» Erised by RedBluePalatar

It was the smile that really did Lance in. While Lance could deal with hot, older Keith, he was having trouble with the happiness that was so visible on his face, his stature. He was relaxed and bright. Suddenly, Lance couldn’t imagine Keith without it.

Lance wanted—no, he needed to know everything about this person. He needed to know because Keith is the most interesting puzzle set before him, and he only knew their name and that was a goddamn shame.

When the others are down, Lance always knew how to make it better. But he felt that was the only time they wanted him around, that he was useless otherwise.

With the absence of their leader, Shiro, the responsibility of leading the team has been thrusted onto Keith’s shoulders, and the reassignments of Lions are in order. However, Lance is not as ready to accept this new change as the rest of the team.

And neither is the Black Lion.

He’d just wanted a glimpse. It was stupid and childish and selfish, but he’d just wanted one more look out on the ocean, one more peek in the window of his family home, just in case they never made it back to Earth. Just in case he never got another chance.

Grounding With the Elements

These tips are from my own experience. Grounding daily or when needed with the aid of an elementis also a great way to work with them.

Earth:

-The ‘typical’ way of grounding, which is to visualize roots coming from one’s body and being ‘chained’ to the ground. In this way you are getting rid of excess energy and giving back to the Earth.

Air:

-I use breathing techniques to ground with the air. You may also use essential oils to help in regards to exhaling. For example, you may inhale sweet orange essential oil to energize you, and you may exhale the excess energy you have surrounding you. Another technique you can use to is visualize excess energy inside of you, and begin to exhale it out of you.

Fire:

-Finding a way to ground using fire was a bit tricky for me, but I found a way in regards to meditation with a lit tealight candle. You would hold this candle in the palms of your hands while feeling it’s warmth, visualizing that the warmth is slowly burning or melting away excess energy.

Water:

-For water, an effective way is to ground yourself is by taking a fresh shower, imagining the water washing your excess energy away. If you have a special bath soap you use, you can use it here, too.

How Thedas’ Matriarchal Society Would Actually Work

And why it would be plausible to be different in Tevinter.

Hoo boy, I had a fun time discussing this with my friends the other day. Which this isn’t the final post for this, just one I had to get out less I forget this discussion entirely.

So as we all know Thedas is supposed be a matriarch society with emphasis of it in the Andrastian faith, BUT Bioware does a pretty shitty job doing that/showing it. So let’s begin from the beginning.

Andraste was the woman to unite all of Thedas against Tevinter’s harsh rule. She is worshipped and held in high regard in Thedas and especially in Andrastism. This is where the matriarchy and matriarchal ideals come from. This automatically holds women in higher regard in society, especially as warriors and leaders.

Women and their families would deeply seek to have first born daughters, much like Andraste who only gave birth to daughters. A family with mostly sons would likely give the woman legal cause to leave and disown her husband. A family with a first born son would, on an unspoken level, be seen as less influential and prosperous among society. Not to say men couldn’t be successful or rise, it is just harder for them and they may be questioned in places of power (see King Markus Pentaghast) This would mean that in situations like Calian/Anora, Calian would be heavily scrutinized as being the reason for Ferelden lacking an heir. Regardless of the high acclaim of his family and the Theirin line.

Speaking of Cailan, we know he slept around on Anora. This would bring him even more vitriol, as we know Maferath slept with a woman outside of Andraste and Maferath (and any metaphor for Maferath) tends to be looked down at. Since it was Maferath who betrayed Andraste to Magister Hessarian. In reality, Celene wouldn’t have even given Cailan’s offer a second look, because she would not seek to wrong the Queen of Ferelden. For an action like that would be seen as an attack on Ferelden, an insult to their Queen (Leading Woman) is an insult to their country. A good canon example of this is actually King Calenhad and Thedas during his time, a majority of the leaders and those of high acclaim were women, while when Calenhad cheated on his wife he was shunned from the throne by all of Ferelden.

Which it is due to the actions of Maferath and Hessarian, that men would be at a disadvantage. For it was those two men who brought Andraste down and men, out of greed and jealously, that drew the Maker’s ire and made him turn away his gaze.

