the destination of fate

You and your best friend go to a bookstore and find books of your lives. Everything is going well until you look at the chapter list and see that you die at age 24, your current age. With only a few months left, you want to read your book to figure out if you can prevent your death but… you’re told that once you read the book, you are destined for that fate. How do you avoid death? Is there a way to avoid death?

[Major Spoilers] “Follow your true feelings!”: My Musings on P5′s Wildcard Couple

Can we talk about Morgana’s astute observations regarding Akechi’s true feelings for Akira? Can we talk about how (Morgana’s words–not mine) Akechi’s smile when he was hanging out with Akira had been genuine? This boy– who had distanced himself from everyone, who had wrapped himself up in layers upon layers of lies that he wears like a second skin, who had made revenge his one and only goal in life – had also, in spite of himself, serendipitously found kinship in the one boy whom he has decided that he has to kill.

“Give Caroline the life she was meant to have… an immortal life, without you.”

All right, so let me process this whole phrase. The words which catch my eye are “Meant” and “without you”, because bruh, yes, we all know that Caroline Forbes was destined for much more bigger things than Stefan Salvatore, and things that Stefan Salvatore himself could offer her.

When I heard Cade saying that to Stefan, I instinctively had a throwback Thursday to January 2012, when I watched the scene where Klaus visits dying Caroline and offers her the world out there that is waiting for her.

“And I could let you die, if that’s what you want. If you really believe your existence has no meaning. I thought about it myself, once or twice over the centuries, truth will be told. But I’ll let you in on a little secret. There is a whole world out there, waiting for you. Great cities and art and music, genuine beauty. And you can have all of it. You can have a thousand more birthdays. All you have to do is ask.”

 Ok, now back to Cade’s words : “Give Caroline the life she was meant to have… an immortal life, without you.” – so this basically means that Klaus Mikaelson, knew that Caroline Elizabeth Forbes wasn’t supposed to die, because she was meant to have that immortal life.

He also knew it when he told her that he hoped that she’d turn up at his door in a year, or maybe even in a century.

He also knew it when he left that message for her, “maybe one day you’ll let me.”

He also knew it when he promised her the eternal love back on her graduation day. His words were absolutely intentional and he had analyzed his words in a way that no one had.

He also knew it when he promised to leave and never come back because he also knew, that an immortal life that she was destined with, with the plans that fate had for her, she would be his - at last.

Klaus Mikaelson predicted her having an immortal life, and he knew that she was not supposed to die neither in his hands, nor in someone else’s.

 Klaus Mikaelson knew that Caroline was meant to have a thousand more birthdays.

Klaus Mikaelson knew that Caroline was meant to see great cities, and art and music and genuine beauty.

Klaus Mikaelson knew that Caroline was meant to eventually fall for the person who is only capable of doing terrible things, meaning himself.

For me these two scenes ( Cade’s phrase and Klaroline’s interaction in 3x11) parallel each-other on so many levels, that it’s hard to believe that Klaus and Caroline are that golden.

Caroline Forbes was destined to have this immortal life not with Matt, Tyler, Stefan  but Klaus.

With Klaus Mikaelson.

that’s how you OTP. 

The horoscope is a highly complex astronomical map based not only on date of birth but on the time, year, and place as well. We must first, therefore, discard all preconceptions and prejudice based on popular magazine astrology, which has virtually nothing to do with the actual study

The birth map does not plot the fate of the individual in a predestined way. Rather, it symbolizes the basic lines of his character’s potential development. It takes a minimum of thought to realize that a man will act and shape his life according to his needs, fears, and abilities, and that these needs, fears, and abilities stem from his inherent disposition. In this sense character is fate, and if we are ignorant of our own natures - as most of us are who have never explored the unconscious - then the stars cannot be blamed for the fact that we run headlong and blind along the course we ourselves have chosen. The more shallow interpretation of fate and free will - fate is what I am ‘destined’ to do, while free will is what I 'choose’ to do myself - makes it impossible to see the subtle paradox that these two opposites are one and the same

Part five ‘All things’ Missing scene Scully POV  (Epilogue) Post ep Mulder POV

Part one ‘Orison’ here

Part two ‘Per manum’ here

Part three ‘Sein und zeit’ here

Part four ‘En Ami’ here


I wake up suddenly, instantly guilty that I managed to literally pass out right in the middle of listening to Mulder waxing lyrical on the potentiality of fate, of the different paths we are destined to take throughout our lives; the paths in fact that we ourselves have taken to bring us right here to this point in time in our strange partnership.

Sometimes I have trouble categorising exactly what it is we share, what exactly is the product of our seven year history together that has seen us fight and fall and push ourselves far away from each other so many times; only to somehow always manage to re-connect once more? 

