Let us know what you’d add to this list…we’re always looking for recommendations!

But it’s not entirely my fault that this has gone off on a ridiculous tangent. This morning, I had another embarrassing encounter with Barnes, who persists in believing (despite all evidence to the contrary) that Rupert Stanley-Ross is not merely my brother’s best friend, but also my secret suitor.

Why not? People do get married, when they care for one another. Don’t you think I’d look after you? You once said I was hard-working and clever. You thought I’d make a good husband then.

This file was created in Photoshop CS3, it should be cross-compatible amongst the most versions of Ps but that’s no guarantee. These are vector smart objects, they will resize to any size you’d like them to be just drag over the layer and resize as normal (if you rasterize them, they will lose that ability, and behave like pixel images). If you’d like to edit the vectors directly you can do so in Illustrator by right clicking the layer and selecting “Edit Contents.”

Credit not necessary, likes appreciated. Just go make some pretty stuff.

We did have such a happy life in the end. King and Queen of Camelot.

For cantering across the grass came a beautiful white horse, and astride it was a man, fair and lean and graceful. He held the reins lightly in one hand, as though they were simply for show – as though he had only to murmur a word and the animal would obey. He caught sight of me, and I dropped my burden and started to run, and by the time I’d reached the drive, he’d swung down from the saddle and taken a few steps in my direction, and I threw myself into his arms.

“And later, when the sun begins to sink and the infinite sky is streaked with red and gold, I’ll stroll out into the courtyard—perhaps even climb the steps to the gatehouse. And I’ll gaze across the Chasm to the other side of the island, where I can still sometimes catch sight of a curly-haired urchin running joyously through the tall purple grass, her faithful dog at her heels.
