coral pieces

“I want to be an archeologist. That’s a person who explores the desert and looks for dinosaur eggs and Egyptians. I’ve been thinking a lot about it. I’m already watching Jurassic Park and collecting dinosaur stickers. And once I found a piece of coral in the shape of a heart.”

Heart Race [George Weasley x Reader]

A/N: I’ve literally posted this like six times because I can’t figure out how to italicize on mobile because the mobile version is trash lmao  I’m so mad rn ugggh. I tried that stupid code italicize but it didn’t work but it works when I test it out and ugghhh I hate this app

Summary: (Name) met George in her third year after being pushed down. After another year, what will happen when George has to find a way to keep his feelings for her in check?


To say she was shy would be an understatement.

She had a quiet voice, but a loud mind. That loud mind of hers was full of brilliant facts and opinions, but the quiet voice that she had held everything back.

And to say that it bothered George would be an understatement as well.

No, George was almost offended that she refused to speak your mind. He couldn’t really understand why (Name) felt the need to hide all of her wonderful thoughts, but that didn’t mean he didn’t respect it.

George and his twin met (Name) when she came to Hogwarts at the age of eleven. At the time they were second years who in all honesty didn’t care much for her.

It’s not like they disliked her, they just didn’t know her well enough to care.

However, that all changed when they witnessed her being pushed down in her third year by some fourth year jerks.

Too much creative energy resulted in me completely rearranging this thing. But at least I like it a lot better now ^^

It has two succulents and one small cactus in the middle. Large sea shells and moss, in the back. Pebbles, a piece of coral, and a small quartz geode in the front.

Mipha once exclaimed her love of Hylian courting gestures, often fixing her gaze elsewhere once under the inquisitive gaze of her younger brother. He observed how her eyelids fell heavy, her smile becoming but a taut, forced line. Soon enough, she had her back towards him, now fixated upon the vastness of the lake and the glittering jewels at its surface.

Her voice came moments later, mellifluous and calming, “Sidon, whomever your heart is drawn to, please give them a bouquet. It’s a beautiful gesture.”

Sidon turned his eyes up towards her and blinked.

A small portion of my seashell collection, the more unique ones ─ my mom found all of these while travelling (except for the little starfish, which my friend gave me in elementary school, and the quartz point) 💖 to me, the broken conches (farthest left) look like magical wands, the broken shell on the top right looks like a bat wing and the piece of coral on the bottom right hand corner looks like a mermaid’s tail! 🐚✨

“Never trust a mermaid,” your large eyes turned to your mother, “they could be a siren just waiting to lure you to your death.”

The slow sound of waves crashing on the shore brought these words to your mind as you looked out to the horizon. You had always been drawn to the ocean; from a young child, those words had been repeated to you daily as you often swam off chasing mermaids. Your poor mother tried to interest you in mundane activities, building intricate sandcastles or running around the shore to collect shells. But nothing was as interesting, as enrapturing as chasing mermaids; wading into the water as you stuck your head under and opened your eyes even with the sharp burn stinging sensation enhancing the wide grin on your face.

So! The first round of this went surprisingly well! I got 5 orders, two people ordering multiple bracelets at once, and have already started out some new patterns! Two of my orders have even already arrived and I was informed that they fit well!

These first orders did even make a bit of a difference, at least as far as getting to the end of the month in concerned and being able to pay my rent and important bills. But collections is still calling me and I haven’t made enough to put any money towards paying them off. 

So I am STILL taking orders! I’ve collected a lot more stones at this point due to having to buy a few strands to complete different projects and to make matters easier;


Currently there are only three listings for the three sizes I’m offering but I’m planning on throwing in a few pre-made items as well that will probably be a little cheaper since they’ll require less work for me. Either way, if you’ve had any interest before and couldn’t afford anything at the time, following my store will make it a little easier to keep tabs. No rooting through old tags to try and find that one post. 

