Gimli for yesterday’s drawing !
I’m still not over the fact, that in Spellforce 3 Soul Harvest, when you create a character, the “jewelry” button will go through different beards for dwarven men and women and actual jewelry (like tiaras) for dark elven men and women.
I mean, I love it, but it made me laugh as well xD
The world is a mess right now. Just wanted share a little happiness of a happy giggling Fíli. Love our lion prince! 🦁💛
god my favorite elf/dwarf trope is cultural misunderstandings re: courting rituals? like a dwarf braiding their elf lover’s hair and freaking out internally because oh my god they don’t know i’m basically claiming that we’re together ahhhh or an elf having sex with their dwarf lover and freaking out because oh nooo they don’t know how serious this is ahhhhh (and this works with things other than braids and sex, those are just the two most common ones i see)
bonus points if the other person has heard rumors of that practice, like because the dwarf doesn’t mention anything significant about their new braids they assume it’s not an accurate rumor - until another dwarf points it out and they’re like ohHHH SHIT I WAS RIGHT, why didn’t they TELL me???
and even BETTER: the other person does know what it means but is too anxious to bring it up, like because the elf doesn’t say that having sex basically means you’re engaged/married/whatever version of the trope you want to go with, the dwarf is like well i guess i’m married now and starts acting like it, which freaks the elf out because they’re like i didn’t tell them we’re married?? are they mocking me?? are they coming on to me?? what’s going on??
- OR they assume they DO know what it means and are upset when the other person DOESN”T act like they’re already married…!!! and everyone gets their feelings hurt until they inevitably talk about it and clear everything up
and OF COURSE it has to be reciprocal, like the elf does their cultural thing and the dwarf then does theirs, and then when the issue finally gets confronted they both confess how much they care about each other and how they’ve already acted on it, and then they KISS and are HAPPY
A map of Erda for my Orc King story, I thought it would be helpful to have something to reference when I was writing so I had a better more grounded idea of where everything is in relation to the other.
It’s not finished, I still have to name some of the rivers and lakes, but I’m excited to talk about my thought process when diving into races/kingdoms!
Anyway I’m super proud because I suck at maps and junk but it was alot easier with a cartography brush pack I got on gumroad here!
“Don’t you feel like less of a woman?” What does that mean? I can’t physically carry children in my body (and wouldn’t really want to either) but I’ve had girls and guys come up to me and say “can you…you know?” And usually I’m confused. Cause it’s like, what does “you know” mean. Usually it means can I have sex. Disabled people are seen as inherently sexless beings, so even if we could have kids, we wouldn’t have the sex to have them. But it’s like, I’m just nineteen, I don’t even know if I want kids yet. Just because my body can’t produce them doesn’t mean I can’t adopt? It’s like there are so many things I can do besides birth my own kids. I’m not less of a woman for not being able to either.
