I FINISHED IT!! 😃
This is the scene when Serine first meets Willow in his garden. Now Imma tell you guys something I didn't say on my Twitter post (I have a Twitter btw). What's happening here is something that dragons can do in my world called soul reading. It is the act of looking through one's eyes into their soul and well reads it (obvious name is obvious) but dragons do this to find a person's 'true name' or their 'soul name'.
This name is something that makes their soul stand apart from others. Willow's name is Willow because of his connection to his Spirit Tree.
And Serine's name is Master of Two Souls...Imma just let you try and figure that out 😈😈😈

This fluffy boy is Willow the Tree Spirit. Unlike nymphs that are born from their trees, Dragon Tree Spirits are gifted their trees to protect. These trees are in danger because they bleed Life Fire instead of sap and Life Fire is the power that gives life to everything. Yeah it's powerful and wanted by some bad people who want to play God...because Life Fire can raise the dead or even give life to abominations.
*pants* And that's only a small part of my universe. There's SOOOOOOOO much 😖😖😖😖

My sister's awesome in the weirdest way. I told her that I was having a depressive spell again and, before she left for work, she brought this little guy to my room. His name's Jesse and she told him that if he saw this depression guy that he's supposed to attack him, go right for his throat. Hahaha most people just tell you it's alright or it'll pass but no Hanna just has her stuffed animal stand guard over me while she's gone 🙂🙂

When I'm going through a bad depressive episode, I wear this as a reminder that I'm here and I matter.
The ring is from the first Pride I went to after coming out as a transman. That was the first day I felt totally here without holding anything back. I'm here.
The chain is a gift from my sister Hanna. She's the only person I have in my life that I can say without a shadow of a doubt loves me with everything she has. She reminds me that the only reason she's still alive is because she wanted to be here for me more than she wanted to die. I matter.

This is me faceplanting into the couch dramatically because for the past TWO DAYS I've been trying and failing to figure out an extremely important piece of lure for my story.
About two seconds after this, my writing Yoda aka my big sister was talking about my world and said something that just made everything click together...TWO DAYS OF FAILURE and my sister figures it out in minutes?! I'm so TILTED!!
Buuuuuuut thanks, sis 😙
