Raphael Santiago x Reader

Request :  Hey 😊 Could you do a reader x Raphael where the reader lets another vampire drink some of her blood to help him heal after being seriously hurt and Raphael gets super jealous? Thank you!!

Warnings : blood , Jealous!Raphael 

     “ Come on it’s okay I know you won’t hurt me .” you said to the vampire laying on the sofa as he was really pale and he lost a lot of blood as he was hurt by a seelie blade . You put your wrist on his lips and he showed his fangs before burying them in your soft flesh , he was to hurt to survive if he didn’t got some blood soon and since nobody was here you knew that you was his only hope so you let him drink from your blood , his fangs releasing a little bit of venom in your body making you forget about the pain and to concentrate at his eyes . He pulled apart after a few gulps as his body already got stronger and he didn’t needed blood anymore . 

     “ Thank you .” he kissed your forehead before going out to mind his own business .


     How dare she let another vampire drink her blood , she doesn’t know that if she’s mine no one else is allowed to drink from her , it’s our rules , our law , the only important rule that the vampires have and she still steps on it . Raphael thought as he saw you letting the vampire to drink from your blood ,he was jealous and angry , you wasn’t supposed to let some one else to touch you , to drink from you , to see your true face , you was his , only his and he was going to make sure that you stood that way . He let you recover from the bite before he came to see you .


     “ So did something that I should know about happen today ?” Raphael asked as he just entered in the room that he shared with you and saw you looking at yourself in the mirror .

    “ No nothing at all .” you divulged and walked to him , you wanted to kiss him but he pulled apart , looking very angry and holding something in his eyes that you couldn’t put the point on .

     “ What happened ?” you asked hurt by his rejection , it wasn’t usual for Raphael to refuse your kiss , either to pull apart from you and he really seemed off today thing that got you worried . You wanted to know what’s going on with the man \ vampire in which you put all your trust .

     “ I saw you .” he mumbled under his breath and you heard him but you didn’t knew what he was talking about . It was confusing to see him acting like this around you .

     “ What ?” your confused voice broke the silence , Raphael looked at you an angry look on his face .

     “ I saw you when you let that vampire to drink from you .” Raphael confessed ad you looked at him even more confused , what the hell was wrong with that .

     “ And what’s wrong with that Raphael ? I haven’t done nothing wrong .” you yelled looking at him as you couldn’t control your anger . Raphael twisted his head head as he was really angry and didn’t wanted to take out his rage on you . 

     “ What’s wrong ? You broke our law , you’re mine , you aren’t supposed to let someone else drink from you ,” he informed pulling you closer to him “ I’m the only one who’s allowed to taste your blood and to get in your head , no one else (Y/N) but you just let that vamp to drink from you when you knew very well that you’re only mine . I don’t want someone else so close to you , I don’t want someone to touch you in that way , I don’t want someone else to sink his fangs on your body , I don’t want someone else to drink from you . You are mine . Mine and no one elses .” Raphael affirmed in a strange tone which made you feel amused . A giggle left your lips and Raphael looked at you a strange grin on his face .

     “ This is serious (Y/N) ! Or do you think that our relationship is a joke ?” Raphael asked but it sounded more like a demand . You giggled even harder .

     “ Sorry but it’s to funny to see you jealous ! I wouldn’t have done that if it wasn’t a critic situation . He was hurt by a seelie blade ad you know how hard that wounds heal . He lost a lot of blood till he arrived him and I couldn’t just stay and watch him die again .” you confessed approaching Raphael “ I’m only your Raphael , always and forever .” You put a hand on Raphaels cheek and brought him closer to you . “ I’ll always be just yours .” You whispered against his lips before you kissed his lips . Raphael wrapped his arms around your middle pressing your bodies together . You titled your head to the side and let Raphael to sink his fangs in the skin of your neck . He smelled your skin before sinking the canines into you and drinking slowly as you gave into the feeling adoring the protective way in which he held you against his body .

The Shooting Star

A/N: Oh boy, here we go. This is my first entry one-shot for @doodledrawsthings human bill AU (which they helped edit and illustrate). For those not familiar, it’s an AU based on the Flat Dreams lore by @pengychan, basically a “what-if” scenario of Bill coming back during the Pines Twins second summer in Gravity Falls. If you’re unfamiliar with it, CHECK OUT THEIR PAGE. WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE. Hope you enjoy this one.

part 2

part 3

“And this is the time DipDop and I were voted Best Dynamic Duo! Man, I can’t imagine not having my bro to count on!”

“Can we do something else.”

“Nope!”

