With the Hale Pack stronger than ever and with Beacon Hills protected from those that want to break their bond, it feels only right to get back to normal, right? When the oblivious Alpha-mate Stiles Stilinski’s life is threatened by a simple ‘accident’, the Alpha takes a different approach to take what rightfully belongs to him. While Stiles feels like his friends are hiding something from him, he wonders whether he should try and investigate or just live and let live.
“Wolves without an emissary are naturally turbulent because their instincts are wild. Subconsciously, you’ve been balancing them, but you aren’t tied to the pack so you aren’t getting a balance in return.” “So, they’re bleeding me dry. Always knew they were parasites.” Stiles smiled dryly. “You’ll need to attach yourself to an alpha soon. There are risks for an unbalanced druid.” “Like?” “Well, in-balance may show itself in several ways. It’s a disruption in nature, so nature will twist and alter in an attempt to right itself.” “What does that mean?” Stiles was getting anxious. The vet wa avoiding giving direct answers and that never meant anything good. “You’re magic is heavily entwined with your will, and your will is parallel to your mind.” “I’ll go insane.”
You see where this may be headed, but if not let me sum it up a but better - Lack of communication is killer, especially when feeling are involved. So, let’s throw our emotionally constipated favs into a situation where they have to pretend to be what that truly want to be anyways but are too big of dorks to say anything about it. Enjoy!
i really like sand. my computer is even named sand. really. (no, that’s definitely not a rise against reference what are you talking about)
anyways, here’s the only useful Wolves review you’ll find:
Wolves: no mentions 0/10
House On Fire:no mentions 0/10
The Violence:mentions “rocks” in the very first verse (and everyone knows sand is just very small rocks). unfortunately never dives deep into the subject. 3/10
Welcome To The Breakdown: no mentions 0/10
Far From Perfect:Makes a metaphor involving glass (which is, of course, just hot sand!!) and it’s an electrifying moment. 5/10
Bullshit: broaches the subject of sand! in the very first verse! a thrilling line that stays with you for the whole song 9/10
Politics Of Love:no mentions 0/10
Parts Per Million:the song builds up to a heart-stopping section two minutes in, which mentions sand not once but twice, even going as far to discuss hourglasses as well, and gives lyrical throwbacks to Rumors of my Demise. Incredible and inspiring 10/10
Mourning In Amerika:no mentions 0/10
How Many Walls:no mentions 0/10
Miracle: does not mention sand. mentions “broken clocks” which, according to Parts Per Million, could be broken hourglasses full of sand, but it’s a disappointing stretch. 1/10
Megaphone:no mentions 0/10
Broadcast[Signal]Frequency:Another glass mention right off the bat! a strong line 5/10
Arya Meme: (10/10) Scenes ↳ Wolves. Arya went cold. Robb’s men, and my father’s. She felt drawn toward the cages. The bars allowed so little room that prisoners could neither sit nor turn; they stood naked, exposed to sun and wind and rain. The first three cages held dead men. Carrion crows had eaten out their eyes, yet the empty sockets seemed to follow her. The fourth man in the row stirred as she passed. Around his mouth his ragged beard was thick with blood and flies. They exploded when
he spoke, buzzing around his head. “Water.” The word was a croak. “Please… water,..” “Pay them no mind, boy,” the townsman told her. “They’re none o’ your concern. Ride on by.”
“What did they do?” she asked him.
“They put eight people to the sword at Tumbler’s Falls,” he said. “They wanted the Kingslayer, but he wasn’t there so they did some rape and murder.” He jerked a thumb toward the corpse with maggots where his manhood ought to be. “That one there did the raping. Now move along.”
“A swallow,” the fat one called down. “Ha’ mercy, boy, a swallow.” The old one slid an arm up to grasp the bars. The motion made his cage swing violently. “Water,” gasped the one with the flies in his beard. She looked at their filthy hair and scraggly beards and reddened eyes, at their dry, cracked, bleeding lips. Wolves, she thought again. Like me. Was this her pack? How could they be Robb’s men? She wanted to hit them. She wanted to hurt them. She wanted to cry. They all seemed to be looking at her, the living and the dead alike. The old man had squeezed three fingers out between the bars. “Water,” he said, “water.” Arya swung down from her horse. They can’t hurt me, they’re dying. She took her cup from her bedroll and went to the fountain. “What do you think you’re doing, boy?” the townsman snapped. “They’re no concern o’ yours.” She raised the cup to the fish’s mouth. The water splashed across her fingers and down her sleeve, but Arya did not move until the cup was brimming over. When she turned back toward the cages, the townsman moved to stop her. “You get away from them, boy -“
“She’s a girl,” said Harwin. “Leave her be.” “Aye,” said Lem. “Lord Beric don’t hold with caging men to die of thirst. Why don’t you hang them decent?”
“There was nothing decent ‘bout them things they did at Tumbler’s Falls,” the townsman growled right back at him.
The bars were too narrow to pass a cup through, but Harwin and Gendry offered her a leg up. She planted a foot in Harwin’s cupped hands, vaulted onto Gendry’s shoulders, and grabbed the bars on top of the cage. The fat man turned his face up and pressed his cheek to the iron, and Arya poured the water over him. He sucked at it eagerly and let it run down over his head and cheeks and hands, and then he licked the dampness off the bars. He would have licked Arya’s fingers if she hadn’t snatched them back.
Totally inspired by 10kiaoi’s little shit wolf Cloud and fueled by exhaustion and a continued craving for some Strifesodos and Cloudgeal. It’s really only a drabble at this point. I just love the comic and have a sever weakness for Cloud being his little shit self.
