My feelings about adult dominant solid 7/10 Karkat are strong

you know, atm I just don’t physically have the patience for finished pieces, given my brains nonstop chaotic drive to draw everything at once, so I end up with pages on pages of little bits and scenes like this


These are pulled from The Eurydice Suite which I misspelled no less that 6 times trying to type out, by the ASTOUNDINGLY TALENTED CallmeArcturus

honestly if you’re into Dirk/Jake or DaveKat and haven’t read at least a little something by Arc you’re missing out

What Guns and Ships feels like
  • Lafayette: You want to fight for your land back?!
  • Washington: I need my right hand man back!
  • Lafayette: yeah getcha right hand man back, i know u gotta getcha right hand man back,i know you gottaputsomethOughTINTOTHELETTERBUTTHESOONERTHEBETTERTOGETYOUR RIGHT HAND MAN BAC K!
  • Laf: *explodes into red white and blue pieces of confetti*
  • Washington:
  • Washington: oh dear

I slightly changed the design of John’s costume
And a little bit about John’s abilities: he can completely turn into a stream of air or arrange hurricanes and other wind things. He also can find out where someone has trouble, because he literally, listens to the wind. When he uses his powers, his skin turns white.
About Dave, from a young age his brother taught him self-defense and art of the sword, but over time he just abandoned this case, until the moment when his life did not appear Windman. He promised himself that he must protect him. Despite everything…
this one


The jewelry is very very relevant in this here Paradise AU. The Striders (really all of the desert dwellers) wear a lot of thin gold pieces, light and loose, form and function. They don’t always have it on tho, that would be bonkers. The colored stones are vivid and soft, think a variety of topaz and quartz, with wire wrappings around blown glass in similar hues.

Jake, however, mister rough and rowdy gentleman himself, wears a mix of vine/leather strung fangs and vertebrae (ie his bracelet). His jewelry tends to run heavier, but less in number. Think Aztec with deep colored gems like Emerald, Cobalt, or Serpentine. He also carves bone into things like knives and little figures, but that’s a later conversation.

Phew long winded post. Anyways Jake’s tattoos are still on the mend, but there’s gonna be foliage and skulls I can guarantee you that.

Watch me wake up tomorrow and rewrite all this.

OK get this.

Something like a Desert Oasis AU that’s got the Strider boys as princes (maybe I’m still hashing this out) or something and Jake is of course this damn cute jungle cat adventurer that finds their city. And Dirks interest.

Karkat is some flavor of exotic pet/slave from the northern Alternia and par for course he’s saved and promptly swept right the fuck off his feet by Dave.

Honestly I just wanted to design this more than wring a plot out of it, bare with me.
