the amazing life challenge

It was one of the best experiences of my life. It was amazing. It was a real challenge. I think the movie’s gonna be great. I think he’s amazing. It was pretty amazing to be involved in the whole project. I’m a massive fan of his movies in general. I really loved being the new guy, to be honest. I loved kinda being so far out from my comfort zone. It felt really good to kinda have no idea what I was doing for a little bit.

You felt absolutely horrible as you stepped out of the car onto the red carpet. You saw the faces of every journalist turn to shock when they saw Chris. The flashes instantly went crazy. Well, they always were on the red carpet, but it seemed as if they were all aimed at you and Chris at the moment. You had done your best to help him cover his eye, but the rapidly forming colors were still very visible, especially in the harsh light of the many camera flashes.

You felt horrible enough as it was. The journalists shouting at Chris asking him what happened didn’t make you feel even the slightest bit better.

Poor life choices,” Chris smirked at a few of the journalists, wrapping his arm around your waist, giving your hip a small squeeze. “I’m fine baby. Quit worrying,” Chris whispered in your ear before pressing a kiss to your cheek. You looked up into his blue eyes just as he sent you that million dollar smile of his that never failed to make you weak in the knees. “Besides, it was my own fault anyway,” he spoke softly making you smile and shake your head slightly as you remembered how his eye had gotten to be so colorful.

Finally married to the rebel prince. 😏

I’m glad this wasn’t a diamond choice BTW. And I’m glad the cousin(Violet) got to walk alongside them to bring MC(Tharah) to her future hubby.

And he looks so handsome in his suit. 😏 Very, VERY handsome. 😊

And the way he looked at MC as she walk towards him. (Although I’m assuming this is more of a general thing, like this is how Mr. Sloan and Dean looks at her too)

And how their life will be an amazing adventure, full of love and joy, challenging but worth all the hardship, full of moments to remember, growing alongside each other. As it should be.

Also, can’t help but see the reference in this last few moments from Leo’s vow. Jumbled, but it’s there. (Truly, madly, deeply is a Savage Garden song, for those who are too young to know about it. I say listen to it. It kind of is how I see this marriage playing out.)

I, personally, am not a fan of weddings. But this one, so far, is cute. The ceremony in itself was well executed, and the vows were sweet and thoughtful.

It’s not the end for them tho. There will be another chapter next week and I can’t wait to see how things play out in the end and I actually am hoping it really is the end because I can’t take anymore tasks it feels like it’s been dragged for too long it’s exhausting sometimes. It’s almost over, the longest summer in MC’s and her family’s life. I am sincerely hoping for a truly happy ending for everyone. including the Aunt(Mallory). (Bartholomew was drooling all over her omg)

mszeldafire  asked:

1) Your artstyle is beautiful. I am in awe (and super jealous, lol) It's so expressive and painterly! The texture! AH! How do you do it?! 2) Your Hartwin 30 challenge is amazing and gives me so much life! I just watched Kingsman for the first time about 10 days ago (slap me for waiting so long, jeeze) and I've been deep in Hartwin since, but haven't found a lot of art and I'm so happy I found yours because yay Hartwin and it's also just phenomenal!

Hello and thank you! I’m so happy that kingsman fandom is not completely dead bc I still love creating art for you guys. <3 And btw,, my style there is so very simple, I use like 3 tools in SAI. haha. 


Finished the three most amazing, challenging, teaching, eventful, experience filled months of my life with some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met and am now going to the field. Good luck to me (and to the intelligence unit I’m going to be assigned to. God knows they’ll need it)

my god

these past three weeks have been some of the most amazing, but most intense and challenging and exhausting, of my entire life. I’ve been to two different countries, taken six flights, more trains and buses and taxis than I can count, barely slept in the same place twice, and done and seen some of the most incredible things ever.

but I’m exhausted.

luckily, I have a few days to unwind before diving back into the breach with a new school year!
