    Summary

    This is a long-form experiment inspired by @drarrymicrofic on Tumblr, where prompts are posted like daily challenges as a way to warm up the writing muscles; three times a week, I’ll be challenging myself with quick exercises and bouts of writing. Where the word count could be anything, the ratings moreso, and as a way to experiment and keep myself on my toes. You’re free to join me on this journey as I’m tackling through the prompts and if you do, I’d love to read how you fulfilled one of the challenges!

    Summary

    A lot of things might be different now, but Touya is going to kick and scream and ruin his old man’s life - even if he has to do it as his little brother. If Todoroki Enji wants to grow the baby saplings of his ambition into gargantuan trees of his legacy, then instead of trying to raise kids with killer quirks, he should buy a shovel and get diggin’.

    Also, maybe he’ll stop some baddies along the way or something. Who knows. Does it count as revenge if you’re fighting your old enemies in a new body?

    Summary

    The thing about using tragedies to describe your relationship with a god is that it's not always going to be correct.

    Summary

    He's a cherry tree urging itself to bloom in the midst of winter, only to watch his colors fade underneath black snow.

    ***

    Summary

    The tsunami in his head is churning, and now it wont stop, harsh waves crashing against his brain and putting a dense fog over his senses. One failed toss shouldn’t cause intense twists in his stomach, shouldn't send little hurricanes twisting under the surface of his skin, dense spirals leaving goosebumps in their wake. His internal storm soon comes to a stop, though, when sea-foam green eyes meet his from across the field.

    Or; George is enamored by his marching band’s snare captain - and now his soon-to-be duet partner.

    Summary

    There’s nothing wrong with George. Everyone tells him so. But nobody has ever known anything because if nothing was wrong with George, he wouldn’t be suffering the way he is, rosary around his neck more like a collar or a rope, tying him to a lady he can’t love and a man he’s not allowed to love.

    George’s God is a lover of purity, and he forgives him. George’s lover is purity incarnate, and she loves him sweeter than he deserves. George’s guilty pleasure has eyes the color of ivy and damnation and apples that fall from trees too early.

    Come Sunday, George will be gone, gone, gone.

    Summary

    John Doe has spent his entire life dividing himself between who he is now and who he just was. Compartmentalize the grief, the trauma, the pain, and let it be someone else's problem in your head. You're not a new person now, of course, that couldn't possibly happen for you. Just shove it all aside and leave it alone, no matter how it might scar you on the inside. It must become part of the abstract, the nameless, thoughtless way of who you really are.

    You've buried a lot down there, John. Something's gotta give. Or do you not want to be John Doe for real, without hesitation, without remorse, without question?

     

    Inspired by a picture made by thinmintssss.

    Summary

    Trapped birds sing of freedom in flight, bright skies, a dream of castles in the clouds high.

    Nothing to loose other than chains weighing down their wings.

    -

    The story of a young bard willing to scream louder than the roaring storms, scream until his voice would be no more, but he will be heard, he swears to himself and the god of gales.

    Summary

    Leshawna can smell her scent every step she takes, burnt leaves and sulphur, and cinnamon rolls from Henrietta's Pine Bakery. She will leave her, she won't leave her, she will call her as soon as she's home.
    Or: the pain of being gal pals with the one you love.

    Summary

    Ignatz blinked.

    It wasn’t right.

    The color he made wasn’t Sylvain’s hair. It was some bastard stygian red instead, not quite volatile enough to inspire equal parts nonchalance and smoldering rage. It was the wrong hue. It wasn’t Sylvain. It was wrong, and Ignatz’s color vision was never wrong the first time.

    Summary

    Harry dares to look down at the petal. It looks like someone tore apart his heart and splatted the blood across the pristine white bedsheets of Madam Pomfrey's. It looks like his childhood of scraped knees of split life. Of a feeling like a ghost afraid of the light anytime Aunt Petunia spoke his name. Of abuse. This petal of striped carnation looks like eyes of cognac in blood belonging to a pale man.

    Summary

    Being a stuck up bitch wasn't all that Fugo could be, and as such he could also take part into... other interests. Maybe relatively less orthodox ones, but nonetheless interesting.

    Oh, and also Narancia is there, may he want it or not.

    Summary

    Everyone had a smile that befitted their character — whether wide, narrow, a bit or a lot of teeth, strained, natural, crooked or straight, dimpled, no-dimples, and a whole host of other things like toppings to choose from when you acknowledged with your lips. That of all the accessories one could wear, none were as versatile as the one found there. And while he knew this as a truth and could garner from a stare, he couldn’t help but be surprised and enamored with what he had here.

    This smile, this grin and all its glory back at him when Tom spotted it by chance and Harry — he was a gift.
