have u no soul

And yep, I’m done with my sketch for Glitchtale anniversary! Here’s a brief description of what is shown here.

As per episode 3, Betty has downed Alphys and Cam (the older brother of Lily, who protected Lily by taking the stab), so I decided that Betty would be holding cards with their faces on them to show that she has dominated them.Alphys and Cam (the older brother of Lily, who protected Lily by taking the stab), so I decided that Betty would be holding cards with their faces on them to show that she has dominated them.

The soul inside Kumu, if u have been watching Glitchtale, is San’s soul. For some reason I could never make Kumu look edgy or scary, it ended up being a bit on the cute side in this sketch haha.

As a final note, I was actually planning to draw a sketch of Undyne fighting Betty, but I figured that a lot of people may sketch that, so I wanted to draw something that would be a bit more unique, hence this sketch. :)

Happy anniversary to Glitchtale AU, @camilaart

“i knew you’d come.” / “well, you’re helpless without me.”

9

so i think about Soul a lot, ergo I think about the GIANT ABDOMINAL INJURY he acquired and how it would probably take at LEAST a month of intense home care and frequent check ups to make sure the paper cut that expands half his body isnt getting infected or creating scar tissue that might impede the function of some of his more important organs (cough HIS HEART cough) and how simple tasks like bending over or running would become 40% more painful and difficult to pull off

and how much more domestic help he’ll need from his partner

it’s been two days and i need to articulate what to me was probably one of the most beautiful cinematic parallels i’ve ever seen

i can’t get over the power of that scene where anne was praying to the Virgin Mary in the moments before her impending death. of course, she didn’t die, but had constance and aramis not intervened she would have, and I almost think she knew that she was going to – and she was praying.

similarly, the scene in the cell where aramis was talking to God, begging for mercy, was incredibly moving – and he, too, thought he was having one last conversation with his lord before his death.

the camera cutting back and forth between anne’s prayer and the skirmish on the stairs was some high quality cinematography, but more importantly, i want to draw the parallel between that scene, with anne in the bedroom, and the earlier scene – with aramis in his cell

they were both praying in the moments before their supposed death

and this simultaneously united them in a profound way and threw into sharp relief the contrast in their characters – because through prayer they embodied everything that made them them

anne was praying to Mary, mother of God, speaking as one would to her queen, her lady – addressing her with humility but still articulate and controlled, kneeling at the foot of her bed, dressed in her royal silks and with her back ramrod straight. she was the embodiment of poise and grace, pale and almost ethereally beautiful, repeating a previously-memorized verse over and over and over and over again, methodic and planned. and while her prayer was the simple repetition of a few phrases, it was filled with unspoken meaning and raw emotion, a kind of desperation and anguish that swelled in the air behind the measured delivery of the prayer. this is so quintessentially anne, a girl raised to be a queen who says but two words and means whole paragraphs, who hides her deepest emotions behind polite statements and who manages to say everything while saying nothing at all. the words of the prayer itself detached anne from the forgiveness she was asking for – “deliver us, at the hour of our death” – once again highlighting anne’s ability to talk about herself while never actually mentioning herself once. how many conversations had she had with constance or the king or even aramis, where she was so clearly talking about herself, her love, her hurt, where she managed to externalized and speak of herself through speaking of someone or something else? it’s a skill that’s almost anne’s hallmark in the show, and it is highlighted in the prayer that she recites.  

aramis, on the other hand, spoke directly to God Himself, as one might speak to a parent you love and respect deeply, but whom you have disappointed. aramis has always been on first name terms with God, and here you saw him slumped against the wall, disheveled, in his dusty leathers and chains, stumbling over words that are almost cracking with emotion. he spoke like he knew God would forgive him (as any parent who loves their child would, unconditionally), but that was why he was miserable, because he didn’t think he deserved that forgiveness. his prayer wasn’t planned in any manner of the word, nor premeditated – he just spoke, because that is what aramis does, he talks to God like He is in the room, like He is close by always. personal and warm and openly emotional, as aramis is with everyone he knows, everyone he loves. and note – he asked first for mercy on anne’s behalf, for God to protect her, and then he very much personalized his undeserving status in direct contrast to anne’s “deliver us” – aramis says “i am not worthy of your mercy”, direct and personalizing his faults the way he takes everything (his love, his loyalty, his courage) into the depths of his own heart. aramis says that his soul is ready, that he’s resigned himself to his fate, but there is still a spark of defiance in his eyes, fiery where anne’s immovable mask of grace was ice cold in the face of death.

they’re like opposite sides of the same coin, because even through all of this contrast, both prayers are incredibly sincere, coming from deep within the heart of the speaker and very evidently filled with true faith, and that is what unites them so beautifully. 

anyways, i have a lot of emotions about the season 2 finale,

Paper Cranes

When little Yuuri first found out about Viktor he wouldn’t stop talking about him.

Viktor this, Viktor that, everything the boy could talk about was ice skating and Viktor Nikiforov, his latest performances, his records. It’s absolutely adorable, however, it also gets a little tiring, especially if you had an inn to run.

So his mother told him the legend about the origami cranes and taught him how to fold them, it was just an idea to keep his occupied, even if only for a little while.

Yuuri made it his goal to finish folding a thousand paper cranes so he would be granted a wish which he would use to finally meet his idol Viktor Nikiforov.

It takes him years and he doesn’t fold them as regularly anymore as he used to as a kid, but sometimes he would look at the jar with the origami cranes and fold another dozen of them. He would go back to folding them after watching Viktor’s new performances, after a win and especially after a fail.

Viktor enters his life and the paper cranes are soon forgotten, resting in the jar somewhere in his closet. It’s when he packs his things to move to St. Petersburg when he finds it again.

He takes them with him to Russia and finishes folding the last few cranes.

It’s their first anniversary when he gifts Viktor the jar with the paper cranes because he couldn’t wish for anything more with Viktor by his side.

“For the man who fulfilled all my dreams and wishes.”
