Aries: Kekkai Sensen - 12 Episodes (2nd season of same length coming out Oct 2017)

Supersonic monkeys, vampires, talking fishmen, and all sorts of different supernatural monsters living alongside humans—this has been part of daily life in Hellsalem’s Lot, formerly known as New York City, for some time now. When a gateway between Earth and the Beyond opened three years ago, New Yorkers and creatures from the other dimension alike were trapped in an impenetrable bubble and were forced to live together. Libra is a secret organization composed of eccentrics and superhumans, tasked with keeping order in the city and making sure that chaos doesn’t spread to the rest of the world.

Pursuing photography as a hobby, Leonardo Watch is living a normal life with his parents and sister. But when he obtains the “All-seeing Eyes of the Gods” at the expense of his sister’s eyesight, he goes to Hellsalem’s Lot in order to help her by finding answers about the mysterious powers he received. He soon runs into Libra, and when Leo unexpectedly joins their ranks, he gets more than what he bargained for. Kekkai Sensen follows Leo’s misadventures in the strangest place on Earth with his equally strange comrades—as the ordinary boy unwittingly sees his life take a turn for the extraordinary.

Taurus: Mushishi - 46 Episodes (2 seasons)

“Mushi”: the most basic forms of life in the world. They exist without any goals or purposes aside from simply “being.” They are beyond the shackles of the words “good” and “evil.” Mushi can exist in countless forms and are capable of mimicking things from the natural world such as plants, diseases, and even phenomena like rainbows.

This is, however, just a vague definition of these entities that inhabit the vibrant world of Mushishi, as to even call them a form of life would be an oversimplification. Detailed information on Mushi is scarce because the majority of humans are unaware of their existence.

So what are Mushi and why do they exist? This is the question that a “Mushishi,” Ginko, ponders constantly. Mushishi are those who research Mushi in hopes of understanding their place in the world’s hierarchy of life.

Ginko chases rumors of occurrences that could be tied to Mushi, all for the sake of finding an answer.

It could, after all, lead to the meaning of life itself.

But the deceased don’t always desist and some killers are more than ready to kill again to keep dead men from telling any more tales.

Can this pair of anything but normal paranormal detectives solve the ultimate dead case files or will they end up in cold storage themselves?

Virgo: Terror in Resonance - 11 Episodes

Painted in red, the word “VON” is all that is left behind after a terrorist attack on a nuclear facility in Japan. The government is shattered by their inability to act, and the police are left frantically searching for ways to crack down the perpetrators. The public are clueless—until, six months later, a strange video makes its way onto the internet. In it, two teenage boys who identify themselves only as “Sphinx” directly challenge the police, threatening to cause destruction and mayhem across Tokyo. Unable to stop the mass panic quickly spreading through the city and desperate for any leads in their investigation, the police struggle to act effectively against these terrorists, with Detective Kenjirou Shibazaki caught in the middle of it all.

Zankyou no Terror tells the story of Nine and Twelve, the two boys behind the masked figures of Sphinx. They should not exist, yet they stand strong in a world of deception and secrets while they make the city fall around them, all in the hopes of burying their own tragic truth.

Libra: No Game No Life - 12 Episodes

No Game No Life is a surreal comedy that follows Sora and Shiro, shut-in NEET siblings and the online gamer duo behind the legendary username “Kuuhaku.” They view the real world as just another lousy game; however, a strange e-mail challenging them to a chess match changes everything—the brother and sister are plunged into an otherworldly realm where they meet Tet, the God of Games.

The mysterious god welcomes Sora and Shiro to Disboard, a world where all forms of conflict—from petty squabbles to the fate of whole countries—are settled not through war, but by way of high-stake games. This system works thanks to a fundamental rule wherein each party must wager something they deem to be of equal value to the other party’s wager. In this strange land where the very idea of humanity is reduced to child’s play, the indifferent genius gamer duo of Sora and Shiro have finally found a real reason to keep playing games: to unite the sixteen races of Disboard, defeat Tet, and become the gods of this new, gaming-is-everything world.

