Here it is, special dedication for that anon who specifically hates cliche marichat balcony scenes. I wrote one at least.
Tagging @baneismydragon who apparently has a throne of Marichat cliches like wow I’m jealous. And it is also for everybody who was super sweet with me yesterday, thank you guys, I love you all <3
Side note: Juliette is the French version of Juliet so no, it isn’t a typo.
Marinette paced from one end of her balcony to the other, while glaring at the papers in her hands. It was well past midnight and she could be seeping just like Tikki was doing at the moment, in her comfortable bed. But no, she was out, repeating the lines for the stupid play. Why did she let Alya convince her she should be in it. Ah, screw that, why did she let Alya convince her she should try for Juliette’s part out of all things. Why was the school doing a Romeo and Juliette anyway? Did they run out of French plays? And even if they had to do it, couldn’t they do the modern version? Which didn’t require excentric old words no one used anymore?
Marinette groaned exasperatedly, before trying another line. Trying to sound sad she recited.
“The only man I love is the son of the only man I hate! I saw him too early without knowing who he was, and I found out who he was too late! Love is a monster for making me fall in love with my worst enemy.”
Marinette let her shoulders drop. That sounded lame even to her ears. Honestly, how was she supposed to make that sound sincere? She was a bad actress, she knew it. The only way she could pull off that line was if Adrien’s father was Hawkmoth or something. Which was ridiculous, of course. Honestly, she should just give up on this, Alya would get over it.
“But soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliette is the sun.”
Marinette turned around, startled to see Chat Noir on the chimney. With all the feline grace he possessed, he jumped on the lower one. Marinette was wonderstruck when she noticed his look. He seemed to be really into it.
“Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, who is already sick and pale with grief, that thou, her maid, art far more fair than she. Be not her maid since she is envious. Her vestal livery is but sick and green, and none but fools do wear it. Cast it off!” Marinette watched flabbergasted as Chat tip toped on the side, careful to not kick her plants while gesticulating wildly, emotion raw in his voice. Extending his hand towards her, he continued. “It is my lady. Oh, it is my love.”
Marinette almost yelled in panic as Chat Noir let himself fall over the edge, but stopped just in time when she heard his voice continuing with the lines. Her eyes trailed across the railing of the balcony as she followed the sound of his voice. And just then Chat appeared again over the railing.
“As daylight doth a lamp. Her eye in heaven would through the airy region stream so bright that birds would sing and think it were not night.” Marinette stood frozen in amazement as Chat stepped towards her. She was captivated and she wouldn’t even bother lying. It was impressive. Not only the fact that her dear partner knew the whole damn monolog of Romeo, but also the way he recited it. It truly made her feel like she was watching one of the most skilled actors putting on a show just for her.
“See how she leans her cheek upon her hand. Oh, that I were a glove upon that hand.” Marinette looked up in surprise as Chat leaned towards her, his next words being whispered. “ That I might touch that cheek.” one gloved finger caressed her cheek gently.
“Oh, my.” Marinette wasn’t even sure if it was her gasping that out loud. Chat got awfully close, but she didn’t mind it, not quite. Marinette realized, she didn’t quite appreciate how nice Chat’s eyes were, even with the cat-like look, they were complementing beautifully his blond hair. She leaned in without really realizing. Not until she captured his lips.
Chat melted against her. It was so much better than that kiss on Valentine’s Day. It was no rush to break a curse or run to detransform. And she could appreciate so much better the softness of his lips and the faint taste of mint. Chat wrapped one arm around her waist bringing her closer. Marinette sighed against his lips. She felt warm and it was such a simply pleasant sensation, their lips against each other.
Marinette let out a grunt of annoyance once they broke apart. It took them a couple of seconds to stare at each other before they jumped away. It finally seemed to drown on them what they had done.
“I got a little… um.”
“And you were…”
“And you just…’
They both rubbed their necks awkwardly, while glancing at each other. Marinette decided she won’t let the awkwardness ruin this night which just took a wonderful turn.
“Do you… do you want to stay for milk and cookies?” she glanced at Chat, waiting for his response.
He smiled shyly, a little blush appearing on his cheeks. “I’d love to.”
*Soulmate!AU where you can’t see the color of your soulmate’s eyes until your eyes meet*
"What the hell does purple look like?!“ Everyone looked up at you. You were at your cousin’s wedding reception, and everyone was talking about what a pretty purple the bridesmaid’s dresses were. You had thought that, for some reason, they were all in gray, which was really weird for a wedding, but your cousin always had been excentric.
