this is a sweet little gift for @arcanescribbles based on this piece of artwork titled Exhausted. PLEASE go look at their work - no one draws Viktor quite like they do. they are a master at capturing the essence of our boy.

You took his face in your hands and pressed yourself close, the tip of your nose in the crook of his, breath ghosting over shaky breath. Delicately, as though afraid he would hurt you, you felt his fingers curl into your hair.
“Cолнце– cолнце–" He said his nickname for you once, twice, like a prayer, like the ravings of a mad man, like a desperate wish. His eyes fluttered closed and you felt the wisps of his eyelashes against your temple.
“Viktor,” you whispered in response, reverent. Worshipping. Your voice cracked. “Viktor. You are– you– you’re–"
“What? Cолнце, what is it?”
“Everything.” It came out as a gasp. “You’re everything. Everything in the entire world, you’re– oh, gods, if I could– I can’t believe I get to– to look at you, to hear you speak, to– to touch you–"
“You can do whatever you want,” he said. His hand moved from the back of your head to your cheek. When he swept his thumb over your cheekbone, you had to choke back a sob. “Anything you want. Oh, cолнце, you are brilliant, you are– you are so warm– so good–"
A strangled sound escaped you, high and wanton. Embarrassment burned in your chest, but you paid it no mind– instead you pressed yourself ever closer to him, as though maybe if you just held him tight enough, you could disappear within him entirely. He smelled of ink and lavender. His skin was so soft beneath your fingertips. Before you knew it, the words you swore you would never voice out loud spilled from your lips like ambrosia, forbidden and intoxicating.
“I would let you do such horrible things to me.”
Viktor stilled. His fingers, still placed gently on your cheek, twitched, the movement so slight you could almost convince yourself you'd imagined it.
You flinched. Cold, icy regret washed over you, and you brought your eyes up quickly to scan his expression. “I– I mean– oh, gods, I’m sorry, that was weird, that was– that was a weird thing to say, just– oh, fuck, just forget I even said that, I–"
Viktor tightened his grip on the side of your face, his thumb moving down to brace against your chin, forcing you to meet his gaze directly. You were centimeters apart– so close you could see the flecks of gold his irises.
“Cолнце,” he said softly, the emotion in his voice all-consuming. “Don’t apologize. Please.”
You swallowed. Your skin was prickling with something unidentifiable. “... Okay. I.. I won’t.”
“Good,” Viktor murmured, and you suppressed a shiver. “Now..” His tone dipped, low and hot and burning, and you felt your breath leave you. “What sort of horrible things?”
Wow, my goodness……..
Your writing is so eloquent and romantic, passionate…..
Okay whoever you are can you please fucking message me and tell me who you are and also where the rest of your writing is because right now you’re being SUCH A TEASE!!! THIS WAS FUCKING BEAUTIFUL 😭😭😭😭😭👑😭😭😭😭😭😭😭👑👑👑👑👑👑

Edit edit edit I’m feeling extremely overwhelmed that you sent this to little old ME of all people?????? Why??? Why did you pick me… I feel so… so chosen and so special to have this in my inbox………. 🥺
Okay i have a song for this
YO @gaybybirth I MADE YOU SOMETHJNFDJSKALDHSNJA ✨
I know I’m spamming you guys at this point but can anyone direct me to a slow burn emo painful nsfw fic where VIK is the one pining after the reader? Because the opposite is already happening IRL *cries*
Can someone come and fold my clothes for me because they are in organized piles all over the floor and I’m getting paranoid that my cat is going to make them her new litter box
Starting my day the best way I know how: coffee and simping for your Viktor ❤️☕️
Omg, twins I started my day with a coffee and simping for all you beautiful people visiting me to say hi 🥺💕the best way
Tumblr user arcanescribbles, thoughts on procreate mocha gradient map supremacy?
BRUH IM A SIMP FOR CURVES AND GRADIENT MAPS I don’t even paint in color anymore I literally make my shit in black n white and then dump colors on it afterwards because god gave us GRADIENT MAPS it takes so much guesswork outttttt
Also yes mocha is 🔥💥🤟
Friendly reminder to comment to fanfic writers if you like their work ✨
I know Guns for Hire-Woodkid was played at the end of the episode where Jinx sets off her flare for Vi to find her but I can't help but associate the song with Viktor, it's just so elegant and pretty and I just feel like the mood just suits him
OMF GGGG when I heard this song?? I swear to you I felt the EXACT same way. Like all the other songs, idk. But that song? It’s completely totally written for viktor and Jayce’s broken bond. You sold your friends…. Like guns for hire… ￼🎶
Also more headcanon. These two songs are the most perfect, CLOSEST embodiment of characters I have felt so far. One of them is for jinx and one is for viktor. The lyrics are so so spot on, the feeling; everything. It’s all captured within these songs….
Ilomilo for JINX
Hurry, I’m worried
The world’s a little blurry
Or maybe it’s my eyes
The friends I’ve had to bury
They keep me up at night
Viktor - soldier on
Soldier on, soldier on
Keep your heart close to the ground
Soldier on, soldier on
Keep your heart close to the ground
I've just read this answer about touching Vik's hair, neck and spine and now I got frustrated because I wish to touch him like that even more, thank you very much 🥵
Also your Vi is sooooo great ❤️
You don’t dare disturb him when he’s working at the lab. You ache to but there’s a mutual respect and understanding that, that time he’s working? It’s precious. And the same for you. At those times you both are your own and separate. But. When he’s all yours in the early mornings and late nights? Buried inside you in the throes of passion? that’s when you can pull his hair all you want, however you want, whatever you want and he just… lets you. “Look at me.” You say, and he obeys, staring at you with a deep sense of love and overwhelm…. Every word and every whim of yours, he just.. obeys. 🤲
Your sketches have such a beautiful and ethereal quality! I followed you for Viktor, but when I saw Vi my jaw actually dropped. Excellent work!
