snake creep

middle earth gothic

there are rolling hills of grass in the shire and doors where lives once stood. you hear murmuring on the wind. they say it is the water of the brandywine but you know better. a girl sings a song and the bones of flowers rattle beneath her feet as she hangs wash to a clothesline.

when you find rivendell, it is quiet. the bruinen has cracked its way through the rocks, and moss covers the stacks of books. a bookcase rattles and screams when you come close to it. you put the parchment back. you put the syllabus back. a daughter makes her choice, and chooses rushing tides over the stillness of time. you hunt for a mother’s bone. there are none, there are none, there are none.

moria is a hollow cave and a hollow darkness and a hollow tunnel. there are dead ones wherever you look. a tomb screams of old friends and lost relatives. we cannot get out scrawled in spit tears and blood. when the ancient flame comes, you know your hands will let go and you will not be able to stop the screaming of wind through your bones.

when you enter lothlorien, the trees crackle and whisper and sigh. a witch lives here you hear them say. you do not find a way out, and the trees blindfold you to find the way: you are lost, but you catch glimpses of dead dreams in a pool of hissing water.

fangorn is a forest made of sinew and muscle and bone. the trees throb with poetry that lasts centuries. there is the body of an orc trapped in vines, and it smiles at you with sharp teeth rotting. you understand, for a moment, that death is nothing but the beginning, and then the darkness falls again. you smell water and wood and life. when the trees stare back at you, you do not think you feel safe. 

rohan gallops through time like bristling horses. a white lady looms, pale, behind shut windows as snakes creep over her uncle’s body like worms feasting upon dead flesh. her hands are marked with red, her eyes are empty pools. in all her dreams she drowns.

the white city looms like a stack of old bones. there are charred robes at the bottom of the valley where a grieving father once jumped to his death. at night the dead come walking, their eyes hollow, their hands clutching the heads of those they lost. there is the carcass of a fell beast on the planes before the city of kings and the children play with her bones.

the grey havens smell of saltwater and burning ships. the goodbyes here are final, and bitter, and made by the dead. the ghosts are quiet, for once. to the west, the sun sinks and kisses the sea. you think you hear laughter: you know it is only the wind.

“Please, Eliza” Alex pleaded. “Please?”

Alex tugged on her hand and stared at her with big eyes. Eliza could feel her resolve crumbling slightly.

“But the snakes creep me out.” Eliza scrunched up her face. Ever since she was young she would rescue animals from her backyard and try to help them, except snakes had always given her a bad feeling.

“I just want to see them for one minute. We just need to go in for one minute.” Alex begged. “Please?”

He looked so cute begging. Eliza knew that she was going to agree. It was too hard to turn him down.

“I’ll hold your hand the whole time?” Alex offered, a hopeful smile on his face.

“I think I’ll need a little more than hand holding. What else do you have?” A mischievous smile lit up Eliza’s face.

“A kiss?” Alex lifted an eyebrow.

Eliza thought for a moment and shook her head.

“I’ll buy you ice cream.”

“Alright.” Eliza agreed. A grin spread across Alex’s face and without any hesitation he leaned forwards and pecked her lips.

“That was not a kiss!” Eliza exclaimed. Alex grinned as she pouted like a kid that didn’t get their way.

“Fine.” Alex complied, he carefully leaned forwards and pressed his lips against hers. Eliza smiled against his lips and responded to the kiss. She moved her lips against his and slipped her fingers into his hair. He made a little sound in the back of his throat as her fingers tangled in his hair.

“Get a room!” a voice yelled.

Alex and Eliza jumped apart. Eliza’s cheeks burned red. Alex turned red as well, Eliza couldn’t help but giggle at how embarrassed he looked.

“Let’s go.” Alex sheepishly said, holding out his hand for her to take.

Eliza took his hand with a smile and lead the way towards the reptile house. Their feet slapped against the concrete in tandem as they walked.

She slowed their pace as they approached the reptile house. Alex sent her a reassuring look and slightly tightened his hold on Eliza’s hand.

The air conditioning of the reptile house blew against Eliza’s bare skin causing the hairs on the back of her neck to stand on end. The room was covered in pictures of the reptiles and fun facts about the animals.

“See anything scary?” Alex leaned down and whispered into her ear.

“Just this creepy guy holding my hand.” Eliza said playfully as she swung their hands forwards.

Alex chuckled and pressed his lips against her cheek.

“Let’s go see the snakes.” Alex pulled her forwards slightly in search of the snakes, while Eliza reluctantly followed him. They weaved through the small crowd of people until they were standing in front of a sign that said ‘python’ in curvy green letters.

Eliza took a deep breath and looked a little closer through the glass. She jumped back as she saw movement. As soon as the snake came into sight Eliza swore under her breath and tucked herself a little closer to Alex.

“You’re so gonna owe me.” Eliza murmured.

Alex chuckled and pressed his lips against her forehead.


Teen Wolf GenderSwap!Stiles: Part 16/?

“I don’t…I don’t know what you’re talking about. I haven’t even seen Stiles all week!”

That was technically a lie…unknowingly.

“You’re lying.”

“Again, why would I? Matter of fact, why would I care?”

Derek takes a final step foward leaving precisely no personal space between them.“I don’t expect you to treat me like your Alpha because I know you wouldn’t, no matter how much Scott talks about including you in our little pack meetings. All I ask is that you show, I don’t know, an ounce of respect to the one that gave you the bite.”

He swallows hard, “I-I’m not lying.”

Derek exhales, rolling his eyes in the process as he turns to leave.

“Yeah, you better walk away…CREEP!”

So the reason cats freak when they're suddenly faced with a cucumber is because their instincts because hem to assume it's a predator, and in most cases, a snake. This obviously leads me to assume that Suzy and Arin's first meeting wasn't the best and also maybe when Dan first became a snow leopard he avoided whoever got Suzy's powers (was it holly? I can't recall) because his instincts would tell him to get the fuck away

please, imagine baby arin absolutely horrified of the mass of snakes creeping towards him aaaaa bonus points for suzy having humongous snakes for her ittybitty head so they completely cover her face ovo

Also, imagine Dan, a grown ass man, peeking around the corner to make sure Holly isnt there,,, please, its v important that u imagine this with me.

Forest of Death

summary: Five days given in the Forest of Death. Unfortunately or fortunately for Team 7, it is still only the second day.

“Alright! We might be back to square one but don’t worry guys! We’ll get our second scroll and then we’ll be at the tower in no time!” Naruto exclaims in excitement. He clutches the scroll in his hand. “And since I rested up the whole night, I am all charged up for today!” He raises his fists in the air to pump up his team. “Let’s go! The river’s nearby! I bet some teams would be going there for water!”

Sakura nods with a smile. “Ah, but are you sure you two don’t need more rest? And Sasuke-kun, your fever…”

“I’m fine now,” Sasuke states. “Although, maybe it would be wise to rest a bit longer first.”

“If we keep resting any longer, all the teams will beat us to the tower!” Naruto argues. Sakura and Sasuke glance at each other but they don’t respond back because Naruto had somewhat of a point. “Okay! Then it’s decided! To the river!” Naruto shouts when neither of them argue back. He begins to march forward as he leads the group onwards.

Sasuke begins to follow along but turns his head to the side to glance at Sakura. Something about her seemed a bit off. Her hair was now slightly fixed thanks to Ino’s cutting skills with the kunai. It was still choppy in some parts and undeniably quite short. It was going to take getting used to, seeing Sakura with such short hair. The bruises on her face and body still bothered him to a great extent. Him and Naruto being unconscious had left her worse for wear. He couldn’t help but feeling at fault for each injury on her body.
