i'm off to enjoy the sun!

modern!alina things/headcanons (that may or may not include other characters):

- yellow leggings, yellow nailpolish, a speck of gold in the inner corner of her eyes, yellow doc martens/boots, a faux leather jacket
- cuts her hair short having it long for actual literal centuries
- so basically rocks a pixie cut and always has one bright streak on either side - it could be cobalt blue or royal purple or fiery red, either way it’s always there to show the little rebel in her
- watches sitcoms and thoroughly enjoys light, good-spirited comedies (esp older ones since you know, she’s practically ancient)
- did i mention that yes, she has her powers :)))) and they never went away in the first place
- meets inej!! is friends with inej!! probably helps inej at the social service center!!
- ACTIVELY helps people in need even if it’s just by providing them with food and clothes
- goes to marches and is VERY passionate about social justice
- goes on vacation with genya at least once a month (it doesn’t have to be somewhere exotic, sometimes it’s just a quick trip to the countryside)
- gorges on blini and pastries and blesses nina up and down for introducing her to this super cute bakery two blocks down where the walls are painted bright yellow and there are star stickers on the ceiling
- probably works as an art teacher (she also probably prefers to teach young kids bc high school gives her anxiety sometimes although she has a degree/certificate for both)
- visits nikolai often despite him running a successful business (sailing business?? boating business?? idk what’s the proper term but you get the idea) and being one Very Busy (and wanted) Man
- dandelions tucked behind her ear and headbands in fun, bright colours
- can’t wear heels if her life depended on it?? so she sticks to flats and simple sneakers but that’s just part of her style
- it takes her a few years to stop looking over her shoulder to see if the shadows move but when she does, she actually loves to just sit there in the dark at night and let her mind drift
- keeps in touch with all her grisha friends but is closest to zoya, genya and tamar
- adopts a homeless black kitten and calls her volcra so many times it eventually becomes her official name? which leads to zoya scoffing and nikolai laughing like, “the scariest volcra i’ve ever seen, hell hath no whiskers”
- STILL doesn’t like herring or any type of sea food for that matter
- makes an exception for sushi but mostly bc she enjoys watching zoya eat it bc she tends to make a soy sauce mess out of herself (alina’s surprisingly good with chopsticks though)
- her style is minimalistic and her entire wardrobe is super vibrant and chic (and maybe a little quirky)
- takes a sunbath every morning
- wears a sun pendant 24/7 like. literally never takes it off
- you know the mona lisa smile? alina’s developed a sun summoner smile and it makes you wonder what she’s hiding
- but also makes you fall in love in (or under) 0.2 seconds

epitaph is watching rain slowly start to patter down a windowsill and the sight of grey clouds rolling in from the horizon. it’s the darkest blue of ocean starting to foam with the implied intent to destroy, but only until the tidelines. it’s the smell of old books, slowly flipping through their pages while hearing the thunder gently start to rumble and losing yourself in words you’ve never read. it’s stepping on wet leaves with boots and pulling your hood up if the drizzles get a little harsh. it’s stealing kisses and intertwining hands and sitting on the wet ground, and the feeling that nothing matters other than the moment you’re in. it’s the gentle rain and the little giggles and thinking about how the thunder sounds in the exact same time as your heartbeat. it’s watching the sunlight glint off a wet tree and the thought of how vibrant the green appears. it’s the smell of the earth after it’s rained and the calm finality of the waves. it’s how you always eventually end up wrapped in blankets, looking at the way the sun still shines through the watercolour grey sky and how everything is so alive even in the rain.

The Signs as Lana Del Rey lyrics - long version & astrological explanation
  • Aries: Maybe I like this roller coaster, maybe it keeps me high, maybe the speed it brings me closer, I could sparkle up your eye // Movement, speed, the thrill of the rush
  • Taurus: He likes to watch me in the glass room, bathroom, Chateau Marmont, slipping on my red dress, putting on my makeup. Glass film, perfume, cognac, lilac fumes: he says it feels like heaven to him // Appealing to the senses, romantic subtleties, the finest things in life
  • Gemini: I drive fast, wind in my hair, I push you to the limits 'cause I just don't care, you ask me where I been? I've been everywhere, now I don't wanna be nowhere but here // Dynamism, challenging personality, charismatic experiences
  • Cancer: In the land of Gods and Monsters, I was an Angel living in the garden of evil, screwed up, scared, doing anything that I needed, shining like a fiery beacon // "The Outsider" trying to fit in, doing their best
  • Leo: The power of youth is on my mind: sunsets, small town, I'm out of time. Will you still love me when I shine from words but not from beauty? // The need to love and be loved intensely & completely
  • Virgo: Lost but now I am found, I can see that once I was blind, I was so confused as a little child, tried to take what I could get, scared that I couldn't find all the answers // The desperate need to know and control everything
  • Libra: I got my red dress on tonight, dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight. Done my hair up real big beauty queen style, high heels off, I'm feeling alive // Just enjoying the moment, princess-style, alluring and dazzling
  • Scorpio: I'm feeling electric tonight: cruising down the coast going 'bout 99. Got my bad baby by my heavenly side, I know if I go, I'll die happy tonight // Feeling powerful, defying the law, the acceptance of death as something natural and the power of love
  • Sagittarius: I know that I'm a mess with my long hair and my sun tan, short dress, bare feet, I don't care what they say about me // "I woke up like this" and being blunt about it
  • Capricorn: He said to "be cool" but I'm already coolest, I said to “get real, don't you know who you're dealing with? Um, do you think you'll buy me lots of diamonds?” // Self-assured attitude, love for luxury
  • Aquarius: We had nothing to lose, nothing to gain, nothing we desired anymore, except to make our lives into a work of art // Love for freedom and art, the need to make a change, create something meaningful
  • Pisces: I was always an unusual girl, my mother told me I had a chameleon soul, no moral compass pointing due north, no fixed personality... Just an inner indecisiveness that was as wide and as wavering as the ocean // Adaptability, ever changing personality, emotional connection with the sea

Last night I procrastinated from storyboarding and marking exam papers and ended up making a bunch of animated Bill gif. Some are crappy and others I actually liked. Enjoy using him for whatever you guys want!

Apologies for the bad timing on certain frames of the gif images…. and I think the transparent ones were horribly rendered.

EDIT: AYYYYY~ WHAT DO YOU KNOW? I FIXED 3 OF THE CRAPPY TRANSPARENT GIF AND I HAVE 5 MINUTES TO SPARE BEFORE RUNNING OFF TO WORK! *flings self into the sun*

I'm your son {closed roleplay with Our-honor-unstatianed

It had been a quite day so far in the newly rebuilt city of Winterhold. There were no snow storms and for brief moments the sun would come out to warm the faces of the towns people, even the collages students were taking time off from studying and rebuilding the town to enjoy the small market.

However the household of Luc and Llaala was about to change just a little bit.

As Luc was sitting at the fire reading a book a small knock was heard at the door “I’ll get it.” He called standing up and walking. Over to the door and opened it to see a small child.
