It's #shipwars Sunday for #fantasywipaugust 🙌♥️ Who do you think people will ship in your WIP?
The cast is very small for my #beautyandthebeast retelling, so there aren't many characters to ship together outside of the main couple. Hopefully the readers ship them, otherwise I'm in trouble. 😂
And isn't this artwork gorgeous?? It's by #liigaklavina 🙌 This is her interpretation of Beauty and the Beast, which I'm absolutely in love with. 💙 For those who were wondering what my Udyr looks like, this Beast is a little similar to my Udyr in some aspects. Like this Beast, the Udyr has antlers, as well as a more human-ish figure overall. Though my Udyr's face is a bit more troll-ish/deformed in appearance, and he's got quite the crooked spine, to highlight a few of the differences. But this Beast is just wonderful. 😍
I highly recommend you check out her Instagram and DeviantArt! 🎨🖌️ (she also did East of the Sun West of the Moon illustrations!!)
Back to today's prompt, do you have multiple ships in your WIP? Which ones do you think your readers will ship?
As I stand on this street's corner
and watch these two roads meet
I suddenly feel a lot of peace
Maybe, it's because my feet
lies on the intersection of two
distinct paths merging at the
point of vulnerability
Maybe, because it's a reminder
of you and me and that
blissful bond we once shared
Without caring about the world
how my arms used to drown you
to shelter you from the cold
Two souls kept warm
by each others' company
Two hearts dancing in
the rain playfully
Two minds with the
same thing in mind
You want me to be yours and
I want you to be mine
I don't know maybe, I'm crazy
Maybe, time has finally up-played me
Maybe I've stopped seeing
beauty in the little things
Maybe I've stopped appreciating
the gifts that life brings
Maybe I'm over my head
Maybe, I just miss the familiar
contours of your body and
those colorful sheets of your bed
I don't know maybe, this is normal
Maybe I've stopped being myself
after you left, maybe this all is a test
Maybe, I failed and I
couldn't clean up the mess
All these things that
I've typed up in my mind
I don't want to tell you
Maybe, I fucked up and
I won't admit it, maybe
I'm a coward
Seems like I've got all the
time in this world,
Maybe I should do
something about it
I mean, every minute without
you feels like an hour and
every day like an year
Maybe, I'm a fool for
distancing myself from you
Maybe, that's why, I couldn't admit
that I love you, because, for some
reason, I couldn't accept that maybe
You might have loved me too

➡️ Swipe for a poem 🌸 I definitely had a 'flower' phase and still love some of my poems that came from it. One of the hardest things about writing is not loving your own work, being afraid of what people think. If you're writing your first book and feeling super scared...your stories, your poems, your memoirs are worth writing. And I promise you, some day you'll be so happy you did it. Finally publishing Screaming Wings after many years of writing only for myself was probably one of the scariest things I've ever done. We are all human and the fear of rejection and negativity is real. Write for you, enjoy it, it's worth it, embrace your ability to do it. Whether one day your book is a success or not. You still did it, and remember, success is subjective. For me it was actually holding my book in my hands. A book I wrote, from my own mind and my own feelings, I did it, and I don't care if you like it or not. 🌸
Been years been years since Ive pulled her through,
Been years since Ive seen her smile.
Been years since Ive served as her refuge,
A place she comes to hide and cry.
And years of effort all not in vain,
She reaches out yes! End of her dismay!
And I, her solace no longer in need,
By her window for months wait and wait.
She's come back! That dimpled face,
Brightly lit, her mind's as clear as day.
Ooh the conversations now we'd have,
Of the happy song bird and gleeful children.
She's come in, clad in pink,
I rush up to her, she pays no heed.
Moves down the hall, I'm in shock, my eyes teary,
My old friend I'm here! joyfully I scream.
A moments shudder, a look of alarm,
She bursts out 'no! I can hear her!' As she runs for comfort, this time not towards but past me, 'My Dear friend what's wrong', I approach her as I plead.
But all she does is clasp her ears as tight as she can,
Digs into her mother's lap,
As she whispers 'It's okay my child, it'll be fine'
Remember what the doctor said, your strong blot her out of your head '. No longer cheerfully acknowledged by her or her parents,
Confused I go up to the window where we' d meet.
Pacing about trying to find the reason of that horrendous scene.
No answer in sight, I gaze out of the window, sigh the window.
She comes back, I make another move,
Her body shivering, trying, but what for?
Every attempt to gain her attention, every pill she pops in,
Drives her further and further away,
It's been weeks since she's returned,
She's genuinely smiling now more than ever.
There are so many kids about the room,
Yet I'm in a corner unnoticed by them all.
I pat ones shoulder,
Smile at another,
All in vain.
Each day passing day a burden, Im weary now, I'm weary.
I look again outside our window,
Mr Smith's looking out his, his wife with God now.
He looks at me, a peaceful smile across his face,
As he mouths 'you've served her well my child, you've served her well'
No longer that child at that window,
A being with a painful realization,
I let loose of all strings attaching me to this world.
As a light guides me, Mr Smith on my left, somewhere, somewhere far from home.

Stained glass at my local #ymca Seemed appropriate for a Sunday morning 🥰 The sun was coming in through the front of the building and I happened to glance in a dark room and this was all lit up.
1+1=1 always and forever. 💙
