  • What is your Myers–Briggs personality type? Do you feel it does you justice? According to this website, I'm an INFP-T, also known as the Mediator. In short, they're diplomats who strive for constant improvement. People of such characteristics are described to be true idealists, always searching for the good in other people. And I truly relate to these words; a lot of my friends know that I'm always busy re-coding or rewriting the stuff I put on AS and how I always nag about things not being perfect. I'm also very shy in real life but I'm still often trying to resolve issues and keep both sides happy; I did that a lot of times on AS, too. I have a very strong relationship with my beliefs and values, so I think my type really fits me as a person.
    Is there a song that you can relate to as the years pass? Why so? Oh, this is a difficult one. If it's a song that I still appreciate ever since my childhood, it would definitely be Break by Three Days Grace. Even after many years passed, it's more or less of an anthem in regards to my battle with depression and self-esteem issues, as well as my habit of isolating myself from people. Even if life is quite shitty, I tend to try and take myself to a higher place or to crawl out from the depths of whatever depressing pit I might be stuck in. This song reminds me not to get attached to the wrong people.
    Do you have any odd quirks that are more funny than repulsive? I had to ask my boyfriend of two years to help me answer this question because I have no idea quirks I have in general. In his words, I tend to get super excited about ridiculous things, e.g. dogs, Eurovision, Harry Potter, etc., and while I'm not sure if that's a quirk, I really do tend to get hyper at times. He also said I'm unpredictable in a good way, a.k.a. tend to come up with weird ideas for activities or something else. My friends also said that I have a resting bitch face when I'm irritated that's more amusing than scary.
    What is something that people always say to you but you don't believe? I don't really believe in praise or compliments in general. But the biggest issues are usually associated with my weight, I guess? It does make me feel nice when someone says I look thinner/healthier, but when I'm looking at myself in the mirror, it never sinks in. I appreciate the person going as far as to compliment me, but I never really believe them fully.
    Is there a particular setting/trope that you absolutely love writing? At the moment, my two favourite tropes are soulmates and one fictional disease called Hanahaki. I haven't found a lot of people willing to write about the second trope with me just yet, but I'm not losing hope that one day, that fated partner will come. As for other tropes, I'm keen on assassinations as they usually have the right amount of drama and violence in them. ♥
    If you were to be an animal which would it be? I'd probably be an owl? Like, I'm not really wise or clever as these birds are portrayed to be, but some of my attributes connect with the symbolism of an owl; I usually see through lies and deceit of others and few people can manipulate me. I have a strong sense of intuition that's rarely wrong about things. Other things that connect me with owls is that I also don't sleep much at night, usually work better when it's dark and quiet and am a loner. The owl is sometimes seen as a protector and I'm definitely the angry guardian of my friends.
    If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you choose? I'd love to visit Yellowstone. I think it started out as a joke back when I used to be a little kid and played Wolf Quest, but I'd love to visit that park. But I'm also a nature-lover in general, so any regional park would do well.
    Do you take influence from the world around you? It depends on the world. I try not to get influenced by other people or my surroundings, but it tends to happen from time to time. I often rely on the judgment of others and tend to follow my friends when serious conflict arises, but if I truly disagree with them, I'll put my foot down. I don't go with the crowd when people are whining about trivial or unimportant things and that sometimes leads to me being fairly blunt and insulting people, even if that's not what I'm after. If anything, I only let the nature around me influence my writing.
    What’s your proudest writing achievement? Oh, I don't really know. It's either getting into law school and making my dad proud of me or writing my first novel back in 2017. Apart from that, I haven't really made anything big in my life and I doubt I will do anything like that anytime soon.
    Do you sometimes resurrect old characters? Definitely! They usually come with different faces and new attitudes, but the original links remain the same. I've resurrected some old characters over the time I've spent on AS and I'm always up to using them - most of my animal characters are very old and dusty from lack of use, but they're still there and I love them a lot. I don't really like creating a character for one story and nothing else.
    When you were a child what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be an archaeologist. I have very steady hands as well as a love for ancient history, specifically the one that revolves around dinosaurs, old fossils, etc. Sometimes I regret not doing what I dreamed of because I'm still interested in those things, but have to sit near my books and try to learn how to help people with their issues. Maybe once I'm old and retired.
    What are some hobbies you enjoy doing? I'm not an entirely active person, but I like taking walks in forests. I'm also keen on creative writing, reading and playing video games. Some of my odd hobbies include watching documentaries about serial killers, natural disasters, unsolved murder mysteries and anything similar. I used to love dancing and doing simple gymnastics, but ever since my weight has become a problem, I refuse to do that.
    What is one thing you recommend someone doing at least once in their life? Release your inhibitions. Get drunk to the point where you can't stand, get into a fight and come home with a bleeding lip, skip school for a few days and do whatever. We're brought up in a society of rules where everyone's expected to be good people and follow a code that our elders thought of. If such things don't go against your personal moral code, do them! As a kid, I used to have a good friend who did karate - whenever we met up, we'd spar somewhere away from home and while I got my ass kicked, it was the best time of my life. Just let go and follow your instincts for a little bit and turn off your brain. It's healthy to just be a wild animal sometimes.
    What is a piece of advice you would give to another from your own experience? It's better to do things poorly than not doing them at all. Not one of us is perfect and that's alright. It's fine not to have enough energy to shower, get breakfast and do your makeup in the morning. Washing your face is better than not taking a shower, Going out to the balcony is better than not going outside at all, drinking tea with sugar is better than not eating for the whole day. Focus on your own pace and you will succeed. And if anyone tells you otherwise, you're free to not have enough energy to care.
    What is your family background? All of the people in my family are Caucasian and our ethnical background mainly consists of Lithuanian and Polish heritage. I suppose that we're a middle-class family but it's not something that people brag about where I live. My immediate family isn't too big; just my parents, my older sister, and me. I have two grandparents who are still alive, as well as two aunts from my dad's side. In regards to education, a large part of my family consists of lawyers and economists who have an affinity for literature. They have a Master's degree in their respective fields and my grandfather has a PhD. Our inner circle is very protective of each other and we're generally people with a strong moral compass, standing up for those weaker or less socially accepted. While my grandparents and aunts tend to lean towards religion, my family isn't overly religious and we don't worship any deity. I have a deep interest and respect towards Pagan gods, but that's about it. We all also have a dark sense of humour, both because 75% of my inner family specialises in criminal justice and also because Lithuanian. Every single member of the family also speaks in three languages or more. I guess most of us also tend to lean towards a more philosophical outlook of life, but that just makes us more quirky and amusing.

