Happy Hump Day!

The month is almost over, but there are still a lot of great fic recs on the way! So take a moment to stop, rest, and indulge in a little feel-good fic!

1. And we’ll never be lonely anymore by PoorWendy aka @guiltypuknowme

Their closest friends are getting married, and Eames has booked a room in Boston for the grand event. Sharing a room with your best friend is nothing new; It will be just like old times, and maybe if Arthur keeps telling himself that, he’ll start to believe it.

2. Mutual Aid by LaSordide

Love in the squats that grow from the ashes of Old Winnipeg. (And my sincere apologies to the venerable Ursula K. LeGuin.)

3. Lines that we’ll draw by VIII_XIII

And you know, there’s something really liberating about putting your thoughts down and sending them out and not being able to take them back. I think you’re probably reading this and thinking that I’m significantly weirder deep down inside than you’d thought, and that’s all right because it’s the truth. But maybe you don’t care and you’ve already thrown this away and you’ll toss any other ones I send out with the junk mail, unopened. And that’d be okay too. It’s not the reading that counts; it’s the writing.

There are two boxes full of letters in Eames’s desk drawer. The ones he receives from Arthur, and the ones he wishes he could send in reply.

4. Cupcaking by @dasyatidae

Arthur’s NaNoWriMo novel is driving him crazy, and the cupcakes he baked for the first Queer Straight Alliance meeting of the year have come out all wonky. Can Eames come beta one?

5. Secrets in the Dark by @teacuphuman09

When their school trip is waylaid by a blizzard, Arthur and Eames end up sharing a room.

Remember those medieval fantasy-inspired NHL sigils I made last April??? 

Well, I’ve finally made a new set, featuring some of the NHL teams of the past!! 

From left to right we have: the Atlanta Thrashers, California Golden Seals, Colorado Rockies, Hartford Whalers, Kansas City Scouts, Minnesota North Stars, Quebec Nordiques, and the old Winnipeg Jets. 

A few of these were a bit challenging, especially the Winnipeg one! I wanted to figure out something to represent the airplane jet streams, so I decided on arrows, with the roundel of the Royal Canadian Air Force. 

I’m really happy with this set! If you wish to buy a printed version, They are available in my Etsy Shop. 

You can also order individual banners of select current teams now, too!
