when Chiron said: “perhaps it is the greater grief, after all, to be left on earth when another is gone.” when Hozier sang: “I'd be the choiceless hope in grief, that drove him underground” and when Circe thought: “I would live on, through each scalding moment to the next. This is the grief that makes our kind choose to be stones and trees rather than flesh.”

Legendary Flapper Louise Brooks in the three films that made her immortal.
She worked steadily during the mid 20s, until she left Paramount Studios in no good terms. She embarked to Germany and became G. W. Pabst’s inspiration, whom had always wanted her for the role of Lulú in Pandora’s Box ever since he saw her in A girl in Every Port (1928).Louise Brooks was virtually unknown in Europe. The gifted Pabst directed his muse in two masterpieces: Pandora’s Box and Diary Of a Lost Girl, both filmed in 1929; and wrote and produced a third minor gem for her: Prix de Beauté directed by Augusto Genina in 1930 and filmed in France.

Reasons I believe my friend is secretly some kind of deity
1) First time we spoke was a week after the beggining of freshman year she summed up my entire character and most of the events of my life Sherlock style. I asked her how the hell she knew all that. She just shrugged and said she figured out our entire class already.
2) The one time we had religion class instead of ethics she listened to the teacher for a few minutes, laughed and told me:
"Humans have wished to be gods so much they've forgotten they have to ability to create them. Imagination has truly suffered from this 'monotheism' stuff."
I was confused and asked her if she was an atheist. She rolled her eyes and said:
"Oh I believe in god alright. I just don't think the bastard deserves to be worshipped."
3) Out of nowhere she gave me this advice:
"The only truth a liar ever told was that lies weren't going to save you. Don't become the liar who has to pass that wisdom on, because they speak from experience."
4) To this day, she has one of those old-timey phones with buttons she only uses to ocassionally call someone. When I asked her why she never got a smartphone she got pouty:
"I hate social media. On Facebook they talk a lot but never say anything. If I wanted to listen to people moan about their problems and ask for help they don't expect I'd listen to their prayers." (Notice the choice of words)
5) I noticed she was stiff and I offered her a massage since I'm really good at it but when i started kneading her back I swear to this day those were not muscles I felt. I asked her what she did to turn her muscles into rocks covered with a thin layer of skin and she kinda froze then shrugged and said she was just really, really stiff. My hands hurt after ten minutes when I can usually go for an hour. Next time I offered she seemed surprised and laughed. She still has rocks for muscles.
6) We were having a debate over the way neural pathways are formed (I study biology and she forensics) and I jokingly asked if I could have her brain for study when she dies. She laughed.
"Sure, if you find a way to kill me you can have it. I'm actually curious what you're gonna find."
7) One time she was tired and miserable and I tried to comfort her. We both have really dark sense of humor so I told her she could scare the dead out of their graves with that glare. She told me the dead can't come back and I rolled my eyes and said 'obviously' but she continued:
"When you die you descend to the underworld with nothing to lose. To keep you, they give you something to lose. When you want to return, they will demand it back. That's why nobody ever leaves. The only way out is to never enter."
8) One day she just came up to me with a disappointed look on her face. When I asked her what was wrong she was quiet for a few seconds and then just told me:
"Betrayals committed in good intentions are still damning. Just... keep that in mind." Then she left and didn't speak to me for three days. I still don't know what she meant but even three years later I haven't forgotten it.
9) We were casually sitting on a bench when, out of nowhere, she asked me: "Is it just me or have humans gotten dumber? Or have they always been this stupid and I just haven't been paying attention?"
10) She asked me if I ever wondered what it was like to die. I said no but told her I would tell her when I found out. I meant it as a ghost joke but she smiled at me and said:
"Great. I'll wait for you to come back. Maybe you'll even remember me."
In conclusion, she is some kind of low-key god and she lost her faith in humanity even before we lost our faith in her but she's stuck with us because immortality is a bitch.
P.S. I just remembered her name is a variation on 'Eve'. Maybe I should reconsider my atheist status?!
UPDATE (Jan 9, 2019): Since people liked this so much I’m making it a thing. All I have about Eve can be found under #god goes to college

Due to a bizarre mix of impossible events, you gain complete immortality. Only thing is that you have no idea you’re immortal.

Aidan Gallagher’s depiction of a 58-year-old in Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy is too good to be fake. He’s clearly just an immortal; definitely older than John Mulaney but not as old As Keanu Reeves. So, became an immortal sometime in the Early to Mid 19th century? I mean, he looks too comfortable in the schoolboy outfit, therefore he must have worn it for an extended period of time in the past.

