the need series

myth-boy  asked:

Eliel & i will always send u prompts if u want i know lots of words

when you were born, they placed a
pair of marbles / in your hands. they wore
the same colour as the sky / above:
a bright blue between your / small fingers,
your smile / as wide as the sun /
& no one had ever been witness / to a
more beautiful sight.

year after year your spine built up /
a fragile & oh so loving thread. on the
surface / of the marbles they found
light specks, staining perfect summer
skies & a prophecy was / weaved
before you could speak:
one day you would break them.

folded anger seeped / into your eyes
so you kept them closed and hidden.
all they ever saw / was the bright blue /
in your shaking grip, shards / and
blood / eventually on your skin; their
tightly knitted ideas / formed a different
damned version of yourself.

You said you like long ass fantasy series can you name some I finished WoT and I am in need of a new series!

Oh man of course. I am always happy to recommend books, seriously, it makes me feel powerful. 

(I’m kidding. Sort of.)

There aren’t a lot of series to match the sheer length of Wheel of Time, and some of the ones that do I haven’t gotten around to reading. But the ones I can think of off the top of my head:

  • Kushiel’s Legacy by Jacqueline Carey: This series is very NSFW and has a lot of BDSM in it, but if you’re a fan of A Song of Ice and Fire I do recommend trying this series - there’s a lot of espionage and intrigue and politics, a female protagonist, canonical queer relationships. Taking place on a near-Earth world where the religion dictates “love as thou wilt”, it follows Phedre, who is basically…designated masochist from birth, and her training to become a political tool and eventually master. The main series is three sizable books, and there’s a following trilogy as well (starting with Kushiel’s Scion) that I can’t vouch for but I know people have read and liked. The first book is Kushiel’s Dart.
  • The Elderlings serieses by Robin Hobb: There are I think…twelve books in this set? All set in the same world, but they come in trilogies that tell complete stories. The first one begins with Assassin’s Apprentice, and that and two other trilogies directly follow FitzChivalry Farseer, the bastard son of a prince who is raised to be a secret assassin for the royal family. These books were very #formative for me, and I legit love Fitz even though (or perhaps because) he’s such a fuckup. 
  • Coldfire Trilogy by C.S. Friedman: This one is only a trilogy, but it’s three thick books and it’s a really good trilogy that more people should read. It’s sort of - dark fantasy and epic fantasy mashup, on a really interesting world and with some fascinating world building, and also one of my favorite morally dubious semi-antagonists that I’ve read. 
  • Belgariad/Malloreon by David Eddings: I feel like objectively the writing quality is not that great, and a lot of this series does follow cliches of fantasy as a genre - but Eddings is really self aware about it, his writing has a very light and humorous touch that is a pleasure to read, and his side characters are all delightful. Also I just…really like Zakath. A lot. 

I haven’t read (yet!) but have heard that the Earthsea Cycle is great. It doesn’t have the huge page count but don’t let that be a drawback, Ursula K. LeGuin is great.

Those are the ones that pop up off the top of my head, though I am certain I’m missing a bunch. Shorter but also worth reading (small fandoms of my heart) is the Rai-Kirah trilogy by Carol Berg. 

Now I feel like I need to go to a bookstore and browse the shelves to remind myself of all the epic fantasy I have read and am forgetting.

PHICHIT-CENTRIC YOI COMIC???

Because I love this child and he needs more love, especially his relationship with Yuuri ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

While Phichit is an incredibly friendly lovable cinnamon roll, he won’t stand for anything threatening his best friend Yuuri, even if the threat happens to be someone Yuuri loves. Yuuri clearly adores the Victor he knows now (just as much as he idolized the distant figure in the past), but Phichit won’t forget how much Victor hurt Yuuri in the past, unintentional or not.

I headcanon that on top of being a skilled figure skater, Phichit is an academic genius who skipped grades and entered college in Detroit super early where he met Yuuri, which explains their long acquaintance despite the age difference. He is very, VERY protective of Yuuri. I’ll put up a more detailed headcanon post later (and if there’s interest, possibly prequel comic of pre-YOI anime Detroit college days).

Also, extra:

PLEASE DO NOT REPOST, EDIT, OR OTHERWISE USE MY ART WITHOUT MY EXPLICIT PERMISSION. More detailed rules available on my Rules & FAQ Post.

some unlucky kiddos :’)

IDK IF ANYONE HAS POINTED THIS OUT BUT

not only did Yuuri have a billion posters of Viktor on his room, he also kept a picture of Viktor FRAMED ON HIS DESK RIGHT WHERE HE COULD ALWAYS SEE IT

and unless it’s merely an animation error not only did he keep a framed picture of Viktor, he also took the time to swap said picture from time to time

AND EVEN AFTER HIS PANIC WHERE HE REMOVED ALL THE POSTERS AFTER VIKTOR’S ARRIVAL HE STILL KEPT THE FRAME

however it’s impossible to tell EXACTLY WHAT is in the frame right now so maybe it’s not Viktor anymore, but instead Vicchan (my poor heart if that’s the case) bUT WHO KNOWS maybe he did keep one picture 

please protect this pure boy at all cost he makes my heart melt he’s so adorable and loved Viktor for so long