 More than once I have tried to rationalise this thing we have, this us that is separate from our working lives but at the same time, the threads of our professional history are still wound tightly around us, refusing to fully separate, to allow us to be the people we both yearn to be.  I’m not stupid, I know that a normal life can never be for us, that what others take for granted – a home, a family, simple pleasures that are nothing and everything at the same time – are distressingly unobtainable.  

Because even if Mulder and I had chosen to keep hold of the feelings for each other that we had denied for so long and instead turned to others to help fill in the blanks in our lives that our work on the X-Files had brought upon us, I still believe that those simple life expectations could never be for us.  Too much has happened and too much has been lost and I came to realise a very long time ago that I could never risk bringing in anyone from outside this frightening world we inhabit; that enough innocents have been lost to our quest already.  The blood on my hands is ever present and I know with a certainty that paralyses me at times, that I will never be able to completely cleanse myself of the guilt I carry around with me for the part I played in the destruction of the relationships and the people I loved.

Langst Oneshot


I love Lance :’) I swear…

Warnings: Self esteem issues, heavy angst, crying

Don’t repost this anywhere. I’ll be uploading it to Ao3 later ]


They don’t like you.

You’re annoying.

You’re useless.

You’re stupid.

What do you bring to the team?


You bring nothing.

Why can’t you be better?

Why can’t you be stronger?



More like Keith?

Lance let out a broken sob, tears trickling down his cheeks. He wasn’t cut out for this, for defending the universe. He let himself believe for awhile that he was destined for this. That it was fate that brought him to Pilot the Blue Lion. But he quickly had learned that he was wrong. He wasn’t special. He didn’t have any particular skills or any likeable qualities. The Blue Lion picked him because she was the most accepting and willing for someone to pilot her, and the others were meant to pilot the others. Lance was lucky he had even been taken along anyway.

He was surprised the others hadn’t decided to just dump him off somewhere and replace him by now. He was sure they could find someone that was better than him every single way.

None of them would miss him. He annoyed the princess, Shiro didn’t take him seriously, Hunk had Pidge now to talk about tech stuff with, Coran was always so busy with the castle, and Keith hated him.

They probably all hated him.

The thought make his body shake as he let out another sob. God, why couldn’t he stop crying? He was being a selfish baby.  If the others saw him like this, they’d definitely think he was too weak and fragile to pilot Blue, and they were right.

They thought he was egotistical and confident and that nothing ever fazed him. But it was wrong, so wrong. In reality Lance knew he was as fragile as glass. He was so easy to shatter, and his surface was already cracking. Lance had pretended for so long. He had bragged and boasted and declared himself the hero, but he had lied. The words had left a bitter taste in his mouth every time he spoke them, and the smiles were now as fake as him. He’d painted them on his face to hide what he was really feeling.  

You’ll never be a hero.

Just look at you.

You’re just a burden.

You’re dragging the whole team down.

His grip tightened on his brown hair and he sucked in a shuddering breath. He needed to stop crying, he needed to paint that smile back on his face. He needed to get up before someone came looking for him and found him crying on the floor. With shaky legs, he pushed himself up onto his feet and swayed for a few seconds. He wanted to just lie back down and curl in his bed and cry till he was empty of tears. But dinner would be ready soon, and he couldn’t not go. He couldn’t make them suspicious. Trembling, he dragged himself into the bathroom and hunched over the sink, splashing water into his face before he stood back up. Staring at his reflection made him cringe. His eyes were red rimmed and his face was wet with tears and sweat. His lips were pressed into a flat line. He looked awful. With a broken sounding sigh, he began to wash his face.

After a few minutes, he couldn’t even tell that he had been crying, his eyes losing the redness. A tired smile stretched across his face and he ran a hand through his hair. No one would notice a thing.

They don’t care.

Lance paused and shook his head. Of course they cared. They were good people, and they were his friends. But they had more important things on their minds to worry about; Lance wasn’t worth wasting their thoughts on.

Grabbing his jacket, he pulled it into his shoulders and swept out of his room, and down the corridor. He spent the walk in silence, face blank from emotion and hands swinging loosely at his sides.

When he reached the door to the dining room, it opened with a whoosh and Lance stepped inside, the smile plastered back on his face and his voice calling out a greeting.

No one noticed it was fake.

Cards Against Humanity

Another fic with Mark, Ethan and Tyler. 
You’re simply playing the infamous card game and you are stuck with the same topic of cards for the whole game.  

Originally posted by roanox

You could already tell this was going to be a terrible video. 
Already Ethan was giggling uncontrollably and you were hiding your own smile behind your cards. After the terrible intro at the start, you were already shaking your head and gently banging your head on the desk. 

“Mark, you’re the Czar,” Tyler pointed out, his sighs already becoming frequent. Mark quickly picked up a black card and you readied yourself, already peeking at your choices fanned out in your hand. 

