FLUFFY ZUTARA FIC RECS!!!!!!!!!!!11

1.) The Stalking Zuko Series by emletish

thoughts: My absolute favorite fluffy fic in this fandom. It’s written in an unconventional albeit REAAAALLY astounding style (read: First POV Katara writing in a journal hooo boy). Features drunk!Zuko, ticklish!Zuko, and overall #1FuckingDorkinTheWorld!Zuko, but also angsty!Zuko and dumbshit!Zuko who just wants to set everything on fire bc he’s a dumbshit sometimes tbh. You will laugh and cry and laugh and laugh and cry over and over again and I just cannot recommend this fic enough please go read it now edhsujsa.

Accompanying Oneshots if you’re up to it (you will be trust me):

  • the collected lists of zuko - a comprehensive list of things that annoy Katara and why Katara is the most impossible girl in the history of ever (which is why you love her Zuko. we all know. WE ALL. KNOW.), according to our favorite fire lord 
  • the crooked thing - they’re trying to keep this thing they have a secret; a.k.a. in which things are perfectly imperfect.
  • snuggling dysfunctional cats - all of this shit from Toph’s POV brb im fucking screaming .

2.) i didn’t know i was lonely (’til I saw your face) by raisindeatre

thoughts: Listen. LISTEN. @raisindeatre​ / Atia is an absolute GODDESS. Her writing style is one of the best I’ve seen in this fandom, and it’s absolutely breathtaking. She just blows my mind on a regular tbh. This fic is genius and stunningly weaves canon into a modern AU, and one that actually works (and there’s very few of those imho). Slow burn but worth it. Every word of this is golden (also please read all of raisindeatre’s work, she’s amazing I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH).

3.) Bones by sadladybug

thoughts: Zuko and Katara on the night of their wedding. I absolutely love it when authors weave in Fire Nation/Water Tribe/any kind of avatar lore into their stories (it amazes me moreso when it comes sTRAIGHT FROM THE AUTHOR’S OWN RESEARCH AND IMAGINATION) and I’m overall just a sucker for this kinda shit. This fic also achieves the perfect balance of smut and fluff, and is written so beautifully it just makes me wanna cry go read it pls. 

4.) Scars by Em Dixon

thoughts: “Katara is the only one with scar-touching privileges. Very quick read but beautiful all throughout. 


5. What Little She Can Do by chromeknickers

thoughts:

this is from chromeknickers’ collection of drabbles and ficlets (they’re very short, but they’re so well-written and they make me want to cry tbh). Not all of the entries are fluffy, so I’ve listed the ones that are!

From the same author’s Through the Looking Glass Series:



Special Mention:
swing and a miss by stellatiate, for beanaroony

Currently in the middle of reading this AND I CANNOT STOP FLAILING. It has some angst in it but the in-between fluff is where it’s at, fam. The writing style is very unique and i’ve never read anythign quite like it. It’s genius. Thank you so much to @babyfairybaekhyun for reccing this iufdhsuijhn

i havent been active in the fandom very much so this has been such a nice refresher! Plus i’m an absolute sucker for fluff. Anyhow, I miss you guys lots, so please accept this as a sort of gift from the bottom of this MIA zutarian’s heart. Enjoy and feel free to add more!!!

VIVA LA ZUTARAAAAA.

The Shadowhunter Chronicles + Characters
The Infernal Devices

“You know that feeling,” she said, “when you are reading a book, and you know that it is going to be a tragedy; you can feel the cold and darkness coming, see the net drawing tight around the characters who live and breathe on the pages. But you are tied to the story as if being dragged behind a carriage and you cannot let go or turn the course aside. I feel now as if the same is happening, only not to characters on a page but to my own beloved friends and companions. I do not want to sit by while tragedy comes for us. I would turn it aside, only I struggle to discover how that might be done.”

Requesting Proofreading for Safety before I Leave this Near that Patch of Wildflowers on the Campus Green

To whomever may read this,

I am a Creative Writing major looking for advice from anyone who may happen to read this. I cannot play an instrument, sing, etc, but I can write stories.  Magic has always been a particular focus of mine, and I would like to accept advice or ideas from any sources that may want to contribute.  I would enjoy reading my stories to any who may wish to hear them (a specific time and day of the week is yet to be set, but I will leave another note here detailing those things once I arrange my class schedule), and will welcome the ideas of anyone who has an idea that they might like to hear me use.

