it has been a while since i made a graphic

Arya Stark Appreciation Week - Day Two (Favorite Familial Relationship)

“I think [Arya] must be dead too.“ When she said that, it felt as though a giant hand were squeezing her chest. (ACOK)

And her lady mother, what would she say? Would she still want her back, after all the things she’d done? Arya chewed her lip and wondered. (ASOS)

arya and catelyn’s dynamic has been my favorite among the starks since the very beginning. i remember when i read a storm of swords i almost threw my book across the room as i got to the part where arya pulls cat’s body out of the river. and the first asoiaf graphic i ever made was a really ugly arya/cat picspam. its not exactly a warm fuzzy relationship. its complicated. arya worries her mother would not want her back because she didnt feel she could be a lady and cat does despair of arya at times (while still loving her as much as the rest of her children)  they dont even interact on page. but its my fave all the same. i think one of the reasons i love it so much is because they’re actually so similar and neither of them realizes it. on the surface they’re very different: cat has always comfortably embraced her role as a lady while arya has struggled to conform to it. but deep down? they’re both practical, intelligent, outspoken, no nonsense women with pragmatic minds. they are assertive and capable leaders. they act instinctively and boldly.they’re fiercely protective of those they love and vindictive against those who wrong them. it might be silly but i love how they both stan for the direwolves too. arya’s bond with her wolf (and her wolves) runs deep and catelyn has a great respect for their power. she “loves” summer for ripping out a man’s throat to save bran’s life. which feels a lot like something arya would think as well. 

“She is a fierce little thing, my lord. I have never seen such anger in a girl.” (AGOT)

“Give me Cersei Lannister, Lord Karstark, and you would see how gentle a woman can be,” Catelyn replied. (AGOT)

the most important (and underrated) similarity between them is the devotion they show to their family. they are two of the most family orientated characters in this series. cat’s words are family, duty, honor and arya’s personal motto is the pack survives. this is what motivates them: the desire to get their family back. and they will do just about anything to accomplish that goal. they value this above all else, including vengeance. but when their families are completely gone they will come for those responsible. 

I am a creature of grief and dust and bitter longings. There is an empty place within me where my heart was once. (ACOK)

It was a hollow place, an emptiness where her heart had been, where her brothers had lived, and her parents. (ASOS)

on a narrative level they are so deeply intertwined that i cannot believe its a coincidence. they share a strong water motif. arya spends a majority of her time in the riverlands which is not only catelyn homeland but its her current location too. arya fights so hard to reach riverrun, and her mother and robb. without knowing the other is fighting just as hard to find them. but the red wedding is where it all comes crashing down. inside the castle, cat has to watch as her last son is betrayed and murdered before she is killed by the freys. outside, arya finds herself in the middle of the slaughter too. she runs for the castle, to save her mother, but sandor clegane knocks her unconscience. this tragedy ends with arya and catelyn stark blacking out and when they awaken they are changed. 

I’m not his daughter, Arya might have shouted, if she hadn’t felt so tired. She was no one’s daughter now. She was no one.

“She don’t speak,” said the big man in the yellow cloak. “You bloody bastards cut her throat too deep for that. But she remembers.” (ASOS)

arya is stricken with grief. her last hope to return home and be reunited with her family was destroyed. arya feels as if she is no one. her identity was built upon her pack and without them she is more lost then ever. catelyn stark never truly wakes up. arya and her wolf pulled the three day old corpse out of the river and beric dondarrion gave it the kiss of life, in a possible attempt to fulfill his oath to arya. lady stoneheart’s existence is a direct result of arya’s will. 

The white thing lay facedown in the mud, her dead flesh wrinkled and pale, cold blood trickling from her throat. Rise, she thought. Rise and eat and run with us. (ASOS)

“The Freys slashed her throat from ear to ear. When we found her by the river she was three days dead. Harwin begged me to give her the kiss of life, but it had been too long. I would not do it, so Lord Beric put his lips to hers instead, and the flame of life passed from him to her. And … she rose. May the Lord of Light protect us. She rose.” (AFFC)

but she is not the woman she once was. she is a creature driven by nothing but revenge. she has no objectivity or remorse or sympathy. all she wants is to see hanged men. arya is also driven by revenge. its all she has left. this and the fact she has nowhere else to go brings her across the narrow sea to the house of black and white. there she begins to train in assassination and espionage. one of her responsibilities is caring for the dead. its a hard, bloody thing she’s doing. but she has nowhere else to turn. she’s lost and afraid and grieving. she takes on catelyn’s name as one of her aliases and mercy is also a nod to stoneheart who is known as mother merciless. arya is capable of violence and ruthlessness just like her mother’s revenant but she still has a heart. it is not gone or made of stone or even as hard as she likes to think. its still hurting and loving. 

