“So, my godson is to marry an Ottoman Princess?”
“My brother felt that it would do well to search for an alliance outside of Europe - and with our children being so closely related he could not go to France. Besides, is it not a coup that the girl will convert?”
“You are right, of course. Besides” and at this Francis smirks “The Emperor will be furious but with no outlet for it for he cannot claim to have been snubbed in this matter. Your brother must be delighted with the Duke of Essex for having orchestrated such a coup - though what more honours can he give him.”
Queen Marie does not say that if her brother could, he would have crowned the Duke of Essex a king beside him and Queen Anne.
(A snippet that came to me from the Tudors OT3 verse version of A Queen Twice Over By FalconHour)
It had taken until Thursday evening for Alec to realise that something was unmistakably off about his week. Pre-season was in full swing and he’d been pulling what he usually did: extra hours to watch training footage, adjust the approaches taken by the coaching team, and to watch how his players were progressing. Ever since he and Lydia had parted ways and he’d taken up managing Real Sociedad, that had been his life. What made it ring strangely to him was the fact that besides a few texts back and forth, and seeing one another during training, he and Jace had hardly spent any time together. The other’s hours were regular, unlike Alec’s; to stay in prime fitness, he couldn’t be short on sleep to the degree Alec sometimes was, or deviate too heavily without there being a long-term price. Alec knew, he’d been a player, and that meant that something had to change. When he’d asked Jace if they could talk and spend some time together, Jace had countered with Saturday.
What that meant was that Alec had left the club on time on Friday, when he was meant to. He’d slept in the next morning for what felt like the first time since his summer visit to Barcelona, and the sensation felt almost foreign. He’d headed off to Jace’s later on with a short stop at a local restaurant to pick up lunch for them to share. It was a selection of well-made sandwiches, salad and different sides, all delicious and all within what he and Jace both tended to eat once the season swung in. Once he arrived at the other’s house, he’d been better rested, and wearing a smile on his lips solely for the person who had slowly been captivating him for weeks.
It wasn’t until they were settled in with lunch at the table, though, that Alec opted to bring up what was on his mind. “I realised that despite us being at the club every day, I’ve hardly seen you at all this week,” he began. “And that’s down to me. I haven’t been fully present because I've pulled hours I probably shouldn’t, and your schedule isn’t as flexible.” Earnestly, Alec studied Jace then, lingering over looking at him, very aware that there was at least one thing he wanted just as much as he wanted football. That was new, and it was shocking to realise that it was. “I want to prioritise time with you that nothing else can touch, even if to begin with it’s just a call or lunch every week or something simple. Whatever you feel most comfortable with." Folding his hands, much less nervous than the last time he’d talked to Jace about something pertaining to their potential relationship, Alec smiled a little. “We said that we’d take things slow, so maybe we also need to talk about what we both feel that is?” Neither of them had had anything like this before, so it made better sense to bring this up now and find out what page Jace was on.
Valjean took Cosette's outburst so bad...
But he's just a bit over-dramatic.....
(Also, I have no idea about his weird pose on the last panel, neither where his right arm is... <.<)

The training course I'm having these months is increasing the hours of classroom lessons, so I'm having so less time to work on this comic.
So, sadly, since now until the end of June (when the course will ends) I will put the comic on hiatus here on Tumblr/Facebook/Instagram, while I'm posting a page every TWO weeks on Patreon (as I just can't gain enough time to post a page every week), so I will still gain some more gap from the first posting of the pages on Patreon, and the re-publish of them on socials.
I'm really sorry about this, people, but I simply can't maintain the same publishing speed, for the moment >_<"
Idk that feeling when u and ur partner always act like a married couple but ofc you dont like him🙄🙄🙄
For anyone curious, the development of nekomimi Genos, nicknamed Catnos, in pictures below...
