Prompt: smell

Amortentia, the most powerful love potion in the world.

[“It’s supposed to smell differently to each of us, according to what attracts us” - 
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince]

If You Could Forgive Me

King Oropher finds you and Prince Thranduil together in bed and it infuriates him.

Warnings: Oropher being a real dick, like wowza, light nsfw themes, protective!Thranduil (that’s the opposite of a warning), Oropher yells at you and Thrans all like bro fight me, you do get hurt tho (Oropher slaps you and thran loses it), humiliation…
I think that’s all? There’s probably some more I can’t think of…

::

The Prince had his lips locked on Y/N’s, sealing a deep kiss. His hands gently touched her neck as his tongue touched hers.
She lets out a soft moan, and Thranduil smirks.

Y/N smiles. “Oh shut it.”

“Mmm, as you wish.” Thranduil’s large, warm hands traced underneath her light robe. He felt her soft skin and he let out a moan.

Y/N touches her lover’s cheekbone, ear, down his jaw, and gently through a few strands of his long, white hair.

Thranduil was ready to take off Y/N’s robe when suddenly the door slams open.

“Get her away from him.” It was the King.

He did not fancy Y/N, a soldier, he wished Thranduil to wed an elf of higher rank.

The guards hesitated. Thranduil tried cover Y/N with his large frame.

Oropher yelled at them again. Y/N immediately felt two rough hands on her arms as the guards dragged her off the bed. They force the maiden to stand up in front of Oropher. Her robe was hanging little off her shoulders, nothing was exposed but she felt glared and hated upon as Oropher’s eyes filled with hatred.

“What do you think you are doing with this elf in your bed, my son?” The king asks turning his gaze from hers and turned to his son who stood from the bed.

“Father! Do not harm her! She had nothing to do with this!” Thranduil spoke loudly. He treads to Y/N’s side and takes her sweaty hand in his.

“You’d dare touch a lowly elf soldier instead of a high Silvan maiden?”

“Yes. I would. I love her father, and I would see that I would be with her for the rest of my days instead of anyone else you bring to me.” Thranduil straightens up and squeezes her hand.

“Thran…” Y/N tries to whisper.

“Silence, whore!” He strikes her. She lets out a squeal as she felt his nails lightly dig into her cheek. Oropher orders the guards to drop her.

She fell to the ground, holding her face and did not notice her prince lunging towards his father.

“You dare lay a hand on her!”
Thranduil is suddenly held back by the guards. “Get your hands… off me!” He struggled to get out if their grip.

Thranduil wanted to kill the guards holding him, he wanted to strangle his farher, but most of all he wanted to take his elf in his arms, kiss her tears, heal her wound and take her away with him. Away from here, away from his father. He feels his knees being kicked, and he kneels on the ground, right next to where Y/N’s laying. His eyes grew wide upon hearing her small breaths coming out her quivering mouth. She held her hand tightly to her face. If she was bleeding he did not know.

“Oh, Y/N.” The elf prince’s voice was laced with worry. He looked at her, his eyes were wide with a deep concern.

“Look at her. A eleven soldier couldn’t even take a small slap to the face before she’s on the ground, sobbing like a child.” Thranduil glared at his father. “Tell me Thranduil what exactly do you see in her as opposed to all the other maidens I bring here? They are here for you, you know.”

“None of them want to be. None of those elves want to set foot here, being forced to marry some elf prince they had never seen before. Y/N is-”

“You think you love her? You think you love this weeping snake?”

“Do not call her such names!” Thranduil could feel his face getting warm. “Her name is Y/N. She is a captain of your guard. She is my longest friend and she will be the person I marry!” Thranduil shouts.

Y/N had finally opened her E/C eyes upon hearing what he had said. She knew she loved him. She knew. But of course there was that tiny little voice at the back of her mind that tried to prove her otherwise. Y/N places a hand on Thranduil’s thigh and looks at him.

“Thranduil, please. Don’t do this on my behalf. Your father is right,” She hated these words. “You deserve someone else. Not me. I’m sorry Thran.”

He looks at Y/N. “Don’t say that-”

“Enough!” Oropher raises his voice and drowns out any other sound. “Guards take her to the dungeons. Let no one see her.”

“What? No, my king, please, forgive me. I do not want to be sent there. I’ll do anything. I beg of you!” Y/N cries as one guard takes her out of the room as the other holds her prince. She tries to ignore his desperate pleas and screams.

I’ll probably do part 2 but we’ll see.

anonymous asked:

id love a little fic about dex/nursey dropping their gloves in a game because someone said something about the other. yknow, just craving a little hockey-induced anger.

(this is part of the NHLAU)

Nursey is a professional hockey player. He has been skating almost as long as he’s been walking, and he doesn’t remember a time before he was playing hockey. He’s won a Stanley Cup. He’s won a fucking gold medal. He has an A on his jersey. He’s played a lot of hockey, is the point.

He should be essentially immune to hockey-related boners.

He shouldn’t be turned on by the smear of blood on knuckles. His breath shouldn’t hitch at the sight of a split lip. He shouldn’t squirm in his stall as he replays the memory of gloves dropping and fists flying.

Or maybe he should, considering the blood is covering up a pattern of freckles he knows too well, and the lip that’s split has been pressed against his neck too many times to count. It’s okay, he thinks, because the gloves that were dropped belong to his husband, and it’s okay to have husband-related boners.

It’s especially okay to have hockey-husband-related boners when your husband was fighting for you.

“My enforcer,” Nursey coos when he comes into the locker room, smiling at Dex sitting in his stall, pressing a bloodied rag to his lip. He can joke through the locker room and the media scrum until he can get Dex home behind a locked door.

“Prince Charming, over here,” Rhino laughs, hitting Dex in the shin when he passes. “You can tell Poindexter that he’s a scumbag and that a PeeWee could out-stickhandle him and he’ll take it with a smile, but tell him his husband’s not the prettiest person you’ve ever laid eyes on, and the motherfucker will rock your shit.”

“No fucking way you fought for this non,” Jase laughs, shoving a hand in Nursey’s face. Nursey’s happy that Jase is partaking in the chirping. Rookies being scared of Dex only inflates Dex’s ego.

“He had to defend my honor!” Nursey shouts. “What was it he called me, Dexy?”

“Twinkle-toes,” Dex admits, shrugging because at this point he accepts the chirping instead of fighting it.

The room explodes. It’s a good cover for the way Nursey can’t keep his eyes off the smear of blood on the shoulder of Dex’s jersey.

“Later,” Nursey whispers once the noise and attention has died down, “I’m going to thank you properly.”

Hey!! Love your blog! Do you have any sterek tangled au? Like where Derek is Flynn and Stiles is Rapunzel?

“Stiles,” Derek yelled, “let down your hair!”

He flinched back when Mother walked across the room towards the window, an angry snarl on her face as she yanked on his hair and threw it out of the tower. The familiar feeling of someone climbing up his hair put a shiver down his spine, a sick feeling bloomed his chest as he knew he couldn’t do a damn thing to warn Derek.

Mother sighed and tisked softly, “now look what you’ve done Stiles. Don’t worry dear, our secret will die with him.”

Gleam and Glow by redhoodedwolf

(1/1 I 2,204 I Teen)

Derek peeked up at Stiles, caught him staring, and smirked a little. Stiles shrugged, unashamed. That seemed to only spur Derek on, and his smirk widened.
“So, Mikolaj Stilinski —”
Stiles winced visibly, though the pronunciation was flawless, as was everything else about Derek.
“Hm?” Derek hummed, getting Stiles to crack a smile at the teasing tone Derek carried. Derek raised an eyebrow, silently asking for more. More of what Stiles wasn’t sure, but he could assume.
He waved a hand in the air, as if brushing the subject away. “Nah, you don’t want to hear the sad tale of poor orphan Mikolaj. It’s a bit of a downer.”
Derek raised both of his eyebrows in a challenge and scooted closer to Stiles on the log. He cocked his head to the side, like a dog, obviously interested in hearing something.

