attack of the castle of love

I’m Here {Harry Potter x Reader}

Requests are open!

It’s an angsty writing sort of day.

Prompt: Hi! I was wondering if you could do an angsty imagine with Harry Potter? I can’t find any imagines for him and he’s my baby :/ thank you!

A/N: I feel like this a little out of character I’m so sorry if it is. But overall I think it turned out a-okay

Warnings: angsty, language but barely any, kinda sad but it gets better I promise

You ran outside to see the lights shower down on the shield, keeping us locked in the castle walls. Most of the students had left days ago once they heard the castle was expecting an attack. Your mother begged you to come home but you weren’t leaving behind your friends and more importantly Harry. The boy with the lightning scar, the boy you loved so much.

Your heart raced as you began to notice the failing shield. You sweaty palm closed around the wand buried in your jacket. Everyone began to retreat inside as thew death eaters stormed the castle. The Battle of Hogwarts had begun.


You sprinted back to the remaining members of Dumbledore’s Army. There was a collection of hushed whispers upon your arrival. The few people in the room stared at you like you had grown another head. Every head turned to the top of the wall. The painting that used to hang there had been swung open to reveal Neville standing there with Harry. 

You heart exploded and you covered your face to hide your embarrassing relief. Harry continued to stare at the group, avoiding eye contact entirely. He landed on the ground and everyone in the room surrounded him cheering and celebrating the trio’s safe return. You stood on the outside trying to weave through the crowd. The students dispersed and you stood across from Harry. He looked like he hadn’t slept in a week and he hadn’t showered in a month.

You stepped forward to meet him but when you went to wrap your arms around his torso he pulled away. You tilted your head to the side, forced a smile. Harry stood in front of you completely emotionless.

“Why are you here?” It was quiet but you heard the twinged of anger in his voice.

When Mrs. Norris is temporarily paralyzed after indirectly seeing the basilisk in Chamber Of Secrets and Filch at first believes she’s been killed, he breaks down into violent sobs. That is not how a grown man, particularly one as usually heartless as Filch, reacts to a dead cat. Once he finds out she’s only been petrified, he still viciously attacks Harry, who he believes to be responsible. No one outside of a Cathy comic has ever loved a cat more than Argus Filch.

But it actually gets weirder. To say that Mrs. Norris is an exceptionally smart cat would be like saying Superman is an exceptionally strong dude. Filch and Mrs. Norris often work as a team, patrolling different areas of the castle for misbehaving students. Getting caught by Mrs. Norris is as bad as getting caught by Filch, because she will fetch him straight away. This means that Mrs. Norris has memorized the school’s rules, understands them, and recognizes when a student is breaking them. In the first book, Hagrid tells Harry and Ron that he suspects Filch has trained Mrs. Norris to follow him specifically. You’ll recognize all of these as things cats can’t do. (It’s been theorized that Mrs. Norris might be part Kneazle, a cat-like magical creature with superfeline intelligence, but Rowling has shot it down.) She also shows up on the Marauder’s Map, while other animals don’t. It’s almost like she’s a person in the body of a cat in a magical universe where that exact thing can definitely happen.

The Untold Story Behind The Hogwarts Cat

do you know in the darkest hour part 2 when lancelot and merlin went back to the knights and arthur but lancelot walked in first solely to give arthur a panic attack that merlin was dead, only to have merlin walked up five seconds later?? what assholes. what honest to god jerks. i love it. they literally planned that out. they stood outside that ruined castle, about to walk in together, but then one of them was like “wait wait wait, hang on. dude. i got an idea. everyone will go crazy.” and i am willing to bet all the money i have on this earth that it was lancelot’s idea

👑Royalty AU Starters👑

  • ▸ "By tomorrow morning, the kingdom will be yours."
  • ▸ "Captain _______ of the royal guard, your majesty! The castle's under attack!"
  • ▸ "You've been locked in your room for five days, you need to act like a prince/ss!"
  • ▸ "You gambled away... the crown jewels."

  • ▸ "My GOD, your highness, what happened out in battle?!"
  • ▸ "Did the foreign prince/ss catch your eye?"

Things I loved about Beauty and the Beast (spoilers obvs)

I have to say that, being a huge fan of the original , I was very sceptical about this live action version. But it completely won me over. I’ve seen it twice (once in IMAX which I definitely recommend) and I’ve been listening to the soundtrack on repeat for 3 days. The movie was an absolute delight and I wanted to highlight my favourite bits :)

