In my searches for THE TRUTH, I’ve done a lot of listening. I’ve listened to haunted houses to hear ghosts from other dimensions. I’ve listened to radio signals from the cosmos for signs of alien life. But on my most recent quest to help the Crystal Gems, I forgot to listen to someone very important: the Crystal Gems. If you wanna help someone else, you can’t make it all about you - no matter how sweet your KATANA BLADES may be! You gotta listen and help spread their words.
I’ve also learned that HUMANS NEED TO SLEEP. I didn’t sleep for 48 hours and I PASSED OUT FOR DAYS. I woke up on the floor in the foyer of my house. My dad said that’s as far as he could drag me with his bad back. From now on, I’m sticking to my normal schedule of 16 hours of sleep a night.
Anyway, if you’re in Beach City, come grab a Ronalphlet and learn how you can help the Crystal Gems!
First of all, I want to say thank you as always for the support you guys show me. I haven’t responded to every message yet, but I read them when I can, and I appreciate all the love you’re showing Maggie and the boys. I’ve said it before but they’ve been in my head for so long, it’s really fun for me to see them all embraced and picked apart and headcanon’d by you all. :)
I know this next update is taking a while. It feels like a cop-out to say, but life has been busy. I accepted a promotion at my job, my work load’s increased slightly, and I’m trying to get myself back on a normal sleeping schedule (so like not drawing til 3am). I want to give you guys the best comic I can, the comic as I picture it and how I know it can be, so that may delay my updates more than I wanted. Let’s say this: I will be as transparent with you as I can be about my pub dates as I’m able to complete them. Long story, I tried burning the candle all the way down and wound up walking around in a fever haze.
Lastly, I know that some of you had been interested in learning a little more about the individual Knights, and about the (fictional) USHL Atlantic Conference – I hear you! I’m doing my best to time-manage, but I love the idea of you getting to know the kids better, especially. I’ll see what I can whip up.
Thanks for sticking with me, I will do my best to make the comic worth it!
Based on a request from @sekretagentmans! It’s more of a spin on their original request, but I thought the “rap vs wrap” would be great for the holidays! We Mods have been a bit busy (again) between illness, dealing with finals, and even job searches, but we’re hoping to get back on a normal schedule now that most of it is done! All I want for the holidays is an actual consistent amount of time to do work and planning AND TO NOT GET SICK AGAIN. Hope we see more stuff coming soon c:
Sooo… I have been at Disney World for the past couple days…. and I didn’t say anything here. So for starters I’m sorry I kept you in the dark. I was planning on making posts here despite being on vacation but I ended up getting distracted and never got around to letting you guys know. That was totally my fault and I am very sorry. That being said I am back home now so I can get back to my normal schedule again. Thanks for your time and your patience <3
in an effort to bring lots of goodies to sell and give away for CTNx, I’ll be focusing all my efforts in producing art from here until the 16th when I leave for burbank. :D I figured selling warrior ladies inspired by the different zodiac signs would be a pretty cute idea! starting off with Aries. not sure if I’ll keep it all medieval themed or if I should branch out into other eras or locations…
commissions will slow down a little again (I’M SORRY!!! I feel so bad delaying work like this, I really do), but I really don’t want the bulk of my stufff to be fanart (don’t wanna get in trouble, plus I gotta bring original stuff too!), so I really have to do this. I will be planning out my days ahead and will hopefully be able to address my clients for this current batch :) After CTNx is over I will be back to normal, I won’t have anything else urgent in my schedule for a long time to come.
thank you thank you to everyone who is in line for a commish and is patient with me. <3 I have gone from 0 to 20 to 100 art-wise reaaal quick these past few months and while they have been amazing, I still have some planning and discipline issues I need to get in order.
You greeted the man with a cursory nod, balancing your grocery bags in one hand and getting your key into your front door with the other. Maybe one of your neighbor’s dates, though they’d never made much small talk with you crossed paths.
“Excuse me,” he tried again. You looked to him with your door half open. “You wouldn’t happen to know when your neighbor’s getting home…?”
“Uh. No, sorry. We kind of keep to ourselves,” you said. He nodded, pursing his lips.
“Huh. Well, maybe you could help me.”
“If you’re selling something, I’m not interested,” you began, but he held his hands up, placating.
“Not selling anything. I’m actually FBI,” he said, reaching into his jacket pocket and pulling his badge from it, giving you a quick look. He stowed it again, throwing you a grin that felt friendlier–flirtier–than a fed. You glanced at the car he’d come in, at his jacket and jeans, and you narrowed your eyes at him.
“Is she in trouble?” you asked, eyeing your neighbor’s house.
“No, no trouble,” he said. “I just have a few questions for her.”
“I don’t know how much I could help,” you said, hesitating on your porch. “And I’m kind of in a rush.”
“That’s no problem,” he said, still giving you an easy smile. It was the strangest thing; his gaze was making you wish you’d done something with your hair before you’d gone out, or at least put on a proper outfit, and you didn’t know why you cared.
“Sorry I couldn’t help you,” you said, forcing one foot forward across the threshold of your place.
