Jzx remembers that his mum and madam yu are sworn sisters and he has Questions.
(from this post)
Sorry if this has been answered somewhere else, but have you read Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation? I know you watched Untamed so I was just curious if you read the novel it was based on!
I’ve read some excerpts, but not the whole thing nope
I have no idea why, but every time I see modern JZX in your au, I feel as if he has the inner dialogue of John Mulaney. I dont know why, I cant give you an answer.
I mean… it’s fairly accurate
found this in the dusty depths of my WIP folder! I did a lot of face studies when I was trying to learn how to draw these guys, and xingchen was someone I really struggled with getting a likeness of. I think I was aiming to do a song lan version too though clearly that never happened… sORRY LI BOWEN.
it’s been a long day 😌
me, drawing xiyao: I’m gonna make an art that has so much rimlighting…
Huaisang, incandescently delighted: I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU LANDED TWO BOYFRIENDS DA-GE I’M SO PROUD 😭
Wangji, disappointed: I Can’t Believe You’ve Done This, xiongzhang, that’s another two people that I’m now obligated to be at least marginally polite to
Zixuan, bewildered but trying his best: …sooooo, um, is this a sworn brother thing, oooor…?
Other anon can go do one
You don't have to be such a cunt about herringrove. Let people like what they like.
literally all I’ve said is “please don’t tag my art as h@rringrove, I don’t like the ship”
…………let people dislike what they dislike l m a o and if you’re mad about it you can leave my blog
Ahh!! Your sangcheng post with ace jc actually helped me figure myself out! I never knew the term sex-neutral ace and was blown away to see a character I rlly like drawn the same kind of ace as me!! So um yeah.. 👉👈 ty a lot
Hey!! I absolutely love your art especially the human! Loustat au. I was wondering if you’re gonna keep adding to it cause it’s so so good🥺
anonymous said: just found your vampire chronicles human au and i am OBSESSED
ah, I’m glad you guys like it so much! I’m really on a The Untamed kick right now (……..maybe you’ve noticed……..) but I do have a half-written human!loustat AU that is very close to my heart that I am DESPERATE to finish so maybe once I drag myself out of this particular hyperfixation I’ll get back on that! as for art, I’ll keep popping up bits and pieces for it. if it’s something you’d really like to see asap, you can always buy me a coffee and request it :)
QIN SU AND THE BOYS
I wanted to do something that looked like it could be editorial photography and also an excuse to put them all in fancy clothes! though as I was colouring I realise that xuanyu was never going to abide by the jin colour palette so I imagine he just rocks up for the photoshoot and it’s like
meng yao: wHAT ARE YOU WEARING
xuanyu: zixuan-ge said I had to wear a suit and I’m wearing a suit!
zixuan, wincing: I… I did say that, yes…
meng yao: we had a very specific colour palette arranged!
xuanyu: I’m wearing a suit!
meng yao: you look like discount asian gerard way!
xuanyu: I’M WEARING A SUIT
xuanyu: also thanks!! ✌😘
You single handedly dragged me into 3zun hell and now I'm in misery bc 👏there👏 are 👏no👏 fluffy👏 fics👏
well my friend you are in luck because this morning I had a free half an hour and the determination to trawl through 21 pages of ao3 to find you THE BEST FLUFFY 3ZUN FICS I KNOW OF -
Concept: Baby Jin Ling loves snuggles and attention. Whenever his dad goes to put him down he's really upset. JZX is loving the affirmation from his baby.
anonymous said: JZX is buried under a pile of fat babies and dogs and he’s having the time of his life.
Jin Zixuan, with a fat baby in one arm and a fat puppy in the other: hey a-Cheng who’s your favourite brother-in-law now
Jiang Cheng, who only has Zixuan or Wangji to choose between: shut your fucking mouth and gimme one of those
I have this intense unshakeable belief in the headcanon that all Jin babies are just REALLY fat and REALLY big. totally round. all of them. like teeny little sumo wrestlers… which makes for a hilarious time when Jin Ling is born and Yanli and Zixuan are desperately trying to pass him off as having arrived two months early DEFINITELY NO PRE-MARTIAL SEX WAS HAD NO SIR and Madam Jin is just like [pinching the bridge of her nose] “no, no, of course not, all Jin babies are definitely just That Big, thank goodness for A-Li’s sake that her baby arrived early, don’t ask any more questions”
from this post
when ur boyfriends are super conflict-averse and bad at expressing their anger and u just…….. cannot relate.
