FROM THE DARKNESS WE RISE TRAILER
(JACK FROST X PITCH BLACK)

Okay, let’s get the niceties out of the way, nyes? I own sweet fuck all from this video. None of the gifs are mine, none of the clips are mine, the music is not mine, the story is not mine, the authoress is not mine (pity that…). Okay you get it. I don’t claim ownership over any of this. I simply whacked it together because I was feeling shit today (still feel like I’ve been run over by several trains…)and I felt I should contribute to the awesomeness that is ‘The Shadows and Light series’ and earn my spot in Not_Poignant’s well-deserved fanbase.

I tried to gather as many relevant clips as I could. Obviously with so many created characters, one can’t do much in the way of describing the plot through motion alone and I do so hate to write subtitles, because I’m weird.

If you have not read the fictions, I lovingly place the link below for my promoting pleasure, and your viewing…

Read it here(Go read it darlings, it you have not already.)

“Twenty two years have passed since the defeat of Pitch, and Jack lives alone, touch-starved, with only the company of a solitary Nightmare. One evening the Man in the Moon sets him on a path that will lead him to unexpected relationships, draw the attention of the Guardians to a new coalition of villains, and challenge Jack’s every notion of what it is to be good, evil, and what it is to live in the shadows.”
-Pia (Not_Poignant)

I’m gonna go die now…quietly…

Payment to not_poignant for their amazing writing. I can’t give you my soul, so this was the next best thing.

I tried to get augus’ waterweed down, you guys know how I am about plants. Also, Gwyn’s hair? My struggle. I love Augus, but Gwyn?? I’ll have to try again. Please note, these are sketches. I’m hoping to draw them more in the future, heaven knows I reread 600,000 words this weekend, I’m feeling obessed.

Fanfics I 100% recommend!

I was thinking a lot about some of these lately, so I thought I would share a list of some of my favorite fanfics! Some of these I honestly think I like more than some of my favorite books. 

My top favorite fanfics are: 

1 - Oblivion by southspinner. This fic has one of the most beautiful styles I have ever seen. It is a JeanMarco fic based off The Fault in Our Stars. I cannot put into words how much I love this fic. 

2 - Future Earth, Future Sky by Inky. My favorite Free! fic of all time. It is a SouMako fic that means a lot more to me than just the amazing story. This fic actually helped me a lot in understanding my own anxiety problems and it has helped a lot of other readers as well. That is just amazing to me.

3 - Shadows and Light by not_poignant. Not_poigant does an amazing job with characterization and taking Jack Frost on a completely transforming journey about finding yourself. I love it and even though I’m less into RoTG now, I’ll still recommend this fic to anyone!

Some other really great fics! 

Free!

Augus let go of Gwyn’s tongue and straddled him properly, opening the bathrobe as he did so. He settled down low on Gwyn’s waist, his own bathrobe a dark, vivid sap green, embroidered with ferns. Gwyn’s was white and fluffy, made out of towelling, looked ridiculous. Augus managed to look fashionable even when he was half-naked.

I NEED A PORTRAIT OF THIS SOOOOOO BAD

youtube

“Would you leave me,

if I told you what I’d done.

And would you leave me,

If I told you what I’ve become.”


So I was rereading ISWF today and listening to my ipod when No Light, No Light by Florence + The Machine popped up. I swear this song was made for Jack and Pitch. It hit all the feels for the story like whoa. Seriously, reread some of the newer chapters and listen to this song, it makes everything ten times more feel-y!

I have done a horrible thing...

   I am a shipper, and when I ship it can get very very bad. As in to the point that I’m embarrassed about myself deep in the back of my mind. My newest obsession is RotG. When I first watched the movie, I was sure that I shipped Rainbow Snow cone (Jack and Tooth. I mean seriously, when they hugged at the end it was just so damn cute!) but after reading From The Darkness We Rise by not_poignant I am addicted to BlackIce (Jack and Pitch…. don’t judge me, okay? I like when ships have fun names =P). So much that I haven’t even TRIED reading JakcXTooth. My favorite thing about FtDwR is the back story. I love that the back story is mostly correct according to the books. All of it is just so wonderfully interesting and well written. However, this was only the start.

  I went to Sakura con this weekend and I didn’t have very much fun. The hotel quoted us the wrong price, they didn’t have internet (without paying money to become a “member”), and I ended up being sick. The only good thing however, is that I got to see the BlackIce ship sail before my eyes via cosplay. This made the whole weekend worth it. I fangasumed so hard that I blacked out for like 15 seconds. I came to face down on the pavement screaming and they were gone. This is very bad. I ship this way too hard. It’s ZADR and Synlet all over again and I am scared. My friend managed to get me a picture (which I will be sharing in this post). Unfortunately we didn’t get a picture of when they were actually kissing because the Pitch’s makeup started to rub off so they pulled apart really quick. Oh well, I’m just glad that they were nice enough (and shipped this with me!!!) to indulge me with the picture. Anyways, time to share this beautiful thing =)

Sorry that this post is weird. I’m not very good with words and it’s been a long day.

Attention!

Hi guys! I would just like to take a moment to recommend one of the best fanfictions I have had the pleasure of reading in my life. It’s called “From the Darkness We Rise” and it’s a Rise of the Guardians fanfic by the amazing Not_Poignant (http://not-poignant.tumblr.com)

http://archiveofourown.org/works/642848/chapters/1166528

It’s a beautiful, intricate story with a sequel that somehow manages to one-up itself!  

Bonus:  This wonderful human composed a few incredible songs to listen to while reading!!  https://soundcloud.com/sisyphus-rising/frost-ballad

I have a mighty need for Gwyn and Augus fuff. So here we are.

Basically for the day when these two doofs can do the “relationship” part of relationship. Also for the quote from Augus about Gwyn’s hair, “The color of dawn sun”.

So here we go. Genderbent, Augus just woke up from a nightmare and Gwyn’s brought her back. And the sun rises. Because cheese is good for the soul.

Characters are Gwyn ap Nudd and Augus Each Usige from not_poignant’s fabulous original stories.

Every time you think your writing sucks, or its inadequate and you don’t have confidence in your writing abilities, just remember that this was published. Some editor out there thought this was perfectly acceptable material to publish. Now laugh, cry, and enjoy, but remember to feel good about yourself.

True Story Tho

When I first read the Shadows and Light verse, the part where the Nightmare King tells Jack ‘I’m not going anywhere’ I put my phone down, got up, walked away, walked back, sat down, and picked my phone back up all whilst crying 'Holy shit, holy shiiiiit, holy shit’.

I’m still in such awe of that epic burn I just remembered it and needed to make a post about it.
