So... did anybody already talk about the symbolism behind Stede actually getting the freedom - the ’retirement’ - from faking his own death, by leaving a ‘corpse disfigured beyond recognition’ in ofmd 1x10, that Blackbeard described to Izzy for himself in 1x04?

Bigbang art for ‘Booker’s Seven’ by pavlovee
After having some tumblr problems the last few days, I can finally link to pavlovees adventurous Mona Lisa heist story ‘Booker’s Seven’.
Link to AO3 Here
It was a really nice experience making art for her and I totally recommend you head on over to her story on ao3 right now to check it out.
Art is under the cut.
Title picture for Booker

So I’m currently researching horse types for a new tog drawing and I’ve just stumbled upon the ‘Shire Horse’ breed, which sounds quite fitting for Nicky (easy-going nature, former war horse now work horse). But in the physical description it also talks about it having a “long, arched neck; slightly Roman nose“ and I just can’t.

When you post a thematic series of pictures and are so glad to be finished, that you forget to add one of the signature elements of the series in the last picture... and when you see the error, you are way too scared to just change the original post because it’s already been out there for a few hours...

First Snow IV of IV, Joe and Nicky on cold hands.
Notes: This is it, the last one in the series. After this I promise to focus on my big bang project. Also, Joe, I love you, but drawing you has so far been my greatest challenge, because beards...
also close up of their faces for anybody interested

Illustration for
Brace for Impact by bioticbooty
BioticBooty manages to draw pictures with her words, making one stop and stare, regroup and go back to reread and redream. This is simply a wonderful little gem of an AU, imagining Shepard as an engineer, finding herself on board of the Normandy just as the reapers launch their attack on earth. It's magnificiently crafted and will keep you griping the edge of your seat long after the ride is over. So don't wait and Read it on AO3 or FFnet
Done for the Mass Effect Bigbang 2014

Adventures of (not anymore)kid!Kanji - Conclusion
When the fifth morning breaks, the curse is finally undone.
While three souls slept, the rest of the investigation team found the shadow sorcerer inside the tv world and broke their evil spell.
And now, happily ever after?
Nr. 5 of 5.
Note: It's done. And because it's always fun to do and I just couldn't decide on a favourite version, have a progression/dusk to morning lighting gif extra.
