Chapter 1: To be Born and to Die

“Keep up, little brother.  We want to get good seats for this lecturer of yours.”  Killian tried to glare as Liam laughed jovially and reached out to ruffle his hair.  His glasses slid down on his nose as the roughhousing got a little too rowdy, but Liam backed off immediately when Killian stumbled.  

He wasn’t a baby any more; why couldn’t Liam understand that?  He was thirteen years old, had already taken his GCSE’s the year before - three years before any of his peers - and was well on his way to finishing his sixth form courses in record time.  He’d be done with his secondary education that spring and could move on to a bachelor’s program after he’d taken some local classes to prepare himself for the rigors of his program.  Colleges and universities were already hounding their father to admit him early, and, with Liam’s guidance and support, Killian planned to accept an enrollment at Oxford contingent on his classwork.  Liam was already looking at flats there for the two of them while he attended classes.  Oxford University was far enough away from Brennan Jones that Killian could thrive in the educational culture without reproach.  Without his father’s blatant disapproval and patent neglect.

The book in his hands was written by the speaker they were in Ireland to see.  This man was well-versed in quantum mechanics and had ideas that meshed with Killian’s own theories and early experiments.  He wanted very badly to speak with the man after the lecture, see if he could glean just a little bit more knowledge to help with the blueprints he was drafting.  The chapter he was currently devouring as they walked down the street, complete with highlighter in hand and a bit of luck in not tripping over the sidewalk, was the main subject of the lecture.  

Killian paused to turn the page, covering a passage completely in scribbled yellow.  This idea was something new; something that might get him over the latest obstacle in his calculations.  Completely absorbed in the words on the page, he paused in the middle of the walkway, his eyes glued to the information.  Unknowingly, Killian sank down to sit hunched over the book on someone’s front steps, the cold of the concrete ignored in favor of the knowledge that gripped him.

The numbers for his algorithm bounced around his head wildly; if he could just figure out this stage of the formula, then maybe his father would take him seriously.  If he could just work out how to make the bridge connect, then he could convince someone to fund the construction of his machine.  Time travel was possible; he knew it was.  Now if he could just-

BANG! BANG! BANG!

HEY. WANT KEKKAI PIXEL STUFF FOR YOUR SIDEBAR?

Use these for your blog, based on the work of feastings.  Yes, I haven’t finished all of them: so keep an eye out for more in the near future.  Credit makes you an awesome person, like in a link somewhere that people can find it.


sooo, kinda like rev!pines, except instead the twins make a deal with bill and get dapper clothes and dream demon powers? inspired by a piece of fanart i remember seeing posted way back but that i can’t find anymore (which is where dipper’s yellow-tiled vest came from), if anyone knows which fanart i’m talking about please add a link because a) it was awesome, and b) i’d like to credit the person who originally thought this up

The Darling Affair (1/18)

Summary:  Ex-military officer Killian Jones has never forgiven the Gold family for what they took from him. But when his path searching for justice (and maybe revenge) leads him straight to Emma Swan, a social worker who’s young charge has just been kidnapped by Malcolm Gold, he might just learn to let go of the past.

Rated:  T, for violence, kidnapping, some dark themes

Art credit/link: The totally awesome @shady-swan-jones took on the story and made some fabulous art for it.  You can see the art here.

Beta and cheerleader: @delightfully-difficult-pirate and @nothingimpossibleonlyimprobable, thanks so much for all of your help and cajoling and reassuring!

A/N:  I’m so excited (and more than a little nervous) to finally be posting this!  Once upon a time, I thought this was going to struggle to get to 20K… apparently I underestimated the plot a bit…
So here’s the first chapter of my submission for the @captainswanbigbang Big Bang Challenge.  Take it away, It’s going to be a bumpy ride.

We’ll meet Emma in the next chapter, but for now, enjoy meeting Killian and Liam Jones.

Chapter 1: Mission: Success


The sharp, fiery pain that erupted between his shoulder blades caught Killian by surprise and almost – almost – had him gasping in pain.  Quickly, he bit back the instinctual response and sucked air in through his nose to quell the instinct to flee.  Outwardly, it looked as if he barely reacted to the blow, absorbing the force and immediately sitting up straight again as if it were nothing.  A muscle in his cheek twitched due to his clenched jaw, but otherwise, there was no movement.  Killian may have wanted nothing more than to curl away from the pain, but that didn’t matter.  His body may have been telling him to get up from his chair and pace until the sharp sting of half-healed wounds faded back to a dull roar, but he fought the urge.  He may have wanted nothing more than to rail at the man who had caused him to hurt in the first place, but that man was far away and rotting in prison by now.  It had been a very long time since he’d been so undisciplined as to let such signs of weakness show when he was at the office.  

Even to Liam.  

Especially to Liam.  

Killian continued to stare straight ahead and waited patiently.

Geekfest Cosplay Sunday Weekend!

Sunday’s now a regular cosplay theme day here on my Tumblr. However, since I’ve got such a lot of cool stuff saved in my drafts, I’m dedicating an entire weekend to cosplay from cartoons, anime, video games, movies and really, whatever else has caught my fancy lately (and not so lately.) There’s no real theme, so just sit back and enjoy the random awesomeness.
