Wings - an ACOMAF fanfic

This is my first acomaf fanfic and first piece of fanfiction in general that I have posted in a while. Been working on this for a bit and am hoping people will like it. It’s not perfect but when I thought of the idea I really wanted to write it.

All characters belong to Sarah J Maas.

Setting: the cabin in the mountains

Ship: Feyrhys/Feysand

Words: 1008

Feyre ambled through the cabin door, out of the biting air, Rhys ahead, already settled down comfortably in his armchair, looking like a king upon his throne.

“Feyre, darling, let me get you some water, you are a mess.” he insisted, smiling slyly.

“Thanks.” she muttered, attempting to throw her mate a cold glare but failing to do so due to her drowsiness.

She slunk over to the sofa and collapsed, sprawled across the mismatched blankets and cushions. Rhys snickered as he poured her a glass of ice water and grabbed a piece of fruit for himself. He strolled over, shifting her so she was upright, her head lolled against the armrest. He ran his fingers through her teased hair and placed the water on the table beside her.

“We could have stayed out you know, with Mor and Az, I’m completely fine.” she mumbled, her eyes slowly opening.

Rhys took a bite of his apple, “I’m not so sure about that Feyre, those two will be having fun on their own anyway.” he smirked at her suggestively with taunting eyes.

This wasn’t the first time Rhys had taken care of Feyre in this state, she seemed to be what many people considered a ‘lightweight’ and that certainly didn’t bode well when drinking alongside Mor, who was as aggressive in battle as she was at playing drinking games.

Feyre sipped the water, staring curiously at Rhysand, he returned this gaze.

“Yes?” he inquired.

“I want to paint you, not paint a portrait of you, I want to paint on you.” she stared at Rhys, anticipating his response.

“I’m not sure that’s the best idea when you’re in this state.” Rhys raised his eyebrows at Feyre.

“I told you I’m fine, I can still paint” She responded, trying to sound lively and cheerful.

“I’m not sure darling, perhaps I could paint on you?” Rhys took Feyre’s hand, grinning wildly at her.

“Uhhh, I mean.” Rhys stared expectantly, waiting for a response. “Fine.” she breathed at last.

Rhys strolled out of the room confidently, to find the paint, or what was left of it after last time. He threw his apple in a bin that appeared out of nowhere as he made his way through the enchanted cabin, full of surprises that often he didn’t even expect. Smiling to himself, he knew this would be fun. That thought was exemplified when he returned to find his mate’s shoes, jewellery and tights strewn across the floor, with Feyre herself tugging angrily at the zip on her dress.

Rhys glided over and guided her hands away from the zip, to the sides of her body. He swept Feyre’s messy hair over her shoulder, his nose caressing the back of her neck.

“Allow me.” he whispered flirtatiously into Feyre’s ear, she could almost feel him grinning against her neck.

Rhys tugged at the zip furiously as she had, his frustration growing, after a few seconds he began to see no other option and simply ripped the dress off her.

Feyre turned, “Big, strong, Illyrian High Lord can’t even undo a zip?” she laughed.

Rhys put a finger to her lips and grinned, walking towards the door to their shared room, “Come” he beckoned, picking up the paints on his way out.

Feyre had never seen Rhys so keen to paint anything before and was curious as she followed him into the room.

“Sit on the bed Feyre, I’m going to make you fly.” He ordered, looking delighted.

Obeying her mate she sat, looking slightly confused. Rhys climbed onto the enormous bed and sat behind her, pulling her hair out of the way of her back.

He started by placing his hands on her warm back and tracing out an outline of what was to be his design with his fingers. Feyre sat quietly, trying to feel the pattern he was tracing softly with his calloused fingertips. The wet paint hit her skin and strokes evolved into swirls as Rhys delicately directed the paintbrush along Feyre’s back. She was entirely still, channelling the portrait on the wall of a stiff looking woman as she allowed her body to be a canvas for her mate.

A few minutes later the brushstrokes stopped.

“It’s done.” Rhys murmured as he shuffled off the bed, taking a step back to review his masterpiece. Feyre could feel his eyes upon her, assessing his creation, nervous of her reaction.

“I want to see.” Feyre responded, excitedly. She always dreamt about creating the most beautiful work of art, but to be a work of art was something else.

Rhys nodded anxiously and lifted Feyre off the bed, carefully avoiding the paint covering her upper back. He put her down in front of a mirror and turned her round so that she could see.

Feyre’s eyes widened at the sight of what she had become. Illyrian wings covered her back, no ordinary Illyrian wings, these were incredible. Feyre had always admired Rhys’ enormous midnight wings, but these were something else. Strokes of green, gold, scarlet and blue had mixed among each other to form these beautiful wings.  They were like the Rainbow of Velaris, all the colours merged together, swirled into each other and against each other. Tears began to cloud her vision.

“I wasn’t sure they’d work.. but I’d always though Illyrian wings would look nice with a few more colours, If you don’t like them…” Rhys started apologetically.

