So! I utterly failed at More Joy Day, but the weather didn't - even if it's raining today, it SNOWED yesterday, all is forgiven - and [personal profile] idriya didn't, either! I am in awe of her persistence; it has been over a year since I accidentally wrote almost 20k about the vanished mothers of A:tLA, and she steadily produced portraits for every single woman!

The final four: Kang Mashei, An Li, Lady Ilah, and Yue. )

:D :D :D :D :D Flying Blossoms was actually kind of difficult for me to write, because what it basically amounts to is TINY TINY pieces of a couple dozen AUs and backstory fics, and so if I had not had [personal profile] idriya to talk me down, they would each have been 200k and none of them would be finished. /o\ But she rewarded me, as always, with some really gorgeous artwork. ♥♥♥♥♥

YAY ART YAY! I cannot even tell you how hard [personal profile] idriya worked on these - I may have mentioned somewhere in my notes that she actually wrapped herself in a sheet to get the cloth in some of these right. That is dedication. I am so, so, so unbelievably lucky to practically have a pet illustrator of my very own, and I owe her big time for all her help and encouragement, whether it comes in the form of gorgeous digital paintings or incredibly irritating nagging about when I'm going to send her more fic. ♥♥♥♥♥ Best sister ever.

But, onwards: art! She did six pictures, each of one character as one of the cards in Gaius Helen's tarot deck. HOW COOL IS THAT.

If I did not have to work I would spend all day staring at them with cartoon hearts in my eyes! How so awesome?