And You’re Watching Disney Channel by reptilianraven

(1/1 I 10,189 I Teen)

Of course he isn’t in a normal story. Of course Stiles doesn’t dream like a normal person. Of fucking course Stiles had to dream up a Disney (?) induced fairytale nightmare where Derek is the prince (?) and Stiles is the princess (?) and in the face of this realization, Derek would have honestly preferred the zombie apocalypse dream.

-

A spell traps Stiles in his brain and they have to go in and get him out.

Rapunzel Rapunzel let down your… dude! you’re a guy?! by star_fields

(9/? I 11,689 I General)

Stiles and his friends get sent to another dimension to save the day yet again. But can they?

Or

The one where Derek is a prince locked in a tower and Stiles freaks out.

Stilespunzel, the Tale by Yassoda

(12/? I 30,458 I Mature)

Stiles has been locked up in a tower since forever. He really wants to go out and explore the world, but his father won’t let him. Enter asshole-ish scary robber guy, and a stolen crown. This is definitely Stiles’ chance!

The Green Island

Parring: Peter Pan X Reader

Word: 1421

Warning: none

Summary: Y/N is Peter’s Lost girl, and he isn’t exactly the boyfriend Y/N expected.

A/N: i’m not dead! I know i should write the next part of 3317, don’t worry, i will soon, i just really wanted to write this!

The stick moved easy over the ground, drawing a line from the end in the sand. The lines became a castle as they so often had before. Peter would soon come back and destroy it, as he so often had before.

You sighed, and looked around at the camp. Some of the boys were cooking dinner, some hunted, some fooled around, and Peter was out doing god knows what. He did that a lot, he was almost never at the camp anymore.

“it has its purpose” he had said when you had asked. “don’t ask again”

And you hadn’t. Not because you were scared, no. You had never been scared at Peter, not like anyone else had, he treasured you. Nobody dared curl a hair on your head, everybody knew what had happened to the boy who by accident had hit you with an arrow, sometimes you could still hear his scream in the dark night. Every time you asked Peter to let him go, forgive him, it was just an accident!

“nobody hurts my queen” Peter always said, and kissed your forehead.

You stood up, and started walking out of the camp. Peter wasn’t here, surely you could leave for just five minutes.

You knew the forest almost as well as Peter. All the times you had snuck out here, just for him to go after you, to spend a little quality time with your king.

The forest went on and on, but you didn’t mind, why should you? The forest was a nice place, it was as if even the plants was afraid of what Peter could do to them, and not dared hurt you.

A voice cut through the silence on Neverland, and you followed the sound. It didn’t take many steps for you, before you stood in front of a group.

“hello” you said, all of them turning to you. There were five, a woman with long blonde hair, a woman with dark shoulder length, and one with short black hair. There were also two men, a blonde and a dark haired, the last one had a hook instead of one of his hands. Captain Hook no doubt, Peter had told you about him, you had never meet him however, until now.

“welcome to Neverland! “you said with a smile, but none of the adults returned it.

“who are you? “the women with shoulder length dark hair said, no doubt a leader.

“I’m Y/N, and you are? “you asked, looking at them.

“wait, Y/N? “the blonde one said and took a step towards you. “as in The Golden Castle Y/N? “

“I’m sorry to disappoint, but I only lived in one place before this island, and it was no castle for sure” you said with a smile. Again, nobody returned it. You waited for an answer to your earlier question, but they didn’t seem to want to give it.

“so, what brings you to Neverland? “you asked. “it’s not most people who choose this place for a holiday”

“it doesn’t concern you” the one with the shoulder length hair said.

“we’re looking for someone” the women with short black hair said, and you nodded. You had a feeling of who it was. “maybe you can help us, do you know where Peter Pan is? “

You opened your mouth to response, but never got to. A loud noise made you turn around, and you saw a lot of birds flying up from the forest, their voices ringing through the trees.

“that’s my sign” you said, and looked back at them. “sorry, but it was nice to meet you! “

 

The five adults watched you disappearing through the trees, before four of them turned to the last.

“what’s the golden castle? “Mary-Margaret asked Emma.

“it’s a fairy-tale” Emma said.

“about that girl there? “Regina asked, and Emma nodded. “well, tell us! “

“it’s about a poor girl called Y/N, that lives in a village with her younger sister” Emma started telling. “but one day an evil witch finds them, and kills her younger sister. Y/N is of course crushed when she finds out, and she runs out in the woods, where a prince finds her. He gets sympathy, and offers her a place at the castle, but of course the prince falls in love with her, her with him, and they get married”

“a poor girl that marries a prince and become princess, where have I seen that before?” Regina said sarcastic.

“that’s the point of this fairy-tale, this is the beginning” Emma said, and the forest became quiet, as if everything waited for Emma to continue the story.

 

“where have you been?! “Peter asked angry, and you turned around to watch him. You were on your way back, but of course Peter wanted to talk private first.

“I took a walk” you said, not looking him in the eyes. “nothing happened, I’m fine”

He held a hand out, and turned your head to look at him. his forest green eyes meet yours Y/E/C, and suddenly it was just you two.

“I don’t know what I would do if something happened to you… “he said in a quiet voice.

“I know” you replied, and he leaned down to let his lips meet yours.

 

“Y/N is not what people expect of a princess” Emma continued her fairy-tale. “she wants to go on adventures, explore the world, but the prince won’t let her. He keeps her in the castle with nothing to do but what he expects princesses to do, stare at gold”

“he wants princesses to sit and stare at gold all day? “David asked, and Emma nodded.

“well, I’m glad you’re not like that” Mary-Margaret said to her husband, trying to sound joking.

“how does she escape? “Regina asked, making them all look at Emma.

“she doesn’t”

 

“Peter stop” you said, showing his hand off your arm.

“no! “he said. “you can’t leave this camp, I won’t let you! It’s not safe! “

“I can take care of myself! “you said angry. This argument happened far too often, and you both knew exactly what the other would say next.

“but you don’t need to! “he said, following the script down to every detail. “the boys and i can protect you, you don’t have to do it yourself! “

“you can’t keep me a prisoner! “you said angrily, knowing this wouldn’t last much longer.

“oh yes, I can! “he said, and you widened your eyes. He had never threatened you before.

“what? “you asked in a whisper, not being sure you had heard correctly.

“I said” he took a step towards you, so you had to tilt your head back to look him in the eyes. “yes. I. can! “

 

“what do you mean she doesn’t escape? “Mary-Margaret asked.

“I mean she doesn’t escape” Emma said, looking at her mother. She had never liked the story, and had felt relived when there was no Y/N in Storybrooke, now it turned out she was here. “she wants to, but right before she does it, the prince lock her up in the castle”

“but all fairy-tales has a happy ending! “David argued. He had always trusted his story to have a happy ending, to live happily ever after, that was how it should be.

“except this one” Emma said, her eyes dark by the thought of the story.

 

“LET ME OUT! “you screamed, but nobody answered. The wooden bars were rough under your hands, the cage swinging in the air. You could see two lost boys on the ground, but they were too far away for you to recognize them.

It wouldn’t make any difference, all the boys feared Peter, no one would dare to cross him. Before it had been nice, feeling so safe, but now you were a prisoner, trapped in a cage like all of his’ enemies.

“Please… “you begged quiet, letting go of the bars, feeling a single tear run down your cheek.

You had never been afraid of Peter, why should you? He had only protected you. He still wanted to protect you, and he thought he did just that. But you didn’t feel protected, you felt scared. Scared of the boy you loved.

Oh, what a horrible feeling. Fearing someone you loved. Wanting to run so far away you possible could, but also wanting to throw yourself into their arms. Oh, what a horrible feeling, being trapped on the green island you once had ruled with your king, calling it your kingdom.

