Fanart Friday: Liannan from The Demon’s Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan. 
I absolutely fell in love with the character of Liannan and the concept of her grasping for warmth in the never ending cold of her existence. I also love the imagery of her bright red hair against her pale, cool skin.
Done in acrylic on canvas panel.

Just incredibly beautiful art of my demon baby lady. Happy TDL day darlin’s!

Anonymous said: So, I finished reading the Demon's Lexicon trilogy last night and I am in a glass case of emotions and there is very little fanfiction I find appealing and I am annoyed at the world. Help.

carnilia:

Nonny. NONNY. Let me tell you right here and now that I feel your pain. FEEL IT. I have read those books like 4 times each, and I know well the pit of despair one falls into when the realization hits that there is just no more.

BUT NICK! Your heart cries out. ALAN! Your dreams taunt. SIN! Your soul yearns. JAMIE! Your shattered innocence wails. MAE! Your mind sobs, inconsolably.

Well, NEVER FEAR, my lovely! I have come to temporarily soothe (and eternally add to) your suffering with the revelation that SRB, that cruel heartbreaker of an author, did indeed HERSELF write short stories in TDL universe!

Nick’s First Word (A Christmas Story)
Sorcerer and Stone Part 1
Sorcerer and Stone Part 2
The Arundel Tomb
Quiet In The House
Nick And Jamie Go To The Movies
The Coward With A Kiss
All The Way Back Where We Started From

Look, I am here to tell you that these stories are all A++, 10/10, would read again (I may or may not have read them all at least 3 times, and some of them like 6 times). And, look, I don’t mean to be Judgey McJudgerson, but if “Quiet In the House” doesn’t leave you with a bone-deep well of sadness and/or make you sob uncontrollably, then you are probably dead inside. (Or you are Sarah Rees Brennan herself, who is filled with a dark and terrible power that only grows stronger by the strength of our anguish and tears.) (Alternatively, you’re Nick, in which case: Hey, bae, how are you? Car good? Excellent. Any new, gorgeous blades? Tell me about what’s made you dryly amused lately.)

So, my dear anon, go forth and ruin yourself! Also, come here and talk to me about these books and characters some more. PLEASE. Tell me all about stuff you love and everything incredible in those pages because I LOVE THESE BOOKS SO MUCH SOOOO MUUUUUCH.

Aw, that is very lovely! And that list is proof that I always write wayyyyy too much, but I am so glad if people like it!

… Also, I am totes filled with a dark and terrible power. That’s canon.

I’ve been looking for a while and it seems that there is no fan art about Seb and Jamie on a date… how is it possible!?!?!?!

Seb doesn’t get it’s like a friendship bracelet…

One of my favorite things about The Demon’s Lexicon is the way that a lot of the really beautiful, loving lines—“There is nothing in two worlds I love half as much as you,” “Sometimes I want to be human for you,” “Alan would always be his favorite” and a few the ones Mae muses about Alan desperately wanting to be loved—are not between a main antihero and main love interest. They’re not even romantic. They’re between the two brothers, and given that there’s not a ton of Romance in the books, ‘d really say the Love Story plotline is platonic/familial and I just find it really beautiful

It’s absolutely right that the sibling love stories of those books are indeed very much the same as the arcs for any love stories. I mean, like so…

The Demon’s Lexicon

CHARACTER A: believes Character B may have another object of affection! And be keeping secrets!

CHARACTER A: Violates some privacy and feels their suspicions proven 100% true!

CHARACTER A: throws enormous fit!

CHARACTER B: kisses Character A and assures Character A that Character B’s love is, in fact, deep and unchanging like unto the ocean. As it turns out, Characters A & B love each other very much.

The Demon’s Covenant

CHARACTER A: learns that Character B kept a secret from A and is mad, since Character A always protects Character B!

CHARACTER A: acts out in hurtful ways to Character B.

CHARACTER B: now Character B is mad too!

CHARACTER A: But when Character A is low, despite the fact they’re both mad, guess who can’t stay away and has to comfort Character A…

CHARACTER B: And when Character B is low, guess who always comes through to console Character B…

CHARACTERS A & B: realise that they have a support system aside from each other.

CHARACTERS A & B: yet when tragedy strikes are the no. 1 person they both turn to.

CHARACTER A: learns A does not always have to protect B, though A may always want to, and learn to let B go (and know B will come back if B can.) Because A and B are their own independent people, but that doesn’t mean they don’t love each other very much.

The Demon’s Surrender

CHARACTER A: is super into their job.

CHARACTER B: has a secret that could torpedo that job.

CHARACTER A: hides secret out of love for Character B.

CHARACTER B: secret blown wide open.

CHARACTER A: throws it all away for Character B.

CHARACTER A: starts new life where Character A is actually happier, and where Character A will never be parted from Character B—because they love each other very much.

The throughline is easiest to spot in Lexicon, since it’s before the cast of important characters and interconnected relationships gets so big, but I did write the Demon’s Lexicon series because I wanted to write about epic love that was familial. And I think it’s interesting, to think about all the different love stories there can be… and how essential love is to so many stories.

TLDR: I meant to do that and I’m so glad people liked it. ;)

"It occurred to Nick that if people were put in drawers like pyjamas and you could pick them out, that would be an excellent arrangement. He would never pick out Mum, with all her screaming and her very quiet silences. He would always pick Alan. Alan would be his favourite."

I am constitutionally incapable of reblogging something sweet from my books without immediately also reblogging something about pain and misery in my books. ;)

It seems like having a list of ingredients on the back of me: only fair.
