could you describe how it feels to be in love? thank you dearest :)
It is like swimming in the bluest waters of the Mediterranean and cutting your foot on a rock. Sharp and brutal, real, a raw wound. Every time I think of him I think also: how can I be living through such beauty and such anguish at once? I remember his eyes the most (“whose eyes smell of the sound of rain”) but also his smile, the way he moves through the night, the way the night moves around him. Sweet, painful, as tender as the interiors of a lychee. I looked at him under the cherry blossoms and we melted into the mist.
i can feel this monumental rift a shift in my tides there is a continental divide from where my heart used to stand and where i am today. this plate like tectonics has led me straight to a new beginning, i’m forming mountains to move mountains to be closer to you. when i am with you i could never fear an impending distaster, there is no thunderstorm that could wash away my feelings for you. you take me to places that are more spectacular than any landscape, any ocean, anywhere i have ever been. i feel like i am floating across the bluest waters, on a cloud higher than everest or kilamanjaro. this is a peak i never want to come down from, you are a tidal wave crashing into me, and i know that together we will create our own island of light.
It’s a pretty cool feeling when you get to step into a desktop screensaver.
Dreaming of blissed out days spent plunging into the bluest, greenest, most mineralized water I’ve ever seen. The
trek out to Havasupai Falls was surely that…a trek. Four swollen
hips, blisters under blisters and the near death of a pinky toe were
more than worth it. I haven’t had a less than pleasant experience with
you yet, @abuteuxfultone Only next time we’ll bring more water 😜
Request: one where the reader, who has lost her memories, is a new employee at DC Studios. She works in the Archives that hold all the original comic manucripts. One day she finds a old, unpublished story about Jason where he has a girlfriend, who at the end disapearing in a magic explosion that erases all evidence that she ever existed. This girlfriend has the same name and looks as the reader and the manuscript dated the same day the reader was found after losing her memories.
The buzzing silence along with the darkness filled your ears and head once again. You shot your eyes open and headed to your bathroom, where you threw water on your face. You were left to stare at your reflection in the mirror; your eyes were bloodshot, your lips chapped and your hair looked like a rat nest.
You had to do a lot before you could go to work but thank god your insomnia wouldn’t let you sleep. You walked slowly to your kitchen, while scratching your scalp with your small fingers and proceeded to make a coffee.
Something killed you. You didn’t know what, but it killed you. A space in your heart ate you alive. You didn’t know the reason and you certainly wouldn’t try to find it while caffeine hadn’t entered your system.
Your head still buzzed after you took a shower, and surprisingly even more, after you took some painkillers. This had never happened; painkillers always stopped your bad headaches. Even if your head was burning and even when it seemed heavy to you.
Today it was another rainy day. Today was another rainy day in New York, in your cold apartment, that you never felt that it was yours.
It was so funny because sometimes you wished you’d never see the present day again. You wanted to go back in the past, to figure out why you didn’t remember. Who were your parents? Weren’t they alive? And if they were, why hadn’t they reached out to you yet?
Did you have someone? Had you ever loved? Had you ever been loved?
You sighed as you snapped back in reality. Your coffee was cold; you had been zoning out for good, you thought. You stood up from the kitchen table and hooked your fingers under your white tank top. By the time your reached your room, you were holding both pieces of your pijamas in your hands. You threw them on the bed with as much force as you could and opened your closet to find a black pencil dress.
You wore it, right after you put some tights on, to keep your legs warm and walked quickly to your bathroom.
It was as simple as it could get now; brush your teeth, fix your hair, put some make up on. Your job required a proper attire.
The wheels of your car made a sliding sound as you parked to your usual parking spot and you got grabbed on the steering wheel, squeezing it so tight that your knuckles turned white. Inside, you feared a car accident would occur to you again and you’d lose the few memories you had created in all these months.
You used your umbrella to keep the rain away from your fixed hair. It wasn’t a long walk to the main door of the building, but you stopped some meters before you got in and looked up at the familiar Symbol.
You couldn’t help but sigh. Ever since they called you some months ago, asking if you would like to continue working there, more questions popped in your mind.
Why did you need a job? Had you studied? What were you working as?
And mos importantly, why would one name their company Detective Comics Comics?
The usual walk to the elevator was simple as it could get. You greeted some people, that claimed to know you, sighed some more times, wait for the elevator to come and reach to your department, that was merely a story down the main hall.
You greeted your colleagues there too, asking what was your task for the day.
“Today you’re on unpublished stories. I’ll give you some to start scanning!” Mandy, the only friend you had made in all these months, spoke.
“Why, being handed the stories will help a lot! Thanks Mandy!”
She shot you a smile and nodded, her short blond bob jiggling.
“Okay, here you are! These are exclusively Jason Todd stories. I’m taking care of the rest! ” She giggled and slammed a huge pile of Jason comics before your face.
