#Kingdom Of the wicked
@merwildandco (@merwild) commissioned by @acobaf on Instagram
"A charge of magic filled the air. Something crackled and a gown appeared. It hung from an invisible source, skirts fluttering. The top was a metal corset covered entirely with thorny vines. Layers of black panels gathered at the hips, and flowed to the ground in frothy midnight waves. Every other layer had tiny smoky gems sewn into it, reminding me of crushed hematite. Glittering black snakes twined together in intricate knots at the waist like a belt."
"He wore a suit befitting his royal station, hands casually tucked into his pockets. A black crown with ruby-tipped thorns sat upon his head. If turned upside down, it would appear to be dripping blood. His clothing was layered charcoal and obsidian with gold stitching. Silk and velvet. If I didn’t look too closely, he appeared more angel than dark prince."

omg I followed u recently & 👀 I am looking respectfully at 'john wick joe au' lmfaoo
Hello and welcome to whatever this is, dear nonners! And please feel free to look as often and as respectfully (or disrespectfully) as you please, I leer at assassin Joe on the daily! I have about 5K of this AU written and it’s nowhere near finished, I’m hoping to circle back to it as soon as some more space frees up in my schedule and my brain (I also may or may not have gotten distracted by two short-ish PWPs that are almost ready to post, one for Mr Wick and one for Joe & Nicky, so perhaps those will provide some amusement as I take one thousand calendar years to write this AU). But! I am very excited to see that you’re interested in the concept, it seems like such a natural crossover - maybe that’s only because I rabidly love both John Wick & The Old Guard, but, whatever, it works, hashtag cinematic parallels!

Alright, could we all just agree that Valerie Broussard is the queen of creating songs that could easily be theme soulmates of almost all books and shows out there?
Yes? Thanks, Bye.

Sometimes when he looked at me, I swore I sensed a beast hiding beneath the mask of skin he wore. It was restless, feral. I had a feeling he kept the monster locked away, but it was never far.

I feel like I should have started this book in October because it gives me Halloween vibes 🧙♀️
My thread won’t be as funny as @sirendeepity ‘s but I’ve made my peace with the fact that she’s the funny friend and I’m the serious boring one

Friendly reminder that Emilia may be walking into Hell in Pride’s dress, but she’s also wearing: Wrath’s red velvet cloak, Wrath’s gold ring, Wrath’s diamond encrusted clips, and a marriage bond tattoo matching... you guessed it! Wrath.

i just want to say super kudos to those of you who write KOTW and TFOTA because writing a character who literally cannot lie but is a freaking wordsmith when it comes to deceptions is so fucking difficult and as a reader I super appreciate the amount of thought that goes into each line. I literally spent a few hours rereading interactions to see what truths and lies were being avoided because this restriction is so intriguing and so fucking compelling to read

Question of the day: Can Wrath physically not lie to Emilia or does he just choose not to?

Emilia and Wrath's bond tattoos
Photos are from @kerrimaniscalco’s Instagram post.
Chapter 10: Out of nowhere, gold light flashed over my arm before disintegrating into pale lavender. A tattoo in the same shade of purple—twin crescent moons laying sideways within a ring of stars—appeared on my outer forearm, burning almost as violently as my wrath.
A pale tattoo had appeared on his formerly bare left forearm. Double crescent moons laying in a circle of stars.
Chapter 13: Before I went to bed, I inspected the two crescent moons within the circle of stars. The ink shimmered like moonlight. Despite the fact it bound me to Wrath, I didn’t mind it all that much. It was delicate and pretty.
Chapter 15: I glanced down at my tattoo, startled to see snakes now twined around the crescent moons, forming a larger circle around them. I’d been so distracted by fear, I hadn’t felt the burning in my forearm
Chapter 20: It seemed our tattoos were transforming once again. Winding around the serpents—which I noted Wrath now sported around his twin crescent moons, too—were wildflowers.
Before my eyes, my snakes were given shimmering, even scales. I didn’t want to think it was beautiful, but it was. Undeniably so. Wrath curled his hand into a fist. I couldn’t tell if it was because of the pain, or because of our strange, ever-changing ink. I decided not to press the issue; I had one more question for the demon before I left on my mission.
Chapter 24: His attention moved across my face, and he took his time shifting it to my eyes, my lips, tracing each curve and whirl of the tattoo my fluttering sleeves couldn’t hide. Wildflowers continued to bloom across each of our arms along with vibrant frangipani blossoms. It must have happened after the spell he’d used to save me
Chapter 25: I was seriously reconsidering my choice to wear white as I tied an apron over my sleeveless dress. I would have prefered to keep my magical tattoo hidden, but there was no way I’d survive the heat, even with sheer sleeves. Hopefully, no one in my family would notice the pale ink, especially if I angled my arm away.
Chapter 26: Wrath tracked the movement, his attention focused on my forearm. Wildflowers twisted and tangled all the way up to my elbow now. I didn’t have to see his arm to know his tattoo was the same.
Chapter 38: I really hated the stupid magical ink that connected us, letting him find me when I didn’t wish to be found. I’d assumed when I broke the spell that bound us together, the tattoo would fade. Apparently some gifts couldn’t be returned.

“I know you won’t tell me your true name.” I trailed my hands down his chest. His intense gaze tracked each of my movements. “But it feels a little odd, murmuring ‘Wrath’ at a time like this.”

Emilia and Wrath calling each other Demon and Witch has the same energy as Manon and Dorian calling each other Witchling and Princeling
