“ it’s not often we get visitors from so far afield. ” polite smile holds her lips as she keeps her focus on the other princess, hands grasped before her as they walked. “ are you enjoying the sights prevelia has to offer so far ? ” though she herself had not seen her own kingdom for many years, she still enjoyed to hear of it from others. / @sabotagcd - clarissa.

jaw clenches as she tries to rise to his sharp words , dark gaze all but glaring at her as he watches her approach . he isn’t usually so vicious with her , but it’s not like he’s been nice with with her either . he opts for silence over all else , feeling like it’s easier that way —- safer . but if she wants to start this , then so be it . stepping closer , he meets her challenging look , hands remaining clasped behind his back . “ perhaps . ” he mutters cooly , unable to figure out any other explanation for himself . nodding slowly at her words , he turns away for the briefest of moments , tongue pressing against the inside of his cheek , dark smile twisting at his lips . nothing about this is amusing , but he still can’t help himself , brows raising when he looks back at her , head tilted . “ see — ” he mutters , hands dropping back down to his sides . “ the issue here is that you think they are ours . nothing here will ever be mine , adelia . not these people , not this castle , not these traditions — not even you . ” his heart has and would always belong to limeros . or at leas that’s what he believes . “ i attend the things you request for me to be at , i give you my input when you ask for it even though you seem to despise everything that i put forwards , i go through the motions like i am supposed to as king . ” all but one , but that’s not a topic he’s willing to discuss . “ call me a child all you like , but that does not change the fact that you are the one who put us in this position for no good reason . ”
dangerous topic , dangerous territory . but he’s unable to stop himself now . “ do you really not think this kingdom would have fawned all over your rebel boy ? ” he asks . “ do you really think that they wouldn’t have accepted him as their new ruler ? i’ve seen your people , adelia . i’ve seen the way they are with you . them , watching one of their own ascend to the throne all in the manner of true love — ” words uttered sarcastically , a trace of venom behind them . “ it would have meant so much to all of them , especially after a time of war . but instead , you opted to fall back on stupid , outdated traditions that have led the two of us to complete and utter misery . ” voice raises far too much for his liking and he steps back upon realisation , a hand lifting to press against the side of his face as he turns away from her once more . “ i am trying to do what i must , adelia . i am trying . but i cannot pretend to be happy here . i can’t do that no matter how much you may need me to . ”
a frown sets across her brow at the smile against his lips, eyes narrowing as he considers her words. though she knew he could be unkind, cruelty had never been something she had concerned herself with from him. muscles tense at the words thrown at her like daggers, fingers curling against each other tightly; anchoring herself within this moment, not allowing her mind to wonder. cold expression sets across her features, though her heart hammers against her chest as he continues on. “ you do those things because i ask them of you. not because you should. you wonder why i must treat you like a child ? well, there is your answer. ” corner of her lip curls in something of a snarl, forcing down the anger that had festered within her since the very start of all of this. lips part as though to respond, only to flinch away the moment he throws jonas in her face.
jaw clenches, fire burning deep within her gaze as she allows his tirade to continue uninterrupted. “ are you finished ? ” words are dangerously quiet, voice unwavering even in the face of such cruelty. “ you are not trying in the slightest. you despise it here and you do not care who sees it. ” she hissed the words, hands dropping to her sides in tight fists. “ you DARE bring jonas into this as some weapon to pierce me with ? ” allowing a scoff to rise to her lips, shaking her head as she lets the anger consume her. “ jonas did not want to be king. a choice he was well within his rights to make considering the war and bloodshed he had been through. that we ALL had been through. out of the two of us, you were the one that wanted this magnus. you WANTED to be king. you were ready to align with the usurper when he was intent on murdering me. what changed ? did you lose someone you loved ? because i hate to break it to you magnus, but we all did. ” rage consumes her words, spitting them at him as though she were nothing more than a common rebel. she had tried to hold it back, had tried to pretend that she could do this, that she could come from a war; from fighting for her life, to being queen. “ i don’t need you to be happy. i want you to be happy. because you agreed to this. your father blessed this. whether you like it or not, this is how it is. you may wallow in your pit of misery, but i do not have the time nor the energy to hold your hand through this any longer. ”

