Geez, what a difference a year makes! Especially if you’re drawing the same character nearly every day.
I still remember the first time I drew him and being so jazzed and proud about how he was designed, and thinking about how he took way too long to draw, haha. Luckily I’ve gotten faster at it, or else updates would take even longer than they do now :P
Happy Birthday, Fatal_Error :’)
And thanks to everyone for being here to celebrate it <3 I’ve got a little surprise planned, but it’d take a miracle to have it done before the end of today. I’ll do my best though ;)
And if you’re curious, the first image was a part of this, and the second image was from here!
i hate life i’ve been reading a comic online for the past 2 weeks and the internet told me it was still ongoing and now i was reading it, i thought that i was about to catch up and wait for more updates but then they hit me with an extra emotional chapter and then this
AND I WASNT FUCKING READY EXCUSE ME??? I NEED MORE?????
… and all of the sudden, it’ll hit you out of nowhere that your heart doesn’t feel heavy anymore. you’re not waiting for the next thing to go wrong. sometimes you’re tired and sometimes you cry, but living doesn’t feel like a chore anymore.
You wouldn't have any headcanons about Clarisse and Chris Rodriguez, would you?
Thanks for sending an ask!!! I’m always happy to take requests, so I wrote some headcanons for you!! :) I hope you like them!
Clarisse is very overprotective of Chris
And by that I mean that if anyone mentions the fact that Chris was on Kronos’s side in a way that blames him, or brings it up against him, she will not be happy
Chris feels constantly guilty for the fact he went over to Luke’s side initially, and he’s told Clarisse that
Everyone’s quite surprised by their relationship? Like constantly?
When they first start going out everyone makes bets on how long they’re going to last
Everyone loses, because no one thought they’d be going so strong after all this time
They go to Phoenix together for university, and Clarisse hides it, but she’s super, super excited
She finally gets the chance to be normal and be with her boyfriend and it’s everything she wasn’t sure she’d get
Needless to say, Chris balances her in any social situation
He makes sure she’s not too aggressive, but she also makes sure he doesn’t remain too shy, because a lot of the time Chris isn’t great at introducing himself to new people
One of the things that surprises people the most is how unfazed Chris is whenever Clarisse gets angry or basically starts acting like a typical Ares kid, loud and brash
Chris doesn’t even react, but he’s also a match for Clarisse (that’s one of the reasons they work so well together)
Clarisse doesn’t like to share her insecurities, so she doesn’t tell anyone she hates the big house, hates going there now
It all stems from that time when Chris was insane, and she had to look after him in there… going to that room brings it all back
Chris never says anything, but he notices, and he’ll try and make sure they avoid the big house as much as possible
Every year, in the summer, comes the anniversary of Silena’s death. Clarisse always gets super moody and temperamental at these times, trying to deal with her emotions, and it’s only Chris who can calm her down
They have a spot in the woods where they kissed for the first time, some time after Dionysus cured Chris of his madness
It becomes their favourite spot, and the best thing about it is that no one knows about it (or at least, that’s what they think. Don’t tell them that one time Percy Jackson saw them holding hands there.)
Chris wants to become a better fighter, and Clarisse agrees to teach him
Chris actually becomes pretty good
Every so often when they’re placed on opposite teams for capture the flag, things become intense
They both want to win, and so they’ll try their hardest, just because, why not?
Clarisse usually comes out on top due to the fact that she’s got the might of the Ares cabin behind her
But one time Chris spends ages planning the ultimate strategy (he had Annabeth’s help, but don’t tell anyone), and trains for weeks
Sure enough, he wins, and he personally disarms her
He winks at her
“Don’t take it too personally,” he says. “I learnt from the best”
That’s the moment Clarisse realises how much she loves this idiot
It juuuust became Thanksgiving, so Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate it~ If you don’t, then you better go out and get some pie today. You deserve it. Also forgive me for the most stupid and lame joke ever /orz
