in the realm of the gods

Imagine an AU, where Odin does not get to pick which of his sons get to be King. Pretend, whichever one of them wed’s first, gets first dibs. (Since they will already have a Queen, and be on their way to making an heir.)

Odin arranges for a Princess from (insert realm) to come to Asgard; her sole purpose is to meet Prince Thor; in hopes of being wed. Odin is still trying to give Thor the throne, unknown to both Loki and Thor, in the process. The girl likes Thor; she thinks he’s nice and they hit it off beautifully, until Loki comes home. The moment she sees Loki, she cannot help but be smitten with him, completely forgetting about Thor. Loki starts out trying to get her attention as a game. He thinks it would be funny to make the woman Thor was supposed to marry, fall for him instead. Loki plan backfires and he ends up falling in love with the girl, realizing she was actually very smart and nothing like the typical princess that he had met before. Odin finds out and he is less than pleased, even though technically, it shouldn’t matter. Odin tries everything in his power to separate them, including threatening to harm Loki if she doesn’t leave him and marry Thor instead. Frigga finds out about Odin’s threat and helps them escape to elope, knowing that once they are married, Odin can do nothing to change it and Loki will be King; as he rightfully should.

It was a dark, primal place, three acres of old forest untouched for ten thousand years as the gloomy castle rose around it. It smelled of moist earth and decay. No redwoods grew here. This was a wood of stubborn sentinel trees armored in grey-green needles, of mighty oaks, of ironwoods as old as the realm itself. Here thick black trunks crowded close together while twisted branches wove a dense canopy overhead and misshappen roots wrestled beneath the soil. This was a place of deep silence and brooding shadows, and the gods who lived here had no names.

@rowofstars requested: asoiaf + favourite location

On love: Agape

Ok, first of all, I don’t know any Latin - this translation of the lyrics was done by @littlechubbyyuuri​ that I found here

I’d been looking for the lyrics + translation for quite a while, so I was really happy when I finally found them. I thought it would give me some major insight into Yuri’s character, since lyrics in YoI never seem to be picked at random.

But after reading the translation I was a little … huh? That’s not Yuri. 

So I kept turning it back and forth in my mind until suddenly a thought snuck up on me.

Wasn’t Agape going to be Viktor’s short program? Same as Eros? 

So, what if Agape isn’t about Yuri, but about Viktor?

I’ll show you what I mean in a second - let’s go over the lyrics in hors d’oevre-sized morsels:

Filthy Frank TV Lore Masterpost

I just wanted to take some time out (actually i’m bored) to fully explain the whole ~Filthy Frank~ lore, or at least, the “main” characters and how they weave in and out of the show.

Because, let’s be real, George didn’t even know what the hell was going on for the first two years and the Wikia is a mess.

🌻🌷 Spring Witchcraft 🌹💐

a list of ideas and activities for seasonal and discreet witches, based on what is around to do / use in the springtime. based off my personal experiences 

🍄mushrooms

Often indicators of a fairy ring/realm, and though they shouldn’t be disturbed, they can be portals for fae work.

🍑 infused waters

Not a time for hot drinks, a subtle way to work magic into your day, some suggested recipes with correspondences

🍓wild berries

While it isn’t advised to eat them, they can be used as offerings to fae, gods, or used in spells. just be careful not to pick anything dangerous

☔ rain

Clouds and rain can be used for divination and grounding, but also spells of all kinds. A bit of rainwater is a powerful ingredient in any spell or ritual. 

💐 herb/floral bundles

Herbs are growing, it’s a good time to ready bundles of them to dry for the rest of the year.

🌸 flower crowns

You can make flower crowns according to each flower’s meaning and correspondences, and use their charms. here are some suggestions

🌱new growth

As the season changes over, it’s a good time for rituals and spells for shaking off the old and making way for the new, like this one

anonymous asked:

Hello, I was wondering if you have any recommendations for god AUs? I've just read Selenophile by whydoyouask on ao3 which great (pls read it) but ongoing. I love the idea with the gods though and I'd like to read something similar. Thank you :)

I love this request! Thank you so so much for these!

This absolutely stunning artwork inspired by Dancing Daffodils is created by @gairanelixir​! Check out their blog!


God AU


Dancing Daffodils by grayclouds, Mature, 40k (WIP)
Greek God AU where Yuuri is the god of Eros who falls for Victor, a man secluded/banished from the rest of society. Very sweet, and the mix of Greek mythology and YOI works amazingly well. I’ve rec’d this fic so many times, it’s that good! 

it’s gonna take a miracle by lunaetude, 8k
Chris might be a love deity, but it would probably take a thousand miracles just to get Viktor and Yuuri to confess already, dammit. HAHAHAHA I LOVE THIS FIC

Only Blooms at Night by queen_egotist, Explicit, 34k (WIP)
It has been more than two decades since winter has started. According to legends, only the most beautiful person in the village must be sacrificed to the God of Ice as his bride to appease his anger and end this eternal winter. Great god AU!

