Witches who can only cast spells through rhymed verse locked in an epic rap battle.
Double double, toil and trouble
I’ll make ya mama’s cauldron bubble
Eye of newt and wing of bat
I’ll show yo mama where it at
Harper cries tis time, tis time
You ain’t a witch ‘less you can rhyme!
I went to elementary school with this girl, Heather, who had just started competitive swimming when we were in first grade. She always said she wanted to swim for the rest of her life and that she wanted to swim in the Olympics one day.
Heather swam in the 2012 Olympics in London.
Don’t you dare tell me a child’s dreams are foolish when anything is possible if you work hard enough.
This is amazing…
my mom found a birthday card i made for my brother in elementary school
so we opened it up
i implied that i hated him and then drew my own selfie

Sabriel by Margot Wood
In the early 1990s, Garth Nix went to a flea market in Sydney, Australia and looked through a box of old, early 1900s photographs that were being sold for a dollar a piece. As he flipped through the photos he came across a photograph of a young woman in a military style coat wearing a belt made out of bells and holding a sword. He studied the photo, wondering who this mysterious woman was. He purchased the photo, took it home and promptly wrote the draft for his young adult high-fantasy novel, Sabriel.
THIS DID NOT ACTUALLY HAPPEN. But what if it did? And that, my beautiful friends, is the idea behind this fauxto.
I wanted to do something different for my Young Adults fauxto series. I’ve recently been doing character portraits and knew I wanted to do one for Sabriel, but to give it a twist, I wanted to take a fauxto of a real person that would serve as the inspiration for the fictional character. Does that make any sense?
Basically, in my imagination, Garth Nix based Sabriel off a real person and I wanted to explore what that woman would look like and voila, you have the image before you.

My friend Margot (The Real Fauxtographer) has an amazing series where she interprets YA novels into these wonderful, wonderful photos (see also, her Code Name Verity photo, and her photo for Shadow and Bone - amazing).
I had the privilege of sitting for her on her Sabriel photo. Personal bias aside, this is a pretty special photo to me because Sabriel is one of my absolute favorite books ever, and she’s a heroine near and dear to my heart.
When Margot first approached me about this portrait, I shared with her that a lot of readers may disagree with her interpretation because Sabriel is interpreted as white (I mean, it’s pretty canon). Her response - “you’re pale, you have dark hair, you’re Sabriel” - while simple, is gratifying and validating to me. Not a lot of people would be flexible to the idea of having a POC pose as a traditionally white heroine, making this doubly special, and even more awesome.
i saw this and thought “omg that looks JUST LIKE reelbs” and then i saw this post and i’m so thrilled it really is you because this series kicks so much ass and this is a really really great interpretation
fine i’m not cruel enough to make you go through my entire art tag but here are my favourite Loki pics/things i’ve done ok since apparently its a shock to some new people ???
