Literature
Takes Two: Fathers and Sons 2
At Lindsey's request, he and Simon spoke little on the journey back to Irwyn Hall. Lindsey wanted to think, and what Digby had said wasn’t something he wanted to share yet.
It was very ugly , but a large part of him had wanted Digby to confirm all the negative things he remembered about Piers. That way it all would have been easy and Lindsey would not need to reform or adjust any opinions. Now, however – Lindsey was struggling. There was no way he could agree with Digby that Piers had been fair to Josy, though he did take the point that there was often an implicit understanding of distance when it came to aristocratic marriages. However he couldn’t help being a little taken by the idea that Piers might not have considered him the failiure of a son he’d always assumed. I suppose there is a little of the child left in all of us who wants our parents to love us, Lindsey thought.
It was dark by the time Lindsey and Simon arrived back at Irwyn Hall. The well-lit land

Literature
Takes Two: Fathers and Sons
Lindsey didn't care much for gentleman's clubs. They felt terribly exclusive, places for the elite to go and wallow in their wealth and superiority. Such places had been much more popular in his father's time; the other gentlemen seated around him in the heavy oak panelled dining quarters he waited in were around the age Piers would have been now, many older. Lindsey half-wished he had asked Simon to accompany him rather than telling him to pick up in a couple of hours. This was really not his scene.
Still, it was the scene of the gentleman he was meeting, and Lindsey had been brought up to care more about the comfort of others than his own. When he'd told Ellie earlier that he was lunching with his godfather, she'd said, "How come you've never mentioned this godfather to me before?"
For a very good reason, Lindsey thought. His godfather, Digby Courtney-Clare, happened to be the father of Theo Courtney-Clare, the toxic editor of Posh People Gossip Magazine.
It was a great shame,

Belated by well over a year, in fact - hello to those of you who remember who I am! As you've probably gathered from my total lack of activity, I'm not really around here anymore, which is a real shame, when I think back to how much joy and support this website has given me in the past. I never intended to leave but I suppose that's what has effectively happened.

Recently, though. I've been lurking about, reminding myself of the good times here, and I thought it might actually be nice to check in for those of you who may have wondered where I've been. The truth is, I haven't drawn a smidgen for about two years now, and neither do I have much desire or motivation to draw, hence the silence here. I'm not sure why I don't draw anymore - partly it's just getting caught up with other things and having less time than I used to, but partly it's because I just don't have a story to tell via artwork anymore. I sort of finished with the Takes Two world with the end of the webcomic, but I think the whole process of that took a lot out of me - so much so, that drawing pictures, rather than a webcomic, seemed like a very weird thing to me and I just couldn't get back into the swing of it, or summon the energy to create a new world to explore.

I hope drawing isn't dead to me forever. I'm sure it's not. But as a storyteller first and artist second, I think when I start to draw again, it'll be because I have a story to tell.

I am *so* impressed with you guys and your art, though. Some of you I've checked up on really blow me away with your perseverence and productivy and improvement - I wish I could match you! It's fantastic that you are continuing to share art and life and I take my hat off to you.

Probably another reason for the drawing silence is that, good news, life has taken a positive turn for me since I vanished. Perhaps that's another reason for silence, I drew partly when I was unhappy to ignore all the bad things going on! I've started a new much more demanding job (one I wish I'd had before I started Takes Two as I think it would have helped me make things more convincing!), I've moved house (no more housemates, hooray) and, perhaps more significantly, I'm getting married (to a man who - oh the irony! - happens to share a name with one of my more notorious male characters who some of you older timers will remember). One thing I've learned is that despite the bad and discouraging things that happen, life CAN fall into place for you, and it can do that very quickly, too! Not to say there are not frustrations and disappointments, but I feel better and more confident in myself these days, and older and wiser!

Anyway, that's where I'm at now. No art, no art on the horizon, but happy in myself. If any of you want to chat more feel free to send me a note if you like (as I said, I am lurking!), otherwise, keep up the good artwork and best wishes to you all! :heart:
