OC CUPID: MATCH FOUND!

Esteban Christopoulos is a grump. Besides that, he is a muse — he inspires writers to knuckle down and get it done. This is explained much better in The Muse Mentor webcomic where he appears. But mainly he is a grump, who belongs to Amy King (sephiramy).

Sheila Morrison is a quiet soul. You probably kind of have to be, when you have the potential to accidentally electrocute the people around you. Appropriately enough she is part of a novel-in-progress by SmirkVerily. (smirkverily).

Esteban: What came first; existence preceding essence or the existential crisis?

Sheila: Well…I assume the existential crisis came long before anyone tried to describe it as such; people have probably been having that sort of problem throughout all of history, even if they didn’t have a name for it. So even if it wasn’t called an “existential crisis” from the start, of course it came before “existentialism” was officially thought up and given an anthem.

Sheila: What was your favorite fairytale/folklore story when you were a kid, and why?

Esteban: I have never been very fond of fairy tales nor most folklore, to be truthful, not even when I was younger. If it at all consoles you, I am very interested in the history of traditional storytelling and the passing down of the stories, themselves.

Let’s hope the pair enjoy their date, generously funded by OC Cupid…to Esteban’s choice of destination!

I have to reblog this one too, because it’s adorable. Look at these kids having an actual conversation, one table over from the panther and the dinosaur talking about assault rifles.

You cannot believe my astonishment that anyone took that question seriously. (Esteban is surprised, too, he was actually trying to make a joke. No one understands me, he languishes. Boo hoo.)

Additionally oh no you’re letting HIM pick?! WHY? Uh, I mean…

I thank smirkverily in advance for being a good sport. Sheila handled his question like a true diplomat! (And so did the rest of the contestants, all things considered!)

I’m collating all the results from the OCC matchmaking questionnaire, and so far the main thing I’ve learned is that Esteban is going to be single until the day he dies.

I am taking this as a compliment.

Don’t ruin this for Bea and Addy, Esteban. You won’t live to regret it.

Are we posting these, now? Are we letting people know the terrible possibilities of the OC Cupid match-up system?
Ugh. Who would have done such a thing.

For those of you who have been reading my webcomic The Muse Mentor, you may have noticed recently that each of the main muse characters got a big ole’ full body on their own page. Now that all four have been completed, I was curious how well their proportions held up if I actually went in and sized ‘em all into the same pic, and hey, you know, as it turns out! They’re all the right size!! GO ME! (Yeah, I know maybe that sounds really dumb, but holding up proportions within the SAME picture has been hard for me, so the fact these can all be pulled off completely different pages and slapped together, and it works? Gold star for me. Good job, me!)

Esteban, this had better not be the picture you intend to use for the OC Cupid profile.

Meanwhile, it’s all kicking off in Introverts’ Corner.

oh my god
A Boy And His Dog. (The “what’s that, boy? Someone is trying to have fun? And dance? At a ball?! Let’s go!!! …or maybe let’s stay here, I don’t want to deal with anyone else” edition!)

marigodepaolo:

*whispers* ‘I am afraid that she is painfully shy to ask you herself. She has quite a strong case of social anxiety, though this will do well for her self-esteem.’
Mikhail decides to help Marianne (from “The Devil’s Bride”) have a memorable night at the ball. 
…then he spots amoungthegentlymad’s Owlbridge, and instinctively snaps into savage-hungry-wolf mode.
SECURITY! 
(Sorry, amongthegentlymad…)



Apparently, Esteban has not forgotten his dealings with The Devil’s Bride asking for a smooch.
That being said, what are you, the Worst Fairy Godfather, or something? Get out of - you weren’t even here - where did you - it’s a DANCE, grandpa, get - get out! No one’s gonna recognize you with your hair washed, anyway.

SECOND SET! This time around, we have Desma and heysawbones's Steven (EMPEROR Steven, in fact), Ace and jim-moroniarty's… well… Ace!, Esteban and spookybelle's Elsa, and Harlowe with gravitationaltimothy's Eiji, complete with shounen sparkles! Thank you guys for letting me borrow your characters. Only one more set to put uppppp.

The first kiss set, at long last. So happy to be posting these, only errr… a few days late. Hope you guys still like them, anyway! This one features Bea and polks's Rail, Esteban and marigodepaolo's Devil's Bride, Mona and catkicka's Kezzie, and Piper and falingard's Nitrine. It's also a good example of why you never ask Esteban for anything (sorry, haha! I tried to warn you, Mari!). Next batch soon!
