Some doodles I did on the side yesterday night ( @blesstale drew Zunde that there ) including Dreby taking his first steps. I saw this kid screaming “NOOOO!” at some meat in a grocery store before running to his mom, so there we go ✌️
so some fun facts about working in carpentry (from someone in the field) that probably no one wants but could be fun for writing about julia and mags with:
it is so so important to maintain a positive relationship with your clients and that’s probably why mags is so proud of his rustic hospitality and wants to use it at every corner because your relationships and reputation is half the job
for one you get returning clients and tends to be the best and most reliable source of income and you also usually will end up getting gifts from them too which is, sweet,
if they’re doing pretty well off during a year i’m almost certain that they offer discounts for their services for the poorer members of raven’s roost, mangus in particular has a “doggy discount” that if they own a dog and they let it work with him they get a good discount
both of them (+plus stephen) are probably ambidextrous to a degree as when working on repeat projects, you tend to get really tired and sore and continue working until that arm gives out and then switch to the other to be able to continue working
going with that, you get paid by commission or project usually and so hypothetically you could pick up as many as possible (or as many as the union will allow) and probably will do that a couple times and you could literally blow out your entire body but be set for the year in a couple weeks
going with the stress on the body, the physical labor definitely means that they have bad knees and probably a bad arm as well not to mention if there is a lot of heavy lifting you can get multiple hairpin fractures along your spine and legs causing intense pain that cannot be treated
also if they’re working with saws (which i’m pretty sure trav did say were in the pocket workshop) then i have no idea why mags reacted so badly to losing a finger because everyone i have ever worked with has or has almost cut off their finger once a week
also you get a very high tolerance for pain (which probably helps mags as being a sword for hirer) like i have literally sliced my entire forearm open and just wrapped it up and continued working
since raven’s roost has a carpentry district, that most likely means that they have a lumber sister town that provides all of the resources
and again, going with the importance of rustic hospitality, if you’re friends with the lumber providers then you will get first pick on the quality wood and quality literally will save you days of work
if there’s a bad harvest one year then it will fucking suck because people don’t stop needing furniture or buildings and you as the carpenter have to pick up the slack for the shitty warped wood and most projects will take about double the time
woodworking is a skill trade and has to be learned over years so most likely by the time mags came along julia was already extremely skilled and is able to do commissions and bids on her own and has her own reputation in ravens roost (which…tbh mags could have very well apprenticed under her)
it is extremely hard to go from apprenticing one carpenter to another because even the basics get muddled with your own style to the point where most people measure in different ways and cutting something wrong (especially cutting it short) will waste so much material thus mags being brand new to apprenticing under stephen probably takes years while jules just laughs each time he fucks up a leg of a chair
“Hunk Pidge McClain, you were named after two of my best friends, who were with me from the very beginning. And also because your dad wouldn’t let me name you Megatron, because he likes to suck the fun out of everything.”
Good morning lovelies! It’s only Tuesday and I already wish it was Saturday. I’m going to try to finish all these requests so I can take some more and really focus on my next series that I can hopefully start writing this weekend! I hope you all have a wonderful day, and if you ever have any questions or just need someone to talk to, please don’t hesitate to ask or message me. I hope you enjoy this anon if you’re out there. Much love. I love you all, xoxo
Young!avenger x Peter Parker and that they get caught making out by Steve or Tony?
“Hey babe.” You slid your arms around his torso, kissing his cheek. He smiled, putting his warm hands over yours.
“Hey, love.” He took your arms away from him, spinning himself around so that he was facing you. “What’s up?”
“You got a minute?” A mischievous look came across your face as you batted your eyelashes up at him. “Mm, come on.” You gave him your best puppy dog eyes and took his hand. You swiftly brought him down the hall, giggling. He shook his head, chuckling at your giddiness. You pulled him into your room, wiggling your eyebrows suggestively. He closed the door softly behind him and you pulled him down for a kiss. His hands wrapped gently around your waist, fitting your bodies against each other perfectly. Your fingers laced through his soft hair. You backed him up against the bed, the backs of his knees hitting the edge. You sat him down, straddling his hips. You kissed his forehead, his hands roaming your body. He crashed into your lips, and you hummed against his. Your hands were on the back of his neck, occasionally running through his hair. His lips were soft and warm, the sensation filling your stomach with butterflies.
