It’s Fennekin! Finally got this done! Fire was hard to figure out!
- The protests are being held in order to achieve universal suffrage in Hong Kong. Although democracy had been promised for 2017 in 2008, China announced this August that Hong Kong people would only be able to vote from a pool of 2-3 specially selected candidates (all of whom…
So I didn’t win the contest which was…expected haha. But i learned so much while working on this it was totally worth the shot! I’m reposting it without the text and deleting the old post. Thank you very much for all your support <3
I’m currently working on some of the fanarts you guys suggested and will post them this week! ^___^
I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.
You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.
Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.
A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.
On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.
So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.
As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.
Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.
First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.
Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.
You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

I keep reminding myself to post this but I`ve never did :A: This is the mini artbook that was gave as a price for the contest I did last year!
WARNING Incoming tldr:
I don`t remember if I mention that “Ria” was the tower where the game took part and also I don`t remember if I told you the backstory of this ilustrations so I`m going to give them a brief resume of each(Ha ha, “brief” you say?)
Notice all this ilustrations follows depending of which route you got at the end!
- For Vosges, he doesn`t accept Os request to be on her side as advisor. It took around two years for him to make up his mind. In those years he went to pay a visit to the towns that were nearby his own to talk to people and see how they were doing. On the picture you see him with Os on the remaining two years as her advisor. He works really hard for her and for those people he met on his travels. Also If you ever wondered he DID have a big crush on Os before his town incident ^o^! But he got some heavy mixed feelings after. Does he loves her now? Sometimes he does, sometimes he doesn`t, like a thing like that would exist! But it does. Vosges is one of my favorite characters from TKOT, sadly, he is the kind you can`t “mend”. So he will never consider confessing his ambiguos feelings for Os :_:- In the picture he looks like he has 17 years old, but his real age would be 28.
- For Gervase, things goes defenitely better! Os sends her servants to clean his old room(The one he had as a puppy) But they forgot to clean up some old drawings when he used to hang with Os and Corvus(Yeah they were bff until Gervase got a breakdown) They were soiled with dirt(It`s dirt! Not shit! Gervase is an educated dog!)And he kind of feels guilty, so he can`t sleep. That`s why Os cames and tries to confort him as she used to do as a child(Caressing his fluffy hair hehe)
I will continue Lilja and Corvus later because they are the longest ones. orz
