it's past not passed

in other, more positive news - i wrote 6k words tonight on my novel and it’s uuuurggggh c o m i n g t o g e t h e r at last…. very slowly but it IS and i’m actually kind of proud of myself which! I haven’t felt in a long time

Throwback to the 2nd ever MM fanart I did with this…because I find it highly relevant right now.

The amulet of Daylight and its armor and sword were, presumably, created together since the amulet summons the armor and sword to appear, correct? You can’t get the armor and sword without first using the amulet. By all accounts, from what we’ve seen, it shouldn’t be possible then for the amulet and armor to be capable of separating when the armor is in use. The amulet was designed to fit into the armor’s breastplate. That’s where it belongs.

until Jim inserts the last Triumbric Stone and summons Eclipse.

And Jim doesn’t rip the amulet out either, right? The amulet just doesn’t insert itself into the armor after the transformation like it normally does. Instead, it falls back into Jim’s hand and once the bridge is opened Jim lets it hit the ground behind him and the amulet doesn’t make to go after him. Almost like the amulet and armor aren’t compatible with each other anymore.

Which of course makes sense, since the amulet was crafted to house Daylight. You could argue it was meant to house Eclipse too, since Merlin was also responsible for that power’s creation, but the dude seemed pretty set on hiding Eclipse from everyone forever. Maybe he realized it was bad news when he was experimenting with it, for the amulet or the wielder. If Daylight is Merlin’s glory maybe Eclipse is his mistake. Or maybe Daylight and Eclipse are just two opposing forces that can’t coexist in the amulet.

I lean towards the former because of the amulet’s reluctance to bond to the Eclipse armor even with the Triumbic Stones in place. It’s like the connection between the amulet and armor has been severed, as if the amulet has been rewired in a sense by the addition of the Stones, as if the amulet is rejecting bonding to Eclipse. If Eclipse was meant to be there, the amulet and armor would have automatically bonded together as normal. It would’ve been a smooth transition, natural. It wasn’t.

This is just one of many red flags that speak of ill fortune for Jim and the amulet because of Eclipse. Toby is the first to point out that the “evil poem” about Eclipse makes him uneasy. The poem itself pretty much states that you can’t be “worthy” of the amulet to prevail with Eclipse, which sounds like Jim might lose what made him worthy of Daylight while wielding Eclipse. It’s literally powered by Gunmar. Its red and black like Bular, like the infamous “Dark Side” in Star Wars…

Its use, under the circumstances, goes against Jim’s duty as a Trollhunter as well. Protection. Keeping the peace. The Greater Good. Kanjigar stresses this to Jim when Jim wants to save Claire’s brother at the risk of opening the bridge. In the finale when Jim chooses to use Eclipse over Daylight, he’s taking protection to the personal extreme. He’s not keeping the peace by picking a fight with Gunmar. And he’s not thinking about the Greater Good. He’s thinking about Aaarrrghhh!’s loss. He’s thinking about his mother’s brush with death. He’s thinking about Blinky and the friends Gunmar has threatened to take away from him.

This is all dangerous. Its the reason Kanjigar initially opposed Jim working with others, because he was gonna get his friends killed or his friends were gonna get him killed. That’s not to say that the Trollhunter doctrine isn’t without flaws however, as Kanjigar admits in the end that Jim’s friends have been a great help to him. It hints that maybe, if Eclipse is supposed to be the opposite of Daylight, some good can come from it where Daylight and the Trollhunter doctrine fail per se. I don’t think Daylight and Eclipse are cut and dry Good and Bad. But I do think Eclipse is more dangerous, is capable of more readily causing bad if not controlled.

And I do think, no matter what happens, its going to leave Jim and the amulet changed, as evidenced already by the amulet’s seemingly severed connection with its armor. I do think, no matter what happens, the amulet, like Jim, is never again going to quite fit where it used to belong.

Even if the Triumbric Stones can be removed if need be, I don’t think its going to totally undo what’s been done, not after we saw Jim “leveling up” with new weapons after gaining each Stone, not if Eclipse has a big impact on the story. The writers wouldn’t be so quick to take that away. Jim will probably have to live with the consequences of his decisions, whether he likes it or not.

Personally I’d like to see Eclipse initially damaging Jim and the amulet, but when he returns home he finds the Triumbric Stones can’t be easily removed (if removed at all) from the amulet so he’s kinda stuck with Eclipse along with Daylight. He has to learn to master both powers, at a great reluctance at first because he’s experienced how bad Eclipse can be firsthand and isn’t eager to repeat all that. But this eventually levels out into an easy balance of the two forces. Sorta like, Jim has to live with his bad choices, but he’s gonna try to make the best out of a bad situation.

