Busy, busy, with final preparations for the upcoming class. So teach. Much syllabus. Wow.

… every single time, I wonder whether any of my students-to-be are in fandom. Boy, would that be fun. And/or, super-awkward.

ETA: shouldn’t mention it, should I? *knocks on wood, frantically* :D

And, of course, Charles. I love what you’ve done with the birds, here, and I absolutely adore the choices you made for his different expressions & actions. Perfection!

Alas, she cannot seem to decide on a crown. My Queen … from most innocuous at the top, to most dangerous in her diamond form. Nya ha ha.

Love it! The layout, the colors, the blood, the river … and especially the torn page, implying what it does … *ominous music*

How does he do all that with his face??

Puppy Eyes: Activiated.

I particularly like how, with his coat and shirt, there are three different shades of blue in this gif. 
in other words: … MY HEART. ;____;

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JAMES MCAVOY ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE DONE!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Such strong. Many ice. Wow.

THIIIIIIIIGHS SB. THIIIIGHS

THIIIIIIIIGHS OMG Æ. YES PLS.

Back!

 … and staying up as long as possible! Must. Fight. Jet lag!

What better way to do that than by reblogging? Please see below for some artsies. And dwaroxx - do you have any idea of how difficult it was to shield your amazing, most recent picture from my fellow choir members? :D

Another great way to combat jet lag: stay up writing! For inspiration, I have on tap a lovely piece of music: Anais Mitchell & Jefferson Hamer’s version of Tam Lin.

(Click that little grey box (in dashboard) for the video, or click here.)

It’s based on the Child ballad. The lyrics Mitchell and Hamer wrote are the last on this page.

The plot’s an archaic business, true, but it has those Beauty & the Beast elements to it that I so much enjoy. I read an article elsewhere about their stripping the Fairy Queen verses from the ballad: her kidnapping and enchantment of Tam Lin, and the fact that the heroine breaks the evil spell. That decision makes sense, I suppose, but I regret the loss of the last words of the Fairy Queen (“Elphin Queen”) in variant D. Not that they would necessarily keep that one (in the other variants, she’s all “I shoulda turned him into a tree”), but this … I love.

O had I known at early morn
Tomlin would from me gone,
I would have taken out his heart of flesh
Put in a heart of stone.

(*cough* relevant, btw. *cough*)

And yet, their last verse (closer to another variant) is … very poignant.

And then he changed all in her arms
Into a naked man
She's wrapped him in her coat so warm
And she has brought him home.

Don’t you think? :D

This is lovely, clavelrojo. I have spent a long while peering at all the little details. I greatly enjoy depictions of Charles’ inner mind palace/temple, complete with the aviary - and here, it’s so cool how you’ve captured the small details: the veils, the books, the nightingale’s song.

Thank you so much for making this. Next time we get to Charles’ mind, I’ll be sure to put in some roses. :D

❤️❤️❤️

My favorite.

Yay for the ALS challenge.

Something tells me, though, that said challenge would not be as successful if it required action along these lines:
