Here’s our Halloween picture for 2019!

The Witch AU was the very big, very clear winner for our poll held earlier this month, so I decided to do something simple, fun, and with a bit of world building involved.

Alkaline and Zeggy, are very different witches.

Alkaline, much like in any universe, has been through a lot. He’s lost his arm, taken damage to his face/eyes (he was able to mostly restore his eyes with magic, and build himself a functioning arm as well) but still has a very positive attitude. He works really hard at his job, is doing well socially and financially, and generally extremely reliable. (Which causes him the same kind of woes we see in the Space universe– lots of expectations, not feeling free to be himself, and generally feeling trapped by the perception people have of him.)

Zeggy, much like any universe, is struggling thru his failures, mistakes, and insecurities. Witches in this world are NOT normally purple, and his purple hue, pointed ears, and antenna are all results of a cursed placed upon Zeggy, as were ANY of his magic skills. He’s extremely bad at magic because of this, and his magic is weak– but still boasts he’s good and finds way to trick any unlucky client or customer he has. He’s similar to Battam in these ways, except for the fact that Battam is ENTIRELY honest and selling good potions, while Zeggy is a total liar and selling bunk products. (By the way, this world and the Solanaceae world are totally different and separate. The magic in this world is more “traditional” while the Sola world has it’s own system.)

A story I’ve wanted to tell with this two, hopefully in VN format, is summarized well in an old ficlet I wrote:

Their journey together had been somewhat brief– meeting in town, agreeing to leave together…

Meeting the witch of the forest, the witch of the air, fighting off deadly creatures, and discovering more about each other…but, that whole time, the cursed witch had lied to the scared witch.

He didn’t know his way thru the forest, he didn’t know their destination, he didn’t know anything– he couldn’t preform any real magic or show off any real skill…

The abilities he boasted were all side affects from his curse; he admitted that now…and yet…

The scared witch held him by the shoulders and forgave him.
From the start he had known; he had seen thru the lies and known the fragile persona in front of him. He knew what secrets looked like, he knew what lies sounded like– he knew it all…and yet…

He had stayed with the cursed witches side. He had traveled with him, ate with him, laughed with him…
“Let’s keep going, we can make it.” He urged. “Together, we can make it.”
Thru tears, the cursed witch thanked him. Over and over. He had never been shown such kindness before.

The scared witch laughed then, “Thank me when we’re safe on the other side of this forsaken maze.”
Pulling himself together, the cursed witch could only utter; “…it’s a promise!”

And yeah, I love the aesthetic I’ve made for these costumes and world. It’s an extremely indulgent AU, just like the Dr.Zeggy and Franken Alky AU is, but that’s also what makes it so fun.

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope you have a good one, and I hope you enjoyed the pics I made this year!
