This is why I was praising Google Docs. I managed to crank out this and another small chapter all while running around doing errands. Since I was kind of excited to give you guys some fluff and the next chapter neither of these are edited.
I left things kind of vague in terms of details just cause I don’t know that many facts about everyone. Hope you enjoy!
Once again I must remind you that this is not edited, but it will be sure to (hopefully) get some of you excited for future chapters. In this chapter I make a couple head nods to @tenaciouslovechopshop work. One more strongly than the other. I won’t say too much so I don’t spoil this chapter. But I will leave you with THIS and THIS so you can get an idea of what I’m talking about ;)
PS. I apologize for the rough flow. It was the only way to get my ideas to cooperate.
that reminds me of this soulmate au i was considering
where you and your soulmate share the same scars and like, as vax and percy are growing up it doesn’t matter that much. there’s some scraped knees, there’s some knicks from percy learning how to tinker and general stuff. nothing too drastic ever happens
vax joins the clasp and the next day percy wakes up with a scarred shape of a tattoo on his back, only noticed by his sister cassandra who helps him dig through the books in the library to identify the symbol to see what he could learn about his soulmate.
and then the briarwoods attack, and percy is tortured and vax slips into a coma, worrying the fuck out of vex’ahlia.
percy’s hair loses all it’s color, and one wouldn’t consider it a scar- not compared to how many new scars he’s gained due his torture and escape- and it never occurs to him that it was something that could have transferred to his soulmate (not that he doesn’t already feel enough guilt over the scars that cover his back).
not until he’s laying in a prison cell, and a dark figure sneaks in, pulling back the hood of his cloak to reveal shockingly white hair that’s still raven colored at the tips.
You left. You forced me to learn to live life without you. You can’t be pissed that I don’t need you anymore. You can’t get angry because I filled my time with other things to stop me self-destructing. I never wanted to move on, it was your choice, now I am managing without you, and you just have to live with that.
For everyone who has loved the fantastic new Into the Woods movie soundtrack but had the one gripe of “Your Fault” being too slow. I have sped it slightly to match the pace of the original broadway recording. Enjoy!
