Under a cut because it’s a bit gory.

Edward Scissorhands in pastels by sqbr

A dreamy pastel digital painting of Edward Scissorhands for Cam. I’ve never actually seen the movie but he’s certainly visually interesting. I made him look a little more anime/moe because that seemed the natural direction to go in :)

This is giving me so many feels. And, knowing you haven’t seen the movie and your penchant for movies that aren’t incredibly heartbreaking I’m not sure you’d like it either. FEELS.

Yeah my best friend when it came out was a MASSIVE Johnny Depp fangirl and told me all about it which was enough to make me decide not to watch it desite all her squee.

Writing Units 8 and 9

I did eight already. When I came up with nine I wasn’t expecting this subject generator to be so incredibly depressing, after rejecting a bunch about death and regret I got “If you had a choice, what would you dream about tonight?”, which is merely dull.

Buncha boring under the cut.

Sonnet

And so I find myself imprisoned here
Trapped staring sadly at an empty page
For days I saw my doom approaching near
Yet feared not til I was inside the cage
“A sonnet will be fun” my past self thought
My past self was a fool, and I her sap.
Yes “write each day“‘s the mantra I was taught
But poems arent my style, I’d rather rap.
You’ll find no beauty here, no ode to love
For though I love my love’s not made for verse.
My lowly prose won’t reach so far above
And forcing it would just make me feel worse.

Instead I make a joke and waste your time
with awkward meter. Thus: this pointless rhyme.

Summary:

The end of the story that starts like this: Your main character is a compassionate 25 year-old man. The story begins in a police station. Someone is haunted by a traumatic experience at sea. It’s a story about rags to riches. Your character sets out on a rescue mission.

Written for a writing meme. I’ve tried to make it work ok as a stand alone story that just starts in media res.

The Magical Girl’s Journey

I don’t think I’m going to write any more of Riko’s story as prose, so here’s a summary (which is still nearly 2000 words long!) The subsections are based on The Monomyth.

Riko Yamada, Magical Girl by sqbr
A 1am pencil sketch (plus digital colouring) of a character I invented for a writing meme: Riko Yamada, a 40ish year old Japanese Australian biostatistician in a manual wheelchair who unexpectedly transforms into a magical girl. The original description was “This friendly magical girl has large brown eyes and very long, straight, thick, charcoal-colored hair worn in an attractive style. She has a wide-hipped build. She has magic powers that come from a halbeird. Her flattering, nearly-nonexistent costume is red and blue.”, my initial design involved a European halberd since that’s all I knew of but then I saw a Chinese halberd (ji) and they are SO MUCH COOLER LOOKING so she has one of those now instead. Will probably change her two tone tiara-esque outfit since it was inspired by European halberd bearer clothes.

Original Fiction: The Call to Adventure

Yes, at last, the first part of my Magical Girl Heroes Journey. The blurb I was given was “This friendly magical girl has large brown eyes and very long, straight, thick, charcoal-colored hair worn in an attractive style. She has a wide-hipped build. She has magic powers that come from a halbeird. Her flattering, nearly-nonexistent costume is red and blue.”

And here’s the “Call to Adventure”, about 2000 words. And, right at the end, the fight scene! I have the rest of the Journey planned out but don’t know how much of it I’ll write. We’ll see!

Person of Interest: Our Lady Of The Machine by sqbr

Root from Person of Interest with a phone and gun looking very vaguely like a religious icon with the “halo” of the Machine’s yellow square around her head (it looked more icon-y in my head). The background is AI code, dirt, and a binary tree.

There is only one Machine, and Root is her prophet.

#FINCH IS HIGH PRIEST #UNSURPRISINGLY THERE IS SCHISM

Heehee. Exactly :)
