We need to talk about this. We really do.
Can I say I was shocked and teary eyed at this scene, but also kind of mad.
That sentence came out of his mouth like he had said it a thousand times. In a way he probably had. I know I might be reaching but I am going to say that he accepted Nomi after Teagan did. The only one not moving was her mom. And he decided to stand with the woman he loves… and he turn his back on someone who he didn’t fully understand.
Fear does some stupid things to people. And This begins to make up for it.
So… Thank you Mr. Marks for seeing your daughter how we see her.
I know it hasn’t really been a minute since I’ve been posting like left and right this last month or so, but I’ve been getting a lot of notes and emails and all sorts of stuff so I figured I’d just throw down some quick updoots to get you all in the know (or at least my version of the know, we’ll figure that part out later)
FIRST OFF I want to thank every one of you out there who’s supported my art either through your likes, reblogs/retweets, and even Patreon support (which has gotten up to $200 a month wow!!) It’s only been like what, a year since I started posting art to the furry fandom and it’s been just a heck of a ride the entire way. Like I nearly went from 400 followers about a year ago to literally almost 7 THOUSAND FOLLOWERS???
If you had asked me if any of this was possible on my end about a year ago, frankly I’d tell you it was just a far off fantasy. BUT JOKES ON PAST ME BECAUSE YOU GUYS ARE MAKING ME CRY IRL EVERY DAY. SO JUST THANKS. WOW. I LOVE ALL OF YOU!!
(and if you’ve been one of those people behind the scenes pushing my butt in the right direction, I love you just that much more. you all know who you are uwu)
SO AS YOU’VE PROBABLY NOTICED I’ve been doing a butt ton of art (specifically commissions!) very recently, and it’s been a heck of a refreshing change for me to just do some quick lil animated bits and layout stuff ! But the real world is scary and wants money so i’m also on the hunt for a more permanent job situation while I manage some of these upcoming projects and commissions. I will say definitively I’ll be closing off commissions for the upcoming month (but I’ll get to that in a sec)
The big one being my Chuck and Deen reboot, which is now officially going under the name HOW I LEFT TOWN (AND GOT LOST FOREVER)
The comics going under a serious overhaul in terms of tone, style and writing, but you’ll be seeing a return of all your fav characters in something I’m hoping will reflect a lot of the themes my artworks been giving off this last year. It’ll be dramatic, it’ll be super gay, and it’ll have lots of spooks! So here’s hoping I can deliver something special when I find the time to get posting.
The elephant in the room for me atm is my unfinished senior film that’s been sitting in limbo since I graduated from SVA. It’s literally just waiting to be finished (after some technical issues regarding time and coordination) and tbh it’s just a load of demo reel/portfolio material waiting to be unbenched, so I’ve decided to make that my first priority before my next big contract this coming month. I’m hoping I’ll have a good film to show for and finally a finished project under my belt by the beginning of July, so cheer along and look forward to some dumb teen comedy about vampires and terrible pizza!!
From there, I can definitely see myself dedicating my free time to making progress on my new comic and just tons more of the same kind of stuff you’ve been seeing me post recently. Here’s hoping I can pay back all the kindness and love I’ve received this last year uwu
TL;DR Need to finish my student film before I get rolling on the new Chuck and Deen to get them sick career opportunities. Commissions are kind of closed. I love all of you. Deuces.
So–I know I say this a lot but you know…it bears repeating sometimes. I just really, truly, deeply, profoundly appreciate all of you! I stepped out into this fandom with trepidation because I’d never written about real people before and I was really worried about the reception. I’ve received nothing but warmth and love from that day until now!
My four month anniversary since posting my very first Jump related fic (it was the first chapter of Exam Room 5!) will be on the 14th but I can’t even wait those few days to say this to you all.
If you don’t want to read the longer love note then just know I LOVE YOU and I am so thankful for you and appreciate each and every one of you with all my heart!
This caption screams a literal THOUSAND feels …. my Caryl lovelies

1st time I slowed through this scene—-I literally paused here. It was W A Y obvious…. And I said “Holy cow”
DARYL is solely focused on CAROL <3 “Damn, she’s beautiful. F* yea….she is! She’s got some balls on her. Damn more than any woman I’ve ever known. I wouldn’t mind gettin’ to know her better… I’ve never known such real beauty in a woman

Daryl is literally staring…transfixed….at lovely Carol Peletier.
The same woman whom he held in his arms, in comfort….after discovering Sophia’s unfortunate fate, at the barn, days earlier….
The same woman, whom he’d brutishly torn into, emotionally….after Carol refused to let him slip away from the group “SOPHIA WASN’T MINE!!!!!”
This same woman, who’d boldly confronted him a day ago, calling him out on his sorry-ass attitude - for brutishly beating poor Randall for information.
