Story: Who Wants to Live Forever?
'Verse: Lux
Colors: Tyrian Purple Saturation, Jade #12. Riches and honours are floating clouds/Look down, look up, the years flow on, twenty springs have passed
Supplies and Materials: saturation, mural, canvas (all except the last), brush (meritorious), acrylic, oils, stickers (In space, astronauts cannot cry because there is no gravity, so the tears can't flow.), feathers, fabric, modeling clay, pastels (my current gen + romance card B4 "holy place"), novelty beads ("Duty is heavier than a mountain, death is lighter than a feather." - Imperial Rescript to Soldiers and Sailors), glitter ("Evil is a point of view." – Anne Rice)
Word Count: 10,003
Rating: R
Characters: Simon, Michaela, Ruth
Warnings: Death, war, kidnapping, Michaela taking Simon's mind away with and without his consent, suicidal ideation, references to self-injury and attempted suicide, depiction of depression, flashbacks, Vikings, plague, very brief reference to adultery, familial death, fire, ableism and internalized ableism. I think that's all of them. If I missed any, please let me know.
Notes: Constructive criticism welcome, as always. Last Jade! This saturation took for fucking ever. I've been working on it for...I don't know, at least two months or so. Anyway, a few things to note: Simon uses many different names through this, but it's always him. He occasionally refers to another man named Simon, who was a good friend of his during his original life, sorry if it's confusing. He also perceives Michaela as male sometimes and female sometimes, but if a tall blond/e turns up, especially with long fingers, said blond/e is always Michaela. And if anyone (except Kat, who already knows) manages to guess Simon's original identity from this, I'll write them a drabble of their choice.

Supplies and Materials: Bichromatic, canvas
Word Count: 1,572
Rating: R
Warnings: scene of implied sexuality (it's all dialogue)
Notes: So I guess my theme lately is doomed young love. That's what I get for writing character backstories. Though, actually, these two meet again later and may not be doomed. I'm not exactly happy with the choice of architecture for Dylan; I picked it a while back for something different and artistic for him to do, but it seems too practical now, especially since I know neither of these characters will be doing what they studied for in a few years! So I may revisit this later with a different artistic field for Dylan to study...

When he touched her she felt like gold. )

P.S. Mods: It looks like I have two stories in this world still tagged as "unnamed robot story"; I've added the story tag for "robot rights," so there's no need for the other tag to exist anymore.

Notes: Angeline is one of the main characters of the novel I'm currently working on--one of the narrator's love interests (because if I'm going to write a typical YA love triangle, it's at least going to be a bisexual one). This takes place a year or two before the story.

The moment Angeline saw her new roommate, she knew her heart was lost. )

Notes: Doing some backstory work for this year's Nano. Apparently, this is how the main character's parents first started courting. Also, apparently it's a closer earth-analogue than I was planning, if they have the same classical mythology!

To the fairest. )

Mods, I suppose I should have a tag for my new story!

Wow just go look at the bad art. (They're very big, both about 1100x900, so be warned.)
