Castle Black, 501 AC

As soon as she was spotted by rangers south of the Wall, word was brought to him. The Martell girl’s arrival is not a surprise; a raven had been sent nearly a month past detailing plans for her arrival and orders for her stay. It isn’t often that the rulers of Westeros meddle in the politics of the Wall, however, the new Queen is different than her predecessors, Roan is told.

She travels by cart–a luxury provided by the Queen–guided by one of his wandering crows, coming back with new recruits from King’s Landing.

Roan watches from the top of the Wall as they make their way to the Wall. No commands need to be ordered to open the Wall–the Wall opens for everyone now–but Roan makes his way from his post on the top of the Wall to the gates to greet them. Stopping by one of the stewards, he tells him to ready the King’s Tower for their guest.

A crowd has formed below as rumors of a Lady coming to stay at Castle Black have been circulating for weeks now. Roan hears a few of the newer recruits’ remarks and draws his sword.

“She is not to be touched,” he says authoritatively. His words are directed toward the three men speaking crudely, but everyone in the crowd knows they’re meant for all.

“She can take care of herself,” echoes a voice coming in from the Wall. 

The sound of the cart Roan hadn’t been paying attention to until this moment comes to a halt and all eyes focus on the girl riding it. She eases herself off and Roan watches in awe as she makes her way over to him. She wears a brace on her left leg, and uses a long rod of what looks to be Valerian steel to steady herself.

No where in the Queen’s letter was there a mention of the reason for the cart, he found himself thinking.

It wasn’t until she snorted in a distinctly unladylike way that he realized he said it out loud. “It isn’t something I advertise, Lord Commander, ” she responds.

“Roan, is fine, Lady Raven,” he insists.

She smiles genuinely, “Alright, Roan, of House Mormont, then please do me the same courtesy and simply call me Raven.”

“Of course,” he agrees. He then offers to show her to her quarters as well as her workroom.

“Clarke’s sending the supplies I outlined for her in the next few days, so I imagine my workroom is rather empty at the moment,” Raven states. “I would love to see the elevator instead, to get a feel for what I’m working with.”

Roan nods. Addressing the crowd around them for the first time since her arrival, he says, “You all have your duties,” and then nods in the direction of the elevator. “This way,” he says to the Martell girl.

Raven could tell from the moment she arrived at the Wall that the Night’s Watch picked a good Lord Commander. He’s new to the position, having had it just a little longer than Clarke has been Queen. Roan of House Mormont seems like a decent man.

She heard the crude comments from some of the men while she was in the tunnels under the Wall but wasn’t surprised by them. While the Wall has been open for since the defeat of the white walkers over a hundred years ago, people don’t tend to stay at Castle Black, or any of the other Night’s Watch castles. The brothers on the Wall rarely see women, so Raven knew what she was getting into when she agreed to Clarke’s request.

Roan’s quick and definitive defense of her was a surprise. She had heard of him, too. The golden child of House Mormont, banished by his mother and replaced by a commoner. A serving girl taken from her parents and trained by Lady Nia to rule in his stead. He has certainly made something of himself.

At first, he and his men were against many of her proposed changes. “Castle Black and the Wall have stood for thousands of years and a thousand Kings,” he had said over dinner in the common hall her first night there. “Why is the Queen commanding these improvements now?”

“What I’m planning to do wasn’t possible before now,” Raven had said confidently. Then, glancing sideways at the Lord Commander, she added, “and you’re the first to even consider someone such as me to do the work.”

Needless to say, Raven’s measure of the Lord Commander proves true. She is given free reign at Castle Black. She visits the library often, where she finds him late at night. She has noticed that he seems to always be reading whatever book she had in her hands the evening before. He’s also very patient when training the new recruits, and even more so with her interruptions of his training.

Clarke didn’t choose her to be the Commander of her Queensguard for her looks or witty attitude, of course. She was a skilled fighter before her accident, and can still hold her own decently well. She can’t help but watch from above the training grounds as the new recruits practice and shout out suggestions and criticisms to them. Roan tends to agree with her and expand on her words, turning her suggestions into mini-lessons.

Turnabout is fair play, of course, so he stops by her workroom most days and peppers her with questions about her changes to the elevator and the other improvements for the Castle that she’s been commissioned to make. He has come a long way since her first night, and seems almost eager for the construction to begin.

Truth be told, Raven’s enjoyed her time at Castle Black so much, she’s trying to decide what to write Clarke and Bellamy in order to extend her stay. She considers telling the truth–that she likes the Night’s Watch and like’s its Commander–but she can’t bring herself to put that in writing.

She’ll simply have to explore the Castle some more and find something else to improve instead.

