drop your anchor

MoreS2SL Snippet - Drop Anchor

Banner by the only, the inimitable, @akai-echo

Summary: Life is complicated, even for two people who love each other as much as Katniss and Peeta do. But when things become too much, sometimes you have to cut your engine, drop anchor and find your way back to each other again.

He returned to his line, tying the lead and hook. She took his moment of distraction to admire him - the broad set of his shoulders and chest, straining under the t-shirt emblazoned with the local surf shop, his swim shorts which lay just above the knee, masking strong, defined thighs. She set her pole aside and knelt between his thighs. “I mean it. I was just thinking how much I missed being alone with you, without a deadline or something else in the way. It’s been months since we’ve had any peace.”

Peeta reached out to run a hand along her braid, flicking the tip with his thumb. “We should get away more often. We’re always at our best when we’re on our own.”

Katniss nodded, reaching up to lace her fingers through the hairs at the nape of his neck. She pulled him down, capturing his bottom lip in hers, licking the delicate skin before deepening the kiss. Heat spread through her, a prickly warmth that had nothing to do with the sun. The fingers of her other hand crept over his thigh, skittering under the hem of his shorts to trace circles on the skin beneath. His hard muscles twitched in time with their kiss. When she pulled back, she ached from the distance. 

“Wanna drop anchor?”

i’ll drop anchor in your heart (1/?)

summary: Single father Captain Hook and his daughter are whisked into a new kind of adventure when land calls to them in the form of the Princess of Misthaven and her son Henry.

a/n: I wrote this originally thinking it was going to be a oneshot, but then I completely latched onto the idea and decided that it needed and deserved more. It’s all I’ve been able to write lately, and I just today passed 35k words on it, so I’ve decided to start posting it. 

Please be understanding about my other mcs not being updated! It’s hard enough struggling to write one while being harassed about two others. 

This is dedicated to @swans-and-pirates, my enabler and #1 beta <3

There are days that he regrets this.

The decks of the Jolly Roger are covered in salt water, blood, and gunpowder. His men are weary, quiet, and in need of solace on land- hopefully including a good bath for each and every one.

Captain Hook is what he insists upon being called. It helps keep curious sailors away from the flag of the Jolly and it’s as gruesome a name as it is a story. But in truth, he’s just a man seeking justice and when he gets it, he’ll find rest once more.

Killian Jones is who he really is at his heart. Killian Jones- a lost boy. A broken man.

Wafers

It’s not your stomach
It’s your soul starving
Famines of the mind
Vigour lost in the bargain

Eating became a chore
Not on your list today
Unused oven mitts
Sold in the garage sale

Infused with guilt
Instead of tea
Non existent appetite
But a palate for misery

Counting calories
Crisp figures
Shrinking waist
Disappearing numbers

You labour in the gymnasium
From dawn to dusk
Fragile anatomy
Now decaying carcass

Scooped out cheeks
Worn out shoes
Supplementary pills
Rings become loose

You only feed your fear
Hungered for gingerbread
Weighing machine
Your only friend

Happy birthday
Sale on skin huggers
Cut a slice of water
Instead of chocolate cake

Distorted images
Float in the field of your eyes
Causing your vision to blur
Life breaks in black and white

Primary colours
Forgotten for a while
Vacant canvas, Dirty palette
Life on trial

Cardboard cut out
Of how you want to be perceived
Compare yourself to paper
Isolating Delusory

Reason is out for lunch
Head is out of shape
Disarray of thoughts
Irrational fears cast a shadow

Sanity is optional now
Daily serenade
Life becomes a battleground
A war within herself

Your mirrors are tired
Let them breathe another day
For they will shatter at the sight of your
Skeletal silhouette

When will you see, you are
Honey glazed croquembouche
When you look in the looking glass
All you see is parsley and Diet coke

Lowering the White mast
Calling in mayday
Drop the anchor
Your ship is sinking

Translucent membrane dissolving
Displaying Ivory beneath your skin
Your body has become a graveyard
Mosaic of skeletons

Pyramid of bones
Will collapse anytime now
Unless you learn to love
From the debris of your heart

The warm sun beat down against your skin as you lounged on the front of the small boat Tig and yourself had rented for the day.  Tig dropped anchor, cementing your spot in the middle of the lake before coming up to lay beside you.