The occupant of the kitchen chair groaned loudly, burying his face in his arms. “Tell me, Shooting Star, is TORTURING ME with POINTLESS HUMAN SENTIMENTS glued onto pieces of colorful paper some kinda elaborate revenge scheme you’re executing?”

“First, they’re not pointless. I’ll have you know I worked very hard on each of them! And second-” Mabel jumped up from her chair and smacked Bill lightly across the face. The demon recoiled with an half-annoyed half-startled snarl. “You’re being a jerk! So you get a frowny-face sticker.”

Bill slowly pried said sticker off his cheek, slowly ripped it in half with a disturbing satisfaction, and tossed the remaining pieces on the floor, his eyes never leaving Mabel’s. The demon silently got up, fixing the girl with a sneer before turning to leave. Well, that could have gone better.

Wedding Bells l Shawn Mendes Imagine

a/n: this idea really came out of the blue, so i hope you like it <3.

based on the song “Wedding Bells” by the Jonas Brothers.

He wanted to die when she first told him she was getting married.

They had broken up a long time ago, three years to be exact, and they had been together for the exact amount of time until everything felt so repetitive; he didn’t feel the need to take three flights just to see her, and she didn’t see the point on staying up for hours just to hear his voice and see his face through the laptop screen.

They both convinced themselves that it was for the best. He reassured himself that she deserved better, while she convinced herself that she wasn’t enough for someone like Shawn.

She got her college degree, and he buried himself in work. He didn’t hear from her in almost two years, when she reached out to him to tell him that she wanted to talk to him. 

A small part of him wanted to hear that she couldn’t live without him, that she just couldn’t get over him because he was the love of her life, and Shawn prepared himself to tell her that he felt the same way, that he was done trying to get over her because it was impossible.

Damn, was he wrong…

Without You (Harry Styles Imagine) Part 1

Song: Highway Don’t Care (Tim McGraw ft. Taylor Swift)

“You just can’t do anything right, can you?!” he yelled.

A simple misunderstanding was all that started this commotion.

Harry had asked Y/N to pick up his sister from the airport for him, but she was too busy planning a birthday party for him to remember anything else. This led to right at the moment, when he was screaming his head off. It wasn’t a super big deal, but Gemma had waited at the airport for an hour before finally getting a taxi to her friend’s house. She had come for her friend’s graduation party, and later on she would help Y/N plan Harry’s birthday celebration. Y/N had apologized immensely to Gemma when she realized that she had forgotten the one job that her fiancé had asked her to do. Gemma understood, she knew that with all the pressure she was under, sometimes you even forget some important things. Harry, however, was another story. He was crazy mad at Y/N when he found out. But however it might look, his sour mood was already sponsored by the management, and the fact that Y/N kept disappearing for hours in a day. Little did he know, she was only trying her best to make sure that he had the best birthday of his life. Still, she knew that she had made a mistake. She should have told Harry, or at least she could have made up a reasonable excuse. Moreover, she knew how protective Harry is of his older sibling. She should have set a reminder for her to remember.

“I-I’m sorry Harry, I promise it just skipped my mind.“she said.

She didn’t want to make a huge deal about it, especially since it was his birthday in two days and she didn’t want the either of them to be unhappy just before his special day.

"Just - just leave.” he said, not even looking at her.

She was shocked to hear her always so loving and caring boyfriend say something like that to her, but she knew he was just angry, so she picked up her car keys and phone and walked out the door to give him some time to cool down, to think things over.

Tears blurred her eyes at the thought of losing him forever. She dreaded the moment when he would finally have had enough with her.

Continuing her way out of the house that she and Harry shared, she decided to go for a drive to pass time. As she sat in the car, she began to think what would happen if she actually lost him.

It was just a simple fight, but what if he thought that she was irresponsible and decided to breakup with her? Just the thought made her eyes water.

Her vision was blurred as she drove the car. She knew it was dangerous, but she didn’t want to stop and let the depressing thoughts take over her mind. Before she knew it, a big van came out of the road with the corner street and crashed into the side of her car, causing her upper body to move forward and smash in the front mirror.

She could feel the pain, the blood rushing out of the wounds on her body, and the voices of the paramedics around her. But she was too exhausted to stay awake, and before she knew it, her eyes rolled in the back of her head and she blacked out.

Preshow Sensate things

(This may have spoiler for those who haven’t seen season 2!!)

- The parents of each Sensate have all seen at least one foreign language being sung from their child’s mouth. When pressed the children didn’t know that they had been singing a Icelandic lullaby or a religious chant in Hindi. They were just singing what was in their head.

Once when Nomi was in a row with her parents, she yelled at them in Swahili for about ten minutes. She was locked in her room for being a ‘devil child’ not long after.

