When Fan Art is Life Changing Part 2

Sometimes I just need to fangirl, badly. You can see it in the predecessor of this post (When fan art is life changing part 1) or in my many posts sobbing about Fanfic so amazing I literally can’t not share it.

So this is another one of those moments.

Needless to say I am UNWELL.

Recently a there have been a few pieces of fan art that just make me a puddle (spoilers for ACOTAR ahead *duh duh duh*). Now please excuse the rest of this post where I display the true level of Fangirl Trash that I am.

And yes…I have this sticker on my laptop. No shame.

The first are all by Coralie Jubénot who you can find on tumblr at http://cocotingo.tumblr.com/tagged/my+art or on twitter as @Merwild. She has done some absolutely STUNNING ACOTAR and TOG art. There are so many amazing ones I could share, so it was difficult to narrow it down to a few favorites. Her depiction of Feyre and her sisters are my favorites and her drawing of Rhys are beautiful.

This first one is her drawing of all 3 Archeron sisters and I think it’s stunning and that she captured the 3 of them so well.

2 other favorites are these photos of Feyre in night court attire and of course Starfall. Just looking at them so happy and holding each other makes me want to cry and collapse to the floor. BTW I did not include the PG-13/R/M drawings of some certain scenes from ACOMAF. One involving a certain high lords hands in a chilly inn and the other involving lots and lots of paint (following delicious meal of soup, if you know what I mean…)

Now the exciting thing is that she has just stared reading the Throne of Glass series (she’s only on Crown of Midnight so I’m sure we’ll have some special characters from Heir of fire soon). But for now her drawing of Celaena is my favorite and her depiction of Chaol is amazing. She’s also done head shot of Nehemia and Dorian, both amazing. (Left to Right: Celaena, Dorian, Chaol, Nehemia)

BUT it does not end there. She also has a gorgeous piece of Chaol fetching Celaena from Endovier and it is stunning. He looks like a captain of the guard and she looks like she was just pulled from a mine.

GAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH. I love it.

Now I know I may be spiraling, but unfortunately I’m not done there. Oh no. I’m fully aboard the crazy train.

As you may know, I recently finished Crooked Kingdom and so naturally I had to pin all the new Six of Crows art to my pinterest board and came across this beauty from Fictograph.

I’m not exactly sure why, but this is my favorite Kaz Inej art I’ve come across. Maybe it’s the fact that they’re out feeding the crows, but I think it’s beautiful.

Again. I am unwell.

Rise Elorcan!

**This post contains spoilers for Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas**

So anyone else who recently finished Empire of Storms is probably having similar feels over the rise of Elorcan. And how can you not? They were adorable. She was brave and smart and it impressed him. And he was strong and protective and it won her heart. So now the quality Elorcan fics are starting to come to light, and since I do little spotlights on my absolute OG Nessian fics (thank you StarsWhoListen they’re fabulous) I thought I’d spotlight 2 little Elorcan fan fics that give all the feels.

So check out “The Knife Thrower’s Revenge” by myfireheart and “On the Deck Somewhere” by StarsWhoListen

New Laptop Stickers!

It’s out with the old and in with the new! I love laptop stickers and I loved my old case, but it was cracked, dirty and old so it was time to replace it. Now unfortunately that meant losing some old stickers that were not the reusable sort, but it also meant spending lots of time on Red Bubble picking out fabulous new stickers! And this time I went for full fandom immersion: 2 from ACOMAF , 2 for Throne of Glass, 2 for The 100, 1 old Game of Thrones, 1 LoTR, 1 Sherlock, 1 Outlander, and 2 about reading and one that literally labels me as “fangirl trash”.  There are a few non nerdy ones too. A dunkin donuts cup (of course), A “massachusetts made” sticker (obvi) and my good old Boston Strong sticker, plus one for my college and one that says “Mutts Rule”.  I’d say I’m pretty happy every time I look at it now. But I had so many great new stickers that the hardest part was painstakingly pouring over the possible layouts to fit as many as possible.

It was also very hard for me to find a nice green case. I wanted a darker, opaque hunter green case but apparently those don’t exist. The first one I ordered was supposed to be mint green but it was literally the same teal blue I had before so I went with a super neon green one instead. It’s not exactly what  wanted but I like it.

After!

I’m just so happy with it!
