Day 22: In battle, side-by-side

Quick doodle for this theme. I was going to draw Fi wielding Ghirahim but right now I’m too lazy. I’ll draw that on a later date.

Ghirahim and Fi are both swords so while they can fight side-by-side they can also just wield each other in battle, although Ghirahim likes to lick Fi a lot when she’s in sword form and Fi complains that Ghirahim is too heavy.

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 27-On one of their birthdays

Disclaimer: I have no idea how the Performer profession in the Pokemon world works and later this probably isn’t going to be true but this headcanon that affects the current queen only is inspired by the young girl idol culture that the performers were more than likely based off of. Basically once the young girls become women, it used to be 18 but I’m not sure if that’s the age anymore they must give up being an idol

Another idol reference I make is dating, which they aren’t allowed to do because they have to be pure. Sometimes an idol’s career is over once it’s found out they do have a romantic partner even holding hands can get them in trouble. This has caused some to be very sneaky about relationships and hide them from their agency.

Japanese idol culture is fascinating 



“Mademoiselle Elle!” The knocking on her door barely registered on the performer’s ears as she sat on the bed in a ball, knees curled into her chest. Why. Why did it have to come already? She was dreading this day for years and now it was here. Please. Please just go away she wanted to be left alone.

But the knocking continued “Mademoiselle! You have a phone call!”   

She could just ignore him. She didn’t want to face reality right now. But she couldn’t just ignore whoever was on the other line, that would be rude. Sighing she walked to the door and opened it.

“Oh good! As I was saying there is someone on the other line asking for you.” Pierre smiled, “You have a little time before your performance mademoiselle, you shouldn’t keep your friend waiting.”

She nodded and slightly walked over to the video phone in the other room.

“Happy Birthday Elle!” Even the smiling face of her favorite person in the world wasn’t enough to cheer her up. He frowned, “My goodness have you been crying?!”

“It’s that easy to tell huh? She wiped at her eyes, “Great. I have to perform soon and I don’t think I can in this condition…”

“What’s wrong, love?”

“I’m old.”

He crossed his arms and narrowed his eyes, “You think 18 is old?”

Well he was a couple of months older than her he did have reason to be offended, “I don’t no, but everyone else does.”

Now he looked confused, “What do you mean?”

“I can no longer be Kalos Queen anymore.” Tears started to well up, “This is my last and final p-performance…” She bit her lip she couldn’t cry not again. She had to be strong.

“Correct me if wrong I’m but-” Dento put a hand on his chin, “I thought you only lost the title if someone beat you in a Master Class?”

“You’re right but…you also lose it the minute you turn 18. Eighteen is considered an adult, too old to be an idol and role model for young girls. At 18 if you haven’t been beaten you’re forced to resign so a fresher talent and younger girl can take your place.” She gripped at the frills of her dress, “And so with my 18th birthday, as of now…I’m no longer the Kalos Queen.” A couple of tears did fall as her shoulders trembled.


“I’m sorry…” She sniffed, “I didn’t want you to see me like this.”

“It’s all right to cry and you know that.” He sighed,  “If anything you should be proud.” He smiled, “You were able to hold your title the whole time without being defeated and that’s very impressive.”

She tried to smile, “I guess you’re right. Lots of girls only hold the title for a year.”

“See that shows how incredible you are. And-” He continued, “You want Serena to be Kalos Queen don’t you?”

“I do.” She thought of the honey blonde haired girl and friend and remembered her many performances. “Serena would be a great Kalos Queen.”

“Finally…” He held up a finger, “Think of everything you detested about your title. Always being on call, never having any free time, having to wear disguises when you go out in public in fear of being recognized, and all the rules; some of which you broke need I remind you.” He looked away and muttered, “We’re both actually really lucky we were never caught.”

He had a point. She did hate always being on call, having no free time, wearing disguises and of course the rules. That she broke. In her defense though the major one she broke was the queen not allowed to date and that was a really silly rule, if you date you aren’t pure really? The second was not allowed to use a stunt double and the boyfriend in question was the stunt double when she was too sick to perform. And some others here and there but Xerneas those rules were pointless. Now that she didn’t have the no dating rule over her head they could be more public. And he was right but…but…

“I just feel like everything is over. Like I have nowhere to go from here. What am I going to do now?”

