Please to be reading this lovely, lovely fic!

I was inspired by a bunch of gorgeous images my author sent me--of amazing violet night skies--and the covers of the comic "Invisible Republic", as well as a bunch of men's fashion pics for the garb (thank you, pinterest!) and this stock photo for the drawing:
I had my teen sons hold hands as ref for the cover image...boy, are they troopers. They even laughed and asked, "Is this for Wincest, MOM?" (They're 16 and 18; they're well aware of fandom, ha!) For the record, they didn't care. They know it's all make-believe. And they also don't care if men hold hands. Kids of artists...bless 'em.