Drawing cute catboys/catgirls/catenbys is a long and honoured tradition and I have drawn various proto-catborgs over the years, here’s some of them - you can see some elements that were later incorporated into Catnos, though these weren’t part of a larger story or anything-
The drawing that set the wheel in motion, also originally a silly random drawing, inspired by a photo of a black kitten claws out that I drew a few years back:
I had so much fun with this I felt inspired to keep drawing this setting... again and again and again...
Originally nekomimi!Genos was drawn more like a chibi/kitten character but soon grew to his normal full size & maturity. I decided he is technically ”tiger ears” rather than ”cat ears” (though no one around him, including himself, realizes this). Over time I’ve experimented with his design, changing the details back and forth etc. As I’m writing this I’ve made about 200ish drawings for this AU. With that came a lot of worldbuilding, some kindly offered/suggested by other people, thank you!
The drawings are usually silly and just for fun but there’s also a more serious written story about the AU.
Usually I draw him in a more chibi style because that’s fastest and easiest for me, like this:
There are exceptions, though. We’ve gone from the kitten grabbing the glove above to this :) Which I think also illustrates how my skill has increased over the span of the last couple of years.
I honestly can’t say for sure what it is that compels me so about this setting. After 2+ years I still haven’t gotten it out of my system! But it is a lot of fun to play around with this world and there will be more drawings in the future... I know sadly people get crap even from their teachers and such about how they just want to draw a specific thing over and over but honestly? Doing something over and over helps you improve at it, but to keep doing it you need motivation. So if you already HAVE motivation for something... use it!
*vibrates becuz of the serotonin i get from ur au*
/*whisper* I know, bruh XD/
Finn: Who the fuck added me to a fucking group chat?
Freya: >:O language

Shadow Play Part 3
I really should post fast but therefore I need to translate faster... It is a never ending story.
Anyway have the next part @ashen-crest @adie-dee @cometworks @vivian-is-writing @viskafrer
"So, what do you plan to do about your murderous shadow?" asked Arritit between sips of tea at the breakfast table.
Rahnirin just laughed to herself. Sojan suspected it was also because he was a little confused by the sudden question.
"I'll have to find out if I'm right about who it is first. But I must confess, I'm still wondering what I did to deserve this."
"I've already had an assassin sent to me because our trading partner's wife thought we had an affair," Rahnirin noted with only a shrug, "It doesn't always make sense. Although I have to agree with you that it is odd that it is a royal assassin and that Mendis either warned you or threatened you. No matter what it is, this is clearly different from usual."
That it was so unusual was weirdly exactly what Sojan found so entertaining about it. After fifty years of being the main traders in medicines, iron ore, and furs, they had all dealt with an assassin more than once, but never had any of them been warned.
"I think I'll pay a little visit to the guilds and see if anyone knows anything. My gut tells me that in the end it will all come down to the Queen."
Arritit laughed cynically and slowly turned on her cup, then looked at Sojan with questioningly raised eyebrows.
"Where do you come up with that, smart guy?"
The urge to roll her eyes was strong.
"Because the king is obviously not behind the order. Besides, she's from the Midelia family, who were the king's main merchants before us, and are probably on the verge of ruin."
"Do you know something?"
Rahnirin looked past him to the window, confused.
"Only that the family had to provide an appropriate dowry for the king to accept the marriage. It is said he has not yet gotten over the death of his first wife."
Arritit and Rahnirin looked at each other in this way, which Sojan had learned to interpret as silent conversation at some point, so he turned his attention back to breakfast. His hope was that he would get information that supported his suspicions, or even better, that he would find out whether Lyran was really his murderous shadow or not. Actually, it would be a shame if it was, Sojan thought, but you couldn't have everything.
"Oddly enough, it would make sense."
His mother's tone said she knew more.
"What do you know?"
She shook her head slightly.
"When Asmolea came to marriageable age the family first tried to share in our contacts through marriage."
"You never told me that," Arritit commented in the same accusing tone Sojan would probably have struck.
"What for? You are adults and decide for yourselves. It would have been different if you knew each other. It was clear it was all about prestige and money for them."
Arritit's eye roll worried Sojan for a moment. It was rarely seen so violently on her.
