✧ — Phantom of the Opera Prompts.

❛ My power over you grows stronger yet. ❜
❛ Phantom of the Opera is there, inside your mind. ❜
❛ Your part is silent, little toad! ❜
❛ Perhaps it is you who are the toad… ❜
❛ Flattering child, you shall know me, see why in shadow I hide! ❜
❛ Seal my fate tonight. ❜
❛ I hate to have to cut the fun short, but the joke’s wearing thin. ❜
❛ Let the audience in. ❜
❛ God, give me courage to show you you are not alone! ❜
❛ Pitiful creature of darkness, what kind of life have you known? ❜
❛ I heard as I’d never heard before. ❜
❛ What you heard was a dream and nothing more. ❜
❛ Those pleading eyes, that both threaten and adore… ❜
❛ That voice which calls to me and speaks my name. ❜  
❛ And do I dream again? ❜
❛ You have come here, in pursuit of your deepest urge. ❜
❛ I have brought you, that our passions may fuse and merge. ❜
❛ In your mind you’ve already sucummed to me. ❜  
❛ Now you are here with me. No second thoughts. ❜
❛ Past the point of no return. ❜
❛ What raging fire shall flood the soul? ❜
❛ What rich desires unlock its door? ❜  
❛ What sweet seductions lie before us? ❜
❛ Those who have seen your face draw back in fear. ❜
❛ Did you think that I had left you for good? ❜
❛ Down once more to the dungeon of my black despair! ❜
❛ You’ve past the point of no return. ❜
❛ You try my patience make your choice. ❜
❛ I gave you my mind blindly. ❜
❛ Wandering child, so lost, so helpless, yearning for my guidance. ❜
❛ Have you forgotten your Angel? ❜
❛ Wildly my mind beats against you… ❜
❛ Think of me, think of me waking, silent and resigne. ❜
❛ Imagine me, trying too hard to put you from my mind. ❜
❛ Can I ever forget that sight? ❜
❛ Can I ever escape from that face? ❜
❛ Past the point of no return - no going back now. ❜
❛ When will the flames, at last, consume us? ❜
❛ When will the blood begin to race? ❜
❛ I remember… there was mist. ❜
❛ Who was that shape in the shadows? ❜
❛ Whose is that face in the mask? ❜
❛ Damn you! You little prying Pandora! You little demon! ❜
❛ Is this what you wanted to see? Curse you! ❜
❛ Now you cannot ever be free! ❜
❛ Come. We must return. ❜
❛ Those two fools who run my theater will be missing you. ❜
❛ No kind word from anyone! No compassion anywhere! ❜
❛ Say you’ll share with me one love, one lifetime. ❜
❛ Lead me, save me from my solitude. ❜
❛ Say you’ll want me with you here beside you. ❜
❛ Anywhere you go, let me go too. ❜
❛ Can you even dare to look or bear to think of me? ❜
❛ Have you no pity? ❜
❛ Your lover makes a passionate plea. ❜
❛ Let your mind start a journey to a strange new world! ❜
❛ Leave all thoughts of the life you knew before! ❜
❛ Only then can you belong to me… ❜  
❛ You alone can make my song take flight. ❜
❛ It’s over now, the music of the night. ❜
❛ Twisted every way, what answer can I give? ❜
❛ Say you love him/her, and my life is over! ❜
❛ Now, let it be war upon you both! ❜
❛ See you later, because I’m going now. ❜
❛ This haunted face holds no horror for me now. ❜
❛ It’s in your soul that the true distortion lies. ❜
❛ For the past three years, these things do happen! ❜
❛ And did you stop them from happening? No! ❜
❛ Why have you brought me here? ❜
❛ We can’t go back there. ❜
❛ I can’t escape from him/her/them… ❜
❛ Raise up your hand to the level of your eyes! ❜
❛ Refuse me, and you send your lover to his death! ❜
❛ Go now, don’t let them find you. ❜
❛ I fought so hard to free you! ❜  
❛ Say you love me. ❜
❛ Your chains are still mine! You belong to me! ❜
❛ Wait! I think my dear, we have a guest. ❜
❛ I had rather hoped that you would come. ❜
❛ Free him/her! Do what you like only free him/her! ❜
❛ Does that mean nothing I love him/her! Show some compassion! ❜
❛ The world showed no compassion to me! ❜
❛ Did you think that I would harm him/her? ❜
❛ Too late for prayers and useless pity! ❜
❛ You little demon - is this what you wanted to see? ❜
❛ Farewell, my fallen idol and false friend. ❜
❛ Look around, there’s another mask behind you! ❜
❛ Please promise me that sometimes, you will think… of me! ❜
❛ Where in the world have you been hiding? ❜
❛ I only wish I knew your secret. ❜
❛ Who is your great tutor? ❜
❛ Why you spray on my chin all the time, huh? ❜
❛ The final threshold! ❜
❛ They say that this youth has set my lady’s heart aflame! ❜
❛ Go away, for the trap is set and waits for its prey! ❜
❛ There is no phantom of the opera. ❜
❛ Look, your future bride! Just think of it! ❜
❛ Please don’t, they’ll see. ❜
❛ But why is it secret? What have we to hide? ❜
❛ It’s an engagement, not a crime! ❜
If Harry Potter had been sorted in Slytherin House.

