The three most beautiful days

That’s what we call Fasnacht, our carnival in Basel, which is happening right now – actually it’s ending tomorrow morning at 6am, having started Monday 4am. (Yes, we’re a week later than most, already officially in Lent – my theory is that they chose the date to thumb their noses at their Catholic neighbours, post-Reformation. Basel is special like that. *g*)

I missed most of it this year, only going to the children’s parade on Tuesday with my brother and his family (omg, my nephews were so fricking adorable!) and having a wander through town today, taking a look at some of the lanterns and floats. I did, however, have the mandatory foods: onion quiche and flour soup, yum!

I also booked the trains for the Shadowhunters con in Brussels in June. As an extra awesome perk, because traveling via Paris is fastest, I’ll leave a day early and spend the night with one of my Jalec gals. We’ll then travel to Brussels together. Yay for time in beautiful Paris!

In other news, I watched two more episodes of Guardian (eps 28/29), which means more liveblogs! 🙂

Jalec gif set: I refuse to stand still

Alec is unapologetic about the fact that he’ll do anything to keep Jace by his side, and I live for it. (Codependent parabatai FTW! *g*) And Abby S is always good for inspiration… But wow, colouring this show is a nightmare. :/

I refuse to stand still 
in the face of losing you

Today, I vidded

I decided it was high time to finally finish my last Fandom Trumps Hate contribution and finished a Stucky vid for Brenda:

Peertube | Youtube | AO3

It’s a bit of an experiment for me, style- and music-wise, but I think it turned alright. 🙂

Sunday is also Shadowhunters live-watch time with some of the girls from the Jalec Discord. We’ve reached 3×09, so we’re in the middle of the emotional rollercoaster that’s the end of 3a. It really is a lot of fun to have people to liveblog with, especially since we all share a love for our OTP but also the show in general.

This takes me back…

I don’t think I expected ever to make another 100x100px icon, but here we are. 🙂 Since I’m using DW again, I had to have a few Jalec icons, no question!

Feel free to use them with credit, if you want. 😉

shadowhunters - jalec hugging in 1x05, text: yearning (black-and-white)

shadowhunters: jace & alec parabatai ceremony, text: parabatai

The last also exists in bigger size, in case you wanted to admire Jace & Alec’s combined hotness more closely. *g*

Just… look at them, holy shit! *fans self*

More Guardian – and fic!

Not Guardian fic, though, I wouldn’t dare quite yet. 🙂

However, with the help of writingstreak.io (which is currently down for me) I’ve written at least a couple hundred words each day, enabling me to finish the next chapter of my Jalec vampire academy!AU: Prince & Guardian – Chapter 3

And then of course there’s Guardian. I’ve reached episode 12, and somehow the show just keeps getting slashier and slashier. I honestly can’t with these two!

Copying my squee for episodes 9-12 over from Masto, which originally directed at asya (SPOILER warning):