My roommate says I’m being reckless and too curious for my own good, but I really want to meet the Fae.  I am careful, though.  I always use the names of my characters instead of my own, have an iron bracelet that I can wear, and carry salt in my bag.  I make a point to be kind to all creatures, but birds and cats in particular seem to like me (I’m not sure if this is of any significance or just something that may work in my favor), and I am particularly skilled at finding small, neat things that might work as gifts or offerings.

As far as my dorm life, which is where I’ll most likely be reading (is this a good idea?), I always have sweet treats or snacks that anyone is welcome to (so long as it is not outright stolen; I wall always give permission is asked), frequently play quiet music, and am perfectly happy to receive visitors (preferably well-mannered, but I’ll probably let the occasional prank slide).

Is there anything about my letter that I should add/remove/change?  I want to befriend the Fair Folk while still staying safe.

Bonding With Your Dragon Spirit

**These methods are pretty broad spectrum and can also be used outside of dragon spirits.  These are just techniques and things I have done and this post is by no means all inclusive.  Thank you**

Bonding with your dragon spirit is an important thing to do, I think.  It helps you get closer with them and that opens the way to a good friendship and partnership!  Regardless of what kind of relationship you have with them (provided it’s a healthy one), doing these activities to feel closer is a great way to continue with your practice!

Sharing your passions!

Doing some sort of activity along side your dragon spirit that you love is a good one.  You are sharing something that you love with them and they are being included in it!  Do you like going for a walk?  Great, invite your dragon with you!  Like crafts?  Great!  work with them so you both can create something awesome!  How about cooking?  Also good, you can share the results when everything is finished!  The dragon spirit I currently work with actually likes to play games with me.  I found out through playing some Skyrim music and he was curious where it came from and now I actually have a Dragon age and Assassins Creed save file with his name on it.

Spells

I’ve always felt that spells are a great offering for your dragon.  But casting a spell with their help not only is good for working with your dragon, it’s also a great way to feel closer.  Even if it’s something small, like setting a circle!  I personally love to ask my dragon spirits to help me set a circle and it was always so nice because he would use his wings to do it so it was like I was in a tent.  It was so wonderful!  This is a great way to further your dragon magic and really get close and I strongly encourage it!  Of course this is only if the dragon in question is ok with it.  

Music

This technically could fall under the passions section but I kept it on its own since some people may not really know how to make music or be musically inclined.  But you can listen to music with them, look for songs that they like and have it playing just for the two of you.  I have a playlist on youtube for Rivaz and sometimes I listen to it when I’m going to sleep or I’ll play it when I’m trying to communicate with him.  I also like to sing for him and that is another thing you can do!

Divination

I think this is a big one.  Using the cards or pendulum or whatever medium you use is a great way to bond with them!  I have a reading in my shop available for purchase in which I speak with whatever dragon spirit I’m working with (currently Rivaz) and they will give you a message or advice!

Communication

This kind of ties in with divination but can stand on its own.  Talking with your dragon spirit is a great way you can get to know them, ask them questions and grow together.  Plus, dragon spirits can have some great advice even if its not always what you want to hear.

Sharing meals

So, this can also be considered an offering but I think it is a great one!  Sharing your meals, I think, is a very personal thing.  Think about how many times you’ve gone out to eat with friends?  This can be a similar thing!  I also think its a good thing to share some of your favorite foods with them!  I like to share my coffee and tea!

Astral Projecting/Lucid Dreaming

This is a great one and together you can go on adventures!  I have a post about one of my own experience here.  This is a fun way to see more things and grow closer.  There’s something to be said about discovering such places that you cannot normally see.

Reading

Reading and sharing stories is a fun one.  And every dragon may have their own preference!  Lore, myths, short stories all kinds of things can be used!  You can even share your favorite works with them!  Or even more so you can read them your own work if you write!

Writing

I like writing poetry and coming up with spells to work with dragons and it’s a good way.  You could also work with them to make your own story!  This section could fit in with a few other places on this list but I still felt like I could warrant it’s own spot!

Carrying offerings with you

This is one that I really like doing if my dragon spirit gives me permission. I often leave stones and crystals as an offering or even jewelry and I love to be able to carry those items with me when I leave the house.  It’s like a little extra reassurance that they are with me and it really makes me feel more connected, especially since they were ok with me taking a piece of their hoard with me.

Sleeping 

This may seem silly but if your dragon is ok with it, sleeping with them is a good way to bond.  My current dragon spirit is not really big on cuddles so I don’t really get to do it anymore but the previous dragon spirits I had loved it and it was so nice!  I highly recommend this method if you can!

Happy bonding!

The Way Home Pt. 1

Reader x Namjoon

Genre: Smut, angst, fluff, humor - vampire!au

Warnings: swearing, explicit sexual content, blood and gore, violence, mentions of physical abuse, kidnapping

A/n: If any of the mentioned might be triggering please do not read my story or know that you are reading at own risk. It is my story but I cannot control how my audience receives it.

Rated: M

Summary: Namjoon remembers Y/n as a seven year old girl that hid behind her father’s leg and didn’t dare say hi to the older boy. He remembers her when she was fourteen caught in the awkward stages of puberty, the poor girl even wore braces. After that he doesn’t remember more, she stopped coming to the fundraiser and important dinners with her parents when she entered the rebellious teenage stage. He hadn’t seen her for years, but one day her face was all over the news. At nineteen, the girl had been kidnapped while out with a friend celebrating her birthday. No one had been able to find her. Namjoon didn’t pay much attention to the case only hearing about it from his detective friend. His father had died some weeks prior to the kidnapping and he was busy taking over his father’s law firm at the age of twenty three. His father’s lawyers daughter’s kidnapping had nothing to do with him. Except it does now, two years later. Namjoon’s firm is thriving and he’s getting richer by the hour when Mr. Lee himself visits Namjoon and tells him Y/n is alive. Namjoon doesn’t know why that has anything to do with him but he’ll find out sooner or later won’t he?

 

A/n: The main character’s family name is: “Lee”,  this is because it simply makes my writing process easier. It is still written as a reader x Namjoon story though,  so don’t worry yourselves.  <3.

The infamous Tarot reference

Tarot reader here. Let me break this down for you. 

Premises - skip them if you’d like, the content is  down -. Way too often I have seen, in all kinds media, Tarot references that make absolutely zero sense to a reader. The whole “oh my he pulled the Detah card” discourse is the quintessence of it: as any tarot reader knows, the 13th card is not negative and in general - with an exception for this panel and this particular card - , not any card in negative per se. It all comes with the reading, in the context with the other cards and with the reading verse the card itself. 

Secondly: Simbolisms and Numbers. out of the many different decks - the Marseille Tarots, the most common, the Ryder-Waite, the ones I use in normal readings, the various kinds of historical tarots, the Cat Tarots, the Witches Tarots, the Stained Glass Tarots the [insert random stuff here] Tarot - out there, how do we readers identify the single cards? With the numbers, with the name - which is usually written in either Italian or French, for traditional decks - but most of all, wth the imagery. For example we know that The Fool Card, Il matto, card number 0 or 22 or no number depending on the decks, represents a young man dancing at the edge of a cliff, well dressed, uncaring, with one or two dogs by his side - if it’s one, black, if two, one is white. Because the imagery itself is a mnemonic technique for the the reader to remember the meaning - badly needed, if I may, because just the Major Arcana are 22, each with a wall of text of meanings and interactions with other cards, while the Minor, a whole deck consists of 78 cards. The number, to a tarot reader, is not even useful. It represents the stream of consciousness of the deck - here it gets complicated, so I’ll cut short - , it’s needed to identify the card just to non Tarot readers. That is wht most tarot references in media are simply not accurate: the author picks the cards, reads the meaning anc copies and pastes the number. But to say that is a reference is at the very least a simplification. However, I am not here to explain why it’s innacurate, I’m here to try to sneak a peek inside Ishida Sui’s mind and understand what this reference, for as innacurate as it may be, means to story. 

