Jesse, you don’t have to listen to me all the time. It’s your own damn life. But if there’s anything I want you to actually take to heart, it’s this: Find someone who is the lyrics to your music and the music to your lyrics. Got that mijo?
Band AU. It’s honestly my favorite AU that I have going on with this lovely.
It has become extensive story wise and I do not have the confidence to summarize it well enough to do it justice. oTL
But some context for these two: Hanzo and McCree are in a rag tag rock band and get to know one another during the band’s tour. Hanzo is the bassist and McCree is lead vocalist who also plays guitar. Hanzo is excellent at writing lyrics and McCree excels at composing songs. They learn more about each other, help each other through their fears and the ghosts of their pasts, connect through music and lyrics, flirt while they play billiards, cheesy lyrics and implied confessions happen on stage, twooter drama, lots of antics in trailers, and more.
Bottom line, we love this AU and it’s very dear to us!
in the beginning the concept of pretty little liars was kind of out there but i actually believed it could happen, like it was semi-realistic. but not anymore!!! the dollhouse, the creepy and completely unrealistic masks, all the secret family members, the weird underground houses that alex kept spencer and wren in, the ‘which twin is it’, and mona keeping alex and mary drake locked up in france????? it turned into a stupid mess
AND i still havent forgotten about creepy ezra and how he stalked (yes, thats what he did) the girls and knowingly started a relationship with a minor all for some stupid book
i’m a voltron: legendary defender fan who loves klance BUT doesn’t mind if no relationships become canon, or if relationships other than klance (involving lance and keith or not) become canon! i love the show and i love the bond the characters have! giving others hate only makes all of us look bad and shipping shouldn’t be the only focus of the vld fanbase
Sodalite’s gem is blue, angular and smooth like his eyes, sprinkled with flecks of white that look like tiny stars against the navy depths within. It glimmers in the sunlight between curtains of silver bangs and Carnelian’s breath catches in his throat.
Sodalite’s gem is beautiful, just as beautiful as the day Carnelian first met the other gem, after he crashed into Earth in a stolen Kindergarten ship.
“Well?” came Sodalite’s grumble. Carnelian glanced down at his best friend and bit his bottom lip to keep himself from laughing aloud at the pout on Sodalite’s elegant face.
“It looks fine to me, Sodalite,” Carnelian answered honestly.
“It doesn’t feel fine.”
Carnelian tilted his head to the side. “What do you mean? You don’t think it’s shat-”
“No!” Sodalite rushed to say. “No, of course not. It’s not like Red Beryl would do us that much damage. She still wants to teach us stuff, after all. But…”
Sodalite shrugged moodily and some of his bangs slipped over his gem. “I dunno. ‘S weird.”
Carnelian hummed thoughtfully. He ran the tips of his rust-colored fingers over the azure gem and felt warmth swell in his chest as he watched it start to shine. Shocks of light broke across Sodalite’s pale blue skin like lightning, setting his whole body aglow.
Carnelian would never get tired of seeing that; Sodalite’s powers were amazing and incredible, and he loved feeling that power flicker through his limbs whenever they joined to become Agate.
“Y’know, Sodalite,” he began and the taller gem’s gaze flickered to his face. “Maybe it feels weird because we used up a lot of energy when we were Agate. That was the most power we’ve ever used.”
Sodalite looked away, but not before Carnelian spotted the blue blush spreading across sharp cheeks.
“I guess it could be that,” Sodalite muttered. He kicked his legs against the rock he was sitting on and Carnelian almost missed Sodalite’s quiet next words- “That was the longest we’ve ever been fused, too.”
Carnelian swallowed thickly. His ears burned and something was twisting and turning inside his chest.
He thought about earlier that day, when he and Sodalite had fused for training on Red Beryl’s insistence. The rush of energy that came from becoming one gem out of two, the joy of being as close to Sodalite as he could ever be-
It was addicting. He hadn’t wanted it to end, to turn back to being a lonely, helpless carnelian. He wanted to bask in Sodalite’s life force forever and never be alone ever again.
So they’d fought Red Beryl as Agate. She forced them to unfuse- she was still stronger than them even with their powers pooled into a single source- and they’d been nearly delirious afterwards. Fighting, thinking, moving…all of that took so much concentration because he and Sodalite had to be in total agreement with how their body should move.
That had never really been an issue, though. Sodalite knew Carnelian better than Carnelian knew himself by now. Two hundred years was a long time to spend with each other but those two hundred years were the best in Carnelian’s entire existence.
