The incredibly magnanimous and sweet-hearted Katie Meeves commissioned this piece of her original character for her fantastical story, and she even gave it a lovely title!! *^*9 Amongst many others who must feel the same, I would love to read her writing. (The heroine is the young girl depicted, who is meeting the spirit of her true soul mate - which is manifested in the form of a blue-eyed snowy owl. Prior to their encounter, the girl was crying - since she ran away from an intense forced betrothal. But what happens next!? Katie, we must know.) Gentle Katie has waited on me to finish her piece for far, far too long!

I've been extraordinarily, unforgivably, stunningly behind in everything! *Sees that it is already December of this yearUndertale Icon - Papyrus *Internally yells at self breathlessly because internal voice doesn't need air*  Oh ma god, Papyrus pls staup 


Y'all must be saints for being this patient with me. I've gotta catch up on work (and respond super-belatedly to everyone) like a Chinese factory worker who has no chill. Temmie icon
