jfc i could not color this


so these are some trickster designs i came up with a million years ago (back when i did that tricksterkat??? wtf that was an eternity ago). and i found these somewhere in the depths of my save files and thought “hey, alex, maybe you could practice coloring, you fool, you colorly inept fool”.
and so i did, and this is the result. the line art is from like six months ago take it with a grain of salt.
also if you’re interested this is the original color scheme? it mostly stayed the same but i like to think this shit is more harmonious now.


“We went on the roof in order to resolve the live concert idea, because it was much simpler than going anywhere else; also nobody had ever done that, so it would be interesting to see what happened when we started playing up there. It was a nice little social study.
We set up a camera in the Apple reception area, behind a window so nobody could see it, and we filmed people coming in. The police and everybody came in saying, ‘You can’t do that! You’ve got to stop.‘”

-George Harrison.

Yashisato Soulmate AU

God the plot bunnies won’t stop, probably because a lot of the tropes don’t yet have a fic in our fandom.

But I was thinking yesterday - Yashisato Soulmate AU. I mean, the pairing’s already perfect for that - soulmates “filling each other’s holes” anyone?

The “first words on your skin” could be interesting, I suppose, or the “injuries you receive” one, or even the “you see color when you meet your soulmate” one… But the soulmate AU I want to see is the “red string of fate” AU.

Like, imagine that your string appears on your finger when you’re, like, eighteen or sixteen or something, and only you and your soulmate can see your string. Pizza boy/mangaka Satoru hasn’t found his soulmate yet.

And then he experiences the big Revival, steps into his fifth grade classroom… and there it is. The other side of his soulmate thread, wrapped around the finger of his Sensei. Because although his body is young, his soul is not.

And okay, I’m not completely sure how this would fall out. Like, Yashiro would be HELLA confused, because Satoru is eleven?? and his thread didn’t exist yesterday?? but I think through logical deduction and observation, he’d realize, unlike in canon, that Satoru’s too old for his body, and that fascinates him.

I’m not sure if Yashiro would keep going with the abductions or not. On one hand, that would be a great plot - Satoru chasing the killer with the help of his soulmate (idk how much Satoru would tell him about Satoru’s unique situation, probably not a lot), but his soulmate turns out to be the killer - the one person Satoru wouldn’t suspect. UGH. But I also like the idea of Yashiro just, like, dropping the abductions in order to figure out his intriguing soulmate and of course, he’d do that by messing with him and manipulating him - maybe he’d use Hinazuki’s situation as a way to tie Satoru more closely to him.
