Bugs: [sarcastic] Uh-oh! There goes the band!
Not my finest work, but at this point I'll take what I can get 👌
Sorry I hardly ever post here anymore, but here’s my annual-ish redraw of that honey-gore Toki picture 🍯

Welcome to the MTL Rare Pair Month Challenge!
Starting July 4th all the way to the end of the month, this is a challenge where you can write, draw, or create anything really only based on rare pairings!
As doing daily challenges may not possible for some, I am including weekly challenges!
Each week has a theme, and you can use that however you want to! You can replace a day’s theme with a weekly theme, write one fic per weekly theme each week, center a theme around the challenges, anything you want! How you complete this challenge is up to you, but this is just another challenge that I’ve decided to include to either make things harder or easier for everyone :D
Note: While these pairings are excluded, you are allowed to write OT3s of these popular ships (Ex: Charles, Pickles, and Nathan). The decision to exclude these pairings was based on AO3’s relationship tags (the pairings with over 100 fics) and just general fandom knowledge.
Skwistok (Skwisgaar Skwigelf/Toki Wartooth)
Nickles (Nathan Explosion/Pickles the Drummer)
Narles (Nathan Explosion/Charles Foster Offdensen)
Chickles (Charles Foster Offdensen/Pickles the Drummer)
I've created an AO3 collection for you to put your works in and see others' entries! For an official link, here it is! https://archiveofourown.org/collections/MTL_RPM_2021
When you edit your works, make sure to add this to Collections: MTL_RPM_2021
Can I post content somewhere else other than Tumblr/AO3?
Yes, you can! I might only see the challenges on tumblr, AO3, and Instagram but you can always double post to get more traction!
What is the hashtag?
please use the tag #MTLRarePair2021! (Optional but encouraged!)
Do I have to do all 31 days/Do I have to complete the weekly challenges?
It’s all entirely up to you! If you want to do one over the other, both, and/or work on them separately it’s up to you! You are not obligated to do all 31 days or all 4 weekly challenges. The point of this challenge is to have fun so where’s the fun in being stressed out?
Can I write crossover pairings? (I.E Nathan Explosion x Eddie Briggs from Brutal Legend) Self-inserts/OC x character pairings?
Of course! It wouldn’t be a rare pair event without some crossover or OC pairings now wouldn’t it?
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me, but remember there is no limit to this, just do what will make this fun and easier for you! Good luck!! (Any questions will be tagged as #MTLrarepair2021qanda so be sure to check that out if you wanna see if your question has been answered!
Week 1 Theme:
Tarot Cards: Tarot Cards can answer many things but will they even ask? With this week’s theme, you can write a fic centered around tarot cards, a tarot reading, or a single tarot card that sticks out to you! If you have a deck of your own, maybe you can use the cards to guide your fic?
Day 4: the first… Day 5: Arranged Marriage/Fake Dating Day 6: Heroes/Villains Day 7: Sunrises/Sunsets Day 8: Monster AU/Magic AU Day 9: Soulmate/Enemies to Lovers Day 10: Mutual Unrequited Love
Week 2 Theme:
Fear of The Unknown: Season 4 especially seems to slowly shift to this theme for the viewers; what will happen to Dethklok? What is Project Falconback? Take this challenge as a reflection or confrontation of what characters may have to face, whether it’s with the prophecy or with their own relationships. Alternatively/additionally, you can use this to write on pairings you haven’t before!
Day 11: Deleted Scenes (This would be different from Day 18 as this is more focused on adding to an episode, rather than rewriting an episode)
Day 12: Kidfic/Kid AU Day 13: Coffee Shop AU/Tattoo Shop AU Day 14: Lies/Honesty Day 15: Dating App/Random Meeting Day 16: Rainy Day/Beach Day Day 17: Road Trip/Night Drives
Week 3 Theme:
Changing of the Seasons: As old as time, the seasons change one after another without fail. Will their feelings be as long as summer nights or will it slowly fade over time by the time fall rolls around? This week’s challenge can do anything with the seasons, metaphorically or physically doing something like raking leaves or attending local winter festivals.
Day 18: Episode Rewrite Day 19: Blind Date/Double Date Day 20: Sick fic/lazy day Day 21: Power Outage/Stranded Day 22: Prom/Wedding Day 23: And there was only one bed…./Actually, there are two beds Day 24: Amnesia/Reminiscing
Week 4 Theme:
Emotional Turmoil: Can you tell that a show is lacking in something so much that there needs to be a challenge about it? Definitely. This final challenge can really amp up the angst or fluff you may desperately crave. Will their emotions run high in an ever-changing environment? Is the weight of their past or future finally making them break? Or will they finally confess their feelings when it’s all too late?
