Commission for Mooney and her two OCs. <3

Because I actually don’t have art of Sereno topping, but both do happen.

(PS, technically, Ulciscor is the GM’s, the half-green eyed boy is mine.)

MEANWHILE FOR THE NEW PEOPLE, I HAVE MULTIPLE PCS/CHARACTERS I PLAY IN GAMES.  This one is Sereno Blackwood, a half-Mexican academic who got kidnapped by the fae, turned into a changeling forced to clean a vast, empty library without food or water, and then when he finally escaped, facepalmed when he realized he was a brownie

The man with the slightly emo haircut is his significant other, a magician by the title Ulciscor who acts as magical MIB and general spywork.  He’s the anti-hero of a story, cold, collected, and repressing knowledge that shouldn’t come to light, but he isn’t one of the heroes here.  Nope, Sereno is, sweet, anxious Sereno, a fussy fairy who takes strength in the tranquil stability and relative normalcy that comes out of their relationship, similar to how Ulciscor is comforted by having a place he can go and be told “Go sit down, I’ll finish cooking and we can dish.”

(… the puns are something Ulciscor has gotten used to.)

So I’m playing a Fairest.

I know she is a dual-kithed Flowering/Treasured; her Keeper turned her into a fashion accessory for his precious courtiers and she spent years like that.  I know her flower is the rose, and that her Keeper was a Handsome Devil who had whisked her away into a cutthroat political domain where only the lovely survived and no darkness fell.

But… the thing is, I don’t want her to have Striking Looks.  She is pretty, definitely, but she has a generic prettiness, and I’m trying to figure out the character herself, beyond her being a heart-broken attention seeker who is so used to being silent that she’s fighting to speak up now.  I know she wears all black as a silent rebellion against the Fae she fled from, but… otherwise, the character is relatively flat.

Does anyone have any ideas to add to the girl?  Because I’m trying, but picking other people’s brains would be nice.

The results of voting for Winter’s Crown

Dread, naturally, called both Cheerio and Sereno insane.  Sereno didn’t comment, but as he continued to talk, he struck up an idea.  If there was a fair vote, one for the whole freehold, would it mollify Cheerio and the unknown Changelings who would have left?

The answer was yes.  And so, everyone was called to the freehold that evening, and Sereno created a secret ballot.  No meddling and no discussion to persuade people, as required by Dread.  One hour.

The winner was Willow Mackennal, a Treasured sculptor.  While she joined the freehold after the Concord was born, after the war ended, she has a will of iron and will not allow herself to be used by anyone.  This will be interesting.

How many people would be upset if I ended up posting slash in any of these tag?

Because I’m working on something, but I’m not sure anyone would want it or really care.

Have another old commission (holy shit, three years ago?!), by Dongsaeng, this one of Fu as a mortal.  I had to ask him to put the handcuffs on Fu&#8217;s belt due to his issues with bondage, but all and all, this one was well worth the money paid.
And because it has to be said, I&#8217;m pretty sure either he&#8217;s very interested already, or the fucker shoved a sock down there.  Most likely the first one.  He would deck anyone implying the second.

Cockblocked by the Sin-eater.

Verymild trigger warning for a reference to certain drugs.

So, in the mixed nWoD game I’m in, my Spring Wizened is on a mixture of a Valentine’s date and a mission: The PCs are framing someone for murder to help conceal a vampire NPC’s existence, at a political mixer for our Sin-eater PC (basically think of someone who made a deal with a ghost), Jack Abraham, a politician who’s running for mayor.  To do this, part of the plan is to dose the patsy and the Sin-eater with roofies to create a ‘black out period’ and a time our douchebag patsy doesn’t have an alibi.

Sereno, the Changeling, is mostly there as a member of Jack’s campaign staff, as his role in the plot is to plant a dream into the patsy’s mind to blur the lines about what really happened, and that doesn’t need him near the guy.  And so, at ease with the fact he won’t be needed much at all, Sereno asked his gentleman friend, a mage, to accompany him as his date, both for the sake of company andjustin case, as the mage in question is a Mastigos Guardian of the Veil.   

(For those playing the home game, Sereno’s dating a guy who can read minds and manipulate space, and works for magical MiB most likely as wetworks.  And goes by the moniker Ulciscor.  That ain’t sunshine and kittens.)

Things are actually going well, Sereno has been schmoozing a bit as a staffer should be doing, and occasionally returning to his date to relax and calm down so he doesn’t get too overwhelmed.  The two start talking about different little things, such as Sereno’s mental state being a bit weird, but very well insulated, reducing the amount of noise Ulciscor hears from him, and it comes out Ulciscor finds Sereno’s nature, as a friendly, kind, sincereperson to be appealing, a rarity in the world of darkness, while Sereno finds Ulciscor’s personality to be comforting and encouraging analysis in a positive manner.  Sereno makes a mention that he probably should get back to the social aspects, and Ulciscor offers a little bit of help, touching his hand and amplifying Sereno’s sense of inner peace enough to provide power for Sereno’s magic.  More on that in a few.

Meanwhile, Jack has gotten to the patsy, and they are talking.  The guy’s well connected, which is nice, and he gets a few introductions to people before they go to talk in private, where the drugged wine is.  They keep talking there, and there’s implications the patsy’s hitting on him.  However, the patsy lets something worrying slip: he has more connections than expected, and he might be involved with supernaturals the city doesn’t know about.  Lovely.  Jack texts Sereno to get him and Ulciscor down to where he is so Ulciscor can read the patsy’s thoughts.

Back to our idiot Changeling, one of the emotional reasons why he’s attracted to Ulciscor is tranquility, a sense of security.  Ulciscor’s calm, blunt, and intelligent, things that appeal to a boy who has a fractured mind, who craves safety, prone to worrying and panicking.  His appearance doesn’t help matters either, and Sereno tends to be flushed around Ulciscor.  Their first meeting, Sereno panicked pretty badly, and he’s been getting better over time.  Anyway, getting a major dose of peace and tranquility?  Sereno was inches from taking his first kiss there.

Then the Addams Family started playing on Sereno’s phone and interrupted that.  So no smooches and right now, Sereno’s planting the dream in the patsy’s head and Ulciscor is scanning the unconscious patsy’s thoughts to figure out who and what the hell he’s working for. 

Such a pity.  At least Sereno’s fine with it.  Just about nothing can rattle him at the moment.
