So that’s what a lesbian romance killer found family urban fantasy book looks like 🤷♂️
A/N: I wrote this as a drabble a good while ago, and had originally posted it on Dimitryi. It’ll find home here now.
Warnings: Loss. Otherwise none.
There are nights where I catch my eyes travelling downwards, towards the grains beneath my feet where my thoughts lay paralysed. My mind drifts between reality and my subconscious.
I look up.
And I see you.
Nala comes from behind a rock. I have decided to confront our leader, or rather the brains behind a facade, Scar. Scar conveniently had a male after her brother, conveniently came back with the news of simba’s passing, and had decided she had no time for mourning.
All very suspicious…
“Ah. Nala what a surprise to see you here. Have you come to complain? Wouldn’t you bring that to the king?” Scar sounded surprise but had the same poker face.
“I have two complaints actually. Specifically for you. If you aren’t busy, sitting around.” I wasn’t going to be easily convinced of her innocence until we had time to talk.
“Hey! Stay away from the queen!” A tiny voice squawked from the ground.
Tiny, Scar’s lifelong friend and ally and Zazu’s cousin. Sharing nearly the same life, being rejected by their own kind and changing names. She was incredibly annoying, more annoying than Zazu.
I ignored her to share my complaints. “One. You have caused the ruin of the pride lands and the animals that reside. Hunting has had to become scarce and the hyenas cause frequent fights. Two. While a king may sit on pride rock he does nothing because you are the real person in charge so the person at fault is you.”
Scar had an angry expression before she calmed. “Since you mentioned two complaints you get two responses. One.” Scar stood up and took on a menacing aura. “My word may not mean much to you but I decided to suggest some rules about the precious resources on my land. Making sure none of you die because I can’t lose this place. Two.” Scar got right in my face with angry expression yet again before backing off with a smile. “No one should question my reign. You have lost your protection gained from being Simba’s future queen. If you would like to challenge me how about you find a king yourself and prove how they, somehow, have rights to the throne.”
“Impossible?” Scar had a bigger and now evil grin. “Exactly but you seem so desperate so why don’t you leave the cave and maybe even the lands to find your hero, if you can.”
I know that this is impossible but I will try my best to give my people even a chance to live in prosperity again.
As I left Scar said, “I’ll make sure no one wants you back, no matter what.”
So if it hard to tell this is told from Nala’s point of view before she leaves and finds Simba. This is with my female Scar story thing and I introduced a character tiny. I thought it would be fun if Scar had more allies than the hyenas. Anyway this was fun to write and the drawing on top was something to accompany what I write.
It really has been a while since I have written so hello. I would love to write more things so if people have suggestions other than the Lion Knig that would appreciated!!
All cops are part of a system designed to avoid consequences.
Cops are often trained as “warriors”, acting first whether or not there is a threat to act against.
Are there still people who would deny that racism is part of America?
Bastards are the result.
I mentioned yesterday that Creation is populated by Humans and Shapechangers. Well, this seems like a good time to what they are, and what makes them different than the ordinary, boring humans we have in our world.
Humans are, for the most part, like the humans of Earth, with two main differences.
The first difference is that humans can use the magic known as
Cathurgy. I’ll go into more detail on what that is in another post, but
suffice to say that its exclusivity to creatures of Human descent is what encouraged the other races to breed with Humans whenever possible.
Which leads into the second difference. Early Humans were extremely… compatible with the other fantastical races of Creation, and were able to reproduce faster than any other race. The result is that Humans eventually became the dominant sentient lifeform by diluting the bloodlines other races with their own stock. There’s only so many times an Elf can be “half-human” before it becomes just “human” after all. Every Human on Creation is a mongrel breed of Human and other races, with traits that are either enhanced or suppressed by each other.
For most people, these fantastical traits are relatively subtle: Pointed ears, sharpened teeth, rougher skin, etc. No two Humans have the same mix of ancestors, and so no two will ever share the same traits. I mentioned that the traits are subtle for most because there is a small, but growing, part of Humanity developing more intense traits, or mutations, such as additional eyes, limbs, and so on. It’s believed that this is caused by the combination of multiple recessive aspects of the various races that were bred into Humanity over the generation, and that now those aspects are combining in unexpected ways.
