@h-Jones I have no objections whatsoever to Kester being a soldier 🙂

FINISHED THE STORYBOARD. Aaaaaaah. This took me three days. But I really wanted to get a feel for how this scene would be. Quite happy with how it turned out! I know there might still change a lot while we’re brainstorming but this was so fun! @the-fledgling-artist @h-jones @april-j-rhys @slisby
@theclumsy_lamplighter Aaah I’m sorry I haven’t added Charlotte yet! When I started this you were still changing things. Can’t wait to explore her friendship with Gisette though! :’)
And here they are as still images!

@lin Words and emojis fail to express how great that is.
But wow. Top notch. This is why I signed up. Y’all are gonna kill it.
Out of curiosty, Linnen, Fledge, Hedges, Stairah, and Co.: Did y’all decide on a name yet?
(Or do you still need ideas? 😂)

LIN SDFGHJK THIS TURNED OUT SO AMAZING *the second to last panel is so perfect I can’t express it*
@i-david Honestly we haven’t talked about it much since you left the chat. Wop. I think my preference is Sky’s the limit, but as established earlier I have commitment issues xD

@theclumsy_lamplighter Glad you like it! (:
@the-fledgling-artist AKSDBVGH THANKS!

yoooo also, here’s some concepts 😀
So, I was thinking Charlotte would probably be part of Their Majesties’ Royal Guard, whereas Kester is just going to be a Royal Crusader. Two different things. Kind of like the British Emperial Guard vs. The British Air Force (with Kester being in the air force equivalent, because yk, wings xD).
I think Crusaders are winged military people.
Also, have of those badges don’t even have meanings, they were just the products of me messing around. The colored ones (aside the big one with the “rift”) are probably just nothing, but might be used later for something idk xDD
Charlotte is probably going to have the “Hero’s Badge” because I feel like she’s probably saved people before? And whilst coming up with Kester’s new backstory, I gave him the “honored Ancoran crusader” badge and the “award for brilliance and excellence” badge (top right corner, forgot to label it xD).
The “Never Forget” thing on the flag is because Ancora never wants to forget how they ended up where they are 😉
ACKKKKKK LOOK AT MY HANDSOME BOI
Also, that’s sort of a real badge that exists in the US army because when you run INTO battle, and if you were holding a flag, it would look backwards. (:
Also, here’s a comic page that I did not shade because I’m too lazy:

@catwing 😀 YAY another cat! 😀
<3 Thank you for semi-stalking and enjoying!! I really hope the finished product will be as amazing as the brainstorming sessions have been. XP
OH YEAH MAN.
Kester makes an awesome airforce type soldier. Your art of him in his uniform captures his spirit so much more. <3 This is a brilliant change. Just makes loads more sense. I haven’t read his updated doc yet, but I plan to soon.
Also, I love the gorgeous military badges. Elegant, regal, honorable. <3 And hardcore. *happily punches wall because MILITARY!*
And Kissette dance is adorable. :] Clarion looks very happy pushing him.
@ericawordsmith :] Well you chose well! It is a very good word. *thumbsup*
@lin Oh my word. I’m smiling so hard, and like tearing up a little. <3 I saw the beginning clips, but seeing the full thing like that and just how Kester DIVES at the end there, it’s just really awesome. :] :] All the characters are so well done (your interpretation of Velour was spot on and epic <3) and seeing Basil being hugged by Clarion/on Clarion’s shoulder, and them just protecting eachother like that! Ack. *melts*. So gorgeous. So much work. <3 You deserve cookies and money. *tosses* I can’t wait ’til Charlotte’s added in because I’m guessing she’s going to freak out seeing that happen to her best friend.
BTW??? What is actually happening when Ronan is talking to the squad with his back to her? Like…is he getting ready to obliberate them all? Did he just like throw Gisette across the cavern? I majorly missed out on this part of the chat. XP
