the-end-of-magic

So the other night I was thinking about how CS has overcome so many things, not just as characters but as a unit, and how they’ve ended a lot of cycles and defied expectations in a magical sense. 

There’s of course, on a more micro level, them breaking the pattern of loneliness and heartbreak in their own lives through knowing and loving one another. But they’ve also been the key to other, larger prophecies/spells/etc. There’s the fact that they were the ingredients needed to activate the hat in 4A. There’s the matter of them and their love being strong enough to defeat the darkness (which Merlin and Nimue had been unable to do) whose names were even on Excalibur together, and then paralleling Orpheus and Eurydice in the UW. And now they’re presumably being positioned as the ones who could overcome the “Savior is doomed” destiny. 

I just love how, together especially, Emma and Hook are this force to be reckoned with that’s already the stuff of legend.

An AU where Sans is happy and nothing bad every happens to him, his friends, or Pappy

I don’t think we’re in Snowdin Anymore // Accepting

THAT’S PRETTY MUCH SANS ON THE SURFACE AFTER EVERYTHING SORTS OUT AND THERE’S NO MORE RESETS AND EVERYTHING IS HUNKEY DOREY, so I’m gonna write my headcanons on that

  • Sans becomes a teacher. It was not something that had been planned, or anything he ever thought he’d be inclined to do. Tori had simply asked him to come by and show of his telescope to the class, maybe talk a little bit about the movements of the stars and planets- And Sans completely ate it up. After a couple more impromptu science visits, Toriel convinced him that maybe he should apply for something a little more permanent than an occasional visit. He did.

  • Sans and Papyrus share a two bedroom apartment in the city. It’s much smaller than their place in Snowdin, but the two make it work. They have a fantastic view of Mount Ebott from their window.

  • Sans enjoys cooking. Since getting back into the swing of things, he’s actually started helping his brother out with meals and manages to occasionally convince Paps to make something other than spaghetti. They’ve turned into quite the pair of cooks.

  • For the first time in a very long time, Sans can actually look at himself in a mirror and honestly say he is happy.

  • ….Despite allowing himself to progress, and learn, and try, Sans is still afraid. He still fears that it’s going to Reset. That he’s going to wake up back in Snowdin. That nothing is permanent. With each passing year, the fear dwindles and the nightmares become less and less frequent. But deep down, he doesn’t think he’ll ever get over it.
Library at Mount Char: urban fantasy that has the magic #1yrago

Scott Hawkins’s debut horror novel, The Library at Mount Char, is a sprawling, epic contemporary fantasy about cruelty and the end of the world, compulsively readable, with the deep, resonant magic of a world where reality is up for grabs.

We meet Carolyn, a mysterious librarian, after she’s murdered a police detective, and is headed home, covered in blood, and wondering if she’ll have to kill the good samaritans who stop to offer her a ride. Very quickly we learn that the librarianship that Carolyn practices is very different to the kind we’re accustomed to – that it involves the systematic acquisition of the knowledge that will allow her to manipulate reality itself.

Carolyn and her 11 adopted siblings live in the Library, a place outside of ordinary reality, where each of them has been dedicated to the study of a different Catalog, learning the dark mysteries of speaking to animals; the practice of total war; and the wandering of the lands of the dead, along with the power to bring the dead back to the living. All these Catalogs were both written and assigned by the man whom they call Father, who has ruled Earth for 60,000 years, and whose cruelty in their training is without limit.

And Father is missing, perhaps dead. With his absence, the ancient powers he defeated at the dawn of the Third Age of Earth are crowding in, threating the unimaginably horrible end of all life – possibly of the universe. The Librarians – fractious and murderous – must find him, or possibly settle the matter of succession, in a contest that recapitulates all the terrors of their training.

This is Hawkins’s first book, but he plots like a master, and carries the book into a fourth act that breaks new territory in existential horror. Though this is not without its rough edges, The Library at Mount Char is a first-rate novel, tue-curlingly terrifying in places, un-put-down-able, and filled with a curious and vital compassion for life and its duties.

probably not completely uncommon, but I like the headcanon of Yugi having at least /some/ shadow magic. Before and after the series ends.

