Lindworm

@ofhealinglove You don’t know me and I don’t know you well, but I know you like MadaSaku and life can suck, but MadaSaku always makes things better for me. Story is inspired by the folktale of the Lindworm. I hope you like it.


Once upon a time a queen fell into despair after many years of being unable to carry a child. Her kingdom was without an heir and her home devoid of sweet children. She was weeping in the garden when an old woman approached her, asking about her tears. When the queen told the old woman it was because she was barren the old woman held out a pair of pruning sheers.

“Go into your garden and you will find one red rose and one white rose. If you eat the white rose you will bear a girl, the red rose will give you a son, but be warned, you must only eat one of these roses, to devour both would be unwise.”

“The queen does as the old woman instructs and finds the roses in her garden. Thinking it over, the queen plucks the red rose and eats it, thinking of her future son. But then her heart begins to long for a daughter, and before she can remember the old woman’s warning, she devours the white rose as well.

“Nine months pass and soon comes the time for the queen to deliver her child. Heavy with child, she labors for many hours before she is able to push her child free, but a babe does not greet the midwives. With a roar like that of a fire’s, a lindworm slithers from her room and snakes out the window in wings of long leather. Following the worm, the queen discharges a healthy human boy, wailing in crying. The queen swears her midwives to secrecy and all is well in the land for seventeen and a half odd years.

But then the noble prince grows up and is taken with the heart for adventure of the most rewarding kind. He wishes to find a wife to make his heart sing. With his father’s blessing, he prepares to depart on such a journey when on the road the mighty dragon blocks their path. With the words of moral men the dragon demands a bride as is his birthright. The prince tries three more times, and the same even occurs. Bringing this news home, the queen finally breaks down and reveals her treachery. Yes, the monster is truly her son, and her first born. The young son may not marry until the eldest is taken with a bride.

The king sends for princess of far off kingdoms to please his worm son, but one after the other, they are eaten by the monster on their wedding night. Distraught and in a panic as to what they can do with their son, the king and queen begin kidnapping girls from nearby villages to wed to their son, praying one will break the curse and satisfy his desires.

“And that’s how I ended up here, isn’t it?” Sakura asked with a wicked smirk.

Staring wide eyed, the chancellor gaped openly for a good solid minute before recovering. Pushing his glasses up, the dark haired man squeaked. “Rumors being what they are, there is always exaggeration to be found-“

“Cut the bull, Iruka, I don’t buy it.  Get to the point of what you wanted to say earlier.”

Iruka, to his credit, looked ashamed. “Beg your pardon, but I suspect the allure of marrying into royalty would not move you to give yourself over. I’m sorry, but you are the only one of our staff that does not have a father to speak for her. You’ve been with us only a month, but you’ve never had post or visitors and you don’t go into town. You won’t be…missed.”

Sakura frowned, crossing her arms over her chest and staring out to the side at the gardens she was tending. Her hands were dirty, and her dress was little more than rags fit for working in. She hadn’t tried to look nice in her new office of employment, in fact, she had purposely tied up her hair and kept it wrapped under and scarf so that no one would see it and remember her for it. She liked to remain unnoticed and be the person people forgot about first. It made travel from one place to another easy. 

At least, that’s how she felt when she was working on jobs. When she was freelancing, she was a whole other story.

“Do I have a choice in any of this, or are you going to seize me in the night and drag me gagged and bound before his highness?”

Iruka stuttered. “I-I am so sorry, my good lady. Isn’t there anything you might want? To live as a princess for even a day is more than some girls can hope for.”

“Ah,” Sakura mused, exaggerating the tapping of her chin in thought. “But it is only for one day. To live for one more day, what would I trade for that?”

Iruka looked off to the side and Sakura followed his line of sight to the guards who patrolled back and forth on shifts that rotated ever four to six hours. Poor Iruka, to be the man who strong-arms the girls into this deadly fate.

“I guess there are some things I want. If the king will give these to me, I will consent and marry his worm of a son without complaint.”

“You will?” Iruka’s eyes were almost as wide as when she first recounted the story that had been so closely guarded. Not even the kitchen staff could speak or hear of it, and the kitchen staff knew nearly everything. “W-w-whatever you want, it is yours, the king will surly grant you your wish.”

