Pronunciation Guide.

I just looked at my reply to the ask and realised I got Augus wrong. It’s not Augus without the ‘ST’ (the S isn’t silent, Pia, you fool), it’s just ‘August without the T.’ Like the month.

Gwyn ap Nudd - GWIN (like win) app NEED

Augus Each Uisge - AW-gous(like August) ACH OOSHKA

Nain Rouge - NANE ROOJ (will also accept BRAT)

Ondine - ON-DEEN

(Ash) Glashtyn - GLASH-TIN

Gulvi - GOOL-Vee

Dullahan - DOOL-a-HAN

Dra’ocht - DREE-ukht

Mafydd - MAH - Fidd

Crielle - Cree - ELL

Efnisien - F - Ni (rhymes with Zit) - see - N

I think that covers the hardest names/words?

And remember, you can pronounce this stuff HOWEVER YOU WANT TO. This is just for those who like to know. :)

So I just finished reading not_poignant's “From the Darkness We Rise” and it was so amazing I just had to make this author something to show my appreciation of their work!

It is, hands down, one of the best fan fictions I’ve ever read, and definitely the best I’ve encountered for this fandom. It’s a good thing there’s a sequel in the works, because the ending… my gosh… I just can’t.

I won’t spoil it for you guys, if you like blackice (or even if you don’t, really, it’s THAT good) character development, various mythologies and just a generally awesome, emotionally-charged plot, go here and read up! And stay tuned for the sequel, I know I am!

okay, time to get back to writing.

So I kinda wanted to jump on the ‘I have disastrous feels for From the Darkness we Rise and I need to draw/write/sing/interpretive dance them out or I will never be able to function again’ bandwagon and this was the result. Taken from chapter 17 because that little conversation between Jack and North was too adorable.

um…I hope this is okay, if there’s any sort of copyright infringing or anything like that going on just let me know and I’ll take it down.

Link to the huge copy:

Making doodles of Pitch is really helping me relax right now <3 
This one kind of reminds me of Ch 17 From the Darkness We Rise…

‘What’s wrong with you?’

‘I have no idea. I very much would like to not be able to read your fears anymore.’

My head doesn’t hurt,’ Jack said, eyes narrowing.

‘Excellent,’ Pitch’s tone implied it was anything but.

Here’s another dedication to the critically acclaimed (if I do say so myself) Shadows and Light fanfic, written by not-poignant.
I’m actually rather proud of this one. I wanted to encapsulate something hopeful; if other readers are anything like I am, it’s difficult to emerge from the angst-fest. Jack and Pitch should just go take a long-ass vacation and BE HAPPY.

Pitch Perspective II - The Armchair (Deleted Scene)

Based off this deliciousness, by ThatisLudicrous.

Rating: NC-17 (it’s 5000 words of porn basically)
Timeline: This is an AU Deleted Scene, but it would be set after chapter 16, and in North’s Workshop.
Pairing: PitchxJack / Blackice.

This is part of the Shadows & Light Series (i.e. From the Darkness We Rise and Into Shadows We Fall), and may not make sense without it!

I figured everyone could do with some Pitch, given that he’s currently MIA in the series! Remember these will - at some point - go up on AO3 (and *maybe* but for now, this is the ONLY place you can read these! Feedback is love.

Summary: Jack decides to bug the hell out of Pitch, and Pitch decides that if he’s going to be interrupted, he might as well make the most out of the situation. Not that Jack particularly minds…
