The group picture I promised I'ld do in return for 100 souls, back in February, is done! And because I got so sick of it, I drew another (the top image is the new one), so double group picture! It’s not that I don’t like it anymore, it’s more along the lines of, I can see so many mistakes and things I would do differently now.
It was really fun drawing them all together, and maybe I’ll draw more group pictures in the future, I guess this has shown that I am capable of doing it at least. Although it may be apparent which characters I play favourites with, I love them all, but Nina and Inej are my girls I love them, they deserve to eat all the waffles they want.
“Wanden olstrum end kendesorum.” It was the first part of a Fjerdan saying, The water hears and understands. It sounded kind enough, but Matthias knew that Nina would be familiar with the rest of it. “Isen ne bejstrum,” she finished.
It is my personal headcanon that when Kaz meets Inej’s parents he breaks out some Suli proverb that Inej once told him in an attempt to impress them, but they’re very confused because they’ve never heard it before and it turns out that Inej has been making them up the entire time
What she means: Kaz “don’t touch me or I’ll rip your arm out of it’s socket” Brekker really pushed through his PTSD and severe phobia of skin to skin contact all so he could help Inej change the bandages on her arms. And he didn’t even have to do it, there were others there that could have helped her out. But he forced himself to do it because he wanted to show her that he was willing to bring his walls down for her, not just so he could touch her but so he could open his heart to her too. She told him she would take all of him or none of him, and he was trying to show her that he would try his hardest to be the man she needed him to be
