A simple christmas outfit for this season of the year
(Actually it can´t be worn outside since it´s much too cold and snowing)
This dress is so festive and wonderful, all the laces and the removable collar and the bow are so beautiful. I like the bonnet too, even it´s really huge. I even tried to make it smaller, without success of course.
1. Pauline Anstruther meets her doppelgänger from Inkling author Charles Williams’ Descent Into Hell. DiH is his only book I’ve read so far but I loved it, especially this character Pauline. It’s dark and surreal and it involves ghosts, demons, succubi, and parallel worlds… Wow!
2. The narrator of George MacDonald’s Lilith, Vane, in the forest of skeletons. (Yes, it’s the Skeleton War.) Lilith is definitely a fave and I 100% recommend it, and I’ve drawn more from it here. Fans of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland might enjoy it! (And indeed, GmD was friends with Lewis Carroll [Charles Dodgson]!)
3. Another of Vane wandering through the parallel universe he finds (He gets there through a portal in an old mirror in the attic of his house).
4. Earth man protagonist Maskull of David Lindsay’s A Voyage To Arcturus meets intimidating alien hunter Oceaxe. David Lindsay’s books are the most similar to George MacDonald’s of any other author I’ve read, this one especially resembles Phantastes. I did this one for @fakegeekgirlslikeus‘s zine!
Specially posted for today, which is George MacDonald’s 193rd birthday! And also this year is the 80th anniversary of Descent into Hell! (Published the same year as The Hobbit!)
doing the Wetlands run and dying 20+ times because there’s no boat to Stormwind from Teldrassil but you really want to play a night elf
running literally all the way to one end of Duskwood and back and hoping to god you don’t run into Stitches because he will beat your ass
also running all the way to one end of Stranglethorn and back
no mounts until level 40
not even being able to afford level 60 mounts
those level 60 night elf mounts that didn’t have the armor on them and I’m a fool for being excited when they got armor
literally anything involving the Onyxia quest chain including EVERY TIME someone triggered the event in the keep room and all of the guards turned into dragons
Naxx and Molten Core attunement quests
Cheating your way into places like underneath Stormwind and Ironforge and also the Ironforge airport and that place you always flew over in Wetlands on the flight path because NO FLYING
when you actually needed every single flight path and if you didn’t know one in between where you were and your destination you were screwed
I dinged level 60 killing the mobs outside of Karazhan before they were leveled up and Kara became a raid
Stormwind park? but also no Stormwind harbor and also the old Stormwind auction house
that PvP building in SW was like a special kid’s club because only people with Knight ranking or some such higher could enter it
easily attainable PvP titles
old water textures
the pre-AQ event when you had to feed NPCs literally any crafting materials you owned
boy anduin wrynn (oh how far we’ve come) and lady katrana prestor chilling next to each other in the keep
no Malfurion in Darnassus it was just Tyrande (but also remember when Staghelm was in Darnassus too)
for some reason I miss those quests in Darkshore where you’d go down the coast and find the remains of turtles and huge sea thresher beasts and have to turn them in to an elf lady who I’m pretty sure died in Cata
having to go to your class trainer to actively learn spells every time you leveled up and sometimes you’d get lazy and not go but then you’d be weak AF and levels behind and learning new spells was just so exciting and rewarding
lockpicking (I remember digging up all the chests from around Sunken Temple and in Redridge Lake just to level up my lockpicking skill like it was basically a third profession)
EARNING REPUTATION WITH THE CENTAUR CLANS IN DESOLACE
I took this picture in October, but forgot to post it, so here it is. Better late than never. Can you spot the subtle Pokémon reference? I stopped following the new Pokémon games/series after Gold/Silver/Crystal on Gameboy colour, but I really like the Mimikyu concept. I was going for an orange and black Halloween style, and added the cute ghost Pokémon pin.

Last Thursday, I went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Japan! Since I am a Slytherclaw, I put together a blue, green and black outfit. What are my followers’ houses?