I’m not proposing to you to keep you here or because I’m afraid I’m gonna lose you. I’m proposing because I can’t imagine my life without you.

 “So like I have more… Are you sick of me yet ?? lol if so say when haha. Im going to DIsney in June and I can’t help but think of kissing Tony Stark in front of Cinderella’s castle.. the rest I leave to you as always. :)” tonystarksgirl


“We should take a picture in front of the castle with our ice creams!” You squealed as your boyfriend Tony Stark handed you a Mickey Mouse shaped ice cream bar.

“You’re insufferable, you know that?” He rolled his eyes before taking a gigantic bite out of one of his Mickey’s ears. It was the fourth day of your Disney World vacation, and overall Tony had been a good sport about adhering to your every whim thus far. Including, but not being limited to, Disney Bounding as your favorite Disney couples each day, taking pictures with nearly every character that you could find, and suffering through It’s a Small World for you.

“You were just saying how much fun you’ve been having!” You sighed. “C’mon, I won’t let them take a hundred pictures like they usually do.”

“I don’t know, Sweetheart.” He smirked. “You might want a few hundred pictures of this one.” You were pulling him by the hand away from the ice cream cart and didn’t notice him toss the empty stick from his ice cream away and carefully pat the pocket of his jeans.  You waved at an unsuspecting Disney Photopass cast member until they shyly walked over to you.

“Mr. Stark, Miss. [Y/L/N], is there something I could help you with?” The photographer was a younger woman probably not much older eighteen. She smiled sweetly at you both and waited for you to reply.

Prompt : The Little Mermaid AU

Word count : 8315

Warnings : Language, smut, unprotected sex (wrap it up kiddos or you’ll have babies or worse ! and I’ll put the gif that inspired me for that and blame the series of books ‘Once Upon a Time’ by Eloisa James and it leads well to the end, I let you do the counting). Prince Bucky (yes that’s a warning !)

Author’s note : So this is finally my Little Mermaid AU for @sincerelysaraahh‘s Month of Fairy Tales. I’m sorry it took so long, I was supposed to post that on Monday, but (holy shit) it’s a 13 pages long story. A big part is inspired by the Disney movie of course, some scenes are a rewrite and the rest comes from me. As I already said in my previous stories, English is not my first language and even if I check my texts several times, mistakes can remain (don’t hesitate to tell me if you spot one, also if you spot my name inside just tell me, because I write it with my name first and then I change when I post). I hope you’ll enjoy it and feedback is always appreciate.

The sea in the distance, that was the view from his room, he had forgotten it, after spending so long time at the hospital. He took a look at the left side of his body, instead of a flesh arm, there was a metal one, from his shoulder to his fingers, no flesh anymore, but a prosthetic metal arm. Everything happened in a blink of an eye. He sighed, what if he hadn’t be so stupid, what if he didn’t had drunk that much on that damn night, what if he didn’t let his best friend, Steve, who was also his cousin, drove his car that night when he was as drunk as he was. What if ? Stop thinking about it James, what’s done is done, the past is the past. But, how wasn’t he supposed to think about it when he, James Barnes, was the crown prince and only heir of the kingdom of Edensea. Sometimes, he regretted to still be alive, he would rather die than live as a cripple the rest of his life. Of course, he was still as handsome as he was before that unfortunate accident, with his perfect jawline, his dark chestnut hair and his steely blue-eyes, but when he woke up a few days after and saw that his left arm was missing, something had gone out from him. He was broken inside and outside. Why did he have to lose one of his arms, and have scars, when Steve was perfectly healthy ?

For Alex, castlefanfics, because I promised her a scene based on the bed scene in ‘The Proposal’ to go with the first two parts, so here it is. (Part 1, Part 2).
__________

The bonfire is great. They all tell stories, some about every cousin, every aunt and uncle. One specific one is his favorite, one about Kate as a rebellious teen who tried to sneak out her window to go to a party and ended up twisting her ankle when she landed, only to have locked herself outside the house. While one of Kate’s cousins told the story, her cheeks burned red, illuminated by the flicker of firelight, and that was his favorite part.

She spends the evening sitting in a lawn chair, legs crossed, leaning forward. Engaged and happy. Sipping at her glass of wine. Laughing and having fun like he’s never actually seen her do before. She’s beautiful, the flicker of fire flashing in her eyes, the glow of the evening surrounding her. Starlight is disguised by the fire, but when she looks up, her eyes grow wide with amazement at the view, a view you can never get in New York City.

It’s reached the early hours of the morning when they decide to turn in for the night. Most of Kate’s cousins are drunk, but she’s limited herself to one glass of wine. A couple of the boys stay behind to put the fire out while everyone else walks back to the house, couples breaking off from the ground, Grandma Ruth yawning.
