out of curiosity, why is elsaclack's sleepwalking fic dedicated to you?
So, basically, Em and I worked on developing the ideas for Sleepwalking together. I am faaaairly sure, if memory serves me correctly, that I’d gotten the idea from a fic i read and, as one does, I immediately messaged Emily like GUESS WHAT AU MY GOBLIN BRAIN THOUGHT OF. A half hour later, Emily the Legend messaged me back saying “guess what fic ive just started to write”, and I cried
Thru the fic writing process, we talked back and forth abt scene concepts, snippets of dialogue, character introductions, etc. Like, Doug Judy and the Wuntch arc and stuff like that were a collaborative effort. I myself have actually done this several times with Big Fics – like, the captain america au was gifted to @parlegee on ao3, and the Doug Judy fic was gifted to @elsaclack, for pretty much the same reasons; they gave a lot of creative input into the story. Sleepwalking is a much bigger, more complex fic than those two, but the idea still stands.
However, a huge amount of it was Em herself, and I am in no way here trying to take that away – I just yelled excitedly at her whenever she asked for a proofreader/soundboard. Emily did all the writing, all the execution, and is an actual hero for it.
The Clayr saw me, the Wallmaker made me, the King quenched me, Abhorsen wields me.
Guess what book series ive just started? If anyone is unsure, please pick up Sabriel and start reading, its really good! I’m not very far in, and this is toootally unfinished and rough but i like the composition, its just knowing how to render it, lighting, mood etc. but meh. Plus i apparently need to add keys onto the coat/tunic/robes. Also, the bells need to be varied sizes, and, well, ok its riddled with inaccuracies, but you’ll just have to forgive me.
so yeah, so fan-art that isn’t pokemon and isn’t monsters. such a rarity!
