Why yes I’m salty

Give me Luna, still shell-shocked, sitting at the piano in her room with the lock bolted from the outside, her injured brother curled with his head between his knees at the foot of her bench. She’s playing a mechanical tune with one hand while the other pets his hair, the same as she’s been doing for hours since the world crashed down around their ears and the forests of Tenebrae turned to fire. They used to play duets for their mother and her guests - Luna on the keys, Ravus on the violin. They’ll never do so again. Give me Luna too stunned and too sad to cry, and Ravus too tired from having done nothing but… until an imperial guard comes in to separate them. Luna breaks a lamp over his head before she’s taken away.

Give me Luna before the seat of the Emperor, curious because she remembers him differently. In the blur of a childhood memory they were in Altissia together and he gave her a windup dragon he crafted himself, then let her hold his hand while Sylva walked with the secretary. It’s cold around him now as if he brought the frosts of Gralea along, and she asks him if he still makes toys even as she trembles. Aside, the Chancellor snickers, and the Emperor can’t seem to meet her eyes.

Give me Luna being the only one able to see a man underneath Glauca’s amour - a stern girl with too much wisdom forced upon her by circumstance gazing up into the eyeless glow of the monster who killed her mother and telling him whatever happened to you was wrong. I hope you have the strength to make it right. Wherever she goes, she makes the military uncomfortable, and in time she works this to her advantage. There are often guns pointed at her; she pushes them aside and does what she wants. No one has ever fired on her and she’ll keep taking her chances.

And Noctis- sure Luna loves him, as much as anyone can love a sweet coddled thing raised as fodder for the maws of fate. He writes her notes from a different world, sends her pictures that remind her what peace looks like, what she still wishes for the entire world, and she appreciates that more than she can say. A stub of an arcade ticket, a glossy school picture- Luna loves the child she met, who promised her he will do his best to save the world despite having no idea what that means. She looks forward to properly meeting the man he’s grown into.

Give me Luna whose destiny is her own. The Oracle must support the Chosen King, yes- but the Chosen King is likewise powerless without the Oracle - let it be known. Give me Luna worn in her duties, who sometimes screams into the field of perfect Sylblossoms at the resentment she’s not allowed to feel. Luna sweet-talking a member of the Niflheim infantry into teaching her how to fly an airship. Luna laughing at a joke whispered to her during a solemn Imperial meeting. Luna never hesitating to speak her mind. Luna being gentle, proud and strong, despite life being so cruel, despite always being expected to do so much for so little.

In the end, Luna was the only one who ever disarmed Ardyn, whereas everyone else played into his hands. Give me the unseen pieces of Luna growing up into this - an amazing woman, the youngest, most powerful Oracle Eos has ever known.

Give me a Luna who is the heroine of her own story.

A Luna who lives after Noctis dies, to tell his.

Forgive me father, for I am still small. Learning to live, and barely striving beyond a crawl. My wings are still so tender, yet so damaged to say the least. I’ve seen more already, than most people would believe. “Don’t step on that fish” I heard, I know, but will it ever learn to love? Will it have the privilege to grow? I have too many questions, father, and I’d like to know the response. Yet everytime I ask of you, the answer mimics itself down to the spot. “Be patient, my child, for wisdom comes the price of time. You’ll get there one day, you’ll see. When you grow up you will become a leader, a leader even better than me.”

Forgive me father, for I have let the Angels fall. I’ve snapped my wings, I’ve risked it all. I have done some good things, at least, but I’m not the Angel you promised I’d grow up to be. I am broken, hated, nothing but a disappointment hiding in a shell. I don’t belong up here in heaven, I’d be better off in Hell. I’ve disobeyed rules, I’ve broken everyone’s trust, now it only seems fair that I get left in the dust. I tried to treat my wings, bandages and all. They don’t really help much, though, when all my wings do is go limp and fall. I’m sorry I let you down, father, though all I’ve ever done is care. I’ve put humanity before everything else, I must be hard to bare. I want to be new again, so pure and full of dreams, not the angst ridden angel that has too much heart, bursting at the seams. 
Please, forgive me, father. 
Forgive me…