“Don’t apologize,” he said with a shrug, and waited until you met his eye before continuing. “I’ll try again tomorrow.”
Hey guys theres going to be a temporary change for the pages. My job has started giving me overtime so I dont have much time to draw two pages of the comic a day so for the time being, im going to update one page per day. I hope you will understand and i will get back to two as soon as my schedule gets back to normal :’)
Thank you everybody who sent in their stories! I’ll have to have another day in the future where we can share some more!
If your story didn’t get answered or posted, don’t worry! You can share it again next time we do something like this! For now though, I’ll be going back to my normally scheduled blogging :) Thanks again everyone!
“Hi. Can I request about gdragon when he smoke a lot around you but he doesn’t know that you have asthma. Then one day he smoke and you got asthma attack and he’s panic? Thank you 🎂“
Requested by: anon.
Type: fluffy/angsty (kinda)
I don’t know a lot of things about asthma, so I tried to find what was happening during an asthma attack.
I hope you’ll like it and I hope this is what you wanted.
-GIF isn’t mine-
Jiyong and I have been dating for about a year and half. But during this year, we haven’t been able to spend a lot of time together. Mostly because of his busy schedule.
But now, everything was going back to “normal” which meant that we were able to spend a lot more time together. I was seriously in love, I loved everything about him. Well everything except for one thing, his smoking habit.
I never love the smell of it, but also because I have asthma. Whenever someone smokes next to me, I got asthma attack. He doesn’t know about it because thankfully I never had one around him.
I was currently on my way to his place. He decided to take his day off and to spend it with me. I was the one who wanted to come over, I wanted him to rest.
“How are you?” he asks the second I step into his place. “Good, what about you?” I ask, greeting him with a kiss.
“Good! I’m happy we get to spend some time together” he says, kissing me back.
“You smoke inside your apartment?” I suddenly ask, frowning and sniffing.
“Hum, yeah sometimes” he answers, shrugging. “I was about to cook, are you hungry?” he asks, leaving for the kitchen.
“Oh yes please! I’m really really hungry” I chuckle, taking my shoes and coat off.
“We can watch couple of movies, TV or do something completely different” he smiles, starting to coo some rice.
“I don’t really know. I just want you to rest” I answer, petting his cat.
“Movies then?” he asks, looking at me with a smile and his eyebrows raised.
“Sure” I smile, still petting his cat. “You like kimbap right?” he asks. “Yeah I do. How can you not now this?” I giggle.
“I wanted to make sure you liked it! I don’t want you to eat something you don’t like” he answers, giggling.
“No excuse” I add, smiling.
“Do you mind giving me my cigarettes please?” he asks. “Hum yeah sure, where are they?” I ask, looking around the kitchen.
“Oh in my room I think. Do you want ramen?” he asks, cooking some ramen. “Yes please” I answer, leaving the kitchen.
“He should quit.. I really don’t know why people smoke. It’s dangerous and expensive” I say, talking to myself as I look for his cigarettes in his room.
“AH! Found them” I say, grabbing them. I was about to leave his room when I looked out of his window.
“Did you find them?” I hear someone ask behind me. “Yeah” I say, nodding. “It’s ready by the way” he quietly says, taking his cigarettes from my hand.
“I’m coming” I say, still looking at the view”. “Are you okay?” he giggles, standing next to me and looking at me.
“It’s beautiful” I slowly say, smiling. “It is! I like to watch the sunset” he says.
Few seconds later, I hear him light a cigarette.
“We could come here later toni-” he starts to say. “I’m hungry” I quickly say, rushing to the kitchen.
“It’s delicious! Thank you” I smile, eating a piece of gimbap.
“Thank you! See, I can cook” he smirks, wiggling his eyebrows. “You sure can” I smile.
“Come closer to me” he whines, taking my hand in his. “I’m good here” I quietly say, looking away from him.
I still could smell cigarette on him. I didn’t want to have an asthma attack, especially with him.
“You better be snuggling with me while we watch a movie” he pouts.
“By the way, which movie do you want to watch?” I ask, eating another piece of gimbap.
“You shouldn’t smoke you know” I whisper, looking at him. We were half way through the movie and it was his second cigarette.
“What?” he says, looking back at me. “Why are you telling me this right now?” he asks, taking his cigarette out of his mouth.
“I don’t know.. I’ve been thinking about it since I stepped into your place” I quietly say.
“It’s okay, don’t worry about it” he whispers, stroking my cheek.
“Don’t worry??? How can I not worry?! You’re slowly killing yourself” I say, frowning.
“Ugh come on! I know what I’m doing. I’m not a baby” he shrugs, looking back at the TV.
“Whatever” I whisper, moving away from him. “Are you serious right now??” he says, staring at me.
“What?” I answer, not moving my eyes away from the TV.
“You’re seriously moving away from me because I don’t want to talk about it??” he asks, still smoking.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about” I say, raising my eyebrows at him.
“Alright!” he quietly says.
“What are yo-” I immediately stop.
He was staring at me while smoking. As if he was provoking me.