  • The fact that the Prince is an adult (and no mention of how long ago he was cursed)
  • The memory charm!
  • The group scenes with real crowds (I get really annoyed when movies have street scenes etc. with only 4 people in them)
  • Diverse Cast!
  • The priest giving her the books (makes much more sense than having a bookstore in that village)
  • “Ugh!”
  • Belle the tinkerer/inventor
  • Belle teaching the little girl how to read
  • Cadenza playing a bit of Be Our Guest when Maurice arrives in the castle (reminded me that the song was originally going to be for him)
  • Maurice stealing a rose
  • The entire Gaston song, but specifically:
  • LeFou paying the people to participate and sing along (Gaston is not blindly adored by all the townspeople)
  • The clapping/instrumental bridge
  • ‘And his name’s G-A-S-T’ which was in the soundtrack for the original but cut for the movie so I was super happy to see it was included
  • The castle crumbling and the servants going through changes every time a petal falls (I remember that last bit was in the Broadway musical too)
  • Mrs Potts being understanding of Belle’s escaping
  • Belle not eating a thing during Be Our Guest ^^
  • The Beast reacting to Romeo and Juliette and also the King Arthur bit
  • Belle’s reaction to the library
  • The magical book literally lets her travel as a reference to her ‘travelling’ with the books she used to read at home (I only realised this two days after I saw the film…)
  • The Beast in make-up
  • Why is she running away in her yellow dress surely it’s not very practical oh wait it’s so he can see her in the distance as he sings Evermore (my heart!)
  • Speaking of, Evermore was so dramatic™ I loved it
  • Stanley’s reaction to being wardrobed
  • The servants changing back (and the heart attack I almost had with Chip)
  • The way the castle changed as the rising sun hit the different sections (I miss the glitter magic but this worked nicely)
  • The beard line (again, almost made it in the original so a nice touch to have it here)
  • The village being called Villeneuve (reference to Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve who wrote the original fairy-tale!)
  • The entire aesthetic really
  • Celine Dion and Josh Groban <3
  • Alan Menken’s score, oh boy had I missed his music!

Basically being such a big fan of the original only made me love it more. It feels like they added certain things specifically for Disney nerds. And it also feels like they had fun making it? I really was not expecting to love it was much as I did. I wasn’t expecting to like it at all really, so it was a nice surprise 🥀

Interesting Tidbits from the Director’s Commentary for “Kubo and the Two Strings”

1. Kubo’s eye is indeed missing. It’s gone.

2. The monkey netsuke is a family heirloom.

3. Sariatu is holding her power in reserve for the day she’ll have to protect Kubo. That’s why her health and mental state are continuously deteriorating. 

4. Kameyo is Kubo’s one friend in town. His one friend. 

5. Kubo’s hair is actual human hair combined with silicone.

6. Puppets sweat. The silicone’s oils seep out of the surface under the heat of the lights. They have to be patted down occasionally.

7. Kubo was born in the Beetle Clan Castle.

8. When the Moon King attacked Hanzo’s fortress, he was aided not only by the Sisters, but also by his own army.

9. The Moon Beast’s design is supposed to be evocative of the constellations in the sky.

10. Confirmed: The villagers do indeed love Kubo.

11. The little images that appear in the margins of the end credits are meant to make it feel as if Kubo’s story is an old myth.

12. “Kubo is meant to be something of an Orpheus figure – a boy gifted with divine music who could coax rocks and trees to dance with the beauty of his work.”

BLUE LION HEADCANONS
  • Blue does crazy stunts on autopilot sometimes just for the shits and giggles, scaring the living crap out of Lance making him think there’s some malfunction
  • One day they heard some explosions in the Castle and they came from Blue’s hangar. When Allura and the others went to check, there were stains of laser beams on the floor and walls and Blue was turned to a corner seeming extremely confused, lifting her front paws as if looking for something
    • Turns out it was just that Lance got a laser tag somewhere and was hidden on a higher level pranking Blue who had even shot her laser beams at the red spot of light trying to catch it
    • Red makes fun of Blue for being fooled so easily - turns out to be the next victim when Lance records a ticker and leaves it playing stuck behind Red’s ear while the Lion was in sleep mode and almost falls out of his hiding place trying to hold back the laughter as he watches Keith enter the hangar running and yelling at Red who’s a nervous wreck “WHY ARE YOU SCREAMING IN MY MIND TO GET EVERYONE OUT OF THE CASTLE, WE RAN A SCAN AND THERE’S NO BOMB IN HERE, RED, WHAT THE FUCK, ARE YOUR HEARING SYSTEMS DAMAGED OR WHAT”
  • Blue sleepwalks
    • Seriously, Shiro once went to check on Black and almost had a heart attack when Blue stepped out of her hangar, stared at him for like 10 seconds with her eye lights very low, then stepped back and hit her head against the wall twice before just lying down and shutting off again
  • #Lance'sBFF
  • “I love my human boy so much, don’t you dare talking bad of him or you’ll be singing ‘Let It Go’ so frozen you’ll be after I blast you to outer space with my Ice Ice Baby”
  • Blue managed to actually talk to Lance in his mind instead of just sending him ideas way before everyone else
    • He almost shitted his pants that day because he thought he was losing his mind or someone was brainwashing him
    • Turns out Blue thought it was a good idea to have a prank be their first talk ever. Because bonding. She chose a random female voice she picked up from his memories through their connection as Lion and Paladin and it was actually his mother’s voice, cue his panic when he heard it
  • Lance fell asleep in Blue’s cockpit once so she just lifted her barrier and called it a day
    • He almost panicked later when Blue was so deep in sleep mode she just wouldn’t wake up as he tried everything insisting he ‘needed to go’
  • Blue gets distracted way too easily whenever Lance’s piloting her. If he’s not paying attention either, they’ll just collide against stuff on their way because BLUE WON’T REALLY PAY ATTENTION unless if Lance focuses enough to make her focus too
  • The day Blue showed Lance where her aux cord was located was the day when Voltron’s Transformation Sequence changed forever
    • Shiro: FORM VOLTRON!
      Lance: YES I ALWAYS WANTED TO DO THIS *Plays the Power Rangers Theme during the entire sequence*
      Keith: Lance what the fuck
    • Blue thinks the song is catchy btw
    • The other time he played the Attack On Titan theme and Pidge couldn’t stop laughing for some reason
Beauty and the Beast 2017 is a remake done RIGHT