There’s no such thing as what you ‘should’ be doing with your life. If you’re not holding yourself back from something you really want to try, and you enjoy the way you spend your day, then you’re a smashing success.
—  Lori Deschene
The Hesitant Zones

“I want to ask you something.” Trench told her roommate. Not-Chad sat on his bed, contorted beyond human limits, his shining eyes (green and blue like stormy arctic sea, without pupils or irises) unblinking,producing sounds that should be impossible for any type of  mouth (or machine) to produce. He was holding flowers and cookies Joshua from second floor brought him, so she supposed that was cooing.

Chad was gone for half year already, which was honestly all well by Trench. He never cleaned the room, and always brought his loud, annoying friends over. She had no idea why he was taken, and didn’t care. Not-Chad was clean, great help with homework and even since he moved in, Joshua, who was one of best chemistry majors on whole campus ever started helping her with her projects- she thought he would bail out once he learnt what Not-Chad was, or Not-Chad would curse him, but changeling lavished in pathetic romantic wooing and Joshua stopped wearing iron, so Trench counted herself lucky.

“I guessed so. You brought me thirteen raspberry tarts yesterday.So what zones do you want to talk about?” Again, luck had rained upon her. Trench was forbidden major, as were many biologists, but smart one. She didn’t try to figure out how fae worked-she doubted something like that was even possible with magic. Instead, she gathered information about their world and customs, by giving fae treats in exchange for stories.

Fae saw nothing wrong with that. They got presents in exchange for talking about their favorite subject-themselves. They would talk, and Trench would separate pearls from useless chatting. Not-Chad happened to be quite talkative fae (some sort of shape shifting merman, she found out) who didn’t waste words on useless information. In exchange for cakes, he would tell her about structure of his universe, The Elsewhere itself. For sake of metaphor, and because she was marine biologist and he sea fae, they called different regions of Elsewhere zones.

“About hadopelagic, demersal and benthic.” Not-Chad froze, and turned towards her, his glamour flickering so she could see his toned chest, silver skin, gills and long  bioluminescent hair.

“What?”

“You heard me. Spit it out..”

“What are you talking about?”

“You said that Elsewhere is like ocean. That it has just as many zones. That each zone contains stronger powers, that each one is less defined and more deadly to lesser beings. But abyssopelagic zone isn’t bottom of ocean. There are three more. So what dwells there?” Mesopelagic and bathypelagic zones contained things that didn’t bow to Courts, creatures best described as sentient archetypes and natural personifications, godlike fae who could freeze and burn and shatter the whole world. Abyssopelagic zone contained True Royalty.

She couldn’t imagine what horrible, mad things existed beyond them. But she had to know.

“No.  All food in world wouldn’t be enough for such information. You could bring me everything edible in world and it wouldn’t be enough.” He wasn’t joking, Trench knew and paled. Fae considered many things edible. Cakes, infants, diamonds,dreams, radiation.

“What would be?”

“No.” He trembled as he whispered that word, too caught in imagining what he knew and wouldn’t give her. That information would bring her fame, and more importantly, save so many lives. If they knew more about fae, they could protect themselves better.

“You will tell me.” Not- Chad’s teeth became those of shark, and mist surrounded him as glow of his eyes intensified.

“YOU WILL NOT THREATEN ME, MORTAL.”

“Nor will you harm me, Innglu-Sakkan.” She spoke, and  Not-Chad fell on floor upon sound of his Name.

“How..”

“A birdie gave me that name for a price.” He snarled, his spit red like corals.

“ Sentry-Mary!” He spat out.

“Yes.” Trench confirmed with smile upon her face. “They gave me this sweet name in exchange for my hesitation. Such a bargain.” Fool, Not-Chad thought.Hesitation gives conscience, holds base instincts in check, brings terror and caution. It is child of fear and wisdom, and you need to lose both to lose hesitation. It saves lives. And souls.

