Twenty two years have passed since the defeat of Pitch, and Jack lives alone, touch-starved, with only the company of a solitary Nightmare. One evening the Man in the Moon sets him on a path that will lead him to unexpected relationships, draw the attention of the Guardians to a new coalition of villains, and challenge Jack’s every notion of what it is to be good, evil, and what it is to live in the shadows.
so my friend told me to read this fic by @not-poignant and i was bored so i did and it turned out to be hella amazing so here’s a badly made trailer for it that’ll i’ll just leave here
ok so this is probably the starting point of quite a lot more augus scribbles that i’ll continue uploading as I clean out my sketchbook - so imma call it a ‘series’ and hope it’ll help me keep motivated. i think we all know that augus belongs to @not-poignant and i can’t stop thinking about how much i love him - that being said i only read FTDWR & ISWF and not the other parts of the SALverse (nor the Fae Tales - yes shame on me i know) and my augus is always based on that–
Hello, I'm just another anonymous reader that absolutely loves your work. During the first draft of this, I detailed how much, but I ran out of room before even finishing about a quarter of those details, let alone actually getting to the main point. So, um, I have a question. Has anyone ever written an AU based off of how Jack could have been a fae (as mentioned in FDWR/ISWF)? Because it was such an interesting detail. I find writing hard, but the idea is fascinating. Just wondering.
I’m pretty sure fae!Jack fics exist, but they’re not connected to the SALverse or the headcanon there. And I don’t read many RotG fics (I am very picky about my fae representation, lol).
But yeah, nothing connected to FtDWR/ISWF to my knowledge. A lot of people talked about it for a while, but I’m not sure anyone was thinking of writing something that followed on from it. I think, like you, they just found the idea really fascinating. :)
I was doing a casual stalking of your blog and I found a response where you said you were doing a writers commentary of chapter 21 of FtDwR. Did you ever post it or was it just never done?
Omg that takes me back, anon <3
I did end up doing it! I still have the file on my computer. I can’t remember where I ended up putting those early ones though. Later commentaries became Patreon exclusives (though admittedly they weren’t done for fanfiction).
I’m not sure how I ended up sharing it, and it could’ve been just really badly tagged, but here’s the Dropbox link if you want to take a look.
Tarantism - The urge to overcome melancholy by dancing.
Pitch Black/Jack Frost
(I got two requests for this! Same word, same pairing! Guess two of you really want to see Jack and Pitch dance.)
(SALverse, basically fluff)
It was one of those days.
The words didn’t quite capture the heaviness of it. He didn’t have these days so often anymore. They tended to come on the backs of dreams about his old world, his old life – how many old lives did he have now? The one as the Nightmare King. The one as Pitch. The one as Kozmotis. The one as Kozmotis pre-Seraphina. The one as Kozmotis post-Seraphina.
This time, he’d dreamt about the celebrations after the successful initiation ceremony into becoming a golden warrior. It had been a rocky affair, he’d gone deeper into the darkness than the others and his supervisor had known it and carefully said nothing after seeing the look in Pitch’s eyes. So Pitch had tried to embrace the vivacity of his colleagues and peers, drinking as vigorously as they, and yet in the depths of him a darkness whispered quietly.
ok i was listening to your ftdwr playlist and it like starts off SUPER dramatic with violins and then it goes slow and almost mournful then a little adventurous BUT THEN upbeat lil ukulele songs- and then it gets a little sad again. Then it just sort of mellows down into a sad song. I guess it's like jack. and how he feels throughout ftdwr. That was a really interesting experience to have it sort of aligned to the book rather than taking the overall emotion and creating a playlist based on that.
I do actually for the most part try and arc a playlist so it’s both evocative of certain feelings I relate to the character, but also links back to the character’s or story’s journey. Which, in some cases, means the playlist can be really spoilery, lol.
I mean some are just straight up ambience, but for the most part a playlist is arranged for me to feel like the way a story might progress. Which means sometimes when I’m writing a certain chapter, instead of listening to the playlist, I might just listen to the same two songs on loop over and over again. :D But ahhh, thank you for writing this! It’s so cool to be able to share that side of things with people and have them see that in the music, and I’m not sure anyone else had before.
some WIP pics of that comic. remember that comic? yeeaaaahhh…
still have a bit to do; fix Tooth’s eyes in second panel she was derpin a little , change Pitch’s skin tone possibly, redraw Pitch in last three panels , finish backgrounds , tone down that red stained glass in the 5th panel. darken all the dialog to the same color, touch up speach bubbles, finish Tooth’s feather shading & wings on all but the last panel, I’ll probably think of more later.
Sufficient to say, I have super respect for people who do this for a living.
Pitch and Tooth; They’re so gonna end up being BFF’s
