yeah this really shows your strength with designing individuals. the initial fusions are still strong enough to be their own design but when theyre all together it just feels so bland and generic comparatively? from someone else i’d like it but from
you it just shows how great your staring point is, you know?
POLKS ;u; thank you I appreciate that!! and yeah, I agree, I like the middle three, but past that it just gets really bland with distinct features canceling eachother out.
I’ve seen it done with three very similar designs, but that just seems like it’d end up even MORE boring (and in one particular instance, kinda weirdly racist???? lmao)
Oh my god your Nathaniel/Velanna art. *Swoons*. While I prefer to ship Nate with my elf mage f!Warden OC and Zevran in a polyamorous threesome of delight and femdom (drafting fic for them right now), and Velanna with Shianni because angry elves FTW, wow your Nathaniel/Velanna is PERFECTION AAAH HELP. Do you happen to know if your commissions will reopen in the near future? If you're not sure, or they won't, that's okay too! :) I will just sit here and weep happy tears about sub!Nate everything.
Well thank you so much!! I’m glad you like my stuff :D I’ve been dragging my feet something awful about reopening— I’ve got a couple of prior commitments to take care of, but after that I’d say it’s about time I did so! I’m gonna give you a rough estimate and say end of February/beginning of March. I’ll be apartment-hunting in another state around then, and after that it should be smooth sailing.
And thank you for your interest, I really appreciate it!
AAaahhhh is it possible to be horny and heartbroken at the same time? Because this is super hot (it makes my day so much when you draw N/V smut!!) but their poor faces make me want to cry ;___;
EMOTIONPORN IS BASICALLY WHAT I DO
thank you friend!!!! and yeah thinking about them makes my heart clench up something awful and i’ve just gotta VENT ALL MY FEELINGS…. WITH NUDITY. Riss can tell you that sometimes we’ll just be chilling and then I’ll flop over in agony because I thought about Nathaniel and Velanna oh noooo
Notes: I poured all of my feelings about Carver into this chapter, especially over the things the game never addressed, so expect pain ahead. I also did some playing and tweaking with in-game events. I apologize, once again, that this chapter was so long coming. My mental health and my work schedule joined forces against me, but this chapter is extra long so I hope that makes up for it a little. My continuing thanks to serenity-fails not only for beta-ing for me but also for talking out all the story snags with me and just being a constant encouragement. The credit for calling him “Garrett Pisspants Hawke” goes entirely to her, I might add.
Chapter Summary: At last, the group is ready to venture into the Deep Roads, but the journey is not going to be easy and road blocks abound. Meanwhile Velanna seems especially twitchy, but may finally be ready to give some answers. General Summary: Anders wasn’t the only mage to join the Wardens in Amaranthine. What if Justice had chosen a very different host? And what if a very different revolution had shaken the foundations of Kirkwall? When Hawke and company seek out an expert on the Deep Roads, they meet a cantankerous elf woman named Velanna with a mysterious past and a passion for elves’ rights. None of them could imagine the meeting might change their world forever. Pairings: (eventually) M!Hawke/Fenris, Nathaniel/Velanna, Aveline/Donnic, a touch of Carver/Merrill Warnings: Description of blood and violence. Also, so much angst.
I write/think a lot about my warden and what she did after the Blight ended and I was writing the other day and didn't realize until today that there is Nathaniel/Valenna in it and (now that I think about it) in most of my headcanons as well. I don't really know what happened but you made me start subconsciously shipping them and it's actually really wonderful.
THAT’S SO AWESOME I am so glad to hear that :’)))
It seems like Velanna is slowly building a bigger fanbase than she had a year or so ago when I first played Awakening and it was basically impossible to search her name without finding someone calling her a bitch, and with that comes more people getting into my OTP!! TRULY WE ARE #BLESSED
