“Multifaro.” Multitasking. - 064/100 Themes.

Willow is me in college.

For the curious, an acid-base reaction produces water and a salt (a salt being an oxide-metal combination. NaCl, table salt, is just an example). It also can produces heat energy in an "exothermic" reaction. Trust me, this is important. If you remember how blood types work in Mondigan.

Willowren Solan belongs to Grace Fong, :iconfictograph:


An oil lamp burned in front of her Willow. Two more sat next to it with fully used wicks. She hated to be in the lab past midnight, but Enos had only given them three days for the assignment.

It was as if the blank notebook were laughing at her. She had to put something down on the paper at least. She scribbled, “The Silver War was not actually about silver, but a resource war that stemmed from the Akhari peoples’ lack of food.” But then she crossed it out.

Food. That would be good right now. Unwittingly, she stuck the back end of the pencil between her teeth.

She quickly spat it across the table. It tasted like iron and sulfur. It must have dropped into something, and she didn’t want to know what. She pushed the history book to the side. Yes, she’d probably work on that one later.

She pulled the chemistry book towards her. It may have had half the pages of the previous volume, but each word was twice as long. That weird boy who worked in the lab had bookmarked some of the pages with feathers. None of them were pages she needed.

She read out loud to herself, “An acid-base reaction produces…”

“An acid-base reaction produces…”

I don’t know.

Just. Fifteen. Minutes. She rested her head on the table and closed her eyes. A string of drool escaped onto the paper, covering the rest of the sentence.

"An oil lamp burned in front of her Willow."  I think you went to change it and the word didn't delete. ;)

Oh, Willow, poor girl.  I used to have a real hard time remembering not to chew on my lab pens.  I FEEL YA.

Aw, thank you!

u'r welcome

Ah, I'm learning that now!
Seriously. Doing my homework on soluble salts. Right now.

And Willow is just too likeable for someone who messes up all of my ships! Aw, I can't stay mad at her.

Yeah, haha. Now you'll ace chemistry because you won't forget it. Hahaha. Chemical engineering would have been my second option after computer science.


I feel like I am treading dangerous waters by asking this, but - what are your ships...?
worshipthesquid Sep 30, 2012  Student General Artist
I sincerely hope so. See, it's educational!

Nyeheheh. You will regret asking that, I promise you.
Specifically... Well, Rivek X Bohren was frankly adorable, if fated to result in tragedy. And somehow I felt like shipping Mirab with somebody, if only because she's so interesting.
Besides that, just about everybody with everybody else. Even the villains. No, scratch that, especially the villains.
Rivek and Willow just feels too perfect, somehow. I keep expecting one of them to turn out to have been a double agent all along. Or something equally unlikely.

...oh darn, I'm a shipper now, aren't I. DX

You're going to enjoy the month of November.

(If you read Homestuck, I'm goign to die laughing if you made a shipping grid of my chars...)
worshipthesquid Oct 2, 2012  Student General Artist
I... actually do have a small Nepeta-style shipping wall, but only Rivek and Bohren are featured due to so many characters and so little space. No shipping grids as of yet because you can never tell how big they'll get. Please don't die.

Am I allowed to ask why?