“Thanks” you muttered and gulped at the instant.
“Honey are you okay? You seem like a ghost today! Did you remember anything?”
You shook your head, slowly in denial and she left after she patted your shoulder. She knew not to push more.
It was the end of the day. You might have been working for some extra hours too, as the archive floor was almost empty; in fact, only you, Mandy and three other employees were still left.
You impatiently looked at the clock.
Okay so maybe you’d die in this building. But you had to finish with that last Jason story. Once again the task was simple; you read the comic if you want and then you have to reprint it, so the story will stay unharmed from time.
And maybe this story was interesting.
It was from Red Hood and the Outlaws from the 2011 DC Comics reboot named New 52, and it was set as a standalone one shot as a small gift that went along with the original issue.
You knew it was worth reading, and never understood why it never made it as a print but it was before you now and it was tempting not to read it.
You turned the cover and the story immediately started.
The first image was one of a small bald boy, with olive skin. Blue shines surrounded him, his face covered on a mischievous grin.
Your hair raised at a strange feeling, all this blue around him, feeling familiar.
He was talking to Jason, on how he could save his loved one from his hands. He said, he held her memories and that he needed his to set her free.
Jason was split, and Roy was trying to convince him not to do anything stupid, along with Kor'i.
Your heart throbbed, feeling anxious on what Jason would respond in the next page.
“I need time to think. I’ll be back tomorrow.”
Next few pages showed Jason being comforted by the team. They told him they’d find a way to get his loved one back. That she was safe.
Jason highly doubted that, as he knew what little shit S'aru was. And as he laid on his bed, sleep not bothering to budge him, he muttered a name.
Your eyes shot completely open and vivid memories passed before your eyes as flashes.
The color blue, an intense laugh, a man’s voice calling your name before everything going black. Men falling from the sky. Endless laughing with a family of men. Cries for help. The blue again, and then it was over, as suddenly as it came.
Sweat dropped from your forehead as you turned the pages quickly, barely bothering to read every panel. The situation seemed familiar. Too familiar. And as it couldn’t get any worse you noticed Jason dragging a girl with him with (h/c) hair, that only wore a hospital’s white dress. Roy and Kor'i were running just infront of him, heading to the ship.
“I was there Mandy!” You screamed!
“I was there. I was holding his hand!”
Mandy looked at you with compassion. Maybe you had remembered something from your earlier life, but she was too tired to give you more attention.
hold on he said and fired his gun towards S'aru, who was after him. Your pain was enough to slow him down. He knew this plan would turn out catastrophic. You had two bullets wound and four arrows stuck on your body. All of them from attempts of killing S'aru. I’ll get you home in no-
There was that blur again. This time it stayed for too long in your vision with its dazzling spins and dark dots, its smooth movements as the bluests of waters. As if hypnotizing you.
Then there was a blast.
There was that voice again
And sounds of shooting.
More sweat dripped from your forehead and tears formed in your eyes, your gaze was fixed into space, your lips leaving moans of pain. Images passed and left always flashing in your vision in that shade of blue. That calming blue that looked like water and you wanted to sank in. To give up from your physical pain. You had to follow your path to the past.
You didn’t notice your deafening scream, nor Mandy running to your side as you fell onto the floor, as what seemed like, dead.
The darkness slowly drifted away from your eyes, only to be replaced by a blur. You could not see well for the moment.
The buzzing sound was back, but this time another small sound came along with it. It was a standard mechanical beep. You recognised that sound. This was the room you had woken up when you opened your eyes once before in the hospi-
“KOR'I! HER EYES ARE OPEN! OH MY GOD KOR'IIIII!!” You recognised that voice too, the woman’s red hair also, the masked man that followed her as well.
“(Y/n)?” The man put his mask off and stared at you, with watered eyes.
“Yes! Oh my dear God she’s awake!” He said, tears flowing down his cheeks as he rushed to pull you in his arms, not caring about the needles that pinched your skin.
It was all clear for you know. You remembered being taken by S'aru that night you had been taken to the hospital because you were extremely sick. You remembered him blackmailing Jason. You remembered the blast and everything after it, how you woke up by a call in a hospital, asking if you’d finally go to work, you remembered not being abke to remember anything, having a space eating out your heart. But I was over.
You were home.
You were in Jason’s arms and everything felt real. Even if you were in comma for six months as the guys said, even if S'aru had created a different universe to keep you in so he could take your memories for fun, you were back.
And suddenly the buzz became a bird’s song and the space a heartwarming fire that burnt within you.
I even have a back story for her ID Photo. They were probably on their honeymoon, somewhere in Greece cause Santorini is beautiful and just imagine Zoe in a sun dress (heart eyes). I mean, even as they sail on the bluest of waters with a stunning sunset horizon, Danny’s looking at her like she’s the most important thing in the whole universe. He has to constantly remind himself that it’s real and she’s real.
