Character studies/sketches of a guy who’s shown up on the blog before, but who I have not yet named (publicly) for story reasons. :) Need to narrow down exactly where that scar goes at some point so I can keep everything as consistent as possible in the story telling. 

(Edit: Please don’t delete my captions. Thanks.)

I was watching GameGrumps StarTropics episode 6 and Dan started talking about a GREAT comic called Saga, and I’m glad he did because holy shit this comic needs so much more love.

I mean seriously it has everything

Not one but TWO women of color as lead roles

A subplot containing an adorable gay couple

An amazing agender character named “The Brand”

An object-head robotic race I’m in love with

A really great variety of unique and diverse races and species in the lore

GREAT writing

Small Snippet Of My ACOTAR Book

I literally just came up with it so don’t be surprised if it doesn’t make the final cut. The reason I’m doing this is because I want you guys to know I’m still working on/writing this thing. My book takes place after ACOWAR. 

Here we go:

He pressed his hand against her cheek, his thumb running down the contours of her face. “Is it so wrong to be worried about you?”

Her eyes fluttered and she almost melted into his touch. Almost melted into his embrace, his warmth, the happiness he could provide. It was all she had ever wanted. But then his scent washed over her, and her eyes rolled to the back of her head. All she could hear was a sickening crunch, her brother screaming. All she could see was blood. And bent wings. 

She ripped his hand off her face, her eyes flying open. Her throat felt dry and raw. Her nostrils flared and she jammed her pointer finger into his chest. “You’re the reason for all of this,” She snarled, baring her teeth. “I’m doing this. Don’t stop me or you’ll have another war on your hands”

She pushed past him and the moment their skin touched, she shivered. The Illyrian turned around, giving him a look he should have been able to decipher. But he failed to do so. “I don’t need to remind you the last time war was on our doorsteps” 

Very mysterious. It was planned to be this way. At some point I would have had to use names and that destroys the dramatic effect, don’t you think? 

At this point in (planning) my book I have all the characters planned out and about three-fourths of the plot. I’m just not exactly sure how I want the book to end. I’ve also begun to write small bits and pieces here and there and this happens to be one of them. 

I hope you guys liked it. May delete this later.

Harry Potter Aesthetics and Edits: Tom Marvolo Riddle (Lord Voldemort) from Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling

“When I first met young Mr Riddle, he was a quiet albeit brilliant boy, committed to becoming a first rate wizard. Not unlike others I’ve known. Not unlike yourself. If the monster existed it was buried deep within.”

 Horace Slughorn


Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” “My name is Legion,” he replied, “for we are many.”  // Of all the schizophrenic minor comic book characters named after a demon from the new testament to get a FX show.. Legion is by far the best.. Dance Aubrey Dance


Authors will write dozens of versions of the same book before any readers see it. To us, there are a hundred different stories nobody else will ever know.


literature moodboard; Kvothe

“I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. You may have heard of me.”


Because You’ll Never Meet Me by Leah Thomas

Oliver, what if people apart from you could see me as something, someone, deserving of happiness? Not as a hero, mind. Just as “any other boy.”

The idea frightens me. Coward that I am. Me, born of science and ambition gone wrong. I felt that wrongness every day, until you wrote to me. Until you infected me with wondrous, hopeful nonsense.

Frau Pruwitt has given me a book about a certain blind superhero. And now I am feeling something other than despicable.

What have you done to me, Oliver Paulot?
