If you haven't listened to Made Up Lies and Stupid Daydreams before, I'm gonna need you to do that right now before you get any further. It's good. It's really, really good.
This is... oof... Foremost a love ode to a love ode, the redraw I said three months ago I wouldn't do, the last piece of 2017, and a debut piece for Ashe (who is not at all a skyrim expy)
Back in mid-December I thumbnailed a tiny spread to the eponymous tune and, on a whim, approached June LaLonde asking if I could use her lyrics for the piece. She very sweetly said yes, which made me realize it was a Thing I Had To Do Now. It took a month and change to throw together, in between full workweeks and the holidays, and is the reason I have been quiet since then.
What else... This concerns Basedt, a story in Moribund that I haven't talked a lot about. But the dynamic should be familiar: Prisoner enters a 100-year-old terrestrial maelstrom in search of his sister, and is ultimately lost to it; A former end-times cultist, Ashe, finds him face-down in a snowdrift and strings him along in stopping the storm from swallowing the world. They have an emotion or two, along the way.
I promised myself I would stop accompanying serious, vulnerable work with joke captions and it's sincerely difficult. Thanks for looking. Please check June's entire discography. I'm gonna go sleep for a week.