words cause her eyes to grow cold, shoulders straightening as she let’s them hang between them for a long moment in a tense silence. she had tried to be accommodating, she had tried everything in her power to make this easy for him; something they both knew she would not have been given should it have been her in his position. she had done everything and yet still he gave her nothing but the bare minimum in return. though she attempted to keep her irritation at bay, still it bloomed within her like a poisonous rose. “ no. i am not. ” words like ice as they push past her lips, taking a step closer as she glares up to him. “ do you think i enjoy this ?asking you to do these things when you should simply do them of your own accord ? do you think it pleases me to hear you push back against every suggestion; every WORD i utter ? ” hands move to clasp before her, lips pressing together for a moment as she considers him. “ i have given you time, magnus. far too much of it if i were to listen to my advisors. but no more. you need to start becoming the king our people need. because they are OUR people now magnus. ” inhaling a deep breath, remaining rooted to the spot, gaze never leaving his. “ if you wish to continue acting like a petulant child, i will continue to treat you as such. but do not blame me for it. ”

whether it’s your warm embrace, your unwavering reliability, your smile that says “welcome back”, your motif is the home. your the equivalent to coming out of the rain to the fire on and your slippers waiting by the door. your uncanny way of making people feel alright, you’re treasured in these trying times. i respectfully request you take care of yourself, the world will never be as kind to you as you are to it. anne lammott said “lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining” and though unconventional, lighthouses are inhabited and your cup runs over with generosity. because you probably don’t hear it enough, thank you.
i’ll be mostly away from my blogs from FRIDAY 11TH - TUESDAY 15TH. i have my family visiting for the first time in almost a year ( now we’re allowed ! ) meaning i’ll be very occupied whilst they’re here. i will, however, be sporadically active on di.scord; if you would like my user please just drop me a message !

breath catches at the rise in his voice, forcing herself to stand her ground as her gaze narrows in his direction. “ no. ” jaw clenches slightly as she speaks, singular word leaving her lips forcefully. “ i will not leave. not until you explain to me why you are behaving like this. ” she’ll admit, their situation was not exactly the easiest to navigate; neither of them were happy with it, nor with the other. but it had been a necessity. for both of their kingdoms. surely he could understand that ? swallowing heavily, taking a small step closer as her gaze softens just slightly. “ i know none of this is what you wanted. i am truly sorry for bringing you such unhappiness. whilst i don’t expect you to be happy here, you should remember that we are in this together. whether either of us like it not. you can confide in me. ” gaze studies him closely, though she remains rooted to the spot.

brows arch at the other for a moment before furrowing just slightly, head tilting to the side as she attempts to understand the sentiment. “ well, if you mean that literally – that is what i am attempting to aid you with. ” words are low as she lingers within the shadows, studying the blonde for a long moment. “ you must always try to remember how important you are princess. there is a reason you are being kept alive, and that reason is your connection to your people. they look to you, they will follow your lead. ” words are hushed, just loud enough for the other to hear. “ you will lead them back to glory, you will reclaim your kingdom. but first, we need to get you out of here. and to do that, i need to know that you’re with me okay ? there is every possibility we may not make it, but i need to know you are ready to take that risk. ”

he almost wants to laugh at the prospect of her asking his thoughts on all this , but he refuses to let anything touch the deeply set scowl that’s found its way on his face . lifting his gaze to hers , he shifts his hand away from her , clasping it behind his back as he straightens his posture . “ must we have the main ceremony in prevalia ? ” he asks after some time , soft sigh passing his lips . “ i have no doubt that it would be beautiful there , ” he tries to hide the slight resentment in that word , “ but i have always envisioned my wedding being held in our temple back home . i can’t imagine it without our goddess’ blessing . ”
whilst she understood his unhappiness regarding their current situation, she couldn’t help but wish he even pretended to be slightly interested in the topic at hand. one hand lifts to press to her temple, once more swallowing down a heavy sigh at his words. “ i understand why you may not wish to hold it within my kingdom, but you must understand that as it is prevelia we both shall be ruling over – ” pausing a moment, unable now to hold back her sigh. “ it’s expected of us to hold the main event in prevelia. but if you see on the plans, there is an extended visit to limeros shortly after the union. ” both her and her advisors had tried their best to include as much of his kingdom and their traditions within the ceremony and the following events. “ perhaps we could visit one of the religious sites on our visit ? ”