“Now, if you don’t tell me what I need to know, I will have you kill your pretty boy toy.” Old Trench would have never demanded that. But Trench had no fear, no doubt anymore that she was right.

“His roommate is very embittered knight. Hates your people. And so gullible. But big iron mace. I will just need to sob, and order you not to properly defend yourself, and I won’t even need to order you to keep your mouth shut. You could spill all beans and she wouldn’t believe you. Your friends won’t protect you because you broke Treaty.”

Fool, he thought. Giving names of their rivals to humans was discouraged and frowned upon, but not forbidden. Sentry-mary would keep quiet, but once word got out that he was gone, they would connect dots and go to Court. Trench and Joshua’s knight would be nothing but petals on wind.

“How do I know you won’t get rid of me either way?”

“You don’t. But I have no need to dispose of you. You are far more useful as source of information. Now free.’‘ 

’'This information won’t come free. There are laws even power of Name cannot overrule. You need to give up something to know about Great Ones.”

“Very well. What?” She said with frown. Old Trench would have considered it.

“There is somebody I want to protect.They are my… ..” He spoke some word her ears couldn’t process. He sometimes did that, when word couldn’t be explained by any human language. “ That child is very dear to me. Promise me they will always have place withing your family, as equal as yours.” You will be gone, forgotten by world, and creature of myth and dream will take your place, and none will know.

“That is all? I accept. Now speak.” Old Trench would have understood, would have gotten meaning of words.

“There are indeed three more zones, or layers as some call them.‘He cried as he spoke. Whisper released power that rattled Trench’s bones and echoed across all fae in world. Silence deeper than that of space filled room, and all light was extinguished, and Trench could feel water pour down her throat as hundred fae rattled door and windows ( it wasn’t salt and iron that stopped them. None may interrupt until information about Royalty was given out. After…). had Trench still any hesitation left, ounce of fear and wisdom, her heart would have been filled with such dread that it would have given out (yet she could feel shadow of horror, but ignored it).

’'They too are inhabited by the Great Ones. they aren’t nobles as you know that word, or we for that matter. They are  enormous, and unreal, and too powerful for your reality to contain. They play no games and fear  no charm. They are predators, and like ocean, they take what they want when they want how they want.  They swim and devour, and only beware of those  who are bigger, stronger than they. All of us bow to them, and only time they join with each other is when they form packs to tear stronger foe to pieces.

But for sake of metaphor, think of it like this. Abyssal zone is for princes, and archdukes, and despots. Hadal is for high kings,devarajas and pharaohs. The demersal zone is for emperors, tsars and great chiefs.” His kinsmen break through, army of shadow too many of them to fit in room yet they all do.

“And benthic? What creatures dwell there?” Trench asks, uncaring of cold fingers that grasp her limbs.

“A creature, or perhaps the creature. You have your God. We have our Queen, the Queen of Queens, She Who Dreams.”  He says as strong jaws bite down on his shoulders.

“What does she dream?” Trench asks, not even noticing claws that rip beneath her ribs (but she notices alien, uncaring light streaming in through window, stronger than that of Sun, and her blood knows fear again).

“Stars and oceans. Life and death. Destiny and desire. You and me.” Changeling speaks as shadows devour him.

“She dreams everything.”

