mai laine

Okay one more shot while I actually have some magic willpower to draw after all these years. 

Since there’s so little out there and the series is over for now I thought I’d attempt Laine Brick from ēlDLIVE in his casual wear hoody and sweats they had when they went to Earth with him proudly displaying his bloated belly after visiting the snack bar. 

@fire-emblem-anon sorry for the abs but at least I tried some bloat on him, was kind of inspired from you being supportive too and wanted to do something for Laine.

i noticed that mele-mele island, akala island and ula-ula island all sort of match up, so maybe alola wasn’t formed by separate volcanoes but were once one island and split up over time. the existing volcanos in alola may have lain across the spits (as happens in our world) but don’t anymore (hence mele-mele having an extinct volcano), the reason i put mele-mele there is because the water is much shallower there “in players boundaries” so possibly the seafloor could have been exposed in the past. 

i don’t know how poni island fits into this

anonymous asked:

As someone whose life, albeit short comparatively, reads like a depressing R rated limony snicket novel....I have a tendency to fear the world around me... I hope to experience my first year abuse free in 2018...How do you not view all of humanity as toxic and horrible after experiencing the worst things at the hands of the people you love?

Easily. I’ve never loved. At least not in the way you mean during that time of wandering to which you refer.

Let me see if I can explain this in a way that makes sense and doesn’t offend. You’re animals. All of you. Me too. We are all animals. Animals make sense to me. I know how to deal with them. But they all have their quirks. Humans are animals with developed cognition, reasoning, pattern recognition. I know from my experience with my own bifurcated consciousness that there is a dichotomy in you too. The urge to obey instinct and the understanding that there can be more order than that.

All this is completely understandable. You are stupid animals developing souls who think they are the end all be all when they don’t even know how to feed themselves properly. It’s amusing and sometimes tedious but that is the objective truth.

I have no expectation of you anymore. I did away with them a while back, when I realized that all my pronouncements of humanity as “stupid” or “nonsensical” may be true in relation to myself, but don’t actually mean anything in the larger context of the universe. Judging you based on some arbitrary meanings and measures unique to me is silly. I do it now largely out of comedic effect, but don’t actually think that there’s anything about humanity that isn’t completely understandable so long as you view humans as animals trying to make sense of reality, using big clunky words and tools to do so. Hurling poop at one another all the time, in every sense one can imagine. You make bombs and use social media now, but it is still poop flinging.

Anyway, I changed my perspective. It may be difficult for you to do that, not because you cannot imagine them as big dumb animals, but because humans usually take a blow to their self esteem when they think of themselves as being big dumb animals. Why? Why is it terrible to be what you are?

Because to you there is more.

And so you see, that is what makes humanity better than a big dumb animal. That’s what makes me appreciate you despite all the wrong done to me. That’s what I see in relation to myself. I fight every day not to be a big dumb animal. Sometimes I am reminded you are also doing this.

Whoever is abusing you is a big stupid mean animal. They are a dog trained to fight, or an ape deprived of socialization, or a sick cow, or whatever metaphor you choose to give them, but it is clear that their innate biological failings have not been helped by higher intelligence. The intelligence has instead bowed to the needs and instincts and stooped to justifying bad behavior. The higher mind can manipulate. The higher mind can harm in ways the big dumb animal cannot, and so the animal takes hold of sentience and wields it like a sword.

Your abuser does not have a “soul”, because they are not working to have one. It is work. It is tribulation. It is a continuous challenge to subvert those instincts, to banish them, instead of letting them harness your intellect. That is what I mean when I say that I “practice” kindness.

We are not endowed with souls, not any of us. There is a body and a chance. And we big dumb animals must work to stop being so dumb, so reckless, so much a slave to circumstances, hoarding resources, lashing out defensively, and so on. We must harness those to something better. That is how we become Real People.

I am sorry you are suffering, but you must remember that you have survived everything. All your worst days. You made it through those. Life is not fair. We hear that constantly, but what does it mean?

It means that life is simply a mess of chaos. Humans hate that, because chaos is horrifying. It means that death is coming, that they cannot stop misery. So they invented “fairness”. Fairness isn’t a thing. It isn’t real. It is just a concept.

