A heroic little mouse by lily-fox A heroic little mouse by lily-fox
I remarked to a friend that "Tippens" was cute (Misha Collins’ proper name being Dmitri Tippens Krushnic) and sounded like a heroic little mouse, and she said somebody needed to draw him. So here he is, Despereaux’s midwestern cousin. Maybe his little bag is full of salt and the pin is iron?

Very adorable, I love his pin and safety pin too, this picture is full is cute details that add the heroic little mouse motif. And his face <3

ALSO. I am ecstatic about the song you listed for this picture, because Mirrormask is one of my favorite movies of all time and is not very well known and not that popular despite it's freaking amazing plot,soundtrack, and visuals.
I was wondering if you'll ever plan to do some fanart of it? Your talent and style would be perfect for it : DDD!

Thank you! I know, I love Mirrormask, too. I don't think I'll ever do fanart for it, because it always gave me a kind of creepy, uncomfortable feeling and I didn't connect with any of the characters. Still a gorgeous movie, though, and the music made a big impact on me.

Ahh alright. It does have a lot of creepy aspects to it, but the ending is happy and I think it has a wonderful sense of humor to it C:

I cannot tell you how adorable I find wee Tippens. <3 The details on his bag (I'm a big fan of button closures like that) and the bandage on his little tail are wonderful. I kinda sorta want to watch An American Tail and The Secret of Nimh now.

I find it so odd that I can look at this mouse and see Misha in him. *shakes head in wonder* Lovely work!

This is seriously AMAZING!!! I think the name Tippens is just the best and it fits perfectly! It totally reminded me or Secret of Nimh! I loved that movie so much when I was little, I had forgotten what is was called until a couple of months ago when I found it on netflix and recognized it from the art on the cover. Mouse!Misha is just too cute I can't get over it! :D Someone should write a fic where Castiel is turned into a mouse somehow, or a comic either would be great!!! :) I think though his bag should maybe, possibly, perhaps be a different color...

Ugh, Secret of Nimh made me cry hysterically, even just like, last year. When she holds the rope and pulls the stone out of the mud... I can't even.

What color should his bag be?

Secret of Nimh made me cry too! I think someone should a story about Mouse!Cas and like his adventures or something! If there already is some please tell me!

I think his bad should be a light bronze or a dusty kind of tan. :)

And also, Mishas birthname is just perfect, in my opinion. I've allways loved the name Demitri and all its variants.

He looks so sweet, and he still needs a hug, just a very tiny one. This makes me think of Redwall....

He looks strong despite it, though. As if he would have suffered from a bite or some such, but vanquished his enemy like a boss.

Heh. Well, maybe Castiel would, but a Misha mouse would look a little smug and be wearing a ridiculous hat.
