she is not your pretty little bird


regardless of whether or not she is able to regenerate, it’s gotta be a little traumatic to see your bird mom get stabbed through the chest. He canonically had flashbacks about it. I know this is way back in the beginning of season one but I can’t stop thinking about it I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT BIRD MOM

(Psst also Square Mom and Purple Mom)

So, either I have gone completely off the deep end with overthinking things or Yang is a Phoenix.

Now you may be thinking, “That’s dumb her name means Sun Little Dragon”. And you’re right. But let me finish.

First let’s start out with her mother and uncle.

Raven and Qrow. Qrow can seemingly turn into a bird, and perhaps so can Raven. Judging by a similar red eyed corvid watching Qrow and Winter’s stand off.

Now, I don’t think I need to explain what Yang’s semblance is. She takes hits, and comes back stronger, which also produces a fire effect. Sounds pretty phoenix-y, does it not?

And her theme song, I Burn, at least gives a nod to her connection to birds, or at least things that can fly.

“you’re starting up a fight that you just cant finish
watch the little hearts while they scrape you off the floor
bringin out your rockets well shoot em up baby
“high as you can go but i’m the one who’s gonna soar“

Emphasis fully on the last line. And then when you look at the lyrics of Wings, things get even more interesting.

“Dry your eyes now, baby;
Broken wings won’t hold you down.
You’ll take flight soon, baby.
You’ll be lifted up,
And you’ll be there”

Kind of funny in light of Yang recently being crippled by having one of her arms separated below the elbow. Or a clipped wing, if you will.

“But fire and flying are also dragon things, silly!”

Good point. I was getting to that.

Well, for one, Eastern Dragons (and Yang and her father Taiyang do have Chinese names) aren’t nearly as associated with fire as much as they are in the West.

And speaking of Eastern Dragons, what does Taiyang’s tattoo look like?

Either a stylized heart, or a stylized Eastern Dragon head.

Now, you may ask, what is the significance of this? Well, check this out.

> Fenghuang (simplified Chinese: 凤凰; traditional Chinese: 鳳凰; pinyin: fènghuáng) are mythological birds of East Asia that reign over all other birds. The males were originally called feng and the females huang but such a distinction of gender is often no longer made and they are blurred into a single feminine entity so that the bird can be paired with the Chinese dragon, which is traditionally deemed male.

Kind of funny when you think about how similar Yang’s name is to her father’s, right? She’s “Sun” and he’s “Big Sun”. She’s in a lot of ways a girl version of him.

Also some funny coincidences.

> The fenghuang is also called the “August Rooster” (simplified Chinese: 鹍鸡; traditional Chinese: 鶤雞; pinyin: kūnjī) since it sometimes takes the place of the Rooster in the Chinese zodiac.[citation needed] In the West, it is commonly called the Chinese phoenix or simply Phoenix, although mythological similarities with the Western phoenix are superficial.

Funny how her theme song mentions her burning hotter than the Sun in the middle of July, isn’t it? When as far as I know, August is typically hotter than July in temperate climates. Also, Rooster. Rooster Teeth. Just a funny coincidence.

> Its body symbolizes the six celestial bodies. The head is the sky, the eyes are the sun, the back is the moon, the wings are the wind, the feet are the earth, and the tail is the planets. Its feathers contain the five fundamental colors: black, white, red, blue and yellow.  It is sometimes depicted as having three legs.

RWBY and blue, which might just stand for JNPR for all I know. Also, three legs. And now Yang has three limbs due to her recent unwilling amputation.

> In China and Japan it was a symbol of the imperial house, and it represented “fire, the sun, justice, obedience, and fidelity”

And of course, we come back to fire and the Sun. Both of which Yang is strongly associated with. The Sun being her namesake and the fire that comes with her semblance.

Now, taking into account the possibility of hereditary semblances, and the fact that Yang’s semblance makes her eyes turn red so they match Qrow and Raven’s, there might be something more here. Let’s just hope she takes cues from the more Western Phoenix and finds a way to get that arm back soon.

Thanks for reading and feel free to tell me I’m thinking about things way too hard!

A/N: This was a request and I hope it’s similar to what you wanted, i’m thinking about writing a second chapter for this!

Summary: She was the sunshine in your lives and her name was Hani.

Chapter: 1/?

It was a morning like any other, the sun was shining and the birds were chirping outside the window. You looked at him as the sun reached his face and he looked pretty cute while sleeping, you always thought that.

Suddenly you heard footsteps in the corridor.


Jungkook had barely open his eyes before the little munchkin sat on his stomach.

”Hey you, are you already awake?” Jungkook smiled towards the child who sat right in front of his face with the biggest smile.

”The clock is a lot and i’m hungry.” Hani jumped down on the floor and ran out to the kitchen.

”Well you two have a lot to do today, so go and make her some breakfast and i’ll join you soon.” You placed a kiss on his forehead before you got up to take a shower.

Jungkook sat up in bed and stretched while rubbing the sleepiness out of his eyes.

It had been 5 years since you two got together, you had your ups and downs of course and his schedules had been pretty hectic in the beginning. But you stuck together and you didn’t regret it. He was the best thing that had happened to you. He was caring and always a call away, didn’t matter what it was.

3 years ago your lives were changed completely when she came to the world, your own sunshine. Hani was the best thing you two ever made and you got even closer because of her, if that was even possible.

She always made you smile even on the rainiest of days. Today she was shining as bright as the sun because she knew that this was a papa day.

(ASOS, Chapter 74, Arya XIII)

“Don’t lie,” he growled. “I hate liars. I hate gutless frauds even worse. Go on, do it.” When Arya did not move, he said, “I killed your butcher’s boy. I cut him near in half, and laughed about it after.” He made a queer sound, and it took her a moment to realize he was sobbing. “And the little bird, your pretty sister, I stood there in my white cloak and let them beat her. I took the bloody song, she never gave it. I meant to take her too. I should have. I should have fucked her bloody and ripped her heart out before leaving her for that dwarf.” A spasm of pain twisted his face. “Do you mean to make me beg, bitch? Do it! The gift of mercy … avenge your little Michael … ”

“Mycah.” Arya stepped away from him. “You don’t deserve the gift of mercy.”

The Hound watched her saddle Craven through eyes bright with fever. Not once did he attempt to rise and stop her. But when she mounted, he said, “A real wolf would finish a wounded animal.”

Maybe some real wolves will find you, Arya thought. Maybe they’ll smell you when the sun goes down. Then he would learn what wolves did to dogs. “You shouldn’t have hit me with an axe,” she said. “You should have saved my mother.” She turned her horse and rode away from him, and never looked back once.

Before 8am - an Everlark drabble

Katniss stood over him, a scowl on her face and a freshly brewed cup of coffee in her hand. She studied the way his back shifted with each breath he took, the muscles rippling under skin that had, thanks to summer, become a warm golden colour. And it was pretty much all over too - the black boxer briefs he’d obviously stripped down to the night before left little to the imagination.

She was glad he was at least lying on his stomach. The last thing she needed right now was Peeta Mellark’s barely concealed junk staring her in the face.
