It had my 3dsxl, my headphones, my phone cord, my pencil bag (with all of my favorite supplies in it) and my sketchbook that only had 20 pages left to fill. I’m pretty bummed about it, especially about losing more than 70 pages of art and ~5 commissions i hadnt had the chance to scan yet. BUMMERRRRRR
If you’re in north hollywood and stole my orange & blue hibiscus-patterned backpack please at least return the sketchbook to the taco bell at vanowen & coldwater canyon! It would mean a lot to me especially since i make ends meet by selling digital copies of my sketchbooks. I don’t have enough for a reward, sorry.
Any of my followers get the pre-sequel yet?
me: *eating microwaved ramen noodles and watching kitchen nightmares* cannot believe this asshole didnt use fresh chicken in his paella, unbelievable
ALSO ANOTHER CAUSE SCARLET IS FLY AS WELL. How does Scarlet believing in a different god and religion entirely affect her relationship as a servant to a god-king? IS IT HILARIOUSLY AWKWARD? DANGEROUS? Do they pretend it doesn't exist and not speak of it. DO TELL
YAY I GOT TWO YAYYY
The two of them honestly rarely talk about it, but it’s not a secret. The God-King KNOWS she believes in the Storm God, and he finds it pretty frustrating and annoying because he’s a major manchild so “excuse me I’m right here, look at me, look I can make a muscle, see how godly I am, watch me do a cannonball, I’m over here, you’re not looking”. When he’s not being a bit frustrated by it, he mocks and undermines her ceaselessly and calls the Storm God the fish god of the sea or the snowy winter lord or whatever strikes his fancy at that moment.
This wasn’t always the case, however, and for a while it was a secret. While he has mellowed somewhat over the years, the God-King used to be really intense and definitely earned his title as the destroyer. This was when she first started working for him as a scullery maid, and the head maid at the time (someone called Mother) recognized that she was a Northerner (she looks like one, it is immediately apparent to the average person) and told her to keep her mouth shut about it and it wouldn’t be a problem. He took human sacrifice at that time, and so honestly, if he has discovered it back in his more intense phase, he probably would have instantly demanded that the heretic be sacrificed (or done it himself). He couldn’t tell the difference between humans very well at the time, so he couldn’t recognize that she was different in any way other than she had redder hair than the rest of the identical-to-him maids.
By the time he discovered it, they were already “friends” (He was used to her? She had become the new Mother by that time and had taken over his personal day-to-day care), and he just noticed one day that she didn’t have a shrine to him in her bedroom, and she was like “yeah, about that…”
So your character Arturo Orev is SUPER FINE OH MY GOSH is he a forensic botanist because that is so cool (that and forensic entomology are two of my favorite areas of forensic sciences) but like OLD SCHOOL VICTORIAN FORENSIC BOTANIST TELL US MORE ABOUT HIS WORLD AND LIFE.
YAY ARTURO okay he is basically just a big nerd with no friends. He has this big manor house (because he’s a minor aristocrat) but NGL like 50% of the space is nothing but plants and lab stuff. (Except this downstairs area where he leases it out to boarders). His main interest is in his plants, and his job is essentially just a happy extension of that to him.
It’s not quite a true Victorian setting, kinda steampunky, and so yes he is basically and OLD TIMEY forensic botanist but with some shades of alchemy in there. He primarily works on homicides, so imagine him, like, flipping down a thousand lenses on a stupid microscope to look at some moss to tell some cops that the body was moved and it was originally on the north side of the river or whatever. However, he also suffers from a rare illness that is stigmatized because it is known to cause hallucinations. He keeps it a secret from literally every single person he knows, and uses extracts from plants that he grows to self-medicate with reasonably successful results. (this is pretty much why he is a friendless loser haha)
In his storyline, he is working cases as usual when it is discovered that a bunch of previously unlinked murders are actually part of a series, perpetrated by one person in a Jack the Ripper-esque campaign of bloodshed. More shockingly, these begin to more closely match the way that his parents died many years before, and things begin to happen in his home, leading him to believe that he may be the next target of the killer. However, because of his illness being aggravated by the stress of the situation, it becomes increasingly difficult for him to distinguish reality from his paranoid hallucination and it sucks. It eventually comes to light that the reclusive boarder living in his downstairs suite may be more than meets the eye, but the boarder somehow gets ahead of them and flees before they come for him. Arturo and his cop buddies race against time trying to track down the boarder before it is too late *dramatic flourish*
Also I am glad you think he’s a fine piece o’ man candy because like honestly I just wanted him to be the ambiguously foreign prettyboy of the setting ahaha
