unwake

Dragons hate their damp cold roots, as worms wallowing in muck and boring in the dirt. They try to soar and spit heat and fire to show nature and themselves that they are beyond their shameful past. But breathing fire is a painful process and flight is a tiring excersize. 

A dragon is truely in their element in the wet and the earth. Being in a burrow deep beneath rock and soil or submerged in brown muggy waters us when a worm is truely one with themself and where they want to be. Comforted in darkness and loneliness, trash piled in their lair as home decor. The grand displays and ego in their waking hours is motivated heavily by the need of an unwakeful sleep when they return to their lair, to to forget about their fear and flaws and rest soundly.

Imagine meeting the Originals-Part 14

Hi, hello, bonjour :)

Part 14

You meet with Rebeckah.

Please, note that I am French, so there might be some mistakes here and there.

Let me know what you think :) Enjoy !

(Taking place in 3x06)

Klaus was back in town. You figured he was the one who attacked you last night, that he made you tell him where to find your friends.

Bonnie told you everything. Klaus needed Elena’s blood to create hybrids. He turned Tyler into one. He made Stefan turn his humanity off. He had a sister named Rebeckah and Elena’s necklace was actually hers.

It was the first day of school, you were at the library. You worked there all summer and you had left some belongings in what used to be your office.

You received a text from Elena, Klaus was gone but he asked Stefan to “watch over” her. Also, Rebeckah was their new classmate.

Great. Klaus brought drama back in town with him.

You were in your car when you received a call from Katherine.

“I’m bored!” you hear her say.

“Hello, Katherine, I’m fine, thank you, how are you?”

“Hello, Y/N” she sighs

“What are you doing?”

“I need to wake up a vampire vampire hunter but he won’t drink any blood I’m giving him!’

“I see… That’s your plan on killing Klaus?” you ask her.

“Yope, my very much unwakable plan” she sighs

“I’m sorry, I don’t know how to help you…”

“It’s okay…So Klaus already left town?”

“How’d you hear that?” you get curious.

“Damon”

“Of course” you sigh.

“I gotto go, I have a deadly weapon to bring back to life, busy day.”

“Good luck with that, bye Kat’”

“Bye Y/N”

You were about to start your car and drive back home when your phone buzzed again. It was Caroline. Damon told her that Tyler was sired to Klaus. You didn’t really understand what that meant but apparently it meant that Tyler was working for the Original hybrid. She also invited you to this party they were going to tonight, you told her you would think about it.

You thought about it and there you were, in the woods, surrounded by drunk students.

You see a blonde sitting alone trying to roast marshmallows. You go to her.

“You’re Rebeckah?”

She looks up at you “You’re Y/N” she says

“So we have met before” you say, sitting down. Maybe she was there when Klaus attacked you, or maybe she was the one who attacked you.

“What do you want?”

You liked her accent “Nothing” you shrug “I saw you sitting here alone, wasting marshmallows…” you take her stick from her and show her how to do it.

“It’s good” she tells you, then she stares at you.

“Why are you being nice to me?” she asks you.

You shrug, “Do I need a reason to be nice to people?”

She keeps staring at you. Obviously she didn’t believe you. You sigh.

“Okay…Here’s the thing…”

“I knew it…” she says

“I just want to know if your brother’s okay…” you tell her.

She frowns, “Why do you care about Klaus?”

You shake your head “No, not Klaus, Elijah”

She stares at you “What’s your deal with my brother?”

You shake your head “I just… I’m worried, is all”

“He’s in his coffin” she tells you, looking into the fire.

You’re shocked by her answer.

“What?”

“Klaus has a coffin for each one of us…He was already daggered when I came back”

You didn’t know what to say. You had a knot in your stomach.

“Where is he?”

She turns her head to look at you, surprised.

“Let me save your life and not tell you”

You were about to try and convince her to tell you but you were interrupted by Damon.

“Hello, there” he says, smiling to Rebeckah without even acknowledging your presence which makes you frown.

“Having fun?” he asks the Original vampire.

“Why do you care?”

“Well, I thought we could talk, we should get to know one another if we’re gonna live under the same roof…”

You frown, he’s being way too nice.

“Why are you being nice to me?”

“Yeah, Damon… what are you up to?” you ask him.

He eyes you to shut up.

“I’m just being a good housemate” he shrugs. “What are you doing, Y/N? I think Bonnie is looking for you.”

You know she isn’t, Bonnie didn’t even come here tonight. You get up.

“I don’t know what you want Damon, but leave her alone” you say. She was your only chance to help Elijah.

He’s astonished by what you just said “Or, what?”

The blonde was curious onto why you were defending her. “Or I’ll kill you myself” she says. The threat didn’t even sound like one. “Go away, I want to talk to my new friend alone”.

Damon bites his lips, he’s obviously furious at you but he walks away anyway.

You sit back next to the blonde vampire.

“Why do you want Elijah back?” she asks you, an air of curiosity on her face.

“Why do you vampires always think I need a reason to do the right thing?” you say, irritated.

She looks at you for a moment.

“You’re Elena’s friend?”

You shrug “I guess, why?”

She sighs “I could use a friend” her eyes stare at the ground.

You smile. “What’s your phone number?”

“My what?”

“Your phone number…”

“I don’t know what the hell you’re talking about. What’s a phone number?”

You look at her funny then you realized. “You said Elijah was already in his coffin when you came back… Came back from…when?”

She understands your question “the 20’s” she answers.

“You’ve been dead for 90 years?” you scream, shocked.

“Don’t be so surprised, I’m the lucky one, my brothers have been in their coffin for centuries.”

You’re speechless. “How can Klaus do that to you? You’re his sister!”

“Klaus is terrified of being alone. He’d rather has us dead beside him than alive at the other side of the planet” she tells you.

Your face shows sadness and she likes your empathy.

“I’m hungry” she says.

Sadness turns into fear and she laughs. “Not for blood, dear”

“Oh” you let out a laugh, relieved. “You wanna go to the Mystic Grill?”

“As long as they have milkshakes. This beverage is almost better than blood” she tells you.

You laugh and you lead her to your car.

Once you had been served your milkshakes you start talking again.

“You don’t know where your siblings are, do you?”

She looks at you. “I do, why?”

You frown. “Then… why don’t you remove the daggers?”

She sighs. “So Klaus can dagger us all over again? It’s a bad idea.”

She’s afraid of him.

“How come Elijah is this, nice, honorable man and Klaus is just…”

“A psycho bastard?”

“Broken…I was gonna say Klaus is so broken…”

She looked surprised then smiles at you. “You’re so nice and innocent. I see why Elijah would take an interest in you.”

“You people have to stop saying that. He has not taken an interest in me. We only talked a few times…”

“A few times is all it takes” she says.

You shake your head. Your phone buzzed. It was Elena. You don’t pick up.

“It’s late, we should go…”

She seemed disappointed. “Come on, I’ll drive you back to the Salvatore’s. I’m sure Damon misses you very much.”

She laughs at your comment. “Sorry, I have somewhere else to be actually”

“Oh, okay. Well…” you take a napkin and write on it “This is my phone number. Text me when you’re equipped to live in the 21th century.” She smiles at you and take it.

You drive back home and call Elena. She tells you she’ll tell you everything tomorrow so you hang up and go to bed.

anonymous asked:

normal/romanced companions having to share a sleeping bag with the sole?

Cait - She felt awkward, though, at the same time, she appreciated the warmth on her back. She falls asleep quickly and as soon as she does, she’s almost unwakeable. She sometimes punches Sole in her sleep.

Cait (romanced) - She liked to cuddle sometime, but sometimes, she just needed to not cuddle. Just lie beside her lover and catching some sweet z’s. She’d still tangle her fingers with theirs though. 

Codsworth - He doesn’t need sleep, so her rather keeps scanning thee area for enemies, while Sole is getting their deserved rest.

Curie - She was still getting use to her new body and all the needs. Luckily for her, Sole was there to help her out, though. Falling asleep felt easier beside them as well, she knew that they had her back. And she sure had their.

Curie (romanced) - Liked to lie on her side and cuddle up to Sole, using their body as a pillow. A sleeping bag meant for one person was more than perfect for two.

Danse - Nothing too special for him. Being a soldier, he was used to sharing everything. There was never really privacy in the Brotherhood, so he felt indifferent, he’d turn his back to Sole and fall asleep withing minutes. He is quite a light sleeper, however.

Danse (romance) - He’d be the big spoon, sleeping with Sole in his arms the whole night, protecting them with his body. Sole loved it, though, such a horde of muscles Danse was, was sure giving away a great amount of warmth. Paladin Danse = perfect for nuclear winter wonderland.

Deacon - He’d sleep on his back beside Sole lying next to him, on their side. It would take him a while to fall asleep, he doesn’t need to sleep much and he doesn’t even want to, but he’d fall asleep at the end. He snores lightly.

