1. using the internet in the library right now, and I wound up sitting facing all the books in the mystery section

    Titles I can see from here:

    what appears to be a quilting or at least sewing themed series, including “Stitch Me Deadly” and “The Quick and the Thread”

    what appears to be a librarian themed series, including “Due or Die”, “Books can be deceiving”, and “Book Line and Sinker”

    what appears to be a savory cooking themed series (several other series are baking and sweets-themed), including “Parsley Sage Rosemary and Crime” and “Too Many Crooks spoil the Broth”

    Oh, and there’s one entitled “Dead Men Don’t Crochet”

  3. Attempting to tell a story in sequential pictures gives me a lot of empathy for all those poor hapless people whose bad movies ended up on Mystery Science Theater 3000.

  10. ^ flowers (some actually are poppies) (damn you Tumblr why do you hate landscape drawings)
Ah, this was fun. :D Some shippy Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure #5 (Vento Aureo) fanart (Bruno/Giorno), for gyolove, who draws gorgeous Jojo fanart that y’all should check out, even if you’re not familiar with the series in fact, and loves this pair. 
Kisses somewhere between the cheek and corner of the mouth + accidentally turning your kissing friend’s shirt into a flowering vine, because Giorno’s stand powers are delightful. (although you probably would want to treat that little vine very gingerly and not, uh, inadvertently squash any part of it)
(If you want to know what the flowers/trees are:
Papaver rhoeas
Lavandula angustifolia
Calendula arvensis
Passiflora caerulea
Cupressus sempervirens
)
