Somewhere in the southern extent of the Maresterhorn mountain range, a lone vessel slips silently through the early morning hours, rain pounding away upon her envelope. An older ship, refitted with a topside rigged balloon to replace her once state of the art internal lifting engines, years past she likely flew the livery of a now forgotten baron or small nation. But the years have been hard on her, the old girl lucky to be in a scrap yard forgotten - never to feel the wind rushing across her decks again.
Where once her appearance was heralded by the thunder of cannon fire and roar of engines, now she creeps silently into ports in the middle of the night, ferrying cargo and passengers. Still, this old lass doesn’t blame her owner, he merely scooped up a ship past it’s prime slated to be cut apart and forgotten, but she longs for adventure. Her captain is a young buck, living job to job, barely getting any sleep, and so very far from the Whitetail Woods of Equestria.
And currently asleep at the helm, the lazy git.
I’m having this odd urge to try and do one of those reader prompt based stories, in an effort to get quicker at drawing, and such. Sort of like an ask based story I guess. I dunno, if any get interested in it, I might mess with it more on here.
after they start dating otabek totally develops a fixation for yuris hands
he loves them. loves the way yuri’s long fingers feel whenever he cups otabeks face, loves the smooth way they feel against his own palm when their hands are interlaced, loves the way they look whether yuri’s wearing rings or bracelets or any shade of nail polish
he loves pressing his lips to yuri’s knuckles, or turning his head to kiss yuri’s palm whenever yuri holds his hand to his cheek, or spontaneously grabbing yuris wrist and kissing his pulse
and when he sees yuri with ice cream on the corner of his lips and grabs yuri’s hand and guides it so yuris thumb can swipe it away, and then guides his hand to his mouth and licks the ice cream off, well. he realizes that maybe he should get his fixation under control.
(or not, because yuri’s face is an adorable shade of red right now, and he would like to see it again.)

“Feeling comfortable in your own shoes. I think it’s good to be able to say to a young person that you are enough. You can improve but it doesn’t take away who you are. Some people are loud, some people are shy, it doesn’t make them any better or any less.”
“Being iconic means inspiring change. I feel my parents raised us to be thinkers and good human beings the best that they could. I didn’t want to just model for the sake of vanity, I knew that there was a bigger purpose, being able to shed light on important issues like the refugee crisis.”
