also that is actually me in that pic

Hi all! My little® one and I wanted to wave hi 👋 and give a little update in response to the kind DMs and anons who have asked after us. Things are going quite well in life and in the pregnancy. If all goes well, this summer my little man will get a baby brother! 😊

The pic’s actually a bit old, as we haven’t had our formal ultrasound. But this is what happens when you leave a pregnant woman alone in an office with an ultrasound machine!

My apologies that I haven’t been around much lately. My Tumblr absence is due to a few factors, most of which have to do with real life (work being especially busy), but also because Outlander fanfic, both the reading and writing of it, has always been entertainment for me. And when other things are more entertaining (or, in the case of American politics, unfortunately distracting), it gets pushed to the wayside. I have sporadically been working on the next chapter of Another Life, as I hate to leave it unfinished, but make no promises as to when it’ll be posted.

But as a little attempt to make myself focus again, here’s a little excerpt…

“Tell me about the stars, Sassenach.” Jamie’s voice was gentle and low, and he was looking at me, not at the stars slowly spinning above. The light from the moon lit his eyes, which were the clearest shade of blue I had ever seen, even in the dark. It was a clear night, and a beautiful one. After the sun set, a chill rose from the ground, making the air crisp and fresh. We lay in the grass together, and we took the lowering temperatures as an excuse to huddle close together. The wind stirred my hair, and he reached out to tuck a curl behind my ear.

“The stars? What do you want to know about the stars?”

“I remember, or rather, I wrote down something ye told me once.” He patted the sheaf of papers he had tucked back into his sporran. “‘Twas about how far away they are. But I dinna understand what I wrote. I was rushing, ken. Trying to pen all of it before I forgot anything more. I… I could feel myself losing ye, and I couldna bear it.”

The grief in his voice was thick, and it matched my own loss. Yet I had not had his foresight and had allowed my memories of him to slip away. I was distracted enough during the day with my duties as Lallybroch’s new healer and herb-mistress that I pushed aside my confusion. But at night, lying in the lonely room Jenny had lent me, I knew I was losing him, even as the days passed, and I no longer knew whom I had lost. Yet somehow, he was just inches away. I closed the gap between us by placing my hand on his where it lay on his sporran. He made a low, happy sound in his throat and opened his other arm to me, so I lay my head into the crook of his shoulder and looked up at the constellations. It felt as natural as breathing. “Well, it takes thousands of years for the light of the stars to reach us. Light travels fast, very fast, but the stars are just that far away. They’re suns, you see, like ours. Some much bigger, others smaller, at unimaginable distances. Some even died and burned out long ago, though the light they threw only reaches us now. So looking at the stars, we’re looking back in time.”

“Mmm.” His voice was a rumble. I felt it in his chest more than I heard him. “You would know, would ye no’? My lass lost in time.”

I turned my head so that I could hear his heartbeat, steady and slow, and answered, “Found, I think. Not lost, not now that I’m here with you.”

Hot pics of Skanktral Ska Hotel The Live Band
This was one of the best weekends I’ve ever had. The show was unreal. We were begged for an encore. Every song was played brutally wrong. A stranger got on stage and took my trumpet and played it instead of me (because they actually played trumpet, apparently). Two people asked to take a picture with me. One of the most surreal experiences of my fucking life.
I really miss Florida and seeing so many friends was so good. I really, really needed this weekend. Also I missed Gainesville food so much oh my god
I’m gonna post more pics/vids as they come but yeah. Wow

anonymous asked:

Yesterday you were the calm center. Did the info on the picture change your attitude? For me I was expecting pictures to show up. I still find it weird no pictures of him and family--buddy buddy--have shown up which I'm trying to to overthink it but that's also weird right? Every pic we've ever seen of them together has been at a distance of some sort. No cuddly/romantic pic/couple pics. Anyway he was obviously there but the same go around we've seen before, not necessarily an out for them.

