    “Let me make a contract. I shall give you my life after my death. I would like the compensation now.”

    1.0  – Fated Meeting

    The light peeking through the leaves of the tree was somehow blinding. Normally, the sun was naturally blinding, but the ‘somehow’ belonged to the fact that only in this small greenhouse area was there any sunlight. It was artificially created by magecraft to give a false sense of the outside world, but the large tree that stood amongst the various plants, reached high into the heavens that did not truly exist.

    Yes, magecraft, humans’ technology and science that preserved magic to the modern age, allowing them to create imitational feats by means of mystery. The meaning of true magic had died long ago with the Age of Gods, and so humans, or magi, those who still had connection to the mystery once known as ‘magic’ preserved it’s life by replicating it as ‘magecraft’.

    All around the green area of roses, lilies of the valley, Irish moss, bloodroot and so many others there was a strong sense of magical energy flowing through all of them as if none were cultivated normally. The biggest energy source was centered in the glass dome towards the back, it stemmed from a northern catalpa tree. The dark trunk thick and tall, its green leafs spreading out with its various branches, coated in white catalpas that gave it a snow like appearance.

    With a hand, he blocked out the false sun, staring at the domed glass of green patterns in kaleidoscopic colors. There was nothing but light chirping, the sounds of bugs in an orchestra and the occasional rustling of leafs from the air condition.

    The scene was straight out of a fairytale.

    A fairytale not meant for him. The reason for Shirou Emiya’s visit was not to witness the astounding and false beauty of this area. He came here for a purpose.

    Not too long ago, he was greeted by a familiar of a magus that had a message for him.

    “My master, Camenzind, has a wish to meet you. It is a matter regarding the creation of the New Holy Grail.”

    Pinching the bridge of his nose, he knew he shouldn’t have gotten worked up over this. It could’ve just as well been a hoax, and still, he couldn’t risk it being true. A scene from long ago flashed in his mind, a fire, a black moon in the sky, and he shook the foreboding thoughts away. That was long past.

    It was not his job to find Holy Artifacts, that job belonged to the Church. But as a Hero of Justice, it was his duty to ensure a tragedy did not come from such an event as a new Grail being created.

    Letting out a quiet sigh, he approached the double glass doors. It had been an hour and a half since he arrived. Dr. Camenzind, the magus who summoned him, was busy in surgery and so he was told to wait around. He thought he would find some information if he looked around the building, but searching this hospital contained zero information regarding magecraft, in fact, all of the staff seemed to be regular people.

    All they could talk about was how great of a doctor Camenzind was.

    Upon request, one nurse informed him that Camenzind had been an instructor at a university some time ago. This information he found useful. The man taught at the Clocktower years ago—back when Shirou was attending the Clocktower. It was how the magus knew him, yet Shirou Emiya contained no memories of this ‘Camenzind’ person. This all was troublesome indeed.

    As he was about to exit the greenhouse, a small squeak and cry of pain stopped him in his tracks. Shifting lightly, he turned to the catalpa tree. In its shadow, he saw a baby bluebird crying.

    The poor creature, too young to fly, sat in its misery, its left wing draped over the cobblestone path, broken; Shirou went over to the chick. There was little recognition in it for him, so he knelt down and scooped it up to get a better view of the damage. The chick cried when he examined its wing. It was lucky the wing was the worst damage it received.

    Lucky for the chick, it was in a hospital. Someone here would know what to do. Looking up around the glass windows that showcased the outside, he saw many medical staff going on by their daily lives leisurely.

    “Let’s get you some help,” he muttered to the feeble chirps of the chick.

    A sudden presence stopped him in his tracks.

    The presence was strong, gentle and warm, he didn’t understand what it was—a calming aura that seemed out of place. A tranquility that overpowered the fear and anxiety accompanied by the comings and goings of a hospital, it was sunlight on a breezy day, soft in form that caressed his soul in whisper like touches, his soul was set in a soothing spiral that he could only describe as a hopeful serenity that was out of place.

    Looking up to see the cause of the change, he caught his breath at the sight in front of him.

