  1. Is anyone else finding that profile pictures aren't showing up anymore?

  2. These are so lovely as per usual^^ I really love the Talia art! It comes across so ethereal
  3. And then from that drabble came the inspiration for some of the parts of this short story XD One that I did to start working on the 30 Day OTP challenge ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hand In Hand ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The drizzle of the rain as they travelled around the Peliad area had been constant for days, dreary and chilled in a way that seemed to seep right into your bones. Everyone was feeling down and listless, including the former vampire mage who was dragging himself along with the ragtag group of mortals following the Darkthrop heir. It was bad enough travelling with the absurdly happy girl and that stupid prince who followed Mel like a haunting spirit, but the sheer willpower it took not to use his magic to block it from dampening his clothes, Spook could have sworn was actually physically paining him. "Even Thais doesn't get this much rain! And we have lush forests and prospering farms!" Edward grumbled from behind, and as much as he was loathe to admit, Spook couldn't help but agree. "Stop whining already! You never had to drag yourself out in the rain, you stuck around me despite my trying to send you away so suck it up." Mel snapped from where she was walking next to Spook. He glanced over with a slight smirk, the black haired girl looked like a thundercloud walking down the path at the moment and it was wholly entertaining. He had actually found himself enjoying conversation with her more than planned, who would have guessed that despite the idiots she always seemed to surround herself with she was capable of intelligent thought. "So touchy, you know you could always ditch these losers and come with me. It'd take less time, and you wouldn't have to deal with the complainers." He offered temptingly, raising one black brow in question at her. Mel's lips twitched slightly in amusement as behind them there was an offended huff before shaking her head. "Nah, they're my losers. I'm not striking off with you Spook, as tempting as punting them into the water is sometimes..." She trailed off before falling silent as Edward and June squabbled behind them about magic versus metal. "Your loss." He snorted, glancing behind them. Ohh how his fingers itched to silence them, one quickly cast spell and they could have some peaceful cats rather than obnoxious humans. "Mel!" The little girl called. "Are we there yet?! We've been wandering for ages and I'm hungry!" And there it was, the phrase that every single adult on the face of Aia hated with every fibre of their being. "We get there...WHEN WE GET THERE and the next person with a complaint can go stick their head in swamp water!" The rage in her tone made the girl jump, and a fondly amused smile flicker across Edward's expression before the young man adopted a look not unlike a kicked puppy Spook couldn't help but snicker as Mel turned back around with a huff, but his laughter rapidly turned into a cough as a shiver wracked his body. "Damn it..." His human body was weak and susceptible to chill which apparently had set in deeper then he thought. Goddess, he hated this delicate mortal body! His coughs stopped, but with them what little neutral mood he had been in vanished as well as he continued to trudge forward. So lost in his unpleasant thoughts that he never even noticed Mel shift closer, until a slight touch on his hand jerked him back to awareness. With unusual gentleness a smaller hand slipped into his, fingers closing over his hand with sureness as she matched her steps to his without a word. Despite her own slight shivers the hand in his was warm, thawing out his chilled fingers. His eyes widened slightly despite himself, and Spook looked down at their joined hands. She never said a word, never even looked at him, but the blush made it clear she was very aware of his reactions and her actions. "Mel..." "I think that for tonight we should get a hotel, get out of the rain to dry off and sleep somewhere warm." She commented, completely ignoring him. He was silent a moment as they walked, warmth radiating from his hand still holding his. This was the plan, to win her heart, manipulate her for the orb. This was exactly what he needed, the ideal outcome so far. The goal behind the mask of a thief called Spook, the plans of the liar and mage. ...So then why was Gyendal so hyperaware of her calloused hand in his? The concern that had come through in her actions just because of him coughing stuck there in the back of his mind like a particularly difficult problem, and he looked down for a moment to study their joined hands with perplexed irritation. This Darkthrop heir was more trouble then he predicted, at every single turn. He stared straight ahead, then Gyendal slowly closed his hand around hers. He could manage this just fine, he was the Lord of Twilight.
  4. A drabble I did a while ago for a writing exercise^^ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~ ~ Gyendal should have known from the moment he started that he was playing with fire. The line between love and hate was paper thin and he knew that. The most convincing lies hold a shred of truth in them, and he should have recognized the danger the moment he was able to find a subject to connect to the Darkthrop heir with in order to win her away from her friends. But he was a fool, too proud to see reality and too confident in his abilities to recognize the warning before it was too late. Just get a little closer, he was in control he had told himself, a little closer didn't hurt anyone. A hand that fitted perfectly into his own, someone that would sit down next to him during their shift in the night watch and listen as he talked about the past before being turned he had nearly forgotten. She was rough around the edges, but he had deeply underestimated her ability to worm past the walls into the places he was forced to leave his guard down just that bit too much in order to sell this lie. Gyendal had realized his mistake too late, that day by the fire when she had curled into his side and he hadn't even registered past reaching over to wrap one arm around the young woman who had become as much a part of his daily routine as his hunting and business in Ged'ahre had once been. Then the next morning he had woken up, the black-haired thief still curled into him just as she had been the night before where he had been foolish enough to relax as part of the group, and he had fully felt the impact of what he had done. A smart man would have left that day, reevaluated the plan and found a safer way to do this. But he hadn't, he hadn't made that choice because he just couldn't seem to stop. Mel Darkthrop had taken his feet out from under him in a way no one else had and he was in too deep now to get out unscathed.
