From the Darkness we Rise

Jack Frost - Guardian, Frost Sprite, Almost Fae, Little Shit

Just finished reading Shadows and Light and couldn’t get the image of this out of my head. It’s influence by The Wild Hunt scene and Jack chasing the White Stag. He felt so wild in that moment, and I think if he leaned a bit more towards being a fae, his appearance might be influenced by the stag itself.

Thank you to not-poignant​ for writing this amazing series, if anyone who sees this ships PitchBlack/JackFrost or would be willing to give it a chance I highly encourage you to give this work a read, you won’t be disappointed.

Space horns are cool, not easy to paint though.

Twenty two years have passed since the defeat of Pitch, and Jack lives alone, touch-starved, with only the company of a solitary Nightmare. One evening the Man in the Moon sets him on a path that will lead him to unexpected relationships, draw the attention of the Guardians to a new coalition of villains, and challenge Jack’s every notion of what it is to be good, evil, and what it is to live in the shadows. 

so my friend told me to read this fic by @not-poignant and i was bored so i did and it turned out to be hella amazing so here’s a badly made trailer for it that’ll i’ll just leave here

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 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.

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.

okay, time to get back to writing.

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.
