middle right of page

Do you ever read some of your old writing and get really into it until it dies off into a blank page mid sentence right in the middle of an interesting scene and you sit there in disbelief, annoyed at the lazy bum that didn’t finish what was so interesting before realizing it was you, you are the lazy bum….

Trivia
  • Ernest Hemingway never drank while he worked. When he was asked about making a pitcher of martinis before working Hemingway said, “Jeezus Christ! Have you ever heard of anyone who drank while he worked? You’re thinking of Faulkner. He does sometimes – and I can tell right in the middle of a page when he’s had his first one. Besides, who in hell would mix more than one martini at a time?”
  • Hemingway did not invent the Bloody Mary as many people have claimed.
  • Gertrude Stein may have been the first person to use the word gay in reference to same sex couples. The word gay was used over one hundred times, in her essay Miss Fur and Miss Skeene. It was published in 1922.
  • F Scott Fitzgerald’s last royalty check before he died was only $13.13.

This comic was inspired by this post (http://littlegeritathings.tumblr.com/post/126991272889/imagine-italy-wanting-a-pet-but-not-a-puppy-or-a) on @littlegeritathings page. This is the first time I’ve drawn a comic digitally, so its a little rough. Read left to right, large division line in the middle symbolizes two separate pages. Please give me some feedback, there is always room for improvement! Thank you!

Notes: Gen. Written for @foreverlokid‘s request for a post-Age of Ultron ficlet where Thor discovers that Loki is on Asgard, posing as Odin.

Yikes. This one scared me a bit.


When Thor’s shadow falls over Loki, it is like a physical weight. His finger stops moving in the middle of the page, right over the word oversight. The beat of his heart first slows, then quickens as he looks up to take in his older brother’s towering form.

Loki has been caught at last.

He sits on the unkempt floor of his old chambers, surrounded by books pulled from the magical hiding place he carved out at the base of a traveling chest. The book he has chosen is rare, stolen decades ago from the All-Father’s library of forbidden texts. It is not the only one Loki has hidden in his room.

This would not be an unusual sight were it not for two things, the first of which having much to do with Thor’s belief that Loki is dead. The second problem is that he is wearing the All-Father’s face, and while Loki might behave in this manner—so distracted by his research that he simply sat in the middle of the floor to read rather than taking the time to locate a proper chair—Odin would most assuredly do no such thing.

How strange he must appear. A withered old king, reading on the floor like a child.
