darkest creature

Voltron Symbolism: Lance Edition

Most people never see beyond the surface of the ocean. They only see where light touches the surface, where the fish and ecosystems are colorful and plentiful. While the surface can be considered showy with its bright colors and life, it is also warm and welcoming.

Most people never see what lies in the ocean’s darkest depths. They never see the creatures of peculiarity living in darkness or feel the frigid temperatures and the burdening weight of the ocean above. Many creatures there are like demons as their hunting methods are vicious and unrestrained and the coldness and pressure is crippling.

Lance is the ocean. He is loud and showy sometime to the point of it being obnoxious, but warm and welcoming. He has layers, each showing a darker bit of his personality. Lance’s darkest depth are the creatures that prey on his fears. His insecurities can feel like the weight of the world. But like the ocean, Lance is not alone. He has friends and companions with him, and all he has to do is reach out.


Teen Wolf AU: Derek’s a wolf and Stiles a fox. Looking for his mother, the youngest finds the biggest danger. The darkest and murderous creature that exist in the forest. It seems like everything will end for the little fox… But then a hunting trap catches the wolf’s claw. That’s when the ingenious Stiles achieves to get Derek free and become friends with him. Or at least the oldest tolerate the hiperactive little fox. Because it’s difficult to have so much patience for the insistence of the child to do the grumpy wolf smile.

Hi Capitu! Thank you SO much for keeping this blog and your LJ, it has saved me so much time and gotten me through so many boring lectures! If it's possible, could I have some creature fic recs with top Harry? I prefer long fics, but I'm starved for pretty much anything! I'd love to hear your favourites. Any creatures are okay. Thanks!

Hi Anon! I’m glad I saved your from boring lectures! LOL I kinda feel I shouldn’t be glad, but hey! I only share stories I love. :D

You didn’t say if the creature had to be Harry, so I’m some of these have creature!Draco. I marked them for you all the same because apparently I have too much time in my hands? ^^ But you might have seen, earlier I made a post with all Veela!Harry, if you’re interested. Also, I know you said top!Harry, but some of these don’t have penetration (those are at the bottom. Heh) and I figured that’s cool, too.

Also, you said you’d love to hear about my favourites, so these recs come with Notes. When I rec I usually make a note about what the story is about and talking a bit about what I liked about it. Sometimes I don’t make a note in these lists, though, because I can get self-conscious and think people don’t need to hear me going on and on, and also because some lists get long. But I guess you enjoy the notes? :)

Anyway, sorry for the long intro! Onto the fics:

Harry Potter and the Inconvenient Condition by mirabella (NC-17, 20,5K, vampire!Harry)
Summary: Harry comes back from vacation with an inconvenient case of vampirism and must learn to cope with blood, Malfoy, and recalcitrant secretaries. And if that doesn’t tell you everything about the plot you need to know, you haven’t read enough badfic.
My notes: I love that summary, and I love this fic. Harry, yeah, comes back from his vacations turned into a vampire and Draco, bloody tease that he is (I always make this pun when reccing this fic, sorry!), makes it all the harder. Er, literally, even. :D

Intended by LadyVader (NC-17, 16,8K, vampire!Harry)
Summary: Due to a little ill-meant meddling, Harry Potter is partway transformed into a Vampire and only Draco’s blood can sate his thirst.
My notes: This is Hogwarts Era. There’s a plot against Harry, and how he’s turned into a vampire who only wants Draco.  So much UST!

Blue Sunny Day by @firethesound (NC-17, 26,1K, vampire!Harry)
Summary: Years ago, Harry Potter disappeared from the Wizarding World. When Draco spots him at a club in Muggle London, well, he just can’t resist the opportunity that presents itself.
My notes: One of my favourite fics by Fire, and like, just imagine how good it is! :D It’s hot, emotional, sweet. It’s everything that is good in a fic. <3

High Priced by dysonrules (NC-17, 33K, veela!Harry)
Summary: Harry Potter discovers he has Veela blood, which requires him to have contact with his “mate” in the form of some sort of physical touching or else he will wither and die. Of course, his mate turns out to be someone extraordinarily unsuitable–Draco Malfoy, who is only too gleeful to finally have something that Harry Potter needs.
My notes: Oh, oh! The sheer pining in this fic, Harry’s desperation at wanting someone who apparently doesn’t want him back. Perfect.

