"Danchou..." Seox says, struggling to find the right words. After all that they've done for him, no amount of words could express how grateful he feels towards them.
"I feel a simple 'thank you' isn't enough...for everything."
It was always like that, wasn’t it? They help someone by doing something they simply feel is natural, and people have trouble expressing their gratitude. Really, ‘thank you’ was enough. Besides, it was Gran who was jealous of the time Seox had spent with their dad, and it was Gran who was willing to break laws to keep Seox free. In the grand schemes of things, wasn’t everything they had done just what friends do?
But, well, since he was offering…
Hands reach up, and fingers pinch his ears (the mask was in the way again). “ Never do that again ”, expression stern this time. “ I don’t wanna fight Lecia another time 'cuz we have to get someone out of there ”, unofficially their standing with the Enforcer’s was good, officially however…
Then they let go, a wide grin now on their face as they take a few steps back; “ Is that better ? ”
#grxndcyphcr #gbf v. #I............................had to reply to it asap.............i had to..... #LMAOOO THNAK U FOR SENDING THIS??????????????????????? #part of the event i was expecting prison breakout seox edition #we Did do that w black knight after all #instead we got That scene that made me think ssooo much of enies lobby with robin LOLLL IT WAS GREAT #love this event #THANK U!!!!!! #for gran..helping is just...natural......ofc a thank u is enough....gran just did what they wanted anyway......
'I know how to do farm work', they had said confidently. 'Let me help you', they had continued without specifying the very important detail of that they knew the physical stuff and not... monster care (not that they would be very much help farming in this place). Brushing them was easy enough (or well, Gran personally thought they did a good job), gathering their resources as well, but then the wooly was looking at them with its big eyes and all Gran could do was give the shears back to Raguna.
‘Oh that’s good!’ he had replied with no semblance or ability to doubt the other. ‘Thank you!’ he’d accepted most gratefully. After all, even though Raguna was quite capable of handling the duties of his farm in Trampoli without much of an issue, help was always appreciated. The more assistance he had with the daily work and schedule the more time he could have to work on his personal projects, temper his skills and improve various odds and ends around the homestead. There was a window he wanted to fix after all! And with winter coming… well, he’d get around to it if he didn’t get preoccupied with a new cave or ruin commanding his attention. Gran was also apt to distract him with an adventure.
Raguna would never ever say it, but you could say Gran owed him this assistance!
If you could call it assistance. They were definitely helping but they were also not quite as capable as they first described. But this is Raguna, he’s not going to hold it against them, and they were still, technically, helping. Raguna spent maybe half the time fixing small missteps as he would have doing the work himself. This is a net positive! Ah, but then came the woolies, and the shears find their way back into the Earthmate’s hands.
“Uh, Gran? Is there a problem…?” He tilts his head, looking between the shears, the other, then the woolie. “You’re… are you scared of hurting the woolie? You know there’s not much to worry about. Foof is really good about getting clipped, she’s not going to hurt or jump away or anything like that! You know the woolies enjoy getting this done, don’t you?” Alas, the other seems quite disarmed, placated, charmed by the big ol eyes even.
Getting over this may take some baby steps…
#rcguna #SAVE ! #THIS ONE.............MAKES ME HAPPY #ITS SO FUNNY #like the entire initial conversation and raguna just going oh nice thank u:)!! #'temper his skills' (skill up!) #THE CROSSED OVER SENTENCE? IS INCREDIBLE #god the entire image of gran fixing something and raguna following behind to fix it up is literally so funny #foof......i love her.... #GOD I JUST LOVE THIS THING SO MUCH
He understands precious little in the way of Skydweller customs - from the way they dress to the systems they have in place, and though he is always eager to learn more about the crew and its members, he does find the very idea of a festival a bit strange. Especially one done to honor a Primal Beast that has, apparently, in recent decades skewed so much from its original intent that it scarcely resembled the holy ceremony it had once been. Conversations overheard from various crew members implies that this festival is often packed with people wearing silk garments and playing games to earn rewards from booths set up along the street. And he can barely even picture such a thing in his head, though he does briefly recall reading about such celebrations in the labs back in Canaan, but the festivals depicted in such texts often harbored a far darker meaning that this one seemed to be lacking entirely. He had been hesitant to agree to it, but he was easily swayed when it came to such matters - a few words from the Singularity or Lyria, and he had been convinced to take part on it. Enough so that the girl in blue had managed to wiggle him free of the armor he always wore, and into a loose yukata that was, according to her, common for such festivals.