In the first year, Harry Potter decides to shake Draco Malfoy’s hand when he first offered to be friends. Even though he doesn’t like to admit it, it is Voldemort that spoke for him at that moment. Immediately after, he’s sorted with the blond in Slytherin. They team up quickly and Harry convinces Malfoy that Snape is not the nice guy. Harry discovers how Draco Malfoy was raised by a racist family and fights a lot with Malfoy and his nasty comments because he knows what it is like to be rejected for something you have no control on. Harry (and Draco, though he doesn’t want to admit it) becomes friends with Ron and Hermione when they find Ron, by himself, looking for Hermione at Halloween. Draco and Harry were sneaking out, trying to find the troll for the lols of it and Ron was doing according to the canon storyline. The four of them don’t completely get along first, mostly because Draco cannot stand the mudblood, but after heated arguments and a deal on the quidditch field (”If I catch the snitch, and I will, before you make a single goal, Malfoy, you stop calling Hermione a mudblood.”) he finally accepts to keep his mouth shut and roll his eyes a minimum when they hang out with the Gryffindors. The four of them goes in the trap for the philosopher stone. Draco helps Hermione carrying Ron to the infirmary.

In the second year, by having a true friend, Draco jerk attitude gradually fainted. Harry and him, both understand each other without words ever needed. They also hang a lot with Ron and Hermione. Draco is always quiet when they are with them. He’s too busy rolling his eyes. Harry tells Draco about Dobby and Draco forces Dobby to stop trying to kill his friend and tell them about the Chamber of Secrets. They practice Quidditch together all the time. Draco complains about his dad a lot. They use polyjuice to spy on the teachers to learn more about the chamber of secrets, instead, all they learn is about McGonnagall’s wife. Draco and Ron are both with Harry in the Chamber of Secrets but are separated when Lockhart uses Ron’s wand. They let Harry go find Ginny and stay quiet for a bit. After a couple of minutes, they start talking and recognise that they have a lot more in common than they thought. They start arguing about their collection of chocolate toads cards.

In the third year, Draco was with Harry, in the train, when the dementors strike. He says a sassy comment when Harry wakes up after fainting, yet he did hear a woman screaming. It was his mum. Screaming at his dad. They always fight. He’s jealous that Harry spends time with Lupin. He feels lonely. He hates the other Slytherins. Especially, Pansy Parkinson. She’s always following him around. He finds himself spending more time with Ron and Hermione in order to avoid her. They talk about how shitty is Divination class. Pansy Parkinson is the one that gets hit by Buckbeak. She wants to impress Draco. She’s the first one to notice that Draco is hypnotised by Harry Potter. She hates it. Draco is the one that falls off his broom. He cannot participate in the saving of Buckbeak nor Sirius because he’s in the infirmary for a long time (don’t worry Harry visits him often).

