Under My Skin 20 - After Morning Shocks by LJ-Phillips Under My Skin 20 - After Morning Shocks by LJ-Phillips

Also feel free to check out main story-line Skins

In the last Under My Skin, Tyr set out to get wasted after seeing Jordan and Vinnie dancing together. Well, no drinking party is complete without Rabbit so guess who decided to join him?
You can see Rabbit's lost his shirt as per usual, although he still has his pants (Take my word for it.)

When Rabbit's really drunk, he's much more relaxed and less inhibited around Tyr. As for Tyr, well, he seldom drinks. Although his Skins metabolism means he can't get alcohol poisoning, his suppressants cut into it, meaning he can still get really trashed. With interesting...consequences. Heh heh heh....

So, do you think they slept together or there's an innocent explanation? Oh, and if you think they slept together, do you think it's Tyr first time with a guy or he's been with men before?

Notes: Because he's a Skin, Tyr's hair and stubble grows very fast as you can see. He normally shaves about three times a day and he shaves his head daily. Note the Coven tattoo. Now that's dedication. Oh, and Tyr's alarm normally goes off very early but Rabbit just kept hitting the snooze button, which is why Tyr's overslept and missed his early morning training session with the recruits.

Love the empty glass scene! Know it all too well and the expression on his face when he hears Rabbits voice.... surprise ! Great strips have been reading them over the last week and am totally hooked.  I will proudly  confess to being a fanboy of your work.

So glad you like that scene - it's one of my favorites :) It was a heck of a surprise for Tyr - years of hiding his bisexuality and restricting his encounters with men to off-island....blown in a single night. I'm delighted you've been enjoying them - I try to upload work at least once a week. Thank you so much - I'm honored :hug: 

:rofl: How his eye bulged out at the end. yeah, absinthe is a Bitch, it's the only drink that effects The Sea Witch, Vanessa in my mind's eye.



Gray: That would be YOU.

Vanessa: What!? But i would NEVER....(Picks up bottle in her hand from table) Oh Amphitrite's Tits, did I drink Absinthe?

Gray: That bottle, and about half of this one. (holds up bottle) And two others over there...

Quartz: because you don't know hwo t Shareeee!! (drunk) Beyyootch!!

Gray: Easy, tough guy.

Vanessa: But....(frantic) I don't remember any of that, ABSINTHE MAKES ME BLACKOUT!!

It's not a friendly drink at all :D 

And it seems Vanessa has led Quartz astray and actually got him drunk :D

And cursing poor Vinnie tch, tch! At least she has absinthe as her excuse for that.

So, what does this version of the black spot curse do?

(The last time Vanessa blacked-out from absitnhe, she stripped and shaved a bell-boy, set fire to a barn and also killed Jimmy Hoffa.)

This Black Spot Curse, basically, it causes a sorta black hole to appear in Vinnie's chest on his heart, it slowly expands, sucking up all his love, emotions, good-luck, and fortune, till it swallows his heart and kills him. Turning his corpse into a crazed, skin-zombie.)</em>


Vanessa: :iconcryforeverplz: VINNIE, NOOOOOO!!! (sitting in Caliban's lap, sobbing, with ink smearing down her face) OH, NEPTUNE, I JUST GOT HIM LIKING ME TOO!! *Sob* I was Gonna be Gracie's godmother, and now look what's I've done...

Caliban: Don't worry, babe, it's not like...

Vanessa: Not like 'What?'

Caliban: Well, is was gonna say, "It's not like your used to doing such terrible, cruel things." but you DID blow up Atlantis, mutating all it's inhabitants into the fishy-freaks they are today, and disfiguring yourself?

Vanessa: AHHH!! :iconraritycryplz:

(She buries her face into Cal's shoulder, who looks up with devastated face, at pissed Gray and passed out Quartz)

Caliban: I should've just shut up and kissed her, right? (get's nods) DAMN IT!!


Don't worry, Vinnie lives, thou the absinthe is banned from the Island Forever. Poor Caliban, he makes up for his callous remark later, taking Vanessa to the Cheese-cake factory.

just wondering here, what does rabbit sound like?
mainly wondering cause of the black speech bubbles, most people give them to people with ghostly or inhuman voices.

Ah, glad someone picked that up :)

Smokes like Rabbit have an unusual timbre to their voice, almost as if as they speak, the words echo inside your head.
 It's very disconcerting for those not used to dealing with them. And his sister, Gray, is the same.

Is it a bit like a buzz in their voice?
If so then rabbit is a lot like one of my races, ethereals. Beings comprised of a smoky kind of energy.

No, it's not a buzz.
LJ-Phillips Aug 19, 2013  Professional
And I highly doubt the races are similar.
