My friends from BYU successfully Kickstarted the second volume of their art anthology Reality Not Included! One of the project heads, Christopher Hayes, asked me to create an 18" poster that would be given to backers.

While searching for inspiration, I stumbled upon a 1924 cover of La Vie Parisienne by George Leonnec. I knew at that moment I needed to paint its companion.

So here’s to impossible couples and finding love in strange places! Just don’t think about the logistics of this particular relationship. Things get weird. Fast.

my job is fucking with my schedule

like i was depending on my hours this week being normal, but because i requested off one day this week, i’m being punished by not being on the schedule

hopefully my second set of jobs comes through and i can start working those soon and be done with where i work now, but until then could y’all maybe throw some extra cash my way so that i can afford to go to therapy and deal with my dangerous and volatile relationship with sex, get diagnosed and see the in house psychologist at my clinic? i’ve only gone to two appointments, and i still owe them 50$, which is all i have in my bank account rn

i also need to start new birth control, and have money to get back and forth to work and my interviews while my job is fucking around

kikismisandryservice@gmail.com is my paypal email, and cash.me/$Clemm is my squarecash account

i’m also making winter infinity scarves, and offering art commissions here

my other post was getting kind of bulky so here’s an update, as well as all related info. thanks everyone

man, i love jasper and peridot so much just slay me rn

i noticed jaspers star is kind of. not. centered. and it bothered me but then i figured u kno what she probably would do it on purpose anyway to fuck w/ pearl and (probably) peridot

i also strive to give peridot a somewhat more boyish frame

ahhoz,hogy boldog legyél el kell fogadnod magad és nem mások véleménye szerint kell élned,hiszen felesleges.nem ők fognak tükörbe nézni,vagy évek múlva visszatekinteni a TE életedbe,hogy azt mondják,"örülök,hogy így élt".ez csakis a tiéd.minden amit csinálsz,amit érzel,amit gondolsz.csak a tiéd.és hogy ők mit gondolnak?le kell sz*rni...

i’ve seen a few callous comments and it’s no one i’m following specifically here but i need to say something to anyone underestimating how big the fire in fort mac is rn

i was one of the roughly 100,000+ people evacuated during those massive southern alberta floods a few years back. Yes, that was more people than the roughly 88,000 people now. 

Thing is, though, that 100,000 of us? we didn’t all come from the same place. This 88,000 people from one city. the entire city is on fire. this is an entire city–a BIG city by albertan standards gone from every single one of their homes because the whole city is on fire. 1600 buildings have been decimated so far and it’s still growing. it’s going to keep getting bigger.

this fire is not normal. this is not routine evacuation. don’t underestimate what an entire city being destroyed is going to do for the future just because more people were displaced in those floods.

