So honey now

Take me into your loving arms

Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars

Place your head on my beating heart

I’m thinking out loud

That maybe we found love right where we are


Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell

For more unique dystopian visions of the future, try these…

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess for a violent future Britain where the establishment seeks order by reforming dangerous youth.

Little Brother by Cory Doctorow for a 1984-inspired YA thriller set in the near future that explores the dystopian effect of post 9/11 policy.

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel for a literary love letter to humanity after a flu pandemic wipes out 99% of the population.

The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell for a genre-busting epic that starts in 1984 and ends in 2043.

Okay so

I saw this on my dash and immediately assumed oldbisonb was some a-hole who stole my work for his own notes and no. No, this person reblogged me. Thank you oldbisonb, I’m very happy that you enjoyed my work!

But, Tumblr saw fit that they should be advertised on my blog for something they didn’t make. Do you know what that little follow button is there in place of? the fucking source link.

I followed a lot of recommended blogs from my dash because of the artwork displayed, so now I don’t know if they were just reblogs, and the artists I wanted to follow are still completely unknown to me.

this is some kinda fucked up art thievery on tumblr’s behalf, and I’d love for someone to let me know if reblogs are always being recommended, or if there’s something I’m not yet aware of (recommendations of popular blogs who reblog your work for example), because this is really fucked.


Go Book Yourself 1st Birthday Special!

It’s our birthday! In just 12 months, we’ve recommended 653 books over 135 posts, and grown to over 130,000 followers. Thank you all so much!

To celebrate, here are our favourite books recommended to us by others…

Northern Lights by Philip Pullman was recommended to me by my Grandad, who bought it for me one Christmas. My grandad would buy me and my sister books every Christmas and this year he gave me what turned out to be one of my all time favourite books. 

The Sisters Brothers by Patrick DeWitt was recommended to me by Dan, who said the characters reminded him of us. I loved it. It was like stepping into the Wild West and sitting in a movie theatre at the same time. Great characters, brotherly bonds and a bad-ass search for gold!

Dept. of Speculation by Jenny Offill was recommended to me by Anna. Anna is the best recommender of books I’ve ever met and for good reason, she knew I’d love this and she was right. It’s my favourite book of the year so far; hilarious, heartbreaking and beautifully written. Thanks Anna!

Tell us: What’s the best book you’ve ever been recommended, and who recommended it to you?

nessaivyselena asked:

Have you ever read the fanfic "my heart is breathing for this moment in time" on Ao3? It just ended and my heart broke, but it was so wonderful at the same time. If you haven't read it, I really recommend it. Still love the blog~!

When Louis first saw Harry at the 2010 X Factor Auditions, he thought he was watching a peculiarly special stranger. But Harry has known Louis ever since he was five years old.

Because Louis has a rare genetic disorder that causes him to Time Travel to important moments in his past and in his future - and to Harry, always to Harry. When they’re put into a band together, it seems like everything Harry has been waiting and wishing for has finally come true. Except for the small fact that Louis doesn’t know that Harry is in love with him- that Harry’s always been in love with him. Fate, it would seem, is just getting started.

A story about growing up and growing together, and the impossible love that makes it all worthwhile.


Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin

For more tales about life, love, and New York, try these…

Everyone Worth Knowing by Lauren Weisberger for hauntingly accurate depiction of letting your job over-run your life in New York City.

Beastly by Alex Flinn for the tale of a young man punished for his vanity. A retelling of Beauty and the Beast set in contemporary New York. 

The Heiresses by Sara Shepard for frightening look at the lives of young, socialite woman in New York, and the people trying to destroy them. 

Bright Lights, Big City by Jay Mcinerney for an intense story of losing who you are to the party scene and the enthralling draw of Manhattan itself.

The post was guest edited by author Jill Knapp. Her latest novel, We’ve Always Got New York, is out Nov 20. You can find her on Twitter here.

In Progress

  • WorldMatch (by BritishTraveller) - After a nasty breakup, Arthur gives online dating a try and soon meets a cute American doctor.
  • Vanity Search (by snowyfoxpaws) - Arthur likes to see how people react to his horror video games. Especially the handsome, easily frightened ones. Hello, Mr. Jones.

Met in Person, Fell in Love Online

  • The Gentleman and The Hero (by Teenage Mouse) - A love story told through email.
  • Falling Slowly, Falling Hard (by slashy_lady) - Two lawyers that dislike each other happen to be best friends by email. [Thank you to dreamer-neo for reminding me of this story!]
  • Connection (by Smrtypantz) - “Alfred and Arthur may not get along in real life, but once they start chatting online without knowing who the other is, they find themselves falling for their mysterious emailer…” (Uneven writing, but the story is really cute.)

