A little break in continuity so I can have some fun.
Explanatory tidbit: though mistletoe was a sacred plant to the Celts, and surrounded with all kinds of druidic ritual and fertility symbolism, the kissing tradition came to us from the Norse, and it's unknown when, exactly, that began to be passed around the neighboring cultures.
I'm not taking December off or anything; I just could not resist a chance to play with my favorite 'ship.
Tune in Monday for your regularly scheduled update. :)
Wish I had more to say about it than that, but really that's the reaction that hits me.
"The artist is trying to be festive". And perhaps "arrange" a certain encounter?
Haha, well. That ship doesn't sail for a long, long time, but since, in these off-shoot strips, my T & E are aware of their own identities as characters separate from the series proper, who knows...
Though it's much more fun to dance around the possibility of such encounters than actually commit to them.
If anything it's our duty as creators to never ever commit to those encounters. Partly because it IS much more fun to dance around them.
Truth! Tension is fun. Resolution is boring. See: any sitcom, ever, where the will-they/won't they couple finally do.
LOL, you really have captured these characters because this is *exactly* what would happen in that situation.
hahah right? You know this is how it goes down all the time.
*lol* nice one =D
...at first she is angry at him for trying - and then she is angry at him because he did not... =P
...too great... *hugs Eilonwy*
Typical adolescent crazy! I remember scenarios like this so well!
Wonderful!!! Enjoying the depiction of one of my favorite series. (Currently reading Taran Wanderer to my son, as a matter of fact).
I'm sure you could just write/draw/create adventures of Taran and Eilonwy outside of Lloyd Alexander's works, and no one would be upset with that. :)
Thank you! :)
And...I do, and have. I have reams of fanfiction, though I tend to stick firmly within canonical boundaries; not adding to the works as much as just digging further into characters. But I've had a lot of fun over the years with it. :)
