Imagine Rick Flag giving you the best night of your life.

——— Request for anon ———

The sun was breaking over the horizon, but you and Rick were still wide awake. The last few hours of the night had been spent in long conversation riddled with topics only found hilarious when one is deprived of sleep, but neither of you wanted to call it a night once the places he’d taken you had lead you home.

“The sun’s coming up,” he notices, gesturing weakly towards the light that casts shadows against his fingers as he smiles contentedly at the sight.

“Already? Time flew!” you gasp, looking towards the colors that were beginning to be strewn across the sky, announcing the end of the night and the birth of a new day. With a mournful sigh, you accept that what was possibly the best night of your life was now over, yet his next sentence gives you new hope.

“We should do this again sometime.”

Moana AU! Yata sets out to the sea to get grumpy demigod Fushimi to return Te Fiti's heart. Fushimi acts like he doesn't care but secretly just wants to be loved <3 Doting tattoo Munakata trying to get Fushimi to socialize and absolutely useless chicken sidekick Mikoto who's always sleeping add to the fun!

Mikoto the lazy useless chicken is maybe my new favorite thing XD So Yata is the son of the village chief of small island tribe Homra and he likes all the people there and everything but he also finds himself constantly looking out at the sea and wishing he could go out exploring. He feels really cooped up stuck on the island, plus he’s not really sure how good a chief he’d be anyway and he’s always worrying that he’s not going to be able to measure up to the standards of a chief. The only person who he feels kinda understands him is official village crazy person Totsuka, who spends all his time hanging out in the shallows playing with the rays and looking out over the horizon. One day Yata gets into a fight with his mentor Kusanagi and runs off, Totsuka finds him and asks if Yata wants to come explore the cool cave Totsuka found. Yata figures why not and the two of them head off together. While searching the cave Yata discovers a bunch of old boats and realizes that the people of Homra were once voyagers how traveled the sea and had awesome adventures. Yata of course is all hyped up for this but Kusanagi reprimands him for it because no one’s allowed to leave the island, there’s nothing but danger out there on the ocean (which Kusanagi knows, because when he was young he tried to go out exploring and his best friend Mikoto came with him and drowned. In Mikoto’s honor Kusanagi has named his laziest chicken after him).

Yata’s all depressed that he’s not allowed to go exploring the way his people used to when strange things start happening on the island, like all their harvested coconuts are rotten and there’s no fish, plus people have maybe started coming down with like some kind of strange corrupting disease. Yata’s feeling helpless because even though he’s supposed to be the guy who everyone looks to for help there’s not really anything he can do. That’s when the ill and dying Totsuka calls Yata into his hut and gives Yata this strange glowing stone. He tells Yata that the magic glowing rock is actually the heart of the god Weismann, who created the world and then fell into a long sleep on the island of Dresden. Legend says Weismann’s heart was stolen by a demigod named Fushimi and then lost when Fushimi was defeated by a god of destruction called Colorless who also wanted the heart. The blight that’s affecting the island is the effects of Colorless’s rage, finally reaching their small island. Yata’s all confused as to how Totsuka got the rock and Totsuka says he saw the ocean bring it to Yata when Yata was little. Yata’s all confused and then he remembers one day when he was little and tried to go look at the ocean, and the water parted for him. Yata’s mom pulled him away before he could wander too far but Totsuka thought the rock was pretty and kept it. He gives it to Yata and tells Yata not to worry, everything will be all right, and he believes that Yata can restore the heart and save everyone. Yata’s worried though because by giving him the heart Totsuka suddenly looks weaker than before and maybe Totsuka just smiles shakily and says that it’s fine, he was always sickly and knew he’d die young and that maybe he should have given Yata the heart earlier before things got this bad but he wanted to live just a little longer. He’s going to be reincarnated as a ray though, so it won’t be that bad, and he tells Yata to smile.

