A couple of my “stay up wayyyy to late and play with screen caps” projects - what I do when I’m fed up with trying to create anything from the ground up. (Which is often, and a lot).
I don’t know why the tragic/angsty angle is my favorite one to work from, but it always has been. The sad. I like the sad. Don’t know why. Especially with a subject as beautiful and tragic as Loki - he is literally the *perfect* muse.
Although that first one - as heartbreaking as it is - some seriously inappropriate thoughts have crept in over it.
Loki you little shit. What have you done to me.
“‘Tell me about these tattoos,’ came his soft question. Sannaet opened her mouth and then closed it again when she realized she had no ready reply… . She shifted a little to bring one knee up and hug the pillow closer. What should she say?”
Well, lokiofmiddleearth I warned you that amatasera’s next illustration would be absolutely devastating – don’t you agree that it makes your heart stop?
This image goes with chapter 14 of my Loki fic A Walk-on Part in the War, and it left me speechless when she sent it to me this afternoon. Feel free to re-blog, so she gets all the props she deserves.
For those interested, here is a hopefully mobile-friendly chapter list to the story:
Happy Birthday to the man who taught me that my ceaseless optimism isn’t brainless, introduced me to The National & the one tea in the world that I don’t think tastes like dirty water, and last but not least *gave me a muse* - a muse that this long forgotten & atrophied “artist” didn’t even know she needed so badly. He has helped me be nicer to myself, and more myself - if that even makes any sense at all.
This particular Loki was made for the lovely writernotwaiting, for Chapter 10 of her story “A Walk on Part in the War” - if you haven’t read it, you should!
