Accumulated scene setting sketches from my D&D story Necropolis, which my players finally finished today.
My favourite thing is that the last pic – the final boss battle – was absolutely not supposed to have a giant baobab tree growing through it. But instead of knocking on the door like normal people, my players made a more… creative entrance
- pen/sharpie/pencil to draw on your pattern - carving tools and or exacto knife - rubber carving block - scissors -ink pad - paper to stamp
Step two Measure and cut the size of your stamp ( you can buy smaller blocks of rubber that dont need to be cut or pre mounted/cut rubber)
Step three Draw out your design, for my lack of drawing and carving ability i try to avoid shading… so i keep it simple and color in what lines i am going to carve out. You can also reverse that and carve out all the white space…. depends on how you want your end result to look.
When your design is finished, time to cut!!
For this design i am using the small knife, just tracing the outer and inner red lines so it peels away.
Step five When your design is all carved out, time to test it <3
whala! You’ve just made your own custom stamp. You can mount your piece of rubber on wood or a hard surface to make sure it doesnt break or get ruined.. OR you can flip it over and make another stamp on the back! ( <- thats what i do)
Custom stamps are awesome for etsy shop owners or anyone who crafts… 100% unique hand crafted stamps are a great way to add an extra little something to your customers packages <3
happy april, everyone! i hope none of you were fooled the other day. i spent some time planning out this month using the white grid calendar designed by @arystudies, and now i’m trying to get back into the groove of being productive again after a relaxing spring break.
currently listening to: “no promises” - cheat codes ft. demi lovato
yknow, an interesting thing for the mcelroys to do could be, when making new merch, commissioning a few different artists to do unique designs - so you get a bit more diversity and individuality in the format and content, y’know?
Request by: anon -
Hi! I was wondering if I could request a Lucifer x reader where Chuck is like “yeah Lucifer has a soulmate duh” so Sam, Dean, Cas, Lucifer, and Chuck all go to find them (Sam and Dean ready for her to be all evil) but they’re super intelligent and sweet? Thank you!!
A/N: Thanks for the request <3
No one’s POV
Sam, Dean, Cas and
Chuck were all sat silently in the room thinking of ways in which they could
make Lucifer less angry at everything which reduces the risk of him throwing
one of his ‘tantrums’ and destroying his brothers and humanity.
“I guess we could find
his soulmate,” Chuck spoke out loud breaking the silence causing both Sam and
Dean’s heads to shoot up and stare in Chuck’s direction.
possibility,” Castiel replied to his father before continuing to look down at
the lore book in his hands.
Both Sam and Dean just
continued to stare at them in shock. The Lucifer, the very fallen angel which
wanted to destroy humanity, had a soulmate, a human soulmate. A long period of
silence followed as they were both too frozen to say anything.
“Wait what? Lucifer
has a soulmate,” Dean spoke breaking the silence asking the question both him
and Sam wanted to ask.
“Yeah Lucifer has a
soulmate, duh,” Chuck laughed as if it was the most obvious thing in the world,
“I made every angel have a soulmate.”
take us and Lucifer to her?” Sam asked Chuck steadily and Dean looked at him as
if he had just said the most stupid and crazy thing in the world.
I can,” Chuck replied looking over the small group of people within the room,
“It’s just getting Lucifer out of his room and agreeing to the plan that’s
going to be the hard part, I don’t think he even knows himself that he has a

to the angry archangel only a few rooms down from them.
not going in there alone with no defence against a moody archangel.” Dean spoke
you calling moody?” A smooth voice called out causing everyone’s heads to shoot
over to where the sound came from.
stood Lucifer leaned against the doorframe with a smug expression covering his
face, it was the first time anyone had seen him come out of his designated room
almost as if he could sense that the others were talking about him.
come sit,” Chuck spoke causing Lucifer to pull a face which resembled disgust.
here,” he replied. Lucifer still wasn’t back to being 100% father and son with
God (in fact he acted like a teenager) but they seemed to be better than they
were when he first got out of the cage and being moody constantly was better to
Chuck than his son not talking to him at all.
what do you all want, I could hear you all thinking my name from my room,”
Lucifer spoke into the silent room taking notice of the shocked expressions on
the Winchester’s face’s when looking at him.
decided it would be best if took you to see your soulmate.” Castiel informed
evident on Lucifer’s face for a split moment in time before it returned
expressionless to try and hide the emotions he was feeling; it was clear to
everyone in the room that he didn’t know he had a soulmate.
