borders and horizons lines
we’re alone but side by side
we’re yet to dream, we’re yet to dream
nothing here is what it seems
sorry i don’t have anything new otherwise atm! i’m preoccupied with Work Art, eep. anywho, here’s the AO3 link where this was originally posted! it has information about the flowers in the endnotes. uvu
HAPPY MOONDAY. i was gonna try and draw something today before the new episode but it just ain’t gonna happen, so have a super fast sketch instead
I DON’T KNOW
I’LL JUST SEE MYSELF OUT
IT GOT BETTER
things scott’s done in a negative light; scott trying to kill him when he was first turned (‘it’s their instinct; they’re killers.’), scott caring more about allison than anything else as a result of her being his anchor, stiles throwing isaac around (because scott would totally confess that in a worried voice) despite him being an abuse victim. and kira would be skeptical, aren’t you his best friend? and stiles would explain that “you can only love someone who hurts you so long”. and he uses -
/the truth/ to poison her mind. and she doesn’t believe at first, but every subtle question she asks gets a yes or a confirmation. from scott, derek, isaac, allison — they all tried to kill each other! they’re monsters! and kira turns to stiles, desperate, what the hell did she get herself into, and he tells her that she can help. she can stop them from ever hurting anyone ever again. and he’ll teach her how. he fosters the darkness in her, the electric violence that roils within them both -
until she /masters/ it. until her eyes gloss white and her teeth turn sharp and they take down the mccall pack from the inside out. they master the ability to manipulate not only their powers but also other people, and they destroy. i cry!!!

Other major arcana assignments under the cut, for shits and giggles!
Hey, guys! Sorry about the silence lately outside of occasional art. I just wanted to drop in and say hi, and give a super thank you for all the reblogs/likes/support, ‘cause I really really appreciate it. ;u;
Have a lil dumb drawing I did of myself for my BBP bio!
Sorry if you’ve sent me a message and you haven’t gotten a reply. Q__Q I get self-conscious about posting non-art things here, so I tend to reply privately and I worry they get lost in the aether—and I hoard the nice messages for when I’m feeling down oop. I’m going to start trying to suck it up and publicly reply on here, though;;;
That said, I’m wayyyy more active on my main/reblog tumblr and my twitter, which you can totally follow! I sometimes post WIP screenshots on twitter too. If you’ve got any questions for me, you can always throw them at me on either of those.
THANKS FOR EVERYTHING AGAIN
non-tw art, AMAZING. though they’re just sketches fjdshkjfsd my dragonborn characters from my two skyrim games. i originally had it for the 360 but i’ve decided to permanently make the move to the ps3, so i’m replaying it (it’s just going to be another game full of me being a nuisance lbh)
on the right is my first character who’s a breton werewolf, my lil feral bb who has pretty much eaten everyone in riverwood. on the left is my new redguard who probably hates everyone already. nearly being executed for no reason is an A+ welcome to skyrim AMIRIGHT
WE PASSED OUR FIRST STRETCH GOAL! Reaching $45,000 means we can add extra illustrations to every single book. But we still have more than a day left before the Big Bang Press Kickstarter closes, so we decided to add a second stretch goal!
If we reach $50,000, we will upgrade all physical books to include signed bookplates/ex-libris labels. This is an exclusive Kickstarter reward that will never be available with any books sold in stores or on Amazon later on. The bookplates will be designed by the cover artists, and individually signed by each author. :)
If you want to help boost the signal and help us find more Kickstarter backers, please reblog our final Tumblr publicity post!
i’ve been wanting to read fic focusing on scott, allison and stiles lately but there isn’t much, if at all Q__Q so I opted to draw things to try and get it out of my system.
scifi AU in which the trio are androids created and owned by a ~shadowy organization~ called Nemeton for likely dubious purposes, since for example Allison’s loaded up on like 5000 ways to incapacitate or kill a man with just her pinky.
Nemeton eventually gets disbanded, dissolved or collapses entirely in on itself, forcing the Powers That Be of the organization to dispose of what remains. Instead of deactivating the three, they sell them off to two rival factions, the Argents and Hales, and are intending to wipe their memories before they’re shipped off to their new homes. Obviously not happy with any of this, Scott, Allison and Stiles run off instead. \o/
how do you scifi, i just don’t know
Big Bang Press is coming up to the end of its Kickstarter funding period! Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has supported us so far, we literally could not do any of this without you!If you haven’t heard of Big Bang Press before: we’re a Kickstarter-based project, publishing three amazing original novels by writers from the fanfiction community:Savage Creatures by Natalie Wilkinson (febricant), is a dark, twisted urban fantasy story taking place in a version of Europe not too far from our own. Shapeshifter Francis Harding is forced to hire a decidedly disreputable investigator to help track down his missing sister. Described by the author as “a book about terrible people being terrible to each other,” Savage Creatures is a grippingly weird psychological thriller.Juniper Lane by Kady Morrison (gyzym), is a lyrical and clever literary fiction romance about two young women navigating life in suburban hell. In the words of our Editor-in-Chief, Morgan Leigh Davies, “Basically, this book is Jonathan Franzen if Jonathan Franzen were a queer woman with a heart and a sense of humor that hadn’t been corroded by decades of profound misery and bitterness about the world.”A Hero at the End of the World by Erin Claiborne (eleveninches), is a hilarious satire on “chosen one” narratives in Young Adult fantasy fiction. You know the drill: a teen boy is prophecied to defeat the Dark Lord and save the world. The only problem is: he doesn’t. After a lifetime of being told he’s the Chosen One, Ewan Mao chickens out at the last minute, and his best friend Oliver ends up killing the Dark Lord instead. Five years later, Oliver is a celebrity while Ewan works in a coffee shop and still lives with his parents. That is, until a magical cult tracks Ewan down and offers him an intriguing way to earn back his hero status.All three novels are by talented fanfic authors who want to make the leap into original fiction publishing, without completely abandoning their fandom roots. The cover art will be drawn by three fanartists: hydrae (A Hero at the End of the World), quaedam (Juniper Lane) and longerrpigs (Savage Creatures), plus extra interior illustrations if we meet our current stretch goal of $45,000.Why you should back Big Bang Press on KickstarterWith just a couple of days left before the end of our KS campaign, we’ve raised enough money from pre-orders to get all three books published. However! Pledging on Kickstarter isn’t just about funding these books. Every single reward level, from $1 to our top reward at $1000+, offers exclusive content that will NEVER be available once the Kickstarter closes. Our most popular rewards include:
- Behind-the-scenes commentary packs with exclusive story content from the authors, character sheets for each book, sketches from the illustrators, and letters from the publishing team.
- Personalised postcard updates from the authors.
- Up to 10,000 words of extra writing (ie, a short story) from each of the authors.
- Art prints.
- A MYSTERY BOX containing personal gifts from every individual at BBP.And that’s just a handful of the rewards we’re offering! To learn more, check out our website (where you can read excerpts from all three books!) or our Kickstarter page. Over 900 people have backed Big Bang Press so far, with the most popular reward being $25: all three ebooks, plus exclusive backer updates. We’ve seen a lot of support from the fandom community so far (our books have already inspired fanart!), along with some pretty flattering media attention from blogs and news sites like io9, HelloGiggles and Book Business magazine.The Kickstarter campaign ends at 1.43am EST, Sunday Dec. 22. That means there’s still time to become a backer! And even if you can’t afford anything right now, you can still support these books by reblogging this post and spreading the word.
Our most popular Kickstarter rewards are $25 (all three ebooks) and $50 (all three physical books). A couple of backers asked if we could provide upgrades for the popular ebook reward levels, to include something tangible like postcards. Sadly, this wouldn’t be practical because it would involve our authors writing 300+ extra sets of postcards, plus mailing costs. However! We really wanted to add a bonus reward to celebrate hitting 75% of our funding goal, so here’s our new behind-the-scenes bonus commentary reward!
This digital pack will include:
- "DVD commentary"-style notes from each of the three authors, giving extra background information on their novels, the writing process, and their experiences when going through the editing/publishing process for the first time.
- early test sketches from the artists.
- character sheets with extra detail and backstory info that didn’t make it into the books.
- fandom meta-style letters or essays from the authors.
- terrible selfies of everyone slaving over their manuscripts while lurking in an un-heated garret, as is traditional for all first-time authors.
- behind-the-scenes diaries or messages from some of the editors/publishers at BBP.
This is all exclusive content that will only ever be available in the behind-the-scenes commentary pack. We thought something like this would be cool not just for backers in general (because you guys are special and are helping to launch the books into the wide wide world), but specifically to a fandom audience.
As fans, we often wish we could learn more about our favourite characters and stories, and this way the BBP authors can help with that. It’s already been really interesting to see the questions our authors have received during their Q&As on Tumblr. Nat hasn’t done a Q&A yet, but Erin’s questions so far have seemed more fannish (“What do you think the main fandom ships will be?”) while Kady’s were to do with the writing process (“How do you navigate writing strong/weak female characters?”). Each of the three authors will have different ideas on what they should include in their behind-the-scenes letters and essays, but it will all definitely be interesting to people who enjoyed the books. :)
The behind-the-scenes commentary pack will be available at $35 or $60+, as upgrades from the $25/$50 all-three-ebooks/physical books reward levels. Here’s what you get in the new upgrades:
- $35: All three ebooks, plus exclusive backer updates, plus the behind-the-scenes commentary pack.
- $60: All three physical books, plus exclusive backer updates, personalised postcard updates from the authors, and the behind-the-scenes commentary pack.
Every pledge above $60 will automatically include the new digital pack. Anyone with a lower pledge level can just add another $10 (or whatever) onto their original pledge, and select this upgrade. And if there’s something you’d really like to see included that we haven’t mentioned here already, we’re open to suggestions! :)