#6 - Wand of Bones

Wonderous Item, Very Rare (Spellcaster Attunement Required)

This wand was crafted by moon druids in honer of the great beasts of nature. The core is made of a dryad sapling grown from the fertile remains of a large beast. The bones grow around the sprout and meld into it.

This wand has 6 charges and recharge 1d4+1 every dawn.

When cast on a creature that the caster can see within 60 feet, the caster may cause them to grow horns, fangs, nails or a shell for up to 1 hour, or until the caster choose to end it. An unwilling creature must make a Wisdom save agains the DC 10 + the caster’s wisdom modifier. The effect can be cast on on multiple creatures at once, but a creature may only have one effect on it at once. A creature can still grow parts even if they are wearing armour such as gloves or helmets. The horns and claws will grow around our out of the armour as if it were part of the body, yet will leave no holes. If the wand reaches 0 charges, it crumbles to dust.

The effects of the spell is as follows:

Horns

The horns can take the shape of a ram, deer, bull, etc.

The creature can perform a charge attack as an action. The creature must move their full movement speed in the direction of their choosing. If they come into contact with another creature or object, they stop. A creature hit by this attack must make a DEX save of DC 10 plus 1 for every 10 feet they traveled rounded down, including any move action they already took that was in the same direction as their charge (move 30 feet west then charge attack 30 west will result in 60 full feet). On a pass, the attacker runs past its target. On a fail, the creature takes 1d6 piercing or bludgeoning damage (depending on the type of horn) for every 10 feet they traveled in one direction rounded down. The target is pushed back 10 feet.

If the attacker hits a solid obstacle, they take 1d6 bludgeoning damage for every 10 feet they traveled one direction rounded down.

Fangs:

The fangs take the shape if sharp carnivores teeth across the entire mouth.

The creature can perform a bite attack for 1d6 piercing damage + STR. They also have advantage on escaping from grapple if they can bite their opponent.

Claws:

The claws grow out like razor sharp talons or claws from the target’s fingertips.

The creature can perform a claw attacks as an action or bonus action if unarmed. This allows for two attacks in one turn. The claws do 1d6 + STR or DEX damage each. The creature also has advantage on checks that involve climbing or hanging on a ledge.

Shell:

The shell encompasses the core of the body like that of an armadillo or turtle.

The creature gains +2 to their AC and are resistant to bludgeoning, piercing and slashing damage. if knocked prone, the creature must use their entire movement to stand up.

anonymous asked:

Hi! I heard you are taking request. So here's mine! Companions(including Deacon, X6, Nick and Codsworth) seeing (almost) dying Sole, laying on the ground after the raider attack, and suddenly realizing they love them. What would they do or tell Sole? How will they react to Sole waking up after a while and being totally fine, only a little bit dizzy, and realizing that this giant pool of blood is not theirs?

I hope these are as detailed enough to your liking because this took me f o r e v e r. Like F O R E V E R. Each are basically a mini-fanfiction. I LOVED this prompt though, so it was worth it. Thanks for the ask! Ask box is always open. Sorry if some are ooc I am not the best with all of them, but they should still be somewhat close to.

Enemy

Regret isn’t of my concern,
My past left within its place,
Confirming what I’ve done.

For the days have passed,
None which I can reshape,
No escape where I’m from.

But there’s a greater villain,
Which stares us in the face,
Obstructing every outcome.

Each moment I am unsure,
Of my role in this existence,
A function missing the sum.

I’m prisoner to the present,
Depriving me of that future,
Leaving the mind to qualm.

The mirror is my adversary,
As it reflects who I am now,
And not what I will become.

Oh, life to live, life already lived
time that comes back in a swell of sea
time that recedes without turning its head,
the past is not past, it is still passing by, flowing silently into the next vanishing moment:
—  Octavio Paz

warnette fanfic

i’ve had this idea in my head for months and last night i was upset so i finally decided to go through with it and write it. I wrote for five hours straight and it’s nearly 10,000 words, which I believe makes it my longest one yet. Enjoy Warner getting dragged :)

Today I hungout w my cool best friends fr uni who are a couple years older, are very successful young professionals, who I de-prioritized after my dip into despondency & mental illness these past 2 years..

& instead of *just* meeting for food & a quick catch up sesh like my anxiety intended it turned into long hours of heartfelt divulging, sociological discussion & laughter ringing into the night????

we crashed one of my best friend’s new condo, had wine in tea mugs, lit lavendar candles, bought $1 hot dogs from Costco, made new inside-joke-relevant hashtags, reminisced our rambunctious days (& CONSEQUENTLY FOUND OUT PREVIOUSLY UNTOLD PERSONAL SCANDALS ABT EACH OTHER), made plans for near-future daytrips & even staytrips & it was honestly THE most jovial peace I’ve felt in SUCH a long time.
