burn in hades

MAY 2016 BOOK HAUL

Writing my sisters’ papers is really rewarding 

Blood and Sand

Hi there! This is just a gladiator au idea that I got and then when the amazing @buckysbackpackbuckle wrote one (ps its very different so don’t worry and also go read it its incredible xxx) I literally was so excited and had to write one myself! So here it is, it’s pretty short compared to how long my updates usually are but I just wanted something easy and fun today :) Let me know what you think!

Thick steel screeches as two blades clash against each other and meet in a shuttering ‘X’. James the Champion of Rome – hiems et miles, or more affectionately named Bucky by the Roman populous, leans forward and brings his face close to yours through the gap in the glinting metal, taking in the intimate details of your blood, sweat, and dirt caked face. You’ve fought and killed 5 trained fellow gladiators before him. In a row. One after the other. And he was at last called upon (because a champion doesn’t fight a mere slave-woman, a gladiator legend like James deserves more honor than that apparently) to finish off the spectacle, to finish off you for you are the spectacle. James is desperate to see what you’re made of as he searches your features for a hint at where all this “unwomanly” and nearly god like strength is coming from, because whatever it is he wants it.

lmb || Hades// how do we know the gods are dead (1/?)

You found me, mouth like a pomegranate
picking flowers in my mother’s field.
An invitation of sorts.
You took it as one and spent five months
thinking about slipping your fingers into my mouth.
I think the Earth changed the day we met,
It had been waiting for you to bare your teeth
and swallow me whole
It had been waiting for the cup of your palm
around my neck except you didn’t have to beg baby
you said “let me show you what flowers look like
from the earth up.”
and I said “yes, please. Show me your flowers,
show me your dead, show me your fingers.”
My mother warned me about gods like you,
hungry, greedy gods like you
all desire and no thought
all want and no logic
I was the same.
I skipped with you into hell
Artemis knows dragged, I know this:
I held my arms outwards and let you tie them
so softly that I asked what they were made of
and you said “prayers.”
We kissed at the entrance, open-mouthed
furious kisses
we kissed like we were starving,
kissed like the dead were crawling out of hell
I decorated your dark with flowers
and sat on your lap and fed you petals.
It makes me burn when they say
“Hades stole Persephone.”

and I tell them “No.
I stole him.”

I’m sorry that this is late. It took longer than I thought it would, but I’ll do better with meeting the next deadline 

 The Argo II came back from Greece to cheering crowds of both purple and orange. Six of the seven on board left the ship via rope ladder for various reasons while Leo finished landing the ship.

When the ship had come to a full stop Nico stuck on board to escape the crowds. Now he could see all of what was going on from a good distance away. He was so intent on watching that he didn’t notice when someone came up behind him.

“What are you doing here?”

Nico jumped slightly and turned around. The elf-like Latino kid was standing there with a stupid on his face.

“Who are you?” The question came out sounding harsher then intended. He recognized the kid, but his name escaped him.

“You don’t know who I am?” The kid seemed shocked. “You don’t know the Supreme commander of the Argo II? The McSizzle? The bad boy supreme? The–”

“I’ve heard of you but I don’t recall your name.” Nico said cutting him off.

The other boy grinned wider. “But you have heard of me.”

Nico stared at him like he had two heads.

Leo laughed awkwardly. “Sorry that was a really bad Pirates of the reference. The name’s Leo Valdez.” He stuck out his hand for Nico to shake. Nico stared at him for a minute more before clasping Leo’s hand with his own.

“Nico di Angelo.”

“I know who you are.”

“Oh. Okay.”

*****

Cleanup from the war was long. This was mainly because the Greek demigods didn’t want to fix the damaged parts of of New Rome and the Roman ones didn’t want to fix the parts of Camp Half-Blood they’d destroyed. During this long time Leo and Nico’s friendship grew

By the fall, Leo became the second person Nico came out to. He was very surprised at how well Leo took the news, but a lot less surprised when Leo told him that he was bisexual (Nico had caught him checking out Jason more then once).

By New Year they had started a tentative relationship. It was a bit shaky at first; neither had been in real relationship before and they were still testing each others boundaries. For awhile though, everything was good (or a least as much as it can be when you’re a demigod). Then jealously decided to throw in her monkey wrench. This wrench came in the form of Percy Jackson.

One particular night before the campfire, Leo made his way to the Hades cabin to pick up Nico. He could hear laughter from within and opened the door to see what was going on. In the middle of room was Nico and Percy smiling with their arms around each other. Before either of the boys could see him, Leo shut the door and from the cabin.

