Ignore the pic, I just needed one...
asoiduasoiduasd I LOVE THAT
and you can reject /this/ but i thought of something to add to that [which, can be changed or ignored]. This randomly popped into my head too.
I think, at some point, something happens on a certain level between Elphie and Penn that...kind of sends them apart for a while - they don't talk to each other, they don't look at each other, and they're basically just...its not them broken up, its just them having a spat. Maybe its Penn getting really annoyed/irritated that Elphie /still/ doesn't fully believe that Penn trusts her. Like, he's bared his pain and wounds to her - how his mom died, and some other things - and he's like [again, this can be changed] "What the fuckk do I have to say or do to make you /believe/ me? I trust you, and still you believe that I don't." Maybe that's what has them too grumpy with not talking to each other for a while.
Possibly, Penn's out for a drink, maybe going over things - and he's...idk, wondering why things are getting more difficult or touchy. Elphie keeps trying to call his phone and talk to him, but he keeps ignoring it cause he doesn't want to talk. Elphie being Elphie, stubborn like a rock, she goes to find him where he is [knowing her...she'd put a tracker on his ass XD well, not exactly, but with Penn leaving before she probably asked Amelia to try-hard to use a tracking spell].
Now...um, idk where the cottage would come in, unless...hmm...idk, maybe....it was owned by someone Penn's mother knew? and his ex-girlfriend knew who it was too? [Ooo, maybe the cottage is where Penn took his girlfriend, told her that he was a werewolf and etc?] and maybe, she - now - feels bad that she reacted so badly, but its taken a while for her to adjust to the notion that he's a werewolf. She goes to the cottage sometime, cause its been...idk, abandoned or whatever [idk - or someone else owns it now], kind of hoping she'd see Penn. This town, Penn hasn't stepped into for years or whatever cause he saw it as a bad memory [but not quite like where his mother died, just that there was nothing for him there]. But Elphie uses the spell to track him there, and she just so happens to see him just as his ex-girlfriend hugs him [and she knows how awkward Penn is with hugging, so for some random girl to hug him kind of makes her halt].
And, this is just me, but maybe his ex girlfriend is like GORGEOUS, tall/leggy/perfect - like how people see Megan Fox or whoever. Elphie's already kind of down on herself for being so short and she thinks she has a big ass, and even as pretty as Imogene/Corin are, she doesn't think she's anywhere near as attractive as they are/were, and she feels everyone sees her [except her close friends and those younger than her] as someone that /needs/ protection cause she's so small and dainty-looking. But maybe - just maybe - Penn kind of hugs his ex-back, but in an awkward way, like he's trying not to be super rude or mean [maybe he's kind of trying not to be so grump like what everyone says of him a lot]. However, Elphie doesn't know who this chick is, but he goes inside to talk to her.
Now...um, I don't think Elphie would...go marching up to the the cottage. I know that was in your dream, but with Penn being secretive [like with Mose hiring him to find information out and the girls saying "Oh maybe he works for the mob" and etc lol, she's starting to get wonky on if she /does/ trust him - but part of it is still about how she very much weighs her flaws heavier than her positive attributes] she's kind of wearing down her spite. But Penn goes back to see Elphie, wanting to see her after their several days kind of avoiding each other. Yet, they have another fight - its not so-much screaming at each other - but when Penn kind of wants to talk, she just seems...at a simmer angry [not screaming furious, just that she's tired of wondering]. Like, maybe he says…
"Can we talk"
and Elphie shrugs, not looking at him, and says “You want to talk to /me/? Odd, you very much seemed to walk to chat with that blond leggy thing” and its bitter and snippy, but when she says ‘blonde leggy thing’ she sounds…a bit jealous.
