they're crows


“He’s not my student!” Yep, no similarities at all. Totally not related.

“He had carried her, fought beside her, spent whole nights next to her, both of them on their bellies, peering through a long glass, watching some warehouse or merch’s mansion. This was nothing like that. He was sick and frightened, his body slick with sweat, but he was here. He watched that pulse, the evidence of her heart, matching his own beat for anxious beat. He saw the damp curve of her neck, the gleam of her brown skin. He wanted to … He wanted.
Before he even knew what he intended, he lowered his head. She drew in a sharp breath. His lips hovered just above the warm juncture between her shoulder and the column of her neck. He waited. Tell me to stop. Push me away.
She exhaled. “Go on,” she repeated. Finish the story.”

sixofcrowsnw challenge: take two ≡ best moment of your otp

kanej + religion

anonymous asked:

You should do more things like the Kanej + if the other one died post, but with the other SoC ships

Well, you asked for it. 

Wesper + if the other one died 


  • would probably stop inventing all together
  • because Jesper always interrupted his working processes by stealing kisses from him, effectively distracting Wylan from his work 
  • so whenever he tries to bury his grief by working, Jesper pops up in his mind despite his best efforts 
  • he breaks the flute Jesper gave him for his birthday in half and tosses the pieces in the Ketterdam harbor 
  • Marya Hendriks has to hug him daily as he cries into her shoulder 
  • he grows distant from the rest of the Dregs, shuts himself up the Van Eck mansion to become a hermit 
  • he lugs a sledgehammer into the huge library and starts breaking down the bookshelves, scattering the bound books everywhere
  • because no one’s going to read to him every night now, no one’s going to curl his hair while slipping the words off their tongue like silk
  • he loses his sense of curiosity and wonder, one of the many things Jesper admired about him
  • and when Kaz greets Wylan, he notes how similar the two of them are now, down to the mannerisms, values, and closed off emotions
  • Wylan throws himself into the brutal and gritty work of a Barrel gang, abandoning his usual role of pyrotechnician
  • and when Kaz leaves Ketterdam to start a new life with Inej, Wylan becomes the new leader of the Dregs, and the Barrel gangs whisper how he’s sometimes more ruthless than Kaz ever was


  • he leaves Kerch for good and drifts to Novyi Zem 
  • because he can no longer wander Ketterdam’s streets without thinking about the golden haired prince who used to wait for him at the Van Eck mansion
  • he takes Marya with him because he can’t bear to leave her alone to grieve in the huge estate
  • because no matter how much he hurts, he can’t imagine how agonizing Wylan’s death must feel for his mother, who’s lost him twice now
  • he buries his guns on top of a hill near his father’s farm, but vows that he’ll use his powers for good
  • Jesper’s heart shrivels when he realizes that Wylan never got to see him using his Grisha powers to help others
  • never say Colm Fahey isn’t a good father; he tries to help Jesper get through his heartbreak, because he knows all too well how it feels to lose someone you love dearly 
  • Jesper scours Novyi Zem for more Grisha and constantly contacts Nina and Kuwei if he thinks said Grisha needs training in Ravka 
  • Jesper himself goes to Ravka one day to see what exactly he could do if he pushed his powers 
  • Jesper trains vigorously with Kuwei, intent on developing his magic to its maximum potential
  • and when he sees the occasional flash of golden hair in the hallways of the Little Palace
  • his breath catches and he reaches out a disbelieving hand
  • “Wy-” 
  • before the truth hits him a second later and his chest aches like someone’s put a clean shot through his heart

Kaz leaned back. “What’s the easiest way to steal a man’s wallet?”
“Knife to the throat?” asked Inej.
“Gun to the back?” said Jesper.
“Poison in his cup?” suggested Nina.
“You’re all horrible,” said Matthias.


Some first quick scribbles of some amazing characters after reading Six of Crows, trying to figure out how to draw them. Hoping to do more fanart (and rereading) soon ^^


If anyone out there is having a bad day, here’s an adorable montage of Jonah and The Bots putting on goofy Christmas sweaters!

The Crows +Kuwei as Cinnamon Rolls
  • <p> <b>Wylan:</b> Looks like a cinnamon roll, and is actually a cinnamon roll.<p/><b>Jesper:</b> Looks like a cinnamon roll, but could actually kill you.<p/><b>Inej:</b> Looks like she could kill you, but is actually a cinnamon roll.<p/><b>Kaz:</b> Looks like he could kill, would probably kill you.<p/><b>Kuwei:</b> Has a salty exterior, but is actually a cinnamon roll.<p/><b>Nina:</b> Looks like a cinnamon roll, is actually a SINnamon roll.<p/><b>Matthias:</b> Precious cinnamon roll. Too pure for this world.<p/></p>

there’s a whole bunch of crows that just chill in my back yard and scream all day. i love them so much and sometimes i feed them. if you want to befriend crows the best thing to feed them for health, money, an convenience reasons is probably unsalted, in shell peanuts. its cheap you can buy like a pound of them, and its better for them than most things people feed them. plus they love deshelling them. if you want a bunch of weird friends who scream at you and give you shiny things, buy unsalted in shell peanuts.
