First pass at some concept art for a few characters from Lock’s universe! All of these are likely to change 1000 times before they become ‘official’ (if they even survive long enough to end up in the story) and don’t even get me started on colour schemes…

scooby doo ep where a background object clearly shaded differently from the rest, yet left ignored and untouched, instead an object indistinguishable from the rest of the background being used. a chase where the gang come out of the same doors they came in. daphne falls into a trap mid-episode, and nobody acknowledges it, talking as if she's still there. pulling the mask off the bad guy, and there's nothing underneath. vhs glitches near-constantly, even beyond the tv, on the edges of your vision

Carl the Animator: “That… ok, that’s freaky.”

Ted the Animator:’Was I sleeping, while the others suffered? Am I sleeping now? Tomorrow, when I wake, or think I do, what shall I say of today?’

Carl the Animator: “…huh?”

Ted the Animator: ‘That with Carl my friend, at this place, until the fall of night, I waited for Scooby-Doo errors?’

Carl the Animator: “…I don’t….”

Ted the Animator: ‘That fans passed, with their messages, and that they spoke to us? Probably. But in all that, what truth will there be?’

Carl the Animator: “What are you even– what’s going on?”

Ted the Animator: ‘He’ll know nothing. He’ll tell me of the weird faces he drew, and I’ll give him a carrot.’

Carl the Animator: “Ted, you’re freaking me out.”

Ted the Animator: ‘Astride of a grave, and a difficult birth. Down in the hole, lingeringly, the gravedigger puts on the forceps. We have time to grow old. The air is full of our cries… but habit is a great d–’

Carl the Animator: “TED!”

Ted the Animator: “What?! Relax, I’m doing Waiting for Godot, that message reminded me of it.”

Carl the Animator: “I don’t know what that is, but it’s weirdin’ me out, so stop.”

Ted the Animator: “It’s a Beckett play, and that was all a rather clever paraphrasing of Vladimir’s monologue, if you ask me.”

Carl the Animator: “I didn’t ask you. I did, however, ask you to stop, if that’s any consolation.”

Ted the Animator: “Come on, everyone likes a good post-war existential tragicomedy now and then.”

Carl the Animator: ”…this is why we don’t let you do PR for the show, Ted.”

Flirting Headcanons

Send an ask if you want characters that are not currently listed here and I’ll add them on!

For now I’ll just add some popular characters and my personal favorites.

The Anarchs

Nines Rodriguez

- A lot of people seem to think he is smooth, but I actually do not agree. He is, by no means, terrible at flirting, but he is not about to sweep the populous off their feet. This is mostly due to a lack of experience. Nines is a very busy man, so he usually does not pursue anything.

- If he is familiar with the person he is flirting with, he is a lot more relaxed and will usually flirt in the form of jokes to try and make his crush laugh. If that doesn’t work and he really likes the person, he might just become very blunt and tell them about his feelings.

-If he is unfamiliar with them, he’ll talk to them more. If it turns out they weren’t quite what he was expecting, he’ll let them go. Otherwise, it follows a similar pattern as above.

Smiling Jack

- Jack will happily flirt back with anyone brave enough to try, but he won’t think much of it or think they are even remotely serious.

- If they are serious, he is honestly shocked and would ask them if they even know what they are getting into. If the continue, he just rolls with it. So long as they don’t mind him and how he works, he’s cool with them too.

Jeanette Voerman

- She’ll flirt all day, but honestly it is just for the purpose of screwing with someone or to screw someone. If that is what they are after, great! Otherwise, they’ll have to tell her directly.

-If someone tells her they are being serious, she shuts down and will probably avoid them for a little while since she doesn’t know what to do with that. What do you mean someone wants to talk to her and be with her for her? That sounds really fake.

-If given enough time and if they stick around, Jeanette might come around to give it a shot. Her flirting isn’t near as good, but it is at least honest. Be patient with her or else she will run off.

