Okay I feel like this has probably come up before, but I’m rereading and I only just noticed this particular line:

‘When the sea was young, El the first Elder believed in the people of the islands.’

(Assassin’s Apprentice, chapter eleven). It’s part of the origin myth of the pocked man told at the start of the chapter. But I don’t think I ever registered the phrasing before. El the Elder?

…we know what this sounds like, right?

Look, I’m not 100% saying that Eda and El were dragons-slash-elderlings but what if they were that’s super fascinating to me

Also, the first Elder? The first dragon? Elderling? Elderling-Dragon combo team? 

I’m way too preoccupied with this concept now XD

Blood Lust

Hear me out, an AU where the dragon hurts Baz before they defeat it together. He’s wounded and needs help. What would Simon do? Hope you enjoy ;)


Simon felt himself thrown backwards swiftly. The dragon wasn’t being quelled by magic or reason and Simon’s sword had skittered across the courtyard. Simon had pushed power into Baz but the dragon seemed to sense the pulse in magic and had thrown Simon as far away from Baz as possible.
Baz stood, looking more confident than the situation warranted, and tried to calm the creature. Distantly Simon wondered why he hadn’t gone off yet, it would have been the simpler solution. As he watched Baz get slashed with razor sharp dragon talons the answer came to his mind: because Baz had asked him not to.
“Baz!” Simon screamed.
He watched the other boy fall backwards and didn’t stop to think. Running forward he grabbed Baz by the shoulders once again. This time Baz was weak with pain and did not have the strength to summon such an advanced nursery rhyme. Instead he used one of the simplest American spells out there.
“There’s no place like home!”
The creature flew backwards a bit from the impact of the magic. Then, slowly, she turned away and flew off, the fight in her forgotten. Simon looked down at Baz’s body and grimaced. There were deep cuts running across Baz’s chest and stomach. Blood was everywhere. Baz looked panicked, though Simon didn’t understand why. He was, after all, a vampire.
“I can’t-I…the clinic…”
Simon looked around at the approaching people.
“Spit it out Baz.”
Baz’s grey eyes looked almost pleading.
“I can’t go to the clinic. They’ll know.”
In a rush Simon understood. Baz couldn’t go to the clinic because he would regenerate too quickly for a human. He would be exposed and the Mage would sentence him to expulsion or even worse, death. Simon thought he had always wanted this. But for some reason the idea didn’t seem attractive anymore.
He lifted Baz quickly and passed him his jumper. Baz looked about ready to pass out but he threw it over his head anyways. Simon hoped the sweater wouldn’t get soaked with blood before the others got to them.
Penny ran over to them with the school nurse. Even panicked, she looked like she was trying to calculate everything going on.
“Simon! Are you okay?”
Simon nodded and eyed Baz worriedly.
“Yes, fine actually. I better report to the Mage quickly.”
Penny looked confused.
“Is he even on campus?”
Simon shrugged.
“Better find out as quickly as possible in case the Humdrum sends something else.”
The nurse looked over at Baz who had been ignored in the entire exchange.
“Basilton? Are you all right? You don’t look so good.”
Before Baz could respond to the nurse’s question Penny cut in.
“I saw the dragon take a pretty mean swipe at him.”
He glared accusingly at her.
“Yes I’m all right. She barely scratched me. I’m just exhausted from using so much magic.”
Penny’s eyes went unfocused.
“Speaking of which…how did you-“
“Okay well we better go report this!” Simon interrupted.
He grabbed Baz’s arm before anyone could stop them and led them away. Baz jerked away as soon as they were out of sight from the crowd.
“Seriously Baz?”
Before Simon could work up to a real growl he realized Baz let go because he was falling down. He crouched on the floor and took in frenzied breaths.
“I need…blood…”
Simon wished he meant a transfusion.
“C’mon we can’t stay in the hall like this.”
Baz looked up at him.
“Look I’ll help you just come with me.”
Simon offered his hand.


