Queens usually make you buy merch to meet them and get a pic at their booth. Don’t worry though, you can usually buy something for five or ten bucks (posters and pins) or some queens will just accept $5 for a photo if you don’t want to buy anything.
This is the way these queens can make money back because they PAID out of pocket for a booth to see you guys! It supports their drag. Some queens accept cards but wifi is spotty so there’s no guarantee it’ll be up and working when you go, so cash is definitely preferred.
BRING A LARGE BAG.
An empty bag or bookbag to carry any items you may purchase is a must!
Some shops (like sugarpill) have bags but most don’t and most queens don’t so you don’t wanna be stuck carrying a bunch of random merch & risk losing it. Plus, it’s a great place to put your map / selfie light / sharpies / etc.
Not only will you be hungry… the line for food at ANY convention is usually awful and they overcharge way too much chicken tenders. Food trucks outside or bringing snacks in are your best bet. Plus, that means you don’t have to spend time waiting for food when you could be waiting for queens.
HAVE A PLAN.
Having a plan at dragcon is super important bc otherwise you might get overwhelmed or forget something you wanna do !! Lines get busy and if you see a super long one you can always go find someone with a 15 to 30 minute line and come back later – but that’s only easy if you learn the layout of the con. I would definitely suggest printing a physical copy of the map they have on their website and writing down booths / queens you wanna visit (once they release the booth list). queens lines can get busy if they’re super popular so expect to wait a bit for some – sasha and adore usually took me like an hour, and katya took like two to get to but with less popular queens, it’ll only be a five to ten person wait.
MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR EXPERIENCE.
My fave thing to do is bring something that every queen can sign – i did a dress that i had everyone draw on, one of my friends did a croc, i know others have just done autograph books or like the front of a photo album they’d fill with selfies later !! Signatures are free once you’re meeting a queen and it’s a super cute way to get another physical memory besides just a photo.
I also like getting friends to film my meet and greet, or having someone else in line take pics on their phone and send them to me. That way if the actual m&g pics aren’t too cute, i’ve got other memories !!
Selfie lights and sharpies aren’t necessities but being able to have queens sign things and making sure you look right in photos is definitely a plus.
Portable chargers. You’re gonna need one. Phone batteries go quick, and do you really wanna be standing at the jeffree star charging station when you could be running around the con?
DRAG IT UP
Don’t be afraid to go all out with your outfit !! Dragcon is a place of acceptance so if you wear something wild you’re more than likely gonna get a bunch of compliments from strangers. But make sure it’s not super uncomfortable, and definitely wear something you can sit down in for when lines become stagnant. In the words of my friends Jewels, “If your corset is too tight you’re gonna be Nina in Untucked planking across a couch to try & rest.”
KEEP YOUR FEET IN MIND
Heels are cute but not dying is cuter so either commit to suffering (not recommended, i’ve had to literally carry friends back to their hotel) or bring a change of shoes if you wear heels– or just walk around all day in comfy slippers or slides and then put heels on for pics like some of my friends do. I prefer just wearing platforms – cute, comfortable, kickass, and they prevent me from having to carry around a second pair of shoes.
and most importantly:
Don’t be afraid to talk to people !!! Lots of local queens and other drag artists come as fans and you might not recognize them, but asking them who they are and if you can get a pic always makes them smile and it might introduce you to some new incredible talents !! Trade instagram or twitter or tumblr handles. You’ll find yourself making a lot of really cool new friends and connections in the community.
A long time ago my mother taught me this old song about two lovers dancing and enjoying each others company, the main line is, “If you love me honey dear, wont you dance with me under the moonlight?” I was humming it today, and given that we’ve seen Pearl and Amethyst be so comfortable casually dancing with each other, i decided to draw a pic of them inspired by the song. ^_^

Bucky was sleeping peacefully beside you the next morning, after spending hours the night before trying to get him to fall asleep. His nerves were getting the best of him, and rightfully so. You’d spent most of the night coming up with a court summons for Peggy, so that you could finally find out whom Charlotte’s true father was. You pushed his hair off of his forehead and gave him a quick peck on the cheek. The love you had for him swelled in your chest and, in that moment, you vowed to find the truth for him, to give him inner peace. Even though this was his own personal struggle, it would bring peace to you and your relationship with him as well. Maybe, just maybe, it would also mend his and Steve’s lifelong friendship.
As you guys may have seen from other content creators in the fandom, there is an issue with a reposter on Instagram. Here’s my personal experience with them today when I asked them to take down one of my posts.
