@dirk-dreamer’s Piper, the Witch Apprentice.

Ever since his brain went sideways, Deputy “Nodogsnodogsnodogs” Langdon has been feuding with Piper about her furbaby, Jenna.

The constant harassment and worrying about what he might be capable of since his “awakening” is beginning to take its toll on her, emotionally. If it weren’t for the fact that Sage needed her help, she’d leave Dogbane Hollow in search of more pet-friendly territory.

As it stands, she can’t abandon her mentor… but can she protect herself and Jenna from the increasingly hostile environment?


Stephanotus floribunda is in the dogbane family Apocynaceae. Commonly known as Madagascar Jasmine, it is native to Madagascar and Southern Africa, but is a very widely cultivated ornamental plant around the world. The flowers of this species are most commonly used in wedding bouquets, both for their solid white color, and sweet smelling fragrance.

No plants or animals were harmed in the creation of this still life. It’s an imaginary compilation (using photo reference) of some common flora and fauna found on the North Atlantic seaside in summer. The bell jar displays the skeleton of a Red-winged Blackbird. Plants include flowering Common Milkweed, Spreading Dogbane, and Canada Lilies. Insects featured are found on the plants they favor. The Monarch Butterfly, Red Milkweed Beetle, and Milkweed Tussock Moth all prefer Milkweed. The beautiful Dogbane Leaf Beetle is often found on the Dogbane plant, and the Great Spangled Fritillary Butterfly and Stalk Borer Caterpillar can be found on Canada Lilies. I also added a few Periwinkle shells for a bit of flair. Watercolor.
