“I’m easy to recognize, if you ever come here,” xe writes on xir arm.

The words blurr and smear away a moment later, as xir soulmate frees up space to write back “I’ll be sure to keep an eye out.”

Xir soulmate doesn’t give a description back. Ze never does.

Xe wonders what ze has to hide, keeping secrets from zir own soulmate.

“It’s you?” snarls the mercenary ”You’re my Fate?”

The red string is stretched taut between their two hands.

“Well fuck,” says the other mercenary  “I want you to know that I still intend to kill you if you don’t stand down, Fate be damned.”

“The way you tell it, we’ve known each other for a thousand lifetimes.” says xir soulmate “You and I, together, throughout history.”

“Just the boring parts.” xe responds “I’m immortal. You might come back but- losing you is never easy.”

“Well, okay, the boring parts of history. And now you’re nervous about the thought of meeting my parents? Have you never met them before?”

“I just- What if they don’t approve?”

The whole idea of soulmarks is that they’re there to tell you about the most important person in your life. They’re supposed to indicate the most important conversation you’ll ever have with your soulmate (a lot of people have ‘I love you’. A lot of people have ‘I need to tell you something’. A lot of people have ‘I’m seeing someone else’.)

That’s all well and good, except it still doesn’t explain why xe has titties in blocky, uneven script over xir sternum. Right in between xir titties.

“It’s you?”

It takes a moment for the words to really sink in- the tone (offended, loud, angry) is familiar. But the words.

The hero gazes at the villain uncomprehendingly. There is a cord stretched taut between their hands.

“You.” the villain spits “And me? Soulmates?”

Soulmate Prompts pt 2

Part one here

-The first words your soulmate ever say to you will be written on your skin on the first place they touch you. You aren’t sure if you just don’t have any words, so if they’re lost in the broad swathes of scar tissue carving up your skin.

-Everyone’s soul is in pieces- usually two though sometimes more. There’s the big piece that you get, and a smaller piece in the form of an animal called your familiar. Everyone grows up with the familiar of their soulmate as their companion, melding back into your soul when you meet. The only complete people are the ones who’ve met their soulmates.

The familiar made from your soul looks back at you from the foot of the bed as you sleep.

– If you write on your skin, the words will show up on your soulmates in the same spot. 

The very first time anyone replies, it’s the word HELP in big, shaky letters.

-You stop aging at 25 until you’ve met your soulmate, after which you’ll start again. Your soulmate has you killed throughout your lifetimes so they can live forever.

This lifetime, though, you were born remembering. It’s not everything, but you’re going to make it enough.

-The name of your soulmate is written on your left wrist. You’re a congenital amputee, who’s arm stops a few inches below your elbow.

-The Most Important words your soulmate will ever say to you will engrave themselves on your body when they’ve been said. You’re an amnesiac with the words ‘No matter what, I’ll always protect you’ cut bloody red over your sternum

-You can feel the moments of your soulmates death.You don’t know who your soulmate was, but you know they died messy when you were young. Until you feel it again. And again. And again.

-If you don’t meet your soulmate by twenty five, you’ll die. You’ve got a tumor in the base of your skull that’s not going to let you make it that far, but if you can meet your soulmate, just for a moment, you can save them before you take them with you.

– You died, blood bubbling on your lips as your soulmate laughed and laughed, as you thrashed and fought, as you choked curses around your teeth, anger boiling out with your guts as they pulled them free.

You wake up, the same nightmare again. There are no soulmates here

As Written By An Aromantic 

-The first words you and your soulmate will ever say to eachother are tattooed on your skin. You have no Words, just a brilliant watercolour mass directly over your left hipbone.

-Soulmates see in black and white until they meet, at which point they gain the ability to see colour. You have been able to see colour for as long as you can remember- sometimes, though, you remember something. A pain, a flash. The feeling of your heart stopping. A name that isn’t the one you use now.

-The name of your soulmate, and the name of your greatest enemy are written on your wrists. You don’t know which one is which- except. One of the names on your wrist is yours.

-You’ll know who your soulmate is the first time the two of you touch skin to skin. You’re an assassin who always covers your skin completely, and who wears a helmet while you work. You get an assignment to work with another assassin, and for some reason you feel strangely drawn to them

-The name of your soulmate is inscribed on your skin somewhere. A red name is the best- a long lasting passionate love. Pink is much like red, but less intense. People with pink names are more prone to marryins outside the soulmate bond. Green is for platonic soulmates- people with green names are often bullied for not being ‘good enough’. Purple means you’ll never meet.

Your name is yellow. You’ve never heard of yellow.

-You’ll only know who your soulmate is when they die. You’re a quasi-immortal who’s lived through the lives and deaths of your soulmate reincarnated over and over again.

-Soulmates share dreamscapes. You’ve never had anything but nightmares.
