They’re Going To Be Happy – an upbeat Johnlock playlist

8tracks | Spotify

A playlist for two smart idiots who are in love, and will get their happy ending someday… and for the fandom that’s usually filled with angst, but believes in that future happiness.

I love angsty playlists as much as the next person, but sometimes you really need upbeat, happy music to listen to as you think about your ship. There’s not an overabundance of playlists like this for Johnlock–for obvious reasons–so I decided to make one. Songs are about either one or both of their POVs. All of it’s fairly upbeat, and a solid 85% of it is happy. (The rest is an homage to the end of s2 + s3.)

I hope it brings you as much joy as it brings me! Go forth, have fun listening to a beautiful story arc, picture these two running around solving cases while pining, think about how they’re so in love, and remember that eventually they’re going to be happy. :)


-Mom, you know I love you a lot, right?
-Of course I do! That’s why I’m letting you go like this.


“Sentiment?” – “Something like that.”  |  a Captive Prince playlist

For the future kings known as Laurent of Vere and Damianos of Akielos, and for the evolution of their relationship together.

From their identities as individuals, to “slave and master” shifting towards something else, to desire and love… into (hopefully) a united partnership against the Regent and Kastor.


What a bunch of (colorful) a-holes. ✨

Approximate time: 7.5-8 hours. I do love the original black & white version, but I wanted to take on this challenge! References were used as much as possible, and I invented/guessed the rest.

If you want to share on Twitter, please RT here, where you can also see a side-by-side comparison between the original and the colored version. :)  And here it is on Instagram

So. Because I’m insane, I turned the fanfic The Act of Creation Will Be Your Salvation by scifigrl47 into a hardcover book. And got class credit for it. 100%, I may add. AND my professor wants it in the school gallery show. Heck yeah, man. It literally took weeks of work, but I am pleased.

Click here to see more details that didn’t fit on the photoset. Please.

If you have not read this fic, go do so. Seriously. I TURNED IT INTO A FREAKING ACTUAL BOOK. I would not have done that with something that isn’t quality, man.


Soooo I planned, designed, and constructed an Avengers popup book for my handmade books class from scratch. No, seriously. It took forever, and it required many, many experiments, but I AM SO PROUD OF THE WAY IT CAME OUT. Look at this monstrosity.

These pictures aren’t the best ever (weird lighting, and please excuse the background), and it’s really hard to show the structure well in photos… but it’s a hardcover book, about 17x23 inches when open. A tower comes up with all of the characters popping all the way around off of their respective logos (which I recreated from scratch in Illustrator in order to make them big without pixelation). The base has profiles on each of them. The information is partially from the website, but I also edited/added to it as per my liking. :P

The bottom right shows you kind of how it folds down and in on itself because, yes, it does close! Hallelujah. Popup book indeed. Oh, and the cover has nothing on it because it just has this really nice textured paper, which the picture doesn’t show too well. It’s nice in person though.

So… yup. Let me know what you guys think :D
