Must be Pepper’s birthday and he only remembered like 5 minutes ago during a fight.
I imagine him getting blasted and falling through the ceiling of a mall next to Victoria’s Secret and just going, “oh, well, while I’m here.”

Tony Comes Home
can you imagine though, jarvis all alone in tony’s malibu house? jarvis who of course doesn’t have any physical form at all, jarvis who at this point occupies just the house and tony’s phone—jarvis, who is dependent on tony for everything, who lives essentially in tony’s pocket, suddenly being completely alone for the first time in his silicon life.
and every ten minutes on the dot for days and days and days he accesses the latest news reports, re-calculating and re-calculating tony’s chances at survival, endlessly running the numbers. and nobody told him to do that. tony’s house was empty and dark and nobody told jarvis to keep an eye on the news but he did. jarvis could have just spun down his hard drives and gone into hibernate mode, but he didn’t.
no, he watched the news. he stood vigil. he waited and he hoped that his calculations were wrong. that one day he would be able to say welcome home, sir once more.
2013 was the year if SEEMINGLY INNOCENT COSPLAYS TURNING COMPLEX (and killed my cosplay budget). I knocked out three cosplays that I started one night in February because I was bored and thought they’d be easy to do. Two were, ONE WAS NOT because I underestimated the prop and didn’t expect to actually do it.
I started to slowly amp up my technique as well. I learned how to hand embroider and started purchasing fabric that was more realistic to the character or fit in with their world (Miku’s jacket is a fleece-type material that makes it very warm and jacket-like while the dress is stretchy but also slightly warm. A super cute winter outfit that kept me warm when I wore it on Halloween night = 3=b). I also started experimenting with props again (first time since I was 17) and towards the end of the year, I began to learn how to create finished-like seams with a basic sewing machine (which is now kind of null since I have a serger but it’s still a good trick to know regardless). I also went back to using pre-made patterns since I figured out I’m pretty bad at making my own (I just do not understand pattern making at ALL). I really wanted to enter a Masquerade with one of my costumes since I’m so insanely proud of her but I’ve got some insane stage fright so I didn’t even bother. She’s a winner to me though. ; 3;b
2014 I want to make more complex costumes as well as some easier ones so that I can practice certain sewing tricks more. I also want to work on some props if possible but I don’t know what’ll happen in ‘14 since a resolution of mine is to get a new job and move away from the city I’m in so cosplay will have to take a seat on the back burner for a little bit if I’m able to find a better job.