😩♥️ thank you so much, I love when sketches feel like a dream…. Like you can think about them long after you watch them.
Vi is so fucking incredible lol the things I would do to her *sigh* I hesitated drawing her forEVER because she’s hard to draw her expression carries so much intensity and raw emotion it’s really really fucking beautiful isn’t it?!! 😭😭😭💥
nah cuz viktor with his hair tied up is another weakness of mine FUCKKKKK😫😫😵💫😵💫😵💫 HHRHRGEHVAHARJK smt about men w long hair and tying their shit up 😖💥💥 -down atrocious
Oh fuck yeah, his hair being all wavy and short? The ponytail would be a lil nubbin. And soft and fluffy. And loose tendrils would be falling everywhere around his face and neck. FUCK-
Wonder what his hair smells like too. Like a slight coffee smell most of the time but on days he comes into the lab having groomed up a bit…. Freshly soaped? Maybe he likes a more woodsy soap for his hair. And to keep it out of his face until it dries properly in the mornings as someone who couldn’t care less about his appearance… he might just pull it into a nubby lil ponytail for a bit…. Not like they use hairdryers right 🤣 So those little tendrils are a bit wet still-*licks*
Oh- and when it’s greasy and he’s not slept in days and he’s run his fingers thru his hair so many times in frustration or excitement, it’s totally unruly, disheveled and chaotic… is when you’d better stay away from him because your clothes will spontaneously fall off
Okay but -
In that scene where Jayce gives a speech, and viktor is in the back with his hand on the crank, ready to reveal the new stabilized hex core. Did anyone notice that scene also visually foreshadows that even though Viktor’s in the back literally with his hand resting on the technology, Jayce is the one who’s up there all on his own making decisions and choosing not to reveal it to the world?
I think that’s a great foreshadowing to later on where Jayce will be making political decisions for hextech despite the fact that viktor is the one to have actually taken these theories and applied them painstakingly and also why his hands are always ON the tech, not jayce’s… cough cough what I mean to say is Jayce is gonna make a decision to call war and vik is gonna “steal” HIS OWN hextech away to save zaun
i'd like to both; apologize for my constant spam when i go through the tagline (i try to space it out so it doesn't completely flood your inbox) - and to tell you that i will continue to do so (spam) regardless, sorry not sorry <3. (also if it helps to ease your mind at all, i'm here for the flood of text posts as much as i'm here for the viktor art, your vibes are immaculate and you lighten up my day)
Awwwwww I’m so glad, you guys completely make my day 100x better and so I’m officially addicted to tumblr…. 🥺🥰 where else will I find people as adorable… as all of you…. We can be simps in love together….
Now that you’re bored with my page go read this beautiful beast of a fanfic by @chickenparm because it’s fucking amazing okay????!!!!
Yeaaaa…. Um don’t mind me I’m just losing my mind 🙃
I’m just going to put this out there. IF ALL YOUR LAYERS IN PHOTOSHOP ARE PERFECTLY LABELED YOU’RE PROLLY A SERIAL KILLER
I blush everytime I see your divine Viktor art👁//👄//👁
♥️😍 if I’m not blushing and trembling while making it, something isn’t right
your artwork has me barking, drooling, going wild, doing flips its so good i love it
I love you for being here, thank you for dealing with me and my horniness
I admire your creativity and as far as I know you have a creative profession. Could you tell how much time you spent learning to draw like that?
Wow a serious question wait let me prepare *ahem* haha, that is a very hard question to answer though…. I spent many many many many hours like…. Several hours a day? well since I was in middle school? And then about 8-10 hrs daily these days. Ahh, it’s really hard to quantify that… but for what it’s worth I think it’s important to keep taking classes if you wanna improve and grow no matter what level you’re at. I don’t think you need to go to art school necessarily but you would need to take classes at places like CGMA, LAAFA, Schoolism, and definitely figure drawing, to git your work gewd haha, I mean life doesn’t come with promises but isn’t the the thrill… every day i get up and I try and I never know what’s gonna come out. I live for it!!
To clarify I went to 2 years of art school then dropped out because money, and then took things in my own hands to improve. It’s a lifelong commitment to it and you have to love it a lot but it’s not always fun, it’s work too…. Especially in a day job 🥲 haha. If you keep working at it and exploring, and experimenting you will get to a point where it becomes a little easier every day. think of it like a lifelong relationship that takes a lot of effort and love to make it work… I’ve had my fair share of crying screaming throwing up tbh
hi oomf i NEED to know do you listen to sunny day realestate? If not I totally recommend killed by an angel i think that song is very viktor esk
OoooOOOo I like!! Thank you for the recommendation you sweet anonymous friend
wait what’s ur instagram?? i can’t believe there’s another world of ur art im missing bc i found this account out of pure thirst 🤚
BABYYYY YOU ARE ALREADY ON THE COOLER PAGE TRUST 👏