“God, you’re so beautiful.” He looked up at you with loving eyes, studying your every feature. A shade of pink arose on your cheeks and you bit your lip, a small smile pulling at the corners of your mouth.
“I love you, Peter Parker. More than you’ll ever know.” Your E/C eyes glistened against the light that was coming through the windows. Your kissed his lips tenderly, shivers going up your spine. His hands traced alone the small of your back, the feeling making your breath hitch.
Peter took the opportunity and explored your mouth. You let him in, giving him dominance. His lips unlatched from yours, traveling to your neck. He placed feather light kisses along your jaw, and began sucking on the sweet spot on your neck. You sighed, the feeling sending some type of release through your body. He made his way back up to your lips, sending you both into quiet bliss.
The door swung open, revealing a grease covered Tony. “Hey, F/N, we need you down at-” He gaped at the sight over you on top of Peter. You startled and fell on your butt on the floor. Peter tried to nonchalantly fix his hair, trying not to act suspicious. “What the heck is going on here!?” His eyes were wide, and he was staring at the both of you and how disheveled you looked. Tony was waving his arms around, shocked.
You cleared your throat. “Uh, hey Tony, what’s up?” You laughed nervously, and Peter was smiling awkwardly.
“What’s up? Really? Is that the best you can do?” He crossed his arms over his chest, giving you a look. Peter slowly got off the bed, trying to escape. “And where do you think you’re going?” Tony glared daggers at Peter, scaring him shitless.
“Uhh, no..where?” He slowly backed up back to the bed, taking a seat.
“And this is why it’s a bad idea to have two raging hormonal teenagers in the same building.” He rolled his eyes at you, shaking his head. “Whatever. Just-I never want to have to walk in on that again. For Christ’s sake, lock the door next time.” He turned on his heel, walking out the door. He shouted from the hallway. “Come on you two, we have to get to work.”
You and Peter turned to each other, blushing. You burst out laughing and pulled him off the bed, leading him out into the hallway. All Tony did as he walked away was chuckle, shaking his head. You guys were cute together, but sometimes too cute for his liking.
I hoped you enjoyed this cute, funny little oneshot. Have an amazing day and remember that I think you’re beautiful and that if I could, I would send you a pizza because I love you guys that much. xoxo
I see people have noticed the SQ CROWN preview posted by Yonkou Productions the other day doesn’t include any mention of DGM.
I wasn’t gonna say anything about it yet, since we’re still two weeks out from the magazine’s release, but since people are talking now…
As I’ve said before, I honestly don’t think we should believe anything Shueisha / Jump says about DGM until it actually comes to pass. Because, since roughly last August, everything they promised about DGM has been a lie. Literally, everything. The Gray Log is still indefinitely postponed (and we don’t know anything about the new art book Hoshino was working on). The DGM Hallow blu-rays are canceled. And so on, and so forth…
So, really, we shouldn’t expect a new chapter in two weeks, even though the last CROWN issue made an apparent promise that there’d be some big DGM chapter in April, and we’d finally get all the answers to our burning questions.
Personally, I think it’s best to err on the side of caution and expect nothing. Then, if there miraculously is a chapter, we can all be pleasantly surprised.
At this point, I’m kinda bummed watching everyone expect something great every time there’s a CROWN release, only to get nothing (or, you know, 7 pages, which is too close to 0 for comfort).
I’d recommend we all be cautious about getting too hyped up over a potential chapter, given the recent string of disappointments.
In a week or so, the Jump website will likely post the cover and TOC for the April CROWN, and then we’ll know for sure whether or not they’ve let us down again. But, like I said, it’s not looking good, and it hasn’t for a long time, so don’t get too excited yet. I hate watching you all get upset. :(
If it turns out that there is a new DGM chapter on the 14th, then awesome. We’ll have a huge party and ten thousand cool edits and tons of new art, and it’ll be great!
