The Hunger Games: So Let's Pray These Lights Never Leave Us, Love

"Elsewhere, being clever is a cause for celebration and pride. In Five it is nothing but dangerous.

No surprise, then, when Reaping Day rolls around and the anomaly is called for sacrifice.”

Oh hey I wrote a thing about Foxface :D Just an experiment really, playing with snapshots and an over-abundance of parentheses (parenthesi? parenthesises?)

~Till Death~
Seeing him like this is a shock.


After his coronation she’d left the country, unable to bear the sight of him any longer. They’d seen each other only rarely, but promised each time that when the Calling came, they would face it together - if they could not have each other, they could have this at least. 


Yet for all his vows he stands before her now, pale and gaunt, the taint crawling up his neck, and knows that had she not heard the rumours, he would have left without her. She doesn’t ask him why he kept it secret. She suspects it might be for the same reason she hasn’t told him about the way the Old Gods whisper in her dreams.

He pulls her close and sobs quietly into her hair. It seems unfair how it is only now, so close to death, that he finally allows her to touch him. So long has it been that she’s forgotten the feel of warmth at her back, or the roughness of his hands. She’s forgotten what it is to be loved, and it is so achingly bittersweet she wants to cry.

Reminded and inspired to draw by someone’s recent illustrations about their Warden and Zevran suffering something similar :)
dragonageconfessions:

Confession: I don’t understand why people say Fenris is shorter than F!Hawke. I’ve compared their heights many times and they are the nearly the same height. Not to mention that he has poor posture and stands with his back hunched forward.

I’m guilty of this mostly because I love the idea of the grumpy short elf warrior and the sarcastic tall human rogue. Contrast between couples is beautiful (also the elves are way shorter in DA:O and throughout most of mythology, as far as I’m aware, sooo…)

Hi there!

So, I’m currently broke and unemployed, though not yet in dire circumstances. I’m also losing my drawing mojo and feel it’s getting a bit stale, and so I was wondering…would anyone be interested in commissioning me at all? I’ll set up an official post soon, this is just to test the waters and figure out what you guys might like.

I’m not sure what to offer - portraits of characters, tattoo designs, mabari portraits? Any ideas? You’ve hopefully seen the sort of style I draw/paint in (if not, there’s a link to my art blog in my header - mcbaah.tumblr.com).

Any feedback would be awesome, please and thank you :)