Penn understandably could say “Are you following me now?” kind of wondering if /she/ isn’t trusting him anymore,
and Elphie responds with “For most it would be paranoid delusions, but with people trying to kill me of late- -“
he interrupts her like…“You honestly think I’m trying to kill you!?”
but Elphie looks at him like ‘do you think I’m that fuckking stupidd?’ but rolls her eyes and says “If I honestly thought that, pretty sure swat-team six would have janked you by now” as a joke to what she calls Amelia and etc – the Death squad that fuckks shitt up XD – but maybe she adds on “You’re right though, I don’t trust you – at least not people that half-inconspicuously get pay-offs or something from our bloody DADA teacher.”
Idk what he’d say next, maybe something like “You’re having me followed/stalking me??” or “Do you have to be so damn nosey?” or “What, we’re not allowed to have /any/ secrets?” OR, and this would make Elphie wanna hit him like what was in your dream, he says something like “Not all of us have inexhaustible funds provided by a billionaire grandmother and our rich parents. Some of us have to do things the nod-so-honest route, and be secret about it, cause there are those of us that don’t have anyone to come in and fix things when we screw up” or whatever he’d say – idk, I’m just spitballing.
So Penn says whatever, and it makes her wanna hit him, but he does that – grabs her wrists and stares her down – and as iasudiosad upset/frustrated/annoyed as he is/should be, he’s curious as to why every time he’s near a pretty-girl, Elphie gets/looks jealous. Maybe he says “Do you think I’d cheat on you?”
and Elphie looks at him, kind of defeated, saying “Maybe I just don’t really know why you’re with /me/. Okay? I’m fat, and stumpy, and I’m not pretty. You hear it from enough people, and its pretty impossible to ignore. Besides that, whenever I try to do more than kiss you, you’re stiff as a board – and that’s really not meant sexually because /hell/, I’m probably not sexy to you anyways.”
And…idk, maybe this makes Penn laugh, and she looks confused, and he says “Is that what all of this is about? You think that I don’t trust you because you think you’re /ugly/?”
She doesn’t want to answer that, but she looks at him “Looking like a hit-man for the mob doesn’t really add to the positives there – neither does letting an insanely sexy girl hug you and you go inside a secret cottage out of the way of everything.”
He rolls his eyes? Clenches his jaw, trying not to say/yell something? But as he stares at her, he fishes a ring out of his pocket and holds it up, then he tells her who that girl was [ignoring the whole mob-thing/Mose thing, cause I think by now he’d know Elphie’s paranoia wouldn’t go so-far as to think up something insane like that XD or so something so corny] but he says what /that/ ring is for [the one that he’s holding in his hand], but he says –what you typed for the dream about the ring- but running into her was a coincidence, it was the place he’s concerned with, like how it was with his mother’s grave – just an old place with hard-memories. I don’t want to make Penn say something insanely corny, but…idk, maybe he says something in a /Penn/ way bout how he thinks she’s pretty, or he loves how small she is – maybe why he gets stiff in his arms/chest when they’re making out, or /whatever/ he would say to kind of get her to knock-it-off with her thinking that she doesn’t believe Penn finds her pretty at all or whatever. Idk. But he says something about what /this/ new ring is for, or…idk, and he rolls his eyes at “I know you get annoyed when I get/buy you things because you think I need to save money- -“ whatever he’d say.
Right now she is trying SOOOO hard not to freak out, or yell at him, or get weepy or get mushy, but she doesn’t resist when he puts the ring on her finger [maybe even turns a little red if he kisses her hand or kisses her on the lips] but maybe he adds “I want /you/, so…you need to believe me when I say that [again, in whatever way Penn would say it” haha – then maybe this is when she asks /why/ he get stiff in the arms/chest when they make out – and he gets a little tense, explaining to her /why/, but she kind of looks at him like “I may be a virgin, but I’m not Mother Theresa…” with a brow raise like /I will hit you if you think I’m frail, fragile, porcelain little dolly/ or whatever XD but she gives him this look like ‘dude, relax. You’re making this so much more awkward than it needs to be’ but she wraps her arms around his neck and gives him this long kiss, [and, I see this going down in her bedroom, cause no one blatantly walks in unless its Glinda or Annise – it maybe Imogene’s room, but its /Elphie’s/ now and she has that dammn thing spelled XD]
Okay, so it would end one of two ways – maybe they end up making out and it’s the first time he’s not all ausdiousadasd ‘control yourself’ but they don’t have sex, its just him being not-so-awkward about it, cause he’s got the sense ‘okay, she’s not apposed to sex but its not the right moment’. Or…well, I’m guessing you know the other option XD
Side-note though, in the future, Elphie is growing to – instead of being snoopy, annoyed, angry or screaming at him about him not telling her the truth about whatever – she sighs, and gives him this “I don’t like that you’re not telling me something” but it /is/ a trust, however, cause she says “/Fine/” in a way that she’s trusting him enough to be oblivious to what is going on that he’s being quiet about, and it’s a /he’s trusting her to trust him – to not let it get between them/ kind of thing. But some of this is actually kind of…playing-against Penn in the way of – he doesn’t see himself as a teenager, hasn’t felt like one in forever, but she /is/ treating things like their teenagers even though they’re dealing with some heavy-shitte; obsessing over a lack of vanity (thinking herself ugly, and that Penn is asdioasdafuckable who could get any girl he wanted – cause it doesn’t enter her head very well that being a werewolf is so ‘taboo’ still, cause…/look at Corin, girls still wanna fuckk him and he’s been a werewolf since forever/ XD), thinking all these other girls are prettier than her and that Penn is going to find someone else whenever he leaves, and…I think its maybe giving Penn a slight glimpse of /why/ Elphie feels the way she does about herself, but in a way that he understands and maybe – once in a while running into people in town that he tries to ignore – that…Imogene fights with Nymie [dude, I have a story planned for that…which I’ll write below…] and Corin is SOOO covered up all of the time/most of the time to hide his scars, that they don’t think insanely highly of themselves either. Self-loathing, even in mild forms, is a humbleness that they have.
Idk, I started to spiral off at some point but hopefully it makes sense somewhere in there
Okay, so, I thought of a Vinny story a while back and I keep forgetting to message you.
So, Vinny looks sad – maybe its his birthday or its Nymie’s birthday or /whatever reason/ and Vinny is…just kind of tired of Nymie /not/ being there. He’s disappointed, not angry like Godric, that Nymie just doesn’t seem to care. Yeah, I know he sees Amelia above Nymie, but he’s kind of tired of throwing on a face when she /does/ show up. He’s basically an adult/is an adult as far as most are concerned, and he tries not to hurt Nymie’s feelings, but he wants Nymie to decide /here or there, I don’t want to keep waiting on you/ BUT he doesn’t really know how to say it, or how he would even be able to say it to her [again, reminder, Godric isn’t amnesiac just yet, cause Lizzie hasn’t been on in forever and I want to get more doucchee-Godric out of this XD].
So Imogene’s talking to him, saying that he needs to be open with Nymie as to how he feels. Its Imogene, so she’s saying it more like /Vinny needs closure/ or something to help Vinny along with something that is a blockage in his life. So he talks to Imogene, and then at some point talks to Nymie. Imogene sees Vinny again, and asks how he’s doing, and he says he talked to Nymie and that /she appeared to take it well, but I’m not clear on what she said/ but it’s a day or two, or whatever, when Nymie just goes nuts on Imogene. “WHAT THE FUCKK DID YOU SAY TO HIM?” and Imogene doesn’t get mad often, obviously, but they’re just YELLING at each other [probably in the Manor]. Imogene says something like “Don’t EVEN go there. Do you even know about Katherine” and Nymie goes “What the hell does my son have to do with Bianca’s daughter” like – she rather forgot or is oblivious to Katherine dating Vinny, just to show how disconnected she is.
