Congratulations. You've stumbled upon the mental junk bin of a 29 year old ginger who - when she is not wearing her professional language nerd hat - dabbles in amateur photography, prose writing, bad poetry, stale jokes, obscure references, intense fangirling and long awkward silences.

    S.H.I.E.L.D.’s public relations department decides to take nice photos of the Avengers so that they can send them to the media whenever the team goes public. They somehow manage to convince Thor to put on normal clothes and get through the photoshoots pretty quickly.

    Except Tony wouldn’t stop preening and duck facing. They eventually gave up and used the “best” one. To this day, Tony still gets the stink eye from the head of PR.

    I also accept this headcanon

    Also, in case you missed it, Gabriel Garcia Marquez died this past week. It’s difficult for me to find words to encapsulate his writing style - fantastic and surreal seem woefully inadequate - but he found a way to make ordinary people and daily life vibrant and colorful and extraordinary. Rest well, sir.

    And now I want to go and write something.

Sabriel by Margot Wood

In the early 1990s, Garth Nix went to a flea market in Sydney, Australia and looked through a box of old, early 1900s photographs that were being sold for a dollar a piece. As he flipped through the photos he came across a photograph of a young woman in a military style coat wearing a belt made out of bells and holding a sword. He studied the photo, wondering who this mysterious woman was. He purchased the photo, took it home and promptly wrote the draft for his young adult high-fantasy novel, Sabriel. THIS DID NOT ACTUALLY HAPPEN. But what if it did? And that, my beautiful friends, is the idea behind this fauxto. I wanted to do something different for my Young Adults fauxto series. I’ve recently been doing character portraits and knew I wanted to do one for Sabriel, but to give it a twist, I wanted to take a fauxto of a real person that would serve as the inspiration for the fictional character. Does that make any sense? Basically, in my imagination, Garth Nix based Sabriel off a real person and I wanted to explore what that woman would look like and voila, you have the image before you.

(Please do not remove credit/description)

My friend Margot (The Real Fauxtographer) has an amazing series where she interprets YA novels into these wonderful, wonderful photos (see also, her Code Name Verity photo, and her photo for Shadow and Bone - amazing).
I had the privilege of sitting for her on her Sabriel photo. Personal bias aside, this is a pretty special photo to me because Sabriel is one of my absolute favorite books ever, and she’s a heroine near and dear to my heart.
When Margot first approached me about this portrait, I shared with her that a lot of readers may disagree with her interpretation because Sabriel is interpreted as white (I mean, it’s pretty canon). Her response -  “you’re pale, you have dark hair, you’re Sabriel” - while simple, is gratifying and validating to me. Not a lot of people would be flexible to the idea of having a POC pose as a traditionally white heroine, making this doubly special, and even more awesome.
View the rest of Margot’s wonderful fauxtos here, and give her a shout on Twitter, will you? She’s pretty funny.

i saw this and thought “omg that looks JUST LIKE reelbs” and then i saw this post and i’m so thrilled it really is you because this series kicks so much ass and this is a really really great interpretation

SABRIEL!

Oh wow, what a cool idea

    So I’ve been catching up on my movies over the past few days so that I can be prepared for all of the sequels that are coming out over the next few months. Many of them are movies that I’ve wanted to see but just haven’t for whatever reason. Well, The Amazing Spider-Man gave me many feels that I knew would come up but somehow I failed to prepare for. I still liked it. And How to Train Your Dragon is just cute. I’ve always been a fan of good creature design (which is why I love Guillermo del Toro films) and the dragons here were just too cool. I can also see now all of the feline influences that went into animating Toothless and so much of it just made me giggle. Also, feels.

    That said, I don’t think anything can adequately prepare me for Disco X-Men or Guardians of the Galaxy. So many good-looking geeky films coming out this summer! I can’t wait. For the movies, that is. The fact that I want summer to hurry up and get here goes without saying.
