Songs of the Bards

I have about 8 different AUs in my head solely for Kamen Rider W and I don’t know what to do about it.

Hufflepuff’s symbol is a badger, which is fluffy, adorable, unassuming, and will rip your face off if you threaten something it cares about, which sums the House up quite neatly.

One of the things I am consistently good at is making tragic AUs that definitely Do Not need to be made.

Okay so
I love Kamen Rider W.
I also love Gokusen.
Phillip as Sawada Shin, Shoutarou in Yankumi’s place as the fired up new math teacher who beats some sense into teaches his students the power of being a Good Person and a Good Delinquent at the same time.
Pretend this unholy combination never happened.

Or, get ready for tomorrow when I have more time and I’ll draw some of the other characters, like Nurse Akiko and her doting stay-at-home-with-the-baby husband Terui Ryu, or the ace cop/lawyer fellow Suda Kirihiko, or the coldly attractive new english teacher Saeko!
Yeah.
I’m sorry.
I’m not sorry.

Ughhhhh I’m so dumb
I ate breakfast today, because I mean, why not, I was up early enough for once
And somehow I completely managed to forget that eating breakfast has never sat well with me even once in my life.
I feel so sick now noooooo…. ;-;
Should’ve just waited for lunch like usual it would be better than this horrible roiling in my tummy.
Like, calm down buddy! I only fed you! Food is a good thing! Kickstart your metabolism and all that!!!!
guhhhhhh

Okay so regarding the middleschooler detectives KR.W comic (henceforth to be known as “Half-Boiled Investigations”), what should I do color wise? So far I’m just giving every page a grey wash with watercolors for general shading and depth and the like (see nearly finished page above), but I’ve toyed with painting it in with color in photoshop after some of the edits (cleaning the lines, removing the pencil outlines of the page, etc) get done.
If I keep everything just in grey wash I can finish and release these thirteen pages of the intro a lot faster since I only have two more to wash and then edit, and adding color would end up taking a LOT more time. However, color is definitely cool, so I was planning on making colored standalone images for between chapters anyway.
So, opinions? Color on every page, or no color but with colorful chapter/case dividers?

I think one of the things I miss most about being in college is that on the sad days I don’t have a kitty to snuggle anymore.

Fantasy is silver and scarlet, indigo and azure, obsidian veined with gold and lapis lazuli. Reality is plywood and plastic, done up in mud brown and olive drab. Fantasy tastes of habaneros and honey, cinnamon and cloves, rare red meat and wines as sweet as summer. Reality is beans and tofu, and ashes at the end. Reality is the strip malls of Burbank, the smokestacks of Cleveland, a parking garage in Newark. Fantasy is the towers of Minas Tirith, the ancient stones of Gormenghast, the halls of Camelot. Fantasy flies on the wings of Icarus, reality on Southwest Airlines. Why do our dreams become so much smaller when they finally come true?

We read fantasy to find the colors again, I think. To taste strong spices and hear the songs the sirens sang. There is something old and true in fantasy that speaks to something deep within us, to the child who dreamt that one day he would hunt the forests of the night, and feast beneath the hollow hills, and find a love to last forever somewhere south of Oz and north of Shangri-La.

They can keep their heaven. When I die, I’d sooner go to Middle-Earth.

This is one of the most beautiful quotes I think I have ever read. I love it, and I will treasure it for my entire life.
