the reason i am happy

The Wedding 

dedicated to freak-is-the-new-princess
I’m so sorry I loved you for so long. I’m so sorry I kept trying to hold onto you when it was obvious you didn’t want me in your life anymore. All you wanted was to be set free and I think I have finally learned to let you go. Not because I want to, but because you’re happy with out me. And all I ever wanted was to make you happy.
—  I’m sorry it took me so long

The Romance Scene I Wanted with Fenris:

Soft kiss, give him a backrub so he can relax, tell him he’s great, cuddle with armour on, he’s not ready and Hawke doesn’t push, a slow romance that’s about trust, Fenris opens up in all cutscenes after this and his constant tension eases.

The Romance Scene I Got:

SLAM Fenris against the wall, biting kisses, Hawke tops, Fenris has flashbacks midway through and HAwke doesn’t even notice, Hawke passes out and Fenris stays up having panic attacks about repressed memories and Hawke is personally offended?? Fenris breaks up with Hawke because wtf wtf WTF HAWKE

Me, before relationship: really into hermit time, dislikes spring and summer, dislikes the countryside, hates singing, hates other people singing, hates yellow, loves black, loves red lipstick, is into being bitter and really, really into fandom and being skinny.

Me, in relationship: has realized excess hermit time is sign of depression, suddenly looks forward to spring, wants to move to the countryside and raise a goat, makes up silly songs for everything (complete with improvised dances), suddenly likes yellow flowers, prefers pink to red lipstick, is annoyed with bitterness, has no interest in fandom, and is really into baking things with butter. 

Reasons to be happy today:

  • The Waynes are the world’s most competitive family, and they bet on everything. Literally everything. The average bet is low– it’s really the same thirty bucks in singles changing hands– but there are no limits to what those kids will do for $3 and Honor
  • “I bet you can’t eat this pie in one sitting” “I bet you don’t know all the lyrics” “I bet I can make Bruce quote the History of Japan video at a board meeting” “No way” “Watch me” (Tim won with the line “how ‘bout I do anyway,” which Bruce didn’t know was a quote, having heard it from Tim and Stephanie, not the video.)
  • Alfred plays with them. Bruce plays sometimes, but his participation causes Bet Inflation, because he wagers higher-than-appropriate sums. The children are no longer allowed to bet in the kitchen after assorted food-poisoning related incidents.
  • Every time Tim gets a new safehouse, Damian has food delivered to the address, just to prove he knows where it is.
  • “Hi are you Red Robin?” “Yeah” “I have your pizza” “Damian for the love of god I was on stakeout” Bruce won’t interfere because Damian claims he’s just being nice and buying Tim dinner
  • A well-circulated highlight reel of the Wayne family in front of the press, including three eye rolls, five camera stares, two counts of exasperated eye contact, assorted bickering, the time Dick drained an entire wineglass in response to a political speech, and the time Tim and Damian started arguing– and Bruce handed a very smug Cass a one hundred dollar bill in the background.

This story is about the Baudelaires. And they are the sort of people who know that there’s always something. Something to invent, something to read, something to bite, and something to do, to make a sanctuary, no matter how small. And for this reason, I am happy to say, the Baudelaires were very fortunate indeed.”

I FINISHED IT!! Finally! After 5 thousand years!!
Honestly I’m very relieved the deadline was extended or I’d never have made it!
And this is why I don’t colour my comics very often @__@

Anyway, this is for the contest being run by @absolutedream-undertaleart

The goal of the contest was to create something inspired by their Undertale comics of the Skelebros.

This was not very hard in the inspiration part at least, because AbsoluteDream really heavily influenced how I write Sans in general. And really so much of what I put into Sans came from the stories they wrote and although I never copy things, a lot of Sans’ expressions in my art came from AbsoluteDream’s comics.

As for AbsoluteDream’s comics themselves, I always love how they’re usually slice of life comics, but have a small underlying sense of danger to them. It never comes to a head as it does here as I’ve drawn it, but there’s always a very slight suggestion of more serious consequences, even if they never come to the forefront. I love slice of life, and I love dramatic events! And his comics have an amazing balance of both! So much so I hope that we can get some more continuation comics of the Sick Day comic series u.u I wanna know what happens!!

As for the comic itself, this was actually going to be a scene that’s a flashback in Time Scar itself much later on in the story. But in the end, I decided to cut it from the story completely because it completely derailed the flow of the events and since there’s no other flashback in the story at all it didn’t make much sense to suddenly divert into this.
Within the context of Time Scar, Papyrus relates the event to illustrate a point that sometimes we do bad things to other people we never ever intended, but events just roll that way, and we can’t blame ourselves for it. Or something. As I said I cut the scene so I haven’t developed it as strongly within Time Scar as I would’ve had I included it.
However, I am very happy this contest gave me a reason to draw it! As otherwise it never would’ve seen the light of day.

I have no idea why I decided to make it a silent comic. I think that was a relic from when it was a flashback within Time Scar and I just couldn’t let go of the idea because that’s how I had it planned out. I don’t know how successful I was considering I had to rely on “speech bubbles” twice. This is also the first fully coloured comic I’ve attempted like this X’D it was maybe more work than I anticipated.

To answer your first question; no, I didn’t kill Sans. Obviously if this was a flashback in Time Scar it would’ve been more obvious. But as it’s no longer part of the story, don’t worry, Sans isn’t dead.

It was a bad day though. Papyrus doesn’t remember it very fondly.

I have a vague idea of what happens next but it doesn’t really lead anywhere so there’s literally no point in including it at all. I feel this says everything it should and leave on a punchier ending.

ANYWAY IT IS NOW COMPLETE!! I can’t even believe it….