Sakura held up three fingers. “First, I want seven dresses, each one a half a size larger than the last so that I might wear them all at once. These are the dresses I will wear on my wedding night so I can’t marry him until then. Secondly, on the night of our wedding, in the room where bride and groom consummate their vows, I want a copper basin filled with milk from a cow that is without spot or blemish.”

“Those are…” he struggled to find the words, “odd requests if ever I’ve heard them. What is the third thing you ask for?”

Sakura smiled, cheekily. “I’ll let the king know that myself, since it depends on how the night goes. Once my dresses are made, let me know and I will come for the prince, until then, leave me to work in the garden.”

“You don’t want a room fit for a princess?”

Sakura snorted, turning her back on Iruka and picking up the ho she had been using. In a simple move, she swung the ho out and buried its metal into the dirt. The lines in her back stood out, betraying the secret strength that coiled under her skin. She was a delicate looking creature, but Iruka suspected there was more to her than such a fragile frame. No one else thought to look twice at her, including him, but now he thought better of it. She was a tricky woman, one that set him off balance, and one he was all the better leaving to her own devices.

“I will leave you to your work then, my good lady,” he said with a nod, turning to let the king and queen know of his good news.

God protect those poor souls that are going to watch episode 36 of HxH for the first time on Toonami tonight..they are in for a wild ride

THIS.

THIS page encapsulates all the insanity about Wanda and Vision and their kids.

Understand this, EVERYTHING mentioned here actually HAPPENED.

Yes, they had a double-wedding with a tree spirit animating a dead corpse and some Vietnamese superhero.

Yes, Billy is the (maybe)-reincarnation of their original son (who was conceived with demon magic because Vision in the comics is sterile).

Also Billy has a twin brother called Tommy who got forgotten but yeah, TWO spirit-sons.

Yes their spirit-son is gay and engaged to be married to an alien space-prince.

Everything I’ve written above is actual Marvel comics canon. Look it up.

And people are shocked that Wanda and Vision are a couple to begin with in the MCU?

Friends, if even a fraction of their history gets translated to the big screen, it’s gonna be a wild ride.

I think “sugar addiction” seems to have waned as a popular fake disease to have but man, when that was big it was a wild, wild ride and a deeply stressful ride to be on as a fat person.  It was funny only in that you’d listen to people describe their horrific biochemical symptoms of sugar addiction and realize, “hunger, what she is describing is hunger.”

anonymous asked:

drunk Shisui headcanons?

Shisui Uchiha

•He’s not big on drinking tbh, but when he does, it’s wild ride. Alcohol doesn’t hit Shisui in a gradual way and that’s what’s so startling. He’ll take a drink and be fine, but the next swig and he’s fucking gone

•Soooo fucking loud. Does not shut the fuck up no matter how many times you tell him to chill

•He has trouble walking, looks like he has no coordination at all. You think he’s about to trip and fall but he never does. And if he does, he always catches himself, somehow he manages to keep his balance. He’s a like a damn cat he’ll land graceful af and no one understands how or why

•Overall he’s pretty exuberant when drunk and if he’s not too loud or too overbearing, he’s fun to be around. But it’s only when he’s like just getting drunk. The longer he drinks the riskier it gets

•He gets a little aggressive depending on how much he’s been drinking. Will start a bar fight if prompted. Don’t test him

•He can still hold decent conversations but his words tend to slur the longer he talks. Like he’ll be trying to tell you a funny story (that’s not funny at all by the way) and you’ll hear the first sentence but absolutely nothing else

•Okay but there are the rare times alcohol hits Shisui in a way where he just knocks out. He’ll slowly start getting sleepy and he’ll “lie down to recuperate” but the second he puts his head down he’s out like a light

•Such an enabler. Encourages everyone to keep drinking whenever possible

•He tends to disappear and everyone freaks out like ‘omg where the hell is Shisui???’ He somehow finds his way home every time though. You’d find him sleeping on the kitchen floor the next morning. He also never throws up? No matter how much he drinks? Takes the alcohol like a champ I guess
