own work p

(Slapping some test colours on one of ~17 panels, which are about half roughed out as of tonight! …Not including the backgrounds, which are just sketched in…)

Thanks for sticking around during a period of silence on my end, friends! I had a busy couple of weeks, between finishing up my part of the job for an upcoming project launch at one office, grading a huge stack of papers at the other, and submitting a conference paper, and it left me with approximately enough energy to walk my dog and eat meals for a while there! If you ever want to chat with me and I’m not around on here, feel free to hit me up for my Discord details. 

Anyway, I’m still hoping to do a White Day comic–the one I promised last year, haha–in good time before I launch into some kind of multi-page project in the spring, but man! Time’s really zipping by. @_@

HAWKE FAMILY EDITION

(originally intended to be specific to my hawke but ur welcome to reblog & tag ur own hawke/add ur own headcanons the more the merrier)

  • bethany is the first person hawke tells, when it’s just the two of them, and she helps him cut his hair. it’s an utter disaster and when she sees, leandra immediately flies into action to save the terrible haircut while malcolm watches and laughs.
  • hawke waits a while to tell the rest of his family because he’s so nervous. he knows his parents love him but what if they only love him as a girl? bethany holds his hand under the table while he tells them, and hugs him right after. it’s still scary, but she helps.
  • malcolm understands at once, but leandra has never come across this before. it takes her a long time to stop ‘mourning her daughter’ and realise she is hurting her son.
  • when carver discovers he isn’t the only hawke son, he locks himself in his room. he emerges rather sheepishly several hours later and offers some of his clothes to hawke for him to try out.
  • he asks people to call him ‘hawke’ because he knows he wants to change his name before he knows what he wants to change it to. ‘hawke’ is an easy middle ground, and it sticks.
  • there’s a gaggle of kids who give hawke a hard time when he goes into town, laughing at his short hair and his boy’s clothes. hawke grits his teeth and ignores them, but he comes home crying more than once. carver disappears one day and returns with a split lip and a grin. the kids don’t bother hawke again.
  • malcolm stumbles over pronouns at first, and hawke is too nervous to correct him. but bethany is always there to step in and gently remind their father for him, and soon malcolm is always getting it right.
  • leandra doesn’t remember so well, and finally hawke ends up crying when she forgets and misgenders him yet again. malcolm finds his son out in the barn and sits with him, tells hawke how brave he is, how proud they are of him, how much they both love him. when they come back inside, leandra cries her way through an apology and promises to do better.
  • the family has to move once because a man deliberately misgenders hawke and bethany sets his trousers on fire. their parents are angry at her for putting herself in danger, but her brothers stand up for her. leandra can’t help thinking this is the closest she’s ever seen the siblings.
  • the first time hawke hears leandra refer to him as ‘my son’ to someone, he can’t stop smiling all day.
  • helping hawke choose a new name becomes something of a family ritual while preparing for dinner, batting names around the room. bethany picks names from romance novels, carver suggests the names of his heroes, and malcolm invents outrageously long and ridiculous names that invariably involve terrible puns.
  • leandra is upset at the thought of hawke changing his name - they named him after malcolm’s mother - but eventually even she joins in, drawing on family naming traditions in her suggestions.
  • sometimes hawke worries whether it was worth putting his family through all this trouble, changing his relationship with them for ever. but then bethany calls him her brother, or leandra calls him her son, or someone refers to ‘the hawke boys’, and it just feels so right and he feels warm inside, all over again.

I think it’s hard for me to get into mercymaker as a ship because 1) it’s hard to gauge widowmaker’s canon level of free will when she’s been canonically brainwashed and 2) if there was going to be a doctor/patient relationship in overwatch that would make me cringe, it would be if mercy was treating widowmaker 

 Because like. Widowmaker was brainwashed and stuff by talon, and that’s probs a lot of Bad Doctors and Scientists–which, most of the time, mercy kinda is 

( “i save lives,” mercy argues when it’s brought up. “i push the boundaries to help people, to save them, to make them better–what is wrong with that, exactly?” but she doesn’t answer the original question, doesn’t say what she actually /did/ in the field that day) 

but anyway she’s probably semi-conditioned to listen to people like those who brainwashed her so. idk it just gives me weird feelings 

so for me to feel Okay about this ship, there needs to be at least one of the following takes: 

1) mercy isn’t an experimenter/researcher–she’s primarily a medic

2) widowmaker has more autonomy than not–she’s been brainwashed, yeah, but more in the way of skewing her ethics and altering her memories moreso than making her a winter-soldier-esque tool 

3) mercy is evil and awful and widowmaker has little free will and the whole point of the situation is that it’s gross and bad and is not meant to be a love story 

ya feel me? 

 but god wouldn’t they be so salty together–like let’s go with option 2, where widowmaker finds out her memories aren’t accurate and she hasn’t always been this way and she’s highkey pissed, and great, NOW they’re teaming up with the goody-two shoes and there’s that annoying Sonic the Hedgehog BRAT who keeps popping up EVERYWHERE 

and she ends up hiding out in the infirmary, because there’s only one place where stubborn, annoying, military shits won’t go

Here I'll bug you again! Micro fic #49: nightfall - pairing is your pick! ♡

#49 – nightfall

Eternal night was a concept not lost on Ignis; he understood quite well the plight of those bereft of light.

But being lost in the darkness of night differed quite greatly from being lost without sight.

The blindness that robbed him of his eyes had been painful, as if claws and teeth had dug into his skin and ripped the flesh off his face.

But it was incomparable to the fear and worry of knowing his beloved was fighting a goddess for an ancient power, his own skills immature to that of a deity.

It was a shock to his system and his mind, the concept that his eyes were wide open and yet there was nothing to be had in his field of vision.

But it was nothing like acknowledging the fact that he would never be able to stare into the blue eyes of his prince again; to memorise and capture his face and features all over again.

It was a loss he mourned over as short as possible, a loss he ignored as best as he could, tried to take to it and accepted it as fast as it was needed.

But the most regrettable thing, that the last memory he had of Noctis – beautiful, raven-haired, moonlight-kissed, starbright-blessed Noctis – was him falling from the skies, dropping into the raging dark seas surrounding the Hydraean.

And all Ignis could do was watch him drown.

actually that’s less than I thought, though I didn’t count anything that’s vaguely canonverse or only AU after BOO came out, nor the stuff on my computer I haven’t published anywhere.

Did I miss something?

anonymous asked:

hey just a heads up that you should report that person to tumblr bc they will take down the gifset (and probably delete their blog as well but that's their problem i mean why did they re-post your work?) so yeah i've already had problems like this and tumblr always deletes re-posted gifsets

because they have nothing else to do with their lives, presumably. i’ve reported both sets this person took, and blocked them on several different occassions. (twice when reposting my work and i blocked their IP after they told me to die in hell. ) yeah, it’s been a few days and tumblr hasn’t done anything so far but i’m still waiting so… hopefully. 

if you leave someone a negative and non-constructive review ever at all for any reason then please at least do the author the courtesy of mentioning one thing you liked about the fic, especially if you hung around for more than one chapter and left multiple criticisms 

this isn’t for me, it’s for all the beginning fic writers out there who are fragile and young and learning and can’t get back up after taking a hit. don’t hit them so hard they crumble and give up completely

A thing i have discovered after 2 nights in the apartment; i am much more of a rural area person than previously expected. Its so loud and bright outside the apartment???? What is this nonsense. XD

I imagine people going to a fast food restaurant with pyrrha in the middle of the night and the list of people she’d go with is very small
