i tagged it for you

All the urban legends came true at once.

Of course, I was six pages deep in a tax audit at the time. Chewing a pen when a rash of mothers with broken backs were rushed to the hospital, courteousy of uncareful feet smashing on cracks. Doctors, unsure at the time, blamed osteoporosis.

It was watched pots that remained cool. Or salt thrown over a shoulder that - for a second - showed a devil’s eye. Or it was the alligators. Don’t get me started on the alligators.

But something was the first whisper of what we’d woken up. Nobody wanted to say it out loud, because it sounded so ridiculous. It was a secret that swelled in our cheeks. Phrases we had always said that went silent.

All the hauntings came true. We had photograpic evidence of spirits. That’s probably what started the mass hysteria.

Some things took longer. Rubbing a statue for luck or breaking a mirror. Delayed response. One bad day turns into a bad month. Then you’re at the local witch place begging for a respite - seven years of bad luck?! - and she’s shaking her head. Nothing to be done.

Oh, the witches. The funny thing is that when people have always called you a witch, they’re surprisingly needy when you turn out to be one. When the world shifted, little towns who avoided one woman for her witchiness were now flocking to her because their legend had made her become one.

Pens mightier than swords. Avoiding groups of certain numbers. When a knife drops, we all hold our breath for the fight. A fork means company will show up, confused how they arrived.

It got better for a moment, for a breath, while we figured out the rules of it. What was a legend and what was myth. What kind of faith was big enough and what was too big. Some legends only effected certain areas. Some only certain people. We sunk money into infrastructure for once to clear up cracks. Stepped over salt in every building. Sold amulets like trinkets. For a second, we almost got our feet under us.

And then it got worse. Sometimes the company you invited was strange, unhuman. You had to wear iron. We had loved our cryptids until they came down from the mountains, worse than we could have predicted. Bowls of milk were on every window sill but most of them rotted.

In the books, we had all read about the end of the old ones. The unspeakable ones, who went off into the hills one day. Who we cannot say the name of. Who did not exist in the land of buses or planes. Who can steal you if they know your name, who can never lie but do a good job of it anyway.

We were not ready. The Folk showed up through the thin veil, and they were already laughing.

And they were just the beginning.

I regret everything.

Stranger Things Superpower AU
  • Dustin Henderson: Shapeshifting

Dustin can shapeshift into anyone or anything, so long as he’s seen them. He really enjoys flying as an eagle, or running as a cheetah, or messing with bullies disguised as an adult. As hard as he tried, however, he can’t turn into a mix of two animals like a pegasus or a mermaid.

  • Lucas Sinclair: Illusion

Not unlike a certain outlaw, Lucas can make anyone see anything he want. What makes him more powerful though, is not only he can make optical illusion, he can also make people hear, smell, taste, and even feel anything, including pain. additionally, he can also make people to not feel anything.

  • Max Mayfield: Teleportation

Max’s power is what can be called a late-bloomer. She doesn’t teleport for the first time until a few months after she moved to Hawkins. Mostly she used her powers to visit her dad in California or take Lucas into impromptu dates around the world. She keeps coming back to the boys though, because (and she’ll never admit it) they are the first ones who made her feel wanted.

👏 the physical embodiment of the movie gravity

This is G-Force! They’re super, duper sweet and very protective of their friends! They’re always willing to put themselves on the front lines to protect those in need. I… don’t have a clever name for their quirk, but it’s that they can pull things/people towards them (or their fingers, more exactly, but whatever) or push them away, using Gravity Powers, or whatever. I was thinking of naming them Grabity but…

Bonus, a lineless version under the cut!

Izuocha Week 2017 (Day 3 + 4 : Quirks & Dorm Life)

Just your everyday soft green tea couple enjoying their free time together~~ 🍵🍀

I miss yesterday’s prompt because I am just sooo tired from college and ended up asleep. So I decided to combine yesterday AND today’s prompt in one!! 😂💦

Everyone is enjoying borusara moments and here I am feeling uncomfortable as hell. I just want them to be kids and do kiddy ninja stuff and have cute moments with their family. I’m sorry but borusara feels too forced to me