What am I saying to you? Am I telling you to sympathize with your abuser? No. Not at all. Big dumb animals must be handled, trained, and even broken to be around people. Am I telling you to put up with it all to free yourself? No. I’m telling you to change how you see what you’ve been through in order to stop it from happening again. To halt the patterns into which, humans can fall. I am telling you to identify those moments of suffering not as failures, but as a learning process that has made you so far, invincible. Am I telling you to get over it? No. I’m telling you to use it, build up your self-esteem by knowing that your job here, your mission to obtain a soul, is never finished. Ever.

No matter how old you become. No matter how many famous people you meet. No matter how many times you are knocked down. You are never finished finding that soul. So when humans are the big dumb animals that nature made them…fair enough, but that doesn’t mean you are. It doesn’t mean you have to be.

You decide what you are. Your parents may have lain groundwork, by you can train yourself. You can practice kindness.

All this I know, about every man woman and child I meet. It is the reason I don’t go mad. It is the reason I no longer kill without a thought, why I move with caution and precision. This notion of the animal becoming an angel, that is something I am still witnessing, have been for centuries.

You’re getting better, if in slow increments. As bad as it all is, it is improving. You cannot see that perhaps because you are always looking forward to the next thing that needs to be done, but I am looking back and seeing all those slave markets, witch trials, prosecutions of women who wore trousers, dead children, viciously cruel lords. I am looking back on starvation and plague, wars like you’ve never seen, colonization. I’m measuring today by that which I have seen, and while there will always be a path forward, you’ve left a great deal behind you.

I hope I can continue to see improvement.

Ah me…I’ve rambled again. I’m sorry. It happens often when I am feeling as I am now and a specific type of ask comes along. Anyway, I hope I’ve answers it. I hope you make it away from the abuse or manage to stop it. I hope I’ve helped you to be less afraid or overcome by it. I hope your situation improves.

Stay safe.

Repentance

It hadn’t been five minutes since they had all passed the rotting maypole when Hawu became possessed of a need she misinterpreted as a desire—bold of face—to be left alone.

Having left behind a clearing where footsteps mattered little by way of mud, the shuffling of six pairs of feet now call up fallen leaves and dirt. One such pair finds the time to visit upon its companions with a sense of affection. Lips pop against two different cheeks, one such cheek bringing her to rise onto her toes before moving on to jostle a smaller pair of feet and another pair of expensive shoes now ruined by mud and gods only know what else. A mutter of congratulatory thanks is leveled to the smaller pair, the quickness of silk sifting against a coat fills the air before at last there lingers one walking mud effigy whom she sweeps up in her feeble arms.

The embrace transfers to the departing soul a host of muddy clothing and the bitter scents of dirt and sweat. Hawu will tell anyone that such an embrace served its purpose but in reality, she hadn’t really figured it would have been so severe.

She had missed Cohno’ra, they hadn’t had the chance to see one another in weeks. It had been weeks, hadn’t it?

Notes: mentions of drugging, but nothing too severe. Hope you enjoy!


Mikan let out a contented sigh as she stared fondly down at your slack countenance, her fingers carefully brushing your hair out of your face.

She just loved to watch you sleep.

With half-lidded grey eyes, Mikan’s hand twitched as she moved it across the bedspread, watching your chest rise and fall. If she had it her way, she’d be under them with you right now, so she could be as close to her beloved as possible and there for you when you woke. The school infirmary was not a popular place to be and Mikan hoped was certain you’d feel better if there was a familiar face nearby. Maybe it would even be like a fairytale, and you’d wake up and admit your true feelings…

A sudden flush crawled up Mikan’s neck and her face flooded with colour as her imagination ran riot in her head. She put her hands to her hot cheeks and let out a sigh of rapture.

