"Do what you will; but I will hinder it, if I may."

"Hinder me? Thou fool. No living man may hinder me!"

"But no living man am I! You are looking upon a woman. Éowyn am I, Éomund's daughter. You stand between me and my lord and kin. Begone, if you be not deathless! For living or dark undead, I will smite you, if you touch him."

I just got hangry and snapped at mom and I feel bad for it.

But also Steve is especially pissing me off lately because his super disgusting racist side is everywhere

Is “hangry” like when you’re hungry and angry at the same time?

August Book Photo Challenge Day 21: Longest Book

{} The Black Jewels Trilogy by Anne Bishop

I realize this is an omnibus, but I already put my actual longest book up last year (A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin). I read this series as a teenager, and completely adored it. It’s one of those that I’m afraid to go back, to read and feel differently. But, like Sailor Moon, even in the midst of my most anti-girly phases, I loved the rah-rah-women! of this series.

Synopsis:

Seven hundred years ago, a Black Widow witch saw an ancient prophecy come to life in her web of dreams and visions. Now the Dark Realm readies itself for the arrival of its Queen, the Witch who will wield more power than even the High Lord of Hell himself. But the Queen is still young, still open to influence - and corruption.

Whoever controls the Queen controls the Darkness. Three men - sworn enemies - know this. And they know the power that hides behind the blue eyes of an innocent young girl. And so begins a ruthless game of politics and intrigue, magic and betrayal, where the weapons are hate and love - and the prize could be terrible beyond imagining.

Most of my time on #guardiansofthegalaxy was spent designing Gamora. I loved doing this image showing the two sisters back to back. Love incorporating some storytelling in my concept illustrations. #nebula #gamora #marvel #marvelstudios #conceptart #sisters #gotg
