[A/N: Finally I’m back! However not with the stuff you wanted or asked for, I am a terrible writer. This is a little rough around the edges but hey-ho!
Okay so this is going to be an anthology series of different pairings (any and all pairings) finding their soulmates and I’m going to be using a multitude of different soulmate tropes! Starting with the soulmate AU, I apologise that this is really wordy but I had to get in all the different elements of what a soulmate consists of. I also plan on probably keeping each post as a one-shot which is maybe a little mean but I kind of like how I ended this one, let me know what you think! Also American readers please excuse my English-isms.]

The sleepy town of Riverdale was illuminated with lights and
colours, Pop’s Chok-Lit-Shoppe flashed
a warm neon red, reflecting against the hoods of the cars that sat parked
outside in the cold dark chill. The words Twilight
Drive-In sat prettily against a dark blue backdrop held above the rusting
letters ‘Closing Soon’, the abandoned
sign creaked under the pressure of a strong wind that struck it heavily. The
large Town Hall stood proudly painted in the freshest of lemon colours, the
shadows of the night illuminated the deceitful corruption that lay hidden
behind the closed doors.
Terrible AU where Dirk’s not lying to Todd and he really does have two jobs.
By day, he runs Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.
By night, he drives for Dirk Gently’s Holistic Taxi Company (that gets people to the right destination maybe 50% of the time, doesn’t actually wait for calls but just sort-of abducts people on the street who look like they might need to go somewhere, has accumulated a frankly terrifying number of speeding tickets).
Eh I gave in and did a studies cum fanart:P Photo reference is by M0Thart, I just changed the model into Nerdanel because I though the colour layout really suited her. Also largely inspired by @goldseven‘s Fields of Gold painting of the same subject. Life drawing classes as I came to realise, are a really humbling experience because of how utterly terrible I am at drawing well, life haha. And its somewhat useful to know if someone ever held a gun to my head and tell me to literally draw on the spot to save my life, I will save time and tell them to just go ahead because I really cannot save my life T u T
“Hey B. Could u write 16. How you
dare coming back? with Kai? Please”
Notes: I know I always say it but I really feel bad for
taking so long with the requests! I hope the wait has been worth it and you like
PS: I know I already wrote this one
with Tony Stark but since it was requested as well with Kai Parker from TVD, I
decided to make it as well :)
You thought you had found love for once and for all after all those
terrible mistakes. Out of nowhere he had appeared in your life, colouring it,
making you feel more alive than ever before, making you question yourself about
everything. It hadn’t been easy. Kai Parker wasn’t easy. He was a psychopath
and a sociopath, a dangerous combination. Everybody told you to stay awake but
you just couldn’t, somehow you were attracted to him and, for some reason, he
was attracted to you as well. You were like two satellites one around the other
until you both put all the cards over the table.
Happiness had never been more authentic for you in your whole life. He
was the one, you just knew it. It didn’t matter all the bad things he had done.
He was a new man which was something that surprised everyone. It didn’t matter
the fact that you were just human, he loved it. It made you two live every
single moment like it was the last.
But you didn’t lie to yourself. You knew he had changed, you knew he was
better than before, but you still knew he was dangerous. You knew he could hurt
many people if someone pissed him off, you knew how much he could hurt you but
you trust him and you knew he would never do anything that would harm you.
You were wrong.
He left as suddenly as he had come into your life months ago, leaving
you with a hole in your heart and in your life. He didn’t leave a note or gave
you an explanation. You just woke up after spending the night with him, he was
gone and no one had seen him. He had just vanished. Immediately, you payed the
Salvatore brothers a visit. They had always been fighting Kai so you accused
them of doing something but soon you found out they were as surprised as you
were. At least Stefan.
Damon just told you all the things you didn’t want to hear: he had left
you, he never cared, he was mad, a psycho and a sociopath who didn’t care for
anyone. He had fun but he got bored and you had to move on with your life.