Capricorn: Hamatora - 24 Total Episodes (2 Seasons)

The ability to create miracles is not just a supernatural phenomenon; it is a gift which manifests in a limited number of human beings. “Minimum,” or small miracles, are special powers that only selected people called “Minimum Holders” possess. The detective agency Yokohama Troubleshooting, or Hamatora for short, is composed of the “Minimum Holder PI Duo,” Nice and Murasaki. Their office is a lone table at Cafe Nowhere, where the pair and their coworkers await new clients.

Suddenly, the jobs that they begin to receive seem to have strange connections to the serial killer whom their friend Art, a police officer, is searching for. The murder victims share a single similarity: they are all Minimum Holders. Nice and Murasaki, as holders themselves, are drawn to the case—but what exactly is the link between Nice and the one who orchestrates it all?

Aquarius: Trigun - 26 Episodes

Vash the Stampede is the man with a $$60,000,000,000 bounty on his head. The reason: he’s a merciless villain who lays waste to all those that oppose him and flattens entire cities for fun, garnering him the title “The Humanoid Typhoon.” He leaves a trail of death and destruction wherever he goes, and anyone can count themselves dead if they so much as make eye contact—or so the rumors say. In actuality, Vash is a huge softie who claims to have never taken a life and avoids violence at all costs.

With his crazy doughnut obsession and buffoonish attitude in tow, Vash traverses the wasteland of the planet Gunsmoke, all the while followed by two insurance agents, Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who attempt to minimize his impact on the public. But soon, their misadventures evolve into life-or-death situations as a group of legendary assassins are summoned to bring about suffering to the trio. Vash’s agonizing past will be unraveled and his morality and principles pushed to the breaking point.

Prompt: “That’s not a good enough reason to get married.”

Characters: Jensen x Reader

Requested: @arryn-nyx


“I can’t believe you’re bailing on me!”

“I promise I’ll make it up to you, Y/N!” Of course Jensen subjects you to his dazzling signature smile, the one that reminds you of kittens and rainbows and all of that corny shit.

He drags you in for an insanely tight hug as if that will make your moodiness disappear. Well, the joke’s on you because it’s starting to work. Damn his perfect physique. How are you supposed to stay pissed when an attractive man who smells delicious is touching you? 

You gather up enough super strength to shake those distracting thoughts away. There’s no way in hell that you’re letting him off the hook this time. Nice try, buddy.

But Jensen’s only wearing a thin, white t-shirt, allowing you to feel every one of his god damn muscles. Fuck. The man knows what he’s doing, his hotness has gotten him out of more than you’d like to admit. To be fair, it definitely works both ways. All you have to do is bite your bottom lip and he’s fucking putty in your hands. Silly boy.

“My approval ratings are down,” you huff, scrolling through the media summary your secretary had prepared for you as you walk into the kitchen. You know Yoongi will be here in the mornings, hovering over the pot of coffee he prefers to brew himself.

“Well good morning to you too,” Yoongi sniffs, frowning at the way you’re immersed in the news without even the smallest glance in his direction. He hands you a cup of coffee made just the way you like it (splash of milk, no sugar).

You take the cup with an absentminded “thanks” said in a soft tone, too distracted by the polling data showing a dip in approval after the news of your impending ascension to the throne was released. It hurt a little that a percentage of the people liked you well enough as a princess, but wouldn’t support the idea of you as an active, ruling queen.

“Put the tablet down. No reading the news until after you give me a morning kiss.” You nearly jump out of your skin when Yoongi sidles up behind you to kiss your neck softly. “Tablet. Down. Now.” And who are you to deny your husband when he orders so nicely?

I know you did a royal one but how about a different spin where one isn’t suposed to get the crown maybe second or third and then they get it or will get it? And they have to grow up quick to take over?

Pulled back from the front, the shore was a paradise, compared to inland where the stalemate waged, waiting for the big push. The sun took its time dripping through the July sky. Frozen in the thick, heavy evening, it glowed and made the world red and blue and purple and golden, while the water licked at the burnt shore and tried to soothe a bit of the earth for the soldiers.

John and Mary’s A+ parenting

If season 12 has shown us anything, it’s how very similar John and Mary actually are. Here are some of the most obvious instances:

1. Not taking it for valid/not being happy about their son’s rightful anger and/or hurt and trying to forbid it:

“You’re right. Although I’m not too crazy about this new tone of yours, you’re right.” - John to Dean (1x21), after Dean calls him out on the fact that they were never able to reach him when they needed him. Because it’s completely unreasonable for Dean to feel angry and deeply hurt that John didn’t bother picking up the phone when Dean was dying.