I'd rather ask forgiveness
1,008 words
          • His eyes were focussed on the cabinet in front of him, a drawer pulled open to reveal part of his collection of guns and knives he had laying around. Brandon’s hand carefully moved over part of the arsenal, trying to decide what the best course of action would be. The atmosphere was somewhat tensed, no word being exchanged between himself and his owlet for quite some time. He knew what his partner was thinking, but he was waiting for her to say it aloud.

            “Did you even discuss this with King? Do you have any idea how much Sparrow will freak out if we just do this? Without any sort of warning? We can’t just go off the grid.” It was almost as if his thoughts had jinxed it, Samantha clearly stating her thoughts about this. They had figured out where Dan was being held by Tyler, and there was not much time left for them to bring the redhead’s brother back home. The last time both Brandon as Dan had met Tyler, they had remembered it for quite some time afterwards. “We do what needs to be done. This is not the time to deal with people’s feelings. Lives go before feelings. Always.” Brandon said, putting on his gloves as he was busy suiting up. “Now suit up.”

            “Hawk-“
            “That was an order, Owlet.”
            “You are not my boss.” The blonde hissed, her hand wrapping firmly around Brandon’s wrist to make the man look at her. And it was effective, even if Brandon wasn’t that easily intimidated by the girl in front of him as others may be. “But I am your mentor. You wanted to be a bird, so a bird you will be.” They hadn’t done much training yet, if any at all. But a firm look of Brandon made the blonde grumble and back off, walking back around Brandon’s hidden base as if to find the weapons she needed.

            “You are insane. You know that you are on thin ice with Sparrow. I thought you were so keen on fixing things? Well, I’m fairly certain that going in dark is exactly what she doesn’t want you to do right now.” Another glance at Sam made Brandon notice the girl had crossed her arms while watching him, almost trying to burn through him with her gaze. Sam may not like to admit it, but she could be just as stubborn as the fiery redhead he had had at his side before.