By the fourth year, we get to see both of characters to evolve together, tease each other, flirt with each other under sassy comments. Draco helps Harry getting ready for the Triwizard Tournament. Harry finds Draco tied up in the lake; he’s the person he cares the most about. Harry tells Hermione about how if he was a girl he would invite Draco to the Yule Ball. Draco invites Pansy (because he knows she’ll accept) to make Harry jealous. Harry goes with Parvati to convince himself he doesn’t have feelings for Draco. He promptly realises he’s been lying to himself when he sees Draco holding Pansy tightly. Draco starts going out with her. Lots of drama. The third task happens. It kills Draco to see Harry so devastated after Cedric’s death. If finds him in Maugrey’s office with Dumbledore and Co. Harry is angry at Draco because he saw his dad that night. Their dads. Draco is petrified, struck for the first time of the horrors his father took a part to. Maybe even is mother. Reconciliation. Draco’s character development of the end of the seventh book happens.

By the fifth year, Harry sassy comments to Draco’s father made Draco realise that his home is not at the Malfoy’s manor. Narcissa, loyal confident of her son, offers that he moves definitely with Andromeda after a torrid fight she has with her son about their link with Voldemort. She knows he will be happier there. She also knows Voldemort plans and she wants to distance her precious son from this toxic household. Andromeda’s house is also very close to the Dursleys. Draco teams up with Harry for the Dumbledore Army. They also team up with Fred and George to prank Umbridge, a lot. Harry and Draco kiss for the first time at a meeting everyone forgot except them. Harry tells Hermione. Draco tells Ron. Draco goes to the Christmas party at 12 Grimmauld place. Harry tells clumsily Sirius about his bisexuality. Sirius is moved by Harry’s confidence and tells him about how James and Lily would be proud of their son. How he is proud of the man he became. Harry and Draco cuddle secretly and it helps Harry with his nightmares. Draco freezes at the fight of the ministry. What if his father or his mother are there? He cannot risk hurting them. He holds Harry when Sirius dies. He holds Harry after Voldemort’s fight. His parents learn about it. Narcissa knew. Lucius is infuriated, goes to Andromeda’s to talk his son out of the noxious relation he shares with Harry Potter. Draco stands up for the first time against his father.

In the sixth year, they accept their affection for each other and team up with Ron and Hermione to destroy Voldemort. The whole Halfblood Prince thing isn’t happening nor is Draco plotting against Dumbledore, Snape is charged to kill Dumbledore and he’s the one that lets the Death Eaters into the castle. Draco is constantly haunted by the face of disgust of his father when he looked at him the last time they met. He accepts to help Harry but makes him understand he won’t be able to fight Death Eaters if they meet any. 

It all goes according to canon until they are at the Malfoy’s manor and Bellatrix tortures Draco for having betrayed his family and his blood. The scars he gets replaces the one left by Sectum Sempra in canon. Narcissa is at Andromeda’s when it happens. When she learns about it, she breathes in painfully and promises to herself to help Harry when the time comes. Lucius tells her when she comes back in order to win back her trust. She’s so angry at Bellatrix but she hides it impeccably, she volunteers to do extra work for Voldemort to conceal her rage. It makes her gain even more his trust for when the Moment comes. Everything goes as canon, except that it is Pansy Parkinson that goes hysteric in the Room of Requirements and set fire to it. Draco was the one that went in the Chamber of Secrets because he always hears his boyfriend talk in Parseltongue in his sleep. Draco has a breakdown when he sees Harry in the arms of Hagrid and Narcissa, helpless, by his side. When Harry moves, he automatically runs to him and throws his wand at him. He then runs into the castle to find another wand but ends up helping Sybil Trelawney with an injured student. He understands that even if he despised her classes, she’s a good person and is worth respect.

The epilogue is that after the war they both become professors at Hogwarts; Harry is the D.A.D.A. teacher and Draco is the potions teacher. They adopt Teddy Lupin and it makes them want to adopt more children: James, Scorpius, Neville and Lily. All is well.

I am haunted.
Haunted by the ghost of the woman I was too afraid to become. 
And I’m the one who killed her. 

I smothered her.
Left her gasping and screaming for air underneath the same white sheets that I rest upon every night. 
You’ll see no blood. 
You’ll see no evidence of a struggle. 
Her body rots between the cracks in my ribcage. 
This is where I hold her prisoner. 

