Aaaaand, bam! My contribution to Queen's Thief Appreciation Week! It's pen, watercolor, and colored pencil and was ultra fun to work on.
Last year I did an ominous piece of Gen falling, so this year I pivoted and did happily ever after.
It's got all your basic moving parts: Gen and Irene heading up to the crenellations,
Phresine loving on baby Hector while baby Eugenia drops a stolen earring that matches her dad's (with her mountain goat plushie nearby),
Helen and Sophos just being stupid cute with their wee heir, while the Magus still studies his map and Pol's sword leans on the wall beneath the three countries' banners,
Your pantheon of deities, with the Great Goddess at the center,
Teleus and Relius enjoying each other's company while Pheris (now with mobility aid!) ignores them (also there's a pigeon),
Costis and bespectacled Kamet with a plate of nut cakes, and a familiar author in the background with her stack of six books,
And, finally, our long-awaited elephant, while two of Gen's attendants search for their king.
Happy Queen's Thief Appreciation Week!!!

Hector loved Andromache so much, her fate was why he fought as hard as he did. The fall of Troy only terrified him because her destiny and his son's were attached to it. His greatest fear was the ruins of the woman he loved and his child because there would be no one left to protect them.
Achilles loved Patroclus so much, he would have burned the entire world to the ground just to avenge his death. His grief was so mighty he would have ended the war single handedly had the Gods not intervened to stop him.
Two loves that powerful clashed in the worst sort of way and only one of them could survive while the other died - and this is the devastating tragedy.
The only lesson is look, look at what love can do.
It can make you a hero or make a monster out of you.
Nikita Gill, Hector and Achilles

You know, for a final season that promised a brutal viewing experience with potentially one or more main characters killed off, it was very kind to them. There were themes everywhere about claiming your own sense of agency, and practically everyone did this. Striga and Morana rode off to start their own story, and Isaac began his own as well. Hector successfully schemed against the quartet, and the series’ trio acted vigorously to stop things from happening instead of staying one step behind. And none of them died. Only two recurring antagonists were killed off, and this was done by their own actions (suicide), reaffirming the agency the characters had reclaimed in general. The only main antagonist killed by someone else in an act of violence was “Death”, a slave to his insatiable hunger and his inability to escape it.
