Lay down my burden by lily-fox Lay down my burden by lily-fox
My wonderful friend HasuHime started writing her own Legion fanfic with the intention, I think, of injecting a sense of hope and optimism into the whole ordeal, and it's been a pleasure to see it growing. There are only a couple chapters of Arms & Armistice so far, but I love and recommend it.

There's a scene where Audrey has to help Gabriel take off his armor and such, and it charms me so much, like the mouse pulling the thorn out of the lion's paw. I think of this beautiful tune by Ollabelle;

I'm gonna lay down my burden
down by the riverside
I'm gonna lay down my sword and shield
down by the riverside
I'm gonna study war no more


Just a very small sketch. I promise to do much prettier stuff for this story.


props: mehndi brushes by NadinePau-stock
materials: pencil, paper + PS8
music: Ollabelle, "Riverside"

I agree, the fandom is way better than the movie, that's why I'm here. It wasn't the worst movie I'd seen- course I watch alot of retro B-flick monster films so my standards are low LOL
It had alot of potential and they could have done so much but the fanfics seem to fill it all in so I'm happy.
Anyway, this picture is really sweet and I love your style of work. I think this is a great couple.

I'm blaming you completely for my new obsession with this ship and this movie (that I've never even seen). I can't decide if I'm really happy about it or if I'm ready to run around and scream my head off.

I'll get back to you on that. :XD:

Pretty much every submission you've done since Jenny and Cheval: Interlude, rests in my DA inbox.

This makes me crumble with longing for romantic feelings. You have a special magic, that you do. :)

I know Gabriel is supposed to be very tall, and I love how tiny Audrey is compared to him. The tinier ones seem to be the most surprising in strength me thinks.

These are the kinds of feelings I'm going to keep with me when I visit my best friend in Hawaii in June! :D

Thank you. Ha ha, has all that stuff just piled up in your inbox, or are you keeping it there? :D

I love the juxtaposition of his bigness and his tenderness. You always kind of want to believe that the tiger will be cuddly, you know?

You're coming to Hawaii? Did you already tell me this? I feel like you might have. Which island?

I'm keeping it there! I love looking at all of them. They bring a smile to my face. :)

And yes, I do want to believe that the tiger is cuddly. And yes I have m'am. Oahu in June. :D

Ironically enough, I just read the chapters before I found this sketch, and knew right off what this was from. :) Great drawing by the way.

I absolutely adore the feeling of this. It's soft and gentle and a little war-torn. I think my favorite part is that flourish in the upper right; I never would have thought to add a touch like that, but it's perfect.
Also, for some bizarre reason, I'm drawn to his hand against the wall. There's a funny amount of emotion in that, like he's yielding to her, bracing himself, and protecting the both of them, all at once.

This movement is so infectious. I've got an urge to write my own Legion bit, now.

I love the way you feel about his hand on the wall. I hadn't thought of it that way, but it's wonderful. Thank you!

And oh man, if you do write your own story? Please do drop me a note!

man, your art inspires me so much. i've been really bad about only working on figurative stuff for my classes, but when i see your drawings it makes me want to work on personal projects and muck about with a more stylized look. i really like this whole series of pieces by you, even though i'm totally unfamiliar with the fandom.

I'm so glad you enjoyed them! I'd say just poke around the Legion section on FF.net and you're bound to find more that you like. Oh-- I also recommend Krahkaw's Right In Two -- it's intense and very complex, but just exquisitely written. Also in progress, but worth it to begin. :)

Haha, what a nice fan-fic. I hope it continues, now I want to read it. I saw the movie, and I felt that what happened to Audrey was kinda...wrong? I mean, they kept her alive, even though she should have died from the start, but then they off her at the end?
Reply
:iconlily-fox:
lily-fox Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2011
Yeah, she was just a loose end. Everybody dies except for our little Mary, Joseph and baby trio, and for what? No reason. Did they want to like, martyr Audrey? Not very effective.

I'm glad all these stories give her a second chance.
