They are so beautiful and happy. TAD always gives me feels!
Sing me awake with a song about pirates
And I will try to harmonise
And sip the sunlight from your eyes
Oh sing me awake
With all the things we’ll do today
But instead we’ll build a den
Out of pillows and get drunk again
And sip the sunlight from your eyes. Oh sing me awake with all the things we’ll do today.
Another one for this series, this time inspired from “Not Yet” by The Amazing Devil. I really like how the bottle turned out~ Madeleine and @joeybateyofficial are just seeping into my art brain non-stop.
6"x6" Gouache and Micron Pen. May 2020.
Apparently all I do now is hang out on Twitter gathering facts about Jaskier and Jaskier-related content. I regret nothing.
I won’t lie, the coin one makes me a little sad. I liked that fanon. 😭
And I always thought the Season of Storms standalone storyline (with some tweaking) would make a good plot for Geralt and Jaskier to reunite in S2. Guess that theory is out. And no Essi — for now. (Hope Joey is still pitching hard for Madeline.)
Has anyone made a definitive list yet of all the ad libs Joey Batey made on The Witcher S1? The ones I can think of currently are:
And then there’s the “o valley of penis” in Ep. 5 that Joey himself admitted to on the I’m Obsessed With This podcast.
(Obviously the full chamomile line wasn’t his, but curious what he changed/added — as it seems to have been enough to warrant some partial credit.)
I’ve watched Henry and Joey do some of their scenes and I think there’s definitely a bit of - I always say this - there’s definitely a bit of a Shrek and Donkey relationship going on there. -Freya Allan

I relate to The Amazing Devil on a deep level.
They’re a bunch of 30 year olds who write songs with strong, meaningful lyrics and beautiful music and then they have:
- And as the stars above them hum and hear them he’ll turn to her and say ‘that’s what she said’.
- You used to buy me scotch - still do - yeah but now too much is never enough.
- I’ve loved you, for a hundred years. Certainly fucking feels like it.
- Could be ghosts or monsters or a robot vampire I dunno.
- It’s not fair cos you make me weep when I’m just trying to watch The Office with my yogurt.
And I know that, despite their genius, they’re a bunch of disasters like me.
Moral of the story: kids, don’t try to be super serious as you grow up. My fellow adults, we can still enjoy silly things and be all goofy, it does not mean we aren’t responsible or that we can’t be profesionals when we have to.
Fret not, dear hearts ✨
I know you’re almost forty, look almost thirty, think you’re just over twenty and act as though you’re barely ten. And being aware of this, I usually furnish you with precise instructions. I tell you what you have to do, when you have to do it and how you’re to go about it. And I regularly get the impression that I’m talking to a stone wall.