And oh he felt dreadfully out of place without the weight of steel pressing down upon his chest or the chill of metal against his back. When the wind blow , and the shimmering, azure fabric rustled faintly against his skin, the soft caress felt entirely foreign to him. For a moment, calloused fingers fiddled with the long hem of one of the sleeves, and he stood stock straight out of habit - the soft texture barely rubbing against the ugly, twisted scars upon his back where wings had once been. Used to the restrictive nature of his armor, he maintained perfect posture even when free of it. He almost resembled a stature more than he did a person, and it showed when a handful of the festival goers sopped to gawk at him for a moment, only to shuffle away when he turned his head to offer them a gentle smile. Earning a raised brow from the former Supreme Primarch, and the slight downward of his lips as he mulled over whether or not there was a better way to greet them.
That train of thought; however, is discarded the moment the sun begins to dip beneath the wide mountains tucked away in the distance, and the lanterns strung from the booths he can just barely see from where he stands at the dock waiting for the rest of the crew to join him begin to glow against the glittering stars and deep, ebony sky that settles in for the night. Wonder creeps into bright, azure irises and, for a moment, his eyes widen at the sight. A thousand lights of orange, red, and yellow speckle the streets, casting a flaxen glow on the Skydwellers currently making their way down the road and spills out onto the grainy street itself. And his gaze travels upwards, as a handful of those lanterns are released into the night sky - slowly painting them in the same array of warm colors as the dwindling sunset itself had just a moment ago. But, somehow the colors, this time, are softer. Warmer. More welcoming. Like he was returning to that shaded garden after a long mission, ad the flowers were blooming just for him.
The hesitation he had felt is gone now, replaced by a newfound interest in the festival, and he can feel a strange sense of joy crawling over his skin at the idea of walking amongst the Skydwellers that pass him, and basking in the same sight as they do. Now, perhaps, he understands the excitement that had been buzzing through the crew as they had been getting ready a few hours ago. A gentle smile climbs onto pale lips and doesn’t vanish when he hears the sound of footsteps shuffling against the lush grass, and turns to face the Singularity. “I am beginning to see why the crew was so eager for this.” Something akin to wonder slips into his voice as he speaks, and it would have never been present before his revival, but excitement is written upon his smooth features. There’s a shine to his eyes, and a quiver to his lips that comes from senseless, almost childlike awe. “You have my gratitude for convincing me to attend this festival, I am looking forward to seeing it properly. Where would you like to go first, Singularity, I will accompany you.”
#aaetherius #SAVE ! #long post// #AAAAA i love this #lucifer being hesitant at first but being convinced is....like the IMAGE of it happening. is so endearing to me #lyria mvp...... #the entire 2nd para is just.........SO good #i mentioned that before too but the scars mention? and then lucifer resembling a statue and ppl staring until he looks at them LOLL #i cant put it into words but i just think that mix of what he Has been with trying to get used to these New things its just v charming #and lucifer then understanding why ppl had been so excited cuz he has now SEEN what was gonna happen.........ITS GOOD.........experiencing #new things good #seeing him experiencing new things is EVEN BETTER #ITS VERY ENDEARING........the 4th para.....very precious #thank u
His stay on the Grandcypher was merely by chance, a man that should not by any means exist there. A man whose presence would go against everything the Omnipotent wished for. But the Captain allowed for it, and Kaleb was drawn to the young man; it was not that Gran did not care. On the contrary, by allowing him abroad he could keep a watchful gaze on such an unknown factor.