He stared at the hand warily. Baz wasn’t sure he could trust Snow. They had barely formed an alliance and it was shaky as it was. He decided he didn’t have much of a choice and accepted the offering. Shakily he stood and leaned on Snow for support.
Slowly they trekked to their room. When they entered Baz fell back against the wall and let himself feel the pain. The dragon had raked his torso efficiently and left him in critical condition. He needed blood though he had no idea what Snow was planning to do about that.
“Planning on summoning a nice rabbit? You were never very good with that kind of spell Snow.”
He fell into a coughing fit after getting the words out.
Snow grimaced.
“No actually. Something much more distasteful.”
His sword appeared at his side. Baz’s heart pounded fearfully. He wondered if Snow realized this was the perfect opportunity to get Baz while he was down. He could claim the Mage ordered the kill and Baz knew the Mage would cover for him.
“You’re going to kill me?”
Snow looked surprised. “Of course not.”
“Then what are you…” Baz trailed off as he watched Snow lift the sword to his own collarbone.
“You need blood. And you can’t get down to the catacombs in your condition.”
Baz realized what Snow was suggesting.
No! I’m not biting you.”
Snow rolled his eyes. “Of course not. I don’t think either of us wants me around forever.”
Baz watched Snow slice his skin with his sword. Blood trickled down quickly.
“But if it’s the bite that carries the…vampy stuff…then I’ve taken care of that issue.”
Baz wanted to accept Snow’s offer, was shocked by it even. But he wasn’t sure he could stop himself from killing him. He couldn’t hurt Snow. It would make healing meaningless.
“Snow I can’t.”
“I’ll stop you if you can’t do it yourself. You’ll die if you don’t drink. Those wounds are serious.”
Snow leaned forward and kneeled in front of Baz.
“Why are you doing this?”
Snow’s eyes widened. “I don’t really know.”
Baz nodded and rushed forward. He knocked Snow back onto the hardwood floor of their room. Carefully he latched onto Snow only with his mouth, not his teeth. He distantly worried about his saliva, but he figured Snow was more powerful than any other mage and could fight it off.
Snow’s blood tasted amazing. It was like drinking gold; he couldn’t describe it any other way. The power of Snow’s magic rushed through him like wild fire; he could feel it healing his wounds. Baz felt the enormity of Snow’s sacrifice like a stab to his heart.
Snow made a small sound but didn’t pull Baz back. He wanted to reassure Snow he could never kill him, that he would be able to pull away. For some reason the blood was freeing his emotions, letting his mask slip away to reveal how he felt. How in love he was with Simon Snow.


Simon felt dizzy which he thought was probably a reasonable response to blood loss. But he also felt euphoric; something he guessed was not a normal response. He distantly worried that maybe Baz’s saliva would indeed turn him but he gave the thought little confidence. He felt as alive as he had in the fight with the dragon; he was simply enjoying Baz’s drinking.
He felt himself put his hand to the back of Baz’s neck, holding him tighter against his chest. Baz murmured contently at the touch and looked up into Simon’s eyes. His expression was adoring, almost worshipful. Simon didn’t have the sense of mind to question the expression; he simply let himself enjoy it.
Baz pulled away with some effort. The blood around his mouth reminded Simon that he had been in danger the entire time, but he couldn’t find a reason to care.
“You said you would pull me away if I couldn’t.” Baz’s words were more accusatory then his tone.
“Well that was before…I just didn’t expect it to be like that.”
Baz blushed with Simon’s blood and looked away.
“Neither did I honestly.”
They were both silent for a moment.
“Are you feeling better?”
Baz nodded. “Much better.”
Baz quietly stood and helped Simon up.
“No Baz, you need to rest.”
I’m fine. You helped me, now let me help you.”
Simon looked at Baz and felt a surge in his heart.
As Baz helped Simon to bed he began to think about what had passed between the two of them. He wasn’t sure what it meant but he knew it had changed things. For the better.

