this is finn's awesome tag

Hi! I just finished Islands and adored the whole miniseries. Of course I immediately went to tumblr for fanart, and found your awesome drawings of Finn's mom. I clicked the tag and was pretty surprised to see how far back your fanart of finn's parents goes, and you guessed Min's look mad accurately. But how did you know her name was Minerva Campbell in your posts from 2 years ago???

ISLANDS WAS HONESTLY EVERYTHING I WANTED AND MORE IM SO GLAD TO HEAR THAT YOU ENJOYED IT!!!! AND TY SM FOR THE MESSAGE

also i didnt know it was “minerva campbell” specifically - although i did go back and retag my old stuff when islands dropped … but i DID know that he must have called her minnie bc in the visitor, the same episode where finn asks martin about his mom - the very mention of whom makes martin actually try to be honest and answer finn’s questions and take him seriously for once - we are shown that martin named his starskipper “minnie” … and we knew the name was significant because a) a little something something regarding why vessels are given feminine names and b) the concept art for his starskipper said “who is minnie” next to it… so, putting two and two together, “minnie” must have been significant to martin, and the context of the episode suggested that would be finn’s mom :o hope that helps
