i really really want this book guys

Take a Break

I’m taking a break from tumblr. Like I’m completely logging off and everything for a few days. Maybe longer.

Im having some bad mental health days and with that comes the idea that my art is the worst. I’m not improving as quickly as I’d like. I need to go back to traditional art for awhile, read some books, center myself. I am getting short tempered, stressed, and feeling like a really unpleasant person and I don’t want that to be who I am.

It also means, even though I just started it, I’m putting my ask blog on hold.

If you need to get in touch with me, I do have a twitter. I don’t post a lot on there and mostly follow funny twitter accounts and other art “blogs” but I do check it regularly. You can find me @Lozeyjones on twitter. 

I’ll reblog this once more for the day crowd but as of now I’m taking a vacation away from this site. I can’t handle much anymore.

Again, my twitter is @lozeyjones

I also check deviantart frequently (every day) so you can find me there as just Lozey.

I’m sorry I’ll be absent for awhile, but I do think that to feel better about myself and my art, I need to get off of this website to cool down and rethink things.

I hope everyone else is doing fine, however. I’ll just be on for the next 24 hours so if you need to let me know anything, tell me now or I won’t be able to get back to you for some time.

Thanks for understanding, and goodnight <3

…”The music was a blade, knifing through the dark. The melody sang and the Corsai arced back as one, as if repelled by the single, massive beam. They hissed like steam and broke apart, and fell away beneath the music…”

Kaltain Rompier!

I know it looks really unfinished (dear god the ‘fire’ is dreadful-.-) but I don’t have time to work on it anymore:( It was more of a therapeutic image for me to get stress down but I love her so much, and really enjoyed drawing her so I’ll certainly want to draw some proper book scenes including her!

Also guys is there any specific character or scene from either the TOG or ACOTAR you’d like to see?

Hey guys! Does anyone have any comic recommendations/a place to start within the comics for someone (me) that really wants to read a Black Widow storyline or arc, a Hawkeye storyline or arc, or both of them together? I’m really trying to find a few series to read, but I’m struggling to jump into the comic book realm because there are so many teams/universes/variations/storylines and I just don’t know which ones to follow or where to start. Can anyone help me out? :)

american comics are wild to me because sometimes on a rare occasion ill see a really brilliantly paneled page, and then literally the next page will make a mistake that is so basic i have never seen a manga artist make a similar panelling mistake

This semester is killing me so I don’t have time to reread and review, but I just wanted to take some time and rec this book to you guys. I’m a ballerina, and I often find the portrayal of ballet in films and books to be really lacking, so I don’t read or watch too many of them, but this has been one of my favourite books since I was 13.

I don’t think it’s very popular? But it ought to be, because it tackles a LOT of really interesting things with nuance and care AND the depiction of ballet is really honest. Ballet has a race problem and it has a class problem, and Dancer sits at the intersection of the two. But there’re also the more mundane things every dancer goes through: there’s always someone who is better, always someone who wants it more, and there’s always the infuriating asshole who might not want it as much, but is naturally more gifted than you. Auditions suck, summer intensives are stressful, and competing for parts makes you doubt your own abilities. But ultimately, it’s worth it for the joy you feel when you’re dancing.


Plus, honestly, I remember loving the romance in this book soooooooooooo much.

My Girl II

Disclaimer: I don’t own anything from the Potterverse!

Enjoy!


The smell of books, parchment, and ink filled your lungs as you flipped through the pages of The Standard Book of Spells. You were, as you named it, merely light-reading. Refreshing your memory with the list of spells and their functions, trying to forget the events that transpired earlier.

James was a total git.

You nodded to yourself in confirmation. That’s right. He was a git and you were never going to talk to him again unless he apologized. You didn’t mind his jokes, even the jokes he made about you, but the one he made earlier was just pushing his luck.

