Title: Don’t Let the Hammer Fool You
Fandom: Magelight Chronicles
Characters: Emoric
Rating: G ( L0 N0 S0 V0 D0 )
Warnings: None
Notes: Ladles and jellyspoons, another face I haven’t worked with in a Long Ass Time, Emoric, who is not, in fact, a smith, but can’t pass up the occasional pose with a big hammer. I swear it’s just because he’s short. Emoric’s more into cast bronze. Makes an inordinate number of gears and then assembles them into bizarre steam-powered contraptions and puzzleboxes. He is also, in most parts of the story he appears in, a ghost and thus stuck talking to the necromancer in the party.

Title: On the Subject of [Redacted]
Fandom: Vexation of Spirit (Shadow Unit/Magelight Chronicles)
Characters: Chaz Villette , Noctis , Hafidha Gates
Rating: G ( L0 N0 S0 V0 D0 )
Warnings: None
Notes: Here’s me still fiddling while Rome burns. Also, technically, probably spoilers. Meh. The conversation happens, but you’ll have to wait to find out what it’s about.

Title: His Excellency and Her Asskicking
Fandom: Magelight Chronicles
Characters: Artemisia , Noctis
Rating: G ( L0 N0 S0 V0 D0 )
Warnings: An ankle. Gasp.
Notes: While the rest of my portfolio burns down around my ears, have a blast from the past, done up all shiny new. Presenting the Avernine Envoy and his secretarial golem, Artemisia. Discerning Vexation readers may recognise one of these individuals. Those who appreciated last year’s Christmas wallpapers may recognise the other.

Title: The Artemeese
Fandom: Forgotten Realms, Magelight Chronicles, Dragon Age
Characters: Artemis Entreri , Artemisia , Artemis Hawke
Rating: G- ( L0 N1 S0 V0 D0 )
Warnings: One assassin in slightly less than an entire shirt, less cleavage than you’d see on the evening news
Notes: A wallpaper for @Maverik, my badass co-author, featuring Artemis Entreri, Artemisia, and Artemis Hawke! You will notice a distinct lack of the goddess, here, because neither of us have written her… to my knowledge. On second thought, there may be an extended version of this, next year, with EVEN MORE Artemeese.

Title: You Shall Not Pass
Fandom: Magelight
Characters: Solaris , Icefeather
Rating: G (L0 N0 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: A huge sword and some magic
Notes: Solaris and Ice being vaguely threatening and way too amused with themselves. Yeah, this is crap. I know. I also know it’s the third, and I haven’t started an advent calendar, yet. On both counts, I cite that I’ve been too sick to get out of bed for a couple of days. Next up: The part where I see if I can catch up on that ‘one image a day until Christmas’ thing…

Title: Girls’ Night Out
Fandom: Magelight/Nicoverse crackover
Characters: Solaris , Belphegor
Rating: T (L0 N2 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: Half-naked ladies
Notes: Yes, it’s Dark’s birthday. Yes, this is Frost’s birthday present. Sorry, guys, I’ve committed a birthday swap! Solaris and Belphegor enjoying a girls’ night out, at the temple. Whose temple? I’ll leave that to your imagination.

Title: Sushi Party
Fandom: Magelight
Characters: Emoric , Dark , Durand
Rating: Rating: R (L0 N3 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: Nude dudes
Notes: I don’t even know. This started out as just Dark lounging on a sofa, and then Durand got involved, and then all hell broke loose. For once in the history of ever, the epic-level WTF is not Emoric’s fault. (And Dark’s just like ‘How the fuck did I let you talk me into this…? I can’t reach my coffee.’)

Title: Just for One Day
Fandom: Magelight
Characters: Ice , Frost , Dark
Rating: Rating: G (L0 N0 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: None
Notes: No comment. Really.

Ok, I lied. I think the faces make this one. Dark and his ‘they love us!’/’we’ll miss you all!’ Ice is like ‘stop waving and move before they touch me :|’ And Frost, with his ‘king of the world and trying desperately not to laugh.’

It’s a throwaway, really. I was sleeping on my desk for half of this.

Title: Class Distinctions
Fandom: Magelight
Characters: Durand , Frost
Rating: Rating: R (L0 N3 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: Nude dudes
Notes: So, I ended up sticking with the title this had in my working folder, which looks a little weird, but I just had this moment, looking at Durand and Frost, together, and comparing to popular depictions of labourers and aristocrats of the last few centuries. Durand, the stonemason, who is burly, tanned, hairy, and scarred (though I think he’s facing the wrong way for the enormous scar on his face to show) beside Frost, fae playboy of one of the royal houses, who is lithe, pale, almost hairless, and unmarked. I have no idea why this time, that’s what stood out, but it did.

Title: Tamiel & Galharda
Fandom: Magelight
Characters: Tamiel , Galharda
Rating:Rating: <span style=T" src="https://penbrydd.groundline.net/wp-content/luxintenebris/rating/PG13.jpg" width="32px" /> (L0 N2 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: A demoness with half a shirt, showing a lot of leg.
Notes: So, this is one of those things that goes a little better if you’ve got context. There is a demon/fallen angel called Verrier, who is "Prince of Principalities, and tempts men against the vow of obedience, and makes the neck stiff and hard as iron, and incapable to stoop under the yoke of obedience." (Hell’s Hierarchy, 1612) In constructing Magelight, we built Verrier’s family as imperial anarchists — they’ll help you overthrow, as long as you keep overthrowing what they want you to, and don’t turn against them. They spread their empire of rioters to wherever they can find an unstable situation to exploit. Revolution? The House of Verrier was there. More on these two below the cut.