he hears the whispers that come from across the castle. the way that his role as PROTECTOR could be misinterpreted by some as attempts at trying to win the princess’ hand. a peasant boy has no right. they say it. he hears it. but she, the darling princess of PREVELIA, is simply too important for him to waste silly time trying to win her hand. the best james barnes could ever have hoped for, was this. to be given the opportunity to walk pathways around a brightly lit garden with the illusion that he is simply there to protect her from whatever evils may be coming her way.
to be by her side, in whatever way, is more important than any other feeling within him.
hands behind his back, he walks by her side with the clank of the metal adorning his body. she says she’d make him smile, and his head tilts at her words. she veers and before he can open his mouth to question it, there’s a flower in her delicate hands.
a ridiculously soft smile blooms over his lips as he stops in the path and reaches to take the bloom and stick it behind his ear.
“ being with you is no trouble, your highness. ”
as with most things going on within the castle walls, the whispers of his intentions are kept far from her. though she was not completely naïve to the way other’s look at him, choosing instead to ignore it completely. they had been friends for what felt like forever now, she refused to allow others to get in the way of that. to have him here as someone she knew she could always rely on, without having to question whether he was only there because of her title ? that was something to treasure.
the sight of his smile causes her heart to stutter for a moment, though her own smile only grows as he slips the bloom behind his ear. soft gaze meets his, searching his eyes for a moment before speaking. “ you know, you don’t have to use my title. ” words are soft, lips pressing together, fingers reaching out to touch against his hand for just a second. “ especially not whilst we’re alone ! ” inhaling a breath, soft laugh escaping as her head tilts slightly to the side. “ i rather think that colour of flower suits your complexion very nicely. ” something bright shines in her eyes, leaning slightly closer. “ told you i could make you smile. ”

ADELIA + THE REBELLION. unrest grew on the horizon, in the deepest shadows of prevelia. whispers of rebellion, hushed promises of justice; of revenge for the princess and for the kingdom. and out of the shadows walked a girl. scared and grieving, but angry. a rage like nothing she had ever felt before pooling within her, turning her heart to stone and her gaze like fire. head filled with the knowledge of war, she strode into the arms of her rebellion; growing and growing though ever shielded from the eyes of the false king. the usurper.the girl, an insignia and a phrase is all it took to unite the people. to inspire them. a rebellion destined for the history books.

IF WE CAN’T LIVE TOGETHER , WE’RE GOING TO DIE ALONE .
a flight set from australia to lax crashes on an unknown island. some of the passengers die on impact, the others are left to try and find a way to survive. will they be able to work together to find a to either survive on the island or make a way off of it, or will all hell break lose, leaving every person for themselves? only time will tell.
when the guy woke up, he’d still be in her hotel room - but honestly, there wasn’t much to see. yes, it was her own private space, and she’d rather he didn’t know where it was…but she could find somewhere else. she didn’t really have any personal belongings, and hopefully he’d simply decide to get out of there. given that all of that had happened, after all, he’d probably want to regroup, maybe get some backup. that was fine by her; she didn’t exactly know how adelia had done that, but between the two of them, it seemed as if they could handle it. heading out, sarah attempted to focus on where she was intending to head, not on the person beside her. how did she explain the base she was intending to head to, without having to admit to everything? “somewhere safe. somewhere to figure out our next move. just trust me.”
attempting to steady her breathing, allowing the other to lead her away from the scene, adrenaline slowly dissipating now there was no immediate threats. glancing across now to her friend. “ alright. somewhere safe. super specific. ” perhaps it was a badly timed joke, but she simply couldn’t help calling the other on it. “ obviously i trust you. and i hope you’re not some – shady criminal person. ” soft laugh escapes now at that, focusing back on their surroundings. “ i’d like to think i know you well enough to know that i can trust you. ” shoulders lift in a shrug, risking a glance back to the hotel. “ really could have done with that coffee though. ” lips pull into a light smile, attempting to lighten to tense atmosphere between them.

“ i know it sounds a little boring, but i would still love for you to be there. ” smile is given to her friend, brows lifting as she settles, cross legged in her seat. “ i know the museum world can be a little – stuffy, but there’s going to be some really interesting people there ! i’m sure they’d love to meet you, and you’d be really helping me out. ” sentence trails off, wide gaze fixed on sarah. / @brokenspy

wide gaze focuses on the other princess, one finger lifting to press to her own lips in the hopes the other would understand. a moment passes, the footsteps now moving on down the hallway, enabling her to breathe again. “ alright look. i have a plan okay ? but i need to know if you’re going to trust me. ” words are whispered softly, stepping around the other to press closer to the closed door. “ because this could get – messy. ” / @goldenreign