Which you did. It took you moths, crying and pain but eventually you started to
go out again, to smile and to laugh. Of course you still missed him, like hell,
and you knew you would never feel that way again but your life wouldn’t stop
and you couldn’t forget to live it.
“You look good” Elena told you when you two were having brunch at the
“I feel good”, you nodded with a slight frown. “Better at least”, you
added with a shrug.
“I’m glad”, she smiled at you. “We kinda missed you around”, you smiled
thankfully at her just when Damon came into the dining room.
“Don’t get too excited. She missed you. I never complained”, he said
wrapping his arms around Elena from behind.
You were so happy for them. Damon had fought for Elena during so many
time, he totally deserved to have her. Maybe he was an ass sometimes but you
could see how much they loved each other and, from your experience, you knew
that was the most important thing. It didn’t matter what people say. They were
in love, they were happy and they had to take it.
“He missed you too, don’t listen to him” Elena smiled up at him.
He kissed her forehead before letting go of her and going to the fridge
to grab something drink. Then, he abandoned the room, leaving you two alone.
With a sigh, you left the fork, not being hungry anymore.
“Are you alright?” Elena asked.
“Yes…” you mumbled and then chuckled sadly. “Just…seeing you and Damon
made me think about…you know” you explained.
“I’m sorry…” Elena apologised holding your hand and giving it a tight
“It’s ok. You don’t have to worry”, you gave her a reassuring smile.
“It’s…hard but it’s ok. He made his choice”, you shrugged.
She smiled at you sadly but decided to change topic which you
appreciated. Talking about Kai was still something really sensitive for you and
you rather not thinking about him. When you finished your brunch, you helped
Elena cleaning up, ignoring her complains about it, and left the mansion since
you had some stuff to do at home.
When you parked your car out of your house, you saw another car parked
there that you didn’t recognised. It was a black Porsche you had never seen which
was something strange in Mystic Falls where everyone knew everyone. Maybe it
was a friend of your father or your mother but they were both out of town so it
would be weird. Still confused you got out of your own car and locked it before
walking towards your house.
The moment you opened the door you realised it had been unlocked. Since
it hadn’t been forced, you assumed someone had used the spare key hidden in the
plants. At that point, you were starting to freak out so you took out your
phone and texted a simple SOS to Elena, knowing it would be enough.
Slowly, you walked in the house and closed the door trying not to make
any noises. All you had around to defend yourself was an umbrella so you took
it and started walking further into your home. First, you peeked into the
kitchen which was empty, then the living room but it was just like the kitchen.
It was time to go upstairs. The moment you were on the second floor, you saw
your room opened and immediately you knew where you had to go. You always closed
the door of your room when leaving. Always.
Slowly, trying not to show how scared you really were, you walked to the
room trying not to make any noise. You walked into your room, taking a deep
breath and looked around, feeling how your breath got stuck in your throat the
moment you saw the man who had break into your house.
“Kai…” you mumbled, feeling how you could easily faint just there.
He was there sitting on your bed, with his hands clasped together as he
rested his arms on his knees. The moment you walked in the room, he looked up
at you and then at the umbrella you were using as a protection.
“I hope you weren’t trying to kill someone with that”, he commented
pointing at your ‘weapon’.
Slowly, not believing what you were seeing, you put the umbrella down,
next to the door but without taking your eyes from him. Four months after he
left you completely heartbroken, he just appeared there in your room, like
nothing ever happened, like this was the most ordinary thing in the world.
Your emotions were too confused, just like you: on one hand you wanted
to go, hug him, kiss him, tell him how much you had missed him; on the other
hand, all you wanted to do was punching him, kicking his ass, telling him to go
to hell. But you were completely frozen. No words could come out of your mouth
and your brain couldn’t form any sentence or any word.
