10 Tips From a Cosplayer

Okay, so I’ve been doin this nonsense for about 8 years now and here are my 10 biggest tips for anyone else doing this sadistic hobby (This is a bit geared towards people who make costumes just FYI. I will post another more geared for beginners or those who buy later)

1) Remember Why You Do This.

Maybe you showed up to con and were 1 of 74 Jinx’s. Or maybe your costume wasn’t as accurate as someone else’s. Or maybe it feels like everyone else made theirs and you bought yours. So what? Did you have fun? Did you meet friends, and/or bond with the people you came with? Unless you’re in the contests, remember that it ISN’T a contest. And even the contests are meant to be fun. Alternatively, don’t let any elitist fans ruin your fun.

2) Don’t Take Yourself So Seriously.

Remember that being a cosplayer doesn’t make you ‘more’ of a fan than someone who doesn’t. Remember that you do this for your own enjoyment and that is all that matters. Spend as long or as little as you want on a costume, end a con with 20 silly selfies and some new friends, compliment that other cosplayer in the same outfit because you clearly both have something in common, don’t think of them as competition.

3) Don’t Be Afraid to Ask for Help.

Parents, siblings, teachers, friends, neighbors, craft store employees, theater teachers, art teachers, people online. There are tons of people who could offer help with even little things like what glue to use on foam that needs heatshaping(non-flammable x-treme elmers glue is nice) , what paint to use on leggings (apparently fabric paint stretches with it just fine), ask your grandma what stitch is best for rounded edges on cotton (idk), ask a JoAnn’s associate what thread to use. In my experience store associates are extremely helpful, even with things like a second opinion on matching colors.

4) Use Coupons.

Seriously. If you can, set up an email just for coupons. Going to Michaels for a 2 dollar little thing of paint? Use that coupon they emailed you and now it’s 75 cents and you have more money for other things like fancy fabric or idk food. Check if any stores have student or teacher or senior discounts if that’s applicable, then you’ll have a discount even without coupons. Especially good for big purchases. If you’re buying everything at once there is almost definitely some sort of 5 off of 30 type of coupon out there. If you are able, this is a good way to set up a savings for con or your next costume maybe, just look at the receipt, see how much you saved and set that much (or a part) aside for food/hotel/gas/merch.

5) Look at your Source.

No matter how well you know your character or your design do not go very long without looking at the source. Working on a wig? Have a picture in front of you the whole time. Maybe sketch out the different angles beforehand. Going fabric shopping? Stare at the original. If you print out a reference pic know that it may be slightly off. If you’re doing a costume where the color seems different in every shot (like Rey from Star Wars) then pick the one you like. If you can, consider coloring or painting a swatch of the color on an index card and bringing it with you to compare. Seriously. Keep checking the source when working. It’s equivalent to “measure twice cut once”.

6) Measure Twice Cut Once.

Even in crunch. I know, it’s stressful and scary and frustrating but you know what is more frustrating and scary and stressful? It being 8pm the night before the con and you just cut that last bit of fabric too small. Or your wig too short. Seriously. Just double check yourself.

7) Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself.

Outdated meme but useful tip. If you’re getting anxious to a difficult level, or exhausted physically or mentally  address it. Take a break. Take a nap. Eat a meal. Go for a walk. Watch an episode of that show you’re trying to cosplay. Play that game. Watch cosplay videos if you’re scared of losing motivation. Just don’t push yourself too hard or you risk messing up parts of your costume and more importantly, you risk hurting yourself. Don’t work until you accidentally stab yourself with a hot iron and have a panic attack. Would you rather spend 15 minutes playing with your cat or crying and bandaging yourself?


8) Use It.

Found some fabric you love for that SnK skirt thing, but it’s infused with glitter?Who cares, use it. Every cosplay you have seen of Red Hood has a lot of leather and cargo pants but you want skinny jeans and suede? Use it. The costume is for you. Make it how you want. To quote the great Hilary Duff “Why Not?” Also, go listen to that song if you need encouragement. 

9) Enjoy The Whole Process.

Maybe it is redundant at this point but seriously. Have fun. Not just at the con, party, photoshoot, meetup etc. Have a wig styling party. You finished that jacket? Nice, wear it out shopping and be proud. Make a playlist for each character you work on or general motivational music. 8-tracks.com is great for this too. Test those seams/that hairgel/ those shoes/ flexibility by putting on your jam and dancing around. Send snapchats to your friends when you test your make up. Skype your aunt to show off that circle skirt. Put your hat on your dog. 

10) Procrastination isn’t Great.

Probably don’t put off making your costume by making a list of tips for other people.

I’m on board forgiving Oscar Balderrama for just about everything because of 3x20 but then I check the list. These two writers like to spring characters on either from other shows (Constantine, Human Target) or from Arrow (Roy, Sara, Noah).

There is a full Olicity episode while in the rest Olicity is reduced to moments.

There’s also the episode of the Wedding planning and the kidnaping of William.

So this all pretty much fits what I’m envisioning for this Episode: BS is getting into the show; Felicity is organizing Oliver’s birthday party; Oliver will finally find out Chase has William.

Billy Joel song 

“Close to the Borderline”

Blackout, heatwave, .44 caliber homicide
The buns drop dead and dogs go mad
In packs on the West Side
Young girl standing on a ledge looks like another suicide
She wants to hit those bricks
‘Cause the news at six gotta stick to a deadline
While the millionaires hide in Beekman Place
The bag ladies throw their bones in my face
I get attacked by a kid with stereo sound
I don’t want to hear it but he won’t turn it down
Life is tough but it’s just enough
To hold back the tears until it’s closing time
I survived, I’m still alive
But I’m getting close to the borderline
Close to the borderline

A buck three eighty
Won’t buy you much lately on the street these days
And when you can get gas
You know you can’t drive fast anymore on the parkways
Rich man, poor man, either way American
Shoved into the lost and found
The no nuke yell we’re gonna all go to hell
With the next big meltdown
I got remote control and a color T.V.
I don’t change channels so they must change me
I got real close friends that will get me high
They don’t know how to talk and they ain’t gonna try
I shouldn’t bitch, I shouldn’t cry
I’d start a revolution but I don’t have time
I don’t know why I’m still a nice guy
But I’m getting close to the borderline
Close to the borderline

I thought I’d sacrifice so many things
I thought I’d throw them all away
I didn’t think I needed anything
But you can’t afford to squander what you’re not prepared to pay

I need a doctor for my pressure pills
I need a lawyer for my medical bills
I need a banker to finance my home
I need security to back my loan
It isn’t new what I’m going through
But everybody knows you got to break sometime
Another night I fought the good fight
But I’m getting closer to the borderline
Closer to the borderline

Bruce Springsteen song

Missing by Bruce Springsteen

Woke up this morning, was a chill in the air
Went into the kitchen, your cigarettes were lying there
Your jacket hung on the chair where you left it last night
Everything was in place, everything was all right
But you were missing
Missing…

Last night I dreamed the sky went black
You were drifting down and you couldn’t get back
You were lost and in trouble so far from home
I reached for you, my arms went to stone
I woke and you were missing
Missing…

I searched for something to explain
In the whispering rain, the trembling leaves
Tell me baby where did you go
You were here just a moment ago

There’s nights I still hear your footsteps fall
Your key in the door, your voice in the hall
Your smell drifts through our bedroom
I wake, but I don’t move

Behind the screen pics

What we expect / hope

It’s Oliver’s birthday and two persons have special plans for him. Felicity and Chase.

Felicity planned a Surprise birthday party for him at the loft. But Oliver’s fighter mode is allways on alert and

Poor Curtis. 

The stills show Oliver happier than I ever seen him (on current timeline) this Season and a ravishing Felicity

I could just stay here watching these two for at least half an episode…

but Chase has other plans. The episode is called Missing and, even if the synopsis is really unhelpful, from the promo we can see Chase’s friend’s are taking Oliver’s friend’s:

Curtis

Dinah

Felicity and Diggle

I can be wrong but that woman in LoA like attire looks like Talia. I know Lexi is not listed on the Cast for the episode at IMDB but it wouldn’t be the first time people aren’t listed and show up.

Quentin Lance

Originally posted by fuckyeahquentinlance

Poor Quentin, is in for another daugther shock when BS pretending to be LL shows up at his home. And he’s taken. Chained and locked inside a shipping container.

Thea Queen

We know Thea is taken, from the stills. Shes locked with Quentin inside the same Shipping container. Who get’s to her? Maybe BS, or maybe Malcolm. It really depends on which side Malcolm is. If it’s Prometheus’s side then he could be the one taking Thea.

William

Oliver will confront Chase about all this. Chase’s friends have not only taken Oliver’s friends but they also have orders to kill them all.

I can only imagine how Oliver is going to feel. Desperate, willing to do whatever to get them back. Exactly like in the song

It isn’t new what I’m going through
But everybody knows you got to break sometime
Another night I fought the good fight
But I’m getting closer to the borderline
Closer to the borderline

Oliver will be “Close to the borderline”. 

But Chase has something else up his sleeve.

I’m almost sure this video call will about William.

Oliver will be a wreck but also unstoppable. And even if ARGUS agents look to be blocking Oliver’s path, I think that that still is from before Oliver get’s to Chase. After all their friends are taken I don’t think Lyla will stop Oliver, Diggle is in danger, probably the opposite will happen.


This will set up the finale perfectly. By the end of the episode we will have the opposite situation of what we had on the pilot. Oliver will be alone in Starling City; his family and friends will be at Lian Yu.

This is going to hurt so bad

Originally posted by vodkapoetry

Meanwhile in Flashbacks. Anatoly is arranging the boat to get Oliver out of the Island but Oliver is in serious risk of missing it. Kovar is torturing him.

I’m all for shirtless Oliver but the torture thing kind of ruins my buzz. Oliver had enough torture this Season already, Kovar want revenge. I get it. But I’m guessing something else is going on on that Island that has Kovar interested in being there.

Nevertheless the delaying of Oliver’s arrival to light the bonfire is mute because we know he get’s there. We know he gets there in time. The only question now is if Oliver kills Kovar or not.

Personaly I would love to know Dolph can pop up anytime but some how I doubt he’s still alive in present time.

This will set up the Pilot perfectly and with a kudos to the writers I’m pretty sure that knowing how things are going to end is not going to help us any. It’s going to be painful just the same.