Perhaps if you were conscious, you would have been concerned by the look in her eyes, so in this case it seemed that ignorance was bliss. You were friendly with Mikan, compelled to treat her kindly, because others were so quick to cruelty. Romantic feelings did not come to you easily so whether any for Mikan that may have lain dormant in you was largely a mystery. Mikan didn’t mind- she was willing to wait. It was a rare, shining moment that the Ultimate Nurse could get this one-on-one time alone with you, more often than not; you were with a handful of friends or busy attempting to study. And far be it from Mikan Tsumiki to impose her will on someone else.

Yet here, in what she unconsciously considered ‘her territory’, Mikan felt…bolder than usual. She leant down, her hair swaying as she tilted her head. Just a little closer…just a little bit closer and she could kiss-

Mikan suddenly heard a clattering behind her and jolted, standing bolt upright. The moment was gone and a surge of annoyance coursed through her.

“Tsumiki?”

The school nurse poked her head around the curtain.

“Y-yes?” Mikan squeaked, praying that the other woman wouldn’t notice her flushed face.

“I know you’re worried about your friend, but homeroom is about to start. You don’t want to be late, do you?”

“Ah, yes…” Mikan answered meekly, even though she honestly couldn’t have cared less.

The nurse, satisfied, gave a curt nod and vanished again. Mikan heard her shoes clicking importantly on the tiles and let out a breath she didn’t know she’d been holding. Going to class felt to the brunette like being dragged out of paradise…she felt better, was better, whenever she was with you. She knew that as an absolute fact.

When Mikan was with you, nothing else mattered.

A muffled groan suddenly caught the girl’s attention and she let out a startled squeak and spun around.

You were staring up at the ceiling with a discontented expression, eyes still slightly dazed after having just awoken. You reached up, an arm emerging from beneath the stiff infirmary covers and gingerly touched the bandage wrapped around your head.

“Nngh…oww…” you muttered, poking at the wound beneath the wrappings.

“Ah, you’re awake!” Mikan blurted out happily, then immediately slapped her hands over her mouth for saying something so silly and blatantly obvious. “I-I, um, sorry…”

“Mikan?” you asked, your blurred vision finally sharpening as you looked over at the brunette standing beside you. “Have…have you been here all this time?”

“Oh! Um, n-not the whole time, but I h-helped clean your cut when you were brought in…the nurse said that you won’t need stitches, isn’t that wonderful?”

“Yeah, it’s one less worry for me,” you smiled back at her, and this was what Mikan loved about you, you never made her feel foolish, even though she was sure you probably thought she was.

“Oh, you mustn’t try to get up!” Mikan gasped, timidness temporarily forgotten as you attempted to push yourself into a sitting position.

“But I need to-“

You abruptly stopped protesting as Mikan wrapped her arms around you, pressing up close – her breath smelled like mint as it furled across your neck, like smoke.

“Pl-please try to get some rest…” Mikan whispered, her voice wobbling slightly.

You sighed.

“Okay, okay, just don’t start crying.”

Mikan nodded, satisfied and relieved, giving a small smile and straightening up, but it fell away quickly as she heard the bell ring. She really didn’t want to leave, but she knew she couldn’t stay here all day. All she could do was hope that she could steal time with you between classes. If Mikan believed that you would still be here waiting for her, then she could endure anything.

After promising to return once homeroom was over with, Mikan bade you a reluctant farewell and left the infirmary. As she headed for her classroom and sat down at her desk, however, unpleasant thoughts began to stir in her mind as the snide remarks and pointed giggles flowed in her direction. What if she didn’t get another chance to be alone with you? What if the nurse kept interrupting, or stopped her from taking care of you? What if you wondered why Mikan did not come back and started to hate you?

Mikan’s fingers clenched under the desk, her top teeth sinking hard into her bottom lip as a frown crinkled her forehead.

No. No, that wouldn’t do at all.

She’d just have to fix that…whatever it took.

~

“Ts-tsumiki..” the nurse’s voice called out weakly.

“Is something the matter?” Mikan asked innocently, as she looked up at the nurse.

The other woman stood at her desk, her hands clutching either side of it as though she were standing on the deck of a violently rocking ship instead of solid ground. Her body was lightly shaking and her skin, even from across the room, looked pale and clammy.

