dunya's art

Ohtaka’s Notes:

Pic (1): “concept art of Dunya. She looked the same as she is now, except for the hair accessory that was removed later on.”

Pic (2): “concept art for Isaac. At first, he was going to be the prince of Magnostadt with Dunya as his attendant. I don’t remember exactly why I switched their positions.”

This one is for Hagar,
mashaAllah her sabr
inspires wonder,
a blessing to discover,
the black mother of Ismael
not just in tales of the ancient
but a motivation
in the scales of greatness–
tawakkul, her patience
outweighed the trials and tribulations
she faced in
the heat of Arabia 
with no water to quench,
starving, until her breath 
was calmed by Allah, she saw
Jibreel who was sent–
not a mirage,
giving the will to go beyond
what the people would have thought:
a woman who was strong,
a woman who we are taught
was blessed by God.
Cause this one’s for the sisters,
important historic figures–
since day one the Sahaba witnessed
the blessed position of women,
so let’s relive it..

So @chimelon​ linked me a Song sung by Mikleo’s VA, and I was crying over the perfection (Credit: Dock of the Bay (Otis Redding) Cover by Michael Johnston)

I kept thinking about an AU where Mikleo is a guitarist singing bittersweet songs in a coffeeshop of some sorts. His bracelet belongs to his old childhood friend who went abroad to study. Unfortunately Mikleo never had the chance to tell him how he felt before he left.
