Below is an alternative, but I prefer the one above. (Instrumental)
Song used: I’ve Got A Feeling I’m Falling
After The War: Chapter III (Come Taste The Stars), Levi Segment III
Levi found Mikasa with her lips parted away, and her hands involuntarily tapping small beats at the table. It was true— the music was good, indeed relaxing, and perky.
So this is jazz...
Then from the back of the stage, appeared a man wearing a bowler and a bowtie. He took noticed how the man grabbed the microphone confidently, then started singing as the man's body grooved to the tempo of the music.
Oh, honey, oh honey, I never felt this way
Romantically I'm up in the air
"So this is Jazz!" Mikasa shouted while obviously enjoying the enticing music.
Levi nodded, as he let his foot tapped along the beat of the infesting sound of Jazz.
It's funny, so funny me taking it this way
Don't know if I should
He silently watched how the crowd were all smiles. The music was undeniably good, and luckily for him, the singer didn't look like some stoned guy singing from the underground. He took note of what the singer was singing.
But gee, it feels good
I'm flying high but I've got a feeling I'm falling
"You good?" He asked Mikasa even if he already knew the answer.
Falling for nobody else but you
She turned to look at him, with her eyes dazzling like stars she described at the taste of her Champagne. "I'm more than good, Levi!"
You caught my eye
Cause I've got a feeling I'm falling
He nodded as he encouraged her to enjoy the moment. The bar was cozy, the moment was good, the music was delicate, and maybe like heaven in one good room. It was a rare moment in which he could publicly see Mikasa enjoying for the first time, and it felt so ethereal that he wanted to be selfish once in a while. He could see her smiling at him, sipping her second glass of Champagne like some sophisticated woman he read on the books he found at Hange's messy shelf.
Falling for nobody else but you
It was enough for him. He was feeling spontaneous as he wished for the fleeting moment not to end.
End of Segment

May Photo Challenge: Book Series - Apolline
I’ve got a bunch of OCs, so I’ll probably do several, but Apolline’s is the first one I was inspired to do.
Apolline Kincaid is growing up in 1920s Louisiana. When Papa and Maman have to travel to help her older brother out of trouble, Apolline is sent to stay with Grand'Mere and Oncle Edouard in New Orleans’ French Quarter - right in the heart of the arts community.
Life is vibrant in the house on Royal Street, and Apolline adores her grandmother and uncle, but Oncle Edouard has a secret, and needs help to make things right. She decides to hold a benefit concert, but how can she plan everything without telling Grand’Mere? And will her brother, Laurent, be okay?
Extras below the break
I have been working on the character for awhile, and had a pretty good idea for the dress I wanted her to have, but only recently put it together. I tried to make it in a similar style to images I found of girls’ dresses from the 1920s. I didn’t have time to make her a proper cloche for the photo shoot, so I improvised.
Bonus dress pictures!
