I am nobody,I am everybody,I am me,But I am also not me,I shift each and every day,To me physique is simply a mood,Race and gender are just words,I can be anyone,I am true fluidity,The rain drops between bodies,I jump from form to form,For necessity or on a whim,Constitution is just an art form,Skin hair and bone simply paints on my easel,One day I am a humble man,The next the fairest damsel,I…

Okay I need y’all to come with me on this awful/amazing ride of a thought that I just had. Also sorry for the novel I’m on mobile and can’t add a cut.
I was thinking about Fire Emblem beast units and was thought, “Huh, if/when they appear in future games what animal would they shift into?” bc we’ve already had big cats, multiple kinds of bird, bunnies, dragons, kitsunes, wolves, all that jazz. Then, a small fixation that I have had recently appeared in my brain and refused to leave.
Selkies.
“Ches what the fuck?” you say, “Are you saying you just want Selkie, Kaden’s daughter from Fire Emblem Fates to be a beast unit in a future game? She’s already in Fates!”
To which I say no, sweet user of tumblr dot com, SELKIES.
Tumblr media
(Image taken from Wikimedia commons, oh my god it took me way too long to find an image of a selkie that didn’t have their titties out like I get why they are depicted that way with the context but for fuck’s sake I’m trying not to get my stupid Fire Emblem post taken down. Also dang this image is extremely low quality. Anyway if you’re so inclined Google a picture yourself.)
“Ches,” you say, “What the fuck is a selkie?”
Alrighty, a selkie is a mythical creature from Scottish folklore. Most of the time they are depicted as women, but male selkies are known to exist in the folklore as well. They are often said to have otherworldly beauty. For those who have amazing taste you may remember that they are the centerpiece of the story of the animated film Song of the Sea. Their entire deal is that they are shapeshifters that can change from human to seal by putting on and taking off a sealskin. As a result they can live in and out of the water, but a lot of them prefer to live in the ocean bc it calls to them. They do often come on shore to play around on the beach tho, and this is where the mythology gets a little depressing.
(BIG OL’ TRIGGER WARNING FOR NONCONSENSUAL RELATIONSHIPS IN THE CONTEXT OF MYTHOLOGY)
Basically to return to the sea selkies need their skins, and if it were stolen they would be forced to stay with the thieves. This of course led to some nasty men stealing the sealskins of selkie women while they were having some beach time in order to force them to be their wives, and no matter what happens in the end of the story nobody is really happy.
(OKAY TW OVER)
There are a ton of other details, but those are the basics. But today I am not focusing on forced mythical marriages and the depressing aspects of it, I WANT TO TALK ABOUT A SEAL BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF A BERSERKER.
“Ches, you sentient makeup product,” you say, confused, “How the hell is that supposed to work?”
My answer is...incredibly stupid.
Like for one I think that they would be much larger than the average seal, much like how taguel are much larger than the average rabbit. And if any of you have seen how a seal moves they just kind of bounce around to where they need to go, so these seal beast units would just...bounce...and then hit their enemy in the face...maybe bite them if they can reach it...
Does it make much sense?
I don’t know.
Do I have any idea of how a tribe of seals who need to near water a large amount of time could be incorporated into a Fire Emblem story, especially if one joins the roster of units?
Absolutely not.
But do I think that the idea of a seal bouncing up and smacking a great knight off of their horse with their tail is the funniest thing ever?
ABSOLUTELY.
Anyway their victory pose is the banana pose have a nice day.

New episode on Webtoon! (Click here!)
Some intermission, more flashbacks that I haven't posted here in full, some more snippets about the Three Caballeros.
Till Queendom Come is a project about an Indian Rakshasi who's trying to find her lost heart after the East India Company stole it, a Jotunn who didn't feel like going back to Norway after the Vikings invasions, and the young nephew of the last druid of St. Ives who's now trying to keep on the family tradition on her own in spite of being the wrong gender to do so.
Started as a project set in Edwardian England, born in a urge of sudden irritation about seeing Victoria being romanticised everywhere by a cynical comic artist who majored in English. You can read it on Instagram under the hashtag #oscarpoppins (which was its unofficial title until now and in my mind will always be), or on Webtoon.

So I deleted my imagine called “Recklessness” because I see a lot of people getting backlash for shipping Nico with a female character when it’s obviously stated he’s gay.
In honesty, I feel that they’re correct. But instead I have added to my Percy Jackson Masterlist. There is now a spot for Hearthstone who is from the Magnus Chase series as well as Jason Grace from Heroes of Olympus & makes some appearances in Trials of Apollo.
I hope you can forgive me if I offended anyone :)

Mythologies of the World - Chinese mythology - Chang’e, Chinese goddess of the Moon art
Tumblr media
Chang’e is the Chinese goddess of the Moon in Chinese mythology, the Moon festival or Mooncake festival was held to honor her. According to legend, when the 10 Suns scorched the earth, the Jade Emperor hired an archer, Houyi to shot the Suns down, and Houyi agreed. He shot 9 of them, until only one remained. The gods were pleased and so as a reward they gave an elixir to him, this potion made the drinker immortal. So he went back home, showing his beautiful wife, Chang’e the potion. Curious, she accidentally drank the elixir, granting her immortality, she floated up into the heavens and end up at the Moon and her only companion is the Moon Rabbit aka the Jade Rabbit. That’s why, the mooncakes are baked to look like the Moon and are offerings to her. In the Netflix movie, Over the Moon (ex Disney animator, Glen Keane’s directorial debut movie) , Chang’e is voiced by Phillipa Soo from Hamilton. She is a cosmic diva and is the queen of the fictional city of Lunaria and is accompanied by talking Lunarian mooncakes and flying mythical lions with the Jade Rabbit.  
In my art, Chang’e’s look is based on both the mythical art look and her Over the Moon look

"And on that autumn midnight of (1810), many people stood in the light of torches around the coffin, which was opened before sinking, and watched bewildered the body resting on its bier. A woman of touching beauty in a white satin dress, her cheeks were rosy and she seemed alive. Her delicate body was given to earth. Who was this lady, Here lies a secret of so terrible depth that one involuntarily turns one's eye to the night."

Hi ELF! There's this fic where one of them is like a god or deity i think (it was probably Levi) and the other is finding a place for their pack or villagers if i remember correctly. Eren(?) stumbled upon Levi's temple i think and eren stayed with him for a while. In the end Levi let the villagers stay in an isolated town near his temple. I hope this makes sense I've been finding this for forever 😭 thanks guys!
Is this the fic, Anon?
The Wolf and the Mountain by bfketh
(Rated E, 5,998 words, oneshot, complete)
Levi didn't really care what people thought he was - demon, spirit, or god - as long as they left him alone.
That is until one winter's day, when a snow storm deposits an injured wolf-spirit practically on his doorstep.
(2014 Ereri Secret Santa gift.)