The other race of Creation is the Shapechangers, who, as the name suggests, can change their appearance. In their native form, Shapechangers are a sort of amorphous mass of fleshy, stem cell-like gel surrounding a central “brain”. However, this form is only seen in two kinds of Shapechangers: the newly born, and the dead. Like how Humans have no control over whether their heart beats or their stomach digests, Shapechangers will automatically take on more solid physical forms.
The Shapechanger does this by first consuming another creature. Once they’ve eaten enough of something, they are able to take on its physical form: either fully or partially. Shapechangers can combine the traits of their known forms in almost any combination, their bodies producing more of their gel-like original form and “hardening” it into muscles, organs, and bones. There’s some leeway with their bodies beyond what they’ve eat, allowing them to adjust the size and length of their body and limbs to a degree. However, any adjustments that are not copied from something they ate fall quite quickly into the uncanny valley when seen by their potential prey.
This does, of course, mean that Shapechangers in Human society have almost certainly eaten a Human, or at least part of one. This is a strictly kept secret by Shapechangers, as their whole purpose in joining Human groups is to avoid being hunted and killed by them. Most Shapechangers with Human forms have pieced them together from several base bodies, which they got by eating Humans who died from other sources. The fact that large numbers of Shapechangers join Human nations after conflicts with major casualties should be a cause of great concern for any Human who happens to be familiar with the Shapechanger life cycle.
But, since Shapechangers tend to do everything in their power to avoid being made out as Shapechangers, most Humans go through their whole lives never knowing how these boogiemen manage to look like them.
For those struggling with a bereavement a time when family get-togethers are heavily restricted, we hope these suggestions help.
Use technology to grieve with others
Grief can make you feel isolated in normal times, so under the circumstances it’s especially important to try to feel connected with others. Technology can facilitate this and help you to grieve collectively, as you would do at a funeral and wake.
You might be scattered around the country or the globe, and you haven’t been able to go to that funeral [but you can still connect].
Be aware of complex grief
“Grief is a natural process and we will all go through that, but it’s important to be aware of complex grief,” some people may feel the trauma of losing loved ones without being able to say goodbye as time goes on.
“Grief will affect people differently. The best thing to do is talk about it. Watch out for yourself reaching a place where you can’t move on,”.
Don’t be afraid to ask for the help you need If you’re grieving, it’s important to try to have some element of routine in your life, whether that’s a daily walk or your connection with people.
“We all say to people who’ve been bereaved: ‘Let me know if I can help’ and when we’re grieving we always say: ‘Yes I will’ but it’s important on both sides to actually be specific in that”.
“Say: ‘I’m going to give you a call at 6pm tonight because I know that’s when you have downtime’ or: ‘I’ll send you a text in the morning.’
Be kind to yourself
It’s crucially important to treat yourself with kindness and know that you’ll have some better days and some that are harder - and that’s okay.
It is so important to keep talking about the person you’ve lost, to share those precious memories you made together, perhaps on the phone with those who shared that time, or on Facebook. Facebook has a memories feature that can help you look at old memories, there is also an app called time hope that allows you to do the same, I personally, don’t find this helpful, as it aids feelings of sadness and makes me dwell on my losses. However, I know it does help many. Don’t worry about going on, moping or whatever, people will understand that you are dealing with a life-changing circumstance. Some of the parents of our Mito warriors make celebration cards with pictures of their with angel wings as a tribute at times they feel they should be included and remembered. I feel this is a lovely way to remember them.
Pour your emotions into a project - it may be a journal to the person where you share your memories, perhaps stick in photos, cards, something that reminds you of them, write a letter to them, use paints to express your emotions. Listen to music if you don’t feel ready to come to terms with the raw emotions . Karen McCombie is a children’s author. Her series Ally’s World was based around Ally Love, a 13yr old keeping journals, so that when her mum returned from travelling, she’d know her family’s Adventures. This is a lovely idea and you could do similar for your lost loved ones. tell them your thoughts and feelings about how you are coping and what you are up tom this may help with the loss, especially if it is sudden.
