Okay so @soltserra had the best idea to combine all my favorite things (Glowing tattoos, constellations, and Allura) into one amazing AU so naturally I had to do some fanart (with permission) of it!! Seriously you should go and follow them right now
You can never go wrong with space and glitter, as I always say
Concept: Taking a midnight drive down a deserted dirt road, surrounded by nothing but open fields, a lake, and a clear night sky decorated by only the brightest stars.
You decide to pull over and we lay on the hood of the car so we can stargaze. You point out your favorite constellations but I can’t stop looking at the faces you make when you talk about the universe.
like my space prompt list from forever ago, but constellations
Andromeda - You who was kept captive by those who despised your name, you are now free to roam wherever you please amongst the stars
Aquarius - You are the one who brings the water to the scorched desert, the flood, the taker and the giver. I am a desert, craving the water you will eventually bring
Aries - The protector of the helpless, the lost, and the scared. Deliver me from this place, let your fire drive away my shadows
Cancer - My mind yearns for a distraction, for respite, and you offer it to me, no matter for how little of time
Capricornus - You have always been a fickle thing, dancing to and from shores of reality and truth, but always willing to dive into the sea of imagination. Let me swim with you, and create a new world of stars
Cassiopeia - Despite being chained to a stale life, you live with your head held high and your pride higher. I approach you on bowed knee, offering a key to your chains
Corona Borealis - A crown of stars lays across your gentle brow and yet they are so bright that they make you blind to them. You cannot see past the white light, so far and distant to all else, but you see best when you cannot see a thing
Cygnus - I caught you once in passing, a summer’s dream. But I felt we were like swans torn apart - and swans hold close the ideal of forever
Draco - Even in the coldest of nights, your fiery passion keeps my heart warm
Gemini - A conundrum of all, too naive yet too wise, to kind yet too harsh, yet solid in only one thing. Complete in being more than one is the only constant in your ever-changing flux
Hydra - Despite your hardships you come back, bigger, stronger and harsher to fight back the thing that took you the first time
Leo - An air of nobility and an aura of barely bridled power, you drew me to you like a magnet, like I was waiting for a great disaster upon your arrival but I could not look away. We have a horrible tendency to be fascinated with fantastic tragedy
Libra - You always make sure that we are equal in give and in take, in love and in strife. A constant back and forth, like the high and low tides cycling through
Pisces - The birthplace of beauty would be no strange place for me to see if I gazed upon your face, your radiance and gentleness like a breath of spring after the harsh winter
This is getting really long so I’ll do more later (yes I know this doesn’t have all of the zodiacs, relax)
some nights i’d feel so alone that the only comforting thing was the sky. so id learn a ton of constellations and go and sit outside and find every single one that i could and i would beg the sky to light me up inside because i was tired of burning out and i was desperately in need of some light and guidance. i painted planets on my walls and wrote down my favorite constellations. and on the very worst nights, when i felt like i was drowning underneath all of the blackness, i’d look at the moon and remember that someone, somewhere else was looking up at the sky, at that very moment, looking for the same thing as me. and at times, this is the most comforting thing.
you’re never alone. other people feel this way too.
