Adrien wears a lot of clothes due to him being the sun spirit, he is constantly exposed to the heat.
And onto that, another reason he wears a lot of clothes aka the giant robe is because he has a lot of scars and all sorts from battles, the heat and just general angsty shit (more to come on this next time)
I’ll give you this though; because Mari has rejected him for…decades, sometimes he gets lonely which is why out of the two, he is more likely to go to his human version so he can to interact with people.
But, their human forms have restrictions.
To transform into their human versions, they have to take off their respective earrings.
They have a limited amount of time in their human versions, as the time passes, their tattoos begin to fade and they cannot, at all costs, have their tattoos fully faded and gone.
If the tattoos fully fade, they become mortals, and as much as Adrien does want to become a mortal, the balance of basically everything in the universe goes to the shits and basically we might die.
Due to his excessive use of his human version, he is often scolded by gods. Adrien has never gotten his tattoo fully faded but he’s had some very close calls.
Mari has every constellation on her back as tattoos and as time passes for her in her human form, the constellations disappear one by one.
Both Adrien and Mari are saddened about their losing connection to humans. They were once actively interactive with the people way back then but during the heavy times of industrialisation and of course, environmental issues, sometimes it’s hard for both to reach out. And this has definitely affected both physically…
Mari fell in love with Human Adrien in the time of the French Revolution when he fought as a soldier.
In their spirit forms, only animals and chosen humans can sense Adrien and Mari.
Birds love Adrien and can sense him more strongly than any other animals and tend to follow him around in his spirit form.
Spirit Adrien has seen Human Mari….more to come on this later.
I’m not going to reveal all of this yet but here’s the thing; the spirits don’t just watch over the people for decades without doing anything…
And Mari and Adrien are definitely not the only spirits around.
That’s it for now but yeah….def some more soon ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
so my aunt put a statue of the Virgin Mary on this huge rock in our front yard (for Catholic reasons), and it was really windy today and it fell over and broke and it was full of people???? also some animals
there’s a bunch more figurines in the statue that wouldn’t come out. and the statue had no openings or any way to put stuff in it, which means they were put in the statue when it was made. anyways it freaked my uncle out (I yelled across the yard to him that “Mary broke and she’s full of people”) and he told me to bring it inside to show my aunt, who will presumably have some Catholic metaphor/wisdom to explain it.
I wonder how alien historians would react to the history of our planet? “What! You had two world wars?!? We did'nt have any!” “A king was killed in the middle of his goverments Senate?” “A scientist literally gave herself radiation poisoning by studying it not knowing the safety requirements?”
Imagine aliens reaction to a human literally laughing in the face of danger. Just, GIANT SPACE MONSTER THING and all the human does is laugh while it loads its rifle. Band of space pirates and one is asking for the human as a bride because of reasons, "pfft, no."
Yussep had faced many dangers. The Falls of Chaos, the race of creatures known only as Devourers. Each time he had barely escaped with his life. But nothing–NOTHING– scared him more than humans. Yussep and Mari had been travelling together on this hell planet for almost two years, long after his species invasion had ended. Poorly. The earth had all but destroyed their entire fleet, so they’d retreated, leaving Yussep alone. Mari had always been scary, but this…. now she was downright terrifying.
She had faced a Many Faced Night Crawler, from a planet no ship could get near. The Night Crawlers were the ultimate killing machines. Fast, strong, AND smart. The ultimate combo. So when a legion had landed on Earth, Yussep prepared to say goodbye to his new home. He and Mari had been passing by chance when the fleet had landed. He’d tried to warn her, tried to drag her away. Over their time together he had grown bonded with her. But Mari wrenched her arm from his grasp. When she spoke it was little more than a feral growl.
“They picked the wrong planet. I am done with these damn aliens always invading my damn planet. ” she stormed towards the fleet, looking impossibly tiny agaisnt their war ships, her dark skin barely registering againt the midnight black hull. Yussep quietly mourned his friend as he followed behind, his brain screaming at him to run, to do the logical thing as he always had. But compared to the night crawlers, Mari was a kitten.
And she had just walked into a wolf pack.
He couldnt leave her. Not now. He would die by her side. Together to the end, just like he promised. He winced as the mighty black doors opened with a hiss. But Mari planted herself in front of them, hands on her hips, staring up defiantly as the first night crawler set foot on the Earth.
He’s never seen one so close. They were huge. Towering nearly 12 feet above Mari, their skin was living shadow. Not just dark, as he had been lead to believe. These creatures were MADE of shadows, swirling together, whispering, stretching out in dangerous vines. Blood red eyes glowed like xarax engines. Dear stars. They would not survive this. Not even Mari. The beast lowered its head, taking in Mari’s stubborn form. She lifted her head, taking a deep breath as she shouted,
“FUCK OFF, THIS IS YOUR ONE AND ONLY WARNING!!” The beast cocked its head, its face splitting apart to reveal rows of jagged teeth, razor sharp, perfect for shredding soft flesh. They were so, sooo dead. Mari took one look at those teeth…and laughed. She threw her head back and howled into the sky.
“ it’s like a frickin cheese grater!”
Mari switched from terrifying, to horrifying.
Without another word, still laughing, Mari launched herself towards the beasts lowered head. She grasped it firmly by its hearing appendeges, drawing her knife from her side.
“Ha! Too late for you, pal,” she raked her blade across its exposed throat in one smooth movement, fury blazing in her eyes. The beast fell and melted into shadows that sunk into the ground. Mari turned and bared her teeth at the fleet. Yussep could only watch as Mari raised her arms in triumph, in challenge.
And the undefeatable Night crawler fleet promptly took to the skies, fleeing as quickly as they dared. Mari watched them go before turning to Yussep with blood splattered on her face and a wicked gleam in her eye.
So everyone has that friend who you love to pieces but don’t trust at all right? Like they’ll get you food or something’s and you won’t touch it because WHAT DID YOU DO TO IT. DONT LIE TO ME. I KNOW YOU MESSED WITH IT. And whenever it has to do with your siblings that reaction is amplified. Imagine that with aliens
*alien brings drink to new human recruits in attempt to build a friendship*
Alien:Hello human Lila! I have broughht you a refreshment of your species life substance water!
Lila: err, what did you do to it.
Alien: Nothing, why would I tamper with it?
Lila: alright thanks but, who put you up to this. It wasn’t Dan wasn’t it. Well you can go tell him to buzz off.
*alien walk so away in confusion to go consult with Human Mary*
Mary: don’t worry about it, we refer to it a short our survival instinct
I’ve got @eshenly ’s permission to post it, so here they are, our OCs.
Humanized alcohol to be exact, the man is cider named Felix and the girl is “Bloody Mary”, Mary :3
(Don’t ask me how could they be dating lol)
PS: if you see here some hints on one popular fandom it is not a mistake ;) but hints are just hints, so those two are OCs.