  • [Damian and Maps have discovered a candle of Neron and, not realizing what it was, made the mistake of lighting it]
  • Maps Mizoguchi(Watching Neron materialize): …What is that?
  • Damian Wayne(Grimly): Trouble.
  • Neron(Finally taking shape): Thou speakest truly, O Child of Wisdom. For I am the demon Neron-
  • Maps Mizoguchi(Wrinkling her nose): Why are you talking like that? Is that a demon thing? Because it’s not very intimidating, it’s just… kind of annoying.
  • Neron(Ignoring her): …and I have been summoned either to fulfill your greatest desires or to be the instrument of thy death and that of thy paramour.
  • Damian Wayne(Outraged): My what?!
  • Neron(Indicating Maps): Thy lover. The woman who stands beside thee.
  • Maps Mizoguchi: Lover? We’re thirteen!
  • Damian Wayne(Also ignoring Maps): I know what you meant, but she isn’t my lover or my fiancee or my girlfriend or anything and I refuse to be killed with her!
  • Maps Mizoguchi(Indignant): What is THAT supposed to mean?!
  • Damian Wayne(Scowling): Be quiet. You’re the one who lit the candle, you’ve made enough of a mess already.
  • Maps Mizoguchi: IT WAS YOUR IDEA!
  • Neron(Suspiciously): If she is not thy paramour, nor any of those other things, then what is she?
  • Damian Wayne: A nuisance.
  • [Maps kicks him.]

Long post, so buckle up.

Blackwall mentions that he’s making the rocking horse for kids taking refuge within Skyhold and it got me thinking; what would others do for the refugee children in the Inquisition?

  • Leliana teaches them how messenger Ravens work and how they are trained. When she’s feeling especially kind she lets them write letters to their deceased parents and sends a raven to where some of her less busy scouts can reply to the children’s letters. She talks to them about how she trains and works with her scouts to keep everyone safe, sound, and updated on all of the current events. She may even sneak a song in there for them, but if you tell anyone you’ll lose your tongue.
  • Dorian teaches children all about the history of mages and performs magic for them so they can see that mages aren’t a thing to be feared in fact, mages can do a lot to help society. While he reminds them people who use magic don’t always use it well he tells the children most use it for the betterment of the lives around them. He also talks to them about the importance of knowing history and to never repeat the bad and learn from the good. Also, to always be true to yourself and anyone who doesn’t support your happiness doesn’t deserve your time. 
  • Josephine teaches the children manners while interacting with other people, she teaches them how to properly eat in Orlais, but she also might be guilty of starting a couple of food fights… Maybe. Don’t tell anyone. Manners aren’t everything, but watching the kids try to sit up straight and not giggle when Dorian, Ironbull and Sera make funny jokes is always of great amusement. 
  • Solas teaches children all about the fade and why it’s not scary (he leaves certain things out). He tells them about how he visits the fade in his dreams and tells them all about the good things he sees there, some of the stories may be a little… adapted for children. He teaches them about where their family members are in the fade, how it all works and how their parents are always there watching over them and they see how brave the children are being and are very, very proud.
  • Varric writes stories and teaches the younger children to read with them. He writes about the brave young child who’s parents were lost in the midst of a war, but the child used the wisdom they gained from reading and became a hero to all of Thedas because everyone is a hero. He also teaches them how to write their own stories and their own heroes, when the children give their stories for Varric to read it makes him feel amazing and some of these kids might surpass him soon… better tone down the lessons, can’t have any competition!
  • Sera shows the children archery and reminds the children never to take everything too seriously. She teaches the children that while there is suffering in life you can always look at the problems with a different perspective. It’s okay to be different, and it’s okay to be sad, but why change the past when you can own this day? Sera also tells the kids to be confident in who they are and no matter your background or your trauma you can always be strong and be a hero, even in a small way. She tells the kids that they don’t always have to stick to the tradition of whatever and it’s actually pretty cool to be unique and to question things in life instead of blindly following the masses.
  • Cassandra shows the kids how to fence and take care of their weapons. Reminding them that swords are not toys and to always be very careful, but they’re really fun to hit the dummies with. Cassandra also tells kids it’s okay to be tough, but also have a soft side, to want love and family, even being a warrior. Everyone loves poetry after all. She has attempted to teach the kids to write and while she may not be good at it, that’s part of the charm, her silly poems always bring a smile to the children’s faces and in turn, hers.
  • Cullen tells stories of the Templars and how they are not all bad people, it’s just the bad ones are the loudest. He tries to let the children know that he understands what they are going through is scary and it’s makes them angry that the war took their families from them, but to NEVER let it corrupt their morals, to instead let this pain make them stronger and to never be like the bad guys. Cullen talks to them about how he trains the forces and how anyone can be a soldier. He loves to do some (easy) drills with the kids because they always have so much fun and it’s a good distraction for them and him, too.
  • Vivienne works to clothe and groom the children, appearances are not everything after all (though, she’d never say it out loud), but when you are clean and in clean clothing, you feel better. She knows this. She works to remind the children to try and remain dignified, you can never let them see the hurt because it only pushes the bad guys further because they got the reaction they wanted… but it’s always okay to talk to her if you are struggling and sad, you are children lost in this war and no one should ever feel alone. Plus… they are really cute in their tailored outfits and when the little boys and girls feel awesome in their clothes, she feels awesome with them.
  • Ironbull teaches the children about diversity and why it’s so important to never be biased, unless they’re from Tevinter… Wait… What? But seriously, people fear what is different and change is always automatically evil, when in reality what makes the world amazing and what makes society better is that everyone is so different. Before we are anything (our sexuality, our race, our religion, our power) we are people, and that in and of itself demands respect. He also shows them some of the Qunari ways to control stress, but don’t worry he doesn’t hit them with the bat… thank the Maker.
  • Cole helps ease the painful memories the children have, not forget them, but make it easier to cope. He teaches them little ways to help people feel better. Like burning turnips to help someone feel at home as they pass through to the fade. Allowing spiders to spin their silk to heal wounds. We must always help those who need it, but we also mustn’t forget to help ourselves, too. Also, he reminds the children that when someone has done you wrong to forgive them because if you let that anger fester it can change who you truly are, forgiveness in times are hurt is not a weakness, but a great strength, not one everyone has.
  • The Inquisitor teaches children that even when you are scared, alone, and your life has changed entirely that you are still strong and you can make a difference. Always try to do the right thing and never be afraid of change. Befriend people who are different and always welcome help, no one can do everything alone. Always tell the truth (especially when accused of murder), and always, always be strong.