I have been waiting since day one (since they announced it back on 2013) for this film! So here’s what I think about “Moana” from what we have now, already seen and heard.
It looks so real! Everything! Maui and Moana’s hair! I want to touch it! Maui’s tattoo had me laughing and somehow reminds me of The Muses from “Hercules”. And it’s 2D! I never thought I might see 2D from Disney again! And the ocean, the water is the bluest water I have ever seen and it’s mesmerizing.
LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA! I was already excited for the movie but this just took it on another level! I love Hamilton (too bad I might never see it). And more that a Puerto Rican (like me) is doing the music of the film I was already excited for! And Mark Mancina did music for “The Lion King”, “Tarzan” and “Brother Bear” so I know I’m going to cry (I almost did on the teaser). Sadly, I cannot say anything about Opetaia Foa'i because I have never heard of him but that will change after “Moana”. Now I can’t stop listening to the little music we have. We all know I’m buying the soundtrack.
The Voice Actors
I’m proud of Disney for casting Polynesian people for this film! Dwayne Johnson “The Rock” as Maui is great choice and choosing newcomer Auli'i Cravalho instead of Dinah Jane Hansen from “Fifth Harmony” really impressed me. Auli'i’s life is going to change forever after “Moana”! I know that all of the voice actors from this movie will bring life to their characters.
I already love them! Maui is a character that will bring me laughs but also feels. I somehow can feel it. Pua looks like a combination between Pascal and Momo. Hei Hei is sorta off like Momo too with his crazy antics on how he acted for that second. And finally, Moana. I know she will be my favorite Disney character (sorry Lilo!). She looks she’s headstrong, a little rebel, loving hearted person who will do anything for her village. I can’t say much because we don’t know them that well but this all I can say and I know there are more but we only know bits from them.
Little is known but it looks like it will be an exploration story. Like “Brother Bear”, “Treasure Planet”, “Hercules”, etc. And I love stories like these! But most of all, it’s not a love story! Yes! You heard right! “Moana” is not going to be a love story! I’m super happy about this!
In the end, Moana will probably be my favorite Disney movie and princess (sorry Mulan!). I’m definitely buying merchandise and I will see it on English and Spanish (I never watch the Spanish versions of movies but “Moana” is about to change that for me). A lot of Disney fans are saying that “Zootopia” is “The Lion King” of this generation and that “Moana” will be “Pocahontas”. Let’s all hope that’s not true. I know that Moana is Polynesian but for the first time ever, I can finally say that I look like a Disney princess! She has my hair, my lips, my skin tone (Moana has it a bit darker) and my body! I thank Disney for allowing this project to move on. I just can’t wait for November 24 (we get new movies on Thursdays in Puerto Rico since Moana is releasing on a Wednesday)!
The bluest water you have ever seen – that is what the Molalla River is famous for. Come visit the natural treasure just southeast of Portland for amazing hiking, fishing, wildlife viewing – and yes, swimming, too!
The Molalla River Trail System is an extensive network of more than 20 miles of trails for hikers, bicyclists and equestrians. And nearby the Molalla corridor is the Table Rock Wilderness, also managed by BLM!
If the lush, green forests and columnar basalt features of the river canyon aren’t enough to dazzle, there are also views of the Cascade mountains! Don’t miss this great #mypubliclandsroadtrip stop!
Hey guys, I am reopening this series of One Shots/Shorts Stories, featuring the prompts I get from you.
This story is from the series My Boys Drabbles but it can also be read as a independent one shot.
thank you @jia911 for sending it back so fast and for the encouraging feedback!
I honestly can’t remember who asked me to write this one, I got this same request from more than two people. Basically, it’s about the trip Owen and Amelia took to Hawaii (I’ve mentioned it on the MB series a few times) and how they got pregnant with the twins.
This one sets about 4 years after they got married.
Hawaii Trip - Parte One
“You brought the red bikini though, didn’t you?”
Amelia looked into Owen’s eyes, seeing how interested in her answer he was.
They were in a hotel lobby, checking in for their first ever family
vacation. Lucas was visibly bored up on his dad’s shoulders while Thomas was fast asleep in his mother’s arms, his blonde head resting on her
shoulder. Amelia passed the two year old to her left arm, trying to sort
through the inside of her purse with her right hand.
“You should focus on finding our documents
before worrying about that,” She reprimanded her
husband but couldn’t help smiling at his
Owen had suggested they took that trip months before, and he had
carefully planned everything. Amelia had had no idea where they would be going
until a couple of weeks before, when Owen had filled her in on their
reservation and plane tickets. Initially, Amelia had been hesitant about taking
a trip to the beach with two toddlers, but seeing how excited Owen was about
their getaway, she couldn’t help slowly looking
forward to it too.
