Summary: When an old friend in need reaches out to Katniss, she returns to the small town she swore she’d never set foot in again. Help Madge and then leave, she decides. But a murder investigation and one sheriff with stupid blue eyes and dimples all conspire to keep her where she thought she’d never want to be.
WARNINGS:RATED E for mentions of domestic abuse, character death, mild language to include racial slurs, an obscene love affair with coffee, and explicit sexual content.
This piece was lovingly crafted for my dear friend and beta, @peetabreadgirl, to celebrate her birthday. It’s based on a book I recently read and immediately had to Everlark because…well you’ll see. The book is Jed Had to Die by Tara Sevic. I am neither Tara Sevic nor Suzanne Collins and thus technically do not own the basic storyline or the characters. This is pure fun. Also, it’s multi-chapter, but they will be significantly shorter than my chapters usually are. Enjoy! Love you, PBJ! <3
There are few things a woman wouldn’t do for her one true love in this life. Maim, murder, wreck, and ruin. Because we all know that your one true love is reserved for that singular soul who inspires your heart and then protects it. Strong, dependable, forgiving, amazing. These are the qualities that garner affection. Especially at times when your love reliably comes through to rescue you from a horrible day. Enter Theo.
I’m hoping to make a few variations of this in the future (when Uni dies down and I have the time) to try and improve on the design. And also work out the best possible layout for inside the lock box to make fixtures to keep everything in place while in transit.
There was a different feeling in his bones between when he sailed The Dragonfly and when he ordered the anchor of the newly restored Queen’s Gambit to be drawn up, setting course for Dead Sun Harbor. Perhaps it was a sensation of liberation; a true sense of freedom, unbound and unhindered by his contractual obligations to the Scion’s of Antiquity. He felt re-branded as a free man with the order to set sail, if even he had always been free up until that moment. That moment… it was a moment of re-grasping lawlessness. To do as he wanted, take what he wanted and become whatever he wanted.
The Queen’s Gambit was a ship of rumor. Under its previous ownership of Lucia Vitae it was herald as something alive. The way it cut through water, reaching and peddling its own way through the growing and dying of floral limbs was a tale that had stretched from one side of the sea to the other. It could not be taken down, at least some had believed, for when cannon fire ripped through its knotted wood hull it simply grew back together. That was, until the woman died.
The Queen’s Gambit of today had lost its magical roots, but still had the same naked hull shape since its mistress had perished. Only now its ship-eating bulwark bow in the shape of a sea monster’s maw belonged to none other than the Pirate King himself. The skeletal structure had been repurposed with partial Titans Wood from the crystalsong forest and her hull was as pitch as the feathers of a raven’s body with all three large masts newly fitted with undamaged sails the color of storm clouds. She was nameless on the port and starboard sides, save for the curves which defined her and the fittings of two large scarab ornaments that hung just behind the line of the stem. The rest of her defacing were a series of carvings, all varying sigils and Tanari runic hieroglyphs that could be found throughout her exterior and interior.
My beautiful little one of a kind sweetheart, Miss Sunday, is finally finished and ready to find her new home! I’m so incredibly proud of this custom doll and happy to show her off to you all! I hope you like her too!
Sunday used to be a Skull Shores Draculaura. I repainted her face and rooted her new hair, which is called candle wicking thread (has nothing to do with candles, just a really soft thread) - I hand made her t-shirt, socks/ankle warmers, and skirt, and hand painted the art on her t-shirt. The little pink coat is from an Ever After High Ashlynn doll. I hand painted her shoes (from an EAH Cerise doll) and her stockings are made by TheDaughterWhoSews on Etsy. I made her little hair bows myself, and her hair is otherwise decorated with beads and accessories from Monster High fashion packs to serve as barrettes! Her jewelry is both hand made by me and items from other MH dolls. I hand made her stand as well, from repurposed wood, scrapbook paper, some cute ribbon, and a fimo rainbow!
Sunday is inspired by the wild and adorable street fashions of young girls in Japan, known as Decora or Fairy Kei fashion. I’ve never seen these amazing outfits in person but find them infinitely inspiring from online photos.
