So I’ve made the big mistake to listen to the greatest masterpiece of mankind* for the first time in a long time again.
Brain: hey aside from the fact that you know the song is based off a Swedish poem which you’ve never read, don’t you think that’s perfect inspiration for a sci-fi Zesty/Berseria AU?
Me: ???? The only basis for this is the entire corrupted earth and actually deity plot, and, like, why?
…Well, at least I didn’t give in and think about plot bunnies or re-designed any characters for a sci-fi setting (…yet…). However, a really lazy but theatrical low-effort doodle of angel Phi happened.
Brain: But hey, wouldn’t all the girls look amazing in plugsuits!????
SHUT IT, BRAIN
Brain: *whispers* Michael is the narrator of the song! 83 Also that 20-year-journey through space is the perfect interval for Sorey and Mikleo to grow up from tiny babies to saviours of the universe that Michael & co fucked up and stuff –
GODDAMN SHUT THE FUCK UP BRAIN WILL YOU
P.S.: I’ve actually recorded myself doodling this, so in case you’re curious how I’m doing my messy low-effort doodles, that might be interesting for you! I’ll try to edit it tonight, but as video editing takes me a while, I can’t tell when it will go online. Plus, my neighbours might want to sleep soon and won’t appreciate it if I record my commentary for the video. But we’ll see. I’ll let you know on tumblr once I’m done, of course!
*For everybody out there who doesn’t know this band, this album, and this
song in particular (nope, no loops included in the Youtube video, the
song runs for a solid half an hour): it is fucking perfection. Listen to
it at least 30 times to grasp a glimpse of its perfection. Just. Just.
