A Skeksis Valentine by SkekLa A Skeksis Valentine by SkekLa
Yes indeed, as you read there in the title: It's valentine's day, even for the skeksis!
As you see, the Illustrator and the Chamberlain don't have it easy to express each other any sort of affection when tere is a strong imperial LAW against mating.
The Emperor doesn't want any newly arrived competitors to the throne and so all of such activities are strictly forbidden.
This does not imply however that most of his courtisans don't dodge this law now and  then as much as they would dodge any other of the commandments he imposed! XD

In this case, there was time for a mere innocent *if any skesis may be called innocent at all...XD* nuzzle back in the Library as the Scrollkeeper's vigilant *and myopic* eyes were momentarily  fixed in a diffreent thing.

So...I think there is a chink of tenderness even in the darkest beings. Skeksis to me are no exception to this rule as you probably already know :;):

I hope you'll enjoy it!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY TO ALL!

X3 They make a great pair! Plus I think they're both a positive influence on each other.

Indeed they are! 
SkekSil gets his hotheadedness a bit stifled by SkekLa's influence whenever he wants to take any too-risky "move", and SkekLa herself feels reassurred by her social skills and his protocol-savyness (of which she sometimes lacks severely)
Also they tend to help each other quite much, which actually keeps them both safer before any issue ;)

INDEED!!!!!
Certain skeksis can get clingy when *rarely* showing affection!!!

Somehow this seems perfectly in keeping with Chamberlain's personality. I love it!

And I completely agree about bits of kindness even in dark beings. And for all that the Skeksis are corrupted, they still show some signs of compassion at times :)

Light and laughter,

OH, It's great to see you like it and think he kept in character even if showing up as more tender than usual! ^^

OH YES!
Even dark creatures can have their manner of kindness or sympathy.
*If you'd like, you could read a story I once wrote...It's called "the Cracking" and it's nested in my Dark Crystal folder, under subfolder named also "The cracking"...that thingy concerns precisely that, it dwells on kind-of-philosophical debate of the skeksis being able to actually FEEL other than just rage and greed...
If you read, you'll see ;)

Maybe you'll like it!

Hihh she IS!
Being able to nuzzle up a little with the Chamberlain is priceless for her, even if the occasion rarely presents!
This old pair would possibly like having privacy moments yet the castle is veined with spying eyes and alert gazes...so they are often getting just small "courtsy affection2 as one could call it...

Awww, that is so sweet. Hmmm...SkekZok nuzzles SkekKa who nuzzles SkekTek. SkekTek returns nuzzle to SkekKa but SkekKa doesn't return nuzzle to SkekZok. If SkekKa was allowed to mate she'd pick anyone who wasn't in the military faction.

Heartless-Pixie: Well, excccuuuuuse me, Grandpa!
SkekSil: RAWK!! GRANDPA!?

Heartless Pixie

A unicorn-horned boy with fangs in a baseball uniform. He threw cupid-baseballs, which, when swallowed, made the victim become blindly in love with anything at first sight. Ms. Marvel succeed in breaking off his horn and not only canceled the spell, but also revealed Pixie's true "giant ogre" form.

"Humans love, love, so I'll use it to torment them!" Lady Despair laughed.