Deacon (romance) - Sole is lying on their abdomen, their head resting on his arm, which’s forearm and hand would be placed on their neck, while he would rest his own head against their upper back. in the morning, he would freak out he can no longer feel his arm, but after a while of shaking it, the feel would come back.

Dogmeat - No problem. He lies down on his side and Sole would use him as a fluffy pillow. 

Hancock - He’d fall asleep on his back, but in his sleep, he eventually ends up hugging Sole. They didn’t mind at first, free heating, right? But Hancock is quite a snorer. Hard night for Sole, but they’d be ready the next time, with a pair of fancy ear plugs.

Hancock (romance) - They’d sleep curled together, face to face. Hancock would never think someone would be actually willing to do that, but Sole has shown him so much he thought was impossible before. They’d also get rid of his snoring a little and if he got too loud, Sole would put a palm over his mouth, until he started breathing with just his nose again. Or the hole that was once a nose.

MacCready - Falls asleep the moment his head hits the pillow. Or whatever it is he’s sleeping on. He stays in the same position the whole night, so it’s quite a pleasant rest for both him and Sole. He does talk out of his sleep, though, Sole sometimes hears him and almost burts out laughing as he says only weird things. One night, he kept repeating ‘Green cheese house’, the other night he would mumble a poem about nature and Myriam the lesbian.

MacCready (romance) - Holds onto Sole like they’re a priceless treasure. They sleep well, but are both sore in the morning. Nothing a quick jog on fresh, nuclear air can’t fix, right?

Nick Valentine - As Codsworth, he doesn’t really sleep, so he entertains himself, while hee keeps watch, going through his old cases and his notes, running some diagnostics and such. Sometimes takes a quick glance at the sleeping Sole, to see, if they’re okay.

Nick Valentine (romance) - He’d get into that bag just for their happiness and comfort. Even though he isn’t getting the normal sleep humans and gen3 synths get, he found himself a way to sort of meditate, time would fly by faster, he’d even have dreams, sometimes. Enjoys lying on his back with Sole lying on top of him, their face in the space between his neck and shoulders.

Piper - She falls asleep quick on her side , but then she’d roll on her back, throwing her limbs over Sole. She also drools a little. It takes her forever, before she fully wakes up, no one hates to leave their sleeping spot as much as her.

Piper (romance) - She’d lie flat on her stomach, Sole would rest themselves upon her. She likes to feel the even pressure on her back, it makes her feel safe and loved.

Preston Garvey - Feels a little awkward. Before Sanctuary, he made sure everyone had their own sleeping space and he’d often just lie on the floor, no matress or bag. He’d sleep on the ground now, but general insisted they share the bag. However, it wasn’t nearly as bad as he tought it would be. The warmth he felt on his back, the soft, even breathing of his friend lulling him to sleep as well.

Preston Garvey (romance) - Preston is an ultimate cuddler, sleeps face to face with sole, limbs tangled, Sole’s head huddled into his chest. They’d wake up a little stiff, but that would fade as they’re on their way to helping another settlement needing their help.

Strong - Wouldn’t fit into the bag, prefers taking the watch.

X6-88 - Doesn’t need sleep, courses were made to only look like humans. Would take a night watch.

X6-88 (romance) - He’s not very excited about the idea, but seeing Sole’s pleading eyes, makes him say yes in the end. While they are soundly sleeping in his arms, he’d try to kill the time, somehow. At the end, he uses this opportunity to carefully observe every milimiter of Sole’s face.


Last one for today :) Have a nice day, all of you, I’m going to bed :)

I wanted to write a post about Everything I Know About Solas and Mythal’s Relationship, but it turned into such a big task that it’s never going to get done, so here’s instead a post about a thing that people might have missed. Like, one of Cole’s banters with Solas is very likely about Mythal.

Keep reading

  • (Following "All New, Faded for Her")
  • Cole: Bright and brilliant, he wanders the ways, walking unwaking, searching for wisdom...
  • Solas: I do not need you to do that, Cole.
  • Cole: Your friend wanted you to be happy, even though she knew you wouldn't be.
  • Solas: (sighs) Could you...if you would remember her, could you do it as I would?
  • Cole: He comes to me as though the Fade were just another wooded path to walk without a care in search of wisdom.
  • Cole: We share the ancient mysteries, the feelings lost, forgotten dreams, unseen for ages, now beheld in wonder.
  • Cole: In his own way, he knew wisdom, as no man or spirit had before.
  • Solas: Thank you.