As it stands though, I am still pretty desperate for orders because bills still needs to be payed and really the only difference between now and earlier this month is I can at least pay my rent.  And remember, all my prices are CANADIAN, meaning american buyers will be getting a serious deal. 

If you can’t afford anything or it isn’t really your style, please at least do me the favour of reblogging this or sharing at least the link to my store on your facebook or other social media. I need as much exposure as I can get and I really appreciate how far my last post got.

Pairing: Jae (Day6) x reader

Genre: fluff, mermaid!au

Word Count: 848

Summary: You regularly rendezvous with him to exchange little trinkets between your own separate worlds. It’s your little secret. That little secret is about to get just a touch more interesting,


The sea air filled your nostrils with its organic, refreshing scent as you sat, knees propped up and palms leaning back behind you into the wet sand. Beside you, this week’s pile of little trinkets sat in the sand. All in all, there was a small mirror from an old makeup palette, a tin foil origami crane, a couple of glass beads, and a cup of boardwalk fries to share. As you glanced around through the space between the tangled branches, you swept some of the damp earth off of the underside of your legs. It was lucky you’d found this little hiding spot to have your rendezvouses, it was remarkably secluded for being so close to the main beach and so easy to get to. It was around a bit of a bend, so people swimming wouldn’t be able to look straight in, and there were short, gnarled trees cutting it off from the people on the shore. You both had yet to be caught.

As a gentle splash heralded his arrival, a little smile graced your features and you curled your toes in happiness. You got to see Jae once a week, for only an hour or two at a time, and you savored every second of it.

“How’s it goin’?” His voice exuded a sense of casualness and ease, as if there was all the time in the world and nothing to spend it worrying about. It was easy to get wrapped up in.

“Pretty good! How’s the ocean?”

“Same, same.”

“Has anyone figured out where you’re spending your Sunday evenings yet?”

“Nope. You?” 

“No one.”

As he drew closer and closer to the shore, he transitioned from swimming to scooting backwards through the soaked sand until he was perched right next to you. After he settled with the end of his tail gently swishing back and forth in the water, he opened his hands, letting a few broken off pieces of coral, a couple small, long, glassy looking shells in a pale pink color, and a thin rope of weaved sea grass. In its fronds were trapped various kinds of small, colorful shells. It had almost a tribal sort of look, in the most beautiful way.

“Woah, what’s this?” He picked up the origami crane and began examining its folds closely with a fascinated expression. He always looked so excited to see reflective things like metal and mirrors. As he turned it around delicately between his long, slender fingers, you couldn’t help but lean back as your heart fluttered just a touch, and watch him with a sense of delight in having brought this kind of wonder to him.

“It’s a paper crane. Well, not really a paper one. It’s aluminum foil that’s been folded into a bird.”

“Did you do it?”


“Can you teach me?”

“Sure, I’ll bring some foil next week!”

While the two of you started to just talk, you began to roll the shells over in your fingers, admiring their smooth, slick texture. You couldn’t help but glance at the woven sea grass in his hand periodically. However, words were exchanged, conversation and laughs were had, and the hours stretched on with no other notice paid to it until the sun began to fall lower in the sky. This was when he usually left. Right on cue, the conversation lulled to a halt, and he moved a couple of feet down towards the water, and turned back to you.

“Turn around.” 

You crinkled your eyebrows in confusion. “Why?”

“Just trust me.”

So, with a quizzical look, you did as he asked, swiveling around in the sand so that your back was towards him. After a moment you finally understood why as you watched the mysterious sea grass rope pass in front of your face to be draped around your neck. Unable to contain your smile at the sweet gesture, you reached up to roll one of the shells tangled in its strands between your index finger and thumb.

“Whatcha think?” He finished tying the not. You turned back to face him again while still admiring the exotic jewelry hanging in front of your chest.