Nice? Rhys, these are magnificent. Thank you.” Feyre cut in, her face awash with gratefulness. She turned to her mate, pulling his arms around her and burying her head in his jasmine scented chest.

“I know you’re the artist, Feyre, I just wanted to make you some art that would be your own, for you, my High Lady.” Rhys drew his head back and looked into Feyre’s eyes, glistening tears slowly falling.

Hiccup

[A short story that kinda got out of hand regarding its lenght - it was supposed to be a drabble…. oh well! °xD Once again this is @buginette-et-chaton​‘s fault, because she was the one who randomly told me that kissing helps when you’re having hiccups, like I had at that moment x’D …wtf?!]

[On AO3!]


“Could you please stop that already?”

Ladybug was glaring at her partner, icy blue eyes narrowed and her piercing stare sharper than a knife. Chat Noir raised his head, an apologetic smile gracing his lips and one black-clad paw pressed to his mouth.

Hicc!

There it was again. The teenager could see how wrinkles appeared on the girl’s forehead as her brows furrowed, hidden underneath the red fabric of her mask. If he could, he would stop those sounds the moment she wished for it – but there were things he couldn’t change at will. Hiccups were some of those, especially if they were caused by none other than an akumatised villain. He stopped breathing, his hand still covering his lips, but it didn’t help. It didn’t stop.

Hicc!

The Requested Anime Gif Tutorial. (For Timeline Only)

This tutorial will cover the you need to make your own gifs. I’m using Photoshop Cs5 Extended, though this tutorial should work with those that have the timeline as well. I will not be covering how to make gifs that are not anime so if you are looking to gif real life humans, backgrounds, etc.. this probably wont help as much as it should. I will also not be covering how to get photoshop so just look around and you will definitely find one with a timeline

Use KMPlayer. If your not already using KMPlayer you are missing out on a lot. KMPlayer is a necessity for anime giffers and most top giffers will be using its built in sharpening feature. Load your vid you want to gif and open screen capture. (Press CTRL+G or right click and go to capture and then frame extract) Here we will be changing some settings. In your frame extraction screen copy these settings.

These are my settings I use when capturing my frames. The prefix can be anything just keep it small and the digits should be 1. I like to extract every 2 frames as anime has a lot of double frames that become a pain to remove otherwise. The main thing you should be focusing on though is the size to extract. I forgot to click specified size but that should be clicked and the size should be 540 or 500 if your still using old tumblr dimensions. MAKE SURE ITS ON SPECIFIED SIZE AND YOUR DIMENSIONS ARE 540x303 OR 500x281. The KMPlayer sharpening will not happen otherwise. Click start at the beginning of what you want to gif and click stop once you have gotten what you want to gif.

 After you have extracted the frames you want to gif go ahead to where they got extracted and delete all the frames that are the same. This keeps your flow of the gif smooth and lowers the file size also.

Here are the frames before deleting all the double frames.

Here are the frames after deleting the double frames.

You can also rename them at this point, but I don’t always do that as the prefix usually does that for me. Ok now load your frames in Photoshop. Here’s how if you don’t know already

Go ahead and click your first frame, then scroll all the way down to your last frame and hold shift and click on the last frame. This should highlight all your frames.

Click OK and start loading your frames. Make sure you load them with these settings aswell.

Click OK and begin loading. This should really only take a minute or two unless you have a lot of frames (which I would not recommend beginners to attempt. Try keep most of your gifs 30 frames and under, I will explain why later.) After your frames are loaded your screen might look something like this

If this is the case just click on this little button right here.

That should turn it into this.

Go to this button 

and click on make frames from layers. This should give you a screen something like this.

Ok from here go back to that button and click on reverse frames. When you first load your frames the frames are reversed so this makes it back to normal.

 Go back to that button and the click on select all frames, go to this little arrow under the frames, click it and then click on other.

Change the timing to 0.09 this is the optimum speed gifs should go at imo. Making it any lower will be too fast and making it any higher will be too slow. I know the whole giffing community says the best speed is 0.13 but at that speed I find it hard to ignore the gifs stuttering. (This speed is different for graphic makers and 0.09 should mainly be used for normal gifs) Go ahead and play your gif to see if it is working fine or not and change the looping  from once to forever if you have not done so already.

OK at this stage your gif should be finished (technically) however if you want your gif to look nice then go ahead and click on the timeline button again.

Click on the top pic in your frames and scroll down to the bottom frame and hold shift and click on the bottom frame to select all of them.

Right click on one of the frames and click convert to smart object. It should turn your frames into something like this.

From here we can sharpen our gifs and also colour them pretty easily. I recommend not using an action for sharpening as every anime is different and have different levels of sharpening involved. Click on filters, sharpen and then smart sharpen.

Change the sharpening to these settings

There is a reason I am not using 500 by 0.3 and that is because in my gifs I like to sharpen twice. First being between 200-350 on 0.3 and then the second sharpening layer 40-60 by 0.5 This makes the sharpening thicker and looks better imo but if you want to just use 500 by 0.3 knock your selves out. Ok here is the step a lot of people struggle with. DO NOT OVER SHARPEN YOUR GIF. I’ve seen gifs and made plenty of gifs myself where the sharpening is so much the a white line appears and makes the entire gif look ugly. If your gif is over sharpened and you can see a white line over the real line then lower the amount of sharpening you use until it is gone.

