Lord Typo, hired by my true nemesis Jeffrey, continues to haunt my waking steps and plague my dreams. There is no end to this curse. I am doomed.

Finding myself actually disappointed I have to wait a week for the next episode of Tale of the Nine Tailed… wow. Rude.

Anyone remember that Theme of the Month where you had to write about kdrama characters you related to? I never submitted an entry cos it would’ve been a little too TMI and also depressing, but pity it didn’t come out this year, cos then I would’ve been hard pressed to pick between the sociopath with an obsession for sharp shiny objects that dresses in flamboyant royal purple dresses and carries a handmade Italian umbrella with a jester skull handle- and a tired, sassy Gumiho with an obsession for (mint) ice cream, who makes one too many inappropriate morbid jokes at extremely inappropriate times (probably about breaking people’s fingers) and wields a blood red magical cane sword umbrella…

If you mapped a graph of past characters who I also found relatable I think you would find “ice cream”, “cane shaped objects, possibly sharp”, “tired”, “sarcastic or variants” and “needs therapy” would be common denominators…

    Oh, fantastic! ❤️❤️❤️

    OMG Lucky u! I love NZ!

    Ah, sic! This is so cute and the thought of you thinking of me and actually drawing these means so much, really, thank you ❤️

    Hot air balloon is on my bucket-list and Cappadocia is what we were both dreaming of, sadly, this has to wait! Also, we do eat A LOT of macarons, and yes, we’ve vowed to do nothing together forever, ha!

    P.S I showed him part.1 and the first thing he said was “Why is my head square?”
    P.P.S The second thing he said was “How much do they know?”.. umm.. well, let’s never tell him!

      And yass! Doing nothing is so important and doing nothing together forever sounds amazing <3

        Ooh! This isn’t the final part? Looking forward to it!

        Actually, the hot-air balloon is on my travel bucket-list with my sisters but they were kind enough to give it up for SNG.. only if he gives up Salar De Uyuni for them, there is an argument going on that I want nothing to do with!

        Hehe.. I’ve told him bits, just not everything.. honestly, some things that I’ve shared on DB even my sisters don’t know about!

I didn’t like his sageuk hair and I have a thing for top knots so I made it better and yeah I’m not that great at drawing real people so it doesn’t really look like LDW but I don’t care.
Oh yeah and then I drew him a little friend lol

AND IT\’S MINT CHOCOLATE 😂😋

    Even if it’s total PPL, I was surprised to see a character like Mint chocolate. So many people around me hate the idea of mint and chocolate together in any way while I love it. Totally rejoiced when he refused to eat any other flavor.

        Not really expecting you to be able to get this brand wherever you are but if you’re looking for a to die for company that perfectly balances its flavour combinations with the best rich creamy ice cream you’ve ever had, then I recommend Lewis Road Creamery’s Mint Chip.
        But idk how easy it is to find outside of NZ lol.
        Also lol look I guess the ppl is working lmao.

      I more than endorse Ice Cream PPL of any kind kekekekeke
      But yes Mint Chocolate especially in ice cream is such a polarising flavour! I also love it though; he’s definitely my style Gumiho. And that scene if him ratting round in the ice cream bin? Parfait. (Also I relate) 😂😂😂

        I wouldn’t like to be in your place to pick just one single subject.
        Maybe some mixture?

          No it’s more enjoyable when it’s a live watch, and also when there are people watching it at the same time. That’s part of the fun.

          Ofc it helps when the drama is campy enough to make fun of so that even people who enjoy the show, can also enjoy the shitpost, or just straight up bad enough that the shitpost becomes part of the experience.
          Normally, I would honestly just pick an upcoming show and have at it (as I did last year), and not care, but… it’s less tiring if there is hmmm audience participation as it were lol.

          There are some upcoming shows that might be fun to shitpost, but I’m a bit out of the loop so I’ve no idea what everyone is interested in or looking out for, even just to shitpost watch…

          On top of that, whilst I like the one off funny pictures, there’s something about a single but full length show shitpost- it takes on a life of it’s own and becomes a worthwhile creation.
          I’m not sure a mixture would work… not to the same extent anyway, and no more than one or two crossover drawings, as I’ve been doing anyway.