If you feel up to it, look through photos and videos of the person, talk about them.
If you need more specialised help and support, please seek help. Counsellors are trained professionals and can help you work with and through your loss.

“All words after 1 am are wise words.”
-My friend after giving me advice about fanfiction
They met for what they saw
And I didn’t deny it.
I got lost in what they said
Hiding in the vacuum I fell.
But more and more I regret
To pretend to laugh when I cry
Or lied when I say “I promise”
In my soundproof world.
And vague among the secrets I hide
In the middle of the rubble
Of this battered life
For a shattered aura.

A Sense of Healing.
A distant dream,
The weightless shoulders,
A foreign thought,
Heart filled with genuine pleasure,
Distraught emotions swarming in my chest,
A forbidden comfort,
Calamity for thoughts,
Whirlpool of unease and tears,
Bile threatening its movement,
Head spilt in half with the pain that’s growing,
The flowers and green destroyed by the wretched swarm of insects,
Body aimlessly walking in a crowd of selfish,
Navigation and direction beyond comprehension,
Head battling through half eaten corpses,
The pawn on a chess board,
Pushed order with force,
Escaping the nightmares by just a breath,
To only be dragged into the depths of it by greedy hands.
In this place we stay.
Acknowledging that this is where we may die,
underneath the big blue sky.
Though we are unable to help but wonder,
Is this really okay?
Speaking of kindness.
me: huh i asked for writing requests, like, two days ago
me: *refreshes inbox* *refreshes inbox* *refreshes inbox* *refreshes inbox* *refreshes inbo
„Na siehst du. Und wenn du jetzt noch Danke sagst, bin ich das glücklichste Monster weit und breit“, zog er sie mit einem breiten Grinsen auf.
„Ein zweites Mal danke ich Euch, wenn ich am Leben bleibe. Und keine Sekunde früher“, gab Nanouk zur Antwort.
„Diese Wälder gehören mir, ich gehöre dem Winterkönig und du stehst somit unter seinem Schutz. Das einzige, was du zu fürchten brauchst, wäre allein mich.“
„Und das soll mich beruhigen?“
„Ich hatte es angenommen.“
So beruhigend war es wohl doch nicht ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
“i love you.”
“i loved you too.”
I’m afraid of what my tongue might say
Revealing my hidden thoughts I keep at bay
Speaking on my desires of his Adonis
Ashamed and withdrawn for I must be honest
Transmitting silent messages in the air
Waiting on your reaction so I will sit and stare
Then you twist and turn trying to ignore
Your notice of me, I can see you want more
Stunned by a touch electric and warm
Enchanting my mind to race and take form
Hair-raising chills you chase up my spine
My eyes do beg you to pause and look at mine
Hear the waves in my chest’s ocean tides
Listen to a secret in my lips where it still resides
Know it’s for you and promise you will see
It’s okay to lie here, just breathe, and be with me
Where are you now?
I’ve no right to know
It’s cold here without you
I’m naked in snow
Your arms nowhere near me
To keep me so warm
This absent goodbye
Has left me so torn

- 𝐄𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐛𝐫𝐢𝐬:- This is a dark fantasy story which plays with themes I tend to work on all the time. It’s a story about revenge and the true nature of a person being pushed to their extent. Ellowyn being the main protagonist continuously wavers between the lines of selfishness and selflessness. Where demons are ruling along side humans but in a status tied to secrets and hate.
- 𝐉𝐮𝐧𝐞 𝐅𝐥𝐨𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐬- This is my first novel that is drastically different from what I usually write. It’s a YA-Contemporary-lgbtq+ novel mixed with magical realism. It’s a romance story about a guy name Luca who reincarnated and begins to remember his past love. As well as his best friend Skye who’s a new soul learning to love for the first time. And in their last summer before college they learn to define and redefine what love really means to them individually by helping each other.

I hope stars gaze back at us, too.