 Here is how it should NOT look like

Here is how it SHOULD look like

Here is the original to compare.

Your smart object should look something like this now

If you only used 500 by 0.3 then there wont be another smart sharpen on top and there will only be one. This step is optional but I like to use surface blur on my gifs as it makes everything smoother and better looking. go to filters, blur and then at the bottom surface blur. Here are my surface blur settings

MAKE SURE YOU KEEP YOUR RADIUS 3 AND KEEP YOUR THRESHOLD BETWEEN 3-6. I’ve seen plenty of gifs where people use waaaaay too much surface blur which make the gif look too soft and A LOT of detail is lost if you put it too high.

OK here comes the hardest part of making and anime gif…. that is the colouring. Learning how to colour and make a certain scene look nice takes time and experience. You have to learn what enhances the right colours and what keeps the filesize and grain low. If you are starting out I HIGHLY recommend using PSDS made by other tumblr users and colouring your scenes with them. This lets you see what they used to make the gif look good and shows you what you could use later on when you are colouring gifs yourself. Slowly but surely you WILL learn how to colour by yourself and will not need the help of other PSDS. I mainly use PSDS made by myself so I know which PSD works with each different gif.

Here is the gif without colouring

 Here is the gif with colouring.

Ok once you are done colouring your gif you are done! Congrats if you have made it this far, there is only a bit left to go. 

Go to file and save for web and devices.

Here are my settings when making gifs MAKE SURE IT IS ON PATTERN. Pattern makes the gifs the best quality it can possibly be and looks much much better than diffusion, noise and no dither. I would advise staying away from them ESPECIALLY NO DITHER as it makes colours all over the screen. You should only switch between adaptive and selective also. Check to see which one gives the least amount of grain before saving your gif or if your gif is over the size limit then pick the only which makes the size go lower. Never turn transparency off as it also bloats the file size. 

If your file size is 2mb or over 2mb (you can check here if it is)

(The filesize on this gif is 1.2mb) then you have the option to lower the colours of your gif. Just click on this button and click optimize to file size.

Write 1999 and click ok.

This will lower the colours of your gif and making it fit under 2mb. Although I would recommend NOT using this method until last resort as the gif becomes ugly sometimes. This is also why I said at the start to keep your frames under 30 as less frames = less filesize.

MAKE SURE YOUR LOOPING OPTION IS ON FOREVER. Theres nothing worse than making a good gif and making it only play once.

Play your gif and see if it is the way you want it to be and then click save. Voila! you are done and ready to upload your gif to Tumblr.

FINAL RESULT

Hope this guide helped and encouraged people who didn’t know how to make gifs or people struggling and looking for advice make better looking gifs and learn different techniques. I hope to see plenty of great looking anime gifs in the future!

Hello! Hope everyone’s looking forward to the weekend! I sure am… Well here’s an early sneak peek of a Merthur piece I’ve been slowly (but steadily) working on for the dear vanhelsing019​, one of the three winners of my art giveaway. Needed a break from the lineart once I got to Arthur’s hair so I spent some time colouring… This’ll definitely be one of my more detailed, prolonged pieces, so I might get the urge to share a couple more WIPs like this, though that’s not typical from me. I’m not gonna reveal exactly what I’ve been requested to draw, but the next peek may offer an actual clue! So stay tuned! ^_~ (MY ART TAG

Paint

Word count: 7777 (omg that’s so cool)

Summary: Phil lives in a world where everyone is blank. Their skin is as white as paper and the only colours they have are their clothes, hair and eyes. You are only able to gain your true colours after you find your soulmate, with whom you share your colour, after your 18th birthday. Phil is 25 and has been waiting 7 years to find his colour, but he didn’t think the meeting would be as casual as he imagined.

Warnings: Smut glorious smuttt

Disclaimer: We’re not being racist, but as everyone has a certain colour they share with their soulmate (like hot pink or yellow or sunset orange etc) everyone is just blank and as the colours spread like watercolours literal white skin was the best imagery (WE AREN’T BEING RACIST WE PROMISE AS PEOPLE GET THEIR REAL SKIN COLOURS AFTER GOING THEIR SOULMATE COLOUR IT’S CONFUSING OKAY JUST ROLL WiTH IT)

AN: Co-written with the amazing Lauryn and because of that it’s on both our accounts <3

I’ve always hated the usual coffee shop rush. There is always a queue, people spilling drinks and chattering too loudly.

“Order for Phil!” A woman calls out and I shuffle quickly to the front of the queue, accidentally hitting into someone as I go. I mumble a swift ‘sorry’ as I retrieve my much needed coffee before turning around to see if there is anywhere to sit. If it isn’t too late.

I check my watch and then my eyes widen. My bare arm is blue.
