My three favorite couples, Korrasami, Amerikate and Bubbline.
I has been pretty uncomfortable with my art the last days, struggling with the comic pages, and that sucks. So, i decided give me a break, and back to my “happy zone”, and drawing my favorite things, to get back my confidence.
I must say, the excercise works pretty good.
If you like girl love, you can give a chance to “The order of Belfry” @belfryknights my webcomic proyect.
Thanks for all the support and hi to all the new followers!!
Summary- You are King Stevens beloved little sister, who is
hopelessly in love with his best friend High Duke James. The only problem is James refuses to see you when he gets home from battle.
Message- I promise tomorrow will be a chapter from one of my
stories. Probably Chapter 3 of Fire and Ice. I just kinda got inspired to write
this today, but I did work on a bunch of other chapters for my other fics to! Also,
should I do a part 2 to this?
Word Count- 1580
“I am to be married.” Your brother Steve says as he sits
down next to you.
“To who? I have not heard any news of you courting anyone. I
thought you said you would never marry, not after what happened to Peggy?” You
ask as you lean against your brother.
“Her name is Princess Natasha, its necessary, this union
will end the war.” He whispers. “I-I don’t think Peg would mind. Do you?”
“No, no. She wouldn’t. She’s been gone for five years now.
She would want you to move on, to be happy.” You say as you pull your older
brother into a hug.
“She was the love of my life. I don’t know if I’ll ever move
on from that.” He murmurs into your shoulder.
“Even if you do not love your wife, you can still be a kind
and caring husband.” You say as you run your fingers through his hair.
“You are right, as always.” Your brother mumbles. “Now that
the war is ending, Bucky will be returning home.” That makes you perk up a bit.
It was no secret to your brother, that you held affections for his closest
friend. “Perhaps the both of us will be married before the year is out.” Steve
“Ha ha, you are hilarious, brother. We both know Bucky
always saw me as a child.” You say.
“You have grown up in the years he has been gone, I am sure
he will notice.” Steve says.
“Perhaps.” You murmur. “Read to me, I am too tired to do it
myself and it will distract you from your impending wedding date.”
“What book?” Your brother asks as you snuggle into his side
“I don’t care.” You murmur and your brother laughs as he
grabs a book off the table. Then he starts to read the book and eventually you
drift off to sleep.
To say that you hated your new sister-in-law was an
understatement. She was cold, calculating and never gave a straight forward
answer. She wouldn’t even speak to anyone- accept the guard she brought with
her named Clint- unless she absolutely had to, and that included her new
husband, your brother. She even demanded her own courters, which while done in
many other countries was not something done her.
“Do you think I did something to insult her?” Your brother
asks as he walks into the private family room.
“I don’t think so, I think that’s just what she is like.”
“Do you, do you think that she and that guard of hers are
involved?” Steve whispers so low you can barely hear.
“She would be stupid to do that, it is treason after all and
it is grounds for divorce.” You say as you pull your brother into a hug.
“Bucky should be here in the next week. I got a letter from
him, he was gravely injured in the last battle. That is what has taken him so
long to come home.” Steve says to you.
“But he is okay now. Right?” You ask.
“They had to cut off his arm, because of an infection.”
Steve murmurs and your legs buckle and your brother helps you sit down.
“Oh, but other than that he is okay, right? The infection is
gone? The amputation worked?” you question.
“I believe so yes.” Steve says. “I need to go, are you okay
to be alone for the moment?”
“Yes, I am fine.” You murmur and Steve leaves the room after
giving you one more glance. You take a couple moments to collect yourself and
then you leave the room, having a destination in mind. You find Clint sitting
with Natasha. It is Natasha who notices you first.
“Princess Y/N, is there something you need from me?” Natasha
“I need to speak with your guard, alone.” You say coolly.
Clint and Natasha exchange confused looks before Clint rises from his chair.
“Of course, your highness.” Clint says as he follows you out
of the room. “What is it that you need of me?” he asks after you lead him into
“I need you to stop having relations with Princess Natasha.
I understand that things are different where you come from, but here in this
kingdom, fidelity is important. We are faithful to our spouses and I know that
you are aware that sleeping with the wife of the King is treason. You are going
to be killed if you continue to do this.” You sneer.
“Princess Natasha and I are not sleeping together. I would
never allow her to do something that stupid and careless. You should stop
spreading these harmful rumors.” Clint growls at you.
“I am here because my brother has expressed concern of her
infidelity. If she is faithful why did she demand her own chambers?” you
“Can you truly blame her for not wanting to share a bed with
a stranger? I beg that you clear things up with the King. Princess Natasha is a
lot of things, but she will remain faithful to your brother.” Clint says.