Whatever his reasons were, the king had decided to keep his distance initially. To return where he was supposed to be was his long term goal, but something or someone seemed to not allow him. Like an invisible wall blocking his path. It was insufferable.
The young man seemed to reach out to him, again and again. The method the king chose to entertain him was by sparring with the Captain whenever he found himself in the mood for it. It would tire him out, and avoid further questions that would never be answered.
By both of them.
However, it was by this way that the demon had found the strength contained in what some called the “Singularity”. His plans to return were postponed, driven by the charisma and potential of another. An odd thought.
He found out Gran had a tendency to overwork himself, and it was in one of those days he found the Captain still awake late into the night. Something familiar to himself, and that evoked a small, imperceptible laughter from delicate lips. Uncharacteristic to his behavior up until now, the King had decided to assist him in weapon upkeep. A small, small habit they had developed together.
Kaleb still did not answer any curious questions that arose from time to time. Gran then knew better not to pry, but it was maybe by his curious and reckless nature that he possessed that the subject would yield things that could be pieced together. That he was someone from afar, and not entirely human. The latter did not bother the Captain, having once explained the concept of Primal Beasts to the king. That his morals were questionable at times, and that was developed due to some kind of influential position.
Gran had interacted with way too many kingdoms - way too many kings. As much as he admittedly did not understand, this was not something new to the “Singularity”.
It was in one of such talks that he heard something completely unexpected. And that he realized he enjoyed the presence of a young man that was also forced to grow up too fast. A man so reckless, so desperate to prove himself. So desperate to make his actions matter, so desperate to save everyone and to help as much as he could. A bright eyed Captain that has seen too much but still held on tight to the concept of hope. A wise man, and then someone who would simply feel accomplished by an afternoon of sword training.
A being who invited disaster and one that had consistently saved the world from calamities untold.
It was almost fascinating.
“You would do better than say things to me that could be applied to yourself, Gran.”
It evoked a sense of familiarity.
“There are, however… things that we are afforded to lose. Some things that we are forced to lose. One gives us an edge over what we seek, and the other… are simply the consequences of our actions. Casualties.
You should be careful that your actions do not make yourself turn into one.”
To throw yourself into the jaws of death to prove something was something he was way too used to.
“As brave as you are, there are people who would mourn you. No one is truly invincible, as much as we desperately want to believe we are.”
#SAVE ! #tyraunt#long post//#death mention// #THIS......................IS VERY GOOD #the reason for the sparring is so funny still like the entire CONCEPT.....of sparring..just to not get questions.........is Amazing #i love it #+ weapon upkeep??? just having those habits w/ the other is ssooooooo nice......... #god the entire thing of not being bothered by neither not being human nor being royalty cuz gran alrdy KNOWS so many like that is so funny t #o me too #like ud THINK that gauge a reaction...but alas! #god this entire thing is just chefs kiss #the 'do not make yourself into one'!!!! #that entire dialogue is SOOOOOO nice to read....i love it........good content all of this

#stardust speaking ! #writing is still on the backburner but thats no surprise to anyone #im v vocal with struggling w my creativity for a Long while LMAO #but i have 2 asks i wanna send on other blogs so. i wanna get to that this week #this aint an update post its an orangestar promotion post #ive been looping orangestar's henceforth A Lot today. its very good
the mere thought of it makes her laugh. after all the time they spent together, how couldn’t gran know that alina was probably the most inconsequential person they have ever met? there is also something akin to lack of impulse lingering amid a seemingly calm disposition, whenever she laughs at their antics or simply sits there in silence whilst patching their wounds. or that one time when they were silent, staring at the starry skies and wishing for a better tomorrow, for an actual clue of what lies ahead in the edge of the sky.
don’t think about the consequences, they say. with their usual smile and their usual way, that attracts all kinds of trouble and mischief. guess this was to be expected when you become a leader for an entire crew. but alina never minded that, never thought them to be truly annoying aside their pranks and honest remarks. gran was gran, and that would never change.