Friends to lovers!au: Johnny

Masterlist

• slight mention of drinking

• okay I’m on mobile so please forgive the typing quality, I just had to get this out my head because it’s been haunting me FOREVER

• edit: this turned out so long I’m SORRY

• I saw that old smrookies pic of Johnny visiting Chicago so it stirred something in me 

• Let’s goooooo

• So you met Johnny when you moved to the house next to his when you were both 15

• As in smack dab in the middle of the awkward phase

• we’ve all seen the debut pictures okay

• you didn’t really talk to him at first because…well like you were a little intimidated by him

• but soon his mom (bless her, her radio message was the cutest thing ever) finds out there’s someone his age and makes him introduce himself

• you can hear him go “but mooooom” because it’s a little awkward to just go around knocking on people’s doors - but he’s a sweet friendly guy and definitely can’t say no to his mom so he goes after the obligatory little tiff

• it’s a little awks at first because you open the door and there’s this kid with a basket of fruit who you’d only exchanged polite smiles with before stood outside your front door

• but he’s so friendly you can’t exactly turn him away so you invite him in and you both kind of sit in your living room

• long story short after a brief period of awkwardness you start bonding over music and your well meaning mothers

• and before you know it you’re both walking to the bus stop together and offering each other rides when your parents are driving you places and just laughing a lot

• you go to parties together and go to each others houses after school to study and do all those typical teenager things (you know what I’m talking about, that pic of Johnny holding like a bottle of Malibu in someone’s basement still makes me laugh because relatable)

• and you’re excited to have a whole summer of the same but he’s already started training in Korea

• that’s when you realise that he’s gonna move away to another continent some day and it just hits you really hard because you know you’re gonna miss him when he does

• “wait a minute….am I starting to get a crush on Johnnyboy?” - you

• but you repress the shit outta that because hey you’re just a freshman and got other things to worry about

• so you just focus on having fun with your friends but when Johnny comes back you hug him just a little bit tighter than usual

• flash forward to senior year

• aka Johnny’s last year in Chicago and the last year before you go to uni

• you guys have still maintained that light-hearted friendship, but you also know each others less light hearted thoughts, like the little heartaches that come with growing up

• you want to go to prom with him but you’re a little scared to ask

• and secretly johnny wants to as well because surprise he’s started developing a little crush ever since you two had gone for milkshakes and he wiped some cream off your cheek and he’s like…..wait a minute your skin is really soft and your eyes are really pretty when you’re smiling and whaTS HAPPENING

• but he’s too scared to ask and before you know it Brad from physics has already asked you and thinking Johnny wasn’t going to ask you said yes

• so you both go with different people but you still take pics with each other and promise to find each other on the dance floor and dance off to hips don’t lie

• in fact in those photos you look more like dates than your actual dates and your friends are like…interesting

• and you get a little too drunk that night and Johnny sees you after prom and is like “oh hey let’s chill a little before we go back” but you see him and you remember everyone’s gonna be leaving and Johnnys gonna be 8000 miles away

• so you kinda just burst into tears and Johnny is like “!!!! O shit what’s wrong”

• but the next morning you pretend nothing happened and Johnny is concerned but respects you not wanting to talk

• his heart hurts a little that he can’t help you though and your heart hurts a lot because those little thoughts from freshman year? Had become a full blown crush and you know its a little hopeless

• so his last night in Chicago you come round to his house with a basket of fruit and you both laugh at the memory of those two fifteen year old dorks

• but in the moments of silence you’re both trying to sneak glances of each other while you think the others not looking

• Johnny doesn’t admit he cries just before leaving for the airport but you see his red eyes and just give him the longest hug

• ANYWAY flash forward another few years

• you’ve kept in contact ofc but it’s not really the same so you drift a little

• you’re both loyal though so you make sure to Skype every few weeks and you tell each other about life as a trainee and at uni, and you still tell each other about the good times and the bad times

• and your hopeless crush dims a little bit and so does Johnny’s but there’s kind of that “what if” thing going on, like sometimes after you hang up the call Johnnys like what if I’d asked her out? Would we be skyping as boyfriend and girlfriend? But he shakes the thoughts off because he’s still a trainee and besides he can’t ask you to move across the world for him and he can’t do the same for you so he lets it be

• and then!! When you graduate you get a lucrative job offer in Seoul thanks to your professors recommendation and you’re like holy shit the millenial dream

• and then you remember you don’t even speak the language and the thought terrified you until you remember that Johnny moved halfway across the world to pursue his dream and if he can do it so can you

• you swallow your fears and start taking language lessons and you phone up your parents who are like…my baby is leaving us

• and Johnny is so so happy he starts going off about his favourite restaurants and cafes and shops and offers to help you with Korean, and if he’s being honest he’s also constructing these little fantasies where you two are something special but those are kept to himself

• and when you move he’s there to pick​ you up at the airport but he’s wearing the most obvious incognito clothes ever (because yknow, idols and dating rumours) that even though you’re tired and a little apprehensive you burst into laughter at this 6 foot 1 man trying to blend into the crowd with all black clothing, a black mask and a cap pulled all the way down to his nose

• and he waits until you’re in the taxi to tackle you into a massive bear hug and you’re both so caught up in the moment you forget everything for a minute

• “ummm…so where are you headed” - taxi driver

• and its like old times! And by like old times I mean every time you see Johnny your heart does that inconvenient skipping a beat thing and you don’t know it but Johnny is secretly thinking that you look even more beautiful than you did in high school and sometimes he wonders what would happen if he kissed you goodbye instead of hugging you

• and you’re both doing this awkward no feelings dance

• until….yuta is Tired of Johnny acting like a lovesick fool for hours (then denying it) after you two have met up and forces/encourages him to confess

• and johnnys like wtf no way we’re just friends - but he’s secretly scared that you don’t feel the same way and he could be ruining a friendship 5+ years in the making

• yuta is a straightforward guy and couldve done an elaborate plan to force a him to confess but chooses to rat johnny out to you

• and you’re sat there for a good 10 minutes speechless because you’re so happy but you know Johnny and you know you’ve gotta make the first move if you don’t want to stretch it out for another 5 years

• so you prep a little speech and ask him to come over to yours for a movie marathon

• and when you’re both sat down on your couch you’re suddenly hyperaware of everything and instead of giving that heartfelt confession you just blurt out “you know, I’ve had a crush on you for a really long time”

• cue JPEG Johnny as he processes the information

• and you’re blushing like mad because what if yuta was wrong oh god what were you thinking but then you feel his hand cupping your cheek and see him lean in for a kiss

• but he’s going too slow so you lean forward to close the distance first and its so soft and innocent but not for too long 👀👀👀👀

• afterwards you’re like holy shit okay that just happened

• and Johnnys pressing his forehead to yours and in his minds eye hes finally letting himself imagine a future with you and hes on cloud nine

• yutas plan backfired because instead of Johnny acting like a lovesick fool after seeing you, BOTH of you are acting like lovesick fools in the dorms and he’s about to rip his hair out (but secretly he’s really happy for the sappy couple)

• and Johnnys mom is also over the moon and calls you both to congratulate you and take credit for beginning the relationship (“moooOOOOOM!!!” - Johnny seo)

As you walked off stage, you heard a familiar voice call out from behind you.

“Yo, Y/N, wait up!”

You paused and turned around to see your best friend jogging to catch up to you.

“What do you want?” You raised an eyebrow at him.

“What, I can’t talk to my favorite girl after a show?” Daveed asked with a grin.

“Not when she wants to change out of her costume.” You said, turning to walk to your dressing room, knowing that he’d follow.