“I will let my brother know. Have a good day.” You say as
you leave the room.
“Bucky, please let me in!” You cry into the door. “You have
been home a week and I have not seen you yet. I have missed you these last
“Go away, Y/N. I do not wish to see you today.” Bucky says
from behind the door.
“I know what you are doing. You are trying to push me away.
But I will not let you. I am sure you remember from our youth how good I am at
pestering you.” You say back.
“I would have thought that you had gotten over your
childhood crush on me by now.” Bucky sneers.
“You are in pain, so I will choose to ignore that rude
comment. I am going to bother you until you let me in.” You say as you sit down
by the door.
“Go find yourself a proper husband!” Bucky barks though the
“If you are not worthy of me, who is? You are the kindest
man I know, you care about my opinion, you have the highest rank outside of the
royal family and you are the wealthiest citizen in our country.” You yell.
“I am not a man anymore, I am crippled. I only have one arm,
how will I hold you, how will I dance with you? If you were ever to fall pregnant
how would I hold the babe?” Bucky cries through the door.
“If I’m not mistaken the arm is not the appendage that makes
you a man. As for those other things, we will figure those things out. I was
never one to enjoy dancing anyway.” You say and you can hear Bucky laugh in
between his sobs. “I have always loved you, you know. My earliest memory is of
me toddling after you and Steve in the garden and then I fell and scrapped my
knee and you kissed it better.”
“I could never stand to see you cry, I would move mountains
to make you happy.” Bucky whispers.
“You do not need to move mountains, just open the door.” You
murmur. Then you hear shuffling and the door starts to crack open. That’s when
you see him, his hair is longer than it used to be, it is a little past his
chin, his face is unshaven, but not enough for him to have a proper beard. “Bucky.”
You whisper as you move to hug him. Then he pulls you into his chambers and the
two of you sit on the sofa. You talk for hours. Catching up on what each of you
missed in the other’s lives, both of you laugh and both of you cry. Bucky tells
you about the horrors of war and you tell him about your new sister-in-law.
“Perhaps she is still on guard. We were her enemies not even
two months ago. I know first impressions mean a lot to you but you need to give
her time to adjust.” Bucky says as he holds your hand. The two of you fall into
silence for a bit, but then Bucky murmurs. “I would think about you a lot, while I was
away. You were my happy place, I fell in love with the memories I had of you. I
had every intention of coming back and demanding Steve allow me to have your
hand in marriage. But then this happened” Bucky motions to where his arm used
to be. “And I knew that you would never agree to marry me.”
“You truly think so little of me?” You ask.
“No, but you are a princess. You have a duty to your people,
you need a strong man to be your husband.” Bucky says.
“You are the strongest man I’ve ever met.” You say as you
grip is face. “I would be honored to be your wife. If you ever felt inclined to
ask me.” Then Bucky takes a deep breath and turns his whole body to face you.
“If Steve gives us permission.” He starts.
“Steve will give us his permission.” You say as you roll
“Don’t interrupt my proposal.” Bucky says as he laughs. “If
Steve gives us his permission, will you do me the honor of becoming my wife?”
“Yes.” You whisper before sharing a chaste kiss with Bucky.
I wanted to get to the positive bits of queer stuff and totally avoid any negative today. So I present a list of 10 queer creators you should be checking out, This is by no means a top 10 creators or top 10 queer creators list. This is just 10 queer creators I really like that I managed to think of first. These aren’t in any order or anything so just enjoy seeing 10 awesome persons who can enrich your life with their amazing content.
Jen Bartel: Jen Bartel is an amazing illustrator currently doing covers for Jem and the Holograms and creating her own comic Crystal Fighters on the comic app Stela. I discovered her work Jem and the Holograms and am excited, despite my utter love for Sophie Campbell (and do expect to see her popping up again), for her to do some pages of Jem and the Holograms. She infuses a lot of life into characters, she has a nice style that feels like it has just enough punk rock influence to always be badass.
Marguerite Bennett: Bennett is one of my favorite writers hands down. She manages to flawlessly creator amazing queer story after amazing queer story. Not only are they amazingly queer but amazingly written when some of the strongest uses of character voice in comics. Along with this she is really great at at humor and I very often find myself giggling across stories she writes. She is currently putting out DC Bombshells and Insexts with Animosity and Josie and the Pussycats coming up soon. I also highly recommend her work on Angela in particular Angela Queen of Hel that is soon releasing in trade.
