The music they played was weird and the setting made it seem like this was a movie about a creepy guy who charms a plain girl and then murders her.
If Tien was alive he’d be a year older than Shallan.
Just thought y’all should know that
okay now we need to talk about charming sweet drop-dead-gorgeous Tien having an awkward crush on Shallan
that should be a thing now.
Shallan seeing Tien and thinking, “How is HE the bridgeboy’s brother? he’s so… attractive”. WAIT. DID I JUST THINK HE WAS ATTRACTIVE? *casually sketches Tien and hides the drawings of him away from everyone else*
Tien noticing Shallan’s interest in the ecology of the Shattered Plains
Tien and Shallan nerding out together about rocks and plants and cremlings
Tien bringing Shallan specimens to cheer her up like he used to bring rocks to Kaladin
Shallan sketching Tien’s excited expressions when she’s feeling lonely and isolated
Kaladin seeing them sitting together looking at plants and shaking his head
Adolin feeling jealous of Tien for taking up so much of his time with Shallan, before Tien waves Adolin over and shows him a particularly shiny rock. “Look Adolin! It changes colors when you move it in the sun! I want you to have this one, so you can start a collection too”.
lithromantic Tien who really likes seeing Adolin and Shallan enjoying each other’s company and wants them to be happy together
nonbinary Tien trying on Shallan’s dresses sometimes
Shallan doing sketches and then lightweaving masks of Tien in different gender presentations
Shallan and Tien exploring the warcamps/Urithiru together in lightweaving personas so Shallan isn’t recognized as the ‘Lady Radiant’ and Tien can look less masculine
Adolin finding out and being sort of anxious about it and Shallan thinking he’s going to be judgemental about it and getting ready to defend Tien but no, Adolin just wants to know if she could do something like that for him too sometimes?
Adolin giving Kaladin crap for being such a grouch when his little brother is a walking ray of sunshine
Shallan and Tien talking about Jasnah in hushed tones of awe and idolization
(Shallan mentions seeing the strain on Jasnah’s face when they were aboard the Wind’s Pleasure and Tien starts leaving pretty rocks outside Jasnah’s door with little glyph notes about what makes them special)
Tien noticing Renarin hanging out around the edges of conversation and going out of his way to include Renarin without making him uncomfortable.
Tien bringing Renarin a rock ready to explain why it’s so cool but Renarin just gets it.
Tien dumping out his whole collection on Renarin’s bed and them spending five hours getting increasingly excited because Renarin sees things Tien missed and it just makes them all ten times better.
Renarin finding a rock and holding onto it for a week because he’s afraid Tien won’t like it but then he finally shows him and Tien has to go show everyone else immediately because Renarin is the best rock hunter Tien has ever met and who cares that he’s only found one?
Tien and Renarin developing a rock code and leaving lines of rocks outside each other’s doors.
Tien and Renarin gossiping about their brothers via rocks and Adolin can’t figure out how Tien always knows when something happened because Adolin hasn’t even seen Tien since then and Kaladin sure as Damnation didn’t tell him anything.
Renarin’s box getting damaged in an attack and Tien offering to make a new one. And then making six instead, and going to Navani to make four more with fabrials incorporated because he doesn’t want Renarin to just have some box, but the right box. And Renarin hoards them all even though Adolin is super jealous because Stormfather those are awesome.
Nonbinary Tien and trans Renarin founding their own table at meals that has both men’s food and women’s food. Inviting the others to eat with them regardless of gender. Jasnah joins them first because she’s never cared much for Vorin gender roles. Navani dragging Dalinar over so he can’t use food as an excuse to avoid her. Shallan falling in love with spicy men’s food and Kaladin having the biggest sweet tooth ever.
Lightweaver Tien using his carvings as the basis for his illusions and keeping a small army of miniatures in his pockets just in case. Renarin struggling with his illusions because he has no artistic ability but then he finds out that if he watches Tien carve or Shallan draw, and if he pays enough attention to how they capture an image, then he can recreate it. Tien only carving when Renarin’s around so that Renarin never misses out.
this is all very good but Tien would so be an Edgedancer: attributes are loving and healing, associated with quartz and crystal in soulcasting, second Ideal is about caring for those others don’t - that’s completely Tien.
My heart is breaking, guys.

Another 2012 thing I fixed and finished =)
Morpheus is hard as hell to draw. I would love to do a really, really nice picture at some point, but that hair is not something that meshes well with my usual lineart.
In the meantime, doodles like this are about all I can do >.<