  5. Hello all!! So after a very long hiatus I'm finally back to throw around more fandom random, and I decided that since it had been over a year since I had written new content from when I vanished beginning of 2018 it might be a good idea to start a new topic to separate out the stories^^ All my old stuff is in this thread but for all my current oneshots, and soon a rewrite of the dark Mel AU ending fic Shattered Truths, you'll find all those here^^
  6. These are cute! I love the little expressions XD And I totally never thought of Gyendal and Spook being different heights so that was neat to consider!

  15. Ahh I finally had some time around school to relax and lurk online when I realized how long it's been since i lurked on the server, and even longer since I updated anything. I have stories from last December that were never posted!! shame on meeeee ;-; So here is the oneshot spam from the few stories I forgot to post over here as I proceed to hardcore lurk on the forums again~ I did this oneshot based off a couple of prompts that were posted by a blog I follow on Tumblr^^ The prompt was: - 'I accidentally admitted that I've never seen the Harry Potter movies and now you're dragging me back to your place for a marathon and I have no idea what to do' AU - 'I knew you were evil but this is a step too far! Maybe the reason that you're the bad guy is that you've never seen Harry Potter, because that's some childhood deprivation right there' AU ____________________________________________________________ A Hogwarts Christmas (AKA, you've never seen Harry Potter?!) Looking back on it, Mel really couldn't help but wonder if she had finally lost her mind. She blamed the fact that she was alone for the holidays, the strange Christmas mood combined with loneliness had forced her to take a temporary leave of her senses. After all, why else would Mel Darkthrop be sitting in her small living room, watching a movie marathon with the internationally feared super villain Lord of Twilight next to her? She glanced idly over between the small gap in the curtains, giving her the smallest view of the snow falling outside. Yes, it was most certainly the fault of the holiday spirit and that blasted snow that she was in this situation. Nearly four hours earlier: Mel did her best to juggle her bags as she fumbled in her pocket for her keys to let herself into the apartment building. The falling snow was covering her with a dusting of white and it was cold out! Her fingers had just brushed the metal of the front key when she felt her bags start to unbalance, and in her haste to catch them she lurched backwards to keep them from falling. Of course she hadn't taken into consideration how the laws of physics would in turn effect her and with a yelp she found herself tipping backwards. Before she could get very far however two large hands settled on her back, catching her mid fall before carefully putting her back upright. About to think her surprise saviour she tipped her head back, her eyes meeting forest green ones. "Oh come on! Why did it have to be you! I've avoided something like this for years, why now?!" The slight smile of thanks that Mel had been wearing vanished, replacing itself with furrowed brows as a now sulking young woman grabbed her keys and unlocked the door as a tall black haired man chuckled behind her. "Now that isn't very nice, I did help you after all." Was the singsonged reply as her unwelcome helper reached around to pull the door open and hold it for her. "A mistaken moment of kindness I'm sure. Supervillians don't usually assist people who argue with them out of the kindness of the heart." Mel pointed out dryly as she walked into the lobby, Gyendal falling into step next to her easily. "What can I say, I decided to try something new for the holidays this year." He said with a snort, Mel rolling her eyes as she headed over to the mail boxes. "Well it could be worse, last christmas you accidentally unleashed your automated minions that tried to take out the city, and the year before that..." "I've got the point, you can shut up any time." Mel smirked slightly before her expression went thoughtful. "Speaking of holidays, what are you doing here? Surely there's some sort of big bad convention somewhere." She called idly over her shoulder as she argued with the sticky key. "A convention on Christmas? Come now Mel, even we aren't that uncultured, we take the day off from villainy for Christmas." He replied, hands hanging lazily out of his coat pockets. "Terribly sorry for not knowing random facts about the life of the "bad guys"." She muttered as they started towards the elevators. "You're forgiven, not everyone can be intelligent enough to keep track of these nuances about our lives." Gyendal said calmly, smirking when Mel shot him a black look. "How about you? What's your excuse for being home over the holidays?" Mel sighed, adjusting her grip on her bags. "No family to stay with and my friends are heading to his parents in Thais for Christmas this year." She shrugged. "Look at our sad lives." Gyendal snickered, following her into the elevator. "You'll be doing whatever it is you enjoy to pass the time, and I'll most likely go through my movie collection for the day. What a holiday." "A movie marathon, now that's an idea! I think I'm in a "Christmas at Hogwarts" kind of mood." Mel said, smirking slightly. Gyendal blinked at her statement, staring at her in mild confusion. "Christmas at Hogwarts? Is this some sort of new holiday movie?" "What? No, the HP franchise hasn't released a new movie since they finished adapting the last book." Mel said, shooting him an odd look. "HP? What are you talking about, I was referring to this Hogwarts movie." Gyendal commented, not noticing of the look of shock on Mel's face. "What am I talking about? I'm talking about Harry Potter, Hogwarts is the school! How do you not know this?! Have you seriously never seen the movies?" Gyendal rolled his