The Weight of Eternity by venis_envy (NC-17, 20,8K, veela!Draco)
Summary: Desperate for survival, Draco takes what he needs from others while avoiding the one he’s meant to be with. His newfound compassion will not allow him to trap the one he loves, even if it means his own life is the price paid for Harry’s freedom of choice.
My notes: asldkfjasldkjfsds!!!! Well. Fics like this one is why we love Veela fics. Pining, delicious pining and delicious sex. But it’s not just that, the writing is beautiful. This fic has a remix (from Harry’s POV):

Time to Eternity by carlrissian18 (NC-17, 16,6K, veela!Draco)
Summary: Malfoy has wings.
My notes: I suggest you read first The Weight of Eternity. These two complement each other perfectly.

Angels and Devils by beren (NC-17, 52K, Veela!Draco, Harry!Seraphim)
Summary: Harry defeated Voldemort: his act of heroism is famous throughout the wizarding world. He’s trying to finish his final year at Hogwarts in peace, but something peculiar is happening to him, something he never would have expected. It’s all rather embarrassing and making his life very complicated.
My notes: Harry is a mythical creature, Draco is a Veela, and, well, Harry courts him. It’s super interesting, this fic.

Animal Attraction by Tari-Sue (NC-17, 19,3K, Veela!Draco)
Summary: A hex gone wrong turns Draco from one of the world’s most despised wizards into the Ministry’s most desirable Veela. Now all he has to do is learn to control Veela Allure gone haywire, try to find a cure and avoid Harry Potter.
My notes: Well, yes, a hex gone wrong and now Draco is a Veela, one who thinks Harry being friendly to him is only because of the allure. ;) Yeah, right. ^^

There’s Something About Malfoy by cassie_black12 (NC-17, 27K, veela!Draco)
Summary: Strange things keep happening to Draco Malfoy, and Harry Potter is determined to get to the bottom of it. He may end up with more than he bargained for.
My notes: This story is AU after OotP, it’s Hogwarts Era, and it’s really entertaining. Check the warnings, just in case! :)

The Living Half by maab_connor (NC-17, 26,5K, Veela!Draco)
Summary: Six years ago, Draco Malfoy nearly died. To save his own life he fled to America. And now, Agent Malfoy of the DHS has Harry Potter sprung on him for a partner.
My notes:  Very cool story, Draco is a Veela, living without his mate thanks to a potion he takes. He lives in America, but his life takes a complicated turn when Harry arrives to train the rookies.

The Arc of the Pendulum by brummell (NC-17, 30,1K, werewolf!Harry)
Summary: After his father casts a mysterious curse on Harry Potter, Draco Malfoy is forced to try to make things right.
My note: Ohh! OH! This fic is amazing! Harry’s animalistic side, all Draco does to save him. It’s simply amazing. You’ve probably seen this story recced before, yes, it’s fantastic.

Rejoicing in Their Strength by Lomonaaeren (R, 34,1K, werewolf!Harry)
Summary: Lucius went mad after the war, and he has killed Narcissa and confined Draco to Malfoy Manor while he does magical experiments on him. Draco escapes at times by astral travel. During one of his journeys, he is astonished to find Harry Potter, who vanished after the war, living in the Forest of Dean.
My notes: Mind the warnings in this fic so it doesn’t catch you by surprise, but if you’re prepared, this fic is pretty awesome. Draco’s been tortured by an insane Lucius, and Harry’s found a way to communicate with him in an astral travel. Then Harry and his pack rescue him. This fic has a sequel that you can find at ff.net: Eyes That Can See in the Dark (15,9K) and this one is about Draco being Harry’s Omega living with the pack.

The Corruption Sequence (series) by beren (NC-17, 94,1K, creature!Harry)
Summary: Voldemort has captured Harry and for his own twisted reasons has chosen not to kill him outright. Revenge in the Dark Lord’s mind requires a fate worse than death and Harry is about to find out what that is.
My notes: Voldemort thinking he’s punishing Harry turns him into a, wow, it’s hard to explain, okay, like, he merges Harry’s core with the darkest of Creatures. And now Harry has all these parts of creatures inside him. And Draco saves him and they are bonded. I know I’m doing a bad job explaining this fic, but it’s pretty amazing, trust me.

Yours is the Earth (Hold on, Hold On) by @chickenlivesinpumpkin (NC-17, 127,1K, creature!Draco) [There’s some switching in this fic, but mainly bottom!Draco)
Summary: When they first meet after the end of the war, Draco doesn’t want anything to do with Harry. But as time goes by, Draco’s growing love may be the only thing that can save them both, because after a serious accident in the Forbidden Forest, Draco’s personality begins to undergo subtle changes. At first, Harry credits this to a new enthusiasm for life. But as the days pass and Draco’s behavior becomes more and more mysterious, Harry begins to suspect that something bigger–and darker–is at work.
My notes: This fic, OMG. Okay, this is one of my favourite fics EVER. It’s mind blowing good. Yeah. I’m going to link  you to my original rec because I could go on and on and on about this fic. It gets better the more you read it. <3

And these are the ones I mention where no one bottoms:

Night Shift by ms_mindfunk (R, 14,3K, vampire!Harry)
Summary: Draco is stuck in career purgatory on the night shift in the Auror Department. The powers that be won’t let him near any important cases, but he knows he can prove himself and get promoted if he can just crack a big case. When Harry Potter shows up after getting himself banished to the night shift as well, how will he affect Draco’s plans?