Isaac Abrams

-Well, at the very least it will put a smile on his face. He won’t think they are being that serious when they start flirting with him, and besides, he’s been around actors pretty much the entirety of his unlife, so it doesn’t mean much to him.

- If they are persistent, he will ask if they’re playing with him or if they really mean what they say. If they confirm it, he laughs a little before thanking them. Makes him feel good for a little while.

- Isaac is a bit more on the old fashioned side. His flirting is a lot more like courting, just a bit more tailored for Kindred. He would still like to get them nice gifts, blood packs, and so on.


Sebastian LaCroix

-By flirting you mean lots of gifts right? Because that is what you get with LaCroix. Anything that person wants is now theirs. He thinks that will get his message across.

-If that doesn’t work, he will begrudgingly try to tell them how he feels, but man is it awkward with him. Hopefully the person he is talking to will get the idea. 

-If he is interested in someone and they flirt with him, boy is he a mess. Otherwise, he is very unimpressed and will likely have the Sheriff see them out personally if they do not stop.

Therese Voerman

-She will definitely ask the person flirting with her if that is meant to impress her, because it is not working. She is very cold at first, so even if she does like the person, do not expect her to be very open to the idea of flirting.

-If she really likes the person, she might start flirting with them, but it is… not very good. They’re blunt compliments on their appearance or abilities most of the time. If the person she is flirting with catches on, she might clam up, but she won’t stop them if they start flirting back.

-Once she is very comfortable with them, her flirts are mostly playful jabs. She does not actually mean anything by them. It is just who she is. If her partner is hurt by it, she’ll stop.

Maximillian Strauss

 - Considering how he reacted to VV blowing him a kiss in the opening scene… I can’t imagine Strauss is particularly interested in romantic advances from another kindred…

 - However, surprisingly, he does get easily flustered, and often awkwardly straightens himself out and loosens his collar if someone gets particularly flirtatious with him.

Bertram Tung

 - Bertram’s totally game for a bit of harmless flirting every so often! Just so long as it doesn’t progress too far as to endanger his position within his clan or in the eyes of the Camarilla, since he’d rather lie low and avoid attracting too much attention to himself.

 - Especially since Imalia has a habit of prying into his business and asking about “that pretty little bitch” he was flirting with.

 - He’s not really one for giving compliments in person, but he will drop the odd message by text or email to someone he’s got his eye on. Expect some weird pet names too.



-BOY HE CAN BE OBLIVIOUS. For someone who is well known for his observations into the lives of others and the meaning behind Kindred existence, he is pretty slow when it comes to realizing that someone is flirting instead of being playful.

-He doesn’t mind flirting, in fact he appreciates it once he gets over the initial shock! Just don’t expect him to jump right in immediately if he is not that familiar with them.

-If he is, however, Beckett is good when it comes to talking. Flirting is no exception.

Velvet Velour

-Okay it is actually really tough to tell when VV is flirting with someone and she means it. She is a very flirty person in the first place, so it is easy to mistake it for VV being, well, herself. It wouldn’t surprise me if this leaves both parties very frustrated with the situation.

-If the person she is hitting on does not get the message, she reaches out and grabs their hand and pulls them closer so only they can hear what she says. “I mean it.” She’ll whisper, looking up at them with a soft look on her face. “I am serious about this.”

-Chances are the person she is flirting with won’t know what to do initially since VV is actually trying to win them over. If they want her to stop, she’ll be incredibly upset, but she will respect their wishes. She might become a bit cold to them though. If they start to hit back, she acts as if she is alive again. She is guilty of getting really giggly when people she likes flirt with her. 

Ash Rivers

- At first, he just stares at them. He’s an actor! He’s heard it all, and it all just sounds so… empty to him. Do not expect him to appreciate it or flirt back, especially post-Society of Leopold.

- Once he realizes that they are being serious, he gets very confused. He thought Kindred were not capable of affection or love. It was one of the main reasons why he became frustrated about his condition.

- He might warm up to the idea if given enough time to think about how he feels about them. If he can love again, he’ll take the chance.