Fantasy Guide to Immortality
Immortality is the ability to live forever while staying somewhat young. Sometimes it is awesome but really it sucks ass.
Tumblr media
Thanks for the Memories
You are immortal so you have seen some shit. You have witnessed the rise and fall of empires, the building of the pyramids, the world's most interesting events. But will you remember these things? Do you as a mortal remember everything? Can you remember what flavour your birthday cake at your fifth birthday? Do you remember the face of your first teacher? Maybe you do, perhaps not. Living over hundreds of years means millions of memories. What will you remember?
Tumblr media
Means
How did your character become immortal? Just born that way and ageing slowly? Bitten by a vampire? A spell from a witch or a blessing of a god. Immortality can be a blessing but think on it: if you live forever, you will surpass your family, friends and people you know. You could be left all alone after a few decades and the gift will seem like a curse.
Tumblr media
Something to lose
If you're immortal, what can you lose? You can't die, or lose friends/family or be wounded fatality. What can you lose?
Tumblr media
Types of Immortality
No holds barred: You are immortal. You can't be wounded. You are powerful as a god.
Semi-immortal: You may live forever but you may get injured.
Conditional: You are only immortal if something happens. If magic is real, perhaps. If you do a certain ritual like drink a magic potion. Can you lose your immortality based on not fulfilling a promise or a ritual?

Prologue
Tumblr media
Summary: Since the beginning of their existence, BTS has been cursed to have to share their soulmate with each other. It doesn’t help that their soulmate is mortal.
Word Count: 1k
Pairings: BTS x Reader/OT7 x reader
Genre: Drama
Warnings: Minor Injury
Chapter 1
“She’s here” a staff member peaked their head into the room.
The members of BTS were lounging on the office chairs in the large room, taking advantage of the few minutes they had. The boys adjusted their posture as a woman walked into the room, cautious eyes focused on her figure.
This woman was well versed in the kind of magic it took to locate certain persons. Specifically soulmates. BTS had been lucky in that fate had brought them all together in their past. Now, it seemed that fate no longer worked in their favor. They had been content with each other over the past century, but something felt as though it was missing during the last two decades. And only during the last few years did they realize that the thing they were missing was their final soulmate.
For their success, the universe demanded balance and so had barred them from meeting their soulmate. With each passing day, they felt part of themselves being chipped away at your absence, becoming more and more consumed with questions of how you would look, sound, feel. They had assumed with all the people they were meeting on a day to day basis, they would have somehow found you, yet you still continued to elude them. They had all but reached their breaking point and decided to take matters into their own hands.
The witch supposedly specialized in tracking spells. Management had found her after she gained some notoriety from the locals after finding a plethora of runaway pets and assisting in missing person cases with town police. Anything supernatural was hidden from the public however so her skill was written off as being an exceptionally skilled public investigator. After she was brought in to negotiate a nondisclosure agreement which revealed the true nature of BTS did she also reveal that she was a witch.
The witch was out of her depth here and BTS could tell. Yoongi regarded her nervous stance with a scrutinizing glare; Namjoon’s was more empathetic. He stood to greet her, a kind smile on his face to ease the witch.
“Hello, I’m Kim Namjoon and this is Kim Seokjin, Kim Taehyung, Park Jimin, Jung Hoseok, and Min Yoongi,” he pointed a hand towards each member as he introduced them. The witch gave a closed lip smile and slightly bowed at the group. “Thank you for doing this. We appreciate it. Truly.” Namjoon smiled again.
The witch nodded and sat in the empty chair at the end of the conference table. She reached into her bag that she had brought and began placing its contents onto the table. A ritual mat with strange, foreign symbols nearly covered half the table. Colorful stones and tokens such as small bones and pieces that looked as if they came from a chess set rather than a witch’s arsenal were placed on top of the mat. Her hands remained steady despite her blushing face and nervous glances that gave away her true feelings.
“Have you done this before?” Jungkook somewhat rudely inquired. The witch’s nervousness had fed into his worries that the ritual wouldn’t work and they would be forced to go without their soulmate longer.
The witch looked at Jungkook with partially wide eyes. “Yes. But I haven’t done anything like this. No one has ever asked me to find their soulmate,” she meekly said with a respectful bow. Jungkook pursed his lips at her admittance. Yoongi rolled his eyes as Jin gave a quiet reassurance to the woman.
“I just need your blood to begin.” She pulled out a small knife and the boys slid forwards in their seats and held out their hands. She reached around making a small cut on each of the member’s left hand and then held it over the center of the mat until a few drops of blood spilled.
Jimin watched intensely as the witch picked up the tokens and clasped them in her hands. The rest of BTS watched with curious gazes as she closed her eyes and murmured into her hands a barely audible spell. The boys could feel her power charge the longer she spoke like a pressure building on their chests.
Their blood began to move upon the mat, making odd curls and patterns. The pressure on their chests kept building until it felt as though their ribs would capsize under it. It eventually peaked before plateauing, daring them to try to breathe, and the witch stilled for a moment before dropping the tokens in her hands onto the table. Her eyes snapped open, a bright silver color, and she read the markings the boys’ blood made on the mat. The message was written in an ancient language unknown to the boys.
“Her name is y/n y/l/n.”
Author’s Note: Hey so this is my first fic!!!! I’m really excited to see how it turns out because I do plan to continue with this. Let me know what you think!!!