In short, I believe the children of the Inquisition are well loved, well taken care of, and are having some good fun. 

Please feel free to add what you think everyone would do! I didn’t want to make the post too long, but maybe Scout Harding gives the children some dance lessons, maybe Dennent teaches them to ride and properly care for the animals, maybe Adan teaches them how to make poultices, maybe Krem de le Krem teaches them about being true to yourself and to be the warrior you need and want to be… maybe….?

I really like your OC Cassandra, and her relationships with Jim! But I must admit, I'd give a lot to see the faces of Jim and Strickler, when Barbara has announced that she is pregnant. LOL

Ah, thank you so much! I love Cassandra and it makes me so happy how the fandom has showed her such affection! 

God, can you imagine?! You know how Barbra chugs that jug of water after finding out about the trolls? I’m torn between Strickler doing the exact same thing (except maybe with some scotch) or…

He very calmly hears Barbara deliver the happy news, very calmly gives a very stoic “…Ah”, very calmly rises, and then - very calmly - faints. 

Once he recovers while Barbara sighs and rubs her temples at this man Changeling whom her heart has decided to love and whom she is having a baby with, oh God what they hell are they getting into, they give Jim the news over some tea. 

To his credit, Jim does not faint. But Strickler does not appreciate having tea sprayed all over him do to Jim’s spit take of shock. “You’re WHAT?!” 

“Pregnant, sweetie.” 

“But – how – is that even possible?!” 

“…Well, Young Atlas, when a Human female and a Changeling male decide to –” 

Barbara swats his arm. “Not. Helping. Honey.” 

But secretly she’s relieved - if Walter can recover enough to indulge in sarcasm, he’ll be fine.

After all of the shock wears off for both of her boys, Jim and Strickler’s main concern is Barbara’s (and the baby’s) safety, seeing as she’s the first Human to carry a Changeling’s child. But with the wisdom of a doctor and the ferocity and feeling of a mother, Barbara manages to calm their fears, though Strickler will still end up countless nights before the actual birth staring up at the ceiling, thinking of EVERYTHING that could go wrong, it will go wrong, how could this be anything but wrong, unnatural, impure

It doesn’t. 

