On the worst days, on the even worse nights, I used to think about all the bad things that have happened to Simon-just the ones I know about. And then I’d wonder about all the terrible things that have happened to him that I don’t know about. Twenty years of bad things. How long would it take for those painful memories to die back? Or, at least, to wither?

I spent way too long on this, mostly because I have been desperately trying to learn (and relearn) illustration techniques and was using this piece as practice. I think I repainted this at least 8 times before I said ‘ok, let it go’. Ive never rendered a full illustration on my iPad before, and it was really addicting to try out different brushes, explore styles, play with lighting and effects.
Since going to Megacon recently, I realized how much I really missed drawing characters. I used to all the time, it’s what got me into art. I want to be able to draw the characters that I love, and create my own again, but I don’t really know how to anymore. I don’t know what my style even is… but I want to try. It lit a little fire in me. I’ll learn.
☀️I’m officially a sucker for all things Simon Snow. What a funny, romantic, sad and tender series. I read these during a transitional time of my life, and they mean a lot to me. They also got me into reading again. Thanks @rainbowrowell for giving us a wonderful world of nontoxic vampires, supportive relationships and realistic (magical) rosebud boys.

unpopular opinion: sometimes... fandom isn't that important. sometimes fandom isn't "that deep" to someone. sometimes people don't interact within the fandom and like to watch from afar. sometimes people just want to look at cool art or read cool fanfics, and that's it.
let's normalize fandom being a hobby or an interest and not a lifestyle. normalize taking a step back, taking time off and disconnecting from fandom without feeling bad. it's okay and healthy to prioritize yourself over media instead of consuming it 24/7. it's okay to set boundaries and enjoy something the way you need.

I could wax poetic about how much I adore Roo for like…a long time. Not only are they an incredible writer, wickedly funny, and a talented artist, but I feel very fortunate to have gotten to know them as a person and friend 🖤
Their fic, Misadventures in Couple’s Therapy, is one of my ALL TIME FAVES EVER and never fails to absolutely murder me- so I had to illustrate one of my favorite moments!

Now don’t get me wrong, I love sweet whisperhands Simon too, but also I really appreciate bitey Simon? I know it’s not just me.
This is a sketch I from my new sketchbook that I thought would be fun to slap some color on and play with brushes. I just started painting on my iPad, it’s a lot of fun! I haven’t drawn anything like this in like, ten years? Jeez. So I’m trying to relearn drawing people and poses and etc, at the same time as procreate... It’s hard! But I’ve been practicing drawing with these two, so it hasn’t been unpleasant.

Is this, is this, is this what people do? Is this what he wants? Is this what I’m allowed to take?
- Simon, Any Way the Wind Blows by @rainbowrowell
This scene was written so beautifully, I couldn’t follow through on my original plan to release art in order. Two things stuck out to me in the way Rainbow wrote this milestone of intimacy for Simon and Baz: 1) The way Baz uses verbal cues to keep Simon present and in the moment (when earlier, he’d been succumbing to panic attacks any time they were about to be physically intimate), and 2) the way this love scene was as passionate and loving as any other love scene regardless of their still being dressed (which pleased me greatly as a gray-ace person). I just thought it was so mindfully executed given the characters and the audience, and I hope those of you who read it agree.

I have a very specific image in my head of what Simon and Baz’s dorm looks like and it’s not logical but it’s also not changing
