Man Face Monday - These Eyes Have It Edition

It’s another Monday, my friends. But we shouldn’t have long faces because this puts us another week closer to the next new Arrow episode and possibly shirtless Oliver. Because I live in hope. Good weekend? Mine wasn’t bad at all. Not as cold as it has been, so I appreciated that. And I got a swell prompt to work on this month for the smut-a-thon in February. Yes. 

Why don’t we take a moment to check out some pretty? I noticed a theme this week as I put the edits together. Eyes. So intense. I hope you enjoy them too. 

Personally, I only like the super short hair when he’s in the League. Otherwise, it seems too severe. But hell, he’s always gorgeous. 

That sweet look. So soft an nice. 

Black and white. Obviously some of these are from season 4. The season of too many layers. His hotness is buried under there somewhere. I just know it. 

Check out this nifty gif from @arrow-ing. Love the eyes here.

Green Arrow. Blue eyes. Pillow mountains. What else could you want? 

This last one is my favorite. Back to Al Sahim times. He is just so lovely here. 

And there we have it for this week’s Man Face Monday, my dears. If you have missed previous ones, or want to check out some Washboard Wednesdays, do visit my dash. They are all there…for emergencies. I hope that you have a fantastic week ahead – one that’s full of happy and beautiful things. Because you are you and you deserve it. xx

Everything you (n)ever wanted to know about archery

Don’t watch Lord of the Rings, the Hunger Games, or Avatar. At least, not for the archery. Hollywood is stock full of misinformation and misrepresentation about archery. Sadly, not a lot of writers have the opportunity to really delve into the practice. So here is my all you wanted to know primer from how bows are constructed, to lining up and releasing the shot, to treating your friend’s nasty broadhead wound.

Edit: expanded the debunking section.

Man Face Monday - Fine Face Edition

Heya Awesome,

How are you doing on this fine day? I hope you are well and have recovered from last week’s episode, which seems to have inspired some love, hate and in-between. Today I would like to share some face with you. I’m kind of excited about how these turned out. 

Let’s begin with one of my favorites today. He looks so beautiful here. 

Self-recrimination face. You know he’s probably blaming himself for something here. 

Intense sketchy face. He’s looking at you again. 

Impossibly cute face face. Impossible. 

Many squiggles make this profile face. 

Finally. Wow. Eyes. Face. 

Well, that’s it for this week, Face fans. I hope that you have a great week, that you accomplish all of your endeavors and that you can make time each day to enjoy yourself, even if it’s just to stop and look at a pretty face.

Thank you for all your wonderful reviews. I appreciate all the time and thought you put into them! In previous seasons you (I think it was you at least!) had a red/blue theory based on the Matrix films. If I remember correctly, blue symbolized something happy but not real, red was painful but real. I couldn't help but notice that in Oliver's dream world Felicity was wearing her blue dress. In Oliver's real world memories and when he chose the real world, Felicity was wearing a red dress.

Oooh!!! Yes!!! You all know how much I love the red/blue theory!!! Season 3 was good times. I totally missed that, so excellent catch my friend! Yes, Felicity was wearing her Ray Palmer date dress at the wedding reception (boo hiss)

and then a lovely red ensemble in the real memories vision.

I’m sold. :)
