you're breaking the rules

so I’ve always sort of liked the idea that within the communion of saints there the Heavy Hitters, the Career Saints who are invoked widely and in situations of grave need—I’m talking your Catherines and Francises and Theresas, the Twelve Disciples and Michael; the Big Time Major League saints who intercede on behalf of so many, and so are always in conversation with the divine, case managers for the sick and dying and hurting and faithful of the world.

but that also means that there’s a bunch of saints hanging around who are just—minor holy women, lesser martyrs, incidental virgins, doctors of the church who never managed to find a publisher. They’re not prayed to very often, and rarely called on to manage the difficult cases; they have a lot of free time.

so what do you do, if you’re a saint with some free time on your hands? You answer all the not-quite-prayers, the “jesus, don’t turn red don’t turn red’ muttered by cab drivers and the “christ, can you just try it to see this from my point of view?” spat out by a furious girlfriend and all the “oh god please let me make this meeting in time” “please don’t let me fail” “I’m so tired I hope I can get home”

or maybe I just like the idea that every time you mutter “god, let me be okay” there’s some girl killed in 9th century for refusing to marry who falls into step beside you—and though no book or chronicle or living person remembers her name, she squints up at you and says with holy authority, “yeah, you’re going to be fine.”

//crashes in here Ok but would Hades show up kinda randomly to his fav son to give advice or something like that making everyone else gape in astonishment cus "wait gods are not supposed to do that??? you're like breaking ALL the rules???" (PJO!vld)

I gotchu buddy. Let’s do this! Because loving Hades is the best.

They were all dining at the pavilion, eating breakfast. Usually, demigods were supposed to sit in their designated tables but that would mean Keith and Shiro would be alone in their own tables. Keith didn’t care about the rules so he invites Shiro to sit with him in the Hades table.

Eating peacefully while trying to get rid of their sleepiness with Shiro nudging Keith from time to time because he looked like he was gonna pass out, suddenly dark shadows and dark smoke appeared in the center and there stood, the tall and mighty Hades in his godly form. Looking regal and ominous as ever. Everyone gasped because it was so rare for a god to visit them, much more one of the Big Three and Hades at that. Gods only appeared when something important was going to happen. So Hades being there in Camp Half Blood was SUCH A BIG DEAL.

Everyone bowed down to Lord Hades (mostly in fear because gods this was The Lord of The Underworld in their presence!) but Hades’ eyes began wandering around the area, until he spots a certain raven haired boy who had his back turned at him. Two boys completely oblivious of their surroundings. Hades crept behind them and tapped Keith. It startled the boy, making him jolt forward. 

Keith’s eyes widened in surprise. “Dad?! What are you doing here?”

“Can’t I just see how my son’s doing?” Hades smiled as he opened his arms to which Keith immediately stood up to hug his really huge Dad. 

Keith shook his head. “It’s just that, it’s too early, y’know? Don’t you have some Underworld stuff to attend to?”

Hades hummed. “That can wait. I left Alecto there to settle some stuff while I visit you.” He spotted Shiro in the table. “I’d like to borrow my son for a while if you don’t mind, Shirogane?”

“Oh! By all means, go ahead, Lord Hades.” Shiro smiled while waving both his hands in front. “It was nice to see you again.”

“You, too, my boy.” Hades nodded. He turned back to Keith, offering his hand. “Let’s go shall we?”

Keith nodded as he took his Dad’s hand and together they walked out of the pavilion. They all could see how animated Keith was talking to Hades and Hades would pat the hand of his son that he held, smiling in amusement at the updates Keith was giving him. As soon as Keith leaned his head towards Hades’ side, shadows enveloped them and the father and son disappeared.

“What the hell just happened?” Pidge asked, like everyone, she just stared at the events unfolding in front of her. She turned towards Shiro and looked at him expectantly. “What just happened?” 

Shiro looked around them and they were all staring at him. “Uh, Hades randomly visits Keith? Is that not normal?”

“No, it isn’t.” Allura spoke up as she stood up. “Gods just don’t appear in front of everyone unless something terrible is about to happen.”

“Not necessarily.”

“You seem to be acquainted with Lord Hades, son of Zeus” Allura squinted suspiciously. “What’s your deal?”

Shiro sighed. “I told you, it’s because Lord Hades had been doing that for years. He’s appeared a couple of times before Keith and I even made it here to camp. He’s pretty chill and—”

“Like I said, gods don’t do that,” Allura sneered. “None of our godly parents here have done that. Except in our dreams. The god of the Underworld is breaking a lot of rules. They are not supposed to have contact with their children. It has always been like that.”

