a touch of heavenly light

DannyMay Day Seven: Language/Weather

…He wanted to go out. Why would Mommy be so mean. It’s not gonna hurt him. She knows that. He knows that. He just wants to play outside. All the other boys and girls get to play so why can’t he?

He grumpily stared out the window.

It had been raining all day. Not too hard but enough to make big puddles. He wanted to go splash in them so bad. But Mommy said he couldn’t go. She said she was too busy to watch him and he was too little to go out all alone. He wasn’t too little! He was three and a half! That’s almost a big kid!

Jazz could go out by herself. It wasn’t fair. Just cuz Jazz was two years older. He pouts and crosses his little arms. Mommy and Daddy are always too busy when he wants to play. He looks over his shoulder at the couch where Jazz is sitting. She’s reading a book with big words in them. He pouts some more and plops down on the floor.

He can tell that Jazz is looking at him. Good! Cuz he’s gonna be mad forever until he can go play in the rain. He hears Jazz close the book.

“Danny, you ok?”

“I wanna play outside”

“Danny, Mommy said no”

“But I wanna go! It’s not fair!”

Jazz sighs. He turns to look at her. She puts her book down and walks down to the lab. Fine! He’ll just sit here all alone and be mad. He glares at the window. Watching as the rain made little drops on the glass. He sighs sadly, tracing shapes in the foggy window for what feels like hours.

“Danny! Danny!”

Jazz yells all happy. He remembers to be mad and puts on his best angry face. He turns around. Jazz is wearing her raincoat and boots. He feels so betrayed. She’s gonna go play in the backyard without him…oh…wait. Jazz grinning from ear to ear pulls out from behind her back Danny’s raincoat and boots. He gasps.

“Mommy said that if I go with you and we stay in the backyard then you can play in the rain.”

Danny smiles so hard his face hurts. He bounces up and runs over to Jazz and hugs her real tight. He has to get on his tippy-toes just to reach her waist.

“Jazzy, you’re the best big sis ever!”

Screaming thank you at her he lets go and dashes down to the lab. Mommy and Daddy turn to look at him and he hugs them one by one yelling thank you and I love you.

Running back up he finds Jazz giggling. He grins at her and puts on his rain gear in record time. His first time playing in the rain is finally going to happen! He grabs her hand and starts pulling.

“C'mon Jazzy! Hurry!”

“Ok, ok, slow down Danny”

He’s bouncing with anticipation. He can’t reach the doorknob so Jazz has to open the door for him. It feels like an eternity before the door is finally open he dashes out the door and down the stairs, forgetting that they’re wet and slippery. He flipped over the stairs and landed face first in the grass. Jazz screeches.


He slowly gets up on his hands and knees. Already wet and covered in mud. Jazz crouches beside him scrambling asking if it hurts, checking him all over. He slowly looks up at her and she stops all actions. His eyes are sparkling.


Jazz sighs as he starts giggling. He gets up and jumps into a big puddle. The resulting splash is out of this world. It was the single most amazing moment of his entire life. The sun came out and shone upon him. Rays of heavenly light touching his skin. He can almost hear a choir of angels singing. He faintly hears Jazz trying-and failing-not to laugh.

He spent the whole day splashing around. He even got Jazz to play with him. They were jumping in puddles, dancing around, playing tag, you name it. By the time the sun was setting they were super tired. Happy but tired. Mommy caught them coming back in. She snorts.

“Did you two have fun today?”

“Yeah! It was great! Jazzy played with me too!”

“I can see that”

Mommy looks at them. They’re all covered in mud and soaked to the bone. But he wouldn’t change a thing. His first time playing in the rain and it was awesome. He smiles up at mommy feeling like the king of the world. She picks him up and grabs Jazz’s hand.

“Ok you two, now it’s bath time”

AGAINST THE SUN (listen; art credit)

BREATH OF LIFE; florence + the machine
     i was looking for a breath of life
     a little touch of heavenly light
     but all the choirs in my head sang no

WHO WE ARE; imagine dragons
     we were never welcome here at all
     it’s who we are
     doesn’t matter if we’ve gone too far

DESTROYA; my chemical romance
     they don’t believe in us
     but i believe we’re the enemy
     so show me what you got
     you children of the gun

PARIS IS BURNING; st. vincent
     we have taken to the streets
     in open rejoice revolting
     we are dancing a black waltz
     fair paris is burning after all
     dance fair paris to the ground

     the wolves will chase you by the pale moonlight
     drunk and driven by a devil’s hunger
     don’t you lift him, let him drown alive
     the good lord speaks like a rolling thunder

     you can run on for a long time
     sooner or later god’ll cut you down

     i’ll never find someone quite like you again
     the demi-gods and hungry ghosts
     god, god knows i’m not at home

THE ENDING; ellie goulding
     i think i’ve been praying
     the lights won’t go out
     there won’t be anything to hold onto
     there won’t be anyone in the end

     and you thought the lions were bad?
     well, they tried to kill my brothers
     felled in the night by the ones you think you love

     well god knows that i’ve failed
     but she knows that i’ve tried
     and i think of you in glasgow
     'cause you’re all that is warm in my restless heart


Yatori Week 2016, Day 7 - Tsukuyomi

I was looking for a breath of life
A little touch of heavenly light


To get a dream of life again
A little vision of the sun in the end

@stargiving​ + lyric starter

A ghost wandering Ionia, suffering and crying out. She drags her feet along the dirt, the ground that she once bled out on, and closes her eyes. She can’t cry anymore — she doesn’t even remember what crying felt like. When she approaches the capital, the magic infused city of wonder, she encounters a dead celestial. Kalista steps back from her healing touch, feeling a scorching flame in her chest.

❝ I was looking for a breath of life,
                  a little touch of heavenly light.

I was looking for a breath of life A little touch of heavenly light

Apocalypse Au, Final Part. 

This is the last part, guys. THE END. I hope it’s good - it’s very long, and it was draining to write. I hope this lives up to expectations ? Anyway, enjoy, and be generous to me, that is all I ask. Anyway, this fic has been wonderful to write - it leaves me crying to myself from emotions. Everyone has been supportive and lovely, and I hope this ending pleases you. 

Sequel to