The user is mystical.rfa.v, and their (now nearly empty) account had posted one of my text posts without permission. Upon viewing their account, I saw a ton of art and edits from friends in this community that had also been posted without permission. Now I’m pretty chill with reposters as long as they ask permission beforehand, which this user didn’t.
Now my post? It was a silly text post that took me 15 seconds to write so it wasn’t that big of a deal to me. As the user stated, “it’s only a text post” - and they’re right!
What made me upset was seeing art and edits that my friends and others in this community spent hours on, with passion and skill and the motive for the fandom and themselves to enjoy such content, was hastily posted on this account with zero respect for the creators. No link back to the creator, no tags, nothing. Posting the phrase “credit to the artist” doesn’t cut it. Especially not when you didn’t even ask permission in the first place to post it.
So, Mystic Messenger community, please speak out if you see anyone reposting content. There’s a good chance they didn’t respect the creators when they posted it. Respect the content creators that give so much to this fandom. This is the kind of thing that makes artists and other creators stop posting.
I loved Grayson, I knew that for a fact. He was also a very good boyfriend to me,
loves me, compliments me, makes me laugh.
But there are some things about him that annoy me, for example he is
very clingy. All my past boyfriends
weren’t very affectionate with, but Grayson is a whole new level, don’t get me wrong
it’s cute and all; he just needs to know that I need my own space.
When I woke up, I couldn’t move, a hand was reaching across
my body, holding onto me tightly as if I was going to leave and never come
“Grayson,” I murmured attempting to move his
"Yes, baby,” his sexy morning voice whispered in my
“Can you move your arm?” I asked him, attempting
to sit up, but he just pulled me back down. “Grayson, I need to pee.”
“Just five more minutes’ baby,” he pressed his
lips behind my ear.
“I’ll pee on you,” I warned him, and he sighed
releasing me so that I could nip to the bathroom.
After peeing and brushing my teeth and leaned against the
doorway, admiring Grayson from his bed. He was shirtless, on his stomach,
obviously waiting for me to come back to his bed.
“Has anyone told you how sexy you look?” he
smirked, looking me up and down. Of
course, sexy, me? I was wearing one of Grayson’s old shirts that reached at the
beginning of my thigh, my panties, bare feet and my hair tossed into lazy top
knot. "Come back to bed Y/N..“
he groaned resting his hands on the side of his cheeks. I made my way to him, leaned slightly down,
kissed the tip of his nose and left the room, telling him I’ll be in the
kitchen. When I did reach he kitchen,
Ethan was already sat in there eating some cereal.
"Hey Y/N,” he smiled, his brown hair all over the
place, “How’s Gray?”
“Clingy, per usual,” I sighed, pouring myself some
cereal as well and coffee, just as I was about to grab a spoon from the draw I
felt a pair of arms wrap around my waist squeezing me tightly. “Gray, can
I eat my cereal okay,” I sighed.
“Okay but then we can cuddle, yeah?” he asked.
“No because I’m meeting up with Y/F/N at the mall
today.” Now usually it would only take me 45 minutes to get ready, but
since Grayson was being a little shit, it took me nearly 1hr 15. "Gray I’m late, I have to go now,“
I shooed him kissing him on his lips harshly.
Today had been a lovely day, apart from the fact I was half
an hour late, but I caught up with my friend, bought some clothes and makeup,
it was a wonderful day. When I got back
at Grayson’s place, I places all my things in his room and made my way to the
living room where Grayson was sat, scrolling through his phone, I sat on his
lap sideways and placed my hand on the back on his neck.
"Hey baby how’s your day been?” I asked kissing
his neck, no reaction he was still scrolling through his phone, eyes glued to
it, he grunted. "Gray what’s
up?“ I asked, placing my hand on
the side of his face making him face me.
"I don’t know, maybe I’m too clingy for you?” he
told me, his eyes staring into mine.
“Grayy…” I sighed, Ethan had said
something. "I love your clingyness,
the way that you feel the need to touch me,“ I placed his hands on my
waist. "Kiss me,” I kissed his cheek. “It’s just that sometimes
when I’m trying to get something done it gets annoying. But ignore Eth, just because he doesn’t get
some,” I grinned.
“God I love you,” Grayson smiled tackling me to
the ground, peppering kisses all over my face.
