(you should go read it)

Look it has come to my attention that a number of people I like and care about haven’t read Batman: Li’l Gotham. This is a travesty. So consider this my PSA about how you really should read Li’l Gotham. Maybe you passed it up because it was an all ages comic and you thought it would be too silly. Maybe it just flew under your radar. I’m not judging. I’m just telling you that you should go read it as soon as possible.

It’s Batfam headcanons the comic folks. 

You want the misadventures of the Bat boys trying to cook?

Scrabble night at the Batcave?

The Gotham City Sirens being cute?

The Batmobile’s back seat?

Meta humor?

An unexpected bout of feels?

Or just lots of Bruce being a dad?

Read Li’l Gotham.

The Flame Alchemist - fanart. I recently finished reading the FMA manga and I’m obsessed again with this freaking story.

I’ve been trying to draw Mustang for probably more than a month now and I finally made it. I’ve scrapped like 10 paintings of him so far jfc. Apparently the secret was to lay off the complicated lighting and just relax and draw. Anyway, not much else is needed to be said here. I like how this turned out and drawing the ignition glove was super fun^^ (i didn’t get to draw the lizard though :( ). Anyway, feels good to be back *single sparkle*

Summary:

Maestro Hux of the Erste Orden Sinfonie has survived the big gala concert and won over obstreperous piano virtuoso Kylo Ren and hopefully his board of directors too. But now Ren’s gone back to New York, and mysterious rumblings from the wings suggest that perhaps not all is as serene as it seems.

Notes:

This is for @ceruleancynic, with an enormous amount of love.

And because I’ve never been asked so many times for a sequel by so many people, and because let’s face it, I wanted to come back to this too.

Thanks to my section leaders: @byzantienne, @saltandlimes, @crashwong, @zombiebrainsoup, @kat2107, @schaloime, @skylocked, and every single one of you who boosted, recced, liked, commented (OH THE COMMENTS, I adore you all), kudosed, painted, or just came and talked to me about it. This was my own personal Unfinished Symphony for seven months and it would never have gotten over the line without you.

Happy birthday @the-garbage-chute !!!(I hope I got the day,oh well)
Elizabeth,forgive me if this is not awsome or fantastic or else(and I am still asking to myself why I drew you something when YOU are a goddess)
Anyway. I basically put as a comic this Kylux drabble you sent me by @smol-hux !
I know,now the “tragic moment” is over but this was too sweet! (Like you)
Buon compleanno!

Jokes aside, this isn’t that bad a compromise, if you think about it. The first normal solution would have been for Louis to spend thanksgiving with his son, at least a little part of it.
The second very normal option would have been for him to spend it with his girlfriend and her family, as we’re talking about a traditional US holidays that theoretically means a lot to her and nothing to him.
What we’re seeing might lack any kind of sense, but what’s new? Louis getting to spend some quality time with his family, avoiding two pretty unpleasant options and just having to deal with minor aspects of his very annoying stunt, now that’s a little new.

“Hurry up, Spider-Boy, or we will leave you!”

Despite the cold air that swirled around their hair, the sun was shining with full blast as the rays of light threatened to dip below the horizon. It washed Stark Tower in orange and pink, a light that complimented Natasha and Peter very well.

“How come you aren’t rushing her,” Peter mumbled twisting his arms as he walked into the stationed quinjet. The denim jacket he wore was a little stiff, considering he hadn’t touched it in almost a year. It didn’t feel as baggy as it used to, fitting closer to his taller, more muscular physique than it had when it was bought. He frowned when he sat down next to Sam Wilson, face etched in deep concentration.

The older man had taken quite a notice to it. “You’re not nervous, are you Spiderling?” his toothy grin was borderline malicious, obviously reveling in Peter’s discomfort. “Relax, Stark’s parties aren’t so bad. Besides, this one is for Tin Man,” he grumbled, referring to the metal-armed man of honor. “There’s no way this party is going to be any fun.”

How MC wins the families over

This is a continuation of “RFA++’s familes don’t like MC” which you should probably go read first. Just sayin’…..


Yoosung

  • Well, it turns out MC is actually some kind of super genius, she’s just really bad at doing school work
  • So when she’s talking with his parents one day, she casually mentions something she learned about quantum physics recently
  • They start talking a lot of random, deep academic subjects, and half the time, things go completely over one or the others head
  • Yoosung is able to keep up if only because she talks about this stuff at home all the time
  • He makes a half-joke about how MC has really helped him keep his grades up with all her random facts and crazy intelligence
  • Plus, she likes to change the wifi password and hide his gaming equipment when he needs to study
  • Instant respect

Jaehee

  • MC memorized everyone’s birthdays and bought them each a gift and sent it to them along with a card for each one
  • They’re all marked as “from Jaehee and MC” but it’s clear MC is the one sending them
  • After two years of this -despite the fact that Jaehee wasn’t even speaking to them- they sent a few gifts back along with an apology card
  • I mean, Jaehee and her family still don’t see each other, but they’re at least on good enough term to email from time to time

