Rice on concrete (scattered.)

I fan Pacific Rim, the Marvel Movies, Mercedes Lackey, Tamora Pierce, Tanya Huff, Martha Wells, Terry Pratchett, Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect, Ronin Warriors/Yoriden Samurai Troopers, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Welcome to Night Vale. I'm also an unrepentant World War One nerd. :D I love Art Deco and I want to live in a romanticized version of Chicago that never existed.

Feel free to drop me a line about any of this at any time!

She said, ‘I’m so afraid.’ And I said, ‘why?,’ and she said, ‘Because I’m so profoundly happy. Happiness like this is frightening.’ I asked her why and she said, ‘They only let you be this happy if they’re preparing to take something from you.’

A peryton is a mythological creature with the body of a stag and the wings and hindquarters of a bird. It is said to cast the shadow of a man until it kills one during its lifetime, from then on it casts its true shadow.

For the writing meme, please. :) Jin looks up, pops his welding visor up and returns a nod before going back to work. Cheung walks his bike to the loading dock, lashes a box of scrap to the back of it and takes off for the residential sector of the Old Kowloon. He pulls up next to a grocery store, an elderly granny puttering around inside it with a mop, and parks his ride by a stack of winter melons.

thank you for asking!!!! that spec. part was mostly to establish that they’re constantly checking in with each other HAHA. like nonverbally, they’ll let each other know ‘yo i’m taking off’/’ok i know you won’t be here’ and also kind of a way to give each other a chance to uh, make requests or give each other reminders before they split. since their default is ‘together’, when one of them splits off it usually involves some anxiety on the part of the other two ah…

also i headcanon that cheung had to take on the older brother role real seriously for their adolescence and while jin & hu could focus and specialize, he had to take a wider view and do things like take on odd jobs and scrounge and scrimp and probably bargain for every little scrap they can get. like the work that’ll get him looked down on but fuck it, he needs to put food on the table, yknow?

but in doing that, they also establish relationships with people in the neighborhood who see three little boys trying to scrape by, and who’re always willing to jump into a chore or task to make some change so they kinda build a family from the community (hence why they’re so willing to become pilots to protect it). also the bike’s probably a beat-up old thing that he bought secondhand because the farther he can travel the more he can earn in a day, yo! my headcanon is that he upgrades to a motorbike when he’s older and it’s his first Big Purchase HAHAHA /woops derailed but yeah
