when the flower blossoms

edesarts  asked:

Happy/laughing genji is my entire life tbh it just cleanses my soul. What do you think of genji taking zen on a date in japan, showing him all the sights and stuff! And genji gets all nostalgic and wistful

omg, i love you and your ideas ♥

But I drew something pretty stereotypical, sorry :”D It’s the first idea that came to my mind, while i was sitting during another boring classes

I imagine the first firework noises and in this moment, when flaming flowers blossom in the night sky, Genji tenderly kisses Zenyatta on his forehead and says something like “It is I who should thank you, master”

alrighty so last year i made a top ten fic rec of 2015 and it seemed like a lot of people enjoyed it/reblogged it/whatever so i thought i would make one for this year as well :)

so again these are my top ten fics that were published and/or completed in 2016. 

10. until the flower of this love has blossomed… | ziamslilo

“And when he kissed this boy, he knew that nothing in his life would ever compare to the way he felt when their lips first touched, the very essence of his skin burned in his memory like a lasting reminder of what he could of had, but never allowed himself to indulge in.”

9. Let’s kiss a little instead | tessalane

It’s like Liam understands every part of his soul and accepts it just as it is. It’s like Liam knows how to say and do things in order to make Zayn feel good and relaxed and calm. It’s like Liam is the perfect anchor to Zayn’s anxious, self-conscious, insecure being who always worries too much and never opens up.

He just likes Liam. A lot.

Zayn and Liam are the world’s best football players and they both play for opposite teams. Zayn had a hard time growing up and struggles a lot with anxiety and pressure problems and he hates Liam for always being cool and chill and perfect. So when the two rivals finally meet, things go down a completely different road than Zayn had expected.

8. I’ll Breathe Your Air Into My Lungs (no longer on AO3) | bythelightofthenight

It started out as a romance where opposites attract but in the making it became Zayn’s story of where he has to realize that he is the only one who can save himself.

Zayn doesn’t know what loving someone truly means. In the end it’s not about them leaving but whether they return.

7. Lose It | pineapple_tea / @weighted-orange

Curly-haired Liam is a bit nervous about his first time bottoming (especially on camera). Luckily Zayn is there to take him through it.

6. Slow and High Tempo | zipplekink / @zipplekink

“I just want you, Liam,” Zayn whispers, skating his lips across his. “Can I?”

Liam’s lips part more as Zayn’s do, exhaling slightly as Zayn’s words sink in. He doesn’t understand what they mean, but he knows he meant it when he said Zayn could have anything he wants.
His eyes flicker open to stare up at Zayn’s dark ones, filled with a warmth that seems to consume Liam as he waits for him to respond. “Yeah, babe.”

5. to the edge i’ll race you | leighbot / @iamleighbot

If, during his freshman orientation, Zayn would have been told that he’d be spending the majority of his free time at Phi Kappa Sigma during the upcoming year he would have laughed and bet all of his money against it coming true.

Or, Liam has a surprise for Zayn. It might just scare him away.

4. Pride | iwanttowriteyouafic / @iwanttowriteyouafic 

(this fic is just sooo great and angsty and smutty and perfect)

“What if you guys were to come to some sort of arrangement?” Niall said. “Just a strictly, er, business-only deal, where you’d help each other out. You’re not close enough that it’d be weird, but you’re not strangers, either, so you know he won’t take advantage of you.”

“This is a really weird conversation,” Zayn told him. “I hope you know that.”

(Or the one where Zayn and Liam strike a deal to help each other through their dirtiest nights, but Zayn’s perception of alphas may be preventing him from something purer.)

3. these thought i keep, i want to share with you | zipplekink / @zipplekink 

(if you like angst and pining then this is the fucking fic for you, man) 

“Are you going to miss me when I’m gone?” Liam asks softly, rubbing his nose gently against Zayn’s. He teases, lips hovering over his but not making contact.

“Probably not,” Zayn jokes, nudging forward but Liam pulls away.

“Yeah,” he says, voice trailing off. “Have Griff, don’t ya?”

Zayn shakes his head slightly, eyes dropping to the slight tension in Liam’s jaw. He will miss him, when Liam goes back to his hometown for the summer, but it feels as if it is something he shouldn’t share. Especially when Liam will be in Wolver-Hampton with Jade, forgetting the moments like these that Zayn can’t seem to ever stop thinking about. “Not like that. You know that.”

