HEY IT’S A (really late) VALENTINE’S DAY SEQUEL TO THIS! You should really look at that to understand what’s going on, but as a quick backstory to this, Adrien found out the scarf he thought his dad gave him was from Marinette, it upset him too much so he gave it back to her.

And then I hated that it was just angst so I made this to make up for it? What started as a one page thing turned into a too-many-pages thing. Hence being like… 2 weeks later for V-day. Oh well! Enjoy!

Also, as for what Marinette actually got Adrien…

Goodnight, Captain
(AKA vague prequel to this)

Where freshly minted Captain Kirk reads up on stuff even when he’s not on shift and nods off in random conference rooms on the Enterprise. Certain first officers who don’t require as much sleep take care of things.

Hey fiber artist

Knit a stitch, crochet a row, make just a little progress on your current project. If you don’t have a project find a pattern, even if it’s just to stare at it in longing. Just a little progress every day keeps your project from falling into dust and disinterest. 

Yes Lance. Knit him a sweater. Knit them ALL sweaters.

Knit them… Ugly Christmas sweaters.

Looking young in a yarn shop.

I wanted to see if anyone else has this problem. I am 24 but look much younger like I am in mid to late high school. When I go into many nice yarn shops they snub me, talk down to me, and assume I am not gonna drop bank on some nice ass yarn. I am always very polite and friendly. Mind this isn’t all yarn shops but many of them. I had a really bad experience with this one yarn shop in Fredrick MD yesterday and I am still miffed about how they treated me. I just want to know if anyone else experiences this?
