It frustrated her, but there was no changing it. He’d been a closed book as long as she’d known him. He wasn’t unpleasant about it, nor was he ever angry with her when she would attempt to persuade him to talk to her, but she could tell by the distant, guarded replies and tired diversions that he was unwilling to have any kind of conversation like that.
Occasionally, she felt hurt by this. But mostly she just worried. And she worried even more during the days she’d come to know were his bad ones: where he spent a little more time than usual lost in his thoughts, gazing blankly into space, and tossing and turning at night, accidentally waking her from sleep and stiffening to motionlessness the moment he felt her stir.
Antonia had thought that this was what woke her up that night. She felt the same unease drift into her consciousness as she blinked, taking in the familiar silhouettes of the bedroom in darkness. However, when she rolled over to curl up beside David, she found him gone. Worry gripped her (she still hated the thought of sleeping alone again, even now) and she sat up abruptly, then saw him at the end of the bed, sitting sideways. The soft glow from the streetlights didn’t do much to light the room, and she could barely see his face, but the way he sat forwards as if curling in on himself spoke enough about what his expression would’ve looked like if she could.
“David,” she called quietly, and he startled.
His gaze met hers furtively before he turned again. “Toni, are you alright?” Evasive, she thought, watching him lower his head to study the floor. He always looked at her when he spoke unless he had something to hide.
She said nothing, just slid in quietly next to him, leaning against him. He gave a small, nervous shudder, fingers fumbling around hers as she grasped his hand. Her head found its usual comfortable spot on his shoulder.
“I’m not the one sitting up in the middle of the night, honey,” she murmured. “And the guy who is has to go to work in a few hours. I think he ought to get some sleep.”
“Yeah, maybe,” he laughed softly. Clearly he was trying to sound light and unbothered, but she knew better, and she recognized the little hitch in his voice that couldn’t be owed to just the quiet tone. She could get a better look at him, too, being this close to him, and could see the glimmer of the dim light on the half-dried tracks of tears on his face. The sight tugged on her heart.
If he were anybody else, she’d ask him what was wrong. She’d try telling him that talking about it would help, let him know she was there to listen. That it was alright to tell her, because she loved him. But she’d tried all of that, and she knew it made him uncomfortable, so she’d just have to think of something else.
Slowly, giving him time to react, Toni repositioned herself so that she was almost on his lap, facing him. He reacted subconsciously before he had time to worry about revealing his poorly-kept secret to her, scooting back to give her room and wrapping his arms around her middle. It was only after she’d been gazing at him for a moment, expression gentle yet serious, that he realized she knew. He bit his lip in shame and started to pull away.
“Hey,” she said, putting a hand on his shoulder and pulling him back. Her other one gently tipped his head to face her again. “Look at me.” Her fingers brushed some of his soft golden hair, tucking it behind his ear, and she let her hand trail down and linger there on his neck as she studied him. He’d given up on his pretense now, she could see, and the guarded look in his eyes had subsided a little, replaced with remorse and embarrassment. She didn’t like those any better.
“Huh?..” He trailed off, as if his mind was stilled by the sight of her this close, mouth slightly open. She delayed only a moment, thumb ghosting over his cheekbone, before she leaned in and pressed her lips to his.
It started off gentle, chaste; she couldn’t be certain what he had the energy for, and had intended only to offer a little comfort to him. But then his hands rose to her back, pulling her nearer, and she tightened her grip on him instinctively as she felt him push back, needy and almost desperate. She tilted her head, feeling the remnants of his last few tears on her own face when she moved back for a breath, paused, and returned to him. Toni let him slide down and take her with him, feeling herself land softly against the blankets, and she put her arms around his neck as a quick, clumsy kiss landed on her jaw, the first of may that worked their way down to her collarbone.
“When I said you needed sleep I meant it, you goof,” she laughed, lightly smacking his ear with the tips of her fingers.
“Too late now,” he said, grinning at her in the half-light, and she was relieved to see a little glimmer of happiness that had woken in his eyes.
“Well, what if I need sleep?” she teased.
“Do you?” His brow creased in worry, and she laughed again. He took everything she said so seriously.
“No,” she murmured, reaching up to taste the softness of his lips again. “Lucky for you.”
“Lucky for me,” he agreed, drawing her back after they parted.

my brother made pizza for us so i went downstairs to get some and was grabbing a glass of ice water to try to balance out the acid reflux this pizza, though amazing, is going to give me.

Had to go back and get the water upon realizing as such.
Welcome to chaotic dumb shit Winn does when they’re tired.
mistakes were made
See kids this is why you shouldn't wait until 10 days before a performance to get your 3-page song down perfectly bc the stress is real
I spent like an hour rewriting a whole damn page bc it had a mistype that messed up two whole ass chaotic measures
Then spent another 45 minutes trying to learn the new version
Then spent 30 minutes working on another spot just to get frustrated bc my dumb left hand won't work right
And I made the mistake of punching the punching bag instead of just
Saving my wrists and kicking it
And I think I jammed my wrist a little

Baby's First Walk Cycle
Posted this to my dA already but figured I'd post here as well whee-
Baby's first walk cycle y'all :" )
Games AU - Winter - First pass redesign
Since I'm lowkey rebooting my stories I have to kinda rework some character designs to fit their new personalities. Winter in the current canon (the Dimension Guardians story, affectionately called 'Plan A') is super hyper and bubbly. She's a Changeling hybrid and is basically three different characters all wrapped up in one, chaotic package.
In the Games AU, she's mellowed out a bit, more calculating and intimidating. She's just a normal Changeling now, Joyce and Thalia (human girl and Changeling fused to make previous Winter) are separate characters.
So here's a first pass at her new design, likely to change between now and when I officially make the Games AU the new canon. But wanted to share for feedback and kind of to show how her design shifts between now and when I make the Games AU canon. : )
Also including her ref for her Plan A design, partially as a comparison. : )
This is Noodles.
He's my Warlock's familiar in DND and we all love and appreciate him.
Anyways first post? I have no clue what I'm doing but that's okay.winterline13