Thirdly: Interpretations. To be added to the massive amount complications above is the fact that every tarot reader has their own method. I for one know that mine is different from many others, from my mentor’s method, different, also, from Carl  Jung’s method - yes, Carl Gustav Jung, co-founder of modern psychology, used tarots. So while what I say to you cannot be completely different from the intepretation of another reader, I can assure you it won’t be the same. Before begininning a reading, I always warn my “clients” - in commas cause I don’t get paid lol - that this is a game, do not take it too seriously, it doesn’t define your existence, past or future. 

Lastly: I’ll be simplifying majorly the meanings and simbolism, for the sake of clarity and time. All that I say is accurate to the ends of explaining the issues here, but not for the issue of Tarots in general.

Having said all of this, let’s begin

Assuming that the number to be read in the panel up there is a 16 - next I’ll write what it could be in case it were a 6 instead -, assuming that all the premises didn’t happen and we are, in fact and without doubt, talking about the Tower card, La Torre, in Italian, and in French, in the ancient Marseille Tarots, which go back all the way to the Reinassance, La Maison Dieu, The house of God. Let’s concentrate on this meaning: the card is associated to the Babel Tower, a story of the Old Gospels, in which the Tower which intended to be as tall as the sky, to reach even God, is fated by Him to fall to ruin, as per the impossibility of communication between its builders, who all speak different language, and for the curse that is shall fall in the basements as it gets taller and taller. 

The Tower of Babel, Bruegel, 1563 - in front is King Nimrod, descendant of Noah, and the one who ordered the construction of the tower, overlooking the workers.

In short what does the Card mean: the rovinous triumph of the Ego. Failure, due to inattention, aiming too high and then falling apart. The bad materialization of ideal values who cause ruin and despair. God sent lighting to destroy the tower, and the tower fell

La Torre, Ryder-Waite tarots

Seeing that this is quite abstract, I’ll be more explicit. Just like Nimrod forgot to bow his head to the deity, so he is punished, for relying too much on everyday material values. The Tower was meant to achieve everything, it was meant to reach the sky, and it was, indeed, very high; but God let men build it so high just to make its fall even more disastrous.  

Now: substitute God with Ishida sui and men with “fans”, and you’ll immediately see what I’m getting at. 

When I do a reading, however, this is not all that I say. As my client stares at me baffled, I explain that in short, The Tower means BAD STUFF. Remember before when I said that the first thing a reader learns is that the Death Card is not negative, despite all the rumours, and it actually means “death” onky reversed? Well, here is your scapegoat ladies and gentleman. This card is the embodimen of the Murphy Law: if it can go worse, it will.

However, the number is reversed. Which means, according to the imagery of most decks, that the card itself is reversed.  The second thing a reader learns is that the meaning of the upright card is the contrary of the reversed one, so, if the Death means means “change”, the Death reversed means “bad change, possibly even death”, and if a card has a general negative meaning, reversed it will have a positive meaning*. Here’s your exception - well also the Devil technically, but it’s not the point now -: La Torre upright means bad stuff and when reversed, it means worse stuff. It’s the black cat of the deck, the card you hope not to turn. 

Summing up: things are looking very promising now but they won’t be for long. All of this wonderful happiness is just to make the wounds in the future hurt much more.  Again: I’m just explaining the meaning of the card, I’d rather not have to write what I’m writing now. And yes, this chapter is shouting “death flag” as much as it could, and unfortunately, the meaning of the card confirms it.

But!

*an example would be this cover featuring Kaneki, Furuta and The Hanged Man, L’impiccato,

… and seeing what the imagery of the card is…

The Hanged Man, Marseille Tarots

I’ll be short and tell you straight away that Kaneki is the positive position now: he’s enduring a harsh path to obtain, as the card says he will, a great reward. While Furuta is putting too much at stake. This a perfect reference, as it fits precisely with where the story is actually going. The card itself has a very beautiful meaning: stay strong, endure, be brave. So fear not: all should be okay, in the end - at least for Kaneki. 

So, yeah. My general intake is that Touka will die, while Kaneki may or may not, but before he does, he will have accomplished exactly what he wanted.

Miraculous of Hosoya Yoshimasa

My purpose for writing this post is to tribute Hosoya Yoshimasa.

