If you haven’t seen already, by the time this posts the annual pjo pride art should be up over at @deadangelos. Very very fun. Got some new faces: Piper and Shel have been added to the lineup. Apollo is also no longer human, but because the blog is PG13 we had to Tastefully Censor Him. Magnus is distressed yet again, as is tradition at this point. 3/4 of the annual canonical PJO Pride Art features Magnus being distressed. Will this year is sparing everyone of the socks and sandals outfit, though I absolutely intend to continue tormenting everyone with that. Piper i have become incapable of drawing without DIY jorts, because let’s be real that’s exactly her vibes. Also I can never draw Lavinia without giving her pride color hair because the opportunity is there and I find it fun. Also Alex has heelys because I Said So.
The art is a bit fashionably late into the month but in my defense: My sleep schedule is, as the kids say, bad. I’m typing this at about 5am. Whoops.
I was very strongly considering including Reyna in this year’s pride art and only didn’t because she’s technically only aspec-coded, not canonically ace, and I try to keep the lineup of the pride art to the canonically queer major characters in the series and their partners if applicable. This is entirely just cause there’s a good number of canonically queer PJO characters and I already have to draw 12 annually. Drawing like, half of CHB would hurt me. I do really wanna at least doodle some ace pride art of Reyna though cause I adore her and also of course getting to draw one of my pride flags :Dc
Misc blog things: Grace Event will be returning soon!!! I swear!!! The blog’s not dead!!! I have a really long complicated plot that i’ve had planned out for like a year that covers events literally into Tower Of Nero and beyond so, yknow. Not just gonna drop that ball. Might start posting more here, especially with some fun little tid-bits about OCs and stuff on the blog and probably just general ramblings and research I do for writing and design. If yall ever have any questions or want to know about the random minute obsessive detail I put into things, the inbox for this blog is always open. There are also multiple mods so you may hear some input from them sometimes as well.
Mun Updates: Starting therapy tomorrow, very very cool. Also been figuring out how to use Adobe Premire and made a couple animatics and other silly videos. And bought Clip Studio Paint, so I will probably be messing around with that a ton. I am so very very tempted to make a Deadangelos animatic or two. Very tempted. insert eyes emoji here.
Mazu’s Realm is nothing like she’d expected. But, hey, they’ve got guard dog-dragons, and they didn’t eat her, which is an absolute win! Furthermore, Rory didi is wonderful, and Tida just gets her. Leaving them both might be harder than expected...
After I handed in my final piece of coursework for my degree in creative and professional writing in May, I was hit with the worst writer’s block I’ve ever had. But now I’m back in my happy place. I’m writing again. I hope you’re all doing well! Take care of yourselves 💙
i had a dream where ghosts were real but not only was their true form a sheet, they were sheets. if you were a bad person when you died you became the mattress cover sheet. it was the linen industry's biggest scandal
i do really have to stop reading blogs that annoy me hdksjsjs like I’m not actively seeking out blogs with content that genuinely upsets me or is offensive, but people whose personalities I just...do not vibe with at all and then I read post after post getting increasingly annoyed. why do I do that?
So I personally don’t participate in any Norse Pagan practices.. but the other day my roommate and I were up early and chose to get Dunkin Donuts (something we literally never do) and ordered half a dozen. We called in to let them know which ones we wanted specifically cause it didn’t let us pick specifics. The girl there takes the info down and we disconnect.. the donuts get ordered and it’s nothing we wanted so we message the delivery service who not only reorders for us but gives a $5 credit. We call back in and the same girl is working and is like “OMG no I had it right here!” And so the proper one gets sent.
I then see a red headed man circling the dining room requesting donuts and I’m like ????? I don’t know you can you please give me some information??? To which he just laughs. So I ask for a proper sign and ended up going on tiktok... first video says the God Loki is holding up your move (which were in the process of changing houses) and is looking for donuts. The comments all saying they’ve been offering him some this week. When I look up he’s just smiling at me and asks for a candle and a donut.
Anyways, that’s about the time the trickster god Loki ordered himself donuts and gave us $5 for the inconvenience
