A Cresswell-Tangled crossover! I started this thing over a year ago, but it wasn’t working out so I stopped and was like I can always get back to it later, knowing that that would probably not happen lol. I still had the unfinished piece in my drafts, so every time I went to drafts it was there glaring at me. And now I finally finished it because the shipweeks gave me a reason to pick it back up :p I finished most of the line-art last time, but I had to redraw a lot because it’s been over a year and I’ve improved since then, and obviously something wasn’t working out before. That I was able to make it work this time means I actually learned things last year, which feels good :) Anyway! Today’s shipweek theme was ‘lights’ and this thing accidentally fits because of the lyrics, so I waited till today to post it.
I LOVED WHEN MAGNUS MET JAMES IN THE MIDNIGHT HEIR AND JAMES TELLS MAGNUS HIS NAME IS JAMES HERONDALE AND MAGNUS SAID “I thought it would be something like that” BECAUSE OF COURSE THAT’S HIS NAME,, of fucking course Will and Tessa named him after Jem, that’s such a them thing to do. If Magnus knew anything about A Tale of Two Cities and how much they love it, I don’t doubt he would have been amused by Lucie’s name
I love them so much okay
Ok so this rant has been a long time comming. Recently Pat R, author of the amazing kingkiller chronicles ( a dnd inspired book series about a bard who goes on crazy adventures and makes bad decisions, if you haven’t read i would recommend ) released artwork for the cover of the first books 10 year publication anniversary and then was swamped with tweets regarding the 3rd book which has yet to be finished. Stuff like “idk about art wheres 3rd book” blah blah blah.
And honestly? Fuck off out the fandom if you think having a book in your hands instantly is more important than the quality of the book itself. I personally would wait 10 fucking years if it ment a book Pat was proud of and wasn’t a rushed mess.
Ive seen this happen to sooo many creators who are forced to sacrifice quality content for the sake of impatient fans who would probably slam the content apon release for being rushed and unfinished.
And dont tell me its not that hard to finish a book/comic/whatever bc have you ever tried?????? Like genuinely sat down and tried to write novels with interesting characters, plot and settings while also pumping them out as quickly as possible,AND juggle your other responsabilitys, you’d burn out with a half assed series.
Moral of the story? BE FUCKING PATIENT WHEN IT COMES TO CONTENT CREATORS WHETHER IT BE BOOKS/TV SHOWS/COMICS/YOUTUBERS/FANFICTION WHATEVER
