the last of the cake lords


On 4 April, 2009, an 11-year-old boy and his 10-year-old brother led two boys, one who was 11-years-old and the other who was 9-years-old, to a steam in Edlington, South Yorkshire. The two boys claimed they wanted to show the other two boys some toads. When they arrived at the decided location, the brothers unleashed unimaginable torture on the two youngsters.

They were bitten, battered with bricks, stabbed with sharpened branches, strangled with barbed wire, forced to walk on and eat glass, and burnt. In addition, the young boys were forced to carry out sexual acts on one another. The sadistic brothers even stubbed out lit cigarettes in their open wounds and poked sticks into their sores. A discarded sink was dropped onto the older boy’s head while the duo stamped on the young boys genitals and burnt their eyelids and ears.

When they became too “tired” to carry on with the vicious attack, they left them to die in the stream. Miraculously, the 9-year-old managed to pull himself up and crawl to help. His 11-year-old friend said: “I can’t see and I can’t move my body. You go, and I’ll just die here,” but when the 9-year-old found help, the first thing he told them was to go and save his friend. Both young boys survived but with physical and psychological scars that will last a lifetime. The man who found the younger boy, caked in blood, said “his neck had been sliced open from ear to ear. Lord knows what with.“

“The Torture Brothers” as they became known filmed the entire ordeal on their mobile phones, which was entered as evidence during their trial. They were sentenced to an indeterminate period in custody with a minimum of five years, and in December of 2016, they were granted lifelong anonymity. They have since been released.

A/N: I had the absolute best intentions to get this story done by the EFE deadline, but alas, it’s not finished. This is the first chapter, more to come. This was an amazing prompt and I have loved revisiting some of my favorite Jane Austen stories for inspiration. I have more in store for these two.

Betaing magic and much needed moral support by the incomparable @xerxia31. @alliswell21, thanks for this wonderfuul prompt, I hope I do it justice. @javistg, thanks so much for this fantastic challenge and opportunity to collaborate!

Fandoms as aesthetics

Sherlock: nimble fingers plucking at violin strings slowly and deliberately, a cold and exhilarating night run, green tea and black coffee.

Doctor who: galaxies in the night sky, displaying awesome colors of dark teal and brilliant gold, wind rushing though your hair, child-like joy and wonder.

Supernatural: classical rock blaring out of an old car radio with windows down, old books being flipped open and the dust rushing out of them, water splashed onto your face in the morning.

Night Vale: the hot, out of place desert air blowing through your window as you drift to sleep, the oddly comforting yet terrifying sense that darkness can bring, a soft and deep voice soothing your troubled mind and soul.

Homestuck: 5 hour phone conversations, fast paced and relentless beat that forces you to dance, a long, foggy road with twists and turns that lead you in the wrong direction and back again.

Pokemon: camping trips with friends, discovering something new every single day, fresh grass, morning dew, the elation of victory and the heart crushing burn of defeat.

Merlin: confident queens wearing velvet gowns decorated in golden chains and an air of nobility, the harsh clang of metal against metal, true friendship that lasts through centuries.

Ouran: elegant chandeliers made of silver and crystal, soft sky blue suits that make rustling sounds as they brush together, sweet strawberry cake, ice sculptures, the fluttering of cherry petals as they drift aimlessly in the breeze.

Hetalia: nights shared around a table, friends sharing drinks as they talk about trivial things: Friday night plans, stories from their pasts, work. Playing pool in the basement, throwing darts at the board and missing horribly, song and laughter in an otherwise empty and bleak world.

Lord of the Rings/ the Hobbit: the delicious smell of fresh bread, the satisfying crunch as you spilt it in half. Cheery taverns and towns with cobbled roads, mischievous children stealing things they’re not supposed to.

Legend of Zelda: solitary journeys. Music lightly played on an ocarina, creatures of magic trapped inside glass bottles, the moon’s cooling rays shining upon you and the sun generously giving you light to bask in.

Percy Jackson: waves lapping calmly at a white sand beach, teenagers laughing by day and singing campfire songs by night. Wildflowers, grilled food, wine, scents that shouldn’t go together but do.

Harry Potter: dark, looming forests full of monsters and sprites. Dusty books with forbidden secrets, white magic swirling like snow, the feathered wings of owls soaring high above the tree tops.