I’ve been into Yona of the Dawn for the past three years, but its only this year that I’ve decided to cosplay from one of my most favorite series!! I started out with Lili and Yona’s fancy cover art illustrations, and then I decided to crunch three more Yona costumes in a week for an upcoming con. I swear I’m usually better about pacing myself but I got pretty swamped with my friend’s wedding earlier in the month and I was left with a week to finish three Yona cosplays for Colossalcon this year.
Literally the only reason these got finished was thanks to the endless support of @automb@nana-cai and @tomyo!! They helped with ironing and pinning and the simple sewing so I could focus on draping my patterns, crafting, and keeping my wits together.
I know my cosplay compilation posts tend to get really chatty and long so I’ll put the rest under a read more!!
I’M DOING THIS SO LATE BUT I WAS V EXHAUSTED AFTER CHICON
i had a hell of a time actually getting there, spending 15 hours total on the road, as my hour-and-a-half plane ride got canceled 30 minutes before it was scheduled to leave. OOF
but i still got in on time for the bus tour, which is the only big thing i’ve really splurged for this year! and it was super fun! that’s when the comic above took place. Scared Dad could not encourage Scared Daughter
in other news:
a friend of mine got me a rob op without telling me, so i decided to use it to send a little message to her. I’M HAPPY BUT ALSO DON’T GET ME THINGS GIT URSELF SOMETHIN NICE FOR EVEN CONSIDERING IT–it’s also a good reaction image, in any case
SOUNDEN LAIM, the Louden Swain fake cover band, RETURNED! as a REAL COVER BAND! we released an album. and by “we” i mean strob (our norton) did an assload of work, and i did some voice/kazoo work. greatest 2 tracks ever
THE BAND GOT THE SWAINGELS
billy wanted to show it to his kids, and didn’t realize rob was hoarding the copy that was meant to be for the whole band
stephen wanted a copy to send to his nieces and nephews, he wants to be The Ultimate Cool Uncle in a comic book
mike specifically asked me how explicit the language gets in it, because he wants a new book to read to his kids. he also promptly yelled at rob from across the table, who was waiting to be reprimanded for his Dastardly Sins. i found out the book was being kept in the band’s studio. which i believe is in rob’s house. they haven’t recorded anything in a while. i watched them all argue over this
there was a surprise swaingel shoot that i was a part of! however, i’m super not into how i’ve looked recently, and i also messed a leg up pretty decent during the shoot but i’m very impressed with how cool everyone else looked
SPEAKING of cool people, literally everyone. i sold out of some things, brought a huge stock and got dangerously close to running out of that, i hugged a lot, and SO MANY GOOD BEANS STOPPED BY THE TABLE
i’ve always super super super loved chicago, and this was another really good year. i think i just super love the midwestern cons? i dunno but i’m already all sorts of pumped for minn!! THANKS FOR ANOTHER GREAT CON, PRAISE ‘N’ BLESS
This one took at least 5 days, and probably 20-ish hours altogether, but it is done. The background is gross, but I’ll deal with that another time. Or never. Never is good.
After watching Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, I knew I had to draw Yondu. He was The Best. It was only natural to then decide to draw Baby Groot and Rocket with him. I’d have drawn Peter, but that would have killed me, having to draw another human. At least Groot and Rocket took 5 hours total, while Yondu took at least 15. Peter would have added an extra 10 hours, bare minimum, and I’m not that much of a masochist.
For some reason, Peter managed to do everything Tony Stark told him not to do. That included staying away from daughter, but Peter was intrigued by the girl he couldn’t stay away. There was a beautiful light to her that made Peter feel a way that he had never felt with anyone else. The way her skin glowed in the sun, how her smile would light up the room, made Peter forget that Tony clearly stated his daughter was off limits, but Tony was asking for it when he practically assigned his daughter to babysit Peter in Germany, and then at his high school after that.
“Peter, there is some girl here who says she needs to speak to you” Aunt May called out, startling Peter who had no plans with anyone, especially not a girl. He sprung up from his bed to find a familiar face in the room. Not someone he knew personally, the daughter of a man he had admired since age six.
“Hi, I’m Y/N Stark” she stammered shyly. She stood with her arms behind her back, she was rocking back and forth on her heels and she was looked down. Peter would have thought she would have been much more confident, but she reeked of anxiety.
“P-peter Parker” He replied probably sounding just as nervous as her. His palms were sweating, heart, pounding, legs practically shaking.
“Could we talk in your room?” she asked quietly looking up, giving Peter a kind warm smile that made his heart melt.
