Writer, seamstress and artist. This blog is dedicated to entertaining those who enjoy good stories and laughter.

Generally I post or reblog intriguing, original or very humorous pictures, gifs and thoughts regarding the following fandoms:

X-Men, Once Upon a Time, Doctor Who, Jane Austen, Firefly, Harry Potter, Downton Abbey, etc.

I try to stay away from controversial subjects, although I will reblog occasional posts relating to the treatment of women, or the Pro-Life movement, if it presents information in a new and thought-provoking way.

As a writer and seamstress, I'll also include posts related to these areas of creativity.

Riina tagged me, so…

Rules: just insert your answers to the questions below and tag at least 10 followers
Name: Elizabeth

Nickname: Elena

Birthday: February 20th

Gender: female

Sexuality: heterosexual

Height: 5’8.5”

Timezone: Central

What time and date is it there? 12:25 8/29/2014

Average hours of sleep I get each night: 10-11 (lipreading all day wears me out more than the average person, thankful my husband is tremendously understanding)

The last thing I googled was: nearest post office… had to ship a costume piece to Australia!

My most used phrase: I love you 

First word that comes to mind: joy

What I last said to a family member: Heh. I am not sure. My husband kisses me goodbye before leaving for work every morning, but since I’m half asleep (see sleep schedule above!), I don’t always remember what I said. Probably either “I love you” or “Have a good day at work.”

One place that makes me happy and why: In the interest of not giving you a lovey-dovey answer, I’m going to go with either a) a used bookstore or b) a place with LOTS OF LOVELY FABRIC.

How many blankets I sleep under: 1-3, depending on the time of year.

Favourite beverage: GINGER BEER

The last movie I watched at the cinema: The Hunger Games (after which I got a migraine that sent me to the emergency room. Since then, fear of migraines + ticket prices have kept me away from movie theaters. I don’t even like big TV screens.)

Three things I can’t live without: my husband, my laptop and my sewing machine.

Something I plan on learning: Leatherworking!

A piece of advice for all my followers: Giving someone a genuine compliment, a smile, or a hand is a small but vital part of making the world a better place.

You all have to listen to this song: Can’t pick one song, but I do recommend listening to the “Into the Woods” soundtrack before the film comes out and changes the next generation’s memories of this musical.

I am not tagging anyone in particular, BUT if you follow me and fill this out, I’d love to read it. :)

I have been a wedding photographer for most of my life and I know when two people love each other deeply and that’s what I saw.”

important things I need to point out:

  • in continuity, Gambit has now made romantic advances towards Polaris
  • Polaris is the daughter of Magneto
  • Magneto was in a long term committed relationship with Rogue
  • who has been on and off with Gambit for years


I was figuring that would happen once they got on the same title and were both single.

Personally I find it hilarious, since Hubby’s X-Men cosplay is Gambit, and I do both Rogue and Lorna.

If you have gathered I am doing promo for All New X-Factor


You are correct. Because sales are down and Lorna isn’t going to be featured in the Magnus family reunion for Axis and Peter David bless him is trying TRYING to do interesting and overdue things with the characters so yes

How can she not be part of the reunion?????