    Long blonde hair cascading down in curls fit for royalty like golden waves of an ocean tainted by sunlight, her bangs slightly framing her heart-shaped face that fell over her shoulders. A large black bow, which contrasted greatly against her milk white skin, pulled her cascading locks back. Her quite voluptuous and feminine figure was dressed in a doctor coat over a black skirt and white blouse tied with a black ascot loosely around her neck.

    Perhaps the most captivating feature of her was the navy blue orbs that twinkled with stars. It was a mirror to a night sky that had yet to exist, and yet the blue of the eyes reminded him of a promise from ages long passed.

    “Oh,” she muttered quietly in sounds of bells chiming. Her pink lips frowned at the sight of the bird that had her complete attention.

    Blinking, his silver gaze followed her motions as she folded her hands in her lap and knelt down in front of him. It was only then that he realized time seemed to have stopped, and now it had resumed with his heartbeat in irregular motions.

    Shifting his gaze away from her because the beauty of her presence made him slightly bashful, he focused on the crying chick where he used his thumb to rub its head lightly in a sign of comfort.

    “It fell out of the tree,” he told her quietly.

    To his surprise, she reached her small hands over his and he stiffened at the warmth of her touch. “Here, let me.” Her touch was smooth, radiating a gentle fire that made his skin shiver pleasantly.

    This angel was a homunculus. He could tell from the magical energy she radiated. Her long lashes lightly blinked over her vacant stare that focused on the enclosed space between their hands. A soft blue glow encased the area. It was only when the bird’s chirping changed did the woman pull away, smiling fondly down at the creature.

    The baby bird sat up and flapped its now healed wing, hopping lightly in his hands.

    “There! Bye-bye, baby bird~” the golden haired homunculus stood up and waved at the chick. Her smile was radiant.

    So enraptured by her beauty, he failed to notice her leaving until she was at the doors. He didn’t get a word out to say anything to her. To give his name, ask her hers—no more than that he needed to ask her why a homunculus was here. It should be obvious with Camenzind being a magus, yet the entire hospital seemed to be made up of only humans.

    Too late, the doors opened, and she began to step out.

    Rather than stop her or call out, he was only able to express his gratitude.

    “Thank you…” he muttered quietly but doubted she heard him.

    Tbh, I probably won’t really write burial at sea Elizabeth often.   Maybe only as requests?  -- I just have such an attachment to main story Liz.

    Hello young man, may I request a mood board for an eastern bluebird with themes of dull blues, angels/fallen angels, protection, and forests? Thank you! - 💙

    I can do that for you! One moodboard with themes of dull blues, fallen angels, protection, and forests, coming right up!

    I used a regular picture instead of a drawing because I'm not very good at drawing animals yet, I hope that's alright. I used shields for the protection theme because I wasn't able to come up with anything else, but let me know if you want anything changed!

    🛡🌳🪶

    🌳💙🌳.

    🪶🌳🛡

    I had an exciting Friday and Saturday morning - the Bluebird babies fledged! I sat all Friday, thinking that would be the day, and when my DSLR battery died down and I decided to go in to make dinner at around 7, they decided to go for it lol The first two were smooth and fast, third and fourth had some issues, and number five spent the night in the box and fledged early today. They all looked nice and strong! I emptied the box, scrubbed it to get rid of the poo, dusted it with foodgrade Diatomaceous earth, added some more kerfs outside for easier grip and some more vent holes and rehung it. Here's a clip, it's longer but it shows them all. I hope to see them soon again - usually the parents start bringing them to the yard two weeks after fledging.

    Here’s that Twitter thread translated + quotes. No pics bc lazy (: Hope this helps!