Needle was Robb and Bran and Rickon, her mother and her father, even Sansa. Needle was Winterfell’s grey walls, and the laughter of its people. Needle was the summer snows, Old Nan’s stories, the heart tree with its red leaves and scary face, the warm earthy smell of the glass gardens, the sound of the north wind rattling the shutters of her room. Needle was Jon Snow’s smile. He used to mess my hair and call me “little sister,” she remembered, and suddenly there were tears in her eyes. (AFFC)

lady catelyn stark is dead but arya is still alive. arya does not need to go down this road that lies before her with the faceless men. or even one outside of them where she pursues those on her list. she still has a life and a future and those who will love her. all she needs is to find that path again. and i think lady stoneheart will help her realize that. i very much believe they will cross paths. when they do it will be both a climax and a closure. arya will finally understand how much her mother loved her. many of her self doubts and fears about where she belongs will be conquered. she will finally be able to save her mother too. thats what she wanted more than her own life. the arya who walks away from this will be stronger and more confident. and lady stoneheart will finally be given her own mercy. she is a soul in torment but her daughter will be the one to give her peace. i can think of no better ending to this storyline. its a culmination of the themes in their both arcs coming together in one heartbreaking and cathartic event. 

[TUTORIAL] Graphic Tutorial #20

hey everyone, it’s been a long while since i last made a post on this blog. i’ve been super busy with school and life in general. but i had some free time on my hands today and thought i share this little minimalistic/aesthetic graphic with you all.

has anyone seen the recent netflix series adaptation of A Series Of Unfortunate Events yet? I am completely obsessed and super happy that someone has finally brought the books justice! i started reading this series back in middle school and i’m a sucker for a good mystery and this series is my all time favorite, second to Harry Potter of course! HAHA! 

but let’s go ahead and get right into the tutorial, continue reading!!!! 

Keep reading

Changed back to my previous url -> nanazumi

I just realized while scrolling through my archive that it’s been more than four years since I’ve consistently made graphics. I must admit that the community on Tumblr is not the same anymore and the bloggers that used to be active are now all strangers. I find it nostalgic and upsetting at the same time that the world around me has changed so rapidly but yet I must grow with it. I’m now finished with my first year of university and I am no longer that girl who used to hide in her room to watch anime and make graphics as a form of retreat. But as I struggle to discover my passions and interests these days, I can’t help but return to this community in hopes of re-discovering what used to attract me here. This is the place where I first found the courage to express myself freely and create content that I genuinely liked. It’s funny because as a media communications major, I am now constantly competing with others in the field of content creation. But at the same time, it’s stressful because it’s never content that I enjoy creating. That’s why I hope to set my path straight this summer. Hopefully, I can retrieve all my graphics resources folders and familiarize myself with old skills that I seem to have forgotten. Because it is not just skills that I seem to have abandoned, but also my interests and compassion. At the very least, I want to do something for myself at last.

No idea who might read this but more than anything, I think this will serve as a grave reminder for myself to keep trying. 

*peeks around corner; dusts off blog*

Sooooo, I know it’s been a while. I’m not going to lie but work has been taking all of my energy. I’m so exhausted by the time I get home that I don’t want to do anything. Including working on drafts or the blog itself xC

I’m going to try and be as active as I once was, but it probably won’t be as much especially since I used too much data last month because work doesn’t have Wifi for whatever reason.

For today, I will be reposting all the graphics plus some new ones @helloiamtheworst made recently and sent to me. I do still have some drafts to deal with, but I’m thinking about reopening the inbox.

I also want to thank everyone for getting the blog up to 450 followers! I’m sorry for being so inactive, but I’ll try to fix that from now.

Thanks and keep a lookout for the graphics!


I dont think I spoke about this chara before. Its been a while since I posted OC content.

This is a dump of drawings I made of Renaud, 19 years old graphic designer. likes of outrun electro, nu disco, hypnagogic pop, vaporwave and retro-futurism music. old movies specially 80’s cheese, splatter and slasher cinema. Pastel/pale things. Has a female Siamese cat named Sucre. From a story I am planing to make into a oneshot BL comic.

Lol he really is tumblr famous, Runs a pastel blog where he uploads sensual pics of himself.. you know.. the type…


ahh so guys its been a while since i made one of these but i hit 9k over my spring break last week and this blog just turned a year old the other day so i just had to do something to thank you guys for sticking around with me for so long!! thank you so much ive had so much fun being a part of this fandom. interacting with all of you has been so great and i am really looking forward to keeping this up <3

Follow Forever

Gonna go ahead and do my 2k15 end of the year thing, my shitty graphic n’ all, lol.  This has been my most vibrant year on my Tumblr since I’ve had it. I’ve made a lot of new friends, and bonded with the ones I’ve known for a while, all the more. Some of these blogs are mutuals, some are not, but that doesn’t mean I love them any less.


@rogueleader1987 (Noel Fisher, Cameron Monaghan fan, shades Shameless) There’s so much to say about this girl. We’ve recently become close and I just adore the shit outta her. Whether it’s shading Shameless, or carrying out the thirst, she’s the best. I recommend very highly that you follow this one.

