air scenting

2

As it always happened when he was at camp, Cross woke up with the sun. He had never been a heavy sleeper – probably from years of sleeping with one eye and one ear open – but at camp, he loved getting up early. This camp, and Granite Falls, was his favorite place in the world. He had been coming here since he was 13 years old – the first year without him around. This place was his sanctuary, his safe place, and he tried to never let a second go to waste.

Cross slipped out of his bunk, tiptoeing around the cabin out of habit rather than necessity. The guys he bunked with had proven time and again that they could sleep through anything, but years of trying to stay undetected kept him quiet as he gathered up his workout clothes. Dressing quickly in the bathroom, he started his jog to to the practice studio.

Running through the woods, Cross breathed in the early morning air, the scent of pine flooding his senses. Sunlight pushes its way through the canopy of trees above him, speckling the path in front of him. He loved this time of day, when the world around him began to wake up. It made him feel alive.

When he reached the studio ten minutes later, he stopped short, surprised to find it already occupied. Normally he was the first one here in the mornings. Intrigued, he crept closer.

Someday I want to live in a community of witches. We’ll have gardens and kitchens and ecotechnology and be near the sea and the air will buzz with our magic. There’ll be paths of rose quartz gravel, and flowers growing everywhere and scenting the air, and trees, and bonfires during summer and hearth fires during winter, and all of our gods (for those of us who have them) will want to come hang out because it’s such a magical place.

Another mini comic!! When our group got back from the bakery to our caravan/wagon, our DM prompted everyone except Gal to make a perception check and this happened. Turns out that the drink Gal had at the bakery had a special side effect on her: the drink turns to air molecules as soon as it hits the tongue, and with Gal being part air…well, it’s now part of her too. She’s stuck smelling like strawberries. - @adriana-likes-tea

The world could change a lot in four months, transforming from dull and grey to full of life and color. The once white ground now was sprouting with sprigs of green, the air filled with the scent of fresh flowers blooming. Your eyes were constantly enticed, watching the cherry blossoms in the park flutter to the ground when the wind blew too hard, noticing how the number of people out every day had multiplied as the weather improved. The earth looked new, fresh, like someone had turned it off and back on again, resetting it to his most gentle settings, ones that emitted joy. It was all in stark contrast to how it had been just weeks ago. The world had moved on in the past four months, things had changed, and in some ways, so had you.

It’s time.
It is officially October.
The month in which my heart yearns for that comforting feeling in the air of just knowing that it is once and for all autumn.
The witches come out on their brooms and take late night rides across the waning moon, as do the black cats that prowl along the streets at midnight.
The scary movie marathons begin and there’s a chill and a spook that follows you into your house late at night as you retire on the couch after a long day.
You’ve got all of your favorites — apple cider donuts, pumpkin spice hot chocolate, and a candle that emanates fall.
Outside, the crisp wind sweeps colors of gold, orange, and red along the window and there is a faint cackling in the air — for one of the witches has been flying up above.
The next day, you’ve got plans to visit the pumpkin patch, where large bumpy pumpkins sit on bales of hay, waiting oh-so patiently to be chosen.
You shake ripe red apples from bending branches and go on your way, stopping only once to pet the cat at your feet.
Your footsteps quicken at the cawing of a black crow that swoops against the blue backdrop.
The pumpkin seeds go straight in the oven for roasting and the smell of cinnamon fills the air.
That night, with a carved pumpkin sitting out on your steps, and a plate of pumpkin seeds on your lap, you allow yourself to pause and soak in that feeling.
Not the feeling of a good scare when the witches bring when they come around to scare you … no.
And not the feeling of a good smile when the cat comes to visit you … no.
But the feeling of warmth and coziness that hangs in the air; the fresh scent of nature that streams in through the open window.
It is the feeling of knowing that it is October.