Take care for your hiatus and your fans always wait your acting again…

Hosoya Yoshimasa is one of talented seiyuu. He is one of my top three, yet He is never release any single even though he gets appraising for his singing. He was in Unit before (Max Boys, together with Masuda Toshiki), but he never pursuing for singing career like other seiyuu. I read one of interview, when Interviewer asked about Sosuke’s song from Free! Eternal Summer!, He said that he has love – hate relationship with singing. YES!! He is the talented one. But you would be surprise how different when he singing in different characters. He is the one who can fit with the role.

anonymous asked:

Hey, I was planning this book series ( my first one) and then I got a bit discouraged because it's just Game of Thrones with different characters. There are different houses fighting for power in a medieval world, a foreign girl freeing slaves, an all-powerful villain killing everyone, etc. Any suggestions on how to make it... not so similar? Because I already really enjoy the characters and some aspects of the plot.

This is a regular topic of discussion for us here, so luckily we do have several posts that should help reassure you that you’re doing nothing wrong in exploring ideas that are similar to existing ideas. I’m sure you haven’t read all of these, so browse through them for some extra pep talks. 

Will using an overused plot deter readers?

My story’s too similar to something else

My story’s too similar to something else, take 2

Am I plagiarizing?

And for just one more spark of motivation, I cannot reblog this one enough: “Your idea isn’t lame. Own it. Make it yours.” 

Subtract the perceived similarities by adding differences.

This is my additional tip for this time around. If your story has several elements in common with something else, especially something that inspired you, start by listing the differences. If you need to, take it one step further and compare the similarities and differences side-by-side. Your intention should be to make a “differences list” that is longer than your “similarities list.” If you run out of differences in your existing plan, it means you need to create more. 

I think where we struggle is that we approach this problem by thinking that we have to make our story different, which means transforming or changing ideas that we love. And when a writer is excited about something, they shouldn’t change it for the sake of changing it. 

Don’t transform a story that’s similar to another one. Just add to it. Give your story plot elements, characters, magical concepts, species, weapons, technological advances, or anything that the inspiration doesn’t have. This way you aren’t changing what you already love. You’re creating more complexities that will eventually drive your story to become unique. 

Sometimes it’s all about how you approach the problem that leads to the best solution. I don’t know much about Game of Thrones, but if you add in enough differences, you should start to see it evolve into your own story. 

Regardless though, write what you love.

Hiiiiii!! So... could you please, please give me some tips on writing smut? I'm stuck on a fic because whenever I read back on what I already wrote, it feels sooooo stupid and very unsexy lol

hiii! smut-writing, i feel is one of the hardest things to do–a lot of people i know struggle with writing it, to the point that they end up forgoing it altogether. i definitely also have trouble writing smut; i cannot even begin to count the number of times i read my own shit and was like ‘what….what the fuck is this shit’ so you’re definitely not alone there! (sometimes i write it and don’t ever proof-read it because i’m just so done™️ you know? i am a bad example, kids) just attempting to write smut is a good enough start!

i don’t know how good my tips for writing smut would be because i only ever started really writing smut when i entered the 1d fandom (the first time i wrote a full smut scene, i published the story as my first 1d fic) but i will definitely try to give you a list of things i personally like to keep in mind when writing smut.

first, figure out what you like/dislike first. read a bunch of fics, or smut scenes, and find out what you like/dislike. you found something hot in this one scene? great, now try to pinpoint what exactly it was. was it the dynamic? the position? the emotion behind it? writing smut will only be fun and sexy to you if you write what you like and what you think is sexy!

second, i find that focusing on feelings rather than actions is hotter. like, for example, i find the sentence “the heat in louis’ stomach flared when harry backed him up against the wall” rather than “harry backed him up against the wall”. i think a description of feelings adds a layer of sexiness, you know? 

on that note, i think sensory descriptions are incredibly important as well. like take note of everything the character can feel, see, touch, taste, hear…and then describe the ones that are relevant. like in a scenario where they’re having morning sex, you’d maybe focus on the lazy way they’re moving, how their skin is still sleep warm and soft, the quiet gasps so as not to disturb the early morning…you wouldn’t really describe the birds chirping outside the window would you?

another thing i like to remember is to be vague. it’s tempting, i know, to detail everything out, but then it starts sounding methodological. ‘harry kissed louis, then slicked his fingers up, then blaaaah’. sounds like a lab sheet or something. i found, however, that a lot of things are sexier when left up to the reader’s imagination. of course, this doesn’t mean you just go around skipping a bunch of steps in the prep or whatever, because those are important, but. you don’t have to detail where one hand is all the time, you know? readers won’t magically think your character lost a hand. you just have to pick and choose.

