Lurking Lives and Eating Pies

dramarising:

Lair expansion prices are still stupid.

Being on the run from just about everyone isn’t as glamorous as it sounds.

"Blows to the head are potentially harmful and should not be undertaken lightly. Turn around, sir. Remove your helmet, please. Would twenty minutes unconsciousness be okay?"

(x) Maladict by Bartek Drejewicz
“He was short and quite slim, which was fairly usual in a country where it was rare to get enough food to make you fat. But he was dressed in black and expensively, like an aristocrat; he even had a sword. The sergeant was, therefore, looking worried. Clearly a man could get into trouble talking wrong to a nob who might have important friends. (…) Those clothes cost serious money. Most of the vampire families were highly nobby. You never knew who was connected to who… not just connected to who, in fact, but to whom. Whoms were likely to be far more trouble than your common everyday who.”
               - Terry Pratchett, Monstrous Regiment
“’Good evening, gentlemen! Please pay attention. I am a reformed vampire, which is to say, I am a bundle of suppressed instincts held together with spit and coffee. It would be wrong to say that violent, tearing carnage does not come easily to me. It’s not tearing your throats out that doesn’t come easily to me. Please don’t make it any harder.’
The sergeant pushed himself away from the bar top and took a muzzy swing at Maladict. Almost absent-mindedly, Maladict leaned away from it and then returned a roundhouse blow that knocked him over.”
               - Terry Pratchett, Monstrous Regiment
“‘I’m actually Maladicta.’ She sat back. ‘There! I’ve told someone!’ (…)
‘I thought I did pretty well,’ Maladicta went on. ‘Now, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking: vampires have a pretty good time of it whatever sex they are, right? But it’s the same everywhere. Velvet dresses, underwired nightgowns, acting crazy all the time, and don’t let’s even go near the whole “bathing in virgin’s blood” thing. You get taken a lot more seriously if they think you’re male.’”

"You know, Sergeant, it’s a great shame to see a mind like that wasted. This is not an age of heroes and famous last stands and death-or-glory charges. Do your men a favor and try to tell him that, will you?"
-William de Worde, Monstrous Regiment.

The above quote jogged something in my brain, and I realized William was thinking about his brother dying in a skirmish in Klatch, which is the most subtle saddest thing ever. Have I ever mentioned I’ve never really made finished comics before?
Both of them are tired and kind of cranky and in need of a bath and have seen a bit too much death and the b-word and not seen enough Sacharissa. Drawing Otto on tiptoe was the HARDEST THING gawd. I’m debating whether or not to draw some nsfw-ness as a direct followup to this.

"And yet they keep telling me that House Lannister won this war."

This movie is too damn hilarious for its own good.
