I completely remade my Juvia Lockser cosplay for MAGfest 2017! Many hours, a lot of pain and some of my sanity went into completing her in time~ Here are some pictures taken by the amazing @caylink-cosplay!!
hello! i just found your blog and your writing is so awesome <333 how about a prompt: fenhawke + "i love your hugs"?
(Thank you friend!! And thank you for the prompt! ❤)
The fact Fenris is so affectionate doesn’t surprise Hawke so much as
it occasionally catches them unawares. He moves with purpose in all
he does, from combat to card games. Matters of the heart, as well,
are under the same treatment.
He kisses like a hurricane,
grabbing for Hawke’s face or coat and dragging them in in a flash. He’s never what would qualify as rough but still always
carries such an intensity it leaves Hawke dazed and winded when they
Hugging is even more involved.
Fenris is strong,
Hawke does not doubt this, but the elf’s ability to pick them up at a
moment’s notice never truly ceases to surprise them. Not matter their
changing build or clothing Fenris never seems to pause.
They’re only half expecting Fenris to be there; he
comes and goes as he pleases these days. Often, as is no exception
tonight, they’ll find him waiting in the library when they return
from a trip without him.
Fenris is across the room before
Hawke can fully register his presence. He ducks slightly, arms
looping around Hawke’s thighs just under their behind, and pulls
their feet out from under them and hefts them up into his arms in one
motion. Hawke laughs, grabbing his shoulders to balance, and Fenris
shifts to hook their legs around his hips. When they get a proper
look at his face Hawke finds him smiling like a fool. Lovesick,
Hawke slides their arms
down, draping them off his shoulders so they can press their cheek to
Fenris’, and sighs fondly.
“Maker, I love your
Fenris chuckles, swaying slightly on his feet,
and moves one hand to rub his knuckles against Hawke’s back. They
melt further into his arms, nearly limp, and hum contently.
day?” he asks and starts back for where he’s been nested in a chair
in the library.
“Didn’t feel like it
till now.” they reply lazily, breath tickling Fenris’ ear, “But
if you want to just carry me around for the rest of the evening I’m
not about to stop you.”
“That could be arranged.” Fenris
Fenris pauses a moment to let Hawke kick off
their boots, metal and leather ungracefully piling on the floor next
to the fireplace, before he takes a seat again—Hawke still stuck to
him and comfortably piling into his lap. It takes a moment to get
comfortable even in the over-sized chair but eventually Hawke ends up
draped across Fenris’ lap on their back like the human mabari they
are, head nestled against his shoulder as he flicks his book open
“Where in the world do you keep all that muscle,
anyway?” they ask, reaching out to poke at Fenris’ arm—the one they’re not
putting to sleep with their head.
Fenris smiles faintly, eyes
still on his book, and says, “It took practice to be able to handle
things like you.”
“I am a handful.” Hawke replies
Fenris cuts his eyes at them, smile widening
slightly, and says, “Well, it’s lucky for you I have two
Hawke just laughs and throws an arm around Fenris’
neck, pulling themselves closer to press their lips to his cheek, his
jaw, his ear—until he’s given up on pretending to still be reading
entirely and swats at them with the closed novel.

laughter when Hawke plants another kiss on the shell of his

murmurs against his skin, lips pressed to Fenris’ cheek, “I’m going
to go out on a limb and say you’d never toss me anywhere that’d
hurt—you’re not that cruel and I’ve had a long day.”
just swats at them again and chuckles. “Continue testing your
luck.” he replies, “You’ll find out how cruel I can be.”
do believe I’m well versed in how cruel you can be.”
nuzzles at Fenris’ ear again as they say this and he laughs—giggles,
more like—and tries, in vain, to lean away from Hawke’s face. This
only encourages them, as always.
“I am nothing but kind to

his skin, “your capacity for cruelty is quite
Fenris can’t argue with this. Instead, he
simply shifts to cup his hand to Hawke’s cheek and presses his lips
to theirs. ’Not a cruel bone in you!’ he can hear Hawke saying
already. But, at least for the moment, they’re pleasantly distracted.
Atletico Madrid v RM, 19.11.2016 | Sergio on the bench [x]: Since this is the last time that they will ever play in the Vicente Calderón, Sergio tries to help things along by discreetly commencing minor demolition activities… #JustSerhioRamosyThings
I bulked until about May and have been on a slow going cut ever since! I put on a nice amount of muscle and am at a good point to maintain.
My main lifts didn’t go up in raw numbers all that much BUT I switched programs to one that periodized through higher volume/reps with strength. So I’ve really been able to work on my lifts in the higher rep range. In addition, I really focused on more accessory work to help with my lifts and build my physique.
2014 –> 2015
Deadlift: 210 x 3 –> 230 x 1 (reps record is 205 x 8) Squat: 185 x 2 –> 210 x 3 (reps record is 185 x 8) Bench: 115 x 3 –> 125 x 3 (reps record is 115 x 8) OHP: 85 x 3 –> 85 x 3 (my worst lift lol)
Perhaps the best growth of all, that can’t be pictured, is my academic growth. I’ve really been able to bring up my GPA (and make Dean’s List for the first time), and solidify my career goals. I’m excited to see where 2016 will bring me!