I would like to blame/thank @ndlessjoie and @bbstl, and I guess also @yyishere\’s wheeled cat, for inspiring me to write this.
Also this piece comes with an obligatory soundtrack, that must be listened to whilst reading for maximum immersion and effect: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUqcaAocZ7s

.
The night is dark and mist hangs low about the streets, wrapping itself like a scarf around buildings, caressing the lampposts that shed their wan light into the gloom. A gust of wind sends the dead leaves of last autumn scuttling along the sidewalk, but does nothing to lift the fog.

Music plays. You shiver. The tinny piano melody floats down the street, disembodied. To you horror, you find yourself singing along under your breath… β€œpOp goes the weasel…”

A different sound joins. You wonder what it is at first, then realise it’s the sound of wheels rattling over the cobblestones. They click and clack and bump and jerk.

Another sound joins. It sends ghost spiders crawling down your back.
The sound of bells.

The words of the nursery rhyme catch in your throat.

A figure emerges from the night. It is strangely shaped, tall and gangly and all in black, and its head seems twisted and mutated. Something catches the orange light of the street lamp, but you can’t make out what it is.

It moves on, agonizingly slowly.
You see it drags behind it a sword that scrapes the cobblestones, like nails on a chalkboard. And then farther behind tied to a string, that emerges from the mist like harbinger of misfortune… a toy cat on small metal wheels. It has a bell around its neck that jingles.

But you could’ve sworn you heard more than one bell.

Then it hits you.

The distorted head shape, the strange glinting in the streetlight… the only distinguishing feature of the figure…
A three pointed jester hat, with bells on the end.

The fog clears ever so slightly. The figure pauses. The music stops.
You stand frozen in your doorway, unaware you’re holding your breath.

A voice sifts through the cold night shadows.
β€œcome and plaaaAAyyYYY withh meeEEeee.”
The figure turns and looks directly at you, cocking its head to one side.

Your hair stands on end. Your chest constricts. Cold terror washes over you.
An ominous cackle echoes on the rising wind.

@azzo I’m almost certain I was gonna say something very important here, like context or maybe about how I had to make sure I didn’t accidentally share a picture of a rusted coffin gravestone instead, but I’ve forgotten so… Uh… Happy… Wedding.

What does one even call this? A Sh☠️tpost of Satire? A Satire of Satire? A Sh☠️tpost of a Sh☠️tpost? Idek.

I was thinking of saying this might become a series but I honestly don’t think I can commit to anything in parameters rn, or to following a consistent theme or inspiration, not that… I necessarily do that anyway, but…
Let’s just say I want to draw more.
And as long as it involves weapons, hats and curious outfits of various kinds, that’s good enough for me.

Tagging: @yyishere (for 1/4-1/3 needed context)
@lordcobol (he’ll know why even if no-one else does)
@maybemaknae (for the Mystic Dress that I took too long to draw for you. P.S. it’s kinda hard to tell but there’s a little something personal about the print design of this one….;) )

    Funny story, when my kids were young, and they would “mom, mom, mom, mom, mom,” me all day long, and I was particularly crabby, I would sometimes tell them that mom had run away and hired the evil twin sister for the day so they better zip it and be careful.

          Thank you for waiting for this reply @hebang
          The Boring Meta Explanation Origin Myths of the DoppelgΓ€ngers:

          The 2009 Deadpool Candyland Sic-
          2009 Deadpool is a reference to the 2009 X-Men Origins Wolverine movie which infamously butchered the character Deadpool and had him be this weird version with a sewn up mouth and katanas that slide out of his hands. (Think Wolverine but frontier). YY’s also infamous Candy Satire’s latest instalment dedicated to me reminded me of that movie.
          Candyland was just what I decided to call the world of that story lol.

          Vampire Queen-
          Honestly? Dunno/nothing. I just thought a campy version of me would be best imbodied in a vampire.
          I make a lot of jokes about vampires, might as well become one.
          The historically inaccurate bit is just a nod to all the historical fashion videos I’ve been watching and how the dress is kinda Elizabethan but also not at all. And there’s a frakking candy cane sceptre so.

