    Or: 5 times Eda catches Hunter taking a nap

    Summary

    Lilith loves her family -- her whole family -- but she's been nervous about her mother meeting Hunter since the day she first realized it was inevitable, what with Eda and Raine having taken him in after the Day of Unity. After all, he still wasn't good with new people, and Gwendolyn Clawthorne could be... a lot. But nothing could have prepared her for how their first, actual family dinner would go -- or just how committed a certain teenager would be to pushing every single one of her buttons at once.

    Titan, what did she do to deserve this?

    Summary

    Scalding rain, angry demons, an evil Emperor... the Boiling Isles are a pretty dangerous place, and sometimes, bad things happen. That's why it's so important to have others to stick with, to watch out for you, bandage you up, carry you home -- and maybe heckle you a little for getting into trouble in the first place.

    (This is a collection of all my Owl House Whumptober prompt fills in one place. Whump levels vary pretty heavily from fic to fic, with appropriate content warnings at the start of each, and the strongest emphasis is honestly more on character relationships than anything else. I feel like this could just as accurately be describe as a hurt/comfort collection. Most of them are oneshots, but there are also some running storylines scattered throughout!)

    Summary

    For now we see in a mirror, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know fully even as also I was fully known. - 1 Corinthians 13:12

     

     

    Eddie Diaz learns a lot as a kid.

    Boys aren’t soft.

    Boys don’t cry.

    Boys don’t kiss boys.

    As he gets older, he realizes that everything has exceptions. Boys can be soft sometimes. Boys can cry sometimes. And some boys kiss other boys.

    But Eddie likes kissing girls. And since he likes kissing girls, that’s the end of the story.

    Isn’t it?

    [Or: the one with all the repression]

    Summary

    [Fire Lord Azulon doesn’t dance. He doesn’t dance and none of the other royals dance and none of the nobles dance, and definitely no one dances in public. Not in the Caldera.

    That doesn’t mean, sometimes, that Mama doesn’t do it. Sometimes, after a public event or celebration, when she hassles both of her children off to bed, she’ll sweep them by turn into a loose, uncoordinated waltz in the halls. Even Azula, the perfect little model of their father, gets caught up in Mama’s joyful mood to throw away her mantle of perfection and throw her hands into the air, whirling and turning like a firework. Zuko grabs onto Mama’s hands, letting her spin him around and tug him close into a hug by turns.]

    Or,

    A story told in footsteps.
