chlorophos

Who would be willing for a Spiderwick Chronicles ‘verse?

I’m thinking of Nightlight as one of the Elves from the books (which are in general treated much like the High Fae of myth, with the penchant for stealing interesting humans away and all); he would align himself with the Seelie Court and the growths and “horns” he sports are alike to Mycena chlorophos– the Nightlight mushroom.

He calls himself a Knight. It’s hard to tell if he’s being honest about that or not… surely any knights among the elves would be not quite so twiggy.

I couldn’t resist drawing some cute little Paras! And I couldn’t resist jumping on the Pokévariant bandwagon ;p It was a lot of fun to draw Paras with all these cool different mushrooms!

The text may be hard to read, so for those who are interested, they are, in order:


Phallus indusiatus - Veiled Lady

Geastrum corollinum - Weather Earthstar

Mycena haematopus - Bleeding Mycena

Mycena chlorophos - Luminous Mycena (normal and glowing)

Lactarius indigo - Indigo Milk Cap


I want to do more Pokévariants! It was a lot of fun! :D
