...Hey glad you could make it. I'm Zeph and this here is my blog. Sorry for the mess. I do hope you enjoy your stay

AU where Thom survived Lioness Rampant:

He leaves Court for many years, back to Trebond and the City of the Gods to hide away and heal, build his magic up pure violet again. Even when he’s well again, he rarely stays more than a few nights in Corus - too many memories.

He does visit Pirate’s Swoop, though. Alanna is startled to hear him laugh with baby Liam (why name her firstborn after her brother when he’s already there?) She isn’t sure he’s laughed that freely since they were children themselves.

Alanna is hesitant, at first, about bring Arram - er, Numair - to Trebond, because no one knows better than her that it’s impossible to predict how mages will get along. They’re much worse than cats. At first her fears seem confirmed; both men are far too used to being the most powerful mage in the room, and it’s hard to imagine a tenser, more stilted conversation. Then Numair longingly mentions a rare book he wishes he’d never left in Carthak, and Thom’s eyes light up as he practically drags the other mage into what used to Lord Alan’s library, since much-expanded. Half an hour later, Alanna wanders off to find more food; neither man notices.

Over the years, Numair and Thom alternate between week-long magic!nerd sessions where they lock themselves in the library and occasionally remember to eat and months of haughtily refusing to speak to one another, generally over the disputation of some esoteric principle of transmogrification. There is no middle ground. 

One time they both got drunk and changed the northern coastline a little a lot enough that it took them three (sober) weeks to figure out how to reverse it.

Thom doesn’t like to get involved in the affairs of the kingdom. Of course he participates in wars - as if he’s going to let Alanna go into battle without backup! - but otherwise, he stays home. He never loses his drive to be famous though, to be the best, so he turns his magic to inventing. That lives on beyond his lifetime, and gives him to change to show off his cleverness. The globes at Carthak University that light when you clap aren’t his, but they give him the idea for automatic scrying mirrors, which can be used even the Giftless. Just breath on the surface and say the name of the person you wish to contact, and their own mirror (they have to have one with the same spell) will light up and grow warm to alert them. Smaller mirrors only do voice, not image, but suddenly Tortall has something that looks a lot like the modern cell phone.

George is the only one who works harder than Thom at finding Aly. They go to the Copper Isles together, and when Kyprioth turns up, Thom nearly blasts him.

I’ll just leave you with a mental image of the best thing we never got: Thom and Alanna back to back; her in golden armor, sword slicing through the surrounding enemies; him in a black robe, hands raised, firing amethyst lighting bolts; both surrounded by a nimbus of purple fire, matching orange hair almost ablaze with it.

okay bedtime for me I think good night dears

hell ya good movie

Holy shit blondey is so fuckin cute 

zephsomething: OC of the day: Okay as I told you about Destiny I should tell you about Taminis. Taminis is like destiny in that he's one of the original elementals who are basically gods. He's Dark Energy. He's basically the opposite of Destiny in a lot of ways. He create chaos when he meddles in things (which isn't often) but out of the Chaos comes order (though he never actually realises that). He's quick to anger and doesn't deal well with people but like Destiny he learned from all the other elementals.

Dude.  That’s cool.  Like a sort of balance of the universe thing going on between them.  That’s badass.  Does he also appear childish or more like an adult?

My oc of the day…hm… Ill do another Bleeder character.  So there’s Max^3.  Technically thats three ocs but they’re a complete set they can’t be separated like George and Fred.  They’re basically genetically identical, but Maxine is female, Maxwell is male, and Max is agender.  They like to tease people over what sex they all are and play “whose the cis one” with strangers a lot.  They’re super close and like to reek havoc together.  They also share clothes and claim to have multiple breast forms and binders so they change the way they present on a daily basis.  So basically their favorite thing to do is laugh at the gender binary and be friends.  Individually they have different personality tropes, Maxine is the leader, Maxwell is the jokester, and Max is the tough one but also the cuddly, snuggly glue that keeps them together.  Also they take care of Juno after her parents die but they aren’t the best role models considering they are 15 year old rebels.

They sound like so much fun. Damn! They’d get along with the twins and their cousin (2nd gen Merge characters). I’ll tell you about them a different day though.
Taminis actually has a lot of issues keeping a form. For the most part he tends to look like a very mixed 20-40 something (of course mixed in this universe means species mixed so he’ll have like wings and a tail and weird coloured skin/hair or horns or all of the above or whatever.) He’s actually quite lovely if he likes you and despite the almost complete lack of shape normally he’s much easier to read than Destiny. Like very obvious in emotions, he just lives away from everyone else always so he’s not good with people or crowds and he hates being looked at

Dude he sounds so cool.  That whole description just sounds beautiful.  I would like to take back my Juno declaration of following Destiny and make her follow Taminis instead.  She’d probably be out of control with her powers but he sounds like a nicer person and a better role model than Destiny or Max^3

He’s actually my favourite even if he is actually the main villain in the series because he more or less managed to create chaos in and around himself sort of because of reasons.
Okay but earlier on, like centuries earlier on. Way before the Merge and way before anything really. Back when none of the species on Terra mixed ever except when occasionally it happened. Anyway way back then I have a story set back there. Taminis meets a girl who’s mixed (I think part Merp part faerie ? Or Sryth Merp mayhap?) and she’s hiding in the forest because no one wants her around because she’s mixed but then she meets him and he looks like everyone’s bred with everyone and created him and she’s like ‘holy shit I’m not alone’ and it’s really fuckin cute

this is fuckin hilarious
