James Potter is going grey

In honour of the grey hair I found on my head today.

Also here:

When James finally starts going grey, you would have thought the entire bloody world had caught on fire.

It’s Sirius who spots it first, the one shining silver strand in the mass of black hair on James’ head. They’re trooping in, brooms over their shoulders, mud on their quidditch boots, and James has Harry wrapped up under his arm, rubbing his head while Harry laughs at James’ insistence that “You can’t slag off your old man. I would have kicked your arse back in the day.”

“Yeah,” Harry yells, elbowing his father in the side, “back in the day.” Sirius barks a laugh, claps Harry on the back, “Nice one, kid.” James shoots him a glare and he shoves James’ shoulder, “Tough break, mate. Though your kid kicking your arse goes nicely with that grey hair you’ve got there. Very fitting.”

When Lily finds them a few minutes later, Harry is doubled over, barely breathing with laughter, and James and Sirius are nothing more than a tangle of limbs on the now excruciatingly muddy kitchen floor. She pulls out her wand, twirls it deftly between her fingers, calmly threatens to hex them within an inch of their lives if they don’t get up right now and clean the floor.

  • James: It's not the chase.
  • Lily: What?
  • James: You and me. It's not the thrill of the chase. It's not a game. It's... it's your tiny ineffectual fists. And your hair.
  • Lily: My hair?
  • James: It smells good. And you're very, very ballsy. It keeps me in line.
  • Lily: I'm still not going out with you.
  • James: You say that now...
Raven Cycle Connections

I’ve been reading my way through some of @maggie-stiefvater‘s recommendations and am enjoying the connections to the Raven Cycle that I’m finding along the way.

The Secret History by Donna Tartt

The Grey King by Susan Cooper

So. This is an update I should have made a l o n g time ago. I have mpd. Essentially it means there’s more than one person inside my head and it’s about time you met them. Well, you sort of have met them. There’s a drawing somewhere and a couple of posts. So here’s an official introduction. Take it away y'all.

;hello!! I’m Luna! I’m 37, so I’m the mother of the mind. I’m an lesbian, and single (wink). My birthday is April 8. I’ve been around for three years though I never told Jade. I didn’t want to scare him so I used an idea he had and convinced him I was a miniature princess Luna, and just an imaginary friend. I actually revealed myself after something happened, and he knew what mpd is.

,I’m Jason, the second alter to form. I’m 17, male, bisexual, demiromantic. I didn’t form in the nicest way but a couple of people set me straight. That was in February. Uh, I like popcorn a lot more than I should. Voltron is pretty cool and so is homestuck. Yeah. Oh and my birthday is June 12. ;)

)HI IM LILY!!!! I’m 11 years old and I like girls!!! But I also like Cole and he’s a boy!!! I like to draw and talk to my mama!! I wanna be just like Jade when I grow up!!!! My birthday is July 20, just like him!!!! I like Voltron a lot and I wanna be like Shiro too!!!! Sometimes I can do cool stuff in our head like change other people ages and mental images, and teleport them!!! It’s silly!!!!!

=hello. I’m Jake. I’m 14 years old. I’m genderfluid so my pronouns change a lot. I’m also autistic (self diagnosed). My special interest is dogs. They’re the most precious animals!!!!!!! I usually go with whatever everybody else is doing.

?Sup I’m Ruby. I actually was an imaginary friend and then jade passed out and I guess I just appeared idk. I was a coping mechanism so he vents at me a lot. Otherwise we yell at each other. I’m 17, my birthday is October 31. You’ve seen a picture of me don’t worry. I’m asexual and aromantic. I like My Little Pony, Minecraft, Steven Universe, and Voltron.

_hi I’m Grey! I’m the newest of the bunch so I don’t really know much about myself. I do know that I’m 15 and I like reading. I’ll learn about myself I guess and keep talking!

So there they are. Their blogs are @trashofficialhomestuck (Jason) @lucky–luna (Luna) @thedogboy (Jake) @autistic-doggo (Jake). Ruby hasn’t decided on a URL yet and Lily can have a blog when she turns 12.

The Ocean Becomes You

Okay so @jilychallenge paired @mollyraesly and I for the February 2017 fantasy challenge with “pirate AU” as our theme. We were both uncertain how to do the challenge because we’re both challenge inept. We started bouncing little snippets of fic back and forth to each other and those tiny dialogues and sentences formed this co-written one-shot. (Molly will probably put it on her accounts as well so please direct reviews to her too, THANK YOU!)

The ocean rippled against the shoreline, dispersing little pink shells across the flat sand. One of them found its way to her toes. She reached down and picked it up, fascinated by its tiny swirls of color and the smoothness of its texture. For a moment, she considered hurling it back into the ocean where it came from, but instead she pocketed it.

A day later, she tied ribbon to it and wore it as a necklace around her neck. The ribbon was blue and the shell seemed to glow against her neck. She thought it was the prettiest shell she had ever found, but the shell wasn’t very important or altogether significant until He made it so.

Lily spotted him by the local tavern first. He had eyes that were as russet as the cinnamon shipped from the isles back to England. He had lips that curved into a sharp smile when she caught his gaze. 

His fingers ran through his black hair as he looked her up and down before settling on her makeshift necklace. “The ocean becomes you, lass.”

“The land less so you,” she said, suppressing a smile as she walked away.