Poor heartbroken Yata promises Totsuka that he’ll fix things and he runs out to the nearest boat, setting out to sea. He’s already out of sight of the village when he realizes there’s a chicken asleep in the bottom of the boat and is like well, I guess it’s just you and me Mikoto-san (Yata’s always been very polite to the chicken okay, he’s heard stories about the chicken’s namesake from Kusanagi and he has Respect). Yata figures if he wants to restore the heart he needs help and figures the best guy for the job would be that demigod who took the heart in the first place. There’s no story saying what happened to Fushimi after he lost the heart though, so Yata decides he’ll just trust his gut and the ocean to take him to the right place. He ends up washed up on an island with a skinny tattooed nerd in glasses glaring down at him and asking him if he even knows how to sail, what kind of moron goes out on the ocean without knowing how to work a boat.

Yata immediately jumps up like listen asshole I’m new at this and anyway who says you could do any better. The guy clicks his tongue and says that he could but he doesn’t have a boat, he’s been marooned on this island for ages and he’s not interested in company. Yata’s like good because I don’t want to keep you company but that’s when he notices that one of the guy’s tattoos is moving, which is really weird. The guy glares down at his tattoo and tells Yata that the tattoos are of his so-called ‘exploits’ and Yata realizes that he’s staring at demigod Fushimi. Yata asks Fushimi to help him out but Fushimi’s like not my problem, he’s not interested in the troubles of humans because it’s not like they have any interest in him, after all. Maybe in the stories Fushimi’s always been treated like a semi-bad guy rather than a hero, like the things he’s given to humanity are always treated like accidents and he was actually trying to cause trouble. Yata tells him that for once he could do something to help people instead of being a jerk, saying he has the heart of Weismann and if they can restore it to where it belongs all the darkness sweeping the land will be swept away. Fushimi looks just interested enough to distract Yata so he can steal Yata’s boat, Yata immediately runs after him and Fushimi tries to toss him off the boat only for the ocean to kindly deposit Yata back on it. Yata gives Fushimi this smirk like see, you can’t leave me and Fushimi rolls his eyes because okay I can’t get rid of you but I’m still not helping.

So then the two of them have to go on an epic journey to restore the heart. In order for Fushimi to reach full power he needs his magic knives so they have to find those first and on the way Yata learns that Fushimi’s not really a god by birth, he was thrown into the sea by his asshole parents who didn’t want him and the goddess of the sea made him a demigod, Fushimi assumes just because even she didn’t want him and this way it got him out of the sea. During the quest to retrieve the knives Yata ends up helping Fushimi multiple times, like maybe at one point Fushimi gets injured by some bad guys after the heart and the wound is poisoned so he has to ride out the fever and he’s shocked and confused to find Yata by his side taking care of him the whole time. Yata figures that Fushimi’s an asshole but he’s also kinda cool. As they get closer to where Weismann is supposed to be sleeping though Fushimi keeps getting more reluctant because he fucked this up once and what if he does it again. The small sparkling bespectacled man on one of his tattoos keeps giving him encouraging sign language pep talks while Yata has some long talks with chicken Mikoto because he has to bare his soul to someone and the chicken’s there, okay.

They reach the island of Dresden and that’s when the two of them are attacked by Colorless. Yata tries to fight back against Colorless and is almost killed, Fushimi freaks out because maybe he didn’t even steal the heart to begin with, it was lost during like a seaquake and Fushimi tried to retrieve it to show he wasn’t useless and failed and now here he’s going to fail again and the only person who was ever precious to him will be destroyed. He abandons Yata, claiming that he doesn’t care about restoring the heart and probably finds something of Yata’s to set on fire out of spite (“There goes your oar, Misaki.” “Fuck you Saruhiko I need that to steer!”). Yata’s all heartbroken and angry but then the spirits of his ancestors and Totsuka rally around him and it gives him the courage to go try again, along with his trusty chicken. Fushimi sees Yata in danger and tiny tattoo Munakata just gives him this significant look, Fushimi sighs and goes running to save Yata. Together they reach Dresden island but can’t find the sleeping Weismann. Fushimi turns to look at Colorless and tells Yata to place the heart in the spot on the forehead of the fox mask that covers Colorless’s face. When Yata does the evil god’s body changes and he reawakens as Weismann, thanking Fushimi and Yata for saving him and reversing all the blight that covered the land. In the end Yata drags Fushimi back to his island where everyone can now join Fushimi’s tattoo in doting on him and loving him.