The boy who lived. After his parents died in a fire the most evil dark wizard in the world found Ciel and tried to consume his soul. Due to his late mother's love that also rescued him from the flames the dark lord couldn't touch Ciel tho. Yet the enounter has left the boy with a purple pentagram mark in his right eye. Slytherin.
The most evil wizard in the history of magic. 3 years ago he had tried to consume the soul of a scared innocent child, unexpected circumstances caused him to lose his physical form temporarily. Now he is back for revenge, and of course the young boy's soul.
He is the headmaster of Hogwarts and the most powerful wizard to have ever lived. He can see right through Sebastian and is the only one he is scared of. For being so extraordinarily powerful he is quite the goofball and he has a myserious interest in Ciel, probably also because he had an unknown relationship with Ciel's ancestors.
Ciel's best friend. He is a good wizard but somehow he appears kind of incompetent? Ciel trusts him anyway because Soma has never failed him before. Hufflepuff.
Ciel's other friend. She's very book smart and supports Ciel with data knowledge that anyone would consider completely unnecessary to know who's not in as much trouble as they always are. Ravenclaw.
That dumb nasty Slytherin kid who likes to cause Ciel trouble just for the fun of it. He's also (secretly) a coward who's afraid of the dark, ghosts, and snakes...which is the animal he carries on his emblem.
Phipps & Brown:
Those two are constantly, or rather only, found around Grey. It seems they could be much better characters if they didn't support Grey's actions so much. On the other hand they're not even doing much. Maybe they just don't know how to hold him back either?
A very strong wizard who everyone would favoribly strip of his wand if they could. He is very powerful but since he can't control himself he's like a walking death threat. His favorite subject is herbolgy, he sucks at it tho. He is liked by everybody, preferably from afar. Hufflepuff.
An extremely clumsy girl whose wand is at a great getting stolen risk for the same reason as Finny's. Sorting her was quite difficult since the girl herself is always all over the place but in the end she got happy in Griffindor.
He speaks parsel which unsettles many students, other than that he only speaks to translate them, he weirds most people out. He is very close to Finny and his pals but also gets along with Ciel in his own house. Slytherin.
Explosions. He does't seem to manage a single spell, similarily to Finny and Meyrin mentioned afore, but once it comes to brute force and the ultimate distuction he and his two buddies Finny and Meyring are the first to be called upon. Griffindor.
Soma's "little sister" who's had a crush on Ciel practically since forever. Ciel does't trust her to be able to handle his fate though currently he is beginning to see she can, which is good since, honestly, she's so powerful, she could cast him to the moon easily. Maybe he's only been caring too much. Either way, don't underestimate this witch. She's also an excellent Quidditch player. Griffindor.
Elizabeth's real older brother. He is the best boy you could find in the school, sadly his skills are almost nonexistant compared to all those powerful witches and wizards around him. He's practicing a lot, but somehow he only ends up causing his teachers trouble by leaving them his messes to fix. Griffindor.
He's just weird enough to be Professor Sutcliff's favorite. Well, he could have been if he wasn't such a trouble maker causing Grell to lose more than half of her house points just because of him. Ravenclaw.
Head of Griffindor House, transfiguration professor, and deputy headmistress. She's strict but fair. Don't you dare be late for her classes tho, and don't wave around your wand too much! She's the winner type, she accepts nothing less than perfection. She secretly cares about each and every one of her students very deeply.
Head of Slytherin house. He basically always looks as if he hates his job and everything else. He's not talking much and most of the younger students are scared by his face. He's the potions master and will not allow mistakes or misbehaviour from his students.
Head of Ravenclaw house and Charms master. Grell's excentric but accepting and her only complaint is that her house color is blue. That doesn't stop her from only wearing read tho. The nastier student's of the school like to make fun of Grell, Grell's responses do usually cause Frances having to intervene.
Head of Hufflepuff house and herbology professor. He cares very deeply for his students, maybe a little too much. He uses his herbology skills mostly to cook. The nastier students of Hogwarts like to make fun of him but he doesn't care, he' much too good natured.
Keeper of the keys and grounds of Hogwarts. He's basically just sitting arond drinking tea but for his lessons on magical beasts he can become quiet serious. Students who don't know how to behave learn.
