The Shadows and Light Series


augus each uisge series - #1

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– 

please click pictures for better quality T°T 


“Are you ready ?“ she asked, spinning the chamber.
Kell gazed through the gate at the waiting castle. "No.”
At that, she offered him the sharpest edge of a grin.
“Good,” she said. “The ones who think they’re ready always end up dead.”

okay, time to get back to writing.


Well, I know @klapolloweek is practically over, but I needed to finish this. The theme was for day 7: Formal. The pic’s specific theme depends on your own interpretation~

I couldn’t decide which one looked better, so I put both haha 

End of the day practice. Was playing with perspective (urgh actually reading books to learn that proper instead of eyeballing it) and felt like drawing some animals/not really human? stuff. Finding the right balance for the character was a pain but I think it worked out okay? Meh, sleep time. Work’s been a bitch. 

(I think I may be spamming the Shadows and Light fanart thing, but there are some really interesting original characters I haven’t seen much ie the creatures and stuff. So here have a Gulvi.)

From rhinocio‘s Trust: A Trainee’s Manual on Wardrobe Malfunction and Personal Armory:

The sky-scraping ceiling of the hall they practiced in became as far away as the haze of Homeworld’s atmosphere; the noise around them dulled in Sapphire’s ears until it could have been the pleasant whisper of Eritian wind. Even the humming cerulean barrier that caged her with this stocky gem blurred out of her vision…

….Don’t watch their eyes, she reminded herself, finding it all the more difficult as the red gem lost themself in the battle and their features began to soften. Their pert nose still scrunched, but with concentration, not anger; their thin lips were almost smiling.

Housekeeping: Updates and ISWF info.

Hi folks,

This is just a quick housekeeping message to let everyone know that I will be *trying* to go back to slower updates now that things are on a slightly more hopeful note in ISWF (i.e. closer to once a week, as opposed to this completely unsustainable once every two or three days).

Partly this is because I need to slow down, I can’t remember the last time I didn’t have a day where I didn’t actually write, and I need to take some days off more often for my health. And partly this is because it is a complex plot, and I want to take some more time plotting things out. :) Since I’ve always maintained I want to stick to mostly ‘once a week’ updates, this isn’t really a surprise, so much as just…going back to what I keep saying I’ll do. Lol. We’ll see if I can do it though, I’m not good at relaxing. Plus I really want to write ISWF! Hehehe.

I apologise for being behind on my inbox, and also on some emails. I could never, ever, ever have predicted this fic would get so popular, and had no idea that one day I’d genuinely have to figure out how to balance all of this stuff! It’s good for me though to learn, and hopefully slowing down with ISWF overall means I can get to everyone’s stuff more promptly. :) I can’t reply to *everything*, but I do try and get around to most things. :D

Some quick, general answers to some questions I’ve been getting a bit in reviews/asks, under the cut because SPOILERS:
