Jess, Melbourne, 20's. Things I like may be found here (pretty pictures, quotes, recipes, occasional demented fangirlism).
Also occasional liveblogs of books by a completely amazing bastard called Dorothy Dunnett.

Amazing Illustrations by Artist Chiara Bautista

on facebook

Chiara Butista aka MILK is an enigmatic artist from Tucson, Arizona. Her work is insanely detailed and appears to be riddled with symbolism. Many of her subjects, which sport antlers or tentacles, are captured in chaotic, angst-ridden moments which are balanced perfectly by femininely decorated backgrounds and cartoonish animal friends. You could scour these images for hours and still find new details every time you revisit them. His work is rich with symbolism inspired cephalopods, falling planes, deer, piercing arrows, wounds,  teddy bears and drugs which may be as much a symbol for obsessive love.

I am so excited that Niccolo apparently now has a nemesis.

And the nemesis is PRETTY.

nosey-nate asked: I'm so sorry you're up to Famagusta! (Also, I'm entertained, because your updates make me laugh). Race of Scorpions, and Famagusta in paritcular, is where I realised I was totally screwed, I loved Nicholas, and DD was a horrible person who'd dunnett again and had me completely hooked.

I can’t believe she had me sucked in for three whole books! After all of Lymond, after all the lessons I learned about how no-one can ever, ever be happy and how terrifyingly good Dorothy can be at making her characters UNhappy, and then [redacted] being in Famagusta just freaking BLINDSIDED me. I feel like I’ve grown soft. I’ve forgotten my training. I’ve let my team down, I’ve let myself down, I’ve let the whole school down. This is like [spoilers, redacted] all over again, except if only for reasons of pure, jaded shell shock and cynicism- HOW DID I NOT SEE THIS COMING AFTER THAT GODDAMN WATERFALL SCENE. HOW DID THAT NOT START THE ALARM BELLS. DAMMIT, DOROTHY. YOU’VE DUNNETT AGAIN.

NICHOLAS IS UP AGAINST THE BORG
