okay, in response to the Sebaciel ship hate flying around right now:
Ciel is not a child. sure, he looks like one, and his chronological...
DIRTY (unedited, 16+)
Sebastian never says anything about it, even though Ciel is certain the devil knows; he just whisks the old...
"Toboso shows us a scene which a child appears to be getting fucked."
I can’t imagine ever writing a high-school AU or teacher/student AU. Nothing against the people who do, it’s just not my cup of tea.
badwolfbadwolff also asked for AK, but the dialogue snippet was long enough that I figured I should talk about my WIPs in a separate post. These are the ones I am currently working on:
For H, I’m particularly fond of this bit of dialogue from Unbroken:
As Mr. Anderson droned on about Yeats’s “The Second Coming,” Stiles snuck his phone out of his pocket, sending a hasty text to Scott.
The phone buzzed in Scott’s pocket, but he didn’t take it out. Keeping his hands folded on his textbook, Scott stared up at the whiteboard, nodding intently at the teacher’s words.
Stiles glared at him sideways. “Scott!” he hissed, quiet enough that only a werewolf could hear him. Well, maybe not that quiet. On his other side, Angelica Martinez rolled her eyes.
“Lover’s quarrel?” she muttered.
Stiles flipped her off beneath his desk. Turning his English notes to the side, he started a new piece of paper, scribbling a quick note to Scott.
I really am sorry. There’s a lot going on with me right now that you don’t know about.. I was really upset on Friday. I shouldn’t have taken it out on you, though. Can you please come to my house after school? I need to talk to you.
Folding the note, Stiles dropped it onto Scott’s desk, beneath the open cover of his English book.
“Mr. Stilinski!” Mr. Anderson snapped.
Stiles jerked his hand back so quickly that he banged his elbow on his desk. “Yeah?” he asked, rubbing it surreptitiously.
Mr. Anderson glanced skyward, as though asking for strength. “The center cannot hold,” he said. “Your interpretation?”
All of the eyes in the room turned towards him, except for Scott’s. Stiles twirled his pen in his hand. “I think it means that we all have things that define us,” he said. “Our beliefs. Our identities. Our families. Our friends.”
Scott did glance towards him, then, but Stiles kept talking.
“Those things, they’re like fixed points in our lives, you know? We kind of rotate around them, like the moon orbiting the earth.” He lifted a fist into the air to demonstrate, his other hand circling his pen slowly around it. “But the thing is, life is never stable,” Stiles said, slowly moving his fist away from the pen’s orbit. “The things and the people we depend on, they change. Life is always changing. Sometimes, they don’t even have a choice. And sometimes, we’re so mad at them for throwing us out of orbit that we forget that. But either way, if we can’t change with them, or if those fixed points move so far that we can’t find them anymore, then the center of that orbit just falls apart. And then …” Making a dramatic whooshing sound, he let the pen fall to the desk, miming an explosion upon impact.
