Blessed Solstice and Midsummer, everyone!


WIP, "See?," Tock the Gnome, pencil sketch

(Some of Tock and the as yet name-unrevealed Orc Lady, being extra Fae, today.)

“Now, until the break of day,

Through this house each fairy stray,

To the best bride-bed will we,

Which by us shall blessed be;

And the issue there create

Ever shall be fortunate.

So shall all the couples three

Ever true in loving be….

With this field-dew consecrate,

Every fairy take his gate;

And each several chamber bless,

Through this palace, with sweet peace;

E’er shall it in safety rest,

And the owner of it blest.”

– A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare
