Fandom: Bungou Stray Dogs
Theme: Demon/Priest AU
A refugee from the Civil War, Margaret takes shelter at a church where Hawthorne resides. After becoming friends and close to more, Margaret is involved in a horrible carriage accident that renders her comatose leaving Hawthorne only to pray for her recovery. However, when prayer no longer seem plausible and the doctors ask that Margaret be euthanized humanely, Hawthorne has a crisis of faith and depression feeling lost and guilty. As he begs to make it right, a Russian seeks sanctuary in his church… and offers to save Margaret out of “kindness”…
So, an idea I had for an Au fanfic that I don’t have time to write right now, so I’ll just post art for it. And Yes that’s red in her pupils.
Hope you like the arts >w< I really enjoyed designing that back

To Prologue: Prelude to Dreams
“Come on, Nate. You knew what this was about.”
“No, obviously I didn’t.”
She scoffed, shaking her head and keeping her eyes from meeting his. “Look, it was fun. I enjoyed it really. But, I can’t imagine why you thought there’d be anything in it. We’re just in the same Art Club. You draw good, you helped us win our scholarships and we had a little fun on the side. Leave it there.”
He licked his lips and slid his hand up into his hair, pushing it back from his face as he blinked rapidly. Pushing away the confusion, disappointment, and quite heavy embarrassment he felt wasn’t so simple but the gesture helped. He lifted his eyes to her even though she refused to look at him, to give him attention, to give him closure despite the cruelty of her words. No, he couldn’t blame her. Nothing had been promised.

Nate nodded and said nothing else. He grabbed his bag and his sketchbook and left the room.
“Nate…wait, we’re about to start.”
He ignored her opening the door and heading out into the hall. There was someone standing there as he brushed past but his mind wouldn’t register. That was probably why he jerked when his arm was grabbed and he whipped around with a nasty glare.

Something subtle that flashed between them, almost like a darkening but he was already jerking away. He didn’t even bother to look back at her or even acknowledge that she had touched him. Instead, he made his way down the hall while the girl stood there, eyes keen on him and lips slightly parted with words stuck in her throat. Continue reading
“Dad – ”
“Mom – ”
“I made a friend today…”
“What’s your name?”
“I want to write – ”
“I want to draw – ”
“Let me write for you – ”
“Let me draw for you – ”
Her freckles were black. That’s what caught my eye. I still can’t stop staring at them…
His hair was pretty. That’s what gave me pause. Even now, my fingers itch to touch it…
“Let me dream with you…”
It’s been a while.
I’ve been going through a lot since my last post. Being sick both physically and mentally has put a real damper on my social media posting, but it hasn’t stopped my writing. So there are a lot of projects and things to read coming that I want to discuss.
So! Welcome to the Cerebral Hedonist and here comes an update!!!
