Art and Rage (Open) (Come Join Meeee!)

Post by Steve Rogers on 12/24/2017, 1:12 am

Liam:

Liam sat at the edge of the table and shifted weight in his wheelchair as he stared, irritated, at the canvas before him. A friend had recently suggested taking up art as a way to creatively release stress, but painting only seemed to increase his stress further. It was supposed to be a pegasus, but it looked like a lumpy, winged ostritch. Liam cursed under his breath.

Arian walked in like a storm, shouting into her phone in Italian. Her skirt blazed around her legs as she picked her way through statues and canvases, trying not to knock any of them over as she kept arguing loudly with the person on the other end. With a quick motion she undraped her canvas, which showed Avengers fan art in art nouveau style, with elegant arabesques, circles, and dainty patterns.

"Oh yeah? Then why don't you get off your lazy butt cheeks and do something about it?" she snapped. "These children are... -- yes, I know -- Yes, I understand that sir, but -- Jesus, will you let me talk?"

She grabbed her brushes as if she was going to stab her own painting with them. At the snap of her fingers, one of the palettes rose from the table, loaded with gleaming pastels. She mixed some with the tip of her brush and added light blue accents to Thor's armour as she harshly spoke her mind, holding the phone squeezed tightly between her jaw and neck. After a few more curt angry words, she hung up, although it looked more like a headbutt to the screen.

"Jerk," she said. (It's a lie, she didn't say that, but this site is PG13.)

She was so angry that she'd smudged her golden make-up during the argument, but she didn't care to fix it. Right now, art was her therapy and she needed to calm down. And find a solution to this whole mess.
It was only when she looked around for more colour that she saw there was someone else in the room....who probably had heard everything.

"Oh gods. I'm so sorry you had to witness that," she said.

Liam:

For a moment, all the poor boy could do was stare. He wasn't trying to be rude, that was the last thing on his mind. However, there was so much to take in that his brain simply refused to function.

First of all, this girl, whoever she was, was beautiful. Second, she was terrifying. Liam was a peacemaker, and never one to land himself in the middle of a confrontation. This girl, whoever she was, had a certain fire in her personality. It was attractive, Liam couldn't deny, but he worked hard to push that thought away. He didn't even know this girl. Again, he really didn't want to be rude.

Third, and perhaps most importantly, was her art. Not. Fair. His own masterpiece already looked awful, but next to hers, it was downright pitiful. Carefully, and blushing furiously at his own poor craftsmanship, he leaned over his paper and covered it up.

"Totally fine. Don't even worry about it," he said, his voice cracking midway through. His face turned and even deeper shade of red and he smiled, trying to cover up how fervently he was praying for death in that moment. Really? A voice crack? What was he, thirteen?

"I, ah... good doodle," he said, pointing to her art. Aaaaaaand he ruined it. ... A doodle? Was he for real? "I mean... art. Not a doodle. Not... Beautiful. I mean, beautiful! It is beautiful! The art. ...Not the men. I mean..." He closed his mouth and returned to his own drawning without saying anything else.

He suddenly began to question his divine heritage. Somehow, he's inherited nothing from Aphrodite.

"I wouldn't be mad if you found the men beautiful." Arian chuckled. He was handsome, but when he blushed like now he looked just like the kind of guy she liked to hang out with.

"Thank you though, much appreciated," she said with a distinct Italian accent. "I'm sorry I was so loud, it's just this....this greedy, self-serving @ss," she spat, gesturing at her phone. "But anyway, are you working on something too?" The guy was trying to cover his canvas but Arian strode over in a few moments, brushes in hand, her palette bobbing behind her like a balloon on a string. "I promise I won't laugh or mock," Arian assured. "We children of Apollo, we understand the struggle."

"Apollo, eh?" he asks. "Aphrodite," he says with the suavest smile he can manage. "Name's Liam," he holds out a hand. "And this is... ... ...my... pegasus," he says and wilts as he gestures to the ostrich-thing on the paper.

"Honestly, I don't know how you do it. I've been here for, like, two hours and this is all I've got to prove for it. That and a couple of paper cuts,"

Arian chuckled, "Hey, don't beat yourself up. The wings are pretty well done. Here," she said, swapping her brush for a pencil, "this is a really good trick to get the proportions right." She did a few sketches on his paper, giving him tips on how to draw texture and silhouettes, or make the image look 3D. She was talking animatedly with lots of gestures, the pencil smudging her fingers.
