"There was something about the word itself that was magical. Cabeswater. Something old and enigmatic, a word that didn't seem to belong in the New World." - Maggie Stiefvater

Welcome to my little corner to the Raven Cycle fandom

put a message into the puzzle box


I ventured into the forest this evening hoping for fog, but I got sun instead, and decided to try and make the most of it. I still can’t believe this is ten minutes from my new apartment.

What if I have to drop out?

That’s fine! While it’s preferred that you say you’re dropping out as early as possible, if you find out you are busy/don’t have the time for it, send us an ask and we’ll either re-assign your partner or make them a present! 

Where should I post the present? 

Here on tumblr or AO3 (if fanfiction) is preferable! You should also tag it with your secret santa’s url and trcsecretsanta so that way we can reblog it here! 

I have other questions! 

That’s fine!!! Send us an ask and we’ll get to it right away!!!

It wasn’t going to be him and her.
It wasn’t going to be him and Gansey.
There was no more not here, not now. It was here. It was now.
It was just going to be him and Cabeswater.
I am unknowable.

Because Niall Lynch was a forest fire, a rising sea, a car crash, a closing curtain, a blistering symphony, a catalyst with planets inside him. 

And he had given all of that to his middle son.