“Do not give me the face.” - Mary to Dean (12x13), when he rightfully looks at her in utter disappointment and betrayal after her confession. Dean didn’t even say anything yet, but apparently he’s not even allowed to look at her in a certain way to express his feelings.

2. Looking pleased and proud when their son is catering to their every need, while he puts himself and his own choices/wishes last:

John’s speech to Dean in the hospital (2x01) and his elated smile while he talks about how proud he is of Dean for taking care of Sammy and their whole family his entire life, sacrificing his own childhood in the process. And then basically telling him to continue to do so.

Mary looking so delighted and pleased (12x14) when Dean tells her that she can make her own choices and his feelings on them don’t matter.

3. Forcing one of their children into the position of having to choose between their parent or brother, and thus causing a rift in their relationship:

John’s parentification of Dean and making him responsible for Sam’s well-being, while at the same time brainwashing him into following his orders which more often than not had nothing to do with Sam’s best interests. Thus putting Dean into the impossible position of making both of them happy with his actions (basically all their childhood and season 1).

Mary trying to convince Dean to talk to her and agree with her on working with the BMoL and when it doesn’t work, contacting Sam even though she knows that Dean is completely against it. Thus playing/manipulating them against each other and forcing Sam into the situation to pick between his mom and his brother (12x14).

4. Lamenting about what they want for their children, instead of asking them what they actually want/need.

“I want to stop losing people we love. I want you to go to school, I want Dean to have a home. I want….I want Mary alive. It’s just….I just want this to be over.” - John to Sam (1x21). It would have been in John’s power to give them at least some of these things. He could have encouraged Sam to go to college and he could have given Dean a stable home while growing up. Nobody forced him to drag his children around the country and letting them live in shitty motel rooms, when they needed exactly the opposite. But his thirst for revenge and his guilt were stronger than his need to provide some safety and support for his children.

“We’ve got a real shot here. A world without monsters. A world where you and Dean don’t have to hunt, where you can have normal lives. (…) You were going to school, to college. (…) That’s why I’m doing this. That is what I’m fighting for.” - Mary to Sam (12x14). A lovely thought, sure. But does she ever ask if that’s even what they want anymore? Sam tells her that he chose this life. He’s been content with his life and hunting during the last two seasons and at peace with himself like we’ve never seen before. Dean even told her in the very first episode after she came back that this is their life and that they’re doing something good and that it’s worth it. They’ve grown up and their lives may not be what Mary envisioned, but her desire to change the status quo comes from her own needs and guilt and nowhere else.

5. Abandoning their sons when they need them and only showing up when they feel like it/need something.

John leaving them alone for days/weeks in shitty motel rooms when they were only children. John not being accessible for them, when they desperately tried to contact him (1x09, 1x12). John deciding they’re better off on their own (1x16). John leaving Dean to rot in jail and when Dean ended up at Sonny’s place instead, taking him away when he needed him with no regard to what was going on in Dean’s life at this point (9x07). To name a few instances.

Mary leaving (12x03), when Dean and Sam were so excited and happy about getting a chance to know her and be a family. Leaving, despite Sam having told her just before that having her here fills in the biggest blank in his life (12x02). Leaving, despite the way Dean physically recoils from her when she tries to touch him because she’s hurting him so deeply by doing it (12x03). And then staying away from them, barely making any effort to get to know them, and only reaching out to them when she needs something from them (12x12, 12x13, 12x14).

6. Not being a mom/dad first.

“I stopped being your father and I became your drill sergeant.” - John to Sam (1x20). John was always “Sir” first. He was their drill sergeant, as he himself puts it. He expected blind obedience, instead of offering guidance and support. He didn’t even bother celebrating birthdays or holidays with his children.

“I am your mother, but I’m not just a mom. And you are not a child.” - Mary to Dean (12x13), after he asks her to try and be their mom for once. He never asked her to be “just a mom”. But he asked her, quite rightfully, to put them first for once. To think about how it’s been for them. And to have her throw those ugly words “You are not a child” in his face in response, when that’s exactly what his life has been like ever since he was four years old, was the worst thing to witness. Also - because I mentioned it for John, too - Christmas and Dean’s birthday have come and gone since Mary is back and considering the way Dean is being so openly disappointed about the lack of time she’s spent with them, I doubt she was there for either of those days.

