Even More Story/background!! XD (warning, it's very rough, just my replies to questions) (i'll write a good copy after) [link] -- about daydreams, where the dreams come from, how the subconscious and concious worlds relate to each other, and life cycle of the unicorns. Seine is a dream-catching unicorn~ <3
A little bit of story if you're curious! ^ u ^ She lives in a subconscious world, which is an alternate version of the real world. If she's in an area where people are mostly awake, then her world is really dark and shadowy. Only her horn and tail provide light for her to see by. (it's a blue dream-light) She has good night vision though! This is important because sometimes she doesn't have many dreams in reserve from the previous night, so her tail and horn glow really faintly.
At night, when most people go to sleep, her world begins to light up with small glowing butterflies. These butterflies are dreams! Seine catches them by simply touching them with her gloved hands. The more dreams she catches, the bigger her tail gets and the more brightly her horn and tail glow. Her purpose is to make sure the dreams are pleasant. She looks for faults in the dream butterflies. The ones with broken wings or missing antennae are the ones that she is supposed to destroy by crushing them before they dissolve into her hand and get added to her dream reserve in the tail. Sometimes she makes a mistake and that's when you get a dream that doesn't make sense.
In her unicorn form, she will go to the real world to visit each sleeping person and give them a dream by moving her horn near their forehead. A glowing butterfly will emerge and then enter through the person's face. more art by me of Seine
Ceros is a dark alicorn. He leads nightmares away from people as they sleep~
A little story if you're curious: Ceros is basically a watcher over the dreamers. He will attack night mares (dark shadowy horses) that try to ruin people's restful sleep. Unlike Seine, he lives in the real world, not the unconcious world. He is usually in his dark pegasus form when he is fighting the night mares. He is in his human form when people are generally awake and the number of night mares roaming about is low enough that he can corral them one by one (there's a night mare ranch! LOL IDK! ; 7 ; omg, he's now a cowboy?! @ u @a )
Their relationship with each other are as good friends. (for now? ;DD whahaha) They don't really get to see each other much since Seine is busy catching dreams while ceros fights off the nightmares.. They do get to hang out a bit when most people are awake. Seine is talkative and likes to talk about people's peculiar sleeping styles which she observes while delivering dreams, and Ceros is a good listener and patient, listening to her blabbering. :3 There are other dream catchers and night mare wranglers in the world. They operate around the world. Sometimes the unicorns are moved to work in another part of the world, and sometimes Seine and Ceros have new coworkers. more art by me of Ceros
Click their names to see their art collections! =3 Poupourri, the Mime Spider, the Magician Riela, the Lion Tamer Elise, the Tightrope Walker (newcomer!) Anton, the Drummer Ai and J'aime, the Twins ((CLICK THE IMAGES BELOW TO SEE THEIR FULL DESCRIPTIONS)) So I have these Travelling Circus Troupe characters, and the ones you see here are the literal versions of their usual characteristics. Poupourri is usually chatty when she's not acting as a mime. But here, her voice box has been removed so she really can't talk. Age 15 Yellow-green hair Pink eyes Spider is a kind travelling magician who recruits the outcasts into his show. His name refers to his many "catches". However, he's simply looking out for others. Here, he's actually part-spider, with multiple pupils and long lower canines like spider mandibles. (Spider Spider is a travelling magician. He gets the nickname Spider because he is always "catching" stragglers -- adolescents who have troubles in their lives and are very unhappy. He lets to let them escape from their real lives for a short time as they help him perform in the travelling show. He hopes they will open up and accept that they have the power to be in charge of the show that is their lives.
age ⁞ 27 eyes ⁞ red hair ⁞ light blue) Riela is a young lion-tamer whose father was killed during a circus performance, in an accident that involved stampeding animals. She tends to act tough and has a pet lion who accompanies her frequently. Here, she has uncontrollable outbursts of anger and is really hostile to anyone who approaches her. (age 14 Amber yellow eyes Pink hair) Elise is a tight-rope walker. She suffered the tragic loss of her family due to illness, and is estranged from her parents. Here, she is obsessed with making things balanced, unlike how unbalanced her life is, with all the abundance of sadness. She teeters on sanity and madness, life and death, as she walks across the tight-rope. Age: 25 Hair: lavender Eyes: silver-grey The twins, Ai and J'aime have always been bickering twin sisters. They had their hair stuck together in glue one day and it could not be washed out. So, a haircut needed to be done to separate the two. But since they each have a huge sense of pride and competition, neither will give in and initiate the haircut. So over the years, their hair grew longer and longer,while continuing to be stuck at the ends. Here, the twins are conjoined, so they are actually inseparable. Age 19 Red-orange hair Golden yellow eyes Anton is a drummer. When he was young, he was lost in a marketplace. Already feeling fearful from not seeing his grandmother anywhere, he began running through the crowds and looked for her. He suddenly stumbled in front of a butcher, chopping up his meats, which severely frightened the young boy. And then Anton shut his eyes to the world, afraid of what he might see. Spider found Anton wandering the streets one day, with his eyes still closed. He had some mice following him, squeaking when Anton walked near an obstacle. Spider gave him a drum set so he could at least enjoy playing with something he could hear. In the troupe, Anton and his mice go through obstacles while playing the drum and with his eyes closed of course. Here, he actually has no eyes to see with. (age 14 Light brown hair Yellow-green eyes) i need consistent styled examples wow~ this took me a long time to finish but I'm really proud of it! *^ 7 ^*