“I’m kind of sad,” Carnelian admitted, letting his hand fall from Sodalite’s forehead and stepping away.
Sodalite frowned at him. He almost looked disappointed that Carnelian had let go of him when he asked, “What are you talking about?
“I mean.” Carnelian dug the tip of his shoe into the sand. Waves crashed against the shore and seagulls called overhead.
He took a deep breath to fight down the butterflies in his stomach. “I mean, I was happy. Being with you, as Agate. I like being fused with you. It makes me feel…whole, somehow. I didn’t want us to separate.”
Sodalite made a choking sound. Carnelian lifted his head just in time to see Sodalite flush a deep, rich blue. His eyes darted everywhere but towards Carnelian and his nails scraped against the rock.
“D-Don’t say stuff like that! Seriously, how can you even admit something so- so-”
Carnelian doesn’t bother to fight the grin spreading across his lips. “So, what? Are you embarrassed, Sodalite, because you feel the same way? Hmmmm?”
“Shut up!” Sodalite snapped. “You already know the answer to that, dummy!”
Carnelian laughed freely, happily. He did know the answer. Agate had revealed as much Sodalite’s feelings as Carnelian’s when he had refused to split up.
“I’m glad,” Carnelian gasped and Sodalite’s thin eyebrows shot upwards. “I’m glad you agree with me, Sodalite.”
His best friend turned even darker, which Carnelian didn’t think was possible.
Sodalite stared down at the sand. “’Course I do. I-I don’t want to separate, either. But because of that….we probably shouldn’t fuse for a while.”
The air vanished from Carnelian’s lungs. “W-What? Why?!”
“You heard Red Beryl, it’s dangerous! We might never unfuse again!”
“Red Beryl doesn’t know everything!”
Sodalite’s tone made Carnelian’s words die in his mouth.
“We- we can’t,” Sodalite said and his voice shook. “We just. We can’t. I’m not saying it’s forever, but for right now it’s just not good for us.”
Sodalite’s eyes were pleading with him to understand, and Carnelian did. Really. But that didn’t mean he was happy with it.
“There are tons of other ways of staying together,” Sodalite cut him off. He slowly reached out, curling long fingers around Carnelian’s red-tinted one. “We’ve been together for two hundred years, right?”
Carnelian’s mind flashed through two hundred years of bursting laughter, soft silver locks and beautiful, pure blue eyes and skin and gems-
“Yeah,” Carnelian said roughly, struggling to speak around the lump in his throat. He tightened his grip on Sodalite’s hand until his knuckles turned white. He can feel his own gem pulsing where it touched Sodalite’s cool skin.
Fusion wasn’t the answer. Not right now. But that was okay, as long as he and Sodalite stayed together in the end. That was all that mattered.
Well… I’m kinda active again. Missed me? you guys probably don’t even remember me :D
How are y'all doing? Drop a message if you’d like! I’d be happy c:
Also! Since I was inactive for like… a whole year? I had to unfollow a lot of blogs because they were inactive as well. My dasboard is pretty empty now. Please like this or sth if you’re a pink/blue/white blog so I can check it out!
Tagging @mags-duranb, who asked (thank you for the interest btw, it was super sweet. Also, I love your art <3333) :) I was gonna make a post anyway, but I wanted it to be a timeline photoset hence why I’m not replying directly.
I thought it was about time I gave you guys a nice long update on the purrito, since we have now officially reached 2 months of age as of yesterday!
To answer the requester’s question, SHE is doing just fine xD That’s right, when we visited the vet about a week ago for the second round of shots, we got visible proof (or rather lack thereof) that we have a little girl in our hands. This was only a couple of days before I made an insta post announcing the official name, because of course it was. Way to embarass me, kiddo.
So I’d like to introduce you all to Buffy, because hello, so dang pretty, look at that last pic that was taken only yesterday, and she’s also pretty fearless and resourceful, though not necessarily highly intelligent xD Not a vampire slayer, but an ankle slayer for sure. I generally post updates on her every couple of days on instagram.
Oh, and, just as a final note on the whole name thing, yes, we still call her purrito from time to time, as well as a thousand other nicknames ;)
So! On to the update (and an extra… suprise?¿¿??) below the cut:
not to be rude but I hate when ur like in a really good place for a long ass time and ur just like “#finally I’m happy and successful and healthy and don’t actually wanna die for once” but slowly you can feel yourself getting sad again and there is nothing u can do about it!!!!
