One last headcanon for Fest! Inspired by the prompt: Any character prompt: Write about an unexpected hobby they have. Do others know about it? Why do they like it?
Not many people outside of Q-Branch know it, but one of the Quartermaster’s favorite hobbies is Medieval calligraphy and illumination. It started when his parents took him to see the Book of Kells as a child; he’d been fascinated by intricate decoration and precise lettering. His parents had gotten him a decent beginner’s calligraphy kit as a present the following Christmas and he’d been honing his craft ever since. He’s even joined the local chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism, so he could meet other practitioners (and swap tips & techniques). Q loves the intricacy and precision it requires (and the fact he won’t accidentally blow something up if he makes a mistake) and that it’s a quiet hobby. It’s also fairly portable, so he can bring it with him on a (longer) trip and doesn’t worry if there’s a sufficient internet connection (like he would if he wanted to work on a side coding project).
The minions know about his hobby because Q will present a minion with an illuminated awards certificate when they hit certain milestones, earn a Q-Branch nickname (not easily achieved), or create a particularly useful gadget. R treasures the one that names her “The Lady of Circuitry.”
Keep reading under the cut for examples from the Book of Kells!

Calligraphy Basic Strokes
Quick art study of Pomba Gira Cigana with a touch on Papa Legba. All done in black bik ink pen.
It interests me here that having drawn this with one (singular) black bic pen all of the ink would be the same, but in fact it’s not. Papa’s cigar is discolored as well as his hand in a Smokey yellowish discoloration.
Interesting enough his hand fits as the base foreground of the whole image having everything else, image wise, rise up in the smoke above it (like the smoke created it) and the discoloration really brings home this idea of separation. A feeling that maybe it is papa Legba sharing this story of images.
Was planning on smoothing the edges and closing it with smoke shapes, but never touched it again.
