For a little fun, I decided to do a "modernization redesign" on an ultra-obscure Looney Tunes character. XD I went with Maarla, a Martian that only appeared in the first issue of the 1994-starting comics. She has a cute design already, so I didn't stray too far from it. XD

So diemarysues prompted: from a list of prompts: Wrestling match on the couch that ends with one of them hitting their heads on the floor and the other has to kiss the booboo better.
And I decided this was the perfect opportunity for a sequel chapter to my Christmas Modern Bagginshield ficlet “Out by Eight” :3 However, this ficlet can stand alone as well, as long as you can roll with the idea that it takes place after a modernized Corporate AU version of The Hobbit where everyone lived. I’ll be posting this on AO3 sometime tomorrow perhaps after some editing, and may toss a different ending on (or just lengthen it a bit, since I’m braindead right now), but I hope you all enjoy!
If Bilbo were to be honest with himself, this was not how he expected his first day of dating Thorin Thrainsson— CEO of Erebor Industries, public figure, and all around majestic son of a bitch— to go.
But the simple fact was, it was Christmas Day. Every store was closed, any restaurant they might have thought to go to was booked months before, and all of their various and sundries relatives were spending the morning at home with their own children and significant others, in particular the Shire clan of Tooks, Brandybucks, and Baggins, which all bred like rabbits. Neither Bilbo or Thorin had dared hope, much less make plans, for such an occasion as spending Christmas together by buying gifts for one another. So when they woke up in bed together that morning, in a tangle of bare limbs and mussed hair, and after some softly exchange morning kisses complete with a great deal of sleepy murmurs and wandering hands both of their eyes had widened with matching looks of childlike wonder at the realization:
Neither of them had anywhere else to be that day.

I’m probably going to do more because it was a lot of fun! Also golden sun is my favorite and it makes me sad there isn’t more art for it :(
I love the idea of adapting a Shakespeare play (any of them) so that it centers on the lives of a crew of theatre technicians
I really want a modernized version of Cyrano de Bergerac where Cyrano is a girl and woos Roxanne through a boy. And it'd totally have the same spirit as the original but with nice new themes of sexuality and such. If this doesn't exist, I may have to try and write it.
