you are everything i aspire to be.
you’re living because you got this one chance and you don’t want to
waste it. i want you to know, you are wonderful. you might doubt
yourself, but know, you’re an enigma and it hurts to look at you because
you’re destined to shine in ways no one has thought of.

“I’m at least ninety percent sure most of the stories told in Kalos about Xerneas and Yveltal have subtle and not so subtle romantic undertones.”

There’s a long drawn out sigh as his gaze looks over to the water on the horizon. Of course this was happening but would Jasmine really be that thrilled to see him? She’d always ask him for Electric type assistance which he was happy to provide but that didn’t mean she wanted to see him otherwise, “You’re pushing me right into the ocean between us. Fine I’ll head over tomorrow but for Amphy.“ a lie as he’s curious to Jasmine’s thoughts on all this.
“Yaaaay- let me know how it goes!” Serena resisted the urge to pass him a knowing glance and lift a brow, knowing full well that seeing Amphy was just part of his reason for visiting. She felt like she had pushed him enough, not wanting to become too overbearing. For now, she was just pleased that he agreed to take a trip to Olivine, and she couldn’t wait to hear about it.
“Are you trying to hook us up or something?“ it wasn’t as if he didn’t think Jasmine wasn’t worth it by any means but to consider making someone deal with him as a constant? A hum as he’s not really sure about of this, “I guess you’re right but even if I missed the chance it’s not like she doesn’t have my number should something come up. Then again I haven’t seen Amphy in a while perhaps it is a good time to go say hello.“
“Maaaaybe. Maybe I’m just trying to give you a not so gentle shove in that direction-” Serena admits, knowing full well Volkner saw right through her. After actually meeting Jasmine, even before knowing she knew Volkner, Serena had really liked the steel Gym Leader. They seemed like they’d be a good pair, at least that was what her heart was telling her. “There’s no better time than the present! I’m sure both her and Amphy would love to see you.”
“Cute? I’m not following. It’s great for tourists I guess but this is beyond me.“ what’s she even on about? Maybe it’s because he lives here he doesn’t get it. At least her time span is decent he supposes, “Hmm if challengers are as slow as they are but then again it’s not as if many make it this far as is. I do admit Johto’s lighthouse is nice to look out from but I can do that here too.“
“… Seriously? It’s cute for you guys!” Serena said with a faux exasperated tone. Maybe since Volkner lived here, he didn’t share the same vision as her. Nothing screamed romantic to her more than a picnic on the beach, viewing the sunset, and then stargazing with someone else. “Exactly! A lot of people don’t even make it to you, so it’s a perfect time to go visit!! Olivine is super nice in the summer, you should go! What if it’s your only chance to visit for the next few months?”
“For the last time I don’t know when Jasmine is visiting again why are you so focused on this? We’re busy people and how often do you think friends visit exactly?“
“Because it’s cute? And Sunyshore is the perfect city for romance, with all of the sprawling beaches and ocean sunset views!” Yes, she’s in annoying little sister mode. “Well- I don’t know? Once every couple months maybe? Especially since Johto and Sinnoh aren’t too far off from each other.”
“In short, it’s in your best interest not to try and wrong me or the people I care about. It would be a shame to have a multi-generational curse put on your and your family, wouldn’t it?”
#🌹 icy veins‚ warm heart | genshin impact. #🌹 merlin. #honestly this goes for main verse too #he;ll put a fucked up little wizard curse on you if you fuck around #he has cursed countless fatui members and tenryou commission people and shows no signs of stopping
Oh. He supposed he wouldn’t need to ask if she would be fine on her own, though he can’t hide a look of surprise that she asked to come along to chase down a deadly dragon. “…I could use an extra hand in looking around up here, it’s hard to be sure I’m seeing all the clues to something huge when I’m here on my own,” he explains. “So… if you’re sure, then I wouldn’t be opposed to that at all.” It’d been a long time since he’d actually had a companion to his travels, it’d be strange but… honestly he was also looking forward to it. When was the last time that thought had come up in his mind?
“Just know that you don’t need to stick around if you get sick of the cold, or don’t want to deal with the dragon. But… I know Gleam and I would be glad to have you and Rose along for the walk through Dragonspine.” He smiles sincerely, and no matter if she only stayed for a short period of time, it’d be nice while it lasted. Something of a warm moment despite the freezing temperatures of the land itself.
“I’d like to know why the Fatui are so interested in this dragon too,” he hums. “If they’re still around they’re somewhere between running and hiding, and attempting to find the same beast as us. No matter what they have in mind though, I doubt it’s at all a good thing. Especially not with the mess they brought to Mondstadt not too long ago.”
While Red explained, Gleam did pipe up when he heard his name… but for the most part he was preoccupied with his fellow seelie, playfully bumping back and floating in circles around Rose. Maybe all that was all well and interesting, but in his mind Rose was muuuch more important than some weird dragon!
Serena nodded in response, a smile on her face. “I’m sure! Sometimes having a second pair of eyes helps things a lot.” Maybe her elemental sight would come in handy here too. Even if this was something that would likely be dangerous, what adventure wasn’t? At least she didn’t seem off-put about the prospect.
