Seventh tattoo! Took me three years since my last one to get it but it was worth the wait. The Raven Cycle became my favorite series last year. The story, the characters, the endless resources for memes… it makes me happy. @maggie-stiefvater and all the articles she writes, how she tells stories, really inspires me and meeting her at Hal-Con last year definitely helped my own writing and got me motivated again. Thank you for this quote and for putting Henry Cheng in book 4. I might be afraid of many things, but that isn’t going to stop me from being happy. (Tattoo done by Becky M)
A fan musical of the book Carry On by Rainbow Rowell using songs from many musicals (and a few non-musical songs). Each song is annotated with a quote or reference to the book to demonstrate where in the book the song is taking place. Sadly, the annotations are not available on mobile. :( (Please suggest any songs and/or quotes you feel need to be added!) Incredible cover art by @ddoale ! Go check out their blog; their art is fantastic and they are a really cool person!! (And so talented!!! Like holy s m o k e s)
Since the songs have annotations that don’t show up on mobile, I’ll put them under the cut! Hope you enjoy!!
Hey there, journalers! I finished my December layout today (just in time) and I want to share it with you. This is my favorite layout that I have done so far.
I always begin with my monthly calendar. I added one of my favorite Disney quotes to the top, icons and habits to the right, and more habits to the bottom.
The first week of December only has three days, so I had a lot of space to fill. I have a small water tracker, fruits and veggie tracker, notes, goals, exercises, and a tiny calendar overview.
The second week, and the ones that follow, are laid out like this:
I have separate sections for events and appointments, meals, and exercises. I have spaces for goals, notes, tiny calendar, water intake, and fruits and veggie tackers.
I also put quotes and washi tape on each weekly spread to keep me cheery.
Although each page has the same items, I moved them around a bit to make me feel less mundane and boring.
Every monthly spread has a period tracker. I fancied mine up a bit with my new stickers. This helps me because I have irregular periods and it’s good to keep track just so if something is super off, I can show my doctor.
I also added a December Memories page because I like to stay hopeful that something amazing will happen. Or at least something worthy of putting on this page.
There you have it. As always, feel free to message me any question you have about this layout or any journaling questions in general.
Ennard: *pouring soda on his face*
Ballora: What are you doing?
Ennard: Drinking a human beverage.
Ennard: *proceeds to smash a pizza in his face* Now I’m eating human food.
Ballora: Jesus Christ why do we have to put you in the human.
I’m pretty confident that his performance yesterday is one of my all-time favorites. It wasn’t absolutely clean due to the unfortunate (but not completely unexpected) mistake on the combo in the second half of the program, and some landings were not as perfect as they could be (considering his abilities). However, the most exciting thing about this performance is how Yuzuru was able to put himself together after disappointing SP, a couple of bad practices and the serious mistake in the middle of the program. He fought until the end, stayed very focused and determined to make up as much points as he could, even though he had to remake a half of the program and execute a bunch extremely challenging elements cleanly in the process. I’m so proud of him for not giving up and showing everyone that it is always worth it to fight for what you want.
And here is my personal list of the highlights of his performances:
Got a fourth highest FS score in history even with a serious mistake and -10 points in BV;
Put himself together and delivered even when some things went wrong;
He can change his layout if he needs to without major consequences or a decline in quality;
Has enough stamina to complete a ridiculously difficult program (quad lutz is coming #yolo);
Was able to execute two fantastic (2+ GOE) quad loops;
Got a perfect score for his 3A in the short program;
Got all level 4s on the spins & step sequence in the free program;
No Biellmann spin in the free, but there was a new fantastic exit from the spins;
+3 GOE-worthy 3A as a last jumping element in the free program right after his trademark Ina Bauer (in the last 20 seconds of the program);
Beautifully executed step sequence (right along with the music);
Caused multiple hysterical screams, especially after the emergency quad (poor fans; if only people knew what we are going through);
Also imagine Brian’s mental state in these 2 seconds after he realized what Yuzu was up to. It’s really hard to be Brian;
At last, I think the performance in the free can be a good confidence boost for Yuzuru before WC. Now he knows that he always has options. Hopefully it will help him to calm down and stop doubting himself too much
Andrew put his racquet down in front of Neil like a shield
The King’s Men by Nora Sakavic, chapter 17
This is definitely one of my favorite images, I’m not sure I can emphasize this enough.
Little points about this scene, anyway:
Riko uses a heavy racquet, we’re told this in The Raven King when Neil’s shopping for his one racquet: “Kevin used a heavy with the Ravens, but he’d switched to a light racquet after his injury. Riko still used one.“ (The Raven King, chapter 11)
When Aaron uses Neil’s own heavy racquet on Drake, we get this: “He brought Neil’s racquet up and around in an underhanded swing so hard and fast air whistled through the tight strings.” (TRK ch11) When Riko attacks Neil, this is the description: “Riko’s racquet got close enough that Neil heard wind whistling through the strings,“ (TKM ch17) There’s no way this isn’t a deliberate call back, just in case we weren’t sure Riko was about to kill Neil.
