Sometimes you work hard on your happiness for weeks, doing all the right things, and still, you’re not quite where you want to be. But sometimes, on a random Thursday in April, you get up early, you breathe the fresh air, and the happiness is back. You can try all you want to control your life, but you can’t, and any belief you can is an illusion. Anytime spent denying yourself what you know is the truth is wasted time. You know what you need to do.
Fall in love. Write a book. Paint the skies. Fly with the wind. Sleep with the stars. Dance with the rain. Swim with the river. Sing with birds. Travel with art. Meditate. Build bridges. Listen to trees. Inspire others. Feel emotions. Serve people. Fill them with positivity. Be expressive. Be faithful. Be weird. Give hope and strength. Spend time with freedom. Explore reality. Conquer fears. Fulfill dreams. Learn from mistakes. Appreciate everything. And when it’s time to die, go home. Then, there will be rebirth of consciousness.

The first thing Kallus notices about living with the
Rebellion is how bright everything is.
He has lived his life among shades of black and white and
grey. His years have been spent walking the polished corridors of Imperial
strongholds and stations, standing on the spotless bridges of their ships.
The world around him has been smooth, ordered, monochrome – and those things
always meant safety for him. Colour and chaos were things he encountered only
in battle, brought to him by blaster fire and bursts of flame.
But as the Ghost leaps
through hyperspace – once, twice, three times, to shake off any pursuit as they
head towards Yavin – it all changes. He, and the other battered souls the Ghost crew rescued from the ruined base
on Atollon, collapse to sleep on chairs, on tables, some even curling up on the
floor like children. And as Kallus lies there, exhausted but sleepless, he
notices the paintings.
Sabine Wren has covered the insides of the ship with her
signature graffiti, coloured shapes and emblems and figures coating nearly
every available space. In the dim light, Kallus casts his eyes across them, and
realises how comforting a sight they are. He isn’t sure why, until he sees the
symbol, that symbol, the phoenix
emblem that’s repeated again and again across the walls in ink of every possible hue.
The symbol that, for years, set his teeth on edge when he saw it, because it
represented chaos, it represented his enemies.
Now… it’s a symbol for freedom. It represents the rebellion
– and that means it represents him.
It’s a smile of disbelief. Of being so taken aback, so overwhelmed, she doesn’t know how to respond, and it’s scary.
She doesn’t know how to cope with the fact that the one person who for the most part genuinely wanted to make her happy just risked her own life for her and admitted that Anthy is vital to who she is, and isn’t immediately expecting something in return, is neither pretending not to need Anthy nor claiming Anthy has any kind of obligations towards her, and won’t hear any such thing.
It’s awe. Just this brings her to utter disbelief and awe.
walking to the track field. It was a free period and you wanted to practice a
few cheers with your cheerleading squad. The hallway was eerily empty. It gave
you chills but it was still school, what’s the worst that could happen? You
walk by Theo’s locker and he seemed to consume your mind for majority of the
time now. You weren’t sure what you guys
were, but you had something there. You were scared to ask Theo what it was
because you didn’t want to lose it, whatever it was. You have kissed a few
times and heck, he has also confessed liking you, as did you but it never went
past that, he never hinted at being more. You were still hopeful. Maybe he
wanted time. He has been MIA for the past week. You felt like you stood in no
place to ask him reason why, so you laid it off. You were pulled out of your
thinking trace because of a loud thud behind you, almost like something
colliding with a metal, a locker. You flinch clutching your books tighter to
your chest. You slowly turn around. Your eyes widen at what you see, it was a
familiar face, familiar eyes. Theo, with claws and golden eyes. He had pinned
Stiles on one of the locker. Everything confused you, you couldn’t form words.
You wanted to scream but nothing came out. All you could do was run, so you
did. But Theo saw you, you’re eyes met, he saw how terrified you were and he
returned to his human form but you were out of sight.
home now, tossing and turning, you still couldn’t process what you saw in the
hallway, it kept you up. You knew he saw you but he never texted. You were so
confused, you wanted to sleep on it but you just couldn’t. You were just hoping
it was come hallucination. You heard knocks. You shrugged it off thinking that
was your ‘wild’ imagination too. You kept hearing it. You finally sat up and
looked at the window. You see Theo. Shivers ran down your spine. He never
scared you before, even with his towering frame. But this time it was
different, he terrified you. You still deserved an explanation. You slowly
walked towards the window to open it. He could see a hint of fear in your eyes.
He got into
your room and tucked his hands into his pockets. “Hi” you say, your eyes
wandering around the room not really meet his. “what are you doing here?” you
ask, accidently getting a glimpse of his eyes that were trained on you.
“I saw you,
today,” he started and you nodded taking a step back slowly. “I can hear your
heartbeat getting faster, are you scared of me (y/n)?” he asks and you shook
your head, but you knew you were lying, so did he. “Don’t lie to me,” he called
you? What I saw-“ you start and you almost trip over your bed as you were
pacing behind. “I don’t know what – what it was” you spoke up somehow with a
shaky voice. “You don’t have to be scared. I would never hurt you, baby” he
said. You wanted to blush because that’s the first time he called you that but
that would be inappropriate. “What- what are you?” you repeat yourself.
“I’m here to
explain, let me, please” he says almost begging. “I hate lying to you, I feel
this connection with you and I don’t want to lose it, I really don’t, but you
have to understand, I’ve done bad things, bad unforgivable things and I know
you’ll hate me for it but I want you to find it in your heart to forgive me” he
says as he advances towards you. You fall back into your bed in a sitting
position. He knew he scares you, but it was important for him to show you. He sat
in front of you on the bed.
hurt you, I promise”
You nod at
it but you found everything too hard to believe almost like a dream, a
very weird one at it. He looks up and growls and suddenly his beautiful
features change, almost morph into this wrinkly face and thick skinned wolf? You
weren’t sure. His eyes glowed just like when you saw this afternoon. His claws
were out. You were terrified, your heart rate sky rocketed. His expression
changed almost like he knew what you were feeling.
“I can hear
your heart, you’re scared (y/n), trust me when I say you don’t have to be.” He says
and you slowly nod. You barely said anything because you were lost for words. You
didn’t know what to say. He takes your hands in his. You want to pull them back
but you don’t, you decide to trust him. “your eyes are beautiful” you say, you
hand stretches towards his face to touch his cheek. You see a small smile on
his face, you smile back. He knew you finally trusted him.
This.has.been.sitting.in.my.drafts.since.I.made.this.account.when.I.was.14.You have no idea how long i’ve stared at this fic trying to get it finished and finally it’s done.

“What are stars to you?”
Natsu’s eyes flashed over to the priestess sitting next to him on the grass. Her legs were pulled close to her chest and eyes stared unblinking at the twinkling spots of light in the sky. Her expression was unreadable as he watched her.
“I don’t understand what you mean.” he replied, rather blunt.” Stars are stars, there’s nothing else to them.”
“But you’re a God, you live among them. Haven’t you ever wondered that there might be more to them?”
“No. My life has been nothing but overcoming trial after trial, I never had the time to think about things like that.”
She hummed softly in agreement, she should know. Everyone knew about his life,after all he was a god of war, one of the patron deities of the kingdom Alvarez alongside his brother Zeref, god of chaos. His tale was one taught all around the world and everyone,-young and old-knew it well.
