A Night in Procyon.
Sometimes, I find that my will to try a more complicated piece is hampered by my possession of only a finnicky USB mouse and a quasi-legal copy of Photoshop plugged into a really tiny laptop.Only now that the piece is saved and posted am I able to tell I drew on the wrong layer doing shadows at some point and completely bisected the shorter figure’s legs…
Anyways… This is Liste and Birdgette. A unicorn engineer pretty-boy who lives in Procyon (a city of steamworks and infringed rights) - and a really tall and pretty masculine noblewoman with a slough of bad habits triggered by a failed arranged marriage and a nearing thirty-seventh birthday, respectively.Underneath the moonlight silhouette of a great big Yagi-Uda radio antenna boom, they exchange awkward chitchat on forced DNA donations, awkward and fruitless attraction, and how lovely the moon looks tonight.
Or maybe they’re just spitting on orcs. I don’t know.
Korengal Valley | دره کورنگال
The Korengal Valley, inhabited by the Pashai people of Afghanistan, is situated in the Pech district of Kunar province in eastern Afghanistan.
The valley has been dubbed the Valley of Death by American soldiers and Western media because of the high death toll surrounding civilian and U.S. forces casualties. Photographer Tim Hetherington has captured some spine-shivering moments where U.S. forces drop a white phosphorus bomb on a village (fourth photo from the top), and where a 500 pound bomb is dropped towards yet another village by U.S. forces (second photo from the bottom). [x]
In 2010, U.S. forces withdrew from the valley after a conclusion that “the United States had blundered into a blood feud with fierce and clannish villagers who wanted, above all, to be left alone”. [x] Artillery and airpower has time and again been proven to be counterproductive in dealing with insurgency because its use alienates the very population the U.S. is claiming to secure. In the end, the counterproductive Korengal Valley Campaign resulted in a Taliban takeover of the valley. [x]
The troops who patrolled the valley for five years regularly called for mortars containing white phosphorus to be fired to shield them from Taliban attack. Leaked documents have revealed more than a thousand reported instances where U.S.-led forces in Afghanistan have made extensive use of white phosphorus in densely-populated areas, like in one of the photographs above. [x] However, white phosphorus gassing was only a fraction of the violence that inflicted the valley—raids, airstrikes, combat, bombs and insurgent attacks were a part of the bigger picture.
“Everybody hates them in the valley. They shoot at people, they raid our houses and kill our women and children.”
—Haji Nizamuddin, a tribal elder from Korengal [x]
Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan on November 16, 1581
This painting depicts the historical 16th century story of Ivan the Terrible mortally wounding his son Ivan in a fit of rage. By far the most psychologically intense of Repin’s paintings, the Emperor’s face is fraught with terror, as his son lay quietly dying in his arms, blood dripping down the side of his face.

I’m trying to match ‘em all up:
Lamb, Iola, Mina, Halo’s Mixwitch, May, Okay, and Bael.
And either a sleepy Moga or May in the distance. U u U
