The Fox and The Maiden Fair: Revelations and Fears

when i think of hugh jackman being wolverine for 17 years. it just reminds me that at the same time, halle berry was storm and anna paquin was rogue. those are 17 years we could of had a female driven superhero film and marvel did not do it. they didn’t even try. it’s 2017 and marvel’s had 17 years to give us better representation and they’ve done nothing 

She got me praying all hours of the night, say she want my heart, She pulling me to the river, drawing me with her siren's call, Done gave her my heart but now she wants my soul, Well I already sold it to the man in red, "Fell in love with your charm," but its a curse; cos am dead, Girl you're not who you say, bad girl they say you are Innocence isn't where am at, wear your crucifix bae Don't make me out all serious bonnie, slave to this bad religion, Unrequited love, praying at my shrine, cos I don't have a heart Like a dead man walking, I lay at your side, Make sure you're alright in my world, atleast that for you girl,

I gave her my heart but she wanted my soul

Emer was impressed, when they passed through one of the four gates of the fortress she saw lots of houses with oval sides, many poles at the sides, supporting the walls and the roof. It seemed the wood used was oak.

With the help of some men, Gunnar took Bragi with him to lead the injured man to be tended by a healer.

Some of the inhabitants were outside to watch her. They were curious about the princess that would be their queen. She could see some of them were cautious. A small girl ran from her mother and stopped in front of Emer. The princess smiled at her. The girl saw this as a sign to investigate further. She took Emer’s hand on her own and was dazzled by the softness of her skin. Emer found the girl fascinating as well, with grey and curious eyes. The girl’s mother didn’t know what to do. She was fearing being offensive and wake up Ivar’s wrath.

Sigvard approached and whispered to Emer. “Ivar is out there, watching us.”

Emer blushed, after almost a year, she was seeing that man. Not only this, she was marrying him. She looked in Ivar’s direction. A little smile playing about his mouth, but suddenly the smile disappeared and he was looking angry. The girl has gone with her mother and Emer started walking to Ivar, flanked by the brothers, Sigvard and Gunnar.

Emer didn’t know how to greet him. Should she bow?

She had not to think much about it. Ivar looked at her from head to toe.

He asked Sigvard. “Did her father checked the mundr?”

Sigvard nodded negatively. Emer was ashamed. They were discussing about the payment.

Ivar’s face was showing a kind of emotion Emer couldn’t name. Was he angry? Frustrated?

He smiled in mockery and turned around, walking away. Emer was embarrassed. She knew her appearance was not the most charming after such a tough travel. The woman didn’t know if she should follow him. Sigvard walked past Emer, giving her a reassuring look and nodding his head for her to follow inside.

Once inside, Emer saw that Ivar was sitting, leaning forward and looking at her in amusement. It was like he was enjoying her confusion. She was angry that after such a long journey he had not spoken a word yet. All she wanted was to have a bath and eat something fresh. Not the old bread from when they were on the road.

He was tilting his head to the side, as if he was studying Emer, while the woman was looking at him fiercely. At last, he nodded saying. “I imagine you are tired of the travel and wish for a bath and food. Is that true?”

Black Owned Business Review

“Golden Glow” Shimmering Oatmeal Body Scrub by The Delicate Fox. Purchased in person for $18 (thedelicatefox.com)

I ordered a clay mask from them because I wanted to be able to accurately review their shipping and packaging, etc. However they offer local pickup and I also live in Phoenix so I decided to pick this item up in person. The owner was really nice and professional. And the product was still packaged nicely. THIS PRODUCT IS SO PRETTY. Like shimmering body scrub, I thought this was so unique. But the pigment is so nice. I have dark skin and it’s just really really nice. Also it can be used outside of the shower so I can use it any time of day. It last a pretty long time and there’s a good amount of product. It made my skin really soft and it felt really moisturized. It also smells really good. This would be good for Halloween as like Wonder Woman or a goddess or when you want to outshine everyone even in the winter

“You said ‘Broch Tuarach’ means ‘North Facing Tower.’”
“Well, it’s round. It doesn’t have a face.”
door faces north.”
“Ha. Frasers. I’m beginning to feel like– Like I– I actually belong here.”
“I knew you belonged here, with me, almost since the first moment I laid eyes on ye. That’s one of the reasons I agreed to marry you.”
~ Lallybroch [1x12]

“We returned to heal in the peace of the Scottish Highlands… the daily routines of Lallybroch worked like a tonic on our battered souls.”
~ The Fox’s Lair [2x08]

“He took me to his own home – Lallybroch, it was called. A beautiful place.” I shut my eyes again to get away from the look on Brianna’s face, and deliberately summoned the image of the estate of Broch Tuarach – Lallybroch, to the people who lived there. A beautiful Highland farm, with woods and streams; even a bit of fertile ground – rare for the Highlands. A lovely, peaceful place sealed within the high hills above a mountain pass that kept it remote from the recurrent strife that troubled the Highlands.
~ Dragonfly in Amber

I had never actually had a home. Orphaned at five, I had lived the life of a academic vagabond with my uncle Lamb for the next thirteen years…
It was strange, then, and rather wonderful, to wake up in the upper bedroom at Lallybroch, next to Jamie, and realize, as I watched the dawn touch his sleeping face, that he had been born in this bed. All the sounds of the house, from the creak of the back stair under an early-rising maid’s foot, to the drumming rain on the roofslates, were sounds he had heard a thousand times before; heard so often, he didn’t hear them anymore. I did.

~ Dragonfly in Amber

“On your feet, soldier. Take me  h o m e  t o  L a l l y b r o c h .”
~ The Devil’s Mark [1x11]

Sometimes in late summer I won’t touch anything, not
the flowers, not the blackberries
brimming in the thickets; I won’t drink
from the pond; I won’t name the birds or the trees;
I won’t whisper my own name.

One morning
the fox came down the hill, glittering and confident,
and didn’t see me—and I thought:

so this is the world.
I’m not in it.
It is beautiful.
—  Mary Oliver, October (excerpt)

Paper Fox Army

This tutorial will show you how to make an origami paper fox. Paper folding is something I’ve always liked to do, and I thought I’d post a tutorial on how to make one of my favorite creatures. You, too, will soon be making your own paper fox army once you practice making them (p.s. they will take practice!). 

You need two sheets of square paper to complete one fox. Take note of the picture in the next step to find out what the paper should look like after folding that particular step. Most of these folds are what you would consider a “valley fold” though a few are a combination of mountain and valley, hopefully following the instructions and seeing the pictures will help give you an idea of what direction to fold.

 …and now… on with the tutorial!

For a little history, this tutorial was made in 2008 and was actually constructed so it could be photocopied. The text was typed, printed, cut and pasted next to the illustrations.
