Another manuscript I really like is this 1110-1130 English bestiary, drawn by an artist whose approach to unfamiliar animals was “like a bear, but…”

Like a bear, but pointy.

Like a bear, but wet.

Like a bear, but breathing fire.

Like a bear, but winged. (Yes, the second one does say salamandra. Because it’s a salamander. No problems here.)

And my personal favourite: like a bear, but overcome with the futility of existence in a harsh and uncaring world. Look at the faces on the bottom two. Those lions are so done.

Also featuring some extremely untrustworthy elephants:

Akka Mahadevi
Akka Mahadevi (c.1130-1160), one of the early female poets in the Kannada language was a prominent figure of the Veerashaiva Bhakti movement of the 12th century Karnataka. She is a prominent figure in the field of female emancipation and a person of mystical vision.

Mahadevi is said to have refused to wear any clothing—a common practice among male ascetics, but shocking for a woman. Legend has it that due to her true love and devotion with God her whole body was protected by hair.

Freedom Tastes Like This

or, the “if hak had not been there the night soo-won killed king il/if zeno found yona first…” AU

Akatsuki no Yona

words: 1130

note: the driving point of the massive au post i had written out since i wanted to see how it’d work as a small test-run and OMG this is actually almost 10 times more susceptible to angst than the original somehow lol bye

In the midst of everything, she comes up with an unwelcome witty analogy: most birds born in a cage do not know how to fly outside of one.

Again, Yona trips over a root and braces herself seconds before impact. She’s got bruises on the soles her feet and maybe one of her ankles are swollen but she’s never broken anything before so she can’t really tell. Her lips are chapped and every time she licks them, they just get dryer and dryer. She wonders if it’s natural as they start to bleed.

The time between the pages

I was asked on Tumblr if I could do something angsty and as this oneshot was already half-written I decided to finish it. Regina and Emma are still in the closet but have secret meetings on a nearby beach some mornings. It’s sad and hopefully slightly poetic. It’s set around season 4B in canon but they are both single at this point.

Remember that time I went to bed at 0630 when I had to be up at 1130 for an appointment, and ended up not getting up until 1215? So, then I literally chugged a cup of coffee, pulled my hair up into a hot mess bun, and yanked on a dress before running out the door, half-barefoot?

I do. Thanks, therealkillthetraitor. This is your fault.

I went to bed at 1130 and woke up at like 3 and now my anxieties are literally racing through my head and I can’t sleep and I just want to cry for a year