Brittany Williams: Brittany is an amazing artist who’s currently working on Hellcat at Marvel. She is also the artist on Goldie Vance and the upcoming Legend of Korra graphic novels. Brittany’s work manages to have such a wonderful defined style that I can’t help but be impressed with every time. She has a very cute chibi style she also uses and it flows really well with her normal art. I am excited to see anything she draws and it’s always an amazing time visually. When I think amazing art Brittany is always near the top of the list.
Kieron Gillen: Kieron Gillen defined many of Marvel’s most iconic queer characters. While none of the characters he wrote as part of the Young Avengers roster were his own creation America Chavez in particular went from old man’s perverted teen fantasy to bad ass defined queer woman. His work on The Wicked + The Divine is amazing, thought provoking, and charming. Kieron Gillen in many ways is sort of artist personified infact coming out he wrote a whole long essay because he is like the writer incarnate. Seriously though he is an amazing talent who manages to really balance so much creatively. When it comes to a large ensemble cast I think there is no writer better to getting them each to feel totally their own and uniquely likeable (or unlikable).
Noelle Stevenson: Noelle has moved away from comics for a little bit but she is one of the most important writers for queer media. With Nimona her webcomic then print comic she helped further prove that webcomics moved to print can be a nice payday for the publisher and the creators (Side note she also did the art on that book, and it’s great). Then being one of the biggest creators on Lumberjanes she has set childrens queer media in comics on fire. I believe Noelle is very much one of the main reasons that so much queer content is getting published in smaller press. Lumberjanes is an amazing series and something that really brought life into the comics field. Right now you can go back and buy her older work including a Secret Wars run of the Runaways that is pretty underrated. You can also see her writing live in animation in the Disney XD show Wander Over Yonder.
Ted Brandt: Inking for Princeless Raven the Pirate Princess Ted is the best in the biz. Ted adds so much to the art and it’s one of the very few times where I can really tell the inkers influence on art. Ted is also just a super nice person in every interaction I have had with him so that is good. Ted is currently putting out Raven The Pirate Princess and you should really be checking it out. It’s super cheap on Comixology and the first two volumes are out in trade. It’s a great time to catch up before issue 9 releases.
Sophie Campbell: Oh my gosh, I can’t even begin to talk about how great Sophie is. Sophie is a double threat being a talented writer and artist. Her art manages to always have lovely body types and I have had the experience of thinking for a moment, people look odd, then i was like “wait these people just look like people.” It’s so amazing, so lively, so fantastic. I always watch what Sophie is doing be that art or writing. Sophie is currently putting out reprints of Shadoweyes and Wetmoon some of her older projects. There is more Wetmoon coming in the future as well as a webcomic she is working on. You can also read the book I found Sophie in Jem and the Holograms as she goes to her last issue of drawing the series.
Kate Leth: Kate’s work in comics transcends her writing and her art. Kate has put so much into She is a founder of The Valkyries making the industry much better for woman working at comic shops. Her writing is also so filled with energy, fun and queer characters. Kate recently had her creator owned project Power Up come out in print and it’s a great comic. Kate always manages to really bring this lovely lively feeling and Power Up displays that pretty well. She is also doing writing on Hellcat, Girl Over Paris, and Vampirella.
Shannon Watters: I had to have an editor somewhere here and Shannon is the very best in the business. She edits pretty much if not all the Boombox books and is a leading force for queer representation in the comics industry. In fact she now shares writing duty for Lumberjanes after Noelle Stevenson left the book. She is a fantastic writer, fantastic editor, and a general talent. You can find her work on a lot of things since she is Head of KaBOOM! & BOOM! Box.
Magdalene Visaggio: I wanted to include Mags here despite not really being attached to her work yet. She is the writer of the upcoming Kim and Kim and it’s my most anticipated comic this year. Mags is a trans woman getting to write a trans woman and this is so insanely rare in print comics. Reading the preview and the earlier tease of it both filled me with so much joy. Kim and Kim is a book I have all my faith in and I really want it to be a success so please do check out Kim and Kim issue 1 that is coming out very soon.
Bucky stared at the rows and rows of princess costumes in the costume store. There were so many choices, and so much glitter. Bucky shuddered involuntarily at the thought of having to clean up after the trails of glitter his daughter would certainly leave behind as she danced around the apartment. He was convinced glitter was the STD of craft supplies.
Becca stood in front of him, hands tucked under her tiny chin in fierce concentration as she decided on the perfect costume for Prince and Princess Day.
Tony: I can’t compete with you physically, and you’re no match for my brains. Steve: You’re that smart? Tony: Let me put it this way. Have you ever heard of Plato, Aristotle, Socrates? Steve: Yes. Tony: Morons.