ive felt the overwhelming need to rave about beauty and the beast since i saw it a few days ago. **SPOILERS**

lets begin from the start


  • it would’ve been hard to go wrong with cast members like Emma Watson, Josh Gad, etc. i had extremely high hopes and was not disappointed
  • Dan Stevens (beast) deserves some appluase for being able to wear that amazingly ridiculous makeup in the opening scene (i fucking loved it)
  • the question of how the hell this village that is within a days ride of the enchanted castle is completely oblivious to its existence is explained
  • they give Gaston a reason to be so creepily obsessed with Belle. i mean that doesn’t justify his behavior at all, but still. he’s just come back from a war and is clearly still exhibiting behavior (violence, dominance, desire) that are products of being at war.  
  • LEFOU !!!!!, i knew i would love Josh Gad in this role. “but she’s so well-read and you’re so….athletically inclined” 
  • they didn’t alter the core story/plotpoints from the original but instead, added some amazing content that really fills many of the holes from the original and more. 
  • Emma Watson’s portrayal of Belle is just phenomenal, she keeps the essence of the character while fleshing out some things that Belle sort of had (defiance, courage, wit) that were only hinted at in the original. 
  • We get a pretty plausible reason for the absence of Belle’s mother, and it explains why Maurice is a little bit odd. 
  • BEAST HAS A REASON FOR IMPRISONING MAURICE. its a stupid one. but at least its something. it always bothered me in the original that Beast locked Maurice up for no apparent reason other than the fact Maurice trespassed (to escape horrible weather mind you) and sat in his favorite chair???? at least here its because Maurice steals a rose (i said it wasn’t a very good reason). i also believe this concept is from the ORIGINAL story written by the french novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve (don’t quote me on that though)
  • MAURICE HAS AN ACCURATE REACTION (RUNNING OUT TERRIFIED) TO FINDING OUT OBJECTS IN THE CASTLE CAN MOVE AND TALK 
  • Ewan McGregor and Ian McKellan don’t need explanation for being amazing. (someone better invent immortality before Sir Ian McKellan meets his fate)
  • Belle is badass, she TRICKS her father so that she can take his place because she fucking loves him so goddamn much
  • Belle also has an accurate reaction to objects being able to move and talk. throwing a stool at them.
  • the question of HOW the fUCK Belle got Beast up onto Philippe after the wolf attack on her own is finally solved (thank god that even bothered me as a child)
  • we are told why the servants care for Beast so much even though he’s kinda dickwad AND we are told why he’s such a dickwad, not just cause he that’s who he is but because his father fucked him up
  • Belle knows about the spell. not how to break it, but she knows that it exists and she knows that a human is behind all the anthropormorphic objects and Beast which makes it A LOT less weird that she falls in love with Beast. In the original, she knows the castle is enchanted but she has no idea about the spell so it’s kinda weird she falls in love with (what she thinks) is just a freak of nature. 
  • BEAST HAS A PERSONALITY AND ITS BEAUTIFUL AND SNARKY AND I LOVE IT HE TRIES TO BEFRIEND PHILIPPE ITS ADORABLE
  • for some reason, it feels as if Belle in Beast know each other for a lot longer in the remake than the original which is nice. 
  • i will now take the time to rave about the music. it’s beautiful. the original songs are gorgeous and everything they added to them (altered words and such) make them better. i havent stopped listening to the soundtrack
  • all newly composed songs are so good and fantastic additions
  • EVERMORE (song sung by Beast when Belle is freed from him) HAD ME SOBBING, HIS VOICE PENETRATED MY SOUL
  • Maurice and Belle are badass as fuck, i swear, partners in crime getting themselves out of the carriage so that Belle can go warn Beast. i died when Maurice just casually handed the asylum guy the picked lock. 
  • BELLE RIDES WITH PURPOSE YAS
  • of course i have to note i was all for the gay lefou storyline

i feel as though i have probably missed some things but that about sums up my thoughts. I could go on about the technical side of it and commend the amazing CGI but that’s a whole other story that would just make this post longer than it already is. 

i was so hesitant about remakes when Disney started doing them, but if the rest of them can be to this caliber - sign me up. 