There was no funeral. 
No “goodbye”. 
Just my silent mourning. 
I wear black in the bags under my eyes. 
This haunting is exhausting. 
This haunting is unlike any other. 

You see, my hands are her hands 
and maybe this is why everyone I touch 
remains unmoved. 
Maybe this is why everything I write 
becomes an elegy. 

To her: I’m sorry. But you never had a chance. 
To her: I’m sorry for letting you rot before you ever had the chance to bloom. 
Here lies she whose face haunts me everywhere I turn.
—  a personal elegy

every time i meet an adult that says that children are liars, i automatically distrust them. yes, some kids lie. but you need to focus on why your kid feels the need to lie before you start labeling all children as liars. they may need attention for a reason more complex than you write it off as.

do you know what calling children liars does? it guarantees that the day a child comes to you with the truth, asking for help, maybe over a matter as grave as their god damn lives, youll disbelieve them and let that child suffer. what happens to them will be your fault because you didnt fucking save them. and if it rots their mind when they grow up, itll be your face haunting them just as much as their abusers’

The Faces of Bélmez

In August 1971 in Bélmez, Spain a woman and her grandchild noticed something strange on the kitchen floor of their home. Imprinted on the floor appeared a face. The face appeared sad and troubled. When the family tried to rub it out the face only appeared sadder, and the eyes widened. Disturbed, the home owner had the floor removed and a new concrete one replaced it. Three weeks after the first incident, another face appeared on the floor.

As word began to spread of the strange phenomena the local authorities started to take interest. They had the section of the floor where the faces were removed. As they dug under the floor they uncovered human remains. The skeletons dated back to the 13th century, and some were even decapitated. As the discovery was made four more faces appeared in the floor. The skeletons were removed and buried in a local cemetery. The floor was then covered in cloth and wax as a local notary oversaw. Three months later the wax was removed and the faces had changed positions. The faces continued to appear until the residents moved out of the home.

On Jakku, she’d etched marks into her home, etched marks into the wreckages she had raided and claimed, and now, she’d etched a mark into the Monster’s face that haunted her nightmares, her daydreams. Mine, mine, mine. Always a scavenger of broken things.

I love/hate TFA because I ended up with three new ships, one of which apparently is Problematic™ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 

Anyways, here’s my contribution to the amazing Reylo fandom!

Alya wakes up with her heart in her throat and her hands tearing at her hair. She groans and rests her forehead on her knees.

If only he’d shut up.

She checks the time. It’s only three, because of course it’s unreasonable to ask for a full night’s sleep. She stays where she is for a little while longer, curled up in a ball and hugging a pillow, letting her heart rate level out and her head slow its spin. When she stops feeling like she’ll throw up if she moves, she slides out of bed and pads into the bathroom.

Alya avoids the floorboards that creak and is careful to close the door softly, but it doesn’t really matter. After a few months, her family got used to her getting up at strange hours and wandering around the house. Once she stopped screaming, it was easier for them to sleep through her nightmares.

The anger was settling in your bones. It racked your body like a cold. Six weeks of nonstop missions with the team had set you on edge. There was no longer harmony or function with the Avengers. Everyone was fighting with each other. Natasha took your shots, Steve couldn’t stop shouting “language!” through the coms, and Bucky, he was the worst of them all. He physically pulled you from the battlefield. He grabbed you by the arm and pulled you back to the Quinjet. He felt the need to babysit you the rest of the mission. His stoic face haunted your thoughts.

MASTERLIST


Jin 

He would not approach you directly, would think about it, but stay put at the spot. He would probably just admire your from far.

Jin was out grocery shopping with his current partner when his eyes fell on your figure. He stopped in his tracks. Memories of the past flooded in his mind, and his throat dried up. He couldn’t take his eyes off you. He felt guilty for breaking up with you. “What are you looking at?” asked his partner. “Hmm?” he still didn’t look away from you. “Oh uh nothing” he replied. “Lets go”. But while leaving he turned around to take one last look at you, and a smile stretched across his lips and he knew that he still had lingering feelings for you.

Yoongi 

He wouldn’t make it a big deal and would be very realistic. Most likely to ask how life is going for you and how everything has been. 

