I am back yet again for another maidsona because t w o a r en ’ t e n o ug h
Okay, so this is Vanilla! A sweet sounding name but actually she’s much less pure and sweet
She is a huge liar, don’t trust her at all costs. She’ll tell you if she’s lying because she thinks that it’ll make her a little less scummy, but she makes it so vague and confusing you don’t know if she’s being serious or not. She tends to let her mouth run so she can be sometimes insensitive but she does sometimes know when boundaries are too much, the most she can really do is make vague insults, vague threats, and is smug throughout most of the time to you, anyone, or no one in particular at all. For the most part, she’s annoying but if you can handle harmless mind games then she’s kind of okay.
Her masters are Sugartale!Pap and Sans. They don’t know why they got her from the streets but she’s relatively bearable for the most part.
I swear I felt creative today and wanted to do something idk sorry for another maid haha
What to do when you have an art block? Buy Kyle’s awesome watercolor brushes, and draw braiding Eds! it’s frickin hard and s o m u c h f u n !!! I probably got the anatomy wrong, but still, I had such a good time drawing these. They are not in a particular order, I was just messing around.
Dragon Age: Inquisition companions reacting to a young inquisitor (3 to 9) asking if they can sleep next to them after a nightmare concerning Redcliffe Castle. Especially if said companions were the ones who died protecting them as Dorian brought them back to the present.
Cassandra: She blinks at them through the darkness of night, and after a moment’s hesitation, consents and allows it. She’s awkward, but they go to sleep quickly, feeling safe near her. She eventually drifts off as well, feeling pity for the young one.
Iron Bull: He’s a little worried he’ll roll over on them, so he lays there motionlessly as they cuddle up against him and quietly go to sleep. He eventually drifts off, frozen in place, minding the spot the child chose to sleep in against him.
Blackwall: Awkwardly, he shrugs and allows it, unsure of himself as the child curls up against him and goes to sleep. He had heard about what happened in Redcliffe, and he understands their wanting to be with someone, but… him? He feels peace settle over him as the child begins to snore, quiet pride and quiet duty, and he follows suit.
Sera: She wordlessly pulls open the cover and lets them crawl in, and the two sleep soundly as she gently puts an arm over them to reassure them that she is real and they are safe.
Varric: He allows it, for once quiet as slumber threatens to take him back. He grunts as they push against him, and he relinquishes a sigh. “You’re safe, kid. We’re all okay.” The words settle them as much as he wishes it would settle his nerves, and he drifts off as they do.
Cole: He doesn’t sleep, but he lies down and lets the child cuddle up against him. “Warm and comforting, arms of love pulling me close, warding demons off, you feel safe. You are safe. I’ll do my best.” He lies there as long as they sleep, and feels happy for doing so– he helped.
Dorian: He’s a little worried and unsure of how exactly to comfort them. “Are you sure you want to sleep in my bed? Not with Cassandra or… someone else?” he asks warily. The child insists and crawls under the sheets. Dorian sits there for a moment, a bit befuddled, but the child starts drawing quiet little breaths as they fall to sleep, and he follows suit quietly.
Solas: He quietly allows it. “Come, da’len; I will ensure no demons serve you nightmares. The majesty of the Fade will guide us to peaceful slumber.” His words soothe them, and both drift off in peace.
Vivienne: Normally, she would adamantly refuse, but the child is teary and shaking, so she sighs and lifts the sheet up. “Don’t plan on making a habit of this.” she warns. At the same time, she feels something bubbling in her chest, something like warmth and quiet pride, and she drifts off to sleep peacefully.
Josephine: Like Sera, she quietly holds the sheets open, remembering times she had to do this with Yvette or any of her younger siblings. She has performed this duty many times, one of comfort and love, and she feels their panic fading away as they curl up against her. Both drift off quickly.
Leliana: Without so much as a word or a glance up, she holds the sheet up and allows them in before drifting off to sleep, her arm settling over them quietly. They feel extra safe– nothing can hurt them when the Spymaster is there.
Cullen: He’s half-asleep, and a bit too incoherent to process what’s going on, but he gives in. He finds the next morning that his own nightmares were fewer and of less intensity, and he only prays the poor child felt safer, too.
An assortment of bg animations I did for Hiveswap! All of these started off as flat paintings from our super-talented background team, which I then altered in Photoshop CS6 to make what you see here! I honestly can’t remember how I did some of these… Anyway, I worked as a freelance artist and got a ton of fun odd jobs!
