hymnes

Thought Of The Day

I have never heard Mikael sing.

I’ve heard other Archangels sing. It’s a powerful thing; true, any angel singing, really singing, is a powerful and slightly terrifying thing. But when an Archangel opens their mouth and lets out a hymn, things happen. Stars fall. Seas boil. Earth shatters. Dead rise from graves. You get the idea.

I’ve heard Gabriel sing many times. I’ve heard Rafael sing a few times. I’ve even heard Azrael sing only twice, and it was in the same grim week of August 1945. I heard Metatron sing once and only once. And I’d think near any angel has heard Sandalphon sing at least once.

But I have never once heard Mikael sing. Perhaps for good reason.

EDIT: I almost forgot to note Uriel. This is because Uriel scares the hell out of me and I have gone out of my way to never hear them sing.

do you like the song vanilla twilight by owl city? euphoric, to say the least

LMAOOOO yes that song was a hymn for me when i was 13

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

Remus Lupin & Sirius Black, Gryffindor common room, 1977

Be it known that you crush heads! Be it known that you devour corpses like a dog! Be it known that your gaze is terrible! Be it known that you lift your terrible gaze! Be it known that you have flashing eyes! Be it known that you are unshakeable and unyielding! Be it known that you always stand triumphant!

What You Do To Me (Final)

Draco Malfoy x Reader

Requested by: Well, @theoneandonlysaucymo and @douchepoolonsie spammed me with a lot of Tom Felton/Draco Malfoy gifs. This is because of them. Good god. You two I swear.

Word Count: ~3700

Warning: Them being 16 in this, I wasn’t comfortable going into detail on the smut (Sorry guys!!) But this is fluffy and has some angst in it as well.

A/N: A bit of an AU, just no Dark Lord trying to destroy everything here. There is a possibility for a smutty epilogue, when they’re older so it’s a lot less awkward for me to write.

The “what if” Draco Malfoy actually got to be a normal student… well, as normal as you could get for a magical school. What changed for him? He met you.

Other Parts: (Part 1) (Part 2)

The night of the ball had been one of the best of your school life at Hogwarts. You had floated on cloud nine for the remainder of the year, shooting Draco smiles in the hallways; smiles that held small promises, and a large secret.

Draco made it clear at your first meeting together. No one could know about the two of you. Draco had his reputation to uphold, as you thought of it. Being seen with a Gryffindor girl would end terribly for him, but he didn’t want to stop seeing you.

You two met in the most random of spots; the library, a supply closet of Filch’s down in the dungeons. Your housemates would bombard you with questions since you had become a recluse lately, but you just had to make up excuses. It hurt, but you didn’t want them to know either.

When you were around your friends, things were the worst. Draco would be snide towards you and the other Gryffindors, making it a goal to say something nasty. You knew it was a façade, but it didn’t hurt any less.

You never realized how much it hurt Draco. When you two were alone, he’d hold you as close as he could, whisper softly in your hair and place gentle kisses to the side of your head. You’d place gentle kisses along his tight jaw, rubbing his sides gently or his arms to get him to try and relax. It was like he was a completely different person in private.