eyes. "Don't sound so horrified. I've simply never had the time to go through that movie series." Mel stared a moment longer before her eyes narrowed in determination and she shoved several of the bags into Gyendal's hands. "Take these for a minute." Startled, he instinctively accepted the bags just as the elevator door opened and Mel strode down the hall with her keys in one hand and the rest of her bags in the other leaving Gyendal to follow. "What in-" "Shut it and come on." Mel ordered, Gyendal sneering but going silent as she opened her apartment door and tossed her keys onto the table. "Well come in will you? Go ahead and put the bags on my kitchen counter." When he stood there staring at her incredulously at her offer Mel muttered a few choice words under her breath before grabbing his arm and yanking him inside, the door closing behind them as she set her bags out on the counter. "What in the name of the goddess has gotten into you, and why on earth are you inviting me into your home?!" Gyendal snapped, the young woman who had just dragged him inside ignoring his presence as she unpacked bags, missing his rather impressive expression of doom. "You and I are going to be doing a Harry Potter marathon, right now. You must live this childhood classic before the new year. Help me put away the food and then I will grab snacks." She stated without any room for argument, moving around the kitchen with a speed that mad her something akin to a whirlwind. "Let me get this straight, you're inviting a supervillian that could cause indescribable suffering at any moment over for a holiday movie marathon?!" Gyendal finally snapped, grabbing her arm and jerking her to a halt. "What on earth does it matter if I haven't seen Harry Potter. I don't care about the series and I have no interest in experiencing a 'childhood classic' so you might as well just let me leave now." He released Mel's arm but before he could move even a step away Mel had a death grip on his shirt and was physically dragging him into her living room as she shook her head incredulously. "I knew you were evil but this is a step too far! Maybe the reason that you're the bad guy is that you've never seen Harry Potter, because that's some childhood deprivation right there" A glance over her shoulder at her unwilling companion showed his face going comically dark at her statement, Mel pretending not to notice as she shoved him into her tiny couch and placed an abnormally large bowl of popcorn on his lap before with a few clicks and the careful placement of a DVD in the player the opening scene for the first movie began to play across the screen. "Get comfy Gyendal, because this marathon is going to carry us through the rest of Christmas Eve and well through Christmas itself." Yes she really had lost her mind, Gyendal had been right in his reaction to her clearly. ___________________________________________________________ Mel chanced a glance to her left, expecting to see glares levelled in her direction after the way she had forced this movie marathon upon him but much to her surprise she found him engrossed as the second movie played out, slightly leaning forward as he watched the screen unwaveringly. She grinned slightly, returning her own attention back to the screen as she burrowed deeper under the fluffy blanket she had retrieved for herself halfway through the first movie. If he was enjoying it she certainly wasn't about to say something, Mel counted it an accomplishment that he was enjoying the movie, maybe her idea wasn't as crazy as she had thought. ___________________________________________________________ Night had long since fallen, nothing but weak moonlight peering in through the small gap between the curtains as the third movie played. Gyendal was comfortably reclined as he watched a well timed punch play out across the screen. Much to his surprise he was actually quite enjoying the movies. When Mel had first dragged him into her apartment and forced him into this he had been positive that not only would he hate the series but this whole holiday marathon had been quite honestly one of her stupidest ideas, and that was saying something with how long they had known each other. Especially considering her "solution" for the squirrel infestation in the apartment building, no one would ever forget that disaster. A sudden thump of slight weight landing on his shoulder pulled Gyendal out of his thoughts and he jerked slightly, it took him a second to place the foreign feeling but a glance down at where a black haired head rested on his shoulder confirmed what he thought. At that exact point Gyendal found himself at a loss, what was he supposed to do with the young woman currently fast asleep on his shoulder?! They may have known each other for several years but they were hardly friends and it wasn't like he was accustom to these kinds of situations, he was a villain for goddess sake! There was a soft sleepy sigh from Mel as in her sleep she curled into him, cheek resting against his arm. He glared down at her, muttering a few unflattering words at her for putting him in this situation. A flash on the TV pulled him back to the story and after a moment of debate on whether or not to abandon Mel and return to his own apartment he heaved his own sigh and stole half the giant blanket Mel was currently bundled in before extracting his arm from between his side and Mel. He carefully draped his arm over the back of the couch, Mel shifting and settling comfortably into his side. A sense of calm and comfort overcame Gyendal as he sat there watching, warmth curled into his side and reclined back the way he was. Before he realized his own lids began to droop, and in a scene none else who knew the powerful supervillian would have believed, the great Lord of Twilight drifted off to sleep with his head resting atop Mel's. And although neither would admit it, waking up to find that they were not alone made it not so bad a Christmas after all.