my MHA headcanons (so far)
  • Bakugo is the only one who can actually tie his own tie, but you would never know because he doesn’t wear it. let’s be honest, a bunch of fifteen year old kids probably had their moms doing it for them, so when they move into the dorms this suddenly becomes a problem. the discovery is made when Kaminari comes to class with a nice tie and spills the beans. now, bakugo has to deal with people asking for his help (which he always does)
  • Kirishima had braces when he was little. his pointed teeth took the place of his flat baby teeth but they were kinda crooked. he didn’t have full head gear, but he did have to use rubber bands and a power coil. when he got them off, it took forever to re-learn how to speak and eat. he now has a slight fear of the dentist, worried they might tell him that he needs braces again.
  • Kaminari will charge your electronics for you, but only if you stay with him while he does. You can’t just leave your phone with him and go off somewhere. Talk with him, do homework with him. make popcorn and watch movies. some of the kids go to him without really needing a charge and hang out with him because he’s a generally cool dude
  • Shoji can play the piano. and the guitar. and the harmonica. all at the same time. it’s quite a sight to see.
  • Todoroki has a half-moon beta fish in his room that he shows an unusual amount of care for. she’s a pretty blue and silver fish, and the other kids could watch her swim all day. she inadvertently becomes the mascot of class 1-a. her name is Usagi. no one knows if the name is a reference to sailor moon or not, and they’re too afraid to ask
  • Uraraka loves scented candles. her room is a menagerie of smells - flowers, fruits, mountain air, and other such scents. sometimes it can be overwhelming, but when she leaves her door open, the entire floor smells heavenly. In winter times, uraraka lets other borrow her candles. the girls always smell so nice and the boys can’t figure out why.
  • Izuku, because he’s been to the hospital and nurse’s office so much, is starting to become a working-expert on medical treatments, both conventional and obscure. which means he kinda becomes the nurse of class 1-a when recovery girl is away on weekends and holidays. got a tummy ache? go to izuku for ginger ale. can’t sleep at night? lavender under your pillow and lots of water. sore muscles? you could try tylenol, but salty food and a hot bath will also do the trick.

You had always been told that when you bonded the urge to nest and find a suitable home would be strong. You had almost scoffed at your grandmother, the matriarchal omega of your family only smiled knowingly. But now as you sat on the old worn out couch in the small Brooklyn apartment you suddenly understood. The apartment was by no means small, it housed you and your two mates comfortably. You purred to yourself cradling your steaming mug of tea at the thought of your two alphas. Physically they were everything an omega looked for in an mate. Strong, protective, loving. But they came with a catch… they were already a bonded pair. It wasn’t common to hear of two Alphas bonded. Their need to have a mate submit was primal, but the close friendship they shared meant that compromises were made when necessary. But when you stumbled into their lives you had fitted perfectly and no one had any objections to a triad pack.

Frost Breath | M

Amidst the hot springs, your clothes were stolen.

Genre & Warnings — Fluff, Humor, + smut. Enjoy.


A small stream of water drizzling down stones and pebbles sang into the night as your head was thrown back just the slightest, staring into the blinking stars splattered on the obsidian sky. Breathing in from your nose as you were mouth deep into the scorching water, steam erupts in certain areas as a cyan light emits from the floor of the spa.

Bubbles scurried around the surface of the water before bursting, and the palm trees and various bushes adorning the area danced within the wind — leaves rustling and harmonizing a wonderful tune. Closing your eyes, you listen to a group of ladies giggle as they emerge from the lava inducing waters, small sloshes and splashes heard until the haven was completely void of life.

And the hot spring was only dotted with you.

Read it on AO3!

To say Dan was having a terrible day was an understatement.

He woke up late, having forgotten to set an alarm for work, so he had to rush through his morning routine. This meant he wasn’t able to take an hour long shower like he was used to and he couldn’t straighten his hair. Thanks to genetics, his hair dried in curly ringlets that stuck out in every direction.

He also had to skip breakfast, which is bad in itself, but he soon found out that his coffee machine had stopped working as well. Dan with curly hair and no morning caffeine? Not a good idea.

