Lyra lied out of NECESSITY. She lied to prevent her brother from being KILLED.
Maggie lied to PROTECT ALEX FROM EMOTIONAL STRESS. She lied to help her partner cope with her new identity and ensure that her coming out experience wasn’t miserable like hers was. It was a SELFLESS lie.
Mon-El lied for CONVENIENCE. He lied because he was fully aware that the DEO would throw him in jail if they knew his true identity. He lied to PROTECT HIMSELF FROM BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIS COWARDICE AND LONG HISTORY OF SELFISH CRUELTY.
Stop comparing their lies and pretending that they are the same. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME.
Cleaned it at last ! It’s ruff but this is a sketch page I drew as I was finishing the first book of Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials. I had to post it, because re-reading the books was SO great ! I knew I already loved it as a child and would understand it a lot better now, but I didn’t expected to love it that much !! I took the complete three volumes for my one month internship in this tiny-village-with-nothing, and ended reading all of it in almost one week ! (That’s an awful lot of pages.) I can only recommend the series, and would totally make a badass animated TV show out of it.
Ps - If you’ve read it, you cannot forget Him. Yeah and that’s tiny Lyra and big Iorek :3
I couldn’t wait to finish this drawing! For more than one reason.
To begin with, I’ve been feeling extremely unproductive, even though I finished a good amount of YCHs, and finishing this helped a little (I still can’t stop feeling like I could do more)
I also really wanted something new, because the look of a ton of YCHs next to each other is really boring, that’s why I tried to have some commissions I had forgotten to upload in between but isn’t really enough
And third and last reason, I’m planning on opening an online shop soon, around mid November if things go according to plan, the only problem, I hate anything I’ve done that is more than a month old (ok, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit), so I had no digital art for the shop, just a few traditional drawing I brought with me from Portugal, so now I’m trying to do quite a bit of art, so that the shop as a decent amount of prints to choose from when I open it
What do you think? I feel like I haven’t uploaded anything that has come out of my head (a.k.a. not commissions or YCHs) in ages! I’m sorry guys, this whole “moving to another country” has been getting in the way and a cold too (I’m fine now, don’t worry, just an annoying cough)
And I’m opening commissions soon and my Halloween YCH is still open
