[cont] And for the Phone Call when Carlos reveals he’s stuck out in the otherworldly desert you could use ‘Everything’s Alright’ (also JCS) you’d just maybe have to tweak Judas’ lines to be less outraged and more worried to fit Cecil? And then I have some songs that I’d really love you forever for putting into the fanfic’s songbook but I’m not quite sure where to put them honestly?? [2/3]
[cont] I’d probably sell my soul for Cecil and Carlos singing [suggestion redacted by order of the Sheriff’s secret police] together if you can fit it in at any point! and if it’s in any way possible or fitting for any future scenes, ‘Macavity’ from Cats would be hella! Maybe Lauren and Kevin singing about Tamika?? I’m not sure, but I bet you could make it fit! Thanks a bunch for writing such an awesome fanfic and I hope my cover of Vithya’s song will be good! Bye! [3/3]
Ooh, Jesus Christ Superstar. I’m afraid there are already songs in place for the part of the Strex showdown you mention, but now that you bring it up, there’s one upcoming scene where Everything’s Alright just might be the song I’ve been looking for. And another song from that soundtrack has been on the to-write list for a while.
Macavity for Tamika-the-terror-of-Strex is perfect, omg. I’m singing it in my head already. (But when they reach the scene of crime, Tamika Flynn’s not there!)
As for Cecil and Carlos…shhh, don’t tell anyone, but you guessed the duet.
(Although, credit where credit is due, I basically just took the girly aesthetic from every other piece of Tamika art I’ve seen. And then obviously the strength is canon ^_^;)
Katherine as Mars, Lynette (still fighting cancer) as Jupiter, Julie (still the voice of reason) as Chibi-Moon, Susan as Moon, Gaby as Venus, and Bree as Mercury. (Mary Alice, naturally, is Pluto.)
I’m still not sure these are the perfect matchups (for instance, I ship Katherine with Bree, but Rei with Minako), but it was fun to draw.
Background is screencapped from (what’s left of) the title sequence.
A set of the younger female characters from the Night Vale/His Dark Materials AU.
Tamika Flynn: twelve going on thirteen. Spoiler alert: by the time she gets out of the library, her daemon’s going to be settled as an African buffalo. (Strexcorp executives tend to have lion daemons. This is how African buffalo deal with lions.)
Intern Dana: for purposes of this story, she’s almost sixteen. Goes through a witch-style separation ordeal, then a time-and-dimension-crossing journey. Her earrings here are anchors; the topmost meaning of the anchor on the alethiometer is “hope.” Daemon: Eustathias, not shown.
Megan Wallaby: a kindergarten-age girl born a couple of months ago, whose body is a detached adult man’s hand. Daemon: Isidorus, unsettled, but always a detached animal’s foot.
Reblogging for updated Dana appearance! (Tags on the original.)
The art on this was fun (especially the guys), but the grown-up ‘Puffs were particularly interesting to cast. (Buttercup was hard. How come Hollywood has so few adult white women with black hair?)
During her wanderings in the desert, Dana accidentally astrally-projects herself into the middle of a Strexcorp medical test. Involving someone who looks way too much like her boss for comfort.
From the His Dark Materials AU, although nobody in this shot has their daemons right now. Dana has a witch’s range, Kevin’s daemon is internal, and Carlo has been a wonderfully efficient gofer for the Strexcorp science division ever since he was severed.