But you hear Imogene swear – this is Corin rubbing off on Imogene for a moment – at what Imogene sees as Nymie showing sheer stupidity, and Imogene is like “OHMYFUCKINGGOD, are you that big of a numpty you dumbasss? They’ve been dating for a long time! FuckkingMerlin, what is wrong with you?” and that’s when Nymie slaps her – and its this shock like “ohhhh shiiiiit” and there are obviously people hearing this fight – cause it’s a blue-moon when people actually here Imogene openly fighting with someone for everyone to hear.
There is this looooong pause, where Nymie is O_O and Imogene is just kind of staring at her with this mixed expression – cause, Imogene’s NEVER hit a family member [smacking Dorian on the back of the head doesn’t count lol] no matter what they’ve said to her [um…Gen /is/ family, but I wouldn’t say “close” family – like 1st cousins, siblings, parents, aunts/uncles, etc] – and no one is sure what is going to happen. But, in a split-second, Imogene right-hooks Nymie in the jaw, and doesn’t do more than that, but she looks at Nymie, and says “My daughter’s almost died several times, and so has her boyfriend – and so has several other people in the last few months, /Nymphadora/, and you don’t even fuccking know any of it. You don’t know what’s happened last year, or the year before, because you. Don’t. Know. A. god. Damn. Thing. Call me nose, call me perfectionist all you want, but I’m both of those things because. i. give. A. damn. About the people I /claim/ to love. I don’t know what the hell happened to make you this way, but I never stopped loving you…until I didn’t think you really deserved my love anymore.”
And this is where you see Nymie just…on-edge with this fear and sadness in her face even though she’s got a huge mark on her jaw/cheek or whatever, which will form a bruise later, but the look Imogene is giving Nymie is one that Bane /knows/ he’s seen when Imogene ends up in the same-place as Jude. It’s a hurt, upset, angry, disappointed face that just says /she’s tired, and she can’t deal with ___ anymore/. “I love Vinny. He’s my nephew, and whatever he said to you, was what /he/ wanted to say. I don’t put ideas into his head, that’s what you’re doing – that is what Godric tries to do. Vinny’s given up on Godric, but I wished so much he wasn’t going to give up on you. But I don’t blame him if he has…because I have. We’ve never been twins, and I think it just grew more obvious when Yvaine died, and solidified when Grams died.” And its been ever-so-slowly noticeable that Imogene goes from angry to just hurt and upset after she punched Nymie, and Nymie is silently-crying, because as much as they fight, there was this…common thread that was like a string near the breaking point between them. “I only have one blood-sister- -and her name’s Glori.” Imogene’s voice breaks and she has some tears going down her face. And Nymie goes to reach out, cling to Imogene/whatever, but Imogene shys away from her, holding up a hand like /don’t, okay, just don’t/.
Corin heard ALL of this, but he /knows/ by now when not to get involved with certain fights Imogene does have that he is aware of. He knows how much Imogene just, keeps trying to forgive people and not be an angry person – and even aside from his annoyance/dislike of Remy and Nymie [in how he sees her behavior as negligent – cause, dude, Kasper is Corin’s little brother and Kasper is Vinny’s best friend, even /he/ is aware of what’s going on with Vinny to an extent. Corin is also friends with Bianca too, so he knows some of what is going on with Katherine too], for Imogene to say what she did to Nymie is breaking off apart of herself that is gonna stay broken whether or not there is any sort of reconciliation. That’s why Corin hated/hates Jude – even before Imogene and Corin started dating, yeah Corin had a thing for Imogene – but he’d be a giant diccck to Jude on the grounds that /dude, she’s a sweethearted and etc, and you’re not all over that – are you fucckking retarted/ cause Jude doesn’t ever really do PDA at any time with anyone, and Corin barely keeps his hands off Imogene XD. But Imogene’s known Jude since she was a baby, she’s obviously known Nymie since she was a baby – and for Imogene to let-go of something deeply-rooted in her life like that, he knows she’s doing it cause she’s sick of being hurt cause of how much she tries to want to see them change and find a way to love them in an easier way.
