anonymous asked:

So, you posted the quick history of Olexians quite a while ago, but I'd like to ask what it means by hoofed feet and animal heels?

there’s your arbitrary lieutenant fact of the day 

BTS Creature AU

Namjoon is a werewolf and the future Alpha of the Ilsan Kim pack. Despite the norms he’s part of the small circle of his species who doesn’t actually hate vampires.

  • Always felt like a lone wolf among his pack
  • Has an alarming high IQ, which sets him apart from other wolves even more on top of being singled out as the child to an Alpha
  • Literally could not give two shits about becoming one though and lowkey hates the title
  • Neville Longbottom-ed the hardest out of his group of peers when puberty hit him like a brick, like jfc ya boi got legs for d a y s
  • Meets Yoongi when the vampire transfers to his high school
  • Uses a kind-of secret symbol thing that only other vampire’s can see that gives a sign that they’re chill with one another. This brings about Yoongi’s interest, especially considering Namjoon’s future-Alpha status
  • Backstory, he got that secret symbol thing at Ilsan’s sole co-species club after he kind of went down on a vampire who did him a solid afterwards by giving him it
  • They had their last class together and start to bond

Yoongi’s older than high schoolers should be but he had to leave his education because he was bit by a vampire, okay? Fledglings don’t have a good hold over their bloodlust so it wasn’t until he got control of himself that he went back. Unfortunately he chose a heavily werewolf-controlled high school and he’s working on transferring. Or, he was. Then he met Namjoon.

  • He’ll admit Namjoon is kinda hot, alright? But he’s a werewolf and that’s a no-go but–oh shit that’s a we’re chill symbol okay Namjoon’s definitely hot
  • Only his family is fucking awful holy shit
  • They meet in tenth grade and somehow keep their relationship a secret for two years which is impressive considering the way Yoongi’s scent tends to cover Namjoon sometimes
  • They plan out their senior years together because Namjoon is Done With This Shit™ and he doesn’t want to be an Alpha for a bunch of xenophobes thanks
  • They do a final Fuck You™ to the Ilsan Kim pack after graduation before grabbing all of Namjoon’s shit and leaving. Yoongi might have shone up at his doorstep (making him the first vampire to step on their ‘sacred lands’ in centuries) only to whisk away their now former future Alpha
  • They might have exchanged mating marks just before that final Fuck You™ so everyone in Namjoon’s family can smell Yoongi on him too
  • They move to Seoul afterwards and start trying to make their own way on the money Namjoon’s saved and the large sum Yoongi’s now deceased sire left him

I think it’s time for a read more.

A Little Something Interesting:

Norse Mythology

Mesoamerican Folklore

East Asian Folklore

Slavic Folklore

A mess of random, fascinating creatures and concepts from throughout world history, all suggested to us by the cunning @to-write-my-book!

Hopefully you’ll be able to put some of these concepts to good use in your fiction or otherwise. At the very least, you can use it to impress your drinking buddies with your now vast mental catalog of esoteric beasties! That’s something humans do, right?…

Anyway, here’s to creativity and copying good ideas. Cheers! Enjoy the thought-fuel~

Throwing my theories onto the fire asto the science of mythical horse-butted babies. 

nO THIS WAS NOT an excuse to draw tiny chubbly-wubblum baby Clyde and lanky knobbly foal legs. NEVER.

FOR SCIENCE! Like gestating in the horse half would mostly remove the limitations of the human pelvis that restricts the size of a babies head so a foalby could be born mostly ready to go with just a small period of intensive care that human bebes require. Also adding unique behaviors while solving my personal problem with wtf centaurs do with their hands/arms when running. Obviously they wouldn’t do the tuck and run all the time but if you’re scared you don’t want extraneous limbs flapping about throwing your balance off if they weren’t necessary.

Beautiful AU

‘You know what, I’m all in for owning your soul to the end of times, it is my job as a demon, but even I have standards, and you’re asking way too little for it, especially because I’ve been productive as fuck lately and don’t really need such pity jobs, but I’ll tell you what: whatever you’re cooking in there smells delicious, so I will pretend to be your date for the dinner with your friends, as you asked, free of charge, and then next time you actually have something worth losing your soul for, well, then you draw the pentagram again and ask for me, yeah?’ au

here’s a bunch of doodles for you anon~ i like to imagine they met by chance–the masked creature wasn’t meant to be seen, but she was, and by a human! but the human showed no fear to the obvious danger which the creature found strange, so thinking it couldn’t fend for itself she adopted it without a second thought. the human doesn’t seem to mind this either.
