all i can say is…. wow. its incredible to finally have this done, i never imagined i would be working on it for this long. but even then it’s been a ton of fun, from writing the script to laying out the panels to deciding which red paint splatters should go where. thank you so much for bearing with me all this time. and now that this is finished, there will be more au stuff to come!

a very long moment, Flint, Silver, and Emma did nothing but stare up at Rogers
on the deck of the Queen Anne’s Revenge, as
he thrust the head back into the sack and put it aside like an ugly bit of
bric-a-brac that he was removing from the mantel. It was silent enough to hear
the continued caw and shriek of the birds in the jungle, as they must have all
been desperately and collectively praying for the Walrus’ crew to decide now was a good time to return – but if they
did, they would be gunned down like dogs by the regimented line of redcoats who
had taken position at the railing with their muskets. Three of these were pointed
at Flint, another three at Emma, and two at Silver, who seemed to have been
accorded the least threat, but only slightly, on account of his missing leg.
Nobody said a word. Someone seemed to have taken the gears and windings from
the Watchmaker’s great clock, and stopped the world entirely dead.
you may see,” Rogers said at last, when no one else made a movement or a sound,
“Captain Thatch has already made the fatal error of underestimating me. I
assume you are not in haste to do the same. I do thank you for the recovery of
six chests of the Spanish treasure, but by my account, there must be at least
several more. Where are they?”
raised his serpent’s gaze to the governor’s and said nothing.
by the way, was not a rhetorical question.” Rogers raised a hand, and there was
a shifting and clicking among the soldiers as they prepared to fire. “Where are they?”
Flint said. “I had them thrown into the water here. You’re welcome to jump in
and find them. I think it’s only three hundred feet or so straight down, you
can hold your breath.”
faint, hellacious color crept across Rogers’ high cheekbones. “You’re lying.”
Flint, the liar?” Flint bared his teeth in a very, very misleadingly genial
smile. “But why would I lie about something like that? Would anyone else do the
same? I suppose you’ll have to go hat in hand to the Spanish, and warble some
pretty tune about how you tried so very hard to recover all their treasure for
them, but the barbaric pirates made it impossible. You can tell them whatever
you like. I’m sure it’ll be a good story.”
flush on Rogers’ cheeks deepened. “I am not the courier or the apologist to the
Spaniards, Captain. And even you wouldn’t be so mad as to throw the gold away,
so it must still be on your ship. Bring it up, and we can discuss terms.”
and Silver glanced at each other, seeing as the six chests were in fact still
in the hold, and could be handed over if they thought that would actually spare
them from whatever grisly fate Rogers had subjected Blackbeard to. But saying
so would mean that they publicly and irrevocably abandoned Flint, took the
English side over his and left him to his fate, and all for the sake of warding
off a fate that might be inevitable anyway. Emma could still feel the weight of
her sword in her hand, the way she and Flint had been at the point of blows,
but could not bring themselves to it. “Governor Rogers,” she blurted out,
before she could stop herself. “He’s telling the truth. It’s gone. We threw it
overboard shortly before you arrived.”
holy wow its finally done please click the images and view them full size for better quality!
here are my pieces for @marshofsleep‘s fic Swallowing the Brimstone! this was originally for resbang, but unfortunately, things didn’t go quite as we hoped. despite that, the fic and art are done now, and we can’t stand not posting them after everything.
anyway this fic. wow. i just. what are words. it’s an odd style of writing in second person, but it works in a way that makes this fic incredibly unique. and despite the fact that its a mononoke and soul eater crossover, it’s pretty different from both of those stories, which makes it full of surprises. please, please go give it a read!
Swallowing the Brimstone
In his father’s stead, Thane has been tasked with protecting the valuable fortress of Iron Town, but between wolf gods, demon curses, Star Clan, and the Aranei Empress, every choice leads to bloodshed. Alongside Thane are three warriors: Maka, a cursed princess exiled from her home; Black Star, an assassin who must kill a god to earn his independence; and Mifune, a mercenary who must protect a young girl. Together, these four people are tasked with walking a path that few have ever dared, chosen by the gods to see with eyes unclouded. A Princess Mononoke AU.
The one thing that Castiel Novak can’t do is hear. He excels in his job as an EMT despite the fact that he’s deaf and has never let anything hold him back from being at the top of his game. That is, until he meets a certain man in the aftermath of a car accident.
The one thing Dean Winchester can’t do is touch. Communication should be simple with the easy way that people can read each other’s thoughts through skin contact, but Dean outright refuses anything of the sort and much prefers the gentle caress of fingers on guitar strings. That is, until his dreams of being a professional guitarist are shattered in the accident.
Even with the unfortunate circumstances of their meeting, a friendship grows and there is one thing they realize they can do for each other very well:

A shapeshifting alien crashes his spaceship in the fields of Cloud’s farm. He calls himself Sephiroth and claims to have crashed while investigating an ‘anomaly’ somewhere on Gaia.
