the trumpeter swan

Watch on

So, this week is apparently the last days ever that is going to actually exist as a thing. I can’t even tell if all these posts will still exist on Wednesday. Got a huge amount of posts from Vine this year, so for the next couple days lets share some content from Vine before it vanishes. A flock of birds flying over Stokksnes, Iceland.

It only took me a millenia to get this finished…DAYUM she’s finally done! Vivien the Umbra Witch! 

She’s not perfect, but I had to kick myself into gear and get this finished! 

Vivien is a Witch that was born in France to a Gypsy Mother. However her Mother left when she was very young, and thus she was raised by her Father, the Mortal Musician. She was taken away from her Father and into the Umbran Clan after exhibiting a powerful affinity for magic, and she has been studying ever since. 

She managed to survive the witch hunts by sealing herself on the top of a frigid mountain with only the lake and the snow to keep her company. When she returned, her focus became her Mother. Desperately searching to see if she was still alive–

And so the search continues. 



English and French:


1) Why such a face?// Pourquoi cette tête?

2)  Do you believe in the power of love?//Crois-tu au pouvoir de l'amour?

3)  Don’t be too hard on yourself.//Ne sois pas si dur envers toi-même.


1) I can be your Angel, or I can be a Witch!//Je peux être ton ange, ou ta sorcière!

2) You cannot escape your fate, my dear. That’s what the Umbra Teaches.//Tu ne peux échapper à ton destin, mon cher. C'est ce qu'enseigne l'Umbra.

Weapon Taunts:
Scared of a little love tap?
You must be a masochist.
The difference between you and I is a matter of class.
Grace, Precision, and Honor.
My voice will be the last thing you hear.
Let me whip you into shape!
That was quite the work out~

What if Zayn were a duckling? - an AU

Phone conversation between Lilo afterwards:


Louis: Isn’t it too early to be pulling birds at the club?

Liam: I mean a real bird! Uh, a quack quack bird? At the park. Anyway, it was the bird who pulled me, actually -

Louis: [stops chewing gum]

Liam: - it pulled my shoelace, I mean. Haha! And then guess what -

Louis: Okay. Are you telling me that instead of Leda and the swan, we’ve now got Liam and the duck.

Liam: W-wait a second. [angrily] What exactly -

Louis: I’m not saying you’re going to pop out two sets of twins in a pair of eggs, for god’s sake, Li, calm down. If your duck turns out to be a Greek god I don’t think you’d complain

Liam: You think I’m joking, but I’m not. It could write! You should come see this duck.

Louis: [grimly] No thanks. The only duck I like is Donald.

Liam: But there’s other wildlife around too…maybe you’ll meet a cool creature too like-

Louis: I hear Niall at the doorbell. Talk to you later, Liam! Cheers. [Hangs up]

Liam: [sadly] …like…a frog or something….