    Re-reading the lyrics of "Daylight," and especially the verse that mentions the "Bluebird," I wondered several times what Harry's sources of inspiration might have been and why he chose this particular bird.
    Aside from Louis
    The Bluebird (Sialia, in Italian) over the years has also taken on mythological connotations and is often found in seafaring literature. It would represent eternal happiness as well as springtime.
    In the Native American Cochiti tribe, the Sun's firstborn son is named Bluebird. In the short story "The Sun's Children," featured in Ruth Benedict's Tales of the Cochiti Indians (1932), the Sun's male child was named Bluebird (Culutiwa). (Sun -> Bluebird -> Louis)
    In Navajo tradition the Bluebird is associated with the rising Sun. The Bluebird Song is sung to remind tribal members to rise at dawn to give thanks to the rising Sun. "Bluebird said to me: Get up, my grandchild. It is dawn; it said to me."
    The bluebird, understood as a representation of the concept of freedom, which coincides with a form of "resurrection," is also found in two of the authors whom Harry has repeatedly acknowledged to be a source of inspiration for him: Paul McCartney and David Bowie.
    “Oh I'll be free, just like that bluebird. Oh I'll be free. Ain't that just like me?" sings Bowie in "Lazarus." A kind of testament, where he seems to want to tell us: just as I am dying, I am ready to be reborn and to feel free at last, whatever form I will take.
    In McCartney, the Bluebird (a song written with his wife Linda during a vacation in Jamaica) becomes a metaphor for the transcendent power of love and the liberation of the human spirit from a form of physical and mental slavery. The Bluebird itself becomes a symbol of Love, understood as the only source of Freedom.

    “Late at night when the wind is still I'll come flying through your door, and you'll know what love is for; I'm a bluebird.”

    Turning to literature, we know that Harry also loves Charles Bukowski. Several times he has been seen reading his poetry, and his writing has also been influenced by the poet in the past. No wonder, then, that Bukowski wrote a poem entitled "Bluebird."

    “There's a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out but I'm too tough on him”

    First published in 1992 in the collection "Last Night of the Earth Poems," Bukowski tells of the malaise inherent in every person, a pain that each of us feels, latent, a kind of background noise of our existence. Again, that longed-for sense of freedom.
    The Bluebird is also quoted by Oscar Wilde in "The Decay of Lying (1889)." A Bluebird singing about beautiful and impossible things that are not but should be. Yeah...

    “Champing his gilded oats, the hippogriff will stand in our stalls; and over our heads will float the Blue Bird singing of beautiful and impossible things, of things that are lovely and that never happen, of things that are not and that should be.”

    In "May-Day," by Ralph Waldo Emerson, we find not only the bluebird but also daffodils. I wonder where I have seen them before

    “When I bought my farm, I did not know what a bargain I had in the bluebirds, daffodils and thrushes; as little did I know what sublime mornings and sunsets I was buying.”

    "Gay as a daffodil" = "Gay as a bluebird" Finally, I couldn't help but look up the meaning of Bluebird in Urban Dictionary (it's all Harry's fault and his cryptic slang). I leave the considerations to you. *definition posted 2017

    (Don’t mind me lurking on your page I sent in some stuff last night so I’m 👀)

    You are brilliant. Thank you so much for taking the time to translate all of that!! That’s really a beautiful thread and now I love that song even more. 😭😭😭😭

    Podcast: Bluebird Market Hall in Silverthorne

    Big, good things are happening in Colorado’s Town of Silverthorne for locals and visitors. One of those things is the Bluebird Market Hall at Fourth Street Crossing. When we visited Silverthorne, we got to visit the Hall and tour it with Scott Vollmer, director of property operations. We were so impressed by what we saw, and ate, we returned a couple of weeks later! We also wanted to share some…

    “...Marigold?” “Heya, Winn.” You’ve actually pictured this in idle daydreams, before: If you ever got to bump into your childhood friend-rival-confidant again, what it would be like, how long it would take her to realize the new you? Would it play out like that old cliché – the awed whisper of your last name, the ‘could it be’ or ‘is that truly you?’ Confused, surprised, maybe a little relieved. You’d get to nod tranquilly, playing it all cool while she slowly reaches out in disbelief to t– In three sharp clacks of heels on asphalt, Winter Schnee stalks forward and slaps you hard across the face.

    Blackened Bluebird by badendchan (which I cannot link nor mention lest this post be sent to the Shadow Realm thanks tumblr) is an absolutely 11/10 fic about May Marigold being Salem's Chosen Girl and you KNOW it's good when it's given me Art Brainworms(tm)!!! the last chapter is about to go up and I will miss this fic dearly, mostly because may's internal narrative is like 126k of her clown shoes honking CONSTANTLY. please go read it. for me,

    #rwby#may marigold#winter schnee#blackened bluebird#my art #i will have to reblog this with links (or pop em in the replies) because TUMBLR!!! #but please go read it