- Every Sensate aside from Sun was proficient with chopsticks as soon as they touched them. Didn’t even have to be shown how to use them, they just did with the ease of someone being raised on using them.

- Wolfgang once got dared to jump onstage at a club by Felix and mess around with the set up there. He proceeded to drop the sickest beats for several minutes before he was escorted off stage. He was offered a job there not long after but he declined as he didn’t know where to begin with DJ-ing.

- Lito was only in a fight once when he was younger, and he managed to break the kids’ arm with a ridiculous form of martial arts. The view of this super tough and manly boy persisted through the years, and is one of the reasons he was picked up for his first movie as an action role.

Lito has no idea what happened between the first punch and the kid crying at his feet, but he felt p o w e r f u l.

- Riley has broken out of handcuffs no more than five times despite never learning how to do so. She’s impressed a lot of people with that trick.

- The first time Capheus ever went on a computer, he shut down a large portion of the power grid with his 'messing around’. He still has no memory of being taught what internet explorer even was, but sometimes he dreams of long codes and in his sleep his fingers twitch against invisible keys.

- Though she has no idea how, Sun managed to pass her final chemistry test in high school with flying colours to secure her the grades needed for university/college. Her professor couldn’t explain how she’d done it as they’d already checked her for cheating, but Sun couldn’t even explain what possessed her to write several pages on parts of chemistry even her fellow students hadn’t known.

- Will became best friends with Diego after he proceeded to do some dope and fancy bar tending skills at a party they were both invited to. Despite the fact Will couldn’t hold the liquor he expertly poured and Diego was stuck holding him upright a few hours later, the latter knew that this boy was going to be his best friend, even if it only was for his fancy cocktails.

(Will claimed he has no idea how to make any of those fancy drinks, and Diego always thought he was holding out on him until he met Lito and kind of went “ahhhh…you’re the fancy bar dude.”)

- Kala won’t tell anyone how she managed to get an important business partner for her work from Korea, but even she’s not entirely sure how she apparently managed to seduce the young man with her dry humour and quick Korean. To this day Kala still doesn’t know what she did, but now most people at work go to her for business advice as she apparently has the know how??

- The sensates sometimes had moments when they were younger of almost dysphoria.

There were days when Nomi almost felt okay in her body prior to the surgery. She can almost feel phantom full hips and budding breasts, and for once she didn’t feel like she was wearing a false skin. She felt totally and completely female both outside and in, and not even her family could take that away on those days.

In contrast there were days where the others didn’t feel comfortable in their bodies. A crawling sensation on their skin as they were hyper aware of what made up their sex. Days where the boys found themselves almost looking longingly at skirts and flowing tops, and feeling uncomfortable with their scratchy stubble. On those days the other girls couldn’t help but feel oddly grateful in their bodies, and more self-confident than usual.

- Sexuality was another confusing aspect when the sensates grew up.

There were days where Will found himself looking at men with a sexual desire he had only ever felt towards women. He was straight (was being the key word here) but sometimes he found himself being turned off by the thought of full thighs and long hair wrapped around his hands.

Kala occasionally found herself gazing after the soft dark skin of girls walking by, immediately feeling ashamed after as that wasn’t something a proper Indian woman should do according to her family. But the older she got the more she grew accepting of the idea of loving both sexes. And when she finally connected with the others, she could feel acceptance within them.

Lito will always be a gay man. That’s who he is and always will be, but the lines of sexes blurs whenever he is with the sensates, and it reminds him of the feelings of his childhood where sometimes he didn’t even know who he was or what he liked.

(I’m sorry this is so long!!)

title: take my heart and put it in your pocket (AO3)

summary: 

The way Clarke sees it, there are only two ways to explain the situation; Clarke and Raven have the same secret admirer with remarkably bad taste, or Clarke and Raven have two separate secret admirers with similar, but remarkably bad tastes.

Or.

The one where Clarke is in love with her best friend and, also, someone is secretly giving her and Raven lame gifts that she kind of likes.

word count:  2588

A/N: This is really bad fluff. Not even in a self-deprecating way. Like, I think I just needed to write this much fluff for some reason. It was almost therapeutic. Anyway, there’s some background sea mechanic, if that’s your thing.


The way Clarke sees it, there are only two ways to explain the situation; Clarke and Raven have the same secret admirer with remarkably bad taste, or Clarke and Raven have two separate secret admirers with similar, but remarkably bad tastes. Either way, she thinks it’s kind of sweet.