Happy to present you my Wakfu fan-characters (I finally made those refs, YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY)
And here comes their story!
Everything starts with Ethan d`Otberg, the xelor (yup, no bandages. I can`t make the poor guy wear them, do you know how uncomfortable bandages are? So I decided that I`ld rather give him some more casual Frigost clothing. And of course he has a mask, but for the refs, I wanted to show his face). He is a pretty untypical for a xelor, as he is a very kind and pacifistic person. He deeply believes in god Xelor and he isssss kinda a self-proclaimed monk, vowed to live his life in peace and righteousness. He is also very politically correct and does not tolerate offencive racistic expressions (such as “dumb like an iop” and etc). But he will never let himself just to say “you are wrong, you must change your mind”, he will explain what is wrong with your words firstly, then will leave you to think on them.
So, Ethan was meditating when he got a vision. this is where their story touches the canon. But don`t worry, they will do nothing important, I am not going to make them meet canonical characters and etc. So. He got the vision with Sadida kingdom, attacked by the unknown mechanism. Ethan takes it serious as he believes that this was the god Xelor his own, who gave him that seeing. He decides that this is his mission to prevent the king of sadida. But he knows that nobody will believe him if he`ll say that he is going to leave Frigost and make a long journey to Sadida kingdom just because he had a dream. So he says, that he is leaving to Bonta to find a master who will help him to learn his magic better instead. But his guardian won`t let hom go all alone, so he hires a bodyguard for him. And this is the other character from the first pic.
Surya Nayrin, the huppermage, is fearless and strong, rational and serious, she is known as a true heroine. However by those who have monies to pay for her help… Surya is used to work in one way: she gets the task, she does her work and she earns. And she likes to controll the situation - she`s inventing the plan how to complete her mission in the fastest way, she follows it and she succeeds. That what her live is like - always in a hurry, always busy, newer distracting to help those why can`t pay. Or at least it WAS so, before she was hired to lead Ethan to Bonta. The problem was that she was always in a hurry, while Ethan, even knowing the importance of this journey, couldn`t resist to stop for helping other people and just to enjoy the beauty of the world around. That was annoying Surya at the beginning, but then they started speaking to each other and soon she started understanding his position. they both learned something from their journey - Surya understood that the life is much more excitong if you can let yourself to stop for a while and look around, whiile Ethan got it that sometimes you need to concentrate on what is the most important now, as you can`t help everyone around. These two later fall in love but never tell that to each other untill the end of their adventure. they were just wandering in the perfect harmony, learning from each other. However, before they`ve met another team of the adventurers…
This is the time from another line. When Surya and Ethan are from the higher society, the other two are village teens trying to write their own history.
The first one is an iop called Eyrikh Raud. You know what an iop should be like? A dumb but unbelievably strong hot-head always in the first line in the battle. Well, that`s Eyrikh! …. …. …. Deep inside his dreams. In real life, Eyrikh is a disaster. He is pretty weak (this is visible that he is too skinny for a string person) and unconfident. He lives in a village that often has fights with the neighbor one. His mother Frida (last pic) is a member of the village`s guard, and Eyrikh always wants to engage into fights like she does. But unlucky for him, he has no physical strength, nor any good weapon, so he`s just breaks into the battlefield and instead of helping, he`s causing troubles as the guard has to distract from the battle to protect him. After that, he always gets teachings from the chief of the guard, who makes menaces that if that will repeat, he will just banish Eyrikh from the village. His mother protects him and takes home, then explains gently that he shouldn`t try to prove his strength this way. He then says that he wants to leave the village to go into the journey and become a hero like his father Gunnard (last pic), and he didn`t succeed in fight only because he had no appropriate weapon/these enemies were too weak so he couldn`t fight in whole power. What is interesting about him - he UNDERSTANDS that this is not true. He KNOWS his limits, he KNOWS that he is too weak for an iop and he will not succeed even with the cool weapons. But he makes himself to believe in him. Because if he would just admit that he is useless, he would have no moral strength to do anything in his life. So even knowing he is a failure, Eyrikh is making himself to believe in his powers and tries over and over.
So, this repeated over and over… Untill one day, to give him a lesson, his mother told him that his father died because he was used to get into any fight like Eyrikh does. She said that the last time he was seen protesting an ancient Osamodas temple. That had to convince Eyrikh to stop his attempts to “help“ the guard. But instead, gave him an idea what to do. He ran away from home to find the temple, because there was chance that his father`s shushu called Veggard would still remain there.
In the morning, his mom found a childish painting with his son on it, holding his father`s sword. She got the message and left the village too, to find her son before he got in any trouble. She will follow him thoughout his whole journey with his drawing, asking “Have you seen my son? He`s like this, with red hair and in black-white clothing with red crosses”. Which fits half of all the iops…
So, Eyrikh reached the ruins, but they were protected by the guardian animals. Running away from them, Eyrikh hid inside the cleavage between the big rocks and was sitting there, speaking to himself about what a total failure he is. And then, he heard a voice, which belonged to Veggard. He was still here, waiting for someone to find him, and as Veggard is a pretty sly shushu, more concerned on ruining people`s lives, instead of their planet, he decided to help Eyrikh for the long time, earn his trust and pretend to be his friend, to later betray him in the most responsible moment. So, he convinced Eyrikh that they must unite so using Veggard`s forces, Eyrikh could fight those guard animals and get out of this place. Of course even an iop would feel something wrong about a shushu asking you to use his powers. But he told that he respected Gunnard SO much, that he will never betray is son. And well, foolish young Eyrikh agreed. Veggard didn`t lie this time - he helped an iop to fight his enemies, then gave him his body back, as promissed. Annnd here comes the other character from pic.2 and the second one from the pic.4
Dinem and Vestre Ylan were the owners of those animals, and the protectors of the ruins. So, when they`ve found Eyrikh staying near their unconscious pets, they attacked immediately. the sisters defeated him, tied and brought to their home to decide what to do with this stranger. He explained that he was only looking for his father`s sword and never meant to hurt the animals, but they`ve attacked him so he had to protect himself. He also lied about being the knight of the order of the guardians of shushu, but the sisters were no fools, so they got it that he`s not a hero he tells he is. Vestre, as the strict, serious and disciplined sister proposed to take the sword from him and tell him to go away. But Dinem was charmed with his inspiring words about willing to leave his village to wander around the planet and become the true hero. Because she felt the same. She wanted to see the world and be more than her father told her to be. So in the night, they both escaped and headed to Binta, as Dinem is a great Gobbawl fan, but she never had a chance to leave the ruins to see the game before. And on their way, they`ve met Ethan and Surya. Eyrikh presented himself as a knight of the order of the guardians of shushu and Dinem confirmed this, as she wanted to help him on his way of becoming whi he wants to be. Ethan knew that Surya only has to lead him to Bonta, then her job will be done, but he really should better have another bodyguards after taht. So he asked the knight and the summoner to join him.
So, about Dinem. She`s a good and reliable friend, never giving a shit about any problems, always relaxed and confident. She has a sense of humor and may be REALLY LOUD when it comes to gobbawl games, but she also has not the best side. She has a big lack of manners - she may put her legs on the table, or eat with hands or barf loudly. She`s pretty gross i mean. And she also always says what is on her mind. Sometimes it`s good, but most of times her words may be really offencive as she often tells racist jokes. and she don`t even understands that. However Ethan is trying to explain her why is it bad to behave like that. 
All together they reached Bonta where Surya had to say Ethan goodbye. But instead, she decided to follow him to the end.
Now about the characters from the pic.3
Mirelle de Lis is a very shy eniripsa, living in the forests around Sadida kingdom along with her girlfriend Koda Kei the feca. Mirelle is a doctor not by her race, but by her morals: she dedicates her life to saving whoever she will find injured in the forest. No matter who you are - a hero or i villain, she will take care of you. You must be pretty brave to take an unknown person to your house and let her stay there till she will fully recover, but Mirelle thinks that she is a coward just because she would never get into a fight. She is also a soft person, she can`t stay on her`s own, and she speaks a little with anyone except Koda.
Koda on the contrary is a very confident person, who can defend herself and Mirelle to. She is rational and smart, never underestimates her enemies and always thinking on the strategy before engaging into the fight. As a true feca, she`s a protector, and she always tries to help Mirelle in whatever she does. She is also a well-educated alchemist and knows mechanics.
And there are also side characters left. The one I hadn`t told about yet is an iopette Astrid Sjorgen from pic.4 and her shushu Ax (taht was predictable). there`s no much info on her - Astrid is not a real knight same as Eyrikh. She just stole a shushu she fell in love with, and trying to find him a body so they can be together. Even Ax himself isn`t so concerned on getting him a new body…
Astrid is a canonical iop - she`s strong but not too clever. But at least she is a bit sly.
Ax is… well, a very untypical shushu. A weak and cowardly one, so he feels better living as Astrids axe, than as a normal shushu. 
And well, will finish retelling their story quickly?
Right before the team approached to the Sadida kingdom, they were attacked by the rogues. Everething was going well untill Veggard proposed Eyrikh to use his powers again, and he agreed with no doubts. But this time Veggard posessed him and attacked his friends. Ethan used all his powers to stop him. So the whole team left unconscious in the forest. They were later found by Koda and Mirelle and brought to their home, where mirelle healed them. After they woke up, Surya told that she had suspicions that Eyrikh is not a real knight and he shouldn`t be trusted with such a powerful weapon. Before this situation, Surya almost accepted him and Dinem as the part of the team, but after the incident, she strictly prohibited Eyrikh to follow her and Ethan any further, even if Ethan himself wanted to give him a second chance. But they had no time - they ahd to prevent the king, so they left Eyrikh and Dinem at Mirelle and Koda`s home.
Should I say how frustrated Eyrikh was? He always knew that he is a failure, and now he ruined all his friends` expectations, as he trusted a shushu, who he believed to be his best friend, injured his teammates, and now there`s only Dinem left on his side. He gave Veggard to her and asked to bring him back where he lied, when she`ll return home, and told that he is heading back home. But she didn`t want to go back, she loved the adventure so much, so she inspired him telling how exciting that was and that if she fulfilled her dream, he should do it to. So they decided to head to the kingdom and to help with whatever they can. They also asked Mirelle and Koda to come woth them, and after a conversation, they agreed. And well… No coolstories about my characters doing anything epic. Ethan and Surya couldn`t prevent the king as they were not allowed to meet him. So when the attack begun, they just joined the sadida warriors in the fight for their kingdom, and also met the other part of the team. Eyrikh`s mother also came in time, and used Veggard instead of her son, as she has a stronger will, so she won`t let him possess her body. And well, that`s it. Just a bunch of characters helping to protect the Sadida kingdom with whatever they can. Hope this is an OK way to tie their story with the canon and none will be against it?

As soon as you sit down the businessmen introduced themselves as the managers of Twenty One Pilots. Next, they went ahead and make an announcement explaining why they wanted to talk to you all in first place. The exciting news is that your band is going to join Tyler and Josh on their world tour in North America. First you were all surprised by the fact that they‘ve even heard of your music and your reaction immediately escalated  as the manager confessed that the guys specifically want your band to be their opening act. Without even thinking about that decision you instantly agreed to the opportunity.

Life of the Zodiacs #2

Didn’t Get a Chance to Read Part One? Go Read it Here :)


“What do you mean the wait is forty minutes?!“ Aries screeched at the frightened waiter facing opposite of her.

He gulped and nervously tapped his fingers against the podium in front of him, "W-Well, we’re very busy tonight ma'am, and your group is just so large we don’t have the room for all of you at the moment.”

“Let’s just go Aries,” Taurus leaned against Libra. “I’m hungry and we obviously aren’t going to be able to eat here. Let’s just go somewhere else.”

“Fine,” Aries glared at the waiter one last time before storming out of the restaurant.

Cancer sighed, “Where are we going to eat now? That was the only place left with decent food.”

Everyone stood in silence. They had already visited multiple restaurants that night, but to no avail. Everywhere was either full or the wait time was too long. Capricorn had been so busy that day he hadn’t had the time to make a reservation anywhere, something he was cursing himself for.

Aries’ face lit up, “How about-”

She was cut off by an unanimous “No” by everyone else. Despite what her fit figure would suggest, the only places Aries ate at were fast food restaurants.

Friends to lovers!au: Taeyong

Masterlist

• taeyong is my last first love in nct don’t let that Johnny fic tell you differently

• i just…had a lot of feelings at that moment okay sorry TY

• let’s go before reality hits me and this sugar rush wears off

• you two met at an out of the way 24 hour cafe

• the owner knows him from way back when so he lets taeyong just chill and also lets him add 5 sugars to his coffee without judging so he really appreciates this place

• and recently he likes sitting at one of the tables after practise and writing lyrics at a godawful time of night while staring out the window

• and you like this cafe because you can come whenever you need a caffeine fix and its a change of scene from the wall in front of your desk

• on one night you come in, with 2 bags stuffed with books and a laptop and a glazed over look in your eyes because you procrastinated for three weeks and now it’s coming to bite you in the ass because you have 3473728 things due

• so you legit order 3 espressos and add in as much sugar as humanly possible

• meanwhile taeyong is just sat there surprised and a little concerned because a) it’s 1am so he didn’t expect there to be anyone else other than night workers dropping in for a takeaway cup and b) he’s wondering if you’re planning on not sleeping for the rest of the week

• two hours later you slam your laptop shut since the caffeine backfired and the words were blurring on the screen because your heart rate was going at the speed of light

• you hear a little “oof” and look over to see you’d startled taeyong awake (because he’d fallen asleep on his notebook the nerd)

• and you’re like “ahhh I’m so sorry I didnt -” but you have to stop to compose yourself because this boy has the most intense eyes you’ve ever seen and you’re like…“m-mean…to…what?”

• but of course taeyong is a sweetheart and reassures you it’s okay so you smile in relief and wave bye at him when you leave

• 2 weeks later you’re still neck deep in deadlines and still making midnight trips to the cafe but somehow you and taeyong are now sharing tables

• neither of you know how but you’re not complaining lol he has an oddly reassuring presence for someone you’ve only recently met

• you guys like to share earphones and listen to what you call the “go hard or go home” playlist

• both of you encourage each other, like when he can’t figure out a rhyme or when you can’t get an argument right

• and at times you just like to take a break and sit and talk about anything and everything

• or even just sit in silence, enjoying each others company

• and one night you slam your books down and you’re cheering because you’ve FINALLY finished

• and taeyong’s cheering you on too • you stop and give him a massive hug out of the blue and if your face wasn’t in his shoulder you would’ve seen him go tomato red

• anyway he says…“now that you’re done, does this mean you’re not coming back anymore?” and he gives you his trademark puppy dog eyes

• you’re like “ofc I am!!! Well maybe not at 12am but we’re definitely gonna meet up, we’ve been through some things man”

• and taeyongs laughing because you look so serious like you’re giving a victory speech in a movie but your hair is all frazzled and you’re in an old hoodie and before you know it you’re both laughing again and wiping away tears

• “okay, okay” and you swap numbers for the first time (because previously it was an unwritten agreement that both of you would be at the same place at the same time every night)

• taeyong leaves first, but not before he makes you promise to lay off caffeine for a while because you must have drank enough to keep you going for a lifetime

• you’re looking at him go and it hits you that the eyes you found so intense that first night also had the softest look in them

• is your heart beating faster? you tell yourself it’s that 4th espresso and mentally make a note to take taeyong’s advice

• flash forward to a few months later

• and you and taeyong have kept that promise to still be friends

• you guys like to go explore the side streets in Seoul, and you have an album full of ridiculous pictures you’ve taken of each other - you’re constantly buying new film for his Polaroid because of both of you keep doing dorky “modeling” poses (taeyong voice: everything I touch is a pose)

• he still hasn’t forgiven you for the time you snapped a pic of him practising winking, because somehow yuta got his hands on it and now it’s in the dorm, framed and everything

• street food!!

