[ahahaha i’m back with more for the kid i just sent you i am so so sorry but i am In Love this place is so cool. I still have no idea if i’m doing this right or if this contradicts canon ahaha i hope u like it anyways]
There are sometimes whispers of The One With Many Names. There are whispers of lots of students, of course, even among the Fair Folk occasionally–but by ‘occasionally,’ you mean rarely, and when the Fae start whispering about a student you’d better damn well pay attention to which student it is.
You know who The One With Many Names is; that one freshman who wears a dog tag (“aluminum,” is the answer you got when you asked what it was made of, “at least, I think it’s aluminum? Pretty sure, yeah.”), a dog tag with the genderfluid symbol and the pronouns ‘CE/CER.’ The freshman who came in pale and mousy-haired and turned into someone tall and dark and with too-bright hazel eyes. The one who went through six names in cer first semester before settling on cer current one. The one who draws people with wings and markings and pointed ears in the margins of cer papers and journals and, if someone asks, whispers that they’re fae.
If (when, rather) someone questions further, or scoffs at her (and one of the two always happens, or else ce’ll get self-conscious and explain it cerself), ce hastily adds, “Not the Fae, not our Fae, these are my–mine. They’re very different.” Then ce looks around as though ce’s worried someone (or something) is listening and changes the subject.
It’s a reasonable fear, that the Fair Folk will take offense, and Many-Names (you keep calling cer that in your head, and even though ce hasn’t changed cer latest name this other one keeps seeping into conversations in reference to cer) is scared stiff of offending the Fair Folk. Ce carries around a notebook filled with the Rules in cer backpack, right next to cer salt packets, and ce shares it with other freshman in need. Ce never lets it out of cer hands, though, instead huddling furtively with those who need it in places lined with salt or iron or protective woods, flipping pages and explaining and elaborating to the ones who need it. You don’t think ce’s realized it, but ce’s slowly but surely starting to make (yet another) name for cerself as one of those precious students who explain how things work around here–without asking for anything in return.
Ce doesn’t realize it, but the upperclassmen see it; slowly but surely, those freshmen who don’t know the rules and thank cer unthinkingly are amassing a debt to her. Ce doesn’t realize it, and neither do those others, but ce is gaining power from these tiny acts of kindness. Even if the easy words of “no problem!” ce throws out absolve them of that debt, the “happy to help!” ce’ll say just as easily is one that does not, one that implies they owe cer later.
Many-Names does not pick up on this. Ce has a degree of obliviousness about cer, but whether that obliviousness is damning or protective has yet to be determined.
Then there are the ones who never got the memo when ce changed to another name. There are some who still call cer by the first name ce used, and no matter which of those past five they use, ce still responds automatically to cer past names before a panicked expression flits across cer face and ce corrects them to the one ce uses now.
Ce responds to Many-Names, too, though.
The Fair Folk watch cer. You don’t know if it’s because ce’s one of the creative-type majors, or because of ‘cer fae,’ or maybe just because something caused cer to change cer appearance with each name, shifting like They do, if at an admittedly slower pace (and you still don’t know what kind of deal Many-Names made to pull that off), but they watch cer. You’re not sure how aware of it ce is, either, but you think ce must have some idea, because cer dorm room has twice as much salt lining the door as it ought to (but at the same time, ce leaves out more vanilla ice cream and milk than cer dorm-mates), and ce wears almost as much iron as ce can get (but ce will freely give some of it to anyone who’s forgotten some). Or maybe this is just paranoia and fear and uncertainty and kindness.
Either way, The One With Many Names is someone to keep an eye on, especially when ce gets that light in cer eyes and starts Asking Questions. Questions to close loophole and make painfully clear every facet of a phrase. Questions about the Fair Folk, and how to “make friends” with them (and then, when you say ce wouldn’t want to make friends with Them, “then at least how to stay on their good sides”), and how to ward them off, and what they do. Questions about Elsewhere.
You have a sizable bet that one of these days, when ce’s not careful and gets caught out alone, without iron and salt, Many-Names is going to be Taken.
You have your doubts on if ce’s capable enough to make cer way back.

Fic requeeeeest! ^w^ Pining!Yahaba with a massive CRUSH on the Mad Dog; Agony Aunt Watari; Clueless, Adorable first-years; Sneaky, Scheming 3rd years; and a not-so oblivious Ken-chan. Bonus points for 110% So Done With This Team coaches.
Yahaba spends a lot of
time being furious with himself.
“It’s just such a
cliche,” he says to Watari, who ends up being the very reluctant audience to
all his woes ever since he caught Yahaba blushing over something Kyoutani had
said. “You know what trope I hate the most in movies? The bad boy love
interest. The bad boy love interest is the worst.”
“I’m not sure you
should really be using movie tropes as a point of reference,” Watari says, who
is all things considered a very good sport about being Yahaba’s reluctant Agony
Aunt, although probably would have preferred if he’d never had the particular
insight of, “What, do you have a crush on the Mad Dog or something?”
“But they’re tropes
for a reason,” Yahaba insists. “And they’re designed to trick
unsuspecting people into falling in love with assholes. You shouldn’t fall in
love with people who are mean to you. That should never be anyone’s romance
concedes. “Yes, that’s true. But, to be fair. He’s not exactly mean.”
