the Princess and the Jester

8

Whew, wanted to shade these but I doubt I got so lazy ;__;

Anyhow, here is a few character designs for my Undertale AU Underkeep! Mettaton rules the underground (not following the neutral ending though), and everyone we know is appointed to a position of sorts in this fantasy land like place:

Frisk - The Hero (shown in both their prince and princess outfit)

Papyrus - Second in command of the Royal Guard

Sans - The Royal Jester/Overseer of Snowdin

Muffet - Duchess of the Spiders/Royal Baking Specialist

Mettaton - High King

Alphys - Marquess of Hotland/Royal Scientist

Undyne - Baroness of Waterfall/Head of the Royal Guard

Hopefully I can get the other characters done soon as well! Also, everyone’s outfit is (hopefully) reminiscent of their location and/or title (Alphys represents fire, Undyne represents water, etc)…

Shallura Week Day 7: Change / Beginning

“Let us start over, Takashi. My black paladin. My Shiro. I want to start my life over with you…”

It’s days late but I finally finished this piece for the last entry of shallura week. I was heavily inspired by THIS SONG (Please listen for the full experience) and got the idea of letting these two take a little ‘escape’ into an underground lake on a planet filled with bioluminescent activity. They deserve some peace and bliss, honestly. 

This print is now available on my Redbubble | My Art Tag

SO I had to do something in honor of season 2 and my girl, Allura, who I hope will be kicking more ass. This was a lot of fun, and I really tried…( ^_^;)/ 

Rapped to Nicki Minaj’s verse in “Monster” (written and voiced by me)

Lyrics:
Pull up to the galra
automobile parlour
With a bad bitch that came from balmera
Yeah Im from altea, about to lose my bonker.
You could be the king but watch the queen conquer

“Daisy is just a Peach clone!” The Ultimate Response

“Daisy’s just a Peach recolor!”
Peach is a blonde and Daisy’s a ginger. Peach’s dress is rose and pink while Daisy’s is yellow and orange. Peach’s jewels are blue and Daisy’s have been green since 2002. They don’t even have the same skin-tone despite Daisy having a short-lived tan. So they are color-coded for your convenience, but they are not differentiated by color alone.

Daisy has always had her own facial-features and hair-style, as seen in her first two appearances, Super Mario Land and NES Open Tournament Golf, but in 2000 her facial-features were made more distinct in Mario Tennis on the Nintendo 64. In 2002, with the release of Mario Party 4 on the Nintendo GameCube, this became more obvious with the graphic-enhancements from the jump in console generations.

At this same time, Daisy was also given an even more unique hairstyle, as well as her own body-type. She’s shorter than Peach, and is recognized as being thicker than her, having even been categorized in a heavier weight-class in some Mario Kart games.

The most similar thing about their appearances are the princess gowns. Even those are differentiated, though, with Daisy having a flower motif, as well as a number of other visible differences. Meanwhile, Mario and Luigi wear the exact, same outfit aside from Luigi’s hat having an ‘L’ patch and Mario’s having an ‘M’. Additionally, in 2003, with the release of Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, Daisy and Peach are shown to have different, primary athletic-clothing; Daisy having sport shorts, and Peach a miniskirt.

“Daisy’s just a Peach recolor!” in-close
The alternate color Peach has in the Smash Bros. series of Daisy’s color-scheme is just that. Mario has had a Wario color since the first game, and even Luigi has a Waluigi color; so on with many others in the series. The discrepancy was in Melee, where they added Daisy’s floral details to the alternate outfit. This was based on their appearances on the N64, a time when, as exemplified, the characters’ appearances weren’t as established and differentiated as they now are. This was not an actual representation of Daisy, and unlike Luigi to Mario, Daisy has never been a Peach recolor.  

Above compilation provided by Outfoxy on Kinja.

“Daisy doesn’t have a personality!”
In 2003, with the release of Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, Daisy was given a new voice, Deanna Mustard. Daisy’s voice finally matched her original description of being a tomboyish, energetic Princess. This was a description made in her debut as a damsel-in-distress, despite the role. On the character select-screen, Daisy poses from side to side, flexing her arms and exclaiming, “Mhm! Mhm!” sassily. Some of her quotes from the game include:“S’up, I’m new, but golf is my thing! And I’ll go toe-to-toe to prove it!“ “Seriously, are you aiming there?” and, “Yes, yes! I rule! I rule!”

From here on, Daisy’s vernacular has had an American twang and recurring usage of Western slang. “Yo!” is a catchphrase Daisy utters in various appearances.

In 2004, in Mario Power Tennis, Daisy will scoff, “Tch,  I’m so sure!” and, “Whatever!” in response to the opponent getting a point. In her trophy ceremony, she rolls-out in a pair of roller-blades, remarking to Luigi, “Hey sweetie! I’ll take that,” as she jumps, spins, and lands to grab the trophy from him, leaving him spinning until he collapses.

Super Mario Strikers, 2005. Daisy will come out on the field exclaiming, “Yeah? Yeah?!” throwing her arms open and grimacing at her opponent before, “Tch. Mm-mm,” turning away in disapproval. Scoring a goal, she pops her hip and licks her finger before touching it to her thigh, sounding out, “Tsssss- Ow, Daisy!”

Mario Strikers Charged, 2007. Daisy drops down onto the field, raising up off the ground to exclaim, “Oh, yeah? Come on!” striking a boxer-pose as a bell rings-out. Upon being scored on, Daisy will turn to her teammates, crossing her arms and tapping her foot as she furiously growls; they are seen trembling beneath her. Scoring a goal, she brushes her shoulders off one before the other, simultaneously, “Uh-huh! Alright! Daisy!” followed by shrugging.

A selection of the many quotes from 2011′s Fortune Street include:

  • “Yeah, sure. Big castle. Woooo. I’m totally impressed. Could use a few more flowers though…”
  • “I bet Bowser seriously thinks this goofy castle is totally intimidating. As if!”
  • “I totally want to scale up the side of that statue. What a challenge!”
  • “I’m supposed to pick out a new trade here, huh? Let’s see… Maybe I should be a professional athlete! Yeah!” 
  • “You may wonder why I want to win so badly. Well, it’s ‘cause I just HATE losing!”
  • “Winning is a matter of timing and luck. I don’t have either, but I’ve never let that stop me before!”
  • “Don’t underestimate me, people! Just because I’m a princess doesn’t mean I won’t fight dirty!”
  • “If you give me a good number, little die, I’ll promote you to court jester! I’m a princess - I can do that!”

“Daisy doesn’t have a personality!” in-close
So Daisy is not as proper or poised as she would be based on her appearance and status as royalty. She’s usually standing with her hands on her hips, exhibiting hotheadedness in defeat, showboating in victory, and showing off to get her way. Yes, she partakes in the princess life of luxury, but she’s well extroverted and outgoing, and as exemplified, she’s tough and sassy, too. Sounds like a personality whether you like it or not.

“Daisy’s annoying!”
If that’s your opinion, why are you saying it as if it’s a fact? You stop that. You can irrationally hate something if you want to, but it doesn’t reinforce the other negative matters here, and it doesn’t negate the facts. Any Mario character could be accused of being annoying. How about, “Wah!” And, “It’s-a-me, Mario!” Additionally, “Ohhh- Did I win?” Finally, [Random Animal Noises from DK]. Even Rosalina emotes. What you could find annoying about a character, all their fans could find admirable or charming about them.

“Daisy’s just a filler-character!”
A filler-character is someone merely included to make numbers, rather than to add something to the cast. Filler-characters have no intellectual or entertaining value, and no input.

This is only applicable to Daisy in certain appearances, and to certain extents. For example, in most Mario Party games there is nothing to differentiate the characters from one-another when it comes to most of the gameplay, but most of Daisy’s appearances in these games still include doses of her unique personality and representation, which are elements of gameplay. The best example would be in Super Mario Land, where Daisy filled the role of the damsel-in-distress, much as Peach does in most of her appearances in this role. This is the one and only time Daisy ever fills this role herself, however.

It should be pointed out, also, that Daisy was reintroduced into Mario games in Mario Tennis because they wanted more human characters. That is filling a role, but that doesn’t necessarily equate to being a filler-character; which should be obvious. In this game, Daisy did have her own play-style, voice, appearance, and personality. Indeed, for the first time she was portrayed to be outgoing, jumping around the court with each point. She also gets so caught up in her own victory celebration, she falls off the stage.

As her appearances continued, Daisy proved to have even more differences in play-style than not just Peach, but the other characters, too. In Mario Golf, Daisy’s play-style is entirely unique, having her own, designated attributes.  In Mario Power Tennis on the NGC, Daisy’s flower powers are heavily explored, being able to summon petals around her racket to deliver a powerful shot, and being able to float over a growing bed of flowers to reach the ball for a defensive return. As of the most recent tennis game, Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, Daisy is no longer even in the same category-type as Peach, being an All-Around type instead of a Technique type like in her earlier tennis appearances, showing this character continues to evolve over time.

