UPDATE 13/02: Please let me know how gallery.luana.me looks and works for you! I need some feedback ^^
Hello my sweet friends!
Things are going well in life and work; my muse is also back, both to continue my novels and short stories, and all my other fictional worlds, including those strictly connected to my imaginary family -- the Berter family, but you may have known it as the Prime family in the past, when it was still mostly fanfictional; now, with all the changes and "transfers" as I explained in On Motherhood and YOUR Characters
, the family also changed last name to 'Berter'.Planet Yoreh
is an alien world from an alternate universe that I created to transfer my motherly feelings for the mummies from Mummies Alive!
, the 90s cartoon show I still love so much. Yoreh is a world where no "modern day" technology exists; the way people live there reminds of ancient Rome and other places in the B.C. era. Yoreh is organized in city-states, each ruled by a Regnant, and the economy is based on currency that was agreed upon by the First Regnants (the first to rule city-states upon their creation in Yorehn history). At the point in the story when I meet those that will become adopted children, there is a war between the city-state of Nabina, where they live, and that of a Regnant called Rufus, who aims to take control of the nearby city-states to increase his power.
Yorehns are amphibious beings; they can breath even in water, but they can't live in water for more than six hours in a row. Their skin is green-ish, their hair color ranges from gray to white.
There are four Yorehns I adopted in my imaginary family; three of them are in the artwork below (sorry, I have yet to color these guys):*click on the picture to open a new window with a larger version of this image*
In this picture:
- Jarlan O'Mazet, chief of the East Section of the royal palace of the city-state of Nabina, planet Yoreh.
- Aleron O'Kath, chief medic and strategist of the East Section of the royal palace of Nabina.
- Naara E'Tosan, medical assistant of Aleron at the East Section.
I didn't ink Azher O'Sonek
, construction worker of the city-state of Nabina, so he's not present in this picture.
Jarlan represents Ja-Kal in my heart; Aleron represents Rath; Naara represents Nefer-Tina. (And of course, Azher represents Armon.) I kept a few similarities with the mummies from the show, if you look closely (as well as in their backstories; for example, Ja-Kal lost his wife and son to the past, while Jarlan never got married, his girlfriend married another man and their son, that he raised himself, died at age 7 due to an illness).
However, even in this case, they're not the same characters.
I hope to upload some colored pictures (to my self-hosted gallery, that I will link here in journals like I did today) next week. For the story, I'm still working on it, and I will share it as a PDF ebook to any good soul and friend who will like to read it -- beware, though, that I do write scenes of mom-child bonding through breastfeeding even when the child is not a little one anymore, even an adult; more about it here This may be my only hope... (IF YOU READ, BE KIND)
and here If you're watching me and haven't received a Note
. So if you don't want to read those parts, let me know in advance and I will censor them from your file.
Other Upcoming Updates
I'm also working on my adoption story with Seedpost
, the Electronian robot I created to transfer my motherly feelings from Sidian07
's OC Dragonslash (that you should definitely check out
To give you a few hints: Seedpost was a victim of a terrorist attack in a suburb of Delea-City on planet Electronia; he was talking university plans with his parents and sibling at dinner, but when the bomb exploded, he lost everything, including the left half of his body, that was patched with spare components and parts. When I meet Seedpost, it's inside the hospital where he's trying to heal his body scars, but especially his emotional ones. He's a pacifist and doesn't want revenge over the terrorists, but he does want justice. I'm in the hospital with my ex father-in-law Advancer One, who's a member of the Electronian Council and is taking care of the case, because I wanted to see if I could bring a bit of comfort to those poor robots who lost everything; that's how I meet Seedpost. When I return to the hospital a week later, he tells me he's missed me, strangely, and I do too, so... that's how story begins.
