(Seriously title limit, way to make me HAVE to squish everything in just to get that last letter to fit
SCREW YOU TOO.)
So then! Those of you who watch Colour [link]
will have already seen this (and yay for you 8D *showers you all with love
* ) But I'm totally not sure how many of you read the comic's commentary here [link]
(if you do read/watch my webcomic, I'd strongly reccommend that you should read this, in case there's anything any particular pages might leave you in questioning
) Hence, you would have missed the drabble I wrote for this!
But before I get onto that
This was me continuing my goal of trying to pump out more pregfur related art recently, since I've been rediculously lacking in it this year :C It was drawn for that purpose, and also trying a new female character for the theme. Also for something more serious, since this situation for this particular character is... not really the most joyful D: To those of you who read my webcomic/are familiar with Stanley and Darlene (warthogs~) here, I'm sure you understand why >>;-----
Darlene could not help but wonder if it was wrong to feel a hidden sense of relief at the situation. After several years of marriage, and Stanley's nearly weekly insistence of claiming what he had earned as a right, through marriage, she still could not stomach their marital consummation without forced tolerance. She would shut her eyes, or stare blankly upwards at the ceiling panels, as she lay very still, while her husband thrust himself upon her.
At first, Stanley dismissed her behaviour as virgin nerves, that she would grow accustomed in time. When "in time" had passed, he grew somewhat irritated, at her meek, immobile response. When he dared to hint at the matter, all it made her do was submit into looking directly at him during, which he found, was actually more unnerving than anything. He hated her wide-eyed, timid expression, looking like a captured prey. He decided he preferred her paying attention somewhere else, since she clearly wasn't growing to enjoy the experience, and he sure wasn't about to stop doing it.
Because he was her husband, Darlene knew she could not refuse him to bed her. But it was this, which allowed her the shortest of reprieves that even Stanley could not protest to. It was accepted as a general fact; women with child were to be left alone in the marital bed. It was considered neither safe nor proper for them to lie with their husbands in such a condition. They were to be treated with care, and respect, to rest for their coming child.
Even Stanley did not dare to break such conventions. He slumped into his side of the bed, turned his back to her, and fell asleep quickly. She would lie awake a little while longer, grateful of a consistent stream of nights that she did not have to endure the unpleasant ordeal. But on the other hand, she felt guilty. She did not mean to dislike their coupling but... could she really be blamed? He did not trouble himself to make it any more enjoyable for her; he was not given to treating her with tenderness, in their bed. All he cared for was his own pleasure. And unfortunately, his own pleasure did not involve making Darlene feel at ease with it.
Indeed, there was little of anything in their marriage that Stanley troubled to make Darlene feel at ease in.
And there you have it ;; Typical awkward/unpleasantary between these two... because Stanley never fails to make everything in their marriage thus |C One could say this image is a bit of a prequel to the webcomic (since we assume she's pregnant with Graff here, who is born at the beginning of the story).
But yeah... really wanted to capture Darlene's "hidden relief/guilt" at the scenario, that is descibed. And yeah... random fact: Stanley probably sleeps half naked (save for in cold seasons) 8C Like anyone cares for THAT, I'm sure. *withers* But yes... that's about it 8| New/unseen art will come after this, I promise!