Daisy has her own special abilities in many other games, as well. In the first baseball game, Mario Superstar Baseball, Daisy has the Flower Ball, which conceals her ball in a barrage of confusing petals. In the second baseball game, Mario Super Sluggers, she has the Flower Swing, which conceals her ball’s destination in a flower-garden with an accompanying fence, guarding it off. She has the unique ability of a Super Dive, as well, letting her dive great lengths to catch a ball. This game also introduced Baby Daisy, who has appeared in numerous games since. Daisy also has the Crystal Smash from Mario Strikers Charged, a special ability where Daisy punches the ground, which then erupts with giant, jagged crystals that wreck opponents. In Mario Sports Mix Daisy pulls out a pair of pom-poms to deflect objects and people.

Daisy also has her own levels in games like Mario Kart, where the Daisy Cruiser, her own, personal cruise-ship, was introduced. This level reappears in numerous Mario Kart games, and served as her personal stadium in Mario Super Sluggers. Other Daisy levels include the Daisy Circuit, Daisy Hills, and Crystal Canyon.

“Daisy’s just a filler-character!” in-close
They do not pay separate actors money to reprise a role for over a decade, create multiple versions of, create entire levels based-on, develop a unique design for, design multiple costumes for. establish a unique personality for, create individual special-abilities for, and assign personal-statistics to a mere filler-character.

Daisy has received developmental changes over time that address these matters. Saying things like this really ignores that effort, and it only acknowledges her status and description in her earliest appearances.

“Daisy’s a spin-off character!”
Daisy has appeared in more than fifty games to this day, December 15th, 2015. Forty-four of her appearances have her as a playable character. One of her appearances was in a Mario platformer game, that being her debut-appearance, Super Mario Land.

Did her appearance in this game contribute to the game, or even she herself? Well, it established her kingdom, and her description as a tomboy princess. It served to set a Mario game in a place outside of the Mushroom Kingdom for a change. If she was merely created for the spin-off games, she’d probably have less going for her character’s background and history. Still, as covered, she herself didn’t receive much of any notable attention in the game, serving as the measly, damsel-in-distress role Peach has so often.

The platformers aren’t necessarily all that they’re made out to be by Nintendo fans. The spin-off games are no less canonical to the Mario series than any of the platformers, and Nintendo gives zero gold-coins about story compared to gameplay either way. The platformers can be just as much of cash-grabs, too. Anyone who plays most Mario games should know all that. Why is it then that so much importance is placed on a character appearing in the platformers compared to the spin-offs?

Well for some characters the platformers have given that opportunity for good character growth in a short number of appearances, as opposed to the character growth exemplified here for Daisy, which has occurred over many appearances. That doesn’t mean that being in a platformer necessarily will give character growth, however. Many of the characters’ appearances in the platformers have given just as little to them as some of the spin-offs. There is still a clear advantage in a character gaining development in one of the platformers, however. This is simply what it comes down to.

“Daisy’s a spin-off character!” in-close
So yes, Daisy is a spin-off character. There’s a lot not being accounted for in her decade and a half of consistent appearances, though. A lot that has added-up to garner respect that she’s not getting.

So it’s like a double-edged sword where she now has a lot going for her because of these appearances, but the stigma of appearing in only spin-offs is preventing enough recognition.

Her fans still yearn for her to appear in more opportunistic roles because we know it’s what could turn others around. Appearing in the platformers or something like a Smash Brothers game would put her in the spotlight she needs to show all that she’s become. I hope the people who say these things against the character can read this and get a grasp of all there is they may be missing.

Overprotective

  • If ANYONE dares make a move on you then they dead bro

Leaving you

  • You’d expect a sweetheart like the Joker to always save and protect you, right? Newsflash, he puts himself first.

Don’t get me wrong, he loves you and he’ll always come and get you, but he loves himself more

Him spoiling you

  • He’d get you anything and everything.
  • You wouldn’t even need nor want it, but he’d get you it
  • Giant, pink, rainbow glittered stuffed dolphin? Yep.

Yelling

  • He’d get anger and yell and scream at you and the world
  • Some nights, you fall asleep to the sound of his yells
  • It reminds you of the stories you were told about all the things he did to her
  • You always had to remind yourself that if he ever laid a hand on you, you’d kick his ass

You’re different

  • He would never not remind you how different you are from anyone you’ll know
  • The two of you need each other, but not in the obsessive way
  • You weren’t Harley
  • That name sent venom down his spine
  • You were different—you are different
  • The difference between you and her was simple yet complicated: Joker tricked Harley into falling for him. He never needed to trick you.

