in the way saint

anonymous asked:

Ok, so far Hades is the only one from the original Olympian Gods known to NOT TRY AND FLUGGEL ANYONE OVER! Like, he was fair and just in his treatment of mortals. He didn't mess people up for flits and giggles. So, yes. He is a dalucking saint in my book.

wow, no offense but the way u censored everything was pretty funny

dude, i cant get over the image of merle highchurch, deadbeat dad & insecure burn-out cleric, vanishing in a beam of light as his congregation sang a hymn in perfect, beautiful harmony. and right after that the church must’ve walked outside and seen that the hunger disappeared with him, that they were saved

like… dude came down from the sky, protected his followers from the end of the world, then disappeared, taking with him the beast that swallows galaxies. there is no way he didn’t become some sort of saint or demi-god to those people. he’s mushroom jesus now. if they ever go back to that planet there’s gonna be statues of merle all over and he’ll be INSUFFERABLY SMUG about it

the ship of dreams by casscaixn, laurxnts, Explicit, 50k (WIP)
Yuuri and Victor board the Titanic having never crossed paths—Yuuri had won his tickets in a last-minute game of cards, Victor had boarded as the first-class son of a business tycoon, destined to inherit his father’s millions. The last thing they expect is to be caught up in each others’ lives, and to become desperately entangled in a love affair that threatens to ruin them both.

The Start Of Life by livixbobbiex, Explicit, 20k
After winning a bet, Yuuri had been overjoyed that he’d managed to avoid having a large, celebrity style wedding, in exchange for allowing Viktor to plan and have full control over their honeymoon. Yuuri had been mentally preparing himself for flamboyant luxury, only to land up in a ‘middle of nowhere’ town in provincial Russia.

Viktor smiled at the woman even though he could feel his heart cracking into a million pieces.  “You have absolutely adorable children.” / “Yeah, Yuuri, why didn’t you tell us you had kids?” Chris asked while taking a selfie with the three. / “WHAT?!”

The World Opened With You by DiAnna44, Teen, 10k
Despite the smiles famous violinist Victor Nikiforov puts on for the world, he’s been in a slump for almost two years, and no longer views himself as worthy of his fame. When he’s paired up to play a duet with esteemed pianist Yuuri Katsuki, he finds inspiration once again, and maybe even something more.

Yuuri!!! on Floor by thehandsingsweapon, Not Rated, 67k
The gymnastics edition, in which Viktor is still a skater because he’s too pretty on ice and I couldn’t take it away from him. A story about how sometimes love comes slow and soft, and how hearts get bigger when they break.

Chasing Viktor by TheMonsterWhoWentEast, Teen, 79k (WIP)
Soulmates and soul marks were private, intimate things. He’s heard about them in passing, from the hushed voices of his parents, the drunken slurring of his older sister and ballet teacher, and the quiet, but sweet whispers of his friends from the rink. The day Yuuri Katsuki finds his soul mark, he was nursing a throbbing headache and a terrible hangover.

November’s Secret by LanaBerry, Mature, 18k (WIP)
Overwhelmed with anxiety and his fear of failing, Yuuri faces the issue of if he should continue skating. His best friend, Yuko, proposes a solution - if no one knows it’s you, then it’s less embarrassing, right? Yuuri begins to create a completely new disguise and persona. But it works a little too well. Before he knows it, Yuuri has become the biggest mystery of the skating world and everyone wants to know who he is. Especially Viktor Nikiforov, the idol he’s been loosely basing his new persona on for years.

Exceeding Expectations by asocialfauxpas (fuzzytomato), Explicit, 8.3k
Sighing, Yuuri took off his glasses and set them on the nightstand before he switched off the light. Somehow, he was Japan’s figure skating champion, GPF silver medalist, Viktor Nikiforov’s live-in fiancé, and still a virgin.

