Hey, I...don't think that's how you wrap a sling...and that Heir baby is...really tiny. Where'd he get the host body from anyway? That's tiny preemie size. Then again, I might be forgetting that newborns are tiny anyway...
My hand slipped and I drew
's Dalek X more. Because damn it, her human-Dalek design is so much better on the show *slams fist on table*. Also, her human-Dalek Inquisitor General is awesome. It was originally just supposed to be the top left, but then my thoughts started running off the wall. I'd also forgotten that there was a scar on his chest the last time I drew him.
It spun into realizing the massive difference between a universe in which Dalek X never mutates himself and his Heir, and one where they do mutate. At least normal!Dalek X can have some discretion in that he can deny affection for his offspring, and be taken seriously. Of course, he even denies it to himself, though knowing he does have affection and completely and utterly rues it.
The human form, being part human and all, probably has to contort hard to hide it. Like I have to contort to figure out all this while keeping him in character. It's not easy. The struggle is made more difficult by the fact that no one seems to know how to knock, or at least announce their presence. Fortunately, even in an infant's body, the Heir retains a good portion of Dalek intellect and is able to play it cool should the need arise...though it lost its sense of object permanence. Which is a situation for another day.
It's the difference between "The Overseer does not know that my Heir is accompanying me." and "Overseer, you did not see anything!
This never happened!"
I need to work on the Heir as an adult...
Stupid sexy Flanders...
