arin-of-herran:

His desperation and misery swept her up like a storm capturing the sea. She turned her mind to even these feelings, because they were his, like his terrified rage in the lift when they had first met, being wrapped in his arms in a cold well, being dazzled by his wonder at the woods and her home and her. Like being a child, awareness of him the morning chorus that woke her and the lullaby that sent her to sleep, his thoughts always her first and last song.

I love you, Kami told him, and  C  U  T  .

So I’m rereading the Lynburn Legacy and I knew this scene was coming up. And I thought, in my sophomoric bravado, “Not this time, Brennan, I’m ready, you can’t hurt me.”

Guess what. This scene still performed an Irish river dance on my heart. But misery loves company so here you go, fandom. Some pain. But to be fair - Kami and Jared loosing their link was pretty vital to their development. Jared needed to stop centering his entire existence around Kami and maybe Kami needed to learn how scary a lack of certainty is, especially in regards to loved ones. 

LOVE the image of Jared as a knight. Jared and Kami both being addicted to words, but super different words, is very important in a story all about communication. Books were Jared’s friends… like being with Kami… and they helped him but also made him think in straaange ways about romance (love as saving someone, love as the surrender of the self) especially as he hadn’t experienced love in real life (well, love in person).

Something he really has to deal with in the trilogy!

Also love to torment people, always, you guys know that. ;)

HAPPY UNMADE DAY

To celebrate, the beautiful Cassandra Jean drew me an amazing poster of Team Goodish and Highly Endangered, with an ominous tag line and all!

(From front left: Jared Lynburn, Kami Glass, Ash Lynburn, Holly Prescott, Ten Glass, Tomo Glass, Angela Montgomery, Rusty Montgomery, Lillian Lynburn and Jon Glass.)

Meanwhile… Have you ever wanted me to do your bidding?

Maybe I should rephrase that… to celebrate Unmade Day on my blog, I’m taking requests for wee short stories about ANY CHARACTERS OF MINE you like!

Go here to request:

I hope you enjoy Unmade. I talked about you guys in it. ;)

Kami Glass and Jared Lynburn a couple to be taken seriously. 

But honestly, Sarah Rees Brennan rocks characterization so hard.

Awwwwwwww.

*pauses* D’awwwwww.

Am I taking ‘ties of red and gold’ too literally here?

Don’t worry, Jared, Kami’s on her way to save you!

I’m clawing my way out of this drawing slump guys :) 

Kami’s taken a few months. ;) 

(TOO MEAN! Fire this author!)

I really like the ties! Fun fact: I remember searching for pictures to show what I wanted in a cover and I had a whole set that was people tied up with red ribbon.

Yes. People being tied up. I am so great at being a YA author. Filth, filth, endless filth. ;)

The weight of your family´s legacy
 (Jared Lynburn)

Oh my gosh this is amazing. I want it as an illustration in the book! I am in awe.
He’s so cute with his hair and his T-shirt and his bloody hands! The house on the hill surrounded by trees looks like it’s from a old-school Gothic cover! The blood it comes down like a river onto his hands! They could have a blood moat at Aurimere! Yaaaaas. 
I’m sorry. I’m such an unacceptable author. This should be a graceful and insightful expression of how artistic and insightful I found this art to be!

Lynburn Legacy artsies! (Drawn yukke style!) 
But really, I drew it so colorful but the books will rip your heart out. Perhaps this is false advertising. 

Jared do not look so ungrateful about being saved by a lady in such a fantastic gown!

Beautiful thoughtful song choices! Loved specially, for Lynburny reasons:

'That boy's got my heart in a silver cage
Why can’t you want me like the other boys do?
They stare at me while I crave you

I walked into the room dripping in gold’

And since I always try to play around with how we talk about gender and desire:

'You know I'm gonna find a way
To let you have your way with me’
