The wedding was quick, simple, and in all honesty, it was more of a relief to have it over. There was no big fancy ceremony, no stress of finding a caterer, getting flower arrangements, finding a venue,  or creating seating arrangements. It was easier this way. Quick and easy. This was for the best. At least that’s what you tried to tell yourself.

It had just been you, James, your father, and Mr. Barnes at the courthouse. You signed the necessary papers and that was that. You were married. You were now Mrs. James Buchanan Barnes.

The Life Aphotic

And my hands they bleed, a stain I’ll always remember, a stain that stays with me. But this changes you–AQUILO (I Gave It All)

You visit the hospital almost everyday. A hospital of primary colors splashed against anesthetic whites, of sunlight wafting through barred windows, disinfected legos and coughs sandwiched between giggles. Small arms tug against your dress the moment you step in, pulling you, drawing you further into a paradoxical room of contrasts.

You squat and jab a sniffling Park Jimin in on the nose.

“What’s wrong now?”

His shoulders jerk and he glares through the sides of his eyes at a grinning twig of a boy, not a trace of guilt on his sunshine face.

“Jung Hoseok, what did you do this time?” you ask.

“I can’t help it!” he squeals, “Jiminnie’s just too cute. I may have pinched his cheeks a little too hard but he shouldn’t be crying.”

“Well, it hurts you doofus,” the small boy mutters and sits down by your feet.

The door opens.

Black Cats and Bad Luck

There was something about the holiday season that didn’t sit right with Blake, a feeling that bled through each and every holiday and left her feeling rather bitter while everyone else was cheery. As a faunus, one that had been with the White Fang for a number of years and who barely remembered her parents, any sort of festivity left her with a sense of loneliness that made her chest ache fiercely. When she had been with the Fang, there had been no time for holidays; every day had been a battle to survive, to find shelter, to fill their aching bellies…

Gift giving and carving turkeys hadn’t been high on their list of priorities.

If there was one day that Blake despised though, it was Halloween. Being a faunus was bad enough, but to be a cat faunus with black ears on Halloween was… It was not a fun time.

Series: Owari no Seraph
Pairing: Hyakuya Mikaela / Hyakuya Yuuichirou
Rating: M (Suggestive Themes)
Summary: Set in the modern world where no apocalypse took place, the Hyakuya orphanage is a normal establishment (albeit struggling financially), and the Hiiragi family are part of the 1% that makes up Japan’s upper-crust society.

In the midst of a weakening economy and skyrocketing costs of living in a high-end city like Tokyo, nobody wanted to adopt children nowadays or donate to a puny orphanage like theirs. Regardless, Mikaela was willing to do anything to help with the mounting pile of bills and keep his family off the streets…Yuuichirou just didn’t know how far he would go, until now.