Shiro was starting to get irritated. It was true. Hades had been visiting them for years and nothing really terrible has happened. He had even helped them sometime when they were in danger from monsters. “Has it ever occurred to you that maybe, just maybe, Keith is his only son for a while and he’d like to spend time with him?”

“Like I said, gods don’t do that. They’re not supposed to do that. Something is amiss.” Allura looked around.

“Well, Lord Hades is different!” Shiro snapped and suddenly they were all surprised that Hades materialized in front of them with Keith, causing everyone to gasp. 

Hades looked at Shiro and smirked. He let go of Keith’s hand and let him walk back towards his table. Hades placed both of his hands behind him and spoke with a looming voice, “If anyone has a problem with me visiting my son, well, I can always speed up your days when we meet in The Underworld.” 

Everyone just went white and Hades smirked. Keith rolled his eyes because Dad’s at it again. Hades turned towards him. “Goodbye, my little bat. I’ll see you again soon.” He looked at Shiro. “And you too, son of Zeus. Take good care of my little trouble maker.”

“Dad,” Keith groaned.

rant.

summer classes are mandatory for comp kids at our studio, if they are home. so unless they are on vacation, they have to show up. two nights a week. that’s it. if you don’t show up all summer, you automatically are off the team, but if you are just super flaky about it, I will remember when it comes to placing you in dances and giving you extra shit during the year.

why is it always the kids that complain about not being front center, not getting x amount of solos etc. that try to get around this in a thousand different ways?

  • INTJ: The most pretentious people you will ever meet. Also, nerds. Really really gigantic super nerds.

  • ENFP: Have worse attention spans than goldfish. Need everyone to think they're awesome and will cry if you criticize them at all.
  • ENFJ: Never ask them to make a decision because they just can't. Super exhausting because they are CONSTANTLY trying to improve something. Gross.

  • ISFJ: Disgustingly organized and dutiful. Secretly huge cry babies, but they'll never confront you if you make them upset. Never.

Bard of void lands and quests? Thanks even if you don't answer

Land Ideas:

Land of Shade and Eclipses

Land of Oblivion and Cloaks

Land of Twilight and Sepulchers

Quest:

You are the Bard of Void on your planet, the Land of Shade and Eclipses (LOSAE)

Darkness reigns supreme when you arrive on your planet. Not in any sort of edgy, grimdark way, mind you. Darkness is literally the dominant trait of this planet. You can’t see beyond the confines of your home. It’s less of just the absence of light and more of a literal vacuum devoid of all light. Even the inside of your house appears darker even though the contrast should make it feel brighter than the outside. Then something changes. The sky stops sucking up the light and actually begins to brighten. You look up and see a large, round, moon floating between your planet and the radiant Skaia. Without the drain on the planets light that the eclipse seemed to create, you can see a world of beauty ripe for adventure. However, as time passes, you can see the moon moving at a rapid rate around the planet before, after a few minutes, returning to block Skaia’s warming light. Your job is to explore your planet while avoiding the dark eclipses that ravage the Land of Shade and Eclipses.

Hello are you still taking drabble requests? If you are can I request 14 and 20 with peter maximoff (Evan peters version) please? It's ok if you're not :)

14. first kiss + 20. breaking the rules

“On your mark!” your friend, Summer, called out. “Get set!”

You gave Peter a side-glance, looking at him with determination in your eyes. You felt the adrenaline pumping through your veins. You knew that you could win, so long as he followed the rules and stuck to his word for once in his life. Peter shot a good natured grin in your direction and you rolled your eyes. Without using his super speed, he most definitely couldn’t beat you in a race. You were the fastest of all of your other friends – save for him, for obvious reasons. Now, though, you were given a chance to really show him.

“Go!” Summer shouted, and off the two of you went. The distance wasn’t that long, 100 yards at most, and you were sprinting the entire way, leaving the snarky Peter Maximoff in the dust.

“Not so fast now, are ya!?” you shouted back at him. You turned your head for a second, a measly second, only to find that he wasn’t there at all. When you snapped your head back to the finish line, you found that he was already there. “What the hell!?” you shouted at him as you crossed the line along with him. “You broke the rules!”

“Sorry,” he said, although his face showed no signs of remorse. “I can’t help it. Sometimes I just gotta go fast.”

You punched him in the arm, then, causing him to emit a small “ow!” of exclamation.

“You’re a fuckin’ jerk, you know that?” you asked him bitterly, but he kept that stupid smile on his face. “What? Care to break the rules some more, Peter?”

“Maybe,” he said, before you felt a brush across your lips and a departed Peter.

“Where did he go?” Summer asked, jogging up to you. You, however, were too flustered to answer her.

You raised a hand to your lips. Did he really just…?

You shook your head. No. Peter was just your friend, nothing more, nothing less.

“C'mon, let’s go find that shit bag,” you grumbled.
