smoke pattern

anonymous asked:

What if you did a story where one of the humans got a tattoo? All of the alien life forms on the ship would be concerned and confused because, why do you have different markings? Are you sick? Is is something you need???

Humans are fast healers compared to the Draxians. It’s what makes them ideal for going on more dangerous missions. Something that would incapacitate a Draxian for several months would only hinder a human for a week. Cuts and bruises on human skin heal with relatively no trace, so when Human-Jackie develops a skin mark after a vacation to Earth that doesn’t disappear, the Draxians get worried.

A crewmember approaches her one day while she is fixing the air cooling unit for the dining hall. “Human-Jackie?” the Draxian asks tentatively, tail flicking nervously.

Jackie looks up from under the system, grime and oil covering her face and clothes. The marking is visible on her left forearm; a swirling pattern of smoke that curls around and morphs into several flying creatures. The Draxian wonders what type of fungus or disease would cause such intricate detail.

“If you don’t mind my asking,” the Draxian continues once Jackie gives her a nod of approval, “are you ill?”

When Jackie only makes a confused noise, the Draxian indicates the mark on her arm. “Your arm,” he clarifies. “Have you not sought medical treatment?”

Jackie laughs, making the Draxian’s spines ripple with surprise. “No, I don’t need anything like that,” she chuckles. “This is a tattoo.”

“A… tattoo?”

Jackie shrugs. “Yeah, it’s something humans to do make our bodies look cooler. I have a couple more; they just aren’t visible.”

The Draxian puzzles over this for a second. “But wouldn’t your body just regenerate its skin to make it disappear? What is the point?” He is getting more and more confused.

“Well, yes, that’s how it normally happens, but we like them to stay permanent so we have to use needles to imbed ink into a deeper layer of skin.” Jackie moves back under the broken piece of machinery again, then calls out, “I’m not totally sure how the whole thing works. I’m a mechanic, not a tattoo artist.”

The Draxian waves his tail back and forth in thought. “So,” he starts, hesitantly. “You’re not sick?”

Jackie laughs again, her voice muffled by the machine she is under. “Nope, at least not physically.”

The Draxian doesn’t know what that is supposed to imply, but before he can ask for clarification, his caller signals that he is needed in the cockpit. He would have to talk to her later.


Forelsket- Danish; “The euphoria of falling in love”

Summary: Jungkook’s sure about his feelings for you, but he isn’t sure of yours. Taehyung suggests he use a love potion on the off chance you may confess, and it’s all downhill from there. [Harry Potter au]
Pairing: Jungkook x reader
Word Count: 2,564
A/N: inspired by a late night conversation with @minsvga and @jungkxook about Jungkook as a Ravenclaw, possessing bits and pieces of traits from all four houses yet still not being brave enough to confront his feelings. This was written on a whim, and truthfully, Katie’s will make mine make way more sense.

In the beginning of Jungkook’s fifth year at Hogwarts, he likes to think he understands everything about the school. He’s been sent into the Forbidden Forest, (no longer terrifying, but the name was kept after the Great War, and honestly, he’d only gone in on a dare,) he’s broken his arm in a few Quidditch matches, used the Marauders Map to sneak his way into Hogsmead the year he forgot his permission slip. But try as he may, there are still a few things Jungkook can’t figure out.

Take, for example, the way Jungkook catches you glancing at him in the library, eyes glazed as if you were lost in thought, only to look away before it became obvious to any bystander that you were staring. Innocent enough to anyone else’s view, but it’s happened too many times for Jungkook to write off. Or the way you claim to hate Quidditch, only to show up to any game Jungkook played in, cheering for his house and never your own. Or three weeks ago, when Jungkook had postponed an essay until the night it was due and you’d showed up at the door to his common room with four coffees, his favorite snack, and your favorite blanket.

Jungkook was pretty sure he knew how he felt, but he couldn’t be sure how you felt.

Lost (Reddie) (2/8)

Summary : Richie Tozier is struggling with something. Something he’d never thought he’d have to struggle with. Sure, his parents can be pretty shitty, but he never thought it would come to this. It’s now been about a month since Richie has been kicked out of his house. He has made do with sleeping in his truck, and passing out on nights that all the losers are together, but things are becoming more dire. With what was left of his money stash gone, Richie is forced to make a living by prostitution. There’s also something going on with Eddie. Eddie Kaspbrak, mommy’s boy and pill expert has been put on a new pill. This time, it was of his own doing, and not his mothers. What it’s for, no one knows.

Pairings : Eventual Reddie with hints of Stenbrough and mentions of Bikeverly (Ben/Mike/Bev)

Warnings : Pot smoking teens, bad puns, and lots of beverie/bichie love

AN : This is more of a fluffy chapter, just to work you all up before a downfall. The next chapter is probably going to really upset some people, so enjjoy the flUFF.  Keep in mind that all of the characters are 18/19 at this time, and in their senior year of high school. The characters in no way have any relation to the child actors that have portrayed them. IT does not belong to me, however if it had I would’ve changed a lot of things in the book.

SUPER special thank you to Josh @spookerlymarsh for helping me out with the first scene. You’re the best!