Eternity With You by winnet (R, 18,4K, vampire!Draco)
Summary: One moment with Harry was worth more than an eternity alone.
My note: A fluffy vampire!Fic. :D Super sweet, featuring friends first, oblivious boys and rescue missions.

The Uninvited Guest by winnet (NC-17, 20K, creature!Harry)
Summary: Harry is cursed with an undeniable need by a spell gone sour by age and disuse, and only Draco can calm his uninvited guest.
My note: Hottest rimming scene ever. But the story is more than that, it’s just that when I remember this fic, well, that scene makes an impression on you. Harry puts on a cursed collar and he’s turning into a were-creature, one that absolutely wants Draco with all his might. Amazing.

If the Sun Goes Black by pasdexcuses (PG-13, 23K, creature!Draco)
Summary: With the perverse clarity of nostalgia, Harry remembers everything that was. The trouble is, he can’t recall anything that is.
My note: This is one cool story. :D It starts as a memory loss fic, Harry waking up to learn he and Draco are a couple and living together, but then we learn there’s something strange going on with Draco, and it turns into a case!Fic of sorts. Pretty intriguing! This fic has a remix:

There Is Always the Moon by @firethesound (PG-13, 159,3K, creature!Draco)
Summary: Draco’s life after the war is everything he wanted it to be: it’s simple, and quiet, and predictable, and safe. But when a mysterious curse shatters the peace he’d worked so hard to build, there’s only one person he can trust to help him. After all, Harry Potter has saved his life before. Now Draco has to believe that Potter will be able to do it one more time.
My note: And in this fic we see the backstory, everything Draco went through, his transformation, asking Harry for help, how they decided to live together, and it’s gorgeous, completely gorgeous. I suggest you read these two together. First If the Sun Goes Black and then this one, oh, so good!

Lord, this got long. So very sorry! <33

A Court of Hearts and Darkness Chapter Five

It’s been over a century since the epic and bloody war against Hybern, but a new, unprecedented horror lies in wait to threaten everything the Inner Circle holds dear.


At a mere 17, it seems that the only one who can save them is the Heir to the Night Court, Feyre and Rhysand’s daughter Eleana, but as a creature so vile promises to kill everyone she loves, she must combat the urge to succumb to the darkness herself. The key to success lies hidden within her mate, the bastard born Kaden, who is as oblivious to the bond as her Court is oblivious to the war on the horizon.

With the help of her cousin and warrior Felix, the son of the famed Nesta and Cassian, they will try to save everything they hold dear, hopefully before the darkness takes them all.

-Chapter Five-

The exercise they were doing was simple enough. First they had to fly through an obstacle course of swinging pendulums all the while being shot at with oak arrows. After making it through that they had to fly to a mountain peak to retrieve whatever the ‘treasure’ was that day. Sometimes it was a person, sometimes it was an object like some gold or a weapon, sometimes it was something random like a book. After you had retrieved this item Illyrians who weren’t part of the aerial unit would try and attack you and see if they can bring you down. They also fired more arrows, except this time they are on fire. And you had to finish it in less than fifteen minutes.

Eleana thinks it is simple enough because she is the only one in her unit to have successfully completed it with a perfect score, and one of eleven other Illyrians in the whole camp.

She wasn’t scheduled to do it today, but practise never hurt anyone.

Eleana also desperately needed something to get her mind off of what had happened the previous night.

She didn’t know what she was more pissed about – Being stupid enough to bring Felix home to a house full of people, herself for not convincing her family of what happened, or about her family having the audacity to knock her out rather than just talking more.

When she had awoken the darkness in her veins was roaring in fury. She needed to get out of the house and she needed to put a damper on her power the only way she knew how – working it off.

She stepped up to the platform, ready to take off.

“I don’t think I need to explain the directive, so I?” Inquired the man who supervising the course.

She scoffed, “Of course not.”

It was less than a minute before a distant bell rang signalling for her to start.

