Yes finished! I was just thinking, why make a huge deal about the sufferer’s death? Wouldn’t it just create more trouble than it was worth to demonstrate your power, like make him into a symbol for rebellion. I like the idea that the Condesce wasn’t directly involved with the matter and gets pretty pissed with how it was handled after
I’m so excited to finally get a glimpse of the Dark Carnival!
But the question remains, whose memory is this? It can’t be Gamzee’s because a) he never saw the Dark Carnival while he was alive (presumably it’s off-planet?) and these bubbles are memories not imaginary places, and b) you have to be dead to have memory bubbles, and there are no dead Gamzees.
I don’t think it’s Kurloz’s because I’m not sure that Beforus would have a Dark Carnival like this.
So… new question: Can ancestors exist in dream bubbles? Because I know who I hope this is…
I was going to give a reason why this existed, but then I realized it’s been so long since I sketched it I’ve forgotten why I originally needed so badly to draw the Grand Highblood as a punk. But regardless of the reason, horn-engravings and horn-studs are important to me.
…i don’t have an explanation for why he’s sherbet orange though. :I
GHB is a guest singer here!!! Because the band I’m taking as the base for this [the songs!] has a song very reminiscent of the Signless execution [at least to me?] and both the condemned and executioner have a voice!
I imagine them both singing and staying very on character but then at the end they just hug because they’re friends and things are ok because this is a happy AU.
