(slams hands on table) hoshidan royal fami l y + k i d s

Oh my god I thought I was never going to get this done this took forever. Based off this sketch, but unfortunately I had to cut mikoto and sumeragi because… well, you can see this picture is pretty crowded as is. and they all wear similar colors so it’s really hard to make them distinct from each other. But omg I’m so glad I got this done, I had to do at least one pic of this because I love the family dynamic. Most importantly, it has shiro and kiragi who are always missing from the birthright royal fam fanart and I love them. I need more art of them as a big family because it warms my soul.

other thoughts I had while drawing this:

-spotify randomly opened and started playing different strokes at some pint and it was just like a sign from god to keep going

-”what the fuck is their damage with bows this whole family wears more ribbons than a goddam joann fabric store”

-kiragi and shiro = young takumi and ryoma????

-Hinoka is Um Jammer Lammy

LEGENDS || The Sword of Damocles

According to the story, pandering to his King, Damocles –an obsequious courtier in the court– exclaimed that, as a great man of power and authority surrounded by magnificence, Dionysius was truly extremely fortunate. The King turned to Damocles and said, “If you think I’m so lucky, how would you like to try out my life?” Damocles readily agreed, and so Dionysius ordered everything to be prepared for Damocles to experience what life as Dionysius was like. Damocles was enjoying himself immensely… until he noticed a sharp sword hovering over his head, that was suspended from the ceiling by a horse hair. This, the King explained to Damocles, was what life as ruler was really like.  Damocles, alarmed, quickly revised his idea of what made up a good life, and asked to be excused, realizing that with great fortune and power come also great peril and anxiety. He then eagerly returned to his poorer, but safer life. Dionysius had successfully conveyed a sense of the constant fear in which the great man lives. 
The great, late-Republican Roman orator and statesman Cicero describes the Sword of Damocles in his Tusculan Disputations 5.61.
The sword of Damocles is frequently used in allusion to this tale, epitomizing the imminent and ever-present peril faced by those in positions of power. More generally, it is used to denote the sense of foreboding engendered by a precarious situation, especially one in which the onset of tragedy is restrained only by a delicate trigger or chance.

Why did they assign me to you in the first place, Mulder? To debunk your work, to rein you in, to shut you down. But you saved me! As difficult and as frustrating as it’s been sometimes, your goddamned strict rationalism and science have saved me a thousand times over.

So I know the highlight of that episode was Doc but

This was my favourite scene BY FAR.
