Heartstrings

7

sooo thanks to reading heartstrings by @taylordraws i was up til 3am doodling this garbage. god help my lost soul.

also i’d been talking to @littleblackchat all day about it and she was designing up what she imagined Mari’s dress from chapter 3 looked like, and I doodled this version based on her descriptions and early doodles of it xD so it’s a little different from the one she posted. Also I pointed out that the keyhole in the dress was perfect for Adrien in that scene, since he put his hand there and gyid7573943778hsjdfj IMAGINE IT GUYS imagine it

Happy New Year!

Yuss, got it done. High five! I said most of what I wanted to say to close out the year back in the Christmas post, so I’ll try to keep this short.

My family has taken to doing quiet New Year’s celebrations, watching a movie and snacking as midnight approaches. Whether you’re out partying the year away, resting easy at home, or something in between, I hope that all of you are well. 2017 has not been a kind year to far too many people. But through it all, I have also seen us lend each other strength and support. I hope that, as this year reaches its end, we can look to 2018 with optimism, and the drive to make it better. 

I worry at times that expressing my thanks too often will make it sound insincere, but I really am glad to have you all as my readers. Your support, your encouragement, and your participation in the Academy make it something truly special. I have never had to worry about who I’m going to upset with the next post, or what’s waiting for me in my inbox. You have been kind, wonderful people, and it makes all the difference. (I know there are many asks and messages that I get that don’t get into the Academy, and I’m sorry for that. I’m not ignoring anyone, I just can’t get to all of them.)

I hope for your continued support in the coming year, and I hope you will continue to support and be supported by those around you. Thank you, everyone, for all that you do. I will see you over the horizon.

Best regards,

Esuka, Dean of Undergraduates, CAoM
