Day 15 - Helmet
[Baz's shirt has] got brown and blue stripes, but when you get close, you see that the blue stripes are flowers.

So yeah here’s a fixed one because I Needed To Fix It™️

Penny: The first time Simon saw Cheerios he yelled 'Oh look! Bagel seeds!!'...In front of everyone
Baz, with a smile and a distant look in his eyes: Ah, yes, the good old days...

Inktober - Day 16 - Compass
"Ungh." Baz is struggling with the duffel now, scrabbling to get the strap off from around his neck. The bag looks like it's trying to pin him to the floor. ...
"I've got it," Simon says, grabbing the strap from behind. "It's trying to get--" Baz drops to his knees. ...
The bag thumps to the floor, and the strap sags enough for Baz to slip free. We all stare at it.
"The basement!" Shepard says.
– Any Way The Wind Blows, Chapter 66, Rainbow Rowell
I love this scene where they break into the cult headquarters. Baz is in a three piece suit with a shiny purple tie. Shep and Penny are holding hands. And in my head canon Penny is feeling confident in her pretty yellow sundress. An expensive duffel which held Baz's whole shoe collection is now half-choking him as it guides them to Pippa.

Day 19 - Loop
The neighbours are tired of my music again. They've come to the door this time. Well, they can push right off... They think they're tired of this song? Once I figure out the magic, I'm going to loop the same two lines again and again:
"You're in my blood, you're my holy wine. You taste so bitter and so sweet."

Di’s Six Sentence Sunday
Thank you for tagging me @you-remind-me-of-the-babe and @urban-sith 💙💙💙
Here’s a snippet from chapter 4 of Kickstart My Heart - rival baristas to lovers - my COBB fic and also a fill for @carryonprompts.
Don't get me wrong. It's hipster ridiculous, but it looks good on him. And don't get me started on how much I apparently enjoy seeing Baz in those jeans. Were they specially made to fit him this perfectly or was there magic in play?
Well, now he’ll think I’m a barbarian who sings out loud at work. So instead of smiling at him and trying to get on a better foot than last night, I scowl instead.
“What are you doing here?” It unintentionally comes out almost like an accusation.
Oh no. That didn’t go well at all.

Baz takes a step back, into the living room. His hand is on the door. And he's looking at me the way he did in my flat last night, like I've got a knife in his heart, and I'm holding it there.
Any way the wind blows. Rainbow Rowell

Carry On Summary: Simon: Baz' eyes are so pretty I can't even and his hair is so soft. How dare he? This is definetly a plot.... Yeah, this is it. He is plotting and we are enemies. He looks perfectly beautiful just to upset me...

Hello! Here's another sequential based on the Simon Snow trilogy books by @rainbowrowell. This one is a scene from Wayward Son in Chapter 21 when Simon and Baz are messing around with foam swords at a renaissance fair during their trip to America.
Thanks to the patient Snowbaz fans who leave very kind comments on my previous Simon Snow fanart, hope you enjoy this one!

SPOILER ALERT: #AWTWB
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.
