super-midgie asked: Darki chuckled as she took the offered hand for a hand shake. "Pleased to meet you." Her smile was wry and she shrugged her shoulders. "I have a habit of ending up in the strangest of places." She also had a knack for finding many different kinds of people.

“Sounds like the sort of habit that could get you into trouble.” He didn’t sound threatening; on the contrary, he sounded as though he thought trouble seemed like a very good thing in this instance. “You said you were passing through—might I ask where you’re headed?”

super-midgie asked: Darki jumped slightly, the voice startled her. She turned around and gave the blindfolded man a bit of a nervous smile. "Oh, hello." Why did she have to be so awkward? "I'm, Darki. I apologize if I was disturbing you, I got curious as I walked by. I'm merely passing through." She shrugged. "Curiosity killed the cat and such things."

The freckled boy gave an easy grin as he approached, revealing slight buck teeth. He was slight, with wild reddish hair and a long red coat rigged with a pair of odd mechanical wings. “Cupid. It’s no problem, just,” he shrugged, seeming to look around idly. “I don’t tend to see many all the way out here.” He nodded. “Darki. Pleased to meet ya, kid.” He held out a hand to her.

super-midgie asked: Darki was walking along calmly, her hands held behind her back. She had heard rumors of a being that could fire an arrow and hit someone with it and cause them to fall in love. Through all she had seen and heard already on this planet it was one of the oddest things. Still, she wanted to see if it was true. More than likely she suspected that it was.

“Who would you be then, stranger?” Cupid spoke up from behind the girl, watching her curiously.

ghosty-spooks asked: The girl finished the doodle in her book, sighing and relaxing against the blossoming tree. Looking around at all of the beautiful people around her, she couldn't help feeling out of place, and of course, her biggest crush waltz up behind her and complimented her drawing. Blushing wildly, she shifted against the tree as he walked away before yelling out "Not!" and sticking her the middle finger.

“Rude. You’re better off not wasting your affections on the likes of him, love.” A freckled boy in a long red coat swung off his perch in the tree’s branches and dropped down beside the girl. He adjusted his blindfold and seemed to peer over her shoulder at the sketch. “You’re drawing? Not bad either; see, you could do better than him.”

((Hey everyone. I’ve got a bit of news.

I’m thinking of deleting Cupid.
I worked hard on him and I don’t regret all the fun I’ve had on the blog, but the fact is that my attempts at boosting activity have all fallen flat. I’ve only gotten asks from about four people, and while I love them dearly, I was planning to do a lot more with my character and all but one of my partners have left me… Basically I’m not sure if its worth it. Plus, I mean, there’s a Cupid now with a URL crazy similar to mine so I guess I could offer this one to her so she’ll have a proper tag.

That said, I really do want to roleplay and run an ask blog of some kind. I figure I can do better characterization, do art replies, maybe come up with someone people actually want to talk to. Right now I’m considering a genderbent Merida or an AU Hiccup, and I’d really like some input! For the AU I’m considering apocalypse survivor, future/steampunk (maybe a bit like Firefly), modern, shapeshifter, magic user, bookshop employee, coffee shop employee, ghost see-er, sees fairies/fey/mythological creatures, assistant/apprentice to someone like North or Pitch, community college AU, etc. Frankly I’m open to any suggestions for any character from the list of fandoms on my sidebar. I’d really appreciate some opinions as to what I should do!

TL;DR: Cupid may be going soon, so if you want to save him you might want to speak up. Also, it’d be cool if you could help me choose what to do next.))

Light and Dark Don’t Mix



“Why? Love—” he swallowed and pushed himself to use her title. “Death, let me help you. We’ll find a way to let you survive without hurting.”

He flinched as a long tendril of darkness snaked out towards him and he batted it away without thinking.

She shakes her head, those red soulless eyes on him. Death wasn’t even sure she had a soul anymore. She knew her heart was dead; she didn’t feel a thing for anyone, only sometimes when Sophia could get through, and she certainly didn’t use her mind for anything more than destruction. “I don’t want help.” She retorts. “I want you to stop ruining what I do and stay out of my way, or I’ll make you.”

The darkness swirls around her, but there’s also a tinge of light beginning to show at the ends. They stayed on the outskirts, incapable of reaching too close to her middle.

“You’ll make me?” He shook his head. “My role is no less important than yours, I won’t give it up just because you’ve threatened me.” Cupid thought he could see something shifting on the edges of the inky mass, the barest hint of color that struck hope into his heart.

“You feel it, don’t you? The pull from darkness to light.” He reached out towards her, slowly. “Take my hand, red. You can still get away.”

“You know Frostbite?” He was a bit surprised, but then something clicked. “Jamie, you’re Jamie!” He laughed in disbelief, beaming at the boy. “The last believer, you’re a legend! But it must’ve been years, you’re huge now—I mean, height-wise anyway, though it doesn’t take much to beat me, I guess, but wow!” He chuckled, but his smile sank slowly. “What do you mean, after Jack stopped coming around?”

Jamie watches him in amusement as he pretty much freaks out. Jamie was a legend? That was crazy! Jamie was no legend. He was just a kid who believed in Jack Frost. He chuckles with Cupid, but then he looks away, almost having regretted he mentioned that.

More than that, he disliked that Cupid caught onto it. “He just doesn’t come around anymore.” Jamie says simply. “Hasn’t since the Pitch ordeal ended.” The teen shrugs casually, trying to show how much he didn’t care, when in truth, it was the only thing that plagued him night and day.

“Anyway, now I just go off on adventures.”

Cupid frowned, considering the boy. He could see that it bothered him more than he let on, and already he didn’t like to see Jamie upset. He didn’t know why Jack had abandoned his very first believer that way, but he wasn’t happy about it. Come to think of it, he hadn’t seen the winter spirit in years… Coincidence, he was sure; they hadn’t exactly been keeping in touch before. Right now the issue lay with the hint of sadness that wafted around Jamie, which Cupid decided then and there to try to remove.

"Would you like to come on an adventure with me then?" He shrugged, a smile starting to tug at his lips. "It’s high time I had a break from my role, we could go anywhere, do anything." He watched Jamie, taking in the odd attire and curious eyes; he was prepared to like this kid, and if he needed a friend then who better than the matchmaker himself?