Yes. like yugi was connected to the puzzle to hes gotta have something! I really like the idea of all the hikaris having “light magic” that is only awoken by there yamis magic! ecpecialy in acient egypt au! like i just like the idea of yugi is about to get beat up by the school bullies and then he just shouts “PLEASE STOP” and all the bullies fly backwards and hit a wall. and he runs home crying not because he almost got beat up but he hurt someone. It would take a long time of calming down for yami to convince him it was a good thing and that it was purley self defence and that yugi would never hurt anyone iif he didnt have to. 

Random Headcanons For Isabella
  • She dislikes plain food. Anything that has a taste to it/is spicy she will enjoy immensely. 
  • Isabella usually sleeps on her side, curled up into an almost ball-shape.
  • She also doesn’t like sleeping with her back to windows/doors.
  • While many think otherwise, Bella can’t cook for shit. Oh Maker, she’s tried.. But it just… It never works out in the end.
  • Isabella doesn’t despise blood magic, she’s fine with it as long as people don’t abuse it like most do in Tevinter.
  • While she tries to do everything in her power to not become like her parents.. Isabella had to use blood magic in order to save Gabe from being their father’s ‘pet’.
  • She has a pretty deep scar on her inner arm because of this, although it’s not extremely noticeable unless one stares at it for a long period of time.
  • She tries hard to hide it, but Isabella is a perfectionist and might have OCD.. (Still trying to figure out if I want to give her it or not).
  • Isabella is wary of most templars at first, seeing as how she’s only heard horror stories about the Southern templars that lock mages away and keep them on a tight leash.
  • Her greatest fear is losing control and becoming like her parents.
  • When she isn’t doing research/going out on missions, Isabella can either be found in the library or the training grounds.
  • As much as she enjoys the beauty of flowers, Bella is actually pretty allergic to them.
  • Isabella loves water, whether it’s lakes, oceans, seas, etc. Her favorite place in Tevinter is their family’s summer home in Qarinus because it’s right along the coast and she and Gabriel used to spend hours playing in the water/looking for shells.
  • Isabella is pansexual, although.. She tends to lean more towards females, just because she finds them… Exquisite.

do you ever stop to think what it would be like if the dursleys were nice to harry? what if their reason for hating magic wasn’t simply that it was magic and they were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much but that it took petunia’s sister away from her and then killed her? what if it wasn’t even really hatred bc wizards are different and not normal but accumulated pain and fear bc some wizards kill?

imagine harry actually being able to call priver drive his home. imagine him having a room like any other kid and playing with dudley and eating full meals every day. imagine dudley defending harry instead of being the one to bully him. imagine the dursleys celebrating harry’s birthdays as well, having his pictures on the walls next to dudley’s, buying him new clothes, hugging him. imagine if they actually told him the truth about his parents, that they had magic and they were killed but they loved him so so much. imagine harry being able to talk with petunia about his mother, to hear stories about her childhood and what was she liked and that he has her eyes and they’re beautiful. imagine harry getting to read his letter at breakfast and be excited bc he’s like his mum and dad, he has magic too.

imagine harry knowing love from the very start.

but now think about this happy harry who would have a family to go back to and ask yourself: would he be so eager to sacrifice himself in the forest? would it be so easy for him to accept death? would there be any reason for him to do just that? of course not. and of course dumbledore knew all that. if the dursleys were indeed nice people dumbledore would probably find a different place for harry bc he needed him broken, he needed him selfless to the point where it’s unhealthy, he needed him to be the weapon to kill voldemort and nobody cares if weapons get a happy childhood, they’re just weapons after all.

So my mom and I went to see Night at the Museum 3 (it was great), and when everyone would normally get up and leave, when the credits started rolling, everyone stayed silent. Everyone sat. Everyone was waiting to see if they would do anything in memory of him.

After his name came on the screen, “The Magic Never Ends” in gold beneath, everyone silently got up and left.

Cause you are my best friend 
And you are where my heart is 
And I know at the day’s end 
I get to come home to you

“Wha-….. hey D: I didn’t get to do my finishing move!”

Run away little heartless!  Possibly a little counter productive for Kairi though…

GIFs and a few screencaps.  Based on a fanart I did a few weeks back (that’s based on this bit of official business).  There were a lot of details to follow in this costume, oy…

I put an uncut GIF on DA and, again, video on YouTube

A lapse in sanity may have led me to animate this…