So he went for the best option of going to the nearest coffee shop and ordering a french vanilla latte to go.

The wait was nearly impossible to sit through, especially with Dan’s habit of being too impatient for his own good. He was bouncing on the balls of his feet, practically quivering in his shoes at each name that was called. His eyes were frantic while he tried to distract himself from the inevitable doom that was this horrible morning.

Chapter 1

The purple door of Brooklyn Blooms stood out amongst the brownstones, like a colourful shell lying on the dull sands of a beach. It had been Steve’s idea to paint it, no longer wanting the flaking grey paint to reflect the sombre mood of the florist and with that first stroke of purple paint you saw Steve’s smile return.You had met Steve as a young apprentice fresh out of floristry school, his mother taking you under her wing in her cosy Brooklyn shop. 

You remember first walking into the shop. Every nook and cranny was covered in plants and flowers of all kinds, the air light with mingling scents. Mostly, you remembered the sheer joy that surrounded the florist, people milling about buying little bouquets of happiness for others and once you had met Sarah and her son Steve the atmosphere made even more sense. Steve and you quickly bonded, becoming friends soon after. So, when his mother got sick Steve didn’t hesitate to ask you to move in with them into the apartment above the shop.

The Bookstore

Square Filled- Destiel

Rating- Mature

Tags- almost-smut, bookstore au, alpha!Dean, omega!Cas

Word Count- 1500ish

A/N: For @spnabobingo​. Hope you enjoy! XOXO


Dean walks by the bookstore every single day on his way to work and looks for the stranger who works there. The town is small, and Dean thought he knew everyone who lived here, until this place opened up. For five months now, Dean has walked by this bookstore. And for five months, he has wondered about the dark haired man inside. The one he’s never seen around town before.

Sometimes the man is on the computer at the large counter, sometimes helping a customer, sometimes straightening and restocking the shelves. No matter what he’s doing, he’s always gorgeous. His hair is long enough to be messy when he runs his hands through it, and Dean loves the days when it’s sticking everywhere, like maybe the store was too busy or too boring and the man has a nervous habit of pulling at it. He has broad shoulders, and is taller than most people around him, though still a couple of inches shorter than Dean. His jeans always cling tight to his thighs and his ass, like they’re a little too big for his small waist. He’s perfect.

“Run.”
The deformed command that fell from Jaebum’s mouth had Y/N running for the back door out of their cabin. Fear had overridden logic as she bolted past her shoes and off the deck. The soft earth beneath her feet was a mild comfort as she ran for her life.
Forest leaves exploded in color as the sunset washed over them. Oak and maple leaves littered the forest floor forming a radiant carpet of yellows, reds and golden browns. Y/N’s barely covered feet ran over them, uncaring of the wonders around her. She looked to the sky only to see the sun slowly dipping below the horizon. Birds screamed warnings of impending danger above her. Quickly they flew overhead leaving her in their dust. The young woman whimpered wishing she could take flight just like them, to leave and return to Seoul.

Sokcho was supposed to be a beautiful weekend destination for Y/N and her beau. They’d gotten some time off for Chuseok and decided to spend it alone for the first time. Everything was planned, their stay, the touristy shit they’d wanted to partake in and even their last day of lounging. Jaebum was the one to suggest the mountains this far north, said it would “bring them closer to all the natural parts of themselves.” Y/N had to laugh at the irony of that one. Is this how her ancestors felt, running from larger things that wanted to eat them? Fear was a powerful thing, it kept her legs pumping despite the fire in her chest. 

As she ran deeper into the woods the trees became closer, the roots thicker and more untamed. Thump. Thump. Thump. Y/N blood rushed in her ears, the birds long gone, all she could hear was the sound of her heart. She swore it was going to pop out of her chest at any moment; until then she kept going, bobbing and weaving through the underbrush. Thu-thump. Thump. Thump. That wasn’t her heart. Y/N broke out in a petrified sweat. She wondered how he’d caught up so fast and whether she’d collapse before he caught her.
