More character designs...

World-building is rather fun. Plus, I get to play with my scanner and image editor some more. These are for the [livejournal.com profile] theclockworkdog fiction, which might be a comic book eventually. Draft animals and figure drawing ) Obviously I need to work on drawing guns. I should probably actually get my shotgun out of the closet for a model, but I'm being lazy and it's not the right kind of gun...

Meeting the Stormbringer...

for [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo

Wow. This went fast. Stormbringer came out more Wodehousian aunt than I expected.

Getting ready to meet Lord Stormbringer...

For [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo Iros and Turnspit get ready for the interview with Stormbringer.

Early tonight, because I've got sniffles, a headache, and feel like someone has thumped me in the kidneys. I'm going to bed early, and hope that I won't have to call in sick to work in the morning.

Preparing for the interview (585 words) )

The levy assembles.

for [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo. This is totally not what I meant to write tonight, but I do need to explain about how Turnspit got his clockwork.

Aughisky think *differently*

AKA 'check your assumptions at the door'

For [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo. This bit got away from me, and went off in weird directions. I think it works. Set before yesterday's bit.

Nov 25 mini-nano

for [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo

Because of a flight delay and the airport shuttle *never* arriving (I had to take a cab home, and oh boy I'd better get reimbursed for it), I'm a tiny bit late getting this up. Also, I jumped ahead in time more than a bit. There are at least five scenes between this one and yesterday's.

Turnspit's new clothes

For [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo -- Turnspit gets new clothes, with hints about how aughisky culture isn't gendered, it is ranked.

For [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo

ha! Actual sex, instead of just implied sex. From Iros' POV no less. It's embarassing how much I write when I'm doing a sex scene. I don't think this advances the plot much, though I think there are some good character/world-building bits in here.

For [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo. It's surprisingly hard to write someone whose worldview doesn't include the *concept* of prayer. Or familial ties. Or personal literacy.

Becoming a Dog

For [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo.

Huh. I thought they were going to get to a celebratory drink tonight. Apparently not. Aughisky rituals are apparently a lot less wordy then I thought, though full of symbolic actions.

Riding behind Iros...

previous

Once he was on the tall horse, his hands about the Rider's waist, and the numbing drink soaking through his body until nothing hurt, not even the distant burning that were his torn feet, Turnspit drifted. It was a crisp day, and the horse moved as soft as milk. It was easy to drowse against Iros' long back.

They had been traveling quite some time... )