2. Lego House | teaandtumblr / @danosphere91

(i can’t even tell you how many times i’ve re-read this fic. i love it so unbelievably much) 

He hadn’t knocked the house down on accident, he hadn’t accidentally stepped on it. No, he’d torn it apart, sent the pieces flying. But that didn’t mean he couldn’t fix it. Or at least, didn’t mean he couldn’t try.

1. The Killing Type | protagonist_m / @protagonist-m

(surprise, surprise. this literally might be my favorite fic of all time. it’s just amazing)

Liam breathes hotly through his nose, eyes twitching shut as he squeezes a bit more on Zayn’s neck. “Do you know how dangerous what you’re doing is?”

Zayn draws in his own ragged breath. “Do you?”

Zayn is a doctoral student who goes to great lengths to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Liam is heading the biggest serial murder investigation London has seen in half a century. And before this, he’d never been sent a love note via corpse.

So there’s the list! I hope you guys enjoy/enjoyed reading these as much as i did! Happy Reading and Happy 2017!

**honorable mentions: because i loved these ones a lot too 

Viva la Vida | iambluehead

Die Young, Stay Pretty | teaandtumblr

I have waited oh, so long (please don’t tell me baby I was wrong) | ziamismyotp 

Magic!au

So Aaron Burr has the power to make plants sprout from nothing by just willing them to, or when he’s feeling strong emotions

-being in a very religious family he learns at a young age that it isn’t normal and tries to hide it in fear of being rejected or called the Devil 

-he also learns to control his emotions and never get emotionally invested in something cause wild plants start growing around him whenever he gets passionate about something and he’s so. scared. that someone will find out so it’s best to just get rid of feelings 

-but the orphan life gets lonely and when he’s alone he likes to watch flowers blossom around him or in the palm of his hands

-either he’s a florist or has lots of pots in his room and he doesn’t need to water them or anything cause he’s the one keeping them alive and healthy, but some can rot if he’s feeling really sad or depressed

-in a modern au or the canon world he meets Alexander and suddenly controlling his gift becomes harder cause the guy’s full of this restless energy and Aaron can’t help but feel things, and when they shake hands little flowers grow around his feet and either Alex notices or Aaron does his best to hide them, like his crush for the guy 

-But soon they’re in a room alone, arguing and Aaron forgets himself cause he’s never felt so irritated and alive and the room becomes filled with hundreds of different varieties of flowers, deep shades of purple, bright red, white 

-and no non no it wasn’t supposed to happen but when he meets the other’s eyes they’re filled with awe and he’s one second from being bombarded with questions and “oh my god BURR how long have you been hiding that??” and “this is amazing” and maybe it’s okay after all, even though they’re not the best of friends he doesn’t have to hide anymore because someone loves his ability

-plus, when he’s staring at Alex and thinking about how cute he is, it makes flowers appear in his hair and just. blushing nerds with flowers alright

 ( @fanciful-follies I HAD AN IDEA)

Meet the Flower Blossoms!!! (click for short captions!!)

“When the leader of the powerful Flower Blossoms, a group of magical women dedicated to protecting the earth, dies unexpectedly to save her friends, a new leader must rise to the challenge. There’s a few problems, however: not only is Ángel Alvarez a MAN, but one of the Flower Blossoms has mistaken him for the reincarnation of their lost leader-who she was also rumored to be in love with!”

my lover, he is the sun and he drowns the darkness with his light
he doesnt know it, but when he smiles, flowers blossom and grow
from inside of me and in my broken lungs they bloom
my lover is a star, a constellation of little scars and soft skin
draping himself across me and securing himself in dark warmth
that keeps me safe and lets the world fall away
putting the wings he doesnt know he has around me
soft feathers you would kill to feel brush across your face just one time
my lover, he doesnt know his fire inside him
but its that fire that keeps me alive
—  lover, another poem written for my boyfriend

:Mother of Spring: :the Abyss of Darkness:

Each year……………When summer dies.
Each year……………One last flower springs.
Each year……………It blossoms like no other flower. 
Each year……………Winter arises!

Hail! Mother of Spring!
Hail! Daughter of Fall!
Hail! Sister of Summer!


-Ulvrh

The Flowers That Be 

“No Temple made by mortal human hands can ever compare to the Temple made by the gods themselves. That building of wood and stone that houses us and that many believe conceals the great Secret Temple from prying eyes, somewhere in its heart of hearts, is but a decoy for the masses who need this simple concrete limited thing in their lives. The real Temple is the whole world, and there is nothing as divinely blessed as a blooming growing garden.” 

