Imagine: Your best friend Tris announcing that she is pregnant with her husband, Four’s, baby.

*Note: Pretend the war never actually happened, so pretty much everyone is still alive…*

You sit in your apartment with your friends Christina, Will, Uriah, Zeke, Shauna, Marlene, and Lynn. You were having a dinner party for a few of your close friends and the only people you were waiting on were the lovely couple, Four and Tris.  

Finally you hear a knock on your door and you let the two of them in, after a fun filled dinner Tris spoke up, “Um guys, I-we have an announcement to make.”

She got a few raised eyebrows, and you and Christina exchanged a glance before you said, “What is it Tris?”

“I-I’m,” She looks down at her husband who smiles back at her kindly, “I’m pregnant!”

You widen your eyes and Christina squeals, you all stand up, and you and Christina jump up and down in excitement, “Oh my God Y/N, we’re going to be aunts!”

You both give Tris a hug and the other congratulate both her and Four.

The rest of the night is spent helping Tris and Four think of baby names and playing tons of games, which result in most of you falling asleep in your living room.

 A/N: Sorry if this isn’t what you were looking for, but I tried my best!

Hey! Do you have any suggestions as far as books / other resources for calligraphy and other types of lettering?

Hi, I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to get to your question. I went to the library and picked out some books that I’d been interested in for a while. 

  1.  Hand Lettering Ledger by Mary Kate McDevitt - really really good with great illustrations and step-by-step guides. It shows you many different styles of lettering and teaches you the basic principles of typography. The book also has practice pages so I can see that being really handy if you purchase the book
  2. Creative Lettering and Beyond by Gabri Joy Kirkendall, Laura Lavender, Julie Manwaring & Shauna Lynn Panczyszyn - I loved the illustrations that are included in the book and it has a pretty good format but I felt that it was definitely just for beginners as it didn’t really go in depth about the the ‘why’ of it all. I do like that the different authors/artists teach you about a specific style of lettering and there are practice pages included in this book too. So it’s a good buy for a beginner.
  3. Lettering (a reference manual of techniques) by Andrew Haslam - This one is a bit too wordy for my liking. It’s definitely a good reference book but it doesn’t teach you lettering the same way as the other two books. It has a bit more information about the history of type and the tools used, so it would be perfect source material if you’d like to write an essay on lettering. 

I’d also suggesting following blogs such as @typeworship @typostrate @goodtypography @betype @typejunkie @typegang on tumblr and Instagram. They post photos from other typographers and it’s just this awesome wave of inspiration. 

So, best of luck!