          Evil Twin Sicaria-
          Sicarius is, as Lord Cobol and I discovered, if it were a name, the masculine version of the name. I’m not changing it but Sicaria is the feminine form and we joked that that was my Evil Twin. I think the Evil Twin thing has come up before too but idk where.
          The purple suit is because although my signature shitposting look usually involves bright pink, my favourite colour is actually purple.
          The dual swords she’s wearing are sicas, yes, actually, which are ancient Thracian or Illyrian daggers https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sica
          The creepy jester face was just kinda inspired by several pieces of art I found online, a more exaggerated version of the already exaggerated way I draw myself.

          ”Normal” Sicarius (apparently it’s still up for debate as to whether or not that’s the REAL me)-
          The hanbok the β€œnormal” Sic is wearing comes from the drama Mystic Pop Up Bar, although the original doesn’t have the white strip round the base, and it has lipstick prints instead of skulls on the bodice pattern. Rumi wanted me to draw it a while ago, so I thought I’d insert it into this.
          The Tachi ofc, is from and explained in the final 2019/Vagabond shitpost.
          The lollypop is well, I liked the juxtaposition of this giant great big sword being wielded by a void pixie in an otherwise cute and pretty outfit, licking a child’s sweet. It contributes to the comical and faux innocence of the character, and to the setting; the mischievous spectator perusing the display of parodies.

    I spy a modern doppelganger looking into the museum of doppelgangers. It’s a meta moment for doppelgangers, a reflection on the past. A dark mirror.

    But where is Sicarius herself? Will the real Slim Shady please stand up.

    A wild, horrifying, beautifully creepy museum…speechless with fear and awe. I am honoured beyond words to be in it…*crying* D-director? Me? Poor little muddlehead cutesy me?

    The swords creeped me out.
    The grin on Evil Twin’s skull face will be my new nightmare.
    The blood-splattered Vampire Queen gave me the chills.

    I have unleashed a monster.

    Coming soon: @bbstl and her Museum of Me. It will depict Bobo the Cat in all fifty shades of its feline glory.

    WOW – thank you for including me @sicarius. I am honored, but for the life of me (or maybe I need to get my glasses fixed) I don’t see any rust anywhere. It all looks like red chocolate to me. then again I just woke up and haven’t had breakfast yet

    But more importantly how does one walk in shoes with those huge curly toes at the end?

    Ahh the Mystic dress is here! I see what you did there! The lips are skulls. Nice personal touch. (I do miss the lips, but it’s still nice!)

    The blade looks too clean, I zoomed in the pic on another tab too. In what universe is a sic doppelganger allowed to exist w/o some violence?

    Am I too blood thirsty?

    Love the vamp sic 🧛‍♀️ dress. Except for the corset I’d be all for it irl any day! She’s even wearing red eyeshadow & lipstick, oh my heart ♥❤️♥️

hi guys it’s hard to be on here a lot right now and I’m sort of on holiday except for the anxiety and stress that decided to very rudely come uninvited on it and, @yyishere, sorry i wasn’t on yestereve to enjoy it in real time but im guessing i was either in a random cemetery or driving over a beech clad pass in the rain/snow anyway here are some highlights of the latest episode dedicated to me, thank you yy I really don’t deserve it 😂😂😂:

fig 1. Imprisonment for Shitposting? yeah that sounds about right.

The impertinence of not knowing what a shitpost is, a crime worthy of death? obviously.

fig 2. The most accurate thing about this is actually that i’m in bare feet lmao

fig 3. ten minutes. 😂😂😂😂😂 honestly YY.

fig 4. 5. 6.
I am truly blessΓ©d to have such fellow beans that know me so well and are genuinely hilarious and fantastic and on a better day i’d have something funnier to say in response to you all. I love you *finger hearts*

You are all also correct. No top hat or jester hat? No cane sword? Rusty blades? I mean for one thing steel doesn’t rust … and we’re not in the iron age anymore πŸ˜‰

*I’m going to disappear into the ether now and maybe come back with the illustrative shitpost companion to this because I have been *INSPIRED* I mean the concept of me bleeding melona alone is just @outofthisworld*
