Title: Eleventh Anniversary Revamp, take one
Fandom: Sky
Characters: Arkady
Rating: G ( L0 N0 S0 V0 D0 )
Warnings: None
Notes: So, once upon a time I wrote a book, and it wasn't a very good book, so we're not gonna talk about the book. But, 3/4 of the people who actually voted in this month's poll decided that next month's Mondays should be characters from that book. Did that many of you even read it? I'm so sorry…

So, I'm trying to straighten out some poor decisions I made when I built these characters the first time, so they'll actually look good for a change. Or at least not as bad as they did about a billion years ago. Okay, okay, it's only about eleven. Maybe twelve. No postwork, because this is just a test, so expect some minor glitches.

First up, Ebony Arkady, drummer in our cranky protagonist's band. Arkady's often mistaken for the keyboardist's brother, and he likes it that way. They're the pretty ones, and he'll look pretty and harmless, as long as you don't give him any incentive to open his mouth.

Title: Glass: Scrap #1
Fandom: Viridian Legacy: Glass
Characters: Sin, Severen, Arkady
Rating: T (L1 N0 S0 V1 D2)
Warnings: suicidal ideation, referenced past self-harm, panicked late-night phone calls (of the sort we've all gotten), strong suggestions of future mind-control, and beer as a first choice for self-medication.
Notes: No title. I don't even know. I don't even think this is done, but I kind of can't sleep, so I rolled over and wrote this. I can barely read the damn screen. Sebastian demands to be boring and have a pleasant upper-middle class existence, when he's Sebastian. Unfortunately, reality occasionally refuses to comply, and Arkady is… well, Arkady.

Title: Boots First
Fandom: Viridian Legacy
Characters: Betty , Arkady
Rating: G- (L0 N1 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: Shirtless dude. Bad lighting.
Notes: Again with the hotels. I'm really just fucking around trying to make something work. There's some shaders I never use that I wanted to get a grip on, also, indoor lighting, which… less bad, but still pretty terrible. Anyway, the conversation going on here is, for some reason, 'Boots first, then corset'. (Which I'm sure we all had, at some point.)

Title: (Belated) Valentine Cards!
Fandom: Viridian Legacy: Glass
Characters: Arkady , Betty
Rating: G- (L0 N1 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: Shirtless dude, abuse of sepia tone
Notes: Time and I have just not been on friendly terms, these last few weeks. I got distracted and then I broke my computer. So, use these next year! Also consider this a shout out to all the people who complain I never do any het. The base image is included, in case you have a super awesome background you want to stick it on, but if you do? Let me know, because that would be wicked awesome!

Title: Reflection
Fandom: Viridian Legacy: Glass
Characters: Baron , Arkady
Rating: T (L2 N0 S0 V0 D1)
Warnings: Awkward conversation about a trans girl, memories of mind-altering suggestions
Notes: Arkady's got a new girlfriend. (Evan, stoppit. This never ends well.) Baron's just as concerned as anyone who knows him should be, for the same reasons as always, just with a different trigger. Arkady sets him straight.

[Master Post – Glass]
Title: One Drop of Wine
Fandom: Viridian Legacy: Glass
Characters: Baron , Arkady , Severen , Betty , Lir
Rating: T (L2 N0 S0 V1 D1)
Warnings: So. Much. Vomit.
Notes:I'm not done writing this, but I needed to sketch it out before I lost it. Baron's not allowed to drink before he gets on a plane. Some of you know where this came from…

[Master Post – Glass]
Title: Shards
Fandom: Viridian Legacy
Characters: Arkady, Some girl, Mr. Newkirk
Rating: M (L1 N3 S3 V0 D0)
Warnings: Dubious consent, teenagers screwing around
Notes: I'm working on Arkady's damage. He just doesn't have the force of personality to do any number of things without Betty to back him up, partly because everyone he knows is afraid of her, but no one ever takes him seriously, because he's about as effective in a fight as a wet sock. And that affects his social packaging, so there's all kinds of things he can get away with, because he's just weird, but anything that crosses a small handful of lines will get him turned into lunchmeat the instant Betty's not looking.

Title: Heaven and Nowhere #2/2
Fandom: RAPTURE/Viridian Legacy
Characters: Jordan, Betty, Arkady
Rating:G- (L0 N1 S0 V0 D0)Β 
Warnings: Some skin. Not a whole lot. Experimental haberdashery.
Notes: So, this hat came into my possession. It's… better. It's at least a little less bad. Keep throwing hats, and I'll keep rendering the middle of this scene, until we hit a hat DJay's happy with. *laughs* Anyway, it's close enough for me to fill in the blanks in the back. Yeah, there's some weird shit going on with one particular shadow that's the same colour as a shard of background. I could have fixed it in post, but I like the illusion of Jordan with a fistful of broken sky. …broken Sky, maybe, with those two… (For those of you who don't spend much time in my archive, click on the image to make it bigger.)