Raven, on the other hand, has a different approach to the whole thing.

okay but in episode 8 when sana apologizes for what she said about homosexuality and then isak asks her about islam? like i always thought that was a weird way to segue into sana’s BOSS speech about religion/hate/fear but now that i’ve watched it for the 2348854973rd time i realize that isak is asking about sana and what she thought of him being homosexual.

it doesn’t really matter to isak what the latest research on homosexuality says (he didn’t read the link!); what matters is what sana thinks. he wants to know how homosexuality affects her religion, her personal life. he wants her to be okay with him and he wants her approval.

and yes she teaches us all an important lesson but she also just looks isak in the eye and makes sure that he understands.

the same as always: she was his friend before and she still is.

Funeral Suit - Shelby!reader

Mum’s the Word | Funeral Suit 

You felt as though some strange sense of déjà vu had passed over you. Sitting on the low end of the garden wall was your father and there you were, standing at the door. You hadn’t seen him since the wedding, despite keeping in touch with Grace. It was she who wrote you letters daily and first brought Charlie round to meet you.  

During the funeral you stayed with your brother wandering the unfamiliar house and looking at all the portraits hung up. There were pictures in Charlie’s room of your father’s family and you felt as if you were trespassing just looking at them. This, the house, the Shelby name, the business, it would be Charlie’s legacy. He would be the golden child and your father would provide for him what he had never been able to provide for you.  

After passing Charlie off to a maid who insisted she take the boy you headed downstairs and out the back doors, surprised to find your father having a cigarette away from all his family.

miiiikasaaaa  asked:

Hi Assistent/Daddy, hope you're having good day :) I got one question. How would Mikasa, Levi, Armin, Sasha, Ymir and Hanji approach their crush?

Mikasa: Is very careful that no one finds out that she has a big crush. She would try to be very close to the person and make sure they know that they know how important they are

Levi: Would be still very distant but would spend more quality time with said crush. He would invide them to tea or to take a walk

Armin: Would be someone who tries to get the attention of the crush, he would often talk about whatever the person likes and would make cute, self made presents

Sasha: Would share her favourite things to make sure the person knows how wonderful and important they are, later she would probably have enough courage to tell the person about her feelings

Ymir: Would literally just tell the person

Hanji: Would try to do all kinds of things to get attention from the crush..anything really

anonymous asked:

Could you do some hcs on Jared's daughter being at Coachella?

She uses it as a chance to blend in and let loose and have fun with her friends away from the spotlight her dad brings.

Jared knows how important that is, so he keeps his distance but still texts her constantly making sure she’s okay.

Her and her friends say fuck vip like her dad takes and want to have the experience of being in the mix.

Jared loves that she’s taking an interest in music and getting enjoyment out of it.

She stops by the black fuel booth to support her uncle.

Jared doesn’t want to let her leave but can’t stop smiling from how happy she is.

anonymous asked:

hi!! i absolutely love your blog omg!! if ur ok with answering this, how would the shiganshina trio react to their S/O hurting themselves? thank you! 💖

I’m so happy that you’re enjoying the blog! <3 And I wasn’t exactly sure what you meant by “hurting themselves” so I took two different interpretations for each one. 

Eren would slightly panic at seeing his S/O injured, but it wouldn’t take long for him to snap into action and do all he can to help. Because he is a bit panicked, his fingers are usually shaking, but he’s still always there to hold his S/O’s hand until help can be found. He tries to distract them from the pain with jokes and stories, and will continue to do so to cheer them up during the recovery process. If it’s a self-inflicted injury, he’ll get really upset. “Can’t you see how important you are? To me? To everyone?” He often needs to be reminded not to make it into a guilt-trip, and that’s not his intention at all; he’s just really upset that his S/O was upset enough to hurt themselves and he didn’t realize it. But he’ll still be his usual sweet self with them too. 

Mikasa would spring into action, blocking out all else until she knows that her S/O is okay. She’ll take charge of the situation, assessing the injury and deciding what needs to be done to fix it. If she can fix it, she will. If not, she’ll get her S/O to someone who can help as fast as physically possible. Her heart is beating so fast in her chest; she just wants them to be okay. She’s also very soft and sweet during her S/O’s recovery, never leaving their side if she can, and helping them through every step of the recovery, no matter how serious or minor. Now, if it’s a self-inflicted injury, she’ll do everything in her power to make sure it doesn’t happen again. She won’t address it, but it will always be the unspoken truth behind all her worried flutterings. She’ll make sure that they know that they are the most important thing in the world to her, and she won’t let them go down that road. 