Zen

  • His parents are terrible actors, so MC knows right away that they don’t like her
  • To be fair, she doesn’t like them either
  • They’re snobby, plus she knows they used to put him down all the time about his looks
  • One day, when they’re all at dinner together, Zen’s mother begins ranting about how she has no idea where Zen’s coloring came from
  • Zen’s brother has the decency to try to quiet her down
  • Meanwhile MC speaks up and begins explaining the genetics of albinism and how she’s surprised they’re ignorant of such things considering they’re supposed to be highly educated individuals
  • She goes on to explain that, if Zen has kids, the only reason the kids would also be albino would be if MC had the genes for it as well
  • MC also tells them that she wrote a high school paper about albinism
  • After the dinner, his parents pull him aside as say that they like her
  • Zen says, “Good. Because I’m planning to marry her.”

Jumin

  • Mr. Chairman found out about the prenup
  • What it outlines is that, if at any point it should become clear MC is not faithful, she will get nothing in event of a divorce
  • In fact, she will basically signs away her ability to get anything in the event of a divorce or the death of her spouse
  • Okay, in the event of his death (so long as it is not under mysterious circumstances), she just enough to give Jumin the funeral he’d wish for, and then go get an affordable apartment and hold her over until she can get a job
  • Mr. Chairman is…. shocked that’s she so willing to give it all up
  • And he can see MC is a strong, positive influence on his son
  • When Jumin complains to him that he thinks this prenup is unreasonably unfair towards her, Mr. Chairman explains that, if nothing else, it’s a great way for her to prove that she’s marrying for love, not money
  • Jumin’s just concerned that something will happen to him, and she’ll be left with nothing
  • Mr. Chairman has no choice but to approve of MC now, and has it arranged with her and a lawyer to have the prenup changed so she gets a significant amount in the event of tragedy
  • She sticks with original prenup out of spite
  • Mr. Chairman is proud to have this girl as his future daughter-in-law
  • Plus, after she marries Jumin, she ends up helping the company significantly as both a figure head and an actual leader because of her business degree

Saeyoung

  • She brought ice cream, books, video games, and took Saeran for long walks in the park when he was feeling down
  • Okay, yeah, MC could be a little annoying or gross when she was with Saeyoung because, lets face it, they’re peas in a pod, but they’re in love, so whatever
  • Basically, Saeran was the one who went to Saeyoung and said, “If you don’t marry MC, I will, so get on it so I can have a sister.”
  • Saeyoung cheered and hugged Saeran so tight, he was afraid he was going to turn blue

V

  • “It’s bad enough I have to live in Rika’s shadow in the RFA, but with them, I understand. Rika was their friend, their ally, their supporter. But to you, she was just your sons fiancé and you met maybe five times? Knowing Jihyun, he probably didn’t tell you this because he didn’t want you to worry, but let me tell you a few things about Rika. She was a master manipulator, and abusive. She almost destroyed your sons career by blinding him, and he let her because he thought he was helping her. She did so much damage to him, mentally, emotionally, and physically, that he’s very lucky to be alive right now. So I don’t care if you don’t like me. Whether we stay together or not isn’t up to you. But don’t you EVER say that Rika was better for him. And please don’t compare me to her.”
  • After her little speech, MC stood up and walked out of the room to calm down (and prevent arguing)
  • V and his family were speechless
  • V was extremely proud of her
  • His family may not have liked her at the moment, but they respected her and couldn’t think of a reason to argue with her
  • Well, except to ask V, “Is what she said true?”

Saeran

  • Saeyoung finally approaches MC and talks to her about her involvement in Mint Eye
  • MC explains that she was kidnapped, tattooed, and chained to a wall while they attempted to brainwash her
  • Apparently, the way she acted in captivity reminded Saeran of himself as a child under the reign of their mother, so he made a deal with MC
  • She pretends to be brainwashed and does whatever he says, and he would free her
  • He knew Rika had a plan to infiltrate the RFA and Saeran volunteered MC to act in their place
  • It worked, got MC out and into the apartment
  • He honestly saved her from months of torture
  • She’s only considered a “former member” because she has the tattoo
  • Nothing more
  • Saeyoung feels guilty, but approves of her now because she’s something that his brother wants to protect

Watercast by @fishwrites is absolutely sublime. And you should go read it right now. I don’t think I’ve ever drawn 2 things from a fanfic within a week of each other before. I just adore merman Lance and Avian Keith, just the general concept is so neat. I’ve been trying to combine my traditional work with editing to get the bio-luminescent stuff going, but I’m not sure if I pulled it off.

Unedited straight watercolor painting and close-up of the real-life shimmer on Lance’s scales under the cut.