X files: the click of high heels in hallways illuminated only by fluorescent lights, mysterious sounds when you’re home alone, losing yourself in something you love.

Gravity falls: adventure. Flashlights shining into dark caves, blowing out your candle in the dark and trusting, hoping that nothing is there, scary stories told by the light of a dying fire.

Ib: an old art gallery with paintings of all kinds, wandering through hallways alone, the feeling that someone is watching you, yet knowing that you are indeed by yourself.

Avengers: old, forgotten spells contained in books written in Nordic runes, helicopter blades whirling quickly, the adrenaline of combat thick in your blood.

Portal: laboratories with white walls and bubbling test liquids contained in glass flasks. Logic and math, ambiguity heavy in the air.

Avatar/legend of korra: calloused hands working on a farm, meditating on a cliff facing a roaring sea, friends watching the sunset together. Rebellion and standing up for what is right.

If  you want to you can follow me back <3 I’ll give you extra cake!!

we walk
hand in hand
away from the world we built
that is burning.

yours are blistered
where chemical flames licked your skin
and mine are cut from the glass of the windows
we broke with our fists.

you are my last love
and i buckle you into the passenger seat
drive until the sky turns dark, light, dark again.

you sleep until the second light
when the dawn colors the sky muted and sunbleached
and you reach across the console
to touch your thumb to the dimple of my chin,
to put your hand through my hair
which is still caked with mud.

your lips make words
your hands make words
our bodies, sentences
coming together in ways that do not make sense.
i wear your shirt home and do not think about fire again.
you leave with a grin and a two fingered salute.

two nights, two dawns, 
then we start again.
me in the passenger seat, this time.
you with mud caked in your hair
hands still raw.

Sooooooo, Tenka’s Ai no Ran Christmas battle event split the 12 samurais into six unusual pairings, right. And their bonus chibi (which requires you to feed each lord 850 cakes to unlock) is choir /carolling angel above *squeals*. 

Looking at the chibis I wonder why some of them sing and some just ring a bell (hahahah) then I realised that if you pair them with the classic pairing above, each pair consists of a bell ringer and a carolling angel, fufufufu ^^

Last three images were screencap of the rich and fabulous Tenka player who have managed to get these chibis despite the fact that the battle just started 36 hours ago. Oh, oh yes, starting with this battle you can have two chibis in your castle! There are Santa and Rudolph chibis too as ranking prize. The way this game demands your money is insane and effective

"you are a tolerable drunk" orrrrr "don't even bother with clothes" - zimbits :>>>>

omg let me take a stab at writing check please, i’m excited and also v. nervous.

It’s an average Saturday night at the Haus. There’s an epic pong tournament going down (Shitty and Ransom vs Lardo and Holster), and as can be expected Lardo is killin’ it. The Frogs are holding court in the kitchen, surrounded by the girls’ volleyball team and telling big stories about their hockey accomplishments (Bitty loves Dex and Nursey, but they are so competitive and start telling tall tales and it usually ends in a fight). A bunch of other guys from the team are milling about, chatting up the sorority girls that came from who knows where and trading glares with Lacrosse team that seems to think they’re crashing. Bitty invited them himself, so he’s not really sure if it counts as crashing anymore. 

Most importantly, Bitty is sitting on the disgusting couch right next to the one any only Jack Zimmermann. Jack smells like old spice and a little like sweat and a whole lot like winter and Bitty’s consumed enough of Lardo’s dangerously sweet sangria that he’s considering asking him about that. Because honestly, how can a person smell like winter and ice? That’s not actually a thing. 

Instead, Bitty takes another sip of his third fourth fifth sangria, regarding Jack thoughtfully over the rim of the red solo cup. Jack seems to be quietly amused, his lips lifting just slightly and his eyes crinkling in the corners. He smiles across the room at Shitty before turning those baby blues on Bitty, continuing to smile fondly. It makes Bitty all warm and gooey inside, like the chocolate lava cake they had at Winter Screw last year. Good lord, he is so gone on this boy.

psh yeah I totally followed the prompt yeah totally definitely

just kidding i cheated a lot srry

-birthday surprise-

pairing: gruvia (duh)

summary: “I love you, Stripper.”

sidenote : how I imagine –>this<– au series when they all grown up


“…Happy birthday Juvia!” Lucy cheered, and suddenly my apartment lights flickered on to reveal a small cast of my friends crowded around my kitchen table, an ice cream cake decoratively placed in the center.

