opening the gates


Jade hadn’t stopped by the cemetery in far too long. Sure she saw Jareth when Callum came by the shop to buy something, but those few interactions were nothing compared to how it was to simply curl up with him and relax, with no one else around. She pushed the gate open, peeking in. “Jareth? I brought candy and movies again.”

                 FIRST it was Hannah and Beth and now? They had lived that hell.
                 They lived it and lost people, this started off as a game and became 
                  so much more.  JESS was dead, she kept wondering how Mike
                  was dealing with that. Dealing with the fact he shoot EMILY, how
                can he be okay? She knew he put on a brave front, but he was hurt.
                Sam had to STOP Matt from being an idiot, everyone when into hell
                 and things happened, stupid things, some that couldn’t be helped.

                 She tried speaking with Chris which ended in him crying and
                 dealing with Matt wasn’t fun. He was filled with rage on himself
                 and to Mike. Matt was pissed at them all, pissed seeing as her
                  and Chris could have stopped Mike from killing Emily. But
                  that wasn’t a lie, they could have done. That pain killed her,
                  but she had that never lasting bubbling thought on how this
                  was hurting Mike.

                  Sam lied to Matt, she had to, she had to do something to stop Matt
                 from hurting Mike. She hated that, but it was only a small white lie.
                 Plus Mike did think the bite was infectious, Sam had to leave it that
                  way. She didn’t want to tell Mike he had killed someone, someone
                that he used to be with for no reason. She told Chris to stick with that
                they bother knew it was for the best.

                Her eyes set onto the door in front of her, softly knocking, it was
                her time to see Mike. She wanted to see if he was okay, she 
                HAD to make sure he wasn’t pushing himself into a mess.

For the August Cullrian Prompt Saturday - mizushiba ASKED: imagine Halward as a last straw for getting Dorian back comes himself to Skyhold. of course Dorian don’t want to with him and Cullen acting overly protective. imagine a big fight between Cullen and Halward witch end with Halward being punched in face to uncouiness by Cullen. I just want to see Halward being punched in face. oh come on he deserve it!

(I’m still kind of squinting and looking sideways at this one but we have reached the day of posting so I’ve come to the conclusion that it is what it is.)


Cullen’s attention was drawn away from the report he was reading by the sounds of a commotion at the gates. He frowned and stood but before he could get too far, the door to his office burst open and one of the gate guards ran in. The guard skidded to a halt and snapped off a salute.

“Sir! There’s a Tevinter Magister at the gates demanding entrance.” The guard blinked and seemed to realise what he’d just said and how that measured up to what they were currently facing. “A… human one, sir. Not Corypheus.”

Cullen very firmly schooled his expression away from the grin that threatened. “I rather gathered it wasn’t Corypheus, soldier. The lack of screaming was a bit of a giveaway. Did this Magister give a name?”

“No, sir, but he’s demanding to speak to Serah Pavus.”

عن أبي هريرة، عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: “المؤمنُ القويُّ خيرٌ وأحبُّ إلى اللَّهِ منَ المؤمنِ الضَّعيفِ ، وفي كلٍّ خيرٌ ، احرِص على ما ينفعُكَ ، واستِعِن باللَّهِ ولا تعجِزْ ، وإن أصابَكَ شيءٌ ، فلا تقُل : لو أنِّي فعلتُ كان كذا وَكَذا ، ولَكِن قل : قدَّرَ اللَّهُ ، وما شاءَ فعلَ ، فإنَّ لو تَفتحُ عملَ الشَّيطانِ” صحيح مسلم

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: “A strong believer is better and is more lovable to Allah than a weak believer, and there is good in everyone, (but) cherish that which gives you benefit (in the Hereafter) and seek help from Allah and do not lose heart, and if anything (in the form of trouble) comes to you, don’t say: If I had not done that, it would not have happened so and so, but say: Allah did that what He had ordained to do and your" if" opens the (gate) for the Satan.” Sahih Muslim 2664