And it isn’t.  

In fact, when the small, gently squirming bundle is settled into his arms, and Strickler looks down into the face that stills his soul and steals his heart in the smallest matter of seconds, a face that has his eyes, green and watchful and wide as he presses a shaking hand to the damp beginnings of red curls, a gesture that makes that tiny little rosebud of a mouth purse before she - his daughter their daughter their child their baby his world - looks at him once more with the whole world that is in those eyes and she

smiles

up at him…

When that happens…Strickler can only think that nothing has ever been more right.

It was an endless peach orchard summer; every tree blossoming all at once.

The world was alive with color. Light shades of linen sheets and cicadas turned into endless dusks that brought myths to life. It was such a time to be alive. It was such a time for dreaming darker and deeper than we have ever imagined. 

The earth cracked beneath our bare feet, as thirsty as our lips were. Dark soil found ways to put smudges in even the whitest of cotton dresses.

Our fingertips were sticky with want, mouths quivering and hungry: pour ice cold water on your wrists, dip your fingers into the peaches cooling in the sink, forget that you are becoming ancient again.

Summer will do that to you – it will put crazy ideas in your head, but don’t listen to them.
When cicadas sing for you to come closer, just dip your toes into the swamp, it’ll be alright (the pretty white dress soaked in mud, your mother will cry) - just don’t listen to them.

Put your wrists under the tap and marvel at how blue your veins are.

Do not dream of kingdoms and swords and old things. You are young and new and there is a price on what you hold in your chest.

Take a step too far and they’ll snatch it; they’ll cut your hope right out.

The water is cold, doesn’t it feel good, hmm? Come back home in time for dinner, forget what you’ve heard. Persephone is just a girl who strayed too far from home, Artemis is just a wolf child. Wisdom erases the possibility of a happy ending.

Now run, run with your heartbeat pounding in your ears. The world is burning up, it’s red and your skin is already blistering. Your mother was right but cold water doesn’t help boiling blood, does it?

Run, you stupid child. Run for your life because winter is quiet and autumn is dying, spring is life but summer is deadly.

Someone should have already told you that.

There is a fine line between linen-and-cold-nights summer, and the one that turns very dark very early, like a rotting apple. It’s feral, it’s decomposing, it’s catching fire and it does not know when to stop burning.

Didn’t you hear birds in June?

In August, all there ever is is the silence.

So run. Run for your life, here, where this world seeps into the Other, the ancient borderline of reality and magic, the kind that is content to just exist – unless you dare it. And your feet did sound like a war drum.

No one has outrun summer yet. But you can try.

Good luck.

What do you think will be Mutsuki’s reaction when he returns to the CCG and finds Touka there working alongside Urie, Saiko, the Qs, and the CCG?

Probably….. not very pretty. But since the Quinx and Juuzou are there too, hopefully it will be an opportunity for Mutsuki to finally move off this downward spiral he’s been on. 

They’ve all stood by, hesitating to confront Mutsuki about his actions recently or refusing to believe there’s anything wrong. What Mutsuki went through was a horrifying ordeal and I can see how they would just have absolutely no idea how to broach this topic. Urie, who knows Mucchan is in love with Haise, saw hundreds of photos of Touka stabbed by knives, and didn’t think to go stop Mutsuki. Saiko tried to open discussion about Mucchan smelling like blood but when he diverted off that topic she dropped it. Juuzou was Mutsuki’s mentor and even commented that he was in the position of Shinohara as mentor to a wild child, yet the only wisdom he has passed onto his protege was using knives.

None of them have seen first hand though just how far gone down this destructive path Mutsuki is, so seeing a confrontation between Mutsuki and Touka would definitely open their eyes, giving them a chance to nip that issue in the bud and support him towards a healthier path.

That is, if Mucchan and Aura even go back to the CCG and don’t go off and do their own thing of course! :’)