"And now she's queen. What a twist."
"But then the Merchant's Guild clearly knows more. Ah, and before I leave for the day, I have something I want to talk to you about, dear sister."
Her eyes grew wide, showing the hint of panic.
"Dear Sister? The last time you called me that, I didn't get to use my magic for three weeks."
"Which wasn't the plan, and I was your personal servant the whole time for it."
"Yeah, that was funny," Arritit laughed off, "Alright: I'm all ears, and if things go wrong again, you're my servant for three months."
Sojan growled in annoyance. He hadn't thought of it that way, but he was sure she was in on his plan and would find it entertaining.
"All right, you two conspirators, I've got to get to work. The new trade agreements aren't going to develop on their own."
Rahnirin emptied her cup in one big gulp and poured herself another before disappearing. It was not hard to guess that she would go to the study prepared for her. If all went well, the stay would last no more than a week and they could be on their way back. If it were up to Sojan, sooner rather than later. Being so close to the priests of the Five made him nervous.
"All right, what do you have in mind, Sojan?"
Arritit leaned forward with an expectant smile.
"You know about the secrets here?"
He gestured around her with his arm, so it was clear he meant the guest quarters of the royal guests. She just nodded.
"I plan to give a little our shadow an experience he wouldn't soon forget."
Her widening grin told him she understood what he was getting at.
"So that's why you want to go to the Merchant's Guild?"
"It combines the practical with the entertaining in this case. I also want to go to the Hunter's Guild, see who's there and say hello. You know, the grand rounds."
"Tonight or tomorrow night?"
"I'll get everything ready. It's going to be a very fun evening."
Sojan had to grin as well at the thought of what they were planning. Yes, a fun evening it would definitely be, whether the assassin would make an attempt or not.
Does Demon Whitty have any interesting hobbies to share? Anything he finds amfusing?
" I hate you now. "

Oneus soulmate au reaction
Thank you for the request! Hope you like it.
Soulmates exist and there are many ways to find them, through thought sharing, not seeing colors, with many more and as for Oneus it’s seeing their soulmate in their dreams. For a few years now this one person kept appearing in their dreams, they have been through a lot together - going on roadtrips, having picnics, stargazing and much more but they don’t know each other’s names. And when waking up they remember everything but for some the face of the person is a little blurry. They are now yearning to meet their soulmates.
They had just arrived at the venue, where they were going to have a concert, they all got out of the car and walked to the doors. Just inside a girl was waiting for the group to arrive for she was in charge of showing them to their waiting room. Ravn was walking behind the others a bit tired because it was early in the morning and when he was sleeping he once again saw his soulmate but the second he woke up it’s like her face was a blur. Ravn wants nothing more than to meet his soulmate, he’s been waiting for so long. As soon as 8y9 saw all 6 members had walked in she introduced herself and told them to follow her. She opened the door to the waiting room holding it open for all of them. But as Ravn went through the door he lightly touched the girl's arm on accident and he felt a little spark. Ravn and 8y9 looked up and ended up just looking into each other’s eyes. As a feeling of being complete filled Ravn. He got a rush of seeing all the memories from his dreams but this time his soulmate’s face was clear, the girl in front of him was there with him. As he came out of the daze he immediately slung his arms around the girl in a hug and whispered in her ear: “Finally. I found you”.
It was exhausting for Seoho to see his soulmate in his dreams every night. Joking around with her, going on a road trip, singing for her, dreaming about going to sleep together but always waking up alone with no trace of his soulmate. After doing so many things in his dreams he just wishes to be able to do it for real, to hold her hand, cook crazy food with her and much more. So when he was out grocery shopping and saw a girl that seemed familiar he brushed it off as just his head messing with him. This kept happening, when he was out walking, when they were driving by in the van, when shopping and when eating Seoho kept seeing this one girl that always looked familiar but he didn’t know why. He always only saw her from behind or from the side, he never got a clear view of her face. The next time he ran into the girl was in a park when he was out walking with Keonhee after a long day of practice. But this time was different because this time, he saw her face. And it was the girl from his dreams. His soulmate. There was no mistaking it, her face was exactly the same. He told Keonhee that he would be back soon and then he ran up to the girl who was talking on the phone as she was walking. When Seoho stood right in front of her she looked up and was just as surprised as he was, her soulmate was standing right in front of her. She hung up the phone call with a quick: ‘I’ll call you back’ to look back at the man in front of her. Seoho just smiled and stretched his hand out and said: “Hi, I’m Seoho. Your soulmate, and you are?”
Leedo is a very passionate person and his biggest dream in life is to find his soulmate, get married, have children and live happily together. So for him it hurts to feel his soulmate so close but know that she is so far away. Every night when his soulmate joins him in his dreams he holds her close and when he wakes up he misses holding her in his arms. He sometimes tries to visualize the moment he will meet his soulmate for real, he wants to be calm and collected. But the moment he actually finds his soulmate he’s a stuttering mess that trips over his feet knocking his soulmate over and heart hammering so hard in his chest he can barely hear when the girl laughs and introduces herself. “H-hi, um, I uh I’m a Leehak no uh Leedo well Gunhak” “Hehe, hi. I’m (y/n)”
Keonhee was terrified of meeting his soulmate both in reality and in his dreams because he was afraid she wouldn’t like him. Afraid she would be disappointed with him for being an idol and not having ‘a real job’. But whenever he saw her in his dreams she was very nice and he couldn’t help but fall in love with her. He talked with the other members about his fear of meeting his soulmate. They always said that they are soulmates for a reason and no matter what they would love each other. He even told his soulmate in their dreamland that he was afraid of disappointing her and she would give him a hug and tell him that he could never disappoint her. The moment he saw her and realized who she was he ran the other way until he found Ravn and Leedo telling them that she was here. They told him to go talk with her but he said he can’t. Ravn had to find her and ask her to come with him so he could introduce her to her soulmate. When Keonhee saw her coming towards him with Ravn he tried running again but Leedo held him in place. “Don’t run,” Leedo told him. “Hello” was all he said shyly while glancing at the girl but not looking her in the eyes. He was happy, but very shy.
Hwanwoong would always dance with his soulmate no matter where they were in their dreamland. By the ocean, in a car, at a restaurant or on a field stargazing. He wanted to impress her with his skill and for each night she joined him in dancing he wanted more and more to dance for real with her. It didn’t matter if she was actually good at dancing or not, he would dance with her. He would be so excited about meeting his soulmate, whenever he saw someone the tiniest bit similar to his soulmate he would try to get closer to see if it was his soulmate. He would end up disappointed each time but he kept at it determined to find his soulmate as soon as possible. For the fifth time in an hour Hwanwoong ran away from the outside photoshoot after seeing a girl who was so similar to his soulmate. He ran until he caught up with her and ran in front of her to stop her from walking further. The girl stopped and looked at him confused but then realized who he was. Hwanwoong couldn’t help but smile and jump up and down with excitement. “Yes!!! YES YES YES!!!.... HI!” He screamed so loudly that people around them looked weirdly at him.
Xion is the maknae of the group, he felt like he wasn’t in a hurry to find his soulmate. Of course he wants to find her but he knew it would happen eventually. So he wouldn’t be like Hwanwoong, running around giving it his all to find her. But he wouldn’t not do anything, when out and about he would look around. He loved meeting his soulmate in their dreamland. He doesn’t talk much about his soulmate with the other members cause he feels like it’s private and something he should keep to just him and his soulmate. Also, Xion is afraid the others will tease him about the things he does with his soulmate. When he meets her he’s a bit surprised, nervous and happy. He was just saying whatever came to his head at the moment. “I’m Xion, you’re…. my soul-soulmate”

Fish Out of Water
Fish Out Of Water
“He could feel his senses dulling. His jet black hair which usually tickles the back of his neck, now felt like tiny pricks on his clammy skin. Everything felt muffled, like a bag over his head. This shouldn't feel as good as it does,”

I read your AU’s version of Henry’s ‘connection termination’ call and I wanted to know...how many years after Bennett’s death does it take place in?
