Through Dangers Untold ch 1 (Elucien Labyrinth AU)

Elain has made a grave mistake and wished her sisters away to the dangerous realm of the goblins. To get them back, she’ll have to navigate a maddening labyrinth—and go toe-to-toe with its powerful, enigmatic ruler. Elain finds herself drawn to the red-haired Goblin King, but is he the tragic, lovesick prince from her mother’s stories, or a wicked faerie who’s only toying with her?

Their mother did not spend a great deal of time with the Archeron sisters, even before she died. Their father was in charge of their education, and he passed it on to a rotating series of tutors; the nanny minded them at play, the cooks fed them, the dogs cuddled with them when they were upset.

But mama Archeron did one thing, often in her elaborate party dresses, putting them to bed while her guests laughed and drank downstairs: she told stories. Elain remembers them well, remembers how often little Feyre fell asleep halfway through, how Nesta would sulk and declare that she didn’t need stories, she was too old for them, and would end up listening raptly by the end anyway.

She remembers one story best of all, would request it over and over again.

“The Goblin King,” her mother says, her beautiful painted mouth tugging into a smile. “Was one of the High Fae, a very long time ago.”

Not So Berry Legacy Challenge

Do you like the rainbow? Do you like the idea of playing with berry Sims but hate berry Sims? Do you want to mess around with aspects of the game you’ve never used before? Boy, do I have the challenge for you!

Welcome to the Not So Berry Legacy Challenge, a ten generation legacy with a focus on bright colors and new experiences.

Basic Rules:

  1. Each heir must represent the color of the generation (i.e. hair, makeup, clothing), but brightly colored skin is not necessary (these aren’t actually berry Sims, that’s the joke)
  2. The colors of the spouses don’t matter as they aren’t part of the challenge. Unless otherwise stated you can do whatever you please with them.
  3. Money cheats can be used, but not excessively. Suggestion: use freerealestate for your first home, but no cheats afterward.
  4. You may live wherever you please unless something is specified in the rules of a generation.
  5. Every generation is supposed to complete both the career and aspiration of the heir unless explicitly stated otherwise.
  6. Keep the lifespan on normal.
  7. If you play this challenge and want to share it with us, go ahead and post with #notsoberry so we can see!

My good friend @alwaysimming​ and I kind of created this challenge on accident, but I think it turned out pretty great. We wanted to make something that forced us to play with parts of the game we’ve never explored before. Hopefully you’ll have fun too. You can follow our gameplay on @mintiphresh​ and @lea-fey​ (pronounced “minty fresh” and “leafy”)!

Imagine Victor's reaction if he wakes up one day and Yuuri's just gone on a twitter rant about how wonderful Victor is cause he got emotional at night while he was asleep.

Declaration of Love

Victor yawned as he carefully slipped out of bed, careful to not wake his fiancé.

It was a well-known fact that Yuuri and himself were different in so many ways, but Victor found that the most common difference between them was there sleeping habits.

Yuuri was a night owl, spending hours after he had fallen asleep on his phone, or reading, or playing some handhold game.

Victor was a morning person, always had and probably always would be. He woke with the sun and normally took Makkachin for a run if the old girl was up for it, though he had noticed that the aging poodle was starting to prefer a morning sleep-in with Yuuri than a run lately.

Victor liked getting up early, like being greeted each morning with Yuuri’s sleeping face cuddled into his side. Like being the one that woke Yuuri up with gentle kisses all over his face.

He was a sucker for Yuuri, what could he say?

Victor left the bedroom, giving Makkachin a good morning pat before leaving the sleeping pair alone to get a little more sleep.

Victor took one look outside before concluding he wasn’t going for a run this morning, it seemed a snowstorm had come in thick and hard last night, leaving the streets in a foot of snow.

With his morning run out of the question, Victor got to work on thinking up something to cook for breakfast.

Victor could cook, much to everyone’s surprise. As an athlete who had spent years maintaining a tight diet, Victor had learnt to cook.

When he just started skating professionally, he hadn’t had the money to play for someone to cook him food, resulting in him learning to cook proper, healthy food.

Yuuri had just finished competing in the Grand Prix finals, coming out first with a gold metal this time, having won against Yurio by a mere two and half point.

With yet another gold metal under his belt, Victor decided that Yuuri deserved a little bit of a treat.

He made himself a quick coffee to enjoy before he started on the big breakfast idea he had decided on.

He leant against the kitchen bench with his coffee in one hand and his phone in the other, pausing when he saw the number of notifications on his Twitter app.

Sure, he was Twitter famous, but he normally didn’t have some many notifications waiting for him in the morning. He normally had this many when he was out and about and had stopped for a picture with a fan or something.

He clicked the media app and felt a light blush dust his cheeks at all the messages he had been tagged in during the night.

All of which were by his currently sleeping fiancé.

Yuuri Katsuki @yuurikatsuki
@v-nikiforov is the most handsome and beautiful person in the world. I don’t know what I would do without him

Yuuri Katsuki @yuurikatsuki
I still can’t believe that @v-nikiforov and I are getting married. Victor keeps suggesting Spring in Japan under the Sakura trees.

Yuuri Katsuki @yuurikatsuki
No @christophe-gc there will not be a stripper pole at the wedding.

Yuuri Katsuki @yuurikatsuki
This is secret information everyone: @v-nikiforov snores. Don’t tell anyone

Yuuri Katsuki @yuurikatsuki
I sometimes wonder how I got so lucky, especially when he smiles at me.

Yuuri Katsuki @yuurikatsuki
I cannot confirm nor deny that I have been practicing a quad axel. @v-nikiforov says that the quad axel is a dangerous jump.

Yuuri Katsuki @yuurikatsuki
@v-nikiforov has the brightest blue eyes. I will fight anyone that argues with me.

Yuuri Katsuki @yuurikatsuki
Yes, I am utterly and hopelessly in love with @v-nikiforov. I wouldn’t know what to do with myself if something happened to him or us.

Victor quickly put down his coffee and phone down and hurried back into the bedroom to spoil his sleeping fiancé with cuddles and kisses for his adorable late-night declaration of love, there for the world to see.

God, he was head-over-heels for this man.
