Got a job! Granted, it is a serving job, minimum wage and weirder hours than I am used to, but it is SOMETHING!!!! I'm so happy! I'll have some kind of income and won't be living on the streets. Seriously, things were getting very bad for a bit there.
Some more caps for you guys. I also did some new artwork.

- Emily's Mother: This piece is based on the X-Files. Another weird kid story, much like my Doctor Who piece. Scully is at her family's home for Christmas. She has dreams about a her sister, who was killed my men who mistook her for Scully, who tells her go to a child. It's a supernatural deal, in that Scully eventually finds the little girl, Emily. The girl is downright identical to Scully's sister, Melissa, when she was a little girl, so she has this crazy idea that Melissa had a child she adopted out. During all this time, Scully is reminded of the fact that she is unable to have children, as she was abducted and experimented on by either aliens or the military (which is up for debate) and had her insides destroyed. She always wanted to have children too.
Scully has the FBI run a check against Emily's DNA to see if the girl is indeed her niece. On Christmas Eve, the test results come back. They yield the fact that Emily is not her niece. She is rather, Scully's daughter. Wrap that one around your head. So for Christmas, Scully literally gets a daughter she never knew she had. I made this with lighter colors because it's happy news and I wanted to make it match up with the Christmas lights in the scene as well. I'm not usually a fan of a TON of text like this, but it was necessary here, I felt. The story had to be told.
- Let Your Love Shine: This piece is based around the gift of a child that is given to Amy and Rory. It is pretty messed up, but it's the land of Doctor Who. It's very hard to explain, but Amy is kidnapped when she is pregnant, but the Doctor and her husband believe her to be with them until she goes into labor and they have to go find her. The people that kidnapped Melody, their daughter, after Amy gives birth, are holding Amy hostage. Rory and the Doctor save both of them, giving Amy her freedom and both of them their daughter. She is unfortunately taken from them again quite soon, but that is another story... This scene is when Rory first sees his wife and daughter together and they are all together as a family. I just love it. I couldn't find the right words for it because it's just one of those types of scenes. Hence, no words.
- Realization: This is one of my favorite scenes in the X-Files both because of the content and the imagery. It is just fantastic. For those not familiar, it is based on two episodes. In the episode "Patient X", Scully goes to a dam with the character, Cassandra, after being brought there by an assassin. The scene is incredibly eerie, as a barrage of faceless aliens appear on the bridge. The episode ends there.
In "The Red and the Black", everyone that was on the bridge is found burned to death, aside from Scully, who lands herself in the hospital. Cassandra is missing, which is odd because she could not walk away, being partially paralyzed. Scully cannot remember anything in regards to the night, so Mulder brings her to a doctor who puts her under hypnosis. Here is where the realization comes into play. She remembers the night, in which the assassins came to kill her and her fellow abductees. However, a group of faceless aliens set them on fire, only to have a UFO appear over them and attacked the faceless aliens, protecting the abductees. They then lifted Cassandra out of her wheelchair and into their ship.
The wall itself shows the scene in which the UFO arrives above Scully and Cassandra. Scully is a full fledged skeptic, despite being abducted, so when she remembers this in the doctors office, she gets a full blown realization of what happened. There is a moment when she sees everything and just yells, "Oh, my god!" which I was initially going to put on the wall. But, it didn't seem to fit. I think it looks better without the wording.
