Godhead’s heavy hoofbeats can be heard approaching and you look around the forest edge. He doesn’t come from there, though. He appears at the top of the waterfall, next to the river as it goes over the edge of the small cliff. Godhead rears back, going up on his hind legs. His front legs paw at the air as he lets out a noise that sounds victorious, even though they lost the race. But you’re not paying much attention to the horse. You’re more interested in Dave.
The way the sun is hitting his hair just right, and how the strands are pushed back from his forehead by the wind. The way his hands grip the reins. His legs ending comfortably in boots that rest in the stirrups. The way his expression has softened. His cheeks are slightly pink from the wind. His eyes are rubies in the light. His lips are parted slightly and more relaxed than you’ve seen them in a while. They turn upward at the corners. Oh gog you just want to kiss those lips.
It feels weird after almost a week and a half of drawing exclusively squares that i then switch to a gem made almost entirely of curves, but i had to doodle Moonstone(?) at least once because i love that shes actually just one (1) huge bundle of Nerves. She probably just found out WHO shes going to be representing in court and shes Not Happy About It.
(this is also lowkey for @delmarvian because a certain little birdy informed me she likes the panicked nerdy types. Enjoy binch~)
color-coded highlighters, hand-drawn diagrams, small neat handwriting, straight lines, studying for 5 hours straight, chamomile tea, teaching your friends the material to help you understand it.
sitting on your bedroom floor with your notes spread out around you, 20 different color gel pens, doodles everywhere, changing subject every 10 minutes, too much soda, talking to yourself, pen marks on your face.
studying in the library, all your notes in one scratch pad, cramming everything in the week before the exam, glasses of water, not taking breaks cause you want to get it over with, falling asleep on your notes.
sitting in the grass with the sun on your face, bullet journals, yoga pants, daisy stickers, arizona green tea, neat cursive handwriting, using highlighter on your own notes. Taking a break every half hour to stretch and enjoy the sunshine.
sitting on your bed with your books spread around the room, rock music playing in the background, black pens, texting your friends the whole time, sweet black coffee, messy ponytail.
messy notes, everything in biro, all your books have damaged spines, there's a box of wine on your desk that's half empty by the time you've finished studying. taking selfies to prove to your friends that you tried.
you don't study. you pass everything anyway.