“Uh- yeah sure” he stumbled, then led the way to his room. He opened the door for her, a quiet ‘thanks’ left her lifts as she walked towards the bed, slowly sitting down. “So, is there a reason you came,” he asked, “Not that I care or anything, you’re amazing”, he rambled, his cheeks going bright red along with hers. She smiled at him and then quickly looked down. They stood there in silence. “Wait, how do you even know who I am” he pressed breaking the awkward silence between.
“Um, well, my dad, he, um needs help with something, and he asked me to come recruit you because he’s recruiting someone else”, she stammered, still gazing down at her feet.
“Recruit me for what” he puzzled, an excitement coursing through his veins at the thought of Tony Stark wanting his help.
“I know you’re Spider-man” she blurted, standing up and hitting the part of the ceiling where Peter hid his suit quickly covering her mouth. He leaped to cover the suit trying to deny the accusation she just blurted out.
“What, I-I’m not Spider-”
“Cut the crap Peter, I had one of my dad’s robots follow you home last night, well I mean follow Spider-man, but anyways my dad needs your help in Germany, and he told me to come get you on board” she interrupted walking towards him.
“Germany”! He squeaked, burying his face in his hands. “I can’t just leave out of the blue, I have school and homework”
“Please Peter” she begged grabbing his hands. “I can do your homework, and we can tell your Aunt that you have something called a Stark internship that you applied for, my dad really needs your help.
“Okay, okay” Peter agreed, compelling her to smile. A smile that captivated Peter, which made him stare probably way longer than he should. She released his hands and walked towards his door.
“I know this is super short notice, but we have to leave in the next 15 minutes” she started walking out the door. After the girl had exited his room. He quickly grabbed his clothing and shoved it into a duffel bag, the adrenaline pumping through his veins. The thought of adventure making his head spin, thinking of the miles of possibilities working with Tony Stark could give him. The brightest light at the end of the tunnel was becoming an avenger. Something he had dreamed of since they saved New York. He had never been so overjoyed in his life, This had been the first time since his Uncle Ben died, that he had actually felt the warmth of true happiness. He cut out of his thoughts when he heard a knock on the door causing him to jump up, from the sudden noise.
“Peter how long does it take you to pack” She teased.
“Sorry I got distracted” he laughed, lifting his duffle bag, running to the door. He bursted out the door, but everything went in slow motion when he saw Y/N laughing at something May had said to her. She obviously had warmed up, and stopped being as anxious as she was when she first walked in. The sight of her laughing made Peter’s heart skip a beat. He couldn’t comprehend why, because he had just met her. She turned her head, and gave him a wide smile gesturing her hands to follow her out the door. She left the apartment to allow Peter to say goodbye to his Aunt. After giving his Aunt a heartfelt hug he left the room following Y/N to the elevator. Both Peter and Y/N went for the elevator button touching hands. Peter felt the places of skin she touched light on fire. Y/N quickly pulled her hand out of the way, the blood rising to her cheeks making them the color of the rose. Peters doing the exact same. The elevator door ringed, and the quickly made their way into the elevator.
“Sooo, why do you do what you do,” she asked breaking the silence. He tilted his head, and have her a confused look.
“I mean you’re 15 years old, why do you choose to be a hero, I mean it’s incredible what you’re doing at such a young age” she clarified, looking into his eyes with a curious look, clearly amazed at the fact this boy managed school, a social life, and saving the city as freshman in high school.
“When you can do the things that I can do, and you don’t, and the bad things happen they happen because of you” explained fiddling with his hands. His thoughts trailing to his Uncle Ben who had been killed by a robber. He had had a fight with his Uncle, and left the house in rage. His Uncle had went out searching for him, and had been ambushed, and even with the things Peter could do, he couldn’t save his Uncle. The man who was practically his father. He felt tears sting his eyes, but he quickly blinked them away.
“You lost someone” she whispered, he looked up at her, eyes glossy. She didn’t need him to answer because she knew. “I’ve lost someone too”. She breathed, reaching out to grab his hand. They sat there gazing into each others eyes until the elevator reached the ground floor. Happy was at the bottom level, and she quickly released Peter’s hand and dusted off her leggings.
“Alright, hope you don’t get air sick” she smiled clapping her hands together. They walked out of the apartment building to the car parked at the side of the road. Happy opened the door for both of them. This was the most expensive car Peter has ever stepped into, to be honest he was freaking out. He took a deep breath as he applied his seat belt.
“You good Parker,” she asked giving him a concerning look.