but alina merely stares at them for a moment, seeing as they have their usual cheeky smile and the kind of attitude that would piss most people off. some people often said the captain was a brat and they weren’t entirely wrong. but it was endearing, just like lyria’s endless appetite and vyrn’s cries of help whenever katalina inched closer to him.
before she realises, she had leaned too close to them, silently pressing a kiss to their lips.
inconsequential, impulsive and eloquent. had gran taken more care, they wouldn’t have ended up that close to each other. but their relationship was unique, in their own way. they didn’t break through their walls or didn’t force an understanding that was never there to begin with. before she realised, they were so involved with her daily life that it was hard to not imagine life without their stupid jokes or their heartfelt laugh. it’s like something was missing, and that same thing was found the moment alina realised how much they meant to her.
how much she actually loved them.
it doesn’t last long and by the moment she pulls away, they are staring back at her with wide eyes. usually embarrassment would have taken over her, but instead alina smiles brightly, one finger gently touching their nose.
‘ … you told me to not think about it. ’ she giggles at their reaction, finding their flustered expression to be one of the sweetest things she had ever seen. gran opens their mouth to protest but seeing as their own words had been used against them, a sigh comes out instead. alina merely giggles again, soon wrapping her arms around their torso and resting her cheek against their chest. the feeling of their arms around her was something entirely new, something warm. it soothes and calms her down, bringing out a feeling that hasn’t been inside her heart for the longest time now.
it feels like home.
and now, being under such a lovely starry sky, listening to the heartbeat of the person she loved the most, everything in the world felt just right. so when gran laughs again, she closes her eyes, allowing her mind to wander freely, just like they sailed through the endless skies.
#florifelt #SAVE ! #long post// #THIS....THIS ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #MAKES ME!!!!!!!!! #'the kind of attitude that would piss most ppl off' is the best sentence ive ever read #it feels like home.....GOOOOOD THIS ONE??? is so pretty. god i love. this piece. so much #like the whole image of gran saying that for some bs reason and alina doing THAT.... #and the way u write the 2nd to last para.......its like...SO VIVID............. #i love it...... #IM LOVE THEM UR HONOR
@toestalucia asked, They’re laying on her bed, eyes on the ceiling while listening to the rain pitter-patter against her windows, seemingly in deep thought but reacting to any other noise she made regardless. “If you hadn’t ended up here”, they start, gaze not once changing its direction. It’s not a necessarily deep question, but the more people Gran met, and the more things changed, the more they found themself coming back to it. “Where do you think you would’ve been?”
#SAVE ! #fenixdown #this......................is so good....forever............. #the 'tiny hearts and smiley faces' is so so endearing. its such a small thing but it gives SO MUCH and i...adore those kinda things.. #and then the para with the 'that her heart had broken and found its way back together'??? that entire para???? is gorgeous #i love it to pieces #the 'it had bloomed. she had bloomed' too.............................................is so good.... #any kind of metaphors to plants(growing/blooming) etc is just Sweet and IIIIIIIIII..........man this is so good #THE LAST SENTENCE!!!!!!!!!! belongs in the louvre
@toestalucia asked : eating together with friends is always more fun, isn’t it? so gran doesn’t explain anything when they hand one of the cups with fruit salad to lucky, and instead just grins and sits down beside him to eat their own.