It’s not that the thought of you and James dating was totally out of the question. Because you have thought about it before, during the late hours of the night when you laid awake in your bed staring up at the canopy ceiling of your four-poster bed. Also, you may have had a childhood crush on him but everything is different now. James is different, you’re different. So any thought about that topic after that night was swiftly eradicated.

Besides, you let out a small sigh, he had Lily right?

You and Lily were friends. The redheaded girl always had your back whenever James and Sirius tried to bully persuade you to make their homework for them, and she was always ready to listen to whatever you had to say. Lily was the sweetest person you knew and anyone would be lucky to have her.

Your train of thought broke when you heard the chair in front of you get dragged out from under the table. You looked up to see Remus flash you a sheepish smile and sit down, gingerly placing his book on the table. “Sirius wants you to go back to the common room.” He informed you quietly and opened his book to start reading.

You rolled your e/c eyes. “So you’re here to pick me up?”

Remus shrugged. “Not if you want to stay here. Then I’ll be happy to accompany you.” He flashed you one of his rare grins and you laughed, making Madam Pince clear her throat. You shot her an apologetic glance before turning back to your friend.

“You’re the best Rem, if Sirius wants me to go back, he should’ve come pick me up himself.”

“He can’t. He and James are banned from entering the library for the rest of the year, remember?”

Your mouth formed a perfect ‘o’ as you just remembered that fact. The duo nearly set the entire library on fire while they were studying for their exam on charms. Sirius gave up on studying five minutes into it and he coaxed James out of it as well and they tried practicing their little spells. You hummed thoughtfully and looked at Remus who had his eyes fixed on the pages of his book.

“You’re staring.” He stated beneath his breath and you smiled at him.

“I was just thinking.”

Remus snorted in amusement. “A Knut for your thoughts?”

You rolled your eyes at him playfully. “Make it a Galleon and we’ll see.” You drummed your fingers on the wooden surface of the table softly, “I’m not going back to the common room with you any time soon, Remus.” You informed him. “I don’t want to have to deal with whatever happened earlier yet.”

Remus nodded in understanding, he knew your mind was still in a gutter. He was pretty surprised with James’ proposal earlier as well. Wasn’t it always Lily? Did he miss something? He racked his brain for clues, even subtle ones. He knew you sort of fancied James in a way, and if the circumstances were different, he would’ve loved to support you and tell you not to hold back, but with the other person in question clearly not showing any interest in reciprocation and only showing affection to the muggle-born, redheaded girl; he kept his mouth shut. Like he always did… and it made him feel terrible.

Hours later, it was nearly dinner time and Remus had gone off to the Great Hall. You actually had to force him to go since he didn’t want to leave you behind. He promised to come back with some grub for you, because even if he denied it, he was starving. Madam Pince left to eat her supper as well leaving you alone in the large, candlelit library. You had long removed your robe and draped it over the chair next to you.

You tied your hair up into a bun and rolled up your sleeves.

“Psst.”

Your eyes roamed the deserted library, “Psst.” Came the whisper again and you took out your wand and got up of your seat. “Who’s there?” You questioned. You hoped it was anyone but a Slytherin or Peeves. Someone then hugged you tightly from behind making you yelp in surprise.

You turned and that someone took off a cloak, revealing the messy haired, glasses wearing idiot you called a friend. You frowned. Well you’d rather deal with a Slytherin of Peeves now instead of James Potter. You pushed him away and sat back down, huffing in irritation.

James cleared his throat and sat opposite of you, where Remus previously sat. “Hey, I brought you something to eat. You must be starving.” He quietly said and placed some sandwiches and treacle tarts on the table in front of you.

“Remus was going to bring me food.”

“Remus is not coming back here for a while.” He sounded a little cheerful at the proclamation which annoyed you more.

You sighed in realization. Oh of course. Remus may be your friend, but he was James’ friend too. You should’ve seen this coming. “James I’m not continuing this conversation until you apologize.”

“I’m not apologizing.” He deadpanned.