Meeting Ardyn



 Time for everyone’s favorite Gucci Hobo to make an appearance! Ardyn is such a tough character to write! 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You hardly had time to react as your felt the hand wrapped around loosely around your neck, as you immediately tense, head and eyes forward as you knew the person behind you. When Ravus had slammed Gladiolus into the car, it stunned you all, leaving you open to the grab. The only noise you couldn’t choke down was the small whimper as you felt yourself be tugged as you were dragged along with Ardyn to stand before the others.


Noctis

“Y/n,” Noctis gasped in shock, noticing the horror on your face, “Let her go!”

“Noct,” You whisper softly, gasping as the red head man leaned forward, his other arm going in a loose embrace around your chest, as he had the height advantage on you, as you leaned away from him as much as possible.

“Young Prince, you seem to be astrayed. Yet I have to admit that this one is a special little treat.” Ardyn chuckled in your ear, as you turned your head away  from him, “She is actually quite the little beauty, isn’t she?”

“I said let her go.” Noctis hissed, summoning his sword, as the others quickly mimicked his moves, ready to go on the offensive.

Ardyn chuckle only seemed to get louder, as he moved his hand to grab ahold of your chin, as he turned you to face him, the arm holding you in the tight embrace moving so that he caressed your face with back of his hand, his lips barely ghosting over your own.

You flinched away expecting for his hand to feel slimy, yet instead it felt extremely hot to the touch, almost as if it was going to burn your face. “Noct…”

“Oh sweet little thing, why are you so scared, you handsome prince is right here.” Ardyn replied, as he jerked your head forward to Noctis, his other hand going back to your neck, as he begun to apply pressure to your windpipe.

“You bastard!” Noctis yelled as he rushed forward.

“Noctis, please stop!” You yell around the pressure on our throat, only for the Prince to quickly halt at your cry. “Don’t, it not worth it…” You let out a shriek as Ardyn wrapped a hand in your hair, snapping your head back.

“Smart girl.” Ardyn chuckled, as he put more pressure on your neck, as you begun to slowly feel yourself losing consciousness. “After all what good are you to me dead.”

You felt your eyes getting heavy as you whimpered softly, your eyes locked with Noctis, only to gasp as you felt Ardyn’s hand leave your throat, as he shoved your body toward the others. You somehow managed to stay on your feet, as you stumbled back to your side of the battle field. Placing up a battle front, as you summoned your weapon to a shaky hand, trying to shake the black from the side of your vision.

“Don’t think this will be the last time we meet Prince, as we are not done just yet.” Ardyn chuckled.

You all watched as the two men left just a suddenly as they came. You heard a soft gasp, only realizing it had come from your own lips as you collapsed to your knees. Your body felt so weak, you hearing went mute, almost as if your head had been dunked underwater, as you heard the others muffled call your name in concern.

Closing your eyes to stop the rush, you gasped as you felt someone pick you up, managing to crack open your eyes as you noticed it was Noctis who had picked you up, carrying you close. Only allowing yourself to drift away once you were safely in his arms within the backseat of the Regalia.


Prompto

“Aren’t you the cutest little thing?” Ardyn chuckled, his hand resting on our shoulder, as his other pinched your cheek.

You made to pull away, for the hand on your shoulder to grip ahold of you tighter causing you to flinch.

“Now, Prince you wouldn’t want anything to happen to this little cutie would you?” Ardyn chuckled, as he pressed his cheek against your own, as you swallowed a gag.

“Noct,” You muttered softly, as you tried attempted to have the man follow where you were looking at Prompto who had summoned his gun while Ardyn begun rambling. Getting a soft nod from the Prince as you locked eyes with Prompto, you trusted him and you knew he couldn’t, no wouldn’t miss.

Prompto quickly took stance as he fired the bullet clearly aimed for the man beside you, shocking Ardyn to let go of you, as you brought around own summoned weapon to slash at the man, the same time Noctis rushed forward, causing Ardyn to jump back in defense.

“My, my you all know how to catch someone off guard don’t you, quite the trick you have there.”

Both you and Noctis jumped back to regroup with the others,  weapons all raised as you stared the redhead down. Glancing down as you felt a hand slide in your own, only to see that Prompto had grabbed your hand tightly, the other still holding his gun pointed at Ardyn.

A stern look over that freckled face, a look you had never seen grace the normal sunshine. He was absolutely pissed, and if given the signal he was ready to fire away.

You couldn’t blame him.

“Shall we continue this at a later date. Until then, adieu.” The man chuckled.

You all waited, as the man disappeared with Ravus, only than releasing a sigh you didn’t know you were holding, yet your nerves still shook horribly in the arm that Prompto had a hold of. The moment his gun disappeared the blonde pulled you into his arms, holding you tightly, only than did the entire situation dawn on you, as you felt yourself grow weak, happy that Prompto was there to keep you up right.

What was that creature?


Gladiolus

“I think now you would like to hear me out.” Ardyn stated.

You recall, rushing to Gladiolus’ side after Ravus shoved him away with relative ease alongside Prompto, only to feel a pressure at your back, and then a quick pulling movement to yourself. Now a strong pressure on your throat, as your hands fly up to the pressure. Your watering eyes strained to look at the others, only to notice the shock horror on their face.

“Now, my dear don’t be so this way.” The deep voice chuckled before for you.

You made to retort, as it only came out as a  wheeze as the man slowly raised you from the ground, you legs kicking to gain purchase, as your fingernails dug into the fabric of his coat. Using all your upper body strength to avoid being strangled by his horridly strong grip.

“Drop her, asshole!” Gladiolus barked, as he moved to rush forward with the others.

You let out a short scream, that was quickly cut off by Ardyn’s hand tighten harder around your windpipe, as you gurgled slightly. “Glad…”

“Yet than again we wouldn’t want our fun to end here so soon.” Ardyn chuckled, as he pulled you close so that he could stare you in the eye. Your eyes locking with the deep red, staring in shock at the black that begun to creep across his eye. “A shield should be more sturdy, wouldn’t you think?”

You forced the words out your mouth, as you felt his hand tighten, “Fuck…you.”

“Hm, seems you still have some fight. I enjoy that.”

You couldn’t even scream as he pulled you back, before tossing you forward, only able to grunt as you landed in Gladiolus’ out stretched arms.

“Y/n, are you alright?” Gladiolus’ inquired.

You couldn’t have him worry about you now, you didn’t want him to worry about you now. Your throat hurt, but you were determined to repay Ardyn back tenfold, along with his little pet Ravus, as you summoned your weapon as the tall man set you down. Only to watch as the two men turn walking away.

“Y/N,” Gladiolus called, as he turned to you, slowly rose your head with gentle fingers under your chin, letting out a growl.

You rose a tentative hand to your neck, flinching at the pain, knowing it was going to bruise something horrible, yet you needed to stop the rage rising in Gladiolus right now, “I’m fine, I promise, all I need is little potion.”

You watched as the fury slowly disappeared from his eyes, only to feel him embrace you tightly, pressing you against his chest. The moment seemed to break you, as you buried your face into his chest, clenching tightly to his shirt, as you promised yourself you weren’t crying.


Ignis

In the pull you hadn’t realized that you had closed your eyes, only when you stopped did your eyes snap open, as you realized what happened.

“Now, perhaps you’ll hear what I have to say.” Ardyn chuckled from behind you, as he twisted your right arm up and back, the pressure he was putting on it you felt your muscles scream in pain. “Should you follow everything I have to say, we can put this entire manner behind us all.”

Through the pain you glanced toward Ignis, his calm demeanor never seemed to faluter, yet you noticed the small movements only people intimate with the man would notice. His fingers flexed, as if to summon his daggers, or perhaps a spear, as his green eyes dashed around the battlefield analyzing everything.

“It would be rather fun to see how far you can get without your little nurse, wouldn’t that be fun.” Ardyn replied, as he slowly applied more pressure to your shoulder.