eh ?eh ? a free fruit cup from the one and only GRAN ?! no way , NO WAY ! was he dreaming ? and yet , even if he was doomed to wake up to a chewed-on pillow ( again , )he still doesn’t want the dream to end . the way to his heart was straight through his stomach , so … maybe … gran was flirting with him through fruit ? lately , that word seemed to be a popular thing to call everybody in town . lucky’s starting to think he finally understands what it means . just how much of a scandal was gran planning to cause ? would they feed each other strawberries and melon slices right there ? right in the open ? he’s not sure if his heart is ready for it . all his months and years of practicing being the kabedon-er and he’s never been able to find anyone man enough to kabedon him , and now his soul was getting glued to the metaphorical wall without an inch of space . this wasn’t fair ! even if they’ve been long been engaged and wed by the almighty ring-pop as best friends , this was just too much for a plain country boy’s soft heart . he’d never reach the mechanic / doctor / rock star / luchador / torturer / cat boy lumberjack levels that gran , in all their godlike precocity , could somehow manage . lucky suddenly stands , because sitting next to gran right now felt like a right that was yet entirely unearned . he wouldn’t run away . he wouldn’t ! carpe diem or carpe disaster , he’s simply struck by an idea birthed out of the moment . ‘ p-parfait ! ‘ what was fruit without ice cream ? what was friendship without a little something from each friend , shared and sweet ? even in the midst of his self-inflicted embarrassment and confusion , lucky could have said with absolute certainty that he was still happy . ‘ we’re s’posed’t’ave ice-cream with this kinda thing , gran ! i’ll give ya heapin’ spoonfuls , i’ll — i’ll do my best ! ‘
#SAVE ! #assortedsnacks #this will always be so endearing to me............just...the way he KEEPS reacting is so funny... #the entire thought process throughout it is so GOOD and itso so FUNNY to read #LIKE EAH TIME I REREAD ITS JUST??? such a joy?????? the fact grans just hres some fruit and luckys goes brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr #and the mention of grans damn classes im kjabajksbkdkad LOVE THIS #so much
Lightheartedly, the girl laughed, her arms behind her back as she looked at Gran, her eyes shining with excitement. One could deem her reaction to such a simple statement a bit excessive, but to Lyria, the ability to agree with his words meant the world. Were it not for the people she’d met, people she had grown so fond of, her will to live and, most importantly, love her life would never return.
Katalina, Gran, Vyrn, Rackam, Io, Eugen and many, many others… all of their faces and names she held dear.
And none of them, no matter how fleeting some of those meetings could be, she would ever forget no matter what.
“These are memories I cherish, and I will never, ever let go of them. Not even when I’m old and wrinkly. It’s a promise. But… I hope there will be new encounters, new friends and faces to remember, don’t you?”
#SAVE ! #skymaidcn #guuhhh this si so CUTE...LYRIA IS SO CUUTEEEEEEEEEEEE #the first para...with the 'such a simple statement a bit excessive'......is so good....... #theres this WARMTH in th eentire thing and iii....love it........its so good.......thank u..
nvm being away, my sor comment 2.0 is the fact that they placed it before the crew goes to oarlyegrande, rly makes the running off after being told by lecia that the man who cared for seox was grans dad…hit different. the whole thing of feeling his(?!) presence when entering edgelands, hearing mika&shitori talk about him, having walfried say dad didnt want a singularity (have walfried be bitter about mom), having ur family lore that was kept from u…and then hearing ur dad went to take care of Another child….is like…..A Lot to deal with it in such a short time

They’re caught in their own thoughts, gaze lazily set on the bright moon above. For a viewpoint the ground wasn’t very comfortable to sit on, but Gran soon forgot about that as well, listening to her in silence until even that fades out. Not in an awkward way, never like that, because silence with her was easy. Being alone together, a stranger had once said to their friend on a ship to another town, and the image of her blonde hair had flashed by in their head.
The words catches them off-guard, slowly sinking in before mindless thoughts manages to realize she spoke. Reaction a bit late and not very big, but a slight surprise on their face as they turn to look at her. …Well, that described what they were doing right now pretty well, didn’t it? So, the expression changes into warmth, corner of their lips turning upward and, unfortunately, a hint of mischief in their eye.
Body adjusts and they are on their knees, hands reaching toward her and——pinches her cheeks. “ What, you’re a poet now ? ” laughter filling the night air. After all, they wouldn’t have it any other way.
#fenixdown #U...................... #hello...thnak u... #i love that damn song HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH #well i love majority of their songs LMAO #also. theyre not rly the same. but have u ever checked out novo amor...i feel their lyrics are a bit more ambigous than sleeping at last #but theres a lot of very pretty stuff in there #BUT THANK U FOR THIS ???

