finally got the inspiration for it

Finally got to draw them again since Robin’s words describing their relationship in dance metaphor has inspired me a lot. And talking amongst dear friends, we like the idea of Oswald constantly complaining while Sofia is so calm lol. And we love how something as simple as kiss on the fingers and knuckles can be emotionally intimate.


So I started this florist piece like half a year ago and I finally got enough inspiration to finish it. I got the idea of Steve and Bucky retiring as heroes and opening up a small florist shop to live a simple life ; w ; just let them have peace already

Complicating the Final Battle: Fantasy Factions in the War for Dawn

The more I’ve been thinking about a number of things bookwise and show-wise, it is becoming clear that a war between humanity + dragons + wolves vs. the Others, whose perspective we have never gotten and are for all intents and purposes assumed to be ice zombies, is a very overused trope for all that George Martin has been criticising Tolkien imitators for. I wrote a post trying to gauge who the fantasy antagonists of ASOIAF are and if Robert Frost’s Fire and Ice is the inspiration, then perhaps the two extreme elements are both the fantasy antagonists. 

In that post I postulated that the Others are sentient beings as they display the ability to make a deal with Craster and if the Children created the Others as weapons against the First Men settling in Westeros and cutting down trees, the question then arises when did they and why are they coming now. This is a question that is left very, very vague. But I also put forward the possibility that the orcs that GRRM keeps bringing up may also include Targaryens and dragons. Then comes the question if you kill them all or do you make a policy that controls their power. I believe Jon, being the son of ice and fire, will make a pact with the Others to end the war after a fair share of fighting. However, Dany may not cooperate because she did lose a dragon in this mix and things can go awry. I do buy into the assumption that Daenerys and Jon will conflict with each other as a kind of Achilles and Hector, which I elaborate in that post. These are the assumptions I am operating on this first part, which are necessary to understand the second part of my theory (Read the linked post for your own convenience). However over discussions @trinuviel brought up how even this still seems like a very conventional scenario because of the involvement of religion (or religion labelling) in this mix. I think she may have a point.

because we belong to the song,
and the rock goes on and on and on…

this started out as a jim henson birthday gift… thing… but look at how that turned out. im a little under 2 months late haha

ive recently started having Big Boy Feelings for cantus and how much i love his character, and i got to rewatch the honk of honks a couple days ago. it finally inspired me to pick this up again!
this was partly painting, partly not. the face, hair, and eyes were all painted on one layer, as were the cloak and pipe. i developed a whole new brush for it! (well… not whole new, but settings id never used before.) it was fun!
im really proud of how the pipe turned out! im slowly learning how to draw it, and though im sure its not the most accurate in the world, i like it.

i also have a cold and it’s 2 in the morning… i should probably go to bed. im sorry if theres any mistakes!!!

cantus belongs to jim henson, and so does fraggle rock!
the watermark means this is mine; that’s just another blog of mine, my main

thank you!!

I attended a writing clinic today which lasted about 5 hours. It was super intense but also super inspiring and I learned a lot about writing in general and my personal writing in particular. It was an overall amazing experience and I enjoyed it a lot. I got complimented on my final work in the end, which was amazing, since the teacher was a writer I really admire, so it was really great hearing good things from him about my writing and being so encouraging. And, since the last exercise was based on improvisation and combining multiple prompts (one new prompt every 5 to 7 minutes for about 50 minutes, all of them connecting on a whole piece of short fiction and being as cohesive as possible), it was very challenging for me, because I’m very analytical and don’t tend to improvise at all. It went much better than I expected. Anyway, I wanted to share this because not those many people around me care much about how I did and sometimes posting about stuff gives you a sense of sharing, whether people care or not lmao 

Scorose Fanfiction #147

New Rules by scorpiusrose (aka me)
Rated M | On-Going

So yes I know I literally JUST posted the sneak peak for this story, but I got so excited that I had to finish it and now, at 3AM in the morning, I have finally posted it for you all to read. (Yes I’m aware I only have 4 hours left to sleep before a full day of work tomorrow)

BUT, I am so hyped and so excited. I really liked the idea of this fic, and I was inspired by the lovely Dua Lip and her song, ‘New Rules’. 


Rule 1: Don’t pick up the phone. Rule 2: Don’t let him in. Rule 3: Don’t be his friend. It’s the perfect recipe to get over him, but she ends up breaking every single rule.

I’m not going to give away any more of the story because I don’t want to spoil it, but stay tune for more!

I know I’m not the most reliable person in terms of updating, but I swear reading your reviews really do motivate me so much more. So please, do your girl a favour and leave a review, constructive criticism is most welcomed or any suggestions/ideas on how to move forward with the story.

Anyway, I’m extremely sleepy right now and I need to rest before work. Hope you enjoy the story!

Prompt #152

“How do you ‘accidentally’ become the leader of a creepy ghost army?!”

“You know, it’s a really long story.”


svtfoe ml au sketch dump that I did during my college second sem which I decided to finally color this vacay pHEW

@disney-n-stuff‘s wonderful artwork and designs got me hook up on this au aaa a a a aaaa 

Also, I tried to give gentlebug! Marco’s ladybug costume a lil spin, it’s majorly inspired from his outfit as adult! Marco from season 2. Especially the opportunity to place the miraculous earrings to the same spot his earrings as adult! Marco were placed, I thought it’ll be pretty cool.


C.S. Pacat & Johanna The Mad on their new comic series Fence!

Writer C.S. Pacat (best known for her Captive Prince series) has been mercilessly teasing her fans with a new Top Secret Project™ for the last few days. Well, the wait is finally over, as the L.A. Times just broke the announcement for her new comic series, Fence!

Teaming up with the ridiculously talented artist Johanna The Mad, Fence follows Nicholas Cox as he joins the world of fencing at an elite boys school and becomes embroiled in the drama of competitive sports, team romance and rivalries, and good old self-discovery.

On finding inspiration for Fence, C.S. Pacat says, “I got really into sports comics in Japan, where I lived for about five years. I love the intense rivalries, the striving, the way you can take characters to their breaking point. Haikyuu!! and Hikaru no Go are easily some of my favourite comics of all time. Fence is like my love letter to the genre.

At the same time, I’m interested in female gaze and queer gaze art. I wanted to make something that had all the drama and intensity of a sports comic, while also being joyously and unabashedly queer.  I was really inspired by Ngozi Ukazu’s fantastic hockey web comic Check, Please!, and the recent Japanese animation Yuri!!! on Ice. I started to wonder, what happens when those energies come out in a combat sport—when you add in the danger and stakes of fencing?”

Fence means the world to me,” says Johanna The Mad. “It has always been one of my biggest dreams to draw comics, but I never thought I’d be able to work on one that I’d end up fangirling about!”

Johanna’s artwork captures everything that is hot, dangerous, and exciting about fencing,” adds Pacat.

Fence #1 hits comic shops in November, and it’ll have covers from Johanna The Mad and Kevin Wada (and maybe someone else we’ll seeee~) and colors from Rebecca Nalty.