“Well, let’s go do that then,” Lucifer spoke calmly yet inside he knew
he was excited. After the fall and spending so long in the cage, he had begun
to think that his father had not created him a soulmate and was pleasantly
surprised to find out that he still had the ability to feel love like his
brothers and sisters, “It’s slightly better than doing nothing in my room all
day,” he added not wanting anyone in the room to acknowledge his happiness, he
still had the reputation of ‘the devil’ to hold.
“That was easier than expected,” mumbled Chuck to both Dean and Sam
with a chuckle before raising his hand and clicking sending them all to meet
Sighing to yourself, you collapsed onto the sofa, your favourite book
in your hand ready to read the night away. The day had been so busy and you
hadn’t had a second to relax so you had decided to spend the rest of the night
just relaxing, listening to your favourite band and reading. That was until you
heard a knocking at the door.
Thinking it was just some hunters coming to you for information you
decided to ignore the knocking at the door and continue reading, trying your
hardest to relax. They could go to
someone else for help, it’s been too long of a day.
The knocking continued so you sighed placing the book down and made
your way to the persistent person knocking at your door so late at night.
Shock was evident on your face when you opened the door to 5 men
staring at you, two looking slightly scared making you confused as to why they
could be here. You slightly backed away from the door in case they were demons
(which you doubted highly due to the friendship you had with Crowley, although
they could be rouge demons) or any other monster which could have found out you
were helping hunters.
Even though you were nervous, your eyes couldn’t help but drift over
to the man with blonde hair you just wanted to wrap your hands in and gorgeous
blue eyes that you could stare in for eternity, your eyes continued to roam
over his body, as did his with yours. You quickly diverted your eyes away from
him in case he noticed you checking him out.
“How can I help you lovely men?” you smiled slightly looking at them
as a whole.
“We was wondering if we could speak with Y/N,” the guy in the trench
“That would be me, please, come in,” you replied, a smile not leaving
your face, you nervously watched as they all stepped onto and over the welcome
mat which contained a hidden devils trap under it. Your worry slightly lifted
when you saw that none of them had gotten stuck. We are demon free, I repeat, demon free you thought to yourself as
the men followed you into the kitchen.
“Anybody want a cuppa?” you asked happy that you weren’t in danger, if
you were they probably would have tried to attack you by now but you were still
cautious just in case.
A chorus of ‘no thank you’s’ was your reply apart from the blonde
headed man replying ‘please’ causing all of the other men to look at him as if
he had grown another head.
“S-Sure thing,” you cursed yourself for stuttering when talking to him
and you felt your cheeks begin to heat up.
You hummed a cheery tune as you quickly spun around and popped the
kettle on before making a drink for the both of you. As you handed the mysteriously
hot man his drink your fingers collided for a moment and everything felt right
like nothing else mattered in that short moment of time but you and him, sparks
of electricity running up your arm. Looking up into the man’s crystal blue eyes,
you searched for any sign that he had felt the same as you but all you saw was
his expressionless face. Quickly, you grabbed onto your drink before sitting
down and inviting everybody else to do so.
“So, what is it you guy’s wanted,” you smiled taking a sip of your
drink. You had always been a cheerful person, from a very young age up until
now and you had always believed that there was too much negativity within the
world that you couldn’t possibly contribute to that, so you tried to spread as
much joy as possible. It was one of the reasons you started helping hunters
with their boring lore work. Lucifer realised that and admired you for it.
“Well, I guess we should introduce ourselves first, shouldn’t we?” the
tall long haired man said nudging the person next to him who continued to stare
at you like you was some sort of myth or legend.
