magic guard

INKTOBER DAY 28
YuffiePie

Pinkie Pie as Yuffie Kisaragi! She took so long to detail and ink, but I’m generally happy with this one. Pinkie and Yuffie are both pretty funny and silly. And Yuffie plays with the 4th wall when she steals your materia in the first disc of FF7, so I found it fitting that Pinkie would play as her, plus their names are similar already!

Cursed Child rant

Alright, Witches, Wizards, Muggles, and magical creatures big and small, hold onto your broomsticks because I’m about to tell you why I do not like Harry Potter and the Cursed Child nor accept it as canon. 

Spoilers ahead. Obviously. but c’mon who hasn’t read it or been spoiled by now Also, it got super long. 


Let’s start off by saying: it’s been months since I read it. If I get some things off a little, go ahead and tell me; I’ll edit the rant and correct it. If you just don’t agree with me… that’s great for you. Okay? We good? That’s all the disclaimer you’re getting. Moving on! 


Where do I begin? Um… Let’s recap shall we? 

It starts with Albus Severus Potter (who’s name I still cannot get over) meeting and becoming friends with Scorpius Malfoy. 

Okay. Great. We’ve all wanted that for years. No problem. 

We’ve also played with the idea of Albus in Slytherin for years. I have no problem with that either. 

What I do have problems with is the way Albus is treated after he is put in Slytherin. He’s the outcast of his family. He’s the “disappointing son”. After Harry’s canon “the bravest man I knew was Slytherin” speech (don’t get me started on Snape), I expected a bit better treatment of Slytherins. But Albus is Slytherin and looked at sideways by the entire cast, except Scorpius. This could easily become a rant about Slytherin’s and stereotypes and treatment, but I give enough of those already. 

My issues are mostly with Albus’ personality. Now, I didn’t write the character. He’s not mine. I don’t have the authority to tell anyone how he should be. All I can do is have headcanons. But “canon” Albus doesn’t exactly display a lot of Slytherin traits. Sure he sneaks around, but so does Harry, Ron, and Hermione and they’re all Gryffindor. If my memory serves me correctly, Albus goes to Slytherin because he basically thinks, “Well, the Gryffindors I know suck, let’s try Slytherin.”it’s been a while since I read it okay  

Albus is jaded by the time the plot picks up. He doesn’t like flying, isn’t that good at it or Quidditch (which honestly feels like they’re just trying to make him as unlike Harry as possible which I could handle if it wasn’t so badly written), and is basically convinced his life is horrible. (I’ll get into why a little later.) This kid shows no Slytherin traits that I remember. He hardly shows any traits really. I think it was the play format, but Albus becomes a stereotypical teenager who has daddy issues and doesn’t like his life. 

Scorpius I don’t really have a big problem with, besides it going against my personal headcanons. He at least shows a bit more Slytherin traits than jaded Albus. I feel like they were trying to break Slytherin stereotypes with him- which is great and all, but it almost makes me feel like that’s all Scorpius’ personality was. As if he was made to simply disrupt our preconceived ideas of what Slytherin is. I don’t like it. Stereotypes are something I can’t stand, but come on, people, don’t strip my house of what we actually are. 

Okay, moving on from Slytherin. 

Let’s take a step back from the new characters and visit the one’s we already know, we already love. Oh wait, they’ve been ripped to shreds.

Imagine Loki in an Asgard prison cell, either the one in the movie that allows some use of magic or the one you imagine. He’s minding his own business (none) and thinking his grand thoughts (bored) when he is (finally) delivered his dinner. In my headcanon, Loki doesn’t have to eat to live ever, but he is much healthier & happier when he does - and the guards are permitted to punish him accordingly by withholding real food if they want. 

Today his meal consists of simple peasant fare - beneath a prince, but certainly better than Thanos ever provided him. Also a small hot cup of whatever passes for coffee in his realm, including a small stirring stick. Nothing more than a twig really. 

Funny little twig. It seems to tremble in the air, and putting it in the “coffee” and slowly swirling it around in the warmth settles it down a bit. He’s getting a definite vibe of something (magic?) but it puzzles him (not magic). As the drink cools, the stick (wand?) resumes its slight quake (shivering). 