“Yoongi?” he heard your voice, and his stomach tightened. He turned around found himself face to face with you. “Hi” he breathed out. “How have you been y/n?” he asked. “Good” came your reply. You asked him the same question in return. “Its been good too” he said with longing in voice, which you caught. “It was nice seeing you here. You look good as always” he smiled sweetly. You bid him goodbye and left. Yoongi stood rooted at his spot, looking in the direction of your retreating figure, even long after you had gone. He didn’t pay mind to the 7 missed calls he had received from his current partner throughout the duration of the chance meeting with you. 

Hoseok 

He would be a bit  surprised to bump into due to the unexpectedness of the situation. But he would be very smiley and giddy to see you again, but wouldn’t call you out. 

Taking a walk with his gf(/bf) in the park his mind was preoccupied with you. When he found himself back to reality his eyes found you. A small smile made its way on his lips and he couldn’t control it. Nonetheless he was surprised to see you there. “Y/n” he whispered with a dreamy look in his eyes. He saw your silouhette walk away from him, and had the urge to call you out, to hear your voice again and to see your face that haunted his dreams at night. Realization that you were no longer his dawned on him but he didn’t let it get him down. He still smiled to himself as he watched you walk away, heart beating slightly fast in his chest. 

Namjoon

Namjoon would be a bit shy and nervous when he sees you, stuttering and fumbling for words and trying to think of what to say to you. 

“Isn’t that her?” his partner asked him. He followed the line of sight and found you. You looked up and saw him with another person. You walk up to them. “Namjoon, long time” you smile. “Yea..” he says almost inaudibly. He cleared his throat. ‘Stay calm Joon’ he thought to himself. “S-so how are you doing?” he asked you. “As good as I can” you smile. His eyebrows furrow for a slight second. After your meeting with him, he wonders if you still have feelings for him as he still does for you. He spent the rest of the day thinking about the time he spent with you wishing for it to come back. 

Jimin 

All the past feelings would resurface for him as he sees you. He would feel guilty towards his current partner, but seeing you would open the floodgates of his feelings for you and he wouldn’t be able to let go of it.

Jimin would spend the entire night looking through your old pictures, smiling to himself. Longing sighs escaped his lips. He paused on his favourite picture of you. He zoomed into each feature on your face, remembering the times he has kissed your lips, your nose, your cheeks, your forehead. “Why aren’t we together y/n?” he talked to your picture, with furrowed eyebrows. “I know I shouldn’t be doing this but you were the best thing in my life.”  “I wish we never…”he trailed off, hearing footsteps outside the bedroom door. He turned off his phone and puts it away, pretending to sleep as his gf/bf entered the room. 

Taehyung 

Tae would probably be the most normal out of everyone else. If after seeing you he did realize his feelings for you he would be truthful about it with himself.

He tapped you on the shoulder as he found your petite figure in the music store you both used to visit together. You turned around and were met with Tae’s smiling face. “Tae” you smile in shock. “I just saw you and thought I should come say hi” he returned your smile, in anticipation. He rocked back and forth on his feet. “Still the same I see” you comment. “Still as pretty” he replied. After the meeting as he made his way home, he smiled all the way, humming to himself. He knew he still liked you, but he felt bad for feeling that way since he was with someone else. Regardless, he didn’t lie to himself. “One day Taehyung” he patted his chest gently. 

Jungkook

Jungkook wouldn’t call you out, he would watch you from afar. Partly because he would be too shy and awkward to approach and partly because he would remember his current s/o and feel a bit guilty. 

As he watched your slumped figure in the cafe, your nose buried in a book he couldn’t help but chuckle. “Nothing has changed” he smiled. His stomach fluttered. He wanted to talk to you, but he stopped himself because he wasn’t with you anymore. It wouldn’t be fair to his present partner. So he sat at the coffee shop opposite the street and watched you, sometimes laughing, sometimes smiling. He couldn’t take his eyes off you. He didn’t seem to realize how much time had passed until he received a call. “I am coming right now” he said hurriedly. With one last wistful look towards you he hesitantly made his way down the street, feeling a mixture of happiness at seeing you but also feeling regretful.
