tempered judgement with sorrow (open)

"Why now?” Serrure demanded from hir position against the doorframe. Hir green eyes were hot as zhe watched Aurelan pack up her office, hir hands knotting in hir robe. “I know you’ve been talking about it, but you didn’t give me any warning!”

"I had to send an entire class home for the first time. I think my teaching style has become flawed." Then, because that wasn’t enough for the Goddess’s spell, she added, "This doesn’t make me happy anymore, and you know how work goes. Our emotions affect the work. You’ll be good for this."

"But you’re better!" Serrure looked close to tears. "You’ve got plenty of good years left in you."

"Maybe I do, but I’ll do them at home. I’ll figure out what to do. I don’t have much of a choice." She dreaded Serrure demanding more of her, but her second in command tossed hir hands in the air and left. Now that she was alone, she was able to pack up her office more quickly. There wasn’t much, but this small space had been her solace for so many years, and she choked back tears as she exited the halls with her packages. She had no idea what to do now, and she was long since exhausted of being alone.

particles of the universe (drabble)

Aurelan dismounted Beia and left her at the front gate. “I don’t know how long I’ll be,” she whispered as she stroked the sparrow’s breast feathers. “But it shouldn’t take too long.” Beia cheeped at her, and she tickled Beia under her beak before she smoothed down her dress and walked into the Temple complex.

Nod stared up at the castle. "Is that for real?" he asked incredulously. Moonhaven was large, but this was just...ridiculous.

ivestartedtalkingtopictures:

Anna had heard that there was going to be a visitor in Arendelle. She had spent that morning getting ready. She wasn’t used to having visitors, so each one was exciting to her. She saw a stranger approach the castle and went down to greet him. “Hello!” She gave the stranger a smile. “I’m Princess Anna. You must be the visitor from Moonhaven? I guess you could be someone else coming to visit, but we are expecting someone from Moonhaven. Are you from Moonhaven?”

Nod laughed a little as he adjusted his coat. Tara had insisted on it. “Yes, I’m from Moonhaven. I’m Nod, Queen Tara’s representative. She was dealing with some dissidents when Queen Elsa was crowned, otherwise she would have sent one of us sooner.” He offered his hand. “Nice to meet you…?”

Breakfast Club Sentence Starters

We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all.
I'm doing society a favor.
You really think I give a shit?
I'll do anything sexual. I don't need a million dollars to do it either.
Do you have any idea how completely gross that is?
Have you ever done it with a normal person?
Oh, you're a tease and you know it.
You guys are putting words into my mouth.
Is that for real?
We were brainwashed.
I tortured this poor kid because I wanted him to think that I was cool.
Screws fall out all the time, the world is an imperfect place.
When you grow up, your heart dies.
Why are you being so nice to me?
Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?
Don't you want to hear my excuse?
You have problems.
Why do you have to insult everybody?
If I lose my temper you're totaled, man.
You know, I have just as many feelings as you do and it hurts so much when someone steps all over them.
Don't you ever, EVER compare yourself to me, okay? You got everything, and I got shit.
Don't you ever talk about my friends. You don't know any of my friends. You don't look at any of my friends. And you certainly wouldn't condescend to speak to any of my friends.
Isn't life swell?
You're kind of sexy when you're angry.
Being bad feels pretty good, huh?
You threatening me?
You ought to spend a little more time trying to make something of yourself and a little less time trying to impress people.
I said, leave her alone.

- What are they afraid of?

Nod’s afraid of being abandoned or left behind. He doesn’t want to be left alone.

Aurie’s terrified of being alone. Her romance (and subsequent implosion) with Ronin left her very wary of company, period, because she’d opened up to him about Issues she’d been nursing for years, and given that he essentially cut and run without warning, it left her deeply hurt and also very angry. While she’s getting along well with Crag, she’s not necessarily opening up about what hurts her the most. She’s scarred and not likely to trust easily again (not that she trusted easily in the first place).

Shaydon’s lost a child, and he has two more (who have both grown up and made something of themselves), but he fears losing them or his partners. He’s lived long enough that he’s pretty sure he can weather just about anything, but he’s not sure he could survive losing another child or his partners.

- What is one thing about them that they are most proud of?

Nod’s proud of being sober and staying that way. He’s been almost 7 months sober now, and even though he’s had the urge to drink (since he binged when he was emotionally unstable), he hasn’t given into it.

Aurie’s proud of her work. It’s been hard, and while she hates all the bullshit that comes from being Master of the Weaving Halls, she’s proud of what she’s accomplished.

Shaydon’s proud of his Queensguard. He’s raised most of them, and he knows they’re all fine, upstanding men and that’s due in no small part to his influence.

- What is one thing that they find embarrassing? (About them, others, things in general)

Nod’s embarrassed sometimes by how he curses when he’s truly pissed. He doesn’t use conventional swears like ‘fuck’ or ‘shit’, he calls someone a scum-sucking son of batshit. Then he remembers that his parents curse like that, and he’s eased.

Aurie’s embarrassed whenever someone sees her break down. She has such mastery over herself most of the time that breaking her composure because she’s so upset is something she dreads.

Shaydon’s not really embarrassed by much, but sometimes when he has to relay what his spies have told him and how they got that knowledge embarrasses him sometimes. A few of his spies are monsters, and he knows that, but he needs the information and in war, you use what tools are available to you, not the tools you wish you had.

"He did," Nod confirmed. "But Mom and Ronin were the last friends left of their circle, and once they got over things, they had a very brief romance." He shrugged. "I don’t get it. I mean, I guess it makes a weird kind of sense—he already knew about her history so she didn’t have to explain things, but…”

          “ i mean, yeah, it makes sense - kind of.
               still, that’s—— ”

a mistake? sure to lead to regret? like she has any right to say that.
she’s done her fair share of stupid things too, after all. but nod doesn’t
need to know that, and she doesn’t particularly want to voice it either.

          “ that must be really weird to think about. ”

"Oh yeah. It definitely was." He tilted his head. "So what about you? I mean, given your dad—would it be weird if he started courting someone?" He grinned at the thought of the Stomper fumbling through a declaration of love. He’d probably drop everything he got his hands on and maybe even what he wasn’t holding.