Just when he got up you heard more noises downstairs and voices shouting
your name. It was Elena. And of course she would bring Damon and Stefan. Kai
looked at you with a frown when he recognised the voices but you were still
“(Y/N)!” Elena exclaimed running into your room. The moment she saw Kai,
she stopped on her tracks, looking as shocked as you were. “Kai…” she said.
“What the…?” Stefan said when he walked in the room.
“How you dare coming back?” Elena asked with fury in her voice.
“You called them?” Kai asked you. All you could was nod, feeling how
everything was spinning around you.
“Elena…take me out of here, please”, you mumbled not being able to take
your eyes away from the man who broke your heart.
“Sure”, she said taking your arm carefully and dragging you out and
downstairs to the kitchen where she started preparing a cup of tea to calm your
From there you could hear heated voices up in your room. Probably the
three of them where having some kind of arguments but your head could even
think about it at the moment. Everything was too confusing.
“Here…it will help you”, Elena said placing a cup in front of you before
she took a seat next to you. “Hey…look at me”, she whispered trying to get a
reaction from you.
Finally you looked at her, not really knowing what to say. She looked at
you, not knowing what to expect at that moment.
“What is he doing here?” You finally asked, quieter than you expected. Elena
sighed taking your hand.
“I don’t know but…he coming right here…has to mean something”, she said
squeezing your hand.
“What if I don’t want anything to do with him anymore?” You asked.
“That’s it?” His voice said from the kitchen door. You looked at him to
see him standing there with Damon and Stefan behind him.
“Let’s give them time”, Elena said getting up and walking out with the
Salvatore brothers after her.
“You don’t love me anymore?” He
Instead of replying you turned to grab the cup with your hands and took
a sip from it, trying to earn some time to figure your feelings out.
“(Y/N)…” he said moving closer to you.
“I don’t know what I feel right now, Kai”, you finally told him. “I
loved you, more than anything, and then you left. I cried, I grieved you, I was
getting back to my old me and now…you’re here, like you never left, how am I supposed
“I had to leave. There was a reason”, he said with a frown.
“Care to elaborate?” You asked sarcastic. He sighed and ran a hand through
“I really was hoping I could explain all of this over dinner or
something”, he said.
“I have no time for dinners or any kind of that shit. Talk now or you
can leave just like you did once”, you said coldly. He gulped as he heard your
tone and nodded.
“This woman, a witch, was looking for me. She…wanted something from me.
Something I couldn’t give her, not anymore. So when told her no she…threatened
me. She told me she would…” he closed his eyes for a moment and took a deep
breath. “She said she would kill you and…send you to hell, literally, if I didn’t
do as she said. I had no other option than leaving. I couldn’t risk you.”
“What did she wanted you to do?” You asked frowning.
“She wanted me to…look for a vampire slash wizard. She wanted his magic
and I was the only one who could transfer it”, he explained.
“Why didn’t you tell me?” You inquired. He chuckled a little and looked
at you like he had always done. With such love in his eyes that made you look
“Would you have let me go?” He questioned. Biting your lip you looked at
him, ready to say yes, but the moment you looked into his eyes you knew you
would have done anything to keep him with you. So you looked away. “Exactly”,
You sighed and looked down at your hands, not knowing what to say. He did
have a good reason to leave but still, he could have left a note instead of
just disappearing. It would make his comeback much easier and his leaving much
forgivable. But at that moment you didn’t know what to do. Yes, you still loved
him, he still made your heart race and your whole body shiver with just one
look. Now that he was just there, you craved his touch. But you were too hurt
and you didn’t think you were ready to forgive him just yet.
“Tell me something, please”, he said trying to take your hands but you
pulled them away.
“I… I understand why you left Kai but… I can’t just forgive you right
now and just go back to being your girlfriend all over again”, you said looking
at him. “I love you. Of course I do but I still need time to heal”, you added.
“I understand…” he nodded. “Do you want me to go away?” He asked with a
hint of fear in his voice.