Idk who-all hears the fight, but I think at least Vinny should be there – somewhere – even if he’s not directly in the next room or whatever [there are vents in the house, like in the halls…idk, but he at least hears parts of it] but Nymie leaves, and Imogene leaves too [but Nymie aparated away] but Imogene makes a motion that she doesn’t really want to talk to anyone, even Corin, right now. But Vinny finds Imogene by the lake [which she 99% of the time refuses to go near] and she’s got her make up all smeared, but she looks at Vinny and says in this broken voice “I’m sorry, sweetie” but her tone indicates like she’s blaming /herself/. Like she blames herself for how Nymie turned out, that maybe if she was more hands-on with Nymie, things would have been different. But she says “I shouldn’t have remotely tried to change her. I just wanted her to see what I do in you – I just wanted her to understand…at least a little, about everything – but I wanted her to see you, and even your bratty brother, the most. Cause I think everyone deserves that, even if they don’t have parents. Someone’s got to see it.”
Idk how Vinny would be feeling, but maybe this reinforces this feeling of “I’m not the one screwed up” cause as there are these people in his life that think he’s absolutely flawless in his dorky, cute way, and even if he didn’t really count on Nymie much to show it at all. Its just something that’s put to rest. Now Nymie is NOT going to die or kill herself or anything, I want some characters to kind of be…burned-their-bridges but not die – that they have to live with these screw ups and what has resulted from it [like Gen – Niki may talk to her a tiny bit more than in her teens, but she speaks to her more like…she’s that aunt you don’t really talk to much cause you’re awkward around her cause you don’t share any common interests] but maybe I’ll write something with Nymie talking to Vesper or Bane, about how much she knows she’s screwed up – and with Imogene, /she won’t forget it/. That she admits to only-ever being scared of losing her twin sister, and she /just did/. But she’s talking to one of them, and she’s a bit drunk [not sluring her words, but its to take the edge off] when she puts her cigarette in her full shot-glass, and asks for their help, even if she believes they’re going to say no. she can’t ask Imogene for Help, cause Imogene won’t help her – won’t trust her to stay on-track.
But there is more to what’s going on with Nymie. Art is her main-thing, but because of everything, she hasn’t painted or anything in YEARS. She’s been too screwed up to make anything work that’s of-quality. But she’ll sober up, quit smoking – no drugs of any kind – and as much as she used to mock Imogene for it, Nymie starts to write letters – one to each person; Imogene, Amelia, Godric, Vinny, Bane, and Vesper – cause its never really been about how Remy or Glori saw her, its always been her preverbal other-half, the ying to her yang, and…that is part of Nymie’s problem. She cares about Imogene more than her other siblings that she doesn’t yet take into account everyone else being hurt by her actions.
I know this is heavily centered around Imogene and Nymie, but the after-effects will spawn outwards as time goes on. The letters she writes to Vinny – whether or not he reads them [and you know Amelia just stores the ones written to Imogene away instead of giving them to Imogene (who would just burn them)] – and how Nymie treats Bane and Vesper, how she’ll eventually try to involve herself in the lives of her future grandchildren (a little or a lot at the will of Godric and Vinny), and her taking with her this…acceptance that has taken forever to click until she literally hit rock-bottom, that Imogene has always had. That Vinny is this awesome boy, but Nymie’s never seen it/paid attention enough. And blah blah blah. But Nymie starts to paint again, and starts to selling them, and…I think she’d take a lot of that money and try to save it up for a college fund for her grandkids or whatever – something to say she was thinking of her boys.
Nymie and Imogene won’t be close, just like Gen and Aella aren’t anymore. They may be in the same room, but there’s like this polarization – like with magnets – that keeps them at a distance, like they don’t know each other exist. Corin doesn’t get into it with Nymie or Remy anymore [and I think Remy – after hearing what happened with the twins – would try to get more-involved with his sisters’ friends, so – and I have no plans – I see Remy talking to Vesper, Bane, and some others more, and ending his quarrel with Corin].
Anyway, long long stuff, and I won’t get upset if you reject stuff lol