“Wha- oh yes. Introductions. I’m Dean, that’s…” he paused for a second
whilst pointing in the blonde man’s direction, “…Nick?” he said as more of a
question, “Chuck, Cas, and this is my little brother Sam.”
It was now your turn to have shock overcome your face. Did you hear them right? Sam and Dean
Winchester was in your house, in front of you with the infamous Castiel you had
heard so much about. What the heck would they want with you?
“Winchester brothers?” You asked out quietly, surprised that a voice
even managed to come out of your mouth.
“Yeah… That’s us, how’d you know?” Sam asked slightly creeped out that
you knew who they were.
“Oh come on, every hunter knows about you two,” you stated.
Silence overcame the room as the men processed what you had just said,
the only person to show any form of emotion was Nick, a large, proud smirk
across his face at the fact you were a hunter.
“Well then, since you know about the supernatural, we can properly
introduce ourselves,” Chuck spoke motioning to him and Nick, “I’m God, but I
“Pleasure to meet you Chuck!” You spoke happily sticking out your hand
for him to shake, surprising yourself that you didn’t react massively to the
fact he had just told you he was the God.
He chuckled taking your hand in his, your infectious smile crawling its way
onto his face. Everybody then looked in Nicks direction, you saw him nervously
fiddling with his hands.
“I, uh, I’m,” he stuttered, a hand reaching to stroke the back of his
neck to calm him down as he debated whether or not he should tell you the
truth, “I’m Lucifer.”
You smiled and wrapped your arms around him, for some reason it just
felt right and both you and Lucifer knew it. He sighed into the hug relaxing
instantly when you didn’t freak out over who he was
“Well it’s a pleasure to meet you too Lucifer,” you said into the hug
before pulling away from him seeing a smile on his face. The rest of the group
seemed shocked at his display of emotion yet Lucifer decided to ignore them and
keep smiling at you.
“So,” you spoke suddenly clapping your hands together and reluctantly
turning away from Lucifer, “What brings the Winchesters, God and the angels to
these neck of the woods.”
Lucifer’s metaphorical heart stopped for a moment when you
acknowledged him as an angel, he didn’t think he could possibly fall in love
with something as quickly as he was with you.
“You understand the concept of soulmates correct?” Castiel spoke up
and you looked over in Lucifer’s direction knowing where the conversation
seemed to be heading.
“I do,” you answered Castiel but not taking your eyes off of Lucifer
and him not taking his eyes off of you.
“Well, we found out that you are the soulmate of-“
“Lucifer,” you spoke cutting Castiel off. It definitely was the only
explanation for the strong attraction you were having for him, it felt as if
you had known each other for all eternity.
“Yes, Lucifer is your mate,” Castiel confirmed.
You felt as Lucifer’s hand slid down into yours, fingers locking together
causing a grin to appear on both your face and Lucifer’s.
“Okay let’s leave them to it then,” Chuck said shoving the rest of the
boys out of the room and throwing a wink at you. Sam and Dean still continued
to show shocked expressions at your kindness towards everyone as they were
pushed by God out of the room to leave you and Lucifer some privacy to talk.
“Y/N,” Lucifer turned to you and placed a hand on your cheek the other
still locked between your fingers, “I know we have only just met, but it feels
as if I have been in love with you for eternity.”
“Me too Luci,” you confirmed slightly blushing and ducking your head at
the way in which stared lustfully at you.
His hand drifted down to under your chin as he lifted your head to
make you look at him. Your eyes locked with his ocean blue ones and it felt as
if he was staring directly into your soul. Slowly, with his hand still on your
chin, Lucifer leaned down hovering his lips over yours momentarily as your foreheads
touched due to how close you were before locking his lips with yours. As cliché
as it sounds, you felt butterflies erupt in your stomach when your hand reached
up and gripped into his blonde hair. His gentle hand snaked its way around your
waist and pulled you closer to his chest as he deepened the kiss. In this
moment, wrapped in your soulmate’s arms, feeling the best you had in a while,
you knew that you was truly in love as was Lucifer and that he was going to do
everything in his power to protect you.
