Quite enjoyed writing this one actually. It was a refreshing way to write Loki - not all fluffy and cute and “misunderstood” but not a total psychopath either. Just clever and sassy and nasty and just… Loki. I hope you’ll agree with me when I say that the character in this fic felt much more natural. If you disagree, please tell me and I’ll experiment with it again in the future. I owe immathrowabrickatyou some credit for the story idea for this one, hope you like how I did it. Enjoy, my darlings!
Plague (Part 1)
Loki hated it on Midgard. His punishment from Odin had been
Thor’s idea – to work alongside his greatest enemies, the Avengers, so as to
try and earn their forgiveness. It had tampered with his plans drastically and
left him thoroughly irritated.
He was not the only new recruit either. You had joined as
repentance for your crimes but under much less murderous circumstances. You’d
been responsible for facing the Avengers in Russia, where they had been
searching for Loki’s sceptre, and after tackling you to the ground, Thor had seen
your potential and brought you in. It turned out that HYDRA had been holding
your family captive and, after their rescue, you agreed to join the team.
You couldn’t stand the silver-tongued God, and the feeling
was mutual. Luckily that was the last thing on your mind as you sat snivelling
on the sofa. Headache, check. Blocked nose, affirmative. Sore throat – of
course! And to top it all off, you were stuck babysitting.
“What is wrong with it?” Loki asked, all too casually from the other side of
the room. You glared at him from but Thor placed a gentle hand on your knee to
quell your anger.
“Nothing is wrong with her Loki. She’s
sick, that is all. You are going to be taking care of her whilst we are on a
Despite Thor’s words, both you and the trickster knew what
he really meant. It was going to be your job to keep him out of trouble whilst the others were away.
“If that stupid ape gives me her disease-”
“Don’t tempt me.” You spat. Thor scowled at you and you coughed before
“It’s just influenza, Loki. Nothing harmful to us. An inconvenience at best.”
“Can I kill him now?” You pleaded.
Thor chuckled before standing. He patted you on the head but you pulled away
before he could do so for long. You certainly didn’t need mollycoddling.
“Good luck.” He declared as he departed, long crimson cape flowing behind him.
“I do not need luck, Odinson.” Loki sneered. Thor smirked and peered back
around the doorframe.
“Who said I was talking to you?”
Summary: Sam and Dean Winchester meet the Mikaelson’s
The Winchester brothers were currently driving in New Orleans for a place to stay. “ Legend says that there is a witch coven that’s in New Orleans. Think its true? “ Dean asks glancing at Sam. Sam shrugs his shoulders. “ Maybe, guess anythings possible, “ Sam says.
They pulled into a local motel, got their keys and stayed the night.
“ Hey, I read in the paper that Mardi Gras is today, “ Sam says the next morning. “ I don’t do Mardi Gras, “ Dean says with a roll to his eyes. “ Oh come on Dean, sometimes they throw moon pies at you, “ Sam says chuckling. “ Seriously? Lets go then, get me some moon pies, “ Dean says giving a side smile and throwing his leather jacket over his shoulder.
They arrived downtown where the Mardi gras was being held. “ No many beads, “ Dean comments watching masked people throw bead necklaces at people. “ New record, your already complaining about something, “ Sam says laughing. “ Shut up, “ Dean mumbles walking ahead of him. Sam took the chance to look around at everything. When he was done he glanced back at Dean only to see him get hit in the head with something. “ Son ov’a, “ Dean mumbles looking down at what hit him. “ Hey, its a moon pie, ‘ Dean says lifting it off the ground. When he stood up right he saw someone jump off a building porch, landing perfectly on the ground. “ The hell? “ Dean and Sam say at the same time. No one else seemed to notice. Dean walked right up to him.
“ You alright man? “ Dean asks. “ Yes, why do you ask? “ the man named Klaus asked. “ You just jumped from practically from the top of this building, “ Sam says motioning his arms towards the tall building. “ I don’t know what your talking about, “ Klaus says nonchalantly. “ We just saw you jum- “ Dean was cut off by someones voice. “ Everything alright brother? “ Elijah asks walking over to Sam, Dean and Klaus. Rebekah was with him. “ Yes, everything’s fine Elijah, “ Klaus says not taking his eyes off of Sam and Dean. “ Your brother here just jumped off this building without getting hurt. What are you, “ Dean asks walking closer with narrowed eyes. “ I’m afraid you wouldn’t believe me even if I told you the truth, “ Klaus says smiling sarcastically. “ Oh you have no idea, “ Sam fills in. “ Hunters, “ Elijah mumbles. “ Let me ask you again. What. Are.You. “ Dean says. “ Even if we told you, you wouldn’t be able to kill us, we are the originals, nothing can. Not fire, not any kind of bullets. Silver wont work, not even a witch can kill us, “ Rebekah say. “ The originals? “ Sam says confused. “ The original vampires, the first on earth. Again you can not kill us, “ Elijah says. “ Yeah well. Anything on this earth can be killed one way or another. “ Dean says. “ We’ll love to chat when you find a way, but for now, we would like to enjoy the Mardi gras, “ Klaus says running at full speed, away from Sam and Dean.