You weren’t sure if it was out of reflex, yet you rocked back your free left hand coming into contact with Ardyn’s cheek with a loud smack. Only to shriek as he grabbed the wrist that had dare strike his face, freeing you from his previous hold, now holding you in spot as you stared up into his eyes.

“I could end you here and now, little one without a second thought.”

“Y/n!” Noctis called, as you pulled weakly at the hold Ardyn had on your wrist. “What is it that you want?”

“Don’t give it to him, Noctis!” You yelled, “My life isn’t worth whatever he’s…” You were cut short as you felt a force against your right cheek, the pain rushing through face as you sank to your knees, wrist still within the man’s grip, you didn’t even have time to scream. He had hit you hard enough to throw off your equilibrium and causing a horrid ringing in your ears.

“Y/n!” Ignis called.

You turned watery eyes to the man, “I’m, i’m fine Iggy.”

“Perhaps next time we should have a more private setting.” Ardyn chuckled releasing you left hand, as you cradled it to your chest, checking for sprained and broken bones, at the moment it only seemed bruising. “With this I bow out, see to it that your nurse gets herself fixed up.”

As the man’s coat tails disappear from your view, you slowly stumbled to your feet, the ringing in your head still going full force. You forbid yourself from swooning, you absolutely forbid it. Yet even you knew with the strength he hit you with, he was holding back, and you were lucky he was otherwise…you didn’t want to think about it.

“Y/N!” Ignis gasped, as he appeared at your side, always on time you thought as your legs finally gave out.

“Are you okay, y/n?” Prompto asked, appearing on the other side, ever the concerning type.

“I’m fine, I’m fine, just some bruising.” You forcibly smile, despite the movement causing your face to hurt. “We should get going.”

“You’re in no shape to be walking,wrap your arm around my shoulder.” Ignis replied, as he placed a hand under the back of your knees, swiftly standing, jumping slightly, as Prompto reached out to make sure the man didn’t drop you.

“Prompto, would you mind grabbing an ice pack from the car.” You smile to the small blonde, knowing he wanted to be helpful but didn’t know how, resting your uninjured cheek against Ignis’ shoulder. “I’m not sure what that man is, but he’s not human.”

“For the moment let’s tend to your needs, my dear.”  Ignis replied, as he walked back to the car, Noctis already in the driver seat, allowing you to rest  in Ignis’ lap. The hold he had on your lower back tighten, almost to ensure that you were still there.

The dizziness was tenfold at this point, not wanting to sleep at fear of a concussion, you instead stared straight ahead, realize just what you were up against.

anonymous asked:

Gladio breaking up with his s/o before they're setting off on the account of knowing how dangerous it'll be even though he's crazy for them. But then Insomnia falls and he can't reach them and vice versa. During the 10 years of darkness they meet, Gladio still nursing a flame for his s/o. He finds his former s/o did move on but they never fell in love again. They never found anyone they connected with as well as they did with Gladio and tell him as such.

This was such a good idea Nonnie, I had fun writing it! Though I’m sorry it’s so long.I hope you enjoy!

Gladio x Reader
SFW
WC: 4160 

-

“What do you mean I can’t go with you?” 

The voice felt like a thousand knives piercing his heart. He had never heard so much pain in it before, even after their long time together, and it was all because of him. Gladio could hardly bare to look at you, your pained expression only plunging the knife in deeper.

“You heard me. I can’t let you go. It’s far too dangerous, there’s a chance that we won’t make it back alive. I can’t let you suffer the same fate.”

“Oh great, you can’t let me suffer that fate, but I have to be okay with you swanning off to your possible death?”

Gladio frowned, his gaze finally dropping to the floor. He knew that this was going to happen, that you wouldn’t just agree without a fight. It was one of the reasons he loved you so god damn much. Your spirt and passion were definitely what drew him to you, and then bam that was it. Like a moth drawn to a flame, he couldn’t deny his feelings. You were his partner, always there to lend an ear after a stressful day, to get feisty and stand up for yourself and sometimes even him, to stay together and just be. But now, when that connection might put you in danger? Never. Not on his watch.

“It’s my duty. It isn’t yours. I know you won’t understand-”

“Oh no I understand just fine Gladiolus. I understand.” There was venom in your words now, choosing to cling to anger rather than the crippling heart ache you knew was just lurking underneath your angry words.

“You don’t think I’ll last five minutes out there do you? So what, you’re just going to… to walk away from me? From us?”

Gladio winced at your words, as if they were causing him physical pain. It certainly felt like they were, right to his heart. All that training, and this person can get me defenceless and vulnerable in under five minutes

He dreaded saying what he had to next. He knew the anguish it would cause, for he would feel it too. He knew just what face they would make, knew that there surely could be no coming back from this.

But it’s my dutyAnd I can’t drag them down with me, it was never their choice. He tried to tell himself for the millionth time, none of those times ever making him feel even remotely better. Yet he still lifted his head to look you directly in your eyes as it was the least he could do. Your warm, bright eyes alight with such passion and anger…

Gods above he was really going to fucking miss you.

“I guess that I am. If it keeps you safe.”

You were stunned for a few seconds, frozen at the confirmation of your worst fears. But there it was. He was leaving you, and that was that. Gladio watched as the light dimmed from your eyes and your shoulders slumped, as if this very conversation had aged you. Sucked all the fight from your body.

He hated himself that he did that to you. Bile rose in his throat, and it took every ounce of strength he had not to rush over to you, to take you in his arms and tell you he wouldn’t leave. Anything to see the hurt go away.

“I see.” Is all you said, your voice breaking on the last word. Gladio took a step forward without thinking, hand outstretched to rest on your shoulder, such a familiar and warm feeling. But he stopped in his tracks as you stepped back, like the one move repulsed you.  

“Then I guess… this is goodbye then Gladio.” And with that you turned, all the energy and anger completely zapped from your body, leaving room for the crippling emptiness to work its way around. You felt numb.

Gladio watched with a heavy heart as his lover walked away from him, slowly becoming a speck in the distance, never once looking back.

-

He was struggling to stay calm, his stomach a whirling pit of nausea as he strode forcefully over to the regalia, the others in tow.

Insomnia Falls.

The words whirled round his brain until they were a blur, until they had lost all meaning. He was only certain of one thing, they had to get back. It was hard to attempt to keep calm on the outside, telling Noctis to not worry just yet. But god damn it was he feeling the same.

I said to stay because they’d be safer… tch, what a fucking fool.

His heart was beating furiously, and although Ignis was really putting his foot down it just didn’t seem anywhere near fast enough. He’d left his lover in Insomnia, he had really thought that it would have been the safest place for them… if anything had happened… The guilt would be too much. And what had become of his sister? If he were to lose his only family… both you and her…

“Why? Why does he have to die?” The furious voice of Noctis came from the left side of Gladiolus, and although he was feeling something similar, a spark of anger prompted his reply.

Don’t say that! Don’t say that until we know for sure! There’s always a chance.”

Noctis blinked at his sudden outburst, not realising that he was saying those words for Noctis just as much as he was for himself. Nothing has been confirmed yet, we don’t know yet… He played it over in his mind like a mantra, the only thing he focused on. They couldn’t be dead… not yet.

“Gladiolus is right, we need to see for ourselves.” Ignis agreed from the front of the car, also oblivious to the other reasons to his words of comfort.

“I guess you’re right…” Noctis muttered.

I pray to the six I am.

Finally the car stopped with a lurch and Gladio was the first one out in the pouring rain. Nothing could stop him now. He charged forward, swinging his great sword with a power he didn’t know he had, thoughts of you and Iris the only thing he could focus on. The few imperial guards stationed around the side entrance had no chance. Gladio cut through them as if they were nothing, as if he was slicing through the fog.

“Gladio! Watch it!” Prompto called, but the dark haired man was already on it, knocking the on coming guard flying and out of the way.

