I think a lot about how, as of the end of WiLW, Eda isn’t wearing a ring anymore bc she gives it to Lilith and ALSO how WiLW is technically the first episode we’re introduced to Raine in
And I can’t make coherent thoughts rn but I’m in conspiracy-prediction mode so like I can’t wait for the calm after everything where Raine is like permanently back in Eda’s life in season 3 and finally replaces the ring that Lilith took with… some other type of ring (of the engagement/wedding variety, perhaps?) bc I think that’ll be a really nice parallel
Like a lot of Eda’s plot in WiLW is about her reminiscing back to the past (which is why we see Raine in the first place) and it’s kind of posed as like the good old days (before she was cursed) and I just really think it’ll be neat to see her finally being with Raine in the present (like… romantically) with the curse aaaaaaagh my brain is mush and I can’t explain it properly but hopefully you understand what I mean?
Will this actually happen? Who knows?? Probably not?? All I know is that it has happened in the version of season 3 stewing in my mind so like it’s basically canon
Something’s waving in front of his face. How long has it been waving? Obviously not for very long if he is only noticing it now.
Five swats the hand away with a growl.
Klaus’ face stares down at him, contorting as his eyebrows relax, almost in slow motion. He is much too close, every crease line, every smudge, every stray hair visible in the dingy lighting.
“—was that?” Klaus asks, Five missing the first part. Five squints, attempting to decipher his words.
Something comes hurtling towards his forehead, and with a small burst of adrenaline Five manages to partially block it, heart hammering in his chest. He kicks out, nicking something big, and scrambles away before it can retaliate.
“I—hey!” Klaus exclaims.
Five blinks his eyes. Refocuses.
It’s just Klaus.
“—trying to check your temperature,” Klaus says. Five blinks again. Something is bashing into his skull like a particularly murderous jackhammer, the constant pounding squeezing his eyes into lemon juice and making his face warm. “Five?”
“I’m fine,” he grits out, clenching his teeth, as if that will do anything to stop the pain.
Five gathers the strength to glare at Klaus.
Five starts lifting himself out of the armchair, moving away from Klaus. Standing up brings a new wave of dizziness, but one that is easier to ignore. What he can’t ignore is the ceaseless stabbing that has only grown more erratic, harsher and more present then ever.
“Woah, woah, hey, where are—”
Five ignores him, stepping forward, focusing on staying upright.
The first step is like his soul has ascended from his body, like his limbs are marshmallows that he can puppeteer from above. His limbs are stuffed with static, stuffed with cotton, like a balloon without a weight attached.
He takes another step, and something pins him, grabbing his arm. Five spins around, reaction time lagging.
He’s getting slower.
That probably isn’t good.
send me a 👀 and i’ll post a snippet of art/writing that i never got around to finishing this year (r.i.p)
HI EVEN IF IT'S A ONE SHOT WOULD YOU BE SO KIND AS TO GIVE SOME CONTEXT TO YOUR MOST RECENT GRUCY FIC. HOW MANY DAYS/WEEKS/MONTHS UNTIL THEY DATE.
the blurb this ask is referencing :-)
Hopefully for such enthusiasm, I will write a continuation!! But for now, that scene is sometime in the fall for our besties Luce and Greg and they will finally get together at their last spring formal around April/May. I'm not really sure what their big dramatic moment would/will be-- maybe a Troy and Gabriella moment à la HSM3 where Lucy's already left for an internship and Greg drives hours to confront her about their feelings and take her to the formal. Or maybe I stick with inspiration from my own prom story (which is too complicated out of context) and Greg asks Lucy, but then she ends up believing that he has a secret girlfriend and starts overthinking that their date is actually just as friends. Either way, it's sure to be dramatique.
So, they got about 6.5 months or roughly 195 days to go 🤠 And I'm a slow burn kinda gal so I imagine that the first spring formal happened when they're like 14-15 (pls don't ask me what grade or if they go to school in America or England bc frankly, I have no idea) and they finally get together at 18!
i just finished s8 and i can’t stop thinking of the Dean/Sam dialogue near the very end when Sam goes:
You want to know what I confessed in there? What my greatest sin was? It was how many times I let you down. I can't do that again.
What happens when you've decided I can't be trusted again? I mean, who are you gonna turn to next time instead of me? Another angel, another -- another vampire? Do you have any idea what it feels like to watch your brother just –
I already got that Sam’s reaction to Benny at best didn’t make sense and at worst was controlling. and truly I don’t want to dislike Sam but he just keeps doing shit he’d never apologize for nor acknowledge afterwards.
and here again: it’s not even subtext or interpreting it’s Sam stating that he feels replaced by Castiel and Benny (who are Dean’s only close friends). like Dean having other people in his life is experienced as a threat, as a failure on Sam’s part. he talks about it like if there ever was a case of Dean trusting someone (heavily implied: Benny) who betrayed them afterwards, but there wasn’t. Sam literally equals Dean having other things going on in his life, other people to trust and care for, as him letting Dean down. how??
what does he think his role is? does he think he has to be Dean’s everything? I could understand such irrational thinking from Dean-I’ve-been-taught-all-my-life-my-brother’s-life-mattered-more-than-mine but Sam was able to see through the abuse and get out. he knows, he has learned as a character, that they could & should be independent.
it even makes less sense considering at the start of the season Sam’s planning to stop hunting, because he has other people in his life he trusts and cares for. but then Sam decides to stay (it’s his own choice, Dean even gives him the unsolicited green light) and asks of Dean to cut ties with Benny - who has hurt neither Dean nor Sam nor anyone since he's been back from Purgatory. it’s literally Sam isolating his brother from the other people he has in his life.
and like, yeh I get that Sam has trauma too but???? it doesn’t fit with his history. like even if it was his abandonment issues acting up, it is still not okay to expect someone to have no one else in their life besides yourself.
he’s just being controlling, whether he realizes it or not. and if he does realize it later on, good!!! but considering he still hasn’t apologized for saying to Dean’s face that John was right to do what he did, I have doubts.
Sam is projecting so much I am begging him to sit down for a day or two and to take a good look at himself.
PSA for OFH readers 👇🏻
Just to say that im going to slow down on updates for a time. I know i update slowly anyway lol but ive always tried to aim to update every two weeks or so to have some consistency, but I'm going to drop that and just update when I can for now.
Basically i have very little motivation rn but also i have a whole backlog of other stuff ive been working on that i just dont have time to do anything with when im updating OFH every other week. Like seriously i have so many things ive written that i dont have time to edit and post because those two weeks go super quick and OFH chapters take so long. And i can feel myself beginning to resent OFH for taking up all my time hence why i want to slow down on OFH for a bit to give me time to do those.
Anyway yeah i just wanted to say that so you dont think ive abandoned it if i dont update for a while! I do really like it and i want to keep it going, but to do that i have to make sure i dont burn out. I've done longfics before and its normal to have lapses in motivation especially after 40 chapters but i need to make sure i dont burn out completely hence why im stepping back now.
Also I'll keep answering your comments and yeah i know i always take a while to get to them but it might take longer because im just not in the OFH headspace right now, but i do really appreciate them so thank you 💗
I have about 8 hours to finish this project I’m working on for work and then I’m freeeeee for the weekend! (my weekend, at least lol)
My plans are to:
Clear out some of my drafts & set it all up into a queue.
Continue scanning/editing family photos my aunt sent me so I can hopefully upload most of them for the family finally.
Catch up on reading all my beautiful mutuals fics because I am SOOOO behind. 😭
