Please please I want the citation in the book about his hair because I dont remember it aaaaaa (Sorry for bad english ??)

Hey! Sorry it took me a while to get back to you. It was a combination of “Hmm is there anything else you can add?” and “I’ll get back to this later!” LOL

Anyway, here are some excerpts that give the readers some information about Laurent’s hair:

Captive Prince, Chapter 10:

Laurent’s body was a series of graceful lines under the shirt’s soft folds. Damen’s eyes lifted to the white column of his throat, and above that the golden hair, parting around the shell cup of an unjewelled ear. The image was damascened, as beaten metal. He was reading.

Prince’s Gambit, Chapter 2: 

In order to begin unlacing the garment, he had to lift his fingers and brush to one side the ends of the gilt hair, soft as fox fur. When he did so, Laurent tipped his head very slightly, offering better access.

Prince’s Gambit, Chapter 14: 

Damen looked downwards and saw the way that the white fabric shifted slightly under his thumbs. Laurent’s shirt hung on his body, a containing layer. Then Damen’s eyes travelled up along the balanced nape, to a wick of golden hair tucked behind an ear.

Prince’s Gambit, Chapter 18: 

Laurent looked like any young man who has been pressed against a battlement and kissed. The slight disturbance of the hair at Laurent’s nape was wonderful. His hand had lain there.

Kings Rising, Chapter 12: 

Damen lifted his hand, slid his fingers into the short, soft hair at the back of Laurent’s neck, cupping his head. They had never been this close, not with the fact of who he was open between them.

There was only the feel of it, the slide of his chest against Laurent’s back, the dip of Laurent’s head, and the sweat-damp hair at the nape of Laurent’s neck.

Kings Rising, Chapter 14:

The light through the trees dappled Laurent’s hair, which was longer now than it had been in the palace, and showing signs of minor disarray.

The Summer Palace:

He remembered - the steam of those other baths, the moment he had caught Laurent’s wrist in his hand. This close, he could see the wet tops of Laurent’s shoulders. Above that, the tips of Laurent’s hair were wet too, from steam or from the splash from the pitcher.

The passage from The Summer Palace (TSP) clearly states that Laurent’s hair is slightly above shoulder length. Since TSP occurs near the end of this series’ timeline AND Chapter 14 of King’s Rising (KR) states that Laurent’s hair grows throughout the trilogy, I can make assumptions of the length of Laurent’s hair from earlier.

I believe that at the beginning of the trilogy, Laurent’s hair is at/around chin level. In Chapter 10 of Captive Prince (CP), Laurent’s hair is described to be tucked behind his ear. Hair that is chin level (speaking from personal experience because mine is that short) is easily able to be tucked behind the ear. Any shorter than chin length is hard to brush behind the ear. 

Laurent’s hair is constantly described as at the nape, aka the back of the neck. Since we know that Laurent’s hair is at chin level in CP and is shoulder length in TSP, I can conclude that his hair grows throughout Prince’s Gambit (PG) and KR.

TL;DR - Laurent’s hair begins at chin level, gradually grows throughout the trilogy, and is now at shoulder level. He has “medium” length hair.

“They said that Hades never smiled. They said that the god that ruled all that is beneath the ground had actually forgotten how happiness really felt like, or any emotion whatsoever.

And they pitied that “poor, unfortunate girl”, so young and beautiful, who had been forced to stay with a man incapable of giving her the love she deserved. Six months per year. For all eternity.

But these are only lies, Persephone thought, as she opened her eyes, feeling still a little numb from the drowsiness.
For they don’t know how warm, gentle and loving is Hades’ smile.”

This is my caption to this illustration (which is the digitally coloured version of my previous post). Since I really liked when @melsisalady22 added her own text to this other little comic of mine, I thought that I’d like to see what would you add to my caption. You can also re-write it completely if you want to (feel free to do it), or even quote someone else’s text/book/post (in this case remember to put the credits please). I’ll choose three of the best written and most inherent captions (so, try not to “twist the mood” of the illustration completely) and I’ll also reward the users who wrote them with a completely free drawing of their own choice.

I´ve seen a few people on my dashboard who seem really upset about the whole baby thing. So I thought I´d make a post about why I am still pretty firmly on the “there won´t be a Robecca baby at the end of this” train:

  • Pacing. If  she were to have the baby, it would be due sometime around Christmas, which means there would be 7 more months worth of episodes to fill with this sl. If that were their plan and they wanted to keep things interesting for that long, all of this would have been dragged out for far longer, to get the most amount of drama out of it. It would have taken longer to find out about the pregnancy in the first place, they would have played the “whose the daddy”-angle for much longer and now that everything is revealed, they certainly wouldn´t have Aaron come around to accept the pregnancy and support Robert this quickly. I mean, where is the drama in just watching Robert, Aaron and Rebecca prepare for the arrival of their kid somewhat happily alongside eachother for 7 months??
  • Rebecca. While I thought Rebecca had some great potential as a character, Ed obviously has no interest in her apart from her function as a plot device in Aaron and Robert´s story. If they did, they´d have spent the last few weeks having her come to terms with her pregnancy and by giving us some insight into her as a character, especially by showing us what she went through during and after that first pregnancy with Robert. This was their chance to have us sympathize with her and they didn´t take it. Didn´t even involve her in the Lachlan subplot with the rest of the Whites. Ignoring the fact that I don´t like how they are using a female character only to fuel drama for the sl of two men, this storyline was about Aaron and Robert and them growing as characters and as a couple. It was never about Rebecca. 7 months of a sl that so heavily focuses on a character they don´t care to explore? I don´t see that happening.
  • Press. Neither Iain, nor the cast are really focusing on this potential baby. It makes for a good headline, but the focus is always on Aaron and Robert and their relationship, not on Rebecca or the child, which I find fishy, because them bringing up a baby together should be a much bigger deal imo.
  • Redemption for Rebecca. While Iain might love her, neither the majority of the fandom nor the GA seem to care much about Rebecca, some even despise her. Iain himself admitted that he plans to redeem her in some way. So if they didn´t use the past few weeks to do that by showing her side of the story, seeing her lose the child in one way or another would be a sure way to have people sympathize with her.
  • Soaps like drama more than anything. And it would make for far better drama to see the three of them, but especially Aaron and Robert, accept this child and prepare, only to take it away from them in the end. Rebecca, Robert and Aaron had some terrible experiences with their own parents and didn´t exactly have easy childhoods. Seeing them come to terms with the idea of being parents, having them work through their issues and THEN taking the child away from them would make for the most dramatic sl imo.

Add to that Ryan´s “If there were to be a baby at the end of this” quote and the spoilers about “babyheartache”, I´d say it´s not set in stone that we are heading for a Robecca baby afterall.

Jeeves and Wooster

Those of you who have been following me for a while might remember “The Bloody Inconvenient Murder” story I started for Simblr’een in October 2015.

It lurched and collapsed, stuttered and died (I am not a writer D:)… but @goatkibble was it’s biggest fan and kept encouraging me. I managed to squeeze out a few more posts several months ago but yet again abandonded it, without posting any, in favour of my much less challenging legacy play.

But seeing as it was @goatkibble‘s birthday recently and I didn’t have a gift for her I have decided to tidy up my posts with “previous / next” links and post those last few parts of the story in lieu of a present.

For those who were not around at that time and decide to read this story, please note that I am not attempting to pass off P.G. Wodehouse’s brilliant writing as my own- I have quoted and borrowed liberally from the books for the story and this was done with great love, admiration and affection and not intended to make myself appear to be a good writer. And this is why the posts are also tagged with PG Wodehouse in credit to his genius.

If you wish to, you can start reading from the beginning HERE.

i know how that little ‘Pines family buying the Journals’ quotes are purely for fun, but. like. pretend it’s canon for a sec

Mabel bought two

Dipper bought ten

Stan bought twenty

all together that’s THIRTY TWO JOURNALS

that also leaves the question of how the Journal got mass produced in the first place. my idea is Stan had something to do with it. so Stan would already be getting free copies of the Journal, but actually bought, with his own money, twenty more copies of them, JUST to fuck with Ford

i love this family

i became a terf when the libfem blogger i hate read also became a terf and i realized her terf inspired text posts didn’t make me cringe like the libfem stuff. also that quote from some radfem about women being their own voyuers, and the whole Cool Girl trope, resignated with me so strongly that it changed my entire self perception and made me look to feminism for more insights

#How I Became Gender Critical

Sorry to my followers for bothering you with that... WTF !? Answered.

Is it necessary, you said ? Yes, it is necessary.  

The way you wrote your message… give me the sad impression that you don’t see the interest to credit people who take screenshots.

I guess you are the kind of people who have no idea of the amount of work that we, screenarchers, put into our screenshots. Screenarchery is not limited to press a key. We have to find the good scene, lightning, landscape, angle, we have to tweak settings  and it takes time. Like a photography. Photographers are always credited for their work, why not screenarchers ? The process is quite similar…. 

If you think screenarchers don’t need to be credited for their work,
you’re wrong.  

If you think you can browse, choose one and do what you want,
you’re wrong. 

I really feel you are the kind of people who thinks screenshots are only screenshots, nothing more so we don’t deserve credit…

And due to my restricted skills in English, I close this post by quoting the entire text of @surlysara​ who have wonderfully answered.

In the real world, photographers are either paid for photographs that artists use as references or are generous enough to give permission for an artist to use their photographs.  It is simply not done to use photographs and not give credit/buy rights.  Many artists also spend a lot of time and money on photography equipment and training to make their own references.  Obviously EA/Bioware owns any copyright privileges of their intellectual property, but @cantkeepmyeyesoff spends a LOT of time and energy creating these shots, and then freely shares them with the fan community. Is it so much to ask that she be credited for all the time and effort she puts into creating the gamer’s equivalent of photography?  To get credit for the creativity and skill required to bring us shots that inspire or allow us to do art in the first place?  And without which the artist would have to spend triple the time creating references for her own work?  Lia spends as much time taking the perfect shot as most artists spend creating a drawing or painting.  It is necessary to give credit because she asks for it.  Period.