I said last night actually that a) I didn’t think he was at the wedding lol and b) if he was it was gonna throw a wrench in my ship. and wouldya look at that! Wrong and right. I’m just confused. Very very very confused. And instead of pretending none of this bothers me, I’m being honest. Him in Georgia didn’t bother me. Him in Georgia at a family event with a girl who, back in November, made him want to vomit it seemed bothers me. There’s been certain things I’ve been able to quietly just ignore and say they don’t affect anything bc they were too inconsequential to have any affect. And then there are other things, like New Years Eve and now this, that make me scratch my head. Especially this because it comes right after the fists in bed picture. So Sam is taking pictures in bed with his co-star and then going to Georgia for his girlfriend’s brothers wedding? And instead of enjoying the time with the girl he pretty much never sees, he’s online at 1am EST tweeting about politics. Can you see why I’m confused? I’d like some honesty sooner rather than later and it seemed like we were headed for that. Guess not.

tagged by; @52hz aka my one true love

edit; i would like to confess that i was wrong when i said i was lazy (well actually that’s still true, so i wasn’t wrong) but i actually have maybe 4-ish friends on tumblr and they’ve all been tagged so whoops

So who took those banquet photos?

Okay, this is the first phone bg we get, which is obviously Victor’s phone:

And these are the pictures he took:

Next, we get our fav swiss skater’s phone:

And he took these photos:

Now the best (and last) one is this pirozhki bg which I’m assuming is Yurio’s:

AND HERE IS THE BEST PART:

NOT ONLY DID YURIO HAVE ALL OF THE PICS FROM VICTOR AND CHRIS’S PHONE BUT HE ALSO HAS HIS OWN AND THE VICTUURI DANCING ONES WHICH MAKES ME WONDER, WHO ACTUALLY TOOK HOLD OF YURIO’S PHONE THAT NIGHT? AND YURIO KEPT THESE PHOTOS TO HIMSELF? OMFG

{The vet told this user their budgie was a ‘sub par specimen’ because one of his nostrils is too large and the other is too small, plus his beak is misshapen. this prompted the user to cry directly onto their budgie son}

it’s fine tho really

“Sorry! I thought you might be getting sick. I didn’t mean to startle you.”

Huevemeber Day 24: This is fanart for @uncannycookie‘s wonderful, wonderful fics cause I absolutely love them and they are killing me. This scene is actually from the second one, And Nearly Letting Go, but I totally recommend reading Of Cold Hands Reaching first! 100% worth your time if you like this pairing.

It was also their birthday the other day so Happy Birthday as well!

I adored drawing Shigeo with bed hair, it is by far his cutest form hahaha. I never know what to do with Teruki’s hair at the best of times though… I’m inclined to have him grow it out again (they are around 16 in this pic) but that’s just cause I have the selfish desire to give him a ponytail when he’s older.

Nothin’ like a good old milkshake pozol date ♥ ♥ ♥

I have other things planned for the actual 14th, but in case helping my sister with her wedding shopping prevents me from completing the other stuff I wanted to do, consider this my early celebration pic. Happy chocolate-! I mean Valentine’s day!

Another batch of requests for people on Reddit! (and the last for now)

She was so much closer than he’d realized, their faces inches apart, her expression wide and hesitant and vulnerable.

“My Lady,” he whispered. He was helpless in the ocean of blue that was her eyes; whatever had seemed so awful also seemed very far away. Nothing was dark or brutal or hopeless when they were this close, and he wasn’t the only one moving closer.


My vacations are oveerr so now It will take me more time to be able to post any finished pics, sadly D:. I have to paint a lot of new pieces for a college project ´v` BUT I will still have tons of doodles.

While my actual piece for State of Grace (by the awesome @dragonsinparis) is on the making (it won’t show up until at least next month thanks to all this stuff I gotta paint), get this quickie for one of the moments that broke me.
GO READ THAT THING AND SHATTER INTO TINY PIECES WITH ME. THIS FIC IS FLAWLES JUST GO i-i