• “can I have a bite?” turns into “oops sorry, I’ll buy you another one” (shout out to my boys Johnjae for exposing taeyong’s snack stealing habits)

• sometimes you go back to that cafe and those are the nights you see the vulnerable sides of each other, and it’s just so comfortable

• it’s a beautiful friendship except for one small detail

• because now you know it definitely wasn’t the caffeine that night, and you’re mortified but you don’t want to stop being friends with him over a crush

• BUT little do you know that taeyong is starting to imagine your face when he’s writing songs in that cafe and he’s like…what is this

• the rest of NCT is kind of suspicious because “um hyung your songs are getting kinda sappy” - doyoung

• by the third song he’s fully accepted his fate, but something inside holds him back because he’s still a tiny bit insecure - for all his cold looks he’s still someone who wants to be loved and who treasures the people he loves, and he doesn’t think he could take it if you rejected him and he’d ruined your relationship

• on the other angsty side you still can’t admit to yourself you like him because he’s an idol? With so many fans and the responsibility that comes with it? There’s no way he’d like you and you don’t want to seem delusional

• but your friends like to tease you about it because they’re like sureee you’re just friends 👀 make sure to invite me to the wedding…and you don’t know if you’re being paranoid but you swear sometimes even the owner of the cafe gives you this Look whenever you’re sat together

• it would’ve continued being this flat out denial but by some sort of miracle you’d decided to come in to the cafe at midnight alone “just to get a pick me up”

• definitely not because you were kinda missing taeyong since you hadn’t seen him in a week or so because idol life

• anyway he’s nowhere to be seen and your heart sinks but then you see his notebooks out on the table and you find yourself smiling like crazy

• you assume he’s at the bathroom or something so you order coffees for both of you and settle in to wait

• normally you wouldn’t read his stuff unless he’d specifically show it to you but…you see your name and curiousity gets the better of you

• taeyong comes out and sees you at the table and at first his night gets a lot better because honestly, he’d been missing you too

• he’s about to get your attention but then…oh no…oh no he realises you’re reading his lyrics

• he’s kinda frozen in place because he thinks he’s ruined things and you’re frozen in place because you’re not sure if you’re having one of those wistful dreams that you’ve told no one about

• it seems like an age until you look up, kind of in a daze, and the only thing that snaps you out of it is when you meet taeyong’s gaze

• and for a second it’s like that first night again, because his eyes have that intensity that you can’t seem to get a read on

• in the end he’s the first one to speak, and your heart shatters when an apology comes out of his mouth because you don’t know how to let him know you’ve felt the same way for a long time

• but the words do come out and you can see him visibly light up like the sun

• and before you know it you’re in his arms and you’re both laughing and he’s peppering your cheeks and nose with kisses

• he only hesitates for a moment before placing a gentle kiss on your lips

• you guys were in your own little world for the rest of the night, and you left that cafe at 5am, tired but so so happy

• “finally” - the cafe owner, probably, definitely

• taeyong’s not even annoyed when he finds out Johnny has been collecting bets on when he’d ask you out

• jaehyun: “did you see the other songs he-”

• taeyong: “hey look at that, it’s time tO GO”

• you: “no babe, let’s see what jaehyun has to say”

6 months

2 years. 2 years in a relationship with Nash, just to break up over text message because of the pictures of him and another girl. He was on tour and cheating on you.

You’ll admit, the first week, you laid in bed crying. You were heartbroken. He was your first true love, after pizza of course. But you were so hurt. He said he loved you, but his actions showed otherwise.

In the messages, he said it was an accident. A one time thing. She was just a fan and things just happened. He didn’t mean it. He loved you.

Lie after lie after lie.

The second week you were still upset, but you moved from your bed now. You found yourself mostly playing sad songs and drowning your pain in the bottom of a tub of ice cream. Not the healthiest way to cope, but you were doing okay.

The third week you were finally realizing that he didn’t deserve your tears. You saw his tweets, Instagram pictures, snapchat stories, he was out having the time of his life it seemed. He was out on dates with other girls already. Out partying with the guys. He was happy, so why weren’t you?

The forth week rolled around and you decided you were done. You finally got rid of that box of stuff you had of his under your bed. Your burned the love letters, threw away all the gifts he bought you, like the teddy bear from Valentine’s Day. The minion he won from a carnival game the night he took you on your 4th date. All of it. You were finally ready to move on.

Now, here you are, 6 months post break up, hanging out with your new boyfriend, Beau at his place.

You guys met at the gym (since drowning your sorrows in ice cream did nothing for your figure) a month after your breakup and really clicked. Granted he gave you all his lines that day, it was his sense of humor that made you agree to going out to lunch with him the next day, and well, the rest is history. That was 5 months ago though.

Now here you are, head over heels for the biggest goof you knew. He constantly made you laugh, and his brothers, Luke and Jai, same age as you, were suddenly your best friends. You spent at least 4 days out of the week with Beau, the other 3 you were just busy with work.

You were currently at Beau and the rest of the boys place in LA, cuddled up on his bed watching a movie. You couldn’t deny that you were tired. You were up early this morning for a photoshoot, and you didn’t get home until late last night.

You did some modeling, and you had to admit you did love it. You noticed how 3 months after your break up though, any picture you would post you saw Nash would like it. No big deal, since you did get like 200,000 some likes on a picture, but still.

And he would indirect you on twitter a lot. Or at least he has lately. He’s tweeted ‘don’t ever let go of someone who was once all about you’ and ‘my only regret was hurting you so much it made you leave.’ Of course there were several others, and people always tagged you in the tweets, but you paid no attention.

You were happy with Beau. He made you feel beautiful. Loved. Everything. You loved being around him. You honestly couldn’t even picture being with anyone else now. You wanted nothing more than to just be with Beau. Like, he was your happiness.

That night you didn’t have to work, and you didn’t have anything for the following morning, so as usual you stayed with the boys, a habit that seemed to be starting. You cooked them dinner, which they were grateful for, and then watched them play fifa. Jai and Luke versus Beau and Skip.

Around 11:30 you decided to head to bed, knowing those four would be up for hours. Beau did pause the game though to ‘tuck’ you into bed, which only led to you guys making out for like 15 minutes before Jai screamed from downstairs for Beau to ‘hurry up and finish’ since ‘everyone knows you can’t last that long anyway’

You stayed up though, watching a movie from bed, cuddling with Hamlet. You were watching the lion king, and you couldn’t help but snap a pic of you and Hamlet. I mean, who doesn’t love dogs, cuddles, and the Lion King? You posted the photo on twitter and Instagram and then locked your phone and then focused on the movie.

Nash was on twitter, and was guilty of having your tweet notifications on, along with you Instagram ones as well. He was over at the boys house, and they had just finished a game of hoops, everyone taking a break and checking their phones.

He had a notification of yours from twitter and Instagram. Checking twitter he saw it. The picture you had taken while over at Beaus. He immediately exited out and checked your Instagram post, only to see the same picture. He admits, it was a great pic of you. You looked great, even for it being 11:30 at night.

“another night with the actual love of my life Hamlet” and it had Beau fuckin Brooks tagged in the caption, and the picture itself.

“that’s the third fucking night in a row.” He mumbled, locking his phone. “the third fucking night in a row she’s spent at his house.”

“bro chill, they are dating, it’s not like she’s cheati- never mind.” Johnson spoke, catching himself from saying something terrible.

“like I don’t fucking know that. I know they’re fucking dating. Everyone fucking does. Who doesn’t know about the hottest model dating the Australian prankster. I mean, if you didn’t just go on any fucking site. Twitter, where her fans and his fans and half the other people in the world talk about how perfect they are. How much they ship them. Or even look at their profiles. They do nothing but fucking tweet about one another, tweet one another and fucking post pictures of them together all the damn time.” Nash went off. He was pissed. He didn’t like that you were this happy with someone that wasn’t him.

Because just a few months ago that was you guys. People were shipping you guys. You were tweeting about one another, tweeting pictures of each other, posting all kinds of pictures together, tweeting one another.

“bro, can’t you just be happy for her? I mean, don’t you want her to be happy?” Johnson, the man of wisdom spoke again. Everyone else just kinda put in their own little inputs, but Johnson was the only one to make you realize anything.

“Yeah I want her to be happy. But I want her to be happy with me. I want her to be posting pics of us, not her and someone else.”

“yeah, well you kinda ruined that didn’t you?” Johnson fired back. Everyone was shocked he said it because well, yeah everyone knew Nash cheated, but since it happened no one talked about it. Not that they were scared, but simply that it was just kinda understood. Everyone knew what went down, no need to discuss it

“Johnson.” Nash practically growled. Everyone could tell he was ready to punch Johnson for bringing it up.

“no Nash listen. You fucked up. Big time. You had a fucking dime, and to be honest with you, if it wasn’t for bro code, the second you two broke up I would’ve gone after her. I’m not gonna lie, I still talk to her, hang out with her. She’s great, and she loved you so much. But you fucking took her for granted and lost the best damn thing that ever came your way.” Johnson spit.

“you don’t think I know that? I know I messed up okay.”

“I know, but I still don’t think you get it. Yeah you messed up. You treated her like shit while you were on tour. Empty conversations, hardly ever talking to her. I think there was seriously like 2 weeks when you didn’t even bother to respond to her? But she fucking stuck by you. She way faithful as shit. And then you go and cheat on her? With a fan? You know they can’t keep their damn mouths shut. And after that breakup sure you were feeling great. Free. Nothing could stop you. Nothing was holding you back. Now here we are, 6 months later, she’s moved on, and now’s when you start caring. She’s your ex and all and you should want nothing but the best for her since you couldn’t give it to her.”

“I don’t need this.” Nash said, walking off inside, where he found Nate and Sammy drinking and smoking. He grabbed a bottle of vodka and started drinking, giving up on basketball and now all of the guys essentially just having a small party.

A bottle of vodka, and like half a blunt later Nash was just a mess. He excluded himself from everyone else inside laughing, having the time of their lives. He went outside, sitting on the edge of a cement wall. He scrolled through your guys’ old photos he still had on his phone. His thoughts eating him alive. He couldn’t stand this.

He missed you.

He missed making you laugh, the way your eyes would squint and your nose would scrunch up as you tipped your head back. He could no longer do that to you, he could no longer make you laugh. Now it was Beau who made you laugh. And that hurt him, so much. Your laugh was his favorite sound.

He missed the way you would cuddle up next to him. How you would throw your leg over his body and your arm across his chest and snuggle up real close to him. How you would nuzzle your head in his side. How perfect you and he fit together.

Or the way you would skip through the house, just humming or singing. His shirt draped over your body, and your little knee high socks, and nothing else. It was his favorite sight. He loved nothing more than trudging out of bed in the morning to find you in the kitchen singing. He loved walking up behind you, wrapping his arms around your waist and kissing your neck, telling you how great last night was. He cringed at the thought of Beau and you being the same way.

Then the thought of you and Beau being intimate in anyway. Doing anything sexual. He started to think about all the things you used to love in the bedroom. How you loved when he would pin you up against the wall. How rough he could get, but how he could slow it down, putting all his love into every deep thrust. How you would squirm when he kissed that spot, right below your ear. Or how you loved to suck him off before anything. The foreplay. How much you loved to be on top, or how you loved when he hit it from the back.

Thinking of you and Beau doing any of that together was enough to set him off. He had a new message open to you, he just didn’t have any idea what to say. His thoughts were all jumbled, and the alcohol gave him all the confidence he needed. No matter how sloppy his thoughts were one thing was clear. He missed you, and he wanted to let you know that.

To (y/n): I miss you.

And after he sent it, he waited. Messages still open. Hope of any contact from you started to fade as 15 minutes had passed and you still hadn’t even opened it. His thoughts started to come back, and he thought about how much he missed falling asleep next to you every night, and waking up with you every morning.

He was about to type another message but then he saw the little bubble pop up and eagerly awaited your response.

Beau had just came upstairs into his room to get ready for bed when you got a new message. Rarely ever getting a message at midnight, you were quite curious as to who it would be. The only person you ever talked to this late was either your best friend, or Beau. And since your best friend was out of state, in a different time zone for the week, you knew it wasn’t her, plus you guys only talked late when it was an emergency. And considering you were with Beau, it couldn’t be him.

