in Dragon Slippers, Creel’s whole thing that puts her in demand with customers and an asset to the dress shop is that her embroidery is inspired by stained glass, with color blocks and pictoral scenes, rather than more typical borders and small motifs. but like
filling in an area takes more thread than bordering it- kind of obvious, but in a pre-industrial society that’s gonna add up quick. It also takes more time. Just for sheer skill + materials + time, the dresses she makes should be notably expensive even among the category of court/ballgowns.
Plus she’s, y’know. Good at it. And I feel the books do not properly hammer home??? That “giving her her own dress shop” at the end of the first book should by all rights launch her to fabulous wealth.The implication is that if not for the whole “falling in love with and marrying a prince” thing she’d be solidly middle to upper middle class. But based on demand, clientele, and the amount of labor that goes into her work, girl should be richer than Croesus within 5 years.
I used to dislike multi-shippers because most of the times I felt shipping one person with multiple people undermines the seriousness of a ship, but my gosh did a certain broccoli boy Detroit smashed me in the face with my own opinion.
Even if you are one of these types of people... it doesn’t make you a bad person... You do have the ability to change. But you have to be the one to do it. Because your loved ones are 100% incapable of solving your problems for you.
Express the willingness to change. Put in the effort to change.
My morbid curiosity compels me, I have to ask… who is Excalibur
This was a very difficult question that I really had to think about for a while... My first idea was to have it be Swindle but somehow that really dint appeal to me so I browsed my copy of The Allspark Almanac and found the Decepticon STRETCH. This guy is actually Powell's car that turned into a Transformers via an Allspark fragment that he obtained
"It seemed to think it was some kind of high-societal dandy, deserving all of the finer things in life"
... and this quote alone from Powell got me convinced he's fit the role because if you guys dont know Excalibur is annoying like really annoying 😂😂😂
i just installed Shinigami Eyes, which is a browser extension that shows you if webpages/users are transphobic or anti-LGBT+ (shown in red) or are trans-friendly (shown in green), and most mcyt show up as normal (black, no information either way), except
i grew up with my mom constantly telling me she was going to give me away and that she was going to die one day and leave us and now everyone around me confused on why i seemingly can’t be attached to people
I realised you can set notification on for when a particular blog posts on mobile... Since I'm only going to be posting Fest Related stuff for the month (barring this post), you can set 'Notification On' for my blog so you never miss another update from all india ba- oops sorry, Desi LGBT Fest :)
Yet another mood board/aesthetic for my Jurassic Park/World oc, Dr. Emily Grant. This one has her face claim, Rebecca Ferguson, in it this time. Emily stars in my fanfiction.net story, Don't Take Peace for Granted.
imagine if sweatin’ to the goldies took place post-s15, because Jay saw Clutch had the lamp. Instead of wanting to go to the afterparty, he wanted to go back to the monestary like Zane did, but unlike Zane it wasn’t because he was tired, though i don’t doubt he was
It was because he had to tell Nya about this, she was the only person who remembers, the only person who could understand, and in his whirlwind of panic over seeing the lamp he forgot about his grief for her, for a while
the two rushed back to the monestary, Jay almost dragging Zane behind him, the appetisers forgotten, only for him to remember as he walked into her old room, now a storage room, that she truly wasn’t there
knowing that the bahak system would have been destroyed by the reapers anyway along with the rest of the galaxy but also having the blood of over 350,000 lives on her hand is a very upsetting and complicated situation and jane is. Quiet for a few days after the events of the arrival mission.
