I’ve seen people do month-by-month yearly compilations for drawing, and I know it’s way harder to see progress with writing, but I thought I’d try anyway? So here’s a big ol’ thing with a paragraph or so of my creative writing from every month of the year.
Except August, September, and October. Apparently I didn’t write anything for a good quarter of this year, and I really have no idea why not.
david is now in charge of camp campbell. mr campbell is in prison, and he and gwen are, though pretty used to running it without him, a little at a loss of what to do. they have little to no funding or money to spend now, and they still have a month and a half left of summer.
seeing that a decent portion of the campers he got this year come from not super fantastic home lives, david takes matters into his own hands. he completes the summer. he and gwen barely make it through the remainder of the summer in once piece, even though after the pizza night max has become much more manageable with his schemes and antics.
david then talks to the parents of kids he thinks need it most. harrison’s family agrees. theyre really only thinking of their own asses. nikki’s mom agrees, at least until she can get her life together again. and max? max’s family never shows up. they never come to get their son. david? david is horrified. this is his breaking point. he is horrified and infuriated and saddened by the whole thing and decides to take it to cps. david adopts max, and continues with his plan.
camp campbell is no longer just a summer camp. it’s now a foster home. children of all ages and backgrounds come during the summer and stay through the year. david takes care of them all, he and gwen giving them love and affection and yes, pizza.
because every one of them deserves to be happy.
(if you ever wanna draw this, use the tag #yps camp camp foster au! id looooove to see your art for this aljkjfdhg)
You needed somebody to play the Prince that could be King. And it had to be a hero with humor, a man of the people and very handsome. Richard checks all boxes, and he also happens to be a spectacularly good actor.
Oh man. Dis mofo slick. I mean you can’t tell me you don’t get even a little bit giddy seeing him be a professional. Don’t fall for the trap of thinking he’s just an empty suit. A lot of people think he’s all work, no play, super boring, but those people are so wrong. Ignis is great and gets better over the time you get to know him. He is loyal, diligent and suave with very little of the vanity and ego of the other three guys. He’s witty, knows the best time to drop jokes and puns and and clever little jokes and observations. Ignis Scientia is just the absolute worst because he’s perfect; good looks, good heart, great smarts. You’ve got no chance if he decides he wants to woo you.
Like with Prompto and Gladio, you have to understand what Ignis has been groomed for and that’s supporting Noctis, the royal family and Insomnia pretty much first and foremost. His role is critical when it comes to any kind of success. Understand that during moments of crisis or urgency, your boyfriend might have to postpone his time with you. Don’t ever assume he does this easily. It breaks his heart every damn time. He knows how difficult it is to be with him, someone who has so much responsibility. Every time he disappoints you, Ignis is scared you’re tempted to leave him. Prove Specs wrong and support him as much as you can.
Ignis never leaves you wanting for anything. If he can look after three man-children, one of which is a picky pretty-boy prince, he can bloody well look after you. He treats you more like royalty than he does with Noct, to be honest. Ignis is also very observant when it comes to your well-being and he takes care of you without really saying anything. If you’re looking cold, suddenly his jacket is around your shoulders. If he’s seeing signs of you getting hungry, there’s suddenly a delicious meal within your grasp (sometimes it’s your favourite depending on how cranky you’re getting). If you’re working hard and looking exhausted, but you need to push on for deadlines, you’ll have coffee, you’ll have snacks, you’ll have whatever you need to keep going. Ignis just knows how to take care of you without being overbearing or intrusive. He saves that shit for the three man-children.
Affection with Ignis is just… beautiful. It’s got a classic romantic flavour, it’s sweet, it’s mature. It’s a lot of little things he does to show that he cares a lot about you. Lots of hand holding and gentle kisses against your palm. Ignis is 100% the kind of guy to hold your hand while driving, by the way. The guys give him shit for it, but they might be kind of jealous. You’ll get random gifts sometimes, out of the blue without any words just a sweet, knowing smile. Sometimes you’ll have flowers sent to your work or something. Ignis does all of these things because he love that shy grin you get when he does this stuff. Your blush is the cutest. Smooch Iggy as much as you can to reward him <3
Okay, so you’re right in thinking that Ignis isn’t petty, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t got the ability to be. Though when he’s petty, it is fucking savage. For example, one day the guys are just absolutely unbearable. Sometimes it gets like that over stupid shit. Usually you can step in and calm everyone down, but they’re beyond help. Ignis, being clever and straightforward, decides he’s had enough. He very loudly declares, to your embarrassment, “We fucked in the Regalia once.” There is a deafening silence as Ignis takes you by the hand and leaves without any explanation.
Ignis is a genius because the boys immediately stop bickering. Was he joking? Wait, when did you fuck in the Regalia? When was there time? The boys are hardly without either Ignis or the car, so…? WHEN? HOW? Were they in the car after?! Oh god, was it front seat or backseat? They freak out over Ignis’ declaration. The perfect part of this whole ordeal is that eventually one of the boys thinks ‘maybe Ignis is joking, he probably is, we should ask’, but neither you or Ignis confirm or deny if he was telling the truth.
The boys are kept in perpetual suspense. At this point, they don’t even care if you guys had fucked in the car, they just need to know if it happened or not, but they will receive no respite. Ignis keeps his lips sealed, as do you. The boys are kept in a state of limbo regarding answers and they are reminded of that dreaded, possibly true, declaration every time they see the Regalia.
Noctis is the Lucian King, but Ignis Scientia is the fucking King of petty when the situation calls for it.