LeFou being gay wasn’t treated as a joke!!! He is questioning Gaston pretty much as soon as Maurice turns up talking about the Beast. He literally questions him to his face and then, after Gaston leaves him during the fight, betrays him and even saves Mrs Potts and helps rid the castle of the attackers! And at the end he dances with a man, and he’s happy, guys! He’s not mourning Gaston, he’s accepted into the castle and is happily dancing with a man! And not in a jokey way! And the man wasn’t wearing a dress contrary to popular belief, if he was then it clearly came off because they are both just two men on the dance floor. Yes, LeFou is quite campy but the director and many actors are gay so I’m going to go by the information that they weren’t making him campy in an offensive way but to make him more of a fun loving character!

I tried oops

These are kinda rushed but I really wanted @lovelylangst to feel better as soon as possible, so hopefully these are okay ^^;

KLANGST

-Normally tiffs between the two end when either Shiro or Allura put their foot down, but sometimes Lance can’t help but keep pushing Keith’s buttons.

-Keith has had previous anger issues which had wormed their way out while he was living in the desert, but have made their way back after meeting Lance.

-Keith, in need of something to say, says “I bet you couldn’t keep quiet for five minutes!” Which Pidge jokingly adds on “I don’t think he even knows the definition of quiet.”

-Lance is never one to back down from a challenge;)

-But our blue boy is a little hurt by Pidge’s comment.

-Things take a turn for the worse when-

-Lance, wanting to prove he knows the definition of quiet, keeps absolutely silent throughout a whole mission (he thought about just turning his com of, but he isn’t a cheater); by doing this, Lance can’t call for help when some Galra Soldiers attack. The soldiers keep asking him where Voltron is, and where the Castle of Lions is located, but Lance refuses to answer (now for the sake of keeping his team and the princess safe instead of giving the team the silent treatment) The Galra quickly become annoyed and basically put Lance’s throat beneath their boot, putting more and more pressure on his throat the longer Lance keeps silent. After Lance finally returns to the castle where everyone is waiting, he is quickly yelled at by not only Shiro but also Keith(“Stop being such a kid, Lance! It doesn’t fucking matter if you know how to be quiet or not!”) only after Keith finishes yelling is when he realizes that ‘Oh shit, Lance is hurt’ and Lance is quickly placed into a pod. When Lance is released from the pod, they find that the damage done to his vocal cords could not be reversed, leaving Lance to live his life without his voice. The news really hits Keith hard, making him tear up and-“I’m so sorry, it’s all my fault. If I hadn't… god, Lance. I love your voice…”


KLANGST

When Keith was young and being moved into and out of houses, his mind made up an imaginary friend with no name. All he knows is that this friend was his first crush and love, but when he gets older, he finally starts to notice that the unknown friend is something he made up and he forgets about him.
After moving in with Shiro and Allura, and their adopted daughter Pidge, he meets Lance at the high school; who looks and acts exactly like his imaginary friend.


KLANGST

-Keith and Lance both are crushing on each other, but are oblivious to the others feelings.

-Keith hadn’t ever really felt attraction to somewhere before, so he is scared he caught a weird space flu since his tummy feels like it has butterflies in it and he always feels hot and sweaty whenever he is alone with Lance.

-Lance has fallen in love one too many times and is afraid to tell Keith, since they’re already fighting purple furries and are super stressed as it is (plus he is sure Shiro would kill him if he hurt Keith’s feelings)

-Keith goes to Hunk for advice on his space flu, and only gets sent away with cookies and a reminder to tell Lance how he feels around him. Keith was going to, but of course the castle is suddenly under attack.

-And of coURSE LANCE GETS HURT.

-AND SO HE HAS TO STAY IN THE PODS AND KEITH THINKS HE NEEDS A POD TOO BECAUSE HE FEELS LIKE HIS HEART IS GOING FASTER THAN A RUSSIAN RACE HORSE.

-I actually don’t have anything else for this prompt.

Beauty and the Beast AU

I really liked the idea of doing a Carry On Beauty and the Beast AU after seeing the movie. After seeing @ace-artemis-fanartist do this AMAZING fanart AU version I decided to go for it! Let me know if your interested in this becoming chaptered :) The next chapters are available here: 2 3

Simon

The castle loomed darkly against the grey sky, a shadowy figure in the crisp wilderness. Simon shivered lightly in the cold weather, rubbing his arms against the wind. He wasn’t sure why he had come here; it wasn’t like he actually owed his father anything. But he had tracked him to this desolate place and felt the familiar need to keep his father close to him.

