I watched the film and well… Im in love with all of them. And the comic is amazing <3
Is there a fandom?
things Nicky would have if they were real
A scene from this beautiful fic by @astrabear, which is so lovely and bittersweet and cathartic, especially as I think about family and age and thankfulness this season. If you can handle the feels, this is a gem.

Future!fic. Humanity has spread out amongst the stars, and Nile and her team are struggling to figure out where they fit in: out in the furthest reaches of the galaxy, or home on Earth with those who still remain. Dreams of a new immortal don't exactly simplify matters.
"Think it's time to get the band back together?" Nile asks.
"As if Nicky or Joe would let us collect the new kid without them." Booker regards her steadily. "Think it'll be enough to get Quỳnh back on a ship?"
"Guess we'll find out. Because…"
She hesitates, as though saying it aloud will make it too real. So Booker says it for her.
"Because that desert was nowhere on Earth," he finishes. "And the girl in our dreams wasn't human."
HEY LOOK I FINALLY FINISHED MY BIG BANG FIC! And super thrilled to have partnered with @technotrousers -- here’s the accompanying art post!
Nicky: After careful consideration and going over multiple options I think the best choice is stay warm and cozy in bed forever.
My entry for this year’s Old Guard Big Bang! Featuring astrolabes, a mystery, and some fabulous art by the wonderful mific, which you can find on AO3 here. Seriously, go and check out the art, which is so amazing and detailed and atmospheric! Thanks both to mific and to the BB mods, and, while I’m at it, thanks to all the IRL friends who have been listening to me ramble about this story for the last few months!
Summary: It's 1120, and Yusuf and Nicolò are living in Bukhara, having gone into business together copying books. Everything would be perfect, if only Nicolò could get himself to stop pining over Yusuf. But then Nathaniel ibn Isaac, a Jewish physician from Córdoba, comes to them seeking someone to help him complete a manual for an astrolabe plate he's invented. Nicolò enjoys the job, until someone starts making attempts on Nathaniel's life. Now his life, Yusuf and Nicolò's secret, and their corner of the scholarly community in Bukhara are at risk until they can find the would-be killer.
The Old Guard Big Bang 2022
My art for Strange-Eyed Constellations by the lovely @kaydeefalls for the @oldguardbigbang! The medium is oil pastel on paper, running with the starting pitch of "The Old Guard ... in SPAAACE"!
Here’s a playlist inspired by the fic, aiming to go from WOO, SPACE! to some immortal melancholy and come back around to hopefulness, which I hope does justice to the story!
Manifesting a teaser trailer or at least some promo photos from the projects I'm excited - Red White and Royal Blue movie, The Old Guard 2, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Sanditon S3, Bridgerton S3, Heartstopper S2, Arcane S2, Our Flag Means Death S2... I need some content to hold on to!!
