leaping into the abyss


HP AU: Gryffindor Annabeth Aesthetic

Annabeth Chase, age 17. Died of massive injuries while leaping like an idiot into the abyss of Chaos and splattering on the entry hall floor of Nyx’s mansion.

Like everything she’d ever done, it was a long shot. In a way, that calmed her down.

At camp you train and train. And that’s all cool and everything, but the real world is where the monsters are. That’s where you learn whether you’re any good or not.

She looked just the way she had when she faced the Sphinx—like she wasn’t going to accept an easy answer, even if it got her in serious trouble.

polemos  asked:

Part 1: From me to you, here's your reminder that: The world loves a great entertainer, but the Universe loves a woman who can captivate an audience and make them FEEL even more. With no effort, that is how both myself and many others see you. Leaps and bounds, constant abyss' that you've jumped- and this Spring will be even more. You're growing constantly, as that woman who can captivate.. and as a silly and lovely human being.

Part 2: I am very proud to see you constantly evolving, and never limiting yourself in this life. You are going to steal the heart of every person you encounter, because simply put- you are just that wonderful. I am ever excited to see who you become, this season.

Thank you :’) You’re always so kind and sweet and hilarious and amazing. Never stop shining like you do, Grey. You’re a star. <3333

Once one’s soul has taken the leap into an abyss of romance, a disease spreads throughout and engulfs the spirit’s entirety. The flames that rage within the heart after such an event are impenetrable. Any attempt to wash away the fire would be done in vain, for once one has acquired such an ailment, it lasts forever.

This is not a leap
into some beautiful abyss
full of life and stars and other planets
no matter how much I wish it was
this cannot be a fall
not quick
or mindless
or uncontrollable
I wish this was about letting go
but of course that cannot be
this must be a climb
up and up and up
while everything else pulls
down and down and down
I will ascend
and the summit

well, I suppose I’ll write it when I reach it

“Annabeth’s heart seemed to slow down. Between the beats she had ample time to write her own obituary. Annabeth Chase, died age 17. BA-BOOM. (Assuming her birthday, July 12th, had passed while she was in Tartarus; but honestly, she had no idea.) BA-BOOM. Died of massive injuries while leaping like an  idiot into the abyss of Chaos and splattering on the entry hall floor of Nyx’s mansion. BA-BOOM. Survived by her father, stepmother, and two stepbrothers who barely knew her. BA-BOOM. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Camp Half-Blood, assuming Gaea hasn’t already destroyed it.” - House of Hades, pages 417-418

Confession:  I made a connection with “Here Lies the Abyss” and when Flemeth told Hawke “When you face the Abyss, don’t hesitate to leap”. It tore me up inside to sacrifice my Hawke but it would have been something he would do and it makes more sense in my canon. And after the whole vision thing and seeing what the Wardens did to the Divine, I kicked their asses out of southern Thedas!
