WitD 13: Drowning

Whispers in the Dark
a Great Mouse Detective fanfiction
Chapter 13 | Drowning ...

illustrations.: prologue | 01 | 02 | 03 | 04 | 05 | 06 | 07 | 08 | 09 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 ...
the chapters: prologue | 01 | 02 | 03 | 04 | 05 | 06 | 07 | 08 | 09 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14
... (to be continued)

summary: AU - None believed that the hate-filled words of a little girl could still live on after more then 200 years, but when strange events start occurring in London the city's only hope of survival lies with one mouse ... and a rat?

Rejoice, GMD friends, I have returned with chapter 13 on the 13th of August ... and made daring experiments with water and light just because I like blue ._.

Personally, I'm having mixed feelings for this update for Whispers in the Dark. On the one hand, I am pleased with the art :aww:. On the other ... I am nervous about the chapter itself :XD: I KNOW it could have been better ... but I gt stuck and feel like I totality butchered Ratigan's character... But I didn't mean to! Honestly!

But now ... time for sleep :sleep:

I just wonder why in all the fanarts of your fic Basil doesn´t look enough feminine. Dressing like a man doesn´t make you look like one in all the ways,you do keep your feminine features,that´s why many times people think i´m a gay guy.🤣🤣

This is very well done. it looks like it could be a screen shot from american tail. the detail and the expression is well portrayed and it makes the viewer more interested in what is really going on. the title is also well done, althogh the word 'dark' is too dark. the water doesn't look cheesy fake and the bubbles are a really cool touch. One thing you need to remember, however, is that in water, even dark water, things, such as legs, don't abruptly disappear. particularlly when the head and torso are in focus and clear.

Again, i really like this overall, and it's very well done.

I think this is one of my favorite pictures of your Lady Basil. She looks so cute and I want to save her. The colors are FANTASTIC and this scarf is back! Huzzah! I really love this story (it was one of the first GMD fics I ever read and remains one of the best) and I hope to see more soon! ^^

Thank you soo much! It has been one of my first underwater experiments at the time. Also,I need to re-establish contact with my muse because people still like this story and I want to finish it and OH COME ON SCHOOL! I WAS NOT BORN FOR ALL ALL-NIGHTERS!

But worry not - someway, somehow I shall see this completed. You have my word on it.

Thank you very much :heart:
The drowning scene was one of my favorite ones so far :lol: I'm doing my best not to disappoint my readers (and not let my odd sense of humor make itself know TOO much ^^;) so I'm happy to hear that :D

Thank you! :love:
And it's you and me both on that part :giggle: I can just picture the scene ... Basil can be very strong for a mouse, no? ;P

This is beyond awesome, Jessi! I once had a horrible nightmare of drowning, it turned out to be something far more serious and traumatic to me. Anyway, the effects here make it seem like Basil really is drowning and gasping to reach the surface. Beautiful work all over. :thumbsup:

Thank you ever so much :heart:
I must admit I have no idea how the idea came to me ... but I'm glad that it did :3 I missed working with blue and such a scene was a beautiful excuse to change my color pallet :D
I have a feeling I may be having a bit too much fun with this though ... ^^;
