This is amazing!
looked up a random art prompt generator. got a prompt that said “church steeples, opposition, and something else, i don’t rightly remember. i don’t often do detailed backgrounds or not-people art, so this was a nice fifteen minute breath of fresh air. reminds me of kuro. maybe i’ll put some boys in it ?????

A very obligatory intro post.
Hi! I’m Vex–formerly vexing-young-master, currently ladyvexll, vextharu1er on twitter, and whore on ao3. I’m a writer and artist and full-time degenerate. I tend to write darker themes and stay within the dead dove zone (AKA noncon, underage, incest, abuse, etc), so if that’s not your cuppa, I’d recommend clicking off right about now.
I’m predominantly Kuroshitsuji, but lately I’ve been branching off into other fandoms! Here’s a little list that’ll be edited as my interests expand:
Kuroshitsuji (non-kuro content is tagged as nk alongside whatever tags are appropriate)
Yuri!!! On Ice (tagged as yoi)
Boku no Hero Academia (tagged as bnha)
Naruto (tagged as naruto)
Jujutsu Kaisen (tagged as jjk)
Kimetsu no Yaiba (tagged as kny)
Ryu ga Gotoku/Yakuza (tagged as rgg)
Important tags to note if you’re sensitive to certain content:
nc - noncon
dubc - dubcon
sharp and sharper - weaponry
modern romance - kinky/unorthodox/violent (sometimes) sexually charged stuff
vex is typing… - my writing
scribbles - my art
spoken thoughts - (you guessed it!) spoken thoughts
recs - recommendations for fic, art, or general content
…listen closely - music stuff
nk - not kuro
the devil himself - Ciel stuff
the beast - Sebastian stuff
the world’s worst love story - Sebaciel stuff
double trouble - Cielcest
And finally, here’s a masterlist of my works so far!

Hi! First off, I’m so glad for you; best news of the week asdfghjkl 🥲
secondly, I’m relatively new to your fics and read about a fifth of them so far and you’re sooo good at hooking a reader. Even the tropes I usually don’t like, you had me binge reading. Your stuff is so original that you could swap out the names Sebastian and Ciel with random names, and it wouldn’t seem like fanfiction at all. Would you ever publish one of those stories?
I'm quite literally dorking out right now anon! All blushes and squeals and silly faces.
It means so much to me that you're spending YOUR time getting acquainted with my work. And a fifth is a HUGE amount of time!
I'm not great at writing canon, so I'm glad you're able to enjoy the original stuff for what it is. I find my own love of fandom has only been enhanced by the headcanons and AUs created by my peers.
In the future, I hope to use some of my stuff as OW springboards, specifically: Rust, Starseed, Feast, Everlong and 613.
Right now I'm neck-deep in working with Rust - and recreating a completely original Canon for the reincarnation aspect of it. My OW blog is @by-virtue-fall if you'd like to get a sneak peek at what that looks like 💙
Thanks again for your support. You're lighting a fire under my ass as we speak!!!

How is Sebastian in romance with Ciel but not in love?
Was it romantic, between you and Ciel?” Soma asked sharply. “Did you love him?”
Was it romantic?
Perhaps not by today’s standards, but at that time, romanticism focused on aesthetics, on the nature of beauty. And because beauty was a subjective term, it also encompassed catastrophe, horror and morbidity. Light had always been able to accentuate the beatific, but it was darkness that moved imagination to awe.
And that was the very thin line he and his master toed in this danse macabre of theirs. It was a direct contrast to rationality, for who would willingly leverage their soul as a quid pro quo? Who would choose an eternity of damnation for the fleeting satisfaction of revenge? Only the sublime would entangle themselves with a demon and reject the natural order of the universe.
Their bond was chaos personified. Unpredictable. The devil may not lie, but that didn’t mean he told the truth. He may come when you call for him, but the time at which he arrives is of his choosing. He may promise to take your soul as a reward for his service, but it may prove to be sooner if the game ceases to be amusing.
Until he'd been summoned by Ciel, the thought of devouring a soul had never been more exhilarating, more ghastly, more intimate. What could possibly be more rapturous than to absorb his young master's light, to experience him, to feel him pulse from within? To make Ciel a part of him… forever.
Was what they had romantic? Yes. Unequivocally so. Was he in love? “No. I was not in love with the young master. My kind is not driven by such a thing.”
This is what you’re referring to, yeah?
Sebastian’s notion of romance is one that harkens back to the Romantic era, leaning heavily on themes of the Gothic (as seen in Coleridge’s Rime of the Ancient Mariner).
The “Romantics” were also known for imagining parallel worlds to play with ideas of relationships --- like the Dark between Catherine and Heathcliff in Wurthering Heights, or “Love” as seen from Shelley’s Frankenstein.
Ciel’s rejection of the ‘natural way of things’ is romantic in Sebastian’s eyes, in the way that Nietzsche’s notion of ubermensch is romantic. It weighs on the individual’s potential for self-motivation action, for self-creation.
And Lord Byron, who was part of this romantic movement, wrote extensively about Napoleon as an example of this ubermensche. When I read: “Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage” I always read it in Sebastian’s voice, almost as an ode to Ciel...
(those are my two favourite parts: Cantos XXXIX and XLII)
Sebastian also views Ciel as something ‘sublime’, or at least he does his soul. And we learned from Plato that anything that has a sublime quality has great beauty. It’s likely when Seb stopped taking what he considered ‘pour quality souls’
“Romantic” heroes are often seen as individuals who stand at the edge of a precipice, who brave a storm, who walk in darkness into the wild... If Ciel doesn’t personify this kind of hero in Kuroshitsuji... then I’ve misread it completely.
And Sebastian doesn’t take particular joy in his master’s contentedness... it’s his grief, its his pain, his desolation and other extreme emotions that flavour his soul.
This kind of melancholy is often central to the Romantic movement. Psychology as we know it wasn’t born yet, but this kind of extreme in terms of sentiment was quite evident in literature and art of that era. You might even consider Sebastian to be “God” in the same way that William Blake writes the deity as his personality begins to disintegrate in his work The Fall.
Or... you could see it from Jean Jacques Rousseau’s point of view since he wrote heavily during the romantic period. His view of Romanticism was one that stated that humans were ‘naturally/inherently’ good, but that society tends to corrupt them over time. Perhaps what Sebastian sees as romantic in Ciel is that despite having been corrupted by the cult, at this core, he remains a ‘good person’. Perhaps his real game is to see how much he himself can corrupt something that’s managed to maintain an element of goodness after a. his past b. his job etc.
I dunno anon, I’m rambling. But I feel Seb would have understood the Romantics much better than I ever could, and therein lies his ‘romantic’ feelings towards his young master. This (above ^^) isn’t love. But it’s not to say he doesn’t feel anything either.

Bruh I don’t care if Daunte Wright had a warrant. I don’t care that he had pictures of himself flashing a lot of cash on socials. I don’t care if he was smoking weed. What I do care about is how a cop with 26 years of experience mistook her deadly weapon for a taser. How on earth do you make that mistake? Her incompetence costs a young man and father his life and she absolutely needs to be held accountable.

Pale purple bruises speckled the backs of his thighs like constellations speckled the sky. The moments like this became fewer, so when he had the chance, Sebastian savored them. He reached out and ran his slender fingers along his lover's spine and paused at the brand above his hip. Tenderly, he circled his thumb over it.
"I'm awake you know." Ciel's voice interrupted his thoughts, and soon, Sebastian was looking into his deep blue eyes. "Must you always keep your hands on me?"
"You should understand the position someone like yourself puts me in." Sebastian answered.
Ciel huffed a bit with annoyance then he was sitting up, thin legs swinging over the edge of the bed. "I'm going to take a bath." Sebastian opened his mouth and he was immediately met with those blue eyes again, this time they were clouded with annoyance. "Alone, Sebastian."
"Yes, my lord." Sebastian answered.
Ciel stood and strode to the bathroom, not bothering with modesty. He gave one final glance back to the butler, blue eyes meeting his once again, before he firmly shut the door behind him.
Yes, the name Ciel suited him quite well.