Armin panics hard core when he sees his S/O in danger of any kind, injuries especially. He tends to assume the worst, but still works to make sure that doesn’t happen. He does whatever he can in the moment to be helpful to the situation, even if that’s just holding his lover’s hand and whispering reassuring things in their ear. He’ll read to them while they’re recovering, sometimes even making up stories to keep them entertained. If it’s a self-inflicted injury, he’ll do whatever he can to make sure it doesn’t happen again. He will address it head on, asking what made them feel the need to do that, and he’ll probably cry knowing that they felt that way without telling him. And from then on, he’ll be even more sensitive to them and their emotional needs to ensure that it does not happen again. 

So I refuse to believe Jocelyn is dead
  • There’s no way they would kill off such an important character in the 4th episode. 
  • Clary just got her back
  • Lucelyn got their first kiss and we need more.
  • Plus Jocelyn was acting hella shady this ep so it wouldn’t make sense for her to just be killed off.
  • The Sebastian storyline is coming soon and she is pretty important in that regard.
  • They killed her offscreen which would be a pretty crap was of killing an important character.
  • We need a Lucelyn wedding or I’m suing.
  • Malec have their first date soon and I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t be doing that if Jocelyn was actually dead.
  • Valentine still loves Jocelyn, why would he send a demon into the institute if he thought it would kill her? I don’t know how but maybe she got out/valentine has her? idk I’m in denial okay.
  • LUCELYN IS ENDGAME DO THEY REALLY WANT TO MESS WITH ME
  • There’s a promo for 2x05 where Clary is talking about how she can bring Jocelyn back so maybe she is dead and Clary brings her back somehow???

I JUST DON’T BELIEVE THEY WOULD KILL HER

Ladybug had canceled patrol this week.

He was greeted with only an audio call the afternoon of the day, and it had been half drowned out with loud sounds in the background.

“I-uh, it’s just- there’s a lot going on at my end of things and I really c-can’t do it this week or bad things will happen. You should take the night off too.” She didn’t even give him a chance to cut in before he heard a loud snap over the line and a frustrated grunt from his partner. “Okaysorrygottagobye!”

Problem was, since that patrol started during his shift, he already got the night off approved by his boss.

“Plaaaaaaaaagg.” Adrien flopped onto his bed after the call ended, burying his face in his pillow. “I don’t like this.”

x-01-king  asked:

Here's a good scenario: it's Christmas time in the Commonwealth and Sole Survivor is dressing up like old st nick and handing out gifts. What're the companions reactions?

I’m writing this as if Christmas is relatively rare outside of Diamond City, since that’s the only place I’ve ever seen it referenced (on Dec 25th in-game there are lights, trees, etc). -Moss

CAIT- Growing up the way she did meant she didn’t get to celebrate a whole lot of holidays. Any gifts she might have gotten, her parents took. So Cait cackles when she sees Sole at first- they look ridiculous. But she gets flustered when Sole hands her a box with an old bow tied around it. People don’t just… give other people things for free. What kind of holiday is this, anyway? Cait wants to make fun of whatever’s inside at first- she doesn’t want to show how much it means to her. But later, in private, she promises to treasure it forever.

CODSWORTH- He never did get to celebrate Christmas pre-war. His first real holiday with Sole’s family would have been Halloween- and, well, we all know how that ended. Like Sole, he throws himself into the celebrations, insisting on preparing the meal and spiffing up the celebration area as best as he can. When he sees Sole’s attire, he comments wistfully that he wishes he could have seen a pre-war Christmas, and that its nice of Sole to try and give everybody one. He doesn’t expect that Sole has anything in that bag for him, though, so when Sole pulls out a present with his name on it, he’s flustered to the point of tears (well, his voice sounds teary, anyway).

CURIE- Curie remembers Christmas in the Vault, the one day out of the year when all the work stopped. It was quite inefficient, in her opinion, but now she understands that there are more benefits to this gift-giving than she thought. It’s an opportunity to show people that you know them and care about them. Apparently it’s also an opportunity for Sole to have some fun and dress up in crazy clothes, although when Curie first sees them, she questions their sanity. She’s taken aback when Sole gives them a gift- she hadn’t expected it and although she’s overjoyed, she laments that she’s unsure what the proper response is.

DANSE- Christmas in the Brotherhood isn’t the biggest holiday of the year, but the Knights usually gathered to have a drink or two on December 25th, so Danse has fond memories of it. He doesn’t quite understand why Sole is doing these things- that suit Sole is wearing is hardly Brotherhood material (although it’s got so much stuffing, it probably would protect them in a fall), and he’s skeptical about the idea of giving away the things Sole worked hard for. He changes his tune when Sole hands him his present- he didn’t expect one and feels a little unworthy. But he’s starting to gain a new appreciation for the meaning of Christmas.