In Our Dreams by phoenixwaller, Explicit, 44k (WIP)

Victor Nikiforov, the Junior World Figure Skating Gold Medalist, has a secret skill. He has the ability to dreamwalk; to visit the minds of others while his body sleeps. The evening after his Junior Worlds exhibition performance he finds himself in the mind of a young Japanese skater, Yuri Katsuki. He feels the boy’s awe at watching the performance, and is overwhelmed at Yuri’s desire to skate against the Russian one day.

Beautiful by saltycvs, Explicit, 8.9k (WIP)
At 23 years old, Yuuri Katsuki is still a virgin, lives with his best friend Phitchit, and eats 2 minute ramen noodles on a daily. He has a Russian tutor, Viktor, who’s way too hot for his own good. They have one hour lessons every Thursday. Here’s the catch: it’s all for Yuuri’s gay erotica novel because he’s a trashy romance writer.

In desperate need of a new job and a new apartment, recently unemployed baker Yuuri Katsuki moves to a part of the city he doesn’t know much about and gets a position in a family friend’s bakery he’s never been to. But the people there are kind of weird, and the bakery gets some strange orders. At least one of his neighbors is nice. Probably not human, and has weird eating habits, but nice.

“Have you any idea at all why you have an obsession with this kind of woman?” (in regards to the icy Hitchcock blondes in most of his films)

“I’m only obsessed because I don’t believe in stamping the woman with the word ‘sex’ all over her. I think it should be discovered in the course of our getting acquainted with her. It’s more interesting for this thing to be not apparent. In other words we don’t have to have the sex hanging round her neck like baubles.” - Alfred Hitchcock

this is Le Mont Saint Michel, in Normandie, France. it’s also where Beauxbatons Academy of Magic is located. and listen i KNOW Beauxbatons is supposed to be in the Pyrenees but it’s only rumored to be so i will take this hc to the grave

ok now that this is out of the way hear me out 

this is le mont saint michel, and depending on the tide it’s either an island or accessible by foot

the witches arrived in 1265 and never left because come on, even the location screams magic it would be a shame not to take advantage of it. even the wizarding world has aesthetic needs to fulfill.

there are some muggles on the island, but most of them have been there forever and their parents before them, and having lived through WW2 and the invention of television,  they can think of weirder things than magic. Also they have other shit to do than go and tell everyone about beauxbatons and plus they quite like those wizards, they’re polite and make delicious drinks so everyone is happy to mind their own business. 

and this pals, is Beauxbatons Academy of Magic : 

the architecture is famous all over the world and has therefore attracted many tourists over the years so the academy has decided to open some parts of the castle to the public. 

but do not worry they’ve thought this through! a powerful glamour has been cast over the whole place for it to look to the muggles like they’re visiting an abbey. 

for example, this is a muggle photo of a statue of Nicolas Flamel, famous alumnus of Beauxbatons Academy. 

and if you’re still not convinced here are a couple of photos proving that this place is definitely magical

Bonus : this is La Mère Poulard, the best restaurant on the island. Anne Boutiaut, who owns the place, is a 166 yo witch and to this day, she still hasn’t disclosed to recipe to her famous omelet. the muggles think she’s just in very good shape for her age. 

you can also see witches and wizards of all ages, unwinding with a butterbear after a long day, looking fondly at the oblivious muggles 

it’s a happy place 

anonymous asked:

A new MM headcanon, yay! <3 I hope requests are still open! If not, please forgive me. ^^ Can I please ask for some HC for RFA + Saeran +V for MC feeling exhausted, and falling asleep for the first time on their laps or while cuddling? Thank youuu~ ^^

Requests are definitely still open! <3

YOOSUNG:

  • The two of you are cuddling on the couch, a typical weekday night
  • But it’s been a long day and you are WIPED
  • You’re also a pretty quiet sleeper, though, so he doesn’t notice that you’ve dozed off
  • Until he tries to get up for a glass of water
  • You stir on top of him and mumble something incoherently
  • Oh no, she’s sleeping–
  • He tries again to leave, but you mumble again and pull your arms tighter around him
  • RIP YOOSUNG
  • don’t forget, you’re here forever