@macabredealings (best friend, kick ass RP blog) Need I say more? Okay, I will. If you’re looking to have a kick ass time RP’ing, or just want a new friend then this woman is the one to go to. She loves all things SPN, BtVS, and TWD.

@jollymickeymilkovich (Noel and Cam fan ; hates Shameless) This girl is one of my faves, one I’ve become close with recently. She’s so entertaining. And she’ll liven up your dash if you give her a follow. She loves Buffy too. You can’t go wrong following this one.

@sleepyfaceandsnark (hates Shameless, writes the best fluffy fanfiction, thirsts on Cam and Noel) I adore Amanda so much! I always smile seeing her on my dash, whether it’s thirsting, ranting, or just posting adorable fluff, she brightens my day, and she’ll brighten yours too if you follow her.

@rigormorton32  / @gorleska (queen of smut, need I say more?) I’ve become close with fellow Christin in the past month. She’s one of the best writer’s I’ve ever had the privilege of working with and reading. You’re not following her? You must ASAP.

@hazelevers & @jamesrnarch (Evan blogs, AHS fans) Two of my favorite badasses. They love Evan Peters as much as I do. They appreciate the thirst, and their liveblogging gives me life. If you’re not follow them GET ON IT!

@anothergallavichlove  (shades Shameless, thirsts over Ian and Mickey) She’s one of my favorite writers and people to talk to. Like, if you’re not following her then SHAME on you!

@bellafarella (thirsts after Noel, and maybe Cam ;)) She’s one of my faves, she writes the best fluff, and all around brightens my dash. Please do follow her!

@haydnmcclaine (adores Evan Peters and AHS) If you love Evan or AHS, then she’s one of my top recommendations. She gets right to the point, she makes me smile and laugh. I love seeing her on my dash just doing her thing. Shading, making gifs, updating on Evan. If you’re not following her then get your basic ass on it!

@mrsemmyrossum  (shades Shameless & thirsts over Emmy Rossum) Belle is one of my top faves. She’s not afraid to say what she feels. She’ll keep you entertained and make you smile if you follow her, I guarantee that. Unless you’re Sheila C-bag.

When I first decided to get into indie rping, I never expected to meet so many awesome new people, or at least not within the space of 2 or 3 months. I was so happy when I hit 200 and I can only hope I carry on meeting more of you.


vonglitz-writes in such a short time, our friendship has grown into something great. We have two perfect ships, and not only that, but you’re so helpful when it comes to themes and graphics. You helped me with Nate’s Bristol theme, and made the 8 graphics in my sidebar. You’re amazing and kind and perfect and ilysm.

twinrps I could go on about our friendship for a while but i’ll try to get it short for the sake of dash clogging. You’re one of the first people I met when rping over a year ago, and your friedship means more to me each day (even though it’s been a while since we’ve spoken now). We’ve had tons of amazing ships from JJate, Noli and Bani, to Olismine, Nalfie and Nouis. When it comes to ships, even platonic ones, we always have amazing chemistry and that’s part of why it’s such a pleasure and honour to write with you. Even when I was awful, you still put up with me and stuck by myside no mater how much of an asshole I was and i’m so, so, soooo thankful to have met you. I love you more than words can express. ❤

tatteredhearts-twistedminds Jace Face, Perfect Penguin, you have been a big influence in my life. You’ve taught me a lot (especially the meanings on gender/sexuality terms that confused me before). You’re always going to have a place in my heart, and continue to be the amazing and lovely person that you are. Don’t ever change because you are perfect.

jasperhelps My dear Jaspy and my ‘Dad’. You’ve made me laugh to the point of tears, and you’ve had my feels scattered like autumn leaves with swet Nemo and Nate. I miss rping with you, but i’m glad I still get to talk to you and just generall have you in my life but you are amazing in every way. PS: I hope you still have that box!

likeaphoenixrps I don’t think we’ve ever had a conversation that didn’t leave me laughing my ass off at my ocmputer, like ever. Our friendship is basically built on insults and ;_; faces and it’s great, tbh. Both of our ships are basically tragic, Olibastian mainly but Blenry too. Sometimes I think you’re the Indian lesbian version of me and I love ranting about shit that pisses us off because no one understands it like you. Keep being tragic. 👌

evvyanderson At first, in twins, I found you really intimidating. I loved seeing Everett on the dash but OOC, I was scared to talk to you because I thought you were incredible. And then Neverett happened and we talked, and I discovered how much of a sweet and lovely person you really are. Neverett still breaks my heart pretty much whenever they interact but I wouldn’t have them any other way because both Neverett and you are amazing.

sebastiansmytherps Our friendship has had a lot of ups and downs in the time we’ve known each other. I’ve loved and lost you, but now you’re back in my life and you shouldn’t ever forget, i’ll always be here if you need me, any time; i’ll be here to remind you how amazing you are. Olibastian always prevails. 👐