DEACON- Dez and the gang celebrate Christmas with a bottle of wine and a couple of fondly-exchanged presents. Deacon somehow managed to never be around to give or receive, so he doesn’t have many recent fond memories of Christmas. He calls Sole out on their, “uhh, unique?” disguise, and finds the idea that people pre-war would tell their children that a cookie thief would be breaking into their homes every Dec. 25th a little weird. He hasn’t gotten a present in a long time, so when Sole hands him a wrapped box, he’s suspicious, though he hides the reaction. But he’s known Sole for a long time now and knows that they’re just this generous- there’s no secret code taped to the bottom of the box with the location of a package or anything. He knows. He checked everywhere.

DOGMEAT- He doesn’t recognise Sole at first and has to sniff them all over to make sure it’s really them and they haven’t been eaten by some guy in a beard and red suit. Once he gets used to it, he’s happily surprised to see everyone gathering and follows Sole around at the heel, not wanting to miss a moment. When the presents come out, Dogmeat wants to help with the packaging- mostly this means viciously tearing it apart, tail wagging the whole time. Sole makes sure to use extra paper/cardboard to wrap his present of a juicy bone or an old teddy bear.

HANCOCK- Diamond City is the hub of all things Christmas, so Hancock, who grew up there, has a lot of fond memories of it. Every year in Goodneighbor he has a holiday soirée where the whole town is invited. When Sole explains the story behind Santa to him, he has a lot of fun with the whole ‘sit on Santa’s lap’ thing, regardless of whether or not he’s romanced. He loves the whole idea and asks Sole if he can be Santa next year (“Absolutely not.” / “Aw, why?” / “You know only children are supposed to sit on Santa’s lap, right?” / “That’s no fun.”). When Sole gives him a present, he hides his surprise with a grin. It warms his heart that Sole even thought of him- he’s used to being the generous one, and it reminds him how good a simple gift can make people feel.

MACCREADY- Hang on, Christmas is about giving things away? What’s the point of that? MacCready is skeptical and on the defensive, even more so when he sees the way Sole is dressing and behaving. He asks if that super mutant they killed yesterday hit them in the head harder than they thought. When Sole says they have a gift for him, he thinks they’re being sarcastic, and responds in turn- more crap for him to lug around. But when he realises that Sole meant it seriously, he first turns defensive- “You’re giving me something? Why?”- and then reluctantly grateful. He’s not used to having a friend like Sole, and it still amazes them that they can do these generous things without expecting anything in return.

NICK- Even though Christmas is still celebrated in the Commonwealth, Nick knows all the old colored lights and plastic trees pale in comparison to what it was back in the day. He prefers to spend the day in quiet, peaceful contemplation. Sole, of course, is having none of that crap. They’re wearing a beard, damn it, and he’s going to enjoy himself if it makes him short circuit. Nick puts on a show of being a big grump, but he likes having someone to pull him out of a bad place and remind him that there are still good things out there in the world, even if those good things come bearing gifts of toasters. (Stuffed into the toaster are about a hundred pristine packs of cigarettes. Sole has a sense of humor, but they sure do know what he likes.)

PIPER- Piper both loves and hates Christmas. It’s important to her that she makes Christmas an enjoyable holiday for Nat, but sometimes she forgets about her own happiness. The second she sees Sole, she starts planning a historical piece on the meaning of Christmas, and wonders if she can make it an add on piece to how Sole sees Diamond City by comparing their idea of Christmas to the current one. She’s used to the act of gift-giving from growing up with Nat, so she probably has the most well-adjusted reaction to Sole giving her a gift, and tells them how much it means to her.

PRESTON- A holiday that’s about giving gifts and services to people you care about is right up Preston’s alley, and he loves to celebrate it. It’s his favourite holiday, even if not a lot of folks out there in the Commonwealth have time for it anymore. Even without gift-giving, it’s a time to let people know you appreciate them. Preston’s tickled pink when he sees Sole in their Santa costume, once more trying to make everyone’s day a little brighter. His eyes get wide when Sole pulls something out of that bag for him, of all people, and he’s not sure how to respond. (After his 12th thank you, Sole swears they’re never giving him another present again.)

STRONG- Strong doesn’t understand the merit to giving people knick knacks and baubles without asking for anything in return- and he hates the costume, although he respects Sole enough to give them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they want people to see them as a target. Maybe all that padding is actually a form of armor. He can’t come up with an excuse for the beard, though. He keeps whatever Sole gives him close, though, even though he doesn’t see the point in it. If it’s important to Sole, it’s important to him. Maybe it’ll help him find the milk of human kindness.