Date nights

  • He’d take you to the fanciest restaurants of Gotham
  • Which usually ended with guns, fire, explosions, and Batman
  • You lived for those nights
  • They were mostly unexpected. He loves to surprise you
  • Sometimes you didn’t go on date night for weeks, other times you had date night every other night

You’re referred to as “His Jester”

  • At first, people called you his “Clown Queen(/king) of Crime” until they realized their mistake
  • Joker hated—loathed—when anyone compared you and Harley. Or saw the two of you as one
  • You were new
  • Different
  • No Harley
  • He saw that
  • You are his Jester

Nicknames

  • His: Princess(/Prince), Kitten (my own personal favorite), Honey, Sweetheart, Gorgeous, Doll, Angel, Mine.
  • Yours: Dreamboat, Handsome, Buttercup, Muffin, Boo, Punkin’(or Pumpkin).

Kissing

  • Everywhere, anytime
  • Your favorites are when you’re reunited after a while
  • Or after the two of you killed someone
  • Or after anything
  • Pretty much all kisses are best
  • People would think that they’re always rough, but they’re not
  • He wants to show you how much he cares because the words never seem to fit right in his mouth
  • They start out sweet and they end sweet
  • Then there’s the rough ones
  • These usually happen when the two of you were separated for a while (mostly when the two of you are at Arkham and locked in different rooms far from each other)
  • Sometimes it leads to…something else, other times the two of you have to cut it short
  • Either way, it’s pretty hot

PDA

  • The two of you have to show at least one from of affection for one another in public
  • His arm wrapped tightly around your waist, holding you close and hard against him
  • Sitting on his lap (mostly during business meetings)
  • Those rough make out sessions
  • Teasing (like nicknames and joking and stuff like that not sexual (but I mean, he does that too (that’s beside the point)))
  • You cuddling up to his side
      • This mostly happens when you’re bored and he’s still doing business
      • He doesn’t mind though

“I love you”

  • You were the first, and only, one to say it
  • Joker kissed you afterwards
  • It was a rough, but sweet kiss
  • His hands griped your face
  • When he pulled away he pulled a Han Solo and was like “I know boo”
      • He didn’t say that exactly
      • But you get it
  • He doesn’t understand the concept of love or what love really is
  • His mind is fuzzled and can’t connect the dots on it
  • But he knows
  • You make him sane
  • Not like the kind that makes the Joker not the Joker
  • But the kind that helps him see things—see you—clearly
  • Without you, his world is just another joke gone wrong
  • You make the world a laughing matter
  • You make his world his vison

That’s all I could think of lol

HARLEYIVY WEEK 2017

Day 5 : Fairytale // A princess falls in love with the court jester

(click for better quality)

Basic Jester Breeds

Common

People often mistake Common for Court, but that is not true. Common Jesters are the Jesters you typically see around in the wild; They have moderate aggressiveness for a Jester, and they are, as other Jesters are, very territorial. They have no special markings, only a few stripes and bells on their hat and no triangular bottom of shirt.  

Court

These are more aggressive Jesters, distinguishable by the lack of frills, triangular shirt bottom coated in bells, and pointed shoes. Some Court Jesters may want different styles of hats, as well; For example, a horse-earred hat.

Striped

Contrary to popular belief, there is a difference between your regular Jester and your Striped! For starters, Striped have plenty of stripes, as opposed to a normal jester’s few. There are Horizontal, Vertical, and Diagonal Striped Jesters. Striped Jesters are very social, and it’s recommended you keep them in at least pairs.

Spotted

There are Polka Dot, Rainbow, and Small Dot variants. Spotted Jesters are one of the less violent species, less aggressive towards other Jesters, Clowns, and Mimes. However, they are still somewhat territorial.

Jewel

Diamond, Teardrop, Princess, and Radiant are the main types of Jewel Jester variants. Jewel Jesters tend to be much, much pickier than other jesters, requiring expensive wine, high-quality objects, velvet hats, and gourmet table scraps. They tend to be somewhat stuck-up.

Petite

Petite are the smallest of Jesters, growing from one foot to two feet tall at the most. Many like these ‘pocket-sized’ Jesters, especially when young, as they stay small for a much longer time. However, their small size puts them at risk of many natural things. They tend to have more frills than the rest, and appear somewhat doll-like. They’re very docile, as many others are capable of taking them down.

mysterious and 2spooky sorcery-types in my fairy tale? why wouldn’t there be?

also for those asking I’m probably going to begin posting this story when the website is completed- as I can’t really see the point in starting posting it on smackjeeves or the like with that in the works- and as I don’t actually know when that’ll happen I can’t actually say when you’ll get to see it BUT it means I have the chance to work up a bit of a buffer so I might be able to post two pages at a time or something nice like that

so yes as always sorry and thanks for your patience!