and filling it with greens.

voice. “It’s because of Bobby huh?”

your utter distaste for him?”
dumped in mandarin slices. “He just rubs me the wrong way. He gives off this egotistical

I wanted you to think of him more positively since I kind of promised him you’d

Warnings: Banter, embarrassment, threats.
Author’s Note: Ahh, my first chatroom! So I saw this blog, @avengerschatroom, and I loved it, and a lot of people wanted more. However, she is one human being and not a super soldier, so I thought, “Why don’t I take a really weak crack at it and probably embarrass myself in front of millions of people, even though lets be honest, you don’t even haave a thousandth of that many notes.” But I’m proud of it, and I was like, “Well, the worst that could happen is everybody hates it and I get shamed off of Tumblr!” HAHA…ha Also, since I made this from my mind and anything goes, this is some weird AU where like, I guess the Avengers got back together but they pretend like Civil War never happened…I guess? I just really wanted Peter Parker, and to keep the Tony Stank joke alive, but I also wanted all of the avengers (or at least, as many as I could fit) for that much more humor, and I’m sorry that this AU makes no sense but yeah.

When a confused Arjuna turned to his charioteer, Lord Krishna, for advice at the Kurukshetra, Lord Krishna stated some rational philosophical concepts that are relevant even today. Bhagavad Gita is an epic scripture that has the answers to all our problems. It was considered a spiritual dictionary by Mahatma Gandhi and was a book of inspiration for many leaders of the Independence movement. Take a look at some of these life lessons you can use from the Gita to bring your life back on the right track.
1. Whatever happened, happened for the good. Whatever is happening, is happening for the good. Whatever will happen, will also happen for the good.
So get over it. Whatever you’re sulking about, forget it. The job interview that didn’t go well, or the relationship that didn’t work was bound to happen and it happened. Everything happens for a reason. There is a reason you’re going through a bad phase and there is a reason you might be basking in glory - it’s a cycle and you need to quietly accept it. You need not worry about the future, nor should you pay attention to the past. You only have control over the present, so live it to the fullest.
2. You have the right to work, but never to the fruit of work.
‘Karm karo, phal ki chinta mat karo’ is the wisest message the Bhagwad Gita gives us. Today, we are working only for money, a better house, a car, and for a secure future. We are so goal-driven, that we do everything only on thinking about the results. For instance, we all work extra hours during our appraisal time, thinking that our bosses will rate us highly on our performance evaluation. This is something we need to avoid. Only because, if expectations are not met, pain is inevitable. Therefore, keep working and don’t expect anything in return.
3. Change is the law of the universe. You can be a millionaire, or a pauper in an instant.
How true! Nothing is permanent in our lives. The earth keeps revolving, it does not stay stable; the day ends and the night follows; after humid summers follow relieving monsoons. This reinforces the fact that impermanence is the law of the universe. Therefore being proud of your wealth is a sign of immaturity, because it can vanish into thin air in a minute. Accepting change makes you coherent enough to face any tough situations in your life.
4. The soul is neither born, and nor does it die
We can achieve nothing if fear is instilled within us. Fear kills ambition, dreams and even the slight chances of progress. A fearless soul has nothing to worry about, because it knows it cannot be caged, and nor can it be stopped. Thus, the fear of death is absurd, as our souls don’t die. Fear and worry are two enemies, that are deterrents to our well-being. We must strive to eradicate them from our minds completely.
5. You came empty handed, and you will leave empty handed.
We get so attached to material things that we often forget that we won’t be taking them with us to the grave. We came stark naked into this world, and we will go without taking anything to our graves. Not even our phones! Attachment to material things is something we need to pay attention to, because we don’t possess things - things start possessing us.
