Showboat: Modern-Day Showboat AU by jellyandjamXD Showboat: Modern-Day Showboat AU by jellyandjamXD
At one point, I was playing around with Showboat's appearance and background, and I thought about them being African refugees [Valle as a Northern African refugee (possibly Nigerian) and Bruce and Jack being brothers from the DRC (Democratic Republic of the Congo)], and they meet in a refugee camp in Malawi. During their meeting, they realize that Valle doesn't have anybody to look out for her, so they both decide to protect her by sticking around her, and they start getting to know each other and eventually start playing music together. At some point, they all decide to move to South Africa, and that's where they meet Clive, who's looking to form a musical group. Once he meets them and they play together a bit, they all head to England and that's where things get started. 

But that's REALLY only if this storyline took place in our world and during this time period. Showboat, however, has two different timelines I run with which is classic rock era of our world (the main universe), or my sci-fi world which I'm working on currently. So, yeah. I'm planning to draw main-verse them soon though 'cause I just got some colored pencils!

Thanks! :meow: 
Yeah, it would make more sense. They probably had more siblings and an entire family in the modern-day timeline, but they probably died in result of the political wars and genocides happening during their childhood. For comic purposes, the timeline I draw them in will be the sci-fi one, 'cause I think I'm gonna buckle down with Yves' and her plot and finally draw it out?

Anyway, I'm gonna draw canon Showboat soon, though! Probably this weekend 'cause now I can draw them together all to scale, maybe in cool poses! Idk, just something cute Aww 'Cause honestly, I'm so attached to Ambrose and Valle's relationship in that timeline :happybounce:

I'm ready to draw it, too. I just realized how much school work I've gotta do, but in between, I think I'll be able to draw some things! Either way, in the near future, I'll draw some! :aww:

Omg what's your job? Is it at least fun? (If it's in retail, good luck this holiday season!) 

YES, I'm in college, and tbh it's been horrible, but I'm feeling way better about being in school and I'm so much happier, like, I'm feeling SUPER right now about everything! I have a lunch with a professor this weekend (he's so much fun to talk to, he's impressed with how hard I work, so he invited me to lunch to talk about class opportunities in my academic future :eager:).