His footsteps crunching in the snow were the only audible sound. The place was incredibly eerie, even if it was beautiful. He had no idea what his father was doing in a place like this or why he hadn’t reached out to him. But it seemed dangerous; Simon’s magic swirled close to the surface of his skin.

As he reached the doorway he paused. Something told him that once he entered this place he would not come back the same. If he wanted to, he could walk away, let his father conduct his strange business in this creepy castle, and return to life in the village. Agatha was waiting for him there with a thousand promises in her brown eyes. There were a million reasons for him to walk away.

He took a deep breath and pushed the heavy doors open. His heart beat rapidly as he waited for something to jump out at him. As the seconds ticked by though, he noticed that the entryway was empty. With a frown, he stepped through the threshold. 

The room was dank, as if it hadn’t seen sunlight in many years. As he stepped further into the castle he noticed a large sitting area to his left. Seemingly on its own accord, the fireplace lit up with bright orange flames. Simon jumped back a step and put his hand over the hilt of his sword. But nobody attacked him from behind the large fireplace. 

Simon had been raised around magic his whole life, loved it even, yet he felt there was something wrong about this place. It was as if the castle dripped in something heavy, a kind of twisted magic hung in the air. 

“Look Niall! I told you he would come!” He heard someone hiss behind him.

Simon froze, trying to appear as if he hadn’t heard the voice.

“Oh, shut up Dev!” Another voice whispered.

Simon whipped around, sure that he would discover who was speaking and found himself utterly confused. Behind him, on the stairs, lay a clock and candelabra, as if left there by mistake. 

“What in Merlin…” Simon muttered.

The place was starting creep him out. Figuring it would be useful in the dark space, Simon picked up the candelabra and started up the grand staircase. The castle was obviously quite large and, in its own eerie way, very grand; but Simon could not understand what it was doing in the middle of the woods. Had his father, deluded by his own power, built a castle in forested isolation to pretend to be king? Simon had to admit that it was not that big of a stretch for his father. It didn’t, however, explain the strange whispering. Or the dark magic.

He found a corridor off to his left and walked up the stone steps, knowing that his father had a tendency to seek high ground. Eventually it became clear that he was in the dungeons of the castle, something that would normally cause him to go back to the main staircase. But he couldn’t shake the feeling that he was getting closer to his father with every step. Eventually he turned a corner and found the one cell that wasn’t empty in the vast tower.

In the corner his father lay balled up, his green cloak stained by the water dripping from the stone ceiling. Simon drew in an audible breath. Stirred by the noise, David Snow turned and looked at his son, his eyes blank. Then he jumped out of his slumped position and threw himself at the bars.

“Oh my son! My son! Thank Merlin you’ve found me!”

“Father…what happened to you?”

His father’s eyes shifted to look behind him.

“I was looking for something in the woods…I got lost. Eventually I found this place and decided to rest here for a bit. But Simon, my boy, there’s something terrible in this place.”

Simon glanced around him.

“Yeah I know. I can feel the dark magic here.”

“No!” His father yelled, grabbing Simon’s jacket through the bars, “You don’t understand! There’s a thing here, an evil creature! He’s the one who locked me up!”

Simon wondered if his father had hit his head.

“I’m sure he was a horrible man if he could do something like this to you father, but let’s not get carried away.”

His father’s eyes widened and his face went white. Weakly, he let go of Simon and backed away from him, his eyes focused on something behind Simon. His legs began to shake.

“Not a man…” His father trailed off.

Simon felt a chill run down his spine.

“A beast.”

Simon whipped around and came face to face with his father’s captor. He was taller than Simon, enough so to loom over him. His skin was as grey as the sky outside the castle, and his eyes were the same color, if not a little stormier. His hair was jet black and wild about his face, as if he hadn’t cut it in years. All of this, strange as it was, was still human enough. 

But the fangs, the horrible, sharp fangs that protruded from his dark red lips were undoubtedly beastly.  His expression matched the cruelness of his appearance, a mask of pure and utter rage. 

Simon did not know what to call this person, as he somehow had ascertained the creature in front of him was indeed a person. His sword was already drawn, but he had the sinking feeling it would do little against the menacing man in front of him.

“You dare take up a sword against me? In my own home?” The man hissed.

Simon swallowed loudly.

“I-I didn’t mean to offend you. It’s just that you…well, you surprised me.”

The man studied him.

“Well?”

“Well what?” Simon said.

“Well why haven’t you put your sword down yet? Seeing as you only drew out of bewilderment.” 

Simon deliberated. Putting down the sword meant relinquishing his best weapon and left him vulnerable. But keeping it drawn would likely make the man attack. Slowly he sheathed his sword. 

“There,” Simon said.

The man sneered.

“What are you doing in my castle? I don’t like trespassers.”

Simon clenched his jaw.

“I wasn’t trying to trespass. My father went missing a few days ago and I tracked him here. I didn’t realize the castle was occupied by you.”

The man snarled loudly.