“I would like you to be around but…not like before, at least not for now”,
you replied. He looked a bit confused but nodded anyway. “I’m sorry”
“No! You don’t have to apologise, I’m the one who messed it up and I’m
sorry”, he said.
“Okay…” you said.
Then silent came. It was awkward and it made you want to run upstairs
and lock yourself in your bedroom for days. Eventually, you got up to put the
cup into the washing machine. When you closed it and turned around, you gasped
when you found Kai so close to you.
“I need to ask you something”, he said. You nodded, signalling him to
speak. “Can… can I, at least, kiss you?” He asked.
A kiss. Something you’ve been dreaming about for months and now he was
just there, in front of you, asking if he could kiss you. Yes, he could, you
wanted him to, but probably it wasn’t a good idea. You looked at his lips for a
moment and sighed, there was nothing you wanted more in this world than feeling
his lips once again so before you could think about it anymore you nodded your
The look in his eyes turned to surprise but then a tiny smile appeared
in his lips and he closed the distance between you two, cupping your face like
he used to do and then his lips were over yours, kissing you slowly and time
stopped. It was like he had never left. Butterflies in your stomach, shivers
down your spine and a stupid smile on your lips as you kissed him back. You would
heal, maybe it was too soon, but eventually you would be ready to be with him
again. And when the day came…it would be forever.
This spell is for protecting yourself from harmful and/or negative energies or spirits in one of your most vulnerable states; sleep. If you feel in danger of psychic attacks, unwanted Night visitors, or reoccurring nightmares (induced by an outside force or not), this works especially well. I did this spell right after banishing a spirit that gave off a terrible vibe. It would not communicate with me, and I believe it was trying to disguise itself. I wouldn’t sleep in my own bed, I was so frightened. I had did a spell to exorcise it, and cleansed my room with the smoke of white sage, too. But that isn’t really part of this, and now I’m just rambling.
Things you will need:
- White or ivory coloured candle. The colour white has properties of purification, peace, spirituality, healing, and protection. Ivory has properties of Balance, and keeping one safe from harm. (And something to light it with!)
- A small fabric pouch that closes. Sewing one yourself is an extra benefit because it really puts your energy into it. Plus you can choose associative colours of fabric.
- Agrimony: Helps build psychic/energy shield, banishes negative spirits and energies, ensures peaceful sleep, and provides protection.
- Mugwort: Encourages prophetic dreams (as well as astral projection, and lucid dreaming), and provides protection.
- Lavender: Protection, aids in sleep, purification, happiness, and love.
- Red clover: Provides protection from evil spirits.
- Amethyst: Protection, influences or clears the mind, encourages dreams. Small pieces or chips of amethyst work well for this, but you can use any size, really.
- Tigers eye: Protection and grounding. I would also recommend it to be at least somewhat of a triangular shape. (Though it doesn’t need to be!) The three points of the triangle represent mind, body, and spirit.
- Small piece of paper and a writing utensil.
If you’d like (and I do), first meditate and/or clear your mind. Imagine your aura and mind open, your body a vessel for the natural energies. Light the candle. Take Time to soak in it’s energy. Imagine the energy radiation from the flame. Put the agrimony, mugwort, lavender, jasmine, red clover, amethyst, and tigers eye in your small fabric pouch. Let yourself feel the properties of each component. I like to internally thank each plant for its aid. Next, on your paper write the following;
“In wake and close of slumber,
Banish all energies that lurk under.
And while my head shall lay to rest,
Keep all evil far from thee
In my sleep when I cannot see.”
You can really write any chant you want. This is just one that I wrote, and found worked well. Don’t be afraid to be creative and personal!
Recite the lines aloud, then fold the paper, and place it in the pouch. Close tightly so none of the contents will fall out, and place under your mattress, pillow, or near you when you go to sleep. I prefer to have it directly under my pillow. You could also sew the pouch into a pillow, or just put everything in one. Make sure to blow out your candle! (Maybe the most important step. Safety, yeah!)
