So… I read the Six of Crows dulogy, I adored it, so here’s fanart of the team in a sort of animated series style inspired by Studio Mir (ATLA/LOK/VLD)

I have plans for more :D

“It was a relief to have Klaus back with them, of course, but the Baudelaire sisters did not feel relieved, not one bit.”

I forgot I drew this when I was re-reading the 4th book like a month ago! The Miserable Mill has always been one of my fave books in the series because I really love the theme of hypnotism and sibling appreciation! They just love and care for one another so much :’)

books meme: 1/7 friendships - the seven (heroes of olympus)

Seven half-bloods shall answer the call,
To storm or fire, the world must fall,
An oath to keep with a final breath,
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death

He was Petyr, her protector, warm and funny and gentle … but he was also Littlefinger, the lord she’d known at King’s Landing, smiling slyly and stroking his beard as he whispered in Queen Cersei’s ear.

Hi everyone, my name is Thomas and I’m a 20yo French guy.
I’m doing a degree in Chinese, History and Literature with some English classes. I’m studying at a University of Languages in France but I also went one year abroad in Taiwan to improve my chinese skills. I’m a book lover and stationery enthusiast!
And this picture is my studying place!

Another set to master basic Japanese grammar:

Note: It’s not effective to have a different set of similar book, just pick the set you like the most. If you like Genki better, get a genki set and so on~

If you ask our opinion, Genki is easier with a more detailed English explanation but explained from English point of view.

While minna no nihongo is a very immersive study book but will confuse and discourage some people.

Our recommendation Try set above is somewhere in the middle. It’s immersive but not to confusing and each grammar is explained from Japanese point of view~

The Queen’s Thief Appreciation Week 
Day Four (May 11) - Favorite Object

Inside the case was a dueling pistol, a king’s weapon, wheel-locked, chased in gold. Eddis had seen it earlier that day. When Sounis lifted it out and tipped his head over the locking mechanism, she knew he was reading the letters inscribed there: Onea realia. “The queen made me.”
     Sounis thanked the queen prettily, years of training providing the appropriate words. As he went to replace the pistol in the box, he paused. There was a tab to lift the bottom of the box and clearly room to store something underneath. Keeping the gun in his hand, he reached with the other, but Gen forestalled him, holding the inset bottom of the box down with a single finger.
     “You have heard my queen’s advice. My gift is below. Would you wait to see it until you have decided what you will do with hers?”

good mods for beginner dragon age players

im sorry bee im trash

  • extra dog slot - take ur small pup pal anywhere!
  • equal love - removes gender restrictions on romances. makes morrigan & alistair bi, and opens opportunities to kiss cute npcs
  • polygamy - romance everyone at once without them getting jealous and loosing approval (also you get an achievement for romancing them all, so you can get that in one play through!)
  • more hairstyles - adds more hairstyles to the character creator not the da:o toolset
  • lock bash - allows all classes to open locked chests, not just rogues
  • no helmet hack - means you can wear a helmet and get the added armour bonus, but you dont have to see it! 
  • gift guide - for if you have the gift dlc i think
  • skip the fade - skips the long ass fade sequence in the tower quest. ideal for second play throughs 
  • ring of invincibility - cheat mod. does exactly what it says on the tin
  • pineappletree’s vibrant colours - adds more eye colours and hair colours to the character creator
  • skip fight - another cheat mod. imemdiately kills all enemies you are fighting. this ones good if you just want to play the story, not all the combat. i love this one
  • expanded inventory - ups your inventory capacity from 70 to 125 (the games max)
  • misha the hoarder - this one adds storage to your camp! along with a fully voiced npc its truly wonderful (honestly why this game didnt have storage as a defauly is completely bamsboozling for me)
  • steal cooldown reduced - for when you’re playing as a rogue and want to pickpocket everyone but you’re tired of having to wait ten seconds between tries
  • no restrictions - removes all restrictions so now anyone can wear any armour
  • advanced quickbar - makes it so you have multiple quickbars you can flip through, so you can access all your attacks and items quicker
  • grey wardens of ferelden - gives all the warden characters the warden armours from dragon age 2! best if you start from the beginning with this one, i dont know how easy it is to pick up the armours later in the game. this mod is absolutely essential imo though
  • extended dog talents - gives your mabari more things to do during fights!
  • attribute talent skill book add - every time you load a save, you get books of power (if you use them you get extra attributes ect as you do on leveling up). these can also be sold for like 5 sovereigns each if you dont want to spend them

okay im done now. honestly i could do more of these for da2 and dai if thats something people might want?

petition to add to the collective fanon that while dipper receives his very own ford-made journal at the end of that first summer (and a new one every year after that probably lbr), mabel gets a book of her own too

it’s wider than dipper’s and matches the light magenta of her favorite sweater, down to the thick golden shooting star sticker on the front… a new scrapbook!

she looks up at ford with a sort of elated confusion. he beams at her, kneels down to her height, and reminds her that without her scrap booking skills and trust, stan wouldn’t have his memory back, and she’s really got a knack for -

he’s not even halfway through the speech he’d prepared when she throws her arms around him and yells, “I LOVE IT! thankyouthankyouthank-”

ford freezes for a second, and then smiles and hugs her back.

like i just wish

that show only watchers could know what Baelish is like in the books

because he’s literally so genial and un-assuming that the only people who suspect he’s up to anything are Tyrion, Varys and Sansa. Everyone else just thinks oh littlefinger. That guy. Yeah he’s good at math and accounts and shit and he’s a bit of a cheeky asshole but nah he’s good man he’s good. He just sits in the corner making one liners and wearing gaudy clothes, what a card.

he didn’t bankrupt the crown through bad book keeping skills, as a lot of show watchers seem to think. that shit was on purpose. He set that house of cards up so that the moment he left it fell to shit. which it did.

And even When everythings falling to shit when he’s already hightailed it to the vale, back in Kings landing Cersei wishes he was back . Would welcome him back to the small council with open arms. Jamie even thinks he would make a good hand lmao.
