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.
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 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.
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)
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.
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.
This is my crappy tribute to not_poignant as an amazing writer.
This is Pia’s character, Gwyn Ap Nudd from Game Theory and the FTDWR and ISWF series.
This has been my headcannon for several chapters now in Game Theory. I have a nasty, sad headcannon that somewhere in his childhood his poisonous family killed/ destroyed something he loved and/or made him do the deed and that was how this was born. Very quickly done but I’ve been feeling *GWYNISMYBABYANDNEEDSHUGS* feels for ages now.
Thank you Pia! You’re a wonderful writer and I wish you the best!
