not designed to quit

anonymous asked:

All your books have the most beautiful covers!! Does the publisher decide them or do have some sway over choosing them?

Authors have basically zero choice in their book design, for which I’m quite grateful, because my artistic abilities are limited to writing books, not making them!

I requested something “tree-ish and DNA-y” for VICTORIANS, and I’m super-thrilled with what I got! Most of my covers just show up. I’ve been incredibly lucky so far, because they’ve all been AMAZING.

Quite fond of this design. Still, there’s a lot I could tweak about it.

Considered making it a 0/0 on the backside, having it be a Lizard without the Innistradi horror flavour, and having it grow faster but be more expensive.

As it stands, I think it’s quite a powerful card. The most basic use is to just play it turn 1 and flip it as a 2/2 the next turn, basically treating it as a Diregraf Ghoul, but it has a lot of potential beyond that. I gave it a push because I think it’s the kind of beatstick that appeals to Spike-y players.

Why “Beauty and the Beast” was actually pretty great:
  • the music is not good, it’s great
  • production design, costumes (even the freaking yellow dress which is actually quite gorgeous on camera), everything is truly beautiful and quite breathtaking at moments
  • the acting was surprisingly wonderful. it’s disney, it’ll be cheesy at moments—but for the most part, it was terrific
  • this is not a childish adaptation
  • when it gets dark, it gets DARK. 
  • g a s t o n
  • new songs! new character development! 
  • the cgi is not even that bad. in fact, there are moments when it’s pretty seamless. the practical sets and effects compensated for it, in my mind.
  • and when it’s wonky? you won’t care because you’ll be too busy smiling
  • there is some hilarious shit in this movie
  • the beast’s expressions are actually amazing; you can really see the actor moving beneath them 
  • T H E    M U S I C
  • you get to see little kids and adults all freaking out the whole time
  • SIR IAN MCKELLEN PLAYS A CLOCK AND IS AWESOME AT IT
  • emma watson will make your heart stop she is so beautiful
  • sneaky political/ethical gestures that made me cheer
  • this movie is so pure and we need that right now
  • and by the end? i just started laughing and crying—in excess joy. i couldn’t believe it. i’ve never been moved by a movie like that in my life.
  • it won’t please everybody but if you loved the original and if you are prepared to attempt to enjoy it for what it is—a colorful, painterly, vibrant adaptation of a beloved story—then go watch it.

Some Gochi for my followers, love you guys! Thanks for being there, enjoying my fanart and my blog :)

Part 1 (Yuuri’s Eros, Viktor’s SbMS, Yurio’s Agape and Yuuri’s YOI)

I’m. Dead. Completely dead. God dammit, if I thought the others were hard, well, these were HELL. Chris’s costume was the hardest so far (It’s name should be INFERNO. Not Guang-Hong’s), but omg it really does SHINE in the game I love how it turned out!!! Phichit’s was hard as well and I’m still not 100% happy with it but it looks cute in game too so  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Probably gonna do more since I FELL TOO HARD IN YOI’S HELL!! So if you have one specific costume you want to see, hit me with an ask

Guess who watched the new X-men and is now officially Nightsilver trash?~