Hello new blog friend! Just saw the ask you wrote for Ducky and it was great! But hm, no flame men on this blog yet. Can't have that! Can you please show how the ut, uf, us,sf, and mt Grillbys would react to coming home and seeing their smol lady s/o walking around their house in nothing but one of the fellas button up shirts? ;o) (lol thank goodness the guys dont have roommates)
UT Grillby: He had a long day at work and comes home exhausted, only to be greeted by your cute, small self, only wearing one of his shirt like a dress, tiptoing over to him and giving him a smal kiss as a greeting. His flames crackle loudly and glow brigther then before. He stands completly still, drinking in your sigth, before swooping you up gently and returning that kiss. He thinks you look very cute.
US Grillby: He is a bit of an excentric fella, and all of his shirts have a colourfull pattern on them. When he comes home the smell of his favorite tee greets hm and he skips over to the kitchen to join you. Beeing the smallest of the flamesman, his shirt reaches barely over the end of you hips, exposing your legs completly. His glasses crack sligthly from the sudden rise in temperatur. He hugs you from behind, and steals one of te tea biscuits you were about to eat. You both are to cute for your own good.
UF Grillby: It was a shitty day, and he comes home grumpy like not often. He normally can keep a cool head, ironically enough, but today was really not his day. He opens the door, and freezes in his tracks. Ho boy, his mood just took a 180° turn. He is the tallest of all of them, and his shirt is reaching almost past your knees, hanging loosely from your shoulders, leaving your neck and parts of your shoulders completly uncovered. He will drape an arm around you and pull you closer to him. He is a slow seducer, even in this kind of moment.
SF Grillby: He is very easily flustered, so when he opens the door, and his eyes fall on you, prepare the fire exinguisher, his flames shoot up to the ceiling, glowing the brightest purple. He will get handsy rigth then and there, and his flames will burn brigther then normally for the rest of the day.
Note; brief mention of death, pictured Emmy Rossum as Nina, slight swearing.
It was an average day in the small and quaint town that I
lived in, nothing very special about the day. I had work at the local coffee
shop, Grundy’s Grind, and I was babysitting tonight - two toddler twins, Bella
and Ben. Not much of an excentric lifestyle, but I managed.
I needed to save up money for University anyway, and since I
decided to take a gap year to save up money for school, I took and did what
needed to do. Plus, I was going to be staying on campus, which was extra money.
Why I chose to go to Manhattan Art Academy, I have no idea.
In the years of his life, ignoring impredictable sorrow and grief, Her Royal Highness, shows the same bulimia for pleasure, stays in his irrepressible frivolity, spreads his excentricities and races in a multitude of emotionnal attachments.
Yo, Senpai ❤️ May I ask for some funny/fluffy HCs for Sabo, Zoro, Coby and Ace with an s/o who was pretty reserved at first, but months later opens up & turns out to be a total dork? For example: surprise cuddle attacks, challenges them to mock-battles daily, pretends to be a wrestling champ, pranks them. (What was this, I'm so sorry, this is so weird I put too much thought into this) I feel like Coby's reaction would be the most amusing tbh. Too specific??? I'm sorry T_T Thank u. I luv u <3
DAWWWWWW YOU ANGEL YOU, of course I’ll do it, I LOVE U TOO! btw did I just spot BOTH Sabo AND Coby? *swoons*
yeah sure he’s perplexed and wonders if everything is alright with his s/o
because a change in personality can catch him off guard a little
but then he would LOVE it, like just enjoy all the cuddle attacks and pranks and whatever
He’s a prankster after all so they might as well prepare for some battles of life and death
you’re wrong there honey
Zolo’s reaction is the funniest
watch this man get completely perplexed at his s/o doing these kind of Luffy/Usopp/Chopper antics
lol Zoro you actually thought you could get it with someone mature and quiet right?
After a while he will just settle with this and accept his fate
this will surprise him so much lmao
like he would blush like mad and not funtion properly
every excentric thing his s/o pulls would make him get flustered so badly
I mean he’s the blush master after all
but they would also make his heart skip a beat, he just thinks they’re the funniest and most adorable person in the world
Awww his reaction is so adorable
because he held back all his affections when he saw his s/o’s initial shyness and now he can be the big dork that he always is
I mean he already thought his s/o is hella enchanting before but this boosts everything
Some of you are probably familiar to the quest “Brain
Dead” from “Far Harbor”, Fallout 4’s latest DLC. If not, be
wary, [SPOILERS] ahoy!
A few weeks before Fallout 4’s release, Autumn Leaves, a Fallout : New Vegas Mod was published on the
Nexus. It featured a colorful cast of excentric robots, in charge of a
forgotten Vault where a strange murder happened. Sounds familiar ?
Maybe, to those who played Far Harbor’s “Brain Dead.”