Hope Chest

Three smoking suns
nested in a wooden box
are what is left of our
legless poem.

No comet tails
or stardust in our sleeves:
only light, bleeding thick
and slow over a horizon

made of bus stops,
cold mornings,
the grind and rattle of
kitchen dumpsters,
cracked teacups,
electric signs
dark before noon.

Turn the short hand
of your numberless clock
to twelve. Press your body
into these dirty sheets
and let the hours
     move, melt, mend.

The day had been restful for Uriel, but now they were flying under the cover of the night, while most of town slept away. However, while drifting several feet over the building of Salem, the little angel noticed a particular town member up and about- a jester, they guessed, from his clothes. Curious, they glided down closer to him, only to stop and hesitate several yards away. Uriel ended up waiting on a window ledge several feet away, and hoped the jester would see them. (salems-tiny-uriel)

For a moment he believes he is truly alone. The night had gone still, and he feels the creaking of his bones will drive him gradually insane- at least until the sun was able to peek over the horizon and the first few town members would come out to make their rounds.

He inhales shakily, watching the dust particles dance around in the pale light of the room- he needed some kind of light, it was imperative.
A flutter appears near his window, and for a moment he doesn’t want to look- he feels like if he follows the movement of it then it will attack him– but he never learns, he never will learn, and he looks.

A soft… glowing thing? He believes the aura to be a trick of his mind, but it’s so small and soft and gentle that he can’t help himself, and he stands and wanders to the window frame to meet whatever little light had come his way. His mind begs for it to not be fake.

H-Hello?” He whispers to the tiny being, a little unsure of himself as he does so.

“Party til you pass out, drink til’ you’re dead.
Dance all night til you can’t feel your legs”
We are done with giving a fuck.

—  the things i could never tell you

You’re so far from me and it isn’t supposed to hurt but it does. Sometimes I imagine the earth folding like a map so I can stride across it. Jump over the horizon and get to you. In another world we are neighbors but I worry that in another world I don’t value every word like I do here. Everything from you matters. In another world we are together. I picture the land folding like hands in prayer and you here. We could move the mountains themselves if only for love.

“Jack Zimmermann, your feet are freezing!” Bittle says, squirming away from him across the bed.

Jack follows and pins him, reflecting Bittle’s own grin back down at him. “I think you have me confused with someone.”

Bittle’s brow furrows. “No, I’m pretty sure I know whose icicles are pressed against my–”

“It’s Bittle now,” Jack says. “No Zimmermanns here.”

Bittle’s face clears like the sun coming over the horizon. He rolls his eyes and laughs, pulls Jack to him. “You’re ridiculous.”

Jack goes easily, the dawn of a new day. “You said yes.”

“I did,” Bittle says, lips curving against Jack’s. “I do.”

MOON TRAIL

Here we have a time lapse image of a full Moon rising over Skiathos Island, Greece. You will notice that the Moon subtends the same angle of the sky throughout its ascent and it does not change size from when it creeps over the horizon to when it takes centre stage in the sky. What does change however, is the colour; from red to orange to yellow to white.

YOI Fandom needs to chill

Recently, in the Yuri on Ice Fandom, a new possible ship has made it’s way over the horizon and it has a lot of people getting all up in arms to either man it or sink it.

Yeah, I’m talking about yurabek (otayuri? orio? yurbek? herofairy? fairyhero?).- whatever ship name that is decided for Yuri(o) x Otabek

Now, a lot of people are excited because, finally, Yurio has found himself someone who he can get along with that doesn’t make him either a) want to physically harm them, b) makes him feel self-conscious/self-loathing, c) annoys him or d) isn’t his grandpa. Which is wonderful as it’s always good to find that one person who you don’t feel the need to keep your guards around. Someone who sees you as you see yourself and who just wants you to shine in your own way. And, tbh, Yurio NEEDS that someone, someone who’s closer to his age, who he can connect with because he has a lot of pressure on him (from his peers, his mentors, fans, and himself) to succeed in a sport that is very, very technical and stressful. I don’t ice skate, but even I can tell how much effort you have to put into it TO JUST KEEP YOURSELF BALANCED ON THE ICE. So here’s a dude- a very handsome and sweet dude- who just shows up and is shown to be very interested in Yurio, not because he wants to antagonise him or belittle him, but because he sees him as an equal. A boy becoming a man he respects. Otabek wants to get to know Yurio, and only him, because he can relate to him and the fans want to see them together, forever.