- Vera Nazarian

“There is no royal, flower-strewn path to success. And if there is, I have not found it. For if I have accomplished anything in life, it is because I have been willing to work hard." 

- Madam C.J. Walker 

"When the flower blossoms, the bee will come.”
- Srikumar Rao

“How many times… have you encountered the saying, ‘When the student is ready, the Master speaks?’ Do you know why that is true? The door opens inward. The Master is everywhere, but the student has to open his mind to hear the Masters Voice.

- Robert Anton Wilson, Masks of the Illuminati

Modern Worshippers: Persephone

They wear flower crowns to the graveyards and lay them on empty gravestones. Pomegranate juice flows down their mouths and in baked goods they consume like water. They fear neither the dark nor Winter; all is their Queen’s domain. When the Spring flowers bloom they adorn their alters with cherry blossoms and in the Winter they dance in the snow laughing. People say She was a victim but in reality She made a choice. Just like Her, they choose to straddle the line between the Living and the Dead.

Together they scream “All hail the Infernal Queen!”

submitting u an essay cuz i can’t tell u in essay format

ok so this is abt my magical girls, a series i’m working on currently and have no idea what the title is….anyways here’s the short, backside-of-manga-like description of the plot:

“When the leader of the powerful Flower Blossoms, a group of magical women dedicated to protecting the earth, dies unexpectedly to save her friends, a new leader must rise to the challenge. There’s a few problems, however: not only is Ángel Alvarez a MAN, but one of the Flower Blossoms has mistaken him for the reincarnation of their lost leader-who she was also rumored to be in love with!”

Ángel, obviously, is the protagonist. He’s 22 years old and looked up to the Flower Blossoms as a teenager. In the current time of the series, it’s 10 years after the Flower Blossom’s leader, Flower Blossom Violet, died horribly. So he was like 12-13 when that happened. He admired the Flower Blossoms so much he even dyed his hair dark purple to match Flower Blossom Violet. 

One day he’s walking down the street and sees a pretty ring on the ground. He picks it up and puts it on; it’s a purple flower. He hides it in his pocket tho because he’s a little embarrassed because despite liking pretty stuff he’s not used to femininity. Later in the day he’s at the bank only to fall in the middle of an unexpected bank robbery. He doesn’t know how or why, but he suddenly gets the sense to step into the fray and pull out his ring. To no one’s surprise but his, Ángel transforms into the beautiful new Flower Blossom Violet. He fights the bank robbers, captures them, and hurries off to detransform. He’s a little shocked and a little breathless from what happened, so he hurries home quickly to process what happen. 

Flash to the rest of the Flower Blossoms, who disbanded after Violet died unexpectedly (one of the Blossoms, Flower Blossom Chrysanthemum, who was rumored to have ~relations~ with Violet, was so distraught that the spirits of former Blossoms took pity on her and cast her into a deep sleep). The Flower Blossoms are alerted by the news that a new Flower Blossom has appeared, and all jump to the same conclusion: it’s the previous Violet, reincarnated! (this, however, is literally impossible, because Ángel was already alive when violet died). Chrysanthemum is woken up as well, sensing her connection with Violet. 

They all rush to meet the “new” Violet, which causes all sorts of problems for Ángel because not only is he conflicted about the whole thing because, well, he’s a GUY, but his idols seem to have mistaken him for their reincarnated leader. Things are especially heavy between him and Chrysanthemum, who is dealing with her feelings towards Violet and the reality that Ángel isn’t her. 

So Ángel not only has to deal with his responsibilities as a magical “girl”, but he is also burdened with the rest of the team’s feelings for their previous leader and disappointment at him not being her. The comic deals with lots of complicated emotional issues, abuse/toxic relationships, and gender/sexuality issues. I’m really excited abt it and i’ve been waiting forever to tell people. Watcha think, Ackee?

real question tho do u think ronan dreams up something special for adam in his new cabeswater. like, whether its a secluded little lake with trees and flowers around it where the two of them can go to be alone, or a little patch of grass that blossoms these beautiful rainbow flowers when adam passes by it, or an area where its always nighttime and he can always see the stars clearly. just something especially for adam in ronan’s new dream forest

Rrrrg this is all I can tell y'all abt the plot for now but

“When the leader of the powerful Flower Blossoms, a group of magical women dedicated to protecting the earth, dies unexpectedly to save her friends, a new leader must rise to the challenge. There’s a few problems, however: not only is Ángel Alvarez a MAN, but one of the Flower Blossoms has mistaken him for the reincarnation of their lost leader-who she was also rumored to be in love with!”