“who’s that?” Beau asked, emerging from the bathroom in his boxers, a sight you quite enjoyed.

“no idea.” You replied, reaching over to the night table and checking your phone.

You unlocked your phone, only to see something you did not expect at all. A new message from the last person on earth you expected.

“it’s uh, it’s from Nash.” You said, shocked.

Beau climbed into bed, pulling you into him so you guys were spooning.

“like your ex Nash? What did he say?”

“yeah him. And he just said he missed me. I’m not even going to reply. I’m just going to go change my number in the morning.” I said, clicking out of my messages.

“no don’t. I know it’s not ideal, but I mean, you should text him back. You know, give him some closure or something.” Beau smiled.

“you’re not mad?”

“why would I be? I mean, I’ve got you now. Even though he fucked up, he still deserves some closure. Thing about it babe, this is the first you guys have talked in like 6 months.”

“okay. You’re the best. I love you.” You smiled, turning and kissing his lips lazily.

To Nash: It’s been 6 months Nash. I think you’re fine.

From Nash: I’m not fine. These past 6 months hae been hell. I miss you so muvh babt.

“he’s drunk.” You told Beau.

“drunk or not, he still has feeling babe. Just, let him say what he has to say. I know this is what you’ve wanted for months now.”

“what have I wanted?” you asked, confused. You didn’t want anything from Nash. You loved Beau now, so you were confused.

“you want answers, and now’s your chance to get some.”

To Nash: well, that’s not really my problem.

From Nash: I knoww. I mesaed up

To Nash: can I ask you something.

From Nash: of course.

To Nash: okay, firstly. Why’d you do it? Were you not happy with me? Cause if not, you should have broke up with me before.

From Nash: no. fuck no. I was happy with you. It’s just on tour I felt held back. Like everyone else was out having great times and I just felt like I couldn’t cause of yoi.

To Nash: you could have just talked to me, instead of ignoring me and then cheating on me.

From Nash: I know. Can I ask  you something.

To Nash: sure.

From Nash: are you happy? With bo ? nd evrithing else in oyur life?

To Nash: Beau* but yeah. I am happy with him. And my modeling is really taking off.

From Nash: I’m glad your work iz good. Bo is lucki

To Nash: Beau*

From Nash: right. I’m sorry.

To Nash: it’s fine. Lots of people spell it wrong.

From Nash: no. not for the name. For everything else. For the lies, and cheating. I regret it all. I still care about you, but if you’re happi then I’m happi for you.

To Nash: why?

From Nash: I already told you. I felt held back.

To Nash: no, not that. Like why now? Why are you apologizing now? 6 months later? I wanted an apology like a week after, maybe a month, but 6 months later? I thought maybe we could be statistics, remain friends after the breakup, but 6 months later?

From Nash: it’s just. I wanted to be friends. I just needed to figure things out.

To Nash: by sleeping with other girls?

From Nash: that makes it sound bad.

To Nash: cause it was bad Nash. It hurt so much knowing while I was laying around hurting, you were out, happy as can be.

From Nash: funny.

To Nash: what’s funny about that?

From Nash: no, not that, it’s just funny how things change.

To Nash: what do you mean?

From Nash: it’s funny how now, I’m the one hurting, and you’re happy as can be.

To Nash: what?

From Nash: It hurts knowing you’re falling asleep in someone else’s arms, and waking up next to them every morning now…

There she goes

A/N: Y/T/N = Your Twitter Name; this skips around in time a little but it shouldn’t be too confusing. If you want to be tagged for the final part, just send me an ask. @fragmentofmymind here you go… part two.

ask box || masterlist

You returned to consciousness as if through seaweed-clustered waters. Each step was slow and laborious and threatened to make you fall back into sleep. When you did open your eyes, it was to find yourself cradled in a warm embrace and definitely not lying in your bed.

Lin, you realised and, careful not to wake him, turned your head to look at him. You must have fallen asleep watching the West Wing the night before and, somehow, got tangled up while you slept. Lin was asleep with his mouth open a little and his arms around you. He looked a little less troubled in sleep.

As gently as you could, you slipped out of his arms and got up off the couch. You figured running for it would make the next few days of rehearsal awkward, so you headed into the kitchen and started to make some coffee. You concentrated on finding mugs and figuring out how to work the machine- anything but how much you had liked waking up in Lin’s arms.

“Y/N?” Lin’s voice, still groggy with sleep, interrupted the whir of the machine. You poked your head through the doorway and smiled at him. He was still on the couch, hair ruffled and jumper rucked up a little.

“I’m here,” you said, “and I made coffee.”

He grinned. “You’re the best.”

“I know.” You passed him his coffee, watching him cradle it and sway a little. “We should go soon- it’s nearly eight.”

Lin gave you a plaintive look. “I want to sleep,” he complained, and you laughed.

“You can sleep on me during the lunch break,” you promised, and he got up.

can i ask why u don't like her? i don't either but i wondered why u don't

I don’t like her for a lot of reasons but my biggest annoyance with her is the fact that she’s made to be this perfect person with no flaws and she feeds into it. Have you seen her instagram? It’s basically a photographers wet dream.You want to share photos of your kids, your bees, your flowers and whatever else go for it. But do not treat your children like props and please stop being fake. If you take a look at her twitter and her instagram can you find me one single photo that shows some sort of flaw? The kids are always smiling, they’re always poised and they never even have a stain on their shirt. They’re kids and you’re telling me they don’t get dirty? Here are some of my other reasons for disliking her…

Judgmental:

Her twitter is usually pretty tame. She doesn’t post anything that could spark any sort of controversy, she rarely interacts with the fans and she knows when to tweet. By that she knows when Jared is getting attention and she’s just gotta bring it right back to her. Here are some examples x x x x  of her being judgmental or bringing the attention right back to her. Is smoking good? No. Is it good to do it around a child? No. But it’s not your place to judge that person! Who gives a shit how someone lives their life? Jared seemed to be having a great time at SDCC and she just had to point out that it was trending and that she missed him. You’ve never tweeted about SDCC before but now all of a sudden you’ve just gotta point out that it’s trending? Here’s a link to the article she mentioned in the one tweet. Are all Italians in the mob? No. Do all Russians like vodka? No. So please don’t paint all sorority girls with the same brush.

Liar:

She’s been known to be inconsistent with her story but I like to call it her being a liar. Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we? To start the wedding photos, engagement photos and rehearsal dinner photos were all stolen. That’s a little odd because that was a shit ton of photos to be stolen and who could possibly access that many photos without someone alerting Gen or Jared? But wait! A couple years back she approaches the ladies of DLG and tells them how the photos were released with her permission and she chose which photos the photographer could put in her online portfolio. Did she tell the fandom as to stop people from thinking they were stolen? Nope. Set’s up a charity that supports equality but spends 90% of her time with a family that hates same sex marriage. She’s all for girl power but never about this before she had a girl. Now she’s so proud to be a female! It’s like having a girl is what truly made her a mom. Paleyfest rolls around (oh my God, those pictures of Jared kissing her are so bad!) and she tells the interviewer how it’s pilot season and she’s trying hard to book something. Couple months later and she’s pregnant with Tom. Oddly enough Jared told the fandom he wanted to wait to start a family because he wanted to be able to be home with the kids. Later down the road Jared says Gen wants to act but she’s busy with Tom and he’s lucky she’s putting her career on hold like that. Guess what happens? She gets pregnant again! She does a podcast and tells them how she’s just auditioned for the part in a TV show and wanted the fans to tweet said TV show about her getting the part. Then we find out she’s pregnant again! Anyone else seeing a pattern? She tells the DLG ladies that she doesn’t want to do cons, they just aren’t her thing and she doesn’t want to take away from Jared. Really???? Judging by JibCon and Asylum she LOVES being on the stage. She’s an attention seeking bitch. And please, she did not get high. That train story has gotten so fucked up that she actually tells a different variation of it to sound cool and give herself a bigger part in it than she originally had. The reason why she’s never had her own panel is because creation had gotten sick of asking her and her saying no. She’ll dress the boys and dogs up in Seahawks gear because that’s her team but when she goes to a game with Jared she wears HIS team. Logical.

Her Instagram fail:

This one should be obvious but I’ll explain why I cannot stand this woman’s attempt at a lifestyle blog. For one she’s making it seem like all these photos are completely candid and weren’t taken by an actual photographer. She’s using her kids, Jared and the fandom for her own personal gain and I find that to be disgusting. All the photos have the perfect caption and show off just the right thing to get the most amount of likes. She knows damn well the pictures with the kids will get the most likes so she posts them when she’s feeling needy and wants attention.She talks about how a “mylkshake” gets the kids to eat their veggies but doesn’t give them a sugar rush. But just last week she gives the kids ice cream and tells us how the sugar rush is real. I’m all for giving kids sugar but also giving them healthy food as well. She acts like she’s the only parent that does these things. My other favorite post of hers is when she talks about missing me time. At that point she attended her brothers wedding, went to a fashion show with her bestie, went to the zoo, had a couple workout dates with the bestie and also went to the beach with her trainer, bestie, besties beard and a disgusting homophobic pic. Not a lot of moms can do all these things and then have the audacity to complain about not having me time. Tells people how it can take a village to gets kids to eat properly. What in the actual fuck? People need to spend 600$ on a blender for kids to eat their vegetables? Why in the hell are you letting your kids dictate what they eat? Keep putting their vegetables in a blender and covering the taste with fruit and they’ll never eat them. Her friend Nicole owns her own baby food company and Gen just loves this! But Nicole often says not to mix fruits and vegetables so kids can learn to eat right without sugar being present. Here she agrees with a fan on how to avoid picky eaters but with her instagram all she’s doing is insinuating that her boys are difficult eaters. The kids rule that house while dads are in Vancouver. So, yeah. Her instagram is not a lifestyle blog for the average person. It’s a platform for her to show off her perfect life, perfect family and how much better she is than everyone else.

Miscellaneous:

She doesn’t support Jared unless it’s to tweet that she’s proud of him. She didn’t even wear an AKF shirt! She admits that she didn’t do anything to prepare for the role of Ruby even though almost every single actor that comes on that show to be 2.0 or something says how they study the other person. All she did was take a character and ruin her and then complain when people had a problem with her rendition of the acting. It’s over the top or nothing with this girl. She can never just share a simple picture. She’s gotta have the perfect caption and she likes to try and fool people. Posts a picture of Jared and the baby making it sound like she just took the picture moments before hand. When actually it was taken the day they celebrating JJ. I absolutely hate how she spends JARED’S money on complete garbage. This bracelet cost almost 900$ and looks like a child could have made it. Yes, she does come from money but I seriously doubt that her parents are still giving her money to pay for her extravagant lifestyle. I believe she had a trust fund from her grandparents but I doubt that’s still there especially with he way she likes to spend money.

The fandom treats her like she’s made of glass and she’s right there with them because she loves the attention.Being made the victim is right up her alley.

P1-It seems as though Jess is done :-(. Or more done as you seem to be. I'm wondering if you can give your take on this whole mess since you used to both seem so in sync with each other, I'm curious why you're somewhat differently dealing with the latest fall out. I'm on the fence and go back and forth with empathizing SC for being in the middle of this and forced to ruin their image with fans bc Network influence and thinking the both of them really don't care anyway and to hell with the ship.