“Uh… looks like you’ve got this!” Prompto amended sheepishly, and carried on with his own attack.

Rain drenched his shirt through, his hair sticking to his face as he fought but nothing could keep him from his goal. And finally they reached the hill over looking Insomnia, over looking their home. He stood silently, sending his sword away as he watched the smoke rise to the sky from the destroyed city. And he knew in his heart, that all was lost.

-

10 years. 10 freaking years had passed, and still there was no sign of Noctis. Gladiolus was beginning to get impatient, but Ignis as always was the voice of reason, saying they had no clue what was happening to him in this time, and they just had to wait.

But Gladio was sick of waiting. The nights had stretched on and on until the sun just didn’t rise anymore, daemons appearing from every path except for the few remaining safe heavens. He just wanted it to be over, wanted everyone safe. He thought back to Iris, staying once more in the safety of Lestallum. Thank the gods she had been safe on that fateful day. Though, someone else hadn’t been that lucky…

The familiar feeling of dread and guilt swirled in his stomach.

Yep, it had been 10 years. But not a single one of those years had diminished what he had felt for his lover. Not a day passed where he didn’t think about them, where he didn’t wish he could go back and change his choice. Where he didn’t ask for their forgiveness.

I would change it all, I was wrong to make you stay. I would take it all back in an instant, I promise.

After coming into contact with Iris, Gladio had searched everywhere for his lover. Every place the group had gone to, he asked locals about you, showed them a small picture of the both of you he hadn’t been able to let go. It was crinkled and faded, worn from the numerous time he had shoved it in and out of his pocket. But he had never let go, and never stopped looking until… until the darkness fell. However, he had never truly moved on. There was just no one else who lighted that passion in him like you had, that spurred him on like you had, that was anything at all like you. There was no replacement for you, he had well and truly lost you. And it had all been his fault. Had he not been duty bound to protect Noctis, he would have walked away.

The young prince would never have known how hard it had been for Gladio to see him retreat into his shell after Luna had died. How he had needed Noctis to stand up for himself, to continue with his task, to persevere as best he could. Because Gladio had had to do it, so he could continue to protect Noctis. And seeing the prince so locked away just brought it all back for him. When he lost his someone.

The familiar anger bubbled in his veins, an easier way to deal with the pain he still felt after all this time. “Argh!” He cried, swinging his fist into the first tree he could find in the empty wasteland.

Where are those daemons, I need to fight with something right now.

As if answering his prayers, a noise that resembled a steely door dragging on its hinges echoed behind him. Turning around, he watched one giant red fist reach out of the swirling purple floor, a sword following it.

A red giant.

Hell yes.

The daemon finally pulled itself out of the ground, shrieking and swinging its sword menacingly. It was a lot bigger than any other red giant Gladio had faced, but at the moment, he didn’t care. Anger had built up like it so usually did when he thought about his past mistake, a mistake that had cost you your life, that it clouded his better judgement. Without waiting to assess the situation, Gladio ran straight in to the fight, brandishing his sword and aiming straight for the giant’s head. It shrieked and swung for him, a huge fist barely dodging the man. But he wasn’t perturbed, and used that moment to jump up and bring his sword down on the monster’s wrist. It wailed in pain as Gladio landed on his feet easily.

Huh, ridiculous. He almost scoffed.

His muscles sang at the feeling of being used, his body coiled and ready to spring. He could feel the anger slowly leaving his body with every swing of his sword, as it so usually did when fighting daemons. It made him feel so much better – much more able to deal with his emotions. With the familiar feeling of his anger evaporating, Gladio went in for one last strike – but failed to notice the opposite arm swinging towards him.

Ugh!” Gladio huffed as he collided with the giant’s arm, the wind rushing behind him as he flew through the air and struck one of the trees in the waste land. The impact winded him, causing him to cough as he struggled to catch his breath. Footsteps shook the ground beneath him as the giant strode ever closer.

Shit… I can’t die here, get up! Never give in!

Even chanting his mantra, the man struggled to get to his feet, his sword suddenly feeling so heavy in his hands. The giant finally loomed above him, ready to strike once more.

No… this can’t be it.

Suddenly there was another sound, drawing the giant’s attention away from the winded man on the ground. Looking up Gladio saw it – a figure, streaking through the night. He couldn’t place it, it definitely wasn’t Iggy who although was adept at fighting daemons, couldn’t jump so gracefully through the air such as this silhouette was. Prompto – well, grace wasn’t that guys forte.

The shadow quickly dodged through the air, missing an attack from the giant by mere inches. Winded as he was, Gladio still found himself to be impressed by the sheer grace and speed this person had. It couldn’t have even been Aranea, their armour wasn’t the same. And yet, watching their graceful attack on the giant with a short sword, Gladio couldn’t shake the feeling that this person was so familiar.

Who the heck are you?

The shadow danced around the giant to stand behind its back, and leapt into the air, sword brandished ready. In one swift move they had plunged it into the beast’s back, and with a great shrill the daemon fell to the ground, dissolving into the same purple goo in which it had appeared.

Without realising it, Gladio had managed to regain his normal breathing pattern and had been watching the figure move with an astounded expression. Finally, he managed to get to his feet and headed towards the figure ready to thank them, but their voice stopped him in his tracks.

“Not usually like you to need my help, big guy.”  The person stepped forward, removing their protective face guard finally. And Gladio’s knees gave way, hitting the floor with a dull sound.

[N…Name]…?”

With a tentative smile, you stepped forward towards the slumped figure. He was exactly the same as you remembered him – in top physical form of course, though he seemed to have acquired more scars than you remembered. Still sans shirt, and still with hair that he stubbornly refused to get cut, now with an added ponytail. You couldn’t help it – a brilliant smile broke out on you face, remembering how you used to run your fingers through those black tresses, teasing him about how it would just get in his eyes while fighting and that he’d look like a daemon soon.

Gladio’s eyes were shinning, wet from the tears collecting in the corners of his eyes. He couldn’t believe it, there they were, stood right in front of him. Alive. It was like his heart had imploded, years of regret and guilt, love and longing had just burst through his self-inflicted barricade. It was too much.

“[Name]…” He breathed again, like your name was just a wonder to even be saying again.

“Wow, no one has called me that in a long time.”

Gently, you stepped forward towards Gladio, your hand outstretched to rest on his shoulder. But before you could, he caught hold of your hand and pulled you towards him, pulling you in a tight hug. You didn’t complain, your arms looping around his shoulders, burying your face into his neck and his ever growing mane. He still smelled the same. Familiar, warm. Your Gladio.

You weren’t sure how long you both stayed there, arms wrapped around each other. It was like you had been starved of each other’s touch, neither of you wanted to let go. And you were pretty sure you could feel Gladio’s silent tears drop into your hair. After a while you pulled back, remembering where you were and that another Red Giant could pop up at anytime. As you pulled back you could see the desperation in Gladio’s eyes – he wasn’t ready to let you go yet. And that thought alone made you feel warm in a way you hadn’t done for a long time.

“We should get out of here.” You suggested, and finally Gladio stood up, wiping any stray remaining tears away.

“I know a place.”

-

The old café had really been decked out, boxes of ammo lying around rather than tables and chairs, but you and Gladio managed to find some seats from somewhere. When the both of you arrived at Hammerhead, a tall man in aviators and a shorter blonde man had gone to greet Gladio, but he just waved his hand as if to say not now, later. The blonde man’s gaze had followed you quizzically.

You guessed Gladio hadn’t mentioned you to them.

“Who are they?” You asked as you sat down inside the warm repurposed café.

“Oh, they are my friends who I left on my journey with.” Gladio was a little hesitant to talk about this subject you could tell. The last time you guys had seen each other…

“Oh… well, I’ve heard about what has happened to the king of course. The star scourge… I never would have guessed anything like this would have happened.” You gave Gladio a sly smile. “Never would have guessed that one day you’d be relying on me to save your life either.”

