i'm getting seriously emotional

So I’ve been re-skimming some LotR in between looking for new books to read and Boromir mentions his brother like, three times in the Council of Elrond. And I realize it’s dramatic foreshadowing shit, but consider (modern au apparently) Boromir who just talks about his brother all the time and has so many pictures:

“Hobbits like poetry? My brother won a poetry contest in third grade!!! You know who’d love to hear more about Dwarves? My brother. Gosh, I can’t wait until we all get to Minas Tirith so I can show you all the best things about my city and you can meet my brother.”


“Yeah, I’ve seen Boromir, he’s a great dude,” says Eomer, “but I hear he talks about his brother a lot?”


“How do I know you’ve actually met my brother?” asks Faramir. “And how do you know who I am?”

“… I have seen probably a hundred pictures of you and heard the stories behind all of them,” says Frodo.

“Ah,” says Faramir, resigned. “Yeah, okay, you’ve met him.”

Today, Home turns two years old ♥

(And I thought I’d wrap it up in three months… Whoops)! Thank you for your constant support, patience, and kudos (all 12,700 of them?)!! This project has really gotten me through some tough anxiety (and lupus, apparently) whilst introducing me to the wonderful, talented, empathetic, and creative sterek fandom. I’m honored to be friends with so many of you *hugs*

The final chapter is still in progress, as is book!Home! I’m eager to share both with you soon. ♥

since i’m ranting about girl guides in Poland here’s more:

  • started war preparations in APRIL 1939 because they were smart and they knew what was coming. by august they had 75 training camps next to german border and was working close with female military training organisations
  • meanwhile boy scouts WERE ON HOLIDAYS, hiking and shit
  • when the war broke girls were taking care of civilians and making sure that there’s no panic
  • part of the Gray Ranks from the very beginning
  • the Gray Ranks as in working in conspiracy and being considered soldiers no matter how old they were
  • LITTLE GIRLS RUNNING AROUND WITH SECRET MESSAGES AND SPREADING PROPAGANDA LIKE FIRE
  • big girls training in secret to be nurses and doctors
  • they were not allowed to train with guns because that was manly thing to do
  • that didn’t stop them from making home-made weapons
  • organisation was taking care of orphans and helping Red Cross
  • couriers!
  • the only male courier i can think of is Jan Nowak-Jeziorański (great sad man)
  • but being liaisons was like THE job for girl scouts
  • but they didn’t forget what scouting was about in the first place
  • supporting young people in their development and guiding them into adulthood
  • they did whatever they could to help
  • and were ready to work when war was over and they had to start all over again

My book was accepted for the proposal stage of publishing

And they ask: how can you promote your book?

And I was like: “er…I have a tumblr blog with 18000 followers? At least some of them might buy it and read it…?”

I am so thankful for BAP. I didn’t even realize how much I’ve missed them. How much I missed seeing them on stage killing every single millisecond – while also just enjoying every moment on stage they have with their audience. I missed their stage presence and how they give their 102% with every single performance. I missed each of the members and also how much they just care for one another and how much it shows. And I missed their nonconformist music and their great all genre encompassing nature. I missed BAP. Thank you for coming back.

somebody made an Anti-GerIta blog

Wishing a very happy birthday to grace personified, Kerry Washington.

I figured now was as good a time as any to pay a bit of appreciation to the amazing Kerry Washington. I included these specific gifs because they’re things that come to my mind when I first think of her, like Josie, but also because these are things that she’s either opened my perspective to or eloquently fought for my point of view in a way that I never could, like politics and race. 

Putting this together made me a little teary eyed, to be honest. Kerry has such a fun, infectious personality and it’s amazing how her presence commands the attention of everyone in a room. I find a bit funny that just three years ago if anyone said her name I completely ignored it and now people can’t get it all the way out of their mouths before I nearly hyperventilate with excitement. 

She’s an amazing mentor. She’s a phenomenal actress. She’s a fantastic political activist. She almost needs her own holiday. So, here’s to the woman that’s continuously proven herself to be more important than my schoolwork (since I can get KW stuff done and not homework). I hope that this turns out to be an incredible year for her.

Happy Birthday, Kerry!

(and if you’d like this post without my ramblings, it here :-)

So I found this page on Tumblr with all this great Oliver and Felicity stuff and I was like “awww” and then I found some Emma and Hook stuff and was like “awww” again and then I found some Skye and Ward stuff and now I’m throwing my phone across the room and crying in a corner Jesus Christ why did you tell me about these shows??

oh goodness.. where do I start?… okay.

Thank you all so very much for all the lovely messages and gifts.
You all have made my Birthday a much more enjoyable experience, I wouldn’t know what I would do if I didn’t have such amazing and supportive people in my life. My Birthday has never been my favourite time of year but with people like you in my life.. I just can’t help but smile and feel a warm glow in my heart.

You all believe in me and give me so much support, honestly you are all the reason I continue to do what I do. I love drawing. I love seeing you all react to my new art and saying such sweet things like “you’re improving” or “lovely art”. (that’s right I stalk all you’re tags~) and I love how it can actually inspire people to draw! I mean that’s amazing! The fact my art actually makes an impact on others peoples life’s just makes me smile so much!

You’ve all been so kind and amazing! So I just wanted to say thank you all so very much and I love you all u//v//u <3
