I read your Athena and Dionysus headcanons and really liked them. If you don't mind, could you do headcanons for a child of Apollo and Athena?
Okay so I am pretty much just going to describe my and Raviv’s friendship because I am a daughter of Athena and Raviv is a daughter of Apollo and no matter how much Raviv denies it we we’re p much platonically dating we literally had an argument about this at lunch like honestly we’d make such a great couple #goals but Raviv thinks she would murder me
Athena kid is basically just a walking encyclopedia and knows the answer to almost any question thrown at them.
“Why are black cats considered unlucky?”
“Well, within Europe during medieval times, there was the folklore and
belief that witches could turn into black cats at night, and some held the belief that they were simply servants of witches. Due to the overwhelming amounts of Christianity and the era of prosecution, witches, and therefore black cats, are often viewed as very negative creatures,”
“Thanks, you just saved my English homework”
Apollo kid constantly trying to get the Athena kid into musicals and cool tv shows and the Athena kid just being like ‘ugh no my heart can only deal with so much fandom’
Athena kid ends up liking those fandoms like a year later
Athena kid is over-the-top smart and can do any math equation thrown at them but cannot for the life of them figure out riddles
“They’re so easy!”
“I loathe them with all of the burning passion in my soul”
“How can you like Calculus but not like riddles?”
Constantly bickering and butting heads at pretty much everything
“I don’t care if it’s the original Shakespearean pronunciation of Hecate. We are not Shakespearean!”
“I”m just saying if you want to be accurate when you’re acting in this play you wouldn’t pronounce it the Greek way.”
“WE ARE GREEK.”
But constantly resolving these issues in under five minutes and back to being lovey-dovey and adorable in a flash.
A constant almost annoying barrage of ‘babes’ everywhere and holding hands
Athena kid is angry and bitter about life and Apollo kid is chill about life.
“Did you do the homework?”
“Oh, we had homework?”
“I’m so angry at that Ares kid for tALking to me that early in the morning. Should I tie his laces together before he climbs the lava wall?”
“JESUS what the hell calm down he just told you that your shirt was inside out”
“I’m so salty about-”
“Literally everything. Yes, I know. Now, get over here and hold hands with me asshole.”
Both of them are really loud and loudness+arguing=people vacating from rooms they are in.
“WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DIDN’T LIKE THE FIFTH HARRY POTTER BOOK”
“I MEAN THAT I DIDN’T LIKE THE FIFTH HARRY POTTER BOOK”
“YOU WANNA FIGHT”
“YEAH LET’S GO”
This results in the two of them play slapping each other and sissy-fighting for about 30 seconds before they get tired.
“I’ll still love you even if you’re a traitor to this fandom”
Cuddling up and watching TV shows does not end well because the Athena kid just cannot let that go.
“thaT’S NOT HOW YOU DISPOSE OF A FIREARM! Especially after murdering so many people!”
“It’s a small town! They’re not going to check the lake! … I know I’m going to regret asking this but how DO you dispose of a gun after murdering someone?”
“WELL first you wouldn’t just CHUCK the thing COVERED in DNA and fingerprints A FOOT INTO A LAKE. First-” *launches into detailed explanation of how to correctly clean a firearm and dispose of it*
So, I tend to make a lot of jokes about me being some sorta King/Queen (Example: "I am the king of this house.") so I was wondering if you know any gender-neutral versions of King/Queen or should I stick with calling myself King?

In essence, this is the same process, except that it is a mix of my three attempts at learning Jake’s technique. Which brought a few tweaks
All three attempts were slightly different.
The first was a “I’ll follow the manual” thing :
The second was a variation with another colour than black as a background, or more accurately, making a nebula without any background colour. This used a drybrush technique :
The third came back to the text book, albeit with a desire to have colours blend more. To that end it used a wetting-the-paint-on-the-model method.
Flyers are great, they have a lot of surface to play with to really give this wet technique the room to shine. On smaller models though, the results do not achieve the impression of deepness of this Voidraven, but it is still worth the effort, at least if you look at the model from a playing distance.
The models I’m painting at the moment do not leave any black deep-space areas. They were undercoated with Mephiston Red spray paint, which I still deeply regret.
I would like to emphasis the fact that these techniques will crush your spirit until the last phase, where everything comes together and no matter how shitty it looked during the process, it will in fact, turn out great. I remember almost crying out of frustration on my first attempt.