ZEN:

  • Zen’s sitting on the couch watching TV, and you come into the room with a can of beer for him
  • Without even thinking about it, you hand him the beer and lie down across his lap
  • He stiffens immediately but you don’t notice
  • Because you’re asleep within moments of planting yourself there
  • “Babe… babe no….”
  • He’s got a vicegrip on that beer can as he stares at the TV, trying hard not to think about The Beast™ or the fact that your head is in his lap
  • “Shit- not now, boner
  • You sleepily complain, but he manages to shift you away from his raging hard-on
  • just take a cold, cold shower, hyun
  • Poor man feels like an absolute wolf

JAEHEE:

  • You two have spent many nights together watching Zen’s DVDs
  • So, really, this had to happen at some point
  • She’s not flustered or anything
  • But she likes watching you sleep with your head in her lap
  • Your face is so serene that it even alleviates some of her own stress
  • She runs her fingers through your hair, gently caressing and massaging your scalp
  • She eventually turns off the DVD
  • She’s found a new stress reliever

JUMIN:

  • You usually spend your evenings together on the couch, talking about your days over a glass of wine
  • You had had a busy day, and Jumin was listening patiently as you laid your head in his lap, empty wine glass on the ground
  • He threaded his hands through your hair as you talked
  • But he noticed that your speech was getting slower, and your eyelids kept drooping
  • “And then… And then he asked me if… if I had the paperwork, and I was like… …. …no, I gave it… I gave it to you…”
  • “Mhmm.”
  • You eventually trailed off into silence, and Jumin looked down to find you sleeping
  • With the patience of a saint he works his way out from under you without waking you up
  • And puts a blanket over you
  • And the softest pillow under your head
  • He brings a blanket for himself and sleeps on the floor
  • so you’d better be prepared for the soreness complaints in the morning

707:

  • You guys are a cuddly couple, so it’s not much of a surprise when you fall asleep on top of him
  • At first Saeyoung does a good job of staying still for you
  • But it reaches a point where he can’t stand it 
  • “Baby, do I have permission to leave?”
  • He doesn’t expect you to answer
  • So when a mumbled “NO” is your response, whether to him or to something in your dream,
  • he is SHOOK
  • “My princess has spoken! Who am I but a humble slave to your will!”
  • His theatrics were wasted, however, because you really were sleeping
  • “No seriously baby please, I need to pee”
  • He eventually picks you up and deposits you on the bed
  • But comes back to keep spooning you once he’s done with his business

SAERAN:

  • *deep breath* this boi
  • You guys aren’t really cuddly. At all.
  • So the first shock is when you lie down in his lap
  • The second shock is when you don’t respond to him saying your name
  • And your deep, steady breaths tell him that you’re fast asleep
  • Poor boy really doesn’t know what to do
  • So he stays there
  • stiff as a board
  • for as long as he needs to
  • on a sadder note he’s probably really used to denying his own personal needs; i.e, having to pee or eat or drink so he will probably literally stay there until you wake up :’((

V:

  • Like with Saeyoung, you two cuddle a lot
  • But this time he’s so warm
  • And the calming tea is working its way through your system
  • And you find yourself dozing off
  • V is content to let you stay there, keeping his arms wrapped around you
  • Rubbing up and down your arms slowly
  • Pressing lazy kisses to your forehead
  • And all gentle enough to avoid waking you
  • as a film person myself let me tell you
  • PHOTOGRAPHERS ARE PATIENT PEOPLE

oh boi this really brought out my inner fluff monster

“Peasants love their Saints. They hunger for the miraculous. And yet they do not love the Grisha. Why do you think that is?”
“I hadn’t thought about it,” I said. I opened the book. Someone had written my name inside the cover. I flipped a few pages. Sankt Petyr of Brevno. Sankt Ilya in Chains. Sankta Lizabeta. Each chapter began with a full-page illustration, beautifully rendered in brightly colored inks.
“I think it is because the Grisha do not suffer the way the Saints suffer, the way the people suffer.”