Day 25: Pre-klok/Post-DSR Day 26: Angst/Fluff Day 27: Secret Dating/Undercover Day 28: Stargazing/Star watching Day 29: Mistakes/Fixing Day 30: The Last… Day 31: Free Space
sleepy gator. don't wake him
when the new metalocalypse movie comes out it’s over for you hoes
I love Knubbler’s robot eyes because like yeah everybody obviously has changes of expression depending on their feelings but his eyes are typically green but anytime he’s annoyed or angry they just get redder like he’s going to go full fucking Terminator mode on Murderface and it’s insanely amusing to me.

I get the feeling that if it wasn’t for the others that Toki would just wear pink constantly and like short cut tops that show off his abs.
Literally cannot believe the amount of attention my mtl art is getting rn the gays stay winning I love you guys you can feel free to send me requests <3
Summary: Skwisgaar is drunk, and Toki is more than happy to play babysitter.
Notes: Returning to My Roots with some angsty Skwistok. Feels good. Title comes from a Stevie Wonder song because uuuuhhhhhhhhhhhhh Stevie Wonder rules.
I love how they just nailed the fact most people from the Midwest are polite even when we’re like pissed off we will still be weirdly polite about it.
My first try at nickles! This is a bit canon divergent, I suppose, but I’ve been working on it for days, and I’m pretty proud of it!
"You slept with her?" The disgust in Pickles's voice couldn't possibly have been thicker.
He hadn't, but Nathan didn't have it in himself to correct the assumption. He had only gone down on Abigail, there had been no actual sex. He had plans to change that, of course, but Pickles didn't need to know that. It's not like the two of them were official, anyway. Nathan felt a little bad about all this, but what else was he to do? He wasn't in a relationship with Pickles. He would sooner die than say he was. That was shitty, he knew. Pickles deserved better. Nathan took a long pull from the bottle of tequila he had been carrying around for most of the night. It made him a dark person, Pickles had once told him, but that seemed fitting for this particular conversation. As evenly as he could manage, Nathan said, "Yeah."
When he offered the bottle as a peace offering to Pickles, it was slapped it aside, thunking noisily along the stone floor, and Nathan glared rather impotently at the spreading puddle it left. Voice low and lethal, Pickles hissed, "You're a piece of shit, y'know that?"
Sighing, Nathan settled on the sofa at Pickles's side, their thighs touching, thoroughly relieved when Pickles didn't pull away from the contact. There was hope, at least. Was it foolish to hope? He was a fool either way. "It just happened," was his only defense.
"The second you were alone with her?" Another exaggeration, but again, Nathan didn't correct him. Pickles snatched a half-empty beer bottle off the table, downing it in one go. It was warm, and he wrinkled his nose at it. "I thought she was off-limits." Those last words came on a sneer.
"You tried, too," Nathan said, taking another long swig before Pickles tore the bottle away from him.
"I pretended to try!" He had gotten a kiss in, and that had been enough to through both Abigail and the boys off their trail. There were few things more important than keeping their dirty little secret hidden from the rest of the band. He couldn't let it ruin Dethklok like his affair with Tony had ruined Snakes n' Barrels. He couldn't. Pickles took a long drink of pilfered tequila before he snarled, nearly choking, "This is bullshit."
Nathan kept his eyes down, studying his chewed-down, black-painted nails as if they were the most fascinating thing in the world. Idly pulling at what remained of his left thumbnail, Nathan muttered, "I know."
That was clearly not what Pickles wanted to hear, and he chucked the bottle end-over-end at the flatscreen. Though the bottle itself didn't break, the screen did, splintering off into half-a-hundred colors before it went black with a distressing hiss.
In a desperate attempt to keep himself from saying something they would both regret, Nathan grabbed at another of the bottles littering the table, tossing it back fast enough to set his throat afire. How many bottles were there now? It seemed ludicrous that so many of them were just lying around like this.
"This is bullshit, Nate." The hurt in Pickles's voice was nearly overwhelming, and Nathan kept his gaze set on the myriad of bottles scattered across the table, his knuckles white around the one in his hand. "The fuck were you thinking?"
Nathan bit at his lower lip, finally finding it in himself to meet Pickles's acid-green eyes head-on. He wouldn't apologize in words-- He couldn't-- but Pickles knew him. Pickles would recognize the regret in his eyes. He wouldn't make excuses. He would lay himself bare and let Pickles judge him as he saw fit.
Pickles didn't seem to appreciate that, judging by the irate curl of his lip. He spat, "Who the fuck are you trying to fool?"
Tasting blood, Nathan admitted, very softly, "Myself."