It was only recently that a nice fellow nicknamed
“endolex” brought to my attention that there was several similarities
between the two. Since I didn’t play “Brain Dead” myself, I did a bit
of research on Let’s Plays and Youtube. AND SOON :
Wow, there, people. I knew that Bethesda was keeping an eye
out on mods and taking the best ideas to integrate them in their future installments (like they did for Wasteland Defense for Fallout 4), but this!
Let’s take a look at it for ourselves.
The comparison :
First off, both quests begins with a discussion through an interphone
with the caretaker of the Vault, a headwaiter robot with a rather distinguished
persona. The big mandatory Vault Door opens, leaving the player up for the
exploration of said vault.
Up till now, nothing unusual, as Vaults are popular locations in Fallout’s universe. Is all gud.
The main quest itself, which consists in
investigating the murder by checking the crime scene, and speaking to every robot in the Vault :
The mysterious death of the prime financier of the Vault, who - in both cases - worked alongside Vault-Tec to build the special place.
The importance of voice modulators in the plot, to distinguish the robots
The sexytime moment.
And of course, the mandatory “Let’s discuss paintings
with a robot.”
Then, there’s the Neural Interface Matrix in
BD versus the Neuro Comp Matrix in AL, the presence (and relevance to the plot) of a robotic expert in the Vault,
the feel of the central atrium, the quasi-exclusive robotic cast confronted to a murder, the misleading piece of evidence
(Keith/Rolland), among others.
Now, now, truth be said, I honestly thought Bethesda’s staff
played Autumn Leaves, had a blast with it (I hope) took some things out of it
and made their own thing for Far Harbor. And I seriously think this is perfectly
okay. After all, Autumn Leaves’ inspirations are countless (Asimov’s, Cluedo,
Planescape : Torment, Arcanum, older Fallouts, etc.) and being influenced is a natural part
of the writing process.
Why am I making a post of it? (With quite the big headline, at that.) Well, to raise some awareness of Autumn Leaves, really. Since I witnessed
the interest that “Brain Dead” had raised from the players, I thought
it would be cool to jump on the occasion to tell them that more of this kind
of quests exists. (Though Autumn Leaves lasts around 6 hours vs 1 for BD.)
Since Autumn Leaves was out but a few weeks before Fallout 4, I
always felt that people didn’t have the occasion to discover it by the time they
jumped to F4. On another note, I also fear that people who played Brain Dead
would stumble on Autumn Leaves and ignore it because “Oh, hey, it’s Brain
Dead all over again!"
So, if you liked Brain Dead, want to play a
"Whodunit”, but with entirely different themes, different writing,
different plot, different music (!) different voice acting (!!) don’t hesitate to download Autumn Leaves.
Aries- “What do you mean I’m too old to go sky diving? I’m going sky diving and there’s NOTHING you can do about it!’
Taurus- "You haven’t eaten today? What? Well let me get you some cookies..and a sandwich.. Don’t touch that. That’s ANTIQUE. Hey let’s go to Costco!”
Gemini- “Want to go to the zoo? The museum? Aquarium? Want to go for ice-cream? You’ll never guess what your aunt said to me about your cousin…”
Cancer- “I’m so glad you all made it! I made cookies and brownies and I bought chocolate and I made you a new sweater! I love you!!!”
Leo- “Look at all the new stuff I bought you! I hope you like it, oh I know you’ll like it! How about I tell you about the time I won prom queen in ‘76..”
Virgo- “ Take your shoes off please. Don’t put your elbows on the table. How’s school going? Wait! Who didn’t wash their dishes!?”
Libra- “I got this new lotion.. Would you like some? Do you like my nails? And look at my new painting.. It’s nice, isn’t it? Did you need any advice sweety?”
Scorpio- “You know I love you very much… So much.. Did I ever tell you about when I was in the war? I don’t usually talk about it, but I think you’re ready for it.”
Sagittarius- “Look what I brought you from India!! Oh my goodness and look at this lovely necklace from Spain. You should come with me to my new yoga class, you’ll love it!”
Capricorn- “I wanted to talk to you about college. Do you know where you’re going yet? You know you could go anywhere in life, it just takes hard work. You should really start investing your money.. I’ll help you get started”
Aquarius- “You know back in the 60’s, I had just gotten busy streaking back then. I’m thinking of dying my hair blue, we should go together! How do you feel about "a tofu turkey” for Thanksgiving?“
Pisces- "It’s alright honey.. It’s okay to cry, don’t worry I’m right here. Let’s sing a song, they always make me feel better. Just let it alllll out and tell me everything that’s on your mind.”