LOOK. XICHEN IS TRYING TO BE SUPPORTIVE AND LEARN HOW TO TALK ABOUT BEING ANGRY SO THAT A-YAO FEELS LIKE HE CAN TALK ABOUT IT TOO. HE’S TRYING. (and at least JGY is… being honest?)
mingjue obviously is just there like “…………..are you guys okay”
look, I’m just saying that if xingchen and song lan had survived to be a bickering old married couple, they would have 100% just turned into chirrut and baze, so here’s a sort of star wars/untamed mashup! it wasn’t too difficult to adjust xingchen’s outfit to fit something more like chirrut, but song lan is so neat and particular he was never going to fit with baze’s silhouette, so I just gave him something closer to chirrut’s look too. the accident that took his tongue was what gave him the black marks on his neck, and now he has an electronic device that helps him speak.
Wow your 3zun stuff just makes me *clutches chest* AAAAAAAAGH! (But like in a good way)
I LOVED your last post about ace jc and qs (and lqr! like I feel that so hard lmao) but also have you considered ace Wen Qing? because when I was first watching the show and simultaneously realizing I was ace, I saw her and her whole *does the will smith gesture at everything about her* and immediately decided that she was my ace icon.
huh, I’d never really considered her as ace! I looked at her “oh god why is this teenage boy talking to me” reactions to jiang cheng (vs her turning up in yanli’s room 👀) and was like “oh that’s a big ol’ lesbian”… but thinking about it, the idea of modern AU jc being drawn to her and initially thinking it’s attraction, before realising later when she comes out as ace-lesbian that actually it was SUBCONSCIOUS ACE SOLIDARITY before he even twigged he was ace… hilarious, 10/10 headcanon, I love it.
anonymous said: Jiang Cheng and Qin Su go to a lot of the same functions so they end up being each other’s beards a lot. It happens enough that they’re sort of considering getting legally married for tax benefits and perpetual beard-rights.
this is adorable, although I do ship sangcheng, so I’m just imagining a hilarious AU where jiang cheng and qin su have their beard situation and jc is like “haha maybe we should get married for tax reasons and also to get my mum off my ass about finding a wife” and qin su is like “uhhhhh what about huaisang” and jc is like “??? what ABOUT huaisang???” and qin su is like “well isn’t you dating him the reason you needed a beard in the first place???” and huaisang is just there like “😭😭😭 chengchengggg making out isn’t something Just Bros do”
anonymous said: Jiang Cheng and Lan Qiren have a big “same hat” moment about people being dumb about sex generally and Wangxian being dumb about it specifically. It’s a bit weird.
jiang cheng and lan qiren after making eye contact and having a moment of Accidental Ace Solidarity:
I love how your art shows the untamed characters by their actual ethnicity, and not just the supermodel type. Since East Asian beauty standards are all fair skin, big eyes, thin, small nose (yk, western beauty standards for the most part), we don’t rlly see the small eyes, darker skin, and different nose shapes. And a lot of fan artists (though I like them too!) draw them with the pale skin and button noses too, and they just, don’t really look Chinese? Which is fine I guess, some art styles just don’t rlly follow realistic features. But your art is such a breath of fresh air, with how nice and pretty but NORMAL they look. It’s like seeing a model without photoshop and realizing they honestly look better without being aurbrushed to smooth perfection and I like you so much for that. Thank you ❤️❤️
this message means a huge amount to me, thank you so much for sending it and I’m so glad my artwork makes you happy! as a white artist going into a fandom where all the characters are chinese, I was somewhat anxious about the potential of fucking up and accidentally creating something hurtful/offensive, so I’ve been working pretty much exclusively from photo reference (as opposed to developing my own personal caricatures, which I would usually do in a fandom) and apart from anything else, it’s been really excellent practice at capturing likeness and not getting lazy with my faces!
if I ever do make anything insensitive, please do let me know, and I will do my best to get it fixed and improve in the future!
