... so apparently the next episode of Flash is not for two weeks and I'm going to diiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Spoilers for the next Flash episode, based on promos and such:

A stray comment about this week's episode:

So this is how that's looking:


There are starting to be a few rough pencil lines to keep me oriented on how things connect up (where the lines on the standing stones go, the rest of the fox, and that kind of thing). They're very light, but you can see them a little bit in the picture. The design is still mostly in my head, though.

With the present state of the world being what it is, I should not be allowed to read about apocalypses.

It doesn't even have to be an apocalypse that's likely to happen! The book in question was about a comet hitting the Earth and everyone wandering around trying to survive in the ensuing nuclear winter. Apparently my hindbrain REALLY DID NOT LIKE THAT, because I finished reading it last night in bed and then ended up having to get up for two hours and do relaxing things on the Internet to calm down enough to sleep.

So, right. No apocalypses for me right now.

I really enjoyed the book, though - On the Edge of Gone by Corinne Duyvis. It's YA with an autistic protagonist (written by an autistic author) and, as apocalypses go, it's not at all grimdark. A lot of bad stuff happens because, well, apocalypse (and if animal harm/animal death is an issue for you, be aware that a subplot includes pets being put to sleep), but overall it's an optimistic book about people pulling together and trying to help each other and rebuild society.

All the scenes of people wandering around in a dark, flooded wasteland trying to find enough food to survive were apparently traumatic in a way my brain couldn't quite deal with right now, though.
