So one of my main personal, non-portfolio/art critique things I wanted done at NYCC this year was to get my hands on some Vesperia figures. Harder task than I originally thought because fuck you too Bandai-Namco booth, Xillia is wonderful and I love it but what about the rest of your Tales games?
Eventually, I stumbled upon a booth with some blind boxes. They had two left of the Tales of School charms. One-in-Eight chance and a desperate need for either an Estelle or Yuri, I said fuck it and bought them both.
I’m taking this as a sign. Expect the next Vesperia related piece over on my art tumblr to be high school AU shenanigans.
The other day I had a really good idea for a story:
A high school Shakespeare club angrily splits into two groups when they can’t agree on the correct interpretation of Romeo and Juliet. One group thinks it’s a cautionary tale about the stupidity of youth and shallow lust; the other group think it’s a beautiful tragedy about poisonous hatred conquered by love. Reconciliation seems impossible-
-then a person from one group falls in love with a person from the other
#it would be better if somehow EVERY OTHER SHAKESPEARE WAS HAPPENING AT ONCE#like you got a benedict and beatice b-story#and then somebody see’s their dad’s ghost#and there’s cross-dressing#and three upperclassmen tell macbeth he will be drama club president
oh my god I need this
nobody dies but SEVEN PEOPLE ARE EXPELLED