I only compare you two bc you are both vocal on here with your opinions so i don’t think you’d mind and it’s an easy comparison. Not meant to single you out. But what I’ve thought of the last few days is that this is nothing new. We’ve really expected this. I remember during the LA mess we were already predicting MM would show up in SA and some again predicted it’d be for his bday. In that sense I don’t fully understand why this is the straw that broke the camels back. I get that it’s getting old. Very old/annoying/hurtful/hard to deal with but nothing to completely turn off a fandom for. The only difference here is that Cait posted a pic. I see the whole new set of emotions that brings into it but a few other factors are important to think about. If we thought MM has been a TPTB interference since the beginning which most of us have then SC are really held by the balls here. That’s been a saving grace for Sam every time we’ve gotten over/forgiven drama and hurtful things he’s done. Going back to TPTB-if MM is a manifest to hide SC than Sam and Cait are both involved yet Sam’s been the only scapegoat so far. Cait was bound to get involved some time and it looks like that time came during Sam’s bday. I know it’s arguably on if that’s why she posted it but with how out of character for her it is plus all the other weird things I’m sticking with it being bc BTS. If so people are jumping ship for the first thing she’s done in this mess when we’ve been giving Sam a year of passes. It’s so weird to compare but it sort of seems valid doesn’t it? Now it’s her turn to be the bad guy after Sam spent the last 15 months doing it. If we got through 15 months of Sam in the middle of this mess it seems wrong to jump ship the first time Cait does something. I know this is based on BTS assumptions but given everything we’ve seen in the last 15 it’s the most likely scenario. Idk it’s why I’m on the fence. Have a good night!


I think I’m somewhere between where Jess is and where you are. Jess and I usually see these kinds of things differently. It’s always been that way just based on our personalities etc. You make a lot of good points in your message though and given the last week, I can always appreciate a little logic. For me, at least, it really is just exhaustion and being done with all this bullshit. Ever since the doxxing I’ve felt myself pulling back from the fandom and Sam and Cait. I think it’s more just I’m not as invested anymore so this whole mess just felt like another reason to pull back more and find other things/TV shows etc to watch. I vacillate wildly between viewing everything logically or emotionally so I don’t have a clear viewpoint at the moment. I’ve said it before - the books have never been the main reason I’m here so ever since I started shipping, the show became second for me. So the less I’m invested in Sam and Cait, the less I’m invested in Outlander period. 

Anyway, like I said, you make a lot of really good points and things to keep in mind. I think the fandom will recover but I know a lot of people, myself included, who won’t be sticking around for much longer if this keeps up. 

Game Rec: Kisses and Curses

Yes, that’s right, that game which you’ve no doubt encountered as the annoying, cheesy ad on your mobile dashboard with the cringy tagline of “save the world, and fall in love” or something to that effect. 

Well. I am here to tell you that all the assumptions you’ve made about this game are wrong. 

I’ve gotten really into interactive visual novel games recently, so when I got really bored one day I decided to give it a go. It’s probably about five minutes in that I realise that, cheesy advertising and cringe-inducing (but thankfully skip-able) intro aside, this game is a HIDDEN GEM. 

The girl front and center of the main pic is the hella bisexual protagonist and the other five are the love interest options!

They waste no time making her bisexuality super clear, and if you do the Anastasia storyline it gets discussed in more depth (not sure about the others yet). 

Now, if you’re like me and you’re a thirsty gay/bi/pan, being able to play an interactive story where you can romance anyone out of three guys and two girls is probably enough to catch your attention right away. But there’s so much else going for it. 

Firstly, it’s genuinely hilarious. The main character (who I’ll refer to as MC here since you get to name her) is brilliantly snarky and 120% my ideal kind of protagonist. 

(Screencaps are all borrowed from other Tumblr users who have been posting about the game, the way the game works makes it too difficult for me to go away and get some of my own atm - so they’re not the most ideal caps in some cases but the best I could do)

Basically, the premise is that MC is a (bisexual) witch. 

Witches have Birthrights, different abilities they are born with which is usually passed down through the family. MC’s birthright is a Stargazer: she neutralises the wayward magic in starfalls which is dangerous when left unattended. 

The plot starts up when starfalls become starfloods aka way more tricky to the point of dangerously overwhelming. 

Without giving too much of the plot away, it basically turns out that things are headed in a potentially catastrophic direction for the whole world if you don’t do something about it. You have to pick a witch and a human to travel with you to help you with the spell in question (which is how you narrow down which love interest you’re going to go after). 

There’s a lot more to it than that but that’ll give you enough of an idea.  

Each love interest storyline deviates from the others in some way while still sticking mostly to the central plot (which is pretty damn good, with a nice twist at the end which I only worked out just before the reveal, and frankly it didn’t lose its punch), keeping it interesting for playing through the difference romance options. The romance is surprisingly well written, evoking emotion but also…well, it gets pretty steamy! Like, fairly blatant oral sex implications level of steamy. It’s great. 

An element of gameplay I really like is that the choices you face can be genuinely difficult sometimes and you have no idea what kind of repercussions they might have, just like if it was real life. It was surprisingly immersive in those moments - I was worried!

I’ve only done one of the love interest storylines so far - recently started my second choice - but I heard another player talking about how a choice of theirs accidentally led to a character (who they thought was 100% safe) getting killed off, and nothing like that happened to me but, I now have to wonder if I was ever just one choice away from something like that since there were definitely some close calls! 

Quick love interest breakdown: 

Melanie - witch - black lesbian (I think) with awesome hair who is your best friend and honestly just kind of the best person ever, even if you romance someone else her friendship with MC is adorable bc sapphic besties

Anastasia - human - an intense yet awkward lesbian witch hunter who 100% has a thing for you until she learns you’re a witch, and things get really “starcrossed natural enemies” in the best possible way (hers is the only storyline I’ve finished so far and it’s honestly so beautiful)

Rhys - witch - very proper Welshman with a Birthright that lets him see the future, and is apparently secretly into BDSM (I’ve only just started his storyline, but apparently it’s great because he is the complete opposite of a certain Mr Grey, aka super respectful/devoted etc. I’m mostly just curious as to how explicitly it’ll be shown since they haven’t held back much so far, lol)

Niklas - witch - European gentleman who practices Dark Magic and has a Birthright that basically forces people to do what he says, which I know sounds concerning but I’ve seen comments saying that his storyline is actually really great, which I’ll actually believe based on the rest of the game (I suppose I’ll find out!)

Ty - human - boy next door who is just generally great and chill (I’m romancing Rhys atm but Ty is the human I brought along for the ride and it’s really awesome because even though Ty has a thing for MC, he and Rhys are getting along really well and it’s just nice to not have cliched jealousy between lowkey romantic rivals) 

Gameplay breakdown: 

So basically, you use ‘stamina potions’ to unlock chapters. This is probably the game’s only downfall - you can buy as many potions as you want but for those of us that can’t afford that, you have to wait four hours to get 1 stamina potion and a chapter can cost anything from 2-5. (Though the game will sometimes give you extra as a daily gift.)

While this can be frustrating when you’re getting really into the story, I actually like it because it stops the game from ruining my life/taking up all my time which it totally would if I could just skip through all the chapters. 

You also gain affinity for each of the love interests through your difference choices in interaction with them and sometimes need a certain level to unlock the next scene. If you don’t have enough, you have to play a potion making mini-game. This was initially tedious but they’ve just updated the game and totally fixed it so it doesn’t take too long. (This goes for a couple of other things as well, if you tried the game a while back and got frustrated with how it worked, I’d recommend giving it another go now.)

There are also coins and starstones, both of which you can use to buy different clothing (for the aesthetic/necessity for a scene/extra affinity for a character) for MC and the latter of which you can use to read a chapter even if you are lacking in affinity for a character - which I wouldn’t actually recommend doing because it means you’ll still be lacking later when the threshold is even higher.

In summary: 

Completely against expectation and advertised appearance, this game is LGBT+ inclusive, hilarious, engaging, free to download/play (though with purchase options) and not too likely to ruin your life. I give it a solid 8/10 because as much as I do appreciate it letting me get on with other things, I wish I didn’t have to wait nearly a day if the next chapter needs 5 stamina potions. 

The Royal Wedding

Hey guys! So for the past two weeks, I have been participating as a tlc secret santa. I have written so many fics during those two weeks and now, I have a final Christmas gift for @drew-tanaka-is-my-wife and for @tlcsecretsanta who have been amazing!

Hope you all like it (and sorry if it’s quite long lol) 😀


Cinder was nervous- heck, had she ever been this nervous? Even though it had lessened yesterday when Kai snuck into her room at night, her anxiety had started up again in the morning.


She was worried about her vows. She already knew Kai’s vows would be perfect and despite getting used to speeches being written for her (with some participation on her part), she wanted to do this herself. She felt so much for Kai and didn’t know how to put it into words. She would think about them when the time comes, she thought.


As the maids curled her fringe and brushed on make up, Cinder rubbed her sweaty hand against her thigh. She took several deep breaths, calming her erratic heart rate. She blinked away the warning on her interface.


She thought about what Kai must be doing at this moment. She smiled as she thought of his carefree smile, his gorgeous, mesmerising brown eyes, his-


‘Now that’s the kind of smile I want to see from my dear empress to be!’


Cinder glanced in the mirror, smiling as she caught sight of Iko. 


Cinder gasped. 


Iko wore a beautiful, blue fitted dress that reached her ankles. Her braided hair was opened out and voluminsed, almost looking like a blue cloud around her head. Cinder attempted to turn her head around but remembering the maids around her, she stayed in place. 


‘Wow, Iko. You look amazing!‘ 


Iko grinned from ear to ear. She twirled, showing Cinder every part of her dress.  ‘Thank you!‘ 


Iko whistled as she stopped behind Cinder. 


‘You are looking fab-u-lous! I’ve always said you would look amazing if you dressed up!’ Iko complimented. 


Cinder grinned, her cheeks heating up. 


‘Well, it’s hard to think about dressing up when everyone takes one glance at this,’ Cinder raised her cyborg hand, ‘and runs away, disgusted.‘ 


Iko gawked at her. 


‘Seriously? Times have changed now, Cinder. Do you know how many fans you have?’


Instantly, Cinder’s interface was bombarded by millions of feeds- fanart of Kai and Cinder, articles on what dress they thought Cinder might look good in, praise on the funding she had done for cyborg children, polls on whether Cinder would be anything like Levana (she highly doubted that) and even comments on her work of encouraging lunar and earthen marriages which some people were still skeptical about. 


Cinder blinked away the results.


‘Too much to count, it seems.’


Iko dismissed the maids, saying she would take it from here. She tightened Cinder’s bun at the back, a huge smile on her face. She reached over Cinder’s shoulder for the flower embedded comb that was attached to her veil. She ran the comb into the front of her bun and smoothed down her veil from behind. 


Iko leaned her face against Cinder’s. 


'Who would have thought that a cyborg and an android would be so welcomed by the people of New Beijing?’ Iko said, her voice dripping with awe. 


Cinder sighed.


'Do you think Peony would hate me?’ Cinder asked. 


Iko side glanced at her. 


'Why would you think that?’


'Well, you remember how much Peony loved Kai. She had posters of him everywhere in her room. And here I am, marrying the man of her dreams.’


Iko laughed, shaking her head. She crouched beside Cinder, holding her hands in hers. 


'Do you know what I think? I think Peony is watching up there, swooning at the both of you. Peony loved you dearly, you know. If she was here now, she’d probably scold at you for being so depressing on your wedding day.' 