At that, a spark finally twinkled in Gladio’s eyes – a familiar one.

“Well, I had done most of the work for you beforehand of course.” He grinned at you, his usual cheeky grin that you had loved so much.

“Get lost, had you even touched it?” You teased back.

“Of course, you only had to hit it twice.”

Your heart was racing. It was just like old times, like how your relationship had been before all of this had started. It was crazy how much you had missed it.

Gladio’s warm brown eyes never left yours, but his smile faded slightly. You knew what was coming.

“What… what happened?” His voice was soft, though still as deep and as gruff as you remembered it.

“It… well, it all went wrong as you know when the Nifs decided to throw the treaty out of the window. But while they were out wrecking things I… I managed to slip away in the carnage. I got out. Battered and bruised, but I got out.”

Seemingly without thinking, Gladio’s large hand came to rest atop yours.

“I just ran. Kept going until I came to somewhere with other people in it. I got questions of course, but I decided to change my name. I didn’t want to be tracked down by the empire or anything similar. And Gladio…I tried. I really tried to get a hold of you but I couldn’t for some reason. You were probably travelling all over on your ‘quest with the prince’ as you put it.”

You could feel his hand tighten on top of yours, and you knew in an instant he blamed himself. And of course, you were right.

All these years I have been moping… while my lover was still out there? Gladio could feel himself getting angry at his own actions, but had to stop himself in an instant. There is your lover now. Alive. In front of you! And at that thought, his annoyance left. He focused solely on you.

“So how did you… how did you get to be so good at fighting?”

You had to repress a smirk at that one.

“I decided I couldn’t just sit back and do nothing. Also, if I ever was caught by the empire I wanted a way to fight back. So I asked a few hunters to train me, and I’ve been slaying daemons ever since.”

“You…you’re a hunter?”

“I am indeed, Rank 10 I’ll have you know.” You told him proudly.

Gladio was impressed. He was beyond impressed. Though he wasn’t really surprised.

That is just like them… not to take things sitting down. What did I expect, them to cower for 10 years? The fondness he felt for you and the love just overwhelmed him. Gods did he want to kiss you right then and there. But he stopped, an odd and unwelcome thought striking him.

“So, did you ever… y’know. Did you meet someone?” It was very rare for Gladio to ever become nervous, but this was definitely one of those times. He was almost afraid of the answer.

The question made you smile.

“No… I mean, I stopped thinking I’d ever be able to track you down but… there was never anyone else for me. How about you?” You felt the same as he did, nervous to know the answer. But it came as a big relief to you as he shook his head.

“There never could be anyone else for me. [Name], I searched for you too. I wanted to know if you had made it out of there, but I was asking by your old name not knowing you would change it. Oh, and I also used this.” Gladio withdrew his hand to search for something in his pocket, finally setting the item down in front of you. Picking it up, you gasped.

“You kept this…?”

It was an old looking photo now, worn down and faded. The two of you stood in front of the castle gates smiling into the camera as some stranger you had stopped took the photo. Gladio’s hair was so short… and you had changed so much over the years.

“No wonder they didn’t recognise me.” You whispered, voice thick with emotion.

“Yeah, we are pretty different now.”

Gently you gave the photo back to Gladio, unable to stop the tears from gathering in your eyes. He noticed straight away of course, the look sending shocks down his spine. It was true you may have both changed, but Gladio would have recognised that look anywhere. It transported him back, all the way to 10 years ago, when he told you he was leaving.

And without another moments thought, he was out of his chair and by your side, pulling you up into his arms once more. It was so warm, so cosy and familiar, so right.

“[Name], I know it’s taken 10 years but I know we were destined to find each other again. Can we please… please give it another go?” His voice was quiet, you could hear the regret in his tone, knew the desperation he felt. You felt it too.

“Of course Gladio. I’ve never connected with someone like I have you, not in 10 whole years.” You smiled, giddy with the feeling of surprise and love for the man in your arms.

Well, I never would have guessed this would happen when I woke up this morning.

“Uh… hey.” An awkward voice cut through your moment, and you and Gladio reluctantly let go of each other to face the voice. It was the blonde haired boy from earlier, looking rather sheepish and terribly embarrassed.

“Sorry to interrupt, but Gladio I’ve just got a call from Talcott. Noctis is back.”

Even though you hadn’t really known the king that much, or as he was back then the prince, you knew how big of a deal his return was. Everyone would. It signified the possible end of the star scourge.

“Thank you Prompto, I’ll be out in a minute.”

The guy called Prompto nodded, then scurried off back outside. You turned to face Gladio once more, feeling his excitement from the prospect of the king’s return. He gazed at you also, his hand resting on either one of your shoulders.

“I know it’s only been a short while, but when Noctis returns I will need to leave-”

“Oh no, no way Gladiolus Amicitia. You are not doing this to me again, especially not after we have just found each other. I’m going with you.”

“[Name], no. We’ve just found each other – exactly! I can’t lose you again.”

“Gladio, I can do this. I’ve gotten stronger, just trust me on this.”

Gladio held you at arms length, looking straight into your [e/c] eyes. There it was, that oh so familiar passion, that determination that he loved so much. Sure, physically you may have changed, but you were still that head strong, loving person he had fallen for all those years ago. And your words echoed in his brain, causing him to think back on his last mistake and the words he had thought to himself mere hours ago – ‘I would take it all back in an instant, I promise.’

He heaved a sigh, but when he looked at you once more he was smiling.

“It’s gonna be hard work.”

“Great.”

“It’ll be dangerous.”

Excellent.”

“It will probably be the most gruelling fight of your life.”

“Bring it on.”

Gladio shook his head and smiled.

“And that is why I love you.”

Then he brought his lips down to yours for a swift kiss. They would go to this last battle together, and fight together. But that was the part that mattered most, after 10 whole years apart, they were finally going to be together again. And that made Gladio feel stronger than ever.

Is there still space in the bandwagon?

Hc that Prince Lotor has luscious locks that Lance loves to play with cause it reminded him of how he used to play with his siblings’ hair, and Lotor throws compliments at Lance to get on his good side.

Tell us a fairytale

Once upon a time, in a kingdom far, far away was a prince. 

He was not a happy prince, nor was he loved. Nor was he known. He was a prince that had been locked away in a tower that was hidden behind mountains so hard to navigate only the Prince’s mother could travel through them. And even then, the Queen rarely came to see her son. 

Why was he locked in the tower, away from anyone else? Because as his mother would put it, he was the ugly prince. The kingdoms disappointment. A cowardly prince with a big nose, a big belly and a lack of common sense. 

The Prince at first didn’t believe his mother. He would look in his reflection and smile to himself but the more his mother visited and the longer he was stuck in this tower, the more he started to believe that he was ugly. 

Especially after she visited him yesterday, on his sixteenth birthday. She had come with a pair of scissors and cut of his long, brown hair until it barely covered his ears. When she was done, she looked at him and sneered, “How could you look even worse?” 

It was a relief when she left him alone again. And the young Prince prepared to go to sleep but then he heard a strange noise from outside the tower. He was terrified his mother had returned and slowly, peeked over the edge. But instead of his mothers figure, he was a figure wearing a green hood and cape, a brown horse besides them. The figure was touching the stones, walking around the bottom of the tower trying to find the entrance. 

“Hello?” The prince called out, regretting it almost immediately. What is this person though he was ugly?

The figure stopped, their head snapping up to look at him. “You!” A female voice said, pointing up at him. “How did you get up there?” 


“Um…A rope?” 

“A rope?” 

“Yes…I-I-I created it myself.It works on a pulley system.” 

The girl rubbed her chin before she spoke. “Show me how it works then, mr. inventor.” 

