Under My Skin 10 - Whose The B*tch Now? by LJ-Phillips Under My Skin 10 - Whose The B*tch Now? by LJ-Phillips

Also feel free to check out main story-line Skins fav.me/d5mol00


Never ever insult or disrespect Jordan in front of Tyr. It's one of his triggers. Although violent, Tyr seldom loses his temper but here he just back-handed Cal (short for Caliban, the Skin next to him) with the fist closest to him and with enough force and speed to split the skin on his knuckles.

Believe it or not, Cal isn't totally bad - just one of the more primitive Skins (you'd be surprised how many there are) and being new to the Coven, he doesn't know about Tyr's feelings for Jordan. He's closer to Rabbit in age than Vinnie or Tyr and his jocky attempts to impress the older, higher ranked Skins often back-fire (as you can see here.)

Notes: If any of you are wondering why Tyr isn't as hairy as any of the other Skins, the answer is Tyr shaves most of his body hair.

Vanessa: I prefer a man who's hairy...and Caliban? An ugly, fucked up son of a witch? Ooooh. :heart: The name does NOT do the cutie, Justice.

Vinnie: (stares at her in horror) GOOD GOD, RABBIT IS MULTIPLYING INTO HUMAN FEMALES!!

Oh, this cracked me up :lol: And yep, you caught the Shakespeare ref there :) I always felt sorry for Caliban personally. I felt he was more a victim then a monster in the play. 
Poor Vinnie - you've described his nightmare - Rabbit multiplying, whether as human females or multiple versions of himself :lol:

True, the poor son of a witch was the product of his upbringing.

Caliban: Miss Masters, I've been watching you and I have to say.....I want you in the Worst Way!

Vanessa: :? The "Worst Way?" Honey, the worst way I can think of is Standing up in a Hammock!!

First time I ever see emotions from Tyr, and it's simply priceless. the second panel is simply epic. Cal's expression like many animals do in heat is hilarious, and Tyr's shock and wrath, down to his veins' showing, it's just supreme. every detail well placed.

and my owh my, seems like Jordan is one serious trigger for Tyr. So clear and focused and wrathful...

out of curiosity, Tyr clips his nails too? :p

and Cal. Really does seem young and... Primitive in a way. I pity the fool. :XD:

Oh, you've made my day :hug:
Tyr's a bit of toughie to paint regarding emotions because he's quite restrained. Glad they came across well here :)

Absolutely! They've known each other since the Coven rescued him in his late teens or so and he's absolutely devoted to her.
She helped put his mind back together after what happened to him. But more on that at a later stage.

Actually, no :) He often leaves his claws because it looks more intimidating (see his hands here [link] )

Love your description of Cal looking like an animal in heat - he's very male and very basic, although he does evolve (slightly.)

This piece my my entire weekend. I haven't commented earlier because I couldn't. I just folded in half on lay head on the table laughing. I mean... really. just look at it! :rofl:

d'aww.
owh Jordan. I'm starting to think of her as the coven's trump card.

Sometimes. it does look creepy in a way, but I just thought glorious thumbs ov doom that he clips them too since he's a male of power, and I really can't see how he manages daily with such hulking nails. the bigger the more fragile.

well, he doesn't seem like a bomb-site like the rest of the older characters, which makes me think he'll get less handling. and less wits bestowed upon him.
but he's adorable in a way. he's a dummy. :dummy:

Thanks :dance: I'm so glad to hear it!!!!

She really is :)The only one able to handle all kinds of threats from physical to psychic.

Ah, you raise a valid point - the answer is that Skins nails are incredible tough - more like horn than fragile nails and don't break easily at all.

Nope, he's fairly well adjusted. Although the poor guy is always putting his foot in his mouth. Glad you think so - he's a dummy but a likable one :highfive:

*made my entire weekend.

a tough cookie. I just wonder if there are any other psychics in the coven other than her.

explains quite a lot. :la:
I volunteered at a zoo and got to pat an orangutan, and their nails were quite robust. they look like human's but incredibly tough, just as said.

Out of the skins I saw, he's probably the least threatening one. as said, a likable dummy. :highfive:

Ah, thanks :hug:

There are a couple but psychics like her, with the ability to control Skins and Smoke's shifting, are very rare. She's actually (rollover to see)SPOILER

Volunteering at a zoo must have been quite an experience and orangutans are endearing animals (or so I've always thought.) And yeah, Skins' nails are closer to animal claws than human nails :)

Yeah, he's nowhere in Tyr or Vinnie's class in term of intimidating or fighting. He's a lovable galoot.

why are you thanking me? :O_o:
:hug:

...you forgot who you're dealing with eh? You already told me too much. :evillaugh:

well, I was at the ape department half of the time. it was awesome when I got behind the cages and into the enclosures, but most of my part could be summed up with "sweep-scrub-feed". it was quite the hassle and I got blisters after three days of that. so I ended up rotating between the birds and kitchens and then back to the apes.
that would make perfect sense. :p

indeed. :meow:

I trust you with the undercover information :iconthespyplz: and know you will use it well!

Ah, I guess that "sweep-scrub-feed" would be the majority of your routine - you've described my time with cats perfectly (being cats, they only love me when it suits them, otherwise I'm apparently just there to cater to their needs.)Blisters - ouch! Birds must have been nice as well (not sure about the kitchen but that's my own personal bias. I'm not good in kitchens :( My food comes out inedible and I tend to drop plates.)

Ah, you noticed the vein - I think Tyr's a pretty stressed person and the veins pop-up when he hits overload :) When he gets angry, he gets really angry and all that repressed frustration comes boiling out.

Oh good - I love elevators - one of the best parts about living in an aprtment :D
Thanks so much :glomp:

Poor Cal - he has this amazing ability to piss off every single person in his vicinity. Later he actually annoys rabbit (whihc isn't easy - rabbit is so easy going.)
Indeed, he and Vinnie nearly killed each other during a sparring session together (they're not allowed to spar together anymore.)
Veiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin!!

Oh dear, it doesn't fun for you to take them at all :hug: Yeah, there are sometimes jerks in elevators but seeing we all know each other in the building, you get that less in the elevators I take.

Ah, thanks so much - I'll be uploading more this week :dance:

oh my god. Rabbit. down boy. 8DDD
well, at least the sparring is fun to watch. -grabs frozen berries-

Heh, Jordan always enjoys watching the guys sparring ;)

Oh good, at least you don't have to use them too often.

And yes, you've nailed it :lol: Either folks want Rabbit or they want to get away from him. That's Jordan's reasoning when Vinnie brings up children - they have to look after Rabbit :lol: (Jordan's not a naturally maternal woman.)Ah, headcanon - I always have time for that :D
