UPDATED: 14 June, 2017 (important stuff)

Back in 2013, I asked my spiritual daughter KyloRensMom if she could draw me with Jack Frost from the Dreamworks movie Rise of the Guardians, because... well, because my heart had chosen Jack to be my son. A love so strong that it hurts - sometimes, having fantasy/imaginary children hurts a lot, because you can't hug them in real life. They're only real for the heart.

Frosty Mama by KyloRensMom

Like with every love, it enters a phase of 'habit' after a while, when the bond has grown strong and the other's presence in your life has become something you give for granted. Which is normal, but sometimes the initial strength of the bond comes back with all its fierce power - especially when you experience separation or a prolonged time of intense depression.

That is the phase I'm going through now, and it feels like the right phase to (1) "feel" Jack Frost so strongly again in my heart and imaginary life, and (2) work on his "representation" OC for my "transferred motherhood" process, which I explained in detail here: On Motherhood and YOUR Characters -> (As of June 14) This is changing somewhat because I decided it hurts too much to force myself to stay invisible just so the fandoms don't get upset with me for sharing my own real feelings. While the "transferred motherhood" process is there to stay with fans' OCs/FCs, and it definitely stays in the overall storyline so I can keep it an original work (with all the freedom that follows), I'm going to talk about and share my motherlove to the characters from fandoms again, in art and writing - sparingly, but I'm gonna do it... for I have the same right as any other fans to be and love. (Thanks pika and TwistedxSaiyan for the reminder :heart:)

And about my motherlove for Jack Frost (and also Pitch Black and Sandman by this point), it's so strong and so real my heart was pretty clear about it a couple nights ago: it asked me to tell William Joyce (the author of Guardians of Childhood books, which the RotG movie is based on) about it on his Twitter and Instagram. I went all "NO!" at first and I tried to push the thought away, but how long can you resist a call of the heart, especially when it tells you in the face that "if other fans tell him about pairings, your innocent motherlove for Jack should be in the immediate clear"? There must be a little army commandant inside of my chest, but I generally trust its wisdom... so I did. I hope W. Joyce doesn't mind. ^^;


Who's Jacob "Iceheart" from Meravilla (The Berter Family)?


He's this guy:

Img 20170607 005456 by RoboMommy

Jacob is my original character and he's meant to be (1) a "representation" of Jack Frost in my Berter Family stories, and (2) a character that's closely linked to the imaginary world of my childhood, Fantaland, that I created when I was four.

Meravilla is a planet that was once a paradise: people kept their inner child alive and both adults and children adhered to a lifestyle of innocence, goodwill, and hope. But those who had been on visit on outside worlds had returned with ideas of manipulation, self-interest and greed that had slowly corrupted people's hearts to such an extent the Keepers of Innocence, a hundred of magical beings scattered all around the planet - who were created by their Mother Goddess in the down of times to protect Meravilla's very adoration for Innocence, and their lifestyle - in a last attempt to save her people from the corruption of hearts, built a fortress that extended for kilometers, surrounded by cold snow storms, strong wind and fog to keep the place away from anybody who didn't have enough of a pure heart and hope to find beauty even in that unkind weather - and reach the fortress. The fortress itself is only a "container": inside of it, the visitor enters another dimension, a small world where the original beauty of Meravilla stays intact, with all its magic, its wonders and all the adults and children who chose an uncorrupted life.

Stationed at the entrance Gates, Jacob is one of the six Keepers who decide who can enter and who cannot. He and the other Gate Keepers are nicknamed "Iceheart", because they were born as creatures of the snow (to survive the cold environment their mission demands) and because of the sword-like scepter they carry, that gives them the power to scrutinize visitors' hearts and find out whether they are worthy of accessing Innocence City through the Gates. Jacob also has the power to share thoughts and memories in the form of pure meanings and images via the touch of his fingertips (to another person's), and he can fly like all the Keepers.

So Jacob (later shorted as "Jake" in the stories) is the union of my childhood dream world and RotG's Jack Frost, and the journey I take in the story, as a mom and as a child-at-heart, through the secret Innocence City, is very much one of self-identity for me, not only one of motherhood. Because being "a mother soul with a child's heart" is who I am, and the reason why I often feel so outside of this world and society. (Not that I care, I am who I am, I can't and won't change to make others happy - and I took a sort of oath to myself that I'd protect my own inner child forever.)