I’m sure there are even more examples, but my heart hurts too much right now thinking about this. Maybe I’ll add things later (Mary is still around to provide more evidence after all).

I would have loved to make a gifset of all these instances, but sadly I haven’t got enough skill. If anyone wants to make one based on this post I’d be eternally grateful!

Just friends ~ Part three

You didn’t sleep at all that night, the thoughts of Seung hyun chasing you down the beach and the way the moonlight hit his face just right kept you awake.


It’s not like you hadn’t noticed how handsome he was, like the sun in the sky it was plain to see, you had just never allowed yourself to think of him in a romantic way before because you knew you weren’t his type. Seung hyun had an acquired taste in life and his choice in women was one of them, everything he wanted in his companion was everything you weren’t, the complete opposite in fact.


But there was something about last night, the way he held you in the water and carried you back to the beach, the way he placed his jacket on you when you were cold and carried your shoes for you, the way he looked at you when you stood at your door. There was something in his eyes and in the way he was behaving, his body stiff, reminiscent of the first time you had met him.

snehathings  asked:

So I read Jon might be playing Dany-I find it horrible if he does such a thing because she has already agreed and second it's not right plus if he plays her n she ends yup dead just like the first time around how horribly would it impact him n and then I also read that if he would marry Sansa it would be for political reasons and it would look even bad if he does that plus they both deserve to marry for love cause Tyrion was good to her n she was ready to do her duty, I know this is no fairytale

Okay, so it seems like there are two parts to this ask. 1. Jon potentially manipulating Dany, and 2. Jon and Sansa potentially getting married. Let’s look at them one at a time.

My response is beneath the cut for both length and potential 7x06 spoilers.

Her words halted as abruptly as she had.

Big Boy

A/N: We apologise for the delay. Regularly scheduled @spamanoweek programming will resume immediately. 

(Or, in other words, here’s the slightly late fic for day 5: Gifts!)



The days leading up to Antonio’s birthday did not go as smoothly as Lovino hoped. In hindsight, it was foolish of him to expect anything restful. He’d never owned a dog before, only several cats (a creature Antonio remained consistently and stubbornly allergic to), so really, Lovino had no idea what he was doing.


The creature sitting beside him on the car shed a lot of fur. With every minute, more white threads littered the carseat, as though the dog was a giant, shaggy salt-shaker. He’d rescued the big boy from the pound. No-one wanted to take him, and those who did, often returned him for his ‘attitude’, which Lovino found morally reprehensible. A pet was like a child. You couldn’t just give it up because you didn’t like its behaviour. 

The dog was panting hard and fast, like a train engine–ha-ha-ha-ha–Lovino figured it was a stress reaction. His cats would always get anxious in the car too. Something about the ground moving underneath them threw them off. Whenever he could, he petted the dog’s large chest.

“You’re Antonio’s dog,” Lovino told him in his most soothing pet-voice. “Antonio’s a bit like a puppy himself, I’m sure you two will get along. He’s not home this week. Work trip. But he gets back on Saturday, which is also his birthday, and he’s always wanted a dog, so I figured, why not surprise him?”

When the car stopped in traffic, children from other vehicles would peer out of their windows and squeal. Lovino found himself smiling awkwardly at a little girl and her father as they waved at his new dog. 

“Already a celebrity? Good for you, big boy. Say,” Lovino glanced at the panting dog, who shifted nervously in the front seat, “what should we name you?” 

The dog turned his huge, furry head away from Lovino.

“We’re stuck with each other for a week, so I do have to name you. The pound people said you didn’t have a name.” Lovino drummed his fingers against the steering wheel. “Until I think of something, I’ll just call you Big Boy. Is that okay? Of course it’s okay, because you’re a big boy.”


I told you, you should have bought a puppy. Easier to train.” Gilbert’s tone was so exasperated, Lovino practically see him rolling his eyes, even through the damn phone. 

