How do you HC courts ethnicity/race/features wise?
Night court - mixed. They’re very diverse. White, tanned, darker brown, all skin tones you can find. And with different facial features also. Women dressed in crop tops and long skirts. But I HC Illyrians as Middle eastern or Latino or Polynesian. I haven’t decided yet. But definitely tanned. And they dress in leathers
Day court - dark skin. African tribal style clothing and makeup/body paint (idk how it’s called but you know what I mean)
Dawn court - Indian or Egyptian skin tone, features, clothing and makeup
Spring court - white with all hair and eye colours
Autumn court - white with also different hair colours but mostly ginger
Summer court - dark skin. And I HC that they wear light colours. White, light blue pink and yellow. And I HC them as super sophisticated for some reason idk how to explain
Winter court - East Asian features, super pale, all dressed in white and grey
“You humans do so love to sort and label us, to place the fae into tidy little boxes. Summer or winter, day or night, sweet or wicked. But the lines are not truly so clear, and we both know it. The simple truth is, we are not human. Our rules are not yours, and we are not so easily defined.”
An extension of my 8tracks Unseelie mixes, I’ve collected these two Spotify playlists. Each has nearly 200 songs intended to be played as a shuffled mix, and is subject to frequent additions.
Lilting celtic melodies and ethereal electronica tracks. Otherwordly, transcendent music for a dance within a faery ring, sunlight filtering through young green leaves. Pale pink roses with a sweet, sweet fragrance that hides the tiny, piercing thorns that lie beneath. Gently babbling streams, icy cold and lined with razor-sharp pebbles.
Deep and sultry tracks, with haunting strings or minor key piano melodies, rich synth beats, and slow, pulsing bass like the beat of a human heart. Bargains made by moonlight, promises of pleasures as irresistible as they are cruel. The glint of sharp, sharp teeth in the shadows. Wine the color of freshly spilled blood, sweet and spicy and worth the deadly price.
i took this as ‘what if the foxes were sensates’ and also i hope you wanted angst because i couldn’t resist (but i made it happy towards the end, w/ the rest of the foxes)(i took some liberties with the s8 part, mostly because that show, while good, is confusing.)(kinda long under the cut, sry) —>
(the 8—> Riko, Kevin, Jean, Neil, Andrew, Aaron, Renee, Jeremy)
Riko and his perfect court. Just think how a cluster is the furthest extent to which the Raven hive mind / synchronicity can be taken. Just think about how goddamn terrifying a line up like that would be. In each others heads, sharing skills and power. Riko becomes obsessed with it, once he thinks he knows what’s going on.
(You might ask how they all ended up playing Exy? Well, with an obsession like his always unwittingly in the back of your mind, wouldn’t you?)