Meanwhile, things are different in Tevinter and they have more of a patriarchal society with the Black Divine, and a majority of men in the Magisterium. As well as gender being an issue for them. One reason is obviously spite, because it is Andraste who caused their empire to fall. However, it also goes back to the time of Andraste. In their stories it is played up on how Hessarian was repentant, it was him who gave Andraste mercy in her time of anguish. He who showed compassion to the Maker’s lady. He who after Andraste’s death spread hers and the Maker’s word to Tevinter, who gave her a voice once more. This, coupled with the actions of his wife, Lady Vasilia (Thedas’ version of Lady Macbeth), is what sealed the Tevinter patriarchy. Lady Vasilia being the one who convinced her husband to burn Andraste slowly and publicly upon a pyre, telling him to refuse her mercy. In essence, Tevinter would have basis to blame the fall of Andraste and the Maker’s anger on Lady Vasilia, who wished suffering on Andraste. Again while her husband was the one to raise his voice for Andraste. All of which would fit Tevinter’s twisted version/interpretation of the Chant of Light and why their Divine is a man (unlike the southern Divine who represents Andraste, their Black Divine represents Hessarian).

So yeah, that’s pretty much how it should be for Thedas with the canon lore in place and how we play it for our Tabletop, even though Bioware doesn’t show/see it this way.

Being with Sirius after having a nightmare would include

You’d be acquaintances at the most

You’re friends with Lily so you see him occationally with her shadow James

You’ve been having nightmares constantly for weeks

You wake up one night uncontrollably bawling

Embarrassed, you leave the dorm not to wake the others

Your cries settle to sniffles

Dragging a blanket with you across the Gryffindor common room to the sofa

You cucoon yourself in the blanket and curl up against the red velvet

The glow of the fire mixed with the reds and golds of the room settles you

“ Couldn’t sleep? ”

“ Jesus Christ ”

“ No just Sirius ”

He was sat in almost the exact same position just on the single sofa

It was odd seeing the playboy with a blanket draped over him exposing only his face

He looked like an egg

You smiled lightly at him

“ Bad dream? ”

You hummed in agreement as you were reminded of the horrors

“ Me too ”

He seemed sad

He had now let the blanket drape around his shoulders

You realised he was shirtless

“ What were yours about? ”

“ If I told you you’d be horrified ”

“ Try me Black ”

He went into detail about how he dreamt his mother used the imperius cruse to make him kill James

You told him about your repeat dream of Voldemort forcing you to watch as he killed eveyone you loved

“ We’re so fucked ” he laughed

You didn’t respond

You’d been sat for over an hour now but had slid down from the sofas to be sat next to each other on the floor

You talked about your plans after Hogwarts

You suggested you’d probably both be dead before the end of seventh year

“ Every time I close my eyes I see him pulling up my hair to make me look at him ”

“ Can I be honest? ”

You responded with a strange mix of humming and saying yes

“ I’m terrified ”

Sirius Black terrified? You stared at him

“ I’m terrified of what my family is planning with me. I haven’t been the best rep of a pure blood family as of resent ”

Without thinking you brushed your hand against his

Originally posted by loveviral


He retracted it slightly before he settled

You hands sat on top of each others

Not holding hands but not alone

You watched the fire slowly burn out

You could feel his stare

You’d barely ever spoken to him and now you were practically holding hands in front of a fire talking about your feelings

“ This sounds forward but it helps if you sleep with someone else ”

He gave you a suggested look causing you to slap his wrist

“ You know what I mean ”

If the fire wasn’t there you would have noticed his blush but the shadows of him bowing his head and the fire blurred his redness

“ I-er-yeah okay ”

Before your mind could react your body had pulled you both up

You held his pinky in yours as you lead him upstairs

Originally posted by couplenotes

It was 100% akward from here

You slid into bed and pulled him in with you causing him to fall ontop of you

Shirtless Sirius blushing

You both lay next to each other

“ Erm do you want to cuddle? ”

Merlims beard you knew how to make it akward

But he laughed slightly easing the tension

“ Yeah I’ll-em put my arm around you like-er-this ”

You were silent for a moment

“ Is this okay? ”

Originally posted by sensualkisses

You didn’t speak just nodded, too afraid you’d squeal strangely

You assumed he was asleep at his lack of movement

You moved your hand to lock with his

He squeezed your hand

“ Thank you Y/N ”

Your heart freaking melted at his genuine graditude

His breathing settled as he fell into a slumber

You followed swiftly

It was the best night sleep you’d had since the summer

Falling slowly

So, I definitely got more out of my second read through of Of Bright Stars and Burning Hearts. 

One of the things that struck me is how Viktor thinks about Yuuri, and when he does it. We know that at the end of the chapter, at the age of 23, Viktor is ‘completely in love with Yuuri’. But the bit before he says this is very telling: 'Viktor had known for a long time where the path he was walking would eventually lead’. See that? He had known for a long time.  Perhaps he didn’t think it in the words he uses at the end of the chapter, but he knew he was falling all the same.  And when I read through the chapter I just saw so much evidence of Viktor falling. He’s been falling slowly for a long time, and we can see it happen through the chapter. 

(The rest below the cut)
