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.

BFF Book Tag

So I was tagged by Jess @ StarsWhoListen to do this tag and of course she is my actual real life BFF so I’m not surprised, so this is the BFF Book Tag:

Setting the Example: A pair/ group of book BFFs that you love | Ruby, Liam, Chubs & Zu

Screen Shot 2016-09-22 at 6.27.25 PM.pngHow could you not want to a part of their little family in the Darkest Minds? Not only are they the kind of friends you consider family, but they just have so many jokes and witty banter that keeps them all simile even though they’re in a horrible situation.

 

Childhood Bestie: Book character you would have liked to grow up with | Percy Jackson

27c36927e150c50f27f4f51c62d219ffHow could you not want to grow up with Percy? Sure his home life with his stepdad was not ideal, but imagine going on quests and saving the world with him and just getting to be at Camp Halfblood. Plus I appreciate the fact that he is the sassiest demigod out there and know we would get along great.

 

Frenemy: Which book character would bring out your competitive side | Manon Blackbeak 

77426f8a63373dc597d89b9c9e339ac7.jpg

Now don’t get me wrong I love Manon but you have to admit she is the perfect frenemy. And sometime you just need that friend who is going to taunt you until you finally take action and I feel like Manon would not be shy about brining out my competitive side.

 

 

Fashion Guru: Who would be the bestie whose closet you’d want to raid or go on a shopping spree with | Isabelle Lightwood

isabelle-lightwood-shadowhunters-the-mortal-instruments-cassandra-clare-favim-com-4171901How can you not love Isabelle Lightwood from the Mortal Instruments Series? Not only is she a strong kick ass female but she also always looks good. She does not care what anyone else thinks of her outfits and the girl’s got style so I’d love to have her help me with anything appearance related.

 

 

Bad Influence: Character you would commit a small act of rebellion with | Kaz Brekker

kaz_brekkerNot just Kaz but the whole Six of Crows crew would be ideal group to commit any crime with. I mean with how skilled they all are there’s a 99% we’d get away with it PLUS can you think of a more fun group of people to hang out with? Their dynamic is hilarious since none of them trust each other and all they do is bicker because they’re all secretly in love with each other.

 

Blood Brothers: Which character would you want to be your surrogate big brother/sister | Nesta Archeron

tumblr_odtooygRJg1uv3gwvo2_1280.png

Obviously Nesta from ACOMAF. I am borderline obsessed with her and all I want is a Nesta Cassian spin off series. Now as sisters,  we would fight like dogs and cats because we’re too similar but I know she would tell someone off for me in a heart beat and be a fierce protector if I needed it (even knee an immortal fae warrior in the balls if I needed her too)

 

 

Mother Hen: Which character would you want to be by your side when you’re having a bad day | Levi

e79a27ed8c17cf32b2c7ad3346740458

Sorry Jess but how can I not steal your answer. There is literally no character sweeter and more likely to cheer someone up than Levi from Fangirl. He is so unbelievably positive, plus he would bring me free coffee which would immediately make my day better.

 

 

The Counsellor: Which character would you go to for relationship advice or confide a secret to | Tessa Gray

the_infernal_devices__tessa_gray_by_caroline1233-d7u97k9.jpgI feel like Tessa from the Infernal Devices series would give great relationship advice. After all, she’s been around for a long time, plus had some tricky choices in her own relationships but it all ended up working out for her (thank you Cassandra Clare for happy endings). Plus she’s super smart so no matter what I think she’d be good at giving advice in general.

 

 

More than Friends: Who would be your book boyfriend/girlfriend | Cassian

195398adf9e3bc0e211f7a39ac973b25Ok so this question is hard, because in my mind I have A LOT of book boyfriends, BUT as ACOMAF is still first and foremost all I think about during the course of the day, my little baby bat Cassian would obviously be my BF since the “sarcastic asshole, who is super protective of his family” is my “type” (mostly the sarcastic asshole part *looking at you John Murphy*) Also there is a shockingly small amount of Cassian fan art so enjoy this beautiful man SJM pinned as “cassian”
