Prompto’s Adventures Pt3: Celebrity... or Serial Killer?
(whispering quietly, why am i like this? someone tell @numinoceur to make me stop writing…)
There are several moments when Prompto tells himself that he needs to take a good step or two back. That he really, really needs to calm the hell down about Noctis. Date number two comes and goes. It’s a trip down to the beach, and they eat from a little seafood place near the water that sells pretty good fish and chips, then they walk along the beach. Prompto manages to keep his pants on through it, at least, though there’s a couple more of those really good kisses. And okay, maybe after the second date, Prompto has a date with his fist in the shower after, and it’s Noct’s name that he’s gasping out quietly as he spills over his own fingers.
You know, the thing I love most about tianshan is this seeming, keen contrast they have. Poor, rich. Weak, powerful. Family, no family. Hot, cold. Short-tempered and reckless, calm and calculated. Pure, tainted. Also, red and blue. (ok I know, this might be subjective and you don’t have to agree with me at all, I understand.. yet I couldn’t help but notice.. that blue is such a He Tian color? He always seems to wear blue shirts and yeah I could easily take it as ‘perhaps he likes keeping it minimal or whatever?’ and shrug it off, but I just can’t avoid the aesthetics of this damn ship. Minimal
black/blue plain clothing that emphasizes his well-build body, whereas Guan Shan prefers clothes a bit more loosen, you know, the way skinny boys would wear. Just so you know, I’m not talking about the uniform! Remember that time they met randomly on the street and Guan Shan was munching on his lovely sandwich ((the day he will happily manage to eat it I will take a day off and celebrate)) and he was wearing that white-peach shirt with a nice looking design on the back? Let me tell you, the boy may not be able to afford expensive clothing or whatever, unlike someone, but damn he has style.
Anyways. I just found it intriguing how, even to such an extent (details, palette) they are ying-yang. Two poles that can never touch. There’s this endless distance between them, as if they belong to two different worlds and there’s no way they would, well, collide. Get together, be something. Too complicated. Too dangerous.
In fact, I believe they aren’t parallels at all. They’re just the same. “Where I end and you begin” kind of thing. It’s like planting two identical seeds on different types of ground and watch them grow. Less water for one, maybe less sunlight for the other. Of course they won’t grow the same
— and one might turn out blue and the other red but that’s just the beauty of variety.
The more I analyze them as characters the more I find just how alike they are. Which is why I believe they canand will fall in love with each other. Isn’t love all about finding yourself in another and all that? Uh, yeah, kind of sappy and overused, but true nonetheless. There’s no wonder they are so drawn to each other. Studying each other, more or less consciously. Always, always intrigued (where’s He Tian going? what’s redhead’s name anyway?). Mo Guan Shan might be all “I don’t fucking get you” but I’d say he’s the only one who can actually fucking get He Tian.
They are day and night and they always meet at dawn and I think it’s beautiful and I want them happy.
Summary: So, you’ve just been bitten? Then you are freaking LUCKY you ran into me. Yes, I’m like you. Yes, I’m a werewolf. No, I’m not a monster. And no, neither are you… not now that you’ve met me. I’ll teach you the basics, and the complex. Life for a Lycanthrope is tough and dangerous; but I’ll guide you through it using my own experiences. Welcome my Werewolf’s Guide to Life. Pairing:TBD Words: 2108 Warnings: Language. Injury. AN: This exists because I have approximately 0 restraint. This is potentially the first part of a series inspired by the book ‘The Werewolf’s Guide to Life: A Manual for the Newly Bitten’ by Ritch Duncan and Bob Powers. If you’re interested in that kind of spoof, quirky guidebook, than I HIGHLY recommend it. It is one of my favourite books. The werewolves in this story are different from those that appear in the show! I am drawing on the book, the show, and my own preferences for these werewolves. As of right now, it has no pairing, but that is likely going to change as the series continues. Hope You Enjoy it!!! Constructive Criticism Welcome!
No way… fuck.
You… you’re like me,
I-All I can think to
say is… I’m sorry. I am so, so sorry.
No one deserves this.
No one asks for this.
No one wants this.
Yet here you are… and
here I am.
I can help. Or at
least I can try to.
I’ve been where you
are now, and it sucks. You’re scared, right? You’re scared, you’re hungry, you’re
twitchy, and you feel as though there is something… something almost evil inside you. Like something has latched
itself onto your soul, and you just can’t shake it.
