"Gone is Connor’s prevailing innocent appearance that hinted at boyish embarrassment or awkward shyness. It is a man who lies before them all, marked by anger and bearing the aged appearance of tribulation, pain and suffering. What would ever push a quiet person like Connor to alter his appearance in such a drastic way intentionally? They had all witnessed his anger in defense of the town but he had never before done such a thing as this… and come back nearly dead because of whatever had transpired." - Home, chapter 1
Raise your hand if you’ve ever accidentally developed a crush on a character of your own creation
Oh, Sonehso:wa, why are you so hot and have such a good sense of humor?
"Connor disgustedly knocks the expended pistol out of Sergio’s reach, sending it spinning across the deck. He takes the other one from his holster, along with a knife, and tosses the weapons carelessly behind him to join the other gun. Satisfied with the man’s disarmed state, he extends his hidden blade, spinning it so he can grip it in his left fist.
'Wait…' The word catches in Catherine's aching throat and she has to try again to make it any more than a whisper as Connor shifts forward slightly and raises his blade.
'No! Wait!' Connor turns at the unexpected sound of her voice and extends his right hand across his body toward her in a cautionary gesture as she lurches away from the railing and falls to her knees beside him. She pushes Connor's hand gripping the blade away only to lean close and look carefully at the man who had caused her so much pain and sorrow. Connor retracts his blade and sits back on his heels, allowing Catherine to say what she will before he dispatches the man once and for all.” - Misguided, chapter 24 “Rage”
the end result of ink practice. Had to stop because my sketch got too messy to understand what was going on lol.
"Approaching the chestnut horse, Catherine raises her hand toward him and he plods over for her attention. She backs toward a stack of wood and the horse follows her until he is close enough for her to climb up onto him. She rides him over to the trail and then down into the gorge, letting him wander along the riverbed and drink. Catherine turns the horse downstream and follows the river around a bend while she considers what to do about Connor’s actions. If she encourages him, she worries that he will want more than she can give before long. She decides to wait and see if he continues to seek out physical intimacy or if this was a single, impulsive moment." - Misguided, chapter 7 "Day Seven"

Catherine is beautiful like this and it amplifies Connor’s need for her. Running his hands over her, he follows the path his eyes had taken until his palms are over her hips. Curving his hands under her pelvis, he shifts until his hips press against hers, making her close her eyes and inhale at the contact. Her reaction drives his arousal further so he lowers his mouth to hers and kisses her deeply. She returns his kisses in kind, taking a handful of hair on the back of his head and pulling him closer. Her fingers close on his left shoulder and Connor rocks his hips, using his weight to his advantage and her enjoyment.” - Misguided, chapter 14 “Return”
I’m feeling like posting sexy things lately. Unfortunately that means editing the quotes heavily so I don’t offend anyone too much…
"Sonehso:wa leans forward and kisses her again before getting up and moving toward the door. Anika watches the play of his muscles under his skin as he reaches his cupped hands to the stream of water falling just outside the entrance to the cabin. It’s still pouring outside and he washes himself of their lovemaking in the monochromatic grey light of the fading day. Anika reaches between her legs and when she brings her fingers up, they carry the unmistakable evidence of their sexual act. A moment of shameful awareness washes over her. She has given herself to this man and he has taken her innocence. It can never be taken back. Sonehso:wa looks over his shoulder at her and smiles. He brings a damp cloth to Anika, kneeling down and kissing her as he offers it to her.
'Did I hurt you?' His concern erases her doubt and Anika shakes her head.
'No.'” - Misguided, chapter 14 “Awakening”
“‘Come here, Lily.’ I felt sick at the idea of being any closer to the King but, knowing He could just make me do His bidding, I went anyway, clutching the large book to my chest with both arms as if it could protect me from Him. He reached out to me and took my shoulder when I was close enough. His other hand went to the side of my neck and He softly touched my skin before taking the back of my neck firmly.
'You will need to earn my trust first, though. I can not have you wandering around looking for a way to defy me. Do not think I would fail to take that into consideration after last night. Can I trust you?' His eyes were painful they were so bright under the shadow of His wolf hood. I wanted to push the King away but He gripped my neck tightly so I nodded. The King pulled me nearer by my neck and lowered His mouth to mine. Forgive me… for I shudder at the memory… I kissed Him back. In that moment, I felt a piece of me fall away and shatter, never to be retrieved.” - The Quill, chapter 2
you have a talent for sewing <3
Omgosh all of those outfits look amazing! Im sure Noah Watts would be soo happy to have you make Connors robes :D
Thank you! It’s why I wanted to offer my skills to Noah. He’s so nice to his fans- he really appreciates us! And I feel like that’s a rare and beautiful thing. I really didn’t expect to hear from him at all and when I did, HE apologized to ME for the long delay! What what WHAT?? He’s a busy man, Noah is, and I’m just a nobody so I was flattered that he responded at all, never mind trust me to do a good job on something that’s so near and dear to his heart!
Making him INTO Connor is the least I can do for what he has done for me. I never thought I would be inspired by ANYTHING enough to write about it and yet Connor’s story has come alive in me! I needed to give him something good that he hadn’t seen even a hint of by the end of the game. I hear Connor talking in my head as I write but it’s not just Connor… It’s Noah.
So if I can give back even a fraction of what Connor’s story has done to change me, inspire me, drive me and keep me busy - even with the loss of my dear father cutting me to the heart and breaking me into pieces- then I will with the best of my talent and a high hope that when Noah sees it and puts it on, he can smile too.
Assassin’s Creed Cosplay
I figured since I’m doing the costume for Noah, everyone on here might be thinking, “Just how much experience does this chick have with sewing?” Well, I’ve been sewing for close to thirty years. It started out as little hand sewing projects that my mom taught me and then when I was in high school, I made my wedding dress.
Yes, that’s me on my wedding day! I wore it all those years later!
And then on to the obsession I hold that is Assassin’s Creed… I made my husband this costume of Ezio.
He was so popular at the local Rennaissance Faire we attended that I got jealous. I had dyed my wedding dress by then and added to it to make it look like Cristina Vespucci but no one recognized me. So for the following year, I made myself into Fiora Cavazza.
Here we are together with a girl dressed as Altair who found us and lent my husband her sword.
My husband’s belt and my fan are made from aluminum and we’re currently working on smelting so that a perfect, 3D printed version of Ezio’s belt can be sand casted and created out of aluminum.
Incidentally, the artist who designed the 3D render is also an Assassin’s Creed fan so we bartered: he designed the belt, and I’d make him an Assassin’s Creed inspired jacket.
This is what we came up with.
So hopefully this has inspired a little confidence, if there was any lacking. My resume, if you will. Sorry I blacked out my face and my husband’s. I do like anonymity but I wonder how much of that I’ll retain once Noah gets his costume. We’ll see. Until then, that last picture is all you’ll ever see of my face!
Eeeee! Now I want to delete this whole thing!
If you put a little log cabin where those people are standing…. this would be the perfect waterfall for my story!