The name made the Prince smile. And once again he forgot about what this girl would think of him as he pulled the lever. Once the rope had reached the girl, she took a hold and he pulled it once more. Only on the wait up did the prince start to get nervous. 

The girl, finally reached the top and leaped into the room. She glanced at the prince but showed a lot more interest at the lever and pulley system he had rigged up. She fiddled with a few things but when she started to pull apart on of the mechanics, the prince moved forward. 

He was quiet as he spoke. “Please don’t break it.” 

The girl stopped fiddling and looked over her shoulder. She was skinny but there was defiant look in her eyes as she smiled at him. “Don’t worry, kid. I’m just going to make one small adjustment to make the ride up and down a little bit smoother.” 

The prince watched as she finished tampering with his device and then it hit him. “You’re an inventor?” 

She stood a little taller. “One of the best,” She beamed. “And i’m currently looking for an apprentice.” 

“An…an apprentice?” 

“Yes!” She clicked her fingers and turned to look at the prince. “I did try to get my girlfriend to fill the position but she’s much prefers bioengineering. So here I am, scouring the mountains for someone…like you. This is a pretty great set up. You’ve got a lot of talent. What’s your name, kid?” 

“Basil.” He whispered, amazed that the words left his mouth. He was shocked. Was this all a dream?

“How would you like to go on adventure?” She smirked. 

Basil looked behind her to the window. Out there his family sat in a castle and here was in this tower. His family didn’t think he was good enough, pretty enough, smart enough but this stranger, this inventor saw potential in him. Which is more than anyone else had ever seen in him. So how could he say no. 

For the first time in a while, he smiled.

one of the many close calls where they nearly figure out each other. cat keeps his word during the ordeal and both walk away with their civilian identities intact. 

yuugi isn’t as keen on his secret identity being exposed to anyone - he doesn’t want his friends and family to ever be targeted, especially since some of them do happen to have connections to the pharaoh’s court. things have been getting a little tense lately. (tho he claims that he has no interest in cat whatsoever, he still doesn’t want cat to be disappointed in how orginary yuugi is. cat is very important to him. and atem definitely never needs to know, even if a relationship btwn him and yuugi would never actually happen.)

atem, while equally concerned with keeping his identity as the prince locked down, is secure in his trust in ladybug. still, he understands the need for secrets and does not actively push for answers. (that’s not to say that atem doesn’t hoard every single fact or hint that ladybug accidentally lets slip about his civilian identity. part of the reason why atem doesn’t push is that he’s sure he’ll eventually figure out who ladybug is. it’s like a game, and he’s so good at games.)

i think this would probably take place a bit after yuugi and cat officially become friends, and this moment would weigh pretty heavy in yuugi’s head when cat drops in on him the next few times. while ladybug has been slowly gravitating to cat over the course of their partnership, this is probably what really pushes yuugi into starting to consider cat and the possibilities. 

atem is pleased that yuugi is warming up to him, even if yuugi doesn’t know that it’s actually the prince that he’s been sharing those long games and conversations in the dead of night. while his feelings for ladybug haven’t wavered, yuugi’s bright smiles and gentleness make atem feel so warm and happy.

it gets to the point where atem will find himself looking for yuugi when he enters the room, and staring just a bit too long when he does see yuugi. mana (and mahaad to a much lesser extent) teases him mercilessly over this.

yuugi adds cat to his daydreams.

Thorin stood with arms crossed, watching the lifeless body buried under the covers of the canopied bed. After Oin had done his best to sew the girl up, the king had made sure to find her a suitable resting place in hopes that comfort would aid in her recovery. That was, if she recovered. Her neck and spine tingled with torturous heat as he thought of how pale she looked and the grim prognosis issued by the grey-haired medic echoed in his head.

booklover912  asked:

Hey I heard you were doing sid/geno prompts! Could you do a prince!sidney and knight/guard!geno au? I really love royalty fics and I think they are so cute!! Please and thank you! ❤️

(this is… not exactly what you asked for, i know, but i hope you like it anyway! crossposted on ao3 here!)

Sidney was not meant for sitting in a tower. 

He’d been there for three years, six months, ten days, and thirteen hours- give or take a few minutes, of course; it wasn’t like Sidney was counting or anything- and he still hadn’t gotten used to the restless feeling that came with being cooped up in the same small room all the time. 

He’d worked out a routine, of course, of chores, and exercise, and studying, so that he wouldn’t be woefully out of shape or out of touch when his prince or whatever came for him, but there were only so many squats a boy could do before he lost his mind.

4 English Otome Titles For First Time Otome Game Players

Otome games are considered a “niche” category, and sometimes niche categories are hard to get into. Thankfully, there are sites like Englishotomegames.net that list great otome games in English, but sometimes, lists can be overwhelming.

A friend once asked me to create a “Top 4” list of titles that can serve as a good introduction to the English otome game market. This is what I gave her:

1. Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom

As one of the biggest otome game bestsellers, this game has been ported to a number of platforms, making it very accessible (the PS3 edition is the one with the most content though). Hakuoki has almost all of the otome game tropes (tsundere characters, demons, etc) and conventions and an engaging story that mashes up historical romance with the supernatural—very characteristic of Otomate’s best games.

For a first playthrough, let your friend just play as they want to play to let them get the “feel” of the choices. But you may want to tell your friend that otome games also tend to have a “canon” route, aka. the storyline that contains the most reveals about the heroine and the world of the game, and in Hakuouki, that is Hijikata’s route.

[OPTIONAL] If your friend has a PS Vita, you can alternatively recommend Code: Realize. Like Hakuoki, Code: Realize has all the otome game tropes, but the difference here is that literary characters like Arsene Lupin and Van Helsing are rewritten using these tropes, and they all help the world of the game surprisingly well. It also feature a lighter story (in comparison but this is not a light story) than Hakuoki and a heroine who occasionally kicks ass and does not wait to be rescued.

2. The Royal Trap

Though Hakuoki does have an engaging storyline, one thing that annoys many players is how Chizuru has a tendency to make herself into a damsel-in-distress. For players who think that, playing as Madeleine in this game will be a breath of fresh air. In many ways, Madeleine is Chizuru’s polar opposite. Not only does she kick serious ass, but she uses her head too.

This is a great introduction to otome game titles made in North America, and it does push against a number of gender stereotypes. Possibly one of the most interesting parts of the game is its inclusion of a transgender character.

While playing through the game, you may want to tell your friend that Prince Callum’s route is locked until one finishes one playthrough of the game.

[OPTIONAL] Another Hanako games title to recommend to your friend could be Magical Diary in case your friend is into magical girls and/or Harry Potter. It features some character customization and non-binary gender options.

Additionally, if your friend is looking for a “free” option, Michaela Laws’ Seduce Me is also a good choice because it features a more independent heroine and also non-binary gender romances (even if these routes are a little short). Alternatively, there is also SakeVisual’s RE: Alistair.

3. Dandelion: Wishes Brought to You

Sometimes, getting a guy in otome games is not just about picking the right conversation options. Sometimes, it means having the qualities that that 2D guy wants. Dandelion is a great introduction to stat raising otome games. It is a South Korean otome game, one that will give a good idea of how other countries in Asia create otome games. The story is highly engaging, and a number of endings tend to be bittersweet (like some K-dramas that one may know). Apart from stat raising, one of the unique features of this game is a fully voiced heroine.

Note: If your friend is a little daunted by the price on Steam (it’s around $30), you may want to tell him/her/them to try the demo first.

[OPTIONAL] If your likes Dandelion, Nameless: the One You Must Recall is another title made by the same company. While it is not a direct sequel, there is a recurring character from Dandelion in this game. Unlike Dandelion, it is a straight visual novel. But what’s interesting about this is how this one has a recommended play order. In this game, one is really required to play all the routes to get a complete experience of the story—because it will unlock the “true” ending after playing though all the routes. In this way, the game’s cannon seems to sort-of encourage polyamory, despite mostly essentialist gender notions in this game. Like Dandelion, a number of the routes were written to make players cry. Some of the routes can be dark though, as most of the male characters have psychological traumas.