Updates to look out for: *updated*

14. Ore to Joushi no Kakushikoto Kurui Naku no wa Boku no Ban

Comment: Ah, another great series has been completed. Anyway, BOIZ THERE ‘GON BE A SEQUEL FOR Kurui Naku!!!! UTOU NEEDS A MAN FOR HIMSELF.

15. Mitsumei Youchi na Koi wo Doushiyo

Comment: I’m having a hard time accepting that Mitsumei has been completed. It had a promising start but, the hype gradually lowered as it neared the end. I thought there would be more drama to it so I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t disappointed.

16. Nibiiro Musica

17. Ore no Kaikata Shikarikata

18. Life Senjou no Bokura

Comment: Wow, just wow. Now, only one chapter is out for this series but I can tell you as early as now that this is going to be one heck of a story. No, there aren’t any explosions, omegaverse, drama (YET please spare me), and societal struggles but, I think that what this promises to bring to the table is its lightness and realism. It’s just about boys who’re having the time of their lives by being boys. And I think that this particular series can appeal to those who don’t read Yaoi as they’re bound to relate to it somehow.

That was long.

19. Seifuku wo Matoeba, Umaku Uso ga Tsuketa no ni

What this is: Pilots boiiii

Comment: God damn. Kusabi Keri, you genius! What can I say? Kusabi Keri is at it again with her 10/10 Art and who better to scanlate it? Exiled Rebels Scans! Friends, if you don’t know who they are, they’re like a sub-unit of omegaverseaddicted who scanlate non-omegaverse series (Read: Angels).

20. Eto Irokoi Zoushi 

What this is: Onii-chan and homie can be possessed by the zodiac animals in their care. Onii-chan takes care of the 12 as well as other animals while homie is the shrine maiden of the cat. But did they bang doe?

21. Batsu Game *is by Conro like Family Affair

What this is: Kouhai kisses senpai because of a dare but senpai later rides kouhai and takes a picture of his o-face to black mail him. Punishment games are so fun~

22. Akai Ito no Shikkou Yuuyo

What this is: Red string of fate seer’s red string finally gets attached to someone. Spoiler: it’s a dude.

23. Kore ga Koi na Wake ga Nai

Comment: Susuki Sonoichi is back it again with KKWN which is a sequel to Kore wa Koi ni Fukumaremasuka?. I’m not really sure what I feel about senpai getting his own story ‘cause he was a huge dick in the parent story that I never wished for him to be happy (’cause I usually wish side gays happiness). However, when I see him legit hurt when confronted with the harsh reality of Tsukasa and Iori’s relationship, I felt my heart legit clench. His love for Iori wasn’t an excuse for him being such a dick to him but I guess he deserves happiness too.

24. Dakaretai Otoko Ichii Ni Odosarete Imasu

Comment: It would be unfair if I didn’t put this up ‘cause I’ve legit been following this series ever since Junta-kun’s POVs started. I have to admit that I sort of nikushimied, if that’s a word then, arigathanks gozaimuch, the series because the second part of the drama cd hurt me really bad #justiceforGiulio but yeah, the series have been showing promise as of late and I highly recommend reading it.

Completed:

1. Kataomoi to Parade

Comment: It’s been officially declared as COMPLETE. I wanna cry, tho. I mean, they got to bang in the end but I wanted senpai to make love to him with more passion than that ‘cause a little jealousy got in the way.

2. Ano ko to Juliet

Comment: HA.HA.HA.HA. I’m not a saint but, I’m sure there are still a lot of things in this world that I don’t deserve and chapter 5 is one of them.
