“he cried as if his heart would break”
Made something for my favorite moment in Comet In Moominland! At this point in the story the gang has already faced all kinds of crazy, progressively more life threatening situations as they try to reach home before the Comet hits the earth, and throughout it all Snufkin has remained the most calm, carefree, and rational. He’s usually responsible for the quick thinking to get them out of each situation and also for keeping everyone’s spirits up with his wacky stories!!
But then they reach where the sea should have been only to find that it’s been dried up completely. Seeing the ocean just gone after everything turns out to be Snufkin’s breaking point. He loves the sea and everything it represents to him (freedom, adventure, peace, wonder, basically his life philosophy personified). and while he was able to weather everything else the Comet threw at them, he can’t seem to bare this. He surprises everyone when he bursts into tears.
The group’s moral support character/field guide falling apart super highlights exactly how dire the situation/threat of the Comet has become, and how not one soul will be left unaffected by its impact. I love Tove Jansson.
(i love the sea too, snufkin lol)

I’m gonna come up with some magic systems/powers for kicks now here we go
-emotions can be transmuted into materials and crafted into items, in a process called catharsis. the transmutation captures a person’s entire emotional state in that moment, and items made from the purest emotions are highly prized. each emotion provides a buff of sorts, but if it’s very strong and/or the user is particularly sensitive, they can be overwhelmed.
-magic is in the teeth. humans can augment their abilities by adding the fangs of magical creatures to their mouths. dentists are a big deal. don’t want someone to use their magic? You Know What You Must Do.
-”oracles” see the lines of fate and can manipulate them, but it’s a highly complex skill with a lot of weird rules. also the universe has a sense of irony. and it REALLY gets weird when you have two oracles in competition, like two people playing chess with destiny. chesstiny, if you will.
-people draw their magic from colors, and each color provides a different function. mages color-coordinate for specific effect, but often hide their chosen colors under drab robes for the element of surprise. they’ll also do everything in their power to color their surroundings to their advantage
-power is determined through the establishment of bonds with others. bonds need not be positive, but they must be sealed over a token. most bonds are a net positive for everyone; some are unbalanced. everyone keeps their bond tokens close at hand, and they change with the relationships. and maybe different people provide different kinds of power in a bond? if you kill someone, all their bonds will be alerted.
