Quick Gen Interlude by Deisi Quick Gen Interlude by Deisi
[Pol] wrapped one hand in the fabric of my shirt and pulled my face closer to his. "My orders are to keep him safe and out of trouble. Whether we succeed in retrieving something from a fairy tale is not important to me. Do you understand?"

Raj! Raj! Guess what I'm re-reading! :boogie:
I found a few more Thief fans here (we're few and far between), and I was re-reading the book for probably the fortieth time, so... this is a very quickly colored doodle that I thought I'd put up before attempting to launch into this LotR fanfiction thingy... I have to finish my first illustration, and then it should be up.

I love your depiction of this scene! One of my favorites in The Thief :)

Every time I read this scene, I sort of wanna punch everybody. (Except for Gen, poor baby, I never wanna punch you, 'cause you are just too delightful in every way.) Even Pol, who I actually like, because at this point, Gen has been getting the short end of the stick pretty much every time he turns around, and now Pol is like, "You should feel bad for Sophos," even though Gen is the one with blue fingers. 

Anyway, despite these feelings, this was one of my favorite scenes, and I am so very glad that you have drawn it! I love this fandom (even though I haven't even finished it, yet) and fanart is one of the best things EVER, so thank you!

It's no wonder why he's so whiny in the Queen of Attolia- I would too if this happened to me.

Agreed with you so much, Indigo. XD

Oh, yes. It is absolutely no wonder at all. Personally, even though everyone sort of bullies him through his depression because that is canonically the best way to deal with Gen (because he doesn't LIKE being coddled as much as he thinks he does), I think that his reaction to getting his hand cut off it entirely appropriate.

Dang, Gen just doesn't have great luck with his hands in these books, does he? Foreshadowing perhaps?

Thanks!  The Thief (and to a lesser extent, its sequels) has always been one of those worlds that has followed me around since I was very young, and I used to draw quite a bit more scenes.

I'm rereading the books after finally getting good my hands on the fourth book. I'm back in. Love with gen :( this is lovely and more people should be drawing fanart for these books!

Em!! I re-read all the books again, plus the new 4th book (CoK). :squee: I have printouts of ALL your old sketches from these books, and had to pull them out of storage to look at while reading through. <GAWW> :happybounce: So happy for this site to see all your AMAZING work!! YAY!!

Haha, awesome! I've read the first one so many times I have all these notes scribbled in the margins like, "Ha!" "That's what you think!" etc.