“Don’t lecture me, give me advice!” Lovino snarled, putting a hand on his hip as he watched the huge white dog dig his paws happily into his and Antonio’s shared bed, his claws ripping out the bedding. Lovino put his hand over the mouthpiece and yelled, “STOP IT, BIG BOY! STOP! BAD DOG!”

It seemed to have no effect on Big Boy. 

You’ve named him Big Boy?” Gilbert scoffed, “Jeeeeesus.” 

“Shut up, Gilbert. I’ve never owned a dog before, I don’t know what to do with him. Are you going to help me or not?”

“Okay, well, if I were you I’d leash him and drag him off the bed.” 

“Leash, leash…” Lovino wandered through the hallways, trying to remember where he’d put Big Boy’s new leash. He’d walked him this morning…

Ooh, what’s Antonio going to think when he comes back after a week and sees the bed in tatters?” Gilbert’s tone was thick with implication. “Are you cheating on me, Lovino?” he cried, doing a dramatic rendition of Antonio’s Spanish accent. 

“Shut up, Gilbert. The second he sees Big Boy, he’ll understand.” Lovino grabbed the bright blue leash off the coat rack by the door. (He’d have to find a better place to put that.) The leash was thin, with white dog bone prints. He’d even got a matching collar, that Big Boy sported around his neck. He still needed a doggy tag. Lovino had stocked up on all the things Gilbert had advised him on. Food, shampoo, treats, vet’s phone number, and surprisingly expensive toys. 

When Lovino entered the bedroom, the dog had gone from ripping up the bed to chewing the headrest. His teeth had chipped into the wood, leaving nasty bite marks and splinters. “GET OFF THE BED, URSA MINOR!” was, for some reason, the first thing Lovino could yell when he clipped on the leash and tried to drag the dog off.

Ursa Minor?” Gilbert asked through the phone. 

“Little bear.” The phone fell out of Lovino’s grasp with the hysterical, cackling noise of Gilbert laughing. The dog, meanwhile, didn’t budge an inch.

Full Transcript of Jeff Flakes Senate Floor Speech, 10/24/2017:

Mr. President, I rise today to address a matter that has been much on my mind, at a moment when it seems that our democracy is more defined by our discord and our dysfunction than it is by our values and our principles. Let me begin by noting a somewhat obvious point that these offices that we hold are not ours to hold indefinitely. We are not here simply to mark time. Sustained incumbency is certainly not the point of seeking office. And there are times when we must risk our careers in favor of our principles.

Now is such a time. 

It must also be said that I rise today with no small measure of regret. Regret, because of the state of our disunion, regret because of the disrepair and destructiveness of our politics, regret because of the indecency of our discourse, regret because of the coarseness of our leadership, regret for the compromise of our moral authority, and by our—all of our—complicity in this alarming and dangerous state of affairs. It is time for our complicity and our accommodation of the unacceptable to end.

Gerrus idea: 1920s (which is also my favourite time for them). They meet in Berlin and dance and drink, and just generally try to forget about life

okay so I really tried to keep it as a drabble, but it just turned into 4000 words again.
Also less dancing and carefreeness happens, sorry for that! vov

But anyway, here it is, 1920s GerRus, set around 1925 specifically.

Fanfiction Writer Appreciation Day

Man Since I entered this fandom and got back to reading fanfics, I’m so amazed by all the writing styles and the huge variety of content that I could read at my fingertips. So here’s my favourites starting with the ones that got me hooked XP and then followed by the rest~! Some of these are smutty so…pay attention to the tags when you click on the AO3 link = w=;

Old favourites and what got me hooked into AO3 and eventually tumblr:

Road Trip Series - Shattered by Sekiei @nomadsky Gladnis

Push Me Pull You by Azkas19 HighSpecs


Another Butterfly Effect by ScribeofRhapsody

Having woken up with the flu the morning they were supposed to leave Insomnia, Ignis is forced to remain behind while the others journey to Altissia. Perhaps it was fate, because he was exactly where he needed to be to help Lady Lunafreya escape the city.