The Classics

  • Migrane
  • twenty one pilots
  • Vessel

I’ve got a migraine
and my pain will range from up down and sideways
thank God it’s Friday
'Cause Fridays will always be better than Sundays
'Cause Sundays are my suicide days
I don’t know why they always seem so dismal
Thunderstorms, clouds, snow, and a slight drizzle
Whether it’s the weather or the letters by my bed
sometimes death seems better than the migraine in my head


If you love psychedelic rock you’ll love this

Harry replies back with lots of heart emojis and pictures of himself shirtless and still in bed, grinning like an idiot, and Louis saves all of Harry’s pictures.

Influence Map Meme: my artist inspirations

(sorry this is so long! I didn’t realize I had this much to say about other artists. in fact, I probably have a lot more to say about them >.>;;;)

1. Akihiko Yoshida | I love his character designs, specifically for Final Fantasy Tactics and the 2 online games in the series. His mix of armour and robes is the ideal fantasy aesthetic for me. I love going through his class designs for tactical RPG’s and seeing how well they mesh together and remain distinctive even when shrunk altered for ingame graphics.

2. George Kamitani | Artist for most (all?) Vanillaware games. I love everything about his work - the exaggerated figures, the colours, the HANDS - and love it even more when it’s all animated. Recently, I bought Dragon’s Crown almost solely for the Amazon character and her boulder-crushing legs. He’s influenced my digital painting style and I hope one day to create character just as bold.

3. gigidigi | It has been incredible to see the progress of her work over the years, from the livejournal days to the current beast that is Cucumber Quest. Her colours and composition have improved so much, and I’ve never seen her be anything but encouraging to other artists.

4. Final Fantasy 9 | The perfect Final Fantasy! Not only does it have a wide variety of character designs that fit seamlessly into the created world, but it’s backgrounds are easily the most beautiful and memorable for me. As well, the world felt truly large but not overwhelming. Every inch of it could be explored, revealing a plethora of secrets and treasures. Even now, I aim to recreate that adventure experience in my story work.

5. CLAMP | One word: Costumes. If CLAMP taught me anything, it’s that poofy skirts/shorts/sleeves combined with ribbons and lace and magic is the key to happiness. My love for these things probably comes directly from the religious watching and reading of Cardcaptors in grade school.

6. Tite Kubo | Creator of the manga Bleach. Although his story telling has deteriorated awfully, his drawings are still amazingly pretty! I also started drawing males more because of Bleach, and sometimes you can still catch traces of his influence in my work. It holds a weird place in my heart…

7. sachinteng | His combination of organic and non-organic objects is… is beyond words! As well as his use of glitch/static effects, how he puts all these things together into a coherent and meaningful piece is incredibly inspiring! And the animations!!!!

8. Junji Ito | A well known horror manga artist. He has a handful of long works but I think his skills shine the most in his short stories. He thrives on the inevitable and unresolved, and does so without being overly grotesque (think Battle Royale manga, though that’s not horror). Anyway, I love the feeling of unease he creates, even when the imagery can sometimes be eerily beautiful. Also, his cat comics. Those are amazing.

9. maruti-bitamin | Her work is truly something else! Her work conveys a lot of thoughtful emotions to me. Sometimes they’re somber, sometimes they’re hopeful. Sometimes they’re caught in a space between the living and spirit plain and I have no idea what feeling I’m getting, but either way I can’t turn away from it. It’s mesmerizing and I love it!

10. rei | The last artist I wanted to be someone I recently found. They’re mostly active on pixiv, with a good mix of fanart and original works (pixiv fantasy). I’m especially taken by their use of colour and how they capture wind movement, as if there’s an energy surrounding the character. Even their twitter sketches are breathe taking. An amazing gallery, please check them out!

BONUS aka I forgot to include them, aaaaah!

11. Takehito Harada | Mostly known for his distinct art style used in the Disgaea games. I originally learned of him after playing (and thoroughly enjoying) Phantom Brave. Although I’m not a hardcore fan of the Disgaea series, I have always been very fond of his character designs. They’re fun, bright, and include the excessive use of over-sized bangles and cuffs.

12. pixelatedcrown | A huge inspiration to me! When I lost all motivation to continue with my grad film in my 4th year, it was her work and enthusiasm in game creation that pulled me out of my broken state and inspired me to scrap my then current film and create a game trailer instead. I completed my film in something like 2 months and even made a simple working level of it in Gamemaker. I am eternally thankful!