Selenophile by whydoyouask, Teen, 11k (WIP)
Victor is a long forgotten moon god. Yuuri is a lone believer. Thumbs up!

Winter Gods by my_name_is_Levi, Gen, 12k (WIP)
The story of a man cursed with Immortality after the gods took his lover from him, damning him to an eternity of meeting his love again and again, loving him and losing him. SO good!

If there’s a burning in your heart, don’t be alarmed by eeveepkmnfan, Teen, 31k (WIP)
When Yuuri first awoke, it was to the sight of snow. Taking it all in, his first thought was, ‘It’s beautiful.’ Omg this fic is amazing!

I have no heart, for you long ago stole it by exile_wrath, Gen, 4k
In which Eros, one of the six gods of love, falls for a mortal who thinks he’s unlovable. Rec’d by a follower!

Equinox by WhereverYouAre36, Teen, 8.2k (WIP)
Yuuri once said that Viktor’s eyes were akin to the arctic—stunning. “Winter suits you,” said the man as he dragged his fingers through his lover’s silver locks. WOW!

seafoam by reallysadfish, Gen, 2k
Some say he stole it. Others say he seduced his way to it. Either way, this is how Yuuri claimed the tide and the Ocean waited for him to come home. LOVE THIS!

To Love like You by IdunAurora, Teen, 4.6k
The story of how Yuuri’s love simultaneously ended his human life and Viktor’s days of loneliness. Stunning one shot!

Raindrops on Roses by UpliftingNightmares, Gen, 2.9k (WIP)
Viktor is a god who’s been waiting for a good reason to visit the realm of mortals and humans. So, when somebody folds just the right number of paper flowers, Viktor is more than happy to meet who has summoned him. But, who he finds is not who he expects. great fic so far, can’t wait for more!

{PART 22} I Won’t Stop You (M) // Jeon Jungkook, Vampire!AU

Originally posted by jengkook

Pairing: Jungkook x Reader

Genre: Vampire!AU, Fantasy, Angst, Smut

Summary; You hear the great history of Vampires as you have never heard it before. But as the door into Jungkook’s world is opened wide for you - many more open in turn. Jungkook finds himself overwhelmed with anger - and that anger turns into something you least expected.

“His love and protection were both her weapon and shield. She didn’t belong or willingly surrender to anyone; anyone that was, except him.”

I update this series every Tuesday evening, 9pm-10pm (UK Time)

Once, mankind accepted a simple truth: that they were not alone in this universe. Some worlds man believed home to their Gods. Others they knew to fear. From around the cold and darkness came the Frost Giants, threatening to plunge the mortal world into a new ice age. But humanity would not face this threat alone. Our armies drove the Frost Giants back into the heart of their own world. The cost was great. In the end, their king fell, and the source of their power was taken from them. With the last great war ended, we withdrew from the other worlds and returned home at the Realm Eternal, Asgard. And here we remain as the beacon of hope, shining out across the stars. And though we have fallen into man’s myths and legends, it was Asgard and its warriors that brought peace to the universe.

the realm. do you know what the realm is? it’s the thousand blades of aegon’s enemies, a story we agree to tell each other over and over, until we forget that it’s a lie. but what do we have left, once we abandon the lie? chaos? a gaping pit waiting to swallow us all. chaos isn’t a pit. chaos is a ladder. many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. the fall breaks them. and some, are given a chance to climb. they refuse, they cling to the realm or the gods or love. illusions. only the ladder is real. the climb is all there is.

"Humans are weird" - Imagination

One of those “humans are weird” things but what would imagination - like almost boundless limitless imagination - look like to aliens?

They’re baffled by the millions of fictional universes we’ve created - the fact that people can live with a whole imagined universe in their head with characters that are practically real people if they weren’t imaginary - omg, imaginary friends! What would that appear like?

Lord, but what would aliens think of the concept of ‘day dreaming’ - like suddenly their friends seem to not be there and when nudged only responds with a shrug and a smile “sorry I was miles away” - that we can seemingly interact as if we lived there in those imagined universes ourselves.

That’s not even getting into what kinds of fictional universes people have created - some truly remarkable stories and realms of fantasy or sci fi - God, what about Lovecraft, probably be even more horrifying?
