Regrets and Reconciliations

Read on ao3

Alec is sitting on the balcony, staring at the stars when Magnus sits beside him.

“You know, I dated an astronaut once,” he says, casually.

The corners of Alec’s mouth quirked up, “Oh yeah?”

“Yeah, he was nice, built, but in the end he was gone for long periods of time, and it wasn’t going anywhere,” Magnus explained, “But it was fun while it lasted. He taught me a lot about the stars, nothing I didn’t already know, of course, but I indulged him.”

Alec laughed softly, “I’m sure.”

“It wasn’t your fault, Alec,” Magnus said, his voice more serious.

Alec’s shoulders tensed, and curled forward defensively, “You can’t say that—”

“Yes, I can, Alexander,” Magnus said, leaning forward and gripping Alec’s chin, “You couldn’t have stopped it no matter what, and to plot out the what ifs….well, it’s as pointless as counting the stars.”

“I can’t stop, Magnus, I know what you’re saying is true, but the thoughts just…takeover, they won’t go away,” Alec said, a hand going up to grip his hair, and Magnus’ heart cracked.

Moving his hand to Alec’s cheek he leaned forward, “I get that, Alexander, but every time you think that, I want you to remember this moment, under the stars, on the balcony, remember when I tell you, it was not your fault, Alexander.”

Alec closed his eyes, and leaned his forehead on Magnus’, “Okay,” he whispered, his eyelashes fluttering, “Okay.”

“Good,” Magnus said, and kissed his cheek, “Now, come with me to the roof and we’ll have a proper stargazing date.”

Alec smiled, and took the hand that Magnus offered to him.



“I love you.”

“I love you, too, Alexander.”

111- Defense Curl

Normal Type: Protection. A spell to keep you safe from harm as you pass through a potentially dangerous place.

What You’ll Need~

  • Some kind of sphere
  • Mint
  • Water
  • A freezer
  • A container


  1. Use a round object, preferably small and made of a hard material. This represents you.
  2. Rub mint on the surface of your sphere. This is to establish the aura of protection around yourself.
  3. Place your ball into a container full of water, and at this point say “From freezing point to when you thaw, I am protected, and will be safe from all harm…” you can finish this sentence with ‘as I pass through (area or scenario of concern.)’
  4. Place in your freezer. When you no longer need the spell, take out your container and let the water in it melt, freeing your sphere, and ending the spell.


  • As usual, you should use an object that will properly represent you.
  • This spell does not have to be used exclusively on physical places.
  • Also, this is not a tip, but typing the word “sphere” over and over again is really weird.


It hadn’t been difficult to slip a few of the… whatever they were from the cart when the man serving them had had his back turned. People here were so oblivious. He hadn’t even seen her trotting off, her prize stuffed into the pockets of the stolen jacket.

Now, with her back against the alley wall, she fished them out, giving them a quick sniff, before taking a bite out of the first one.

…it was startlingly good, and she had to stop, mouth hanging open for a moment, before beginning to tuck into it in earnest. Who knew something shaped like a finger would taste so good?

She was halfway into the second one when the sensation of eyes on her prickled across her bare scalp, and she raised her head, hand curling defensively around the food.

“What are you looking at?”

…it didn’t sound as intimidating with her mouth full.

Day 48: Rammus, The Armordillo

There’s not a whole lot to Rammus. The main thing I think of when it comes to Rammus is his taunt and his ridiculous armor scaling. I went with the latter to represent him using his Defensive Ball Curl ability by depicting his spiked shell. Buy a Thornmail and a Sunfire Cap, taunt the adc, activate Defensive Ball Curl and laugh as they kill themselves attacking you. That’s how you Rammus. Overall, I think it turned out ok.


*Rammus is owned by Riot Games, I claim no ownership of the character, only this design.

I’d like to think

The way the Crewniverse has been drawing Jasper is yet another clue. Jasper has been drawn looking really agitated/stressed.

Like this image: 


Or this one. Or this one

Even this one by Sugar lady herself has Jasper looking different than the others. Mainly she looks like she’s curled defensively inwards and have pulled the blanket tighter around her while squeezing her eyes shut.

There seems to be a pattern of Jasper being drawn agitated, stressed and defensive. 

This pattern and the reason for it became apparent in the episode Earthlings.

This year’s SDCC gave us another Crewniverse drawing with Jasper in it. But a very different looking Jasper. A Jasper with a hibiscus flower. A pink hibiscus flower, which stands for friendship and all kinds of love, not just romantic love. 

What’s the one thing we learned about Jasper in Earthlings?  She’s lost everyone. She has abandonment issues and she is lonely. Love is something she’s never really experienced. 

So I can’t help but think that the addition of that flower to her tux means something. Especially when its a flower that has such a significant meaning and that meaning is contrasting what we currently know in the show.

And especially considering this show’s love for dropping hints everywhere. 

date a girl who can potentially deal the most damage in one single attack through the use of numerous stat boosters; by using Helping Hand by two different Pokémon in a Triple battle, holding a Metronome, Power Trick, a Skill Swap to Pure Power or Huge Power, 6 Attack boosts, and a Mimiced Me First used on a slower Pokemon using the Defense Curl/Rollout combo. Also, her partner must have the ability Flower Gift and the weather must be sunny. On the 15th turn of using Rollout consecutively without any misses, if used against a level 1 Ledyba, Yanma or Combee with minimum Defense stats, that have been hit with negative Defense modifiers (such as Screech), she can deal 481,266,036 damage with a critical hit