“So you’re the son of this disgusting excuse of a man?”

Simon growled back at him.

“How dare you talk about my father like that!” Simon yelled.

The man threw him up onto the bars in a rush, barely exerting himself. Simon had been right to assume that the man was unnaturally strong. He felt his breath rush out of him against the force of the blow. 

“Your father tried to slit my throat in my sleep.”

Simon wanted to deny it, to say his father would never be capable of such a thing, but he knew that he couldn’t. Unfortunately, Simon could very well imagine his father doing just that sort of thing. The man waited for Simon to defend his father and when it was clear he wouldn’t, set Simon down.

“Simon,” His father whimpered, “He’s a monster! I only thought I was doing the right thing!”

The man laughed darkly.

“Is that so? Is stuffing your bag with dozens of my possessions doing the right thing?”

Simon looked down. His father was not a good man, Simon knew this already, but he was the only family he had left. Whether he liked it or not, he would need to break his father out of the castle.

In a flash Simon had his wand out and pointed at the monstrous man’s throat. He was prepared to say a spell when the man laughed raucously. Simon paused, his mouth hanging open in confusion.

“Going to cast a spell are you? I don’t think you’ll have much luck with that.”

Simon realized that although he could feel his magic, he couldn’t tap into it.

“Why…what’s wrong with this place?

The man pulled back his upper lip to expose more of his fangs. It was truly a terrible sight, an image that made fear run up the length of Simon’s body.

“It’s cursed. Like me.”

“What are you?” Simon whispered. 

Something flitted across the man’s expression, too quick for Simon to decipher. As quickly as it had come, the look left the man’s expression and was replaced by cold disinterest.

“Enough questions. Your father will spend the rest of his life rotting in this cell; I don’t care what you think about it. He committed treason as far as I’m concerned. “

Simon sagged in defeat. The smart move would be to respectfully apologize on behalf of his father and to leave. It was in his best interest to leave his father, and this mysterious man, behind him forever. After all, his father had committed horrible crimes; he deserved to be here.

“I know,” Simon started, “That what my father did was despicable.”

His father moaned weakly in his cell.

“But,” Simon continued, through gritted teeth, “I cannot simply leave him here. I have no hope of beating you in a fight without my magic and I don’t wish for my family name to cause any more violence in your home.”

The man frowned.

“And so?”

“And so…” Simon trailed off, “Punish me instead.”

The man’s eyes widened. From behind him he could hear his father shrieking with happiness. Simon closed his eyes, trying to quell the pain in his chest. 

“You would take your father’s place?”

Simon felt his father grab his leg through the bars. He was kissing Simon’s calf.

“Thank you my son. Oh. Bless you. I won’t forget this.”

Simon’s throat hurt.

“Yes, I will take his place.”

The man pointed in disgust to his father, who was crying in happiness on his hands and knees.

“You would sacrifice your entire life? For a coward like this?”

“Enough questions,” Simon threw the man’s earlier words back at him, “Just let him go and do what you want with me.”

The man glared at him for a minute, as if he was unwilling to accept Simon’s offer. Eventually though, he pushed Simon aside and unlocked the cell door. His father sprang out and ran down the stairs, without a backwards glance at Simon. 

“I’ll come back for you Simon! I swear it,” He heard his father shout out from below.

Simon knew it was a lie. He knew that unless he found some way to escape on his own that he would be stuck here until he died. David Snow was not a good man but he was an even worse father.

The man allowed Simon the dignity of entering the cell on his own as opposed to throwing him in. Keeping eye contact with him, the man closed and locked the cell door.

“Your father is a selfish and cruel man. But you…”

Simon waited for him to continue. With a shake of his head, the man turned away and began to walk down the stone stairway.

“You are a fool.”

With that, the man walked away, leaving Simon completely alone. Sighing, Simon slid down to the floor. He wished he could say that the man was a monster, that he had forced Simon’s hand and treated his father unfairly. But the truth was cruel, and Simon had to bite his lip to stop himself from screaming.

The truth was that his father had deserved what he got.

And the beast had been right; Simon Snow was the biggest fool of all.

@stardreamerlove sent me this amazing prompt for all injured paladins and no working pods and Lance ignoring his injuries to tend to the others until he collapses

Sorry this took so long, love!

It was becoming common knowledge amongst the paladins that they did not do as well in hand-to-hand combat as compared to fighting with their lions. However, in some cases, attacking on foot seemed like a better option than attacking with the lions. 

They had come across a small Galra base on an abandoned planet. They wanted to try and find out any plans for the main Galra ship, so they decided to attack on foot while the castle hovered nearby in case of necessary assistance.

They had plotted and planned for two days, but when the day to attack came, they had quickly realized that they severely underestimated the amount of Galra in the base.

The fight was brutal; there were Galra at every corner, but whether it was sheer force or will, the paladins somehow won– but not without injury. They, as well as the castle, took a severe beating, especially Lance.

