WHERE TO START.

1. I love everything about this so deeply and whole-heartedly that my joy is mixed with pain. Ana: spot-on. And as usual I'm sorry Raph's mom won't be around later on, because: a) she's great; b) somehow I suspect she'd be a mitigating influence in the assorted trainwrecks to come.

2. Confession: I did not previously know about this book, and had to look it up. Liking the portraits though!

3. This scene.

Trust me when I say more whacky au adventures with still alive!Minerva and her family in law shall be forthcoming. I have a feeling that she and Ana would sort of start to enjoy eachother's company to the extent that it allows them space to unleash all sorts of repressed rage stemming from their marriages. ... at one another.

It is so, so good! I hadn't heard about it till I picked it up in an Oxford charity shop at the weekend and it has been true love since.

As far as unresolved relationships go, these two wreck meeee.

.... and speaking of, I needed to get some young GoT Han / Septimus out of my system.

Image

Septimus at the height of his 'seducing tutors' phase.


Image

Young Johann Stark making the world crumble to its knees. And I know that Han didn't take on the Stark hairstyle, but I couldn't resist seeing what it looked like. Now complete with Northern stubble~!

THAT. HAIR. omg septimus' luscious locks are out of control.

In other news, I had not intended to give Han long hair but now I'm kind of intrigued and may need to draw it, if only to get it out of my system.

It's a guilty pleasure, but I'll be honest, it's a lot of fun. Also, drawing long hair is surprisingly therapeutic??
I feel that despite his generally good manual dexterity, Septimus was always pretty terrible at braids and co. Dear Johann probably had to endure quite a lot of their youth trying to fix some very bad plaits.

I'd obviously be super non-plussed if you drew Han like this. You know, totally apathetic. Utterly uninterested. Excuse me, I'll be over here flailing a little.

'I'm sorry, I don't remember allowing King's Landing trash to enter my office.'
'Don't be like that.'
'Traitor to the North.'
'Septimus, it's a trim.'
'It's a travesty.'

So apparently Han cuts his hair in King's Landing. I imagine the shock of it hit Septimus hard.

"I-- Wh-- Look, it's just a haircut. It'll grow back."

I cannot overstate how happy this makes me.

But will his trust ever grow back for you Han, that's the question.

Because the boys would cause the Dothraki some consternation.

"Put that sword away, you're going to hurt someone. Probably, judging from prior experience, yourself."

Those poor Dothraki never stood a chance.

Haha, poor both of them to be honest. I feel like this AU left them in even worse states.

And clearly since I am on a bit of a Jet splurge, here I am trying to remember how to draw after 2 months of nada.

"Stay BACK, damn you!" The ringing clash of steel.

A thin line of blood welled along his adversary's pale brow and cheek, having barely missed the eye. Septimus drew back and set a hand to it, gingerly, though he did not lower his sword. His fingers came away stained with red, and as Han watched, the look on his face went from incredulity to an icy rage.
