Dead Night Chapter 3 Unwelcome Relations
   Where I didn’t believe in jumping to conclusions, Avangelene’s note was enough to convince me that I wouldn’t like what I would find when I got back to the Guild. I was even sure her being absent from the place was on purpose. So, I decided I was always better safe than sorry, and went to retrieve my most prized swords from upstairs.
   The katanas had come into my possession during the brief years I had been running amok in Japan. I liked to call them Scylla and Charybdis, after the legend, since we have this silly tradition about naming our weapons. The two evils, one to kill Vampires, one for Shifters…for when the rapier was just a little too mundane.
   They were a little more difficult to hide, but with a longer cape and my specially designed holster, I managed it just fine, and went on my way.
   I tried in vain not to let the huge gates clang loudly as I shut them behind me. I had to remove a great deal of

Synergy Chapter One (World Creation Challenge)
Chapter 1
   I am not a superhero.
   At least…I’m not like the superheroes I read about in comic books as a kid. I’m not a moral warrior like Batman, or a god on earth like Thor. I’m not super strong or bad ass by nature with cool powers…what I do have however, is a messed up life, so I guess I’m half way there.
   I started writing all this down thinking I needed, like any good comic hero, an origin story…but that’s when I realised; I’m not a hero, I’m a lab rat. This isn’t a comic, it’s brutal, pain-in-the-ass reality.  Though to be honest, I think I prefer it that way. I can’t explain why, but I guess it’s best put like this: even Tony Stark started out as a dork with a stupid idea and a bad hand in life.
   So, this is my origin. It’s not impressive, but it’s not boring either. It is what it is, and I like to think I made my mistakes, but I d

Journal History


Imogen (Immy) Ilsabeth Laverick
Artist | Student | Varied
United Kingdom
Miss I. I. Laverick resides in the completely glamorous land of the West Midlands and considers herself ‘abandoned in this godforsaken era where people do not dress properly’, with a glitchy time travelling watch and a constant supply of tea. Miss Laverick is usually found in the local tea shop or book shop, and can be identified by her most outrageous (but clearly shameless) sense of style.

While her day job is studying to become a theatre costumier, her hobbies include historical mystery solving, collecting more books than she can humanly read and being frankly irritating about literature. She prides herself most in being wanted dead or alive by seven monarchs, ten Lords and a Count.

Hello old friends and followers!

I'm able to check in again and see how everything is going here on dA! As you may have seen in my status post, I handed in my first module of my degree on Monday. I'm proud of the final product, I did my best and I got some good feedback, so even though I'm a little conflicted about certain elements of it, I remain hopeful that it'll get me a decent grade. I've certainly learned a lot, and I suppose that is what matters!

Now, with this over with and me on a break before the next module brief (well, mainly, I still have a report and an illustration portfolio to get on with but it's a bit more chill than tirelessly sewing trousers). I don't know how long this peace will last because I know exactly nothing about the next module! From what I can tell, it will be a little more specific to costume so I'll hopefully be able to go mega historical with it, but hey, we'll have to see.

Anyway, I'm going to use my time off to make a few things for myself, do some artwork, and work on novels. I have been making quite a lot recently, although I haven't had chance to get many pictures, as they've either been given away or handed in. I will try to get some though soon! I made a pair of fancy time travel magpie trousers for my university module, and a green velvet military jacket for my friend's christmas present.


I am finally going to introduce you lot to my newest collaborative work soon!
With my time off, I am able to do a little more work to some WIPs I've had to set aside recently. I'm hoping to upload a few sketches and paintings and info on the main elements of 'The Beaumont and Elscrook Mysteries'. Since I consider dA my most personal platform, I'll probably go into a lot more detail on here than I will on Facebook and Instagram, mostly because I don't want to give away too much on the platforms we'll mainly be promoting on when it's ready to be properly announced, but here I might find some interesting crit and opinions and it would be cool to be able to actually share some of the work I've been doing that I'm not really 'allowed' to put on Facebook and instagram! I hope you guys enjoy it, I'm definitely super excited for this project!

Anyway, hope you're all doing ok!
The ever returning, TakaraYuuki :rose:
