leodreamlife asked:

Freya and Lilith. For the OC ask thing. ;)

Hei, Leopardenkätzchen. ^-^ 

Freya Thalí Pekkala

Gender and Sexuality:
Freya identifies as genderfluid and panromantic/pansexual.


north-european / human mage

Birthdate and Birthplace:
22nd May 1995, Berlin/Germany

sharks, open water, deep open water, drowning; yeah you get the idea

What they would be famous for:
I think, Freya could be famous for their language-skills and their extrordinary good magic-skills.

What they would get arrested for:
Breaking into abandoned buildings and probably murder.

OC I ship them with:
I ship han with a non-binary merperson, who has no name yet and with Max aka Frodoapparat, who is kinda an OC in my fanfiction, cause it’s a kinda alternate universe, where Freya exists, so, yeah. And I also kind of ship them with Lilith. ;)

OC most likely to murder them:
…also mentioned merperson… and Flo, who is also sort of an OC in that fanfiction.

Favorite Movie/Book Genre:
Freya like fantasy and dystopian stuff a lot.

Least Favorite Movie/Book Cliche:
No matter how much of an asshole the guy is, he gets the girl nevertheless.

Talents and/or Powers:
Hen’s a mage with the powers of air, shadow and light and hen’s reaaally good at drawing.

Why Someone Might Love Them:
Hen’s loyal, honest, uncomplicated, but can and will murder someone who threatens han or hyn friends/datemates/family.

Why Someone Might Hate Them:
Freya is stubborn and always too late. And yeah, hen has a little anger issue.

Why You Love Them:
I, personally, love hyn whole character, look and especially how hen speaks up against evryone who talks shit.

Lilith Rose Kjær

Gender and Sexuality:
Lilith is female and biromantic/bisexual.


north-european / human (mage? still deciding)

Birthdate and Birthplace:
29th April 1996, Stockholm/Sweden

wasps, ants, heights, crowded places, big fire (like easter fires)

What they would be famous for:
There aren’t many people who know as much about the Harry Potter series as she does.

What they would get arrested for:
Helping Freya break into abandoned buildings.

OC I ship them with:
Well, well. First and foremost I ship her with Fæyn. And kinda with Freya too.

OC most likely to murder them:
Fæyn’s dad, I guess.

Favorite Movie/Book Genre:
Fantasy and lovey dovey stuff, as long as it is cool and not your cliché boy meets girl story.

Least Favorite Movie/Book Cliché:
Evryone is straight.

Talents and/or Powers:
She’s damn good at memorizing stuff about her favourite shows, movies and books. You need a reason to smile or an advise? Talk to her, she is most likely to help you.

Why Someone Might Love Them:
Lilith is strong, works hard for her dream and ist honest. It’s fun to be around her and she’s cute as fuck.

Why Someone Might Hate Them:
Oh dear god, is she lazy sometimes. She doesn’t like to share her food and she is the master of making puns at the most terrible times.

Why You Love Them:
I just know, how good she’ll be for Fæyn. She is Freya’s very best friend and hen needs her. And god, I love the backstory, I have given her.

Thank you, honey. ♥ Had a lot fun with this.