“Yeah this is just a lot to take in, and I don’t even know what I’m doing for this, and I’m just ner-”
“Hey, don’t be nervous, you’re going to be fine, you are the bravest 15-year-old I’ve ever know, and I’ve only known you for hour” she interrupted giving me a warm smile, then turned her head to look out the window. Peter looked forward at the opening that revealed a not so happy, Happy Hogan.
“So why do they call you Happy”? Peter asked curiously, but Happy just rolled up the window making Y/N giggle.
“His name may be Happy, but he’s rarely happy” she chuckled looking back out the window. For the rest of the car ride the two of them kept their eyes out the window until they arrived at the airport. The car pulled up on the runway revealing the private jet. Peter had never been on a plane, nor had he ever left New York. Peter and Y/N followed Happy to the jet, he gestured his hands, signalling the two to get on first. Peter stepped onto the jet, his heart racing, he looked to the cockpit to see no pilot.
“Woah no pilot” he asked, looking to Happy who rolled his eyes at the boy. Y/N sat down at a seat on the back of the jet, Happy took the front. Peter rushed to the back taking a seat next to Y/N who was laughing at how thrilled the boy was. His goofy smile made her feel butterflies.
“Have you ever been on a jet”, she giggled, applying her seat belt.
“No, I’ve never even been out of New York” he exclaimed, probably too loud, because Happy glared back causing Y/N to burst out laughing. “What”? He asked confused at what was so funny to her.
“You are just so excited, it’s kinda adorable” she laughed leaning back in her chair, as the jet began to take off. Peter gripped the armrests of the chair, his face going from goofy to nervous as anxiety washed over. Y/N must have noticed because she grabbed his hand.
“Don’t worry everything is going to be fine” she cooed, giving a small smile, and then closed her eyes, but she didn’t release his hand. “You should try to get some sleep, It’s going to be a long plane ride” she added. Peters brain was buzzing from the high he was getting from the adrenaline pumping through his veins with the all the new things he was doing and was going to do, but he closed his eyes knowing he needed to get some sleep. He was beginning to feel sleep overcome his body until he felt a weight on his shoulder. His eyes fluttered open to see the girl next to him cuddling into his shoulder. His breath hitched, as he looked down at the beautiful sleeping girl who was using him as a pillow. He smiled and closed his eyes sleep finally washing over his body.
Y/Ns eyes slowly fluttered open attempting to adjust to the lighting on the jet. She rubbed her eyes, and then stretched out her arms. She felt a kink in neck that she had most likely gotten from sleeping funny. She tilted her head to the side rubbing on the irritated area.
“Landing in 5 minutes” Happy yelled, waking up Peter who practically jumped out of his seat.
“Morning sunshine” she giggled, as Peter groaned slouching into his seat.
Once the plane had landed Y/N quickly got up running to the exit, and off the plane. She ran to her father who was waiting for her outside of the plane and engulfed him into a huge hug which Tony gladly accepted.
“Hey there squirt” he marveled hugging his beloved daughter. His daughter detached from the hug running over to Natasha to give Tony time to discuss the plan with Peter. Peter took the car with Happy and Tony, and Y/N went with Nat who drove her own car. Nat took Y/N around Germany since she had never been there. Tony did the same with Peter, but it was more of them discussing, and making sure Peter knew exactly what he was doing.
Later In the day, they met back at the hotel to get ready for the fight against Cap. Y/N led Peter to his room and told him to get his suit on. Once she went out the door, Peter quickly put on his suit and walked out the door.
“Peter, what the hell are you wearing” she squeaked, eyeing up his homemade suit.
“My suit” he questioned confused at why she was asking. She quickly gripped his hand, dragging him back into the room, going through a door he thought was a closet.
“Woah, I thought this was a closet, this is still my room,” he asked, but she ignored the question.
“The case Peter open it, and hurry up” she whined walking towards the door he thought to be a closet.
“A minor upgrade” He questioned, reading the note on top of the case. He opened the case to reveal a brand new suit. “Holy shit, this is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen” He squealed, releasing the suit from the case, he stripped from his old suit, putting on the new one as quickly as he possibly could. He was ready to impress Tony Stark, and he knew he could do it. He made his way out the door, to find Y/N pacing.
“Okay that’s so much better” she sighed in relief. “Now let’s go Happy is waiting in the car”.
The two kids rushed down the stairs and practically sprinted to through the lobby getting the odd stares from the people at the check in counter. Happy was waiting outside looking down at his watch.
“Finally, how does it take to put on a suit” he sassed crossing his arms to his chest
“Okay, it’s not my fault he didn’t know my dad made him a new suit” she retorted, glaring at Happy, because of his tone.
“Alright kid let’s go” Happy yelled breaking the silence. Happy walked to the driver’s seat and got in. Peter began to walk to the door, but Y/N stopped him.
“Please be careful Peter, these people have much more training in combat, and some of them will be stronger, just don’t get yourself involved in anything you can’t win, please” she begged looking up at him with glossy eyes.
“Hey, look I’m going to be okay” he assured grabbing her hand. He gave her a warm smile, unlike the goofy one she had received since she met him. He began to walk away, and held her hand until it slipped away when he got to far away from her. Y/N felt a tear fall from her eye, which she quickly wiped away. She had only known this boy for 24 hours, why did she feel so attached. She watched as the car down away, and she stood there frozen to the ground. Her body tense. She attempted to calm herself down, but her dad, and a boy she had became very fond of could get severely injured, or worse. She slowly made her way towards her room, taking deep breaths as the elevator, began to move. Once the elevator reached it stop, she couldn’t hold in her tears, or her feelings. Most of the time Y/N was good at keeping her feelings to herself, but the stress of this was too much. She sprinted to her room, and attempted to slide the key in, but her hands were to shaky. After multiple attempts she gave up, sliding her back down the door, burying her face in her hands as she sobbed. She trusted her father and Peter, but anything could go wrong. She felt her chest tighten at the thought of any horrible outcome. Anyone from either side dying would be detrimental to her. She was so close with every member of the team, and truthfully they were her only friends. After her small panic attack, she was able to catch her breath, and get into her room. She flopped down on the bed looking at the ceiling. Exhaustion hitting her like a train. As much as she wanted to stay up, her body fought it, as she fell into a deep sleep.
Her eyes fluttered open to find her dad sitting, and drinking coffee. She blinked a couple of times to make sure she wasn’t imagining it. She scrambled out off her bed, darting to her father, and hugging him as tightly as possible.
“Is everyone okay” she whispered. Feeling tears sting her eyes, as she expected the worst.
“Everyone is fine, but Cap got away,” he said kissing her forehead. She blinked away her tears and ran towards the door.
“I’m going to go see Peter” she shouted as she ran out the door. She ran as fast as her legs could carry her, and practically knocked the door down with how loud she knocked. The door opened to reveal, a just woken up Peter Parker rubbing his eyes. She pounced on him engulfing him in a huge hug. She cuddled her head into his chest feeling the warmth of his body. Peter’s eyes went wide open, trying to process what was happening, but once he figured it out, he wrapped his arms around her waist snuggling into the hug. Once they pulled apart Y/N noticed the bruise forming around his eye. She lightly touched it causing him to wince at the contact.
“Peter are you okay” she exclaimed clearly worried.
“Yes Y/N, I’m absolutely fine” he assured, pulling her into his room.
“But you have a blac-”
“I’m okay” he interrupted in a soft voice. He put his hands on her shoulders making her feel better. “Do you want to do something fun?” he asked out of the blue.
“Well, that depends” she smirked.
“How about you just take a chance, and say yes” he suggested.
“You’re lucky because, I’m in the mood for an adventure Parker” she giggled walking towards him, as he was opening up the window.
“So that’s a yes” he questioned, and she nodded his head. “Then hold on,” he said grasping her waist and pulling her out the window. She squealed wrapped her arms around Peter as he climbed up the side of the building until they reached the top. He let go of her setting her safely on the roof. He walked over the edge of the building and sat down at the on the ledge putting his legs over.
“Are you coming?” he asked gesturing for her to come over.
“I’m kind of scared of heights” she laughed nervously.
“And I won’t drop you” he replied
“Okay fine, but no games Parker” she murmured, walking towards the ledge her legs shaking. He helped her over, and she wrapped her arms around him scared to fall. He gripped her waist pulling her closer to him.
“Just breathe, Y/N” he whispered. She took a deep breath and started to admire the view from the top of the building. She felt her body relax in his arms, and the anxiety she had been feeling the past 2 days had started to fade away, as she was held in the arms of a boy she knew for sure was going to steal her heart.
Summary: Damian is turned into a kitten and found by reader
Word count: 1116
A/n: Hope you enjoy this. I’m thinking of making this a series
but I’m not so sure yet.
Frustrated, that was the word.
Damian Wayne was certainly feeling frustrated. What started
as a normal night of patrolling soon turned into a nightmare for the youngest
son of Batman. Damian didn’t know how it happened or why it happened, well…..
maybe he did know how it happened but admitting it was a little bit
embarrassing for him.