“I…I really don’t feel well,” the nurse managed to say, a bead of sweat rolling down her temple. “I know you’re a student, but…as an Ultimate, could you…be able to take care of the sick kids for today?”

“Of course!” Mikan said, ushering the now grey-faced woman from the room. “You go home and get some rest. I’m sure even a person like me can manage in a situation like this.”

“I see…thank you, Tsumiki. I will inform your teachers of the situation…”

The nurse hurried out of the infirmary with swaying steps, and she never did notice the sinister smirk on Mikan’s lips. Perhaps if she had, she might have connected the dots of why her afternoon coffee had that strange aftertaste, or where the missing key to the locked medicine cabinet had gone…

Assured that she would not be bothered again, Mikan turned and hummed to herself as she prepared your drink, crushing up and adding a little ‘extra’ ingredient to the concoction. Picking up a jug and a glass of water, she crossed the room, heading for your bed with her heart pounding.

“Hello?” Mikan called sweetly as she gently nudged her way through the curtain hiding you from view. “I hope you don’t mind, but I brought you something to drink.”

You smiled at Mikan as she approached the bed, propped up by several lumpy pillows. She really was a good friend – being able to take care of someone was par for the course for the Ultimate Nurse, but she just genuinely seemed to care and want to help. She seemed so happy when you accepted a glass of water from her; you couldn’t bring yourself to mention you’d have rather had juice or at least something with a little flavour, so you took a gulp of slightly cloudy water without complaint. Mikan was overly sensitive on a good day and you knew she didn’t need any added stress, now that the school nurse had left her in charge of any sick people who wandered in.

“Thanks,” you said, after a small pause while you drank, “It’s funny, normally I’d be happy with getting out of class, but there’s nothing really to do in here but sleep. I’m kinda bored, but at least we’ve got each other for company.”

“Ah, yes, that’s right!” Mikan smiled, her heart soaring inside her. Here, in this moment, she had you all to herself. She sighed in bliss.

“Are you okay?” you asked her, misunderstanding. “You’re probably exhausted from doing all this extra work, huh?”

“Oh, I don’t mind!” Mikan was quick to assure you, “It’s the only thing I can really do, so it only makes sense I keep going no matter what.”

“You’re too hard on yourself,” you said, shaking your head and giving Mikan a look of equal parts fondness and exasperation. However, a small frown crossed your face, almost like you were in pain.

“Are you all right?” Mikan asked, clasping her hands.

“I feel kinda…dizzy…” you said, blinking lethargically a couple of times. “The room looks all…blurry.”

“Hmm, maybe you need to lie down?” Mikan suggested, helping you lean back, leaning in close and breathing in your scent. “Even little headwounds can affect your senses, so please don’t overdo it. I could read to you for a little, if you w-wanted?”

“Okay,” you agree, shifting in place, as they were not very comfortable beds. “That sounds nice…”

Mikan nodded eagerly and reached into her bag, pulling out a magazine that had been in there for a week or so. You listened to her passively as she flipped it open and began reading out loud, and soon your eyes started to close of their own accord. You had a faint smile on your lips as Mikan glanced at you, but there was a faint sheen of sweat on your forehead. She gazed at you fondly, her fingers touching her lip.

“That’s right…rest now, my love…” Mikan whispered to you, leaning in and pressing her lips to yours, uncaring you couldn’t hear her or even respond to what she was doing. All that mattered was that she finally could say what was in her heart. “I’ll take care of you…s-so stay with me. Stay with me…and don’t leave me…okay?”

The room was quiet after that as Mikan twitched the curtains shut. Carefully, she climbed up onto the bed and lay down on top of the blankets beside you, but she pretended to hear the words she longed for, and closed her eyes with a smile on her face as she dreamt of you.

The maxim ‘as above, so below’ underpins the philosophy of astrology. Inner and outer lives are woven
together through investing the celestial sphere with meaning. Therefore when astronomical discoveries are
made astrologers find new meaning and revelation in them. Astrological tradition suggests that with the
major discovery of a planet the collective is confronted with the conscious awakening of an archetypal
force that may have previously lain dormant or been repressed.