            “I know what I am doing. My methods are effective.”
            “I thought you were so keen on peace keeping? This is not going to keep the peace.”
            “It may not. But it will refrain a certain pregnant lady of getting transmitted to Ruby’s hospital wing because she is overstressing herself. But if you are fearful of fighting with your bestie once more, feel free to sit this one out.”

            “Are you calling me a coward?”
            “If that’s the way you want to take it, by all means. But please save the quarrelling for after our rescue.” He was calm as he loaded his gun, figuring that everything was ready as he turned to leave the base. Even if Sam was still busy loading things and equipping the weapons of her choice.

            “You are insane.” Sam muttered, even if it caused for Brandon for chuckle. “Insanity is the only sane reaction when dealing with an insane person. As for our Sparrow situation: I rather ask for forgiveness than permission.” Brandon said, even if it must be clear as day that it was his preferred way of dealing with things. He just did what had to be done and then gave everyone the needed time to cool down. Time was essence, patience was key.

            “Whatever.” Sam huffed, and Brandon could feel the girl rolling her eyes behind his back. Deciding against commenting on it, the man led the way out once Sam had finished loading all of her weapons. “How is your morse code going?” Brandon asked.

            “You really think I have gotten time to study that yet? With everything burning all around us?”
            “I did not. But I figured I may as well check before we head into our mission. I would hate for things to break down on miscommunication.” Brandon shrugged. “Also if you think you are being a smartass: you’re not the first attempting to give me a hard time with words.” Brandon said, heading over to his car and getting in. He watched as Sam sauntered to the other side and slid into the passenger’s seat.

            “If you prefer I can give you a hard time with my fists instead.”
            Brandon chuckled as he simply shook his head, pulling out of the parking lot to head to their destination. “I’m glad that you are so excited. But try to save that anger for either Tyler or our training tomorrow.” Brandon said, sighing as he drove down the neighbourhood. Honestly he hadn’t ever thought things would come to this. But Tyler was insane and they needed to stop him before he would actually kill Dan. Somewhere Brandon figured that the man wouldn’t, seeing as Dan has never really treated him bad, but now that Tyler had a personal vendetta against Serena, things could be changing.

            Upon arriving at the warehouse, Brandon got out of the car and turned on his com, glancing at Sam to see if she was ready. “Ready, Owlet?” he asked, a smirk curving his lips as he pulled out his gun. “Try to not get yourself killed. It’s hard to ask forgiveness when you are dead.” Sam simply said, causing for Brandon to roll his eyes. This was just another mission, even if he felt the fire burning deep inside of him. He was still reminded on a frequent basis how Tyler had messed him up with that crowbar of his. And even if Brandon had wished for things to be different: there was no other way. Some problems had only one solution, and that solution was bullet shaped.

            • What is your Myers–Briggs personality type? Do you feel it does you justice?
              INFP-T. And yeah, it suits me pretty well. I do somewhat alternate between introverted & extroverted, depending on who I'm with and how my mood/mental health is doing, but apart from that, INFP-T is a "label" I'm perfectly comfortable wearing.

              Is there a song that you can relate to as the years pass? Why so?
              Too many. Somehow, a lot of them are by The Neighbourhood? For example "How", "Afraid", and "Wires". They all just... hit very close to home. The same applies to "Hope of Morning" and "I'm Sorry About Your Parents", both by Icon for Hire. I have an entire playlist that I could list here. But the reasoning behind all of the songs on it would remain the same - they just hit very close to home in one way or another, and I'm not sure I could properly put into words at the moment. It would take a while and unearth some things I'd rather not get into right now.

              Do you have any odd quirks that are more funny than repulsive?
              I'll sometimes sleep with my legs up in the air. Like, you know, that movie girl thing where they are laying on their stomach on their bed? Usually while writing in their diary about that cute guy they made eye contact with for a second at school and are now hopelessly in love with while a voiceover plays? The thing where their legs are up and crossed and dangling around cutely? Imagine that, but my legs aren't crosses and instead just kinda... hang around in the air.

              What is something that people always say to you but you don't believe?
              Hearing the whole "It's gonna get better someday" spiel is kind of tiring to me after hearing it for almost a decade now. On good days, i'm inclined to believe them, but usually I just go "mhm, if you say so" and stew in my negativity. That being said, most of the time I also don't believe it when people tell me I look nice. Guess that's what years of bullying because of your appearance & having really bad skin does to you, huh.