The Hinterlands - Dwarfson’s Pass

Saga of Tyrdda Bright-Axe, Avvar-Mother

Fourth stanza:

Tyrdda Bright-Axe, Thelm Gold-Handed, battle brought with blade and ax,
Thelm in mail and shields of silver, shining sheen to turn attacks.
Blade of dragonbone, now blooded, warrior throats wrung raw with cheers,
Tyrdda stands, her bright ax blazing, leg still weeping battle-tears.
Bright the ax of leaf-eared lover, laughing lady of the skies,
Fire flares as Thelm Gold-Handed, honey-tongued, repeats his lies.
“North to warmth, and golden cities,
Whispers speak in Dreamers’ ears!”
Silver scorched, the liar flies
On ravens’ beaks, to dream unwaking.

Translating secret elven greeting

In Trespasser, if the Inquisitor drinks from the Well of Sorrows they have the option to say a secret greeting used among Fen'Harel’s followers. This allows you to avoid fighting the spirits.

The words themselves are mostly straightforward, there’s less ambiguity than typical for elven. The grammar is atrocious however, so extracting the meaning requires more assumptions!

So here goes…

Andaran Atish'an Setheran. A'melana dirthaveran. revas vir anaris.

  • Andaran Atish'an: elven greeting for kin, the intended meaning is roughly, “dwell in peace”, or “enter in peace”.

  • Setheran: translation unknown. related to the word, “Setheneran”, the elven name for the Fade: literally “tenuous waking dream place”, while ‘ena’ means “emerge”, so it’s likely used in this word to mean “waking”. 'ena’ is omitted from the word, Thus Setheran means “tenuous dream place”, or “tenuous unwaking dream”. As the elven associate the waking dream with the Fade: the dream you can awaken from, an unwaking dream place would be somewhere you cannot awaken from, reality.

  • A’: likely a shortened version of Ar, “I”

  • melana: time

  • Dirthaveran: promise, or The Promise (as elven name for the Exalted Plains)

  • revas: freedom

  • vir: way, path

  • anaris: deconstructed from bellanaris, means “years”

Final translation: (I) come in peace (to) the unwaking realm. I (enter) time (for) the promise. (There is) freedom (along the) path of years.

Explanation

Time and aging are associated with the entropy school of magic. So we can infer that the path of years is the path of mortality. The Veil caused elves to begin aging, and the references to time and years give the impression that the followers of Fen'Harel understood the implications of his plan, and became mortal willingly.

We know that Fen'Harel sought freedom for the elves, so we can assume the meaning here is to be free from the Evanuris.

We don’t know any details about the promise, but context can guide us. In order to convince the elves to help, Solas would have needed to make a promise to them. What Solas and the ancient elves desire most of all would be an end to the war and the restoration of things after it, the return of their immortality and their empire. During the slave uprising in Tevinter, the same promise (for a homeland) is echoed. So, his promise would need to be: your home will be restored to what it once was. That promise appears to be carried on in the psyche of elven culture and their compulsive yearning for their past. The promise echoed in their songs, “We’re hiding from the fighting, dying to be”, and in the search for a final homeland. Most seem oblivious to the origin of these cultural quirks, but perhaps a few remember and wait for the time to reveal themselves…

Conflicting Banters

So I’ve been thinking recently about this banter:

Blackwall: Sera and I were just talking about you. We need you to settle a question for us.

Solas: (Sighs.) Sera’s involved? So this question will be offensive.

Blackwall: Yes, probably. Sorry.

Blackwall: You make friends with spirits in the Fade. So… um, are there any that are more than just friends?

Blackwall: If you know what I mean.

Solas: Oh, for… really?!

Blackwall: Look, it’s a natural thing to be curious about!

Solas: For a twelve-year-old!

Blackwall: It’s a simple yes or no question!

Solas: Nothing about the Fade or spirits is simple, especially not that.

Blackwall: Aha! So you do have experience in these matters!

Solas: I did not say that.

Blackwall: Don’t panic. It’ll be our little secret.

Solas: Ass.

Blackwall: Now who’s twelve?

And this one:

Iron Bull: Hey, Solas, you ever do your Fade thing and pretend you can fly?

Iron Bull: Just flap your arms and zip around in there? Then maybe bang some hot Fade ladies?

Solas: No. Such behavior attracts the attention of demons.

Iron Bull: Aww. Demons shit up everything.

This has always felt like conflicting information to me. In the first, Solas shirks around the question, but in the second he says definitively “No, I don’t bang things in the Fade.”

Why?
