This was funnier in my head…
White diamond doodles
Some of these sketches are for a potential future story arc (possibly)
Every morning I open my eyes. I lay in bad and tell myself a story of who I am. What happened in the last days, last months, last years, then I tell myself what should be done today, what I must be prepared to do. It is done every single morning, the list of stories, me telling and listening to them at the same time. Like a strange kind of script that I tell about myself again and again so I could remember who I am.
The height of two Pearls, going on three.
Summary: Ever since the championship, Rusty has taken to avoiding CB and his permanent bad mood. But when CB wants to start dragging Rusty with him on all his crazy schemes, how can Rusty (safely) say no?

Rusty rolled through the yard, idly listening to the chirps of the birds and the gentle rustle of the wind through the trees. He was out on his own and really enjoying the peace, especially after spending so much time in the louder, more industrial freight yard. He’d been kept busy for the past few days—he didn’t know if it was due to a rise in status or just a coincidence, but ever since he won the championship a few months back, there seemed to be a lot more problems in the yard that everyone insisted they trusted no one but Rusty to fix. He was, of course, always happy to help, but he was starting to feel a little worn thin.
As Rusty breathed in the fresh air, he felt the lingering tension in his shoulders start to melt away. A small smile made itself at home on his lips. He really needed this, he thought as he rolled along.
The sun was glinting off an unusually shiny spot on his
arm, and it kept catching his eye. Every time it did, he looked down,
needing to remind himself that it was him causing that glare. While he
was still a far cry from looking like new, he was a lot more polished
than usual. It was strange to see. He’d spent the early afternoon
scrubbing off as must of his rust as he could, an extra bit of effort he
hoped Pearl would appreciate.
