Can you write some elriel funny jealousy with the prompt 88??
88. "(Name)?" - "Yeah?" - "I'm gonna kiss you now" - "Okay" .
Butterfly Kisses and the Warmth of the Sun
Tumblr media
Prompt: “Elain?” - “Yeah?” - “I’m gonna kiss you now” - “Okay” 
Inspired by the song “Good Days” by SZA
“It’s a beautiful day, isn’t it?” Azriel asked, gently lacing his large hand with Elain’s slender one as they sat on the picnic blanket while birds chirped and a gentle breeze ruffled her dress. She tilted her head to the sky and closed her eyes, savoring the feeling of the warmth of the sun on her skin and the floaty feeling that accompanied it. The picnic date was Azriel’s idea, and their fourth one. They had started dating a few weeks ago when they met, completely by chance, at Elain’s favorite flower shop. After months of obsessively wondering if Azriel was single and weeks of pining over him, Elain had finally gathered her courage and took the initiative of asking him out on their first date. It was a major hit, and when the night ended, they agreed to see each other the next weekend. Since then, they had taken turns asking each other out, and Elain felt like she was on Cloud 9. Azriel was the one, she was sure of it. Only four dates in, but he made her stomach flip and her heart pound and made her practically vibrate with nervous energy when she went out to meet him. They hadn’t kissed yet─no, Azriel was too much of a gentleman to kiss her before he knew she truly wanted to kiss him─and the thought of it made her involuntarily smile. “What’re you smiling about?” Said male cracked a smile. Elain slowly opened her eyes with the realization and she collapsed onto the blanket in a fit of giggles. A blush crept onto her already-rosy cheeks as she tried to stifle her laughter, waiting for her giggles to subside. Azriel, horribly endeared with a soft smile on his face, tentatively stroked her hair as he gazed down at her. 
“Nothing,” she grinned back at him. 
His face turned contemplative. “You’re beautiful,” he whispered, almost too quiet for her to hear. Elain’s stomach did flips and she giggled again quietly. They stayed in that position, Elain laying down on the blanket as Azriel surveyed her with very soft, very affectionate eyes. 
The spell was suddenly broken when he had asked her if she wanted a glass of sparkling fruit juice. “Please,” Elain replied as she hauled herself into a sitting position, adjusting her floral sun hat and dress accordingly. The pair sat in comfortable silence as butterflies floated above their heads and gorgeous rays of sunshine soaked them in light and warmth. “Az, could you pass me a napkin please?”
“Here, baby.” It was Azriel’s turn to flush pink now at the pet name that slipped out.
Elain’s heart soared. “Baby,” She echoed dreamily, “I like the sound of that.”
Azriel laughed, all tension from his expression melting away.  
A beat passed. “Y’know, I’ve been wanting to call you something─not baby, per se─but something similar to it for a while now,” Azriel said softly.
Elain’s heart leapt into her throat, holding her breath with anticipation. “And what is that?” She asked breathlessly. 
The light from the sun aligned like tiny stars in Azriel’s irises when he opened his mouth to answer. “Mine.” The pure joy in Elain’s heart was overwhelming. Heart soaring, she asked, “And if I kiss you now, will you be mine?” 
Azriel smiled softly, radiating happiness. “As long as you’ll have me.”
His hazel eyes lingered on hers, searching, yearning. Elain was so lost in his eyes and in the moment itself, she forgot how to speak, and all her previous inhibitions flew out the window, alongside her reasoning. 
She must have been staring because Azriel’s voice broke her from her trance. “Elain?” Her name sounded beautiful on his tongue.
“I’m gonna kiss you now.” 
Elain positively beamed. “Okay,” she whispered breathlessly.
Azriel closed the small space between them with a small shuffle of his knees and suddenly he was kissing her, her lips sliding against his soft ones. The kiss was slow and sensual and good, warmth spreading through Elain’s body and she curled her toes, trying to soak up every sensation, every touch. He licked against the seam of her lips and she let him in, making a soft noise at the back of her throat. At the sound, Azriel let out a hum of approval and Elain positively melted, turning to putty underneath his touch. As their breaths grow heavier, they pull apart and Azriel rests his head against hers, panting quietly. She breathed him in, slightly dazed, as if trying to imprint the memory of his kiss on her skin. Screw heaven. This was all she needed. 
Elain must have spoken aloud because Azriel barks out a joyous laugh as he breaks away. 
He smiles. “So you’ll be mine, then?”
“I wouldn’t want it any other way,” Elain matches his smile with equal energy and leans forward to place a quick butterfly kiss on his lips. 
“Good,” Azriel sighs contentedly, crawling closer to her and letting her settle comfortably against his chest as they lay on the picnic blanket, hearts fluttering, watching the clouds drift serenely by.
Trying my hand again at fluff! Feedback would be greatly appreciated :)
Also: Thank you for the ask-- I took the prompt and ran with it but completely forgot about the jealousy part! Sorry about that!