STEP 1 : Getting started and doubting
Like with Jake’s tutorial, haphazardly paint your models with two base colours. Deposit the paint on a palette, take a lot of water on the brush, drop it on the palette, mix a little, put the blob of paint on the model. Really wet it, but not as much as it would immediately run. Aim for that “round drop of water on a surface” as a limit, running is desired, but not just yet.
Switch to colour 2, do the same, you might not need as much water this time, you’ll have to be the judge of that. Here your bubbles will connect and the paint from blob one will move around, dilute, blend a little but never really mix into another colour.
You don’t want them to become another colour, at least not too much, here a little bit of purple-ish blue or red in a very limited area can be acceptable, but if it turns outright purple, just wipe it away from the brush/model.
Play with the water : go take some with your brush and drop it on the model if it doesn’t feel like fun/risky to do. Let it go where it wants, or not, try turning the model around or up/down to achieve desired effects.
Let dry thoroughly before next step.
STEP 2 : feels like you did nothing of importance
Same than step one, but with layer colours, be a bit more precise with what you do, but you still have room for happy mistakes. As explained in Jake’s tutorial, you do not want to just paint over the deep blue, you want it to overlap a bit, be a bit smaller as to give the paint the idea of gradient, definitely use less water, but still, have a really wet brush.
You should totally have a nebula image from nasa or w/e as a model while doing this when you first try it out, it helps a lot. At least until you become familiar with nebula techniques.
STEP 3 : feels like improvement, or ruining the model?
Keep at it, go for even more lighter colours. In my case I didn’t use more than two red colours (Khorne and Evil Suns) but did use 3 or 4 colours for the blue (Kantor, Caledor, Lothern, and White if you want to count that in)
Keep going smaller (or not actually, in some places it can achieve nice effects) if you are perfectionist to the point of painting a replica of a nebula picture to the letter, these aren’t considerations that will bother you.
(sorry no picture)
STEP 4 : feels like it might come together eventually.
Fun part, take a bit of one of your base colours in a small recipient (I use icecube-making moulds) with the brush add a lot of water. Mix and apply all over the area. See Jake’s tutorial for an image and explanation it’s the exact same step.
STEP 5 : stars and shit
I’ve gotten lazy (that’s my trait in painting because I really don’t enjoy painting, if I could get to my end result without having to pick up a brush, I’d be so happy).
On the voidraven, I did every star one by one. It was okay, its a big model it needs to look good. On my bikes and this batch, I’ve used a destroyed brush to do like ten little spots at once, but they of course don’t look as good if your aim is to have nice round and small stars. What I did looks different, but not necessarily bad.
I added little parts where I almost dried-brush the lighter blue, other parts I used a wet brush, you have to test it out to see what works best for you. Most of the time I don’t know what I am doing and hope it’ll come out okay.
STEP 6 : INK/SHADE THE SHIT OUT OF IT.
By now the model looks okay, but it can look even better if you just use a big brush containing a lot of ink (shade) in it. It will give the whole thing deepness and brilliance, as well as a certain fading, as if it was a real paintjob made by the space elves, rather than feeling like it’s a paintjob from a hobbyist nerdzor.
I used an ink coulour that is not of the same hue as the earlier wash. In this case, I had washed with Khorne Red, so I opted for Drakenhof Nightshade as a finishing touch.
A lot of variations of these techniques will work. It is fun to try different things everytime or to have to find ways to adapt what you did on a 10cm x 5cm flyer hull to a 1,5cm x 1cm cape.
We’ve created a Kitten Space Tag that every Kitten can do, regardless of if they have a master or not.

Do you think there's a difference between the terms 'LGBT(+)' and 'queer'? I'm curious because I tend to use them interchangeably. Typically I say 'LGBT(+)', and write/type 'queer'.
I personally use them interchangeably and there’s certainly a history of “queer” being used as an umbrella term. I think the idea that one is inherently more problematic than the other is a fairly new one, and I don’t subscribe to it. That said, if I’m referring to a group of people, one or more of whom I know are uncomfortable being referred to as “queer,” then I’ll use LGBT+ instead.
I’m interested to know if Maddie and Max or any of our followers have heard of differentiation between the terms not based on the “q slur” argument.
