time for another photoset


Throwback to when the Suggs were in on the DanAndPhilCRAFTS hype


“We understand death for the first time when he puts his hand upon one whom we love”

Madame de Staël

“He-he’s dead…Amatus no! Please no!


“A heart you can cry on. I’ll lend it to you just for today.”

Hamatora was a cute(?) show. They all have interesting names/designs, and murani slowly grew on me.


Another photoset about Tianzi (鈿子). This time there are more pictures of how different kind of Tianzi looks like. Though it is worn by Noblemwomen of Manchuria, there are still slight difference between what patterns and materials are used.

The photo on top shows exactly the type of Tianzi worn by the Noblemwomen in the portrait. The use of jade beads and golden Phoenix on this Tianzi called Five Phoenix Tianzi (五鳳鈿子) is the signature of Royal headwear.

From the photo of Consort Jin (瑾妃) you can see her wearing another type of Tianzi which is much taller and bulkier but still looks rather fancy. At the bottom you can see another modern women wearing Tianzi that is worn by Manchurian women who are of lower ranking or originated from Manchuria rather than born in China. Her Tianzi is much simpler but still very elegant.

Here is a previous post I made about Tianzi

  • Another Jolyne photoset
  • Another Victuuri gifset, this time based on old-timey romantic songs
    (photoshop hates me and crashes every 30 minutes or so, which makes things a bit more complicated)
  • I’ve started reading: The Idiot (Dostoyevsky), The House of Hades (PJO series/Rick Riordan) and My Hero Academia (Kohei Horikoshi). I want to finish the first two and get up to date on with the third before the year is over
  • A short story I’ve been working since… April, I think?
  • The outline for two other stories
  • A buttload of fanfiction. I also would love to finish at least one before the year is over. please @ self
