its 3:30am and I just woke up in a cold sweat because I realized noragami’s plot is literally a joke.

hiyori’s name is one syllable away from hiyoko, the japanese word for chick, i.e. a baby chicken. she becomes a half ayakashi and is then able to see beings from both the normal world and the far shore, as well as astral project herself and travel to places of the far shore that normal humans can’t. she gains the latter ability after running across the street to push yato out of the way of oncoming traffic.

noragami’s plot is literally: why did the chicken cross the road? to get to the other side.

the black brothers: one too soft, the other too hardened.

regulus is nine when he first hears sirius fighting with their parents, railing against their tyranny and prejudice and cruelty. the shouting and smashing frighten him, chase him deep under his covers where he cries silent steady tears until sirius slips into his room hours later and coaxes regulus out of his cocoon, whispering soothing loving words of comfort and fierce apology.

regulus is eleven when he enters hogwarts, excited and wide-eyed at the enthusiastic crush of fellow students laughing and reuniting. after his mother warns him of mudbloods and father reminds him, toujours pur, sirius wrestles him into a headlock, dragging him into a compartment where there are three joking boys–gryffindors–who embrace and welcome regulus into their midst. when regulus sorts slytherin, he glances over at the sea of red and gold, but sirius looks away disappointed, mouth grim, eyes closed, to the beat of regulus’s sinking heart.

regulus is sixteen when he joins the death eaters, swears allegiance to a charismatic lord and band of idealistic brothers. they speak of purity, of justice, of oppression–all familiar cadences to pureblood son regulus–eliminating blood traitors and rewarding the worthy. he is swept up in visions of glory and familial pride, approving mothers and fathers and brothers.

regulus is eighteen when he stands on the edge of a precipice, hands shaking as he drinks and drinks and drinks, kreacher trembling by his side. there are regrets, so many regrets, and as he takes his last gasp, the horcrux safely stowed away, he can almost glimpse sirius smiling tenderly at him from a distant far-off shore, arms wide open and pride shining in his glance.

the black brothers: one too soft, the other too hardened. regulus and sirius, death eater and marauder, slytherin and gryffindor, blood faithful and blood traitor, weak and strong, strong and weak, soft and hard, hard and soft.

Experiences I Share and Remember with Each Sign

Aries: Going to the mall just to eat in the food court, fighting monthly but making up quickly, talking on the phone for hours, Riding the subway from one end of the city to the other just for fun.

Taurus: Laughing so hard in restaurants and having the waiter overhear, buying matching friendship rings, walking in the empty mall after hours, watching a horror movie and getting paranoid on the subway home. 

Gemini: Listening to our favourite songs together. Walking them home after they got sick. Gossiping about anything and everything, missioning across the city for greek food.

Cancer: Getting breakfast before school, walking our dogs, playing soccer one on one, taking the bus late at night and walking each other home

Leo: Working the late shifts, helping them to spring clean their house, going for Saturday runs, swimming in the ocean far from the beach shore line and having to go back because I got scared.   

Virgo: Going horse back riding, singing our songs, going to the soccer stadium, practicing piano together.  

Libra: Talking all throughout class time and having to get separated, having roast wars, going to the gym to workout separately , fighting and then crying to each other after. 

Scorpio Trying fast food and getting sick after, convincing them that astrology is real, calling each other after one of us has a bad day, throwing them a surprise party. 

Sagittarius: Going to the pool just for them to swim for 5 minutes, Hitting up the cottage every summer. Going to my first concert with them. Binge watching our newest show in a weekend.

Capricorn: Walking 8 km just talking, getting coffee and catching up, having them show me their neighbourhood and the best restaurants in it. Reading tarot cards for them and vice versa. 

Aquarius: LISTENING TO MUSIC 24/7, roasting our law teacher in quiet, Having battles of who is the most stubborn, facetiming to work on projects we procrastinated until the last minute for.

Pisces: DRINKING COFFEE and staying up until 4am, sending each other new songs we discover that we liked. sitting in the park all day long, Going for walks late at night.

frankenstein poem

-playlist on shuffle

-make a free-verse poem using the first line of the first song, the second line of the second song, etc. etc. until you reach song five or six, that seems about long enough.

