No Time by Vivyi No Time by Vivyi

There is no time to run, no time to hide - no time to recover.


A representation piece of what happens to Estelle towards the end of the prequel and first book. This is the representation of two-sides of her - the sides of her that are built within her, when the first book happens. One side is what everyone sees - the evil grin - the evil personality, the carelessness and ruthlessness of others. The other, is the side that no one sees - the hurtful sadness, the pain, the misery - and the constant fight to change herself.


I feel bad for having to put Estelle through this D: She's one of my favorite  characters for that reason though, ahahaha xD

Truly, one looks more evil than the other... :o And the greenish light makes the atmosphere even darker. Clearly reveals the hardness that the girl must face dealing with herself.

Thank you :D That's definitely what I was going for here, the battle between the good and evil within yourself xD

Amazing!! I think this is one of your best Viv! It's simple, but the idea is delivered clearly, and the feel is strong in there :D

omg this is so powerful viv ; o ;
somehow this reminds me of my piece sweet disposition because of the intensity buildup LMAO///
but AHHH yes i agree with arasteia, i really love the reflective colors you used here as well !!! and idk if this is what you were going for but it almost appears as if i see ripples moving back and forth with this; though i think it's probably just the lighting /v\

Great colour use, you really build up atmosphere with those almost sickly green hues, it is like she's looking into a mirrors or some kind of distorting pool I guess.

Thank you <3 I'm glad you think so! I personally thought she was trapped into an hourglass that switches around based on her mood and the water happens to engulf whatever side she's on, but I dunno xD

This is a really well done piece, Vi. I can clearly see the emotion you stated in the description..
I had no idea about this as Estelle's character and it intrigues me further to read your story.. I finally have time as it is summer so I definitely am going to now :)
Lovely piece, Vi!

Thank you! I'm happy you like it c:

I've been admittedly showing a lot of pre-tyrant Estelle (aka fourteen year old Estelle), because that's my favorite type of Estelle xDDD She's quirky and fun that way, and very innocent. Of course, not forever - the end of the prequel shatters that innocence, and forces her into a role she doesn't want, so she's forced to quickly mature and rule a throne as young as 16. The old version of the first book is very old - Marcilyn doesn't even exist, and there are many flaws because it is old writing - not to mention the lack of LGBT elements. But I always recommend it for people to read it anyway, because it was the first book that I've ever finished for an original series (but certainly not the last hehehe). Of course, the prequel will come out soon as well. (But I still need lots of time on it /cries ;n; )

Hopefully that wasn't too long XD

But thanks! c: :huggle:

Aww thank you Kaline :huggle: Poor Estelle indeed D: I think so too /hugglesEstelle I'm happy the symbolism turned out - usually I'm horrible at symbolism xD I'd love to do more works like this, with all of my tragic characters, if only I could conjure up more ideas xD
