photoshop tried to crash on me before I could finish weh
"Stop copying me."
"You’re not the boss of me!"
"Hey… Its gonna be alright kid… I got ya."
So, remember that one pic I drew over a year ago? You know, this one? Suddenly, it’s been getting some attention again, much to my surprise. I’ve drawn some continuations of that little verse already but not what directly follows their first meeting.
In my mind, Axel confronts James in the middle of a fight with the Flash. Recognizing the signs that something is seriously wrong with this kid, James immediately calls game over and heads back to one of the hideouts much to the Flash’s confusion.
Needless to say, James learns of the abuse and keeps Axel.
I guess the funny thing is that for the first picture touchofgrey37 makes a comment about James growing up so Axel has to replace him. In this little verse, James has to ‘grow up’ so he can take care of Axel. A kid is a whole new level of responsibility he doesn’t really know how to handle. So in some attempt to let the kid grow up in a better environment than the one he came from, James goes straight ending up working for the good guys.
"So let me get this straight. You’re admitting to stealing a missing child from his bed-"
"Look at these."
James spread the Polaroids over the table. Sure, digital would have gotten the job done just as well, but the classics had a better overall effect. In each one was Axel, the bruises on his arms and chest and back standing in stark contrast to his lightly tanned skin. Flash picked them up one by one, studying them with a frown.
"Single father, runaway mother, battered kid. Shitty as it sounds, that’s how the equation adds up, sometimes. He’s not safe in his house. Only way to make sure this kid lives to see puberty is to break the rules. You gonna help me, or what?”
"You could turn him over to-"
"Did some digging. Dad was a lawyer once, and he’s got friends on the force." A smile tugged at Flash’s lips.
"Not nearly as many as I’ve got. Clean up your act. Turn in the kid. We’ll see how hard it is to get a former felon legal custody over a child in an abuse case." James made to gather the photos. "No, these stay with me. Turn him in tomorrow morning, James, or I’m coming to find you."
It wasn’t custody, not by a long shot, but it was a start.
"We’ll be there with bells on, Flash."
Looked atthis picture while I drew..
Axel Walker. Roller Derby. You’re fucking welcome, Peeps. [or..I’m Sorry]
I will go and hide for eternity. Bye Bugs
May I add a fluffly skirt?— Nononono wait wait wait, I got this.
This may take a while though
this wasn’t what I wanted to draw
i used to joke before it was revealed axel wasn’t going to get powers [backwhen I still read it, even] that maybe the trickster will get something with flight, and then wingkink hit and sure wings why not except haha no not anymore
so maybe there’s some alt universe where the trickster is still a flight and prank roguetype but instead of shoes it’s wings. James is older so his have grown larger and a gentle gold color
and while axel’s are a more vibrant gold to match is incredibly loud personality he’s still too young so they’re just these little tuft things that can keep him afloat somehow don’t worry kid they’ll grow one day until then you’re the laughing stock of the rogues.
Mark has wings too but his are more of a dark-grey and slicker to be more water-proof
Happy Birthday Grey!! Here’s your two favorite little shits.
(sorry the marker didn’t scan very well)
DOES QUENTIN HAVE A VELOCIRAPTOR ON HIS SHIRT TOO
THANK YOU RAIN
Let’s all just appreciate how Axel is hovering to make himself look like he’s as tall as everyone else.
Am I the only one who sees this? Okay.
Once upon a time, when I was certain that this one person was going to actually set me on fire if I made my Axel RP account, I contemplated naming the account xoxocumslut69 and having Miley, who’d just gotten her haircut, as the faceclaim.
Sadly, I did not decide to do this, though the joke is still alive and well with pretty much anyone whom I told about it at the time.
So I understand someone is having a birthday today! Happy birthday, Rain! Enjoy an incredibly shitty continuation of the model AU I kinda phoned in at the last second because I procrastinate!
I CAN’T BELIEVE I HAD TO SEARCH THROUGH MY OLD DA GALLERY TO FIND THESE
in other news now that I’ve found them, I finally have working arc/chapter titles for that greaser!au
I REMEMBER THESE
Oh my gosh oh my gosh.
"Yo, did you see the look on Flash’s face when I threw those glue bombs at her?!”
"It was pretty cool, I guess."
"Are you blind, girl?! It was freakin’ sweet! And since I’m the one who stopped her the longest, that means you are paying for burgers tonight.”
"What, like some kind of date?"
"Buh I uh. Haha. No. Like…I’ll get my own food!"
"Works like a charm every time."
Axel likes Rowena, but she’s kind of a potato when it comes to admitting it.