X6- The Institute doesn’t celebrate Christmas. X6 respects Sole’s ability to make a fool of themselves, but he’s certainly not taking part in the celebration. When Sole gives him a gift, he misunderstands the intention, thinking that Sole is just outfitting him for another mission (if it’s something practical) or giving him something they need him to protect like a keepsake. Sole explains to him that it was a gift- it belongs to him. He reminds them that he is a synth, and that personal property means little to him. That doesn’t mean he’s going to give it back, though.

Alarkling prompt if you are interested: "When is a monster not a monster? Oh, when you love it." (quote from Caitlyn Seihl)

Note: I did this in the same ‘verse as my fanfic Start a War because I’m lazy. I hope it works, if not feel free to throw something else at me!

“And what is it that makes a monster?” The old woman whispered, poking at the hearth, “…Maybe it’s the same thing that stops one.”

She finds him in the stables. Which is strange, even after all these years. Because she does not think of Aleksander as a man with hobbies—doesn’t think of him as someone who sets routines for himself or irons his shirts or loads sugar into his porridge. When she thinks of her husband (concubine, a snide voice snickers in her head, and it sounds too much like Nikolai or Mal or both), she, too, sees him as how he wants to be seen: in his black kefta, over a war table, signing missives to send troops into Fjerdan territories. 

She does not always see him as he is now: sleeves rolled to the elbow, hands smoothing over the sable coats of his favorite horse, a hum coming from deep within his throat. Hay in his hair.

Solavellan prompt- first time they held hands 😊

Breathe in.  Breathe out.

Nira could hear Solas’ words echo through her mind even amongst the chaos that was happening in front of her.  Exhaling as quietly as possible, she once again felt surprised by how calm a simple breath could make her feel.  As she had been reminded several times by Varric and the others, this was a party and after everything that had happened, she deserved to enjoy it.  So why couldn’t she?

Pulling her knees close to her chest, she looked out at the dancing people as they whooped and hollered in complete excitement.  She wasn’t used to this. Clan Lavellan never had anything like this and with so many people…

Everyone here deserved this party.  After returning from Therinfal Redoubt and closing the Breach, a little happiness was way overdue.  They had been in fear for so long and now, somehow thanks to her, they were safe.  At least, that was what they told her.  She didn’t feel like she deserved any of the praise for anything that had happened, as she had quite literally just stumbled into this disaster.  If being with her clan had taught her anything, it’s that she wasn’t ready for any sort of position of authority and in time, they will see that as well.

You will fail.  All in due time.

Placing her hands on her ears and curling into her body, Nira did whatever she could think of to drown the demon out.  She took a deep breath as Solas had taught her, distracting her mind from the truth of what he was saying.  It wouldn’t be long…they would see it just as her clan did.

So focused on trying to distract her thoughts, Nira didn’t even hear Solas walking up behind her until he placed a hand on her head and spoke her name.  “Nira’sal.  Walk with me for a moment.”

His voice snapped her out of it, the demon seemingly disappearing from her thoughts in an instant.  Nira looked up at him and with a weak smile, pushed herself up to walk beside him.  Solas began walking out the front doors, away from the noise and merriment taking place.  She could feel a sense of calming the further they got from the camp and she could finally feel herself relax.

“It looked like you use a moment.  I hope it was alright to steal you away from them, seeing how you were so far from the activities.”  Solas spoke, placing his hands behind his back in his usual way as they walked out past the training grounds.

Nira looked over at him and smiled.  “You know, if I didn’t know any better, I’d think you were stalking me.”

A hint of a smile crossed his features as he met her gaze.  “Oh?”  He chuckled softly as he continued.  “That would take up a good amount of my time, seeing on how you rarely sit still for more than a few moments.  I dare not make the attempt, but I am intrigued by the notion that you would think as much.”

“You just…always come at the right time and when I need someone there the most…”  Nira smiled, her eyes falling to the snow below them.  “Every time I feel myself slipping away, there you are.”

Solas frowned.  “The demon returned?”  Nira shrugged in response.

“It never stopped.  I guess I’m just an easy target, now more than ever.  Everything that I saw in the future only seemed to prove even more so that I’m not cut out for this.”

Solas stopped, grabbing onto her arm before she walked ahead of him further.  “I told you to let me know should he return.  That demon has an unnatural attachment to you that needs to be severed.  How am I supposed to help you if you won’t let me know that it’s still haunting you?”  

Nira forced a smile on her face as she peeked back up at him.  “Solas, you and I both know that there are more important things for you to spend your time on.  We need to figure out what created the Breach and make sure that it doesn’t happen again.”

