Headdresses by Miss G Designs

Vivienne up and glowed up on our asses. LOL

These are so awesome. I can imagine some of my characters wearing them.

What if Bruce Wayne is actually in Arkham the whole time and Batman is just a delusion he has. All of his ‘villains’ are the orderlies and doctors who work there.

lennythereviewer:

“Poison Ivy” is the nurse who sedates him when he gets out of control

“Two-Face” is an abusive orderly who acts nice when the doctors are around and then beats up the patients when their backs are turned

“Riddler” is a therapist who asks him questions that he has a hard time answering

“Mad Hatter” is a hypnotherapist who Bruce is convinced is trying to brainwash him

and of course his arch-nemesis..

“Dr. Joe Car” and his assistant “Dr. Harleen Quinzel” see Bruce as their top patient, both desperately trying to bring the man back to sanity, and Batman will fight with all he has to protect gotham from “Joker” and “Harley Quinn”

The signs as dragons

Aries: biggest dragon of them all and is able to breathe fire in a range up to 10 meters or 32 feet from where it stands and therefor the most feared dragon. It has jet black scales and intimidating purple eyes.
Taurus: has white shimmering scales and if the sun shines on the scales in a correct angle, it’ll appear in different colours, creating beautiful rainbows across the sky. Humans are very fond of this dragon.
Gemini: can appear in various colours since it sheds its scales once a year, changing its colour randomly. Likes to travel and can be found all around the world. It isn’t bound to a specific place.
Cancer: lives in a hidden place and has hardly ever been seen by the human eye, but it’s highly sought by them because it’s said that drinking its blood will cure any kind of disease.
Leo: able to breathe burning blue hot fire, roasting anyone coming near it. It has golden scales worth a lot of money, but hard to take down due to their strong stamina.
Virgo: it has steely, sharp scales that can cut through anything. Humans like to hunt them down for their scales, using them to craft weapons. Therefor only very few of them are left.
Libra: is the most intelligent dragon. Clever enough to learn how to speak and interact with humans. In rare cases it can form a very strong bond to a certain human. Due to their similar minds, humans choose not to hunt them.
Scorpio: is purple with a very sharp tail producing deadly poison at the tip and therefore one single stab is able to kill. Very cunning when hunting and precise at aiming. Lives in mountain caves.
Sagittarius: smaller than the average size of a dragon, but has the fastest wings due to its light weight and is able to reach higher above the clouds than any other dragon.
Capricorn: only dragon to have horn on its head, which are highly desirable to human-kind. It has big silky-looking wings that are able to blow away enemies when flapping them.
Aquarius: a slim long dragon with blue scales, which makes it a very fast camouflaged swimmer. Can hold its breath up to 20 minutes under water. It lures the prey into water and wraps itself around the prey, letting it drown.
Pisces: it lives in freezing climates and has thick white scales to protect itself from the cold. Instead of fire it breathes ice, freezing its enemies and preys to death.

If you can tell stories, create characters, devise incidents, and have sincerity and passion, it doesn’t matter a damn how you write.

SKYLARK, SHADOWLARK, and LARK ASCENDING by Meagan Spooner

Publisher Synopsis:
Her world ends at the edge of the vast domed barrier of energy enclosing all that’s left of humanity. For two hundred years the city has sustained this barrier by harvesting its children’s innate magical energy when they reach adolescence. When it’s Lark’s turn to be harvested, she finds herself trapped in a nightmarish web of experiments and learns she is something out of legend itself: a Renewable, able to regenerate her own power after it’s been stripped.

Forced to flee the only home she knows to avoid life as a human battery, Lark must fight her way through the terrible wilderness beyond the edge of the world. With the city’s clockwork creations close on her heels and a strange wild boy stalking her in the countryside, she must move quickly if she is to have any hope of survival. She’s heard the stories that somewhere to the west are others like her, hidden in secret—but can she stay alive long enough to find them?

His Fair Assassin trilogy by Robin LaFevers

Summary of Grave Mercy

Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others.

Ismae’s most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittany—where she finds herself woefully under prepared—not only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death’s vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?