              Is there a particular setting/trope that you absolutely love writing?
              For setting, high fantasy - including fandoms that have that kind of setting, like Dragon Age, The Elder Scrolls, and Lord of the Rings. As for tropes... I'm not entirely sure?

              If you were to be an animal which would it be?
              Probably something small and easily overlooked, like a sparrow.

              If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you chose?
              Ireland.

              Do you take influence from the world around you?
              Yes. Probably Definitely a bit too much at times.

              What’s your proudest writing achievement?
              I mean, I got an essay of mine published in our school magazine when I was in 1st or 2nd grade. I also wrote a small article about one of our retirement & nursing homes a few weeks back that got published in a local newspaper. Apart from that... I don't really have many writing achievements, haha. I'm probably not ambitious enough. Also not exactly confident in my writing to the point of actively trying to accomplish something cool with it.

              Do you sometimes resurrect old characters?
              Sometimes, yes. Though mostly it's just old character ideas that I turn into a similar, but also different character.

              When you were a child what did you want to be when you grew up?
              A zoo keeper, or a vet, I think. Something with animals, anyway.

              What are some hobbies you enjoy doing?
              Apart from writing and roleplaying? Playing video games. Horseback riding. Making aesthetic moodboards. Listening to music.

              What is one thing you recommend someone doing at least once in their life?
              Travel to another country.

              What is a piece of advice you would give to another from your own experience?
              It gets better someday. Some people aren't meant to be in your life forever and, while that might be pretty painful and sad, you have to let go and move on. Desperately trying to hold onto someone who clearly no longer wants to be a part of your life won't do either of you any good.

              What is your family background?
              Very white TM. Very German TM. If you ignore the fact that it was all Germany back then, I'm kind of a lowkey Slav too (Serbian, Polish, Russian). Also, if my family background includes stuff like wealth and such, I'm from a family that is lower middle class at best (read: poor as shit for the area we live in and struggling). Partly religious, partially non-religious. My father has a large family on his side, my mother doesn't. Both of my parents were married to others before meeting each other and had kids with their previous partners. The kids refuse to talk to them now. Haven't seen them in decades. Don't blame them, wish I could do the same sometimes. My mother is mentally ill, sometimes I think my father is too. Both have been physically ill/disabled in one way or another for 10+ years now too. So yeah, thanks for coming to "Necro's Garbage Family Background", tune in next time for "Necro's 10 Biggest Childhood Traumas"!

Re: AS Afflatus: Issue Twenty-One

Sun Mar 03, 2019 12:11 am

I know I need to make this prettier...


1. What is your Myers–Briggs personality type? Do you feel it does you justice?
ISFJ, and yes from what I read, it does!
2. Is there a song that you can relate to as the years pass? Why so?
wip
3. Do you have any odd quirks that are more funny than repulsive?
Apparently I dart around like a squirrel sometimes. My face tends to be very expressive and reveals what I think about things. I either nibble like a mouse or scarf things down like an orc (there IS a middle ground with careful control). I also really like cuddles and can be a smidgen clingy about it (I'm assuming that isn't repulsive because then if I DON'T try to bug my bf he seems put out lol).
4. What is something that people always say to you but you don't believe?
Hoo boy I could get really into a touchy subject about religion or politics, but in an effort to remain pleasant, I'd say when people tell me to just work harder or faster, especially when they don't even understand my job. Also when people are like "oh well I'm sure you'll find a new job soon" like um you don't know that.
5. Is there a particular setting/trope that you absolutely love writing?
Arranged marriage sort of things. Guilty pleasure. Combines drama, tension, love (unrequited or mutual), plus you can always work other things in and adapt it to various time periods, fandoms, etc. I also freaking love Potterverse. L O V E
6. If you were to be an animal which would it be?
A cat.
7. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you chose?
I really want to see Alaska and Canada. I also have a long list of places I want to see, but I'd like to start there.
8. Do you take influence from the world around you?
I mean, I think everyone does.
9. What’s your proudest writing achievement?
Hm, I've written a few papers for university I was really proud of, but as for fiction.. one time I crafted up a group roleplay complete with prophecies, bits of additional magic material in Potterverse, and I was really pleased with it.
10. Do you sometimes resurrect old characters?
A little - not SUPER old. I hope to resurrect soon.
11. When you were a child what did you want to be when you grew up?
I really wasn't sure - that just seemed like a lot to have to know already. I put teacher for lack of a better idea; I've always loved animals but knew medicine wasn't for me, so I didn't bother putting vet.
12. What are some hobbies you enjoy doing?
TRAVEL!!!!!!! Also archery, kayaking, organizing, having penpals, anything with animals.
13. What is one thing you recommend someone doing at least once in their life?
Getting out of your country. Meeting people from different backgrounds (socioeconomically, culturally, racially). Let yourself be wrong, and be wrong with grace.
14. What is a piece of advice you would give to another from your own experience?
It's okay not to have the exact same timeline as your peers, or to want exactly the same things.
15. What is your family background?
Not sure how to answer this. Middle class, comfortable, mother worked in social sciences and dad as an engineer, three brothers, Texans, reasonable people mostly, actually like each other (most of the time lol).