Atlas by notempty @chocobodrift

Ignis carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. He does it unnoticed, in shadows and silence, in support of his prince and in a role he never asked for. Occasionally, it becomes a touch too heavy. (Ignoct)

Body Heat by faierius @faierius

Gladiolus Amicitia was a human space heater. Ignis Scientia was irritated he had not noticed before now. (Gladnis)

But I Realized That I Need You by j_marquis

Iris is the new kid, Ignis is her second grade teacher, and Gladio runs a bookstore. It’s like one of those cute romance stories, the kind that feel like a warm hug listening to the rain. The kind Gladio totally reads when he thinks no one is paying attention. (Gladnis)

Deal with the Devil by jeejaschocolate @jeejascoffee

During one of their encounters, Ignis finds a single weakness in Ardyn: The man seems particularly sensitive to touch. In the World of Ruin, Ignis decides to capitalize on this. He can make a deal with the enemy to benefit the remaining humans. 

Really, what is the cost to Ignis himself? All he has to do is deign to touch Ardyn every now and then. Nothing serious, just a pat on the shoulder. A brief massage.

Nothing more than that…(Ardynis)

Defy the Stars by Strange and Intoxicating -rsa- (strangeandintoxicating) @rsasai

Ignis is given an Omen of the Stars.

Now, armed with the knowledge of living through a world of unending night, there are choices to be made.

Given the chance to change fate, Ignis will go to war with even the Gods to keep Noctis safe.(Ignoct)

For Hearth and Home by Viviena @vivicogitator

Nyx is waiting for death, but it doesn’t come neither for him, nor for his commander. (Drautos x Nyx)

Gasoline by SturgeonSurgeon

AU Where the Lucis line is comprised of vampires, and Ignis is too willing to aid Noctis with his cravings. (Ignoct)

Ignis And The Beast by Moon_Raccoon_Exe @moonraccoon-exe

Beauty and the Beast Gladnis AU:

Ignis Scientia, son of a sick inventor and nephew to the town’s mayor, ends up prisoner in a dark castle guarded by an imposing beast under the name of Gladiolus, and talking furniture.

With no chances to escape, Ignis has to deal with a moody beast through the months, unaware that his sole presence may be the only key to breaking an ancient curse set upon the castle by an evil Wizard who may or not still wander around to prevent it from happening.

Could Ignis, a simple town boy with passion for cooking, soften the beast’s heart and break the spell? (Gladnis)

Like the Wolf by notthelasttime @notthelasttime

Lucis has a wolf problem that no one wants to talk about. The transformation back in to a human body is a taxing one, but Prompto is always willing to help. (Promnis)

Older Gladnis Series - Return by Raufnir @expectogladiolus

On the day that marks the anniversary of Noct’s return from the Crystal, Gladio and Ignis planned to go with Prompto to Hammerhead to spend some time there on a day that means so much to all of them. Gladio and Ignis’ daughter, Clara, kicks up some fuss and demands that she and Nox be brought along too. Each of the four adults has their memories of Noctis, and for each of them today is a painful day. Ignis lost his charge, his best friend, almost his little brother. Gladio’s whole life’s purpose was to protect him, and in the end he couldn’t. And Prompto lost his soulmate. They had a week with him before he sacrificed everything to bring back the dawn.

Ignis, who has been hearing Noct’s voice in his mind for a month or so by this point, hears it again in the quiet of Hammerhead. Is he going mad, or is their king waiting for them there? (Gladnis)

Out Here with the Daemons by Lagerstatte @fatranchu

They break into the hotel room when Gladio is out. There’s five of them, armed with guns, and wanting Noct dead.

Ignis has a strange expression; it’s one Prompto doesn’t recognise.

Quiet Evening at the Garage by Florangey @fabulacrystal

In which two people enjoy a nice meal together and become closer. (Ignis/Cindy)

Ruin and Balance by 1000Needles @billionhighways

After a few years he couldn’t remember anymore why they stopped talking in the first place.