“What is society currently lacking?” Mark read out loud. 
You were already stifling your laughter behind your hands, and Ethan joined you as the two of you collapsed on the table in a heap of breathless pants. 
“We just started!” Mark exclaimed with false anger. “Stop laughing and give me your cards!”
Your hand was shaking as you slid the white card across the table in front of Mark. 
“No looking!”  You snapped as he peeked between his fingers. 
“Fine, fine! Hurry up!” He called, covering his eyes with his hands. 
Tyler shuffling through his hand, taking his time with his choice. Ethan rolled his eyes and you reached across the table to flick Mark’s ear. 
“Oi!”  He yelled, jerking back in shock. 
Finally, Tyler slapped his card on the table and Ethan scrambled the three cards together. Adding a fourth for “rando”
“Alright,” Mark started as he removed his hands from his eyes. “What is society currently lacking?” 
“A towering mountain of dildos.” Ethan’s cheeks puffed out with silenced laughter. 
“A sea of your victims children?!” Mark looked over at you with a horrified expression. 
“Why are you looking at me?” You yelled. “What makes you think I would have a sea of my victims children?” 
“Cause you have victims!” Tyler and Mark replied in unison. 
Ethan threw back his head and laughed, “Why do you have victims?” 
“Because (Y/N) is a monster!” Mark hissed dramatically. “If you’re not careful, they’ll eat your spleen and pull your stomach out through your di-”
Mark couldn’t finish his sentence as his body started bubbling with laughter. You and Tyler shook you heads, grinning. “Just read the cards!” Tyler half yelled. 
“Alright, alright! What is society lacking? A lovely garden of Hell’s ghouls.” Mark made a face at that. “And finally, society is lacking….well-written Septiplier fan-fiction.”
Tyler and Ethan roared with laughter and you slid down your chair as Mark’s narrowed eyes turned to you. 

“This one is yours!” He accused, frantically tapping your card. 
“Possibly,” You said with a grin.
He shook his head and looked down at the cards. You could see the argument raging inside his head between his pride and his sense of humor. 
Finally, he sighed and slid the black card over to you. With a wide grin, you happily accepted the black card and picked up another. 
You smiled and bit your lip before reading; 
“What is Septiplier made of?” 
Mark looked like he was going to murder you on camera. The other two men were chuckling, looking for the perfect card. 
“You’re making that up,” Mark said and you shook you head. 
“No, look!” You turned the black card so the YouTuber could see it. He made a face and grumbled as he turned to his hand of cards. 
You covered your eyes with your hands and titled your head back. 
“I ship it,” You quietly whispered. 
“Silence!”  Mark bellowed and you chuckled. 
Ethan tapped your arm and you removed your hands to gather the cards in your hands. 
“What is Septiplier made of?” 
“A false sense of security,” 
“Whatever Lily makes it. Who the fuck is Lily?” You asked and the boys shook their heads. 
“Your Mum!” You read loudly, with a over-exaggerated flick of your head.
“And finally, Septiplier is made up of old men in sweat-pants.” 
You shook you head, another wave of giggles over-coming you. 
“I have to go with old men and sweat-pants.” 
Tyler reached over and plucked the black card from your fingers.
Mark sighed, “I’m feeling s attacked right now.” 
“Get over it,” Tyler said as he smugly waved the black card in front of Mark’s face.

When after a few rounds of CAH, you found a trend in your hands. It seemed to never end. Every time you picked up, it was another Septiplier card. 
You sighed and rolled your head back, groaning dramatically. 
“Another bad one?” Ethan asked and you shrugged. 
“I wouldn’t consider it bad,” You said. 
Tyler picked up the black card and cleared his throat before reading, “Blank plus blank, equals blank.” 
Your mind had already made up the sentence before Tyler had finished and you let loose a loud bark of laughter, making Mark and Ethan jump in their chairs. 
“Akuma-your-tatas, (Y/N).” Mark hushed, reaching over to stroke your shaking shoulders. You only responded with a breathless shake of your head. 
You slid your three cards over the table to rest in front of Tyler, who was using his beanie to cover his eyes. 

When rando’s cards were put in place, Tyler removed his beanie and picked up the first set of cards. 
“Anus plus glue, equals a sticky situation” Mark giggled loudly, obviously marking the sentence as his. Tyler read it with a stone face as always.
“A whale plus a dog, equals satanic rituals.” The thee of you made faces and Ethan raised his hand and innocently squeaked. 
“I had to get rid of some cards.” 
Tyler picked up another trio of cards, and by the look on his face, he had picked up yours. 
“Hot, sweaty bodies plus a choir of moans, equals a sexy night with Jack and Mark.”
“(Y/N)!” Mark hollered and you quickly fled from your chair as the man leapt at you.
“I had to get rid of some cards!” You squealed as his arms snagged your waist and lifted you into the air. Tyler and Ethan were slapping the table, their faces scrunched up with laughter as Mark spun you around, yelling unintelligible curses at you. 
“I ship it!” You cried out, “Accept your fate, Mark! Be with the one your destined for!” 
“NEVER!” Mark yelled, throwing you into the couch.