They both laughed. 


Cinder stared at Iko with a warm smile. 


'I don’t know what I would have done if I didn’t have you, Iko.' 


Iko sniffed. 


'Are you trying to make me cry, Cinder? Because even though I can’t cry, it sure leaves an awful feeling in my stomach. Luckily you can’t cry or else you would have ruined your make up.’


Iko straightened up. 


Come on, up you get. Let me see how you look.' 


Iko stepped back. Cinder rose from her chair and paused behind it, giving Iko a full view of her dress. 


White lace covered her from her neck to her breasts before camouflaging into her silk dress. Intertwined in the lace, was a silhouette shape of two planets, joining together at the middle- representing Earth and Luna.


The elegant, white dress clung perfectly to her slim waist, flowing outwards from her hips in a dome shape.


Cinder twirled, revealing her lace- covered shoulders and partially bare back. Cinder spun back around, liking the way her dress swished at her ankles. 


Iko clasped her hands together, excitement rolling off her in huge waves.


On cue, the door creaked open to reveal Winter, Scarlet and Cress. Cinder stared with awe at their dresses. 


Their red Chinese styled dresses were carved perfectly to their figures. Beautiful pink blossoms were pinned into the side of their hair.


Cress’s eyes widened.


'You look beautiful, Cinder!’ She exclaimed.


Cinder smiled, her blush deepening. 


'Kai is a lucky man,’ Scarlet teased, caressing her baby bump. 


Winter approached Cinder. She held her face in her hands and kissed her forehead tenderly. 


'My dear cousin, you are quite a sight. Fit for an Empress,’ Winter complimented, winking. 


Cinder thanked them and complimented them back.


Cinder stared at each of them, overwhelmed at the attention. She glanced down at her hands. She had once felt ugly, unworthy of attention. And here she was now, being spoiled of it. 


'Ok, girls, how about a group pic before we go!’ Iko cheered.


As the group gathered together and Iko held out her portscreen, Cinder smiled widely. 


Thank God she couldn’t cry. If she could, she would probably fill the whole room with them.  ——


The night sky brightened and sparkled with booming, multicoloured fireworks. The streets filled with the cheers of people as they watched the parade go by- dragons dancing along, music guiding their every move. Even some lunar acrobats danced by, using their glamour to change into different animals for the children.

Some children created lanterns with their parents, drawing moons intertwined with earths to symbolise four years of peace between the two planets since Levana’s reign. 


Kai laughed along as he watched the parade from the broadcast screens displayed inside and outside the ballroom. This was not only a day of his happiness but a day of happiness for his people. Finally, after two years of preparation, Kai and Cinder were getting married. 


Those two years had been busy - with Cinder moving into the palace and getting adjusted to it, Kai and Cinder being broadcast at different places where they tried to unite lunars and earthens (including attending wedding of lunars and earthens) and stopping the degradation of cyborgs.


Kai smiled as he saw little children with cyborg limbs, hopping up and down on the spot with delight, mixed in between other excited children.


They had done good so far, Kai thought. He was proud of how much of an inspirational figure Cinder had become. 


He stood at the altar, watching as guests filed into the ball. He was surprised to see some of the commonwealth minsters here too- some of them still couldn’t get past the idea of Cinder being a lunar. 


He glanced around at the beautiful decorations. Red, paper lanterns hung in rows across the ceiling, their light giving the ballroom a romantic feel. Sweet, honey- like aromas diffused in the air, mixing with the delicious aromas of food. They filled his nose with delight. 


Waiters rushed around the ball, giving the guest refreshments whilst the wedding preparations were still in progression.


He noticed Wolf, Thorne, Jacin at the table with the refreshments, dressed in black suits. A red blossom sat in their suit pockets. They were also joined by kinney- the guard he had met on Luna. Wolf ate away at his food whilst Thorne talked and laughed. Kinney laughed along whilst Jacin cracked a small smile at what Thorne had said- a first. 


Kai stared up at the top of the stairs, his mind reverting back to when Cinder had stumbled into the ball, her dress wet and dirty, but her eyes bright. He smiled. Cinder had quite a knack for entrances. 


He shifted on his feet, awaiting her presence.


'Eager to get married, are we?' 


Kai turned to his side to find Torin strolling to him, also wearing a black suit. A grin pulled on the corner of his mouth.


Kai rubbed the nape of his neck. 


'Yeah, I guess I am. I have been waiting two years for this. Can you blame me for wanting to make her my empress already?’ Kai replied. 


Torin approached Kai and held him by his shoulders. 


'You have grown to become a great man, Kaito. Just like your father,’ Torin said.


Kai felt a lump in his throat. 


He wished his father was here, to witness who he had become. His father’s absence dampened his excitement. 


As if reading his mind, Torin said,  'It was not easy for you to pick up where your father had left off. The letumosis disease had taken him from us far too quickly. But you kept faith even when everyone else doubted you. If it wasn’t for you and your friends, we would all have been ruled over by Levana. Take pride in what you have done. Your father would have been very proud of you. As am I to you.' 


Torin pulled him into a tight hug. Kai held back his tears and patted Torin’s back. 


'Thank you, Torin.' 


They pulled apart. 


Torin smiled. 


'Now I’d best get preparing. I do have a wedding to officiate after all.’ Torin walked towards the altar. 


Kai had asked Torin if he would be willing to officiate their wedding. He had known him ever since he was a child and couldn’t think of any other way to thank him and honor him by giving him this privilege. Torin was touched and agreed. 


At that moment, Wolf, Scarlet and Jacin joined him. Wolf patted him on the back. Kai noticed Thorne’s absence. The two guys had reassured him that he would be back in time.


Kai rubbed his hands with glee as he glanced around. He stared back at the top of the stairs and waited for Cinder to appear. 


——


Getting through the street was hectic but exhilarating. As they all hurried along, Iko handing Cinder her bouquet and commanding the servants to hold the helm of Cinder’s dress, all Cinder could think of was Kai, waiting at the altar. And how she was going to get down those stairs without falling. 


Iko had bought these matching white high heels for her wedding dress- she got the cyborg shoe made for her especially. It took a bit of time for Cinder to get used to them but she could handle them now. She hoped they would be secure enough.


Cinder ran through the plan in her head. 


As the parade would finish, she would walk down the street, greeting the people before she ascended into the ball room. It was Iko’s idea- she was her wedding planner after all. Iko wanted it to feel almost like a journey, how Cinder once used to be a mechanic in a poor street and was now about to be an Empress. 


Empress. The word still felt foreign to her. Cinder had grown used to 'Queen’ but 'Empress’ was taking it a step further. More responsibilities to uphold. The thought of her being empress scared her, but she knew that with Kai by her side, she would get through it. 


'Hello ladies,’ a familar, smug voice sounded before them.


Cinder shook out of her reverie.

Thorne leaned against a market stall, a playful grin on his face. 


His eyes lingered at them all and rested on Cress. He grinned widely, making Cress blush. 


'You all look very stunning, even you Cinder, if i have to admit.' 


Cinder laughed, resisting the urge to nudge his arm. 


'Thank you. Shouldn’t you be with Kai?’ Cinder asked, her heart beat peaking slightly.


Thorne waved his hand dismissively. 


'Yes, I know. But I wanted to ask you something first.' 


Cinder raised an eyebrow.


Thorne straightened up, his face growing serious. 


'I know you felt awkward about going down the aisle on your own. So I was wondering… if you would like me to walk down the aisle with you?’ Thorne asked. 


Cinder’s heart warmed. She cleared the emotion from her throat.


'Thorne… That is…’


'Sweet, I know.’ Thorne smirked. He held her hands.


'Although I may not show it, your friendship does mean a lot to me. If it wasn’t for you, I would have escaped that prison cell later than I would have wanted. And I wouldn’t have met Cress.’ He glanced at her and winked. 


'So I want to make it up to you. What do ya say?' 


Cinder pulled a one sided grin. 


'As long as you don’t step on my dress or flirt with the guests, then why not?’


Thorne smiled widely. 


'I promise I will be on my best behaviour. Unless I’m near Cress, then I don’t know about that,’ Thorne teased.


'Thorne!’ Cress lightly punched his shoulder before planting a quick kiss on his cheek.


Cress, Iko and winter positioned themselves in front of Cinder.  


Thorne stood beside Cinder, curling her arm around his. He pushed his chest out with pride. 


'Shall we?’


With a nod, they all strolled through the crowded street. Extravagant music sounded, announcing Cinder’s arrival. The people separated, leaving a pathway decorated with crimson petals. 


Cinder held back her gasp, keeping her eyes focused on the several faces that greeted her. 


The people bowed and cheered as she walked past. She smiled as the children held up their lanterns with radiant smiles. Their parents lit them up and let them float into the sky. A whole array of purple, yellow and blue lanterns swayed in the air, illuminating the night sky. 


Cinder spared a glance at the lanterns, a wide smile spreading across her face. Cress, Iko and Winter giggled with delight. Cinder thanked the children for the display. 


Gripping onto the side of her dress, Thorne escorted her up the stairs. With every step, Cinder remembered when she had first rushed up these very same stairs to warn Kai about Levana. How long ago that was now.  


Cinder felt a sense of tranquility flood through her as she reached the top of the stairs. 


This was it. 


——


This was it, Kai thought. From inside the ball, the muffled music in the distance informed him that Cinder was here. 


Kai noticed Thorne was still not here. Jacin and Wolf had then told him about Thorne’s plan to walk Cinder down the aisle. 


Kai was touched at Thorne’s offer. He noted to himself to thank Thorne when he saw him. 


Kai could hear the cheers and hoots of the people and saw several lanterns floating into the air. 


A sudden pang of nervousness hit him in his stomach. He ran a tentative hand through his hair and adjusted his red and yellow militia uniform. 


Cress, Iko and Winter glided down the steps, grinning widely. 


The crowd inside the ball gasped.


Kai followed their gazes and saw why. 


At the top of the stairs, stood Cinder, her arm interlocked with Thorne’s. 


His heart oozed with warmth. He let his jaw drop. 


Behind her veil, Cinder glanced at him, a beautiful smile across her face. 


Kai grinned widely, unable to cover his dumbstruck trance. 


Cinder watched the steps as she descended them gracefully. Thorne stared at Kai, giving him a 'isn’t she beautiful?’ look.


Kai nodded. 


Reaching the last step, Cinder strode to him, her eyes staring into his and only his. 


Kai felt his heart would explode at any moment. 


He glanced back at Torin who gave him an approved nod. 


Thorne left Cinder beside Kai and took up his place with Wolf and Jacin. Cress, Iko, Scarlet and Winter stood beside Cinder. 


'Hi,’ Kai greeted Cinder. 


'Hey,’ Cinder whispered. 


With her cyborg hand, she held onto his hand. 


'You look beautiful.' 


'You don’t look so bad yourself,’ Cinder replied, winking at him. 


Kai let out a small laugh. 


He nodded at Torin to begin.


—–


Torin ran them through the customs- tying ribbons onto each other’s wrists and slipping rings onto each other’s fingers as they repeated words after Torin. 


Then came the vows. 


Cinder focused on Kai’s handsome smile, blinking away the warning of her blood pressure increasing. 


Kai cleared his throat and then recited:


'Cinder. Ever since we met, you always intrigued me. That day when I met you in your workshop, it was your eyes that surprised me. You had such sadness in them. I didn’t understand it at the time as all I saw was a independent, beautiful and talented woman working away in her workshop. 