also, remember that if you’re writing from one character’s pov, you don’t have to describe everything. humans’ brains can usually only occupy one thought at a time. for example, if harry is eating louis out, louis would be focused on the sensation of that, rather than, you know, maybe harry is jerking himself off while doing that. so you would describe how louis feels getting eaten out, without focusing/giving much attention to what harry is doing. 

this is more of a personal preference than anything, but i also like to make sure there’s a bit of tension when it comes to the foreplay leading to the event, you know? not like, actual fighting and stuff, just a bit of a push and pull between the characters. to establish a charged energy, or like. a description of how one character looks so turned on and is trying to reign it in, until of course he can’t. i personally enjoy that. it makes the actual fucking seem like something well-deserved.

and, there you go! at the risk of sounding like a tutorial, those are my smut-writing tips! if they weren’t helpful………sorry. feel free to like, ask if you’ve got more questions, or if you just wanna chat about writing in general, my ask is always open for that. <3 good luck on your smut nonny!

17.04.17 A word on Kizoku Tantei Ep.1 [Spoiler alert]

May I share my own personal feeling and interpretation on my two favourite scenes in ep.1.

When Takatoku said that Kizoku Tantei’s servants helped him on murder, Gozen’s face turned very serious. I felt that he was very unhappy, if not angry. All along he spoke with very soft tone and with very gentleman manner but after his servants were accused he laughed teasingly and talked to Yamamoto “I was having expectation but unfortunately, it seems that this tantei is just second-class” with a bit hard tone.

At the end of the episode when Takatoku said to Gozen that she didn’t forgive Kizoku Tantei claiming himself as tantei but didn’t do deduction, Gozen said teasingly “Then, what is tantei? A person who cannot solve mystery, is not tantei nei~” and he turned his (teasingly) smiling face to a serious one and left.

I like the acting in these two scenes very much.

I am reading the second novel of the Kizoku Tantei series, Gozen in the original novels, as to me, is with much dignity and elegance but is not obsessed with win or lose. Watching these two scenes, my interpretation is, he was irritated by his servants being insulted.

May I also share a little episode in a story in the novel. A person asked Gozen when he would use his own brilliant brain to solve mystery. Gozen answered “I have been using my brain. Do you understand? My brain is these three people here. They are my possession, so it’s fine to let them do the trivial things such as deduction for me.” Then the person prompted “Then, among them who is the most brilliant?” And Gozen replied softly and gently, “It’s a stupid question. I have no intention to trigger a Troy War. What do you think about this?”

When I read these lines what I felt was that Kizoku Tantei likes his servants and trusts them a lot. In other episodes the servants also expressed absolute respect and trust to Gozen. I felt strong kizuna between them.

You know that feeling, when you are reading a book, and you know that it is going to be a tragedy; you can feel the cold and darkness coming, see the net drawing tight around the characters who live and breathe on the pages. But you are tied to the story as if being dragged behind a carriage and you cannot let go or turn the course aside.

I feel now as if the same is happening, only not to characters on a page but to my own beloved friends and companions. I do not want to sit by while tragedy comes for us. I would turn it aside, only I struggle to discover how that might be done.

I just read the part of Neil Gaiman’s book of how the god’s got their greatest gifts, and it made me love Loki so much more.

I really cannot believe that anyone would think Loki is evil and awful. I can’t believe I was scared of Loki before I began to talk to him, and now read this story. I was grinning the entire time while reading. I have many apologies to owe to Loki. 

“So now you know: that is how the gods got their greatest treasures. It was Loki’s fault. Even Thor’s hammer was Loki’s fault. That was the thing about Loki. You resented him even when you were at your most grateful, and you were grateful to him even when you hated him the most.” 

Thank you for the prompt, @teiranlavellan! It made me super happy that you said this, my Cass doesn’t get much attention <3 and it’s such a cute prompt that it went to the top of my list! I hoped to answer you with the prompt fill that week, but that didn’t work :( Sorry.

I have a modern AU I want to write for these two someday, so this is like a prequel to that I guess?

