SARO YOU ARE A BLESSING AND A SAINT
Spoiler: Pinwheel+ Cartwheel
Recolored Pin and Cart, this time just taking colors from (probably doctored tbh) pictures of the galaxies! Some more backstory, call me out if it doesn't fit with what anyone was thinking- they were essentially child Magical Kid soldiers, and were both very effective. After their service was up Pin enlisted in a more elite mecha-unit corps, while Cartwheel backed the fuck out of the military and ended up in philosophy as a way to figure out what to do with their life. Both of them think the other is running away.
From me own bijou :P
Also for convenience gonna reattach the draws of dandy
Spoiler: these are v big sorry
some importations from discord
Leo quote barf incoming:
Spoiler: Leos Job
CodyCatLast Wednesday at 12:23 PM
They don´t really have a job. they have a spaceship, and for a fee they will take you and or your stuff from place A to place B.
or pick something up and bring it to you
IvyLBLast Wednesday at 12:44 PM
i mean idk if you want to call Dandy's work a ~real job~
CodyCatLast Wednesday at 12:46 PM
it´s a kinda unethical job but plenty of real jobs are
i meant it in the sense of, if someone asks them to put down what their job is Leo tends to go 'Uuuhhhhh trans....port...?'
the don´t have A job, they pick up jobs
IvyLBLast Wednesday at 12:49 PM
..... ho fancy is their ship
i feel like Dandy was taxi'd around by leo at some point and did way too many social media posts aboard
CodyCatLast Wednesday at 12:50 PM
Nooot super fancy? It´s not Junk, but not luxury either. They go places luxury ships wouldn´t wanna though
bc they go anywhere they don´t get shot at
IvyLBLast Wednesday at 12:52 PM
dandy probably doesn't actually go for super super fancy most of the time anyways bc they likely can't afford it
CodyCatLast Wednesday at 12:53 PM
now That leo can do
They´re not dirt cheap but reasonable.
CodyCatLast Wednesday at 1:36 PM
Leo makes passengers sign a thing that in effect says they told the passenger if they´re going to a place here space weed is illegal, if you get caught with space weed it´s your fault, not theirs
they also don´t knowingly do illegal transports. they wanna keep their license, thanks(edited)
IvyLBLast Wednesday at 1:42 PM
dandy, slipping that Dank Space Kush into their phone bag 'oops owo'
CodyCatLast Wednesday at 1:51 PM
look, just don´t make Leo notice it ok?
it´s in there with 'Don´t get drunk and wreck my ship, I live here'
kasLast Wednesday at 1:59 PM
goj is. not allowed on leo's ship probably they're just Too Destructive
goj is probably not allowed on a lot of ships come to think of it
CodyCatLast Wednesday at 2:03 PM
Yeah, Leo basically considers passengers to be paying house guests. They make sure you have a nice comfortable trip but in return you gotta be a good guest and not damage the place or get them arrested
it´s part of their charm because it´s almost like you´re with someone taking in lodgers
much more personal than a luxury passenger ship
IvyLBLast Wednesday at 2:05 PM
leo..... runs a space bed and breakfast taxi fusion
CodyCatLast Wednesday at 2:05 PM
with a side of freight ship
IvyLBLast Wednesday at 2:06 PM
uber and airbnb had a space child and it's leo's ship
CodyCatLast Wednesday at 2:06 PM
yes, but there´s only one or two employees and its leo and leo-the-wyrm
CodyCatYesterday at 1:48 PM
Leo has a "brig" They have 0 authority to arrest anyone legally but as ship captain they can keep people more or less where they please. Its an extremely basic accommodation in the hold with doors they can lock and just send food in. Used for people trying to rob them mid flight and egregious assholes.
CodyCatYesterday at 1:53 PM
You get a copy of the house rules when you book your flight via spaceship etsy. They amount to "Dont be a dick"
The spaceship decor is leo coloured. They have a theme ok?
CodyCatYesterday at 1:55 PM
A collection of knickknacks representing what various planets imagine constellations containing stars of leo to be. So a lion for earth..
CodyCatYesterday at 2:20 PM
Leos knickknacks are basically anything involving a belief about one or more of "their" stars that is ok for outsiders to take. Since nit every species will do star pictures.
They´ll tell the stories about them to guests if asked
Spoiler: lorg, dandy being an eldritch menace
Spoiler: discord stuffs
ivy: i have Many Thinks on stellar evolution and spelfs because i was working on a thing with stars literally being people some time ago so yesssssss
the different phases probably don't affect spelfs that much it's the transitions between phases
like... red giant to white dwarf is Violent most of the time
i still feel like the later stages probably do impact some things?
but it's more like well you have a Different Physiological State Now so you gotta adjust initially
main phase transitions aren't that bad iirc but end of life transitions are rough
y ea h
mind you if white dwarves are more vulnerable to eldritch tempering and bouts of Nonsense it's likely most people just cope a lot better than Dandy who is a Mess
like... white dwarfs are pretty stable, for stars, but they don't have fusion happening anymore and that's probably fuckery for spelfs
goj is currently in that phase so they're... coping? mostly? is the mind currently driving jupes' body the original goj? who knows
i think my reasoning was 'no fusion happening anymore = way less star magic powers? = probably Dramatic Psychic Shielding Failures'
yeah that's a good thought on it
mind you dandy should presumably be In The Prime Of Their Life wrt magic rn
given it's a red giant exploding shit into the cosmos
that makes a planetary nebula
Oh god Leos magic has to be Some Fuckery
Since they get like, idk a slice of several stars?
dandy is a nebula in the process of being made, goj is a dying nebula
but mostly I feel like they just keep getting more and more Actually Relevant And Urgent visions and prophecies but by now they're just
Imma say being born in transit definitely had something to do with making Leo a anderer
'I already walked out on the Very Prestigious Position Of Military Priest Seer and going back now would look like quitting and I am too pretty to be a quitter!!!!! Being #JustDandy means seeing even dumbass decisions through to the end!!! Can't get all this merch redone!'
i love them
they are a massive idiot and probably get into Booty Guru On YOutube tier drama every couple centuries