Anonymous asked:

hi hi! first of all, i absolutely loooove this blog and thank u so much for ur work and effort! the question i have is particularly to male folks to answer: if u found a character (especially the main one) having a crush and not being able to confess to his crush at the end (even after slashing damn dragons and being the right hand of a king!), could u identify with him? or he would be a coward? his crush can either be male, female or nonbinary, but i’m interested in the crush thing

Aww, thank you! I’m glad the blog has been helpful! :) <3

Okay, so Anon is interested primarily in what male readers think, so if anyone out there wants to respond, please do! 

Have a writing question? I’d love to hear from you! Prohibited questions: portrayal of diverse characters, portrayal of emotions, specialist knowledge questions (medical, military, mental health, etc.), “how to portray/describe,” asking for tropes/cliches, asking for resources; broad, vague, or complicated questions. See master list & main site for more info!


This is the works of @joesette, @mr-detective-g and me.

We want to expose this because is very use full also to understand how much works is need to develop a relationship between 2 character in this case Zoro&Robin. From the beginning,even before One Piece come out, Eiichiro Oda had the idea of a swordsman that saves a girl with a very sad past. He wanted also a scene where a swordsman cut in half a dragon.

Before Eiichiro Oda created One Piece (his most important works inside his career as Mangaka), he develop separate story that where put together in the series Wanted. The case that interest us is call Monster.

The story talks about a young swordsman that arrive in a town. He met a girl. That girl is called Flare, she is an owner of a restaurant, inside that restaurant, there is also the main antagonist of the story Shirano. This character is presented has the hero that saved the girl 7 years before from an accident where a Dragon burn her hometown. During that accident, only Flare survived. In reality, Shirano is a very cold/heartless guys that look only in his personal business. He cooperates together with the dragon to destroy the city. He saves Flare, not for a good reason but he looked after someone that could bring him more fame and prestige.
In the moment that Ryuma encounters Shirano inside the restaurant, he felt that he need to challenge him. Ryuma loses during the first encounter because Shirano is very skilled in his swordsmanship.

Ryuma will fight again Shirano to vengeance the death of Flare parents. In that case, he wins the combat with one slash . At the same time the dragon appears to burn again the city but this time, Ryuma protect Flare, he cut with a sigle slash the dragon head. The end of the story shows that
Flare&Ryuma are left in good term, they are good friends.

Now this story has interesting and uses full information that Eiichiro Oda took also for One Piece (his masterpiece). In One Piece he creates a figure call Roronoa Zoro that has an incredible design similarity like Ryuma: their face, body, gesture are very alike and also their profession both are incredible skill swordsman.
In the case of Flare, the girl is drawn not exactly like Robin but Oda took from her, especially her sad story/background to develop Robin.

Here you can see in detail the similarity between Zoro&Ryuma and Robin&Flare.
In the case of Zoro&Ryuma:

1) The main character Ryuuma shares a similar design with Zoro;
2) Both of them are proud and very skilled swordsmen;
3) The major antagonist for Zoro&Ryuma shares a very similar design. They are rival. The difference between Mihawk and Shirano is the fact that they have 2 completely different personalities and backstory.
4) In both cases when they are introduced they met a female character that is going to help them. In the case of Ryuma is Flare and in the case of Zoro is Rika.
5) In both cases, they are starving to death;
6) In both cases are going to help the girl, Zoro against the Marine, Ryuma against Shirano&Dragon
7) They both cut in half a dragon.
8) Ryuma is also introduce in One Piece (in his Zombie form) during Thriller Bark, he fight Zoro that in that case win the fight and receive the Shusui.

Now about Flare and Robin:

1) Flare is a very complex character like Robin. She has a dark and very sad past, in both cases, they lost there chill town and they are the only survive. In the cases of Flare is a Dragon and in the case of Robin is the world government and more precisely the CP-9 that gave the order to destroy Oahra;
2) There is also an interesting information that connects Flare&Robin. In the case of Flare, the attack of her home town happened 7 years before she encounters Ryuma. That number is official the number that represents Nico Robin because she entered in the crew as the 7th member.
3) Both women show for different reasons that the give up for there live, they wanted to end there/to die.
4) Flare has a name that recalls the Robin technique “Fior Fior”

