Inspired by Charm

The Absence of Light

olicity || explicit || smut & angst || 1091 || more fics

summary: prompt: out of place - Inspired by Charmed - Oliver was Felicity’s Whitelighter until he let darkness inside and became something else. // other hiatus fics
a/n: tbh I was going to do something simple like gothlicity as a queen family gala, but i’ve been watching too much charmed lately and this happened. Also… if I got the lore wrong I apologize but it’s kind of…. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

side note - as i’ve said before my internet is being super wonky so updates and such are going to be slow. I just got lucky it hasn’t been too bad today. 

Excerpt:

Oliver didn’t know it was possible to feel like this. He wasn’t himself anymore. He didn’t know how he let this happen. One moment he was protecting his charge and the next he could feel all the light leaving his body. All the goodness in his heart and soul shrouded in darkness.

“Stop moping,” Helena said.

He scowled.

“You did this to yourself and you’re lucky I’m here to take you under my wing.”

“I didn’t mean for it to happen,” he spat, “And I don’t want your help.”

Black smoke formed in her hand. Seconds later, she pointed a crossbow at him. “You’re going to listen to me because if you don’t you will die. Some witch somewhere with vanquish you.”

Maybe he deserved it. He dropped his gaze away from her and looked to his hands. The hands that once protected the innocent, now tainted with death. He didn’t mean to. She was in danger. Her powers weren’t physical; she was a technopath, someone that could speak to technology with her mind. She tried her best to fight, but if he hadn’t gotten there then who knows what would have happen. Fuck, he knew, and that’s why he lost it. He killed a human out of anger. He was supposed to be a pacifist, a healer, and he lost control.

Now he felt so out of place and confused.

“I need to see her,” he pushed himself up.

Kings in Couture by slightlied, Teen, 15k (WIP)
A devil wears prada au in which victor is the editor-in-chief of a fashion magazine, yuuri’s his new secretary, and instead of talking about his feelings, victor just sends him on a bunch of errands. I LOVE THIS FIC!!!!!!

Icicles Melt in Summer by Shadow_sensei, Teen, 7.6k (WIP)
But more to the point, Victor Nikiforov, model for the Agape shoe and accessory line and face of Stammi Vicino Menswear, is sitting in one of his chairs.

Comfort Food by youaremarvelous, Mature, 20k (WIP)
Viktor is a wildly popular male model who is in crisis over aging out of the industry. He runs into Yuuri, an international university student struggling to make friends in the big city, and decides to make him his pet project. Unfortunately, matchmaking isn’t as easy as he thought it would be—especially when he starts developing complicated feelings for his client. So cute!!

urgent need of gravity by RennieOnIceCream (Hitsugi_Zirkus), Teen, 45k (WIP)
AU in which Yuuri is a make-up artist working in a small salon when he’s suddenly invited to work for big time fashion brand Stammi Vicino right alongside its top male model, Viktor Nikiforov, and love isn’t all glitter and perfectly-winged eyeliner. Thumbs up!

Rule of Thirds by genuivity, Gen, 2.3k
Victor sent the camera a smirk, taunting, seductive, come and get me, and it hit Yuuri like a punch in the face. He clicked the camera a few more times than necessary, partly to hide his own blush but mostly because he was so caught off guard. THIS IS SO CUTE

Koi no Yokan by moimiles, Teen, 35k (WIP)
Yuuri is a somewhat known designer who dropped everything after a disastrous show. Almost a year later, he starts casting models for his new collection and world famous model Victor Nikiforov shows up, wanting to be a part of the show regardless of how much he gets paid. LOVE!

Beauty in Everything by wecarryoninmindpalaces, Gen, 5.8k (WIP)

“Eros”, inspired by Yuri Katsuki by prettypetitpanda, Mature, 1.2k (WIP)
Victor Nikiforov, world renowned model and designer, meets a drunk Yuri Katsuki at a party and is inspired by his charms (and his ass). Yuri has no memory of this and is very confused why his idol suddenly showed up at his front door. Highly recommend!

Lessons in Love by rinsled05, Teen, 14k (WIP)
Viktor is a fashion designer who owns a luxury lingerie store and is in a creative rut. Yuuri is a graduate with a business degree and desperately eager to prove himself. Yuri can’t understand how the hell the two fell for each other. (Phichit totally gets it, though.) SO GOOD OMG

Just Remember by YuujinA, Teen, 3.7k
Yuri is a freelance photographer hired for a private photo taking session with the Russian model he’s been crushing on for ages. Great one shot!

The Return of the Little Piggy by SASS_QUEEN, Mature, 4.4k (WIP)
Once there was a boy named Katsuki Yuuri, who was shy, loved to make clothes, had adorable smiles and was fatter than the usual average human being. Now years later, there is now a man only known as Y.K. Fashion tyrant, multimillionaire, professional cold-stare giver. REALLY good so far!

One of my most favourite charming treehouses I`ve ever seen 

BUCKHEAD TREEHOUSE

Buckhead treehouse is a charming, almost fairy-tale cottage located in Atlanta, US state of Georgia. Nestled in the woods, this unique retreat is a real craft masterpiece. The neighborhood is a quiet, residential place where a man can relax in nature.
REPEATEDLY DESCRIBED AS BEING THE MOST RELAXING, ROMANTIC, DREAMY AND UNIQUE PLACE

Happy 86th birthday to William Shatner. You brought our favorite captain to the small and big screen and continue to inspire with your inimitable charm and inability to stand still.

From his book Shatner Rules: Your Guide to Understanding the Shatnerverse and the World at Large:

“Why say “yes”? “Yes” means opportunity. “Yes” makes the dots in your life appear. And if you’re willing and open, you can connect these dots. You don’t know where these dots are going to lead, and if you don’t invest yourself fully, the dots won’t connect. The lives you make with those dots always lead to interesting places. “No” closes doors. “Yes” kicks them wide open…..As long as you’re able to say “yes”, the opportunities keep coming, and with them, the adventures. Say “no” to fear and complacency. Keep saying “yes” and the journey will continue.”

This is what I know. Don’t settle for 40, 50, or even 80 percent. A relationship - it shouldn’t be too small or too tight or even a little scratchy. It shouldn’t take up space in your closet out of guilty conscience or convenience or a moment of desire. Do you hear me? It should be perfect for you. It should be lasting. Wait. wait for 100 percent.
—  Deb Caletti, The Secret Life of Prince Charming
Basic Color Magic

Color Magic is all about representation in your craft. It’s easy to add a little more power to your spellwork by using colors that represent the theme of what you are trying to accomplish. This is one of the most useful kinds of magic for beginning witches because color is found everywhere, unlike obscure herbs or stones, and can be found easily in most homes without having to buy anything new or expensive. You can write you words out in a colored pen, or on colored paper, use ribbons of specific colors in chord magic, or use colored candles. Color magic is great for beginners, and easy to add into spells, even for experienced practicians. All you need to know is which colors to use for which purpose.

“I think, like me, you see the magic in things,’Her tells her. ‘That’s a gift’. The Imaginary blanket around her is becoming threadbare - he’s unravelling it with his eyes, threatening to leave her exposed”.
