I really wanted to take a moment to give a well-deserved shoutout to an incredibly gorgeous soul, @feyherba. She handcrafts these beautiful, organic products for your mind, body and soul. If you love organic, herbal splendor as much as I do, than I highly recommend checking out her Etsy shop. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.
So I finally completed this little challenge of mine. Took awhiiiiile because I took a break from it. Even then I rushed a few things, BUT LOOK WE MADE IT OKAY. Hella fun to doodle tho. I wanna try again with another character honestly.
Fandom: Deltora Quest Summary: As peace settles upon Deltora, Marilen is tasked with recording the life of Anna of Del. Pre-canon, mid-canon, post-canon. Characters: Marilen, Anna, Jasmine, Lief, Sharn, Doom, Barda. Pairings: Jarred/Anna, Lief/Jasmine Notes: I was working on a Jasmine-and-Doom prompt, but I couldn’t stop thinking about Anna. So, here is a non-linear story with several stories bundled up inside it. AO3. FFN.
– The hour was late, and her hand was sore, but Marilen did not stop her work. Words seemed to pour from her mind and onto the page. The steady breathing from Josef’s crib grounded her as she wrote. She had known that becoming the palace librarian would be a great task, and that recording in the Annals would be part of her life’s work. And she knew that some stories were of more importance than others, even if they did not outwardly appear to be so.
She took a moment to look upon the beautiful face of her sleeping son. She preferred to work with Josef in the room. After such a long time of war and death, it was hard to focus without knowing her son was safe. Losing him was unimaginable. But that was why the Annals were important to her; so she could record the stories that she might never truly understand. She turned the pages to the beginning of the particular account, and looked at the section title written in her own flourishing script:
Anna of Del
Four people who Marilen loved had approached her to request that she commemorate this woman into the Annals. She had spoken with them many times; listened to their stories, and she had taken pages of notes. Although she had never met the woman, and she never would, Marilen felt a connection to Anna that was as fine and lovely as Toran thread.
With a sigh, she set her pen down and shook out her hand. Researching a figure who was not widely known was a strange task. Her head was awash with little facts and stories and the emotions of the people who loved Anna enough to wish to see her immortalized seemed to always linger.
It had been Jasmine, of course, who had come to her first.
It’s pip here, out of hospital for the time being 😅 Hope you guys have had a better start to the year. Your wills are certainly strong for having survived thus far, during a time which feels like the world’s in a tumultuous state.
Because of the way things are unfolding in the world, particularly now with the toddler-in-chief in charge of the States, instead of abandoning this blog entirely, I’m going to revert it back to my personal one, as it is still my main blog. So that means more political, news-related, likely disjointed posts; in essence meaning it’s no longer going to be an iron man centric blog. I’ll still run my marvel side blog over at chrishemswortth with Jules, but since a lot of you still follow this blog, I thought I’d make this post. So please feel free to unfollow as you like, because I know politics is not some people’s cup of tea.
Stay strong my friends. And power to ya in the years to come ✌️
During dinner, my uncle revealed another weird autobiographical story. We were talking about the chemistry of bananas, and I brought up the fact that isoamyl acetate, responsible for the distinctive scent and flavor of banana, is the same chemical that’s found in honey bee attack pheromones.
My uncle explained that isoamyl acetate is used when testing the safety of gas masks. They make small glass vials in cardboard tubes that you can crush in an enclosed space, and if you smell banana while wearing a gas mask, there’s a leak. Apparently, he used to buy dozens of these little vials, and then go somewhere in public to covertly smash them, just to watch people try to figure out where the intense banana smell was coming from.
