mens knot

2

Another day, another kick of party for a festival I deeply love and support.

Corset is from Timeless Trends,
Tie knot is a Trinity Knot,
And a Mr. Ghosts’s Significantly Fancy Undead Appreciation Pin makes a return, which you can get from the ever lovely Evil Supply Co. Seriously. Check them out. They have a wonderful array of badges, pins, stickers and stationary.

False Prophets

Just because Stan’s injured and the brothers are trying to sail to port doesn’t mean they can avoid anomalies altogether.

Set between Chapters 12 and 13 of Fisherman’s Knot.

Fluffstravaganza commission for @dana-willowfeather, who asked for Stan saving the day with his cunning and trickery! It turned out to be more of a Stan/Nuala teamup, but I hope you enjoy it!


It was supposed to be a simple matter of getting directions.

Of course, Ford chided himself, nothing he did could ever be simple. There must be some unwritten law of the universe, nay, multiverse, against Stanford Pines ever getting any kind of break. All he’d wanted to do was make sure they were on the fastest route to Boston, out of the path of any storms or ice shoals. It was a simple enough request.

And yes, he could have just thrown the King Cod back into the ocean instead of taking it up on its offer to help them in exchange for its life, but they’d used prophetic fish to navigate before and it had turned out fine! He should have had no problem answering its riddles! And—all right, really he should just stop making excuses and see if there was anything useful he could do before he lost consciousness and was dropped into the maw of a horrific sea monster. Maws? There might have been more than one of them. He hadn’t been able to get a good look before his vision started going spotty.

<br />I have enlarged the central area of the previous posted photograph for a better view of the persons.

On the complete picture, a pillar with an inscription can be made out in the background. It reads 田舎 志るこ 柳川 and may point out to a restaurant. 志るこ is a sweetened red bean soup and 柳川 is probably the family name or the name of this place. (Thanks to Hiroshi for translation!).

The men still wear top knots 丁髷 (chonmage) so this photograph has probably been taken pre 1900.