surely the poor captain was exhausted after such a long day of talking and receiving gifts, but this didn't stop her from planning something. the cold air proved to be a good inspiration so when she hands them a cup of hot cocoa, alina has to laugh. "figured you'd have enough chocolate for a month or two by now, so... i did something else." this was enough, right? it seemed simple but that's how things were between them. simple. natural. warm. "happy valentines day, gran."
Arms supporting them when they lean against the railing, the first moment of being not only alone, but also knowing that very few people would strike a conversation with them at this time. They don’t mind it, being around people was more comfortable after all. Talking, however, was not. Usually they could leave that part to everyone else, but on days like today when the focus was on them there was little reason to do so. Still, they didn’t dislike it, chest brimming with warmth at the notion that people cared for them. They already knew that, they always knew, but it didn’t diminish the importance of people’s feelings today.
And then she shows up, not for the first time that day, but this time with a gift.
They hadn’t realized they’d feel this relieved at receiving something.
Lips gently pressed against her cheek before they accept the gift, somewhat embarrassed at how nerve-wracking the question of if she was doing something or not turned out to be. It shouldn’t matter, it didn’t matter, because they already knew how she felt. But with how big of a deal everyone else made out the day to be…it was hard to not be affected.
They don’t say anything, instead offering her a smile. Really, this was more than enough.

Elderly Woman: Your Father asked me not to tell you anything, (Captain).
Elderly Woman: How many times did you ask me this question when you were younger? Elderly Woman: “How come I don’t have a real family?” Vyrn: Yeah, no one ever gave us a straight answer. Vyrn: They’d just tell us everyone in the village was family. Every single time. So we shrugged and stopped asking.
these parts right here ur honor

Excited, and a bit childish, grin on their face once the drink is in front of them. Dealing with Sandalphon was always strange, the all too familiar sensation of falling once his hands were a bit too close, despite how much time had passed since then. Pushing him into trying new things, and pushing people to him, quick to make fun of him at every turn of it all. There’s no ill will, nor is there any distrust (not anymore), and yet…
Well, guess that’s what it’s like to make friends with your former enemy.
So, the drink is taken with glee, hands taken hold of the cup without thanking him, and—
No, really, how did people drink this stuff?!
Bitter sensation that takes a lot of willpower to swallow, grimace on their face that tells exactly what they think of it.
“ T-thanks… It’s…great… ” …even if their words does not.
#loreconcepts #HELLO THANK U FOR THIS ONE TOO BEFORE #ill always rly like captain&sandals relation considering all the shit that has happened #i think its A LOT of fun #even if gran wont ever understand his love for coffee #despite their MANY attempts. cuz grans idea of not giving up extends to this too
"Here you go, my lord!" How did she cook this when she's a stowaway? Don't ask questions you dont want the answer to.
She doesn’t need to greet them, because Gran has already turned toward her, gaze curiously fixated on the reason for the sweet scent in the air. That…looked really good. If she hadn’t offered, they’d be joking about who’s the lucky recipient. Instead the smile quickly grows on their face (although, the entire ordeal of how she got into the kitchen was slightly troublesome).
" Wanna share ? “ they start, despite how hard waiting was when the dish smelled this good. ” It’s easier to keep a secret when you’re both guilty “, or so Gran says, even though they’re the first one to throw others under the bus whenever the suspicions of stolen food rose too high. But what mattered was the bonding part, right? Eating food alone was boring anyway.
#shana oh #hello.........................:) #SHES SO CUTE??????? I LOVE HER.................. #THIS IS SO SOFT...thank u so much........
" My name is Rimuru Tempest! I'm not a bad slime! "
Hand still on the handle of their sword once the slime had approached, preferring to simply redirecting its path and only using the flat side of the sword to block should it become hostile, but none of that is needed. For the blue slime speaks and for a second, all Gran does is stare at it.
Then, they crouch, still taller than…Rimuru, but now close enough to press the palm of their hand against the top of the slime, looking for just about any other reaction to confirm that the slime was actually talking to them.
