only 4 scenes left! I can’t believe I’m this close to being done.
I don’t know what I’ll do with myself when it’s done lol. (probably get over-invested in a new animation project)
Commission me 💛 ko-fi 💛 inprnt
[ID: the images are screenshots from an animated video of a scene from The Magnus Archives episode 200. They are of Jon and Martin. Jon has medium dark skin, long greying hair, solid glowing green eyes, and a short beard. He is wearing rectangular glasses, a long green collared shirt, and a lighter grey shirt under. Martin has light brown skin and dark grey hair. he is wearing round glasses, and a cream colored sweater, with the sleeves rolled up to the arms. They are backlit by green light
In the first, Martin is holding Jon’s hands, which are raised by his face as if he is gesturing as he talks. he is looking down and frowning slightly.
in the second, Martin is in the foreground, he looks to be saying something angrily while trying to pull jon, who is far behind him.
The third is martin hugging jon, Martin’s back is to the viewer, and Jon’s chin is resting on his shoulder, he looks like he’s saying something with a resigned look on his face.
The last is of a similar pose as the third, jons face is buried in martin’s arm, hands clutching it. green tear-like light is leaking from his eyes. end ID.]

Sometimes I think about the fact that Legend grew up in a world where The Hero failed. Like, growing up, Legend must have heard a lot about The Hero of Time. He heard how he failed, heard how he died. He does not grow up idealizing the boy who played hero, the boy the goddesses offered on a silver platter to be slaughtered. Parents probably make him a cautionary tale, a story about a child trying to do the job of the sages. Regardless, some kids still see their tree branches as the Master Sword. They see their backyard as a battle field, their friends, siblings, pets as monsters to be slain. They jump and fight and tumble and laugh and save the world, but it's all so juvenile to young Legend. He knows it's all make believe. Play acting. Baby stuff. He knows it’s fake cause he knows what happens to real heroes: they fail. They die.
Now blacksmiths... now thats a profession. They get to make all the weapons and tools everyone uses. They get to work with molten metal and fire and hammers and its just so cool! So while other kids tackle each other and argue and cry over who gets to be the hero this time and pretend to pull swords from stones, Legend spends his days pretending to pull swords from hearths. He spends his days peeking through the blacksmiths windows and watching.
He has not heard of the Hero of the Minish. That’s a legend that has mostly faded from history by his time, overshadowed by the Hero of Time’s failure. He does not grow up looking for Picori in the grass nor pretending to fight his shadow. Who Legend has heard of, who he looks up to, who he is so happy to be named after, is Link, the Legendary Master Blacksmith who could forge a blade to rival even the Master Sword.
