Howdy! I hate when awesome people feel down so just popping in to tell you that you are awesome (don't ever forget that, write it down or something, idc 😝), and that my favourite moment is the one where Dutch adds Arthur to his drawing of him. That melted my little, cold, black heart 💖
I got a lil gift too, heh
Bye bye 🖤
I got this right before I went to bed last night, and I would be a liar if I didn’t say it made me tear up a little bit. This is legitimately so sweet, thank you so much 🥺🥺🥺
I spent the weekend out in the countryside taking it easy and doing some hobbies I enjoy, so that certainly helped! Also, I did a little planning and writing for some future work here, which I currently look forward to finishing!!! I ain’t going anywhere anytime soon, I can assure you that 😁
Nonetheless, YOU melted MY heart with your lovely words. I do believe there is a genuinely romantic and tender side to Dutch, and it doesn’t get enough attention! Sometimes, I feel guilty about the way I sexualize him a lot because he is so so sooooo much more than that. Sure, that can be fun and all, but it’s those softer moments that I love best (by far). It makes me happy to hear that one of them is what stands out to you!! ❤️🖤
Also, I have to give credit to @arthur-boah again because I cannot possibly thank her enough for bringing one of those journal drawings to life!!! 💜💜💜
Lastly, YOU ARE AWESOME for such a splendid message. I have a special folder where I keep all the nice things people send for when I need cheering up 🥰 I think the picture you shared will serve as a good reminder for me!!!
(PS - have one for yourself in return!)
🥭 KEEP THE FAITH 🥭

I remember really liking the idea of making this render, but trying to get the lighting to work well was a much more difficult task than anticipated. ..and the posing to try and make it look like we’re holding hands. A lot of it was tricky, really. Hopefully it’s still alright, though ^-^
Reblogs would be appreciated, but are by no means required! There is also another picture under the readmore, if you’re curious~
Here is a close-up of the above picture, just so you can see the expressions a bit better:
(Fun fact, the very centre of the full render is where Luna and Adri are holding hands.
..Please ignore the fact that Luna’s hair is clipping through the ground.)

your heart, as it was then, will be on fire Snippet
“Monster blood in my veins, Archeron, didn’t you say it? If I lose sight, if I lose my way, if I ever hurt you- promise me you’ll bury that knife in my chest.”
“Are you planning,” Nesta hissed, acid over the tempo of her heart, “On having some kind of break down, because”-
Eris laughed, as falsely hollow as his eyes. “On the contrary, I want forever. I want what I told you I wanted- this life a dance that never ends, a match by my side, not temperance or balance or softness. I want to run beneath the moon with you, and know the death of the year is coming. I want to be in step. I want an eternity so long and tangled and difficult I never grow cruel in boredom or see my father’s face in the mirror.”
No snarl in the words, no growl of faery power- the more he felt, the truer Eris spoke, the quieter he became, whispered words burning in the air.
Nesta tipped her head back, and looked full on the Lord of Autumn. “When you told me that, it was a marriage proposal.”
His mouth twisted, a flash of white. “Surely you know.”
Nesta knew. Nesta knew it the second he’d run, run out of a forest at his youngest brother’s behest. When he’d healed Emerie’s wings. When he’d painted her face in Beron’s blood and stood unflinching as she called monsters of legend from beneath the ground, out into the sky.
“No,” Nesta lied, light, lovely, “Tell me.”
He swallowed, a true, unhidden tell. “You must know. It could only be by your hand. Only you, were I lost. You, who would know truly. You- who- Nesta Archeron, it must be you, because that heart you wouldn’t hesitate to carve out bloody is already yours.”

This may just be me projecting, but one of the things I noticed in the latest chapter was how it feels like Taichi has influenced Chihaya’s etiquette as a player and in general her increased cognizance of the people around her. And obviously, this is something we’ve seen start to manifest in her since he left the club, and she had to think hard on what kind of leader he was, how he encouraged the underclassmen, how he shaped the flow of a game, etc. But it’s also something that stuck out to me in what Chihaya said to Arata when she met him before the fourth match began, and she asked him if he was okay, only to go back on the words and say she doesn’t like it when she’s asked that. I feel like that’s something she may really have become aware of since Taichi left the club and she began to realize just how much had gone unnoticed before her eyes, because she thought she and Taichi were “okay”.
