[Regrettably from cause of snow and frost, we find that of you are sadly lost.]I CURRENTLY HAVE A SKETCH SALE GOING ON ($3 AND UP) TO HELP BACK THE LEYLINES PROJECT. CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE.
SCREEN CAP WHAT /YOU'RE/ LISTENING TO. DO IT! And if you use a program that counts how many times songs are played compile the list so that it shows the most played to the least played and screencap the first ten on the list.
(Running Up That Hill: Placebo)
Top Ten Most Played:
(For Soren: A Slight Breeze, Flux: Bloc Party, Russia: Ramona Falls, La La: Verve Pipe, Say You Love Me: Velvet Code, Birdhouse In Your Soul: They Might Be Giants, Villains: Verve Pipe, Symphony No. 7: Beethoven, Break On Through: The Doors, Swan Swan H: R.E.M.)
Woah, man. Verve Pipe’s on there twice. Usually I don’t have bands up there more than once.
Print screen the menu that pops up when you hit 'start'.
Nothing too exciting here.
Save perhaps the knowledge that I like recording and making music and then hiding it so no one will know.
I do think the Falsi and Blasphimer interactions are cute.
I think so too.
But I’m just waiting for everything to go wrong.
Cathren Athren for Ria. (This is how Falsi sees him 24/7.)
A screaming bird for Val. (
It’s a parahuman.)
A snake for Aeo.
Cleops for Grendel.
Croft Kalo for Spire. (Speaking of which, I was stopped by a train the other day [that hasn’t happened for awhile] and I was looking at the graffiti on it as it passed and a bit of it said CALOW and I thought ZACK YOU DOPE YOU SPELLED IT WRONG.)
Enyon cats for Aly who, after I said that I didn’t think I could draw Detti from memory, asked for either Septimus or a cat. Turns out I don’t know what the eff cats look like from memory either, so I drew a quick Septimus sketch too.
Thank you for the requests, guys.
Matthias has a collection of grass. He lovingly tapes the little bits of green into a scrap book. This was before the fire. He's never been able to step on grass without crying now, only he no longer remembers why.
Wow, I read that as ‘is a collection of grass’ and I was imagining him as this grass monster which was pretty cool but no where near as funny as what you actually wrote.
and it’s canon that he can’t step on grass without crying now
Junus invented the iPhone but Jobs stole his idea. Junus never lived it down.
Jesse is a merman who was tricked by a sea witch into getting legs. (See, it makes sense, because in water his IMPRESSIVE ENDOWMENT is pretty easy to manage but ON LAND not so much.) The sea witch was angry at him because he tried to tidy up her kelp garden and she liked it messy.
I can't find the posts you made for your pirate-world and I can't read my writing (Akaseth? Akweth?) but for the place Helmut and Septimus and such come from is the water all mostly salt? Or do they have some sort of crazy freshwater oceans? Where does most of the freshwater come from (or do the people there have an ability to drink salt water)? And are there any religions or interesting folktales specific to that world or any of its places?
It is AKWETH. Which is a name I don’t really like, but that’s still its name.
And yes, the oceans are all saltwater oceans. Most of the freshwater would come from inland, from lakes and streams and melting mountain ice- and they do have the knowledge and ability of how to purify salt water. In fact, with the amount of salt water on the planet, they probably have a even more methods to do so than we would.
There are folktales and religions, but before I talk about them I should note that during the present time period, it is an age of SCIENCE AND PROGREEEESSION and believing in mythologies is often ridiculed. Many of the religions are based around a similar pantheon of water based gods, and many of the morals are based around the idea that if you are not a productive citizen the ocean will destroy everything you love.
There is at least one interesting religion based on the idea that if the pantheon of gods are mainly to do with water, then maybe the creatures that live in the ocean are “god’s children” and not themselves, so they are meant to serve instead of dominate. This may be where the part of the misnomer of a name, godfish, came to be for the people like Axiom.
I have no clue why this just came to mind but how often does Jesse need to shave under normal circumstances? (Since his doesn't grow at a "normal speed" and probably doesn't suffer from the 5o'clock shadow.) And how does he feel about facial hair on other men (aesthetically and if he has to get cuddling with their scratchy-beard face)?
LIKE ONCE EVERY FIVE YEARS.
Okay, not that long.
The inability to grow hair very well is actually a trait that was Riord’s, pre-possession. Before being overtaken by Jesse, he was often referred to as something similar to Riord the Boy because of his hairless baby face. It doesn’t help that their people usually get like full beards by the age of twelve, but Riord was easy going and thought the nickname was great and matched his energetic personality. Post-possession, Riord gained some nice facial hair only because he didn’t care for years about how scraggly it looks while it’s coming in.
Anyhow, before I get totally away from the answer, Jesse shaves about once a week or once every other week. He gets this peach kinda fuzz that comes in that he doesn’t particularly like, so he makes sure his face is smooth as he can.
And Jesse likes variation with people, so facial hair is pretty awesome. Just as long as they keep proper hygiene and there’s not like soup in the hair from weeks ago or something. He probably couldn’t keep his hands away from a nicely trimmed beard on a lover and would keep running his hands over it like a creeper or something.
Does Viviel try to make other things right? Does she have any sort of tendencies that reflect that or does it mostly come into play when she's at work? And in the drawing you've posted of her and her brother they both look... I'm not sure, like there's something off or wrong with them - deranged almost - so are they entirely human themselves? Or is there something about them that's off or unstable? Or were they just drawn like that for ATMOSPHERIC ANTAGONIST PURPOSES?
Yes she does, to both of your first two questions. This isn’t quite a visible trait all of the time, but it does come up a bit in Viviel’s interactions with her brother. Though she does think he’s a dolt, she does fuss over him a lot. Often tries to make sure he looks his best (though he never does), tries to convince him to cut his hair (psht, as if), tells him to stand up straight, wash your hands, don’t use that kind of language, and oh for god’s sake stop curling your lip like that.
I should note that I’m not sure if Viviel considers “right” more of what is good or more of what is perfect. Or maybe it’s a touch of both for her.
And, unless it’s for something not as serious like Girl and Graw’s design, I tend not to draw things just because of their aesthetic (or lack thereof) value. The same goes for Viviel and her brother. They are both completely human but, like the protagonist, have some interesting interactions and relationships with the spiritual. For Viviel’s brother, I would consider him less “deranged” and more “uncontrolled.” This, in part, comes from growing up in a home where there was not a huge amount of adult influence or discipline on his raising. Another part comes from his own interactions with the spiritual, particularly demons. He tends to lack civilized manners when he opens his mouth and his interactions can be a touch feral.
For Viviel, she doesn’t have a big sense of humor. Everything is serious because that’s the way life is. She’s also big on observing- if she blinks SHE MIGHT MISS SOMETHING. So she’s often wide-eyed, trying to take everything in. But that is combined with the furrowed brows since she is silently judging everything at the same time.
Thank you for the question!
How're you feeling today? Keeping things down?
Yes! I’m feeling great and I was able to do a lot of gardening and yardwork today and eat. My gosh, being able to eat was great.
Just got back from the china buffet and I think I overate, but gosh it was still nice.
It has to be somewhere. I know I remember it - which means it /has/ to be written somewhere.
I think I had it on elusivehollow, so it went down with the rest of that ship.
salutes sadly for a moment
Sometime I’ll make an organized folder for my dream journals or somefink.