He had just stop a mugging in crime alley, the usual thing
of everyday: stop the mugging, beat the criminal and call the police, nothing
interesting or at least it was until the man he just saved from said mugging
turned against him. He took a gun out of his jacket and aimed it at Damian.
Now, this was a shock for the boy wonder but what happened next was certainly stranger.
The mugger, that just a second ago was on the floor took advantage of Damian’s
shock and did something unexpected. The low life criminal threw something at
Damian, some king of powder but more heavy than it, the weird object smelled
funny and felt hot on Damian’s skin. Damian was certainly not proud of being caught
off guard, he was already beating himself for not acting fast enough and on top
of that for not realizing that the mugging itself was just a charade.
All this happened in less than a minute.
The two men who seemed to be working together ran away after
throwing him the stuff, if Damian wasn’t feeling so tired he would have chased
them. But that was not the case, Damian was tired and angry. Two common low
life criminals had manage to evade HIM, a trained assassin of the league of
assassins and Batman, that was outrageous. He would have continued the rambling
inside his head if it wasn’t for the tiredness that took over his body, he fell
into the floor head first and butt up.
“Father will find me “he thought
And just like that he fell unconscious.
It only took him 15 minutes to regain consciousness, but those
15 minutes felt like hours for the youngest Wayne
Damian stirred a little and with his eyes still closed he
thought how his father would react to the past event. “He will be disappointed,
I am disappointed” and more so because I went patrolling on a school night. “He
will be furious”
He did not want to open his eyes, so he decided to take a
few more minutes of sleep before confronting his father, and with that Damian
decided to snuggle closer to the blanket he was sure Pennyworth must have put
on him. “Father did find me” Damian thought
“But, wait a minute”. Damian started thinking
The manor does not smell like piss and his bed does not feel
like a hard rock. Alarmed, Damian opened his eyes, and he was welcomed to a
terrible sight, he was not back home but on the floor of an alley. It was still
dark so not much time must have passed he thought.
But something was wrong. Something was terribly wrong.
He was not covered in a blanket but on a very familiar red
suit, His suit.
Now. That was bad
He was suddenly too small for his suit. With a lot of effort,
he managed to get out of his suit.
Just to realize that not only was he small, but he was also
covered in fur and standing on four.
He had a faint idea of what was happening, but admitting it
Damian decided that the best action he could make was call
He was ready to do so but stopped when he heard something.
“Mom can we drink some cocoa when we get home”
“I don’t think so Y/N it’s already late and you have school
The voices where getting closer
What would they think of a cat sitting on top of a robin suit?
They could steal the suit and find out Batman identity, he
may be a cat now but Damian was no fool.
He took the suit and boots with his mouth and faster than he
could, hid it behind a dumpster. It was hard and maybe he ended up with a sore
mouth but it was necessary.
“Look mom, a kitten”
Damian was startled he may have not been as fast as he
thought. This plebeian picked him up from where he was hiding, hurting his
belly in the process.
“Y/N, be careful with the animal, you don’t know what kind
of diseases it might carry”
“But mommy it’s just a kitten, it won’t hurt me”
Getting tired of having his belly squeezed as a lemon, he
decided the best thing to do was to escape the barbarian that was holding him.
“Ouch!! He scratched me ”
Damian took advantage of this and went back to his hiding
place, he could here the child and mother arguing from his place.
“Let’s go back home, Y/N, I’ll clean your scratch and then
if you’re good I’ll give you some cocoa” he heard
“But mommy, it’s cold, something might happen to the kitty,
he could die”
“What are you trying to say Y/N?”
“Can we take him home, please”
“MEOW!!” What!!. He would not go home with this foolish
child he would rather fight the joker than that.
“No, it’s a stray cat” at least someone has a common sense
But the child was right, it was indeed a cold night, winters
in Gotham were always cold. Oh how he longed to be back home drinking tea while
listening to Grayson’s incessant talking.
“But, mom it’s just a kitten”
“No, buts Y/N, that cat already scratch you, it’s late we
won’t get a cab in here. Common Y/N ”
The women took her bag and walked a few steps ahead of the
child, Damian was already getting comfortable in his corner, when he feel the
same pain in his belly as before, the child, no, the girl was picking him up
again and brought him close to her mouth.
“Don’t worry Mr. KitKat, I’ll keep you safe from winter” Y/N
muttered to him.