Let me tell you right
now, and I’m sorry to be blunt, but that feeling won’t go away. Ever. No matter
what you do, how hard you try, how far you run. It’s there. It will always be
there. It’s a part of you now.
But don’t worry.
Please, just don’t. Take a deep breath, and listen to me.
You are not a monster.
monsters, not the bite.
Ok, it’s time to stop
rambling on and being all poetic and shit. I mean, look at you! You’re only…
what? A few hours in? I mean, those bite marks on your neck aren’t even healed
yet! Which means we’ve got to work fast.
If there is one thing
I remember quite vividly, it’s that the first day is crucial. Mainly because
if, like me, you know nothing about what the hell just happened, you’re going
to have some questions, and you’ll be desperate for answers.
I cannot stress enough
how important it is that you get those answers from a reliable source! Also,
make sure that that source won’t try and kill you. Trust me, that is NOT a mistake
you want to make!
They said: “And even if you do love him,don’t show it,don’t tell it.It’s a sickness,a sin” I said: “It’s what he does to me and I can no longer hide it.So write it down in the books of history: I will always be a sick sinner”
every time i wear the hero of heart t-shirt or hoodie i like to think people look at me and think “oh that’s some poetic shit they are looking to find their other half” or something dumb and romantic when in reality i’m just displaying the gaping hole andrew hussie tore out of my heart with this goddamn webcomic
Sometimes I think about the sheer amount of time scientists had to spend doing calculations by hand prior to computers and I’m really glad that they invented computers. See also: graphing by hand and looking up articles in card catalogs.
79. “I’ll still be here when you’re ready.” + Derek in New York + phonecall
So, uh how’s
It’s going great. Everything’s great, you know. Nemeton
asleep, no monsters, all that jazz.
Uh huh. Yeah.
So, um –
Um, I got a job here.
Yeah, it’s um, it’s
at a local Mexican restaurant. As a chef, but um, I’ve been working on my
photography and it’s coming along rather well, so uh, maybe I’ll pitch a
portfolio to Laura’s art gallery soon, see what they think.
I’m sure they’ll love it.
So, uh, what sort of photographs?
Oh, um, anything that
catches my fancy really. I haven’t come up with a coherent theme yet. Maybe when
they’re all done and developed, I can see what fits.
So, uh, how’s Scott?
Great. It’s easier to be an Alpha in a town where there’s no
monsters anymore and your biggest problem is whether your girlfriend’s gonna
get mad you skipped a date because you wanted to play WoW with your best
Yeaahh, I guess she does.
So, um, any plans for Christmas?
Oh, uh, not really.
Yeah, um, I just don’t
know that many people here.
Um, well, you could always fly back, you know.
I don’t know if I can
get the time off work.
But I can try.
That’d be cool.
I don’t know, I just,
I like New York a lot. It’s busy, it keeps me from thinking too much – it has
no ghosts. I just, I can’t –
It’s okay, Derek, it’s okay.
No, it’s not. I know
what could have happened.
Really, it’s fine, Derek. I understand.
Please, will you just
let me say this?
Oh, yes. Of course. I’m sorry. Um, go on.
I think, uh, I think,
I really do, that if I had stayed, we could, we could have been, you know –
I, um, I really
appreciated you being there for me when it all happened. But, Stiles, Beacon
Hills – I just can’t come back. It hurts too much. I felt like I was empty and
now that I’m here, I feel like I’m healing again. And I need to be alone for a
while. Figure stuff out.
Look at you being all poetic and shit.
No, no. Please don’t apologize. Nothing is your fault.
And Derek, it’s okay. I understand. And I’ll wait. It’s
No, please. Don’t
wait. I don’t want you to give up dating and stuff because I can’t be in a
relationship right now.
Go out. Have fun.
Don’t limit yourself.
Derek, for god’s sake!
There’s no one else, you idiot. I’ve been in love with you
since like, forever. I can wait. It’s okay. You matter.
Yeah. What did you think?
Um, I don’t know. I just
never expected this.
Is it not good?
No, no, it’s great. I
Derek, I don’t expect anything. When I said I’ll wait, it
doesn’t mean that I’m putting a limit on the time you need to sort things out.
Please, take your time. Take all the time you need.
Look. I still have about a year of school left.
And um, I’ve been looking into NYU.
Yeah. They have, uh, they have a good ciminal law program. But
only if you’re okay with it.
That would be – that would
The criminal law part or the coming to New York part?