Beauty and the Beast & The French Revolution

Shortly after Belle & Adam’s wedding, the Reign of Terror begins in France. While the population of Villeneuve holds no grudges against their recently remembered Prince and newfound Princess, what with their generous and just leadership style, the revolutionaries in Paris have quite different views. To them, Adam & Belle represent everything that they hate and are no different than Louis XVI & Marie Antoinette.

In the dead of night, the revolutionaries storm the village and mount a mob using their ever-so-persuasive “if you’re not with us, then you’re against us!” strategy. Anyone who failed to aid in the plundering of the castle would be deemed sympathizers and lose their heads, as well - and that included those who were employed and lived there. 

When LeFou brings word to the castle of the impending attack, Adam and Cogsworth have varying opinions on what aught to be done. Adam, still attempting to make up for everything that he put his staff - his family - through, feels that they should flee. Cogsworth, ever the militant, feels they should stay and fight for what is theirs. But Adam isn’t about to put Belle’s life in danger. Not when merely being married to him had inevitably destined her for the chopping block.

Their window for escape is horribly limited - would they be able to flee to safety in time, or would they all watch everything that they loved burn on the way to the guillotine? 

Sheith HC'S

These are a few of my expansive list of Sheith headcanons because they destroyed my life and I have no self control. Enjoy.

- Shiro fell in love with Keith when they sparred for about the 10th time, and Keith finally won by slamming Shiro into the ground, grabbing his wrist and straddling his hips to hold him down. He was simultaneously scared and turned on.

- Keith doesn’t know when he fell in love with Shiro, because he has loved him for too long.

- Shiro is the sappiest shit when he can and want to be. He’ll call Keith cute nicknames like baby, red, cherrybomb, handsome, darling…

- Shiro has really warm hands and Keith has cold hands. Both are startled everytime they hold hands because of the temperature shock.

- Keith loves every single one of Shiro’s scars. And he loves his arm and his white hair. Sure, these might be painful to Shiro, but to him, it showed that he was stronger than whatever hurt him. It meant that he was back where he belonged (with him), alive and well.

- Keith 👏🏼 loves 👏🏼 Shiro’s 👏🏼 tiddies 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼. He loves groping dem pecs.

- Shiro loves when Keith ties up his hair, because then he can kiss his nape more easily.

- Keith is the epitome of gross. The man burps out loud, forgets to flush sometimes, and clips his nails on his bed. Shiro loves him all the same, even though Lance is intrigued on how.

- That being said, Shiro is also gross, but lowkey. He does stuff like peeing loudly even if Keith hasn’t finished brushing his teeth, scratching his butt when he’s getting cereal (or space goop), and drooling when he sleeps.

- SHIRO SNORES LIKE A TRUCK. Keith wakes him up by sliding his cold hands on his back whenever he starts his rumble. Shiro jolts awake, hissing and leaning away from his touch.

- They both really like astronomy. Sometimes Allura lets them use the planetarium room in the castle to search up constellations, and they love looking at the shining hologram stars together.

- They calm each other down. Shiro soothes Keith’s temper, and Keith helps Shiro with his panic attacks. They each know each other’s triggers, and what to do in case they’re not feeling well.

- Keith’s fingerless gloves were previously Shiro’s.

- They’re not too much of a PDA couple, but when they’re alone of if they reunite after a dangerous mission, it gets to the point where they’re nauseatingly cute.

Idk if this is too long! I mean, if y'all want some more, I’ll gladly post them ❤I just love sheith so much!

warnings: violence 

a/n: I changed this request up a bit just so there was a little more context, feel free to request more beauty and the beast!


Four months.

Four months you had been prisoner at this castle.

Well you weren’t truly a prisoner.

You were free to roam the castle, you had made friends with the servants, you had even made friends with the Beast himself.

The only rules?

You can’t leave the grounds and you cannot under any circumstances enter the West Wing.

Well where’s the fun in following rules?

Preference-Defenders React to Your Pain Transferring Powers

A/N: These are the characters I am most familiar with and these are the ones I think I can write best. If in future preferences you want me to include other characters let me know and I will do my best to learn about them. 

Matt Murdock(Daredevil):

Originally posted by moan-s

Matt is more concerned with the implications of your powers than the fact that you actually have them. He worries that a lot of people could get killed very easily if they try to confront you. He tries to get you to quit the vigilante life, but you refuse. His insistence get’s very annoying eventually so you have to have a very stern conversation(yelling match) about why he needs to stay out of your business. 

He eventually concedes when you promise over and over again that you’re very careful about which hits you let land. However, despite saying that he’s going to back of, Matt still finds himself in your vigilante territory and awful lot. 

Jessica Jones:

Originally posted by jones-jessica

Jessica isn’t really surprised. She’s seen a lot of crazy stuff and you’re just another person on the list. You’re drinking when she finds out and she’s a little tipsy. She keeps asking you random questions like whether you can get vaccines or get surgery. Half way through the night she insists on toasting your “awesome powers that make you invincible.” The rest of the bar joins along even as you insist that she’s blowing it out of proportion. 

