YOU’RE THE BEST!! I adore His Dark Materials. Lyra was one of my top 3 female characters growing up.
At first, I would have chosen something feline for Sherlock, but I think that actually he’s a bit more of a crow. They’re amazingly intelligent, and they really do enjoy being social, but humans don’t really recognize that and they’re stigmatized. And they tend to mate for life.
John’s a bit trickier, but I’d say he’s a Dhole (Indian wild dog). They actually get on pretty well with other predators (like leopards. Like Sherlock? They’re both definitely predatory animals). They’re even more social than wolves when it comes to their own species, but are really shy around humans. They aren’t as obviously dominant/submissive as wolves, either. I couldn’t find out much about whether they mate for life or not, but they do form packs with many more males than females…
Remember that old rhyme “red on yellow kill a fellow; red on black, friend of Jack?” Maybe not. But it’s about coral snakes (poisonous) vs king snakes (safe), two species that look almost identical to most people but have a world of difference in terms of deadliness. Here’s a quote from Nat Geo: “A bite from the notoriously venomous eastern coral snake at first seems anticlimactic. There is little or no pain or swelling at the site of the bite, and other symptoms can be delayed for 12 hours. However, if untreated by antivenin, the neurotoxin begins to disrupt the connections between the brain and the muscles, causing slurred speech, double vision, and muscular paralysis, eventually ending in respiratory or cardiac failure.” Unlike most venomous snakes, they also tend to hold onto their victims while biting.
Let me know if you want me to do any of the others :)
I drew the lineart for this almost a year ago to the day. The reason I picked that for the title is that one day she’ll be taking up the mantle of Sailor Moon/Queen, right? That’s a whole lotta responsibility right thar.
I was mostly just mucking around with the background and it was both frustrating and fun at the same time. Not entirely sold on it but my eyes are bleeding from looking at all the colours for so long sooo…
Imagine if Sirius could have raised Harry and when he sent a howler to him in his second year for driving the car to school.
"I’M NOT EVEN MAD, I’M ACTUALLY IMPRESSED. MERLIN’S BEARD I’M PROUD."
And Remus in the background “SIRIUS NO.”
What if there are actually multiple souls in your body but you’re the most powerful one so you have control over your body and the voices you hear in your head are just the weaker souls talking to you.
and maybe people with schizophrenia don’t have an assertive soul so all of the souls are fighting to take over
both of you write a book together
In order to become the supreme adult, you must perform the seven wonders:
- Public speaking
- Not being afraid of teenagers
- Calling the doctor yourself
- Arguing without crying
- Having a normal sleep pattern
- Having an answer to the question ‘what do you want to do with your life?’
I will never make it.