“We’re at my place. If I want to smoke, it’s not a problem” he says, smirking at me.
“Please don’t” I whisper, trying to move away from him.
“Why? This is my choice. I want to smoke and you have nothing to say about it” he looks at me, raising his eyebrow.
“Can you please move away from me?” I ask, standing up and moving as far away as I could.
“Why? I like the smell of it. You know, if we’re dating you have to get use to it” he smiles, wiggling his eyebrows.
“Please stop” I raise my voice, trying to remember how to breathe. I could feel it, the asthma attack was inevitable.
“Oh come on! It won’t kill you” he chuckles. “Don’t be silly, come sit down next to me please” he seriously says.
I started to leave. I needed to use my inhalator which was in my bag.
“Are you leaving?” he asks, pressing pause and following me.
“I just need my bag and stay away from me” I say, trying to reach my bag.
“I’m sorry okay! But you can’t ask me to stop like that” he says, taking my wrist.
“Please, let go of me” I tear up, looking at my bag.
“Jagi.. I’m sorry, please don’t cry” he whispers, hugging me.
“Oppa, go- go away pleas- please” I weakly say, breathing in and out. I could feel it coming and I knew it was too late.
“Don’t cry, I’m sorry” he says, kissing the top of my head.
“Jagi?” he asks a few seconds later. “I can- can’t br- breathe” I cry, panicking.
“What? This isn’t funny” he sighs. “My inhalator is- my ba- bag” I try to say, sitting down on the floor.
“Come on Jagi, I told you I was sorry” he rolls his eyes.
I couldn’t talk anymore. My throat was too tight and I needed to breathe as I calmly as possible.
“Jagi? Jagi?!” he says, kneeling down in front of me.
I was crying. I felt like it was too late and nothing could possible make me feel better.
“Jagi! Answer me” he says, holding my shoulders. “Why are you lips blue? Are you cold??” he asks, frowning.
I was trying to show him that I needed my inhalator.
“What? Please stop messing with me! This isn’t funny!!” he frowns.
“What’s happening here?” we hear someone ask.
“I don’t know. She has been doing this for the past five minutes” Jiyong explains to his sister. I saw how she looked at me, she knew what was happening.
“Jiyong!!!!! She’s having an asthma attack! Where’s her inhalator???” Dami quickly says, looking around.
I tried to point at my bag, which was with my coat.
“Her bag, go get her bag” she says to Jiyong, kneeling down in front of me.
“Hey it’s okay, breathe in and out. In and out” she whispers, trying to calm me.
“How does it work???” Jiyong comes back with my inhalator. His hands were shaking.
“Give it to me” Dami says, taking it from his hands. “Breathe in, in three okay??” she asks, placing my inhalator in between my lips.
“1, 2 and 3″ she says.
“Hey you’re awake” I hear someone quietly say.
“How do you feel?” I see Dami ask, giving me a glass of water.
“Better. Thank you so much” I whisper, sipping a little bit a water.
“Don’t worry about it. One of my friend has asthma, I know how scary it is” she smiles, stroking my back.
“Where’s Jiyong?” I suddenly ask, looking around the room.
“In his room I think. I let you sleep in my room because it doesn’t smell cigarette here” she quietly explains.
“Can you ask him to come over please?” I ask, looking at her. She nodded and left.
After I finished my water, I set the glass on her bedside table and lied down on her bed. Few minutes later, Jiyong was in his sister’s room. He was standing right next to the bed.
“Hey” I smile, taking his hand in mine.
“I’m sorry” he quietly says, taking his hand away. “It’s okay. Please don’t blame yourself” I say, sitting up and patting the space next to me for him to sit down.
“How can I not blame myself? I almost killed you” he whispers, bursting into tears.
“Oppa~” I whisper, moving closer to him and stroking his back.
“You didn’t. I should’ve tell you about my asthma problem” I whisper, kissing his shoulder.
“That doesn’t change anything. You could’ve die and I thought you were messing with me. You don’t know how bad I feel, I’m such a bad boyfriend” he says, crying.
“But you didn’t know! It’s my fault not yours. I’m alive, so please don’t blame yourself. Thankfully your sister came back home at the right moment” I slowly explain, stroking his back.
“I’ll stop” he suddenly says. “What?” I frown. “I won’t smoke anymore” he says, looking up at me.
“I don’t ask you to do that you know. Even though it’s bad for you, you’re the only one who can decide whether you stop or not” I quietly say.
“But I have to!
I’m planning on staying with you for quite a while. I don’t want to see you having another attack because of me” he explains, hugging me and setting his face in the crook of my neck.
“Quite a while?” I chuckle. “You know what I mean” he says, leaving little kisses on my neck.
“I’m so sorry. You have no idea” he whispers. “Please stop crying. It’s not your fault. I should’ve tell you about it. It’s okay” I whisper.
“I love you so much. So so so so so much” he adds, pulling away to kiss me on the lips.
“I love you too. So so so so so much” I whisper, kissing him back.
I hope you liked it. Feel free to send me feedback about it, I would love to know what you thought about it!😊
