CARYL - "When You Say Nothing At All"





Hi Everyone,

I'm excited to be back with a new post about our favorite ship of the Apocalypse!





I happened to randomly hear the song I chose for this video a few months ago and I was like that is so CARYL! It really made me think about the depth of their relationship and how they have such an understanding of each other that they can have a conversation without even talking. They know what the other one is thinking and feeling just by looking into their eyes. It comes from a strong level of connection they share from the abusive scars of their past, and all they've had to overcome in the present. What they have together is so special that it cannot be defined by words......it can only be expressed through love.




A few weeks ago on Twitter I asked what some of your favorite aspects of Caryl's relationship is, and I just love this response from @M8ofClay!



Beautifully said, Carolin.....and wonderful points about their unconditional bond.




Well I guess that's all until next time, and let's hope we get even more Caryl goodness in Season 8!

Love you guys,
-GG

HAPPY BIRTHDAY - MELISSA MCBRIDE





Hi Everyone,

I have been so excited about our Queen of the Apocalypse's birthday that it has taken me about a month to get this post completed as I wanted to make a video tribute and a new fan art design for this wonderful occasion! 




I have to start by saying that when I heard the song I used in this video for the first time, it instantly made me think of Carol and her journey so far. I loved how the song was not talking about losing someone, but that it was about losing yourself. Carol has definitely been down that road and the way she has handled it continues to inspire me everyday in my own battles. I love that by the end of this past season she chose to fight for her family and that the love she has for them was stronger than her need to isolate herself any longer. She cannot simply erase the bond that she has formed with them and is what ultimately saves her and brings her back.




I made this design to honor what a warrior Carol has become even though she did not think she could be, she always found the courage and strength for whatever situation she was put in. Which is another reason she is my favorite!

Lastly if by the rare chance Ms. Mcbride reads this post I want to say.......

The love and passion that you put into Carol is so beautiful and truly touches my life in a deep and personal way. Thank you so much for all that you do for not only this character but also for the fans! Your light is something special and it touches us all. I hope you have the BEST birthday ever and know how much you are LOVED!




I think that about covers it for now so until next time.... 
Keep Calm and Carol On!

Love to all,
-GG

DESIGN OF THE WEEK: "LOST - You Found Me"








Hi Everyone,

It's time to feature another new design and in case you missed last weeks design, you can check it out by clicking here



Now lets dive right into this weeks.....






The series LOST was one of my first true TV obsessions. Not only did I enjoy trying to solve all the mysteries about the Island but I also got completely swept away by so many dynamic characters. I could find something to identify with about each one. When you look at each of their lives you realize that they were already lost before crashing on to the Island, as a matter of fact it took getting stranded for them to truly be found in the connections they made with each other.





















I am so grateful for the impact this show has had in my life and even still to this day it continues to inspire and move me in so many wonderful ways.

I will feature another design next week, so until then I would love to hear what some of your favorite LOST moments are in the comments!

DESIGN OF THE WEEK: "Richonne - The Couple That Slays"






Hi Everyone,

It's time to feature another new design and in case you missed last weeks design, you can check it out by clicking here.


Now on to this weeks.....






Although "Caryl" is my favorite couple on TWD, I have to say that "Richonne" is a super close second. With Michonne losing her son and Rick losing his wife, I feel like they have been given a second chance at those roles. 


The healing that takes place when Michonne holds Judith for the first time is one of my favorite scenes of the entire series.




I also love the depth of Carl and Michonne's relationship.



She makes a wonderful mom to these two and watching their connections grow is one of my favorite things about the show.




 Lastly, the sparks between "Richonne" are so electric! I love that they can be really fun and playful but also serious when it counts. They give each other a reason to keep fighting, living and loving. What they share is beautiful and I would love to see Judith become a big sister soon! πŸ‘ΆπŸ’•

I will be back with another design next week.

DESIGN OF THE WEEK: "Fringe - Fauxlivia & Lincoln"






Hi Everyone,

It's that time of the week again to feature another new design! In case you missed last weeks "Design Of The Week" you can check it out by clicking this link.



Ok so let's get right to this weeks design.....





One of my favorite TV couples of all time is Fauxlivia and Lincoln from Fringe. I love all versions of them but the final one in which Lincoln from the Blueverse decides to stay on the Red side to be with Fauxlivia is my favorite. The fact that Fauxlivia lost the Lincoln on her side and that Lincoln lost the Olivia on his side (to Peter), just makes it all the more beautiful that fate allowed them to still find versions of each other to fall in love and grow old with.




Honestly the way they look at each other just makes me want to eat a rainbow or something. 😍



Ok I should probably stop now as I could fangirl about these two all day, and if you have never seen Fringe than I would highly recommend binging is as soon as possible. It is one of the best Sci Fi series of all time and has one of the best fandom families you will ever be apart of.

I hope my Fringe family enjoyed this weeks design. πŸ’— 
Stay tuned for another new design next week!

DESIGN OF THE WEEK: "Caryl - We Ain't Ashes"






Hi Everyone & Welcome To My Universe,

I am so excited to be writing my first post on my new site! Before we get started visit the About Me page to learn more about who I am and what my interests include. 😊



So now let's talk about the Design Of The Week....





The episode "Consumed" from The Walking Dead is one of my favorite of the entire series. The way that Daryl tries to encourage Carol by telling her that they aren't ashes even after all the consuming things they've been through, highlights the special bond and connection that these two characters share. I also feel like their conversation came full circle in the recent episode "New Best Friends", as the current state of both of their lives has basically been reduced to a heap of ashes through the effects of Negan. But even though circumstances caused them to lose themselves, I feel like they were found again in the moment of their long awaited reunion. The look of relief and comfort as they embraced offered healing and hope to what their lives have become.

I was so excited and moved by this beautiful reunion that I had to make a video tribute of it below.....




As you can probably tell, I am a huge fan of this these two and I really hope we will get more from them as the season continues. πŸ’˜
