years down the line, when they’ve both been forcibly dragged into adulthood, and the rush of “i love you i want you i want to stare into your eyes forever” calms down a bit, maintaining the romance gets harder. in many ways, their relationship is better now than it’s ever been - now that isak is more aware of even’s boundaries, now that even has more of a grasp on isak’s relationship with his parents and the internalized homophobia he dealt with for years. they’ve fallen into a routine, and it’s not bad exactly, but a part of even misses when it would take him a few minutes in the morning to remember that’s isak lying next to him, when he’d still get butterflies in his stomach every time isak let himself fully look at him.
still, he’s surprised on their anniversary when isak throws down his fancy napkin at this fancy restaurant and asks, “do you remember our first kiss? fuck it, do you think it’d be less awkward a second time?” his eyes are shining. “let’s recreate it?”
and, well, isak’s not the spontaneous one in their relationship. even’s the one who fell in love with epic dramas at nine and made that his life calling. but after all these years, there are still layers of isak left for him to uncover.
“uh…we may be pushing our luck with breaking and entering a second time,” even says, and since when has even been the responsible one? it’s not a good look on him, but he’d already been chewed out by his assistant for blaming too many of his antics on artistic license. sooner or later, someone would call him out on his bullshit.
I swear I am seeing so much more new Cherik art than ever before and, honestly, I am just like YAY because this fandom is alive and beautiful and it makes me so happy people are continuing to produce such wonderful things.

Newt Tattoo Sleeve Cosplay Tutorial for People Who Think They Can't Do the Thing
I really wanted to contribute to Newtvember so here’s a tutorial for tattoo sleeves for people who cannot draw to save their lives. This tutorial also has the bonus of being really easy and inexpensive! (Ps sorry about my face >_<;)
It’s not for the greater good, it’s not for anyone else,
it’s just for him and he’s put himself last so often, so many times —
when you have a character that just remembers him and he has a flash of
personal agenda, it’s rewarding. I like it. I like those moments where
Cap gets to have a little nugget just for himself.