Her wings extended open and in a mighty flap she was soaring through the air. The pendulums were easy to dodge – it was the arrows she had to look out for. With a quick movement to the left and a dive down, Eleana successfully avoided all the arrows shot at her. It continued like this until the last seconds.

Up, down, left, right, left, down, up.

Over and over and over again until she was free flying to the peak of the lowest mountain – ready to get her prize.

She landed swiftly on the platform that today held a golden broach. Eleana wondered what Lady they had stolen that off.

She carefully placed it in her bag. Eyes were everywhere watching what she was doing and grievous treatment of the objects made you lose marks.  The object was meant to simulate something that you might have to get in a war if you were acting as a retrievant for the army. It could be an enemy, a letter, anything they could think off. That’s why they were so incessant that the female squadrons did this simulation as much as possible. It was stupid. Really stupid. The males weren’t made to do it as much and focused more on hand to hand combat. All that achieved was excellent women flyers with not as much brute power as their male counterparts, and males who (even though magnificent flyers) would never attain the skills that the females had.

It frustrated Eleana to no end. She loved to fly and she was undeniably good at it, but sometimes she felt like pummelling someone into the ground. Is that too much to ask? Apparently so. At least she had Felix to teach her whenever they weren’t busy.

She pivoted and went back into the air. The second part was more challenging but she’d manage.

As soon as she was in the air there was an assault of alight arrows. Eleana easily could’ve used her magic to put them out or send them away, but just like her father she had been banned from using the majority of her magic while she was training at camp. When she trained those particular skills she either did it with her mother or father in a secluded place where she wouldn’t accidently hurt someone.

It was almost easy the way she evaded the arrows flying at her – it was instinctual.

The men attacking her are a different story.

A brutish man slammed into her from the side making her lose momentum. She flew in place, facing him.

He, unlike her, was holding a broadsword – one he looked eager to use. An arrogant smirk was plastered on his face.

She smiled innocently at him. Men really should know better by now than to misjudge her because she was a woman.

He swung and she eluded him. This happened a second time, then a third.

His irritation was palpable and Eleana loved it.

He tried again but this time overestimated his own strength. He sung too quickly and too hard and it was almost effortless for Eleana to dodge and swoop so that she was behind to him. Eleana clasped her hands around his neck and clenched her fingers. This was a signal that she had ‘broken’ his neck and it was time for him to leave.

This happened four more times before she steadily landed on the ground in front of her squadron leader, Alixia.

All she wanted to do was fly away again.

Because next to Alixia was a certain thunderous High Lord.

Prompt: aliferous

Written for Celebrating Sam hosted by @spnlittlebro and @ohsamtumbles. It’s not my best analysis, but I still like what I hopefully get across in it.

Wings symbolize a few different things in literature, namely: protection, lightness, and freedom. So it sometimes seems rather ironic that some of the angels in Supernatural have wings because we’ve seen that they have the ability to be dark, just as humans do. There’s Lucifer, and then there’s Gadreel who I know isn’t all bad, but it was wrong of him to possess Sam with the knowledge that Sam wouldn’t want that, and there are other angels as well that didn’t stand up to their angelic nature or symbolism.



When Sam said yes to Lucifer his body was taken over by probably one of the darkest creatures in the universe, yet, in a physical sense he, or his body, gained wings. There’s a lot of irony in this because rather than being granted protection Sam literally had to put up with being trapped in his own head with the Devil free to look through all his thoughts and memories. Saying yes only served to harm him, especially since afterwards he threw himself and Lucifer into the Cage. Sam is in fact in even more danger than ever before when he’s possessed by Lucifer.


I suppose you could take this in a literal sense because Lucifer does mean “Morning Star”, but when you look at it as part of the character we get even more irony. Sam didn’t have any good experiences with Lucifer, and in fact, being Lucifer’s vessel clearly makes Sam feel as if he’s tainted (as if the demon blood wasn’t bad enough). There is no lightness involved with being Lucifer’s vessel. Throughout the earlier seasons and in season 5 Sam often talks about there being a darkness in him, and the show clearly makes it known that the darkness is there because he’s Lucifer’s vessel. What he went through from learning that about himself, from saying yes, being possessed, and then throwing himself into the Cage was all dark. There was nothing light about it, in fact, those things caused Sam a lot of trauma and made his life even darker than it had been before.


My favorite ironic part about Sam saying yes to Lucifer and essentially gaining wings is that wings represent freedom, but in that moment, Sam gave up his freedom. He did it for the chance to save the world, but in doing so he condemned himself to approximately 180 years of torture and degradation in the Cage, and he thought he’d be there for eternity. For Lucifer, Sam saying yes gave him some freedom of his own because he was in his true vessel, but for Sam, he gave up the use of his body, the privacy of his thoughts and memories, the ability to make any choices for himself. Yet, he gained wings. It can also be argued that he gave up his freedom in a different sense as well because even now Sam clearly suffers from what he went through, and that controls how he feels or even how he reacts to things. As someone with trauma I know that in a sense it does take some freedom away from you.


