Sunday Gnomedays 3-22-20

Or rather, the 22nd/23rd as I transition to working overnight shifts at my day job (for the time being).

Anyhoo. Sunday Gnomedays continues despite uncertainty and fear!! 💜

I missed posting for the Spring Equinox, and I am finding myself very fascinated and oddly comforted by plague mask imagery lately.

So.

Blessed (Gnomish) Persephone, with healing, comforting lavender and three such doctors. I have to believe that She doesn’t want more of us in Her realm yet, and She is here with us.

(Also, “Tock the Gnome” fans – the coats the doctors are wearing might look familiar from bonus art. Which may say something interesting about the family history of one of the main characters. ….If I decide its canon. We shall see.)

Two Prayers for Healing — Gangleri’s Grove

A reader asked me late last week if I had any prayers, both to the Norse and the Greco-Roman Gods, for healing in a time of plague. This is what I have to share. Stay safe folks, mentally as well as physically. Don’t hoard toilet paper. Be kind. Wash your hands. If you’re bored out […]

Lean on your Gods with respect and gratitude, everyone.

And thank you, dear Galina!

A bit of catchup on this Gnomish devotional day ❤

Today’s proper post featuring a Gnomish soldier of the “Tock the Gnome” variety, taking pause in drawing her sword.

(I needed something fierce but peaceful after the announcement I chose to make yesterday.)

And a bonus! Inspired by last night’s Lore Olympus episode. Thank you, Rachel Smythe, for handling Persephone’s trauma so beautifully.

As for last week, I visited New York Faerie Fest with a dear Gnomish friend, so here’s some extra Gnomish celebration and the proper drawing of Tock – combined with the usual patrons-only drawing of Mariatu, click here to see the full thing!

(Guest starring Mark Roloson and a painting of his Sir Maarten, another unnamed Sir Gnome who I will credit if/when I find out his name, an honorable Troll, the Faerie Queen Herself and the leader of Mythical Beasts!)

Thanks as always for your patience, followers! June was bananas but July should be calmer, so fingers crossed for getting back to posting as regularly scheduled/intended!

Day 4, Heal/Devour

Once again I chose the Light/Seelie theme. So here’s something from “Tock the Gnome” backstory, two characters that need healing and could reach for it, in their union. But will they? 💗

Day 5, Gift/Thief

Inspired by the Seelie side again – in honor of International Women’s Day, the Tockverse ladies (or at least as many of them as I could fit on the page) are here in solidarity. Growing together from the gift of all their varied relationships, individual strengths and differences.

True strength comes from that place of togetherness and cooperation, not competition. May we all build each other up and inspire each other, too!

Inspired very, very much by the most recent episode of “Steven Universe,” especially the song at the end of it:

“I don’t need you to respect me, I respect me

I don’t need you to love me, I love me

But I want you to know you could know me

If you change your mind”

Listen here.

(Thank you, Crewniverse, for such a healing, loving show.)

Gnomevember 2018 day 11/Sunday Gnomedays 11-11-18

Prompt, “Healing”

Since the Gnomes of “Tock the Gnome” do not have access to magic, they rely on physicians and their physics (medicines) for any ailments. And who makes those medicines? An apothecary! ….This absolutely does not match what I had in my head btw, but I hope the idea is still charming 😅 Also hoping/planning to develop this thought more in the future. Keep an eye on World Building Wednesday for that!

More Gnomevember here ❤