Spoilers through the end of the game. Could be considered AU, depending on your interpretation of the ending. (Gladnis)

Second Born by catbuttermargarine @catbuttermargerine

Based on a prompt from Pookaseraph, who asked for: “Cor asking Clarus for his permission to marry his daughter! IDK I want fluff, send fluff”

Well, here’s some fluff.
An offhand comment from Clarus sees Cor considering his friends’ approval when it comes to his romantic partners. But how precisely do you get approval from a dead man? (Coris)

Semper Fi by MidnightSwami

Gladio’s hand began to throb when he realized he was gripping the jagged rock of the haven with the strength typically reserved for his great sword. The dull ache served as a reminder that he couldn’t get too carried away and while every ounce of his willpower was being tested, he knew Noctis was right. Fuck, why was he so helpless when it came to him? Why was he willing to risk goddamn everything to watch pleasure spread throughout the soft features of the face meant to be stoic and lead an entire kingdom? (GladNoct)

Ten Years of Dark and Light by Pookaseraph

Small kinkmeme fill asking for Cor and Iris growing closer during the Long Dark. (Coris)

The Wolf and the Raven by synthysammy07

Gladiolus Amicitia scavenges the Leidan lands alone taking lone hunts and living off the land.

Ignis Scientia lives alone in an abandoned barn in Leide where he grows potatoes, reads books, and rarely leaves his home.

Ravens like wolves for some reason. They like to eat with them and not alone. (Gladnis)

The Far and Distant Light by DiamonDustOhSnap

Ignis is struggling to adapt after Noctis disappeared into the crystal, and Gladio and Prompto aren’t supporting him the way he’d like either. He finds a new ally in the unlikely Aranea Highwind… Ignis/Aranea. This is my personal headcanon. Rating it M for some of the future content. [Spoilers!] (HighSpecs)

The Science of You & Me by waywardmelody @ofthekingsglaive

Science is verifiable. It is understandable. Even when the answer you seek is disproved utterly, there are assurances in place, lines etched into the sand. There is procedure. There is order. None of these exist within the constructs of love. (Gladnis)

Too Much is Never Enough by writerlady118

Aranea Highwind works where the money is good – and right now that’s for Niflheim under the strange, yet powerful Ardyn Izunia. She doesn’t always understand his orders, but who is she to look a gift horse in the mouth? After an unexpected act of kindness, Aranea fears she might be falling in love with the enemy. And if she is, then she’s going to have a really hard time following her master’s next orders.

Crappy summary aside: this is mostly wish-fulfillment nonsense. I’m mostly re-writing scenes from the game, but adding Aranea because I liked her a lot. (HighSpecs)

Until the End of Days by TwoCatsTailoring @twocatstailoring

It was fate, they said. Prophecy, foretold, all decided without any input from anyone anywhere. Few choices but the path before them. But in the midst of fate there is always choice. Always lives that happen in and around and between and after. This is a story about those lives.

There is a guide to the various arcs and ships in the end notes. I hope that helps (cause not everyone turns up for the same things.) (CorxMonica)

Wicked Games by UnsteadyGenius @unsteadygenius

As Insomnia’s Royal Strategist, Ignis is pragmatic, reasonable, and always one step ahead of the enemy. But when it comes to Aranea Highwind, Commodore of the Niflheim Empire, he’s weak and vulnerable–two traits he can’t afford to have, especially when both countries are on the brink of war. (HighSpecs)

You’re Hiding (Underneath the Smoke) by Daiako(Achrya)

Ignis is 19, poor, and living in a shoebox when he gets a job offer at Lucis Technology. He’s 19, slightly less poor, and still living in a shoebox when his boss, Mr. Caelum, starts giving him expensive gifts.(Ignoct)

Electra

“When are you coming home?”

“…..” Sigh. “Lance-”

A bitter laugh. “Right. I don’t even know why I even bothered to ask that. Bye, Shiro.”

“Wait , Lance. I love yo-”

-

Click. Lance through the phone down near the edge of the bed and hunched in on himself. He thinks he might be being a bit unfair to Shiro but fuck him. He knows how lance is. How he needs Shiro to make him feel validated and safe. Lance needs him so much but Shiro is halfway across the world in a different country. Drinking foreign wine,kissing foreign bitches who aren’t him.

Ah, jealousy is so ugly. Lance hates it.

He hates everything.

Clenching his fist he flops down on the bed in a squinched up ball and closes his eyes tight. He tries to fight it , but before he knows it he’s grabbing Shiro’s sweater that still has his scent on it and brings it up to smother his face. It makes it easier to cry without his face bared open to the world.