“Nira’sal, please.”  She paused, watching him closely.  His voice was filled with so much persistence and worry, a tone she had never heard from him before to the point where she wasn’t quite sure how to respond.  “This torment needs to stop.  Please let me help you.”  

The edge of her mouth curled as she let her hand move slowly down to his, gripping it softly.  “I’ll be fine.  The fate of the world is much more important than some demon.  I can fight through it a little while longer and once we close all the rifts, then we can focus on me, alright?”  His eyes dropped to their hands as he slowly interlaced their fingers.  Nira knew that look.  He was already thinking of a way to get rid of the demon and despite what she told him, she knew he was going to look for a way until he found it.  

In an attempt to pull him out of his mind, she tugged him forward, keeping their hands together.  “Come on, let’s walk around a bit longer before we start heading back.”


She was still being tormented by the Fear demon.  Of course she was…why hadn’t he seen it sooner?  Why didn’t she let him know?  He could have helped her, but despite his offers, she refuses.  Stubborn, stubborn girl.  

He took a soft breath as he followed along behind her, concentrating on their intertwined hands.  He should pull away, but he found himself unable to.  There was something about this girl that would not allow him to pull back.  These feelings that were creeping up on him, was not a feeling that he had hoped would resurface again.  Solas closed his eyes, taking a deep breath.  She was aggravating, hyperactive, and probably one of the most stubborn people he had ever met, but…he could feel himself getting lost in her.  A feeling, surprisingly enough, he had desperately been searching for since he woke.  He knew the path that he had set himself on and now that he was here with her, he felt himself diverting from that path and in the desperate process of finding a new one.

He shook the thoughts from his mind.  No matter what he wanted, he would not allow himself such frivolities.  He had a mission to complete and that was all he needed to be focused on.

“Solas! Look!”  Nira shouted, despite the fact that she was mere steps in front of him and their hands still interlocked.  She pointed out in front of her towards a small figure by the trees.  It was a good distance away, but the wolf’s outline was unmistakable.  “Come on, let’s go see it.”

“Nira’sal, wait!”  It was too late.  She started making her way towards it, breaking their hands apart and leaving Solas behind with an exhausted smile on his face.  “How are you to believe that I stalk you when I can hardly keep up with you when we’re together.”  The two struggled to make their way through the snow.  Solas kept a keen eye out on the wolf as they made their way towards it, immediately stopping and grabbing her once the wolf looked up in their direction.

A soft growl echoed through the air as the wolf stared directly at him.  Unable to break eye contact, Solas tried to pull Nira back with him as he stepped backward.  “Come on…”  The experience sent a shudder through his body.  Solas was sure it was just a coincidence, but it was also completely possible that this was some sort of warning.  

She looked up at him with big eyes, but Solas kept his vision trained on the animal in front of them.  “But, Solas…”

“We need to head back.  The others will be worried if they notice that we’re still gone.”  He kept his voice steady, slowly pulling her away from the animal.  

From out in the distance, a loud noise resonated through the air.  It was difficult to tell what the noise belonged to with the continuing echo, but it was enough to scare the wolf.  It was enough to worry Solas as well.  Something didn’t feel right.

“We should leave,”  Solas repeated.  Nira nodded, immediately slipping her hand back into his and turning with him as they made their way back towards Haven. 

His eyes fell to the ground, unsure of how to react.  He couldn’t help but have this feeling that the wolf was some sort of warning from the spirits.  Over the past few weeks, Solas had felt himself slipping away from their intended mission.  Nira’sal was supposed to be a pawn.  An easy person to manipulate to get exactly what he wanted as he made his way towards returning the artifact to its rightful owner.  Now, he wasn’t so sure.

“Thank you for coming out here with me.  It’s nice to get away from everything that’s happening, despite how cold it is.”  As they made their way towards the front gate, Nira had somehow wrapped herself around his right arm without him even noticing.  Her teeth chattered and her body shook, but the smile on her face only seemed to grow.

He couldn’t stop the smile from forming as he watched her struggle.  “I’ve told you many times before that should ever you need anything, my door is always open.”  In a matter of moments, the thought of the wolf they had encountered vanished from his mind.  Instead, Solas lead her to Haven in hopes that their body heat was enough to keep her warm for just a while longer. 


AN; blah does how rusty I am show???  -dies inside- This was literally supposed to happen just before Corypheus shows up…not sure if I did a good job of conveying that or not…maybe…whatever I’ll fit it better later.

Hopefully this was okay since you guys know I haven’t written anything in months but hopefully, I’ll catch my stride again!!