“So far I think I’m doing okay in the cold all things considered. It helps that you can light all the torches around for warmth.” This level of cold was different from the cold of her cryo powers, and it was taking her a bit more time to acclimate to it unlike the cold of Snezhnaya. “Once I get my sights set on something, I don’t give up on it, so you guys are pretty much stuck with us. I prefer to be called tenacious over stubborn, by the way.” Serena joked, laughing soon after.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if they were trying to lay low while gathering information. The last thing they want is to attract any more attention, I imagine, even if people don’t come to this mountain very often.” Serena messed with some of the fur on her coat absentmindedly. “What do you know so far about this dragon? Do you know if it has a particular energy or anything like that?” She asked, wondering if perhaps the Fatui wanted to capture this dragon and use it for something. The million mora question was for what, however.
While the two adventurers were talking, Rose was still more interested in the other seelie still, seemingly excited by the news of Serena intending to stay on this little trip of hers. That meant she’d get to spend more time with Gleam, which was a win in her book! The pink seelie would bump him back, similar to how people would gently bump foreheads together, before spinning in circles. Honestly, she didn’t care about some strange dragon at all right now. Until said dragon showed up, hanging out with Gleam was her number one priority.

At times, when everyone was asleep, Joyeuse would sit at the edge of the camp and keep watch. It was always more interesting when they camped out in a higher altitude, allowing her to look out far into the distance. Tonight was one of those nights. It was clear, letting her see for miles. Violet eyes were fixated on a camp of Fatui skirmishers, thankfully far away so there was no worry of an ambush. It was strange, watching them. They didn’t seem to interact with one another, nor did they seem to sleep. Night had fallen hours ago, yet they stood in the same position, steadfast.
It was almost as if they weren’t human. Maybe once, but they had been stripped of that humanity to become fighting machines. Their sole purpose now to live and die for the Tsaritsa. It was unsettling to her to think that people would throw away their freedom like that, and it was more unsettling to know that someone was behind the war machines they rest in.
#🌹 icy veins‚ warm heart | genshin impact. #🌹 joyeuse. #me pointing at elliot: he made those war machine suits with dottore :) #ive just been thinking abt the skirmishers a lot like. they rly are just dudes in suits #but i feel like the suits just rly fuck w ppl. throw away ur humanity for the cryo archon it's fine!! #i wanted an excuse to write her more also so. shh.
like in main verse, joyeuse is also very protective of serena in genshin verse. she’s been traveling with serena for over 5 years now, and they’ve developed a good friendship with one another. at first, joyeuse was simply upholding her end of the deal, but the more time they spent together and talked together, serena genuinely grew on joyeuse. something that she did out of duty soon became out of friendship. she doesnt want to let serena down, and she certainly doesnt want to disappoint yveltal either, so she may be a bit too overprotective at times.
#🌹 icy veins‚ warm heart | genshin impact. #🌹 joyeuse. #imagine someone thinking they have serena on the ropes and then here comes a sword slashing at them #out of nowhere. serena isnt even touching it
thanks to reo’s help we’ve brainstormed a good way to put joyeuse into serena’s genshin verse…. basically she was a soldier and died during the archon wars, and she was unjustly killed. as a result she wasn’t able to move on, her spirit left feeling bitter and angry, so she wandered for thousands of years until yveltal found her and made a deal with her.
he wants to keep serena safe and protect her, but he’s worried that outright being near her will land her in hot water since he’s a god that should not be alive. he’s not worried about her jeopardizing his and xerneas’ safety, rather the other way around. so the deal was was that her spirit would go into a sword and she’d be able to watch over serena, and in exchange, he obviously wouldn’t send joyeuse to the afterlife with unfinished business.
she agreed to this and possessed the sword, which yveltal placed strategically in a place he knew serena would visit. and of course, she took the sword, and somehow wasnt as shocked as youd think she’d be when it talked to her. serena doesn’t use the sword in combat, preferring to use her deathmatch polearm as it was what she trained with for years. joyeuse can leave the sword and temporarily possess the polearm for a time, empowering it and making the blows much stronger. she can also emerge from the sword in a ghostly form for conversation, but can’t be interacted with physically. joyeuse can actually move independently in the sword as well, hovering and floating, moving to intercept attacks or to swipe at/stab enemies. serena can’t infuse her cryo element with joyeuse however, so the damage joyeuse deals is just raw physical damage.
#🌹 icy veins‚ warm heart | genshin impact. #🌹 joyeuse. #festering desire gave me the biggest joyeuse vibes out of the swords #the purple mainly :) #serena picking up the sword: oh cool #joyeuse: hi#serena: #serena: you know. this isnt the weirdest thing to happen to me
Joyeuse wanted to chide Olympe as usual, prod her as to why she hadn’t moved on yet. They always ribbed each other, even in death, but she found herself pausing.
After all, she remained on this earth for over three thousand years. Joyuese hadn’t moved on either, she waited, and waited, as days turned to years, and then to centuries. The world around her changed, and she was witness to it all, and yet, she waited for nothing. In the past, nothing tied her to the world of the living. She could have left at any point, but she didn’t. And now, in the present, she had much more to stay here for. The only difference was her spirit possessed a sword, and Olympe wasn’t able to be perceived.