-alternately just take the first line of each song, whatever’s easier for you my dude

ex: “take me for a ride, I’m the one you pushed aside
it’s only in your head you feel left out or looked down on
she loves the sea and her people
at the same time, at the same time
the sun is down and we’re bound to get exhausted and so far from the shore”

-profit???

-actually these could be interesting writing/art prompts

Noragami is an anime/manga I’ve gotten in to after much recommendation from others. Such a fun show involving Japanese deities! And of course, I ship Yatori (Yato/Hiyori).

Totally add this show to your “to-watch-list” if you haven’t already. <3

They were far out from shore now—it was a shining line in the distance, the highway a ribbon of moving lights, the houses and restaurants along the coastline glimmering. “Well, as it turns out, my parents didn’t die in the ocean.” Emma took a shuddering breath. “They didn’t drown.”

“Knowing that doesn’t wipe out years of bad dreams.” Julian glanced toward her. The wind blew soft tendrils of his hair against his cheekbones. She remembered what it felt like to have her hands in that hair, how holding him had anchored her not just to the world, but to herself.

“I hate feeling like this,” she said, and for a moment even she wasn’t sure what she was talking about. “I hate being afraid. It makes me feel weak.”

“Emma, everyone’s afraid of something.” Julian moved slightly closer. “We fear things because we value them. We fear losing people because we love them. We fear dying because we value being alive. Don’t wish you didn’t fear anything. All that would mean is that you don’t feel anything.”

“Jules—” She started to turn toward him in surprise at the intensity in his voice, but paused when she heard Cristina’s footsteps quicken, and then her voice, raised in recognition, calling:

“Mark!”

The Calling of the Sea - Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 (coming soon!)

Hiccup’s father was chief of their little island, but he was a fisherman by trade. And so it was only natural that Hiccup be brought out and trained, on their little buoy at first, not far from the shore, and later, in their fishing vessel. On one cloudy day, early in Hiccup’s life, he discovered something–or someone–rather incredible. A little mermaid, about his age.

Though he claimed to have seen her on a few trips, his father never believed him–nor the rest of his village. As he grew up, like most grown-ups are unfortunately wont to do, he chopped up the experience to an overactive childhood imagination.  

That is, until one day, an old friend decided to pay him a visit…

AKA I got a hankering for merstrid and!!! baby hiccstrid??

Anyway, might flesh out this au some more… cause it fun :]

I’ve Lived A Long Bloody Time

Captain Duckling Soulmate AU. Everyone is born with a soul mark that only has one match. The day you reach 20, you stop aging until you find your match. (1/?)

For my lovely valentine @princess-emma-of-misthaven. Sorry, it’s a little late. I loved talking to you these past weeks and I hope to chat more.

Killian Jones has been plagued his whole life, a lot of bloody years, by the swan beneath his collar bone.

It’s a simple soul mark but a rare one.

Simple in it’s design, it consists of two lines—a thick curving line in the shape a hook, swooping down and out, thinning into a gentle curve like that of a closed eyelid and another, slightly rippled line starting about two-thirds of the way down from the first, rising, falling and then rising again, flicking up like wave smashing against rocks.

The sorcerer that was something then became nothing.

In that nothingness he found something, fathomless and relentless. 

He strayed too far from the hallowed shores. Drawn in by the whispers on the water’s surface.

sinking.

sinking…

He drowned in the deep darkness of the world.

The man was never seen again.

But…what did crawl out of the water one night.

Under a plagued moon light,  

something foul.

something….tainted.

an unspeakable longing, a wild rage strangled the air and lashed the holy ground. 

one touch on land, golden sand turned to black,

ink and tar that too, seeped from its hearth, where the beast’s mark had been. 

poison followed in the wake of a king made empty and alone.

He should have known bathing out in such an exposed place was a bad idea.

a sea of desperation

i want to drown you out of my memory
for thoughts of what we
once were
still haunt me.

i need to drown you out of my memory, and so
i will travel to the ocean and swim as far from shore as i can.
i will let the waves take me.
drifting,
drifting.
i will become one with the ocean.

i don’t know how to drown you out of my memory, but
i will try, and
i will fail and
fail and
fail
until i don’t–
until the swell consumes me.

i will drown you out of my memory
even if it kills me.
