So, if you haven’t noticed, I haven’t posted any of my own stuff in a while, and that’s mostly because I would always forget to take a picture when I made progress, much less actually post anything. So, I’m gonna start doing weekly WIP Wednesdays to show what I’ve done in the past week instead of trying to make myself do daily updates, especially when there are some days I do nothing. (I’m also gonna do Finish Fridays–and if that’s not already a thing I’m making it one–to show what, if anything, I’ve finished in the last week.)
Now, for the first WIP Wednesday. This is the Birthstone Dragon SAL I’m working on, and each month, a dragon based on that month’s birthstone is released. March isn’t finished yet because I had to rush a project for a silent auction this Saturday (more on that Friday), but I finally got back around to it today. I hope to have it finished before April is released, but I’m not holding my breath.
i put extra work into this one and tried to improve some things i found wrong in the first part and since it’s my first time drawing a comic of course i’d make a mistake or two xp , and i want to thank @beanpots and you awesome people for reblogging , here’s part 2/3
can you guess what kind of flower was it XD? and get ready for the last part since it will be longer and more colorful i hope?? lol i will try to finish it this friday or saturday
There has never been a time without unicorns. We live forever. We are as old as the sky, as old as the moon! We can be hunted, trapped, we can even be killed if we leave our forests. But we do not v a n i s h.

Saturday night. Also known as the time of the week where you could have your peace and quiet. Being involved with the Blue & Gold with your boyfriend Jughead and best friend Betty, and with updates on Jason Blossom’s murder coming everyday, you had been writing constantly. Saturday night however, was your relaxation time. You had finished all your homework on Friday and Saturday morning and planned to study for your tests on Sunday. Your parents were out of town for the weekend meeting up with old friends of theirs. You were home alone for the first time in a long time and you’d be damned if you didn’t make the best of it.
Unfortunately, your peace and quiet time had been disrupted twice so far. First there were the Girl Scouts. Usually you loved them and their cute little ways to try to get you to buy their Thin Mints but today’s girls just wouldn’t chill with the bargaining. They even upped the price of their Thin Mints which they didn’t tell you about until after you had agreed to buy two orders of them. Then there was the fact that Jughead hadn’t texted you in two days. Now, usually you wouldn’t have minded, knowing that he was focused on his novel, but ghosting was unlike Jughead. Besides, you knew your boyfriend loved the drive-in theater that had bulldozed the previous day, and you wanted to be there for him. If you knew where he lived, you would’ve gone over to check on him, but you didn’t know where he lived. When you asked Jughead about it, he just mumbled something about having a rough home life and how it wasn’t a good place to hang out. He didn’t like to talk about it and you got the message. So you left it alone. You guys either stayed in your house and watched movies or went to Pop’s and chatted about life. Despite your worry, you figured Jughead just needed some time to deal with the drive-in’s destruction and tried to relax. Just as you snuggled under the blanket with your mug of hot chocolate and Netflix playing on your laptop, a knock at the door reverberated around the house. You groaned in frustration, slamming the mug down on the coffee table and throwing the blanket off. What now? You stomped over to the front door and swung it open ready to tell whoever was there off when you were greeted by the sight of Jughead. The first thing you noticed was his humongous backpack and the posters sticking out of it. Then you looked up at his eyes. He looked like he was about to cry and your heart just broke.
“Jug…” you began.
“I don’t have anywhere to go.” he said, desperately trying to keep his wavering voice steady.
You quickly ushered him in and he dropped his heavy backpack on the floor, rubbing a hand over his face.
“Jug,” you said again.
He didn’t respond. You gently turned him around and placed your hand on his cheek.
“Jughead.” you said softly.
Jughead finally looked up at you, a tear rolling down his cheek. “I don’t have anywhere to go.” he said again, softer and more broken that you had ever heard him.
You looked up at him, searching his eyes for an answer of what could’ve happened. Did his parents kick him out? If they did, why did they kick him out?
“Come on,” you said softly, leading him to the couch. “Tell me what’s going on.”
In the next few hours that followed, Jughead told you everything. Everything about his dad, his mom, and Jellybean. The Southside Serpents, his dad’s job, his mom and Jellybean’s whereabouts, and where he had been living for the past few months. When he was done, he began to cry, finally breaking down after holding it all in after for so long. You whispered reassuring words in his ear as he cried in your arms, trying to stop your own tears from falling asking yourself, Why Jughead? Out of everyone in the world, why Jughead?
After a while, you noticed that your boyfriend’s cries went from heaving sobs to small sniffles and you ran your fingers through his hair.
“Jughead?” you asked.
Jughead looked up at you, his eyes and cheeks red. He looked so vulnerable.
“You can stay here. I’ll tell my parents what you told me. They’ll understand. You can take the guest bedroom. It’s gonna be okay,” you said.
Jughead looked up at you with the softest expression you had ever seen and nodded as he pulled away from your warm embrace, wiping his eyes with his jacket sleeve.
“Thank you.” he said quietly, his voice shredded from crying.
Your heart broke for what seemed like the millionth time that night, as you tried to come up with a plan to make Jughead happy again, at least for a little while. Then it hit you. You got up and started to take the cushions off the couch and position them so they made a wall around you and Jughead. Jughead looked at you confusedly, wondering what you were doing. You pulled the crumpled blanket off the couch and draped it over the wall of cushions creating a fort. Jughead realized your intentions and cracked a smile. Ignoring your now cold hot chocolate on the coffee table, you grabbed your laptop and another blanket and crawled into the fort with Jughead.
“I know it’s not a drive-in theater, but maybe it could be our own little theater?” you asked tentatively, hoping the raven-haired boy would like it.
To your relief and delight, Jughead chuckled and nodded.
“It’s perfect.” he said.
You smiled widely as you used the last cushion to box the two of you in and you pulled the covers over you and your boyfriend, snuggling into his side. Opening your laptop and playing Witness for the Prosecution (Jughead’s choice,) the two of you began to watch. About halfway into the movie, Jughead looked down at you and realized you were asleep. He smiled and gently kissed your head.
“Thank you, Y/N. I love you.”
A/N: That was probably more angst than you wanted, but I hope the fluff in the end made up for it! For anyone wanting to know why I didn’t expand on their conversation; we know so little about Jughead’s background and family (and I’m sure they’ll go into more detail with that in future episodes) but I didn’t want to write anything that could be proved wrong as the show progresses so therefore, I’ll leave you to your theories! Also, Witness for the Prosecution is an A+ movie, I highly recommend it. :)