Your eyes flickered to him in anger. “Typical! You never really do apologize, even when you play pranks on me or got me into trouble!”

“Y/N, listen to me-”

“No, James. You listen. I’m tired alright? You can’t just boss me around like you do with Peter or Remus or sometimes even Sirius. I’m not your girl, I’m not your property. And… and…” You were nearly hyperventilating now, your emotions seemingly getting the better of you. “And you can’t just ask me out on a whim thinking I’ll accept when you obviously like another girl! I am not going to be some fling!” You cry out and buried your face in your hands in frustration. Oh Merlin… this was not what you had in mind.

Silence stretched making you think that maybe he left. Leaving you like an ugly mess until you felt his cold hands peeling yours away from your face. “Y/N, I’m sorry.”

You faced him uncertainly and your eyes caught his. “I’m sorry I wasn’t really thinking about how you felt. I know a can be a…”

“A bastard.” You supplied.

“Alright, a bastard sometimes.”

All the time you mentally thought.

“But I just wanted you to know that I really do like you very much.” He finished, his eyes still on you, his gaze never faltering.

You looked away first. “Please James, you honestly think I could believe you? Not once have you shown the slightest interest in me. It was always Evans this, Evans that. Now you’re suddenly Y/N, Y/N, Y/N?”

“You’re my girl, Y/N. Evans was a way to hide my feelings for you since Sirius caught me staring at you one time when you and her were talking. I became flustered and blurted out that I was looking at Lily instead and the lie stuck until now.” His hands still held yours and you could feel his slowly warming up and you just noticed that he was blushing. Actually blushing, and that made you blush too. You had never held hands with James before and it felt nice and it made you long to hold his hand any time you wanted to.  

“I fell in love with the girl who injured my foot on the first train ride to Hogwarts, and I fell hard.” He sincerely said, “As cliché as it sounds, it’s true. I hope you believe me.”

You bit your lower lip. You wanted to believe him, you really did. But this was all too good to be true. You removed your hands from his and hugged yourself. James looked crestfallen. “I think I’ll need to sleep on it.” You mumbled and lowered your gaze. You couldn’t face him after he looked so devastated. You could hear him stand up from his seat but still you didn’t look at him.

“It’s all right, I’ll wait for you.” He told you and threw his Invisibility Cloak on. You could hear his footsteps softly walk away but before he reached the door you called out to him.

“James?”

“Yes?” You heard him reply from afar.

“No more lies, please?” You tried to keep your voice level but it shook fervently.

“No more lies.” He agreed and you could feel him crack into a grin as he left the library shutting the doors with a soft thud.

A/N: So, I guess I just wanted to say that this chapter is more filler, I really had no ideas for Capture the Flag other than how it went in the books/movie. So.. enjoy. More updates coming soon!

I picked at a little bit of food, hoping Four wasn’t still mad at me, and that I was showing him I belong in his life. I just want him to be proud of his little sister, and forgive me for the pain I helped cause. Honestly, I never meant to hurt him or anyone really. I just wanted to be good enough for them, and everyone I loved.

“I’ll catch ya guys later.” I smiled as I got up, not wanting to overstay my welcome. I made my way back to the dorms and relaxed for a little bit. I was excited to play capture the flag, even though it was just another test for us initiates.

“Ready to lose tonight stiff?” Craig pushed me out of bed, causing me to crash to the ground. A few other guys laughed.

I stood up and pushed my way around Craig.

“Aww, looks like the stiff’s feelings got hurt.” He laughed again. I just kept moving, and wandered around until it was time to catch the train.

Once everyone was on the train, and it was picking up speed, Eric and Four looked around at everyone.

“Okay guys, tonight’s game is sort of like capture the flag.” Eric spoke up, and dropped a bag on the ground. “These are your weapons.”

“What kind of a gun is that?” Craig spoke up, and instantly fell back against the train wall in pain.

“Neuro stim darts.” Four spoke up. “Simulates the pain of a real gunshot.”

