Joyride by Nemhaine42 Joyride by Nemhaine42

I had to flip the image because, as a moron, I drew the entire scene the as if it were my own car. That is, I drew it with the steering wheel on the right hand side as it is in the UK. And of course, Evo is in America where the steering wheel is on the left. :stupidme:

And probably Lance's jeep would be an automatic and he, therefore, wouldn't have his arm hanging on to the gear stick as he is in the top panel. But that's a more minor niggle. You guys have manual cars too.

This sort of thing really irritates me in others - using slang from the writer's part of the world that makes no sense in the canon setting, for example - so I was so pissed off at myself. I mean, you saw that bold lettering at the top.

*sigh* Okay, I am calm.

This is inspired by two things. Number One: ~rainrach's conviction that Pietro was "HUGE into the gay clubbing scene". I agree and think that he would, on occasion, get really wasted and rely on bar staff to check his phone for someone to call and come get him. Also relying on them to pick 'home' rather than anything that might lead them to call his father. What a shit storm that would be.

Number Two: this fic by ~citizenjess [link] There is no specific time setting but it's pre-slash as this pic is meant to be. Here, Lance has developed enough feelings for Pietro that he would get up in the middle of the night to go collect him from some club. But not enough that he'll let him sleep face-down in his crotch. Or just minor revenge for the let-down of not getting head. :shrug:

Shutting up now.

Have wanted to comment on this because this is, like, the BEST THING EVER. Seriously, I think I'm in love with you.

I looked at this comic and was like,"OMG. I WOULD SO HAVE THIS HAPPEN! IT'S LIKE SHE READ MY--"*reads artist's comments*"O_______________O HOW CAN I LOVE A PERSON THIS MUCH?!" I AM SO HONORED that you agree with my insane theories. Seriously, seeing other people dig my canon makes it almost feel like real canon. I...I'm just so touched. :sniff:

I love the first panel so much, because I love Pietro's SUPER DRUNK face. He just looks like such a PLAYFUL, HAPPY DRUNK. The situation is just SO telling in that first panel ALONE. I also love their discussion. Pietro's so unphased. Lance is clearly a little bitter and pissy and so annoyed. It's fantastic.

Then, I totally love Pietro's sly move over, that is also so filled with telling action. Unbuckling the seatbelt and sliding over, WELL PLAYED. Lance's nervous face is THE BEST, TOO. He's like "BITCH. I WILL CRASH DIS MUTHAFUCKIN' CAR." It's just really well portrayed.

Also, the colors are really nice. It's so OBVIOUS they're in a car at night. And damn, that color is MIGHTY FINE on Pietro. I'm SERIOUSLY diggin' his club outfit. Damn. This whole DOES THINGS TO ME. I am saving it to my harddrive. FOREVER AND EVER. O___________O

Also, I've been WRACKING MY BRAIN trying to come up with a DECENT SCRIPT for a prequel comic to this. I WANT TO DRAW A PREQUEL COMIC TO THIS SO BAD. I mean, the comic itself works BEAUTIFULLY without anything else--in fact--I'm sure my addition of a "prequel" would REALLY only detract. But. G0DDAMMIT. This is SO AWESOME I just want to be a part of it somehow. ;.;

Seriously. Trying to draw a prequel to this. Want. So hard. Love, love, love, love, love, LOVE this. :+fav: :+favlove: :+onmyharddrivenowyoucleverbitch:

:glomp: I'm so glad you like it! I feel that your insane theories compliment my insane theories... so how can they not be true!?

I see Pietro as a really affectionate drunk, expressing things he either can't or won't when sober. Whoever he's with - Lance, Wanda, that cute guy by the bar - he'll be draped all over them telling them how much he likes them. Except, obviously, that cute guy at the bar is just a stand-in for Lancie.

I think Lance's driving is kinda reckless to begin with - in that teenage boy style. But it's one thing that I couldn't show in this comic without making it needlessly gigantic; I don't think Lance would be paying all that much attention to the road, it being night so there's not many other cars and Pietro feeling him up. If this were animated, I'd have other cars' headlights whizzing past and horns blaring so that Lance would get his head out of the gutter and pull the Jeep back on to their own side of the road. So, yeah, "BITCH. I WILL CRASH DIS MUTHAFUCKIN' CAR." is about right. "Seriously, Tro. There's a bridge coming up. You try some funny shit and I will drive us both straight off it."

As for Pietro's shirt colour. I worked for so long figuring out the best colour for him, only to find that those minty greens and teals that I like come straight from his battle uniform. Steve Gordon earned his money there.

Ugh, I actually had trouble getting this thing off the ground because I couldn't work out where it ought to start. When Pietro heads out the door and Lance warning him not to get as drunk as last time? "Hey man, just take it easy. Last time you wandered into a red light district, I'm not picking you up there again. The hookers were giving me weird looks." Or when Lance gets the phone call asking him to come pick Pietro up before he gets himself in trouble and Lance imagining all sorts of tragic crap happening? I also had this image of Cute Guy at the Bar handing Pietro over outside the club:

Cute Guy: Oh is this yours? My bad, he was kinda all over me you know?
Lance: Uh, he's not my boyfriend. I'm just here to pick him up take him
Cute Guy: Oh... well, he's tanked so he's all yours now.
Pietro: LANCIE! You came for me! *3*

Did I just take an hour to write this reply? It's not even that long... Clearly, I love you too.
