Heir of Fire alternative cover. The art belongs to the one and only @charliebowater . She is one of my favourite artists and I absolutely adore how alive feel the characters she recreates. I believe that this one is not part of her ToG paintings but when I saw it I could not stop thinking about Aelin in HoF. The atmosphere of the painting is a reflection of Aelin’s heart. In HoF she is in a very dark place, almost like she is drowning but she fights for herself and in the end, she finds her light - her fire and Rowan, and herself. She is the fireheart we all love.

mare|ena
y'all i had so much fun cosplaying mare barrow. i literally felt like such a kickass princess because i did this in honor of being discharged from the mental hospital (that story is somewhere else on my page)

***PLEASE NOTE. I DID NOT DO THIS TO WHITEWASH MARE BARROW. A LIT WOC BETTER PLAY HER IN THE MOVIE. I JUST WANTED TO HAVE FUN AND FEEL STRONG***

what i did: half of my face is mareena. the other half is mare. one the mareena side i tried to look cold and dead like a silver hence the cool tone foundation and dark makeup. basically, i did my very best to be silver and even added a silver flush that you can see if you look closely.
on the other side- i made myself look beat up and worn down like mare. i added as much color and damage to my face ask possible. i also attempted some pretty terrible looking lightning scars.

***ANOTHER NOTE: NOTICE HOW HALFWAY UP MY CARTILEGE ON THE MAREENA SIDE I HAVE A NEW PIERCING. IN HONOR OF MARE, I’M GETTING AS MANY AS HER, ONE FOR EACH SIBLING. AND ON THE OTHER SIDE, UP IN MY ROOK, I HAVE MY FAVORITE PIERCING FOR CAL. GOING TO PUT A RED STONE IN AS SOON AS IT HEALS.***

this was so much fun. i hope everyone, including Queen Vic, loves it as much as I did. @vaveyard 🖤🖤🖤

I'm not sure if anybody's already said this, but when Sherlock catches the teacup in TLD everyone seems to focus on Sherlock dropping the gun to do so, symbolising him dropping everything else to save the gay love, but I can't help but think about what happens next, Sherlock has a gun pulled on him by a woman he trusts. D'you think that Sherlock abandoning the gun to save the tea is meant to parallel him ignoring the signs that Mary was dangerous because he was too focused on John's happiness?

Hmm, that’s pretty deep Nonny. Huh. I can see the metaphor / parallels here. Ouch.

When my country was occupied by the soviet union in 1940, my eyesight worsened considerably and stayed that way for many years. It’s not unusual for some countries to go through this. However, since 1991 my eyesight has improved and I don’t think I need my glasses as much as I did before. Although at this point, I would feel strange without them.
