Because I might actually finish it some day. Maybe.
Despite having been exhausted, it took what felt like ages for sleep to return. Abby turned her back to him, but she was keenly aware of his presence just inches from her. A small canyon separated their bodies and the idea of so much and so little space between them was maddening.

In the distant future, mankind has left Earth and colonized a whole ‘nother galaxy full of planets. And they aren’t treating many of these any better. Bowen in particular. One of the first planets to be colonized, Bowen is now little more than a floating dustball in a backwater section of space. Anyone who stops here only does so to refuel, and only if they can’t make it elsewhere. They’ve been abandoned, left to their own devices, to govern themselves. It wasn’t really worked out for them. Various groups fight for what resources remain and more than one person claims to be the man in charge. On top of all of that, there’s rumors going around of people that can make stuff grow. Not farmers and the like, but actually special abilities. Most people dismiss this as just folktales and hopeful thinking. But some people, some of the powerful and dangerous, believe these people exist. And if they can control these people, there’s nothing stopping them from controlling the rest of the planet.

A fantasy setting. Medievalesque, but not generic. A happy couple celebrates their wedding under the star-soaked night of the vast desert, surrounded by their caravan, their family and friends. These are travelers. Wanderers. The entire desert is their home and they know it like the backs of their hands. Tonight is a celebration of love and community. There is much drinking and feasting, carrying on into the wee hours of the morning when the last of the campfires start to burn down.
Their guard is down. Before the sun has started to rise, the camp is attacked and overtaken by a group of bandits. The caravan is taken by surprise. Their guard is down. It is only minutes before the altercation is over. Women, children, even a few men are kidnapped. They’ll look good in the foreign slave markets. Those that remain are dead or presumed to be dead.
This is an ultimate masterlist of many, many resources that could be helpful for writers/roleplayers.

I’m way behind on my fic writing, but here’s another idea!
It merges OUAT with Garth Nix’s Abhorsen series. (I definitely need to reread it before writing…)
Summary: The Old Kingdom and Storybrooke are very different places, one of magic and one of science, and yet they exist side by side, divided by only a wall. In the Old Kingdom, some have taken advantage of the magic and turned it to darkness. There are some who raise the dead, and only one with the power to lay them back to rest. Belle is the Abhorsen, a title passed down through blood and birth and given to those with the knowledge and natural ability to send the dead back to rest and push their wandering spirits past the final gates of death. She didn’t choose this life. While living in Storybrooke, far away from the family and life she’d left behind, she gets a strange visitor. He calls himself Mr. Gold and informs her that her great aunt, the previous Abhorsen, has died and now it is Belle’s duty and birthright to take her place. With that title comes many new things, among them Mr. Gold himself. Centuries ago, Mr. Gold was a demon named Rumpelstiltskin. The Abhorsen of that time, instead of vanuishing him, bound him to a magic ring and his services have been passed down from Abhorsen to Abhorsen. At first, Belle refuses, but when a great evil starts to seep over the wall and threatens to destroy both worlds, she has no choice but to do what she was born to do.
A very good reference for Writers, too. The color of a room, or someone’s clothing can convey emotion or a state of being, or even set the tone for a setting or a situation.
Colors often come with ingrained connotations - they certainly have strong meanings in Asian cultures, and in European cultures they have intrinsically understood meanings.
Red - passion, blood, anger, fire (for example)
This is going in my writer’s journal.
Reblogging mostly for the oscar wilde reference, but also because colors are important.
I really hope none of my english professors see this…because frankly, THE CURTAINS ARE JUST FUCKING BLUE.
I feel like writing a fic of some kind to the Bastion soundtrack. It’s so pretty.
Maybe something western, or steam western.
Maybe that steampunk Firefly idea I’ve been tossing around…
