*waves* Hullo, m’dears. :) I’ve been missing (not literally, of course, that would be horrendous! O.o) from the interwebs and thought I’d come and say howdy. :)

It was my class reunion on Saturday (it was my seventieth year reunion, thank you ;D *snorts* ❤) and I really only went as my best bud wanted me to go along with him (we’ve been friends since Freshman year of high school :) ). Surprisingly, it was pretty alright. :) Connected back with a couple people that I hadn’t talked to, well, since really graduation and… yeah. Me and Simon had a ball, of course (the photographer quite liked us, as we were hamming it up a bit ;D) and just hung about and had a good time. :) So yah (and I got to spend a couple days with my bud, which is always a plus :) ).

And then I’ve been a smidgen bit under the weather, so OTP challenge had been put on hold. But I’m working on day seven now (should be posted later tonight/earlier tomorrow) and have the next few planned out, so you’ve been warned. >u> ❤

Speaking of which; you know how I said in the last it was the first time I had drawn Arthur??? Well, guess who is an unintentional dirty liar? Me! D: See??! I completely forgot that I had sketched out that Skipthur! I only found out about it as me and Simon were going through my tumblr. So thank you, mine crumpet, for letting me show you around my oddness. :D ❤

But yes. I’ve babbled on long enough. :) How have you all been? I hope you’re doing amazingly well. ❤❤❤

And with that, I’ll end this post. Until next time.

Hearts,

Carla ❤❤❤

tracionn said: EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS IS ADORABLE AND YES YOUR ARTHUR IS PERFECT AND SO IS THE FICLET AND AAWW COMFORTING BOYFRIEND DOUGLAS MAKES MY HEART GO FUZZY I AM LOVING THIS!

Thanks so much, m’honey! >u< ❤❤❤

Also, you’re adorable. May I have ten of you, please? Thank you. >u> ❤


"Douglas! How can I wear this?!"
"You&#8217;re lucky I packed an extra dress shirt. After Arthur spilled the pitcher of water on you, you may have been flying home in nothing but your jacket and trousers."
"I look like a child!"
"Oh, perish the thought! You look all man!&#8230; Granted, an adorable man who I&#8217;d love to wrap my arms around right now, but a man, none the less," Martin gives him a dirty look just as Douglas in the spur of the moment decides to plop Martin&#8217;s illustrious pilot&#8217;s cap on, "Good Lord! How has your neck not snapped under the weight of this thing?!"
"It is not heavy! It has the standard amount of gold braid, thank you very much! And furthermore -"
"Skip!" Just before Martin&#8217;s tirade could truly start, Arthur bursts into the small room "Good news! I got your shirt dry!"
"Oh, thank God!"
"Bad news," Arthur uncharacteristically interrupts, a terribly sheepish smile lining his face, "It&#8217;s&#8230; sorta burnt."
"Arrrgh!" Martin muffle screams into his hands, mostly hitting sleeve as he buries his face into his hands.He keeps his face hidden there, hearing Arthur saying he would go and try to find another shirt somewhere, the door clicking loudly shut.
Martin just keeps hiding, surprised that not terribly long after; he feels a pair of strong arms wrap around him, hands rubbing his back, murmurs of assurance continuing on until he relaxes into the touch, sighing as he buries his face into Douglas&#8217; chest.
"It&#8217;ll be fine, you know. It is only a few frat boys on the flight. I&#8217;m sure they won&#8217;t mind the plethora of extra shirt on your person."
Martin sighs again, wrapping his arms around Douglas&#8217; soft middle, &#8220;I know, it&#8217;s just, just that I&#8230; I like to look&#8230;&#8221; Before he can say anything else, Douglas kisses the top of his head, surprising Martin further with all the affection, they really only kissing and such in their time, not MJN time.
"I know." Douglas gently says into Martin&#8217;s curls, Martin smiling into Douglas&#8217; warmth, knowing that his beau truly knew.

Yesterday - Tomorrow
It&#8217;s the first time I&#8217;ve drawn Arthur! Isn&#8217;t he adorable???! I wanna pinch his cheeks. &gt;u&gt; ❤ Anyhoo&#8230;
But yes. Douglas and Martin are still Douglas and Martin, whether they  be dating or not. ;D 
Um&#8230; I need to work on their height. Goodness gracious&#8230; No, I don&#8217;t think even Martin is that short. It just got wonky when I was making him stoop in his outrage, you know? There is still a good height difference with the Martin and Douglas, but not that badly. ;) (and Arthur&#8217;s the tallest of all, I&#8217;ve always seen it this way :D).
But yes. Sorry for the delay. I&#8217;ll try not to have such a break in between days anymore.
Until next time!

"Okay." Martin squeaks, his face feeling as if it were on fire, it feeling ten times worse as Douglas just kept smiling sweetly at him.
His first officer leans forward slightly, Martin feeling his heart rate skyrocket to the heavens.
"Relax," He hears Douglas say softly, "I&#8217;m not going to bite you or anything&#8230;" He looks away for a split second, "Though, possibly later in our little tryst, if you&#8217;d like." He grins, waggling his eyebrows, this making Martin laugh, calming him right down as his smile stays in place,
"May I still kiss you?" 
"Yes. Yes please." Martin murmurs, feeling the smile still on his lips as he looks down to Douglas&#8217;, wanting very much to feel his friend&#8217;s lips on his.
Douglas closes in, his hand landing gently on Martin&#8217;s cheek as their lips connect in a gentle, intimate touch&#8230;
It was one of the best first kisses Martin had ever had.