4. Hatoful Boyfriend

By this time, your friend probably knows most of the conventions of otome games. Hatoful Boyfriend is a parody game, and seeing almost all otome game tropes parodied and subverted in this game is a very fun experience—especially if you play and finish all the endings, you get to unlock the game’s “true” ending, called “Bad Boys Love” which is a horror story that occurs after the game.


This is just my list. What other games would you recommend for first time players? I am curious to know.

King of Hearts

day 3 Malec week challenge. 

Struggled a bit on this one so hope its okay.


Prince Alexander was to be married. His parents had grown tired of his unwillingness to choose a wife for himself so they had chosen a girl from a suitable family for him and he was to marry the Lady Lydia in two days. Alexander was completely despondent about the idea. Lydia was a lovely young woman, very well brought up and attractive, the perfect choice but there was only one problem. Alexander wasn’t in the least way attracted to her. It wasn’t just her, he hadn’t been attracted to any of the other young girls that had been paraded before him either.

He gave a bored yawn as he stood in his chamber, his arms held out, allowing the royal tailor to make the final adjustments of the clothes that he was to wear for his wedding day. There was a knock at the door and Alexander gave a lethargic. “Yes.”

His heart skipped a beat when he saw that it was Sir Magnus Bane, the head knight of their fighting forces. The two of them had known each other since they were children and as they grew up, they couldn’t deny their growing attraction to each other. They had stolen forbidden moments together when they could, in the stables, deep into the gardens on long rides into the woods together. But they knew that what they felt for each other could never be and now they were both heartbroken at the thought of Alexander being forced into a loveless marriage to for fill his duty.

“Leave us, now.” Alexander told the tailor and the man scuttled from the room. The second he was gone and the door was firmly shut behind him, Alexander wrapped himself around Sir Magnus, his lips crashing down on his in a heated kiss. He could feel tears falling from his eyes as his sadness spilled over. Magnus pulled back to look at him.

“Oh Alexander, what are we to do? It seems we have doomed ourselves to a life of misery.” He said, his voice thick with his own emotions. Alexander leaned his head onto his brow and sighed. It was too painful to think about.

“I know, my beautiful knight, but there is nothing we can do. We could never be together properly and I must up hold by duty as the Prince.”

“I have prayed every night since your engagement for a solution but nothing has presented itself.”

They stayed wrapped in each other’s arms for as long as they could before they knew they had to part.

“We have to spent one last night together, my love so I can carry the memory with me forever.” Alexander told him, as he nuzzled his neck.

“Yes, we must. Let’s meet in the hay loft above the stables tomorrow night after the feast. I vow I will not stop trying to find a solution to our problem.” Magnus told him and with one last kiss, he left the room.

The next day, alexander was tied up with final preparations for his wedding. He was herded from one place to another around the castle by his advisors as they made sure all was in order for the next day but all the prince wanted to do was hide in his bed chamber and feel miserable. At least He and Sir Magnus had tonight to look forward to. As he moved through the day, he began hoping to see him, trying to catch his eye to tell him that their problem was solved but it wasn’t to be.

At the feast that night, he got sick of his mother asking him if he felt unwell because he hardly touched the food on his plate. He tried to pass it off as pre-wedding nerves and she patted his arm knowingly laughing softly. Lydia looked radiant and tried to engage him in conversation about the next day but he only gave her short replies.

When he thought he couldn’t stand to be there any longer, he made his excuses about wanting to retire early for the next day. He headed down the corridor towards his chamber but at the last minute, after making sure no one was looking, he weaved his way through the lesser used hall ways till he made it outside and to the stables. He made sure there was no one around and climbed the ladder to the hay loft.

Sir magnus was already there. He had spread his cape over the hay and had removed his top clothes. Alexander’s mouth water at the sight of him and he threw himself down next to him. There was a mad scramble of arms and legs as Magnus fought to rid him of his clothes till he was laying beneath him, bare chested and breathless. Alexander reached up to undo the ties as Magnus’ waist to remove his underwear and then he was covering with his strong muscular body, his mouth commanding his with lips and tongue. After Magnus had finally removed his breeches, they wrapped themselves in each other exploring each other’s bodies as if they were mapping every surface so it could be committed to memory. After making love twice, they lay back in the hay, breathless and sated.

“Always remember I love you, my knight in shining armour. Whatever happens in my life from now on, always remember that.” Alexander said softly to him as he lay in his arms. Magnus pulled him as close as he could.

“As long as you do the same. You will be forever my Prince Charming.”

They lay together for as long as they dared before sadly dressing and going back down the ladder. Both men had tears streaming down their faces as they kissed for the last time.

“She may get my name, but she will never have my heart, that will always belong to you.” Alexander told him as he held him tightly for the last time.

“I will carry it with me always, my Prince, locked up safely with all the other memories of this night and our time together. Know that you have mine as well. Farewell, my love.” And they parted, hearts aching.

As much as Alexander prayed for it not to come, the next day dawned bright and clear. He was gotten out of bed to start the preparations for the wedding which he carried out in a haze of despair and sadness.  He still continued to watch for any sign that Sir Magnus had found them a last-minute reprieve but he grew more resigned to his fate as the time wore on.

Before he knew it, he was standing at the altar of the church. Flowers filled the room as did hundreds of people, ready to watch him seal his fate to Lady Lydia.

The congregation stood as the music began and all eyes went to the vision of the woman walking down the aisle towards him, a thick veil covered her face.

The words were spoken and the ceremony completed and Alexander felt his heart break in two. He lifted the layers of veil and gave his new wife a small kiss.  She smiled back at him and he got a shock as he saw her wink at him and raise one elegant eyebrow. He had no idea why she would do such a thing, did she know the way he was feeling and making a mockery of them? They walked arm in arm, down through the cheering crowds and then were transported by coach to the reception.

The night dragged on for Alexander. He had for filled his duty to parents and his country and had paid a hefty price for doing so. Now he just wished it all over so he could go back to their honeymoon chamber and sleep to recall happier memories. The thought that he would have to make love with his new wife filled him with dread.

When they finally left the main hall and went to their chamber, Lydia excused herself and went into the joining room. Alexander slowly removed his clothes and each action felt like he had lead in his veins. He got into bed and lay back, going over the day. He had hoped to at least see Sir Magnus in the crowd some here but he hadn’t even done that. He reasoned that it must have been too hard for him to bare and refused to be there.

The door opened and Lydia returned, wearing a hooded cloak. Alexander wasn’t versed in what was considered suitable nightwear for women on their wedding night but the heavy looking garment looked very out of place.

She walked slowly across the room towards the bed to stand beside it next to him.

“Would my beloved like to unwrap his wedding gift?” she asked, her face hidden in the hood.

Alexander sat up and reached out to grab the tie at the neck of the cloak. He undid the strings and pushed it back. His breath hitched in his throat.

Standing before him was not the woman he had married that day but Sir Magnus, beaming back at him.

“What….. how is this possible?” he spluttered.

“I found our solution, my Prince. After I left you last night I was walking back to my chambers when Lady Lydia came up to me. Of course I was very surprised to see her and she confessed that she knew how we felt about each other. She told me that she loved you enough not to see you in such agony as to deny your heart to me and she took me to an old woman who lives in the woods who gave us both a potion to take so that we may swap our souls. From now on, the world will see you with the wonderful Princess Lydia while you only see me and the same I’ll go for her. Naturally, Lydia could not take over my duties as a knight so she has elected to leave the area in search of easier work.” Alexander sat open mouthed on the bed for a few minutes before he grabbed his love and kissed him hard.

“You’re no longer m Prince Charming, Alexander, you’re my king of hearts.” Magnus told him and they tumbled into bed together, overjoyed that their prayers had been answered.
