Skadhi’s Care

Skadhi, my goddess of ice and cold
Find me, and nurture my vengeful soul
Skadhi, mountain huntress, fierce
Cloak me, in shadows never pierced

Skadhi, the falcon in its dive
Guide me, to those not worth their lives
Skadhi, the chill that gnaws on bones
Teach me, the wise-wolf’s sacred tones

Skadhi, who preys on predators
Hunt with me, this realm’s abusers
Skadhi, Great Öndurdís
Keep me, in the life after this

This poem is made with the verses from a song I wrote for/about Skadhi - if I get the chance i’ll try to record the song and get it uploaded

“Falcon in the Dive” - The Scarlet Pimpernel

Once again I’m pimping out my high school’s musical production from last year because I played in the pit and am kind of obsessed. Chase has the most beautiful voice you will ever hear. I’m serious, he rivals Broadway singers.

Time to cry about STAR WARS fic? Ha ha, trick question, it’s ALWAYS time to cry about Star Wars fic. This is what life is now. Crying about Star Wars, especially via fic.

STAR WARS FIC RECS:

   The Twins are unstoppable enforcers of the Emperor’s will, the sun and moon that hang in the black void of his rule. It is said they are not the same age and that under their hoods they do not look alike, but they fight as one entity, silent and terrible as an eclipse in a spring sky.
Capture and Release by Rocket_Sith, obi-wan/anakin, mild bondage, 19k wip
   Anakin’s past comes back to haunt him unexpectedly during a mission. What starts as Obi-Wan’s attempt to help him face his fears takes on a life of its own and evolves into so much more.
Heart of Kyber by Eirian Erisda, obi-wan & cast, 3k
   With part of the Open Circle Fleet docked for some much-needed shore leave after a harrowing battle, Obi-Wan gives the rest of the 212th the slip and wanders planetside alone.

The Light You Leave Behind by laventadorn, obi-wan/anakin & anakin/padme & ahsoka & bail & asajj & cast, 28.6k wip
   Ahsoka has left the Jedi Order, and Anakin is haunted by the last words he spoke to her on the steps of the Temple: “I understand, more than you know, wanting to leave the Order.”
He Watched by temple_mistress, obi-wan/anakin, NSFW, 22.1k
   Obi-Wan secretly watches Anakin in lightsaber practice. Anakin is not having any of it. At all.

   There was no way his Master wouldn’t see that bruise, and so now Anakin was hiding.

The Curious Feeling of Falling by Eirian Erisdar, obi-wan & anakin & qui-gon & cast, 2.6k
   There is a common misconception that Obi-Wan Kenobi has never felt the pull of the darkness.
A Falcon in the Dive by Eirian Erisdar, obi-wan & cast, 1.8k
   A dive is so very different from a fall. Obi-Wan dives into the unknown. From the Temple gardens to Naboo, Mandalore to Utapau, and in the Unifying Force to another Falcon altogether.

   “Disturbing, these findings are.” Master Yoda’s ears droop slightly, as his clawed hand gently lays the datapad he held back on the table.
Meet the Skywalkers by frodogenic, anakin & piett & luke/mara & han/leia & jacen & jaina & anakin solo, 34.8k wip
   Newly returned from the Unknown Regions with Darth Vader, Admiral Piett doesn’t expect much of a welcome from the New Republic. And not in a million lifetimes would he have predicted that their very first guest would be Luke Skywalker. After all, Vader is still his mortal enemy…right?
untitled by stonefreeak, obi-wan & cast, ~1k
   Obi-Wan is tired. So, so, tired. He rubs a hand over his tired eyes, wanting nothing more than to go to sleep and not wake up until the war is over.

About the Seeker class

~Support class
~long-distance

”You know what’s better than flying? Flying whilst kicking ass. And birds”

WEAPONS
:

primary- hand-crafted long-bow

secondary- assault rifle

melee- wrist daggers

ABOUT:

The seeker class is the 10th class, under the support title .

