Good lord. I uploaded my two paltry drabbles to AO3 last night and by the time I got up I had a crapload of kudos. A small crapload, but unexpected. I should write more of them.

getting the car inspected

I still haven't managed to do any more Inktober sketches, in spite of some excellent prompts, but here's a doodle of a young woman who was in the waiting room at the mechanic's where I went to get my car inspected.

She was perched on one of those molded-plastic chairs that have depressions for your bottom and your back. She had her legs drawn up to her chest and was concentrated fixedly on her phone. She was pretty, but nervous seeming, someone I'd expect to express themselves in waves of rapid speech.

She was having a Prius fixed. Unrelated to whatever its troubles were, it was missing its rear hubcaps. Before it had been missing one, but now it was missing both. "Oh well--now it's symmetrical," the woman said.

One of the mechanics chatted with her as she was paying, from which he (and I) learned that she'd moved to this area from California, which she'd left because of the--what do you guess? Guess anything! I was thinking she'd say wildfires. (Answer is below the picture.)

at the service station

She said traffic. Which I know is bad, based on what friends have told me. But so bad that you move state? And not just to a different state, but 3,000 miles away? There's more to this story than meets the eye. Or ear. It's none of my business, but I do wonder.

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Frank Iero

Content Notes/Warnings: N/A

Medium: Digital art

Artist Website/Gallery: Deviant Art

Why this piece is awesome: LeATHERMOUTH, aside from being one of the gazillion bands Frank is involved in, is somewhat notorious for having a casual yet v. dark aesthetic. I mean, the promo photos are something else.

Zaki-mizer certainly tips a hat to Frank's look (white t-shirt and pants) while also managing to capture the vibrancy and aggression that makes up a LM experience. Although we don't see Frank's face, it's easy to figure out that he's giving it his all, even to the point of be covered with neon pink blood. It might look like a simple piece, but, the longer you study it, the more it seems to come to live.

Didn't draw much last week.

For the last week of Inkobter I'm hoping to draw all this week and instead of being inspired by whatever is on my mind or by the world, I am going to try to use prompts from this WITCHY EDITION TUMBLR. Wish me luck!

Fandoms: SGA and Captain America
Characters/Pairings: Teyla Emmagan, teenage Rodney McKay/John Sheppard, Ronon Dex, Bucky Barnes
Content Notes: I decided to try inking watercolour techniques rather than pencil sketches this week, using black watercolour paint as ink (and white watercolour paint in the Ronon one because I suck at leaving blank paper as my white areas). The three SGA ones were also done for the "Supernatural" prompt at the [community profile] whatif_au  comm, and the Bucky one was inspired by a pic of a raven on tumblr. That one I inked with a brush, as I hadn't tried that before - the SGA ones were inked with markers. So, fun to test out some new techniques, but I suck at doing smaller, more manageable works - they always get away on me - however I managed four pieces this past week.

DEAR HARRIETTE: I am about to get married, and my fiancé and I have come to an impasse over something that I don’t think is such a big deal. I grew up in a household where everybody had chores, but we also had a housekeeper who came once a week to do heavy cleaning. It was so helpful having Mrs. Lancaster with us. She became part of the family. I want the same thing for my new home. Of course, both of us should do chores, but I believe having extra help will ensure we keep everything organized and clean. My husband thinks this is excessive and a waste of money. He grew up in a household where no extra help was ever there. They couldn’t afford it. We can. Plus, I work 80 hours a week usually. I need the help. How can I get my fiancé to see that? -- Clean Up, Rochester, New York

This is one of many value-driven conversations you must have with your fiancé to determine whether the two of you can compromise when needed to build your life together. While it may sound clichéd, it is the little things in a marriage that help to make your bond stronger or erode it entirely.

Since your husband-to-be does not see the need for a housekeeper, a compromise might be to have someone come in once a month in the beginning. Suggest this as an acknowledgment that you know he doesn’t see eye to eye with you on this point but that you know you need help in order to keep your home in the manner you believe appropriate.

Hi everybody,
I managed to catch a gastric flu with high fever, so I'm just leaving this post here for you to report in. I'll edit in the tally and everything as soon as I'm able to be up for longer than five minutes again.
