the wolf and the lark

Nighttime Adventures

There flowed in her veins some of the blood of the bohemian and the adventuress who runs barefoot.


So a short comic, in which Eponine is the one to find Cosette in her garden and takes her on a romantic adventure through the streets of Paris, because Eponine would know all the best places in the city from her nighttime wanderings and then they kiss and stuff.

I meant to be working on my Real Serious Art with a Real Serious Deadline but… half-assed watercolor Cosette just kind of happened to me and I was about to add Marius to her but… uh. clearly he was busy sleeping with Courfeyrac because Eponine showed up instead. 

this is definitely for pipistrellus, who encouraged me to read The Brick and deserves nice things (like canon era femslash).  

Fic Recs: Sterek Snowed In

Sterek snowed in fic recs for the peeps in the southern states getting nailed with this ice storm. So congrats on the snow day :) and here’s some fics to help with the cabin fever. 

Snow Flirting by thepsychicclam | 11,396

As Beacon Hills get pounded with foot after foot of snow, single dad Stiles can’t quite keep up with his four year old, his job, and shoveling his driveway. Derek makes his teenage son shovel Stiles’ walk, and that just leads to Derek helping Stiles out with a whole bunch of other tasks. That’s okay with Derek, though, cause any chance to be with Stiles is okay with him.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside by Jebiwonkenobi | 2,791

Beacon Hills has a snow storm. Totally-not-cuddling happens.

Come Fly With Me (Or Don’t) by stilinskisparkles | 15,325

Stiles is overworked and stressed out when his flight home gets delayed due to copious amounts of snow. He finds entertainment with one Derek Hale, whom he hasn’t seen since high school but really doesn’t mind getting reacquainted with.

Especially when it turns out Derek is surprisingly hilarious and will reluctantly play snap with him. And can walk on his hands.

The Man in the Snow by mikkimouse | 15,894

Derek finds a young man injured in a ravine on the border of his ranch. That’s strange enough, but the mystery only deepens when the young man wakes up without any memory of what he was doing out there.

Blizzard Boyfriend by literaryoblivion | 1,897

With a record-breaking snowstorm on the horizon, threatening a city shutdown for a few days, Stiles gets the bright idea to put an ad up on craigslist for someone to spend his snow days with that would be filled with cuddling, movies, alcohol, and potential makeouts or more.

It’s a joke until someone responds.

and home before dark by verity | 3,175

The mystery of the absent Hale brother was hardly a mystery at all until he appeared at last, set on taking up residence out in the woods.

(In which Derek is a hedgewitch. With a cat.)

Let it snow! Let it snow! (but please let it stop eventually) by relenafanel | 19,123

Stiles grew up with his bedroom window overlooking Derek’s bedroom, so when he returns home for the holidays he’s surprised to find a stranger in his nerdy neighbour’s bedroom.

Only, he’s not much of a stranger.

It is Derek Hale, the guy who is going to be his new step brother, if the rumours are true.

Red Against the Snow by Ember | 34,219

Stiles is trapped for the holidays in the cabin of a strange man/hermit named Derek. A strangely friendly wolf befriends Stiles during his stay. It’s up to the teenager to find out why Derek has secluded himself from society, what the feelings he’s beginning to have means, and what the connection between the mysterious man and the mysterious black wolf is.

an exaltation of larks by llassah | 25,370

All Derek wants is to get through the lambing season with his body and spirit intact. He had thought that the blizzards would be the main danger, not a highborn omega with beautiful eyes and a stubborn streak.

The flamingo in the yard by Vendelin | 6,107

It isn’t fair that Stiles needs to work Christmas, when his dad is on the other side of the country. Or that his really hot, next door neighbour is around for the holidays as well. Or that there’s a power outage that makes things even worse. Or better.

(Fake) Winter Weather Brings Us Together by tylerfucklin (zimothy) | 10,535

So naked cuddling with Derek while suffering from hypothermia wasn’t really on Stiles’ to-do list for the week, but neither was that kiss–so who was Stiles to complain?

It’s a Wild Pitch (But He’s a Contact Hitter) by jettiebettie | 11,828

They’re combating supernatural forces with blunt instruments now. Seems legit. As long as Stiles doesn’t end up getting frostbite, he’s willing to roll with it. Not that his friends have to worry about that. Fucking werewolves.

Abominable by Revenant | 20,277

Where Derek buys a secluded cabin halfway up a mountain, meets a yeti and falls in love with Stiles, but not necessarily in that order.

pink had never been eponine’s colour. it was too garish, too sickly, too sweet, too tender, it was too most things. eponine felt far more at home in greys, blacks, reds and golds – bold, but not too much of anything. cosette delighted in pinks of all shades but especially pastel pinks that seemed to intensify how soft and warm her complexion was, eponine noted. after cosette moved in, pink began to drip through their home, from cushions to bed linen, make-up to toothbrushes. with every pink item that made its way to eponine, cosette smiled. cosette smiled at pink and that’s how eponine decided pink was her favourite colour.

Dan and Jack being a wolf and lion respectively makes me so happy. Both those dudes are pretty friendly and gentle, and the turn around of a lot of predator stereotypes is one of my favorite things. Just imagining things like what people's faces must look like when they see lanky lark Gavin bossing around military wolf Dan for the first time sends me into fits of laughter.

HECK YESSS

This is everything that is important to me.

Like I feel like I haven’t expressed enough how much I love wolf!Dan for so many different reasons. SO LET ME JUST TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO TELL YOU HOW GREAT WOLF!DAN IS. *backflips onto stage* and continue saying how great lion!jack is also

TL;DR in readmore!