Afflatus: All About Me Again XD

1. What is your Myers–Briggs personality type? Do you feel it does you justice?
I am a DEFENDER (ISFJ-A). Honestly yes it does describe me. Loyal, reliable, patient, hard working, good practical skills, humble/shy, altruistic to the point that it is probably too much. Yeah this is probably me XD

2. Is there a song that you can relate to as the years pass? Why so?
Um I've never really picked just one song that I can relate to. Honestly I just relate to all music. XD

3. Do you have any odd quirks that are more funny than repulsive?
Not that I think. At least none that I can think of.

4. What is something that people always say to you but you don't believe?
People normally tell me I'm pretty and while it's kind of rude of myself to think of myself as not pretty, I don't think I'm like....super pretty or anything. I mean I love how I look in certain clothes and show off my curves and stuff, but I'm not the type of girl that wears makeup and does her hair.

5. Is there a particular setting/trope that you absolutely love writing?
Fandoms really. Anything with them I love!

6. If you were to be an animal which would it be?
CAT ANY CAT. I'M JUST A CAT. I say to my two cats staring at me.

7. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you chose?
Netherlands. I think a certain person will know why XD

8. Do you take influence from the world around you?
In a way yes. I use my experiences to help fuel my replies.

9. What’s your proudest writing achievement?
Uh, right now it's probably doing all one hundred prompts last summer.

10. Do you sometimes resurrect old characters?
No. I'm not the type of person that has a character storage or anything.

11. When you were a child what did you want to be when you grew up?
Vet because I loved animals so much.

12. What are some hobbies you enjoy doing?
Video games for sure. Reading is very high on my list as well.

13. What is one thing you recommend someone doing at least once in their life?
Just get on a plane and go somewhere. I traveled to New York with my parents and had an amazing week. Of course it was for a dance week, but we did so much fun things!

14. What is a piece of advice you would give to another from your own experience?
Don't let people tell you that you can't do something. You can do whatever you want to do.

15. What is your family background?
Uh....Irish a little bit which contributes to my red hair. Is this the background you want XD We live in the Cornhusker State so the weather here is very up and down. It's just me, my dad, my mom, and my younger sister. Oh plus our two cats.

AS Afflatus 21 Member Interview

Sun Mar 03, 2019 1:58 am

1. What is your Myers–Briggs personality type? Do you feel it does you justice?
I’ve actually never done that, so I’ll go do that as soon as I’m done with my Afflatus stuff.

edit: apparently Adventurer (ISFP-T)
I think it’s close enough.

2. Is there a song that you can relate to as the years pass? Why so?
I’m not really sure, but I have a lot of songs I love.

3. Do you have any odd quirks that are more funny than repulsive?
Not really sure; other people would probably notice quirks rather than myself. I guess I play with my hair sometimes, though.

4. What is something that people always say to you but you don't believe?
That I’m pretty...was mostly my grandma, but she doesn’t really talk to me anymore (she lives with us, but there’s reasons...)

5. Is there a particular setting/trope that you absolutely love writing?
Fandom, lol. also, animals.

6. If you were to be an animal which would it be?
Wolf or tiger, maybe horse.

7. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you chose?
Japan.

