Okay, let’s get the niceties out of the way, nyes? I own sweet fuck all from this video. None of the gifs are mine, none of the clips are mine, the music is not mine, the story is not mine, the authoress is not mine (pity that…). Okay you get it. I don’t claim ownership over any of this. I simply whacked it together because I was feeling shit today (still feel like I’ve been run over by several trains…)and I felt I should contribute to the awesomeness that is ‘The Shadows and Light series’ and earn my spot in Not_Poignant’s well-deserved fanbase.

I tried to gather as many relevant clips as I could. Obviously with so many created characters, one can’t do much in the way of describing the plot through motion alone and I do so hate to write subtitles, because I’m weird.

If you have not read the fictions, I lovingly place the link below for my promoting pleasure, and your viewing…

Read it here(Go read it darlings, it you have not already.)

“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.”
-Pia (Not_Poignant)

I’m gonna go die now…quietly…

Yooooooooo it's me again I'm back, the anon that sent you 4 messages the other day :DDD das me :)) anyways, I'm like at the beginning of 'search and rescue' in ISWF and I literally JUST remembered how Jack got his powers back and I am so emotional right now, I had to put down my phone and let a tear roll outta my eye as I fetched myself some water. I'm a mess and I love it :DDD

ldkfjsafds You’re making me want to reread everything! Haha - I’ve already done that like once this year, and here I am like ‘but I could just… reread that chapter. Or just ISWF? That totally won’t lead into Game Theory and all the rest of them. Nope.’

(I’ve actually been meaning to reread The Golden Age that Never Was so I can catch all my accidental-but-still-glaring continuity errors. I’m sure there’s a ton. That’s the downside of winging a serial).

But ahhh, Jack getting his powers back. Yeah, I still really like that scene. It’s such a huge clusterfuck, lol.

anonymous asked:

Kinda out of the blue here, but do you think Jack and pitch would ever have like, an actual wedding? Black, silver, blue colors. It'd be so sweet!

I am…the worst person to ask about this, because I don’t believe in the institution of marriage (yes, I’m one of those people), and therefore the characters I write don’t believe in it either (because of the autocratic power an author has over their characters, it’s one of the perks of the job).

So rather than shatter your beautiful dream further by going into painstaking detail about why I don’t think Jack and Pitch would marry, I’ll just kind of leave it as the above paragraph and let you imagine the most awesome, sweet ritual ever. I’m sure there’ve been other readers who have imagined the same thing. :)


augus each uisge series - #1

ok so this is probably the starting point of quite a lot more augus scribbles that i’ll continue uploading as I clean out my sketchbook - so imma call it a ‘series’ and hope it’ll help me keep motivated. 
i think we all know that augus belongs to @not-poignant and i can’t stop thinking about how much i love him - that being said i only read FTDWR & ISWF and not the other parts of the SALverse (nor the Fae Tales - yes shame on me i know) and my augus is always based on that– 

please click pictures for better quality T°T 

anonymous asked:

Which fics are FtDWR and ISWF? Like, I know they are acronyms for the titles of the fics but I can't work out which titles/which fics, because I'm tired, stressed by exams, and my brain abandoned ship long ago.

Here, anon, have a blanket fort and some hypoallergenic puppies, and some chocolate, and I’ll give you the links too (though you may not need them):

From the Darkness We Rise

Into Shadows We Fall

also known as the Shadows and Light series, which is abbreviated to SALverse on Tumblr.

I hope you do well on your exams <3

anonymous asked:

I've just finished rereading salverse again and wow, the ending of iswf gets me every time. Every thing ties up so nicely and I'm so happy you gave Jack a few chapters to feel anxious about the war not being over. Also, is there any fanart of Jack's lighthouse that you can link me to? I've always wanted to see it. (also, I'm about to start tgatnw and I'm so excited!! I love your works!)

That I know of / can remember, the only real example was in this piece of artwork by Besteck.