And with that she put him inside her black coat, Damian
resisted the urge to scratch the girl again, but the inside of the coat was
warm and he was tired.
“Y/N” he heard the women shout
“I’m coming mom”
What an impulsive girl Damian thought. Hiding a cat inside
her coat when the mother didn’t want the cat. Well that’s not my problem I’ll
just focus on getting home, and with that Damian fall asleep without knowing
that it would take his family weeks before actually finding him.
Just dropping this here to show you something interesting.
I have been doing some animation experiments for the trailer that is going to promote my friend Ezelle’s amazing book “The Valiard Mansion”.
As you can see, it’s not a finished thing and there are quite a lot of frames missing towards the end yet, but it was in the midst of working that I suddenly really wanted to see how the thing would look like with twice as many frames.
Going full 24 fps is something I never even tried before, I only occasionally mix a couple of frames at 24 fps speed into it when there’s a really quick movement within the animation. Lazy me always told herself that the eye wouldn’t perceive the difference anyway, now I’m pretty shocked about how much smoother the 24 fps animation looks.
It’s actually not THAT MUCH of an elaborate thing to do in a pencil test. Once you have your normal 12 fps test, you can just fill in additional frames between the ones you already have, it doesn’t require a lot of thinking, only a bit precision, and I think it only took me about 45 minutes to an hour 15 or something while doing the actual 12 fps animation has been taking me many hours to make.
However, I think in order to make it look good, you would have to clean up very carefully at that quick timing or the thing will flicker. Also, colouring the double amount of frames(that are almost identical to each other most of the time) would completely wreck my nerves. I don’t think I will go that far here, but I just wanted to share the two versions with you because I think it’s interesting :)
Sorry if you get this twice. My thing sorta glitched so sorry I guess? Also sorry that this isn’t particularly a uhhh…happy…happy birthday gift…..Sorry. Uhh I hope you like this? Took me about 6+ hours, still not proud of the head…uhh..yeah…so enjoy this uhhhh..unhappy..birthday….gift…..yeah
It’s okay! I understand, thanks for clarifying though! :D And wow I’ve never seen an Echo version of Ink, this is so interesting thank you so much!! And honestly the head is the hardest part for me, it’s where I have the highest chances of giving up a drawing. I should just practise, if only I had the time q_q

So I used to work at Mendy’s a while ago, & I just have to say the conditions management seems to think are okay to operate in are ridiculous. Once, a water line broke in the area where we were, & literally almost all of the fast food/restaurants in the area closed because, you know, we have no water at all & when we finally did have water the city was on a boil order & the water was considered unsafe. You would think that would lead the owners of our Mendy’s to close the store but nope. Us & Baco Tell were the only places in the city still open, so you can bet we were completely swamped that day. With no fucking water. We literally had to pour drinks out of two liters, which our managers kept having to run to MalWart to buy. & of course there were tons of customers who were dicks & somehow didn’t have a clue what was going on with the water. I had so many people not understand why they couldn’t use the bathrooms, why our soda fountain wasn’t working, why they couldn’t get whatever fast food they REALLY wanted because everywhere else was closed as if it was our fault, blah blah blah. Oh & don’t even get me started on how we had to wash dishes… we were there for like an extra hour after close just trying to get things cleaned up using only those big water cooler jugs of water. It was awful.
Another time, we got hit with a huge snowstorm. My university cancelled classes for the first time in 10 years, most stores in the area shut down early so employees could get home when the snow plows were running..but of course Mendy’s stayed open until 12 like usual. I live about 15 minutes away from where I worked. That night it took me almost 2 hours to get home safely. Seriously, fuck owners/management that value a dollar over the safety & well-being of their employees.
Stickers are all cut and ready to go! It only took me 17 hours to hand cut them! During finals week!
*Significantly* more designs from last year though as you can see. Really happy with how a lot of them turned out, especially trixie for some reason, her colors are just really full. I’ve printed them a bit strategically too so some of the Sweetie designs in particular only have 5 available while a lot of the others have 15-10. So if you want a specific sweetie you may want to grab em quick, no idea how fast they’ll go at EFNW. They’re around 4-5 inches in length each (quarter in the bottom right for size reference), and they sell for 4 dollars each, but I do a 3 for 10 thing as well for anyone interested.
EFNW is just around the corner and it looks like I’m just about set to go. Hope to see you guys there! My art posts are going to pick up significantly once finals and EFNW are done so sit tight, summer is on the way and I have big plans for the blog.
