– Herman Hesse, from “Steppenwolf”, translated from the German by Basil Creighton
Aelin: *sacrifices herself and is finally ready for it to be over*
Aelin: *seals the wyrdgate once and for all*
Aelin: *Falls through the multiverse as an incorporeal essence, desperate to find her home and her mate*
Aelin: *Sees Rhysand*
Aelin: Fuck he’s hot!
I still can’t get over the hilarity of the fact that Vaughan was mentioned in EoS to be searching for Lorcan in the North and yet he somehow managed to COMPLETELY miss the 4-month world-ending battle happening in Terresan
And I assume he never got the memo that the kill order for Lorcan was rescinded but also never put much effort into it so I imagine him just. Wandering the north. Picking up snow-covered rocks like “Lorcan? You under there? Ah, too bad”. Making friends with the local birds and learning a lot about the natural foliage
Vaughan, freshly free of the blood oath, rolling up to Doranelle 6 months late with Starbucks: Did I miss anything?
OMG HONESTLY THO
friendly advice to not revolve your life around one person, one feeling, one place, one memory, one problem. the complexity of life and the diversity of the world is beautiful and you have the right to explore it. do not settle for less. you deserve better.
Rhys reading Kingdom of ash
Aelin: “I think the world would turn on their heads if you wore anything else, so burial black it is”
Rhys: *puts the book down*
Rhys: *stares at wall for straight 20 minutes*
Rhys: I came here to have a good time and I am honestly feeling so attacked right now
On their own.
Just a mood piece that came to mind when I thought of this common theme among these characters. Some by force, some by choice, others by both. I wanted to let the environments speak for the characters and really had fun with the transitions~
I have a few other KOA sketches I may release later, but this set gives me closure with my KOA hangover. Back to papercrafting!
It’s over finally. We’ve reached the end. We’ve cried and laughed and loved and lost with Aelin, with Manon and her Thirteen, with Dorian and Chaol and Elide and Lysandra. We’ve seen kingdoms and empires and magic and fire beyond our imagination with them. We’ve lived with them and this, this is my final tribute to Throne of Glass. To the books that saved me in the darkest hours of my life. To my safe place and to my asylum when I couldn’t face reality. To everything Sarah has done for us. To everything Erilea has been to us. To the little piece of fiction that will forever stay in our hearts, no matter what. To the series I will always come back to as my home, no matter where or how far I roam.
So here’s to the end of a beautiful era and to the beginning of a new one. A thank you, for everything that this series has done for me. I love you beyond what words can comprehend and you will stay with me.
To whatever end.
After Orynth was rebuilt, the western gate received a special renovation. The new heavy double iron doors were carved with a figure on each sheet.
One had a mountain lion standing on his back legs; and the other had the profile of a handsome, kind-faced Fae male, his hands up as if holding the door. Gold lined him and the lion like an aura.
It was since renamed as the Gate of the Lion.
My focus half remained on the High Lord whose hands and mouth and body had suddenly made me feel awake – burning. It just made me… alive. Made me feel as if I’d been asleep for a year, slumbering inside a glass coffin, and he had just shattered through it and shaken me to consciousness.

Finally finished! A project between commissions :) I even did a speed painting of this, so go check it out :) In the beginning youll see how I set up the scene. Its from a program called Daz Studio and I am absolutely obsessed with it. Expect more dynamic paintings in the future :) (once I finish this list of commissions).
Based off of course, the best Feyre and Rhysand out there, Barbara Palvin and Toni Mahfud.

I’d like to make a small contribution:
“What is necessary, after all, is only this: solitude, vast inner solitude. To walk inside yourself and meet no one for hours—that is what you must be able to attain.”