6. Lust, anger and greed are the three gates to self-destructive hell.
Kama, krodh and lobh have done us no good. Unreasonable craving for sex will turn you into a pervert, anger will drive people away from you and greed will never let you be satisfied.
7. Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is.
You are what you think you are. Your thoughts make and define you. If you think you’re a happy person, you become happy. If you let sad thoughts take over your mind, you tend to become a sad person. If you feel that you will nail a presentation in a meeting, then chances are that you will. However, if you’re not prepared and feel nervous then you might make a blunder.
8. When meditation is mastered, the mind is unwavering like the flame of a lamp in a windless place.
We consider meditation boring. Who can sit still with their eyes closed and without vile thoughts? But we truly need to take out a few minutes from our busy schedules and sit in dhyana to attain inner peace. Whether it’s a quiet corner of our cosy home, or just a secluded spit in office, closing your eyes and sitting in peace will give you immense peace of mind.
9. There is neither this world, nor the world beyond. nor happiness for the one who doubts.
Doubts create misunderstandings. They confuse you and fog your mind with unclear thoughts. They also bring indecisiveness and make you a coward. For instance, if you’re in a relationship and if you have doubts about your partner’s loyalty and love then you will never be able to take your relationship further. Love has no doubts. If it does, then it’s not love.
10. We’re kept from our goal not by obstacles, but by a clear path to a lesser goal.
‘Dream big’ is the message here. If you’re dreaming about buying a house, you can’t keep it on hold by dreaming about a motorcycle. Although small goals are important, forgetting your ultimate goal will only stunt your growth. Don’t settle for less, strive hard to achieve the bigger goals.
11. A person can rise through the efforts of his own mind; or draw himself down, in the same manner. Because each person is his own friend or enemy.
You’re your own best friend. If you have a problem, only you will have a solution to it, and not your friend. To find answers to your questions, you will have to look within. Seeking suggestions from ten different people who you call ‘friends’ is not going to help because they have ten solutions to one problem, whereas your solution is the ultimate answer.
Castle by Halsey and Nalu!!! P.S. Maybe with Natsu as E.N.D.?! 😈❤️
Pairing: EndLu, T for minor violence

A/N: I think you misunderstood the song prompt thing lol, but oh well! This was fun and good practice for angst week. This kinda took it’s own turn, but I’m still lowkey proud of it :D Requests are currently closed :p
Natsu stood on the battlefield, bodies of demons and humans strewn about in in a wide arc, no pattern. Fire licked at his claws, dark black talons growing from where his nails used to be and scales covering the skin of his wrists and forearms.
He let loose a feral snarl, turning slowly in a circle, daring anyone to challenge him. A grin that felt twisted even to him revealed his elongated fangs, lower lip bleeding where they touched. Power surged through him, consumed him in white hot ecstasy. He wanted to fight.
The sound resonated in his chest, flames from his thrown back head and reaching for the smoke and ash filled sky, mixing with the deafening sound of challenge and bestial power. He dropped his head back into a normal position, manic laugh pulling from his throat even as he felt blood trickle down the sides of his chin. His own or someone else’s he didn’t care.
His head whipped to the right, pointed ears twitching at the soft call. He watched with a cocked head as a figure slowly emerged from the smoke. Her clothes were in tatters, revealing milky skin that was blemished with dirt and blood. She shook as she continued to walk towards him, twin paths cleared from honey brown eyes along her cheeks by tears. “Stop it.”
Natsu grinned at her command, because that was how she said it. Though the fear in her body and decimation around her, Lucy’s voice did not quiver and her tone was final. She was so strong. His weirdo.