To conclude about Flare and Robin, I think that Eiichiro Oda took the idea of Flare background to develop Robin mini arc during the water 7 when we see a very impact full/sad past field with a lot of desperation. All straw-hat suffer some kind of lost during there past but for Nico Robin, the story that Eiichiro Oda show us is just on a different level of sadness.
In the case of Zoro and Ryuma, Eiichiro Oda took more information, first the design of Ryuma was used again for Zoro, second the idea that Zoro is a swordsman, third also part of his behavior, Ryuma is shown to have like Zoro two different approach, against his enemy, is overconfident and you can see the blood lust. On the other side they have also a more human side, in both cases, they are drawn silently near a person that suffer. I think is a way to show that they want to comfort the other side that is suffering but without interacting. They share the passion for there swordsmanship, in both cases, they want to challenge strong guys. In both cases, they show there best when they need to protect something or someone. In both cases, they are loyal when they promised something they are going to fuffil that no matter what the cost is.

What started out as a sketch became a collaborative project between me, the PS Art Room, smogon forums, and the fakemon creators over at /vp/, so the advice has been appreciated. It’s a frilled pinwheel lizard that evolves into a kite dragon. I considered making it dragon/flying in the beginning, but seeing how it could be made into grass with little to no effort, I went with that since that typing is much more rare. And as a small trivia, the swedish language has the same word for dragon and kite (drake), which is part of the reason why I wanted it to gain the dragon typing upon evolving.

Names comes from Pinwheel + Weed, and Reptile + Kite.

Notable moves: Leaf Blade, Power Whip, Giga Drain, Energy Ball, Air Slash, Acrobatics, Tailwind, Dragon Claw, Dragon Pulse, Dragon Tail, Whirlwind, Defog, Flamethrower, Focus Blast, Swords Dance, Roost

Being Jimin’s girlfriend means (continued!)
  • him using your boobs as cushions so you could be sitting on the couch watching tv and he’ll come over and lay his head down on your chest 
  • and you give him this look like what the fuck
  • and he just smiles in his cute little way and kisses the spot just over your heart and you’re just like “ye a h do wHAt e ver yo U w aNt”
  • him doing the most to make you smile when you’re sad and hugging you and telling you how great you are and kissing you all over until you’re giggling and you can’t stop smiling
  • you cooking for him because you know that he would never turn down your cooking and you like knowing he’s well fed
  • when you two get heated and he takes off his shirt you always make sure to kiss his belly so that he knows that even if he doesn’t have abs you love every inch of him
  • sends you selcas every day he’s not with you with little captions like “day 13 without you” and a crying emoji
  • you are security guard slash dragon slash gate keeper when he’s sleeping because you want to make sure he gets enough rest so you won’t let anyone wake him until he’s ready
  • him always appreciating you taking care of him but also being like “baby you have to let me take care of you too”
  • so you let him take you out and it’s basically just him taking you to different locations and staring at you
  • you ask him to teach you the dances and he’s super patient and kind even when you ask him to repeat a step fifty times
  • but of course he uses the opportunity to touch you
  • so he’ll grab your leg and be like “you have to stand like this” and he’ll reach up to caress your thigh
  • or he’ll stand behind you and turn your hips and kiss your neck
  • and you’re like “how am i supposed to learn the dance if you keep distracting me???”
  • and he just laughs and pulls you in for a kiss
  • as much as he loves kissing you and touching you he loves just being around you more 
  • so he’ll take any excuse to be with you whether it’s to run to the grocery store or to sit on your floor and watch you read, he doesn’t care as long as he can be near you

Fullbokko Heroes x Osomatsu-san

This is a masterpost of my own references for Osomatsu-san collab with Fullbokko Heroes X. I’m not sure if this has been done before, but I tried this game out of curiousity because I like the outfits (Oso and Choro especially) and got unexpectedly hooked because it’s quite entertaining. So I decided to just write this down for my own reference and hopefully give some info! :>

Please keep in mind that I’ve only started playing because of the Osomatsu collab, so I definitely haven’t got that far myself. It’s quite lengthy and image heavy (esp the character section) under the cut!

EDIT: Added more information on class type, their attacks and weakness.