Yay, I did something again! And it doesn’t look too terrible! :D (I really hope my colour settings on my monitor are all right and it doesn’t look like shit for everyone else xD) The beautiful @wiishu! I’m really proud of the hair and the background. :’D
Teach me to draw as beautiful as the way you draw please😩
long answer: I’m not sure if you are a novice or have some kind of basic drawing skills but I’ll start at the beginning.
Books, tutorials, youtube videos and video lessons, live streams even progress shots are all terribly helpful. There’s still things I use that I learned from a comic colouring video I watched 15 years ago so nothing is ever wasted. Ctrl paint has some great material on general topics and more in detail stuff. CG Cookie has great free tutorials about specific subject matters like light, colour or rendering. Tim from CG Cookie also has a weekly twitch stream which you can always watch later. He discusses his own techniques as well as coping with certain artist problems and struggles.
As for drawing itself: try to start with a decent sketch. I learned that the hard way and it really pays off in the end. But the key thing of drawing is: draw what you see. Which sounds simple enough but might be a bit difficult to wrap your head around. You’re not drawing a face, nose, eye or mouth, you’re drawing shapes. Shapes made up from smaller shapes and so forth. They just happen to end up looking like a mouth or eye. If you really simplify it you could compare it with one of those low poly drawings like this one:
It’s just a buch of triangles with different colour values, but you know it’s a face / eye/mouth. While drawing you kind of do the same but in a high poly version and you go as far with it as you like. Try to be patient, there’s no rush. I did a drawing tutorial once which explains this a bit more in detail. If you have difficulties with colour at first, try drawing in greyscale. It takes away all the problems that come with colour and lets you focus on light and dark. You can always colour it in later.
Find some brushes that feel comfortable for you. I just use some standard PS round brush, others prefer a more chalky or softer one. Just because your fav artist draws with a certain brush preset means it is magic. It might totally not work for you. Build a standard brush set you can fall back on.
Don’t get discouraged. Out of 10 drawings you will probably make 9 which you feel don’t live up to its potential. That’s ok, because that’s how you learn. Try to find out what makes you feel that way. Is it the colours / rendering / maybe everything? Take that experience to the next drawing. You might mess up again but at least you tried. Then try again. You’ll get better with every drawing.
Don’t compare yourself to other artists. It isn’t helpful and totally paralyzing. Stop it. Now. You’ll get there, it just takes time.
I hope that was somewhat helpful because I am terrible at explaining things. D:
Now go forth and make some drawings! Good luck!

CATCH FLIGHTS NOT FEELINGS
No. I’m in a weird space of wanting feelings but also not wanting to get hurt which happens too often because no-one has a crush on me.

Last song I listened to - it’s probably achilles agony and ecstasy in eight parts - manowar as i needed to descrbe a music experience for class and that was a fun one to describe Last movie I watched - A Touch of Spice which was really bittersweet it was terrible but so lovely Top three TV shows -I honestly don’t think I can list three??

1. I’m loving that I made this channel and Pepper, because it’s a lot of fun 2. I like that I’m equally good at maths and English 3. Uh, I’m happy that I’m a fast reader? 4. My eyes are a nice colour??? 5. I haven’t murdered anyone yet…
those colours.. to many colours. it was driving him mad, really. well, it was still mostly the voices doing that, but they certainly were making a point to point out the bright colours against the white snow and dark trees. why was he staring out the window in the first place? well, whatever the original reason was, he was, and he’d spotted something not from here.
he got up off the couch and walked outside to investigate, the screamed whispers earning an eye socket twitch, phalanges pulling a bit at that eye socket. so loud, so loud.. the colours were loud too.. too loud; make them go away..
❝you.. you’re not supposed to be here.. what’re you doing here with all that noise..?❞ he paused. ❝..noisy colour..❞