  • Okay im sorry but im gonna do this as bullet point thingy
  • Bc this is what inspires me rn
  • I just feel like it flows better this way
  • And this request has been sitting here forever
  • I mean it’s the first in our inbox
  • And it was there when Mariah and I joined
  • And the inbox had already like 60 asks
  • Okay sorry no more rambling
  • Onto this request
  • So like I’m assuming this isn’t an AU and Seungcheol got injured on a stage or something
  • Like, remember the MAMA stage when he tripped on Vernon’s head?
  • Yeah something like that
  • Like he fell off stage bc he tripped on a misplaced wire and hit his head pretty hard
  • So he’s injured and he has to stay in the hospital for a while to get regular check-ups and stuff
  • And you work in the hospital as a nurse
  • Like you work the evening/night shift okay
  • And this guy comes in, with a concussion and he’s kind of out of it
  • And there are so many people with him
  • You’re like “y’all need to get out of here”
  • Way too crowded okay you guys are all leaving even though you’re cute (esp you, wow you a cutie hum)
  • So the first time you walk into Seungcheol’s room he’s alone or like only with one of their managers
  • I don’t remember their names I’m sorry and im too lazy to look it up
  • So you come in and the doctor is there and Seungcheol is kind of out of it
  • Like he’s got a pretty serious concussion
  • So while the doctor talks to their manager about his condition and kinda explains what’s going on
  • You install all this stuff and check Cheol’s vitals like his blood pressure and maybe you fix his pillows or smth
  • Idk okay
  • But he’s clearly fazed and he looks at you and he’s like
  • “… Hi. I’m Seungcheol.”
  • And so you just kindly smile and tell him your name
  • And he tells you you’re pretty while you’re reaching over and getting closer to him to adjust his pillows and make sure he’ll be comfy for the night
  • And suddenly his cardiac monitor starts to go faster
  • And at first he doesn’t realize what’s happening so he’s just like what?
  • So you don’t say anything but you blush bc you’re pretty sure you know what’s happening
  • Your eyes meet and you suddenly jump back and look at other stuff
  • When you glance at him, Seungcheol is looking down, blushing
  • His heartbeat is slowly going back to normal
  • You don’t say a word and when you’re finished, you bolt out of the room
  • once you’re out of the room you’re like omg what
  • did you make this happen?
  • did you make this cute boy’s heart go faster like that?
  • but that doesn’t make any sense bc why would an idol (yeah he’s an idol what you’re taking care of an idol) find you attractive like that?
  • and so you just shake it off (shake it off sorry i just got this image of the hillywood show) and forget about it for the night and go home
  • you come back the day after
  • Since he’s got quite a serious concussion and possibly some injury in his back, seungcheol has to stay in for a few days
  • you’re on duty for pretty much everyday of his stay (bc that’s how nurses roll y’all they never actually stop working)
  • and you happen to have to take care of him bc he’s on your floor
  • and every time you come in and you bring him meds or check his vitals, his cardiac monitor goes faster
  • at first cheol turned red and was a bit embarrassed about it
  • but by the fifth time he just doesn’t say anything and looks at you with a little smirk
  • especially since you’re so flustered every  time
  • you thought it might be something wrong with the machines, since you do have the bad tendency to forget your phone in your pocket after your break oops
  • and so once you made sure to leave your phone and anything that wasn’t organic in your locker before going in his room
  • but as soon as you enter and walk up to his bed, the steady heartbeat starts going faster
  • it’s not beating as erratically as it was the first time, but it’s noticeably faster
  • at this point, you’re so embarrassed and confused that you don’t even look at him bc you know you’ll turn beet red
  • so you hand him his meds and get out of the room as fast as you can
  • but you still catch seungcheol’s eyes and he’s smirking at you
  • and you really love hate it
  • it’s making you all flustered and confused and how dare this boy with a concussion and a possibly damaged spine sorry coups try to be charming
  • also how does he manage to be charming in a hospital gown?
  • that is very rude
  • anyways, moving on
  • one time you were getting out of the room and one of your colleague saw your red face and was like what’s up omg
  • and it just so happens that they’re a close friend so you tell them about what’s been happening
  • and they just laugh at you
  • literally they start laughing and they don’t stop and tears are pearling in their eyes and you’re standing in the corridor, scowling down at your so called friend
  • “it’s not funny, stop laughing, you dick
  • “that is the most amazing thing i’ve ever heard omg”
  • “istg imma kick you if you don’t stop”
  • anyways you’re still not convinced this thing is about you, specifically
  • so you manage to convince your colleague/friend to go in instead of you once
  • so they go and when they come back they’re like
  • “well that was disappointing”
  • “???”
  • turns out he didn’t even flinch
  • he even asked about you
  • and your friend can’t help but be a bit offended bc excuse they’re hot too
  • but that’s another story
  • so what you thought would be a good idea turns out to be a horrible idea bc now you’re sure you’re the one causing his heartbeat to go faster
  • so you’re red to the ears even before going in his room the next time you have to go check on him
  • “okay y/n calm the fuck down this is your job you are a nurse you can do this”
  • you walk in and seungcheol is sitting on the edge of his bed and you’re like
  • “what the hell do you think you’re doing mister?!???!!?”
  • your embarrassment is forgotten in half a second
  • and he says his legs are heavy and he wants to go for a walk
  • and you’re like “noooooo sir that is not an option you are injured and your back won’t get better if you walk around like a fool now go back in bed”
  • and seungcheol pouts at you
  • like
  • he literally pouts and gives you his best doe eyes rip you
  • “please?”
  • and you’re shook
  • what the actual fuck
  • that boy has no right of using aegyo to get what he wants from you
  • you almost give in bc you’re so taken aback but you a strong person and you stand your ground
  • you walk towards him and you grab him gently by the shoulders and push him back into the mattress
  • as soon as you touch him and get closer to make him lie down, the cardiac monitor starts speeding up behind you
  • but this time you’re like hell no boy you are staying down and you are calming yourself
  • i may be embarrassed but im also a nurse and rn you need to lie down
  • so you put him back into bed and even fluff his pillows
  • all while scolding him bc smh this boy why would he want to take a walk when he has a back injury
  • when you’re done, seungcheol smiles at you and wow
  • has he ever smiled at you like that
  • like his teeth are showing and his eyes are crinkling 9:15 amirite
  • suddenly he seems younger and a lot more handsome and it’s like he’s glowing
  • you’re so surprised but you smile in return
  • and you just share this moment and take the time to appreciate it
  • you stand up straight and smile fondly
  • “alright, don’t ever do this again unless you’ve been told you could walk around”
  • “sure thing, y/n”
  • and he winks at you playfully and you walk out feeling giddy and giggly and ooh god what is happening to you
  • are you getting the feelings? for onE OF YOUR PATIENTS?
  • well you aren’t a doctor i guess it’s not illegal but STILL
  • you’re like ??!!?!?!?!!!
  • and you met him like 4 days ago what is this
  • but now you catch yourself smiling when you think about him and even laughing when you think about the cardiac monitor incidents
  • and so you come in the next evening and you grab a dinner tray and go into seungcheol’s room
  • but he’s not there
  • instead, there’s an elderly man sitting up in the bed, his hand neatly folded in his lap
  • he’s looking outside the window
  • at first you’re disappointed bc you’ve become used to your visits to seungcheol
  • his smile always made you warm and he somehow made you feel beautiful
  • nonetheless, you smile and approach the man 
  • you’re still a nurse, dammit
  • “good evening, i’m here with your dinner”
  • the man looks at you and hesitates
  • “are you y/n?”
  • “um.. yes… yes, i am.”
  • you’re a bit surprised - why would this man know who you are?
  • he reaches over to the cardiac monitor and snatches a folded paper from it
  • as you put his dinner down, he hands it to you
  • “your name was written on it. i guess the person before me left it for you”
  • you thank the man and take the piece of paper from his hands
  • you wait until you’re out of the room before unfolding and reading it
  • the handwriting is a bit messy, but you recognize an effort into making it readable
  • there’s a little heart on the top and below is written
  • “you make my heart race. -s”
  • a phone number follows

Betcha thought they were gonna fight, didn’t you?

This was the comics portion of my contribution to Reality Not Included Volume 2. The other part of my contribution was my own blood, sweat, and tears. The book is all soggy now.

If you want your very own copy of the gorgeous anthology this comic was printed in (alongside many finer examples of comic and illustrative art) you can buy print copies of both RNI 1 and RNI 2 here! If you hate physical media you can purchase digital copies here!