'It was then that I realised I wanted to know more about you and why you were sad. And then eventually, all I wanted was to remove that sadness from you. When I found out about you being a cyborg and a lunar, I realised what you must have gone through. But despite that, it never changed how I felt about you. You were still that carefree mechanic who saw me as myself and not as a prince.' 


Kai rubbed her knuckles with his thumbs. His voice grew more soft.


'Fighting against Levana with you was the best time I’ve ever had. Yes, there was the stress of defeating Levana and all, but I couldn’t have asked for a better partner than you. I love you to the moon and back and no matter what people say about cyborgs and lunars, I will never judge you nor think you any less of a person than me. 


'I love you for who you are. And it would give me nothing but joy if you became my empress. I will love you, Cinder, till the day I die.' 


Kai kissed her knuckles. 


Goosebumps rushed through Cinder’s whole body. 


Cinder smiled, her eyes starting to ache with the urge to cry. She was right. His vows were perfect. 


Sighs of swoon echoed in the ballroom. 


Now it was Cinder’s turn. She took a deep breath before speaking:


'Kai, my beloved emperor. If I hadn’t met you, I wouldn’t have believed that dreams could come true. When you entered my workshop, all I could think about was telling my sister that you were there. And that you were as handsome as she had said.


'But when we kept bumping into each other, all I could think about was meeting you again and talking to you. You made me relax and forget that I was someone no one cared for.’


Cinder glanced up briefly at her surroundings.


'When you discovered I was a cyborg and lunar, in this very same place, I knew for sure that you wouldn’t want anything to do with me. I was a person of two species that people despised. But here you are, before me, loving me all the same. 


'You made me feel special when I thought I was nothing. You were willing to fight other people’s judgments to be with me. And there are no words that can describe how much love and respect I have for you.


'If i had to go through everything I did again, knowing that you would be my happily ever after, then I would. I love you with all my heart and I will stand by your side, no matter what. I promise I will never let that handsome smile of yours fade,’ Cinder finished, bringing his hands to her lips.  


Cinder could hear Iko sniff behind her. That was a good sigh. She smiled with relief. She relished the warmth that emitted from Kai’s smile. 


A moment of silence fell over them, the words absorbing into the crowd. 


And then Torin continued on. 


Two people approached them, holding cushions where two crowns rested.  


Kai folded her veil behind her head. 


As Torin announced them Emperor and Empress, Kai and Cinder leaned in to kiss. 


Cinder felt her insides melt as she felt his soft lips on hers. 


Applause and cheers echoed in the ball, reverberating through their bodies. They both pulled apart, the warmth dissipating between them.


They both faced the guests, their hands joined firmly. 


The crowns were planted onto their heads. 


Cinder’s heart pumped loudly. Full of life. 


It took her only a moment to register it- she was now an Empress of the Eastern commonwealth.


—–


The ball was lively with music, dancing and laughter. It was funny to see how some of the guests really acted when they weren’t being broadcast to the people of New Beijing. Some of the guests ate away at the food served, like beasts. So much for etiquette. 


Cinder stifled a giggle. She glanced to her side where Thorne danced with Cress, who swayed on his toes and Jacin twirled Winter in circles. 


Scarlet and Wolf sat at a table, feeding each other some cake whilst Iko stood at another table where she gave a scolding look at Kinney. Kinney stopped munching his cake, a questioning look on his face. 


Cinder swayed on the dancefloor with Kai, her arms around his neck. She turned back to him. He pressed his forehead to hers, brushing his lips against hers. 


'So, Empress, what did you think of my vows?’ Kai asked, raising a curious eyebrow. 


Cinder smirked. 


'Very cheesy, but every bit sweet.’ Cinder gave him a kiss. 


Kai pulled a one sided grin. 


'I could say the same for you. I told you, you would be good at writing your own speeches. You need to believe in yourself.’


'Well, at least I got you to believe in me.' 


Out of nowhere, Thorne interrupted their dance. 


'May I have a dance with the 'empress’?’ Thorne asked with a smug smile. 


'I think you should stick to calling me Cinder. You make 'Empress’ sound creepy when you say it,’ Cinder teased. 


Thorne stuck his tongue out. 


Kai patted him on the shoulder.


'Thank you for walking Cinder down the aisle. I appreciate it,’ Kai said. 


Thorne nodded. 


'No problem. I always wondered how it must feel to have all that attention on you. It’s pretty exhilarating,’ Thorne said mischievously. 


Cinder nudged his arm. 


'Can’t even compliment you without you adding to it,’ Cinder remarked. 


Kai glanced up at the top of the stairs, a wide smile on his face.


He interlocked his hand with hers.


'Looks like that dance will have to wait, Thorne,’ Kai said.


As Thorne protested, Kai guided Cinder up the steps. Cinder asked Kai where he was taking her but he just told her to follow him.


They reached the top and walked along the platform. Kai guided her to two chairs in the corner, bathed in the moonlight. 


Cinder followed the light back up to its source, gawking at the sight of the bright moon in the distance.


'It’s beautiful, isn’t it? I thought it’d be a nice view to watch from here,’ Kai said, seating himself in his chair. Cinder straightened her dress from behind and sat back in the chair.


She couldn’t stop the sigh of relief escaping her lips. She realised then she had been in these shoes the whole day.


They both gazed up at the moon. 


'Do you miss being up there?’ Kai asked after a moment of silence.


Cinder shook her head. 


'It was never really my home, even though I was born up there. I guess it felt good in a way, being Queen of Luna. I could at least make some changes to Artemisia after how Levana ruled it. But not everything could be changed. Not everyone either. That’s why I decided to have a prime minister up there. Besides.’


Cinder glanced at Kai,


'This has always been my home. With you.' 


Kai reached for her hand and held it firmly. 


He caressed their hands with his free hand. He stroked them with thought.


'I know it will be difficult now that you are Empress. The responsibities and the demand of people and so on. And I know we still need to get rid of the stigma of lun-' 


Cinder leaned towards him. She stared into his eyes. 


'I know. And I am prepared for it. Nothing can be perfect. Although some things may be set in stone, it doesn’t mean we can’t etch new things on it. We will change things as best as we can. For the better,’ Cinder reassured, a confident smile on her face.


Kai nodded, matching her smile. 


'Spoken like a true empress.' 


As they exchanged a kiss and Kai changed the subject to their honeymoon, the moon shone brighter, bathing the whole palace in its glorious light.

For the au thing, feuilly getting a new camera and being really excited about it and snapping pics of the les Amis all over the place and when they least expect it

Oh my god this is so cute.  I need more Feuilly feels in my life

  1. Feuilly has to save up for quite a while to get the camera he had his eye on.  No one else quite gets why he was so keen on getting a camera when he has a fine one on his phone already and they cheerfully rib him about it, but when his birthday comes around most of his gifts consist of money to go into the Camera Fund (as well as a gift card that will help him get some pictures developed professionally from Grantaire who “knows a guy”, an empty photo album from Courfeyrac, and a camera case from Combeferre who knew the dangers of unprotected cameras and water, having lost one when he was out trying to take pictures of frogs in a rainstorm.
  2. Feuilly has a lot of fun with it when everyone is out drinking.  He rarely gets more than a drink or two because a) he often has to work in the morning, and b) it’s really expensive and the reality of his life is he just doesn’t have the money to spend on drinks as often as the others.  So he is not only often the sole largely sober people in the room, but he’s now the sober one with a camera.  Waking up the next morning with a hangover and working up the courage to check Feuilly’s Facebook has become something of a rite of passage.  Some of it they’re actually delighted to have saved, such as an amazing picture of Bossuet managing to balance Joly’s cane on his forehead (shortly followed by a picture of a frantic looking Bossuet and a blurred cane as it fell and knocked over half the drinks on the table), while others people are still trying to dispose of (such as one of Enjolras, red-faced and giddy, with his head thrown back in drunken laughter and his glass listing too far to the side and spilling beer down his front.  Grantaire has printed that one out life-size on the school printers and stuck it up around Enjolras’ apartment more than once.)
  3. One evening Enjolras is mid-speech – seriously, he has worked himself into a fit of blazing, righteous passion, he almost burnt with the intensity of it – when the sound of the camera’s shutters click and whirr and Enjolras completely losing his train of thought when he realizes the camera had been pointed at him instead of one of their friends doing something silly.  “Sorry, I didn’t mean to distract you, you’re just so passionate… and I wanted a picture of you like that, of when you’re at your brightest, when you manage to take something we all believe in so strongly and put it into words,” Feuilly explains earnestly. Enjolras tries to get back on track a couple times after that, but he’s ridiculously flattered and is blushing so hard that eventually he gives up and sits back down.
  4. After a little while the constant photo-taking becomes more routine and everyone starts going out of their way to sabotage the pictures.  If they hear him coming up they’ll turn and pull a face, if they hear the shutters going they’ll try to move last minute – there’s always a collection of bunny ears and tongues and crossed eyes.  Feuilly never gets annoyed, he just laughs and enjoys it as much as everyone else. After a while though people start to feel bad about ruining all of Feuilly’s pictures but when they try to apologize he just rolls his eyes because while his friends are great they think a little too highly of themselves – as if they could ruin all his pictures.  And so he whips out his camera and shows them the screen and they realize for every ridiculous picture of Joly making his eyes bug out or Grantaire pulling Marius in front of his face last minute there’s three more of Courfeyrac and Jehan bathed in morning light as they sit by the café window and drink tea, or Bahorel in the zone while wraps his hands for a fight, or Combeferre peeking up from behind the book he’s reading, looking delighted by the sudden company.  Even the bad ones can’t really be called bad – not by Feuilly at least – because they illustrate his friends in motion, not just scripted still lives.
  5. And Feuilly prints out all of these pictures (sometimes he pays to have them developed on proper photo paper, sometimes he just uses his shitty desktop printer – it depending on how tight money is at the time) and pins them up around his room.  Of course when Les Amis come over and see this they spend the entire evening exploring, admiring, laughing, teasing… and noticing one very big thing: Feuilly isn’t in any of them.  Obviously, because he was the one taking them.  This kicks off an important mission for the rest of Les Amis though and that Christmas Feuilly is presented with a bulky, clumsily wrapped gift. Opening it, he finds a huge photo album and in that… pictures of him.  Some clearly taken with cellphone cameras at random, unexpected moments, like the one of him, Bossuet, and Joly, faces covered in powdered sugar from the churros they were eating when the three of them and Grantaire spent an afternoon on the wharf looking at the artisan stalls.  Others were group selfies, someone’s arm reaching out of the image, ones that had him pressed, grinning and laughing, between various groups of friends on various days.  There were some artsy ones, like the one of him lying in the grass, partially blurred, with the flowers Jehan had woven into his hair in almost overly-sharp focus, that Feuilly would bet anything came from Cosette’s tiny, lime-green camera. There were even some that clearly came from Jehan’s bulky, film camera, unpredictable in their finish as Jehan was still learning different ways to expose them – one sepia photo showed Feuilly in Bahorel’s heavy coat because it had started raining and he’d only been in a t-shirt made him look like something from an old, corny spy movie.  The pictures were done up in ever sort of filter, were collected from everywhere – from Facebook albums, to ones that Feuilly recognized from an old photography project Grantaire had done, to ones that Feuilly recognized from a few weeks ago.  (After he takes the time to pull each and every one of them into a hug they set up Feuilly’s camera on a timer and race to get one with everyone in the picture.  Feuilly has it on his fridge for months even though his cheeks are all red in it from crying.)
