Awkward timing, perhaps, since you just saw Sabrina’s (lovely lovely LOVELY) fic and I don’t want to take a single tiny thing away from that, but I ended up writing you something, too. It was the only present-worthy skill I could think of!
So random Thorki for you, since you’ve mentioned liking it from me. It got a little out of hand, as such things always do, and a little stranger than I had anticipated, but hopefully still good. <3
Also I was going to give it to you tomorrow (time zones! silly things, telling me it’s tomorrow!) but there’s a chance I’ll be gone, so it ended up having to be today anyway! Silly, mm?
As keeper of the Bifrost and guardian of the entrance to Asgard, Heimdall was gifted with deep sight, sight no mean force could overcome. And so it was that he, perhaps better even then they themselves, knew well the tale of two brothers; such a tale that would surely outlast him. It might even outlast them.
Not awkward at all, Mercy! This was beautiful! I will cherish this forevermore :’)
Om nom nom Thorki. I know its kind of wrong but its just so darn right!! Especially from you <3
Alright, I have a friend. His hours have been cut from work, and he needs a little extra money. He’s a brilliant artist, and he’s willing to draw for you. All he asks is nothing TOO disturbing. This can include smut, he’s pretty good at drawing that. SO, I’m selling his artistery!
He’s given me a very general list to give you people-everything, he said. So I’m just going to list what he’s familiar with, and if it’s not on the list, ask.
- Sonic the Hedgehog and Co
- Mass Effect
- Dragon Age
- Numerous Anime and Manga
- Marvel or DC characters
- Final Fantasy
- Whatever your mind can come up with, basically, if you give him enough directions.
Personally, I’m going to be paying for some cute stony and thorki.
Message me for details, my dude friend would appreciate the help.
One might find
that similarities are best sought
within shadow of difference,
and that bonds might be forged
by heat of shared resistance.
And, as with loss, sometimes gain
can only be appreciated for being threatened,
a crown oft yearned for, suddenly rejected.
And within heart of stress, and within heat of strain,
can steel core be tempered, heat of fire
same as heat of heart. Or heat of desire.
Then, with steel to bear, with mind bent to task,
might there be uprising, or, perhaps,
For ever does light, for being, cast heavy its shadow,
as does shadow, for thriving, make appreciable that light,
so two who ought seek harmony, yet so often find in its stead
savage tempers and cold distrust, face apart, neither to bend
nor bow, neither to scrape knee to other, while they might
by themselves seek to stand the taller.
SHE DID IT AGAIN!
Annnnd more Thunderfrost poetry. Someday I won’t feel the compulsion to put these under cuts. Someday. e___e
Also, my god, the potential for symbolism is simply staggering. I love it. <3
Regardless of whether you ship it or not, Mercy’s poetry is afdafjdk;lj;SFJf;dkjlflkas AMAZING! Her writing is like this too! Just, so MUCH symbolism and all that lovely subtle wit and I am having so many language feels right now.
For once I am respecting her wishes and am not removing the cut but I fully expect everyone to click that little ‘read more’ button. DOOOO IIIIIIT! You won’t regret it. I promise.
I completely intend to post just the actual fic on tumblr tomorrow, for those who prefer reading fic on here, but for now I am just so, so proud. A goofy amount of proud, really.
I should also say I ended up with no energy to read through. So hopefully the hardcore editing process was thorough enough!
Anyway. Two weeks editing time, I don’t even know how long it took to write… and I. Am. Fucking. Done.
Oh god. So pleased right now.
It’s also pretty much time for bed. XD