There was this part that was going to be going through airport security, and this other part where the plane it oversold and they take her ticket, but then the stuff with United happened and I didn’t like it anymore

Belatedly for @dadrunkwriting


Cedric was standing in line at the airport, waiting to check his bag. The line was long, but there were plenty of… assistants? Whatever the term was for the people who check in your bags, so the line was going quickly. Or, at least it did, until some Nevarran woman started holding it up.

“Yes, I know I’ve already checked my bag, I was there. But I forgot to put my firearm into my luggage and I highly doubt security will let me take it to the gate, so I if you could just retrieve my bag—”

“I’m sorry ma’am, but your luggage is already on the plane,” explained the unfortunate attendant, simply trying to do his job.

“It is not on the plane—it went down that conveyor belt not two minutes ago; your service is not so prompt as that. Go back there and look, it’s the bag with the silk handkerchief tied at the top.”

“Ma’am, the conveyor belts go directly to the tarmac. It’s gone.”

“Then what do you suggest I do with my weapon? I can’t very well leave it here!”

The next attendant motioned for Cedric, her face full of apologies on behalf of the commotion. Cedric made sure to wear a friendly grin as he greeted her, handing over the ID and tickets he had ready. He pulled his bag onto the scale, and then had a thought.

He had time, while the employee processed his paperwork, so he quickly opened his suitcase and pulled his carry-on off of his shoulder.  He dumped the contents of his shoulder bag into the larger one, checking all the pockets. He zipped his suitcase back up, standing it in time for it to take its turn on the conveyor belt.  

With a nod and a “Have a good one!” he strode away, towards the loud, armed woman.

“Ma’am—”

Detective. Or Special Agent Pentaghast, if you’d prefer.”

Cedric walked over to the irate woman, now irritated himself. It always rubbed him the wrong way when people were unkind to the staff—as someone from a wealthy family, it was a problem he saw often. And he recognized the name ‘Pentaghast’.

“Here you go, Princess,” he said condescendingly as he deposited his now-empty shoulder bag on the counter in front of her. She turned to him in surprise, and the rest of the words he would have said left his head.

Holy shit, she was gorgeous.

“And just what am I supposed to do with this?”

Right. That. “Pack you gun, check the bag, and move on with your day,” he explained.

“But this is not my bag.”

“It is now.” The man behind the counter looked distressed, and Cedric sighed. He should not be trying to provoke the woman further. “Consider it a donation to the force in a time of need. Just doing my civic duty.”

Officer Pentaghast crossed her arms. “I cannot accept it.”

“Well I’m not taking it back!” he snapped, and stomped off. He had his own plane to catch.