I made a big long timeline of events that I will make into one separate post. You’d have to scroll back pretty far to find it.
Fazbear’s fright burns to the ground in early 2024, marking 41 years since Bennett’s death.
My three main Sonic OCs description
Age: undefined, around 15 y.o.
Species: varies with every reincarnations (I'll explain later)
Gender: varies because of reincarnations, but usually female (I'll explain later)
Basic info: She's a person cursed to be reborned until the end of the time itself. Sometimes she lives a normal life, sometimes she remembers some of her past lifes, which end up with her developing abilities (these abilities aren't random, there are sets of abilities based on something I can't say without spoilers.) And starting a chain of events.
Slightly more than basic info: (contains spoilers, so don't read unless you don't care about that you'll know most important part of the plot). Originally she was created by six powerful gods (well... Basically five, but the fifth had two souls so they counts as two) to maintain the peace across their realms and if the gods started fighting amongst themselves, she was supposed to stop it.
She was created with a bit of each of the gods and somehow came to have more power than intended. Gods didn't like it but the shrugged it off, since she was obedient. However, after few millennium she got into somewhat rebellious phase and disagreed with gods, which ended up in accidentally tearing the pieces of souls of the gods apart and nearly killing herself. But she managed to partially corrupt the gods' minds.
Each of her reincarnations carry one piece of soul from one of the gods, which awakens the corrupted minds of these gods.
Known reincarnations: Sheira the Wolf-Bat, Sheira the wolf, (there is one more, but this one is actually pretty important for plot and I refuse to write it here)
Sheira the Wolf-Bat:
Age: 15 y.o. (at the beginning of story)
Abilities: cryokinesis, Chaos energy control (she isn't good at that)
Current job: Agent of G.U.N
Alignment: In between of true and chaotic neutral
Team: Team Destructive (Speed)
Sheira the Wolf:
Age: 14 y.o. (but she can't age)
Abilities: Shapeshifting, (slight) Shadow manipulation, Chaos energy control
Current job: working for Eggman Empire
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Team: none, sometimes she pairs up with Metal Sonic or other robots
Age: 27 y.o.
Species: Chameleon and Lizard hybrid
Basic info: She is well known A rank agent for her abilities in both open combat and stealth. When she was very young, she came in the contact with Chaos Emerald and managed to preserve a bit of its power inside herself.
Abilities: very strong and flexible tail (capable to break even a concrete), unlike many reptile mobians she's able to survive in cold habitats (her body emitts warmth), her scales are capable of partially changing color
Current job: G.U.N agent
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Team: Team Destructive (The only one with braincell Strength)
Age: 25 y.o.
Basic info: He grew up in a tribe that didn't consider any form of violence as acceptable, which made it hard for him to grow up, because his nature was too fierce. Elders of the tribe simply told him not to come back after he got in a fight and seriously wounded the opponent. He's pretty cold towards strangers. (Also, everything about him screams GAY once you get to know him)
Abilities: Flight, his claws/talons can tear through metal
Current job: G.U.N agent
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Team: Team Destructive (Flight)

Freya: Time for plan G.
Elijah: Don’t you mean plan B?
Freya: No, we tried plan B a long time ago. I had to skip over plan C due to technical difficulties.
Rebekah: What about plan D?
Freya: Plan D was that desperate disguise attempt half an hour ago.
Klaus: What about plan E?
Freya: I’m hoping not to use it. Finn dies in plan E.
Kol: I like plan E.

I cant but think when Gary and Avacato first heard of Evil gary, they probably thought he was going to be at best a mustache twirling wannabe or a villain ala dr.doofinshmirtz at worst
Oh my God, like that's so true. If they had known going in that they were gonna meet an "Evil" Gary, I think this is sooo far off from what they would expect.