He holds it in his hand, examining it, pondering the vague feeling that inches through him (cold worry curiosity). It still looks like a twig, maybe with a small knot (bud) at the end. He tucks it gently into the inside fold of his shirt, and senses a swift change from the wood (warmth gratitude curiosity). Loki smiles. He wonders where this gift originated, and who might have seen it so carefully placed with his meagre meal.

Ahhh, a mystery.

I made an entire at4w au where everything is the same except the magic rules are closer to how actual witchcraft works just so I could make this joke. I drew this at 1 am and couldn’t remember what pollo looked like aside from “box”

Customs Nightmare

So I’m a pretty experienced DM, running a homebrew setting in Pathfinder for some pretty experienced players. The city they’re entering has strict restrictions on magic due to general magical paranoia, and everyone who goes through customs is screened for magic.
The gate guards encounter two of the players, a ditzy young Paladin and a tengu Magus.
Guard(NPC): So, carrying any magic on you, miss?
Paladin: … You can *do* that?!
Guard: Y…yes, you can… ugh. (Takes out scroll of Detect Magic, examines magic armor) That armor liable to get anyone in trouble?
Paladin: Well, it’s supposed to do the opposite, I’ve always thought.
Guard: (speechless)(proceeds to scan tengu Magus, finds lots of minor magic items and a very magic sword) What the…?!
Magus: (raises eyebrow sassily)
Guard: (weakly) Gonna use that sword on anybody?
Magus: Not unless they give me good cause.
Guard: (grumbles) Fine, go on, the both of you… I don’t get paid enough for this shit…

I am sorry, Dorian,” Chaol said softly. “More than you know.”
“Sorry because lying cost you me - and her? Would you be sorry if you hadn’t been caught?”
Chaol’s jaw tightened. And perhaps Dorian was being unfair, but he didn’t care.
“I am sorry for all of it,” Chaol said. “But I - I’ve been working to fix it.”
“And what about Celaena? Is working with Aedion actually to help me, or her?”
“Both of you.”
“Do you still love her?” He didn’t know why he cared, why it was important.
Chaol closed his eyes for a moment. “A part of me will always love her. But I had to get her out of this castle. Because it was too dangerous, and she was … what she was becoming …”
“She was not becoming anything different from what she always was and always had the capacity to be. You just finally saw everything. And once you saw that other part of her … ,” Dorian said quietly. It had taken him until now, until Sorscha, to understand what that meant. “You cannot pick and choose what parts of her to love.” He pitied Chaol, he realized. His heart hurt for his friend, for all that Chaol had surely been realizing these past few months. “Just as you cannot pick which parts of me you accept.”
“I don’t -”
“You do. But what’s done is done, Chaol. And there is no going back, no matter how hard you try to change things. Like it or not, you played a role in getting us all to this point, too. You set her down that path, to revealing what and who she is, to what­ever she decides to do now.”
“You think I wanted any of this to happen?” Chaol splayed his arms. “If I could, I would put it all back to the way it was. If I could, she ­wouldn’t be queen, and you ­wouldn’t have magic.”
“Of course - ­of course you still see the magic as a problem. And of course you wish she ­wasn’t who she is. Because you’re not really scared of those things, are you? No - ­it’s what they represent. The change. But let me tell you,” Dorian breathed, his magic flickering and then subsiding in a flash of pain, “things have already changed. And changed because of you. I have magic - ­there is no undoing that, no getting rid of it. And as for Celaena …” He clamped down on the power that surged as he imagined - ­for the first time, he realized - what it was to be her. “As for Celaena,” he said again, “you do not have the right to wish she ­were not what she is. The only thing you have a right to do is decide whether you are her enemy or her friend.

Humans are Weird

Writing prompt everyone:
We all know humans are space Australians right? And even humans find Australia a scary as fuck place to like (like 90% of the fauna can and will try to kill you).

So now I’m thinking, what if Australia becomes known throughout the galaxy as the worst death-hole in the quadrant, and humans, particularly Australians, being the enterprising buggers that we are, decide to run an intergalactic supermax prison in the heart of the outback? Imagine the most Bogan of yobbo prison guards, imagine aboriginal tribes that are in charge of the truly hard cases, and freaking the aliens (and other humans) out with Dreamtime magic. Imagine guards who just let the truly desperate criminals run into the bush, knowing they’ll have to send out a search party in a couple days to collect what’s left of the body.

I’ll get around to writing something, but I want to see what the rest if you can do with it!