I thought he was over his crush on Percy. Am I not good enough? Leo thought to himself angrily. Inferiority complex much? a more rational voice said in the back of his mind It might not be as bad as it looks. They are friends. It still looked bad…I’ll ask him about it tomorrow, he thought as he sat with the rest of his cabin. Nico and Percy arrived a few minutes later. When Nico offered him a small wave, Leo pointedly looked in the other direction.

The next morning Leo avoided talking to Nico. By lunch Nico was thoroughly confused as to what had happened and decided to talk to his boyfriend. He found Leo in the Hephaestus cabin after asking Nyssa where he was.

“Hey Leo.” he said with a small smile.

“Hey.” Leo replied shortly.

“What’s up?”
“Nothing.”

“Did something happen?”

“You tell me.”

Now Nico was really confused. He honestly didn’t know what he’d done to upset Leo.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about”

“Think really hard.”

Nico’s brow crinkled in confusion, he seriously didn’t know what Leo was talking about.

Leo sighed. “I thought you didn’t like him anymore.”

“Who?”

“Percy.”

“Oh.” So he’d seen them in his cabin the night before. There really wasn’t anything to that, they were just being silly. “If you’re talking about last night it was nothing.”

“Sure.”

Nico walks over to Leo’s bed and sat down beside him. The mechanic is fiddling with some sort of contraption and avoiding eye contact with Nico. Nico put his hand on top of Leo’s just to have it be swatted away. He tried again with the same result before holding onto Leo’s hand.

“Will you just stop? I’m not in the mood right now.” Leo said annoyed trying to pull his hand back. A small flame erupted from his fingers burning the son of Hades hand.

“Ow!” Nico jumped up, holding onto his fingers that had turned bright red.

“Sorry!” Leo blurted. He couldn’t believe he’d done that. This is what happens when you let your emotions get the best of you.

Nico gave him a hurt look before running out of the cabin, slamming the door as he went.

*****

Jason and Piper were walking back to their cabins from the arena when they saw a very upset-looking Nico di Angelo run out of the Hephaestus cabin. They exchanged a look.

“Somethings telling me their first major spat just took place,” Piper said knowingly, “I’ll talk to Nico if you talk to Leo.”

“Okay.” Jason agreed.

The pair then split up to accomplice their task.

*****

Jason found Leo on his bed with his head buried in one of the pillows. He sat down beside the fire user. “So what happened with Nico?” He got a stream of muffled sounds for an answer. “Can you say that so I understand you?”

“I screwed up and burned Nico and now he probably hates me or a least majorly dislikes and–”

“Why did you burn him?”

“It wasn’t on purpose. I was really mad about seeing him and Percy doing, I don’t even know what ‘cause I didn’t let him explain and now I’ve screwed up royally.”

“So you screwed up. And you know you screwed up. Just talk to him and apologize. Can you do that?”

“I can try. I don’t know if he’ll listen.”

“Well Piper’s talking to him now so you’re chances of him listening went up a little bit.”

“Yea.”

*****

When Piper entered the Hades cabin she could hear that the bathroom sink was on. She went in the bathroom and saw Nico running his burn beneath the water. “I have some nectar on me. That might work better.” He turned to face her and nodded. After patching up his hand Piper asks, “What happened between you and Leo?”

“Do you want me to explain everything or just what happened in his cabin.”

“Everything.”

“Okay. You know how Percy took Annabeth out dancing the other night?” Piper nodded. “Well we were talking in my cabin last night and I told him I might want to do that with Leo but I can’t dance. He was trying to teach me and at some point Leo must have seen and read the situation wrong. He was really mad when I was trying to talk to him earlier and burned me. That was accident though so I probably overreacted.”

“That makes sense. Try talking to him later, okay.”

“Okay.”

*****

After dinner they met on the deck of the Argo II. For a few minutes neither of them said anything. Then Leo spoke up.

“So…”

“So…” Nico copied.

“I’m sorry I burned you and that I got jealous. In hindsight I didn’t think very rationally and…” Leo trailed off.

“And what?”

“And I want to ask for a second chance. It’s perfectly fine if you don’t want to give me one, but I really want to try again.”

“Okay.” Nico said simply, “I didn’t react that well either so your not entirely to blame.”

“So let’s just start completely over,” Leo stuck out his hand, “Hi I’m Leo Valdez.”