If you decide to read this story when I publish it, you will learn more about myself as a person. :aww: Of course, this is also the story of how I met Jacob "Iceheart" and became his mom. :heart:

I'm working on this story on the side, because my main effort these days is to continue writing The Undeserving (Rolamaton Tale) and fix the old Rolamaton stories. I'm so inspired and in love, though, I feel it won't take so long to get this one done.

Thanks for reading! :hug:

Note: in the public version of the story, I'm going to remove all passages where mom-child bonding through breastfeeding is involved - because Jacob is not a baby and not even a toddler, but he looks eighteen - so the story is pretty much free of "off-putting" scenes (unless you mind cuddling, too - but sorry, I'm going to keep that one!). All my friends and people who respect and understand my own (innocent, strictly mom-child bonding act) breastfeeding symbolism - and why I don't put age labels on it - are welcome to Note me so I can send them the uncensored version of the story. Thank you!
A Berter Family update, pretty much. ^^

Aw, that is just so very darling~

I think having such feelings and even having a fantasy world is important.

Since I have DD, I created a fantasy world at a very young age to escape the constant
abuse I was going through, but even I know the values and wonders such imagination and
creativity can be.

What you have is a truly wonderful thing, to feel such emotions and strong bonds, even for characters.
Don't lose that and don't ever feel ashamed, cause it's nobody's business but your own and from
what I've talked with you about, I think you're a wonderful and loving soul and that is just beautiful. : ) :hug:

Your comment moved me so much, dear... :happycry:

Thanks for your beautiful words, and for meaning them. :heart: I'm glad to hear you had a fantasy world as a little child to escape the abuse - imagination can truly save lives. I wasn't abused home, but I was bullied at school, told I didn't have a right to exist and ignored as if I really wasn't there (a few times, even physically abused). Imagination and fantasy worlds made the difference, and I'm happy to know they saved you, too. I hope life will only be more and more beautiful for you in the years :hug:

My motherlove is so real it hurts, sometimes. Even in real life, since the spiritual children my heart adopted all live in other countries and I haven't been able to travel for years due to family and health impediments, and financial up-downs. I can meet them one day, at least, but I can't with characters, so all I have is imagination. But I wouldn't trade my motherlove for anything else - I love them and it's all that matters. They are real for my heart and that's all the reality I need. :heart:

You're such a sweet person, Tabitha. I'm so happy we met :huggle:

P.S. W. Joyce "liked" my tweet on Twitter about my mommylove for Jack - and a "like" is a little thing, but it means so much to me :')

*Hugs tightly*

When I write, I try to be as honest and truthful as I can, as
that is just who I am, as I find beauty in life where others would
rather step over it.
Back in 2010, I was almost killed in an accident, so I have taken
a different view on life, teaching myself to be more open minded and
opening my heart and stop being scared of certain things.
So it's allowed me to see the beautiful souls of others, who truly are
amazing people, which you are one of them.
I am sorry, that you were bullied, as that is just terrible,
however I am glad that fantasies were something you could turn to
and allow you to be yourself and grow.

Aw, thank you : )  I try. :hug:

N'aww that's amazing! I'm so happy for you! :D  :heart:

*hugs back* :cuddle: You are a beautiful soul too, my dear. I'm sorry to hear you went through so much, but you were so strong like that, opening your mind and heart to the souls of others. Thank you so much for so honestly appreciating me as a person with all my feelings :happycry: I admit this is what I long for the most in life, to be seen and accepted the way I am (yeah, that kind of bullying from my past left a wound that has never completely healed). So... thank you. :hug:

Aww thank you! :D I think W. Joyce's such a sweet and loving person, too. I'm glad I obeyed my heart about this.

I see :) Same here, but I'm trying to remember as many stories and settings I created as a kid to make them into fairy tales for a book. And Meravilla has some of those settings and stories (though not everything).

If you'd like to share a few details about your worlds, feel free to Note me :heart:

He looks so cute, you did a great job with his design and backstory. Plus go imaginary worlds!

Thank you so much! :happycry: Happy tears I wanted to make him as original as possible while still keeping a few traits I love about Jack Frost - that he can represent him without being linked or too similar to him. Jacob's backstory is really strongly connected to the way my inner child sees the world. I'm happy you like both design and backstory! x3

Imaginary worlds make life more beautiful :heart:
