Catching up with Alan was hard because she had no plan of action for what to do when she drew level with him as he limped determinedly beside another fence.

-

What sort of plan?” Sin asked apprehensively.

-

neither of them even knew how to make a plan, all they had was this driving rage and the need to find Alan, to save him at any cost.

-

She might not know how to plan. But she could act.

-

“Alan Ryves for life?” Chiara asked, making a slight face.

That’s the plan,” Sin told her, and as if all he needed was to be called, she finally caught sight of Alan.

I am so happy. I love repeating words for emphasis and effect and I always figure mostly people just think ‘that SRB, she has a baaaaaad vocabulary.’ ;)

“Thank you,” Sin said, fingers lingering in the child’s blond hair.

The way she was with her baby brother and younger sister was one of the reasons Nick had noticed her.

“Come here, sweetheart,” said Alan helpfully. He knelt with some difficulty on the grass, and the child ran to his arms as all children did, instinctively seeing him as a refuge. He whispered something to her, low and sweet, and Lydie laughed.

“Thanks,” Sin said without looking at him, her mouth a thin straight slash of red.

“You’re welcome, Cynthia,” Alan replied, his voice distant.

Aw, the tags say ‘the first Cynthia’! That was my ship, even then. And of course, as the tiny writer god of that universe, all my ships are canon. ;)

theladymonsters asked:

PS the image used for the summoning circle is from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood which you should absolutely watch

I have watched some. I know I should watch all of it, because I really like the manga. ;)

I love Hiromu Arakawa. She did the cover for the Japanese Demon’s Lexicon and I love it SO MUCH. I have a poster of it in my bedroom.

OK I’M A BIG NERD. I know and accept this about myself.

But what a talented lady!

The Demon’s Lexicon Trilogy by Sarah Rees Brennan
I totally should not be doing something else right now…Stop looking at me like that. It’s been a while since I read these books! But I still love them. I’m sad I couldn’t fit Jamie in so maybe I’ll make another one.
Also I know Mae doesn’t look as serious as everyone else but I just adored the unimpressed look on her face too much to not use it.
Images taken from Ao no Exorcist, Hyouka, Michiko to Hatchin, Noragami, Ergo Proxy, Ghost Hunt and Full Metal Alchemist.

This looks AWESOME! I’d totally watch this. Specially the summoning circle looks just how I imagined.
