i'll figure this whole thing out

But he’s my whole world!“ she says, sobbing.

Now, her mom didn’t usually say much. She believed in her daughter figuring out things on her own, but these were words that she couldn’t ignore.

"Don’t ever say that about anyone again. Not even me.”

And that was all she said, but it was enough.

Heartstrung - Prologue

A/N: This was inspired by my lovely, @msmanga14​ who has been freaking out as I go through the plot to this upcoming fic of mine. I figure that hey, maybe people would like a preview. This is my first Soulmate AU.

Fandom: Fairy Tail
Pairing: NaLu
Rating: M - sexual content in future chapters

Summary: It’s been said that wherever you have/had a birthmark, is how you died in your past life. A scar that marks the fatal wound that killed you so you could be reborn again. It is also said that when/if you meet the person who killed you, you remember your past life and death and Lucy isn’t a big fan of the pink-haired man she’s run into. Soulmate AU. NaLu.

There was a pattern that doctors found when they’d studied the correlation between people who did and didn’t have birthmarks, soulmates, and memory recovery. It didn’t happen often, but it happened enough that there were three rules:

1) Your birthmark marks the location of a fatal wound inflicted by the hand of another.
2) If you run into the person who effectively ended your most recent past life, you will recover the memories of said life and your death.
3) For your souls to make amends, in this life you will be mates.

And unfortunately, this was not the kind of soulmate you could escape from.

On multiple past occasions where soulmates were too overwhelmed and hurt by their previous lives to forgive their attackers, they’d done their best to walk away. They’d moved halfway across the country, quit their job and cut all communication, and if the memories were too vivid, sometimes they would try to kill themselves.

But the world worked in cruel ways.

They’d move halfway across the country only to have to move back and find themselves right next to their soulmate. A new job would put them in the same area as—if not direct contact with—their soulmate. The gun would freeze up and wouldn’t fire, the pills they’d taken were immediately rejected by their body or their metabolism would spike to filter the drugs.

There was no escaping fate.

And when Lucy learned about birthmarks and soulmates, she prayed she would never meet hers.

I’m super SUPER hyped for The new Netflix series ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ coming out this Friday (because those books OWNED ME in Elementary school and the movie was good but didn’t give me enough)

And so, I figure before I binge watch the whole thing this weekend and since this is basically become the hub for ITH AUs, I invite you to consider: ITH Lemony Snicket AU starring Usnavi, Sonny, and Chip as the Baudelaire orphans!!

  • Basically same beginning, parents die in tragic fire and they’re taken to some other evil relative. I’m ALL FOR the De la Vegas having a huge-ass family with like a bajillion distant relatives so our Count Olaf counterpart can be anyone (I’ve considered Sonny’s dad as a candidate but we’ll see)
  • Usnavi putting his hat on when he’s thinking of a plan, like Violet’s ribbon for inventing, Sonny being good at remembering facts he learned like Klaus and Chip being good at biting like Sunny XD
  • Sonny and Usnavi both being able to fluently understand Chip through his barks and howls (so basically Chip can shit-talk anyone and Usnavi and Sonny will silently snicker about it)
  • But really, just imagine ALL the times Usnavi and Sonny would have to save one another (since fate in this series doesn’t give these poor kids a fucking break)
  • Sonny being locked in a cage to force Usnavi to sign over their family fortune to the antagonist
  • Usnavi being hypnotized when they’re working at the lumber mill
  • Usnavi sacrificing himself to let Sonny and Chip escape and he’s taken to a demented hospital (plus, if this universe can allow a baby to disguise herself as a doctor and have no one bat an eye, you can BET that Chip could disguise himself as a doctor and no one would care)
  • Sonny being separated from Usnavi and Chip when the bad guy sabotages their cart, leaving those two to die while taking Sonny away
  • Both of them having to support one another through these ridiculous but tough times, along with losing SO MANY friends and family along the way
  • Not to mention Chip being best buds with the Incredibly Deadly Viper and constantly pulling both Usnavi and Sonny’s asses out of the fire
  • And the rest of the barrio can be met along the series; Nina and Lincoln Rosario are the Quagmire kids; no question, and we can slip in all the other pairings as well (we got thirteen books to work with, let’s make the most of 'em!)

So? Tell me what you think! 

((oops sorry I have a problem))

#sexlaughterhonesty week

So, last summer we did THIS, a week of silly sex positivity, started in response to a cranky anon who didn’t like @anotherdayforchaosfay‘s rather adorably honest smut Solas’s Failings.

We ended up having some wonderfully honest conversations about sex around these parts, and no small number of honest, realistic, silly smut fics were spawned. Masterlist here.

Quite a few folks were interested, but I sorta started the whole thing without any notice so there were also quite a few who didn’t get to participate. As the anniversary of #sexlaughterhonesty week should fall between novels for me, I thought that if there is interest, I would use my break to host another week this year. I’m thinking mid July so everyone would have plenty of time to prepare.

Feel free to reblog this, reply to this, or personal message me if you’re interested or know folks who might be interested. As with last year, fandom does not matter, just the usual rules of respect and consent apply. (if you have a question, please feel free to ask. Anon is on, but I’m also 100% okay with folks chatting me.)

Hey guys!  So I see that there’s a new IM feature on Tumblr, which would have been super cool back when I was on Tumblr 24/7 but whatever.  So I just thought I’d make a little post letting you guys know that you’re welcome to IM me if you ever have a quick question or message!  

For example, if you just wanted to ask where the ‘next’ button is or say that you love the blog, but you don’t want to send in an ask and make it a whole formal thing, you can shoot me an IM and I’ll answer real quick.

You can also IM if you just want to talk.  If I’m on Tumblr, there’s a 99% chance that I’m queuing up quotes, but I’ll have time to say hey in between.

I promise I’ll be getting to more asks soon, just bear with me!