“You’re only 18, you have time to figure it out. It’s not over at all. Rather it’s a new act, a new section in your life. You can use everything you learned as performer and Kalos Queen as you move forward toward a new goal and dream!”

“I guess.” She sighed and looked down again, “But this is hard you know? The very thought of giving my last and final performance and having to step down.  It…” She gritted her teeth and looked down, “It really hurts.”

“Smile, Elle.”

She looked up at him as he smiled sweetly at her. “After all a smile is the secret to being a cute girl,” He winked, “Isn’t it?”

Her eyes widened and she slowly was able to smile. He used the very advice she gave performers on her. “Yes. It is.”

“Besides.” He added and put a hand on his chest, “No matter what happens, you’ll always be my queen~

“D-Dento…” Her eyes softened and a light blush dusted her cheeks, he was a goofball but he could be so charming sometimes.

“This just means I don’t have to share you anymore.”

She giggled, feeling a little better, “Really this is the thing you’re the most excited for isn’t it?”

He laughed and rubbed the back of his neck nervously, “That or no longer being a rule breaker…”

“Mademoiselle?” Pierre poked his head in, “You have to be on stage soon, try to wrap it up.”

“Thanks for talking with me I really appreciate it. It’s just what I needed.” 

“Anytime. I’m glad to see you’re giving off a flavor more like yourself.”

“Hey um…” she pressed her fingers together nervously, “Since I’m going to have more free time now, do you think I can come to Unova and spend some time with you?”

“Of course! You’re always welcome here.”


“I suppose it’s time to let you go. Good luck out there. It’s performance time!” He spun around, “Try to enjoy your special day; it is your birthday after all! I know it’s going to be hard but smile and give them the best show you can. You’ll be just fine!”

They said their goodbyes and Elle headed for the stage as the curtain rose after this performance she’d no longer be the Kalos Queen. That chapter of her life was over. But he was right it was a new beginning for whatever was next. And she was ready.

“And so for her last and final performance as the Kalos Queen, Mademoiselle Elle!”

Day 27: On One of their Birthdays

[previous] [next]

Perry baked the cake, Laura just stuck 335 candles into it (plus one for good luck). LaF and JP borrowed the banner from the Zetas and modified it a little. Danny doesn’t trust Laura with matches so she did the honor of lighting the candles on fire.

Also halfway through drawing this I started to get feels because Carm has probably had so many lonely, miserable birthdays that she probably hates celebrating it and doesn’t make a big fuss about it and this may be the first time in centuries that she’s had friends who care enough to get her a cake and decorations and presents and don’t look at me i’m an emotional wreck

Day 28: Doing Something Ridiculous

[previous] [next]

Maybe a wholesome round of Cards Against Humanity wasn’t the best choice for game night. LaF and Perry are ruthless when it comes to embarrassing Carmilla. (loosely inspired by this comic)

dorkiangrey​ this is all your fault.

Check out my sideblog carmsagainsthumanity​ for instructions on how to play Carmilla Cards Against Humanity ;)

Day 18: Doing Something Together

[previous] [next]

“Watching someone you think is a sweet cinnamon roll turn into a sinnamon roll when playing video games is extremely endearing.” – Kaitlyn Alexander (kbearluna)

Laura is that person who picks Rainbow Road and gets super intense about it. Carmilla is still getting accustomed to the whole video games thing. 

Thanks carmillasleatherpants and warriorprincess1698 for helping me come up with this one :)

Day 22. In battle, side-by-side

“Damn it, Portugal, I can’t see anything like this!”
‘Trust me, you’re better off not seeing it…’

NedPort. They got rudely interrupted while ~negotiating truce details~ and rushed outside, ready for a fight. But Port did not sign up for fights with sea monsters (he had enough of that in the 15th century, thanks), so he’ll guide Ned through a ‘strategic withdrawal’ by pulling on his hair like in Ratatouille