Another time Sam “gained wings” in the show was when he was possessed by Gadreel. However, as we saw in 9x02 “Devil may Care” Gadreel’s wings were severely damaged from The Fall. So what does that mean when thinking about the symbolism of wings? In the case of Gadreel possessing Sam, Sam didn’t give consent, not really. That choice was taken from him, and while the damaged wings show what Gadreel is physically suffering from, it also shows just how messed up the situation is for poor Sam, and that the ideals that go along with wings are not being lived up to.

Wings are supposed to represent positive ideals, and we saw Gadreel’s wings, battered and nearly featherless, and in turn, those positive ideals didn’t end up being true. Dean tricked Sam into giving consent to an angel that they didn’t know to possess him, and his decision to die when the time was right was taken from him, and unbeknownst to him he was not the only one in his body. In a way, this is worse than Lucifer because Sam knowingly consented to being possessed by him, but with Gadreel, his body was sometimes taken over by him at random, and he suffered from missing time and what he at times thought was memory loss. Later, he suffers from the atrocities that he does remember, for instance, killing Kevin. The severely damaged and nearly featherless wings are meant to show that this time there was no choice, not even a little bit of freedom or protection. Sam was trapped and for the longest time he didn’t even know it.

So Sam may have had wings on two occasions, but he’d never been more helpless, and those two instances are the reasons for a lot of his trauma. Even though Lucifer was attempting to appear to be the good guy, he hurt Sam, and though Gadreel was helping Sam in one aspect, he wasn’t respecting his choices. In a way, Sam has had wings, but rather than this being seen in a positive light, those times were some of the most negative experiences in Sam’s life.

Is Ashi the key?

Someone had a post theorizing that Ashi’s heart is the key to her being saved based off of her outfit in episode 9. Could Ashi also be the key to defeating Aku? Jack has never been able to defeat him before even with the sword. Could Ashi, who part Aku herself, be the one to actually kill Aku?  Something like Raven in Teen Titans was the only one to be able to lock her demon dad away or how Mabel was the one to open the portal that got Ford back? In episode 4 Jack said, “even in the bawls of the darkest of creatures there is beautiful light.”

Originally posted by mannyjammy

 That might be foreshadowing Ashi’s redemption but maybe it’s also a hint that Ashi will play a major role in Aku’s death. Ashi is the beautiful light in Aku? Just a theory. 

8. Scorpio

Born under the stars. Born under the soothing warmth of the moon. She was a creature of the night. One could only see her from time to times, in the darkest place in the forest, close to the shining river. Her mind was complex, full of turbulent emotions and thoughts. Only she understood what pain meant. Only she could find beauty in the darkest soul, for she had to learn to find it in her own. The one capable of the strongest rage, the one capable of the most passionate love. She lured her pray, slowly into the mysterious place she called home. She could not see colors in gray. She only saw black, she only saw white. The darkest and most sinister creature turned out to be the most kind, the most loving and the most empathetic. She was the Queen of the night.

omg fuck, the last thing I watched was Disney’s Hercules ❤️

so here’s the Kylux Hercules AU that no one asked for ✨

  • So Han & Leia Organa-Solo are part of the clan of Skywalker gods who act as peacekeepers, and live in the skies above their kingdom
  • Leia gives birth to a beautiful baby boy but her father, Anakin, having fought and overcome the darkness within himself, senses that Ben has the same darkness that drove Anakin to kill his wife and almost destroy the entire kingdom
  • but Snoke, the current ruler of a dark fortress where mortal souls go when the body dies, also senses a disturbance when Ben is born, knowing that such a child could aid him in his plot to eliminate the Skywalkers for good and allow the darkness to consume the kingdom 
  • but when Snoke infiltrates the Skywalker home, he finds that Ben isn’t completely one with the darkness, that the balance of light and dark inside him makes him potentially stronger than any of the Skywalkers that have come before him
  • so Snoke orders his minions to kidnap little Ben from his family and perform a spell on him to eliminate the all of the light inside him, to make him fully dark so Snoke can use him but the minions are interrupted when two mortals, Shara Bey and Kes Dameron, approach and startle the minions away before they fully turn Ben to the dark…there’s still a tiny ounce of light inside him

OKAY I’m putting this under a read more because this is stupidly long now