He was sorely tempted to look behind him, so make sure the ridiculous woman wasn’t refusing the solution out of spite, but he resisted the urge.

~~~~~

Cedric made it through security just fine, and was headed for his gate when it occurred to him that all of his in-flight entertainment was now packed away in his checked bag. He saw a small bookstand, and stopped to browse for a bit. In the end, he selected some ridiculous Tethras bodice-ripper. It looked newly published, so hopefully when he was done with it one of his sisters would have room for it in their collection; at least two of his sisters read this series, he was sure.

By the time he boarded the plane he had put the incident with Detective Pentaghast out of his mind (or, at least, tried to—it was hard not to think of a woman like that.) He was one of the last First Class passengers to make his way on, moving at a leisurely pace.

Honestly, he should have expected to see the woman sitting there, in the seat next to his. He double-checked his seat number, just to be sure. Lovely.

She looked even less happy to see him.

He had to squeeze past her to get to his windowseat, unpleasantly aware that his butt was at the same level as her face.

She watched him as he sat and buckled the seatbelt, up until he met her eyes with an arched eyebrow. Her gaze darted away, but returned only a second later. “I should thank you, for before.”

“Yes, you should,” he replied dryly.

“Right.Well, I thank you. It was an effective solution, and generous of you.”

He waved a hand dismissively. “Don’t worry about it—I didn’t do it for you.”

He expected her to take offense to that, but she nodded calmly. “Even so.”

Silence followed, or as much silence as could be expected on a plane gradually filling with people. After nearly a minute she sighed with an irritated huff. “This is awkward, isn’t it.”

It wasn’t a question, but he answered anyway. “It doesn’t have to be.”

“My name is Cassandra.” She twisted in her seat to offer her hand.

He shook it, and wondered if she was purposely gripping his hand painfully hard, or if that was normal for her. “Cedric.”

More silence. She shifted in her seat.

Eventually, she said, “I have to be in court tomorrow, for a hearing. I cannot be late. It was important that I did not miss this flight.”

Maker. She wasn’t going to spend the entire flight trying to redeem herself, was she?

Well, at least she knew she had made a spectacle of herself. “You don’t have to explain. We’re all on this flight for a reason.”

“Yes, but I—” She was interrupted by the flight attendant announcing the safety procedures over the speakers. Cassandra was quiet for a few second afterwards and Cedric thought that that would be the end of it, but as soon as he opened his book she spoke up again. “To be honest with you, Cedric, I was most concerned about my dog. I had not arranged for anyone to feed him tonight, because I was not expecting to be gone so long. It would have been a challenge to find someone, on such short notice.”

He was sorely tempted to point out why she might not have a lot of friends to rely on, but he resisted the urge. “I’m glad your dog will be alright. I’d have hated for him to go hungry.”

She nodded, and the sound of the plane engine revving for takeoff made talking difficult. He turned the page.

As soon as they were in the air she spoke up again. “Is that the new Swords and Shields?”

He sighed immediately. “Really, Princess, we don’t have to talk. I help you, you thanked me; let’s move on.”

Her cheeks flared red as her gaze drifted away, and he worried he’d gone too far. “I was only curious. I am… A fan of the series, myself.”

“Oh.” This time he was the one to shift uncomfortably. “I think it’s new. I’ve never read one of these things before, but I thought I would give it a chance.”

“Oh,” she parroted. “I hope you enjoy it, then. You really should start at the beginning, of course… But the books can stand alone. They can be… Cheesy, perhaps, but they’re worth it.”

He smiled, and relaxed. She did seem genuine, now, not like she was forcing it. “My sisters say the same thing—the two that read the series, anyway.”

“The two? How many do you have?”

“Oh, five and a half? Six?”

Cassandra gave him a queer look, and he laughed. “I have five full-sisters, and a half-sister. All older than me.”

“I cannot even imagine growing up with so many! How did you survive?”

“Oh, I could tell you some stories…” he said, and he did. She laughed, and returned the favor with her own vastly different stories of her older brother. That three hour flight passed far too quickly for his taste.

Doll Experiment.

Original Link By  mtspyte

Over the past few years I’ve read quite a few stories regarding dolls who seemingly come alive and torment the family who owns them. Since the first story I read I’ve been completely fascinated with the phenomenon. I worked through first hand accounts of ‘possessed dolls’ and many theories behind them before I finally decided to do an experiment of my own.

From what I’ve learned the age of the doll isn’t particularly important, its the amount of emotions you pour into it. Treat it like a living being and it invites spirits to take up resident, the theory being that they are jealous of the doll having the attention that they themselves cannot get. Another theory is that the amount of energy and emotion you pour into them creates a 'spirit’ of its own. These beings become violent when they are exposed to excess levels of stress, violence, fear and anger. It seems to be a perfect storm of emotions and energy which provides the spirit enough energy to manifest and attack those who are feeding it the unsavory energies.

My plan was to buy a doll (I decided on an American Girl Rebecca) who had no previous owner. Straight from the factory to reduce the risk of emotional contamination. This was important because I wanted to be the only being it received emotions from. When I received it I unboxed her immediately. I had a crafts room that my boyfriend who is very pediophobic never entered. He was effectively banned from the room because he tended to want to fiddle with the sewing machine and broke it more than once. The doll would be safe from him there.

What are your biggest fan fiction pet peeves

I honestly cannot stand horrible grammar. I’ll live if there’s just a couple punctuation errors (which I’m guilty of) or something like that, but misspelled words and screwed up syntax really bother me to the point that I’ll probably stop reading it, even if the plot was really good. I’ve continued to write my own story with the same plot to satisfy my Wolfstar feels before, just for my pathetic self. Another pet peeve is when the protagonist or anyone else for that matter is OOC. I can’t stand reading about an extroverted Remus or a responsible and school loving Sirius.