Hi, it’s the anon who was on episode 30 last time. I finished The Untamed and now my heart is weeping and I feel so blessed that I can look through all of your untamed stuff without spoilers and find happy AU stuff and happy JGY. 😭
ahhhh congrats on finishing! it is absolutely fucking Brutal on the first go round, but I hope you enjoyed it, and I’m glad you can now understand the full context of my cheerful head-in-the-sand fixit AUs!
I feel like JZX is a bit of a disappointment for the gossip industry? Like, JGS had so many scandals and stuff that he was a cash cow for any gossip mag or entertainment show. JZX just talks about how much he loves his wife. And sure he likes expensive things, but it's not like he can't afford it, and he also donates heavily to charities and good causes.
anonymous said: The company pr people breathe a sigh of relief. Jzx accidentally drinks to much at a public event and all he does is talk about how amazing his wife is and how much he loves his kids.
Jin&Sons board of directors: and so Jin Guangshan will be stepping down due to legal issues-
PR team: oh thank god
Jin&Sons board of directors: -and his son Jin Zixuan will be taking over-
PR team: oh thank GOD
anonymous said: i feel like one of the few ways that modern au wwx would actually learn to take care of himself is if like, jyl tells him, “we’re teaching a-ling how to set boundaries and respect them from other people so now ALL of the grown-ups in his life :) have to demonstrate this extremely important skill to him. :) okay a-xian? :)”
wwx: yanli is just talking to me like this because she’s so used to being in Mom Mode now she has a baby she just forgets to turn it off sometimes :)
yanli, who basically raised both of her brothers: ………….. sure
2020 YEARLY ROUNDUP
I know I wrote the “about me” description on this blog in twenty-fucking-thirteen, but the protest still stands: I draw more than just hot bisexual people with babies I swear…
some of them are gay! and some of them have preteens, not babies!
Jiang Cheng and Qin Su are out there living their best lives as the ace aunt and uncle to a pile of niblings.
lan rule #1248: no promiscuity
lan qiren, bewildered by all these horny idiots making bad choices around him:
(I’m not sure how legible the text is at that size so transcription under the cut)
QIN SU - SEX-FAVOURABLE ACE - STRUGGLED A LITTLE WITH HER IDENTITY AT FIRST, BUT IS MOSTLY COMFORTABLE WITH IT NOW.
JIANG CHENG - SEX-NEUTRAL ACE - HAS A LOT OF INTERNALISED APHOBIA TO WORK THROUGH, BUT IS GETTING MORE COMFORTABLE WITH HIS IDENTITY.
LAN QIREN - SEX-REPULSED ACE - HAS NEVER EXPERIENCED INTERNALISED APHOBIA BUT EXPERIENCES AGGRESSIVE EXTERNALISED ALLOPHOBIA.
the world is at war and you’re on the run with a beautiful boy
look at my son
pride is not the word I’m looking for
there is so much more inside me now
oh A-Ling you outshine the morning sun
when you smile I fall apart
basically I saw this photo and was like “I’m gonna use that as reference and then I’m gonna slap “dear theodosia” lyrics on it and it’s gonna emotionally devastate them, and by them I mean me”
I just [clenches fist] think zixuan deserved the chance to be the good dad we all know he coulda been. also, you’ve met wwx’s under-bottom-lip freckle, you’ve met xichen’s upper-eyelid freckle, now meet zixuan’s tiny corner-of-the-mouth freckle that I have somehow only just spotted???
I’m gonna be honest, I have 0 clue why I’m following you because we share a grand total of 0 fandoms but your and your art are so lovely I never ever want to unfollow. Keep up the lovely work
these two have weekly movie nights because it turns out they have almost the exact same taste in tv/film, so anything their respective boyfriends turn their noses up at (or anything they feel they might get, uh, judged for) they watch together, but WHAT IS WATCHED ON MOVIE NIGHT STAYS ON MOVIE NIGHT. movie night is sacred, and secret.
what do they watch? probably lots of documentaries about serial killers, and really weird horror movies, and reality tv. I would LOVE to hear any suggestions about their watchlist if you want to leave that in the tags 👀
some loustat smooches based on that one monchevy kiss in versailles ❤
do not tag as h*rringrove
so I call this one “last man standing” or “survivor’s guilt” (ʘ‿ʘ)