I, of course, was comically pushed up against the wall in a defensive position, embarrassed that I had actually thought someone had broke into my apartment. I saw the door open and immediately assumed I was under attack, I guess. Under attack b Lucy’s affection, more like.

“We love you, Juvi-bean!” Lucy cackled, squishing her cheek up next to mine and blowing some tiny bubbles in my face.

“Hurry up already, the cake is melting!” I heard Erza bark from somewhere behind Evergreen.

“Good lord, save the cake!” I cried, mostly just to humor Erza.

Levy began cutting out tiny pieces, per Lucy’s instructions, apparently we were all collectively on some diet she had recently invented, or something.

“Come on, come on, Juvia, you have to open presents now! Mine’s the best!” Lucy insisted, yanking my arm around like she had just assumed it was already dislocated and could move every-which-way.

“Calm down, I haven’t even gotten cake yet,” I insisted, hoping to put a small delay on Lucy’s excitement. Last year she had gotten me a double date with her and Natsu, which hadn’t turned out well, at all. As in, a restaurant burned down and I’m pretty sure Natsu was formally charged with aggravated assault. Not sure how it all quite happened, but it did, and I will be forever wary of Lucy’s impending presents.

”Hurryup. Hurryup. Hurryup. Hurryup.” She repeated robotically as I ate, slow as syrup. I had enough time to converse with my friends before Lucy finally did manage to drag me to the front of the room for my ceremonial birthday gifting, or whatever she calls it.

“Ladies and gentlemen – presenting Juvia Lockser on her twenty-third birthday, looking not a day over fifteen-“

Ok, wow Lucy. Way too young.

“-stunning as ever. We all came here to celebrate another day, in her god-given life,” Lucy pretended to wipe a tear dribbling down her cheek. “Happy birthday Juvia. I love you the most.”

“She’s lying!” Erza yelled, just to piss off Lucy.

“-Oh whatever Erza, you’re only here because of Dairy Queen!” lucy smarted, before looking down at me evilly. “and now, without further ado…”

Lucy’s cool hands slipped behind the back of my neck and flipped my hair over the back of my shoulders gently.

“Close your eyes~” she whispered creepily, and for a short second I thought back to the time I had tricked her into thinking Erza and I were lesbian lovers. No Lucy! I don’t swing that way, I swear-

The blindfold brought silence to my world of sight and immediately I regretted even coming home. Even sleeping on the park bench would’ve been better than whatever the hell was about to go down.

I let myself be dragged outsie my apartment, and down a flight of stairs, I think, and into another apartment, Lucy’s, I suspected.

“Have fuuuunn!” I heard Lucy prattled, spinning me into the room and slamming the door shut behind me. I scrambled to tear off my blindfold, only to find that the room I was now locked in was still pitch black.

“What the hell-“ I fumbled for a light switch and failed, making hand-slapping noises that resonated through the empty apartment.

At least, I assumed it was empty.

My eyes blinked fervently to adjust to the darkness, and soon enough I could make out shapes and blobs of furniture. That didn’t stop me from slamming my toes into a counter.

Ow, son of a-“

I felt a hand slip over my mouth and I bit it instinctively.

“Juvia, jesus what the hell is wrong with you!”

The hand pulled away. “Sorry. I thought you were Hannibal Lector.”

Gray sighed. “Oh yeah, happy birthday Juvia! We brought you an iconic cannibal! Have fun!”

“Very funny, but we’’re talking about Lucy here. Anything could happen.” I reasoned smartly. “Where’s the light switch?”

“I’m not allowed to tell you,” he admitted. “We’re here to have some fun…”

Even with the lights out, I could perfectly picture his fingers wiggling dramatically.

“Did you bring Mario Kart?” I asked hopefully.

No,” he answered, most likely scowling. “Even better.

I heard a scarping sound, like when a seven year old rips the Velcro off of their sneakers on their way indoors.

“…What the hell was that?”

I could hear Gray grinning.

“Lucy bought them for me.” He explained partly, followed by another similar sound.

“That doesn’t-“

“She paid me twenty bucks to do this.”