Here&#8217;s day five, hooray! :D Sorry it took a couple days, m&#8217;dears.
I&#8217;m much happier with their profiles (though Douglas in the first panels&#8217; face is slightly longer&#8230; But I still like it :) ). Martin&#8217;s profile still needs a bit of tweaking, but I think I&#8217;m getting there. *nods* :) And&#8230; I do rather like Martin&#8217;s hair in these. &gt;u&gt;;
But yes. I do so hope you enjoy, my darlings! :D Until the next! *whooshes away into the night/morning* &gt;u&gt;

tracionn said: You know, Douglas’ smile in the last panel is nothing but brilliant perfection. So gentle, so loving! *swooooons*

Thank you, m’dear. >u< You’re too kind. ^/////^ ❤❤❤ I think Douglas is just already more than smitten with Martin at this point. >u> ❤

Anonymous sent: 2, 9, 27 please!

Oh goodness, okay…

2.) Favourite TV Show: Doctor Who. This most likely isn’t surprising. >u> I love the British panel shows too, I must say. I adore QI (I am terribly sad that the J and K series are blocked here now on the youtubes. D: I know those are on hulu now, but not the XL ones. :( </3 I’m horridly sad over this. I just wanna have my Christmas playlist intact…). And ‘Would I Lie To You’ is pretty fun (David Mitchell makes me giggle terribly much >u>), and the ‘Big Fat Quiz of the Year’… I like many a British shows. ;)
I also love ‘Face Off’ on Syfy and all the different ‘Mysteries at the Museums’ they have on Travel. :D

9.) Favourite Thing to Do: Ohhhh… I do love just to do crafty things. Like I love to sketch about and listen to my music, or the sewing of my costumes (I love working with my hot glue gun, I don’t get to use it as much as I’d like), which I’d probably enjoy much more if I didn’t leave it until the last possibly minute for a convention. >.>; … And I love to bake and cook (I think that could go into crafty type things, no? ;) ).
Another thing is, I just love to listen to some music and just sorta zone out. Not completely zone out, just… Hmm. Okay, the best example would be, listening to some of my favorite songs and I just start imagining a whole sorta scene. I’ve just always done so. Coheed and Cambria songs are what get me imagining scenarios the most (I also love singing along and dancing to said songs, but just by my lonesome. I get shy…).
I also just love to dip around at a garage sale or thrift store. I adore it. Get me to one, I’ll be digging in boxes and everywhere. :D Or… just looking about, not really looking for anything in any sort of store. :)

27.) Favourite Smell: Well… I love the smell of hairspray after it settles (Aussie, is what I like ;) ). I very rarely dry and style my hair, so … Yeah. XD Also the spray sunscreen (Banana boat, preferably), that’s divine. Then campfires, matches after you blow them out, coffee, and freshly laundered bedding. OH! And that sorta earthy smell that just comes along with fall/autumn. Mmm… Goodness, you were probably expecting maybe a perfume or something and you get all these odd responses. XD; I’m just very picky with artificial smells (I hate most pumpkin type smells in the fall), and dislike most floral type perfumes and air fresheners. I do love the old coconut lime perfume Bath and Body works had (I ran out sometime ago :( ) and the citrus one (OH, that’s another one, I love the smell of orange zest…). So, yeah. :)

And there you be, m’dear. I hope my babbling didn’t wreck this for you. ;) ❤❤❤

"You know&#8230;I-I thought you&#8217;d be dragging me to some, some posh restaurant where it was a speck of something on a plate for an UNREASONABLE amount."
"Oh no, sir, over priced morsel specks are strictly second date only." Martin chuckles as Douglas smiles at him with a cock of his eyebrow, the older of the two taking a sip from his bottle of water.
It had been a nice evening. Far nicer and much lovelier than Martin ever thought a date with Douglas would be. For one thing, Douglas had completely surprised him by packing a picnic. Surprising him even further when their picnic destination was the airfield toward dusk&#8230; Though, maybe he shouldn&#8217;t have thought a date with Douglas would be so bad. They did get on and were getting on even further with spending time with one another&#8230; And Martin had liked him for a long while. He just supposed that it was too good to be true that Douglas felt the same&#8230;
They went on chatting about this and that. Martin, getting into his thoughts about a new safety video an airline had done (&#8220;Arthur would be ecstatic!&#8221;); he&#8217;s surprised to feel Douglas&#8217; hand clasp his, looking down to confirm that&#8217;s what he felt.
Looking up to Douglas, he&#8217;s more than surprised to see an almost tender smile lining Douglas&#8217; face. So much so, he feels his cheeks automatically start to flush, feeling nearly bashful.
"Douglas?"
"If I may; permission to lay a kiss upon your lips, captain?"

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day IV - On A Date
Yesterday - Tomorrow
And a comic page (it&#8217;s why it took another day to get up, sorry, m&#8217;dears! ❤)! I&#8217;m just full of surprises. &gt;u&gt; 
I don&#8217;t know&#8230; But yes. You know what comes tomorrow, yes? ;D 
Um&#8230; I&#8217;m not entirely happy with Martin (nor either of their profiles :P I like them fine, just not my best&#8230;). Bottom Martins there; it looks like the same character, but&#8230; doesn&#8217;t? Do you know what I mean? I don&#8217;t know what happened with the first one there. It just&#8230; yeah. I like him, it&#8217;s just not exactly how he&#8217;s been looking through the past couple days&#8230; It&#8217;s a process. I&#8217;m trying more to actually have them look the same, so pardon my sorta experimentation, dear-hearts. :) ❤❤❤
Indeed! &gt;u&gt; I do so hope you enjoy, my honeys. Until the next, have a otterly wonderful morning/afternoon/evening/night! :) 
Hearts,

Thank you, Fitz, m’honey! :D It’s just so much fun giving him such expressions. XD ❤

No, it’s not. They sell it at my local grocery store for the same price.