What a lonely existence, Joyeuse would think, violet eyes staring off into the distance.
#🌹 joyeuse. #🌹 status. #im suddenly in a joyeuse mood 🥺 i love her
It wasn’t fair, how you died.
Everyone knows it wasn’t fair. Maybe it was abrupt, or unjust, or just
some freak occurrence with one-in-a-million odds. Either way, you
weren’t ready to go, and you’re understandably hurt. So now you linger
in a place of comfort. Your childhood home, your bedroom, the park you
walked your dog in, the church you went to; somewhere of personal
importance to you. The problem is, you lash out at anyone who invades
your comfort area. You chase away people who encroach on your territory
before you even know why they’re there, and you get angry if they come
back. What happened to you was terrible, but not everyone wants to hurt
you. Remember that people who come into your comfort area may be trying
to help you, and try not to immediately respond by isolating yourself.
#🌹 olympe. #me remembering she's technically a ghost now so i can d othis for her..... #and 🥺 #she definitely associates serena as a person of comfort at least #and i imagine she would try to lash out at anyone who threatens serena. idk how much she can do as a ghost or w aura stuff??? HM. #i should think abt that a bit honestly
It’s a skill, to look inside
yourself, one you have mastered. The endless corridors and shifting
thoughts are mapped to very carefully. This all takes time, of course.
And those twisting hallways are so very difficult to map. It would be so
easy to get lost. You know this space so well. Wouldn’t it be a lovely
place to stay? So well-known and comforting. Why go back? How nice, how
easy, to dissolve, to hide from the rest of the world and all the people
in it. Why bother, when you are so good at looking inside yourself.
Like enlightenment, the self. Retreating this far inwards is like
retreating just as far out, into the vast ether. So comforting.
The thing that was you looks at the thing that was the old woman. There
is no you anymore. Goodbye.
also for my genshin moots here’s my uid if you wanna add me!! :)
#🌹 ooc. #if u ever need help farming weapon/character ascension mats or artifacts or w/e just holler at me on discord #i spent a good hour and a half last night helping a friend farm stuff n it was so fun....
You’re the ghost who has seen it
all before. You know when someone is making a mistake, or entering a
dangerous situation, and you’re trying to prevent them from ending up
like you. You might even resort to violence against someone you perceive
as a threat. You’re not doing the wrong thing per se, and your goal is
admirable, but sometimes the people you’re protecting don’t understand
or appreciate your intervention. Just remember that protecting can come
across like controlling if you’re not careful, and you might
accidentally push people away. There is a difference between being in
their corner, and trying to make their decisions for them.
Whatever happened to you, trapped
you. You are stuck in an endless loop of your life and death, replaying
what happened over and over again. No one knows why you’re doing that,
and most people are too afraid to ask. Maybe you’re trying to see if
something could have been changed, if you could have done something
differently. You’re so obsessed with trying to rework the events, you
may not even realize you’re dead. People who love you might drift away
without you noticing. If someone reaches out to you, listen to them.
They might be trying to help you find peace. The past is unchangeable.
What happened to you was terrible, but there’s nothing you can do now
but move forward. Allow your loved ones to help you, if you need it,
rather than trying to work things out all by yourself. Try not to linger
on what you can’t change.
#🌹 musings. #oh fuck :( #this hurts but.... accurate
A majority of pokemon that Serena rehabilitates are ghost and dark-type pokemon. Fortunately, while she does bond/connect with relative ease with all pokemon, ghost and dark-types really take a special shine to her (along with fairy too!). These are often wild pokemon that are injured due to the hatred of other people, those who demonize those types of pokemon for being ‘evil’. The injuries they sustain either range from mild to serious; with serious injuries they’re treated the best they can be a pokemon center, and further rehabilitated at the conservation.
Dragon-types are also commonly rescued by them, either from illegal breeding rings, illegal fighting rings, or people who neglect/abandon them since they turned out to be a lot more work than they thought. They’re given the care and attention they need and deserve.
All pokemon who are rescued or brought in, regardless of type, are treated with care and love. They are monitored as their injuries heal, and then Serena and the other caretakers there are able to help them relearn tasks like walking, flying, etc., especially if they’ve been given a fake limb.
Generally, once they’ve been aptly rehabilitated, they’re released back into the wild. For those with prosthetics, they’re kept in the sprawling acreages of the conservation, along with other endangered and vulnerable species that are watched over and taken care of. There are rare moments where they will let some of the pokemon be adopted into the care of a trainer, but the application process is verystrict. The last thing they want is for a pokemon they just helped to need rescuing again and be put into another horrible situation, so while the application process (an interview, questionnaire, references, etc) seems even more arduous than applying for a job, it’s for good reason.
#animal abuse tw #animal injury tw #since this is a current topic also #i would LOVE to touch on her rehabilitation stuff more like. genuinely. i rly love it #anything involving pokemon whether it's helping them or studying bonds between them and trainers is something she SUPER PASSIONATE about #she devotes a lot of time and money to these causes and would die for pokemon without question....
