some characters designs I’ve been working for a short story/light novel Bell’s working on called The Prison Tower! they are still in their semi-rough stages (theo is still NAKED… dunno what to put him in yet), but here they are if you were wondering what the characters in the story looked like!
Ideally the finished product for the story will have a few ILLUSTRATIONS so lets hope all goes well for that. :>
If you aren’t reading it yet, go do it now and send her nice messages
and yell about the vast amounts of tangible ust
she just posted the newest chapter here!

The Prison Tower 6/8
Theo slept for a long time that night.
It was like the first night that he slept after Gabriel bandaged his hand. Theo slept deeply, peacefully, silently. There were no dreams, no lingering feelings of anxiety, no more muddled feelings around his head. His stigma was quiet tonight. His thoughts were quiet, too.
Theo woke up in the early morning to the sun streaking the early morning sky and the birds chirping in the trees. He did the early morning guard shift until the sun was high in the sky, which was around the time Sven woke up and brought Theo breakfast up to the guard loft.
If we can’t write diversity into sci-fi, then what’s the point? You don’t create new worlds to give them all the same limits of the old ones.
Jane Espenson (from interview with Advocate.com)\
I dunno how many which ways this needs to be said
I don’t reblog this sort of stuff often (social justice-related I guess, I like to keep the blog fun and not thought provoking), but I really think this quote is something great, especially if you’re into writing.
Basically, Sci-Fi as a medium is just another way to represent our present day world. It’s always been like that, the genre was created as a mirror to reflect back on present day through an exaggerated lens. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t be creative with it!
Hollywood (which I think this quote is attributing to) doesn’t care if Sci-Fi has the same white dude leaders, the lame lady side characters, and the same tired tropes, because it’s safe. Hollywood is extremely safe. A lot of writers play it safe. It’s what we’re used to, nobody is gonna complain about it, and it sells. Limits on diversity are safe for investors and audiences alike.
But really, Sci-Fi is so lame when you play it safe, isn’t it?
Have fun with what you write, and think outside the box!

The Prison Tower 5/8
Theo ran to the tower like his legs were on fire.
He had no idea how long he had been running for. He was just moving as fast as he could, his lungs and throat raw. The tower was so far away, and he was just running along the horse path like he had a chance. Like he could gain an advantage. He just willed himself forward, running in the black night, staring at the horizon with the single thought of seeing the tower again.

Hope to see you there!
ARH SDCC MEETUP?
Anyone going to comic con?? this is Bell and I’s first time going, and since we’re going as attendees I’m wondering if anyone was interested in a tiny ARH meetup! maybe give away a few buttons…
I’m thinking on Saturday? We can also meet outside of the convention so it’s free for anyone who doesn’t have a pass.
IF YOU ARE GONNA BE IN SAN DEIGO AND INTERESTED, PLEASE REPLY YOU MAY GET FREE SHIT
Prison Tower PSA
I’m retconning the name of one of my characters in the Prison Tower.
Not for any plot-related reason. Just because of this, mostly.
From now on, Sten will now be Sven.
Thank you sister for pointing this out.
Apologies to everyone else.
The Prison Tower 4/??
“You’re up early.”
Theo didn’t bother turning around as Sven yawned his way into the loft. He continued to stare straight through the window, pupils shrivelling into dots as he gazed unblinkingly at the obnoxiously beautiful morning outside the tower.
“Lovely morning, isn’t it?”
