BFFs by SparklinBurgndy
BFFs
'She is my best friend.   And by that I mean she knows far too much; should she ever leave I'd have to kill her.'

Interesting how that line is funny when it's a woman talking about another woman and creepy when it's about a man talking about a woman, even though the relationship is the exact same.  Chalk it up to me attempting humor far too early in the morning.

Either way, here is Lego_Verity.  I didn't give her tattoos for obvious reasons, but she does have her locket and she wore an outfit remarkably similar to that in the comic.

So I've Decided to Run Away

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 22, 2015, 6:17 AM
Not from DA or anything, but I'm running away from home.  As in, Indiana.  Also the Midwest.  Possibly the U.S.

After much thought, I have decided that a normal life in flyover country with a steady job is just not for me.  I have started the process to get certified as a divemaster and once that's done, I'm running away, possibly to the Caribbean. 

I will be selling most of my worldly goods in anticipation of this move, so if there's a doll/ lego set/ whatever I have that you *really, really* love, hit me up I will sell it super cheap to DA fans and I may just give them away to friends.

Before you ask, I'm keeping my Loki/Toms and the Verity and me dolls.

Everything else is up for grabs.

The only thing that makes me sad about this is I will have to sell my horses.  Even if I could take them with me, I have an Icey, a Fjord, and a 7/8 Shetland - all cold weather breeds.  They laugh at Indiana winters, but they would die of heat stroke down there.

Mom wants Gytha back, so I'll have to sell Toki and Tinkerbelle.

I am keeping the puppies, though.

Maybe I'll sell this house and buy a sloop.

Verity and Loki by SparklinBurgndy
Verity and Loki
My finished Verity doll!  Original file is HYUUUUUUUUGE because I wanted her tattoos to be visible.

First thru third panel: Note to all doll modders - if you're going to make tattoos on a doll meant to be read as she puts her forearms together, make sure she can actually put her forearms together.  Otherwise I would have swapped the text around so they could be read as she held her forearms out.  Either way, the text reads: The truth didn't set me free.  So I did it myself. 

Fourth panel: (Which is super hard to read because of the glare)  Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.  I think this is particularly appropriate to her relationship with Loki because she knows he's not exactly a good guy.  She knows he's done bad stuff in the past and she knows he's supposed to be evil in the future, but she's treating him as she knows him right now; her slightly amoral friend with wild stories and good food.  Even when she finds out he's supposed to end up being the Big Bad, she disapproves of trying to lock him in a time-proof box because 'That's not how you change the future'  My personal theory, back up by absolutely nothing is that Verity's greatest act of heroism isn't her ability to see the truth, but in willfully becoming the one person who won't give up on Loki.

Fifth panel is her big 'Tell Me No Lies' piece.

Sixth panel is 'The Truth Shall Make Ye Fret' which I figure she could have seen on a quote somewhere since she can't stand to read fiction.  

And did I mention I ship these two?  I ship these two so hard it hurts!  I'm still on the lookout for a suitable charm to serve as the Locket of Invisibility, but I haven't found the right one yet.

Now do you see? by SparklinBurgndy
Now do you see?
"Why I don't wish to rule Jotunheim?"

"You could have just said! Holy crap, it's freezing!"

"This is actually a nice day.  The windchill is only -13 F"

"Screw this, let's go somewhere with a fireplace and warm brandy!"

"That's my girl."

~*~*~*~*~

Verity got bundled up to help with a very meta and pagan -oriented comic on the nature of the jotnar, how not all things are black and white and chaos, nature, and feminity (all of which the jotnar embodied) are not necessarily bad.  Also how the term 'Frost Giant' was a piss poor translation, as not all of them were giants or had ice powers. It was like assuming all Canadian superheroes have ice powers.

Anyway, my camera battery charger went AWOL and the cold is not supposed to last (thank gods) so you'll have to be satisfied with a crappy cell phone photo.

Maybe I'll do the meta comic when I get my new charger around that fireplace with the warm brandy.

Jotunheim by SparklinBurgndy
Jotunheim
Indiana is doing it's yearly Jotunheim impression.

I had a whole comic planned and then my camera battery charger disappeared. I searched for it for two days, then broke down and ordered a new one.  The original didn't immediately surface, as is usually happens with something you break down and buy another of, so I guess it's well and truly lost. The weather's supposed to warm up next week, so I just grabbed a couple of crappy cell phone photos.

Okay, so I had this dream that might make a good story with some tweaking. Problem is, it is very obviously mindless self indulgence. Would you want to read a story that was just fantasy fodder for the author?
