I don't know if you could see kanda/alma as a rarepair still?? we have wayyy more fanart now, and way more people talk about it? back in time was like 10 people from this hole (and HUGE) fandom. But yeahh i think people are more accepting of yulma now?

I would definitely still call it a rarepair. Yes, it’s got a lot more fanart now - but how much of that is new anime hype?

I metric it by how much fic shows up on ao3 in comparison to other pairings, and it’s… not a lot. Really not a lot. The fandom is… honestly about the same level of activity it had in 2010-11, based on what portion of people’s blogs it is. There’s a few diehards but most people aren’t that into it. And of those, most people aren’t into Alma/Kanda.

It’s not as rare, but I wouldn’t remove the title of rarepair any time soon.

I’ve been looking for an excuse to draw Queen Margaery forever, so yay you guys! \o/ Uhm, I hope you don’t mind I put your requests together? I wasn’t planning to, but then I had to do this twice over cos it’s a new face for me… Anyway, I hope you guys like it.

PS. Please don’t worry if it takes me a while to get to your number. I’m already thinking on it! Just RL, is all. x)

You know when sometimes you start drawing and you’re using your usual formula but suddenly there are all these problems and you look back at your formula and you realize you don’t know anything about anything? This was one of those times. I wanted to make something nice but the colors were so far off the mark it’s not even funny… and after that I didn’t really know what I was doing anymore. (My buddy OBQ can attest to this fact.) But at least I ended up with something quite different from the usual?

I never had a legit favorite GoT character until Oberyn though. I think he’s quite wise and after that conversation with Tyrion, I was sold like OMG finally, an actual decent human being… who isn’t suffering / being punished for it in some way, you know? Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken – it just makes sense. And for a few episodes I felt there might be hope yet, in the ever bleak GoT universe, yeah? Ahaha joke’s on me.