Seeker is responsible for taking out important enemies (like the sniper) and informing the rest of the team of what is “coming up next”. Hence, the “seeker”. Seeker is winged and therefore can fly above the fight and view the entire battlefield, allowing them to see the next wave of the opposing team. They will then alert their teammates of this wave and who it contains.
    ex: “We’ve got two scouts, a heavymedic pair, a demo, and four freaking snipers, ya nasty bastards. Get a move on!”

Seeker’s can also fight melee quite well, though their defense lowers once out of the sky (wings slow down running speed, give more to attack, and decrease agility on the ground, though they are also dangerous to be too close to)

Ubercharge: Ubering a seeker is only useful in a crowded area, since sky-bound ubers are a no-go. She will go ballistic once invincible.

Health: 175
Speed: air~ scout’s speed  land~soldier’s speed

ABILITIES:

Swoop crits:

The seeker can fly to a high altitude before falcon-diving, reaching 600 mph. She will then swoop into the enemy mercs with her wrist daggers, killing them instantly (instant mega crits that will kill enemy despite circumstance (excluding ubercharge)). These are only available after the flight meter has charged


AERIAL ATTACKS:

Seeker may pick up a merc for an aerial attack. She can only perform this with: Demoman, Scout, Medic and Sniper.
(engies, spies, pyros cannot do much in the sky. Heavy is too large. Soldiers get up on their own and refuse to be assisted)

Demo: signal call ~ “dropping the bomb” 

  • jumps off for sword/axe attacks (landing on enemy)
  • shoots bombs n grenades into hard to reach areas

Scout: signal call ~ “speed lift”

  • shoots from her back
  • goes the fastest of the three
  • jumps off for melee attacks as well
  • dropping mad milk

Sniper: signal call ~ “arrow storm”

  • shoots from back
  • if both are wielding bows, they get random mini crits
  • dropping jarate jars

the only exception that they cannot be carried when possessing the intelligence


The seeker cannot fly with the intelligence, she must run 

Lines: (still being made. Feel free to drop suggestions)

Taunts (class specific):

  • Spins around and flares wings out with a cheer
  • puts up both middle fingers and jokes about being a bird giving the bird
  • puts out her arms for many birds to land onto
  • singing taunt
  • varied bird calls
  • hugs another merc while aloft (may cause them to spin or stumble)
  • blows a kiss
  • sits criss cross with chin in hands
  • wing preening
  • wing push ups
  • impersonates a merc (random)
  • all official all class taunts
  • overly enthusiastic fist-pumps
  • takes out sucker and sticks in mouth
  • air tricks and flips

Mythological Beast AUs -Bird!Pitch and Mer!Pitch

Bird Pitch is a harpy of sorts that bears no resemblance whatsoever to Tooth *cough*. With miraculous silent flight and insatiable predatory hunger, he can snatch falcons out of a dive. His feathers are pure black. Inspirations for this were birds of prey, naturally, and bearded vultures.

Merman Pitch is a king of the deep sea and the patron saint of drownings. He delights in sinking ships and stranding sailors to die on remote rocks and lifeless islands. During the day he appears as a dark, serpentine shape circling in the water -by night, the tips of his barbed fins glow a pleasant gold, like stars in the deep -a deadly deception. Inspirations were eels, lampreys, sea snakes, angler fish and lion fish.

At the same time he noticed Rey staring fixedly out the foreport. She seemed on the verge of tears. “Hey—y’okay?” “I didn’t know there was this much green in the whole galaxy,” she said in awe. He watched her for a moment longer, then sent the Falcon into a shallow dive, heading for a well-remembered location. Speed stripped away the clouds around them, revealing what looked like endless evergreen forest. As he slowed the ship to suborbital velocity, other features lingered in his passengers’ gaze: rolling hills, rivers, and lakes that glistened like sheets of silver foil.

So, this is how Chauvelin should be done. This man, his voice. My god. 

True story, I was at the stage door and he made fun of my lack of balance. I was trying to take a picture of someone and fell into a bush and he was just “Looks like the bush is winning” (And when I saw him in Much Ado about Nothing, Doug Sills made a quip about how at least I’m not driving yet when I was fifteen…. I regret nothing)
