August Rush: Day 11

Hey everyone! How is your August Rush going? I am feeling pretty pleased with myself as I just made a bunch of icons for the Game of Thrones pics, which I will link to the concluding post of the challenge, once we're all virtually done. If you were behind like me, I hope you got caught up at the weekend, but if not, don't worry! There is still plenty of time!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Disney - Once Upon a Time

MCU - Guardians of the Galaxy


Game of Thrones

Have fun!

Hmm... they should be public. If there's a fandom you want in particular, let me know and I'll email it to you. If you want all of them, then I'll have a re-think. Might have to send you the links from Hiddle's Photobucket account.

I can't see the images either. It says image is locked.

I bet they're friends only. :o(

You may be right, but I just double-checked that they were loaded as public... so I'm not sure what's going on. Check them again, and if you still can't see them, then friend me and I'll friend you back, which should solve it! Stupid LJ settings...

I can see them now. :o) Thanks for checking again.

I don't know why this happened because yesterday I was able to see both your folder "August Rush 2018" and also the first pictures you posted earlier this month. Maybe LiveJournal changed the settings for each picture? Sometimes it happens - also in other Communities (for example Screencap-Communities). :o( But there I still have the galleries on other pages.

That's so weird, but I'm so glad the re-set worked and you can see them now! :-O

I have just re-checked my scrapbook; they're showing as public, but I've re-selected them and saved as public again, so let me know if that doesn't work.

Thanks! They're all showing up. :)

The Watch - Game of Thrones - Jon Snow, Ygritte, Melisandre - 309 words
The voices fade away as he falls. He connects with the ground. The cold from the snow that surrounds him seems to seep in from all sides. The light grows more dim until he can no longer see anything.

“The Crow has returned to the roost,” says a voice that he recognizes immediately.

“I don’t think I’m a Crow anymore,” he says.

“You waste too much time talking, Jon Snow,” replies Ygritte, rushing into his arms.

She is warm and real and here. He finds he doesn’t mind. They make love for hours, catching up on all the time they’ve lost. Time has no meaning here. There’s no responsibility, nothing for him to go back to. Nothing but these moments with his love. This may be the life hereafter that the Seven have promised.

One evening, Ygritte looks at him and, in a voice that’s not her own, says, “Your watch has not yet ended.” A flare of panic shines in Ygritte’s eyes as the voice of Stannis’ Red Witch continues, “You must return, Lord Commander. The Army of the Dead is coming. Protect your people, human and free folk alike. You were chosen for this role. The Lord of Light has shown His favor on you. Return to us, Jon Snow. Your watch has not yet ended.”

Ygritte blinks and reaches for him as he pulls away from her. It breaks his heart to have to leave her again.

She faces him with tears in her eyes. “Go. Fulfill your duty, Jon Snow.”

He touches his lips to hers once more, wanting to stay, but knowing that he has to leave. “When my watch is over, I will return.”

“Go,” she says once more.

Darkness envelops him. He draws in a gasping breath and opens his eyes to a room filled with torchlight. His watch can begin again.

This for the MCU Guardians of the Galaxy

Bitch, please! Quill thought as he pretended to listen to Gamora rant at him about something he didn't remotely give a rat's ass about. Captain Kirk didn't get this kind of crap from his crew.

"Are you listening to me, Quill?" Gamora asked suddenly leaning on his seat snd whispering in his ear.

"Hanging on your every word," Quill quipped barely keeping his attention focused on the scene before him. She had that effect on him.

"Then what did I say?" she softly countered.

"I didn't know there was going to be a pop quiz," he retorted testily.

"Luckily, it wasn't very important," she said in disgust before smacking him on the back of the head.

"Ow!" he hollered and turned to glare at her. "What the hell was that for?"

"Eyes front, Star Lord," she firmly told him before walking away.

Quill quickly turned around and made a few minor adjustments to keep from flying into a cliff.

"Some days it doesn't pay to get out of bed," he muttered to himself ignoring the maniacal laughter tha erupted behind him.

HA! That's so Starlord! Well done! ;-)

Thank you. Quill is fun to write.
