Dalek Week: Parents by ggns Dalek Week: Parents by ggns
Not even gonna lie, this is saved on my computer as cuties.psd~

My version of what Alek's parents could have looked like when they were young, based on the real Franz Ferdinand and Sophie who looked kind of adorbs [link] in their family photos. :'(

You have no idea how happy I am that you included old Ferdinand's gorgeous mustache.

I have to admit my first thought was "Daleks? What do they have to do with The Leviathan Trilogy?"And then I just felt silly.

This is a great picture, and I can't wait for the rest of the week.

Hahaha, it's funny how often that happens! I've had people add this to Doctor Who collections and sat there scratching my head wondering if they actually looked at it.. :? :giggle:
Thanks! :aww: Me too! :XD:

This looks really sweet! Franz Ferdinand looks just like his pictures! Sophie is a little prettier and a little less uptight, but everyone looks uptight in those awfully posed and still photographs.

Thanks! :glomp: Yeah, old photographs are pretty crazy that way, haha. It makes you wonder how many people were actually really bubbly and just looked uptight in their pictures, lol. :giggle:

Yeah, definitely. Though, portraits were even worse, because you could never be sure if the person actually looked like that or not. Especially with royals. If you didn't picture Elizabeth as pretty in her portraits, you were hanged.

And no problems, your art was very good!

I love Franz and Sophie! I'm not kidding; they're one of my favorite real-life couples. (I'm not going to say the other two, because they're still alive and hopefully will be for a while.)

But, yeah, anything Franz and Sophie, I love. Except if, you know, it's mean or something....

Coming from the same country as alek whenever I visit my family I just can't stop the feels. Visiting the swiss border and even hohenberg. XD

Actually, I'd totally forgot about them until I read the books. Then I checked my notes and THEY WEREN'T THERE. I'd just put like "archduke assassinated in Sarajevo" and a date. I never hated myself more.... I do memorials for them now. ^^
