otp: king of hearts


I’ve been sitting on these since winter, although I’m not sure exactly why.  I still think about doing a playing card deck someday and started working up some face card designs when I had a little time off over the holidays.  I couldn’t settle on a standardized backdrop, so I began tailoring them to each character instead.

If I were to do a Kickstarter campaign for something like this sometime, would anyone be interested, or not so much?

Happy Valentines Day!!! 
Hope everyone is having a nice day with their King or Queen of Hearts today :)

King of Heart - Hiccup & Toothless

Hearts - Emotions - Relationships - Love  

By nature, these people are the most desirable people on earth and the most worthy of love. They will respond to any true call for help from any quarter - and you can forget to thank them if you choose; it will make no difference to them.

The front they present to the world is kindly, friendly and magnetic. They give an impression not so much of power but of peace, protection and “safe harbor”. Within themselves, however, they know they have the full power of love, a power invincible!

Sometimes, we find the Kings of Heart are quarrelsome and overbearing. They are met with constant disappointment in others, and are frequently deceived or betrayed.

When we meet a King of Hearts on their own terms and tune into their love and kindness, they never bring us anything but joy. They are the heart and center of family life, and harmonizer of friends.

Queen of Heart - Astrid & Stormfly

Hearts - Emotions - Relationships - Love

This is the Card of beauty, magnetism, affection and idealism. The women Queen of Hearts represent the much-loved mother, the sweetheart, the indispensable sister, the adored daughter. 

The Queen of Heart natives are talented in some artistic line, even if it’s just in their appreciation of beauty or art. They are often intense and dramatic, and can be very domineering in the family. They are also capable of deep devotion and loyalty. There is a strong streak of religion in all Queen of Hearts and they are often influenced by strong minded women, religious or spiritually inclined. Even when we should, we don’t like to find fault with the Queen of Heart; they are too loving and desirable!Prints for Sale on ybellasketch.etsy.com/

some thoughts on 409 bellamy

Consent vs free will is a huge theme on this show. It’s one that I don’t see talked about very often. 

This season has dipped a little into faith and religion more than it has in the past, rather than just referencing it like they have in the past, they have been saying things like “hope for a forgiving God” and mentioning heaven and hell. 

Free will is a huge thing in the Christian faith. It’s a complicated thing. Which is why I’m so interested that when previewing this episode, JR said that “Bellamy will continue his crisis of faith” and that manifested in him being the champion of free will. 

“Whatever the hell we want” has been deconstructed for the past four seasons. The delinquents have never really had any free will since we have seen them on our screen. They were sent to the ground, they were captured by mount weather, they were in the City of Light and pulled out. It didn’t matter what any of them wanted in those situations. 

Bellamy’s been their leader, their friend, and father figure. It was so cool to watch him recognize that despite the ugliness of wanting to stay behind to die, that last piece of agency for his friends brings us to back to “whatever the hell we want” and also, “maybe life is more than just surviving.” 

The world is ending in 6 days. And Bellamy is asking himself what he wants. What his friends want. Not what they need. Not what they need to do to survive. If Bellamy finds hope in the bunker, he finds hope in the bunker. But not everyone does, and he came to understand that. 

Compare this with Science Island and all the horrible choices that have been made. Is it worth losing your humanity in order to live? Is it worth losing your free will, followed by your hope and your faith? 

Bellamy’s arc is subtle but it’s been there the whole season. He and Raven are what I’m more excited for in these final episodes.