“Gray, what-“

Another Velcro sound.

“Gray, what the hell is happening!” I demanded, reaching blindly for something to grab, like his throat. He easily swatted me away with a patient ­tut-tut-tut.

“No touching, not yet…” He jeered. Another Velcro sound. I almost screamed.

“Gray, if you don’t tell me what’s going on, I’m gonna start screaming.” I threatened. Another Velcro sound.

“One.” I counted.


“Two,” I continued.


“Three,” I said with finality, reathing in to let out a nice scream, only to have y mouth be met by his hand once again.

“Sh-h, goodness, you’ll give the neighbors a heart attack,” he warned. “Don’t worry, I’m almost done…”

“Gray, this is creepy as fuck, tell me what’s going on or-“


“Aaaand, all done!” He announced, one of his hands winding around my waist and pressing my body up against his.

“Ah! What the fuck, Gray is that your junk?!” I screeched, pushing him away from me with impressive force.

“Heh-heh. No, that’s the sock puppet I keep in my front pocket.”

Gross, if you think this is romantic, you’re dead wrong, you crackbab-“

He put something I  my hand made out of cloth and I realized he wasn’t lying about the sock puppet. It was filled with cotton balls and I stifled the urge to laugh out loud.

“Gray…” I asked testily.


“Are you…naked?”


“How naked?”

“Fifth base.”

“What sport has five bases?”

“Love, Juvia. Love has five bases.”

Coming to an odd conclusion, I spoke again. “Gray…were you just wearing stripper pants?”

“I told you Lucy gave them to me.” He answered. “They were freakishly comfortable, but I’m kind of afraid to find out who had them before me.”

“Stop.” I advised, loosening my grip on his shoulders and relaxing into him.

“I really don’t think you want me to, birthday girl…” he rasped, and I felt something poke my collarbone gently.

“Did you just lick me?”

“Shut up! I’m trying to be sexy.” He whined.

“…But you totally just licked me!”

“You taste like lavender.”

“You’re really sweaty.”

“You love me.” He accused, lifting me off my feet so I was hovering inches off the ground, his hands firmly wrapped around my thighs and the front of my legs squishing against his inevitably bare chest.

“A little bit, yeah.”

“You love me a lot. You obsess over me. You write Mrs. Gray Fullbuster all over your journals-“

“What journals?”

“-And you dream about ravishing me, and you always want to impress me-“

Ravishing? Are we talking about me, or Jellal?”

“-say it.”

“Say what?” I inquired, pressing my finger against what I assumed was his lips. It was still dark, so I only got the confirmation I deserved when he licked my finger.

“You know.” He hinted almost shyly.

“I love you, Stripper.”

“Knew it.”

“You’re mean.”

“You’re heavy.” He tossed me up to regain a better grip on my legs. “…you do know there’s a reason why Lucy locked us in here, right?”

“Sure do,” I responded, swooping down and kissing his forehead. I was aiming for his lips, but close enough anyways.

He threw me over his shoulder like a sack of old potatoes and strolled towards the bedroom. And the only thing keeping us from it was a few run-ins with the wall, and the coffee table and the couch.

Young and awkard 15 year old percabeth had been fighting but they get trapped in an elevator for like two hours so they have to talk. Could you make headcanons or a fic about that? Thank you! You are the best and I love your blog! Have a nice day!

  • they had been arguing all day long
  • what it started over, no one could tell you (except the Aphrodite girls will tell you it’s because Percy brought up Rachel when Annabeth was clearly trying to get him to ask her out)
  • all anyone knew was that when it got this bad it was best to just stay as far away as possible
  • they argued as they climbed the rock wall
  • they argued as they sparred
  • they even argued about their arguing while both arguing with Clarisse
  • then they got a note summoning them to some random building to run an errand for Hermes  
  • they argued the entire time they were in the van about the origin of seat belts and which streets Argus should take in case of traffic
  • when they got into the elevator they finally were giving each other a break
  • until the elevator jerked to a halt
  • screaming for help was interrupted by screaming at each other

  • Percy and Annabeth, red and sweaty from being stuffed in the elevator, just glared 
  • Hermes explained that he needed their opinion on the font for his new logo 
  • “Are you serious?” Percy asked

A/N: Oh my…you like my side benefits? Give me a moment to collect myself, if you would. While I collect myself, here’s something I typed up! Enjoy. 