Yahaba opens his mouth
to protest this but has to stop because he knows it’s true. Kyoutani isn’t mean,
not really. He’s very aggressive and rough and skips practice and doesn’t
listen to the Third Years or the captain and he’s very disrespectful to
every player who loves this team.
But he’s not mean.
“The point remains,”
Yahaba sniffs, “That I should know better and I do know better, and I
really just need to get over this.”
“So who exactly would
you pick to be your love interest?” Watari asks, a little more snidely
than Yahaba thinks is strictly necessary.
Oikawa-senpai, maybe,” Yahaba mutters, blushing slightly. “Or, Iwaizumi-senpai.
Someone really cool and awesome and nice.”
“Two out of three of
those adjectives, I’ll maybe grant
you, but I think you must be thinking of a completely different Oikawa,” Watari
Yahaba ignores this.
“At any rate, it’s just a stupid crush and I want it to die already. How do I
“Uh,” Watari says, “I
don’t know, man, that’s a whole lot more complicated than my crushes usually
“Ugh,” Yahaba says,
and thinks he really needs better confidants.
The thing is, he is
stupidly attracted to Kyoutani. And it is stupid, because that’s exactly
why the smirking bad boys in the movies always get the girl despite the fact
that they’re rude and mean and complete slackers and obviously doomed to a
dead-beat lifestyle later on in life.
And Yahaba should
know better, because it’s not like he’s ever been attracted to the smirking
slacker lifestyle himself. He takes great pride in his appearance and manner
and he’s not ashamed by that. If he was to have a stupid, obviously doomed,
unrequited crush on someone, he would much, much rather he had a doomed,
unrequited crush on Oikawa who would have been a much better person to sigh
over and love from afar.
But, like, he can’t
stop thinking about him. Like the fact that he does come to practice
more often, ever since the loss to Karasuno. And he is a really good spiker.
And when he gets serious, it sends chills down Yahaba’s spine.
And despite Kyoutani’s
distinct rebellious image that Yahaba totally disapproves of, he kind of
likes the wild bleached hair and the black nail polish and the leather. (What
is wrong with you? Yahaba asks himself, appalled at his own taste).
He’s also pretty sure
Kyoutani writes poetry, and that really shouldn’t be appealing, because the
“sensitive bad boy” trope was even more offensive to him than the normal “bad
But he does
find it appealing and god it makes him so mad at himself sometimes.
“What’s your problem?”
“What?” Yahaba panics.
“You keep looking at
“I have no idea what you’re talking about! Shut up!” Yahaba shouts and storms
away, feeling Kyoutani’s eyes on him the entire time.
A/N: Ahaha, sorry
anon-friend! You asked for this suuuuuper long ago, right after I wrote
“poetry” and I’m sorry I couldn’t quite fit in all the things you suggested. I
do see it as a somewhat companion piece to the other short though, and I hope
do you have your own style? like how would you describe it?
hmmm… It’s a bit difficult for me to recognize my own style since it’s a bit generic and it changes a lot (though my friends and a few fans can recognize my “style” which is magical because I probably can’t lmao), but I made a meme of the general styles I draw :0
//there’s like a lot more and sometimes i combine them but that’s the general idea;;;; a lot of artists usually stick to their own “default” style and it’s like their signature thing, but I don’t think I have that ahaha;;; it just changes too much depending on my mood OTL but lemme know if you find something that screams “paluumin’s art” because I’d love to know ;O; <3
If Sabo concentrates his logia ability in his blind eye, Ace can see from the afterlife what Sabo sees right now.
OHHHH THIS IS A COOL IDEA. i guess the question is whether sabo would know ace could see through it :O (tho i assume if he knows to concentrate his powers there, he’d have to know)
i’m not really inclined to write aus myself i’m not creative enough but tbh i’m surprised there aren’t more aus of this nature….i know @motolokiev has a really cool one that’s kinda similar but i can’t find it rn. considering canon sabo’s way of acting, i think there are lots of interesting aus to be had about them having some sort of physical connection beyond the grave/sabo having part of ace’s consciousness in him, but i don’t see that often.
which is probably due in part to mangastream unfortunately butchering the translation of this line and so giving a large part of the fandom the completely wrong idea as to what he said:
above is the official, and most correct translation- he literally refers to the fire as being ace, and talks as though ace spoke to him. and later he talks about how when he got his memories back, it was because ace “told him who he was”. so yeah. ace actually having some way of seeing through sabo/communicating to sabo would slot in p well with canon ahaha.
Hey! to all of you who have followed me recently - I’m really happy you’re here, thank you for letting me be a tiny part of your dash!
Here are a few things that might be useful to know.
If you showed up here for the smut, then WELCOME SMUTTY FRIENDS. :) HERE is a masterlist postwith direct links for all my het smut writing. You can find my poetry and other writing on my fic page, except for my slash fic, which is here.
This blog is drama-free or as close as I can make it. I’m a Samgirl but I also love Dean to death, and the brothers together are the heart of the story for me.
I’m working on revamping my tags page, but such as it is you can find here. You’ll notice that I have six (6) active tags for general ogling, ahaha, not counting body-part-specific tags. This probably gives a fair idea of what to expect from this blog. :) Tags you might want to blacklist are “bloody boys” for blood/gore and “nsfwtext”.
I have a wincest sideblog here, if you’re into that, where I post my wincest and j2 writing.
Most of all, THANK YOU FOR YOUR FOLLOW!! I hope this is a happy place for you. Have a good one guys and hit me up with any questions at all! xx
