sometimes the best medicine is just taking a break from the world. finding a little corner of the universe and allowing yourself to sit down and just breathe. to recuperate. because the truth is, life isn’t a straight path. it’s curvy and bumpy and filled with mountains and oceans for you to cross and you can’t keep running on empty and expect yourself to thrive. eventually you will break down and need some road-side assistance and that’s okay! take a break. get some rest. make the call. hold someone’s hand. allow yourself room to heal and to better yourself. the world is yours, you have all the time you need to heal, so take some today.
I love the people who aren’t afraid to be silly and laugh wholeheartedly in the presence of complete strangers. I love sharing that kind of open-minded joy with new friends. I could spend hours upon hours just laughing and sharing stupid jokes and puns until our cheeks get sore. If everyone else is happy, I’m happy.
A work in progress sketch inspired by the headcanon/theories presented by @owlteria and Kya / fatsthechocobo which have been very interesting to read through~! Some writing snippets with lovely art can be found here and here for those curious, too!
They’ve been piecing together theories related to Ardyn’s past, and part of the fun is reading up about everyone’s interpretations of what may have been. I like their idea that the Astral known as Eos, Goddess of Dawn, is Ardyn’s mother, as well as their thoughts about who the “jealous king” really is. For now, at least I can say that I got to practice drawing Ardyn some more, even if it’s a younger version, haha.
