Under My Skin 7 - Family Reunion by LJ-Phillips Under My Skin 7 - Family Reunion by LJ-Phillips
Previous fav.me/d67a3zf
Next fav.me/d6alg35

Feel free to check out the main storyline Skins fav.me/d5mol00


Ah, mystery lady's identity is revealed! Rabbit's sister and who says blood is thicker than water? Interesting times ahead!

Yes, Jordan got mad and whacked Vinnie over the head with a whiskey bottle. But to be fair, she didn't break his nose - he did that all by himself when he collapsed unconscious. The only thing worse than that is having your best friend save your life and then smirk about it while standing over you.

And what was Tyr doing while this violence was happening? Shouldn't he have intervened? But nay, he was too busy doing his job and arresting banana man for exposing his "banana" to the Director :lol:

Notes: Rabbit's nose and tips of ears sometimes go pink if he drinks too much too fast.
The last panel deliberately echoes mystery lady's first appearance

why is she crying?

Good question. Because she was just chewed out by a livid Jordan (for kissing Vinnie) and because she found out Vinnie, the man she used to love, is with someone else.

Heh, no that's Rabbit's big sister, Gray. But you raise an interesting point. Says alot about oh-so-straight Vinnie that his ex-girlfriend looks like his best friend Rabbit in drag :giggle:

Well, at lest Vinnie is still alive and breathing I thought Jordan was going to do a lot worst ( a shovel and 6 feet of dirt came to mind). The woman has got great restraint. I just love Rabbit little tid-bits. Oh, my word I never would have thought that Rabbit has a sibling (also I find it a bit ironic that he chose Dante as a cosplay now considering Dante is the younger out of the twins) and his expressions is priceless.

I know - I carefully considered her reaction but I think she is the most restrained of the three and besides, how can she make him feel guilty if he's dead?
Ah, thank you so much :hug: I really appreciate that.
Really? I chose the Dante costume because I knew he had a sibling. I didn't know he's the younger one - oh, good, that works out even better :)
Yep, after not hearing from her for nearly ten years, he hardly expected her to show up ion his turf :lol:

Ah, thank you - I thought it tied up nicely :) So happy you're excited with the direction this is going :dance:

Only when provoked - normally she's the calmest of the three but she's given up alot to be with Vinnie (a non-human) so she expects him to be faithful!

Poor poor banana man - nope, Jordan didn't do that to him. He resisted arrest (he was arrested for shaking his ahem "banana"at folks) and Tyr kneed him in the face :iconbruceleeplz:

Yeah, the blood was hectic! Regarding the floor, I prepare lots of backgrounds in advance so I can use them when I need them :)

AH, glad you caught the pink nose - he really shouldn't have downed an entire bottle of whiskey :whiskey: Ah, thanks :glomp: - glad that expression work!

Absolutely - it's only going to get more exciting (plus we get to meet Vinnie's daughter soon.)

True, true - both Vinnie and Jordan have taken alot of criticism for dating outside their races (Vinnie being a Skin and her a human.)

I agree - darn banana :iconbananasplz: Captain Tyr saving the day :iconsuperllamaplz:

I like to paint backgrounds in advance in case I need them later

When is Rabbit ever sensible? :lol:
He did, he did - he can't have his best friend dying, after all.

woahh, Jordan, sweetie!~ i request the highest of fives. i commend you on being able to unconscious-ify a man without destroying anything... its too easy to fracture skulls and break noses... hmm... -casually speaks from experience-
...awh, explains why mystery lady was so hot. she's related to Rabbit. explains everything. 8DD lookit that pout on her face. she's adorable.

ohh...! Last panel, Rabbit's so cute! <3 aslk;asfjkd;asfjl;dk feeeeeelsssss.

Poor banana man :banana: He will return!

:highfive: yeah, she's an expert at unarmed combat plus Vinnie (like most Skins) is really tough, much tougher than a human - he was hit by a car once and was up on his feet 15 minutes later and fighting mad! (And nope, it wasn't Jordan driving the car :lol:)

I'm scared but compelled to ask how you you know some much about fractures etc :iconscaredplz:

Yep, looks run in their family, I guess. They also have an older brother (the black sheep of the family but we'll only see him muuuuuuuuuuuuch later) whose also a looker :eyes: Ah, so glad you think she's adorable - let's hope Vinnie doesn't say anything like that in front of Jordan :)

Ah, I'm delighted you think shocked Rabbit is cute - poor Rabbit. Thing's are not going his way (he doesn't like his big sis at all!)

Good luck with the English paper :iconluckplz:

pfft. oh gosh, Jordan! you really are brilliant! you knocked down a grown man, a developed Skin,without breaking anything. You knocked him out. oh my god you genius. >D

? oh. how i know about fractures and jazz? ooh! i wanna be a doctor when im older, some kind of GP or something like that... i also broke a guy's nose by punching him in the face.
... he groped my boobs. enough said. what?! when you trust your friend that much that they have an arm around your shoulder, and then you feel a hand. on your chest. well, you know that things are gettin' real.

...oh. an older brother. -wiggles eyebrows- older guys me gusta. <3 oh gosh, sibling rivalry... things are going to get serious... ajljkafd dundunduuun~~

Banana man will return - count on it :iconbananasplz:
She is highly trained (esp. when it comes to taking down non-humans)and I think she was fighting mad - they say you have the strength of ten when you get angry enough :lol:

That's great - the world always needs committed doctors :)Sounds like the guy deserved it - I had something similar happen to me. You think some guy is your friend, you trust him and he gets handy. Not cool :( You must really pack a punch :iconpowplz: I hope he didn't press charges or anything.

Yep, picture a taller, more angular mature version of Rabbit with their sister's coloring :) Well, she ended up a doctor and he ended up in prison when their lives divulged so there's serious rivalry (plus he's always felt Vinnie like her better.)

I'm sure it went better than you thin and hey, at least it's over with :)

oh, the guy deserved it. well, to be fair, his friend spiked his drink. -we'reunderageshhhhhh- and yup, handsy he got. OTL yeah, taekwondo does that to you <3 he tried to press charges. key word: tried. but nah, it's a good joke we look back on now. :) kinda goes like, 'awhh, man, remember the time i got drunk and groped you? and now lookit this scar! good times, mang...'

Don't worry no grammar nazis here :lol:

Yup, it's a corrupt old world and that's why it so nice to hear about you wanting to work in a field that contributes so much :)
Don't worry I won't tell you're underage ;) Oh, good , glad you guys stayed friends and glad he didn't end up pressing charges. So you do taekwondo - I've never tried it myself (I have more of a grappling background) but I've heard good things about it :)

Now that's a reaction that inspires me to really keep working on the character. Thanks! :glomp:

I think that makes a case for Tyr possibly being attracted to Rabbit :eyes: When Rabbit's arrested for stripping, Tyr's amused and rather kind towards him. But when banana man exposes himself, Tyr breaks his nose. Food for thought....

Ah, thank you :) The ears are so much fun!
Nope, he hasn't heard form her for over a decade (and he's preferred it that way.)