“Did you make it-” You were cut off by a sudden, closed in sort of darkness. Once your vision adjusted, your heart skipped a beat at the realization that Jae had leaned in until your noses were just brushing, and you could feel his breath against your face. After a brief moment, he leaned forward just another inch, to give you a small, sweet kiss. And the next moment, he was grinning his boyish, unabashed grin.

“Yep, I did.” He answered your previous question as he turned to dive off into the water, leaving you frozen, touching your lips gently with your finger and wondering for a moment whether there was something about that that you could have possibly been mistaken about. There was not. And what’s more, your heart was beating much faster, and you couldn’t help but curl your toes up just a little from excitement. Oh boy, were you in trouble now.

Warning: First DC character I’ve written for. I felt a little bit like an Ariel vibe coming from this and it was cute.
Based on the cameo that is during Superman vs Batman:Dawn of Justice.

anonymous asked:

What headcanons do you have for the merman universe?

I am not sure which one you speak of, but if you’re referring to my Merfolk AU then I have a few headcanons I can provide, though it might get lengthy.

  • Hierarchy
    When it comes to a merfolk’s place in the colony, it mostly relies on the fin structure you’re born with. In Eren’s case, he’s born with a Lunate fin structure good for speed and maneuverability which will classify him to become either a Hunter or Sentinel. The position he takes up on the two classifications is determined of the balance in strength. While Hunters are more on pure speed and agility to catch prey, Sentinels are tested with their durability to withstand large amounts of damage to protect a group and their keen reflexes to spot threats miles away. Eren is a sentinel.

    In Armin’s case, he’s born with sort of a Forked Tail fin structure which is efficient for long distance swimming to keep up with faster swimmers as well as outlast them in stamina. He’d be categories as a Scavenger, who go on expeditions to map out territory and collect beneficial items for the colony with Sentinel guards. But there’s a 1/10 chances that one is born with a hybrid forked fin, like Armin’s. Which would be a semi-lunate forked fin that has it curved enough to be crescent for extra speed. Which now classifies Armin as a Runner. A Runner in a scouting group is like a back up defense when the group’s Sentinels need extra reinforcements. Their job in a dire situation, is to escape and call for extra help. With their unique fin structure, they have the speed and stamina to outrun any predators better than Sentinels or Hunters can, making their role in a scouting group very important.

  • Courtship
    In the matter of courting a potential mate, courtships can start in a merfolk’s life as early as the age of 10 with the permission of their elders. Most common courting methods are to give them gifts, be it pearls, coral pieces, or shells hand made to be accessories. Another way, in the cases of the potential mate is not interested in those luxuries, are to show off their capabilities in providing protection like presenting their hunt for the day, participating in competitions of strength and general showcase of power.

    Now in the off-handed case one is not interested in either courting methods (e.i. Armin), chances of getting them to agree are slim for one of two reasons. One, they’re not interested in seeking a mate. And two, they don’t prioritize mateship as a necessity when it comes to living in a colony. The only moment these types will accept a gift are from family members. And another rare case, they’ll accept it from the merfolk they actually considered courting with. To which, that only gift they’ll accept, is an engagement gift. (yes, that thing on Armin’s head is Eren’s engagement gift to him)

And that’s about a couple of my headcanons for that universe…. But if you were referring to my MereEren AU well…..

I have absolutely no headcanons for this one lol

This AU started out as an off-handed silly drawing in my Attack On Pipan AU photoset or more commonly known as “That one AU where they have tiny versions of themselves that I normally draw while sleep deprived at 5 in the morning” which was based off of The Sand Guardian meme.

It eventually devolved into this internalized joke where Eren is a rather out-of-times merman that washed up on shore one day to proclaim his existence to a extremely secluded beach side owned by Armin’s family estate.

The generalized personality for Eren in this weird AU is that he’s brash, open and has unfiltered honesty that he basically speaks out everything he thinks about while screaming. Well, not necessarily screaming, he more or less just doesn’t have an inside voice because the ocean is vast and verbal sound is muffled underwater so when he surfaces, he’s screaming. forever.
