Kat and Terrance (decembers task) by DarkLaviLover
Kat and Terrance (decembers task)
So this is hard to do on my phone in California, but i dont want to die next month so heres part of the comic i started to doodle for my favorite conversation with Terrances coffin. (I hope its good enough)

"Eh?" Kat shifted her head up. "Mister Lunvrick?" She knew he never responded. Everyone in the Carnival knew he was always asleep. Sighing she decided she was hearing things. "Mister Lunvrick don't get my hopes up that you'll wake up." She shifted her head back to its original position and started to fiddle with her loose threads again.

"Humph." Terrance let out a gruff sound. He didn't care if she heard or not, he was begging to get bored stuck inside his coffin prison. At least that's what it felt like today - sometimes it felt like a sanctuary. By now Terrance was completely awake and in control of his senses. If he wanted too he could have kicked out the lid to his coffin and finally given that dumb puppet exactly what she wanted. But then that meant being active and, well, alive, and that's the one thing Terrance hated most.

Ripping one of her threads out at the sudden noise, Kats eyes widen when she realized it came from behind her. "aon bhealach....." She pushed herself to her feet and turned to face the Coffin. She reached out and touched the lid with her mix-matched fingers. "Mister Lunvrick?" (No way)

'Shit she heard me.'
Terrance grimaced to himself. Should he respond? Should he ignore her? He hadn't thought this much in decades, and his head was starting to hurt.

"Mister Lunvrick?" She asked again. Kat wasnt sure whether to smile or frown. Had she really heard Mister Lunvrick? Could it be she could finally meet him? Could he tell her how to die? Her thoughts were stopped short as that last thread she had pulled out was the only thing holding her knee together. "Eh?" She gasped as she dropped to the ground, her mix-matched fingers trying to hold the coffin for support. "cos dúr!"
(Stupid leg)

Taking one final moment to decide if he really wanted to stand there in silence listening to this girl prattle on or not, Terrance made up his mind.
"What," He said gruffly through the coffin lid, "Can't a damn man sleep in his own damn coffin?"

Staring at the coffin in shock, Kat helped herself slid down into a sitting position. -it talked back. He talked back~!! what do i do? What do i say?!-
Not being able to speak, Kat just rested her head against the Coffin...grinning like a madman.

Bonjour~ So you’re the new freak who decided to join my carnival! Well then let’s get to know you.

New? But you sent me a…a..cad a dtugtar é ?….copy! A copy of that thing I signed last time I was working here :/ something about…uh…hrm…whats the phrase you used…’owned my ass’…. nó rud éigin mar sin….

First… how did you even find my carnival?

Oh I can’t remember how i found you guys the first time but I remember trying to find that guy…cad a ainm ?…..Terrance! yeah I heard he was really good at killing things….and I wanted to see if that was true! Tá mé ag iarraidh a bás and I hear he can help me!

Second… What makes you think you can handle the work here?

Well, I never need to sleep, or eat, or breathe…..nó rud ar bith i ndáiríre. I fall apart a lot but I’m getting better at sewing and staying put together so you don't have to worry too much about that this time! 

Third… What are your talents then? You must be good at something.

I’m a puppeteer! I can create exact macasamhla of people and control what they do with my strings. I can’t control too many at once but with more practice i think i could control more! I haven't been able to make some people…siad sruthán suas díreach…

Fourth… How are you with other people – like customers?

I think i scared a kid once when I couldn't find my arm but I’m very friendly with Costumers! The little kids are sure the best to talk to they tell me all sorts of cool things Cosúil cad é an ghrian , cad is madra , go im greannmhar ………..  Is fuath liom é nuair a gáire siad! I’m swear I’m not that funny :/  

Finally… What makes you freak enough to join?

…Bhuel ní féidir liom bás , titim mé a chéile go leor mar go bhfuil mé puipéad beo ...... and I uhhhh.... Is féidir liom a rialú gan a gcead a dhéanamh iad a dhéanamh rudaí spraoi !

(Irish translation if you need help. its from first to last)
-whats it called?
-or something like that
-whats his name?
-I’m trying to die!
-or anything really
-they just burn up
-Like what the sun is, what a dog is, that im funny....i hate it when they laugh!
-Well I can't die, I fall apart a lot because I'm a living puppet..........I can control people without their consent to make them do fun things! 

Kats Audition
And here's Kat's audition! 
I tried to make her less annoying than last time but still....Kat. 

Kat belongs to me :3

Recently I've been working on my drawing skills a lot~ I love to draw just about anything and sometimes I do some photography. I hope to one day get my manga up and running, with the help of my friends; and I also hope that I never stop liking to create art.

A lot of shit has been going down at my house this week. I'm finally getting a transmission for my car and then getting my license right after. Thats this friday. I'm waiting for a call back for a job this week (where i hopefully won't feel like i need to kill myself after every shift).

Today (tuesday), my dads department got laid off. everyone except him and one other person. This lay off thing has been happening for over 5 years and he's surprised that he's lasted this long. And its always stressful. He came home early and he only ever talks about money anyway so now its just worse.

On a happy note I was reminded yesterday, by a two middle school girls, why it is that I wanted to be an artist. They asked for commissions and then proceeded to draw for an hour after we talked. They had told me they were inspired by my art and I haven't felt that way in a long while. I think i'll be putting up some of my more recent work because of those two (i have like 50 pages of art to choose from that i haven't uploaded)

So on that note. As of now I am taking commissions and art trades.

Full body Sketches: 10$ (with Shading 12$)
Lenia by DarkLaviLover

Full body w/background Sketches: 15-20$ (with shading (17-22$)
Imprisoned by DarkLaviLover
 Add a character for 7$ 
Fantasy by DarkLaviLover

If you want full or partial color just ask. It'll probably add about 5$ to whatever it is. I'm not at a point where I do digital work yet because i can't afford a damn tablet and my mouse skills aren't quite there yet.

I have 5 spots open for Commissions

and 5 for Art Trades
1) :iconterminallyapathetic:
2) :icontheoutsanityshoppe:

Just comment below if you would like either! I would love to get back in the swing of things and this I think is my first time doing commissions ever (ack I need a paypal don't I)

Hope to see some of you at K-con (Dunno who I'm going as yet don't ask I'm broke).