At the time, we’d actually talked about it a little and what it was supposed to look like via chat, and it’s the most fully realised version of it. :) And that piece of art is just sublime.

I hope you enjoy TGATNW!

And yeah, I really liked being able to give Jack some chapters where his PTSD wasn’t magically resolved because the final conflict had happened, and also being able to spin that into a denouement that would give them at least 4-5 chapters of a happy ending, because they’d definitely earned it!

anonymous asked:

Hi, I'm the anon who asked what FtDWR and ISWF stood for. Thank you for de-misting my foggy brain. I'm going to take a break from studying, go in that blanket fort with those puppies and read until my hearts content. I'm studying to be a veterinarian, thank you for wishing me luck!

Oh, what an awesome job (and challenging, but I imagine you know all about that side of things <3) Extra luck with your exams! I suppose you don’t need the (non-existent) hypoallergenic puppies after all :D

(And I hope you’re catching up on some rest too)

Haha this is so romantic it actually hurts me. Physically. I’m gonna be putting this one on AO3.

Tarantism - The urge to overcome melancholy by dancing.

Pitch Black/Jack Frost

(I got two requests for this! Same word, same pairing! Guess two of you really want to see Jack and Pitch dance.)

(SALverse, basically fluff)


It was one of those days.

The words didn’t quite capture the heaviness of it. He didn’t have these days so often anymore. They tended to come on the backs of dreams about his old world, his old life – how many old lives did he have now? The one as the Nightmare King. The one as Pitch. The one as Kozmotis. The one as Kozmotis pre-Seraphina. The one as Kozmotis post-Seraphina.

This time, he’d dreamt about the celebrations after the successful initiation ceremony into becoming a golden warrior. It had been a rocky affair, he’d gone deeper into the darkness than the others and his supervisor had known it and carefully said nothing after seeing the look in Pitch’s eyes. So Pitch had tried to embrace the vivacity of his colleagues and peers, drinking as vigorously as they, and yet in the depths of him a darkness whispered quietly.

Pronunciation Guide for names in the Fae Tales Verse

An (as yet incomplete) audio pronunciation guide to the names in the Fae Tales verse.

It was about time I got off my ass and did this. Please excuse my tired croakiness, I’m pre-morning-medication and it’s made me a little groggy. Why do I always do these things when I’m tired? Lol. I’ll probably do a better one later one. …Just like one day I’ll edit ISWF…

Anyway! There is already an incomplete text pronunciation file, but the audio might make it easier for some.

Enjoy some ridiculous morning Australian!

‘Will you take my hand?’ Pitch said, turning his hand so that it rested, palm up, on the bed. 'You were able to do that earlier.’

Jack realised Pitch was talking about the time he’d woken up from the nightmare. He looked down and then swallowed. There was nothing organic about this. It was stilted, required permissions. But if it was the only way, then…

Jack licked at his dry lips and then nervously lowered his hand until it was over Pitch’s palm. He curled his fingers around Pitch’s hand, and felt a buzz of sensation when Pitch’s hand shifted minutely between his, fingers pressing back.

I felt like doodling. Another something for Not-Poignat’s fanfiction because omg I don’t know anymore this thing is killing me dfgljflghkj. (You might need to open in a new tab, I’m sorry!)

Little Talks of Shadows and Light

Music: “Little Talks” by Of Monsters and Men
Video: Rise of the Guardians

Inspired by not_poignant’s Shadows and Light series.

So a while ago I was enjoying chapter 22 of this awesome series by not-poignant, and I read this paragraph:

“Overnight, delicate fairylights that looked like snowflakes had appeared in Jack’s room, seeming to have grown out of the very walls. That very morning, a twine of fluffy golden tinsel had snaked its way around the legs of the armchair in Pitch’s room. It had appeared out of the very energy of the Workshop itself, since neither of them had opened a window or door to let it in.”

Annnnnd my pencil slipped :D
