Sam did share any tidbits with her, which I like to think he’d started to do by the pilot. She knew he had a brother named Dean, and I like to think he told her about soccer, and being a mathlete, and being in Our Town and doing tech for Oklahoma! and whatever other scraps of normality he was able to find at various points in his life.

Now, people like to argue that Sam was putting Jess in danger by not telling her about monsters. But here’s the thing: at that point in his life, Sam didn’t know that. He didn’t know that demons were watching him and had a plan for him. His knowledge of the hunting world, of monsters, was that they popped up randomly, and hunters dealt with them. He didn’t know that he had to worry about being followed and watched and manipulated by the supernatural. Sam can’t be expected to protect Jess from a danger he didn’t know existed.

tl;dr: Sam and Jess were adorable and precious and super in love and had a happy healthy relationship and the fact that it ended with her dead will always always hurt me so thank goodness for fanfiction.

Transformation Not Tuesday level 300 (my baby hospital bracelet in my hand today.)😛

In a society where the werewolves have been enslaved by the humans, Derek has had enough owners to know who the real monsters are. He’s also had enough to know not to trust a word out of Stiles’ mouth, no matter how nice an act he puts on.

The only thing that’s kept Derek going for all these years is guilt. Now, though, he has a mission that might just allow him to set some of this right…

If only he can get away from Stiles.

——-

In which Derek’s been abused all his life, Stiles just wants to show him he’s not like his past owners, and they’ve both got a plan. The only question is, whose is more flawed?

Next chapter of my sterek au is up guys!

The Real Monsters are reborn! 

Upon getting so much attention for my previous designs, I wanted to redesign the monsters and develop the concept a little more. You’ll notice most of the monsters have subtle alterations and the descriptions have been changed to better reflect my original concepts.

Disclaimer: The artwork is not at all intended to make light of these conditions but instead is intended to give these intangible mental illnesses some substance and make them appear more managable as physical entities.
