whether near or far
i am always yours

Guys, gals, and nonbinary pals of the Noragami fandom, I have the greatest pleasure to present to you something to perhaps alleviate the pain of the hiatus…

The End of All Things is a fanmade backstory for Father that I’ve been working on for the past two years… because there is a sore lack of discussion about it, so I decided to take matters into my own hands. The three characters pictured above are its main stars, as well as subjects of this year’s Inktober for me!! Ya’ll have no idea how freaking excited I am to be finally introducing these kids to you guys.

Huge shout-out to @inkyscribbler @scarfblogs @noragami-rarepairs @paperypiper @cactiicoffee and especially @chvnjin & @saiikoos, who patiently listened to my endless ranting about this. The End of all Things couldn’t have been possible without you guys lending me a listening ear. Thank you so much.

All artwork relating to Father’s backstory are under the tag #Noragami Pastverse. Can’t wait for the Pastverse trio to be making more appearances on this blog this month (and beyond)!

a note on historical accuracy below the cut:

* oh india! it’s been good four days here in Amritsar. first stop on this trip. it is a rollercoaster ride everyday. a beautiful disaster. you get delighted one minute- by a child’s smiling face, or a hot tasty tandoori- and get pissed off right after- by a loud incessant honk. 


*photo taken in Khardung La in the Indian Himalaya is the highest motorable road at 5,682 masl  as per Guiness World Records. this photo was taken on our way back to Leh from Nubra Valley. we were inside the airconditioned car for over an hour before we got in Khardung La. it was winter- beloew zero. when the car came to a halt, i got excited with the scenery, i abruptly jumped out of the car i totally forgot about the high altitude. i instantly felt a piercing headache. altitude sickness. it lasted for a few days.