“Enjoying your day?”  He asked, tilting his sunglasses down over his eyes and rolling over to kiss you.  His shadow blocked the suns rays, instantly cooling your skin.

“This has been the best day ever.”  You grinned, wrapping your arms around his neck and kissing him back.

“I think I can make it a little bit better.”  He mused, rolling so that his body completely covered yours before pressing his lips against yours once more.

Love starts with a fluttering of thoughts and attraction, we think “Oh, I could see myself with this person.” and then the fluttering stops and it begins to expand, like your chest is going to burst with all the feelings you hold, yet, it’s simply just that, a feeling.

It’s when you continue to choose daily, saying “I am with this person, and I love them.” So now you go out of your way to show them that they matter, you go beyond what expanding and fluttering can go, and you go to the deepest part of the sea, and you drop your anchor; this is when you have made your choice. There is no going back now, you have bound yourself to the sea, and she is worth being lost in because you realize that you always had the love of her in your blood.

THE FOSTERS MEME » [1/5] favourite characters
↳ Jude Adams Foster

“My first day at Anchor Beach, I got lost. Getting lost is nothing new to me. I’ve been to five different schools in seven different grades and as soon as I learned my way around, I would be moved to a different one. Until I came to Anchor Beach. This is where I found my forever family. I think it’s really cool that the symbol of our school is the anchor. Because before I came here I was always lost, always drifting from one home to another, one school to another. But now I have an anchor. When you’re out in the middle of the ocean, you can be washed overboard and lost at sea. Once you have found your way into a harbour and dropped your anchor, you’re safe. So Anchor Beach is my safe harbour. Being part of a family, whether it’s a real one or one like we have here at school, means you can be totally yourself, totally honest, because you’re safe to do so. I never thought it would happen, but I’m not lost any more.”

Swan Queen & Talk Like  A Pirate Day

 sweetsmilesradiance suggested a fluffy SQ one-shot in honour of Talk Like A Pirate Day, in which Emma and Regina talk like pirates, and Hook gets annoyed lol. Here it is!


Wench! You have the finest pirate booty I’ve ever laid eyes on! I’d love to drop anchor in your lagoon!

Regina stared down at the screen of her BlackBerry, in utter shock and confusion. When she’d received a text from Emma Swan, she’d expected it to be about some sort of Sheriff business, or at the very least, to be about Henry. What she didn’t expect was was what sounded like a pirate pick up line.

“That woman has been spending far too much time with Hook,” Regina muttered to herself, as she quickly typed back a text in response.

I hope you are not at work Sheriff, because due to the incoherence of the text I just received, I can only assume you are drunk. In the middle of the day, I might add.

Moments later, her phone beeped again; another message from Emma.

Pardon me, Lady Mills, but it’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Also, I meant to send that to Ruby. SHE has a sense of humour, you know.

Regina scoffed as she stared at the screen. She had a sense of humour. How else did Emma think she actually put up with her, and most of Storybrooke, without the assistance of alcohol? Well, sometimes with the assistance of alcohol.

But, she did vaguely remember Henry talking about this so-called event. Most of Storybrooke was meeting at Granny’s to celebrate, for some reason. Why anyone wanted to celebrate pirates, was beyond her, as Regina had never met a pirate she was overly fond of.

She also didn’t like being left out, however, and she decided then and there to show Emma who really had a sense of humour.


“Oh my God, she bought that you meant to send that to me?” Ruby laughed, as she looked at the screen of Emma’s phone over her shoulder. The text from Regina simply read:

I see. No harm done. Have a good day, Miss Swan.

Emma laughed and shook her head. “I really thought that would entice her to poof over here,” she said, with a shrug.