Also, this is one of the first things we learn about Andrew: “Two years ago some men attacked Nicky outside of a nightclub. Andrew was within his rights to defend Nicky, but he’d almost killed the four of them“ (The Foxhole Court, chapter 2)** And throughout the series we do see Andrew resort to violence easily enough, and generally it would be considered excessive. But in this scene, though? Maybe you could argue that he could have disarmed Riko instead of breaking his arm, but given that Riko was about to commit murder despite the crowd, I don’t think that would be enough to stop him. And whether it was or not - Andrew stopped him, and that’s it. No retaliation, no further violence, just this - “Andrew put his racquet down in front of Neil like a shield“. Making it clear he will protect Neil, and that’s all.
(and sure the situations are different in many ways, but most of those only matters if Andrew cares about the consequences, for him or for Neil or for the rest of the Foxes) ((and if you want to be optimistic and look at the situation with kindness (which, let’s be honest, i always want to do), it also comes down to a difference in Andrew in himself, who doesn’t need as much anymore to lose himself to violence when those he considers his are threatened))
Anyway though, none of this matters to my initial point, which is :
Andrew using his racquet to shield Neil
which is an image I’m never going to grow tired of.
**((now i think we should keep in mind that neil knows that second hand, and i’m pretty sure when it comes to a foster kid out of juvie defending his cousin against homophobic assault, facts are not presented with much sympathy. still we see enough of Andrew’s MO to know that it wasn’t far from the truth))
Okay so I gathered all of my favorite cute messages that Even has sent Isak, and put them all on this jar. of course I had to include all the notes Even’s left for Isak.. and then I picked out my fav txt messages and put them on there as well~ the emoji’s were especially fun to add
❤️🐬☀️🍆💯 (as you can tell I went a bit crazy with details, but i figured this fandom would appreciate it!) Ofc I had to include the “Alt er love” quote… and the lid is actually fanart I made for the fic “Litt sånn som deg” (@stormboxx
♥), because I wanted some SUPER ROMANTIC SOFTISEN to top of this DECLARATION OF LOVE. ✌

Author’s note: First imagine. The fact that I can even put “author’s note” is weird to me. I draw art, I don’t write it. Any who, constructive criticism would be appreciated. This seems like the perfect time for one of my favorite quotes: “Keep in mind that I’m an artist and I’m sensitive about my s#!t.” Please be gentle with me on this.
Great day to post since it’s Teen Wolf Tuesday and Valentine’s Day
It was Wednesday evening and you were
sitting with your boyfriend Isaac on the porch swing in your backyard. A light
breeze came through and blew your hair in the wind. The sky was turning pink
while the sun began setting. Your legs were curled under you while you were
leaning against Isaac. He had his arm wrapped around you while he kept the
porch swing swaying back and forth with his long legs.
You turned to the handsome werewolf next
to you grinning. “What?” Isaac said as he smirked back at you.
“Wanna hear a joke?”
“Not really, but I know you’re going to
tell it to me anyway”
“Yup.” You smiled back at him excitedly.
Your jokes were lame and corny, but that’s what you loved about them. “What do
you call the security guards outside Samsung stores?”
“I don’t know, what?”
“Guardians of the Galaxy!” You said
laughing at your own joke. Isaac just looked at you with a small smile.
GUYS. This is giving me so much hope. That whole scene during season two, when Slade attacks the arrow cave, is one of my favorites for a reason. They even appear to be in similar positions and stances just like in that episode. I am sure it is no coincidence that Felicity is wearing an extremely similar outfit to the one she wore in that episode.
Oliver was dating Sara at that time as well, just like he’s “dating” (I put dating in quotes because I’m using it as a loose term - the two have only kissed. they’re not getting married here, people) Susan Williams now. They are doing these parallels for a reason.
Season two was when the dynamic of Arrow changed. According to Stephen (and myself and many other members of the fandom), Oliver realized he was in love with Felicity in episode 2.06. From that point forward, aside from the atrocious Sara/Oliver relationship, they were building Olicity up. This season, they are doing the same.
I have full confidence that Oliver and Felicity are going to realize that they are still very much in love with one another by the end of the season, and there is evidence of that because of these parallels and because of the clues laid out this season.
so this morning, I woke up. As soon as I woke up, i went and brushed my teeth and washed my face. And then I thought to myself, ‘hm maybe I should put clothes on’. And then, I was like ‘I mean i could wear pjs to class’. And then I was like nope, I wanna be cute and cozy. So i pulled out a comfy pair of leggings, my favorite graphic tee and a big cozy cardigan. I then threw on some knit socks and my favorite boots (Bean boots).
Then, I grabbed my backpack and my keys and i headed out the door.
I was five minutes early to work.
At no point did any of the following thoughts cross my mind:
What will my boyfriend think of this outfit? What will my friends think of this outfit? What would my mom think of this outfit? My dad? My professors?
Here’s what I did ask myself:
What is the weather like outside? Will I need a jacket? Is this a comfy outfit? Is it warm enough.
The brilliant light that gleams off that woman… you dead people aren’t the only ones who see it.
Her light… also glares brightly in my vision.
Happy holidays @abeexli! Here’s your official @kdramasecretsanta gift. These two were my first kdrama otp (it was my first drama!) so it was really fun making this for you. I saw in your preferences that you like quotes and drama scenes, so I put my favorite quote with some of my favorite scenes of them from the drama. I hope you like it!
