Actually A Little Bit Poignant
omg who’s better at le massage, Ash or Augus?

It’s a tough call, really. I mean they’re both very good at what they do when it comes to touch and sensuality, and they have such a different style. Like Ash is pretty much trained up in trigger point and myofascial release massage, along with lymphatic drainage/relaxation massage. But Augus has his own technical knowledge of anatomy, the body and pressure points, and they’re both really attentive and responsive to the person they’re touching.

I would say Ash’s are a little warmer and affectionate and more likely to lead to sex, and Augus’ are probably more technically correct and more likely to lead to actual healing, but that they’re both on par for actual quality.

How good would Augus be at giving massages? With his pressure point knowledge and all.

AMAZING. Augus is AMAZING at giving massages. And I’ve actually got it written down in the chapter plan that Gwyn will be discovering that at some point later in The Court of Five Thrones.

*grins*

just a quick gwyn and augus while i’m here because i might as well practice lineart

I love your linearts of these guys so much (and everyone in this universe), but I particularly love this because of the expressions on their faces, and the way Augus is above Gwyn. Idk, I know it&#8217;s minimalistic / lineart based? But it&#8217;s evocative and I really love it. &lt;3&#160;

So I wrote a thing… *runs away to hide under a rock*

This thing that Nia wrote is actually really awesome - a short, feelsy fic about Gwyn - and seriously very cool. :D

This sounds like a job for Quid Pro Quo verse! (Though I imagine you are too busy to add another project to your list, but damn would I be there with bells on for that.) ^_^

It may be coming in the Wildness Within verse! (Which is a feral/wild!Gwyn verse, that I’m about three chapters through). But it will definitely come. Oh yes, it will.

Those three aren’t going to elude me forever. *makes grabby hands at the Triple Crown pairing*

I misread part of the "fucking Ash" ask as "Augus fucking Gwyn fucking Ash" and my brain tried to melt from the hot. Just thought you should know.

I kind of…misread it too. Ehehehe.

What a beautiful world we live in, that we can misread things in such a way. *grins*

So does that mean the raven prince was weird for his obsession with beautiful people or did he just like beautiful landscapes that much more beyond reason?

Yes, actually, the Raven Prince as a little unusual for his obsession with beautiful people - especially as it went above and beyond even by Seelie standards. To have people in his Court simply because they were pretty by his standards was something most people tolerated because they found in all other ways he was a wise ruler.

The Unseelie in particular, are - overall - meant to reject the norms of beauty of the times; since so many of the species represented by the Unseelie are ugly or grotesque, to deliberately invoke feelings of disgust or repulsion or fear in humans (since that might be how they feed). The Raven Prince was somewhat an anomaly in that sense - and it was likely connected to his own serious body dysmorphia whenever he was in human form.
