Part 1 

Jyn Erso could handle the cold.

She had grown used to surviving any kind of weather while fending for herself. The flurry of snow that rattled the base walls, the icy blasts that raced through the Echo One hangar, none of it deterred her. Nothing would make her move while she was waiting.

He’d been gone four days this time. Not the longest amount of time by any means, but long enough that she was starting to get twitchy. Any longer, and she knew exactly what would start happening – the headaches, anxiety and the severe lack of sleep – and so self-isolation it was. The symptoms came and went, depending if it was a good or bad day and she knew that it probably wasn’t very healthy to have another person’s presence decide whether it was a good day or not, but she’d just been through a goddamn war. She’d handle her issues later.

It was when she kicked her heels against the metal crate she was perched on when she could finally breathe again. His shuttle had announced it was coming in to land over an hour ago, but only now was he finally traipsing back into the hangar, a disgruntled expression on his face as he dusted snow off his jacket. Jyn had stopped caring about what others thought months ago.

She ran.

Carry On Epilogue

“I was eleven years old, and I’d lost my mother, and my soul, and the Crucible gave me you.”
“It made us roommates,” he says.
I shake my head. “We were always more.”
“We were enemies.”
“You were the centre of my universe,” I say. “Everything else spun around you.”
“Because of what I was, Baz. Because of my magic.”
“No.” I’m nearly as frustrated as he is. “Yes. I mean, Crowley, Snow—yes, that was part of it. Looking at you was like looking directly into the sun.”
“I’ll never be that again.”
“No. And thank magic.” I sigh forcefully. “The way you were before … Simon Snow, there wasn’t a day when I believed we’d both live through it.”
“Through what?”
“Life. You were the sun, and I was crashing into you. I’d wake up every morning and think, ‘This will end in flames.’”

You are the “tragedy”, Jon.

Hey give me a childhood memory pretty please, I'm still broken up about snowseph and need some joy

When I was like 12 I wanted to make a really tall snowman and once it got too tall to reach I had the idea of making a step out of snow on both sides so I could keep building. The body of the snowman was also straight because I packed snow into the crevices between the body segments to make it more sturdy.

Now picture that in your head. A long, shaft shaped snowman with two mounds of snow at the base, one on each side. Yeah, it looked like a dick with a smiley face. I was too young to realize and nobody in my family told me. There are pictures of me hugging it

Here’s another basing tutorial that I made a few years ago, this time for ice bases! Again, find reference images to keep on hand, they’re always helpful!

1. If you don’t have a pre-made base, make your own! I find it helps to press the feet of the model you’re making the base for into the modelling material before it dries, to give you a slight imprint of where the feet will go once the base is finished.

2. Prime your base, it doesn’t really matter what colour you use though. Also, it helps to attach the base to a cork or spare paint pot, to give you something to hold onto while you’re painting it.

3. Base coat it with a dark blue, such as the old Necron Abyss. This will show through in the deepest crevices of the ice.

4. The next layer is turquoise, like Sotek Green. Drybrush it on heavily, leaving only a little of the dark blue showing in the deepest recesses.

5. Then drybrush on a light icy blue, such as Lothern Blue. Again, leave some of the dark blue and turquoise showing through in the deeper areas of the ice.

6. After that, drybrush on white. You’ll probably need to do several layers of white to build it up properly.

7. Once you’re satisfied with the result, use a thin layer of Water Effects on the areas that are bare ice, to give them a properly slick, shiny look. Put the base in a dust-free place to dry for 24 hours.

8. And that’s it! You can get different effects by varying the amount of each colour drybrushed on, or by painting thin layers of colour instead of just drybrushing.

9. Once your bases are fully dry, stick your models on them and enjoy! :D

So like a nerd I headed straight for the Rito village for advancing the main story of the game…they’re my favorite Zelda race (BIRD PEOPLE! WINGS!!), and I love the outfit you can buy there, it’s neat and viking-esque and cute!! ;v; I couldn’t decide which color cast I liked better though, so here’s both.

I spent all this time goofing off in the wild, I just now finished my first “Divine Beast” dungeon…it was amazing, and I’m glad to see the story side of this game certainly does not disappoint! :’D

Снежная королева (The Snow Queen)

69 in x of animated feature film history
Release: 1957
Country: Soviet Union
Director: Lev Atamanov

“The Snow Queen is based on a story of the same name by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, first published in 1844.

The story begins with a little man, who says he is ‘Old Dreamy’ (’Ole Lukøje’), telling the tale of the Snow Queen. He starts with two children, Kay and Gerda, planting roses together.

On a winter night following, Gerda’s grandmother tells the two children the legend of the Snow Queen. The Snow Queen’s proud and frowning face is seen in Gerda’s frosted window to Gerda’s exclamation, ‘It’s the Snow Queen!’ Kay jokes, ‘Let her come in here, and I’ll put her on a hot stove!’ This angers the Snow Queen, who is watching the children from her mirror, which she smashes with her scepter, telling the ice splinters of the shattered mirror to go into the eyes and hearts of those who have offended her. Back at Gerda’s home the window bursts open, letting in ice splinters that get into Kay’s eyes and heart. His personality changes: he is hostile toward Gerda. The next day, Kay ties his sled to the sleigh of the Snow Queen, which has suddenly appeared.

Gerda goes out to look for Kay. She faces many adventures; a sorceress attempts to steal her memories; she painstakingly finds a boy who turns out not to be Kay; she’s captured by thieves; and whisked far to the North to save Kay.

In 1959, the film was dubbed into English and released by Universal Pictures. This version is introduced by a six-minute live-action Christmas prologue featuring TV personality Art Linkletter. The American version also contained an entirely rewritten musical score and had three new songs in English, two of which replaced the Russian songs.

Hayao Miyazaki has stated that this film is one of his inspirations to work in animation. When he started his career, Miyazaki had a rough start and was thinking of leaving animation already. When he saw The Snow Queen, he admired it and continued working in anime. In September 2007, it was announced that Studio Ghibli will be distributing this film through their Ghibli Museum Library label, and it was released in December 2007 (in the original Russian audio with Japanese subtitles).”

UPDATED 2/18/17: The Snow Queen is available on YouTube, in both its original subtitled version and its American 1959 release.

concept: a snowy winter morning. school is canceled and we make rushed plans to get together, giddy the whole time. we walk together in the snowfall, tackling each other and giving each other icy kisses that are somehow blazingly warm. we go home and drink hot chocolate, you admiring how lovely it is outside while i admire how your eyes look surrounded by snow. i never want the moment to end.