“I know who you are.”

“Oh. Okay.”

5.21 Alternate Ending | OQ + CS + WickedQueen | 2k words

When Emma entered the Mayor’s office, she would never have expected the sight in front of her eyes – Zelena was sobbing, clinging to Regina, who was instead crying silently – Robin was lying next to them, eyes closed.

“What the hell?”

The only answer she got, were louder sobs from Zelena. Regina looked at her – in her eyes, something was off, as if a flame had stopped burning.

“Hades…” she motioned towards Robin’s lifeless body, Emma was already kneeling and placing two finger on his neck – no pulse.

“… and he tried to kill me too,” Regina sniffed – and Emma felt tears prickle in her eyes, because Regina’s voice was too quiet, broken.

“…and then… Zelena stabbed him with the crystal,” she murmured, and now Emma could understand why Zelena was crying so desperately.

She suddenly looked up. “Regina, split your heart!” she exclaimed, surprised that the queen hadn’t already done it.

“It’s no use,” a lonely tear fell down. “His… his soul has been erased, Emma!”

“What?”

“The… the crystal, it deletes one’s soul, I can’t bring him back!”

“Oh my god,” Emma’s hand flew to cover her mouth. “But…”

“No buts,” Regina cut short, in a blunt attempt of putting her conceal-don’t-feel mask on. “That’s what happens when someone loves me, Emma. They get hurt. Surely you remember of Camelot? Of the ball, of the dreamcatcher? Of Daniel?” She was hissing between her teeth now, and Emma flinched at her surge of anger.

Regina got up, squeezing her sister’s hand one last time – Zelena was staring at the floor, a blank expression had replaced her tears – and reached the Mayor’s desk, opened a drawer and pulled out something familiar.

She turned, and unfolded page twenty-three in front of her eyes. “This? This was a cruel joke, Miss Swan, as I’ve told you before,” she exclaimed, fingers clenching around the paper. “This whole soulmate thing was a cruel joke. He didn’t deserve this, and certainly not for me,” she spat out – Emma stared at her, concerned, as she began pacing. “Because Roland – and the baby –” she gestured towards the crib, suddenly speechless, and slammed the page back on her desk.

“Regina – what do you mean, his soul has been erased?”

“Haven’t you your father’s wit?” she said angrily. “No Underworld, no Heaven, nothing, it’s like – like he has never existed! It’s like when – ”

Emma looked at her intently – she had stopped in the middle of a sentence, her gaze lost somewhere, as if she was remembering something.

“When what?”

My Top 5 Disney Villains and Why I Love Them

out of all of my groups of top 5s, the only one that i can really explain why i love them all so much is the villains

1. Zira (The Lion King 2) - Zira is my favortie Disney villain because of her song “My Lullaby.” It is one of the most twisted things Disney has ever done. Zira is a complete sadist and blatantly states in the song that she basically kills for fun and that is my favorite kind of villain. (Think along the lines of say the Joker)

2. Judge Claude Frollo (The Hunchback of Notre Dame) - Frollo was driven completely insane by his desires that he believed were sinful. He was corrupt from the beginning, not to mention a hypocrite, and he killed a gypsy and almost threw a baby down a well. He went mad trying to remain a “Holy” man and when he sinfully lusted after a woman, he vowed to make her his, or burn her (and convinced all of Paris that he was burning her for witchcraft).

3. Hades (Hercules) - I love Hades because he’s a comical villain, but without completely overdoing it like Disney usually does with its intentionally humorous characters. He has just the right amount of snarky lines that you can still take him seriously as an antagonist, and a devious one at that.

4. Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty) - Maleficent is a great villain mainly because she’s a diva. Essentially, the entire plot of the movie is based on the fact that she threw a hissy fit because she wasn’t invited to a party. Not only that but she turns into a fucking dragon! How cool is that? And she calls people “fools” all the time. And if I’m not mistaken, I’m pretty sure she’s the first villain to get her own live action-film remake.

5. Prince Hans of The Southern Isles (Frozen) - Last, but certainly not least, we have the newest edition to the Disney villains collection, Prince Hans from Frozen. I’ve seen a lot of people say that he was poorly written and they didn’t set him up well to be the villain. I disagree, when I go back and re-watch the movie or listen to say Love Is An Open Door, I can clearly see that Hans, is in fact, a little shit. There are clear signs of him Manipulating Anna throughout the movie and I’m a sucker for good subtle foreshadowing to a big plot twist.