“So can you get drunk? Or does the bartender get drunk?” she asks, leaning a little too close to you. 

“No I can still get drunk. The bartender isn’t trying to hurt me or anything.”

“What about poison? Can you be roofied.” 

“I’m not sure.”

“I hope you don’t find out.” You nudge her drink farther away from her hand. 

“I think you’re done for the night.” 

Luke Cage:

Originally posted by marvelsdefenders

Luke is actually very interested in your powers. When he sees you fighting for the first time he spends the next couple of days thinking about it. The number one thought in his head is that maybe you’re one of the few people who could actually hurt him without the need for fancy high tech equipment. 

One night he catches sight of you running after some bad guys that are running away clutching their stomachs. 

“Hey you!” he yells across the street, his voice carrying in the still air. 

You whip around and stare back at him as the men you were chasing run farther away. You slowly rotate so that you’re fully facing him. You know who Luke Cage is and you know exactly why he’s calling you out in the middle of the night. There’s some unspoken agreement that the fight that’s about to happen isn’t personal and is more of a game than anything real. 

It turns out that your powers cancel each other out. Him punching you only results in a dull pressure in the places he hits. He can throw you large distances, but you’ve come to expect that as your only weakness. When you punch him it’s like punching a brick wall, but it doesn’t actually hurt. An hour after the fight starts you both stand in front of each other breathing hard. 

“It was nice to meet you Luke Cage.” you say. He nods and the two of you part ways not knowing that you’ll be on the same team soon. 

Danny Rand(Iron Fist):

Originally posted by theavengers

Ever since you joined the Defenders Danny has been pestering you about sparring with him. He claims it would be a bonding experience. So that the two of you could become familiar with each other’s fighting technique. You think it’s a little strange that he’d want to spar with you when every hit he lands will only hurt him, but you go along with it. He’s been a Defender longer than you so he must know what he’s doing. 

Only two minutes into the spar Danny is on the ground clutching his chest. 

“Did you seriously not know what my abilities were. You had to agree with everyone else to even let me into your group.” 

You extended a hand and helped the man up. “Matt, Luke and Jessica all loved you so much. I couldn’t just say no. But hey that’s a pretty neat power.” For someone who just received a punch to the chest only Iron Fist could dole out, Danny seemed very excited. 

“Let’s go again. This time I’m ready.” 

Frank Castle(The Punisher):

Originally posted by calif0rnia-lovers

Frank is unfortunate enough to find out about your powers the hard way. You try to get in the middle of his newest mob boss hunt and he is not happy about it. He’s been stalking this guy for weeks, waiting for the time to attack and rid the Earth of his kidnapping, smuggling, black mailing ass. Right before he can take the shot, you jump out at the mob boss and scatter his lackeys. 

While you’re tying the mobster up, Frank marches towards you like a bulldozer that is absolutely not going to stop. 

“The hell are you doing?” He yells stepping right up to and grabbing a chunk of your shirt in his hand. 

“Taking down a mob boss and stopping you from killing more people. I think it’s a win-win,” 

“I’ve given you a break the past few times you’ve gotten in my way, but if you don’t cut it out you’re going to get hurt.” 

“You can try.” 

He takes your challenge seriously and you end up pummeling the Punisher. By the end of it he’s lying on the ground chuckling to himself. 

“Didn’t know you were some kinda voodoo person.” 

“Maybe you should have learned a little more about me before going all out.” 

You feel a little bad about beating him so badly so you take him out to dinner afterwards. The two of you continue to subtly threaten each other as you eat pancakes and drink coffee. This is not the end of you and the Punisher butting heads. 

Foggy Nelson:

Originally posted by ffrankcastle

You and Foggy are eating dinner at the office in silence. Out of the corner of your eye you can see Foggy glancing at you repeatedly. 

“What’s up?” you ask wiping the food off your fingers. 

“So you’re part of Matt’s super crime fighting force right?”

You chuckle. “The Defenders? Yes I am.”

“So what’s your power?” he asks pointing his plastic knife at you. 

“Basically if someone tried to stab me, they would actually stab themselves.” Foggy stares at you in silence with his mouth slightly open. 

“I thought that the bullet proof guy was the coolest out of you guys, but I think that’s a little better.” 

“Wow. I’m so flattered,” you joke taking another bite. 

Karen Page:

Originally posted by akamatthewmurdock

It takes Karen a long time to process exactly what’re telling her. She was shocked enough to find out that Matt is the feared Daredevil, but now she had to accept the fact that another one of her friends was essentially unkillable. 

She is very appreciative that you told her of your own free will instead of her finding out by accident. She’s very curious about the extend of your powers and she wants to ask a lot of questions, but she restrains herself. She let’s herself ask a few questions every now and then, but those questions only lead to more and more questions.
