Belated Waystray Saturday stuff!
Birdy redesign! She’s a bit over 1 foot in length (about the size of a small peregrine) and a hunting bird-thing. Waystray universe birds tend to have raptor-like features like teeth, lizard-like feathered tail, scaled patches of skin or finger-like appendages on their wings. Birdy, being built for speed and precision, leans more towards bird features.
Devon keeps Birdy mostly for company, but she is also well trained and helps him pick out shiny bits from other peoples houses. Devon, being all about speed himself, has picked one of the faster breeds of bird-thing he could find and has been keeping and training them over a few generations. Devon fears losing his birds at least a little more than he should and refuses to use them for hunting purposes. They’re only buddies (and thieves, his greed surpasses his fear here…)
Otherwise, mostly working on more background and world building still - specifically the evolution of language, this week. Difficult because we’re taking into account tens of thousands of years of history and language honestly evolves pretty darn quickly on that sort of scale.

I actually have never read it ever, although I have had one person mention that Devon reminds them of a character from it :O

#art #dumb #humble bee #autocorrect
My phone auto corrected bumble bee to humble bee and I thought it was cute.
On a similar note, my window planters have been getting a consistent big, fat bumble bee visitor who says hello to each and every flower in the morning.

Hitch knew the score
SPECIFICALLY: this was due to the fact that, as a young child, his father had sent him to the local police station with a note for the officers saying to lock him up for 10 minutes as a punishment. He was told that this is where people go when they do bad things. His phobia of policemen kept him from ever learning to drive simply because that would mean he’d more likely have to deal with them. His fear of police was pretty hardcore, not really a conscious concern about the role or power of them within society.