NESSIAN 24 24 24 24
I love them so much
All the Words We Never Said
Tumblr media
Prompt: “Give me one reason why I shouldn’t leave.”
This one was really fun to write ;)
Thank you for the prompt and stay safe!
I recommend listening to Out of Love by Alessia Cara while reading :) 
The day was cold and gloomy. Ice-cold wind whistled ruthlessly around Cassian, and he shivered, pulling his already thin jacket tighter around him. Fitting, he thought. It was almost like the weather could read his emotions. 
Alone, he stood on the doorstep of Nesta’s house, knocking twice before letting himself in. The door swung open effortlessly and dead silence greeted him. The apartment was dark and empty, the curtains drawn and living room lightless. Sighing, Cassian shook off his boots and coat and stepped onto the plush rug. He began picking the clothes strewn carelessly about the house, a hoodie on the couch, a pair of sweatpants hanging off the dining table chairs. Quietly, he wandered around the house, picking up various items of clothing. After separating them into his and Nesta’s, he folded them and mutely placed them on the coffee table next to the day-old mug of drained coffee. Cassian carefully gathered his stack of clothes and taking one last survey around the kitchen and living room, headed upstairs to pack the last of his things. 
They had agreed (well, more like fought over,) that Cassian was to keep the vacuum cleaner while Nesta took the blender and toaster. He could have the car, houseplants, and decor, so long as she could keep the house and its sizable furniture. Most of his stuff was already packed, waiting in his hastily-rented apartment, as he packed the last, and admittedly, the items he had procrastinated packing. His clothes. 
Packing his clothes meant he had to enter the bedroom─their shared bedroom. The place where so many firsts had happened. First kiss, first sleep-over, the first time he had asked her to be his girlfriend, first─
He shot down his thoughts before they could go any further. Quietly padding up the stairs and stopping at the door, he sighed yet again. There was nothing melodramatic about this. Kicking up a big fuss would not solve anything. It was best to get it over and done with. 
Taking a deep breath, he rapped loudly on the door. 
A small voice answered from inside the room. “Yes?”
Cassian was not expecting her to be here. “It’s Cassian,” he answered after a beat.
Everything went silent again. He took it as a sign to enter. 
The room was dark, save for the sliver of light rebelliously peeking out of the curtains. The bed sat right in the middle of the room, exactly in the same place as he remembered it. A human-sized lump lay under the covers. So this is where she’d been the last few weeks. Cassian tip-toed in. 
“Nesta?” He whispered, careful not to wake her.
A soft voice peeked out from underneath the bed sheets. “Cassian?” 
“Yeah. I announced myself after I knocked. Like you always asked.”
“Oh. Okay.” 
Nesta’s voice was unusually small. And hoarse. Guilt dropped like a stone in his belly. He shook it off almost as quickly as it came. 
A minute passed. “Why are you here?”
“I’m leaving.”  Cassian spoke at a normal noise level now. 
“Of course you are, that’s all you know how to do,” she conceded quietly. There was no venom coating her words, no sharp edge to her voice. How uncharacteristic of her. 
Minutes passed, and the only sound in the bedroom was the soft clicking of plastic hangers as Cassian removed his clothes from their shared closet. The clock ticked softly on the wall. Silence reigned ruthlessly. 
After a beat, Cassian asked, “Do you want me to leave?”
Strained silence. Then a whispered, “No.”An honest confession. The hurt in her words was unmistakable. 
Emboldened, Cassian tried to coax another response out of her. He needed something, something, at least, to hold on to, a reason to tell him why they didn’t work out. She had ended it abruptly, not giving him anything, not even an explanation as to why she ended it. Nesta had simply left. He sighed for the umpteenth time that day. “Give me one reason why I shouldn’t leave.”
He knew Nesta couldn’t bring herself to say it. They both knew. Somehow, Cassian knew she didn’t need to say the words to know she meant them, and ones she wouldn’t say were the loudest of them all, the words unspoken were left hanging in the air. All cards were laid on the table as deafening silence clanged around the two. 
Cassian tried again. “Is that all?” 
“Okay.” she echoed tonelessly. “What are you doing?” She added softly.
 “Packing up my things. You’ve suffered enough,” he whispered, zipping up his bags and stepping out of the darkened room. The door snicked softly behind him. 
They knew each other well enough at this point; the countless number of years they had spent together proved well enough that when Cassian left, he could sense Nesta’s heart─the one they had worked so hard together to repair─shatter into pieces. He didn’t have to hear it to know. 
The house was dark and silent as he left; its windows closed, the curtains drawn. 
Just the way he had found it. 
Cassian murmured a soft ‘goodbye’ and then he was gone, the scent of him vanishing on the howling wind.
Felt like writing a really quiet but angsty fic since this week has been super draining for me but I’m finally back on Tumblr after 5 months I think?? 
Hope you enjoyed! Leave a like/comment as that encourages me to write and produce more fics from the vast crevasses of my (weird) brain o.0

Prompt-based fandom events are when you really learn everyone’s colors like you’ll find the people who take the prompt “death” and come up with some smarmy ship-art of character A and character B walking over dead leaves while wearing scarves and drinking hot cider and then you’ll find the people who take the prompt “sunshine” and write how a bright glint of sunshine reflected off the barrel of a gun is the absolute last thing character A sees before taking a bullet to the chest
you can lead a content creator to water but you sure as fuck can’t make him drink

An Update
Time won't permit me to write another fic before 2021, but I revised "Goodbye, My Love" (the angsty Elriel fic) so if you read it again, there may be some changes. Essentially, I made it more painful ;]
Find it here 
Anyways, instead of a new fic, I'm currently working on a second prompt list since my ask box is empty and inspiration is nowhere to be found. Also, I'm getting bored of my current prompt list so I decided it was time to create a new one.
Stay tuned!

Is it just me or are in home libraries like the dreamiest thing? A little cozy room lined with shelves, full of books of all shape and color that you’ve collected over the years, with a big round window in an alcove where you can sit and sip some tea and thumb through your favorite novel and listen to the rain pattering against the glass. Thats the life
