Somewhere I read that reading stories before going to bed at night is always a good habit, maybe for nice sleep or to have a good dream. And here fantasy genre fits perfectly at sleepy time.
Somebody said that Fantasy and Adventure genes are match made in heaven, and here Neil Gaiman's Stardust comes true[[MORE]] when Tristran crosses wall for promise he made to Victoria. World-building, character arc and morals everything amazing.
The feeling of the climax was most important, actually I forgot that Dunstan had a lovely night with cat-like ear women and her conditions when she will be freed from that silver chain and why Daisy was watching little differently when Tristran decided to go beyond the wall. I thought that this story too is getting boring as reaching towards the end but when read the climax it was like seriously something terrible had happened here or I was reading in sleepy-mode. I was when that cat-eared faerie woman introduces herself to the evil witch that she is the only daughter of the lord of Stormland and as the only conditions which will free her from evil witch were about to happen, it was like that evil witch had doomed herself by kidnapping the unknown child of Lord a long years back. It was awesome.
Overall fairy story is about love. It shows that nothing is more important than love of forgiveness, as when Tristran tell Victoria to marry Robert as they both love each other and also when Lady Una says Tristan to take the throne of Stormland.
Finally, I had read a beautiful ending of fantasy before I went to my terrible dreams.
Ditchwater Sal: I shall not seek the star, Your Dark Majesty. I swear.
Lamia: Seek all you wish! You shall not see the star, touch it, smell or hear it. You will not perceive her even if she stands before you. If you watch Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo Plus Juliet, you will only see a sub-par Romeo. Homeland does not exist for you.
So Nevaeh and Neptune are both going to be on their way in the next week so I decided since it’s been about two months since the last lil family photo, I would do another picture just for posterity~ I love every single one of these sweet kids so much and I am excited for the new family members that will eventually be joining us!
Okay so I have insomnia and decided to check on these three neglected kids and their faceups.
So I like the coloring I have so far for Prim’s blushing but somewhere in the last year, you can see her lip chipped so I’m not sure if that means I should start over or if I can just spray MSC and go over it again. We will see!
I tested out some colors on Yvaine and the tooth seems good enough to have kept this time! I don’t know how I feel about this because this wasn’t exactly what I had in mind but also kind of exactly what I had in mind just not executed perfectly! So I’m open to wiping her and trying again but I might keep it for a little while and keep trying.
Keilani I have decided to wipe because Im pretty unhappy with how she is coming out! So this will be the last picture of her like this and I will restart her faceup soon!
Very educational early morning faceup testing! Cool!
This is my “I could’ve sworn I followed you but tumblr is a bastard” apology!!
Listen, listen... I know tumblr is erratic and sometimes you have to undo its errors. But also, it's important that everyone should follow the people they want, and be comfortable if they unfollow someone too (temporarily or permanently).
We all have our individual quirks. There was a time I was distressed to look at any black and white dogs, for example; it hurt too much to miss my Tessa.
Nobody needs to justify why you are or aren't following someone ❤️ I'm here trying to shine a little bright spot in my day and everyone else's. If, for some reason, my posts aren't pleasant for someone, they could absolutely block me, and feel good about it. We all have our reasons for what we feel. It doesn't have to make sense, either. It's all good.
"You know when I said I knew little about love? That wasn't true. I know a lot about love. I've seen it, centuries and centuries of it, and it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars. Pain, lies, hate... It made me want to turn away and never look down again. But when I see the way that mankind loves... You could search to the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know that it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and strangely easy to mistake for loathing, and... What I'm trying to say, Tristan is... I think I love you."
is gwyn a different spaniel breed than tristan and yvaine?? she looks so much longer than tris!! and she’s still a puppy!!
English cocker spaniels are different from American cocker spaniels, yes! Tristan is an extreme version of an American cocker spaniel; he was bred for showing. In full coat, Tristan would look like a walking Swiffer. Yvaine was a BYB American cocker; her coat wasn't quite so dense, but she was still the smush-mouth Swiffer type.
Gwyn is at the other end of the cocker extremes. She's already built longer and narrower because she is an English cocker, but she's also "field-bred," a working cocker spaniel, and they have less coat than a show English cocker. Merlin was almost certainly an English cocker, but I don't know anything else about his background.
Tris and Gwyn were both weighed today. Gwyn weighs 21.2 lb and Tristan weighs 24.4 lb.
Taking a moment to reflect on departed friends, much beloved and desperately missed.
With love to @konmari-dogs for the Merlin sculpture (I have tried and tried but cannot get a decent photo of this lovely thing), and to @fragile-milkbones for the Yvaine portrait (art by Brittany Ragland @copper_ruby on social media). And appreciation to https://www.etsy.com/shop/InAGlaze for the urns.
A handful of blogs make dogblr a significantly richer, kinder, and more fulfilling place - @doomspaniels, and by extension, the adventures of Yvaine, are one of them. Her joy and love for you, the world, and all of us was very clear, and I will miss her little light greatly. I am grateful for all your bonus time together, and I am so sorry for your loss. The world is a glorious place to be a dog, especially when you’re the best of the best.
@doomspaniels let their beloved Yvaine free today, and I’m going to miss seeing that little ball of sunshine grace my dash and brighten my day. She truly was an amazing little lady, and I hope she is able to rest well. The stars became a bit brighter today
