He awoke to nothing--or, rather, something that looked quite a bit like nothing. A haze, the coolness on his skin told him, a haze that surrounded and held him gently, rank of limestone and sulfur that stung his nose and eyes.
He stood with a groan--why could he stand? The last thing he remembered. . . well, no, he couldn't remember anything. It was more of a feeling, a ghost of a memory that told him he should be mangled and crippled, yet he stood with ease.
Into the misty void he walked, toward nowhere, toward anywhere; a dream of somewhere that stayed just out of reach. He couldn't see the end of his own nose, and the ground was jagged and loose and searing hot--where had his shoes gone?--but still he walked forward. He walked for an impossible amount of time.
Then, at a certain point, something was in the distance--the haze was thinning! He could see shadows of his own hands, and the dirty, torn rags of a peasant he wore. Why was he in rags? That didn't seem right--he felt like a nobleman. . . but that didn't matter. He stumbled on minced, sautéed feet, and shouted "help!" but was met with silence.
He drew closer, and closer, and a second figure appeared in the opposite direction. Soon he could see the dirt under his fingernails, and gasped at what was in the distance--an Angel! Its wings and faint halo glow were unmistakable. He praised God, knowing He was watching over him, and fumbled forth, heart bursting with praise and warmth. In the distance, the second figure--an ordinary looking man--raised a hand and shouted "help!". He met it with silence.
With the last of his energy, the weary wanderer dragged himself forward--and, at its feet, felt a single word wrack his soul.

Magic broke in waves over the land and instead of running in fear, she bent its will to her own. Urging tender sprouts to rise with one hand. Crumbling cities with the other.
And she became the shield for those who needed it. Unforgiving enemies to the roving bands of scavengers.
But they all the truth; she was still a mortal woman. And the Sixth Piercing would, eventually, be more than she could contain.
This took two hours and it still looks...so...bad..... I cry 😭
I used the copic medium & extra broad nib brushes, as well as the colorless soft flat brush because I've never used it before. I tried to add more layers but it just made the whole thing really bright.
Finally settled on using the synthetic soft flat brush 2 & the smuge flat bristle brush 3 to try and fill in the spots. Then the "beard" was supposed to be a veil but the red fades even though it's a layer about the blue 🤦🏾
So it's facial hair now.
The only thing I really like is that the "hair" has *strong* Asari vibes and this pleases my Mass Effect fangirl heart.
2 years, 8 months and 600,000+ words!!! ❤😍❤😍❤😍❤😍❤ All my heart. So happy this reached over 50K reads!!! I'm so happy for all who have read it and enjoyed it. Thank you so much for reading!! I developed this story right after school, born from trying times I didn't think I'd be able to finish it at some point.

As now.. I'm on book 3 ^.^ which I've been slowly writing because I've been busy. I'm trying to edit this one for publication soon. So many high hopes for it.

Busting out the latest installment of the month long Enter the Manifeco Winter Wonderland themed illustrations for the season. We enter chapter five where Saria Manifeco and the Mysterious Swordsman Johnathan tackle the old tradition of making gingerbread houses. Like us humans some beast either are naturals or fail miserably in the old holiday art.

Jolt is teaching the new Lumi how the Wondrous & Whimzical universe works. Bang Pops are where it all begins. Space, colorful skies, and a magical land follow.
