It’s finally finished! Oh my gosh, what a journey this has been! I started concept on this last July (2020) and have been working in chunks via Instagram Lives to complete this sequel papercraft of the Six of Crows for over a year!
I’m so excited to present Hook And Crook, inspired by a specific scene that happens in Crooked Kingdom. I’ve been stating this over and over again during the lives, but there were specific mirrors happening here between the two papercrafts that wholly define the dynamics of the characters and the two books.
We talked about how the symbols in the facade of the Slat in Featherdark (Six of Crows papercraft) represented the strengths of each character (cane, knife, guns, bombs etc). The crow is standing proud and upright, above the city, to symbolize the upper-hand that the dregs had during SOC.
Now, the tables have turned in Hook And Crook. The symbols on the facade of the hotel show the character’s weaknesses (gloves, a red bird, gambling wheel, Dunyasha’s stars, paintbrush & laurels etc). The crow is defensively crouching with its hackles raised, the city above and oppressing - all representing the dregs having to turn and fight under dire circumstances.
And bonus! When you put the two side-by-side, a little nod to a certain Ravkan symbol takes form!
What a stupidly fun project this was! I’m so happy it’s finally finished and I thank you all for those who joined me in the lives to watch the process!
(so sorry for the low quality on this; Featherdark is my most pilfered artwork for unsanctioned merch 💔)
okay what if… they transform into their real miraculous species?
i just think it makes more sense for them to not recognize each other if it’s like this haha. anyway i always thought if adrien transforms into a cat he’ll be a golden cat you know haha and marinette’s blue eyes will be so pretty on a big bug eyes
Current Mood: Crying While Watching Blue’s Clues Pride Song
It’s sung to the tune of The Ants Go Marching One By One song!!!
Another reason why Blues Clues and You is like the best reboot ever
some highlights from the notes 💖
Oh, my god. I’m already crying with asexuality included.
Now you’re telling me other groups feel the same way?
There’s legit tears down my face.
The more you look at it the more you love it.
The drag queen is holding a BLM sign.
There’s a Hijabi on the all races float (and if you look closely at the flag, I think the owl is indigenous).
One of the babas is disabled.
They could have just stopped at including all the flags.
But no. They said “I don’t care if they’re animals. I’m going to make it very clear we’re including all races and disabled people.”
And it’s such small details, but they’re there.
Found 2 more hidden BLM flags.
And I consider myself pretty versed in queer identities, but even I don’t know what some of these flags are.
Which really shows that you’ve never had the opportunity to feel validated like this, and that makes me love it even more.
I already made my own post about this as well, but it seems like a good idea to add the info on this post too, since it’s really taken off. There are (at least) 30 different flags plus assorted other representation. They include:
Pride, Progress Pride, BLM Progress Pride, Lesbian, Gay Man
Trans, Nonbinary — Dolphin wheelchair user, Top surgery beaver
Bigender, Genderflux, Omnisexual, Neutrois, Maverique, Pangender, Drag — llama(?) with prosthetic leg
Trigender, Ally, Two-Spirit, and Gender Questioning — Hijabi owl and Native American owl
I’m so fucking happy for the LGBTQ+ kids that have things like this to let them know they’re valid
This much representation including stuff I’ve never fucking seen before
and in a KIDS show, like that’s insane, people will finally grow up knowing it’s ok to exist
Blues clues did their research, said LGBTQ+ rights and fucking meant it bruh
Please like it to show your support. Conservatives are dislike bombing the video and the likes to dislikes ratio is 53:41. Earlier it was 51:39. If the ratio is too bad then Nik might not do anything like this again - bad for publicity. So please show them how important this video is!
PLEASE like the video, the redneck right have dislike bombed to nearly 50/50, please support this amazing video

okay listen UP the only parallel in cinematic history that matters and i mean the ONLY one is when the shot in fellowship of the ring where frodo’s hand reaches into the water to grab sam’s is mirrored by the shot in return of the king where sam reaches over the edge of the volcano to grab frodo’s hand and pull him up like. poetic FUCKING cinema.

Notes: finally, the epilogue of Chipped Tea Sets in my Pieces verse!
thank you all so much for sticking with me this long, it has been an
absolutely blessed ride and I cannot wait to add even more to this
verse now that this monster is out of the way
can we please appreciate their t-shirt though holy
[ID: A photo of Mayor Owen Hurcum, a person with bright green hair. They are smiling and holding up a white mug with a rainbow symbol on it. They are in a black t-shirt that reads, in white letters, THEY/THEM/THE MAYOR]
That pride symbol on the mug is a Welsh Love Spoon, that’s super cool.
