~Remember, we all stumble. Every one of us. That’s why it’s a comfort to go hand in hand~

I dunno, these two both start pretty lonely/misunderstood, feel the weight of their selfish choices and mistakes, face fear for the sake of others despite their own terror, and both release their pride and find real connection and support by the end of their respective storylines

(Jarida Week) ~D A Y THREE- LOST AND FOUND.

“We were strangers starting on a journey, never dreaming what we would have to go through//No one told me I was going to find you, unexpected what you did to my heart" 

Did something based off my Cupid!au ;w;. This is post after Merida accepts her center and “feelings” for a certain guardian of fun. Her design was given to her by arcanabreak​ who inspired this idea. Give full credit to her drawing here (x). See? Happy stuff! :’D

Day 3: Lost and Found.  

“So what’s your name?”
“Merida.  What’s yers?”
“Jackson… why do you talk weird?”
“I don’ talk weird!”
“Yeah you do!  Do you have an accent or something?”
“No, yer the one with the accent!”
“We’re in america though, I talk like a normal american.  You don’t talk like one though.  Where are you from?”
“Ahm from Scotland.”
“Really?  Does your dad wear a kilt?”
“Sometimes on special days he does, like celebrations.”
“Do you wear a kilt?”
“Haha, no i don’t!  Kilts are for
boys, silly!”
“Oh… but wait, if you’re scottish, how come you’re not wearing that stripy stuff?”
“…
stripy stuff?”
“You know… uh… plad!”
“… Um, jus’ because Ahm Scottish dosnae mean I wear plad all the time, ye idiot.”
“I’m not an idiot!”
“Yeah ye are.”
“No Im not, I’m really smart!”
“Wha’s three-times-three?”
“Six.”
“Idiot.”


Drawing little Jack was surprisingly fun! :D (look, he’s got a missing tooth!!)  I suddenly want to draw more of him :3

Also, if there’s one thing I’ve noticed about myself, it’s that my comic strips are extremely lazy.  I do bigger, single pictures better.  :/  Oh well, hope you guys liked this lil strip anyways :)

(Jarida Week) ~D A Y TWO~ BREAK UP.

“Tell me how you’ve never felt delicate or innocent. Do you still have doubts that us having faith makes any sense.”

Some young angst! I swear there’s happy posts around the corner! XD You can guess what inspired this and what the white streak around Merida’s curl means ;3;.

Jarida week has begun! And what a start it has been! We hope to see more coming soon among the days ahead! Can’t wait to see all your amazing stuff! Remember, these are the themes/lyrics for the days; but remember, you don’t have to follow these songs exact, you can definitely use your own if these are too difficult to manage.

Day 1 - “When you lose the one you’ve wanted, it’s like a part of you is haunted. And you’re desperate for hope but the ashes and smoke are covering the ground.” (Tempest)

Day 2 - “Tell me how you’ve never felt Delicate or innocent. Do you still have doubts that us having faith makes any sense.” (Break Up)

Day 3 - “We were strangers starting on a journey, never dreaming what we would have to go through//No one told me I was going to find you, unexpected what you did to my heart.” (Lost and Found)

Day 4 - “Doing all I can do, just to be close to you. Every time that we meet, I skip a heartbeat. Always up for a laugh, she’s a pain in the arse.Every time that we meet, I skip a heartbeat.” (Stolen Glances)

Day 5 - “But I’ll take my time if you want to. And I’ll give you whatever you need. And I’ll wait a lifetime to give in to you.” (Timeless)

Day 6 - “A certain type of darkness has stolen me. Under a quiet mask of uncertainty. I wait for light like water from the sky. And I am lost again.”(Dark Side)

Day 7- “True as it can be. Barely even friends. Then some body bends, unexpectedly.” (Tale as old as Time)

Enjoy the week, and happy shipping! :3 Also, AMAZING THANKS AND GREAT APPRECIATION FROM THE WONDERFUL punziella for coloring this for me. I did NOT have the time, and she swept in like a true hero and helped me out! Truly amazing artist you ALL should know.

Day 6:  Dark Side.

I’ve seen so many pictures of Jack having a dark side before that for this I was like “Okay screw it, I’m drawing Merida.”  Headcannon that Dark!Merida has no scottish accent, and her tone is cool and crisp… and evil XD  That would be a definite  difference between Merida and Dark!Merida.   

Hope you guys like it :)
