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.

That's weird, my choir sung (sang?) that song when I was in eight grade.

you know I never read ANY Legion fanfic until you started on this whole kick of fanart that you're on. Now I can't get enough!! And damn do you pick good stories too!

Thank you, and I'm glad to hear it! I usually steer clear of fanfic, but I'm glad I dived right in.
