This was going to be a much longer page. But then I realized I wasn't going to get as good a punchline as her expression for a while.

Don't roll your eyes when your face is the only thing she can see in the light, Taran. ;)

That is the face of somebody who knows he deserves whatever he’s about to hear. XD

Could you please include “Away with the Faeries” as the humorous subtitle for this one?

Oh dear, I’m not sure I should risk offending them in that manner.

Ouch...I didn't know Eilonwy could produce such a look! Poor Taran, he probably wishes he had went ahead and drowned.

Idk about drowning, but he might wish the floor would swallow him up about now.

That happens later! Don't foreshadow!
Great expressions. It's as though you've been married, or seen those who are.
I have to say, I am glad I put off reading Lloyd Alexander until I encountered your work. You have the best interpretations of a work of art I've ever seen outside of some staged plays, perhaps, and perhaps better than any of those - certainly most.
I'm a literary snob, so while I might frequently say that people reach out to the divine merely by showing creativity and illustrating something about creation, even if relatively imperfectly, I'll rarely rank someone ordinally like that. In other words, I mean that as a sincere, rarely given, highest compliment, even though I'm just some inveterate, irrepressible reader and blessedly dull family man in 'Bama.

My husband doesn't give me too many opportunities to give him this look, so we both were fortunate in our choices.

So you weren't familiar with the books before reading this? Now I have to ask - how'd you find it to begin with? Forgive me if you've mentioned it before and I've forgotten. It's hard for me to keep track of everyone. In any case, wow - thank you so much. Having seen the passion and skill of other artists in other fandoms, I don't think of myself as terribly unique on those aspects - it's the Prydain fanworld itself that is unique. There's not much competition here, so I'm a standout. But I do pour a lot into it, so I'm glad to know there are those out there who love it as much as I do - and just as importantly, let me know about it. Ever since smartphones dominated the internet experience, posting creative work has become more and more a screaming into the void, and I can't say I'd have kept this project going were I not assured that I have a small but loyal base counting on it.

Well, Lloyd Alexander's work is so beautifully underwritten, but still so tied to time and place (in his settings and his language and world-view) as to be quite evocative. But to get all that, one has to be familiar with a very specific but richly layered set of expressions of those times and places. Many fandoms cannot pull that off, or overwrite the original author's intent with currently fashionable riffs.
You don't. You care deeply about the characters as people, not props in some argument.
And kudos on the marriage. I made my wife laugh this morning when I pointed out the look of slightly disappointed worry I was catching on the way out the door. Hey, she cares, so there's that, which ain't nothing.

Thank you so much for your efforts! You give so much joy by this artwork! I read the books as a teenager and was addicted to them. Just bought them as ebooks recently and had a good time after 30 somethong years haha! I started reading them after seeing the disney movie actually so that movie had a good purpose after all. Anyway i hope you keep up the good work! Love your fanfic as wwl. Thank you very much!

I am assured of your sincerity by that username, haha. Thanks so much for this sweet praise - I’m so happy whenever a new (or old) fan stumbles across my work, and takes the time to comment. It means the world to me. Welcome in and I hope you continue to enjoy!

Your're welcome! That username does not come falling from thin air - i make musical instruments - but not the harp.

I've heard harps are, even more than lutes, like intense, monomaniacally focused marriages. Love-life balance! It's all quite Aristotelian. Keep your instruments in harmonium … er … harmony.

What a fascinating craft that must be! I had a friend in college who was apprenticing with a violin-maker. It always sounded like such a lovely, meditative thing to do - but I'm probably romanticizing that in my mind!

Meditative it is, romantic a bit less these days with a family, mostly fighting time but I guess you know all about it yourself. But no complaining! If you need sounds of snapping strings for the audio book let me know and i try to record some!

And Taran looks right at the reader like, "Here it comes."
