beauty in the flesh

anonymous asked:

dark rc would you please consider writing about how victor (and the rest of the Russian skate team) had a feud with the Russian hockey team bc of their constant flirting and attentions towards yuuri (who was completely oblivious at the war waging for his heart)??

This has been sitting in my inbox for over a month and I apologize for that, nonny! I wanted to try my hand at breaking through this writer’s block and this prompt was ripe for the taking. It’s not my best work by any stretch, but it’s something at least! I hope you enjoy.

There are few things that give Yuri pleasure—the taste of accomplishment like cinnamon sugar on the back of his tongue after landing a quad; having a comeback so cutting that he practically draws blood; that soft murrf a cat makes when it decides it trusts him; the little green screenshot arrow appearing next to Otabek’s name in Snapchat—but they all pale in comparison to whenever the Russian hockey team visits the rink.

♡ The Signs As Lovers Of Greek Myth: Poetry ♡

ARIESAphrodite, The Goddess Of Love & Ares, The God Of War: 

“I am made of war and she is made of love but what makes war, if not love?”

TAURUS: Orpheus, The Musician & Eurydice, The Oak Nymph:

“She was everything. A world with hope, a taste of the divine. My home was empty, she was gone, forever. But I would find her in all things, in hooded sun, in the name-whispering breeze scented with her perfume, in the dreamless darkness in which she walked.”

GEMINI: Echo, The Nymph Of Mountains & Narcissus, The Thespian Hunter:

“Shall the water not remember, my hand’s slow gesture, tracing above its mirror my, half-imaginary portrait? My only belonging is my beauty, which I take away and then return as love.”

CANCER: Selene, The Titan Moon Goddess & Endymion, The Shepard Prince:

“She was beautiful beyond men’s prayers for beauty, and she drew her silvery flesh out of the starlit air and her cold sweetness from the midnight dew. Virginal was she, loveliest, austere with visible purity. A godlike love swathed her soft shape in plumes of snow-white flame”

LEO: Helen Of Troy & Paris, The Trojan Prince:

“He looked at her as if she were the sun. One look like that can ruin or rescue, depending on which fairy tales you read, and she had read them all. Eyes like those could never lie, she thought, so when he looked at her, she saw all the devastation he would cause in her name, and all the inevitability of their demise, and all the women who chose peace over passion. To hell with peace. I want a lover like a hurricane or a lightning strike. Love should leave no survivors. So you will be my Paris, and I will be your ship to wreck.”

VIRGO: Odysseus, King Of Ithaca & Penelope, The Faithful Wife:

“Long as the day in the summer time, Deep as the wine dark sea, I’ll keep your heart with mine. Till you come to me.”

LIBRA: Pygmalion, The Sculptor & Galatea, The Statue:

“He slid his arm around the coolness of disdain, felt the distance of an Arctic plain, Rested his hand Upon an alabaster thigh, Saw eternal haughtiness in stony eyes. Human heart has he; She heart of stone - To tempt a man to be so close, but always so alone.”

SCORPIO: Eros, The God Of Love & Psyche, The Goddess Of The Soul:

“He would pluck the feathers from his shoulders, Set flames upon his bow, Drain celestial blood from his veins and become her equal, If that is what it took to deserve her; To share that grin one last time. Curse the gods, If he could only worship the light upon the pores of her skin.”

SAGITTARIUS: Perseus, Son Of Zeus & Andromeda, Princess Of Aethiopia:

“Who decided to call these chains? who said i was forced into who holds me? the rock i sit on is a throne of my choosing; the monster i’m to meet is a friend remembered; Perseus, i choose the water. Perseus, i choose salvation. Because at least this, i can say; the waves have never silenced me the way you always have”

CAPRICORN: Hades, God Of The Underworld & Persephone, Goddess Of Spring:

“He crept into her heart, seeking to devour her, but he was the one consumed”

AQUARIUS: Pyramus, The Handsome Youth & Thisbe, The Beautiful Maiden:

“My Sunset had been darkly beautiful, Asplash with deep reds and purple, crowned in gold. Oh that I had been Pyramus and she Thisbe. Star-crossed and Tragic, A love made eternal by mutual deaths”

PISCES: Leander, The Mortal & Hero, The Virgin Priestess:

“Love is not full of pity, as men say, But deaf and cruel where he means to prey. And now she wished this night were never done, And sighed to think upon th'approaching sun; For much it grieved her that the bright day-light Should know the pleasure of this blessed night, And them, like Mars and Ericyne, display, Both in each other’s arms chained as they lay.”

iasip cast ranked from most to least benevolent

1. danny devito: 4 foot 10, egg with legs, hates donald trump

2. rob mcelhenney: really trying, regularly outdoes macklemore as the best ally whose name starts with “mackle”

3. charlie day: instagram isn’t private

4. kaitlin olson: life-ruiningly beautiful, likes the smell of burning human flesh 

5. glork: doesn’t actually exist, tried to sell me meth behind a whole foods

A thread to hold

Summary: Phil wanted a sensible life, a fireplace and a picket fence, and Dan was a wrecking ball he could simply no longer afford to keep around. But once you care for someone, it never really goes away, a constant thread between the two of them. Divorced!Phan with custody over a child. Angst and Fluff.

Trigger Warnings: depression, panic attacks, alcohol, divorce

Author’s Note: Honestly this fic has been in the works for a very long time, it’s my child, and I wrote it during many different periods of my life which is why it flits between happy and sad, I’m sorry but I hope you enjoy it!

Excerpt: Phil opened the door, his hair stuck up just a little at the back, and one of his sleeves pushed up, the other falling over his hand. Fuck. The same sinking feeling in his stomach. Always the same. Because Phil was still breath-taking to him, despite the projected feelings and the ink stained tears that hid in the crevices of his face. He was still breath-taking. And not just because of his looks, of his gentle tilt of the head and his bright blue eyes which seemed to reach inside of him (you could go swimming in those eyes). But because it was him, because he was gentle and kind and warm and he was Phil.

dark

her beauty isn’t in her flesh, but the way she casts her shadow—asks me to press my lips on the nape of her neck; i capture the slight cloudiness behind her eyes, suffuse it with my words, only to let it evaporate; she dreams about my face, never sees it, fails to explain her theory, i reject nothing; a fragment of her is without light, like raindrops seeping through soil, there is no becoming, halcyon; she burns candles when we get back—they melt into her elegant, iris night.

Haven’t posted anything in a while, so here’s a new oc I made a month or so ago!!

Her name is Scarlet, she’s a famous singer/model who enjoys playing video games in her spare time. She’s very sweet and kind-hearted, and can get weepy very easily. She’s currently living with her younger sister Arabella, who moved in with Scarlet when her life took a huge turn.