“Really? A corny pirate pick up line? You really thought she’d go for that?”

“Well, I thought she’d be annoyed enough to poof over and yell at me, and then get to see my costume!”

Emma was dressed in tall brown leather boots, and the shortest black shirt she could find, revealing most of her toned, bare thighs. She had on a white button down that she tied in the front, so most of her midrift was showing, and sported a plastic eyepatch and a felt pirate hat with the classic skull and cross bones symbol on the front.

“Hook doesn’t look impressed,” Ruby pointed out, and Emma followed her eyes to wear Hook sat, scowling in the corner booth.

“Yeah, I’m not sure if he’s mad because I broke up with him and have the nerve to look this hot in public, or because Talk Like a Pirate Day mocks his life, or something.”

“Emma!” Snow gasped, as she and David entered Grannys, dressed in far more conservative pirate costumes, “what are you wearing?”

“Ahoy Mateys,” Emma greeted, insisting on staying in character - after all, this pirate gathering was her idea - as she picked up two glasses of watered-down rum from the counter behind her and offered them to her parents.  “Take some grog! Drink up, me hearties!”

Henry rolled his eyes as he stepped up behind his grandparents. “Mom, seriously, don’t you think you’re taking this a little too far. I mean, Hook right over there.”

Emma leaned in close to her son. “He didn’t have to come, that’s his choice,” she said, with a wink. She stood up, and a grinned spread across her face as she saw someone approaching from outside.

“Avast!” Emma cried, pointing to the doorway where Regina was about to enter. “Regina off the port bow!”

“Do you even know what you’re saying, love?” Hook grumbled from beside her. She hadn’t even noticed he approached, and she didn’t turn now, as her attention was solely on Regina as she entered the diner, dressed in a white shirt similar to Emma’s but topped off with a tight black leather corset top. She had on a short red skirt and high black leather boots, with a pirate sword sheathed on her hip, that Emma was pretty sure was actually real.

“Holy shit,” Ruby giggled from beside her.

For the first time that day, Emma was at a complete loss for words as Regina stepped right up to her, and leaned in close to her ear. “That’s a mighty fine treasure chest you got there,” Regina whispered huskily so only Emma could hear. “Would ye mind if I fire my cannon in your porthole?”

“Holy shit,” Emma gasped, repeating Ruby sentiment.

“Oh, come on, Miss Swan, that’s not very festive of you,” Regina chided.

“Regina - uh - Lady Mills,” Emma drawled, getting herself back into character, “why don’t you come out back with me and I’ll let you see me urchins?”

Regina stopped and laughed out loud. “You looked these up online, didn’t you?”

Emma grinned and shrugged. “You did too, because I totally had that cannon and porthole one on deck.”

“This is ridiculous!” Hook finally declared. “Being a pirate isn’t a joke!”

With that, he turned and left the diner, and Emma laughed again - a little too tipsy on homemade grog to particularly care about Hook’s hurt feelings at the moment.

Regina just smirked and leaned in close to Emma’s ear. “Well, now that he’s gone, when you’re done playing make believe, we can go back to my place and I’ll let you touch my booty for real.”

Love isn’t something you find
Love finds you
I run and I hide
But I can’t lose You

On a voyage for time
But all my lefts ain’t right
Clouds fog my sight
And I’m a one man crew

So I drop anchor in Your shadow
Your presence is my present, my treasure
So much better than silver or gold

regardless of how you feel

regardless of your circumstance

drop your anchor in Christ

because He’s the only foundation that can hold you firmly

during these troubling changing times

youtube

Love isn’t something you find
Love finds you
I run and I hide
But I can’t lose You

On a voyage for time
But all my lefts ain’t right
Clouds fog my sight
And I’m a one man crew

So I drop anchor in Your shadow
Your presence is my present, my treasure
So much better than silver or gold

So let the warmth of Your arms
Melt my heart of stone
Blow the dust from my eyes
Bring to life what has died
And lead me home