“If there aren’t any questions, then I think it’s time to choose the teams.” Eric looked around, and no one spoke up.

“Alright Eric, you pick first. You’re going to need it.”

“I think I’ll take…” Eric stepped around, stopping in front of me. “Sin.” Eric looked back at Four, and he looked pissed.

“If you want to lose, go for it.” Four smiled.

“I need someone to blame, don’t I?” Eric smiled, tossing me a gun. The rest of the teams were picked after that, and thankfully Craig wasn’t on mine.

As we got near our drop off point, we jumped off the train. Eric gathered us around and helped us come up with a plan.

“We should put the flag up high, we get a good vantage point and easier guarding. There’s nowhere to run, so we can trap them.”

“Or, they can corner us and make it easier to knock us out and take the flag. Not all of us can fit up high, leaving too many openings.” I pointed out.

“What do you know anyways, stiff?” One of the dauntless born glared at me as I spoke.

“She’s right.” Eric said, looking bored.

“What if we keep the flag on one of us. Half go ahead, and the other half guards the person with the flag while both groups push ahead to find their flag.” An Erudite transfer, Hannah I think her name was, had spoken up.

“It has its flaws, but I think it could work.” I considered the idea.

“Well, what do you think could go wrong, Sin?” Hannah smiled at me a little.

“It’s dependent on the guard group keeping an eye on their surroundings and on the person with the flag. Take your eye off either, and it fails. The other team can easily break the formation and knock down who’s got the flag.” I looked around as I spoke. “However, I think we should try it. They are going to send their team out in two groups, one to defend their flag and the other to find ours.”

“Good idea Hannah. Let’s run with it. Sin, tie the flag to your belt loop.” He said tossing it to me. He pointed out a group to guard and a group to go ahead first.

Things seemed to be going okay until I noticed the group around me thinning out and people falling in pain. Around us was the merry go round.

Suddenly, in front of me was Four.

“Scared Sin?” He looked me over.

“Never.” I raised my gun to shoot him, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. Four did the same, but he hesitated. I aimed downward, and shot his foot. I saw him go down and I ran past, apologizing.

On the neck of one of the horses, I saw their flag and ran as fast as I could, grabbing it. I looked behind me and saw some of my team cheering as Four’s team looked defeated.

Eric stepped forward and grabbed both flags, and he leaned down and whispered in my ear, “Congrats Sin.”

OH MY GOD YOU'RE A HAL 9000 STAN

I HAVE BEEN DISCOVERED 

I just really, really love 2001: A Space Odyssey, both the movie and the book. And I’ve read 2010 where we learn a lot about HAL and I just :( leave him alone!!!  He just wants to complete the mission!!

Also he’s 100% more interesting than the humans which was a choice made by Arthur C. Clarke and Kubrick that I fucking love :’)

The red eye is just a real interesting guy!

The lines between how you and Alex behave together in public and how you behave in private are starting to blur. The physical affection that you use around other people is starting to slip into your interactions at home, and you’re not sure how or when it started happening, but you’ve found that thinking too hard about how real your ‘relationship’ feels and what that means for the two of you is a little scary, so you just push it to the back of your mind. Besides, you like cuddling while watching Netflix, and Alex certainly hasn’t protested the few absent minded good morning kisses you’ve given him over coffee. It doesn’t feel like your routines have changed at all, yet somehow you naturally gravitate towards spending more time at home, just the two of you, rather than inviting friends round.

I’ve loved Psylocke for so long. She’s a really, really strong badass female character in this comic book world where a lot of times the women don’t get to be strong and badass. You see a lot of superheroes [who] don’t always want to kill, and they’ll avoid it if they can. She’s never had a problem killing, and I like that she was the bad guy that had no problem being the bad guy. She’s telekinetic and telepathic so she can read your mind.

Do you ever read a book with a really great romance and start crying over the fact that you’ve never been kissed