8. Do you take influence from the world around you?
Sort of? Idk

9. What’s your proudest writing achievement?
Well, I wrote a husky story but never posted it, so I’d say...Honestly, my English Rose RP with Grengirl, if that counts. I friggin love the thing.

10. Do you sometimes resurrect old characters?
Yeah.

11. When you were a child what did you want to be when you grew up?

Sun Mar 03, 2019 2:00 am

Nekomata Luca- Bed and Breakfast for Spirits

1. What is the meaning of your character's name(s)? Do you think it fits them?
Luca is a variation of Luka. Luka in Latin means light. I think it fits him.

2. What is their philosophy of life? Was it influenced by their past?
Be kind to others, do what you love. It’s actually changed now, to that.

3. What is your characters worst memory of their childhood? Why?
Being picked on by others, because he’s blind. I think it speaks for itself...Actually, nearly drowning in a hot spring bath is worse.

4. Is your character more of a submissive or dominant person in bed?
Submissive, definitely.

5. What is your character's trait that you personally relate to the most?
How he can be shy sometimes.

6. If your character had to sacrifice one friend, which friend would they sacrifice?
Uh...none. He’d sacrifice himself.

7. If your character had to protect one friend forever, which friend would they choose?
All of them...Or his friend-turned-lover, but he has two...

8. What do/did they want to be when grown up?
Nothing really. He’s not a human, and never thought about it.

9. Is there anyone in your life that gave you the inspiration / foundation for the character?
Nope.

10. What aspect of your character do you wish was true for yourself?
Bravery, despite everything.

11. What is typically the last thing on your character’s mind as they fall asleep?
Crap, can’t figure out if you mean something they think about least, or what they think of as they fall asleep...

12. In what living situation / location would your character most like to live?
He’s fine where he is. He’d rather not have to travel far, though.

13. What form of note-taking does your character prefer, such as pen, pencil, typing?
He can’t see...but writing, if someone guides him.

14. What is one memory they never want to forget?
Meeting everyone at the Inns.

15. What is one memory they’d do anything to forget?
All the bad ones...like the near-drowning, or the bullying.

AS Afflatus 21 Prompt

Sun Mar 03, 2019 2:01 am

Their love was forbidden. They lived side by side as victims of a cruel fate.

vampire and werewolf babs

warnings: Omegaverse, so sex, not doin the birth scene though; plausible character deaths (except the child or children)


Tania glanced to Clera lovingly, the wolf girl looking down shyly and trying not to think too much about the earlier conversation with her parents...She didn’t care what they said, Tania was her beloved vampire and she wouldn’t leave her behind, anymore then she’d leave behind her own brothers. That wasn’t who she was, and she knew she and Tania were destined mates. She wasn’t going to give her up, no...The Omega she wolf felt warm as the beautiful blonde vampire took her hand, cheeks heating up and tail flicking back and forth. She hadn’t hidden them this time, the ears and tail. That would have been embarrassing, but Tanis always praised her being so much cuter like this, or in her wolf form.

She smiled brightly just at that thought alone, ears perking and causing the hood to fall from her head and reveal brilliant red hair, fiery and so different from the usual gingers or those yicky carrot colored ones. She didn’t like carrot-orange red hair, but gingers were fine. She just happened to like her own color a lot better. The medium brown ears and tail matched well with her red hair and tanned skin. Tania developed a slow smirk of her lips, which slowly parted to reveal the fangs. She chuckled as she buried her face into Clera’s neck, but she wasn’t going to bite her. She just breathed in the sweet and soft scent, purring softly before pulling back. “I love you, Clera.” the blonde vampire said. “I love you, Tania.” the redhead werewolf replied.

Tania and Clera had finally decided they were going to breed, no matter what their families said. Well, here they were, Tania already half naked and stalking towards Clera. The cute redhead blushed deeply, panting already as she was in heat; they’d timed this so perfectly. She shivered as Tania finally reached the bed, the blonde slowly stripping her then crawling over top of her and kissing her neck. She moaned softly as this continued to Tania playing with and sucking on her nipples and breasts. She squealed and arched slightly a few times, as well. Tania smirked and purred, licking down her body to her belly, then down further...She licked between Clera’s legs awhile, then began to prep her. The vampire smoothly entered the werewolf girl, causing her to gasp. Tania waited a moment then began to move, purring the whole while. Clera moaned and moaned, finally arching after awhile. She cried out moments after that, cumming with Tania. Tania nuzzled her and laid still, riding it out. Afterward, she cleaned both herself And Clera up. A week or two later, it was confirmed Clera was pregnant, and both ladies were super happy.

