egg and dart

Limestone funerary stele (shaft) surmounted by two sphinxes

Cyprus

last quarter of the 5th century BCE

88.2 x 68.5cm


Elegant sphinxes are positioned back-to-back with their heads turned so that they could be seen in three-quarters perspective. The calm beauty of the creature’s head, the form of the palmettes, and the egg and dart molding that decorates the base of the platform are typical of Greek art of the fifth century BCE.

Sorry for the delayed wait, but Bloom is delivering some more eggs again! No edited eggs this time, because so many people wanted an egg, and it really surprised me! But I still randomised the Pokemon, so I’m going to tag everyone with the Pokemon they got!

alaa-rb  asked:

She's one hot grandma alright ! I was wondering when were you going to draw something from your OC story, even though in already on cloud 9 with your lapidot AU :> . Mind me asking, where do you get your OC story inspiration? in terms of clothing and such :]

in my OC folder there are three folders that look like this

and if you click ‘clothing’ it takes you to a magical world of this

and that’s just the tip of the iceberg………….I tend to collect a heap of references for clothing and background details, even for AUs (my Seelie AU folder back in the day was a fucking mess let me tell you….)

that being said I have a few favourite detail designs I fall back on where clothing is concerned in Among the Hollow. I use two in particular very often: Scrolls + Egg and Dart

Prompt: married Eggsy with children and single Harry, still pining for Eggsy's love.

@arsenicarithmetic

Soft strains of music provide a soundtrack to the breaking of Harry’s heart.

He’s always hoped to see Eggsy this way, all dressed up, face flushed with excitement, eagerness in every word that he says.

He’s always hoped to hear the words ‘I do’ on Eggsy’s lips, honeyed syllables that Harry could kiss away.

Harry gets his wish. The wedding is as grand an affair as he could have asked for. Eggsy deserves only the best, after all. He looks happier than Harry has ever seen him, head thrown back in laughter at something Roxy has said.

Harry lets his eyes linger on the way Eggsy’s suit fits him. Spectacularly cut, of course. The best Kingsman could provide. He tears his eyes away long before he has looked his fill. He’s not allowed to do more than look now, and the confinement is painful.

Movement catches his eye, dragging it back in Eggsy’s direction.

Eggsy’s husband has joined the small group, slides his arm around Eggsy’s waist and drops a kiss on his head.

Harry’s hand tightens imperceptibly around his champagne glass as Eggsy tilts his head up, silently asking for another.

Jack gives it to him, comes away smiling. They both are.

Maybe it was the Southern drawl. Maybe it was the proud, swaggering walk all the Statesmen seemed to possess. Maybe, Harry begrudgingly admits, it’s the fact that Jack is a genuinely good man.

Good men deserve each other. Harry knows he hasn’t been good for a long time. He thought he might be, briefly, when Eggsy looked at him like he’d hung the sun in the sky. He knows now that he isn’t. Good men get happy endings.

Harry is one of the every last to leave the wedding. He wants to see Eggsy like this as long as he can, radiating happiness. It’s beautiful. It’s heartbreaking.

-

“Eggsy!” That’s all the warning they get before Daisy barrels into Harry’s office, throwing herself into Eggsy’s lap.

Eggsy’s face splits into a wide grin. “C’mere,” he says, wrapping his arms around her and peppering her face with kisses. “How’s my little flower, today?”

“Sorry,” says a voice from the doorway, and Harry winces inwardly. “I tried to stop her from coming in–I didn’t want to interrupt–but…” Jack trails off with the shrug of one shoulder and an apologetic smile.

Harry waves it off, seemingly nonchalant. “Children will do as they please,” he says. “We were nearly done here anyways.”

Eggsy glances up at that. “We were? I thought we still had to go over-”

But Harry cuts him off with a shake of his head. “That will hold for another day or two, at the least. It isn’t often that you and Jack are both off at the same time. Take the rest of the day,” he says, trying to sound gracious.

“You serious?” Eggs asks, eyebrows darting upwards in surprise.

“Go,” harry says in lieu of a reply. “Before I change my mind.”

Eggsy’s smile only grows wider and it makes Harry’s heart ache. He used to dream that smile would be his someday. He still does, sometimes. The subconscious is a treacherous thing.

“Thanks, Harry. You’re the best,” Eggsy says, standing and settling Daisy on his hip.

Harry grits his teeth rather than protest. Eggsy’s best is standing in the doorway staring at the three of them. “Go on, then,” he says, tilting his head.

Eggsy goes. Harry’s heart goes with him.

———————————————–

Oliver woke up to the sound of surf pounding on rocks.  He could feel the breeze from the open windows blowing across his face, cooling the room that was already warmed from the steadily rising sun.  He was still getting used to the warm wash of contentment that flooded him each time he woke up with her at his side.  There was something more today, something niggling at the back of his mind but he was still too fuzzy with sleep to pin it down.

Preference #69 Kitchen Activities

GUYS! I love this one, I had so much fun writing it.

Liam- Your parents were coming over for dinner to make sure that you and Liam moving in together were doing well and adjusting to the new lifestyle. You had planned to make a three course meal to impress them and for that to work out, you needed your boyfriend’s help in the kitchen. You took care of the entree and dessert while Liam cooked some meat and side dishes. To make sure the food was ideal, you tasted each other’s and gave feedback. It was a perfect team work and your parents were positively stunned.

Zayn- You were washing the dishes and Zayn was drying the items you handed him. When you thought he was being too slow, you splashed him with some water and soap. Looking at you in disbelief, he thought of a quick revenge he filled a cup with water and poured it on you. “That’s not fair! You didn’t get nearly as wet,” you said while laughing. Turning the water off, you got closer to him cupped his face with one hand while the other one was hidden behind you with another glass of water. As he was about to kiss you, you poured water into his pants. Pretending it was an accident you said “Oops,” and walked away. “It isn’t over babe,” he shouted behind you.

Harry- After hearing for the billionth time “I used to work in a bakery,” you finally exploded. “Honey the whole world knows! What I want to see, is you actually baking something for me,” you wanted to challenge him. “Only if you will too. Let’s call it a bake off, and the winner gets to do whatever he/she wants with the other, right here, on this kitchen counter.” You couldn’t turn down the amazing challenge before you. “Deal,” you agreed and immediately started grabbing eggs and flour. He ended up making a three layer vanilla cake, while you made eclairs. You won, even Harry admitted it so in return you had the best night of the month.

Niall- While watching Rachael Ray on TV, Niall felt inspired to try out the pasta dish she was making which included bacon, eggs, and cream. When he darted out of the living room and into the kitchen, you were confused so you followed him. “What are you doing, love?” “I wanna try her recipe out,” you offered to help him but he waved your offer off and told you to sit back and wait for lunch to be ready. Your stomach was grumbling and your eyes were looking at Niall’s skillful hands as he was preparing the food. After twenty minutes, he approached the table with two plates and you started eating. It was exquisite “I think you’ve got a knack for this,” you complimented leaving him bashful and proud.

Louis- Neither of you knew how to cook. You usually ordered take out or microwaved things pre-made but you grew tired of the same food so you called in your mom to teach you the basics of cooking. Both you and Louis were trying to learn but it just wasn’t interesting. As your mother showed you the proper way to chop zucchini, you and Louis started cutting the vegetable at random because you didn’t pay attention to the instructions. Exasperated and crestfallen, your mom sat back and simply watched you two mess around and throw each other pieces of bread and zucchini having the time of your life. “You two sure are meant for one another,” she admitted.