However, as the other half of the fandom keeps on pointing out, “YURIO IS ONLY 15, a child (by American Standards)!!!!!!! OTABEK IS 18, AN ADULT (by American Standards)!!!! That’s paedophilia!!! (by American Standards)” Which, totally makes sense because- by American standards- that’s disgusting. I admit, I, for one, am definitely not for adults dating children and I do follow American standards. So, I’m actually happy people are getting all up in arms over this, but there’s an issue among fandoms that make their arguments sort of moot to me, even though I agree with them, and it’s a two part-er:


1) it’s only disgusting because people are immediately assuming, on both sides, that the romantic relationship that would form between Yurio and Otabek can only be a sexual one. Like, there is an unwritten Law, forced upon us by society, that in order for two people to be “dating” they need to have sexual relations. This is the first mistake fandoms make because, dating doesn’t and should’ve have to be mainly about sex. Dating is about forming a connection, an emotional bond. The way people form those bonds differ and it doesn’t need to be through sex. Otabek and Yurio can date and wait until they’re both consenting adults to do the do, or not because a relationship doesn’t and shouldn’t be built mostly on sex!!

2) keeping in mind that people seem to think that sex is the only way to be in a “romantic” relationship- the second issue of fandoms is that fans are completely A-OK with two or more UNDERAGED CHARACTERS HAVING SEX WITH EACH OTHER. I will never, ever, understand how people will get upset about an adult having, consensual, sex with a minor, but two minors having, consensual, sex is totally fine?? The thing that makes people squeamish about couples with big age gaps is that it’s a minor having sexual relations, and that’s ick. So how is it not so ick when all the parties are minors?? “Oh, well minors don’t understand the full meaning of what they’re consenting too, which is why adult-minor relationships are disgusting.” Well, damn, so what you’re saying is that, even though a minor can’t truly consent with an adult, somehow they can when it’s with someone their own age?? And people need to chill with this whol “18 means you’re an adult now!” like, no, not really? You don’t suddenly become worldly and wise the split second you age from 17 to 18 (believe me, ask literally anyone. You will still feel like a child) so, how can people get all up in arms over a relationship where one of the parties is 18?? (tbh, ages 18-20 should be called preadult. like, we have preteens? Yeah, preadults. You think you are an adult, but, truly, you know jack shite and can’t do jack shite and you just want your mom/dad to keep doing everything for you)

So with those two issues in mind, I really cannot fault people for wanting to ship (a very healthy) relationship between yurio and otabek. I didn’t even cover how each country has it’s own laws of adulthood age and age of consent (which are two VERY DIFFERENT THINGS- like, Japan’s adulthood age is 20 but the age of consent is 13. Yeah, let that sink in.) so be thankful for that (I’ve seen a lot of posts have covered that already, so I don’t need to delve into it)

I’m gonna finish with this: Fans are gonna ship what they want, how they want, and what they don’t want and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop them. If the Yurio/Otabek ship really irks you, block the ship tag or ignore the ship posts. Likewise, if you ship them and see others don’t, do not be assholes and shove it in their faces. Bottomline, be respectful of each others ships and let’s continue to love this fandom.

At first, she was disgusted by him and his apparent greed and recklessness… [But] like the sun rising over Earth’s horizon, her perception began to change. Carswell Thorne wasn’t a heartless scoundrel at all. If anyone bothered to get to know him, they would see that he was compassionate and chivalrous. He was exactly the kind of hero Cress had been dreaming about her entire life.