Time For Tea:

Taking tea was hardly ever a scandalous affair, especially when one took tea with agreeable hosts and mutual acquaintances that took delight in light conversation. It was not like dancing, where one’s hand could brush in places that were not-so appropriate, neither was it hunting where couples could incidentally become separated from the group and fall into actions of an indiscreet sort. Yes, tea was an agreeable time for all. It was safe, and was pleasant.

It was not quite so agreeable, however, when tea was taken with Orlesians.

“Oh, Lord Solas, truly you must tell me of this flower that you’re so taken with!” The Lady Nightingale sat on the divan, and her bright and dangerous eyes pinned Lupa to her seat. Lupa uncomfortably sipped her own tea, trying to dispel the snakes that were busy writhing in her stomach. From beside her, Lord Solas set his small plate of finger sandwiches down.

Hi, hope I'm not bothering you or anything, but do you think sweetsleep is related to any real life plant or medicine? Most of the poisons, and concoctions in ASOIAF I can connect at least to some real life substance, except for Sweetsleep which seems to have no real life equivalent, as far as I can tell. Is it maybe not even a plant but a mixture of several things, seeing as it is a poison? Is there even enough information on it in the text to even haphazard a guess?

Certainly you’re not bothering me, I love questions like this. :) Let’s see, what do we know about sweetsleep:

“Sweetsleep is the gentlest of poisons,” the waif told [Arya], as she was grinding some with a mortar and pestle. “A few grains will slow a pounding heart and stop a hand from shaking, and make a man feel calm and strong. A pinch will grant a night of deep and dreamless sleep. Three pinches will produce that sleep that does not end. The taste is very sweet, so it is best used in cakes and pies and honeyed wines. Here, you can smell the sweetness.”

–AFFC, Cat Of The Canals (Arya III)

“Give his lordship a cup of sweetmilk,” she told the maester. “That will stop him from shaking on the journey down.”
“He had a cup not three days past,” Colemon objected.
“And wanted another last night, which you refused him.”
“It was too soon. My lady, you do not understand. As I’ve told the Lord Protector, a pinch of sweetsleep will prevent the shaking, but it does not leave the flesh, and in time…”

–AFFC, Alayne II (Sansa III)

I’ve tried researching a bit, and sweetsleep doesn’t appear to have any exact real world equivalent. (I don’t think most of ASOIAF’s poisons or medicines have an exact correlation to the real world; this site has an interesting argument that the strangler is a nicotine salt, but I can’t imagine an equivalent for basilisk blood paste, which causes a violent madness in all warm-blooded animals.) But even though nothing resembles sweetsleep exactly, its properties can be found in several medicinal herbs:

  • Digitalis, from foxgloves, is an old remedy for heart conditions, edema, and epilepsy. (The last is notably relevant for Robert Arryn’s condition.) Digitalis is extremely toxic in overdose – in fact the whole plant is deathly poisonous, which is why foxgloves are sometimes called “dead man’s bells”. Also, usage of digitalis over time can result in a buildup of toxicosis with serious negative effects.
  • Valerian has been used as remedy for insomnia since ancient times. It’s also been used as a sedative and anti-convulsant (also relevant for Sweetrobin), and to help with nerves. But it has no notable side-effects or toxicity.
  • Glycyrrhizin is derived from the licorice plant, and is very sweet. It’s used (commonly in Chinese medicine) to treat ulcers, as a cough suppressant, as a diuretic, and as an antiviral, among many other uses. However, ingesting too much can cause “licorice poisoning”, which is signified by very low potassium levels and very high blood pressure.

So, in sweetsleep we have the sweetness of glycyrrhizin, the sleep-inducing and calming and anti-convulsant qualities of valerian, and the anti-epilepsy and toxic buildup qualities of digitalis. But is sweetsleep actually made from licorice and valerian and foxgloves mixed together, or is it from some unique-to-Terros magical plant or mineral that has all the required features at once? That we don’t know, and I doubt GRRM will bother telling us (not every poison will have a maester who will ramble on about the details of how it’s made). All that really matters is the fact that Sansa’s only been told that sweetsleep is a medicine, not a poison, and doesn’t know how dangerous it is for her cousin to keep using it.

Hope that helps!
