Years of not having drawn has taken its toll.
A rough sketch of a knight.
I Will Quit Being The Hero is refreshing in a lot of ways but I think my favorite is that Leo is from a technologically advanced human civilization. He was created as a living weapon against demons and monsters, but no matter how the world has changed he is still supposed to be the hero.
Of course, then he says “fuck it” and joins the demons.
However, this idea that our modern society got swallowed by a “fantasy” one is so interesting. The presence of demons changed the course of human history. Cars were changed for horses, electricity for magic, guns for swords. Technology technically went into retrograde because what they had wasn’t effective against the demons, so they had to go back to the things that were.
This just makes me want to know more about what happened as the modern nations crumbled. Did the world governments understand they were rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic? Was there mass panic? Was there an absolute apocalypse, or did people just slowly adapt and abandon the skyscrapers and metal cities?
Guess I’ll have to keep reading.

character boards for my novel 🤗🤗
This is just an angst filled snippet of my book. I love making my poor boys suffer. Please ask if you would like to added or removed from the tag list.
Roland was flushed a light red out of anger. He sneered at Galen who was now sitting on his bed, looking guilty. The prince was equal mix of ecstatic seeing his lover again and also wanting to punch his face.
He took a breath, trying in vain to calm his temper. “Where the hell have you been?”
Galen opened his mouth to respond but was silenced by Roland holding up a hand.
“Actually, don’t speak.” Galen shut his mouth, swallowing thickly.
“Do you know how worried I was? You fuck off to gods know where for three months then show up in my room and expect me to do what? Forgive you instantly because you kissed me?” His became glassy as white hot tears pickled in the corner of his eyes.
Roland ran a hand through his hair, exasperated. Galen sat perfectly still, hands in his lap as he listened.
“I thought you were fucking dead!” He yelled. He hated how his voice cracked. He should be stronger than this. He hated how the tears rolled down his face, hated how Galen stood up, reaching a hand towards him a pained look on his face.
“Don’t fucking touch me,” Roland snapped, jerking his head away wiping his face with his hand. Galen stood in front of him, eyes pleading.
“Please,” He begged, “Please let me explain.”
Roland felt the walls not crumble but disintegrate around him. He would listen to whatever explanation Galen had and forgive him. He was weak for him, loved him with everything he had and it hurt.
“Fine,” His tone lost a lot of its venom. Galen took a sharp breath in before speaking.
“I might have found a way to take down your father.”
Eldi: An adventurous shapeshifter who’s never known what his real face looks like. He grew up in a poor fishing town by the sea. He has little regard for rules, or the consequences of his own actions. Monsters and pirates don’t scare him all– in fact, the only monster to him is the looming threat of social interaction. He’s sneaky and a bit deceptive, but he’s quite a kind-hearted person, deep down. He just has no idea how to trust people, or how to get them to trust him.
Lou: She was born a “prince” of the kingdom of Idlein, the youngest of three children. She’s a trans girl, not out to many people yet. She was prophesied to have visions of the future, yet has never, ever had one. She fakes them instead, crushing down her own guilt for doing so. She’s always felt stuck in the life she was born into, and she’s often frustrated that she’s used like a prop for her father, with her fake visions. She’s sweet, mischievous and very outspoken about what she believes in.
Lyana: The princess of Idlein, Lou’s older sister, and the only member of the royal family who can use magic. She’s an inventor at heart, always working on something new. She spends hours and hours locked up in the tower room she claimed for herself– though she’s expected to be a socialite, she wants nothing more than to hide away, reading hundreds of books on science and technology.
Kai: The prince of Dahikura, Idlein’s western neighbour. The kingdom of Dahikura has a reputation of having a madman for a king, a man whose greatest passion is collecting monsters and doing experiments on said monsters. However, his only son, an adopted one, is beloved by all. He’s wickedly charismatic and quick-witted, a people-person through and through. The opposite of his father, and the perfect heir, Kai has everything set up for him. Or… almost everything.
Vinduri: A scrappy teen girl who’s a surprisingly incredible knight. She’s been best friends with Lyana since childhood, and some suspect she only became a knight to stay close to her. She has a “get the job done” philosophy that often clashes with Lyana’s unorganized way of things, but that has never stopped them from working together like a charm. Though she’s never seen herself as the strongest, or the smartest, Vinduri has one thing going for her- she isn’t afraid of anything. She isn’t even afraid of dying.
Kendra: A pirate, and the newly appointed captain of the SS Xiphias. Loud, brash, and fervently homosexual, she wants nothing more than to see change come about in the world. Her kleptomaniac habits and a disdain for the rich have landed her firmly in the outskirts of society, but she doesn’t mind one bit. If the royals see her as a villain, she might as well be one, right?
