Under My Skin 2 - What's Your Flavor? by LJ-Phillips Under My Skin 2 - What's Your Flavor? by LJ-Phillips

You can also check out the main storyline here in Skins fav.me/d5mol00


Rabbit has a bit of a thing for Captain Tyr (the man's job requires him to carry his own handcuffs, need I say more :eyes:) and when Rabbit actually likes someone, he can shift from smooth talker to nervous babbler.

Tyr is...Tyr. He's so secretive that nobody know much about his love life. Apart from the fact that he's carrying a torch for Jordan. But he also goes out of his way to flirt with Rabbit. Possibly because he wants to irritate Vinnie (Vinnie sees Rabbit as part of his pack and Tyr as bad for him) or just possibly....because he's interested.

Now sure what you mean. Beat up Rabbit? Tyr enjoyed being teased by Rabbit - even before they were a couple, he had a soft spot (or hard one) for him ;)

it's just that from what I know of Tyr he doesn't like being talked too and doesn't take crap from no one, so I thought he would do that here.

Oh you're right there :nod: This shows that Tyr always made an exception for Rabbit - he indulged Rabbit's eccentricities because he liked him :)

So, I was reading through some old strips...

Is it just me, or did Tyr's favorite ice cream flavor change? :eyes:

I decided that banana flavour just had more subtext in this strip ;)

Um, okay, now I'm confused. What information (or misinformation) did the urban dictionary give you? Cos the joke in this strip was that Rabbit isn't just into vanilla (basic) bedroom activities. He likes occasional kinky games with handcuffs and maybe a little bit of pain now and then. That's all :nod:

Let's say, that all definitions about it on UD are about anal ^^; pl.urbandictionary.com/define.…

Oh no, that particular kind of anal sex (the kind involving scat) definitely wasn't what I was referring to! I just meant vanilla as in vanilla sex isn't Rabbit's thing.  Having found out what rocky road means, I'm going to replace it with another flavor (banana - nothing associated with that flvor except phallic undertones.) Thanks for the heads-up ;)

LJ-Phillips Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2014  Professional
Oh yes :D And when he gets your double entendre and makes it clear that he's interested in more then vanilla as well ;) I think Tyr's wrist band also gave him a clue (the side it's worn on and the color indicates that Tyr's a heavy SM top) - most people not in the scene wouldn't pick that up but Rabbit, knowing the scene, did. So he knew they were sexually compatible. And could enjoy ice cream together afterwards :lol:

Oh, I didn't notice a wrist-band.


And enjoying ice cream is A MUST in a relationship. :D



I love how you write AND draw these two, it's equal parts "Story" and 'Art!!"


And speaking of things not first noticed.

Well, it's quite subtle :D Tyr and Rabbit developed this flirtation quite early on in their interaction (but nothing came of it for years because Tyr kept up his Mr. Straight act on the island :facepalm:) Didn't stop him flirting subtly with Rabbit and dropping some innuendos into conversations with him though.

Thank you so much - yeah, you won't often see a blushing Rabbit. Tyr's about the only one who has this effect on him :heart:
Yeah, he's Mr Ice Cube :iconbadassplz:
Ah, so glad you picked that up :nod: I wanted his arms to be quite veiny like a bodybuilder's who uses roids - side-effect of the suppressants he uses.

Not a prob - I've been there, believe me - it can be really frustrating. Glad you got it resolved :)

Even though I kinda disliked rabbit at the beginning, now it's more towards the he's not such a douche...
and that face on the 3rd panel. just.. just... dammit Rabbit! I forgive you everything!

I just think of Tyr as a man with balls; even to the tiniest thing. a person with respect to the other will look at them but not in the eye. or is it because Tyr isn't really interested? poor rabbit.

LJ-Phillips Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2013  Professional
Yeah, Rabbit seems to be a character that folks either love or hate - not much middle ground. I'm glad that you're warming slightly to him - I hope this strip shows another side to his character :)

Hm, you raise an interesting point. Tyr is very Alpha (like Vinnie) and I don't think he considers anyone (apart from one or two exceptions) to be on the same level as himself. He's also quite a distant person so he's not terribly responsive in general. It's funny - he's much more responsive towards Rabbit when Vinnie's around. Because he knows how much it gets to Vinnie (who loathes him and can't stand the thought of Rabbit, his substitute kid brother, ever getting involved with Tyr.)

to be honest, after the aftermath, I kinda like him. :lmao:
sure does.

perhaps all of these meds or what ever he takes to repress his natural urges or a Skin fog his brain and ability to respond. still, handsome bastard. you simply manage to do amazing work every single time with your characters' depth.

they really hate each other it seems. I bet the only reason they haven't torn up each other into shreds yet is because they both belong to the coven and have to behave like good, rebuked hounds.
For some strange reason, I see Tyr as shorter than Vinnie. males have that moment when they just get into this "stare contest". usually the one looking down wins. :p
