Things I expected out of the Grishaverse: action, cool spy stuff, thieving, adventure, royalty, mystical powers, and heartbreak.
Things I did not expect: to have pronounced some of these names so very, very wrong the entire time I read them.

Six of Crows characters as things that I have said/did
  • Kaz: I may be angry... that's it, there's no more to my statement.
  • Inej: currently, I have 7 knives within arms reach, two of which are inside my body.
  • Jesper: My dad was shot in the leg once, but the shooter was crazy good looking though. But it's a shame I was the one who shot my dad in the leg.
  • Nina: I wonder how many pieces of candy I can eat *searches it up* Ok it says here that 262 pieces of "fun-sized" candy could kill you so I guess I'm eating 261 pieces.
  • Matthias: Instead of a maid of honor, we should have a pup of honor, and instead of a best man, we should have a best dog, because I'm insufferable and only dogs will like me.
  • Wylan: Time to set up this game cube *game cube short circuits and breaks the pure silver chain on my mothers 15 carat diamond necklace* OH NO!!!! MY GAME CUBE!!!!

I HIT 1K FOLLOWERS!!!!

Now, this didn’t just happen, and now I have about three hundred more than that, but I took the time to make this Grishaverse drawing based on the end credits for the anime show Durarara!

I couldn’t make the pictures perfectly aligned, so I’m sorry about that, but I hope you all liked it. I worked so hard on it, and all for my followers. This is such an awesome experience, and I’m happy to share my blog with all of you. 

This was all drawn in my sketchbook using pencil and markers, and I’m very proud of it so PLEASE DON’T REPOST TO TUMBLR OR OTHER PLATFORMS WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. 

Again, thank you to my followers, but special thanks to @lbardugo for her awesome works and even more awesome characters have inspired me to draw a whole shitton of art. Your writing is what makes this blog as popular as it is, and I’m indebted to you for that!

never let anyone tell you that books are a waste of time, because six of crows changed my life. I can’t pinpoint why it makes me feel like everything is and will be okay, but something happened when i was reading that book, and i’m fucking glad of it. I fell in love. With the characters, with the plot, with the writing. But also of the thrill of something new. I felt like i was living through them all, like i was feeling through them. I related to Wylan, with the way he speaks and the way he thinks. It’s incredible. Thank you @lbardugo for writing two books so utterly breathtaking that i’m pretty sure they’ve changed my life.

What do you like?’
‘Music. Numbers. Equations. They’re not like words. They…they don’t get mixed up.’
'If only you could talk to girls in equations.’
There was a long silence, and then, eyes trained on the notch they’d created in the link, Wylan said, 'Just girls?’
Jesper restrained a grin. 'No, not just girls.

The first time the world saw Ray Barbee on a board we all knew that was how skateboarding should look: smooth, stylish, poetry in motion. Decades later it still makes our heart sing every time we see Ray push. Last night Transworld honored Ray with the Legend award & we can’t think of anyone more deserving. Congrats, buddy! Stoked you’re a part of our family. ( #FBF to Ray’s April, 1997 TWS interview.  Read it again on Chromeball)