A salty tear bleeds dry on his lips as he stutters out a soft, whiny, “daddy…”

-

Despite what most think, Lance does prefer bars to clubs. Here at bars he can think and plan. Here, he can sink his claws into an older gentleman looking for a pretty face and share his lonesome with. Here, is were he can scratch that unbearable itch. Sipping his Long Island, he leans his head against his palm and surveys the room through hooded eyes.

“Too old. Too young.”

“Too ugly.”

“Too skittish.”

“Looks like a dick.”

Etc. Etc. No one is right. No one is fucking right and it makes the itch flare dramatically. He NEEDS this. God, its been so fucking long. Just one night and he can forget it all. A body takes the empty stool next to him and he flicks his eyes towards them. Big- but not too large. Prominent muscles that come with hard work and decent exercise. Scruffy beard flecked with gray, salt and pepper hair to match, and sweet whisky eyes. So rich and deep with age.

His toes curl.

Lance orders a whiskey this time, and slightly jerks with excitement as the oldest gentleman next to him orders the same thing and offers to pay for both.

He plays coy. Looking through his lashes, he fidgets and bites his bottom lip: “You didn’t need to do that.”

“No, I didn’t.” He says picking up his glass when its placed down in front of him. “But I wanted to.” He swallows it all down in one go, eyes finely trained on his face as Lance watches the man Adams apple bob up and down.

Lance follows suit before putting his glass down to stick his hand out. “I’m Lance, and you?”

“Kenneth. Kenneth Stone” he murmurs taking Lances hand in his own strong callused one. The itch is insatiable when Kenneth leans down to press a sweet kiss to his knuckles, and Lance can no longer hold back his urges. He’s waited too long for this.

“Care to show me what else that mouth can do?”

-

Fingers biting into his hips.

Tears streaking down his cheeks.

Body’s flush flush, flush-

“So tight.” A lusty groan.

“Daddy” bleeding from sobbing lips in a random motel.

-

Shiro places his face in his hands and sighs deep and tired when Lance doesn’t pick up the phone. He’s been calling all week and Lance hasn’t picked up a single call. Shiro knows he’s mad; and that’s okay. He abandoned him. He took on a serious responsibility when becoming the anchor Lance needed, to only leave him when he needed him the most.

Shiro feels like shit, but honestly when doesn’t he?

He runs a hand through his hair frustratedly and tries to call again.

He’s probably wrapped up in the embrace of another man. Sighing for someone else in that way he does when he’s pleased and content. Calling someone who isn’t Shiro the special little word he only uses for him.

“Daddy…”

The phone goes to voicemail again.

“I’ll be home tomorrow, baby boy.” He days. “Just wait for me.” A soft defeated sigh into the receiver before the phone hangs up.

KogKag Week - Prompt #7

AU

A/N: So this is basically inspired by Captain America, because I like to hurt myself and found this beautiful video which destroyed me on the inside.(I’ll post the video on a separate post.) I thought it would be fun to write a KogKag version, but give it a happy ending. I also want to say that I had the BEST time doing KogKag Appreciation week. I really want to thank @maddieson-san​ and @kagomehigurashi​ for making me feel so welcome and loved. You guys rock!!!



Smoke filled the club while a slow jazz number was being played by the band. Kagome entered the club in a striking red dress and matching lips. Soldiers openly stared as she made her way past them, her eyes looking for one specific man.

His blue eyes met hers, and the roamed over her body appreciatively. Kagome met his gaze confidently, and watched as he left his two buddies to meet her.

“Fancy seeing you here,” Kouga greeted her, handing her a drink.

“I believe we talked of dancing before you shipped out on your mission,” Kagome smiled. Her fingers lingered, grazing his hand as she slowly took the drink for him.

“I’m not much of a dancer.”

“You just need the right partner.”

Kouga chuckled as she flirted with him. He was glad she was trying to keep things light. They both knew he might not make it back alive.

“That’s my woman. Always keeping a brave face.” He tilted her face to his, trying his best to remember every inch of her face. The curve of her smile. The gray-blue of her eyes. How she always blushed when he told the troops that was his woman leading those troops. Only his woman would be the lead code broker.

Kagome leaned into his touch, breathing his scent in. She knew at that moment she would always remember the rough feel of his hand as he touched her.

“I came to say goodbye,” she whispered.

Kouga’s heart broke as the words she said sank in.

“I got to do this,” he argued.
