OC-pageant R3: Prospero by LadyLoriel OC-pageant R3: Prospero by LadyLoriel
For :icontheoc-pageantofda:

Theme: Storytime!


      Prospero had noticed who Rajand had been looking at his reflection a lot since they reached his home. It was unusual to see the assassin looking so concerned, though as Prospero thought about it he realized that Rajand’s room back at the hideout lacked mirrors. He couldn’t help but wonder why that was or why they caused such concern in the other man, not until he yet again saw Rajand look into a mirror. This time he saw how Rajand touched the scar that split his lips at the side of his mouth. It was subtle, but Prospero recognized the emotion displayed all too well himself. He had been there too. He wanted to do something to cheer the other up, to help remove the insecurity the other must feel. If memory served him right then maybe he had something that could help.
      Later that evening Prospero was resting on a rug outside, watching the stars above, just as Rajand came outside too. The surprised look on Rajand’s face made Prospero smile.
      “Don’t you think it looks good?” He asked, his smile never fading. It took a while before a soft smile spread on Rajand’s face.
      “It looks good on you.”
       “And it looks just as good on you as well.” Prospero replied as he watched Rajand laid down next to him and placed a hand on the huge fake scar that Prospero was wearing.
       “Thank you.” With that Rajand kissed Prospero and they both laid in silence watching the stars, until they fell asleep.
       And this is how Prospero ended up sleeping on a rug while wearing a huge fake scar.




Wonder about the story up there? In this challenge we were told to make a story and then an illustration connected to it (Quite different from the usual fashion designs I know XD). BUT we couldn't just write whatever. We had to use this: Birthday game for artist that own OCs by AngieR3741 to find out what our story would be based on out OCs Birthday (or creation days if no B-day was around).
So Prospero's Birthday is September 27th. So he got the line "
And this is how Prospero ended up sleeping on a rug while wearing a huge fake scar."
This... Was a rather big challenge for me. Because as most might have figured by now, Prospero tend to cover up pretty damn well. As in... You usually pretty much only see the lower half of his face. XD So kinda hard to place a huge fake scar on him anywhere then. BUT since we could add a second character I did manage to find a reason to why Prospero would wear one, and found a good enough location for it where undressing a bit would be acceptable for him... The one place he rarely is, his own damn home XD

As for the scar... I hope the outlining will be enough to make it look fake. Because I seriously barely can make "real" scars, even less one that would be noticeable "fake" in a drawing. XD

Yeeeeeeeeees! This story is still good every time I read it! ;u; It shows a softer side to Prospero instead if the usual fun guy trying to sell you stuff xD His awareness of his lover's insecurities and trying to make him feel better just shows that he is a really good guy :3 lnjfknfjhbfsjzh PROSPERO I LOVE YOU OMFFFFG! The scar does look obviously fake in comparison to Rajand's, you dod good on that :) The posing is cute too. Very innocent under the night sky!

Indeed. Especially when you still want it all to be in character for your character.

And thank you. ^^ Rajand is secretly a cutie (He is a marshmallow on the inside! XD Moahahaha XD). And of course Prospero is concerned! He might be not have any problems with selling crap to you, but he does indeed care about his loved ones! No one is gonna feel bad on his watch!
And once again, thank you ^^

Hahaha, true. It probably would have been easier for you to get the wedding dress as well. ;)
You found a nice work-around, though. And got to show a nice bit of background for Prospero too.

This is really sweet! The best stories come when you have to work a way around the 2 things you get that don't suit either your world or character. This was very well done.

Thank you.
And I guess there is some truth to that. I was working for a while that I would have to write Prospero rather OOC. But it ended well enough. XD
Thank you again. ^^
