Even Beau and Lena got in on the dancing with, the head butler politely asking the Henshaw matriarch if she wished to dance. Flattered by the gesture, Lena accepted, and in an amusing reversal, she was the one to be practically swinging and spinning the gangly majordomo across the floor, despite the impressive height difference between the two of them, and inspiring smiles and laughs from the others.
In what felt like the blink of an eye, midnight was nearly upon them, and so it was time to bid farewell to Gracey Manor-despite his evident excitement about the departure, Dorian still lingered on the steps for a moment, kissing his hand before pressing it against one of the white marble columns, saying a silent goodbye to his family home. He had already bid the staff a very fond farewell, leaving sumptuous tips and gifts as thanks for all they’d done for him and his family (to say nothing of keeping his and Elizabeth’s relationship a secret), and he seemed to look back at the house with a sort of melancholy look in his eye as the carriage took off down the secret path.
Randall too felt a little melancholy, leaving the mansion behind: It wasn’t his home, of course, but he still felt a dull ache in his heart nonetheless as it became more and more distant. It felt a little bit like a second home, considering all the time he spent there with his mother and with Dorian, a feeling only exacerbated by his and his family’s stay these last few days. It was hard to leave it and New Orleans itself behind-for better or worse, it was his home for a long time, and he had a feeling that he would always leave a part of his heart behind.
Still, he managed to set these feelings aside as he took Emily’s hand in his, offering her a loving smile as their carriage departed down the old trade route, the full moon shining a milky white light on them as they rode past thick brambles and dry grass.

Heyyy ! I hope you're doing fine. I was curious about 13 / 23 / 33 foor the writing ask game :3
Heyyy! I'm doing pretty good!
13. Do you outline your fics? How much of a headache would someone get if they just looked at an outline of yours without reading the fic?
I do outline stuff, but it's pretty minimal and I don't hold myself to them so the headache could be there.
23. What’s your absolute favorite trope to write?
I honestly don't have much experience writing, but "you may be a bastard but you're my bastard" is very my thing
33. What do you like writing better: one shots or multi-chapter stuff?
One shots, I don't really have the attention for writing multi chapter stuff
Thanks for the ask!

Hi everyone. I'm writing this here because most of my friends use tumblr and it's too hard to type repeatedly. The vet called back about dexter and very long story short it seems that he has 3-6 months left. I'm trying to deal with this right now. It's hard for me to put into words how much he means to me. I'm considering canceling all of my current commission work because to be honest I don't want any other external pressures I will have to think about it.
Photos of him and a picture of us together that I really like. He loves to eat sweet things (he gets excited when we bake and will bark for us to take it out of the oven even when it's not done. He has chosen cake over meat before when we tested him..!) His favourite season seems to be winter he loves to run in the snow and eat it. His favourite toy is a elephant beanie baby called peanut who he has had as a puppy (he took it out of a basket of our childhood toys and has carried it around ever since) that he is very gentle with and keeps safe treating it like his own baby. ♡ he is very stubborn and affectionate and playful. He turned 13 in March but people are usually surprised to hear that is is old ! People in my family refer to him as the eternal puppy.
Anyways, I wanted to share a little of him, I'm not sure what my mood will be like so please don't take it personally if I take a long time or longer than usual to respond

Aaah looking forward for your post!
For now I am sticking to the karmic loop timeline which currently makes more sense to me
Or maybe 3 worlds theory (main one that ends with WHY, elseworld which is Sukhimvit Swimming, world 3 which starts from BB and to continue from now on)
But I think should ONF continues their content, this whole lore thing is not gonna end lollol
Oh, they totally won't stop,,, I'm sure they know the key to the whole thing is in some obscure detail lol