(skip again, gotta do the tragedy part...

Clera looked from her father to her mother, then to Clera. The vampire hissed at the offending werewolves, but knew she’d be no match for them. Even so, she held Clera to her side and continued to hiss threateningly. She was so glad the little ones were safe with a half human friend...The one thing they both refused to do was allow their children to be in harm’s way, even if it meant they’d be alone until the kids grew old and passed. They didn’t mind if the kids never knew them except through story, so long as they were safe. Speaking of safety...there was none for Clera, as Mother grabbed Tania and pulled her away, forcing her to watch as Father slaughtered his only daughter...The wolves ran off to inform Tania’s mother, whom arrived an hour later and sucked her blood dry. Thus ended the love affair of a vampire and werewolf, but the bloodlines continued on in their hybrid children...

            • A love letter from Connor to his deceased partner, Natasha.
              WARNINGS: depression, mentions of death and suicidal tendencies
              ⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯
              You were my everything. Three hundred and sixty-five days have passed, but I still miss you. With all that I have left inside of my rotten, dying heart. Your departure forced me to exist in solitude as I continue to wander through a planet that whispers your name, constantly reminding me of the guilt boiling inside. It is cruel and unneeded, but it feels just. My soul calls out to you loudly, desperate to feel your gentle touch caress it once more and lift my numb being from the deepest pits of hell I've let it fall into. It's been just a year but it feels as if agonizingly long centuries have gone by, full of misery and loneliness. Nothing feels right as I'm constantly plagued by the memories of what we used to have back in the day.
Now that you're gone, I can't help it; my whole being aches for your presence, invisible claws sinking into whatever persistence I have left. And no matter what happens, that night won't disappear from my memories, always waiting until I lower my guard enough for it to resurface once more. I remember your face very clearly as it was shown on the television, your skin pale and beautiful, almost as if the dark blood on your neck was a prop. My prayers were left unanswered as I begged for the scene to be fake. But it wasn't; dark and beautiful, it smelled of metal. Everything that was inside of me until that second broke into a million shards, each of them melting into nothingness as I raced after your body, only learning the next day that your death was ruled as an unsolved homicide. It was the most excruciating agony that coursed through my veins as I stood in front of your casket, unable to contain my grief. It was unfair, it wasn't right.

Life wasn't the same after your death. I changed the most, turning into a beast that I have desperately tried to keep caged in the deepest pits of my soul. Fueled by insanity and thirst for revenge, I was locked away, forced to remain a shell of the man you used to know me as. The sun doesn't warm me as it used to and the birds don't chirp under my windows as they did in the past; the world is filled with silence and I can barely hear your voice. I lost my солнышко in the flames of hell, the person, who helped me reconnect with my ancestors, learn things about myself that I never knew before. And now that effort is useless, plaguing me as a lost lover would. I'm not expecting anything from my memories of you; I just want to see you one last time, embracing me with your gentle being. But it seems as if my dream will never come true as an impenetrable barrier separates us more than these walls keep me from the glum outside of our world.

I want to forget. Sink my nails into my head and rip out the memories that keep me from living a normal life without your ghost trailing my every step, calling out to me from the shadows. It's unbearable but it's also a part of me; something that I don't want to abandon, even if it kills me. I yearn for the bittersweet embrace of death or something that would allow me to approach you as I did all of those years ago, taking your hand in mine and running into nowhere. But I'm too tired to keep on fighting this invisible monster that has stolen your innocent appearance, guilting me into abandoning all of the things I still hold dear. I just want to lay down my head and rest, sleeping until it all fades away and I find my inner peace. Maybe it's my chance at redemption and comfort. At least, for now.

Люблю тебя всем сердцем, всей душою. Everything that I own belongs to you and that will never change. Even if these letters stop and I won't see you again, my heart belongs to you alone. But now, I'll lay my head down to rest, as crimson flowers bloom in this white room, lifting my spirit towards whatever desolated place you've run off to. It's not a goodbye, nor will it ever be an end to our love or my longing. It's a journey that will bring me back to you, my sun. Forever.
